Have your say on Redcliffs

• By Sarla Donovan

A PUBLIC drop-in session

today will give people the chance

to comment on plans for the

Redcliffs village enhancement

project.

The project is now in the

design phase and has three main

focus areas: Safety improvements

on Main Rd, creating a userfriendly

environment within

the village and upgrading the

Moncks Bay car parking area.

Redcliffs Residents Association

member Peter Croft said it

was important that people got

involved and made submissions

on the plans.

“We want to say (to the city

council) yes, we’ve been waiting

now for a long time, we’ve

been very badly affected by

the earthquakes, we’ve had our

school taken from us and now

it’s our turn,” he said.

“We want the upgrading and

beautification of the shopping

centre. The city council talk

about Redcliffs being a corridor

on the way to Sumner but

we’re saying to them we are a

destination in our own right.”

Streetscape enhancements

shown in the city council’s

concept plans include extending

the pavement outwards at

the Beachville Rd/Main Rd

intersection.

This would create space for

seating and cycle parking to

encourage Coastal Pathway

users to stop and visit, the plan

suggests.

paved, to unify the village centre.

Further along, on the south

side of Moncks Bay about 200m

east of the Christchurch Yacht

Club, plans show an upgraded,

20-space car park and a nearby

pedestrian island for Main Rd.

The enhancement project

is part of the Main Rd Master

Plan, adopted by the city council

in 2014 with the purpose of

improving the safety and overall

look of the commercial centres

and activity points along the

route.

Some changes have already

been made during SCIRT

repairs and as part of progress

on the Coastal Pathway,

including the traffic signals on

Augusta St.

Urumau Reserve plan on hold

Community

board seeks

more detail

• By Sarla Donovan

AN UPDATED development

plan for Lyttelton’s Urumau

Reserve has been put on hold.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board rejected

the city council staff

recommendation to adopt the

plan at a special meeting on

Monday.

Board

chairwoman

Pam Richardson

said it wanted

more background

information on

the work that

Pam

Richardson

has been done

on tracks, trails

and other areas of

development in the reserve.

She would not specify what

type of information the board

is seeking, saying only that it

needed “further clarification” on

some issues.

“All the work that’s been done

in the reserve, we just wanted a

bit more background on it.”

The aim of the development

plan, originally created in 2008,

was to increase public access

and use of the reserve, control

pests and weeds, and enhance

the township’s natural landscape

and birdlife.

Developments in the 10 years

since then have included new

mountain bike tracks, steps

and signage, native plant revegetation,

weed control and a

developing pest management

strategy.

Ms Richardson said the

board had raised a number of

questions with city council staff

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

over historical development in

the reserve, and it was now a

matter of waiting for them to

come back with answers.

The plan would be approved

when the board members had

“enough information,” she said.

There is no timeframe in place

at the moment, Ms Richardson

said, and “it might take some

time to work through.”

A city council report on

the proposed plan said it had

attracted an “unexpected” level

of public interest, with 625

Key concerns raised included

privacy, parking and traffic

issues for neighbouring

Cob Cottage repairs get

green light from council

HISTORIC PENFOLD’S Cob

Cottage will be repaired.

The city council has approved

the project to repair the

earthquake-damaged 19thcentury

cottage.

Work will include stabilising

the remaining heritage fabric.

Some badly-damaged sections

will be encased in glass to

provide protection.

“We are moving quickly to

protect this landmark cottage

and preserve our past,” city

council head of parks Brent

Smith said.

“With this approach, we can

retain some of the cottage’s

original sod and cob fabric and

keep the site’s history alive.”

He said it would showcase the

simplicity and workmanship of

the early European settler homes.

“Securing a window to the

early days of our city.”

A cob trail and stronger links

with Ferrymead Heritage Park

have also been proposed for the

cottage.

Built in 1862 by Captain James

Penfold, the cottage in Scott

Park, Ferrymead, provides a

tangible link to local history.

aground on the Sumner Bar in

He left the sea for a working

life on the railways after helping

to bring over the first sleepers

line.

Following Captain Penfold’s

departure from the area,

migrants lived in the cottage

from the late 1870s until 1908.

It then fell into disrepair, but

was rebuilt in the 1940s, using

OLD SCHOOL:

The band

during

marching

practice with

new silver

instruments in

1951.

Band seeks new blood

• By Sarla Donovan

ONE OF the oldest brass bands

in Canterbury is on the hunt for

new blood.

The Sumner Brass Band

started in the 1880s and played

together until World War 2.

In 1950, a public meeting

decided the district should once

again have a brass band of its

own. The Sumner Silver Band

was born under bandmaster

G.F. Sauer (the father of John

Sauer who retired from playing

cornet at the end of last year).

Sumner has had its silver band

on and off ever since.

Peter Croft has played with

them for the past 18 years. He

said the reason for the name

change could be because

initially brass was cheaper than

silver plated – but they were now

about the same.

“Maybe brass was working

class and silver sounded better.

When new instruments were

supplied in 1950 they were silver.”

The band meets for practice

once a week on Thursday evenings,

7.30-9pm, at the Redcliffs

Mt Pleasant Bowling Club.

It’s comprised of a range of

people from all ages including

primary school pupils right

up to those “one step from the

morgue,” said Mr Croft.

Over the past year, the band

has performed at school fairs,

community concerts, and the

city council’s Summertime

Festival.

Upcoming events include the

Anzac service for the Sumner/

Redcliffs RSA and a combined

concert with the Christchurch

Pipe Band next month.

The Sumner Silver Band also

enters local and provincial competitions.

Mr Croft said anyone

able to read music and play a

‘brass’ instrument is welcome

to join.

Naomi Darvill said.

“They start as a cafe and

From 8am there’ll be smoothie

bowls, healthy cabinet food and

cooked breakfasts; burgers, pizzas

and raw salads over lunch and

into the evening bar snacks and

seasonal blackboard specials

complementing the lunch menu.

“We’re going for seasonal,

organic and locally sourced so

the blackboard will be changeable

every couple of days. We’ve got a

couple of really creative chefs on

board,” said Ms Darvill.

They are also looking at being a

live music venue and have booked

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

by Holly Ringland

The most enchanting debut novel of 2018, this is an

irresistible, deeply moving and romantic story of a young

girl, daughter of an abusive father, who has to learn the

hard way that she can break the patterns of the past, live on

her own terms and find her own strength.

THIS BOOK

After her family suffers a tragedy, nine-year-old Alice Hart is forced to leave her idyllic

seaside home. She is taken in by her grandmother, June, a flower farmer who raises

Alice on the language of Australian native flowers, a way to say the things that are too

hard to speak.

Under the watchful eye of June and the women who run the farm, Alice settles, but

grows up increasingly frustrated by how little she knows of her family’s story. In her

early twenties, Alice’s life is thrown into upheaval again when she suffers devastating

betrayal and loss. Desperate to outrun grief, Alice flees to the dramatically beautiful

central Australian desert. In this otherworldly landscape Alice thinks she has found

solace, until she meets a charismatic and ultimately dangerous man.

Spanning two decades, set between sugar cane fields by the sea, a native Australian

flower farm, and a celestial crater in the central desert, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

follows Alice’s unforgettable journey, as she learns that the most powerful story she

will ever possess is her own.

Hunting El Chapo:

Taking Down the World’s Most-Wanted Drug Lord

by Andrew Hogan, Douglas Century

This is the incredible story of D.E.A. Special Agent Andrew Hogan’s seven-year-long

chase to capture El Chapo, a multibillionaire drug-lord and escape-artist posing as a

Mexican Robin Hood, who in reality was a brutal sociopath responsible for the murders

of thousands. His greedy campaign to take over his rivals’ territories resulted in an

unprecedented war with a body count of over 100,000.

M Rule – Firstly, no

mention that this was

originally a bay and part

of the estuary and filled

in as a rubbish dump.

City council rules were no

building on dump sites. What

has changed? Some years

ago, a high school on the

McCormacks Bay dump site

was planned – the city council

disallowed this. What has

changed?

The site is beside a very

dangerous estuary with many

drownings to its credit and

we all know how children are

attracted to water.

Who will be responsible

book

release

We follow Hogan on his quest to achieve the seemingly impossible: to cross the border

into Mexico and arrest El Chapo, the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, a billionaire and

Public Enemy No. 1, who had been evading capture for more than a decade and had

earned a reputation for being utterly untouchable.

This intimate thriller tells how Hogan single-mindedly and methodically climbed the ladder within the hierarchy of the Sinaloa

Cartel – the world’s wealthiest and most powerful drug-trafficking organization – by creating one of the most sophisticated

undercover operations in the history of the D.E.A. From infiltrating Chapo’s inner circle to leading a white-knuckle manhunt with

an elite brigade of Mexican Marines, Hogan left no stone unturned in his hunt for the world’s most powerful drug kingpin.

SHIFTING: Some readers have questioned the suitability of Redcliffs Park as the proposed new home for

Redcliffs School.

and in charge once children

have left the school for home?

Particularly as it has been

decided that

they will use

the coastal

pathway?

Many

questions

have not

been

addressed by

the school on

this matter.

Colin

and Emma

Lumb –

While we could have done

without the stress and hours

of work over the past few years

to keep our local school, we

are now so close to making

real tangible progress with

having our

kura and our

kids back in the

neighbourhood.

The Ministry of

Education has

confirmed that

the buildings

would be

mainly situated

on a building

platform up

by Main Rd,

at a similar

height to the

old site on the other side of

the road. There are many

potential positives about the

Redcliffs Park site, especially

the proximity to the coastal

pathway and the natural

classroom of the estuary itself.

Regarding concerns about

flooding, with buildings at

the higher level and access

from Main Rd, minor events

would be managed as at many

schools around the country.

Anything more significant

would likely be part of broader

scale disruption around

the neighbourhood and the

region.

As for the tsunami risk,

with the location being only

the width of the road away

from the old site, the risk and

consequent plans for either site

are similar.

Real Hope For Long Term

Back Pain Sufferers

After more than ten years in

New Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups

have now gained a reputation

for success with long-term

sufferers of Back pain. Inversion

New Zealand was started

by Dave and Nancy Hare,

Dave had suffered over

twenty years of back pain

from Degenerated Discs and

had basically given up and

decided to just live with it. “To

me surgery was never an

option” he said “as long as I

still could walk, there was

hope”.

Dave had tried everything;

every time he was overseas

he would search for anything

that could possibly help.

While on one of these

overseas trips ten years ago,

Dave discovered the Teeter

Hang-Ups. “The first time I

tried it, the pain disappeared

and I was completely pain

free for about 30 minutes,

nothing had done that” he

told me. Dave never believed

it would fix him, “as specialists

had told me it was irreversible,

I now knew I had a place

to go every time I wanted

some serious relief”.

To Dave’s surprise the more

he used the table the longer

the pain stayed away, until

after nearly three months he

was completely pain free, “I

couldn’t believe it’ he told me

“I had spent large amounts of

money on every form of treatment

available and here

was something I had never

heard of sorting it out for

me in a very short period of

time” It was then Dave

decided to introduce Teeter

into New Zealand and Inversion

NZ was born.

Over the years INZ have

helped thousands of people

get some serious relief and

have seen results in not only

backs, but necks, hips,

knees, posture, circulation,

increased height, blood

pressure and lots more.

“We have testimonials from

people with over fifty years

of back problems and even

have them in a number of

schools in New Zealand for

their special needs children”

he told me, “the blood to the

brain helps these kids and

the results are excellent”

What this means for the

aging population is that it

helps maintain the health of

the brain as we all get older.

Dave told me that he

realised that, had he not

tried the Teeter for himself

he would still be suffering, “I

would still be a miserable

grumpy bugger, living with

pain, that is why we do the

shows, people need to try it

for themselves” he told me

“most people actually get

off with the pain either gone

or considerably less” he said

“we let the tables do the

talking”

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW

THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It uses gravity to apply traction,

the traction gently opens the discs and as

they open up they create suction, this

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on transfer

of fluid from the surrounding tissue to

keep them healthy and hydrated and over

the years as discs get thinner with age, they

lose the ability to take on fluid (just like

squeezing a sponge) and they start to

de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration.

The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. This brings

back lost height (most people will regain

around 2 CM of height), it separates the

nerve roots far more effectively and returns

quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Frank Harwood (84) of Turangi using his Teeter, Frank has been

Inverting for over eight years and has found it keeps him young

Posture: Poor posture is one of the

major cases of pain and is a major contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age. A difference in leg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, as they continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a machine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

you have nothing to lose and chances are, a

lot to gain.

Here in New Zealand,

Dr Giresh Kanji, one of the countries most

respected Pain Specialists completed a PhD on

how humans experience pain and then

researched lower back pain, writing "Fix Your

Back" and then spent a few years researching

neck pain, headache and migraine and wrote

"Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine",

both books are in most bookstores.

Dr Kanji discovered in the research that the

disc is the most likely source of low back pain

and Inversion showed the best results of all the

trials conducted. Three studies showed a 60%

reduction in pain and one showed a 75%

reduction in surgery for people with disc

prolapse.

Dr Kanji endorses Inversion as the best method

to manage back pain, he has personally been

using the Teeter Inversion tables for his own

low back pain, has Teeter Inversion tables at

both of his clinics in Wellington (The Sports

and Pain Clinic) and has had such success that

he is now conducting the largest study in the

World on Inversion Therapy. In his own words,

"these things are gold and inversion should be

a first line treatment for low back pain”.

Fines for

illegal

fishing

A STRING of offending in

Canterbury’s two marine

reserves over summer has

prompted warnings from the

Department of Conservation

to check the location of marine

reserves before going fishing.

Last week, four Canterbury

men were prosecuted and fined

in the district court for illegally

fishing in one of these reserves.

Grant Richard Burgess,

James Cunningham, Sean Cunningham

and Mark Donald

Macalister pleaded guilty to

charges of taking marine life

from Pōhatu Marine Reserve

on the southeast side of Banks

Peninsula.

DOC rangers on a routine

boat patrol of the reserve saw

the offenders fishing from

two separate boats in January.

The men told the rangers they

weren’t aware of the marine

reserve.

Their fines ranged from $500

to $750 plus court costs, and

Judge MacAskill said there was

no reasonable excuse for their

actions and they ought to have

made sure what protected areas

there were in the locality.

National

List MP Nuk

Korako writes

about how

the legacy

of those who

fought in

World War

1 and other

conflicts continues through

our faithful remembrance

on Anzac Day

APRIL 25 marks the anniversary

of the Anzac landing on the

Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915.

We remember and honour our

2779 New Zealanders who were

killed on the battlefields of Gallipoli

and those who served and

returned.

We also remember our Australian

brothers who fought and

died beside New Zealanders not

only at Gallipoli but in many

other conflicts far from home.

First commemorated in 1916 in

remembrance of those who died

in that campaign, Anzac Day has

come to signify so much more.

I saw the evidence of this personally

when, in my previous career

in tourism, I developed and

escorted four Hikoi Maumahara

– Journeys of Remembrance

following in the footsteps of the

New Zealand pioneer and 28 th

Maori Battalion.

I have stood on the battlefields

of Gallipoli, Passchendaele,

Messines, the Somme, El

Alamein, Tobruk, Tebaga Gap

(where 2 nd Lieutenant Moana

Nui a Kiwa won his Victoria

Cross), Crete, Cassino, Orsonga,

Florence, Faenza and Trieste,

and visited the graves where so

many New Zealanders rest in

foreign soil.

We were accompanied on

those tours by several veterans

of the 28 th Maori Battalion and

many whanau members. Those

families brought with them the

only physical connections they

had left of their loved ones in

the form of medals won on the

battlefields we visited, letters,

bibles and photos, along with the

dreaded telegrams informing

them of the death of loved ones.

Local

News

Now

Remembering our fallen ‘brothers’

Fire rages, homes at risk

To me personally, it was a

powerful reminder of the value

of those individual memories

from those global events, and

the original documents and

keepsakes that have been carried

through the generations.

Truly family taoka or

treasures. My wife Chris and I

travelled to Europe on our own

hikoi to find my great uncle’s

grave and when we finally found

his resting place outside the town

of Armentieres on the Belgium-

French boarder, we had a tangi

and karakia to give him the

poroporoaki (farewell) that he

had never had, and before leaving

we placed a piece of Arahura

pounamu (greenstone) at the

foot of his headstone.

We all carry the legacy of our

grandparents, parents and family

members who fought for our

country and it is our responsibility

to ensure that our children

carry that legacy forward to the

next generation.

Today e hoa ma (friends),

we continue with that legacy

through our faithful remembrance

of Anzac Day. This is

a time to honour our morehu

(veterans) contributions to the

peace, freedom and security our

country enjoys today.

We will remember them.

Protecting

vulnerable children

Individuals or organisations that receive

state funding and deal with children

should already be familiar with the

Vulnerable Children Act 2014. The

provisions of the Act are being phased

in over a period with obligations to

be complied with by July 1, 2018 and

July 1, 2019. The Act applies to most

organisations that employ or engage

workers to provide regulated services

to children under the age of 18 (and 21

where the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989

applies). For those who are affected, it is

important to remain vigilant in ensuring

you meet your legislative obligations.

The Act has wide application and it is

easy to be caught by its provisions.

If you receive State funding, whether

direct or indirect, and carry out

“regulated services” such as welfare

services, education services, health

services, transport services, or any

services specified by the Act, then you

may be bound to comply with the Act.

The Act is part of an effort to promote

the well-being of children and provide

a safer environment for them. Affected

organisations must have a child

protection policy in place and carry out

mandatory periodic safety checks for

anyone defined as a “children’s worker”.

If you don’t already have a policy in

place, the Government has issued a list

of regulations that may be adopted.

These regulations can be accessed

online.

From an employer’s perspective, it is

important to understand the distinction

between “core workers” and “noncore

workers”. Core workers work

alone with children, and have primary

care and responsibility over them.

Non-core workers have regular but

limited contact and are never left alone

with children. If a core worker has a

conviction for an offence specified in

the Act (for example, indecent assault,

wounding with intent), then that

individual will not be able to work with

children unless they have been granted

an exemption.

All existing core workers must have

checks completed by July 1, 2018 and

all existing non-core workers need

checks completed by July 1, 2019.

A breach may result in a conviction with

a maximum fine of up to $50,000.

If you have an existing policy in place,

it is recommended that you review it.

If you don’t have a policy in place but

think the Act may apply to you, taking

action is recommended to ensure you

meet your obligations. Young Hunter’s

Adam Curtin provides advice on these

matters and can assist you if you have

queries.

Rotary aids Red Cross

Ferrymead

Rotarians

helped out

the Red

Cross with

its annual

Red Rose

Day. Member Barbara

Crooks writes about

the fundraiser

FIVE THOUSAND roses

were sold in Christchurch

and 6000 in rural

Canterbury and on the

West Coast.

Red Cross has been selling

roses for more than 30

years.

For a gold coin, you

could have a red rose for a

loved one, for your granny,

or for someone else who

takes your fancy.

Recipients’ faces certainly

light up when they

are given a rose. One

couple fell into a passionate

embrace and kiss.

One woman bought five

roses, gave one to each

person manning the stall,

took two to other shoppers

and one for herself.

Many people said they

were so grateful for what

Red Cross did after the

earthquakes that they

readily donate for a rose;

some even donated and

didn’t take a rose.

Red Cross certainly does

plenty in the community.

Take 2017 in Canterbury

and on the West Coast for

instance: 174,676 meals

on wheels delivered; 3022

children given free, basic

first-aid training; 4351

people driven to appointments;

four lives saved

through Red Cross-provided

defibrillators; 11,000

hazard/first-aid apps

downloaded; 36 response

volunteers trained and 39

former refugees helped

into work.

“We couldn’t do what

we do without the help of

volunteers and groups like

Rotary,” said Fiona Sawers,

Canterbury West Coast

Red Cross community

fundraising co-ordinator.

“Thank you for braving

the weather and helping

out.” Ferrymead Rotary

helps many organisations

through members’ time

and/or funding.

The club also collects

for the Multiple Sclerosis

and Parkinson’s Society

and the Guide Dog Red

Puppy Appeal. It provides

a Christmas hamper for a

needy family through the

Methodist Mission and

has supported medical

research, the Charity Hospital,

and Women’s Refuge

– Te Whare Hauora.

Club members help the

Mt Pleasant Community

Centre with planting in

McCormacks Bay, and

have volunteered to help

Rose Centre research into

swallowing.

Our People

Estella Hungerford

Young surfer hungry for more

Sumner’s Estella

Hungerford won the

under-16 girls division

in the Emerson’s

South Island surfing

championship in Dunedin

over Easter, hopefully

cementing her chances

of being selected for the

New Zealand team to

travel to the International

Surfing Association world

junior championships.

Sarla Donovan catches

up with the 16-year-old

You must be feeling good

coming off a couple of

divisional wins in Dunedin and

at the recent Duke Festival of

Surfing – what does it mean for

you going forward?

I do have a good placing

at the moment in the overall

New Zealand rankings. I just

moved into second after this

last win, which is good going

into when they choose the ISA

team. Each country takes I

think two girls and four boys

for each age division, and they

compete with every other

surfing nation in the world. It’s

at national representative level

which I’ve never done before. My

friend Tegan did and she said

it was amazing going to see the

different cultures and different

places. It’s in Tokyo this year. I

think I find out near the end of

May (if I’m in the team.)

Can you remember your first

time on a surfboard?

Not really, I think I was quite

young. I didn’t really get into it

until I was about 11 and then I

really enjoyed it. I did my first

competition that summer, the

women’s Canterbury champs,

and I got third and was pretty

stoked and that kind of kicked

everything off. Competitions are

great; you get to meet so many

cool people and it’s a good way to

improve your surfing and go to

lots of new places.

SUCCESS: Estella Hungerford currently ranks second in New Zealand’s under-16 surfing division.

It’s not something you took to

straight away, so what is it you

like about surfing?

My dad and step mum (Stoked

Surf School owner Donna

Henderson) taught all their six

kids at the same time so it was a

real family thing which I really

enjoy, it’s a good way to spend

time with them. That’s probably

a lot bigger than my competition

drive, getting to spend time with

them each weekend in the water.

All the kids can surf. I’m the

oldest, then the youngest is eight,

then there’s two 10-year-olds and

then the two girls are 13 and 12.

Two of them – the middle child

from each family – aren’t that

into it but they still come out all

the time.

Are you competitive among

yourselves?

Ava, who is 12, pushes me a lot;

she’s pretty hardcore and I love

surfing with her, she’s hilarious,

and she pushes me. There’s a

bit of friendly competition but

nothing too serious.

So you’ve carried on

competing since that first one?

My dad was really good; he

took me all over the South Island

first and then we ventured up

to the North Island surfing

competitions. It’s different up

there, all the girls generally

come from really strong surfing

backgrounds and have been

surfing since they were quite

young. The waves are a lot

warmer and there’s some pretty

amazing breaks. Not that there’s

none down here, but it’s a pretty

high level of competition.

How good is it being able to

compete with your step mum

and sister?

It’s definitely good to have

their support. Mainly me and

Ava at the moment, but the

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

younger kids will eventually

get into it. Dad and Donna just

bought a campervan so that we

don’t spend as much money on

accommodation and flights.

We’re away a lot of the time so

it’s getting a lot of use. It does

get quite messy at times. But it’s

pretty good.

What’s your proudest

achievement so far?

I was pretty stoked to get my

first national level win this year

at Whangamata and then backed

it up with two others, which was

even more amazing. So it’s been

a good year so far.

success on the water

How much time do you spend

on the water each week?

I try to get out at least once

a day. I used to surf every day

before school but it’s quite dark

at the moment and getting a bit

cold so I usually go once after

school and try to get two surfs

in on Saturdays and Sundays.

I’ve been trying to go out in all

conditions lately because, at

competitions, quite often the

waves are really bad so you’ve got

to get used to surfing in all types.

Surfing has been dominated

by men for a long time but that

seems to be changing – why

do you think more girls and

women are getting into it?

Maybe the female role models

have just improved so much

lately like (pro-surfers) Stephanie

Gilmore and Carissa Moore

kind of leading the way on

the women’s ASP world tour. I

reckon it’s a lot easier now than

it used to be for girls. Donna is a

big advocate for women’s surfing

which is good, she pushes that

a lot, especially in the South

Island.

How is it different competing

as a women – are the

competitions organised any

differently?

Not really – there’s generally

not as many women, but at the

Duke Festival in the longboard

division there were more entries

than the men’s so they decided

to make the prize money equal

which was really cool. They do

have a lot of men’s divisions

and I do know that quite a few

of the girls were annoyed that

there wasn’t an open women’s

longboard or women’s SUP

(stand-up paddleboard) at the

South Island’s this year. Someone

I know went in the men’s SUP

as ‘Luke’ instead of Lucy so

she could complete which was

really cool, we all supported her.

She didn’t get through but she

definitely had fun.

Is it your goal to be a prosurfer?

I’m not sure. I don’t think so,

but I’ll see what happens. I might

try and do a couple of overseas

competitions and see how I do. I

want to go to university, but I’m

not sure what I want to study.

But I reckon Ava will probably

go pretty far because she’s a lot

younger than me and is at a

much higher level than I was at

her age. It would be cool to see

her go professional.

I’ve heard people describe

surfing as a lifestyle rather than

a sport. What is it for you?

It’s definitely a bit of a lifestyle,

you’re chasing waves a lot trying

to find the best swell. I think it

only really becomes a sport when

you do it competitively and the

rest of the time it’s generally a

lifestyle.

Do people have preconceptions

about you because

you surf?

If I’m paddling out and there’s

a lot of males in the line-up, I’ll

try to get a really good first wave

so that they don’t drop in on me

thinking I’m just a girl who can’t

surf. But my friends at school

don’t really know what it means

so I kind of try to educate them –

it doesn’t always work.

Can you describe what it feels

like to ride a wave?

Well, on a really big wave, you

get a big rush of adrenaline. It’s

an amazing feeling and then, if

you do a really good turn, you’ll

definitely feel awesome; like if

I do a really amazing turn off

and then jump off the wave,

I’ve got a massive smile on my

face because it feels amazing.

But I don’t really know how to

describe it.

Do you have any tips for

beginners?

Get out there as much as you

can. It’s definitely important

to ride the right board. A lot of

people jump on a really small

board because they see the pros

riding it but you definitely try

and start on a really big board.

A soft-top is really good

because it doesn’t hurt. And it’s

helpful to surf with someone

Clair, Dunedin, over Easter.

who’s better than you to improve.

That’s why I like surfing with the

guys out in the water because

they push me a lot.

What’s your favourite place

to surf?

On the West Coast at Fox

River there’s this amazing lefthand

point break, but after the

big storms they’ve had there it’s

not that great at the moment, so

we’re hoping for another storm

to push the banks back up and

make it good again.

If you’re not out surfing,

where would we find you?

That’s a hard question. I just

read a lot, I don’t really do

a lot other than surfing. I’ll

generally just be with my family

somewhere. I go to school at

Haeata Community Campus.

I was at Aranui High School

before it changed to Haeata and

I found it hard to get used to at

first but I really like it now. I can

work at my own level and don’t

have to be held back by annoying

people in my class. And there’s a

lot of one-on-one learning which

suits my style.

What are your favourite

subjects at school?

We don’t really have subjects

but I do enjoy science. And

maths because it challenges me.

Career-wise I don’t know. I want

to go to Otago to study because

they’ve got really good waves

down there, but I don’t know

what I want to study yet.

If you weren’t a surfer, what

would you be?

Probably doing some other

sport like netball or rugby,

something like that, maybe

cricket. Surfing takes up most of

my time, but I do enjoy it so I’m

not missing out.

But problems at first-five could

lead to an interesting brand of

Saturday’s 36-27 bonus point

were already without regular

deg C which is about average for

mid-April. The only problem

with an epic hot summer is we’ve

become too soft for a normal

Christchurch autumn.

The South Island Grom series

finished off in Kaikoura a few

weeks back. Local surfers battled

worse when Josh Toy – who has

been impressive in the No 10

jersey – suffered a concussion

after landing from an awkward

tackle.

Sumner were also without a

proven first-five on their bench

due to division two regular Zack

Grey falling ill. So, when Toy

came off coach Martin Dodgson

found himself in a pickle.

It was former New Brighton

winger/centre Filimoni

Waqainabete (right) who ended

up coming off the bench to slot

in a first-five, raising eyebrows .

“You should have seen the

opposition 10, he looked up

and went what the f***,” said

Dodgson.

The Canterbury sevens player

wasted no time showing he

had the skill set to slot into the

playmaking role by setting up

a try with a well weighted chip

through the defence after a

scrum on the Marist 10 metre

line.

weekend.

Jack Tyro won the under-12

boys and won the overall series

title undefeated over four

contests. Jordan Sparrow was

fourth in Kaikoura and finished

the series second overall in the

under-18 boys. Ava Henderson

continued her great run winning

the under-14 girls and winning

the series as well. Holly Campbell

put in a great performance

to come fourth in the under-14

girls and second in the under-12

girls and achieved the same

placings in the series. Eden Hungerford

won the under-12 girls in

Kaikoura and sister Estella was

second in the under-18 girls.

Local boardriders club, Point

Surf Team, were third overall

in the South Island Grom series

which is a great achievement.

Well done to all the PST groms.

PST is making a come back.

One quiet achiever on the

national contest scene this year

has been Sumner’s Thomas

Harcourt. Thomas has been getting

some great results in both

the open and under-20 divisions

in the national series. Thomas

was fourth at the South Island

champs in Dunedin and is sitting

fifth on the national junior

ratings with two events to go.

This weekend will see the national

series come closer to home

with the Exit Surf Canterbury

men’s surf champs kicking off

on Saturday. The event will find

the best waves between Taylors

the ingenuous idea to play the

powerful Fijian at first-five

has been the talk about town.

Some have even claimed to have

witnessed straws being drawn.

However, Dodgson has put these

rumours to bed claiming to have

taken a more holistic approach.

“I said who wants to play

‘sweet, done’.”

Sumner’s new tackle breaker

turned playmaker could prove

pivotal in their upcoming home

stand at St Leonards Park.

finalists on Saturday before

playing Burnside on Anzac Day.

The biggest test of all then comes

We would like to thank all of the wonderful

children who entered our colouring

competition run by agent Eddie Spry. With

nearly three times the amount of entries

compared to last year choosing a winner

for each group was a difficult task. Entries

were displayed in the office window and

attracted a lot of attention not only from

passers-by but our own staff couldn’t help

but pick a favourite too!

Heathcote stalwart honoured

• By Gordon Findlater

LONG-TIME Heathcote opener

John Garry was recognised for

his two decade long commitment

to senior A cricket in Canterbury

by being awarded the Peter

Russell trophy.

The trophy was awarded

to Garry for his outstanding

contribution at

the Canterbury

Metro Cricket

Association’s

night last week.

In February

the 49-year-old

became the

John Garry

first player in

the senior A

competition’s

history to score 10,000 career

runs. He also holds the record

for most runs in a season in

senior A grade, scoring 1060

runs during the 2008-2009

season at an average of over 70.

Garry also looks set to be the

only player to ever score 10,000

runs at senior A level. The

competition will be replaced by

a new look premier competition

next season.

Garry won’t be a part

of the Heathcote premier

team going forward due to

coaching commitments with

his children’s cricket team on

Saturday mornings. However,

the coaching role will see him

MILESTONE: Heathcote opener John Garry won the Peter Russell trophy for outstanding

contribution to senior A club cricket after being the first to score 10,000 runs. ​

remain well and truly involved

with the club and he plans to

play for a twenty20 side in the

afternoon.

Before moving to Christchurch

in the early 1990’s he played

premier cricket in Dunedin

where he also represented Otago

B.

“I got asked to fill in for

Heathcote one afternoon and I

never really left,” said Garry.

Since then Garry has

completed 18 seasons for

Heathcote mixed amongst a

break from the sport and also

turning to what is known as

the ‘dark side’ by his pairs at

Heathcote, when he spent three

years with the Sumner club.

The opener had questioned

whether or not to continue

SPORTS

playing at senior A level for

Heathcote coming into this

season. But with the 10,000 run

milestone within reach he was

tempted back to the crease.

“I was pretty chuffed to get

there and to still be able to compete

at that level.”

Garry helped Heathcote to

claim the treble this season,

winning the senior A oneday,

two-day and combined

competition trophies. He scored

299 runs in 10 one-day matches

and 154 runs in five two-day

matches.

He says winning the treble

was the perfect way to go out at

the club’s top level of cricket and

believes a platform has been laid

for them to flourish.

“It’s a real grass roots club and

with what we’ve been through

with the earthquake having to

rebuild the place, seeing where

the club is now is sensational.

Our goal was to get the club up

to a premier cricket grade. The

criteria that we had to meet to

be eligible to play in that grade

was huge and we’ve managed to

achieve that.”

As for his favourite memories

in his 18-year career with the

senior A side it’s hard to narrow

them down.

“It’s just the ground. Everyone

looks forward to playing there

because it’s just one pitch on one

ground, you’re not sharing it

with anyone. It’s a fantastic place

for cricket with the hills around

you. The lower grade teams don’t

get to play there as often so that’s

the biggest thing I’ll miss.”
