PAGEANTRY: The Caledonian Pipe Band leads Sumner’s Anzac Day parade along Wakefield Ave.

Hundreds pay tribute in parade

PEOPLE OF all ages turned out

in their hundreds to take part

in Anzac Day commemorations

across Banks Peninsula this year.

Parades and ceremonies were

held in Little River, Akaroa,

Sumner and Lyttelton.

A large crowd assembled in

Lyttelton to watch the parade

march from the corner of Oxford

and London Sts along to

Albion Square for the ceremonial

wreath-laying and speeches

of remembrance.

A wreath-laying ceremony at

the recently re-dedicated gates

of the former Sumner/Redcliffs

BANKS PENINSULA has been

compared to a high-maintenance

wife from Merivale.

“They look really good, but

very expensive.”

The remark came on

Monday during hearings on

the city council’s Long Term

Plan.

The Banks Peninsula

Community

Board made

a number of

requests for

extra funding

or for funding

to be brought

forward.

It prompted

Harewood Aaron Keown

Ward city

councillor Aaron Keown to say:

“I loved your photos at the start.

It’s certainly competing for the

eastern suburbs for the best

photos of the city. The analogy

around the garden v the living

room – I think it’s better as a

family analogy and I look at

Banks Peninsula as more like a

Merivale wife – they look really

good but very expensive.”

IF AARON Keown strays into the Bay

Harbour News area, give him a clip (verbal

of course) around the ear.

On page 1 today, we report he had a

crack at Banks Peninsula.

Keown, a Harewood Ward city councillor,

compares Banks Peninsula to a high-maintenance Merivale

wife. His comments came during the city council Long Term

Plan hearings after the Banks Peninsula Community Board’s

funding request for projects.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel struck back for Banks Peninsula, while

community board chairwoman Pam Richardson and the public

gallery laughed at the remark, which was of course typically

Keown.

We’ve kindly illustrated the article with a head shot of Keown

IT’S OFFICIAL – the

community’s favoured site for a

skate park is 26 Nayland St.

Consultation results were

released last week, and from 534

submissions a whopping 314 (58

per cent) supported the former

Marine Tavern site.

Sumner beach was the second

most popular with 109 supporters,

and the former Redcliffs

School site third with 78. Scott

Park was a distant fourth with

just 28 in favour.

Five submitters did not select a

ranking preference.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

was to make a decision in April,

but it is now likely to be August

before the matter is put to the

board.

That’s because the city council

is in discussions with the Crown

around ownership of the adjacent

sites at 20/24 Nayland St,

said head of parks Brent Smith.

The board has also

requested a soil test at 26 Nayland

St to “further inform their

decision-making for a site,” he

said.

Sumner Green and Skate

spokeswoman Liza Sparrow said

the group was “delighted” 26

Nayland St had proven the most

popular site for the permanent

skate area, as it would enable a

village green to be developed

adjacent to it.

“We are now one step closer to

achieving the goal of having

a recreation space within the

heart of the village,” said Ms

Sparrow.

“If 26 Nayland St is approved

for use by our community

board, Sumner Green and Skate

will continue to work with the

city council to ensure that this

project is completed in a way

which best meets the needs of

our community.”

In the meantime, the group

is fundraising for landscaping

and upkeep around the temporary

ramp on the Nayland St/

Wakefield Ave corner, which Ms

Sparrow said may be in place

until 2021.

SUSPECTED BURGLAR

CAUGHT

Police are asking anyone

who has been burgled in the

Lyttelton or Opawa area in

recent weeks, or disturbed

an unknown man on their

property and not reported it,

to phone Lyttelton Police on

378 0200 or Crimestoppers

anonymously on 0800 555

111. A 30-year-old Lyttelton

resident was last week arrested

and charged with seven counts

of burglary and one of theft

from a vehicle. He is scheduled

to appear in court on May 15.

INTERSECTION CHANGE

REJECTED

A proposal to stop traffic on

Brittain Tce from turning left

or right onto Simeon Quay

has been rejected by the Banks

Peninsula Community Board,

citing the effect on other

intersections in the area and

the impact on local traffic.

The proposal was intended

to improve traffic flow to

and from Governors Bay,

but sparked a backlash from

residents, with 41 submissions

on the proposal and only 14

per cent of those in favour. The

board said it would reconsider

changes if necessary, after the

Naval Point recreation area

was developed.

Dyson sorry for

using Labour crest

• By Sarla Donovan

PORT HILLS MP Ruth Dyson

has apologised for using the

official Labour Party crest to

support a candidate in the

area’s by-election.

Independent Citizens complained

to the Speaker of the

House, Trevor Mallard,

about a letter

Ms Dyson wrote to

Lyttelton residents,

supporting People’s

Choice candidate

Tyrone Fields’ bid

for a seat on the

Banks Peninsula

Community Board.

People’s Choice

is aligned to the

Labour Party.

Independent

Citizen’s chairwoman Liz

Lovell claimed Ms Dyson had

used taxpayer resources to ask

for votes.

“This sits well outside the

purpose and rules of which

their taxpayer funding is appropriated,’’

she said.

Ms Dyson rejected any suggestion

parliamentary resources

went into the preparation or

the distribution of the letter.

But she said the use of the

Labour crest on the letter was

an error.

“It was a genuine error.

I have contacted both the

speaker and the head of parliamentary

services to apologise

and rectify the situation,” she

said on Monday.

“The incorrect letterhead was

sent by digital file to

the campaign team.

The campaign team

produced and distributed

the material but

should have removed

the crest before doing

this.”

Former board chairwoman

Christine Wilson

resigned earlier

this year, prompting a

by-election in the Lyttelton

Ward.

Voting papers were sent out

last week and people have until

May 16 to cast their votes.

Roading money in demand

•From page 1

Banks Peninsula board

chairwoman Pam Richardson

and the public gallery

laughed at the remark.

But Mayor Lianne

Dalziel wasn’t impressed,

ruling it out of order.

“I know what you’re trying

to say, it just really was

a very bad way to try and

say it,” she said.

Among the extra funding

sought by the board is

a doubling of the budget

for metal road maintenance.

In its submission the

board requested an increase

from $775,696 to at

least $1.4 million.

Just over half the peninsula’s

651km roading

network is unsealed.

It said the money is

needed to reduce a backlog

of deferred maintenance

stretching back years.

“There is

definitely

not enough

for the

increases

in demand

over these

Rex Gebbie

roads.

While the

traffic volumes are relatively

small, the rapid change

in usage, particularly by

heavy vehicles for forestry

or dairy, has a huge and

sudden negative impact

on both the condition and

the life of the road,” the

submission said.

Scouring, potholes and

corrugations were the

result.

Banks Peninsula Transport

manager Rex Gebbie

and fifth-generation Little

Akaloa farmer Andrew

TRUCKS: Increasing demand from forestry and

dairy trucks is putting Banks Peninsula roads under

strain.

Craw have recently criticised

the city council over

what they say is insufficient

road maintenance.

The board also wants to

see an increase in funding

for culvert renewal from

$145,139 to $250,000.

Also in the board’s submission

were requests to

add two new projects into

the LTP.

The first is the $2.6 million

Okains Bay Potable

Water Scheme, to establish

a safe water source for the

community and campground.

The second is for $1.2

million of funding to

implement village plans

in Diamond Harbour and

Little River.

Wainui’s deferred wastewater

scheme also comes

in for scrutiny.

“As many properties in

Wainui have septic tank

systems which are failing,

if this is left unaddressed

untreated sewage will

continue contaminating

the harbour and other

waterways,” the board said

in its submission.

The board has asked that

the $8.2 million scheme be

reinstated in the LTP.

“It’s vital that we get the

(waste)water out of the

harbour and onto land.

What’s the use of taking

the Akaroa wastewater out

if we’re going to have it going

in on the Wainui side?”

board chairwoman Pam

Richardson asked the city

council on Monday.

It also proposed, as an

alternative to reinstatement,

that funding be allocated

for a feasibility study

of alternative wastewater

systems for small, rural

communities like Wainui

and Little River.

Funding for the Akaroa

and Diamond Harbour

wharf renewals should also

be brought forward, the

board said.

It argues that many of

the projects within Banks

Peninsula are of regional

significance and should be

considered in that context

when LTP funding was

considered.

Theatre group

moves to new

Sumner home

THE SUMNER Theatre Group

is moving into its new home

at Matuku Takotako: Sumner

Centre.

The group will hold a sign-up

event on Sunday night for its annual

cabaret.

Said new president Colin Evans:

“Anybody who is interested in

theatre – from wardrobe to cast

and crew – everybody is accepted.”

The variety show will run over

two weekends in August and two

weekends in September. “I won’t

give the theme away, but it will be

similar to last year. If you want to

know, you’ll have to come down

and sign up,” said Mr Evans.

The Sumner Theatre Group

has been running a cabaret for

about 40 years, but the group itself

has been going for more than 80

years. “There’s lots of tradition

there which we like to keep going.”

•The group is also fundraising

to fit out the new theatre in the

Sumner Centre with curtains

and other features. Visit its

A TINY piece of the city’s

railway history has come back

to life.

Railway Tce in Heathcote

Valley has been newly-repaired

following damage in the

September 4, 2010, and February

22, 2011, earthquakes.

The little street was formed

by New Zealand Rail in 1961

to build six workers’ houses

between Port Hills Rd and the

motorway.

NZR later sold them into

private ownership and each

resident owns a sixth of the

road.

It means there’s no city

council responsibility for

maintenance such as road

sweepers, weed spraying or

drain clearance.

And the costs of fixing the

quake damage fell on the homeowners’

private insurance.

Plumber Peter Bigelow has

lived on Railway Tce for years.

He said it had taken quite a

bit of co-ordination to fix the

road as it came under private

insurance rather than EQC.

“Half of us were with AA

(Vero) and they took the lead,

managed it and went to the

other insurers.”

Fibre was laid first, then

potholes repaired and new kerbs

and footpaths are now going in.

The work has taken about a

month.

Mr Bigelow said Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson has been helpful

in advocating on behalf of the

Railway Tce homeowners.

Ngai Tuari shifted into a

three-bedroom property with

her engine driver husband about

35 years ago and raised her

four children there, all of them

On the right track

A new Diploma in Organic Agri-Food

Production is being offered through a

partnership with Christchurch’s Lincoln

University and the Biological Husbandry

Unit (BHU).

The one-year full time programme,

largely focused on the theory and practice of

organics, will commence in July. The course

will cover small business management,

plant and animal health, traditional and

cultural food growing techniques and

contemporary Māori enterprises with

a focus on small scale and urban food

production. The BHU Organics Trust,

established in 2001, brought together likeminded

specialists from Lincoln University

and the NZ Organic Movement.

BHU manager Bill Martin says people

are taking an active interest in the food

supply chain and as a result there is

increased demand for smaller scale

organic production. to supply

farmers’ markets, cafés and

restaurants.

“There are numerous social

enterprises popping up across

the country that are involved

in food production. I believe

this will add huge value to

society,” says Martin.

Cultivate Christchurch is

an example, creating urban

farms, clever composting and

encouraging growth of urban

produce. Chief executive

officer of Organics Aotearoa,

Brendan Hoare welcomes the

direction Lincoln University

is taking, maintaining organic production

is the fastest growing food industry globally.

BHU is dedicated to the science of

permanent and wholesystem agriculture

and horticulture. Its campus facilities

include an Organic Training College

focusing on crops, livestock and soil

management and a Future Farming Centre,

with a 10-hectare horticultural farm located

at Lincoln University. Students are actively

involved in the process of growing organic

fruit and vegetable crops, and encouraged

to facilitate business relationships at the

local markets. BHU and Lincoln’s Bio-

Protection Research Centre have also

teamed up with Kings Seeds to produce a

‘How does your garden grow’ kit, answering

common questions about soil regulation

and including techniques for attracting

bees and ladybirds to garden crops. Kits are

available to purchase online through BHU.

Rotary takes care of trail

Ferrymead Rotary is

helping to look after

the popular 360 Trail,

writes Barbara Crooks

CHILDREN AND adults

alike enjoy walking around

the city on the 360 Trail

– it takes you along the

beach, over the Port Hills,

through some of the city

and through the wetlands

of Travis and Charlesworth

Reserves.

The trail has been open

for nearly two years.

Each rotary club within

the city has been allocated

a section to ensure the

signage is still valid, there

is nothing obstructing the

pathways and collecting

rubbish.

Ferrymead Rotary

looks after an area from

the Ferrymead Bridge

to Cowles Stadium – encompassing

around the

Avon-Heathcote Estuary,

through Charlesworth

The trust’s co-ordinator

Tanya Jenkins hosts school

groups, telling them about

the native plants and birds.

Plants native to this area

have been planted, watered,

mulched, staked and

weeded. These plants will

attract birds and the hope

is that they will nest here.

The children follow a

self-guided quiz of 20

questions about the wetland.

However, it not only children

who enjoy walking

and learning in this area.

Many other groups come

to the wetland, helping

with planting and weeding.

They range from university

and international students

participating as part of

their academic qualifications,

to businesses such as

Coca Cola and Canterbury

University going to do a

day of community work.

It is unusual to walk

through Charlesworth

other people enjoying the

peaceful atmosphere, not

far from the busy road but

sheltered from it.

Moncks Bay barrier may

still be years away

• By Sarla Donovan

A $92,000 safety barrier to

protect pedestrians using the

coastal “goat track” in Moncks

Bay could be years away.

The track (right) runs along

Main Rd from Redcliffs to

Sumner. It has seen two serious

crashes since 2016.

A new metal barrier was installed

at the Shag Rock bend in

December following the death of

Maureen Imrie after the vehicle

she was a passenger in went

through the wooden barrier into

the sea. The walkway south of

the bend, where repeat drink

driver Sarah Arrow crashed into

a couple, badly injuring one,

is only protected in parts by a

wooden fence.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said it was giving “consideration”

to a barrier as part of the coastal

pathway project.

But the $10 million Moncks

Bay-Shag Rock section of the

project is not funded in the draft

Long Term Plan – and it may be

years before it is built.

Mr Thomas said design solutions

for that section were being

developed, but given the narrowness

of the area “any solution is

very complex and all options and

the associated costs need to be

explored.”

Safety was still a priority for

the city council, he said.

“Ensuring that road safety

funds are targeted on the most

effective schemes at the highest

risk locations is the council’s

priority.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said it was an

“extremely poor” response.

“How can the city council

credibly claim that ‘safety is a

priority’ when they are unable

to confirm or demonstrate that

even after the spate of recent

accidents and a fatality that they

will install a safety barrier. What

does it take to get some action –

more accidents or loss of life?”

He wants the city council to

fast-track planning and funding

for the Moncks Bay part of the

coastal pathway, including a

safety barrier.

City council transport operations

manager Aaron Haymes

said in August it would cost

$92,000 for a 160m metal barrier

between the new one at Shag

Rock bend and the existing concrete

barrier further south.

Dodgson rues missed opportunities

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

“AN OPPORTUNITY lost”

is how Sumner coach Martin

Dodgson has summed up two

narrow losses in the space of

three days.

Sumner started the Hawkins

Metro Premier Cup with a

hiss and a roar, winning their

opening three matches. However,

a 10-13 loss on Anzac Day to

Burnside, then a 15-20 loss to

Lincoln University on Saturday

saw them drop to fifth in the

competition standings.

While Dodgson was impressed

overall with two valiant efforts at

Leonards Park, the nature of the

losses has been hard to swallow.

“In both games, we put

ourselves in a really good

position to win . . . we’ve let eight

points slip through our fingers,”

said Dodgson.

On Saturday, Sumner seized

the early advantage against

the competition favourites and

found themselves leading 10-3

after a penalty try following a

collapsed scrum on the Lincoln

line.

When first-five Josh Toy

skipped his way past two

defenders following a number

of phases, Sumner found

themselves with a 15-10

lead. However, in the final

10min of the game the home

side conceded a penalty and

converted try to see what would

have been an impressive victory

slip from their grasp.

After reflecting on the busy

week of fixtures with a ‘court

Dodgson says the wave are

winning ways.

Walking the height of

Everest on peninsula

• By Sarla Donovan

HEIDI ANDERSON is planning

to walk the height of Mt Everest

this month – right here in

Christchurch.

The Mt Pleasant fitness

instructor is becoming an ‘everyday

hero’ for the Himalayan

Trust, pledging to walk 8848m

over the 31 days of May.

It’s all to raise money for

education, health care and safe

drinking water for communities

in the Everest region of Nepal.

This month will mark 65 years

since Sir Edmund Hillary and

Tenzing Norgay reached the

world’s highest peak.

The feat marked the beginning

of a special relationship between

Nepal and New Zealand, which

was brought home to Ms Anderson

when she trekked with a

group led by Sir Edmund’s son

Peter Hillary to Everest Base

Camp.

“I went in 2013 and saw firsthand

the work of the Himalayan

Trust (started by Sir Edmund).

We just got totally absorbed; Peter’s

a wonderful advocate for the

people of Nepal. He was showing

us the schools that had been

built, the medical centres. It just

struck a chord and when they

had the earthquake, everything

that we saw had been shattered.

When I saw this challenge come

up, I thought it would be good

to be able to reconnect and give

them (something) because they

have less.”

Ms Anderson teaches fitness

and yoga classes at Mt Pleasant

Hall and runs a walking group

for friends once a week.

Her walks will cover the Port

Hills, including one up Mt

Herbert, the highest point on the

peninsula.

“I’m using my backyard as the

climb, going from the sea up to

the hills.”

She said she acknowledges the

poverty here in New Zealand

and “if I could do half and half

I would, but this is lined up to

help those children and families

abroad.”

the older children at the James

to do a Rogaine (orienteering

REAL ESTATE

A win-win situation!

2/40 and 38A Maffeys Road, Mt Pleasant

Auction: Thursday 17 May 2018 (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room

2 carports | Listing #FM5411

First time ever on the market! Capturing

elevated ocean views that cannot be built

out from the hills of Mt Pleasant, this

substantial property offers an abundance

of space both indoors and out and presents

the perfect family retreat in an incredibly

relaxing setting.

Comprising two cross-lease titles that

lie side-by-side. The first title is a section

in front of the house: a large parcel of

sloping land that provides families with

all the outside room they could ever need

while the second title hosts a four-bedroom

family home which has been thoughtfully

designed to maximize the exceptional

outlook. Live in the house and keep control

of what can be built on the section in future

or sell off the section.

Set upon a rear section with level access

this three-storey property features an

expansive open plan living area which

absorbs the idyllic view and forms the hub

of the home.

A rumpus room on the lower level is

accompanied by an additional kitchen and

offers flexibility for families, while a trio

of balconies, a sheltered patio and a deck

ensures you can always soak up the serenity

and find a quiet place to unwind.

Enjoying a favoured north-facing

orientation, the property is flooded with

natural warmth and the vast selection

of windows allow you to appreciate the

surroundings from almost every room

in the home. Modern tones and neutral

flooring are also prevalent, and there is

still room for buyers to add their personal

touch if desired.

Zoning for Mt Pleasant and Redcliffs

Schools delivers education options to

growing families, and proximity to the

amenities in Ferrymead, Redcliffs and

beyond to Sumner assures convenience

by the coastline. Enjoy McCormacks

Bay Reserve at the bottom of the hill for

your daily exercise or walking the dog

with access to the coastal pathway. While

Saturday morning hosts the local farmers

market outside the community centre.

Beautifully presented, this unique

hillside property offers an enviable lifestyle

in a truly picturesque location. Our owners

are downsizing as their children have now

grown up.

Bono: The rescue cat who

helped me find my way home

by Helen Brown

Having survived a brush with cancer, Helen Brown, happily

married and with three grown children, took stock of her

comfortable suburban life and found it wanting. So when she

was invited to visit New York, the city that never sleeps, she seized

the day and accepted. Perhaps, she mused, she might never return.

There was catch, however: would she foster a homeless cat during her stay? Visualising

a dozy, sweet-natured snuggler called Mavis, Helen agreed. But the cat she met in the

Manhattan shelter was anything but dozy. Instead, Bono, as he’d been named, was

wide-eyed and unpredictable, a bundle of nervous energy with a feisty attitude and punk

haircut to boot.

After a shaky start, Helen and Bono began to get to know each other. And, as winter

turned to spring, cat and woman explored new beginnings and past heartache, only to

discover that, in the end, home is where the heart is, wherever that may be.

In the tradition of Helen Brown’s international bestseller Cleo and based on her

enormously popular Huffington Post blog, Bono is a funny, tender and insightful story

about life, love and recovery - and a rock-star rescue cat with a big heart.

The Darkest Minds - Book 1:

Movie Tie-in Edition

by Alexandra Bracken

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed.

Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the

police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a government ‘rehabilitation camp’.

Ruby might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America’s children,

but she and the others had emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they

could not control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby

barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now on the run, she is desperate to find East

River, the only safe haven left for kids like her, and she joins a group of other runaways

who have escaped their own camps. Liam, their brave leader, is falling for Ruby, but she

can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. When they arrive at East

River, nothing is as it seems, least of all Liam. But there are also other forces at work,

people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby

will be faced with a terrible choice - and one that may mean giving up her only chance

at having a life worth living.

The first book in the NYT bestselling series, that is soon to become a major

motion picture.
