Based at the Lyttelton skate park, Los Angeles-based Christchurch mural artist Guy Ellis, aka Dcypher (right), led the workshop with 11 intermediate and high school-aged students who live in the township. They were encouraged to paint the vertical walls of the skate park features, as long as they didn’t paint on the new murals. Ellis created the murals over eight days last month, helped by other street artists. Saturday’s workshop was part of a long-term city council strategy to reduce the maintenance costs of the new murals in the skate park.

The condition of unsealed roads on the peninsula has prompted the Banks Peninsula Community Board to request the maintenance budget be doubled in the city council’s draft Long Term Plan from $775,696 to at least $1.4 million. In its submission on the draft LTP, North Canterbury Federated Farmers said some rural roads on Banks Peninsula are becoming dangerous, “if not unusable.” Federated Farmers national general policy manager Nick Clark told Bay Harbour News the roads were a lifeline for many farmers but they had been allowed to deteriorate. “We’ve been told by a few people the amount of money the city council spend would need to be doubled to make a difference and catch up on the years of underinvestment.” •Turn to page 5 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd Estate Realisation - Grand Lifestyle Property For Sale Auction: 2.30pm Saturday 19 May 2018 (unless sold prior) Majestic lifestyle residence, remodelled and enhanced, in five acres of rambling gardens, horse paddocks, outbuildings and orchards. • Vast living areas, two designer kitchens and six luxuriously appointed bedrooms • Includes self-contained apartment upstairs • Potential to subdivide (subject to Council regulations) • Owners’ circumstances have dramatically changed and demand an immediate sale www.rwferrymead ID#OPA23985 Mark Gardner 021 633 669 Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd MREINZ Licensed (REAA 2008) Open Home Viewing: 2pm-2.30pm Thursday, Saturday and Sunday
