Shellfish numbers threatened

• By Sarla Donovan

COCKLE NUMBERS in the

Avon-Heathcote Estuary are in

serious decline.

A six-month study shows the

population has fallen dramatically

since a 2012 survey, from

around 400 per sq m to between

50 and 80 per sq m in some

areas.

Biological sciences student

Stephanie Hampson has been researching

the extent and impact

of harvesting on the health and

sustainability of estuary shellfish

beds – an important feeding

grounds for birds.

The results suggest the current

limit of 150 cockles per person

per day is too high and needs to

be reduced or even a ban put in

place, Ms Hampson said.

Auckland’s limit is 50 per person

per day, which she believes

would be more appropriate if

harvesting is to continue.

FORMER BANKS Peninsula

Community Board chairwoman

Christine Wilson has died after a

short illness.

“Lyttelton has lost one of its

best and dearest,” said friend and

“Christine was a jewel. She loved

her community, selflessly dedicating

her life to public service.”

Ms Wilson was the sister of

former All Blacks Graeme and

Stephen Bachop and mother to

former All Blacks Nathan and

Aaron Mauger, who now respectively

coach at the Sunwolves

Ideas mooted for Godley House site

• By Sarla Donovan

Richard

Suggate

A PROJECT manager could

help decide the future of the

former Godley House site in

Diamond Harbour.

That’s the message from

Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman Richard

Suggate following a meeting

with city council staff last week.

The historic building was

built in 1880 and used as a

hotel, restaurant and conference

centre from 1911 until the

September

4, 2010,

earthquake.

It suffered

substantial

damage in the

February 22,

2011, earthquake

and was

subsequently

demolished.

Since then the grounds have

been used for outdoor concerts

and other events.

Mr Suggate said the community

had been proposing ideas

for the site since 2012 but not

had any response from the city

council.

The issue was subsequently

put aside while the Diamond

Harbour Village Plan was being

developed.

“I’ve said we need someone

to engage with us as to what we

can put there. It’s a key site for

the community and there’s a

definite loss of facility.”

He said the Dark Star Cafe adjacent

to the site, which opened

in December 2016, was on a

temporary lease in a temporary

building.

“We need some permanent

solutions and the best way is

to assign a (city council) staff

member and for that person to

look at the ideas the community

has for the site and then look

at how that might be achieved

either by the city council building

something and leasing it

out or a kind of public/private

partnership.”

A permanent cafe building

along with an indoor/outdoor

performance space and shifting

the library from its current location

hall were all ideas that had been

raised by residents, Mr Suggate

said.

He’s asked the city council to

the community and put together

a plan that can be considered

by the Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

plan last week.

TUNNEL WORKS

Traffic using the Lyttelton Tunnel

NEW RELEASES

It won’t happen overnight: Creating

wealth through New Zealand property

by Heather Morris

‘It won’t happen overnight…’ takes you through the process of getting started

in property investment in New Zealand. Mike Pero and David Weusten step you

through almost everything a successful property investor needs to know to succeed,

from the basics of budgeting through to tips on selecting property, exercising due

diligence and managing the buying process itself. They also cover managing debt

and cash flow as these are critical elements to successful property management.

Those who invest in property are often criticised in the media for being greedy,

self-serving and a blight on the country. Yet without the people looking to create

wealth for themselves through property investment, and providing the capital to

house those who can’t or chose not to own their own property, it would be left to

the government, local bodies or charitable organisations to provide rental housing

resulting in higher taxes for all New Zealanders. Mike Pero and David Weusten offer

the essential handbook to equip new property investors and provide reassurance

to those already in the market. Although it won’t happen overnight with the wisdom

and experience this book provides you can be assured it will happen!

Rugby Rebel

by Christopher Tobin

Rugby Rebel investigates a sensational accusation made against brilliant All

Black winger Duncan McGregor that he sold team secrets which cost the Original

All Blacks their unbeaten record on the famous 1905 tour of Britain, France and

the United States. What made it worse was that McGregor’s Accusers were some

of his fellow All Blacks. But has his name been unfairly besmirched? This book

tells McGregor’s ex¬traordinary and previously untold story. In doing so, it delves

deeply into an explosive and controversial period in New Zealand rugby history, the

early 1900s, when ‘shamateurism’ was rife and the sport was split apart by the

emergence of rugby league. Rugby Rebel shatters myths, offers new insights and

provides enough information for the reader to decide whether McGregor was hero,

or as his deractors claimed, villain.

The Leisure Seeker:

Read the Book That Inspired

the Movie

by Michael Zadoorian

Now a major motion picture starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland.

Ella and John have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now they’re

on the run from their doctors and middle-aged children, who just want them to go

gently into that undignified night of old age. In their trusty camper van, the pair

embark on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery along Route 66. Though time is

catching up with them, Ella is determined that together they’ll make it to their final

destination for one more carefree day together, even if it is their last.

Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me

by Lily Collins

International bestseller - In this groundbreaking debut essay collection,

featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins - star of Mortal

Instruments and Rules Don’t Apply - is opening a poignant, honest

conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, selfconfidence,

relationships, family, dating and so much more.

For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets,

proving that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all

understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about

making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror

and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She’s learned that all it takes

is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realise

they’re not alone. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will

inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your

voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.

HISTORY: The heritage-listed Mitre Hotel on Norwich Quay was damaged in the

September 2010 and February and June 2011 earthquakes. It has been fenced off

since 2011.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Quake-strengthening time

frame could be shortened

• By Sarla Donovan

THE HEAT is going on

owners of earthquakeprone

properties across

Christchurch – including

Canterbury’s oldest pub,

Lyttelton’s Mitre Hotel.

New provisions introduced

into the Building

Act (2004) last year require

local authorities in areas

of high seismic risk to

identify earthquake-prone

“priority buildings” in high

traffic areas or on strategic

transport routes.

Such buildings will have

to be strengthened twice

as quickly as non-priority

buildings, shortening the

time frame from 15 years

to 7.5 years.

That’s because they

could collapse during an

earthquake and impede

important routes.

Consultation is due to

take place over the next

few months to determine

which buildings fit the

criteria.

Norwich Quay is a key

route for traffic accessing

Lyttelton Port.

A city council spokeswoman

said no dates had

been set but consultation

would take place in the

second half of this year.

A sly grog shop called

the Mitre opened on the

Norwich Quay site in 1849

but the current concrete

building is the third incarnation

after the first was

destroyed by fire in 1875

and the second in 1926.

A letter and earthquakeprone

building notice was

sent to the owner of the

Mitre Hotel in January and

the spokeswoman confirmed

other potentially affected

building owners had

been sent a similar letter

about the consultation.

The pub has been closed

since the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

CERA installed safety

barriers around the building

in March 2012, which

cannot be removed until

the owner undertakes

structural strengthening,

which will require a building

consent.

No building consent has

been lodged with the city

council nor any application

for heritage funding.

Shellfish under threat

•From page 1

Ms Hampson measured

the number and size of

cockles in areas near the

Mt Pleasant causeway, the

Beachville Rd jetty and the

Mt Pleasant Yacht Club.

“I was really surprised,”

she said, “I wasn’t expecting

it to decline that much,

I thought we might find

a little bit less but not like

this . . . a lot of them are

really small because there’s

not enough good nutrients.

We had cockles eight or

nine years old that were

only 20-30mm which is

smaller than they should be

for their age.”

Cockles can live for 20

years but eight to nine years

is typical as there is high

juvenile mortality rate.

Beds alongside the causeway

and yacht club were

heavily depleted.

“The areas near the

causeway are hard-hit by

collecting so there’s not

enough time for them

to establish and the area

closest to the Mt Pleasant

Yacht Club was also low

which might be due to

disturbance and unhealthiness

from cars driving near

to the beach. We struggled

to find more than 40 across

that entire site – about 10m

right beside the water line.”

A survey of 100 estuary

users found some were collecting

in groups as large

as nine; collectively they

could take more than 1000

cockles in one day and still

be within the limit.

Most people didn’t know

what the limit was.

“Some thought it was

similar to Auckland, some

thought it was a bucketful,

some thought it was

between 150 and 400.”

Signs put up with catch

limits “kept disappearing.”

Ms Hampson attributes

the decline to a combination

of poor nutrients and

pressure from collecting.

“With the earthquakes,

the silt was blocking the

cockles’ gills and I think

that affected their health; if

they’re not as healthy they

won’t be producing as many

baby cockles. And then

because people are taking

so many, there’s not enough

replacement in the system;

they don’t have the chance

to recover and grow.”

“I think for people to

still be able to collect there

needs to be a lower limit,

especially in the hardest hit

areas. At this rate, in the

channel they’re going to

die. Eventually there will

be so few the only ones that

are big enough to reproduce

will be taken.”

The research was funded

by Canterbury University

and the Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust.

Revised complex application lodged

• By Sarla Donovan

CONSENT FOR a retail

development in Church Bay is

unlikely to be publicly notified.

Spence Developments lodged

a resource consent application

last month to build a supermarket

and car park, cafe, small cinema

and four shops at 139-143

Marine Drive.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said no

decision had been reached as

to how the application would

be processed but “public notification

would seem unlikely”

because the site is zoned for

commercial use. However, it was

still possible limited notification

would take place with affected

properties in the area, he said.

Church Bay Neighbourhood

Association secretary Pat

Pritchett said she didn’t see the

need for public notification. “I

think people feel they’ve had a

say,” she said.

An application was to be

made late last year but consultation

with city council staff and

the Church Bay and Diamond

Harbour communities forced a

rethink of the original plans.

Residents’ concerns centred

on the appearance of the buildings

and the entry points to the

car park.

REVISED PLAN: A concept drawing showing the proposed

new development. Cedar panels have been added to the

exterior in response to community feedback about the

building’s appearance. ​

“CBNA appreciate that Spence

Developments gave the community

the opportunity for input.

The changes to the appearance,

landscape and layout for these

facilities has gone a long way to

achieving community expectations,”

said Mrs Pritchett.

The revised plans show the

building now has cedar board

panels along the western facade

and metal louvres above the

supermarket entrance.

The south-eastern car park

has been pushed back from the

boundary by 5.5m, bollards

proposed for restricting access

outside opening hours and a

revised landscape plan features

a row of pohutukawa trees along

with beech, lancewood and flax.

And car parking spaces now

number 103 – less than the 111

originally proposed.

• Gross floor area for the

James Grant and Laura

supermarket.

Richard Suggate said given the

scale of the development and

the amount of feedback it had

generated, it “would be helpful”

if it was publicly notified.

The developers may put a

self-service petrol station in the

forecourt of the existing store at

141 Marine Drive, but that isn’t

part of the current consent.

Development

plans for Collet’s

Corner site

• By Sarla Donovan

PLANS FOR the site known as

Collet’s Corner were shared with

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board on Monday.

Landowner Camia Young is

proposing to build a 2300 sq m

building at the former Empire Tavern

site on the corner of Oxford and

London Sts.

Roman baths, a co-working

space and cafe, cinema, bar and

hotel accommodation are the likely

uses for the space, following public

consultation by Ohu Developments,

Ms Young’s property development

company.

A three-month long design competition

will be held for architects

and architectural students to put

forward their concepts, Ms Young

said.

It’s intended the building will be

funded through a mixture of private

investment and public equity

secured through crowd-funding

platforms like PledgeMe.

The cost is likely to be between

$5 million and $8 million with a

planned 2020 opening. Ms Young

bought the land in 2013 for $630,000.

is scheduled for Wednesday,

community and a Distinguished

Service Cross for bravery in

World War 2 has died.

Alexander ‘Sandy’ Brunt dedicated

most of his life to helping

others, both as a pilot during

WW2 and afterwards as a tireless

volunteer.

He died at Edith Cavell

Lifecare aged 99 years and nine

months, just 84 days short of his

100th birthday.

Mr Brunt served in the Fleet

Air Arm, flying Fairey Albacore

and Swordfish biplanes off British

aircraft carriers from 1941-1945,

rising to the rank of Lieutenant

Commander in the Royal New

Zealand Navy Volunteer Reserve

Force.

Among the squadrons he

served in were the 826, 834 and

the 706.

The Distinguished Service

Cross was awarded to him for

“bravery and devotion to duty

in air operations in the western

desert.” He flew in the Pacific

and in Egypt.

One of his tasks was undertaking

night missions to drop flares

for bombers. Upon returning

from the war, he joined the Sumner

Cricket Club and went on to

play until the age of 49.

He had hoped to play until he

was 50 but said that when you

get to the stage where you “drop

all your catches,

get no wickets and

don’t make any

runs, it’s time to

give it away.”

In 1954 he married

Rona and

shortly after built

a house on Kinsey

Tce, where they

lived until the

February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Mrs Brunt said

he was a handyman

who was

“capable of doing

anything.” They

raised two children – a son Tony

and daughter Jenny.

An active member of the

Sumner Lifeboat Institution

for several years, he went on to

establish the Sumner Lifeboat

Replacement Fund and was a

charter member of the Christchurch

South Lions Club in 1966.

Alexander ‘Sandy’

Brunt

For 13 years, he co-ordinated

the volunteers who manned

the police kiosk in Cathedral

Square, and his work on the

‘Speak Up’ campaign earned him

an MBE .

When he was 80, he began

teaching bible class to five and

six-year-olds at

Redcliffs Primary

School, and for the

next five years he

looked forward to

going down to talk

to the pupils once a

week during term

time.

He was a man

of courage and

conviction, said

Tony in a speech

at his father’s 90th

birthday.

“Someone who set

himself goals and

worked diligently to

reach them. But they have seldom

been selfish goals. It’s fair to say

that most of dad’s energies have

gone to making other people’s

lives better.”

•A memorial service will be

held at 2pm on Tuesday at

St Andrews Church, Main Rd,

“I will always appreciate

the passion and commitment

Christine showed in all of the

excellent work she did and all

that she achieved for Lyttelton,

not only at the community

board but in her many other

roles over a long period of time.

I have greatly enjoyed working

with Christine and I know she

will be much missed in our

community,” Cr Turner

said.

Labour MP for Port Hills

Ruth Dyson said Lyttelton had

lost a “quiet but strong leader”

who was extraordinarily well

connected with the community

and passionate about getting

gaps filled.

“I will miss her as a friend

and a colleague and Lyttelton

will mourn her passing,” Ms

Dyson said.

Ms Wilson resigned her

position for health reasons in

February.

She had taken on the role

of chair in 2016 after serving

one previous term on the

board.

Ms Wilson died peacefully

on Saturday and will be at 25

Days Rd, Lyttelton, for those

who would like to pay their

respects.

A celebration of her life will

be held at the Lyttelton Recreation

Grounds on Thursday,

May 31.

Everyone is welcome from

11am, to be seated for the service

commencing at noon.

That will be followed by a private

cremation for immediate

family members.

Mt Pleasant market

to celebrate seven

years with ‘long lunch’

• By Sarla Donovan

THE MT Pleasant Farmers’

Market is celebrating its seventh

birthday with a ‘long lunch’ over

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Mt Pleasant resident Tom

Davies established the

market shortly after

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and its

popularity has continued

to grow.

“While locals tell us

they enjoy shopping

at the market to buy

fresh, locally-grown

food, the opportunity

it provides each week

for residents to ‘bump’

into one another while

buying artisan bread

or a piece of handmade cheese is

just as highly-valued,” said event

organiser Derek McCullough.

The lunch was an opportunity

to acknowledge the market’s

importance.

“We want to establish this

event as one way of the community

demonstrating its ongoing

support for the market.”

Mr McCullough said in keeping

with the tradition of long

lunches celebrated by farmers’

markets overseas, it will highlight

the range of fresh produce

available while raising funds for

market improvements.

A three-course

menu will be created

from ingredients

which traders have

donated.

And a team of

volunteers will help

out in the kitchen,

wait the tables and

provide the music.

The lunch will be

served at the new

Mt Pleasant Centre.

Derek McCullough

•Get along to the market

on Queen’s Birthday Monday

at 12.30pm. Tickets cost

$50 each and include a

complimentary drink.

Tickets can be purchased

from the Mt Pleasant Centre

office, 9am-2pm, weekdays,

Store on Saturday, 9.30am-

ECan rethinks bus cuts

• By Julia Evans

PUBLIC OUTCRY has caused

a rethink over plans to cut bus

routes around the city.

But the 535 Eastgate to

Lyttelton and Rapaki still

remains on the chopping block.

Environment Canterbury staff

prepared an “alternative option”

to the proposal in its draft Long

Term Plan that would axe the

six lowest performing bus routes

following “overwhelming” public

opposition, a spokeswoman

said.

Those routes included the 535

and the 145 Westmorland to

Eastgate.

The solution is a modification

of the six routes proposed to be

disestablished – with frequency

changes, the combining of two

routes, extension and re-routing

of others.

But as part of the proposal,

there would not be a service

travelling down Linwood Ave,

through Ferrymead and Mt

Pleasant.

The Rapaki section of the

route will be serviced three

times in the morning and three

times in the evening by an

extended version of the 28 Lyttelton

bus.

During a deliberation meeting

CUTS: Environment Canterbury has found an alternative to

cutting bus routes across the city, but a service travelling down

Linwood Ave, through Ferrymead and Mt Pleasant is not in the

plan.

last week, councillor Cynthia

Roberts said she wanted staff to

re-look at dropping the 535.

“I really would like staff to

have a look again at the opportunity

for the 535 that went

through Ferrymead . . . there

is quite a substantial group of

people who are interested in this

route,” she said.

Councillors have asked for

staff to further consider the best

solution for the 535.

ECan announced in February

it was considering cutting

the routes to plug a $4 million

funding shortfall. The news

prompted outrage.

The plan would be funded by a

2.5 per cent increase in fares annually

for the next three years,

starting in July.

There were 781 submissions on

the draft LTP, with the majority

of those on public transport

options.

Mr Gibbon said if approved,

the changes would come into

effect in October. The decision

now lies in the hands of councillors

who will approve the final

LTP in June. Bus patronage has

not fully recovered following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

GOING AWAY THIS QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND?

For those of you heading off for a break this long weekend please take

the time to check real-time travel information before you head off and

be prepared for increased traffic volumes.

Drivers have two options for travel in the Upper

South Island between Picton and Christchurch.

• SH1 via Kaikōura is now open 24/7 but

construction is ongoing (north and south)

with delays and some single lanes.

• The alternate Picton to Christchurch route

via the Lewis Pass is open 24/7 (but check

before travel as winter conditions may cause

the Lewis Pass to be closed temporarily).

Both routes will be busy so whichever one you

choose the NZ Transport Agency advises you

allow plenty of time for your trip, especially

if you are catching a ferry or are on a tight

schedule.

The NZ Transport Agency encourages

everyone heading off for a break to ‘know before

you go’ and check the holiday hotspots map:

www.nzta.govt.nz/hotspots. The map collates

data from previous Queen’s Birthday Weekend

journeys and advises on the best time to leave to

avoid the rush.

With the change in season it is also time to

prepare for winter driving to stay safe:

• Take the time to check your vehicle is in

good condition – tyres/spare tyre, indicators,

windshield wipers, lights

• Be prepared by travelling with warm clothes,

food, water and a fully charged cell phone

• A flat battery is the most common cause

of winter breakdowns. If it’s more than

five years old it may struggle in the cold.

Get it checked and replaced if necessary

• Keep at least a quarter of a tank of fuel in

case of any unexpected delays

Drivers need to be patient, cautious and

courteous. Take your time and be prepared

for the unexpected.

And remember, over holiday periods many

drivers are on unfamiliar roads, so please

be patient as we are all in this situation at

some stage.

HOW TO STAY UP TO DATE:

• Plan your journey between Picton and

Christchurch and get real-time information

via www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or call

0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49).

We recommend checking at least two hours

before you travel and while on your trip

• Check the MetService weather forecast

before you head away

Akaroa wharf battle heats up

• By Sarla Donovan

A TUSSLE over unpermitted

structures on Akaroa wharf

seems to be coming to a head.

Black Cat Cruises installed

signs, posts, seats and a disability

access ramp on the city

council-owned

wharf without

getting the necessary

permission.

The Banks

Peninsula

Community

Paul Milligan

Andrew

Turner

Board requested

removal of the

structures in

November but

nothing has been

taken down yet.

The issue is

around exactly

which structures

Black Cat

Cruises will

need to get rid

of. It has been

negotiating with the city council

about the disability ramp, which

it said was installed as part of its

building consent.

Chief executive Paul Milligan

said in early April that Black Cat

Cruises wanted to make sure it

wasn’t breaking more rules by

removing the wheelchair ramp.

City council staff last month

outlined in a public excluded

session which structures it recommended

should go.

But the board rejected the

plan, saying it wanted to consult

the Akaroa Fisherman’s

Association, another wharf

stakeholder, about the proposed

changes.

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner told Bay Harbour News

the association wanted to see

further changes before the

proposal went back to the board

on June 11.

“It was good we got that

feedback because we want to

find a solution that’s workable

for Black Cat and that meets

the needs of the association or

addresses their concerns in a

meaningful way.”

Association chairman John

Wright said it had asked for

changes before the proposal

went before the board again.

“The whole lot should be

removed,” he said. “The bottom

line is none of those structures

on the wharf occupying public

space have got consent. We can’t

understand why the city council

hasn’t just asked them to remove

the whole lot.”

Cr Turner said he didn’t yet

know if the discussion on June

11 would exclude the public.

He would not say whether the

city council would pay for any

costs associated with removal.

Bid for $100k

to fix Cass Bay

playground

• By Sarla Donovan

DAMAGED footpaths, missing

steps and broken benches are

putting people off using the Cass

Bay playground, the committee

tasked with its management

believes.

It wants the city council to

update the playground facilities

and equipment at the same time

as the toilet block renewal, which

has been signalled for 2019/20 in

the draft Long Term Plan.

Cass Bay Reserve Management

Committee chairwoman Jenny

Healey spoke at a submission

hearing last week. She asked for

$100,000 of development work on

paths and seating to be brought

forward to this year and for extra

funding to upgrade the playground.

It wants the work to take

place at the same time as the toilet

block renewal. “This will lead to

a more cohesive, cost-effective

result and be less disruptive to the

community and people who use

it,” Ms Healey told Bay Harbour

News.

An increasing number of people

were also using the Corsair Bay-

Cass Bay track, she said, with an

estimated 60,000 people projected

to walk it this year.

Temporary drinking water chlorination

Why can I taste and smell it?

We’ve heard that some people are experiencing a higher

level of taste and smell than others.

Taste and smell varies across the city because of:

• How close you live to the pump station

• The condition of the water pipes

This is because chlorine reacts with a variety of materials in the pipes, causing different levels of

smell and taste. Over time we expect this to be less noticeable. Our contractors will be flushing

pipes in areas that report significant problems.

We are looking at how we can reduce the dose

We are working with health authorities to explore how we can reduce the amount

of chlorine in the water supply.

We are testing chlorine levels daily from different points in the system and

adjusting the dose where needed.

Is chlorine safe?

Health officials’ advice is that there are no known health impacts from drinking water effectively

treated with chlorine. It is safe for pregnant women to drink.

Health authorities advised us to temporarily treat the water and recommended we use chlorine.

Chlorine has been used safely around the world for 120 years. It keeps millions of people all round the

world – including most of New Zealand – safe from waterborne illness. More than 80 per cent of towns

and cities in New Zealand have chlorinated water.

For more information

and to keep up-to-date

ccc.govt.nz/water-chlorination

or call us on

941 8999 or 0800 800 169

You can reduce the taste

and smell by:

• Filling an open jug of drinking water

and keeping it in the fridge.

• Leave lids off water containers to

allow chlorine to evaporate.

• Using a water filter. Options include

jugs with filters for drinking water right

through to whole house systems. Costs

vary depending on what you choose.

Filters are available to hardware

supplies stores or water

filter companies.

Can chlorine affect existing health conditions?

Chlorine can be an irritant for an existing condition such as asthma

or eczema. If you feel your skin getting dry or itchy, use moisturiser after

having a shower or bath. If you notice increased skin irritation, asthma

symptoms or other symptoms – seek medical advice from your GP.

Caring for pets and fish

Treated water is safe for household pets such as cats and dogs to drink.

If you have fish in outside ponds you will need to either turn down in-coming water to an

absolute trickle (this dilutes the chlorine level to a safe amount for your fish), or fill up drums of

water and let them sit for at least 24 hours (the UV of the sun evaporates chlorine).

For fish tanks or bowls inside, fill up a container and let it sit for at least 24 hours, then only replace

1/3 of this water at a time with what is in the tank already. If you’re still worried, you can buy

de-chlorinating kits (sodium thiosulfate) at pet supplies stores.

Does chlorine cause cancer?

The International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) does

not believe chlorinated water is either a probable, or even

possible, cause of cancer.

Christchurch

water supply

pump stations

How long will we be chlorinating

the water?

Council has authorised the chlorination of

the water supply for up to 12 months.

Should longer be required, a further

resolution of Council would be

needed. The amount of work

that needs to happen to

remove chlorine is still

Black Ferns drop into Sumner Rugby Club

SPORTS

SPECIAL VISITORS: A trio of Black Ferns visited Sumner with

the World Cup trophy as part of club day at St Leonards Park.

• By Gordon Findlater

BLACKS FERNS Kendra

Cocksedge, Chelsea Alley and

Aleisha Nelson turned out at

Sumner on Saturday to help

celebrate club day.

The trio watched the two

metro under-16 girls games

being played at St Leonards Park

and even refereed some junior

games.

“They were very accommodating.

They had the World Cup

there for the kids to get photos

with . . . there was nothing but

glowing reports,” said Sumner

club captain John Taylor.

In the headline game of the

day, Sumner left it to the final

5min of their match against

High School Old Boys to win

24-23. The win moved Sumner

into second spot in the Hawkins

Metro Premier Cup with just two

rounds remaining.

With 5min left on the clock.

Sumner were trailing 17-23.

However, the home side found

themselves in striking distance

of the HSOB line and captain

Dylan Nel barged his way over to

leave Tom Ziolo with a chance to

give Sumner the lead.

After missing from a position

5m closer to the posts earlier in

the game, Ziolo held his nerve to

give Sumner the lead and they

never relinquished it.

Sumner’s division two side

didn’t have as much luck

going down 17-50 to HSOB.

Meanwhile, the Sumner Sharks

overcame the Christchurch

Canardlys in their annual Friday

night match under lights at

Christchurch Park. They won

13-5 courtesy of tries from

Waterboy and Moose.

Bays seeking payback against Chatham Cup rivals

• By Gordon Findlater

FOR FERRYMEAD Bays, it

doesn’t get much bigger than

facing rivals Cashmere Technical

in the Chatham Cup.

After the disappointment of

unsuccessfully defending their

Mainland Premier League title,

Bays now have to put that behind

them on Queen’s Birthday when

they travel to Garrick Park.

“The season hasn’t gone as

we’d hoped . . . we want to be the

best club in Christchurch so it

would be nice to cut their party a

little bit short,” said Bays captain

Richard Astley.

If they’re to do that they will

need a quick turnaround in

form. Bays were put to the sword

1-5 the last time the two teams

met in the MPL at Garrick Park

earlier this month.

“They really showed up. That’s

as good as I’ve seen them play in

a few years,” said Astley.

“We’ve got a bit of payback

to get. If you can’t get up for a

game after a 1-5 loss then there’s

something wrong.”

Cashmere are two-time

winners of the Chatham Cup –

the country’s most prestigious

knockout football competition.

They won back-to-back titles in

2013 and 2014. Running into the

former champions early on isn’t

new for Bays.

Astley is hoping Monday’s

second round match, which

starts at 2pm, will fan out better

than one of his first encounters

against Cashmere in the cup.

“We met them in the second

round and ended up losing in a

penalty shootout. They ended up

going on to win that year,” said

Astley.

Bays will first play FC Twenty

11 in their penultimate MPL

match on Saturday. Astley says

Monday’s match against their

rivals is also pivotal in building

momentum going into the newly

re-established South Island

league where they have title

hopes.

Eco-system education

New Banks

Peninsula

Water Zone

Committee

member

Garrick

Thorn writes

about a

programme

which helps young people

preserve waterways – right

in their own backyards

AN EXCITING new educational

programme has begun on the

peninsula, providing schools

and kids with the tools and the

knowledge to understand our

unique aquatic eco-system.

At the Banks Peninsula Water

Zone Committee meeting last

month, Kirsty Brennan from

EOS Ecology introduced their

education programme, ‘Nature

Agents.’

This programme has been

developed to give school students

authentic scientific experiences

in their local environment.

The group provides schools

with equipment, training, information

and some support time

to enable students to set up their

own monitoring of waterways,

measuring critical parameters

to understand its ecology and

health.

So far the programme has been

to three schools – Okains Bay,

Duvauchelle and Akaroa – and

student and staff feedback has

been positive.

These types of initiatives

can have wide and diverse

positive impacts on our water

quality.

By working with EOS Ecology

we can help identify waterways

that could most benefit from

such a monitoring regime.

Tracking changes in our

waterways can help us identify

problems early or understand

how projects and initiatives are

having an impact.

Education is such a great

way of boosting our long term

water prospects and is something

the zone committee is very

interested in promoting so it’s

great we have this happening in

our area.

We have such enthusiastic

water advocates on the peninsula

and inspiring our younger

generations will have even more

positive impacts.

As a new member of the committee

I’m inspired to hear stories

about how our communities

are proactively getting involved

in water projects and I’m excited

to be part of it.

Make a difference by

scrapping plastic bags

Local

initiatives to

reduce the

amount of

plastic in the

environment

are just the

beginning,

believes National List MP

for Port Hills Nuk Korako

IT IS a well-known fact that

plastic is damaging our planet

and our environment.

Kiwis currently

use around 1.6

billion singleuse

plastic bags

every year and

that is a staggering

amount.

The good news

is that some great

initiatives for

recycling have been

coming to the fore.

Congratulations to Lyttelton

SuperValue which is the

first in the South Island to ban

single use plastic carrier bags

and the Countdown supermarket

chain have chosen 10

of their stores nationwide to go

single use bag free by the end of

June, with the Ferrymead store

being one of these. (It ended

single-use plastic bags on May

21.)

The Warehouse is on to it as

they will enforce that same rule

by the end of 2018.

If we can all remember to take

our own bags, bucket, box or

whatever works for you, we will

make a difference .

The Packaging Forum has

teamed up with major brands

and sponsors around New

Zealand with an initiative that

is worth supporting.

It is an exciting enterprise

which we will all benefit

from, as will our environment.

It is amazing

what this project

will take – all

soft plastic bags

including bread

bags, frozen

food bags, toilet

paper packaging,

confectionery and

biscuit wrap, chip bags, pasta

and rice bags, courier envelopes,

shopping bags – basically

anything made of plastic which

can be scrunched into a ball

can be placed into the drop off

bins at over 30 Christchurch

supermarkets and Warehouse

stores.

MUCKING

IN: Ruth

Dyson was

among

the 700

volunteers

helping

clean

the city’s

waterways. ​

Bagging up rubbish in the

‘mother of all clean-ups’

Ferrymead

Anna: One Love, Two Stories

by Amanda Prowse

There was a big turnout for

the ‘mother of all cleanups’

but as Port Hills Labour

MP Ruth Dyson writes, there

are other things we can do

to reduce pollution

The day before Mother’s Day

each year is an important one,

as our area gives mother nature

clean riverbanks and clean estuary

surrounds. The “mother of all

clean-ups” has been going for a

few years now and this year had

one of the best turnouts and, in

some but sadly not all areas, had

significantly less rubbish than

previously.

Over 600 volunteers worked

around the estuary and Heathcote

River and collected nearly

400 bags of rubbish. Much of the

rubbish was stuff that would have

been pretty easy to put in a bin

– takeaways bags and containers

and there were a lot of empty bottles.

But there were also tyres and

mattresses and other big items.

It’s hard to work out the thinking

of someone who dumps a mattress

on the side of the estuary.

Well done to the volunteers

who turned out to what was a

glorious day weather-wise, to the

groups who organised both the

event and the volunteers and to

Zac Cassels who, as always, was

a magnificent host of the post

clean-up celebration.

ENTER TO

WIN

Two new novels from Amanda Prowse, that tell the story of

one couple from both sides... This is Anna’s story.

From the heartbreaking, uplifting and bestselling Amanda

Prowse , this is an unforgettable romance about what happens

when two very different people fall in love. There are two sides to

every love story. This is Anna’s. Anna Cole grew up poor, but her mother’s love made

her feel rich every day. Then her mother died, and Anna was sent to a care home. As

a teenager, Anna vowed that one day, she would have children of her own, and create

the happy, noisy family life she always craved. Then, one day, Anna meets Theo

Montgomery in a lift. Theo has kind eyes, but a sad past. His family were rich, but

his childhood was full of neglect. Theo can’t imagine bringing a child into this cruel

world, but he does want a soulmate. Someone to love him unconditionally; someone

with whom he can share his family’s wealth. Theo and Anna are two damaged souls,

from two different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of

their pasts? Or will Anna and Theo break each others’ hearts?

THE HISTORIC Allandale

Community Hall near

Teddington is back in the

community’s hands.

The 120-year-old hall was

badly damaged in the Canterbury

earthquakes and closed for

safety reasons.

However, a major repair effort

over the past year has seen the

earthquake damage fixed and

some upgrades made to the hall.

It now has a new kitchen,

accessible toilets, new wiring,

and doors that lead to a large

deck on the north side of the

building.

The original floors in the hall

have also been revarnished and

the hall painted inside and out.

Never Fade (The Darkest Minds, Book 2)

by Alexandra Bracken

Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call

upon them on a daily basis. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby ‘Leader’,

but she knows what she really is - a monster. When Ruby is entrusted with an

explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet - leaving the

Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of

America’s children - and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated

outcasts - has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one

place - in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future and

who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam, she is torn

between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do

anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing

herself.

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

motion picture.

Clown Doctors New Zealand provide medical clowning programmes to health

care facilities and share with children and elderly the many healing benefits of

laughter. Clown Doctors use humour for a therapeutic purpose, according to

individual needs - making hospitals a little less scary for children and alleviating

boredom and creating spontaneity in the lives of the elderly.
