On his days off, Mr Macala will often walk along the beach at sunrise. The New Brighton Pier re-opened earlier this month following a 16-month, $8.5 million earthquake repairs. Mr Macala said it was good the repairs had been completed as the pier is a historical landmark. • By Sarla Donovan A PETITION asking Parliament to return Redcliffs School to its former home has collected 128 signatures in two weeks. Organised by Friends of Redcliffs Park, the petition calls for urgent legislation enabling the school to reopen on its former Main Rd site. It follows Greater Christchurch Regeneration Minister Megan Woods’ announcement last month she would fast track changes to the city’s district plan enabling the school’s relocation to Redcliffs Park. Friends of Redcliffs Park spokesman Chris Doudney said he expected the petition would attract strong support. “Our experience is a lot of people have been very supportive of the idea of not taking Redcliffs Park. I think the majority of people in Redcliffs and Sumner think it’s a mistake; that the (Main Rd) school site is the best in the district and the school should go back there. •Turn to page 4 Worried about your hearing?
