PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Seats to remember Zed boys • By Sarla Donovan LATE LAST year, two members of Sumner’s Zarifeh family, Paul and then son Sam, died within three weeks of each other. Paul Zarifeh died of pancreatic cancer on November 23 last year aged 60. He co-founded the Canterbury Wetsuit Company, later Seventhwave Wetsuits, in 1987. Three weeks later, Sam Zarifeh died after falling from a raft on the Landsborough River, inland from Haast. On Sunday, a sculpture in their memory will be unveiled on the Esplanade and the occasion marked with a community mid-winter swim which the family hopes will become an annual tradition. The sculpture was designed and constructed by Sumner stonemason Mark Robberds after Paul Zarifeh’s widow Julie approached him about the idea. “It is hard to believe seven months has passed by since the losses of our beloved Zarifeh menfolk, Paul and Sam,” Mrs Zarifeh said. •Turn to page 5 Buy, Sell, Discover. with...

Lucy Broadhurst, who lives halfway up Scarborough Hill, was sitting with her partner in the bay window of their house about 10pm on a Monday night when they spotted a red light hovering about 20m away. They initially thought it was a vehicle’s tail light but recognised it as a drone when it started moving up and down. Ms Broadhurst reacted by pulling the finger, “which made whoever (was) controlling the drone immediately take it down,” she said. “It felt really creepy that somebody was looking into our living room. Our conclusion was it’s someone being nosy or, it seems a bit drastic, but scouting for stealing things.” Lyttelton Police Station supervisor, Sergeant Franco Lovrich, said police would be very keen to hear from anyone with information about the owner of the drone, or any drones spotted at night. It is illegal to use a drone outside daylight hours without special permission, or to film a person or their private property without their permission.
