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.

Worry a

drone is

spying on

hillside

residents

• By Sarla Donovan

SCARBOROUGH residents are

worried they’re being spied on by

drones.

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.

Focus on Peters over park

NZ First called

to honour

election pledge

• By Sarla Donovan

FRIENDS OF Redcliffs Park are

criticising New Zealand First

for what they say is a broken

promise to support the return

of Redcliffs School to its former

Main Rd site.

The group last week wrote to

the Acting

Prime Minister

and NZ

First leader

Winston

Peters calling

for his help to

“ensure that

the current

Winston Peters

long-standing

but inherently

unsound decision made by

Hekia Parata is reversed.”

Spokesman Chris Doudney

said the reversal of former Education

Minister Hekia Parata’s

decision to move the school

from its former Main Rd site

was an important election plank

prior to the November, 2017

election.

Since then, the party had been

“totally silent” on the issue, he

said.

However a spokesman for Mr

Peters’ office said the rejection of

Ms Parata’s decision was based

on “information that we had

while in opposition,” and that

since then the party had worked

with their coalition partners on

an approach.

“That approach was to give the

decision making power back to

the Redcliffs community,” the

spokesman said.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

“After 353 submissions made,

60 per cent of those submissions

were in support of the fast

track option suggested by the

Government. The children of

the Redcliffs community need a

school as soon as possible. The

decision made is the decision of

the Redcliffs community.”

But Mr Doudney said most of

the supporting submissions were

from Redcliffs School pupils and

parents.

Close to 100 came from children,

Mr Doudney said.

LOCATION:

Friends of

Redcliffs

Park do

not want

the school

relocated to

the park.

“If you analyse the submissions,

you’ll see they are gerrymandered,”

he said, adding that

it was “unfortunate the party

had made this change of policy.”

Meanwhile, a petition asking

Parliament to return Redcliffs

School to its former home has

collected 149 signatures.

Organised by Friends of Redcliffs

Park, the petition calls for

urgent legislation enabling the

school to reopen on its former

Main Rd site.

Your Local Views

Readers continue to debate

the Redcliffs School move

and Friends of Redcliffs

Park’s bid to stop it from

rebuilding at the park.

The group is circulating

a petition to take to

Parliament

D Moorcroft Critchley – I

totally agree with the comments

made by Redcliffs School

principal, Rose McInerney and

the school board of trustees.

I feel that the petition was illtimed,

insensitive and culturally

disrespectful.

Whether in agreement or

not, Redcliffs School will not be

returning to the Main Rd site.

That has been made crystal clear.

The decision has been made, and

sadly this has created division

within the community.

While respecting those who

oppose this, it is time to let go

and move on. Furthermore,

the personal attacks made

against the school principal

are unwarranted and totally

unfair. The long and demanding

process has been transparent and

democratic throughout. There

have been ample opportunities

during public consultations

for those affected to have their

say. We live in a democracy

and the majority have spoken.

The community will not be

deterred from their mission – to

finally return Redcliffs school

to Redcliffs. They have shown

great resolve, commitment and

determination throughout this

endeavour. This will continue.

A line needs to be drawn in the

sand now. The whole community

needs to come together

to discuss and resolve the

differences and concerns clearly

evident. This has always been a

priority for the school to engage

in, as they understand there are

some who are disappointed with

the outcome. My sincere thanks

to Rose, the board of trustees,

the parents, tamariki and the

community for their support

during this difficult struggle. Kia

kaha.

Christine Kirkland – I’ve

had three children attend

Redcliffs School on the old site

and know it well.

The buildings have not

DIVISION: The Government’s

move to shift Redcliffs

School onto Redcliffs Park

has divided the community.

deteriorated to any extent since

the earthquakes. Safety from the

rock face behind is now greatly

reduced since the loose rocks

have been brought down, so even

in an almighty new earthquake,

the rocks that might fall would

not reach out as far as the

original ones did.

The safety on that site is as

good as anywhere around that

neighbourhood or on the hills.

The original explanation that

children returning to the site

who were there at the time

of the earthquake would be

traumatised is totally irrelevant

now, as all children – even fiveyear-olds

at the time – will have

left school. The flood-prone park

will be a massively expensive site

to relocate the school to, due to

having to raise the buildings up,

put ramps and steps everywhere,

and redesign the landscaping

to provide usable dry areas in

winter months.

Neighbours who paid for

their location beside a park and

allowing views to the water will

have their properties massively

devalued. Access to school

grounds will require children

to cross the very busy Main Rd

in far greater numbers than on

the original site. It is not a wide

road and traffic build up around

that area is bad. If the original

site is to be turned into a park,

which will obviously be used

by people, and probably the

school children, how can that be

justified, when it is deemed to

be unsafe as a school location?

I seriously do not believe the

original site is dangerous enough

to abandon.

Richard Jones – I would

build a pre-fab by the road

running down the fence line

where the swimming pool was

(just two rooms initially). The

old building might eventually

come down and the hockey field

moved at a right angle. That

corner should be utilised as it’s

further from the cliff. Out the

back, build one (or even two

parallel) large stone walls like

they have at Sumner (where the

Marine Hotel was).

Samuel Zelter – The

arguments for moving the school

to Redcliffs Park are illogical and

purely political in nature.

The threat of rockfall: The

Redcliffs Park site is 20m from

the base of the cliff around Moa

Bone Cave. The back boundary

of the unadjusted Redcliffs

School site is in excess of 40m

from the cliffs.

The size of the sites: Redcliffs

Park is not a similar size to

Redcliffs School. For the two

sites to be made equivalent, the

entire portion of school land that

holds the assembly hall, junior

field, junior sandpit, and former

rooms 14 and 15, is shaved off of

the school site.

Main Rd is dangerous: Both

school sites have a fence line

directly onto Main Rd. Students

are one gate away from the busy

thoroughfare on either site, no

matter what. The Redcliffs Park

site is no safer than the current

site in this regard.

Developing a school in

Redcliffs Park requires city

council development rules to be

broken. The site is already floodprone

and sits about 1m above

mean sea level. In 50 years time,

the site will be regularly flooded

by annual heavy rainfall events. I

could go on with further points,

but these are the big four.

Sandy Thomas – When

will the Bay Harbour News stop

flogging this topic? How many

times has the siting of the school

on Redcliffs Park been allowed

ill-informed opinion space in

this publication?

Every time a page is taken

up pushing the views of a tiny

minority, the board of trustees

chairperson or the principal

patiently responds by reiterating

the facts. And now a blatant and

manipulative misrepresentation

of the school’s poroporoaki

(blessing ceremony) is given a

front page headline accompanied

by an irrelevant photo which

appears solely designed to draw

attention to the petition set

up by the aforementioned tiny

minority. Enough is enough. The

school has repeatedly stated that

its new design will show respect

for its immediate neighbours.

Let it go Bay Harbour News! It is

disappointing that a community

newspaper is choosing to

sensationalise this issue in such

an unbalanced way. What was an

uplifting, moving and respectful

farewell to the old school has

been completely hijacked by this

article. Whatever happened to

impartial journalism?

Editor Barry Clarke

responds – Bay Harbour

News has covered this emotive

and polarised issue fairly and

accurately, and will continue to

do so.

It would be a sad day for

society if news media didn’t

cover all sides of a debate, or did

not allow a minority voice to

have their say, simply because

it does not suit the agenda or

views of another group. Bay

Harbour News will continue to

provide our readers information

and updates over the petition to

Parliament and developments

regarding the school’s planned

shift to Redcliffs Park – without

bias or favour.

A responds to the

article about city council

transferring ownership of

Purau Maori Reserve to

Rapaki Runanga

Kathy Palmer – Return

Purau Reserve to the care

of Ngati Wheke. An urupa/

graveyard is not an appropriate

place for eating drinking and

sports, there are other reserves in

the area for such activities. If Mr

Kulpe wants to question the local

traditions, he can do no better

than go to Christchurch District

Libraries and check out Barry

Brailsford’s book The Tattooed

Land: Traditions of the Southern

Maori for excellently researched

evidence.

Street party, fireworks to close festival

The Lyttelton Festival of

Lights finishes on Friday.

Sarla Donovan reports

AN ART gallery that glows in

the dark is among the special

events in the 14th Lyttelton

Festival of Lights, which

culminates on Friday night with

the popular street party.

Along with food and drink

stalls, music, activities and light

art installations, Lyttelton

Primary School has teamed up

with microbiologist Siouxsie

Wiles to create Bioluminaire: a

glowing art gallery.

Two hundred pupils have

followed Dr Wiles’ formula to

create a glowing artwork in a

petri dish using bioluminescent

bacteria.

Lyttelton Primary School

principal Brendan Wright said it

was an exciting addition to the

festival lineup.

“Siouxsie is on a mission

to enthuse children with

both the art and the science

of bioluminescence. She’s a

wonderful science communicator

and we’re delighted she has

agreed to help the school produce

what promises to be a marvellous

new attraction for the Festival of

Lights,” he said.

Check it out at the Port Talk

building on the corner of Oxford

and London Sts.

Friday’s Matariki-themed

street party marks the high point

of the week-long festival.

Stages in Albion Square and

the family-themed Collett’s

LIGHTS: The annual Lyttelton Festival of Lights street party on

Friday will include the popular fireworks display.

Corner host a stream of diverse

performances from 7-10pm.

Events get under way with the

street parade at 7pm, then there

will be kapa haka, dance crews,

bands like The Settlers and The

Preservatives and a ukelele group

among the acts lined up to delight

the crowds.

The Lyttelton Port fireworks

display at 8pm is a must-see.

DJ Rang will host activities

for youth at the skate park on

Oxford St from 7.30-9.30pm.

Organisers recommend using

public transport to get there.

There will be two park-andride

locations in Christchurch

with buses running half-hourly

from 5.30pm on Ferry Rd outside

Countdown and from Chapmans

Rd, Woolston, by the corner of

Lock Cr.

Direct-to-Lyttelton red

bus shuttles will depart from

Enjoy some mulled wine

VOLCANO OWNER Sue

Curtin’s first Festival of Lights

was “quite a few years ago.”

Employed as a chef at Volcano

by then owners, Lois Ogilvie

and Peter Llewellyn Evans, she

helped at the street party, selling

mulled wine in front of the

restaurant.

And has carried on the tradition

since then. She remembers

those early years being “hugely,

hugely busy – we couldn’t pour

the wine faster enough.”

The street party has always

been popular, she says, except

for last year when numbers were

down a bit with the rain. But it

was still a good night out.

“It’s a really fun, social occasion,”

she said. “People do say

that our mulled wine is the best

on the street, we pride ourselves

on it. It’s a special recipe we

used when the Volcano was still

around: Lots of really good red

wine, nice orange juice, a good

splosh of port, some cloves, cinnamon

and honey.”

The festival has gotten bigger

and better organised over the

years, she said. “Project Lyttelton

does a great job.”

Her favourite part of the

night is the Port Lyttelton fireworks

display “and there’s some

amazing food on the street as

well.”

Paul Simon - The Life

By robert Hilburn

‘There’s no tougher a mind, no more tender a voice than Paul Simon, and there’s no better

man than Robert Hilburn to decipher the hardwiring of this hyperintellect...great songs can

never be fully explained, but the great man on his way to find those songs surely can.’ - Bono

Through such hits as “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Still Crazy After

All These Years,” and “Graceland,” Paul Simon has spoken to us in songs for a half-century

about alienation, doubt, survival, and faith in ways that have established him as one of

the most honoured and beloved songwriters in American pop music history. Yet Simon has

refused to talk to potential biographers and urged those close to him to also remain silent.

But Simon not only agreed to talk to biographer Robert Hilburn for what has amounted to

more than sixty hours, he also encouraged his family and friends to sit down for in-depth

interviews.

Paul Simon is a revealing account of the challenges and sacrifices of artistry at the highest

level. He has also lived a roller-coaster life of extreme ups and downs. We not only learn

Paul’s unrelenting drive to achieve artistry, but also the subsequent struggles to protect

that artistry against distractions - fame, wealth, marriage, divorce, drugs, complacency,

public rejection, self-doubt - that have frequently derailed pop stars and each of which he

encountered. From dominating the charts with Art Garfunkel and a successful reinvention as a

solo artist, to his multiple marriages and highly publicized second divorce from Carrie Fisher,

this book covers all aspects of this American icon.

Refugee

By Alan Gratz

JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930s Nazi Germany. With the threat of concentration

camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world ...

ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her

family set out on a raft, hoping to find safety in America . . . MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in

2015. With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, he and his family begin

a long trek toward Europe . . . All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge.

All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there

is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated

by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end.

This action-packed novel tackles topics both timely and timeless: courage, survival, and

the quest for home.

‘A bullet train of a thriller. The Day of the Jackal for the twenty-first century.’

- A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

‘Yes, The President is Missing is fiction - it’s a thriller - but James Patterson and I have

come up with three of the most frightening days in the history of the presidency. And it

could really happen... These days, the seemingly impossible can happen. And it happens

so fast. I believe that readers will not soon forget President Jonathan Duncan and his

story.’ - Bill Clinton

‘Needless to say, we had some great conversations about the presidency, what life in

Washington is really like, and about the state of America and the rest of the world.’

Home & Leisure Show

on this weekend

THE STAR Media Home

& Leisure Show promises

to be the best yet.

Celebrating its 20th year

of supporting local businesses,

the event has an

extra special flavour this

time around with a unique

tasting corner.

Event manager Vanessa

Fleming is super-enthused

about the new addition,

which reflects the importance

of leisure in people’s

lives these days.

“There will be a wide

range of food and drink

products to sample, which

people can then go home

and recreate in their own

kitchens,” she says.

And with the latest in

kitchen innovations and

products on display, it’s a

chance to get creative in

all aspects of life.

Said Star Media chief executive

Steve McCaughan:

“I am very excited about

the new elements we

have introduced with the

addition of our free taste

section, new glossy Home

and Leisure magazine, plus

fantastic prizes to be won.”

Seminars are held

throughout each of the

three days and feature

everything from starting

a renovation through to

the design and decoration

stage.

A hot topic this year is

water, with multiple water

filtration systems being

exhibited at the show,

along with spa pools

and the best in heating

technology.

“This show is designed

to inspire people with the

latest in home and lifestyle

technology,” says Ms

Fleming.

Port construction

noise until 2020

CONSTRUCTION ON

Lyttelton’s new cruise

berth gets underway

early next month with

residents warned to

expect intermittent noise

through to early 2020.

Pile driving will

occur six days a week,

Monday to Saturday, with

similar noise levels to the

construction of Cashin

Quay in 2014 and 2015.

However, given the

cruise berth’s proximity

to residents, noise will

be heard more widely,

Lyttelton Port Company is

warning.

“While the level of

noise cannot be effectively

mitigated, residents will

be able to view regular

updates to the planned

piling times on LPC’s

harbour watch website,”

chief executive Peter

Davie said.

Mr Davie said the size

of the original piles for the

berth had been reduced

to mitigate the effects

of noise on endangered

Hector’s dolphins.

“In the new design the

piles are now 900mm

in diameter, which

significantly reduces the

pile driving noise underwater.

The new design

does not require resource

consent to construct

the wharf, as it is within

the regulations of the

Lyttelton Port Recovery

Plan. We have applied for

consent to allow the larger

cruise ships to berth at the

wharf, and to undertake

minor dredging works,”

Mr Davie said.

Experience You Can Trust

The team at Redcliffs Pharmacy

provide decades of health

experience to their patrons and

are available to help answer

specific or general medical

questions about your health

concerns. No question is too

trivial for the team and you can

Catherine, Sandi or Daryl and

talk about medications and how

to best take them. There is no

charge for this service.

Redcliffs Pharmacy are long

standing community members.

Catherine started there as an

intern 29 years ago. Daryl has

been there nearly as long and

Sandi is coming up 20 years.

They love working

in the Redcliffs

community, where

people are so friendly.

Having been there so

long they know most

people who walk in

the door so are able

to provide a more

personalised service.

Daryl also keeps busy

in the community as

Sumner’s Fire Chief.

Their Pharmacists are

experts in medicines and

are available to discuss and

prescribe Pharmacist-only

medicines such as Viagra

for men, Trimethoprim for

urinary tract infections for

women, and contraceptive pills

(including the emergency pill) for

women.

At this time of year, they are busy

talking to customers with cold and

flu symptoms. People should check

with a Pharmacist before taking over

the counter remedies if they are on

any regular medications for blood

pressure or diabetes.

An important part of a pharmacist’s

job is to know when they can help

you or when they need to refer you to a GP.

The pharmacists at Redcliffs enjoy working

with the local GPs to ensure better health

for the community.

Another service provided by the pharmacy

is dispensing medications in blister packs.

This has a small charge but can make

taking a number of medicines a lot easier.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Helping kids deal with anxiety

Along with juggling

young families and

running businesses, yoga

instructor Jess Smith

and child psychologist

Emma Chapman started

up a series of mindful

retreats for the 9 to 14

year-old age group this

year. Based in Sumner,

they aim to help young

people manage the

complexities of growing

up in the 21st century.

They talk to reporter

Sarla Donovan

So why have you aimed the

retreats at this age group?

Emma: It’s a really good age in

their development to put mental

health strategies in place that are

a little bit more complex than

you could do with those under

the age of eight. Also they’re

really open at this age, they’re

not as self-conscious and you can

get a lot of good, honest work

done with them - would you say

Jess?

Jess: Yeah, they’re very honest

and they’re not so ‘in their head,’

their answers come out really

fast. And they’re fun to be with.

Emma: We give them this

journal that’s got a whole lot of

stuff in there so that throughout

their teenage years as they’re

growing and processing things

more they have these tools. It’s

almost like we’re trying to not be

the ambulance at the bottom of

the cliff, we’re getting in before

all that and giving them tools to

go forward with.

What are the biggest

challenges facing ‘tweens’ today

and how are you helping them?

Jess: One thing is they’re living

outside their body, not inside.

They’re busy looking at social

media and everything’s so out

in front of them, there’s so much

ALL ABOUT THE BREATH: Jess Smith and Emma Chapman run workshops for 9-14 year

old’s, building resilience and teaching young people how to manage stress and anxiety.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

comparison that they forget to

listen to that internal voice and

develop their intuition. Even

with yoga, I never teach that it

should look like this. I’m really

mindful of my language so it’s

more of an inquiry: ‘how does it

feel?’

Emma: We need to be able

to feel all of our emotions and

know what to do when they

overwhelm us. Social media is

about the persona of what you

want the public to see and often

that’s just happy, lots of friends

and all that kind of thing. And

we’re saying hang on, let’s get

back to what’s real in life and the

fact that not everyone’s happy all

the time, so what do we do with

those big emotions?

Can anybody attend a retreat?

Emma: Anyone can come.

These are strategies for

everybody, you don’t need to

have anxiety or be stressed out.

We would only ever restrict

anyone from coming if they

were working really closely with

mental health services, meaning

that being in the group would

put them so far outside their

comfort zone that it wouldn’t be

safe.

How do you think the

earthquakes have affected

young people in Christchurch?

Emma: For my part I think

it’s a very useful tool during

the retreats that children have

had the shared experience of

the fight/flight/freeze response

during the earthquakes and

we focus on how this has built

resilience.

Jess: Teaching them how to

breathe is a really important part

because as we know during fight/

flight the breath gets shortened

and the heart rate comes up

so we’re learning how to work

with that: grounding the feet,

coming back to the breath and

anchoring. It’s such a small

tool but it can go such a long

way.

Emma: The breathing is a huge

part of our retreats. We come

back and back and back to it.

Can you describe what you do

each day?

Jess: I start with a 90 minute

yoga practice, maybe some

meditation, a little bit of art work

and then we have a break, have

some food and then Emma takes

over.

Emma: Once they come to

me I usually do some psychoeducation

around their brains

and anxiety/stress, things like

that. So they’ve been grounded

by Jess and then unfortunately

I take them straight back into

their heads. But they’re ready for

it by then and it’s at their level,

just making sense to them as

why their bodies go into

fight/flight/freeze and things

like that. And then we work

through different strategies,

cognitive behaviour therapy,

acceptance and commitment

therapy, both of which work

really well with this age group

and it’s kind of up to them to

take those away and decide what

works for them and what doesn’t.

There’s lots

of homework involved with

that, and lots of sharing which is

really nice.

Mindfulness retreats for youngsters

•From page 9

Jess: By day three I have to

calm everybody down, they’re so

excited and talking and there’s

this beautiful friendship that

starts between everyone.

Jess: We’re trialling one day

workshops because the four days

is a commitment and expense

and at least it gives people who

can’t take breaks during the

holidays an experience of what

it’s like.

How did you come up with

this idea?

Jess: Emma actually contacted

me. A good friend of her’s came

to one of my yoga retreats (for

adults) and she mentioned that

she wished her daughter could

have gone and I think Emma’s

brain lit up and she contacted

me.

Emma: There’s nothing in the

market like it and for someone

like myself who’s a private

psychologist having to make

people pay $150 an hour to see

their children when I could

actually give thee same strategies

in a group setting . . . I just

thought we need to get this

out there. The mental health

service in Christchurch is

crazy, there’s a 28 week wait

or something like that to see

someone through the public

system. And although there’s still

a cost it’s very low compared to

what it would be

if you were doing it individually

with someone privately.

Jess: For me, yoga is in big

competition with rugby and

netball and just the A to Z of

activities. Kiwi kids have so much

on their plate besides just going

to school so when yoga gets put

on the table it’s kind of the last

thing a kid’s going to do so it’s

nice to offer it as something that

is going to benefit other aspects

of their life, not just physically.

You’ve run two retreats now,

what’s the feedback been like?

Emma: That it’s been really life

changing. They all want to do

it again. We have a form we ask

them to fill out at the end.

Jess: And they’re brutal!

(laughs.) As adults we’re so

conditioned to be nice but it’s like

“I didn’t like the food,” or “What!

Homework? I thought this was a

retreat!”

Emma: Then we have feedback

weeks or months later from

caregivers and they’re saying

they’ve really found it useful.

BALANCING

ACT: Yoga

teacher Jess

Smith juggles

her business

with raising two

children.

They go away with quite a large

pack of things so we’re not just

saying do the four days and see

you later, they’ve got things they

can go back to so when the next

big thing comes up in their lives

they can go back to their yoga

mat that they’ve decorated for

themselves and all of the things

that they go away with that

makes it doubly powerful.

Have you made any changes

since running the first retreat in

January?

Emma: Another big thing is

we used to just take girls and we

have decided to be more gender

diverse because of course there is

no need for it just to be girls. We

thought possibly it was going to

create a safe space but all genders

can do that.

And what does the future hold

for the Mindful Retreats?

Emma: We get a lot of really

good sponsorship from people

because we hate that people aren’t

able to come because of money

so ideally the government would

start sponsoring us and we could

roll it out across primary schools.

That would be where we’re

aiming for so we’re collecting a

lot of data so we can approach

government agencies and see

what they can do.

Volunteers help

make a difference

There are many

volunteers making

a difference in our

community, writes

National List MP for

Port Hills Nuk Korako

Last week was National Volunteer Week

– “ma tini ma mano ka rapa te whai”

(many hands make light work.)

Our chance to acknowledge and thank

those volunteers in our community for all

the work that they do.

I had a good start to my week volunteering

at Cultivate Urban Farm to harvest

vegetables for market. Their philosophy is

to not only nurture plants, but also to give

disadvantaged youth and the homeless the

chance for a fresh start through gardening.

It is a fantastic environment for youth

development and was a real pleasure to

work alongside them.

There are many ways we can volunteer.

The question is, how and where do I start

as there are so many great causes. Personally

I enjoy getting out and collecting for

as many worthy appeals as I can. It is a

great way of raising much needed funds as

well as catching up with the community

in the Bays and hills areas for a chat and

to see how things are for them. I also enjoy

the local planting days.

As well as the volunteer networks who

work tirelessly to keep organisations functioning,

there are our local unsung heroes.

They engage and help with our estuary,

rivers, conservation, community response

and community wellbeing.

Sumner Lifeboat, firefighters, coaches

and carers, resident associations, neighbourhood

watch, the list goes on. We

thank every single one of you for giving

your time freely. It is people like you who

make our world a better place, thank you.

If you would like to start volunteering

there is no better time than to start now.

Your local community group such as

Sumner (sumnercommunity.co.nz), Project

Lyttelton (lyttelton.net.nz), residents’

associations and other groups.

Volunteering Canterbury (volcan.org.

nz) is a good start. Giving even a couple of

hours a week of your time will make such

a difference to any cause, as well as enrich

your own life.

To all our volunteers, a huge thanks.

Bridge club spans half a century

Sumner Bridge Club

will celebrate its 50th

anniversary in September.

Sarla Donovan reports

YOU COULD say it was rain

that created the Sumner Bridge

Club back in 1968.

A group of people got together

- mostly men - who worked

at the Lyttelton wharves, club

president Julie Cunningham

said.

“The rules of stevedoring in

those days were that if there

was too much rain, you weren’t

able to work. So they used to go

indoors and play cards.”

Eventually they decided to

form a club.

They didn’t have premises

initially, but used the social hall

at the St John ambulance rooms

and the Sumner Community

Centre.

Its first session was convened

with 27 players on September 9,

1968, in the supper room of the

community centre.

When a run-down

weatherboard house in Dryden

St was spotted for sale at a cheap

price, the club bought it by

raising 216 debentures from their

members.

Purchased for $3750 in May,

The No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author returns with the

much anticipated new Logan McRae thriller.

Some things just won’t stay buried…

Logan McRae’s personal history is hardly squeaky clean, but now

that he works for Professional Standards he’s policing his fellow officers.

When Detective Inspector Bell turns up dead in the driver’s seat of a crashed car

it’s a shock to everyone. Because Bell died two years ago, they buried him. Or they

thought they did.

As an investigation is launched into Bell’s stabbing, Logan digs into his past.

Where has he been all this time? Why did he disappear? And what’s so important

that he felt the need to come back from the dead?

But the deeper Logan digs, the more bones he uncovers – and there are people out

there who’ll kill to keep those skeletons buried. If Logan can’t stop them, DI Bell

won’t be the only one to die…

Levi’s War

by Julie Thomas

A story of courage and bravery from a Jew behind enemy lines during the Second

World War.

How many secrets can one family hold?

Levi Horowitz isn’t a natural-born soldier. But in November 1938, Berlin is a

volatile place for a Jew, and the talented young musician secures passage to

Switzerland. Instead, Levi is taken to a Danish border checkpoint and from then on

his war becomes secret, even from those he loves best.

In 2017, a recording emerges, showing Levi in 1945 and revealing a story in

equal parts shocking and heroic. It is a journey that leads him face-to-face with

Hitler, and into a position to change the final outcome of the war.

Levi’s War follows on from the enthralling historical novels The Keeper of Secrets

and Rachel’s Legacy, this time tracing the story of the eldest Horowitz son. Whether

you’re discovering Julie Thomas’s books for the first time, or making a return visit

to the saga of the Horowitz family, Levi’s War will leave you utterly breathless.

Mt Pleasant Bridge Club.

This time it wasn’t rain, but

smoke that was the cause.

“In those days, people smoked

tremendously, particularly the

men. After seven or eight years,

some of the club members asked

the offending smokers to desist

while playing but they refused,”

she said.

So a group broke away and

formed the non-smoking Mt

Pleasant Bridge Club with 40

members in August, 1975.

But after a few more years,

Sumner also went smokefree.

Today the club continues to

thrive, with members ranging in

age from their 40s right through

to 93.

Ms Cunningham herself came

to the game at retirement age.

Having grown up in a

generation where a lot of people

played cards - “there wasn’t

much entertainment in the

evenings!” - she still had eight

weeks of lessons before starting.

And beginners lessons are

still offered regularly at the

club, which will mark its 50th

on the weekend of September

8 and 9 with a get together and

drinks on Saturday followed

by entertainment, lunch and a

tournament on Sunday.

Emotional match for Sumner

Nel to play at

St Leonards

one last time

• By Gordon Findlater

A TRIO of milestones will

happen when Sumner play New

Brighton in the ‘battle of the

beaches’ at St Leonards Park on

Saturday.

Both Tom Crozier and Josh

Loader will both make their

50th appearances for the club

while South African No 8

Dylan Nel will play his final

home game for the club before

relocating to Dunedin to begin

preparations ahead of the Mitre

10 Cup season with Otago.

“It’s a mixed bag of emotions.

Obviously I’m excited for what

awaits in Otago but it’s going to

be very sad to leave my Sumner

family,” said Nel.

It’s understood the club are

planning a ‘dress up like Dylan

Nel’ party after their match

against New Brighton.

“There will be a few tight pants

and low cut singlets,” said Sumner

coach Martin Dodgson.

The match is also very much

a must win for Sumner’s semifinal

hopes. With just three

matches remaining until the

play-offs, Sumner are in fifth

– just one point behind New

Brighton in fourth.

“She’s a very tight top six this

year . . . it’s going to come down

to bonus points,” said Dodgson.

Sumner’s last two top six

round robin matches will be

away to Sydenham and at home

against Christchurch.

On Saturday Sumner suffered

their first lost in the top six at

the hands of defending champions

Lincoln University 13-34.

However, Dodgson was happy

with the performance from his

team which saw them camped

on Lincoln’s line midway

through the second half with the

scored at 13-13.

Sumner on Saturday.

From there, Lincoln University

worked their way out of trouble

to score seven at the other end,

before scoring twice in the final

5min.

“We were much happier with

the performance compared to

last week,” said Dodgson.

“The guys were smiling

again and really enjoying their

rugby.”

The club will also celebrate

their annual ladies’ day on

Saturday where bubbles are

expected to be enjoyed under a

side-line marquee.

NEW MAN: Aiden Barbour-

Ryan has made the switch

from Selwyn United and will

look to lead the attack for

Bays in the newly reformed

Southern League.

Bays enter new era

FERRYMEAD BAYS enter a

new frontier on Saturday when

they kick off the newly founded

Southern League by hosting

Nomads United at English Park.

The 2017 Mainland Premier

League champions finished third

in this year’s campaign to qualify

for the newly reformed competition

which last existed in 1999.

The top five teams from the MPL

are joined by the top three teams

from the Football South Premier

League.

“Qualifying for this has been

a goal since the start of the year.

All of the guys are really excited

for it,” said Bays coach Danny

Halligan.

“The quality of the southern

teams is a bit of an unknown.

The long away trips and playing

on unfamiliar surfaces will be a

challenge, but it’s also very exciting.”

Bays face away trips to Dunedin

Technical and Invercargill’s

Southland United. However,

much to the team’s disappointment,

they have drawn Queenstown

FC at home, meaning a

much anticipated boys weekend

in Queenstown is off the cards.

The last round of the MPL was

held on June 9, and with grounds

closed in recent weeks due to

persistent rain, Bays’ preparations

have been unconventional

ahead of the new league which

consists of one round of games.

“We’ve focused on a lot of

fitness work and have even done

some boxing fitness sessions and

spin classes. We got in a practice

match on Thursday evening so

things are shaping well,” said

Halligan.

Bays will be without the services

of the MPL’s all-time leading

scorer Michael White who is

expected to miss the remainder

of the season after damaging cartilage

and ligaments in his knee

earlier in the year.

However, they have signed

exciting young striker Aiden

Barbour-Ryan from Selwyn

United, who possesses the pace

and eye for goal that was missed

with White’s absence.

A ‘gold mine’

of footwear

for all ages

The Footwear Factory in Garlands

Road Woolston has been a part of the

Christchurch retail scene for more than a

quarter of a century.

Over that time thousands of people have

flocked to the store to find bargains and

good deals in quality footwear, ranging from

children’s shoes, sandals and school shoes

to men’s and women’s fashion and causal

shoes, outdoor and sports shoes, bowls

shoes, slippers, and safety footwear for the

workplace.

Launched in a small shop in Papanui, the

business later operated in Riccarton for 12

years before moving to Garlands Rd 13 years

ago.

Owned by Russ and Jude Day, there you

will find shelves lined with footwear in a

huge variety of styles and colours for men,

women and children – a ‘gold mine’ for shoeseeking

shoppers.

The footwear is brought in from all over

the world, as well as coming from New

Zealand manufacturers, and includes ends of

lines and other well-priced items.

Four main brands are carried – the New

Zealand made McKinlays range of children’s

school shoes, as well as men’s and women’s

styles. The well-known Hi-Tec range of

outdoor footwear and tramping, New

Balance sports shoes and a range of Keens

sandals and outdoor footwear. These known

brands cover all ages.

New styles arrive almost every day, so

there are always more to try on, while Russell

and his second-in-charge Karen are happy to

advise on styles and sizing.

Located on a high-profile site at 47C

Garlands Rd, (next to Flags Tyre’s), the

Footwear Factory is easy to find, and there is

off-street parking available.

They are open seven days a week –

9.30am- 5pm Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm

Saturday and 11am-3pm Sunday. Phone

have given a mixed response to

the possible futuristic look of

Cathedral Square.

Plans for what the Square

could look like were released

by Regenerate Christchurch

yesterday after seven years of

debate and controversy over the

slow progress of the rebuild.

It includes three covered

pavilions, which would have

a “lattice-style” translucent

roof, which could host markets

and other events.

FUTURISTIC: Plans released yesterday show what Cathedral Square could look like.

The long-term vision, which is

estimated to cost between $60-

$80 million, aims to bring people

back into the area, through a

includes Cathedral Gardens

A CON man who tells his

intended victims he will harm

their families if they don’t pay up

may face a bigger problem than

the law – gangs.

Police have received 19 complaints

from Christchurch people

targeted by the sinister scam. It

involves phone

calls and texts to

victims who are

told the caller is

from the Mongrel

Mob, Highway 61

or Black Power.

Pay up or your

family members, Greg

including elderly Newbold

parents, will be

attacked, the caller says.

But it appears the con man is

not connected to the gangs, just

using their names to put fear into

the intended victims.

Canterbury University criminologist

Greg Newbold said yesterday

the gangs would be “filthy”.

“All I can say is he’s got a death

wish,” he said.

“They will be absolutely p***ed

off. Anybody who impersonates

a gang member is committing a

serious crime against the gang.”

Prof Newbold said the perpetrator

could get a “hiding” for that

alone.

A CONVICTED killer is back

Jamieson ran a short distance

he was apprehended.

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

The firs time I woke up with a cold nose in my brand

new home, I wa shocked. How could this be? The

cool, calm, co lected one and I had planned for our

home to be we l insulated against Canterbury’s

cold winters. Turns out, not we l enough. We’d

even assured a we l-meaning friend we had ample

insulation (yes, Duncan, you were right). I’ve worked out where we

fe l short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architec the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

Port Hi l site, where he planned to live in with his wife Lesley.

Sadly Peter died before realising his plans. We bough them and

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living a the time, to

prepare the construction drawings and specifications. Compared to

Australia, the R values for insulation would have looked high. Our

talented young builder, Sam McCarthy, would never have queried

the levels because they were standard practice around town. So it

wasn’t until we were living in the house and I consulted Council’s

eco design advisor Julie Vi lard about how we could warm it up that

we discovered, while we unwittingly thought we had exceeded New

Zealand standard, we had merely met Code. And that ain’t going to

cut it in our climate.

Fortunately Julie had plenty of ideas on how we could improve

the situation and we have easy access to our underfloor to top-up

the insulation. Julie Vi lard, an architect from France, is on a mission

to transform building best practice here and you can read abou the

groundbreaking ideas she’s applied to her own brand new build on

page 20.

I’ve shared the highs and lows of building with the other home

builders and renovators I interviewed and, like Diane (page 36), would

relish doing it again. I was struck by how a l the home owner said

what they most valued was the ability of their designer or builder to

“rea ly listen” to their wants and needs. I was also impressed by how

much Christchurch people love a good garage! We’ve got some ideas

for some top of their class cars to complement yours on page 81 and

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review a l the lates trends in everyone’s favourite room –

the kitchen (page 48), and share an easy yet impressive recipe for

entertaining friends in your fabulous new home on page 77.

I hope Peter Beaven would be pleased with how the cool, calm,

collected one and I realised his dream. Go chase yours people!

Gaynor

Speaking to the NZ Institute of Architects about ‘bespoke

architecture’ being a ‘minority pursuit’ not long before his death

Peter said “I am going to try to prove that it’s possible to build

modestly and cheaply with a little house for ourselves. It’s going to

be sustainable and it’s going to be beautiful and it’s going to be just

cheap – no more than an ordinary spec house. I’ l prove that it can

be done, and it might be the las thing I prove.”
