MOVING: Swimmers take the plunge at Scarborough beach following the dedication of seats installed on the Esplanade in

memory of Paul Zarifeh and Sam Zarifeh.

SEVERAL hundred people

thronged to Scarborough beach

on Sunday morning to remember

Paul and Sam Zarifeh, the Sumner

father and son who died last year.

Paul died of pancreatic

cancer on November 23 aged

60. Three weeks later, Sam died

after falling from a raft on the

Landsborough River, inland

from Haast.

Memorial seats dedicated to

their memory were unveiled

on the Esplanade, opposite

Hardwicke St at 11am.

Staff and students from

Christchurch Boys’ High School,

where Sam was a teacher and

boarding master, performed

a haka on the beach and a

community mid-winter swim

followed, which attracted more

than 100 swimmers on an

unusually warm winter’s day.

Organiser Julie Zarifeh,

Paul’s widow and Sam’s

mother, said the occasion had

been a fabulous success and

thanked the community for the

“overwhelming support” shown.

BLACK CAT Cruises will

be instructed to remove all

non-authorised structures

from outside their premises on

Akaroa wharf.

On Monday, the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

rejected a city council staff recommendation

that only signs, a

ramp and hand rails should be

removed or cut back.

Instead,

they insisted

that all nonconsented

structures

should be removed

within

three months

– including

seating, a

and supporting poles.

The board felt the staff

recommendation did not go

far enough and did not reflect

community expectations.

It follows concerns from

wharf users and the community

that the structures were

encroaching on publicly-owned

land and creating issues with

wharf access – including for

emergency vehicles – and overcrowding.

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said a deputation from

Akaroa Fisherman’s Association

chairman John Wright at the

meeting was well supported by

a “large contingent” of members

of the public and business owners.

“It was very clear that the

view . . . of those attending –

through the deputation and

other comments made – was

He said the board had placed

“significant” weighting on the

community’s views when making

their decision.

Extra funding for

multiple projects

Multiple projects in the Bay

Harbour News area were

either brought forward

or given extra funding in

the Long Term Plan. Sarla

Donovan reports

•A total of $3.5 million for

the repair and upgrade of the

Diamond Harbour wharf has

been set aside, and the work will

now take place two years earlier

than originally planned. Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner said

the work was a “major capital

project” which would make

the wharf safer for elderly and

less mobile people. Cr Turner

said the money had been made

available by extending the current

funding time frame for the

Naval Point Development by

two years. “There are some big

projects in there that will require

quite a bit of planning and

community engagement and

engagement with other groups

as well. The good news is that

the $10.5 million remains on

budget for that first tranche of

work and by smoothing it over a

longer period of time, (through

to 2024/25 rather than 2022/23)

we’ve been able to bring the

Diamond Harbour wharf forward.”

Meanwhile $10 million

for renewal of Akaroa wharf was

confirmed in the LTP budget

with design work expected to

commence this year.

•A $10 million wastewater

treatment scheme for Wainui

is back on track after being

previously removed from the

10-year LTP. Cr Turner said he

was pleased to see the project

had been kept alive, after “raising

expectations” among the

Turner said he would be looking

to advance it further during

future LTP consultations.

•Funding of $80,000 has been

put in place to support a dedicated

park ranger based in the

Banks Peninsula reserves, along

with $50,000 of operational

expenditure. “Having someone

based there will be great for

building relationships between

groups on the peninsula,” Cr

Turner said.

•Capital expenditure of $13

million has been brought forward

into 2026/7 and 2027/8;

allowing the final Moncks Bay

section of the coastal pathway

to be completed. Heathcote

Ward city councillor Sara Templeton

said they were hopeful

of getting NZTA to find up to

50 per cent of the cost, due to

safety issues with that section

of pathway “and because it is

replacement for one taken away

due to rockfall remediation.”

She said now the funding was

within the city council’s 10-

year budget, and should NZTA

funding be forthcoming, the

city council would have the

option of bringing that money

further forward again.

•Additional funding of

$143,000 will go towards

surveying work and public

consultation on the future of

baches at Taylors Mistake beach

and Boulder Bay. A working

group headed by Cr Templeton

is developing a proposal to go

out for consultation in a few

months. “It’s important that all

of the information we have is accurate

and that we go through a

thorough process to ensure that

any decisions we make are good

ones,” Cr Templeton said.

Demolition work to

start at school site swap

• By Sarla Donovan

FENCES ARE up and

demolition work is imminent as

the controversial Redcliffs Park

and Redcliffs School site swap

begins.

The relocation of the school

to Redcliffs Park has been fast

tracked through special changes

to the District Plan granted by

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods in

May.

The existing school site will be

turned into a public park.

Redcliffs Residents Association

acting chairwoman Christine

Toner said like most Redcliffs

residents and former pupils of

the school, the

association

committee

would be sad

to see the

“much loved”

school buildings

go.

Simi Desor

“There are

varying views

in the community

about the changes but as

with all the changes we have encountered

since the earthquakes,

we will move forward and get

used to them eventually. For

those who are directly affected,

we hope that the Ministry of

Education and city council staff

will listen well and work fairly to

minimise any negative impacts.”

Friends of Redcliffs Park

spokeswoman Simi Desor said it

was not too late for a petition organised

by the group which asks

Parliament to enact legislation

enabling the school to reopen on

the former Main Rd site.

“It’s not done yet,” Ms Desor

said. “The petition is in place

(until July 23) and 158 signatures

thus far is not just a handful of

neighbours. People should have

She said the group was also

awaiting a report from the Ombudsman’s

park from this month, while

Politicians called in over rising sea levels

•From page 1

At issue is the way sites in a ‘restricted

unit overlay’ within the

High Flood Hazard Management

Area are treated by city council

planners.

CCRU say a restricted discretionary

activity rule recommended

by the Replacement District

Plan independent hearings panel

was left out when the plan was

implemented last year.

The restricted unit overlay

comprises 1486 residential zoned

sites within the HFMZA which

are only at risk from future sea

level rise – not river or tidal

flooding. But CCRU said that

property owners within the

restricted unit overlay have been

having extreme difficulty getting

resource consent. Without the

discretionary rule, under the

District Plan the sites are treated

the same as any others within

the HFMZA, whereby “new developments

or intensification of

land uses in these areas are to be

avoided.” Dr Latham said he was

“unaware of the reason why the

recommended rule was left out

of the District Plan but it’s something

we need to put right. We

are seeking clarification as to why

the intent of the wording does

not match what has been put.”

Sarla Donovan how she

at 44

What was it like to grow up in

Johannesburg?

Very different to the way of life

over here. We lived in a residential

area but you always knew

that on the outskirts you couldn’t

venture too far without danger

being in your face. I’m very

fortunate to live here but on the

odd occasion I have been back to

South Africa I would never really

want to go back again to live.

Did you ever experience a

dangerous situation?

When I was growing up, it was

always somebody else’s family,

but in more recent years, my

own family have been attacked

and it’s just a horrible situation.

I have no real regrets leaving,

although it was never something

I had envisioned doing, living on

the other side of the planet. The

biggest thing I miss is my family

because I have no South African

family here at all. But my family

were originally from Italy so I’ve

got them scattered around the

world. So I do miss my family

and I miss the sunshine but we

get to have good days here, too –

it’s not all bad.

Why did you leave and when?

I left in 1997 to go and do an

OE in London, as you do, and I

ended up getting a nice job as a

travel agent. I got to travel heaps

and I just loved the atmosphere

and got to run marathons all

over Europe so I stayed. A few

years before that I had met my

now-husband on a Kontiki trip

in Australia. When he told me he

came from an island called New

Zealand, which is in the middle

of nowhere, I immediately ruled

it out: I said that’s ridiculous, I’d

never go over there. We had this

relationship going for quite some

time and I just put it in the back

of my head that it would never

happen and then, eventually, he

lured me over here to see what

life was about and I just loved it.

I couldn’t put it off anymore, that

I really liked this guy. So I ended

up coming to New Zealand and

I’ve never looked back.

So you shifted straight to

Christchurch in 2004?

Yes, it was really fortunate

because I came over for about

four weeks my first time and

there was a running race called

the Crater Rim. It was one of

the first weekends I was here

and everybody was so friendly I

thought I was in running heaven.

I said to Lee ‘I just love this place,

why don’t we stay here?’ We got

married in Fiji and all my new

Which of the big marathons

have you done?

I did London six times, Hamburg,

Rome, Paris. I went over to

New York which was pretty cool.

So many I can’t remember. Quite a

few in London itself like the Big Ben to

Brighton ultra-marathon. We did the

Great Wall of China Marathon after I

shifted to New Zealand.

Best race of all time?

The Comrades Marathon in South

Africa. I have only completed two comrades

(so far) but they have honestly been

life-changers for me. There is something

special about running 90km with a bunch

of like-minded people from around the

globe. They call it the ‘world’s best ultra’

and I agree.

You ran a personal best at the

Christchurch Marathon this year. How

do you train?

I have a 17km circuit that I run three

to four times a week from home over to

Sumner and up Evans Pass back home.

It has an elevation gain of 430m and this

includes a 6km climb. My Strava app (a

running and cycling app) tells me that I

have run this 530 times now and all my

friends who run it call it ‘Lisa’s loop.’ On

the other days of the week, I run a 10km

circuit after I’ve completed a session at

the F45 gym in Ferrymead. I am totally

addicted to this ‘functional training’ and

it compliments my running immensely. I

believe that a combination of this ‘training

smarter’ has helped me achieve PBs

at the age of 44. I only wish I had started

earlier.

You also teach cycle safety for the city

council –you must be worn out at the

end of the day?

I’m usually in bed and asleep by nine

o’clock but my alarm goes off at 5.05am

and I get at least two hours of exercise in

before I have to put on my next cap, being

mum or off to work. But I enjoy it, I’m

definitely not an office worker any more,

those days are behind me; sitting at a desk

just makes me grumpy. Having an active

job and an active life is what I really enjoy.

What does your family think about

your passion for running?

My kids have grown up knowing that

mum trains and works hard to do what

she does. I’ve had both my hammies reattached

so it hasn’t all been easy going

but they definitely think that I’m better

off if I’ve been for a run. They know I’m

going to be in a good mood. If I can’t get

out for some reason, I feel it. I suppose

you could call it a bit of an addiction but

everyone knows that’s what I like to do.

My husband is very supportive, I couldn’t

do it without him, he’s amazing. And the

PODIUM: Lisa Brignull nears the finish

line to be the third woman home in

the Christchurch Marathon.

children, Cara (11) and Christopher (8)

have come to so many events where they

encourage me along the route. My son’s

really good at passing the water or a gel.

I guess you don’t have much time for

hobbies?

Not really. I’m hopeless in the kitchen,

Cara is a much better cook than me. I’ve

got a gorgeous dog, she’s a collie cross

huntaway and she runs with me in the

morning. She’s my other love, we do a lot

together. Keeping the housework up to

scratch, clothes washed and ironed, that’s

my other hobby.

What’s still on the Lisa Brignell bucket

list?

I would love to do the Boston Marathon

one day, that’s one of the big ones. And

I’d love to do something really out there,

like the Antarctic Marathon or something

ridiculous like that. I might have to wait

until the children have grown a bit more

as it’ll be really expensive. My running

friends say ‘Lisa, you need to go under

three hours and we’ll call it a day’. It’s only

a few seconds per kilometre but every

second counts. I’d love to do it though.

I think quietly in the back of my mind,

that will be my goal for the Capetown

Marathon in September – all going well. It

is supposed to be a fast course but they do

get big numbers.

Special service to mark Armistice Day

• By Sarla Donovan

THE SIGNING of the armistice

that ended World War 1 will be

marked with a special service at

the Akaroa War Memorial.

Church bells rang out around

the world on Armistice Day –

November 11, 1918 – signalling

an end to “one of the deadliest

events in the

history of

mankind,”

said Banks

The

formalities

planned for

11am on

Sunday, November 11, include

a guest speaker, readings and

prayers from a padre, the

singing of hymns and laying of

wreaths.

At St Peter’s Anglican Church

there will be 11 bell rings, 11

times.

Floral tributes will be

comprised of white flowers, as

would have been the case in

1918, said Mr Tichborne.

It’s anticipated that rolled

oat biscuits (forerunners of the

Anzac biscuit) will be served

after the ceremony, along with

tea and coffee.

In Okains Bay, the museum

will be holding a special lunch

following the service.

Almost 100,000 New

Zealanders served overseas in

World War 1 from a population

of 1.1 million.

New Zealand forces first saw

combat in 1915, at Egypt

and Gallipoli but were

engaged in the war until the

bitter end.

Around 18,000 New

the war, and there were 41,000

wounded or seriously ill.

House of Travel Ferrymead

because we’re cruisers too.

Mel Hubber Kim Beswick Melissa May

Owner Operator Owner Operator Travel Specialist

Exploring by sea is one of the greatest forms of travel I

have experienced. I have sailed from France around

Corsica and the Greek islands on a 130 foot luxury

yacht which gave me a great insight to some of the most

beautiful ports and marinas in the world. River cruising

is also a favourite and I have cruised the Rhine with

Uniworld as well as the Christmas markets from Prague

to Vienna with Avalon waterways. I also explored the

beautiful islands of Croatia with Katarina Lines.

Having worked on cruise ships for 8 years my first hand

cruise experience & knowledge is extensive. I have

literally cruised to all oceans and continents around the

world, on large, medium and small sized ships. Favourite

cruise destinations for me are the Caribbean, Norwegian

Fjords, Mediterranean and Antarctica. Recently I have

also experienced a river cruise on the Rhine with Avalon

Waterways & am looking forward to returning to Alaska

this year and revisiting my first ever cruise region.

Cruising is one of my favourite ways to holiday as it allows

you to do as much or as little as you like and getting the

variety of visiting a range of destinations without the

hassle of changing hotels and catching flights. I have been

lucky enough to cruise on a few different cruise lines to a

few different destinations, however one of my favourites

is cruising in the South Pacific. You can board the ship in

Auckland or Australia and get to visit some untouched

tropical Islands that you may not normally be able to get to.

I love cruising! I’ve been fortunate enough to go on a

few cruises, including a P&O one up the East Coast of

Australia and one around the Greek Islands and Turkey.

However, my favourite trip onboard a boat was a Sail

Croatia trip. This was great way to travel! I really liked

that you only had to unpack once, got to swim and relax

during the day, and at night you could go and explore

one of the various islands. I have a huge passion for

travel and love exploring new destinations.

I was lucky enough to sail the seven seas as a working

crew member on board various size ships around the

world for 5 years, to then be a guest onboard a Turkish

Gulet sail trip along the Turquoise Coast to most recently

an ocean cruise travelling solo in the Caribbean. Cruising

offers something for everyone and now I get to inspire

people to choose the right Cruise for them. To me travel is

addictive, it’s an awe inspiring journey of discovery which

fuels the soul & makes you richer.

Cruising is a fantastic way to see the world! I love

both the small ship experience, on board a yacht

round the coast line of Croatia, as well as the bigger

ship I was fortunate enough to enjoy up in the

Baltics. Nothing beats unpacking once and arriving at

a new destination each morning, relaxed and ready

to explore. Travel is my passion & I love helping

clients create an unforgettable experience that is

uniquely their own!

Young chefs earn place in competition

• By Sarla Donovan

TWO PUPILS from Heathcote

Valley School have won a

place in a nationwide cooking

competition with a creole dish

from Reunion Island, east of

Madagascar.

The pair qualified for the Root

to Tip final in Wellington next

month where chef Al Brown will

feature as head judge to crown

this year’s winners.

The Root to Tip competition

has gone national after last year’s

trial in Canterbury proved a

roaring success.

Otis Swallow and Noah Cobby

from Diamond Harbour School

won the inaugural competition.

Year 6 pupils Nia McDonald

and Jean Taylor competed

against six other teams from

Canterbury to take the regional

crown with their choko gratin

and rhubumble crumble.

The pupils had to grate, slice,

cook and plate a creative and

delicious vegetable-based meal

from ‘root to tip’ – leaving little

or no food waste.

Team manager and number

one fan Rosamund McDonald

will accompany the pair to Wellington

where they’ll go head to

head with 20 other budding food

enthusiasts from around the

country.

Ms McDonald said the gratin

recipe came through the mother

WINNERS: Nia McDonald and Jean Taylor in action at the regional finals of the Root to Tip

cooking competition. ​

of a friend from Reunion Island,

an elderly lady in her 90s.

“Creole cooking uses lots of

garlic and thyme and choko is

very common there. Ours actually

came from Gisborne because

the season here was cut short

with all the rain. Everything else

was sourced from our gardens as

much as possible.”

The rhubumble crumble was

an all-local seasonal affair made

from the next door neighbour’s

rhubarb, apple, lemons and

Heathcote honey.

They were ecstatic about the

win after practising hard all

week, Ms McDonald said.

SCHOOLS

TASTY: The winning dish –

choko gratin.

“I’ve just been so proud of the

girls because they’ve worked so

hard. To have this sort of success

it’s got them really excited and

confident.”

The final is on August 2

with the winning pupils each

receiving a $1000 account with

RaboDirect, plus one-year free

membership to the Garden

to Table programme for their

school and a range of other

kitchen items.

Redcliffs School pupils get

creative while recycling

TRASH LAB has arrived at

Redcliffs School.

On Tuesday and Thursday

the court area at the school was

alive with children creating

items out of cardboard boxes,

plastic, ribbon, and what you

would generally consider junk.

Pupils of all ages are getting

creative and building treasure

out of trash.

The older kids help the juniors,

and share ideas with one

another.

It engages an element of collaborative

learning, while helping

the environment by reusing

things and using imagination.

Said senior pupil Martina:

“It’s amazing what you can

make out of a few boxes and

some sellotape. Now there’s no

excuse to be roaming around

bored at lunchtime.”

Matariki Lantern Walk

THE JAMES Street Preschool

and Nursery in Redcliffs held

their yearly Matariki Lantern

Walk recently.

The children, including Marsaili

(top left), Jessica, Cian and

Hunter, used lanterns that they

made at the pre-school and the

nursery in the weeks leading up

to the event.

The walk finished with a hot

chocolate in the car park.

Many families took the opportunity

to get together at preschool

and catch up over a takeaway

dinner before the walk.

FUTURE: Ellen and Jessie discover a new form of transport using giant spools.

A LOSS to seaside rivals

New Brighton means it’s

now do or die for Sumner

if they are to make their

first play-off appearance

for the Hawkins Trophy.

Saturday’s 19-40 loss

means that Sumner are

now sixth and three points

off the fourth semi-final

position with two rounds

of the metro premier

competition remaining.

They play fourth-placed

Sydenham on Saturday at

Sydenham Park and will

need a victory to have any

chance of making the top

four. Sumner will take

confidence from their

meeting earlier in the year

which saw them record

their first ever win over

Sydenham in the premier

grade 35-20.

They will also have a

chance to claim the DCL

Shield for the first time

since 2016 after Sydenham

SCHOOLS

defeated Christchurch 25-3

to claim the shield at the

weekend.

After a nervous start to

Saturday’s game against

New Brighton, Sumner

found themselves trailing

0-10 following a penalty

conversion and penalty

try. However, when New

Brighton No 8 Aaron

McCoy was red-carded at

half-time for an alleged

head-butt, Sumner sensed

an opportunity with the

one-man advantage.

They would struggle to

take advantage of numbers

though, with New

Brighton continuing to get

the better of them in the

second 40 to widen their

winning margin.

“They just wanted it

more,” said Sumner coach

Martin Dodgson.

TAYLORS Mistake surf

lifesaver Louis Clark

has been selected in the

New Zealand water polo

team for the youth world

championships in Hungary

in August.

The 16-year-old impressed

selectors at a

national selection camp in

Auckland three weeks ago.

“It was a new environment

for me, those trials,

and I was a little nervous to

start with, but I felt better

the longer it went and to

be selected is such a huge

honour,” he said.

Clark said he followed

his older brother into the

sport at the start of high

school and has loved it ever

since.

“I’ve always loved being

physical in sports and

water polo is like rugby in

water,” he said.

Clark also splits his

time between competitive

swimming and surf

lifesaving at the Taylors

Mistake club.

Between his three sporting

ambitions, he has 12

regular trainings a week

which doesn’t leave room

for much else.

He said being able to

have the right balance

between power and agility

was crucial for water polo.

While Europe tends to

dominate the scene, Clark

said he and the rest of the

New Zealand team are

eager to test themselves

against the world’s best.

“It will be good to see

where we are at and test

ourselves against the best

for Saturday which didn’t

pan out as hoped. He

also heaped praise on

the performance of New

Brighton first-five Stefan

“That was probably the

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

A highlight this term has been the Academic Colours Assembly which

celebrate the success of our senior students in NCEA. Colours acknowledge

ability, hard work and an understanding of our school values – commitment,

perseverance and courage. One of my favourite sayings is ‘Excellence is

not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do’. All of us

are capable of making hard work a habit, in order to achieve to the best of

our ability.

On siting matters, the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch is investigating

sites which could be suitable for our new school and is actively considering

a number of options. We are excited about the future of Marian and are

hopeful for a decision soon.

MERCY CUP SPIRIT

Teams of Marian College students

competed in the Mercy Cup

Tournament in Timaru recently. The

annual winter event is held between six

Catholic schools in the region and each

take turns hosting. The schools send

their best football, hockey and netball

teams to compete and enjoy the spirit

of competition, collegiality and shared

Catholic special character and values.

WELLBEING TEAM

As winter settles in, the Marian

College Student Wellbeing Team has

been bringing sunshine and light into

the school.

The team includes students across all

year levels and is headed by senior

leaders Megan White and Mia Blyth.

“Every week two girls pair up – a

senior and junior student who might

not know each other – and come up

with a project drawn from the Hauora

model of wellbeing,” Megan explains.

“The topics are physical wellbeing,

mental and emotional, as well as social

and spiritual wellbeing.”

Projects include signing a pledge

t-shirt against bullying, stress-relieving

colouring in activities, crafts a ‘shout

out board’ where compliments are

shared and a performance by the ‘I am

Unbreakable’ world hip hop champion

dance crew (pictured).

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

We wanted a college that could meet the spiritual and cultural needs of our

girls. We liked the sense of community, that expects and models caring for

each other.

Marian offers a supportive and nurturing environment where our daughters

are known and not lost in the crowd.

BIG SING

Marian College’s talented senior choir Messa Di Voce performed in the Big Sing

- the secondary schools choral festival - at The Piano recently. Messa Di Voce

received an award for outstanding performance of a Māori song – Tīhore Mai.

At Marian our daughters have not only thrived academically, they’ve

received a well-rounded education with a strong understanding of

community and service.

Audiologist gets Rotary award

YEARS OF dedicated effort on

behalf of intellectually disabled

athletes has been recognised

with a special Rotary award for

Mt Pleasant resident Jeanine

Doherty.

Ferrymead Rotary presented

her with Rotary International’s

highest award, the Paul Harris

Fellowship for outstanding

voluntary contribution to the

community.

Mrs Doherty, an audiologist,

became involved with disabled

athletes after suffering a major

head injury herself.

Ferrymead Rotary members

felt her work embodied the key

criteria of the Paul Harris award

– “tangible and significant assistance

given for the furtherance

of better understanding and

friendly relations among peoples

of the world.”

Andrew Oswin, who has

won two gold medals in World

Games for the Disabled competition,

was at the Rotary presentation.

He described Mrs Doherty

as “a wonderful advocate

for special Olympians,” with the

ability to provide screening in “a

fun and welcoming way”.

Mrs Doherty is the health

representative on the Special

Olympics New Zealand board

of trustees, and an international

trustee of Olympics New Zealand

and numerous other related

organisations.

Special Olympics New Zealand

organises sports for people

with a range of disabilities,

among them intellectual, hearing,

dental, obesity, sight, down

syndrome and autism.

The Special Olympics aims

to help foster “joy, courage and

empowerment” among competitors.

Internationally, the movement

involves nearly five million

people in 172 countries, and

more than a million volunteers.

Fellowship.

As well as competition and

friendship, Special Olympics offers

athletes a screening service.

Mrs Doherty has been one

of the health professionals who

have provided their services free

to screen athletes for hearing,

sight, dental, infections, and

deformities. Screening is offered

at world, national and some

regional events.

She is also heavily involved

with the Special Olympics

New Zealand healthy athletes

programme for healthy hearing,

and has sought to extend this to

the broader, disabled community.

Through her Christchurch

clinic, she organises screening

for athletes from around the

South Island.

Final days for

Freemans

Dining Room

• By Sarla Donovan

A MUCH-LOVED Lyttelton

restaurant will close its doors for

good on Sunday.

Freemans Dining Room has

become an institution in the port

town over the past 12 years.

It continued to give diners a

warm Freemans welcome and

serve up authentic Italian pizza

and pasta, even as Christchurch

reeled after the earthquakes.

Co-owner Sarah Freeman

announced the move last week.

“Thanks for an amazing journey

Lyttelton,” she said in a Facebook

post. “After 12 years Freemans

in Lyttelton will be closing. New

owners will take the reins in the

coming month, rebranding a new

food offering for Lyttelton. For us

our time has come to an end as

we continue our journey at The

Birdwood.”

Freemans opened in April 2006

and Ms Freeman said they had

loved operating in the port town.

“Lyttelton is an amazing community

full of wonderful people.

They are warm, colourful and

vibrant people. (The dining scene

here) for us has got better and better.”

Sunday will be the last day of

operation.

Since the early ‘80s, artist Ashley Smith has lived and worked

from a crumbling, windswept headland on the North Canterbury

coast. He bought the land after discovering, during the course of

a six year global odyssey, that his juices liked being near the sea

and were most stimulated by his home region’s crazy weather

patterns.

“The sudden shifts of life’s flow passing through and around us;

culturally, meteorologically, personally, always have the power

to surprise.

You’re an island nation of pristine waters and clamorous birdcall

when a sail broaches the horizon…

You glance up from an endless summer to find a rampaging

southerly bearing down on you. …A young family-man, raising a

home on a rural headland, a moment’s distraction and suddenly

you’re an old, bald bloke rummaging for the car keys and your

friend’s name…” Ashley Smith

Ashley Smith hopes these paintings, from a milestone period of

his life will, like life’s gearshifts, have the power to surprise.”

Thank you for

helping your

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

B

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

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.
