Don’t light our night sky – residents<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

“BLINDED BY the light” sang<br />

Manfred Mann in 1976.<br />

Birdlings Flat residents seem<br />

to be singing from the same song<br />

sheet.<br />

At a community meeting<br />

attended by 29 locals, all but one<br />

person voted for less lighting in<br />

the community.<br />

One of them, Rima Herber,<br />

told <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News it is an<br />

issue people in the area feel very<br />

strongly about.<br />

“Locals here love the dark<br />

nights and the starry skies and<br />

feel that their experience of<br />

these aspects of wild nature is<br />

seriously compromised by the<br />

current levels of street lighting,”<br />

Ms Herber said.<br />

She said the majority of people<br />

canvassed preferred no street<br />

lights at all.<br />

They are concerned the<br />

existing street lights are too<br />

bright and “intrusive” in terms<br />

of observing the night sky,<br />

especially the aurora, she said.<br />

WOMEN HAVE joined the<br />

Ferrymead Lions for the first<br />

time since the group was formed<br />

41 years ago.<br />

Rosemary Lory, Ann Newsom,<br />

Jenny Godden and Ann<br />

Finnemore recently became the<br />

first female members of the club<br />

at the recent annual induction<br />

of new members and officers,<br />

known as ‘the change over meeting.’<br />

Vice-president Bernie Godden<br />

said it added an extra special<br />

note to the annual event, held at<br />

the ‘Lions Den’ (aka the club’s<br />

meeting rooms in Ferrymead.)<br />

He said the change had been<br />

driven by current president Bill<br />

Newsom (Ann’s husband) “who<br />

decided it was about time we did<br />

it.”<br />

Mrs Godden, who is Bernie’s<br />

wife, said the club had made her<br />

feel extremely welcome.<br />

THAT WAS one sweet equaliser for<br />

Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s (see page 23) against<br />

longtime rivals Cashmere Technical on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Midfielder Chris Murphy nailed the<br />

critical goal in the 93rd minute.<br />

It means <strong>Bay</strong>s are two points behind Tech, Dunedin Technical,<br />

Nomads United and Coastal Spirit - still a good spot to be in<br />

the Southern league.<br />

Murphy told sports reporter Gordon Findlater: “I managed to<br />

turn a defender and got a little toe poke on it. I won’t glorify it<br />

too much, I’ve definitely scored some better goals in my time.”<br />

Meanwhile not such good news on the rugby front for Sumner<br />

(see page 20). Sumner went down to Sydenham and with it goes<br />

their semi-final hopes in the Hawkins trophy.<br />

Slower speed for Richmond Hill<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

RICHMOND HILL will have a<br />

restricted speed zone of 40km/h<br />

imposed from October as the<br />

city council attempts to address<br />

safety issues in the area.<br />

The 100 section-plus Greenwood<br />

Farm subdivision has<br />

generated additional traffic on<br />

the hill suburb’s narrow roads<br />

and increased community concern<br />

over driver and pedestrian<br />

safety.<br />

The restricted<br />

area starts at<br />

the bottom of<br />

Richmond Hill<br />

Rd where it<br />

meets Nayland<br />

St and stretches<br />

Sara<br />

Templeton<br />

up to the summit.<br />

Nayland St<br />

is not included. However, a trial<br />

30km/h speed limit there and<br />

on Wakefield Ave is expected<br />

later this year.<br />

Public consultation showed<br />

majority support for the measure,<br />

although a number of the<br />

68 submission criticised the lack<br />

of footpaths in the area.<br />

“It is very irresponsible for the<br />

city council to allow a new subdivision<br />

with hundreds of more<br />

vehicle movements per day and<br />

not upgrade the road and footpath,”<br />

said one submitter.<br />

“I would think this would<br />

actually be illegal. When we<br />

drive up and down the road, we<br />

daily see young school children<br />

in dark uniforms having to<br />

walk on the unlit road. It is just<br />

a matter of time before one of<br />

these children will be killed by<br />

a car.”<br />

City council manager planning<br />

delivery and transport<br />

Lynette Ellis said due to the<br />

physical constraints, particularly<br />

land stability, it was unlikely<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

SLOWER: The speed limit on Richmond Hill will be lowered to 40km/h. ​<br />

any physical widening will be<br />

initiated.<br />

“Any upgrade will be in the<br />

form of repair and resurfacing<br />

to the current road surface and<br />

footpath.”<br />

She said at the time the consent<br />

was granted in 2006, the<br />

developer was not required to<br />

pay development contributions<br />

towards associated transport<br />

activity.<br />

Heathcote Ward city councillor<br />

Sara Templeton has asked<br />

city council staff to “investigate<br />

the pedestrian safety concerns<br />

on Richmond Hill Rd outlined<br />

in the submissions and report to<br />

the (Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community) Board with<br />

potential solutions by the end of<br />

<strong>2018</strong>.”<br />

She said the lack of footpaths<br />

in the hill suburbs had been a<br />

concern for some time, “especially<br />

for children getting to and<br />

from school.”<br />

It will cost about $5000 to<br />

install the new 40km/h speed<br />

signage on Richmond Hill.<br />

SIGNAGE FOR place names on<br />

all Banks Peninsula walks and<br />

reserves should be in both Maori<br />

and English, a group developing<br />

the Head-to-Head Walkway<br />

says.<br />

The group has<br />

asked the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community<br />

Board to<br />

recommend the city<br />

council institute the<br />

change and also<br />

consider extending<br />

bi-lingual signage to all parks<br />

and reserves in Christchurch.<br />

Head-to-Head Walkway<br />

working group chairman<br />

Jed O’Donoghue said Banks<br />

Peninsula was of particular importance<br />

because of the specific<br />

cultural values that existed in<br />

particular areas.<br />

“Each place has its own level<br />

of cultural significance and a<br />

lot of that is built into the place<br />

names. It means a lot to the local<br />

runanga and iwi and I think it<br />

(is positive) for our whole society<br />

Jed O’Donoghue<br />

A TEMPORARY pop-up art<br />

gallery will be installed on<br />

the vacant site of the planned<br />

Lyttelton Museum on London St.<br />

A partnership between the<br />

museum and Te Hapu o Ngati<br />

Wheke - called WHAKA Project<br />

2 - will enable 25 contemporary<br />

artists with connections to Banks<br />

Peninsula and Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

to “produce works in response to<br />

local taonga from the museum’s<br />

collection in four, month-long<br />

exhibitions,” a city council report<br />

into the project said.<br />

It has been granted funding of<br />

$37,140 from the city council’s<br />

enliven places projects fund (formerly<br />

called the transitional city<br />

projects fund.)<br />

The fund was established in<br />

2012 to support projects in vacant<br />

city spaces and has a budget<br />

for the 2017-18 financial year of<br />

$150,000.<br />

The money will be use to<br />

fund “site activation, public<br />

programme delivery, exhibition<br />

delivery, artists’ fees, equipment<br />

and staff time, digital technology,<br />

Eftpos capability, exhibition<br />

materials, opening costs and<br />

deinstallation,” as well as support<br />

community engagement with<br />

the museum collection and local<br />

contemporary artists.<br />

An amount of $14,800 had<br />

been previously granted to the<br />

same entity to run WHAKA<br />

Project 1, which began on the<br />

site last week and will continue<br />

into <strong>July</strong>. That money was used<br />

to commission art from four<br />

Ngai Tahu artists “on themes of<br />

mahinga kai (food and natural<br />

history) and manaakitanga<br />

Bi-lingual signage for Banks Peninsula walkways<br />

to get used to place names in<br />

both languages.”<br />

Community boards were<br />

recently given Maori names<br />

by the city council to reflect<br />

an increased awareness of the<br />

language and culture.<br />

A city council spokeswoman<br />

said the Ngāi Tahu relationship<br />

team created the names “that reflects<br />

the wants of the rūnanga,<br />

(hospitality) to acknowledge the<br />

pre-colonial history of the area<br />

and welcome people back to the<br />

site.”<br />

WHAKA Project 1 will also<br />

include a “series of hakari<br />

(feasts) serving traditional local<br />

Maori kai to the community on<br />

the site accompanied by video<br />

projections and storytelling<br />

evenings to engage the<br />

community with the mauri (life<br />

force) of the place.”<br />

The second project plans to<br />

“expand on Project 1’s activation<br />

of the site” and will comprise<br />

a series of free, public talks<br />

and workshops on site during<br />

August, and a pop-up gallery<br />

from August to December.<br />

The city council innovation<br />

and sustainable development<br />

committee granted the money<br />

last week.<br />

and the desire to keep a Māori<br />

worldview towards naming each<br />

community board.”<br />

Island’s mountains.<br />

FUNKY: An artist’s impression of WHAKA Project 2’s pop-up art<br />

names begin with Wai, which<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board’s is Waikura<br />

– wai for waters and kura for<br />

Black Klansman - Race, Hate, and the<br />

Undercover investigation of Lifetime<br />

By ron Stallworth<br />

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE<br />

When Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police<br />

Department, comes across a classified ad in the local paper asking for all those interested<br />

in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a P.O. box, Detective Stallworth does his job and<br />

responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. He figures he’ll<br />

receive a few brochures in the mail, and learn more about a growing terrorist threat in his<br />

community.<br />

A few weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks Ron a question he thought he’d<br />

never have to answer, Would you like to join our cause? This is 1978, and the KKK is on<br />

the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard, David Duke, has made a name for himself,<br />

appearing on talk shows, and major magazine interviews preaching a kinder Klan that<br />

wants nothing more than to preserve a heritage, and to restore a nation to its former glory.<br />

Ron answers the caller’s question that night with a yes, launching what is surely one of the<br />

most audacious, and incredible undercover investigations in history. During the monthslong<br />

investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the<br />

military, and even befriends David Duke himself. Black Klansman is an amazing true story,<br />

a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.<br />

Bodacious: The Shepherd cat<br />

By Suzanna Crampton<br />

BODACIOUS: THE SHEPHERD CAT is a heart-warming and charming tale in which Bodacious tells<br />

us about life as The Shepherd Cat on Black Sheep Farm. ‘I am Bodacious, The Shepherd Cat , and<br />

this is my life story. I wasn’t always called Bodacious. I must have been called something else in<br />

my kitten-hood in the nearby city of Kilkenny, but it’s all a bit of a mystery to My Human. As far as<br />

she’s concerned, I appeared one day and have never left. It’s a secret I plan to keep.’ Written from<br />

the perspective of Bodacious the cat, this is a beautifully written memoir of Bodacious’s life on the<br />

farm and everything that entails — early mornings, frosty starts, beautiful sunrises, adventurous<br />

rare-breed Zwartbles sheep, hard work, entertaining animals, mouth-watering food, kind people and<br />

idyllic country living with its highs and lows. The Shepherd often tells Bodacious her favourite story<br />

of how she went out to buy red ribbon to wrap a gift for her friend, but instead came home with a gift<br />

for herself: a daring, assertive, ambitious cat looking for a home. But soon The Shepherd realises<br />

she needs Bodacious as much as he needs her. As soon as he arrives, Bodacious saunters around<br />

the farm like he owns the place and immediately establishes himself as Top Cat. But Bodacious isn’t<br />

content to pad round the house and curl up by the Aga, and soon he befriends a farm cat called Oscar<br />

who trains him in the ways of the farm. As well as Oscar, Bodacious gets to know all the other animals<br />

on the farm — cats Miss Marley and Ovenmitt, the scruffy border collie/fox terrier-cross called Pepper,<br />

and The Big Fellow, to name a few. With wonderful characterisation, humour, sharp observation, and<br />

a plucky attitude, Bodacious shows us the ropes of Black Sheep Farm. As we soak in the atmosphere<br />

of the house, the orchards and the fields, we also learn how this Top Cat Shepherd got his name – by<br />

being ‘Big, bold, beautiful, bolshie’, as his Shepherd always says…<br />

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That<br />

By Jayshri Ganda<br />

Finalist in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards<br />

We’ve all been there. Mum cooks a family classic and it’s delicimo. You try to<br />

emulate it at home and fail miserably. What does she put in it? What was that<br />

secret ingredient? Not wanting the family secrets to be lost for future generations,<br />

Christchurch woman Jayshri Ganda and her mum Laxmi Ganda created an Indian<br />

cookbook. And it’s like no other you have seen, anywhere.<br />

Many Indians left their home villages in search of a better future. They found their<br />

home in a place known as the Land of the Long White Cloud: New Zealand. With<br />

their knowledge of spices, they brought their Indian flavours, colours and traditions.<br />

The next generation and even their kiwi friends and families ask how to make a<br />

great curry - and the familiar respons is “a little bit of this and a little bit of that”.<br />

Jayshri and her mother Laxmi explore these dishes and hope to have found an<br />

answer they they can share with all New Zealanders.<br />

“At the induction ceremony everybody<br />

was incredibly pleased and excited.”<br />

She had met the other three women<br />

beforehand to share ideas on how they<br />

could contribute and at this stage there is a<br />

garage sale planned in a couple of months<br />

time.<br />

Mr Godden said it was a huge step<br />

forward for the club to have women<br />

members.<br />

Mrs Lory said she had previously been<br />

a member of the Omarama/Twizel Lions<br />

Club which had mixed membership.<br />

“I can see the benefits; we are stronger<br />

when we stand together,” she said.<br />

And with the city council looking to replace<br />

90 per cent of its streetlight network<br />

with brighter blue/white LED lights within<br />

the next three years, residents are worried<br />

the situation will worsen.<br />

The current lights in Birdlings Flat were<br />

installed in 2004, according to city council<br />

records.<br />

Ms Herber has written to the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board outlining<br />

the community’s concerns and asking it to<br />

investigate dark-sky lighting similar to that<br />

used in Tekapo.<br />

City council manager planning and<br />

delivery transport Lynette Ellis said the<br />

lights in Birdlings Flat would be replaced<br />

as part of the city council’s LED conversion<br />

project. “However, due to the special<br />

nature of the area, we would be happy to<br />

look at options,” she said.<br />

Once the city-wide conversion project<br />

was completed, it would deliver a 69 per<br />

said the move was “long overdue” and was<br />

one of the most significant events in the<br />

history of the club. The Lions organisation<br />

was founded in 1917, with an exclusively<br />

male membership. As the movement<br />

grew, women – particularly Lion spouses<br />

– embraced the Lions’ mission of service<br />

and began forming auxiliary clubs,<br />

formally recognised in 1975 as the Lioness<br />

Programme.<br />

The programme continued to grow until<br />

1987 when the international Lions Club<br />

constitution was amended to admit both<br />

men and women.<br />

Mr Godden said most Lions clubs<br />

in Christchurch already had women<br />

members.<br />

Don’t light our night<br />

sky, say residents<br />

cent reduction in electricity consumption,<br />

and reduce carbon emissions by 1500<br />

tonne and operational expenditure by $1.6<br />

million per year, said Ms Ellis.<br />

There are plans to install a control system<br />

that will allow lights to be dimmed in<br />

the early hours of the morning.<br />

Ms Ellis said the city council had<br />

considered research on the effects of LED<br />

lighting.<br />

“There is no reason to suggest that well<br />

designed LED road lighting using colour<br />

temperature of 4000K or less, has any<br />

impact on human health,” she said.<br />

Around 18 per cent of the current street<br />

light network is LED.<br />

Demolition work about to<br />

start as Redcliffs School<br />

site swap begins<br />

Craig Minehan - Like many<br />

others, I am bemused, astounded<br />

and angry that the Redcliffs<br />

School principal and the board<br />

of trustees failed to stand up to<br />

the bullying Ministry of Education<br />

when they decreed that<br />

Redcliffs School could only survive<br />

if it were relocated to what<br />

was once a rubbish dump, with<br />

ongoing flooding issues, possible<br />

tsunami risk, and arguably not<br />

what the majority of locals want!<br />

It is very clear to anyone with<br />

half a brain that the existing site<br />

is absolutely the best place for the<br />

school. It’s safe, solid (non-toxic)<br />

ground, well above sea level, fairly<br />

well sheltered from the wind,<br />

with no danger from rockfall.<br />

The board and principal have<br />

stated that “we had no choice,”<br />

and that it was “the quickest<br />

way to get the children back to a<br />

school in Redcliffs.”<br />

Well, they did have a choice,<br />

but they chose to give in rather<br />

than continue the good fight<br />

they began, and if they think it<br />

will be the fastest option, once<br />

the gravy-train of consultants,<br />

geo-tech engineers, etc start<br />

poking around in the boggy<br />

minefield that is Redcliffs Park<br />

. . . it may well take an awful lot<br />

longer than they think.<br />

Redcliffs School board of<br />

trustees chairman Darren<br />

Fidler responds<br />

For the benefit of those who<br />

are taking the time to write in<br />

to the paper now, I hope they<br />

do not forget the thousands of<br />

voluntary hours that went in<br />

to avoiding the closure of our<br />

school.<br />

These hours were given willingly<br />

on top of full time jobs<br />

(including keeping a great school<br />

commitments that our community<br />

enough to have dozens of experts<br />

helping us across a broad range<br />

of disciplines from geotechnical<br />

to political, from legal to media<br />

and many others besides.<br />

The vast majority of this help<br />

was voluntary, and if we didn’t<br />

know what we needed to, we<br />

researched it so that we could<br />

have an informed opinion. Much<br />

of the work we undertook is<br />

fully documented in the three<br />

submissions we made to the<br />

government.<br />

sleepless nights, significant stress<br />

are not obvious in this publicly<br />

end goal in mind: returning our<br />

school to our community.<br />

We at last have this certainty<br />

of a school in Redcliffs, with<br />

the build process proceeding<br />

well, thanks to the thousands of<br />

hours of dedicated and selfless<br />

volunteers. We’d like to take<br />

questions<br />

why consents are being<br />

denied or delayed to<br />

Redcliffs sites in the<br />

Higher Flood Hazard<br />

Management Area<br />

Many folk will remember<br />

British MP Austin Mitchell’s<br />

portrayal of New Zealand as<br />

being the ‘half gallon quarter<br />

acre paradise.’ In essence what<br />

he meant was that NZ is a<br />

wonderful place to live where a<br />

person’s home is their castle.<br />

Redcliffs residents are<br />

discovering that the investment<br />

in their home and castle could<br />

be undermined by city council<br />

planning policy. The city council<br />

selected 1m sea level rise,<br />

mapped the coverage area and<br />

is restricting building in these<br />

areas - Higher Flood Hazard<br />

Management Areas. There are<br />

1486 Redcliffs and Southshore<br />

properties zoned into the<br />

HFHMA. Residents wishing<br />

to build on vacant sections or<br />

extend their home will now<br />

likely face great difficulty.<br />

There are some sad stories<br />

circulating. People have in good<br />

faith spent many thousands<br />

of dollars on architect’s fees,<br />

then meet with city planners<br />

in pre-application meeting for<br />

which they have been charged<br />

exorbitant fees only to have<br />

impediments put in their way or<br />

worse, declined a consent.<br />

City council planning policy<br />

is coming at a high financial and<br />

emotional cost to ratepayers.<br />

Where residents are managing<br />

to obtain a consent, the city<br />

council then issues them with<br />

what is called a ‘Section 72<br />

notice.’ The dilemma with the<br />

‘Section 72 notice’ is that the city<br />

council will place a warning on<br />

the owner’s legal title.<br />

Before they do this they will<br />

ask the owner to acknowledge in<br />

writing the implications of the<br />

warning. This means the owner<br />

takes the risk thereby reducing<br />

the liability for the city council.<br />

Matters get further<br />

complicated because ‘hazard<br />

notices can affect your ability to<br />

obtain insurances and to on-sell<br />

your property in the future.’<br />

This is where the plot thickens.<br />

The independent hearings panel<br />

developed an overlay enabling<br />

building to be a discretionary<br />

activity in the HFHMA rather<br />

than a non-compliant activity.<br />

The problem appears to be a<br />

drafting error between the draft<br />

supplied to the hearings panel<br />

and the final draft supplied by<br />

the city council. An essential<br />

clause was excluded that would<br />

allow the overlay to be applied<br />

correctly as intended by the<br />

panel. The $64,000 question is<br />

why have the panel’s directions<br />

not been followed?<br />

The city council from my<br />

perspective are red-zoning<br />

Redcliffs residents by stealth.<br />

Only after Christchurch Coastal<br />

Residents United approached the<br />

city council with the issue did<br />

the city council start discussing<br />

the issue.<br />

Recently we have met with and<br />

sought the support of our local<br />

MPs to help resolve this concern.<br />

It is time for the city council to<br />

do the right thing by Redcliffs<br />

residents and to correct this<br />

major error.<br />

St parking<br />

mooted<br />

THE PARKING layout on west<br />

London St is being reviewed<br />

following the rebuild and<br />

relocation of Lyttelton fire<br />

station and the ambulance<br />

station.<br />

The section between Dublin<br />

St and Canterbury St currently<br />

has a variety of on street<br />

parking restrictions, parking<br />

signage, and line markings.<br />

Demand for parking is high at<br />

times, including on Saturdays<br />

during the Lyttelton Farmers<br />

market.<br />

Yellow cross hatching will be<br />

painted on the road to ensure<br />

entrances to St John and the fire<br />

station are kept clear.<br />

There is also a proposal to<br />

paint no-stopping lines outside<br />

Albion Square to allow access<br />

for maintenance vehicles.<br />

A five minute parking<br />

restriction outside the ATM and<br />

60-min parking from Spooky<br />

Boogie cafe and the old fire<br />

station site to Canterbury St is<br />

also being proposed.<br />

ANOTHER STEP towards<br />

tighter restrictions on freedom<br />

camping is expected today.<br />

Community concern about the<br />

number of freedom campers in<br />

Akaroa and other parts of Banks<br />

Peninsula has prompted the city<br />

council to look at amending the<br />

Freedom Camping Bylaw 2015.<br />

The city council regulatory<br />

performance committee is meeting<br />

today to consider a report<br />

that recommends amending the<br />

bylaw to prohibit freedom camping<br />

in all but one part of Akaroa.<br />

The freedom camping area on<br />

Rue Brittan would continue, allowing<br />

self-contained vehicles for<br />

up two nights.<br />

A “one vehicle per marked<br />

space” addition to the bylaw<br />

would help address overcrowding.<br />

“A prohibition across Akaroa<br />

will enable simple and clear messaging<br />

about freedom camping,’’<br />

the city council staff report said.<br />

If the report recommendations<br />

are adopted today, consultation<br />

will be held to gather public<br />

feedback on the proposed bylaw<br />

change.<br />

A hearings panel would then<br />

make a final recommendation to<br />

the city council on whether the<br />

bylaw should be amended.<br />

Any changes would be in place<br />

for the start of this summer’s<br />

freedom camping season.<br />

Akaroa residents have expressed<br />

concerns about some<br />

freedom campers’ behaviour,<br />

such as toileting in public places<br />

and dumping rubbish.<br />

A community survey showed<br />

63 per cent support for tighter restrictions<br />

on overnight freedom<br />

camping in Akaroa.<br />

Seventy-seven per cent of survey<br />

respondents were opposed to<br />

freedom camping in residential<br />

areas and 65 per cent were opposed<br />

to freedom camping along<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THREE FINALISTS have been<br />

chosen in a design contest for the<br />

Collett’s Corner site in Lyttelton.<br />

There were 31 entries for the<br />

competition, which was run by<br />

site owner Ohu Developments.<br />

The design brief was for a<br />

building which would house<br />

public baths, a hotel, retail spaces<br />

and a cinema.<br />

Ohu Developments founding<br />

partner Camia Young said she<br />

was “over the moon” with the<br />

three finalists.<br />

The finalists were chosen by a<br />

panel made up of Ms Young, an<br />

architect; New Zealand Institute<br />

of Architects chairman Tony<br />

van Raat and Deputy Mayor<br />

Andrew Turner. A public vote<br />

on the designs also informed the<br />

judges’ decision and was given a<br />

25 percent weighting.<br />

“Essentially it was a fourperson<br />

vote and the public was<br />

one of them,” said Ms Young.<br />

The chosen designs are<br />

‘Chance Encounters’ by Auckland<br />

studio AHHA; ‘The Hive’<br />

by Christchurch group In-Flux<br />

and ‘We Dine Together’ by<br />

Auckland collective Oto Group.<br />

A rooftop garden features<br />

in two designs while another<br />

proposes a rooftop urban farm.<br />

Laneways, bridges and courtyards<br />

also feature.<br />

The finalists now have eight<br />

SPACES:<br />

‘The Hive’ is<br />

one of the<br />

three finalists<br />

and features<br />

stacked<br />

modules<br />

reminiscent of<br />

the port and<br />

spectacular<br />

harbour views<br />

from a rooftop<br />

farm. ​<br />

Collet’s Corner finalists<br />

weeks to further develop their<br />

concepts before presenting their<br />

designs in September.<br />

Ms Young said it was an extremely<br />

difficult decision.<br />

“I would say there were nine<br />

that could have gone on to stage<br />

two. There were some really<br />

strong designs, there wasn’t one<br />

that just floated to the top.”<br />

She said each of the chosen<br />

teams was relatively young,<br />

“which was interesting because<br />

they were competing against<br />

some extremely established companies;<br />

the young teams tended<br />

to have more innovative ideas by<br />

way of the concepts themselves,”<br />

said Ms Young. The winner will<br />

be announced on September 14.<br />

Bar cafe on<br />

the market<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

A WATERING hole popular<br />

with Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

residents and visitors is for sale.<br />

Dark Star Ale House and<br />

Cafe, on Waipapa Ave, has been<br />

put on the market as owners<br />

Martin and Donna Richardson<br />

concentrate on developing their<br />

growing<br />

brewery<br />

business.<br />

Since<br />

purchasing<br />

what was then<br />

the Rough<br />

Diamond in<br />

2016, the cafe<br />

and pub has<br />

developed<br />

a loyal<br />

following amongst locals and<br />

the Dark Star ales have been an<br />

important part of that.<br />

The couple have decades of<br />

experience both in hospitality<br />

management and brewing.<br />

Mr Richardson, who is from<br />

the United Kingdom, has been a<br />

brewer for 30 years so a cafe and<br />

‘We’re just coming<br />

to an age now where<br />

we want quality of life<br />

with the family as well<br />

as running a business’<br />

– Donna Richardson<br />

brew pub seemed the perfect<br />

mix.<br />

Mrs Richardson said they had<br />

“loved the experience,” but the<br />

decision to sell was a lifestyle<br />

choice and would let them<br />

concentrate on the brewery and<br />

their family commitments.<br />

“Our children are still only<br />

13 and 15 and during winter<br />

it’s a lot more<br />

hands on . .<br />

. we’re just<br />

coming to<br />

an age now<br />

where we<br />

want quality<br />

of life with the<br />

family as well<br />

as running a<br />

business.”<br />

Dark Star<br />

beers are currently brewed<br />

through Eagle, Twisted Hop and<br />

Raindogs breweries using Mr<br />

Richardson’s recipes.<br />

They now hope to develop a<br />

brewing operation in Diamond<br />

Auctions onsite<br />

or inrooms?<br />

This has been a great debate among<br />

agents and property sellers for years.<br />

There is no question that auctions are<br />

a popular and successful way to sell a<br />

property but which is better, to hold your<br />

auction onsite as a stand-alone event or<br />

to have it among other properties at an<br />

independent auction venue away from<br />

the property? Here at Prier Manson Real<br />

Estate we support both situations but, in<br />

truth, we love our onsite auctions. Over<br />

the years we have literally conducted<br />

hundreds of auctions in our core trading<br />

suburbs of Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant<br />

and Lyttelton. Often they become a<br />

community event and it is not surprising<br />

to see the same faces in the crowd week<br />

after week taking an interest in what’s<br />

happening in their area or just enjoying<br />

the spectacle. And it still surprises us<br />

when something amazing happens at an<br />

onsite auction. Last weekend was a good<br />

example. At an onsite auction in Redcliffs<br />

we had two buyers turn up out of the<br />

blue who were literally passing by the<br />

property and thought they would stop<br />

for a look. Both ended up placing bids for<br />

it with one being the eventual highest<br />

bidder and new owner. Fortunately both<br />

bidders were known to us and we were<br />

happy to accept their bids but it still<br />

shows what can happen when the flags<br />

are flying and a crowd is watching on.<br />

Inrooms auctions also throw up surprises,<br />

particularly with our “as is, where is”<br />

properties. We are often seeing the same<br />

buyers turning up each week for our<br />

“as is” auctions and it is not unusual for<br />

one of these buyers to start bidding on<br />

a property they haven’t actually viewed<br />

when they see another buyer who may<br />

be known to them also bidding on it.<br />

Obviously we would never recommend<br />

buyers to bid on a property that they have<br />

never seen or had the chance to complete<br />

Due Diligence or had legal advice on<br />

however it is an interesting example that<br />

shows how confidence by one bidder can<br />

give confidence to another.<br />

Have a chat to us today if you are keen to<br />

find out more about bidding at auction or<br />

if you are considering selling.<br />

Blame game over large slip<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

BANKS PENINSULA farmer<br />

Giles Foley believes forestry<br />

trucks and wet weather caused<br />

a large slip along Gap Rd where<br />

he’s lived and worked for the past<br />

eight years.<br />

In April, Robin Hood <strong>Bay</strong><br />

Forestry started a trial harvest<br />

of 20ha from a 260ha block<br />

which lies between remote Robin<br />

Hood <strong>Bay</strong> and Peraki <strong>Bay</strong>, on the<br />

peninsula’s southern edge.<br />

But logging contractor PF<br />

Olsen - which last year hit the<br />

headlines after swathes of logs<br />

and debris were washed down<br />

from Waiake Forest, causing<br />

$100,000 of damage to Louden<br />

Farm in Teddington – doesn’t<br />

think trucks are the problem and<br />

neither does the city council.<br />

Mr Foley estimates around<br />

60 truck-and-trailer trips have<br />

been made up Gap Rd since the<br />

harvest began, each weighing 50<br />

tonne. He said the combination<br />

of wet weather and heavy vehicles<br />

resulted in the slip on June 14.<br />

However PF Olsen Canterbury<br />

branch manager Marty Watson<br />

said he believed it was wet<br />

weather that caused the slip,<br />

not trucks. He said the section<br />

of road was quite narrow and<br />

looked like it had been patched<br />

up over the years since Gap Rd<br />

was built.<br />

LOGGING: A Banks Peninsula farmer says forestry trucks and<br />

wet weather caused a large slip on Gap Rd. But a logging company<br />

and the city council disagree.<br />

“My pick is that’s been a<br />

problem spot all along,” he said.<br />

City council road maintenance<br />

manager Mark Pinner also<br />

rejected the idea logging trucks<br />

were responsible, saying the city<br />

council “did not believe the slip<br />

was instigated by the increase in<br />

heavy traffic but rather the wet<br />

weather.”<br />

Robin Hood <strong>Bay</strong> Forestry partowner<br />

Ben Moir told the <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News he had concerns<br />

about starting the trial harvest so<br />

close to winter, but strengthening<br />

and widening parts of Gap Rd<br />

was a condition of their consent<br />

and the work had taken longer<br />

than expected.<br />

“It’s unfortunate. I think it<br />

should be harvested in summer,”<br />

he said. However, there are still<br />

6000 tonne of logs on the site to<br />

be moved and Mr Moir said they<br />

needed to get them out before the<br />

condition of the logs deteriorated<br />

and they became unsaleable.<br />

That will mean about another<br />

120 truck-and-trailer loads on<br />

the road.<br />

It comes as new national<br />

environmental standards<br />

for plantation forestry take<br />

effect across the country. An<br />

Environment Canterbury<br />

working group looking at the<br />

standards is warning of the<br />

risks forestry poses to land and<br />

waterways on erosion-prone<br />

Banks Peninsula.<br />

The standards came into effect<br />

on May 1 and set out a consistent<br />

set of regulations for forestry<br />

owners across the country. It is<br />

likely to mean tighter rules for<br />

forestry operators.<br />

Working group member<br />

Virginia Loughnan told<br />

the Banks Peninsula water<br />

management zone joint<br />

committee recently there had<br />

been few resource consents<br />

required of forestry operators<br />

to date, and “very limited”<br />

monitoring of forestry operations<br />

on the peninsula.<br />

“There continue to be visible<br />

examples where forestry setbacks<br />

from waterways, roads and<br />

property boundaries have not<br />

been complied with.”<br />

Mr Foley believes better<br />

guidelines are needed for forestry<br />

operators in the future.<br />

Funding to<br />

help protect<br />

diversity<br />

EIGHT PRIVATE landowners<br />

on Banks Peninsula will benefit<br />

from thousands of dollars in<br />

funding to protect biodiversity.<br />

The city council-funded Biodiversity<br />

Fund provides $200,000<br />

a year to support ecological enhancement<br />

work on private land.<br />

Eight of the nine projects are<br />

on Banks Peninsula and all<br />

involve installing or extending<br />

fencing to prevent stock from<br />

accessing indigenous vegetation<br />

and/or waterways. Funding for<br />

the eight totals $171,671.<br />

Sites involved are within Orton<br />

Bradley Park and Living Springs,<br />

at Paua <strong>Bay</strong>, French Peak, Armstrong<br />

Stream, Wainui Stream,<br />

Duvauchelle Peak and Okuti<br />

River.<br />

Some areas support a high<br />

diversity of indigenous plant species<br />

such as at Duvauchelle Peak<br />

and Paua <strong>Bay</strong>. Others, including<br />

Wainui and Armstrong Streams,<br />

are home to threatened or at-risk<br />

fish and invertebrate species.<br />

The only project outside of<br />

Banks Peninsula to get funding<br />

was Smacks Creek, a tributary of<br />

the Styx River which was granted<br />

Students start rebuilding<br />

history at Godley Head<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

AN introductory trades course at<br />

the Ara Institute of Canterbury is<br />

helping to reconstruct history at<br />

Godley Head.<br />

Assisted by the Godley Head<br />

Heritage Trust and the Department<br />

of Conservation, 15 students<br />

are creating a partial replica<br />

of the port-war signal station,<br />

used to defend Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

during World War 2.<br />

The project involves building<br />

and painting a replica set of<br />

wooden cubby boxes, originally<br />

used by the New Zealand Navy to<br />

house signal flags.<br />

In WW2, navy sailors stationed<br />

at Godley Head used flags and a<br />

small Aldis searchlight to identify<br />

ships coming into the harbour<br />

as either friend or foe. If the boat<br />

could not be recognised or failed<br />

to identify itself correctly, they<br />

would contact the army, which<br />

could be mobilise troops within<br />

12min.<br />

When completed, the replica<br />

signal boxes will contribute to a<br />

heritage display at the regional<br />

headquarters building in Godley<br />

Head. The display depicts the<br />

events that took place at Godley<br />

Head during WW2.<br />

For high school-aged students<br />

from the construction and infrastructure<br />

pathways programme<br />

at Ara, the project gives them<br />

hands-on construction experience.<br />

The students come from<br />

secondary schools across the<br />

city, including Van Asch Deaf<br />

Education Centre and Linwood<br />

College.<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

Water Zone Committee<br />

Forestry on Banks Peninsula<br />

Fiona (Grace) Nicol, Banks Peninsula<br />

Water Zone Committee member<br />

Forestry is a topical issue nationally<br />

at the moment, with large rain events<br />

potentially a high-risk event for wash<br />

out of timber and exposed soil onto<br />

neighbouring properties and into streams<br />

and harbours.<br />

With its finger on the pulse, the Banks Peninsula Zone<br />

Committee (BPZC) has been working on this issue for the past<br />

six months and has received presentations from community<br />

and expert advice from both Environment Canterbury and<br />

Christchurch City Council.<br />

The main finding from the committee has been that up until<br />

now there has been regionally different, and sometimes<br />

minimal regulations, consents and compliance required for<br />

forestry all over New Zealand. But that all this is changing now.<br />

In May <strong>2018</strong> new National Forestry Standards were released<br />

by central government. These new standards will be<br />

streamlined into regional and local council rules and the<br />

industry will be more regulated than it is now.<br />

The BPZC is working with both Environment Canterbury<br />

and Christchurch City Council as they integrate these new<br />

national standards into local plans and rules. The committee<br />

has recommended that councils consider the unique nature<br />

of Banks Peninsula when determining how to implement the<br />

new rules.<br />

For example:<br />

• Peninsula soils are prone to erosion and<br />

there are a number of high-risk sediment<br />

catchments on the Peninsula such as<br />

Whakaraupo/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

• Banks Peninsula has many short steep<br />

catchments, streams and areas of biodiversity with<br />

important ecological and cultural values, many of<br />

which are already mapped. It is important that the new<br />

standards take these areas into consideration and these<br />

areas are protected.<br />

• The zone committee promote the compliance of the new<br />

standards by councils and also encourage communities to<br />

work in partnership to ensure that any breaches of the new<br />

standards are reported and recorded.<br />

The BPZC will work with councils to help communicate<br />

information about the new forestry standards and what<br />

it means for landowners and forestry operators on<br />

Banks Peninsula.<br />

It is early days but as more information becomes available<br />

we will help get it out to the community. Please keep your<br />

eye out in local papers over the coming months for more<br />

information about these new forestry requirements.<br />

The zone committee meet every month to discuss water<br />

management issues on Banks Peninsula so come along to<br />

one of our meetings and have your say.<br />

The Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee is a community-led committee<br />

supported by Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury.<br />

Beat school holiday boredom!<br />

Saturday 7 – Saturday 21 <strong>July</strong> <strong>2018</strong><br />

Back to the dance at Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong><br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE PIGEON <strong>Bay</strong> Settlers Hall<br />

is fairly unique among country<br />

halls.<br />

Built on the site of the Pigeon<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> Inn back in 1921, its sprung<br />

dance floor came from the old<br />

Canterbury Society of Arts<br />

building in Christchurch.<br />

Dance halls with sprung hard<br />

wood floors became common<br />

in the early 20th century, their<br />

spring provided through bending<br />

woven wooden battens.<br />

The flexible floor made it<br />

more comfortable to dance on<br />

and Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong> Hall went on to<br />

host many memorable balls and<br />

events.<br />

The upcoming mid-winter<br />

dance aims to bring back that<br />

tradition.<br />

Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong> residents Sandra<br />

and David Innes have fond memories<br />

of the annual balls.<br />

Seventy-six-year-old farmer<br />

Mr Innes is fourth generation<br />

Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong>, born and bred.<br />

He remembers the Reynish<br />

family - a well-known farming<br />

family in the bay - had enough<br />

sons to provide an entire musical<br />

group.<br />

Known as the Reynish Brothers<br />

Band, they played regularly<br />

at the hall throughout the 1950s<br />

and 1960s.<br />

Two much anticipated annual<br />

events were the Manchester<br />

Unity Lodge Ball and the Plunket<br />

Ball which continued through to<br />

the 1970s, Mrs Innes recalls .<br />

“In the earlier years they were<br />

quite a social event. People came<br />

from Akaroa and all around<br />

the peninsula. In earlier years<br />

they came (by horse and cart)<br />

and later they put on a bus from<br />

Akaroa to Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong>.”<br />

“There would be 200 people<br />

for a ball,” she said. “It was all<br />

long dresses and black suits,<br />

ball frocks and shawls on snowy<br />

nights. They had big suppers,<br />

plenty of booze flowing and<br />

always a band.”<br />

The hall has also been used as<br />

a Plunket room and a library;<br />

hosted weddings and other community<br />

events.<br />

But the time came when motor<br />

vehicles became widespread and<br />

people could drive to socialise<br />

and eat out. It wasn’t so important<br />

to have the local gatherings<br />

in the bay.<br />

And then the shop and the<br />

school went.<br />

“That made a huge difference<br />

to the Pigeon <strong>Bay</strong> community;<br />

many families moved away from<br />

the area,” Mrs Innes says.<br />

“it’s through the likes of (dance<br />

organiser Fiona Grace) now who<br />

are trying to get these community<br />

functions back again.”<br />

Settlers Hall grand<br />

opening on April 29, 1921<br />

the SS Cygnet sailed<br />

from Lyttelton with 120<br />

passengers, arriving in<br />

time for high tea.<br />

•Residents came from<br />

Akaroa and “every part of<br />

the Peninsula in goodly<br />

numbers.”<br />

•Between 400-500<br />

people attended.<br />

•Arthus Goodwin was the<br />

hall’s committee chair<br />

assisted by J Reynish, H<br />

Bloomquist, V Craw, H<br />

Pettigrew, F Corrigal and<br />

Allan Goodwin. He said in<br />

his speech it was one of<br />

the happiest moments of<br />

his life.<br />

EXPLOSIVE:<br />

makes a break<br />

early in Sumner’s<br />

match against<br />

Sumner’s semi-final<br />

hopes washed away<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

THEY MAY have started with<br />

a hiss and a roar, but Sumner<br />

were eventually put to the sword<br />

by Sydenham on Saturday as<br />

the wave’s semi-final hopes were<br />

washed away in the 8-38 defeat.<br />

It was hard to see the game<br />

getting as far away as it did for<br />

Sumner. They jumped out to<br />

an early 8-0 lead at Sydenham<br />

Park and looked to have taken<br />

inspiration from their under-12<br />

sharks team that defeated Sydenham<br />

22-12 earlier in the day.<br />

It took just 5min for winger<br />

Filimoni Waqainabete to break<br />

through a gap on halfway before<br />

putting in Charles Oswald to<br />

score in the left corner. The early<br />

advantage was then extended<br />

just minutes later through a<br />

penalty.<br />

This would be the last time<br />

Sumner would spend a prolonged<br />

period of time in the<br />

Sydenham half.<br />

The hosts stepped up a gear<br />

and quickly found themselves<br />

with a lead two tries to the good<br />

and playing with a one man advantage<br />

after Hayden O’Donnell<br />

was sent to the bin.<br />

“After the loss last week, it was<br />

just about having a swing,” said<br />

coach Martin Dodgson.<br />

“We had a good chance in<br />

their half up 8-0 and, if we score<br />

there, then we put them under a<br />

bit of pressure, but unfortunately<br />

they came down the other end<br />

and got a try.”<br />

The second half was one-way<br />

traffic for Sydenham who regularly<br />

found their way through<br />

Sumner’s defence.<br />

With a semi-final now out<br />

of reach, Sumner will be playing<br />

for pride when they host<br />

Christchurch at St Leonards<br />

Park on Saturday.<br />

SPORTS<br />

Running club takes<br />

13 podium finishes<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

THE SUMNER Running<br />

Club were represented by 42<br />

athletes at the South Island<br />

cross-country championships on<br />

Saturday where they recorded 13<br />

podium finishes.<br />

Runners across junior and senior<br />

grades assembled at the Ascot<br />

golf course at QE II Park in unseasonably<br />

warm conditions to<br />

take on the cross-country course<br />

with distances ranging from<br />

2000m to 9000m.<br />

The Sumner junior contingent<br />

of 28 competed admirably,<br />

taking home five medals. Silver<br />

medals were won by Charlie<br />

Bailey in the boys 13 grade, Lucy<br />

Wheeler in the girls 10 grade<br />

and Abigail Scott-Douglas in the<br />

girls eight grade. Bronze medals<br />

were won by Madeline Sharpe<br />

in the girls 13 grade and Zara<br />

Percasky in the girls eight and<br />

under grade.<br />

The highlight of the senior<br />

racing was a one-two finish for<br />

Sumner in the men’s 40 and over<br />

event. David Fitch was the first<br />

to finish the 9000m race in a<br />

time of 31min 56sec. He was followed<br />

by fellow Sumner runner<br />

Nathan Jones who came home<br />

second in a time of 33min 9sec.<br />

There was also victory for<br />

Graham Batchelor in the men’s<br />

70 and over race. Batchelor completed<br />

the 7000m race in 35min<br />

21sec.<br />

Sumner runners will now turn<br />

their attention to the Canterbury<br />

cross-country championships at<br />

Halswell Quarry on <strong>July</strong> 21.<br />

Injury time equalizer<br />

nets <strong>Bay</strong>s 1-1 draw<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

A 93RD-MINUTE equaliser<br />

from Chris Murphy saw<br />

Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s hold rivals<br />

Cashmere Technical to a<br />

1-1 draw at Garrick Park on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The late goal was also<br />

crucial to <strong>Bay</strong>s’ chances in the<br />

Southern League. The result<br />

means <strong>Bay</strong>s have two draws two<br />

their name after two rounds<br />

and are two points behind<br />

Technical, Dunedin Technical,<br />

Nomads United and Coastal<br />

Spirit, all on four points.<br />

Their equaliser against the<br />

competition favourites came<br />

SPORTS<br />

from a flicked on header which<br />

the central midfielder ran onto<br />

before putting the ball in the<br />

back of the net.<br />

“I managed to turn a<br />

defender and got a little toepoke<br />

on it. I won’t glorify it too<br />

much, I’ve definitely scored<br />

some better goals in my time,”<br />

said Murphy.<br />

Technical’s opening goal<br />

came in the first half after a shot<br />

from Aaron Clapham hit the<br />

post and sat up for striker Andy<br />

Tuckey to head home.<br />

“That was one of the only<br />

chances they had,” said <strong>Bay</strong>s’<br />

captain Richard Astley.<br />

“We felt we deserved the<br />

point at the end. We really<br />

fronted up and, if anything,<br />

were maybe unlucky not to do<br />

better to get three points.”<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s will host Selwyn United<br />

in a friendly on Saturday due to<br />

a break in the competition over<br />

the weekend for the Chatham<br />

Cup.<br />

Their next Southern League<br />

match will see them travel<br />

to Dunedin to play Dunedin<br />

Technical on <strong>July</strong> 22.<br />

SUPER CHARGED: The Electric Avenue team from Redcliffs<br />

School finished third in the EPro8 Challenge final last week.<br />

L-R: Lewis Hollis-Locke, Ruby Love-Smith, Ted Elworthy and<br />

Luca Rose. ​<br />

Creative challenge<br />

for Redcliffs pupils<br />

A COMBINED year 5 and 6<br />

Redcliffs School team faced off<br />

against opponents from across<br />

Canterbury in a contest of<br />

creative problem solving and<br />

engineering skills last week - the<br />

EPro8 Challenge finals.<br />

Challenges included building a<br />

mini-Mars Rover with a working<br />

gear box, or a 1.8m high crane capable<br />

of lifting 1kg of weight and<br />

building a booby trap that would<br />

automatically fire a party popper<br />

when a cookie jar is lifted up.<br />

Team member Edward Elworthy<br />

reported on the day’s events:<br />

My team was called Electric<br />

Avenue. We had to work on four<br />

pin bowling, snail racing, rowing<br />

machine and limbo bar.<br />

This was the grand final so<br />

the challenges were harder than<br />

usual. One of the rules was that it<br />

had to be fit for purpose. For example,<br />

one of the challenges was<br />

to build a bed and solar powered<br />

alarm for Uncle Albert, so you<br />

also had to build a bedside table.<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

My team came third-equal<br />

with Geraldine Primary School,<br />

alias GPS Magic. We tied with<br />

270 points each, 10 points behind<br />

the second-placed Tech Geeks<br />

[Ashburton Borough School]<br />

and winners Kaiapoi North Tech<br />

Knights [Kaiapoi North School.]<br />

It was an extremely stressful<br />

time as the equipment had been<br />

used by <strong>11</strong> teams before us so it<br />

was a bit worn out.<br />

Redcliffs School entered three<br />

teams, including a year 5 team<br />

called Amazonian Sloths, and<br />

a year 6 team, Zombie Warfare,<br />

which came fifth in the grand<br />

final with 240 points.<br />

The challenge was out of the<br />

whole of Canterbury.<br />

I’m very proud of this achievement.

Funny Kid - Prank Wars<br />

by Matt Stanton<br />

‘MY NEW ULTIMATE FAVOURITE BOOK!’<br />

- Lachie, aged <strong>11</strong>, on Funny Kid for President<br />

Every kid wants to laugh, but Max is the boy who can make<br />

it happen.<br />

As he and his classmates head off on a camping trip, the new boy,<br />

Tyson, decides to play some jokes of his own.<br />

Max is the funny kid... and now there’s a prank war to be won!<br />

Monsters in the lake, smuggling ducks, dig-your-own toilets, capsizing canoes,<br />

absolutely not falling in love and beans that give you the runs are just some of the<br />

things in store for Max and his friends in this brand-new adventure.<br />

For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates, FUNNY KID is the<br />

mega-bestseller from author-illustrator Matt Stanton.<br />

His name fills the streets with fear… In the chilling new crime novel from awardwinning<br />

author Liam McIlvanney, a serial killer stalks the streets of Glasgow and<br />

DI McCormack follows a trail of secrets to uncover the truth…<br />

A city torn apart. Glasgow, 1969. In the grip of the worst winter for years, the city<br />

is brought to its knees by a killer whose name fills the streets with fear: the Quaker.<br />

He takes his next victim – the third woman from the same nightclub – and dumps<br />

her in the street like rubbish.<br />

A detective with everything to prove. The police are left chasing a ghost, with no<br />

new leads and no hope of catching their prey. DI McCormack, a talented young<br />

detective from the Highlands, is ordered to join the investigation. But his arrival is<br />

met with anger from a group of officers on the brink of despair. Soon he learns just<br />

how difficult life can be for an outsider.<br />

A killer who hunts in the shadows. When another woman is found murdered in a<br />

tenement flat, it’s clear the case is by no means over. From ruined backstreets to<br />

the dark heart of Glasgow, McCormack follows a trail of secrets that will change<br />

the city – and his life – forever…<br />

upstairs deck. 5-6 bedrooms on offer with 2<br />

bathrooms and 3 toilets. This north-west facing<br />

investment for professionals who will appreciate<br />

the Mt Pleasant and surrounding environment.<br />

to enjoy stunning views of the Southern Alps<br />

and the Kaikoura’s, the Estuary and the Pacific<br />
