Don’t light our night sky – residents

• By Sarla Donovan

“BLINDED BY the light” sang

Manfred Mann in 1976.

Birdlings Flat residents seem

to be singing from the same song

sheet.

At a community meeting

attended by 29 locals, all but one

person voted for less lighting in

the community.

One of them, Rima Herber,

told Bay Harbour News it is an

issue people in the area feel very

strongly about.

“Locals here love the dark

nights and the starry skies and

feel that their experience of

these aspects of wild nature is

seriously compromised by the

current levels of street lighting,”

Ms Herber said.

She said the majority of people

canvassed preferred no street

lights at all.

They are concerned the

existing street lights are too

bright and “intrusive” in terms

of observing the night sky,

especially the aurora, she said.

WOMEN HAVE joined the

Ferrymead Lions for the first

time since the group was formed

41 years ago.

Rosemary Lory, Ann Newsom,

Jenny Godden and Ann

Finnemore recently became the

first female members of the club

at the recent annual induction

of new members and officers,

known as ‘the change over meeting.’

Vice-president Bernie Godden

said it added an extra special

note to the annual event, held at

the ‘Lions Den’ (aka the club’s

meeting rooms in Ferrymead.)

He said the change had been

driven by current president Bill

Newsom (Ann’s husband) “who

decided it was about time we did

it.”

Mrs Godden, who is Bernie’s

wife, said the club had made her

feel extremely welcome.

THAT WAS one sweet equaliser for

Ferrymead Bays (see page 23) against

longtime rivals Cashmere Technical on

Saturday.

Midfielder Chris Murphy nailed the

critical goal in the 93rd minute.

It means Bays are two points behind Tech, Dunedin Technical,

Nomads United and Coastal Spirit - still a good spot to be in

the Southern league.

Murphy told sports reporter Gordon Findlater: “I managed to

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

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

Meanwhile not such good news on the rugby front for Sumner

(see page 20). Sumner went down to Sydenham and with it goes

their semi-final hopes in the Hawkins trophy.

Slower speed for Richmond Hill

• By Sarla Donovan

RICHMOND HILL will have a

restricted speed zone of 40km/h

imposed from October as the

city council attempts to address

safety issues in the area.

The 100 section-plus Greenwood

Farm subdivision has

generated additional traffic on

the hill suburb’s narrow roads

and increased community concern

over driver and pedestrian

safety.

The restricted

area starts at

the bottom of

Richmond Hill

Rd where it

meets Nayland

St and stretches

Sara

Templeton

up to the summit.

Nayland St

is not included. However, a trial

30km/h speed limit there and

on Wakefield Ave is expected

later this year.

Public consultation showed

majority support for the measure,

although a number of the

68 submission criticised the lack

of footpaths in the area.

“It is very irresponsible for the

city council to allow a new subdivision

with hundreds of more

vehicle movements per day and

not upgrade the road and footpath,”

said one submitter.

“I would think this would

actually be illegal. When we

drive up and down the road, we

daily see young school children

in dark uniforms having to

walk on the unlit road. It is just

a matter of time before one of

these children will be killed by

a car.”

City council manager planning

delivery and transport

Lynette Ellis said due to the

physical constraints, particularly

land stability, it was unlikely

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

any physical widening will be

initiated.

“Any upgrade will be in the

form of repair and resurfacing

to the current road surface and

footpath.”

She said at the time the consent

was granted in 2006, the

developer was not required to

pay development contributions

towards associated transport

activity.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton has asked

city council staff to “investigate

the pedestrian safety concerns

on Richmond Hill Rd outlined

in the submissions and report to

the (Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community) Board with

potential solutions by the end of

2018.”

She said the lack of footpaths

in the hill suburbs had been a

concern for some time, “especially

for children getting to and

from school.”

It will cost about $5000 to

install the new 40km/h speed

signage on Richmond Hill.

SIGNAGE FOR place names on

all Banks Peninsula walks and

reserves should be in both Maori

and English, a group developing

the Head-to-Head Walkway

says.

The group has

asked the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board to

recommend the city

council institute the

change and also

consider extending

bi-lingual signage to all parks

and reserves in Christchurch.

Head-to-Head Walkway

working group chairman

Jed O’Donoghue said Banks

Peninsula was of particular importance

because of the specific

cultural values that existed in

particular areas.

“Each place has its own level

of cultural significance and a

lot of that is built into the place

names. It means a lot to the local

runanga and iwi and I think it

(is positive) for our whole society

Jed O’Donoghue

A TEMPORARY pop-up art

gallery will be installed on

the vacant site of the planned

Lyttelton Museum on London St.

A partnership between the

museum and Te Hapu o Ngati

Wheke - called WHAKA Project

2 - will enable 25 contemporary

artists with connections to Banks

Peninsula and Lyttelton Harbour

to “produce works in response to

local taonga from the museum’s

collection in four, month-long

exhibitions,” a city council report

into the project said.

It has been granted funding of

$37,140 from the city council’s

enliven places projects fund (formerly

called the transitional city

projects fund.)

The fund was established in

2012 to support projects in vacant

city spaces and has a budget

for the 2017-18 financial year of

$150,000.

The money will be use to

fund “site activation, public

programme delivery, exhibition

delivery, artists’ fees, equipment

and staff time, digital technology,

Eftpos capability, exhibition

materials, opening costs and

deinstallation,” as well as support

community engagement with

the museum collection and local

contemporary artists.

An amount of $14,800 had

been previously granted to the

same entity to run WHAKA

Project 1, which began on the

site last week and will continue

into July. That money was used

to commission art from four

Ngai Tahu artists “on themes of

mahinga kai (food and natural

history) and manaakitanga

Bi-lingual signage for Banks Peninsula walkways

to get used to place names in

both languages.”

Community boards were

recently given Maori names

by the city council to reflect

an increased awareness of the

language and culture.

A city council spokeswoman

said the Ngāi Tahu relationship

team created the names “that reflects

the wants of the rūnanga,

(hospitality) to acknowledge the

pre-colonial history of the area

and welcome people back to the

site.”

WHAKA Project 1 will also

include a “series of hakari

(feasts) serving traditional local

Maori kai to the community on

the site accompanied by video

projections and storytelling

evenings to engage the

community with the mauri (life

force) of the place.”

The second project plans to

“expand on Project 1’s activation

of the site” and will comprise

a series of free, public talks

and workshops on site during

August, and a pop-up gallery

from August to December.

The city council innovation

and sustainable development

committee granted the money

last week.

and the desire to keep a Māori

worldview towards naming each

tribe, and explored the South

Island’s mountains.

FUNKY: An artist’s impression of WHAKA Project 2’s pop-up art

The rest of the boards’ new

Black Klansman - Race, Hate, and the

Undercover investigation of Lifetime

By ron Stallworth

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

When Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police

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

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

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

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

community.

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

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

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

appearing on talk shows, and major magazine interviews preaching a kinder Klan that

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

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

most audacious, and incredible undercover investigations in history. During the monthslong

investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the

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

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

Bodacious: The Shepherd cat

By Suzanna Crampton

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

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

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

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

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

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

farm and everything that entails — early mornings, frosty starts, beautiful sunrises, adventurous

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

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

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

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

she needs Bodacious as much as he needs her. As soon as he arrives, Bodacious saunters around

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

being ‘Big, bold, beautiful, bolshie’, as his Shepherd always says…

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

By Jayshri Ganda

Finalist in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards

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

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

secret ingredient? Not wanting the family secrets to be lost for future generations,

Christchurch woman Jayshri Ganda and her mum Laxmi Ganda created an Indian

cookbook. And it’s like no other you have seen, anywhere.

Many Indians left their home villages in search of a better future. They found their

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

their knowledge of spices, they brought their Indian flavours, colours and traditions.

The next generation and even their kiwi friends and families ask how to make a

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

Jayshri and her mother Laxmi explore these dishes and hope to have found an

answer they they can share with all New Zealanders.

And with the city council looking to replace

90 per cent of its streetlight network

with brighter blue/white LED lights within

the next three years, residents are worried

the situation will worsen.

The current lights in Birdlings Flat were

installed in 2004, according to city council

records.

Ms Herber has written to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board outlining

the community’s concerns and asking it to

investigate dark-sky lighting similar to that

used in Tekapo.

City council manager planning and

delivery transport Lynette Ellis said the

lights in Birdlings Flat would be replaced

as part of the city council’s LED conversion

project. “However, due to the special

nature of the area, we would be happy to

look at options,” she said.

Once the city-wide conversion project

was completed, it would deliver a 69 per

said the move was “long overdue” and was

one of the most significant events in the

history of the club. The Lions organisation

was founded in 1917, with an exclusively

male membership. As the movement

grew, women – particularly Lion spouses

– embraced the Lions’ mission of service

and began forming auxiliary clubs,

formally recognised in 1975 as the Lioness

Programme.

The programme continued to grow until

1987 when the international Lions Club

constitution was amended to admit both

men and women.

Mr Godden said most Lions clubs

in Christchurch already had women

million per year, said Ms Ellis.

There are plans to install a control system

that will allow lights to be dimmed in

the early hours of the morning.

Ms Ellis said the city council had

considered research on the effects of LED

lighting.

“There is no reason to suggest that well

designed LED road lighting using colour

temperature of 4000K or less, has any

impact on human health,” she said.

Around 18 per cent of the current street

Demolition work about to

start as Redcliffs School

site swap begins

Craig Minehan - Like many

others, I am bemused, astounded

and angry that the Redcliffs

School principal and the board

of trustees failed to stand up to

the bullying Ministry of Education

when they decreed that

Redcliffs School could only survive

if it were relocated to what

was once a rubbish dump, with

ongoing flooding issues, possible

tsunami risk, and arguably not

what the majority of locals want!

It is very clear to anyone with

half a brain that the existing site

is absolutely the best place for the

school. It’s safe, solid (non-toxic)

ground, well above sea level, fairly

well sheltered from the wind,

with no danger from rockfall.

The board and principal have

stated that “we had no choice,”

and that it was “the quickest

way to get the children back to a

school in Redcliffs.”

Well, they did have a choice,

but they chose to give in rather

than continue the good fight

they began, and if they think it

will be the fastest option, once

the gravy-train of consultants,

geo-tech engineers, etc start

poking around in the boggy

minefield that is Redcliffs Park

. . . it may well take an awful lot

longer than they think.

Redcliffs School board of

trustees chairman Darren

Fidler responds

For the benefit of those who

are taking the time to write in

to the paper now, I hope they

do not forget the thousands of

voluntary hours that went in

to avoiding the closure of our

questions

why consents are being

denied or delayed to

Redcliffs sites in the

Higher Flood Hazard

Management Area

Many folk will remember

British MP Austin Mitchell’s

portrayal of New Zealand as

being the ‘half gallon quarter

acre paradise.’ In essence what

he meant was that NZ is a

wonderful place to live where a

person’s home is their castle.

Redcliffs residents are

discovering that the investment

in their home and castle could

be undermined by city council

planning policy. The city council

selected 1m sea level rise,

mapped the coverage area and

is restricting building in these

areas - Higher Flood Hazard

Management Areas. There are

1486 Redcliffs and Southshore

properties zoned into the

HFHMA. Residents wishing

to build on vacant sections or

extend their home will now

likely face great difficulty.

There are some sad stories

circulating. People have in good

faith spent many thousands

of dollars on architect’s fees,

then meet with city planners

in pre-application meeting for

which they have been charged

exorbitant fees only to have

impediments put in their way or

worse, declined a consent.

City council planning policy

is coming at a high financial and

emotional cost to ratepayers.

Where residents are managing

to obtain a consent, the city

council then issues them with

what is called a ‘Section 72

notice.’ The dilemma with the

‘Section 72 notice’ is that the city

council will place a warning on

the owner’s legal title.

Before they do this they will

ask the owner to acknowledge in

writing the implications of the

warning. This means the owner

takes the risk thereby reducing

the liability for the city council.

Matters get further

complicated because ‘hazard

notices can affect your ability to

obtain insurances and to on-sell

your property in the future.’

This is where the plot thickens.

The independent hearings panel

developed an overlay enabling

building to be a discretionary

activity in the HFHMA rather

than a non-compliant activity.

The problem appears to be a

drafting error between the draft

supplied to the hearings panel

and the final draft supplied by

the city council. An essential

clause was excluded that would

allow the overlay to be applied

correctly as intended by the

panel. The $64,000 question is

why have the panel’s directions

not been followed?

The city council from my

perspective are red-zoning

Redcliffs residents by stealth.

Only after Christchurch Coastal

Residents United approached the

city council with the issue did

the city council start discussing

the issue.

Recently we have met with and

sought the support of our local

MPs to help resolve this concern.

It is time for the city council to

do the right thing by Redcliffs

residents and to correct this

major error.

Changes

to London

St parking

mooted

THE PARKING layout on west

London St is being reviewed

following the rebuild and

relocation of Lyttelton fire

station and the ambulance

station.

The section between Dublin

St and Canterbury St currently

has a variety of on street

parking restrictions, parking

signage, and line markings.

Demand for parking is high at

times, including on Saturdays

during the Lyttelton Farmers

market.

Yellow cross hatching will be

painted on the road to ensure

entrances to St John and the fire

station are kept clear.

There is also a proposal to

paint no-stopping lines outside

Albion Square to allow access

for maintenance vehicles.

A five minute parking

restriction outside the ATM and

60-min parking from Spooky

Boogie cafe and the old fire

station site to Canterbury St is

also being proposed.

Consultation on the plan

closed on Monday.

ANOTHER STEP towards

tighter restrictions on freedom

camping is expected today.

Community concern about the

number of freedom campers in

Akaroa and other parts of Banks

Peninsula has prompted the city

council to look at amending the

Freedom Camping Bylaw 2015.

The city council regulatory

performance committee is meeting

today to consider a report

that recommends amending the

bylaw to prohibit freedom camping

in all but one part of Akaroa.

The freedom camping area on

Rue Brittan would continue, allowing

self-contained vehicles for

up two nights.

A “one vehicle per marked

space” addition to the bylaw

would help address overcrowding.

“A prohibition across Akaroa

will enable simple and clear messaging

about freedom camping,’’

the city council staff report said.

If the report recommendations

are adopted today, consultation

will be held to gather public

feedback on the proposed bylaw

change.

A hearings panel would then

make a final recommendation to

the city council on whether the

bylaw should be amended.

Any changes would be in place

for the start of this summer’s

freedom camping season.

Akaroa residents have expressed

concerns about some

freedom campers’ behaviour,

such as toileting in public places

and dumping rubbish.

A community survey showed

63 per cent support for tighter restrictions

on overnight freedom

camping in Akaroa.

Seventy-seven per cent of survey

respondents were opposed to

freedom camping in residential

areas and 65 per cent were opposed

to freedom camping along

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

THREE FINALISTS have been

chosen in a design contest for the

Collett’s Corner site in Lyttelton.

There were 31 entries for the

competition, which was run by

site owner Ohu Developments.

The design brief was for a

building which would house

public baths, a hotel, retail spaces

and a cinema.

Ohu Developments founding

partner Camia Young said she

was “over the moon” with the

three finalists.

The finalists were chosen by a

panel made up of Ms Young, an

architect; New Zealand Institute

of Architects chairman Tony

van Raat and Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner. A public vote

on the designs also informed the

judges’ decision and was given a

25 percent weighting.

“Essentially it was a fourperson

vote and the public was

one of them,” said Ms Young.

The chosen designs are

‘Chance Encounters’ by Auckland

studio AHHA; ‘The Hive’

by Christchurch group In-Flux

and ‘We Dine Together’ by

Auckland collective Oto Group.

A rooftop garden features

in two designs while another

proposes a rooftop urban farm.

Laneways, bridges and courtyards

also feature.

The finalists now have eight

weeks to further develop their

concepts before presenting their

designs in September.

Ms Young said it was an extremely

difficult decision.

“I would say there were nine

that could have gone on to stage

two. There were some really

strong designs, there wasn’t one

that just floated to the top.”

She said each of the chosen

teams was relatively young,

“which was interesting because

they were competing against

some extremely established companies;

the young teams tended

to have more innovative ideas by

way of the concepts themselves,”

said Ms Young. The winner will

be announced on September 14.

Bar cafe on

Since

the Dark Star ales have been an

important part of that.

The couple have decades of

experience both in hospitality

management and brewing.

Mr Richardson, who is from

the United Kingdom, has been a

brewer for 30 years so a cafe and

‘We’re just coming

to an age now where

we want quality of life

with the family as well

as running a business’

– Donna Richardson

brew pub seemed the perfect

mix.

Mrs Richardson said they had

“loved the experience,” but the

decision to sell was a lifestyle

choice and would let them

concentrate on the brewery and

their family commitments.

“Our children are still only

13 and 15 and during winter

it’s a lot more

hands on . .

. we’re just

coming to

an age now

where we

want quality

Auctions onsite

or inrooms?

This has been a great debate among

agents and property sellers for years.

There is no question that auctions are

a popular and successful way to sell a

property but which is better, to hold your

auction onsite as a stand-alone event or

to have it among other properties at an

independent auction venue away from

the property? Here at Prier Manson Real

Estate we support both situations but, in

truth, we love our onsite auctions. Over

the years we have literally conducted

hundreds of auctions in our core trading

suburbs of Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant

and Lyttelton. Often they become a

community event and it is not surprising

to see the same faces in the crowd week

after week taking an interest in what’s

happening in their area or just enjoying

the spectacle. And it still surprises us

when something amazing happens at an

onsite auction. Last weekend was a good

example. At an onsite auction in Redcliffs

we had two buyers turn up out of the

blue who were literally passing by the

property and thought they would stop

for a look. Both ended up placing bids for

it with one being the eventual highest

bidder and new owner. Fortunately both

bidders were known to us and we were

happy to accept their bids but it still

shows what can happen when the flags

are flying and a crowd is watching on.

Inrooms auctions also throw up surprises,

particularly with our “as is, where is”

properties. We are often seeing the same

buyers turning up each week for our

“as is” auctions and it is not unusual for

one of these buyers to start bidding on

a property they haven’t actually viewed

when they see another buyer who may

be known to them also bidding on it.

Obviously we would never recommend

buyers to bid on a property that they have

never seen or had the chance to complete

Due Diligence or had legal advice on

however it is an interesting example that

shows how confidence by one bidder can

give confidence to another.

Have a chat to us today if you are keen to

find out more about bidding at auction or

if you are considering selling.

Blame game over large slip

• By Sarla Donovan

BANKS PENINSULA farmer

Giles Foley believes forestry

trucks and wet weather caused

a large slip along Gap Rd where

he’s lived and worked for the past

eight years.

In April, Robin Hood Bay

Forestry started a trial harvest

of 20ha from a 260ha block

which lies between remote Robin

Hood Bay and Peraki Bay, on the

peninsula’s southern edge.

But logging contractor PF

Olsen - which last year hit the

headlines after swathes of logs

and debris were washed down

from Waiake Forest, causing

$100,000 of damage to Louden

Farm in Teddington – doesn’t

think trucks are the problem and

neither does the city council.

Mr Foley estimates around

60 truck-and-trailer trips have

been made up Gap Rd since the

harvest began, each weighing 50

tonne. He said the combination

of wet weather and heavy vehicles

resulted in the slip on June 14.

However PF Olsen Canterbury

branch manager Marty Watson

said he believed it was wet

weather that caused the slip,

not trucks. He said the section

of road was quite narrow and

looked like it had been patched

up over the years since Gap Rd

was built.

LOGGING: A Banks Peninsula farmer says forestry trucks and

wet weather caused a large slip on Gap Rd. But a logging company

and the city council disagree.

“My pick is that’s been a

problem spot all along,” he said.

City council road maintenance

manager Mark Pinner also

rejected the idea logging trucks

were responsible, saying the city

council “did not believe the slip

was instigated by the increase in

heavy traffic but rather the wet

weather.”

Robin Hood Bay Forestry partowner

Ben Moir told the Bay

Harbour News he had concerns

about starting the trial harvest so

close to winter, but strengthening

and widening parts of Gap Rd

was a condition of their consent

and the work had taken longer

than expected.

“It’s unfortunate. I think it

should be harvested in summer,”

he said. However, there are still

6000 tonne of logs on the site to

be moved and Mr Moir said they

needed to get them out before the

condition of the logs deteriorated

and they became unsaleable.

That will mean about another

120 truck-and-trailer loads on

the road.

It comes as new national

environmental standards

for plantation forestry take

effect across the country. An

Environment Canterbury

working group looking at the

standards is warning of the

risks forestry poses to land and

waterways on erosion-prone

Banks Peninsula.

The standards came into effect

on May 1 and set out a consistent

set of regulations for forestry

owners across the country. It is

likely to mean tighter rules for

forestry operators.

Working group member

Virginia Loughnan told

the Banks Peninsula water

management zone joint

committee recently there had

been few resource consents

required of forestry operators

to date, and “very limited”

monitoring of forestry operations

on the peninsula.

“There continue to be visible

examples where forestry setbacks

from waterways, roads and

property boundaries have not

been complied with.”

Mr Foley believes better

guidelines are needed for forestry

operators in the future.

partial replica of the signal station at

It was Tim ‘Cool Man’ Kearns’ last day as acting principal at

Our Lady Star of the Sea School on Friday. To celebrate, he

shouted all the pupils Mr Whippy ice cream, which proved

a massive hit with one and all. Mr Kearns has filled the

principal’s role since John Kane stepped down after four

years in December to become principal at Tai Tapu School.

Students start rebuilding

history at Godley Head

• By Sarla Donovan

AN introductory trades course at

the Ara Institute of Canterbury is

helping to reconstruct history at

Godley Head.

Assisted by the Godley Head

Heritage Trust and the Department

of Conservation, 15 students

are creating a partial replica

of the port-war signal station,

used to defend Lyttelton Harbour

during World War 2.

The project involves building

and painting a replica set of

wooden cubby boxes, originally

used by the New Zealand Navy to

house signal flags.

In WW2, navy sailors stationed

at Godley Head used flags and a

small Aldis searchlight to identify

ships coming into the harbour

as either friend or foe. If the boat

could not be recognised or failed

to identify itself correctly, they

would contact the army, which

could be mobilise troops within

12min.

When completed, the replica

signal boxes will contribute to a

heritage display at the regional

headquarters building in Godley

Head. The display depicts the

events that took place at Godley

Head during WW2.

For high school-aged students

from the construction and infrastructure

pathways programme

at Ara, the project gives them

hands-on construction experience.

The students come from

secondary schools across the

city, including Van Asch Deaf

Education Centre and Linwood

College.

Banks Peninsula

Water Zone Committee

Forestry on Banks Peninsula

Fiona (Grace) Nicol, Banks Peninsula

Water Zone Committee member

Forestry is a topical issue nationally

at the moment, with large rain events

potentially a high-risk event for wash

out of timber and exposed soil onto

neighbouring properties and into streams

and harbours.

With its finger on the pulse, the Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee (BPZC) has been working on this issue for the past

six months and has received presentations from community

and expert advice from both Environment Canterbury and

Christchurch City Council.

The main finding from the committee has been that up until

now there has been regionally different, and sometimes

minimal regulations, consents and compliance required for

forestry all over New Zealand. But that all this is changing now.

In May 2018 new National Forestry Standards were released

by central government. These new standards will be

streamlined into regional and local council rules and the

industry will be more regulated than it is now.

The BPZC is working with both Environment Canterbury

and Christchurch City Council as they integrate these new

national standards into local plans and rules. The committee

has recommended that councils consider the unique nature

of Banks Peninsula when determining how to implement the

new rules.

For example:

• Peninsula soils are prone to erosion and

there are a number of high-risk sediment

catchments on the Peninsula such as

Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Harbour.

• Banks Peninsula has many short steep

catchments, streams and areas of biodiversity with

important ecological and cultural values, many of

which are already mapped. It is important that the new

standards take these areas into consideration and these

areas are protected.

• The zone committee promote the compliance of the new

standards by councils and also encourage communities to

work in partnership to ensure that any breaches of the new

standards are reported and recorded.

The BPZC will work with councils to help communicate

information about the new forestry standards and what

it means for landowners and forestry operators on

Banks Peninsula.

It is early days but as more information becomes available

we will help get it out to the community. Please keep your

eye out in local papers over the coming months for more

information about these new forestry requirements.

The zone committee meet every month to discuss water

management issues on Banks Peninsula so come along to

one of our meetings and have your say.

The Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee is a community-led committee

supported by Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury.

Back to the dance at Pigeon Bay

• By Sarla Donovan

THE PIGEON Bay Settlers Hall

is fairly unique among country

halls.

Built on the site of the Pigeon

Bay Inn back in 1921, its sprung

dance floor came from the old

Canterbury Society of Arts

building in Christchurch.

Dance halls with sprung hard

wood floors became common

in the early 20th century, their

spring provided through bending

woven wooden battens.

The flexible floor made it

more comfortable to dance on

and Pigeon Bay Hall went on to

host many memorable balls and

events.

The upcoming mid-winter

dance aims to bring back that

tradition.

Pigeon Bay residents Sandra

and David Innes have fond memories

of the annual balls.

Seventy-six-year-old farmer

Mr Innes is fourth generation

Pigeon Bay, born and bred.

He remembers the Reynish

family - a well-known farming

family in the bay - had enough

sons to provide an entire musical

group.

Known as the Reynish Brothers

Band, they played regularly

at the hall throughout the 1950s

and 1960s.

Two much anticipated annual

events were the Manchester

Unity Lodge Ball and the Plunket

Ball which continued through to

the 1970s, Mrs Innes recalls .

“In the earlier years they were

quite a social event. People came

from Akaroa and all around

the peninsula. In earlier years

they came (by horse and cart)

and later they put on a bus from

Akaroa to Pigeon Bay.”

“There would be 200 people

for a ball,” she said. “It was all

long dresses and black suits,

ball frocks and shawls on snowy

nights. They had big suppers,

plenty of booze flowing and

always a band.”

The hall has also been used as

a Plunket room and a library;

hosted weddings and other community

events.

But the time came when motor

vehicles became widespread and

people could drive to socialise

and eat out. It wasn’t so important

to have the local gatherings

in the bay.

And then the shop and the

school went.

“That made a huge difference

to the Pigeon Bay community;

many families moved away from

the area,” Mrs Innes says.

“it’s through the likes of (dance

organiser Fiona Grace) now who

are trying to get these community

functions back again.”

•The Pigeon Bay Hall

Mid-Winter Dance is on

Saturday, July 21, 6pmmidnight.

Tickets $15

•For the Pigeon Bay

Settlers Hall grand

opening on April 29, 1921

the SS Cygnet sailed

from Lyttelton with 120

passengers, arriving in

time for high tea.

•Residents came from

Akaroa and “every part of

the Peninsula in goodly

numbers.”

•Between 400-500

people attended.

•Arthus Goodwin was the

hall’s committee chair

assisted by J Reynish, H

Bloomquist, V Craw, H

Pettigrew, F Corrigal and

Allan Goodwin. He said in

his speech it was one of

the happiest moments of

his life.

makes a break

early in Sumner’s

match against

Sydenham.

MAY ​

Sumner’s semi-final

hopes washed away

• By Gordon Findlater

THEY MAY have started with

a hiss and a roar, but Sumner

were eventually put to the sword

by Sydenham on Saturday as

the wave’s semi-final hopes were

washed away in the 8-38 defeat.

It was hard to see the game

getting as far away as it did for

Sumner. They jumped out to

an early 8-0 lead at Sydenham

Park and looked to have taken

inspiration from their under-12

sharks team that defeated Sydenham

22-12 earlier in the day.

It took just 5min for winger

Filimoni Waqainabete to break

through a gap on halfway before

putting in Charles Oswald to

score in the left corner. The early

advantage was then extended

just minutes later through a

penalty.

This would be the last time

Sumner would spend a prolonged

period of time in the

Sydenham half.

The hosts stepped up a gear

and quickly found themselves

with a lead two tries to the good

and playing with a one man advantage

after Hayden O’Donnell

was sent to the bin.

“After the loss last week, it was

just about having a swing,” said

coach Martin Dodgson.

“We had a good chance in

their half up 8-0 and, if we score

there, then we put them under a

bit of pressure, but unfortunately

they came down the other end

and got a try.”

The second half was one-way

traffic for Sydenham who regularly

found their way through

Sumner’s defence.

With a semi-final now out

of reach, Sumner will be playing

for pride when they host

Christchurch at St Leonards

Park on Saturday.

SPORTS

Running club takes

13 podium finishes

• By Gordon Findlater

THE SUMNER Running

Club were represented by 42

athletes at the South Island

cross-country championships on

Saturday where they recorded 13

podium finishes.

Runners across junior and senior

grades assembled at the Ascot

golf course at QE II Park in unseasonably

warm conditions to

take on the cross-country course

with distances ranging from

2000m to 9000m.

The Sumner junior contingent

of 28 competed admirably,

taking home five medals. Silver

medals were won by Charlie

Bailey in the boys 13 grade, Lucy

Wheeler in the girls 10 grade

and Abigail Scott-Douglas in the

girls eight grade. Bronze medals

were won by Madeline Sharpe

in the girls 13 grade and Zara

Percasky in the girls eight and

under grade.

The highlight of the senior

racing was a one-two finish for

Sumner in the men’s 40 and over

event. David Fitch was the first

to finish the 9000m race in a

time of 31min 56sec. He was followed

by fellow Sumner runner

Nathan Jones who came home

second in a time of 33min 9sec.

There was also victory for

Graham Batchelor in the men’s

70 and over race. Batchelor completed

the 7000m race in 35min

21sec.

Sumner runners will now turn

their attention to the Canterbury

cross-country championships at

Halswell Quarry on July 21.

Injury time equalizer

nets Bays 1-1 draw

• By Gordon Findlater

A 93RD-MINUTE equaliser

from Chris Murphy saw

Ferrymead Bays hold rivals

Cashmere Technical to a

1-1 draw at Garrick Park on

Saturday.

The late goal was also

crucial to Bays’ chances in the

Southern League. The result

means Bays have two draws two

their name after two rounds

and are two points behind

Technical, Dunedin Technical,

Nomads United and Coastal

Spirit, all on four points.

Their equaliser against the

competition favourites came

SPORTS

from a flicked on header which

the central midfielder ran onto

before putting the ball in the

back of the net.

“I managed to turn a

defender and got a little toepoke

on it. I won’t glorify it too

much, I’ve definitely scored

some better goals in my time,”

said Murphy.

Technical’s opening goal

came in the first half after a shot

from Aaron Clapham hit the

post and sat up for striker Andy

Tuckey to head home.

“That was one of the only

chances they had,” said Bays’

captain Richard Astley.

“We felt we deserved the

point at the end. We really

fronted up and, if anything,

were maybe unlucky not to do

better to get three points.”

Bays will host Selwyn United

in a friendly on Saturday due to

a break in the competition over

the weekend for the Chatham

Cup.

Their next Southern League

match will see them travel

to Dunedin to play Dunedin

Technical on July 22.

EQUALIZER: Chris Murphy scored for Bays in the third-minute of stoppage time to save a draw

SUPER CHARGED: The Electric Avenue team from Redcliffs

School finished third in the EPro8 Challenge final last week.

L-R: Lewis Hollis-Locke, Ruby Love-Smith, Ted Elworthy and

Luca Rose. ​

Creative challenge

for Redcliffs pupils

A COMBINED year 5 and 6

Redcliffs School team faced off

against opponents from across

Canterbury in a contest of

creative problem solving and

engineering skills last week - the

EPro8 Challenge finals.

Challenges included building a

mini-Mars Rover with a working

gear box, or a 1.8m high crane capable

of lifting 1kg of weight and

building a booby trap that would

automatically fire a party popper

when a cookie jar is lifted up.

Team member Edward Elworthy

reported on the day’s events:

My team was called Electric

Avenue. We had to work on four

pin bowling, snail racing, rowing

machine and limbo bar.

This was the grand final so

the challenges were harder than

usual. One of the rules was that it

had to be fit for purpose. For example,

one of the challenges was

to build a bed and solar powered

alarm for Uncle Albert, so you

also had to build a bedside table.

SCHOOLS

My team came third-equal

with Geraldine Primary School,

alias GPS Magic. We tied with

270 points each, 10 points behind

the second-placed Tech Geeks

[Ashburton Borough School]

and winners Kaiapoi North Tech

Knights [Kaiapoi North School.]

It was an extremely stressful

time as the equipment had been

used by 11 teams before us so it

was a bit worn out.

Redcliffs School entered three

teams, including a year 5 team

called Amazonian Sloths, and

a year 6 team, Zombie Warfare,

which came fifth in the grand

final with 240 points.

The challenge was out of the

whole of Canterbury.

I’m very proud of this achievement.

Funny Kid - Prank Wars

by Matt Stanton

‘MY NEW ULTIMATE FAVOURITE BOOK!’

- Lachie, aged 11, on Funny Kid for President

Every kid wants to laugh, but Max is the boy who can make

it happen.

As he and his classmates head off on a camping trip, the new boy,

Tyson, decides to play some jokes of his own.

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

Monsters in the lake, smuggling ducks, dig-your-own toilets, capsizing canoes,

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

things in store for Max and his friends in this brand-new adventure.

For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates, FUNNY KID is the

mega-bestseller from author-illustrator Matt Stanton.

His name fills the streets with fear… In the chilling new crime novel from awardwinning

author Liam McIlvanney, a serial killer stalks the streets of Glasgow and

DI McCormack follows a trail of secrets to uncover the truth…

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

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

He takes his next victim – the third woman from the same nightclub – and dumps

her in the street like rubbish.

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

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

detective from the Highlands, is ordered to join the investigation. But his arrival is

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

how difficult life can be for an outsider.

A killer who hunts in the shadows. When another woman is found murdered in a

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

the dark heart of Glasgow, McCormack follows a trail of secrets that will change

the city – and his life – forever…

have made the difficult decision and decided

to walk away from their earthquake damaged

“Their loss could be your gain”.

The floor plan features an open plan kitchen,

dining, living which interconnects with another

lounge. Sliding doors open out to the expansive

upstairs deck. 5-6 bedrooms on offer with 2

bathrooms and 3 toilets. This north-west facing

home has been built for the views and the sun.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a builder to

renew this as a future family home or even a rental

investment for professionals who will appreciate

the Mt Pleasant and surrounding environment.

Beautifully positioned on the Mt Pleasant hill

to enjoy stunning views of the Southern Alps

and the Kaikoura’s, the Estuary and the Pacific

Ocean. Large outdoor deck to enjoy the view or

sit in the spa pool with a double lockup garage

underneath. The home has two heat pumps to

keep you warm in winter plus a security system

for ‘peace of mind’.
