Fighting to save Redcliffs Park<br />

Since 2<strong>01</strong>6, Chris Doudney and others have been trying to save Redcliffs<br />

Park. Relocating the school to the park has been a contentious subject,<br />

polarising many in Redcliffs. On pages 4-5, we profile Mr Doudney and<br />

report on the latest development in the park saga.<br />

Long wait<br />

over to<br />

build on<br />

Main Rd<br />

waterfront<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

A LONG-AWAITED outcome to<br />

whether people can build in parts<br />

of Redcliffs could have a flow-on<br />

effect for others in the same<br />

situation.<br />

Section owner Wendy Gilchrist<br />

said she was “greatly relieved”<br />

that an independent hearing<br />

panel on Thursday granted her<br />

resource consent to build on a<br />

waterfront site in Main Rd after a<br />

year-long wait.<br />

Following the decision, city<br />

council acting head of resource<br />

consents Andy Christofferson<br />

wrote in a memorandum to<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, the panel’s<br />

ruling would be “valuable in<br />

shaping city council officers<br />

thinking on this matter going<br />

forward.”<br />

It came a day after more<br />

than 100 residents met with<br />

Christchurch Coastal Residents’<br />

United to hear about issues being<br />

faced by coastal property owners<br />

when trying to get resource and<br />

building consents.<br />

The meeting looked at how 1486<br />

sites in a Restricted Unit Overlay<br />

within the High Flood Hazard<br />

Management Area are being<br />

treated by city council planners.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Redcliffs couple world-beaters<br />

In Brief<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

REDCLIFFS COUPLE Ian<br />

Huntsman and Wendy Riach<br />

have won the worlds’s longest<br />

canoe race, beating 20 other<br />

competitors in the Yukon 1000.<br />

Starting at Whitehorse, Canada,<br />

on July 22 it took them six<br />

days, 14hr and 55min to paddle<br />

1600km (1000 miles) along the<br />

Yukon River, finishing at Dalton<br />

Highway Bridge in Alaska.<br />

It’s the second time they’ve<br />

taken out the race, finding victory<br />

in 2<strong>01</strong>4 when they clocked<br />

up the second fastest-ever time<br />

in the history of the race.<br />

Ian is a 51-year-old engineer<br />

who works for Hamilton Jet.<br />

He learned to kayak at age 11<br />

and is a member of the Down<br />

River Kayak Club.<br />

Wendy is 52 and a policewoman.<br />

The pair sent texts to Ian’s<br />

father Alan Huntsman after<br />

the win, saying they were “very<br />

tired” but in good condition.<br />

They said the race was tough<br />

this year with lower river levels,<br />

strong winds and at one point<br />

smoke from forest fires severely<br />

affected visibility for several<br />

hours.<br />

Competitors paddle for 18<br />

hours a day, resting between<br />

11pm and 5am.<br />

CHAMPIONS: Wendy Riach<br />

and Ian Huntsman paddled<br />

1600km down the Yukon River to<br />

win the longest canoe race in the<br />

world. ​<br />

They carry all their food and<br />

equipment with them in the<br />

canoe, setting up camp beside<br />

the river.<br />

Alan said due to time differences<br />

he would stay up late<br />

to check with race organisers<br />

that the pair had got through<br />

the night without any attention<br />

from bears.<br />

“I’m excited, very proud and<br />

very tired,” he told the <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News on Monday.<br />

The pair are due to arrive back<br />

in Christchurch on Friday.<br />

VEHICLE DOWN BANK<br />

Several occupants of a vehicle<br />

which plunged 30m down a bank<br />

about 1am on Sunday morning<br />

were lucky to escape with just<br />

bumps and bruises, Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> Volunteer Fire Brigade chief<br />

fire officer Andrew Norris said.<br />

The vehicle went off the road<br />

on a sharp bend at Windy Point<br />

between Rapaki and Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>, careered through bushes<br />

and stopped upright without<br />

overturning. The occupants were<br />

checked by ambulance officers at<br />

the scene.<br />

Our People<br />

Chris Doudney<br />

Architect behind Redcliffs Park battle<br />

Former architect Chris<br />

Doudney helped<br />

establish Friends of<br />

Redcliffs Park in 2<strong>01</strong>6.<br />

The group has since<br />

been fighting former<br />

Minister of Education<br />

Hekia Parata’s decision<br />

to relocate Redcliffs<br />

School to the park. Sarla<br />

Donovan caught up with<br />

the 77-year-old<br />

Could you tell me a bit about<br />

your early years? Where did<br />

you grow up and go to school?<br />

I was born in Hampton on<br />

the western side of London, and<br />

emigrated with my family on<br />

the Rangitoto in 1950. I grew up<br />

and spent most of my schooling<br />

years in Christchurch. We lived<br />

in Governors <strong>Bay</strong> and I went to<br />

school there and then attended<br />

Christ’s College. After secondary<br />

school I spent 10 years in<br />

Auckland, first at the School of<br />

Architecture and then another<br />

five years working in the city.<br />

Where did you go from<br />

there?<br />

In 1968 I travelled with my<br />

wife and son to England on a<br />

boat called the Aurelia. It was<br />

a 9000 tonne ship of the Italian<br />

Cogedar Line, mainly used to<br />

ship emigrants to Australia. The<br />

return trip carried about 400<br />

discontented Europeans going<br />

back home plus us, so there was<br />

plenty of room on board. We<br />

stopped for a couple of days in<br />

Tahiti, then on to the Panama<br />

Canal, stopping briefly in Cristóbal<br />

and omitting the planned<br />

stop in Curacao. It took about<br />

five weeks and we were starting<br />

to run out of things like milk<br />

by time we got to Southampton.<br />

Our son Kit had his second<br />

birthday on the ship. He had<br />

one of those little plastic wheelie<br />

things with handlebars, a tractor<br />

or a train, and it was very popular<br />

with the passengers. He’d<br />

be doing figure eights across<br />

the deck for hours as the ship<br />

swayed back and fourth.<br />

BATTLER: Chris Doudney has been the Friends of Redcliffs Park chairman for the past two<br />

years.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

How would you describe your<br />

family?<br />

I had a standard family, two<br />

younger brothers and a mum<br />

and dad. Mum stayed at home<br />

in the early years but later taught<br />

German and Italian. Dad was<br />

a sculptor and taught at Ilam<br />

School of Fine Arts. Eric John<br />

Doudney was his name. My<br />

middle brother is an electrical<br />

engineer and the youngest has<br />

done a variety of jobs but currently<br />

runs a gardening and<br />

maintenance business. One<br />

brother lives in Church <strong>Bay</strong> on a<br />

property my parents bought as a<br />

lifestyle farmlet in the 1970s.<br />

What subjects interested you<br />

at school?<br />

I liked art and maths and<br />

physics, but in those days,<br />

they didn’t do physics beyond<br />

the fifth form. I also enjoyed<br />

languages and studied French<br />

for four years, which was useful<br />

for our summers in France. I<br />

loved sailing and boating, but<br />

unfortunately school didn’t have<br />

it so I used to try to get out of<br />

whichever sport they were doing<br />

so I could go sailing. I was<br />

always deeply impressed by the<br />

architecture of Christ’s College<br />

and have very warm memories<br />

of the beautiful library building.<br />

Did you enjoy living in<br />

England?<br />

We loved it, although we had<br />

some hard times living over<br />

there without much money. We<br />

went to Europe most summers,<br />

usually driving and camping,<br />

heading south to sunshine and<br />

beaches. France was good for<br />

that. Another son was born in<br />

London in 1970. We bought a<br />

house in Putney and spent some<br />

years upgrading it.<br />

What brought you back to<br />

New Zealand?<br />

A severe depression in the<br />

United Kingdom design and<br />

construction world in 1977<br />

prompted our return to New<br />

Zealand in <strong>August</strong> 1978. For me,<br />

it was to the position of assistant<br />

chief architect at the Otago<br />

Education Board. We had a lot<br />

of schools being built at that<br />

time, such as High St School in<br />

1982. Numbers were dropping<br />

in rural areas but not in the cities.<br />

We loved Dunedin – we had<br />

an inner city house in Cargill St<br />

and were so close to everything.<br />

It was a very old house built in<br />

1860 and then added to right<br />

through to the 1980s. It’s since<br />

been bowled by a developer. Part<br />

of me wishes we’d held onto it<br />

but we had to sell.<br />

Where did you meet your<br />

wife?<br />

I met Margaret in Auckland.<br />

She’d been a student at the<br />

School of Art in Christchurch<br />

so I’d seen her around a bit.<br />

Then we met up there and after<br />

a few years we got married. She<br />

painted and later taught art at<br />

Auckland Girls’ Grammar before<br />

we moved to London.<br />

And what brought you<br />

back to Christchurch and to<br />

Redcliffs?<br />

I retired from my position<br />

as university architect at the<br />

University of Otago, a fascinating<br />

job which had kept me<br />

interested for 25 years. My son<br />

was here working and so we<br />

bought our house in Redcliffs in<br />

2008. At that stage, it was almost<br />

derelict, but in a good position.<br />

We moved in just a month before<br />

the first quake in 2<strong>01</strong>0. The<br />

house survived but when 2<strong>01</strong>1<br />

came along it was quite badly<br />

damaged, being clad in Oamaru<br />

stone.<br />

When was Friends of<br />

Redcliffs Park formed?<br />

In 2<strong>01</strong>6, a month after the<br />

Ministry of Education decision<br />

to abandon the old school site.<br />

It’s been quite a divisive issue<br />

in the community – have there<br />

been any personal attacks?<br />

Not really. My wife got a<br />

few phone calls while I was in<br />

Europe earlier this year and we<br />

have had eggs thrown at the<br />

house but that was an isolated<br />

incident.<br />

What’s the toughest part of<br />

the fight been?<br />

That we haven’t succeeded.<br />

It’s been very depressing and<br />

tough on my wife to be out there<br />

leading the charge. No one has<br />

been told what the real reason<br />

is. I think there’s someone in<br />

the ministry who is arrogant<br />

and biased and doesn’t want to<br />

take the real evidence on board<br />

and is in a position to sway the<br />

minister.<br />

When do you see yourself<br />

putting this issue to rest and<br />

disbanding the group?<br />

We’ll probably not be able<br />

to go any further than the<br />

hearing of the (Education and<br />

Workforce Select Committee)<br />

next month. Hopefully this<br />

will happen before the school is<br />

demolished, though that is supposed<br />

to happen in <strong>August</strong> too,<br />

so we’ll have to see.<br />

Petition delivered to Parliament<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

A PETITION asking that<br />

Redcliffs School return to its<br />

former Main Rd site has been<br />

delivered to Parliament.<br />

Christchurch Central Labour<br />

MP Duncan Webb presented the<br />

200-signature petition on behalf<br />

of Friends of Redcliffs Park last<br />

week.<br />

The petition has been referred<br />

to the Education and Workforce<br />

Select Committee to consider<br />

when it meets in <strong>August</strong>.<br />

It calls for urgent legislation<br />

enabling the school<br />

to reopen on the<br />

former Main Rd<br />

site and to spare it<br />

from being demolished.<br />

Friends of<br />

Duncan<br />

Webb<br />

Redcliffs Park<br />

spokesman Chris<br />

Doudney said he<br />

was hopeful the select committee<br />

would consider the petition<br />

“before they demolish the<br />

school.”<br />

Demolition work is expected<br />

to commence in late <strong>August</strong>.<br />

Mr Doudney said the committee<br />

was able to bring findings<br />

to Parliament to be debated and<br />

potentially acted upon.<br />

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth<br />

Dyson was not asked to take the<br />

petition because she had indicated<br />

since 2<strong>01</strong>6 that the school’s<br />

H. C. Cairns – I write in<br />

support of returning Redcliffs<br />

School to its original site<br />

on Main Rd. Redcliffs Park<br />

is totally unsuitable for the<br />

school to be built for the<br />

many reasons already given<br />

in previous correspondence<br />

from other people – prone<br />

to flooding, smaller than the<br />

original site, threat of tsunamis,<br />

objections from householders<br />

adjacent to the park, traffic<br />

problems etc. It would be much<br />

simpler and cheaper to move<br />

the existing buildings on the<br />

CONTROVERSIAL: Redcliffs Park where Redcliffs School will be relocated.<br />

shift to Redcliffs Park was a<br />

“done deal”, said Mr Doudney.<br />

He also said Port Hills National<br />

list MP Nuk Korako was not<br />

asked because he had been a<br />

“strong proponent of the new<br />

school,” and Port Hills Green<br />

list MP Eugenie Sage wasn’t well<br />

known to Friends of Redcliffs<br />

Park.<br />

Meanwhile, clearance activity<br />

at Redcliffs Park has halted as<br />

archaeological work takes place.<br />

main site forward and have<br />

Jenny and<br />

Bernie Godden –<br />

It is nearly 20 years<br />

since my wife and<br />

I drove through<br />

Redcliffs en route to<br />

Sumner during our first trip to<br />

New Zealand from the United<br />

Kingdom. Do you know what<br />

Ministry of Education head of<br />

education infrastructure service<br />

Kim Shannon said clearance<br />

had stopped in the middle of last<br />

week as a specialist team is on<br />

site undertaking archaeological<br />

investigations.<br />

The area is of particular<br />

archaeological interest, as it was<br />

the site of some of the earliest<br />

known occupation of the South<br />

Island by Māori. Areas of interest<br />

are being excavated by hand,<br />

still sticks in our minds? Yes, the<br />

Redcliffs School buildings. They<br />

ranked among the<br />

finest of Christchurch<br />

buildings,<br />

even before the<br />

earthquake.<br />

Over the years,<br />

we have been<br />

impressed by this<br />

country’s regard<br />

for its heritage. So<br />

you can imagine<br />

our shock when, as recent residents<br />

of Sumner, we look on at<br />

the destruction of this beautiful<br />

Ms Shannon said. “This will<br />

ensure any historic material is<br />

recovered, catalogued and recorded<br />

and that the construction<br />

of the new school is not delayed.”<br />

Information regarding the<br />

inhabitation of the area and any<br />

artefacts recovered will be published<br />

by Heritage New Zealand<br />

once it is complete.<br />

Ms Shannon said the research<br />

had been planned from the outset<br />

of the project.<br />

Readers respond to the ongoing saga in Redcliffs<br />

asset. We ask ourselves “why?”<br />

We have not met a single resident<br />

who supports this bizarre<br />

scheme. Who is responsible for<br />

this decision? The motive? It<br />

must be financial. Surely that is<br />

the only possible answer? So who<br />

stands to gain? Mmm.<br />

We plead that those who have<br />

made this decision search deep<br />

into their souls and ask: “Is this<br />

the right way, or will I forever<br />

have this act of destruction on<br />

my mind?” Heritage lost forever,<br />

lost to the next generation, and<br />

the next . . . oh, dear. Gone.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News asked<br />

local politicians what they<br />

thought about the move to<br />

Redcliffs Park and if they<br />

supported the petition<br />

•Labour MP for Port<br />

Hills Ruth Dyson said the<br />

decision to<br />

build the new<br />

school on the<br />

Redcliffs Park<br />

site “has been<br />

made.” She<br />

said the board<br />

and school<br />

community<br />

supported<br />

that decision because it<br />

Ruth<br />

Dyson<br />

would get the school back<br />

to Redcliffs “up to two<br />

years earlier” than if the<br />

matter was reconsidered.<br />

“It is the legitimate right<br />

of anyone to petition<br />

Parliament and the petition<br />

has now been referred<br />

to a select committee for<br />

its consideration. I look<br />

forward to the consideration<br />

and recommendations of<br />

the select committee,” Ms<br />

Dyson said.<br />

•National list MP for Port<br />

Hills Nuk Korako supported<br />

the relocation of the school<br />

away from the Main Rd<br />

site because<br />

“we couldn’t<br />

guarantee<br />

safety.” A report<br />

commissioned<br />

by the Ministry<br />

of Education<br />

indicated it<br />

would never<br />

be possible<br />

to provide<br />

an absolute guarantee<br />

of safety against the<br />

Nuk<br />

Korako<br />

risk of rockfall. However,<br />

Mr Korako said he had<br />

supported Barnett Park<br />

rather than Redcliffs Park as<br />

an alternative site, as it was<br />

less at risk from flooding or<br />

tsunami. He said he did not<br />

support the petition.<br />

Long wait over to<br />

•From page 1<br />

Most of the sites are in<br />

Redcliffs, South Brighton<br />

and Southshore.<br />

CCRU says a restricted<br />

discretionary activity<br />

rule for properties<br />

inside the RUO – a rule<br />

recommended by the<br />

Replacement District Plan<br />

independent hearings panel<br />

– was altered when the<br />

plan was implemented last<br />

year, and people wanting<br />

to build or extend are now<br />

getting into difficulty with<br />

city council planners.<br />

“The final city council<br />

produced hearing<br />

documents omitted the<br />

key paragraph that made<br />

the RUO effective,” CCRU<br />

chairman Simon Watts<br />

said at the meeting.<br />

However, yesterday the<br />

city council rebutted Mr<br />

Watts’ claim.<br />

Said city council head<br />

of planning and strategic<br />

transport David Griffiths:<br />

“The Christchurch District<br />

Plan contains the restricted<br />

discretionary activity<br />

rule . . . as decided by the<br />

Independent Hearings<br />

Panel in their Decision 53.”<br />

However, Linwood-<br />

Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board<br />

member Darrell Latham is<br />

backing the CCRU view on<br />

the issue.<br />

He said by omitting the<br />

“activating clause” relating<br />

to the RUO, the city<br />

council had made building<br />

within the Southshore<br />

and Redcliffs HFHMA<br />

prohibitive.<br />

“They have not in good<br />

faith followed the intent of<br />

the independent hearings<br />

panel recommendations<br />

and this must be a cause<br />

for serious concern,’’ Dr<br />

Latham said.<br />

Question marks remain<br />

over whether owners will<br />

be able to build within<br />

the RUO – a subset of<br />

more than 1400 properties<br />

where the hazard is from<br />

sea level rise, not river<br />

breaches – after the hearing<br />

panel said Mrs Gilchrist’s<br />

consent was an exception<br />

and “cannot in any way<br />

create a planning precedent<br />

for applications on sites<br />

in other parts of the<br />

Residential Unit Overlay.”<br />

Last month Labour MPs<br />

Ruth Dyson, Duncan<br />

Webb and Poto Williams<br />

met with members of<br />

CCRU and Dr Latham to<br />

discuss the problem and a<br />

potential remedy.<br />

Ms Dyson said after that<br />

meeting they had agreed to<br />

do further investigations<br />

before making a decision<br />

on “what intervention,<br />

if any, is necessary or<br />

appropriate.”<br />

Dr Latham told<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

yesterday he wanted<br />

Greater Christchurch<br />

Regeneration Minister<br />

Megan Woods to use<br />

her powers under the<br />

Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Act to fast track changes to<br />

the city’s district plan.<br />

Akaroa is<br />

becoming<br />

increasingly<br />

popular with<br />

cruise ships. ​<br />

Akaroa rates highly<br />

with cruise ship visitors<br />

PICTURESQUE Akaroa<br />

has been named among<br />

New Zealand and<br />

Australia’s top-three cruise<br />

destinations in the annual<br />

TripAdvisor Cruise Critic<br />

Cruisers’ Choice Awards.<br />

It sees Akaroa voted<br />

ahead of all other New<br />

Zealand cruise destinations<br />

for the 2<strong>01</strong>7-2<strong>01</strong>8 season,<br />

taking out third place<br />

in the passenger reviewrating<br />

based awards.<br />

“This award shows that<br />

visitors are clearly enjoying<br />

the wonderfully warm<br />

Akaroa visitor experience<br />

and that’s a big credit to<br />

the Akaroa community,”<br />

said ChristchurchNZ destination<br />

manager Caroline<br />

Blanchfield.<br />

“Akaroa has stepped up<br />

to take on the lion’s share<br />

of Christchurch and Canterbury’s<br />

cruise destination<br />

since the Christchurch<br />

earthquakes, which has<br />

been great for the village,<br />

in spite of the added strain<br />

on the infrastructure<br />

there,” she said.<br />

Akaroa, Tauranga<br />

and Wellington were<br />

named in the top-five of<br />

the Top Rated Australia<br />

and New Zealand Cruise<br />

Destinations category,<br />

with Sydney taking first<br />

place.<br />

Ms Blanchfield said the<br />

impact of cruise ships<br />

visiting Canterbury ports<br />

had positive benefits for the<br />

regional economy.<br />

“Close to 50 per cent of<br />

cruise passengers return<br />

to a cruise destination<br />

they enjoyed for a longer<br />

holiday,” she said.<br />

The backstory of<br />

T he A natomy of M elancholy • P art i: I dentity<br />

by<br />

Simon van der Sluijs<br />

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.<br />

**Identity: the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.<br />

I have always been fascinated by trying to visualise human nature, who are we, what<br />

drives us, what moves us, and my personal experiences were more than enough to<br />

explore. A trilogy to allow myself to create a deeper narrative to be more universal<br />

and existential rather than being just about me. I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’<br />

because I feel that it best represents my work and the person I am. Part 1 is about<br />

identity because to me it is the source of melancholy and so that is where the trilogy<br />

needs to start. It shows drawings, paintings and small objects.<br />

Generally the work on show deals with the desire to belong, to be allowed to be, through<br />

confirmation of our fellow beings, and of getting damaged in the process.<br />

There are two separate sections within the exhibition: ‘Little Sorrows’ and ‘Intimacies’<br />

Little Sorrows<br />

Our pets contribute to our identity. Inevitably having a pet also means that the day will<br />

come we have to farewell it ‘Little Sorrows’ is what can happen when we can’t let go<br />

and try to either recreate the friend we were so fond of or make an effort in taxidermy<br />

to preserve through small paintings of mice, hamsters and goldfish and faux taxidermy<br />

objects, mainly in ‘museum boxes’ and under bell jars.<br />

Intimacies (Explicit content)<br />

Sexual identity is the way we think of ourselves in relationship to whom we are<br />

romantically or sexually attracted to. Growing up in a Catholic environment sexuality was<br />

definitely not a topic of discussion or acknowledged as an important part of being. This is<br />

the reason I have made these paintings so small, they fit in a locket and can therefore be<br />

‘locked away’ only to be enjoyed in a private atmosphere.<br />

Part 1 Identity <strong>August</strong> 2<strong>01</strong>8, Part 2 Dissectum April 2<strong>01</strong>9 and Part 3 Lost and Found<br />

November 2<strong>01</strong>9. All shown at Little River Gallery.<br />

MEET ouR TEAM...<br />

MT PLEASANT costume<br />

designer Tina Hutchison-<br />

Thomas is a finalist in this year’s<br />

World of Wearable Art Awards.<br />

It’s the second time she’s<br />

entered the long-running event<br />

after her initial foray last year<br />

– a futuristic ball gown called<br />

Geogami – catapulted into the<br />

avant-garde section finals.<br />

The former Court Theatre designer,<br />

who now works freelance<br />

from her home workshop, admits<br />

WOW is highly contagious.<br />

“Once you see your costume<br />

up on stage brought to life, you<br />

want to keep going and designing<br />

more. It’s a big buzz.”<br />

While she can’t give many<br />

details about this year’s costume,<br />

Ms Hutchison-Thomas says it’s<br />

based around hand dyed fabric<br />

– and she hints the fabric “isn’t<br />

something you would usually<br />

hand dye.”<br />

It also has 3000 rhinestones<br />

bedazzling it, each individually<br />

glued on.<br />

The idea for the costume came<br />

from the natural world.<br />

“I love it when you go close up<br />

on a moth or butterfly; the scales<br />

are incredible. So that was my<br />

inspiration.”<br />

She confesses the design has<br />

been time-consuming to make,<br />

with around 150 hours spent pattern<br />

making, sewing and decorating<br />

on top of her paid work.<br />

“There have been some long<br />

work days.”<br />

Coming from a more traditional<br />

sewing background, she<br />

had never thought of herself as<br />

creative enough to enter WOW.<br />

“I’ve always been a very traditional<br />

costumier and I never<br />

thought I was arty enough but<br />

there was a window of opportunity<br />

last year and I just thought<br />

why not, I’ll give it a go . . . and<br />

because it’s so highly addictive, I<br />

wanted to do it again.<br />

“I took all my family last year<br />

as a surprise: my husband and<br />

three kids, my parents and my<br />

aunt and my sister all came up.<br />

They’re doing it again this year<br />

and I’ve got my husband’s parents<br />

to come too.”<br />

Following many years as a<br />

costume designer and technician<br />

for the Court Theatre,<br />

Ms Hutchison-Thomas left to<br />

become a freelancer a couple of<br />

years ago.<br />

planting at Orton<br />

Bradley Park<br />

TREES FOR Canterbury will<br />

plant more than 400 natives at<br />

Orton Bradley Park on Sunday.<br />

The annual planting day is<br />

part of an ongoing community<br />

re-vegetation and biodiversity<br />

enhancement project at the park,<br />

which was gifted to the New Zealand<br />

public by Orton Bradley on<br />

his death in 1943 “for the benefit<br />

and enjoyment of the people.”<br />

Thousands of plants, grown<br />

by non-profit group Trees For<br />

Canterbury from locally-sourced<br />

seeds, have been added to the<br />

established collection of mature<br />

trees in the park over the past few<br />

years.<br />

Trees For Canterbury manager<br />

Steve Bush said winter was the<br />

best time for planting as there<br />

was good moisture in the soil and<br />

it gave seedlings the best possible<br />

start. “It’s a great time for families<br />

to get together and the children<br />

are all part of it. Last year we had<br />

three-year-olds out planting with<br />

their families. They’ll come back<br />

in years to come and be able to<br />

say ‘we helped with this.’”<br />

Orton Bradley Park is in<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> at the southern end<br />

of Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>. Signs will<br />

guide people to the planting areas<br />

be out from 10am on Sunday.<br />

AN EXHIBITION of<br />

works by senior pupils from<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> School was<br />

influenced by the life and art of<br />

impressionist painter Margaret<br />

Stoddart.<br />

The pupils visited Stoddart<br />

Cottage, birthplace of the wellknown<br />

New Zealand impressionist<br />

painter.<br />

They learned about her<br />

life and times, the Stoddart<br />

family and about<br />

impressionism.<br />

Their mission was to create<br />

an artwork that responded to<br />

what they saw on their visit<br />

or to use their imagination to<br />

create art which was influenced<br />

in some way by Ms Stoddart’s<br />

work.<br />

She spent her early childhood<br />

in Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> among<br />

landscapes which later inspired<br />

some of her best known paintings.<br />

The resulting works from<br />

these young artists will be<br />

on show at Stoddart Cottage<br />

Gallery throughout <strong>August</strong>.<br />

The gallery is open 10am<br />

to 4pm every Friday, Saturday<br />

and Sunday, and public<br />

holidays.<br />

Works will be for sale and<br />

handmade products by members<br />

of a local art and craft cooperative<br />

are also for sale at the<br />

gallery.<br />

Margaret Stoddart’s paintings<br />

are held in public and private<br />

collections throughout New<br />

Zealand and abroad.<br />

Over 40 are held at the<br />

Christchurch Art Gallery Te<br />

Puna o Waiwhetu and there<br />

are also Stoddart works in the<br />

collection of the Canterbury<br />

Museum.<br />

300-game milestone for Murphy<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

ALMOST 15 years after making<br />

his debut for Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s’<br />

first team at just 17, central<br />

midfielder Chris Murphy<br />

became the club’s first player to<br />

reach 300 appearances.<br />

Murphy, 31, was recognised for<br />

the achievement following <strong>Bay</strong>s’<br />

1-1 draw with Nelson Suburbs on<br />

Sunday.<br />

“I wasn’t actually aware, I<br />

knew I was close but it came as a<br />

surprise,” said Murphy.<br />

A number of Murphy’s old<br />

teammates and coaches appeared<br />

at <strong>Bay</strong>s’ after-match<br />

function to help him celebrate<br />

the milestone.<br />

“We were pretty frustrated<br />

with the result so it was a happy<br />

moment to go with a frustrated<br />

one.”<br />

Murphy has been a one club<br />

man since moving to Sumner<br />

with his family from Ireland at<br />

14. At first he combined weekend<br />

football for Shirley Boys’ High<br />

School’s first XI with club duties.<br />

“As a young kid you can get<br />

away with two games in a day.<br />

I don’t think the body would<br />

get away with that now,” said<br />

Murphy.<br />

When he cracked the first<br />

team Murphy spent two seasons<br />

playing with his father Neil who<br />

was a striker for <strong>Bay</strong>s.<br />

“I did the dirty work and<br />

hoofed it up front and hoped<br />

he’d finish it off. Often he<br />

MILESTONE: One club man Chris Murphy (with ball) has now played 300 games for <strong>Bay</strong>s’ first<br />

team.<br />

didn’t,” said Murphy.<br />

Remaining at one club for<br />

almost two decades is a rarity<br />

these days, and Murphy recognises<br />

that things could easily<br />

have panned out differently if it<br />

wasn’t for the attachment he has<br />

felt towards the club.<br />

“I used to get asked by various<br />

clubs each year to leave, but it’s<br />

just always been a bunch of my<br />

mates that have been here . . .<br />

When you’re winning it always<br />

helps as well,” said Murphy.<br />

“It may have been different<br />

if we hadn’t been up there but<br />

we’ve always been up and around<br />

the top.”<br />

Murphy says the highlights<br />

of his <strong>Bay</strong>s’ career are the four<br />

Mainland Premier League titles<br />

he has helped the team win.<br />

He says that last year’s title<br />

was made more rewarding by<br />

overcoming old rivals Cashmere<br />

Technical in a title race which<br />

went to the final round.<br />

“They’ve always been the<br />

big rivals right from playing at<br />

under-15 level, when they would<br />

SPORTS<br />

have been Woolston Technical,<br />

right through until now. That<br />

will never go away and obviously<br />

we’ve got Coastal Spirit now<br />

who are bringing some noise to<br />

the party and doing quite well,<br />

but the big one has always been<br />

Tech.”<br />

Murphy has also spent the<br />

last 10 years coaching <strong>Bay</strong>s’<br />

youth teams. He’s now reached<br />

a point in his career where Mika<br />

Rabuka – a player he coached at<br />

under-13 level – has joined him<br />

in the first team. Murphy says<br />

it won’t be long until he’s joined<br />

by more players he has coached,<br />

with Canterbury United youth<br />

player Tyler Mounty pipped to be<br />

the next.<br />

As for how his own first team<br />

plans, Murphy can’t see his days<br />

at premier level finishing anytime<br />

soon. Four hundred may be<br />

on the cards.<br />

“If I can stay injury-free I’d<br />

like to think I could go for another<br />

five years.”<br />

Murphy’s next chance to add<br />

another cap and begin his journey<br />

to an even bigger milestone<br />

comes next Saturday when <strong>Bay</strong>s<br />

travel to Cuthberts Green to take<br />

on Coastal Spirit in the Southern<br />

floor offers excellent flexibility for families<br />

and ensures you can cater to any occasion<br />

while four bedrooms are serviced by two<br />

bathrooms, the master with an ensuite, walk-in<br />

wardrobe and outdoor access. The practicality<br />

of bedrooms and bathrooms on both levels<br />

widens the appeal with every room having<br />

their own views.<br />

Further notable features include a double<br />

garage with over-height doors, ample offstreet<br />

parking, under-deck storage, network<br />

wiring throughout, outdoor speakers, security<br />

cameras and secure boat or caravan parking.<br />

Proximity to the waterfront and various<br />

restaurants and amenities including in-zone Mt<br />

Pleasant School (Decile 10) assures convenience<br />

and underpins your investment, while you’ll<br />

feel peacefully removed from the bustle, you’re<br />

only a 15-minute drive from the central city.<br />

Intimate sea views, an admired address and<br />

ease of living are offered at this immaculate<br />

and elegantly styled residence which is sure to<br />

attract your attention with all that the Port Hills<br />

has to offer right on your back door.<br />

The home is warmed by a gas fire which is<br />

complemented by under-tile heating, ducted<br />

air conditioning but most likely only required<br />

to cool this incredibly warm and special home.<br />

Only available due to owners of 24 years<br />

undergoing a total lifestyle change.<br />

This has to be one of our best offerings to<br />

date so don’t just take our word for it as this<br />

will not last. This property is up for auction on<br />

the 16th <strong>August</strong> but may be sold prior as our<br />

owners have purchased. Immediate viewing is<br />

recommended.<br />

Open Homes – Wednesdays 5-6pm,<br />

Saturdays and Sundays 2-3pm.<br />

See you at the open homes or for a private<br />

viewing or for more information contact<br />
