DIAMOND Harbour Church

youth group member Zara

Graham took this photo of the

harbour after a workshop with

professional photographers.

During the school holidays,

you might have noticed 10

fledgling photographers from

the youth group snapping

portraits, landscapes and

other creative shots using rock

towers, splashing water and

spider webs.

Diamond Harbour professional

photographers Kerri-

Ann Cameron and Kirsten

Aldridge ran a holiday workshop

with the teens, teaching

them how to use their digital

SLR cameras on some of the

more advanced manual settings

and providing an introduction

to the theory of light and photographic

composition.

Taking advantage of the sunshine,

the group spent time in

Morgan’s Gully and Diamond

Harbour beach, practising

their new skills. Ms Aldridge

said it was fantastic to see how

engaged and enthusiastic the

students were.

“I was particularly delighted

to see that many of them went

home and kept practising their

skills.”

Lucky

escape

after crash

down 5m

bank in

Rapaki

THE OCCUPANTS of a small

four-wheel drive were lucky

to walk away without injuries

after their vehicle slid on ice and

rolled 5m down a bank near the

settlement of Rapaki on Thursday

morning.

The accident happened between

7.30am and 8am on Governors

Bay Rd between Lyttelton and

Governors Bay.

Police, ambulance and the Lyttelton

fire brigade attended.

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade

chief fire officer Mark Buckley

said when the car rolled over the

bank, it landed on its side on large

“springy” bushes, which saved it

from travelling any further down

the hill.

Mr Buckley said while the two

female occupants did not sustain

any injuries, they were transported

to Christchurch Hospital

to be checked.

He said they were lucky the car

had not rolled further down the

hill.

The vehicle sustained some

damage, but “not a heck of a lot in

comparison to what you thought

it might have,” said Mr Buckley.

THOUSANDS UPON thousands of

Cantabrians would have had an Ice Cream

Charlie over the decades.

I remember my father taking us kids to

the one in Lichfield St and then to other

locations when it moved around the central

city. The taste has never changed.

Today on page 7, we pay tribute to Ken Barnes, the city’s third

Ice Cream Charlie, who passed away recently aged 94.

Reporter Bridget Rutherford spoke to Ken’s daughter, Pam

Richardson, who is the Banks Peninsula Community Board

chairwoman.

Pam said he worked long hours in the iconic Vanilla Ices

cart, and also was very active with the Lions Club of South

Christchurch over the years. And he had a saying: The customer

is king. Not wrong there.

Clock tower danger warning

PEOPLE attempting to

break into the earthquakedamaged

Scarborough clock

tower are putting themselves

in a potentially dangerous

situation, the city council is

warning.

The heritage clock tower

is currently surrounded by

scaffolding and has fencing

around it, but that has not

stopped some people from

trying to gain entry.

“The reason why the

clock tower is fenced off is

because we’ve had engineers

working to determine how

much damage it sustained

in the earthquakes and what

needs to be done to fix it,’’

said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge.

“The assessment shows while

the clock tower is structurally

sound, it requires extensive

repairs. Some of the surface

masonry is loose and could

fall off if we got another strong

quake.

“It is not safe for the public

to be in the clock tower which

is why we have got it fenced off.

Our concern is that if someone

does try to break in while

the repair work is under way,

they could find themselves

in a potentially dangerous

situation,’’ Mr Rutledge

said.

The repairs to the clock

tower are likely to take

several more months to

complete and will involve

removing all the clock faces

so they can be restored by

specialists.

The scaffolding on the

Scarborough tower was

installed in March and is

costing $280 a week.

It is believed to be the first

time the clock faces have been

restored since being built in

the 1930s.

People have also tried to

gain entry to New Brighton’s

damaged clock tower.

DANGEROUS: People

trying to gain entry to clock

towers at Scarborough and

200 sign to save Redcliffs Park

Plan to send

petition to

Parliament

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEARLY 200 signatures have

been collected in a bid to return

Redcliffs School to its former

Main Rd site.

The electronic petition, organised

by Friends of Redcliffs

Park, closed on

Monday and is

planned to be

presented to

Parliament.

It calls for

urgent legislation

enabling

Chris

Doudney

the school to

reopen on its

former Main Rd

site and to spare Redcliffs Park

and Redcliffs School from being

demolished.

But the Ministry of Education

confirmed demolition at

Redcliffs Park began earlier this

month and is expected to be

completed early next month.

The table tennis hall and

toilets are being demolished and

the playground is to be dismantled

for relocation.

The tender for the Redcliffs

School demolition closes next

Friday, and work is expected to

commence later next month.

Friends of Redcliffs Park

spokesman Chris Doudney said

the next step will be arranging

for a MP to take the petition to

Parliament.

“The unfortunate thing of

course is the Ministry of Education

demolished the community

pavilion, which the city council

was going to put $100,000 for

us to restore for the local community,”

he said.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

GONE: The community pavilion at Redcliffs Park was

Mr Doudney described it as

Long walk alone

failed to see a message scrawled

Said Senior Constable Johnson:

“Luckily a lady driving along the

Summit Rd saw this guy walking

about 5.30pm and stopped. He

said his mates were coming to

pick him up and she thought it

was a bit odd so she notified the

police and we put two and two

together.”

The friends were reunited after

they followed the police vehicle

to their lost companion trudging

along the roadside.

The incident was a good reminder

to wait for your friends

if you got separated rather than

wandering off, Senior Constable

Johnson said.

AT WORK: Ken Barnes working in an early Vanilla Ices cart. ​

Ice Cream Charlie

farewelled;

legacy lives on

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CUSTOMER is king.

That was one of the lessons

Ken Barnes taught his

children when they helped

him man his iconic ice

cream stall, Vanilla Ices.

Mr Barnes was the city’s

third Ice Cream Charlie,

running the Christchurch

institution for years when

it was based on Lichfield

St, behind Farmers, and

later in its current

location at Victoria

Square.

He passed away

on July 15 at

Anthony Wilding

Hospital. He was

94.

Mr Barnes, who

was trained as a

fitter and turner,

was also heavily involved

in the Lions

Club of Christchurch

South for

more than 20 years.

Daughter Pam Richardson,

who is the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board’s chairwoman, said

her father was a special

man who loved his job.

“He loved serving

customers chatting away

to them listening to their

stories of where they came

from.”

Mrs Richardson said he

worked long days.

Pam

Richardson

“As youngsters we spent

many hours standing on a

box beside the cart washing

and drying glasses or

inside standing beside father

collecting the money

and giving the change.

We learnt to look after the

customer – the customer

was king,” she said.

“Look after the customer

and he will return time

and time again. And they

did for their weekly treat

– a dish of ice

cream with raspberry

topping all

made at home

in the factory in

Clarkson Ave.”

The first Ice

Cream Charlie

was Sali Mahomet,

who set up a

cart in Cathedral

Square in 1903.

When Mr

Mahomet died in

1943, Vic Wilkinson, who

ran Vanilla Ices, was given

the name.

Mr Wilkinson owned

a dairy farm and used

the milk to make his ice

cream.

Then his daughter Joan

married Mr Barnes, who

grew up in Cheviot, and

they started running the

cart, with the help of Mr

Wilkinson. Their son Max

later took over later.

Mr Barnes’ funeral was

Barnes used when he owned the business.

held on Monday at St Augustine’s

Anglican Church

in Cashmere.

Mrs Richardson said

people travelled from all

over town to get an ice

cream from the cart at the

end of the week.

“Victoria Square, the latest

of his [Mr Barnes] sites,

was an amazing setting for

an ice cream cart.”

Lions Club of Christchurch

South secretary and

friend Barry Scott said Mr

Barnes was an honest and

clever gentleman.

He was the convener of

the annual magic show and

part of the Santa’s Workshop

team that built toys to

donate at Christmas.

“Any working bee

through the Lions, Ken

would be there, and he

would be there with his

basket and his coffee. He

always had enough for

himself and anyone else

there.”

Mr Scott said Mr

Barnes and his late wife

Joan attended most Lions

events.

“When we asked him

what was in his ice cream,

he would say ‘I’m not telling

you that’. That was his

life there for quite a few

years,” Mr Scott said.

“He was certainly a

magician when it came to

dishing out the ice cream.”

Vanilla Ices has been

owned by George and

Raewyn Taylor since 1999.

Mrs Taylor said she had

heard Mr Barnes passed

away, but did not know

him personally.

Mr Barnes is survived

by his children Pam, Max

and Lynne, along with his

grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.

Akaroa firefighters

turn out to

smoking chimneys

• By Sarla Donovan

THE AKAROA Volunteer Fire

Brigade has been called to two

chimney fires in Duvauchelle over

the past week.

An elderly woman phoned

the brigade at about 8.30am on

Monday morning when her house

filled with smoke. The woman had

begun lighting her woodburner

when smoke began billowing out.

Chief fire officer Mark Thomson

said the woman had done “all the

right things” by closing doors and

going outside.

The brigade took 10min to arrive

and there was no damage to the

house, however the house needed

to be ventilated.

Mr Thomson said the chimney

was clean and the cause was

likely to be atmospheric conditions

causing a back draft to blow back

down.

A similar situation triggered a

call out to the Duvauchelle Hotel

last week. Smoke detectors were

triggered when the fire was lit and

smoke filled the room.

“I think what happens is when

they turn the Xpelair on in the

kitchen, if they don’t have a

window open it sucks the smoke

back down the chimney,” said Mr

Thomson.

By the time the brigade arrived

the smoke had already been cleared.

Satellites pinpoint 8000 springs

• By Stacey Bryan

RESEARCHERS HAVE used

satellite imagery to discover

more than 8000 springs on

Banks Peninsula – far more

than the 42 previously recorded.

The communities of Banks

Peninsula are completely

reliant on rain

water, which is

absorbed into

the ground and

comes to the

surface at the

springs.

Canterbury

Fiona Nicol

University

lecturer Sam

Hampton presented his research

on the hydrogeology of the peninsula

in Lyttelton last week.

Dr Hampton worked with a

team of students from Frontiers

Abroad Aotearoa and other

university scientists, mapping

the geology and hydrology of

the peninsula.

Environment Canterbury

had previously mapped only

42 springs in the area, but

the local community always

thought there were a lot more

than that.

ECan’s chief scientist Tim

Davie said Dr Hampton’s

research had substantially

improved their understanding

of water sources on Banks

Peninsula.

His findings gave a “better

idea of how to protect water

quality in the source area of

the spring water so that we can

maintain really good water

quality for Banks Peninsula.”

As well as coming up with

an accurate map of springs,

the researchers also found that

springs located in forested areas

had higher flow rates than those

in grassy areas, and suggested

ways to improve and protect

spring water sources.

The springs are fed by rain

water and Dr Hampton said

where there was more forest

cover, there seemed to be more

precipitation and therefore more

recharge.

“What we’re potentially seeing

here is [that] deforestation has

had a massive influence in terms

of the flow rate and output of

the springs.”

Given the findings, Dr

Hampton said springs could be

a secure, good-quality source of

chairman John

Taylor writes

about its 25th

anniversary

celebration next month

THE SUMNER Ferrymead

Foundation will celebrate its

25th anniversary next month

and look back on the financial

contributions it has made to

many groups and individuals

within our community.

Since its launch in 1993,

many have benefited, including

donations for education, music,

youth, arts and entertainment,

the environment, health

and welfare, and sport and

COMMUNITY: Francesca Beaton, Ray Steele, Denny

Richardson, Felicity Backhouse, Daryl Sayer and Seb Johnson. ​

recreation.

Funds are derived from returns

on invested funds which

are held in perpetuity and, after

considering an application,

the trustees make donations

within the “catchment area”.

Donations have been made towards

rebuilding the Mt Pleasant

Community Centre, the Heathcote

and Mt Pleasant school

pools, the Sumner Lifeboat

Institution, the Sumner Theatre

Group and Sumner Bridge Club,

the hockey, yacht and cricket

clubs, and numerous students.

Last year some representatives

of groups and individuals who

had recently received assistance

met with trustees. Seb Johnson,

who represented New Zealand at

the world surf lifesaving champs,

Francesca Beaton, a student who

attended an Otago University

summer research programme,

the Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade,

the Sumner Cricket Club’s

Ray Steele, Sumner and Redcliffs

libraries’ Denny Richardson and

Felicity Backhouse all used donations

to purchase equipment

and materials.

The objectives of the foundation

are to support and enhance

the community for the future

and this is made possible by the

generous donations or bequests

from groups and individuals.

Readers respond to an

article on Birdlings Flat

residents opposing the

city council’s plans to

replace 90 per cent of the

streetlight network with

brighter blue/white LED

lights within the next three

years

Ian Orchard – The city

council needs a wake-up call –

blue-white LEDs are the wrong

colour for street lights. The excessive

blue component disrupts

melatonin and sleep patterns

and creates unnecessary glare for

motorists. It is also possible that

they actually use more electricity

than the sodium lamps they

are replacing (haven’t checked

this, hopefully they have). If the

majority of ratepayers don’t want

(LED lights) to protect their dark

skies, it can be a big saving in

electricity and installation and

maintenance costs.

Frances Malcolm – We live

in Birdlings Flat and love the

natural feel of it here. We love

how dark it is at night, especially

when we get a clear night and

can see all the stars and also

hear the waves crashing down

STAR-GAZING: The Milky Way

over Birdlings Flat, where the

majority of residents want to

see less street lighting.

the beach. We would be very sad

to lose this unique feel through

the addition of street lighting.

As can be seen already, the

bright amber street lights down

the southern end of Birdlings

Flat do not enhance the natural

surroundings, but rather make

that end of the village feel less

in tune with nature and less

attractive. I am hugely in support

of preserving our dark sky

zone with no lighting in most

places here. However, if there is a

need for lighting in more public

zones like the playground/carpark/community

centre area, I

would like to see the lighting be

a means to enhance and attract

people to the area, but not impose

on the dark sky zone. Low

boulevard-style lighting like they

have in Tekapo would be much

better than tall street lights.

Kathy Kise – The dark skies

of Birdlings Flat is one of the

many reasons why my family

and I moved to Birdlings Flat.

This “place” provides a more

natural experience while living

amidst our natural world under

threat. What we have at Birdlings

Flat is precious and rapidly

diminishing worldwide. My

home at Birdlings Flat has no cell

phone reception either, which I

hope to safeguard as well. For

the past four years I have been

working on my PhD on ‘how

people and things produce

subjective well-being (it’s longer

than this, but I gift you the short

version).’ Particular to well-being

is “place” and this place has all

the right appeal for reconnecting

with the basic and fundamental

elements of our natural world

with all its

raw, uncomplicated

and

complex

brilliance.

Currently,

this can be

experienced

‘both day

and night’

from my side

of the village

(with no

street lights

and no cell

phone coverage).

This “place” provides all the

‘wonder and awe’ that produces

the serotonin that uploads our

biological systems toward wellbeing

when we nightly view

our relative position within the

entire universe. Many nights, the

dark sky takes me to my knees

out of respect for what is already

here without us. This place needs

no artificial light, simply the recognition

of “our place” in whatever

“place” we find ourselves in.

(Abridged)

Kyra Xavia – I’m an active

member of the Dunedin Dark

Skies Group and I’m delighted

that residents in Birdlings Flat

are lobbying

against the

introduction of

new, disruptive,

white blue-rich

LED streetlights.

Current

LED streetlights

recommended

by the New Zealand

Transport

Agency are inappropriate

and unfit

for purpose for

many reasons. As

you are aware,

lighting is complex, there are valid

justifications why people need

to be concerned about existing

LED technology, and much is at

stake. It’s our responsibility to

consider the broader, long-term

negative costs of LEDs that far

outweigh energy, maintenance

and operational savings.

Dyson presents special award

Labour MP for

the Port Hills

Ruth Dyson

writes about

the work

undertaken

by Special

Olympics New

Zealand

THE BAY Harbour News recently

featured local audiologist Jeanine

Doherty being a recipient of the

Paul Harris Fellowship from the

Rotary Club of Ferrymead – an

important recognition of her

community work.

The work is primarily focused

on the work she does with

Special Olympics NZ.

Well, this week I had the privilege

of presenting Jeanine with

yet another prestigious award –

the Golisano Health Leadership

Award, the highest award given

by Special Olympics.

It was a pleasure to be joined

by representatives from both the

Rotary Club of Ferrymead and

the Lions organisation which

are huge supporters of Special

Olympics.

Many people get Special

Olympics and Paralympics confused

but they are very different

organisations. Special Olympics

provides sporting opportunities

for people with intellectual disability

and operates with a very

small team of paid staff and a

huge network of volunteers.

It runs serious coaching sessions

for a range of sports, and

alongside that goes the fun and

friendship associated with involvement

in sport.

But Jeanine is part of the

SPECIAL: Audiologist Jeanine

Doherty was awarded the

Golisano Health Leadership

Award, the highest award

given out by Special Olympics

New Zealand.

Special Olympics team that does

so much more than this – even

though the sporting work is

huge.

As an audiologist, she provides

free hearing health checks for

the special Olympians. Others

provide vision, dental and feet

health checks. This is amazing

work that links a large number

of people with access to health

checks that they are often otherwise

unable to access.

It is a sad fact that many in

our communities don’t access

services that many others take

for granted. People like Jeanine

use their expertise to bridge that

gap. It is a generous contribution

of their skills to improve the lives

of others.

We should all be grateful that

we have people like Jeanine

living in our community. Big

thanks for this great work.

COMPOSED: Jordan Halligan plays a ball in midfield.

IN FLIGHT: Bays’ keeper Max Collingwood is it full stretch to make a save.

​Late goals save Ferrymead Bays

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

FOR THE second time in as

many games a 90th-minute

goal has kept Ferrymead Bays’

Southern League title hopes

alive.

With 25min remaining in

their match against Dunedin

Technical on Sunday Bays

found themselves down 0-1.

However, an equaliser from

Nikolai Molijn and winner

from Sho Mathieson in the final

15min saw bays return home

with three points.

Playing into a strong wind in

the first-half Bays coach Danny

Halligan says his side were unlucky

not to hold an advantage

with two goals ruled out by

offside.

In the second half Dunedin

Tech started the stronger of

the two and took the lead after

55min.

With their league hopes on

the line Bays upped the ante and

produced a memorable finish to

the match.

A scramble following a Bays

corner after 75min saw Molijn

roof the ball into the back of

the net. They would carry that

momentum into the dying stages

of the match which saw Mathieson

get his head on the end of a

launched free-kick from 50m out

by Sam Ford.

“We continued to press and

knew we would eventually score

but had to hope we score quickly

twice,” said Halligan.

“It was a great result and one

we felt we deserved.”

The win means that Bays

are now two points off leaders

Cashmere Technical. Bays next

match will see them host Nelson

Suburbs at English Park this

Sunday.

Nelson secured their first win

in the Southern League at the

weekend when they defeated

Queenstown AFC 5-0.

“We know them well, they’re

a quality side and will be full

of confidence after a big win,”

WINNER: Sho

Mathieson’s late

header secured

three points

for Ferrymead

Bays on Sunday.

MORGAN JARVIS ​

said Halligan.

Bays will also hope that the

trio of Chris Murphy, Shawn

O’Brien and Mark Peers can

shake off knocks picked up during

Sunday’s match. O’Brien and

Peers are battling with ongoing

niggles while Murphy picked up

an ankle injury.

Sumner’s metro campaign comes to abrupt end

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER COACH Martin

Dodgson says he will have

a huge pebble in his shoe

bothering him over the

summer after Sumner’s

premier metro rugby

campaign came to an end

on Saturday when they were

defeated 7-36 by Marist Albion.

After starting the season in

historic fashion by recording

their highest ever finish in

the opening round robin

(third), Sumner failed to fire

in the top-six Hawkins Trophy

competition.

The fall in form was

compounded at St Leonards

Park on Saturday when Marist

eliminated Sumner in the

Hawkins Plate semi-final –

played for between the bottom

two finishers in the top six

competition and top two

finishers in the bottom six

competition.

“We were beaten by a better

team,” said Dodgson.

“We actually had a lot of

fight. We had most of the ball

to start the game but they were

great on defence and grew in

confidence the more they held

us off.”

After taking an early 7-0 lead

the momentum quickly turned

in Marist’s favour.

The home side also found

themselves down a man late in

the game after Ollie Niessen

was sent to the side-line

following a second yellow card

offence.

With Sumner’s season now

over coach Dodgson pointed

out his side’s 19-40 loss to New

Brighton in June as the turning

point.

“Whoever won that game

was almost assured of

making the semi-finals,”

said Dodgson.

“We will be sitting on that

result for a while, it was a

tough pill to swallow.”

Sumner’s premier team will

have a formal end to their

campaign on August 8 when

the club hold their annual end

You Left Early: A True Story of

Love and Alcohol

by Louisa Young

This brutal, beautiful memoir from award-winning novelist

Louisa Young is a heartbreaking portrayal of love, grief and

the merciless grip of addiction.

Louisa first met Robert Lockhart when they were both 17. Their stopstart

romance lasted decades, in which time he became a celebrated composer

and she, an acclaimed novelist. Always snapping at their heels was Robert’s

alcoholism, a helpless, ferocious dependency that affected his personality before

crippling and finally, despite five years of hard-won sobriety, killing him.

There are a million love stories, and a million stories of addiction. This one is truly

transcendent. It is at once a compelling portrait of a unique and charismatic man;

a bittersweet reflection on an all-consuming love affair; and a completely honest

and incredibly affecting guide to how the partner of an alcoholic can possibly

survive when the disease rips both their lives apart.

This is a hugely important book – raw and unflinching but also uplifting and

elegiac, it should be essential reading for anybody who’s ever lost someone

they loved.

Boy Swallows Universe

by Trent Dalton

language. Babytimes is an interactive

programme including

rhymes, songs, stories and play.

This is a free session.

Markets:

The weekly markets have many

different attractions and delicious

An utterly wonderful novel of love, crime, magic, fate and coming of age, set in

Brisbane’s violent working class suburban fringe - from one of Australia’s most

exciting new writers.

Brisbane, 1983: A lost father, a mute brother, a mum in jail, a heroin dealer

for a stepfather and a notorious crim for a babysitter. It’s not as if Eli’s life isn’t

complicated enough already. He’s just trying to follow his heart, learning what it

takes to be a good man, but life just keeps throwing obstacles in the way - not

least of which is Tytus Broz, legendary Brisbane drug dealer.

But Eli’s life is about to get a whole lot more serious. He’s about to fall in love.

And, oh yeah, he has to break into Boggo Road Gaol on Christmas Day, to save

his mum.

A story of brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships, Boy

Swallows Universe will be the most heartbreaking, joyous and exhilarating novel

you will read all year.

A beautiful life… in serene seclusion

99 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Bay

Negotiation over $939,000 plus GST (if any)

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living/dining room | 3 car garage | 21.2440ha freehold land | Listing #6459

The interior of this extraordinarily

appealing home has been largely crafted

using the enduring beauty of native timber,

resulting in superb spaces for those who want

a whole lot more than a strictly utilitarian

box in a suburban setting. It offers all the

rustic charm you want with all the comfort

you need, combining all day sun with

beautiful views and superb living spaces,

solar hot water panels, two water tanks, a log

burner on wetback and gas cooking.

The cleverly designed floor plan allows

for many options. Live on one side of the

home with three double bedrooms upstairs

with one of these opening onto its own

balcony and a spacious sun drenched open

plan kitchen/lounge opening to the deck

and garden. Along with all of this, two tile

and timber detailed bathrooms all make for

good family living or, in the unlikely event,

you want to share your piece of paradise

with others this will, of course, make for

a wonderful Airbnb proposition, with 2

bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with its own

open plan kitchen and living areas opening

onto the balcony. Tucked away, a short walk

from the main house must be the ultimate

romantic retreat in the form of a candle

lit cabin with an outdoor bath over a fire.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

IT COULD be some time before

charges are laid in relation to the

fatal hit-and-run in Dallington.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg

Cottam said yesterday the vehicle

involved in the crash last week

was still being examined.

He said there was still a lot of

work to do to gather all the information

and finish police inquiries

before any charges would be laid.

“They can take some time,” he

said.

“We’ve got six months to lay

charges in relation to traffic offending

– it certainly won’t take

that long.”

Steffan Pearce-

Loe (right), 30, was

hit by a vehicle

near the Gayhurst

Rd bridge while

walking his dogs at

about 2.30am last

Thursday.

He died in hospital

from his injuries on Friday.

His funeral was held on Tuesday.

Police found the vehicle

involved, which had damage

consistent with the crash, on Saturday.

A detective saw it parked

up a driveway.

The vehicle’s owner, who was

driving, has been interviewed by

police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam

remained tight-lipped about
