A FEW years ago, Ruby Hunt

would never have had the

confidence to step out on a stage

in front of thousands of people.

But that’s exactly what the

Burwood woman did last week

at the Miss Universe New Zealand

finals, in which she placed

in the top 10.

Miss Hunt said her experience

in the competition was ‘amazing’.

“It was just something that I

thought ‘why not?’ And you’ve

got to try new things and get the

experiences from them.”

She said after she put in her

application, she was overjoyed

to find she had made the top 20,

and was sent to Auckland for

training at the Stiletto Camp.

“It was amazing. They had

make-up classes, a nutritionist

came and talked to us, there was

a choreographer,” she said.

artwork

set to

liven up

Brighton

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ARTWORK COSTING about

$60,000 will be brightening up the

New Brighton foreshore.

Entries are open for artists to

take part in the SCAPE Public Art

Trust’s Re:ACTIVATE 2018: New

Brighton art competition.

Two winning design entries

will be chosen, one to be enlarged

on a half basketball court, while

the other will be on a large mural

space in New Brighton. The total

cost of the installation will be

about $60,000.

The artists will each win $3000

in prize money. It is planned to

have the artwork visible on Google

Earth. Both artworks will be located

on the south side of the New

Brighton Pier. The project is being

funded by Development Christchurch

Ltd and SCAPE.

SCAPE executive director

Deborah McCormick said it was

attracted to the strong urban

art scene developing out in New

Brighton.

“We are looking at areas under

regeneration in the city. It was a

logical place to go to New Brighton,”

she said. •Turn to page 3

I HOPE city council staff read the Pegasus

Post.

Again we have a swag of letters (see

page 4) from readers saying the Guy

Fawkes fireworks display must stay in New

Brighton. As we have said in the last few issues, it’s a no-brainer

to keep it at the pier and any bid to shift it elsewhere will be met

with a potential powder keg of resistance.

Local city councillors David East and Glenn Livingstone have

pledged to fight the good fight if the council bureaucrats in

Hereford St have other ideas.

As one letter writer on page 4 says: I don’t live in New

Brighton and I have only been once. I do think it is a great place

for it.

Too right.

Readers respond to

the Pegasus Post

article on keeping the

annual New Brighton

Fireworks event at the

pier

Gary Knight – Kids-

Fest since 1992 has been

encompassing events

in Christchurch, Banks

Peninsula, Waimakiriri

and Selwyn. Sparks In The

Park since 1983. Ongoing

New Year Eve celebrations

and fireworks on the pier

since 1997 bears testimony

to the longevity of

these iconic Christchurch

events. It is ludicrous

therefore that at this

stage internal city council

bureaucracy deems these

events to be reviewed

under the umbrella of the

community events’ implementation

plan. There

exists also a lack of rationale

in the survey process

to bolster this review. A

random survey of 500

citywide residents on city

council run events since

2016 to determine any

traffic management issues

will cause many to query

council mandates. As an

iconic and revered event

it would be demeaning

and counter productive

for New Brighton to lose

the fireworks on the pier.

It is a spectacular event

enjoyed by many who will

continue to utilise entry

and exit points in spite

of the road works, thus

dispelling any parochial

views relating to traffic

and safety aspects of this

fireworks extravaganza.

Hamish Ballantyne

– I fully support the firework

display, especially

for the children. If properly

carried out, and controlling

fireworks to the

beach, fire hazard should

not be a problem. Animals

are a problem, and maybe

the noise situation could

be reduced with more emphasis

on the spectacular

effects. When the Anzac

parade is carried out, Marine

Pde from Longsdale

Rd to Hood St is closed

but senior citizens and

special needs people are

allowed access and have

therefore parking near the

show. Emergency lanes

for emergency services

could also be instigated, as

parking has always been a

problem.

Brian Smith – I

believe the fireworks

display should stay at New

Brighton. The travelling

public know what to

expect in terms of getting

too and from the venue.

If they are not happy

with it they won’t go. Not

everyone needs instant

hassle free entertainment.

They don’t pay anything

for it so half an hour or

an hour sitting in a car

getting in and out is not

a great hardship. Or take

a bus. I don’t live in New

Brighton and I have only

been once. I do think it is

a great place for it.

Kenneth France –

Agree fireworks should

stay in New Brighton.

In regard to health and

crowd safety, now would

be a good time for the city

council to form a strategic

getaway plan, which could

then be put into use in

event of a tsunami, as during

the last siren warning

was almost impossible to

leave North Beach due

to the amount of traffic

attempting to exit Marine

Pde.

Aileen Trist – This

wonderful event should

stay on the pier as it is an

amazing spectacular spot.

People over the other side

of town can go up onto

the Port Hills if they don’t

want to travel to the beach

and other community

members can enjoy the

display any place along

the beach front. It is also

a very safe spot keeping a

safe distance away from

the public and allows for

not only a high spot for

the display but the ability

to have displays coming

down off the pier.

Fila McCracken – If

the city council wants to

take public events away,

are they going to replace

them with anything or is

this a money saving tactic

so they can spend up large

elsewhere?

Karen Hibberd – Ban

all fireworks.

Taina Kahutia

Tawhitopou Connell

– Ban it.

A reader responds

to the Pegasus Post

article on ongoing

drainage issues in

Southshore

Aileen Trist – It is

time the city council fixed

this issue properly instead

of using a “Band-Aid” fix.

There has always been a

flooding problem down

there starting before the

earthquakes. Yet, when

the drains were fixed after

the earthquakes they

just replaced “like-forlike.”

Residents have been

complaining for a long

time that the system was

not doing its intended job

yet it has always fallen on

“deaf ears.”

FOR MORE than six

years, inmates from a

Christchurch Men’s Prison

unit have been providing

weekly deliveries of fresh

vegetables to Aviva, a local

family and sexual violence

The prison’s vegetable

garden was started in 2012.

And since early 2013, 625

70-litre crates of produce

have been delivered to

Aviva – 63 of them since

January this year. Aviva is

based at Eastgate Shopping

Centre.

“Prison vegetable

She said the most

difficult part was trying to

balance the competition

with her social life and

her job at Lexus of

“It was balancing my

life, my full-time job,

dancing, still seeing family

and friends and then doing

the fundraising as well as

preparing for the competition.”

“Everyone has 24-hours

families.

“We see a lot of people

who struggle to afford

fresh veges – and some

who struggle to afford food

in general. The vegetables

from the prison are an

absolutely vital component

in making many families’

nutrition and budget much

healthier.”

“Even in winter, there

are usually enough

vegetables to make the

run worthwhile,” said Mr

Grout. ”This week the unit

dispatched four crates

of potatoes, silverbeet,

cabbage, cauliflower

etc. During the warmer

seasons, up to six or seven

crates can be delivered.”

About 70 per cent

of the prisoners in the

20-bed unit have prison

jobs, including in the

distribution warehouse or

collecting rubbish across

the prison.

Mr Grout said these men

But the support from

her friends and family, and

the confidence she gained

from the experience made

it all worth it.

“The whole family was

so proud, she said.

“You know, four years

ago I would have never

put myself out there, so

Vegetables grown at

the unit include beans,

cucumber, pumpkin, broccoli,

carrot, celery, parsnip,

lettuce, garlic, turnip,

silverbeet, spinach, and

peas. Other seasonal products

include strawberries,

lemons and raspberries.

The produce is harvested,

cleaned and packed in the

delivery.

The garden also propagates

and grows seedlings

Earthquake claims

still not settled?

Our newspapers are full of stories

recounting the problems many home

owners are having in settling their

earthquake claims. EQC’s repairs

failing, and insurance companies not

meeting their

obligations,

are common

problems being

experienced.

Aurum Building

Brokers manager,

Chris Seque,

advises that to

be in a position

to challenge EQC and/or your insurer,

you need “best” evidence.

Homeowners need to prove their loss:

1. The property has suffered

earthquake damage

2. The property is covered by

an insurance contract for the

damage.

3. The damage needs to be

appropriately assessed.

4. A reinstatement

solution needs to

be prepared that

describes the standard

of repair required in

terms of the insuarnce

policy and the EQC

act.

5. The cost of

reinstatement needs to be

quantified.

Chris advises that Aurum Building

Brokers has been helping Christchurch

home owners for the past six years

in preparing the evidence portfolios

needed for advocates and lawyers

to negotiate their claims with insurers.

Aurum’s professional network can

introduce homeowners to the people

who can provide evidence written in

a format to challenge the assessments

provided by EQC’s or the insurer’s

appointed experts.

Captain takes charge at Brighton Lions

Fire rages, homes at risk

After more than 50 years

serving on and off in the

New Zealand Army,

Alastair Rankin has taken

charge at the Lions Club

of New Brighton. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding reports

NEW ROLE: Lions Club of

New Brighton president

Alastair Rankin outside an old

army base next to the former

Addington Jail where he was

stationed from 1973-1975 and

1985-1998. PHOTO: MARTIN

HUNTER

ALASTAIR RANKIN isn’t

afraid of a lot. From deactivating

land mines in Cambodia to

helping monitor borders in the

Middle East, not much fazes the

semi-retired army captain and

Lions president.

Mr Rankin, 68, was elected

to the role last month. He was

a part of the 2/4 Battalion until

February.

So taking on a leadership role

is nothing new for Mr Rankin,

who has also been president of

other Lions clubs. It will be his

second time at the head of the

New Brighton Lions, of which

he was president in the late

1990s.

He has had a long association

with New Brighton, first joining

the Lions club in 1984 before

relocating to Wellington in 2000.

He rejoined the New Brighton

Lions about four years ago.

While living in Wellington, he

became Lions Club of Newlands

president, before he moved to the

Lions Club of Whitby in Porirua.

He said it was not long before

he was elected president in

Whitby.

He has also been zone

chairman for a range of Lions

clubs, including Christchurch

Seaview, Ferrymead, Lyttelton

and Pegasus.

His goal for the New Brighton

club is to raise membership.

“There is no criteria . . . all

you have got to do is want to

do something useful for your

community,” he said.

During his time in the army,

Mr Rankin worked for a year

at the Cambodian Mine Action

Center in 2004, training and retraining

de-miners. He was also

heavily involved in operations in

the minefields.

Land mines are a big problem

in Cambodia and are a legacy

of three decades of warfare,

starting with the Cambodian

Civil War in the late 1960s.

The remaining land mines are

discovered using a metal detector

and burned. Mr Rankin said

while he trusted the de-miners

to have cleared the area, when he

first began working in the job,

there was “a bit of trepidation”.

He said hundreds of land

mines were uncovered every day.

“I was standing a few feet away

from a guy who stood on one

and it blew his foot off,” he said.

But he said driving in

Cambodia was more dangerous

than working on the minefields.

Many of the main roads had

only just been tarsealed when

he was in the county and there

wasn’t a lot in the way of road

rules, he said.

“We never drove at night out

in the country side. It just wasn’t

worth it, cows would just walk

out onto the road,” he said.

Mr Rankin spent about five of

his military years overseas.

He was posted to Singapore

from 1976-1978, working in the

communications centre for New

Zealand Force South East Asia.

“I liked south Asia. The two

countries are very different.

Singapore was very quick to go

ahead and Cambodia was only

just going ahead and that was

because of the war,” he said.

He worked with the New

Zealand training advisory team

for the Multinational Force

and Observers in the Middle

East, which was monitoring the

border between Israel and Egypt

in Sinai.

His job was to help train

the United States, Fijian and

Colombian troops on the border.

different ways of thinking and

different ways of doing things.

Doesn’t mean it is wrong. It is

just different and you can learn

from it,” he said.

Mr Rankin said he learnt the

most from working with the

101st Air Assault Division, a

division of the US Army trained

for air assault operations.

“They were brilliant . . . they

were particularly good at aircraft

recognition. When you are on

the border and the jet flies over

you, it flies over very quickly

and you have only got a split

second to say what kind it is,” he

said.

He comes from a military

family and joined the army when

he was 16- years- old, seeking

adventure, “excitement” and to

get away from Blenheim where

he grew up. Mr Rankin said

joining the army “wasn’t a shock

to the system” as compulsory

military training was practised

for males up until 1972.

He retired three times – the

first was after 21 years of service

and he wanted to provide

“stability” for his children.

Now that he has semi-retired,

he is involved in part-time

project work writing reports on

issues in the army such as driver

fatigue.

Having spent time overseas,

Mr Rankin said he now has

a “fairly relaxed attitude” to

life.

“It is a lovely place in New

Zealand . . . it is lovely to be able

to go into the bush, sit down

and know there are no snakes or

scorpions,” he said.

Wow, you’ve made it

look like new again!

a comment brett Muir hears frequently in his ‘Groutpro’ business, as he takes

care of grout related problems confronting many householders.

“After years of constant use, unsealed grout will become discoloured” Brett says.

That’s because grout (even new grouts) are porous and absorb dirt, grime and spills.

The deep clean results that come with professional tile and grout cleaning, prepare for the

essential next step. “Application of a colourseal coating on the grout will make a transforming

difference in appearance” Brett says. With almost 100 colour options, coloured grout sealer is

non porous and waterproof making cleaning so much easier.

replacing cracked tiles, resiliconing shower edges, removing calcium buildup on

shower tiles, regrouting cracked grout and all tile related issues are part of the

Groutpro service.

before

for an uplift of your tiled area:

Shower, bathroom, kitchen, pool

surround, deck etc. Brett will give you a

quote and honest, professional advice on

your tiles and grout.

REMARKABLE CONCERT EXPERIENCE

THE NZSO AND THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION!

TO CELEBRATE their 20th year e

Phoenix Foundation have joined forces

with the NZSO for a remarkable concert

experience.

e Phoenix Foundation is one of the

most iconic New Zealand bands of the 21st

century. Formed in Wellington in the late-

90s, they have been lauded here and

overseas and feted by rock royalty, from

Neil Finn and Jarvis Cocker to Iggy Pop.

e band has also contributed to several

movie soundtracks, including film-maker

Taika Waititi’s celebrated box office smash

Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

If you are not yet familiar with their

music, you are in for a treat; if you are, you

are likely to encounter their most

challenging and assured set of songs yet.

From the soaring soundscape of opener

“Mountain” and the frantic, joyful surge of

the David Fridmann (e Flaming Lips,

Tame Impala)-mixed “Bob Lennon, John

Dylan”, through to the trippy, delicate

“Prawn” and “Myth”, and the self-styled

manifesto of sorts that is the title track,

this is the sound of a band at the top of

their game, making music that is every bit

as enjoyable as it is detailed and wellcraed.

And with a substantial back catalogue of

much-loved songs from their five previous

albums – “Horsepower”, “Pegasus”, “Happy

Ending”, “Buffalo” and “Fandango” – to

draw from, they are a band who have

earned their place in the hearts and minds

of their audience, and who are equal parts

charm, hard work and inspiration, and

who fully deserve your attention, just as

you fully deserve the wonderful music they

make.

Drawing from their much loved

catalogue, e Phoenix Foundation and

Orchestra will perform unique

arrangements of audience favourites and

deep album cuts.

It will also be a rare opportunity to hear

their soundtrack work performed live.

e NZSO and e Phoenix Foundation

perform in Christchurch at the Isaac

eatre Royal on ursday 30 August 2018.

7pm start. Tickets on sale now at Ticketek.
