The signs get rotated every

Along with Mr Hillyer’s own

It’s a non-confrontational approach

which seems to have hit

crime

cameras

• By Sarla Donovan

A MOVE to put crime cameras

into Sumner village has hit a

speed bump.

In December last year a group

of concerned residents set up a

Givealittle page with a goal of

raising $4000 to buy two CCTV

cameras.

The target was hit in early

January when Johnston Architects,

based in Wakefield Ave,

offered to match any donations

made on the Safer Sumner

Givealittle page.

But after what group member

Kathy Preston said had been

“some lengthy consultations

with the city council and the

police” they have now been

advised to purchase cameras

that will work with the existing

police surveillance system.

The group needs to raise an

additional $15,000 on top of the

$4000 they already have.

“Unfortunately, this is going

to cost a lot more than we

originally thought,” said Ms

Preston.

THAT’S ONE very innovative way to solve

parking issues at drop-off and pick-up time

zones at Mt Pleasant School on today’s

front page.

The innovative way? – humour drivers

with great signage.

School caretaker Simon Hillyer came up with the novel idea

and it is working a treat, apparently.

It is a great non-confrontational approach to getting people to

do what you want them to do.

Says Simon: “I’ve got a fairly warped sense of humour! We just

try and keep it fresh.” You should be moonlighting for an ad

agency.

On another note, more delays in getting the CCTV cameras

in Sumner up and running (page 1).

They are a great idea but they have been dogged by delays.

Pathway trees to be replaced

• By Sarla Donovan

THE REMOVAL of 24 healthy

trees has been approved as

part of the Coastal Pathway

landscape plan.

Construction on the penultimate

stage of the pathway is due

to start by the end of October

at a cost of $8.2

million.

It runs alongside

footpath at the start of the memorial

walk near the Marriner

St/Esplanade intersection.

A golden totara, three pohutukawa,

and three norfolk island

pines are among those to be

removed as part of the plan.

Depending on the size and

species of the trees, some may be

relocated. A further 14 trees in

poor condition will also go.

The removals will make way

for improvements to the Sumner

beach car park, which includes

better beach access and landscaping.

They will be replaced by

about 48 new trees – in some

instances like for like, such as

the norfolk pines.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

approved the plan last week.

Board member Tim Lindley

said it had been “very carefully”

thought through.

“I was impressed by how selective

they are being . . . the overall

plan of the Coastal Pathway is to

increase the number of trees.”

Funds to address freedom camping issues

• By Sarla Donovan

A FUNDING boost from the

Government will help address

freedom camping issues at

summertime hot spots.

The city council is in line for

which brings together representatives

She said it was “too early” to

say where the group were applying

cameras was prompted by a

PARTS OF State Highway 75 will

need to be widened before signs

asking slow drivers to pull over

can be installed.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board asked the New

Zealand Transport Agency to

look into the signs in December

after a request from community

group Love Little River.

NZTA senior traffic and safety

engineer David Scarlet told the

board it had reviewed the road

and it doesn’t currently meet the

criteria.

There needs to be a widened

sealed shoulder area that slower

drivers can use to move safely

out the way.

“The review showed that there

aren’t any suitable places at the

moment. However, we will be

looking to see if there are some

suitable places where we could

construct a widened, sealed

shoulder and seek funding for

this in 2018/19,” Mr Scarlet said.

Love Little River member Marcus

Puentener said it was a step

in the right direction.

“It is frustrating that it has

taken this long to get a response

from NZTA, as there have been

accidents caused by impatience

over the last few years. But at

least they are looking into it

now,” said Mr Puentener.

“We have to trust the experts,

but surely there are a few places

like the Birdlings Flat turn off

that could be suitable without

widening the road. We believe

there are a number of straight,

long sections of the road suitable

for . . . pull over signs. These

include the ‘mad mile’ just

past Birdlings Flat turn off,

Motukarara straight and the

straight past Gebbies Cafe,” he

said.

There were four fatal crashes

on SH75 from 2012-2016. From

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

SH75 needs widening for pull over signs

a total of 37 crashes over the

same period, 33 were serious. In

January last year, a 26-year-old

Chinese national died after

crossing the centre line and

hitting another vehicle near Tai

Tapu.

One month later, more than

20 people were injured when a

bus collided with a car near the

Hilltop Tavern.

Akaroa police senior constable

Tim Johnson said slow drivers

impeding the flow of traffic were

one of the biggest issues faced

when policing SH75.

HUNTER ​

“There is a passing bay going

up the Little River side, which

foreign tourists don’t seem to

realise means you keep left. They

quite often just keep going in the

middle lane which causes angst.

There’s (another) two coming up

from the Barry’s Bay side. The

more (passing bays) there are,

the better the traffic flows, but it

would be a major undertaking,

especially on the hill because

there’s not a lot of verge anyway.”

He said he would support more

signage “depending on what it

was, where and the type of sign.”

Exhibition

to open on

• By Sarla Donovan

A TEMPORARY art gallery

site in London St will have

community engagement at its

heart.

Ka Awatea is a project where

artists create three miniature

artworks and exhibit them in

a series of three group exhibitions

between September and

December.

A pop-up gallery the size of

a shipping container will be

installed on site this week to

house the exhibition. The works

will be based on the artists’ responses

to historical materials

in the museum collection.

The intention is to “create

a dialogue between past and

present,” project director Holly

Cunningham said.

Around 25 artists have been

selected with the first exhibition

of about 11 artists likely to

open at the end of September.

Work is expected to commence

on the new museum

KEEN: The Mt Pleasant School Boys Baking Club face-off in the cake week challenge. From left to

SYMMETRY: The cake week challenge winners were Noah,

for his rainbow chocolate cake (left) and Isaac who is hiding a

delicious lemon cake under that bright icing.

Boys bitten by the baking bug

• By Sarla Donovan

MT PLEASANT School teacher

Ange Tutt has started a new

craze for boys – baking.

She initially set up a baking

club in 2012, “to give pupils

something positive and fun to do

during the stressful earthquake

days.”

It ran in the third term each

year and was originally popular

with girls.

However, after talking to a few

boys Ms Tutt decided to target

them this year.

And lo – the Boys Baking Club

was born.

After starting with one boy

(her own son), she now has seven

– all from year 5/6.

She reckons it was the rebrand

which made the difference.

“As soon as I named it Boys

Baking the boys were suddenly

very keen,” said Ms Tutt.

They meet every Thursday

lunchtime to taste and share

their latest creation.

Each week Ms Tutt issues

a challenge and thus far

muffins, cakes, baking with

yeast and “200 grams of

chocolate” have been faced and

embraced.

Prizes are given out to the boys

for showing creativity and risktaking

when baking.

The cake challenge was one

where they “upped their game”

and created the most delicious

cakes, Ms Tutt said.

“It was a tough competition. In

the end the boys decided Noah

and Isaac deserved a prize for

their incredible decorating.”

She said their honesty and

enthusiasm was amazing.

“I have had photos from parents,

showing me their commitment

to the challenge – pouring

over cookbooks looking for the

perfect recipe.”

All leftover baking heads home

for them to share with their

family (and sometimes it goes

via their classroom teacher for a

taste test).

Yesterday the boys took part in

a master class with Ms Tutt.

“I am a teacher – but a lover of

baking. I taught them to bake

sponge roll, bacon and egg pies

and ciabatta bread. They were all

looking forward to getting out of

FUNDRAISING continues at

pace for the Governors Bay Jetty

Restoration Trust, which has

set itself a goal of eight months

to raise $600,000 towards

restoring the historic structure.

That would allow construction

to begin in mid 2019.

At its recent annual general

meeting a range of ideas were

put forward to help lift the profile

of the campaign and widen

it beyond Governors Bay.

These included a possible

“Jetty to Jetty Challenge” – a

series of events between the

Governors Bay jetty and New

Brighton Pier.

They could involve mountain

biking, road biking, harriers

and walking groups in a race

from the pier to the jetty.

Vintage car, sports car and

motor-cycle rallies between the

two landmarks was also suggested.

Other ideas included a kayaking,

paddle boarding, yachting

and swimming event between

Lyttelton and the jetty.

And an old-fashioned sports

day at Allandale featuring sack

races, egg and spoon races,

three-legged races and sprints

over 300m – which is the length

of the jetty.

RESTORE:

Some creative

fundraising

ideas have

been proposed

to rebuild

Governors Bay

jetty.

Creative ideas for jetty fundraiser

The jetty was badly damaged

in the 2011 earthquakes,

prompting the formation of the

trust which bought it for $1

from the city council in 2016.

It will cost an estimated $3.2

million to restore with $535,000

already committed by the city

council.

The trust has raised $200,000

so far from community and

donations and has submitted

grant applications to the Rata

Foundation and Lotteries Commission,

trust secretary Louisa

Eades said.

Resource consent has been

lodged and they hope it will be

granted by November.

CONSTRUCTION of a

replacement set of beach-access

steps on Beachville Rd, Redcliffs,

is set to begin within two months

after a two-year search for

funding.

The Linwood-Heathcote-Central

Community Board

approved the new steps

at the eastern end of the

road, near the Main Rd

intersection, with discretionary

funding at their

meeting last week.

Their construction

would allow access to

a small area of beach, a

popular play area for children

and for launching kayaks.

Steps there had been damaged

in the 2010/2011 earthquakes

and then removed as part of the

Eastern Seawall works. Replacement

steps had been designed by

SCIRT in 2016, but were not included

in the final seawall plans.

The community board decision

delighted Redcliffs Residents Association

chair Pat McIntosh.

She said residents were disappointed

the steps had been

omitted and had approached both

the city council and community

board for them to be installed

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Funding for seawall

stairs approved

Pat McIntosh

when it became clear they were

not in the plans. However, an

alternative funding source from

council was not found.

“We knew there was local demand

for access, it was obvious.

There’s not many places you can

access the water all the way from

Celia St jetty along to the houses

in Main Rd,” Dr McIntosh

said.

She said she had heard

of people hurting themselves

crossing the riprap

to access the area in the

meantime.

The resident’s association

again approached

the community board

earlier this year, asking if the

steps could be included in the

council’s draft Long Term Plan.

Funding from the discretionary

fund instead sped up the process.

Dr McIntosh said the residents’

association was delighted to hear

the steps would be installed soon.

“We were extremely pleased to

hear that the funding has been

found through the community

board, who have been very supportive,”

she said.

Installation of the precast steps

was estimated to begin in six to

seven weeks.

Waterway names wanted

• By Sarla Donovan

LABELLING more

streams on Banks

Peninsula will raise

awareness and make them

more useful as landmarks.

That’s the suggestion

from Banks Peninsula

Water Management Zone

Joint Committee chairwoman

Paula Smith.

“Many

people are

not familiar

with the

names or

locations

of our

Paula Smith

streams,”

she said in

a letter to the committee,

which met late yesterday.

If more streams had identifying

signs, people would

start to use the names more

and they would become

more useful as landmarks

when describing a location,

she said.

“I also believe labelling

them will raise awareness

of the streams and cause

people to maybe consider

. . . their ecological health

and how land use activities

in their catchments may be

affecting them,” Ms Smith

said.

NAMES: There may soon be more signs like this

marking streams on Banks Peninsula.

She asked the committee

to recommend the city

council prioritise funding

to label 15 streams within

the Banks Peninsula water

management zone.

Ms Smith said she had

chosen those streams

because of their proximity

to the main inner-harbour

roads which were wellused

arterial routes.

They include Pigeon Bay,

Koukourarata, Opara, Le

Bons and Okuti streams.

Though not within the

management zone, Te

Rapu Stream, near Teddington’s

Wheatsheaf

Tavern is also included due

to its prominent location.

Attaching 30 standard

yellow signs – two per

stream – would cost about

$12,000.

Three further streams

– Takamatua, Pipers and

Pawsons – are on State

Highway 75 so the New

Zealand Transport Agency

could be approached for

funding.

Angle parking still an option in Lyttelton

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

PROPOSED PARKING changes

on west London St, Lyttelton

have been put on ice as other

options are explored.

A city council report recommended

five minute parking

restrictions outside the ATM

and 60min parking on the north

side of the street, from Spooky

Boogie cafe to Canterbury St.

Along with no-stopping lines

outside Albion Square for maintenance

vehicle access.

But the Banks Peninsula

Community Board rejected the

changes last week.

It said ‘residents only’ and

angled parking needed to be

looked at before making a decision.

That was in line with

consultation feedback – and

went against the report, which

said angle parking was “not

appropriate” because it would

conflict with fire engine,

ambulance and other heavy

vehicle movements.

But the board disagreed and

has asked city council staff to

investigate resident only and

angle parking “so that the board

can consider these as realistic

options.”

Board member Tyrone Fields

said the issue will be discussed

again in November.

Wastewater pipeline

being laid in harbour

A NEW 5km wastewater pipeline

is being laid under water between

Lyttelton and Governors Bay this

week.

Sections of pipe are being

towed into the harbour by a

barge with an on-board winch.

They are then guided into a

pre-dug trench about 1m below

the harbour seabed.

The first segment of pipe was

launched from Naval Point; once

in place the second piece was

welded on to the tail of the first.

The process is then repeated

until the full 5km length of the

pipeline is in place.

The 24-hour operation started

on Monday and is expected take

several days.

The new pipeline is part of the

Lyttelton Harbour/Whakaraupo

wastewater upgrade to improve

and future-proof wastewater

services in Lyttelton, Governors

Bay and Diamond Harbour.

When construction is complete,

two submarine pipelines

will carry wastewater from

Governors Bay and Diamond

Harbour to Lyttelton, as part of

a $53 million scheme aimed at

ending the routine discharge of

treated wastewater into Lyttelton

Harbour by 2021.

City council head of three waters

and waste John Mackie said

PIPES: Sections of pipe to carry wastewater are being laid

underwater between Governors Bay and Lyttelton this week. ​

it was exciting to see the project

reach the marine stage.

“It’s another step closer to

cleaner water in Lyttelton Harbour

which is an end goal we’re

all committed to.”

The Governors Bay pipeline

should be complete by the end of

this year with the Diamond Harbour

pipeline due for completion

in early 2019.

Currently, wastewater from

Lyttelton, Governors Bay and

Diamond Harbour is treated

at wastewater treatment plants

in each of the townships before

being discharged through outfall

pipelines into Lyttelton

Harbour.

Under the new scheme, untreated

wastewater from Governors

Bay and Diamond Harbour

will be pumped through the

submarine pipelines to a new

pump station on Simeon Quay in

Lyttelton.

It will then be piped through

the Lyttelton Tunnel to the

Woolston pump station and

onto the Bromley wastewater

treatment plant, where it will

be treated. From there it will be

discharged out to sea through the

Christchurch Ocean Outfall.

PARKING: This section of Lyttelton St west may get angled

and residents-only parking after feedback showed strong

support for both. ​

Take a photo, pass it on

INNOVATIVE: Maree Henry

at her shop Henry Traders on

London St. ​

• By Sarla Donovan

ABOUT 15 years ago Maree

Henry was at an open home

in Lyttelton when she took a

photograph out the window – a

view of Lyttelton Port.

She still has it.

And a while ago it got her

thinking about living in the port

town.

“How we all have a different

view from our windows, a different

relation to the harbour.”

So last year, as an experiment,

Ms Henry put a disposable camera

into circulation in Lyttelton.

It was boxed with instructions

to take a photo from a window

in your house, record the street

and the angle of your view in a

small booklet, and then pass the

camera on.

That camera arrived back

recently and Ms Henry said it

was fascinating to see how it had

travelled from place to place.

“The handwriting was quite

lovely; just recording the direction

of the view and the street.

The first view was recorded as

‘looking west from London St,

then looking east from Cressy

Tce.’ Some took a picture from

the back so you were still getting

a view but it was the hills. Other

people wrote, ‘the tugboat coming

in’ and ‘light on Quail Island

looking east.’

Now she’s seen how it could

work, Ms Henry is planning a

book project based on capturing

views from the eyes and windows

of Lyttelton residents.

Though still in the planning

stages she hopes later this year,

(probably later in the spring) to

release 20 disposable cameras

into the community through

her gift shop, Henry Trading on

London St.

Take a photo, then pass it on.

With so many cameras, there’s

room for some ‘collateral damage’

she said, estimating around

400 photos should come back.

From these she will make a

book to sell at her shop.

“I’m interested in the idea that

it’s not up to me, it’s up to fate,

I don’t have control. That anonymity

and the organic nature

of it – as soon as you pass them

out you just cross your fingers

and hope they come back.”

SUMNER athlete John

Hellemans reckons triathlons

can be addictive and harmful.

But he still plans to be on the

start line at the 2018 ITU World

Triathlon grand-final on the

Gold Coast next month.

The world-class triathlete and

coach has just published a new

memoir, in which he explores

some of the tough choices endurance

sports athletes have to

make.

In the book Never, Ever Give

Up? he talks about the social

and physical toll of sports like

triathlon.

Hellemans emigrated from the

Netherlands to New Zealand in

1978. He has combined a career

in general practice and sports

medicine with competing and

coaching in triathlon for nearly

40 years.

“Each year, there was something

new in triathlons relating

to training techniques, race

options, equipment or rule

changes. I loved the dynamic

development of this novel sport,

it kept me interested,” he said.

As his sporting career progressed

and he juggled it with

his family and medical practice

commitments, he began to realise

the significant personal cost

that triathlons can have.

“It’s a very addictive thing.

From a sports medicine perspective,

it can be too much and it

can be harmful – socially in

regards to your relationships

with friends and family, as well

as physically.”

The memoir, published by

Canterbury University Press,

recounts his adventures as a

young doctor in Blenheim and

tells how he was captivated by

the relatively new sport of triathlon

while watching a television

broadcast of the 1979 Les Mills

New Zealand Ironman Championship

in Auckland.

He went on to win six national

titles and represented

New Zealand at several world

championship events and the

1990 Commonwealth Games.

As an amateur, he has won

eight age-group world championship

titles. In October 2013,

at the age of 60, Hellemans

made the decision to compete

in the Hawaiian Iron Man, long

considered the ultimate test in

triathlon where, in excruciating

heat, he found himself staggering

and miserable – but he did

not give up.

“Life used to be about surviving

and meeting basic needs. For

many of us, the modern western

life is too cushioned, so we challenge

ourselves to suffer in other

ways. Endurance sport strips

you bare and you are confronted

with yourself. That is part of the

attraction. But at a certain point

it’s about realising this suffering

may not be good for me.”

An exercise-induced cardiac

event in 2015 brought the message

home again.

But he’s not ready to give

up just yet: The Gold Coast is

calling.

From Sunday 26 August, you’ll

need to plan your travel around

These are essential to both install

and test a new fire protection system

Work on this $28.7 million project

Our People

Giving kids the ride of their life in

Sumner Valley Riding School owner Lisa Hadfield

talks to Sarla Donovan about growing up in the

valley, how the school got started and the night her

donkey Tilly went on a pub crawl

HAPPY FAMILY: Lisa Hadfield

with Tilly the Wonky Donkey

and the Ziggie, a border collie

cross.

Did you grow up around

horses?

No, but I lived in Sumner

from the age of eight. We were

at the back of the valley at 21

Evans Pass. We had no land but

we looked over the valley and

it was all paddocks, all rural

then. There were very few houses

from Wakefield Ave back, and

Sumnervale Drive didn’t exist.

There were heaps of horses and I

hung around the horsey girls. My

first horse was called Lisa, I got

her when I was 13. She lived till

she was 41, a white anglo-arab

mare. We got a beautiful foal out

of her called Kalina.

Where did you go to school?

I went to Sumner School.

My dad worked at Dunlop and

mum made rag dolls. They also

had some craft shops. They had

the Charlotte Jane in Lyttelton

and mum used to sit at home

and make rag dolls. I had three

brothers and one sister. We all

grew up here, we loved it, loved

the valley. I still live here and I’m

54 now.

Did you start competing

when you got Lisa?

No, none of us in the area

could because we didn’t have

parents that had horse floats or

a car big enough to pull a horse

float. If we went anywhere, you

would have to ride, so those who

joined Ferrymead Pony club had

to ride there the morning of a

rally and then ride home at the

end.

But when I had my daughter

Holly, she’s 30 now, I got her

a donkey and then I went out

and competed with donkeys.

The donkey people were just so

relaxed and friendly and that’s

where I enjoyed showing. We’d

turn up at all the A & P shows –

Canterbury, Hawarden . . . I did

that for many years.

How are donkeys different to

horses?

Their natural reaction is to

stand still and they are smoother

for young children to sit on.

They have a smoother and slower

movement. Whereas a pony is a

flight animal, and often they’re

fatter and rounder and a lot

gigglier to sit on for young riders.

Tell me how the riding school

got started?

We had the Terracotta Shop

where the Coffee Culture is,

my husband was a potter. And

one day a lady walked in, an

awesome lady. She asked if I

could take her three children for

riding lessons. So I went out and

bought two more ponies so then

I had four (with Lisa and Kalina)

and I started lessons and it just

grew from there. The chap who

had the lease on the land, (the

late) Barry Kerr from Suburban

Estates passed the lease on to

me and then he sold it to the

council and I continued leasing it

from them. I’ve had a wonderful

relationship with the council all

these years.

How many horses do you own

and who’s your favourite?

Eight ponies and horses and

one beautiful donkey. I don’t

have a favourite but my own

horse is called Gizmo. He’s a

retired racehorse, a 16.3 hand

dark bay thoroughbred gelding.

He’s a bit spoilt, his work ethic

is terrible, you wouldn’t employ

him. I do light level-showing on

him, not the high open classes

because he’s not ready. He’s in

the green horse class so you don’t

have to canter.

I’m training him to be a nice

riding horse and taking him out

to do dressage. My daughter has

her own horse, she does 1.5m

eventing and we’re also training

four riders to compete at the

Springston Trophy. Equestrian

sport is big in New Zealand but

you don’t hear a lot about it.

Sumner

What did you do before you

started the riding school?

When I was really young,

I worked at St John of God

Church as a house mother for

young boys with problems. I’ve

worked in retail, and then in the

Terracotta Shop. We sold mainly

high-end art work – people like

Paul Fisher, Dennis Hadfield

and some others. It was a gallery

really. Then I got more and more

into the riding school and it

needed more attention so I spent

more time on that.

It must be fun having a job

working with animals?

Yes it is. Although I have

two part-time jobs and I’ve just

worked the last two days and

nights with 15min between my

day and night jobs. So when I get

down to the paddock I just stand

there and go, how beautiful, just

how beautiful and how lucky I

am. It’s a little piece of paradise

down there. I’ve now got fourth

generation riders who I taught

to ride bringing their children to

learn on the same donkey they

learnt on. I’ve even done a hens’

night with one of my former

riders, we put her on Tilly and

walked her round all the pubs in

Sumner.

Are your family involved

with horses as well?

I’ve got great-grandparents

who bred clydesdale horses

in Ireland. My whole family’s

adopted, so it’s my birth family

and my dad rode a bit as a teenager,

probably to show off to the

girls I think.

What advice would you give

to parents with children who

want a horse?

Definitely start with the lessons.

Go somewhere your child

will make nice friends and there

is a good standard of horsemanship.

Mette Kristiansen

writes about the new

School

This letter has been a

long time coming but

nonetheless, it needs to be

written. As an ex-Redcliffs

School pupil, I like the

design of the new Redcliffs

School. It will have an

amazing outlook, and

being (supposedly?) above

the flood plain will mitigate

that problem. I’m not sure

about the combination of

mixing children with an

entrance on a narrow part

of the busy Main Rd, but I

am sure the school board

has considered that issue.

What I am very

concerned about here

is the loss of the main

heritage buildings – the

old Redcliffs School’s

main block. It would be

a huge loss to the area to

lose these buildings, and if

they were re-used for some

other purpose, they would

be a huge asset to the

community.

Surely there would be

enough room for sport if

all the other buildings were

pulled down and just the

main block was kept for

Sumner Lifeboat

Aspiring crew put through their paces

Every month Bay

Harbour News

will publish a

column from the

Sumner Lifeboat

Institution.

Today coxswain

Blair Quane talks about

the commitment needed

to become an operational

crew member

LAST SEPTEMBER, a cohort of

new volunteers joined Sumner

Lifeboat.

They were all locals and

represented a variety of ages,

backgrounds and skills – all with

the common goal of becoming

operational crew and being able

to take part in lifeboat call-outs

and rescues.

After six months of training,

members of the group are now

passing the first hurdle – moving

from inductee to trainee, but

it will take most of the year for

them to become operational

crew.

For the crew, a call-out might

involve assisting a vessel in

distress kilometres offshore,

rescuing a surfer in trouble off

Sumner beach, or searching for

an overdue sea kayaker in the

bays of Banks Peninsula.

So how do the volunteer crew

COMMITTED: To become part of a lifeboat operational crew takes at least 12-18 months of

training. ​

members acquire the skills and

knowledge to deal with such

variety? It all comes down to

training.

Lifeboat training involves

completing a set of theory and

practical modules provided by

Coastguard New Zealand, each

of which must be assessed and

signed off by an instructor.

Basic training to become

operational crew covers personal

safety, survival in the water,

health and safety, teamwork, radio

communications, familiarisation

with the local coastline,

search and rescue techniques,

victim recovery, lifeboat handling

and seamanship.

At the core of it all is safety

– both personal and for fellow

crew members. If the lifeboat

crew gets injured or the boat

gets damaged, the mission may

be compromised – so safety

is paramount. The training

culminates in a challenging

practical assessment on board a

rescue vessel.

However, training doesn’t

stop with attaining operational

status – all crew, from newlyqualified

to senior skippers,

must regularly do exercises and

re-assessments to ensure they

remain prepared for anything.

For a volunteer organisation,

the standard of the professionalism

and commitment of the

operational and senior crew at

Sumner Lifeboat is high, and is

something for trainees to aspire

to. Sumner Lifeboat crew are all

volunteers, as are the management

committee and many others

who ensure that this essential

service is one of the country’s

most capable lifesaving organisations.

The costs of training and

equipping about 26 crew members

is growing yearly. Very

little funding is provided by the

Government, so Sumner Lifeboat

needs help – financial or ‘in

kind’ – to enable it to continue

to bring family members home

safely to their loved ones.

Support Port Hills businesses to thrive

National List

MP for Port

Korako has

been out and

about talking

to local

businesses

THE SEASON of new

beginnings is almost here as

spring bulbs and buds bloom.

It’s a great time of year to get

outdoors and enjoy local cafes

and garden centres.

Thriving local businesses in

our Port Hills area are key to a

thriving community.

Businesses both large and

small enhance local activity and

generate new jobs. They are a

valuable asset and we are really

fortunate in the Port Hills bays

and beyond with businesses

that connect so well with our

community. They are our neighbours.

When I travel through the

Port Hills, it is easy to see that

each township has its own

unique character and charm that

contributes to that community’s

identity.

Local small business entrepreneurs

are involved in the community.

They sponsor local clubs

and school kids, they donate to

good causes and support local

events. They generally employ

local people, creating the opportunity

for them to live and work

locally, attend the local schools,

and be part of the community on

a daily basis.

Bus drivers, port workers,

teachers, retail assistants and so

many others all contribute to our

community daily on many different

levels of service, support

and care. They get to know us

well and how the community is

feeling.

When I am out and about, I

ask them for their view on how

people are feeling, what their

concerns are and their aspirations.

Some of the feedback is

that they want a really strong

economy as that impacts on their

jobs and their life, they want

more support for mental health,

a fair work place and the best

environment for themselves and

their families.

I agree with them on all accounts.

That is why you may

have noticed my billboards

announcing public meetings on

various topics to hear your views.

Learn about gardening at a

horticultural society meeting

The Canterbury

Horticultural Society’s fruit

and vegetable growing

meetings start next week.

Each event will offer an

opportunity to learn and

discuss techniques, buy

seeds and share stories

SPRING flowers blossoming

throughout the city are a clear

signal that it’s time to get your

vegetable garden set up and

ready to go.

To help the Canterbury

Horticultural Society has set up

a specialist fruit and vegetable

group focusing on edible

gardening.

Organisers say the group

provides an invaluable way

for new gardeners to learn

how gardens are managed

in each season, and learn

about techniques such as crop

rotation, composting, and

fertilising.

The first session will focus

on tips and tricks for growing

plants from seeds. Experienced

Christchurch home gardener

Phil Ducker will give a

demonstration on how best to

plant seeds.

Mr Ducker’s presentation

aims to provide answers on

where to plant, how close

to plant, how deep to plant,

which companion plants go

best together, which are better

separate, and which plants

could be directly sown in the

garden.

Society programme coordinator

Michele Moore said

there is a lot to learn about the

subject.

“There will be

recommendations on where

to get your seed and which

varieties do well here in

Canterbury. Each variety has

particular requirements, so

success depends on getting

these things right,” she said.

It was important to share

that information down the

generations so that it is not lost,

Mrs Moore said.

Each month, Peter Saunders

will present a segment of his

running commentary, A Visual

Guide To Gardening Through

The Year, which will focus

on what he has been doing in

his garden. By following Mr

Saunders’ progress, it is hoped

other attendees can gain some

insights to apply in their own

gardens.

The meetings will be held

monthly with plants, books and

tools available for purchase, as

well as raffles and refreshments.

The Canterbury Horticultural

Society will hold monthly

meetings at the Deaf Society

rooms, 80 Fitzgerald Ave

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

Steele stepping back from his ‘own club’

• By Matt Salmons

AFTER 26 years being president

of the Sumner Cricket Club, most

people think of it as Ray Steele’s club.

He’s pretty proud of that, but in

his mind it’s time to step back and

let new blood step up to bat.

Mr Steele said he would announce

his intention and successor at the

club’s next annual meeting, but

would remain on as a player and

committee member. He hoped to

also get a grounds-keeping role in

future.

“It’s not going to be easy. I still

want to be involved with the club so

I’m not walking away completely.”

Mr Steele said.

It was a decision he had mulled

over for more than a year. When he

told his wife Heather – the club’s

treasurer – she did not believe him.

“It’s been very emotional for me,

to make the step down. It’s been a

big part of my life so I suppose that’s

quite understandable.”

His first year attending Sumner

games was the year he was born;

1958. His father had just joined the

club as a player.

Mr Steele himself had played in

both junior and senior teams and

joined the committee in 1974.

As president, Mr Steele had overseen

a change in the club’s approach

to fundraising. Taking them from

just surviving season-to-season to

having a “healthy surplus” in the

bank, he said.

The club’s St Leonards Square

rooms had also undergone a number

of changes in that time; the installation

of shower blocks, extensions,

additions of balconies and getting a

liquor licence.

During his tenure as president,

both Mr Steele’s son and young

grandson had played with the club.

His daughter Rebecca was unable

to as there was no women’s teams at

the time, but had represented both

Canterbury and New Zealand. Once

rated the world’s best female orthodox

spin bowler, Mr Steele said she

gained some of her skills by practicing

with club members.

While there were “ups and downs

in every club,” Mr Steele said he had

no regrets looking back and felt he

had been open and collaborative in

his decisions, not spending a cent

unless he had to.

“I always think, it’s not my money,

it belongs to everyone in this club.”

Mr Steele said he was looking

forward to having more time to devote

to the other aspects of the club,

including watching his grandson’s

career develop.

“Once he gets to playing a bit of

afternoon cricket, I might be at a

stage where I’ll be in wheelchair,

struggling to run, so I can spend a

bit more time watching him.”

LIFE MEMBER:

After 440

appearances

with top

Sumner Cricket

Club teams

and 26 years as

club president,

Ray Steele can’t

completely

walk away from

the club he

loves.

In the seniors, McWhirter continued a great

year by winning the 35 and over men’s 10km

Pregnant women sought for anxiety study

Fire rages, homes at risk

PREGNANT women are being

sought for a study on anxiety and

depression.

The Canterbury University

project is studying the effects of

vitamins and minerals – such

as zinc, magnesium, B12 and

vitamin D – on psychological

symptoms.

Said professor and recent

Women of Influence finalist Julia

Rucklidge: “We’re seeing whether

or not we can improve people’s

mental health by using nutrients

that are in your food but at

higher levels than you typically

get out of eating your fruit and

vegetables.”

The study is part of a wider

investigation into how vitamin

and mineral (micronutrient)

supplements could improve low

mood or anxiety.

“So, if this affects you or one of

your family members, you may

be able to participate in one of

our studies,” said Prof Rucklidge.

For the pregnancy study,

women would receive either the

micronutrients or a matching

placebo containing iodine, which

is recommended for pregnant

women. Participants won’t know

whether they are on the placebo

or not. “Then we follow them for

12 weeks to see what happens

to the symptoms that they presented

with,” Prof Rucklidge said.

“After the 12 weeks, everyone

gets to try the nutrients which

gives us the opportunity to also

study the effects of these nutrients

on the infants.”

Prof Rucklidge said the university’s

mental health and nutrition

research group has been doing

this type of research for 10 years

and has published a lot of that

research. “So far it’s been very

encouraging. All of our studies

are pointing in the direction that

nutrition is incredibly relevant to

mental health.”

School teacher’s clothing range in Ballantynes

Young daughters inspire designs for children

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHEN DELWYN Wright’s

daughters were little, she

struggled to find nice winter

coats for them – so she designed

some herself.

Now the school teacher and

mother-of-two’s designs are set to

fill the shelves of the

Ballantynes department store.

Ms Wright’s 100 per cent New

Zealand wool garments were

picked out of about 80 applicants

to win the Ballantynes Bring it

to the Boardroom competition,

which gave designers from across

the country a chance to pitch

their products.

“I thought I had nothing to lose

and Bring It to the Boardroom

was a great opportunity to pitch

my product to Ballantynes. I

think [the judges] liked some of

the detail in the designs and saw

an opportunity to fill a gap in the

children’s wear market.”

She said her main source

of inspiration came from her

daughters.

“Warm, quality New Zealandmade

clothing is not that easy to

find and there appears to be a gap

in the market when girls reach

six-years-old.”

“I got into clothing design

when my daughters were young

and I couldn’t find them warm

winter coats to wear. In the end,

I made them a coat each and

things really just grew from

there. I started to sell a few coats,

and then I gradually built up a

loyal customer base that wanted

other items like skirts and

dresses.”

Ms Wright’s designs range

from coats and capes to dresses.

They will line the shelves of

Ballantynes’ children’s wear

department for a year. She will

keep all profits made from her

sales.

“Over the next year, I am

hoping to gain lots of advice and

guidance around the designing

and marketing of my product.

It would be great to grow my

brand, gain some wider exposure

and then I will just see where this

leads.”

“Ultimately, I remain

committed to being NZ-made

and locally-produced.”

DESIGN FLARE: Delwyn

Wright took out the

Ballantynes Bring it to the

Boardroom competition

with her children’s clothing

designs.

Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

What if the person you thought you knew best turned out

to be someone you never knew at all?

Andrea Oliver’s mother, Laura, is the perfect small-town

mum. Laura lives a quiet but happy life in sleepy

beachside Belle Isle. She’s a pillar of the community: a

speech therapist, business owner and everybody’s friend.

And she’s never kept a secret from anyone. Or so Andrea thinks.

When Andrea is caught in a random violent attack at a shopping mall, Laura

intervenes and acts in a way that is unrecognisable to her daughter. It’s like Laura is

a completely different person - and that’s because she was. Thirty years ago. Before

Andrea. Before Belle Isle.

Laura is hailed as a hero for her actions at the mall but 24 hours later she is in

hospital, shot by an intruder, who’s spent decades trying to track her down.

What is Andrea’s mother trying to hide? As elements of the past return and put them

both in danger, Andrea is left to piece together Laura’s former identity and discover

the truth - for better or worse - about her mother. Is the gentle, loving woman who

raised her also a violent killer?

The Other Woman by Daniel Silva

She was his best-kept secret ...

THIS BOOK

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman

begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in

the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the

keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted

a mole into the heart of the West - a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate

power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer

and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service.

Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost.

Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the

postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside

Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His

quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest

act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac

River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless.

The inspiration for The Ghost Tree lies in Barbara Erskine’s own personal history

– branching back to the days of Thomas Erskine, her great grandfather, five times

removed.
