Hollywood on show in Sumner • By Matt Salmons FILM BUFF and former soldier Wil Wright is turning his Sumner home into a gallery of his more than 12,000 original film posters. As far as the avid collector knew, it would be the first of its kind in New Zealand. “There’s a few private collectors around, but they don’t really have them out on display.” The gallery would open this summer in the home he and his wife had moved into over Christmas. Viewing would be free, by appointment and in every room except the “bedrooms and bathrooms.” “It’s hard to get it all out on display, we’ve got about 12,000 plus pieces in the collection,” Mr Wright said. The former British Army gunsmith said he started his collection more than 20 years ago with a poster from classic John Wayne World War 2 film The Longest Day. •Turn to page 6 p: (03) 331 6757 m: 021 633 669 e: Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd (Licensed REAA 2008) Additional $13.7m to rebuild Redcliffs School • By Matt Salmons REDCLIFFS SCHOOL now has all the money it needs to start its rebuild. The Government announced a further $13.7 million would be invested, bringing the cost of rebuilding the school to $16 million. Education Minister Chris Hipkins said the funding was in addition to $62 million announced for the Christchurch School’s Rebuild Programme in Budget 2018 and was part of $332 million announced in the same Budget to support school infrastructure. “The funding I’m announcing today will bridge the gap between what was originally budgeted for Redcliffs School in the rebuild programme and what is required now.” It comes as a petition from Friends of Redcliffs Park to stop the relocation and reinstate the school goes before the workforce and education select committee today (see page 3). In 2013, the school was approved for funding in the Christchurch School’s Rebuild Programme to have its facilities rebuilt on the existing site. •Turn to page 5 SUNDAY roast 1/188 Mt Pleasant Rd Auction 30 Sept at 12pm, held on site, unless sold prior Open Homes: Wed 1-1:30pm, Sun 11:30-12pm 9 Evans Pass Rd Auction 15 Sept at 12:30pm, held on site, unless sold prior Open Homes: Thurs 12:30-1pm, Sun 12:30-1pm $17 Call the Standevens Simon Standeven 0274 304 691 Paula Standeven 027 547 2852 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead | /TheStandevens today.
