Full steam ahead for tug Lyttelton

• By Matt Salmons

THE STEAM tug Lyttelton is

gearing up to steam across the

harbour again after three years

laid up for repairs.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation Society

treasurer and head stoker ​

Mike Bruce said volunteers had

started stoking the boiler on

Monday morning.

It could take four days to build

pressure without damaging the

long-dormant and irreplaceable

boiler. Mr Bruce said volunteers

could be doing a late shift

tonight for a pre-dawn start

tomorrow.

Once the right pressure was

reached, the society would turn

on the engines for the first time

in three years.

“I’m excited and terrified at

the same time,” Mr Bruce said.

The society was confident

the tug could be accepting passengers

again this sailing season.

Each lost season meant a loss of

income for the society.

It was hoped tug Lyttelton

would have been ready for

the last sailing season. However,

repairing and overhauling the

boat to satisfy issues raised in its

last marine survey three years

ago took longer than expected.

Tomorrow, a marine surveyor

and marine architect would

inspect the boat.

thefts from

mailboxes

• By Matt Salmons

PARCELS, LETTERS and bills

are being taken from mailboxes

around Diamond Harbour.

Last week, Purau Ave resident

Tara Meredith left her house to

pick her daughter up and saw two

letters in the mailbox, which she

left to collect afterwards.

When she returned around 30

minutes later, they were gone and

nobody else was home.

“It’s quite disturbing.

“It’s so blatant, our mailbox is in

the open.”

She said she had not received

two parcels sent by a friend over

the last month and believed they

too had been stolen.

Mrs Meredith said she reported

the missing letters to New Zealand

Post and had been told she

was not alone.

“There’s more than one complaint,

there’s quite a few.”

She also reported the theft to

police, the only person to do so as

of last week.

A NZ Post spokeswoman said

the company was aware of mail

going missing and said any missing

mail should be reported as

soon as possible. •Turn to page 4

THERE’S A win-win fundraising venture

on page 5 today.

Contribute to the Governors Bay jetty

restoration and you will be able to drink

good beer in return.

A limited one-off brew from Two

Thumbs Brewing Co will be released next month for the

fundraising campaign. The company is owned by Governors

Bay resident Mark Limber.

The jetty will cost $3 million. The community has so far

raised $200,000 of the $600,000 it needs to contribute to the

project.

A case of the fundraising beer costs $120 (12 bottles). So when

you’re knocking one back this summer it will be going to the

jetty fund.

As Mark says: “Everybody wants a beer for Christmas, it may

as well be for a good cause.”

CCTV sites under consideration

• By Matt Salmons

WHILE THEIR installation

is still subject to funding,

sites for the proposed Sumner

crime cameras are now being

considered by the city council.

Christchurch

Transport

Operations

Centre team

leader Ray

Young said a

decision was

made to install

Sally Buck

the cameras

“subject to

funding”, after

a September 11 site visit by city

council staff and police.

He said three locations were

being considered – outside the

Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club,

the corner of Marriner St and

the Esplanade and the corner of

Marriner St and Burgess St.

“CCTV cameras for this

purpose are generally fixed

in place due to the cost of

setting up communication and

power requirements,” Mr Young

said.

City council staff were investigating

pricing options to provide

to the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board.

“The board will make the

final decision on how to proceed,”

Mr Young said.

Last month the Bay Harbour

News reported that police would

not be able to help fund the

cameras, but a representative

had visited potential sites with

the city council.

The residents had raised

$4000 but needed a further

$16,000.

Because of the lack of police

funding, the group of Sumner

residents seeking the cameras

were planning to approach the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

Board chairwoman Sally Buck

said she was looking forward to

hearing their case.

“Staff have told me they will

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

come to a board meeting in

future when they have got the

costs involved.

“We will also be asking the

police if this is the top priority

for a crime camera.” She said

there was a “considerable sum

of money” left in the board’s

discretionary fund that could be

used if funding was approved.

Fellow board member and

Heathcote Ward councillor Sara

Templeton said they would need

to wait for a report and some

“really good information from

police” before deciding to financially

back the cameras or not.

“There are many areas in our

community board area with

issues with break-ins and crime.

WATCH: The

Sumner Surf

Life Saving

Club is being

considered

as a location

for the

proposed

Sumner

crime

cameras. ​

We need to ensure that what we

are doing is going to give the best

outcome for the community asking

us,” Cr Templeton said.

Police metro community

services manager Senior

Sergeant Stephan McDaniel

said having more cameras was a

good thing.

“We’ll support them [Sumner

camera advocates], but when it

comes down to it, the council

doesn’t have bottomless pockets

so they can only do what they

can do.

“When you compare Sumner

with other areas of the city, its

crime rate is not substantial. But

it’s about the community feeling

safe.”

Plants, car

stolen in mini

crime spree

• By Matt Salmons

CHEEKY THIEVES have taken off

with two distinctive potted plants

from a Sumner hair salon.

Genz Hair Design owner Genna

Holland said four potted plants

were stolen from outside her Nayland

St business last Monday. Two

of which were topiary trees and

more than 1m high.

Ms Holland said was not too

worried about the theft of her plants

as there had been more upsetting

crimes committed that same night.

“Apparently there was a whole lot

of stuff stolen out here that same

night as well as graffiti and a car

stolen,’’ she said.

Police said a burglary was reported

on Menzies St, and a car was stolen

on Nayland St, however, there

were no reports of wilful damage in

the area on Monday night.

A car was also broken into on

Beachville Rd, Redcliffs.

Police metro community services

manager Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said he could not comment

whether the number of crimes

reported was unusual.

“It’s usually a low-crime area

though,” he said.

He said police were still

investigating the stolen car.

“We encourage people to report

people to take steps to protect

against theft, such as “installing a

“If people are going away they

“Unless I got a camera and constantly

Ngatea Rd resident Charlotte

Mccoy said a card for her daughter’s

from their mailbox in July. It

was opened and dumped after

card.

“It’s a pretty rotten thing.

Timeline to resolve District Plan issues

• By Matt Salmons

A RESOLUTION to the issues

Redcliffs residents are facing

with building or renovating

could possibly be found in time

for Christmas.

Residents’ groups and

community boards had sought

to get an enabling clause added

to the District

Plan since

2016. The lack

of which would

made it almost

impossible for

residents in

and Redcliffs

to build or

renovate

on vacant

property.

Last week the city council

approved that staff draft a

proposal for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods to utilise her powers

under section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act to

add the clause.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said he was

“very pleased” with the outcome.

“I would like to think this

could happen before Christmas

not after. However, we have to

follow due process.”

City council staff were requested

to present the initial

draft by October 23 “at the

latest.”

Following approval of that

draft, staff would need to give

strategic partners up to 30 days

to provide feedback before

gaining final approval for the

proposal to go to Dr Woods for

a final round of public consultation.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said Dr

Woods would only be able to say

yes or no to whatever proposal

came before her.

“We have to make sure that

the wording that goes in front

of the minister is the wording

that will solve the problem,” Ms

Dalziel said.

There was no time frame on

how long Dr Woods would

consult on the proposal, but in

past instances, it had taken up to

four weeks.

However, Ms Dalziel stressed

that it was “technically” possible

for the clause to be in the District

Plan by Christmas.

“We believe this is a simple fix

so there shouldn’t be any delay.”

Fellow board member Darrell

could come back to the city

council “in a matter of weeks,

not months.”

Ms Dalziel said the process

could only be sped up to a point,

as there was a set process under

section 71.

community to understand that

we will do everything we can, as

IF YOU’RE drinking a beer

over summer, it may as well be

for a good cause.

A limited one-off brew

from Two Thumbs Brewing

Co, set to be released next

month, will raise money

for the restoration of the

Governors Bay jetty.

Brewery owner and

Governors Bay resident

Mark Limber said it was

“a bit of no-brainer” to

combine his love of brewing

with a passion for his

community.

“Everybody wants a beer for

Christmas, it may as well be

for a good cause.”

Cases of the yet to be named

and labelled “jetty beer” are

available for pre-order.

All profits will go towards

the restoration of the jetty,

with Two Thumbs only

recouping the cost of labour

and ingredients.

The recipe was known as a

steam beer, using yeast strands

that normally favoured cooler

temperatures in a hot brewing

process.

“It’s something light,

between a pale ale and a lager.”

Mr Limber said his brewery

had released a similar recipe

last summer which “went

down so well.”

“I just thought this would be

ideal.”

The mix was fermenting

last week, and was put into a

conditioning tank this week

where it would stay for a

further two to three weeks.

“That’s when all the flavour

starts developing.”

Only one 800-litre batch

will be brewed, which would

equate to 129 cases of 12

500ml bottles.

“Once those 129 cases are

gone, it’s gone,” Mr Limber

said.

The jetty was an “icon” in

the area, Mr Limber said. It

has been there for more than

100 years and was closed after

the earthquakes.

Mr Limber said the

Governors Bay Jetty Trust

estimated it could restore the

jetty for $3 million.

The city council has agreed

to match the trust with up to

$1.5 million in funding.

The trust had arranged with

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Summer tipple brewing for

Governors Bay jetty fund

the city council to purchase

the jetty for the nominal fee

of $1. It would then sell

the jetty back for the same

price once renovations are

complete.

Mr Limber said the group

had applied for grants to fund

the work and needed $600,000

from the community –

$200,000 of which they had

already raised.

MORE THAN 90 cruise

ships will weigh anchor

season but plans are in

on local residents and the

town’s infrastructure.

The first cruise ship, the

Majestic Princess, arrived

Princess, sails into the

harbour on April 13 next

Akaroa will host two

ships in one day on 10 occasions

arrive in the Banks Peninsula

Environment Survey

Between 60 and 80 per

cent of the online survey’s

2350 respondents said

they had visited the Port

Hills, Heathcote River or

Banks Peninsula’s bays

and harbours in the last 12

months.

Around 85 per cent said

they visited Christchurch

and Banks Peninsula’s natural

areas for recreational

purposes such as walking

and cycling.

The survey was conducted

between May 11

and June 11 and the results

would be used to help

inform city council decisions.

It also sought feedback

on environmental and

biodiversity issues, natural

environments, waterway

quality and amenity,

responsibility and actions,

and climate change.

More than half of the

respondents described

managed to help tourists

enjoy their time on shore

but also ease any pressure

on the local area.

“We know that the area

around the Akaroa Wharf

gets very busy on cruise

ship days,” Mr Rendall

said.

“We work to manage

this often congested area

to ensure safety, while also

helping visitors to make

the most of local tours and

activities.”

Each ship visit required

a targeted traffic management

plan, including parking

restrictions.

“We also oversee the

licensing of operators

while keeping activity and

tour sales separate from

departure points so that

we don’t have people milling

around in the main

pedestrian traffic areas,”

survey highlighted that

local residents valued their

natural environment and

were prepared to play their

OUTCRY: A proposal to close the squash courts at Lyttelton Recreation Centre

has been delayed by four months. ​

Decision on Lyttelton squash

court delayed four months

• By Matt Salmons

•From page 1

“It’s looking really positive. If they’re

happy, that’s pretty much it,” Mr Bruce

said.

If approved, the group could “slip the

moorings” and head out to the harbour.

If not, the process would “start all over

again.”

“And once that works it’s hopefully sea

trials. And then if all goes well and the

authorities deem the ship safe we’ll get our

passenger licence reinstated.”

To ready the engines, stokers would

hand shovel around three tonnes of coal

each day at a cost of $400 a tonne.

John Filsell

A DECISION on the fate of Lyttelton’s

squash court has been delayed for another

four months.

The city council considered temporarily

closing the Lyttelton Recreation Centre’s

squash court to trial a community gym in

partnership with Project Lyttelton.

However, city council head of

community support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell said

there had “not been any decision”

to close the remaining court.

Rather it was decided to look at

usage over a period of four months.

“Four months takes us into

the new year and provides an opportunity

to evaluate where we are

and consider the matter in an open and

constructive manner. It is a milestone, not

a deadline.”

Over the period, bookings would be

monitored and players are encouraged to

make greater use of the facility.

“The squash court usage will be evaluated

against other potential community

uses for the space,” Mr Filsell said.

He said it provided the “squash community

with an opportunity to promote

the use of the facility, while allowing the

city council’s partnership with Project Lyttelton

to focus on activating the recreation

centre.” After Project Lyttelton’s proposal

to close and replace the court with a gym

proved unpopular with some residents

in August, the city council said it would

consider the views of the community, and

squash players in particular.

Since then, 89 submissions were received

on the squash court, 19 from people

identified as having used the court.

In August, Project Lyttelton

chairwoman Margaret Jefferies told

Bay Harbour News it had surveyed

about 130 people to find how they

used the centre.

The results indicated there was

“hardly anyone” using the squash

court who registered, she said. But

the group later discovered some people

were using them unofficially.

A number of Lyttelton squash players

had taken to Facebook to criticise the move

and lack of consultation.

Concerns have been raised that closing

the court could effectively kill off the sport

in Lyttelton, as the nearest city councilowned

squash court are in Sockburn.

•A squash ladder tournament has recently

started in Lyttelton. Details

NEW: The Predator Free Bays stall opened for the first time at the weekend at

the Mt Pleasant Farmers’ Market.

Market stall opens up

chance to trap pests

• By Matt Salmons

TRAPPING PESTS in the Port Hills has

become a lot easier thanks to a new stall at

the Mt Pleasant Farmers’ Market.

The Predator Free Bays stall appeared at

the market at the weekend

and will continue to be there

until Christmas at least. It is

being staffed by volunteers.

Predator Free Mt

Pleasant co-ordinator

Derek McCullough said the

weekend had been a success

for the group, with about 30

more people signing up to

trap pests in the area.

“It went really well and we

had a good turn out.”

He said a demonstration

Goodnature trap “smashing”

bananas had been “a crowdpleaser”.

Mr McCullough said the movement had

“really taken off” in the Port Hills area

over the last six months.

“It allows people to come and get their

traps, record their kills, talk to other trappers

about what’s working and what’s not.”

He said interest in conservation has

increased as people become more aware of

Derek McCullough

the Predator Free programme.

“People didn’t realise that just by setting

up a trap, they could be part of the solution.”

Mr McCullough believed there were

more than 100 trappers in Mt Pleasant,

Redcliffs and Sumner. He said

he had received a lot of feedback

from people interested in where

they could get traps.

The stall would now operate

as a hub for people interested in

trapping in the area, as previously

the community mostly met

online.

“It’s good to get the visibility

and to get people involved and

talking to other trappers.”

New trappers may get discouraged

if they can’t get any feedback

or advice, he said.

Most traps available at the stall

cost about $20-$30, with more intricate

designs costing up to $100.

“There’ll be a range of traps available.

The two big predators we’re after are rats

and possums.”​

Mr McCullough said the group would

look at continuing the stall in the new year

depending on numbers and sales. “If it

maintains interest, we definitely will.”

PEST: Possums

and rats are

the main

predators

targeted by

trappers in the

Mt Pleasant,

Redcliffs and

Sumner areas.

Bird bath welcomed at

eco-burial cemetery

• By Matt Salmons

A COMMUNITY-MADE memorial bird

bath was blessed and officially welcomed

at Diamond Harbour Cemetery on

Monday.

While the bird bath has been in place for

more than a week, 15 Diamond Harbour

residents gathered to bless it by taking

turns to speak about its meaning and fill

the bowl with water.

Creator and Green Burials Group member

Anne van der Kooi said the inclusion

of the bird bath completed the eco-burial

area. “I feel really good about it. It has a

calming effect.”

She said the idea for the bird bath had

first come up at a meeting last year.

At the time, Mrs van der Kooi had a

block of Ōāmaru stone in her garden

which she planned to turn into a bird bath

for her own garden. “But I thought, I could

gift this to the community.”

The group arranged for another block of

the stone to be bought for the top section,

and after getting advice from a local potter,

Mrs van der Kooi began shaping the

bird bath herself.

She said it was designed to reflect the

natural cycle of life, with the circular

shape of the bath itself evoking a sense of

“never-ending.”

“I think it’s really peaceful. You’re born,

you live, you die, and your body goes back

to the earth.”

Mrs van der Kooi said the bird bath

would fill naturally with rainwater, but a

nearby tap meant visitors to the cemetery

could top it up in drier periods.

She said it was “really nice to see” her

creation grow as she worked on it each day

over two months. The stone was not too

difficult for an amateur to work with, she

said.

“It’s fairly giving, you don’t have to

The proposed targeted

rate for the Akaroa

health centre funding

not only lacks rationale

but is a concept rife with

anomalies.

The $1.3 million

proposed rate for 3000

ratepayers over four years

appears to fall short of

the required $2.5 million

required by community

funding for this venture.

Both of these amounts,

being vague projections

in terms of the actual amounts needed

and the required duration, would cause

many to query actual mandates within

the Akaroa health centre in respect to the

actual required future funding.

It would be demeaning for private home

and holiday home owners to subsidise

funding for this facility which, being

under the realm of public infrastructure,

BLESSING: Community members

by taking turns pouring water into its

bowl.

apply much force.” A keen advocate for

eco-burial, Mrs van der Kooi said the bird

bath was better where it was, rather than

in her own garden as she had planned.

“I think I will be there longer than here,”

she said.

The group finished Monday’s ceremony

with a picnic.

DESIGN:

An artist’s

impression

of the new

Akaroa health

centre.

Reader Gary Knight disagrees with a call for a targeted rate in Akaroa to

help fund the construction of its new health centre

should have the cost

borne from the council

coffers.

The criteria of the city

council’s 2015-2025 Long

Term Plan to operate

grants as a contributory

factor towards

community building is

surely the catalyst for

the required funding for

this community-focused

venture as merely an

added city council anchor

project.

Within this context, reality must prevail

to ensure that Akaroa ratepayers, devoid

of essential services and amenities such

as street lighting and rubbish collections,

have a voice over this issue through an

absolute public consultation process,

which may raise the issue of an imposed

future tourist tariff for the benefit of

Akaroa.

Hutchison-Thomas was one of

four Christchurch designers

to take home awards from

the World of Wearable Arts

competition.

Mrs Hutchison-Thomas won

the New Zealand Design Award

for her garment Eye See you

Fluffy Kōwhai.

She said the design was inspired

by the venezuelan poodle

moth and was made of faux fur

and crystals.

“I was drawn to the poodle

moth with its beautiful fluffy

body, which reminds me of

luxurious opera cloaks from the

1920s,” she said.

More than 3500 crystals were

sown into the design to represent

the eye-like colours often seen

on the wings of moths and butterflies.

WOW founder and head Judge

Dame Suzie Moncrieff said

judges described Eye See you

Fluffy Kōwhai as “surreal and

sensuous.”

“The different mediums

used in the construction of

the garment are balanced

beautifully.”

Christchurch central sisters

Natasha English and Tatyanna

Meharry won the Supreme

Award with WAR sTOrY, as well

as winning the Aotearoa section.

The garment commemorated

the more than 120,000 New

Zealand men and women who

served in World War 1, of which

more than 18,000 never returned

home.

It was created using recycled

objects such as old military and

household blankets, salvaged

rimu from demolished houses,

old collected plastic toy soldiers,

broken crushed red bricks and

traded pieces of pounamu.

More than 150 nearby

residents toured the station on

Saturday afternoon.

Fire and Emergency chairman

“This modern station is

The new Woolston station was

built on the site of the former

station at a total cost of $6.9 million.

More than 900 piles were

driven in to strengthen the site,

which is 1.2m higher than it was

before.

It features two appliance

bays, six single bedrooms, a

gym, kitchen and lounge and

purpose-built dirty-to-clean

zones.

There, firefighters could bag

Fire brigade’s secret weapon

Governors Bay volunteer

firefighters call deputy chief Stu

Weaver their secret weapon.

The 58-year-old caught up with

Matt Salmons to talk about

the Port Hills fire, training days

and why he has been with the

brigade for 16 years

Where did you grow up?

I was born just outside of Birmingham,

England, in the West Midlands. I had

a pretty normal childhood, went to the

local school, that kind of thing. When

I got married we lived in a place called

Kenilworth, just outside of Coventry. I

was a self-employed electrician. I still am.

Well, technically, I’m the service manager

for Prolec, but still in the same game.

Tell me about your family.

I’ve got a wife Gail and two sons, both

are in the Governors Bay Volunteers Fire

Brigade. My 25-year-old son Richard is in

the rural part and a trainee builder. My

younger son, Harry, he’s a chef and in the

urban side of the department.

When did you move to New Zealand?

In 1996. I just fancied a change – getting

away from the rat race, to be honest.

Simple as that. We landed in Auckland

and toured all around New Zealand for

six weeks. We just liked the look of things

here. Before we knew it, we’d bought a

section in Governors Bay, built a house,

and we’ve been here ever since. It was two

days after my eldest’s third birthday, so

moving here was not exactly popular with

the grandparents at the time, but they

came around. We just love it. As soon as

you come over those hills, you feel the day

lift off your shoulders. It’s like going on

holiday every night.

When did you get involved with the

fire brigade?

I’ve been involved 16 years now. I

was always asking neighbours who

were involved what was going on and,

eventually, I got myself organised and

went around. It’s nice to do something for

your community, but it’s also a good place

to meet like-minded people. In the early

days, there was a lot of hands-on, practical

stuff. Being a sparky I’m more into that. It

gave me a bit of a buzz, bit of excitement.

When did your family get involved?

Richard was all for it from a very

early age. He’d hang around the station

whenever he could. He joined on his 16th

birthday and just loved it from day one. I

always knew he would join. My youngest,

Harry, I honestly didn’t think he’d be too

bothered. But no, he turned up on his 16th

birthday as well. As for Gail, she’s involved

in helping out by default really.

Are you proud that it’s a family affair?

I am really. It’s good that they

understand the demands. With the boys

joining, the three of us rush down the

stairs at the same time when the siren goes

off, trying to get out the door first.

What has been your biggest call-out?

That’s got to be the Port Hills fire.

Where I started off was the second fire,

over at Marleys Hill. I was the officer

in charge there, while chief fire officer

Andrew Norris went off to sort out water.

That was a bit of an experience. The

wind was blowing quite viciously and we

decided then and there that we weren’t

going to put the fire out, it was beyond

that, even with helicopters. Our job was

to stop it coming over the road and into

Governors Bay. It was quite a long night. I

remember some of the rural guys literally

stomping with their boots and shovels

on ashes as they blew over the road. They

were just that determined that it wouldn’t

get a hold on that side of the hill. The

second night I was on the water tanker,

driving around the new bike park. You

could see the trees suddenly igniting in

this big ‘v’ shape, all in flames in seconds.

It was an incredible sight, something I’ll

never forget.

What was the community response

like?

The response from the locals you’d

have to see to believe it. People were just

dropping boxes of food off, boxes of beer

off, saying thanks very much and walking

away. I’ve never seen anything like it. You

had four days where we just lived at the

station, supplied by the locals. They just

kept turning up. It was quite humbling.

When did you become the deputy?

I’m not sure off the top of my head –

about 18 months ago, I think. Maybe

it’s been two years. Time goes fast. I

remember having the white helmet passed

to me. Steve Kennedy, the assistant area

commander, came over to hand it over. It’s

not something I expected. When I joined,

the chief and deputy had been there for a

long time and I thought it would just carry

on.

What does the role involve?

Normally it’s a training role, but we’ve

got a training committee, so I’ve avoided

that. I’ve been the treasurer for about 12

years. Funnily enough, the AGM comes

around each year and nobody else wants

the job. That’s a pretty busy role. Being

deputy is more just helping to organise

things and you go to meetings with the

other chiefs and deputies every quarter.

There is some responsibility. The other

guys, when something happens, they look

to you and expect you to know the answer.

How was the recent training day?

That was Andrew’s idea about five or six

years ago. The main point is to give those

down the ranks a chance to have a go in

the officer’s seat. Being a volunteer brigade,

you can’t guarantee an officer will turn

up, so anybody may need to fill the role, it

happens. It’s simulated, but we make it as

realistic as we can.

What did you organise this year?

A large, simulated house burn. We filled

the old St Cuthbert’s Church vicarage

with smoke so people could go in there to

do a search and rescue. We tried to keep

everyone busy, put them through their

paces. It’s nice to do an actual practice

house burn, but you don’t get many of

those. After lunch, I was the officer in

charge at the rescue at the quarry. In the

morning, we kept everyone busy with a lot

of short scenarios and we’re thinking we

might go more that way next year.

Did Mt Herbert Parish have any

problems with you smoking out the

vicarage?

It’s no longer in use and needs some

tender loving care, shall we say. So, in the

meantime, they generously let us borrow it

from time to time. It’s an empty building

and until they raise some money and fix

it up, it will remain empty. A real houseburn

when you do get them is a whole-day

thing. We burn them down room by

room, it’s great training. But with a couple

of smoke machines, you couldn’t see the

other side of the room, so it did simulate it

very well.

What would you like to see for the

future of the brigade?

We’ve built a new storage shed out the

back so I’d like to see the landscaping

done to finish that off. Allegedly, over

Christmas, fingers-crossed, we’ll get a new

appliance which would be great. As for

what I’ll be doing, well, maybe the chief’s

job? Not that I’m gunning for it. But you

never know,

Andrew might hang around for a long

time and he’s very welcome to it. I would

also like to get people involved, not

necessarily to fight fires, but with other

positions like medical or managerial roles.

People expect us to fight fires, but it’s so

much more than that now.

BUZZ: Stu Weaver says being part

of the Governors Bay Volunteer Fire

Brigade provides “a bit of excitement”.

Getting through disasters together

Communities

get through

the tough

times better

together, writes

Heathcote

Ward city

councillor Sara

Templeton

A RECENT survey has suggested

Christchurch residents are not

prepared for another disaster,

with only 47 per cent storing

enough water for their household

for three days.

This has caused concern and

consternation among some

circles.

Yet we are more prepared

than we have ever been. Water

and food storage is not the only

measure of preparedness for

disaster. As well we know, most

people did not have these stores

in place in 2011, and yet we

found that we coped.

But we didn’t cope alone as

the survey suggests we would.

We coped as communities. We

banded together, connected,

sourced resources and shared

what we had. It was a human

response and one we will repeat

again if needed.

We do need these supplies. We

also need to keep them up-todate

and having enough water

for three days for your household

is really important – but it’s not

all doom and gloom.

Many of our communities now

have community resilience or

response plans, where locals have

identified hazards, worked out

what resources are needed and

planned a response.

We saw this at work in

November 2016, when the Mt

Pleasant community operated

its own response centre at the

local school, looking after those

who needed it and staffed by

volunteers.

I have recently been in

Indonesia at a conference

focussed on disaster risk

reduction and the key thing

that came through was the

importance of community to any

planning.

Connected communities can

respond to a disaster in a way

that Government cannot and

supporting them to plan ahead of

time is important.

They also recover better

afterwards. It’s also important

that these plans are sustainable

and do not simply sit on a shelf.

Local government cannot look

after everyone in a time of crisis,

but we can help communities

plan and stay connected.

That work is a priority for the

city council, and we help by

providing facilities, community

grants and staff time to support

groups to develop and maintain

response plans.

So now that we’re in daylight

saving, when you check your

fire alarms and when we test

the tsunami sirens, check your

emergency kit too.

Make sure your supplies aren’t

out of date, that you have enough

water stored – and have a chat

with your neighbours as well.

TOGETHER: Sara Templeton

says communities can

respond better to disasters

like earthquakes when they

work together.

Time to get your boat back on the water

As spring starts,

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch gives a few

safety tips for getting

back out on the water

YET ANOTHER month has

passed by, spring is in the air and

more of you are getting out and

about on the water. This is great

to see, what a fantastic resource

we have on our doorstep.

I have a couple of reminders

this month and, as usual, they

relate to safety.

For those of you who

paddleboard, please remember

that you are required to wear a

personal flotation device when

on the water unless you are

physically involved in breaking

waves (surfing). If this is the

case, you must have a leg rope

attached.

The second reminder relates

to the annual favourite, personal

flotation devices (PFDs). Have

you checked yours since last

season? If it is an inflatable one,

have you: Checked the outer

cover for holes and signs of

wear? Orally inflated the bladder

and left it inflated for 24 hours?

If it deflates, you should either

replace it or take it to a reputable

boat shop for repair. Have you

checked the gas cylinder for

corrosion? Make sure it has not

been used and it is screwed in

firmly.

If your PFD is not an inflatable

Pirate’s Corner

type, make sure: It has no signs

of wear and tear. Put it in a

bath full of water overnight

and make sure it is still floating

in the morning. If there is any

water ingress, the jacket must

be replaced. If the life jacket is

a kapok-filled one, it should not

be used. Check out the Maritime

New Zealand media release,

dated 7 July 2018, in relation

to this type of jacket (www.

maritimenz.govt.nz/public/

news/media-releases-2018/).

It advises boaties that old life

jackets with kapok filling or

cotton straps are unsafe, are

likely to fail when used and

should be destroyed.

If in doubt, get your PFD

checked by an authorised dealer

and, if you’re still in doubt,

throw it out.

Lastly, remember your PFD

must be the correct fit – it should

be comfortably snug, but not too

tight. A well-fitting jacket will

feel like a firm handshake. A

crotch strap should be used with

all PFDs.

That’s it from me for this

month, be safe out there and

make the most of the nice days.

Bay Harbour teens run

for youth cancer cause

SCHOOLS

• By Matt Salmons

THIRTEEN students from

Sumner, Redcliffs and Heathcote

returned home from a gruelling

but rewarding adventure on

Monday.

The teenagers, who attend St

Bede’s and Marian colleges, ran

25km a day for five days through

the heart of the South Island

in the Run For A Life event,

arriving back home on Monday

night.

The event supported CanTeen,

with each runner individually

raising money. Overall

about $100,000 was raised

for the youth cancer support

organisation.

Last week, 160 pupils and

40 staff set off from St Bede’s

College to start their five-day

trip back.

Sumner parent Jim Stenberg

travelled with his two sons

Josh, 17, and Charlie, 15, who

ran from Aoraki/Mt Cook to St

Bede’s.

He said the teens were

humbled by the experience and

it was great to arrive at St Bede’s

College where their family and

friends were waiting to welcome

them back.

“They [the runners] all knew

how much they had achieved

and they got there. Some of them

were quite emotional.”

CLOSE: Teenagers from the Bay Harbour area were among a

group running in an event to raise money for CanTeen.

Mr Stenberg said the journey

had been fantastic. “We’ve been

billeted, put up and people

have fed us along the way.

The community spirit, it’s just

massive. It blows you away.”

He said people had

approached the runners to

donate to the cause as they

ran.

Small groups of about 20

runners took on each route,

taking turns to run 5km.

Over the course of each day,

the groups covered 100km.

“They know it’s only a short

period of suffering compared

to these kids who actually have

cancer.” Mr Stenberg said he was

“very proud” of the efforts of

his sons and their fellow

runners.

“I actually had [bowel cancer]

myself, which is why I really

wanted to come on the trip with

them.”

He said initially only Charlie

was running, but their cousin

was recently diagnosed with

leukaemia, spurring Josh to join

his brother.

“They want to do it for (their

cousin) as well. That’s the biggest

thing about it, making everyone

aware of how big it is,” Mr

Stenberg said.

a supply of eggs from the

chickens.

They select recipes to cook

and divide the tasks up

among the class members

and parent helpers.

At lunchtime, as delicious

smells waft out of the school

kitchen, the pupils say a

karakia kai (prayer) and the

class eats together before inviting

other students to share

their culinary creations.

Mt Pleasant Yacht Club

Bruce Ansley retraces the path of the doomed

surveyor John Whitcombe across the Southern

Alps, follows the raiding party of the northern chief

Te Puoho along the West Coast, sails around New

Zealand’s northern and southern capes; walks through

the Valley under the Two Thumb Range to the mythical

Mesopotamia; drives from Waiheke to Wanaka (in a hurry), sets off

on a hunt for the South Island’s Grey Ghost, looks deep into the heart

of volcanic New Zealand and tracks our most unlikely hero, the prison

escaper George Wilder.

November Road

by Lou Berney

Set against the assassination of JFK, a poignant and evocative crime novel

that centres on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America –

a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of

second chances from the Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and

Faraway Gone.

Frank Guidry’s luck has finally run out…A loyal street lieutenant to

New Orleans’ mob boss Carlos Marcello, Guidry knows too much about the

crime of the century: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Within hours of JFK’s murder, everyone with ties to Marcello is turning up

dead. Suspecting he’s next, Guidry hits the road to Las Vegas. When he

spots a beautiful housewife and her two young daughters stranded on the

side of the road, he sees the perfect disguise to cover his tracks from the

hit men on his trail. The two strangers share the open road west – and

find each other on the way. But Guidry’s relentless hunters are closing in

on him, and now he doesn’t want to just survive, he wants to really live,

maybe for the first time.

Everyone’s expendable, or they should be, but Guidry just can’t throw away

the woman he’s come to love. And it might get them both killed.
