65-year-old

pulled out

of burning

home by

neighbour

• By Sophie Cornish

A SYDENHAM woman has

spoken about how she battled

“unbearable heat” when pulling

a 65-year-old neighbour from his

burning home.

It was just after 9am on September

29 when Bernadine Worsdale

looked out of her window to see

smoke billowing from the property

next door. She sprinted outside

in her pyjamas and saw another

neighbour running towards her,

who phoned 111.

“I was focusing on my neighbour

and thinking get him out,”

said Mrs Worsdale.

Mrs Worsdale ran to the front

window of the burning house on

Scott St.

She pulled it ajar before yelling

for her neighbour, who she didn’t

wish to name.

“I think he was sleeping, if I

hadn’t of known his name, he may

have not woken up and responded

. . . it was so intense, I hate fire, the

heat was unbearable.”

He appeared a bit “dazed and

confused,” said Mrs Worsdale

who then helped to pull him out

of the window.

“I tried to get him to jump but

he couldn’t. I pulled him from

under the armpits and dragged

him out of the window.”

A TOP job by Bernadine Worsdale to

probably save a chap’s life (see page 1).

Bernadine battled unbearable heat to

alert her dozing neighbour that his house

was on fire.

People react differently in times of crisis or emergency. Some

will freeze; others will react like Bernadine did. It all depends

on how we are wired.

So for Bernadine’s neighbour, he is very lucky she was wired

to act. In spite of the heat, she prised open a window and yelled

at him.

“I think he was sleeping, if I hadn’t of known his name, he

may have not woken up and responded . . . it was so intense, I

hate fire, the heat was unbearable.”

Good stuff Bernadine.

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.

It was reported last month

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

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 on September 24.

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 that 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.

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 Southshore and Redcliffs

to build or renovate on vacant

property.

The city council recently

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

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

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.

Darrell

Latham

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.

deputation from the

community boards

said they wanted the process to

be hastened.

“We believe this is a simple

fix so there shouldn’t be any

delay.”

Fellow board member Darrell

Latham said the draft proposal

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

fast as we can,” she said.

Improvements likely for bus hub

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

MORE THAN $1 million has

been earmarked for a bus hub

and safety improvements outside

Eastgate Mall.

The money has been moved

from the balance of funding for

safety improvements from the

Buckleys Rd, Linwood Ave and

Aldwins Rd intersection following

the release of the Linwood-

Eastgate Area

Integrated

Transport

Study.

City councillor

Sara

Templeton said

people heading

Yani

Johanson

through the bus

stop “deserve

better” than

its current state when the plan

was approved during Thursday’s

council meeting.

“For many years we have

heard from the Linwood community

that the bus facilities on

Buckleys Rd are not appropriate.

It is the third busiest suburban

bus interchange in the city.”

However, Peter Jasper told

the city council residents along

the stretch of Buckleys Rd near

the bus stop found accessing to

their properties difficult due to

frequency of buses.

“It would be irresponsible

to spend ratepayer money on

more,” he said.

Mr Jasper said putting in a

de facto bus hub lacked “any

shred of commonsense and

common decency” towards

home owners and residents.

The bus stops in front of

Eastgate cater up to 30 buses

per hour and board up to 1500

passengers per day, rivalling

Northlands Shopping Centre.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson also questioned

whether taking the funding

from the intersection safety

improvement was the right thing

to do.

“The issue here is that we are

robbing a safety intersection

improvement that we publicly

consulted on during out LTP to

pay for a public transport hub

where there is still not a clear

idea about what that public

transport hub will look like.”

However, city council staff

said the safety improvements

had been completed and the $1.1

million was leftover.

Cr Johanson would not

support moving the funding

without public consultation

or before Environment

SAFETY: $1.1

million has

been set aside

for a new bus

hub outside

Eastgate Mall. •From page 1

Canterbury’s Regional Public

Transport Plan had been

released as it could impact the

Eastgate area.

Staff said there was work that

could be done that “would not

be undone” following the plan’s

release and other construction

would not be done before the

plan was finalised.

“There is still a need for the

pedestrian crossing and other

safety measures to be undertaken

like tactiles, etc.”

First on the upgrade schedule

is a signalised crossing between

bus stops on Buckleys Rd, staff

said.

Artwork to

A PIECE of an artwork celebrating

suffrage will be made at a free

Dunedin artist Janet de Wagt

will host the free art workshop,

supported by Heritage New Zealand,

as part of the Rewind event

this Sunday at Ferrymead Heritage

Park.

Participants will create a commemorative

banner that will be

joined with other banners made

in other workshops at key heritage

locations around the country over

the next few months.

The artwork will be launched at

the Old Government Buildings in

Wellington in April 2019.

Heritage New Zealand’s Rosemary

Baird said the banners were

a reference to the three Parliamentary

petitions that circulated

around the country, resulting in

women being granted the right to

vote on September 19, 1893.

All materials will be provided

at the workshop and a colouringin

competition for children will

take place in the same space, with

prizes presented in the afternoon.

Bird bath welcomed at 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 ecoburial

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 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.

BLESSING: Community

members blessed the new

bird bath on Monday by taking

turns pouring water into

its bowl.

Help out a

penguin on

Southshore

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SOUTHSHORE families will

come together to build new nests

for penguins.

The Southshore Residents’

Association is organising the

event on October 20, which aims

to teach families about penguin

habitats in the area.

Last week the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board granted $1000

from its discretionary response

fund to go towards the project.

The building of the nests will be

led by city council coastal rangers,

while New Brighton Menz Shed

members will pre-cut the wood.

Residents’ association

chairwoman Lynda Burdekin

hopes it will encourage

more penguins to nest in the

area.

The event will be held from

10am-2pm at the South Brighton

Community Centre on Beatty St

and will include a community

picnic.

Older children will be involved

in building the nesting boxes,

while there will be a range of

penguin-focused activities for

younger children.

Cruise ship season under way

MORE THAN 90 cruise ships

will weigh anchor in Akaroa

Harbour this season but plans

are in place to lessen the impact

on local residents and the town’s

infrastructure.

The first cruise ship, the Majestic

Princess, arrived yesterday

and the last for the season, the

Golden Princess, sails into the

harbour on April 13 next year.

Akaroa will

host two ships

in one day on

10 occasions

during the season

and three

ships will visit

the town on

Bruce

Rendall

February 11.

On the busiest

day, up to

5500 passengers may arrive in

the Banks Peninsula harbour.

City council head of facilities,

property and planning Bruce

Rendall said each cruise ship

visit was 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,” Mr Rendall

said.

“Equally importantly,” Mr

Rendall said the city council

worked with cruise ship companies

to minimise the cost to

ratepayers.

Funding was also recently

secured by the city council towards

new toilet facilities to ease

the impact on local amenities in

the future.

SMOOTH

SAILING:

The city

council

says there

are plans

in place to

handle the

cruise ship

season.

New figures show that, overall,

New Zealand’s cruise sector

has climbed in value by 18 per

cent to $434 million in the year

to June.

Meanwhile, work was under

way on New Zealand’s first

custom-built cruise ship berth

in Lyttelton.

The massive project is due to

be completed by the 2020-2021

summer cruise season.

Peninsula popular playground

THE FIRST Life in

Christchurch Natural

Environment Survey has

shown the beaches, rivers and

harbours of Banks Peninsula are

the favoured playgrounds for

Cantabrians.

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 their

understanding of environmental

issues in Christchurch and

Banks Peninsula as good or very

good.

However, only 44 per cent

rated their understanding of

biodiversity as good or very

good.

City council monitoring

and research team leader Kath

Jamieson said the survey highlighted

that local residents valued

their natural environment

and were prepared to play their

part in protecting and nurturing

the region.

“The biennial survey shows

that 97 per cent of respondents

agree or strongly agree that the

city’s natural flora and fauna,

and landscapes need to be

protected for future generations

while 95 per cent see native

bush, tussock land and wetlands

as important to the region’s

identity,” she said.

While surface water and

the quality of riverbanks were

viewed as being in the poorest

condition, Ms Jamieson said

the city council was pleased

that around 30 per cent said

they had volunteered for conservation

work in the past 12

months.

That included picking up

rubbish, weeding or taking part

in community planting.

Fire rages, homes at risk

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 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.

They said there was no suggestion

it had “anything to do with

NZ Post” staff and the matter was

being investigated.

HEARING HELP IN HORNBY

How is your hearing?

In New Zealand, one in six people have some degree of hearing difficulty.

Over the age of 60, more than half the population are living with a

significant hearing reduction. This invisible condition can be incredibly

frustrating, as conversation on a one to one basis can be no problem, but

social situations become very uncomfortable indeed. Background noise

can make conversation almost impossible to follow causing some

sufferers to remove themselves from the conversation, or even avoid

going to the social function completely.

Other early signs of hearing difficulty are a creeping up of the volume

control on the TV, frequently asking family and friends to repeat

themselves, or accusing people of mumbling when they speak. With

hearing loss recently being linked to the early onset of Dementia in studies

throughout the world, these early signs are not to be ignored.

Hear Again have extensive experience of helping people overcome their

hearing difficulties. From a simple check to see if your ears are blocked

with wax, to the provision and fine tuning of the very latest hearing devices

from the worlds leading hearing aid manufacturers, the friendly team are

here to help, even if you need to be seen on a weekend.

Neil Hardisty, NZAS Audiometrist, has been expertly overcoming hearing

difficulties for residents of Christchurch since 2009. Neil is frequently

praised for his limitless patience, wonderful caring nature and ability to

solve problems which other clinicians have deemed impossible. Neil is

never satisfied until you are. His expertise, coupled with Customer

Service Advisors Christine and Louise with their welcoming, friendly

nature, and the very latest technology make for a winning combination.

Hear Again offer FREE no obligation initial hearing assessments. If you,

or any of your loved ones have noticed any difficulties with your hearing,

this can be quickly and painlessly checked for you at The Hub, 418 Main

South Road, Hornby. If you already have hearing aids from any

manufacturer, we will give them a FREE clean and check to ensure they

are in tip top condition. Call 03 974 1658 to book your free check.

We look forward to delighting you with our service and help you, or your

loved ones make the most of your hearing and to rejoin the conversation.

Bringing outer-space

to the central city

• By Sophie Cornish

HANNAH BEEHRE has

brought outer-space to the

central city.

As part of SCAPE Public Art’s

20th-anniversary season, Beehre’s

display Tunnel hopes to captivate

viewers for the next six weeks.

Nestled deep inside the Canterbury

Museum, the display creates

a walk-through rendering of a

nebula – clouds of gas and dust

from outer space, visible in the

night sky.

It will form the entrance to the

exhibition Wildlife Photographer

of the Year and is expected

to bring 60,000 visitors over the

exhibition period.

It is constructed from dyed silk

velvet with Swarovski crystals,

LED lights and mirrored flooring.

The 41-year-old artist moved

to Christchurch from Auckland

in 1998 to study at Canterbury

University’s School of Fine Arts.

She completed her degree in

2000 but has now returned to

complete a masters degree in

painting.

Beehre says her five-year-old

daughter, Parker, is her biggest

fan.

“She’s really excited about it,

she asked me if we could go

through it holding hands. I feel

like I am making the work for

her as well. So I am excited to see

her reaction. She’s my biggest fan,

she’s really sweet. Sometimes she

will point out: ‘Oh that bit is not

right’.’’

Last Friday marked the opening

of SCAPE’s 20th-anniversary

season, the display will be on

show for six weeks.

The trust has installed 216 temporary

artworks and 14 permanent

artworks in the city, since its

formation in 1998.

Some of the most notable

works include Nucleus by Phil

Price on the corners of Manchester,

High and Lichfield

streets, Fanfare by Neil Dawson

OUT OF THIS WORLD: Hannah Beehre with her art installation

Galaxy of Magic at the museum.

ON DISPLAY: Two more sculptures, Mixed Feelings and

Notable artworks for this

season include a 5.5.m bronze

heron, and Three Squares Gyratory

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 first appeared

at the market on

September 29 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.”

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.”

Surreal design wins award

MT PLEASANT’S Tina

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.

WINNER: Tina

Dame Suzie said WAR sTOrY

was “an exceptional example of

“flawless in its execution.”

Papanui’s Janice Elliott was

Woolston Fire Station opened

THE NEW Woolston Fire

Station has been officially

opened, it is the third of six

stations to be rebuilt.

Fire and Emergency chairman

Paul Swain, who opened the station,

said the February 22, 2011,

earthquake devastated the city’s

fire stations.

“This modern station is

another step in redeveloping

the metropolitan city’s entire

network of fire stations.”

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

smoke-contaminated gear in a

negative pressure environment

before showering to prevent

carcinogen transfer into clean

living and work areas.

The station also has a vehicle

fume management system, a

hose that connects to vehicle

exhausts, so the appliance bay

would not fill with fumes from

appliances coming and going.

The Woolston crew moved

back to the station in mid-June,

Age is no barrier to city cycling

Fire rages, homes at risk

EACH DAY in Christchurch

thousands of people use bicycles

for their commute, for fitness,

or just for fun. An increasing

number of those people are of

advancing years.

St Albans retiree Jean Bell

returned to cycling last year after

a long period without a bike. “I

was encouraged to try an e-bike,

and I was soon hooked on it,”

she said.

“It’s just so handy,” Jean explained.

“I’m surprised by how far I can

cycle when in the car the same

distance feels like a long way.’’

Visiting friends, attending

meetings, hairdresser and doctor

appointments – Jean travels to

them all by bike.

“It’s much easier to park my

bike than park the car,” she said.

“Now, driving with just one

person in my car feels decadent;

a bit naughty.”

The city’s geography

lends itself to getting around by

bike.

“Unlike Wellington or Auckland,

in Christchurch you have

a choice – cycle on the flat or

test yourself on the Port Hills,”

explains Julie Milne, who recently

cycled the length of New

Zealand to raise awareness of

stroke sufferers.

Julie rides to work year-round

on her modified bicycle; two

childhood strokes left her with

restricted arm movement.

“Cycling is my physical upkeep,”

she said.

“It improves my quality of getting

older. If I don’t bike, I seize

up, which then means I can’t

bike. So, I keep biking.”

Julie will be sharing her experiences

at the NZ Bike Expo

(Saturday and Sunday).

This cornerstone event of

the Biketober festival is where

cyclists of all ages can gather to

celebrate the cycle.

“The expo brings the cycling

industry and the Christchurch

community together,” said event

organiser Krissy O’Connor.

“It places cycling events, test

rides, and community groups

alongside commercial exhibitors.

It’s a very hands-on weekend of

everything bike-related.”

For Christchurch residents

who perhaps haven’t explored

much of the new-look central

city, Saturday’s Pedal into Spring

extravaganza of Biketober offers

twelve themed, self-guided rides

to choose from. Cafés, shops,

playgrounds, art, a family treasure

hunt – there’s a route for all ages.

“If you haven’t been on a bike

for a while,” says Julie Milne,

“start on a cycleway and go from

there. You’re safe. Cycling is

lovely.”

Summer tipple brewing for

Governors Bay jetty fund

• By Matt Salmons

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

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.

OUTCRY: A proposal to close the squash

courts at Lyttelton Recreation Centre has

been delayed by four months. ​

Squash court

decision delayed

• By Matt Salmons

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 John Filsell

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.

Concerns have been raised that closing

the court could effectively kill off the

sport in Lyttelton, as the nearest city

council-owned squash court are in

Sockburn.

Hillmorton rue lost chances on court

• By Jacob Page

THE Hillmorton High

senior boys basketball team

finished ninth at their national

tournament at Palmerston North

on Thursday.

The South Island single A

smaller schools champions were

left to rue early losses which saw

them tied with three teams for

TOUGH WEEK: Hillmorton

High School finished ninth

at the national tournament

in Palmerston North on

Thursday.

PHOTO: ANDREA KENDREW

the final top eight spot.

Unfortunately, they were

relegated to the bottom eight and

had to pick themselves up and

push for ninth.

Team manager Andrea

Kendrew said starting the

tournament with two losses was

far from ideal.

“I think the boys are pretty

gutted to be honest, but I was

proud of how they picked themselves

up and played hard to

finish ninth.”

The team were runners-up at

nationals last year and with most

of the team returning.

Their aim was to go one better,

but it was not to be. An 82-65

loss to Hamilton’s Nga Taiatea

Wharekura and s defeat to

Catholic Cathedral College 77-64

made things tricky for the team

and they never recovered.

“We’ve had other South Island

teams finish ahead of us but

that’s the nature of tournament

basketball.”

The team finished with a 65-53

win over Tai Wananga.

The team will lose six of its

squad next year, as they are all in

their final year of school.
