$1.2m plan for school site

Football fields

and skate park

in draft design

• By Louis Day

PLANS FOR a new $1.2 million

park on the old Redcliffs School

site have been released.

The city council has proposed

converting the site into a park

to compensate for the loss

of Redcliffs Park, which will

accommodate the new school.

The draft landscape plan is

open for public consultation

until December 17. Once

consultation has finished, the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board will make a

recommendation on the park’s

future to the city council.

It would be called Te Papa

Kura, a name gifted by local iwi.

Papa means park and kura can

mean both school and red.

One junior and one

intermediate football field,

a toilet, drinking fountain,

additional furniture and new

signage will all be added to the

park.

The existing playground,

furniture, car park and a

community building will be kept

on the site.

The site is also being

considered as a possible location

for a skate park as part of the

Bays Area Skate Project.

smaller.

“The new park will offer

Real Estate with Integrity

the same sport and recreation

opportunities as the former park

– sports fields, a playground,

a community building, toilets

and car parking. We will also be

adding a perimeter path.”

Ms Russell said the city council

was aiming to start and finish

construction next year, with the

football fields predicted to be

ready before winter.

However, Friends of Redcliffs

Park spokesman Chris Doudney

said the relocation of the park

and the school was “totally

pointless”.

“The old school site is on the

same side of the road to about

80 per cent of its pupils so kids

don’t have to cross the main road.

It’s also higher than the new site

which is a flood plain.”

Mr Doudney also has issues

with the plans for the new park.

“I’m glad they are keeping a

couple of the trees but I think

they should keep a few more. I

thought that they should move

one of the playing fields a bit

further away from the other one

so there is room to keep another

tree or two and to get a path

between the two playing fields.”

Mr Doudney said the best

thing the city council could do

was to move the school back to its

old site and leave Redcliffs Park

where it was.

THE WHEELS of progress are turning

very quickly at the old Redcliffs School site.

We report on page 1 today the plans for

the site, which include football fields and

landscaping.

It will be good use of the contentious

land.

Redcliffs doesn’t have a great deal of public space, so at least

sport and other activities can be played and held on the site.

It will be no consolation to Friends of Redcliffs Park which

has been trying without luck to stop the school being resited

there. That plan, too, is full steam ahead.

Also today, we have the outcome of the eco-burial saga in

Widow’s hope fades

• By Louis Day

ANN THORNTON’S hopes

of being buried alongside her

husband are fading following the

city council’s unchanged stance

on pre-purchasing graves.

The city council decided

against altering its Cemeteries

Bylaw and Handbook that prevents

people from pre-purchasing

graves at its meeting last week.

Mrs Thronton’s husband,

Jim, was the first to be buried in

Diamond Harbour’s eco-burial

site last November. Three of the

12 plots have been filled since the

eco-burial site opened and more

than 70 people have signalled an

interest in being buried on the

site.

In spite of fears the cemetery

would fill up, Mrs Thorton remained

optimistic.

“There was the suggestion of

a possibility for the opportunity

to revisit the issue when more

research is completed. With more

research available I am hopeful

that the council will arrive at an

informed and compassionate

solution to the issue.”

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner

was not happy with the decision.

“The particular area where I

would be keen for us to show

more compassion would be

where when one partner has

already been buried at the green

burial plot in Diamond Harbour

and the ability to reserve a plot

for that other partner.”

City councillor Mike Davidson

said there already a capacity issue

with cemeteries.

“One of the biggest issues

with pre-purchasing plots is that

we have got these cemeteries

with lots of vacant plots in there

that have been pre-purchased for

decades.”

DOG RESTRICTIONS

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board has requested city council

staff to enforce dog restrictions on

Akaroa Beach. Dogs prohibited

from the beach between 9am and

7pm. Board member Janis Haley

said there was nothing worse than

big dogs disrupting children on

the beach. Akaroa used to have a

dog ranger and Ms Haley hoped

the council could reinstate one

to stop people taking dogs to the

beach.

Four fire trucks and 20 firefighters

Confusion

over new

road sign

A NEW road sign has been a

source of confusion for Governors

Bay residents.

The electric sign tells motorists

to watch their speed leaving Governors

Bay, about 400m before the

speed limit increases to 60km/h on

Dyers Pass Rd.

Governors Bay resident John

Bannock said it would have made

more sense to have the sign facing

the other way.

“It seems a bit crazy because it’s

facing the traffic that is leaving

Governors Bay and then if you’re

leaving via Dyers Pass Rd you

go up about 300m and you hit a

60km/h speed sign saying you can

go faster anyway.”

Mr Bannock said the sign was

of no benefit to the residents of

Governors Bay.

City council Transport Operations

Manager Steffan Thomas,

however, said the city council had

no plans to move it.

“When determining the best

locations for the sign within our

context, staff considered where

and in which direction speeding

was most prevalent, and where it

was most important for safety that

speeding is targeted.”

‘We’ve got the best bar in town’

• By Louis Day

THE SUMNER Tennis and

Squash Club’s renovated courts

and a brand new bar are the

best in town, president Phil

Loughnan says.

The club reopened at the

weekend after six months of

being closed and members were

able to see the renovated tennis

and squash courts, changing

rooms, kitchen and bar.

Mr Loughnan said the new

bar made it one of the best sports

clubs to have a beer at in the city.

“Now that we have the new

sliding doors which open out, the

new bar, the leaners that look on

to the tennis courts, it’s the best

bar in bloody Christchurch,” he

said.

The club suffered significant

damage following the February

22, 2011, earthquake with cracks

stretching across the tennis

courts.

The 1970s building was also

beginning to show its age.

“In the 70s when they built

buildings I think they just

chucked them together, for the

last 50 odd years it never had

anything done to it. It was an

untidy dirty old place, we needed

to start again,” Mr Loughnan

said.

The renovated building has

been fitted with insulation

and the relocation of the stairs

allow for table tennis and other

Mr Loughnan encouraged

people to go in and find out for

themselves whether the club had

the best bar in the city.

Port Hills tracks add to fire threat

• By Louis Day

UNAUTHORISED cycle and

walking tracks in the Port Hills

could contribute to the start of

another disastrous fire.

Lyttelton resident Wendy

Everingham said the city council

desperately needs to adopt a

policy that stopped people from

creating their own cycle and

walking tracks across the Port

Hills.

“If the water is on an ordinary

surface, it is dispersing through

that land mass

more evenly,

but as soon as

you open up the

land with tracks,

you create little

streams and

water bypasses

parts of the

reserve and you

get some places

which are drier than others.”

Mrs Everingham said she

was appalled by the number of

unauthorised tracks that were

being made on the Port Hills.

“Up on the Urumau Reserve I

saw someone had come through

and cut down quite a lot of trees,

so they were opening up an

area that was supposed to be for

forest.”

Mrs Everingham said she had

also noticed an unauthorised

track which went through

Steadfast land and the

Whakaraupo Reserve.

City council acting head

of parks Kate Russell said

the illegal track that entered

Steadfast land and Whakaraupo

Reserve had been closed and

rangers were investigating other

tracks in the Port Hills.

“We have out signs reading

‘track closed, no access’,” she

said.

“We have discussed with local

committees that the track is not

to be used and developed any

work may be carried out to

further exclude access to the

track.”

Ms Russell warned that some

of the unauthorised tracks

ventured into areas of potential

rockfall risk.

“This [Steadfast and

Whakaraupo Reserve] track did

follow a route that would take

people into a zone of rockfall

that has not been mitigated or

had recent inspections.”

Ms Russell said a geotechnical

undertaken to determine how

great the risk of rockfall was in

those areas.

Ms Russell asked people to

consider the consequences of

their actions before forming

their own tracks.

“If people carry out

unauthorised work, there is

the risk of unsafe tracks

being developed as well

as serious impacts to the

environment which can take

many years to repair. We

invite people to contact the

council or their local reserve

committee to provide ideas on

Fire rages, homes at risk

35-year bach

leases a

step closer

TAYLORS MISTAKE bach

owners have moved a step closer

to securing 35-year licences.

The city council accepted the

recommendations from the Taylors

Mistake working party, led by

city councillor Sara Templeton, to

grant licences to baches of heritage

value.

Thirteen of the baches assessed

have been classed as moderate to

high risk from natural hazards.

This means owners will have to

mitigate the hazards out of their

own pocket.

Taylor Mistake Association

president Brent Gilpin remained

optimistic any risk of damage

could be mitigated. He was satisfied

with the 35-year licences as

long as there was the option to renew

them. “This is not about just

managing them in my lifetime,

I want them to be used for generations.

If the licence was for 35

years and that was it, that would

be a disappointing outcome.”

The city council plan for the

baches is out for public consultation

until January 14. A hearings

panel will then consider submissions

before making a recommendation

to the council next year.

Principal goes for swim at school fair

Event raises $30k in spite of weather

• By Louis Day

REDCLIFFS SCHOOL still

managed to raise more than

$30,000 at its fair on Sunday

in the face of wet and windy

weather.

School principal Rose

McInerney, who went for a swim

in the dunk tank, said there was

still more money to come.

“We had two amazing cubby

houses at the fair and because we

couldn’t paint them at the fair

because of the weather, they still

have to be finished and auctioned

off on Trade Me, so they will

potentially bring in another

$5000,” said Mrs McInerney.

More than 2000 people

attended the fair and were treated

to a wide variety of sideshows and

activities, such as mini golf, dunk

the teacher, mini jeep trucks and

a horizontal bungy.

Pupils opened the fair by

performing kapa haka and

singing choir songs.

“Our (pupils) were incredible,

I think they got about 4min of

singing without rain and sung

their little hearts out for another

20min in the rain.”

Mrs McInerney said the money

raised would go a long way in

improving the experience of

pupils at the school.

“Some of it will go towards

additional teaching resources to

provide extra opportunity for

our students and some of it is

definitely going to go towards the

outdoor areas and seating for our

new school.”

Mrs McInerney said the fair

could have quite easily been

a failure if it were not for the

resilience of the community.

“For our school community

and the wider community to get

behind the school fair and come

along out in the wind and rain, I

just think it speaks volumes about

who they are.”

First week on the job and

baby takes her first steps

VITTORIA HAS taken

her first independent steps.

And all five of them were

away from me.

I don’t mean that in

some metaphorical sense,

they were literally away

from me and she hasn’t

walked again . . . yet.

While we played in the

hall, my wife Laura called

her over and she turned

away from me and walked

the half metre over to her

mum.

Laura’s proud as punch

and I’m super-excited

about what this means for

my time as a stay-at-homedad.

However, I’m still

jealous that all five of her

steps so far have been away

from me. Dumb, huh?

Luckily, I did not have

time to spend moping –

November 13 was B-Day.

My first official stay-athome-dad

day.

It was like D-Day, except

without the guns, the

soldiers, the beach landing

or other adults.

I think I did really well,

but it showcased what I

think will be a hurdle for

me.

I’d had a couple of

training days over the

weekend as Laura went

out with friends and to

organise a few things

before starting back at

work.

On the Friday, I took

Vittoria for a walk, got a

slice of pizza and chased

some ducks.

All good stuff in lieu of

baby times at the library,

which would’ve been on if

it wasn’t Show Day.

However, the weather

last week put walks out

of the question and there

were still no free activities

on nearby.

It forced me to think of

something to do. Before I

could have just followed

Laura’s routine.

But that’s just it, it’s

Laura’s routine.

Now that I’m in charge

(in theory, Vittoria tends

to dispute that) on the

home front, organising

outings and thinking up

things to do is on me.

VITTORIA

& Matt

In stereotypical male

fashion, I decided on a

trip to get some bits to do

some repairs at home – fix

all Vittoria’s broken bibs

using hammered in snap

fasteners.

But I wonder if I’ll

manage to keep conjuring

ideas to keep us occupied

before I hit a wall of sorts

and spend every day

there’s no activity at home

in my pyjamas being hit in

the head with toys.

More to the point, I

hope those ideas can

include other grown-ups

so I can sneak in the odd

conversation that doesn’t

include the phrases “please

don’t cry” and “eat that” or

“the cat doesn’t like being

climbed on.”

WHAT DO you get when

you combine a cheap

Along with a good dose

of clever software engineering,

the answer is a simulated

x-ray control panel

that looks and acts like the

real thing.

At a fraction of the price

of a normal x-ray control

panel, the device has been

created by staff at Christchurch

Hospital and Ara

Institute of Canterbury.

It will allow radiology

students to be able to

practice x-ray techniques

in a safe, radiation-free environment

in the Manawa

Simulation Centre.

The health and education

facility has a simulation

floor which enables largescale

simulations in real

world health-care environments.

Students also get access

to clinical equipment

that they would normally

only see during placements.

Functioning X-ray control

panels are required in

the medical imaging area,

said bio-medical engineer

Michael Sheedy.

“These are very expensive

but in a few weeks we were

able to design and produce

a replica at an extremely

reduced cost that emulates

everything the real one can

More than

1000 signatures

on cafe petition

• By Louis Day

THE PETITION to extend the

building approval at the Godley

House site currently occupied by

Dark Star Ale House and Cafe

has received more than 1000

signatures.

Statutory building approval for

the cafe building, the equivalent

of a building and resource consent,

was obtained by a previous

owner through emergency earthquake

legislation.

That approval expired in April

but was extended to June 2021.

The petition on change.org calls

for the sites statutory building approval

to be extended “until such

time as new services are built on

the Godley House site” to attract

a new business to take over from

the Dark Star when it closes in

March.

Dark Star co-owner Donna

Richardson said she and her husband

had tried to sell the business,

but the limited time remaining

on the site’s building approval

put potential buyers off. She said

the signatures showed the community

wanted another cafe to

take over from the Dark Star.

Mrs Richardson plans to

present the petition to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

within the next couple of months.

City2Surf to celebrate 45 years

STAR MEDIA will celebrate

45 years since participants in

the City2Surf hit the ground

running.

Since 1975, Star Media’s

City2Surf, one of the South

Island’s largest participation

events, has brought thousands

of people together for fun and

fitness.

On March 24, City2Surf will

celebrate its 45th anniversary.

A lot has changed since the

event’s humble beginnings.

However, it still remains first

and foremost a fun run.

Originally, the City2Surf

would start in Cathedral Square

and end at New Brighton beach.

Later, the finish line was

changed to QE II stadium.

In 2011, following the

earthquake, the event had to be

cancelled as parts of the eastern

route were broken.

Now the start line for the

14km event is at Centennial Park

and the Sport Canterbury 6km

event begins at Hansen Park,

Opawa.

Both events finish at the

Ferrymead playing fields with

FREE entry given to participants

into Ferrymead Historic Park.

Over the years, City2Surf

has helped to burn more than

184,730,000 calories, says event

“The amount of kilometres

run during this event is enough

to run around the world 120

times,” he said.

Entries to participate in

the 2019 City2Surf open on

The Star Media 14km event

with Les Mills and Sport

Canterbury 6km option means

there is always something

suitable for all runners and

walkers of all fitness types.

Participants can choose to

either take part individually or

in a team.

including teams of doctors,

and scientists.

GREAT READS INSTORE NOW

Becoming

by Michelle Obama

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama

has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women

of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America-the first

African-American to serve in that role-she helped create the most

welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also

establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls

in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways

that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing

with her husband as he led America through some of its most

harrowing moments. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection

and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers

into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped

her-from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years

as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work,

to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. Warm,

wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning

of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied

expectations-and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Houses of Aotearoa

by Andrew Patterson

In Maori culture, architecture is approached as a construction

of beliefs: a building must emulate and amplify personalities,

hopes and aspirations, becoming the physical expression of

those who inhabit it. These ideas and others are the inspirations

behind the house projects of New Zealand architect Andrew

Patterson, who has been designing houses and civic projects

in the country for over thirty years and was awarded the New

Zealand Institute of Architects 2017 Gold Medal. This book

showcases seventeen of Patterson’s recent houses, in some of the most dramatic locations in New Zealand,

from stunning seascape retreats to hillside cabins. Each house reveals how Patterson’s architecture responds

to the region’s breathtaking landscapes to tell the story of the country’s cultural history and to create a sense

of place and belonging. This fully illustrated, large-format overview is interspersed with thematic sections that

present Patterson’s key influences and the culture and lifestyles of New Zealand more broadly, particularly

Maori language, history and mythology.

Homebody

A Guide to Creating Spaces you Never Want to Leave

by Joanna Gaines

In Homebody, Joanna Gaines walks you through how to create

a home that reflects the personalities and stories of the people

who live there. Using examples from her own farmhouse as well

as a range of other homes, this comprehensive guide will help

you assess your priorities and instincts, as well as your likes and

dislikes, with practical steps for navigating and embracing your

authentic design style. Room by room, Homebody gives you an

in-depth look at how these styles are implemented as well as how

to blend the looks you’re drawn to in order to create spaces that

feel distinctly yours. A removable design template at the back of

the book offers a step-by-step guide to planning and sketching out

your own design plans. The insight shared in Homebody will instill

in you the confidence to thoughtfully create spaces you never want

to leave.

The Great Cave Rescue

The extraordinary story of the Thai boy soccer team

trapped in a cave for 18 days

by James Massoda

Keen to go exploring after soccer practice, the boys of the Wild Boars

soccer team ignored the sign at the cave entrance warning visitors not

to enter during the monsoon season. What followed was a high-stakes

international mission that very nearly didn’t succeed. The ordeal riveted

millions around the world. First came the awful news that twelve Thai

boys, aged 11 to 17, and their young coach were missing. Then the

flickering video of the huddle of anxious and hungry boys found by a pair

of British divers nine days later. But the most difficult part was yet to come.

Monsoon rains had raised the water level in the cave system, and the

boys were trapped in an air pocket, surrounded by rising muddy water,

over two kilometres from the cave entrance. None of them knew how to

dive. Expert British, Australian, American, Chinese and other international

divers joined the Thai Navy SEALs and hundreds of local volunteers to

mount one of the most risky and complex rescue operations the world

has ever seen. Australian doctor Richard Harris and his dive partner, Craig

Challen.

FOR ONLY

100-YEARS: Dorothy Perkins (middle in red) marked her 100th birthday on Friday

with family who travelled from Dunedin, Invercargill, Tauranga and England.

Sumner centenarian

celebrates with family

DOROTHY Perkins

celebrated her 100th

birthday on Friday.

She was joined by family

and friends from Dunedin,

Invercargill, Tauranga and

as far away as England at

Edith Cavell Lifecare and

Village in Sumner.

Miss Perkins received

letters congratulating

her from the Queen, Port

Hills MP Ruth Dyson and

several people living on

Stewart Island. She was the

district nurse on Stewart

Island from 1965-1972,

where she would look after

seasick ferry passengers,

newborn babies, the elderly,

and accident victims.

Miss Perkins became

famous throughout the

community for driving

what relatives described as

a “green army jeep” to see

patients across the island.

Her cousin Robert

Overton said Miss Perkins

was often on call 24 hours

a day as she was the only

nurse on the island.

“She had to be a bit of

everything there. There

wasn’t even a doctor on the

island.”

Before she was the

district nurse on Stewart

Island, Miss Perkins

worked at St Helen’s

Hospital in Sydenham, Dee

St Maternity Hospital in

Invercargill and was also

matron at the Lumsden

Maternity Centre.

After seven years

of service on Stewart

Island, Miss Perkins

retired in Christchurch

but continued to care for

family and friends.

“Dot has been the lady

who has moved where the

need has been to look after

people. She looked after

both my wife’s parents and

my parents before they

passed away,” Mr Overton

said.

Miss Perkins was driving

people to church, getting

her own groceries and

looking after herself in

her Redcliffs home until

Christmas last year, when

she moved to Edith Cavell

Lifecare and Village.

Mr Overton said Miss

Perkins would always put

the needs of other people

before her own. “Dot never

wanted to be a worry. If she

fell at two in the morning

she would wait till six to

call the buzzer. One day

she had a fall in the garden

so she shuffled into a bush

and did some weeding

while she waited for help

to arrive. She’s not one to

cause a fuss.”

New manager for Health Harbour plan

Fire rages, homes at risk

GOVERNORS BAY resident

Karen Banwell has been

appointed manager of the Whaka

Ora Healthy Harbour plan.

The final plan, which was

launched in March, sets out

an aspirational vision for

the harbour to restore the

ecological and cultural health of

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour

from the mountains to the sea.

Dr Banwell started in the role

this month. She will be based at

Rapaki Marae, but will also have

the opportunity to spend time

with each partner organisation.

However, her main time will be

out among the community.

Whaka Ora Healthy Harbour

governance group chairwoman

Yvette Couch-Lewis said

community involvement was

important to the five partners

– Environment Canterbury,

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te

Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, the city

council, and the Lyttelton Port

Company.

ECan zone delivery manager

Paul Hulse said Dr Banwell

would be an asset to the plan

implementation team.

“She comes with a wealth

of experience within plan

implementation and has great

connections with people in the

harbour already,” he said.

Dr Banwell has previously

worked for city council and

ECan as a senior strategy adviser,

but more recently worked as a

strategic planning advisor at

Regenerate Christchurch.

She is currently chairwoman of

the Governors Bay Community

Association, a trustee of the Avon

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust

NEW ROLE: Whaka Ora

manager Karen Banwell

by Lyttelton Primary School

students.

and recently completed a PhD

in geography on community

resilience.

Dr Banwell said she could not

wait to start her new role.

“I was sent the job description

by multiple people who said this

is written for you.”

“This job was pretty much

a culmination of my work

experience and what I love to do

and I’m committed to working

with the harbour community

for ecological and cultural

outcomes,” Dr Banwell said.

Dr Banwell’s appointment

was officially announced at

Lyttelton Primary School on

Thursday.

Sumner woman in new baby theatre

BABIES AND theatre are not

usually two things that are put

together.

In fact, any parent who have

taken a baby to a performance

know it can be challenging at

best and a disaster at worst.

Turning that whole idea on

its head is Sumner’s Hannah

Wheeler, Burwood’s Melanie

Luckman and Strowan’s Amy

Straker.

The three performers will

perform their show Up And

Away, which is designed

especially for pre-walking

babies in New Brighton and

Phillipstown.

The show will be staged

through the newly launched

Cubbin Theatre Company.

The company aims to develop

genuine theatre works for

children under the age of five.

Each performance will

last about 30-40min with an

opportunity for families to stay

and play at the end.

The show will also be taking

place in a carefully crafted tent.

“Our vision is of a world where

high-quality art is as integral to

early childhood as the

playground and as accessible,”

Luckman said.

She said it has been great

working with the city council’s

Enliven Places Project Fund for

this tour.

Luckman said with the

MAGICAL: Hannah Wheeler and Amy Straker performing in

their show Up and Away –which is designed especially for

funding’s help, it could offer the

show for $5 for a baby and adult

together.

The show is informed by

neuroscientific research and has

been developed in consultation

with a speech and language

therapist through a series of

rehearsal workshops with babies.

Wheeler was working at LATT

Children’s Theatre and living in

South Korea when she saw her

first baby theatre performance.

“It was five years ago and what

I experienced has stuck with me

ever since. I am really excited

about bringing high quality,

respectful and intelligent theatre

to children in Christchurch,” she

said.

Up and Away runs Sunday,

Monday and Tuesday at The

SEVENTY descendants of

Samuel Manson, who was

known as “head of the bay”,

recently gathered at the stone

cottage in Orton Bradley

Park to celebrate their ancestor.

Samuel Manson, who

was believed to be the first

carpenter in Christchurch,

built the original cottage

in 1848. After a seven-year

restoration process following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, the cottage

reopened its doors to the

public in May.

Great great grandson

of Samuel, Max Manson,

presented a portrait of the

carpenter to the Orton

Bradley Park Board

chairman Simon Mortlock.

Mr Manson spoke of the

pride which the Mansons

have in the history of

pioneers in the family. That

also included Jean Manson,

who mothered 17 children.

Mr Manson also paid

tribute to his cousin Janet

O’Loughlan, who organised

the day with her niece,

Robyn Cody, printed a

booklet y and organised

displays of old photographs

and other memorabilia in the

old school house.

McKay exhibition in Akaroa

• By Louis Day

AKAROA MUSEUM is

holding an exhibition that

celebrates the career of retired

photographer Donald McKay.

At the start of the year, Mr

McKay donated more than

40,000 individual frames to the

museum which date from the

late 1940s to the early 1980s.

The collection of photos

document social and community

events, weddings, farming

activities and other aspects of

life across the Banks Peninsula.

Mr McKay, 84, grew up on a

farm in Le Bons Bay and began

taking photos at Christchurch

Boy’s High School when he

joined the camera club.

Mr McKay sold his bike and

his best pair of shoes to buy a

second-hand camera from H.E

Perry in Colombo St.

“We had some really, really

good instructors, including Len

Casbolt and Frank McGregor.

Also, I used to spend a lot of

time at my uncle Stan McKay’s

as he was the Christchurch Star

Sun photographer and his son

Ross was a skilled horse racing

Mr McKay started his first

photography job in 1961 at

Burwood Hospital as a medical

photographer, but would still

travel back to the peninsula

during the weekend to photograph

various community

events. Museum collections

manager Daniel Smith said the

exhibition would focus on Mc-

Kay’s work during the 1950s.

“During the 50s he was doing

a lot of odd jobs as well as

photography. He did a lot a lot

of farm work and he would also

take his camera with him when

he was working on his farm

jobs.”

Mr Smith said the exhibition

would include some of McKay’s

most explicit work.

“I’ve included a photograph

from a series that follows the

in 1951. It was a grisly affair.

The tails were cut off with

Developing young surfers

Steve Tyro

from the Point

Surf Team

writes about

getting his

club of young

groms ready

for a summer

of surfing competitions

POINT SURF Team was formed

in 1983 and is the local surf

boardriders club in the Sumner

and Taylors Mistake area.

In the past, the club has had

several national champions and

dominated the South Island

circuit for many years.

The current focus of the club is

on developing its junior surfing

section by encouraging primary

and high school-aged surfers to

enter surfing contests around the

country and locally, and also act

responsibly/respectfully in the

surf.

We meet regularly for surf

training and drills at Hardwicke

St or at Taylors Mistake. The

past winter’s focus has been on

preparing for the New Zealand

primary school champs in

Gisborne.

The club sent a team of two

boys and three girls to the event

last month.

We have been preparing for

the South Island grom series

on Saturday and events over

summer in Christchurch,

Westport, Dunedin, Southland

and Kaikoura. Last year’s South

Island contest results were very

encouraging for the club with

Amelie Wink, Jack Tyro, Jordan

Sparrow, Holly Campbell, Ruby

Armstrong, Benji Lowen and

Kobe Coleman all making the

podium.

As well as Sumner and Taylors

Mistake, we especially want to

encourage kids from Lyttelton,

Redcliffs, Heathcote and Mt

Pleasant to consider getting into

competitive surfing.

down on the water

Lyttelton

navigational

safety officer

Gary Manch

WELL our

first seasonal

boating

weekend has

been and

gone, with show weekend in

Canterbury traditionally the

start of the boating season.

It was a weekend where the

weather turned out better than

forecast. We had quite a few

boats out and about on our waterways

through the region.

The good news is we had very

few complaints about bad behaviour

on the water, and I thank all

the responsible power boat and

jet ski users out there for that.

The bad news is I still received

complaints from some of the

residents in the bays, and it was

the annual comment about

speed. As I have mentioned several

times before, our role is not

to stop you having fun out there,

but we want everyone using the

waterways to be safe.

I keep stressing this and it’s

disappointing that some people

either chose to ignore the advice

or just don’t care. As my dear old

mum used to say: “Don’t care

was made to care.”

I would much rather educate

than use the other option, which

is issuing an infringement notice

to people who are boating unsafely.

However, there may come

a time when education is clearly

not working.

Now, I am guessing that if you

are out on the water for the day,

you are going to use a lot of fuel.

Let’s say $50 to $100 on a smaller

vessel.

Taking the scenario a step

further, if you are reported for

travelling faster than five knots

when within 50m of another

vessel or swimmer in the water,

or within 200m of the shore

unless the area is a designated

water-ski, or uplifted area, the

fine is $200.

I was not the greatest at maths

at school, but even I can work

out by going slower and keeping

to the safe limits, $200 is a lot of

money to save.

My advice this week is keep

your speeds to the required limit

as designated by the bylaw or

signs in the area. That way, you

will save money and I will save

ink.

Remember, nobody’s faster

than disaster

SUMNER LOST to Lancaster

Park on Saturday in their third

consecutive defeat of the season.

Sumner now sit in sixth place

on the championship ladder and

will be relying on other results

and a win against Burnside at the

weekend to make the semi-finals.

Sumner club captain Dan

Vann said the side have been

struggling to rediscover their

early season form in recent

weeks.

Sumner lost the toss and

batted first. Lancaster bowled

well and took early wickets to

have Sumner in trouble at 14/3.

A small fight back from opener

George Moore (25) and Dan

Vann (15) settled things slightly

before wickets continued to fall

until a last wicket partnership

of 22 gave Sumner a total of 100

all out.

In reply, Sumner made a great

start, picking up early wickets

and having Lancaster in serious

trouble at 39/5, largely due to

Dean Smith taking three early

wickets (3/3).

Slow bowlers Dan Vann (1/11)

and Jonny Percasky (1/13) put

the squeeze on, only conceding

24 from their 16 overs and

picking up a wicket each.

Lancaster Park eventually

decided to make a dash to get

over the line and it came off with

their No 8 batsman Will Ainsley

making a quick 27 to get them to

the total and the win.

Vann said it was the

side’s batting that let them

down.

“We just aren’t scoring enough

runs as a team,” he said.

“Early in the season, we were

the leading batting side in the

league and we still have four

of our batsmen in the top 10

run-scorers in the league. So we

know we have the ability to score

SLUMP: Dean Smith’s three early wickets were not enough to

prevent Sumner falling to their third consecutive defeat.

the runs, it’s just a matter of

getting ourselves in and going on

to bigger scores.”

Vann remains confident his

side can bounce back against

seventh-place Burnside on

Saturday and reach the semifinals.

“The boys were disappointed

for sure but we know what we

need to do and how to address

it.”

THE Christchurch City Chorus

is putting on a festive show to

get everyone into the Christmas

spirit.

On December 15 the choir will

take the stage to perform The

Magic of Christmas.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the show

would include Christmas carols,

skits, poems and dancing.

“We want to share the joy and

music of Christmas with people,”

she said.

“We want everyone to come

and sing carols with us. It’s

something for the whole family

to get everyone excited for

Christmas.”

She said about 80 members of

the choir would be performing.

“We’ve got quartets singing,

we’ve got small groups singing,

we’ve got about 20 children who

will be performing,” she said.

“We’ll sing a lot of the classic

Christmas carols, but there will

also be a few songs that people

won’t know; songs from around

the world about Christmas.”

The show would give members

a chance to get some practice

Motoring

Drive past the petrol stations in a Kona

• By Ross Kiddie

THE FUTURE is now. Electric

vehicles are the talking point,

and while Tesla is seen as the

glamour brand and has stolen

the limelight in that part of the

market, it’s now time for the

mainstream manufacturers to

stand up and be counted.

Sure, there are a plethora of

petrol/electric hybrids available

in our market, and heaps

of pre-owned Nissan Leafs from

Japan, but there are just a few

electric-only models that can be

purchased new here.

One manufacturer which is

offering a good cross-section

of electric and hybrid models

is Hyundai. In recent times it

has launched a smallish liftback

model – the Ioniq – in electriconly

form (as well as hybrid), and

just lately the Kona has landed

with electric propulsion, bearing

in mind the small sport utility

vehicle is also here in normallyaspirated

and turbocharged petrol

variants.

When I look back in my diary

for this year, I see I’ve spent more

time in Kona than any other

model. It’s just as well then that

I like it, the Kona a neat mid-size

SUV which punches above its

weight in terms of driveability

and practicality. It lands here

HYUNDAI KONA: Plug it in and charge it up.

from $31,990, but it is a bit of a

step up to buy the electric Elite

64kWh at $79,990. Sure, there’s

a soon-to-be-launched lower

power version (39kWh), but

as with most new electric-only

models in the market there is a

price premium.

However, that’s no detraction,

the Kona EV is a fine piece of

work and it is a car which will go

a long way towards meeting the

sales target for EVs.

As mentioned, the Kona is

mid-size and there is little compromise

in the electric model.

Yes, the boot space is slightly

diminished but elsewhere you’ll

find little difference inside. That

is, unless you are the driver, the

controls and layout of the console

and dash area is quite different to

the standard car.

Notably, there are four push

buttons for the direct drive transmission,

all self-explanatory –

drive, reverse, park and neutral.

There are also paddle shifters;

well, they don’t really shift gears,

they simply add or reduce drag

on the electric motor to promote

the feeling of gearing. There

are also several drive modes to

increase or lower a sporty feel.

Ordinarily, the electric power

is ushered in with a solid surge

right from the point of first

movement. That’s because full

power is available instantly, and

if you take into account there

• Price – Hyundai Kona EV

Elite, $73,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4165mm; width,

1800mm; height,

1565mm

• Configuration – Electric

motor, front-wheeldrive,

150kW, 395Nm,

automatic transmission.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.6sec

is 395Nm of torque on tap, the

Kona EV feels feisty.

In technical terms, there’s also

150kW of power available which

if you stack up against a petrol

engine, then it is biased towards

sporty.

If you are thinking that there

must be some trade-off in terms

of range then think again, the

Kona EV has a claimed travelling

distance of up to 480km between

charges.

That’s simply due to the number

of batteries, as mentioned, there is

64kWh of storage, and that along

with the latest generation Lithiumion

Polymer technology makes

the Kona outstanding in terms of

capacity.

The only downside of having

such capacity is the charge time;

to fully charge from empty takes

around nine hours, or 43 hours

from a three-pin plug wall socket.

That aside, most drivers don’t let

the batteries go that low, and with

the number of charging stations

being installed nationwide, that

needn’t be an issue.

The Kona is also a blast to

drive, it is fast – a standstill to

100km/h time of 7.6sec is possible

and it will scorch through

a highway overtake in 4sec, the

time it takes to make 120km/h

from 80km/h is blisteringly fast,

and that’s attributable to that high

torque figure the electric motor

develops.

For an SUV, the Kona is

delightfully agile, and I’m talking

about a car which has a lot of

weight, the batteries add around

236kg to the standard car, yet it

still feels nimble and balanced.

Depending on your service

provider, the Kona will cost

around $8 to charge, and would be

more favourable on a night rate.

That being the case, it’s easy

to see why EVs are becoming so

popular in an age where fossil

fuel costs are spiralling. If I was

an EV buyer, the Kona would be

by far my pick, it is a genuinely

functional all-round vehicle,

and one which has quality

engineering aspects.

The Invitation

by Belinda Alexandra

In Gilded Age New York, money buys everything. What is your

price? Sometimes the ties that bind are the most dangerous of

all ...

Paris, 1899. Emma Lacasse has been estranged from her older

sister for nearly twenty years, since Caroline married a wealthy

American and left France. So when Emma receives a request from

Caroline to meet her, she is intrigued. Caroline invites Emma to visit

her in New York, on one condition: Emma must tutor her shy, young

niece, Isadora, and help her prepare for her society debut.

Caroline lives a life of unimaginable excess and opulence as one of New York’s Gilded

Age millionaires and Emma is soon immersed in a world of luxury beyond her wildest

dreams - a far cry from her bohemian lifestyle as a harpist and writer with her lover,

Claude, in Montmartre.

Emma hopes for an emotional reunion with her only family, but instead she finds

herself in the vice-like grip of her charismatic and manipulative sister, who revels in the

machinations of the ultra rich. As Emma begins to question her sister’s true motives, a

disaster strikes, and New York society is stripped bare - beneath the glittering exterior lies a

seething nest of deceit, betrayal, moral corruption ... and perhaps even murder.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

The apartment suffere damage

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement
