LYTTELTON PORT COMPANY UPDATE

The Fairway leaves our shores after spending 12 weeks on our Channel Deepening Project.

One of our bigger projects is

the deepening of the navigation

channel, which started in

August when one of the world’s

largest dredges, the Fairway,

arrived in Lyttelton Harbour.

The Fairway was a fixture

in Lyttelton Harbour for 12

weeks, as she worked around

the clock to widen, lengthen

and deepen the navigation

channel. She has dredged more

than five million cubic metres of

mud and silt off the sea floor.

The dredging programme means

larger container ships, which have

virtually doubled in size during

the last 10 years, will now be able

to call at Lyttelton. Prior to the

Channel Deepening Project some

vessels had to wait for high tide

before they could arrive or depart

our Port – now larger vessels can

access the Port at all times.

NEVER FORGOTTEN: World War 2 veteran William Joker and RSA president Pat Boland stand in front of the 21 crosses on

Wakefield Ave.

CROSSES that remember 21

men from the Sumner area

who were killed in World War

1 can now be claimed by their

descendants.

The 21 crosses were displayed

at the Sumner Redcliffs RSA

Armistice Day commemoration

last month.

RSA vice-president Bernie

Godden said the descendants

could get in touch with the RSA

to claim a cross.

The crosses were made by RSA

members for Armistice Day as

part of a nationwide initiative to

create a cross for every serviceman

lost in World War 1.

Crime

Diamond

Harbour

• By Louis Day

DIAMOND HARBOUR is

caught in a crime wave – the

worst in at least 20 years.

A house has been broken into,

a $1500 boat trailer has been

taken and mail continues to be

stolen from letterboxes.

Chief fire officer and former policeman

of 34 years, Bob Palmer,

said he has not seen this much

crime in Diamond Harbour since

the late 1990s.

“We had a major burglary crime

wave maybe 20 years ago, something

like 26 or 30 burglaries over

three or four days.”

Jeremy Smith said the last few

months had been the worst he

had seen in his three years as Diamond

Harbour Neighbourhood

support co-ordinator.

Mr Smith said four or five

parcels had been stolen in the last

couple of weeks.

“There was one occasion where

the courier driver dropped off a

parcel and went back 20min later

and it had been taken.”

Mr Smith said in a perfect

world it would be ideal to have a

permanent police presence in the

area. •Turn to page 4

IF YOU live in Diamond Harbour keep

your eyes peeled.

We reveal on page 1 today the area is

gripped by a small crime wave.

The way to nip a small crime wave in the

bud is to catch the culprit or culprits.

The public has a part to play in that.

The police can only do so much. With the nearest police

station a reasonable hike away a place like Diamond Harbour

can be good pickings.

But it can also be a crim’s undoing.

Strangers stand out in small communities, even in busy

Diamond Harbour.

So if you spot something or someone that looks suspicious

note their descriptions and write down their vehicle’s rego

number.

Then call the police.

A SUMNER motel owner’s bid

to stop a skate park from being

constructed across the road has

failed.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board approved

26 Nayland St as the location for

the Bays Area skate park.

Sumner Bay Motel owner

Roger Evans expressed his concerns

throughout his deputation

to the board that the skate park

would disturb his customers.

“I’m not against a skate park

but I think the Nayland St site

is going to affect my business

because of the acoustics.”

Mr Evans also thought the

Nayland St site was not the “best

value for money for ratepayers.”

The skate park on Nayland St

would be smaller than it would

have been on other sites due to

a considerable portion of the

money being allocated towards

rockfall mitigation.

The motion to approve the

Nayland St site as the location

for the skate park was carried

unanimously by the board, however,

some of the members still

had their concerns about the site.

Community board member

and city councillor Yani Johanson

“reluctantly” supported the

decision.

“This has been an issue that

has gone on for a very long time,

I’m just disappointed it’s going

to be a small skate park and

half the money is going towards

rockfall mitigation.”

Cr Johanson said it was vital

the design of the park catered for

local businesses in the area.

“We really need to get a good

grasp of noise issues and how

through the design those things

can be mitigated and if it comes

down to it and it’s not possible

then we may need to look for

somewhere else.”

The board does have the option

to change the location of the

skate park if they are not satisfied

with the design.

by the board next year,

Mia has a passion for science

“I’m in love with technology

Bid to save Redcliffs Park fails

• By Louis Day

A BID to stop Redcliffs

School moving to the area’s

neighbourhood park looks like it

has come to an end.

A petition from the Friends

of Redcliffs Park group, aimed

at stopping the move, has been

rejected by a Government select

committee.

The petition, which received

208 signatures, called for the

new school

to be opened

on its existing

site, as

opposed to

Redcliffs

Park, due to

concerns of

Chris Doudney

flooding and

tsunami risk.

But it was

rejected by the Education and

Workforce Committee last week.

Construction of the new

school is set to start next year

and be completed by 2020.

Friends of Redcliffs Park

spokesman Chris Doudney said

he was not surprised but was still

disappointed by the committee’s

decision.

“It’s a higher tsunami risk

than the other site and it’s also a

higher flood risk than the other

site,” he said.

Mr Doudney said the school’s

move to the new site would be a

burden to ratepayers.

“Ratepayers will have to

pay $100,00 worth of roading

alterations to which we feel

should have been the Ministry

of Education’s responsibility. The

alterations are entirely down to

the school being moved.”

Mr Doudney said it was likely

to be the end of the road for

“There’s nothing more we can

really do about the current plans,

if we could we would.”

Redcliffs School board of trustees

chairman Darren Fidler said

it was now time to move on and

push forward with the school

rebuild on Redcliffs Park.

“I think this [the petition being

rejected] shows that the only

feasible option to get the school

back to Redcliffs by 2020 was to

move to Redcliffs Park.”

Mr Fidler was also

confident flood risk could be

mitigated.

“Due diligence was done

as part of the site selection in

regards to a whole range of

hazards, flooding was included

in that, we are getting improved

Little River

• By Louis Day

WORK TO reduce the risk of

flooding in Little River is now

under way.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Tori Peden said

some money had been put aside

to combat the risk of flooding in

the area.

“There have been people on

the ground inspecting a few of

the old drains to figure out what

the game plan is going forward.”

The move to address the

threat of flooding was prompted

by a submission on the Long

Term Plan from the Little River

Wairewa Community Trust.

Trust chairman Robert Burch

said reducing the risk of flooding

would make Little River a

“happier and healthier place to

live.”

“We will be able to proceed

“I am worried about the decay

Cr Turner, however, was unhappy

this was taking.

“I am doing everything I

possibly can to ensure we get

Frustration over wharf delays

• By Louis Day

FRUSTRATION IS growing

for fishermen on Akaroa wharf

as they continue to be impeded

by some of Black Cat Cruises’

structures which fall on to

public land.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board requested all

non-consented structures, such

as disability access ramps, seating,

signage and canopies, be

removed within three months

back in July. In spite of this, two

disability ramps still remain

more than a month after they

were meant to be removed.

Black Cat Cruises chief

executive Paul Milligan said it

is waiting on the city council to

approve its new plans.

“We were hoping this would

be resolved weeks ago, but we

are waiting on the council as

much as anyone is at this stage.”

Veteran fisherman of 50 years

and Akaroa Fishermen’s Association

head John Wright said he

was sick and tired of waiting for

a resolution.

“We have been on to this for

a good year, maybe more. All

we are asking [city council] is to

enforce the rules they have put

in place.”

Mr Wright said the combination

of the disability ramps and

crowds of tourists from cruise

CROWDED: The combination of tourists from cruise ships

and disability ramps on Akaroa wharf have made it almost

impossible for local fishermen to do their job.

ships were a real issue.

“There are some days where

it is impossible to get a chiller

truck on to the wharf to unload

our fishing vessels. If it’s a hot

day and we’ve got fish on the

deck, it spoils in the hot sun.”

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula city councillor Andrew

Turner said getting rid of

the disability ramps was not as

simple as first thought.

“It transpired that it wouldn’t

be that easy to remove the ramps

and ensure the accessibility of

the disabled. That has led to an

ongoing conversation with our

staff and Black Cat Cruises on

how to resolve this issue.”

Cr Turner was confident the

conflict would be resolved in the

upgrade of the wharf.

About $10.5 million has

been put aside for the upgrade,

which is expected to start in

April.

“This really is an opportunity

to make sure that what we have

got is fit for purpose and that

it is able to accommodate all of

the various businesses that the

Akaroa wharf is home to.”

Cr Turner said the widening

of the wharf entrance and wharf

itself was a strong possibility in

the upgrade.

BANNED: People in non-self contained vehicles can no longer

freedom camp in Akaroa.

New freedom camping

restrictions in effect

FREEDOM camping restrictions

in Akaroa came into force on

Saturday.

Freedom campers are now

restricted to three marked areas

near the Akaroa Croquet Club on

Woodhill Rd.

The freedom camping area

allows 18 fully self-contained vehicles

to stay overnight. Non-selfcontained

vehicles are prohibited.

This comes after the city council

agreed to alter the Freedom

Camping Bylaw to restrict where

people can camp in vehicles

overnight.

Under the original bylaw,

freedom camping was banned in

Akaroa’s commercial and main

waterfront areas, but people were

allowed to camp in self-contained

vehicles for up to two nights

in other parts of the township,

including residential areas.

The amendment to the bylaw

followed a summer of complaints

from Akaroa residents about

unsavoury behaviour from some

freedom campers.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula city councillor Andrew

Turner said the city council

wanted to encourage a positive

relationship between the community

and freedom campers.

“Amending the bylaw means

we can manage some of the more

negative impacts of freedom

camping while still allowing

responsible freedom campers to

be able to enjoy what Akaroa has

to offer.”

Redcliffs

School

talks about

how the

community

has helped

the school get ready to

move into its new home

WHAT A strong and resilient

community we have here in

Redcliffs.

We are just short of one year

away from moving into our

brand new school, which has

only been made possible by the

strength of this community.

Has fighting against closure,

navigating land swaps,

and watching demolition got

our children and families down?

Quite the opposite.

We have just completed one

of the biggest and most exciting

school fairs in the city.

Our fair is so important to

us – not only is it our main fundraiser,

bringing in funds for the

resources we need in the coming

months, but it puts smiles on our

children’s faces.

Our school fair involves

enormous commitment from

many – from the staff team leaders

through to people who bake

cakes, donate goods and give

their time before, during and

after the fair itself.

It’s exciting to think that in

the coming year, we will be able

to use some of these fair funds

raised to enhance the playscapes

in our new school.

We’ve had a long road, and it’s

hard to believe that our year 8

children were five when the June

earthquake sent us from our

school to our temporary location

in Sumner.

Our senior children shared

their Redcliffs School journey

in a presentation with Jacinda

Ardern and the Labour caucus

when they were invited to visit

Now

Community behind Redcliffs School

MEETING: A Redcliffs School pupil is welcomed by Minister of

Justice Andrew Little before the school’s presentation to the

Labour caucus last week.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Parliament on Tuesday last week.

Our children talked of their

experiences in the earthquake

and their home away from home

at Sumner and Van Asch. They

talked of determination, love of

their school and the resilience

and perseverance they have

learned watching the adults in

their lives work so hard to return

their school to Redcliffs.

These children represent the

eight years that have nearly

passed since the February earthquake

changed the landscape for

our school (both figuratively and

literally). They, and our current

year 7 pupils, will not have the

privilege of attending our new

school, but they will forever be a

part of it.

I’d like to extend an enormous

thank you to all in our community

who have so relentlessly

supported us. We’re very much

looking forward to returning our

school to Redcliffs again at the

beginning of 2020.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Grow a career

in organics

Lincoln University’s Diploma in Organic Agri-Food Production will prepare

you for work in the organic sector or your own garden or smallholdings. It’s

a full-time, one-year programme that covers the theory and practice behind

contemporary organic agri-food production.

Join us in February to find out what growing organically on an agricultural

scale really means.

Santa photo will need

some crafty editing

I’M INTO week two of

my stay-at-home-dad

adventure and I’ve been

treated to another series of

firsts.

Vittoria saw her first live

crab at Waikuku Beach,

we took our first little walk

hand-in-hand (just in the

lounge) and I even got some

steps towards me.

My favourite firsts,

though? First photo with

Father Christmas and first

time going to an activity

where other stay-at-homedads

turned up.

If you have zero clue of

what being the odd one out

feels like, being a dad at a

baby activity is normally a

great introduction.

In my experience, outside

of weekends and public

holidays, dads at said events

are proverbial unicorns;

rare and naturally herd

animals.

Recently I took Vittoria

to our first Toes and

Giggles session as the

stay-at-home parent. It’s a

music and movement thing;

songs, toys, other babies

with coffee and biscuits

after.

I was pleased to see two

other dads (also in their

first couple of weeks on the

job so to speak) come in. It

will be cool to have some

contemporaries at some of

the same events to share

stories and compare notes

with.

We didn’t get much

time to chat, Vittoria

made multiple beelines for

the door, so I’m looking

forward to the next session

to talk about the stay-athome-dad

role.

As for Vittoria’s first

Santa photo, that brought

a small revelation to

light.

When I was a kid, I

remember being excited

about Santa photos and

getting a chance to get

my order in before

Christmas.

Going by Vittoria’s face

when jolly St Nick walked

out for the photo, I’ve

discovered that excitement

is something you have to

work up to.

She looked terrified and

fascinated all at once and

flat out refused to be too

close.

So for her photo, she’s

sitting on my wife Laura’s

knee, who is sitting next to

me, sitting next to the guy

and red suit who keeps

I’m really looking

forward to getting the

final product when it’s

ready – apparently there

will be some crafty editing

to make it look like we’re

on the beach. However, I

don’t think they can edit

out Vittoria’s side-eye to

Santa.

Busy lead-up to Xmas

for Lyttelton Rotary

Lyttelton Rotary Club member Barry Toomey writes about

what the club has been doing and what its plans are in the

lead-up to Christmas

FANTASTIC: Craig Fraser in front of the Scarborough Park playground’s new recycled plastic

picnic tables.

Scarborough Park playground

gets new plastic picnic tables

THE Scarborough Park

playground is now home to two

picnic tables made completely out

of plastic.

Fulton Hogan Canterbury

maintenance operations

manager Craig Fraser came

up with the idea while

completing the upgrade of the

playground.

“I talked about it with a few of

my colleagues and we thought

it could be a good move to see if

we could get some park furniture

made from recycled soft plastics,

instead of the standard timber

outdoor tables and chairs.”

The city council supported

the idea, replacing the standard

outdoor timber tables and chairs

with picnic tables made from soft

plastics.

The six tables came from

Wellington company Metal Art.

“These tables are designed to

last for more than 50 years and

when they’ve reached the

end of their life span, they can

be recycled again,” said Mr

Fraser.

“Any graffiti can be removed

with white spirits and if the table

is scratched it can be fixed with

light use of a blowtorch.”

The city council has also

recently approved the installation

of 60 recycled soft plastic bench

seats for bus stop sites around

Christchurch.

LYTTELTON ROTARY can

mark up a successful year with

Christmas now only days away.

In September, with the help

of a local city council ranger,

the club got busy and tidied up

the very neglected Baden Norris

Walkway between Oxford St and

Sumner Rd.

The walkway had been

damaged in the earthquakes

and very little maintenance

had been done since then. This

is going to be an ongoing club

project with guidance from the

city council, so please feel free to

visit and enjoy this track, which

is in the memory of well-known

Lyttelton man Baden Norris,

who unfortunately passed away

recently and did not see the work

the club had achieved there.

The club also hosted Papanui

Rotary for a social evening with

special guest speaker Sandra

Manderson, who spoke about

her police involvement during

last year’s British and Irish Lions

rugby tour.

It is amazing how much goes

on behind-the-scenes for this

type of event to happen here

in New Zealand, and everyone

found it very interesting.

With Christmas fast

approaching, the club is now

selling tickets to its Christmas

raffle. The team is out and about

in the community selling this

great hamper prize so please

support it as the money goes

back into local community

projects within the harbour

basin.

On Sunday December 23, the

club is hosting the Community

Carols in Albion Square starting

at 7pm. Come along one and all

and enjoy the community spirit

and be part of the Christmas

build up. Children are especially

welcome to help out with the

singing and one never knows

who might appear. Clue: He

wears a red suit.

Next year will be another big

one for Lyttelton Rotary so if you

are thinking of being part of a

team which is keen to support

the community, plus have some

fun along the way, feel free to call

club president Brian Reeve on

Getting ready for

the festive season

Christmas means a lot of things to a lot of

people. For some it is a religious celebration,

for others a chance to gather with family and

celebrate. Whatever Christmas means to you,

there are many ways to celebrate – from the full

grandeur of baked ham and turkey with all the

trimmings or a picnic on the beach with the ones

you love.

For some, Christmas can be a stressful time

of year, but there are ways to minimise this and

spread the workload, so everyone can enjoy the

day.

Here are some ideas to help you get through the

festive season.

Create order in your home

Start preparations early, if you are hosting

everyone at your house, don’t leave it all to the

last minute. Start the spring clean up now so

when it comes to the days leading into the holiday

season you are not rushing around – making you

stressed and exhausted.

Tackling one room at a time is a good way

to purge and get organised. Sorting through

wardrobes and cupboards and getting rid of

anything you haven’t used in the past year. Having

all the rooms organised means there will also be

space for those coming to stay during this busy

time.

Once you’ve dusted and vacuumed shut the

doors and just air out the room a few days before

your guests arrive. A nice towel placed at the end

of the bed and a small floral arrangement from the

garden can also add a nice welcoming touch.

Share the food load

We have between 25 to 30 people for Christmas

most years, but our family has got smart. The host

divvies up the food between each family, spreading

the cost and the work.

About four weeks before the big day, we send

out a food allocation of what each person brings.

Normally the parents get the turkey and ham

with the offspring in charge of vegetables and

Panforte

puddings. This is a great way to

spread the load and the cost and allows for those

who aren’t cooks to also contribute – we just put

them in charge of nibbles, drinks or chocolates for

on the table etc.

Just make sure you tell each person how much

is needed, for example you don’t want someone

turning up with just one punnet of strawberries.

The rule is that whatever you bring you must

have prepared, so the new potatoes arrive scraped

in a pot, the vegetables and the salads and puddings

are all made.

A little bit of organisation ahead of time means

everyone gets to enjoy the day and join in the fun.

Our People

Tonight Lyttelton singer

and songwriter Lindon

Puffin will perform at a

variety concert to raise

money for a Christchurch

YouthHub. His own

experiences when he

was younger have led

him to want to give back

and help youths. Sophie

Cornish talks to him

Lindon Puffin

Ageing gracefully but still making

How did you benefit from a

youth health centre when you

were younger?

I was in a glam-punk band and

I was a pretty strange-looking

fella at this point. I was young

and in a heavy goth phase.

That was all part of coming out

of Rangiora High School and

desperately trying to find my

own identity. I didn’t fit into

the expectations of normality

and was trying to find my own

path. We had this band called

The Puffins, which was pretty

androgynous. We were there to

shock people and we got quite

a good following. I didn’t really

have the backing from my family.

Everyone was hoping I would

just get through this phase and

become normal. I had done okay

at school. It’s a pretty similar

story to a lot of youths, those

who fall outside of that curve.

Someone mentioned the health

centre, the original 198 Youth

Health Centre on Hereford St.

I went there just to see a doctor

and we realised there was this

place where we could go and be

ourselves. It was the only place

in town that was on our side,

people didn’t judge you on how

you looked. It was such a vital

thing. It was genuinely a hub;

it was where we ran into all

the other artists, out-liars, the

quirky youth. Whether they were

alienated because of their sexual

identify, mental health or just

having an odd appearance.

When did you first begin

music and why?

It was when I was 11 or

12-years-old. I was one of those

kids who got really obsessed by

music. I listened to tapes over

and over again until I knew every

word. When I was 12, I could

recite the entire album of Pink

Floyd’s The Wall. There was the

usual suspects of Fleetwood

Mac, Queen, the music that is

‘okay’ to listen to in Rangiora.

In high school I met people who

listened to music the way I did.

By the time I was 14-years-old,

my school books were filled with

pictures of Bob Dylan and John

Lennon. Then I started to teach

myself the guitar and piano.

By the time high school was

finished, we had a crappy school

rock band, which eventually

turned in The Puffins. We were

doing crazy things to our hair,

making our own costumes. I

would like to say I had a really

supportive family and that

they nurtured that, but I didn’t

really have that. My mum was

supportive, she believed in me,

but they would’ve liked to see

me do something different. My

brother Ross somehow also

escaped Rangiora. He became

a very successful contemporary

dancer and choreographer

overseas. He is currently the

New Zealand Art Laureate of

Choreography and Dance. My

sister Claire became a heavy

diesel mechanic in the mines in

Australia and now works as an

advocate for women’s rights in

the mining industry. We were

raised to have a very strong

sense of work ethic, which was

ingrained in us from a young

age. In that way we have just

continued to do that sort of

thing. For me, it became music. I

worked that as hard as I could.

I understand you are involved

in quite a bit of charity work -

what else do you do for charity?

There are different things

that come up. For example, this

week on Thursday, the radiology

department at Christchurch

Hospital is having a quiz-night

fundraiser for the Christchurch

Battered Women’s Trust. I am

co-hosting the quiz, playing some

music and helping organise that.

It is about raising money but

also about raising awareness and

morale. A few months ago at the

Adventure Park there was a fundraiser

for tree planting. There

was a dinner there and was MC, I

also played. So there is balance of

doing those things and also doing

my work, such as playing in bars.

Just last weekend I played at OGB

and Rowdy Kitchen. On Sunday,

this week, I am playing at a charity

Christmas picnic at the Little

Big Tree Nursery. They saw me

playing and wanted to put something

on for the workers’ families.

It is a variety of different things. It

is definitely an around the clock

effort. Some of it you get paid for,

some of it you don’t. People like

Dr Sue Bagshaw, who wants to

organise this new YouthHub, is

actively trying to make the world

a better place every day. I look up

to people like that and try to help

out where I can.

How long have you lived in

Lyttelton and what drew you

there?

In the mid-1990s I came

over here when The Puffins

started playing regularly at the

Wunderbar. It was the another

place, along with the 198 Youth

Health Centre, where we could

be ourselves. It is a very eccentric

place; we were encouraged by

the owner to be as outrageous

as we could. He was German

guy called York. He would say

to us, “anything that is like the

ordinary rock ’n’ roll, I will just

turn you guys away . . . at least

half of them (the audience) have

to leave upset and if they are

not leaving, then you are doing

something wrong.” We were

very lucky to have that place,

we developed our whole band

aesthetic around it. I always

had a connection to Lyttelton.

Eventually I brought a little

piece of land with my dad by

the Timeball. We built a little

cedar box house on the hill. Then

my partner, Belinda Trott and

I had a couple of kids in quick

succession, they are 13 months

apart. We focused on our house

project and I stopped touring, I

have really tried to stay local for

the past five years or so with the

family. But, I’m not quite wearing

Crocs and a polo just yet.

music in Lyttelton

I stopped dying my hair and

I’m trying to age gracefully.

There is a lot of artists here and

there is a real sense of team about

the place, really positive, creative,

competition.

On your Facebook page

you’ve listed covert yacht rock,

pop, rock, folk, punk as your

genre? What is covert yacht

rock for the people who may not

know and how best would you

describe your genre or sound?

It’s kind of subversive soft rock,

when I wrote that, it was a bit of

a joke. Once I moved past the

glam-rock phase, in the 2000s,

I started doing my solo music,

which was probably closer to

what I was listening too. I got

through that phase of shocking

people and just focused on the

songs. I feel like the music I

make, is similar to The Mutton

Birds, Dave Dobyn, Split Enz,

that New Zealand sound and

voice. I think it’s a New Zealand

folk-rock kind of sound.

You have opened for some

international acts like Tenacious

D and Billy Bragg – what’s the

closest you’ve ever gotten to big

fame? Any big names you’ve

rubbed shoulders with?

Billy Bragg is a real hero

of mine, there is integrity

personified. Paul Kelly also, I

haven’t opened for him, but I’ve

always dreamed of it. When

you are putting out albums, you

are always hustling for those

support spots, because you are

trying to promote what you have

done. I have done a couple of

tours with Billy and I just felt

incredibly lucky to have been in

that position. I toured with Chris

Knox a bit, The Mutton Birds and

The Exponents. Tenacious D is

one I can put in my bio.

I read online that you full

name is actually Lindon

McCormack, where did The

Puffins and then Lindon Puffin

originate from?

Really, we were just trying to

come up with a band name that

was colourful and somehow

we came up with The Puffins

and it was the perfect name for

a glam-rock band. We all had

crazy names in the band, I was

Lindon Puffin, the keyboard

player was Lake Vincent, because

he was Jeremy Lake. Everyone

just mucked around with their

names, it was part of making

an identity. Jason Clements the

bass player was Clements the

Bear. There was an ever evolving

seat of drummers and they were

always known as Ramona. After

I finished with the band, I got

roped into doing breakfast show

at RDU and the name stuck.

You are a father of two, what

does your typical day look like?

I try and get up in morning

and get my work done while

Belinda keeps an eye on the kids,

Rita, 3, and Elliott (also known

as Lolzy) who is almost two. I

try and do all my organising

then, it’s a constant hustle being

a freelance musician. Then I

take over in the afternoons,

when Belinda goes to work. She

works for TVNZ as an editor

for 1 News at 6 and Seven Sharp.

Sometimes I will be lucky to get

a single email done. I remember

an interview with Jacinda Ardern

and her partner Clarke, who

said he was going to build a deck

when he was a stay-at-home

dad. All of us dads laughed in

unison. He’s never going to build

a deck for the foreseeable future.

The key word I am still trying

to learn is patience. You have to

learn to put the tools down and

focus on the kids, because that is

what your job really is. It can be a

challenge.

Protected

estuary

island a

lifeline for

rare gulls

A GRAVEL island built in a

wetland reserve near the estuary

is proving a lifeline for up to 300

endangered black-billed gulls.

The gulls are nesting on the

island in the Charlesworth

Wetland Reserve in Ferrymead,

which is protected from the

heavy rain and flooding that has

destroyed other river nesting

sites.

The island in the reserve,

which is about 25m long and 1m

above the tide line, was built by

city council staff in 2003 in the

hope of creating a safe nesting

habitat for the black-billed gull,

which is critically endangered in

New Zealand.

City council ranger and

ornithologist Andrew Crossland

said this is the biggest breeding

colony of black-billed gulls and

their coastal cousins, red-billed

gulls, seen at the site since before

the earthquakes and provides a

“glimmer of hope.”

“We have up to 300 birds nesting

there at the moment. This

location is safe from river flooding

and we think the chicks

have got a really good chance of

surviving. It’s a signal to other

councils and organisations that

if we create these islands on tidal

or freshwater wetlands, then the

black-billed gulls will come and

we can help boost the population

which has been in rapid

decline. It’s a great result for the

survival of this species.”

Predators such as blackbacked

gulls, ferrets, cats and

stoats have impacted on the

threatened birds’ numbers,

along with a reduction in habitat,

mainly from weed invasion

of riverbeds.

Charlesworth Wetland

Reserve is made up of 20ha of

land, separated from the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary by Linwood

Ave and Humphreys Drive.

SCHOOLS

Students

clean up

Lyttelton

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN 120 students from

Christ’s College helped clean up

Lyttelton as part of their year 10

service week.

Groups were organised and

managed by Conservation

Volunteers New

Zealand and the

Banks Peninsula

Conservation Trust

as they carried out

a range of tasks.

Assistant

principal Neil

Porter said the

Neil Porter

week was part of the school’s

emphasis on learning about

service in the community.

“It used to be a week when the

kids went on camp, now we do

camp in a different way. Now

they’re just out in the community,

giving the kids an experience of

helping others,” he said.

Some students spent time at

Port Saddle where they weeded

around native trees that had been

planted by the Banks Peninsula

Conversation Trust.

WE ARE a sports club . . . not

a bar.

The article on the opening of

the new squash courts, changing

rooms and lounge unfortunately

focused on the bar, rather than

the club itself.

We have a very active junior

and senior on-court membership.

We have three new squash

courts and four tennis courts,

all of which must be booked

because of the high demand

from members. Over the last

six weeks, we have run the

annual spring tournament

which attracted 85 of our senior

members.

The new squash courts have

attracted new squash players

and our squash membership is

growing.

Sumner has a very strong

junior club, of which our juniors

represent well at the Canterbury

level.

Among them, Jack Hansen

Ratter and Isaac Boomer are

current 10s boys doubles Canterbury

champs and Archie

Whithear also won the 11s

boys doubles at the Canterbury

champs this year.

Macklan Robertson made the

New Zealand junior masters top

eight play-offs and also recently

won the Canterbury primary

schools open doubles. He has

also been named in the 12 years

Canterbury team to play at the

nationals teams event in January.

well as 49 pre-interclub juniors.

Month of ‘messy’ waves

SPORTS

Aaron's Surf Report

NOVEMBER WAS a month to

forget weather-wise.

Three or four Tasman lows

passed over the South Island one

after the other, which created a

constant easterly flow with wet,

humid weather seemingly neverending.

Surf-wise the easterly

wind created plenty of surf with

ridable waves most days, but the

on-shore wind meant mainly

messy, lumpy conditions.

Looking ahead, a highpressure

system has moved in

over this week so hopefully,

things brighten up for a bit.

On the contest scene, the local

groms have been out and about

at various contests. The South

Island primary school champs

were held at North Beach over

the weekend in big, stormy

conditions.

Jack Tyro won the year 7/8

boys and Eva Henderson won

the year 7/8 girls. Amelie Wink

was third in the year 7/8 girls. In

the year 6s, Travis Henderson

was third in the boys, while

Ameli Campbell was second and

Tessa Langman was fourth in the

girls.

Lucy Temoananui has been

in China competing at the ISA

world SUP champs on Hainan

Island, China’s equivalent of

Hawaii. The event was held in

nice, clean, head-high waves on

a sand-bottomed, left-hand point

break. This was Lucy’s second

year representing New Zealand

at the ISA world champs. She

SMOOTH SAILING: Lucy Temoananui navigates her way through the waves at Hainan Island off

the coast of China during the ISA world SUP champs. (Below) – Jack Tyro was all smiles after

taking out the year 7/8 competition at the South Island primary school champs.

performed well in her first

round, winning her heat, but

couldn’t find the waves in her

subsequent heats to finish 17th

overall.

Estella Hungerford was part

of the New Zealand junior surf

team which competed at the

ISA world junior champs at

Huntington Beach, California,

at the start of last month. Estella

progressed through several heats

before coming unstuck in the

repechage round three, finishing

the event in 43rd overall.

New Zealand has secured two

spots for next year on the highest

tier of competitive surfing, the

world championship tour. Paige

Hareb (Taranaki) re-qualified

recently with a win at the White

Buffalo Hyuga Pro in Japan.

Ricardo Christie (Gisborne)

re-qualified over the weekend

gaining enough points at the

Vans World Cup at Sunset

Beach, Hawaii.

It’s going to be great to see two

Kiwis on the world stage next

year.

Sumner fail

to make

one-day

cricket finals

• By Louis Day

SUMNER HAVE failed to make

it into the finals of the one day

competition for the first time

in four years after losing to

Burnside on Saturday.

Sumner travelled to Burnside

Park missing two top order batsmen.

The loss was their fourth

consecutive defeat.

After losing the toss, Sumner

batted first in wet conditions.

They lost regular wickets and

were all out for a disappointing

81.

In reply, Burnside went on the

attack and, in spite of losing four

wickets, made short work of the

total.

Dean Smith continued his

good form with three wickets,

but 81 was not enough to defend,

said Sumner club captain Dan

Vann

He said his side could not contain

their disappointment after

not reaching the finals.

“We were unfortunate to again

lose the toss in bowler-friendly

conditions for the third week

in a row but we still underperformed.”

Mr Vann said his side desperately

missed their skipper Johnny

Beveridge, who is currently playing

for the New Zealand Police

cricket team in Australia.

Sumner now turn their attention

to the two-day competition,

in which they are currently at the

top of the table.

REAL ESTATE

A pleasant surprise - “As Is, Where Is”

214B Mt Pleasant Rd, Mt Pleasant

Auction: From 12pm, Thursday 13 December, Harcourts Grenadier, 98 Moorhouse Ave – unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0133

Serving as an immaculate example of an as

is, where is property, this partially repaired

four-bedroom home enjoys exceptional

north-facing views over the sea and coastline

offering the ultimate hillside lifestyle.

With remediation three-quarters complete,

the vendors have now exceeded their cap and

don’t wish to proceed any further with the

remaining repairs, and therefore, they offer

this superbly presented home to a new buyer

who can live incredibly comfortably while

they finish the last of the work required in

their own time.

The property’s cladding has been repaired

and a new kitchen installed. The kitchen

exudes modern style with its granite

benchtops and breakfast bar, all benefiting

from an elevated outlook over the sea that

stretches across to Ferrymead.

The multi-level living layout includes a

breath-taking lounge on the central portion of

the first floor which features a double height

ceiling that contributes a sense of grandeur to

the space. From there, a small set of steps lead

you up to the kitchen and open plan dining

and living area where you can admire the

unobstructed views beyond. Lots of balconies

and decks provide outdoor flow and there is

some good flat lawn for children to play.

Four good sized bedrooms are serviced by

three bathrooms and a powder room, with the

master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe

and an ensuite with a spa bath. One bedroom

has a kitchenette and could be used to hosts

guest or run Airbnb. There’s great level drive

on access with turning and internal access

triple car garaging which are further enticing

features of the property.

Located within easy reach of the various

coastal suburbs that lead you around to

Sumner Beach, this property also enjoys a

relatively straight-forward commute into the

city centre which will take you less than 20

minutes by car. Zoned and within walking

distance to Mt Pleasant School (decile 10).

Being sold on an as is, where is basis, this

property offers comfort and presents buyers

with the opportunity to complete the home

to their taste. Possibly the best we have

marketed!

Open Homes: Wednesday, Saturday &

Sunday 3:15pm - 4:00pm.
