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.

We recently released

Safer Sumner has approached

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board for a grant

of $16,000 after the police were

unable to fund the cameras.

The board will make a decision

in February when it works

through the grant requests.

Safer Sumner’s Kath Preston

said in her submission to the

board, it was in desperate need

of support after the cost of the

cameras skyrocketed from $4000

to $20,000.

“The reason why the cost of the

cameras has gone up is because

we have had to align our cameras

with the cameras that the police

use.”

The cameras would be

installed at the entrance to

camera monitoring incoming

WE TAKE a walk down memory lane on

pages 6 and 7 today, looking back at the

old British Hotel, after the recent closure of

the Hell Fire Club.

Every port has its rough and tumble

pubs and in Lyttelton it would be fair to say the British has its

conveyor belt of great old stories.

No doubt other pubs in Lyttelton have had theirs, too.

Our headline: ‘Bikies, booze, brawls’ does fairly well sum up

the British. If anyone was looking for a decent scrap, there’d be

plenty of takers there.

As former seaman Jack Mahoney mentioned: “Someone was

saying to me the other day after the world title fight, I’ve seen a

better fight in the British and they’re not wrong.”

Akaroa rock not suitable for drilling

DEEP-BORE injection is

unlikely to be a suitable method

for disposing of Akaroa’s treated

wastewater, test drilling has

shown.

The city council has completed

drilling at two sites on the outskirts

of Akaroa.

Test drilling and site remediation

cost

$550,000. At

this stage,

there are no

plans to do

more drilling.

The first

hole, on Old

Kylie Hills

French Rd,

was drilled

to a depth of

250m.

The second hole, at the site of

the new wastewater treatment

plant at the top of Old Coach Rd,

was drilled to a depth of 150m.

Senior project manager

Kylie Hills said the drilling

showed the rock to be highly

competent (lightly fractured)

basalt and tuff (a mix of rock

and volcanic ash).

“We wanted to know if the

area around Akaroa was suitable

for deep-bore injection,” Mr

Hills said.

“We found some fracturing,

but the fractures across the target

depths were high in mineral

deposits, which had in-filled and

restricted many of the flow paths

through the rock.”

The city council is looking at

options for recycling Akaroa’s

wastewater before its consent

to discharge into the harbour

expires in 2020.

Options include reusing the

treated wastewater to irrigate

trees or pasture in nearby areas,

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

WASTE: Consent to discharge wastewater into Akaroa Harbour expires in 2020, but deep-bore

injection has been ruled out.

or to provide non-drinking

water for garden watering and

toilet flushing in Akaroa.

Deep-bore was also being

investigated.

But Mr Hills said it would take

many more holes than expected

to achieve the flow rate needed

to dispose of the town’s wastewater,

making it much more

expensive than other options

available.

Mr Hills said the core

recovered from the first

hole is now on loan to the

Canterbury University’s

geology department.

“They’re pretty interested in

it because it’s the only drill core

ever recovered at these depths

from the Akaroa area,” he said.

“It offers a unique insight into

the volcanic history of Banks

Peninsula.”

Lyttelton’s British Hotel: Bikies,

The bar that occupied

the basement in the old

British Hotel building

has lost its liquor

licence and closed.

Julia Evans looks back

on the colourful history

of the iconic Lyttelton

landmark

FOR THE last 71 years, the

British Hotel has been a watering

hole for sailors, Lyttelton locals,

cross-dressers, punk rockers,

Epitaph Riders motorcycle gang

members and even Iggy Pop.

But, while the bar in the hotel

on the corner of Norwich Quay

and Oxford St – most recently

known as the Hell Fire Club –

has closed its doors for now, it is

remembered for its history.

The British Hotel first opened

in 1874, and was named after its

predominantly United Kingdombased

clientele.

It reopened in 1947 after a

fire and, ever since, the hotel

has been home to a number of

infamous bars – most notably

The Dive.

Other incarnations have

included El Santo Porteno before

the quakes, the Back Bar and the

British Basement.

HISTORY: The British Hotel has had a long and colourful history since it opened in 1947 on the

corner of Lyttelton’s Norwich Quay and Oxford St.

Former sailor Jack Mahoney

lived and drank at the hotel every

day for 17 years from 1960 when

he wasn’t at sea.

“The best part was the great

people who lived there. There

aren’t many of them left, but they

were good people.”

But there was a flip side, in

which the bar earned a notorious

reputation for fights.

“There were quite a few fights,

but no one really got hurt. A

punch on the chin never hurt

anyone.”

He said boxers like Joesph

Parker would not have held their

own at the British.

“Someone was saying to me

the other day after the world title

fight, I’ve seen a better fight in the

British and they’re not wrong.”

The bar was notorious for after

hours parties with black out curtains

pulled so the police couldn’t

see what was going on inside.

“On Sundays, when the ferry

was in, all the boys would come

up from the ferry and start

drinking, which was a big no, no

on Sundays, but we covered for

them,” Mr Mahoney said.

“I was playing pool and the

next thing I get a tap on the

shoulder by the senior sergeant. I

told him they were my guests . . .

and gave him phoney names.”

Mr Mahoney said the next

minute the police were back and

asking for the names – which he

couldn’t remember.

“But he left it. They knew it was

better off them drinking there

than on the streets.”

Canada native Guy Daigneault

owned the hotel from 1961-1974,

he opened the Back Bar in 1967,

when 6pm drinking restrictions

were lifted.

“The place was so well-known

around the world. I was in

Montreal once and someone said

there’s Guy over there from the

British. I couldn’t believe it.”

raise my four kids there. But it

was hard work, I devoted my life

to that pub . . . I spent a lot of

money doing it up.”

The lease was taken over by

late Lyttelton legends, Hilary and

Jack McKenna, throughout the

1970s and 80s.

Mr Mahoney said the McKennas

and Mr Daigneault took him in

and treated him like family.

During their stint, the hotel

became home to the first gay bar

in the city.

The British was divided into

three separate bars. The Back Bar

COLOURFUL: Everyone from Lyttelton locals to seamen and

motor-cycle gang members have visited the British Hotel.

– the gay bar out the back, The

Dive – which was down in the

basement and upstairs a bar for

Lyttelton locals.

The hotel made its mark

throughout the 80s by hosting

early gigs of The Androidss and

Louie and the Hotsticks.

Famously, United States punk

icon Iggy Pop watched The

Androidss play there in 1979.

Their set included a cover of

Iggy Pop’s The Passenger and he

shared a whisky with them at the

bar afterwards.

“They’re tough as bitches, but

they’re beautiful,” Iggy Pop was

quoted by The Press.

In the same decade, it was

often filled with members of the

Epitaph Riders motor-cycle gang.

The gang was formed in

Christchurch in 1969 and was involved

in the country’s first gang

war with the Devils Henchmen

in 1974.

But the building was closed after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake,

before it was saved from

the bulldozer in 2015 by Rebecca

Lovell-Smith and her husband,

Christian Carruthers.

Almost daily, former patrons

stopped by the hotel to tell tales

of its history.

Ms Lovell-Smith said it was

moments like that which made

the building’s ongoing restoration

worth while.

“I get a lot of people who come

out just to talk to you about their

experiences. I had a sailor or a

fisherman just yesterday tell me

stories about how he used to stay

there when he was in port. He

said he remembers the publican

falling down the stairs,” she said.

And she promises pints will be

pulled in the basement again.

“We just need to do a bit more

work. But even next year something

will be there,” she said.

“We want to honour all the

different stages of the bar from

way back, to more recently. It’s

a good place that has good

bands.”

Crime camera funding

•From page 1

The plan for the cameras

was prompted by a spate

of aggravated burglaries in

Sumner and Mt Pleasant

last year.

A 31-year-old man was

jailed for three years in

relation to them and other

offences.

Ms Preston said additional

cameras would also

be needed with Sumner Rd

expected to reopen next

year, which is expected to

cost an additional $20,000.

“When we started

going down this track it

was nearly two years ago

and at that point, we didn’t

know if the road was going

to reopen.”

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member and city

councillor Sara Templeton

supported the installation

of security cameras.

“I know that this is a

real issue in the area with

a range of burglaries and

incidents with cars, trailers

and boats.”

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell

Latham said the cameras

would only be part of the

solution.

“From my perspective,

the cameras must be complemented

by a sufficient

level of monitoring from

a credible organisation,

that is the New Zealand

Police.”

Brutally Honest

by Melanie Brown

The tell-all memoir from the loudest, proudest Spice Girl -

and the truth behind the headlines

As one-fifth of the iconic Spice Girls and judge on X Factor

and America’s Got Talent, Melanie Brown, a.k.a Scary

Spice, has been an international star since her twenties.

Brutally Honest is an expose of the struggles and acute pain

that lay behind the glamour and success.

With deep personal insight, remarkable frankness and

trademark Yorkshire humour, the book removes the mask

of fame and reveals the true story behind the Spice Girls, as

well as the horror of her most recent marriage and her 10

year struggle to be free.

Warrior

by Simon Mannering

Simon Mannering is one of elite sport’s great enigmas. From

2005 to 2018 he was a regular fixture in the Warriors and

Kiwis rugby league teams and has captained both. He is one

of only a handful of players to have played 300 NRL games

for one club and, remarkably, he’s the only one who has ever

done it flying back and forth across the Tasman every second

weekend. Yet little is known about him as he shuns the spotlight

and seldom does interviews.

Warriors and former All Blacks doctor John Mayhew rates

Simon alongside Richie McCaw and Buck Shelford for sheer

toughness and his ability to play through pain and illness is

legendary.

While the Warriors have been up and down over the years,

Simon Mannering has maintained a consistently high standard

of play and regularly led tackle counts.

Yet he was not a sporting prodigy. In Warrior, Simon explains

how he transformed himself from a sports-mad kid with

mediocre talents into one of the greats of New Zealand sport.

A Diamond in the Dust

by Frauke Bolten-Boshammer

The powerful true story of how one woman turned outback dust

into a diamond empire.

Within minutes of landing in Kununurra, Frauke Bolten had made

up her mind to get on a plane back home to Germany. The dusty

frontier town was no place for a woman. However, Frauke stayed,

determined to help her husband carve out a new life farming.

Tragedy struck just three years later when Friedrich took his own

life and she was left to raise their family alone.

Twenty-six years after she sold her first necklace, Kimberley Fine

Diamonds in Kununurra is now home to one of the world’s largest

collections of Argyle pink diamonds, with a client list that includes

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Frauke is credited for not only

pioneering an industry, but for putting the tiny outback town and its

precious diamonds on the map.

A Diamond in the Dust is a tale of love and loss, hardship and

heartache, but ultimately the inspiring story of how a young girl

from Germany overcame tragedy to pioneer a diamond empire in

one of the most unforgiving terrains on earth.

The Rescuers

by Laura Greaves

Dogs are renowned for their loyalty, and those saved from

animal shelters or rescue groups seem to be especially

devoted to the humans who have offered them a second

chance. In this extraordinary collection, meet the brave

dogs that have shown incredible courage – even risking

death – to protect their people.

There’s Leala, the Staffy who raced for help when her

two-year-old owner fell in a dam; Buddy, the labrador who

licked his owner awake to save her from a house fire; and

Brian, the pit bull who valiantly fought off three other dogs

to protect his owner.

From unforgettable moments of courage to heart-warming

tales of true loyalty, these are the stories of some of the

most heroic rescue dogs in the world.

Lyttelton band to hold benefit

concert for seafarers centre

• By Louis Day

LYTTELTON country band

The Eastern is holding a benefit

concert with proceeds going

towards the Lyttelton Seafarers

Centre.

The Light House Benefit

Concert will be held on December

22 at Blue Smoke in

Woolston.

Chairman of the Lyttelton

Seafarers Centre Charitable Trust

Reverend John McLister said the

centre was seriously underfunded

and the proceeds made from the

concert would go a long way in

ensuring they could continue to

support seafarers.

The centre has had over 10,000

visits from seafarers docking in

Lyttelton since it opened three

years ago.

The centre provides seafarers

with assistance, amenities, care,

support and Wi-Fi so they can

speak to their family back home.

Rev McLister said seafarers

were often poorly paid and

exploited by the companies that

they worked for.

He spoke of the experience of a

HELPING HAND: Chairman of the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre

Charitable Trust Reverend John McLister with three seamen

from China.

Filipino seafarer called Benji.

“For every US$100 he converts

into Kiwi dollars, Benji is $40 out

of pocket on the exchange rate.”

Rev McLister said without the

support of the community, the

centre would struggle to continue

to help seafarers like Benji.

“Last month, that man wanted

to go to the city, so he called a

taxi. The taxi driver charged him

US$100 for a ride into town. That

is 10 per cent of what Benji earns

in a month”

Sumner library to close over Xmas

REPAIRS: The Sumner Library will close on Christmas Eve.

SUMNER LIBRARY will be

closed between Christmas and

New Year to allow work to be

done to fix “minor defects” on the

building.

The Matuku Takotako: Sumner

Centre will close on Christmas

Eve and reopen on New Year’s

Eve.

“We’re taking the opportunity

over the Christmas period to allow

contractors to complete some

work on the polished ground

floor,” city council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said.

“The work is part of some

minor defects still outstanding

from when the facility was built

in 2017, and is a normal part of

any new build.”

Ms Robertson said the Christmas

holiday period was chosen

to cause as little disruption to the

community as possible.

“All the other Christchurch

City Libraries in the network are

staying open between Christmas

and New Year, so people can still

have plenty of options for getting

their holiday fix of library items

and services.”

Normal hours at the Matuku

Takotako: Sumner Centre will

resume from January 3, after the

New Year holidays.

CAROL SINGING in Lyttelton

is set for a return this Christmas

after a seven-year absence.

Three of Lyttelton’s historic

churches were destroyed in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

putting an end to the longstanding

custom of carol singing

at church.

However, after the reopening

of the restored St Saviour’s

Anglican Church, Lyttelton residents

will have the opportunity

to sing Christmas carols again

on Friday.

Vicar of the Lyttelton Parish

John McLister said he was

delighted to see a Lyttelton

tradition of over 150 years be

restored.

Carol singing to return

to Lyttelton church

“It will be lovely to see this

tradition return to Lyttelton,

there is something magical

about singing carols in a church

surrounded by stained-glass

windows and with candles

burning. Before the quakes,

all the local churches had

carol services. The midnight

Christmas service was a bit of a

Carols will be held in the

church at 7pm, 17 Winchester St.

Music from The Saints

offer.

Mulled wine will be served

Learning to share stuff

OF ALL THE things I

expected to deal with

as a stay-at-home-dad,

Vittoria being mean to

another baby was not one

of them.

Maybe that was a foolish

assumption, I don’t know,

I’ve only got the one kid

remember.

What are you supposed

to do in that situation?

And what is the other parent

supposed to do?

Is there a book on this?

On Tuesday I took Vittoria

to a Plunket playgroup

in Papanui on the advice of

a fellow full-time dad.

It was an enjoyable

morning, the sun was out

and there was plenty of

toys and other kids for Vittoria

to play with.

During the course of her

rambling about exploring,

she went inside and sat

next to another wee lass,

only a couple of months

younger than her who was

playing with a book.

So, naturally, she steals

said book off the poor kid.

The other baby’s mum

was really good about it,

even told her daughter to

share.

However, Vittoria was

not satisfied with just taking

her book. Oh no, she

started grabbing anything

this kid was holding,

ignoring my vain pleas for

her to desist or share.

Eventually the other

baby got sick of Vittoria’s

shtick and went to grab her

book back.

Vittoria promptly hit her

in the head with it.

I was mortified, I’d never

seen her hit anyone else

before (she’s hit me heaps,

but not in anger).

The wee lass started

crying and I profusely

apologised to the mum

We will deliver!

VITTORIA

& Matt

and told Vittoria off – but I

don’t know if I did enough?

Vittoria’s had bigger kids

do similar to her and I

didn’t know what I should

have done then either.

Other people’s kids seem

like a minefield topic.

Either way, I took Vittoria

back outside to where

there were older kids than

her so she couldn’t cause

any more grief.

I suppose I’ll get better at

this, I really don’t think I

want a bully for a daughter,

regardless of how dang

cute she is.

In a much nicer update,

we took Vittoria to the

recent Santa Parade in the

city.

I’m stoked the old floats

like Mother Goose and the

Haunted House are still

about. I haven’t been to a

parade in quite a few years

so it was cool to see the old

classics and share them

with Vittoria.

THE MT Pleasant Community

Centre will hold a Christmas

gathering for people without

holidays.

Community development coordinator

Kathy Bartlett said she

did not want anyone who did not

want to spend Christmas alone to

have to.

“I think we all know it can

be an isolating time of year if

you don’t have the cosy family

atmosphere.”

There will be a barbecue and

guests are welcome to bring

a shared plate and their own

refreshments to the gathering.

Ms Bartlett said everyone will

be welcome.

“We know that there are a wide

range of people here. There are

lonely, older people, but there are

also recent immigrants that don’t

have family here.”

Deck the halls

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.

Go natural

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on

the table.

Tinsel town

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to

create extra wow.

Table setting

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner

down the middle of the table and add greenery and

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses

or hangman or just draw pictures.

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out

Pintrest. Here you will find every style and every

technique to make sure your home looks like a

Christmas wonderland this festive season.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD

This year has been particularly special in that so many of our past students and staff

have responded to our call to join a new group. Named Rauru, the group has been

formed to strengthen and support our Marian College community. Past students and

staff of Marian College, St Mary’s College (Christchurch) and McKillop College, are

warmly invited to register for Rauru and help us shape the future of Marian.

Collective dialogue and strategic visioning are underway as we prepare for a new

school. Work includes development of a brief to ensure our Special Catholic Character,

values and culture are captured and reflected in our new school.

We appreciate Marian College is part of the bigger picture and we support the Bishop

in taking due care of process and in making informed decisions for the benefit of the

Catholic Diocese of Christchurch as a whole. The old saying is true – good things

take time.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees, our school staff and community, and members of

the Marian Foundation for your support and fantastic work throughout 2018.

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy a well-earned holiday. We look forward to

having you back refreshed, inspired and ready for 2019 at Marian College.

And finally, congratulations to our 2018 Marian leavers:

we wish you all the very best and please stay in touch.

Wishing you good health and blessings this Christmas.

Jan Paterson

Marian College Board of Trustees

THE GIFT OF GIVING

Our Young Vinnies Group helps support the important work of the

Society of St Vincent de Paul. Recently the group spent a lunchtime

wrapping Christmas presents for the Vinnie’s Christmas Party for

people in need.

Marian College has a long tradition of service. Both students and staff

members are actively involved and contribute positively to the wider

community. All students complete at least six hours of meaningful

service within the school and community every year.

PRIZE WINNERS

WHIRLWIND

WOW TRIP

Congratulations to Catherine Ryan (right)

and Louise Daly (left) who have been

awarded 2018 Marian College dux and

proxime accessit respectively.

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson says major prize winners

demonstrate exceptional performance

and dedication across all aspects of life

at Marian College – in academia, special

character, leadership, music, sport,

environment, culture and service.

The Marian College PTA Grace Awards

are very special awards for senior students

who quietly go about their learning, being

kind and caring, participating in school

life and sometimes managing through

challenges. These students often go ‘under

the radar’ and as the award criteria says

– they just get on with school and are not

always officially recognised. This year

Grace Awards were presented to Mia

Blyth, Renee Rae, Zoe Frame, Molly Ford

and Hannah Manalaysay.

A full list of prize recipients and

photographs are on the College website.

IT’S

BUSINESS TIME!

Recently, Year 10 Marian College

students had the opportunity to pitch

their business ideas to a panel of judges

as part of the three-day Young Enterprise

BP Business Challenge programme.

The hands-on learning event creates

opportunities for students to develop

their skills, engage with local business

people and learn how a good business

works. The programme covers learning

in English, Mathematics and Statistics,

Social Sciences, Digital Technology and

Commerce subjects.

Described by some as the highlight

of the year, senior students studying

textiles at Marian College have the

opportunity to travel to Wellington for a

two-day whirlwind WOWtrip. The group

experienced the World of WearableArt

Awards Show, explored two tertiary

institutes offering textile and design

programmes and visited the Beehive.

“The show was incredible with amazing

outfits and dancers. This was a wonderful

way to end the term,” says Year 12 Marian

College student Phoebe O’Regan.

The group also attended the Suffrage 125

exhibition Whakatū Wāhine at Museum of

New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

Boy Erased

A Memoir of Identity, Faith, and Family

by Garrard Conley

The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life

in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was

terrified and conflicted about his sexuality.

When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was

outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing

decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion

therapy program that promised to “cure” him of homosexuality; or risk

losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his

life. Through an institutionalised Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was

supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his

faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal

journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true

self and forgiveness.

By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces

the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heartbreaking,

at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.

She Was The Quiet One

by Michele Campbell

The gripping new novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Michele Campbell

Because murderers are never who you expect…

She was the quiet one… but is she guilty?

For twin sisters Rose and Bel, enrolling at the prestigious new boarding school

should have been a fresh start. But with its sinister rituals and traditions, Odell

soon brings out a deadly rivalry between the sisters.

For Sarah and husband Heath, the chance to teach at Odell seems like the best

thing that ever happened to their small family – a chance to rise through the ranks

and put the past behind them.

Until one dark night ends in murder.

But who’s guilty and who’s telling the truth? And who’s been in on it all along..?

Christmas

Pirate’s Corner

Boaties’ Xmas list

I’M LOOKING out over the

Opawaho/Heathcote River as I

think about this column.

The willows are resplendent

in their greenery, the birdlife is

out in force and in chorus, and

nature is signalling the approach

of Christmas.

And, of course, as our work

lives wind down, our family

lives are winding up as we

frantically buy presents, set

menus, and try and lose that

last pound, knowing that pound

will be replaced with five more

after Christmas Day. And we

wouldn’t change this for the

world.

Because Christmas is a time

to put aside the weight of the

world, put on some weight, and

focus on family, friends and

a small period of feasting to

celebrate a year that will have

been many things to us all.

For me, 2018 has seen a

dramatic change from being

Opposition. And it’s been a time

of renewal for my wife Chris

and I as we’ve thought about

what being in opposition means

and how we can still make a

difference for the Port Hills and

for New Zealand. I’ve embraced

the opportunity and can’t wait

for 2019.

It’s also an appropriate

moment to acknowledge what

we are all trying to achieve,

whether we are on one political

side or the other – and that

is a better life for all New

Zealanders. So I would like

to wish my Parliamentary

colleagues, Ruth Dyson and

Eugenie Sage and their families,

a merry Christmas.

And from my whanau to you

all – a very merry Christmas.

If you’re heading away for the

holidays, I hope you travel safely

and get the rest and relaxation

you’ve worked so hard for this

year. And for those who are

staying here, well, I often ask

myself why I would want to

head away from the loveliest

part of Christchurch – the Port

Hills. Enjoy all the pleasures of

our beautiful electorate over the

Christmas holiday break.

CHRISTMAS IS not far away

and for those of you who are

thinking about what to buy your

boatie husband, wife, boyfriend,

girlfriend, daughter or son, here

are some ideas from Gary, Santa’s

new boating adviser.

1. A new lifejacket. Throw the

old kapok one away and get a

modern lifejacket that will keep

your loved one afloat should you

end up in the water. Go to your

local boating retailer and ensure

you buy the right jacket for the

type of boating they will partake

in. Make sure there is a crotch

strap fitted.

2. A waterproof hand-held

VHF radio. This is a must and

can be purchased at any good

boat shop or chandler.

3. A personal locator beacon

(PLB). For those boating in lakes

or areas where there is no cellphone

coverage, these are a musthave

item. Remember to register

them when purchased, all the

information is in the instructions.

4. First-aid kit. This is a nobrainer;

every boat should have

one.

5. Sunscreen. It might seem

silly, but nothing can spoil a day

quicker than sunburn.

6. Wind and waterproof jacket.

Sometimes the weather can turn,

even if the forecast was initially

good. Hypothermia is not something

you want.

7. A good pair of sunglasses.

The glare on the water is not good

for visibility or the eyes.

8. A thermos so you can either

have a nice cuppa or cold drink

on hand.

9. A boating safety course.

Put this list somewhere safe,

give the items some thought,

leave a note for Santa, and I am

sure he will be able to assist. On

that note, remember two things:

“If you can’t be heard, you can’t

be helped” and “nobody’s faster

than disaster.”

Take care out there. Have a

great Christmas and New Year.

Heathcote chasing historic season

• By Gordon Findlater

HEATHCOTE CRICKET Club

are one win away from becoming

the first winners of metro

cricket’s one-day championship.

On Sunday, Heathcote defeated

St Albans by 125 runs in

their metro championship semifinal

at Heathcote Domain. The

win means they will now host

Merivale-Papanui in the championship

final on Sunday.

The championship grade was

established this year, replacing

the former senior A grade. The

championship consists of some

former teams from the senior A

grade, such as Heathcote, and

reserve teams from some of the

bigger premiership clubs.

Heathcote are also looking

like early favourites to gain

promotion to the premiership

at the end of the summer. The

top overall side on points from

the one-day, T20, and two-day

formats in the championship will

have the option to move to the

premiership next summer.

“That’s been the objective since

the start of the season. We’re off

to a really good start and feel we

have a really complete team more

than capable of winning promotion,”

said Heathcote bowler Ben

Cochrane.

Batting first on Sunday, Heathcote

got off to a bright start.

Captain Jordan Horrell and Matt

House put on an opening stand

of 53. Horrell went on to make

ON A ROLL: Heathcote are one win away from capturing

the one-day championship title and going unbeaten in the

competition.

52, while No 3 Nick Durham

top-scored with 76.

Healthy contributions from

the lower order, highlighted by

a quick fire 31 from 20 deliveries

by Craig Davenport, helped

Heathcote through to a healthy

total of 257/7 from their 50 overs.

In defending their total, two

wickets in the opening four overs

to Cochrane and Nick Turner

put Heathcote on the front foot.

Consistent wicket-taking meant

St Albans were unable to ever

mount any real challenge, with

just two players scoring more

than 20.

Heathcote dismissed St Albans

in the 36th over for 132. Tom

Payne was the best of the bowlers

with 3-20, Turner picked up

3-32, while Cochrane finished

with 2-25.

That continued an unbeaten

run for Heathcote in the one-day

competition after recording eight

wins in the round-robin.

It was a busy weekend for

SPORTS

Heathcote. On Saturday they

increased their promotion hopes

with a strong opening day in

their two-day match with East

Christchurch Shirley.

Heathcote hold a strong first

innings lead after batting first

and scoring 245. Payne top

scored with 75, while Horrell

contributed 57. Young Shirley

Boys’ High School seamer Marek

Bungard then did the damage,

with an impressive 7-22 as he

helped his side roll East Shirley

for 107.

Meanwhile, Sumner have

a first innings lead in their

two-day match against Merivale-

Papanui at Edgar MacIntosh

Park. After electing to bowl

first Sumner dismissed their

opposition for 154. Jonny

Percasky 4-51 and Dan Vann

3-41, were the best of the

bowlers.

Sumner just managed to

eclipse the total in their first

innings. Opener George Moore

top-scored with 65.

Motoring

• By Ross Kiddie

MY WIFE will tell you I’m not a

big fan of supermarkets, and she

is right, I see them as a necessary

evil.

However, there is one thing

that I find favour with, and that is

when it comes to pay, the item is

scanned through the barcode and

that is what it costs.

It should be that simple when it

comes to buying cars – one price,

no discounts, what you see on the

price tag is what you pay.

Honda has utilised that price

promise concept for several years,

and it’s been very successful for

the company, people rock up and

there is no need to talk turkey

over the price.

Toyota, too, have just incorporated

that method of selling and

judging by recent sales figures it’s

keeping Toyota in a comfortable

position as the end-of-year sales

figures roll in.

Toyota’s success this year has

also been buoyed by the arrival

of a new Corolla, a car which

doesn’t look that much different

to that of the previous generation,

but underneath it has had some

significant changes for comfort,

safety and driveability.

The Corolla lands with a choice

of five different models, two of

those are hybrid. Regular readers

will recall my hybrid evaluation

at the beginning of last month,

and it served to convince me that

hybrids are a viable future as we

head into the electric revolution.

However, this evaluation surrounds

the mid-spec SX model

which has a traditional power

plant, a 2-litre four-cylinder

petrol engine. Gone is the 1.8-litre

unit of the previous generation;

in the name of progress, the new

power plant is more refined than

before, has more power and marginally

greater fuel economy.

Toyota rates the new engine

with 125kW at the top end and

200Nm of torque, up 21 per cent

and 15 per cent respectively. The

points of delivery are quite tall

in the rev band – 6600rpm and

4800rpm, however, such are the

overall outputs there is still a

broad spread of power. Take into

account as well, the engine drives

through a paddle-shift continuously

variable transmission which

is stepped through 10 points,

which means the engine isn’t

loaded.

Together there is good harmony

and fluid response to accelerator

input. The engine feels quite zingy

and strong, it works the rev band

freely and, I guess, you’d expect

nothing less, Toyota has built millions

of Corolla engines and I’d be

surprised if it didn’t feel right.

It is also an engine which is

light on fuel use. That’s a necessary

criteria in these days of wayward

fuel prices. Toyota claims

a six-litre per 100km (47mpg)

combined cycle average, which

sits well with the fuel usage readout

in the test car. It was showing

a constant 7.2l/100km (39mpg)

Fire rages, homes at risk

during a mix of pre-Christmas

inner-city driving and a Port Hills

loop. At 100km/h the engine

is working over slowly at just

1500rpm, returning an instantaneous

fuel usage consumption of

just 4.5l/100km (63mpg).

My wife had a work Christmas

function to attend in Barrys Bay,

so the Corolla was used to travel

to that event.

The Christchurch/Akaroa

Highway isn’t my favourite piece

of road given the volume of traffic,

but the Corolla responded

well on the few overtaking

opportunities that presented

themselves. An overtaking time

of 6.8sec is possible (80km/h-

120km/h), while from a standstill

it will also launch to 100km/h in

9.2sec.

Those figures give you some

indication of its zest and ability. It

also handles nicely with beautiful

steering and strong steering

feedback. That’s no surprise,

over the years Corollas destined

for our market have had chassis

engineering developed for our

roads and that certainly showed

on the twists and turns of the

Akaora hill.

Add in the development

work Toyota has done with the

chassis in the latest generation

car and you have a dynamic

handling vehicle, one which

belies its role as a mainstream

hatchback.

Elsewhere, the Corolla stands

out for its quality of build and

high amount of fitment. At the

new no-haggle price of $32,490,

the SX includes all the features

you need for convenience and, of

course, comfort has been a high

manufacturing priority.

On the subject of prices, an

entry-level base model Corolla

is available for $29,990, and that

would be the car for me, but if

you want all the bells and whistles

then the ZR at $37,490 is also

there to tempt.

According to Toyota’s

advertising slogan, nothing has

changed for the new generation

Corolla – except everything. Sure,

it looks like the Corolla we have

come to know and love, and it

certainly drives like a Corolla

should, the only thing is that it is

much better in every respect.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

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 agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

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 agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

about se ting up a mobile busine s

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail
