A LYTTELTON man had a lucky

escape after a fire started in the

ceiling of his home early yesterday

morning.

Lyttelton chief fire officer Mark

Buckley said working smoke

alarms saved the man’s life.

St John spokeswoman Chrissy

Hamilton said the man was

taken to hospital with minor

injuries and was treated for smoke

inhalation.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand attended the Ticehurst

Rd fire around 2.45am.

It took an hour and a half to put

the fire out, which started when

a ceiling cavity caught fire in the

roof.

Mr Buckley said the kitchen

and lounge area had “quite a bit

of damage” and the ceiling cavity

was 80 to 90 per cent burnt.

He said it would be “hard to

say” what the outcome might

have been if the man didn’t have

working smoke alarms.

“It certainly wouldn’t have been

as good as what it is.”

Mr Buckley said he believed the

man hadn’t owned the house for

very long before the fire.

from the editor’s desk

RICHARD STEVENS was probably a

fairly ordinary sort of bloke, living a fairly

routine sort of life.

But just over a 100 years ago, he was

thrust into an overseas adventure he

wouldn’t return from: World War 1.

Today we revisit Richard’s life in a small sort of way. The cross

which bears his name on display at the Sumner Redcliffs RSA

on Armistice Day has been claimed by his great niece, Annette

Sowman.

Richard’s war started and ended in that hell hole for Kiwis

and Australians alike – Gallipoli.

He was wounded at Chunuk Bair in August 1915 and shipped

to Egypt where he died the following month.

This Christmas spare a moment for Richard and the others

like him who never came home.

CHRISTMAS PRESENT: A District Plan change will now make

it possible for coastal residents living in the High Flood

Darrell Latham said it was a

“momentous occasion”.

He said it was vindication for

city councillor David East,

Coastal-Burwood Community

board chairwoman Kim Money

and deputy chairman Tim

“I am absolutely over the

Christchurch Coastal

welcomed the decision.

“It was getting so close to

he said.

Bur Dr Latham said it is now

“critically important” the city

how it plans to investigate the ​

omission.

He said it is important to

have this information so he can

report back to the community

and ensure they have confidence

Redcliffs Residents’

decision will be “extremely

popular”.

“It is an acknowledgement

Fire rages, homes at risk

fond memories of the old pub

The article on the British

Hotel also struck a chord

with readers, who share

their stories of the iconic

haunt

HISTORY: The British Hotel on

the corner of Oxford St and

Norwich Quay has a long and

colourful history.

Peter Thompson – I read

your interesting article in Bay

Harbour News about the British

Hotel. I would like to point out

a few points that might be of

interest to you.

I was property manager for

Dominion Breweries from

1982 to 1992. In this role I was

responsible for some 148 hotels

and taverns throughout the

South Island. The British Hotel

was one of my responsibilities.

The land and buildings were

owned at the time by the then

Lyttelton Borough Council,

which in turn was leased

to various operators – Guy

Daigneault being one such party.

At the time of starting my role

with DB, the British was under

DB control and sub-leased to

Margaret and Fred Archibald.

I believe they had been

operating the hotel for several

years before starting my role

in DB. Mr and Mrs Archibald

operated the hotel until about

1985 or 1986, not too sure.

At the time of their departure

to take up the lease of the

European Hotel in Dunedin,

DB sold its interest in the British

Hotel.

On one occasion, the United

States commander of an ice

breaker wanted to use the

Basement Bar for his crew

and sort out a price with Mr

Archibald. He stated a price

(can’t recall the amount), say

$1000, the commander peeled off

US$1000.

Mr Archibald of course was

referring to New Zealand dollars.

I believe it was a great night.

Another instance was the

upgrade of the tank room,

which needed the floor to be replastered.

To do this with minimal

disruption to trade, the work was

undertaken over the Easter break

closing the bar late Thursday,

plastering the floor on Good

Friday.

For Saturday while the

plasterer was setting, DB parked

a tanker on the street with hose

feed to the bars – one brand only.

On the Sunday, I had two

carpenters attend to various

repair work.

During a tea break a phone

conversation was heard between

Mr Archibald and what appeared

to be a female with Mr Archibald

laying down the law as to an

outstanding debt.

Stories of the British

•From page 5

The safe was open at the time,

with Mr Archibald asking me if I

noticed anything different about

the safe. To me the safe was like

any other similar safe, common

to pubs.

However, Mr Archibald asked

me to follow the line of the

wallpaper above the safe to the

back of the safe.

Low and behold, the safe had

no back to it and apparently this

had been the case for many years.

I’m sure if the customers of

the British were aware of this, a

quick forward manoeuvre and

its contents could readily be

accessed.

Mr and Mrs Archibald were a

great couple and the British Hotel

continued in safe operational

guidance during their watch.

Jackie Crawford – The

British Hotel was an exciting

place to go and felt slightly risky

when I arrived in Lyttelton 44

years ago.

You never knew who you would

meet or run into. Even a certain

Christchurch lawyer and friends

could be seen there among the

crews from visiting ships from all

around the world, in the bottom

bar of course.

There was a group of working

girls who often travelled with

some crews and the place was

thumping with people. They were

known as ship girls and they used

to travel around New Zealand on

the ships as a lifestyle choice.

Yes, the British was known

globally with the shipping

industry workers. This was precontainer

ships and had a lot

more workers on board.

Visiting seamen were not really

troublesome but Christchurch

locals were and they sometimes

came over and caused fights.

There was never a dull moment

downstairs in the Dive bar and

the girls used to spill up the stairs

alongside local fisherman and a

few hard drinking and singing

locals upstairs.

It was not dull and I used to

make a part time income for a

few years selling instant polaroid

photos to the ship girls and their

chosen partner.

I missed Iggy Pop

unfortunately, but those in

the know used to check out

the shipping arrivals in the

newspaper to see what the action

was like.

All this changed when container

ships became the norm.

However now all that is history.

I still live in Lyttelton. I

It was nice to see the article.

Cross will find a home

•From page 1

Now more than 100 years

later, a cross honouring his

bravery will be claimed by his

great niece. Annette Sowman

has been the first descendant

to contact the Sumner Redcliffs

RSA to claim one of 21 crosses

remembering the men from

Sumner who died in World War

1. The crosses were on display as

part of the RSA’s Armistice Day

commemorations last month.

Mrs Sowman, 79, said it is

special for her to be able to claim

her great uncle’s cross.

“I am thrilled because it is

the only link I have to him,” she

said.

Mrs Sowman said Pvt Stevens

received several medals after the

war that was passed onto her

grandfather Herbert Webb and

then onto her uncle, but she does

not know what has happened to

them since.

She said she will likely place

the cross in her garden or by

a framed photo she has of her

great uncle. Mrs Sowman said

it would have been a “shock”

for the family to not have Pvt

Stevens return home.

“But don’t forget I wasn’t born

until 1939 . . . I don’t remember

my grandparents saying anything.

They didn’t talk about

those things,” she said.

NEVER FORGOTTEN: World War 2 veteran William Joker and

RSA president Pat Boland stand in front of the 21 crosses on

Wakefield Ave.

The Battle of Chunuk Bair

was a major World War 1 battle

fought between the Ottoman defenders

and troops of the British

Empire over control of the peak

in August 1915.

During the battle New

Zealand suffered nearly 2500

casualties including more than

800 dead.

Pvt Stevens is buried at the

Alexandria (Hadra) War Memorial

Cemetery.

He was the seventh child of

Maria Ann (nee Webb) Stevens

and Captain James Finch Stevens.

His father died tragically

on the wreck of sailing ship

Lizzy Guy in 1888.

The RSA is calling for other

descendants to step forward to

take their cross.

President Pat Boland said

anyone else who may have a

family claim, they should get in

touch with them. ​

Consultation for

health hub funding

THAT KEEP ON

Growing

A PROPOSAL to increase

Akaroa’s rates to pay for

the new health hub will

have to get seal of approval

from the community.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board recommended

at its meeting on

Monday to consult on giving

a one-off grant of up to

$1.3 million to the Akaroa

Community Trust.

The trust is fundraising

for the new 12-bed health

hub, which is being built to

replace Akaroa Hospital.

The hospital was damaged

beyond repair during the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The Canterbury District

Health Board is partly

funding the $5.9 million

building, but the trust has

promised to contribute

$2.5 million to the project.

It has raised more than

$1.27 million.

The board is recommending

“The Akaroa Health

Centre is an essential community

providing some funding

towards this project, but we

need to have a conversation

with our community

to gauge whether there is

widespread support for a

“We want to know if the

idea of a targeted rate and,

if so, what time period they

think it should apply for.

It is important their voice

is heard in this decisionmaking

process.”

The targeted rate would

apply to all properties in

the Akaroa and the bays

area. If the city council

agrees, it is likely to apply

from July.

Work on the new centre

is due to be completed in

June.

Plan to slow

speeding

traffic along

Onuku Rd

• By Julia Evans

ONUKU RUNAGA’S battle to

get cars to slow down around its

marae has finally been won.

Concerns have been raised

for a number of years about the

“inappropriate speed” of vehicles

on Onuku Rd, near Akaroa, particularly

when there are events at

the marae.

However, at its meeting on

Monday, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board approved

plans to install two speed bumps.

The road currently has a

100km/h speed limit, but it’s

planned to drop to 40km/h as

part of the Banks Peninsula speed

limit review.

“Whilst the recorded mean

speeds are relatively low

(35.4km/h) and the safe and

appropriate speed for the area

is considered to be 40km/h, the

recorded 85 per cent speed is

43.6km/h, and the maximum

57.1 km/h. Higher vehicle speeds

are inappropriate, in particular

when events or activity are taking

place,” a city council report said.

The installation of the speed

bumps and warning signage will

cost $13,500.

Dalziel questions Gaiety Hall work

• By Julia Evans

AKAROA’S GAIETY Hall is

closed for more upgrades.

However, questions are being

raised over why $215,000 in

maintenance work was not

done at the same time as its

earthquake repairs.

The 139-year-old Italianate

theatre has been closed since the

start of the month and will open

in February. It

was reopened

in 2016 after its

initial quake

repairs.

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel said it

felt like “deja vu”

Lianne

Dalziel

and requested

staff investigate

why the work

was not done together.

“’I think we should follow up

on that because it sounds like

deja vu all over again, we’ve

already learned that lesson from

the SCIRT mechanism,” she said.

Ms Dalziel said there should

have been an attempt to

amalgamate the two projects.

City council programme

manager heritage Richie

Moyle said during 2015 and

2016, earthquake repairs and

strengthening was carried out.

This included a significant

amount of maintenance to the

building.

“At completion of the

earthquake work, the heritage

team prepared a future

maintenance report, as we do on

most buildings,” he said.

“This highlighted maintenance

that would be needed over the

next five years. This included

a roof replacement and

weatherboard repairs.”

City council community

facilities specialist Paul

McKeefry said the work was

“routine maintenance” that

was necessary for all heritage

buildings.

“Like all great heritage

buildings, the Gaiety needs a

little extra attention when it

comes to routine maintenance,”

Funding injection

for Coastal Pathway

THE LONG awaited

Coastal Pathway is one

step closer to being

completed with a $200,000

grant from the Rātā

Foundation.

The 6.5km walking and

cycling track, launched

in 2012, will stretch from

Ferrymead to Scarborough

Beach via Redcliffs and

Sumner.

The city council recently

approved the final stages

of the project, which will

connect Shag Rock to the

Sumner Surf Club.

The pathway is expected

to be finished by August.

The grant will go

towards enhancing the

pathway with signage,

seating, picnic tables,

memorial areas and places

for bird-watching.

Coastal Pathway Group

treasurer and Linwood-

Central-Heathcote

community board

member Tim Lindley said

support for the project had

been “outstanding.”

“We’ve had lots of great

feedback from people

MORE FUNDING: The Rata Foundation has

donated $200,000 to the Coastal Pathway.

using the pathway. We

see cyclists, families walking

along it, and parents

teaching their kids how to

ride their bikes on it,” he

said.

“Often, people want

to go out and do things

and they go ‘let’s head to

Hanmer or Castle Hill’ but

they just can’t get there.

This pathway is right on

our doorstep . . . It’s an

amazing asset.”

He said the pathway

would coincide perfectly

with the relocation of

Redcliffs School from its

original site on Main Rd to

Redcliffs Park.

“The road that connects

Sumner to Redcliffs is

a minor arterial, which

means it’s a heavy traffic

route. Having this pathway

means that children can

walk or bike to and from

school safely.”

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.

Our People

Filling gaps

Gap Filler has led more than 80 projects to make the most of vacant sites

in the central city, including the Dance-O-Mat, Super Street Arcade and

book exchange. Co-founder Ryan Reynolds talks to Julia Evans about his

earthquake refugee cat Mario and how the initiative was created

Tell me a little bit about yourself?

My partner Coralie and I live in

Lyttelton. She was nine months pregnant

the week before we moved. She’s one

of the Gap Filler founders and ran the

organisation for the first few years. We

lived in Addington after we lost our house

in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. We

have always been central city people, but

when we lost that place, we ended up in

Addington for a number of years. Then we

had a baby on the way and we decided to

move to Lyttelton. I grew up in the United

States so all of my family are overseas and

Coralie grew up in Australia, so all her

family is overseas, and Lyttelton is just

the sort of place with a reputation that

preceded it where people look out for one

another. Now we have a three-year-old

daughter and a 14-month-old son.

I hear you’ve adopted an earthquake

refugee? How did your cat Mario come

into the family?

When the house we were living in on

Worcester St, a couple of blocks from

the Cathedral, fell over it was inside the

cordon. A couple of weeks later, we tried to

salvage some of our stuff out of the house,

possibly illegally. He’d been hanging

around in our backyard for a couple

of months before the earthquake. We

wondered if he was one of the neighbours’

cats. When we went back to the wrecked

house, he was there hanging around the

rubble, all covered in dust and it looked

like he hadn’t eaten in a couple of weeks.

We were staying with some friends who

had a small townhouse in Spreydon, so we

turned up with this cat. We said: “Sorry, I

know we don’t have much room, but hope

you don’t mind we’ve got a cat?”

How did you go from electrical

engineering to theatre and film?

Electrical engineering, as it was taught

at my university in the US, was actually

a very creative discipline. It wasn’t a

word that they ever used at all, but it

was a lot of small group work in the lab,

dreaming up things you might be able

to design and build and testing things

out on paper, then test circuits and when

you hit something that seems workable,

you take it out into the real world. So I

got a lot of opportunities as a student to

dream of crazy things and work with a few

friends from start to finish on a project.

I loved that. Then towards the end of

the degree, myself and all of my friends

were being recruited by giant multinational

corporations, which have really

strong recruitment programmes. I was

going to be an aerospace manufacturer,

which made military planes, and I had

other friends ending up with really

huge companies. I moved to Texas for

an internship experience and was at a

facility where they built military planes.

There were more than 30,000 people that

worked there. That kind of romantic thing

of working in small groups, thinking

up projects and seeing them through

from start to finish is just not the truth

of working in a company like that. I was

young and stupid and freaked out, so I

decided to run about as far away as you

could and that was to New Zealand.

So you came to Canterbury University?

I ended up doing an exchange in the

final year of my engineering degree.

I picked New Zealand because it was

far away and no one else was coming

here. So Canterbury University was also

an engineering university. In the US

tertiary system, everyone needs to get

some arts points, even if you’re getting

an engineering degree. When I got to

Canterbury, I didn’t need any more

engineering credits, so I got involved in

various arts and humanities. The theatre

and film studies programme was where I

landed, they offered me a post-graduate

position and I never looked back.

What’s your favourite film?

Probably Fellini’s​ 8½ still, although I

haven’t seen it in a long while.

I bet you get really sick of people

mentioning a certain Hollywood movie

star you share a name with?

Burt Reynolds! Yeah, it’s a shame about

him dying and all, that’s who you mean,

right? Okay, he’s the bane of my existence.

How did Gap Filler come about?

It was started up after the September 4,

2010, earthquake. Coralie was working

at the Arts Centre, running the artistin-residence

programme, and the Arts

Centre made a really quick decision when

the buildings were badly-damaged to halt

all of their public programmes, so she

was made redundant almost immediately.

I was employed at the university at that

time, so we were in a really fortunate

position to say, don’t rush into anything,

take a bit of time and see what happens. I

think it was really Coralie wandering the

city and seeing gap sites where buildings

had been demolished and who knows

how long they would be empty for. They

were all of our social gathering spaces,

the cheap and cheerful restaurants, the

amateur dance studios in the upper

floors, the cultural life of the city had

really been damaged more than the

infrastructure in that September quake.

So all credit to Coralie for hatching the

idea for what became Gap Filler. We lost

our house in the February quake and just

about everything we owned. The scale of

the disaster was so big. We put out the

message on Facebook – that’s the end of

our Gap Filler experiment. But a bunch of

people got in touch saying, no, all of the

cinemas in the central city are closed, so

you need to do an outdoor cinema project,

the libraries are closed, so let’s do some

sort of book project. For the next year

and a half, everything we did was pretty

much someone else’s idea that we helped

facilitate.

What’s your favourite Gap Filler

project so far?

They’re all so different. I really love the

Super Street Arcade project, the giant

arcade game on Tuam St. That’s been there

for two years, it still gets 300 games played

every day. Hopefully we might have one

going in in Melbourne early-mid next

year and I think that would get a lot of

attention. So that’s definitely a favourite.

Every time I cycle past and see the look on

people’s faces discovering it for the first

time it is pretty priceless.

and stupid and freaked out, so I

decided to run about as far away

as you could and that was to New

Zealand.

So you came to Canterbury

University?

I ended up doing an

exchange in the final year of my

engineering degree. I picked New

Zealand because it was far away

So Canterbury University was

also an engineering university.

In the US tertiary system,

everyone needs to get some arts

points, even if you’re getting an

engineering degree. When I got

to Canterbury, I didn’t need any

more engineering credits, so I

got involved in various arts and

humanities. The theatre and film

studies programme was where I

landed, they offered me a postgraduate

position and I never

looked back.

What’s your favourite film?

Probably Fellini’s​ 8½ still,

although I haven’t seen it in a

long while.

I bet you get really sick of

people mentioning a certain

Hollywood movie star you share

a name with?

Burt Reynolds! Yeah, it’s a

shame about him dying and

all, that’s who you mean, right?

Okay, he’s the bane of my

existence.

How did Gap Filler come

about?

It was started up after the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

Coralie was working at the Arts

Centre, running the artist-inresidence

programme, and the

Arts Centre made a really quick

decision when the buildings

were badly-damaged to halt all

of their public programmes, so

she was made redundant almost

immediately. I was employed at

the university at that time, so we

were in a really fortunate position

to say, don’t rush into anything,

take a bit of time and see what

happens. I think it was really

Coralie wandering the city and

seeing gap sites where buildings

had been demolished and who

knows how long they would

be empty for. They were all of

our social gathering spaces, the

cheap and cheerful restaurants,

the amateur dance studios in the

WATCH THIS SPACE

and no one else was coming here.

upper floors, the cultural life of

the city had really been damaged

more than the infrastructure

in that September quake. So all

credit to Coralie for hatching

the idea for what became Gap

Filler. We lost our house in the

February quake and just about

everything we owned. The scale

of the disaster was so big. We put

out the message on Facebook –

that’s the end of our Gap Filler

experiment. But a bunch of

people got in touch saying, no,

all of the cinemas in the central

city are closed, so you need to do

an outdoor cinema project, the

libraries are closed, so let’s do

some sort of book project. For the

next year and a half, everything

we did was pretty much someone

else’s idea that we helped

facilitate.

What’s your favourite Gap

Filler project so far?

They’re all so different. I really

love the Super Street Arcade

project, the giant arcade game

on Tuam St. That’s been there for

two years, it still gets 300 games

played every day. Hopefully

we might have one going in in

Melbourne early-mid next year

and I think that would get a lot

of attention. So that’s definitely a

favourite. Every time I cycle past

and see the look on people’s faces

discovering it for the first time it

is pretty priceless.

start for

goods shed

restoration

• By Julia Evans

THE $250,000 restoration of

the Little River Goods Shed is

expected to start in February.

City council capital delivery

community manager Darren

Moses said work on the heritage

building, dating back to 1886,

would take seven months to

complete.

It includes replacing the foundations,

as well as earthquake

strengthening and painting.

However, before work begins

there would be an archaeological

investigation held at the site.

“Archaeological monitoring

with take place at the beginning

of the site’s redevelopment and

continue until excavation is

complete. A date for this has not

been set,” Mr Moses said.

Mr Moses said a building consent

exemption was applied for

and granted, which had saved on

the cost.

The Little River Railway Station

and Goods Shed is one of

the oldest surviving stations

around the country.

It was part of the Lincoln-

Little River railway.

Showcasing rare marine life

THIRTY MINUTES of

highlights from 75 hours of

undersea footage showcasing

some rarely recorded fish

species is now playing in Akaroa

Museum.

The footage was recorded by

the Department of Conservation

in February last year, using

baited underwater video

cameras while monitoring fish

populations in and around

Banks Peninsula’s two marine

reserves – Akaroa and Pohatu.

It was the first time the baited

underwater video camera

method had been used on the

east coast of the South Island.

Museum director Lynda

Wallace said the museum is

excited to share some of Banks

Peninsula’s marine life with

locals and tourists.

“The footage will play

continuously on a big screen in

a dedicated space, the museum’s

green room, allowing visitors an

immersive and quiet experience,”

she said.

“The history of Akaroa’s

harbour-based industries is

told in the neighbouring gallery

and the underwater footage is

a perfect complement to those

stories.”

DOC marine ranger Tom

MacTavish said the research

team were originally hoping to

develop a better understanding

as to how the two marine

reserves were influencing fin-fish

populations.

“Starting purely as a science

project, we soon saw the diversity

of marine species visiting our

baited cameras and realised

this footage offered a unique

opportunity to peek into Banks

Peninsula’s undersea life and

connect Canterbury people with

this rarely-frequented world

Relief following mail theft arrest

• By Anan Zaki

DIAMOND Harbour residents

are relieved after an arrest over a

string of mail thefts.

A 36-year-old woman was

arrested by police for the thefts

on Monday.

Diamond Harbour chief fire

officer and former policeman

of 34 years,

Bob Palmer

welcomed the

news of the

arrest.

“It’s certainly

taught people

to keep an eye

Franco Lovrich

out for things,

which is always

a good thing,”

Mr Palmer said.

Diamond Harbour

Neighbourhood Support deputy

coordinator Emma Gallagher

said residents should remain

vigilant in spite of the arrest.

“It has put everybody on

edge, it’s a bit of a close knit

community so it makes you feel

a bit vulnerable when you hear

stuff like that going on,” Ms

Gallagher said.

Police said the woman allegedly

stole mail over several months

and used stolen credit cards from

the mail to purchase groceries,

cigarettes, alcohol and petrol.

She was brought into custody

after a search warrant was

carried out in Diamond Harbour

on Monday morning, Lyttelton

Police Sergeant Lovrich said.

More than 70 pieces of stolen

mail were recovered from the

search warrant.

The woman is facing charges

relating to fraud, receiving stolen

property and drugs and will

appear at district court on Friday.

Bay Harbour News reported

earlier this month that Diamond

Harbour was experiencing its

worst crime wave in the last 20

years.

Sergeant Lovrich said most of

the woman’s alleged offending is

believed to have taken place in

Diamond Harbour.

However, he said there was

some mail from Allandale,

Charteris Bay and Governors

Bay.

He said there was a lot of

publicity in the lead up to the

arrest and police received more

reports recently.

It was unclear if the woman had

an accomplice and it is too early

to determine a motive, he said.

“It should be a relief to the

community this time of year . . .

knowing that someone has been

charged with the offending,”

Sergeant Lovrich said.

Police will be returning the

recovered mail to its owners over

the coming weeks.

The arrest was unrelated to the

theft of a $1500 boat trailer and

it was too early to determine a

motive for the alleged mail thefts,

Sergeant Lovrich said.

Trial to

stop drain

flooding

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEW flood prevention

measure may be trialled in

Sumner to stop a drain from

filling up when it rains.

The city council is looking at

placing a temporary groyne at

a Burgess St outlet to prevent

flooding on the street during

heavy rain. The temporary

groyne would aim to artificially

lower sand levels on one side

which, if placed next to an

outlet, may help clear it.

But city council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said

while staff are looking at the

trial on Burgess St, there is no

firm plan at this stage.

If the trial is successful,

the city council may look at

expanding it to the Southshore

estuary.

Questions have been raised

over if the trial was successful in

Sumner, whether it would have

the same outcome at the estuary.

The report said while natural

tidal effects are expected at

Sumner, there is no certainty it

will work at drain outlets in the

estuary.

Thank you for your support over the year!

and a happy new year

A ‘gold mine’

of footwear

for all ages

The Footwear Factory in Garlands

Road Woolston has been a part of the

Christchurch retail scene for more than a

quarter of a century.

Over that time thousands of people have

flocked to the store to find bargains and

good deals in quality footwear, ranging from

children’s shoes, sandals and school shoes

to men’s and women’s fashion and causal

shoes, outdoor and sports shoes, bowls

shoes, slippers, and safety footwear for the

workplace.

Launched in a small shop in Papanui, the

business later operated in Riccarton for 12

years before moving to Garlands Rd 15 years

ago.

Owned by Russ and Jude Day, there you

will find shelves lined with footwear in a

huge variety of styles and colours for men,

women and children – a ‘gold mine’ for shoeseeking

shoppers.

The footwear is brought in from all over

the world, as well as coming from New

Zealand manufacturers, and includes ends of

lines and other well-priced items.

Four main brands are carried – the New

Zealand made McKinlays range of children’s

school shoes, as well as men’s and women’s

styles. The well-known Hi-Tec range of

outdoor footwear and tramping, New

Balance sports shoes and a range of Keens

sandals and outdoor footwear. These known

brands cover all ages.

New styles arrive almost every day, so

there are always more to try on, while Russell

and his second-in-charge Karen are happy to

advise on styles and sizing.

Located on a high-profile site at 47C

Garlands Rd, (next to Flags Tyre’s), the

Footwear Factory is easy to find, and there is

off-street parking available.

They are open seven days a week –

9.30am- 5pm Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm

Saturday and 11am-3pm Sunday. Phone

Godley House

site could

be reclassified

• By Julia Evans

THE SITE of Diamond

Harbour’s Godley House may

need reclassification

The city council’s parks

team is looking at the legal

classification of the site, which

is currently under the recreation

reserve classification.

“The Reserves Act

classification allows for public

recreation activity and, where

they support the main activity,

commercial facilities such as

cafes,” city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge said.

However, it does not allow for

many of the developments the

community wants to see.

The community has been

proposing uses for the site

since 2012. They have included

a permanent cafe building

along with an indoor/outdoor

performance space and shifting

the library to the site from its

current location beneath the

community hall.

City council staff will brief the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board on February 4 about

options for the site.

Staff will also propose how to

engage with the community to

determine if a reclassification is

supported.

Plenty of value in a power nap

JUST UNDER a month in to my

stay-at-home-dad career and I

have a new appreciation for two

things – parenting full-time is way

more tiring than I thought and I

need more hands.

Mostly for Vittoria’s Saturday

swimming lessons.

She’s amazingly confident in the

water and it’s awesome watching

her confidence grow.

Before I became a full-time

parent it was our main daddy/

daughter time, so it’s special for

us. However, as she’s got more

mobile, showering and changing

has become a challenge.

Hence the need for more hands.

If my wife Laura is free, she’ll

tag along to watch the wee mermaid

in action.

Having her there is a big help

as she can dress Vittoria while I

shower and change.

On Saturday morning, I decided

to let Laura sleep in after a

busy work week. But, boy, did I

miss her at change time.

Wee one was already yawning

mid-way through so by the time

we got to the shower she was

grumpy-as and letting everyone

know about it.

The poor lass was just ready for

her bottle and a nap and here’s me

washing her, drying her, dressing

her and then trying to do the

same for myself? What a monster.

To save extending the meltdown,

and bring her back to her

smiling self, I just went home in

my wet togs, wrapped in a towel.

It might not seem like

an embarrassing situation,

but try it out while you’re

Horror of discovering Scott’s body

Fire rages, homes at risk

MORE HAS been revealed about

an Antarctic expedition which

ended in Lyttelton in February

1913.

Canterbury Museum has

acquired two diaries written by

Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s

Norwegian skiing expert,

Tryggve Gran.

One diary, written in Norwegian,

is an account of the

expedition from November 7,

1911 to February 25, 1912.

The other, in Gran’s imperfect

English, covers the period until

the expedition returned to

Lyttelton, in February 1913.

In the second diary, Gran describes

his horror at finding the

frozen bodies of Scott, Edward

Wilson and Henry “Birdie” Bowers

on November 12, 1912, more

than seven months after they

died returning from the South

Pole.

“I will never forget it so long I

live, a horrible nightmare could

not have shown more horror than

this,” Gran wrote.

“The frost had made the skin

yellow and transparent and I’ve

never seen anything worse in my

life. The Owner (the men’s name

for Scott) seems to have struggled

hard in the moment of death,

while the two others seem to have

gone off in a kind of sleep,” he

wrote.

HISTORY: Canterbury Museum has acquired two diaries written by Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Norwegian skiing expert

Tryggve Gran which reveal his horror at finding Scott’s body.

Scott’s group had set out in

October 1911 to become the first

people to reach the South Pole.

They made it to the pole on

January 17, 1912, but discovered

the Norwegian explorer Roald

Amundsen had beaten them

there by 34 days.

On their return journey they

were plagued by severe weather,

which slowed their progress and

caused their food and fuel to run

out.

Gran, who Scott had employed

to teach the other expedition

members to ski, was one of a

group of 11 who set out to find

the party including Scott, after

they failed to return from their

journey to the pole.

The last entry in Scott’s own

journal, which Gran read after

discovering the bodies, is dated

March 29, 1912.

The museum plans to scan and

digitise the English-language

diary early next year, when the

diaries arrive from London

where they were purchased.

The digital version will be

available on the museum’s

website.

Sprinkler torpedoes one-day final

Match

now in

January

• By Gordon Findlater

HEATHCOTE’S one-day

championship final against

Merivale Papanui was rained off

on Sunday.

But no rain fell at Heathcote

Domain.

A mistake with the ground’s

sprinkler system meant the

irrigation came on in the early

hours of Sunday morning, leaving

the ground drenched and

unplayable when the game was

due to begin at 10.30am.

“The council went in and did

some work on Friday. They went

into our toby box and changed

the settings on our sprinklers, so

on Sunday morning they went

on when everyone was tucked up

in bed,” said club captain David

Stack.

When both teams arrived at

Heathcote Domain it quickly

became apparent that no cricket

was going to be played on the

drenched field.

“We tried for a few hours to get

the pitch up to scratch but it was

just way too wet, there were still

SATURDAY SESSION: While the one-day match was called off, Heathcote completed a win in

the two-day competition on Saturday thanks to an 11 wicket haul from Marek Bungard.

puddles out there,” said Stack.

With Heathcote wanting

to play the final at home and

Merivale Papanui wanting to

move the match to their ground,

a decision was finally made to replay

the match at Heathcote at a

date to be confirmed in January.

After being understandably

sombre with the situation the

mood of both sides was lifted

when they headed to the Valley

Inn Tavern for some very premature

post-match drinks at noon.

“We wanted to do a boat race

at the pub to decide the title

but the Papanui Merivale guys

weren’t so keen,” said Heathcote

bowler Ben Cochrane.

The Heathcote team then spent

their afternoon playing backyard

cricket before returning to the

Valley Inn for dinner.

Surprisingly it’s the first time

the sprinklers at Heathcote have

gone off the morning of a major

game. Five years ago a second

grade twenty20 final at Heathcote

was postponed due to an

ill-timed overnight sprinkling.

Sunday’s sprinkler event

capped a weekend where not

a lot of cricket was played for

SPORTS

the premier team. On Saturday

Heathcote bowled East Christchurch

Shirley out for just 30 to

complete an innings and 106

runs victory after Heathcote

scored 245 and bowled East

Shirley out for 106 in the first innings

the previous weekend.

Pace bowler Marek Bungard

added to his 7-22 picked up in

the first innings with 4-10 on

Saturday to complete a 10 wicket

bag and finish with figures of

11-32.

There was also a win in the

two-day championship for

Sumner. They returned to Edgar

MacIntosh Park for the second

day in their match against

Merivale Papanui.

Starting the day with a six run

lead Sumner’s opening bowling

duo of Nawid Mohamady and

Dean Smith picked up three

early wickets to have Merivale

Papanui under pressure early at

42/3. Skipper Dan Vann turned

the game in Sumner’s favour by

taking six wickets for just six

runs.

Merivale lost seven wickets for

just 18 runs to reach a total of 61.

Sumner chased down the

target of 55 but did wobble at

times losing four wickets in the

process.

Brothers top Scarborough Xmas triathlon

THE ANNUAL Christmas

Cracker triathlon and duathlon

took place at in Sumner at the

weekend with 184 athletes of

all ages lining up at the start on

Scarborough Beach.

The sprint triathlon featured

two brothers at the top of the

podium.

The men’s event was won by

Zach Taylor (left) in 57mins

45secs.

He finished just over two

minutes ahead of his younger

brother Will.

The women’s sprint was won by

pro triathlete Gina Crawford in

1hr 8mins 28secs.

She finished ahead of Helen

Wright in second and Marie Hill

in third.

The duathlon title went to Isla

Smith who won both the overall

and women’s race in 1hr 3mins

35secs.

More than three minutes ahead

of male winner Jonny Limmer.

The boys youth triathlon

title was won by Art Aiken

while the girls title went to Lily

Greenwood.

The event also hoisted a

children’s aquathon which was

won by Benjamin Crawford in

the boys and Emily Scales in the

girls race.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has been 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 agree

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

Apartments’

owners

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

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

issue.

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

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln weekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

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

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

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

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.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

“I’d like to think so because the
