District Plan conflict close to end

• By Julia Evans

UNDER FIRE Darrell Latham,

two community board members

and a city councillor appear to be

close to resolving their conflict

with the city council over District

Plan flooding issues.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member,

as well as Coastal Ward city

councillor David East, Coastal-

Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim

Money and deputy chairman

Tim Sintes, have been

facing code of conduct

complaints since September

over an allegation

staff had tampered with the

District Plan.

Mr Sintes said the group would

be making an announcement in

the next couple of weeks.

“We’re going to do a

release as a group when

David East comes back

from holiday,” he said.

Mr Sintes said he

would be pleased to have

the issue wrapped up.

Dr Latham also said

the four would make a statement

Darrell

Latham

soon. “We’ll be in the perfect

position to do that,” he said.

However, yesterday city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards

said, as the process is still under

way, she has no comment. The

root of the conflict was a threeline

clause omitted from the city’s

new District Plan, which came

into effect in December 2017.

The clause would give

leeway to people in specific

coastal areas, deemed at risk of

flooding, to build and extend

homes.

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods approved city

council’s proposal to amend

the Christchurch District Plan

under section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act.

Ava

national

• By Louis Day

SUMNER’S Ava Henderson narrowly

missed out on winning the under-14

girls division at the national surfing

championships in Taranaki.

Ava (right) lost to Australian-based

surfer Amarnie Barber after she

made a priority error.

Ava had already caught three

waves before the other competitors

had caught one which is classed as a

priority error.

The 13-year-old said she felt hard

done by.

IT LOOKS like common sense will

finally prevail over the code of conduct

complaints laid against local community

board member Darrell Latham and others

(page 1).

Latham, as well as Coastal Ward city

councillor David East and Coastal-Burwood Community Board

chairwoman Kim Money and deputy chairman Tim Sintes from

across the estuary, were taken to task by the city council for

their public views on the District Plan flooding issues.

But their criticisms forced a rethink from council chiefs over

what had been left out of the plan, which was causing grief for

many living near the coast.

But the complaints and potential repercussions have remained

unresolved. When East returns from holiday next week there

will be a public statement.

I think they will get off, and deservedly so too.

The Binding

by Bridget Collins

‘I wish I had written it’ Erin Kelly

Imagine you could erase your grief.

Imagine you could forget your pain.

Imagine you could hide a secret…Forever.

Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives

summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a

Bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice

– but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse. He will

learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture

something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there’s something you want to forget,

he can help. If there’s something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be

stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible. In

a vault under his mentor’s workshop, row upon row of books – and memories – are

meticulously stored and recorded. Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing

discovery: one of them has his name on it.

THE BINDING is an unforgettable, magical novel: a boundary-defying love story and a

unique literary event.

The Dog Who Saved the World

by Ross Welford

The astounding new novel from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of

Time Travelling with a Hamster, this is a story for everyone of ten and older who

loves adventure, laughs and tears.

“One of my favourite middle-grade writers” Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The

Girl of Ink and Stars

When eleven-year-old Georgie befriends an eccentric retired scientist, she

becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual-reality 3D version

of the future.

But then a deadly disease threatens the life of every dog in the country and

Georgie’s beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. And that’s only the start of her

troubles.

Soon, Georgie and Mr Mash must embark on a desperate quest: to save every

dog on earth, and maybe even all of humanity …

… without actually leaving the room.

An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all, and a huge idea at its heart,

this is time travel – but not as you know it.

TENSIONS ARE running high in

Lyttelton after dog owners have been

left notes threatening to call dog

control on their pets.

One resident had been left two

handwritten notes on separate occasions.

One of them stating “your f*****g

dog has barked the whole afternoon.

Some people were trying to get a

nap.”

The note which was posted on community

Facebook group, “Lyttelton

– Ain’t No Place I’d Rather Be!” led to

a heated debate

between local residents.

One dog owner was astounded

when he found a printed letter on his

doorstep threatening to contact dog

control if his dogs were not kept on

his own property.

The owner said they were

disappointed that the writer of the

letter could not knock on the door

and have a conversation with him face

to face.

Several other dog owners in the

area have received similar letters and

believe they are coming from the

same person.

Residents from Hawkhurst Rd,

Reserve Tce and College Rd reported

that they had received similar notes.

Worsley’s logbook brings voyage to life

How he navigated the sub-Antarctic sea

A JOURNEY of discovery has

unravelled the science behind

an incredible feat of celestial

navigation by Akaroa-born

Antarctic explorer Frank Worsley.

An international group of

researchers used Worsley’s original

logbook to analyse the voyage of

a lifeboat, the James Caird, across

1500km of rough sub-Antarctic sea

in 1916 after the Endurance was

crushed by pack ice.

Their conclusions have been

published in the Records of the

Canterbury Museum volume 32,

the museum’s annual research

publication.

The logbook is part of the

museum’s significant collection on

Antarctic exploration.

In his home town, Worsley’s

skills and unquenchable thirst

for adventure are celebrated in an

exhibition at Akaroa Museum.

A bust of the navigator also stands

near the main wharf.

Worsley’s amazing Antarctic

voyage was borne out of

desperation.

Endurance was the main ship

of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic

Expedition. It was crushed by ice in

October 1915, stranding the crew

led by Sir Ernest Shackleton.

After camping out until April

display-HN-90x12.9.pdf 2 21/12/2018 1:11:19 p.m.

1916, the expedition’s 28 members

eventually reached Elephant Island

in three lifeboats.

With winter closing in, carpenter

Harry McNish converted the

7m James Caird for open sea travel.

Six men – including Shackleton,

Worsley and McNish – then set

out for South Georgia Island to

seek help from one of the whaling

stations.

The trip took more than two

weeks, with Worsley’s job as the

navigator complicated by the rough

conditions.

He needed to check the boat’s

position using the sun, but it

was seldom seen. He also had

to estimate the longitude of the

starting position.

If this was wrong, the crew could

overshoot South Georgia Island

and all would be lost.

The research paper by Lars

Bergman (Sweden), the late George

Huxtable (United Kingdom),

Bradley Morris (United States)

and Robin Stuart (New Zealand),

provides an introduction to the

principles and methods of celestial

navigation used by Worsley to

successfully complete the voyage.

The paper also answers several

key questions over the source

materials and assumptions that

enabled Worsley’s longitude

estimate.

Remarkably, all the expedition

members were eventually rescued.

Replicating the calculations has

underlined the extraordinary feat

of navigation, Mr Stuart said.

“Worsley had to take the

sights and manually perform the

reduction calculations sitting

on ballast rocks in a small boat

heaving on ocean swells,” he says.

“Yet, for that critical 14-day

period, we did not find a single

error.

“Without Worsley’s superlative

skills as a navigator, Shackleton’s

expedition might be remembered

as a tragedy rather than the epic

tale of Antarctic survival we know

it as today.”

They also used Worsley’s logbook

to examine the possible location of

the Endurance wreck.

That research was prompted by

an international science expedition

to study ice shelves in the Weddell

Sea which also plans to locate and

survey the wreck.

The 45-day Weddell Sea

expedition, which includes

scientists from Canterbury

University, recently left Penguin

Bukta in Antarctica, heading for

the Larsen C Ice Shelf.

Uncle Harry’s cross finds a home

Two more World

War 1 crosses which

celebrated Armistice

Day at the Sumner

Redcliffs RSA have

been claimed. Jess

Gibson reports

WORLD WAR 1 memorials

honour him as Lieutenant

Harry Marshall Wright. To his

family more than 100 years on,

he remains Uncle Harry.

Lieutenant Wright enlisted

as a volunteer in 1912 and

climbed the ranks before the

war broke out in 1914.

He was living in Sumner

when he left for Gallipoli to

fight in the battle of Chunuk

Bair. The last memory his family

has of Lieutenant Wright

was a piggyback ride given to

his younger brother before he

drove away for the last time.

He embarked from Wellington

on April 17, 1915, but

was killed in action in Turkey

several months later on August

7, aged 24.

City council heritage

adviser Gareth Wright said

the death of his great uncle

impacted on the family in a

major way. ​

“I recall my grandfather

FOND MEMORIES:

Lieutenant Harry Marshall

Wright was last seen by his

family in 1914, piggybacking

his younger brother.

would get quite teary when he

talked about his older brother,”

said Gareth.

Lieutenant Wright’s name

appears on a number of memorials

around Christchurch.

“He’s on the memorial at the

community centre in Sumner.

He went to Christchurch Boy’s

High, so his name is on the

memorial there, and because

the family was living in Hororata

at the time he was killed,

he’s on the Hororata memorial

also,” said Gareth.

Gareth said on his trip to

Gallipoli to visit the

New Zealand memorial

at Chunuk Bair,

where his great uncle’s

name was engraved,

was “quite emotional.’’

Gareth said Lieutenant

Wright’s ceremonial

sword hangs on

the wall of his father’s

house. At his own

home in Addington,

his photo and some of his

medals are displayed.

Now, one of 21 crosses held

by the Sumner Redcliffs RSA,

that were displayed in Armistice

Day commemorations to

remember Sumner’s fallen soldiers,

will be added to Gareth’s

memorabilia.

Gareth got in touch with

RSA president Pat Boland

after he saw an article in the

Bay Harbour News that asked

descendants to take their cross.

Gareth said he is happy for

the opportunity to collect the

cross. “I’m very keen on my

family history,” he said.

He said he plans to either

keep the cross or give it to his

father, who can hang next to

his brothers sword.

A significant part of the

Wright’s family history is that,

like Gareth now, Lieutenant

Wright was a part

of the city council.

Before he was

enlisted, Lieutenant

Wright was a clerk

in the treasury department

of the city

council. His father,

Sidney Wright,

was a clerk at the

Selwyn District

Council.

“It’s a small world,” said

Gareth.

Mrs Boland is meeting

with the RSA committee

this week to arrange a ceremony

for the collection of

the crosses.

“We’re very delighted and

honoured to be able to do

that . . . we’re sure that the

crosses will find a good home

with their families,” said Mrs

Boland.

VULNERABLE: Pile-driving at Lyttelton Port Company’s planned new cruise ship

berth can cause temporary or even permanent hearing loss for the endangered

Hector’s dolphins.

Port not doing enough

to monitor dolphins

– marine biologist

• By Louis Day

A MARINE biologist has

criticised the Lyttelton

Port Company’s use of a

single observer to monitor

Hector’s dolphins in the

harbour.

LPC is currently piling

for its new cruise ship

berth. It has promised

to cease all pile driving

activity when Hector’s

dolphins come within

450m of the berth.

However, Otago

University marine biology

professor Liz Slooten said

the majority of dolphins

are likely to be undetected

by a single observer.

“With one person

looking, you are only going

to see a small fraction of

the dolphins that

are out there.”

Prof Slooten

said this could

cause a lot of

dolphins to be

vulnerable to

hearing loss.

“They use

sound for

everything –

that’s why people

often say a deaf dolphin is a

dead dolphin.”

Prof Slooten said the

size of the safety zone also

makes it difficult to detect

the dolphins.

“The probability of

detecting Hector’s dolphins

drops quite significantly

with distance,” she said.

“At about 100m you only

see about 60 per cent (of

Liz Slooten

the dolphins), and

about 200m you

only see a third,

and at 400m you

would only see

about 14 per cent

of the dolphins.”

LPC strategic

engagement

manager Phil

De Joux said he

is confident its

current plan will mitigate

the impacts of piling on the

dolphins.

“We have worked at

putting together this plan

with a group of experts

with years of experience

from multiple disciplines.”

Mr De Joux said 287

dolphins have been spotted

since it started piling at the

end of last year.

Boy racer barrier at marina

• By Louis Day

BARRIER ARMS have

been installed at the

entrance to the Te Ana

Marina car park (right)

to prevent boy racers

disturbing residents at

night.

Residents have complained

about boy racers

revving engines late at

night and early in the

morning, prompting the

Lyttelton Port Company,

which owns the marina, to

install the barrier arms.

They will remain open

during the day so vehicles

can access the car park and

the Woolstore area, but will

be closed from 9.30pm to

5.30am.

Marina berth-holders

will be able to access the

car park 24 hours a day

using their swipe key, and

the exit arm is automated

so vehicles can exit at any

time.

LPC strategic

engagement manager

Phil De Joux is confident

the barrier arms will

bring an end to boy

racers disturbing nearby

residents.

“We had previously

employed security to keep

them [boy racers] out, but

now we have moved to this

more permanent solution.”

Twins keep parents on their toes

Two years ago

Radhika Naidu gave

birth to identical

twin boys, Manu and

Dominic Wells. Emily

O’Connell catches up

with the family

“CHEERFUL, PLAYFUL and

extremely naughty.”

That’s how Radhika Naidu describes

her twin boys who were

born nine weeks premature on

January 1, 2017.

Their early arrival meant the

twins spent the first 57 days of

their life in a neonatal intensive

care unit in Christchurch

Women’s Hospital. It also meant

the pair were known as twin

one and two for six weeks, while

Ms Naidu and husband Victor

Wells decided on names which

included both their cultures.

Although the two-year-olds

are identical, Ms Naidu says they

look “so different” and their personalities

are not “alike at all.”

She said Manu, who is the

bigger twin, was the first to walk

and develop skills and Dominic

is more cheerful and observant

and “takes on adverse situations

more readily.”

Along with the twins, Ms

Naidu and Mr Wells are kept

busy with two other children,

Mia, 7, and Ariki who is threeand-half-years

old.

“I just don’t remember having to

monitor them [Mia and Ariki] all

the time like this. These guys [the

twins] egg each other on,” she said.

Ms Naidu says the biggest difference

between the twins and

her older two children is their

comprised immunity caused by a

premature birth.

“Especially Dominic, so when

he was born . . . they realised

his umbilical cord was straggly

and unhealthy looking and it

had knots in it. So it had been

comprising his blood flow from

the beginning,” she said.

Dominic has an eye condition

called nystagmus, which Ms

Naidu has been told is common

with premature babies, and he

has immature lung development

meaning he gets sick easily.

“They both have asthma and

eczema and they use preventers.

They seem to be a little better

now. We’re hoping they keep

improving,” she said.

January 2017 was a busy

month for Ms Naidu and Mr

Wells, with the birth of their

twins which “forever redefined”

New Year’s Day for them, moving

house and their first child,

Mia, starting primary school. Ms

Naidu said her husband was the

“rock” during this time.

Manu and Dominic aren’t the

only ones in the family born on

a significant day, their grandmother

Protima Naidu was born

on Christmas Day.

Ms Naidu says discovering

Mulitples Canterbury, which

supports people with twins,

triplets or more, has been “encouraging”

and has helped her

feel less isolated.

She said the organisation

provides new parents with

information such as dietary

ADverTOrIAL

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.

HEALTHY TREAT: Stay-at-home dad Matt Salmons’ daughter, Vittoria, turned

one on Saturday.

Vittoria’s first

birthday party

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.

Learn more at www.lincoln.ac.nz or call 0800 10 60 10.

PHEW, WE’RE out of the

holiday season.

We’ve had Christmas,

New Year and last Sunday

we had the Feast of the

Epiphany, when Vittoria got

a sock full of treats from the

Christmas Witch/La Befana

– it’s an Italian thing.

We didn’t manage to

burn the traditional effigy

but we did get in a not-sotraditional

feast of fish ’n’

chips.

Now we’re back into the

swing of first birthdays.

It started on Saturday

with the most important

one (for me and Laura

anyway) – Vittoria’s.

No one tells you how

many first birthday parties

you end up going to after

you have a kid, but it makes

a whole heap of sense when

you actually think about it.

It’s seemed like we’ve had

one at least every second

weekend over the last

couple of months.

It’s great, they’re not quite

completely for the kids yet,

so they still have plenty to

keep the adults entertained

too.

They’re the perfect blend

of your favourite finger

foods from childhood,

children’s party games

and the opportunity for

extremely responsible

drinking.

I kind of feel like we

cheated with Vittoria’s since

we hosted it at an early

learning centre rather than

at home, but we certainly

did not skimp on the treats

or birthday atmosphere.

I can’t believe she’s now a

year old.

A little over a year ago we

prepared for her arrival via

caesarean at 10.31am on

Friday, January 12.

I’m not ashamed to

admit that in spite of my

unflappably stiff-upperlipped

support of Laura

through the operation, I

was a blubbering wreck as

soon as I saw Vittoria.

Just under a week later

we brought her home. She

was such a quiet wee thing,

mostly sleeping.

VITTORIA

& Matt

It was terrifying and

exciting. I feel like I’m

getting pretty good at

parenting, which is good

because she is no longer

quiet or prone to sleeping.

In fact over the last few

days she decided she didn’t

need three naps a day

anymore, as she is a big

girl now. She also worked

on polishing her tantrum

abilities and showed signs

of getting picky with food

(shudder).

But she’s still just as keen

on cuddles as she’s ever

been, is laughing a lot, and

is always curious about the

world around her.

I hope those things don’t

change for a long time to

come.

A POPULAR ute has

caught the attention of

thieves.

Toyota Hiluxes are being

stolen in large numbers

across Canterbury.

In Christchurch last

year, 133 were stolen and

more were taken in the

Selwyn district and North

Canterbury.

Acting Canterbury

district commander

Inspector Peter Cooper

said due to its popularity,

the ute is being “routinely

targeted” by thieves.

Older models may also

be stolen for parts, he said.

In 2017 and 2018, the

Hilux was the second best

selling new vehicle in New

Zealand. The top

selling vehicle was

the Ford Ranger

ute.

The theft of

Hiluxes has also

been an ongoing

problem in

Selwyn and North

Canterbury, police

said.

Rangiora

Sergeant Colin Stewart

said there was a

“significant increase” in

Hilux thefts in the area

about two months ago.

where it appears they

he said.

But the situation

has improved since

a police operation in

Belfast two months

ago, Sergeant

Stewart said.

Rolleston Senior

Sergeant Pete Stills

said the theft of Hiluxes

has been a “constant

issue” in Selwyn. Police

recommend people

secure their vehicles in a

garage or fit them with an

immobiliser or alarm.

SAFE: Make sure you check all your boating equipment, including life jackets,

regularly for any sign of wear.

‘If in doubt, throw it out’

• By Gary Manch

I DON’T know whether

it’s an age thing, but the

summer holiday break

seems to come around a

lot quicker than when I

was 16.

One thing I am certain of

is that our summers appear

to be arriving later and

later, and climate change is

certainly having an effect.

With greenhouse

warming, our ozone layer

is getting thinner.

How does this affect us as

boaties?

To put it simply, it’s like

wearing sunscreen to stop

getting burnt.

Over time life jackets

and other safety equipment

exposed to the sun

on a regular basis can

deteriorate and break down

and the equipment will not

function to the high safety

levels required.

So the million dollar

question is, how to prevent

this happening?

It’s simple really. Firstly,

do what none of us ever

do – okay some may,

but how many of you

have signed the petition,

which will be put to

Kiwibank chief executive

Steve Jurkovich and chairwoman

of the board Susan

Macken before the closure

on January 30.

It was launched by Port

better of you – you should

follow the manufacturer’s

instructions in relation to

how to look after your gear.

Secondly, check your

equipment regularly

for any sign of wear, or

breakdown of material, and

use the old saying – ‘if in

doubt, throw it out’.

When you compare the

cost of your boat, jetski, or

paddleboard to the cost of

the safety equipment you

require, it’s minimal.

Many years ago, Bell

Helmets, which are known

for quality helmets in the

motorcycling world, had

a saying and this can be

translated to many other

areas where safety is

paramount.

It went: “If you have a $10

head, wear a $10 helmet.”

New Zealand Post, which

is a joint operation with

Kiwibank, will also close on

January 30.

But NZ Post is still

planning to provide postal

and bill payment

services in Eastgate

through an agency.

Head of retail

on shifting postal

QE II tops list for ‘code browns’

• By Sophie Cornish

CITY COUNCIL staff were kept

busy last year with 167 ‘code

browns’ closing pools across

Christchurch.

In spite of only opening on

May 31, Taiora: QE II Recreation

and Sport Centre has taken out

the ‘most poops’ title with 71

code browns and 33 vomiting

incidents. However, in defence

of the new facility, it has seven

pools.

The second biggest complex,

which has five pools, is Jellie Park

Recreation and Sport Centre.

But its outdoor pool also closes

during winter.

QE II has been popular since

opening and on 30 occasions

a one-in, one-out policy has

been applied to customers when

maximum capacity has been

reached.

City council head of recreation

sports and events Nigel Cox

believes QE II has the most

closures due to a significant

number of younger swimmers

who enjoy the multiple play

spaces.

Meanwhile, Graham Condon

Recreation and Sport Centre,

with four pools, had 47 code

browns and 20 vomiting

The city council provides

tips on its website on how to

ensure its pools stay open,

offering pointers for parents and

caregivers who should take extra

care when accompanying a child

to the pool.

The tips include allowing

food to settle before swimming,

making sure your child has been

to the toilet before entering the

pool and reminding your child

that it is okay to get out of the

pool to go to the toilet during

swimming lessons, just let their

tutor know.

If the water in the pool does

not meet the required quality

standard, the pool has to be

cleared of swimmers then treated

and cleaned.

Cleaning times vary for

different pools and facilities. It

can range from 40min for a spa

pool to 12hr 40min for a lane

pool.

alternative to the mainstream cars

Not only did I put the Scout to

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

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

$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
