Further tension over wharf structures

• By Louis Day

TENSION BETWEEN fishermen and

the city council continues over nonconsented

structures on Akaroa wharf.

In July last year, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board gave Black

Cat Cruises three months to remove

all non-consented structures, such as

disability access ramps, seating, signage

and canopies.

But the two ramps still remain

nearly three months after they were

meant to be removed.

Akaroa Fishermen’s Association head

John Wright said the disability ramps

were not even being used to cater for

the disabled.

“If there was a disabled person trying

to enter the building they couldn’t. The

ramps that they say are for the disabled

are not being used for that reason, they

are being used for drying and airing

the boots and wetsuits.”

The use of the ramps as an area to dry

wetsuits and other clothing not only

impedes the entrance of the building but

is also in breach of orders made by the

Banks Peninsula Community Board in

June to keep the ramp clear at all times.

“It looks like we have got our knives

into Black Cat, that’s not the case at all,

we just want the rules the council put

in place enforced.”

Black Cat Cruises chief executive

Paul Milligan understood that the

boots blocking the disability ramp were

not a good look.

from the editor’s desk

IT’S GREAT to see young people

succeeding and on page 4 today we have a

good example.

Thirteen-year-old Zoe Elmey is making

every post a winner with her burgeoning

gift card and baby product business, and

even has Jacinda Ardern as a fan. The prime minister has sent

her a message of thanks.

Zoe has always had a penchant for arts and crafts and like

others with sporting talent, for example, she has excelled at a

young age. The world is Zoe’s oyster when it comes to business, I

suspect. This venture will no doubt be a stepping stone to bigger

and bolder plans.

Not such good news for the delay in getting Tug Lyttelton

back on the water for tourists (page 3).

The port needs it.

Mr Bruce said once the

it could take up to three weeks

to prepare the boat for passenger

cruises.

“If we get the sign-off at the

end of this week, we will have to

reheat the boiler. That’s going to

Teen’s gift card business booming

Baby gear

impresses

Jacinda Ardern

• By Louis Day

SUMNER 13-YEAR-OLD Zoe

Elmey has sold more than 4500

gift cards featuring her own

designs, with the prime minister

being her most notable recipient.

Zoe sent some of her cards,

and bibs and teething rings

from her baby product range to

Jacinda Ardern as part of the

prime minister’s Christmas card

competition.

The former Sumner School

student was astounded when she

received a letter from Ms Ardern

thanking her for the gifts.

“It was amazing I didn’t expect

anything back, I thought it was

just going to add to the pile of

things she probably receives.”

Zoe started the business when

she was 10, since then her cards

have been sold in 22 stores across

the country as well as a shop in

Eastbourne, south-east England.

She has 26 different designs

which feature on various pieces

of artwork.

Fifty per cent of the proceeds

of a turtle card are donated

to Greenpeace to help them

continue to protect turtles from

plastic pollution.

She has also recently started

her own baby range which was

inspired by the arrival of her

newborn sister Hollyanne.

“I made so much stuff for her,

I was knitting and sewing and I

just loved the bibs and the teething

rings so I just started selling

them.”

Zoe sews all of the baby bibs,

burp cloths and material covering

her teething rings by hand,

which can take up to 20min.

“I’m probably different to the

usual teenager hanging out at the

beach and stuff. Basically, any

free time I have after school I’m

sewing and working on the baby

range.”

Zoe’s mother Becky Nisbet

CREATIVE: Zoe spends a lot of her free time sewing the items

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

said she had shown potential

from a very young age.

“When Zoe was at pre-school

she would spend all day doing

arts and crafts and making

presents for me when other kids

were in the playground and

sandpit.”

Ms Nisbet said she started

the business for her daughter to

encourage her to pursue a career

in art.

“My older sister was good at

art and my parents pushed her

into graphic design and away

from art, I wanted Zoe to do

something she loved and not just

something that makes money.”

Zoe and her mother were

forced to move house to accommodate

her booming business.

“We had boxes of her cards

all through the living room and

especially with having a baby

I got a bit fed up with that, so I

wanted a house that had an office

for her.”

Zoe’s business boomed after

her mother would show her

cards to gift shops while they

were on holiday.

“I just can’t help myself, we go

into the shop and just show them

the cards and they either show

an interest or not, they often do

though.”

Akaroa Dolphins Shop’s

Natalie Stuart said Zoe’s cards

were extremely popular with

customers.

“People come in and are

astounded that the cards were

made by someone so young, they

sell like hot cakes.”

However, Jason Wright, a

said he didn’t think the craypots

were being stolen.

He believes vessels are simply

running them over. It was also

normal for craypots to get lost at

least six pots a year.

“It’s just the way it is,

THE MONCKS Bay tram

shelter will remain closed due to

earthquake risk.

The 85-year-old building on

Main Rd has been closed

since Christmas Eve.

A recent assessment

indicated the condition of

the roof has compromised

the structural integrity

of the shelter, leaving it

“The Moncks Bay tram

Darrell shelter is an iconic building,

see that it is fenced off. However,

EXCITED:

Vittoria

opening a

mini-mountain

of presents.

Big day out for

first birthday

OUR WEE lady is a year

old. Far out.

Her first birthday was

awesome and a big day for

all involved, starting with

her baptism at St Mary’s

Pro Cathedral.

Being unbaptised myself

and never having been to

one, I was really worried

about what I would have

to do.

It was actually a really

nice and easy experience.

The priest was really good

and it was special to be able

to share the experience

with another family also

baptising their one-yearold

daughter.

In spite of being super

wriggly these days, Vittoria

managed to behave herself

right through. She didn’t

even squirm when the

priest applied the holy

water to her forehead and

only talked over him a

handful of times.

My sister-in-law Sarah

and best mate Codey had

both kindly made the trip

from Australia for her

baptism and birthday.

And to take on the

responsibility as Vittoria’s

godparents, something

that’s quite a big deal for

Italians.

For Vittoria’s party itself,

Laura was lucky enough

to win us the awesome

prize of having it hosted at

Baby Sensory. With games,

songs, toys, bubbles and

even a baby-sized bouncy

castle.

The prize even included

a custom cake. I’m not sure

we’ll be able to top it next

year.

Including Vittoria, there

were 13 babies around the

age of one. It was like the

cutest swarm of locusts

you’ve ever seen, watching

them mob the most

popular toys.

In the words of her

new godmother, Vittoria

rocked her party. She was

everywhere and non-stop.

I loved watching her

have so much fun with

her friends and there was

plenty of full body smiles

coming from Laura as she

watched, so I knew we felt

the same.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Vittoria’s day finished

by opening the minimountain

of presents and

getting way too excited

before bed with her brand

new paddling pool/ball pit.

A very lucky girl indeed.

Sunday was, by necessity,

very relaxed. Bubs even

managed an early night

and a full night’s sleep. A

real birthday treat for her

parents.

With her birthday

behind us, it’ll be smooth

sailing for a few months, so

to speak.

Soon we’ll be back into

the routine, with all the

play groups, swimming

lessons and such starting

up from this week on.

3000 sign Dark Star petition

• By Louis Day

THE PETITION to extend

the statutory building

approval of the Godley

House site, which is

currently owned by Dark

Star Ale House and Cafe,

has received more than

3000 signatures.

The petition on

change.org calls for the

sites statutory building

approval to be extended

“until such time as new

services are built on the

Godley House site” to

attract a new business to

take over from the Dark

Star when it closes in

March.

Owners of the Dark Star

Ale House and Cafe will

present the petition to the

Banks Peninsula Community

on February 4.

Co-owner Martin Richardson

said the petition

was more about a business

filling the gap left behind

by the Dark Star rather

than him and his wife being

able to sell the site.

Mr Richardson said

they had tried to sell the

business, but the limited

time remaining on the site’s

building approval had put

potential buyers off.

“If the petition isn’t accepted,

it would mean there

isn’t that venue anymore,

which means there is a

massive hole in the community.”

Andrew Norris

Making a career out of fighting fires

Governors Bay Volunteer

Fire Brigade chief Andrew

Norris marked 30 years

working at the Fire and

Emergency New Zealand

communications centre.

Louis Day caught up with

the veteran shift manager

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Lyttelton

and grew up there. I went to

Lyttelton West School and then

Hagley High School. I moved to

Governors Bay about 22 years

ago.

Tell me about your family.

I come from a large Lyttelton

family. I am one of seven kids,

my father worked on the wharf

for the Lyttelton Harbour Board

as a crane driver. My mother

died when I was a young kid. I

am married to Rita, who is the

school secretary at Lyttelton

Primary School, and I have got

a daughter Anita who works at

Ferrymead Pharmacy. I also have

a son Alex.

Alex works in communications

alongside me, he is on a different

watch but he works in there.

Both Anita and Alex are also

volunteer firefighters like myself

in Governors Bay. Anita has been

a volunteer for six years and Alex

has been one for three years.

The man you call when there’s a fire

•From page 9

What do you love about your

job?

I suppose even though we are

doing the same thing all the time,

there is a lot of variety and it’s

almost like a game of chess where

you are allocating fire crews to

jobs and moving others around

to maintain coverage.

How has the service changed

over the last 30 years?

Technology. When I started it

was a pen and paper operation

and we controlled just the

mid-Canterbury area. Over

the years, other control rooms

have closed down and we now

cover the whole South Island.

We are one of three control

rooms in New Zealand and we

are fully computerised, with

vehicle tracking systems and a

massive street database and we

are now co-located with police

and ambulance in the new

Emergency Services Precinct.

Was it hard adapting to the

new technology?

Not really because it has been

quite gradual and I had the

benefit of being a bit younger

then, but it was certainly hard for

the older people who were there

at the time. But now it is just

second nature for people.

How many years do you plan

READY TO GO: Members of the Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour, Lyttelton, Waikuku, West Melton and Bottle Lake fire brigades

during an annual training day at the Governors Bay Fire Station.

to stay with Fire and Emergency

New Zealand?

I plan to stay in Fire and

Emergency for another 10 years

until retirement.

What do you plan to do in

your retirement?

If I live that long Rita and I

enjoy travelling in our caravan

and just hovering around

at home and I enjoy being a

volunteer firefighter as well. After

retirement, I plan to continue to

volunteer as a firefighter. At the

moment, I’m the volunteer chief.

I will probably step down from

that role in the near future, but

I plan to just stick around in a

support capacity because I enjoy

hovering around at the station,

doing maintenance and testing

equipment.

What would you like to see in

the brigade’s future?

I suppose it is on the right

track in the way that it is aiming

for full integration of rural and

urban fire services. I would like

to see that completed with full

equality. Everything about the

service is really good, but we still

have a way to go to complete that

process. Also, I would like to see

a better working relationship

with Civil Defence.

Would you say your

colleagues are like a second

family?

Certainly in the volunteer

side of things we are. At the

communications centre, we have

a good working relationship and

we know a lot about each other’s

families. But due to the fact we

work 12-hour shifts together,

with the same people, the time

apart is also very important to

maintain healthy relationships.

You imagine sitting with a

colleague, a couple metres

from them 12 hours a day, 48

hours on the trot, and then

spending time outside of work

as well, sometimes it can be a bit

overwhelming. So that time apart

is definitely important.

Your Local Views

Genevieve

Robinson

of Maui and

Hector’s

Dolphin

Defenders

shares her

concerns over the impact

piling for the new cruise

berth in Lyttelton Harbour

is having on Hector’s

dolphins

EIGHT YEARS ago, when I

moved north to Christchurch,

I had little knowledge of the

Hector’s dolphin, or of its

endangered status.

When I received word that

the local dolphin population

was at risk from the impacts associated

with pile-driving noise

at Lyttelton Port, I jumped in

my car to hear the metallic,

echoed drone.

Marine scientists often

compared the underwater noise

levels of pile-driving activities

for marine mammals, to that of

a gunshot at close range.

Often deafening, and often

frightening.

It’s a known fact, that during

past piling operations at the

port of Lyttelton, scientists

noticed behavioural changes in

the local dolphin population.

Individuals fled, were displaced

into areas of greater risk,

and barely echolocated to other

pod members.

Which brings me to my main

areas of concern for this new

cruise berth project.

Since LPC’s marine-based

piling commenced in November

2018, 287 Hector’s dolphins

have been spotted within

its 450m observation zone.

Now, that might seem like an

abundance of healthy little dolphins,

but what scientists and

researchers see, is a substantial

increase in risk.

Lyttelton Port Company’s

new Cruise berth design includes

a combination of both

marine, and land-based piling –

with 400 piles driven, in total.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Dolphin concern continues

As part of its Marine Mammal

Management Plan, LPC

has included trained observers

to spot dolphins before, during,

and after piling activities.

But where this plan falls

short, is just how many trained

observers there are on-site –

one.

Although spotting dolphins

from a distance, is pretty

much “hit and miss,” the more

observers operating in one

shift, or even in rotation, means

less of risk to Hector’s of either

physical, or behavioural

Lyttelton is one of only five

industrial harbours in the

world to be graced with the daily

presence of dolphins, and is

the only port to host the world’s

smallest dolphin species.

LPC’s unsophisticated mitigation

and monitoring planning

leaves it wide open to the

scrutiny it often deserves.

Might I finish with one final

request? Where on earth is the

test-pile sound data requested

more than four months ago,

and the C-pod analysis?

Lyttelton Port

Company chief

executive Peter

Davie responds to

Genevieve

Robinson’s

concerns and

the new cruise berth is

progressing

Fire rages, homes at risk

LPC HAS worked with some of

New Zealand’s leading experts

from Cawthron Institute, Blue

Planet Marine and DOC to develop

ways to minimise the potential

impacts and manage the risks.

This is set out in our 25-page Marine

Mammal Management Plan,

which has been developed after

months of meticulous research by

some of New Zealand’s leading marine

mammal experts and advice

from DOC.

One of the key mitigation measures

is the 450m exclusion zone

around the piling where if a dolphin

is seen then piling cannot start,

or must stop, until they leave the

area. Observers, who are from Blue

Planet Marine, an independent organisation

who specialise in marine

mammal observation, are present

before, during and after operations

at the site, and have attended and

passed a DOC-approved marine

mammal observer course.

This course is designed for the

seismic industry where a single observer

is expected to spot mammals

within a 1500m exclusion zone

from the deck of a ship in a rolling

sea. Our observer has a much

easier job, only having to observe

a 450m zone from fixed, elevated

platforms on the construction site.

The number of observers is dependent

on the visibility conditions.

In normal visibility conditions,

there is one observer. However, if

conditions deteriorate, an additional

observer will be added in a second

separate observation location. If

conditions are defined as poor

visibility and it is so bad that it is difficult

to see in the zone, then piling

ceases until conditions improve.

Between December 7 and 19,

observers spotted 287 Hector’s

dolphins, 219 of which were inside

the 450m zone. None of these were

spotted while piling was under way

suggesting experts assessments

were correct, and during piling

dolphins avoid the immediate area,

returning once piling ceases.

We also paused starting piling 20

times, after dolphins were spotted

in the zone during pre-piling

processes. Operations only commenced

once the dolphins had

moved on.

Our hydrophones are also in

place and collecting data. LPC

has developed excellent working

partnerships with some of the

leading marine mammal and

acoustic experts. We will work

with those experts to publish

the results and findings of our

extensive monitoring programme

and research. Following this, the

underlying data will be available for

public use.

UNSETTLED: Governors Bay residents guide llamas Echo and Lily back to

their farm on Zephyr Tce.

Llama drama in Governors Bay

• By Louis Day

IT TOOK seven people to

contain two llamas which

escaped from their farm in

Governors Bay.

Governors Bay resident

of 22 years Gail Weaver

said she was quite surprised

to see two llamas

running around at the bottom

of her driveway.

Mrs Weaver said it only

took twenty minutes to

reunite the two stray llamas

with their herd.

“They were very good, I

don’t think any of us had

to touch the llamas at all,

we just encouraged them

in the right direction,

they were very happy and

docile. Somebody was also

in a car and parked across

the road to stop them from

going downhill.”

The two llamas, Echo

and Lily are now safe and

sound with the rest of their

herd.

“When we got them up

to the field, a lot of other

llamas came up to them

and greeted them.”

Owner of the llamas

Simon Gurnsey said Echo

and Lily were apparently

unsettled after shearing

from the previous week.

Mr Gurnsey did not wish

to speak further with the

Bay Harbour News.

Mrs Weaver said the way

residents pulled together to

help had a lot to say about

the Governors Bay Community.

“Governors Bay is a

good community full of

good people that will help

others.”

School construction on track

• By Louis Day

REDCLIFFS SCHOOL is

on track to be completed

by 2020.

The relocation of the

sewer main and removal

of remaining vegetation

was completed over the

Christmas holidays.

The foundations of the

new school are now set

to be put in place so construction

can begin.

Redcliffs School principal

Rose McInerney said

she was delighted to see

the new school start to

come together.

“The school is the heart

of the community and it

always has been, so it’s

kind of like bringing the

heart back.”

The school has been

based in van Asch Deaf

Education Centre in Sumner

for the last seven and a

half years after the school

was damaged in the 2011

earthquakes.

The relocation of the

school to the old Redcliffs

Park site has prompted a

reshuffle of the local traffic

system.

Mrs McInerney acknowledged

the impact

that this would have on

Redcliffs residents.

“I’m very aware that

change is hard for a community,

but for us, as a

school, we are so excited

because in one years time

we are going to be back in

our own community.”

Woolstore close to being filled

• By Louis Day

THE EMPTY Woolstore

building on Lyttelton’s

Te Ana Marina is close to

being filled.

The Woolstore has been

empty since it opened in

October, with residents

growing frustrated that it

has not been filled with a

restaurant, cafe or shop of

some sort.

Lyttelton Port

Company marketing manager

Simon Munt, however,

said the building was close

to being filled.

“We are currently in final

discussions with a wellrespected

tenant with a

track-record of creative developments

who will bring

a range of exciting retail

and hospitality offerings to

the remaining space in the

Woolstore building.”

Mr Munt said they

expected to make an announcement

in the near

future.

Lyttelton Community

Association chairman Ken

Maynard was disappointed

it was taking so long to fill

the building.

“It is a good pedestrian

access to the waterfront,

about the only one we have

got in fact, and a lot of people

get down there and you

have got this great big empty

old warehouse. What we

do have is a caravan selling

sausage rolls and as good

as those sausage rolls are,

we could probably do with

something a bit more than

that.”

Space with Grace

7c Paisley Street, Sumner

Price: $839,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | 1 off-street park | Listing Number: SM0139

This sun-drenched and spacious

character home combines classic styling

with modern conveniences, while

benefiting from being low maintenance

and permanent material.

Quietly tucked away on a peaceful rear

section and surrounded by greenery you

will find the situation extremely private

and restful.

The kitchen has been upgraded with new

engineered stone benchtops and is central

to the open plan living area. High ceilings

create an enhanced sense of space which is

heated by a gas fire. French doors provide

a seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto a

sheltered verandah and a fully fenced easy

care garden.

You will enjoy 4 larger than normal

bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The

downstairs bedroom has the option to be

used as an office, guest or second living

room. A double internal access garage

provides security and there is off street

parking.

Buyers will immediately recognise the

inherent value in the quality of both the

home itself and the desirable location

being walking distance to schools, park,

the beach and Sumner shopping village.

An executive home like this is hard to

find but easy to own. With our owners

having committed to a move onto the hill,

the time to act is now!

Open Home: Sunday 1:00pm - 1:45pm.
