Redcliffs School pupils catch up with Boult

Trent Boult may have been at the centre of controversy on Saturday during the Black Caps second one-day match

against Bangladesh – but he was a hero for many Redcliffs School pupils. Boult, who took 1-49 in New Zealand’s

eight-wicket win, spent time after training on Friday at Hagley Oval with some of the pupils. The next day he was

fined 15 per cent of his match fee for swearing during the match.

Residents

turn out

over

liquor

store bid

• By Louis Day

REDCLIFFS residents are

questioning how the proposed

liquor store on Main Rd will

achieve the fine wine and spirits

experience promised by the

owner.

More than 50 residents

attended a public meeting about

the liquor store application at St

Andrews Anglican Church on

Thursday.

Store owner Jugraj Singh

assured residents the off-licence

would sell fine wine and spirits

and offer a range of delicatessen

goods.

However, residents questioned

how Mr Singh would achieve

what he has promised with a store

that is only 62 sq m.

Mr Singh was unsure exactly

how much space he would have in

the store for the delicatessen but

said it was something he wanted

to try.

St Andrews reverend Thomas

Brauer said he supported what Mr

Singh was pitching but did not see

how it related to the application.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

A GOOD read today on Joanna Norris, the

chief executive of ChristchurchNZ (pages

6-8).

Norris, who led The Press and other

Fairfax media assets in the South Island,

has one of the most important roles in

the city.

ChristchurchNZ is a pivotal organisation to the region’s

future. Tourism, economic development and events are its key

areas. Without those pillars, the city and wider region will

struggle to grow.

Getting those wheels spinning won’t be easy and it will take

time. Competition from other regions for events, tourism and

economic growth is fierce.

Having the right people around her to build relationships both

here in New Zealand and overseas, and thinking outside of the

square, will be imperative.

I’m sure she will do well.

Swell keeps lifeboat busy

• By Louis Day

IT HAS been a busy month for

the Sumner Lifeboat Institution

with a call out every few days.

Three people had to be rescued

over the last week due to a 2m

swell on Scarborough beach.

A female swimmer was taken

out to sea by the breakwater rip,

a surfer also lost a board and

was taken

away from the

shore, which

was followed

later that day

by another

swimmer who

had to be rescued

from the

Blair Quane

same rip.

The Sumner

Lifeboat was

also called out last Wednesday

to help a kiteboarder who was

struggling in the estuary

mouth.

Luckily the kiteboarder

managed to make it back to

South Shore before the Sumner

Lifeboat arrived on the scene.

The kiteboarder was assessed

by Sumner surf lifesavers before

being given the all clear.

Sumner Lifeboat coxswain

Blair Quane said it was important

for people to be wary of the

different rips on the beach when

tree trouble?

KEEPING BUSY: The

Sumner Lifeboat has

averaged a call-out every

few days this month.

the swell is high.

“With a 2m swell coming

into the bay, water has got to go

somewhere so it flows straight

out of the rips, generally the

main rip that it works through is

the breakwater rip which is right

in the corner,” he said.

Design soon

for tram shelter

• By Louis Day

PROGRESS IS being made with

the Moncks Bay tram shelter.

A design for repair will be completed

for the tram shelter by mid

next month.

The city council has been working

on the design for repair for the

last three weeks.

The 85-year-old building on

Main Rd has been closed since

Christmas Eve after an assessment

of the shelter indicated the condition

of the roof had compromised

the structural integrity of the shelter,

leaving it vulnerable to quakes.

City council transport and operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said an exact date for when repairs

would start was currently unclear.

“Once the design has been accepted

a scope of works will be

outlined to give estimated timelines

and costs. Timelines will be

dependent on funding availability,”

he said.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said

she was glad to see the project

progressing but was also

disappointed the shelter had been

left to deteriorate to this state.

“It looks as though it has been a

very long time since any roofing

maintenance was done on it to

the point it had to be closed,” she

said.

Locomotive arrives in Little River

• By Louis Day

SEVEN YEARS ago Andrew

Wilson had a dream of bringing

a locomotive to Little River,

last week that dream became a

reality.

On Thursday, the Little River

Railway Station Trust welcomed

a 62-year-old locomotive into the

station.

Director of operations and

trustee Andrew Wilson dreamt

up the idea of bringing a locomotive

to Little River in 2008

as part of the trust’s 2021 vision

plan.

It was also Mr Wilson who

came across the locomotive on

Trade Me and drove to Dunedin

to assess it.

“I have driven further for

trains, I have gone down to Bluff

over a weekend,” he said.

Mr Wilson said he has had a

passion for trains ever since his

grandmother took him for walks

through the train yard next to

their holiday home in Kaikoura.

“On my grandmother’s death

bed she said I must ask for forgiveness

for introducing you to

trains and I said why? You have

introduced me to a hobby that

will last me a lifetime and she

said not to you but to everyone

else for having to put up with

this hobby of yours.”

EXCITED: Little River Railway Station trustee Andrew Wilson with the locomotive.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Mr Wilson who still has

photos of himself as a child with

locomotives hoped children

today could create the same

memories with the station’s newest

addition.

“The idea is to create that

scene for people to make those

memories and that locomotive

is there to help people do that

so they can look back on those

memories for a lifetime.”

The $8500 locomotive is now

on the tracks connected to a

carriage ready for people to have

their photos taken next to it.

The locomotive was introduced

into service in June 1957

and decommissioned in April

1985.

It spent its entire working role

in the South Island.

Mr Wilson said once the trust

had restored the interior of the

locomotive they would consider

opening it up on special occasions

and maybe even let people

pull the whistle.

The trust does not have a

licence to run the locomotive

along the tracks, however, Mr

Wilson said they could possibly

jack it above the rails which

would allow the wheels to go

round without it actually going

anywhere.

Late night Lyttelton Tunnel closures

From Sunday 24 February, you’ll need to plan your

travel around late night tunnel closures.

These are essential to both install and test a new fire protection

system inside the tunnel.

Work on this $28.7 million project is expected to be completed

by April/May 2019.

Traffic lane closures are timed for late night/early morning

on the lightest tunnel traffic days of the week, that is Sunday,

Monday and Tuesday.

In conjunction with the late night tunnel closures, we are

carrying out maintenance on SH74 (Tunnel Road) to ensure

fewer nights of disruption for motorists and residents. Work

includes replacing some guardrails and road resurfacing work

between Port Hills and Horotane Valley overpasses as well.

Lyttelton-bound traffic into the tunnel for the 10-minute openings

will be unaffected. Traffic leaving the tunnel towards Christchurch

will have to exit onto SH76 Port Hills Road.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

• Real-time traffic information for the Lyttelton Tunnel area is

available at www.tfc.govt.nz

• A schedule of tunnel traffic lane closures can be found at

www.nzta.govt.nz/assets/projects/lyttelton-tunnel/

lyttelton-tunnel-lane-closures.pdf

TUNNEL CLOSED

from 11pm to 4am

Sunday 24 February

Monday 25 February

Tuesday 26 February

The tunnel will open to

traffic for 10 minutes on the

hour on these nights.

Emergency access will be

maintained through the

tunnel at all times.

CHANGE: An application has been made to turn 1/87 Main Rd, which is

currently occupied by the Bloom Room Florist, into a fine wine and spirits store.

Main Rd liquor store

won’t be a ‘booze barn’

•From page 1

Mr Singh’s original

application proposed

turning 1/87 Main Rd

into Thirsty Liquor

Redcliffs. However, Mr

Singh changed the name

to Redcliffs Fine Wine and

Spirits.

The landlord Peter

Croft was absent from

the meeting and was

represented by his wife,

Kate Bovett, who assured

residents they would not let

the store turn into a “booze

barn.”

“Permission to paint

the shop will not be given

and there will be no huge

advertising like you see

around the typical bottle

stores,” she said.

Community Action

on Youth and Drugs, a

Ministry of Health-funded

organisation to reduce the

harm to young people from

alcohol and other drugs,

wants the application

removed because it does

not represent what Mr

Singh is planning. Its

senior project worker Paul

McMahon said the original

application needed to be

removed and a new one

should be submitted.

Mr McMahon said he

would even contribute

to the costs involved

in submitting a new

application.

“The floor plan is

standard for a bottle store,

they [Mr Singh] talk about

cheeses and delicatessen

but there is just a tiny bit of

space,” he said.

application close

Our People

Joanna Norris

From a top role in the fourth estate

Just over a year ago,

Sumner’s Joanna Norris

moved from her role

as editor of The Press

to run events, tourism

and economic agency

ChristchurchNZ. She talks

to Julia Evans about her

20-year journalism career,

an early encounter with

David Bain and her love

of the outdoors

How have you found your first

year at ChristchurchNZ?

It’s been an incredible year. A

year where we’ve had to do a lot

of foundation-laying to make sure

the organisation comes together

in the way that it was intended.

It’s really cool to be working in

this role, at this time in the city’s

history, so I feel really fortunate

and privileged.

Have there been any

challenges?

I think there are a number of

challenges facing Christchurch

and it’s been understanding

which of those to address and

in which order. It’s really been

there’s so much we could do and

so much impact we could have,

the challenge really has been

prioritisation and making sure

that we don’t spread ourselves too

thinly. We are, relatively speaking,

quite a small agency and we

need to make sure where we do

intervene, we’re doing so with the

greatest impact.

What have some highlights

been?

I think the highlights are

seeing the city come alive and

in particular the CBD. In the

time that I’ve been in this role,

we’ve had a real activation of the

central city and we’ve got a real

glimpse of what we will become

as a city. But also playing a role in

shaping, firstly in the economic

insights that the city has about

itself and understanding what

our challenges are and what

the opportunities are. But also

helping Christchurch become

proud of itself and tell that story

about who we are and that we

INFLUENCE: After five years as editor of The Press, Joanna Norris moved into a new role as

chief executive of ChristchurchNZ.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

have this incredible city and

helping people feel proud of that

is really cool.

What attributes does the city

have that will lure people to

either live here or visit?

We’ve done a lot of work to

understand what it is that is

special about Christchurch so we

can tell an authentic story about

the advantages here. One of the

very first and fundamental things

we have is the lifestyle that we

have and the proximity we have

to our incredible environment.

Whether it’s the Port Hills or

the beaches and I’m very lucky

to live at the beach in Sumner.

So my kids and I and husband

and I love walking on the beach,

we’ve just got this wonderful

life. So there’s the lifestyle piece,

there’s the fact that it’s affordable

in comparison to other parts of

the country. We’ve built this new,

beautiful resilient city and we

have a lot of the big grown-up city

amenities. We’ve got four tertiary

institutions, a skilled work force,

and underpinning all of this, is

this sense of Christchurch being

able to carve a path. The way we

term it is that we’re explorers,

we always have been, we always

will be, and Christchurch has

this wonderful opportunity

to continue that sense of

exploration. All of that packaged

into one great sized city that’s easy

to get around, why wouldn’t you

live here? We’ve been through an

enormous amount as a city, a lot of

pain, and as a journalist and editor

I witnessed and heard so many

stories of pain throughout the

post-quake period. Everywhere we

looked there was sadness. It was an

incredible trauma that the city has

gone through and some members

of our community are still going

through. But the flip side of that,

we’ve had this opportunity to

reinvent who we are, rebuild the

city, build stronger, safer buildings

and that’s been a real advantage for

us now.

How did you end up living in

the city yourself?

The interesting thing for me

about Christchurch is that I’m not

from Christchurch, I didn’t grow

up here. I grew up in Dunedin,

but I was born in Kaitaia. My

husband and I and kids moved

back here in 2012, we made a

kind of crazy decision to move

to what Christchurch was at that

time. Just before I took this role,

we had an opportunity to move

back to Wellington, which was

where we most recently moved

from but we chose Christchurch.

It’s the city that gets under your

skin and becomes part of who

you are. When you become

involved in the reconstruction of

the city and telling that story as

a journalist and now in my new

role, they are once in a lifetime

opportunities. Cities are always

organic, I think that’s the thing

that’s important for Christchurch

to remember. There is no end

point, there never is for a city.

Cities are by their nature, organic

and evolving.

Do you have any personal

goals for your time at

ChristchurchNZ?

People often ask me this

question, like what’s my five-year

plan, sort of thing. I have very

clear goals for this organisation,

we’ve got 10-year goals that we’re

committed to for the city. So

the answer is absolutely from a

professional point of view, but

from a personal point of view, no.

It’s really just about being as useful

to this community as I can be with

the skills and experience that I

have. Also enjoying life and taking

the time to spend with family.

How and when did your

journalism career begin?

I was studying music at Otago

University, I was doing a double

degree in English and music, I

play the violin. David Bain was

in a class of mine. We were a very

small class, there were only about

20 of us. My then boyfriend and

I at the time made the decision to

leave Dunedin, it was sort of quite

tainted by that experience (the

Bain murders). We transferred

up to Auckland University and I

finished up my English degree.

I realised in the course of that, it

was when North and South was

a very, very powerful magazine

and I just realised the power of

storytelling and how it can better

communities with these really

important stories that we tell

about ourselves. I then went to

journalism school in Auckland

and my first job was at the

Dominion Post in Wellington.

to taking Chch into the future

You did a stint at the Otago

Daily Times as well?

I did. I was living and working

in England, in Cambridge, with

my then boyfriend, now husband.

He’s a technology writer, we met at

journalism school. There are three

couples from our class and we’re

all still married. My father was

diagnosed with terminal cancer,

my parents lived in Dunedin,

so I moved back and worked at

the ODT. In my last role [South

Island editor-in-chief for Fairfax],

I had 19 community papers in my

portfolio, so I have had very close

contact with community papers.

When you started your career,

did you ever think you would

end up as an editor?

No, I’m not that deliberate.

Editing is an incredible privilege

and amazing fun and very hard as

well. I was just very fortunate to

get that opportunity.

Have any of your stories stuck

with you over the last 20 years?

Yes, there are some really, really

powerful ones. The very first

big story I covered as a junior

reporter at the Dominion. I was

working over Christmas and a

young couple [Ben Smart and

Olivia Hope] were reported

missing in the Marlborough

Sounds. Those stories always stick

with you.

Then more recently,

Christchurch. It was interesting

in itself, I was in Wellington

when the quakes of 2010 and

2011 happened. We were working

very closely with the team at The

Press and in fact on the evening

of February 22, we in Wellington

helped The Press team put out that

edition that landed on people’s

driveways on February 23.

That was pretty crazy and

incredible. That night the

reporters all worked, they filed

their copy and we helped produce

that edition of The Press from the

Wellington newsroom and that

next morning that Press was on

people’s driveways. I used to talk

about that publicly and people

would cry.

That’s the power of the media,

it’s so important.

BIG STORY: Joanna

Norris’ journalism career

started after being in a

class with David Bain

at Otago University,

while the first big story

she worked on was the

murder of Ben Smart

and Olivia Hope in

Marlborough.

Have you had any big

fumbles?

That’s the nature of news. There

have definitely been things that

I have reflected on later and

thought we could have handled

that differently, or we could have

put more thought into that, or I

wish we’d had more information

before we published that, we

would have been better off. That

being said, I always describe

the media as a bit of a blunt

instrument, in that you wobble

towards a position of truth

with each iteration of a story.

Journalists are not academics

sitting for three years doing a

thesis and producing a body

of work. You work to whatever

time you work to, weekly, daily

or digital, you get to the truth

and you hold those in power

accountable.

Do you miss working in the

media?

There’s a lot I miss about the

media, absolutely. But I am

also very fortunate to work

with journalists right across the

spectrum and that’s quite a treat

as well.

What do you see for the future

of journalism?

I have great hope for the

media. I think the commercial

proposition is deeply challenging

and very, very difficult in a New

Zealand environment where scale

is a challenge. There are only five

million people, there are only a

certain number of consumers

who are prepared to pay for a

product and a limited number of

advertisers.

But journalism is so

fundamental to a safe and strong

society that there must be a

way through this and I think

journalism is as good now as it’s

ever been.

Some of the investigative work

that’s done by teams across the

country by all media agencies

really makes a difference and

it’s absolutely essential that

the fourth estate keeps an eye

on people in power. It has to

continue.

Are you surprised or

disappointed by the moves made

by Channel Nine in Australia to

sell New Zealand assets such as

The Press?

No, media ownership

changes, it always has done. I

think when I worked for what

was then Fairfax, I think I

worked under three different

owners in the course of my career.

I always said to my newsroom,

you just do your job, your job

is to be a journalist and hold

the powerful to account and

be a watchdog and champion.

It’s other people’s jobs to worry

about what the governance and

ownership looks like. If you’re

continually worried about what’s

around the corner, you don’t do

your job properly.

Do you have any advice for

aspiring journalists who want to

get into the industry or young

reporters?

Just stay curious. But secondly,

know the power that you have. As

a young journo, you don’t quite

understand the words that you

write have an impact and often

you don’t see that impact. It will

change someone’s behaviour, it

will happen behind the scenes,

or the language that you use will

change someone’s life. Just always

be cognisant of the power that

you have both to do good and

damage.

What made you jump from

journalism to the corporate

world?

I had worked as the editor of

The Press for five years and had

overseen a lot of change in that

time. Some of that change was

really challenging to lead. I was

aware I would need to do a lot

more of that change management

as time went on. Again, I was

aware it was likely the next step

in my career at what was then

Fairfax would have been moving

back to Wellington.

ANNUAL PLAN 2019-20

E19/7226

Environment Canterbury is considering its 2019-20

Annual Plan.

While the plan largely aligns with the most recent

Long-Term Plan, small changes to our fees and charges

policy and our revenue and financing policy are being

considered. Increased funding of public transport to

match funding from NZTA and increased funding in water

management, pest control and biodiversity are also being

considered, as well as a reduction in air quality funding.

These will impact on some ratepayers, depending on

their location, when the 2019-20 Regional Council

rate is confirmed.

Our People

LEADERSHIP: Joanna Norris said she moved to the corporate world so she could play a new

role in the city’s development.

Influencing things from

inside rather than outside

•From page 7

At the same time as I was

considering all of this, this job

became available and people had

conversations with me about this

role. So I had to weigh all of that

up and I realised the city was at

a bit of a watershed period as the

elections were on, there was a lot

of change going on in the city. I

saw, without wanting to overstate

my relevance, an opportunity to

influence things from inside the

tent rather than observing from

the outside. I was very fortunate

that I was with a leadership

cohort within the city that had

gone through a period of the city’s

history.

Then I had a chance to play a

different leadership role in the

city. It’s been interesting observing

the gendership in the city. When I

first came here I was a bit different

from the previous editors. I

would go into these networking

meetings in the city and I would

be the only woman. It was really

weird and confronting and scary.

That’s not so much the case

anymore, there are a lot more

peers who are women. A lot of

great men and women.

Can you tell me a little bit

about your family?

I’ve got two kids who are

amazing. They’re nine and

11. My husband Blayne is a

journo, so I suppose I’ve got a

naturally affinity to journalism,

we’ve grown up together. He’s

a freelancer and he’s primary

caregiver for our kids. I think –

and he and I often talk about this,

it’s one of those things that people

don’t often talk about – it’s really

hard to have two careers.

You’ve really got to think about

that as you start out in life and I

think it’s important for couples

to be really honest about that

together and work out how

they’re going to manage that

because kids are a full-time job in

themselves. It’s full-on. We always

thought that it would get less

work as they went to school, but

actually it gets more because they

get more sophisticated in their

needs. We’re lucky and I’m lucky

I get a lot of time with the kids as

well. Blayne and I share it pretty

well, although he did go surfing

this morning, which meant that I

was late for work but that’s okay.

What do you do on a day off?

I’ve got a good work-life

balance, I work pretty hard at

that. So we’ll go up into the hills,

we’ll go on tramps. We love

tramping as a family. We spent

quite a lot of time up in Hanmer.

We’re a real beach family. Blayne

has taught Evie and Ollie to surf,

they’re good wee surfers.

BEFORE WE get into this, I

need to say, still no luck on

finding my mouse. That bad boy

is probably long gone.

I’m beginning to dread future

hide and seek games, will I

disappear too?

However, over the last week

Vittoria has started holding

some things closer, and it’s very

cute.

She gets her favourite soft

toys, like her Dragon, wraps

her wee arms around them

and gives them a big, smiling,

moving side-to-side cuddle.

Dragon even gets a couple of

kisses on his cheek sometimes.

Very, very cute.

She even gave someone else’s

teddy a big cuddle at Baby

Times. I can’t wait to see her

give her friends big hugs too.

Last week started out

productively. Over the weekend,

Laura and I cleaned the whole

house (hence the mouse update)

with a focus on Vittoria’s room.

Her room has seen a lot of use

for storage, including her cot.

We’ve been co-sleeping with

the wee darling for a while now.

She got sick last year which

ended a joyous run of full nights

of sleep until we gave in and let

her into the big bed.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Long road ahead

getting back to cot

Thing is, getting her back into

sleeping in her own bed is not

going to be easy.

In bed with one of us, she

can roll over, touch us and get

reassured straight away that

she’s safe and with her parents.

In the cot, not so much.

It really highlights how much

like a little prison those things

are when you see your daughter

standing there, holding the bars

and crying like the world just

ended.

And if you’re used to having

your parents next to you when

you settle back to sleep, dad just

holding your hand is not going

to cut it.

So we’ve got a long road ahead

to get her back to a place where

she feels safe in her cot and

happy to sleep there all night.

A lot of that road will involve

very little sleep too.

To add to the difficulty, this

week Vittoria and I have got

some sort of cold. It may be

unfair, but I’m pretty sure I

got it off her since we spend so

much time in close proximity.

Give your

views on plan

for Scott Park

PUBLIC FEEDBACK is being

sought on the draft landscape

plan for Scott Park in Ferrymead.​

The draft plan features native

trees, sealed parking areas,

an established picnic area and

improved access to the beach and

boat ramps.

It is open for public consultation

until March 11. Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

member Darrell Latham said

$145,000 will be available for the

park.

“This will not be enough to

complete the entire project. However,

it will mean that a start can

be made on the most important

aspects of the plan,” he said.

“From my perspective, I would

really like to see the access from

the Ferrymead bridge to the

jetty and planting and green space

enhancements done.”

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the plan

would regenerate and enhance the

popular park by improving water

access.

“Scott Park already meets multiple

community needs, particularly

with regard to recreational

water activities, but we want to

ensure that the area is well-placed

to meet future use,” Mr Rutledge

said.

MORE FUNDING could be

given to the Lyttelton Seafarers

Centre.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has asked

the city council to request

Christchurch City Holdings Ltd

and the Lyttelton Port Company

provide more funding for the

centre.

Christchurch City Holdings

Ltd is the city council’s

investment arm which runs key

infrastructure including the

port.

LPC gives $5000 to the centre

every year, while Christchurch

City Holdings Ltd does not

currently provide

the centre with any

funding.

Community board

deputy chairman Jed

O’Donoghue said the

amount of funding

to go towards the

centre has yet to be

determined.

Mr O’Donoghue

said the welfare of seafarers is a

humanitarian issue.

“I have seen all these poor

buggers in the rain outside the

library trying to talk to family

The centre has had more

amenities, care, support

and wi-fi so they can call

their families back home.

KEEP OUT: The Lyttelton Port Company has advised members of the public to

keep out of the yellow areas at all times.

Port company blasting

at Gollans Bay Quarry

• By Louis Day

THE LYTTELTON Port

Company has started

blasting in Gollans Bay

Quarry.

The first blast took

place on Thursday. The

operation will include more

blasting and the use of large

earth-moving and mining

machinery.

LPC has advised

members of the public to

keep out of the quarry area,

which is owned by the port

company, and stick to city

council walking tracks.

LPC infrastructure

manager Mike Simmers

said the blasting will

typically occur about

noon, depending on the

site activity and other

constraints.

Mr Simmers said the

blasting would be relatively

quiet compared to the

piling for the harbour’s new

cruise berth.

“It may be audible in

Diamond Harbour, but

very unlikely to be heard

in Lyttelton itself. The blast

yesterday was not noticed at

our office,” he said.

The material collected

from the quarrying will

go towards LPC’s land

reclamation project in

which it tis looking to

expand the harbour by

24ha.

“Initial estimates indicate

up to 3.5 million cu m of

material is available from

the quarry.

“However, this may not

all be used to complete

the additional 24ha of

reclamation.”

THE combination of a

The Bay Harbour threeyear-old

received a big

present which has added a

Andr’e has numerous

minimal sight. He has been

unable to interact easily

with other children, and

unable to share in most of

his family’s activities.

That changed when he

Go car for a spin.

impaired mobility. The cars

are adapted to individual

children’s conditions and

needs, and have dual control

– the child can steer,

but an adult has over-riding

control from a remote.

The aim is to help

children develop spatial

awareness and allow them

to be part of the family

action. Ferrymead

Rotary heard about

Andr’e and funded his

$1600 car through a

special quiz night.

His mum Dannii,

saw potential for

the car to help him

interact with other

children and to allow

him to take a greater

part in family life.

And her hopes have

been fulfilled. Going

to the park is a family

favourite, and Andr’e

has ridden to the local

library and along the

New Brighton pier.

“It has added a lot

more quality of life for

Andr’e and he’s happier

in the family,” said Ms

Rasmussen.

past 100. A key 20-run partnership

for the last wicket meant

Sumner were able to post 136.

Leaving Saints 167 to win.

Sumner had 25min to bat

before lunch and Sumner were

fizzing to get a couple of quick

wickets before the break and that

most entries he has ever seen

in the competition with players

joining from other clubs to play.

Play is already under way and

there was a good crowd on Sunday

to watch some of the opening

games.

Finals weekend is on April 6

and 7 and the public is welcome

to go down and watch the games.

Another cricket tie

they did with Dan Vann taking

three and Dean Smith picking

one to have Saints 20-4.

After the break Saints again

fought back putting on 62 runs

where two wickets fell in quick

succession. R Gibbens then came

to the crease and took a liking

to the spinners picking up 30

off two overs and things were

looking dire for Sumner as Saints

only needed 16 to win with four

wickets in hand and two hours to

get them. But some tight bowling

from Dan Vann 4-27 and Simar

Singh and some great fielding/

poor running meant Saints lost

four wickets, the last with the

scores tied.

Earlier in the season Sumner

and St Albans also tied in the

T20 competition.

David Cox supported

people in a quiet way

Port Hills

MP Ruth

Dyson

pays

tribute to

former

city

councillor

and Hagley-

Ferrymead Community

Board member David

Cox

We are very fortunate in

New Zealand to have so

many people in our communities

who are “givers”

– whether it’s people who

serve on school boards,

coaches and referees of

our sports teams, people

who run our residents’ and

community associations,

or people who visit and

support those who are

otherwise isolated in their

homes.

It’s part of our culture

that should be celebrated.

The celebration of that

community giving was the

theme at the funeral service

for David Cox, whose passing

the Bay Harbour News

acknowledged last week.

David had an “ABCs” of

giving – arts, business,

community and sports. He

supported so much within

our area and the wider

Canterbury community –

driven by a sense of returning

to our country – his

adopted home – because he

felt so fortunate to be able

to make this his home.

This drive made me

reflect on how much we

take for granted if we

were born here and how

much we should actually

value what we have as New

Zealanders. We have access

to so many opportunities

here that many from other

countries dream about –

we should make the most

of them!

I want to add my reflections

on the life that David

Cox lived and celebrate

the fact that he had this

drive of returning his

good fortune. So many organisations

and individuals

benefitted from his generosity

of time and spirit. He

supported so many people

in a quiet way, connecting

people and groups, and

always with a manner of

impeccable respect and

politeness.

At his funeral, our mayor

reflected on the demise of

David Cox

these manners with the advent

of social media, where

hurtful and unnecessary

comments are accepted.

But I am not as despairing

as her words, as I see the

continued community activity

and others who have

followed in the example

set by David Cox – we are

all better off when we give

our times and skills to our

community.

May his family be

comforted in their loss and

may he rest in peace.

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.

Lyttelton resident

Alison Ross QSM

writes about the

repairs to Evans

Pass Rd

BOTH Lyttelton and

Sumner residents will be

delighted that the Evans Pass

conduit will be completed

and open for traffic

movements in March.

I must say, I thought

Lynette Ellis, the council

spokesperson,was

somewhat mean-spirited

in not acknowledging

the contractors and

stonemasons by name. So,

bouquets to Fulton Hogan

and their workers for a

magnificent job. Well done

to you all.

I note, however,

within the list of

accomplishments and

factual detail there is one

glaring omission, the

return of our geckos and

skinks.

Much was made of the

temporary relocation of

the reptiles at the time “to

protect the population”

yet now, in spite of the

completion of road and

infrastructure they remain

in the darkness and cold of

the Deans Bush leaf litter.

The reptiles are a Port

Hills colony with a genetic

memory and history extending

back to the last

interstadial approximately

8000 years ago.

Let’s have no

prevarication, delays or

excuses; immediately

return our fauna to their

home amongst the warm

rocks of the Port Hills

where they belong and not

repeat the sorry saga of

Powelliphanta Augusta,

(NZ native giant land

snail), some 4000 of which

were removed from the

Stockton and Denniston

plateaus only to languish

to this day, the majority

deceased, in a chilled

container somewhere on

the West Coast.

scale really means.

An inspiring lifestyle retreat

BAY HARBOUR

869 Purau Port Levy Road, Port Levy

By negotiation – realistic vendor

5-6 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2-3 living rooms | 4 outdoor sheds | 3 bay barn/garage (1.23 hectares approx. Title pending) | Listing Number; 8453

As they say there is no substitute for quality

and this home has that in spades.

North facing, sheltered, and nestled amongst

mature trees and gardens this superbly built

spacious light and airy home of about 337m2

enjoys lovely sea and rural views and is also

very private.

Comprising 5/6 very generous bedrooms,

3 bathrooms including an en suite, and 2/3

living areas. The kitchen and lounge are

enormous, the hallways wide and most of the

rooms open on to covered verandah giving

shelter in Winter and shade in Summer. The

main living area is octagonal in shape and is

huge with a large wood-burner and also opens

onto the verandah and lawn area giving great

indoor outdoor flow.

The farm house style kitchen features plenty

of storage, a Rayburn stove connected to a

wetback and the entire house is centrally

heated with a diesel burner supplying hot

water radiators. Fully insulated throughout

and with double glazed cedar joinery you can

see and feel no expense has been spared on

this build.

The land (1.23 hectares approx. Title pending)

is a mixture of lawns, native plantings a

paddock and 2 very well established orchards.

There are 4 outdoor sheds, a good sized 3 bay

barn/garage, lockable with concrete floor,

3 phase power and toilet and good water

supplies with a spring and deep water bore.

This property gives many options due to its

size, i.e. extended family or Airbnb etc. etc.

and only a 12 minute drive to the Diamond

Harbour ferry giving access to Lyttelton and

the city.

This is the perfect opportunity to have the

lifestyle without having too much to look

after, a chance to be semi self-sufficient and all

this only 45 minutes approx. drive from the

city.

Only approx. 10 years old, to build this now

to this quality would cost well in excess of

the asking price so this is great buying in a

beautiful location.
