Antarctic adventure for Woolston explorer

A WOOLSTON woman is

about to head to Antarctica to

in the name of inspiring others

to get out and explore.

Ara Institute of Canterbury

Archibald, 29, is one of five

young people selected to take

part in the Antarctic Heritage

Trust’s Inspiring Explorers Expedition.

the greatest outdoor adventure

I’ve ever undertaken, so I’m

thrilled to have been selected,”

said Miss Archibald.

Halswell

bottle

store plan

shelved

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LIQUOR company has pulled

its plan to open an off-licence

store in Halswell’s Ensign St.

Bottle-O Halswell Ltd director

and shareholder Wendy Gibbons

told Southern View it has

cancelled its contract to purchase

a shop in The Oaks Village

Halswell complex.

The company

was granted an

application to

open an off-licence

liquor store at

29 Ensign St in

December.

However, the

Halswell Residents’

Association

appealed the decision to the

John

Bennett

Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing

Authority last month.

The application made by

Mrs Gibbons and her husband,

Richard, received 37 objections

along with five petitions

containing 32 signatures in

opposition to the store.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston said

the alcohol licensing team has

had no formal communication

that the application has been

withdrawn. •Turn to page 4

FREEDOM CAMPERS seem to be better

behaved cleanliness wise at the moment –

if the number of complaints being received

about them is a yardstick.

On page 5 today we revisit the annual

saga of freedom campers parking up along

Marine Pde.

The city council has received fewer complaints from the

public this summer than they did during 2017-2018.

But Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim

Money says they are still making a mess and she has put her

concerns to the city council.

One of her big concerns is the age old problem of, not to put

a too finer point on it, freedom campers taking a dump in the

sandhills.

And that’s why Joe Public will always give freedom campers

the bum’s rush.

Community groups in online spat

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SPAT HAS broken out

between two Facebook

community pages in Halswell.

Resident Greig Russell has hit

out at the administrators of the

Halswell Community Group

page for being “ousted” from

the group of

nearly 11,000

members for

speaking his

mind.

He was

removed from

the page when

he posted a

Chrys Horn

mobile phone

number online.

Mr Russell since set up a new

page called Halswell Community

Page Uncensored with a

catchphrase of #LETSMAKE-

HALSWELLGREATAGAIN

“They ousted me out of the

community. Short of pitchforks

and tiki torches that is what they

have done,” he said.

Mr Russell was returning

home from a fishing trip in Greta

Valley when he came across a

group of men stranded due to

having a flat tyre. He lent the

men his spare wheel to enable

them to get home and got one of

their mobile numbers. Mr Russell

said the men had promised

to return the spare wheel the

next day, but nothing eventuated

and they would not return

his phone calls and blocked his

number. To pressure the man, he

asked members of the Halswell

Community Group to phone the

number and ask for the wheel’s

return. It was returned after

about a week.

But Halswell Community Project

chairwoman and one of the

administrators Chrys Horn said

it was harassment and would not

be tolerated.

“The trouble is people put up

stuff and they make allegations.

We have had quite a few times

that has happened and the poor

person on the receiving end has

no idea what was going on”.

But Mr Russell responded

saying it “absolutely” was not

harassment. He said he did

something about his wheel being

stolen and he got a result.

“Someone was trying to rip

me off. You put yourself in my

situation. You have got a phone

number that is all you have got.

What are you meant to do if they

block you?”

He said there is no consistency

in the Halswell Community

Group rules and if posts up not

up to their dictation they will

shut it down.

But Dr Horn said it is the

Halswell Community Project’s

page and it has clear rules people

need to follow.

“If people step outside those

and they don’t take no or an

answer then we block them and

that is just the way the world

works.

“Dr Horn said it is a large

group to monitor and because

the administrators have a lot

going on in their lives, they do

not always catch posts breaking

their rules right away. The group

has a wide range of policies

including group members being

unable to advertise businesses,

abuse or make racial comments,

complain about organisations

or make posts containing sexual

references or innuendo. On the

Halswell Community Page Uncensored

Mr Russell said as long

as people “keep it civil” they will

not get shut down.

Dr Horn said the group doesn’t

bare many grudges and she

would like to reinstate Mr Russell

when things settle down and

if the other administrators agree.

But she said several of the

administrators on the Halswell

Community Group have been

blocked from the Halswell

Community Page Uncensored.

Antarctica

Bottle store plan shelved

on a kayak

•From page 1

They will travel to Antarctica, via

South America on a One Oceans

Expeditions vessel. Once there, they

will have the opportunity to explore

the region in kayaks with help from

guides and Dawson.

“Going to Antarctica is incredible

but being able to kayak there will

be even more amazing . . . it means

we’ll be able to get up close to the

landscape and wildlife,” said Miss

Archibald.

As she counts down to the trip,

her focus is on training and ensuring

she has the right gear.

“I’ve been enjoying kayaking

around Banks Peninsula over the

summer. However, the warm temperatures

have been very different

to the polar conditions in Antarctica,

and one of the expedition’s

biggest challenges will be managing

the extreme cold while kayaking –

ideally I’ll get my layering techniques

right.”

As a self-described storyteller,

Miss Archibald was drawn to the

nature of the expedition, which

combines the chance to experience

new landscapes and wildlife.

On her return, Miss Archibald

will share her story with the Pasifika

community, schools, tertiary

institutions and community organisations.

•From page 1

“The application remains

under appeal unless formally

withdrawn by the applicant,”

she said.

The Oaks Village Halswell

developer Roger Bridge would

not comment on whether the

contract to purchase the bottle

store has been cancelled.

Residents’ association

chairman John Bennett

described the news as “a bolt of

lightning.”

He said it was getting

organised for the appeal but the

hearing wasn’t until late May.

“The community was

definitely not in favour of the

bottle store. If that is the case

they will be very happy,” Mr

Bennett said.

Mrs Gibbons said if the

application had proceeded

she would have appealed the

opening hours of 9am-11pm

daily. Mrs Gibbons said it

was very satisfying to see the

application was granted, and

the initial licence and ruling

acknowledged they are good

operators. The decision granting

the application said Mr and Mrs

Gibbons had the experience to

safely sell alcohol.

FEWER PEOPLE have

complained about freedom

campers along Marine Pde over

the summer – but Kim Money says

they are still causing problems.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman

presented her concerns at a city

council meeting about freedom

campers leaving rubbish behind

and defecating in

the sand dunes.

A city council

spokesperson

said the council

has received 20

Kim Money

fewer complaints

about freedom

campers around

Thomson Park and North Beach

compared to last summer. The

spokesperson said 15 fines had

been handed out to freedom

campers parked along Marine

Pde this summer, but could not

say if this was more or less than

last summer.

However, Ms Money said there

continued to be a number of

freedom campers without selfcontained

vehicles parking in the

North Beach and Thomson Park

car parks.

It was not uncommon for these

campers to leave piles of rubbish

and human waste behind, Ms

Money said.

PROBLEMS: Freedom campers along Marine Pde are causing issues.

“They’ll put their rubbish out

beside their vans in the car parks

and then they’ll just take off.”

She said it was common for

freedom campers near Thomson

Park to go into the sandhills

and they use those as their toilet

if they’re not close enough to a

toilet . . . if you ever take a look

down there you’ll find toilet paper

around.”

Efforts to stop this behaviour

had been somewhat successful,

but more needed to be done by

the city council to address the

issue fully.

“We’ve had Government funding

for the new loo to be put in at

Thomson Park . . . they are using

it, but some of the ones who are

parking further down aren’t, said

Ms Money.”

She said not enough ‘no freedom

camping’ signage was up

in the most popular spots and

this was also contributing to the

problem.

“We’ve already asked staff to

put up a sign in the car park at

Thomson Park, but there are not

enough signs. We don’t have any

signs in the North Beach car park

and some of the parking bays opposite

Thomson Park also don’t

have signs.”

The city council spokesperson

said it had listened to Mrs

Money’s concerns and would be

installing more signage in both

car parks next month.

Ms Money said the problem

did not end here though.

She said the number of city

council staff employed to police

freedom campers in these areas

was too small.

“There’s only two for Banks

Peninsula and along our coast,

Fire rages, homes at risk

so they’re really stretched. As a

community board, we do need to

be getting the message across that

perhaps the compliance officers

over the summer period need to

be increased.”

The city council spokesperson

said it had 26 enforcement officers

with the authority to hand

out freedom camping fines, but

only four were rostered on across

Christchurch on a typical day.

Ms Money said too many

freedom campers were escaping

fines by printing out fake stickers

saying their vehicles were selfcontained.

“It’s the little vans that are the

issue. There’s no way a van like

that can hold a toilet.”

The city council spokesperson

said “the council doesn’t have

knowledge of this.”

Ms Money said New Brighton

and its surrounding areas loved

tourists, but the way some were

behaving was ruining the area for

everyone.

“We welcome these people to

our area and it’s great to have

the tourists in the place, but

we also have to look after our

residents and our spaces and

our environment, so to do that,

we just have to send a clear

message that they need to be

responsible and respectful to our

communities.”

Let Her Fly - A Father’s Journey and

the Fight for Equality

by Ziauddin yousafzai

The story of the father who inspired the phenomenon

Let Her Fly traces the inspirational journey of Malala Yousafzai’s

father, Ziauddin, from a boy in Shangla to a man who broke with

tradition and proves there are many faces of feminism. With humor

and sincerity, Yousafzai describes his life before the Talibanization

of Mingora, scenes of his sons Khusal and Atal fighting kites on the

roof, his progressive partnership with his wife Toor Pekai, and the

challenge of raising children in an unfamiliar country. After Malala

was shot by the Taliban, the Yousafzai family was completely

uprooted from their home in the Swat Valley and forced to start over

in the United Kingdom. Now, Ziauddin expresses the complex pain

and joy of his return, six years later, to the site of Malala’s attack.

Let Her Fly is an intimate family portrait by the father of one of the most remarkable leaders in the

world today. Ziauddin and Toor Pakai have set a singular example for parents who hope to empower

their children to make a difference. Let Her Fly will resonate with anyone who has ever cared for a

child, as Ziauddin Yousafzai shares what he’s learned from his children, and what he hopes to teach

the world.

The Great Wide Open

By douglas Kennedy

It’s 1980s New York. Heady, excessive times. Alice Burns - a

young book editor - is deep into a manuscript about the morass of

family life. The observations resonates, perhaps because she has

just watched her own family implode. As she reads she wonders:

When did the sadness start? And could it be that unhappiness is

a choice? Thus begins a great American epic which follows Alice

as she navigates high school bullying, first love and sexism at an

elite college, a spell in 1970’s Ireland, and a tragedy that sends her

stateside as the US embraces a cowboy actor named Reagan. But it

is also the tale of her endlessly complex parents and brothers; how

their destinies are written by the lies they tell themselves and others.

The Great Wide Open is an immensely ambitious and compulsive

saga; a novel which will speak volumes to anyone who has

marvelled at that pain that can only be caused by family itself.

approach to quick fix cooking.

tips and techniques for getting ahead in the kitchen so cooking is always stress-free. With

Mary’s trusted advice and recipes, discover how easy fantastic fast cooking can be.

Annelies – A novel By david r. Gillham

A powerful and deeply humane new novel that asks the question:

What if Anne Frank survived the Holocaust?

The year is 1945, and Anne Frank is sixteen years old. Having

survived the concentration camps, but lost her mother and sister, she

reunites with her father, Pim, in newly liberated Amsterdam. But it’s

not as easy to fit the pieces of their life back together. Anne is adrift,

haunted by the ghosts of the horrors they experienced, while Pim is

fixated on returning to normalcy. Her beloved diary has been lost,

and her dreams of becoming a writer seem distant and pointless

now.

As Anne struggles to overcome the brutality of memory and

build a new life for herself, she grapples with heartbreak, grief,

and ultimately the freedom of forgiveness. A story of trauma and

redemption, Annelies honors Anne Frank’s legacy as not only a

symbol of hope and perseverance, but also a complex young woman of great ambition and heart.

Anne Frank is a cultural icon whose diary painted a vivid picture of the Holocaust and made her an

image of humanity in one of history’s darkest moments. But she was also a person—a precocious

young girl with a rich inner life and tremendous skill as a writer. In this masterful new novel, David R.

Gillham explores with breathtaking empathy the woman—and the writer—she might have become.

Further traffic concerns raised

SPEED LIMIT changes on roads

New Zealand Transport Agency

should turn its attention to the

two roundabouts between Anzac

Drive New Brighton Rd and

Travis Rd.

Mr Smith said these roundabouts

were very busy and the

70km/h speed limit through

them would make crossing the

road dangerous for students.

Ms Davis said potentially hundreds

day to get to school.

“We expect to have about 2500

people on site so if it’s 25 per cent

of that who cross the road . . . so

we’re really concerned about the

plan for Scott Park in Ferrymead.​

improved access to the beach and

boat ramps.

It is open for public consultation

until March 11. Linwood-Central-

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

aspects of the plan,” he said.

“From my perspective, I would

really like to see the access from

the Ferrymead bridge to the

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

with regard to recreational

water activities, but we want to

to meet future use,” Mr Rutledge

bought the lease for its building

for just $1 a year.

The city council has agreed

to sell the lease of the damaged

Wainoni Park Youth Activity

Centre (known

as The Bunker)

to A-Town Boxing

Gym, on the

condition that

A-Town funds its

repairs itself.

Jamie

Roberts

A-Town have

been renting the

space since 2005,

but it was badly

damaged by an arson attack in

2014.

A-Town boxing gym’s manager

Jamie Roberts said over

$100,000 of damage still had to

be repaired, but the city council

had previously said it could not

justify paying for these repairs.

Mr Roberts said the handing

over of the lease was the best

option for all involved because

A-Town could finally get on with

seeking out funding options for

the repairs after years of not having

any power to do this.

“It gives us stability, we’ve

been in the community almost

20 years and now we’ll be there

for another three 11-year leases.

We’re pretty confident that

we’re not planning on going

anywhere.”

He said A-town was currently

in talks with a number of agencies

including the Rata Foundation

about getting funding for

the repairs.

“If we were to do sausage

sizzles we’d never get there, so

we’re going to look into funding

applications and different agencies.

It’s probably not something

one outfit is going to fund, it

might be a joint venture between

different people.”

Mr Roberts said the gym

had offered so much to its

surrounding community for

many years and having this

stability meant they could

continue to make a difference.

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 Southern

View acknowledged.

David had an “ABCs” of giving

– arts, business, community and

sports. He supported so much

within our area and the wider

David Cox

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 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 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 time

and skills to our community.

May his family be comforted

in their loss and may he rest in

peace.

Fire rages, homes at risk

End of an era for Avonside old girl

• By Matt Slaughter

PATRICIA TURNER made

some of the best memories of her

life during her time at Avonside

Girls’ High School.

But now the 77-year-old

Linwood resident is getting ready

to say goodbye to her former

school when it shifts from its

Avonside Drive site to a new

shared campus with Shirley

Boys’ High School at QE II Park

next term.

It has been 100 years since

Avonside Girls’ first opened.

Mrs Turner is the secretary

of the old girls’ association and

attended the school from 1955-

1958.

Mrs Turner’s sister Ruth

Aitken (then Turner) also

attended Avonside Girls’, starting

two years later.

Their mother Hilda Batson

was in the first class of students

who started at the school when it

opened in 1919.

Mrs Turner remembered

cycling to school every day from

her house in St Martins

and the “very tall trees that

turned beautiful colours in the

autumn.”

She also made friends that

have lasted a lifetime.

“It seemed to be a happy time

for all of us at that stage . . . A lot

of the past pupils of Avonside,

we meet for lunch every three

months and we’ve kept in touch

and we’re very loyal to the

school.”

She said she had a great

education, a love for English

and history and a strict but fair

headmistress.

Mrs Turner went on to have a

successful career as a shorthand

typing teacher and said her time

at Avonside Girls’ set her up

“extremely well for the market

that existed then.”

When the school was badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake, Mrs Turner

said: “It really was heartbreaking

because the writing was more

or less on the wall that they

wouldn’t rebuild on the site.”

When the gates of Avonside’s

old site close for the last time,

it would signal the end of a

significant chapter in the lives of

its former students, she said.

“In normal circumstances, I

suppose the school could have

continued for another hundred

years, so it does mark the end

of an era and it means that

everything that we remembered

about school will be gone,” Mrs

Turner said.

“They were some of the

happiest days of my life and I feel

it’s now like the closing of a book

on that period.”

An event will be held at the

Avonside Girls’ old site on

Saturday from 1.30pm until 5pm

for past and present students

to reconnect, say farewell and

celebrate the school’s 100 year

anniversary.

Mrs Turner said the event

would have a post-World War

1 theme to recognise the huge

impact that the war had on its

first students.

She said her mother used

to say Avonside Girls’ was an

escape for many of the

school’s first students who

had fathers and brothers who

returned home from the war

traumatised.

“My mother always thought it

must have been a bit of a refuge

for these girls, where they could

just let themselves be teenagers

and they didn’t have to worry

about making a sudden noise or

waking up and hearing their big

brothers screaming,” Mrs Turner

said.

The farewell would include

a performance from a band

playing wartime songs and they

would be serving Anzac biscuits

to pay tribute.

Mrs Turner said hundreds of

former students of all ages would

attend the event, including its

oldest former student, 101-yearold

Beryl Newman.

Current students of Avonside

Girls’ High School will have

their last day at the old site in

mid-April before moving to the

new QE II campus at the start of

term 2.

Tasty Middle Eastern takeaways

a popular choice in Halswell

Now firmly established as one of

Halswell’s most popular takeaway food

outlets, Souvlaki King offers an extensive

range of authentic Middle Eastern food

that’s fresh, healthy and delicious.

In the last few weeks they have introduced

two new items to the menu, offering even

more choice for customers. These are the $11

Snack Box, which comprises scrumptious

hot chips with lamb, beef, chicken, falafel

or mixed, topped with cheese and barbeque

sauce or your choice of chili sauce, and the

traditional Shawarma, which is a roll filled

with meat, vegetarian falafel or feta cheese,

and topped with barbeque or your choice

of chili sauce. This is also $11, or $14 with

hot chips.

Both these items are proving very popular

for lunch, the business owners say.

The souvlakis are available in three

portion sizes – small, large or triple, with

a choice of chicken, lamb, beef, kofta or

falafel and served with coleslaw, lettuce,

tzatziki, hummus and your choice of chili

or barbeque sauce.

All ingredients used at

Souvlaki King are sourced

locally to ensure freshness and

quality, including the meats,

which are supplied by the local

butchery.

The falafel is freshly prepared

every day to their own secret recipe,

and is another very popular item,

even for non-vegetarian customers,

and all the salads and sauces are

prepared on the premises every day.

For a sweet taste, they offer the traditional

baklava, and cake slices,

while beverages

include a selection

of coffees, teas, hot

chocolate, milk shakes

and thick shakes.

Souvlaki King has just

launched its website, www.

souvlakiking.nz, so you can

now order online and your

food will be ready to pick up

and pay for when you arrive.

You can also order by phone,

(03) 322-4888. Pre-ordering is

especially recommended on the

busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Souvlaki King is located at 1

Kennedys Bush Road, with plenty

are Monday to Thursday 10am-8pm,

Friday 10am-9pm, Saturday 11am-

Quality second-hand clothing

at bargain prices

When you need to stretch the budget to buy clothes

for the family, or perhaps a designer outfit for a special

occasion, you certainly won’t be over-stretched when

you shop at SaveMart.

Offering a huge selection of quality recycled clothing, shoes

and accessories as well as books and bric-a-brac, SaveMart has

stores throughout New Zealand, including four in Christchurch,

conveniently located in New Brighton, Papanui, Hornby and

Sydenham.

The business was established some 40 years ago, and over the

past four decades has become a favourite with shoppers around

the country, who are looking for bargains, but still want to look

smart and well dressed.

The friendly staff are dedicated to bringing quality products for

their customers with new stock arriving every day, and they are

always ready to help and advise if required.

SaveMart also supports and helps children with cancer, and

with stock moving quickly, they are always needing new items,

so any school, kindergarten or charity organisation wishing to

join them in a recycling clothing project or to provide a clothing

bin site should contact them at info@savemart.co.nz

Wellbeing & Beauty

Cosmetic dentistry with a

personal approach

A smile that has been improved and enhanced with

cosmetic dentistry treatment can have a significant

and positive effect on a person’s self-confidence in any

situation – whether social or business.

That’s where Smile Concepts in Colombo Street,

Sydenham comes into the picture. Offering a personal

approach to dentistry, the experienced team at Smile

Concepts provides a full range of cosmetic dental

treatments, including colour restoration, veneers, bridges,

crowns, dental implants and teeth whitening.

For teeth whitening they use the sought-after Zoom

whitening system, currently one of the most effective and

safest methods available on the market. Opalescence is

another in-office whitening system, and Smile Concepts

offers this very popular take-home whitening system to

accommodate patients’ busy lifestyles and budget.

For anyone seeking cosmetic treatment they offer

advice on the best and most reasonably priced options,

but ultimately it is the patient’s decision as to what

treatment is given.

In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Smile Concepts

provides full and partial dentures as well as the full

range of general dentistry treatment at reasonable prices,

including root canals and wisdom teeth extraction.

They also provide dental care services for children and

adolescents with special needs.

For nervous patients, they provide conscious sedation

(either oral sedation or ‘laughing gas’), making the

process a lot less stressful, and with their emphasis on

preventative dentistry they recommend regular checkups

to eliminate major problems occurring. Emergency

appointments are available at short notice.

Smile Concepts’ dental hygienist helps to keep gums

healthy, and by following her advice on healthy oral habits

you will keep your teeth and gums in good condition

between visits. New patients are welcome.

Smile Concepts is proud to work with the local

community, supporting initiatives such as Child Safety

Awareness Programmes, the Special Children’s Christmas

Party and is a regular donor to the University of

Canterbury Foundation.

To find out about the full range of services they offer,

visit their website at www.smileconcepts.co.nz or call

them on (03) 332 6399 to make an appointment.

They are located at 104 Colombo Street, Sydenham,

with ample parking available and a bus stop close by.

REAL ESTATE

An unparalleled lifestyle in magical Moncks Bay

242 Main Road, Redcliffs - “As-Is, Where-Is”

Auction: Thursday, 14 March 2019 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number SM0166

Treasured by two generations and offering

a truly once in a lifetime opportunity, this

tantalizing home upon a 2853m2 section

enjoys an overwhelming tranquil setting and

is presented to the market on an uninsured

“as-is, where-is” basis.

Situated in the tightly held locale of magical

Moncks Bay, this property makes a memorable

first impression and was constructed in the

1960s but has naturally received extensive

modern enhancements including a Bruce

Banbury architectural renovation in 2004.

Resort-style serenity is provided by the

colourful Clivias as well as the established

greenery and palms trees that border the

swimming and spa pool, with the outstanding

views and majestic cliff face backdrop only

escalating the property’s visual appeal.

Spacious living areas are complemented

by the sizeable Kwila deck, water feature

and idyllic alfresco surroundings which

have previously hosted a wedding and could

continue to be the scene of many memorable

occasions.

Skylights, the superb use of timber, a

contemporary colour scheme and the

magnificent stone fireplaces create an

incredibly inviting ambience indoors where

you’ll find four double bedrooms, two

bathrooms and a relaxing sunroom area that

comes complete with a spa bath.

With an expansive lawn area and the

picturesque garden at the rear of the property

both epitomise peace and privacy and offer

access up to the top of the section where

you can sit and admire the ocean vistas over

Moncks Bay incorporating from Shag Rock

and right along the Pegasus Bay coastline.

This property can potentially be subdivided

which furthers your options and adds

another element of interest for buyers.

Ensconced in a private lane that sits across

from the waterfront, this property is also

positioned to enjoy the area’s celebrated

microclimate and is located within easy reach

of the beaches, boating facilities, Barnett

Park and the amenities in both Redcliffs and

Sumner.

With floors needing repiling and being sold

uninsured, deemed uneconomical to repair,

this unique “as-is, where-is” opportunity is a

real game changer with the feel good factor

and is guaranteed to attract attention. Your

earliest viewing is advised.

Open Homes: Wednesdays, Saturdays

and Sundays 1:00pm - 1:45pm.

See you at the open homes or for a private

viewing or for more information contact

Alison Carter of Harcourts Grenadier

Ferrymead/Sumner (Licensed Agent REAA

2008) on 384 7950 or mobile 0274 318 960.

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,

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

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

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 suffered 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.”
