Marriage and Sumner: A great partnership

• By Louis Day

SHIRLEY AND Ron Burgess

are two of Sumner’s most

recognisable people.

Last week they celebrated 65

years of marriage.

Sixty-one of those years they

have spent in Sumner and they

say they plan to spend the rest of

their lives there.

“It just feels like home. We

love being part of a caring

community – and of course, we

love walking and enjoying the

lovely beach,” Mrs Burgess, 86,

said.

Mr and Mrs Burgess

Bid for

new bus

service

• By Louis Day

GOVERNORS BAY residents

have re-ignited their campaign for

a public bus service.

Governors Bay has not had a

public bus service since late 2010.

However, that service was short

lived due to the earthquakes.

In 2017, residents submitted a

request for the 535 bus service to

be extended from Rapaki through

to Governors Bay and to The

Princess Margaret Hospital. This

was rejected by ECan and the 535

route was terminated in 2018.

Said Environment Canterbury

senior manager of public

transport Stewart Gibbon:

“The 535 route was performing

poorly, and when staff assessed

the community’s proposal, our

view was that this extension was

unlikely to have a positive effect

on the performance of the route,

so it was not pursued further.”

Volunteer bus service Gov Bus

was set up to fill the void left by

the short-lived public bus service

and has been in operation since

2013.

But now resident Helen Schulte

is spearheading the campaign

for a public bus service. She said

the Gov Bus service was unable

to cater for the needs of the community.

NEWSPAPERS DON’T often cover 65th

wedding anniversaries anymore because

they are now quite common.

The anniversaries are very special to the

couple involved and their family, but from a

public interest point of view, not so much.

So there has to be a bit of a back story or an X-factor to it for a

65th to make news now.

But in Shirley and Ron Burgess (front page today), there is a

back story.

The couple are very well known in Sumner – and why wouldn’t

they be after living there for just over 60 years.

They’ve been involved in many clubs and done their bit to help

the community, so a story there is.

And they had a great day celebrating.

Crime cameras needed now

• By Louis Day

A KEY FIGURE behind the bid

for crime cameras in Sumner

says they are now needed more

than ever.

Matt Wood said the area

should have some form of

security after a string of petty

crime this month.

Tools have been stolen from

two separate construction sites,

four vehicles have

been broken into,

and cars have

been vandalised.

Mr Wood,

who lives in

Sumner and is

chief executive

Matt Wood

of security

company,

October

Protection, is ready to supply

Safer Sumner with security

cameras after the group raised

$4000.

But police say $20,000 cameras

are needed so they can be

aligned to their system.

Safer Sumner approached the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board for the

additional $16,000 in December.

The group is waiting for more

information which may come

back mid-next month.

is opposition.”

He said the $4000 cameras

would be better than nothing

and would at least act as a

deterrent.

“Criminals will look for two

things, weakness and wealth,

Sumner portrays both and is

especially vulnerable with an

absence of cameras and a police

presence,” Mr Wood said.

Sergeant Franco Lovrich said

it was essential the cameras

aligned with their system.

“If you put a camera that is not

compatible with our system, it

is going to cause a whole heap

of resourcing issues in terms

of who is going to review the

footage,” he said.

Safer Sumner’s Kath Preston

agreed the area desperately

needed some form of security

but saw the cameras that aligned

with the police system as the

most logical option.

“I see the police cameras as the

long-term solution,” she said.

BACH LEASES

A hearings panel has

recommended the city council

extend the lease of the Taylors

Mistake baches by 35 years.

The hearings panel, chaired by

city councillor Sara Templeton,

recommended if the natural

hazard risk is proven to be

acceptable, the city council

should offer bach owners a 35-

year licence, with conditions

to protect heritage, mitigate

natural hazards and maintain

the character of the area. The city

council will consider the panel’s

recommendation next month.

POSSUM CAUSES FIRE

A possum tangled in power lines

on Andersons Rd was the cause

of a fire in Charteris Bay last

week. The fire destroyed about

10m of hedge before the Diamond

put it out. Chief fire officer Bob

Palmer said nobody was hurt but

the possum did not survive.

Still going strong after

65 years of marriage

They have both been heavily

Sts and Mrs Burgess worked as a

secretary for Fletcher Industries.

They first met on Guy Fawkes

night in 1950 during a dance at

the Papanui RSA.

Mr Burgess recalls the night:

“I remember Shirley being a

very good dancer, I had two left

feet and still have. I asked her

for a dance and was surprised

when she accepted. The next step

was asking her to attend supper

together – she accepted again –

then I was so happy when she

said, yes, when I asked if I could

take her home. Little did she

know I didn’t have a car – just an

old bike – and her home was a

good 10km away.”

Mrs Burgess said they clicked

straight away.

“I worked in Riccarton and

Gov Bus chairman Hugh

MacEwan said he fully

service.

“Gov Bus for various reasons

cannot satisfy the needs of the

In response to requests from

‘Confusion’ over open road signs

Police boss

wants them

replaced

• By Anan Zaki

TOURISTS ARE driving too

slow because they don’t know

what an open road sign means.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

is calling on the signs to be

removed and replaced with signs

stating the speed

limit.

Open roads

are marked with

a black stripe

in a white circle

(right) and have

a speed limit of

100km/h.

Pete Stills

“I don’t like

open road signs.

So many people

nowadays don’t know what they

are, particularly foreign drivers.”

“I stopped a couple of Chinese

girls . . . last year and they were

doing 70km/h because that was

the last actual sign they had seen,

although they had gone past the

open road sign but they didn’t

know what it was,” he said.

“We should just have a speed

limit on the sign so that there’s

no confusion on what the speed

limit is.”

However, Senior Sergeant Stills’

pleas have fallen on deaf ears. The

New Zealand Transport Agency

had no plans to change the way

the signs look.

Said an NZTA spokeswoman:

“The de-restricted sign has been

an option for road controlling

authorities to sign the default

open road speed limit in New

Zealand for many years. It

was retained when we went to

100km/h as the upper speed limit

on the open road,” an NZTA

spokeswoman said.

But Automobile Association

principal adviser regulations

Mark Stockdale agreed some

tourists may not be familiar with

the open road sign.

“Although they [tourists]

are encouraged to familiarise

themselves with New Zealand

road rules and road rule

collateral is provided by many

rental companies,” Mr Stockdale

said.

He said open road signs are

still authorised signs and other

factors may be in play when it

comes to tourists driving slowly.

Said Mr Stockdale: “The fact

that some visiting drivers are

travelling below the speed limit

may also suggest that they are

driving at a speed that feels

comfortable to them based on the

look and feel of the road.”

GREAT SUMMER READS

NEW RELEASES

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.

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.

Cruise ships anchor further away

• By Louis Day

CRUISE SHIPS in Akaroa have

started to anchor further away

from the wharf due to concerns

over the impact larger ships are

having on the sea bed.

Larger ships have begun

anchoring at anchorage No

2, about 1km south-east of

anchorage No 1 because it is

deeper in this area.

Acting regional harbourmaster

Ian Fox said this was a

precautionary

move.

“We have

there is no evidence to suggest

this is a problem,” he said.

Mr Fox said anchorage No 2

was only slightly further away

The Last Days of the Romanov Dancers

by Kerri Turner

Petrograd, 1914. A country on a knife edge. The story of two people caught in the

middle – with everything to lose...

A stunning debut from a talented new Australian voice in historical fiction.

Valentina Yershova’s position in the Romanovs’ Imperial Russian Ballet is the only

thing that keeps her from the clutches of poverty. With implacable determination, she

has clawed her way through the ranks, relying not only on her talent but her alliances

with influential men that grant them her body, but never her heart. Then Luka Zhirkov

- the gifted son of a factory worker - joins the company, and suddenly everything she

has built is put at risk.

For Luka, being accepted into the company fulfils a lifelong dream. But in the eyes

of his proletariat father, it makes him a traitor. As civil war tightens its grip and the

country starves, Luka is torn between his growing connection to Valentina and his

guilt for their lavish way of life.

For the Imperial Russian Ballet has become the ultimate symbol of Romanov

indulgence, and soon the lovers are forced to choose: their country, their art or each

other...

A powerful novel of revolution, passion and just how much two people will sacrifice...

CAUSE FOR CONCERN: Larger cruise ships have begun anchoring further down the harbour

following concerns around the impact they were having on the sea bed.

This resulted in 713 passengers

and 50 crew from the ship

having to take shelter in a local

hall.

However, Mr Fox insisted

cruise ships at anchorage No 2

would not be at greater risk than

the ones at anchorage No 1.

“Anchorage No 1 and 2 are

identical in the level of exposure

to weather conditions. If it

happens at anchorage No 2 it

would happen at anchorage No

1. All anchorages provide the

same level of safety for the ships

that use them.”

Museum puts

Lyttelton’s

past on screen

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Louis Day

LYTTELTON Museum will

screen footage of the port town

from the early 20th century to

fundraise for a new building.

Resident Hamish Fairbairn and

the museum have been working

with Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision

to create a journey into Lyttelton’s

past.

There will be two screenings on

March 15 and 16 at the LAF theatre

in Lyttelton. Entry will cost

$20 and the proceeds will go tothe

construction of the new museum

building.

The preliminary design for the

new museum is estimated to be a

month away from being finalised.

Lyttelton Museum vice-president

Lizzie Meek said the screenings

will feature footage from the

early 1900s to 1980s.

“There will be some elements

on the screen that we have lost

now which I think will be quite a

nostalgic experience for people,”

she said.

Some of the footage will be silent

and accompanied with music

from Christchurch-based musician

Motte. Gary McCormick will

host the screening.

PROUD MOMENT: ECan councillor Iaean Cranwell and councillor Cynthia

Roberts flank a proud Pam Richardson and her husband Ian.

Richardson awarded for

outstanding contribution

A FOUNDING member of the Banks

Peninsula water zone committee, Pam

Richardson, received an outstanding

contribution award for her work on the

committee.

At a recent Environment Canterbury

meeting, chairman Steve Lowndes

acknowledged Ms Richardson’s incredible

list of community roles, including former

North Canterbury Federated Farmers

president, former Akaroa Waiwera

Community Board chairwoman, current

Banks Peninsula Community Board

chairwoman and founding member of

the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust.

The trust was created in 2001 after the

Banks Peninsula District Council Plan

identified large natural areas that needed

protection.

The trust has now registered more than

60 covenants on private land, totalling

about 1200ha now protected into the

future.

The trust received a green ribbon award

in 2017 for community leadership.

Cr Lowndes shared his own personal

experience of working with Ms Richardson

on the water zone committee.

“We’d have meetings all across the

peninsula in Lyttelton, Living Springs,

Akaroa, and I always had in my mind I

only have to go around the rim of one

crater but Pam has to go around the rims

of two craters to get home. I always had

that in my mind,” he said.

ECan councillor Cynthia Roberts

described Ms Richardson’s effective means

for getting change.

“I would liken you to the broken record

technique, which is an excellent way of

working away at the stone and making a

difference, and thanks for doing that,” she

said.

Cr Roberts credited Ms Richardson

for including a targeted pest rate for the

whole of the Banks Peninsula and working

towards the Predator Free Banks Peninsula

goal.

Ms Richardson said she was humbled to

be recognised by ECan.

“My work in the community has been

my life. It’s my self-esteem, my recreation,

my hobby. It’s not about me, it’s about

all of us. It’s about you standing in my

shoes and I standing in your shoes and

understanding these issues,” she said.

Targeted rate plan for

Akaroa health centre

AKAROA residents may

face a targeted rate to fund

the Akaroa Community

Health Centre.

The Akaroa Community

Health Trust asked the city

council to provide it with a

grant of up to $1.3 million

and suggested that city

council recover the money

through a targeted rate on

all properties within the

Akaroa subdivision of the

Banks Peninsula ward.

The city council’s

finance and performance

committee has agreed

in principle to the trust’s

request, but it wants to

be confident there is

strong support from the

community for a targeted

rate before it makes a final

decision.

Consultation on the

grant and targeted rate is

open until March 27.

“It is important that

we consult with the

community and hear their

views about contributing to

the costs of the new health

centre through a targeted

rate,’’ said Deputy Mayor

and Banks Peninsula

city councillor Andrew

Turner.

If there is support for a

targeted rate, it will mean

that each ratepayer in the

Akaroa subdivision will

pay an additional annual

fixed charge on top of their

normal rates.

The amount of the

annual fixed charge will

depend on whether the

community wants the

targeted rate to be applied

over a four or a 10-year

period:

If it applies for a fouryear

period, the annual

fixed charge will be

about $130.20 (including

GST) per property. If

the targeted rate applies

for 10-years, the annual

fixed charge will be about

$58.63 (including GST) per

property.

If the targeted rate is

approved following the

community consultation, it

will come into effect from 1

July this year.

IT’S BEEN a tough week.

Completely out of

Vittoria’s hands and not her

fault – no, she has been a

great help.

Last week, a family

emergency saw me head

to Dunedin for a couple of

days.

I’m sorry to be so vague,

it’s not like my whānau

subscribes to the Mafioso

notion of omerta or

anything, it’s just a family

matter.

To put it simply, it’s been,

and still is, an emotionally

trying time for all of us.

Luckily, Laura was able to

be home with Vittoria while

I was away.

She even took Vittoria to

a swimming lesson for the

first time, I’m so proud of

her.

I would have been stuffed

without her.

It certainly gave me an

appreciation for how lucky

we are to have each other to

rely on. Being a solo parent

must be bloody hard.

While I was away in

Dunedin,

Vittoria learned a new trick

– the laughs it has provided

have been very much

appreciated.

You know when you see

toddlers have big tantrums?

And they fall on the

ground, kicking their legs

and screaming?

Imagine that, but in slow

motion and way more chill.

She cries about whatever

is bothering her (most

likely the fact she can’t do

something) then gently and

slowly lies down and looks

at you.

I’m pleased to say she

doesn’t cry or stamp her

VITTORIA

& Matt

feet while on the ground.

Yet.

Watch this space.

When I got back, we

still had a full on weekend

ahead. On Saturday we

took Vittoria out to the

noodle markets and then

Sparks in Hagley Park.

Vittoria tried everything

we ate, ran around the

grounds in and out of

people’s legs and even

managed to borrow

someone else’s chair (they

knew us and offered it, so it

was okay).

She had a great time and

didn’t even freak out when

the fireworks woke her up.

The only downside to it was

that the late night kind of

wrecked her sleep pattern

for a couple of nights. And

ours.

Learn the

rules around

jet skis

Navigation safety officer

Gary Manch outlines the

rules for jet skiers

AFTER MY previous article,

some interest was generated

from my comments about the

rules around jet skis. Here they

are:

•A jet ski is classed as a type

of boat propelled by a motor.

So, the rules pertaining to power

boats also apply to jet skis.

•When within 200m of the

shore, the speed limit is five

knots (about 9km/h) or a fast

walking pace, unless there is a

marked access lane, or the area

is designated an uplifted speed

zone under the Navigation

Safety Bylaw. The bylaw has

maps showing these areas.

This includes rivers or the like

that are less than 200m wide

– five knots is the rule unless

uplifted.

•When within 50m of another

vessel, a swimmer, or structure,

the speed limit is five knots.

•You must be over the age of

15 to operate a powered vessel

unless a person aged 15 or

over is able to take immediate

control in an emergency.

•Life jackets must be worn on

all vessels 6m or less.

•If towing a skier behind

the jet ski, there must be an

observer on board over the

age of 10 who can advise the

skipper of any incidents with the

skier immediately.

•If there is a buoy saying ‘No

power craft’, then that’s what it

means; No power craft, end of

story.

•Jet skis are required to be

identified under part 20 of

the Navigation Safety Bylaw

2016. This means they require

the registration number of

the trailer that tows the jet ski

on either side of the vessel. It

must be 90mm high and visible

from 50m to the naked eye,

above the waterline. There are

some exceptions, and these

can be found under part 20 of

the Navigation Safety Bylaw

2016. The bylaw can be found

at https://www.ecan.govt.nz/

do-it-online/harbourmastersoffice/recreational-boating

Hopefully, this has clarified

some of the issues. Be safe out

there.

National

Korako

reflects on the

earthquakes

and the

Nelson

wildfires

TODAY AS I write this column

it is February 22. A day we will

never forget as that day changed

so many lives and circumstances.

We really took the brunt of the

major earthquakes in our Port

Hills region and today means

something different to each and

every one of us.

It isn’t all doom and gloom

but I do want to take a moment

to reflect on the devastation the

Nelson wildfires have caused. I

am so grateful there was no loss

of life and that can be attributed

to the extraordinary efforts of the

emergency response teams which

ensured the impact on the community

was kept to an absolute

minimum.

I travelled to Nelson to see the

situation first-hand, as many of

our local firefighters were there

working beside the local Nelson/

Tasman crews and I caught up

with most of them.

For us in the Port Hills, we

can really relate to the sense of

loss of beautiful forestland, as

well as the destruction of homes

containing a lifetime of memories.

February 13 was the second

anniversary of the Port Hills

fire. We still see the scars of our

fire on a daily basis here in the

Port Hills yet it has given us an

opportunity to recreate a habitat

more in keeping with its original

environment.

Not-for-profit groups, such as

Te Tapuwae o Rakau Trust (The

Tree Footprints Trust) Summit

Road Society and so many others,

are all involved in planting.

Replica Warbirds thrill RSA members

Sumner Redcliffs RSA

secretary Bernie Godden

reports on the club’s trip

to a private air hanger

at Loburn Abbey where

replica Warbird aircraft are

built

OUR LATEST activity, organised

by committee member Barry

Keast, was a trip to Loburn

Abbey.

Situated in beautiful

countryside on the Canterbury

Plains, with the Port Hills of

Banks Peninsula in the distance,

this seems the most unlikely

place to find an enthusiast who

builds his own replica aircraft.

The collection includes a

Spitfire Supermarine 26B, Titan

Mustangs, a Tiger Moth and

others – all in flying order or in

the process of being constructed

from kits. Typically, these aircraft

are 75-90 per cent to scale,

but every bit as complex and

impressive as the originals.

As we got off the coach, we

were welcomed by Ivan and

Sandy Campbell and offered tea,

coffee and pikelets.

Mr Campbell, with a passing

resemblance to Rock Hudson

(someone said), gave us an

interesting history of the

enterprise, aided by his charming

wife (who also likes to fly). As he

explained, aircraft building is not

his only interest. Some years ago

he became aware of the demand

for a personalised, high-quality

flying helmet for pilots of light

aircraft. After constructing his

own hi-tech model, interest

spread rapidly. Soon they were

landing orders from all over the

world. Each helmet is made to

measure and personalised. The

high-impact protection soon

earned the helmet a reputation

for reducing injury and even

saving lives. Actor Harrison Ford

was among the famous clients

who praised the product for

saving him from serious head

Fire rages, homes at risk

injury in a flying accident.

Following the presentation

and question time, we moved

out from the hangar to watch

our host fly one of his aircraft, a

Mustang. He often flies this and

other aircraft at displays across

New Zealand and abroad as far as

Europe.

After the pre-flight checks, our

intrepid pilot was airborne. No

spectator could have watched this

scene without reminiscing on

the bygone days and the wartime

pilots to whom we owe so much –

a poignant moment.

A short while later we climb

aboard the coach to leave, at a

somewhat more sedate pace,

towards Rangiora. There we

visited the prestigious Rangiora

RSA buildings. We are all very

impressed (and more than a little

envious) of their facilities. Their

members are a friendly bunch,

the drinks are cheap, and the

food first class. A few hours later

we tumble (not stagger) back to

the coach and sing our way back

home. The end to a perfect day.

Over these summer

months, fantastic festivals and

concerts take place. Ōtautahi

Christchurch is now home

to more than 30 migrant

communities. With these

communities come celebrations

and events that showcase our

diverse city.

So you can imagine the real

privilege I feel to be able to go

along and enjoy the different

ways that people share their cultural

backgrounds with us. From

performances to the unbelievably

tasty food they showcase, we are

a far richer more vibrant community

for these events.

There are still plenty of summer

events to enjoy, such as the

first “Our Seas Our Future”

beach clean-up at Sumner on Saturday,

Mt Pleasant and Lyttelton

farmers’ markets, or music in the

parks.

CHAMP: Ava Henderson continued her rich vein of form this year, winning the under-16 girls

title at the Billabong Grom Series.

Ava surfs to grom

series title in style

TAYLORS MISTAKE surfer

Ava Henderson was crowned

champion of the under-16 girls

division after completing the

Billabong Grom Series in style

over the weekend.

Ava, 13, won the final round

of the series at Piha, west of

Auckland, after coming into the

weekend with the series lead.

She took the lead after a

win at the second event in

Whangamata and finishing

second in the opening round at

Mt Maunganui.

With bad weather marching

up the West Coast and set to

slam into Piha on Sunday, the

event was completed in one big

day. Saturday produced solid

1m waves, ruffled by light crossonshore

wind at the south end of

Piha.

Ava advanced to the final with

a score of 8.9 in her heat, which

was good enough for second.

In the final she took things to

another level scoring a 12.0 to

win ahead of Taranaki’s Natasha

Gouldsbury (9.27), Piha’s Liv

Haysom (8.76) and Raglan’s

CUT BACK: Estella Hungerford finished fourth in the Billabong

Grom Series under-18 girls division final.

Brie Bennett (8.4). Ava has been

in a rich vein of form this year.

The previous weekend she won

both the under-16 and under-18

girls divisions at the third round

of the grom series at Curio Bay

in The Catlins.

Fellow Taylors Mistake surfer

Estella Hungerford also had a

strong showing at Piha.

The 16-year-old finished fourth

in the final of the under-18 girls

division. Earlier she won her

semi-final with a score of 11.5.

Sumner runner

takes out Old Ghost

marathon again

SUMNER RUNNING Club

led the way at the 85km Old

Ghost Ultra Marathon over the

weekend with three runners

finishing in the top four.

Ultra-marathon guru Vijan

Armstrong won the West Coast

event in a time of 7hr 7min. This

was the 38-year-old’s third year

competing at the event. He now

has two wins and a second.

Behind him was fellow

Sumner club member and

Armstrong’s occasional training

partner, Chris Dunnell. The

32-year-old police officer

finished just over 3min behind

Armstrong in his first race of

this distance.

The result was the opposite of

the Buller Half Marathon earlier

this month in which Dunnell

won the race in 1hr 12min, just

over 30sec ahead of Armstrong

in second.

Meanwhile, Lisa Brignull

was thrilled to cross the line in

fourth in the female division

of the marathon with a time

BAY HARBOUR

of 9hr 21min. The 44-yearold

competed at the Buller

Marathon, finishing in a time of

3hr 5min to finish third in the

women’s field.

The Old Ghost ultra was

filled to capacity with 300

competitors on the start line,

89 of which were not from New

Zealand. The event started at the

Mokihinui River and finished at

Lyell in the upper Buller Gorge

with more than 2600m of ascent

along the way.

Next month, Armstrong will

travel to the Netherlands to race

in the Rotterdam Marathon as

a qualifier for the prestigious

Comrades Ultra-marathon

in South Africa in June. He

will spend three weeks in the

highlands of Kenya at a training

camp in the Rift Valley, which

is famous for middle and long

distance running.

Meanwhile, Dunnell will

travel to the Blue Mountains

in Australia to compete in the

22km Ultra Trail Australia.

STAMINA: Vijan Armstrong won the Old Ghost Ultra

Marathon for the second straight year.

DIAMOND HARBOUR

Four Holmwood Seasons Realty

Deceased estate- Must be Sold

Panoramic views of Lyttelton Harbour and the Diamond Harbour jetty are what you

get from this property which has been in the same family for over 20 years. This home

will suit retirees, families, or people looking for a weekend retreat and is now on offer

for someone else’s enjoyment.

My owner has given the home a fresh coat of paint and even through it is in the

original condition, there is still plenty of scope to modernise to your taste

Sitting on a sizable sheltered and sunny private section of 1221m2 which is bordering

the reserve leading straight down to the sea, there is no shortage of spaces to escape!

Enjoy being part of the growing community of Diamond Harbour, this location is

handy to all amenities and in zone for Cashmere High school.

If you seek a relaxing hideaway in a position that will never be built

out this represents affordable entry into a coveted position with

the bonus of motivated sellers.

There is no plan B, this will be sold on auction day.

A must to view, call today!
