Beach access one step further forward

• By Louis Day

THE FIRST set of permanent

access steps between the

planned Coastal Pathway

and Sumner beach have been

completed.

Work on the second steps

started last week.

City council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said work on the

4m-wide Coastal Pathway

would start this month once the

rock revetment wall had been

completed.

One crew is currently

working on the Shag Rock

end of the rock revetment

wall towards Gollans Point,

and another crew is working

from the Sumner Surf

Lifesaving Club towards the

other crew.

The rock revetment wall

has been designed to provide

coastal protection to Main Rd,

as well as to support the Coastal

Pathway which will run along

the top.

Big changes

looming

for Banks

Peninsula

Community

Board

• By Louis Day

WHOLESALE changes loom for

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

Five members of the board may

not stand in October’s local body

elections due to concerns over the

money board members receive

and the time pressures they face.

Chairwoman Pam Richardson,

and members Jed O’Donoghue,

Janis Haley and John McLister

told Bay Harbour News they

are unlikely to run in the next

election, while Felix Dawson said

he has not made a commitment to

run yet.

Tori Peden said she plans to

run again while newly-appointed

deputy chairman Tyrone Fields

said he would run if he was

selected.

The pay rates for the mayor,

city councillors and community

board members are currently set

by the Remuneration Authority

using a population-based

model, so boards in areas with

bigger populations get better

remuneration.

from the editor’s desk

THE DECKS look like they might be

cleared on the Banks Peninsula Community

Board (see page 1).

I’m not surprised why. It comes down

to money and time. There have been

rumblings on the board for sometime about

the remuneration. And that now looks like it will bite at October’s

local body elections.

Most members say they won’t stand or are unlikely to. I

sympathise with them. Being a city councillor or community

board member is a big commitment. Councillors get paid plenty;

it should be a full-time job.

But for a community board member it is a different story. You

need another source of income to pay the bills.

The sooner the Remuneration Authority sorts the Banks

Peninsula stuff the better.

Call to replace dangerous steps

• By Louis Day

RESIDENTS ARE calling for

a pontoon at the Diamond

Harbour wharf.

The wharf currently has a set

of steps where people are picked

up from.

Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman

Richard Suggate said these steps

were dangerous and had resulted

in people falling into the water

on several occasions.

“When the boat

docks there during

a high swell

the rear end of the

boat goes in and

Andrew

Rutledge

out leaving a gap

that people have

to jump across, if

you are elderly or

not able-bodied it can be a real

problem,” he said.

City council head of parks Andrew

Rutledge said planning for

major capital improvements to

the wharf were scheduled to start

this year which would be followed

by public and stakeholder

consultation.

Mr Suggate said it was vital a

pontoon was part of the planned

renovation.

“With a pontoon like they have

in Lyttelton, the boat is hard

against the flat platform.”

Park rangers were at the wharf

last week on Wednesday and

Thursday to carry out repairs to

a loose handrail.

Mr Rutledge said further

maintenance would be done to

the wharf towards the end of this

month.

“General maintenance,

including ‘wear and tear’ occurs

on all marine structures,

particularly during higher use

summer months. A planned

maintenance work programme

is due to start on March 25,” he

said.

In Brief

SUMNER RD OPENING

The road linking Sumner to

Lyttelton will reopen on March 29.

Contractors have spent the past

two-and-a-half years working to

reinstate Sumner Rd, which has

been closed to traffic since tonnes of

rock came tumbling down onto it

from the surrounding cliffs during

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

PUMP STATION PROJECT

Work is under way on a new

pump station at Simeon Quay as

part of a $53 million project to

upgrade wastewater services in

the Lyttelton Harbour area. The

new pump station will connect to

two under water pipelines which

have been built to carry untreated

wastewater from the Governors

Bay and Diamond Harbour to

Lyttelton.

HISTORIC PHARMACY

The old pharmacy building on

Rue Lavaud in Akaroa is unlikely

to receive city council funding

for its remediation. The owners

of the historic building applied

for funding from the social,

community development and

housing committee. However,

city council staff recommended

the application be rejected. The

committee is due to make its

decision on the funding today.

Richardson, Tori Peden and Tyrone Fields – may have some new faces after the

local body elections in October.

Board changes loom

•From page 1

Banks Peninsula board

members – excluding the

chair, deputy chair and city

councillors – receive $9670

a year.

That is less than half the

$24,098 paid to Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

members.

Ms Richardson is paid

$19,342, while Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

chairman Mike Mora is

paid $48,196.

City council secretary

Jo Daly said the

Remuneration Authority

has indicated it would be

taking a new approach

following the local body

elections this year.

However, Remuneration

Authority director Mike

Kunz said no decisions

regarding the remuneration

of community board

members had been made

yet.

Rev McLister said he will

not be run again due to the

lack of remuneration for

members.

“It is simply the wrong

mechanism to judge

what a Banks Peninsula

Community Board

member has to do. We

have big problems, we are

bigger than the city and we

have to travel more than

anyone else,” Rev McLister

said.

Deputy mayor and

Banks Peninsula councillor

Andrew Turner agreed the

population-based model

was not an appropriate

system of remunerating

board members.

“It makes the assumption

that the work of a

community board member

is directly proportionate

to the number of people

that they represent and

fails to address the issues

for a place like the Banks

Peninsula,” he said.

Ms Richardson also

did not support the

population-based-model

for remuneration and said

she is stepping down after

nine years because she

wants to spend more time

with her family.

“My reason for standing

down is that I have done

three terms and I want to

spend time with my family

and grandson, which I have

not been able to do as much

as I would like to whilst

being on the board,” she

said.

Mr O’Donogue, who

can sometimes work 40-50

hours a week as a train

driver for KiwiRail, said he

would be stepping down

due to his commitments

on the community board

costing him 20 days of

annual leave a year.

Mr O’Donoghue

also said the current

remuneration rate was a

“barricade to democracy.”

“It is almost a realm

exclusively for the

independently wealthy or

semi-retired, which is not

representative of the whole

community,” he said.

Ms Richardson said if

board members were better

remunerated it would open

up the role to a wider range

of people.

“We need to look at the

remuneration model so we

can encourage the young

ones to come forward.”

Backing for

cruise ship

visits to

Akaroa

• By Louis Day

A LETTER in support of cruise

ships visiting Akaroa has been

signed by 330 people.

Akaroa has a population of just

over 600.

Akaroa businessman Darin

Rainbird who started the letter said

this meant the majority of Akaroa

was in support of cruise ships.

The letter was not only signed

by residents but business owners,

and people who work in the area

as well.

It has been sent to the city

council, Environment Canterbury,

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board and cruise lines to show the

community’s support for cruise

ships to continue visiting the harbour

town.

Mr Rainbird said the purpose

behind it was to get the true voice

of Akaroa out there.

Mr Rainbird said the Akaroa

Civic Trust and the Akaroa Ratepayers

and Residents Association

of had anti cruise ship agendas

that misrepresented the views of

Akaroa residents.

“The only voice that the powers

that be have heard has been

the negative minority, they have

constantly bombarded our civic

leaders and the cruise lines with

negative messages when the majority

of Akaroa actually wants them

here,” he said.

However, Akaroa Civic Trust

chairman Mike Norris denied that

they were against cruise ships.

“We are not anti cruise ships at

all, we are against the problems that

cruise ships create when they aren’t

properly managed, we are just calling

for better management and a

reduction of numbers,” he said.

Akaroa Ratepayers and Residents

Association president Harry Stronach

also refuted the comments

made by Mr Rainbird.

“We are not anti cruise ships, we

are just pro Akaroa,” he said.

Mr Stronach also said the letter

did not mean the majority of

Akaroa was in support of a large

number of cruise ships coming to

the area.

“My feeling and the feeling of our

members is that a large majority

of the people in Akaroa would like

to see a greatly reduced number of

cruise ships in Akaroa.”

Mr Rainbird challenged the trust

and residents association to start

their own letters to prove this was

the case.

Mr Norris and Mr Stronach told

the Bay Harbour News they would

not be doing this.

“That is a very childish game he

is starting to play,” said Mr Norris.

“I think that would be very

counterproductive, the worst

problem is the divisions this

cruise ship debate is causing in the

community,” said Mr Stronach.

SHORT-LIVED: Anchorage No 2 will no longer be the primary cruise ship anchorage point

following a two-week trial.

Liners to revert back to

harbour’s no 1 anchorage

• By Louis Day

ANCHORAGE NO 2 will

no longer be the primary

anchorage point for large

cruise ships in Akaroa.

Larger cruise ships

were originally moved

to anchorage No 2 after

concerns they were

disturbing the seabed at

anchorage No 1.

However, regional

harbourmaster Jim

Dilley said there was

no clear evidence that large

cruise ships were doing so after

a two-week trial at anchorage

No 2.

“It seems unlikely that we’d

revert to the trial position

of anchorage No 2 being the

primary large ship anchorage,

but it could still be used

on occasion, but usually

only on days when there

are two large ships,” he

said.

Mr Dilley insisted the

decision to move cruise

ships back to anchorage

No 1 had nothing to

do with tenders taking

43 minutes to reach

the Queen Elizabeth cruise

ship when they usually take 15

to 20 minutes to reach ships at

anchorage No 1.

Owner of the Akaroa Village

Jim Dilley

Inn and Akaroa Ice Creamery

Darren Angus said he watched

tenders struggle to reach the

Queen Elizabeth at anchorage

No 2 last Monday.

“There was a delay on getting

passengers on and off the ship

which meant the coaches stuck

in town even longer,” he said.

Mr Dilley said there was a

wide array of factors that cause

time difference between tender

trips.

“Tides, wind, the location

of where the cruise ship has

swung within the anchorage

spot, and the fact some ship’s

tenders travel faster than

others.”

Stolen firearms

sold to gangs

• By Anan Zaki

UNSECURED firearms

are falling into the hands of

methamphetamine dealing gangs.

Burglars are frequently targeting

rural homes in the hope of finding

firearms, then selling them on the

black market, police said.

Constable Blair Croucher said

the most commonly stolen firearms

are shotguns and .22 rifles – which

could fetch up to $3000 on the black

market.

“Unfortunately, they are also the

firearms types most favoured by

criminals because they are so easily

converted to a pistol length,” he said.

“Rural locations are targeted such

as farms or lifestyle blocks as they

usually have firearms either for

farming purposes or for recreational

hunting.”

Police said the burglaries have been

ongoing over the past six months, but

could not provide figures.

“If the firearms are not taken in

the initial burglary, offenders have

been known to return to the address

at a later date to target the gun safe

in order to steal the firearms,” Constable

Croucher said.

“There is a ready market for

stolen firearms in this country, and

police believe many of these stolen

weapons will end up in the hands

of organised crime gangs dealing in

methamphetamine.”

Dry ground poses injury risk

• By Louis Day

RELIEF IS under way for the

bone dry McCormacks Bay

sports field.

The city council has fixed the

broken irrigation system which

led to the field deteriorating over

the summer.

But the fix has come too late

for Sumner Rugby Football Club

which wanted to use the ground

for its pre-season training.

Rugby development officer

Riki Tahere was envious of

Ferrymead Bays FC’s luscious

training pitch at Barnett Park.

“If you were comparing apples

with apples, our one would be a

bit of a rotten one,” he said.

Mr Tahere said the

McCormacks Bay sports field

was dry and solid posing a

potential injury risk.

He suspected the field had

not been watered for six months

before city council completed

repairs of the irrigation system

and watered the fields last week.

However, city council manager

of community parks Al Hardy

said it was difficult to know

how long the issues with the

irrigation system had existed.

Mr Hardy said the field would

be included in the annual

sports field autumn renovation

programme that is scheduled to

start later this month.

Mr Tahere said the field was

currently not in any state to train

on.

“We can run on it but it is just

an injury waiting to happen,

whether it is soft tissue or a

concussion from the hard

ground,” Mr Tahere said.

Mr Tahere said the condition

of the field has been a major

disruption to their pre-season

with their season set to start at

the end of this month.

“As McCormacks Bay got

worse we were constantly

changing venues between South

Hagley and Malvern Park at

the last minute which has really

impacted our numbers.”

Mr Tahere said they

Health of dolphin a concern

• By Louis Day

ONE OF the country’s leading

dolphin experts spotted the

skinniest dolphin she has ever

seen outside the Lyttelton

Harbour on Monday.

University of Otago professor

of zoology Liz Slooten said the

state of the dolphin was a major

cause for concern.

“You can see

when normally

you a see a

smooth straight

line, you don’t

usually see such a

strong neckline,

Liz Slooten

also on the side

of the dolphin

you can see its

ribs,” she said.

Prof Slooten, who has been

studying dolphins for 35 years,

said the poor condition of the

dolphin could be down to a

number of factors.

“Boat strike, pollution from

ships, one possibility is that

dolphin happened to be in the

wrong place while pile driving

was happening and it went deaf,

and a deaf dolphin is as good as a

dead dolphin.”

Prof Slooten said she would

LPC strategic engagement

manager Phil de Joux said it

would be unfair to suggest the

condition of the dolphin was a

result of the construction of

the new cruise berth without

clear evidence.“We’ve worked

with some of New Zealand’s

leading experts from Cawthron

Institute, Blue Planet Marine

and DOC to develop ways to

minimise the potential impacts

and manage the risks. This is all

years ago called Montego Bay,

he hasn’t sung it or played in 39

years,” he said.

“And he played it here at Selwyn

Sounds for the first time in

39 years and everybody just went

off. It was such a bloody fantastic

moment.”

Lincoln businesses and

organisations were able to cash in

on the event.

“I know that Lincoln High

School had something like 60

campervans there, and they

would have around 1000 cars

parked,” Mr Parlane said.

“When you look at the sum,

that’s about $7000 for the high

school.”

The event was a team effort, he

said.

“We’re looking at a 140 volunteers

on the day, stage and crew of

about 30 people and another 60

artists and management and crew

coming in as well,” Mr Parlane

said.

Preparation is already under

way for next year’s event.

“We will look to be announcing

early July with a line-up. We’ve

got a few more signatures to put

on a few more pieces of paper,”

Mr Parlane said.

Artist’s former studio

likely to get grant

• By Louis Day

THE FORMER studio

of well-known artist Bill

Hammond could be set to

receive a $258,782 grant.

City council staff have

recommended the money

go towards renovating

Kilwinning Lodge in

Canterbury St, Lyttelton.

A decision will be made

today.

THe building was

significantly damaged

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Director of structural

engineering company

Structex Will Lomax

bought the lodge from

Hammond in December

2015.

THe top floor, which is

shrouded in rich Masonic

architecture and decor, will

be transformed into new

office space for Structex.

The bottom floor will be

made available for retail.

THe project is expected to

be completed within a year.

Restoration project

manager Monica

Beaumont said the building

HISTORIC: A city council grant could help renovate

artist Bill Hammond’s former studio.

would provide people with

a unique retail experience.

“THere is not a lot of

heritage space left in

Lyttelton and there is

certainly not a lot of

heritage commercial space

available,” she said.

Dark Star to close this month

THE DARK Star Ale house

and Café will close at the

end of the month.

Co-owner of the café

Martin Richardson previously

told the Bay Harbour

News they would consider

limited opening hours but

said this was no longer

possible.

“We have decided that

limited opening hours for

us is not going to be financially

viable, hence why we

are closing in March,” he

said.

Statutory approval for

the cafe building, the

equivalent of a building

and resource consent,

was obtained by a

previous owner through

emergency earthquake

legislation.

That approval expired

in April but was extended

to June 2021.

A petiton on change org

which called for the site’s

statutory building approval

to be extended “until such

time as new services are

built on the Godley House

site” received more than

3000 signatures and was

presented to the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board.

City council head of facilities

property and planning

Bruce Rendall said

they could not consider

extending the lease without

a formal proposal.

“The council continues

to be open to considering

a proposal to transfer the

lease to a new operator,

however, to date no new

proposal or operator has

been presented,” he said.

However, Mr

Richardson said it was

difficult to attract a new

business to occupy the site

with only two years left on

the lease.

Still Pedalling!

Needing to remember the

important things in life

I LOST THE race against time.

This term, Vittoria’s swimming

lessons are on a Monday.

We headed there as per

normal, she had a great time

as per normal. And then we

went to wash and change as

per normal.

Here my race began. I had

forgotten to restock the nappy

bag.

It was like a lead weight in

my gut realising that. Honestly,

it was like some kind of

nightmare – I’m sure other

parents will sympathise.

Or else they’re thinking I’m

some kind of idiot, lying to

themselves that they’ve never

done it. I know you have.

So I had to take a big risk;

put on Vittoria’s clothes and

race home to get a new nappy.

Racing against the possibility

that she would wet said

clothes, or worse, without any

idea of when that may or may

not happen.

Like I said, nightmare. So

I rushed us home, hoping

against hope.

I lost anyway. I got home

and she needed some fresh

clothes. A lesson to be learnt

on my part.

Well, after a bit of lightheartedness,

I need to touch

on something that has hit us

hard as a whānau.

Recently, my Nan, Vittoria’s

great-grandmother, Mary

Miller passed away at 91. The

funeral was held on her 92nd

birthday.

She was an amazing woman,

fierce, determined, sharp as a

tack and as equally at home

wearing the most elegant

clothes at high society events

as she was flinging out her

fishing line to haul in a catch

of blue cod wearing a man’s

flannel shirt.

Widowed young, my Nan

successfully raised six children

as a single mother in the 1950s.

Proper tough.

I am so glad that my daughter

and she could meet and that I

had her in my life for so long. I

dearly hope that I will be able to

teach Vittoria to be like her and

to love the heritage that my Nan

has given her.

Moe mai, moe mai rā I te

rangimarie e Nan.

Sumner batsmen fail to fire against Burnside

Sumner

Cricket Club

captain Dan

Vann reports

on his side’s

two-day clash

with Burnside

SUMNER HOSTED top of the

table Burnside at St Leonards

over the last two weekends.

On day one, Sumner were

asked to bat first and made a

reasonably solid and steady

start.

However, wickets fell around

overseas opener Tom Davie, who

was the mainstay of the innings

with his maiden century (102).

The only other major

contributor was fellow English

overseas player Tom McGeorge

(33).

The pair put on a partnership

of 79 to get Sumner through to a

respectable 241 all out.

In reply, Burnside came out

blazing with their opening

batsmen Alex Heenen (66) and

Tom Dunlop (65) putting on a

112-run opening stand at faster

than a run a ball.

Once they were dismissed,

wickets started to fall and

Sumner were back in the game.

At 196/7, the gamer was in the

SPORT

balance. Burnside ended the first

day at 210-7

On day two, Burnside made a

number of changes to their side,

which significantly strengthened

their team.

They made short work of the

small overnight deficit to take

a lead of 25 when they were

eventually dismissed for 266.

The wickets were shared, but

Nawid Mohammady was the best

of the bowlers, picking up 3-33.

Sumner then went about

trying to build a total that would

challenge the aggressive Burnside

side. Runs came at a steady rate

and at 85/2 things were looking

good. But wickets continued

to fall in steady succession and

Sumner’s innings ended with a

modest 149 all out.

Anton Smail (36) was the pick

of the batsmen, with four other

players getting starts but not

going on. Again, Burnside came

out all guns blazing and went

after the Sumner bowlers who

had no answer to the onslaught.

Burnside managed to run

down the total in just 16 overs

without losing a wicket. Again

both Burnside openers picked up

half centuries.

With two rounds to go,

Sumner remain in the middle of

the table and will look to bounce

back against East Shirley away

from home this week.

Sumner need to be a lot more

patient with the bat and build

partnerships if we want to make

match-winning totals.

Sumner will welcome back in

form batsmen Brett Taylor this

weekend who has just come off

a tonne and half century in the

round before last.

IN FORM: David Fitch won the 1500m and 800m at the

national masters track and field competition in Timaru at the

weekend.

Fitch

brings

home

gold

SUMNER RUNNING Club’s

David Fitch won the 1500m

and 800m at the national

masters track and field

competition in Timaru at the

weekend.

The 1500m was looking

to be a close battle until the

final 400m mark when Fitch

began pulling away to convincingly

win the masters 30-49 age

group and secure gold in the

40-44 age group.

Fitch managed to complete

the double on Sunday in the

800m after he made the decision

to lead from the gun and

secured the overall win in the

masters 30-49 age group and

another gold in the 40-44 age

group.

Fitch continues to demonstrate

his strength at almost

every distance he competes

in. His successful perfomance

at the national masters comes

after he took three golds at

the Canterbury masters in the

3000m, 1500m and 800m.

ACTION:

Adventure race to

finish in Akaroa

• By Louis Day

AKAROA WILL be the final

destination for one of the world’s

largest adventure races.

On Sunday, 250 competitors in

the GODZone Adventure Race

will start a seven-day journey

to navigate their way through a

600km course, which will stretch

throughout Canterbury and

finish in Akaroa. The location of

the start line will be announced

this week.

Said GODZone media manager

Margo Berryman: “It is the

largest in terms of team numbers

and the length of the race.”

Competitors from all over the

world will race in teams of four

and have to execute a range of

disciplines, such as mountain

biking, trekking, kayaking,

canoeing and pack-rafting.

The official welcome and

race briefing will be held at The

Gaiety in Akaroa on Saturday.

Ms Berryman said Canterbury

was the perfect location to host

the event.

“Canterbury was an obvious

location that we all knew we

would eventually end up going

to. It has an amazing landscape

and has an amazing adventure

background.”

The event is being welcomed

by the

Akaroa District Promotions

Society, which is made up of

a group of business operators

in the area. “An event the size

of GODZone has a significant

regional benefit with competitors

staying for to 10-15 days and

purchasing accommodation,

food, rental vehicles and

participating in sight-seeing

activities in the region,”

said executive officer Hollie

Hollander.

Strong results for Point Surf Team juniors

Point Surf Team secretary

Steve Tyro reports on how

the club’s juniors are going

WE HOPE you are all having

a busy summer surfing and

making the most of the warm

water.

This summer, the PST

juniors have ventured from

Mt Maunganui to Invercargill

in pursuit of waves and

competition.

At the halfway stage of the

season, here are the results and

destinations so far:

•Gisborne: A team of five,

consisting of Benji Lowen, Jack

Tyro, Ruby Armstrong, Holly

Campbell and Amelie Wink,

Steve’s Surf Report

went to the NZ primary school

surfing champs where the team

finished a credible fourth.

•Christchurch: Jack won the

year 7 and year 8 South Island

primary school championship

titles with Amelie Clark and

Tessa Langman making the finals

of the year 6 and under girls

event in their very first contest.

•Westport: We hit the trifecta

at the first South Island Grom

Series with Holly taking the win,

Amelie in second, and Ruby

third in the under-14 girls. Benji

also chimed in with third in the

under-12 boys.

•Taranaki: At the NZ surfing

nationals, Amelie Wink was

third in the women’s open SUP

surf division – not bad for a

13-year-old girl in the adults

division. We have great hopes

Amelie making the NZ team

in the near future. Also at the

nationals, PST alumni Manu

Schafer won the men’s over 40

event.

•Dunedin: In event two in

the South Island Grom Series,

Amelie, Jack and Benji were

second in there divisions.

•Mt Maunganui: In the

Billabong Grom Series, Jack

finished fifth (more than 40

competitors were in his age

group).

•Curio Bay: In event three of

the South Island Grom Series,

Holly and Amelie made the finals

and Ruby the semis.

Next weekend will see the

return of the Duke Festival of

Surfing to New Brighton. More

than 200 competitors from

around the country will be

competing. Sumner longboarders

and PST will both have a large

number of people entering. The

competition features both junior

shortboarding and open and age

group longboarding through to

over 60s. PST’s Luke O’Neil (2018

open longboard champ), Brittany

Andrews (2018 women’s logger

champ) and Jack Tyro (2018

under-12 champ) will be all hoping

to emulate last year’s winning

results at the festival.

If you are interested in joining

PST, come to a training at

Hardwicke St, Sumner, on a

Tuesday and at Taylors Mistake

on the weekends. We would also

like to point out it’s not all about

contests. For a lot of our junior

members, surfing with other kids

in their area on a regular basis is

where they get there surf stoke. \

Beautiful Beasts

Lisa Grennell

9 March - 3 April 2019

And then we fell in love with them...

The animals painted in this exhibition are from our

farm. Booboo, the Highland cow, being the main

subject, because of her sweet nature (and the fact

that she is my favourite). From my experience as

a beginner farmer and animal lover, I believe early

influence on both human and animal can be similarly profound. However I am a realist regarding

the consumption of animals. I don’t eat meat – so perhaps I have an unusual perspective.

Booboo, eerily painted in her majestic beauty, surrounded and almost

hidden by the reflective surface of the black mirror- like background, the

viewer too is captured in the reflective surface, a comment on human

impact on animals. This Plato quote comes to mind and challenges our

thoughts…

‘Is there something distinctive about humanity that tries to justify the

idea that humans deserve moral status, but non - humans do not?’ -

https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/moral-animal/

Within this body of work I’m celebrating the beauty within every

creature. Real moments captured are a reminder of an innocence

untainted by society. In contrast to the black paintings are some

pure white images of children, along with animals, and their

imaginary adventures. This emphasises the preciousness of

children and their innate connection with nature.

Ease of living, intelligent design and

impeccable taste are showcased at this

pristine three-bedroom home that captures

expansive hillside views and is just footsteps

from the waters edge.

Raised ceilings and polished concrete

floors are just a couple of the alluring features

to this eye-pleasing property which will have

immense appeal with those who appreciate

contemporary style.

The modern floor plan promotes

comfortable family living, and the home’s

exceptional position ensures it soaks up

plenty of sunshine while also escaping the

easterly.

Everyday living revolves around the

exquisite kitchen with butler’s pantry that

features stainless steel finishes and dark

cabinetry which contrast superbly against

the crisp white walls. The dining area and

both lounges all interact effortlessly, with the

casual living space enjoying a pull-out bar,

study nook and an extensive view across to

Redcliffs Park.

Numerous sliding doors off the living areas

introduce abundant natural light into the

home and provide a connection out to the

substantial kwila deck and low-maintenance

garden which ensures you can spend your

downtime with your feet up.

The single-level layout has been thoughtfully

arranged and places the master suite with

walk-in wardrobe and ensuite at one end of

the home while the remaining two bedrooms

share a light and bright family bathroom.

Warmth is assured courtesy of two heat

pumps, a gas fire, partial underfloor heating

and double glazing while further notable

features include surround sound, a vacuum

system and attic storage.

The location is equally as appealing with

a short stroll leading you to the coastal

pathway, the waterfront and Redcliffs Shops

and local amenities.

This is an easy care lock up and leave

property that offers outstanding levels

of comfort and defines the concept of

modern living. Our owners are downsizing,

have purchased and are selling with high

motivation. Resist delay - phone now.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

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,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

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

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

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 million, 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
