THE CRUISE ships in Akaroa

continue to polarise people in what

was once a fairly sleepy hollow.

Businesses sort of like them. The

thousands who pour in during the

season spend before and after heading

to Christchurch. So that helps. But for many residents,

there’s simply too many cruise ship passengers.

The cruise ship debate has led to meetings and

petitions. Now temporary toilets installed by the city

council at Britomart Reserve (see page 1) could end up

in legal action.

An apartment block overlooks the reserve. Their once

nice view out to the harbour is punctuated by the toilets

and everything that goes on there. A lawyer is now

involved and the city council appears to be in a corner.

‘Warrant of fitness’ issue for tug

TUG LYTTELTON will not

The society is now struggling

years.

extreme pressure. We are going

for some grants, some of the

we have just got a bill for our

But the setback has not

COLLETT’S CORNER GOAL

Lyttelton’s Collett’s Corner

development has reached its

minimum goal of $300,000

through an online crowd-funding

campaign. The project aims to

raise a maximum of $2 million to

progress through to the design,

consent and construction stages.

The top two floors of the planned

building would be apartments

and the rest of it would operate

under shared ownership.

SUMNER MASTERPLAN

The work set out in the Sumner

Village masterplan will start on

Monday. Sections of wastewater,

stormwater and water pipes will

be replaced, while new kerbs,

footpaths, street furniture

and road surfaces will also be

installed. There will be water

shutdowns, detours and road

closures during the work.

Affected residents will be notified

and the work is estimated to take

six months.

BURST WATER MAINS

A city council investigation has

revealed the four water mains

which burst within 48 hours in

Diamond Harbour last month

was due to a fault with a pressure

reducing valve. The faulty valve

is believed to have increased the

pressure of the mains causing the

failures.

Toilets anger apartment owners

•From page 1

Said Ms Steven:

“Without going through

the process of gaining a

resource consent, the city

council has bypassed the

hearing process which

gives interested parties an

opportunity to speak

in support or opposition

of what is being proposed.”

A Bruce Apartment

Body Corporate

spokesman told Bay

Harbour News it was an

absolute disgrace it was not

consulted before the toilets

were put there.

“City council contractors

have been filmed pumping

out these ugly toilets at

daybreak, causing loud

noise and distress to our

owners and guests, many of

whom are paying over $300

per night for the privilege

of being caught up in this

circus,” he said.

Deputy Mayor and

Banks Peninsula city

councillor Andrew Turner

believed the failure to seek

a resource consent was an

oversight from city council

staff.

“There has been a

degree of embarrassment

around the fact that

consent was not applied

for when it should have

been. City council has a

duty to lead by example in

these situations,” he said

yesterday.

Cr Turner understood

the city council was

seeking a retrospective

resource consent.

“My understanding

from council staff is that

retrospective consent

will be applied for

and obviously future

consenting requirements

will be met.”

Akaroa Civic Trust

chairman Mike Norris

said the toilets were an

eyesore.

“It just contributes to the

overall tackiness that we

are trying to combat,” he

said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Outrage after rocket launch causes fire

• By Louis Day

A ROCKET launch by

Canterbury University which

caused a fire on Kaitorete

Spit has left nearby residents

outraged.

Little River Wairewa

Community Trust chairman

Robert Burch labelled the rocket

launch a “silly thing to do.”

“Why are they launching a

rocket when we have a total fire

ban?” he said.

Canterbury University group,

UC Aerospace, was attempting

to become the first student group

in the world to launch a rocket

into space last Sunday morning.

The university said the attempt

was not successful but is saying

little more about the project.

“This is a story that hasn’t

been in the media because they

didn’t get out of the earth’s

atmosphere,” a spokeswoman

said.

But Bay Harbour News

inquiries reveal the rocket was

launched from Kaitorete Spit,

which protects Lake Ellesmere

from the sea, about 10am.

The rocket, which was planned

to crash back into the sea,

landed in a paddock, causing a

fire which destroyed vegetation,

Little River Volunteer Fire

Brigade acting station officer

Matt Ledgerwood said.

When firefighters arrived,

students involved with the

project had put the fire out.

“With a bit of bad luck, it could

have been a lot worse. Luckily

the grass was quite short and

there was no wind,” he said.

Sue Morrow, who lives at

nearby Birdlings Flat, rushed

towards the fire after being

alerted of smoke coming from

Kaitorete Spit on the Birdlings

Flat Community Residents

Facebook Page.

“It’s bloody stupid doing that

at this time of year when it is

tinder dry,” she said.

The fire had been put out by

the time she got there.

Fire and Emergency NZ

deputy principal rural fire officer

Al Hutt shared the concerns of

nearby residents.

“This has not been handled

particularly well by the

university. My view is that the

timing was probably wrong,

middle of winter and it would

not have been a problem,” he

said.

The university spokeswoman

said the group had all the

appropriate permissions from

various agencies, including the

Civil Aviation Authority and NZ

Space Agency, as well as various

controls in place to prevent harm

in a range of eventualities.

Kaitorete Spit is home to

several rare insects, reptiles

and birds and is of significant

cultural value to Ngāi Tahu

due to the more than 500

archaeological sites found there.

The Canterbury University

launch was part of the

international race to become the

first university group to blast

a rocket beyond the Karman

line. The line is 100km above

the earth’s surface and is widely

recognised as the boundary to

outer space.

RISKY: A rocket launch by

a group from Canterbury

University, which caused a

fire at the tinder dry Kaitorete

Spit, has outraged nearby

residents.

The University of Southern

California’s rocket propulsion

laboratory set the highest

altitude reached by a university

group in March 2017 with 44km.

Environment Canterbury is considering its 2019-20

Annual Plan.

While the plan largely aligns with the most recent

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

policy and our revenue and financing policy are being

considered. Increased funding of public transport to

match funding from NZTA and increased funding in water

management, pest control and biodiversity are also being

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

These will impact on some ratepayers, depending on

their location, when the 2019-20 Regional Council

rate is confirmed.

WELL-KNOWN Sumner

identity Nancy Meherne came

away with one of the top prizes at

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Edible Garden Awards.

The Sumner resident of 63

years won the best yield prize

alongside Claire Taylor and

also received a certificate in the

residential house category, with

judges commending her garden’s

plant health and overall quality.

Mrs Meherne, 89, said she

would be out in her garden as

late as 10pm some nights.

“I always go in for the news

and then go back out again. I can

get my whole meal in my garden

– I don’t need to go to the shops,”

she said.

When Mrs Meherne is not

tending to her potatoes, carrots,

parsnips, spinach, silverbeet,

peppers, capsicums, cucumbers,

zucchinis, pumpkins, radishes or

lettuce, she is catching waves at

Sumner beach.

“I don’t know how to stand up

but I know how to catch a wave.

I can go in further than most

people.”

Mrs Meherne said she fell in

love with Sumner and its beach

the moment she laid eyes on it.

“When I first moved to

Christchurch I did not know

anyone, so one day I caught the

tram to Sumner and it was the

most wonderful place, the sight

of the beach was breathtaking

and still is.”

Mrs Meherne taught music at

Sumner School for many years

and continued to give lessons

at the school following her

retirement up until recently.

Mrs Meherne now teaches

piano to pupils out of her home.

Her dedication to teaching

music led to the school’s music

room being named after her.

Sumner School music teacher

Robyn Lean, who was taught by

Mrs Meherne in the 1980s, said

she put her life and soul into

teaching music.

“She is just a really

extraordinary person, she has

been very passionate and good at

instilling that same passion on to

her students. You just really felt

like you were part of her family

as a student,” she said.

SPEED LIMITS on Summit

The city council is proposing

to reduce the speed limit

on Summit Rd, from Godley

Head to Gebbies Pass Rd,

from 100km/h and 70km/h to

60km/h.

Also included in the Summit

Rd speed limit review are five

The speed limit review is now

open for public consultation.

A final decision about this

proposal will be made by city

council following recommendations

from a hearings panel in

May.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said they were reviewing speed

limits based on guidance from

the New Zealand Traffic Association.

“Speed determines both the

likelihood of a crash occurring

and the severity of the outcome,”

he said.

Mr Thomas encouraged the

the proposal.

A CAT in Sumner has stolen

basket loads of clothes, building

equipment and toys over the past

few months.

Eighteen-month-old Roddy

has had an appetite for stealing

newspapers and magazines since

he was a kitten but has recently

turned his attention toward

clothes, building equipment and

toys.

Roddy’s owners are now calling

for people in the area who have

had items gone missing recently

to see if they were stolen by him.

Owner Sara Buerki said they

have baskets full of stolen goods.

“One time Dad was just out in

the garden and Roddy came up to

him with a T-shirt and dropped

it at his feet and ran away, so Dad

followed him and Roddy was in

the neighbours’ car and he was

taking clothing out of their car,”

of the items

Roddy (below)

has taken.

Roddy’s hefty haul

said Ms Buerki.

A basket of stolen items has

been left outside their house on

Campbell St.

Ms Buerki posted on the Sumner

Community Facebook page

on Thursday to see if anyone recognised

some of the items which

Roddy had stolen.

Since then four people have

suggestion for guests anyway.

I was a little concerned over

how Vittoria would behave on

a camping trip, she’s so full on

now and needs to be running

around at full speed for most of

each day.

And this camping trip would

follow yet another long drive.

Definite tantrum danger zone.

We arrived mid-afternoon, the

sun was shining and the whānau

was busy setting things up for

the ceremony.

As with any family event,

there were young cousins about

and Vittoria immediately took a

shine to sisters Lizzie and Anna

(a different one). And thankfully

they took a shine to Vittoria too.

•Former Bay Harbour News journalist Matt Salmons has

become a stay-at-home dad. We follow his journey weekly.

Sound sleep at campsite

Can you say parenting support

team?

I’m pretty glad Vittoria won’t

remember me setting up our

tent, I got there, but it probably

didn’t make me look like any

sort of outdoors-man.

So with a ready tent and a

cousin support team on standby,

we were set for the wedding.

Vittoria was so good during

the ceremony, allowing us to

enjoy seeing Anna and Lui

finally tie the knot. They’re a

great couple, loving, respectful

and quirky in pretty similar

ways.

After playing for hours,

eating her dinner, my dinner

and trying for a sip of my beer,

VITTORIA

& Matt

CAMPSITE:

Vittoria looking

to sneak in some

early driving

lessons while

daddy gets busy

on the tent.

wee bubs finally fell asleep in

her pram. Then woke up during

speeches. Then again during the

fireworks.

So we finished our time at

the party with Laura coiled in

a porta-cot with Vittoria while

I organised a ride back to our

campsite, about a pitch black

400m away (read – had a couple

more with some of the cousins).

We all slept reasonably well

once we arrived at the tent – Vittoria

and I fell into a deep sleep

as soon as we hit the mattress

– and we’ve been left with plenty

of confidence that we could do

it again.

We may need to bring some

cousins along though.

Hammond has secured a

$258,782 grant.

Kilwinning Lodge

on Canterbury St dates

from 1881 but was badly

damaged in the 2011

earthquake and has been

empty since then.

Structural engineering

company Structex bought

the lodge in 2015 and

asked the city council

for a heritage incentive

grant towards the cost of

repairing, strengthening,

and renovating the

building so it could be used

as an office upstairs with

leased commercial space on

the ground floor.

The social community

development and housing

committee approved the

grant of $258,782 for the

lodge last Wednesday.

The grant is split into

$158,782 this financial year

and $100,000 in the next

financial year.

Committee chair city

councillor Phil Clearwater

said the building was an

important local landmark.

“The grant will protect

a unique and significant

building in an area where

so many heritage buildings

have been lost following the

earthquakes,” he said.

The cost of heritagerelated

work is estimated

to be more than $1.2

million, with the

heritage incentive grant

contributing to about 20

per cent of the total cost.

Support grows for ship

levy to support seafarers

A PETITION calling for a levy to support

the welfare of seafarers has received more

than 150 signatures.

The petition was started by newlyappointed

Banks Peninsula Community

Board deputy chairman Tyrone

Fields.

The intent of the petition is to

“build a large register of local

support asking that the NZ

Government levy ships docking in

NZ ports to fund seafarer welfare

centres, as suggested by the

Maritime Labour Convention.”

Mr Fields has been doorknocking

and circulating the

petition throughout shops in an

attempt to raise awareness.

“It is amazing about how many people

do not know about it,” he said.

Last week, Maritime NZ stopped a

Taiwanese bulk-carrier in Lyttelton

Tyrone Fields

Harbour, which was on its way to Panama,

after it was revealed the crew members

were not being paid properly.

The bulk-carrier was not allowed to leave

Lyttelton until the operator paid the crew

four months wages.

Lyttelton Seafarers

Centre Charitable Trust

chairman John McLister said

seafarers’ centres across the

country are in desperate need of

funding. “If we rely, as we have in

the past, on having sausage sizzles,

we won’t be able to provide the

service these seafarers need,” said

Rev McLister.

The centre has had more than

10,000 visits from seafarers since it

opened almost four years ago.

It provides them with assistance,

amenities, care, support and wi-fi so they

can call their families back home.

House of Travel Ferrymead

because we’re cruisers too.

Mel Hubber Kim Beswick Melissa May

Owner Operator Owner Operator Travel Specialist

Exploring by sea is one of the greatest forms of travel I

have experienced. I have sailed from France around

Corsica and the Greek islands on a 130 foot luxury

yacht which gave me a great insight to some of the most

beautiful ports and marinas in the world. River cruising

is also a favourite and I have cruised the Rhine with

Uniworld as well as the Christmas markets from Prague

to Vienna with Avalon waterways. I also explored the

beautiful islands of Croatia with Katarina Lines.

Having worked on cruise ships for 8 years my first hand

cruise experience & knowledge is extensive. I have

literally cruised to all oceans and continents around the

world, on large, medium and small sized ships. Favourite

cruise destinations for me are the Caribbean, Norwegian

Fjords, Mediterranean and Antarctica. Recently I have

also experienced a river cruise on the Rhine with Avalon

Waterways & am looking forward to returning to Alaska

this year and revisiting my first ever cruise region.

Cruising is one of my favourite ways to holiday as it allows

you to do as much or as little as you like and getting the

variety of visiting a range of destinations without the

hassle of changing hotels and catching flights. I have been

lucky enough to cruise on a few different cruise lines to a

few different destinations, however one of my favourites

is cruising in the South Pacific. You can board the ship in

Auckland or Australia and get to visit some untouched

tropical Islands that you may not normally be able to get to.

I love cruising! I’ve been fortunate enough to go on a

few cruises, including a P&O one up the East Coast of

Australia and one around the Greek Islands and Turkey.

However, my favourite trip onboard a boat was a Sail

Croatia trip. This was great way to travel! I really liked

that you only had to unpack once, got to swim and relax

during the day, and at night you could go and explore

one of the various islands. I have a huge passion for

travel and love exploring new destinations.

I was lucky enough to sail the seven seas as a working

crew member on board various size ships around the

world for 5 years, to then be a guest onboard a Turkish

Gulet sail trip along the Turquoise Coast to most recently

an ocean cruise travelling solo in the Caribbean. Cruising

offers something for everyone and now I get to inspire

people to choose the right Cruise for them. To me travel is

addictive, it’s an awe inspiring journey of discovery which

fuels the soul & makes you richer.

Cruising is a fantastic way to see the world! I love

both the small ship experience, on board a yacht

round the coast line of Croatia, as well as the bigger

ship I was fortunate enough to enjoy up in the

Baltics. Nothing beats unpacking once and arriving at

a new destination each morning, relaxed and ready

to explore. Travel is my passion & I love helping

clients create an unforgettable experience that is

uniquely their own!

Wellbeing & Beauty

Treat the whole person -

not just the damaged part!

HOLISTIC MASSAGE... a healing

treatment that combines deep relaxation

methods with deep tissue massage.

“Holistic Massage Therapy helps you

to reconnect with your body so that your

muscles can respond better to treatment,”

said Renée Daniell, therapist and owner of

Prana Massage Therapy.

Based in Sumner, Renée has lived in

the community for 20 years where she

has been practising holistic massage for

the past four years. Located in a private,

tranquil garden setting her studio is

tastefully arranged, and has a soothingly

relaxing atmosphere.

Prior to this, the mother of three lived

in Keri Keri and studied in Christchurch.

Her credentials include a Diploma in

Aromatherapy, a level 5 Certificate of

Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage

Techniques, and a NASDA Diploma in

Performance Art (Singing and Dramatic).

Her background also includes six years

of classical singing and ballet, which gave

her some great knowledge of breathing

techniques, posture and movement.

“I’ve accumulated a thorough body

awareness through years of singing, dance

and movement training,” said Renée.

“This includes breathing techniques for

singing and voice, postural awareness

through Tai chi, Iyengar Yoga and the

Alexander Technique. My training at

the College of Natural Medicine also

included Aromatherapy skills, Reflexology,

body awareness, breathing and postural

analysis.”

‘Prana Massage Therapy’ offers holistic

massage therapy that aims to treat the

whole person rather than a damaged part

and relaxation techniques that can be

combined with deep-tissue techniques.

“The nervous system responds to an

induced state of relaxation by entering the

‘resting and digesting’ phase and releasing

endogenous endorphins, thus allowing the

body’s self-healing mechanisms to work

for us.”

Natural elements, crystals, music,

plants, essential oils, and quality skin care

products are all ingredients that come

together to create a peaceful, meditative

energy. Prana Massage Therapy stocks

Arohanui Botanicals, a handmade organic

skincare range made in Golden Bay with

NZ native therapeutic herbs (Rongoa) and

active botanicals.

Amelia rides

to gold at

NZ track

cycling

champs

SUMNER’S AMELIA Sykes

brought home four medals from

the New Zealand track cycling

championships held over four

days in Cambridge.

The 14-year-old represented

Canterbury and secured gold in

the team sprint and 3000m team

pursuit, and silver in the 500m

time trial and match sprint.

Amelia and her teammate,

Jenna Borthwick, paired up in

the team sprint, setting a new

national record of 36.947sec in

qualifying, then going on to win

the event.

It was Amelia’s first time

competing at under-17 level. She

also finished fifth in the 2000m

pursuit.

Amelia’s coach sets her

programme each week and

records her performance data

which aims to build on her

strength.

Amelia’s father, Julian Sykes,

first introduced her to track

cycling when she was 12.

Previously Amelia was a

champion ice speed skater at

the age of 10. Her dream is to

compete at the 2024 Olympic

Games.

Sumner surfers up for Duke festival

New Brighton

Pier Promotion

Society’s

Warren Hawke

is anticipating a

strong showing

from Sumner

surfers at the Ray White

New Brighton Duke Festival

of Surfing this week

THE SUMNER surfing

community is expected to have

a big impact on the Ray White

New Brighton Duke Festival of

Surfing contest from Friday to

Sunday beside the New Brighton

Pier.

The festival, which includes

the largest surfing competition

in New Zealand, has special

interest this year because the

open longboarder is one of the

selection contests for the New

Zealand team to compete in

France.

On Friday, the age group

shortboard surfing begins with

the under-12, under-14, under-17

and under-20 titles all being

chased by high seeds, such as

Estella Hungerford and Ava

Henderson, who is currently

ranked No 1 in New Zealand in

her age group.

Among other young Sumner

surfers will be Jack Tyro who won

the under-12 boys event last year

and will compete in the under-14

and under-16 boys this year.

Holly Campbell, Amelie Wink

and Caspar McCormick are all

expected to make finals and

could win against young surfers

from all over New Zealand.

The shortboard competition

will start early on Friday

morning next to the pier in

the quest for a much-coveted

Duke Trophy, along with an

accompanying prize pack.

On Saturday morning, the

longboard competitions will

begin and Sumner surfers are

expected to provide finalists in

nearly every division.

Luke O’Neil has won several

premier events in the past,

while Donna Henderson in the

women’s longboard and Lucy

Temoananui Women’s in the

SUP are all expected to make

finals again.

Sumner is so rich in top

longboarders that it could quite

easily have finalists in every

section.

Other Sumner longboarders

who could do well include Steve

Tyro, Grant Cochrane, Steve

and Mark Andrews and Tim

Clemence.

SPORT

IN FORM: Jack Tyro will

compete at under-14 and

16 level after winning the

under-12 event last year.

PHOTOS: WARREN HAWKE

ONE TO WATCH: Luke O’Neill

has won several premier

events in the past.

The festival comes to a close

on Sunday with the prize giving

from 6pm at The New Brighton

Club.

About 60 trophies will be

awarded in 20 different divisions.

With The Duke being the

biggest surfing event held in

New Zealand last year, interest

in the upcoming event has been

overwhelming.

The Lost Girls of Paris

by Pam Jenoff

From the author of the runaway bestseller The Orphan’s Tale comes a remarkable story

of friendship and courage centred around three women and a ring of female secret

agents during World War II.

1946, Manhattan

One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to

work, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench.

Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she

discovers a dozen photographs-each of a different woman. In a moment of

impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.

Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg,

leader of a network of female secret agents who were deployed out of London

during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers

and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned home, their fates

a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photographs, Grace

finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission

overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valour and betrayal.

Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, New York Times bestselling author Pam

Jenoff shines a light on the incredible heroics of the brave women of the war and weaves

a mesmerising tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in

the hardest of circumstances.

The Chocolate Maker’s Wife

by Karen Brooks

Australian author Karen Brooks rewrites women back into history with this sweeping,

breathtakingly researched tale of 17th century London. Set against the backdrop of

Restoration London, the plague and the Great Fire, this is a tale of cruelty, revenge,

redemption, love and hope, and the sweet, sinister temptation of chocolate.

Damnation has never been so sweet...When Rosamund Tomkins enters the world

she is so different, with her darkling eyes and strange laughter, that the midwives

are afraid, believing her a changeling. But Rosamund’s life is set to be anything but

enchanted...

Born into poverty, brutalised and ignored by her family, it is only when she is

married off to a nobleman that her life undergoes a wondrous transformation, as he

recognises that Rosamund infuses magic she does not know she possesses into

everything she touches.

Clever, quick and irrepressible, Rosamund soon becomes the darling of the haute

ton, and presides over her luxurious chocolate house where the rich go to be seen

and indulge in their favourite pastime, drinking the sweet and heady drink to which

they’ve become oddly addicted.

But Rosamund stands on the brink of losing all she has worked so hard to achieve

and will be forced to make a choice: walk away from all she knows and has grown

to love with her soul intact, or make a deal with the devil?

The Hunt for MH370

The mystery. The cover-up. The Truth

By ean Higgins

Somewhere out in the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean, in

the underwater canyons of Broken Ridge near the alien sub-terrain

known as the Seventh Arc lies the answer to the world’s greatest

aviation mystery.

Why, on the night of 8 March 2014, did Malaysia Flight MH370

suddenly U-turn on the trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, zig-zag

over Malaysia and up the Straits of Malacca, then disappear in the

middle of nowhere without a word from anyone on board?

Was it an elaborate murder-suicide by a rogue pilot? A terrible

accident as a result of an on-board fire, rapid decompression or

systems failure? A terrorist hijacking gone wrong? Was the flight

captured by North Korean spies? Or even, as a few extremists

believe, the victim of extra-terrestrial intervention? Journalist for The Australian Ean Higgins has led

the world’s coverage of the MH370 saga, one of the 21st century’s most baffling, enduring and

controversial mysteries. Ean’s book draws on five years of interviews with aviation experts, victim

families, air-crash investigators and air and ocean hunters, and takes us inside the saga like never

before, written up close, on the inside, and from the major player’s perspectives.

Untitled By Anna Pasternak

Who was the real Wallis: an opportunistic American social climber,

a master manipulator or the true love of Edward’s life? Amid the

cacophony of condemnation her story has become obfuscated.

Untitled is an intimate biography of one of the most misunderstood

women in British royal history. His charisma and glamour ensured

him the status of a rock star prince. Yet Edward gave up the British

throne, the British Empire and his position as Emperor of India, to

marry his true love, American divorcee Wallis Simpson. So much

gossip and innuendo has been levelled at Wallis Simpson that it

has become nearly impossible to discern the real woman. Many

have wondered why, when Edward could have had anyone he

desired, he was smitten with this unusual American woman. As

her friend Herman Rogers said to her in 1936 when news of her

affair with Edward broke: ‘Much of what is being said concerns a

woman who does not exist and never did exist.’ History is mostly

perceived from the perspective of his-story.

Keepers of History

New Zealand Centenarians tell their stories.

By renee Hollis

From the everyday to the extraordinary, these are the stories of New

Zealand centenarians who have lived through history. In 2017,

Renee Hollis interviewed 120 people over the age of 100, living in

every region of New Zealand. Along the way, she had the privilege

of interviewing 23 World War II veterans. Her goal in compiling the

book was to preserve New Zealand history by sharing the stories and

memories of our eldest citizens. She wants all people to value the

elderly and to read and appreciate their stories and contribution to

our society. Most importantly, she wants to ensure that that they are not forgotten and do not become

invisible in our communities, but instead are honoured and celebrated. In this collection of interviews,

we meet opera singers and farmers, a politician and a racing car driver, a nun and a freedom fighter

with Gandhi, and even a member of Hip Operation - the oldest hip-hop group in the world! They have

witnessed momentous global events and technological innovations that have changed our world.

Mutiny on the Bounty

by Peter Fitzsimons

The mutiny on HMS Bounty, in the South Pacific on 28 April 1789,

is one of history’s truly great stories - a tale of human drama,

intrigue and adventure of the highest order - and in the hands of

Peter FitzSimons it comes to life as never before. Commissioned

by the Royal Navy to collect breadfruit plants from Tahiti and take

them to the West Indies, the Bounty’s crew found themselves in

a tropical paradise. Five months later, they did not want to leave.

Under the leadership of Fletcher Christian most of the crew mutinied

soon after sailing from Tahiti, setting Captain William Bligh and

18 loyal crewmen adrift in a small open boat. In one of history’s

great feats of seamanship, Bligh navigated this tiny vessel for 3618

nautical miles to Timor. Fletcher Christian and the mutineers sailed

back to Tahiti, where most remained and were later tried for mutiny.

But Christian, along with eight fellow mutineers and some Tahitian

men and women, sailed off into the unknown, eventually discovering the isolated Pitcairn Island - at

the time not even marked on British maps - and settling there. This astonishing story is historical

adventure at its very best,encompassing the mutiny, Bligh’s monumental achievement in navigating to

safety, and Fletcher Christian and the mutineers’ own epic journey from the sensual paradise of Tahiti

to the outpost of Pitcairn Island.

Considerably sized and displaying modern

finishes this impeccably styled home rises

above the rest and offers unparalleled views

from the highest position in Morgans Valley.

The sizeable 2717m 2 site and its favourable

microclimate location deliver outstanding

peace and serenity with the exceptional

outlook stretching from the hillside across to

the city and out to the Southern Alps.

Drawing on the contemporary aesthetic

of the exterior, the interior of the home is

streamlined and modern, with an exquisite

kitchen and expansive open plan living area

found at its heart.

Granite benchtops, an entertainer’s oven and

a breakfast bar ensure the kitchen is equally

practical and eye-pleasing while a second

lounge provides an alternative living area and

contributes great flexibility for families.

Tremendous gallery windows drench

the home in natural light and capture the

captivating vista, and when the sun is shining,

you can soak up this scene and the sunshine

from the balcony or private outdoor setting.

Arranged over three floors and hosting a

total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the

upper level is naturally devoted to the master

suite which features a walk-in wardrobe and

ensuite.

Also forming part of the floor plan is a

separate laundry, an internal access garage

with storage and two heat pumps which offer

comfort and convenience.

Situated in the calming environment of

Heathcote Valley by Heathcote Valley school,

it’s an easy drive from Lyttelton Port and

various coastal suburbs, and the CBD is less

than 20 minutes’ drive away. This property

also provides a large back section which is

a blank canvas for growing fruit trees or for

those garden lovers wishing to potter away.

The vendors are firmly committed to selling,

and their immaculately presented home is

destined for a change of ownership.
