‘Thanks’ for one of Friday’s heroes

FLOWERS AND messages of

support have been left outside

the Redcliffs shop of a man who

tried to stop alleged gunman

Brenton Tarrant on Friday.

Abdul Aziz, who owns

A-antiques new and secondhand

goods and furniture

on Main Rd, confronted the

gunman when he started

shooting people at the Linwood

mosque.

Mr Aziz hurled an eftpos

machine at the gunman.

The gunman then fled but

returned and fired at Mr Aziz.

Mr Aziz said he ran, weaving

through cars parked in the

driveway, which prevented the

gunman from getting a clean

shot.

Mr Aziz spotted a gun he had

abandoned and picked it up and

squeezed the trigger – but it was

empty. The gunman ran back to

the car for a second time.

“He gets into his car and I

just got the gun and threw it on

his window like an arrow and

blasted his window,” Mr Aziz

said.

rocket

sparks

criticism

from

fire chief

• By Louis Day

ONE OF the region’s top fire

chiefs has joined the criticism

over Canterbury University’s

rocket launch which led to a

grass fire on tinder dry Banks

Peninsula.

Deputy principal rural fire

officer Al Hutt said the launch

was not handled well.

“The picture we were painted

by the aerospace people (at the

university) was that there was

zero risk of this happening and

I did even ask them what would

happen if it crashed on the spit

and they assured me it wouldn’t

but it clearly did,” he said

yesterday.

Mr Hutt also questioned the

timing of the launch during

a total fire ban season, which

remains in place.

Last week Bay Harbour News

revealed Canterbury University’s

UC Aerospace had attempted to

become the first student group in

the world to launch a rocket into

space.

THOUSANDS OF people will be

pounding the pavements and roads at the

annual City2Surf on Sunday.

It’s Christchurch’s iconic event, which

The Star has put on for decades.

This year it will be the 45th time the event has been held. It

used to go from the Square out to

QE II, but a certain event on February 22, 2011, changed all of

that. It now goes from Centennial Park and Hansen Park to

Ferrymead.

Each year there is a buzz as thousands gather in the parks

for the challenge that lies ahead – whether it be going as fast

as you can, or simply completing the journey for personal

satisfaction.

On page 12 today, we talk to some of the people taking part.

Bitcoin ice cream store closes

In Brief

• By Louis Day

AFTER TWO years in business,

a young Sumner entrepreneur’s

ice cream enterprise has come to

an end.

Charlie Kavanagh opened

Charlato when he was 18. His ice

cream store, which was closed

last Wednesday, became the first

in the country to accept Bitcoin

as a form of payment.

Mr Kavanagh said 10 to 15

people paid using Bitcoin during

the two years the store was

open.

“It was definitely worth doing,

a lot of people would see the

poster and have a bit of a laugh.”

Bitcoin is a digital currency,

which exists only online, and is

one of more than a thousand

“cryptocurrencies.”

It has come with harsh

warnings from investors

and traders worldwide for its

volatility and lack of regulation.

However, Mr Kavanagh said

the precarious nature of the

cryptocurrency did not have

a significant impact on his

business.

“I only had $50 invested in it

so it didn’t really affect me.”

Mr Kavanagh worked for the

previous owners of the gelato

container and decided to take

over when they closed.

“I was just hanging out with a

him, yelling that he was

going to kill them all. But

he drove away and Mr

Tarrant killed seven

Mr Aziz a vehicle.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Catch-22 for Black Cat

Rocket launch

• By Louis Day

BLACK CAT Cruises is in a

catch-22 situation over the

ongoing saga of its disability

ramps on Akaroa wharf.

In July last year, the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

gave Black Cat Cruises three

months to remove all nonconsented

structures, such as

disability access ramps, seating,

signage and canopies.

But the two ramps remain in

place nearly five months after

they were meant to be removed.

Black Cat Cruises chief

executive Paul Milligan told

the Banks Peninsula

Community Board at its

meeting on Monday that if the

ramps were removed the Black

Cat Cruises’ building would

become non-compliant.

“We are not asking the

council or community board to

bend the rules here. If we could

get rid of the ramps, we would,”

he said.

The community board has

also received advice from city

council staff, saying if the ramps

were removed the building

would become non-compliant

and may be closed down.

However, Akaroa Fishermen’s

Association head John Wright

said the group wants to see the

HON AMY ADAMS

MP FOR SELWYN

ONGOING: The unconsented disability ramps at Black Cat

Cruises continue to be debated.

ramps removed.

“We are definitely sticking

by our guns. We require the

unconsented structures to be

removed,” he said.

Mr Wright previously told Bay

Harbour News the combination

of the disability ramp and

crowds of tourists from cruise

ships were a real issue.

“There are some days where

it is impossible to get a chiller

truck on to the wharf to unload

our fishing vessels. If it’s a hot

day and we’ve got fish on the

deck, it spoils in the hot sun.”

The community board

requested city council staff to

continue to negotiate changes

to access structures on the

wharf and that any structures

which could not be removed

at present be addressed in the

redevelopment of the wharf.

draws criticism

•From page 1

The launch was made from

remote Kaitorete Spit near

Birdlings Flat on March 3.

The rocket did not get out of

the Earth’s atmosphere and came

back down on the spit, causing

a fire. It was supposed to have

crashed into the sea. The fire was

put out by the students involved

in the project before the Little

River Volunteer Fire Brigade

arrived.

Said Little River Volunteer Fire

Brigade acting station officer

Matt Ledgerwood: “With a bit of

bad luck it could have been a lot

worse, luckily the grass was quite

short and there was no wind.”

Rocket launches do not require

a fire permit.

But Fire and Emergency NZ

has the legal ability to prohibit

or restrict activities in certain

circumstances.

Mr Hutt said they would be

taking a harder line with any

future rocket launches.

“In this particular activity, we

have a bit of case history where it

has gone wrong, whereas before

we had nothing. So it would

have been difficult to impose

restrictions on people but now, if

they came back, I would be able

to say last time this happened

so I am going to impose some

restrictions.”

Canterbury University said last

week there were no current plans

for more launches in the area.

The launch was also criticised

by nearby residents.

Little River Wairewa

Community Trust chairman

Robert Burch labelled the rocket

launch as a “silly thing to do.”

“Why are they launching a

rocket when we have a total fire

ban?” he said.

Birdlings Flat resident Sue

Morrow also had concerns.

“It’s bloody stupid doing that at

this time of year when it is tinder

dry,” she said.

The rocket launch was part of

the international race to become

the first university group to blast

a rocket beyond the Karman line.

The Karman line is 100km

above the earth’s surface and

is widely recognised as the

boundary to outer space.

The University of Southern

California’s rocket propulsion

laboratory set the highest altitude

reached by a university group in

March 2017 with 44km.

Targeted rate plan to rid

Banks Peninsula of pests

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN 20,000

households across Banks

Peninsula may have to

pay a targeted rate for pest

control.

Environment

Canterbury’s proposed

Pest-Free Banks Peninsula

strategy would affect

21,276 rateable properties

on the peninsula.

Public consultation on

the proposal has closed

and it will go to a hearings

panel next month before

the plan is finalised.

Different properties

would pay different rates,

depending on their size

and value.

“It would be based 80

per cent on land value, and

20 per cent on land area.

The targeted rate formula

would be approximately

$5 per $100,000 land value

plus $0.65 per hectare of

land,” said Maree Willetts,

ECan team leader of strategy,

planning, biodiversity

and biosecurity.

Ms Willetts said the

project would focus on

eradicating feral goats and

controlling pests, such as

TARGETS: Environment Canterbury is planning a

targeted rate to help eradicate all pests on Banks

Peninsula by 2050.

Examples of the annual cost for the

proposed targeted rate:

value: $22.85.

•1000m² property in Lyttelton, $240,000 land

The project aims to help

meet the goal of a pest-free

“The removal of pest

Peninsula will ensure

indigenous species become

more abundant and

widespread across the

peninsula and into the

city,” she said.

Lyttelton church garden comes to life

• By Louis Day

ELIZABETH Barrie was

heartbroken when she saw the

state of the garden at Lyttelton’s

St Saviours at Holy Trinity

church.

“The weeds were taller than

the rose bushes,” she said.

Since then, Mrs Barrie has

been on a mission to restore the

garden to its former glory.

After commuting from her

home in Redcliffs three to

five times a week for the last

five months, Mrs Barrie has

achieved this. She has weeded

the garden, planted roses,

petunias, cosmos, cornflower,

portulaca hydrangea and a

lemon tree.

Mrs Barrie, who grew up in

Lyttelton, was baptised and

married at the Holy Trinity

Church, which was on the

site until it was demolished

following the earthquakes.

“When I was a child and

I used to go, there was this

lemon tree under the corner of

the garden, so the other day I

planted a little lemon tree.”

However, Mrs Barrie said

there was still work to be

done.

“It is an ongoing issue really,

it is a beautiful spot, it is a

community thing, it is so much

more than just a church.”

The priest of the Parish

of Lyttelton Reverend John

McLister commended Mrs

Barrie’s efforts.

“We are very grateful for

what she has done, we have had

people come in for weddings

and funerals who have been

very appreciative of her work,”

he said. St Saviours Church was

moved onto the Winchester

St site after the Holy Trinity

Church was demolished.

Rev McLister said the garden

had been restored to its former

glory but there was still work

to be done on the rest of the

grounds. “The grounds are

still badly damaged, the stone

masonry is badly damaged and

it is a work in progress. It will

take years to restore it back

to where it used to be and a

considerable financial cost.”

City council

applies for

NZTA funding

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council is applying

for funding for a section of the

Coastal Pathway.

The section between Shag Rock

and Sumner Surf Life Saving Surf

Club is estimated to cost about $6

million.

City council planning and delivery

transport manager Lynette Ellis

said this section of the Coastal

Pathway would be completed to

schedule even if the New Zealand

Transport Agency did not grant

the funding.

“NZTA subsidise between 50

and 75 per cent of eligible parts

of projects. Construction on this

section of the pathway is already

underway,” she said.

Landscaping and lighting

improvements are also part of the

project expected to be completed

by mid-October.

Ms Ellis said the entire project

when completed would provide a

multi-functional pathway to benefit

the community and visitors.

“The asphalt path will run

between Shag Rock and Gollans

Point, and will then transition to

a boardwalk along the front of the

car park and the Sumner Surf Lifesaving

Club where it connects with

the existing memorial walkway.”

Trust has been protecting the

town’s beauty, history and

character.

In 1999, Heritage New Zealand

registered Akaroa as a historic

area. Mass tourism now poses

threats to Akaroa, and the civic

trust’s aims to prevent damage

to Akaroa’s fragile character and

ensure the long-term well-being

of the community.

It is hard to appreciate Akaroa

when its streets are clogged with

buses and visitors shuffling past

street stalls. The longer-term

impacts include the loss and

privatisation of open public

spaces and reserves.

Infrastructure developments

to cope with huge daily spikes

CONFLICT: Mike Norris says more needs to be done to manage

the increasing number of cruise ship passengers and tourists

visiting Akaroa.

in tourist numbers are difficult

to accommodate, as Akaroa is

sandwiched between the sea

and steep hills, and has limited

capacity.

Britomart Reserve near the

wharf is one of the few green

public spaces and is used for

family picnics and recreation.

The city council has placed unconsented,

temporary toilets on

this highly-sensitive area. The

city council also fails to properly

maintain the town, which is

looking run down and overused.

Cruise ship passengers are

bearing much of the blame for

harming Akaroa’s character,

but pressure is also coming

from an increasing number of

independent travellers, many in

campervans.

Small ships of several hundred

passengers present few problems.

Tourists staying for several days,

eat in the town’s restaurants,

shop and sustain businesses

which residents also need and

use. Sustainable tourism has

long been the lifeblood of the

local economy, but if Akaroa’s

character is damaged, these

visitors will stay away.

The city council is developing

a new visitor strategy to assist

business owners as they work

through the transition of large

ships returning to the Port of

Lyttelton. Cruise ships will

continue to visit Akaroa, but

hopefully on a more managed

schedule, with less impact on the

town’s limited infrastructure.

The civic trust recognises that

many businesses have invested in

servicing the market presented

by the temporary increase in

cruise ship visits, but with the

completion of the Lyttelton

terminal everyone needs to look

for a new tourism strategy which

is sustainable and will replace

some of the lost business.

Akaroa needs to protect its

authentic character and ensure a

local community survives against

high visitor numbers, which put

both character and community

at risk. Lonely Planet has already

recorded unfavourable comments

advising visitors not to bother

with Akaroa on busy cruise ship

days, and the town’s businesses

could be seriously impacted

simply through negative social

media.

Fete and music festival to restore Governors Bay jetty

• By Louis Day

A FETE and music festival will be

held next week in a bid to restore

the Governors Bay jetty.

The Governors Bay

Community Association and

Governors Bay Jetty Restoration

Trust have joined forces to

organise the annual fete and a

“save the jetty” music festival

on March 30 at the Allendale

Reserve.

The Governors Bay Jetty

Restoration Trust is currently

raising money and working with

city council on a project to restore

the jetty.

The jetty has been closed since

2011 after an inspection from

engineers found it to be unfit for

public use.

Trust secretary Louisa Eades

said $735,000 has already been

raised towards the project.

However, she said the restoration

project was likely to cost $3

million in total.

“We are working with the city

council to get them to allocate

more money towards the project

in the Annual Plan. If all goes to

plan, we would like to start the

project in the spring, but that

totally depends on fundraising,”

she said.

Proceeds made from the fete

UNSAFE: The Governors Bay

jetty has been closed since

2011 after an inspection from

and music festival will go towards

the restoration of the jetty.

The fete will run from noon-

4pm and include entertainment,

stalls, a fire brigade

demonstration, white elephant, a

vintage car showing, food and a

pop-up bar.

From 6-10pm, the trust will

hold the “jetty music festival.”

Local bands will provide

entertainment and there will

be food stalls and a pop-up bar

run by Two Thumbs Brewing

Co. The line-up will include

The In Crowd, 3KG and James

Constable.

Keeping measles away

KEEPING MEASLES at bay

has been our top priority.

It’s been excellent, I’ve

barely driven further than

30km the whole time.

Vittoria has thoroughly

enjoyed the car seat reprieve.

In spite of this, it was me

suffering in the car.

With all the measles cases

popping up in the region, we

booked Vittoria in for her

next stage of immunisations

as soon as we could.

Unfortunately, that meant

8.30am.

But Vittoria and I needed

to stay in Waikuku and

we couldn’t move the

appointment.

With the rush on the

measles vaccine, I didn’t want

to risk missing out.

Anyone who’s ever done

the North Canterbury to

Christchurch commute will

understand why this is a bit

of a stretch if you don’t leave

early enough.

So, for the first time in a

long time, I woke up before

Vittoria and then in turn

woke her at 6.30am.

Having said that, we didn’t

leave until 7.45am.

By the time we hit Main

North Rd, we were knee

deep in traffic, time was

ticking and my road rage was

kicking in.

I was sweating, watching

the minutes creep by.

Meanwhile, Vittoria was

chilling in the back seat,

having a sip of water when we

were forced to crawl along.

If you were driving there

at the same time, I’m sorry,

I definitely called you some

very carefully selected words.

Not swear words, of course,

as bubs might pick that up.

No, I likely called you a

VITTORIA

& Matt

spoon or a muggy fluffer.

I need not have stressed

really, we got there just in the

nick of time to wait in the

waiting room for the vaccines

to be ready.

Now, having whinged

about myself, I need to extol

the virtues of my daughter –

because she did great.

She cried a bit when the

needles went in (just two

this time) but was running

around outside smiling and

laughing 2min later.

She was even her happy self

for the rest of the day.

But we’ve not long noticed

that she’s pushing a molar

out. So watch this space as to

whether her happy self sticks

it out.

Exhibitions on

Sumner Rd

reopening

THE HISTORY OF Sumner

Rd has been captured in two

exhibitions celebrating its

reopening.

The exhibitions, which are

on at the Lyttelton Library and

the Mataku Takotako: Sumner

Centre until April 28, tell

the story of the road and the

important role it has played in

linking the communities.

They have been put together

to mark the reconstruction of

Sumner Rd, which is set to reopen

to traffic for the first time in eight

years at 6pm next Friday.

“Since Sumner Rd opened in

1857 it has played a vital role in

Christchurch’s transport network,’’

said Lyttelton community

librarian Annette Williams.

Ms Williams said the road also

played a role in the defence of

Christchurch against possible

enemy attack.

“In the late 19th century, when

there were fears the Russians

were going to invade, gun

emplacements were installed at

strategic points along Sumner

Rd.”

The exhibitions detail the

engineering work that has gone

into keeping Sumner Rd open for

the past 160 years.

Love builds a happy home... And that is exactly what our owners had in mind when they were inspired to create this

extraordinary house, just 4 years ago. The result of their careful planning is a contemporary and stylish property that

meets the needs of a modern family, yet retains a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all.

With a sleek and simple design embellished by contemporary touches, this is unmistakably cutting-edge. The heart

of the home is a light-filled, open plan kitchen & living zone. A clever floor plan allows an additional living area to be

opened up, creating an easy flow for entertaining friends, or to be closed off for a more intimate family space.

Who’s taking part in the

It’s the 45th anniversary

of the Star Media

City2Surf. Reporter

Anan Zaki spoke to

some of the participants

aiming to be at the start

line on Sunday

Aaron Cooper, 43

Mr Cooper is set to take part

in his first City2Surf and will do

the 14km race.

“I just want to keep fit and test

the legs on running the distance.”

Mr Cooper plans to run a

half marathon

(21km) – which

is on his bucket

list – and

believes this is a

step towards the

goal.

“It’s the

Aaron Cooper

first time I’m

running 14km.

I’m a surfer,

I’m not really a runner. I used

to play rugby until I was 21 . .

. and, yeah, it [running] is just

something I’ve always wanted to

do,” he said.

Mr Cooper’s wife often takes

part in multi-sport events but

she will greet him at the finish

line as the couple have two young

children.

“When she gets fit, we’ll

definitely be doing other races as

a team,” he said.

David Clark,

29

Taking part in

the 14km event,

Mr Clark is

looking for a new

challenge. It will

be his second

David Clark time entering the

City2Surf.

“It’s just a wee challenge to just

test myself for a bit of fitness,” he

said.

“[The first time] was good. I

want to try something further, I

did the 6km [last year] and want

to try the 14km.”

He has been training hard

for the event and says he will be

ready for the race on March 24.

NEWBIE: Hailey McConchie will be running in her first

City2Surf this year.

“Currently I’m doing it myself

but we’ll see if my partner does it.

That will be just a wait and see.”

Hailey McConchie, 25

The mother of two used to be

focus on body building, but since

having her second child last year,

she’s switched to running.

It will be her first City2Surf.

“I’ve never been a runner.

People who tend to lift weight do

not like cardio whatsoever,” Mrs

McConchie said.

To lose weight after pregnancy,

she took up running. “I’ve lost a

lot of my baby weight . . . I started

an eight-week challenge and lost

about 6kg,” she said.

Getting into running was

difficult.

“At first it felt like a long time

to get running, even that first

kilometre. It felt like ages,” Mrs

McConchie said.

She will be taking part in the

6km event. “Every time I see a

race I just enrol myself and just

build myself in it.”

Mrs McConchie has heard

great things about the City2Surf

but couldn’t take part in it last

year as she had just given birth to

her second child a month before

the event. “I’d like to keep my

running up [this year]. It’s not

something I really enjoy but once

I find my rhythm 2-3km in, that’s

when I can see why some people

are addicted to running,” she

said.

Kelly Clements, 46

Mrs Clements

doesn’t live

far from the

start line near

Centennial Park.

She says the

City2Surf is a

good excuse to

Kelly

Clements

not pay for a gym

membership.

“It’s just my

one thing that makes me head

out and train each year. It’s

not too far being only 14km.

Rather than paying for a gym

membership, I sign up and it

makes me run,” Mrs Clements

said.

This will be her fourth

consecutive City2Surf. “A friend

got me into running and it was

that whole give it a go, it’s a

reasonably flat course and lots of

fun,” she said.

Unfortunately her friend

Clements will be running the

event solo for the first time.

“I’ll be on my own but that

doesn’t matter because it’s so well

set up you don’t really care, you

just run.

“I haven’t stopped [training]

all year but I probably stepped

up distances in the last six weeks.

There might have been a few 5km

runs but I stepped it up to a few

10km.”

Nory Lansing, 28

Being a personal trainer,

Ms Lansing has many friends

and clients taking part in the

City2Surf.

“I’m a runner

in general, I

always like a

challenge in a

run. Living in

Christchurch,

it’s part of the

routine here,”

she said.

It’s her second

time doing the City2Surf. “

It was good fun [last year]

Nory Lansing

knowing so many runners in the

field. It’s a challenging course

but in saying that it’s just for

yourself really, not so much a

competition,” she said.

“I do heaps of running with my

clients so I think it’s motivating

and encouraging to be on the

course for them.

I mention it every week

in a [gym] newsletter and during

my running sessions to sign

up and do whatever they can,

running or walking,” Ms Lansing

said.

CITY2SURF

with Les Mills

Kristyn Ferry and Simon

Bradshaw

Simon Bradshaw, 30

Mr Bradshaw was

convinced by his partner

Kristyn Ferry to take part in

the 14km event.

“She did it last year and

enjoyed it and this year she’s

going to do it again. She said

she’d like me to do it with her

and I said why not.”

“She’s doing it more for a

social, keep fit aspect than it is for

a competitive aspect. So I’ve got

the same kind of idea to be doing

it to keep fit and healthy rather

than making the top 10,” he said.

Mr Bradshaw trains most days.

He has never entered a running

event before.

“I think I’ll be a bit nervous on

the day [of the race]. Just nervous

trying to get to the end,” Mr

Bradshaw said.

Seamus Tredinnick, 30

Running in the 6km event, Mr

Tredinnick, who is a keen sailor,

will be returning

to the event

for the second

consecutive year.

“My wife [Emily]

is a keen runner

and has done a

few marathons

so she’ll be doing

the 14km run,”

he said.

“Basically, at

Seamus

Tredinnick

least if I sign up for an event, it

gives me a bit of motivation to

work towards to getting me out

and running, which is probably a

good thing,” Mr Tredinnick said.

“When you’ve got a peg in

the ground it’s easier to move

towards that goal,” he said.

Mr Tredinnick’s goal is to

finish the event.

Retraining puts

new career within

easy reach

‘United as one with

our Muslim friends’

Port Hills

list MP Nuk

Korako

focuses on

the ‘love,

fellowship,

and

unity’ shown by New

Zealanders in the face

of terror

I HAD originally written

this article with a view to

the change in season which

is approaching. The events

on Friday have utterly

changed my view.

In considering what

to say to you at this time

of great mourning and

sorrow, I will not dwell

on the small man who

sought to drive division

and hatred through our

nation’s heart.

Rather I want to focus

on the extraordinary

outpouring of love,

fellowship and unity we

have seen over the past few

days.

Up and down the

country Kiwis of every

race, creed and colour have

poured out of their homes

and into places of worship

and places of gathering to

show that the actions of

one man cannot change

who we are.

Our fellow New Zealand

Muslim community

has paid a terrible price

in bringing our nation

together.

Each and every one of us

is united as one with our

Muslim friends, family

and community. We stand

united in showing that

their pain, their loss, their

sacrifice will never be

forgotten by any of us.

This is the time when

we will search our souls,

seek out division and

hatred and meet it head

on with love, compassion,

and the light of unity

that defines us as New

Zealanders.

To the victims and the

families associated with

this awful day – we cannot

hope to understand the

devastation you face.

What we can do is be

here for you and work

with you to ensure not

only does this never

happen again – but that

we use this time of grief

and mourning to unite

more closely with you and

with each other as New

Zealanders united.

Ma te atua e manaaki e

tiaki tatou katoa.

It’s never too late to completely change

career, as Reece Scott has discovered.

Calling time on his 17-year career in the

travel industry, he’s completely changed

path and is now focused on becoming

a chef.

“At the time I was the South

Island sales manager for The Travel

Corporation, which involved

representing the company’s award

winning travel products to travel agents

and consumers throughout the South

Island, from Invercargill to Nelson,”

Reece says. “By then I’d been in the

industry for a long time and I just felt

the need to challenge myself again.”

In order to forge a new career path,

Reece knew he needed to retrain. “I’ve

always enjoyed working with food and

have had experience in the industry

before so I wanted to brush up on my

skills and seek employment in cookery.”

Reece says he chose to study at Ara

Institute of Canterbury because of its

reputation as a world-class tertiary

training centre. “The cookery school

at Ara has a reputation for preparing

students to a high standard and giving

them the best skills for employment.

They also have great facilities and

inspiring, knowledgeable tutors.”

One of those tutors is Stuart

Goodall, who’s had a hand in

training many students who’ve

gone on to become top chefs,

both here and overseas. “He really

knows his stuff,” Reece says. “He

bestows his knowledge to us in

a very relaxed way that’s easy to

understand.”

While Reece undertakes his

cookery course, he’s getting

to put his training into

practice at Ara’s on-campus

restaurant, Visions. “It’s

great to see how it all works,

from when an order comes

in right through to producing

a saleable product for paying

customers. It’s giving me the skills

and preparation to be ready for

employment.”

Reece is keen to encourage others

– especially those who aren’t happy

in their current career - to follow

his example and study towards a

new career. “Definitely do it,” he

says. “Retraining has prepared

me really well for employment

in this industry.”

off Linwood College

A CELEBRATION is

planned for April 5 and

6 to celebrate the past 65

years of educational history

of Linwood College.

In mid-2019, the

school’s buildings will be

demolished in preparation

for a full rebuild on the

site. At $44 million, the

rebuild budget is one of

the largest of any of the

Ministry of Education’s

rebuild programmes since

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Students enrolled at the

school will be relocated

to the former Avonside

Girls’ High site for the full

duration of the rebuild.

When news of the

rebuild was released,

approaches were made

to the school for an

opportunity to celebrate

its past.

At the time it was built

in 1954, Linwood High

was the first post-war, coeducational

school to open

in New Zealand.

While the school looked

more like a building

site than an educational

campus on its opening

day, the community soon

proudly rallied around

its new high school and

ensured it had resources

equivalent to any existing

school in the city.

To mark the demolition

of the buildings, a ticketed

Conversazione event will

be hosted on April 5 and a

free open day on April 6.

The event will end with a

farewell ceremony at 3pm.

This event will be open to

anyone in the community

to attend.

Past students from all

over New Zealand and

Australia have bought

tickets to attend the

farewell, says organising

committee chairwoman

Linda Rutland.

“People have a real

attachment to their old

school with the original

1954s remaining a very

tight-knit group.”

Our People

Rose Lindley

Returning to nursing to work in Africa

After 47 years as a

nurse, Mt Pleasant’s

Rose Lindley wanted to

get involved in aid work.

So she spent three weeks

on a mercy ship in Guinea,

West Africa. Sophie

Cornish talks to her about

the experience

Tell me about your trip on the

mercy ship?

I worked as a recovery nurse,

looking after people after they

have had surgery. I have done

that for more than 20 years in

Christchurch. It took more than

40 hours to get to Conakry, the

capital of Guinea in West Africa,

and more than 40 hour to get

home – it was hideous. The

mercy ship organisation is more

than 30-years-old. Basically it

is a Christian ship – it is run on

Christian principles. You don’t

have to be a Christian to work on

it. You are treated regardless of

your race or religion; there are no

barriers. They treat everything.

They go up the coast of Africa.

The countries of West Africa

invite them to come because they

can’t provide surgeries for people.

Even if they did, the people

couldn’t afford to pay for it. So

mercy ships provide free medical

and surgical care for these

patients. People come to the ship

at the beginning of its time in the

country and they are assessed for

suitability of surgery. Some people

they say yes to, some people

they can’t treat and have to go

home to die. There is a palliative

care team that follows them up.

Not everyone can be treated, but

they treat as many as they can.

They spend 11 months in every

port. Sometimes they take people

in at the beginning of their time

there, then they go away and

come back and have follow-up

surgery. It is funded by donations

from big corporations in

America. A lot of pharmaceutical

companies provide resources. All

the people on it work for free and

pay for everything.

So how does it all work with

the staff?

You pay for your airfares,

vaccinations and a monthly crew

to live on the ship, nothing is

free for staff. I was on it for three

weeks. Some people are on it for

two weeks and the longest person

has been on it for 30 years. He

brought up his whole family

on the ship – there is a really

good school on it. The thing I

always say about the ship is that

it should never work, but it does.

We have 400 people, plus 200 day

crew, living on a ship together.

There is something like 30 or 40

nationalities working together

and it’s the happiest environment

I have ever worked in. It was

brilliant, it was amazing. You

could be working with someone

from Australia, the Netherlands

or Germany, but English is the

spoken language. They have

interpreters throughout the place.

From September last year to

when I was there, they had 214

staff through the theatre block.

A lot of the staff go back again.

For me, I wish I did it when I

was in my 20s. I would have gone

back, but it’s a bit late now, it is a

long journey to travel. There are

a lot of jobs I could do. There is

a place called the hope centre,

where people stay until their next

surgery. There are a lot of jobs –

plumbers, electricians, every job

you could think of, it’s like a wee

town.

Was everything as you

expected it to be?

I watched the videos online

and it was what I expected,

but the atmosphere was way

more amazing than I ever

anticipated. It was beautiful.

The conditions we saw on the

ship, we would never see in

New Zealand, because we have

free medical care here. There is

a huge stigma about disability

there, it is considered a curse.

These people are ostracised from

their communities because they

are disfigured, so they come to

the ship. No one on the ship is

revolted by what they look like,

we know they need help. So they

immediately feel they are loved

and not ostracised. When people

feel they are loved and not being

told they are different, there

is hope. The extremity of the

disability was way more than you

would ever see in New Zealand.

There were children born with

cataracts, no one in New Zealand

is born with cataracts. It’s to do

with malnutrition and disease

with the mothers. There were

goiters (when the thyroid gland

becomes enlarged). The biggest

one they removed when I was

there was 1.6kg. Nothing is

treated at an early phase, there is

no early treatment. These people

live on less than $2 a day. Things

are cheap there, but if you don’t

have an income, it is still not

enough.

Did you ever feel unsafe there?

Conakry is certainly not on

the tourist destination route. It’s

so poor. Most western tourists

like a little bit of comfort; they

like to see giraffes and elephants.

The infrastructure is pretty

limited there. At the moment,

it’s reasonably politically stable. I

think the ship was in Cameroon

last and that’s really unstable

at the moment. They have this

awful, unstable political situation

in most of these countries. I

never felt unsafe, though, not

once. They really love the mercy

ships, they are French-speaking

so they would say ‘merci.’ We

weren’t allowed to go into

town by ourselves, they didn’t

recommend it. To be honest, it is

all pretty unsafe, poverty drives

people to it.

Tell me about your 47 years in

nursing?

I trained in Christchurch. I

went down the surgical route of

nursing. I have always wanted to

do aid work, but when you have

a husband, children, a mortgage,

all that sort of thing, it makes it

harder. I did some private work,

but I mainly worked at Christchurch

Hospital, working in the

Intensive Recovery Unit and

in recovery for 14 years. I have

been overseas and worked in the

outback of Australia. You might

think I have an obsession with

indigenous people, and I have, I

love them. I worked in this place

called Halls Creek, way up in

Kimberley in Western Australia.

Our People

From nursing to small business owner

•From page 17

I was a nurse in a hospital there

for five months.

What was the difference

between your time as a nurse in

New Zealand and on the ship?

We are very privileged in New

Zealand. We have a really good

health system. I have seen some

of the most appalling behaviour

from adults in the medical

profession. But on the ship, I

have never seen such humility

among the staff. That’s what we

are all about – we are here for

the patients, not our own egos.

There is so much money involved

in medicine. There is medical

insurance, hospitals, private

hospitals – such vast quantities of

money. Over there, there isn’t any

money involved, everyone works

for free. We are all there for the

patients. The guy that has been

there for 30 years, Gary Parker,

he is amazing. He puts people’s

faces back together in five or six

hours. He does the most amazing

surgeries. The sort of surgery

he’s doing, he would be a multimillionaire

in America, but he is

sponsored to work on the ship.

What were some of the most

significant moments for you on

the ship?

Watching the children having

their bandages taken off and they

can see for the first time in their

lives. I cry, I’m such a big baby. It

just gets me, because of what you

know, that these people’s lives are

changed forever.

The stuff they are doing is just

basic stuff so the people can have

a decent life. I went down to the

Ponseti clinic one day, that is

where they treat clubbed feet. The

patient’s feet are rotated inwards,

they just don’t function. So they

do a simple treatment over a

course of weeks and months and

the kids can walk again normally.

It’s incredible. The surgery they

do is always life-changing. In

their notes, they have a picture

of what they looked like when

they came in beforehand. We

would always look at the pictures

and 99 per cent of the time we

were saying ‘oh my goodness.’

We would ask if they want to see

a mirror and some would say,

yes, and some would say, no, and

sometimes they would get the

mirror and just be beaming. It

was just amazing.

Tell me a little about the

business you are running now?

I love markets, I’m a foodie. So

SNACKS: Rose

Lindley runs

her healthy

food business,

Mumma Bear,

out of a shop

in Mt Pleasant.

I started my own wee business. I

used to write recipes for a health

and fitness website. I started

with two products, I am now at

16 products. I used to go out to

a commercial kitchen at Lincoln

to make it all. Then two years

ago, the wee shop at the bottom

of the hill came up, so we rented

it. That’s what I want to do

now, make healthy muesli and

porridges and crackers and bars.

My husband is retired and he was

a food scientist, so he does all

my nutritional stuff. I like selling

good, healthy food. It’s called

Mumma Bear – food as it should

be. I got the name because my

kids call me Mumma Bear.

I woke up one morning thinking

that’s what it should be called.

I get really grumpy with food

in the supermarkets because

you don’t know what you are

eating. They don’t know what the

heck it is. I am really honest with

my stuff, what is on the back

is what is in it. As of next

month, we will be selling

ingredients from the shop, as

long as they bring their own

containers.

Tell me about your family?

We have been here in Mt

Pleasant for 32 years. We built

our house and we have lived in

this area all our married life.

We have two children, Grace

and David. Grace is a speech

language therapist in Paris. She

has been there for nine years.

David has got a finance degree

and works for company called

Compass in Tampa, Florida.

He is shifting up to Chicago to

October. They are there with

their boyfriends and girlfriends.

I don’t have any grandchildren

yet, but I want them back here if

they do have grandchildren. My

husband Tim is on the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, he loves it and is really

good at it.

a large North facing deck, perfect to take in

the excellent Harbour views.
