Effectiveness of Sumner

sea wall under investigation

• By Louis Day

THE effectiveness of the

Sumner Esplanade rock

retaining wall is being

investigated.

The 1.2km wall extends

from Cave Rock to

Scarborough Beach and

protects Sumner from

flooding.

The assessment comes

six years after a report

from environmental and

engineering consultants

Tonkin & Taylor found the

condition of the rock wall

left Sumner vulnerable to

flooding.

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell

Latham said an assessment

of the wall was long

overdue.

“The overall effectiveness

of the current sea wall is

questionable. As a matter

of priority, Sumner residents

require a functional sea wall

to mitigate climate change

predictions and storm

surges. Funding should be

allocated in the Long Term

Plan to undertake this work

as soon as possible,” he

said.

WE HAVE a great spread of photos from

the various Anzac Day services in the Bay

Harbour News area (see pages 4-5).

As usual the services were well

patronised by young and old alike.

It must have been a tremendously proud feeling for those who

have personal ties to the services, and for those who have had

family fight in long gone conflicts and wars.

Sumner Redcliffs RSA’s Bernie Godden also reflects on Anzac

Day in the aftermath of the city’s terrorist attack.

He says: “The decision to go ahead with the Anzac Day parade

was unanimous, unequivocal. Those attending were not to be

bowed by the horrific events of March 15.”

And thanks to the RSAs which sent in photos for our spread.

Boy racers burn up Naval Point

• By Louis Day

BURNOUTS IN the early hours

of the morning are upsetting

campers and nearby residents at

Naval Point.

Boy racers have been an ongoing

issue at Naval Point since the

barrier arm was removed by the

city council since in November.

A nearby resident

who wished to

remain anonymous

said the situation

had been getting

progressively worse

since then.

Andrew

Rutledge

“You have 20

freedom campers

lined up in their

vans and you get two or three

cars that come in and intimidate

everybody, I watched one guy

who burnt up so much that he

blew his tyres out and drive back

to Lyttelton on his rims,” they

said.

Sergeant Franco Lovrich said

boy racers found to be causing a

disturbance would be fined $600.

“It is a nuisance and there is

enforcement action that will be

taken if those responsible are

found doing it,” he said.

Several reviews complaining

about the behaviour of boy racers

at the site have been left on the

“Stayed here on Saturday and

What on earth?! It was disgraceful

and dangerous so will never

return here again.”

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the barrier

arm was removed because constant

damage was costing the city

council $15,000 a year in repairs.

Mr Rutledge said there was a

development plan under way for

the Naval Point area and that

consideration of public access

would go out for consultation

later in the year.

Anzac Day services

Anzac Day services went ahead as usual and were well attended across the Bay Harbour News area.

Past and present members of the military, war veterans and descendants of those lost in conflict

came together to commemorate the occasion. Here are some images from the Sumner, Lyttelton and

Diamond Harbour events.

Anzac Day in

the aftermath

of the March 15 shootings

THE DECISION to go ahead

with the Sumner Anzac Day

parade was unanimous,

unequivocal.

Those attending were not to be

bowed by the horrific events of

March 15.

So many familiar faces turned

up and a lot of new ones too.

Representatives from all the

services past and present took

part in the parade along Wakefield

Ave to the Sumner Redcliffs

RSA memorial gates, where the

service was held, the reassuringly

familiar laying of wreaths, the

sounding of the Last Post, the

lowering of the flags, followed by

a minute’s silence.

Then the Ode to the Fallen, recited

by the president Pat Boland.

The Sumner Silver Band burst

forth with the Reveille as the flags

go back up.

The Reverend Thomas Brauer

then led the Lord’s Prayer, inviting

people of all faiths, and those

without, to plea for peace. It was a

poignant recital.

The guest speaker Colonel

Craig Duane, is a man with considerable

military experience. He

highlighted the many conflicts in

which New Zealand servicemen

have taken part over the years

and continue to this day. They

defend our principles across the

globe. They have our respect. Let

us not forget that many need our

continuing support.

Following the Thanksgiving

and Benediction, the crowd

joined in the singing of the

National Anthems of the United

Kingdom, Australia and New

Zealand, bringing the event to a

fitting conclusion.

Hollywood to Redcliffs for cinema owner

• By Julia Evans

A FORMER writer for major

Hollywood film studios who left

the bright lights of Los Angeles

for love is getting ready to open

the new Arts Centre cinema.

Redcliffs resident Max

Hoffman co-owns the Lumiere

Cinemas with cinephile Nick

Paris. It is expected to show its

first film soon – although it was

planned to open by Easter.

“It will open

very soon, within

the next couple

of months, but

we really want to

get it right.”

The pair have

been hands-on

Max

Hoffman

throughout the

whole process,

travelling to

China to work

with the manufacturer on every

centimetre of the Lumiere’s fit

out.

“We went over and sat in

the chairs. You can try and

order things online, but we had

everything custom done.”

But before moving to

Christchurch after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

Mr Hoffman worked as a

screenwriter for 20th Century

Fox and Disney studios.

He was not credited for the

work, which included re-writing

scripts.

“I was an in-house writer with

the writers’ guild for 10 years . . .

it’s hard work and if I’m honest,

it was thankless,” Mr Hoffman

said.

He left the Hollywood industry

five years before moving to

Christchurch.

“I’d done it, it was a hard job,

and as a writer, I just didn’t

have anything else to say,” Mr

Hoffman said.

“Then I met my husband, he

was a Kiwi travelling in LA.”

Mr Hoffman left his

home in LA to live with his

husband Sebastian Stapleton

in Christchurch after the

earthquake.

“I said I’m going to move there

and help you. I’d never been here

before, I didn’t know where it

was, which is embarrassing to say

now.”

Mr Hoffman then fell in love

again.

“It truly is the best city in the

world. There’s no better city than

Christchurch.”

He met Mr Paris on a visit to

Christchurch’s iconic Alice in

Videoland, which is where the

idea for Lumiere Cinema was

hatched.

Mr Paris has worked in local

cinema for the last 40 years -

from being a cinema projectionist

to helping ensure the Isaac

Theatre Royal was equipped for

screen movies.

“I got to meet Nick, who has

this incredible passion for film

and my husband, and I knew we

had to get behind him,” he said.

“Christchurch is very fortunate

to have Nick running and

programming the Lumiere as

his depth of knowledge in film is

most impressive and people who

love movies will be able to benefit

from that when they talk with

him.”

When it opens, the cinema will

feature two theatres and a bar

overlooking the Botanic Gardens.

Mr Hoffman said it would also

host outreach programmes for

prospective film makers.

“They used to do that at the

Arts Centre, so we want to bring

it back,” he said.

‘Flying boats’ part of Lyttelton Harbour’s past

Bay Harbour News

reported last week on

a plan to bring

seaplanes to Lyttelton

Harbour – but it would

not be the first time

they have taken off

in the area. Louis Day

looks at previous visits

PENINSULA AIR Ltd is working

to bring seaplanes to the harbour.

If the Rangiora-based company

is successful, it would not be the

first time seaplanes have operated

in the area.

On January 3, 1938, a flying

boat from

Wellington

was welcomed

by thousands

of spectators

at Lyttelton

Harbour.

It took just over

Maryanne

Jackson

90min for the

plane to complete

its journey from

Wellington.

The Imperial Airways flyingboat

Centaurus was the largest

aeroplane to enter the South

Island at the time.

It came from the south-west,

flying swiftly over Gebbies Pass

and landing near Erskine Point

less than 2min after it was first

spotted by the crowd standing on

the port wharves.

The flying boat had successfully

completed what was the longest

flight in the history of British

commercial aviation three days

before arriving in Lyttelton,

making the journey from

England to Wellington.

Former Lyttelton resident

Maryanne Jackson remembers

several seaplanes coming into the

harbour during the 1950s.

“I would have been in primary

school at the time. I remember

them coming and landing, it

happened a few times.”

“It was quite exciting for us, we

were quite young and we had not

seen a plane land in the sea,” she

said.

A DECISION on the

funding of Sumner’s crime

cameras will not be made

until August 5.

A key figure behind the

bid to bring crime cameras

to the suburb said this was

too long to wait.

Chief executive of security

company October

Protection

and Sumner

resident Matt

Wood, was

ready to

supply Safer

Sumner with

security

cameras after they raised

$4000.

However, the cost of

the cameras skyrocketed

to $20,000 after police

requested the cameras be

aligned with their system.

This led to Safer Sumner

approaching the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote

Community Board in

December.

Hills to identify properties

affected by – or potentially

at risk from – rockfall, cliff

collapse or movement.

However, the current

outdated slope instability

overlays are imposing unnecessary

restrictions on

Port Hills homeowners.

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said the updated

overlays would reduce

restrictions on affected

homeowners.

“It would give the property

owner more flexibility

and it, therefore, means

when the property is sold

it gives the future owner

more flexibility, which may

The community board

requested further technical

information on the

cameras following their

presentation.

Safer Sumner made

a formal application to

the Strengthening Communities

Fund once the

community board received

the technical information

which will be decided on in

August.

“We have had a measure

to reduce crime, I have

purchased the cameras,

they are sitting in my office

well be reflected in property

values,” he said.

The city council’s regulatory

performance committee

said without an amendment

to the slope instability

overlays, affected property

owners would continue to

have unnecessary restrictions,

costs and uncertainty

imposed on them.

“This may result

in property owners

being unable to carry

out activities on their

properties, may hinder

property sales and may

be affecting property

values,’’ a report from the

committee said.

Decision on crime cameras

will be made in August

Matt Wood

when they could have deterred

a serious amount of

crime and we just continue

to face red tape,” Mr Wood

said.

Mr Wood said Sumner

desperately needed some

form of crime prevention.

“Criminals look for

weakness and wealth.

Sumner portrays wealth

and the absence of cameras

and a permanent police

presence in Sumner is

creating weakness and

therefore opening ourselves

up to crime.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

HISTORY: The footpath along the rock wall following a storm in July 1978.

Sea wall investigation

•From page 1

Emails obtained by Bay

Harbour News show the purpose

of the assessment was to report

on the present condition of the

rock wall and identify the best

way to restore its effectiveness.

The report from Tonkin &

Taylor stated the rock wall was

likely to be overtopped during a

one per cent annual exceedance

probability event, resulting

in seawater flowing over the

Esplanade and potentially

flooding the first row of houses

in the area.

AEP is the probability of a

certain size of flood occurring

in a single year.

A one per cent AEP flood flow

has a one per cent chance of

occurring in any one year and a

10 per cent chance of occurring

in any 10-year period.

Dr Latham said the

community board was not

informed about the assessment

before it was undertaken.

“I had to hear about the

project details through

unofficial sources and I’m

angry that the city council did

not take the time to update the

community board or the

Sumner community about

the scope and significance of

the assessment before it was

undertaken.”

Dr Latham said he would be

requesting that the findings of

the assessment be made public

once completed.

BOOST: John McLister with a group of seafarers from the

Philippines outside the Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre.

Seafarers’ centre may

get more funding

• By Louis Day

THE LYTTELTON Seafarers’

Centre could receive a boost.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel has met

with Lyttelton Port Company

chairwoman Margaret Delvin to

discuss ongoing funding options

for the centre.

The city council has also

requested Christchurch City

Holdings Ltd engage with LPC to

support the centre.

Further discussions with the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board will happen before a

final decision is made on future

funding.

LPC currently gives $5000

to the centre every year, while

Christchurch City Holdings Ltd

does not provide the centre with

funding.

The centre has had more than

10,000 visits from seafarers since

it opened three years ago.

Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre

Charitable Trust chairman

John McLister said more funding

will allow the centre to offer a

more complete service. “With

the current limited funding

we have, we can only be open

certain nights of the week. More

funding would mean we could do

longer hours and provide a better

service,” Rev McLister said.

Rotary sells daffodils and prints

Lyttelton Rotary Club

update of what has been

happening at the club

LYTTELTON Rotary has been

blooming daffodil bulbs as our

first fundraising project of the

year.

Thank you to all of you who

have purchased our quality

bulbs – we are aiming to make

this an annual fundraiser as it

Candice reported at our

THE LYTTELTON Recreation

It comes after the city council

partnered with Project Lyttelton

to revitalise the centre.

City council head of

John Filsell said he felt

the centre could be put

to better use if it was

actively managed by a

community group.

“Since reopening in

2016, it was clear the

centre wasn’t achieving

the numbers it had

enjoyed pre-quake,” he

said.

“We reached out to

Project Lyttelton to see

if they’d be interested to form

a partnership to activate and

manage the centre.”

Project Lyttelton chairwoman

Margaret Jefferies said the

partnership would help bring

the community together.

That is the Port Hills I chose to

I may be retiring from

Balancing sugar intake

I HOPE you’ve all had an

did.

Not that I didn’t have

with my hopes.

Maybe it’s because she’s

our first child but Laura

and I are pretty strict on

how much sugar we let

Vittoria have. If we’re

having something sweet to

eat in front of her, she’ll get

a wee bit to taste, but we

don’t normally give her one

of her own.

Secretly, I think we

limit it so that she might

continue being a healthier

eater than us for her

lifetime.

Long story short, Vittoria

did not get an Easter egg.

However, she did eat

a lot of good food at

multiple family meals and

even scoffed a few pieces

of Laura’s mum’s famous

italian prune cake (once

erroneously translated

as “mum’s sweet affair of

prunes” by Facebook).

treat was getting to take

meals. She was super cute

Big first-up test for Lincoln Combined

• By Jacob Page

Tom

Hooper

LINCOLN COMBINED will

start their UC Championship

rugby campaign with a tricky

home assignment on Saturday.

Under new coach Tom Hooper,

they will take on last year’s semifinalists

Rangiora High School.

Lincoln Combined had their

most successful season in the

competition last year, finishing

seventh but challenging for a

top-four spot over

the majority of the

season. They were

also undefeated

at their Lincoln

High School-base

during the roundrobin.

Lincoln

Combined beat

Waitaki Boys’

High School 17-7 on Saturday in

their final preseason game.

Hooper, who takes over from

Mike Wilson, said he is happy

with the squad’s preseason

work, which has seen them train

together for the past eight weeks

and get a 37-0 win over Mid-

Canterbury Combined.

The squad has 15 players

returning from last season,

including captain and playmaker

Wil Gualter.

Hooper said with the cyclical

nature of secondary school rugby

teams, he is keen to focus on

what his team does well to get off

to a strong start this season.

TEAM: Lincoln Combined are looking to improve on last year’s UC Championship rugby

campaign in which they finished seventh.

“Overall, I’m really pleased

with how the preseason has

gone,” he said.

“The squad is fit and any

preseason niggles we had are

clearing up and we have a good

base of players in our squad to

start the season,” he said.

He said it will be important

for his team to make the most of

their home games this season.

Hooper said if any teams

underestimate them, particularly

in the forwards where they have

been traditionally under-size, he

will welcome the challenge.

“We’ll be going into every

game respecting the teams we’re

playing and expecting to come

up against some really good

sides. We wanted to have a squad

that we felt could go the full

70min and we are confident we

have that.”

Hooper said he hopes the

boys who have returned from

last season have learnt from

their experiences playing

against traditional competition

heavyweights, like Christchurch

Boys’ High School and Christ’s

College, to improve their play in

crucial moments.

The team will face several

road trips this season with two

to Timaru to take on Roncalli

Combined on May 18 and

Timaru Boys’ High School on

July 6.

They’ll also head to Ashburton

to play Mid-Canterbury

Combined on June 1, and play

their penultimate round-robin

fixture in Nelson against Waimea

Combined on July 27.

Saturday’s game against

Rangiora High School at Lincoln

High School kicks-off at 2.30pm.

Aaron's Surf Report

A PROLONGED flat spell

through the school holidays

was broken just in time for the

Exit Surf Canterbury men’s surf

championships over the weekend.

THe contest started in 60cm

waves at New Brighton and was

moved to Taylors Mistake for the

finals day. This was the first time

the event had been at Taylors for

many years and it was great to

see New Zealand’s top surfers

ripping it up on our beach.

After a messy and windy start

to the day, conditions turned

it on for the finals with winds

swinging offshore and a low tide

creating punchy, peeling left and

right-handers across the bay.

Gisborne’s Maz Quinn put

on a clinical display of high

performance surfing to win

the open men’s. Local surfers

performed well, too, with Rodney

Somogyvari (Sumner) winning

the over-30s, Mike Oakely (New

Brighton) winning the over-45s,

and young Jack Tyro (Sumner)

winning the under-14s. Hugh

Ritchie (New Brighton) won the

longboard division with a great

mix of traditional and modern

longboard surfing. With this

win Hugh claimed the national

season.

The Seventhwave Canterbury

women’s surf championships

were held a few weeks ago in

60cm waves at New Brighton

Pier. The event has been

rejuvenated this year by the

newly-formed Southern Wahine

Boardriders club. More than 64

entrants came from all across the

South Island to compete in more

than 10 divisions.

Alethea Lock (Sumner) made

her comeback to competition,

winning the Seventhwave open

women’s. Other local surfers also

performed well, with Amelie

Looking ahead, the Joyce and

Co Winter Freeze will be held

at Waikuku Beach on May 11

and 12 and then the Canterbury

scholastic surf championships on

May 19. The South Island surfing

circuit concludes with the grand

finale in Kaikoura over Queen’s

Birthday weekend.

Wave wise May can be one of

our best months for surf. The

water temperature is still hanging

in there with a reasonable 15 deg

C. This should drop gradually

through May. A large high

pressure system is dominating

the weather this week and we

should enjoy some nice little

north swells from the current

weather pattern before the winter

southerlies really kick in.

Sea People, The Puzzle of Polynesia

by Christina Thompson

For more than a millennium, Polynesians occupied the remotest islands in the

Pacific Ocean, an enormous triangle stretching from Hawaii to New Zealand to

Easter Island. Polynesians today can trace their roots back to a group of epic

voyagers who first explored this vast expanse Sailing in large, double-hulled

canoes, they were the first and, until the era of European discovery, the

only people ever to have reached this part of the globe. Today, they

are widely acknowledged as the world’s greatest navigators.

But how did these ancient mariners find all these islands?

How did they reach them? Diving deep into the history of the

Pacific, Christina Thompson uncovers who these voyagers

were, where they came from, and how they managed to

colonise every habitable island in Remote Oceania. A thrilling

intellectual detective story, Sea People combines the thrill of

exploration, the wonder of pursuit, and the drama of a gripping

historical puzzle.

The Never Game

Escape or die trying…

No.1 international bestseller Jeffery Deaver returns with a stunning new thriller –

the first in an exciting series featuring enigmatic investigator Colter Shaw.

A student kidnapped from the park.

Nineteen-year-old Sophie disappears one summer afternoon. She wakes up to find

herself locked inside a derelict warehouse, surrounded by five objects. If she uses

them wisely, she will escape her prison. Otherwise she will die.

An investigator running out of time.

Sophie’s distraught father calls in the one man who can help find his daughter:

unique investigator Colter Shaw. Raised in the wilderness by survivalist parents,

he is an expert tracker with a forensic mind trained to solve the most challenging

cases. But this will be a test even for him.

forest – and the whole case gets turned on its head. Because this killer isn’t

following the rules; he’s changing them. One murder at a time…

Big blow to

Sumner’s

metro rugby

top six hopes

• By Gordon Findlater

A PLACE IN the top six appears

to be out of reach for Sumner

after they fell to their fifth

straight defeat in the premier

metro rugby competition.

Sumner once again conceded

a flurry of late tries at the

weekend to go down 15-37 to

Belfast at Sheldon Park. They

now head into Saturday’s match

against competition frontrunners

Lincoln University

without a win.

Sumner trailed by just one

point at half-time against Belfast

after tries to Alistair Crossdale

and Eiji Kaneda. However, they

were only able to amass an

early penalty in the second half

before Belfast retook the lead

and never relinquished it.

Sumner coach Martin

Dodgson said they will now

readdress their goals for the

season with a top six place all

but out of reach.

However, Sumner’s division

two side won their first match

in almost two years when they

claimed the ‘golden jandal’ from

Suburbs in a 40-14 win at Hoon

Hay Park.

•Sumner v Lincoln University

kicks off at St Leonards Square

at 2.45pm.

Nothing prickly about Citroen’s Cactus

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

WHEN CITROEN’S Cactus

first made its way onto the

global market it raised eyebrows

everywhere with its styling.

The cheeky five-door hatchback

was unorthodox, to say the least,

with its heavy frontal styling and

controversial bubble wrap-type

Airbumps on the doors which

protected the bodywork from

damage. Nevertheless, buyers

warmed to the Cactus, and it has

been pretty much a success in all

of the markets it’s been sold in.

In New Zealand Citroen isn’t

a big player, but if you study the

product line-up you’ll find practical,

affordable vehicles which are

thoroughly appealing through

design flair. I guess, you’d expect

nothing less from this French car

maker which has had a reputation

for bold styling cues as they are a

considerable part of the appeal.

A new Cactus has just been

released, and while it incorporates

the styling elements of its predecessor,

it is a little more orthodox

and gone are the Airbumps which

were a major talking point on the

original.

That’s a bit of a disappointment

to me, I liked the concept,

and anything practical on a car

that keeps it looking fresh and

dent-free certainly finds favour

with me.

Gone, too, is the predecessor’s

diesel engine, the Cactus arrives

here in just one specification and

it gets a 1.2-litre turbocharged

three-cylinder engine which is also

used in Citroen’s C3 and Peugeot’s

2008. I’ve experienced this engine

before in both those cars and can

safely say it is one of my favourite

engines of this design, it is quiet,

smooth, and doesn’t overly let

the occupants know of its design

through the harmonics often associated

with its three-pot layout.

The twin-camshaft petrol

engine is listed with a 81kW

and 205Nm rating, these are

healthy outputs, and if you take

into account the light weight of

the Cactus at just 1090kg, it is

a lively model under acceleration.

Citroen claim a standstill to

100km/h time of 10.9sec which

is all the acceleration you need in

today’s motoring environment.

Drive is channelled through a

conventional six-speed automatic

transmission, together there is

reasonable harmony and gearing

CITROEN CACTUS: Economical three-cylinder engine.

which manufactures that lively

performance along with healthy

fuel economy.

The latter is listed by Citroen

at 5.3-litres usage per 100km

(53mpg) on a combined cycle

average. The evaluation car’s dash

display was constantly sitting

around 6.7l/100km (42mpg).

If you also take into consideration

the Cactus’ weight, then it

has benefits in all areas, the engine

isn’t working hard to maintain

momentum, hence the light fuel

load, and there is a feel through

the chassis and suspension that

promotes a sporty sensation.

The suspension deserves a worthy

mention. Anyone familiar with

Citroen product will relate to the

hydropneumatic and air suspensions

systems of eras gone by.

The Cactus doesn’t get anything

quite to sophisticated; however, it

• Price – Citroen C4 Cactus,

$35,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4170mm; width, 1710mm;

height, 1480mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1199cc, 81kW,

205Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.9sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

does get what Citroen describe as

magic carpet ride engineering.

Put simply, what appear to be

conventional shock absorbers

actually incorporate two hydraulic

stops, one for compression and

one for decompression, they dissipate

energy from road bumps,

helping to create a smooth ride.

In effect, the ride is well cushioned,

I had an errand to run

over the far east side of the city,

and broken roads on that journey

were a good test for the suspension,

the Cactus has a controlled,

comfortable ride. It can also

attack corners, there is strong

steering feel, turn-in is also direct

and precise.

In my introduction I mentioned

the Cactus’ styling. It isn’t

radical as it could be, but it is a

departure from the norm. The

interior is modernistic and minimalist

in its detailing, however,

it all works cosmetically. You can

also mix and match with interior

trim colours and materials.

I particularly like the permanently

exposed panoramic roof

which is out-of-the-ordinary but

also adds to the character of the

car, it was a $1500 option, but it

represents the ideology of Cactus.

In terms of specification, the

Cactus is also well appointed. You

get all of the kit you’d expect on a

$35k car with many of the functions

operated by voice recognition

technology. I guess one omission

is the lack of tachometer.

That aside, the Cactus

incorporates all things practical

in a modern, stylish package. It’s

a compact five-seater, but also a

funky purchase for anyone who

dares to be different. The last

model sold well in New Zealand,

and I’m expecting the newcomer

to be just as popular.

I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’

as the title for the trilogy because I

feel that it best represents my work

and the person I am.

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive

sadness, typically with no obvious

cause.

Part I: Identity 2018

Part II: Dissectum 2019

Part III: Lost & Found 2020

Dissectum means ‘deeply cut’ and

in its original meaning refers to the

deep cuts in foliage. For me the

deep cuts are not just the ones we

need to make to understand the

workings of an organism but also

the potential deep cuts we need to

consider when we have to make

big decisions (as in: ‘Murderous

Intent’). To be deeply cut can also

be the result of our experiences in

life. And with deep cuts comes the

need to heal, to find ways to put

what is left back together again or to

form a ‘new’.

The exhibition is in two parts –

the front of the gallery is ‘The

Wunderkammer*’ where various

objects, boxes and other curios are

shown.

*Wunderkammer: A cabinet of

scientific curiosities, especially

during the Renaissance

In the back of the gallery I am

exhibiting a series of, mainly

charcoal drawings, all working with

or referring to ‘Dissectum’, plus

4 small bird paintings embellished

with embroidery.

Simon van der Sluijs is an artist

of Dutch descent and traditional

painting and drawing training.

His themes are deeply personal,

unconventional, dark, humorous and

disturbing.

Time for Pre-winter

Plumbing & Gas Check

With winter coming, the

professionals at Laser Plumbing

Christchurch East in Ferrymead

suggest that now is a good time to

prepare by ensuring that your gas

appliances are safe and in good

working order.

Leaks can happen over time causing

a reduction in efficiency of the

appliance, more gas to be used and,

most importantly, create a danger to

those living in the home.

For your safety they recommend

annual servicing and a safety

inspection of:

• Gas fires

• Gas water heaters

• Gas hobs

• Outdoor fires and BBQ’s

This can be done quickly and

efficiently by Laser Plumbing’s

qualified technicians.

The business is owned and

operated by Sumner locals Chris

Dick and his wife Carol McCann.

Chris has 40 years’ experience in

the industry, and as he says, a small

amount of time spent now can help

to avoid nasty surprises later on.

“The last thing you want are issues

mid-winter when you need hot

water and heating the most.”

In fact, if you have any plumbingrelated

concerns around your home,

give Chris a call. He will be happy

to offer advice and sort out the

problem, which may very well be a

simple job.

WINTER ChECkLIST

1. Gas appliance check.

2. Drains – if you have an older

home with ceramic pipes

and you haven’t had a free

drainage check yet, make sure

you call and book this in. EQC

are still covering the cost of

earthquake-damaged drainage

repairs and Laser Plumbing

are experts at helping clients

deal with the EQC process and

making it all seem very easy.

3. Gutters and downpipes –

autumn leaves can get caught

in guttering and downpipes,

which can cause water leakage

into your home. To prevent

this from happening, they

recommend clearing these

out at least once a year. If you

need help to do this, give

them a call.
