Peacock<br />

dispute<br />

escalates<br />

after five<br />

killed<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

FIVE WILD peacocks have been<br />

shot on a farm near Lyttelton as a<br />

neighbourhood dispute escalates.<br />

Brenchley Farm owner Sue<br />

Stubenvoll said the peacocks were<br />

killed after they wandered onto<br />

her property. She said it was done<br />

to stop them eating endangered<br />

geckos and skinks on the farm.<br />

The cull has shocked neighbour<br />

Janelle Wills. She told <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News she needed more<br />

time to relocate the peacocks<br />

which gather at her property to<br />

be fed.<br />

In February, Ms Stubenvoll sent<br />

a legal letter to Miss Wills, saying<br />

she had the right to shoot the peacocks<br />

under the Impounding Act.<br />

She gave Miss Wills four weeks<br />

notice of what would happen if<br />

they came onto her property.<br />

Miss Wills said the shootings<br />

were “inhumane.”<br />

“There is no other word for it. It<br />

is affecting all of my family,” she<br />

said.<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

YOU WOULDN’T want to be a peacock<br />

strutting about in the hills above Lyttelton<br />

at the moment.<br />

That’s because if you stray onto Sue<br />

Stubenvoll’s farm you’re likely to get<br />

shot (see page 1). Stubenvoll has followed<br />

through on her threat to shoot wild peacocks which stray onto<br />

her property.<br />

That has upset neighbour Janelle Wills, who the peacocks have<br />

been heading to for a feed.<br />

Stubenvoll says the peacocks are also interested in snacking on<br />

endangered skinks and geckos she says are on her farm. And that<br />

is the justification for getting the gun out.<br />

Wills has been relocating the peacocks and wanted more time.<br />

She is justifiably angry. I suspect others will be too.<br />

And Stubenvoll’s plan to eat the peacocks? Interesting.<br />

Support for seaplane takes off<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

NOT EVERYONE in Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> is against a plan to<br />

fly seaplanes into Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Resident Jane Davison says the<br />

seaplanes will provide a boost to<br />

the economy.<br />

“I think the harbour should<br />

be welcoming<br />

to commercial<br />

business<br />

opportunity<br />

where it can. We<br />

don’t want to<br />

go backwards,<br />

Jane<br />

Davison<br />

Richard<br />

Suggate<br />

we want to go<br />

forwards,” she said.<br />

“I would have<br />

thought that there<br />

is potential to<br />

provide locals with<br />

job opportunities,<br />

and if people come<br />

to the harbour<br />

to do a seaplane<br />

flight, who is to<br />

say they won’t<br />

stop in at a bakery<br />

and buy a doughnut or a coffee<br />

somewhere?”<br />

In last week’s <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

News, Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Community Association<br />

chairman Richard Suggate said<br />

the group made a submission to<br />

the Civil Aviation Authority in<br />

opposition to Rangiora-based<br />

company Peninsula Air Ltd’s<br />

plan to construct a waterdrome<br />

in the harbour.<br />

The proposed 1km long<br />

runway would be located<br />

between Rapaki and Quail<br />

Island and provide seaplanes<br />

with an area to take off and land.<br />

SCENIC: A company’s bid to emulate the Sydney seaplane<br />

experience in Lyttelton has received a mixed response from<br />

residents.<br />

It would also take people on<br />

scenic tours of the peninsula.<br />

“We are concerned about the<br />

effects on other users of the<br />

harbour, such as waka ama,<br />

kayaks, swimmers, yachts,<br />

motorboats, the list goes on,” Mr<br />

Suggate said.<br />

Peninsula Air Ltd directors<br />

Mark Christensen and Grant<br />

Edmundson did not return <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News’ phone calls.<br />

Mrs Davison said the<br />

association’s view does not<br />

represent the entire community.<br />

She said the majority of people<br />

she has spoken to in Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> are in favour of the<br />

plan.<br />

“The community association<br />

has about 100 members and<br />

about 20 people turned up to<br />

their AGM. They do some good<br />

work but I think it is wrong<br />

to assume that number of<br />

membership could represent a<br />

community of over 1000 people,”<br />

she said.<br />

Mr Suggate said the<br />

association does not claim to<br />

represent the entire community.<br />

“There are always a range of<br />

opinions about any subject – I<br />

was expressing the views of the<br />

association, not the community,”<br />

he said.<br />

Public submissions close at<br />

the end of the month and can<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> firefighter fifth up tower<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

FIREFIGHTERS from across the<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News area raced<br />

up the Sky Tower’s 1103 steps on<br />

Saturday to raise money for those<br />

with leukaemia and blood cancer.<br />

The effort was part of the 15th<br />

annual Firefighter Sky Tower<br />

Stair Challenge where participants<br />

heaved 25kg of gear up 52<br />

flights of stairs.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade member Mark<br />

Patterson was the fastest<br />

volunteer up the tower with a<br />

time of 10min 6sec and was fifth<br />

overall out of more than 1000<br />

firefighters.<br />

“I was pretty chuffed actually,<br />

because I had been a bit crook<br />

building up to it. I was pretty<br />

nervous that I was not going to do<br />

that well so I am really stoked to<br />

get the time I did,” he said.<br />

Three firefighters from the<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> brigade raised<br />

$3500. In total, the Auckland<br />

event raised $1 million.<br />

The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade raised $15,000 for the<br />

cause.<br />

Lyttelton chief Mark Buckley,<br />

who was part of the support crew,<br />

was immensely proud of the<br />

effort shown from his team.<br />

“It was really good to see, I<br />

have got a great deal of respect for<br />

them and their enthusiasm was<br />

just fantastic,” he said.<br />

Six firefighters from the Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> volunteer brigade<br />

managed to raise $11,000.<br />

member Jeroen Hartman also<br />

raised $1768.<br />

costume for We Will Rock You.<br />

•From page 1<br />

“I am feeling like I am ready<br />

for a new challenge though, and<br />

hoping to soak up whatever they<br />

throw at me over there.”<br />

Hay usually sticks to musical<br />

theatre but is hoping to branch<br />

out during the course.<br />

“I am doing this acting<br />

course and throwing myself in<br />

the deep end without the security<br />

of being able to hide behind a<br />

song.”<br />

She has participated in a<br />

number of professional musical<br />

productions, including a leading<br />

role in We Will Rock You.<br />

“It was my first kind of lead<br />

role in a bigger company, it was<br />

at the Isaac Theatre Royal, two<br />

and a half weeks of shows, a<br />

1200-seat audience, doing seven<br />

shows a week and it was rock<br />

music so it was very vocally<br />

demanding and then trying to<br />

balance a day job with that was a<br />

challenge.”<br />

Hay is currently balancing<br />

her time as an organisational<br />

psychology consultant, singing<br />

teacher and aspiring actor.<br />

She said she would sometimes<br />

spend 30 to 35 hours a week in<br />

rehearsals while balancing her<br />

other commitments.<br />

She is hoping the 10-week<br />

acting course will help her transition<br />

into acting full-time.<br />

“My goal is to become<br />

competitive in auditioning for<br />

professional roles throughout<br />

New Zealand and possibly even<br />

going over to London for a little<br />

bit.”<br />

Five wild peacocks shot<br />

•From page 1<br />

Miss Wills said 10 peacocks<br />

had been relocated with the help<br />

of Serendipity Animal Rescue.<br />

But others hadn’t been because<br />

they would flee when trying to be<br />

captured.<br />

More time was needed to catch<br />

the peacocks, she said.<br />

Department of Conservation<br />

senior biodiversity ranger Anita<br />

Spencer said there were rare<br />

geckos and skinks in the area.<br />

“DOC hasn’t carried out any<br />

formal surveys to confirm there<br />

are lizards on the farm, but we<br />

understand a herpetologist has<br />

visited the property and identified<br />

the lizards,” she said.<br />

However, Ms Spencer said<br />

chickens posed the same threat to<br />

geckos and skinks that peacocks<br />

did, which Ms Stubenvoll keeps<br />

on her farm.<br />

Ms Stubenvoll said her chickens<br />

were not eating the geckos<br />

and skinks.<br />

“You can tell from the droppings<br />

of a chicken what it has<br />

been eating, if it has been eating<br />

something with blood in it the<br />

droppings go black. Guess what<br />

the colour of the peacock droppings<br />

are? Black! The chickens’ is<br />

a wispy white.”<br />

Ms Stubenvoll also told <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News she plans to eat<br />

the peacocks, and more will be<br />

culled.<br />

“It would be an awful waste to<br />

not eat them,” she said.<br />

Miss Wills said she was “disgusted”<br />

by the plan to eat the<br />

peacocks.<br />

Sharp perspex shards<br />

left on toddler swing<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

VANDALS left a<br />

sinister calling card at<br />

the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Playcentre – sharp perspex<br />

on a toddler swing.<br />

Police said the act could<br />

have caused injury.<br />

“A mindless and<br />

dangerous act that could<br />

cause serious harm to<br />

babies,” said Sergeant<br />

Franco Lovrich.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Playcentre president Anna<br />

Blundell<br />

found the<br />

perspex<br />

window<br />

of the<br />

boat in its<br />

playground<br />

Franco<br />

Lovrich<br />

had been<br />

kicked in<br />

on Monday<br />

last week, with shards<br />

scattered all over the<br />

ground.<br />

She then saw someone<br />

had placed the shards on<br />

the swing with the sharp<br />

edges facing upwards.<br />

Miss Blundell cut her hand<br />

removing the shards from<br />

the swing.<br />

VANDALS: The perspex<br />

window in the Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> Playcentre’s toy<br />

boat was broken and<br />

sharp shards were put<br />

on the toddler swing.<br />

described the act as<br />

mindless and dangerous.<br />

“We will certainly be<br />

following up on this with<br />

the view to potentially<br />

fingerprinting items at the<br />

scene, as well as looking<br />

at their security measures<br />

and providing advice to<br />

them where necessary,”<br />

he said. “We also ask the<br />

public for any information<br />

and that any suspicious<br />

behaviour is reported to<br />

us.”<br />

Miss Blundell, who has<br />

three children of her own<br />

attending the playcentre,<br />

was disgusted by the<br />

incident. “It makes me<br />

very angry that someone<br />

would intentionally hurt<br />

our children, the plastic<br />

was in the baby toddler<br />

swings that is for under<br />

two-year-olds. It just<br />

makes me angry that they<br />

think it is funny to do<br />

that,” she said.<br />

Miss Blundell said<br />

vandalism was something<br />

the playcentre used to<br />

experience quite regularly<br />

before security cameras<br />

were put in six months<br />

ago.<br />

Dancer stepping up to world stage<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

SAM Richardson wants<br />

to become one of the best<br />

dancers in the world. Now,<br />

the 19-year-old from Mt<br />

Pleasant has the chance to<br />

get there.<br />

He is one of three<br />

performer from Team<br />

Cozy crew, which<br />

has qualified for the<br />

World Hip Hop Dance<br />

Championship in the<br />

United States in August.<br />

Richardson is set to<br />

dance alongside Caleb<br />

Gopal, 18, and Chloe<br />

Wright, 15, in Phoenix.<br />

They finished second in<br />

the mini-crew category<br />

at the Hip Hop New<br />

Zealand Championship<br />

in Auckland last month<br />

and were one of just three<br />

teams from the category<br />

to qualify for the world<br />

champs.<br />

Richardson balances<br />

full-time work as a<br />

barber with weekly dance<br />

practices.<br />

“I just dance as soon as<br />

I finish work, it’s pretty<br />

busy, but I enjoy both of<br />

them so it’s no stress,” he<br />

said.<br />

The crew will have to<br />

showcase three styles of<br />

hip-hop dancing at the<br />

world champs. Richardson<br />

feels confident ahead of<br />

the competition.<br />

“I think we can do<br />

it, we have just got that<br />

chemistry. It would mean<br />

everything if we got it.”<br />

The styles include<br />

breakdancing, house and<br />

new school swag.<br />

The team will pay<br />

for some of the trip<br />

themselves, but are<br />

looking for donations and<br />

sponsorship.<br />

Ranulph Fiennes – Mad, Bad and<br />

Dangerous to Know<br />

Ranulph Fiennes has travelled to the most dangerous and<br />

inaccessible places on earth, almost died countless times, lost<br />

nearly half his fingers to frostbite, raised millions of pounds for<br />

charity and been awarded a polar medal and an OBE. He has<br />

been an elite soldier, an athlete, a mountaineer, an explorer, a<br />

bestselling author and nearly replaced Sean Connery as James<br />

Bond.<br />

In his autobiography he describes how he led expeditions all over<br />

the world and became the first person to travel to both poles on<br />

land. He tells of how he discovered the lost city of Ubar in Oman<br />

and attempted to walk solo and unsupported to the North Pole - the expedition that cost him<br />

several fingers, and very nearly his life.<br />

His most recent challenge was scaling the north face of the Eiger, one of the most awesome<br />

mountaineering challenges in the world. Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes OBE, 3rd<br />

Baronet, looks back on a life lived at the very limits of human endeavour.<br />

See you in the Piazza<br />

By Frances <strong>May</strong>es<br />

The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marcothese<br />

are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks<br />

only scratch the surface of this magical country’s offerings. In<br />

See You in the Piazza, Frances <strong>May</strong>es introduces us to the Italy<br />

only the locals know, as she and her husband, Ed, eat and drink<br />

their way through fifteen regions - from Friuli to Sardinia. Along<br />

the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found<br />

in traditional guidebooks. Frances conjures the enchantment of<br />

the backstreets, the hubbub of the markets, the dreamlike wonder<br />

of that space between lunch and dinner when a city cracks open<br />

to those who would wander or when a mind is drawn into the<br />

pages of a delicious book - and discloses to us the secrets that only someone who is on<br />

intimate terms with a place could find.<br />

The Baker’s Companion<br />

By Allyson Gofton<br />

A truly beautiful baking book, chock full of recipes and the<br />

accumulated know-how of Allyson Gofton. This is a book to be<br />

kept and treasured. There are more than 100 recipes for cakes,<br />

biscuits, pies, tarts, slices and brownies, quick bakes, puddings,<br />

pavlovas and meringues, bread and yeast baking, with how-tos<br />

and hints and tips throughout.<br />

Want to know why your cakes are always too heavy? Why the<br />

bottom burns? Can you just melt the butter to save time when<br />

creaming it with sugar? When it all goes wrong, what can you do? What can you bake for a<br />

friend who can’t eat gluten? Find the answers to all this and more in this book.<br />

From Scratch<br />

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home<br />

By Tembi Locke<br />

A poignant and transporting cross-cultural love story set against<br />

the lush backdrop of the Sicilian countryside, where one woman<br />

discovers the healing powers of food, family, and unexpected<br />

grace in her darkest hour. It was love at first sight when Tembi<br />

met professional chef, Saro, on a street in Florence. There was<br />

just one problem: Saro’s traditional Sicilian family did not approve<br />

of him marrying a black American woman, an actress no less.<br />

However, the couple, heartbroken but undeterred, forges on. They<br />

build a happy life in Los Angeles, with fulfilling careers, deep<br />

friendships and the love of their lives: a baby girl they adopt at<br />

birth. Eventually, they reconcile with Saro’s family just as he faces a formidable cancer that<br />

will consume all their dreams. From Scratch chronicles three summers Tembi spends in<br />

Sicily with her daughter, Zoela, as she begins to piece together a life without her husband in<br />

his tiny hometown hamlet of farmers. Where once Tembi was estranged from Saro’s family<br />

and his origins, now she finds solace and nourishment—literally and spiritually—at her<br />

mother in law’s table. In the Sicilian countryside, she discovers the healing gifts of simple<br />

fresh food, the embrace of a close knit community, and timeless traditions and wisdom that<br />

light a path forward. All along the way she reflects on her and Saro’s incredible romance—an<br />

indelible love story that leaps off the pages.<br />

THE FIRST walls of the<br />

new Redcliffs School went<br />

up last week.<br />

Pupils watched on as the<br />

pre-cast concrete<br />

walls were placed<br />

on Friday.<br />

Principal Rose<br />

McInerney was<br />

delighted with the<br />

progress being<br />

made.<br />

“After a lot of<br />

uncertainty, it is<br />

great to see that it<br />

is definitely going<br />

to happen. There<br />

were so many<br />

bridges that we had to<br />

cross to get here, but it is<br />

great knowing that we will<br />

McInerney<br />

have our school return to<br />

the community next year,”<br />

she said.<br />

Pupils will move into<br />

the new school on April<br />

27 and the official opening<br />

will be held in<br />

June.<br />

Prime Minister<br />

Jacinda Ardern<br />

said she will “do<br />

everything she<br />

can” to be at the<br />

opening of the<br />

school in a letter to<br />

pupils.<br />

Ms McInerney<br />

is confident Ms<br />

Ardern will be<br />

there.<br />

“We are pretty sure<br />

that she will be there. We<br />

are really excited that she<br />

wants to come, she knows<br />

that we have been on the<br />

biggest journey to get<br />

here,” she said.<br />

After a community<br />

campaign to keep the<br />

school open, then-<br />

Education Minister<br />

Hekia Parata reversed<br />

her decision to close it<br />

in November 2016.<br />

It was decided the school<br />

would relocate to Redcliffs<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

“LET’S GET the bugger over<br />

there and see what can happen.”<br />

That was the plan behind<br />

a fundraising effort that has<br />

gone into getting Lytteltonbased<br />

performer Tom Trevella<br />

to England to work under<br />

established actor and director<br />

Adrian Rawlins.<br />

At the end of the month, the<br />

long-standing Lyttelton Arts<br />

Factory actor will fly to the town<br />

of Beverley, near Hull, to star in<br />

a contemporary murder mystery<br />

play named Chippy, which will<br />

premiere at the East Riding<br />

Theatre.<br />

He will be working under the<br />

direction of Rawlins, who is best<br />

known for his role of James Potter<br />

in the Harry Potter films and<br />

Arthur Kidd in the 1989 horror<br />

film The Woman in Black.<br />

More than $3500 was raised<br />

at a quiz night on Saturday held<br />

at the theatre company to help<br />

cover Trevella’s travel costs –<br />

including airfares, train tickets,<br />

insurance and visas.<br />

Trevella said it was really<br />

“humbling” to see the Lyttelton<br />

community turn out to support<br />

his trip overseas and was looking<br />

forward to being able to give<br />

back next year.<br />

Chippy is earmarked to be<br />

performed in the LAF next<br />

MURDER MYSTERY: Lyttelton Arts Factory actor Tom Trevella and Hester Ullyart will perform at<br />

the East Riding Theatre in an original play by Joe Bennett, named Chippy. The show will come to<br />

Lyttelton next year. ​<br />

year.<br />

“It is a chance for me to broaden<br />

my horizon and get to work<br />

in a different environment,”<br />

Trevella said.<br />

Trevella described Rawlins<br />

as an “actor’s director” and was<br />

most looking forward to taking<br />

advantage of his knowledge and<br />

experience.<br />

“Just working with a professional,<br />

he has been working in<br />

the industry for so many years<br />

He is going to have a lot to pass<br />

on,” Trevella said.<br />

The opportunity for Trevella<br />

to travel overseas is born out<br />

of the strong professional relationship<br />

between LAF<br />

creative director Mike Friend<br />

and Rawlins.<br />

The relationship between the<br />

two theatre companies has led<br />

to the formation of an artist<br />

given actors the opportunity to<br />

travel between England and New<br />

In the past four years,<br />

the theatre companies have<br />

collaborated on a range of<br />

projects. It has seen English<br />

Again at LAF.<br />

Ullyart also returned to LAF<br />

this year to be mentored by<br />

The show will see Trevella<br />

perform alongside Ullyart,<br />

who has worked at a range of<br />

theatre companies including<br />

Northern Broadsides, West<br />

Yorkshire Playhouse and<br />

Sheffield Theatres.<br />

Trevella said the beauty of having<br />

worked with Ullyart before is<br />

already having a rapport which<br />

makes it easier because there<br />

is only two weeks to rehearse<br />

together.<br />

As well as heading to England,<br />

he has numerous projects on<br />

Residents pleased with removal of Balmoral Hill fence<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

THE FENCE at the bottom<br />

of Balmoral Hill has been<br />

removed.<br />

The fence, which was put there<br />

following the February <strong>22</strong>, 2011,<br />

earthquake, was removed on<br />

Tuesday after the city council<br />

found it was no longer needed.<br />

Over the last 18 months the<br />

city council has been undertaking<br />

a review and clean-up of the<br />

fences remaining around the<br />

city post-earthquake.<br />

“There was a delay in removing<br />

the fence as there was a<br />

redundant drain that had to<br />

be made safe. As this has happened,<br />

and other maintenance<br />

was undertaken<br />

(trimming of vegetation),<br />

the fence has been removed,’’<br />

said city council<br />

delivery transport and<br />

planning manager Lynette<br />

Ellis.<br />

Redcliffs Residents<br />

Association chairwoman<br />

Christine Toner was delighted<br />

to see the fence removed.<br />

“It is just fantastic, we are just<br />

absolutely thrilled about it,” she<br />

said.<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board member<br />

Darrell Latham thought the<br />

removal of the fence<br />

would enhance the entrance<br />

into the village.<br />

“This is a such<br />

stunning location<br />

with beautiful cliffs<br />

and coastal areas<br />

through which<br />

thousands of people<br />

Christine transit daily. The<br />

Toner<br />

removal of the fence<br />

and the trimming of the<br />

vegetation is really positive<br />

and it is another box ticked<br />

in the return to normality for<br />

residents on this side of town,”<br />

he said.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

$150k boost<br />

for harbour<br />

restoration<br />

A PLAN to restore the condition<br />

of Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> has received<br />

a $150,000 boost.<br />

Whaka-Ora Healthy <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

partnership chairwoman Yvette<br />

Couch-Lewis, of Ngāti Wheke,<br />

said the funding, which comes<br />

from the Ministry for the<br />

Environment, will go towards<br />

consultation with farmers and<br />

implementing some of the<br />

projects which come out of the<br />

consultation.<br />

“People who live in the harbour<br />

basin all care deeply about the<br />

land and the harbour. We’ll be<br />

working with the local farmers<br />

and landowners to re-establish<br />

wetlands, undertake stream<br />

plantings and take other steps<br />

that will reduce the sediments and<br />

contaminants that are going in<br />

the harbour.”<br />

The partnership consists of<br />

Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi<br />

the city council and Lyttelton Port<br />

Getting away for Mother’s Day<br />

JUST IN CASE you didn’t read last<br />

week’s column, we all got away for a<br />

short family vacation/Mother’s Day<br />

escape to Greymouth at the end of<br />

last week.<br />

Vittoria also only naps once a day<br />

now. It’s a tough transition for me.<br />

Whatever, don’t judge me parents of<br />

older kids.<br />

Pro-tip; a long car ride across the<br />

Southern Alps can give the illusion<br />

of a much longer nap time. As long<br />

as they can’t ask: “Are we there yet?”<br />

We managed to get away for<br />

our trip a mere 40min after our<br />

scheduled departure time.<br />

Vittoria went straight<br />

into her nap as we left the city,<br />

but with a couple of stops<br />

through the mountains<br />

(including the wonderful Otira<br />

Stagecoach Hotel) the total trip<br />

took longer than it would have on<br />

the bus.<br />

I actually enjoyed that though, it<br />

felt more like an old-school Kiwi<br />

whānau getaway. We even stayed in<br />

a holiday park and had a pub meal<br />

on the first night.<br />

Love it.<br />

We managed to get in a fair<br />

amount of sightseeing and<br />

relaxation in a couple of days, with<br />

Friday’s perfect weather making a<br />

great accompaniment to the views<br />

at Punakaiki.<br />

I even managed to sneak in a tour<br />

at the Monteith’s Brewery. Just me<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

though, can you imagine taking a<br />

toddler to a brewery?<br />

For Vittoria, the best part<br />

was quite probably the<br />

playground at the holiday<br />

park. Unfortunately, it started<br />

pouring down with rain not long<br />

after we arrived so she only got to<br />

play on it for like five minutes on<br />

day one.<br />

You should have seen how<br />

heartbroken she was when I took<br />

her back to the room.<br />

There were “everyone-thinks-<br />

I’m-a-bad-parent” level crying and<br />

screaming.<br />

The next day, her reaction<br />

when she saw that it was still there<br />

and able to be played on<br />

was awesome. She actually said<br />

“wow.”<br />

She’s not even talking yet but the<br />

playground managed to coax out<br />

what could be considered an actual<br />

recognisable word.<br />

Damn, that’s a good playground.<br />

To finish off our trip we took<br />

even longer to come home on<br />

Saturday, adding in more stops.<br />

keep it local<br />

and support businesses in your community<br />

Portray your love story, your way<br />

Planning a wedding is a huge project. There is so much to do - choosing a location and<br />

venue, invitations, the dress, music, cake, catering, the guest list, just to name a few<br />

tasks. But top of your list should be finding the right celebrant to officiate the ceremony.<br />

Meet Robyn O’Brien.<br />

THESE days a majority of NZ weddings are<br />

conducted by independent wedding celebrants.<br />

They offer an alternative to the traditional church or<br />

registry office ceremonies giving couples flexibility<br />

and choice for their service.<br />

Robyn is a locally based NZ registered Marriage<br />

Celebrant and she’d love to help you organise your<br />

special day.<br />

“The most important day in your life is the time<br />

where, in front of family and friends, you declare your<br />

love to each other for the rest of your life,” said Robyn.<br />

I’m 100% committed to guiding you through<br />

the entire ceremony process, organising the legal<br />

requirements, rehearsing and conducting the<br />

ceremony ensuring that your special day runs<br />

perfectly. It’s so important that your ceremony<br />

tells your love story, reflects your personalities and<br />

includes your ideas.<br />

Whether you’re planning something traditional,<br />

casual, themed or a little bit different, I can work<br />

with you to achieve your ultimate ceremony with<br />

the least amount of stress. You may want to include<br />

readings, poems, family traditions, children, even<br />

animals - nothing is impossible! I’m confident at<br />

public speaking and I love weddings. Having attended<br />

a ceremony writing course I know how important it is<br />

to portray your love story your way.<br />

As well as officiating your occasion, Robyn can<br />

provide her own PA system and is also a calligraphist,<br />

so is able to offer a calligraphy service for invitations<br />

and place name tags.<br />

Ceremonies are not limited to marriages. Robyn<br />

also performs name giving, renewal of vows,<br />

anniversaries, blessings, commemorations, pets and<br />

animals, and elopements.<br />

Here’s what happy couple Rebecca & Louis said:<br />

Thank you Robyn for helping us create a beautiful<br />

wedding ceremony that was special and unique for us<br />

as a couple. We really appreciate the work you put in to<br />

make the ceremony run smoothly, particularly since our<br />

vows were multilingual. With your help. we could enjoy<br />

a wedding ceremony which was truly our own, and<br />

one in which we could honour our respective cultural<br />

background.<br />

To ensure you find the right celebrant, Robyn offers<br />

a no obligation first meeting so you can decide if she<br />

is the right celebrant for you.<br />

mitre 10 mega ferrymead<br />

lend a helping hand<br />

On tuesday 7th of <strong>May</strong>, the Mitre10 Mega Ferrymead team lent a<br />

helping hand to the Mt Pleasant community centre.<br />

After our original date was postponed due to poor<br />

weather, opening the curtains a week later to see<br />

a drizzly overcast day wasn’t all that appealing for<br />

the Mitre10 Mega Ferrymead Helping Hands team.<br />

However, with forecasts clearing the decision was made<br />

to chuck on the ‘wet weathers’ and get stuck into a bit<br />

of DIY for the local Mount Pleasant Community Centre.<br />

Three key projects were on the menu for the day. The<br />

first was building five raised Macrocarpa garden beds<br />

on the empty lawn beside the community centre.<br />

Varying in sizes, the team quickly notched together a<br />

smorgasbord of healthy beds the<br />

local community can now grow,<br />

share and enjoy seasoned vegetables<br />

all year round.<br />

The second project included clearing,<br />

levelling and paving a run-down BBQ<br />

pit. Deciding on a paving pattern<br />

was a hot debate between teams but<br />

after drawing straws a design was finally agreed upon.<br />

A big thank you to the team at Firth Industries, who<br />

provided all the pavers for the job.<br />

Although it wasn’t needed on the day our last task<br />

included erecting a shade sail to complete the BBQ<br />

space. The team at Mitre 10 Mega Ferrymead were<br />

proud of their efforts on the day and wish to thank<br />

the friendly locals who gave up their time to get these<br />

projects over the line. We trust the Mount Pleasant<br />

Community will enjoy their new and improved outdoor<br />

space.<br />

One of our projects was to build raised garden beds in varying sizes for the local community to grow, share and enjoy.<br />

a message from<br />

the community centre...<br />

"The Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Gardens will<br />

provide a place for locals to meet and share their<br />

gardening expertise. It will also be used by the children<br />

at <strong>Bay</strong>s Kidsfirst to learn about gardening, " said the<br />

project convenor, Jocelyn Papprill. "The memorial" in<br />

the name refers to both the fact that the original hall<br />

was a war memorial, and the present hall is a memorial<br />

to the 2011 earthquakes.<br />

We would like to thank the help we received from the<br />

Christchurch City Council Sustainability and Innovation<br />

fund, Mitre 10 Mega Ferrymead and their Helping<br />

Hands team, Lyttelton Port Company, NZ<br />

Express, and the army of local volunteers."<br />

Your Local Views<br />

TIDY KIWI: Ferrymead Rotary Club member Ingrid Robertson<br />

transports rubbish to the pick-up point during the Mother of All<br />

Clean Ups.<br />

THE REMOVAL of remnant<br />

piles at Naval Point has been<br />

delayed.<br />

The 52 concrete piles –<br />

originally from the planned<br />

Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> marina, which<br />

was devastated by a storm in<br />

2000 – were set to be removed<br />

during April but will now<br />

be removed at the end of the<br />

month.<br />

The delay comes after<br />

equipment required for the<br />

removal project was needed on<br />

the West Coast to help with the<br />

clean-up following the flooding<br />

in March.<br />

The work will now begin in<br />

the final week of this month and<br />

is expected to take four weeks,<br />

depending on sea and weather<br />

conditions.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge said it was<br />

important for the equipment to<br />

have been diverted to help on<br />

the West Coast.<br />

“Although this has caused a<br />

small delay, we are happy the<br />

pile removal will start at the end<br />

of the month, improving the<br />

safety of the popular recreational<br />

spot for the different people and<br />

groups that use the bay for water<br />

activities.”<br />

The piles will become part of<br />

the Lyttelton Port Company’s<br />

reclamation work, saving on<br />

disposal costs.<br />

A wider piece of work is being<br />

carried out by the city council to<br />

develop Naval Point, which will<br />

involve public consultation later<br />

this year.<br />

Cleaning up our rivers<br />

Ferrymead<br />

Rotary Club<br />

member<br />

Barbara Crooks<br />

writes about<br />

how the charity<br />

has been giving<br />

back to the<br />

community<br />

FERRYMEAD Rotarians have<br />

been hands-on in the community<br />

over the past few weeks.<br />

They got their hands dirty<br />

clearing rubbish from the<br />

McCormacks <strong>Bay</strong> causeway,<br />

then made sure those hands were<br />

clean as they scrubbed up a few<br />

days later to cook an evening<br />

meal at Ronald McDonald<br />

House.<br />

Tanya Jenkins, a Ferrymead<br />

Rotary member and Mother<br />

of All Clean Ups co-ordinator,<br />

identified some encouraging<br />

trends. There were more helpers<br />

than last year, and there was<br />

less rubbish. Even so, the 835<br />

volunteers from 42 groups<br />

gathered 3.6 tonnes (588 bags)<br />

and 61 car tyres.<br />

This was the clean-up’s seventh<br />

year. It encompassed the Avon<br />

and Heathcote rivers, as well<br />

as the estuary. It was organised<br />

by the Avon-Heathcote Estuary<br />

Ihutai Trust, the Avon River<br />

and Heathcote River networks,<br />

with City Care collecting and<br />

disposing of the bags.<br />

A few days later, Ferrymead<br />

Rotarians cooked dinner for<br />

out-of-town families staying at<br />

Ronald McDonald House while<br />

their children receive treatment<br />

at Christchurch Hospital. The<br />

facility caters for children<br />

under-21 who have to come<br />

to Christchurch for long-term<br />

treatment.<br />

Ferrymead Rotary has joined a<br />

growing number of organisations<br />

and businesses on the cooking<br />

roster. There is no upper or lower<br />

limit – some do it once a year,<br />

others much more regularly.<br />

This was Ferrymead’s second<br />

time, and the crew kept it simple<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

– chicken legs, roast vegetables,<br />

coleslaw and apple pie for 45 or<br />

so. It might not have been cordon<br />

bleu, but it got a big tick from<br />

one Nelson 12-year-old: “That<br />

was a lot better than the hospital<br />

meals,” she said.<br />

The families – some of whom<br />

have to stay in Christchurch for<br />

months because the children<br />

need care not available in their<br />

home towns – were unanimous<br />

in their appreciation of the<br />

difference it makes not having<br />

to organise and cook after a long<br />

day at the hospital.<br />

And it was a salutary<br />

experience for the ‘chefs’ as they<br />

sat down to share their meal with<br />

youngsters and parents. They felt<br />

they had done something that<br />

was very worthwhile and much<br />

appreciated, and they learnt a lot<br />

from hearing the families’ stories.<br />

Sumner’s club day comeback<br />

SPORT<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

CLUB DAY was celebrated<br />

in style at St Leonards Square<br />

when Sumner’s premier side<br />

overturned a 17-point deficit<br />

to beat Sydenham 28-<strong>22</strong> on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Sumner found themselves<br />

in a tricky situation after just<br />

20min. A try<br />

to winger<br />

Charles<br />

Oswald was<br />

all the they<br />

had on the<br />

board while<br />

Sydenham<br />

ran rampant<br />

to take a 5-<strong>22</strong><br />

Martin<br />

Dodgson<br />

lead.<br />

“We got<br />

ourselves into<br />

a hole playing some horrible<br />

rugby. It was reminiscent of<br />

the first five rounds . . . we were<br />

absolutely gone,” said coach<br />

Martin Dodgson.<br />

However, Sumner didn’t<br />

replicate the trend that saw them<br />

start the season with five straight<br />

losses. A try to Mathew Tuala<br />

and a penalty try following a<br />

high shot on Oswald before the<br />

end of the half saw them turn the<br />

tide to trail 21-<strong>22</strong> at the break.<br />

“It shows how far the team<br />

has come, especially the leaders.<br />

The leaders were really calm and<br />

came up with some really clear<br />

solutions and then the boys went<br />

to work,” Dodgson said.<br />

As the home crowd came<br />

alive, Sumner dominated the<br />

second half. Their set piece and<br />

defence came to the fore, which<br />

resulted in Sydenham being kept<br />

scoreless – the first time Sumner<br />

hadn’t conceded points in a half<br />

this year. A converted try from<br />

halfback Hayden O’Donnell<br />

proved to be the difference.<br />

“That second half was really<br />

reminiscent of the second half<br />

against Lincoln University. We<br />

forced them into a lot of errors,<br />

which caused a lot of set piece<br />

which we were dominating,” said<br />

Dodgson.<br />

The win was Sumner’s third<br />

on the trot following results<br />

against Lincoln University and<br />

Canterbury University. They<br />

still have a mathematical chance<br />

of sneaking into the top six for<br />

the second half of the season.<br />

However, they will need other<br />

results to go their way in the final<br />

three rounds of the competition’s<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s fight to achieve their SFL goal<br />

FERRYMEAD <strong>Bay</strong>s are entering<br />

do or die territory in their bid to<br />

qualify for the Southern Football<br />

League.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s are two points off a spot<br />

in the Mainland Premier League<br />

top five after a 0-2 away loss to<br />

Nelson Suburbs at the weekend.<br />

The top five teams at the<br />

conclusion of the MPL will<br />

qualify for this year’s SFL.<br />

With five rounds remaining<br />

in the MPL, Saturday’s match<br />

against Western AFC at<br />

Ferrymead Park will be crucial<br />

in their bid to make the cut for<br />

the SFL.<br />

When <strong>Bay</strong>s and Western met<br />

on April 6, Western took the<br />

honours 1-2 at Walter Park.<br />

Over the weekend, keeper<br />

Adam Highfield ensured <strong>Bay</strong>s<br />

went into the break 0-0 in<br />

Nelson. He did well to shut out<br />

Nelson Suburbs in the second<br />

half. However, with just 13min to<br />

play, Nelson Suburbs broke the<br />

deadlock through Ben Wright.<br />

Six minutes later Cameron<br />

Gordon found the back of the net<br />

from a Ryan Stewart corner to<br />

double the lead.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s will also play in the<br />

second round of the Chatham<br />

Cup after a 2-1 win over Halswell<br />

United.<br />

They will meet FC Twenty 11<br />

on Queen’s Birthday for a place<br />

in the next round.<br />

SUCCESS: (Clockwise) – Halfback Hayden O’Donnell scored<br />

Sumner’s match-winning try against Sydenham. Harry Hawkes<br />

and Liam Taylor picked up awards after the Sumner Kingfish’s<br />

70-30 win over Halswell-Wigram on club day. The Sumner<br />

Sharks started club day early with a 32-5 win at Christchurch<br />

Park on Friday night.<br />

first phase. Other club day<br />

results saw the Sumner Sharks<br />

start their celebration early in the<br />

classics division with a 32-5 win<br />

over the Christchurch Canardly<br />

Heroes at Christchurch Park<br />

on Friday night. Meanwhile,<br />

Sumner’s reserve side went down<br />

5-63 to Sydenham’s reserves at St<br />

Leonards Square.<br />

Sumner and Suburbs’<br />

combined under-16 girls team<br />

also played at St Leonards<br />

on Saturday, going down to<br />

Prebbleton <strong>22</strong>-50.<br />

But it was a club day to<br />

remember for Sumner’s junior<br />

teams. Their 12 junior sides<br />

all played at McCormacks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

and enjoyed huge success. The<br />

only loss of the day came in<br />

an all-Sumner affair, meaning<br />

all opposition sides were left<br />

winless.<br />

On Saturday, Sumner’s<br />

premier side will face Burnside,<br />

which are in ninth spot, tied<br />

with Sumner on 17 points. The<br />

match at Burnside Park kicks off<br />

at 2.45pm.<br />

Lexus UX – gateway into the luxury brand<br />

Motoring<br />

Ross Kiddie<br />

I NEVER would have picked the<br />

change of direction that Lexus has<br />

travelled in the last few years.<br />

The company came onto the<br />

global market in 1989 with a<br />

large sedan and since then sport<br />

sedans, coupes and convertibles,<br />

along with a luxury four-wheeldrive<br />

vehicle, have accounted for<br />

a large part of its sales.<br />

However, in recent times, to<br />

capitalise on the global demand<br />

for sport utility vehicles, Lexus<br />

has changed direction slightly,<br />

there are a large number of SUVs<br />

in the company’s line-up, and it is<br />

ever-increasing.<br />

Just recently, a compact SUV<br />

has been launched by Lexus.<br />

Badged simply UX, it sits beneath<br />

the small-to-medium NX and<br />

RX. If you think of Toyota RAV4<br />

size, then the UX is about that<br />

stature, however, it gets a heap of<br />

upmarket kit that clearly has it<br />

sitting in the luxury car category.<br />

The UX lands here in force,<br />

there are seven front-wheel-drive<br />

and all-wheel-drive variants, all<br />

are 2-litre powered, yet there is<br />

the option of hybrid technology.<br />

From what I’m picking up from<br />

Lexus New Zealand and at local<br />

dealer level, the hybrid is the<br />

car to beat and it is the subject<br />

of this evaluation , an F-Sport<br />

Limited to be exact. It sits at<br />

$72,900.<br />

Incidentally, the UX hits the<br />

showroom floors at $59,900 for<br />

a 2-litre petrol, while a rangetopping<br />

4WD Limited hybrid sits<br />

at $75,900.<br />

I’ve driven a lot of hybrids out<br />

of the Lexus and Toyota stables<br />

recently, and I agree, the UX in<br />

hybrid form takes a lot of beating.<br />

For one the hybrid system has<br />

become what I would call normal.<br />

Whereas once hybrids took a little<br />

understanding and a technique<br />

to drive them effectively, that<br />

has all changed. Today’s hybrid<br />

works much like any other petrolpowered<br />

car, it feels just so right,<br />

and in Lexus form the refinement<br />

within the driveline mechanicals<br />

makes it hard to detect any<br />

transfer of power between electric<br />

delivery and when the petrol<br />

engine kicks in.<br />

Of course, there are many<br />

other benefits other than the<br />

sophistication, the UX hybrid is<br />

rated with a 4.5-litre per 100km<br />

(63mpg) combined cycle fuel<br />

usage rating. That claim sits<br />

well with the readout on the<br />

evaluation car, it was showing<br />

around 7l/100km (40mpg) when<br />

I took it back to the dealership.<br />

The UX is also quick, that’s the<br />

LEXUS UX F-SPORT: Two-litre engine with or without hybrid<br />

option.<br />

benefit of electric delivery. It will<br />

scamper to 100km/h in 8.6sec,<br />

and will complete an overtake<br />

manoeuvre in 5sec. The latter<br />

is attributed to the solid midrange<br />

delivery between electric<br />

and petrol, the UX has dynamic<br />

performance, Lexus claiming<br />

power outputs of 135kW and<br />

188Nm.<br />

Not only is the UX a spirited<br />

drive, it also handles with aplomb.<br />

I guess it doesn’t wear a F-Sport<br />

badge for nothing, the UX has<br />

accurate corner turn-in and<br />

definite steering feel.<br />

This is something Lexus does<br />

so well, the steering is involving<br />

and communicative. Riding on<br />

beautiful Bridgestone Turanza<br />

tyres (<strong>22</strong>5/50 x 18in), there is a lot<br />

of rubber in contact with the road<br />

and it shows, grip levels are high<br />

even without the four-wheeldrive<br />

option.<br />

There is little sensation power<br />

is coming out the front wheels<br />

only, the UX is balanced and<br />

controlled and, of course, you<br />

get an amazingly compliant ride,<br />

traditional with all Lexus models.<br />

That luxury feel doesn’t end<br />

there, the cockpit and cabin area<br />

is plush, the way Lexus create<br />

interiors is a real credit. The test<br />

car was trimmed with white<br />

leather, yet there are contrasting<br />

elements which work effectively<br />

to tone down the overpowering<br />

effect of light.<br />

There are also the ingredients<br />

which luxury car owners would<br />

expect even from an SUV. The<br />

UX is chock full of the latest<br />

technology for safety, comfort<br />

and convenience, and its styling<br />

and design inside and out is eyecatching<br />

and desirable. All of the<br />

ingredients are in place to make<br />

the UX very much a part of the<br />

• Price – Lexus UX 250h<br />

F-Sport, $72,900<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4495mm; width, 1840mm;<br />

height, 1520mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheel-drive,<br />

1987cc, 135kW, 188Nm,<br />

continuously variable<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.4sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 4.5l/100km<br />

Lexus family.<br />

Lexus claim the UX is the<br />

gateway model into the brand. I<br />

guess that’s a good call, however,<br />

the company will have to market<br />

that hard, Toyota have just<br />

launched an amazing new RAV4,<br />

and some models have similar<br />

drivelines to the UX. While it’s nice<br />

to step up into Lexus luxury, some<br />

buyers may well be happy with the<br />

cheaper option.<br />

Wherever the UX goes in<br />

terms of sales, it is just part of<br />

a spectacular range of Lexus<br />

models.<br />

Personally, I’d still be sticking<br />

to one of the sport sedans or<br />

coupes from the stable, but for<br />

those who do need or want an<br />

SUV, the UX will certainly be<br />

a purchase which will keep the<br />

buyer happy for many years, and<br />

it will definitely put a smile on<br />

their face every time they see<br />

the savings hybrids offer when it<br />

comes to fill-up time at the local<br />

service station.

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stand down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffered damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />
