REDCLIFFS residents have

licensing hearing over plans for

a fine wine and spirits store on

Main Rd.

Nine people spoke against the

plan, 46 made written submissions

and a petition containing 97

names was presented at the twoday

hearing last week.

Rizak Enterprises Ltd has applied

for an off-licence at 1/87

Main Rd to operate from Monday

to Sunday, 9am to 10pm.

Police, a city council alcohol

licensing inspector and the Canterbury

District Health Board’s

the hearing did not oppose

the fine wine and spirits store.

The hearings panel is now considering

the submissions.

GREAT NEWS for Lyttelton businesses on

page 6 today – and it’s all down to the new

Sumner Rd.

The link from the port to Sumner is

attracting people, and people spend. Go up

there on any weekend and you will see lots

of sightseers, and cyclists.

The road itself is fantastic, a huge engineering project, which

now has the protection needed to withstand rockfall and slips for

when the next big one comes.

Lyttelton Harbour Business Association chairman Rob de

Thier, who owns Lyttelton SuperValue, said there has been a

dramatic pick-up in customers for local businesses, particularly

those in hospitality.

And a big part of it is the lycra louts, and ladies.

It’s the boost Lyttelton desperately needed.

Harbour regulations likely breached

CRUISE SHIPS in Akaroa

Smaller ships

expected to ease

load on Akaroa

• By Louis Day

PAGE 3

Fire rages, homes at risk

DOUBLE CRUISE ship days will

continue in Akaroa next season.

The schedule for the 2019-2020

season has 13 double cruise ship days

and one triple cruise ship day.

January 4 is expected to be largest

double cruise ship day, with 7892

passengers and crew estimated.

Ninety-one cruise ships are expected

this coming season, one less

than the last season.

Akaroa Civic Trust chairman

Mike Norris was appalled by the

schedule.

“The fourth of January is during

a week when all the batch owners

are in residence in Akaroa and the

logistics of that combined with the

cruise ships are horrifying to think

of, the stress on resources it will have,

sewerage being one thing,” he said.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula councillor Andrew

Turner saw the schedule for the

coming season as an improvement

from last season.

“My understanding is that a number

of those cruise ship days involve

double cruise ships but some of

them involve smaller ships,” he said.

Cr Turner said Christchurch NZ

was continuing to work with the

cruise ship industry to avoid double

cruise ship days involving two large

ships in the future.

Controversial liquor store plan met

Fire rages, homes at risk

A plan for a liquor store

in Redcliffs went before

the district licensing

committee last week. Louis

Day reports

THE POLICE, the city council’s

district licensing inspector and

the Canterbury District Health

Board’s medical officer of health

all have no issue with the liquor

store planned for the Main Rd

shopping area.

But a number of Redcliffs

residents don’t want it.

Forty-six

made written

submissions

opposing the

plan, while

nine gave oral

submissions

at the hearing

and a petition

Neralie

containing

97 names was

presented to

Brittenden

the hearings panel.

Rizak Enterprises Ltd wants

to put the off-licence in at 1/87

Main Rd and operate from

Monday to Sunday, 9am to

10pm.

Redcliffs resident of 23

years Neralie Brittenden’s

closing statement during her

oral submission was met with

applause and cheers from the

public gallery.

“There is a billboard that

says say nope to dope, equally

to that I say nah to liqaaa,” she

said.

She is concerned about the

impact a liquor outlet could have

on youth in the area. “I have

12 grandchildren and I’m very

mindful of the social issues that

alcohol presents while kids are

growing up,” she told the threeperson

panel, chaired by Cindy

Robinson.

“I view it as an unnecessary

influence on our young people.”

This was a concern for many

objectors.

Rizak Enterprises Ltd sole

director and shareholder Juraj

Singh felt he was experienced

enough to mitigate alcohol harm

in the community. Mr Singh

referred to the success of his

Thirsty Liquor outlet in Papanui,

which he has run for three years.

“The application to renew the

licence was not opposed by the

reporting agencies, nor were

there any objectors. I have good

relationships within the local

community with both residents

and business owners. The good

order and amenity of the vicinity

has not been reduced in any

way,” he said.

Counsel Peter Egden does not

think what his client is proposing

poses more of a threat than the

Redcliffs New World alcohol

section.

“What Mr Singh proposes

is far better than the exposure

to alcohol at the supermarket,

where a child can go to the

supermarket unaccompanied

and go up and down the liquor

aisle unattended. They won’t even

be able to go into Mr Singh’s

store,” he said.

Mr Singh originally proposed

to operate the business under

the Thirsty Liquor franchise,

but decided to resubmit his

application as an independent

fine wine and spirits store.

Mr Singh said there would not

be the outdoor advertising that

characterises a typical bottle

store and he would ensure the

windows would be frosted to

the height of the shelving so the

alcohol would not be visible from

the street.

Sumner Redcliffs Anglican

assistant curate

John Fox

labelled the

application as

“incomplete and

inconsistent.”

Dr Fox

questioned

whether a fine

wine and spirits

store should be

selling RTDs.

Peter Egden

Mr Singh said

not all RTDs are bad.

“Old aged people love RTDs,

like Gordon’s gin and tonic.”

Dr Fox did not think Mr Singh

would be a “good neighbour.”

He referred to when Mr Singh

received a six-week suspension of

his manager’s certificate in 2011

for selling alcohol to an underage

person.

with opposition

Dr Fox thought Mr Singh’s

application failed to cater

for Redcliffs “vulnerable

community.”

“We have substantial areas

where people are still recovering

from the earthquakes and we

obviously had the terrorist attack.

What we would have liked to

see is a much more responsible

approach to alcohol harm.”

Mr Singh’s application was also

criticised by Redcliffs resident

Jackie Jones.

She questioned why Mr Singh

did not include tobacco in his

application when he had full

intentions of selling it in his store.

Mr Singh said he simply forgot

to include it in his application.

“Everyone sometimes forgets,

when you get ready you forget a

watch or something,” he said.

Ms Jones responded: “This is a

legal document and this is what

really concerns me. A process

must be seen to be followed.”

Redcliffs resident Dan

Tremewan was concerned the

instalment of a liquor outlet

would increase the amount

of disorderly behaviour on

Beachville Reserve.

Mr Tremewan said he would

often come across piles of soiled

clothing and inebriated people

sleeping on the reserve.

He said he had also been met

Dan Tremewan

with threats of violence when

asking people keep the noise

down late at night.

“There are already too many

problems on the reserve and we

don’t want to see alcohol access

extended and the problems

increase,” he said.

Mr Egden questioned whether

Mr Tremewan would challenge

New World’s liquor licence when

it came under review.

Mr Tremewan responded: “No

teenagers I know go and drink

pinot gris, they go and drink

RTDs.”

George Paul put questions to

both Mr Singh and the objectors

A TRIAL is under way to see

if roadside plantings can help

reduce the amount of sediment

ending up in Lyttelton Harbour.

Banks Peninsula’s hilly terrain

is covered by a windblown

sediment, which when exposed

to rain and wind, is easily

eroded and washes into the

many small streams that feed

into the harbour.

The Whakaraupō Rd

cutting trial is looking at

ways to lessen the amount of

sediment reaching the harbour’s

waterways because it’s having a

negative impact on the health of

the harbour.

“The harbour’s water quality

is deteriorating as a result of too

much sediment getting in,” said

city council head of strategic

policy Emma Davis.

By encouraging vegetation to

grow and cover the bare ground

and slopes beside the roads, the

team behind the trial hope to

dramatically reduce the amount

of sediment getting into the

harbour.

“Our team are trialling

various ways to use vegetation

to cover the bare soil and reduce

roadside erosion. This includes

applying a mixture of water,

In Brief

REPAIRS TO CLOCK TOWERS

Work on the Scarborough Clock

Tower is expected to begin in July.

The clock tower will have the sill

replaced and recast. The archways

and steps will also be repaired. The

repairs will be done in conjunction

with the New Brighton Clock

Tower as part of the city council’s

cost-saving strategy. Both clock

towers will have concrete and

corrosion treatments applied to the

entire structure.

WHARF SUBMISSIONS

Public submissions for the new

Akaroa wharf are now open. The

current wharf had a structural

condition assessment in late 2018

which identified it was reaching

the end of its useful life. This is

due to the declining condition of

its hardwood timbers, particularly

those below water. Public

submissions for the new wharf

close on June 26 and can be made

on the city council’s Have Your

Say page.

BUILDING GEAR STOLEN

A van was broken into and

building equipment stolen

between 8pm on Saturday night

and 7am on Sunday morning on

Rue Benoit in Akaroa. Anyone

with information can phone

police on 304 1030 or provide

information anonymously

through Crime Stoppers on 0800

LYTTELTON businesses are

enjoying the benefits of a rise

in visitors since Sumner Rd

reopened two months ago.

The road connecting Lyttelton

and Sumner was closed to

traffic for eight years following

extensive damage in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

It reopened at the end of March

after contractors spent two-anda-half

years working to reduce

rockfall risk and then repairing

and reinstating the route.

City council traffic counts on

Evans Pass Rd at the bottom

of the hill in Sumner show a

50 per cent increase in traffic

on weekdays. On weekends,

the average number of vehicles

more than doubled in the two

weeks after the road reopened,

compared to the previous two

weeks.

The average number of vehicles

on a weekday grew from 1128 to

1750; on Saturdays it rose from

1292 to 2951; and on Sundays it

increased from 1455 to 3045.

Lyttelton Harbour Business

Association chairman Rob

de Thier, who owns Lyttelton

SuperValue, said there has been

a dramatic pick-up in customers

for local businesses, particularly

in the hospitality sector.

“It’s been good, especially

for the coffee shops and bars.

They’ve seen a noticeable increase

since the road opened. With

the supermarket it’s been steady

instead of the normal drop-off we

would have going into April and

May. We haven’t had that yet,” he

said. “We’ve also noticed what

we call the ‘lycra brigade’ arrive

en masse. After biking over the

hill, they’ll stop here at the end

BOOMING: Rob de Thier says Lyttelton has

been noticeably busier since Sumner Rd

reopened in March.

Sumner Rd reopening helps businesses

of their ride to have coffees and

meals.”

Lyttelton Coffee Culture owner

Leona Cooper said the upturn

was “absolutely noticeable”.

“We’ve seen an increase every

day, not just on weekends.

There’s the cycling group and

more elderly and middle-aged

people. For some people it still is

a scary thing heading through

the tunnel, so for them, I think

it’s really cool that they can

come back to Lyttelton and take

a scenic route getting here,” she

said.

BIG PLANS: The Head to Head Walkway is a project to create a continuous

track around the coastline of Lyttelton Harbour from Godley Head to

Adderley Head.

Charteris Bay residents oppose all

Head to Head Walkway options

• By Louis Day

PROPOSED OPTIONS for

the Head to Head Walkway

were not well received by

Charteris Bay residents.

The walkway is a

recreation track being

developed in stages to

extend from Godley to

Adderley Heads.

The five options the city

council has put forward

for the section through

Charteris Bay were opposed

by the local residents

association.

All options included sections

of the walkway going

through Andersons Rd.

Charteris Bay Residents

Association secretary

Bill Studholme said they

wanted a coastal walkway.

“We think it should be a

coastal walkway. The city

council should bite the bullet

and it should not be proposing

going up Andersons Rd,

it should be running around

up the foreshore,” he said.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said they

would be considering all

possible routes, including

the coastal one proposed

v

by the association before

making a recommendation

to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board.

Mr Studholme thought

a walkway going through

Andersons Rd would pose

a safety risk to pedestrians.

“From time to time

speeding does occur on

Andersons Rd making it

unsafe.”

City council staff are currently

preparing a report

for the community board.

‘I would like to be a firefighter’

•From page 1

Arlo said he was the envy

of his classmates.

He was so excited for his

ride on the new fire truck

that he woke up almost three

hours before it was due to

arrive.

Xavier said he now wants

to be a firefighter.

“I would like to be a

firefighter one day because

I want to make sure people

are okay,” he said.

His father David Murphy

said it was an experience

both boys would remember

for the rest of their lives.

“It was amazing, the boys

had a great time. It was an

experience that you think

they will carry with them

throughout their whole

lives. My son Xavier was just

grinning ear to ear the whole

time,” he said.

After being picked up

from home at 8.30am,

they were taken for a drive

around the bay and given

full control of the sirens.

Xavier departed in the

new fire truck and Arlo in

the tanker.

“We drove around the bay

a couple of times tooting and

scaring their mates as they

were walking to school,” said

Governors Bay Volunteer

Fire Brigade chief Andrew

Norris.

The boys were given

walkie talkies so they could

communicate with each

other during the journey.

They were then taken up

to Summit Rd where they

had the chance to play with

the fire hoses before being

driven to school in style.

Principal Judy Cooke

described the moment they

arrived as “an absolute

scene.”

“It was wonderful. It was a

really big school event, it was

really exciting,” she said.

“They [the volunteer

brigade] are a massive part

of the community and they

give us heaps of support and

I think the other lovely thing

is that lots of the firefighters

are ex-students from here as

well.”

patchy. Chances that it’ll all be okay in the end - actually

pretty good..

I wasn’t enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I

learnt that my husband was having an affair..

The news of her husband’s infidelity comes as a nasty shock to

Jenny Reynolds, part-time building control officer and full-time

mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction

is relief, not anguish. What really hurts is her children’s unhappiness at the

break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family

farm.

This is the story of the year after Jenny’s old life falls apart; of family and

farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteenesque

neighbours. And of just perhaps a second chance at happiness.

HECTOR’S dolphins have an

Meeting to

discuss freedom

camping issues

• By Louis Day

PAGE 9

Fire rages, homes at risk

THE BANKS Peninsula

Community Board will meet

with the city council to discuss

resolving freedom camping issues

in Diamond Harbour.

Residents have been frustrated

by freedom campers throwing

their rubbish on the ground only

a few metres away from empty

bins at the Stoddart Point Reserve.

Congestion at the reserve means

it is also difficult to find a car park

in the morning before commuters

catch the ferry to work.

Freedom campers are currently

restricted to staying for up to two

nights in any 30-day period in

certified self-contained vehicles.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Pam Richardson

said they would be meeting

with the city council to discuss

what the best way forward was.

She was unsure when the meeting

would take place.

Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman Richard

Suggate said they did not want

to see a total ban on the reserve

but better regulation and tighter

restrictions.

“There is still a problem in

peak time in the summer causing

a lot of space issues for people

commuting. Adding more car

parks is not a good idea,” he said.

Is it time to clean

your fireplace?

Remember to let ash cool for at

least five days and only dispose

of it in the red bin.

Lay of the Land

Brent Forbes

Brent Forbes exhibits his latest work in a solo show

‘Lay of the Land’ at Little River Gallery which opens

Saturday June 1st.

Brent writes about his painting practice. “It’s like

driving somewhere. A shape, a curve in the road or a

certain piece of light comes to your attention then just

as quickly disappears in the rear-view mirror. Several

kilometres down the road the same thing happens

again, each new vista either forgotten or somehow

remembered, an accumulation of random memories.

Upon arrival you now have a loose set of images

in your mind – some can be tied to a certain

place, others cannot – but either way there has

been a conscious and unconscious engagement

with your surroundings.

Then you head into the studio and use these points

of reference to start working. But working is

something else. There is experimentation, conflict

and resolution. There is engagement and restraint.

There is a journey with its own rules.

Sometimes you end back up where you started, but

if you are lucky you can end up somewhere new –

discovered because you had an idea of where you

wanted to go but as you set off you threw the map

out the window.”

Walking in mum’s shoes

THE WHOLE family was

at home last week, but it

was not been a complete

holiday for me (well, you

know what I mean), as

Laura’s been recovering

from an elective surgery.

A gall bladder removal.

Add that to the appendectomy

she had during

pregnancy and she might

not have any organs left if

we have another kid.

It’s been great having

some bonus family time,

but poor Laura’s not been

able to pick Vittoria up at

all while in recovery.

With me home all the

time, it’s no big drama, but

you try explaining the situation

Laura could show bubs

It’s pretty sad for me

cuddled, Lord knows how

tough that is for Laura.

More cuddles for me I

guess.

last week and took the

Readers react to Rangiorabased

company Peninsula

Air Ltd’s plan to construct

a runway for seaplanes in

Lyttelton Harbour and take

people on scenic tours of

the peninsula

Trudy Mcbeath – I would

just like to say that I would be

quite happy to see seaplanes flying

around Lyttelton Harbour

and taking off/landing between

Rapaki and Quail Island.

I am a Diamond Harbour

resident (17 years) and I enjoy

avionics. I also think it would

be a superb experience for both

locals and tourists to enjoy the

view of the harbour from the air.

Bring it on!

Simon Graham – I support

seaplanes for Lyttelton Diamond

Harbour, and in fact all of

Christchurch, we have to make

things a bit more exciting, attract

tourists, not just from overseas,

but from other parts of New

Zealand.

Let’s show what a great place

Christchurch is. I strongly support

Seaplanes for Lyttelton

Harbour.

Geoff Hurrell – I would

like to add my support to the

proposal for a seaplane service in

Lyttelton harbour.

I reject the notion from the

Your Local Views

Diamond Harbour Community

Association that it would disadvantage

other users and also the

community board suggestion

that the noise created would be

intolerable.

Firstly, I agree that this proposal

should bring more tourists and

locals to the area and increase the

local economy and at the same

time add a point of difference to

our harbour.

Secondly, the amount of noise

that would arise from the occasional

take-off or landing of a

small aircraft would be negligible

when one considers the noise we

currently put up with.

For example pile-driving,

chainsaws, mowers, barking

dogs, boy racers, motor-cycle

club outings, and so on already

provide us with a cacophony

of noise and so one little plane

would not make much difference.

Besides, the aircraft operation

would only be in daylight and

likely only on fine weather days.

Lastly, I like planes and the

sight of one close by would be

most pleasing to me, not in the

slightest way annoying.

Julie Sims – My husband

and I have been living on the

waterfront above the beach in

Diamond Harbour since 1971.

We strongly support the plan

to fly seaplanes into Lyttelton

Harbour. We look forward to

seeing the venture succeed.

The Barr-Warwick family –

Our family wish to register

our strong opposition to the

application for sea planes to

land and take off from an

aerodrome in Lyttelton Harbour.

We live in the harbour basin

and have done so for almost 20

years. As regular users of the

harbour in kayaks and boats we

believe the aerodrome would

severely impact

on our enjoyment

of the area due to

noise pollution,

obstruction of open

water and disturbance

to wildlife

(especially birds).

The volcanic

formation of our

harbour acts as a

sound shell, and

loud motorised

vehicles such as low flying planes

and jet skis create significant

noise pollution across the entire

upper reaches of the harbour.

A plane taking off and landing

creates a much greater level of

noise than a plane flying overhead

with a consistent volume

and pitch.

Jet skis with their inconsistent

pitch due to acceleration and

deceleration have been banned in

the Sydney inner harbour for this

reason (disturbance of the peace).

Sea planes in Lyttelton Harbour

will have an even greater impact on

residents due to the surrounding

hills magnifying and refracting the

noise via acoustic resonance.

The harbour waterway is a

busy and well utilised recreation

area for residents of the greater

Christchurch area. Adding an

aerodrome to an already busy

body of water is dangerous

and will detract from the safe

and peaceful experience for all

harbour water users. Economic

benefits to local

residents from this

venture are limited.

We believe that the

recreational enjoyment

of the harbour

on both land and

sea, and the associated

benefits to our

well-being far outweigh

the proposed

financial benefits to

the seaplane operator

or enjoyment for tourists.

Approving this venture will

cause a significant reduction in

the peacefulness of the harbour,

and compromise the health and

well-being of those living in the

harbour and those using the harbour

basin for recreation.

The harbour and peninsula

are a short distance from other

airfields and tourists can already

access flights over the harbour for

sightseeing purposes.

If tourists want to experience

a water-based activity in the

harbour we suggest they visit

Lyttelton, spend some time

in this lovely local village and

take a trip on one of the many

environmentally-approved trips

that do not endanger our wildlife.

Use winter to check your boat and equipment

Navigation safety officer

Gary Manch gives us

an update from the

harbourmaster’s office

During the past 18 months

we have been in the process of

building a new work boat for the

harbourmaster’s office.

The vessel is called Marutau,

which translated means safety in

Māori.

The purpose of this vessel is to

ensure we keep up to speed with

buoys that have washed away in

storms and need replacement

due to wear and tear. It’s a neverending

job throughout the region

as we cover Lyttelton Harbour,

Akaroa, Port Levy, and all of the

Waitaki lakes.

Pirate’s Corner

Having this vessel also opens

up the possibility of completing

other work on the water within

our organisation. This will be

considered once we get our feet

on the ground and the correct

maritime approvals.

We are nearing the end of the

boating season and only the hardier

boaties will still be out there.

In fact, I know a couple of them,

one’s called Jimmy and the other

is Dave. Both are great guys and

have nice boats.

Jimmy’s boat is regularly

serviced, and he’s completed a

day skipper’s course. He always

checks the weather and makes

sure it’s safe to go out. He has a

waterproof cellphone and holds

a maritime VHF radio operator

Certificate. His life jackets have

been checked for safety. Jimmy

has been boating for years and

never had a problem, he’s a great

skipper and I would go out with

him any day.

As for Dave, he is a great mate,

but wow does he always seem to

have trouble. He was towed home

last season when his boat broke

down, and he had to sit for hours

waiting for a passing boat to wave

down.

This happened because his

cellphone was flat and he had

no VHF radio. Due to the rough

conditions he was seasick – he

forgot to check the marine forecast.

Would I go out with him?

Not until he brushes up on his

preparation.

On that note, spend some

time this winter making sure

your boat and equipment is safe

for next season. A day skipper’s

course is a good way to ensure

you have the tools to keep you

and your crew safe on the water.

Or you may wish to earn a

maritime VHF radio operator

certificate.

Injury-hit Sumner face beach battle

SPORT

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO SHIELDS will be on the

line when Sumner play New

Brighton in the battle of the

beaches at St Leonards Square.

The annual

grudge

match was

given extra

meaning at

the weekend

after New

Brighton

defeated

Martin

Dodgson

Marist

Albion 24-17

to claim the

DCL Shield.

Their first defence will be

against Sumner on Saturday.

The shield is played for in a

challenge format each week

throughout the premier metro

rugby competition.

The Falton Shield – which is

played for annually when the

two seaside clubs meet – will

also be on the line. Sumner won

the Falton Shield in May last

year when they defeated New

Brighton 61-14.

Over the weekend, Sumner’s

resurgence and run of three

straight wins was brought to an

end when Burnside grabbed a

late try to take the spoils 24-29

at Burnside Park.

Sumner led 24-22 with less

than 5min remaining before

Burnside converted a try. From

the restart, Sumner gained

possession and spent a number

of phases battering Burnside’s

5m line before the hosts were

awarded a penalty.

Once again the Sumner

forward pack showed their

usual dominance. However, that

was nullified midway through

the match when the scrums

went uncontested due to an

injury to a Burnside prop.

“They only stripped 21

players, so they only have a

hooker reserve on the bench, so

if one of their props goes down

injured they go to uncontested,”

said Sumner coach Martin

Dodgson.

Sumner also finished the

match with a lofty injury toll.

A number of injuries to the

Ladies golf champs

THE CHARTERIS Bay

Golf Club hosted the annual

Banks Peninsula ladies golf

championships with 36 players

from the Akaroa, Tai Tapu and

Charteris Bay clubs.

The Kinloch Cup for the best

nett overall score was won by

Sharon Screen from Charteris

Bay.

Other winners:

•Silver division best gross –

Carol Bates, Tai Tapu, 1; Chris

Brodie, Charteris Bay, 2.

•Best nett – Faye Narbey,

Akaroa, 1; Fran Anderson,

Akaroa 2.

CHALLENGE: Sumner will put the Falton Shield on the line when they face New Brighton on

Saturday in the battle of the beaches.

•Stableford – Sue Thurston,

Akaroa.

•Bronze one division best gross

– Sharon Screen, Charteris Bay, 1;

Pam Brewer, Tai Tapu 2.

•Best nett – Denise Whitbread,

Charteris Bay, 2; Julie Livesey, Tai

•Stableford – Jeanette Drinnan,

Tai Tapu.

•Bronze two division best gross

Janet Nicholls, Tai Tapu, 2.

•Best nett – Jan Barkle,

•Stableford – Sue Nicholl,

Charteris Bay.

backline saw the side use four

different players at halfback

during the loss to Burnside.

With regular halfback

Hayden O’Donnell unavailable

due to injury, first-five Josh Toy

got the start in the No 9 jersey,

while Alistair Crossdale started

at No 10. However, Crossdale

pulled a groin muscle during

the first play of the game, which

forced Toy to move to first-five

and Zack Gray – who played

80min for the reserve side

earlier in the day – to fill the

void at halfback.

Midway through the second

half, Gray was substituted

understandably after a

combined 120min of rugby.

Winger Piers Martin then took

the reins. However, a shoulder

injury saw him leave the field,

which meant centre Willy

Saukuru ended the match at

halfback.

The injury toll means coach

Martin Dodgson will be forced

to use the full depth of his

squad just to put together a

backline for the New Brighton

match. “We’re going to have to

look at whether we play division

two because it’s going to be

basically the whole backline

which would have to play two

games,” said Dodgson.

A large crowd is expected for

Saturday’s battle of the beaches

match. Sumner have organised

a temporary grandstand for the

match, which they used at their

recent club day.

Kicks off is at 2.45pm.

Tuala, Tawake

in wider Canty

training squad

SUMNER forwards Mathew

Tuala (above) and Samu

Tawake have been included in

Canterbury’s wider training

group ahead of the Mitre 10

Cup season.

It is the second consecutive

year prop Tawake has

been selected in coach Joe

Maddock’s wider squad,

while No 8 Tawake has made

the group for the first time

as they look to gain a spot in

the final squad ahead of the

competition, which starts

on August 8. They are set to

join 38 other players from 13

clubs around the region at the

first wider training session at

Rugby Park tonight.

“The next few weeks is

a chance for the coaching

group to bring these young

players into our environment

to train, assess where they

are at, and provide them with

a development opportunity

to complement their club

season,” said Maddock. “Some

of these players have been in

and around Rugby Park before

as part of our development

programmes and teams, but

for others, this will be a new

experience and an exciting

opportunity.”

Taylors Mistake surfers to

vie for world junior titles

ESTELLA Hungerford and Ava

Henderson will represent New

Zealand at the ISA world junior

surfing championship later in

the year.

The Taylors Mistake pair have

been named in the 12-strong

New Zealand junior squad to

travel to the championships.

The location for the

championships is expected to be

named in the coming weeks.

Estella is one of three surfers

named in the NZ under-18

girls team, while Ava is one

of three girls in the under-16

team.

Last year, Estella was part of

the New Zealand team which

finished 12th in the 44-team

competition at Huntington

Beach, California.

Meanwhile, Ava will make her

first appearance at the event.

Ava, 14, has burst onto the

national scene following a

standout summer which saw her

win the under-16 girls category

of the national Billabong Grom

Series.

She has competed well

beyond her years, winning a

number of nationally ranked

under-18 and under-20

competitions.

Estella, 17, has also been in a

roof diesel is still a viable option

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I HAVEN’T quite worked out

why New Zealand buyers shy

away from diesel-powered cars.

There are many reasons why

diesel power is preferable, and if

you take into account that most

of the market leading sellers here

are diesel-fed, notably double-cab

utility vehicles, then I’m lost to

explain why that popularity hasn’t

channelled to diesel cars and

SUVs, particularly cars – sedans

and coupes.

Many of the mainstream

manufacturers are downsizing the

diesel line-up, however, many of

the European brands still see the

worth of offering diesel in family

vehicles, and if the Mercedes-

Benz C220d is anything to go by

I can see why it is incorporated

into the five-car C-Class sedan

mix.

The C220d has a 2-litre

turbocharged engine which has

some amazing figures in terms of

power output, performance and

economy.

It is rated with 143kW and

400Nm power outputs, that’s

strong enough to claim a

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time of 6.9sec. The torque flow

is strong from almost nowhere,

and it delivers right through to

the top end of the mid-range.

That force delivers an immensely

satisfying driving feel, it is the feel

that I’ve described many times

in my columns and for anyone

contemplating buying diesel, it is

wonderful to feel from under the

accelerator pedal.

While it has that amazing

performance, the C220d also

has incredible fuel usage figures.

Mercedes-Benz claims an

amazing 4.7-litre per 100km

combined cycle average. That

equates to around 60mpg in

imperial terms, and if you are on

a long highway cruise it will sip

fuel at the rate of just 4.2l/100km

(67mpg) at 100km/h, the engine

just barely turning over at around

1200rpm.

I took the evaluation car on

my usual Malvern Hills loop

and enjoyed its freedom on the

open road, it steers beautifully

and provides all the satisfaction

you get from a rear-wheel-drive

car. Power is channelled in that

direction through a nine-speed

automatic gearbox.

The transmission is a stunner,

so smooth are the changes it’s

almost as if there are no changes

bar the needle shift on the

tachometer. Of course, there are

driver selectable steering-wheelmounted

paddles, but I never

used them a lot, far preferring

to let the gearbox do its own

thinking, the engine/transmission

combination never disappoints.

When pushed into a series

of quick corners the C220d

responds with beautiful balance

and directional control.

Grip is high through sport

specification 19in Continental

tyres and with clever traction

control devices there is little

chance the rear would step out

under heavy power provocation.

There are a series of corners,

that I reserve solely for when I am

evaluating rear-wheel-drive cars,

and the C220d didn’t disappoint,

it lunges out of a corner apex with

the strength you can only get with

turbocharged diesel power, it is

infectious, and you also have the

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

C220d, $75,800

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 4.7l/100km

satisfaction of knowing that when

it comes time to slow for the next

corner, huge brakes take care of

slowing speed. The pedal feels

tight and solid underfoot.

The C220d is the epitome of

the sports sedan market, the

figures all stack up, and it feels

just so right to be in. At $75,800

I guess it has to have a lot on

offer, but you do get a lot of kit

in the car, and if you think of

the quality within the way it is

built and the amount of safety

features and items for comfort

and convenience, then it is money

well spent, and the satisfaction

that you get from every drive

makes it a very desirable

purchase.

If you are C-Class buyer yet still

can’t quite get your head around

the complications of diesel with the

road user charges Kiwi diesel car

buyers have to face, bear in mind

the C-Class is an entire range from

four-cylinder to V8 petrol.

As much as I like the C63S with

its huge V8 power and sound,

the diesel is the car for me, it

represents all the amazing things

you can glean from the engine –

economy, low emissions, and that

fabulous mid-range grunt.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

Mr Mora said the community
