hearing<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

REDCLIFFS residents have<br />

voiced their opposition at a liquor<br />

licensing hearing over plans for<br />

a fine wine and spirits store on<br />

Main Rd.<br />

Nine people spoke against the<br />

plan, 46 made written submissions<br />

and a petition containing 97<br />

names was presented at the twoday<br />

hearing last week.<br />

Rizak Enterprises Ltd has applied<br />

for an off-licence at 1/87<br />

Main Rd to operate from Monday<br />

to Sunday, 9am to 10pm.<br />

Police, a city council alcohol<br />

licensing inspector and the Canterbury<br />

District Health Board’s<br />

medical officer of health who attended<br />

the hearing did not oppose<br />

the fine wine and spirits store.<br />

The hearings panel is now considering<br />

the submissions.<br />

A city council spokeswoman<br />

said it was unclear when they<br />

would come to a decision.<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> regulations likely breached<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

CRUISE SHIPS in Akaroa<br />

could be operating in breach of<br />

harbour regulations – and with<br />

the knowledge of Environment<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Naval architect Harry<br />

Stronach has been investigating<br />

the issue for months and says<br />

cruise ships in<br />

Akaroa were<br />

likely to be<br />

in breach of<br />

regulations and<br />

disturbing the<br />

seabed.<br />

Harry<br />

The Regional<br />

Coastal<br />

Environment<br />

Plan for the<br />

Canterbury region limits seabed<br />

disturbance to a total of 50 m3<br />

in any three-month period,<br />

for any coastal area outside an<br />

operational port.<br />

Akaroa <strong>Harbour</strong> is not classed<br />

as an operational port.<br />

Mr Stronach said any ship<br />

of over 40,000 gross tonnage,<br />

which is 90 per cent of cruise<br />

ships visiting Akaroa, was likely<br />

to cause a seabed disturbance at<br />

least 10 times the permitted level,<br />

per visit.<br />

Smaller ships<br />

expected to ease<br />

load on Akaroa<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

DOUBLE CRUISE ship days will<br />

continue in Akaroa next season.<br />

The schedule for the <strong>2019</strong>-2020<br />

season has 13 double cruise ship days<br />

and one triple cruise ship day.<br />

January 4 is expected to be largest<br />

double cruise ship day, with 7892<br />

passengers and crew estimated.<br />

Ninety-one cruise ships are expected<br />

this coming season, one less<br />

than the last season.<br />

Akaroa Civic Trust chairman<br />

Mike Norris was appalled by the<br />

schedule.<br />

“The fourth of January is during<br />

a week when all the batch owners<br />

are in residence in Akaroa and the<br />

logistics of that combined with the<br />

cruise ships are horrifying to think<br />

of, the stress on resources it will have,<br />

sewerage being one thing,” he said.<br />

Deputy <strong>May</strong>or and Banks<br />

Peninsula councillor Andrew<br />

Turner saw the schedule for the<br />

coming season as an improvement<br />

from last season.<br />

“My understanding is that a number<br />

of those cruise ship days involve<br />

double cruise ships but some of<br />

them involve smaller ships,” he said.<br />

Cr Turner said Christchurch NZ<br />

was continuing to work with the<br />

cruise ship industry to avoid double<br />

cruise ship days involving two large<br />

ships in the future.<br />

Controversial liquor store plan met<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

A plan for a liquor store<br />

in Redcliffs went before<br />

the district licensing<br />

committee last week. Louis<br />

Day reports<br />

THE POLICE, the city council’s<br />

district licensing inspector and<br />

the Canterbury District Health<br />

Board’s medical officer of health<br />

all have no issue with the liquor<br />

store planned for the Main Rd<br />

shopping area.<br />

But a number of Redcliffs<br />

residents don’t want it.<br />

Forty-six<br />

made written<br />

submissions<br />

opposing the<br />

plan, while<br />

nine gave oral<br />

submissions<br />

at the hearing<br />

and a petition<br />

Neralie<br />

containing<br />

97 names was<br />

presented to<br />

Brittenden<br />

the hearings panel.<br />

Rizak Enterprises Ltd wants<br />

to put the off-licence in at 1/87<br />

Main Rd and operate from<br />

Monday to Sunday, 9am to<br />

10pm.<br />

Redcliffs resident of 23<br />

years Neralie Brittenden’s<br />

closing statement during her<br />

oral submission was met with<br />

applause and cheers from the<br />

public gallery.<br />

“There is a billboard that<br />

says say nope to dope, equally<br />

to that I say nah to liqaaa,” she<br />

said.<br />

She is concerned about the<br />

impact a liquor outlet could have<br />

on youth in the area. “I have<br />

12 grandchildren and I’m very<br />

mindful of the social issues that<br />

alcohol presents while kids are<br />

growing up,” she told the threeperson<br />

panel, chaired by Cindy<br />

Robinson.<br />

“I view it as an unnecessary<br />

influence on our young people.”<br />

This was a concern for many<br />

objectors.<br />

Rizak Enterprises Ltd sole<br />

director and shareholder Juraj<br />

Singh felt he was experienced<br />

enough to mitigate alcohol harm<br />

in the community. Mr Singh<br />

referred to the success of his<br />

Thirsty Liquor outlet in Papanui,<br />

which he has run for three years.<br />

“The application to renew the<br />

licence was not opposed by the<br />

reporting agencies, nor were<br />

there any objectors. I have good<br />

relationships within the local<br />

community with both residents<br />

and business owners. The good<br />

CHANGE OF<br />

SCENERY: A<br />

liquor store<br />

is planned<br />

for Main<br />

Rd, which<br />

is currently<br />

occupied by<br />

the Bloom<br />

Room<br />

Florist.<br />

order and amenity of the vicinity<br />

has not been reduced in any<br />

way,” he said.<br />

Counsel Peter Egden does not<br />

think what his client is proposing<br />

poses more of a threat than the<br />

Redcliffs New World alcohol<br />

section.<br />

“What Mr Singh proposes<br />

is far better than the exposure<br />

to alcohol at the supermarket,<br />

where a child can go to the<br />

supermarket unaccompanied<br />

and go up and down the liquor<br />

aisle unattended. They won’t even<br />

be able to go into Mr Singh’s<br />

store,” he said.<br />

Mr Singh originally proposed<br />

to operate the business under<br />

the Thirsty Liquor franchise,<br />

but decided to resubmit his<br />

application as an independent<br />

fine wine and spirits store.<br />

Mr Singh said there would not<br />

be the outdoor advertising that<br />

characterises a typical bottle<br />

store and he would ensure the<br />

windows would be frosted to<br />

the height of the shelving so the<br />

alcohol would not be visible from<br />

the street.<br />

Sumner Redcliffs Anglican<br />

assistant curate<br />

John Fox<br />

labelled the<br />

application as<br />

“incomplete and<br />

inconsistent.”<br />

Dr Fox<br />

questioned<br />

whether a fine<br />

wine and spirits<br />

store should be<br />

selling RTDs.<br />

Peter Egden<br />

Mr Singh said<br />

not all RTDs are bad.<br />

“Old aged people love RTDs,<br />

like Gordon’s gin and tonic.”<br />

Dr Fox did not think Mr Singh<br />

would be a “good neighbour.”<br />

He referred to when Mr Singh<br />

received a six-week suspension of<br />

his manager’s certificate in 2011<br />

for selling alcohol to an underage<br />

person.<br />

with opposition<br />

Dr Fox thought Mr Singh’s<br />

application failed to cater<br />

for Redcliffs “vulnerable<br />

community.”<br />

“We have substantial areas<br />

where people are still recovering<br />

from the earthquakes and we<br />

obviously had the terrorist attack.<br />

What we would have liked to<br />

see is a much more responsible<br />

approach to alcohol harm.”<br />

Mr Singh’s application was also<br />

criticised by Redcliffs resident<br />

Jackie Jones.<br />

She questioned why Mr Singh<br />

did not include tobacco in his<br />

application when he had full<br />

intentions of selling it in his store.<br />

Mr Singh said he simply forgot<br />

to include it in his application.<br />

“Everyone sometimes forgets,<br />

when you get ready you forget a<br />

watch or something,” he said.<br />

Ms Jones responded: “This is a<br />

legal document and this is what<br />

really concerns me. A process<br />

must be seen to be followed.”<br />

Redcliffs resident Dan<br />

Tremewan was concerned the<br />

instalment of a liquor outlet<br />

would increase the amount<br />

of disorderly behaviour on<br />

Beachville Reserve.<br />

Mr Tremewan said he would<br />

often come across piles of soiled<br />

clothing and inebriated people<br />

sleeping on the reserve.<br />

He said he had also been met<br />

Dan Tremewan<br />

with threats of violence when<br />

asking people keep the noise<br />

down late at night.<br />

“There are already too many<br />

problems on the reserve and we<br />

don’t want to see alcohol access<br />

extended and the problems<br />

increase,” he said.<br />

Mr Egden questioned whether<br />

Mr Tremewan would challenge<br />

New World’s liquor licence when<br />

it came under review.<br />

Mr Tremewan responded: “No<br />

teenagers I know go and drink<br />

pinot gris, they go and drink<br />

RTDs.”<br />

A TRIAL is under way to see<br />

if roadside plantings can help<br />

reduce the amount of sediment<br />

ending up in Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Banks Peninsula’s hilly terrain<br />

is covered by a windblown<br />

sediment, which when exposed<br />

to rain and wind, is easily<br />

eroded and washes into the<br />

many small streams that feed<br />

into the harbour.<br />

The Whakaraupō Rd<br />

cutting trial is looking at<br />

ways to lessen the amount of<br />

sediment reaching the harbour’s<br />

waterways because it’s having a<br />

negative impact on the health of<br />

the harbour.<br />

“The harbour’s water quality<br />

is deteriorating as a result of too<br />

much sediment getting in,” said<br />

city council head of strategic<br />

policy Emma Davis.<br />

By encouraging vegetation to<br />

grow and cover the bare ground<br />

and slopes beside the roads, the<br />

team behind the trial hope to<br />

dramatically reduce the amount<br />

of sediment getting into the<br />

harbour.<br />

“Our team are trialling<br />

various ways to use vegetation<br />

to cover the bare soil and reduce<br />

roadside erosion. This includes<br />

applying a mixture of water,<br />

REPAIRS TO CLOCK TOWERS<br />

Work on the Scarborough Clock<br />

Tower is expected to begin in July.<br />

The clock tower will have the sill<br />

replaced and recast. The archways<br />

and steps will also be repaired. The<br />

repairs will be done in conjunction<br />

with the New Brighton Clock<br />

Tower as part of the city council’s<br />

cost-saving strategy. Both clock<br />

towers will have concrete and<br />

corrosion treatments applied to the<br />

entire structure.<br />

WHARF SUBMISSIONS<br />

Public submissions for the new<br />

Akaroa wharf are now open. The<br />

current wharf had a structural<br />

condition assessment in late 2018<br />

which identified it was reaching<br />

the end of its useful life. This is<br />

due to the declining condition of<br />

its hardwood timbers, particularly<br />

those below water. Public<br />

submissions for the new wharf<br />

close on June 26 and can be made<br />

on the city council’s Have Your<br />

Say page.<br />

LYTTELTON businesses are<br />

enjoying the benefits of a rise<br />

in visitors since Sumner Rd<br />

reopened two months ago.<br />

The road connecting Lyttelton<br />

and Sumner was closed to<br />

traffic for eight years following<br />

extensive damage in the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

It reopened at the end of March<br />

after contractors spent two-anda-half<br />

years working to reduce<br />

rockfall risk and then repairing<br />

and reinstating the route.<br />

City council traffic counts on<br />

Evans Pass Rd at the bottom<br />

of the hill in Sumner show a<br />

50 per cent increase in traffic<br />

on weekdays. On weekends,<br />

the average number of vehicles<br />

more than doubled in the two<br />

weeks after the road reopened,<br />

compared to the previous two<br />

weeks.<br />

The average number of vehicles<br />

on a weekday grew from 1128 to<br />

1750; on Saturdays it rose from<br />

1<strong>29</strong>2 to <strong>29</strong>51; and on Sundays it<br />

increased from 1455 to 3045.<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> Business<br />

Association chairman Rob<br />

de Thier, who owns Lyttelton<br />

SuperValue, said there has been<br />

a dramatic pick-up in customers<br />

for local businesses, particularly<br />

in the hospitality sector.<br />

“It’s been good, especially<br />

for the coffee shops and bars.<br />

They’ve seen a noticeable increase<br />

since the road opened. With<br />

the supermarket it’s been steady<br />

instead of the normal drop-off we<br />

would have going into April and<br />

<strong>May</strong>. We haven’t had that yet,” he<br />

said. “We’ve also noticed what<br />

we call the ‘lycra brigade’ arrive<br />

en masse. After biking over the<br />

hill, they’ll stop here at the end<br />

BOOMING: Rob de Thier says Lyttelton has<br />

been noticeably busier since Sumner Rd<br />

reopened in March.<br />

Sumner Rd reopening helps businesses<br />

of their ride to have coffees and<br />

meals.”<br />

Lyttelton Coffee Culture owner<br />

Leona Cooper said the upturn<br />

was “absolutely noticeable”.<br />

“We’ve seen an increase every<br />

day, not just on weekends.<br />

There’s the cycling group and<br />

more elderly and middle-aged<br />

people. For some people it still is<br />

a scary thing heading through<br />

the tunnel, so for them, I think<br />

it’s really cool that they can<br />

come back to Lyttelton and take<br />

a scenic route getting here,” she<br />

said.<br />

BIG PLANS: The Head to Head Walkway is a project to create a continuous<br />

track around the coastline of Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> from Godley Head to<br />

Adderley Head.<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> residents oppose all<br />

Head to Head Walkway options<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

PROPOSED OPTIONS for<br />

the Head to Head Walkway<br />

were not well received by<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> residents.<br />

The walkway is a<br />

recreation track being<br />

developed in stages to<br />

extend from Godley to<br />

Adderley Heads.<br />

The five options the city<br />

council has put forward<br />

for the section through<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> were opposed<br />

by the local residents<br />

association.<br />

All options included sections<br />

of the walkway going<br />

through Andersons Rd.<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> Residents<br />

Association secretary<br />

Bill Studholme said they<br />

wanted a coastal walkway.<br />

“We think it should be a<br />

coastal walkway. The city<br />

council should bite the bullet<br />

and it should not be proposing<br />

going up Andersons Rd,<br />

it should be running around<br />

up the foreshore,” he said.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge said they<br />

would be considering all<br />

possible routes, including<br />

the coastal one proposed<br />

v<br />

by the association before<br />

making a recommendation<br />

to the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board.<br />

Mr Studholme thought<br />

a walkway going through<br />

Andersons Rd would pose<br />

a safety risk to pedestrians.<br />

“From time to time<br />

speeding does occur on<br />

Andersons Rd making it<br />

unsafe.”<br />

City council staff are currently<br />

preparing a report<br />

for the community board.<br />

board is expected to be<br />

made mid this year.<br />

‘I would like to be a firefighter’<br />

•From page 1<br />

Arlo said he was the envy<br />

of his classmates.<br />

He was so excited for his<br />

ride on the new fire truck<br />

that he woke up almost three<br />

hours before it was due to<br />

arrive.<br />

Xavier said he now wants<br />

to be a firefighter.<br />

“I would like to be a<br />

firefighter one day because<br />

I want to make sure people<br />

are okay,” he said.<br />

His father David Murphy<br />

said it was an experience<br />

both boys would remember<br />

for the rest of their lives.<br />

“It was amazing, the boys<br />

had a great time. It was an<br />

experience that you think<br />

they will carry with them<br />

throughout their whole<br />

lives. My son Xavier was just<br />

grinning ear to ear the whole<br />

time,” he said.<br />

After being picked up<br />

from home at 8.30am,<br />

they were taken for a drive<br />

around the bay and given<br />

full control of the sirens.<br />

Xavier departed in the<br />

new fire truck and Arlo in<br />

the tanker.<br />

“We drove around the bay<br />

a couple of times tooting and<br />

scaring their mates as they<br />

were walking to school,” said<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade chief Andrew<br />

Norris.<br />

The boys were given<br />

walkie talkies so they could<br />

communicate with each<br />

other during the journey.<br />

They were then taken up<br />

to Summit Rd where they<br />

had the chance to play with<br />

the fire hoses before being<br />

driven to school in style.<br />

Principal Judy Cooke<br />

described the moment they<br />

arrived as “an absolute<br />

scene.”<br />

“It was wonderful. It was a<br />

really big school event, it was<br />

really exciting,” she said.<br />

“They [the volunteer<br />

brigade] are a massive part<br />

of the community and they<br />

give us heaps of support and<br />

I think the other lovely thing<br />

is that lots of the firefighters<br />

are ex-students from here as<br />

well.”<br />

When It All Went to Custard<br />

by Danielle Hawkins<br />

Odds of saving marriage - slim. Farming expertise -<br />

patchy. Chances that it’ll all be okay in the end - actually<br />

pretty good..<br />

I wasn’t enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I<br />

learnt that my husband was having an affair..<br />

The news of her husband’s infidelity comes as a nasty shock to<br />

Jenny Reynolds, part-time building control officer and full-time<br />

mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction<br />

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

break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family<br />

farm.<br />

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

farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteenesque<br />

neighbours. And of just perhaps a second chance at happiness.<br />

HECTOR’S dolphins have an<br />

study.<br />

The study by Market Economics<br />

eco-tourism brings almost<br />

$25 million to the New Zealand<br />

economy each year, with another<br />

$3-$6 million<br />

The total<br />

estimated to<br />

be between<br />

10-15,000 dolphins and is expected<br />

per cent over the last 30 years.<br />

Dolphins important to economy – study<br />

ASSET: Hector’s dolphin related eco-tourism brings almost $25 million to the New Zealand<br />

economy each year, with another $3-$6 million in associated tourist activity.<br />

would reduce the rate of<br />

decline.<br />

Black Cat Cruises chairman<br />

Paul Bingham said the declining<br />

hector’s dolphin population<br />

posed a real threat to businesses.<br />

“The presence of the<br />

hector’s dolphins sustains ecotourism,<br />

so we can assume fewer<br />

dolphins are likely to mean less<br />

eco-tourism activity,” he said.<br />

“We are one of seven ecotourism<br />

operators that rely on<br />

the presence of the hector’s<br />

dolphins to attract tourists. We<br />

all feel very protective of these<br />

very special mammals and the<br />

unique contribution they make<br />

to our lives, our culture and our<br />

Meeting to<br />

discuss freedom<br />

camping issues<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

THE BANKS Peninsula<br />

Community Board will meet<br />

with the city council to discuss<br />

resolving freedom camping issues<br />

in Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Residents have been frustrated<br />

by freedom campers throwing<br />

their rubbish on the ground only<br />

a few metres away from empty<br />

bins at the Stoddart Point Reserve.<br />

Congestion at the reserve means<br />

it is also difficult to find a car park<br />

in the morning before commuters<br />

catch the ferry to work.<br />

Freedom campers are currently<br />

restricted to staying for up to two<br />

nights in any 30-day period in<br />

certified self-contained vehicles.<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board chairwoman Pam Richardson<br />

said they would be meeting<br />

with the city council to discuss<br />

what the best way forward was.<br />

She was unsure when the meeting<br />

would take place.<br />

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

Association chairman Richard<br />

Suggate said they did not want<br />

to see a total ban on the reserve<br />

but better regulation and tighter<br />

restrictions.<br />

“There is still a problem in<br />

peak time in the summer causing<br />

a lot of space issues for people<br />

commuting. Adding more car<br />

parks is not a good idea,” he said.<br />

Is it time to clean<br />

your fireplace?<br />

Remember to let ash cool for at<br />

least five days and only dispose<br />

of it in the red bin.<br />

Lay of the Land<br />

Brent Forbes<br />

Brent Forbes exhibits his latest work in a solo show<br />

‘Lay of the Land’ at Little River Gallery which opens<br />

Saturday June 1st.<br />

Brent writes about his painting practice. “It’s like<br />

driving somewhere. A shape, a curve in the road or a<br />

certain piece of light comes to your attention then just<br />

as quickly disappears in the rear-view mirror. Several<br />

kilometres down the road the same thing happens<br />

again, each new vista either forgotten or somehow<br />

remembered, an accumulation of random memories.<br />

Upon arrival you now have a loose set of images<br />

in your mind – some can be tied to a certain<br />

place, others cannot – but either way there has<br />

been a conscious and unconscious engagement<br />

with your surroundings.<br />

Then you head into the studio and use these points<br />

of reference to start working. But working is<br />

something else. There is experimentation, conflict<br />

and resolution. There is engagement and restraint.<br />

There is a journey with its own rules.<br />

Sometimes you end back up where you started, but<br />

if you are lucky you can end up somewhere new –<br />

discovered because you had an idea of where you<br />

wanted to go but as you set off you threw the map<br />

out the window.”<br />

Walking in mum’s shoes<br />

THE WHOLE family was<br />

at home last week, but it<br />

was not been a complete<br />

holiday for me (well, you<br />

know what I mean), as<br />

Laura’s been recovering<br />

from an elective surgery.<br />

A gall bladder removal.<br />

Add that to the appendectomy<br />

she had during<br />

pregnancy and she might<br />

not have any organs left if<br />

we have another kid.<br />

It’s been great having<br />

some bonus family time,<br />

but poor Laura’s not been<br />

able to pick Vittoria up at<br />

all while in recovery.<br />

With me home all the<br />

time, it’s no big drama, but<br />

you try explaining the situation<br />

to a one-year-old.<br />

Laura could show bubs<br />

her boo-boos all she likes,<br />

it’s not going to sink in unless<br />

there’s a baby-friendly<br />

picture book on keyhole<br />

surgery out there.<br />

It’s pretty sad for me<br />

seeing Vittoria reaching<br />

up to her mummy and<br />

crying to be picked up and<br />

cuddled, Lord knows how<br />

tough that is for Laura.<br />

More cuddles for me I<br />

guess.<br />

She was off work<br />

last week and took the<br />

opportunity to come to<br />

some of the baby activities<br />

she’s missed out on.<br />

In less surgical matters,<br />

Vittoria took her first steps<br />

in her mum’s shoes last<br />

week.<br />

Literally.<br />

She’s started getting<br />

interested in our shoes and<br />

occasionally goes and grabs<br />

us some to put on if we are<br />

sitting on the couch. They<br />

may or may not be a matching<br />

pair.<br />

Well, after a few sessions<br />

playing shoe shop assistant,<br />

she decided to try them<br />

on herself. Her first go<br />

on Sunday saw her walk<br />

around the lounge in one<br />

of Laura’s sneakers. Which<br />

was on backwards.<br />

next level and wore Laura’s<br />

Ugg boots. I helped her put<br />

the second one on.<br />

They were a bit harder to<br />

walk in and she kept falling<br />

over, until one fell off<br />

and the other one turned<br />

around backwards.<br />

Then she could happily<br />

walk around the lounge<br />

until Laura needed her<br />

slippers back.<br />

Board chairwoman<br />

Rev McLister said LPC<br />

indicated they were going<br />

LPC strategic engagement<br />

said discussions were still<br />

ongoing.<br />

Rev McLister thought<br />

this was a step in the right<br />

direction.<br />

are considering introducing<br />

a voluntary levy, they would<br />

be the first port in the country<br />

to do so,” he said.<br />

Cr Turner also saw the<br />

voluntary levy as a step in<br />

the right direction.<br />

“Lyttelton has always<br />

afforded a good quality of<br />

welcome to seafarers and<br />

we think that should be<br />

able to continue as best as<br />

possible,” he said.<br />

Discussions will<br />

continue when Rev<br />

McLister meets with LPC<br />

again tomorrow.

BAY HARBOUR<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

Readers react to Rangiorabased<br />

company Peninsula<br />

Air Ltd’s plan to construct<br />

a runway for seaplanes in<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> and take<br />

people on scenic tours of<br />

the peninsula<br />

Trudy Mcbeath – I would<br />

just like to say that I would be<br />

quite happy to see seaplanes flying<br />

around Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

and taking off/landing between<br />

Rapaki and Quail Island.<br />

I am a Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

resident (17 years) and I enjoy<br />

avionics. I also think it would<br />

be a superb experience for both<br />

locals and tourists to enjoy the<br />

view of the harbour from the air.<br />

Bring it on!<br />

Simon Graham – I support<br />

seaplanes for Lyttelton Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>, and in fact all of<br />

Christchurch, we have to make<br />

things a bit more exciting, attract<br />

tourists, not just from overseas,<br />

but from other parts of New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Let’s show what a great place<br />

Christchurch is. I strongly support<br />

Seaplanes for Lyttelton<br />

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

Geoff Hurrell – I would<br />

like to add my support to the<br />

proposal for a seaplane service in<br />

Lyttelton harbour.<br />

I reject the notion from the<br />

Your Local Views<br />

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

Association that it would disadvantage<br />

other users and also the<br />

community board suggestion<br />

that the noise created would be<br />

intolerable.<br />

Firstly, I agree that this proposal<br />

should bring more tourists and<br />

locals to the area and increase the<br />

local economy and at the same<br />

time add a point of difference to<br />

our harbour.<br />

Secondly, the amount of noise<br />

that would arise from the occasional<br />

take-off or landing of a<br />

small aircraft would be negligible<br />

when one considers the noise we<br />

currently put up with.<br />

For example pile-driving,<br />

chainsaws, mowers, barking<br />

dogs, boy racers, motor-cycle<br />

club outings, and so on already<br />

provide us with a cacophony<br />

of noise and so one little plane<br />

would not make much difference.<br />

Besides, the aircraft operation<br />

would only be in daylight and<br />

likely only on fine weather days.<br />

Lastly, I like planes and the<br />

sight of one close by would be<br />

most pleasing to me, not in the<br />

slightest way annoying.<br />

Julie Sims – My husband<br />

and I have been living on the<br />

waterfront above the beach in<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> since 1971.<br />

We strongly support the plan<br />

to fly seaplanes into Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>. We look forward to<br />

seeing the venture succeed.<br />

The Barr-Warwick family –<br />

Our family wish to register<br />

our strong opposition to the<br />

application for sea planes to<br />

land and take off from an<br />

aerodrome in Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

We live in the harbour basin<br />

and have done so for almost 20<br />

years. As regular users of the<br />

harbour in kayaks and boats we<br />

believe the aerodrome would<br />

severely impact<br />

on our enjoyment<br />

of the area due to<br />

noise pollution,<br />

obstruction of open<br />

water and disturbance<br />

to wildlife<br />

(especially birds).<br />

The volcanic<br />

formation of our<br />

harbour acts as a<br />

sound shell, and<br />

loud motorised<br />

vehicles such as low flying planes<br />

and jet skis create significant<br />

noise pollution across the entire<br />

upper reaches of the harbour.<br />

A plane taking off and landing<br />

creates a much greater level of<br />

noise than a plane flying overhead<br />

with a consistent volume<br />

and pitch.<br />

Jet skis with their inconsistent<br />

pitch due to acceleration and<br />

deceleration have been banned in<br />

the Sydney inner harbour for this<br />

reason (disturbance of the peace).<br />

Sea planes in Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

will have an even greater impact on<br />

residents due to the surrounding<br />

hills magnifying and refracting the<br />

noise via acoustic resonance.<br />

The harbour waterway is a<br />

busy and well utilised recreation<br />

area for residents of the greater<br />

Christchurch area. Adding an<br />

aerodrome to an already busy<br />

body of water is dangerous<br />

and will detract from the safe<br />

and peaceful experience for all<br />

harbour water users. Economic<br />

benefits to local<br />

residents from this<br />

venture are limited.<br />

We believe that the<br />

recreational enjoyment<br />

of the harbour<br />

on both land and<br />

sea, and the associated<br />

benefits to our<br />

well-being far outweigh<br />

the proposed<br />

financial benefits to<br />

the seaplane operator<br />

or enjoyment for tourists.<br />

Approving this venture will<br />

cause a significant reduction in<br />

the peacefulness of the harbour,<br />

and compromise the health and<br />

well-being of those living in the<br />

harbour and those using the harbour<br />

basin for recreation.<br />

The harbour and peninsula<br />

are a short distance from other<br />

airfields and tourists can already<br />

access flights over the harbour for<br />

sightseeing purposes.<br />

If tourists want to experience<br />

a water-based activity in the<br />

harbour we suggest they visit<br />

Lyttelton, spend some time<br />

in this lovely local village and<br />

take a trip on one of the many<br />

environmentally-approved trips<br />

that do not endanger our wildlife.<br />

Use winter to check your boat and equipment<br />

Navigation safety officer<br />

Gary Manch gives us<br />

an update from the<br />

harbourmaster’s office<br />

During the past 18 months<br />

we have been in the process of<br />

building a new work boat for the<br />

harbourmaster’s office.<br />

The vessel is called Marutau,<br />

which translated means safety in<br />

Māori.<br />

The purpose of this vessel is to<br />

ensure we keep up to speed with<br />

buoys that have washed away in<br />

storms and need replacement<br />

due to wear and tear. It’s a neverending<br />

job throughout the region<br />

as we cover Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>,<br />

Akaroa, Port Levy, and all of the<br />

Waitaki lakes.<br />

Pirate’s Corner<br />

Having this vessel also opens<br />

up the possibility of completing<br />

other work on the water within<br />

our organisation. This will be<br />

considered once we get our feet<br />

on the ground and the correct<br />

maritime approvals.<br />

We are nearing the end of the<br />

boating season and only the hardier<br />

boaties will still be out there.<br />

In fact, I know a couple of them,<br />

one’s called Jimmy and the other<br />

is Dave. Both are great guys and<br />

have nice boats.<br />

Jimmy’s boat is regularly<br />

serviced, and he’s completed a<br />

day skipper’s course. He always<br />

checks the weather and makes<br />

sure it’s safe to go out. He has a<br />

waterproof cellphone and holds<br />

a maritime VHF radio operator<br />

Certificate. His life jackets have<br />

been checked for safety. Jimmy<br />

has been boating for years and<br />

never had a problem, he’s a great<br />

skipper and I would go out with<br />

him any day.<br />

As for Dave, he is a great mate,<br />

but wow does he always seem to<br />

have trouble. He was towed home<br />

last season when his boat broke<br />

down, and he had to sit for hours<br />

waiting for a passing boat to wave<br />

down.<br />

This happened because his<br />

cellphone was flat and he had<br />

no VHF radio. Due to the rough<br />

conditions he was seasick – he<br />

forgot to check the marine forecast.<br />

Would I go out with him?<br />

Not until he brushes up on his<br />

preparation.<br />

On that note, spend some<br />

time this winter making sure<br />

your boat and equipment is safe<br />

for next season. A day skipper’s<br />

course is a good way to ensure<br />

you have the tools to keep you<br />

and your crew safe on the water.<br />

Or you may wish to earn a<br />

maritime VHF radio operator<br />

certificate.<br />

Injury-hit Sumner face beach battle<br />

SPORT<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

TWO SHIELDS will be on the<br />

line when Sumner play New<br />

Brighton in the battle of the<br />

beaches at St Leonards Square.<br />

The annual<br />

grudge<br />

match was<br />

given extra<br />

meaning at<br />

the weekend<br />

after New<br />

Brighton<br />

defeated<br />

Martin<br />

Dodgson<br />

Marist<br />

Albion 24-17<br />

to claim the<br />

DCL Shield.<br />

Their first defence will be<br />

against Sumner on Saturday.<br />

The shield is played for in a<br />

challenge format each week<br />

throughout the premier metro<br />

rugby competition.<br />

The Falton Shield – which is<br />

played for annually when the<br />

two seaside clubs meet – will<br />

also be on the line. Sumner won<br />

the Falton Shield in <strong>May</strong> last<br />

year when they defeated New<br />

Brighton 61-14.<br />

Over the weekend, Sumner’s<br />

resurgence and run of three<br />

straight wins was brought to an<br />

end when Burnside grabbed a<br />

late try to take the spoils 24-<strong>29</strong><br />

at Burnside Park.<br />

Sumner led 24-22 with less<br />

than 5min remaining before<br />

Burnside converted a try. From<br />

the restart, Sumner gained<br />

possession and spent a number<br />

of phases battering Burnside’s<br />

5m line before the hosts were<br />

awarded a penalty.<br />

Once again the Sumner<br />

forward pack showed their<br />

usual dominance. However, that<br />

was nullified midway through<br />

the match when the scrums<br />

went uncontested due to an<br />

injury to a Burnside prop.<br />

“They only stripped 21<br />

players, so they only have a<br />

hooker reserve on the bench, so<br />

if one of their props goes down<br />

injured they go to uncontested,”<br />

said Sumner coach Martin<br />

Dodgson.<br />

Sumner also finished the<br />

match with a lofty injury toll.<br />

A number of injuries to the<br />

Ladies golf champs<br />

THE CHARTERIS <strong>Bay</strong><br />

Golf Club hosted the annual<br />

Banks Peninsula ladies golf<br />

championships with 36 players<br />

from the Akaroa, Tai Tapu and<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> clubs.<br />

The Kinloch Cup for the best<br />

nett overall score was won by<br />

Sharon Screen from Charteris<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

Other winners:<br />

•Silver division best gross –<br />

Carol Bates, Tai Tapu, 1; Chris<br />

Brodie, Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>, 2.<br />

•Best nett – Faye Narbey,<br />

Akaroa, 1; Fran Anderson,<br />

Akaroa 2.<br />

CHALLENGE: Sumner will put the Falton Shield on the line when they face New Brighton on<br />

Saturday in the battle of the beaches.<br />

•Stableford – Sue Thurston,<br />

Akaroa.<br />

•Bronze one division best gross<br />

– Sharon Screen, Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>, 1;<br />

Pam Brewer, Tai Tapu 2.<br />

•Best nett – Denise Whitbread,<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>, 2; Julie Livesey, Tai<br />

Tapu, 2.<br />

•Stableford – Jeanette Drinnan,<br />

Tai Tapu.<br />

•Bronze two division best gross<br />

– Carole Steele, Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>, 2;<br />

Janet Nicholls, Tai Tapu, 2.<br />

•Best nett – Jan Barkle,<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>, 1; Claire White,<br />

Akaroa, 2.<br />

•Stableford – Sue Nicholl,<br />

Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

backline saw the side use four<br />

different players at halfback<br />

during the loss to Burnside.<br />

With regular halfback<br />

Hayden O’Donnell unavailable<br />

due to injury, first-five Josh Toy<br />

got the start in the No 9 jersey,<br />

while Alistair Crossdale started<br />

at No 10. However, Crossdale<br />

pulled a groin muscle during<br />

the first play of the game, which<br />

forced Toy to move to first-five<br />

and Zack Gray – who played<br />

80min for the reserve side<br />

earlier in the day – to fill the<br />

void at halfback.<br />

Midway through the second<br />

half, Gray was substituted<br />

understandably after a<br />

combined 120min of rugby.<br />

Winger Piers Martin then took<br />

the reins. However, a shoulder<br />

injury saw him leave the field,<br />

which meant centre Willy<br />

Saukuru ended the match at<br />

halfback.<br />

The injury toll means coach<br />

Martin Dodgson will be forced<br />

to use the full depth of his<br />

squad just to put together a<br />

backline for the New Brighton<br />

match. “We’re going to have to<br />

look at whether we play division<br />

two because it’s going to be<br />

basically the whole backline<br />

which would have to play two<br />

games,” said Dodgson.<br />

A large crowd is expected for<br />

Saturday’s battle of the beaches<br />

match. Sumner have organised<br />

a temporary grandstand for the<br />

match, which they used at their<br />

recent club day.<br />

Kicks off is at 2.45pm.<br />

Tuala, Tawake<br />

in wider Canty<br />

training squad<br />

SUMNER forwards Mathew<br />

Tuala (above) and Samu<br />

Tawake have been included in<br />

Canterbury’s wider training<br />

group ahead of the Mitre 10<br />

Cup season.<br />

It is the second consecutive<br />

year prop Tawake has<br />

been selected in coach Joe<br />

Maddock’s wider squad,<br />

while No 8 Tawake has made<br />

the group for the first time<br />

as they look to gain a spot in<br />

the final squad ahead of the<br />

competition, which starts<br />

on August 8. They are set to<br />

join 38 other players from 13<br />

clubs around the region at the<br />

first wider training session at<br />

Rugby Park tonight.<br />

“The next few weeks is<br />

a chance for the coaching<br />

group to bring these young<br />

players into our environment<br />

to train, assess where they<br />

are at, and provide them with<br />

a development opportunity<br />

to complement their club<br />

season,” said Maddock. “Some<br />

of these players have been in<br />

and around Rugby Park before<br />

as part of our development<br />

programmes and teams, but<br />

for others, this will be a new<br />

experience and an exciting<br />

opportunity.”<br />

Taylors Mistake surfers to<br />

vie for world junior titles<br />

ESTELLA Hungerford and Ava<br />

Henderson will represent New<br />

Zealand at the ISA world junior<br />

surfing championship later in<br />

the year.<br />

The Taylors Mistake pair have<br />

been named in the 12-strong<br />

New Zealand junior squad to<br />

travel to the championships.<br />

The location for the<br />

championships is expected to be<br />

named in the coming weeks.<br />

Estella is one of three surfers<br />

named in the NZ under-18<br />

girls team, while Ava is one<br />

of three girls in the under-16<br />

team.<br />

Last year, Estella was part of<br />

the New Zealand team which<br />

finished 12th in the 44-team<br />

competition at Huntington<br />

Beach, California.<br />

Meanwhile, Ava will make her<br />

first appearance at the event.<br />

Ava, 14, has burst onto the<br />

national scene following a<br />

standout summer which saw her<br />

win the under-16 girls category<br />

of the national Billabong Grom<br />

Series.<br />

She has competed well<br />

beyond her years, winning a<br />

number of nationally ranked<br />

under-18 and under-20<br />

competitions.<br />

Estella, 17, has also been in a<br />

recent rich vein of form which<br />

saw her win the South Island<br />

open title in April.<br />

roof diesel is still a viable option<br />

Motoring<br />

Ross Kiddie<br />

I HAVEN’T quite worked out<br />

why New Zealand buyers shy<br />

away from diesel-powered cars.<br />

There are many reasons why<br />

diesel power is preferable, and if<br />

you take into account that most<br />

of the market leading sellers here<br />

are diesel-fed, notably double-cab<br />

utility vehicles, then I’m lost to<br />

explain why that popularity hasn’t<br />

channelled to diesel cars and<br />

SUVs, particularly cars – sedans<br />

and coupes.<br />

Many of the mainstream<br />

manufacturers are downsizing the<br />

diesel line-up, however, many of<br />

the European brands still see the<br />

worth of offering diesel in family<br />

vehicles, and if the Mercedes-<br />

Benz C220d is anything to go by<br />

I can see why it is incorporated<br />

into the five-car C-Class sedan<br />

mix.<br />

The C220d has a 2-litre<br />

turbocharged engine which has<br />

some amazing figures in terms of<br />

power output, performance and<br />

economy.<br />

It is rated with 143kW and<br />

400Nm power outputs, that’s<br />

strong enough to claim a<br />

standstill to 100km/h acceleration<br />

time of 6.9sec. The torque flow<br />

is strong from almost nowhere,<br />

and it delivers right through to<br />

the top end of the mid-range.<br />

That force delivers an immensely<br />

satisfying driving feel, it is the feel<br />

that I’ve described many times<br />

in my columns and for anyone<br />

contemplating buying diesel, it is<br />

wonderful to feel from under the<br />

accelerator pedal.<br />

While it has that amazing<br />

performance, the C220d also<br />

has incredible fuel usage figures.<br />

Mercedes-Benz claims an<br />

amazing 4.7-litre per 100km<br />

combined cycle average. That<br />

equates to around 60mpg in<br />

imperial terms, and if you are on<br />

a long highway cruise it will sip<br />

fuel at the rate of just 4.2l/100km<br />

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

just barely turning over at around<br />

1200rpm.<br />

I took the evaluation car on<br />

my usual Malvern Hills loop<br />

and enjoyed its freedom on the<br />

open road, it steers beautifully<br />

and provides all the satisfaction<br />

you get from a rear-wheel-drive<br />

car. Power is channelled in that<br />

direction through a nine-speed<br />

automatic gearbox.<br />

The transmission is a stunner,<br />

so smooth are the changes it’s<br />

almost as if there are no changes<br />

bar the needle shift on the<br />

tachometer. Of course, there are<br />

driver selectable steering-wheelmounted<br />

paddles, but I never<br />

used them a lot, far preferring<br />

to let the gearbox do its own<br />

thinking, the engine/transmission<br />

combination never disappoints.<br />

When pushed into a series<br />

of quick corners the C220d<br />

responds with beautiful balance<br />

and directional control.<br />

Grip is high through sport<br />

specification 19in Continental<br />

tyres and with clever traction<br />

control devices there is little<br />

chance the rear would step out<br />

under heavy power provocation.<br />

There are a series of corners,<br />

that I reserve solely for when I am<br />

evaluating rear-wheel-drive cars,<br />

and the C220d didn’t disappoint,<br />

it lunges out of a corner apex with<br />

the strength you can only get with<br />

turbocharged diesel power, it is<br />

infectious, and you also have the<br />

• Price – Mercedes-Benz<br />

C220d, $75,800<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4686mm; width, 1810mm;<br />

height, 1430mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

rear-wheel-drive,<br />

1950cc, 143kW, 400Nm,<br />

nine-speed automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 6.9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 4.7l/100km<br />

satisfaction of knowing that when<br />

it comes time to slow for the next<br />

corner, huge brakes take care of<br />

slowing speed. The pedal feels<br />

tight and solid underfoot.<br />

The C220d is the epitome of<br />

the sports sedan market, the<br />

figures all stack up, and it feels<br />

just so right to be in. At $75,800<br />

I guess it has to have a lot on<br />

MERCEDES-<br />

BENZ C220D:<br />

Performance<br />

and economy.<br />

offer, but you do get a lot of kit<br />

in the car, and if you think of<br />

the quality within the way it is<br />

built and the amount of safety<br />

features and items for comfort<br />

and convenience, then it is money<br />

well spent, and the satisfaction<br />

that you get from every drive<br />

makes it a very desirable<br />

purchase.<br />

If you are C-Class buyer yet still<br />

can’t quite get your head around<br />

the complications of diesel with the<br />

road user charges Kiwi diesel car<br />

buyers have to face, bear in mind<br />

the C-Class is an entire range from<br />

four-cylinder to V8 petrol.<br />

As much as I like the C63S with<br />

its huge V8 power and sound,<br />

the diesel is the car for me, it<br />

represents all the amazing things<br />

you can glean from the engine –<br />

economy, low emissions, and that<br />

fabulous mid-range grunt.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

Action looms<br />

on Hawke St<br />

car park<br />

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 />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

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

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<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 />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes to own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the all<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Lia ne Dalziel told the<br />

board on Thursday it had the okay<br />

from the city council to make a<br />

submi sion if Fulton Hogan applies<br />

for a resource consen to create a<br />

qua ry.<br />

Board chairman Mike Mora<br />

told Western News the submi sion<br />

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s<br />

plan.<br />

“You can just about guarant e<br />

it . because we [the community<br />

board] don’t believe qua ries<br />

should be so close to residential<br />

areas,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if<br />

the city council would endorse the<br />

board’ submi sion.<br />

“I’d like to think so because the<br />

city council has had their eyes<br />

open as we l ove recent years over<br />

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said the community<br />

board wi l be “representing and<br />

advocating” for the Templeton<br />

community.<br />

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

Action looms<br />

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 />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

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

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<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 />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes to own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

The New Zealand Mounted<br />

Rifles Charitable Trust president<br />

Mike Donaldson t ok their<br />

horses to the sch ol on Monday,<br />

to the trust.<br />

The presentation is a prelude<br />

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve<br />

Management Commi t e’s<br />

upcoming Anzac Day service.<br />

As a tribute to those who<br />

served, members of the trust wi l<br />

ride horseback to the service.<br />

Mr A pleton said it was<br />

important children were<br />

educated on what soldiers<br />

wen through during World<br />

War 1 and World War 2.<br />

But he said the presentation<br />

didn’t go into t o much detail<br />

and was more of a “show and<br />

te l” to make them aware of what<br />

the soldiers l oked like.<br />

Children were shown the type<br />

of kits horses were required to<br />

wear in the war.<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

Mr Winder has b en a butcher<br />

since the age of 19.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Lia ne Dalziel told the<br />

board on Thursday it had the okay<br />

from the city council to make a<br />

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies<br />

for a resource consen to create a<br />

qua ry.<br />

Board chairman Mike Mora<br />

told Western News the submi sion<br />

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s<br />

plan.<br />

“You can just about guarant e<br />

it . because we [the community<br />

board] don’t believe qua ries<br />

should be so close to residential<br />

areas,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if<br />

the city council would endorse the<br />

board’ submi sion.<br />

“I’d like to think so because the<br />

city council has had their eyes<br />

open as we l ove recent years over<br />

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said the community<br />

board wi l be “representing and<br />

advocating” for the Templeton<br />

community.<br />
