Mild winter may be on the way

IF YOU have enjoyed the balmy

May weather – more could be

on the way.

Blue Skies Weather and

Climate Services Ltd owner

Tony Trewinnard said there is

no indication this winter will

be any warmer, colder, wetter

or drier than normal.

However, Christchurch

should expect to see more

south-westerly winds than

usual, he said.

“Obviously what is

coming up in the next

10 days is good example

of that . . . while southwesterlies

often make

things cold, this isn’t

always the case.”

“We have had a lot

of south-west winds

through the month of May and

yet our daytime temperatures

Tony

Trewinnard

have been quite mild.

Our night times have

been fairly cold and we

have had some light

frosts and that’s typical

when you get southwesterlies.”

“But that doesn’t

mean that’s going to be

the pattern all through

the winter, there will be periods

where the wind flow comes

from all directions,” said Mr

Trewinnard.

When comparing the

predictions of this season to

previous similar seasons, Mr

Trewinnard said we could see

more cloudy days.

“(We could see) a number of

cloudy days and nights, which

could produce less frostiness.

That could be one of the

characteristics we see.”

Making election waves

• By Julia Evans

AFTER 40 years on the

airwaves, James Daniels now

wants to make waves at the city

council table.

The 64-year-old veteran radio

DJ will take on David East for

the Coastal Ward in October’s

local body elections.

It comes a week after medical

supplies salesman Kelly Barber

announced he would also contest

the seat for Labour-aligned The

People’s Choice.

Mr Daniels grew up in the

area, attending South, Central

and North New Brighton

schools.

“This community is me. I’ve

grown up in Union St, Gresham

Tce, Collingwood St, Rae Lane,

Brentwood St, Marriotts Rd and

still live in Betula Pl, so I know

the area, its history, its issues and

the fact that we’ve been let down

by the city’s governors,” Mr

Daniels said.

The current low point is the

state of our ward. There are

still too many house and basic

infrastructure repairs to be

started or completed.”

He is best known for his

40-year broadcasting career

– including being one half of

‘James and Ken’ with Ken Ellis

in the 1980s and more recently

co-hosting The Breeze breakfast

show with Hilary Muir.

But he has also held

governance roles for 25 years.

Mr Daniels spent almost 20

years on the tribal council for

his iwi Ngai Tahu, two terms on

the board of Touch New Zealand

and a foundation director of

More FM.

He is currently on the board

of Ngai Tahu Property Ltd, with

roles in media and charitable

sectors.

The council needs people with

proven, good governance skills

because we have some strategic,

yet complex, difficult decisions to

make,” Mr Daniels said.

“I’ll bring energy, expertise

and a fresh perspective to the

process . . . this area is where I

grew up and where I will grow

old.”

Mr Daniels said New Brighton

Rd was “embarrassingly broken”

and should be only for fourwheel-drives.

The Estuary edge and

Southshore are also in need of a

lot of work and proposed rates

rises are too high, he said.

Incumbent Cr East knows Mr

BEACH:

Veteran

radio DJ

James

Daniels has

announced

he is

running

for the city

council’s

Coastal

Ward in

October’s

local body

elections.

Daniels well – he was a few years

ahead of him at Shirley Boys’

High School. “I never thought

I’d go into this election without

competition and I respect his

right to have a go.”

Cr East said they both have

long family connections to the

area and he wasn’t going to take

Mr Daniels’ candidacy lightly.

“I’m not going to pick holes in

my opposition, I’m going to let

my own track record speak for

itself.”
