Big honour for sports broadcaster

Speed

limits in

Sumner

under

scrutiny

• By Louis Day

HEATHCOTE’S Grant Windsor

has been recognised in the

Queen’s Birthday Honours for

his contribution to sport and

broadcasting.

Mr Windsor was made a

Member of the New Zealand

Order of Merit.

In 1978, he was a part-time

sports reporter at Radio New

Zealand, and he used those skills

in a wide range of voluntary

community broadcasting roles.

• By Louis Day

SUMNER SPEED limits could be

set for a complete overhaul.

The city council is proposing

various changes to the speed

limits across Sumner.

Public consultation for the plan

will open on June 17.

The plan proposes the speed

limit be reduced in the wider

Sumner residential area from

50km/h to 40km/h as well

as a drop to 30km/h at the

entrance to Sumner, through

the township and along the

Esplanade.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton saw the change as

necessary.

“I know that many people have

concerns about the large trucks

going back through the town on

their way to Lyttelton so I think it

will be well supported. There have

also been some issues with boy

racers in the area,” she said.

THAT’S A well deserved accolade for Grant

Windsor on page 1 today.

The Heathcote resident has been around

the sporting scene for decades, particularly

as a reporter and broadcaster on radio.

I remember as a young sports reporter

(print) bumping into Grant around the traps and he would

always have a big smile and laugh. And he was a knowledgeable

bloke too, of course.

He now volunteers at Radio Lollipop, a station for children in

hospital, and has also worked with disabled children and at rest

homes.

So well done Grant for being made a Member of the New

Zealand Order of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for

your contribution to sport and broadcasting.

An all round top bloke, you might say.

Funding boost for life savers

Taylors Mistake

to get five

new rescue

surf skis

TAYLORS MISTAKE Surf

Life Saving Club will be able

to buy five new rescue surf skis

following a grant from the New

Zealand Community Trust.

Club administrator Adrian

Mouldey said the club was

overwhelmed by the $15,936

grant.

“It is a great confidence

booster. It signals to us that

organisations such as NZCT

believe in the benefits surf

lifesaving clubs like ours provide

to the community in keeping

the beach safe over summer,” he

said.

Taylors Mistake and the

nearby bays are popular in the

warmer months. On a hot day,

over 2000 people can be at the

beach at Taylors Mistake with

up to 20 lifeguards from the club

being present.

A normal patrol would see 10

to 12 lifeguards present.

In the past year, the club

has had 95 active lifeguards

volunteering over 1800 hours. In

this time, 12 rescues have been

made and 15 first aid treatments

given.

“Our volunteer lifeguards

that usually require various

forms of equipment to assist

them.”

“The equipment used includes

rescue surf skis, rescue boards

and inflatable rescue boats. It

is this equipment that the club

needs funding for. Each piece of

equipment has a limited lifespan

and in the case of rescue surf skis

this is usually five to six years.”

A PLAN TO cover every aspect of

the city’s water over the next 100

years is in the pipeline.

An integrated strategy to

manage the water supply, as well

as wastewater, stormwater, surface

water, groundwater and flood

management for the next century

is being developed by the city

council.

Water accounts for 25 per cent

of the city council’s projected

spend over the next 10 years with

$10 billion budgeted for it in the

Long Term Plan.

“The strategy is a high-level,

overarching strategy, developed

to consider water resources

and water services, values and

demands, and set a framework

to help the council to manage

them in an integrated way for at

least the next 100 years,” said city

council water supply programme

manager Helen Beaumont.

The point of the plan is to

address 11 “key strategic

issues” relating to water:

•Different perceptions of the

value of the water.

•Poor state of some

waterways.

•Vulnerability of

Christchurch’s groundwater

source to contamination.

DO IT ONCE - DO IT RIGHT

•Retaining Walls

•Drain-laying

•Driveways

•Trenching

•Wastewater overflows and

effects on surface water.

•Treated wastewater

discharges into Akaroa

Harbour.

•Stormwater discharges and

the effects on surface water.

•Flooding and flood

management.

•Responding/

adapting to the

anticipated effects of

sea level rise on water

resources and related

infrastructure.

•Long-term

availability of water for

water supply.

•Long-term

sustainable

wastewater treatment

and disposal.

•Infrastructure efficiency and

resilience.

The plan will include short,

medium and long-term goals,

such as achieving a high standard

of surface and groundwater

quality, increasing awareness

within the community and

adapting to climate change.

“The review of the strategies

began back in 2015 and external

costs to date total $302,350,

strategy, and external stakeholder

reviews,” Ms Beaumont said.

Staff costs are in addition and

come out of existing budgets for

policy development.

Aotearoa Water Action Group

spokesman Peter Richardson said

it was a great move by the city

council.

“I think it sounds

absolutely fantastic. Our

councillors have shown

such leadership in the

water space,” he said.

City councillor Yani

Johanson said it was an

important process for

the whole community to

engage in.

“Water is such a

fundamental thing for our

community and particularly with

all that we’ve been through.”

However, he is worried that the

process is being rushed.

“I think this is really an

important document for us as a

city. It’s really important

we spend as much time as

required to really embrace the

ideas from across our city to make

sure we get something people buy

into.”

Public consultation on the

strategy is expected to take

place next month after the draft

is approved by a city council

working group.

Our success is built on obtaining respect

and repeat business for our honesty,

skills and innovation.

Your Local Views

Readers respond to last

week’s Bay Harbour News’

article about a liquor store

planned for Redcliffs

Donald and Jan Simpson –

We wish to express very strong

opposition to the proposed liquor

outlet on Main Rd, Redcliffs

Village.

We do not need any more

liquor outlets in our area, bearing

in mind there are already more

than enough between Ferrymead

and Sumner and we have a New

World supermarket offering good

quality wines and beers already.

There is already an unwanted

and unpleasant problem in nearby

Beachville Reserve with drinking

and disorderly behaviour. We do

not need tobacco items or RTDs

sold there either.

Already there are too many,

with too easy access and the

granting of far too many new

licences. This is helping to

increase the appalling statistics

we have in New Zealand with too

much alcohol being consumed,

and the related problems of

alcoholism, family violence,

youth drinking, drink driving

and health-related illnesses.

The financial cost of the

problems relating to the drinking

and supply of alcohol and

cigarettes and the human cost is

eye-watering and we are at a loss

to understand why the granting

of yet another, and unwanted

licence in our area, is even being

considered.

Paddy Brocherie – Let’s

stop this now. We do not want

this in our Redcliffs Village.

Thank you for the opportunity

to have my say on the proposed

wine store. I say “no”.

Anna Majendie – Not sure

why Dr Fox mentioned the terror

attacks . . . had nothing to do

with alcohol. As far as I’m aware,

the whole of Christchurch was

affected.

Robyn Pearson – Living

within the required 1km

radius of this proposed liquor

application I put in a written

submission as required back

in January then attended the

hearing.

I felt obliged to do this as Jo

Bloggs average Redcliffs resident

representing the many in my

street who literally couldn’t go

through the requirements to

make opposing submissions.

However, even in my street,

and I’ve spoken to most, no

one had any enthusiasm for this

application – sensing a liquor

store could change what we

have – many of whom had made

a deliberate choice to live on the

flat, close to amenities to enjoy

the peace, quiet and safety that

Redcliffs offers.

It is a family and elderlyfriendly,

safe, quaint little

village with all essential

amenities established, including

a fully stocked New World

supermarket with well stocked

and monitored wine and beer

products.

Those who did manage to

negotiate the hoops and hurdles

of the process itself and attended

the two-da hearing found it

heavily weighted against the

community for a number of

reasons but mainly because

the agencies – police, medical

officer of health and city

council licensing inspector

‘have no issue’ with this planned

liquor outlet.

Therefore, the whole procedure

is expensive in time and

resources. Basically, it’s a lot of

rubber-stamping although the

tribunal is yet to make its final

decision.

This is astonishing given

alcohol-related harm is not only

acknowledged by the Liquor

Licensing Act 2012, but plenty

of research shows when a liquor

outlet opens, crime increases and

violent crime is up to 50 per cent.

It states harm from sale,

purchase and consumption must

be minimised.

Also good order and amenity

maintained. The greater

the availability and visibility -

the greater the alcohol-related

harm.

QUICKER, SAFER

EVACUATIONS

Those who live or work in Sumner are warmly

knowledge of the area, to help improve tsunami

to exercise and enjoy our

Redcliffs Village is the

This proposed site is the

only store on the Coastal

Pathway. The city council’s

pathway plans illustrate

this corner as a cafe.

Or else put in a bike shop

catering for bikes, scooters

trikes and e-bikes.

We are a healthy fitnessconscious

community

and passionately love our

tranquil and beautiful

environments, such as

Beachville Reserve (70m

away from the proposed

site).

Trends show local

parks and reserves

become youth drinking

lounges with increased

noise, litter, petty crime

and vandalism.

A liquor outlet store just

does not suit the village or

its environment – it has

the ability to change its

character.

There are schools,

reserves, parks and three

red zones all within a

1km radius – all attractive

for unsupervised night

drinkers.

There are 39 licenced

liquor outlets between

the CBD and Sumner.

Redcliffs residents are, in

general, a highly mobile

demographic, but there are

also many elderly people

living alone and vulnerable

youth. The proposed

site also has dozens of

residential homes close by.

This is a proposal to

sell addictive products

for private profit at the cost

of the community.

LAURA’S recovery is going

well, however, now she has

a nasty cold so family-funtime

continues, with added

sniffling and groaning.

Before the dreaded

lurgy took hold here Laura

had some time out with

a friend and fellow mum

while I took Vittoria to the

movies. Alone.

We have taken her to the

movies before, but when

she was a proper wee baby.

With her being a full-on

toddler, I was worried

about how it would go.

The session I picked had

a lot going in my favour. It

was a special screening for

parents with small kids and

we were watching Pokemon

Detective Pikachu.

Bright colours, fun characters.

Attention-grabbing,

with a healthy amount of

adult humour and nostalgic

value for a former

Pokemon Red aficionado.

In theory, good for both

of us.

We managed to get there

the perfect amount of late

to watch only the better

trailers.

The start time also

lined up with Vittoria’s

lunchtime, which was

great as she is food obsessed.

It will give you angelic

behaviour and blissful

silence for as long as the

food lasts.

Vittoria happily sat, had

her lunch and was watching

so cheerfully that I

started mentally planning

regular daddy/daughter

movie dates.

That lasted until the dialogue

turned to some fairly

key story points. At that

moment Vittoria got up,

jumped off her back row

seat and climbed through

the seat in front.

Now I’m trying to give

Vittoria as much freedom

to explore as possible but

I’m lucky the theatre was

pretty empty as she just

booked it down the line of

seats, ran down the stairs

and explored.

With offers of popcorn

and other snacks, I

managed to limit her laps

around the theatre to the

manageable and enjoy the

whole film.

It wasn’t until the

climactic final battle scene

that she turned it up to “oh

no”.

She went down the stairs,

smiled at a family to gain

their trust then snuck

down the row behind their

seats and pinched their entire

popcorn box through

the seat.

I retrieved it and gave it

back to the family – who

VITTORIA

& Matt

FUN-TIME: This level of concentration lasted about

30sec into the movie.

were very understanding,

they had children too and

I imagine most parents

have been through snackthievery.

All in all, an excellent

outing. Ten out of ten,

would do again.

For those of you on

social media, check out

the Instagram page I just

started for the column –

Vittoria & Matt. I’ll do my

best to share photos and

videos as often as possible.

BRAVO: The Sumner Theatre Group following last year’s sell-out production.

Musicians wanted to

perform with theatre group

THE SUMNER Theatre

Group is on the hunt for

a band to accompany it in

this year’s production.

The theatre group produces

a yearly show to help

local community groups

raise money.

“We’re a fun lot, and are

in need of a band to work

with us this year,” said

secretary Jesse Rogers.

“Our show always has

a range of cover songs to

perform which are sung by

the cast, but after the show,

the floor is yours and year

after year the audience get

their dancing shoes on to

join in.”

“Ideally we’d like an

established band that is

willing to work with us to

adapt songs to fit the show.

Keyboard, guitar, bass and

drums and whatever else

you like.”

Rehearsals will begin in

mid-June and happen every

Monday night.

Shows will begin in

August and be held every

Friday and Saturday night.

Personnel changes at Sumner

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER ARE set to get a

welcome boost following their

3-29 loss to New Brighton in the

battle of the beaches on Saturday.

With star centre Alistair

Crossdale – who missed the

match against New Brighton due

to a groin injury – returning to

the United Kingdom this week,

Sumner are

preparing

to welcome

fellow

Englishman

James Elliot

for the

remainder of

the season.

Elliot, a

Martin

Dodgson

half back,

was part of

the Newcastle

Falcons junior

academy before playing for Leeds

Beckett University.

In 2017, he linked back up

with the Falcons and was part

of their squad last year before

missing out on a new contract

with the club, which has created

an opportunity for him to ply his

trade in Sumner.

A familiar face will also return

this week with Wesley Mauafu

coming back after study and

work commitments in Auckland.

Mauafu played a key role in

Sumner’s No 12 jersey before he

moved north.

Sumner coach Martin

Dodgson is looking forward

CHANGE: James Elliot (left) will arrive in Sumner this week after two seasons at the Newcastle

Falcons academy in England, while Wesley Mauafu is set to turn out for Sumner after returning

from Auckland.

to having Mauafu back at his

disposal. However, it will be

bittersweet with Crossdale

departing as Dodgson believes

the pair could have been a killer

combination in the midfield.

“If you have (Mauafu) at 12

and Ali [Crossdale] at 13 . . .

far out, that’s an NPC quality

midfield right there,” said

Dodgson.

Following the loss to New

Brighton, Sumner are 10th in the

premier metro competition with

no chance of qualifying for the

top six.

On Saturday, they will go up

against High School Old Boys,

which will be Sumner’s final

game in the first phase of the

competition before they turn

their attention to restarting in

the bottom six the following

weekend.

The loss to New Brighton

also saw Sumner surrender the

Falton Shield, which is played

for between the two rival seaside

clubs.

The match was played in heavy

rain and wind at St Leonards

Square, meaning metres were

hard to gain with the ball in

hand.

After trailing 3-10 at halftime,

Sumner conceded an intercept

try and two more tries from

rolling mauls.

“The lineout throw was a

lottery, rucks were a lottery, ball

carrying was a lottery, kicking

was a lottery, just because of the

wind, the rain and the field,” said

Dodgson. “It was always going to

come down to things you could

control like discipline and our

discipline really let us down. We

gave away some soft penalties

for offside and with the wind

they were reeling off 40m or 50m

kicks for touch.”

•Sumner’s match against

HSOB kicks off at 2.45pm on

Saturday at St Leonards Square.

SPORT

Win would help

Bays secure

spot in the SFL

FERRYMEAD BAYS’ hopes of

securing a spot in the Southern

Football League will get a

massive boost if they can defeat

Nomads United on Saturday.

Bays are currently sixth in the

Mainland Premier League – one

point behind Nomads. The top

five teams in the MPL will qualify

for the SFL. With just two

rounds remaining in the MPL,

Bays will need at least one win

to have a chance of securing a

SFL spot. They play defending

MPL champions and current

leaders Cashmere Technical in

their final match.

Bays had a busy Queen’s

Birthday weekend. On Saturday,

they drew 0-0 with Coastal

Spirit at English Park in the

MPL. Bays’ best chance came

from a Nathan Townsend free

kick, which just sailed over the

crossbar.

On Monday, Bays advanced to

the third round of the Chatham

Cup by defeating FC Twenty

11 4-0 at Avonhead Park.

Townsend netted a hat-trick,

while stalwart defender Chris

Murphy also found the back of

the net. Bays will find out their

opposition for the opposition

for the next round when the

draw is made this afternoon.

GREAT WINTER

READS INSTORE

NEW RELEASES

GREAT READS INSTORE NOW

A Biker’s Life

Misadventure on (and off) two wheels

By Henry Cole

A BIKER’S LIFE is the dramatic, humorous and candid memoir of

one of the most recognisable names in motorcycling.

Henry Cole’s passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of

eight, he was first introduced to a ‘man cave’. His great-uncle

Redbeard’s corrugated iron shed was ‘stuffed to the gills with old

motorbikes’ which Henry helped rebuild and ride. Since then,

Henry’s life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has

been on - from a stifling public-school education, via many years

battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden

for over twenty series as presenter of numerous TV shows.

This book reminds millions of motorcyclists why their bike gives them the freedom to be

exactly who they want to be: to say ‘I’m doing my thing.’ When you ride a motorbike you

become part of a worldwide community of kindred spirits - those of us who will not be

pacified by driving a car, but instead live for adventure and the sheer thrill of the throttle.

Repurposed

New Zealand Homes Using Upcycled Materials

and Spaces

By Catherine Foster

New ways to use old materials, spaces and buildings, by the

author of Small House Living.

An on-trend home design book, featuring an inspiring array

of homes that have made good use of recycled and upcycled

materials, structures, spaces and furnishings. Included in the

mix are industrial and farm buildings that have been converted

for living and furnished appropriately with vintage and repurposed industrial fittings.

The book features 20 homes located throughout the country that feature a variety of clever

solutions and design styles. There is everything from repurposed container homes to army

barracks, farm utility buildings, churches and urban spaces finished with upcycled and

repurposed furnishings.

Tim Cook

The Genius Leading Apple into a New era of

Success

By Leander Kahney

In 2011, Tim Cook took on an impossible task - following in the

footsteps of one of history’s greatest business visionaries, Steve

Jobs. Facing worldwide scrutiny, Cook (who was often described

as shy, unassuming and unimaginative) defied all expectations.

Under Cook’s leadership Apple has soared: its stock has nearly

tripled to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company. From

the massive growth of the iPhone to new victories like the Apple

Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success.

But he’s also spearheaded a cultural revolution within the company. Since becoming CEO,

Cook has introduced a new style of management that emphasizes kindness, collaboration

and honesty, and has quietly pushed Apple to support sexual and racial equal rights and

invest heavily in renewable energy.

The Billion Dollar Bonfire

How Allan Hubbard and the Government

destroyed South Canterbury Finance

By Chris Lee

The collapse of South Canterbury Finance (SCF) is one of the

biggest New Zealand stories of the last decade.

The sweep of events, from Timaru to the Beehive, include some

of the most revealing moments on issues critical to this country

- everything from poor governance and systemic issues in the

finance sector, through to the structural risks this exposed and

the costs it ultimately presented to all New Zealanders. There has

not yet been a book that has attempted to tell this story, certainly

not one from an `insider’ perspective. The Billion Dollar Bonfire by Chris Lee will be the first

book to do both these things. Chris tells this fascinating story as both a long-standing New

Zealand financial advisor and a protagonist in the narrative. As he writes in the opening

chapter, he knew Alan Hubbard personally and, from the late 1990s, had clients invest with

SCF. His main motivation for writing the book, made explicit throughout, is his overriding

concern that this could all happen again without significant changes to our law and the

culture of the capital markets industry.

GT-Line gives the Kia brand extra bite

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

KIA MOTORS New Zealand is

doing everything it can to raise

the profile of its ever-increasing

line-up.

Amidst its range of sport utility

vehicles and passenger cars is new

branding, the GT-Line is stretching

further into the company’s mix.

GT-Line can be found in new

Cerato and Sportage, and those

variants generally have more

features and a slant towards

higher performance – engine and

suspension.

One other model stands out

with its GT-Line badge, and that

is the Rio, a smallish hatchback

which has already made a name

for itself in the market for its

practicality and economy.

The Rio lands here in entry-level

form at $23,490 which makes it an

affordable package and there are

higher grade options depending

on how you would like it specced.

Topping the range is a $28,990

GT-Line which has an engine

totally devoid from that of its stablemates.

Instead of the tried and

tested 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated

four-cylinder unit, the GT-Line

gets a turbocharged three-potter

which is squarely aimed at Suzuki’s

$28,500 Swift Sport, in terms of its

position in the market.

The 1-litre engine is considerably

more powerful than the base

model unit, yet it is also more

economical and, being lightweight

in design, it promotes an

agile handling feel.

Power is rated at a healthy

88kW and 171Nm, the turbo

boost ushering in a long torque

curve – 1500rpm to 4000rpm.

Maximum power arrives at

6000rpm, but bottom end

strength is strong enough to meet

the red-line without becoming

breathless.

For the three-cylinder novice

you will firstly notice the harmonics

associated with the design, it

appears lumpy and doesn’t always

seem balanced, that’s not really

the case it just seems that way.

However, it does have a characteristic

tone and that is manifested

through the cabin, that’s not a bad

thing, I like the sound and the

feeling it generates, it adds to the

sporty sensation Kia is trying to

achieve with the GT-Line.

Drive is channelled through a

seven-speed, dual clutch transmission,

therein lies another

notable sensation, there isn’t total

harmony between the engine and

gearbox, there are times when the

two don’t feel thoroughly connected,

notably when entering or

leaving reverse.

That aside, in all other circumstances

it works sweetly, shifts are

quick and combine to promote

the feel you would expect from a

car wearing a GT badge.

Performance is quite lively given

the engine has a displacement

of just 998cc. It will launch the

Rio to 100km/h from a standstill

in around 10sec and will happily

shift down for a highway overtake

in 6.6sec (80km/h to 120km/h).

The Rio in this form hasn’t lost

sight of its purpose, it is still the

economical fuel miser of its counterparts

- the LX, EX and Limited.

Kia NZ gives the turbo Rio

a 5.4-litre per 100km (52mpg)

combined cycle average.

Unfortunately, my time on the

highway was thwarted by a puncture

and I didn’t do anywhere

near the amount of kilometres I

would have preferred. However,

I can report that the Rio GT-Line

has spirited behaviour and tidy

handling manners.

Kia has uprated the suspension

quite noticeably, the GT-Line sits

very firm on the road and doesn’t

absorb much in the way of road

ripples. A bit of that has to do

with the low profile of the tyres

(205/45 x 17in) and the restricting

nature of the tube beam rear

axle that prohibits rear wheel

freedom. However, the handling

benefits are at the forefront, the

Rio GT-Line has sporty dynamics,

it steers sweetly into a corner

and powers out with composure.

Directional accuracy is sharp and

body balance over the suspension

is well contained thanks to the

firming.

As sporty as the Rio GT-line

suggests, it is still the practical

family car, the five-door layout is

appealing and the levels of comfort

aren’t overly compromised,

bearing in mind that at just over

4m, the Rio as a range isn’t big on

space,however, it does make good

use of its compact proportions and

will satisfy with its level of comfort.

Kia in New Zealand knows it

has to compete hard, in all of its

markets there are other brands

with tempting product.

I’m not sure the Rio GT-Line

has the spark to pip the Swift

Sport, but I do know is that Kia

NZ will be aggressive with its

marketing, and it will certainly

sell to those who want something

just a little different in their performance

car purchase.

REAL ESTATE

Sunrise to sunset

7A Ranui Crescent, Diamond Harbour

Price: $418,000

2/3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | Open plan living/dining/kitchen | Listing Number: 9394

Sitting as centre stage to the water, this is

a quirky, retro and totally unique property.

Sitting as centre stage to the water as you can

get, the views here out to the hills and the

head of the harbour are unbeatable.

In a well-established, private garden which

adjoins the reserve, this is a property which

begs closer inspection. It’s functional in

layout, and there is certainly opportunity

here to add value and create something quite

remarkable with the interior, which oozes

potential.

Two decent sized bedrooms and a

bathroom downstairs, and on the middle

level is open-plan living/dining and kitchen

with more phenomenal views. Ascend the

spiral staircase to the upper level where

you will find more space for potentially the

master bedroom or additional living.

The house itself is tidy but requires some

structural work to continue its longevity -

this is a project best suited to someone with

construction skills or experience. There is an

engineer’s report available.

For a private viewing of this unique

property in a stunning harbour position,

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.”

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

Cave Rock

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

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

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

since the age of 19.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

“I’d like to think so because 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.”

Community Board has taken the

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

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

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 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

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
