Push to

restore

signal

tower

lights

• By Louis Day

SUMNER resident Toni

Pengelly has a special

connection to the Cave Rock

signal tower.

Her grandfather Jack Kerr

served as a crew member for

the Sumner Lifeboat Institution

from 1940 to 1987.

During his time as skipper, he

relied on information and lighting

from the signal tower, which

served as their control tower, to

complete rescues.

However, the tower has not

been illuminated for at least 10

years.

Ms Pengelly, alongside the

Sumner-Redcliffs Historical

Society, is on a mission to get

the lights back on the signal

tower.

The city council has said it

would be open to the idea of

lights being reinstalled but has

no funding available. Formal

access agreements would also

be required but have not been

given at this stage

delay

electricity

cable

project

• By Louis Day

A MULTI-MILLION dollar

electricity upgrade for Lyttelton,

Corsair Bay and Cass Bay has

been delayed.

A $3 million, 2.2km electricity

cable was pulled through Lyttelton

Tunnel in April.

Orion general manager of

infrastructure Steve Macdonald

said it was the biggest cable pull

in Orion’s history and possibly in

New Zealand’s.

It was originally expected that

the new cable would be fully operational

by the end of May.

However, the cable is now not

expected to be operational until

the end of July.

“Orion opted to delay their project

while other works were being

undertaken in the area where

their cable is to be laid. This delay

is to ensure the integrity of the

cable,” he said.

The new cable which consists

of three separate single core

cables has a power rating of 10

megawatts, three megawatts

greater than the current average

demand which allows capacity for

growth.

WHAT A great idea on page 1 today –

light up the signal tower on Cave Rock.

Resident Toni Pengelly and the Sumner-

Redcliffs Historical Society are behind the

initiative.

Lighting up the signal tower would be

great for the business area and Cave Rock itself.

Toni’s grandfather and uncles did their bit for the lifeboat

institution over the years, where they relied on information

relayed to them from the signal tower while out on rescues.

And the lit up tower also acted like a lighthouse in poor

weather.

The spotlight for paying for the lighting will go squarely on

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board. The city

council says it doesn’t have anything in the coffers for it.

Battle over reserve toilets ends

• By Louis Day

THE controversial toilets which

led to the city council being

threatened with legal action will

not return to Britomart Reserve

in Akaroa next cruise ship

season.

The temporary Portacom

toilets were put in the reserve

in December to cater for the

increasing number of cruise ship

passengers coming to the area.

However, the city council

placed them there without

resource consent.

City council manager of

community parks Al Hardy

said the failure to get resource

consent for the toilets was an

oversight by staff, which was

described as “embarrassing” by

Banks Peninsula city councillor

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner.

This led to the body corporate,

which represents the Bruce

Waterfront Apartments across

the road from the reserve,

threatening the city council with

legal action.

The city council is now

planning to increase the capacity

of the Place de la Poste toilets at

2 Rue Balguerie to accommodate

tourists. The construction of

the new toilet block is due to be

completed by Christmas.

A spokesman for the body

corporate was delighted with

the news the toilets would not be

returning.

“Hoorah. It’s great to hear that

they are gone and they won’t be

coming back. That is just great

news from where we are sitting,”

he said.

He said the toilets were a

massive nuisance for people

staying in the apartments.

“We had a lot of disgruntled

owners and guests, particularly

when they were pumping (the

toilets) out as early as they could.

They were basically doing it at

daybreak, it was well before seven

o’clock.”

WHARF IDEAS WANTED

The city council will

start collecting ideas from

the public on the design of

the new Akaroa wharf. A

meeting to share ideas will be

held at the Akaroa Bowling

Club today at 1pm. Public

consultation for the wharf

will be open until June 26.

The current wharf had

a structural condition

assessment late last year,

which identified it was

reaching the end of its life.

This is due to the declining

condition of the hardwood

timber, particularly the

timber below water.

Feedback on

Godley House

site sought

• By Louis Day

DIAMOND Harbour residents

will get a chance to have their say

on the Godley House site’s future.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said public

consultation on what will happen

to the reserve land around

Godley House will start next

month.

“The consultation will involve

asking the community what

they would like to use the area

for, keeping in mind the land is

a reserve under the Reserves Act

1977,” he said.

Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman Richard

Suggate said there was a wide

range of views on what should

happen to the site.

Mr Rutledge said the

foundations of Godley House will

remain untouched.

“These foundations have

heritage value and form part

of the history of the area. To

protect the foundations for future

generations, they should not be

built over, removed or damaged,”

he said.

The site was last occupied by

the Dark Star Ale House and

Cafe, which closed at the start of

March.

over the Port Hills.

“The lines over the hill are vulnerable

Mr Macdonald said.

aesthetics and the historical

significance,” she said.

The signal mast was constructed

on Cave Rock by the regional

council in 1864. This was in

response to demands from

shipping companies to make

the Sumner entrance safer for

trading vessels travelling to the

Heathcote wharves at Woolston.

Prior to the advent of electric

light, the original signals on the

mast had specific meanings.

One was three red balls hung

from the mast which meant the

bar was dangerous. A red flag at

the masthead meant bad weather.

The original signal station

became the Sumner Lifeboat Institution’s

control tower in 1958

when a base radio transmitter

was installed to communicate

directly with the lifeboat when

she was at sea. The station was

staffed by shore crew with

binoculars who could update the

crew with information rapidly.

Rescue operations were

directed from Cave Rock until

1980 when a mobile control

was installed in the lifeboat’s

Land-Rover.

RELOCATION: Nine peacocks have been moved from the Port Hills to a farm in

Marlborough after five were shot last month.

Under-threat peacocks

moved off Port Hills

• By Louis Day

NINE peacocks were

relocated from the Port

Hills on Monday after five

were shot last month.

The peacocks have been

relocated to a farm in

Marlborough.

However, seven peacocks

remain.

The relocation effort

comes after a neighbourly

dispute between Janelle

Wills, who feeds the wild

peacocks, and farmer Sue

Stubevoll, who does not

want them wandering on

to her property.

In February, Ms

Stubenvoll sent a legal

letter to Miss Wills, saying

she had the right to shoot

the peacocks under the

Impounding Act. She gave

Miss Wills four weeks

notice.

Last month, Ms

Stubenvoll arranged for

someone to shoot five

peacocks which were on

her property.

She then skinned,

roasted and ate one of them

for dinner.

Ms Stubenvoll said she

has not decided whether

she will shoot more.

News of the incident

appalled local residents,

with some taking to the

community Facebook

group ‘Lyttelton – Ain’t No

Place I’d Rather Be’ to vent

their anger.

Ms Stubenvoll then

called the police after she

was branded a murderer by

various residents.

She told Bay Harbour

News the culling was to

prevent the peacocks eating

the rare gecko and skink

populations which live on

the farm.

The story featured

on Seven Sharp where

celebrity chef Richard Till

cooked and ate one of the

peacocks.

Miss Wills said she did

not watch it.

She said she was still

losing sleep after five of the

peacocks were shot.

“It is still very stressful

because we don’t want to

wake up to more dead,” she

said.

Miss Wills said she needs

more time to relocate the

remaining seven.

Have your wheelie bins

got their electronic tags?

CHECK your wheelie bins

have been electronically

tagged because those

without will soon stop

being emptied.

For the past three years

Waste Management Ltd

has been carrying out a

stocktake of wheelie bins

for the city council.

As part of the stocktake,

they have been fitting the

wheelie bins allocated to

each property with a radio

frequency identification

tag that emits a short range

signal.

The signal can be picked

up by the kerbside collection

trucks and used

to identify if a bin is on a

property where it does not

belong.

The RFID tags will help

identify lost or stolen bins

and reduce the cost of the

kerbside collection by ensuring

only bins that people

are entitled to, and have

paid for, are being emptied.

“We are nearing the end

of the stocktake, which

means that most wheelie

bins should have been

tagged by now. You can

tell if your bin has been

tagged because it will have

a small reflective sticker on

the side,’’ city council solid

waste manager Ross Trotter

said.

Secrets of Silvergum

by Mandy Magro

Bestselling Australian author Mandy Magro returns with

a compelling rural romance about love and the cost of

keeping secrets.

Can dark family secrets ever truly be buried?

When a horrible twist of fate leaves teenage friends Emma

Kensington and Zane Wolfe reeling in the wake of a fatal

accident, the two are driven apart for decades.

As a professional bull rider in America for the past sixteen years, Zane has stayed

a sensible distance from the one woman he’s always loved but could never have -

Emma, his childhood friend, and his brother’s wife. But a phone call revealing his

stepfather’s sudden death means keeping half a world between them is no longer

an option. Returning to Silvergum, how will he keep his long-held feelings under

control?

For Emma, the death of her father-in-law, Peter, is shadowed by the secrets he’d

been blackmailing her with. She’s finally free to tell the truth to the man she’s

covertly loved from afar all this time. But Peter’s hand stretches beyond the grave,

and all too soon Emma discovers she’s not the only one who has been keeping

secrets. And to make peace with her past, she could very likely lose everything

she loves most...

Fire rages, homes at risk

Funding options set to

some will choose not to pay it,”

he said.

Mr de Joux thought the voluntary

levy would be sufficient.

“At this stage, we are confident

that a voluntary levy will be

successful, as it will be at a

modest level and will help

support services provided

directly to the crews of vessels.”

The centre has had more than

10,000 visits from seafarers since

it opened three years ago.

The centre provides seafarers

with assistance, amenities, care,

support and Wi-Fi so they can

contact their families back home.

“Ultimately our bottom line

is shipping companies, port

companies and councils that own

the ports, profit from seafarers

and they should contribute to

their welfare while they are

ashore,” Rev McLister said.

Owned and operated by renowned

herbalist and naturopath Valmai Becker,

dedicated to the growing and practical use

of herbal medicine.

“Herbal Medicine is for healing,

health and wellbeing and has long been

considered the medicine of the people,”

said Valmai. “This is where healing plants

and kitchen pharmacy meet, and medicine

making begins.”

Located in the picturesque Okuti Valley, the farm

spans 9 hectares of luscious gardens with purposebuilt

herb and drying shed. On site, Valmai offers

an apprenticeship programme, seasonal workshops,

informative garden tours and an array of products for

sale. While casual drop-in’s are always welcome, Valmai

says pre-booking on email valmai@phytofarm.co.nz or

03 325 1314 is best.

One-hour garden tours include tea blending and cover

the seasonal changes as well as a variety of medicinal

plants.

been harvested, dried and stripped stored for winter

use,” explains Valmai. “The stored aromatic plants are

ideal for crushing, blending and combining with high

quality essential oils allowing us to create warming and

nourishing winter treats. Our purpose built workshop

sheds provide a cosy atmosphere for making your own

natural preservative free skin care products.”

Winter Workshops are scheduled for Tuesday 18

Tantrum to the power of 10

I HAD TWO pretty decent

sleep-ins last week.

I mean I had to travel to

Australia to get them, and

one of those included being

a bit worse for wear. Still, it

was good to get some extra

shut-eye.

However, poor Laura got

stuck inside while I was

away thanks to the nasty

weather. If you remember

back to early April when I

was away in Hamilton she

copped the same.

It must be a curse or

something.

My flight didn’t get in

until 1am on Tuesday

morning, so I only ended

up getting about four hours

sleep before a little smiling

face was pressed close to

mine to get me up.

I was stoked, I had

missed Vittoria heaps while

I was away.

While I was gone she’s

mastered her little pushcar

and worked out how to

turn up the tantrum power

to 10.

With average weather

striking again on Tuesday,

riding her little car up and

down the drive wasn’t a

full-day option.

Laura was on leave so the

three of us packed up the

car and headed to Lyttelton

for a family lunch out.

Bubs behaved like an

After eating we went

out onto a deck area to

see the view of the port

when Vittoria spotted an

excellent way to show off

her tantrum skills – some

Not letting her go down

those was cause for a

full-blown meltdown at

me, crying and screaming

Good thing I’ve

developed a healthy level of

not getting stressed about

what bystanders think.

When I tried to give her

a cuddle to calm her down,

she ran away for a cuddle

from mum instead and her

stroppy attitude lasted all

the way back to the car.

Still, it was nice to see

Vittoria turn to Laura for a

change.

I’m sure, in spite of the

tears and noise, that Laura

would have appreciated that

too.

Bay Harbour News’

coverage of a plan to

open a liquor store in

Redcliffs

Sandy Cassels – It

seems to me the residents

of Redcliffs are being

steam rolled and bullied

into this liquor outlet.

Did the so-called agencies

– police, health and city

council licensing inspector

–front up to the meetings

and hear the residents’

representatives concerns

or just rubber stamp sets of

data given? Because if this

goes ahead, the police will

be very busy with call-outs

and the hospital emergency

department, already

overworked with drug and

alcohol patients, will be

seeing more.

This quiet contemplative

community is a safe place

for the elderly, families

and visitors to come and

enjoy. We need more of

them. Enhance the good

stuff, such as the Coastal

Pathway.

Why introduce a

negative? There is plenty of

evidence during summer in

other harbour bays where

alcohol-infused, antisocial

behaviour happens,

including loud boozeinfused

conversations and

group activities, regardless

of others. And, of course,

litter just left.

Leave Redcliffs alone.

There is the New World in

Redcliffs across the road

from the proposed outlet

for alcohol purchases.

It doesn’t need more. If

people need harder stuff

there are other outlets

close by. Where are the

local politicians and

councillors? Surely their

job is to meet the needs of

the community and not

let booze barons walk over

them. Come on.

Bronwen Summers

– Kia ora. It is time that

communities make their

own decisions about

whether alcohol, fast

food and pokie machine

places are allowed in their

community. The residents’

decision should be final.

Happy birthday station 28

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

writes about

the Sumner

Volunteer

Fire Brigade’s

125th

birthday

THE FIRST post-European

recognised voluntary

organisation in New Zealand

was the Women’s Christian

Temperance Union, which was

formed in 1885 – 134 years ago.

Just 11 years later in 1894, the

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade

was established – happy 125th

birthday station 28.

The brigade held its 2019

annual general meeting on its

125th birthday – June 5 – and it

was a fine occasion. As well as

the usual AGM activities, the

brigade and invited guests were

treated to wonderful tales of

previous exploits from United

Fire Brigades Association past

president Alan Cockburn,

including a story about the

late Russ Kerr breaking into

an empty house to get access

to a phone (no cellphones in

those days and the fire truck

communication link was

broken) to call for back up.

This action probably saved

LOCAL LEGENDS: Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade members take a moment to reflect

during their 150th annual general meeting.

many houses in the Moncks

Bay area from the fierce bush

fire that was sweeping down

the hill towards them.

The health and safety rep at

the brigade probably had their

hair standing on end when

they heard the stories of trucks

loaded up with firefighters who

were just hanging on the back

– no seat belts in those days

either.

The brigade has such a rich

history. Its role has evolved

from strictly fighting fires

to attending to medical

emergencies, motor vehicle

accidents, search and rescue,

civil defence and natural

disaster responses. We know

very well the contribution they

made during the earthquakes

and Port Hills fire.

It’s sometimes easy to forget

that the men and women of the

brigade undertake their study,

training and rostered shifts on

top of their day jobs.

It’s a huge commitment to

our community and these

volunteers richly deserve the

thanks and respect of us all.

They are wonderfully

supported by their families and

their employers, without whose

backing it would be impossible

to operate.

Best wishes for the next

125 years station 28 and

thank you past and present

brigade members for all you do

for us.

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

BATTLING: Sumner’s scrum continued to dominate this season by winning a penalty try during their 27-20 victory over HSOB. Josh Loader is congratulated for

scoring after charging down a kick.

Scrum pivotal to Sumner’s success

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER FINISHED an

otherwise ordinary first phase

of the metro premier rugby

competition in style with a 27-20

win over High School Old Boys.

The result saw Sumner finish

the opening round-robin with

four wins and seven losses. The

win over HSOB now means

they will enter the bottom six

competition with momentum.

Coach Martin Dodgson was

full of praise for assistant Gareth

D’Almeida, who came up with

the team’s game plan to nullify

HSOB’s playmakers.

“We knew we just had to make

it a mess out of the breakdowns

and be quite narrow in defence

. . . the wind also helped, it was a

cross wind, so trying to move the

ball from one side to the other

against the wind was near on

impossible,” said Dodgson.

“Mentally we were right on

song and then the scrum just laid

the most ridiculous platform.”

SPORT

Sumner’s dominance at

scrum time was evident with

a penalty try after winning a

scrum penalty 7m out from the

HSOB line.

Earlier on, halfback Hayden

O’Donnell opened the scoring

for Sumner with a try. The match

was all but wrapped up with

10min remaining when lock Josh

Loader charged down Fletcher-

Smith just inside his own 22m

line, before running onto collect

the ball on a difficult bounce and

cross the line.

Following the restart, HSOB

scored a late consolation try to

make the final score 27-20.

Sumner’s backline will receive

a boost this week with the

addition of a number of players.

English half-back James Elliot

was impressive in the division

two side’s 10-66 loss to HSOB on

Saturday. He is expected to make

his debut for the premier team

this weekend.

Meanwhile, outside back Poasa

Cama saw his first action of the

year when he played 40min at

fullback for the division two side

after returning from a serious

knee injury.

On Saturday, Sumner will host

Belfast at St Leonards Square

in their first bottom six match.

Kick-off is at 2.45pm.

Colorado makes easy work of cross trainer

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

YOU’D THINK after writing

about cars for

30 years there would be

few things in a motor vehicle

that would get the better of me in

terms of technology.

There’s nothing more

embarrassing than having to go

back to a dealership admitting

defeat and asking how something

works.

Well, that happened to me with

Holden’s latest Z71 Colorado,

quite simply I couldn’t get the

deck cover off. The friendly sales

staff at Blackwells quickly showed

me how it was done, and I was on

my way.

I was quite anxious to

have access to the deck area

as my wife’s cross trainer

needed workshop repair, and

transporting it on the back of a

ute was the most sensible option.

I also used it to take a load of

green waste to the recycling

centre.

Quite obviously, these tasks

were no match for the Colorado’s

1000kg load capacity, but they

did serve to prove how adaptable

the modern ute has become,

and if you add in a 3500kg tow

rating the Colorado is right up

there in terms of load carrying

performance.

However, as much as it is a

standout in terms of practicality,

the Z71 four-wheel-drive double

cab is aimed more towards the

recreational buyer, it has decals,

stripes, body kit and a high level

of specification, full leather trim

is some indication as to how it sits

in the market.

There are also many unseen

specification elements, the

Colorado is state of the art in

terms of electronic inclusions

for safety, while comfort and

convenience items are generous.

It is very modern in the cockpit,

while seating comfort for five is

guaranteed.

Under the bonnet sits a

2.8-litre, four-cylinder twincamshaft

turbocharged diesel

engine. It is rated by Holden

at 147kW, and with 500Nm of

torque available at just 2000rpm

it is a powerhouse, easily on a par

with all of its competitors.

Drive is harnessed through a

six-speed automatic transmission.

A manual is available, but it won’t

compete with the auto in terms of

sales figures. Bear in mind, too,

the manual has a lower engine

torque figure of 440Nm.

Shifts in the auto are smooth,

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Versatile, go-anywhere double cab

ute.

and the gearing is such that it

provides relaxed motoring at

highway speed, along with the

ratios needed for slow speed, offthe-seal

travel.

Backing up that theory is

the fitment of a true low ratio

transfer box, it is manipulated

electronically by a consolemounted

dial switch at the

driver’s command.

Because I was travelling alone I

didn’t take the

Z71 off-road, instead, I spent

most of my time

with the Z71 at highway speed

and my regular commute. In

those conditions it seems more

car-like than ute-like.

Sure, at well over 5m there is a

lot of bulk to manoeuvre in close

confine situations, but it’s no

worse than any other vehicle of

its type. If you take into account

the numbers that are being sold,

buyers quite obviously don’t rate

that as a challenge.

On the open road, the engine

turns over slowly at 1550rpm

at 100km/h in top gear. At that

speed it returns a 6.2-litre per

100km (46mpg) instantaneous

fuel usage figure and that

accounted for a 9.4l/100km

(30mpg) average figure during

my time with the ute.

That correlates well

with the 8.7l/100km (32mpg)

figure Holden claims for a

combined cycle average.

Road and wind noise are both

kept to a minimum, and the

Colorado as a series imparts

a smooth ride. Of course, it is

better with a bit of weight in the

back, but the reality is the load

bearing suspension is relatively

absorbent and the cab doesn’t

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

jiggle unnecessarily on uneven

surfaces.

That’s an area where

local research and development

pays dividends. Holden Australia

places a huge emphasis on

developing vehicles for down

under conditions, and

it certainly shows in Colorado.

The ride is acceptable, while and

the entire in-cabin experience is

comfortable.

I guess it would need to be

welcoming. The Z71 listing at

$66,990 is a bit of an outlay, but

if you get to the dealership before

the end of June you will be in line

for a tempting Feildays bargain,

and with the amount of on-board

kit it would be a very worthy

purchase.

Even though the

Z71’s flashy bits disguise

its traditional ute look, make

no mistake, the Z71 is still the

quintessential Colorado which

has carved out a huge reputation

as a tough, go-anywhere worker.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

passion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

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

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

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

“I’d like to think so because the
