Push to<br />

restore<br />

signal<br />

tower<br />

lights<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

SUMNER resident Toni<br />

Pengelly has a special<br />

connection to the Cave Rock<br />

signal tower.<br />

Her grandfather Jack Kerr<br />

served as a crew member for<br />

the Sumner Lifeboat Institution<br />

from 1940 to 1987.<br />

During his time as skipper, he<br />

relied on information and lighting<br />

from the signal tower, which<br />

served as their control tower, to<br />

complete rescues.<br />

However, the tower has not<br />

been illuminated for at least 10<br />

years.<br />

Ms Pengelly, alongside the<br />

Sumner-Redcliffs Historical<br />

Society, is on a mission to get<br />

the lights back on the signal<br />

tower.<br />

The city council has said it<br />

would be open to the idea of<br />

lights being reinstalled but has<br />

no funding available. Formal<br />

access agreements would also<br />

be required but have not been<br />

given at this stage<br />

Port works<br />

delay<br />

electricity<br />

cable<br />

project<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

A MULTI-MILLION dollar<br />

electricity upgrade for Lyttelton,<br />

Corsair <strong>Bay</strong> and Cass <strong>Bay</strong> has<br />

been delayed.<br />

A $3 million, 2.2km electricity<br />

cable was pulled through Lyttelton<br />

Tunnel in April.<br />

Orion general manager of<br />

infrastructure Steve Macdonald<br />

said it was the biggest cable pull<br />

in Orion’s history and possibly in<br />

New Zealand’s.<br />

It was originally expected that<br />

the new cable would be fully operational<br />

by the end of May.<br />

However, the cable is now not<br />

expected to be operational until<br />

the end of July.<br />

“Orion opted to delay their project<br />

while other works were being<br />

undertaken in the area where<br />

their cable is to be laid. This delay<br />

is to ensure the integrity of the<br />

cable,” he said.<br />

The new cable which consists<br />

of three separate single core<br />

cables has a power rating of 10<br />

megawatts, three megawatts<br />

greater than the current average<br />

demand which allows capacity for<br />

growth.<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

WHAT A great idea on page 1 today –<br />

light up the signal tower on Cave Rock.<br />

Resident Toni Pengelly and the Sumner-<br />

Redcliffs Historical Society are behind the<br />

initiative.<br />

Lighting up the signal tower would be<br />

great for the business area and Cave Rock itself.<br />

Toni’s grandfather and uncles did their bit for the lifeboat<br />

institution over the years, where they relied on information<br />

relayed to them from the signal tower while out on rescues.<br />

And the lit up tower also acted like a lighthouse in poor<br />

weather.<br />

The spotlight for paying for the lighting will go squarely on<br />

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board. The city<br />

council says it doesn’t have anything in the coffers for it.<br />

Battle over reserve toilets ends<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

THE controversial toilets which<br />

led to the city council being<br />

threatened with legal action will<br />

not return to Britomart Reserve<br />

in Akaroa next cruise ship<br />

season.<br />

The temporary Portacom<br />

toilets were put in the reserve<br />

in December to cater for the<br />

increasing number of cruise ship<br />

passengers coming to the area.<br />

However, the city council<br />

placed them there without<br />

resource consent.<br />

City council manager of<br />

community parks Al Hardy<br />

said the failure to get resource<br />

consent for the toilets was an<br />

oversight by staff, which was<br />

described as “embarrassing” by<br />

Banks Peninsula city councillor<br />

and Deputy Mayor Andrew<br />

Turner.<br />

This led to the body corporate,<br />

which represents the Bruce<br />

Waterfront Apartments across<br />

the road from the reserve,<br />

threatening the city council with<br />

legal action.<br />

The city council is now<br />

planning to increase the capacity<br />

of the Place de la Poste toilets at<br />

2 Rue Balguerie to accommodate<br />

tourists. The construction of<br />

the new toilet block is due to be<br />

completed by Christmas.<br />

A spokesman for the body<br />

corporate was delighted with<br />

the news the toilets would not be<br />

returning.<br />

“Hoorah. It’s great to hear that<br />

they are gone and they won’t be<br />

coming back. That is just great<br />

news from where we are sitting,”<br />

he said.<br />

He said the toilets were a<br />

massive nuisance for people<br />

staying in the apartments.<br />

“We had a lot of disgruntled<br />

owners and guests, particularly<br />

when they were pumping (the<br />

toilets) out as early as they could.<br />

They were basically doing it at<br />

daybreak, it was well before seven<br />

o’clock.”<br />

HEDGE FIRE<br />

It took 14 firefighters to<br />

contain a 5m hedge fire in<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> on Sunday.<br />

The fire was close to three<br />

properties on Whero Ave<br />

and took 15min to put out. It<br />

started after ashes were put<br />

under the hedge by one of the<br />

residents. The fire destroyed<br />

the hedge and a garden shed.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade fire chief Bob<br />

Palmer said it was important<br />

people disposed of ashes<br />

safely, drowning them until<br />

they are completely cold<br />

before dumping them near<br />

any vegetation.<br />

WHARF IDEAS WANTED<br />

The city council will<br />

start collecting ideas from<br />

the public on the design of<br />

the new Akaroa wharf. A<br />

meeting to share ideas will be<br />

held at the Akaroa Bowling<br />

Club today at 1pm. Public<br />

consultation for the wharf<br />

will be open until <strong>June</strong> 26.<br />

The current wharf had<br />

a structural condition<br />

assessment late last year,<br />

which identified it was<br />

reaching the end of its life.<br />

This is due to the declining<br />

condition of the hardwood<br />

timber, particularly the<br />

timber below water.<br />

Feedback on<br />

Godley House<br />

site sought<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

DIAMOND <strong>Harbour</strong> residents<br />

will get a chance to have their say<br />

on the Godley House site’s future.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge said public<br />

consultation on what will happen<br />

to the reserve land around<br />

Godley House will start next<br />

month.<br />

“The consultation will involve<br />

asking the community what<br />

they would like to use the area<br />

for, keeping in mind the land is<br />

a reserve under the Reserves Act<br />

1977,” he said.<br />

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

Association chairman Richard<br />

Suggate said there was a wide<br />

range of views on what should<br />

happen to the site.<br />

Mr Rutledge said the<br />

foundations of Godley House will<br />

remain untouched.<br />

“These foundations have<br />

heritage value and form part<br />

of the history of the area. To<br />

protect the foundations for future<br />

generations, they should not be<br />

built over, removed or damaged,”<br />

he said.<br />

The site was last occupied by<br />

the Dark Star Ale House and<br />

Cafe, which closed at the start of<br />

March.<br />

Ms Pengelly said they would<br />

be approaching the Linwood-<br />

Central-Heathcote Community<br />

Board for funding once they<br />

had been granted permission to<br />

progress with the project.<br />

She thought the lights would<br />

add to the beauty of Sumner.<br />

“I remember the days the cross<br />

was lit up, it was fabulous, it was<br />

just spectacular. The absence<br />

of the lights has been a real loss<br />

to the community since they<br />

The project is the culmination of<br />

three years of planning by Orion<br />

Lyttelton.<br />

The new 11kV electricity cable<br />

will run in tandem with the two<br />

existing 11kV cables which run<br />

over the Port Hills.<br />

“The lines over the hill are vulnerable<br />

to weather, vegetation and<br />

pests. With the new cable we have<br />

alternatives to keep the power on,”<br />

Mr Macdonald said.<br />

“It gives us the ability to grow<br />

aesthetics and the historical<br />

significance,” she said.<br />

The signal mast was constructed<br />

on Cave Rock by the regional<br />

council in 1864. This was in<br />

response to demands from<br />

shipping companies to make<br />

the Sumner entrance safer for<br />

trading vessels travelling to the<br />

Heathcote wharves at Woolston.<br />

Prior to the advent of electric<br />

light, the original signals on the<br />

mast had specific meanings.<br />

One was three red balls hung<br />

from the mast which meant the<br />

bar was dangerous. A red flag at<br />

the masthead meant bad weather.<br />

The original signal station<br />

became the Sumner Lifeboat Institution’s<br />

control tower in 1958<br />

when a base radio transmitter<br />

was installed to communicate<br />

directly with the lifeboat when<br />

she was at sea. The station was<br />

staffed by shore crew with<br />

binoculars who could update the<br />

crew with information rapidly.<br />

Rescue operations were<br />

directed from Cave Rock until<br />

1980 when a mobile control<br />

was installed in the lifeboat’s<br />

RELOCATION: Nine peacocks have been moved from the Port Hills to a farm in<br />

Marlborough after five were shot last month.<br />

Under-threat peacocks<br />

moved off Port Hills<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

NINE peacocks were<br />

relocated from the Port<br />

Hills on Monday after five<br />

were shot last month.<br />

The peacocks have been<br />

relocated to a farm in<br />

Marlborough.<br />

However, seven peacocks<br />

remain.<br />

The relocation effort<br />

comes after a neighbourly<br />

dispute between Janelle<br />

Wills, who feeds the wild<br />

peacocks, and farmer Sue<br />

Stubevoll, who does not<br />

want them wandering on<br />

to her property.<br />

In February, Ms<br />

Stubenvoll sent a legal<br />

letter to Miss Wills, saying<br />

she had the right to shoot<br />

the peacocks under the<br />

Impounding Act. She gave<br />

Miss Wills four weeks<br />

notice.<br />

Last month, Ms<br />

Stubenvoll arranged for<br />

someone to shoot five<br />

peacocks which were on<br />

her property.<br />

She then skinned,<br />

roasted and ate one of them<br />

for dinner.<br />

Ms Stubenvoll said she<br />

has not decided whether<br />

she will shoot more.<br />

News of the incident<br />

appalled local residents,<br />

with some taking to the<br />

community Facebook<br />

group ‘Lyttelton – Ain’t No<br />

Place I’d Rather Be’ to vent<br />

their anger.<br />

Ms Stubenvoll then<br />

called the police after she<br />

was branded a murderer by<br />

various residents.<br />

She told <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

News the culling was to<br />

prevent the peacocks eating<br />

the rare gecko and skink<br />

populations which live on<br />

the farm.<br />

The story featured<br />

on Seven Sharp where<br />

celebrity chef Richard Till<br />

cooked and ate one of the<br />

peacocks.<br />

Miss Wills said she did<br />

not watch it.<br />

She said she was still<br />

losing sleep after five of the<br />

peacocks were shot.<br />

“It is still very stressful<br />

because we don’t want to<br />

wake up to more dead,” she<br />

said.<br />

Miss Wills said she needs<br />

more time to relocate the<br />

remaining seven.<br />

Have your wheelie bins<br />

got their electronic tags?<br />

CHECK your wheelie bins<br />

have been electronically<br />

tagged because those<br />

without will soon stop<br />

being emptied.<br />

For the past three years<br />

Waste Management Ltd<br />

has been carrying out a<br />

stocktake of wheelie bins<br />

for the city council.<br />

As part of the stocktake,<br />

they have been fitting the<br />

wheelie bins allocated to<br />

each property with a radio<br />

frequency identification<br />

tag that emits a short range<br />

signal.<br />

The signal can be picked<br />

up by the kerbside collection<br />

trucks and used<br />

to identify if a bin is on a<br />

property where it does not<br />

belong.<br />

The RFID tags will help<br />

identify lost or stolen bins<br />

and reduce the cost of the<br />

kerbside collection by ensuring<br />

only bins that people<br />

are entitled to, and have<br />

paid for, are being emptied.<br />

“We are nearing the end<br />

of the stocktake, which<br />

means that most wheelie<br />

bins should have been<br />

tagged by now. You can<br />

tell if your bin has been<br />

tagged because it will have<br />

a small reflective sticker on<br />

the side,’’ city council solid<br />

said.<br />

Surveys show more<br />

needs to be done to<br />

fix water and roads<br />

WATER AND the state of roads<br />

are the two major sources of<br />

discontent among the city’s<br />

residents.<br />

The point of contact survey and<br />

the general service satisfaction<br />

survey are two of the measures<br />

the city council uses to gauge its<br />

performance and identify areas<br />

for improvement.<br />

The condition of roads and<br />

footpaths, and the quality of<br />

water, remain a source<br />

of discontent for<br />

people.<br />

“It is clear from<br />

the point of contact<br />

survey results that<br />

residents want<br />

better maintenance<br />

and upkeep of our<br />

community parks,<br />

wharves and jetties<br />

and cemeteries,” chief<br />

executive Karleen<br />

Edwards said.<br />

The general service<br />

satisfaction survey shows 62<br />

per cent of people surveyed are<br />

generally satisfied with the city<br />

council’s performance – up from<br />

55 per cent last year.<br />

In the general service<br />

satisfaction survey, roading<br />

remains the most commonly<br />

Karleen<br />

Edwards<br />

cited area for improvement,<br />

followed by the water supply.<br />

“Before the earthquakes, we<br />

spent about $70 million a year, in<br />

today’s dollars, on maintaining,<br />

renewing and upgrading the<br />

city’s roads and footpaths. In this<br />

current year, we are spending $86<br />

million,” Dr Edwards said.<br />

She said it is also investing in<br />

the water supply.<br />

“Unfortunately we have had to<br />

chlorinate the water<br />

while that work is<br />

done. As a result, we<br />

have seen satisfaction<br />

with the quality of our<br />

water drop from 79 per<br />

cent last year to 37 per<br />

cent,” she said.<br />

“By the end of May,<br />

about 90 per cent of<br />

Christchurch’s water<br />

supply is expected to<br />

be chlorine-free and we<br />

are working to remove<br />

the chlorine from<br />

the remaining water supply as<br />

quickly as possible.”<br />

Secrets of Silvergum<br />

by Mandy Magro<br />

Bestselling Australian author Mandy Magro returns with<br />

a compelling rural romance about love and the cost of<br />

keeping secrets.<br />

Can dark family secrets ever truly be buried?<br />

When a horrible twist of fate leaves teenage friends Emma<br />

Kensington and Zane Wolfe reeling in the wake of a fatal<br />

accident, the two are driven apart for decades.<br />

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

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

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

stepfather’s sudden death means keeping half a world between them is no longer<br />

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

control?<br />

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

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

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

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

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

she loves most...<br />

Cinders and Sparks – Magic at Midnight<br />

by Lindsey Kelk<br />

Perfect for readers of 7–9, Cinders & Sparks is a fresh, funny and fabulous take on<br />

Cinderella, for everyone who loved Frozen and Shrek.<br />

She will go to the ball. But nothing will go to plan...<br />

A magic girl.<br />

A talking dog.<br />

Let’s get this party started...<br />

Cinders lives a boring life with her selfish stepsisters and mean stepmother. So when<br />

her wishes start magically coming true it’s a surprise to say the least.<br />

Then Cinders meets her fairy godmother: she’s magic, she can fly, and she’s called...<br />

Brian.<br />

Soon, Cinders finds herself heading to the glamorous ball at the King’s palace. But<br />

Brian is NOT very reliable and Cinders is NOT very good at magic. Now her life isn’t<br />

boring at all – it’s total chaos!<br />

WORK IN PROGRESS: The removal of the remnant<br />

piles at Naval Point began on Thursday.<br />

Pile removal under way<br />

weather dependent.<br />

The 52 piles have been at Naval<br />

Point since 2000 after the planned<br />

Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> Marina was<br />

devastated in a storm.<br />

City council capital delivery<br />

community manager Darren<br />

Moses said the project would<br />

cost between $250,000 and<br />

$300,000.<br />

When removed, the piles will<br />

contribute to the LPC’s land<br />

reclamation project where it is<br />

working towards extending the<br />

container terminal by another<br />

6ha on top of the existing 10ha of<br />

reclaimed land.<br />

The city council also<br />

has further plans for the<br />

development of Naval<br />

Point.<br />

“Options are currently<br />

being developed for a plan to<br />

improve the wider area. Public<br />

consultation will be carried out<br />

following the completion of a<br />

Naval Point development plan<br />

for people to give feedback on,”<br />

A VOLUNTARY levy to fund<br />

the Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre<br />

does not look far away.<br />

The Lyttelton Port Company<br />

is now finalising the operational<br />

details of the levy.<br />

LPC strategic engagement<br />

manager Phil de Joux said the<br />

port company was also doubling<br />

its annual funding towards the<br />

centre to $10,000.<br />

Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre<br />

Charitable Trust chairman<br />

John McLister saw this as a positive<br />

step forward.<br />

However, he thought more<br />

could be done.<br />

“I don’t see it as a perfect situation<br />

because ideally if you have<br />

a compulsory levy it is going to<br />

deliver all the funding you need.<br />

If you have a voluntary levy<br />

Akaroa’s 130 year old<br />

wharf needs replacing<br />

To help us design a new wharf, we’d like to hear your ideas.<br />

Tell us what’s important to you, what works well with the current<br />

wharf and what could make it better. We want to get it right!<br />

Funding options set to<br />

help seafarers’ centre<br />

some will choose not to pay it,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr de Joux thought the voluntary<br />

levy would be sufficient.<br />

“At this stage, we are confident<br />

that a voluntary levy will be<br />

successful, as it will be at a<br />

modest level and will help<br />

support services provided<br />

directly to the crews of vessels.”<br />

The centre has had more than<br />

10,000 visits from seafarers since<br />

it opened three years ago.<br />

The centre provides seafarers<br />

with assistance, amenities, care,<br />

support and Wi-Fi so they can<br />

contact their families back home.<br />

“Ultimately our bottom line<br />

is shipping companies, port<br />

companies and councils that own<br />

the ports, profit from seafarers<br />

and they should contribute to<br />

their welfare while they are<br />

ashore,” Rev McLister said.<br />

Tantrum to the power of 10<br />

I HAD TWO pretty decent<br />

sleep-ins last week.<br />

I mean I had to travel to<br />

Australia to get them, and<br />

one of those included being<br />

a bit worse for wear. Still, it<br />

was good to get some extra<br />

shut-eye.<br />

However, poor Laura got<br />

stuck inside while I was<br />

away thanks to the nasty<br />

weather. If you remember<br />

back to early April when I<br />

was away in Hamilton she<br />

copped the same.<br />

It must be a curse or<br />

something.<br />

My flight didn’t get in<br />

until 1am on Tuesday<br />

morning, so I only ended<br />

up getting about four hours<br />

sleep before a little smiling<br />

face was pressed close to<br />

mine to get me up.<br />

I was stoked, I had<br />

missed Vittoria heaps while<br />

I was away.<br />

While I was gone she’s<br />

mastered her little pushcar<br />

and worked out how to<br />

turn up the tantrum power<br />

to 10.<br />

With average weather<br />

striking again on Tuesday,<br />

riding her little car up and<br />

down the drive wasn’t a<br />

full-day option.<br />

Laura was on leave so the<br />

three of us packed up the<br />

car and headed to Lyttelton<br />

for a family lunch out.<br />

Bubs behaved like an<br />

DELICIOUS: Vittoria<br />

getting in a quick fluffy<br />

before showing off her<br />

tantrum skills.<br />

angel the whole time.<br />

After eating we went<br />

out onto a deck area to<br />

see the view of the port<br />

when Vittoria spotted an<br />

excellent way to show off<br />

her tantrum skills – some<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

slippery looking stairs that<br />

had toddler head injury<br />

written all over them.<br />

Not letting her go down<br />

those was cause for a<br />

full-blown meltdown at<br />

me, crying and screaming<br />

right beside some strangers<br />

enjoying a coffee catch-up.<br />

Good thing I’ve<br />

developed a healthy level of<br />

not getting stressed about<br />

what bystanders think.<br />

When I tried to give her<br />

a cuddle to calm her down,<br />

she ran away for a cuddle<br />

from mum instead and her<br />

stroppy attitude lasted all<br />

the way back to the car.<br />

Still, it was nice to see<br />

Vittoria turn to Laura for a<br />

change.<br />

I’m sure, in spite of the<br />

tears and noise, that Laura<br />

would have appreciated that<br />

too.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News’<br />

coverage of a plan to<br />

open a liquor store in<br />

Redcliffs<br />

Sandy Cassels – It<br />

seems to me the residents<br />

of Redcliffs are being<br />

steam rolled and bullied<br />

into this liquor outlet.<br />

Did the so-called agencies<br />

– police, health and city<br />

council licensing inspector<br />

–front up to the meetings<br />

and hear the residents’<br />

representatives concerns<br />

or just rubber stamp sets of<br />

data given? Because if this<br />

goes ahead, the police will<br />

be very busy with call-outs<br />

and the hospital emergency<br />

department, already<br />

overworked with drug and<br />

alcohol patients, will be<br />

seeing more.<br />

This quiet contemplative<br />

community is a safe place<br />

for the elderly, families<br />

and visitors to come and<br />

enjoy. We need more of<br />

them. Enhance the good<br />

stuff, such as the Coastal<br />

Pathway.<br />

Why introduce a<br />

negative? There is plenty of<br />

evidence during summer in<br />

other harbour bays where<br />

alcohol-infused, antisocial<br />

behaviour happens,<br />

including loud boozeinfused<br />

conversations and<br />

group activities, regardless<br />

of others. And, of course,<br />

litter just left.<br />

Leave Redcliffs alone.<br />

There is the New World in<br />

Redcliffs across the road<br />

from the proposed outlet<br />

for alcohol purchases.<br />

It doesn’t need more. If<br />

people need harder stuff<br />

there are other outlets<br />

close by. Where are the<br />

local politicians and<br />

councillors? Surely their<br />

job is to meet the needs of<br />

the community and not<br />

let booze barons walk over<br />

them. Come on.<br />

Bronwen Summers<br />

– Kia ora. It is time that<br />

communities make their<br />

own decisions about<br />

whether alcohol, fast<br />

food and pokie machine<br />

places are allowed in their<br />

community. The residents’<br />

decision should be final.<br />

Happy birthday station 28<br />

Port Hills MP<br />

Ruth Dyson<br />

writes about<br />

the Sumner<br />

Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade’s<br />

<strong>12</strong>5th<br />

birthday<br />

THE FIRST post-European<br />

recognised voluntary<br />

organisation in New Zealand<br />

was the Women’s Christian<br />

Temperance Union, which was<br />

formed in 1885 – 134 years ago.<br />

Just 11 years later in 1894, the<br />

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade<br />

was established – happy <strong>12</strong>5th<br />

birthday station 28.<br />

The brigade held its <strong>2019</strong><br />

annual general meeting on its<br />

<strong>12</strong>5th birthday – <strong>June</strong> 5 – and it<br />

was a fine occasion. As well as<br />

the usual AGM activities, the<br />

brigade and invited guests were<br />

treated to wonderful tales of<br />

previous exploits from United<br />

Fire Brigades Association past<br />

president Alan Cockburn,<br />

including a story about the<br />

late Russ Kerr breaking into<br />

an empty house to get access<br />

to a phone (no cellphones in<br />

those days and the fire truck<br />

communication link was<br />

broken) to call for back up.<br />

This action probably saved<br />

LOCAL LEGENDS: Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade members take a moment to reflect<br />

during their 150th annual general meeting.<br />

many houses in the Moncks<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> area from the fierce bush<br />

fire that was sweeping down<br />

the hill towards them.<br />

The health and safety rep at<br />

the brigade probably had their<br />

hair standing on end when<br />

they heard the stories of trucks<br />

loaded up with firefighters who<br />

were just hanging on the back<br />

– no seat belts in those days<br />

either.<br />

The brigade has such a rich<br />

history. Its role has evolved<br />

from strictly fighting fires<br />

to attending to medical<br />

emergencies, motor vehicle<br />

accidents, search and rescue,<br />

civil defence and natural<br />

disaster responses. We know<br />

very well the contribution they<br />

made during the earthquakes<br />

and Port Hills fire.<br />

It’s sometimes easy to forget<br />

that the men and women of the<br />

brigade undertake their study,<br />

training and rostered shifts on<br />

top of their day jobs.<br />

It’s a huge commitment to<br />

our community and these<br />

volunteers richly deserve the<br />

thanks and respect of us all.<br />

They are wonderfully<br />

supported by their families and<br />

their employers, without whose<br />

backing it would be impossible<br />

to operate.<br />

Best wishes for the next<br />

<strong>12</strong>5 years station 28 and<br />

thank you past and present<br />

brigade members for all you do<br />

for us.<br />

Thank you for<br />

helping your<br />

Fall Zones<br />

community<br />

To all of you who have had your<br />

trees trimmed before they became<br />

a problem, thank you for keeping all<br />

the families in your community warm,<br />

happy, healthy and connected.<br />

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your<br />

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge<br />

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what<br />

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here<br />

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.<br />

Notice and Growth limit zones<br />

We’re not exaggerating.<br />

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are<br />

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact<br />

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from<br />

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from<br />

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are<br />

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.<br />

How close is too close?<br />

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,<br />

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk<br />

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.<br />

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees<br />

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from<br />

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.<br />

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and<br />

preferably the notice zone.<br />

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the<br />

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need<br />

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,<br />

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to<br />

disease or adverse weather events.<br />

Where do I start?<br />

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around<br />

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree<br />

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange<br />

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however<br />

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.<br />

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four<br />

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from<br />

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any<br />

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.<br />

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?<br />

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree<br />

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim<br />

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you<br />

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,<br />

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every<br />

day or part day during which the offence continues.<br />

More info can be found on our website and if<br />

you have any questions or notice any trees<br />

touching power lines in your area, please call<br />

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.<br />

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<br />

scoring after charging down a kick.<br />

PHOTOS: ROZELLE MAY<br />

Scrum pivotal to Sumner’s success<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

SUMNER FINISHED an<br />

otherwise ordinary first phase<br />

of the metro premier rugby<br />

competition in style with a 27-20<br />

win over High School Old Boys.<br />

The result saw Sumner finish<br />

the opening round-robin with<br />

four wins and seven losses. The<br />

win over HSOB now means<br />

they will enter the bottom six<br />

competition with momentum.<br />

Coach Martin Dodgson was<br />

full of praise for assistant Gareth<br />

D’Almeida, who came up with<br />

the team’s game plan to nullify<br />

HSOB’s playmakers.<br />

“We knew we just had to make<br />

it a mess out of the breakdowns<br />

and be quite narrow in defence<br />

. . . the wind also helped, it was a<br />

cross wind, so trying to move the<br />

ball from one side to the other<br />

against the wind was near on<br />

impossible,” said Dodgson.<br />

“Mentally we were right on<br />

song and then the scrum just laid<br />

the most ridiculous platform.”<br />

SPORT<br />

Sumner’s dominance at<br />

scrum time was evident with<br />

a penalty try after winning a<br />

scrum penalty 7m out from the<br />

HSOB line.<br />

Earlier on, halfback Hayden<br />

O’Donnell opened the scoring<br />

for Sumner with a try. The match<br />

was all but wrapped up with<br />

10min remaining when lock Josh<br />

Loader charged down Fletcher-<br />

Smith just inside his own 22m<br />

line, before running onto collect<br />

the ball on a difficult bounce and<br />

cross the line.<br />

Following the restart, HSOB<br />

scored a late consolation try to<br />

make the final score 27-20.<br />

Sumner’s backline will receive<br />

a boost this week with the<br />

addition of a number of players.<br />

English half-back James Elliot<br />

was impressive in the division<br />

two side’s 10-66 loss to HSOB on<br />

Saturday. He is expected to make<br />

his debut for the premier team<br />

this weekend.<br />

Meanwhile, outside back Poasa<br />

Cama saw his first action of the<br />

year when he played 40min at<br />

fullback for the division two side<br />

after returning from a serious<br />

knee injury.<br />

On Saturday, Sumner will host<br />

Belfast at St Leonards Square<br />

in their first bottom six match.<br />

Kick-off is at 2.45pm.

Colorado makes easy work of cross trainer<br />

Motoring<br />

Ross Kiddie<br />

YOU’D THINK after writing<br />

about cars for<br />

30 years there would be<br />

few things in a motor vehicle<br />

that would get the better of me in<br />

terms of technology.<br />

There’s nothing more<br />

embarrassing than having to go<br />

back to a dealership admitting<br />

defeat and asking how something<br />

works.<br />

Well, that happened to me with<br />

Holden’s latest Z71 Colorado,<br />

quite simply I couldn’t get the<br />

deck cover off. The friendly sales<br />

staff at Blackwells quickly showed<br />

me how it was done, and I was on<br />

my way.<br />

I was quite anxious to<br />

have access to the deck area<br />

as my wife’s cross trainer<br />

needed workshop repair, and<br />

transporting it on the back of a<br />

ute was the most sensible option.<br />

I also used it to take a load of<br />

green waste to the recycling<br />

centre.<br />

Quite obviously, these tasks<br />

were no match for the Colorado’s<br />

1000kg load capacity, but they<br />

did serve to prove how adaptable<br />

the modern ute has become,<br />

and if you add in a 3500kg tow<br />

rating the Colorado is right up<br />

there in terms of load carrying<br />

performance.<br />

However, as much as it is a<br />

standout in terms of practicality,<br />

the Z71 four-wheel-drive double<br />

cab is aimed more towards the<br />

recreational buyer, it has decals,<br />

stripes, body kit and a high level<br />

of specification, full leather trim<br />

is some indication as to how it sits<br />

in the market.<br />

There are also many unseen<br />

specification elements, the<br />

Colorado is state of the art in<br />

terms of electronic inclusions<br />

for safety, while comfort and<br />

convenience items are generous.<br />

It is very modern in the cockpit,<br />

while seating comfort for five is<br />

guaranteed.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a<br />

2.8-litre, four-cylinder twincamshaft<br />

turbocharged diesel<br />

engine. It is rated by Holden<br />

at 147kW, and with 500Nm of<br />

torque available at just 2000rpm<br />

it is a powerhouse, easily on a par<br />

with all of its competitors.<br />

Drive is harnessed through a<br />

six-speed automatic transmission.<br />

A manual is available, but it won’t<br />

compete with the auto in terms of<br />

sales figures. Bear in mind, too,<br />

the manual has a lower engine<br />

torque figure of 440Nm.<br />

Shifts in the auto are smooth,<br />

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Versatile, go-anywhere double cab<br />

ute.<br />

and the gearing is such that it<br />

provides relaxed motoring at<br />

highway speed, along with the<br />

ratios needed for slow speed, offthe-seal<br />

travel.<br />

Backing up that theory is<br />

the fitment of a true low ratio<br />

transfer box, it is manipulated<br />

electronically by a consolemounted<br />

dial switch at the<br />

driver’s command.<br />

Because I was travelling alone I<br />

didn’t take the<br />

Z71 off-road, instead, I spent<br />

most of my time<br />

with the Z71 at highway speed<br />

and my regular commute. In<br />

those conditions it seems more<br />

car-like than ute-like.<br />

Sure, at well over 5m there is a<br />

lot of bulk to manoeuvre in close<br />

confine situations, but it’s no<br />

worse than any other vehicle of<br />

its type. If you take into account<br />

the numbers that are being sold,<br />

buyers quite obviously don’t rate<br />

that as a challenge.<br />

On the open road, the engine<br />

turns over slowly at 1550rpm<br />

at 100km/h in top gear. At that<br />

speed it returns a 6.2-litre per<br />

100km (46mpg) instantaneous<br />

fuel usage figure and that<br />

accounted for a 9.4l/100km<br />

(30mpg) average figure during<br />

my time with the ute.<br />

That correlates well<br />

with the 8.7l/100km (32mpg)<br />

figure Holden claims for a<br />

combined cycle average.<br />

Road and wind noise are both<br />

kept to a minimum, and the<br />

Colorado as a series imparts<br />

a smooth ride. Of course, it is<br />

better with a bit of weight in the<br />

back, but the reality is the load<br />

bearing suspension is relatively<br />

absorbent and the cab doesn’t<br />

• Price – Holden Colorado<br />

Z71, $66,900<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5361mm; width, 1872mm;<br />

height, 1800mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

2776cc, 147kW, 500Nm,<br />

six-speed automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 11sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km<br />

jiggle unnecessarily on uneven<br />

surfaces.<br />

That’s an area where<br />

local research and development<br />

pays dividends. Holden Australia<br />

places a huge emphasis on<br />

developing vehicles for down<br />

under conditions, and<br />

it certainly shows in Colorado.<br />

The ride is acceptable, while and<br />

the entire in-cabin experience is<br />

comfortable.<br />

I guess it would need to be<br />

welcoming. The Z71 listing at<br />

$66,990 is a bit of an outlay, but<br />

if you get to the dealership before<br />

the end of <strong>June</strong> you will be in line<br />

for a tempting Feildays bargain,<br />

and with the amount of on-board<br />

kit it would be a very worthy<br />

purchase.<br />

Even though the<br />

Z71’s flashy bits disguise<br />

its traditional ute look, make<br />

no mistake, the Z71 is still the<br />

quintessential Colorado which<br />

has carved out a huge reputation<br />

as a tough, go-anywhere worker.<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 />

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 />

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 <strong>June</strong>, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 20<strong>12</strong>. 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 />

However, the public has li tle<br />

Only eight submi sions were<br />

aimed at regulating commercial<br />

activities in public places.<br />

The district council wi l be<br />

holding a hearing for the Public<br />

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial<br />

Activities and Events in<br />

Public Places.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

held on Thursday.<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

number of mobile traders<br />

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,<br />

especia ly during the summer<br />

months.<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

council has received five inquiries<br />

about se ting up a mobile busine s<br />

on private or public land.<br />

A report said there are two<br />

educated on what soldiers<br />

But he said the presentation<br />

didn’t go into t o much detail<br />

and was more of a “show and<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 />

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-<br />

Ri carton Community Board<br />

has b en given the gr en ligh to<br />

o pose the pla ned qua ry near<br />

Templeton.<br />

Mayor 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 />

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 />

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 <strong>June</strong>, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 20<strong>12</strong>. 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 />

passion 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 />

A CRACKDOWN on mobile<br />

traders acro s the districts could<br />

be l oming.<br />

However, the public has li tle<br />

interest in having input into the<br />

i sue.<br />

Only eight submi sions were<br />

received for a potential bylaw<br />

aimed at regulating commercial<br />

activities in public places.<br />

The district council wi l be<br />

holding a hearing for the Public<br />

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial<br />

Activities and Events in<br />

Public Places.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

held on Thursday.<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

number of mobile traders<br />

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,<br />

especia ly during the summer<br />

months.<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

council has received five inquiries<br />

about se ting up a mobile busine s<br />

on private or public land.<br />

A report said there are two<br />

str et operators in Darfield, a<br />

coff e cart is parked beside the<br />

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za<br />

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en<br />

Pupils learn about role of war horses<br />

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils<br />

have taken a step back in time,<br />

s eing first hand what men and<br />

horses l oked like during war.<br />

The New Zealand Mounted<br />

Rifles Charitable Trust president<br />

Mark A pleton and member<br />

Mike Donaldson t ok their<br />

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

in a bid to educate pupils on the<br />

sacrifice their ancestors made in<br />

World War 1 and World War 2.<br />

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson<br />

a rived a the sch ol dre sed<br />

in World War 1 uniforms while<br />

their horses Tommy and Kruze<br />

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated<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 />

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-<br />

Ri carton Community Board<br />

has b en given the gr en ligh to<br />

o pose the pla ned qua ry near<br />

Templeton.<br />

Mayor Lianne 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 />
