Latham’s bid for council

Taking on

Templeton

in Heathcote

• By Louis Day

DARRELL LATHAM is making

no apologies for “rocking the

council’s boat” and has promised to

continue to do so if elected as a city

councillor.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member will

run as an independent against city

councillor Sara Templeton for the

Heathcote seat in October’s local

body elections.

Dr Latham, alongside Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

chairwoman and deputy chairman

Kim Money and Tim Sintes, and

city councillor David East, faced

code of conduct complaints last

year over an allegation he made that

city council staff had tampered with

the District Plan.

It came after a clause that gives

leeway to people in specific coastal

areas, deemed at risk of flooding,

to build and extend homes was

omitted from the plan. As a result

of the outspoken comments,

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods approved

the city council’s proposal to amend

the District Plan under section

71 of the Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act. •Turn to page 8

I FEEL a big contest coming on for the

Heathcote Ward seat at the local body

elections in October.

Today, we reveal Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board member

Darrell Latham is looking to take the next

step up in local politics (see page 1).

He has been a vocal community board member for the past

three years. He was also part of the group that took the city

council on over the District Plan and flooding issues, which led

to code of conduct complaints against them.

But their actions effectively forced the city council to change

its tune and amend the District Plan.

The ward’s sitting councillor, Sara Templeton, has had a good

first term, so an arm-wrestle for votes looms.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

ECan expects

draft report

next month

• By Louis Day

AN INVESTIGATION into the

environmental impact of cruise

ships in Akaroa is under way.

The report, being conducted by

the Cawthron Institute on behalf

of Environment Canterbury,

will outline the

impact of cruise

ships and provide

recommendations

on how to

minimise them. A

draft is expected

Jim Dilley

Harry

Stronach

by the end of next

month.

ECan regional

harbourmaster

Jim Dilley said

the results of the

inquiry could

Akaroa in the

future.

likely to be in breach of harbour

regulations.

The Regional Coastal

that is more than 40,000 gross

tonnes – of which 90 per cent of

the cruise ships visiting Akaroa

are – is likely to cause a seabed

disturbance at least 10 times the

permitted level, per visit.

This would be a breach of the

Resource Management Act’s

section 338. Every person who

commits an offence against this

section could be sent to prison

for up to two years or fined

$300,000. Organisations can be

fined up to $600,000.

Mr Dilley told Bay Harbour

News ECan acknowledges cruise

ships operating in Akaroa are

likely to be in breach of the

RMA.

However, he said without any

evidence, enforcement action

was not warranted.

RATES INCREASE

Akaroa residents could see their

rates bills increase by up to $520

over the next four years. The

potential rise comes after the city

council signed off on an annual

targeted rate of $130 to help fund

the Akaroa Health Centre. The

targeted rate would pay for $1.3

million of the $5.9 million health

centre. However, the amount of

the annual fixed charge could

lessen over the four-year period

depending on funding for the

health centre.

SPEED LIMIT CHANGES

Public consultation is now open

on planned speed limit decreases

in Sumner. The city council is

proposing to change the speed

limit in Sumner Village from

50km/h to 30km/h and slow

traffic on residential roads to

40km/h. The plan will be open

for consultation until July 8.

New reporter for Bay Harbour News

BAY Harbour News has

a new reporter – Jess

Gibson.

Jess takes over

from Louis Day,

who is staying

with the Star

Media group

(publisher of Bay Harbour

News), and has moved

onto The Star.

• By Louis Day

THE Scarborough Dippers

will plunge into freezing

cold waters every day in

July to raise money for

lighting on the Cave Rock

signal tower.

An article in last week’s

Bay Harbour News reported

on a plan from the Sumner

Redcliffs Historical Society

to reinstall the lighting on

the tower’s mast.

After the article was

brought to the attention of

the Scarborough Dippers

the group decided to donate

the money they make this

year towards the lights.

Scarborough Dipper

Sandra Taylor said this

was more than just about

raising money for the lights,

but also raising awareness

around mental illness.

“Historically, the signal

tower guided boats to safety

and were a shining light in

the darkness welcoming

sailors home. We would like

these lights to be a metaphor

for those struggling in

the darkness that is mental

illness”, she said.

This is the third year the

dippers have raised money

for a local cause.

Last year they raised

$1300 for a public-use

defibrillator for the Sumner

Lifeboat.

Sumner Redcliffs

Historical Society member

Toni Pengelly was delighted

with the support shown

from the dippers.

She thought the focus on

mental health was a nice

touch.

“I’m sure all of us have

suffered or know someone

close to us who is struggling

with some sort of

mental illness,” she said.

Jess, a product of the

Canterbury University

post graduate

journalism school,

has been with Star

Media since just

before Christmas,

reporting on the

Nor’West News.

Said Jess: “I’m really

looking forward to working

on Bay Harbour News

and connecting with the

people and organisations

that live in the area.”

Residents concerned

not enough is being

done to prevent flooding

17 th to 23 rd June 2019

• By Louis Day

MONCKS BAY residents

do not think the city

council is doing enough

to prevent major flooding

happening again.

Last year in February

during the king tides,

Cliff St was flooded with

seawater

which

gushed

through the

drainage

outlet at the

end of the

street.

Ian Wyllie

This

resulted in

trees, plants and hedges

dying.

City council land

drainage manager Keith

Davison said there was no

guarantee seawater would

not flood the street again in

a similar event to last

year’s.

However, he said it

was unlikely that a similar

event would happen again.

“At the time it [February

2018 king tides] was

thought to not be greater

than a one in 10,000 year

event and therefore not

one that we routinely aim

to protect against,” Mr

Davison said.

I am humbled and

grateful to the wonderful

people who came to my

aid after a bike accident

on St Andrews Hill Rd on

Tuesday morning, June 4.

Special mention to the

young mother with a baby,

the gentlemen redirecting

traffic, those active in

keeping me warm and

safe while waiting for the

ambulance.

Sick of late night tenant phone calls and being on call 24/7?

Tenants not paying their rent on time?

Can’t find a tenant for your vacant property?

CONCERNING: Seawater bursting through the

drainage outlet at the end of Cliff St.

He said the city council

would not be changing

its approach and would

continue to check the outlet

four times a year as it has

done for the last 21 years.

The drain is not checked

before predicted storm

events.

Cliff St resident of 20

years Ian Wyllie did not see

this as good enough and

thought it was time for a

change of approach.

“There is nothing to stop

the same thing happening

I am fortunate that

although I have no memory

again whenever the

circumstances align again,”

he said.

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell

Latham found this

concerning.

“Marriner St outlets are

now to be checked prior to

storm events and Cliff St

residents should expect the

same level of service given

their experience of seawater

flooding via the drainage

system,” he said.

Mt Pleasant’s Cheryl Melrose thanks some good Samaritans who came

to her aid on St Andrews Hill Rd

of the incident, medically

I escaped serious injury.

There was nothing

random about your

willing acts of kindness.

And as I have no means

of contacting you directly

but I hope to reach you

all through this form of

media.

Once again my

heartfelt thanks and

appreciation.

Apollo 11 - The Inside Story

by david Whitehouse

The amazing inside story of Apollo 11 - The Right Stuff for

a new generation.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11

moon landing, David Whitehouse brings you the inside

story of the astronauts, NASA engineers and political rivals

that brought an end to the Space Race. Fifty years ago in

July 1969, Apollo 11 became the first manned mission

to land on the moon, and Neil Armstrong the first man

to step onto its surface. US President Nixon called it the

greatest week since creation.

In the most authoritative book ever written about Apollo,

David Whitehouse reveals the true drama behind the mission,

telling the story in the words of those who took part - based

around exclusive interviews with the key players.

Hawking

The Man, The Genius and The Theory of

everything

by Joel Levy

Hawking explores the life and work, explaining the

breakthroughs at the cutting edge of cosmology,

from the Big Bang to black holes, and the ups and downs of

Stephen Hawking’s extraordinary and often turbulent life.

The death of Stephen Hawking in March 2018 brought to a

close one of the most remarkable and inspiring

scientific life stories of all time. This in-depth and

comprehensive biography covers both the well-known aspects of his celebrated life and work,

as well as the personal elements of his life, that make his astounding triumph over disability

and his titanic achievements all the more impressive.

No Man’s Land: the untold story of

automation and QF72

by Kevin Sullivan

A gripping account of how a major air disaster was averted,

by the captain and former Top Gun pilot

Instinctively, I release my pressure on the sidestick. Out of

my subconscious, a survival technique from a previous life

emerges: Neutralise! I’m not in control so I must neutralise

controls. I never imagined I’d use this part of my military

experience in a commercial airliner ... On routine flight

QF72 from Singapore to Perth on 7 October 2008, the

primary flight computers went rogue, causing the plane to

pitch down, nose first, towards the Indian Ocean - twice.

The Airbus A330 carrying 315 passengers and crew was

out of control, with violent negative G forces propelling

anyone and anything untethered through the cabin roof.

In No Man’s Land, the captain of the flight tells the full story for the first time. It’s a

gripping, blow-by-blow account of how, along with his co-pilots, Sullivan relied on his

elite military training to land the gravely malfunctioning plane and narrowly avert what

could have been a horrific air disaster.

RESCUE: Operational crew member Bjorn Stankowitz tests out the new jet ski.

Trusts help Sumner Lifeboat

get $35k in new equipment

THE SUMNER Lifeboat

Institution has $35,000 in

new equipment thanks to

the generosity of two

long-standing benefactors.

The JI Urquhart Trust

granted $20,000 for a jet

ski and trailer and The

Southern Trust has

funded a $15,000

Kubota tractor.

To pay homage

to the JI Urquhart

Trust, which has

helped keep the

institution afloat

for eight years, it

has called the jet ski

Urquhart Trust

Rescue.

Said coxswain Blair

Quane: “This year, when

they heard we were looking

for funding for a jet ski,

they gave us extra to cover

this purchase.”

Blair Quane

“We are very, very

grateful to these trusts.

Both have helped Sumner

Lifeboat to save lives over

the years and their help

with this project will make

a difference for several

years to come,” Mr Quane

said.

“Our old jet ski

named Southern

Trust Rescue was

funded by The

Southern Trust 12

years ago. It has

served us well, but

reached its limits.

Our first priority

was to replace the old

motorbike for towing the

jet ski with a small but

strong, more stable tractor

that would enhance safety

even with the old jet ski.”

Operational crew

member Bjorn Stankowitz

has been testing the tractor

and jet ski, and helping

train other crew members.

“The jet ski a little

beauty,” he said.

“The Kubota has more

power and the driver has

better control. It is easier to

turn so it is easier to get it

out of the garage and that

means we can get the jet

ski onto the water more

quickly.”

The new jet ski is

longer and stronger

than the previous machine

and Mr Stankowitz said

it is more responsive and

is also more stable in the

water.

“It’s also easier for the

second person to hold on

so the helmsperson can

go faster without the crew

getting exhausted,” Mr

Stankowitz said.

Woolstore announcement

• By Louis Day

THE WOOLSTORE in

Lyttelton could be close to

being filled.

“We are very close to

being able to publicly

announce the plans for the

Woolstore, which will be

an exciting development for

Lyttelton,” said Lyttelton

Port Company marketing

manager Simon Munt.

However, Lyttelton

residents are not convinced.

Mr Munt told Bay Harbour

News it was close to making

an announcement in

January.

Said Lyttelton

Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard:

“They have been saying

something has been coming

soon for months or has it

been years?”

“They have always

been close to making an

announcement so I will

believe it when I see it.”

The building has been

empty since it opened in

October. Discussions with

the same developer have

been ongoing since last

year.

Mr Munt admitted

discussions were taking a

bit longer than expected.

“It is important to get

these agreements right, so

that we can ensure that the

development is an enduring

one that delivers the best

possible outcome for the

future of Te Ana.”

New zones to inspire

AS THE WAY we live changes,

so too does The Star Home and

Living Show – it is keeping up

to date with latest design and

technology.

Events manager Lisa Lynch

said she is excited about two

new zones, which have been created

for this year’s event to inspire

and hopefully get people motivated

about the way they

live.

“The Innovative Living Zone

switches thinking – not just

planning your space, but planning

how you wish to feel in your

space,” she said.

“It will showcase the latest in

modern, urban, cosmopolitan home

and landscape designs to transform

your space – inside and out.”

This zone will include an

interactive, innovative living

design area, where you can sit

and have a coffee and be

inspired by new and creative

ideas for your home, by talking to

the specialists about your dreams.

The Eco Zone will showcase

CONCEPTS: The

Innovative Living

Zone, which will

feature at The

Battle for Heathcote

city council seat

starts to heat up

•From page 1

Dr Latham thought it was

time for a change.

“Council in many cases

have been too slow to sweat

the small stuff for their

ratepayers,” he said.

“It is fine to have a vision

for stadiums, cycleways

and other million dollar

projects. However, residents

want their basic needs met

first. These needs include

pothole-free footpaths,

operational drainage systems,

a functional water supply,

better roads and wellmaintained

parks to name

but a few.”

He faces strong

competition from Cr

Templeton who beat

incumbent Paul Lonsdale in

2016 by 1585 votes to claim

the Heathcote seat.

Mr Lonsdale was the only

city councillor standing for

re-election not to retain his

position.

Cr Templeton, who is a

member of the Green Party,

will run as an independent

politics does not belong in

local government.

She is confident ahead of

the elections and welcomes

Dr Latham’s challenge.

“I think that I have been

accessible, approachable and

accountable and I think the

community really appreciates

that,” she said.

The former high school

“I have a lot of things that

I want to achieve at council

future city, and their future

planet, I know that the task is

just too important to not put

my hand up.”

Creativity using hands and loom

SUMNER’S SARAH Kerr is a

creative at heart.

The 25-year-old has cerebral

palsy, which affects body movement

and co-ordination – but

her condition doesn‘t hold

her back at Handmade Studio

Charitable Trust.

Handmade Studio is a craft

co-operative shop where people

with disabilities can weave,

loom, stuff and sew to create a

variety of items – and 90 per

cent of the money from each

sale goes back to the person who

made it.

Sarah has been working at

Handmade Studio since 2015,

and says she loves it because it

doesn’t matter that she has a

disability.

“It doesn’t matter that my legs

don’t work, because it’s all hand

stuff,” she said.

“It’s varied and interesting,

and you look at something and

go: ‘Wow, I made that’.”

Sarah works four-and-a-half

days a week and spends a lot of

her time turning wool into fabric

using a loom.

“It’s mostly hand stuff,

and any leg movements are

big movements, so I can do

that.”

“I can’t do sewing on the

machines, and if I do hand-sew

it has to be rough stuff. But I

HANDS ON: Sarah Kerr is not letting cerebral palsy kerb her creativity.

can tack – you can be the worst

sewer in the world and still

make it work.”

And Sarah says it’s more than

just work – she met her best

friend at Handmade Studio.

Supervisor Toni Parker-

Adams said there is often up to

12 people working in the

studio each day, and the

friendships that have formed

are just as important as the

work itself.

“They feel safe here, and they

have a good group of friends.

Some of them have been coming

for 20-odd years. It’s sort of like

a coffee group on a bigger scale,”

she said.

Handmade Studio Charitable

Trust is supported by Rata

Foundation, which recently

approved a grant of $10,000

towards operating costs.

Signal box

repair

being priced

• By Louis Day

THE RETAINING wall

protecting the historic railway

signal box in Lyttelton will be

rebuilt.

The city council is currently

pricing the project.

City council heritage programme

manager Richie Moyle

expected the pricing of the rebuild

to be completed by the end of this

month.

The rebuild of the wall has been

on hold due to the vessel Kia Ora

impeding access. The 121-yearold

yacht had been sitting on the

corner of Norwich Quay and

Donald St for more than 20 years.

Lyttelton Port Company disposed

of the vessel in May due to it deteriorating

beyond repair.

In 1994 the signal box was

relocated from the Lyttelton rail

tunnel to its present site on Gladstone

Quay. It was constructed to

accommodate new signals that

were bought into operation on

July 29, 1906.

It ensured that trains ran safely,

over the correct route and to a

proper timetable.

By 1986, Lyttelton port’s signal

box was one of just 11 still in

use and was officially closed on

September 15, 1991.

Diamond Harbour dairy

raises $13k for fire brigade

• By Jess Gibson

TWO STORE owners have been

key drivers in fundraising more

than $13,000 for the Diamond

Harbour Volunteer Fire

Brigade’s new support vehicle.

The brigade has been slowly

raising the $50,000 needed for

the vehicle for almost four years.

But with help from Diamond

Harbour On The Spot store

owners James Grant and Laura

Palmer, the brigade has almost

doubled the amount it has raised

to date and is now almost at

$30,000.

On the Spot organised a

sell-out Big Quiz night at the

community hall on Saturday.

Mr Palmer said the decision

to support the brigade was a “nobrainer.”

“We see the amount of work

that these men and women

put in on top of their normal

everyday jobs. If we were going

to support anyone major in the

community it was them.”

The brigade has struggled in

the past to effectively deal with

calls out to rural areas, farms,

forestry areas and areas which

only have tracks for four-wheeldrive

vehicles.

Fire chief Bob Palmer said

ever since On the Spot stepped

in to help with the fundraising,

the “profile of the brigade has

blossomed in the community.”

“It’s fantastic. This quiz has

raised our profile enormously,

which has resulted in people

contacting us and asking how to

donate towards the vehicle,” he

said.

Harbour Volunteer Fire

Brigade, phone Bob Palmer

Dumbstruck by the Wiggles

WOW, WHAT a week.

I never thought I would have

got so excited to see a children’s

show, but I’m re-living my

childhood vicariously through my

daughter.

Laura and I took Vittoria to

the Wiggles last week and it was

amazing. I kind of feel like the

first parent to see Shrek when

I say there was definitely some

jokes in there for the adults too,

which is why I liked it so much.

It’s not just because I like the

songs and stuff.

It was a big surprise for

Vittoria, not that it was hard to

keep it from her, and it totally

blew her little Wiggle-loving

mind. Honestly, it was watching

her love it which really made it

for me.

I so wish I had managed to

get it on film, but when they

came out on stage her wee mouth

fell open so wide you could’ve

driven the big red car right on in

there.

The running theory for me

and Laura is that Vittoria was

struggling to comprehend

that her favourite colourful

Australians were actually real.

Dancing along with her was a

blast, she knows a bunch of the

actions and at home she even

gets excited if you say the word

“Wiggles” while standing near the

TV.

Only thing was, she

OVERWHELMED: Vittoria

doing hand motions with the

Wiggles.

VITTORIA

& Matt

occasionally just clammed up and

sat there dumbstruck. She was

clearly a little overwhelmed by the

whole thing.

To be fair, her Wiggles

experience had exploded from

watching them on Netflix to

dancing along in a room chock

a-block full of other hyperactive

Wiggles fans while the real deal

Wiggles sang on stage.

By the end of the show she had

her head around it.

I can’t wait for them to do

another show here, it’ll be

interesting to see how Vittoria

would go on the second round.

To cap the week off, Vittoria

and I have moved out to North

Canterbury for a few days to look

after my mum and step-dad’s

place in Waikuku while they’re

away on holiday.

It’s just us two and two small

dogs hanging out in my home

town/village. It’s going to be great

and likely a challenge.

I’ve never really been a

stay-at-home dad alone, with

zero back-up at any point during

the day.

So look forward to an update

on how that goes.

Air, Sea & Land

Gallery and Framing

Simply put the clues in the name…

Air, Land & Sea is a unique Lyttelton

gallery where the focus is on

aviation, automotive, maritime and

rail themes. The fascinating display

includes die cast model cars, artwork

depicting seafaring vessels and cars,

trains, books, and Christchurch’s

largest range of barometers by German

brand Fischer, still made in the Black

Forest area of Germany. So, if you’re

looking for that for that certain gift for

your man…or lady, there are plenty of

unusual items to choose from here…

plus they also offer a professional

picture framing service.

Lyttelton Picture Framing in

London Street offers high-quality

picture framing at realistic prices.

Malcolm Carne has owned and

operated the business for 20 years

and has the qualification to undertake

all types of framing – he is a Guild

Commended Framer (GCF), which is

a British qualification in conservation

framing.

“Conservation framing is about

making sure the artwork is preserved

inside the frame, including fitting UV

glass to prevent sunlight damaging

it,” Malcolm says.

He stocks an extensive selection

of mouldings to suit all types of

artwork whether prints or originals,

ranging from beautiful ornate styles

to the modern Scandinavian style of

frame.

To complement the artwork and

the frame, Malcolm has mounts in

a wide range of colours, and he is

happy to advise customers on the

right frame and mount to set off the

artwork.

That artwork may not necessarily

be a two-dimensional piece –

Malcolm also frames memorabilia

such as medals or other precious

objects a customer may want to

display on the wall.

He carries out all the framing

on the premises, with most jobs

completed within two weeks, as long

as the moulding is available from the

manufacturer, he says.

Air, Sea & Land is located at 32

London Street, Lyttelton and is

open Monday to Friday from 9am-

5pm and Saturday from 9am-1pm.

Bays must win to make SFL

• By Gordon Findlater

THE TASK is simple for

Ferrymead Bays in their pursuit

Southern Football League

spot – win against Cashmere

Technical on Saturday and

they’re in.

Bays go into Saturday’s final

round of the Mainland Premier

League in fifth spot on the

table. The top five teams in the

MPL will gain spots in the SFL.

However, if Bays fail to win

a tough match against Tech,

both Coastal Spirit and Selwyn

United could leap-frog them.

Coastal and Selwyn are just one

point behind Bays.

“We know what we need to

do and it gives us a bit of focus

going into the week,” said Bays

co-coach Neil Murphy.

Bays will be underdogs in the

match against Tech.

Tech have already wrapped

up the MPL title. However, Bays

will take confidence from being

the only team to defeat them in

the league this season, which

they did 2-1 in the opening

round.

“They’ll not want to have that

repeated and obviously we’ll use

that as confidence . . . we hope

to strengthen the side this week

from previous weeks – we’ve

had a few players away,” he said.

Bays also want to put a 1-11

thrashing at the hands of

Nelson Suburbs behind them.

A somewhat depleted side travelled

to Nelson at the weekend

for their third round Chatham

Cup match.

Suburbs scored three early

goals before Jesse Ruwhui made

it 1-3. However, the match

quickly got away from Bays

before the end of the first half.

Just months before the first

round of the MPL, Bays were

struck an almighty blow with

the departure of their former

coach Danny Halligan to

Christchurch United. His departure

was followed by half of

Bays’ first team, many of whom

followed Halligan to cash-rich

Christchurch.

Given the circumstances,

qualifying for the SFL would be

deemed a success for Bays.

“At the start of the season, if

you’d have said it would come

down to the last game where we

have a chance of qualifying, I’d

have taken it,” said Murphy.

Bay’s match against Cashmere

on Saturday kicks off

at 2.45pm at Garrick Park,

Woolston.

SUMNER GOT their bottom six

premier rugby campaign off to a

winning start with an 8-3 victory

over Belfast in a mud bath at St

Leonards Square.

Dominance at scrum time and

forcing the opposition

to make errors in their

own half were the keys

to Sumner’s control

throughout what was an

otherwise uninteresting

match due to terrible

conditions.

Sumner opened the

scoring midway through

the first half through

fullback Charles Oswald.

Sumner were awarded a penalty

advantage, which gave them a

SUMNER PROP Samuela

Tawake will play on the national

stage after being snapped up by

Manawatu for the upcoming

Mitre 10 Cup season.

The 120kg tighthead was

offered a two-year deal with

Manawatu last week, and will

relocate to Palmerston North

next month. The 22-year-old

has been with Sumner for four

years and made his Mitre 10

Cup debut for Canterbury off

the bench last year. He hopes the

move to Manawatu will present

an opportunity to become a

regular player in the competition

and at a higher level.

“It’s always been the goal

to play Mitre 10 and then go

further. If I want to do that I

need to be playing Mitre 10

consistently,” said Tawake.

Tawake relocated to

Christchurch in 2015 after

receiving a rugby scholarship

at Christ’s College. He then

returned to Fiji for a short

period before returning to

Christchurch and plying his

trade with Sumner. He says the

club has played a major role in

his development as a player.

to Oswald, who then dummy

passed an inside flick and scored

in the corner, taking out the

corner flag in the process.

Coach Martin Dodgson

pointed out the performance of

Oswald as a key to restricting

Belfast to just three points.

“He had some huge kicks

to keep them down in one

corner and our dominance

at the set piece made

it hard for them to go

anywhere,” said Dodgson.

Sumner were without

regular halfback Hayden

O’Donnell due to injury.

However, it created the

perfect opportunity for

recently arrived Englishman

James Elliot to make his premier

debut.

“They’ve been with me

They’ve been really key for

me in terms of giving me

hope. Sumner has been really

important in terms of getting me

to where I am now,” he said.

Tawake also said a shift in his

approach to the game has helped

him. “The mental approach for

me is to dominate and be the big

man wherever it is on the field,”

said Tawake.

Hemisphere halfback to come

in and make his debut, it’s on a

down and when to kick,” said

Dodgson.

Wesley Mauafu also returned

from Auckland to make his first

appearance of the season by

starting on the wing.

There was also a win for

Sumner’s division two side

against Belfast 12-10.

Meanwhile, the Sharks went

Thank you for

helping your

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

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.

CX-9 integral part of pamper package

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

THE OFFER of a pamper

package at Hanmer Springs was

too good to turn down – hot

pools, spa, massage and an

overnight stay all included.

The car my wife and I drove

to the township in was a Mazda

CX-9 and it fitted the occasion, it

is quiet, refined and superbly comfortable

on the undulating North

Canterbury roads.

The seven-seat CX-9 is not new,

the latest generation sports utility

vehicle landed in New Zealand in

2016; however, it has had a bit of

a refresh and a high grade variant

has been added to the line-up.

There are now three models,

rounding out with what Mazda

label Takami.

Takami is something you are

going to hear a lot more about

from Mazda, it adds just that little

bit of extra sophistication, sitting

over and above Limited variants

and, as in the CX-9’s case, add

several features such as nappa

leather trim, rosewood panels and

aluminium trim items.

These sit on top of what would

ordinarily be a well-specced vehicle

in the first instance.

Those familiar with the CX-9

pre-2016 will relate to the feisty

V6 engine which characterised

the line-up. That has long gone,

today’s CX-9 has a turbocharged

2.5-litre four-cylinder engine.

If the thought of a turbocharger

has you a little perplexed, you

need not be concerned. The turbocharger

is low boost, and the

engine, and its management protocols,

are structured so that the

engine works consistently in the

area of low revs. Sure, it will meet

the 6000rpm red-line with little

provocation; however, there is a

strong, flat torque curve which

meets its maximum at 2000rpm

(420Nm). Add in 170kW at just

5000rpm, the realisation is that

the engine is going to work tirelessly

at low speed.

Power is transferred through a

traditional six-speed automatic

transmission. This is another area

Mazda does really well, the ratios

and the shift management system

work well with the low revving

nature of the engine, the gaps between

gears are filled through the

turbo boost, while acceleration is

clean and smooth.

The CX-9 is no slouch, even

without working hard it will still

accelerate to 100km/h in 8.8sec,

and will make a highway overtake

in 4.7sec. On our journey north

I made use of several overtaking

opportunities and always enjoyed

that solid mid-range punch that

MAZDA CX-9 TAKAMI: High grade trim and specification over and

above Limited.

you get from a big four-potter and

the boost from a turbocharger.

Interestingly, the CX-9 gets a

driver-selectable sport mode, but

even without the heightened engine

urgency it is still responsive.

I didn’t use sport mode much,

but far preferred to let the engine

operate at its area of greatest efficiency.

The benefit of the engine’s low

revving nature is also that of fuel

economy. It’s no surprise the

CX-9 is thrifty, Mazda’s SkyActive

programme leans towards

efficiency, and it claims an 8.8-litre

per 100km (32mpg) combined

cycle average, which fits well with

the 9.2l/100km (31mpg) readout

during our journey. At 100km/h

the engine is turning over at just

2000rpm in sixth gear, offering a

7.8l/100 (36mpg) instantaneous

figure.

Considering the CX-9 weighs

in rather tubby at just on twotonne,

these figures are impressive

and are a credit to the Mazda

engineers who, for a long time

now, have been plugging away

at driveline efficiency. All CX-9

models are now four-wheel-drive,

which makes it’s economy even

more remarkable.

The 4WD set-up will take you

off-the-beaten track without

being fully classified as an offroader.

However, with a ground

clearance figure of 220mm, it

does have useful off-the-seal

capability.

Personally, I see the all-drive

function as a medium to glean

grip on all surfaces, the CX-9

has an on-road feel which is

quite reassuring, it feels tightly

connected to the road surface,

and even in the wet there is surety

through the steering which must

be considered a safety feature.

On that subject, the CX-9

easily qualifies for a five-star

• Price – Mazda CX-9

Takami, $67,895

• Dimensions – Length,

height, 1747mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 170kW, 420Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.8l/100km

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

My wife never travels light, but

her suitcase was no match for

the cavernous cargo area. With

the rear seats folded flat that area

measures up to 810-litres; if you

are seven-up then that area is

compromised to 230-litres, but

that matters little, the CX-9 is

very much a competitive battler

in the large SUV category.

As much as I liked the detailing

in the Takami grade, I’d be an

entry-level buyer, at $59,695

against $67,895 you are getting a

lot of value for money. However,

I fully appreciate that SUV buyers

like all the bells and whistles, and

that’s what you get with CX-9

Takami, it is a luxury car at an

affordable price. For the record,

the non-Takami Limited grade

comes in at $65,295.

I have a certain affinity with

Mazda, there’s one in the Kiddie

garage, I like the way the product

is quality built and the technology

constantly surprises me.

“Thank you! For everything.

There are no words.”

REAL ESTATE

Living the dream…

56 Purau Port Levy Rd, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $799,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car garage | Listing Number: 8885

A charming, delightful 1950’s bungalow set

on nearly 1 acre of flat and very productive

land. North facing, sheltered, sunny and

private, this charming home is in excellent

order throughout having been loved and

carefully maintained over the years.

The top level of the house comprises 2

living areas, a large modern farmhouse style

kitchen with plenty of storage, a massive

master bedroom with adjoining bathroom

and a single bedroom currently used as an

office.

The master bedroom opens onto a covered

North facing verandah with a cosy coveredin

area with a day bed, the perfect place to

enjoy the afternoon sun, peace and birdlife

and to while away a few hours. Downstairs,

(externally accessed) are 2 double bedrooms,

bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area so

semi self-contained, perfect for extended

family or teenagers.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase in

the beautiful picturesque Purau Valley and to

obtain a small manageable holding like this is

really one of a kind.

The land is a mixture of lawns, gardens

and the most established and productive

orchard I have ever seen, with many many

fruit trees established vege beds and native

plantings. There is excellent access, a large

double garage, greenhouse and other useful

sheds and most importantly excellent water

supplies.

My vendors are retiring very reluctantly

and have loved every minute of the 10 years

they have spent here.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a highly

desirable destination as it is so useable being

close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by

such a safe swimming beach are defying all

the odds and selling fast generally as they

come up very seldom. Excellent swimming,

boating, walking and stunning sunsets on

the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton

via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a

fun filled place to visit.

Properties here make an excellent

investment and Purau Bay and valley is a

truly magical place to live.
