A JACK RUSSELL cross which

station has been immortalised in

bronze. Skippy used to live next

door to the station.

She would turn up every day,

just before 1pm, as the timeball

was being raised.

Skippy would hear the

mechanism clanking, then

Plan does

not help

Akaroa

dolphin

population

• By Jess Gibson

A MARINE animal expert and

the Black Cat Cruises boss are

concerned a proposal to protect

hector’s dolphins across New

Zealand leaves the Akaroa

population at risk.

The Government’s 40-page

threat management plan includes

protection measures for the dolphins,

which are classified as nationally

vulnerable

with an estimated

population of

15,700.

Proposed

commercial and

recreational set

netting and trawling

restrictions

Liz Slooten

run north from Banks Peninsula

to Kaikoura, south to Timaru,

and offshore up to 20 nautical

miles. But the additional protection

does not include an area of

sea around the south-eastern side

of Banks Peninsula. Instead, the

only option is to maintain the

current restriction of four nautical

miles offshore in that stretch.

Otago University zoology

professor Liz Slooten said she has

been scratching her head over the

gap in the proposal.

THERE WILL no doubt be a lot of people

happy to see Skippy back at the timeball

station (see page 1).

The jack russell cross lived next door to the

station and would head there each day until

she went to the great dog kennel in the sky in 2009.

She would turn up every day, just before 1pm, as the timeball

was being raised. Skippy would hear the mechanism clanking,

then squeeze under the fence, run through the garden and bark.

Said former timeball station manager Jan Titus. “Skippy was

such a feature that people on our tours would watch the drop then

race across on the viewing platform to spot Skippy as she trotted

home.”

Great to see her back.

Peninsula speed limits could drop

• By Jess Gibson

ROADS ON Banks Peninsula

may have speeds reduced by up

to 80km/h.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board has recommended

the city council approve more

than 40 different speed limit

reductions around the Akaroa

Harbour, bays, and Little River

areas.

Reductions

were recommended

on

roads within

higher risk

travel routes,

roads near

small settlements,

places

where pedestrians

are likely to be present as

well as unsealed roads.

One recommendation was

to change the speed limit on

Childrens Bay Rd from 100km/h

to 20km/h as it is highly used

by vehicles and pedestrians, unsealed

and has a blind corner.

Wainui Main Rd is a high-risk,

rural route and has been ranked

seventh out of 32 priority routes

within the city council area.

If approved, the entire length

of Wainui Main Rd will be

reduced from 100km/h and

70km/h to 60km/h.

Community board member

Janis Haley said the changes

would not affect a lot of people.

“I think it’s what the local

residents expect. I don’t think

the limits will cause too much of

a problem,” she said.

“For a lot of the roads, it’s the

speed that you can only really do

anyway. It’s just a reality check

for what is feasible.”

made during a public consultation

REDUCTIONS:

If approved by

the city council,

speed limits

will be reduced

on a number of

roads around

the Akaroa

areas. ​

The consultation was split into

areas and the analysis was done

based on the comments in each

area.

Feedback resulted in amendments

being made to the report.

The city council’s decision date

is yet to be finalised but a city

council spokesperson said it is

likely to be at its next meeting on

The reductions align with the

Planting day

to help

restore native

vegetation

UP TO 800 trees will be

planted at Oashore Farm,

across the drainage ditch from

Birdlings Flat, on Saturday

from 10am.

The 500ha property is

owned by a United States

conservationist who has

bought it in order to protect the

existing native vegetation on

the property and to encourage

more to grow on the land.

The end of the property

closest to Birdlings Flat does

not have a good source of

native plants to re-seed the

area, so the community is

growing a small forest to give

nature what it needs to grow on

the rest of the land.

This will be the fourth year

of planting with Birdlings Flat

residents.

The previous land

manager, Kate Whyte, decided

to include the community

to give them a meaningful

connection with the land and

so they could watch their trees

grow from their side of the

lake.

Concerns over plan to protect dolphins

•From page 1

Said Prof Slooten: “It took

the Otago University marine

mammal research team two days

to make sense of these options

and why they’ve put protection

in those particular areas. They

don’t really spell it out in the

document. What they seem to

have done is gone to the areas

where the most dolphins are

being caught

right now

and chosen to

protect them

and not the

areas where

not many

dolphins are

being caught.

“The

Paul Milligan

problem with

that is, if you

close the areas

to the north and restrict fishing

to the south, people are going to

shift into that gap. We will have

shifted the problem around the

map rather than solved it.”

Black Cat Cruises chief

executive Paul Milligan said he is

disappointed the document has

“left out an area where people

know there are dolphins.”

A Fisheries New Zealand

spokesperson said there is

unlikely to be additional

displaced recreational set netting

given the existing closures in

IN DANGER: The proposed expansion of set netting and

trawling retrictions does not include an area around Banks

Peninsula which is home to hector’s dolphins.

place. However, they did not

comment on the commercial

activities.

“The proposals are looking

to extend the current closures

further offshore in areas within

Pegasus Bay and the Canterbury

Bight. They are based on the best

scientific evidence available of

the risks to hector’s and maui

dolphins, which draws on a

range of new information,” the

spokesperson said.

The information includes

results from aerial surveys

of dolphin distribution and

abundance, revised population

and sub-population estimates,

new dolphin sighting information

from the public and fisheries

observers, updated captures

from fisheries observers

and information from the

Department of Conservation’s

necropsy programme

Last month, Black Cat Cruises

commissioned a study by Market

Economics to determine the value

of hector’s dolphins. It found

dolphin-related eco-tourism

brings almost $25 million into the

New Zealand economy each year,

with an additional $3 million to

$6 million in associated tourism

activities. It also found hector’s

dolphins sustain up to 476 jobs in

the national economy.

Hector’s dolphin numbers are

estimated to have decreased by

about 74 per cent over the past 30

years.

The National Institute of Water

and Atmospheric Research

estimates up to 100-150 hector’s

and maui dolphins are drowned

in set nets every year.

“If you start restricting fishing

in areas nearby, it’s going to direct

any fishing activity to where

they are allowed. If anything, it’s

got the potential to increase the

fishing activity in that area and

therefore increase the likelihood

that a dolphin is caught,” Mr

Milligan said.

“Market Economics’ study has

some weight behind it so we will

be putting in a submission based

around that.”

Public consultation on the plan

closes on August 4.

95 Years of Real Estate comes home to the Bays

Pip Sutton has spent her life by the ocean and

the bays around Canterbury. Her family roots

have an extensive history throughout Sumner

and the Lyttleton Harbour. Sutton Reserve and

Sutton Quay have been named after her great

grandfather.

Childhood memories along the shorelines,

especially Sumner, where days filled with chasing

sea gulls, playing in the waves, strapping her

boogie board to her back and trekking over the hill

to Taylors Mistake bring a smile to her face.

Her family heritage lies in four generations of

well-known Christchurch Real Estate Agents,

whose love for the area is effervescent. Since

1924, her family has been an integral part of the

real estate landscape throughout the bays and the

larger Christchurch area.

Now Pip, the fourth generation of her family’s

real estate legacy, has more than 14 years of

her own experience seriously benefiting her

clients. She learned under the best, Her father

and grandfather taught her the intricacies and

complexities of real estate well. Ensuring she

learnt on the toughest of tasks. Pip can hold her

head with pride thinking about all the families she

and her late ancestors have supported with their

goals of buying and/or selling property.

“The Bays & the ocean are a part of me. I love

them. I respect them and I honour them, so this is

a natural way for me to work with my clients who

are looking for their next real estate transaction.

Whether they are selling a home. Looking for a

beach house or an investment property.

I work right throughout Christchurch; but my

reputation for knowing the intricacies & unique

lifestyle opportunities the bays offer and friendly

and approachable selling style sees Clients come

from far and wide. I am happy and appreciate the

chance to help and support them in their quest.”

Pip says.

Pip is a Residential Sales and Development

available to help you achieve your real estate goals.

“Christchurch has just come off its biggest boom

in history after the quakes and is now returning

to a more normal market. Confidence in the area

has returned and people are appreciating all the

lifestyle has to offer.”

“The city rebuild is starting to take shape which is

seeing the inner city life and entertainment come

alive again. The stigma associated with the bays

and their proximity to the epicentre and damage

caused by the earthquakes is waning. People want

to live here. The benefits associated with the

recovery are seeing this much loved and sought

after area once again positioned as a dream haven

and hugely desirable lifestyle option.”

“One thing a family who has survived 95 years

straight selling property in the bays and the

is, that no matter what the conditions, properties

keep selling, people keep moving. Each market

has its pros and cons, benefits and nags. The

most important thing is that the absolute best

looking to buy walks through the door and that

that person is catered for in the best possible way

ensuring they feel more confident and excited

about purchasing your home than any other in the

marketplace.”

Clock tower repairs to start next month

WORK TO repair and restore the

damaged heritage clock towers in

New Brighton and Scarborough

will begin next month.

The city council has given

heritage-experienced contractors

Cook Brothers Construction

Canterbury the job of leading

the restoration work on the two

landmark clock towers.

The Scarborough clock tower

dates back to the 1930s.

It is expected the

restoration work

will take about six

months.

Said head of

parks Andrew

Andrew

Rutledge

Rutledge: “Cook

Brothers have a

great track record of

heritage repairs and

we’re confident they will do a fantastic

job in returning these clock

towers to their former glory.’’

The clock towers have been

fenced off since early last year

while extensive structural investigations

have been done to determine

the extent of the repairs

required.

That investigative work showed

the earthquakes and the years

of exposure to the harsh seaside

environment have left them in a

poor condition.

“Both clock towers suffered

structural damage in the

earthquakes and have historical

damage that needs repairing.

The investigative work we did revealed

there was chlorides in the

concrete which has caused the

underlying reinforcing steel to

corrode in places,’’ Mr Rutledge

said.

“There is also evidence in both

towers of poor quality concrete

cover to the steel – for example,

at the very top of the Scarborough

clock tower you can see

where some of the reinforcing

has been exposed.’’

Mr Rutledge said of the two

clock towers, New Brighton

needed the most repairs. It has

two internal floors that need

replacing because they have significant

cracks in them.

The clock faces on both towers

also need to have work done on

them.

“The clock faces and mechanisms

from both clock towers

have already been removed so

they can be restored. Because

of the heritage significance of

the clocks, we want to retain as

much of the original material as

possible.

“However, the cast iron features

on the clock faces have become

heavily corroded in places

and some parts of them will need

to be cut out and new sections

recast,’’ Mr Rutledge said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Flood risk in

Heathcote

alleviated

THE RISK of properties

in Heathcote flooding has

decreased due to work

undertaken in Wigram.

The city council has

undertaken flood protection

work to increase the capacity of

the Wigram East storage basin,

which sits in the Canterbury

Agricultural Park.

Land drainage manager

Keith Davison said the work

means there will be less risk

of properties along the upper

reaches of the Heathcote

flooding.

“We have lowered a large area

of the park for flood storage and

created four hectares of wetland.

“In a one-in-100-year storm

event the basin can now store

around 590 million litres

of water – the equivalent of

more than 236 Olympic-sized

swimming pools,” Mr Davison

said.

The city council fast-tracked

the $7.25 million project to

extend the Wigram East storage

basin to provide critical flood

mitigation, and scheduled it

at the same time as work on

neighbouring Ngā Puna Wai

Sports Hub.

Community awards presented to

FIVE GOOD Samaritans have

been acknowledged for their

services within the Bay Harbour

News area.

Nominees were selected

by Volunteering Canterbury

to receive the outstanding

voluntary contribution to the

community award, presented by

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson at the

civic offices on June 17.

Twelve groups and 28

individual awards were

presented in front of about 200

people who gathered to support

the nominees.

Alan Christie, City to

Sumner Community Patrol

Sumner resident Alan

Christie, 74, does not believe

that retirement means sitting at

home.

Instead, he puts his free time

to good use by helping out at

the City to Sumner Community

Patrol.

For the past 15 years, Mr

Christie has been involved

with patrol which covers the

area from Linwood through to

Diamond Harbour, building

relationships with groups in the

wider community and making

exceptional contributions

‘behind the scenes.’

Mr Christie is a committee

member and heads out on patrol

every two weeks to help clean

up the streets and report graffiti

to the city council. He will also

help out emergency services if

they need help with accidents or

monitoring areas for crime.

For the last four years, he has

helped to train police college

applicants before they head off

to study for 16 weeks in Porirua,

Wellington.

“Quite a few police applicants

join us to learn a bit more about

what goes on,” he said.

Mr Christie is no stranger to

helping others.

Before joining the patrol, Mr

Christie was involved with the

STOP trust, which helps males

who have been sexually abused.

He was a member for seven

years, five of which he served as

chairman.

Looking on, Mr Christie plans

to keep helping out at the patrol

until he knows its “time to go.”

Chance for

children

to explore

hidden paths

• By Jess Gibson

CHILDREN WILL get the

opportunity to explore hidden

pathways in Lyttelton when the

school holidays start on July 5.

The Lyttelton Information

Centre has created two

free walks in the area – one

for children aged seven and

under and the other for over

sevens.

Maps will be available at the

information centre on Oxford St

from July 5.

The hour-long walks are

different and have detailed

directions, as well as activities

and information on the harbour.

To learn more about the

walks, phone Ruth Targus on

021 259 3086 or email office@

Matariki Hunga Nui

A trio of artists come together to visually explore Matariki.

Robin Slow and Brian Flintoff have artistically collaborated

for many years. Joining them for the first time is Amber

Smith whose artwork has been displayed for some time

at Little River Gallery but never before in exhibition there.

Amber’s medium is both ceramic and printmaking, Robin

works in acrylic on canvas and Brian carves whalebone

and native timbers. All three artists live and work in the

Tasman and Nelson area.

Matariki Hunga Nui

Brian Flintoff

Matariki of many people.

Matariki was always a time to remember those who have

become whetu (stars), to make connections between the

rangi (sky) and the whenua (land), to celebrate and rejoice.

There are numerous stories of ‘Matariki’ giving

perspectives and conveying differing versions that are

part of a narrative about a group of stars seen above the

horizon. The narratives located in these works relate to the

land and sky, above and below us, on to the place we are

located. We can stop and look upward and see the stories

in action, moving from one group of whetu to another each

bearing its own relationship to the whole cosmology.

The Accusation -

Somebody is Lying

by Wendy James

After eighteen-year-old Ellie Canning is found shivering

and barely conscious on a country road, her bizarre story

of kidnap and escape enthrals the nation. Who would do

such a thing? And why?

Local drama teacher Suzannah Wells, once a minor celebrity,

is new to town. Suddenly she’s in the spotlight again, accused of being

the monster who drugged and bound a teenager in her basement. As

stories about her past emerge, even those closest to her begin to doubt

her innocence.

And Ellie? The media can’t get enough of her. She’s a girl-power icon, a

social-media star. But is she telling the truth?

A powerful exploration of the fragility of trust and the loss of innocence,

from the author of The Golden Child and The Mistake.

The Daughter’s Tale

by Armando Lucas Correa

Based on the true story of the Nazi massacre of a French village in 1944, an

unforgettable tale of love and redemption from the bestselling author of The

German Girl.

New York City, 2015: Elise Duval, eighty years old, receives a phone call

from a woman recently arrived from Cuba bearing messages from a time and

country that she’s long forgotten. A French Catholic who arrived in New York

after World War II, Elise and her world are forever changed when the woman

arrives with letters written to Elise from her mother in Germany during the war,

unravelling more than seven decades of secrets.

Berlin, 1939: Bookstore owner and recent widow Amanda Sternberg is fleeing

Nazi Germany with her two young daughters, heading towards unoccupied

France. She arrives in Haute-Vienne with only one of her girls. Their freedom is

short-lived and soon they are taken to a labour camp.

Inspired by one of the most shocking atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis

during World War II, the 1944 massacre of all the inhabitants of the village of

Oradour-Sur-Glane in the south of France, The Daughter’s Tale is a beautifully

crafted family saga of love, survival and hope against all odds.

Bronze statue immortalises timeball station’s famous K9

•From page 1

Skippy became a prominent

figure in advertising campaigns

and an integral part of the

timeball experience.

“Skippy was such a feature

that people on our tours would

watch the drop then race across

on the viewing platform to spot

Skippy as she trotted home,” said

former timeball station manager

Jan Titus. She said Skippy started

watching over the tower in 2003

and continued to do so until she

died in 2009.

Skippy’s statue now watches

over the station from the same

spot she used to bark at the

timeball. The station was built in

the 1870s to help sailors establish

their longitude. Located on the

Lyttelton hillside overlooking

the port and harbour, it is one of

only five working timeballs in the

world. It was badly damaged in

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

and collapsed after another

significant shake in June 2011.

The historic building reopened

in November following a $3

million rebuild, which took more

than a year to complete.

The building was vandalised

only three months after being

reopened. Ms Titus felt the

timeball would be in safe hands

for years to come with Skippy

watching over it.

The statue was created by

Waikari sculptor Sam Mahon.

Keeping bubs out

of the dog biscuits

IT’S BEEN more than

a week of looking after

bubs on my own while

house-sitting for my mum

and step-dad at Waikuku

Beach.

Hanging out in my

hometown has been great

– picnics in the forest,

walks along the beach with

the dogs, and spending

hours on the playground.

We’ve managed to avoid

any major catastrophes.

The only thing that has

given me any serious

concern is Vittoria’s new

found love of dog biscuits.

Totally obsessed;

favourite snack territory.

And I really do mean she

loves them. If I grab them

off her or fish one out of

her mouth, it elicits some

serious screaming.

I’ve told friends who

have older kids and they’re

all “oh, that’s normal”. But

how normal is it really to

grab a handful of food,

designed for a canine,

and run into the corner to

munch on it?

She’s gotten a little wise

to my dislike of her new

snaking habits and lures

me into a false sense

of security by sweetly

grabbing some and feeding

it to the dogs Petal and Po.

It’s really cute, she giggles

and the dogs love it too.

My heart melts and I

look away for two seconds.

When I turn back, she’s

bolting into a hiding spot

with some for herself.

Oh well, by the time

you’re reading this, we’ll

likely be home, so she

won’t be eating them for

much longer.

I think I’ve managed

pretty well running

completely solo, but I did

experience my first real

‘I’m over this’ kind of day

on Monday.

VITTORIA

& Matt

SCOOBY SNACKS: Vittoria has become quite

proficient at using the dog lead – as long as Petal

and Po don’t move too far or too fast.

After a big session at

the playground, minding

Vittoria and both dogs, I

was sure she’d have a nap.

However, outside of car

rides, Vittoria has not had

any day naps over the last

week. I’m not complaining;

she goes to bed easy, sleeps

well and wakes up late

because of it. But I really

felt like I needed that break

on Monday.

I was just hanging out

for her bed time. I used

the animated adventures

of Pingu as a babysitter to

get me through and allow

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

me to have a strong coffee

in peace.

Waking up on Tuesday,

though, I was back to my

happy self and feeling great

about things again.

I guess you have to

accept you’ll not love every

bit of every day of stay-athome

parenting, much like

any job.

Another step to improve harbour health

A NEW memorandum

highlights an ongoing

commitment to improving the

health of Lyttelton Harbour.

The document, which includes

a long-term vision for the area,

was signed by the Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour group’s five

partners last week.

The partners are Te Hapu

o Ngati Wheke, Lyttelton

Port Company, Environment

Canterbury, the city council and

Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu.

The previous memorandum of

understanding, signed in 2016,

discussed the specifics of the

plan, while the new document

will supersede it and focus on

implementation to deliver the

actions.

Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour

partnership chairwoman Yvette

Couch-Lewis, of Te Hapu o

Ngati Wheke, said the new

memorandum was another

positive step forward.

“This document is about

making a commitment to

the community to ensure

the long-term sustainability

of Whakaraupo Lyttelton

Harbour,” Ms Couch-Lewis said.

“The harbour catchment area

is important to so many people

and we want the community to

engage with us to help improve

its ecological and cultural

health.”

Over the past 12 months, key

projects have been started or

received support from the group,

including reducing sediment

and contaminant inputs into

waterways, soil mapping of

Lyttelton Harbour, and Quail

Late last year, Karen Banwell

was appointed Whakaraupo

programme manager. A

community advisory group

for the plan was established

recently. The group will act as

a mechanism for community

engagement and provide advice

on how the plan can support or

initiate community-led projects.

The group and Dr Banwell

met last month to nominate

representatives from the urban

harbour communities. Those

discussions will start early next

month and aim to establish a

group of about 10 people to meet

quarterly.

Dr Banwell said the

community advisory group was

another important marker in

implementing the Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour plan.

“This is a great way for us to

ensure we connect with our

stakeholders and community

as they will play a big role in

helping us to deliver this plan,”

Dr Banwell said.

associated with it, was

Award-winning young Lyttelton artist shows talent

LYTTELTON painter Ruby

herself as an artist.

At the inaugural Creators’

Room art exhibition,

the 17-year-old St

student took out the

people’s choice award

for her painting The

Breadmaker.

The Creators’ Room

was launched last year

to provide year 11-13

visual arts students

with a platform to

sell their work and be

recognised.

Ruby’s work explores

religion, belief systems and

cultural curiosities. Some of her

work is based on her upbringing

near “some of the stranger

places in New Zealand, like the

Lyttelton Museum and rural

Banks Peninsula.” A total of 1282

artworks from 16 Christchurch

secondary schools were submitted

for the exhibition.

Fifteen top artists were

selected to display their

work, which included

Ruby, who is in her last

year at St Margaret’s.

The exhibition invited

members of the public

to view the works and

bid on them in a silent

auction.

Three of Ruby’s

artworks were sold for a

combined total of $2075.

Ruby MCallum The Breadmaker was

sold for $1000, The

Explorers went for $675 and Angel

netted $400.

Ruby’s success puts her on

the way to achieving her goal of

exhibiting and selling her work

The 25 or so people who

make up Sumner Silver

Band are heirs to a proud

tradition which can be

traced back to the 1880s.

Back then, it was called

the Sumner Marine Band

and also the Sumner Brass

Band. It may not be widely

known, but during the

band’s heyday in the 1950s,

they were twice national

champions in their grade.

Today, the band doesn’t

get involved in traditional

contesting to such a serious

extent but instead sees itself

as providing a friendly

social environment where

brass players can get

together to share in the joy

of making music while at

the same time being part

of an important community

asset which entertains

throughout the local area.

Its programme is very

varied, ranging from the

The band is very visible

public performances

which include the Sumner/

in December. They also

play more widely throughout

rebuilding. Youngsters

often have only a few years

with us before moving

away for study and then

work, and at the other end

of the age scale, none of

us can keep going forever,

hence the band is always

looking for new blood to

maintain its ranks.

In recent years the

band has had several new

members returning to

brass playing after many

years without touching an

instrument at all. Playing

brass is a bit like riding a

bike, once learnt it’s something

you never forget, just

a bit wobbly at first.

The band meets every

Thursday evening from

7.30 to 9pm at the Redcliffs

Bowling Club in James

St, and would love to hear

from anyone who is interested

in becoming part of

the band. Age is no barrier

nor is the lack of an instrument

as the band supplies

them at no cost.

Calls for ‘control’ over

shellfish gathering

Linwood-

Central-

Heathcote

Community

Board and Avon

Heathcote Ihutai

Estuary Trust

Board member

Tim Lindley writes about

the community’s reaction

to shellfish gathering in the

estuary

THE IMPACT of shellfish

gathering in the estuary on

shellfish numbers, birdlife

and human health has been

of growing concern for local

communities. To help everyone

better understand these issues,

the Avon Heathcote Estuary

Ihutai Trust recently hosted a

public meeting at the Mt Pleasant

Community Centre.

About 90 attended and

a lively discussion ensued.

Presenters included marine

biology professor Islay Marsden,

medical officer of health Alistair

Humphrey, representatives

from the Ministry for Primary

Industries, and estuary birdlife

expert Andrew Crossland.

AHEIT chairman Kit

Doudney welcomed everyone

then facilitator Gay Pavelka

sought questions from the floor,

and asked various experts to

comment.

Dr Marsden noted student

research, commissioned by

AHEIT, showed that cockle

numbers had dropped from

about 500 to 200 per square

metre in collection areas and

there is a concerning change in

the ratio of adults to juveniles.

Care has to be taken with these

numbers as the survey was

limited and more research is

needed.

Dr Humphrey said all sorts

of muck from the streets of

Christchurch gets washed into

the estuary, including copper

from brake pads, and dog faeces.

Filter feeding estuary shellfish

simply are not safe to eat and

there are other, safer places to

gather from.

Dr Crossland said the main

birds affected are oyster-catchers.

They are very mobile so if the

estuary has human disturbance

and fewer cockles, they will

quickly prefer somewhere else.

He also has good connections

with migrants from Southeast

Asia, where shellfish gathering is

commonplace, and has discussed

that our estuary is different from

the warm waters of the tropics

where replenishment happens

much faster. He helped give a

very human perspective on those

who gather seafood.

The discussion then moved to

potential solutions. The feeling

from the floor was that a ban is

not needed but control is.

The Ngai Tuahuriri

representatives said almost all

parties seem of the same mind.

They offered to work with

AHEIT, as tools within their

customary rights – for example

mataitai – could help protect the

estuary.

There was strong support

from the floor for exploring

this approach further. This was

an extraordinarily successful

event ending in a consensus and

community-driven pathway

forward.

HISTORIC: Little River’s Coronation Library was built to mark

the coronation of King George V in 1913.

New use for old library

• By Jess Gibson

LITTLE RIVER’S historic

Coronation Library will be

restored and become a base for

community activities.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board

approved the future

use of the 108-yearold

building on

Christchurch Akaroa

Rd as a base for the

Little River Wairewa

Community Trust.

The trust will hold

commemorations, meetings and

cultural events in the building.

However, first the trust will

need a community partnership

agreement with the city council

before the building can be

restored for $650,000.

A full scope of work to

Mario

Downes

repair the building will also be

prepared and the work tendered.

Little River Wairewa

Community Trust acting

chairman Mario Downes said

the community board’s

decision was “good news.”

“Obviously a bit of

work has gone on in the

background to try and

secure it. It will be good to

have the building in use

again,” Mr Downes said.

The trust currently holds

its meeting in the Little River

Library and Service Centre.

The Coronation Library was

built to mark the coronation of

King George V. It was opened in

1913, and was used as a library

until 2000.

It was damaged in the

September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes.

Sumner win in spite of high injury toll

SPORT

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER CONTINUED their

bright start in the bottom six of

the premier metro competition.

However, it will be a challenge

to keep 15 players on the field

which Saturday’s win over

Canterbury University is best

remembered for.

The bonus point 36-10 win

was achieved with what coach

Martin Dodgson described as

“typical Sumner grit.” A freak

run of injuries during the match

and in the build-up to it meant

Sumner finished with a line-up

they could never anticipate putting

on the field.

It all started on the Friday

evening before the match when

Dodgson received a text message

from captain Tom Manly to

inform him he was in hospital.

“He somehow found a hand

specialist late on Friday and they

said go to the hospital now, you

need an operation because he’d

buggered up all the ligaments in

his hand,” said Dodgson.

The loss of Manly meant

Sumner had just 16 players for

their premier team and were

reliant on filling their bench with

a number of players who arrived

at St Leonards Park after kick-off

after travelling back across town

following a 0-87 battering from

FERRYMEAD BAYS have

missed out on a spot in the

Southern Football League

after a final day defeat in their

Mainland Premier League to

Cashmere Technical.

Going into Saturday’s match

against the MPL champions at

Garrick Park, Bays needed a win

to guarantee a top-five finish in

the league which would grant

them a spot in the SFL.

However, a 0-6 loss left Bays

relying on other results going their

way as Tech showed the level of

play which has seen them average a

league record four goals per game.

Bays’ fate was sealed in ever

WALKING WOUNDED: (From left) – Mathew Tuala, Charles Oswald and James Orritt all suffered serious injuries on Saturday

during Sumner’s 36-10 win over University.

Christchurch at Christchurch

Park.

A number of the division

two players would go onto play

well over 100 minutes of rugby

during the day due to premier

players breaking down during

the match.

It didn’t take long after kick-off

in the match against University

for the injury ward to receive a

few more visitors. First, outside

back Charles Oswald suffered a

more commanding fashion at

English Park where Coastal

Spirit completed an 11-0 demolished

of lowly FC Twenty 11. The

result means they leapfrog Bays

into fifth spot and the SFL.

In the match at Garrick Park,

Bays came in with hopes of an

upset after handing Tech their

only MPL defeat in the opening

round of the competition. A repeat

looked off the cards early when

Garbhan Coughlan opened the

scoring and then set up Seth Clark

for Tech’s second after 21min.

Clark scored his second just

after the break with Coughlan

adding his second with 15min

dislocated shoulder. He was then

joined by prop James Orrit due

to an AC separation. Early in the

second half No. 8 Mathew Tuala

also dislocated his shoulder.

“I didn’t watch any rugby

because I was too busy trying to

get 15 players on the field,” said

Dodgson.

“We ended up with a half-back

who started on the wing going

to fullback, a hooker at No. 8,

a prop at hooker, and five guys

to play before Finbar Gallaway

added Tech’s fifth.

Coughlan then completing

his fourth hat-trick in the MPL

this season with time almost up

to claim the golden boot with

18 goals, one ahead of Nelson

Suburb’s Cameron Gordon.

who had just finished playing

division two all on the field.

“Good old Jimmy [James]

Selkirk has been in Thailand and

look he’s a good honest div two

player, he comes on and plays

like a man mountain. All those

div two guys were running hard

and tackling everything.”

Sumner now face their toughest

task of the bottom six to date

this Saturday against Burnside,

who will also be looking to make

it into one of the top two positions

which would give them

give them a spot in the plate

play-offs.

They will also be looking to

avenge a 25-29 loss to Burnside

when the sides met at Burnside

Park during the first phase of the

competition last month.

Kia expands GT Line into Cerato range

IN A GLOBAL market

hell-bent on buying sport utility

vehicles, there’s a lot to be said for

the traditional family sedan and

liftback/hatchback.

There are plenty of bargains to

be had in that part of the market,

and although the segment has

diminished a lot in recent years,

there is still good choice, especially

mid-size models.

Personally, I’m a bit of a sedan

fan, and I’m pleased to report

there are still some crackers coming

out of Asia.

One of the very progressive Korean

companies still offering sedans

and liftbacks is Kia, and their

mid-size model – the Cerato – has

just entered a new generation.

Effectively, there are six models

in the range, LX, EX, GT Line and

GT; the LX and EX are available

in both body styles, the GT Line

and GT are liftback-only variants.

I’m scheduled into the turbocharged

1.6-litre GT later in the

year, however, this evaluation

focuses on the GT Line that is

powered by a naturally-aspirated

2-litre engine which, incidentally,

is pretty much a carryover from

the previous generation.

The Cerato GT Line is priced at

$39,990, taking into account the

range starts at $31,990 for the LX

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

and ends at $41,990 for the GT.

The GT Line gets a hefty range

of specification, leather trim with

heated and cooling seats, satellite

navigation, Apple Car Play

and Android Auto, smart cruise

control and touch screen control

system are all included, plus there

is a high level of kit for safety.

Fitment aside, what the Cerato

does in the first instance is to

provide an inviting driving experience,

one which is smooth and

relates to comfortable travel.

It is also a car which won’t cost

a lot of terms of usage. Kia rate

the engine with a 7.4l/100km

(38mpg) combined cycle average,

and that wasn’t too far distant

from the 8l/100km (35mpg)

figure constantly showing on

the fuel usage readout. It also

displays a 5.5l/100km (51mpg)

instantaneous figure when travelling

at 100km/h (engine speed

2050rpm).

On the subject of figures, the

engine is rated with a 120kW

(6200rpm) power output, that’s a

hearty figure for a 1999cc engine,

and it also gets a useful 192Nm of

torque available just above midrange

in the rev band at 4000rpm.

It is a lively engine and lets you

know when it is working hard but

even though it is quite audible it

KIA CERATO GT LINE: Sporty variant amidst comprehensive

sedan and hatchback line-up.

isn’t overbearing. The benefit is

a fully responsive throttle pedal

through the entire rev range, it is

constantly eager.

Power is transferred through

a six-speed automatic gearbox

to the front wheels, there are no

surprises there, but to say the

transmission is a beauty in terms

of sophistication. Interestingly,

there are no paddle shifters in the

GT Line, but manual shifts can be

made from the main gear lever.

There are also three drive

modes – eco, comfort and smart,

the latter switching to sport mode

if throttle percentage is high.

I used smart mode mostly, it

recognises each driver’s style and

adjusts the engine management

protocols to suit.

In terms of acceleration, a GT

Line buyer can expect a standstill

to 100km/h time of 9sec, and it will

power strongly through a highway

overtake in 5.2sec. These aren’t as

quick as what you’ll get out of the

GT proper, but they are enough to

satisfy the buyer who doesn’t want

outright performance.

I took the test car on my standard

inland loop, incorporating a

run up and down the Waimakariri

Gorge incline. It cruises the

long straights with quiet motion,

and also takes on a sporty feel

when presented with a corner or

two. I pushed the test car in both

directions in and out of the gorge,

the chassis worked well, and that

considering the rear suspension

in the Cerato is a simplistic torsion

beam type.

Ordinarily, there’s some suspension

movement restriction in

non-independent systems, but

body movement was well contained,

and uneven road surfaces

didn’t present any surprises, the

spring and damper rates are set

• Price – Kia Cerato GT Line,

$39,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4510mm; width,

1800mm; height,

1445mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1999cc, 112kW,

192Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.4sec

• Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

towards controlled absorption.

Steering feel is sharp, and directional

accuracy is decisive. A lot

of that has to do with the quality

of the rubber, the Kumho tyres

(225/45 x 17in) have high grip

properties and are quiet on most

surfaces.

I’m buoyed by Kia’s continuation

of the Cerato line, I guess the

company could have decided to

abandon the concept, but I can

safely say those who do find their

way into the hatch or sedan will

find it a well-built, capable car

that does very little wrong.

It needs to be tempting, car

makers that are still plying

that part of the market have

some amazing models that are

hugely competitive. The Mazda

3 is one of those that has also

just undergone a complete

transformation, it is there to keep

Cerato honest, it’s just as well,

then, that the latter has the goods

to compete.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

Gaynor stanley

There are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around Star

Media’s open plan office, I paid close attention to reactions. As a

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page

6) and copper hues (Ryan and Jen’s, page 30). Matt and Celia (page

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs

that keep the cold out and the dust and electricity bi ls down.

I really hope this magazine, and its associated Home & Living

Show ( June 28-30), leave you brimming with the knowledge and

inspiration to smarten up your home too.
