Redcliffs

liquor store

gets the

green light

• By Jess Gibson

A LIQUOR store planned for

Redcliffs Village has got the

go-ahead.

The district licensing

committee released its decision

on Monday, which gives Rizak

Enterprises Ltd the green light to

set up an off-licence at 1/87 Main

Rd.

The committee’s decision

includes changes to Rizak

Enterprises Ltd sole director

and shareholder Juraj Singh’s

application based on submissions

in opposition to the proposal.

The changes included labelling

the store Redcliffs Fine Wine and

Spirits instead of Thirsty Liquor,

CCTV security inside

and outside the store and no

alcohol advertising outside the

building.

Its opening hours will also be

reduced from 9am-10pm to 9am-

9pm, Monday to Sunday.

A hearing was held in May

after 46 written submissions

were made in opposition to the

off-licence, with nine people

making verbal submissions.

A petition containing the

names of 97 people opposing the

store was also presented at the

hearing.

from the editor’s desk

IT’S BEEN a long drawn-out saga but the

liquor store planned for Redcliffs will go

ahead (see page 1).

That’s pending any appeal those who were

against it might decide to lodge.

It’s not overly surprising the liquor store got the green light

from the district licensing committee.

There was vocal opposition to the liquor store and those people

carried that through to the hearing by making submissions.

The company behind the liquor store said it would not be your

normal suburban bottle shop.

So the licensing committee has held it to that pledge by

restricting signage. There won’t be flashy colourful signs

advertising all sorts of products, which should keep the look of

the store in line with the rest of the village.

Swastika joke turns sour

Comedian

pushed after

punchline

• By Louis Day

A COMEDIAN was grabbed

by the back of the head and

pushed after he made a joke

about white supremacists during

a show.

During Simon Kingsley-

Holmes’ set at the Madeira Hotel

in Akaroa he made a joke about

playing scrabble with a white

supremacist.

Kingsley-Holmes then pulled a

scrabble board from his bag with

the tiles arranged in the shape

of a swastika and delivered the

punchline: “What a prick, he

glued all the tiles to the board.”

He also made reference to

finding a swastika in a public

toilet in Timaru.

The comedian has steered clear

of swastika-related jokes since

the March 15 mosque shootings.

But when he did his set on June

15, he thought enough

time had passed to reintroduce

white supremacist-related

material into his act.

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.

THE

COMEDY NIGHT

Boy racers cause carnage

across peninsula during tribute drive

• By Jess Gibson

A CONVOY of more than 200

boy racers caused damage across

Banks Peninsula in a drive

which paid tribute to a man who

recently died.

Vehicles

gathered in

the car park of

Mitre 10 MEGA

Ferrymead

and travelled

to Akaroa,

stopping at

Graham

Barrell

points along

the way to do

burnouts.

Police received about 20 reports

of the convoy.

A police spokesperson said the

first report was in Ferrymead

about 9.45pm, and the last was

in Teddington about 12.30am on

Saturday morning.

“Police attended and spoke

with some of those involved but

no arrests were made.”

Community parks manager Al

Hardy said the city council noticed

an increase in parks-related

damage over that weekend.

“Between Saturday, June 22,

and Tuesday, June 25,we received

three calls to notify us of damage

to Ferrymead and Barnett Parks,

as well as Allandale Reserve.

2019

CONVOY: A video posted on an event page showed a large

number of vehicles outside Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead ready

to convoy over to Akaroa.

Damage included tyre marks on

the field, and bollards and cables

pulled out of the ground,” Mr

Hardy said.

“Council will work to repair

the damage to the parks as soon

as possible.”

Residents took to Facebook to

share photos of the damage in

Governors Bay.

At Allandale Reserve the grass

had been ripped up by spinning

Other damage across

Banks Peninsula included

litter, burnouts and road

signs knocked over outside

the Gebbies Garden Cafe on

Christchurch Akaroa Rd.

Allandale Reserve

Management Committee acting

chairman Graham Barrell

was “disappointed with the

vandalism.”

“I drove past and saw that

the post which held the chain

to keep vehicles out had been

smashed over and the ground

was covered in tyre tracks,” Mr

Barrell said.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board deputy chairman Tyrone

Fields was told about a “huge

amount of litter” at Teddington

the following morning.

Mr Fields said boy racing is

an “acknowledged problem”

across Banks Peninsula and

damage caused by vehicles,

such as burnouts, are “not

uncommon.”

On an event page for those

taking part in the convoy,

a comment about damaged

road signs called it “disgusting

behaviour” and said the night

was not meant to be about

acting stupidly.

Road work

continues in

Sumner Village

• By Jess Gibson

THE NEXT step in the delivery of

the Sumner Village Master Plan is

under way.

Contractors are pouring new

kerbs and gutters on parts of Burgess

St, sealing Burgess St, preparing

to pave the south side of Marriner

St and finishing off installing

the water main and stormwater

pipes along Wakefield Ave.

Marriner St east will open and

close intermittently but contractors

will try and keep it open to traffic as

much as possible.

A one-way system will start today

to enable the final road reconstruction

work between the Hollywood

Theatre and the skate ramp.

This means traffic heading to the

city from Sumner will be detoured

through Nayland St west and the

city-bound bus stop will shift back

to Nayland St.

Contractors will finish installing

the new stormwater and water

pipes through the Nayland St/

Wakefield Avenue intersection during

the day, starting this week.

Vehicles are advised to slow down

and follow signage and instructions

from workers on site.

Peter Buttigieg - Shortest Way

Home One Mayor’s Challenge and a Model

for America’s Future. By Peter Buttigieg

Once described by The Washington Post as “the most interesting

mayor you’ve never heard of”, Pete Buttigieg, the thirty-six-year-old

Democratic mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has improbably emerged

as one of the US’s most visionary politicians. First elected in 2011,

Buttigieg left a successful business career to move back to his

hometown, previously tagged by Newsweek as a “dying city”, because

the industrial Midwest beckoned as a challenge to the McKinseytrained

Harvard graduate. Whether meeting with city residents on

middle-school basketball courts, reclaiming abandoned houses,

confronting gun violence, or attracting high-tech industry, Buttigieg has

transformed South Bend into a shining model of urban reinvention.

Shortest Way Home interweaves two once-unthinkable success

stories: that of an Afghanistan veteran who came out and found love

and acceptance, all while in office, and that of a Rust Belt city so

thoroughly transformed that it shatters the way we view America’s

so-called flyover country.

Queens of the Kingdom

The Women of Saudi Arabia Speak.

By Nicola Sutcliff

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is one of the most mysterious and secretive

societies in modern times and the lives of the women living there is

perhaps the most intriguing aspect of all. What do the women of Saudi

Arabia really think about their lives? What are their hopes and dreams?

To separate fact from fiction, Nicola Sutcliff spent four years living in the

Kingdom, meeting and interviewing women of all ages and from all walks

of life. Their stories are presented here and paint a portrait of a country that

appears to be on the cusp of change.

In this collection of essays, the women talk candidly about their lives

and their hopes for the future. Meet Hafsa, a Bedouin who gave birth to

eleven children in the open desert; Jamila, the first wife in a polygamous

household; Jamila, a medical student who married a stranger in order to

pursue her education. Meet these and many other women and learn what

they think about subjects as diverse as education, driving, the religious

police, male guardianship, social media, women’s rights, love and

marriage, underground parties, under-the-abaya fashion and sexuality.

Authentic, eye-opening, inspiring and courageous, they capture the

essence of what it is like to be a woman living in Saudi Arabia today.

Dame Vera Lynn – Some Sunny Day

The remarkable autobiography of the last

great wartime icon. By Vera Lynn

Born Vera Welch on 20 March, 1917 in the East End of London,

Dame Vera Lynn’s career was set from an early age - along with her

father, who also did a ‘turn’, she sang in Working Men’s Clubs from

just seven years old. She had a successful radio career with Joe Loss

and Charlie Kunz in the 1920s and ‘30s, but it was with World War II

that she became the iconic figure that captured the imagination of the

national public. Her spirit and verve, along with her ability to connect

with the men fighting for their country and those left behind praying for

their loved ones, made her the ‘Forces’ sweetheart’. Her career after

the war flourished, with hits in the US and the UK, but Vera was never

able to leave behind her wartime role and was deeply affected by what

she had seen. Still heavily involved with veteran and other charities,

this is Dame Vera’s vivid story of her life and her war - from bombs

and rations to dance halls and the searing heat of her appearances

abroad. Epitomising British fortitude and hope, Dame Vera gives a vivid

portrait of Britain at war, and a unique story of one woman who came to

symbolize a nation.

Chanel’s Riviera

Life, Love and the Struggle for Survival on the

Cote d’Azur, 1930-1944. By Anne de Courcy

Far from worrying about the onset of war, in the spring of 1938 the

burning question on the French Riviera was whether one should curtsey

to the Duchess of Windsor. Few of those who had settled there thought

much about what was going on in the rest of Europe. It was a golden,

glamorous life, far removed from politics or conflict.

Featuring a sparkling cast of artists, writers and historical figures

including Winston Churchill, Daisy Fellowes, Salvador Dali, the Duke

and Duchess of Windsor, Eileen Gray and Edith Wharton, with the

enigmatic Coco Chanel at its heart. A captivating account of a period that

saw some of the deepest extremes of luxury and terror in the whole of

the twentieth century.

From Chanel’s first summer at her Roquebrune villa La Pausa (in the

later years with her German lover) amid the glamour of the pre-war

parties and casinos in Antibes, Nice and Cannes to the horrors of

evacuation and the displacement of thousands of families during the

Second World War, it explores the fascinating world of the Cote d’Azur

elite in the 1930s and 1940s.

LYTTELTON RESIDENTS can

have their say on a proposal to

develop Naval Point.

The two options open for public

feedback focus on site enhancement,

improved accessibility and

greater recreational safety – on

and off the water.

Option two also proposes that

the city council acquires a 1.2ha

block to help reconfigure the

Naval Point site.

Head of parks Andrew Rutledge

said the options have been

developed following discussions

with key stakeholders, working

with Rāpaki Marae and considerable

site research.

“We want to further develop

the water-focused recreational

space and ensure easy harbour

access that everyone can enjoy,

along with improved boating

safety. We also want to improve

the existing recreational facilities

already based in the area,” Mr

Rutledge said.

“Naval Point is one of the few

all-tide water access points for

Christchurch.

“Coupled with its rare, flat recreational

area, it is a major drawcard

for water sports enthusiasts,

and we need to carefully weigh

up development options based on

an array of community views.

“Once we have a preferred

option, we can then carry out

detailed planning and costings

for the Naval Point Development

Plan, which will go out for further

public consultation in 2020.”

Under both options, the waterfront

area will be reorganised to

improve access and safety.

Parking areas will be upgraded

and the present public ramp expanded.

It is proposed the Naval

Point Club and the Coastguard

will share a new facility that more

fully meets the needs of both

organisations.

Space will also be set aside for

the possible future development

Pupils plant 750 natives

at Sumnervale Reserve

• By Jess Gibson

SUMNER SCHOOL pupils helped plant

750 native grasses, shrubs and trees in

Sumnervale Reserve on June 22.

With help from the city council’s rangers,

about 220 pupils in years 5 to 8 were

involved in the first phase of a three-year

project which will eventually include the

whole school.

The project was set up by the city council,

Sumner School, Sumner Environment

Group and the Sumner Valley Riding

School. It will eventually improve water

quality in the stream and increase habitat

in the valley.

MAORI New Year was celebrated at Busy

C’s Preschool in Lyttelton with an evening

filled with songs, stories and food.

The Matariki event is a highlight on the

pre-school’s calendar each year, with children

and their families dressing up for the

evening in pyjamas and dressing-gowns.

This year the kids performed a play to tell

a story about children who plant trees to

provide food for native birds.

It was written by one of the teachers,

Frances Sommer, and tied in with Busy C’s

Enviroschool curriculum.

It aims to familiarise and encourage empathy

with the native species in the area.

“Tamariki have loved researching our

local native flora and fauna, and creating

the props and costumes for this play. They

are very keen to perform for their whanau

and friends,” said service provider Caro

Davidson.

Songs were performed in sign language

Deputy principal Rebecca Power said

the day was an opportunity for pupils to

be connected and involved over a period

of time in their local community and

environment.

“The pupils all know the Sumnervale

Reserve and can relate to this local environmental

opportunity to do something

in their own backyard. The planting day

was exciting for them as they could immediately

see they had helped to make a

difference.”

Some pupils gave their plants pet names

and vowed to go back and check how they

grow.

Australian

band

Icehouse

will headline

Selwyn

Sounds

at Lincoln

Domain

in March.

TONY MOTT

LINE-UP:

Iain, Graham,

Keith, Rick

and Paul from

10cc will also

perform.

Selwyn Sounds ‘strongest line-up yet’

THE LINE-UP for the next

Selwyn Sounds rock festival is

being touted as the best ever.

Iconic Australian band

Icehouse will headline the

Lincoln Domain event on March

7. Tickets go on sale at midnight

on Thursday at

www.selwynsounds.co.nz.

Said promoter David Parlane:

“This will be the fourth year

of Selwyn Sounds and this is

the best and strongest lineup

yet with three incredible

international acts.”

“Icehouse hasn’t played in

Christchurch since 1991, so very

proud to bring them to Lincoln

to play at Selwyn Sounds.”

The line-up will also feature

international acts 10cc, Midge

Ure, who is the voice of Ultravox,

and Kiwi bands Zed, The

Mockers, Automatic 80s and Jed

Parsons.

Icehouse was formed by Iva

Davies, the band’s frontman and

musical creative force, who led

the band to 28 platinum albums,

eight top 10 albums and more

than 30 top 40 singles, including

Great Southern Land, Hey Little

Girl, Crazy, Electric Blue, and We

Can Get Together.

“The band has been playing

together for more than 40 years,

selling out shows around the

world, including their last New

Zealand tour, selling out three

shows in record times to 45,000

people and rave reviews,” said Mr

Parlane.

“Midge Ure continues to tour

and play all around the world.

Many will remember Ultravox

from their exhilarating show at

Sweetwaters in the 80s. Their hit

album Vienna was in the NZ top

40 for over 47 weeks. 10cc has

sold out many concerts in New

Zealand in the past, with such hits

as Dreadlock Holiday, The Things

We Do For Love, I’m Not In Love,

Art For Art’s Sake, Rubber Bullets,

I’m Mandy Fly Me and Donna.

Getting the band Zed, which

will reunite after 15 years,

was a coup, he said. “They are

a real rock and roll story of

Christchurch school mates,” said

Mr Parlane.

The school mates formed a

band and went on to have four

top 10 hits.

Zed’s hits include Renegade

Fighter and Glorafilia. The group

recorded two albums, toured the

world, and then broke up. Zed

is back together to celebrate the

20-year anniversary of its debut

album Silencer.

Selwyn Sounds will again

benefit the local community, said

Mr Parlane.

“We have great support

from the Lincoln community.

Lincoln High will once again be

providing parking and all money

raised will go back to the school.

Our volunteer base comes from

numerous community groups in

the Selwyn region and its great

to support them through Selwyn

Sounds.”

TALENT: Midge Ure, the voice

of British new wave band

Ultravox.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Lyttelton takes a beating on Facebook

Lyttelton has received

a scathing yet satirical

review on the Sh** Towns

of New Zealand Facebook

page. The post, calling the

suburb a “grubby little

sh**-tip” and a “Lyttel

bit sh**, has received a

mixed response from the

community. Reporter

Jess Gibson gets reaction

from people in Lyttelton

Malcolm Carne disapproved

of what the post said about his

home of 20 years.

“Whoever wrote it is a nasty

idiot and

obviously

deluded

because it’s a

great place to

live. What can

I say without

using swear

words . . .

Malcolm

Carne

they’re a total

twit,” Mr Carne

said.

“They obviously haven’t

spent any time here or at least

not more than 5min. It’s total

bullsh** and I’ve never heard

such cr** in my life.”

Caro

Allison had

a different

outlook on the

post after living

in Lyttelton for

24 years.

“I think it’s

really clever

Caro Allison

and very, very

funny. It’s

fantastic and absolutely true,”

she said.

“Geographically and mentally,

we are kind of stuck here in a

way. Even though we’ve got the

ocean, the port and the harbour

out there, we are in our own

gorgeous bubble and if we can’t

laugh, it gets very sad.”

Caine Tauwhine, who has

lived in Rapaki for 15 years, said

the statements “might have been

the case in the 80s but not now.”

JOKING: In spite of its bustling cafe scene, Lyttelton received

an unflattering satirical write-up on a popular Facebook page.

Caine

Tauwhine

He said the

post was “too

harsh.”

“Lyttelton

is full of all

sorts – we get

the freaks,

the geeks and

everything in

between, but

the thing about

all those types is that they love

the place,” Mr Tauwhine said.

Guy Higginson, who grew

up in Lyttelton, also said the post

was harsh.

“I would say it’s probably

one of the best places to grow

up in. People

that don’t live

there have got

no idea,” Mr

Higginson said.

He did not

agree with the

town being

labelled “a

Guy

Higginson

Lyttel bit sh**”.

“Lyttelton is

Lyttelton, you

can give it a

name, but it’s a bit tongue-incheek

really. I guess it’s a play on

words.”

Denise Alty commutes to

Lyttelton through the tunnel

every day for work. She was

appalled by the post, calling

it “utterly

irrelevant and

ridiculous.”

“People come

here to enjoy

the ambience,

the feel and

the vibe. It’s

an incredibly

Denise Alty supportive

and closeknit

community. I work here

and grew up over the hill, so

Lyttelton is definitely a big part

of my life,” she said.

“I love Lyttelton, as do most

other Cantabrians. It’s a place

of character, artistry and peace.

This is disgusting.”

Lyttelton mother Emma

Dunningham took no offence

to the post, calling it funny, well

written and

witty.

“I certainly

don’t see

anything to be

offended about.

I think it’s all

pretty spot-on

Emma

Dunningham

and the things

that they are

bringing up as

a negative are

things that some of us can see as

a positive.”

SH** TOWNS of New Zealand

is a Facebook page which

reviews places across the

country.

It aims to tell people “all the

best places not to go on a New

Zealand holiday.”

Its profile of Lyttelton last

week received more than 1000

comments and 250 shares.

The post read: “Lyttelton

(dyslexic for ‘Little Town’) is

a notorious haunt of sailors,

dockers, Cantabrians and other

unsavoury types. The grubby

little s***-tip is a port town,

which means it exists primarily

for shipping out coal to overseas

global warming factories and

shipping in heroin.”

The post had a crack at

Lyttelton’s history and implied

the port town is stuck in its old

ways.

“Lyttelton’s favourite feature

is its timeball station, which

he called it

“laughable.”

“It’s water off

a duck’s back,”

he said.

“I mean, they

are good at

creative writing

but that’s about

Evan Kiddy it. It’s harsh,

but it’s just one

person’s view and that’s the sh**

thing about Facebook – people

can post whatever they like.”

Jason Lockhorst thought

there was some truth in the

post but the comments are not

limited to Lyttelton.

“Everything they talked

about has likely happened at

was reconstructed after the 2011

earthquake, despite timeballs

becoming obsolete about a

century ago. The timeball is well

worth seeing for anyone who’s

never heard of a clock,” it read.

It also criticised the Lyttelton

Rd tunnel, which was once the

longest in New Zealand until

Auckland’s Waterview Tunnel

opened in 2017. ‘

“The opening of the Lyttelton

Tunnel allowed road traffic from

Christchurch to reach the town

in record time, which became

known as ‘the speed of disappointment’,”

read the post.

The post listed an unusual

range of activities to do in Lyttelton,

including “joining a folk

band . . . or getting in a knife

fight with a Russian fisherman.”

The page targeted Rolleston

in November and gained a

similar mixed response from

residents.

some point in

time, but it’s

also probably

happened in

every city in

New Zealand

as well.”

“It was satire

and was a

hook, line and

sinker for a

lot of people.

Whoever wrote it was looking

for a laugh and they got laughs.

But of course, it ruffled a few

feathers,” Mr Lockhorst said.

VITTORIA

& Matt

A real nasty mess

HAPPY MATARIKI everyone.

I hope you’re all using this

wintery time of year as a perfectly

appropriate Kiwi cultural excuse

to eat heaps with the family.

Obviously hangi or a generous

roast are the best bets. Vittoria

had her first full hangi meal on

Saturday.

Now that I’ve got you thinking

of delicious food and eating, let’s

take this lowbrow and talk about

bodily functions. Just what you

wanted right? I’ve always counted

myself lucky to have avoided the

real nastiness of parenting babies

and toddlers so far. While my

mates have had all sorts of dramas,

I’ve missed (or dodged) the worst

of it.

I still count myself as lucky in

that regard (thankfully), but I got

my first taste of an ‘oh-hell-no’

toiletry nightmare this week.

After coming home from an

activity last week a whiff of bad

cabbage cologne told me it was

change time. Luckily, it was all

contained and wasn’t so bad in the

big scheme of things.

I congratulated myself on

another job well done.

She’d wet her pants a little

through the nappy and the house

was warm so I left her just in her

top and nappy for a bit while I

had some lunch in the kitchen

(out of the wee seagull’s view).

The true horror began soon

after. Leaving the kitchen,

RELAXED: Vittoria and I had

an afternoon in the park to

move on from the trauma of a

nightmare code brown.

I looked into the hall and

immediately asked the question:

“Is that a wee jobbie?”

It was. Right there on the floor.

But not just there.

Suffice to say, if it gets on a

shoe that’s about 30cm off

the floor on a rack, you’ve got

problems mate. Lord have mercy.

Round two was too much for her

nappy to handle.

So I rolled up my sleeves (way

up) and got stuck in, battling

through a tantrum, an awful

smell and kicking legs to clean up

the offending nightmare and get

Vittoria through a quick shower.

After that we both deserved a

fun afternoon in the park – as far

away from thoughts of a digested

meal as possible.

Lions raise $260k for health hub

AKAROA’S NEW health centre

has received a $260,000 funding

boost.

The Akaroa and Bays Lions

Club presented a cheque to the

Akaroa Health Trust last week.

The club spent five years

fundraising the amount within

the community and received

a $153,000 contribution from

Lions International.

The donation pushed the

trust’s funding to more than

$1.7 million. With the new

targeted city council rate to

collect $1.3 million, the initial $3

million goal has been met. The

centre will cost $5.9 million.

Said former Akaroa and

Bays Lions Club president

Tony Walls: “We need our

communities. These people have

repeatedly put their hands into

their pockets over the last five

years. They turned the vision of

an integrated health hub into a

reality.”

Mr Walls said the work

undertaken by Lions in Akaroa

has been subtle but significant.

The project raised $107,000

from fundraisers like Paddy’s

markets, street raffles, the Lions

golf tournaments and donations

from cruise ship passengers

visiting Akaroa.”

While raising the money,

Lions members continued

to support people, clubs and

causes.

At the presentation, Mr Walls

paid tribute to Paul de Latour,

who worked hard to support the

fundraising appeal over many

years.

Clubs former district governor

Philip Lynch spoke about the

contributions from Lions Clubs

Trust chairman Gordon Boxall (right).

International and the Lions

Clubs International Foundation.

The two groups donated

a combined $1.5 million to

Christchurch following the

quakes. Mr Lynch was the

Lions Earthquake Committee

chairman in Canterbury. The

group distributed the funds

which were used to re-establish

a number of community

activities.

Akaroa Health Trust

chairman Gordon Boxall said

the community was “incredibly

grateful to have a strong and

spirited Lions club.”

“This is a very significant

contribution towards our new

integrated health facility.”

“When Lions are involved,

problems get smaller, and

communities get better.”

As the $3 million goal has

been met, further community

fundraising will reduce the

amount which would otherwise

be raised through rates.

Sumner must win final round-robin matches

• By Gordon Findlater

A 17-25 loss to Burnside means

Sumner will need to win their

final two round-robin matches

to guarantee a spot in the plate

semi-finals of the premier metro

competition.

In their final home game of

the round-robin on Saturday,

Sumner stumbled out of the

blocks and found themselves

down to 14 men just 3min

into the match after lock

Max Kennedy was binned for

repeated infringements.

Burnside were able to make

the most of the man advantage

and quickly jumped out to a 0-17

lead.

“As a group we just didn’t play

well. Mentally, we weren’t exactly

on song and we gave Burnside a

bit of a running head start before

we decided to get our heads in

the game,” said Sumner coach

Martin Dodgson.

Sumner were able to get

themselves well and truly back

in the game through a penalty

try from a collapsed scrum, a try

to English halfback James Elliot

and the boot of Willy Sakura

providing two conversions and

penalty.

With 10min to play Sumner

found themselves in with a

SUMNER RUNNING club

members Lisa Brignull and

Shaun McWhirter both recorded

impressive results at the Wellington

Marathon on Sunday.

Brignull competed in the full

marathon, finishing second overall

amongst the women’s field and

first in her age bracket. Meanwhile,

McWhirter took on the half marathon

and finished 25th overall.

A time of 3hr 5min 52sec was a

new personal best on the Wellington

course for Brignall. She finished

just over three minutes behind the

women’s marathon winner Sonya

Cameron from Dunedin. Brignall

also won the women’s 40-49 age

group by more than 12min.

McWhirter’s time of 1hr 19min

58sec saw him finish 23rd in the

men’s half marathon. He also

finished seventh in the men’s 30-39

age group.

Impressive marathon results

HAUL: Lisa Brignull claimed a silver and

gold medal at the Wellington marathon

on Sunday.

Burnside won a scrum penalty

before going down the other end

and scoring a try to wrap-up the

match.

Dodgson said to play badly

until that point was a bit of a

shock.

work themselves back into the

game Dodgson says the major

concern from the game was their

lack of physical presence.

“We shouldn’t be getting

physically dominated by a

Burnside pack. Not after we

dominated the likes of Lincoln

and High School Old Boys . . .

because of that we couldn’t really

stick to our game plan,” said

Dodgson.

He says Sumner have now

made it difficult for themselves

to finish in the top two of the

bottom six – which will grant

them a plate semi-final. However,

the side still have fate in their

own hands.

While the result may not

have gone their way the

Sumner faithful were kept in

good spirits with outrageously

cheap $5 jugs of Tui beer at

the clubrooms to celebrate the

premier side’s last home game of

the season.

This Saturday Sumner take on

Linwood at Linfield Park. The

game kicks off at 2.45pm.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD

Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas and feedback as part of our first phase

of consultation as we plan for our new school.

As well as the online survey, feedback was gathered from Post-It Stations at various

school events and from student House Groups and workshops.

A Community Consultation Report is now with the design team to assist in developing

the preliminary concept design for the new school.

The key findings in the report shows our community would like a new school which:

► Reflects Marian’s Roman Catholic Special Character, values, story and history

► Is inclusive and supportive. For example, reflects and celebrates Māori, Asian and

Pasifika cultures

► Fosters Marian’s family environment and supports small class sizes

► Has designated and comfortable spaces to pray, eat, prepare, teach, learn and be

together

► Is eco-friendly and sustainable

► Has full-sized, modern facilities designed to be functional and welcoming

► Has plenty of green, leafy space.

The full report is available on the Marian College website.

SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY

This term, Marian students have filled paper bags with more than 200

non-perishable food items for Christchurch families in need.

During the July school holidays, Marian students will be working in the

Stanmore Road St Vincent de Paul shop. Please call in with your preloved

gently used clothing and household items and say hi.

Marian College has a long tradition of service. Both students and staff

members are actively involved and contribute positively to the wider

community. All students complete at least six hours of meaningful

service within the school and community, every year.

UC’S YOUNGEST FEMALE PHD

Natasha Mazey, a 23-year-old former

Marian College student, may be the

Canterbury’s almost 150-year history,

to earn a doctorate. Natasha began her

academic journey studying commerce and

digital technologies at Marian College,

which she enjoyed.

UC describes her as an ‘unstoppable force

of nature’ - congratulations Natasha on

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.”

Fastier, co lapsed and died the

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

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

Board chairman Mike Mora

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes
