Doing it for his twin sister

Nico’s race to

raise suicide

awareness

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

PARA-SWIMMER Nico

Wildbore usually has his

mind on winning in the pool.

But today the 17-year-old

will only be thinking of his

twin sister Bethany, who

tragically died of a suspected

suicide last year.

As part of World Suicide

Prevention Day, Nico is

set to swim 16km to raise

money for the Mental Health

Foundation.

He wants people to talk

about mental health and

wishes more than anything

his sister had opened up about

what she was going through.

“Obviously she had very

bad depression, she was losing

a lot of weight but she kept it

private. I didn’t really know

about it until everything

happened,” he said.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think a right-turning bay should be installed on Main South

Rd? Email your views to georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Intersection layout reconsidered

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUSINESSES frustrated by a

lack of direct access into their

shopping area may have their

concerns eased.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has

asked for its original decision to

ban vehicles from turning right

or making U-turns on Main

South Rd, opposite Harvard Ave

to be reconsidered.

RA Shearings Contractors

director Bob Shearing, DA

Lewis director Mark Lewis and

Chipmunks Playland & Cafe

Wigram business partner Dell

Lu have been calling for a rightturning

bay to be installed at the

intersection.

They made a presentation on

behalf of other businesses in the

area to the board recently asking

it to reconsider a report made by

city council staff.

A new report made by city

council staff concluded installing

a right turning bay will have

no benefit to improving the

safety of motorists.

It instead planned to improve

road-marking improvements

and re-enforce no right turn and

no U-turn movements.

City council staff were

required to look into the issue

after a petition of almost 150

signatures was collected calling

for a right-turning bay to

be constructed in the area in

February.

Following the presentation of

the report, the board asked the

no right-turn and no U-turn

sign to be reconsidered.

Mr Shearing, a former city

councillor, said he would have

liked to have seen the board a

bit more “forceful” in getting

the signs removed and a rightturning

bay installed.

But he said: “At least we are

still there and they can come

back (city council staff) and

hopefully something sensible

can be made out of the situation

and we will go back to the status

quo.”

Businesses had raised concerns

in the past that patronage

would decline due to customers

travelling into Hornby being

unable to directly access their

business.

In a presentation to the board

recently, Mr Shearing said hundreds

of vehicles need to make

right turns and U-turns somewhere

along this stretch of road.

“Prior to the installation of

the signs in January these turns

were spread between the four

intersections, however, mostly

were at the Harvard Ave intersection,”

he said.

He argued there was never a

safety issue at the Harvard Ave

intersection.

New Zealand Transport

Agency crash data one crash was

recorded at the intersection.

City council is expected to

report back to the board in the

coming weeks with the review

to take into account road safety

and the impacts on commercial

businesses.

HALSWELL PONY CLUB

The Halswell branch of the

Christchurch Pony Club plans to

construct a cross-country course

The club has requested $2000 for

the project from the Halswell-

Board.

Western News wishes to clarify,

as stated in the article, Helen

Charity shops seen as a rubbish dump

• By Laura Hitchon

PEOPLE ARE discarding

damaged goods and other

rubbish outside charity shops to

avoid paying refuse station fees.

Charity shop staff are turning

up to work on Monday mornings

to discover large piles of damaged

goods lying on their front

door step and, although some

items are saleable, many are not.

St John Opportunity Shop

volunteer Brian North said many

people dropped off the goods at

their Addington store at night

or during the weekend when the

shop was closed.

“We would prefer that people

drop off their goods during the

daytime when we are able to

inspect them.

“People think that just because

they donate something, we will

accept it but we need to be able

to sell these items and if they’re

damaged, we can’t,” he said.

Salvation Army Family Store

Hornby shop manager Terry

Murray said some people genuinely

believed the goods they

were donating were in an acceptable

condition but many people

knew the goods were rubbish

and donated them anyway.

Damaged goods being donated

included lounge suites, drawers,

mattresses, tables, chairs,

ANNOYED: Salvation Army Family Store Hornby shop manager Terry Murray

(right) and volunteer Neville Walton stand next to the overflowing rubbish skip

filled with donated goods they cannot sell.

sporting equipment, crockery,

glassware, artwork, books, clothing

and shoes.

The money generated from

selling donated goods goes back

into the charity to help people

in need, however, this was being

jeopardised by the cost of having

to dump other people’s rubbish.

Mr Murray said they emptied

their skip about three times a

week which cost them about

$140 each time.

“One of the biggest expenses

we have is taking damaged

goods to the dump.”

Mr Murray said the cost of

taking rubbish to the refuse

station was a possible cause of

people dumping their unwanted

goods at charity shops.

“Many people don’t own a

trailer and can’t afford to hire

one let alone afford to take their

rubbish to the dump, so they just

leave it on the charity’s doorstep,”

he said.

To dump one tonne of general

waste, the EcoCentral website

lists it at $253.40.

WASTE: Salvation Army staff members Leane

Robertson (left) and Karen White with dirty,

stained and faded clothing.

PHOTOS: LAURA HITCHON

Mr Murray said it would be

beneficial if the city council

collected large waste from the

charity once a month and subsidised

the dumping fees to ease

pressure.

A city council spokesperson

said they expected residents to

dispose of their unwanted items

responsibly and that people

should only make donations to

charity stores that are open, able

and willing to take their items.

The spokesperson said dumping

damaged goods at charity

bins or store fronts could be seen

as illegal dumping and could

incur a fine for the person disposing

of the litter.

“The kerbside collection

service is a standard service

funded by ratepayers and we

are unable to provide additional

services above the entitlement of

a property.”

The spokesperson said

unwanted goods could be

disposed of at one of three

EcoDrop recycling centres across

the city at a cost.

Templeton quarry

A neighbourhood for

Sections from $191,000

plan runs into major stumbling block

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

FULTON HOGAN’S plan to

open a controversial quarry in

Templeton has hit a major road

block.

But the company is confident it

can address the concerns raised

by experts over its proposed

170ha Roydon Quarry.

Environment Canterbury and

the Selwyn District Council are

recommending the application

to open the quarry is declined

unless changes are made.

Independently prepared

Section 42A reports for the two

authorities were released last

week ahead

of the quarry

hearing due

to start in

November.

of operation

and unclear

recommendation for the

application to be declined.

But Fulton Hogan South Island

general manager Craig Stewart

said he is confident any technical

concerns raised about traffic,

hours of operation and dust can

be addressed to the satisfaction

of the community and decisionmakers.

In a new development on top

of the release of the reports,

residents are unhappy some

submitters will not have a say

on the changes made last month

by Fulton Hogan to its original

application. The changes include

amending its proposal from

1500 heavy vehicle movements a

day to a daily limit of 800 heavy

vehicles.

ECan and the district council

will only accept submissions

on whether the changes to the

quarry application are significant

enough that it should be treated

as a completely new process.

All submissions are required to

be authored by legal counsel and

are due on September 17.

Only those who chose to speak

at the hearing before the changes

were made will have a chance

to do so. Quarry opponent

Simon Moore said it is “unfair”

submitters who will not speak

at the hearing will not have an

opportunity to have a say on the

changes.

But he said if ECan and

the district council are

recommending the application

be declined, it is a good outcome.

His views are backed

by Templeton Residents’

Association treasurer

Jolene Eagar, who said

the biggest item to

come out of the report

was the traffic concerns

highlighted.

As part of the

Section 42A report,

the district council’s

recommendations

were made by Andrew

Henderson from

independent engineering

consultant Beca, while Incite

resource management consultant

Hannah Goslin was contracted

by ECan.

Mr Henderson said the

application needs to have

appropriate measures to avoid

Jolene Eagar

adverse effects arising from

trucks queuing between the

main trunk railway crossing and

Main South Rd.

This is a result of Fulton

Hogan proposing to provide a

vehicle access point from Jones

Rd into the quarry, which is

adjacent to Main South Rd.

Mr Henderson’s other key

concern is all activities proposed

to occur between 8pm and

6am at the quarry need to be

removed.

Incite resource

management consultant

Hannah Goslin said she

has not been provided

with enough information

to show Fulton Hogan

can reliably reduce the

discharge of PM10 (a

major air pollutant).

“At this time, I do not

consider the applicant

is able to comply with

Regulation 17(1) of the National

Standards for Air Quality,” she

said.

Mr Stewart said Fulton Hogan

is going over the detail of expert

opinions and will be addressing

this in its evidence, ongoing

conversations and at the hearing.

Residents to

lobby council

for liquor policy

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS FIGHTING a

long battle to stop an off-licence

liquor store from opening in

Halswell have been defeated.

The Alcohol Regulatory and

Licensing Authority dismissed

an appeal by the Halswell

Residents’ Association to allow

Bottle-O Halswell to open a

store at 29 Ensign St.

In December, Bottle-O

Halswell Ltd was granted an

application to open the store, but

the decision was appealed by the

association.

Halswell Residents’ Association

secretary David Hawke said

it knew the odds were stacked

against it.

“But we still felt it was worth

giving it a go. Even though

we lost we are still glad we attempted

it,” he said.

The association will now be

working towards lobbying for

the city council to develop its

Local Alcohol Policy.

Mr Hawke had previously

said the drawn-out process has

in alcohol inspectors and

the knowledge base of agencies

and district licensing committee

Panthers fan ‘stoked’ with chopper flight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PAUL MATHESON has never

flown in a helicopter before.

But little did he know when

he liked the Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association Facebook

page he would become the

prizewinner of a free flight over

the suburb.

The association was running

a competition with the 3000th

person to like its page winning

a free flight with Christchurch

Helicopters.

That 3000th person happened

to be Mr Matheson.

The only condition was the

winner had to take photos of

Hornby while hovering in the

skies.

Mr Matheson, who is the

owner of pick-up and delivery

service Man with a Van

Christchurch, said it was an

“awesome flight” and wanted

to thank GHRA and

Christchurch Helicopters for

the opportunity.

He said said he was “pretty

stoked” as he didn’t even know

the competition was running

when he liked the page.

Mr Matheson was slightly

nervous having only ever flown

in a microlite while in Rarotonga

which was “a bit scary.”

But his nerves were put to ease

as he got to fly in a new model

of the Guimbal Cabri G2

helicopter.

He described it as a “late

birthday present” after turning

50 in June.

Mr Matheson joked it may

upset a few Hornby residents,

because he has lived in Halswell

most of his life.

His reason for liking the

Facebook page was because he

was an avid follower of rugby

league and was interested in

following the Hornby Panthers

as part of Canterbury Rugby

League’s grand final held

recently.

Big swim in memory of twin sister

•From page 1

Nico decided to swim the

gruelling distance to mark his

sister being 16-years-old at the

time of her death.

For the past three years,

Nico has been training at the

Waitaha Swim Club, based at

the Canterbury Swim School in

Hornby, where the swim will be

held today.

Nico’s mother Keiran Horne

said Bethany, who attended

Hagley Community College,

struggled following the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

She was located at Redcliffs

School at the time of the quake.

“You could imagine it was

pretty traumatic with the cliffs

coming down so for years after

Beth had trouble sleeping.

“She had been seeing a

psychologist for sometime, she

had been working on strategies to

keep on an even keel. Then about

a month before she died she just

went on a downward spiral.”

Ms Horne said she is

immensely proud of Nico, who

came up with the idea of the

swim and organised the event

himself.

She said Bethany had a

beautiful soul and was loved by

many, but a lot of people didn’t

realise the struggles she was

ENDURANCE: Nico Wildbore is set to swim 16km today to raise awareness about the stigma

attached to talking about mental health and suicide.

going through.

Ms Horne said there needs to

be more education and talk about

dealing mental health issues.

“I have always been a really

open communicator with my

children, but when we had to

start to deal with issues around

mental health I actually really

struggled to know how to talk

about it in the best way.”

The distance of the swim is a

difficult undertaking for anyone,

but especially for Nico.

He was born with a type of

cerebral palsy called hemiplegia,

which means Nico has limited

mobility in his right arm and leg.

But Nico, who is transgender, is

a high achiever. Last year he was

named the best para-swimmer

at the Canterbury secondary

swimming championships. One

of his big goals is to make it to the

Paralympics and pave the way for

other transgender people to do

the same.

Since his sister’s death, Nico

said he has been coping as well as

he can, but is taking it one day at

a time.

The spotlight is on mental

health issues which are at an alltime

high in Canterbury.

Police statistics showed 4369

attempted suicide events in

Canterbury were reported in

2018, up 59 per cent from 2015.

Ms Horne said she wants

people who may be feeling the

way her daughter did to know

there is always hope.

WHERE TO GET HELP:

If you are worried about

your own or someone else’s

mental health, visit your

GP or local mental health

provider. However, if you or

someone else is in danger

or endangering others, call

police immediately on 111.

PopCoin was named the

winner of the Canterbury

Young Enterprise Product

launch recently, which was

sponsored by Ara Institute of

Canterbury.

The business, which creates

freshly flavoured popcorn was

founded by year 13 students

– Riccarton’s Eileen Prasad

and Arnie Ferreras, New

Brighton’s Tara Blackmore

and Redcliff’s Meghan Kerr.

The idea was formed

after the students took part

in the national Young Enterprise

scheme – a programme

aimed to inspire young people

to become involved in business.

As part of the scheme, their

challenge was to create a business

idea. The students were

debating between a salad bowl

or popcorn.

After undertaking research,

the students found there was a

demand for popcorn.

The students receive full

profit from the business and

months it has been running

stalls for.

They run stalls at ARA, New

Brighton Seaside Market, The

Riccarton Sunday Market and

will be selling at Turanga on

September 15.

The flavours the students

have created include savoury

herb and cheese, salted caramel,

chocolate popcorn and

caramel banana.

“We as a group have got a lot

of interest in making food so

we used our own knowledge

and came up with the flavours,”

Eileen said.

Eileen, the mastermind

behind the flavours, was last

year’s winner of the National

Secondary School Culinary

Challenge.

She is hoping to go into the

hospitality industry either as a

chef or management position

or study business at Canterbury

University.

Each student plays an

business with Arnie as the

Social studies teacher Richard

Jolly said the product has

been so well-crafted they have

sold out every time they have

gone to market.

The quirky name for the

business emerged after the

students were joking around

about the term “popcoin”

which featured in a children’s

Chorus bound for New Orleans

• By Claire Booker

SINGERS IN the Christchurch

City Chorus are packing their

bags and warming up their

voices for the Sweet Adelines

World Championship in New

Orleans.

The group was founded in

1985 and the women sing in a

four-part harmony a capella

style and have been national

champions 11 times – but this

time they are back representing

the country on an international

stage.

The last time the group performed

internationally was 2016

in Las Vegas where they placed

fifth and received the “most

entertaining” award.

The chorus is made up of 130

women from across Christchurch,

with members also

hailing from Nelson, Dunedin,

Invercargill, Palmerston North,

Auckland and Australia.

Ellie Sutton, of Cashmere, is

one of the chorus members and

said she is fizzing in anticipation

of her first international contest.

“We and our families have

willingly sacrificed so much to

get the fabulous Christchurch

City Chorus to this point. New

Orleans is the pinnacle of the

journey we have taken together

over the last couple of years and

I can’t wait to show the rest of

the SAI world what we can do,”

she said.

Papanui’s Nicky McCaughan

is the group’s visual director,

and she is in charge of the choreography

and showmanship of

the chorus.

The chorus will fly to New

Orleans this week, and the

competition will run from September

16 to 21.

Redwood resident Sharyn

Glassey is excited and feels

“blessed” to be a part of the

chorus.

“Never in my wildest dreams

did I ever think I would be representing

our beautiful country

in an international competition,”

she said.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the chorus

is excited for the thrill of

representing New Zealand on

the international stage.

“It has taken three solid years

of learning and performing

songs to reach this pinnacle

time. The chorus’ aim is to better

our fifth placing in Las Vegas

the last time we represented

New Zealand in 2016,” she said.

“It is exciting, extremely

focused, intensely pleasurable

work, right up until the moment

on stage when they announce:

‘We are ready for our next

contestant, from Christchurch,

New Zealand, under the

direction of Virginia Humphrey-

Taylor, the Christchurch City

Chorus,’ I live for this moment

in my life,” Ms Humphrey-

Taylor said.

MUSIC: Villa Maria College’s Con Brio has won a coveted silver award at The Big Sing Finale. ​

Silver award for Villa singers

VILLA MARIA College’s largest

choir, Con Brio, has won a

coveted silver award at The Big

Sing Finale.

The Big Sing is a nationwide

choral competition, hosted

by the New Zealand Choral

Federation.

It sees New Zealand’s

secondary school choirs compete

in regional contests, before a list

of the best of the best is released.

Those choirs are then invited

to the televised national finale in

search of gold, silver and bronze

medals.

Twenty-four choirs were selected

for the finale.

The finale was held in

Dunedin and culminated in a

gala concert.

Con Brio is made up of 53

girls from year 10 to year 13,

who share a love of singing and

performing.

“I am enormously proud of the

girls, they work incredibly hard

throughout the year, and they

just keep getting better,” said

choral director Naomi Hnat.

“The girls hold themselves to

a very high standard and stretch

themselves to continue to grow

as a group. Some of the girls are

more experienced than others,

and it’s a pleasure to watch those

students help to lead the group.”

Ms Hnat said performing

alongside other talented choirs

from all around New Zealand is

very special.

“This year there were only

four choirs from Canterbury

selected for the finale, so we feel

proud to be among the best in

the region, and now we can say

we are among the best in the

country.”

• By Claire Booker

THE SEARCH for New

Zealand’s top outdoor spot has

been won by three Christchurch

children.

And one of those winners was

Waimairi School year 6 pupil

Lauren Hickmott.

Lauren (right) won the art

prize for her silhouette called

Alone, which showcases the sense

of solitude which comes from

camping beneath the night sky.

The annual competition is

run by the Walking Access

Commission, and entries were

received from all over New

Zealand.

Pupils entered a photo,

drawing, poem or short story

relating to their favourite spot to

win a prize pack.

The competition aims to help

teach children to understand

responsible outdoor behaviour.

The photo competition was

won by Breens Intermediate year

7 pupil Taylor Blackbourn, who

entered a photo of the Te Paki

sand dunes in Cape Reinga.

Heathcote Valley School year

6 pupil Matilda Scofield won the

writing prize with her bilingual

poem Sumner Pohutukawa.

Matilda wrote the poem at

her Write on School for Young

Writers class. Her prize will be

WINNERS: CGHS beat Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate to win the South

Island Secondary Schools netball tournament final for the first time in

51 years on Thursday.

CGHS win netball title, Villa Maria third

• By Claire Booker

CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High

have won the South Island

Secondary Schools netball

competition for the first time in

51 years.

CGHS beat Dunedin’s St

Hilda’s Collegiate 29-27 in a

nail-biting final which went into

extra time at Saxton Stadium in

Nelson on Thursday.

Both teams now head to the

nationals next month.

CGHS stayed either level or

in front throughout the A grade

final.

It was 9-9 after the first quarter

and 12-12 at half-time until

CGHS nudged ahead by two

goals after the third quarter.

At full-time, the teams were

level again 26-26. In overtime,

it see-sawed again as both sides

fought hard for the two-goal

advantage needed to take the

title.

South Island Secondary

Schools Netball Association

chairwoman Maggie Lloyd

SPORT

described the game as

“fabulous.”

“There was outstanding

defence all throughout the court.

The crowd swung from wanting

one team to win to another team

to win,” she said.

Lloyd said CGHS goal shoot,

Olivia McIntyre was “amazing”.

CGHS co-captains Charlotte

Knight and Shana Ali were

named the talented players of the

tournament.

Lloyd said the reason for the

low scoring final was because

St Hilda’s played a patient game

and looked to control the ball.

The standard had improved

compared to previous years, she

said.

CGHS went into the

tournament ranked third, two

places ahead of St Hilda’s.

CGHS beat Ashburton College

34-21 in the semi-final, and

St Hilda’s knocked reigning

champions Villa Maria College

out of the running in the other

semi.

Villa beat Ashburton 39-30 for

third, while St Margaret’s beat St

Andrew’s College for fifth spot,

36-34.

CGHS, St Hilda’s, Villa

Maria, Ashburton College

and St Margaret’s qualified for

the New Zealand Secondary

Schools tournament in Nelson in

October.

Tasty Bites

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

WESTERN NEWS

Exotic food with the least hassle

If you are going to cook

for a large dinner party,

organisation and preparation

are key, starting with

working out a menu well

ahead of the event. Try

including this tasty Asianinfluenced

starter to your

list

Tamarind chilli crispy-skin

salmon with green mango

herb salad

Serves 4

Ingredients

600g salmon fillets, cut into 4cm

cubes, patted dry with paper

towels

Sea salt

Fresh cracked black pepper

Crispy shallots

Oil

Tamarind chilli dressing

5-10g large dried red chillies

2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced in

a mortar and pestle with a pinch

of salt

5g belacan (shrimp paste)

65g gula melaka, shaved

25g tamarind pulp, soaked in

150ml

hot water, rendered and sieved

1½ Tbsp lemon juice

2 large kaffir lime leaves, finely

julienned

Green mango herb salad

½ telegraph cucumber or one

lebanese cucumber, unpeeled,

shaved into ribbons

1 green mango, peeled, shaved

into ribbons

1 small bunch coriander leaves

1 small bunch Thai basil leaves

2 wing beans, finely sliced

Squeeze of lemon juice

Pinch of sugar

Olive oil

Directions

Season the fish with salt and

pepper and a drizzle of oil.

Place the soaked dried chillies

and garlic in a food processor

and blend until a fine paste.

Heat two tablespoons of oil in

a small saucepan over medium

heat, add the shrimp paste and

mash with a wooden spatula.

Cook for 1min until the shrimp

paste becomes fragrant and

starts to toast.

Add the chilli garlic paste

and continue to cook, stirring

frequently, until fragrant.

Add the gula melaka and cook

until dark, glossy and sticky.

Slowly pour in the tamarind

puree. Cook until slightly

thickened, then stir in the lemon

juice and sprinkle on the kaffir

lime leaves. Remove from heat

and set aside.

Heat a non-stick fry pan over

high heat. Place the fish pieces

skin side down evenly around

the pan and cook until crisp and

golden.

To ensure that the skin is

evenly crispy, you may need to

gently press with a spatula to

keep the skin flat on the pan.

Turn over, and cook the other

side until three-quarter cooked.

Pour over the tamarind chilli

sauce and toss very gently to just

coat. Be careful not to break up

the fish pieces.

Combine the salad ingredients,

and dress with lemon juice,

sugar and olive oil just before

serving.

Transfer the fish to a serving

plate along with all the sauce

and top with the green mango,

cucumber and herb salad.

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and

serve immediately.

Note: Adjust the quantity

of the large, red dried chillies

according to your taste. Also,

leave the seeds in if you like

the dish extra spicy, otherwise,

deseed them.

In any case, soak the chillies in

hot water until softened before

using them.

REAL ESTATE

Private, peaceful

Purau rural retreat

52 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $850,000 plus GST if any

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 living rooms | 13ha | Listing Number: 9736

Seldom do properties such as this come

to the market but retiring vendors of 30

years have decided the time has come.

This is a wonderful location, peaceful

and private with wonderful bird song. Set

on 13.1369 hectares or 32.5 acres approx.

this charming 100m 2 home is both easycare

and warm. Commanding beautiful

views of the Purau Valley, Purau Bay and

Mt Evans, if you are looking for peace and

privacy then this one could be for you.

Set well off the road the house has

two double bedrooms, two living areas,

lovely decking and one bathroom. North

East facing and sheltered with a garage/

workshop adjacent to the house. The

garden is easy care and the land is a

mixture of pasture in five paddocks for

grazing, some bush and about 250 approx.

30 year old pine trees ready for harvesting.

The property is well fenced and has an

excellent water supply, a small stream and

a natural pond. Further down the driveway

there is a set of yards, a four bay implement

shed, a tractor shed with high stud and a

large high stud workshop with three phase

power. There is also a semi derelict house

from about the 1930s on the property.

This is an idyllic location and perfect for

a retiring farmer, someone wanting to get

into the firewood business or someone with

a portable mill to make use of all the trees.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a

highly desirable destination as it is so

useable being close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by such

a safe swimming beach are defying all the

odds and selling fast generally as they come

up very seldom.

Excellent swimming, boating, walking

and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick

and easy access to Lyttelton via the

Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. five

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this

a fun filled place to visit. Properties here

make an excellent investment and Purau

Bay and valley is a truly magical place to

live.

Estate (Licensed Agent REAA 2008),
