interest

in port

patrol

• By Jess Gibson

LYTTELTON residents have been

complaining about crime and a

lack of police presence.

But only seven people have put

their hand up to volunteer for a

community patrol team, aimed

at keeping an eye on the port and

harbour areas when the police

are not there at night and in the

weekends.

A community meeting with

police and more than 80 residents

was held to discuss the ongoing

concerns people have with crime

including vehicle theft and

damage.

A solution was to have one of

the City to Sumner Community

Watch vehicles patrolling

Lyttelton.

But the plan is on hold because

of the lack of response from

residents.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board candidate Reuben

Davidson, who has been pushing

to get volunteers, hosted a dropin

meeting for the patrol on

Saturday.

from the editor’s desk

THERE HAS been a lot of drum-beating

about crime in Lyttelton on social media.

Posters say there should be more police

presence, particularly after 5pm and at the

weekends when there appears to be little.

The publicity promoted a private

security firm to start patrols when police are not about.

A community meeting was held where police said the

perception there was a lot of crime in Lyttelton and the bay

areas was not a true picture.

A plan was put in place to designate a community patrol

vehicle to Lyttelton. But community patrols need volunteers.

Today (page 1) we reveal only seven people have put their

hand up. That’s not enough to run the vehicle.

Time for some of the people who have been complaining to

step up.

$23k crime cameras for Sumner

• By Jess Gibson

A GROUP of Sumner residents

have finally won the battle to

get crime prevention cameras

installed in the village.

The city council has confirmed

it will fund the $23,000

installation of five cameras

on the corner of Mariner and

Burgess Sts before the end of the

year.

Safer

Sumner started

advocating for

the equipment in

December 2017

after a spike in

crime.

The group’s

Kath

Preston

RATE INCREASES ARE NOT SUSTAINABLE

þ Rates are projected to rise by more than 52% by 2028.

Over the last three years, average rate rises have hit 5.25%.

And that’s not factoring in the compounding effect of those

increases.

þ

þ

þ

spokeswoman

Kath Preston

said it is “rapt”

to have closure after what has

been a “very long and confusing

process.”

“We’re very excited about it.

It’s taken a lot of perseverance,

but all we wanted was this

result,” she said.

Safer Sumner raised $4000

for the security cameras in 2017,

but was told to approach the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board for funding

when the cost jumped to

$20,000 after police requested

the cameras be aligned with its

system.

REPAIR THE ROADS AND FOOTPATHS

Eight years on from the quakes we still have endless

roadworks, questionable sewage systems and fresh

water that is compromised.

I SUPPORT AN INTEGRATED WATER STRATEGY

Water supply, waste water, storm water and water infrastructure

are critically important. Our waterways and coastal water form a

major part of the landscape and lives of the community.

A CHANGE OF CULTURE IS REQUIRED

Ratepayers want transparency and accountability without

resorting to Official Information Act procedures. The Council

has been branded as “the most secretive in the country.”

WATCHING: Crime cameras will be installed in Sumner after

a community group started advocating for them in December

2017.

However, there was

confusion when a report in July

recommended the community

board decline the group’s

application for $16,187 to help

pay for the cameras.

The report was then pulled

from the board agenda at the

“last minute” before its meeting

due to Safer Sumner’s difficulty

meeting the criteria within the

application.

Now city council head

of community support,

partnerships and governance

John Filsell said after discussions

with police, the decision to fund

the cameras was delegated to

city council staff.

The equipment, which

aligns with the police system,

will include four static cameras

and one camera able to pan

360 degrees with zooming

capability.

Mr Filsell said the location

Community board member

Darrell Latham,

who has been

pushing for the

crime cameras,

is “thrilled”

they will now be

installed.

“Gaining

approval has

CITY ACCESS, PARKING AND CONGESTION

A smart city is an accessible city. The Council must listen

In Brief

SCHOOL LOCKDOWN

Bamford School in Woolston

was put in lockdown after a

life-threatening incident at a

neighbouring property last

Wednesday. Gould Cres was

cordoned off and the school was

put in lockdown about 3pm.

Parents picking up their children

were made to wait outside the

cordon. A police spokeswoman

said there was a large police

presence at the address, including

the armed offenders squad. The

lockdown was lifted at about 5pm.

TSUNAMI SIRENS

The tsunami warning sirens went

off along the coastline between

Brooklands and Taylors Mistake

on Sunday at 11am as part of a

biannual exercise to check they

are operating correctly. City

council head of Civil Defence

and emergency management Rob

Orchard said the routine tests

provided a reminder to people in

coastal and riverside areas that

they should have an evacuation

plan in place.

CASS BAY TOILET BLOCK

Last week Bay Harbour News

published an article stating a new

two cubicle toilet building will be

installed at Cass Bay. However,

the building will actually have

three cubicles. Construction

on the toilet block will begin in

December and is expected to be

complete by about May next year.

Developing future lifeguards

•From page 1

“It is a very dangerous spot that

often looks wrongly calm and

safe to members of the public.”

The rescue took about 5min,

and Miss Suter said the woman

was fine once she was returned to

the beach.

Now the 25-year-old has been

recognised for helping other

young lifeguards undertake their

first rescues. She was named

instructor of the year at the Surf

Life Saving New Zealand Awards

of Excellence.

Miss Suter said she was humbled

to receive the award at Te

Papa in Wellington.

“There are a lot of volunteers

in this organisation that put so

much time and energy into it to

make it what it is. I wouldn’t be

able to do the instructing that

I do without their support and

help,” she said.

Miss Suter is the head

instructor and club captain in

Sumner, where she organises and

runs courses on lifeguarding,

rock rescues and inflatable boat

driving.

She also leads the Canterbury

lifeguard exams and has

instructed at the Surf Life Saving

New Zealand National Lifeguard

School.

“For me, surf lifesaving, it is a

way to not only give back to the

community and keep Kiwis safe

on our coastlines, but I also enjoy

being able to help develop future

lifeguards and leaders in our

community,” Miss Suter said.

“It is awesome and very

rewarding to see them develop

and step up to instruct and lead

our patrols to keep our beaches

safe. Surf lifesaving has given me

a lot of opportunities and friends

for life that I am very thankful

for.”

Awards were also presented to

New Zealand’s top surf lifeguard,

lifesaving volunteer and the

lifeguards responsible for the

rescue of the year.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand

senior executive Matt Warren

said the awards celebrated the

“heroism, commitment and

skills of people throughout the

country who dedicate their

time and effort to volunteering,

and keeping Kiwis safe on our

beaches.”

There are 74 surf lifesaving

clubs throughout New Zealand –

and all are run by volunteers.

“Surf Life Saving New

Zealand’s volunteers have had

another huge year,” Mr Warren

said.

“The skill level of our people

was on show again this season

with great rescues, sporting feats

and administrative excellence.”

More volunteers needed

for community patrol

•From page 1

It was attended by nine people,

including City to Sumner Patrol

secretary Kathy Bessant and

former chairman Allan Bain.

“Everybody is busy, so it can

seem difficult for people to

commit to the patrol . . . but it

is a small commitment and it

doesn’t have to be hard work,” Mr

Davidson said.

Mr Davidson said at least six

more volunteers were needed

if the plan to have a designated

community patrol vehicle in

Lyttelton was to proceed.

The car is staffed by two

volunteers each time they go out

on patrol.

Volunteers must be over 25

with a licence and would have to

complete a standard police check

and basic training.

Mrs Bessant said if the car was

housed in Lyttelton, people would

just have to pick it up, patrol for

three or four hours and return it.

She said as a Lyttelton resident,

she does not think people should

have to come in from the city to

patrol in the area.

“Really, we’ve got to do it

ourselves,” she said.

She said residents should still

continue to protect themselves

from crime by locking up their

cars and properties to deter

offenders.

PROSPECT: Banks Peninsula

Community Board candidate

Reuben Davidson has been

pushing to get volunteers so

that one of City to Sumner

Community Patrol’s cars can

be housed in Lyttelton. ​

Senior Sergeant Roy Appley

said he was not disappointed

at the lack of numbers as

“volunteers are volunteers.”

“We would be lucky to have

volunteers of any type and any

number,” he said.

Meanwhile, private security

company Tactical Response Team

has been voluntarily heading out

at night since August in response

to residents’ concerns over crime.

Operations director Shannon

Mudge said it was good news that

a community patrol was in the

works.

to the upgrades.

He said the business was as

“People were sitting on the

and people were actually just

walking around – it was epic.”

Repairs to start

on Akaroa wharf

AKAROA’S AGEING wharf will

undergo repairs over the next few

weeks.

The work will involve fixing

broken piles and replacing some

of the wharf’s support structures.

Some of the capping and deck

beams which are in poor condition

will also be replaced.

“A condition assessment of the

wharf last year revealed a number

of issues with it and long-term

it will need to be

replaced,’’ city

council head of

parks Andrew

Rutledge said.

“We are currently

engaging with

the community

on options for a

new wharf, but in the meantime,

we need to do some repairs on the

existing wharf.’’

Work is expected to start in

mid-October and should take

about three weeks. The contractor

will not be working on the

wharf over weekends or on days

when there are cruise ships in the

harbour. “The work should cause

minimal disruption to wharfusers

as most of the repairs are

focused on the below-deck,’’ Mr

Rutledge said.

The city council plans to seek

community feedback on a concept

design for a new wharf next year.

Youths aim

to create a

healthy river

YOUNG PEOPLE from schools

and early learning centres are

being asked to take action to

create a healthy Heathcote River.

The pilot project is a collaborative

community approach to

conservation education which

aims to connect students along

the river.

City council parks programmes

and partnerships manager Kate

Russell said the project aims to

establish a blueprint for student

action to power environmental

change within the river.

“We are looking to these young

people as the protectors of their

local river environment and hope

to expand this approach further

afield,” Ms Russell said.

Supported by city council education

co-ordinator Sally Airey,

the project encourages young

people to take “guardianship” of

the river.

“We are inviting young people

to lead community action to help

create a healthy awa [river].

Ms Airey, whose role is being

funded by the Department of

Conservation, said the initial

project title – Healthy Ōpāwaho

– expresses the “connection

between a healthy river and a

healthy community.”

GIVEN TIME, even the most

ordinary photo can be an

extraordinary window into a

different world.

This photo, picturing the intersection

of High, Hereford and

Colombo Sts, was a highly commended

entry in Christchurch

City Libraries’ 2008 photo hunt.

It was submitted by Tony Bowie

and shows his mother and

grandmother on their way to

shop in High St in the late 1950s.

During the 1950s, the central

city was the prime destination

for shopping in Christchurch,

and women would don hats and

gloves for their trip into town.

The central city enjoyed this

shopping heyday in the first half

of the 20th-century, coinciding

with the peak of reliance on

public transport – first trams,

then buses. Cathedral Square

was the central hub of the city’s

transport network, which connected

the suburbs to the city

centre.

It was customary for people

to go into town to shop, and to

“take tea” in the tea rooms of

the major department stores

located on both sides of Cathedral

Square.

Trail runners hit the hills

HUNDREDS OF trail

runners will converge on

the Port Hills or the Crater

Rim Ultra event.

Entrants, including elite

competitors from across

New Zealand and overseas,

will take part in a variety of

courses on October 13.

The 53km race starts at

Diamond Harbour and

heads up Mt Herbert before

descending through the

Packhorse Hut and across

private farmland.

Competitors will then

run through the Christchurch

Adventure Park and

Crater Rim trail to finish in

Hansen Park, Opawa.

The race doubles as the

Athletics New Zealand

and Oceania trail running

championships.

Last year, runners came

from 12 countries.

The 30km, 22km, and

10km events all run on the

Crater Rim trail, with the

30km also crossing private

farmland.

Among the top entrants

in the 53km race are Vajin

Armstrong, who recently

returned from racing in

Africa and America, last

year’s podium finisher Otto

Schumacher, and Hayden

Zervos, winner of last

year’s 30km race.

HARD YARDS: Competitors from New Zealand and

overseas can take part in either a 53km, 30km, 22km,

or 10km race at the Crater Rim Ultra event. ​

The women’s field

includes Rose Pearson

and Nory Lansing, both

top-five place-getters last

year, and Mel Aitken, who

competed for New Zealand

in the world trail running

championships in Portugal

this year.

Race director Jamie

Hawker said the event,

organised by the Port Hills

Athletic Club, welcomes

everyone from the weekend

warrior to elites from New

Zealand, Australia and

around the Pacific.

“Every race has a tail-end

Charlie so no one is ever

on their own and there will

be close on 100 marshals to

help guide runners safely

out over the four courses.

“Our sponsors are local

businesses, and our volunteers

are individuals and

groups such as Odyssey

House and Achilles NZ,

a running and walking

group set up by the Blind

Foundation, as well as our

loyal club members.”

Mr Hawker said the

Port Hills are suited to offroad

racing and are a big

reason for the increasing

popularity of the Crater

Rim Ultra.

“We have a unique event

that embraces local trails

A $15,000 donation to the

Christchurch City Mission

will change the lives of 12

Cantabrians.

Last week, Smiths City’s

Colombo St store manager,

Kevin Owers presented the

cheque to mission chief

executive Matthew Mark.

Mr Mark said the mission has

to raise $5.5 million each year to

cover the cost of the services it

offers to people in need.

“This $15,000 cheque will

support 12 people through an

alcohol and drug detox. It is an

incredibly generous donation,”

he said.

Each year, the mission

supports about 42 thousand

HELPING:

Smiths City donates

$15k to city mission

Christchurch residents in need.

It celebrated its 90th

anniversary in July.

“Almost 10 per cent of

Christchurch’s population has

been supported by the city

mission,” Mr Mark said.

Store manager Kevin Owers

said he was “very proud” to

make the presentation.

“I couldn’t think of anyone

better to give it to. It gives you

tingles,” he said.

Smiths City chief executive

Roy Campbell said the company

has been a supporter of the

mission for many years.

“It doesn’t matter where we

are in New Zealand, we want to

be those locals who help locals.

It makes us immensely proud,”

he said.

Mt Pleasant School pupil

inspired by Antarctic experience

MT PLEASANT School pupil

Holly Sawyer has had a taste

of Antarctica, in what was the

first Young Inspiring Explorers’

Summit.

Holly, 11, was one of 20 school

children selected from hundreds

of applicants from around the

country to take part in the

Christchurch event on September

21 and 22.

Students spent the weekend

with the Antarctic Heritage

Trust and Kiwi explorer William

Pike, who lost his leg in the 2007

Mt Ruapehu eruption.

Young explorers stepped outside

their comfort zone, camping

out overnight, meeting huskies

and penguins and learning about

the inspiring stories of the great

Antarctic explorers, including

Ernest Shackleton and Sir Edmund

Hillary.

“It was a once in a lifetime

experience. There are no words

to describe it,” Holly said.

Interacting with huskies and

getting to harness one of the rescue

dogs up for a 5km walk was a

real highlight for Holly – as was

learning how to pitch a tent.

“When we tried putting up our

tents it was tricky because none

of us had ever done it before. We

had no idea what to do but in the

end it looked like a tent and it

stayed up, so we must have done

something right.”

Holly is now using the information

she learnt on the summit

to do her bit in protecting the

planet.

“I would really like to make

my carbon footprint smaller so I

will be doing less driving, not

using as much electricity and

reducing food wastage.”

The trust, in partnership with

the William Pike Challenge,

hosted the summit.

Mr Pike said it was incredible

to give Kiwi kids an opportunity

to learn more about the history

of Antarctica, its wildlife, science

and importance to the world

today.

INFLUENTIAL:

Explorer William

Pike showed Holly

Sawyer a glimpse

of Antarctica at the

Young Inspiring

Explorers’ Summit.

He says all young people

deserve a future where they

succeed in life, no matter what

unexpected challenges and obstacles

come their way.

“To be prepared for what life

throws at us, we need a bank of

experiences under our belt, and

that’s what the summit is all

about,” Mr Pike said.

Having completed the summit,

the students will become

members of the Antarctic Heritage

Trust’s alumni programme,

which includes inspiring explorers

such as William Pike, Brando

Yelavich and many others.

The summit was supported by

Christchurch NZ, The Antarctic

Office and the International

Antarctic Centre.

Julian Cross responds

to an article about the

temporary speed controls

on Sumner Rd being made

permanent

I LIVE ON Sumner Rd and

was annoyed to learn the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

have decided on this, as I was

told by a roading engineer

when it first reopened that they

would have consultation with

the affected residents before a

final decision was made – this

did not happen. In short, they

have changed the parking from

outside 18 and 22 Sumner

Rd to the opposite side of the

road – in spite of parking being

outside our houses for many

decades without incidence.

Any passengers in our vehicles

now have to alight into a big

wide ditch. How the elderly are

supposed to do this, I’m not sure.

It is not even possible when it is

raining heavily. This ditch needs

covering properly to even make

it safe. Perhaps a newly-elected

and different community board

could consider this a priority, if

not common sense.

John Broughton responds

an article about planter

boxes being stolen from

properties in Woolston

I HAD A largish, heavy

concrete statuette stolen from

my property in Silvester St,

Woolston, last year, which was at

the time when some other thefts

were being commonly reported.

My statuette was of a woman

and two children, and was sitting

on a heavy concrete plinth at

the end of my driveway, totally

visible from the street. This

plinth and statuette had been

in that same place for 13 years.

The plinth was not stolen. Both

the plinth and statuette would

have required two people to lift

and carry as they were heavy.

This theft occurred overnight.

Unfortunately, I have not been

able to find the same statuette

in Christchurch, so it was quite

an expensive loss. It would be

great if the police were more

active and were able to piece

these thefts together as they are

possibly carried out by one party.

Dawn Sutton responds to

last week’s article about

a failed plan to have an

alcohol-free cafe built on

the former Godley House

site

SLOWER:

The Banks

Peninsula

Community

Board

approved

a move to

make the

temporary

speed

controls on

Sumner Rd

permanent.

I SUBMITTED for the Godley

House site. I said we needed

another version of Godley House

that was a café, bar, meeting

rooms and function rooms –

something in context to the old

building.

It would provide much-needed

local employment, not just at

the venue, but for other locals

like a florist, make-up and hair

artists, photographers etc, as the

venue would be used for many

purposes like weddings, family

functions and local community

events.

In addition, it would be a

destination for those on the

soon-to-arrive cruise ships to

visit if they just wanted to do a

local trip rather than go out on

one of the day-long trips that

often leave the cruise ships when

in port.

It would return the heart back

into the community as that

is what many viewed Godley

House before it was destroyed by

the earthquakes.

Boating questions – just ask

Navigation safety officer

Gary Manch encourages

readers to send him their

questions

I HOPE YOU are all ready for

summer. I certainly am – winter

is not my favourite time of year,

that’s for sure.

As you know, I write a regular

column for Bay Harbour News

and try to ensure the content is

interesting for all boaties. I regularly

ask for any comments from

you in relation to questions about

boating, but to date, I have not

had one. From this, I guess I can

take you are all up-to-date with

the Navigation Safety Bylaw 2016,

the relevant parts of the Maritime

Transport Act 1994, and any

other boating queries.

This surprises me because when

we are out on the water and speak

to people about the rules and how

they have broken them, they almost

always say “sorry, I was not

aware” or “I did not know.”

One thing I do know is if you

don’t ask, you will never know,

so don’t be afraid to flick me an

If you have a boating

question, email

gary.manch@ecan.govt.nz

email with any queries or issues

you have – about boating, of

course.

If there is a common theme, I

can answer them in this column.

I can assure you I will reply with

the advice you seek and if I am

not sure of the answer, it will be

my job to find out and get back

to you.

We find that education is the

best way to ensure compliance

with the boating safety rules,

so don’t be afraid to ask me, the

Coastguard, or someone who has

boating knowledge.

That’s it from me this month.

Remember, lifejackets that

are sitting on the floor of the

boat don’t save lives – wearing

them does. This simple fact only

hits home when someone has

drowned. It’s too late then to say

“I wish I had.” Catch you next

month and hopefully, I will be

busy answering the questions you

send in.

A new way of thinking

for retaining walls

ADVERToRIAl

HMR Transport and Excavation have

launched to Canterbury the globally

popular Flex MSE® retaining wall system

that eliminates the need for deep driven

piles and concrete supports.

The Director of HMR, Carlton Everest says the

Flex MSE® system is an exciting alternative

to conventional retaining walls as they are

completely natural looking and require minimal

levelling or subgrade embedment. ‘It’s exciting

to be able to offer an eco-friendly and cost

effective solution for residential or agricultural

environments that look amazing’.

HMR are the accredited installers for Flex

MSE® Vegetated Wall Systems in Canterbury

which is family owned business, operated by

Carlton and Sarah Everest. ‘We work in the

wider Canterbury Area and Banks Peninsula

with a range of services on offer from general

excavation services through to retaining wall

systems. We provide solutions and services

to our clients that will take care of their needs

for the long run. We have completed many

projects to date with great feedback with

customers who love the end result’.

Carlton believes The Flex MSE® retaining

wall system will become a leading solution

throughout Canterbury as it has very high

settlement tolerance. ‘It weathers events that

can do severe damage to other systems, and

only gets stronger and greener as time goes

on’.

Being a proprietary Geobag system, it uses

the same globally accepted principles of

Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) that

builders rely on for making large scale retaining

walls. As it is made from a unique soft building

material, the system eliminates the need

for specialised equipment, cranes, footings

or reinforcing, making it cost effective and

sustainable. Flex MSE® can also be engineered

for large scale construction use.

If it’s time to upgrade, or if you’re planning for

a new retaining wall, the Flex MSE system is

a green and sustainable retaining solution.

consultation.

Facing her fear of deer

SO A COUPLE of week’s

ago I theorised that Vittoria’s

experience of hand-feeding a

kangaroo in Australia would

mean she would no longer be

scared to feed the deer or other

larger animals at Willowbank.

And I was right. Mostly.

I finally got around to taking

Vittoria back to Willowbank

this week (getting the most out

of that annual pass) and made

sure to grab some animal food

on the way into test the theory.

Confidence swelled as she

got keen enough to “borrow”

some bird food from a passerby

to throw at a duck near

the entrance. Not that ducks

were scary for her before, but

it’s like she’s feeding an animal

right?

The first obstacle to my

experiment was the fact that

the deer were hiding in the far

corner of their enclosure. Calling

them over also drew in the

second obstacle – more ducks.

A pair of the brazen little

beggers initially shied Vittoria

away from feeding the deer as

they sniffed about for a bit of

the food as well. But they gave

up soon enough and thankfully

Vittoria maintained her

composure.

I handed her some food pellets,

encouraged her towards

the fence. She reached out and

didn’t even shy or flinch as a

deer moved in for a nibble.

As its lips rubbed on her

hand she let out a giggle of joy

and reached for more food.

Her enthusiasm was limited

to the deer, however. After a

half-hearted attempt at throwing

some food at a kunekune,

the prospect of feeding a donkey

was a bridge too far.

By the time we got to the

wee sheep (animals she had

managed to feed once before

on a particularly brave day)

she was content to just munch

on some corn snacks and

VITTORIA

& Matt

Still Pedalling!

BRAVE:

Picture

proof that

watch me feed them.

So ended Vittoria’s animal

feeding fun for the day.

Might not have lasted long,

but it was pretty cool seeing

her over the fear of docile

animals. She also repeatedly

shushed a bolshy rooster so

she could concentrate on

lunch, so she was defintely top

of my cool list for the day.

Coffee mugs

for a

good cause

A GROUP of Sumner mothers

has teamed up with well-known

potter Tatyanna Meharry to

create “Mummy Mugs.”

The ceramic coffee mugs,

which are made with sand from

Sumner Beach, go towards

supporting mothers across

the country battling postnatal

depression.

Designer and mother of two

Kat Gee said the group is on

a mission to encourage other

mums to take five minutes a day

to relax, press pause and take a

moment to “enjoy a cuppa.”

“With one-in-five mums

experiencing postnatal depression

it is a very worthy cause to

support,” she said.

“We are proud to align with

Plunket and support their efforts

to be there for mums when

they feel depressed or anxious.”

She said she will be sending

a mug to Jacinda Ardern, who

inspired her to create the mugs

when she said she loved having

her large mug of tea on the go

every day.

Each mug is handglazed with

a mix of both matte and shiny

textures. They are dishwasher

safe and hold 375ml.

2019 LocAL ELEcTionS - meet your candidates

Gail Woods Standing for Community Board - Heathcote Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

I have lived in Redcliffs for 12 years with my

husband Greg. We have 7 grown up children

and 5 grandkids between us and are very proud

of our blended family.

My background is, I have had no previous

involvement with local politics and have never

stood on any boards. I was encouraged to

apply for my local community board because

of my advocacy stance in life. I am a qualified

hairdresser with a degree in life skills. Over the

past 21/2 years Greg and I have been involved

in the water industry. I currently continue to

manage this business. We have also assisted

people with earthquake payouts and insurance

problems. I personally have a great interest in

natural health, but that’s another story. I believe

if we START with One, then it is amazing how

quick the answers come for all concerned.

My main focus points are:

1) Water and our reticulation systems. These

are extremely compromised and seriously needs

fixing;

2) Rates. These need an overhaul to bring into a

realist arena;

3) New Policeman back in Sumner to help

reduce local burglaries and crime;

4) Climate issues, ways to mitigate;

5) Roading repairs and footpaths. Remediated

ASAP;

6) 5G. Investigate its benefits and problems;

7) Waterways in the South Shore and low lying

areas, including Beachville Road.

This brings me to the water issue. This

is something I am very concerned about,

especially following Medical Officer of Health

Alistair Humphrey’s recent letter to the Ministry

of Health /Internal Affairs. It raises deep

concerns insisting that chlorine remains in our

water until further notice due to the reticulation

system. Pipe work under Christchurch City

is compromised. Chlorine is a 112 year old

technology, the only other technology older that

we still use is the wheel!

Authorised by Gail Woods, 61 Moncks Spur Road, Redcliffs, Christchurch 8081.

Sara Templeton Standing for Councillor - Heathcote Ward

As your councillor for the last three years I

have been a strong advocate for our ward and

an effective representative around the council

table.

Amongst other achievements I chaired

the Taylors Mistake Baches working group,

enabling a sensible resolution after thirty years.

I secured funding to complete the Coastal

Pathway around Moncks Bay, championed the

extended delegations to Community Boards and

chaired the Climate Change Working Group.

We have made significant progress as a city

in the last three years with the opening of the

Town Hall, Tūranga, the Lichfield St carparking

building, Matuku Tokotoko Sumner Centre,

Ngā Puna Wai sports complex, Taiora QEII, the

Signs of the Takahe and Kiwi, Nurses Memorial

Chapel and Risingholme Community Centre,

amongst many more.

We’ve finished the Beachville and Peacocks

Gallop’s sections of the Coastal Pathway, the

Beachville and Scarborough steps and the

wonderful Scarborough Playground. We’ve

reopened Sumner Road and provided safe

cycleways so commuters and school kids

can bike around safely. We’ve completed key

flooding projects like Dudley Creek and the

Heathcote flood detention basins, dredging and

bank stabilisation is almost complete.

However, like you, I know there is still much

to do, especially with our drinking water and

roading. I have consistently pushed to keep our

water chlorine free, for safe and sustainable

transport options, a healthy natural environment

and greater Council transparency.

Council also needs to engage residents

meaningfully in the development of our Climate

Change strategy, including the challenges and

opportunities of mitigation and adaptation,

enabling the transition to a thriving, sustainable

city.

For experienced, effective local leadership,

vote Sara Templeton for Council.

Authorised by Sara Templeton, 23 Marsden Street, Heathcote Valley, Christchurch 8022.

Tim Lindley Standing for Community Board - Heathcote Ward

As a former business development manager

for a CRI and being involved in four start-up

businesses, I am very experienced at setting

up, overseeing and troubleshooting projects.

I have a PhD in chemistry and studied

economics for two years so can move easily

between technical and financial matters at both

overview and detail level, very important skills

for community board work

I have volunteered extensively in

communities. I was on the Vestry of All Saints

Sumner when Fuse youth centre was set up,

volunteered in Aranui as support person to

Rev Mike Coleman and his successor, chaired

the Coastal Pathway Group in its early years

and am on the board of the Ihutai Estuary

Trust. So, as well as understanding projects I

understand diverse communities and how to

work with them.

In my first term on the community board,

I have been a strong supporter of the very

complex Heathcote River recovery project,

worked on the Opawa Library rebuild, and on

implementing several community initiatives in

Waltham. I am very pleased that completing

the coastal pathway is in the long-term plan

and the Estuary has gained international

flyway status. I led submitting feedback from

our board on proposed changes to the regional

district plan and government’s draft policy on

planning for successful cities. I also served on

several hearings panels.

I will continue to support the community

board being effective and transparent, turning

good ideas from communities into actions, a

more healthy, natural city environment, safe

active urban transport including cycleways,

supporting local businesses and facilities, and

prudent financial management within council.

Authorised by Tim Lindley, 28 Patmos Place, Mt Pleasant, Christchurch 8081.

Darrell Latham Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Heathcote Ward

As an elected representative I have a proven

track record advocating and gaining results for

residents. I do ask the hard questions and I do

seek accountability from the Council on your

behalf.

This is a defining election and ratepayers are

losing faith with the council. Areas of concern

include.

• Rates that are projected to rise by more

than 52% by 2028. Over the last three years,

average rate rises have hit 5.25%. This is

unacceptable.

• The Council needs to review income and

expenditure and how it manages assets to

avoid soaring debt.

• Ratepayers want transparency and

accountability without resorting to Official

Information Act procedures. The Council has

been branded as ‘’the most secretive in the

country.’’ A change of culture is required.

• Eight years on from the quakes we still

have endless roadworks, questionable sewage

systems and water that is compromised.

• Water supply, waste water, storm water and

water infrastructure are critically important. Our

waterways and coastal water form a major part

of the landscape and lives of the community.

• Central City residential developments

are creating masses of on street car parking.

These developments require off street parking

areas.

• A smart city is an accessible city. The

Council must listen to business people

and road users and create a user friendly

accessible city.

• We need individual and collective action

to minimise climate change. Mitigation and

adaptive management strategies must be part

of that discussion.

I am decisive, determined and dependable

and I will represent all Heathcote residents with

enthusiasm.

Authorised by Dr Darrell Latham, 53 Colenso Street, Sumner, Christchurch 8081.

Alexandra Davids Standing for Canterbury District Health Board

I am fully committed to giving all members

of our communities the strong, positive

representation they deserve.

I have been an elected member since 2013.

In this time, I have held a variety of positions,

including my daily work with Women’s Refuge

at the Battered Women’s Trust which has

given me an insight into the daily struggles

going on behind closed doors, Chair of

Keep New Zealand Beautiful, Chair of Keep

Christchurch Beautiful, Elected Member of the

Local Government Young Elected Members

Board, Local Government Elected Member

of the national Community Board Executive

Committee, Trustee of the Graeme Dingle

Foundation, Chair of Whitau School.

These experiences have given me the

opportunity to continue to develop the

leadership and mediation skills we need

around the table within the CDHB for us to

make positive steps forward for the entire

Canterbury region.

I am a proactive, results-focussed candidate

with the enthusiasm and energy needed to

effect positive change.

As your elected representative I aim to

strongly advocate for a parking solution for

Christchurch Hospital, future focussed decision

marking and more resourcing for our aging

population, more support for mental health and

chlorine free water.

Lianne Dalziel Christchurch Mayor - Standing for re-election

Paid Advertising Feature

Re-elect Lianne Dalziel Mayor

“I love Christchurch and am confident about our

future. With my experience and inclusive style

of leadership, we can tackle any challenges that

lie ahead, while seizing every opportunity that

comes our way.”

It is vital we keep the momentum going.

My immediate priorities are:

Water: Investment in our infrastructure will

deliver pure water safely to your home. I

will fight Government-imposed mandatory

chlorination.

Rates: I will bring rates rises down while

ensuring continued infrastructure investment,

and balancing council debt and inflation.

Central City: A vibrant city centre is essential.

Having secured $300m for Christchurch, the

stadium will be a multi-use facility. I will continue

to back the developers leading the way.

Sustainability: I am committed to reducing our

city’s carbon footprint, and helping communities

prepare for the impacts of climate change.

Eastern Alliance: An alliance of contractors will

deliver a fully integrated programme of works

across the east, fixing the roads, footpaths and

pipes and building stopbanks.

Do it once, do it right.

John Minto Standing for Christchurch Mayor

I am standing as a KOA (Keep our Assets

Canterbury) candidate for mayor because we

want a future for Christchurch which makes

sense.

The city faces three big challenges: a

climate emergency, a water supply threatened

by contaminants and many people struggling

on poverty incomes without dignity or selfrespect.

Our policies are to reduce greenhouse

gas emissions with free and frequent public

transport; provide a local zone for Canterbury

businesses and co-operatives in the city

centre; rebuild the 400 council rental homes

destroyed in the earthquakes; future-proof

our water supply and develop a plan for

swimmable rivers; rate increases kept to the

rate of inflation and a minimum of the living

wage for all council work.

As well as significantly reducing our

greenhouse gas emissions, fare-free public

transport will create a more cohesive, less

divided city as people mix and mingle on

modern, low-emission buses with free wifi.

It will also save families approximately four

weeks pay per year in transport costs which

will be spent in the local economy giving a

boost to local businesses and co-operatives.

This policy will not increase rates because

it will be paid for from existing government

budgets by rebalancing transport funding away

from new roads in favour of public transport.

These policies will improve our lives while

saving the council money. More details are at

www.MintoforMayor.nz

Authorised by John Minto, 21 York Street, Waltham, Christchurch.

Darryll Park Standing for Christchurch Mayor

Hello there, I am Darryll Park, a proud

Cantabrian, and extremely passionate about this,

our city of Christchurch.

I have lived and worked in and around

Christchurch all of my life.

In the past I was the CEO of Christchurch

& Canterbury Marketing Ltd, and I helped

to reposition Tourism under the government

Tourism 2010 Strategy, as well as past board

member of Civil Aviation Authority & Aviation

Security Services, two government agencies and

was employed as Air NZ South Island Manager

until 1998.

Nowadays I am the co-owner of Oxford

Management Services, a property development

and management company supporting

hospitality, Chair of Mondo Travel Group, and a

Director of the Canterbury Rugby Union and the

Crusaders.

What I’m standing for

I am standing as a Mayoralty candidate for

Christchurch in the upcoming elections. I am

campaigning to ‘Move Christchurch Forward’,

with a focus on common sense, a back to basics

approach and better ways to move us forward.

Why am I doing this?

Quite simply, I want to restore public trust in

Christchurch’s local leadership and with your

help, do what’s needed to be done to make

Christchurch, New Zealand’s most liveable city.

This will mean being accountable and

transparent to you, the voter, ratepayer, resident

and business community. Our key areas of

focus are rates, water, infrastructure, tourism,

sustainability, institutions and events, crime and

communities. I will be revealing our policies over

the coming weeks.

There is much to be done, and if elected, I will

stand aside from my current business interests

and governance roles to ensure my focus on this

city is absolute.

Thank you for your interest, and if you want to

help move Christchurch forward, I look forward

to your vote.

Kia ora, hello Banks Peninsula, Port Hills

and South Christchurch residents.

Te mana o te wai - top respect for water -

guides local government: when water

status is good, so is all life around it. The

four shared wellbeings - social, economic,

environmental and cultural - grow as values

built on pure aquifers, clean surface water

and secure domestic supply, with prioritised

care - kaitiakitanga. With service experience

2007-2010 from Save Our Water campaign,

I ask your vote of support again, returning

democracy and public oversight to Canterbury

Regional Council.

Biosecurity brings rural and urban people

together, against pest animals and plants that

undermine our economy and biodiversity.

As a Predator Free Port Hills coordinator

for Cashmere, I work with the Summit Road

Society, Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust,

DOC and council staff, to help our communities

protect the native species we all treasure.

Parallel to the Canterbury Water Management

Strategy and Zone Committees our elected

Ecan helped found, this collaboration shows

how all society can work together, for the

common good.

Emergency preparedness can’t be forgotten

and was the portfolio chair I held for the last full

elected Ecan board, before the earthquakes.

I have deepened readiness awareness

from then since, as a city civil defence and

residents’ group volunteer. I would help all

communites advance thorough emergency

response plans. Disasters can strike any

time, lest we forget. Harbour safety and public

transport are important. Climate change

mitigation work is most urgently essential to

begin.

flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt

and vanilla into a large bowl.

Add the yeast mixture and stir to

combine. Place a clean damp tea

towel over the mixing bowl and

set aside for 35-40min or until

the mixture is risen and bubbly.

Heat the oven to 100 deg C

fan-forced. Lightly grease a large

frying pan and set over mediumhigh

heat, then lightly grease a

few egg rings and place them in

the pan.

Stir the mixture again – it

should look like thick, bubbly

pancake batter. Add 60-125ml

(¼ cup-½ cup) more water to

reach the desired consistency if

necessary.

Spoon two to three

tablespoons of the mixture into

each egg ring. Cook for 2min

or until the tops are completely

covered in bubbles and the

batter is dry. Remove the egg

rings, transfer the crumpets

to a heatproof plate and keep

warm in the oven. Repeat with

the remaining mixture to make

about 20 crumpets.

Serve the warm crumpets with

your favourite toppings.

Any leftover crumpets will

keep in an airtight container in

the fridge for two to three days

or in the freezer for up to two

weeks.

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp black peppercorns

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp brown mustard seeds

Directions

Using a large mortar and

pestle, pound the masala curry

paste ingredients for about

10min or until you have a

smooth paste (alternatively,

you can use a small food

processor.)

Heat a saucepan over medium

heat, add the oil and curry paste

and saute for 30sec.

Add the onion and saute for

2min, then stir through the

tomatoes and chickpeas.

Reduce the heat to low and

simmer for 30min or until

reduced to a thick curry.

Haul those bulky loads in a Toyota Hiace

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IF YOU ARE a courier driver in

Christchurch, the chances are

you are probably driving a Toyota

Hiace van.

I can say that with absolute

confidence, for several years Star

Media was located opposite a

courier company and there was

a constant succession of Hiaces

arriving and departing.

Sure, there was the occasional

Ford Transit, and others, but

Toyota has captured that market

well and if you take into account

the number that are used by

tradies and companies, New Zealand

has been a lucrative market

for Toyota.

For those who like the square,

boxy shape of Hiace, don’t be

disappointed, there’s no sign of it

ending its lifecycle anytime soon.

However, there’s also a new Hiace

on the market, and the two will

dovetail in the light commercial

segment.

The new van is quite a departure

from what we see as

the traditional Hiace, its nose

protrudes from the front, housing

the engine which sits forward and

under the windscreen line.

However, don’t be fooled, the

engine still sits longitudinally and

drives through the rear wheels,

Toyota haven’t yet been lured into

making the Hiace front-wheeldrive

like some of its rivals.

The newcomer arrives here in

five variations, four of those are

ZR specification, panel and glass

vans, and a 10-seat mini bus.

There’s also a long-wheelbase ZX.

This evaluation encompasses

the ZR glass van and the jumbo

ZX, the latter is simply enormous

• Price – Toyota Hiace ZR,

$44,990 (ZX, $50,990)

• Dimensions – Length,

5265mm (5915mm); width,

1950mm; height, 1990mm

(2280mm)

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheel-drive,

2755cc, 130kW, 450Nm,

six-speed manual or

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.1sec

• Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

(8.4l/100km)

at almost 6m, and although it was

a single side door model only,

those landing from September

will have twin sliders, one on

each side. The ZX’s cargo carrying

space is massive, it’s a monster in

terms of presence, it won’t fit into

a standard car park space, and

every time you are leaving the

vehicle you need to be conscious

of how much of the planet you are

claiming. I took the ZX into the

supermarket car park and had to

use four parks so that it wouldn’t

block any access ways.

The ZR on the other hand, is a

lot more manageable; at 5.2m it’s

not quite so selfish, but the benefit

of both variants is that the load

space is cavernous.

Generally I’ve been pretty lucky

having load bearing vehicles

coinciding with items that have

needed to be transported. During

my time with both Hiaces,

I managed to use them both for

carrying duties – green waste

to the recycling centre and an

unexpected shopping expedition

TOYOTA HIACE: Short or long-wheelbase models.

where my wife and I bought several

bulky items of furniture, the

latter devoured easily in the ZX.

Apart from its voluminous

cargo carrying space – 6200-litres

(ZR) and 9300-litres (ZX) - the

new Hiace stands out for its comparative

high comfort levels, once

you’re in either of the two front

seats, bearing in mind it is a bit of

climb up, support and cushioning

is in abundance. There are

also plenty of knick-knack trays,

drink holders and pockets for all

those essentials that the business

operator would need in his/her

daily travels.

Along with a new look, the

new Hiace also gets a new engine.

It’s the 2.8-litre four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel that first

found its way here in Hilux three

or four years ago. It stands out for

its power, efficiency and smooth

operation. A lot of the latter is

attributed to its positioning out of

the cabin proper, it must be said

refinement in the new Hiace is

remarkable.

Power is rated at 130kW and

450Nm, it needs those healthy

outputs, even empty the Hiace is

tubby at 2235kg (ZR) and 2305kg

(ZX), but I’m sure that with a load

on there will be plenty of power

for all applications.

On the subject of figures, one

of the most important to any

owner/operator will be that of

fuel usage. From my experience

of this power plant in the Hilux

it is a bit of a fuel miser. Toyota

claims a 7.5-litre per 100km

(38mpg) combined cycle average

for the ZR in manual form, as

tested. The ZX automatic is listed

at 8.4l/100km (34mpg) which I

would expect to be quite achievable

depending on driving style.

Yes, it must also be remembered

that six-speed manual and

automatic transmission options

are still offered in the Hiace

range, the ZR was a manual, and

for those who like manuals I can

safely report it is a beauty with

slick shifts and clutch action that

is absolutely beautiful.

I took both test vehicles west

using much the same routes each

time, on the long straight roads

to Hororata and home through

Dunsandel and Lincoln. The Hiace

can’t be regarded as a dynamic

handling vehicle, sure it’s ability

in a corner is satisfactory, but you

do need to be mindful the live

axle rear suspension isn’t set-up

for speed, and with its height of

just below and above 2m in both

cases, there is a lot of gravitational

transition.

Nevertheless, it’s fair to say steerage

is informative, the driver is

always aware of the nuances driving

a van creates. Those who will

do long journeys each day won’t be

tasked, the Hiace has dignity and

consequence ease of use.

It must also be said the new

model has a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating. That’s mega in this

part of the market, and is a tribute

to the engineers who have created

a model to such a high safety

standard.

After The Flood

by Kassandra Montag

It’s 2031 and the world has been utterly transformed. After

years of rising floodwaters, all that’s left is an archipelago

of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of

open water. Civilization as it once was is gone.

Myra and her young daughter, Pearl, survive by fishing from

their small boat, visiting small hamlets and towns on dry land

to trade for supplies and information. The sole purpose of Myra’s existence is

to protect Pearl, while mourning the loss of her oldest daughter, Row, who was

kidnapped during the last terrifying storm surge.

For eight years Myra has searched for the girl that she knows, in her bones and

her heart, still lives. In a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra hears that

Row was last seen in a far-off encampment of raiders on the coast of what used

to be Greenland. Throwing aside her usual caution, she and Pearl embark on a

perilous voyage into the icy northern seas to rescue her.

A compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope, After the Flood

WIN THIS BOOK

THIS BOOK

is a magnificent, exhilarating, action-packed, and sometimes frightening odyssey

laced with wonder - an affecting and wholly original saga.

Inside Out

by Demi Moore

Famed American actress Demi Moore at last tells her own story in a surprisingly

intimate and emotionally charged memoir.

For decades, Demi Moore has been synonymous with celebrity. From iconic film

roles to high-profile relationships, Moore has never been far from the spotlight –

or the headlines.

Even as Demi was becoming the highest paid actress in Hollywood, however,

she was always outrunning her past, just one step ahead of the doubts and

insecurities that defined her childhood. Throughout her rise to fame and during

some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Demi battled addiction, body image

issues and childhood trauma that would follow her for years – all while juggling a

skyrocketing career and at times negative public perception. As her success grew,

Demi found herself questioning if she belonged in Hollywood, if she was a good

mother, a good actress – and, always, if she was simply good enough.

As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience.

In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi opens up about her career

and personal life. Inside Out is a story of survival, success, and surrender – a

wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s at once ordinary and iconic life.

Horncastle Arena, Christchurch

Door sales $10 | Kids under 12 free

This year’s Women’s Lifestyle Expo will be the biggest yet with over 200 companies

under one roof for one weekend. Pegged as the perfect girls’ day out, the show aims

to include as wide of a range of companies as possible, so the expo is a great day out

no matter what your interests are. Women are all different and their interests are so

diverse, so while one woman may be interested in gourmet food the woman beside

her may be more interested in booking a V8 Supercar drive, checking out the fashion

sites or even planning a holiday.

The show features artisan crafters exhibiting alongside national brands like Dilmah tea,

Lorna Jane activewear and Suzuki. “It’s great on the weekend to see all the various

women visit the show, from teenagers to grandmothers, mothers and daughters of

all ages and friends simply enjoying each other’s company” says Renee Murray from

NZME Events.

The expo features lots of new companies this year with everything from fashion and

accessories to organic products, delicious food, artisan crafts, unique businesses,

eco-friendly products and so much more.

Encouraging more

women to join

Only four percent of career firefighters

and 16 per cent of volunteer

firefighters are women but this is

slowly changing, chairperson of

Region Te Ihu Women’s Advisory

Network and Timaru senior fire fighter

Donna Lindsay said.

She said the move from using the

term firemen to firefighters has been a

positive step in recognising the work

women have been doing for years,

and FENZ is beginning to promote the

job to get more women involved.

“A lot of them see the fitness side,

especially the upper body strength, as

a bit of a barrier.”

“There has been, in Auckland and

hopefully Christchurch, little boot

camps in eight week blocks to help

people get up to speed with their

fitness and strength but that’s only a

part of the job.”

Lindsay said the work of the fire

service is more community-based

such as education at A&P shows and

in schools, and supporting at call outs

such as road traffic incidents.

Some brigades also take on childcare

volunteers to look after the firefighters

children when they are called to a job.

Most women would find something

within Fire and Emergency that would

make them want to join whether

it’s team building, community work,

talking – it’s not always fighting fires.”

It’s a very rewarding job and we need

the students and young people out

there to realise it is a possibility when

they start looking at careers.”

More information about Women

in Fire and Emergency Service

(WFENZ) is available at www.women.
