Backlash

leads to

Show Day

event

floundering

in Lyttelton

• By Jess Gibson

A PLAN TO hold a Show Day

party on Lyttelton’s main street

appears to have floundered after

a backlash from businesses and

residents.

Multi Events Ltd had planned

to hold the ticketed ‘Long Lunch’

on London St, which would have

seen it cordoned off from 7am to

6pm on November 15 – one of the

busiest trading days of the year.

The event management company

proposed placing a row of

tables along the road from Oxford

to Canterbury Sts, and hospitality

businesses were encouraged to

participate by creating their own

set menu.

However, a city council

spokesman said the traffic

management plan required

to close the street has been

withdrawn by Multi Events Ltd,

and it has not heard from them

since.

The move comes after the city

council received 26 objections to

the planned event from businesses

and residents.

from the editor’s desk

I’M NOT surprised there was widespread

opposition to closing London St on Show

Day (see page 1).

An events company wanted to set up a

party of sorts between Canterbury and

Oxford streets, which would see that part

of London St closed.

Called the Long Lunch, hospitality businesses would have

tables with set menus.

Not a bad idea, but there was one big snag.

Lyttelton bars and cafes were unhappy if they took part in the

event with a set menu, they would not be able to sell alcohol.

Parking too was gong to be a big problem for other businesses.

Said SuperValue owner Rob de Their: “It made us really unhappy,

it would have killed business. Even though there are car

parks below us they would have been taken up.”

We’re getting ready for a busy

tourist season in Akaroa

Here’s what we’re doing to support the township and community

through the busy summer tourist and cruise ship season.

Managing traffic flows

to improve safety and efficiency – especially when many people are

on the move.

Trialling changes to our traffic plans for

cruise ship days

such as monitoring bus idling and bus parking, and asking tour operators

to arrive closer to pick-up times to avoid congestion. We’ll make further

changes if needed.

Opening new public toilets at Place de la Poste

and installing new signage at Akaroa Wharf to direct visitors to the

nearest facilities.

Maintaining public spaces and parks

including emptying litter bins in Akaroa and Little River.

Installing six solar-powered Bigbelly rubbish bins

at key spots around Akaroa that take five times more rubbish than

standard bins. They have smart sensors to detect when they need

to be emptied and some also have free public wifi.

Distributing freedom camping information

and we’ll also be out and about monitoring freedom

campers throughout the summer.

Repairing Akaroa Wharf

so it remains open for commercial

and recreational activities. Concept plans

for the new wharf are being developed

and we will be seeking public feedback

on the designs next year.

CROWDED: About 130 residents from Sumner and nearby

areas attended the ‘Future Sumner Community Meeting’

last Tuesday to hear speakers from multiple agencies give

presentations on relevant issues. ​

the village centre, evacuation

methods, Richmond Hill

footpath and road upgrades,

public safety and an update on

Linwood College were among

the topics discussed.

All information from the

meeting is being collated and

will be available on the SCRA

Facebook page next week.

Presentations were given by

city councillor Sara Templeton,

and representatives from the

city council, police, Linwood

College, Sumner Volunteer Fire

Brigade, Land Information NZ

and SCRA on issues relevant to

their organisation.

Each presentation incorporated

questions which were sent

in by residents in the lead up to

the meeting.

SCRA co-ordinator Charlie

Hudson said knowing what is of

concern and interest to residents

will enable the association to

“work more effectively on the

communities behalf.”

“[The association] will continue

to be involved with groups

and residents assisting with

support where needed,” Mrs

Hudson said.

City councillor Sara Templeton

spoke on the current status

of the Sumner Masterplan, a

vision for the centre’s redevelopment

which was created after the

earthquakes and has the ability

to be refreshed.

Plans to have an alcohol-free

village, especially around

Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre

and skate ramp, are being investigated

and can be submitted

to SCRA as part of the Master

Plan refresh.

Residents were advised that

the best way to co-ordinate an

emergency response to a tsunami

was at a community level

with the help of the city council

on how to investigate, establish

and communicate local emergency

response advice.

Sumner Volunteer Fire brigade

chief officer Daryl Sayer offered

evacuation advice, which was for

those in cars to proceed as far as

up the hill roads as possible to

avoid congestion and to organise

a plan to stay with friends if

possible.

Senior Sergeant Roy Appley

spoke about how police are

working in communities

across Christchurch, including

Sumner.

He said Sumner has relatively

low numbers of burglaries and

domestic harm compared to the

rest of the city and encouraged

residents to report everything to

police.

In Brief

WATERMAIN RENEWAL

Work on a watermain renewal

on Libeau Lane, Akaroa, will

start on Monday and will

be times when vehicle access

to properties is restricted,

however, contractors will

door-knock beforehand so

residents can move vehicles

concerns over the potential

She said business owners

However, Multi Events

event on November 15.

Ms Tahau-Paton said the

company did not contact

the businesses which would

have been impacted by

the event and did not tell

them it was still planning

to hold it on November 15.

Instead business owners

and residents learned

about Multi Events Ltd’s

application in a newspaper

notice on October 7.

When Ms Tahau-Paton

posted the city council

notice to the Lyttelton

Facebook group, many

business owners and

residents said it was the first

time they had heard the

planned event was still set

to go ahead.

“The idea is great, but at

one of the busiest times of

the year, it’s just unfair,” Ms

Tahau-Paton said.

The notice said people

had until October 15 to

email their objections to

the city council, which

were passed onto the event

organiser.

However, the city council

spokesman told Bay

responsibility of the event

applicant to decide whether

TRICKY: The Redcliffs Residents’ Association is trying to figure

out the best way to remove rocks which have come to the

surface at Clifton Beach near Shag Rock.

No history of beach rocks

• By Jess Gibson

A WELL-KNOWN Redcliffs

historian is disputing claims that

piles of small rocks are natural

to the beach near Shag

Rock.

Two weeks ago Bay

Harbour News revealed

debris has come to the

sand’s surface following

the construction of the

Coastal Pathway, which

caused concerns for the

Redcliffs Residents’ Association.

City council delivery transport

manager Lynette Ellis said it will

not be removed as it is “naturally

occurring.”

However, Sumner Redcliffs

Historical Society honorary

secretary Topsy Rule has

checked old photos and records

Topsy Rule

at Matuku Takotako: Sumner

Centre’s museum and stones did

not appear anywhere.

Mrs Rule has lived between

Sumner and Redcliffs for the

past 80 years and has

never seen rocks at the

beach. However, she said

they may have formed

after the original tram

embankment in 1916

before being washed out or

covered by sand.

Meanwhile, RRA

secretary Pat McIntosh said

members are still trying to figure

out the best way to remove the

rocks before the rocks spread

and the task becomes too hard.

THe Redcliffs Residents’

Association is concerned that

the amenity of the sandy beach

has been affected by the debris.

Tram shelter deemed unsafe

• By Jess Gibson

A HISTORIC quake-damaged

tram shelter in Sumner has

become a safety hazard – but the

city council has no money to fix

it.

Council staff will consult with

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and other

interested parties over whether to

remove or repair the 97-year-old

tram shelter.

Depending on the option

chosen, funding will need to be

requested for the work in the

next Long Term Plan.

The structure has continued to

degrade since the earthquakes

and has become unsafe.

Resident Alisdair Hutchison

has concerns over a big rock

which has been sitting on the

cliff near the shelter after it fell

two years ago.

He is also concerned about the

roof, which is in danger of falling

as one of the concrete beams

holding it up is sitting half off its

pillar.

“It’s an absolutely life-threatening

situation,” Mr Hutchison

said.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member Darrell

Latham sent a request to the

city council on August 1 asking

for information on when the

tram shelter would be fixed on

REPAIRS

NEEDED:

The historic

Sumner tram

shelter has

deteriorated

since it was

damaged by

earthquakes.

behalf of Mr Hutchison.

A response said the tram shelter

would be assessed and fixed

by August 15.

However, while vegetation has

been cleared away and the fence

was removed for a short period,

Mr Hutchison has not seen any

repairs to the damage.

A city council spokesperson

said the tram shelter has been

fenced off to prevent access,

limiting risk to the public and

residents.

But Mr Hutchison said it

would be better to have the

shelter repaired as the fence was

an “unwelcome reminder of the

earthquakes.”

However, the city council

spokesperson said staff will have

to consider, in consultation with

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and other

interested parties, whether to remove

or repair the tram shelter.

Said Dr Latham: “The tram

shelter is a delightful and historical

reminder of a bygone era and

should be retained.”

Meanwhile, the Moncks Bay

Tram Shelter has still not been

repaired.

City council manager of transport

operations Steffan Thomas

told Bay Harbour News in April

the 85-year-old structure was

expected to be open before the

end of September.

However, Redcliffs Residents’

Association chairwoman

Christine Toner said it had

not been fixed and was still

surrounded in fencing.

Young entrepreneurs make

The group also won the

opportunity to present JELF at

the national finals in Wellington

on December 4.

Finn said the members put

their heads together at the start of

He said as

However,

it ended up

The awards were held at Ara,

There were 132 teams entered

in the competition, which was

narrowed down to six finalists.

Along with the top award, JELF

also won the Powell Fenwick YES

Sustainability.

Finn said the accolades felt

UPGRADES: Akaroa Community and School Library will be

closed for four weeks from November 18 while improvements

are made to the building.

Repairs planned for library

THE AKAROA Community

and School Library will soon

be closed for repairs and

refurbishment.

The building at 2 Selwyn Ave

will be closed for about four

weeks from November 18, while

work is done to modify the

library’s layout and improve its

energy efficiency.

City council head of

libraries and information

Carolyn Robertson said the

improvements are aimed at

making the library a more

comfortable space for both

customers and library staff.

“Because the library is only

going to be shut for about four

weeks we have made the decision

not to set up temporary

library facilities in Akaroa.

Instead, we are encouraging

library members to borrow a

month’s load of items before the

library closes.

“While the library is closed,

customers will be able to return

borrowed items to the Service

Centre in Akaroa. They will

also still be able to access our

full range of digital resources

including e-books, e-magazines,

and digital newspapers,’’ Ms

Robertson said.

It is expected the Akaroa

Community and School Library

will reopen to the public on

December 16.

During the library’s closure,

the nearest libraries for Akaroa

residents will be Little River

Library and Te Hapua: Halswell

Centre.

Rare bird

spotted near

A TINY and very rare Arctic

wader has been spotted near

Birdlings Flat.

It was one of just five recorded

The little stint or calidris

smaller than a sparrow, was seen

at Kaitorete Spit by Keystone

Ecology ornithologist Niall

Mugan.

City council ornithologist

Andrew Crossland said the

unusual sighting is a case of

“migration overshoot” and the

bird is about 12,000km from

“This sighting is pretty awesome

night, a “shaft of

light” accentuates

the difference

between the two types of stone

on the 143-year-old structure,

which is one of five working

timeballs in the world.

Mr Cawley who took on the

lighting project after being

asked by Heritage New Zealand

director for the southern region

Sheila Watson.

His aim was to “respect the

architectural integrity of the

tower and enhance the beauty of

the structure by night.”

At the awards, Mr Cawley

received one award from

IES and one from the Royal

Astronomical Society of NZ

for efficiently, effectively,

sustainably protecting the night

environment.

“I was stoked. I felt extremely

proud,” he said.

Built in 1876 to a design by

architect Thomas Cane, the

timeball signalled the correct

time for ships in Lyttelton

Harbour until 1934.

THe reconstruction of

the station after it was

destroyed in the February 22,

2011, earthquake was completed

in October last year.

Mr Cawley has lit up some

of Christchurch’s most iconic

buildings, including the

Isaac Theatre Royal and the

Christchurch Casino.

Back to swimming after a long absence

YOU KNOW how I said I missed

the whole co-sleeping thing?

Well on Tuesday I woke up

to Vittoria breaking the laws of

physics by putting her entire body

weight onto my face through her

face while lying down. She was also

singing in my ear.

It was way too early to make

me miss waking up like that. No

amount of adorable singing is

enjoyable before sunrise.

Laura flat out denied inserting

a toddler between us, so I have no

idea how she got into that position

either. I’m not sure if I was woken

up earlier and grabbed her into bed

to settle her, if she jumped up on

her own accord or if she has actually

mutated the ability to teleport.

Hell, can you imagine if it was

the last one? Absolute nightmare.

Beyond face-based wrestling

moves, we finally started back to

swim classes last week.

It’d been three months since Vittoria

had last been in a pool, so I

was worried her water confidence

would have waned.

My ability to handle washing,

drying and dressing both myself

and a much less cooperative toddler

post-swim was also in question

(mostly in my head). Fortunately

Laura had the day off so I had both

change-time support and a photographer

on call.

Concerns around (Vittoria’s) confidence

disappeared as soon as the

water hit her face and she cracked a

massive smile. It was like she’d not

missed a whole term and she aced

each activity. She even remembered

the actions to the Aquagym class

song better than me.

The only thing I thought had

VITTORIA

& Matt

slipped was remembering to kick

her legs when she did the activities

designed to introduce her to swimming

techniques, but she improved

during the class.

Unfortunately, time away hadn’t

dulled her dislike of swimming on

her back and it still held the same

risk of being uppercut, hair pulled

or getting fingers up your nose.

Of course, her favourite thing is

to jump off the foam mat into the

pool, it remained top of the list.

Hopefully this week the smooth

sailing continues in the pool.

Especially as Laura will be working

and I’ll be having to address my

concerns for my post swim admin

ability.

SMOOTH

SAILING:

Big smiles

being back

in the pool

together.

Sculpture unveiled in Teddington

• By Jess Gibson

A DISAPPEARING dress on a

dissolving staircase at Loudon

Farm in Teddington explores life

and the unknown future.

Sculptor Anna Korver has

finished her artwork on the

farm in preparation for the

South Island’s largest sculpture

exhibition, Sculpture on the

Peninsula, which runs from

November 8-10.

Korver set off from her studio

in Taranaki with a dismantled

steel staircase in the back of her

van, with plans to incorporate it

into the Banks Peninsula piece.

She has participated in the

exhibition before but this time

she has been developing the

staircase theme over several

years.

“Disappearing Dress on a

Dissolving Staircase is part of

a series of works that focus on

an undefined endpoint we are

heading towards,” she said.

“It has been a theme in my

work for a long time.”

Recently back in New Zealand

after completing a public

commission in Slovenia, Korver’s

work features in galleries and

private and public collections

around the world.

She is one of 70 artists involved

in Sculpture on the Peninsula,

which is held every two years to

raise money for Cholmondeley

Cold Storage

by David Koepp

When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate

a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly

mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. Now, after decades

of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out

and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. And only Diaz knows how to stop it. He

races across the country to help two unwitting security guards –

one an ex-con, the other a single mother. Over one harrowing

night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine

this horror again . . . before it’s too late,

The Sequel To PS, I Love You

by Cecelia Ahern

The long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller PS, I Love You! It’s

been seven years since Holly Kennedy’s husband died - six since she read

his final letter, urging Holly to find the courage to forge a new life. She’s

proud of all the ways in which she has grown and evolved. But when a

group inspired by Gerry’s letters, calling themselves the PS, I Love You

Club, approaches Holly asking for help, she finds herself drawn back into

a world that she worked so hard to leave behind. Reluctantly, Holly begins

a relationship with the club, even as their friendship threatens to destroy the

peace she believes she has achieved. As each of these people calls upon

Holly to help them leave something meaningful behind for their loved ones,

Holly will embark on a remarkable journey - one that will challenge her to

ask whether embracing the future means betraying the past, and what it

means to love someone forever....

HARD WORK has paid off

for Redcliffs resident Shaun

Halliwell, owner of Merivale’s

No.4 Restaurant and Bar.

The business was named number

one at the Hospitality New

Zealand Awards for Excellence

last week.

The restaurant now holds the

title of ‘best neighbourhood bar

and eatery.’

Mr Halliwell said it wasn’t the

first award the business has won,

but it was the first of such a high

magnitude.

“Since we opened No.4 in

2006, real hospitality has been at

the centre of everything we do.

We look after our team, and they,

in turn, stick around, often for

many years and look after our

customers. Some of them even

recall individual loyalty card

numbers,” he said.

Mr Halliwell said the award is

Award for restaurant owner

great recognition of all the hard

work his staff put into their work.

“They do a great job, they work

incredibly hard,” he said.

He thought the reason behind

the businesses success is that

its spaces cater to a range of

occasions.

“We can have a rowdy party

going on in the bar, live music

outside, and a formal dinner

in the library, and everybody’s

happy,” Mr Halliwell said.

He submitted an application

to Hospitality New Zealand to

be entered in the running for the

award and was pleased with the

result.

Head chef Ian Mulling – who

has been with the No.4 team

since it ran the Clarendon

Restaurant on Oxford Tce which

was destroyed in the earthquakes

– accepted the award on behalf

of the team at a ceremony in

Hawke’s Bay.

through until just combined.

Pour over the apples – the egg

mixture should end up level with

the apples. Bake in a pre-heated

Boot goes into exciting Mazda 3

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT’S TOO early to be talking

about the 2019 New Zealand

Motoring Writer’s Guild Car of

the Year award, the nominations

have only just been released and

judging won’t take place until

December.

However, I’m pleased to say

the new Mazda3 is on the list of

finalists. I say this because the

latest generation model has made

quite an impact on me, it is one

very fine vehicle.

Effectively, I’ve driven three

models back-to-back, two hatches

and a sedan, and each stands out

as being competent, quality built,

efficient and purposeful, what’s

more it’s such a darn nice car to

drive and to be in.

I’ve mentioned many times

in these columns how I’m very

much a sedan buyer and although

I’ve owned hatches and liftbacks

over the years, I’m always drawn

to the traditional concept.

This evaluation surrounds

the Mazda3 sedan, and it would

be the car for me if I had funds

to buy new in today’s market.

I would settle for the entry

level GSX at $36,595, but the

evaluation car – a Limited at

$48,795 – is a model which

borders on the luxury car class

for just a fraction of the cost.

As opposed to the GSX with

its 2-litre engine, the GTX and

Limited both get a 2.5-litre

four-cylinder engine. Each has

its merits, and both deliver

outstanding performance.

The 2.5 is rated at 139kW and

252Nm, although the outputs

are reached a little tall in the rev

band at 6000rpm and 4000rpm

respectively, the management

protocols are structured so that

effective torque is spread broadly.

Drive is carried to the front

wheels through a traditional sixspeed

automatic transmission.

In limited form the driver has

the use of paddle shifters should

he or she want to get involved in

the gearchange process. Shifts are

smooth and satisfactorily quick,

the engine has no trouble filling

the gaps between gears but with

six cogs the ratios are quite close,

so there are no surprises there.

The gearing is also structured

so that the engine isn’t loaded

at highway speed, at 100km/h it

is turning over at just 1900rpm,

quite relaxed and sipping fuel

at the instantaneous rate of

5.5-litres per 100km (51mpg).

That contributes to the efficient

7.6l/100km (37mpg) dash panel

MAZDA3 LIMITED SEDAN: Increase in boot space.

average during my time with the

evaluation car. Mazda claims

a combined cycle average of

6.5l/100km (44mpg), which

correlates well with my figures.

In terms of figures, the new 3

also has a good turn of speed,

it’s no rocket, but with an 8.8sec

time to make 100km/h from a

standstill, it easily keeps pace

with traffic and disgraces cars

with a far higher pedigree. A lot

of that can be attributed to its

relative lightweight, at 1388kg, it’s

not burdened, and is a tribute to

the Mazda engineers who, early

in the company’s manufacturing

process, realised how important it

is to build cars minimising weight

in all components.

That also has a beneficial effect

on handling. The Mazda3 is tight

and composed when presented

with quick corners. I took the

test car on a short hilly burst and

enjoyed its directional accuracy

and stability. Saying that, the new

model doesn’t have the benefit

of four-wheel independent

suspension, there are struts up

front, but the rear is a torsion

beam-type linking the two rear

wheels. Nevertheless, I’m yet to

find a reason why I don’t like it,

there is solid direction control in

a corner, and comfort levels are

far from compromised.

If today’s new car buyer isn’t

hell-bent on buying a sports utility

vehicle, then the next option would

generally be a hatch or liftback.

That being the case, the Mazda3

sedan would probably be a final

choice for many. However, it’s there

for those like me who are drawn to

having good boot space. Yes, the

load space in the Mazda3 sedan

is deep and cavernous – 444-litres

of cargo can be carried there. That

compares to 295-litres of the hatch

with the rear seats upright.

There’s no compromise in

styling; while the hatchback

is bold and daring around the

C-pillar, the sedan is a little more

conservative, but it still looks

• Price – Mazda3 Limited

sedan, $48,795

• Dimensions – Length,

4460mm; width, 1795mm;

height, 1440mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 139kW, 252Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 6.5l/100km

smart and desirable.

Limited specification is Mazda’s

high grade variant, and it misses

out on nothing. All the traditional

items are fitted including the latest

generation i-Activesense suite

of safety technologies, safety has

reached a new pinnacle in modern

cars, and Mazda’s inclusions are

first class and uncompromised.

It easily meets the five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program criteria.

It’s been a big year for Mazda

New Zealand, it has launched

a raft of new models and I’ve

evaluated all of those.

Each stands out for varying

reasons but the one thing

common to all is the involvement

and enjoyment that can be

gleaned from being in the

company’s line-up. It is indicative

of the passion it has for making

engaging, mainstream cars that

punch well above their weight

in terms of where they sit in the

market.
