Peninsula

board chair

makes bid

for better

pay rates

• By Jess Gibson

TORI PEDEN is sick of seeing her

colleagues get paid $6 an hour for

the workload they carry.

The newly-elected Banks

Peninsula Community Board

chairwoman wants to request

better pay for its members by

writing a letter to

the Remuneration

Authority.

Ms Peden

received the same

income during

her last term as

a member, and

now wants to

present a case Tori Peden

that the current

remuneration model “doesn’t

make sense.”

The remuneration model is set

by population, so community

boards with bigger populations

get better remuneration.

New board members are

currently set to receive $9864 and

Ms Peden will receive $19,729 as

chairwoman.

As members work about 20

hours a week, they would receive

roughly $120 a week after tax.

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.

Vandals target historic jetty

• By Jess Gibson

VANDALS HAVE struck the

historic Governors Bay jetty just

as a rebuild project was due to

begin.

Over the weekend, a small fire

was lit at the end of the jetty,

wooden pillars were broken and

the fence at its

entrance was

damaged.

The attack

came just after

the Governors

Bay Jetty Restoration

Trust

Louisa Eades

bought the

150-year-old

structure off the city council for

$1 on Wednesday so it could

take control of a $2.7m rebuild.

It has been closed since a

post-earthquake engineering

inspection in 2011 found it was

unsafe.

Work will start in late

February or early March,

with the jetty expected to be

reopened to the public late next

year.

Trust secretary Louisa

Eades said it was lucky the

damage would not cause any

setback.

She said there appeared to

be two separate attacks – the

fire was lit during the middle

tree trouble?

WRECKED: The fence at Governors Bay jetty

was targeted in one of two acts of vandalism

jetty were also set alight . ​

•If you have any information relating to the incidents, email the trust on savethejetty@

rest of the damage happened

afterwards.

The fire was extinguished by

the Governors Bay Volunteer

water they carried down the

300m jetty.

“The next thing we will do is

make it as hard as possible for

people to get onto the jetty, but

it won’t delay anything.”

“I was super stoked that

all my training over the years

has paid off. It’s been one of

my goals for a couple of years, so

I was really happy, that

message definitely made that day

way better,” said de Rose.

“It’s my ultimate dream to

represent my country and my

sport and it’ll be awesome to be

in that environment with other

New Zealand athletes as well.

“I’m extremely happy, I’ve

always wanted to compete there

and the ice is meant to be great

in Switzerland.”

The Shirley Boys’ High School

student began speed skating at

four-years-old, after his mother

saw an advert in a newsletter.

Since then de Rose has been

obsessed, thinking of little else

outside of skating.

“I just had a thing for it ever

since I started and was constantly

wanting to go back, he said.

“At the start it was more casual

until I was about eight then I

started competing in Australia

and that made me want to progress

and be competitive.

“It’s so tense and so strategic

and you’ve just got to give it everything

you’ve got, I love it.”

De Rose has been going from

before the end of the year.

The city councillors can decide

to allocate funds from the pool

towards the remuneration of

community board members.

However, Ms Peden said she is

not holding her breath.

“It’s not a given. We understand

that it’s there for their delegations

and increased role capacities.”

She believes the community

board has a good case to put

forward to the Remuneration

Authority.

Its representatives look after

two harbours and the board

covers the largest geographical

area out of seven community

boards.

There is still one vacant

seat on the community board

after it failed to attract enough

candidates in the October local

body elections.

Low pay has also been cited

as one of the reasons five former

board members chose to retire

after the last term.

“We do feel it’s because of the

remuneration doesn’t match

the workload. Not many people

have the time or capacity to put

themselves forward.”

Ms Peden said having better

remuneration would encourage

better democracy around the

table.

Ideas mooted to attract

tourists to Lyttelton

• By Jess Gibson

A PLAN to stop cruise

ship visitors heading

straight from Lyttelton into

momentum.

Lyttelton Harbour Information

Centre manager

Ruth Targus has started

working on ideas put

forward at a community

meeting on the potential

effects of a new cruise

berth, which is set to open

in October.

Lyttelton Port Company’s

berth will allow cruise

ships which cater to more

than 5000 passengers and

2000 staff to dock.

At the meeting in

August, residents and

businesses raised concerns

over the possibility tourists

will not stay in the port

town and will instead go

directly into the central

city.

There has now been

confirmation of a shuttle

bus which will bring

cruise ship passengers to

the information centre

on Oxford St, as well as

coaches to the city, so that

Seawall to

be repaired

MAINTENANCE repairs are

needed along the Beach Rd seawall

in Akaroa.

The city council is seeking

public’s opinion on options to fix

the structure, which was built

from unreinforced stone between

1901-1904.

Over time, wave action of the sea

has been scouring out mortar and

sediments between the rocks and

creating voids in behind them.

This has resulted in damage or

slumping to the pavement behind

the sea wall, and in some areas

holes or pavement collapse is starting

to appear.

Due to the deterioration some

areas have had to be temporarily

fenced for pedestrian safety.

The preferred method of repair

is a ‘stone revetment toe’, where a

rock base is added to the front of

an existing wall. Other options

include a rock base, concrete bags,

gabion basket enclosure, sheet

piling, concrete spraying, stone

masonry and grouting.

City council staff plan to carry

out the repairs during winter 2020

so that it is completed before the

busy summer visitor period.

A dog’s life no more for these pooches

• By Sophie Cornish

FOR ALMOST three years

Sapphire waited at a dog shelter

in the hope that someone would

take her home.

Luckily for Sapphire, her

soon-to-be owner was familiar

in dealing with challenging

canines.

Jennifer Hooper’s other dog,

Stark, was adopted into her family

from a chequered, violent past.

Stark arrived at Christchurch

Bull Breed Rescue after a vet

who was supposed to euthanise

him believed he deserved a better

life.

After being rescued from a

gang house during a police raid

in Porirua, Stark was found with

cigarette burns on his body and

severely damaged ears.

Said Woolston’s Mrs Hooper:

“We’ve always had dogs but for

better use of a word, we were reasonably

snobby about it, we had

expensive dogs. We had a bichon

frise and a siberian husky.

“But, never again. When you

see the difference in rescue dogs,

what they bring into your family,

we would only go with rescue dogs

again in the future.”

Mrs Hooper’s latest challenge

was to build a relationship

between Sapphire and Stark,

so Sapphire could be adopted,

almost three years after CBBR

picked her up in 2016, when she

was 11-months-old.

CBBR founder Abbey van der

Plas said little was known about

her life before the shelter.

Said Mrs Hooper: “We got

Sapphire home after a very long

process of training. When I say

training, that’s me being trained

in how to look after her.”

Sapphire’s ‘quirks’ meant

Mrs Hooper visited the shelter

weekly for six weeks to become

familiar with her, with the help

of one of the volunteers, Denise

Balloch. Public outings were

also required to get Sapphire

comfortable with being around

strangers.

Then later, Mrs Hooper would

bring Stark along and eventually

they went on ‘doggie dates’ and

had ‘doggie sleepovers.’

“I knew it was a massive commitment

to take on a dog like

that. My work was really flexible

and I was able to go in later, so

I could be at the shelter. I was

at the shelter for about three or

four hours per week. Then later I

PALS:

Hooper with

Sapphire

(left) and

Stark.

began picking Sapphire up also,

two times a week.’’

After five months of this,

Sapphire’s adoption papers were

signed, late last month.

She has been living with her

new family, Mrs Hooper, her

husband and two sons, aged 19

and 21.

“She still sleeps in a crate, for

routine. But whoever is up first

in the morning will let her out

and she will hop into bed with

whoever is still sleeping,’’ she

said.

HOW MANY people out there

did anything for Halloween last

week?

Last year we didn’t do anything,

but as Vittoria is a bit

bigger now I wanted to at least

try take her door-to-door in

costume.

You know, to get lollies for me.

Got to keep her health in mind.

I formulated a plan with my

cousin – we would take her

along the other flats on the

property before heading over to

a kids’ Halloween party at the

Phillipstown Community Hub.

On Wednesday night Vittoria

and I had stayed in Waikuku

Beach. Normally, I would have

spent the next day out there,

taking Vittoria to the beach or

playground, before heading

home after her noon nap.

However, this time after a

morning beach walk, I’d got a

real bee in my bonnet on the idea

of getting her home before her

nap. Why? No idea. To see if I

could, I guess?

Even though I knew I would

be cutting it fine, I raced about

gathering up our things – forgetting

a bunch in the process – and

rushed out the door with a pretty

lively, smiley toddler.

As we made our way along

State Highway 1, Vittoria babbled

on about the things going by,

sang along to some songs and

flimsy plan was going to work.

Midway along Marshland Rd

the wheels fell off (figuratively)

when she yawned, got comfy and

promptly fell asleep.

No toddler ever has had a normal

by the time my cousin arrived a

about enough of the day.

together, she graciously let me

put the massively cute pumpkin

petticoat on. She seemed to

get a positivity boost when she

realised the point of the costume

was to go outside and doorknock

for lollies.

While she was happy, she was

still bone tired by the time we

arrived at the community hub.

She managed to be excited to see

all the other kids, stare in amazement

at some of great costumes

on display, listen to some of the

classic kids’ Halloween anthems

(Ghostbusters of course) and

enjoy some popcorn.

But it didn’t last long. Less

then 10 minutes after arriving

she’d burst into tears after briefly

losing sight of me,was not at

all interested in joining in any

games and had attempted to just

kind of walk home twice.

Honestly, nothing is cuter than

a tiny pumpkin-person boldy

just strolling off. But the hint was

dropped and I decided to throw

in the towel when she started

almost nodding off in my arms.

I think I’ll avoid any racing

against nap times in future.

Rugby Folklore by Matt Elliott

From superstitions to send-offs, All Black nick-names to on-field

battles: Rugby Folklore is a miscellany of stories, quotes, and

facts that are part of the fabric of New Zealand rugby.

New Zealand has played, celebrated and commemorated rugby

like no other country. We took to the game in extraordinary

numbers in the late nineteenth century. Rugby was the game for all.

It became a sport in which names like Grizz, Tiny, Guzzler, Pinetree,

Rimu, and the Paekakariki Express have made us feared and revered as the

greatest rugby nation on earth.

Rugby Folklore is a book about matches won and lost, rivalries built and

legends made. From on-field controversies, rugby songs, and what makes

an All Black to Hika’s great try, ‘Bring Back Buck’ and wind at Athletic Park so

strong that Don Clarke watched a ball kicked for touch sail back over his head.

Covering the earliest days of club-rugby through to the modern-day All Blacks,

this collection of interesting facts, unforgettable quotes and tall tales will you

leave you looking on our national game with pure unbridled pride ... and a

little disbelief!

‘Remember that rugby is a team game; all 14 of you make sure you pass the

ball to Jonah.’ - Fax to the All Blacks during the 1995 RWC

The Double Dangerous Book For Boys

by Conn Iggulden

Spark your imagination, forge your own adventures and unearth long-lost

skills.

In this long-awaited follow-up to his much-loved bestseller, written with

his sons Cameron and Arthur, Conn Iggulden presents a brand-new

compendium of cunning schemes, projects, tricks, games and tales of

extraordinary courage.

Whether it’s building a flying machine (keep your temper with this one) or

learning how to pick a padlock (or your own front door, but not someone

else’s), discovering our forgotten explorers and the world’s greatest speeches,

or mastering the lauded task of solving a Rubik’s cube, The Double

Dangerous Book for Boys is the ultimate companion to be cherished by

readers and doers of all ages.

WIN THIS BOOK

pupil has proven her skills as a

photographer.

the beauty and contrasts

of Heathcote River.

caregivers, friends and family on

the day.

CELEBRATIONS: Caregiver Hanna Zhionberg with resident Peter Adams.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

WINNERS: Best-dressed man and lady

Roger Goldsbero and Wendy Theobald.

DECISIONS: The judges weigh

Pottery group’s changing shape

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 13

Mt Pleasant Pottery Group co-chairwoman Renate

Galetzka writes about how the group has evolved since it

was founded 59 years ago

WHEN THE Mt Pleasant

Pottery Group was founded in

1960, it was known as the Betty

Crocker Potters.

This was because members

used commercially-supplied

materials from Smith and

Smith, rather than digging

them out of the ground as purist

potters did.

The group once operated out

of a hut across the road from the

Mt Pleasant Community Centre.

As the club expanded over the

years, it typically had an active

membership of about 60 to 80

and exhibitions were big affairs.

Over time, the club acquired

considerable assets, including

a gas kiln, salt-firing kiln and a

large wood-firing kiln.

Believed to be the oldest

pottery club in Christchurch,

the group celebrated its 50th

birthday before the earthquakes.

The February 22, 2011, quake

rendered the former Mt Pleasant

Community Centre clubrooms

unsafe, so for a number of years

it was a very difficult time.

Class activities continued to

a limited extent in a member’s

private studio in association

with workshops held as part of

the Otago Polytechnic Diploma

in Ceramic Arts distance

learning.

The group will forever be

thankful to Shona Clarkson for

keeping these activities going.

Finally in 2016, a then very

small but dedicated group

of members relocated to the

Phillipstown Hub as it was

unable to secure rooms in

the newly-rebuilt community

centre.

Members occupied a

classroom-sized space and a

kiln shed.

Since then, the club has

steadily been re-growing and

presently runs five regular

classes, children’s classes, club

days, raku firings, weekend

workshops and more.

One of the regular highlights

used to be the yearly exhibition

at the Mt Pleasant Community

Hall with an out-of-town

exhibitor who would open the

evening.

The group had not held an

exhibition for a number of

years, but felt it was time to

reintroduce it to the yearly

calendar to celebrate the group’s

achievements, its creative

members and a beautiful craft.

The exhibition was held

last month at the Mt Pleasant

Community Centre with guest

potter Neil Hey, who put his

works on show.

PROGRESS: Renate Galetzka giving a demonstration of engobe

decoration at the Mt Pleasant Pottery Group.

Readers respond to the Bay

Harbour News article about

the historic Sumner tram

shelter on the corner of main

Rd and Nayland St which has

become a safety hazard

Toni Pengelly – As a Sumner

resident and historian, I would

very much oppose the removal of

the tram shelter. The structure has

both historical and aesthetic value

to the community. We have lost so

many of Christchurch’s historical

assets that to pull such a structure

down for the want of council

funds would be a loss to future

generations. Please keep this issue

in focus in your paper.

Samuel Zelter – It would be

a shame to see the tram shelter go

due to simple neglect and minor

damage. However, until I read

the article, I had no idea it was a

tram shelter at all. Some signage

is an absolute must, and perhaps

something like tables to bring

people back to using the shady and

reclusive artefact of history.

John Belcher – I would

like to see the old tram shelter

restored.
