Preparation key to marathon success<br />

FLEET-FOOTED: Sumner Running Club member Lisa Brignull won the 45-54 age category and was second overall female at<br />

the Buller Gorge Marathon on Saturday. ​<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

AS SHE gets older, Lisa Brignull<br />

believes she is becoming wiser<br />

with her race preparation.<br />

This may be the reason<br />

why the Sumner Running<br />

Club member clocked her<br />

personal best at the Buller<br />

Gorge Marathon by 30sec on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The full marathon started<br />

at Hawks Crag, while the half<br />

marathon started near the<br />

Ohikati River. Both events<br />

finished at Victoria Square,<br />

Westport.<br />

It was Brignull’s 10th time<br />

competing in the full course<br />

and she finished first in the<br />

45-54 age bracket with a<br />

time of 3hr 4min 52sec.<br />

She was second overall in<br />

the women’s field behind her<br />

friend, Hannah Oldroyd, of<br />

England, who won the entire<br />

event.<br />

Forming<br />

community<br />

board<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

COMMUNITY board members<br />

in Banks Peninsula want to build<br />

a stronger relationship with<br />

Lyttelton police.<br />

It is to help mitigate residents’<br />

ongoing concerns over crime<br />

taking place in and around the<br />

harbour by<br />

advocating for<br />

the community<br />

to police.<br />

Said chairwoman<br />

Tori<br />

Peden: “We<br />

want to be proactive<br />

and help Tori Peden<br />

the community<br />

as best we can.<br />

We’d like the police to help us<br />

through that and we’d like to<br />

support the police in what they’re<br />

doing.”<br />

She said the community<br />

board has a good relationship<br />

with Akaroa police and wants<br />

to establish the same in Lyttelton.<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

LISA BRIGNULL has notched up another<br />

milestone, winning the Buller Gorge<br />

Marathon’s 45-54 age group section,<br />

taking 30sec off her previous best time (see<br />

page 1).<br />

It was Lisa’s 10th Buller marathon, so<br />

no doubt taking half a minute off her previous best was very<br />

satisfying.<br />

Said Lisa: “On the day I break the race up into pieces. The first<br />

16km I run with my head, the next 16km I run based on my<br />

training, and the last 10km I run with my heart.”<br />

Other Sumner club members Danny Carmine, Martin Lukes<br />

and Rosie Hay also did well in their respective events.<br />

Also, today more revelations about crime concerns in<br />

Lyttelton (see page 1). It has been an ongoing issue with<br />

residents for some time.<br />

Major safety concerns<br />

on busy Akaroa road<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

AKAROA RESIDENT Bryan<br />

Tichborne is concerned it could<br />

take a pedestrian getting hit by a<br />

vehicle before something is done<br />

about an unsafe and heavily<br />

congested road.<br />

On busy days, most of Rue<br />

Balguerie becomes<br />

a single<br />

lane when<br />

bigger vehicles<br />

such as trucks,<br />

boats, buses<br />

and trailers<br />

Nigel Harrison ​<br />

park on both<br />

sides of the<br />

road.<br />

There are also issues with<br />

vehicles speeding along the road<br />

in the mornings and at night,<br />

some by up to 30km/h above the<br />

current 50km/h limit.<br />

Mr Tichborne lives on Rue<br />

Balguerie and is one of many<br />

residents who have wanted<br />

safety improvements to be made<br />

for several years.<br />

“At the moment if you’re at the<br />

bottom of the road driving up<br />

and you see someone coming,<br />

DANGEROUS: Rue Balguerie in Akaroa is reduced to a narrow<br />

single lane when vehicles are parked on both sides.<br />

quite often you have to pull in<br />

100 to 200m from where that<br />

car is to let them though,’’ he<br />

said.<br />

“When you’re walking down<br />

the road and you have to cross it<br />

you’ve got to be really careful.”<br />

He formed a petition about<br />

two years ago which was presented<br />

to city council staff. He<br />

said “nothing was done.”<br />

“I tried again a couple more<br />

times but to be honest, I gave up.<br />

In my last email I said it’s going<br />

to take a nasty accident for<br />

something to be done.”<br />

He said people in the community<br />

share the same concern.<br />

Mr Tichborne believes reducing<br />

the speed limit to 30km/h,<br />

reducing parking to one side of<br />

the road and heightened policing<br />

may alleviate the issues.<br />

He said the issue was bought<br />

up again recently and he has<br />

spoken with Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board member<br />

Nigel Harrison and resident<br />

Charl Chaney to try and get<br />

something done.<br />

Mr Harrison said there needs<br />

to be “serious planning” about<br />

how to stop the problems.<br />

“It’s creating quite a bit of<br />

anguish to people that are living<br />

on the street.”<br />

The community board has<br />

asked city council staff to look<br />

into the issue and provide feedback<br />

to members on what can<br />

be done.<br />

City council team leader of<br />

traffic operations Stephen Wright<br />

said staff are familiar with the<br />

site and “will visit to undertake<br />

further observations and measurements<br />

in the near future.”<br />

He said these will focus on<br />

parking demand, road widths<br />

and availability of potential<br />

parking locations.<br />

•Parking restrictions, page 4<br />

In Brief<br />

WALKING TRACK<br />

A hazard assessment will be<br />

carried out on a Sumner walking<br />

track to see if it can be repoened<br />

to the public. The Edwin Mouldey<br />

track, which provides a path from<br />

Nayland St to Scarborough Rd,<br />

was closed due to earthquake<br />

damage in 2011. City council staff<br />

will provide information and<br />

advice from the assessment back<br />

to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board.<br />

WATER RESTRICTIONS STAY<br />

No adjustments have been made<br />

to a total hosing ban in parts of<br />

Banks Peninsula. The city council<br />

introduced level four water<br />

restrictions in Akaroa, Duvauchelle<br />

and Takamatua on <strong>February</strong> 3.<br />

“What we’re asking police is<br />

Association chairman Ken<br />

said police have been asked to<br />

attend a board briefing and have<br />

indicated they can attend one on<br />

May 4.<br />

He said six-monthly meetings<br />

were sufficient for now, but<br />

police would judge that over<br />

time.<br />

The community board also<br />

requested that staff provide<br />

information on the potential<br />

installation of crime prevention<br />

cameras in Lyttelton.<br />

the things that we need to look<br />

Car parking to be removed near boat ramp<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

VEHICLES WILL no longer be<br />

able to park along a stretch of<br />

road near a busy boating spot in<br />

Takamatua.<br />

The Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board approved a no stopping<br />

restriction on both sides of<br />

Quail Cres, between Kingfisher<br />

Rd and McReas Rd, at its meeting<br />

on Monday.<br />

The city council advised<br />

members to pass the decision<br />

following concerns from the<br />

Takamatua Ratepayers Association<br />

that parked vehicles were<br />

obstructing traffic.<br />

A staff report said the move<br />

will ease congestion on what is<br />

a narrow and steep residential<br />

road.<br />

It will also prevent vehicles<br />

from parking on the road shoulder<br />

of Quail Cres, uphill of the<br />

Takamatua boat ramp, which is<br />

affecting vehicle access.<br />

There are some concerns from<br />

staff that the restrictions will<br />

cause parked vehicles to be displaced<br />

onto other nearby sections<br />

of road with an unknown effect.<br />

However, there is a typically<br />

low parking demand most days<br />

and there is other public parking<br />

available.<br />

Signs and markings, including<br />

yellow lines, are set to be<br />

implemented within the next<br />

four weeks.<br />

Water<br />

restrictions<br />

are in place<br />

Level 4 water restrictions are now in place<br />

for Akaroa, Duvauchelle and Takamatua.<br />

This means no outdoor water use.<br />

We’ve made this decision as local streams<br />

are very low and we’re expecting hot, dry<br />

weather to continue. For more information,<br />

check the Akaroa sign, call 0800 800 169<br />

or visit<br />

Part closing Summit Rd<br />

at night a possibility<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

PARTS OF Summit Rd could<br />

be closed at night following the<br />

tragic death of two sisters on the<br />

road last year.<br />

Seventeenyear-old<br />

Tayla<br />

Alexander died<br />

in the crash in<br />

November. Her<br />

sister Sunmara<br />

died on her<br />

16th birthday<br />

in hospital after<br />

suffering critical<br />

injuries and<br />

extensive burns<br />

from the crash.<br />

Mike<br />

Davidson<br />

Their father, Jason Alexander,<br />

delivered a petition to the city<br />

council asking it to make the<br />

road safer last month.<br />

City councillor and chairman<br />

of the urban development and<br />

transport committee Mike<br />

Davidson said that closing parts<br />

of the road at night could be a<br />

possibility.<br />

“Closing the area between<br />

Dyers Pass Rd and the no exit<br />

by Rapaki Track where the crash<br />

happened could be an option.<br />

But I personally think we need<br />

to look at the whole of Summit<br />

TRAGEDY: Tayla Alexander (left) and her sister Sunmara<br />

Alexander both died following a crash on Summit Rd last year.<br />

Rd because the stretch has parts,<br />

which if driven at speed can be<br />

dangerous.”<br />

Cr Davidson said any changes<br />

to Summit Rd would require<br />

public consultation.<br />

“We have not made any<br />

decisions to go into consultation<br />

to close it but it needs to be part<br />

of discussions.”<br />

The city council consulted<br />

on the Summit Rd speed limit<br />

last year and decided to reduce<br />

Rare book set<br />

gifted to Lyttelton<br />

A RARE book set celebrating<br />

the history of Canterbury will be<br />

returned to its home in Lyttelton.<br />

The John Robert Godley Memorial<br />

Trust published ‘Godley<br />

Gifts’ in a limited edition of only<br />

100 copies, each signed by former<br />

prime minister Helen Clark.<br />

Each hand-numbered and<br />

hand-dedicated set contains<br />

three volumes, including a<br />

number of essays, watercolours<br />

and an exact replica copy of New<br />

Zealand’s first illustrated children’s<br />

book, called Seadrift.<br />

The artists of Godley Gifts<br />

were early entrepreneur James<br />

Edward FitzGerald and the<br />

contemporary actor and writer<br />

David McPhail.<br />

Canterbury’s founder John<br />

Robert Godley and his family<br />

were waiting in Lyttelton on the<br />

morning of December 16, 1850<br />

when the first immigrant ship arrived<br />

from England.<br />

The first person ashore was Mr<br />

FitzGerald, who fell into Godley’s<br />

arms – the emotion of the moment<br />

was said to be overwhelming<br />

to both.<br />

Because of this, Mr FitzGerald<br />

wrote and illustrated two of<br />

Godley Gifts three volumes,<br />

gifting one to Mr Godley, and<br />

GIFTED: Brent Rawstron,<br />

Dorothee Jansen and Haydn<br />

Rawstron (the John Robert<br />

Godley Memorial Trustees) with<br />

‘Godley Gifts’ no.50 ​<br />

the other to Godley’s little son<br />

Arthur.<br />

Mr McPhail has written the<br />

third volume of the set, a collection<br />

of brilliantly observed<br />

anecdotal essays.<br />

The trust is gifting book set<br />

number 50 to the Lyttelton community<br />

at 3pm on Sunday.<br />

The public event will be held<br />

in the St Saviour’s Chapel at Holy<br />

Trinity Church, 17 Winchester St.<br />

It will be attended by Deputy<br />

Mayor and Banks Peninsula<br />

councillor Andrew Turner and<br />

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson.<br />

chance romance<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

SHE WAS from Sumner,<br />

he was from North<br />

Canterbury.<br />

They had just met and<br />

got talking at the central<br />

bus interchange on Lichfield<br />

St about 1.30am last<br />

Sunday while waiting to<br />

catch separate<br />

trips home<br />

after a night in<br />

town.<br />

But as they<br />

were getting<br />

to know each<br />

other, it was<br />

time to part<br />

ways.<br />

Following a bout of<br />

Roe van<br />

der Merwe<br />

regret over not getting the<br />

man’s phone number, the<br />

woman turned to her bus<br />

driver for help when she<br />

got off the bus.<br />

That bus driver was Roe<br />

van der Merwe, who is also<br />

the co-ordinator for the<br />

new ‘Midnight Express’<br />

Sumner service which<br />

started on January 26.<br />

He now remembers<br />

nothing about his passenger,<br />

except that she was 23<br />

years old, blonde, and lives<br />

in Sumner.<br />

“When she got off in<br />

Sumner she was like ‘I<br />

know I should have done<br />

this then, but I’m just going<br />

to put myself out there.<br />

Can you please call the<br />

Rangiora bus?’<br />

“So I called up the Rangiora<br />

bus, the driver passed<br />

her phone to the guy and<br />

I passed my phone to [the<br />

woman] and they had a<br />

conversation. Numbers<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

THINGS HAVE been<br />

running smoothly for a<br />

new bus service which<br />

takes party goers from the<br />

city to Sumner.<br />

Bentley Transport or<br />

Christchurch Shuttles and<br />

Tours started a six-month<br />

trial running the “Midnight<br />

Express” Sumner<br />

service on January 26.<br />

It departs from the<br />

Christchurch Bus Interchange<br />

on Lichfield St and<br />

follows the same route<br />

as Metro’s Purple Line at<br />

INVESTED: Two matchmaking bus drivers want to<br />

know if anything eventuated from two strangers<br />

meeting at the central bus interchange.<br />

were exchanged.<br />

“According to the Rangiora<br />

bus driver, the guy was<br />

“quite chuffed” when he<br />

found out she wanted his<br />

number.”<br />

Now, two “emotionally<br />

invested” bus drivers want<br />

to know if their matchmaking<br />

skills have paid off.<br />

Mr van der Merwe told<br />

the woman to get in contact<br />

with Bentley Transport<br />

or Christchurch Shuttles<br />

and Tours, which run the<br />

1.15, 2.15 and 3.15 am on<br />

Sundays.<br />

Redcliffs resident Topsy<br />

Rule had initial concerns<br />

about the service, as she<br />

experienced issues with a<br />

similar service which was<br />

operating before the <strong>February</strong><br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

Passengers would make<br />

noise and vomit when getting<br />

off at stops along the<br />

bus route.<br />

But she said there have<br />

been no problems so far<br />

and she has heard no negative<br />

feedback from other<br />

Midnight Express lines, to<br />

let someone know if anything<br />

came of the brief but<br />

memorable encounter.<br />

“We are still waiting to<br />

hear from them to see if<br />

they’ve gone on their first<br />

date yet.”<br />

• If you were one of<br />

the two involved in<br />

the Midnight Express<br />

romance, or if you think<br />

you know who it may<br />

have been, email jess.<br />

No issues with Midnight<br />

Express bus service<br />

residents in Sumner and<br />

Redcliffs when she has been<br />

out in the community.<br />

Sumner service co-ordinator<br />

Roe van der Merwe<br />

said no complaints have<br />

been received since the trial<br />

began.<br />

He said there is an aim<br />

for the service to be “as<br />

courteous as possible.”<br />

Mr van der Merwe said<br />

at the moment, passenger<br />

numbers are on the lower<br />

side but the company is<br />

working to increase its<br />

profile.<br />

Kris Tynan responds to<br />

last week’s article about<br />

bins overflowing at Taylors<br />

Mistake Beach<br />

First of all, big thanks to the<br />

Taylors Mistake lifeguards who<br />

pick up stray bits of rubbish<br />

from their beautiful beach. Great<br />

to hear that happens.<br />

I am frequently at the beach<br />

in the mornings either before or<br />

after the council workers collect<br />

the rubbish.<br />

Invariably, after a very warm<br />

day there will be too much rubbish<br />

for the bins available and it<br />

has almost always been placed<br />

next to the bins.<br />

Bigger bins are clearly required<br />

but it seems like the Bigbelly<br />

Bins are on their way to solve<br />

this problem. It is true that after<br />

a windy day lighter rubbish will<br />

have blown around a bit but that<br />

is understandable, and again the<br />

Big Bellies should solve that.<br />

In my opinion and experience<br />

90 per cent of visitors to Taylors<br />

Mistake are responsible with<br />

their rubbish and I would like<br />

to comment that your headlines<br />

‘Taylors Mistake being treated<br />

as a rubbish tip’ and ‘Taylors<br />

Mistake a dumping ground’<br />

are both inaccurate and over<br />

dramatic.<br />

Then again they achieved their<br />

purpose of getting attention and<br />

inspiring comment … so I guess<br />

as media that’s your job.<br />

Grateful for the beautiful<br />

place we have the privilege to<br />

inhabit.<br />

Readers respond to<br />

last week’s article about<br />

the completion of repairs<br />

to the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> tram<br />

shelter after several<br />

months of delays<br />

Gordon Macadam – We<br />

have a problem with the time<br />

taken for city contractors. While<br />

[it was] understandable immediately<br />

after the quakes, it is no<br />

longer acceptable for projects to<br />

take so long.<br />

The conditions of city issued<br />

contracts should be publicly<br />

available. The financial stuff<br />

can remain confidential but<br />

only contractors that have the<br />

resources to promptly attend to<br />

contracts should get to tender.<br />

Contract conditions should<br />

include:<br />

• Once started council contracts<br />

are to be worked every<br />

business day.<br />

• The management team of<br />

a job should have their name<br />

available to the ratepayers.<br />

• The reason for any delay in<br />

progress should be posted on the<br />

job for passers by to see.<br />

• Traffic management that disrupts<br />

traffic should be in place<br />

only when work is in progress or<br />

the hazard is in existence.<br />

• All traffic management systems<br />

that disrupt traffic should<br />

display the name and phone<br />

number of the person responsible<br />

for that system.<br />

We have tolerated for too long<br />

a system where contractors can<br />

juggle multiple contracts with<br />

a minimum of labour and poor<br />

project management which can<br />

be covered up by shifting the<br />

team else where when a planning<br />

oversight is exposed.<br />

Liz Barrie – There were three<br />

men working on this project<br />

when ever I went past, so why<br />

did it take so long? I wonder how<br />

much it cost.<br />

Linen and leather<br />

at Stoddart Cottage<br />

LINEN GARMENTS and leather<br />

accessories handcrafted by<br />

Lithuanian-born Elena Chomic<br />

will be on display at Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>’s Stoddart Cottage<br />

Gallery this month.<br />

In this solo exhibition, Chomic,<br />

of Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> continues<br />

her birth-country traditions with<br />

original design and contemporary<br />

style.<br />

Linen, leather,<br />

wood and<br />

wool are common<br />

materials<br />

for folk art and<br />

craft in Lithuania<br />

and there<br />

Elena Chomic<br />

is a long and<br />

strong tradition<br />

of using locally<br />

produced linen textiles for clothing<br />

and household furnishing.<br />

Colours from nature such as<br />

warmly glowing amber, ochre<br />

clay, forest greens and sea blues<br />

are preferred for daily life, even<br />

the brighter blue of linen flax<br />

flowers.<br />

Chomic was born and raised<br />

near the Baltic Sea and at school<br />

she was taught how to work<br />

with linen textiles, to weave and<br />

embroider, and to make objects<br />

from leather and wood.<br />

She has continued to work with<br />

TRADITIONAL: Lithuanianborn<br />

handcrafted garments will be<br />

available to view this month<br />

these materials throughout her<br />

life.<br />

“It’s been six years since I arrived<br />

in New Zealand and today<br />

it sometimes seems to me that I<br />

was born here,” Chomic said.<br />

Handling screaming in public<br />

PRIOR TO last week, I’d<br />

managed to contain the majority<br />

of Vittoria’s toddler tantrums to<br />

within the realm of my house<br />

or the house of a relative (or an<br />

aeroplane when she was four<br />

months old, but that was a long<br />

time ago).<br />

Now, I know the feeling of<br />

having complete strangers look at<br />

you in horror, because they likely<br />

believe you are either kidnapping<br />

a toddler, or murdering it.<br />

Vittoria’s Nan overnighted at<br />

our place last week to both make<br />

it easier to get to her work shifts<br />

and to allow me to go to dragon<br />

boat training by looking after<br />

Vittoria.<br />

In an effort to repay my mum’s<br />

help I offered to play driver on<br />

some errands for her.<br />

To my eternal gratitude, my<br />

mum’s a keen bargain hunter,<br />

so while we were on the errands<br />

in Hornby we, of course, had<br />

to stop in to check for some at<br />

Dress-Smart.<br />

I’d not taken Vittoria to a mall<br />

since she’s been at full toddler<br />

stage, so I was a little apprehensive.<br />

Her behaviour put me in a<br />

false sense of security though.<br />

She was happy to hold my hand<br />

while walking or just play around<br />

the little rides you find in malls.<br />

Particularly a Spot ride, that<br />

yellow dog is a clear favourite<br />

book character currently.<br />

So following her around as she<br />

FAVOURITE: A quiet moment<br />

with Spot before things went<br />

downhill.<br />

explored while Mum looked for<br />

what she needed seemed a good<br />

plan – until Vittoria saw the ice<br />

cream shop.<br />

Oh Lord, why do they always<br />

put pictures of strawberries at<br />

toddler height on those things?<br />

As soon as she saw it she made<br />

a beeline through the legs of<br />

the good folks waiting on their<br />

chilled treat to point at a picture<br />

of strawberries and ice cream<br />

and proudly say “storbies” with a<br />

huge grin on her face.<br />

It was then that I made the fatal<br />

error of saying “no love, we’re<br />

not having ice cream.”<br />

My face must have been as red<br />

as those damn strawberries as<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

I plucked the screaming ball of<br />

rage that had replaced my daughter<br />

from the front of the shop.<br />

I dared not look at the faces of<br />

the other adults, but in my mind<br />

they were very disapproving.<br />

She was top of the lungs going<br />

for it. Writhing, kicking, throwing<br />

her shoes around and trying<br />

to just leave with strangers on<br />

the lift. I fully doubt they wanted<br />

to share the lift with her though,<br />

they looked just as put off as<br />

everyone else. I think, eye contact<br />

was not something I was keen on.<br />

So after what felt like an hour<br />

of this, I get a phone call from<br />

mum saying she was done and<br />

wanted to meet up. To get ice<br />

cream.<br />

Grandparents eh? So after all<br />

that, Vittoria got her strawberry<br />

ice cream and I got a lesson in<br />

how much perceived looks of<br />

disapproval can make you sweat.<br />

I also got ice cream, which took<br />

the edge off a little.<br />

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY<br />

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote<br />

Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit organisation<br />

formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s<br />

most important coastal wetlands. Each week she<br />

introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her<br />

column aims to raise the understanding of the<br />

values and uniqueness of the area.<br />

Masterful fish hunters<br />

THE LITTLE Cormorant/Kawau<br />

paka is one of several cormorant<br />

species found around the estuary<br />

and lower reaches of our rivers.<br />

Who doesn’t enjoy watching<br />

these birds sitting along the estuary,<br />

or perched in trees along river<br />

banks with their wings spread<br />

out? But why do they do this?<br />

Cormorants dive under water to<br />

catch their prey but unlike non<br />

diving birds their feathers are not<br />

as waterproof which allows them<br />

to dive in the first place.<br />

It does mean, however, that<br />

they need to ‘spread their wings<br />

and tail feathers” to dry out<br />

Little Cormorant<br />

after each meal, or they would<br />

lose their body temperature. It’s<br />

amazing how nature provides for<br />

all the different needs of different<br />

birds. The little cormorants<br />

have been observed eating up to<br />

30 small eels and fish each day!<br />

It must be a tough life having<br />

to fish, then dry out that many<br />

times a day.<br />

How can we help the<br />

Cormorant numbers to thrive?<br />

Keep dogs on the lead when<br />

walking along riverbanks and<br />

the estuary edge. Dogs are a huge<br />

threat to birds needing to nest,<br />

rest and feed in peace.<br />
