Preparation key to marathon success

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

the Buller Gorge Marathon on Saturday. ​

• By Jess Gibson

AS SHE gets older, Lisa Brignull

believes she is becoming wiser

with her race preparation.

This may be the reason

why the Sumner Running

Club member clocked her

personal best at the Buller

Gorge Marathon by 30sec on

Saturday.

The full marathon started

at Hawks Crag, while the half

marathon started near the

Ohikati River. Both events

finished at Victoria Square,

Westport.

It was Brignull’s 10th time

competing in the full course

and she finished first in the

45-54 age bracket with a

time of 3hr 4min 52sec.

She was second overall in

the women’s field behind her

friend, Hannah Oldroyd, of

England, who won the entire

event.

Forming

closer

relationship

with port

police aim of

community

board

• By Jess Gibson

COMMUNITY board members

in Banks Peninsula want to build

a stronger relationship with

Lyttelton police.

It is to help mitigate residents’

ongoing concerns over crime

taking place in and around the

harbour by

advocating for

the community

to police.

Said chairwoman

Tori

Peden: “We

want to be proactive

and help Tori Peden

the community

as best we can.

We’d like the police to help us

through that and we’d like to

support the police in what they’re

doing.”

She said the community

board has a good relationship

with Akaroa police and wants

to establish the same in Lyttelton.

from the editor’s desk

LISA BRIGNULL has notched up another

milestone, winning the Buller Gorge

Marathon’s 45-54 age group section,

taking 30sec off her previous best time (see

page 1).

It was Lisa’s 10th Buller marathon, so

no doubt taking half a minute off her previous best was very

satisfying.

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

16km I run with my head, the next 16km I run based on my

training, and the last 10km I run with my heart.”

Other Sumner club members Danny Carmine, Martin Lukes

and Rosie Hay also did well in their respective events.

Also, today more revelations about crime concerns in

Lyttelton (see page 1). It has been an ongoing issue with

residents for some time.

Major safety concerns

on busy Akaroa road

• By Jess Gibson

AKAROA RESIDENT Bryan

Tichborne is concerned it could

take a pedestrian getting hit by a

vehicle before something is done

about an unsafe and heavily

congested road.

On busy days, most of Rue

Balguerie becomes

a single

lane when

bigger vehicles

such as trucks,

boats, buses

and trailers

Nigel Harrison ​

park on both

sides of the

road.

There are also issues with

vehicles speeding along the road

in the mornings and at night,

some by up to 30km/h above the

current 50km/h limit.

Mr Tichborne lives on Rue

Balguerie and is one of many

residents who have wanted

safety improvements to be made

for several years.

“At the moment if you’re at the

bottom of the road driving up

and you see someone coming,

DANGEROUS: Rue Balguerie in Akaroa is reduced to a narrow

single lane when vehicles are parked on both sides.

quite often you have to pull in

100 to 200m from where that

car is to let them though,’’ he

said.

“When you’re walking down

the road and you have to cross it

you’ve got to be really careful.”

He formed a petition about

two years ago which was presented

to city council staff. He

said “nothing was done.”

“I tried again a couple more

times but to be honest, I gave up.

In my last email I said it’s going

to take a nasty accident for

something to be done.”

He said people in the community

share the same concern.

Mr Tichborne believes reducing

the speed limit to 30km/h,

reducing parking to one side of

the road and heightened policing

may alleviate the issues.

He said the issue was bought

up again recently and he has

spoken with Banks Peninsula

Community Board member

Nigel Harrison and resident

Charl Chaney to try and get

something done.

Mr Harrison said there needs

to be “serious planning” about

how to stop the problems.

“It’s creating quite a bit of

anguish to people that are living

on the street.”

The community board has

asked city council staff to look

into the issue and provide feedback

to members on what can

be done.

City council team leader of

traffic operations Stephen Wright

said staff are familiar with the

site and “will visit to undertake

further observations and measurements

in the near future.”

He said these will focus on

parking demand, road widths

and availability of potential

parking locations.

•Parking restrictions, page 4

In Brief

WALKING TRACK

A hazard assessment will be

carried out on a Sumner walking

track to see if it can be repoened

to the public. The Edwin Mouldey

track, which provides a path from

Nayland St to Scarborough Rd,

was closed due to earthquake

damage in 2011. City council staff

will provide information and

advice from the assessment back

to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

WATER RESTRICTIONS STAY

No adjustments have been made

to a total hosing ban in parts of

Banks Peninsula. The city council

introduced level four water

restrictions in Akaroa, Duvauchelle

and Takamatua on February 3.

Call to improve communication

“What we’re asking police is

Lyttelton Community

Association chairman Ken

the community board and police

to improve communication.

“Anything that will improve

[crime] is a good thing.”

City council head of

community support, governance

said police have been asked to

attend a board briefing and have

indicated they can attend one on

May 4.

board would like police to

were sufficient for now, but

police would judge that over

Car parking to be removed near boat ramp

• By Jess Gibson

VEHICLES WILL no longer be

able to park along a stretch of

road near a busy boating spot in

Takamatua.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board approved a no stopping

restriction on both sides of

Quail Cres, between Kingfisher

Rd and McReas Rd, at its meeting

on Monday.

The city council advised

members to pass the decision

following concerns from the

Takamatua Ratepayers Association

that parked vehicles were

obstructing traffic.

A staff report said the move

will ease congestion on what is

a narrow and steep residential

road.

It will also prevent vehicles

from parking on the road shoulder

of Quail Cres, uphill of the

Takamatua boat ramp, which is

affecting vehicle access.

There are some concerns from

staff that the restrictions will

cause parked vehicles to be displaced

onto other nearby sections

of road with an unknown effect.

However, there is a typically

low parking demand most days

and there is other public parking

available.

Signs and markings, including

yellow lines, are set to be

implemented within the next

four weeks.

Water

restrictions

are in place

Level 4 water restrictions are now in place

for Akaroa, Duvauchelle and Takamatua.

This means no outdoor water use.

We’ve made this decision as local streams

are very low and we’re expecting hot, dry

weather to continue. For more information,

Part closing Summit Rd

• By Louis Day

PARTS OF Summit Rd could

public consultation.

“We have not made any

decisions to go into consultation

to close it but it needs to be part

The city council consulted

on the Summit Rd speed limit

last year and decided to reduce

the limit from Godley Head to

and 70km/h to 60km/h. It

decided against imposing any

Rare book set

gifted to Lyttelton

A RARE book set celebrating

the history of Canterbury will be

returned to its home in Lyttelton.

The John Robert Godley Memorial

Trust published ‘Godley

Gifts’ in a limited edition of only

100 copies, each signed by former

prime minister Helen Clark.

Each hand-numbered and

hand-dedicated set contains

three volumes, including a

number of essays, watercolours

and an exact replica copy of New

Zealand’s first illustrated children’s

book, called Seadrift.

The artists of Godley Gifts

were early entrepreneur James

Edward FitzGerald and the

contemporary actor and writer

David McPhail.

Canterbury’s founder John

Robert Godley and his family

were waiting in Lyttelton on the

morning of December 16, 1850

when the first immigrant ship arrived

from England.

The first person ashore was Mr

FitzGerald, who fell into Godley’s

arms – the emotion of the moment

was said to be overwhelming

to both.

Because of this, Mr FitzGerald

wrote and illustrated two of

Godley Gifts three volumes,

gifting one to Mr Godley, and

GIFTED: Brent Rawstron,

Dorothee Jansen and Haydn

Rawstron (the John Robert

Godley Memorial Trustees) with

‘Godley Gifts’ no.50 ​

the other to Godley’s little son

Arthur.

Mr McPhail has written the

third volume of the set, a collection

of brilliantly observed

anecdotal essays.

The trust is gifting book set

number 50 to the Lyttelton community

at 3pm on Sunday.

The public event will be held

in the St Saviour’s Chapel at Holy

Trinity Church, 17 Winchester St.

It will be attended by Deputy

Mayor and Banks Peninsula

councillor Andrew Turner and

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson.

chance romance

• By Jess Gibson

SHE WAS from Sumner,

he was from North

Canterbury.

They had just met and

got talking at the central

bus interchange on Lichfield

St about 1.30am last

Sunday while waiting to

catch separate

trips home

after a night in

town.

But as they

were getting

to know each

other, it was

time to part

ways.

Following a bout of

Roe van

der Merwe

regret over not getting the

man’s phone number, the

woman turned to her bus

driver for help when she

got off the bus.

That bus driver was Roe

van der Merwe, who is also

the co-ordinator for the

new ‘Midnight Express’

Sumner service which

started on January 26.

He now remembers

nothing about his passenger,

except that she was 23

years old, blonde, and lives

in Sumner.

“When she got off in

Sumner she was like ‘I

know I should have done

this then, but I’m just going

to put myself out there.

Can you please call the

Rangiora bus?’

“So I called up the Rangiora

bus, the driver passed

her phone to the guy and

I passed my phone to [the

woman] and they had a

THINGS HAVE been

running smoothly for a

new bus service which

takes party goers from the

city to Sumner.

Bentley Transport or

Christchurch Shuttles and

Tours started a six-month

trial running the “Midnight

Express” Sumner

service on January 26.

It departs from the

Christchurch Bus Interchange

on Lichfield St and

follows the same route

as Metro’s Purple Line at

know if anything eventuated from two strangers

meeting at the central bus interchange.

were exchanged.

“According to the Rangiora

bus driver, the guy was

“quite chuffed” when he

found out she wanted his

number.”

Now, two “emotionally

invested” bus drivers want

to know if their matchmaking

skills have paid off.

Mr van der Merwe told

the woman to get in contact

with Bentley Transport

or Christchurch Shuttles

and Tours, which run the

1.15, 2.15 and 3.15 am on

Sundays.

Redcliffs resident Topsy

Rule had initial concerns

about the service, as she

experienced issues with a

similar service which was

operating before the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Passengers would make

noise and vomit when getting

off at stops along the

bus route.

But she said there have

been no problems so far

and she has heard no negative

feedback from other

Midnight Express lines, to

let someone know if anything

came of the brief but

memorable encounter.

“We are still waiting to

hear from them to see if

they’ve gone on their first

date yet.”

Kris Tynan responds to

last week’s article about

bins overflowing at Taylors

Mistake Beach

First of all, big thanks to the

Taylors Mistake lifeguards who

pick up stray bits of rubbish

from their beautiful beach. Great

to hear that happens.

I am frequently at the beach

in the mornings either before or

after the council workers collect

the rubbish.

Invariably, after a very warm

day there will be too much rubbish

for the bins available and it

has almost always been placed

next to the bins.

Bigger bins are clearly required

but it seems like the Bigbelly

Bins are on their way to solve

this problem. It is true that after

a windy day lighter rubbish will

have blown around a bit but that

is understandable, and again the

Big Bellies should solve that.

In my opinion and experience

90 per cent of visitors to Taylors

Mistake are responsible with

their rubbish and I would like

to comment that your headlines

‘Taylors Mistake being treated

as a rubbish tip’ and ‘Taylors

Mistake a dumping ground’

are both inaccurate and over

dramatic.

Then again they achieved their

purpose of getting attention and

inspiring comment … so I guess

as media that’s your job.

Grateful for the beautiful

place we have the privilege to

inhabit.

Readers respond to

last week’s article about

the completion of repairs

to the Moncks Bay tram

shelter after several

months of delays

Gordon Macadam – We

have a problem with the time

taken for city contractors. While

[it was] understandable immediately

after the quakes, it is no

longer acceptable for projects to

take so long.

The conditions of city issued

contracts should be publicly

available. The financial stuff

can remain confidential but

only contractors that have the

resources to promptly attend to

contracts should get to tender.

Contract conditions should

include:

• Once started council contracts

are to be worked every

business day.

• The management team of

a job should have their name

available to the ratepayers.

• The reason for any delay in

progress should be posted on the

job for passers by to see.

• Traffic management that disrupts

traffic should be in place

only when work is in progress or

the hazard is in existence.

• All traffic management systems

that disrupt traffic should

display the name and phone

number of the person responsible

for that system.

We have tolerated for too long

a system where contractors can

juggle multiple contracts with

a minimum of labour and poor

project management which can

be covered up by shifting the

team else where when a planning

oversight is exposed.

Liz Barrie – There were three

men working on this project

when ever I went past, so why

did it take so long? I wonder how

much it cost.

Linen and leather

at Stoddart Cottage

LINEN GARMENTS and leather

accessories handcrafted by

Lithuanian-born Elena Chomic

will be on display at Diamond

Harbour’s Stoddart Cottage

Gallery this month.

In this solo exhibition, Chomic,

of Diamond Harbour continues

her birth-country traditions with

original design and contemporary

style.

Linen, leather,

wood and

wool are common

materials

for folk art and

craft in Lithuania

and there

Elena Chomic

is a long and

strong tradition

of using locally

produced linen textiles for clothing

and household furnishing.

Colours from nature such as

warmly glowing amber, ochre

clay, forest greens and sea blues

are preferred for daily life, even

the brighter blue of linen flax

flowers.

Chomic was born and raised

near the Baltic Sea and at school

she was taught how to work

with linen textiles, to weave and

embroider, and to make objects

from leather and wood.

She has continued to work with

TRADITIONAL: Lithuanianborn

Elena Chomic’s

handcrafted garments will be

available to view this month

in a new solo exhibition at

Stoddart Cottage Gallery. ​

these materials throughout her

life.

“It’s been six years since I arrived

in New Zealand and today

it sometimes seems to me that I

was born here,” Chomic said.

Stoddart Cottage is open to the

public every Friday, Saturday and

Sunday from 10am until 4pm.

Handling screaming in public

PRIOR TO last week, I’d

managed to contain the majority

of Vittoria’s toddler tantrums to

within the realm of my house

or the house of a relative (or an

aeroplane when she was four

months old, but that was a long

time ago).

Now, I know the feeling of

having complete strangers look at

you in horror, because they likely

believe you are either kidnapping

a toddler, or murdering it.

Vittoria’s Nan overnighted at

our place last week to both make

it easier to get to her work shifts

and to allow me to go to dragon

boat training by looking after

Vittoria.

In an effort to repay my mum’s

help I offered to play driver on

some errands for her.

To my eternal gratitude, my

mum’s a keen bargain hunter,

so while we were on the errands

in Hornby we, of course, had

to stop in to check for some at

Dress-Smart.

I’d not taken Vittoria to a mall

since she’s been at full toddler

stage, so I was a little apprehensive.

Her behaviour put me in a

false sense of security though.

She was happy to hold my hand

while walking or just play around

the little rides you find in malls.

Particularly a Spot ride, that

yellow dog is a clear favourite

book character currently.

So following her around as she

FAVOURITE: A quiet moment

with Spot before things went

downhill.

explored while Mum looked for

what she needed seemed a good

plan – until Vittoria saw the ice

cream shop.

Oh Lord, why do they always

put pictures of strawberries at

toddler height on those things?

As soon as she saw it she made

a beeline through the legs of

the good folks waiting on their

chilled treat to point at a picture

of strawberries and ice cream

and proudly say “storbies” with a

huge grin on her face.

It was then that I made the fatal

error of saying “no love, we’re

not having ice cream.”

My face must have been as red

as those damn strawberries as

VITTORIA

& Matt

I plucked the screaming ball of

rage that had replaced my daughter

from the front of the shop.

I dared not look at the faces of

the other adults, but in my mind

they were very disapproving.

She was top of the lungs going

for it. Writhing, kicking, throwing

her shoes around and trying

to just leave with strangers on

the lift. I fully doubt they wanted

to share the lift with her though,

they looked just as put off as

everyone else. I think, eye contact

was not something I was keen on.

So after what felt like an hour

of this, I get a phone call from

mum saying she was done and

wanted to meet up. To get ice

cream.

Grandparents eh? So after all

that, Vittoria got her strawberry

ice cream and I got a lesson in

how much perceived looks of

disapproval can make you sweat.

I also got ice cream, which took

the edge off a little.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit organisation

formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s

most important coastal wetlands. Each week she

introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her

column aims to raise the understanding of the

values and uniqueness of the area.

Masterful fish hunters

THE LITTLE Cormorant/Kawau

paka is one of several cormorant

species found around the estuary

and lower reaches of our rivers.

Who doesn’t enjoy watching

these birds sitting along the estuary,

or perched in trees along river

banks with their wings spread

out? But why do they do this?

Cormorants dive under water to

catch their prey but unlike non

diving birds their feathers are not

as waterproof which allows them

to dive in the first place.

It does mean, however, that

they need to ‘spread their wings

and tail feathers” to dry out

Little Cormorant

(Kawau paka ​)

after each meal, or they would

lose their body temperature. It’s

amazing how nature provides for

all the different needs of different

birds. The little cormorants

have been observed eating up to

30 small eels and fish each day!

It must be a tough life having

to fish, then dry out that many

times a day.

How can we help the

Cormorant numbers to thrive?

Keep dogs on the lead when

walking along riverbanks and

the estuary edge. Dogs are a huge

threat to birds needing to nest,

rest and feed in peace.

Who we are

Allied Press Limited employs over 450 people on a permanent

basis across its 15 sites in the South Island. We operate across

multiple media platforms (print, online, digital) delivering news,

information and entertainment through our various regional

and city publications, including printing and publishing of

newspapers from our print centre in Dunedin and a commercial

print facility in Alexandra.

The role

Reporting to the Operations Manager, the main purpose of

the position is to ensure smooth running of our newspaper,

commercial publication and facility maintenance.

Some of the key accountabilities include:

• Production remains uninterrupted.

• Production equipment availability is maximised.

• Preventative maintenance is prioritised to ensure minimal

downtime.

The business has just invested in a major upgrade to the

electrical/electronic systems on the printing press, scheduled to

commence in the New Year. This presents the ideal opportunity

to learn from the installation and commissioning engineers to

enable the successful candidate to hit the ground running.

Your skills and experience

We are looking for a registered Electrician ideally from an

Industrial background holding a current practising licence. The

ideal candidate would be competent and confident in using

computers and experienced in PLC’s, Analogue/Digital control

and AC/DC motor drive systems. Although not essential,

knowledge of Goss Press and Ferag mailroom will be a bonus.

Further details

This is a full-time permanent position working the day shift from

Monday to Friday, with rostered ‘On call’.

As well as a competitive salary, we offer you a great team

environment, minimal commute time, being based within

Dunedin city, professional development opportunities, job

security and opportunity to grow. Training and support will be

provided for the successful applicant.

If you think this role is for you, please apply by way of CV and

a covering letter. Informal inquiries about the role are welcome

and should be directed to raja.chakrabarti@alliedpress.co.nz

A copy of the position description can be requested from HR

at recruitment@alliedpress.co.nz

Applications will close on Thursday 13 February 2020.

All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

New Zealand to apply for this role.
