Star Media, a division of Allied Press Ltd

PO Box 1467, Christchurch


of under-seige Akaroa

restaurant Bully Hayes, has

shown what you can do on

the bounce back.

When the controversy

broke last week about Hayes’

alleged slave trading, abduction

and other deeds during

the 1800s, Jones was put on

the spot.

Initially, he told media he

might think about changing

the name of the restaurant

“further down the track” but

at this stage, it was “not really

a story”, and he declined

to comment further.

Jones must have slept on it,

because the next day he was

talking, indicating a change

of restaurant name and giving

the public an opportunity to

have input into that.

On pages 4 and 5 today we

find out more about Jones.

Iconic Bully Hayes moving forward

Akaroa’s iconic restaurant

Bully Hayes will be

renamed after almost

25 years, following an

academic’s claims the

current name honours

slavery. Jess Gibson talks

to owner Wayne Jones

about his business and

the changes ahead

How did you come to own

Bully Hayes?

We bought the business over

17 years ago, but it was started

about 24 years ago. It was an old

state house on the property and

part of it still remains which

is built into the building. Two

developers built it and ran it as a

restaurant initially.

We also bought another

business that we renamed and

rebranded about 11 years or so

ago, L’Escargot Rouge, which we

set up as a sister business to Bully

Hayes. Me and my wife, we both

own the businesses.

How did the restaurant

become so popular?

It’s probably because it’s a place

that has been here so long. It’s

been here nearly 25 years now.

A lot of restaurants come and

go over a very short period of

time. Bullys has been one of the

places that hasn’t. Although it

initially went through two or

three owners in the first four or

five years.

I’ve been here for 17 and a half

years nearly, and we’ve sort of

built a brand around giving good

customer service, looking after

people and having good food

and a great environment.

What have been some of your

best memories so far?

I work pretty much full-time

hands-on in the kitchen and on

the premises, and for me, the

enjoyment is the hospitality.

I enjoy making people happy

and talking to people, making

sure we’re serving good food and

looking after people.

There have been lots of highs

and lows we’ve gone through.

COSTLY: Bully Hayes owner Wayne Jones said it will cost between $20-$30,000 to rename his

“heavily branded” restaurant in Akaroa.


We had a fire next door which

nearly burnt us down one time.

We sort of just got ourselves back

on our feet and then we were hit

with the first earthquake.

Then we got ourselves on our

feet again and we got hit by the

second earthquake.

We’ve lived through a lot

of trials and tribulations over

the years but we’ve always got

ourselves through and each time

we’ve come back stronger.

My enjoyment comes from

people coming in and then

always walking out the door

saying “thank you very much, we

greatly enjoyed it.”

As a restaurant owner that’s

probably the greatest gratification,

you could ever receive.

Why did you feel it was the

right time to rebrand your


The name change is extremely

disappointing for the majority of

our followers.

I mean some are very supportive,

but the majority are

very sorry for us to have to go

through this whole situation.

But for us, to move forward,

we’ve got to look at this in a

positive light and to do that we

want to put it out there to try and

make it positive and hopefully

try and keep everybody happy

by giving everybody the input to

looking for a new name.

We’re not going to lose our

brand, Bully Hayes, as well.

That’s very important to us and

it’s very important to our locals

and our market.

I don’t want it to be seen as a

big back down, I do want it to

be seen as progress in moving

forward and changing the name

is probably a very minor part of

what we’re going to try and do.

For us, there’s still the brand

and what we will do is probably

tell more of the story.

In fact, I’ve been contacted by

a number of actual historians

and biographers of Bully Hayes,

and there’s a lot of literature out


Some of the most extensive

work, Joan Druett has put out.

I got an email yesterday with

a Niuean Government website

article about Bully Hayes. It

was a very long article and very

well written, it actually debunks

majority of the things people are

saying. The majority of those

things are not true.

Joan Druett says in her books

a lot of it is myth, there’s nothing

confirmed and a lot of it is

hearsay. The sources that some of

the stuff is coming from are very

misleading or not truly accurate.

While it may be out there

and people love hearing the

dramatised version of things and

they like to hear the blood and

the gore and everything else, the

majority of it is not true.

I think people should be aware

of that.

Joan Druett sent a lot of stuff

to the media and none of that

has been used because people

like to hear the dramatised version

of things.

When people read it, the ones

that were more shocked about

it will actually think a little bit

more about it – that in fact it isn’t

as big a story as it’s all been made

out to be.

There are a lot of followers of

what’s been happening who have

contacted me who are actually

very disappointed in the way this

has been portrayed.

What are some of the best

names you have received so far?

I’ve had a number which have

been based around my name

because I’m a public figure

that’s here seven days a week

(laughs). People have suggested

the Jonesy’s, Wayne’s World and

there has also been a number of

wordplays on the current Bully


I’ve had a couple of writers

ring me and suggest a couple

of things like Hully Bayes and

Bully Stays, and also there’s been

a lot of references to hometown

heroes, Frank Worsley has been

one of the noted.

Also, there’s been references

to the nautical theme and references

to the French. There’s been

a wide list of names that have

been put out there.

We’re gonna put it all together

and we’ll put it out to a large

group of regulars who are here

through the week and see what

their preference is.

The strongest suggestion that’s

in the box, by the biggest majority,

is to keep the name. Also

by email and Facebook it’s the


The Facebook post has created

a massive tirade of views from all


A big chunk of it is about not

giving in and a big chunk of it is

that Bully Hayes is Bully Hayes.

Regardless, that’s the name

they know and the name they

recognise, and it’s the name they

want to stay.

about 70 per cent of what

we would normally be at

not trading bad enough

How long have you lived

in Akaroa and what do

you like most about living


I actually spent a lot of

time here as a teenager, I

had friends who had baches

in Wainui.

Then I moved up to

Wellington and I studied

hospitality management.

I ended up working in

Wellington for 17 to 18

years and travelling overseas

working in Europe.

Then I came back to

Wellington and worked up

there for a couple of years

and decided it was time

to look at our roots and

DEBUNKED: Wayne Jones has been contacted by

several historians who say that many of the claims

made about Bully Hayes are not true or have been


we sort of looked around

places we’d had an association

with, and Akaroa

really appealed.

It had that nice seaside,

quiet small-town (vibe) that

we really enjoyed when we

worked and lived in France

for a couple of years.

So Akaroa was very

much the logical place.

We found a business and

moved here 17 and a half

years ago, and we haven’t

moved since.

My wife, Joanna and I

also wanted to find a nice

environment to have our

family and bring them

up, and Akaroa has really

proved to be the perfect

place for that.

What do you do when

you’re not working?

I have three boys who

are all at Boys’ High in


My time off is usually in

the winter, and with winter

sports I enjoy spending

time with the kids and

their rugby and sporting

endeavours in Christchurch.

That, and skiing with the

family. Every year we go

away for a week or two and

that’s usually my breakaway.

Other than that my

time is pretty much based

around the business. It

is very much a hands-on

business if you want to

be successful and make it

work and keep going.

If you could choose

three people to have

dinner with at your

restaurant, who would

you choose?

Graham Henry would

stand out to be one.

We actually did a rugby

club fundraiser dinner last

year and he was a guest


I had a chat with him

afterwards and he was a

“wealth of knowledge” sort

of guy.

Peter Gordon would be

one on the food side of it.

His knowledge and creativity

in using New Zealand

as a sounding block for

putting food out around the

world - he’s pretty much the

one man who’s conquered it

in my mind.

And I think Richie

McCaw. I’ve had a strong

background in rugby,

following and playing it

through the years.

He’s got the gift that

makes him the most

likeable guy.

Redcliffs School rejoins its community

After nine

long years,



an entire of


of children

outside of their home

suburb, Te Raekura/

Redcliffs School principal

Rose McInerney reflects

on the school’s pending

return home on Monday

WHEN WE first moved offsite

back in 2011, it was a temporary

move. We thought a few months,

perhaps a year at the most. None

of us could have possibly imagined

the road that lay ahead.

It is with immense relief that

can we now put that journey

behind us, moving into our

wonderful new school with a renewed

sense of energy. The sense

of both excitement and relief in

the community is palpable.

This community spirit is

something we’ve witnessed

throughout our time away. We’ve

never been disconnected from

Redcliffs, and we have had such

enormous support from our


So many of you have helped us.

Whether it’s been by marching

alongside us to show the Minister

how we all felt, writing letters or

postcards to politicians, signing

our petition, donating to help with

our legal fees and other expenses,

sending those emails, texts and

care packages – your help has

meant so much. Thank you.

Our return is down to the

tenacity and doggedness of

many, many wonderful people,

volunteering your time and

playing an integral part. It has

all been worthwhile – it will really

be something special to see

Redcliffs children again making

their way to and from school

along our streets.

Te Raekura Redcliffs School

We will be opening under our

new name, Te Raekura Redcliffs

School. Our name translates

literally to ‘The Red Cliffs”, and

reflects the red, glowing headlands

that were an important feature for

Ngāi Tahu when returning from

sea. The name, along with many

others we are already using across

the school, was gifted to the school

by Mātauraka Mahaanui, an

organisation established to include

Māori and Ngāi Tahu content in

Christchurch’s rebuilt schools after

the earthquakes.

Redcliffs steadily rebuilds

In February 2011, we had a roll

of just over 400 children. Many

of these families left Redcliffs

while their homes were being

rebuilt, and others moved away

for a range of reasons.

We’ve seen steady roll growth

since our return to the suburb

was guaranteed, and I’m pleased

to say that Te Raekura Redcliffs

School will open with a first

day roll of 210 pupils. Our new

school has been built for 300

children, and we have a masterplan

for growth to 400.

A lasting legacy

As a tribute to the school he

was so closely involved in saving,

former Board of Trustees member

Mark Robberds has crafted a

stone wall at the school entrance.

We are so grateful to Mark for

all he did to support the school’s

return. His wall represents the

legacy of a succession of board

members, school staff, and the

wider school community, who

worked tirelessly to ensure Redcliffs

retained its primary school.

Celebrating our return

The children’s first day of

school is on Monday. As our

move back to Redcliffs draws

near, we have been planning how

we will celebrate our return and

officially open our wonderful

new school.

Next Thursday, the school

will be officially opened by

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern,

with entertainment by Redcliffs

students (and supported by

Dave Dobbyn!). Given the

capacity of our new hall, this

event will be for invited guests.

We know many more in our

community would love to

take part. We will be live streaming

the event to our Facebook

page, which you can follow – it’s

called ‘Support Redcliffs School’.

Redcliffs School open days

We warmly invite you to book a

place for a tour of the new school

during one of our four open days.

They will all be held at 2pm

on July 2, July 19, July 31 and

August 2.

Numbers are limited, and

open day bookings are required

by phoning or emailing the

school office with subject title

‘Open Day’ and the date you

wish to attend. Email: office@ or phone

An enormous thank you to

our community, from us all,

for your support over these

past nine years. I know that the

Mission’s food bank is now $3400

by Ferrymead Lions Club.

A cheque was presented to

Christchurch City Missioner

Matthew Mark on Wednesday,

the money was raised through

pea straw sales in Redcliffs in

Sumner last month.

Club member Bill Newsom

said the events were very successful

as it sold more than 900 bales

of pea straw, 250 bags of compost

and “a lot” of Nitrophoska fertiliser.

“I would like to thank the

this where we can give money to

Mr Mark said the mission has

seen an “unprecedented increase”

“When we’ve got a community

proactively gone out and done

THE FANTAIL is surely one

of the most well known and

loved birds. Who does not enjoy

watching this tiny bird with its

distinctive fanned tail, happy

chattering and curiosity causing

it to come within arm’s reach?

You may have even been lucky

enough to have seen a black

fantail, which only make up five

per cent of the fantails. Don’t let

them scare you when you do see

one, it really is only a myth when

you hear that they are harbingers

of bad luck.

Both male and female share

the task of incubating the eggs

but as soon as they hatch the female

will leave it up to the male

to feed the chicks, as she will

leave to start building another

nest for the next clutch of eggs.

When the chicks from the

first nest can fend for themselves

the male will find her and share

incubation, followed by feeding

the chicks and so on and so on.

They can nest up to four times

every season.

Note that the male will need to

feed the chicks every 10min, so

he is kept super busy doing this

feeding by himself. Those nests

by the way are super-soft, comfy

and cleverly constructed using


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.

Harsh weather not kind to fantail

DELICATE: The fantail does not cope very well in harsh winters

as, being so small and fragile, they can not survive harsh frosts.


moss, rotten wood fibres, hair,

dried grass and woven together

with cobwebs.

The fantail does not cope

very well in harsh winters as

unfortunately, being so small

and fragile they can not survive

harsh frosts. For this reason,

don’t be surprised if on a frosty

day you open your woodshed

or garage to find fantails

sheltering from the cold.

How can we help the fantail to

thrive? Controlling rats in your

garden as they are the key predator

of the fantail.

During winter hang or place

a shallow bowl in a tree with

sugary water to give them extra

energy. As they only eat insects

they will not feed from your

birdseed feeder.

What’s your view on:

A proposal to modify the

resource consent process

for work on the reinstatement

of Christ Church Cathedral

The resource consent process can be modified under the

Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Act 2017 (the Act)

by an Order in Council (Order) made by the Governor-General.

Before a final decision is made to recommend the proposed

Order to the Governor-General, the Act requires it to be

tested robustly. This includes seeking your feedback on

an explanation document that sets out:

• an explanation of what the proposal is intended to achieve;

• a description of the proposed effect of the Order; and

• an explanation of why the Minister considers that the Order

is necessary or desirable for the purpose of the Act.

Let us know your views on the explanation document

The document can be viewed and written comment made online


Also, they are available on request from Christchurch City Council

service centres and libraries and the main office of Selwyn and

Waimakariri District Councils during normal business hours.

Anyone can make a written comment but they must

be received by: 5pm Monday, 22 June 2020.
