Peninsula

residents

strong on

fire safety

• By Matt Slaughter

THERE WERE few house fires

in Banks Peninsula compared to

those in Christchurch since 2017.

There were four fires in Akaroa

in 2017 but there have been none

since.

Diamond Harbour has also

only had four and none so far this

year.

Governors Bay has had two

fires, Little River has had three

and Lyttelton has had 10.

By comparison, 666 of the

689 house fires were in Christchurch.

In July, eight-year-old Braydon

Mulligan-Gibson and ninemonth-old

Arianna Mulligan-

Cooke died when the house they

were in on Vivian St, Burwood,

went up in flames.

Robert William Jones, 69,

also died in July after a blaze at

his home in Conservators Rd,

McLeans Island.

Diamond Harbour Volunteer

Fire Brigade chief fire officer Bob

Palmer said the reason why Banks

Peninsula has had so few house

fires since 2017 is likely because

many residents there live rurally

and more mindful of the role they

have to play to prevent fires.

Cooking causes fires

•From page 1

“People in isolated areas are

generally more careful because

they realise they are isolated

and that with

everything they

do in their lives

they’ve got to be

a bit innovative

and a bit more

self-reliant and

got to be able to

Bob Palmer

look after themselves

more than

those who are

squashed into a city where they’ve

got resources all over the place,”

he said.

Palmer said in recent years Fire

Emergency New Zealand has

put more of a push on educating

Banks Peninsula residents

on how to avoid fires, including

when it is and is not safe to carry

out controlled burn-offs.

In his 34 years fighting fires in

the area, Palmer said he only recalls

one or two that have resulted

in fatalities and very few which

have caused injuries.

Unattended cooking has been

by far the most common cause

of house fires in Christchurch

and Banks Peninsula since 2017.

One hundred and fifty eight have

started as a result of this.

Christchurch city has had 120

house fires, the most in this time

period, followed by Wigram with

119 and Spreydon with 102.

Harewood has had 80, Redwood

73 and there have been 72

in the area that Anzac Fire Station

serves.

Other notable causes include

combustible items being placed

too close to heat sources, which

has resulted in 52 house fires.

Short-circuiting caused 31 and

other electrical failures caused 65.

Some of the most unusual

causes include falling asleep while

smoking, which resulted in one

house fire, and an animal, which

also caused one.

Of the 689 house fires, 72 were

deemed as suspicious or unlawful.

House fires resulted in three deaths

and 55 injuries, with the most common

being caused by burns.

Cooking appliances caused the

most fires out of all the equipment

in houses. 63 were caused

by microwaves or ovens and 60

were caused by stovetops.

Lighting features such as lamps

or bulbs started 21 house fires

and, noticeably, battery chargers

caused three and a computer

caused one.

Firefighters have helped 587

people get to safety during house

fires since 2017.

Blast from the past at museum

A WORLD War 2 naval sea

mine has “washed up” at Akaroa

Museum.

After spending many years

bobbing on the Waikato River as

a buoy for a hydro scheme, the

deactivated cast iron oval has

found a new home, dropping

into the museum collection in

recognition of the local harbour’s

defensive minefield history.

Akaroa Museum director

Lynda Wallace said the mine is

the same as those laid across the

harbour in January 1943.

“Akaroa was the only South

Island harbour with mines,” said

Wallace.

“At the height of World War 2,

it was protected by a row of 64

mines, each containing 500lb of

TNT.

“Known as J.L.8, the minefield

was laid out in four loops of 16.

Along with nearby infrastructure,

it formed part of New Zealand’s

strategic coastal defences

during the war.”

The Royal New Zealand Navy

could detonate the controlled

mines from the shore base following

any sighting of an enemy

vessel – including a submarine –

creeping into the harbour.

Costing £18,240 and completed

in 1943, the Akaroa Battery

included roads, a jetty, gun

emplacements, searchlights and

an accommodation block, along

with the minefield.

“Today, you can still see the

old depot – a large building

across the harbour from Akaroa

in Tikao Bay – built to store the

sea mines,” said Wallace.

However, the Akaroa minefield

soon became a “white elephant.”

NEWSLINE ​

More than a year after the

minelayer Alsey and the base

ship Atreus put down the field,

the Defence Department downgraded

the threat of an invasion

by sea and ordered the navy to

blow up the mines.

“Some older Akaroa residents

can still recall the huge explosions

that echoed around the

harbour on February 21, 1944,”

said Wallace.

“All but two of the mines were

detonated. However, the navy

concluded that those mines had

probably flooded and would not

pose a risk to shipping.

“Just a few years later, a fishing

boat working off the heads

of Akaroa Harbour reported a

floating mine. It was soon sunk

by the navy offshore.”

Wallace said the sea mine is

being stored behind the scenes

in readiness for a new museum

exhibition that will capture the

story for new generations.

Resurgence for Sumner rugby

• By Chris Barclay

WHILE NEW Zealand Rugby

plots in accordance with World

Cup cycles, the brains trust

behind Sumner’s resurgent Colts

side took an even longer term

view in the quest for success.

Realising there was a competent

group of teens at the club in

2014, they also knew they faced

the age-old issue of making sure

the boys returned to play after

their secondary schooling.

So club management formulated

a plan to ensure the boys,

many of whom had played

alongside each other as five-yearolds,

were coaxed back in a bid

to win a championship.

“The thing with Sumner is it’s

a great junior club with plenty of

numbers, but because we have

no real recognised rugby high

school in our area the kids go

off to school and turn out for

Boys’ High or Christ’s College

or wherever,” explained Richie

Dimbleby, who coached the boys

when they were in primary.

“And once they’ve played their

first XV rugby they don’t come

back to the club, they’re snapped

up by those town clubs.”

So the club organised an annual

get together between players

and their parents to maintain

friendships during the five-year

hiatus.

SUCCESS: The bulk of Sumner’s under-13 squad in 2014

returned to the club in 2020 to team up and take out the

Metro Premier Colts competition.

“We thought they’d end up

being pretty good so we thought

‘Why don’t we try and keep

them all together so when they

finish school they come back

and play their colts rugby for

Sumner,” Dimbleby said.

The “Sumner Storm 2020

strategy gained traction when

a dozen of the boys fronted for

pre-season training in December,

where Sumner life member

and Crusaders coach Scott

Robertson oversaw some early

drills, which drew interest from

potential players.

With the old boys in tow,

manager Ryan Turner and head

coach Gareth D’Almeida recruited

the rest of the 30-strong

roster for Sumner’s ambitious

return to the Metro Premier

Colts competition.

“It all came together better

than we’d ever dreamed of, we

were aiming for top four,” Dimbleby

admitted.

Ultimately Sumner achieved

that goal before eliminating New

Brighton and thrashing Lincoln

University 33-0 in the September

12 decider at St Leonards Square.

The squad disperses after another

celebration this weekend,

though the game is far from

over.

All but one of the key players

– flanker Alby O’Shannessey has

returned to the US on a rugby

scholarship at Washington State

University – are eligible to defend

the title, though some have

been set other goals by the club.

A batch will graduate to a rebuilding

Metro Premier division

one side, which struggled this

season after Covid-19 sabotaged

their usual ploy of signing overseas

players.

The situation was so dire

Sumner had to default their final

round game because they could

not field 23 fit personnel.

“Four or five will move up to

our senior team and we’ll keep

feeding in more kids from the

bottom, keep building the club

that way,” Dimbleby said.

Ollie Lewis, a New Zealand

secondary schools rep and now

member of the Crusaders academy,

is among those earmarked

for promotion.

So the title was especially

meaningful for the first fiveeighth

who reunited with

kindergarten mate Josh Stenberg

and fellow Sumner under-6s

Harri Langworthy and Mitch

Cox.

“It’s probably been my most

enjoyable year with just a bunch

of good mates playing footy.

There’s no pressure going on, it

was almost like we were playing

junior rugby again,” he said.

Mt Pleasant

residence

for Chu

• By Louis Day

CATHERINE CHU has shown

her commitment to becoming MP

for Banks Peninsula by buying

a house in the electorate but

has insisted her duties as a city

councillor still take

priority.

Chu, who is currently

the city councillor

representing

the Riccarton Ward,

attracted criticism

when it was announced

she would

be running for

Catherine

Chu

Parliament only eight weeks into

her tenure on the council.

The 24-year-old, who had lived

in Riccarton all her life, said she

has moved to Mt Pleasant to show

how serious she was about becoming

the MP for the peninsula.

“I think leading up to the

election, because I really want

to represent the community,

I thought it was important to

actually live in the community,”

she said.

However, she insisted fulfilling

her duties as a councillor

remained a priority for her.

“I have always said, even when I

am campaigning, my priority is to

be a councillor for Riccarton.”

Follow whitebaiting rules

FINES: Keep within the gear limits if you go whitebaiting.

PEOPLE ARE reminded to follow

the conservation laws protecting

native species in the peninsula

region as the Department of

Conservation’s new enforcement

system rolls out.

The wider region is one of the

pilot areas for the new enforcement

system which allows DOC

to issue infringement notices,

as well as the existing tools of a

warning letter or prosecution.

Infringement notices can come

with a $200 to $800 fine. They do

result in a criminal conviction.

Repeat offenders or those committing

serious offences can still

be prosecuted.

Mahaanui operations manager

Andy Thompson said the region

features special places which are

home to amazing species, such as

the Akaroa and Pohatu marine

reserves, and the Kaitorete dunelands.

“Our two marine reserves

are home to iconic South

Island species like rawaru/blue

cod, paua and koura/crayfish.

Pohatu is home to the largest

little blue penguin colony on

mainland New Zealand, and both

reserves are visited by endangered

hector’s dolphins.

“Pohatu is also a popular recreational

spot, with many people

visiting to enjoy the biodiversity

offered in the reserve. The notake

rules help to conserve this

ecosystem.”

Most people understand the

rules and are happy to follow

them, but there are some instances

where people did not, he said.

“Some of the most common

offences we see are in relation

to dogs and wildlife, fishers

breaking whitebaiting rules, and

people disturbing the rare birds

that live on our braided rivers.

“The highest number of prosecutions

is in relation to the marine

reserves at Banks Peninsula.”

DOC has installed new signs

on the cliffs above the marine

reserve, to make the boundaries

clearer. There are also improved

signs at boat ramps.

“We want to educate people in

the first instance, but for those

who do continue to break the

rules, there is now a chance you

will be fined.”

Whitebaiting season had

started and fishers were reminded

to follow the rules, including

keeping within the gear limits

and staying within 10m of their

net.

“We do have warranted officers

out there in the field, keeping an

eye to make sure people are following

the rules.

Offences will be recorded in

DOC’s new enforcement system

database, helping to build a

national picture of complaince

across the country.

Terraces added

to heritage list

HISTORICAL: Stoddart

Weirs, in the Harbour Sports

Ground at Stoddart Point,

have been added to the

New Zealand Heritage List

as a Category 2 historic site.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

A PAIR of straight terraces in

Diamond Harbour have been

recognised as historically and

archaeologically significant.

Stoddart Weirs, in the Harbour

Sports Ground at Stoddart Point,

have been added to the New Zealand

Heritage List as a Category 2

historic site.

The two straight terraces in

a gully are the remains of two

weirs built in 1862 by early pakeha

settler Mark Stoddart.

They created a pond as a reliable

water supply for his stock

and horticultural business.

“The weirs tell an important

story of how early pakeha settlers

modified their environment,”

Heritage New Zealand senior

heritage assessment adviser Robyn

Burgess said.

The upper weir was “unusually”

constructed of local volcanic

rocks and was wide enough

to drive a horse and cart across,

Burgess said.

The lower weir is of earth and

stone.

The weirs are connected to

Diamond Harbour’s oldest building,

Stoddart Cottage, home to

Stoddart and his wife, Anna.

Their orchards, extensive vegetable

gardens and crops relied

on the weirs’ water.

Heritage New Zealand senior

archaeologist Frank van der Heijden

assessed the site as having

moderate to high archaeological

values.

If investigated using

archaeological methods, they

could provide significant

information on the construction

methods used by early pakeha

settlers,” he said.

THE AVON-Heathcote

Canterbury, and many

more were to be expected

over the next few weeks.

Godwits return to

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.

Safe home for gull hard to find

THE BLACK billed gull/

tarapuka is found only

in New Zealand and is

unfortunately the most

endangered of all the

world’s gull species.

Classified as ‘nationally

critical’ we may well loose

this species all together.

THey normally nest

in colonies in braided

rivers but for some reason

(believed to be frightened

away from braided rivers

due to floods, four-wheeldrive

vehicles and motorcycle

disturbance) a colony

established itself on the

islands in Charlesworth

reserve four years ago

believing this to be

sanctuary.

However, its nesting

attempt was a failure due

to the savage attack of

the chicks by the much

larger black backed gull

whose numbers have

increased manyfold

since colonisation and

its consequent waste

produced.

Quite happy to scavenge

in landfills near the

estuary, it thrived here

and an has now become a

major threat to other bird

species by preying on eggs

and chicks.

THe black billed gulls

tried again to raise chicks

in Charlesworth Reserve

three years ago but were

again, not very successful

due to predation of

the black backed gulls

although some chicks

managed to survive.

Is it then that out of

desperation they decided

to try to establish up a

colony in the central city

among the debris of a half

demolished building in

Armagh St?

Not exactly an ideal

nor natural nesting site

UNDER

THREAT:

The black

billed

gull is

struggling

to survive

as a

species.

PHOTO:

CLIVE

COLLINS

although very popular

attracting many people to

peer through the windows

of the fenced off area to

view these unique and

threatened birds.

It is hoped that the ‘powers

to be’ agree to adopt a

proposed black backed gull

management plan around

the estuary to provide the

species a chance to return

to the estuary to nest.

We can only hope that

with predator control of

cats, rats, hedgehog, stoats

and the black backed gull

we may see these stunning

but sadly threatened black

bills nest successfully

around our estuary again.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

EXCITING

SURGICAL

TIMES AHEAD

What is “dull”. No such day at McMaster & Heap. Each

day brings new excitement, a large, interesting caseload

and complex cases to work through and solve. We

are extremely fortunate to have a close team of 9

veterinarians who enjoy collaboration, problem solving

and just helping each other out – all for the patients

benefit. Having a surgical specialist (Dr Helen Milner)

on board means we get referred the more challenging,

complicated, often acute trauma cases that are too

difficult to manage in a private practice. Your whole team

needs to be passionate about this referral process which

over the years has

grown substantially.

Twenty Years ago

it started with just

Steve seeing eye

referrals for the

South island and

it has grown to

include specialists

in Ultrasonography

and Referral Surgery.

Hence why we

recently built a new

addition to allow

us the space and

resources to grow

our referral business.

It is definitely cool to

see these complexes

surgeries happening

under our very own

roof.

We see referral

consultations 7 days

a week if required.

Often the calls come

late in the evening

or over the weekend

so we have systems

in place whereby

the patient can

be seen and the

referral process started. Our whole team helps to ensure

the client feels comfortable and happy with our service

as often these people are meeting us for the first time.

Their pet is our priority though and measures are quickly

taken to make sure their condition is stabilised, they are

not in pain and they are getting the hospital nursing care

they require. Obtaining the entire set of records from the

primary vet clinic is essential for the best deliverance of

care from our end. We need to know what diagnostic tests

have been run and what medications prescribed.

Recently we had 2 very special patients presented with

excellent surgical outcomes.

The first was a 9 year old “Maximus”, a 70kg Dogue de

Bordeaux, who with the expertise of Helen Milner and

Richard Lucy, had his pacemaker replaced as the battery

life was nearing its end. They typically last 4-5 years in

dogs and the first cardiac pacemaker was successfully

implanted in a dog in 1968.

Maximus first had a pacemaker inserted 4 years ago due

to 3rd degree heart block (a degeneration of the hearts

conduction system) resulting in a low heart rate of 40

bpm. Hence he would collapse if he became excited

or tried to exercise. He has had several adjustments

to his pacemaker over the years due to scarring and

fibrosis around the epicardial lead implantation site.

Consequently pacemaker output was adjusted and

this increased battery consumption. However he

has maintained an excellent quality of life with the

pacemaker set at 75 bpm.

The battery life has been closely monitored over the

past 6 months and during this time we were seeing

degeneration of his own cardiac conduction system,

resulting in total loss of his native rhythm. He became

100% reliant on the pacemaker to keep him alive.

Our team felt it necessary to replace the pacemaker

generator as the battery output was low. We called

on the expertise of Rose

from Medtronic ( a Cardiac

Electrophysiology Technician) to

replace the generator.

Maximus needed a

full anaesthetic and a

team of experienced

people to help replace

the pacemaker battery.

At one point 9 people

were in theatre, all

with important jobs

to do from monitoring

his anaesthetic, to the

surgical placement and

through to setting up

the pacemaker.

Complications

documented are seromas around

the surgical site, dislodgement of

the pacing lead, tissue reaction

sufficient to prevent the pacing capture, heart

failure, infections and system malfunctions

within the pacemaker itself.

Maximus’s new generation generator was

Bluetooth enabled and works through his

owners’ mobile phone app. It sends all the

information on Maximus’s cardiac activity

(stored by the generator) to a central database,

where the information can be instantly analysed

and adjustments made from

a distance if deemed necessary.

Maximus has enjoyed years of a care

free, pain free life with a pacemaker.

He’s everyone’s friend and living his

best life, now he has a regular heart

rhythm. He just needs to stare clear of

magnetic fields ( No MRI’s for him).

The second case was a 3 year old

“Mac”, a20kg Border Collie who was

involved in a serious road traffic

accident and suffered multiple

fractures to his pelvis and hindlegs,

ligament injuries involving his stifle

and hock, and severe muscle trauma

and bruising to both hindlegs. He was

unable to weight bear on arrival and

urinating was near impossible due to

pain.

Immediately our surgical team was all over him, providing

multimodal pain relief, antiobiosis, IVF support and initial

patient stabilization. He needed to be heavily sedated

to assess, clean and bandage his wounds, catheterize

his bladder and radiograph to evaluate what his injuries

were so Helen Milner could start to plan for the multiple

surgeries that lay ahead for Mac.

In 21 years of working

at McMaster & Heap, we

have never had such a

complicated surgical

patient necessitating

a high level of care on

every level. Mac underwent three orthopaedic surgeries

to repair fractures and ligament injuries over a week,

afterhours care at our clinic (thanks to Dr Kirsty who

stayed awake all night with him on an airbed) and

intensive 24hr hospitalisation care. He was on so many

medications to cover pain, inflammation, infection, gastro

protectants and anxiety medications, that it was lucky we

had “Smartflow” ( a computorized monitoring system) to

record exactly what he required and when it was given.

Nothing was forgotton. He needed his urine output

measured via a closed catheterization system, he needed

assisted sling walking and proper kennel hygiene. Lucky

for us he liked his tucker, so the

nutrition side was easy.

The client travelled home as she

lived out of town so we were

responsible for all Macs care for 7

days. The entire case was hugely

rewarding and we all quickly grew

attached. His owner adopted

him 2 years previously from the

Rotorua Rescue centre, so we

knew then Mac was a survivor.

Helen and her surgical team did a

fantastic job and from what I hear

Mac is continuing to heal and get

stronger daily. He should make a

full recovery.

The two surgical cases above

highlight the need in the veterinary world to have

Veterinary specialists available, who are highly

and technically skilled and equipped to handle any

surgical emergency thrown at them. Both these

patients needed their expertise to survive.

Sorrow and Bliss

by Meg Mason

Spiky, sharp, intriguingly dark and tender, full of pathos, fury

and wit, Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason is a dazzling,

distinctive novel from a boldly talented writer. For fans

of Sally Rooney, Taffy Brodesser-Akner and Fleabag. This

novel is about a woman called Martha. She knows there is

something wrong with her but she doesn’t know what it is.

Her husband Patrick thinks she is fine. He says everyone

has something, the thing is just to keep going. Martha told

Patrick before they got married that she didn’t want to have

children. He said he didn’t mind either way because he has

loved her since he was fourteen and making her happy is all

that matters, although he does not seem able to do it. By the time Martha finds

out what is wrong, it doesn’t really matter anymore. It is too late to get the only

thing she has ever wanted. Or maybe it will turn out that you can stop loving

someone and start again from nothing - if you can find something else to want.

The book is set in London and Oxford. It is sad and funny.

The Women’s Pages

by Victoria Purman

Sydney 1945 The war is over, the fight begins.

The war is over and so are the jobs (and freedoms) of tens of thousands of

Australian women. The armaments factories are making washing machines instead

of bullets and war correspondent Tilly Galloway has hung up her uniform and been

forced to work on the women’s pages of her newspaper - the only job available to

her - where she struggles to write advice on fashion and make-up.

As Sydney swells with returning servicemen and the city bustles back to post-war

life, Tilly finds her world is anything but normal. As she desperately waits for word

of her prisoner-of-war husband, she begins to research stories about the lives of

the underpaid and overworked women who live in her own city. Those whose war

service has been overlooked; the freedom and independence of their war lives lost

to them.

Meanwhile Tilly’s waterside worker father is on strike, and her best friend Mary is

struggling to cope with the stranger her own husband has become since being

liberated from Changi a broken man. As strikes rip the country apart and the news

from abroad causes despair, matters build to a heart-rending crescendo. Tilly

realises that for her the war may have ended, but the fight is just beginning...

Three-cylinder BMW heralds resurgence

I CAN’T remember the last time

I had two three-cylinder cars in

my driveway.

It was probably when I was

driving Star Media’s Suzuki Alto

pool car on a daily basis, it was

bound to have coincided with a

three-cylinder evaluation car of

some description.

Well, BMW New Zealand offered

me a short notice drive in

its 118i, it was a case of having

to squeeze it in overlapping with

another car – Mitsubishi’s Mirage.

Of course, both of these

vehicles have three-pot engines

and those drives once again

reinforced my interest and

highlighted the resurgence in this

configuration.

In BMW’s case, it was only

a matter of time before its

application of this type of

engine trickled across more of

the company’s product. The

turbocharged 1.5-litre unit first

made its appearance here in the 2

Series Active Tourer in 2015, and

has been used in its X1 and, of

course, variations of the Mini.

BMW New Zealand has just

introduced a new 1 Series, there

three variations at present, two of

which incorporate the three-pot

unit, the M135i is fitted with a

high performance four-cylinder

engine.

However, the three-cylinder

engine punches well above its

weight and you would expect

nothing less from a performance

car manufacturer. The 1499cc

unit is rated with 103kW and

220Nm, both outputs realised

wonderfully low in the rev band

at 4400rpm and 1250rpm for

torque.

The engine is a real honey in

terms of honesty and performance.

It is also rated with rather

amazing fuel usage figures, such

as a 5.9l/100km combined cycle

average.

My test figures hovered around

7l/100km with 4.4l/100km

available instantaneously on a

100km/h cruise, the engine very

unstressed, ticking over at just

1750rpm at that speed thanks to a

tall top gear.

BMW has done well to disguise

the harmonics which are usually

associated with three-cylinder

engines. I guess that’s no surprise,

the company produces vehicles

of high standard and the engine

feels vibration-free, working

solidly through the rev band

and easily filling the short gaps

between gears.

BMW 118I: Comfortable ride on Christchurch’s uneven

roads.

If you are intent on driving

a car without wanting to know

the mechanics or engineering

aspects, you would think the 118i

had nothing out-of-the-ordinary

under the bonnet.

With those generous power

outputs, it is quite spirited. Sure,

the acceleration times are not

startling, but with an 8.5sec time

to make 100km/h from a standstill

it will keep easy pace with

traffic, while power through the

mid-range means overtaking

manoeuvres can be completed

swiftly and safely. As a guide to

its performance, it is capable of a

218km/h top speed.

The evaluation car was the

entry-level Sport Line Edition at

$49,990 which is a front-wheeldrive

model only, as is its stablemate

the M Sport variant at

$53,900. The M135i gets BMW

four-wheel-drive system – xDrive

– and lists at $83,500.

At just over 4.3m, the 118i

is a compact vehicle, but it is a

genuine five-seater, and those on

board won’t feel too cramped, it

makes good use of available space

and it has a comfortable operating

environment.

The spring and damper rates,

through fully independent

underpinnings, are set as

medium-to-firm. In saying that,

the quality of the suspension

allows for wheel freedom and it

will deal well with the upsetting

nature of Christchurch’s rough

roads, along with providing

secure steering feel.

There are optional drive

modes that the driver can select

depending on journey type.

Sport and economy are pretty

much what they represent, but

I mostly preferred the normal

default setting, and in that mode

4319mm; width, 1799mm;

the 118i is honest and does

everything you’d expect in terms

of response.

Inside, it shares much of the

componentry you would find in

other BMWs, even though the

entry-level model doesn’t carry

all of the trick gear BMW have on

offer, you can up-spec from a long

list of BMW options depending

on how much you want to spend,

but if you aren’t tempted into

those then the standard car will

still satisfy as a daily drive.

I particularly like the combination

cloth/leather trim, the seat

squabs are cloth trimmed yet they

also have heaters, it’s the best of

both worlds, sitting in them on

those frosty Canterbury mornings

isn’t onerous.

I’ve always been quite fond

of the 1 Series, it is a good

combination of size and

practicality. I’ve also always

been charmed by three-cylinder

engines and BMW’s unit certainly

delivers with much satisfaction.

INNER LANDS

Clare Reilly’s work has

been described 26 September as Neo- – 28 October 2020

Romantic. Her paintings

are imbued with a poetic

stillness and calm.

She has a close affinity with

birds in the landscape, with

the bird motif signifying a

sense of joy in flight, and

hope and renewal. Clare

lives in Otago’s Blueskin

Bay but also spends time

Main on Rd, Banks Little Peninsula River where | 03 325 1944 | art@littlerivergallery.com

she is inspired by the

landscape, flora and fauna.

Her career spans more than

three decades of painting

and exhibiting throughout

‘The Chattering Stream’ oil painting

New Zealand, with many by Clare Reilly exhibiting at Little River

works going overseas.

Gallery 26 September – 28 October

Inner Lands

Standing at the edge of the Inner land

Looking within and out again.

All is clouded and clear with

Insight, foresight, hindsight,

and still much unknown.

There was a time when,

the land was stilled and hushed.

As if resting, from the itchy human

activity, the earth sighed with relief.

The wind played its song

over the ridge lines and

the voices of birds rang out clear

into a cleaner, quieter air.

The streams chattered down into

gullies of bush and ferns, and the

passing of days were, at last,

observed by many, from inside

their bubbles.

A time of meditative connection

to leave distractions of everyday life

and find the meaning in being.

Now take me to those Inner Lands,

on the journeys of the mind,

where coastal forests give way

to the place of dreams, and

the mind can settle and rest,

and sustain the momentary

beauty of existence.

Reconnect

in style

with

neighbours

• By Bea Gooding

WE MAY soon be reconnecting

with our neighbours in style.

Summer with your Neighbours

is due to start next

month.

A strong focus this year was

for neighbours to re-establish

connections with each other

following the Covid-19 lockdown.

People were able to apply for

funding from the city council,

to organise events such as street

parties, neighbourhood cleanups,

fundraisers or sports days.

Council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships, John Filsell,

said getting to know

your neighbours creates a

greater sense of community

connectedness and safety.

Following the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes, he said there was

a huge swell of community

connections with neighbours

developing strong relationships

and supporting each other.

The same could be said for

the current pandemic.

“Due to the Covid-19

lockdown, people were out

in their neighbourhoods

again and connecting from

a distance; checking on

vulnerable people and making

sure they had access to food,”

said Filsell.

Summer with your Neighbours

starts October 23 and

will run until March.

Group tackling social isolation

THE COVID-19 pandemic,

social dislocation and even

geography conspire to further

isolate already vulnerable

seniors from their communities,

a community development

advocate says.

Social isolation is an emerging

issue brought to the fore by the

response to Covid-19, Sumner

Bays Union Trust community

development team leader Eddie

Hayes said.

The lockdown and the subsequent

movement through the

alert levels has exacerbated anxiety,

reduced the push to go out,

and has affected many socialising

options, he said.

Social distancing rules meant

groups had to downscale or even

temporarily stop the regular

events that provided interaction

and companionship, he said.

“The lockdown highlighted

many of the issues already

experienced by some of the most

vulnerable in our community,

and they are issues that persist

even out of lockdown.

“Older and vulnerable people

were encouraged to get others

to get their groceries, but there

were isolated people who simply

did not have someone else to get

their groceries.

“People were encouraged to

use the internet for their shopping,

but there were people who

were isolated and just not loaded

into the internet.

“This was a situation that was

accentuated where vulnerable

people were not involved in

activities, not part of groups, and

did not have the connections to

get support.”

However, plenty of that potentially

life-affirming need was met

• Swap details with a neighbour, just

as the community rallied to keep

an eye out for and help those

who needed it, Hayes said.

in case of emergency

• Look for other ‘alone’ people and

invite one over

• Become a cafe regular, look for

other people on their own to smile at

• Make scones and take them to a

neighbour

Helping out

• Get to know your neighbours and

take an interest in them.

• Be prepared to assist elderly neighbours

in an emergency

• A personal invitation to an event or

activity and offer to take them can

be enough to break the ice

Remember: it can be hard to ask

for help. Offer your support to

others.

Group

Community and school

groups, neighbourhood associations

and neighbours, and social

services all pitched in, just as

they did in the wake of the Canterbury

earthquakes.

“Our community is used to

responding. We have a wonderfully

supportive community. The

problems arise when we go back

to how things were before.”

There remained many potential

obstacles for improving

social connections and beating

social isolation in the bay area,

Hayes explained.

The popular retirement base

had an ageing population – the

resident population over the age

of 65 is between 15 per cent and

20 per cent – and its hills and

steep streets limit mobility.

Many older people cannot rely

upon the immediate support of

family members, who may be

elsewhere in the city or out of

town entirely.

Neighbours often kept an eye

out for each other, but the pressures

of modern life – multi-job

families, long working hours

and frequent household moves –

made things difficult.

It was in this context that

identifying people who needed

help, and providing ways to

connect people with each other

and the wider community, was

important, Hayes said.

The Sumner Bays Union Trust

is part of the Bay Area Seniors

Project Group which is tackling

social isolation in the Sumner,

Mt Pleasant, Heathcote Valley,

Lyttelton and Woolston area.

The group is sharing information

about social isolation and

the need for connections, and

is actively linking seniors with

groups, services and activities in

its communities.

Harnessing creativity

from recycled ‘junk’

Myriad groups

help keep our

community moving.

Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks

to Creative Junk

co-ordinator

Christine Jackson

about the

importance of

sustainable creativity

What does Creative

Junk do, and how did

it come to be what it is

today?

Originally set up in

1981, we service a demand

for affordable materials

that are used to promote

creative, imaginative

play and events in the

community — for

children, their families,

artists, designers, crafters,

cosplayers, wearable art,

early childhood services,

schools and a variety of

other organisations.

Our motto — Recycle,

Reuse, Rethink — reflects

the organisation’s ideals

and its ethical and

environmental stance.

We are now looking to

expand our outreach to

more actively embrace the

environmental side of our

values

What are the issues that

your charity is currently

facing, and what is being

done to overcome them?

Our biggest issue at

present is funding, it’s been

affected nationwide for

everyone by the Covid-19

crisis, so we here at

Creative Junk are trying

to become more selfsupporting.

We have our “spare parts

boxes” which raises money

for us, with schools or

anyone wanting creative

goods all over the country,

these boxes are posted to

them. We have also held

open days, sip ’n’ craft

nights and car boot sales.

A local Lego group has

also stepped forward and

provided displays in our

upstairs space and charged

a gold coin donation to

view as a fundraising

event for us, as some of

the builders use materials

from our warehouse to

create landscapes for their

displays.

Another issue would be,

not enough people know

about us. Ideally, we would

like to employ another

person to assist with the

co-ordinator in being able

to get out to schools and

other groups to learn about

Creative Junk. Also to go

out to businesses educate

them, what we can use

instead of things going to

landfill.

Why is an organisation

like this important

for Christchurch in

terms of sustainability

and providing creative

resources?

We help businesses

and local people reduce

the amount of products

going into landfill, which

is currently a big problem

in Christchurch. We are

constantly connecting

with new companies who

have what they thought

was “rubbish” but we see

as products to turn into

useful creative items. Our

workshops also help to

educate children that they

can look around their own

homes and find things

to be creative with that

mum or dad was going to

throw away, and that’s the

most important step in

sustainability - education.

Creative Junk is unique

and is important to all of

New Zealand.

What impact has

Creative Junk had on

groups who benefit from

the service?

We work with Ara, The

Repair Shed, The children’s

university, UCA, Learning

Exchange Timebank,

Otautahi Christchurch

Creative Spaces, Skillwise

retraining, Waitaha School

and Volunteer Canterbury

to name but a few over our

39 years of being in the

community.

We have been able

to provide classes with

REPURPOSE: Creative

Junk manager

Christine Jackson

and volunteer Alexia

Martin, with creations

made from recycled

materials destined for

landfill.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

materials for projects

ranging from classroom

activities right up to

materials for school

performance costumes.

We have found

during hard times, like

earthquakes, people with

anxieties or wellbeing

and at the moment with

Covid-19, people go to

a happy place of craft,

drawing, knitting or just

making whatever for a feelgood

feeling within.

With families being at

home together because of

Covid-19 they are doing,

crafting, making things

together and thinking

outside the box, this is

what Creative Junk is

about.

In what ways can

people implement

environmentally

sustainable practices

while promoting

creativity?

The best way is to think

of a way to repurpose an

item before they consider

disposing of it. For

instance, an old golf club

can be repurposed into

a colourful bird garden

decoration or theheads of

a golf club can be fixed to

a board and turned into

a coat rack. An old lawn

bowl or bowling ball can

be turned into a bright

animal-themed doorstop.

The best thing people can

do is to stop and think

before they put anything in

the bin.

Easy waterfront living

78b Esplanade, Sumner

3 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms, 2 toilets,

1 living, 1 car garaging

Thoughtfully designed to respond to the magnificent Sumner seascape, this

tastefully refurbished apartment offers an immensely low-maintenance

lifestyle in one of the city’s finest beachside settings. Enjoying easy-care

construction and benefiting from a clever design, this north-facing property

showcases style and comfort with upgrades in both the kitchen and

bathrooms. The open plan living and dining area forms the social centre of

the home and flows directly off the kitchen for easy entertaining. Embracing

the outdoors is effortless with the superbly positioned hardwood deck

basking in afternoon sunshine while the designer courtyard provides a

brilliant backdrop for afternoon drinks or evening meals during summertime.

Magnificent sea views will have you staying in, especially from the top level

lounge/bedroom with its amazing round window giving you an eye over the

admirable vista. The other two bedrooms positioned on the middle level are

supported by a well-sized bathroom, and the presence of a single garage

completes the package.

Situated upon a private rear section that’s mere footsteps from the sea

and a short stroll from the myriad of amenities in Sumner village, this

three-bedroom apartment represents the ultimate lock-and-leave,

first home or downsizer in a supremely sought-after location.

Pascoe Beach House: An Architectural Icon

58 Colenso Street, Sumner 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 Car

Eye-catching aesthetics and a rich history are compelling qualities of this

admired mid-century beach house, originally designed and owned by

renowned local architect, Paul Pascoe.

Constructed in 1948, this exceedingly unique home was recognised as one of

the 50 best homes of the 20th century by Home and Entertaining Magazine’

as the first great New Zealand Beach House. It was also listed with the

Historic Places Trust as a building of architectural merit.

A considered upgrade over the years occurred under the watchful eye of

Pascoe’s son, Simon, with the property now enjoying a kitchen and two

bathrooms by acclaimed designer, Ingrid Geldof. The interior effortlessly

pairs contemporary enhancements with classic, coastal style, and includes

modernist fixtures and timber floors that impart a welcoming and timeless

ambience.

Showcasing a remarkable use of space across two levels, the distinctive

layout hosts the living zones and breath-taking balcony on the first floor,

perfectly placed to capture glimpses of the ocean. The property’s versatile

configuration comprises three bedrooms and a study which is a natural fit for

busy lifestyles.

Considerable comfort is offered indoors by heat pumps, a gas fire and central

heating, with the presence of two bathrooms providing convenience.

Outside, the established garden and private patio provide a peaceful

backdrop for entertaining, with a sizeable double studio delivering extensive

storage and utility space options.

This exceptional home is beyond compare and will attract high levels of

interest from those who adore the property’s remarkable origins through

to others who appreciate the mid-century architecture or supreme setting

within Sumner’s golden triangle.
