Bully Hayes<br />

restaurant<br />

rebranding<br />

delayed<br />

due to<br />

Covid-19<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

THE RENAMING of Bully<br />

Hayes Restaurant & Bar has been<br />

delayed because of the financial<br />

impacts of Covid-19.<br />

The Akaroa restaurant, which<br />

has been called Bully Hayes for<br />

25 years, came under fire in June<br />

for glorifying Bully Hayes, a<br />

19th-century United States ship<br />

captain who has been accused of<br />

human trafficking, and abducting<br />

and raping young women and<br />

children in the Pacific.<br />

Owner Wayne Jones said the renaming<br />

will still happen but only<br />

when the business is in a financial<br />

position to do this.<br />

Since the controversy, the name<br />

has been changing temporarily on<br />

a weekly basis, but a permanent<br />

name change has been settled on.<br />

Currently it is being called Bully<br />

Stays.<br />

Jones originally planned to<br />

change the name this month but<br />

rebranding will cost between<br />

$20,000 and $30,000. He said his<br />

main priorities at the moment are<br />

keeping staff employed and the<br />

restaurant surviving the summer.<br />

McLellan gets to work after big win<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

LABOUR’S TRACEY McLellan<br />

is feeling “incredibly humbled”<br />

after being elected MP for the<br />

newly-formed Banks Peninsula<br />

electorate.<br />

Election night saw Labour<br />

dominate the party vote across<br />

Greater Christchurch and claim<br />

every electorate except for Selwyn<br />

and Waimakariri.<br />

McLellan recorded a<br />

resounding victory over<br />

National’s Catherine Chu in<br />

the race to become MP for the<br />

peninsula, receiving 22,038 votes,<br />

more than double Chu’s 10,834.<br />

She said she was “incredibly<br />

humbled” to receive such strong<br />

support from constituents and<br />

promised to put everything into<br />

her new role.<br />

“I will do my very best to<br />

advocate for them [people of the<br />

Banks Peninsula] as Labour rolls<br />

out its rebuild programme,” she<br />

said.<br />

“I am a good listener, I’m a<br />

good observer, I know how to<br />

bring people together and that is<br />

the first task for us, to build up<br />

those relationships that we made<br />

during the campaign and get to<br />

the nub of what our communities<br />

need.”<br />

There was a degree of<br />

uncertainty around who would<br />

LADIES IN RED: Banks Peninsula MP Tracey McLellan with Wigram MP Megan Woods and<br />

new Ilam MP Sarah Pallett.<br />

become the MP for the new<br />

electorate after Labour stalwart<br />

Ruth Dyson, who had presided<br />

over the area for 27 years<br />

under several different seats,<br />

announced her retirement. A<br />

boundary change also added<br />

6500 people into the Banks<br />

Peninsula electorate from the<br />

traditionally National voting<br />

YOUR LOCAL<br />

ACCOUNTANT<br />

I COME<br />

TO YOU<br />

Selwyn electorate. However, this<br />

did not have a telling impact<br />

on McLellan’s pursuit for<br />

Parliament.<br />

McLellan thought recovery<br />

from the pandemic, sustainable<br />

tourism, jobs, the environment<br />

and housing are the key issues for<br />

her new electorate.<br />

At the moment she lives<br />

outside the electorate but plans to<br />

move within it.<br />

“I do have plans to move in,<br />

yes, my Trade Me watch list is<br />

filling up. It is just a question of<br />

when and where and making<br />

those options available to<br />

myself.”<br />

McLellan has been a member<br />

of the Labour Party since 2011<br />

and became acting party president<br />

following Nigel Harworth’s<br />

resignation over the handling of<br />

sexual abuse claims made against<br />

party members. She is currently<br />

senior vice president of the party.<br />

Politics runs in the family, her<br />

son Jake is a city councillor and a<br />

fellow Labour Party member.<br />

Before McLellan entered<br />

politics, she spent a number<br />

of years working in clinical<br />

research after getting her PhD in<br />

psychology.<br />

Her focus was on dementia<br />

disorders and what happens in<br />

the aftermath of a childhood<br />

brain injury. She was also an<br />

organiser for the New Zealand<br />

Nurses Organisation but resigned<br />

on Sunday after securing a seat in<br />

Parliament.<br />

Akaroa: Domestic tourist destination<br />

While Akaroa adjusts to<br />

life without an influx of<br />

cruise ship passengers<br />

and overseas tourists,<br />

fresh opportunities in<br />

the domestic tourism<br />

sector could be on<br />

the horizon. Louis Day<br />

reports<br />

PANDEMIC-related restrictions<br />

on international travel may<br />

present problems for the tourism<br />

industry with the international<br />

tourist tap running dry, but these<br />

same restrictions also present<br />

great opportunity in retaining<br />

New Zealanders who would<br />

usually spend overseas.<br />

A study from Deloitte forecasted<br />

there could be up to $8.2<br />

billion that would typically be<br />

spent overseas by New Zealanders<br />

being retained within the<br />

country’s borders due to the<br />

pandemic.<br />

“This does represent an opportunity<br />

for regions to ‘redirect’<br />

and ‘retain’ some of the expenditure<br />

that New Zealanders would<br />

have spent overseas,” the study<br />

states.<br />

The organisation predicts that<br />

this “retained spending” opportunity<br />

could be worth $1 billion<br />

to Canterbury.<br />

Akaroa District Promotions<br />

tourism marketing manager Jane<br />

Scribner thought what the town<br />

had to offer could see it getting a<br />

“decent slice of the pie.”<br />

“We think we provide attractions<br />

and experiences that suit<br />

most markets, families, couples,<br />

seniors, the only thing we don’t<br />

have is a raging nightlife,” she<br />

said.<br />

As the region’s oldest town,<br />

with French culture pulsating<br />

throughout its foundations, a<br />

testament to its history of being<br />

settled by the French in 1840,<br />

it offers the domestic tourist an<br />

international escape without<br />

having to leave the country.<br />

French street names, flags and<br />

francophones which dominate<br />

the town’s landscape gives<br />

Akaroa the European flavour it is<br />

famous for.<br />

French Peak Vineyard is an<br />

example of the lasting impression<br />

the town’s past is having on its<br />

present.<br />

PRECIOUS:<br />

Whiteflippered<br />

penguins can<br />

be found in<br />

Pohatu <strong>Bay</strong><br />

which is only<br />

a short drive<br />

from Akaroa’s<br />

town centre.<br />

Owner, French-born Renan<br />

Cataliotti, came to Akaroa 12<br />

years ago with the intentions<br />

of staying one night. However,<br />

he ended up meeting his wife<br />

in the town and has stayed ever<br />

since.<br />

He believed his business gave<br />

customers a French-themed<br />

experience which complemented<br />

the flavour of the area.<br />

“People come here and see this<br />

French guy and French farm<br />

and the wine has quite a French<br />

influence in the way it is made as<br />

well,” he said.<br />

The 3.5ha vineyard where the<br />

grapes for the wine are grown sit<br />

in the centre of an ancient volcano<br />

which Cataliotti said gave<br />

the wine a very unique taste.<br />

“The soil, the climate, it is the<br />

only place in New Zealand where<br />

the soil has no limestone, just<br />

clay and volcanic soil. It gives it a<br />

very nice, subtle and very delicate<br />

feel, it is very pure and very clean<br />

like the peninsula,” he said.<br />

Cataliotti said the town’s<br />

french community of about 20<br />

people was growing year by year<br />

as French backpackers passed<br />

through the area and decided to<br />

settle, just as their ancestors did<br />

in the 1800s.<br />

Part of the town’s french cohort<br />

is Kevin Parthonnaud. He acts<br />

as the general manager of the<br />

Pohatu Penguin colony.<br />

with international flair<br />

His story is similar to Cataliotti’s.<br />

He came to New Zealand<br />

with a working holiday visa and<br />

“three words of English.”<br />

When he discovered Pohatu<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>, he fell in love and fell in<br />

love again when he met Averil,<br />

the niece of Shireen and Francis<br />

Helps who founded the colony.<br />

He is now happily married to<br />

Averil and alongside her helps<br />

keep the colony going which<br />

now has more than 1264 pairs of<br />

white-flippered penguins.<br />

The colony, which is more than<br />

30 years old is the largest of its<br />

kind in mainland New Zealand.<br />

It is completely funded by tourism<br />

so relies on people going for<br />

tours.<br />

Parthonnaud said the setting of<br />

the colony also provided visitors<br />

with a unique experience with the<br />

penguins.<br />

“You can witness the penguins<br />

socialising on the water and like<br />

rafting on it which is quite a<br />

unique point,” he said.<br />

Tours of the colony also allow<br />

guests to get up close and personal<br />

with the penguins by visiting<br />

the small homes they live in.<br />

The French settled town also offers<br />

the opportunity for visitors to<br />

witness the wonder of the hector’s<br />

dolphin.<br />

Black Cat Cruises allows people<br />

to view the world’s rarest and<br />

smallest oceanic dolphin in its<br />

natural habitat. The company<br />

offers boat cruises as well as immersive<br />

swimming experiences<br />

with the doplhins.<br />

Hector’s dolphins are endemic<br />

to New Zealand, meaning they<br />

are not found anywhere else in<br />

the world. Furthermore, Akaroa<br />

is the only place in the country<br />

where it is possible to swim with<br />

them.<br />

Chief executive Paul Milligan<br />

thought the experience<br />

would satisfy the desires of New<br />

Zealander’s longing for the type<br />

of adventure you would expect<br />

overseas.<br />

“Plenty of Kiwis do take an<br />

overseas trip at some point and<br />

now they can’t and perhaps they<br />

are looking for those types of<br />

experiences they would get overseas<br />

here in New Zealand, that is<br />

certainly something we can offer,”<br />

he said.<br />

alpacas. The furry friends make<br />

for a great photo opportunity<br />

Great fire of Lyttelton subject of exhibition<br />

IT WAS after 10pm on <strong>October</strong><br />

24, 1870, when a fire started in<br />

an empty house on Lyttelton’s<br />

Oxford St between the Queen’s<br />

Hotel and a boot-maker’s shop.<br />

The flames quickly spread<br />

through nearby shops until both<br />

sides of London St were burning.<br />

The fire raged along Oxford St and<br />

Norwich Quay through wooden<br />

houses, stables, a warehouse full<br />

of wheat and two ship chandler’s<br />

(marine equipment) shops and<br />

then set most of the township<br />

ablaze in spite of the desperate efforts<br />

of the local brigade.<br />

Some of the drama of that<br />

night is captured in a new exhibition<br />

called Sifting the Ashes:<br />

The Great Fire of Lyttelton that<br />

has been researched and put together<br />

by Lyttelton Library staff<br />

for the Christchurch Heritage<br />

Festival.<br />

The display will feature<br />

original sources describing the<br />

progress of the fire, attempts to<br />

control it, and its aftermath as<br />

the damage was assessed and the<br />

town rebuilt. Lyttelton Museum<br />

has given the library permission<br />

to use photos from its collection.<br />

City council head of libraries<br />

Carolyn Robertson said the<br />

exhibition is a response to the<br />

community’s strong interest<br />

in local history and staff have<br />

gathered material from library<br />

archives, digital maps and other<br />

resources.<br />

“The fire was a momentous<br />

event and one that many<br />

Christchurch residents might<br />

not be aware of. The Heritage<br />

Festival is an opportunity to<br />

remember and inform people<br />

about the city’s past. There are so<br />

many stories to explore and uncover<br />

and some great resources<br />

available through the library to<br />

use for research.”<br />

On that night 150 years ago,<br />

the brightness of the sky above<br />

the Port Hills alerted people in<br />

Christchurch to the fire and reinforcements<br />

travelled to the port<br />

by train, including a steam fire<br />

engine that was hurriedly loaded<br />

on board.<br />

The huge blaze was finally<br />

brought under control, but by<br />

that time most of the commercial<br />

area of Lyttelton had been<br />

destroyed with over £100,000<br />

worth of damage.<br />

At the time it was the worst<br />

urban fire in New Zealand’s<br />

history.<br />

A newspaper report the following<br />

day described the chaotic<br />

scene as “terrifically grand”.<br />

DESTROYED: At the time, the port<br />

fire was the worst urban blaze in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

•Sifting the Ashes: The Great Fire of<br />

Lyttelton, at Lyttelton Library, runs until<br />

November 14. Open Monday to Friday<br />

10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.<br />

“…the whole block, some three<br />

acres in area, being one solid<br />

mass of fire, lighting up the harbour<br />

and surrounding hills.<br />

“The scene on the reclaimed<br />

land was of a most painful<br />

character, women and children<br />

being huddled together on<br />

heaps of furniture, utterly<br />

homeless, and only partially<br />

clothed.”<br />

Jones did not give specifics<br />

on the financial hit the business<br />

Said Jones: “Everybody’s<br />

• From page 1<br />

The city council has now<br />

launched an investigation<br />

into how the 45 sirens can<br />

be upgraded along the<br />

coastline between Taylors<br />

Mistake and Brooklands.<br />

City council head of civil<br />

defence emergency management<br />

Rob Orchard said<br />

the sirens did not comply<br />

with two components of<br />

the technical standard, but<br />

it was still an effective tool<br />

used to warn people of an<br />

imminent tsunami on the<br />

coast.<br />

“The sirens though are<br />

only one of the tools we<br />

would use if a tsunami<br />

was coming our way,” he<br />

said.<br />

“If we get information<br />

that a distant source<br />

is what we’re heading into<br />

in November. Our focus<br />

is on keeping my staff<br />

employed and paying their<br />

wages.”<br />

He would know by<br />

March if the business has<br />

been able to recover from<br />

tsunami generated from<br />

across the Pacific Ocean or<br />

a regional source tsunami<br />

generated from the eastern<br />

North Island is likely to hit<br />

our coastline, we will use<br />

all available channels to<br />

get that message out to the<br />

public.”<br />

If you hear the tsunami<br />

sirens, Orchard said to<br />

check if there is an official<br />

tsunami warning for your<br />

zone; either red, orange or<br />

yellow.<br />

“The warning is given<br />

on the radio, television,<br />

social media or through an<br />

Emergency Mobile Alert to<br />

your phone. If there is an<br />

announcement to evacuate<br />

the zone you are in, follow<br />

the instructions immediately,’’<br />

he said.<br />

Covid.<br />

The restaurant has<br />

recently changed to its<br />

summer menu which Jones<br />

said cost about $3000. The<br />

original plan was to do<br />

the naming rebrand at the<br />

same time.<br />

Investigation launched<br />

into upgrading sirens<br />

If a tsunami came from<br />

a local source, there would<br />

not be enough time to<br />

activate the sirens.<br />

“In that case, the best<br />

warning sign is the earthquake<br />

itself,” said Orchard.<br />

“If you are near the<br />

coast and you experience<br />

a strong earthquake that is<br />

difficult to stand up in, or<br />

lasts for a minute or more,<br />

you should immediately<br />

move to higher ground or<br />

as far inland as possible.’’<br />

Orchard said he is investigating<br />

how the city’s<br />

sirens could be upgraded so<br />

they comply with NEMA’s<br />

Technical Standard.<br />

He will bring a report<br />

back to the sustainability<br />

and community resilience<br />

committee.<br />

being euthanised, Canterbury<br />

woman Jasmine Hubber – who<br />

runs Til the Cows Came Home –<br />

called in the help of Huha (Helping<br />

You Help Animals).<br />

It has spent the past five weeks<br />

and $28,000 on veterinary<br />

bills and providing feed for the<br />

various breeds of cows located in<br />

eight different paddocks around<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Huha is now facing the ambitious<br />

task of re-homing all of<br />

them as pets.<br />

Hubber said the situation<br />

worsened after lockdown when a<br />

grazier who had been contracted<br />

to care for 60 cows failed to do<br />

so.<br />

While they were there one of<br />

the bulls being grazed nearby got<br />

into paddock and impregnated<br />

20 cows which all had calves.<br />

The Ministry for Primary Industries<br />

insisted the underweight<br />

cows be moved immediately, and<br />

it was the new neighbour that<br />

alerted MPI for a second time<br />

as there wasn’t enough grass for<br />

them in the paddock, she said.<br />

“The property they were on<br />

when we moved them from the<br />

grazier was 16ha and it had a lot<br />

of grass when they first arrived,<br />

but it just couldn’t sustain them<br />

for more than two months,” she<br />

said.<br />

“It’s kind of been a build up<br />

over the six months and everything<br />

got too much.”<br />

Hubber said it had been a big<br />

learning process and she had<br />

learnt that she couldn’t take in<br />

every cow, especially as she had<br />

been trying to do the majority of<br />

it on her own.<br />

Press-McKenzie said she was<br />

heartbroken when she first saw<br />

the cows in the paddock five<br />

weeks ago.<br />

Press-McKenzie said Til the<br />

Cows Came Home had struggled<br />

with the care of the animals to<br />

the point that it was impacting<br />

the cows’ health.<br />

“The first thing affecting me<br />

was how serious it was . . . my<br />

heart broke when I saw the cows.<br />

They looked empty and they<br />

were bellowing and there was<br />

no food. I was devastated about<br />

what they had been through<br />

to get into that condition and I<br />

knew that it had been a long slow<br />

journey to get that hungry.”<br />

Til the Cows Came Home had<br />

been running for two years and<br />

had taken in small herds of cows<br />

and bobby calves, but had failed<br />

to re-home the animals to make<br />

room for more.<br />

“Somewhere along the line she<br />

got some bum advice and neglected<br />

to castrate the little boy<br />

calves and then what has happened<br />

is there’s been an awful lot<br />

of breeding and overcrowding<br />

and there’s been situations where<br />

there’s been grass and not the<br />

capacity to buy the food and feed<br />

required.”<br />

Some of the young heifers who<br />

were pregnant were too young to<br />

carry the pregnancy to term so<br />

some of those had to be aborted,<br />

while another could not be<br />

helped and had to be euthanised.<br />

Others were extremely emaciated<br />

but were recovering after<br />

being fed with the help of local<br />

farmers.<br />

Under Huha’s instruction,<br />

local vet clinics were also called<br />

on to de horn, vaccinate, drench<br />

and pregnancy test the female<br />

cows and neuter the males.<br />

The cows range from bottle<br />

feeders to eight or nine-yearsold<br />

and were a mix of friesian,<br />

jerseys, galloways, angus and<br />

hereford.<br />

But now five weeks on most<br />

of the cows are either in good<br />

health - a vast change from when<br />

she first saw them and thought<br />

about a third would not survive<br />

– or on the road to recovery.<br />

Press-McKenzie’s believed only<br />

five cows plus the unborn calves<br />

had been euthanised due to the<br />

hard work of MPI, the local<br />

farmers and vets and Huha.<br />

She said looking after<br />

that many cows was a huge<br />

undertaking for anyone both<br />

physically and financially – let<br />

alone a 20-year-old.<br />

Otago pinot noirs on parade<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

OFTEN WHEN I’m deciding on<br />

what I’m going to taste for this<br />

column, I endeavour to maintain<br />

a bit of variety.<br />

I’ve been working on a few<br />

different wine styles, which will<br />

make their appearance in the<br />

weeks to come so a flight of pinot<br />

noir beckoned.<br />

(yet not underpowered) style.<br />

Juicy and vibrant, the sweet<br />

fruit, acid drops and wild herbtinged<br />

palate shifting to savoury<br />

characters with a sweet ’n’ sour<br />

tanginess on the close. In the slot<br />

with richness and depth of<br />

balanced by refreshing acidity.<br />

Tasty Bites<br />

Simple frittata for a lazy Sunday dinner<br />

THIS SIMPLE, tasty vegetable<br />

frittata is perfect to cook on a lazy<br />

Sunday night.<br />

It can be prepared and cooked<br />

in about 40min and only needs a<br />

green salad to accompany it.<br />

It is also nice cold so is great to<br />

make for a picnic.<br />

It is best if you have a frying<br />

pan that can be put in the oven,<br />

although the frittata can easily<br />

be made without one. When the<br />

frittata has been cooked up to the<br />

stage when it is to be put under<br />

the grill, place a large flat plate or<br />

oven tray over the frying pan and<br />

turn the pan over so that the frittata<br />

is turned out onto it.<br />

Then place a second plate (or<br />

tray) over the frittata and turn it all<br />

over again so that the frittata is now<br />

sitting top side up. Finally, place the<br />

frying pan on top and turn it all<br />

over again so that the frittata is now<br />

upside down in the pan.<br />

Place the pan back on the stove<br />

to finish cooking the top.<br />

This recipe will need a frying<br />

pan about 30cm in diameter.<br />

Impossible: My Story<br />

by Stan Walker<br />

A startling and important memoir about family and forgiveness, love and redemption.<br />

For the first time, Stan Walker speaks with startling honesty about<br />

abuse and addiction, hardship and excess, cancer and<br />

discrimination, and growing up in a family where love<br />

and violence were horribly entwined.<br />

From one of the finest singers to emerge from Australia<br />

and New Zealand Aotearoa in a generation, Impossible<br />

is a story of redemption and the power of forgiveness.<br />

It’s also a story about courage and hope; about a young<br />

Maori boy finding his place and purpose, never forgetting<br />

who he is and where he came from.<br />

This Is Not How It Ends<br />

How Rewriting Your Story Can Save Your Life<br />

by Jehan Casinader<br />

A BOOK OF HEALING AND HOPE BY NEW ZEALAND TV JOURNALIST JEHAN<br />

CASINADER.<br />

As an award-winning TV journalist, Jehan Casinader told other people’s<br />

stories - until he lost control of his own. Severely depressed, he tried<br />

everything - from mindfulness to massage; Prozac to Pilates. Was<br />

something missing?<br />

This Is Not How It Ends chronicles Jehan’s four-year battle with depression,<br />

and how the power of storytelling helped him to survive. He argues that<br />

many of us think our brains are broken, but in fact, our stories are broken.<br />

Jehan began an experiment on himself. Could he rewrite his past? Could he<br />

reinvent his character? Could he create a whole new plot?<br />

This gritty, vulnerable book will challenge readers’ understanding of mental<br />

distress, and give them the tools to reshape their own life stories.<br />

Will they be strong enough to overcome the forces which threaten to tear<br />

their family apart?<br />

Peel the pumpkin, remove<br />

the seeds and cut it into small<br />

cubes, no more than a couple<br />

of centimetres square. You will<br />

need about two cups of pumpkin.<br />

Spread the pumpkin on a baking<br />

tray — cover it with baking paper<br />

first to save on the washing up<br />

— and drizzle over a little olive<br />

oil. Add a good sprinkle of salt<br />

and freshly ground black pepper.<br />

Mix it around a little so that<br />

the pumpkin is reasonably well<br />

coated with the oil. Place in the<br />

oven for about 15min or until it is<br />

only just tender.<br />

Slice the onions thinly and<br />

place in a frying pan with the<br />

butter. Cook over a medium heat<br />

until soft.<br />

Remove the pan from the heat.<br />

Add the pumpkin to the onion in<br />

the frying pan.<br />

Thaw the spinach and squeeze<br />

out as much water as you can.<br />

Sprinkle it fairly evenly over the<br />

pumpkin, along with the roughly<br />

broken up feta cheese. Cut the<br />

Action and Opportunities in<br />

Skills and Employment<br />

By Karen Haigh<br />

As COVID causes economic<br />

disruption worldwide, one of the<br />

most significant impacts is on<br />

people’s jobs.<br />

Many of us have had our<br />

livelihoods affected in some way<br />

by COVID - some by<br />

redundancy, some by a reduction<br />

in hours, or even by a reduction<br />

in remuneration.<br />

It’s clear our school leavers and<br />

graduates will face a very<br />

different outlook when they<br />

finish their qualifications at the<br />

end of the year.<br />

As the city’s sustainable economic<br />

development agency,<br />

ChristchurchNZ is working<br />

towards socio-economic<br />

recovery and supporting our<br />

workforce is a key piece of that<br />

vital work.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is helping identify opportunities for people to reskill and move into other sectors<br />

So, what’s the situation?<br />

Canterbury has seen a 63%<br />

increase in job seekers since the<br />

beginning of the year, with the<br />

regional unemployment rate<br />

rising to 5.1% from 3.2% in<br />

January of this year. The average<br />

number of hours worked is down<br />

10% from a year ago.<br />

As well as impacting around<br />

9,000 jobs, this tighter job market<br />

has a knock-on impact on other<br />

areas including those about to<br />

join the workforce. We will have<br />

over 7,000 school leavers and<br />

almost 10,000 tertiary graduates<br />

in the region facing an uncertain<br />

future come the end of the year.<br />

Higher unemployment impacts<br />

more significantly on those in<br />

lower skilled roles and our<br />

vulnerable populations – Māori;<br />

Pasifika; young people not in<br />

employment, education or<br />

training; and our long-term<br />

unemployed.<br />

And what are we doing?<br />

We are supporting the journey<br />

for labour market priority groups<br />

– school leavers, tertiary<br />

graduates, NEET (young people<br />

not in employment, education or<br />

training), impacted workers,<br />

Māori and industry.<br />

To ensure work isn’t duplicated,<br />

and to identify gaps, we are<br />

mapping the support available<br />

from iwi, central and local<br />

government agencies, our<br />

education providers, charitable<br />

trusts, and other support groups.<br />

Impact projects can then be<br />

delivered to provide support<br />

where needed.<br />

It is critical we ensure our<br />

community has access to the<br />

information they need, and is<br />

aware of the help available.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is developing<br />

regional information resources<br />

and working to ensure this gets<br />

into the hands of those who<br />

need it.<br />

We are also developing a<br />

Regional Workforce Plan that<br />

identifies the skills available and<br />

needed now and in the future.<br />

This plan will inform central<br />

government investment and<br />

policy in education, immigration<br />

and community interventions;<br />

and will enable us to better<br />

understand what skills<br />

Christchurch’s future economy<br />

will require. That in turn will<br />

allow us to work with education<br />

providers to ensure the right<br />

courses are offered.<br />

In times of recession we generally<br />

see an increase in people<br />

choosing to study.<br />

This is an opportunity to upskill<br />

Canterbury’s relatively<br />

poorly-educated workforce for<br />

our future economy, to generate<br />

more and better jobs, to increase<br />

productivity, and to raise living<br />

standards and wellbeing.<br />

We are supporting Ngāi Tahu’s<br />

development of an iwi skills hub<br />

that will create stronger pathways<br />

for young Māori into tertiary<br />

education and skilled jobs.<br />

high-growth areas. We are also<br />

seeking to future-proof<br />

Canterbury’s labour market<br />

- we know how vital it is to create<br />

new jobs to ensure people have<br />

employment options now and<br />

in the longer term.<br />

We have invested in a city-wide<br />

innovation and entrepreurship<br />

ecosystem partnership to support<br />

high-growth potential businesses<br />

and future job creation in areas<br />

of regional strength and global<br />

growth opportunity. These<br />

Supernodes are Aerospace and<br />

Future Transport; Food, Fibre<br />

and Agritech; Health Tech and<br />

Resilient Communities; and<br />

High-Tech Services.<br />

Our business attraction team is<br />

working to attract additional<br />

businesses and jobs to the region.<br />

While we expect ongoing<br />

economic disruption, there<br />

are many green shoots and<br />

opportunities – one of which is<br />

to develop a workforce that is<br />

highly skilled and can support a<br />

thriving and globally competitive<br />

future economy.<br />

Healthtech is a flourishing sector in Canterbury<br />

Among other projects, we are<br />

working with education partners<br />

and mana whenua to increase<br />

aspiration and participation of<br />

students in low-decile schools in<br />

future-focused tertiary study that<br />

will lead to careers in<br />

Every Day is Open Day<br />

Once again, the New Zealand educational curriculum is<br />

in the firing line – and it is perhaps hard to argue that it<br />

shouldn’t be.* On the all-important international stage, the<br />

latest data from PISA, the Programme for International<br />

Student Assessment, indicates our Kiwi kids are on the<br />

slide. The downward trend in results over the last decade<br />

shows a lost equivalent of three to six terms of schooling in<br />

the key subjects of Reading, Maths and Science.<br />

This is despite a 32% increase in per-child spending since<br />

2001 and, in Christchurch at least, the construction of<br />

purpose-built modern learning environments deliberately<br />

designed to foster the national curriculum’s child-centred<br />

orthodoxy.<br />

Of course, every child should be at the heart of their own<br />

learning. How could they now be! But let’s not throw the<br />

baby out with the bathwater. A child’s education should be<br />

a balance of subject knowledge; essential skills; teaching<br />

programmes developed to suit their demonstrated<br />

knowledge, understanding and progress; and assessment<br />

that offers you, your child and their teachers, honesty and<br />

evidence of this progress.<br />

All parents, teachers and coaches know that children learn<br />

best when they are interested in what they are learning.<br />

Making subject knowledge and skills<br />

interesting is the ongoing and exciting<br />

challenge for all of us who educate and<br />

motivate our children.<br />

Located in the heart of our city, St<br />

Michael’s has been educating and<br />

nurturing the children of Christchurch<br />

for 169 years. For our young pupils<br />

have limitless potential to lead exciting<br />

and generous lives, and we have the<br />

responsibility to educate and inspire<br />

them, to encourage every child to flourish<br />

in mind, body and spirit.<br />

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls and<br />

boys in Years 1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation<br />

for secondary school, a foundation for a<br />

fine life. For at the heart of St Michael’s<br />

are the essential values of Christian faith<br />

and good citizenship: respect, integrity, community, faith,<br />

hope and love.<br />

An independent school education at the primary level is<br />

a great gift. Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20<br />

pupils, ensuring your child is an individual, well known by<br />

staff and fellow pupils alike.<br />

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are<br />

assured. This academic rigour then underpins our wider<br />

curriculums in History, Geography, Science and Spanish.<br />

IT literacy is taught, not assumed, and computer use is<br />

measured. We like teaching and talking to our pupils!<br />

A prep education offers balance. St Michael’s cultural<br />

and sports’ programmes further develop your child’s<br />

foundation, as creativity and problem-solving come in<br />

many forms. Specialist art and music classes are enjoyed<br />

weekly. We have three choirs, and most pupils participate<br />

in instrumental or speech & drama lessons with our ten<br />

itinerant staff.<br />

Nestled on the banks of the Avon, opposite the Riverside<br />

Farmers’ Market, our extended campus is spectacular: the<br />

Art Gallery, Museum, Tūranga – the<br />

central library, and Hagley Park are<br />

just minutes away.<br />

Many of our parents now work in<br />

the thriving city centre or Lincoln<br />

and Riccarton Road hubs, but they<br />

live city-wide. They comment on the<br />

comfort of knowing their children are<br />

in school nearby and the benefits of<br />

popping over for an hour to catch a<br />

performance or watch a race. With the<br />

central exchange only a block away,<br />

senior children arrive by bus from all<br />

corners of the city.<br />

You and your child are warmly<br />

welcome to discover our purposeful,<br />

wholehearted and inclusive prep<br />

school. Our next Open Day is<br />

coming up, on Tuesday 3 November. Pop in during<br />

the day between 8.30am – 4.00pm for a tour, and to<br />

Navara that stands out in a crowd<br />

SALES OF THE traditional fourwheel-drive<br />

double cab ute in<br />

New Zealand are showing no sign<br />

of slowing.<br />

There are a multitude of<br />

pick-ups in today’s market, and<br />

competition between the major<br />

manufacturers is fierce.<br />

Most manufacturers offer<br />

dress-up kits and accessories<br />

that will give your ute a point of<br />

difference. There are also many<br />

choices in terms of limited edition<br />

models that complement the<br />

mainstream range.<br />

One of those is Nissan’s Navara<br />

N-Trek Warrior, it’s full of kit and<br />

adornments that make it stand<br />

out in the crowd; it is bold, brash<br />

and downright aggressive and it<br />

also looks as if it is here to stay<br />

such is the detail that has gone<br />

into the model.<br />

Alongside the elements which<br />

make the N-Trek Warrior stand<br />

out, it is also plush with a heap<br />

of kit that also takes it up a level<br />

in terms of refinement. Major<br />

features include satellite navigation,<br />

orange-stitched and twotone<br />

leather and cloth trim with<br />

heated front seats, keyless entry<br />

and ignition, rear and overhead<br />

view camera system, touch<br />

screen display, Apple CarPlay and<br />

Android Auto, cruise control and<br />

all the safety gear to earn it a fivestar<br />

Australasian New Car Assessment<br />

Program safety rating.<br />

Cabin comfort is high and<br />

space is plentiful. The deck area<br />

doesn’t compromise greatly the<br />

rear seating area, and the rake<br />

on those uprights is sufficient so<br />

that travel in the rear over long<br />

distances isn’t compromised.<br />

It’s one thing to dress up a<br />

model, but if those accessories are<br />

going to hinder the working role<br />

or its ability off-the-seal then I<br />

can’t really see the point. However,<br />

Nissan have gone one step<br />

further with the N-Trek Warrior,<br />

it’s four-wheel-drive ability is<br />

enhanced through massive tyres,<br />

the high profile Cooper rubber<br />

(<strong>21</strong>5/70 x 17in) provides the<br />

N-Trek Warrior with substantial<br />

off-road ability. Such are the size<br />

of the tyres (32in in diameter)<br />

that ground clearance has been<br />

raised substantially up to 268mm.<br />

Nissan had to do a lot of development<br />

work to make these tyres<br />

work on the vehicle, it required a<br />

suspension lift and some alterations<br />

so that the rubber wouldn’t<br />

grab any of the mechanicals<br />

when suspension travel was at its<br />

greatest. The shock absorbers are<br />

also a special specification for the<br />

Warrior, providing that compliance<br />

needed for comfort.<br />

The result is a formidable offroad<br />

ute in terms of looks and<br />

four-wheel-drive ability. Now,<br />

I’m not saying I evaluated the N-<br />

Trek Warrior to an extreme level<br />

FEATURES: Body kit and huge wheels give the Navara an<br />

aggressive stance.<br />

NISSAN NAVARA N-TREK WARRIOR: Built for a serious off-road challenge.<br />

off-road, I learnt many years ago<br />

not to venture off the seal seriously<br />

when alone, so I just poked<br />

around a dry river bed selecting<br />

low ratio only to conquer a couple<br />

of low shingle banks. However,<br />

I can report there was little<br />

chance of challenging the ride<br />

height or approach and departure<br />

angles, the N-Trek Warrior has<br />

substantial off-road ability.<br />

Take into account, too, that<br />

when Nissan introduced the latest<br />

generation Navara it came with a<br />

new rear suspension set-up, the<br />

live axle is located by coil springs<br />

and a multiple linkage set-up, the<br />

sophistication within the mechanicals<br />

is immense.<br />

The engine is pretty much the<br />

same unit that has been around<br />

for several years. It is a twinturbocharged,<br />

twin-camshaft<br />

four-cylinder unit which displaces<br />

2298cc.<br />

Nissan claims healthy power<br />

outputs of 140kW (3750rpm)<br />

and 450Nm, maximum torque<br />

is realised all of the way between<br />

1500rpm and 2500rpm. The latter<br />

provides immediate impetus, and<br />

strong-from-standstill momentum.<br />

Drive is channelled through a<br />

seven-speed automatic gearbox,<br />

it has smooth, almost undetectable<br />

shifts, especially in the first<br />

few gears where it is biased low<br />

so if the ute is laden it hauls freely<br />

from take-off.<br />

• Price – Nissan Navara<br />

N-Trek Warrior, $76,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5385mm; width, 1920mm;<br />

height, 1895mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,<br />

seven-speed automatic.<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7l/100km<br />

On the subject of load, Nissan<br />

claim a tow rating of 3500kg and<br />

a payload weight of 724kg housed<br />

in an area that measures 1503mm<br />

x 1490mm x 474mm.<br />

The Navara is amongst the<br />

most economical of the mainstream<br />

utes in New Zealand.<br />

Nissan claims a seven-litre per<br />

100km combined cycle rating.<br />

The trip computer was reading<br />

around 10l/100km when I took<br />

the test car back to the dealership,<br />

also showing an instantaneous<br />

8l/100km at 100km/h (engine<br />

speed 1750rpm).<br />

There’s been little doubt that<br />

utes are becoming more car-like,<br />

not so much in their in-cabin<br />

features but in the way they drive.<br />

The N-Trek Warrior can be<br />

pushed into a corner with little<br />

fear. What Nissan’s engineers<br />

have done with the rear axle is<br />

genius. It is load bearing to cater<br />

for that heavy item, yet as a vehicle<br />

it has control and balance not<br />

generally experienced before in a<br />

vehicle of this type.<br />

On those gentle undulating<br />

riverbed tracks, the N-Trek<br />

Warrior imparts a comfortable<br />

ride. Even though the tyres<br />

have stiff sidewalls and don’t<br />

absorb a lot of the pounding<br />

from uneven surfaces, the<br />

suspension takes care of that, the<br />

in-cabin experience is completely<br />

acceptable.<br />

The Navara N-Trek Warrior<br />

lands here at $76,990, it tops out<br />

the 10-model range that, incidentally,<br />

starts at $31,990.<br />

I had the evaluation ute for a<br />

week and quickly came to enjoy<br />

its stature. Sure, at almost 5.4m<br />

it is a big vehicle and that needs<br />

to be taken into account in close<br />

confines, those standard metered<br />

car parks in our city are a bit of a<br />

challenge. It’s also a bit of stepup<br />

into the cabin proper, old age<br />

making that just a little bit harder<br />

than it needed to be.<br />

Nevertheless, there are many<br />

advantages in owning a ute, I<br />

used it to shift some of my daughter’s<br />

belongings as she transferred<br />

from one flat to another.<br />

With all of the N-Trek Warrior<br />

enhancements the Navara<br />

will most certainly interest<br />

recreational enthusiasts and<br />

those buyers who want a ute for<br />

commercial use.

Lyttelton Port Company Community Newsletter<br />

Adapting<br />

to our ‘new<br />

normal’<br />

Keeping our people, community<br />

and all Port users safe<br />

continues to be the focus of our<br />

response to COVID-19 at LPC.<br />

We are also working closely with CDHB<br />

on new shore leave requirements for foreign<br />

crew, who must all now test negative to<br />

COVID-19 before they are permitted ashore.<br />

LPC Chief Executive Officer Roger Gray<br />

says the Port is continuing to support the<br />

Seafarer’s Centre, ensuring the safety of<br />

foreign crew that come into Lyttelton.<br />

“Throughout the recent alert level changes,<br />

our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that<br />

we are ready to adapt to any changes that we<br />

need to make so that we can continue to keep<br />

the Port running as an essential link<br />

for Canterbury.<br />

“I’m proud of how we are continuing to<br />

respond, and I’d like to thank our people,<br />

customers and the community for their<br />

We’re proud of the<br />

way our people have<br />

adapted to a ‘new normal’<br />

way of working.<br />

The global pandemic has impacted everyone<br />

this year, but we are proud of the way our<br />

people have stepped up to ensure the Port<br />

keeps moving while keeping health and<br />

safety at the forefront.<br />

The move back up to Alert Level 2 with the<br />

second COVID-19 outbreak in Auckland also<br />

coincided with a stronger focus on protecting<br />

New Zealand’s borders.<br />

Over the last few months, we have<br />

welcomed the continued support of Customs<br />

and New Zealand Defence Force personnel<br />

who are working with our security team to<br />

play a significant part in the government’s<br />

response to COVID-19 at the border.<br />

In September, the Ministry of Health made<br />

it mandatory for our border-facing staff<br />

such as marine pilots, launch crews, cargo<br />

handlers and security staff to be tested every<br />

14 days.<br />

Our COVID-19 response team is working<br />

closely with the Canterbury District Health<br />

Board (CDHB) to have regular testing clinics<br />

in place for our people.

From<br />

construction<br />

to completion:<br />

our cruise<br />

berth<br />

Despite work being halted under COVID-19<br />

Alert Level 4, the cruise berth and supporting<br />

land-side work (including bus shelters and a<br />

small amenity building) remains on track to<br />

be complete next month.<br />

LPC GM Engagement and Sustainability<br />

Phil de Joux is grateful to the harbour<br />

community for their support during the<br />

piling stage of the project.<br />

“We know this has been a noisy process,<br />

and we acknowledge that it could at times be<br />

disruptive to Lyttelton residents and business<br />

owners.<br />

“By providing regular updates on when<br />

piling was expected to occur, we hope we<br />

have helped people to plan around the<br />

anticipated noise and minimise its impact.”<br />

We know the COVID-19 outbreak will have<br />

an impact on this year’s cruise season and<br />

possibly the next one, but the full impact<br />

of the global pandemic on cruising is still<br />

unknown.<br />

“We continue to watch the situation as it<br />

develops and work with relevant industry<br />

interests and agencies to remain informed.<br />

There are numerous factors that affect the<br />

situation, not least of which is how long<br />

border restrictions remain in place,” says Phil.<br />

“We know when cruise ships do return<br />

to Lyttelton, LPC will be ready to welcome<br />

passengers and support the growth of<br />

tourism in Canterbury.”<br />

on the Cruise Berth.<br />

Despite the challenges of<br />

COVID-19, our purposebuilt<br />

cruise berth is set to<br />

be complete next month<br />

– a significant feat in a<br />

challenging year.<br />

We’re proud to be bringing the world’s largest<br />

cruise ships to Canterbury through the<br />

construction of New Zealand’s first-ever<br />

purpose-built cruise ship facility.<br />

Our new berth represents a significant<br />

investment in our region and will be a major<br />

contributor to the future economic growth of<br />

Lyttelton, Christchurch and Canterbury.<br />

Since 2018, a dedicated team of contractors,<br />

project managers and engineers have<br />

worked tirelessly to build the cruise berth,<br />

using innovative techniques and ensuring<br />

the impact to the marine environment<br />

and community in Whakaraupō/Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> has been minimised.<br />

From over 2,000 rock bags carefully placed<br />

for scour protection to 2,500 m³ of concrete<br />

and over 10 kilometres of piles driven to<br />

build the berth, the project has been a feat of<br />

engineering, construction and environmental<br />

protection work.<br />

Designers BECA, HEB Construction,<br />

Genesis Projects, LPC engineers and vital<br />

subcontractors have been key to the cruise<br />

berth’s success, says LPC GM Infrastructure<br />

and Property Mike Simmers.<br />

”Many talented individuals and teams who<br />

are experts in their field have come together<br />

to play a hand in building the cruise berth.<br />

To be standing on it today – on the home<br />

stretch to completion – it’s a great feeling.”<br />

The berth has been built to safely welcome<br />

the full range of cruise vessels, including MS<br />

Oasis of the Seas, which carries over 5,000<br />

passengers and 2,000 staff.<br />

Coal dust resource<br />

consent renewal<br />

LPC is a gateway for<br />

exporting a certain type of<br />

coal to the world called ‘coking<br />

coal’, used as a raw mineral<br />

ingredient in steel production.<br />

In order to be allowed to store and handle<br />

coal for export, LPC requires a consent for<br />

coal dust. With our previous consent due to<br />

expire in 2022, a new consent application is<br />

now being prepared.<br />

Phil de Joux, LPC GM Engagement and<br />

Sustainability, says that while the Resource<br />

Management Act has resulted in stricter<br />

national standards for air quality, LPC is well<br />

positioned to meet them.<br />

“We use a range of controls to minimise coal<br />

dust. For example, on hot, windy days we spray<br />

water on the coal yard to dampen the dust down<br />

– carefully treating all water that comes off site.”<br />

“We will also be installing three additional<br />

dust monitoring stations in Lyttelton to confirm<br />

that coal dust is not causing annoyance or<br />

health effects to the community”, says Phil.<br />

“These stations contain highly sensitive<br />

equipment that continually assess the levels of<br />

very fine particles in the air and allow analysis<br />

of the dust sources in the laboratory, so that we<br />

can quickly address any issues that might occur.”<br />

As part of the consent process LPC will be<br />

undertaking a range of assessments and<br />

investigations regarding coal dust. These<br />

include looking into effects on ecology,<br />

recreation and mahinga kai values, as well as<br />

general nuisance and human health effects.<br />

A 2019 analysis by Source Testing NZ showed<br />

that even on-site in the coal yard, the level of<br />

coal dust exposure was unlikely to result in<br />

adverse health effects for the average worker.<br />

With the new consent application due<br />

mid-20<strong>21</strong>, LPC is consulting with members of<br />

the public to inform the application. Nearby<br />

residents have been advised and community<br />

drop-in sessions will be held so that everyone’s<br />

questions and concerns can be heard.<br />

For enquiries or to register for<br />

regular information updates on<br />

this process, please contact<br />

lpccommunications@lpc.co.nz<br />

or call 03 328 8198<br />

Quick facts:<br />

Approximately 95%<br />

of the coal stored at LPC<br />

is coking coal<br />

Without coking coal,<br />

there would be no steel<br />

and none of today’s<br />

buildings, cars, fridges,<br />

bicycles, surgical equipment,<br />

pots or pans<br />

Coking coal is one of the<br />

three main ingredients<br />

used to make steel<br />

(the other two are iron ore<br />

and limestone)<br />

New Zealand coking coal<br />

is considered some of the<br />

best in the world due to its<br />

high carbon content<br />

Our reefer towers<br />

fully lit at night.<br />

This year, LPC facilitated the export of 31,447<br />

20-foot reefer containers filled with premium<br />

New Zealand products destined for the global<br />

market.<br />

We also imported 11,566 reefers containing<br />

bananas, frozen dairy projects and other<br />

chilled goods enjoyed by South Islanders<br />

every day.<br />

Each tower is 60 metres long and stands<br />

10 metres high and includes the world’s<br />

most advanced reefer monitoring system,<br />

providing real-time data on temperature and<br />

energy consumption.<br />

LPC GM Container Operations Simon<br />

Munt says health and safety benefits are<br />

another substantial benefit gained by<br />

the towers.<br />

“The towers introduce hard engineered<br />

separation between our Reefer Care Team<br />

and the straddles operating in the Container<br />

Terminal. The towers also highlight the<br />

Port’s commitment to supporting hundreds<br />

of New Zealand businesses to take their<br />

goods to the world.”<br />

White noise<br />

alarms to<br />

reduce Port<br />

noise.<br />

If you have noticed that the<br />

Port is a bit quieter than<br />

normal, it is thanks to the<br />

new broadband alarms that<br />

have been installed on our<br />

straddles and other heavy<br />

machinery.<br />

In total, 30 straddles have been converted to<br />

the new alarms, with the aim to have these<br />

alarms in place on all Port and contractor<br />

machinery operating at the Port in the<br />

future.<br />

An initiative driven by the Environmental<br />

team, these alarms replace the tonal alarms<br />

and help us reduce the overall port noise.<br />

LPC Environmental Advisor Dr Crystal<br />

Lenky says new technology and products<br />

mean that we can meet occupational health<br />

and safety requirements while also reducing<br />

noise off site.<br />

The broadband alarms work by producing<br />

white noise across several frequencies, and<br />

while they are as loud as the previous tonal<br />

alarms, they are not as obvious at a distance,<br />

causing less disturbance in the community.<br />

“The tonal alarms were audible at<br />

a considerable distance from the Port<br />

because the tone stands out above the local<br />

background noise – the new broadband<br />

alarms lack those distinctive characteristics,”<br />

says Crystal.<br />

Safety is a priority here at the Port, and<br />

it was essential that the new alarms were<br />

able to alert staff on the ground to moving<br />

machinery around them.<br />

A 3-month trial was completed to<br />

understand any potential risks from the<br />

new alarms, but our team agreed that<br />

the broadband alarms provided a great<br />

awareness to the straddles around them.<br />

05 OUR PEOPLE<br />

From whānau<br />

to kaupapa<br />

Incorporating Māori culture<br />

is becoming an integral<br />

part of how we do things at<br />

LPC, and Te Wiki o te Reo<br />

Māori provided the perfect<br />

opportunity to get our team<br />

started on this journey.<br />

Charting the course is Tahu Stirling (Kai<br />

Tahu, Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Ngāti Whātua,<br />

Ngāti Porou), our newly appointed Māori<br />

Development Advisor who is focusing on<br />

upskilling the company in tikanga Māori,<br />

strengthening partnerships with mana<br />

whenua and developing cultural resources<br />

for staff.<br />

He’s developed a waiata and a haka to<br />

build a unique LPC company culture.<br />

A waiata group now meets every Wednesday<br />

with a core group of staff keen to give te reo a<br />

go or reconnect with their own culture.<br />

The group performed our waiata Kotahi<br />

Te Ra in front of staff as a part of the Māori<br />

Language Moment – an initiative by the Māori<br />

Language Commission to have 1 million people<br />

speaking te reo at midday on 14 September.<br />

Events like this demonstrate how Māori<br />

culture can be used to unify staff and<br />

celebrate our values and our team.<br />

“I think that cultural training gives the staff<br />

here another feather in their cap. I feel lucky to<br />

work with such a diverse group of people, and<br />

I think that, when you learn about another<br />

culture, it’s also about discovering oneself and<br />

the intrinsic principles in your own culture<br />

that show how we are not so different after all.<br />

This is a diverse place, and the culture is the<br />

glue that holds it together,” says Tahu.<br />

During the week, we also ran competitions<br />

to encourage staff to order coffee in te reo and<br />

share their favourite te reo phrases to show how<br />

te reo can be incorporated into everyday life.<br />

While this was our first year participating<br />

in Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, we look forward to<br />

exploring more opportunities for staff to start<br />

their own journey with te reo and tikanga.<br />

local trades and industry,<br />

township and residents.”<br />

From legacy to leadership<br />

– our dry dock<br />

Henry Bastion and Lito<br />

Abarratigue are the energetic<br />

pair in charge of running the<br />

LPC dry dock, a key piece of<br />

Port infrastructure with 137<br />

years behind it and a bright<br />

future ahead.<br />

Dry Dock Master Henry, who came on board<br />

earlier this year, is hugely passionate about<br />

this economic engine that has been humming<br />

away for generations.<br />

“On any given day, we can have up to 300<br />

staff and contractors working here. Not only<br />

do we make a significant contribution to<br />

LPC’s bottom line, we also support a much<br />

larger network of industries from<br />

local engineering firms to businesses in<br />

the township.”<br />

Opened in 1883, the Lyttelton dry dock is<br />

one of just a few Category 1 heritage sites in<br />

the South Island. Now one of just two dry<br />

docks in the country, it continues to serve<br />

a vast customer base, from fishing boats to<br />

research vessels, dredges to superyachts.<br />

Henry recognises the dock’s rich history but<br />

also champions its future development. He<br />

has spearheaded a number of improvements<br />

encompassing operations to infrastructure.<br />

Plans in the works include improved edge<br />

protection and a new amenities block for crew.<br />

“Keeping customers happy and the dock<br />

full of ships is essential to our continued<br />

success. That’s what I’m here to achieve.<br />

I’m also cognisant of managing our<br />

environmental impacts. I believe it’s important<br />

to be upfront about our effects so we can<br />

address them head on.”<br />

Henry is supported by Dry Dock Operator<br />

Lito. Originally from the Philippines, Lito<br />

found his way to the dry dock after starting<br />

at LPC as a carpenter.<br />

“I love working in a port environment.<br />

There’s lots of variety and plenty of good<br />

people around. I like a challenge, and there<br />

are always opportunities to learn here.”<br />

Together, Henry and Lito are excited about<br />

LPC’s future and the role of the dry dock<br />

within that picture.<br />

“Success is something we’re all part of<br />

together – LPC, local trades and industry,<br />

marine businesses, the township and<br />

residents. The dry dock has been doing an<br />

outstanding job for 140-odd years. We want to<br />

honour that legacy and do everything we can<br />

to give it an even stronger future.”<br />

Each year, LPC supports<br />

Foodstuffs South Island<br />

to import thousands<br />

of containers, stocking<br />

supermarket shelves to feed<br />

the South Island.<br />

Foodstuffs South Island is 100% locally<br />

owned and operated. Boasting an impressive<br />

226 retail stores, its presence plays a<br />

significant part in the South Island grocery<br />

market.<br />

There are seven banners operating under<br />

Foodstuffs South Island: Pak’nSave, New<br />

World, Four Square, Raeward Fresh, On the<br />

Spot, Henry’s Beer Wine and Spirits, and<br />

Trents Wholesale.<br />

With a strong focus on providing healthy<br />

and affordable food, Foodstuffs South Island<br />

sources products from local and global<br />

suppliers from Asia, Europe, America, Africa<br />

and Australia.<br />

By partnering with LPC, a substantial<br />

number of items stocked at your local<br />

supermarkets such as flour, coffee, ice-cream<br />

and seafood first enter Christchurch and<br />

New Zealand through Lyttelton Port.<br />

After containers are processed at LPC,<br />

they are sent to Foodstuffs South Island’s<br />

distribution centre in Hornby, Christchurch.<br />

Over 1,000 employees operate the two<br />

facilities seven days a week to help deliver<br />

products to supermarkets. Boosting the<br />

local economy, enhancing infrastructure and<br />

sustainability in supply chains are all important<br />

objectives for Foodstuffs South Island.<br />

Foodstuffs South Island Supply Chain<br />

Development Manager Kris Lancaster<br />

says centralised distribution is key to their<br />

business.<br />

“Keeping the infrastructure logistically<br />

centralised not only reduces lead times and<br />

fuel consumption but provides secure jobs to<br />

local communities.”<br />

During the COVID-19 health crisis, the<br />

relationship between LPC and Foodstuffs South<br />

Island has become increasingly important.<br />

Ensuring the supply chain model is<br />

strong and sound is pivotal to ensuring<br />

South Islanders receive essential products,<br />

especially during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.<br />

“A spike in demand on supermarkets meant<br />

we were under pressure to keep shelves<br />

stocked. There was a rush from consumers to<br />

purchase toilet paper, baby products, cleaning<br />

products and baking products,” says Kris.<br />

Foodstuffs South Island is continuing to<br />

focus on providing goods to South Islanders<br />

through Lyttelton Port.<br />

Fishing<br />

for the<br />

future<br />

LPC is proud to be the home<br />

port for Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Seafood,<br />

a company with a rich history<br />

and focus firmly on the future<br />

of sustainable fishing.<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Longline Fishing was founded<br />

by Greg Summerton, with a vision to<br />

maximise Māori fishery assets through intergenerational<br />

and sustainable growth.<br />

Throughout his 35 years’ experience<br />

operating as a deep-sea captain, Greg has<br />

developed a deep knowledge and appreciation<br />

for the cultural, commercial, environmental<br />

and social imperatives of the New Zealand<br />

seafood industry.<br />

Greg’s whakapapa traces back to<br />

Rākaihautū, Waitaha and Ngāti Māmoe tribes.<br />

His Ngāi Tahu connection is also one of great<br />

importance to him and his whānau and is<br />

evident in the longlining techniques employed<br />

by Greg and his team to this day.<br />

The company’s longline vessel Kawatea is a<br />

38-metre bottom longline fishing vessel, which<br />

is home to a dedicated crew of 16 who spend<br />

six weeks at sea during each trip out in the<br />

Southern Ocean.<br />

Kawatea and its crew can often be seen<br />

loading and unloading in Lyttelton’s inner<br />

harbour. There is always a hive of activity<br />

when the vessel is in Port – seagulls circle, the<br />

crew is focused and the result is high-quality<br />

fish products destined for the global market.<br />

“Fishing is hard work for all the staff<br />

involved. The team is a family who are<br />

looked after well and are provided with<br />

comprehensive risk training, support and<br />

advice to keep them safe at sea and on shore,”<br />

says Greg.<br />

Sustainability is also at the heart of how<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Longline Fishing operates.<br />

“Kawatea is fuelled by a clean renewable<br />

biodiesel blend that has lower exhaust<br />

emissions and breaks down in water,”<br />

‘satellite store’ in the heart of Christchurch.<br />

An accountant by trade, the company’s<br />

owner Andrew Brady purchased the business<br />

four years ago, swapping number crunching<br />

for sourcing the highest quality and affordable<br />

delicacies for his stores.<br />

“Food is such a big part of the Italian culture<br />

– for generations, they have been making<br />

sauces, olive oils, pasta, salami, cheese and wine.<br />

“In the same way that New Zealanders are<br />

food here for South Islanders to enjoy.”<br />

Each year, Mediterranean Food Co. imports<br />

around 16 containers and chilled containers<br />

filled to the brim with beautiful products from<br />

southern Italy, Spain and France.<br />

“From the moment we place our order with<br />

Italian suppliers to when our containers arrive<br />

in Lyttelton, it takes about six weeks.<br />

“When the containers arrive, we sometimes<br />

forget what we’ve ordered – then suddenly the<br />

store is filled with European products for our<br />

customers to enjoy.”<br />

When thinking about the company’s carbon<br />

footprint, Andrew says they work hard to<br />

ensure each container destined for Lyttelton<br />

Port is economically packed, so a lot of time<br />

and effort goes into the ordering process.<br />

Andrew and his team have formed<br />

solid relationships with local growers and<br />

manufacturers in Italy and have continued<br />

to support their businesses through the<br />

COVID-19 outbreak.<br />

“For many of our suppliers, we are a<br />

significant customer, so we’ve been conscious<br />

to continue purchasing their goods this year.”<br />

With a thriving online store and customer<br />

base who love their products, it seems<br />

Mediterranean Food Co. has got the recipe<br />

right for success in the central city.<br />

In 2017, LPC partnered with the Banks<br />

Peninsula Conservation Trust and set out to<br />

restore the 17 hectares of LPC land through<br />

removing weeds and pests and planting<br />

native trees that will ultimately create a<br />

The trees that are planted all start out<br />

as locally collected seeds, which are mostly<br />

grown by the Department of Conservation at<br />

the Motukarara Conservation Nursery.<br />

LPC Head of Environment and<br />

“By using seeds from trees that already<br />

will thrive in the local conditions.”<br />

The 20 species that have been planted<br />

include tōtara, kōwhai, tī kōuka (cabbage<br />

tree) and mātai, creating habitat for species<br />

of native birds, lizards and bugs.<br />

This project would not be possible to<br />

complete alone, and over that time, we have<br />

had multiple organisations, schools and<br />

companies such as Christchurch Airport, as<br />

well as countless community volunteers all<br />

get their hands dirty to help create an area to<br />

be enjoyed now and by future generations.<br />

An important part of this project has been<br />

education, and we work with EnviroSchools<br />

to hold school planting days, encouraging<br />

children to learn more about the environment<br />

in this unique outdoor classroom!<br />

LPC UPDATE <strong>October</strong> <strong>2020</strong>

Penguin nesting boxes<br />

in Whakaraupō<br />

Plugging in<br />

to the future<br />

Dr Crystal Lenky with two<br />

of the decorated penguin<br />

nesting boxes.<br />

LPC is excited to welcome four<br />

new electric vehicles to our<br />

fleet as a part of the transition<br />

to a reduction in carbon<br />

emissions.<br />

Head of Sustainability<br />

and Environment Kim<br />

Kelleher with one of the<br />

new Nissan Leafs.<br />

This project was championed by our<br />

Sustainability Team who, with the help of the<br />

Procurement Team, were able to purchase<br />

three Nissan Leafs and a Nissan eNV200 van.<br />

The Leafs will be used by staff travelling<br />

around Christchurch to visit clients or our<br />

CityDepot and MidlandPort sites, and the<br />

eNV200 will replace the security van, which is<br />

an important part of keeping the Port safe and<br />

secure.<br />

These new vehicles are part of LPC’s wider<br />

Sustainability Strategy, working towards being<br />

net-zero carbon by 2050.<br />

This is only the first step, with plans for<br />

charging stations to be installed around LPC<br />

and a plan to transition our entire light fleet to<br />

electric.<br />

“We know we have a larger challenge with<br />

equipment like straddles, but it’s great to start<br />

the process – electric vehicles are an easy<br />

win,” says LPC Head of Sustainability and<br />

Environment Kim Kelleher.<br />

It’s penguin nesting season,<br />

and LPC is helping our<br />

flippered friends by installing<br />

11 penguin nesting boxes on<br />

Port land.<br />

White-flippered penguins/kororā are only<br />

found in the Canterbury region and breed in<br />

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>, which not<br />

only makes this area unique but essential to<br />

their protection.<br />

Environmental Advisor Dr Crystal Lenky<br />

says installing penguin nesting boxes is<br />

important in establishing safe nesting areas for<br />

the penguins.<br />

“In some areas where penguins nest in<br />

the seawalls, such as Naval Point, they are<br />

vulnerable to predators like dogs, so we hope<br />

that by providing nest boxes and fencing off<br />

areas, we can encourage more penguins to nest<br />

on Port land.”<br />

This project saw LPC partner with<br />

Fulton Hogan, who built, decorated and<br />

donated eight boxes and also enlisted the help<br />

of Best Start Primary School in Burnside to<br />

decorate some of them.<br />

“White-flippered penguins are so special<br />

to this area, so it’s great to see the community<br />

getting involved and helping out,” says<br />

Crystal.<br />

Crystal was also conscious about<br />

the boxes being sustainable, so left-over<br />

materials and scraps from the Port were used<br />

to construct them.<br />

These 11 boxes are a great way to support<br />

white-flippered penguins, and if successful, this<br />

will be just the start of more boxes installed<br />

around Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Together Apart<br />

Lyttelton<br />

Together Apart Lyttelton is an<br />

art gallery installation at Te<br />

Ana Marina featuring photos<br />

of Lyttelton residents during<br />

the Alert Level 4 lockdown<br />

taken by local photographer<br />

Justyn Denney-Boarston.<br />

The project came about when the<br />

announcement was made that the country<br />

was going into lockdown in March.<br />

Justyn knew that this time would bring<br />

a great level of uncertainty and unease for<br />

everyone and chose to capture this.<br />

The project started out small, just with<br />

friends being photographed, but grew to<br />

involve strangers, with Justyn out daily to<br />

capture people through their windows.<br />

With funding from Creative New Zealand,<br />

Justyn was able to turn this project into an<br />

exhibition, choosing Te Ana Marina as a great<br />

location for the public to enjoy the pictures<br />

and reminisce about their own lockdown<br />

experiences.<br />

“During the period of lockdown, the<br />

Lyttelton community came to use the Marina<br />

space as a location of respite. It was where<br />

we picnicked, let small ones ride scooters<br />

in safety and hoped for a glimpse of our<br />

neighbours from afar. It is in this spirit that<br />

I would open this exhibition,” says Justyn.<br />

The exhibition launched on Saturday 26<br />

September, with music, entertainment and<br />

food to support the unveiling of the photos<br />

and celebrate the strength of the Lyttelton<br />

community.<br />

The pictures will be on display for a<br />

month, so make sure you head down to the<br />

waterfront at Te Ana Marina to view the<br />

exhibition if you haven’t already.<br />
