Bully Hayes

restaurant

rebranding

delayed

due to

Covid-19

• By Matt Slaughter

THE RENAMING of Bully

Hayes Restaurant & Bar has been

delayed because of the financial

impacts of Covid-19.

The Akaroa restaurant, which

has been called Bully Hayes for

25 years, came under fire in June

for glorifying Bully Hayes, a

19th-century United States ship

captain who has been accused of

human trafficking, and abducting

and raping young women and

children in the Pacific.

Owner Wayne Jones said the renaming

will still happen but only

when the business is in a financial

position to do this.

Since the controversy, the name

has been changing temporarily on

a weekly basis, but a permanent

name change has been settled on.

Currently it is being called Bully

Stays.

Jones originally planned to

change the name this month but

rebranding will cost between

$20,000 and $30,000. He said his

main priorities at the moment are

keeping staff employed and the

restaurant surviving the summer.

McLellan gets to work after big win

• By Louis Day

LABOUR’S TRACEY McLellan

is feeling “incredibly humbled”

after being elected MP for the

newly-formed Banks Peninsula

electorate.

Election night saw Labour

dominate the party vote across

Greater Christchurch and claim

every electorate except for Selwyn

and Waimakariri.

McLellan recorded a

resounding victory over

National’s Catherine Chu in

the race to become MP for the

peninsula, receiving 22,038 votes,

more than double Chu’s 10,834.

She said she was “incredibly

humbled” to receive such strong

support from constituents and

promised to put everything into

her new role.

“I will do my very best to

advocate for them [people of the

Banks Peninsula] as Labour rolls

out its rebuild programme,” she

said.

“I am a good listener, I’m a

good observer, I know how to

bring people together and that is

the first task for us, to build up

those relationships that we made

during the campaign and get to

the nub of what our communities

need.”

There was a degree of

uncertainty around who would

new Ilam MP Sarah Pallett.

become the MP for the new

electorate after Labour stalwart

Ruth Dyson, who had presided

over the area for 27 years

under several different seats,

announced her retirement. A

boundary change also added

6500 people into the Banks

Peninsula electorate from the

traditionally National voting

YOUR LOCAL

ACCOUNTANT

I COME

TO YOU

Selwyn electorate. However, this

did not have a telling impact

on McLellan’s pursuit for

Parliament.

McLellan thought recovery

from the pandemic, sustainable

tourism, jobs, the environment

and housing are the key issues for

her new electorate.

At the moment she lives

outside the electorate but plans to

move within it.

“I do have plans to move in,

yes, my Trade Me watch list is

filling up. It is just a question of

when and where and making

those options available to

myself.”

McLellan has been a member

of the Labour Party since 2011

and became acting party president

following Nigel Harworth’s

resignation over the handling of

sexual abuse claims made against

party members. She is currently

senior vice president of the party.

Politics runs in the family, her

son Jake is a city councillor and a

fellow Labour Party member.

Before McLellan entered

politics, she spent a number

of years working in clinical

research after getting her PhD in

psychology.

Her focus was on dementia

disorders and what happens in

the aftermath of a childhood

brain injury. She was also an

organiser for the New Zealand

Nurses Organisation but resigned

on Sunday after securing a seat in

Parliament.

Akaroa: Domestic tourist destination

While Akaroa adjusts to

life without an influx of

cruise ship passengers

and overseas tourists,

fresh opportunities in

the domestic tourism

sector could be on

the horizon. Louis Day

reports

PANDEMIC-related restrictions

on international travel may

present problems for the tourism

industry with the international

tourist tap running dry, but these

same restrictions also present

great opportunity in retaining

New Zealanders who would

usually spend overseas.

A study from Deloitte forecasted

there could be up to $8.2

billion that would typically be

spent overseas by New Zealanders

being retained within the

country’s borders due to the

pandemic.

“This does represent an opportunity

for regions to ‘redirect’

and ‘retain’ some of the expenditure

that New Zealanders would

have spent overseas,” the study

states.

The organisation predicts that

this “retained spending” opportunity

could be worth $1 billion

to Canterbury.

Akaroa District Promotions

tourism marketing manager Jane

Scribner thought what the town

had to offer could see it getting a

“decent slice of the pie.”

“We think we provide attractions

and experiences that suit

most markets, families, couples,

seniors, the only thing we don’t

have is a raging nightlife,” she

said.

As the region’s oldest town,

with French culture pulsating

throughout its foundations, a

testament to its history of being

settled by the French in 1840,

it offers the domestic tourist an

international escape without

having to leave the country.

French street names, flags and

francophones which dominate

the town’s landscape gives

Akaroa the European flavour it is

famous for.

French Peak Vineyard is an

example of the lasting impression

the town’s past is having on its

present.

PRECIOUS:

Whiteflippered

penguins can

be found in

Pohatu Bay

which is only

a short drive

from Akaroa’s

town centre.

Owner, French-born Renan

Cataliotti, came to Akaroa 12

years ago with the intentions

of staying one night. However,

he ended up meeting his wife

in the town and has stayed ever

since.

He believed his business gave

customers a French-themed

experience which complemented

the flavour of the area.

“People come here and see this

French guy and French farm

and the wine has quite a French

influence in the way it is made as

well,” he said.

The 3.5ha vineyard where the

grapes for the wine are grown sit

in the centre of an ancient volcano

which Cataliotti said gave

the wine a very unique taste.

“The soil, the climate, it is the

only place in New Zealand where

the soil has no limestone, just

clay and volcanic soil. It gives it a

very nice, subtle and very delicate

feel, it is very pure and very clean

like the peninsula,” he said.

Cataliotti said the town’s

french community of about 20

people was growing year by year

as French backpackers passed

through the area and decided to

settle, just as their ancestors did

in the 1800s.

Part of the town’s french cohort

is Kevin Parthonnaud. He acts

as the general manager of the

Pohatu Penguin colony.

with international flair

His story is similar to Cataliotti’s.

He came to New Zealand

with a working holiday visa and

“three words of English.”

When he discovered Pohatu

Bay, he fell in love and fell in

love again when he met Averil,

the niece of Shireen and Francis

Helps who founded the colony.

He is now happily married to

Averil and alongside her helps

keep the colony going which

now has more than 1264 pairs of

white-flippered penguins.

The colony, which is more than

30 years old is the largest of its

kind in mainland New Zealand.

It is completely funded by tourism

so relies on people going for

tours.

Parthonnaud said the setting of

the colony also provided visitors

with a unique experience with the

penguins.

“You can witness the penguins

socialising on the water and like

rafting on it which is quite a

unique point,” he said.

Tours of the colony also allow

guests to get up close and personal

with the penguins by visiting

the small homes they live in.

The French settled town also offers

the opportunity for visitors to

witness the wonder of the hector’s

dolphin.

Black Cat Cruises allows people

to view the world’s rarest and

smallest oceanic dolphin in its

natural habitat. The company

offers boat cruises as well as immersive

swimming experiences

with the doplhins.

Hector’s dolphins are endemic

to New Zealand, meaning they

are not found anywhere else in

the world. Furthermore, Akaroa

is the only place in the country

where it is possible to swim with

them.

Chief executive Paul Milligan

thought the experience

would satisfy the desires of New

Zealander’s longing for the type

of adventure you would expect

overseas.

“Plenty of Kiwis do take an

overseas trip at some point and

now they can’t and perhaps they

are looking for those types of

experiences they would get overseas

here in New Zealand, that is

certainly something we can offer,”

he said.

ADVENTURE: Black Cat Cruises gets visitors up close and

personal with the endangered hector’s dolphin that can

only be found in New Zealand.

Great fire of Lyttelton subject of exhibition

IT WAS after 10pm on October

24, 1870, when a fire started in

an empty house on Lyttelton’s

Oxford St between the Queen’s

Hotel and a boot-maker’s shop.

The flames quickly spread

through nearby shops until both

sides of London St were burning.

The fire raged along Oxford St and

Norwich Quay through wooden

houses, stables, a warehouse full

of wheat and two ship chandler’s

(marine equipment) shops and

then set most of the township

ablaze in spite of the desperate efforts

of the local brigade.

Some of the drama of that

night is captured in a new exhibition

called Sifting the Ashes:

The Great Fire of Lyttelton that

has been researched and put together

by Lyttelton Library staff

for the Christchurch Heritage

Festival.

The display will feature

original sources describing the

progress of the fire, attempts to

control it, and its aftermath as

the damage was assessed and the

town rebuilt. Lyttelton Museum

has given the library permission

to use photos from its collection.

City council head of libraries

Carolyn Robertson said the

exhibition is a response to the

community’s strong interest

in local history and staff have

gathered material from library

archives, digital maps and other

resources.

“The fire was a momentous

event and one that many

Christchurch residents might

not be aware of. The Heritage

Festival is an opportunity to

remember and inform people

about the city’s past. There are so

many stories to explore and uncover

and some great resources

available through the library to

use for research.”

On that night 150 years ago,

the brightness of the sky above

the Port Hills alerted people in

Christchurch to the fire and reinforcements

travelled to the port

by train, including a steam fire

engine that was hurriedly loaded

on board.

The huge blaze was finally

brought under control, but by

that time most of the commercial

area of Lyttelton had been

destroyed with over £100,000

worth of damage.

At the time it was the worst

urban fire in New Zealand’s

history.

A newspaper report the following

day described the chaotic

scene as “terrifically grand”.

DESTROYED: At the time, the port

fire was the worst urban blaze in New

Zealand.

•Sifting the Ashes: The Great Fire of

Lyttelton, at Lyttelton Library, runs until

November 14. Open Monday to Friday

10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.

“…the whole block, some three

acres in area, being one solid

mass of fire, lighting up the harbour

and surrounding hills.

“The scene on the reclaimed

land was of a most painful

character, women and children

being huddled together on

heaps of furniture, utterly

homeless, and only partially

clothed.”

• From page 1

The city council has now

launched an investigation

into how the 45 sirens can

be upgraded along the

coastline between Taylors

Mistake and Brooklands.

City council head of civil

defence emergency management

Rob Orchard said

the sirens did not comply

with two components of

the technical standard, but

it was still an effective tool

used to warn people of an

imminent tsunami on the

coast.

“The sirens though are

only one of the tools we

would use if a tsunami

was coming our way,” he

said.

“If we get information

that a distant source

is what we’re heading into

in November. Our focus

is on keeping my staff

employed and paying their

wages.”

He would know by

March if the business has

been able to recover from

tsunami generated from

across the Pacific Ocean or

a regional source tsunami

generated from the eastern

North Island is likely to hit

our coastline, we will use

all available channels to

get that message out to the

public.”

If you hear the tsunami

sirens, Orchard said to

check if there is an official

tsunami warning for your

zone; either red, orange or

yellow.

“The warning is given

on the radio, television,

social media or through an

Emergency Mobile Alert to

your phone. If there is an

announcement to evacuate

the zone you are in, follow

the instructions immediately,’’

he said.

Covid.

The restaurant has

recently changed to its

summer menu which Jones

said cost about $3000. The

original plan was to do

the naming rebrand at the

same time.

Investigation launched

into upgrading sirens

If a tsunami came from

a local source, there would

not be enough time to

activate the sirens.

“In that case, the best

warning sign is the earthquake

itself,” said Orchard.

“If you are near the

coast and you experience

a strong earthquake that is

difficult to stand up in, or

lasts for a minute or more,

you should immediately

move to higher ground or

as far inland as possible.’’

Orchard said he is investigating

how the city’s

sirens could be upgraded so

they comply with NEMA’s

Technical Standard.

He will bring a report

back to the sustainability

and community resilience

committee.

Cows rescued after animal shelter failure

A YOUNG woman’s attempt to

care for a few cows snowballed,

ending in almost 190 cows

being malnourished and in poor

condition after the numbers got

out of hand and she did not have

enough funds or manpower to

care for and feed them all.

In desperation and with her

rescued cows facing slaughter or

being euthanised, Canterbury

woman Jasmine Hubber – who

runs Til the Cows Came Home –

called in the help of Huha (Helping

You Help Animals).

It has spent the past five weeks

and $28,000 on veterinary

bills and providing feed for the

various breeds of cows located in

eight different paddocks around

Christchurch.

Huha is now facing the ambitious

task of re-homing all of

them as pets.

Hubber said the situation

worsened after lockdown when a

grazier who had been contracted

to care for 60 cows failed to do

so.

While they were there one of

the bulls being grazed nearby got

into paddock and impregnated

20 cows which all had calves.

The Ministry for Primary Industries

insisted the underweight

cows be moved immediately, and

it was the new neighbour that

alerted MPI for a second time

as there wasn’t enough grass for

them in the paddock, she said.

“The property they were on

when we moved them from the

grazier was 16ha and it had a lot

POOR CONDITION: One of the underweight animals at the Til the Cows Come Home

rescue shelter which was unable to care for 190 cows in its care. PHOTO: HUHA

of grass when they first arrived,

but it just couldn’t sustain them

for more than two months,” she

said.

“It’s kind of been a build up

over the six months and everything

got too much.”

Hubber said it had been a big

learning process and she had

learnt that she couldn’t take in

every cow, especially as she had

been trying to do the majority of

it on her own.

Press-McKenzie said she was

heartbroken when she first saw

the cows in the paddock five

weeks ago.

Press-McKenzie said Til the

Cows Came Home had struggled

with the care of the animals to

the point that it was impacting

the cows’ health.

“The first thing affecting me

was how serious it was . . . my

heart broke when I saw the cows.

They looked empty and they

were bellowing and there was

no food. I was devastated about

what they had been through

to get into that condition and I

knew that it had been a long slow

journey to get that hungry.”

Til the Cows Came Home had

been running for two years and

had taken in small herds of cows

and bobby calves, but had failed

to re-home the animals to make

room for more.

“Somewhere along the line she

got some bum advice and neglected

to castrate the little boy

calves and then what has happened

is there’s been an awful lot

of breeding and overcrowding

and there’s been situations where

there’s been grass and not the

capacity to buy the food and feed

required.”

Some of the young heifers who

were pregnant were too young to

carry the pregnancy to term so

some of those had to be aborted,

while another could not be

helped and had to be euthanised.

Others were extremely emaciated

but were recovering after

being fed with the help of local

farmers.

Under Huha’s instruction,

local vet clinics were also called

on to de horn, vaccinate, drench

and pregnancy test the female

cows and neuter the males.

The cows range from bottle

feeders to eight or nine-yearsold

and were a mix of friesian,

jerseys, galloways, angus and

hereford.

But now five weeks on most

of the cows are either in good

health - a vast change from when

she first saw them and thought

about a third would not survive

– or on the road to recovery.

Press-McKenzie’s believed only

five cows plus the unborn calves

had been euthanised due to the

hard work of MPI, the local

farmers and vets and Huha.

She said looking after

that many cows was a huge

undertaking for anyone both

physically and financially – let

alone a 20-year-old.

Otago pinot noirs on parade

OFTEN WHEN I’m deciding on

what I’m going to taste for this

a bit of variety.

I’ve been working on a few

Juicy and vibrant, the sweet

Tasty Bites

Simple frittata for a lazy Sunday dinner

THIS SIMPLE, tasty vegetable

frittata is perfect to cook on a lazy

Sunday night.

It can be prepared and cooked

in about 40min and only needs a

green salad to accompany it.

It is also nice cold so is great to

make for a picnic.

It is best if you have a frying

pan that can be put in the oven,

although the frittata can easily

be made without one. When the

frittata has been cooked up to the

stage when it is to be put under

the grill, place a large flat plate or

oven tray over the frying pan and

turn the pan over so that the frittata

is turned out onto it.

Then place a second plate (or

tray) over the frittata and turn it all

over again so that the frittata is now

sitting top side up. Finally, place the

frying pan on top and turn it all

over again so that the frittata is now

upside down in the pan.

Place the pan back on the stove

to finish cooking the top.

This recipe will need a frying

pan about 30cm in diameter.

Impossible: My Story

by Stan Walker

A startling and important memoir about family and forgiveness, love and redemption.

For the first time, Stan Walker speaks with startling honesty about

abuse and addiction, hardship and excess, cancer and

discrimination, and growing up in a family where love

and violence were horribly entwined.

From one of the finest singers to emerge from Australia

and New Zealand Aotearoa in a generation, Impossible

is a story of redemption and the power of forgiveness.

It’s also a story about courage and hope; about a young

Maori boy finding his place and purpose, never forgetting

who he is and where he came from.

This Is Not How It Ends

How Rewriting Your Story Can Save Your Life

by Jehan Casinader

A BOOK OF HEALING AND HOPE BY NEW ZEALAND TV JOURNALIST JEHAN

CASINADER.

As an award-winning TV journalist, Jehan Casinader told other people’s

stories - until he lost control of his own. Severely depressed, he tried

everything - from mindfulness to massage; Prozac to Pilates. Was

something missing?

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

and how the power of storytelling helped him to survive. He argues that

many of us think our brains are broken, but in fact, our stories are broken.

Jehan began an experiment on himself. Could he rewrite his past? Could he

reinvent his character? Could he create a whole new plot?

This gritty, vulnerable book will challenge readers’ understanding of mental

distress, and give them the tools to reshape their own life stories.

Will they be strong enough to overcome the forces which threaten to tear

their family apart?

slowly for around 10-15 minutes,

taking care not to burn the bottom

of the fittata. The top should

still be a bit runny in the centre

but the edges should be firm.

Remove from the heat and

grate over a little parmesan or

tasty cheese. Place the pan under

a hot grill until the top is set and

starting to brown up a little.

Remove from the oven and let

the frittata sit for a couple of minutes

before sliding it out of the

pan and cutting it into wedges.

****

A frittata lends itself to all sorts

of fillings. Try smoked fish and

potato. Peel and boil some potatoes

until they are just tender.

New potatoes are particularly

good for this. Cook a few onions

in butter until soft, then add

the potato, some frozen peas or

asparagus if it is in season, and

the beaten egg mixture.

Cook as described above then,

before placing it under the grill,

flake over the smoked fish and

grated cheese.

Opinion

Action and Opportunities in

Skills and Employment

By Karen Haigh

As COVID causes economic

disruption worldwide, one of the

most significant impacts is on

people’s jobs.

Many of us have had our

livelihoods affected in some way

by COVID - some by

redundancy, some by a reduction

in hours, or even by a reduction

in remuneration.

It’s clear our school leavers and

graduates will face a very

different outlook when they

finish their qualifications at the

end of the year.

As the city’s sustainable economic

development agency,

ChristchurchNZ is working

towards socio-economic

recovery and supporting our

workforce is a key piece of that

vital work.

ChristchurchNZ is helping identify opportunities for people to reskill and move into other sectors

So, what’s the situation?

Canterbury has seen a 63%

increase in job seekers since the

beginning of the year, with the

regional unemployment rate

rising to 5.1% from 3.2% in

January of this year. The average

number of hours worked is down

10% from a year ago.

As well as impacting around

9,000 jobs, this tighter job market

has a knock-on impact on other

areas including those about to

join the workforce. We will have

over 7,000 school leavers and

almost 10,000 tertiary graduates

in the region facing an uncertain

future come the end of the year.

Higher unemployment impacts

more significantly on those in

lower skilled roles and our

vulnerable populations – Māori;

Pasifika; young people not in

employment, education or

training; and our long-term

unemployed.

And what are we doing?

We are supporting the journey

for labour market priority groups

– school leavers, tertiary

graduates, NEET (young people

not in employment, education or

training), impacted workers,

Māori and industry.

To ensure work isn’t duplicated,

and to identify gaps, we are

mapping the support available

from iwi, central and local

government agencies, our

education providers, charitable

trusts, and other support groups.

Impact projects can then be

delivered to provide support

where needed.

It is critical we ensure our

community has access to the

information they need, and is

aware of the help available.

ChristchurchNZ is developing

regional information resources

and working to ensure this gets

into the hands of those who

need it.

We are also developing a

Regional Workforce Plan that

identifies the skills available and

needed now and in the future.

This plan will inform central

government investment and

policy in education, immigration

and community interventions;

and will enable us to better

understand what skills

Christchurch’s future economy

will require. That in turn will

allow us to work with education

providers to ensure the right

courses are offered.

In times of recession we generally

see an increase in people

choosing to study.

This is an opportunity to upskill

Canterbury’s relatively

poorly-educated workforce for

our future economy, to generate

more and better jobs, to increase

productivity, and to raise living

standards and wellbeing.

We are supporting Ngāi Tahu’s

development of an iwi skills hub

that will create stronger pathways

for young Māori into tertiary

education and skilled jobs.

high-growth areas. We are also

seeking to future-proof

Canterbury’s labour market

- we know how vital it is to create

new jobs to ensure people have

employment options now and

in the longer term.

We have invested in a city-wide

innovation and entrepreurship

ecosystem partnership to support

high-growth potential businesses

and future job creation in areas

of regional strength and global

growth opportunity. These

Supernodes are Aerospace and

Future Transport; Food, Fibre

and Agritech; Health Tech and

Resilient Communities; and

High-Tech Services.

Our business attraction team is

working to attract additional

businesses and jobs to the region.

While we expect ongoing

economic disruption, there

are many green shoots and

opportunities – one of which is

to develop a workforce that is

highly skilled and can support a

thriving and globally competitive

future economy.

Healthtech is a flourishing sector in Canterbury

Among other projects, we are

working with education partners

and mana whenua to increase

aspiration and participation of

students in low-decile schools in

future-focused tertiary study that

will lead to careers in

Every Day is Open Day

Once again, the New Zealand educational curriculum is

in the firing line – and it is perhaps hard to argue that it

shouldn’t be.* On the all-important international stage, the

latest data from PISA, the Programme for International

Student Assessment, indicates our Kiwi kids are on the

slide. The downward trend in results over the last decade

shows a lost equivalent of three to six terms of schooling in

the key subjects of Reading, Maths and Science.

This is despite a 32% increase in per-child spending since

2001 and, in Christchurch at least, the construction of

purpose-built modern learning environments deliberately

designed to foster the national curriculum’s child-centred

orthodoxy.

Of course, every child should be at the heart of their own

learning. How could they now be! But let’s not throw the

baby out with the bathwater. A child’s education should be

a balance of subject knowledge; essential skills; teaching

programmes developed to suit their demonstrated

knowledge, understanding and progress; and assessment

that offers you, your child and their teachers, honesty and

evidence of this progress.

All parents, teachers and coaches know that children learn

best when they are interested in what they are learning.

Making subject knowledge and skills

interesting is the ongoing and exciting

challenge for all of us who educate and

motivate our children.

Located in the heart of our city, St

Michael’s has been educating and

nurturing the children of Christchurch

for 169 years. For our young pupils

have limitless potential to lead exciting

and generous lives, and we have the

responsibility to educate and inspire

them, to encourage every child to flourish

in mind, body and spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls and

boys in Years 1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation

for secondary school, a foundation for a

fine life. For at the heart of St Michael’s

are the essential values of Christian faith

and good citizenship: respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education at the primary level is

a great gift. Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20

pupils, ensuring your child is an individual, well known by

staff and fellow pupils alike.

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are

assured. This academic rigour then underpins our wider

curriculums in History, Geography, Science and Spanish.

IT literacy is taught, not assumed, and computer use is

measured. We like teaching and talking to our pupils!

A prep education offers balance. St Michael’s cultural

and sports’ programmes further develop your child’s

foundation, as creativity and problem-solving come in

many forms. Specialist art and music classes are enjoyed

weekly. We have three choirs, and most pupils participate

in instrumental or speech & drama lessons with our ten

itinerant staff.

Nestled on the banks of the Avon, opposite the Riverside

Farmers’ Market, our extended campus is spectacular: the

Art Gallery, Museum, Tūranga – the

central library, and Hagley Park are

just minutes away.

Many of our parents now work in

the thriving city centre or Lincoln

and Riccarton Road hubs, but they

live city-wide. They comment on the

comfort of knowing their children are

in school nearby and the benefits of

popping over for an hour to catch a

performance or watch a race. With the

central exchange only a block away,

senior children arrive by bus from all

corners of the city.

You and your child are warmly

welcome to discover our purposeful,

wholehearted and inclusive prep

school. Our next Open Day is

coming up, on Tuesday 3 November. Pop in during

the day between 8.30am – 4.00pm for a tour, and to

book an appointment on the day with the principal,

please contact registrar, Bec Hitchcock: registrar@

Navara that stands out in a crowd

SALES OF THE traditional fourwheel-drive

double cab ute in

New Zealand are showing no sign

of slowing.

There are a multitude of

pick-ups in today’s market, and

competition between the major

manufacturers is fierce.

Most manufacturers offer

dress-up kits and accessories

that will give your ute a point of

difference. There are also many

choices in terms of limited edition

models that complement the

mainstream range.

One of those is Nissan’s Navara

N-Trek Warrior, it’s full of kit and

adornments that make it stand

out in the crowd; it is bold, brash

and downright aggressive and it

also looks as if it is here to stay

such is the detail that has gone

into the model.

Alongside the elements which

make the N-Trek Warrior stand

out, it is also plush with a heap

of kit that also takes it up a level

in terms of refinement. Major

features include satellite navigation,

orange-stitched and twotone

leather and cloth trim with

heated front seats, keyless entry

and ignition, rear and overhead

view camera system, touch

screen display, Apple CarPlay and

Android Auto, cruise control and

all the safety gear to earn it a fivestar

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

Cabin comfort is high and

space is plentiful. The deck area

doesn’t compromise greatly the

rear seating area, and the rake

on those uprights is sufficient so

that travel in the rear over long

distances isn’t compromised.

It’s one thing to dress up a

model, but if those accessories are

going to hinder the working role

or its ability off-the-seal then I

can’t really see the point. However,

Nissan have gone one step

further with the N-Trek Warrior,

it’s four-wheel-drive ability is

enhanced through massive tyres,

the high profile Cooper rubber

(215/70 x 17in) provides the

N-Trek Warrior with substantial

off-road ability. Such are the size

of the tyres (32in in diameter)

that ground clearance has been

raised substantially up to 268mm.

Nissan had to do a lot of development

work to make these tyres

work on the vehicle, it required a

suspension lift and some alterations

so that the rubber wouldn’t

grab any of the mechanicals

when suspension travel was at its

greatest. The shock absorbers are

also a special specification for the

Warrior, providing that compliance

needed for comfort.

The result is a formidable offroad

ute in terms of looks and

four-wheel-drive ability. Now,

I’m not saying I evaluated the N-

Trek Warrior to an extreme level

FEATURES: Body kit and huge wheels give the Navara an

aggressive stance.

NISSAN NAVARA N-TREK WARRIOR: Built for a serious off-road challenge.

off-road, I learnt many years ago

not to venture off the seal seriously

when alone, so I just poked

around a dry river bed selecting

low ratio only to conquer a couple

of low shingle banks. However,

I can report there was little

chance of challenging the ride

height or approach and departure

angles, the N-Trek Warrior has

substantial off-road ability.

Take into account, too, that

when Nissan introduced the latest

generation Navara it came with a

new rear suspension set-up, the

live axle is located by coil springs

and a multiple linkage set-up, the

sophistication within the mechanicals

is immense.

The engine is pretty much the

same unit that has been around

for several years. It is a twinturbocharged,

twin-camshaft

four-cylinder unit which displaces

2298cc.

Nissan claims healthy power

outputs of 140kW (3750rpm)

and 450Nm, maximum torque

is realised all of the way between

1500rpm and 2500rpm. The latter

provides immediate impetus, and

strong-from-standstill momentum.

Drive is channelled through a

seven-speed automatic gearbox,

it has smooth, almost undetectable

shifts, especially in the first

few gears where it is biased low

so if the ute is laden it hauls freely

from take-off.

• Price – Nissan Navara

N-Trek Warrior, $76,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5385mm; width, 1920mm;

height, 1895mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9sec

• Fuel usage – 7l/100km

On the subject of load, Nissan

claim a tow rating of 3500kg and

a payload weight of 724kg housed

in an area that measures 1503mm

x 1490mm x 474mm.

The Navara is amongst the

most economical of the mainstream

utes in New Zealand.

Nissan claims a seven-litre per

100km combined cycle rating.

The trip computer was reading

around 10l/100km when I took

the test car back to the dealership,

also showing an instantaneous

8l/100km at 100km/h (engine

speed 1750rpm).

There’s been little doubt that

utes are becoming more car-like,

not so much in their in-cabin

features but in the way they drive.

The N-Trek Warrior can be

pushed into a corner with little

fear. What Nissan’s engineers

have done with the rear axle is

genius. It is load bearing to cater

for that heavy item, yet as a vehicle

it has control and balance not

generally experienced before in a

vehicle of this type.

On those gentle undulating

riverbed tracks, the N-Trek

Warrior imparts a comfortable

ride. Even though the tyres

have stiff sidewalls and don’t

absorb a lot of the pounding

from uneven surfaces, the

suspension takes care of that, the

in-cabin experience is completely

acceptable.

The Navara N-Trek Warrior

lands here at $76,990, it tops out

the 10-model range that, incidentally,

starts at $31,990.

I had the evaluation ute for a

week and quickly came to enjoy

its stature. Sure, at almost 5.4m

it is a big vehicle and that needs

to be taken into account in close

confines, those standard metered

car parks in our city are a bit of a

challenge. It’s also a bit of stepup

into the cabin proper, old age

making that just a little bit harder

than it needed to be.

Nevertheless, there are many

advantages in owning a ute, I

used it to shift some of my daughter’s

belongings as she transferred

from one flat to another.

With all of the N-Trek Warrior

enhancements the Navara

will most certainly interest

recreational enthusiasts and

those buyers who want a ute for

commercial use.

Lyttelton Port Company Community Newsletter

Adapting

to our ‘new

normal’

Keeping our people, community

and all Port users safe

continues to be the focus of our

response to COVID-19 at LPC.

We are also working closely with CDHB

on new shore leave requirements for foreign

crew, who must all now test negative to

COVID-19 before they are permitted ashore.

LPC Chief Executive Officer Roger Gray

says the Port is continuing to support the

Seafarer’s Centre, ensuring the safety of

foreign crew that come into Lyttelton.

“Throughout the recent alert level changes,

our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that

we are ready to adapt to any changes that we

need to make so that we can continue to keep

the Port running as an essential link

for Canterbury.

“I’m proud of how we are continuing to

respond, and I’d like to thank our people,

customers and the community for their

support as we navigate these uncharted

waters.”

We’re proud of the

way our people have

adapted to a ‘new normal’

way of working.

The global pandemic has impacted everyone

this year, but we are proud of the way our

people have stepped up to ensure the Port

keeps moving while keeping health and

safety at the forefront.

The move back up to Alert Level 2 with the

second COVID-19 outbreak in Auckland also

coincided with a stronger focus on protecting

New Zealand’s borders.

Over the last few months, we have

welcomed the continued support of Customs

and New Zealand Defence Force personnel

who are working with our security team to

play a significant part in the government’s

response to COVID-19 at the border.

In September, the Ministry of Health made

it mandatory for our border-facing staff

such as marine pilots, launch crews, cargo

handlers and security staff to be tested every

14 days.

Our COVID-19 response team is working

closely with the Canterbury District Health

Board (CDHB) to have regular testing clinics

in place for our people.

From

construction

to completion:

our cruise

berth

Despite work being halted under COVID-19

Alert Level 4, the cruise berth and supporting

land-side work (including bus shelters and a

small amenity building) remains on track to

be complete next month.

LPC GM Engagement and Sustainability

Phil de Joux is grateful to the harbour

community for their support during the

piling stage of the project.

“We know this has been a noisy process,

and we acknowledge that it could at times be

disruptive to Lyttelton residents and business

owners.

“By providing regular updates on when

piling was expected to occur, we hope we

have helped people to plan around the

anticipated noise and minimise its impact.”

We know the COVID-19 outbreak will have

an impact on this year’s cruise season and

possibly the next one, but the full impact

of the global pandemic on cruising is still

unknown.

“We continue to watch the situation as it

develops and work with relevant industry

interests and agencies to remain informed.

There are numerous factors that affect the

situation, not least of which is how long

border restrictions remain in place,” says Phil.

“We know when cruise ships do return

to Lyttelton, LPC will be ready to welcome

passengers and support the growth of

tourism in Canterbury.”

HEB Construction

Project Manager Gerome

Mangalus with LPC

GM Infrastructure and

Property Mike Simmers

on the Cruise Berth.

Despite the challenges of

COVID-19, our purposebuilt

cruise berth is set to

be complete next month

– a significant feat in a

challenging year.

We’re proud to be bringing the world’s largest

cruise ships to Canterbury through the

construction of New Zealand’s first-ever

purpose-built cruise ship facility.

Our new berth represents a significant

investment in our region and will be a major

contributor to the future economic growth of

Lyttelton, Christchurch and Canterbury.

Since 2018, a dedicated team of contractors,

project managers and engineers have

worked tirelessly to build the cruise berth,

using innovative techniques and ensuring

the impact to the marine environment

and community in Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour has been minimised.

From over 2,000 rock bags carefully placed

for scour protection to 2,500 m³ of concrete

and over 10 kilometres of piles driven to

build the berth, the project has been a feat of

engineering, construction and environmental

protection work.

Designers BECA, HEB Construction,

Genesis Projects, LPC engineers and vital

subcontractors have been key to the cruise

berth’s success, says LPC GM Infrastructure

and Property Mike Simmers.

”Many talented individuals and teams who

are experts in their field have come together

to play a hand in building the cruise berth.

To be standing on it today – on the home

stretch to completion – it’s a great feeling.”

The berth has been built to safely welcome

the full range of cruise vessels, including MS

Oasis of the Seas, which carries over 5,000

passengers and 2,000 staff.

Our four new state-of-the-art

reefer towers are complete

freight market.

infrastructure

Coal dust resource

consent renewal

LPC is a gateway for

exporting a certain type of

coal to the world called ‘coking

coal’, used as a raw mineral

ingredient in steel production.

In order to be allowed to store and handle

coal for export, LPC requires a consent for

coal dust. With our previous consent due to

expire in 2022, a new consent application is

now being prepared.

Phil de Joux, LPC GM Engagement and

Sustainability, says that while the Resource

Management Act has resulted in stricter

national standards for air quality, LPC is well

positioned to meet them.

“We use a range of controls to minimise coal

dust. For example, on hot, windy days we spray

water on the coal yard to dampen the dust down

– carefully treating all water that comes off site.”

“We will also be installing three additional

dust monitoring stations in Lyttelton to confirm

that coal dust is not causing annoyance or

health effects to the community”, says Phil.

“These stations contain highly sensitive

equipment that continually assess the levels of

very fine particles in the air and allow analysis

of the dust sources in the laboratory, so that we

can quickly address any issues that might occur.”

As part of the consent process LPC will be

undertaking a range of assessments and

investigations regarding coal dust. These

include looking into effects on ecology,

recreation and mahinga kai values, as well as

general nuisance and human health effects.

A 2019 analysis by Source Testing NZ showed

that even on-site in the coal yard, the level of

coal dust exposure was unlikely to result in

adverse health effects for the average worker.

With the new consent application due

mid-2021, LPC is consulting with members of

the public to inform the application. Nearby

residents have been advised and community

drop-in sessions will be held so that everyone’s

questions and concerns can be heard.

For enquiries or to register for

regular information updates on

this process, please contact

lpccommunications@lpc.co.nz

or call 03 328 8198

Quick facts:

Approximately 95%

of the coal stored at LPC

is coking coal

Without coking coal,

there would be no steel

and none of today’s

buildings, cars, fridges,

bicycles, surgical equipment,

pots or pans

Coking coal is one of the

three main ingredients

used to make steel

(the other two are iron ore

and limestone)

New Zealand coking coal

is considered some of the

best in the world due to its

high carbon content

Our reefer towers

fully lit at night.

This year, LPC facilitated the export of 31,447

20-foot reefer containers filled with premium

New Zealand products destined for the global

market.

We also imported 11,566 reefers containing

bananas, frozen dairy projects and other

chilled goods enjoyed by South Islanders

every day.

Each tower is 60 metres long and stands

10 metres high and includes the world’s

most advanced reefer monitoring system,

providing real-time data on temperature and

energy consumption.

LPC GM Container Operations Simon

Munt says health and safety benefits are

another substantial benefit gained by

the towers.

“The towers introduce hard engineered

separation between our Reefer Care Team

and the straddles operating in the Container

Terminal. The towers also highlight the

Port’s commitment to supporting hundreds

of New Zealand businesses to take their

goods to the world.”

LPC Mechanics

Brad McDade and

James Okane, who

assisted in the

installation of the

alarms.

White noise

alarms to

reduce Port

noise.

If you have noticed that the

Port is a bit quieter than

normal, it is thanks to the

new broadband alarms that

have been installed on our

straddles and other heavy

machinery.

In total, 30 straddles have been converted to

the new alarms, with the aim to have these

alarms in place on all Port and contractor

machinery operating at the Port in the

future.

An initiative driven by the Environmental

team, these alarms replace the tonal alarms

and help us reduce the overall port noise.

LPC Environmental Advisor Dr Crystal

Lenky says new technology and products

mean that we can meet occupational health

and safety requirements while also reducing

noise off site.

The broadband alarms work by producing

white noise across several frequencies, and

while they are as loud as the previous tonal

alarms, they are not as obvious at a distance,

causing less disturbance in the community.

“The tonal alarms were audible at

a considerable distance from the Port

because the tone stands out above the local

background noise – the new broadband

alarms lack those distinctive characteristics,”

says Crystal.

Safety is a priority here at the Port, and

it was essential that the new alarms were

able to alert staff on the ground to moving

machinery around them.

A 3-month trial was completed to

understand any potential risks from the

new alarms, but our team agreed that

the broadband alarms provided a great

awareness to the straddles around them.

05 OUR PEOPLE

From whānau

to kaupapa

Incorporating Māori culture

is becoming an integral

part of how we do things at

LPC, and Te Wiki o te Reo

Māori provided the perfect

opportunity to get our team

started on this journey.

Charting the course is Tahu Stirling (Kai

Tahu, Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Ngāti Whātua,

Ngāti Porou), our newly appointed Māori

Development Advisor who is focusing on

upskilling the company in tikanga Māori,

strengthening partnerships with mana

whenua and developing cultural resources

for staff.

He’s developed a waiata and a haka to

build a unique LPC company culture.

A waiata group now meets every Wednesday

with a core group of staff keen to give te reo a

go or reconnect with their own culture.

The group performed our waiata Kotahi

Te Ra in front of staff as a part of the Māori

Language Moment – an initiative by the Māori

Language Commission to have 1 million people

speaking te reo at midday on 14 September.

Events like this demonstrate how Māori

culture can be used to unify staff and

celebrate our values and our team.

“I think that cultural training gives the staff

here another feather in their cap. I feel lucky to

work with such a diverse group of people, and

I think that, when you learn about another

culture, it’s also about discovering oneself and

the intrinsic principles in your own culture

that show how we are not so different after all.

This is a diverse place, and the culture is the

glue that holds it together,” says Tahu.

During the week, we also ran competitions

to encourage staff to order coffee in te reo and

share their favourite te reo phrases to show how

te reo can be incorporated into everyday life.

While this was our first year participating

in Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, we look forward to

exploring more opportunities for staff to start

their own journey with te reo and tikanga.

“Success is something we’re

all part of together – LPC,

local trades and industry,

marine businesses, the

township and residents.”

From legacy to leadership

– our dry dock

Henry Bastion and Lito

Abarratigue are the energetic

pair in charge of running the

LPC dry dock, a key piece of

Port infrastructure with 137

years behind it and a bright

future ahead.

Dry Dock Master Henry, who came on board

earlier this year, is hugely passionate about

this economic engine that has been humming

away for generations.

“On any given day, we can have up to 300

staff and contractors working here. Not only

do we make a significant contribution to

LPC’s bottom line, we also support a much

larger network of industries from

local engineering firms to businesses in

the township.”

Opened in 1883, the Lyttelton dry dock is

one of just a few Category 1 heritage sites in

the South Island. Now one of just two dry

docks in the country, it continues to serve

a vast customer base, from fishing boats to

research vessels, dredges to superyachts.

Henry recognises the dock’s rich history but

also champions its future development. He

has spearheaded a number of improvements

encompassing operations to infrastructure.

Plans in the works include improved edge

protection and a new amenities block for crew.

“Keeping customers happy and the dock

full of ships is essential to our continued

success. That’s what I’m here to achieve.

I’m also cognisant of managing our

environmental impacts. I believe it’s important

to be upfront about our effects so we can

address them head on.”

Henry is supported by Dry Dock Operator

Lito. Originally from the Philippines, Lito

found his way to the dry dock after starting

at LPC as a carpenter.

“I love working in a port environment.

There’s lots of variety and plenty of good

people around. I like a challenge, and there

are always opportunities to learn here.”

Together, Henry and Lito are excited about

LPC’s future and the role of the dry dock

within that picture.

“Success is something we’re all part of

together – LPC, local trades and industry,

marine businesses, the township and

residents. The dry dock has been doing an

outstanding job for 140-odd years. We want to

honour that legacy and do everything we can

to give it an even stronger future.”

Foodstuffs South

Island employees

at their Hornby

Distribution Centre.

From Lyttelton Port to

your supermarket shelf

Each year, LPC supports

Foodstuffs South Island

to import thousands

of containers, stocking

supermarket shelves to feed

the South Island.

Foodstuffs South Island is 100% locally

owned and operated. Boasting an impressive

226 retail stores, its presence plays a

significant part in the South Island grocery

market.

There are seven banners operating under

Foodstuffs South Island: Pak’nSave, New

World, Four Square, Raeward Fresh, On the

Spot, Henry’s Beer Wine and Spirits, and

Trents Wholesale.

With a strong focus on providing healthy

and affordable food, Foodstuffs South Island

sources products from local and global

suppliers from Asia, Europe, America, Africa

and Australia.

By partnering with LPC, a substantial

number of items stocked at your local

supermarkets such as flour, coffee, ice-cream

and seafood first enter Christchurch and

New Zealand through Lyttelton Port.

After containers are processed at LPC,

they are sent to Foodstuffs South Island’s

distribution centre in Hornby, Christchurch.

Over 1,000 employees operate the two

facilities seven days a week to help deliver

products to supermarkets. Boosting the

local economy, enhancing infrastructure and

sustainability in supply chains are all important

objectives for Foodstuffs South Island.

Foodstuffs South Island Supply Chain

Development Manager Kris Lancaster

says centralised distribution is key to their

business.

“Keeping the infrastructure logistically

centralised not only reduces lead times and

fuel consumption but provides secure jobs to

local communities.”

During the COVID-19 health crisis, the

relationship between LPC and Foodstuffs South

Island has become increasingly important.

Ensuring the supply chain model is

strong and sound is pivotal to ensuring

South Islanders receive essential products,

especially during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.

“A spike in demand on supermarkets meant

we were under pressure to keep shelves

stocked. There was a rush from consumers to

purchase toilet paper, baby products, cleaning

products and baking products,” says Kris.

Foodstuffs South Island is continuing to

focus on providing goods to South Islanders

through Lyttelton Port.

Fishing

for the

future

LPC is proud to be the home

port for Okains Bay Seafood,

a company with a rich history

and focus firmly on the future

of sustainable fishing.

Okains Bay Longline Fishing was founded

by Greg Summerton, with a vision to

maximise Māori fishery assets through intergenerational

and sustainable growth.

Throughout his 35 years’ experience

operating as a deep-sea captain, Greg has

developed a deep knowledge and appreciation

for the cultural, commercial, environmental

and social imperatives of the New Zealand

seafood industry.

Greg’s whakapapa traces back to

Rākaihautū, Waitaha and Ngāti Māmoe tribes.

His Ngāi Tahu connection is also one of great

importance to him and his whānau and is

evident in the longlining techniques employed

by Greg and his team to this day.

The company’s longline vessel Kawatea is a

38-metre bottom longline fishing vessel, which

is home to a dedicated crew of 16 who spend

six weeks at sea during each trip out in the

Southern Ocean.

Kawatea and its crew can often be seen

loading and unloading in Lyttelton’s inner

harbour. There is always a hive of activity

when the vessel is in Port – seagulls circle, the

crew is focused and the result is high-quality

fish products destined for the global market.

“Fishing is hard work for all the staff

involved. The team is a family who are

looked after well and are provided with

comprehensive risk training, support and

advice to keep them safe at sea and on shore,”

says Greg.

Sustainability is also at the heart of how

Okains Bay Longline Fishing operates.

“Kawatea is fuelled by a clean renewable

biodiesel blend that has lower exhaust

emissions and breaks down in water,”

says Greg.

“In the same way that New Zealanders

are excellent producers of milk products,

Italians and the land in Italy are naturally

the best producers of pastas, sauces, deli

meats and cheeses. We wanted to bring

their incredible food here for South

Islanders to enjoy.”

Mediterranean

Food Co. owner

Andrew Brady

at his Riverside

Market store

From Italy to Ōtautahi

Since 2001, Mediterranean

Food Co. has been importing

delicacies from across the

globe through Lyttelton Port,

fuelling New Zealanders’

appetite for authentic Italian

food and wine.

With the establishment of the city centre’s

Riverside Market last year, Mediterranean

Food Co. has expanded its specialty store

and café on Tuam Street with a successful

‘satellite store’ in the heart of Christchurch.

An accountant by trade, the company’s

owner Andrew Brady purchased the business

four years ago, swapping number crunching

for sourcing the highest quality and affordable

delicacies for his stores.

“Food is such a big part of the Italian culture

– for generations, they have been making

sauces, olive oils, pasta, salami, cheese and wine.

“In the same way that New Zealanders are

excellent producers of milk products, Italians

and the land in Italy are naturally the best

producers of pastas, sauces, deli meats and

cheeses. We wanted to bring their incredible

food here for South Islanders to enjoy.”

Each year, Mediterranean Food Co. imports

around 16 containers and chilled containers

filled to the brim with beautiful products from

southern Italy, Spain and France.

“From the moment we place our order with

Italian suppliers to when our containers arrive

in Lyttelton, it takes about six weeks.

“When the containers arrive, we sometimes

forget what we’ve ordered – then suddenly the

store is filled with European products for our

customers to enjoy.”

When thinking about the company’s carbon

footprint, Andrew says they work hard to

ensure each container destined for Lyttelton

Port is economically packed, so a lot of time

and effort goes into the ordering process.

Andrew and his team have formed

solid relationships with local growers and

manufacturers in Italy and have continued

to support their businesses through the

COVID-19 outbreak.

“For many of our suppliers, we are a

significant customer, so we’ve been conscious

to continue purchasing their goods this year.”

With a thriving online store and customer

base who love their products, it seems

Mediterranean Food Co. has got the recipe

right for success in the central city.

Port Saddle:

Local tamariki, companies

and communities have all

contributed to the 1,885 trees

planted over the last three

years as part of the Port

Saddle Restoration Project.

In 2017, LPC partnered with the Banks

Peninsula Conservation Trust and set out to

restore the 17 hectares of LPC land through

removing weeds and pests and planting

native trees that will ultimately create a

native habitat for lots of important species.

The trees that are planted all start out

as locally collected seeds, which are mostly

grown by the Department of Conservation at

the Motukarara Conservation Nursery.

LPC Head of Environment and

Sustainability Kim Kelleher says eco-sourcing

is an important tool in restoration projects.

“By using seeds from trees that already

grow in the area, there is a greater chance for

survival, because we already know the tree

will thrive in the local conditions.”

The 20 species that have been planted

include tōtara, kōwhai, tī kōuka (cabbage

tree) and mātai, creating habitat for species

of native birds, lizards and bugs.

This project would not be possible to

complete alone, and over that time, we have

had multiple organisations, schools and

companies such as Christchurch Airport, as

well as countless community volunteers all

get their hands dirty to help create an area to

be enjoyed now and by future generations.

An important part of this project has been

education, and we work with EnviroSchools

to hold school planting days, encouraging

children to learn more about the environment

in this unique outdoor classroom!

“Many of these children come up here with

their families on the weekend, so providing

them with a hands-on learning experience

to connect with their own environment

is great,” says EnviroSchools Canterbury

Facilitator Toni Watts.

Environmental Advisor

Dr Crystal Lenky with two

nesting boxes.

LPC is excited to welcome four

new electric vehicles to our

fleet as a part of the transition

to a reduction in carbon

emissions.

Head of Sustainability

and Environment Kim

Kelleher with one of the

new Nissan Leafs.

This project was championed by our

Sustainability Team who, with the help of the

Procurement Team, were able to purchase

three Nissan Leafs and a Nissan eNV200 van.

The Leafs will be used by staff travelling

around Christchurch to visit clients or our

CityDepot and MidlandPort sites, and the

eNV200 will replace the security van, which is

an important part of keeping the Port safe and

secure.

These new vehicles are part of LPC’s wider

Sustainability Strategy, working towards being

net-zero carbon by 2050.

This is only the first step, with plans for

charging stations to be installed around LPC

and a plan to transition our entire light fleet to

electric.

“We know we have a larger challenge with

equipment like straddles, but it’s great to start

the process – electric vehicles are an easy

win,” says LPC Head of Sustainability and

Environment Kim Kelleher.

It’s penguin nesting season,

and LPC is helping our

flippered friends by installing

11 penguin nesting boxes on

Port land.

White-flippered penguins/kororā are only

found in the Canterbury region and breed in

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour, which not

only makes this area unique but essential to

their protection.

Environmental Advisor Dr Crystal Lenky

says installing penguin nesting boxes is

important in establishing safe nesting areas for

the penguins.

“In some areas where penguins nest in

the seawalls, such as Naval Point, they are

vulnerable to predators like dogs, so we hope

that by providing nest boxes and fencing off

areas, we can encourage more penguins to nest

on Port land.”

This project saw LPC partner with

Fulton Hogan, who built, decorated and

donated eight boxes and also enlisted the help

of Best Start Primary School in Burnside to

decorate some of them.

“White-flippered penguins are so special

to this area, so it’s great to see the community

getting involved and helping out,” says

Crystal.

Crystal was also conscious about

the boxes being sustainable, so left-over

materials and scraps from the Port were used

to construct them.

These 11 boxes are a great way to support

white-flippered penguins, and if successful, this

will be just the start of more boxes installed

around Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour.

Together Apart

Lyttelton

Together Apart Lyttelton is an

art gallery installation at Te

Ana Marina featuring photos

of Lyttelton residents during

the Alert Level 4 lockdown

taken by local photographer

Justyn Denney-Boarston.

The project came about when the

announcement was made that the country

was going into lockdown in March.

Justyn knew that this time would bring

a great level of uncertainty and unease for

everyone and chose to capture this.

The project started out small, just with

friends being photographed, but grew to

involve strangers, with Justyn out daily to

capture people through their windows.

With funding from Creative New Zealand,

Justyn was able to turn this project into an

exhibition, choosing Te Ana Marina as a great

location for the public to enjoy the pictures

and reminisce about their own lockdown

experiences.

“During the period of lockdown, the

Lyttelton community came to use the Marina

space as a location of respite. It was where

we picnicked, let small ones ride scooters

in safety and hoped for a glimpse of our

neighbours from afar. It is in this spirit that

I would open this exhibition,” says Justyn.

The exhibition launched on Saturday 26

September, with music, entertainment and

food to support the unveiling of the photos

and celebrate the strength of the Lyttelton

community.

The pictures will be on display for a

month, so make sure you head down to the

waterfront at Te Ana Marina to view the

exhibition if you haven’t already.
