Time to party for rest home residents<br />

Richard and Beverley Kane were among the Edith Cavell Lifecare and Village residents who celebrated<br />

Christmas together with their families on last week. The event was made extra special by a visit<br />

from 38 Sumner School pupils who sang Christmas carols and handed out hand-made cards to the<br />

residents who gave them ice cream. Said manager Scott Wallace: “I had a giggle to myself when I<br />

overheard one of the children comment to another: ‘See, I told you they’d give us something’.”<br />

New<br />

route for<br />

cycleway<br />

to protect<br />

estuary<br />

edge<br />

A CYCLE connection between<br />

Linwood Ave and the Ferrymead<br />

Bridge will follow a new route.<br />

The city council’s urban<br />

development and transport<br />

committee has decided to alter<br />

the route of the Rapanui – Shag<br />

Rock Cycleway has been made to<br />

minimise the environmental<br />

impacts<br />

of the cycleway on<br />

the estuary edge.<br />

The cycleway<br />

will now<br />

travel through<br />

Charlesworth Reserve<br />

rather than<br />

going around the<br />

Mike<br />

Davidson<br />

estuary on Humphreys Drive.<br />

The existing cycle lanes on<br />

Humphreys Drive will also be improved<br />

to provide an alternative<br />

route for people who want to cycle<br />

along the road.<br />

Said committee chairman<br />

Mike Davidson.“With the final<br />

stage of the Rapanui – Shag Rock<br />

Cycleway and the last stage of the<br />

Christchurch Coastal Pathway<br />

getting under way next year we<br />

will soon have a cycle path all the<br />

way from the central city to<br />

Sumner. • Turn to page 3<br />

Christmas and Happy New Year!<br />

Akaroa’s cumulative rainfall<br />

this year is the lowest it has<br />

pressure on the town’s water<br />

supply which it shares with<br />

Rapanui – Shag Rock Cycleway<br />

will get under way early next<br />

year, starting along Humphreys<br />

Work on this section involves<br />

planting 3000 new plants that<br />

will help with the health of the<br />

Linwood Canal and support the<br />

local inanga species.<br />

Construction of the section<br />

of the cycleway through<br />

in the middle of next year. The<br />

cycleway will follow an existing<br />

path through the reserve, which<br />

will be widened to 3m and<br />

asphalted.<br />

The cycleway will then connect<br />

back onto Humphreys<br />

Jasper the ‘purr-fect’ burglar at it again<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

PILES OF socks, underwear,<br />

leggings, and even a bikini have<br />

been mysteriously going missing<br />

in Sumner.<br />

But one resident has identified<br />

the thief – her cat. Mette<br />

Kristiansen says her one-andhalf-year-old<br />

cat, Jasper, has<br />

again been caught red-pawed<br />

with ill-gotten gains clutched in<br />

his claws.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News reported<br />

on Jasper’s antics last Christmas<br />

but they have now become so<br />

bad Kristiansen has been busy<br />

dropping off flyers to warn her<br />

neighbours within a two-block<br />

radius about him.<br />

“We got him when he was a<br />

kitten and started doing this<br />

burglarising about Christmas last<br />

year,” she said.<br />

Jasper’s main target seems to<br />

be socks, but he had also claimed<br />

gardening and working gloves,<br />

leggings and shoes.<br />

One neighbour reported him<br />

stealing a bikini.<br />

“I have heard that he definitely<br />

does get into people’s homes. He<br />

walks down their hallway and<br />

into their bedrooms. I’ve heard<br />

tales of him going upstairs . . .<br />

even houses with dogs. He makes<br />

friends with the dogs.”<br />

Kristiansen said Jasper seemed<br />

to be “an incredibly intelligent<br />

cat.”<br />

CAUGHT: Mette Kristiansen and Harriet Kristiansen-Benge,<br />

stolen from around Sumner. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

“One day I was in my bedroom<br />

and I think he was wanting attention<br />

– he jumped up on my<br />

duchess where my drawer was<br />

open a fraction. He put his paw<br />

down, got one little claw out,<br />

picked up one of my socks and<br />

flung it on the floor. He then did<br />

it again.”<br />

Each day Jasper could steal up<br />

to five items.<br />

“He comes through our cat flap<br />

and just drops them in the hallway<br />

after his rampages around<br />

the neighbourhood overnight.<br />

Sometimes he gets a bit lazy and<br />

drops them around the garden.”<br />

Each day she puts two large<br />

bins out by her front door filled<br />

with stolen items so her neighbours<br />

could collect anything<br />

stolen.<br />

In spite of being a “wee bit<br />

worried” about the reaction from<br />

SPOTTED: Jasper has been stealing items, including this<br />

pair of shoes and gardening gloves.<br />

neighbours, Kristiansen<br />

said most people “love the<br />

story and find it extremely<br />

entertaining.”<br />

“I don’t think a lot of people<br />

realise they are missing items<br />

. . . that’s why I’m finding it really<br />

hard to return things to people,”<br />

she said.<br />

A Facebook page has also been<br />

set up. Neighbour Brooke Carroll<br />

and her three children – aged<br />

seven, five, and two – were just<br />

some of Jasper’s victims.<br />

“He will steal socks . . . he steals<br />

lots from the clothesline, he’s<br />

stolen upwards of 50 socks.”<br />

The morning after Halloween,<br />

they saw a bikini Jasper had<br />

stolen hanging on the front fence.<br />

“The kids think it is hilarious<br />

. . . they can’t find their rugby<br />

socks so we go and look in the<br />

Jasper bin.”<br />

Wheelchair prank for record-breaking runner<br />

HUMOUR: A wheelchair was on hand for distance runner<br />

Judy Brock – thanks to her brother Darryl – when she<br />

returned from her 100th marathon.<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

JUDY BROCK had a wheelchair<br />

waiting for her on the tarmac<br />

when her flight landed at<br />

Christchurch Airport.<br />

And although the gesture was<br />

tongue in cheek by her brother<br />

Darryl, the record-setting marathon<br />

runner already had talks<br />

with a surgeon booked.<br />

The 56-year-old from Mt<br />

Pleasant completed her 100th<br />

marathon – the Wanganui 3<br />

Bridges – last Saturday to be<br />

the quickest member of the 100<br />

Marathon Club New Zealand to<br />

reach the milestone.<br />

It is all but certain to be her last<br />

marathon, as a damaged left hip<br />

needs attention, or at least rest.<br />

She was due to have a chat with<br />

a surgeon this week to discuss an<br />

action plan.<br />

“I’ll ask him about doing<br />

half-marathons. I may be able to<br />

become a five or a 10k specialist,”<br />

she said.<br />

Brock clocked 6hr 3min<br />

27.82sec to be the 56th of 69 confirmed<br />

finishers in Wanganui,<br />

though the time and placing was<br />

the least of her concerns.<br />

Crossing the line was paramount,<br />

so she could eclipse regular<br />

running mate Norman Chan,<br />

who took six years, five months<br />

and eight days to bring up three<br />

figures.<br />

Brock ran her first marathon<br />

in November, 2014 – in New<br />

York – so she set the new mark<br />

comfortably, in spite of limping<br />

from the 30km mark.<br />

“It was neat because my mum<br />

(Lorraine) and my husband (Stu)<br />

came up. They held the pink<br />

ribbon at the end for me to go<br />

through,” she said.<br />

“When I got on the plane from<br />

Palmy North they made the<br />

announcement, then when I got<br />

MAMMOTH<br />

EFFORT: Mt<br />

Pleasant’s<br />

Judy Brock<br />

was booked<br />

to see a<br />

surgeon now<br />

that she has<br />

completed<br />

her final<br />

marathon.<br />

off the plane my brother, who<br />

works for Air New Zealand, he<br />

was at the bottom of the ladder<br />

with a bunch of flowers and a<br />

wheelchair as a joke.”<br />

Brock, who plans to take up<br />

lawn bowls in the New Year, had<br />

planned to post the ton in New<br />

York, but was rapt to hit the line<br />

closer to home.<br />

“It was wonderful. I got to<br />

share it with lots of neat people.<br />

It was a great end to the journey.”<br />

Event raises $8000<br />

in spite of cancellation<br />

A WOMEN’S club has<br />

raised more than $8000<br />

towards crucial research<br />

for children with bowel<br />

disease, in spite of the<br />

cancellation of their major<br />

fundraising event.<br />

The Inner Wheel Club<br />

of Riccarton was meant to<br />

host a charitable fashion<br />

parade this year, but it<br />

was cancelled twice due to<br />

Covid-19 public gathering<br />

restrictions.<br />

But they were still able<br />

to present $8300 to Cure<br />

Kids as the majority of<br />

ticket holders still decided<br />

to donate the price of their<br />

ticket anyway.<br />

Cure Kids, best known<br />

for Red Nose Day, is the<br />

country’s largest funder of<br />

child health research.<br />

The proceeds will enable<br />

the charity to take on an<br />

intern over the summer,<br />

who will be researching<br />

the safety, feasibility<br />

and satisfaction of longdistance<br />

out-patient<br />

consultations for children<br />

with inflammatory bowel<br />

disease.<br />

“We heard a mother<br />

say how not a day goes by<br />

Ferrymead<br />

when she doesn’t wish for<br />

a cure for gastrointestinal<br />

failure. That rang a bell<br />

with us all,” said Bobbity<br />

Murfitt, of the Inner<br />

Wheel Club.<br />

“So the idea of hosting<br />

a fashion showcase was<br />

born. We wanted to give<br />

love, time and fundraising<br />

to the amazing hands-on<br />

work and research of Cure<br />

Kids.”<br />

The Riccarton club is<br />

part of Inner Wheel – an<br />

international Womens’<br />

Service Club, who aim<br />

to foster true friendship,<br />

service to others, and the<br />

promotion of international<br />

understanding.<br />

The Last Truehart<br />

by Darry Fraser<br />

1898, Geelong, Victoria. Stella Truehart is all alone in the<br />

world. Her good-for-nothing husband has died violently at<br />

the hands of an unknown assailant. Her mother is dead,<br />

her father deserted them before she was born, and now her<br />

kindly Truehart grandparents are also in their graves.<br />

Private detective Bendigo Barrett has been tasked with finding<br />

Stella. He believes his client’s intentions are good, but it is evident<br />

that someone with darker motives is also seeking her. For her own<br />

part Stella is fiercely independent, but as danger mounts she agrees to<br />

work with Bendigo and before long they travel together to Sydney to meet<br />

his mysterious client where they discover more questions than answers.<br />

What role do a stolen precious jewel and a long-ago US Civil War ship<br />

play in Stella’s story? Will sudden bloodshed prevent the resolution of the<br />

mystery and stand in the way of her feelings for Bendigo? It is time, at last,<br />

for the truth to be revealed...<br />

People of Abandoned Character<br />

by Clare Whitfield<br />

What would you do if you thought your husband was Jack the Ripper? A<br />

dark historical crime novel.<br />

He is my husband. To honour and obey. Until murder do us part. London,<br />

1888: Susannah rushes into marriage to a young and wealthy surgeon.<br />

After a passionate honeymoon, she returns home with her new husband<br />

wrapped around her little finger. But then everything changes. His<br />

behaviour becomes increasingly volatile and violent. He stays out all<br />

night, returning home bloodied and full of secrets. Lonely and frustrated,<br />

Susannah starts following the gruesome reports of a spate of murders in<br />

Whitechapel. But as the killings continue, her mind takes her down the<br />

darkest path imaginable.<br />

Every time her husband stays out late, another victim is found dead. Is it<br />

coincidence? Or is he the man they call Jack the Ripper?<br />

The showcase was meant<br />

to feature “models” sporting<br />

the latest fashion for<br />

both men and women<br />

from Maxwell Fashion,<br />

based in Halswell.<br />

Originally, it was to be<br />

held in April at Riccarton<br />

Park but was rescheduled<br />

to August 12 following the<br />

Covid-19 level 4 lockdown.<br />

“But on the evening of<br />

August 11, the Covid-19<br />

level went up and<br />

functions were reduced<br />

to very small numbers.<br />

We were devastated,” said<br />

Murfitt.<br />

ACHIEVEMENT: City councillor Sara Templeton unveils the new<br />

sign, which tells the story of how the Lyttelton Rail Tunnel was built.<br />

Sign tracks history of rail tunnel<br />

A NEW information board<br />

telling the story of the Lyttelton<br />

Rail Tunnel – the oldest in New<br />

Zealand – has been put up on<br />

Station Rd in Heathcote Valley.<br />

The information board has<br />

been developed by Engineering<br />

New Zealand’s Canterbury<br />

Heritage Chapter to publicly<br />

honour the achievement of<br />

the engineers who oversaw the<br />

tunnel’s construction.<br />

The tunnel, which opened<br />

on <strong>December</strong> 9, 1867, was New<br />

Zealand’s first rail tunnel – and<br />

for many years it was also the<br />

longest. It was also the first<br />

tunnel in the world to be driven<br />

through the side of an extinct<br />

volcano.<br />

It cost £195,000 to build.<br />

“What the engineers achieved<br />

with limited resources is quite<br />

staggering,” said Ian Bywater,<br />

Engineering New Zealand<br />

Canterbury Heritage Chapter<br />

secretary.<br />

“They were so bold and<br />

resourceful to drill a tunnel<br />

through volcanic rock to create a<br />

direct link between the port and<br />

Christchurch at a time<br />

when there was only a<br />

fledging railway system in New<br />

Zealand.’’<br />

City councillor Sara<br />

Templeton, who officially<br />

unveiled the information board,<br />

is pleased the pioneering feat<br />

of engineering is being publicly<br />

acknowledged.<br />

“A plaque has been put at the<br />

portal of the railway tunnel to<br />

acknowledge the engineering<br />

work that went into constructing<br />

the tunnel.<br />

“For safety reasons there is<br />

no public access to the portal so<br />

I am pleased that Engineering<br />

New Zealand have found<br />

another way to draw people’s<br />

attention to the nationally<br />

significant history of the tunnel,”<br />

she said.<br />

The idea of building a rail<br />

tunnel between the port of<br />

Lyttelton and Christchurch was<br />

first raised in the early 1850s<br />

but it was initially dismissed as<br />

unnecessary extravagance.<br />

However, as exports of wool<br />

continued to grow, the need<br />

for a direct connection to the<br />

port increased and, in 1858, the<br />

SUCCESS: The tunnel was opened on <strong>December</strong> 9, 1867.<br />

Canterbury Provincial Council<br />

decided to proceed with the<br />

ambitious project.<br />

Work on the rail tunnel<br />

began in 1860, but the English<br />

contractors hired to build the<br />

tunnel gave up when they struck<br />

extremely hard rock.<br />

Canterbury provincial<br />

engineer Edward Dobson took<br />

over responsibility for the<br />

project and a new Australian<br />

contractor, Holmes & Co, was<br />

found, allowing work on the<br />

tunnel to restart in July 1861.<br />

Constructing the tunnel wasn’t<br />

easy – there was more hard rock<br />

than expected and ways had to<br />

be found to ventilate and drain<br />

the tunnel.<br />

However, Dobson’s<br />

engineering skills were proven<br />

when the two lines of the tunnel<br />

– one coming from Lyttelton and<br />

the other from Heathcote – met<br />

as planned on May 24, 1867,<br />

when an iron rod was passed<br />

between the break through.<br />

Within five days it was possible<br />

for men to walk from one end of<br />

the tunnel to the other.<br />

Two workers were killed<br />

during construction of the<br />

2.4km tunnel when explosives<br />

were not handled carefully<br />

enough.<br />

The city council helped<br />

cover the cost of the information<br />

board, while Engineering<br />

New Zealand and Heritage<br />

New Zealand also contributed<br />

funds.<br />

THE ELECTION of Green<br />

MP Chlöe Swarbrick raised<br />

questions about who was<br />

the youngest member of<br />

Parliament.<br />

Swarbrick, at 23-years-old,<br />

was the seventh youngest MP<br />

when she entered Parliament<br />

in 2017. But the youngest MP<br />

had close connections with<br />

our own estuary.<br />

James Frederick Stuart-<br />

Wortley was just 20-years-old<br />

when elected to represent the<br />

Christchurch Country seat<br />

in New Zealand’s first Parliament<br />

in 1853.<br />

Stuart-Wortley was the third<br />

son of the Lord Wharncliffe<br />

II. He arrived in Christchurch<br />

aged 18-years-old and managed<br />

a block of land which<br />

now encompasses the Charlesworth<br />

Wetland Reserve.<br />

The land was owned by<br />

his father; Wharncliffe never<br />

came to New Zealand but<br />

James Frederick Stuart-<br />

Wortley – New Zealand’s<br />

youngest ever MP. ​<br />

vested his son with power of<br />

attorney.<br />

Charlesworth Wetland<br />

Reserve is now a significant<br />

wildlife refuge where more<br />

than 130,000 native trees and<br />

shrubs have been planted so as<br />

to restore the former pasture<br />

land to its original wetland<br />

character.<br />

Stuart-Wortley came on<br />

the Charlotte-Jane and The<br />

Cyclopedia of New Zealand<br />

describes him as “a man of<br />

means, and an accomplished<br />

gentleman.”<br />

His electorate included<br />

much of rural Canterbury<br />

and Westland. He resigned<br />

in July 1855 and returned to<br />

England.<br />

Little more is known of him<br />

other than that he unsuccessfully<br />

stood for the House<br />

of Commons in the United<br />

Kingdom in 1865 as Conservative<br />

Party candidate for<br />

Sheffield.<br />

A keen group of volunteers<br />

tend the plants at Charlesworth<br />

Reserve; if you want to<br />

help you are very welcome to<br />

join the group on Sundays at<br />

3pm at the Charlesworth St<br />

entrance to the reserve.

A taste for Beaujolais<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

I RECENTLY attended a tasting<br />

of French wines from a specialist<br />

French wine importer based in<br />

Auckland.<br />

We criss-crossed the country<br />

sampling a mix of wines from<br />

different regions and, while I<br />

was spoilt for choice, one of my<br />

favourites was from Beaujolais,<br />

made from the gamay grape.<br />

The Beaujolais region lies<br />

roughly 50km to the north of<br />

Lyon, the gastronomic capital<br />

of France, where its “bouchons”<br />

(the local term for bistro) are<br />

always well stocked with this<br />

very local wine. This wine style is<br />

often dubbed “vin de soif”, which<br />

roughly translates as unpretentious<br />

and measured by the joy<br />

and refreshment it offers.<br />

This might give the impression<br />

that these wines are simple, but<br />

that is far from the case — some<br />

of the finer examples have great<br />

complexity and potential in the<br />

cellar. It is more a reflection of<br />

the crunchy juiciness and richness<br />

they offer and their capability<br />

to be enjoyed immediately<br />

upon release. Moreover, these<br />

remain relative bargains in the<br />

pantheon of French wines.<br />

This wine style did develop a<br />

dire reputation during the Beaujolais<br />

Nouveau craze where the<br />

race was on to taste the very first<br />

wines of the harvest. Held on<br />

the third Thursday of November<br />

it showcases wines made from<br />

grapes picked just a few weeks<br />

earlier.<br />

At one time a particular yeast<br />

strain was commonly used to<br />

ferment the wines, and this gave<br />

a distinctive banana-like ester to<br />

the finished wines.<br />

While that yeast strain is now<br />

a thing of the past, the Beaujolais<br />

Nouveau fest is undergoing a<br />

small resurgence.<br />

Domestically, we have a handful<br />

of wineries flying the flag<br />

for this grape variety, but with<br />

a scant 10ha planted these are<br />

never going to be that easy to<br />

find.<br />

Today’s tasting includes a wine<br />

from a young French producer<br />

I visited in 2017 along with two<br />

serious New Zealand examples.<br />

2018 Alexandre Burgaud<br />

Beaujolais lantignie<br />

Price: $29.99<br />

Rating: Excellent to outstanding<br />

Smoke, juicy berryfruit,<br />

spices, a hint of funk, fruit jube<br />

and licorice evolve with time.<br />

Fresh, vibrant and zesty, brimming<br />

with berryfruit and raspberry<br />

notes, tannins in support.<br />

This opens up nicely and is oh<br />

so drinkable already, with a long,<br />

long lip-smacking close with a<br />

tingly crunchiness that draws<br />

you back for further sips.<br />

Delicious.<br />

www.alexandreburgaud.fr<br />

2019 Easthope Stone<br />

Aged Hawke’s <strong>Bay</strong> gamay<br />

Price: $34.99 (cellar door)<br />

Rating: Excellent<br />

Brooding nose of bonfire<br />

smoke, brambles, earth and<br />

river stones.<br />

A powerful start, almost a<br />

bruiser as sweet fruit floods<br />

the palate with fruit jam notes<br />

backed by black tea and leaf.<br />

This softens, adding raspberry<br />

with aeration yet retaining the<br />

vivid, tangy berryfruit crunch<br />

of the variety. Fine tannins and<br />

acidity in support.<br />

Real interest here.<br />

www.easthope.co.nz<br />

2019 Rippon Central<br />

Otago gamay<br />

Price: $57<br />

Rating: Excellent<br />

Delightful fragrance, florality,<br />

violets, spices, mixed berries.<br />

Powerfully expressed palate<br />

starts in the red spectrum with<br />

summer berries and crunchy<br />

fruit jube, sherbet and smokers<br />

lolly nuances while drying tannins<br />

flex their muscle.<br />

Moves into a darker, cherry<br />

and raspberry spectrum as it<br />

fleshes out maintaining lovely<br />

purity and crunch.<br />

Delicious.<br />

Environmentally-friendly Forester<br />

A SOUTHERLY gale was<br />

buffeting the media evaluation<br />

car and the roads were drenched<br />

with rain, not ideal conditions to<br />

be out driving.<br />

However, I was relaxed because<br />

I was driving a Subaru Forester<br />

sport utility vehicle, its permanently<br />

engaged four-wheel-drive<br />

offering security through grip<br />

and composure. It wasn’t just any<br />

Forester either, it was a hybrid,<br />

one of two petrol/electric models<br />

that Subaru has introduced this<br />

year, the other being the XV.<br />

If you are thinking that being a<br />

hybrid jeopardises the concept of<br />

Forester (or XV) you had better<br />

think again, both hybrid variants<br />

are still capable cross-country<br />

vehicles when grip is low and slippery<br />

conditions demand surety.<br />

I’ve always liked the Forester,<br />

it’s a mid-size SUV that makes<br />

you feel part of the car, it always<br />

feels tightly connected to the<br />

road, and when conditions are<br />

bad you, as a driver, can relax<br />

knowing that the mechanicals are<br />

working for you.<br />

The Forester has always been<br />

based on the Impreza floorpan,<br />

so that gives you some indication<br />

of its size; it’s not big, but it does<br />

have all the SUV characteristics<br />

you want when buying into that<br />

part of the market.<br />

The hybrid system is fairly<br />

traditional, think Toyota Prius<br />

and the other hybrids from<br />

that stable, the Forester’s unit is<br />

similar in its function; it is a lot<br />

more than a mild system, it is<br />

fully developed and contributes<br />

markedly to economy and performance.<br />

Subaru rate the Forester hybrid<br />

with a 6.7l/100km combined<br />

cycle fuel usage rating. That compares<br />

to the Forester in standard<br />

form of 7.4l/100km which, over<br />

time, will represent financial<br />

savings.<br />

During my evaluation time,<br />

and considering conditions<br />

were at their worst, l recorded<br />

an 8l/100km average with a<br />

5l/100km instantaneous figure<br />

appearing on readouts when I<br />

was travelling at 100km/h, the<br />

engine firing at 2000rpm.<br />

Of course, as with all traditional<br />

hybrids the electric motor<br />

would want to work the entire<br />

time. It can’t realistically, so the<br />

engine cuts in to generate power<br />

to the batteries and provide drive<br />

through a continuously variable<br />

automatic transmission to each<br />

corner of the vehicle.<br />

All in all it’s a complicated system<br />

made simple through clever<br />

engineering practise. Drive is<br />

smooth and seamless through all<br />

of the processes, and unless you<br />

were told the Forester had hybrid<br />

technology I’d defy anyone really<br />

knowing, bar the comprehensive<br />

FUNCTIONAL: The hybrid Forester loses none of its<br />

practicality.<br />

SUBARU FORESTER HYBRID: Two models from $47,490.<br />

display graphics that inform the<br />

driver of what is happening mechanically<br />

and electronically.<br />

Providing drive in the first instance<br />

is a horizontally-opposed<br />

engine with twin-overhead<br />

camshafts on each bank. Subaru<br />

simply calls the engine a boxer<br />

type, or else as I grew up, that<br />

configuration was known as a<br />

flat-four made popular in those<br />

days by Jowett, Volkswagen and<br />

Porsche. Interestingly, the hybrid<br />

model has just 2-litre capacity, as<br />

opposed to a 2.5-litre unit in the<br />

petrol-only models.<br />

Subaru rates the boxer hybrid<br />

with 110kW and 196Nm.<br />

Of course, you get extra power<br />

through the electric system that<br />

adds a chunky 12.3kW and<br />

66Nm.<br />

Together the Forester hybrid<br />

feels sprightly, and without power<br />

loss through the transmission<br />

there is good acceleration and<br />

healthy overtaking power available<br />

at highway speed. The hybrid<br />

Forester can reach 100km/h from<br />

a standstill in 10sec and cut out<br />

a 120km/h from 80km/h time of<br />

5.8sec.<br />

These figures are adequate for<br />

the Forester’s role, and given<br />

that there isn’t huge weight in<br />

the lithium-ion battery pack the<br />

Forester still feels agile.<br />

Because the weight sits mostly<br />

low, especially up front where the<br />

boxer design sits low under the<br />

• Price – Subaru Forester<br />

Premium hybrid, $54,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4625mm; width, 1815mm;<br />

height, 1730mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1995cc, 123kW, 262Nm,<br />

continuously variable<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 10sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.7l/100km<br />

bonnet, there is little gravitational<br />

shift when corners are presented.<br />

Add in considerable feel from the<br />

225/55 x 18in Bridgestone Dueler<br />

rubber and you get an involving<br />

handling experience, and one<br />

which is dynamic and informative.<br />

I took the evaluation car on<br />

my normal high country route, it<br />

is quiet on the highway, and even<br />

though the roads were wet for<br />

most of the drive I felt comfortable<br />

with the feel from behind the<br />

wheel.<br />

Inside, the Forester hybrid gets<br />

all of the technical ingredients<br />

and features for comfort that<br />

has made the petrol-only model<br />

a big seller through the years.<br />

Safety also has a high presence,<br />

and the camera-based EyeSight<br />

driver-assist technology is also<br />

included, easily contributing to<br />

a five-star Australasian New Car<br />

Assessment Program rating.<br />

The Star Media accountant has<br />

long been a Forester user. Not so<br />

much in recent years when a replacement<br />

brand was chosen, but<br />

I would like to think that car will<br />

soon go up for sale. I’m trying to<br />

convince the keen skier that the<br />

Forester is still the car for him,<br />

and I’ve asked him the question,<br />

would the return in petrol savings<br />

over time justify the extra cost of<br />

the hybrid?<br />

Subaru list the petrol only<br />

Forester Premium at $49,990, the<br />

hybrid in that specification adds<br />

$5000, although if you don’t want<br />

all the bells and whistles a Sport<br />

model lists at just $47,490, and<br />

that would be the car for me.<br />

Also, the extra reward you get<br />

as a driver certainly justifies the<br />

extra cost, and for those who feel<br />

that hybrids are part of the ecofriendly<br />

solution going forward,<br />

choices such as those Subaru are<br />

offering can only be a step in the<br />

right direction.<br />

When the Forester and XV<br />

hybrids were launched, supply<br />

was a problem, and in some ways<br />

that’s a good thing – today’s new<br />

vehicle buyers are well aware of<br />

the benefits of hybrid technology.<br />

Both models are now steady<br />

on stream, and I guess Subaru<br />

is looking at further developing<br />

its hybrid system, watch for it<br />

in other models in the near<br />

future.

Lyttelton Port Company Community Newsletter<br />

eview into workplace<br />

ulture released<br />

LPC has released an<br />

independent review into<br />

workplace culture, which has<br />

clearly laid out the need for<br />

cultural change at the Port.<br />

The independent review into workplace culture<br />

was commissioned by our Chief Executive<br />

Officer Roger Gray in May <strong>2020</strong> with the support<br />

of the LPC Board and led by Maria Dew QC.<br />

The review terms of reference covered<br />

allegations relating to bullying, racial and<br />

sexual discrimination, harassment and unfair<br />

selection of family members for roles.<br />

The review covered the 3-year period from<br />

2017 to <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

“The findings of the review are sobering.<br />

Maria has done an excellent job holding a<br />

mirror up to our organisation, and this is a<br />

strong starting point for us to all work together<br />

to continue to change LPC,” says Roger.<br />

LPC will accept and implement all the<br />

review’s 32 recommendations, which include<br />

five focus areas.<br />

Recommendations include specialist training<br />

for all LPC staff on appropriate workplace<br />

conduct, improving diversity and inclusion in<br />

the LPC workforce, improving accountability<br />

for poor staff conduct and reducing the ‘them<br />

and us’ barriers that exist between teams.<br />

“This report gives us clear direction<br />

for change. Our business is full of good<br />

people doing a hard job to support our local<br />

community and economy.<br />

We need to focus on making sure they’re<br />

okay and that this is a place they feel<br />

respected and valued,” says Roger.<br />

LPC Board Chair Margaret Devlin says the<br />

Board fully supports the implementation of<br />

the review’s findings.<br />

“This report is the next step in the process<br />

of change and transformation that the Board<br />

began at LPC nearly 2 years ago.<br />

We strongly support the findings of the<br />

independent review and will be working hard<br />

to ensure that all of the recommendations are<br />

addressed,” says Margaret.<br />

“The changes required at Lyttelton Port<br />

Company are significant. As a Board, we are<br />

committed to ensuring our people have the<br />

specialists and additional resources required<br />

to implement these changes.”<br />

The independent review was given full<br />

access to engage with staff and contractors<br />

and access to policies, procedures and relevant<br />

data.<br />

LPC’s four main workforce unions – the<br />

Rail and Maritime Union of New Zealand,<br />

Maritime Union of New Zealand, New Zealand<br />

Merchant Service Guild and Amalgamated<br />

Workers Union New Zealand – were all fully<br />

engaged in the process of the review.<br />

“I’d like to thank all of the nearly 100 current<br />

and former staff who came forward to speak<br />

to the review and help build a new culture at<br />

LPC,” says Roger.<br />

LPC will be releasing an action plan to<br />

implement the recommendations early in the<br />

new year, he says.<br />

“Following that, we will be publicly releasing<br />

regular 6-monthly updates on progress on<br />

the implementation of the recommendations,<br />

as well as further measures we’ve taken to<br />

support change at LPC.<br />

“I am determined that we will build a culture<br />

where everyone feels respected for their work<br />

no matter what their gender or ethnicity.<br />

Bullying and harassment have no place at LPC.<br />

“From senior managers to our dedicated<br />

workforce, everyone has a part to play in<br />

building a new culture at LPC, and I am<br />

positive about the direction we are taking.<br />

This review is the first step in our<br />

transformation.”<br />

summary and stay up to date on progress,<br />

Soon you will be able<br />

to walk, cycle, run or<br />

scooter directly from<br />

Norwich Quay in Lyttelton<br />

along Sutton Quay to<br />

Te Ana Marina, part of LPC’s<br />

commitment to further<br />

open the west side of the<br />

waterfront for the<br />

community to enjoy.<br />

Works began in mid-November including<br />

the construction of a pathway, two new<br />

pedestrian crossings and the relocation of<br />

the Sutton Quay Port access gate, creating a<br />

pedestrian link from Norwich Quay to<br />

Te Ana Marina.<br />

Currently, there is no pedestrian access<br />

from Sutton Quay to Te Ana Marina, meaning<br />

people must either use the stairs from Simeon<br />

Quay to the back of Te Ana Marina or walk<br />

down to Godley Quay.<br />

Christchurch Deputy Mayor and Banks<br />

Peninsula ward councillor Andrew Turner<br />

says he’s excited to see the Lyttelton<br />

community gain additional access to<br />

the waterfront.<br />

“Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> is a<br />

special place to many people.<br />

We know that, particularly during the<br />

COVID-19 Level 4 lockdown earlier this year,<br />

Te Ana Marina was very a popular spot for<br />

locals to walk and enjoy some fresh air.<br />

“Providing this walkway will mean people<br />

can now easily walk from Lyttelton’s town<br />

centre to Te Ana Marina.<br />

“I’m looking forward to seeing more families<br />

and visitors down on the waterfront this<br />

summer – this is the perfect spot for a picnic, a<br />

walk along the promenade or a chance to take<br />

in the stunning harbour views.”<br />

The new pathway is expected to be<br />

completed by mid-<strong>December</strong>.<br />

Border protection measures at LPC<br />

LPC staff are working with<br />

Canterbury District Health<br />

Board and Pegasus Health<br />

to ensure New Zealand stays<br />

COVID-19 free.<br />

Marine pilots, launch crews, cargo handlers<br />

and security staff who transport ships’ crew<br />

are undergoing COVID-19 testing regularly,<br />

after the Ministry of Health made testing<br />

mandatory for border-facing staff earlier<br />

this year.<br />

GP Clinical Lead for the Canterbury<br />

Primary Response Group Hannah Gordon<br />

says the borders are our first line of defence<br />

against COVID-19, but it is important to<br />

remember what we are asking from the<br />

people who work in these places.<br />

“Most of them are being expected to have<br />

a nasal swab regularly and again if they<br />

become symptomatic.<br />

“It’s a good reminder that, if these guys<br />

can do this, the rest of us should probably<br />

front up to get a test when we are unwell.<br />

It’s the least we can do.”<br />

Pegasus Health are on site twice a week to<br />

hold testing clinics and support LPC with the<br />

mandatory testing order.<br />

LPC CEO Roger Gray says keeping<br />

our people, community and all Port users safe<br />

continues to be the focus of our response to<br />

COVID-19 at Lyttelton Port Company.<br />

“We’re proud of the way our people have<br />

adapted to a ‘new normal’ way of working.”<br />

LPC UPDATE <strong>December</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

ight relief: The Lyttelton<br />

ighthouse has returned<br />

s work on the cruise berth<br />

omes to completion, we<br />

ave been able to return the<br />

yttelton lighthouse, a historic<br />

iece of infrastructure, to<br />

ts rightful home on the<br />

astern mole in Whakaraupō/<br />

yttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

The lighthouse was built in 1878, and before<br />

advances in technology, it was an essential<br />

piece of navigation infrastructure, guiding<br />

ships into the harbour.<br />

In 2010, when the first of many<br />

earthquakes devastated Christchurch, it<br />

caused a large amount of irreparable damage<br />

on the wharf the lighthouse sat on, leaving it<br />

on a 15-degree lean.<br />

Our team quickly worked to remove the<br />

lighthouse to save the iconic structure and<br />

prevent further damage.<br />

LPC Engineer Neil McLennan says the<br />

Port team always anticipated that it would<br />

return to its original position.<br />

“The welfare of the lighthouse provided<br />

some welcome light relief during the<br />

challenging early days of our earthquake<br />

response, but we all understood that it<br />

was part of our Port heritage, important<br />

to the Lyttelton community and that we<br />

needed to take care of it,” says Neil.<br />

Moving the lighthouse is no easy feat<br />

as the wooden structure weighs 9 tonnes.<br />

Using a crane, the lighthouse was lifted<br />

onto a truck, moved down Norwich<br />

Quay and through to the end of the<br />

eastern mole structure – the same place<br />

it stood for around 140 years before the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Although the lighthouse will no<br />

longer be part of the Port’s navigation<br />

infrastructure, there will be a white<br />

display light visible at night.<br />

lighthouse returned<br />

The installation of<br />

a new live monitoring<br />

station on Gilmore<br />

Terrace in Lyttelton.<br />

Gathering dust<br />

In addition to the new station, LPC has 13<br />

dust collection sites in the Port and township,<br />

which have provided 20 years of nearcontinuous<br />

monitoring. Together with the<br />

new live monitoring station, the full story of<br />

coal dust will be revealed so that we can best<br />

understand the impact of our operations.<br />

Where does dust<br />

come from?<br />

There are numerous sources of dust in<br />

Lyttelton. These include dust particles<br />

associated with the Port as well as log<br />

burners, pollen, car emissions, soil dust<br />

and even sea salt. It’s essential not just to<br />

monitor dust levels but also to understand<br />

dust sources so that control measures can be<br />

targeted appropriately.<br />

elving into dust<br />

Coal dust resource<br />

consent renewal<br />

LPC is in the process of renewing our coal dust<br />

resource consent, which enables us to store<br />

and handle coal for export. We are currently<br />

working through the steps required to prepare<br />

our application, including detailed air quality<br />

assessments to ensure we meet (or exceed)<br />

national standards for air quality.<br />

This <strong>December</strong>, LPC is<br />

launching a new live dust<br />

monitoring station<br />

in Lyttelton.<br />

In 2021, LPC will be applying to renew its<br />

coal dust resource consent. As part of this<br />

process, a live dust monitoring station is<br />

being set up in the residential area closest to<br />

the coal stockyard.<br />

Furnished with state-of-the-art<br />

equipment, the station will provide a clear<br />

picture of dust levels and sources over a<br />

5-month period.<br />

This information will enable analysts to<br />

pinpoint exactly when high coal dust levels<br />

occur and, by looking at weather patterns<br />

and other environmental factors, understand<br />

what conditions create dust.<br />

With this insight in hand, our team will be<br />

able to make predictions with a higher level<br />

of accuracy and target our dust minimisation<br />

measures even more effectively.<br />

Three expert organisations have come<br />

together to deliver the new monitoring<br />

station, which will be helicoptered into place.<br />

The measuring equipment is provided<br />

by Mote, an Auckland-based supplier of<br />

specialist instruments.<br />

Crown research institute GNS will<br />

analyse the sources of dust collected at the<br />

station, and Tonkin + Taylor will provide an<br />

independent assessment of air quality effects.<br />

Richard Chilton, Principal Air Quality<br />

Scientist at Tonkin + Taylor, explains the<br />

benefit of live monitoring.<br />

“This station will tell us the hour-to-hour<br />

concentrations of fine particles. Combined<br />

with GNS’s analysis of dust sources, we will<br />

be able to understand where dust is coming<br />

from and what impact, if any, the coal<br />

stockyard is having in the community.”<br />

Data from the live monitoring station will<br />

be uploaded to the LPC coal dust consent<br />

webpage.<br />

Once the results are fully analysed, LPC<br />

will discuss the findings with the community<br />

at a drop-in session planned for autumn 2021.<br />

LPC UPDATE <strong>December</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

Chinese antarctic research vessel<br />

welcomed to Lyttelton<br />

Last month the Chinese<br />

antarctic research vessel,<br />

Xue Long 2 was welcomed<br />

into Lyttelton in a rather<br />

untraditional way.<br />

With crew unable to leave the ship due to<br />

COVID-19 restrictions, a drone was used to fly<br />

a gift onto the vessel, for the almost 100 crew<br />

members on deck to receive.<br />

Christchurch City Council,<br />

ChristchurchNZ and the Christchurch<br />

Antarctic Office presented a gift to the vessel<br />

for their first visit to New Zealand. LPC GM<br />

Bulk Cargo and Marine Paul Monk was on<br />

hand to collect a gift from the crew in return,<br />

which spent 14 days in quarantine before it<br />

could be opened.<br />

“It’s fantastic that LPC could support the<br />

welcoming of the vessel and crew, it was<br />

a unique and memorable experience for<br />

everyone involved,” says Paul<br />

“COVID-19 has forced us to grow and<br />

adapt in ways we never expected to, with<br />

this event just another example of how LPC<br />

and Christchurch has managed to adjust to<br />

ensure everyone stays safe.”<br />

Christchurch is one of five gateway<br />

cities to Antarctica, with Lyttelton Port<br />

having a long history as a base for Antarctic<br />

exploration for not only New Zealanders but<br />

international Antarctic explorers.<br />

“Being one of only five cities in the world<br />

with an Antarctic connection is incredibly<br />

special and it’s great to come together and<br />

celebrate that,” says Paul.<br />

Lyttelton Port is often used as a place<br />

for vessels to restock and prepare, before<br />

heading straight to the Antarctic, with<br />

supplies for the Chinese vessel quarantined<br />

then delivered through a contact free<br />

process.<br />

Departing from China, the crew were<br />

at sea for 17 days before they arrived in<br />

Lyttelton, and after two days, headed for<br />

Zhongshan Station in Antarctica.<br />

The Xue Long 2 carries members of<br />

the ‘37th Chinese expedition’ to Antarctica<br />

for scientific research, with this<br />

expedition, looking at microplastics in<br />

the Antarctic Ocean as well as carrying<br />

out hydrological, meteorological, and<br />

environmental investigations.<br />

LPC UPDATE <strong>December</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

ruise berth opening<br />

ew Zealand’s first purposeuilt<br />

cruise ship facility was<br />

fficially opened last month<br />

y the Mayor of Christchurch,<br />

on. Lianne Dalziel.<br />

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

project managers and engineers have worked<br />

tirelessly to build the cruise berth.<br />

A redesign of the berth in the early stages<br />

of the project has minimised the number and<br />

size of piles in the wharf and significantly<br />

reduced underwater noise, which can affect<br />

marine mammals – notably Hector’s dolphins,<br />

which are endemic to the South Island.<br />

LPC Chief Executive Officer Roger Gray<br />

says the project raised the standard of<br />

practice in protecting marine mammals in<br />

construction projects in New Zealand by<br />

designing with nature in mind.<br />

The redesign of the wharf structure<br />

also presented LPC an opportunity to<br />

significantly reduce the embodied carbon<br />

emissions of the wharf by adopting a design<br />

that reduced steel and concrete use.<br />

Overall, the redesign of the berth resulted<br />

in a 50% reduction in embodied carbon<br />

emissions created in the construction of<br />

the berth.<br />

“As a major player in Whakaraupō/<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>, we know we have a<br />

responsibility to not only protect our marine<br />

environment but also play our part in<br />

contributing to addressing climate change,”<br />

says Roger.<br />

LPC remains positive about the berth’s<br />

future as a long-term asset for Lyttelton Port.<br />

“Last month, we welcomed Heritage<br />

Expeditions’ flagship vessel Spirit of Enderby<br />

to the berth, which has been granted an<br />

exemption by the government to operate<br />

domestic expedition cruises in New Zealand<br />

this season,” says Roger.<br />

LPC is also exploring opportunities to use<br />

the berth for other inner harbour operations,<br />

including using the space for fishing vessels,<br />

Antarctic research vessels and some bulk<br />

cargo operations.<br />

“The berth is an asset for LPC and<br />

will free up much needed capacity in our<br />

inner harbour.<br />

While we are disappointed this cruise<br />

season will be impacted by the COVID-19<br />

pandemic, we will be ready to welcome cruise<br />

ships when they do return,” says Roger.<br />

“LPC remains<br />

positive about the<br />

berth’s future as a<br />

long-term asset for<br />

Lyttelton Port.”<br />

The sustainable solution<br />

Creating sustainable nappies<br />

is not an easy task, but a<br />

successful New Zealand<br />

company is proving these<br />

household essentials can be<br />

made with the environment<br />

in mind.<br />

oopii is a New Zealand nappy brand with a<br />

ocal Lyttelton connection that is driven by<br />

aking products that not only benefit the<br />

nvironment, but as a social enterprise company,<br />

hey are focused on helping wider communities<br />

ith strong social and environmental drivers.<br />

The award-winning products are<br />

eveloped and designed in New Zealand and<br />

anufactured overseas.<br />

The nappies then arrive at Auckland Port<br />

for North Island distribution before they<br />

are shipped to Lyttelton to be dispatched<br />

across the South Island.<br />

Noopii nappies are made from more than<br />

70% plant-based sustainable and renewable<br />

materials, have a cotton blend outer, paper<br />

packaging and contain mānuka hydrosol,<br />

making them naturally anti-bacterial and<br />

helping to prevent nappy rash – a world<br />

first.<br />

CEO Bridget Bodie-Healy says Noopii<br />

was made to be a ‘challenger’ brand to<br />

conventional nappies on the New Zealand<br />

market and will be exported worldwide.<br />

“Whenever we need to make a decision<br />

for the company, we just ask if this is<br />

going to serve children, families and the<br />

environment.<br />

We run our thinking through our<br />

environmental, social and healthcare lens.<br />

If it’s not going to have a positive impact,<br />

then we don’t move forward with it.<br />

In that respect, it’s quite simplistic – it’s<br />

the product design that often provides<br />

the challenge.”<br />

For each pack sold, a percentage of<br />

funds is donated to the Trees that Count<br />

programme through the Noopii One Pack<br />

One Tree initiative supporting reforestation<br />

as well as native species and habitat<br />

recovery organisations Yellow-eyed Penguin<br />

Trust, Forest & Bird and Project Jonah NZ.<br />

When asked about starting a new<br />

business, Bridget says it’s all about<br />

confidence and determination.<br />

“If you spend all your time sitting and<br />

wondering, you’ll never get anywhere. It’s<br />

all about hard work, determination and<br />

commitment. Making a world-class awardwinning<br />

brand takes high productivity,<br />

passion and laser focus.”

LPC UPDATE <strong>December</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

ena the conservation dog<br />

Alastair and Mena<br />

were able to locate<br />

20 penguin nests<br />

around the harbour,<br />

including this little<br />

penguin pictured.<br />

As part of LPC’s Biodiversity<br />

Positive strategy we’re focused<br />

on being a good neighbour,<br />

not only to the community,<br />

but also to the animals of<br />

conservation significance we<br />

share the environment with.<br />

The seawalls around the Port are a great<br />

habitat for white-flippered penguins and this<br />

time of year they can often be found onshore<br />

laying eggs and raising chicks.<br />

They breed only on Banks Peninsula and<br />

Motunau Island and are considered to be the<br />

one and only indigenous creature unique to<br />

Canterbury, New Zealand.<br />

LPC’s Head of Sustainability and<br />

Environment Kim Kelleher says we want to<br />

make sure we keep our feathered friends safe<br />

while they’re on land so every year we do a<br />

full survey of our coastal sea walls to locate<br />

the nest sites and protect them.<br />

We have a special helper to do that - Mena<br />

the conservation dog and her trainer Alastair<br />

were back at LPC recently to locate any<br />

penguins that may be nesting in the seawalls<br />

around the Port.<br />

The pair are from the Kaikōura Ocean<br />

Research Institute and work together to<br />

track penguins through a keen sense of smell<br />

as well as visual indicators that suggest the<br />

presence of white-flippered penguins.<br />

Alastair and Mena were able to locate 20<br />

penguin nests around the Port, including this<br />

little penguin pictured.<br />

“One of the main things we can all do to<br />

help protect the white-flippered penguins is<br />

to have good predator control (ferrets, feral<br />

cats and stoats) and keep our domestic pets,<br />

cats and dogs away from the coastal strip<br />

during the nesting season,” says Kim.<br />

“As part of our biodiversity positive<br />

approach, we value nature and support and<br />

protect the special wildlife we share the<br />

harbour with.”<br />

Pop Up Penguins celebrate<br />

creativity and exploration this<br />

summer in Christchurch<br />

Pop Up Penguins have hit<br />

the streets of Christchurch<br />

with LPC co-sponsoring<br />

Little Blue, which is set to<br />

feature in Lyttelton’s town<br />

square for 10 weeks.<br />

LPC’s GM Engagement<br />

and Sustainability Phil de<br />

Joux and CEO Roger Gray<br />

standing with Little Blue in<br />

Albion Square.<br />

After the success of the Christchurch<br />

Stands Tall giraffes, this summer, 50 large<br />

and 65 small penguin sculptures have been<br />

spread around Ōtautahi, featuring designs<br />

by emerging and established local artists.<br />

LPC is proud to be supporting this<br />

initiative and is sponsoring a penguin along<br />

with two other local companies, Structex<br />

and Lyttelton Engineering.<br />

LPC General Manager Engagement<br />

and Sustainability Phil de Joux says<br />

it’s important to be supporting the<br />

community in a creative and innovative<br />

way, with the theme of penguins drawing<br />

a special significance.<br />

“Christchurch is a gateway city to<br />

Antarctica, with Lyttelton Port being the<br />

connection to the ice, so Pop Up Penguins<br />

is a chance to celebrate and educate<br />

people around the importance of this and<br />

encourage exploration in a new generation.<br />

“The harbour also has a special<br />

connection to the hoiho as one of their main<br />

breeding grounds is in Banks Peninsula.”<br />

The penguin was designed by Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> artist Debbie Porter who was<br />

inspired by the penguins that live in<br />

the harbour, their habitat and diet and<br />

the ocean.<br />

After the 10 weeks on display, the<br />

penguins will be auctioned off, with the<br />

proceeds going to Cholmondeley, a charity<br />

that supports children of families in crisis.<br />

“We are proud to be supporting<br />

Cholmondeley through this project, who<br />

have been operating in Banks Peninsula<br />

and supporting Canterbury families for<br />

nearly a century,” says Phil.

Timber from deconstructed<br />

wharves at LPC has been<br />

put to good use and upcycled<br />

into planter boxes for Project<br />

Lyttelton’s community garden.<br />

The timber has been donated over the last<br />

three years and was used to construct<br />

14 vegetable and flower boxes. Our Civil<br />

Maintenance Team ensured the timber was<br />

safely transported to the community garden.<br />

The garden, which started <strong>16</strong> years ago,<br />

is maintained by a committed group of<br />

volunteers who work on the garden<br />

every Wednesday.<br />

Project Lyttelton Manager Jacqueline<br />

Newbound says the community garden offers<br />

a great chance to get to know people you<br />

wouldn’t normally meet.<br />

“We have a great range of people that<br />

come here, from young to old with everyone<br />

working together towards a common goal.”<br />

Not only is produce available to the<br />

volunteers who help grow it, Project Lyttelton<br />

also donates vegetables to Lyttelton’s<br />

Community House.<br />

Along with the planter boxes, the garden<br />

also has an orchard, a glasshouse, a nursery<br />

and several chickens and plans to install<br />

hydroponics in the future.<br />
