Lyttelton residents<br />

up in arms over<br />

Ōtautahi<br />

flags on<br />

port streets<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

LYTTELTON residents are<br />

concerned over the new<br />

Ōtautahi and Christchurchnamed<br />

flags lining the port’s<br />

streets.<br />

The flags were recently put<br />

up as part of ChristchurchNZ’s<br />

overall city image work.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is the city<br />

council’s tourism, marketing<br />

and economic development<br />

arm.<br />

People say the flags should<br />

reflect the area with wording of<br />

Lyttelton and Ōhinehou, Lyttelton’s<br />

te reo Māori name.<br />

Feedback from local residents<br />

grabbed the attention of Banks<br />

Peninsula Ward city councillor<br />

and Deputy Mayor Andrew<br />

Turner.<br />

Turner has lived in Lyttelton<br />

since 2003.<br />

“Lyttelton is distinct<br />

from Christchurch, both<br />

geographically and culturally;<br />

it is a Banks Peninsula town<br />

not a Christchurch suburb. It’s<br />

similar to Akaroa, despite<br />

being part of the wider<br />

Christchurch City Council<br />

area,” he said.<br />

The most important issue<br />

to Turner is respecting Māori<br />

culture.<br />

BAY HARBOUR<br />

Walkway accessing marina open<br />

YOU CAN now walk, cycle,<br />

run or scooter directly from<br />

Norwich Quay in Lyttelton to<br />

Te Ana Marina.<br />

The pathway from Norwich<br />

Quay along Sutton Quay<br />

includes two pedestrian<br />

crossings. This creates a<br />

direct link from Lyttelton to<br />

Te Ana Marina, Canterbury’s<br />

only walk-on floating<br />

marina.<br />

The new development is<br />

part of Lyttelton Port Company’s<br />

commitment to open<br />

the west side of the harbour<br />

as a space for the community<br />

to enjoy.<br />

When the project was announced<br />

last year, Deputy<br />

Mayor and city councillor for<br />

the Banks Peninsula Ward<br />

Andrew Turner said he was<br />

excited to see the Lyttelton<br />

community gain additional<br />

access to the waterfront.<br />

“Whakaraupō/Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> is a special place to<br />

many people.<br />

“I’m looking forward to<br />

seeing more families and<br />

visitors down on the waterfront<br />

this summer – this is<br />

the perfect spot for a picnic, a<br />

walk along the promenade or<br />

a chance to take in the stunning<br />

harbour views.”<br />

LPC’s general manager engagement<br />

and sustainability<br />

Phil de Joux said since Te<br />

Ana Marina was opened by<br />

the port in 2018, it has been<br />

fantastic to see the community<br />

use the recreational area as<br />

a space to connect and enjoy.<br />

“Before the pathway was<br />

in place, there was no pedestrian<br />

access from Sutton<br />

Quay to Te Ana Marina,<br />

meaning people either used<br />

the stairs from Simeon<br />

Quay to the back of Te Ana<br />

Marina, or walked down to<br />

Godley Quay.<br />

“We’re thrilled to be able to<br />

make accessing Te Ana Marina<br />

that little bit easier for the<br />

community and visitors to<br />

Lyttelton, and look forward<br />

to seeing more people enjoy<br />

the waterfront.”<br />

Due to the construction of<br />

the pathway, the Sutton Quay<br />

gate has been relocated. This<br />

gate is used by a number of<br />

port operators to access inner<br />

harbour operations such as<br />

fishing vessels.<br />

Vehicles will still use Sutton<br />

Quay to access the port<br />

and users of the walkway are<br />

being told to follow signage<br />

in place and to stay alert<br />

when using the crossings.<br />

CONVENIENT: Lyttelton resident<br />

Annabel, 10, (right) who lives on the<br />

west side of the harbour, can use<br />

the new path to walk to school, as<br />

well as visit her friend Lulu, 10, who<br />

lives in Lyttelton. ​<br />

Retaining wall<br />

work to start<br />

ROADWORKS along Simeon Quay<br />

and Coleridge Tce in Lyttelton are<br />

set to cause disruption for the next<br />

few months.<br />

Work will start early next month<br />

to replace the ageing retaining wall<br />

that supports part of Simeon Quay.<br />

A new concrete wall will be put in<br />

place and the quay will be partially<br />

reconstructed. It is expected to take<br />

between four to six months to complete,<br />

weather dependent.<br />

City council head of transport,<br />

Richard Osborne said: “The<br />

contractor is going to have crews<br />

working around the clock on the<br />

project. On some nights, Simeon<br />

Quay will be reduced to one lane<br />

and traffic will be controlled by<br />

stop/go signs. This will cause<br />

delays, particularly for west-bound<br />

traffic.”<br />

A retaining wall supporting<br />

Coleridge Tce will also be replaced<br />

starting in February, expected to<br />

take around 16 weeks to complete.<br />

During this time, access to the terrace<br />

will only be via the west end,<br />

by London St.<br />

A traffic management plan will<br />

be put in place and road users are<br />

being told to expect delays.<br />

“If you live in Lyttelton or travel<br />

through the area, please bear that<br />

in mind as you may need to factor<br />

some extra journey time into your<br />

plans,” said Osborne.<br />

Extra care called for after rescues<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

BEWARE OF rips. Swim<br />

between the flags. Know your<br />

limits.<br />

That is the message from the<br />

Taylors Mistake and Sumner<br />

Surf Life Saving Clubs as temperatures<br />

soar this week.<br />

It comes after two people<br />

were lucky not to have died in<br />

separate incidents at Taylors<br />

Mistake on Sunday,<br />

<strong>January</strong> 17.<br />

Instead they<br />

were saved by<br />

the quick thinking<br />

of the club<br />

team members.<br />

Tisha<br />

Bradley<br />

The first<br />

rescue happend<br />

in the early<br />

afternoon, with the conditions<br />

changing drastically as the tide<br />

went out. The second rescue<br />

happened at 4.50pm, with<br />

10min left until the volunteers<br />

usually retire for the day.<br />

In both instances, the swimmers<br />

were taken to hospital by<br />

ambulance.<br />

After the rescues, the<br />

lifeguards carried out<br />

preventative actions; moving<br />

the flags, advising swimmers<br />

of where the rips were running<br />

and working in the water to<br />

direct people away.<br />

Surf club captain Tisha Bradley<br />

said: “These actions mitigated<br />

the risk of mishap and<br />

the need for further rescues.<br />

“We are hugely proud of the<br />

work of the rostered patrol<br />

team on Sunday, as well as the<br />

additional members who recognised<br />

the growing risks on<br />

the beach and joined with the<br />

existing patrol to ensure that<br />

we had an increased capacity.<br />

“This was a wonderful example<br />

of the club coming together<br />

as one to keep our community<br />

safe. We are a humble wee club,<br />

but in these moments we<br />

are super proud of how our<br />

volunteers respond in difficult<br />

situations.”<br />

The club would also like to<br />

thank the public who acknowledged<br />

their efforts on Sunday.<br />

“It means a lot to us when<br />

the community acknowledges<br />

our volunteers and the valuable<br />

work that they do,” said<br />

Bradley.<br />

Meanwhile, Sumner Surf<br />

Life Saving Club was awarded<br />

second place in the BP Rescue<br />

of the Month awards for a<br />

rescue in December.<br />

Twenty-seven swimmers<br />

were rescued from a rip in 10<br />

minutes.<br />

Further water<br />

restrictions<br />

WATER restrictions have been<br />

increased from level 2 to level<br />

3 for Akaroa, Duvauchelle and<br />

Takamatua as increasingly hot and<br />

windy conditions put pressure on<br />

water supplies.<br />

Level 3 restrictions means<br />

hand-held hosing only on alternate<br />

days, with no outdoor water<br />

use on any day between 3-9pm.<br />

Unattended hoses, sprinklers, and<br />

garden irrigation systems are not<br />

permitted at any time.<br />

Akaroa’s cumulative rainfall this<br />

year is the lowest it has been in a<br />

decade, putting extra pressure on<br />

the town’s water supply which it<br />

shares with Takamatua. Its current<br />

total rainfall for the year sits at<br />

about half the 10-year average.<br />

Water is being used from backup<br />

bores and from streams.<br />

“But in order to ensure a fair<br />

and uninterrupted water supply to<br />

people living, working and visiting<br />

in the areas, we need to further<br />

reduce the demand by moving to<br />

Level 3 water restrictions,” a city<br />

council spokeswoman said.<br />

Residents at odd-numbered<br />

addresses can water lawns or<br />

gardens before 3pm or after 9pm<br />

on odd dates (1st, 3rd, 15th, etc),<br />

while residents at even-numbered<br />

addresses can water before 3pm or<br />

after 9pm on even dates.<br />

POWER VINYASA YOGA<br />

Many people find Apollo’s Power Vinyasa practice to be effective in<br />

relieving and preventing back pain and tension-related types of pain<br />

yoga pose<br />

of the month<br />

Standing Leg Raise<br />

Standing Leg Raise is a great pose to build<br />

balance, posture, length in your hamstrings<br />

and strength in your hip flexors.<br />

1. Stand upright with your feet together.<br />

2. Draw your right knee up towards your chest<br />

and lightly hold your right knee with your<br />

right hand. Use the strength of your leg<br />

more than the strength of your hand to hold<br />

your right leg up. If you are more flexible,<br />

bind the outer edge of your right foot and<br />

extend your right leg straight forward in<br />

front of you.<br />

3. Straighten your left leg by engaging your<br />

thigh muscles to the bone.<br />

4. Draw the pit of your belly in towards your<br />

spine.<br />

5. Expand your chest and upper back.<br />

6. If you are holding your foot, draw your right<br />

shoulder straight back level with your left<br />

shoulder.<br />

7. Straighten your<br />

back, hold your head<br />

high and set your gaze<br />

straight in front of you.<br />

8. After 5 breaths, turn your<br />

right leg out towards the<br />

right side of your room and<br />

turn your head to face the<br />

left.<br />

9. Keep your hips level in this<br />

second stage. Do not hike<br />

your right hip higher than<br />

your left hip.<br />

10. After five more<br />

breaths return<br />

your right leg straight forward, lower your<br />

right foot to the earth and repeat the pose<br />

on the other leg.<br />

In Standing Leg Raise, build a blend of strength and mobility in your legs, align your body neutrally<br />

and generate a sense of confidence that permeates from your bones and radiates out to your skin<br />

and beyond.<br />

As we are right in the<br />

peak of Summer, you<br />

should think about using<br />

water wisely. Water early<br />

morning as this prevents<br />

it from evaporating in<br />

the heat<br />

It’s very sunny at the<br />

moment which means<br />

plants will be growing faster<br />

than usual so fertilising<br />

now is recommended both<br />

with liquid and granular<br />

fertilisers.<br />

BAY HARBOUR<br />

• From page 1<br />

“The main issue is the appropriateness<br />

of Ōtautahi, as the<br />

name for Christchurch, being<br />

used beyond the traditional<br />

Christchurch area and expanding<br />

into Banks Peninsula, especially<br />

when Lyttelton is Ōhinehou and<br />

the harbour is Te Whakaraupō.”<br />

Turner discussed the community’s<br />

concerns with ChristchurchNZ<br />

this week.<br />

“I asked ChristchurchNZ to<br />

take advice and consider whether<br />

the use of the specific Ōtautahi<br />

flags are appropriate for Lyttelton.<br />

And if not, then they need<br />

to decide what flags should fly<br />

instead.’’<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

AKAROA RESIDENTS are also<br />

embroiled in a debate over its<br />

name.<br />

A call has been made to add<br />

‘wh’ to Akaroa.<br />

Ngāi Tahu kaumatua Sir<br />

Tipene O’Regan said early<br />

surveyors to the land had been<br />

unable to distinguish the soft<br />

‘wh’ and because of this, it was<br />

often missed when spelling<br />

Akaroa on colonial maps.<br />

The original name means<br />

‘Long <strong>Harbour</strong>.’<br />

This week <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What are your thoughts on the flags in Lyttelton and the name Whakaroa for Akaroa.<br />

Email your views to samantha.mythen@starmedia.kiwi<br />

‘The council should have consulted with the local iwi’<br />

A ChristchurchNZ spokesperson<br />

said: “We are looking at<br />

options in regards to the street<br />

banners in Lyttelton, and are yet<br />

to undertake any actions.”<br />

When asked previously by<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News if it would<br />

replace the Ōtautahi flags, the<br />

spokesperson said: “This activity<br />

is not budgeted for this financial<br />

year, nor is the future design and<br />

installation of suburb-specific<br />

banners.”<br />

ChristchurchNZ said it recognised<br />

“the individual culture<br />

of Ōhinehou Lyttelton and the<br />

vibrant community that call it<br />

home.”<br />

“However for planning and<br />

marketing purposes, it is considered<br />

a suburb of the city of<br />

Ōtautahi Christchurch.”<br />

The total cost to manufacture<br />

the banners to cover core city<br />

sites was $22,134 plus GST.<br />

This issue has been a large<br />

talking point in the Lyttelton<br />

community.<br />

Said Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> Business<br />

Association chairwoman<br />

Vicki Tahau-Paton: “The council<br />

should have consulted with the<br />

local iwi before putting up a<br />

generic name.”<br />

Said Malcome Carne: “I would<br />

prefer to see Lyttelton on the<br />

flags. We have our own separate<br />

identity and physicality. The flag<br />

issue is about keeping separate<br />

rather than making Lyttelton a<br />

suburb.”<br />

Said Rob De Thier: “It would be<br />

nice to see the flags replaced with<br />

Lyttelton and Ōhinehou. It has<br />

always been the port of Lyttelton<br />

with its own special identity.”<br />

Several people mentioned the<br />

importance of Lyttelton flags so<br />

those visiting would be able to<br />

identify the town.<br />

Said Sachin Jacob: “The flags<br />

should say Lyttelton, so everyone<br />

who visits can clearly recognise it<br />

as that.’’<br />

Said Charlotte Bruce: “Because<br />

of the strong community perspective<br />

here, it makes sense for<br />

the flags to say Lyttelton. It’s a<br />

destination place. Lyttelton locals<br />

are proud of their home.<br />

“It would be cool to see a<br />

mixture of place names on<br />

the flags, with both Lyttelton,<br />

Christchurch and the Maori<br />

translations.”<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board member, Reuben Davidson,<br />

would also like to see the<br />

flags changed.<br />

“Lyttelton has a strong identity<br />

which we are proud of; both<br />

locals and visitors want to<br />

celebrate this. Also, of primary<br />

consideration, is the need to<br />

honour the correct Māori name<br />

for our special place,” he said.<br />

Call to change Akaroa’s name by adding ‘wh’<br />

canvassed Akaroa residents.<br />

Said Rob Harris: “There<br />

is no need to change it as no<br />

one knows it by the other<br />

name.’’<br />

Said Lurlene Roddick: “I don’t<br />

understand why everything has<br />

to be changed from what it<br />

has been known as to a word<br />

more difficult to pronounce.<br />

We should understand culture<br />

and know our history, but we<br />

are a very multi-cultural<br />

country.”<br />

Said Michael Springer: “It<br />

is time to fully celebrate and<br />

acknowledge those hundreds of<br />

years of people living here. You<br />

only have to open your eyes and<br />

notice all the fortified hill sights<br />

to wonder at all the history,<br />

rather than making it all about<br />

a brief moment of when it might<br />

have been French.”<br />

Said Grant Wylie: “I think it<br />

respects a place more to call it by<br />

its original and most meaningful<br />

version, and not what a colonist<br />

with a bad ear for the Ngai Tahu<br />

dialect or te reo Maori more<br />

generally recorded as is.”<br />

Said Mal Stanley: “I think we<br />

should embrace the te reo names<br />

for all places in Aoetearoa,<br />

and correct pronunciation is<br />

something to aspire to for all of<br />

us.”<br />

Another resident, Wayne Allan<br />

Webb, suggested having signs<br />

with both versions.<br />

Children’s<br />

learning<br />

inspires<br />

artwork<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

SUMNER creatives, Alex and<br />

Andy Collins, are showcasing<br />

their quirky handcrafted<br />

wooden toys at the Rock, a<br />

charitable church community.<br />

The couple design and craft<br />

toys and<br />

then<br />

display<br />

them as 3D<br />

textured<br />

paintings.<br />

The toys<br />

on display are all original pieces<br />

under their brand Baby Groova<br />

Goods.<br />

“We are inspired by our passion<br />

for children’s learning and<br />

development, story telling and<br />

our love for nature and the environment,”<br />

said Andy.<br />

Andy is a preschool teacher<br />

and Alex, his wife, is a primary<br />

school teacher. They have been<br />

living in Sumner for two years.<br />

Pairing Alex’s creative streak<br />

with Andy’s interest in art and<br />

wood, each toy is handcrafted.<br />

The exhibition runs at 10<br />

Wakefield Ave, until the last<br />

week of February.<br />

Community board outlines priorities<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

UPGRADING wharves,<br />

sourcing funding for the new<br />

Naval Point development, and<br />

long-term planning are just<br />

some of the priorities the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

has in the coming months.<br />

Five main themes are set to be<br />

prioritised early this year.<br />

The board<br />

must finalise<br />

its Long<br />

Term Plan<br />

for the next<br />

three years by<br />

June. The city<br />

council can<br />

then lock in<br />

Tori Peden<br />

the allocated<br />

budget for the<br />

area.<br />

After the Naval Point<br />

Development Plan was approved<br />

by the board in December, the<br />

next step will focus on sourcing<br />

funds and then deciding how to<br />

implement the plan.<br />

The Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> wharf<br />

is set to see upgrades and a<br />

new flotation structure put in<br />

place, aiming to solve continued<br />

accessibility issues experienced<br />

by ferry passengers.<br />

Receiving feedback on<br />

upgrades for the Akaroa wharf<br />

will also be a priority. The<br />

UPGRADE: The Banks Peninsula Community Board is looking at options for the Akaroa<br />

wharf.<br />

board is looking to put together<br />

different options for the wharf,<br />

taking into consideration<br />

heritage and environmental<br />

concerns. This will then be<br />

presented to the public.<br />

Board chairwoman Tori Peden<br />

said: “We want to know what the<br />

community wants to see.”<br />

The final primary focus for the<br />

board will be working alongside<br />

the Banks Peninsula community<br />

and the ChristchurchNZ<br />

tourism portfolio to create a<br />

destination management plan<br />

for the area.<br />

“Locals are taking up the<br />

advice to shop local and explore<br />

local, meaning tourism is still<br />

an important resource. I have<br />

lived in the Banks Peninsula for<br />

19 years and this summer was<br />

my first time taking my kids out<br />

to see the hector’s dolphins in<br />

Akaroa,” said Peden.<br />

“We want to use this time<br />

to investigate tourism in the<br />

region and how it impacts the<br />

community, taking a holistic<br />

view on how to move<br />

forward.”<br />

If people would like to share<br />

your views with the community<br />

board, monthly meetings are<br />

held around the peninsula, said<br />

Peden.<br />

“Myself and the other board<br />

members like to get out and<br />

about as much as possible. Please<br />

approach us with your cool ideas<br />

and we can chat about how the<br />

board can support you.”<br />

A GROUP of philanthropic ex-business<br />

owners are seeking to help young<br />

people in schools within the Sumner-<br />

Ferrymead suburbs fulfil their academic<br />

achievements with a new monetary<br />

award.<br />

The Sumner Ferrymead Foundation,<br />

a charity aiming to support its local<br />

community, has created the Te Raekuru<br />

Puawai (flourish) Awards.<br />

Te Raekura Redcliffs School was the<br />

first school in the area to introduce the<br />

awards late last year.<br />

Three year 8 pupils, Luke Jansen, Lotta<br />

Bennett and Maddison Parker were the<br />

fortunate recipients, each excelling in<br />

different subjects being sport, reading and<br />

maths respectively.<br />

The award money is to be used for educational<br />

purposes. All three pupils chose<br />

to put the funds towards the purchase of<br />

a new computer, a useful choice as they<br />

transition into high school this year.<br />

Trustee John Christensen, said:<br />

“Transitioning from primary to<br />

secondary school is not an inexpensive<br />

exercise for parents so if the foundation<br />

can help with an educational grant, then<br />

it makes total sense. I am delighted the<br />

awards are being used for purchasing<br />

technology.”<br />

The foundation is hoping to expand the<br />

award to other primary schools within<br />

their catchment area.<br />

Another trustee Jane Paterson said:<br />

“We want to give kids every opportunity<br />

so they can flourish and thrive. They are<br />

the future and it’s about creating a cycle<br />

where the more mature locals can help<br />

the young generations. Then in 30-40<br />

years, they will give back and the cycle<br />

will continue.”<br />

The foundation also helped Te Raekura<br />

Redcliffs School to purchase more reading<br />

books to be used in their MSL (multisensory<br />

structured language) programme.<br />

Internationally, MSL is recognised as the<br />

“science behind people learning to read”.<br />

The school had chosen to pilot the MSL<br />

approach to combat the low literacy rates<br />

increasingly seen in New Zealand, and<br />

since its success, it has now been rolled<br />

out to all pupils.<br />

While the MSL approach is considered<br />

essential for more than 50 per cent of<br />

children (including those with dyslexia),<br />

even the 40 per cent who find learning<br />

to read relatively easy benefit from the<br />

approach too.<br />

The foundation has a grant system and<br />

any school or young person can approach<br />

it and apply for funding of academic or<br />

sporting goals.<br />

Paterson said: “Education opens doors.”<br />

Start-up support for Covid-19<br />

impacted jobseekers<br />

• By Simon Anderson<br />

IT’S THAT TIME of year when<br />

everyone is thinking about what<br />

they want to achieve in <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

I think we’d all rather forget<br />

2020 but for some it’s not so easy.<br />

Many people have lost jobs, had<br />

to reduce hours or change their<br />

employment situation and are still<br />

feeling the blow that Covid-19<br />

has dealt our economy and<br />

community.<br />

As an indicator, in November<br />

2019 there were 13,656 jobseeker<br />

support recipients in Canterbury<br />

compared to 21,057 in November<br />

2020, an increase of 7400<br />

recipients.<br />

If you’re one of these people<br />

or were unemployed prior to the<br />

pandemic – and are thinking of<br />

starting your own business, we<br />

can help.<br />

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

Higher unemployment impacts<br />

more significantly on those in<br />

lower skilled roles and our<br />

How do you start your<br />

own<br />

unemployed.<br />

business?<br />

Start Me Up is a business<br />

skills kick-starter programme<br />

aimed at people whose work has<br />

been impacted by the pandemic<br />

and are currently, or soon to<br />

be, registered as unemployed.<br />

It is also open to those who<br />

were – school unemployed leavers, prior tertiary to the<br />

pandemic.<br />

It has been specifically designed<br />

to guide people who are thinking<br />

about starting a business but don’t<br />

know where to begin.<br />

Māori From catering and industry. to digital<br />

marketing to selling handcrafted<br />

goods, business ideas of all<br />

kinds are welcomed – but the<br />

programme is not limited to<br />

those that have an idea.<br />

If you’ve ever thought of<br />

starting your own business, we<br />

would definitely encourage you to<br />

sign up to the programme. Even<br />

if you haven’t got an idea, we<br />

can help you work through the<br />

process of coming up with one.<br />

There are two parts to the<br />

programme – the first is an online<br />

short course exploring what it’s<br />

like to start a business and be<br />

self-employed. The online classes<br />

will cover topics such as who<br />

your customers could be, what<br />

problem your business will solve,<br />

how to structure the business,<br />

how to get sales and measure<br />

your progress.<br />

Having completed the online<br />

programme, 25 participants who<br />

want to get serious about building<br />

their business will be selected for<br />

an in-person Accelerator.<br />

The Accelerator will follow the<br />

same framework introduced in<br />

part 1, but will drill deeper in on<br />

each component to help create a<br />

more in-depth business plan that<br />

can be used to get started, to get<br />

funding or simply as a guide for<br />

you in your next steps.<br />

And what are we doing?<br />

We are supporting the journey<br />

for labour market priority groups<br />

graduates, NEET (young people<br />

not in employment, education or<br />

training), impacted workers,<br />

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

and to identify gaps, we are<br />

mapping the support available<br />

from iwi, central and local<br />

government agencies, our<br />

education providers, charitable<br />

trusts, and other support groups.<br />

Impact projects can then be<br />

delivered to provide support<br />

where needed.<br />

It is critical we ensure our<br />

community has access to the<br />

information they need, and is<br />

aware of the help available.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is developing<br />

regional information resources<br />

and working to ensure this gets<br />

into the hands of those who<br />

Online classes with local experts will cover the<br />

fundamentals of starting a business.<br />

need it.<br />

Access to the best<br />

support in town<br />

Both the online and in-person<br />

components will give participants<br />

access to support across the city’s<br />

network to help make their idea a<br />

success.<br />

This will include a team of<br />

successful entrepreneurs, mentors<br />

and start-up experts – people<br />

that have all been there and done<br />

it before and can share their<br />

experiences, both the highs and<br />

the lows with you.<br />

If you are selected to take<br />

part in the Accelerator, your<br />

business plan will be reviewed<br />

by a Westpac loan specialist to<br />

see if it is eligible for a business<br />

loan. If it isn’t, you may be eligible<br />

for support to get your business<br />

started from the Ministry of<br />

Social Development. However,<br />

there’s no guarantees you’ll<br />

receive funding as a result of<br />

taking part in the programme.<br />

Don’t just take it from me<br />

Lisa Schmidt has already<br />

submitted her application for<br />

Start Me Up and is excited about<br />

the opportunities the programme<br />

will provide.<br />

Lisa is an artist and has a<br />

passion for creating sustainable<br />

artwork made from natural<br />

elements or repurposed goods<br />

(pictured). When a recent<br />

business venture selling her art<br />

didn’t work out financially, Lisa<br />

realised that working on her<br />

business skills including how to<br />

sell and get exposure for her work<br />

was essential. Lisa is strongly<br />

connected to Banks Peninsula<br />

and wishes to continue creating<br />

her art there and starting an art<br />

collective with other talented<br />

local female artists.<br />

Why are we doing it?<br />

Start Me Up is a collaboration<br />

between ChristchurchNZ and the<br />

Ministry of Social Development<br />

and is a key action in the<br />

Ōtautahi Christchurch Recovery<br />

Plan which sets out the actions<br />

to make sure our city’s economic<br />

and social recovery from the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic is deliberate,<br />

strong and equitable.<br />

Give it a go<br />

programme and register online at<br />

www.startmeup.co.nz<br />

We are also developing a<br />

Regional Workforce Plan that<br />

identifies the skills available and<br />

needed now and in the future.<br />

This plan will inform central<br />

government investment and<br />

policy in education, immigration<br />

and community interventions;<br />

and will enable us to better<br />

understand what skills<br />

Christchurch’s future economy<br />

will require. That in turn will<br />

allow us to work with education<br />

providers to ensure the right<br />

courses are offered.<br />

In times of recession we generally<br />

see an increase in people<br />

choosing to study.<br />

This is an opportunity to upskill<br />

Canterbury’s relatively<br />

poorly-educated workforce for<br />

our future economy, to generate<br />

more and better jobs, to increase<br />

productivity, and to raise living<br />

standards and wellbeing.<br />

We are supporting Ngāi Tahu’s<br />

development of an iwi skills hub<br />

that will create stronger pathways<br />

for young Māori into tertiary<br />

education and skilled jobs.<br />

Among other projects, we are<br />

working with education partners<br />

and mana whenua to increase<br />

aspiration and participation of<br />

students in low-decile schools in<br />

ESTUARY MATTERS<br />

Flying boats suggested for estuary<br />

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai<br />

Trust is a non-profit organisation<br />

formed to protect one of New<br />

Zealand’s most important coastal<br />

wetlands. Each week, board<br />

members will discuss matters<br />

regarding the estuary, its rich history<br />

and what makes it unique. This<br />

week Bill Simpson writes about<br />

how the estuary could have been a<br />

flying boat base<br />

THE BIRDS of the estuary are<br />

one of the city’s great treasures.<br />

But 72 years ago there could<br />

easily have been wings over the<br />

estuary of a very noisy kind.<br />

In post-war years, Christchurch<br />

wanted regular flights to<br />

Australia. In Auckland, the large<br />

four-engine Sandringham flying<br />

boats flew in from Sydney and<br />

landed in Waitemata <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

close to the city centre.<br />

The Sandringhams were<br />

originally war-time Sunderland<br />

flying boats converted to carry<br />

30 passengers. Eyes were cast on<br />

the Avon-Heathcote Estuary as<br />

a possible South Island base for<br />

these sea-planes.<br />

TEAL was upgrading its fleet<br />

and replacing the Sandringhams<br />

with Solents; these new planes<br />

could carry 45 passengers.<br />

Christchurch desperately<br />

wanted a transtasman aviation<br />

link. Harewood could be<br />

extended, but this would cost<br />

money for the extra land, or the<br />

estuary could be used as a flying<br />

boat base.<br />

It did not take too much expertise<br />

to quickly realise that the<br />

estuary was unsuitable as a port<br />

for these large sea-planes.<br />

Although some channels may<br />

have been deep enough, the<br />

estuary was generally too shallow<br />

and there were not enough<br />

multi-directional channels to<br />

cope with planes landing from<br />

the various angles dictated by<br />

variable winds.<br />

So the city council bought land<br />

to lengthen the Harewood strip.<br />

TEAL used DC4s and then DC6s<br />

to fly regular services to Sydney<br />

and Melbourne.<br />

The future lay with land-based<br />

planes because they could carry<br />

heavier payloads at faster speeds.<br />

MAJESTIC: Christchurch was keen for a transtasman aviation link to Sydney but<br />

complications arose when the estuary was deemed not deep enough for the<br />

Sandringham flying boats.<br />

For aviation buffs the prospect<br />

of flying boats landing close to<br />

the city would have been a dream<br />

come true; but for residents<br />

wanting to enjoy the tranquillity<br />

of estuary-side living, just<br />

the wings of terns, godwits and<br />

oystercatchers are quite enough,<br />

thank you.

Ford’s hot hatchback brings back the youth<br />

I DON’T like being referred to<br />

as old.<br />

Sure, as a pensioner, I’m aged<br />

in the senior demographic but<br />

I’d like to think I’m still relatively<br />

youthful, and when I’m presented<br />

with an exciting sports car to<br />

evaluate, my persona changes to<br />

someone much younger.<br />

Just like when I was presented<br />

with the keys to Ford’s Focus ST, a<br />

traditional hot hatchback charger<br />

that is an absolute screamer when<br />

allowed to breathe freely. I felt<br />

well in control of the beast, and<br />

such is its all-round adaptability<br />

it also doubles as a useful fourdoor,<br />

five-seater for when your<br />

grandkids need transporting, and<br />

I also think they would feel quite<br />

proud when seated in the stroppy<br />

sports car.<br />

At $59,900, the Focus ST sits<br />

competitively with other hot<br />

hatchback models yet it carries<br />

all of the practicality the Focus<br />

has as a series, it is easy to drive<br />

and doesn’t present any special<br />

challenges.<br />

The ST gets a 2.3-litre turbocharged,<br />

four-cylinder engine<br />

which gets about its job with<br />

strong engine sound and character.<br />

I’m not saying it is noisy, it’s<br />

not; the sound is well isolated but<br />

it is there to be heard, the engine<br />

is angry under load and it is a<br />

sound that encourages throttle<br />

use, it is pleasant to listen to.<br />

Ford claims healthy outputs of<br />

206kW and 420Nm, providing<br />

the impetus for a 6.4sec standstill<br />

to 100km/h time.<br />

As mentioned, you don’t need to<br />

drive the ST in performance mode<br />

all of the time, it is happy to dawdle<br />

traffic and during my weekday<br />

commute I was comfortable in it<br />

and felt right at ease, although you<br />

do get the impression it is keen to<br />

get some movement going.<br />

Power is directed through a<br />

paddle-shift seven-speed automatic<br />

transmission to the front<br />

wheels. Shifts are smooth and the<br />

ratios are also structured to meet<br />

the demands of fuel-conscious<br />

buyers.<br />

Ford claims an 8.6l/100km<br />

combined cycle fuel usage average<br />

for the ST. The trip computer<br />

was showing around 10l/100km<br />

when I took the car back to the<br />

dealership. It will also return a<br />

5.4l/100km instantaneous reading<br />

at 100km/h (engine speed<br />

1500rpm), which means you can<br />

have some fun without scoffing<br />

vast amounts of fuel.<br />

I took the test car on a Mid-<br />

Canterbury loop, they are perfect<br />

roads for a performance car.<br />

English Fords have generally been<br />

regarded as having supple chassis<br />

balance and the ST doesn’t disappoint,<br />

it simply dances through<br />

the suspension. It also rockets<br />

between corners with a powerful<br />

surge and swift retardation,<br />

thanks to a performance brake<br />

package.<br />

Grippy Michelin Sport tyres<br />

(235/35 x 19in) turn in precisely<br />

with little steering effort but solid<br />

steering feedback. Gravitational<br />

changes don’t load the tyres, nor<br />

does it affect the way the suspension<br />

operates in a corner; if<br />

uneven surfaces are encountered<br />

there is composure and certainty<br />

within the steering process.<br />

The ST stands out with its bold<br />

FORD FOCUS ST:<br />

Fantastic red<br />

paintwork and big<br />

rear spoiler stand<br />

out and hints at a<br />

performance package.<br />

wheels, body kit and spoiler,<br />

while on the inside Recaro seats<br />

not only support the driver<br />

around the mid-riff, but they are<br />

visual. The test car was painted<br />

bright red, described by Ford as<br />

fantastic red, red ST logos embossed<br />

on the front seats complement<br />

the exterior colour.<br />

The Focus ST is a fun package,<br />

yet has practicality on its side. It<br />

comes extensively equipped with<br />

all of the items you’d expect today<br />

for comfort and convenience, and<br />

safety.<br />
