THE PUBLIC will be able to

help track how New Brighton’s

coastline is changing over time.

Camera cradles have been

installed at New Brighton Pier to

encourage people to take part in

the CoastSnap community science

project.

CoastSnap relies on the public

taking photos at the same

locations at different times and

sending them to the city council.

This will help determine how

coastlines are changing over time

due to human activity and natural

processes such as storms, rising

sea levels and day-to-day changes

in the beach structure.

Camera cradles have also been

set up at Taylors Mistake to track

how its coastline is changing.

Said city council head of

planning and strategic transport

David Griffiths: “We have set up

camera cradles at Taylors Mistake

and on the New Brighton Pier

in the hope that visitors to those

locations will take part in the

project by taking a photo and

sharing it on the CoastSnap app,

via Twitter or Instagram, or by

emailing coastsnapchch@ccc.

Yacht club celebrates 100 years

PLEASANT POINT Yacht

Club celebrates its centennial

this weekend.

The club, now based in South

New Brighton Park, began in

1921 on the shores of the estuary

just behind where the South

New Brighton School is today.

The area was then known as

Pleasant Point Domain.

In 1929 the club moved across

to the western shore to an area

of mud flats at the mouth of the

Avon River that would become

known as Rat Island.

Over the years, the club built

up and improved the land

together with the club facilities

and held summer sailing and

racing programmes, teaching

hundreds of children and

adults how to sail. That was

until the first of the Canterbury

earthquakes on September 4,

2010 damaged the buildings

and land beyond repair.

In the 10 years since, it

found a new site and has built

a new yacht club (opened in

September 2019) in South New

Brighton Park – just a stone’s

throw from where it all began

in 1921.

The centennial celebrations

will provide a great opportunity

to relive the highs and lows of

the club’s 100 years, especially

the last 10 years of the rebuild.

The celebrations kick off with

a noggin ‘n natter on Friday

night, on Saturday, the Sullivan

Cup, which is the club’s main

open event, will be sailed, coupled

with another major trophy,

the Arch Lamb trophy for the

Sunburst class.

The races will feature multihulls,

trailer yachts and senior

and junior racing dingy classes

and are open to other yacht club

members.

Saturday’s sailing will be followed

by a celebration dinner.

On Sunday, the club will

run its Classic Yacht Race,

first sailed at the club’s 75th

celebrations. This will be

coupled with a display of classic

boats of all types owned by

members of the Classic Boat

Group of Canterbury. There will

be plenty for the public to see

on Saturday and Sunday.

For more information, phone

Ian Douglas on 027 4719 208.

Cancer Society shuttle service gets boost

THE CANCER Society’s

Canterbury West Coast division

shuttle service received a boost

recently with a combined

donation of almost $13,000 from

23 South Island-based Lions

clubs.

THe free shuttle service

transports patients staying

in the Cancer Society’s

accommodation, Daffodil

House in Merivale and Daffodil

Lodge in Riccarton, to and from

radiation and chemotherapy

appointments at Christchurch

Hospital.

Janice Porter-Hoare,

fundraising and events manager

for the Cancer Society’s CWC

division, said that the Lions

Clubs’ significant donation was

a huge help towards funding the

$65,000 required to operate the

shuttle each year.

“The shuttle currently operates

from 7.30am until 9pm Monday

to Friday, which translates to

approximately 16,000 individual

patient trips. Given that the

patients we are providing our

service for, come from all over

the South Island it is fabulous

to see local Lions Clubs from a

variety of regions supporting

this Christchurch-based service,”

Porter-Hoare said.

Porter-Hoare acknowledged

that this was the fourth

consecutive year that the Lions

Clubs had donated to the shuttle

service.

“The late John Cramond from

Motueka organised the first

donation in 2017 after having

used the shuttle service himself

while having cancer treatment

in Christchurch,” Porter-Hoare

said.

“Sadly John passed away last

year, but his legacy lives on in

this donation, which is extremely

important to us given that we

anticipate the demand for the

shuttle service to grow even

further during 2021.”

Lions Club representative

Christine Stewart, 1st Vice

District Governor for District

202J, visited Daffodil House to

see the shuttle service in action

and accepted a certificate of

thanks from the Cancer Society

on behalf of the contributing

Lions Clubs.

In addition to providing

accommodation and transport

services, the Cancer Society

provides education and support

services for cancer patients and

their families, as well as coordinating

and funding cancer

research.

Hundreds of Cantabrians took advantage of a sizzling hot

day at New Brighton beach last Saturday to learn how to

fly a kite. Kites of all shapes and sizes took to the air during

the annual city council event. Other activities included a

sandcastle building competition, beach sports with Sport

Canterbury and free samples of Weis icecream.

I Love Brighton

WONDERLAND: Amusements such as the helter-skelter and the dragon

were popular with children at a New Brighton park more than 100 years

ago.

Historic gardens

were once a

hive of activity

All are invited to the 11th annual I

Love Brighton Waitangi day Monday.

Thousands of people are expected

to descend on Thomson Park on the

Monday of Waitangi Weekend for the ‘I

Brighton’ event. This will be the 11th

annual event, which started in 2011 as

a way of raising community spirits after

the earthquakes but has grown each year

and become a focal point for locals to

celebrate their community and for local

groups to showcase themselves.

The event is packed full of activities for

all ages including bouncy castles, water

walkers, face painting, food stalls, pony

rides, sports activities, circus skills, funky

bikes, a pre-school zone, market stalls and

a Live Music stage.

The event is also a recognition of the

significance of Waitangi Day and begins

this year with the Rawhiti School Kapa

Haka group. Other performers this year

include Music with Michal, the African

Drummers, Almost Johnny, Lorne Joblin

IN THE 1880s, John Bligh

created a Wonderland out

of 36 acres of sandhills.

Bligh’s Gardens were established

at an area on the

Avon River below Withell’s

Island and on Evans Ave.

They were established as

pleasure grounds by Bligh,

who died in 1996. John was

a cook, restaurant owner

and temperance hotel

keeper.

His hotel was near the

Salvation Army citadel

site in town. He also

owned a large property at

Blighs Rd.

When he decided to

create the gardens at New

Brighton, he brought

plants and soil down the

Avon in small craft. Conifers

were planted, garden

walks laid out, a playing

field formed, and a house

was built.

Sailing clubs, families

and business groups picnicked

at Bligh’s Gardens,

while conservationists

enthused about how Bligh

had made the desert “blossom

as the rose.”

It is still held in history

books as an amazing feat.

Behind the large house was

a vinery laden with grapes,

a fernery and greenhouses.

In 1885 picnic parties

were encouraged to camp

at Bligh’s Gardens where

“Mr Bligh’s family will

hospitably provide hot

water.”

Dinners and teas were

provided. The visitors

would come by boat up the

Avon to the landing place,

or people could travel by

the horse-drawn tram,

there and back for one shilling.

In 1890, Queen Victoria’s

birthday was celebrated by

400 people with archery

and gun firing.

After an exhibition in

1906, some of the amusements

were transferred to

Blighs Gardens including

a helter-skelter. The name

was changed to Wonderland.

Sadly the house was

destroyed by fire in 1909,

and after a succession of

owners after Bligh’s death,

the Wonderland ceased to

exist.

The land behind the old

croquet club is still called

Bligh’s Gardens, and at the

museum, there is a whole

folder on this place.

Waitaingi day event

Most of the activities are free, apart

from a few which require a $2 coin, to

help cover the cost of the activity. The

event runs from 11:00am until 3:00pm,

and parking is either on the streets, or on

the Thomson Park Playing Fields. Local

businesses have donated prizes that can

be won on the day and via the social

media pages and He Puna Taimoana, New

to be given to the many volunteers who

“For 10 years people have been coming

activities and having a lot of fun on the

day! However, our vision is that the day

doesn’t end there, but locals connect

with local groups and get involved all

year around. Over 30 community groups

are involved on the day including youth

programmes, sports groups, interest

groups, playgroups, cultural groups,

emergency services, arts groups and

more. Connection is a large part of

wellbeing, and if more people are

connected to their community after this

day, then all the hard work has been

worth it!” says James Ridpath, Manager

Perfect job for an interest in nature

Dean Pendrigh is the

collections curator for

the water garden, azalea

garden and the pinetum in

the Botanic Gardens and

has been working there for

the past 35 years. He talks

to Ella Somers

SKILLED: Dean Pendrigh tends to the plants in the Botanic Gardens. He has always had

an interest in nature.

A PASSION for nature led Dean

Pendrigh to pursue a botanical

career immediately after high

school and he started his

four-year apprenticeship at the

Botanic Gardens in 1986.

His apprenticeship included a

brief scholarship to Melbourne,

on his return he continued working

at the gardens.

Pendrigh said he has “always

had an interest in nature” but it

wasn’t until high school when his

uncle introduced him to orchids

that “really got me interested in

plants and native plants as well.”

He enjoys botanical work

because every season is different

and “something will be far better

one year and not the other,” he

said.

“I like the biogeography and

learning about where plants

come from and how plants react

to other plants and in different

countries.”

As well as maintaining the

collections and keeping careful

plant records, a large part of Pendrigh’s

job includes tasks such as

weeding, pruning, and cutting

hedges.

Watering takes up a lot of time

as well because “a lot of my areas

don’t have any actual automated

irrigation so we do it by hand,”

he said.

Due to the names of plants

changing frequently, updating

and labelling records is a

continual project and can be

frustrating.

“You get to know the name of

a plant and then a botanist will

change it,” Pendrigh said.

“Sometimes you’ll change a

label and then they’ll change it

back to the original name.”

Pendrigh said that while he

gets a lot of good comments

from people who come through

the garden, “a lot of people

don’t realise how much work is

involved,” he said.

In comparison to other trades

as well, it’s not recognised as

much as it should be.

“There is a lot of knowledge

that you need to know, and it

takes a long time to build up that

knowledge, especially that plant

knowledge,” he said.

“The names of plants you have

to learn as well, it’s like learning

another language.”

Pendrigh’s passion for

“everything botanical” has

inspired him to travel to

places across the world where

interesting flora lives, including

Africa.

“They’ve got a very diverse

flora,” he said.

“It increased my interest in

plants even more seeing them in

their natural habitat.”

He doesn’t have a favourite

plant but if he had to name his

favourite plant group, it would be

plants from the southern hemisphere,

New Zealand, Australia,

and South Africa in particular.

“There’s some interesting links

between the floras of those countries,”

Pendrigh said.

“And because I’ve seen them in

the wild, you appreciate them a

lot more.”

One of the most interesting

visitors that the Botanic Gardens

has had in Pendrigh’s time was

a visit from the Dalai Lama in

1992.

“He planted a himalayan pine

tree in my area,” Pendrigh said.

Unfortunately, the tree was

stolen a week after it was planted

and neither the thief nor the

Dalai Lama’s tree were ever

found.

The tree that now grows where

the Dalai Lama’s one used to be

“is one that I actually planted,”

Pendrigh said.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Said Cr MacDonald: “In

the current environment it’s

clear business as usual is not

appropriate and the council

needs to look at how we enable

this 12-month rates increase

the economic confidence of our

city.”

Ms Dalziel said the las thing the council’s budget, which is
