Dyers Pass Rd upgrade work

frustrates peninsula residents

• By Samantha Mythen

BANKS PENINSULA residents

want better communication from

the city council about Dyers Pass

Rd safety upgrades.

The road has been reduced to a

single lane during the day and is

closed between 7pm and 6am as

road works occur, estimated to

finish in June.

Those who live and work in

Governors Bay are frustrated with

irregular communication from the

council about what is happening.

Resident, John Bannock said:

“The council engagement with the

community has been woeful and

almost non-existent.”

Reuben Miller, who also lives

in Governors Bay, said the roadworks

have added an extra 20

minutes to his journey to work in

Christchurch.

Sue Carter has lived in

Governors Bay for more than 10

years. She works near the airport,

starting at 5am and has to leave

much earlier, detouring through

Lyttelton Tunnel with Dyers Pass

Rd closed in the early morning

hours.

Said Governors Bay Harbour

House owner Nic Graham:

“Covid and now these road

works are wreaking havoc on the

community-focused cafe.’’

REDCLIFFS residents have

concerns an upgrade to the

community’s medical centre will

pose a danger to cyclists and

others who the use the shared

Coastal Pathway.

The Redcliffs Residents Association

is now calling on the city

council to notify the resource

consent needed for the development

on Main Rd, allowing the

public to provide feedback.

Rebuilding

the medical

centre on the

new site will

mean vehicle

access into the

building will

have to cross

the popular

Coastal Pathway.

Redcliffs

Residents Association secretary

Pat McIntosh said: “We have

major concerns for the safety

of those who use the pathway,

including cyclists and children.

“It would break the flow of the

path which was intended to be

an unbroken route from town

through to Sumner.”

Said Coastal Pathway Group

chairman Hanno Sander: “As

stewards of the Coastal Pathway,

we want to work with the community

to ensure safety for pathway

users. Currently the vision

for the pathway is a continuous

6.5km connection between communities.

“We are concerned that a busy

access point would split that

connection.”

Only one of the shops would

remain if the medical centre was

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

rebuilt in that area, and planting

and established flower gardens

would likely have to be removed.

“The area is part of the economic

centre of the village and

we are reluctant to close another

commercial venue,” McIntosh

said.

“The village is quite vulnerable

and we do not want to threaten

the economic viability.”

The residents’ association has

asked the community board to

look at the project and to provide

advice on whether it should be

approved.

McIntosh spoke to a planner

involved in the project last

month who said they were

looking into the safety and traffic

aspects of it.

Linwood-Heathcote-Central

Community Board chairwoman

Alexandra Davids confirmed

the plans were still being developed.

She said once that occurred,

stakeholders would be approached

for feedback.

McIntosh said: “We do not

want the medical centre to leave

the village, it is important to the

community.”

“But it would be ideal if the

medical centre could be built

on its own original site and if

we could facilitate this for them.

There would be good access, it

would still be close to the centre

of the village without interfering

with the Coastal Pathway.”

The medical centre is expected

to move from 180 Main Rd and

rebuild at 93-95 in the village

centre.

It is the perfect site for the

medical centre as they are wanting

to consolidate their resources

into one building, including a

pharmacy.

The owner of the medical

centre was unavailable for

comment.

THE PROPOSED streamlining

of library hours could result in

the closure of the service desk at

Lyttelton Library.

The action has been suggested

as part of cost-saving measures

recommended in the city council’s

10-year draft budget.

This comes at the same time as

a recommendation to close the

service desk in Akaroa.

The closest service desk for

those residents would be Halswell,

which is over an hour away by car.

City council chief executive

Dawn Baxendale said the Lyttelton

service desk has “minimal

transactions.” It was the reasoning

behind the proposed closure.

She said more residents were

choosing to use online or phone

services to make their payments

to the council.

The library services would still

continue.

For those who do use the Lyttelton

service desk the next closest

would be at Eastgate Shopping

Centre.

Lyttelton resident Al Park often

uses the service desk, combining

its use with trips to the library,

saving time and convenience.

“It is cool to be able to

walk into the library and

let them know about any

little community issues,”

he said.

“It is a way to inform

the council of things

they need to be doing

otherwise nothing seems

to happen.”

Park also pays his rates there.

Another Lyttelton resident,

Wendy Everingham, suggested

the role go back to the Lyttelton

Information Centre as a “natural

progression.”

“We know our place best

and I envisage in the future

the role will mostly be practical

things like giving out

keys for the pool or other

council facilities plus local

information.”

Public consultation on

the draft Long Term Plan

will begin on March 12 and

continue until April 18.

Council making adjustments

to improve traffic flow

• From page 1

People say in spite of the

impact the works are having

on the community, businesses

were not consulted, there was

no community meeting to

discuss the works and people

were only informed of the road

works via road signage and

city council updates on their

website.

Said Carter: “We didn’t

get any communication in

the letter box. Usually when

roadworks occur, we’d see

physical communication on

what is happening with a

number to call if you need

advice.”

Said Miller: “There has been

a lack of clarity about what

they are actually doing.”

There is now an email

newsletter providing updates,

but there have still been issues

where it has appeared the road

has closed earlier than usual.

City council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis, said they are

working with the contractors

to resolve those issues.

The city council has received

numerous feedback on the

road works and they are

trying to make adjustments to

improve safety and traffic flow

where possible.

One positive change, Bannock

said, were the staffing

of traffic lights during the

morning and evenings for

week drivers.

Yet residents remain puzzled

on whether the roadworks

will solve usage problems on

the road, such as competition

for space between cars and

cyclists, and boy racers.

Said Ellis: “We acknowledge

the work will not fix all issues

on the road as there will still be

limited road space for cyclists

and drivers to share.

“The work will widen the

road slightly and the drainage

channel has been designed so

that a cyclist or driver could

drop a wheel into the channel

safely.”

However, drains now in

place are already filling up with

rocks and debris.

Said Miller: “I would like to

see the council riding in the

rock-filled drainage gutters.”

In 2018, Christchurch

communities were asked to

provide feedback on issues

with the road.

A majority of submissions

mentioned concerns about

boy racers. However, residents

do not understand how the

new guard rails will solve this

issue.

THE BANKS Peninsula

Community Board will meet

with the Urumau Reserve

Management Committee within

the next two weeks over criticism

of its management practices.

Said community board chairwoman

Tori

Peden: “We

have called

a meeting to figure

out the best

way forward.”

It comes after

Nick Jackman,

representing the

residents of Foster

Tce shared their frustrations

at the abilities of the Urumau

Reserve Management Committee

to manage the reserve at a

community board meeting on

Monday.

Jackman told the meeting

residents have no confidence in

the committee to manage the fire

risk in the area.

“They are not following the

best practice Scion guidelines for

fire risk management,” he said.

The Urumau Reserve Development

Plan states a fire buffer

must be created. The residents

believe this has not been

addressed and instead a small

native border has been created.

Jackman said the committee

is neither pruning nor removing

dead and dry material, leaving

“fuel for future fires.”

Jackman has had concerns

over the management of the

reserve for several years. He

has slowly seen the build up of

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

dry material increasing the fire

risk, and after the Cass Bay fire

in February, he finally thought

enough is enough.

The residents support the

efforts to preserve and enhance

native flora and fauna but feel

as if the different stakeholder’s

interests are not being balanced.

Jackman told the meeting conflict

over management of fire risk

is just the tip of the iceberg.

Wednesday March 3 2021 Bay Harbour News

Said Jackman: “The committee

has taken an undemocratic

approach to dealing with our

concerns.”

Jackman told Bay Harbour

News the reserve management

committee had told residents

what they were doing was going

to make it safer ‘but it isn’t.’

“It is gas lighting,’’ he said.

Jackman said he took

residents’ concerns to the

community board to start a

dialogue.

He wants the board to hold the

committee to account and for a

new management structure to be

put in place.

“It’s an instance where the

board needs to take a hand on

approach,’’ he said.

Jackman suggested a fire risk

management professional, such

as from Fire and Emergency NZ,

join the committee.

“All stakeholders need to be

recognised and the different

interests in the reserve need to be

balanced,” he said.

He told Bay Harbour News:

“We are living by a fire hazard

right on our doorsteps and they

are treating it as if we are not

important.”

The management committee

was approached by Bay Harbour

News for comment but did not

respond before deadline.

Progress under way for track

upgrade after three years

• By Samantha Mythen

WORK IS happening behind the

scenes on mountain bike track

upgrades in Urumau Reserve.

Lyttelton Mountain Bike

Club member Joshua Merriam,

asked the Banks Peninsula

Community Board at its

meeting on Monday to approve

the track upgrades at the

reserve’s entrance. The track is a

component of the 2018 Urumau

Development Plan.

He presented a petition to

the board with more than 100

signatures during the meeting.

Community board

chairwoman Tori Peden said

the board is waiting for a final

report from city council regional

parks manager Paul Devlin as

there is now funding available

for improvements on the track.

Said Mt Herbert subdivision

board member Scott Winter:

“Everyone is in agreement that

this should be approved.”

Merriam said the community

board’s response was frustrating

as it has been the same response

they have been receiving for

several years.

“I’ll give them the benefit of

the doubt and trust that movement

is actually happening in

the background,” Merriam said.

The campaign began in

August 2018 after the board

approved the development plan,

including the entrance track.

However, no progress has

been made since then to actually

approve the access track into

the reserve. Instead the track

is still classified as a “proposed

track,” in spite of being used

by both mountain bikers and

walkers alike to access the track.

“It’s roadblock terminology,”

said Merriam.

Inaction from discussions

with the Urumau Reserve Management

Committee, prompted

Merriam to take this campaign

A STEP

Lyttelton

Mountain

Bike Club is

hoping the

entrance track

Reserve will

to the board.

Approving the track would

allow for increased engagement

with the reserve and it

would complete the entrance

connection from Foster Tce to the

Urumau traverse track, allowing

for appreciation of the native

planting through which the area

it traverses, Merriam said.

Grower ordered

to repay wages

ASPARAGUS grower

Christopher Gray has been

fined for under-paying exploited

workers.

The Employment Relations

Authority set the penalty for the

owner of Motukarara Asparagus

at $26,000, after ordering in October

that he repay 13 staff about

$54,000.

Many of the workers were from

Fiji and were vulnerable because

they didn’t know their entitlements,

and English was their

second language.

Workers were paid a piece

rate based on the amount of

asparagus that they picked, and

weren’t paid minimum wages and

holiday entitlements.

It was found some of the

employee’s wages were being

calculated based on how much

asparagus they picked at $2.50 a

kilogram.

According to the ERA, there

are four different types of breaches

by Gray.

A failure to pay minimum wage

for 12 employees, failure to obtain

consent for deductions from

wages for 11 employees, failure to

provide for public holidays and

failure to keep compliant holiday

and leave records.

The ERA found pay was being

deducted for things such as

airfares and accommodation

without the workers’ consent.

Special place for flowers presented

in recognition of opera performance

MEMORIES: Raemon Greenwood’s passion for opera provides

an unbreakable bond with her parents Beverley and Earl Stick,

who were killed on a bus crushed by a collapsing building on

February 22, 2011.

• By Chris Barclay

WHEN RAEMON Greenwood

was presented with flowers in

recognition of her contribution

to an operatic company’s

inaugural production, she

already had the perfect place to

put them on display.

Rather than keep them in her

Redcliffs home, she carried them

north of the city last Monday, to

the resting place of her parents

Earl and Beverley Stick.

While the city paused at

12.51pm to remember the

10th anniversary of the deadly

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

Greenwood was at rural Balcairn

inland from Leithfield Beach.

“I’d been given a really beautiful

floral arrangement from the

Dame Malvina Major Foundation.

I placed it on my parents

grave, it was appropriate because

that’s how much they loved opera,”

she said.

In a perfect world Earl and

Beverley would have sat in one

of the three rows either side of

the stage at The Great Hall of

The Arts Centre when To Toi

Opera debuted with their adaptation

of Puccini’s Suor Angelica

& Elegies.

Tragically they were passengers

on the No 3 bus which was

crushed by a collapsing building

on Colombo St as the couple

headed to Christchurch Hospital,

where Earl was undergoing cancer

treatment.

“They loved opera and classical

music. In the Canterbury

Opera days we were all on the

POIGNANT: Raemon

in Toi Toi Opera’s

production of Puccini’s

Suor Angelica &

Elegies.

friends committee,” Greenwood

explained.

“We used to do the catering,

dad would help out with the

props.”

So Toi Toi’s New Zealandthemed

take on an opera inspired

by World War 1 and first staged

in 1918 was particularly poignant

for Greenwood, who assumed

the role of The Abbess.

“Mum would have been here.

My niece’s wedding is at Easter

and mum would have been here,”

she said.

A ticketed rehearsal was held

on February 18, four shows

followed culminating with the

finale on February 21.

Fortunately the lastminute

relaxing of Covid-19

restrictions in Auckland enabled

Greenwood’s out of town

family members to witness

her performance, the visitors

including a 91-year-old aunt.

“Everyone got down and they

loved it,” she said.

“It was so up close and intimate,

everybody was raving

about it. We had a waitlist for the

last night.

“Someone I volunteer with,

it was the first opera she’d been

to, she said it was just stunning.

We had a lot of new people that

hadn’t been to opera, that’s a

good thing.”

Greenwood hosted a family

dinner for 29 later on anniversary

day, a positive occasion in

spite of the circumstances.

“The slides came out and we

went through all the lovely old

memories,” she said.

“There was this stunning

photo of my mother, in her late

teens, skating up Porters Pass way.”

Greenwood estimated it took

12 months to come to terms with

losing her loved ones, the pair

of devoted explorers, coming to

grief so close to home.

“In a year I flipped my grief

to gratitude. I know a lot of

people have found it very hard

losing their loved ones . . . I had

to be thankful for everything,

thankful that I’d had parents for

50 years.”

•Buoyed by the success

of Suor Angelica & Elegies,

Toi Toi Opera’s creative

director Katherine Doig

said their next, as yet

unspecified, production

was planned for December

or January.

Bid to recreate images from the past

• By Samantha Mythen

A LYTTELTON man has taken

part in a nostalgic social media

trend seen around the world,

recreating a photo from his

childhood.

He hopes others will do the

same and also share on their

social media.

Standing outside Lyttelton

Primary school, Jordan Paulsen

posed to recreate a photo taken

of himself 25 years earlier,

outside what was then Lyttelton

Main school.

This generated many positive

comments and interest after

Paulsen posted the photos to a

Lyttelton community group on

Facebook.

Paulsen said: “This is a good

way for social media to be used

for the positive, bringing a smile

to people who see the photo,

them maybe recognising the

person or the place.”

He was inspired to try this

idea after his mother had given

him several photo albums.

After digging around, he had

found photos of old landmarks

of his youth, including the photo

taken outside Lyttelton Primary

School.

“I still have a strong bond to

the school and its landscape.

When I walk through the

grounds today, I have many

memories,” he said.

THEN AND NOW: Jordan Paulsen stands outside Lyttelton

Primary School in 1995 and 2021.

“This is a cool way to recreate

the fun you had as a child,

looking at where it started versus

how it’s going now.”

Paulsen was born and bred in

Lyttelton in 1989. In fact he is

the fifth generation of his family

to have lived there.

He grew up in the village,

leaving for Sydney when he was

18 where he lived for 10 years.

He moved back to Lyttelton at

the beginning of 2020.

Paulsen said: “Although

time passes, your heart always

remains in the spot where you

grew up with friends and family.

My emotional and spiritual

connection with Lyttelton has

always been there.”

Most of his family still live in

Lyttelton and he still has friends

from his days at Lyttelton Main

School.

Paulsen hopes that this may

inspire other locals to recreate

images from their childhood

too, taking valuable time to

reflect on how things have

changed.

“I’m sure that there are many

locals old and new who could

recreate images too,’’ he said.

now’ recreated photos

OUR PEOPLE – SIMON THOMAS

Rockanteur settles into harbour scene

Musician Simon

Thomas has drifted

around the world

writing songs for

much of his life until

Covid-19 put a halt

to his travels and he

found himself settled

in Corsair Bay. He talks

to Samantha Mythen

Tell me about yourself.

I was born in Sydney and I got

out of there as soon as I could

at 20. I didn’t like the big city. I

travelled around for 3-4 years.

I spent a couple of years in Asia

and in Europe with a Kombi van,

playing music all over the place

and selling Indian clothes at

festivals.

I later married a German girl

and we came back to Australia to

have a family. We bought a piece

of land out in the wilderness

in northern NSW, inland from

Byron Bay at a Buddhist retreat

centre. I raised my kids In the

Buddhist community and then

in 2014, my youngest left home.

I’d already split up with his mum

by then, so then I went back to

drifting around the world again.

And so I’ve more or less had

no fixed address since then. I

spent a lot of time in Bhutan,

India, Nepal, and Guatemala. I

do volunteer work, play music,

write stories, whatever else takes

my fancy.

This was until Covid-19 hit. I

was in Kathmandu as the screws

started to tighten in March last

year and I thought it would all

blow over by June. But then

I suddenly realised as all the

borders were closing and all of

the airlines were shutting down,

I’d have to get out.

So I made a dash. I’ve been

with my partner Kim for two

years. She has a lovely house in

Corsair Bay. It seemed like the

best place to go and it still seems

like a very good place to be in

the pandemic. When I got onto

the plane, the lockdown hadn’t

been announced and then when

I got off the plane, they told me

everyone was self-isolating, not

just me. We did a big shop and

then hunkered down in Corsair.

And now I’m here until further

notice.

Had you been in NZ much

before now?

No, I had brought my kids

over for holidays twice and then

I spent a few months in Corsair

Bay in 2019 and 2020, so I’m

pretty new here.

After being, as you said,

adrift for so long, how is it

being in one place?

It’s fine, I don’t really get

homesick. Although I have two

grandsons and I can’t see them

at the moment which is the only

thing. I write and play my music

and I have a lovely little room

overlooking the bay. I don’t think

very much about what I haven’t

got, it’s quite a rich existence

already.

ARTISTIC: Simon

Thomas tells stories

through music.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

So you’re a musician, what

drew you to this creative scene?

I first of all played violin when

I was a kid and I used to do

lessons before school. I often

did not do as I was told and so

I never held my hand in the

correct position. One day my

teacher got so angry at me, she

took the belt off her gown and

tied my hand to the back of the

violin.

This turned me off the violin

and I then got started on the

guitar. When my kids were

growing up, I couldn’t really

make a living in the bush from

music, so I sold solar panels and

did solar installations. Now I’m

a singer-songwriter. Sometimes I

play with a band or a duo.

What’s your why for your

music?

It’s not really a why, you just

have to do it. If you don’t play for

a few days then you get this kind

of feeling inside that you really

need to play. There’s a certain

satisfaction to delivering a song

and there’s delivering for your

own satisfaction and then there’s

the communication with the

audience. There’s this drive to be

able to play something that you

hear in your head or that you’ve

heard on the radio. The ideas for

my songs just come up and then

they bounce around me inside

and I have to get them out one

way or another.

What is your preferred style

of music?

Mainly rock, folk and blues.

I find wood, strings and steel

resonate in my heart. To a pretty

big extent this comes from

what you grow up with. Most

people gravitate towards what

they experienced as a teenager I

think.

So when you were a teenager,

what inspired your music taste?

Bowie is probably the biggest.

Queen, Led Zeppelin.

You’ve recently written an

album of songs for children

based around Buddhism. What

draws you to Buddhism?

The first interest I had was

through Jungian psychology

and he would refer to some

Buddhism principals. What he

was saying resonated with me

as being authentic. The way that

I’ve since learned Buddhism is

you tend to study and practice as

two wings of the bird and then

you fly. So if you’re practising

those in a certain balance, you

find its incredibly enriching in

your life. I’ve found a lot of joy

in my life that wouldn’t be there

otherwise.

You call yourself a

rockanteur, what does that

mean to you?

Well a raconteur is a theatrical

storyteller. So a rockanteur is a

theatrical storyteller who does it

through rock music.

What is your favourite part of

performing live?

The connection with the

audience is what it is all about.

When you deliver a song and

there’s an emotional connection

that happens between the people

and they understand not just the

words but the feeling.

You mentioned Kathmandu,

tell me about your time there?

The first time I visited was in

1989, and the last seven years,

I’ve been spending between

three and five months living in

different parts of Kathmandu

NO FIXED ABODE: Thomas has spent much of his life travelling. He has been to places

such as Cuba and Kathmandu.

writing and playing music. It’s a

very, very old place and there’s

still a sense of magic that is

imbued into the place. There are

buildings that have been there

for literally thousands of years

and people have lived generation

after generation in the same

place. And of course, there is the

Himalayas.

There’s an interesting bar

owner that I work with there,

doing gigs for him once or twice

a week. His name is Ram and his

bar is called Ramsterdam.

What do you think of the

Christchurch music scene?

I particularly know Banks

Peninsula and Lyttelton and it’s

great, I’m very impressed. I think

Lyttelton is a centre for artistic

activity and there are quite a few

really accomplished musicians

there.

How does Lyttelton compare

with Ramsterdam?

Wunderbar and Ramsterdam

have quite a bit in common,

they’re both quite crazy. It’s a

great scene here, I’ve loved the

festivals – the Banks Peninsula

Festival and Nostalgia. Deva

Mahal at the latter was great, a

huge voice.

Do you have a favourite

subject to write about for your

songs?

My latest album, Blue

Lion, was unusual as it was

commissioned by a Buddhist

school in Singapore. Each one

of the songs were supposed to fit

into a particular niche in their

curriculum, such as traditional

Buddhist teachings like refuge

prayer and Manjushri, a mantra

– making these relevant to

the children. Then there was

transitions during the day like

lining up, good mornings and

meal times. Then specific thing

they study like harmony, changes

and community.

Usually I see a situation or

get a feeling and think I’d like

to put it in to a song. Another

of my album’s is called Love

Me Tinder. I wanted to write

a song about internet dating

as I thought it would be fun. I

particularly like songs that are a

little bit funny.

You’ve spoken out about

with other Banks Peninsula

residents recently about

concerns about fire risks, why is

this issue important to you?

For about 10 years I was a

member of the Australian bush

fire brigade and we went to many

fires and also we had two big

fires on the property that I lived

on. These fires would sometimes

last a week to 10 days. Right

across the road from our place in

Corsair are these big eucalyptus

trees which can be so volatile in

heat and fire.

Do you have aany plans for

POTENTIAL: The newly-renovated Loons building will provide for

performance venues and much more.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Exciting future for

history-rich Loons

Loon’s event manager Jonnie

Emery reflects on Lyttelton’s

iconic building, where it’s

been and what it is today

WITH RENOVATIONS completed

in December last year, the Loons has

transformed into a state-of-the-art live

music and performance venue.

The new two-storey premises at 16

Canterbury St, has undergone major

remodelling after the building was

significantly damaged in the Christchurch

earthquakes.

With overwhelming support from the

local community and the securing of

funding from both community funding

and local sponsorship, the 10-year project

has resulted in a dedicated live music and

performance venue upstairs and bar complete

with beer garden downstairs.

The Loons caters for live music, theatre,

arts, and private venue space for Lyttelton

and the wider Canterbury area.

The building itself has been an integral

and well-known part of the Lyttelton

community for more than a century. Built

in 1905, it housed a range of commercial

premises through to 1944 including a

grocery shop and the Loons garage.

In 1944, the building was purchased by

three watersiders and around that time

the premises was converted to become the

Waterside Workers Social

Club known locally

as ‘The Loons’.

1951 is a significant

year in New Zealand

history. Lyttelton and

its port, along with

others throughout

the country, were

involved in the largest

industrial dispute ever

seen in New Zealand

which lasted for 151

days. Having endured

compulsory overtime

and dangerous working

conditions, watersiders

finally put in an

overtime ban seeking

better conditions and

an end to compulsory

overtime. The government declared a state

of emergency on February 21, 1951.

‘Draconian emergency regulations

imposed rigid censorship, gave police

sweeping powers of search and arrest

and made it an offence for citizens to

assist strikers – even giving food to their

children was outlawed’.

The Waterside Workers Social Club

became the hub of support for the lockedout

workers and their families in Lyttelton

including the distribution of food illegally

donated by people sympathetic to their

cause. The government of the day deregistered

the Waterside Workers Union and

sought to seize its assets. The club became

a different entity – the Lyttelton Working

Mens Club and thus some assets, including

the building itself, were saved.

Thea Mickell, treasurer of The Loons

Club Incorporated, said it is an exciting

new chapter for the building which is so

rich in history.

“It was important to honour and respect

the history of this local institution while

recognizing its new potential and future.

Our goal is to encourage and foster

performing arts, both local and touring

and become the preferred live music and

performance venue in Christchurch.”

WINE

• By Mark Henderson

I’VE HAD A soft spot for

Hawke’s Bay syrah since

stumbling upon the Stonecroft

cellar door some 30 years ago

and discovering the 1989 syrah:

the inception wine of our

modern syrah category in New

Zealand.

Thirty vintages later, a combination

of vine age, new clonal

material and a wealth of experience

garnered by the winemakers

is seeing some thrilling

offerings.

The vintage of 2018 was warm,

yet not totally trouble-free, but

these labels have risen to the

occasion with wines of depth,

interest and potential.

2018 Smith & Sheth Cru

Heretaunga syrah

Price: $40

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Fragrant nose, dusty, riverstones,

white pepper,earth/forest

floor, red fruits.

A cool feel, fresh and

vibrant, ripe yet not over-sweet,

with deceptive tannins that build

up.

Garners a silkiness as it opens;

I could plump for northern

Rhone here.

Complex, interesting, lovely

balance, drinking superbly, yet

potential too. Elegant.

2018 Smith & Sheth Cru

Omahu syrah

Price: $60

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Subtle yet refined nose with

earthy touches and a herbal

influence, gathering florality as it

grows perceptibly. Fruit richness

(blackberry, boysenberry,

raspberry) along with spices,

earthiness and powerful tannins,

crisp, fresh, the fruit hanging in

the mouth.

For now, this is wound up and

tightly structured and all about

the potential.

Chewiness as the tannins

some age.

The Children’s Train

by Viola Ardone

Based on true events, a heartbreaking story of love, family,

hope, and survival set in post-World War II Italy—written with

the heart of Orphan Train and Before We Were Yours—about

poor children from the south sent to live with families in the

north to survive deprivation and the harsh winters. Though

Mussolini and the fascists have been defeated, the war has

devastated Italy, especially the south. Seven-year-old Amerigo lives

with his mother Antonietta in Naples, surviving on odd jobs and his

wits like the rest of the poor in his neighborhood. But one day, Amerigo

learns that a train will take him away from the rubble-strewn streets of

the city to spend the winter with a family in the north, where he will be

safe and have warm clothes and food to eat. Together with thousands of

other southern children, Amerigo will cross the entire peninsula to a new

life. Through his curious, innocent eyes, we see a nation rising from the

ashes of war, reborn. As he comes to enjoy his new surroundings and

the possibilities for a better future, Amerigo will make the heartbreaking

choice to leave his mother and become a member of his adoptive family.

Amerigo’s journey is a moving story of memory, indelible bonds, artistry,

and self-exploration, and a soaring examination of what family can truly

mean. Ultimately Amerigo comes to understand that sometimes we must

give up everything, even a mother’s love, to find our destiny.

The Rose Code

by Kate Quinn

1940, Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire. Three very different women are

recruited to the mysterious Bletchley Park, where the best minds in Britain train

to break German military codes. Vivacious debutante Osla has the dashing

Prince Philip of Greece sending her roses – but she burns to prove herself as

more than a society girl, working to translate decoded enemy secrets. Selfmade

Mab masters the legendary codebreaking machines as she conceals old

wounds and the poverty of her East-End London upbringing. And shy local girl

Beth is the outsider who trains as one of the Park’s few female cryptanalysts.

1947, London. Seven years after they first meet, on the eve of the royal

wedding between Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip, disaster threatens.

Osla, Mab and Beth are estranged, their friendship torn apart by secrets and

betrayal. Yet now they must race against the clock to crack one final code

together, before it’s too late, for them and for their country.

Triathlon stars set to light

up the Sea2Sky Challenge

The Brad Richards Building Sea2Sky

Challenge 2021 will boast a stellar line up

this year with the majority of New Zealands

olympic triathlon hopefuls heading to

Sumner on 14th March.

The annual Challenge offers an end of

summer test for the serious athlete as well

as those that just want to give it a try. The

sixth edition of the challenge has partnered

with local company Brad Richards Building

as this year’s principal race sponsor.

Director and Redcliffs resident Brad

Richards completed the 17km run last year

“we are so lucky to have such an incredible

run right on our door step. The section from

Godley Head back to the clocktower is

stunning but tough on the legs with all the

ups and downs”.

The 2021 event will see Olympic triathlon

hopefuls jostle for bragging rights, as well

as over $5000 prize purse. Hayden Wilde,

a rising star of world triathlon and potential

olympic medalist has confirmed his entry,

along with former world Under 23 years

champion Tayler Reid, top international Sam

Ward and local professional Saxon Morgan.

The women’s field will include former

Under 23 years World Champion Rebecca

Spence up against Nicole Van der Kaay,

Commonwealth Games relay medallist, as

well as highly regarded Ainsley Thorpe and

Sophie Corbidge.

The event was the brainchild of Sumner

resident and triathlon legend Dr John

Hellemans whose grand children are now

amongst the participants in the kids event,

“in the early days of triathlon it was all a

bit of an adventure, this event brings some

of that adventure back to a sport that has

become quite structured - it’s also great to

see all the kids involved”.

As well as the elite racing there are events

for all ages and abilities with a duathlon

option, 17km run, Junior racing and kids

Aquathon. One of the oldest competitors

and a regular on the Christchurch triathlon

scene, John Gordon, 81 years young will

also be out there competing.

Plenty of options in funky Yaris

FROM STARLET to Echo to

Yaris, Toyota’s small car range

has been widely accepted in New

Zealand through the years.

I’d have expected nothing less,

each of those models represented

efficiency, practicality and

longevity.

Yaris is still around, just recently

a new-generation model

landed in New Zealand and it

also gets a new three-cylinder

engine that is a bit of a departure

for Toyota.

Nevertheless, in the three drives

I had in that model last year it

quickly charmed me with its

honesty and overall performance.

What’s more, there are also

hybrid options in Yaris, Toyota’s

formidable electric drive system

hooked to the three-potter.

Toyota has now gone one step

further, the Yaris is also available

as Yaris Cross, a funkier car that

is also a little larger all round.

Notably, it is also taller, 30mm

added to the ride height. That

might not seem like much, but it

does make a significant difference

to those who aren’t quite so agile,

entry and egress is much easier,

and ground clearance is just

that little bit more user-friendly.

With the extra length there is

more space inside in which to be

comfortable.

Interestingly, Toyota claims

the Yaris Cross sits in the sport

utility vehicle category, I’m a little

ambivalent on that, I’m suggesting

it’s more of a crossover model,

that is also represented in the

name.

The Yaris Cross shares much the

same driveline componentry as its

stablemates, there are three models

and, as you would have guessed,

there are two hybrid options. This

is some indication of where Toyota

sees the use of fossil fuel and its

environmental impacts. Never

before have New Zealand buyers

seen such a prolific array of hybrid

options, and full credit to Toyota,

the drivelines fit the concept of

Yaris, in all forms, well.

Prices for the Yaris Cross start

at a tempting $29,990 for the

GX-specification petrol-only

model, an extra $4000 will get

you into a GX hybrid, while the

range-topping Limited hybrid sits

at $38,990.

This evaluation focuses on the

two hybrids, and just like the car

it is based on the hybrid system

is something rather special.

Firstly, I’m sold on three-cylinder

engines, and the torquey

characteristics of it hooked to the

surge you get from electric power

makes the Yaris Cross feel rather

feisty. Acceleration from all areas

is surprisingly swift, it will make

100km/h from a standstill in

11.4sec and will power through a

highway overtake in around 7sec

(80-120km/h).

Toyota claims outputs of 67kW

and 120Nm from the 1490cc

petrol engine, add in an extra

TRENDY: The Yaris Cross sits on the outer periphery of the

sport utility vehicle market.

TOYOTA YARIS CROSS: Hybrid or petrol-only drivelines.

18kW of electric energy and it

all equates to very respectable

figures.

Of course, we all relate to fuel

efficiency when the term hybrid

is used, and Toyota lists the Yaris

Cross hybrid with a 3.8-litre per

100km/h combined cycle average.

That’s pretty much the same as

the standard Yaris at 3.4l/100km

and sits well with the 5l/100km

figure during my time in both

evaluation cars. At 100km/h there

is a 4l/100km return instantaneously.

When I picked up both

vehicles they were full of fuel,

each registering a 500km distance

before refuelling, that’s quite impressive

and I have no doubt that

would be achievable.

Bear in mind that the hybrid

system is working constantly to

prevent the internal combustion

engine firing. Depending on

throttle application and how you

drive, considerable fuel savings

can be made. It’s the best of both

worlds really, fuel saving and

solid boost when acceleration is

required. That’s something that

Toyota has done well with its

hybrid system, and as further

development comes through that

equation will only be increased

in time.

As it is now I find the system

quite remarkable even to the

point where I’ve said many times

before that I’d be tempted into a

• Price – Toyota Yaris Cross

hybrid GX, $33,990;

Limited, $38,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4180mm; width, 1765mm;

height, 1590mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1490cc, 67kW,

120Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.4sec

• Fuel usage – 3.8l/100km

hybrid, it’s doing just that little

bit for the environment as well as

getting a purposeful drive.

Of course, the energy from

both drive elements is channelled

through a continuously variable

transmission, it offers a seamless

flow of energy and ratio change.

The Yaris Cross is also a decent

type of handler. Sure, with its

extra height there are gravitational

compromises, but the steering and

overall balance is biased towards

dynamic, there is solid steering

feedback and precise corner turnin

even in the base model which

has tyres significantly smaller in

diameter than the Limited.

My testing time in the Limited

was perfect. A blustery nor’west

wind was belting the Canterbury

Plains, it was a good test of

Toyota’s crosswind assist safety

program. It was quite noticeable

in the way it corrected and

adjusted steering to compensate.

That’s just one part of Toyota’s

extensive suite of safety technologies

finding their way across the

whole product range.

Not only are safety features

extensive in the Yaris Cross, well,

the entire Yaris range actually,

there are high levels of specification

for comfort and convenience.

Even in base model form

there is still plenty to satisfy long

after a purchase. What’s more,

the trim materials and cosmetic

detailing is high quality, adding to

the comfort levels.

I’d be happy with the GX model

at $34k, but for those who do step

up to Limited specification it’s nice

to know you get a few extra goodies

such as satellite navigation,

head-up display, cloth and leather

trim with heated front seats.

Toyota hasn’t stopped there

with Yaris and development of

the three-cylinder concept. I’m

due to drive the GR Yaris soon, as

its nomenclature suggests it gets

treatment from Toyota’s performance

arm Gazoo Racing. The

GR gets hefty turbocharged boost

and a whole host of go-faster

goodies. I can’t wait for that drive.

In the interim, I’m also scheduled

into the petrol-only Cross,

I’m sure the entire range is going

to leave a solid impression on me.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Showcasing traditional grandeur on a seaside

street of significance, Lochranza, a heritagelisted

home, presents buyers with the chance

to secure a slice of history on an 'as is, where

is' basis.

Overlooking Lyttelton's picturesque harbour,

this waterfront property was constructed in

1892 and served as a mayoral residence.

Exuding character and charm, the home

firmly highlights the craftsmanship and

enduring design elements of the late Victorian

era. A first-floor main bedroom has been

renovated and is fitted with bespoke furnishings,

a sizeable walk-in wardrobe and a superbly

tiled ensuite, offering just a hint of what could

be achieved by a full-scale refurbishment.

This flows through to the sun-drenched

upper balcony, the perfect spot to enjoy your

morning coffee overlooking the marina Te Ana.

Grand living spaces are settled within the

substantial 270sqm floor plan, along with five

bedrooms and two bathrooms, offering plenty

of space for families or those who run a homebased

business. The central living zone is

beautifully arranged, with a grand dining

room, separate library, and a fabulous front

room with stunning harbour views. The

generously sized approx 685m² section is

magnificently landscaped with framed areas

providing the perfect backdrop for young

children and avid entertainers.

This vast home is kept comfortable by three

heat pumps and additional insulation, while

a single garage completes the package.

Godley Quay, iconic in this waterside suburb,

is renowned for its historic homes. Located

only a stroll from Lyttelton's hub of cafes and

bars, it's also near the school and weekly local

market, ensuring you aren't far from the

community's many conveniences.

This is a unique project for those wanting the

privilege of resuming the renovation and

enhancing the home's natural beauty for

themselves. It's expected to attract considerable

attention, and buyers should act with

appropriate haste.

6.3 earthquake

10 Years On

February 22, 2011 - 2021


Christchurch 6.3 Earthquake 10 Years On

Christchurch earthquake 10 years on

a pictorial snapshot of how Christchurch is moving forward

Steve McCaughan

General Manager

This week marked 10 years since the devastating

February 6.3 earthquake, which struck Christchurch

killing 185 people, injuring thousands, and leaving a trail

of destruction.

It is a time none of us will ever forget. But I am filled

with pride when I recall the efforts and actions of

everyday Cantabrians in the weeks following. To all the

professionals, volunteers and the countless unsung

heroes who helped our recovery, I want to thank you for

your tireless work. The kindness and actions of people

in many ways all accumulated to help us all get through.

It did make a difference and made me proud to be part

of the Canterbury tribe. I also want to acknowledge and

thank my team at Star Media, publishers of Bay Harbour

News. With our building and press destroyed in the

February quake, we were in a perilous position. I recall

meeting with my senior team, first thing the next morning

at McDonalds Riccarton (they still had power on), and

we planned to publish a daily newspaper from a double

garage at our IT manager’s home. We did this for several

weeks, until we moved into the St Albans Cricket Club in

Hagley Park. The tenacity and resilience shown by our

people at the time was tremendous. It ensured we kept

Christchurch connected and informed, with vital updates

and information for those weeks following.

Our story was just one of thousands, where Cantabrians

rallied, picked themselves back up and just got on with it.

We all battled the odds and the 11,000-odd aftershocks

that followed. We all had our

own personal journey and

challenges to deal with. We

should stand proud of the

recovery we have all made.

Today we are publishing a

pictorial look at our city 10 years on and the progress

made. We still have more work to do yet, but I am excited

about the fact that everyday our city just gets better and

is constantly improving.

In the words of CHCHNZ – “We are a city where you can

choose how to live your life – surrounded by stunning

natural landscapes”.

John Bridgman

Chief Executive Otakaro Ltd

We’re planning to hold the first events towards the end of

this year.

I start with that because the question about when Te Pae

Christchurch Convention Centre will be open is the one I’m

most often greeted with.

It’s great that there is such anticipation around this Crown-led anchor project and it’s

not the only one to get excited about, as we push to get all our spaces and places

completed by the end of next year.

In April we’ll be opening the North Frame pedestrian bridge, the final element to be

added to the largest ever public realm transformation undertaken in New Zealand –

Te Papa Ōtākaro/Avon River Precinct.

We’re working on the final few hundred metres of the South Frame. This new, gardenlined

cycle and pedestrian laneway across the city should be near complete come

the end of the year.

And the Metro Sports Facility has become hard to miss on Moorhouse Ave, as we

look to complete construction of the nine indoor courts and eleven pools and spas by

the end of next year.

This leads to another common question – Why has it taken this long?

I can only speak for the time since Ōtākaro Ltd was established early in 2016. By then

a lot of significant planning and demolition work had been done, but many sites were

still bare. So off we went, asked by the Government to deliver some of the largest

horizontal and vertical infrastructure projects in the country, in a relatively confined

space, on tricky ground, with a stretched construction sector and a global pandemic

at the tail end. It was a big ask and I am proud of what we have achieved so far.

The reality is the regeneration of Christchurch will never be finished, and you wouldn’t

want it to be.

In the near future this city is going to be home to some of the best business, sports

and recreation facilities in New Zealand. The Crown and Council have tackled the big

stuff, the hard stuff, the infrastructure that will draw the masses in and set Christchurch

up for success for generations to come. The next stage in the city’s evolution is what

happens in the spaces in between.

Lianne Dalziel

Christchurch Mayor

An anniversary is a time when we come together to

remember the events of the day and to reflect on all that

means to us.

The 10th anniversary of the February 22, 2011 earthquake

recalls the loss of 185 lives, and the impact this had had on

their families and friends. Our hearts go out to all of them

both here in New Zealand and in the 20 other countries where they came from.

We also remember those who were injured or experienced trauma on that day. For

many there is no erasing of the memory of what occurred, nor the scars – seen and

unseen – that remain.

We acknowledge the changes to our laws, requiring buildings to be built to stronger

seismic standards, as well as decisions to retrofit buildings, that have made our city

safer than it was. Lessons we have learned here have been shared across New

Zealand and the world, leaving a legacy that will help protect lives in the future.

And we again express our gratitude for all those who tried to help save lives regardless

of their own safety on that day, and all those who helped over the days and weeks

that followed.

I often think about the thousands of people who flooded the damaged suburbs

with support. I think of the existing community leaders who stepped up in their own

communities and the emergent leaders who, like Sam Johnson and the team who

set up the Student Volunteer Army. The SVA is an enduring example of the legacy

they have left.

We also remember that this was the earthquake that changed our landscape forever,

seeing thousands of residents forced from their homes and communities.

The promise that now sits in the Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan is

another legacy for the future.

When we experience loss on this scale, it can be hard at the time to gauge the sheer

enormity of the recovery that lies ahead.

When I look along Oxford Tce by the Bridge of Remembrance, that one snapshot

helps me see the essence of what we imagined we could be when we contributed to

‘Share an Idea’. And that always gives me optimism for the future of our city.

Stories of courage and hope, and the science behind the quakes

clients who are coming to us needing help to resolve their outstanding earthquake claims.

I am privileged to be in the position I am in, to take the burden off my clients’ shoulders and

who provide an initial consultation, free of charge, to take the time to listen and understand

your individual needs.

policy entitlements. This is where Shine

Lawyers come in. Come and talk to us,

you have nothing to lose”.
