Finding happiness again after tragic loss

HAPPY AGAIN: Julie Zarifeh enjoying time and a continued zest for life with her fiancé, Henare Howard.

• By Samantha Mythen

AFTER JULIE Zarifeh lost her

eldest son just 16 days after her

husband died in 2017, Zarifeh

told media she did not think

that she would “ever truly be

happy again”.

But life is full of surprises and

Zarifeh has found new love.

She is engaged to be married.

Zarifeh met her fiancé, Henare

Howard via an online dating site.

It was a chance meeting as

Zarifeh had set her parameters

of meeting someone within

50km of Christchurch.

Yet, every so often the dating

site would send you a “what if”

profile.

The site asked Zarifeh:

“What if there was someone

who you matched with highly

but they were based out of

Christchurch?”

Howard, based in Wellington,

had already received the what

if question and had looked at

Zarifeh’s profile. He then sent

her an email saying hello.

discussed

at meeting

• By Samantha Mythen

DIAMOND HARBOUR residents

will be updated on the longrunning

Godley House site saga

on Monday.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula city councillor Andrew

Turner will talk to residents at the

Diamond Harbour Community

Association annual meeting.

It comes after the city council

asked the Department of Conservation

this week on whether the

legal status of part of the reserve

near the Godley House site could

be changed to accommodate a

licensed facility.

Said city council acting head of

parks Brenden Winder: “The next

steps will be dependent on the outcome

of the city council’s query.

“We do not know the time

frame for response.”

Turner was a bit vague when

asked by Bay Harbour News

yesterday what he would be telling

Diamond Harbour residents on

Monday.

Turner said: “I expect I will be

talking about how an area could

be made available to support the

developement of a commercial

business to meet the aspirations of

the community. • Turn to page 5

yoga pose of the month

Locust

Pose

Locust pose is a great way to strengthen your back. If your back is weak from

disuse or from poor posture, locust is a means for you to regain alignment and

strength in your back.

1. Lie down on your front. You may use a

folded towel or even a thin cushion to pad

the front of your hips if you wish.

2. Flex your toes down towards the floor and

press your heels towards the back of the

room.

3. Engage your quadriceps on the front of

your thighs and straighten your legs at the

knee.

4. Place your hands alongside you with your

fingers pointing forwards, your palms facing

downwards and your elbows pointing

upwards.

5. Engage the muscles on the backs of your

thighs and in your buttocks. Lift your legs

off the floor.

6. Draw your shoulders towards the back of

your body and press your chest forward.

Lift as much of your torso off the floor as

you can.

7. Draw your chin towards your throat,

lengthen the back of your neck and keep

your head in line with your spine as you lift.

Do not collapse your head down towards

the floor.

8. Hold this lifted position for a count of five.

Gently lower to the floor. Turn your left ear

to the mat and pause a few moments.

9. Repeat the pose again. After the second

locust turn your right ear to the mat.

Locust is not for show. There are no prizes for how high you can elevate yourself. Work within

yourself to build tone and strength in your back and alignment and balance to your posture.

Cemetery project makes progress

• By Samantha Mythen

AFTER 10 years of

campaigning, the Akaroa

cemeteries improvement project

is finally seeing progress, just in

time for the 180th anniversary

weekend commemorating the

Comte de Paris settlers’ arrival

to the area.

The city council has cleared

two trees which had grown

through historic grave sites and

it is currently repairing and

restoring four damaged headstones.

The headstones will be

unveiled on Saturday during the

anniversary event.

The project has been driven by

the Comte de Paris Descendants

Group and Akaroa Cemeteries

Group.

Descendants group member,

Linda Sunderland said:

“Without our persistence and

perseverance, I don’t think this

would have happened. We are so

grateful this is finally happening.

“Akaroa is the first formal

European settlement in the

South Island. The people buried

there made it happen. The site is

of historical significance to New

Zealand.”

Settlers from France, Germany

and Belgium travelled on the

Comte de Paris ship for many

months, arriving in Akaroa on

August 16, 1840. Many of the

BIG EFFORT: Members of the Comte de Paris

Descendants Group and the Akaroa Cemeteries Group

take part in one of the many working bees to maintain

the town’s historic cemeteries.

original settlers are buried in the

town’s cemeteries.

Over the three-day weekend

event, hosted by the descendants

group and the Libeau family,

there will be guided historical

tours around the town and

cemeteries, as well as a dinner

and dance.

The Akaroa Museum is also

showcasing an exhibition centered

on the town in 1840.

The project’s progress comes

after the groups made another

plea to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board, asking for

its continued support of the

cemetery restoration at a board

meeting in early February.

Said Sunderland: “Over 10

years we have been patient and

persevered. We have saved the

council money with our working

bees and heritage work. Every

thing they have asked of us, we

have done,” she said.

“We don’t know what else we

can do.”

In 2010, the groups had written

to former mayor Bob Parker, asking

if they could work together

with the city council to restore

earthquake-damaged headstones.

What followed was a large

amount of persistence and determination

from the two groups

with little action from the city

council.

The groups had wanted the

headstones to be restored for

the 150th anniversary, and have

since carried out an assessment

of 40 heritage headstones as part

of their restoration project.

The next projects for the group

includes campaigning for the installation

of a memorial entrance

to the Catholic church cemetery.

“The memorial entrance is a

gift to the council, Christchurch

and the Akaroa community,

paid for by the descendants

group,” Sunderland said.

“It is a gesture of good intention

and it’s a shame it has been

so difficult to get it in place.”

A further project is extending

the cemetery for ongoing burials.

The city council’s Cemeteries

Master Plan expects future

burial requirements of Akaroa to

occur at Duvauchelle Cemetery.

Sunderland said: “The lack of

burial space and maintenance

shows a disregard and disrespect

for those buried there and their

families.”

Sunderland discussed these

issues at the Banks Peninsula

Community Board meeting last

Monday.

As a result the board will

request that the city council

continue with the development

of the memorial gate, subject

to the necessary consent

requirements.

The Bravest Voices

A Memoir of Two Sisters’ Heroism during the Nazi era

by Ida Cook

This timeless memoir documents two sisters’ bravery leading up to WWII—a singular

historical account that shines a light on one of humanity’s darkest hours.

Ida and Louise Cook are two ordinary Englishwomen, seemingly destined never to

stray from their quiet London suburb and comfortable jobs—Ida as a budding romance

novelist and Louise as a civil service typist. But in 1923, a chance hearing of an

aria from Madame Butterfly sparked a passion for opera in the sisters that led to the

formation of friendships with some of Europe’s leading singers and their network, many

of them Jewish. As the Nazis rose to power, Ida and Louise began working with the

opera world’s insiders to save members of the community from persecution and death.

Through ingenuity, thrift and bottomless goodwill, the sisters eluded the suspicion of

the Nazis and helped secure safe passage for dozens of refugees. No one would have

predicted such daring lives for Ida and Louise Cook—but that underestimation is exactly

how they were able to save lives.

Kiwi Success Stories in the Time of Covid

By david downs Joe davis

The Covid-19 lockdown in New Zealand caused fear, hardship and loss. Through this time

of unprecedented national hardship, however, there emerged incredible stories of hope

and optimism. Businesses innovated and found new ways to create value, communities

came together in new ways online, and families reconnected through time spent together.

This book is a collection of those stories from across Aotearoa.

The book was the brainchild of the well-known business Nanogirl Labs, which lost a

full 18-month work calendar over a few days before the Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown.

Founders Joe Davis and Michelle Dickinson (Nanogirl) could have closed their doors

and headed home. Instead, they made a choice to change direction and four days later

launched a brand-new, entirely online learning program for families. They tripled their

staff headcount as the lockdown loomed, took on new premises, built a full production

studio and went to market. They now have thousands of subscribers across 76 countries

around the world, and are growing fast.

Liftoff

elon Musk and the desperate early days That Launched

Spacex

By eric Berger

The dramatic inside story of the first four historic flights that launched SpaceX-and Elon Muskfrom

a shaky startup into the world’s leading edge rocket company. SpaceX has enjoyed a

miraculous decade. Less than 20 years after its founding, it boasts the largest constellation

of commercial satellites in orbit, has pioneered reusable rockets, and in 2020 became

the first private company to launch human beings into orbit. Half a century after the space

race SpaceX is pushing forward into the cosmos, laying the foundation for our exploration

of other worlds. But before it became one of the most powerful players in the aerospace

industry, SpaceX was a fledgling startup, scrambling to develop a single workable rocket

before the money ran dry. The engineering challenge was immense; numerous other private

companies had failed similar attempts. And even if SpaceX succeeded, they would then

have to compete for government contracts with titans such as Lockheed Martin and Boeing,

who had tens of thousands of employees and tens of billions of dollars in annual revenue.

Her Say

Survivors of domestic Abuse Tell Their Own Stories

By Jackie Clark

In 2013, Jackie Clark launched The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to

rebuild their lives after a period of trauma. She quit her job, turning her back on her

comfortable life, to focus on The Aunties full-time, becoming Aunty in Charge and

assisting hundreds of women with material needs and emotional support. Jackie has

long dreamed of a publication that gives these women a voice. This powerful new book

features the stories of a number of very different New Zealand women, told their way.

The collected stories chart their narrators’ lives and personal histories, through the lens

of having lived with - and escaped - an abusive relationship. Her Say is spoken from

the heart, uncompromising but offering hope, redemption, personal triumph. It’s a book

for all women, showing how owning our stories gives us the power to write daring

new endings. It will challenge, illuminate, and empower readers - not to mention the

storytellers themselves.

• From page 1

“I haven’t decided the exact

content of what I’ll present yet.”

The community is hoping to see

a licensed hospitality venue built

on the historical and culturally

significant site.

It was discovered in 2018, that the

site had been made a recreational

reserve by the Banks Peninsula

District Council in 2006.

That means the site can only be

used for the purposes of a reserve

under the Reserves Act 1977. The

act defines the legal requirements

around what buildings can be

constructed and how the reserve

can be used, which excludes a

licensed venue.

The temporary lease on the site

which allowed the establishment

of the Dark Star Ale House in

2011, was a mistake

by the city

council and the

lease had to end.

The Banks

Peninsula Community

Board

has been working

with the city

council attempting

to change the reserve status.

If that happened, a piece of land

could be used for the construction

of a building such as Godley House.

Said Turner: “There is no

reason, from looking at the site’s

history, why a corner couldn’t be

carved off.”

Winder said in order for a

licensed hospitality venue to be

built on the site, the recreation

reserve status would need to be

revoked by the Minister of Conservation.

In order for that to happen,

there would first need to be consultation

with the public, where

the community could provide

submissions heard by a city

council hearings panel. The panel

would summarise the submissions,

providing a recommendation

to the community board.

The city council would then

consider the recommendation

of the community board and if

the full city council supports the

revocation, an application is made

to the Minister of Conservation

via the Department of Conservation,

which would make a recommendation

itself.

During 2019, the city council

held a public consultation with

members of the community,

including Diamond Harbour

School, residents and local businesses,

asking them what they

would like to see at the reserve.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Desire to have somewhere to socialise

Andrew

Turner

Two hundred and forty one

submissions were received.

The feedback was diverse but

an overarching theme was the

desire of the community to have

somewhere to socialise.

One hundred and thirty two

people specifically requested a

licensed hospitality venue.

Currently, there is only one eatery

within the village’s centre near

the vicinity of the wharf, which

often sees an influx of visitors.

A report from city council staff

was sent to the community board

in September 2019. It recommended

the establishment of a cafe, however,

it noted it would be unlicensed

due to the site’s reserve status.

In response to this, the Diamond

• The earthquakes

• The foundations remain

the city council’s recommendations

and continues to support

the community’s desire for the

licensed hospitality venue.

Sewage

spills from

manhole

• By Samantha Mythen

A MANHOLE has been

overflowing with sewage in

Drayton Reserve in Mt Pleasant

for the last five days.

An Environment Canterbury

incident response officer visited

the site yesterday morning

to assess the situation and

environmental effects.

ECan said it appears the

flooding is not affecting the

nearby stream.

However, Drayton Reserve

volunteers co-ordinator, Dave

Bryce said sewage is flowing

into Glenstrae Stream nearby

and it has already discoloured

a small pool of water at the

top of the waterfall in the

reserve.

Bryce was told about the

overflow on Friday by another

volunteer. He rang ECan’s

pollution hotline to report the

event.

Another reserve volunteer

reported it on the city council

website on Monday night

with Bryce again ringing ECan

to ask when the issue would be

sorted.

Said Bryce: “It is totally

disgusting and unacceptable

for raw sewage to be flowing

into the stream. There’s a mess

down the hillside which should

be cleaned up and the stream

should be flushed because of no

diluting flow.’’

An ECan spokesperson said it

was understood the city council

will fix the problem “as soon as

possible.’’

Contractor commissioned

to remove graffiti poem

• By Samantha Mythen

THE DARK and

apocalyptic graffiti poem

on a wall next to the

playing field at Lyttelton

Primary School is going to

be removed.

The confirmation

from the city council

comes almost seven

months after Lyttelton

resident Paul Dietsche

first complained to the

city council about the

graffiti via their Snap Send

Resolve module.

A city council

spokesperson said: “We

are looking into why this

request was not advanced

and apologise for the

inconvenience caused.

“We plan to have this

resolved within the next

week.”

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said an order with

a specialist contractor was

placed last Monday for the

graffiti’s removal.

There are 29 different

methods of removing

graffiti depending on the

type of material the graffiti

is on.

From September 2020 to

February 2021, 6550 graffiti

tickets were reported

via Snap Send Solve for the

Christchurch area.

During this time period,

80 tickets were marked as

being in Lyttelton.

The wall in Lyttelton

has a Heritage One listing

as it is part of the historic

Lyttelton Gaol. This means

a special process is needed

to remove the graffiti.

‘There is no where

else I’d rather be’

• From page 1

A curious Zarifeh looked at Howard’s

profile and liked what she saw.

“I thought, ohhh, it could well be worth

meeting Henare.”

Howard works as a senior Māori

advisor at Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion

Agency, and they share a common

interest in the health sector.

Zarifeh was already due to fly up to

Wellington for a concert and so they organised

to meet on February 8 last year.

Their first meeting over coffee turned

into a nine-hour date.

After their initial meeting, they shared

a couple of weekend dates.

Then the country went into lockdown.

Not to be deterred, the couple spent

their days working and then joined each

other on Zoom, chatting while watching a

movie together at the same time.

Howard “wooed” Zarifeh, even from

afar, sending her flowers and croissants.

“We had a mutual interest in seeing

where this would go,” Zarifeh said.

Seven months later, Howard dropped

down on one knee and asked Zarifeh to

marry him.

“The ironic thing is that Henare’s

surname is my maiden name.”

Zarifeh had no idea what the future

would hold after the loss of Paul. She was

perfectly content in her own company,

open to new friendships, but she never

thought she would be getting married

again.

“I feel very lucky,” she said.

The proposal took Zarifeh by surprise but

it was with no hesitation that she said yes.

“It felt right,” she said.

In January, they spent five weeks

touring the North Island in a campervan,

spending time with Howard’s friends and

family in Northland.

“I love the fact he has embraced our

family’s loss of Paul and Sam as part of

our story,” Zarifeh said.

“He often has me in his ear telling him

lots about them, and he has embraced it

all, which is really lovely.”

They are planning to move in together

at Zarifeh’s home in Sumner.

“I have a 15-month-old grandson and

another grandchild on the way,” Zarifeh

said.

“There is no where else I’d rather be.”

• By Samantha Mythen

WHISTLING Buoy, a

family-owned winery and

vineyard nestled into the hills

surrounding Charteris Bay,

has begun its 2021 vintage.

Said managing director Neil

Pattinson: “The grapes are tasting

and looking really good.”

The winery is hopeful for

the year ahead after taking a

blow in 2020 from the effects

of Covid-19.

Air New Zealand had

chosen the winery’s 2016

wild-fermented pinot noir to

serve business class flyers on

international flights through

winter and spring of 2020. But

the pandemic grounded the

overseas fleet before it could

happen.

“This was an unfortunate

setback we could have done

without,” said Pattinson.

“We are now focusing on

our local and Banks Peninsula

roots, represented throughout

Lyttelton Harbour in shops

and supermarkets.”

The harvested grapes will be

transported to Waipara where

HARVEST: Neil and Jill Pattinson tend to the vines at

Whistling Buoy winery.

they will be made into wine.

Whistling Buoy began in

2000 when its first vines were

planted in an area which used

to be a pony paddock and then

before that, a sheep paddock.

Said Pattinson: “We first

planted the vines as an indicator

to see if the site would

produce good pinot noir, and

the proof is in the pudding.

We’ve been growing some

exceptional pinot noir.”

In 2013, it purchased Kokolo,

a vineyard in Teddington, 3km

away from their home block.

From that moment, Pattinson

said his family turned

a hobby into a commercial

business.

It’s a family affair. Pattinson,

his wife, Jill and their

son, Chris, all help out with

the vineyard. Chris studied

viticulture and oenology at

Lincoln University.

The name of the winery was

inspired by the marker buoy

between Adderley and Godley

Heads, marking the entrance

to Lyttelton Harbour.

Banks Peninsula, surprisingly

to many, has seen a

viticulture potential since

French immigrants settled in

Akaroa in 1840, bringing vine

cuttings from their homeland.

Akaroa’s suitability for

viticulture was confirmed

in 1895, when international

viticulturist Romeo Bragato

visited New Zealand shores

to determine the country’s

ability for wine making.

However, commercial

wine production only began

in the late 1970s. The first

commercial vineyard seen

in Canterbury was St Helena

Estate, established at Coutts

Island in 1978.

“To the south east, Christchurch has two extinct volcanoes

(though they wobble occasionally) which are broken up with

bays, harbours, pockets of bush and farmland which has a

sparse road network and a strong sense of isolation in parts.

A fantastic area of exploration and a playground which I enjoy

and paint, sometimes from afar and sometimes from within.

I particularly enjoy painting the dry summer tussock colours

against the blues and greens of the sea water and the low sun

sparking off the water which deliver contrast and warm vibrant

colours.

I hope some of these paintings remind you of some adventure

you have had on Banks Peninsula, the smells and tranquillity

when you can sit for a moment to rest and enjoy the view.”

Born in 1959 in Christchurch New Zealand where he lives

and works, Philip works in oil, water-colour, dry-point and

monotype. His immediate environment is Christchurch, where

he lives, with its cityscapes, the Canterbury plains, the Southern

Alps and Banks Peninsula - all sources of subject matter and

inspiration.

Dealing with a double tragedy

Grief on the Run is

on the book shelves.

It tells Julie Zarifeh’s

story about losing

her husband and

son within 16 days.

TakeNote Ferrymead

will donate $2 to

the Mental Health

Foundation for every

copy sold

WHEN SUMNER’S Julie

Zarifeh lost her husband to

pancreatic cancer she never

imagined that 16 days later she

would also lose her son in a tragic

rafting accident.

Paul Zarifeh, died on November

23, 2017, and his 27-year-old

son Sam drowned while on a

rafting trip with workmates on

December 9.

The family’s grief was immense

and at the time Julie

Zarifeh said she felt she would

not “ever truly be happy again”.

“To experience both ends of

the grief spectrum in a twoweek

period – the very sad but

anticipated bereavement of Paul,

but then the acute, tragic, shock

loss of eldest son Sam – is truly

indescribable,” she said.

Just over three years have

passed since the double blow

rocked the family and Zarifeh

has published a book about how

she coped with the loss and

moved her life forward.

A clinical psychologist, Zarifeh

embarked on a journey of “active

grieving’’ and said once she had

adjusted to the initial shock, she

started setting herself goals.

The first was a 450km cycle

tour around Sri Lanka to raise

money to give disadvantaged

Kiwi children new bikes.

Then, she trekked the 800km

Camino de Santiago and ran the

New York marathon on behalf of

the Mental Health Foundation.

Zarifeh’s book – titled Grief

on the Run - was this released

month.

In it she reveals she was at a

movie when her son died and she

emerged to turn her phone on

and find messages from a neighbour

saying police were looking

for her.

She said she had a “real maternal

gut instinct that it wasn’t

going to be good news, and that

it was Sam.”

“I’d been feeling really weird

all day actually, it wasn’t good,”

she told NewstalkZB host Chris

Lynch.

The book canvasses the death

of both her husband and son and

Zarifeh reveals there was a 24-

hour period where she could not

see any point in living her life.

“I literally was curled up in a

foetal position on the floor,” she

said.

“We really debated whether

we had it in us to have another

funeral . . . then the family decided

that Sam did need to have a

funeral … I was just lying on the

floor listening.

“I woke up the next morning

and thought, ah, my gig – and I

wanted to be the person that organised

the celebration for Sam.”

After she buried her son

Zarifeh decided she was not going

to let the deaths define her.

She said while her husband

was dying she was preparing

herself for that.

“I obviously didn’t factor in the

loss of Sam, 16 days later,” she

said.

“So the decisions I’d made

already in terms of deciding to

go on the Camino walk etc, just

took on a more poignancy and

meaning.

“Paul’s was a tragic but anticipated

slow demise, so you grieve

in advance … compare that with

the absolute and utter shock of

father Paul and brother Jared.

death, you’re trying to work out

how to marry those two ways of

coping .

“The book kind of talks about

that, and how I pulled it all

together.”

Zarifeh said the book that

chronicles her journey of active

grieving had an element of tragedy

but had also been described as

“uplifting”.

couple of times but you’ll also

have laughter,” she said.

She said she had the “perfect

storm” of training, skill and tools

from her career and work to help

her get through her ordeal.

Currently working as a consultant

clinical psychologist,

Zarifeh has investigated the psychological

factors contributing

to ‘broken heart syndrome’ after

the earthquakes and has presented

at many conferences.

She is also working with

survivors and family members

affected by the March 15 terror

attack.

But she also wanted to pass her

knowledge on to others – anyone

who was struggling with grief in

any way.

She explained the theory she

lived by and what the book was

about.

“The term active grieving

doesn’t just refers to exercise – in

my case I went pretty hard out,”

she said.

“Active is just staying moving,

keeping moving, keeping active

-whatever you do in your day-today

life, keeping up with that.

“Not withdrawing, not letting

the grief become so all-consuming

that you withdraw into

yourself and stop connecting.

“Doing activities of daily living

that we all know are important

and crucial for us to keep on top

of things.’’

Zarifeh said she was doing

“pretty good.”

“But that’s not to say I still

don’t have my moments of being

absolutely sideswiped by what we

call a grief hijack, that can come

out of the blue for no particular

reason,” she said.

“I continue to be extremely deliberate

on a daily basis on how I

conduct myself.”

She said routine was crucial

and helped her keep on track.

Her day started with exercise –

a morning walk or more recently,

a cold water ocean dip watching

the sunrise.

Zarifeh said initially she was

only going to write the book for

her family but she decided to

push forward after encouragement.

“It became my job,” she said.

“I wasn’t ready to go back to

work at that point … and then

it’s just grown into this thing.

Zarifeh said there are five basic

ways to well-being:

• Connect – spending time

with people who you strongly

connect to, emotionally.

• Give – giving your own time

or resources to help others, unconditionally.

• Choose what to focus on –

focusing on the good things in

life: past, present and future.

• Learn – continue learning

whether it’s a new sport, hobby,

language or studying.

• Be active – walking on the

beach, swimming, skiing, running

etc.

Autumn equinox a time to

reflect and contemplate

• By Samantha Mythen

THE Stonecircle

Interspiritual Community

gathered together in

Heathcote on Sunday

to celebrate autumn

equinox.

Diamond Harbour

resident Michele Cherry

who is a reverend of the

group said autumn marks

the time to plant seeds to

harvest before winter.

“These are seeds in our

gardens as well as seeds of

spiritual tools we can harvest

to support us during

the darker days of winter,”

she said.

The group created

an ‘autumn alter,’ read

autumnal themed poems

and stories, and shared a

vegetarian lunch.

The equinox was on

Saturday at 10.37pm. It occurs

when the sun moves

north across the celestial

equator, marking the

first day of astronomical

autumn.

Said Cherry: “It is a

common feeling to not

look forward to winter

but it is a really valuable

time to rest, reflect and

contemplate. To also be

grateful, because without

winter, we would not have

spring.”

Cherry shared the

story of Demeter and her

daughter, Persephone,

an ancient Greek myth

explaining the origin of

the seasons.

The group believes

in spiritual growth and

exploration. It welcomes

new members whatever

their background or faith

tradition. The belief of

the group is that there is

a deeper experience of

unity which lies beneath

the different theological

and spiritual beliefs and

practices seen in the world

today.

“It embraces all the faith

traditions as all have the

central message of love,”

said Cherry.

The group celebrate the

changing of the seasons

every three months and

also meet for a reflective

gathering on the third

Sunday of every month.

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Coastal Pathway questions answered

The Christchurch

Coastal Pathway Group

answers questions

raised by members of

the public at its stand

at the recent Estuary

Fest at Mt Pleasant

Community Centre

When will construction of the

Moncks Bay section begin?

The city council is project

managing the construction of

the pathway. It is hoping to get

the tender process under way in

May with the aim of beginning

construction this winter.

When will the Moncks Bay

section be completed?

As with all major construction

projects, the time frame for the

build is hard to predict. However,

the city council is hoping to

have the construction complete

by winter 2022.

How will the pathway work at

the section where the yacht club

boat shed is under construction?

The coastal pathway group

made a financial contribution

to the construction of the new

boat shed, thereby securing a

right of way over a 4m wide strip

of the platform for the pathway.

Ramps at either end will connect

the deck of the boat shed with

the pathway. We expect that

this deck will provide a pleasant

stopping point for pathway users

to enjoy one of the most picturesque

parts of the pathway.

Will the Moncks Bay section

require a cantilevered platform?

According to the city council

traffic engineers, most of the

existing road bed is wide enough

to build a 4m coastal pathway

as well as two car lanes and

on-road cycle lanes. This will

require some realignment of the

road and speed limit changes.

However, the section between

the CYC Boatshed and Rapanui

Shag Rock will be cantilevered

in some places due to the limited

road width available.

For more detail on the new

road layout and traffic management

plan see:

https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/

consultations-and-submissions/

haveyoursay/show/355

Will there be toilets installed

along this section of the pathway?

At this stage there are no plans

to install toilets anywhere on the

Moncks Bay section. There are

public toilets in Barnett Park,

and the council is considering

providing signage to direct pathway

users there.

How does the new cycle

lane along Humphrey’s Drive

work in with the Coastal

Pathway?

Currently there is a new

section of cycleway being

constructed along Linwood Ave

to extend the Rapanui – Shag

Rock cycle route. Once complete

it will connect to Humphreys

Drive via Charlesworth Reserve.

This is a separate council project

which also received “shovel

ready” funding from central

government. It will connect

to the Coastal Pathway at the

Ferrymead Bridge.

•If you have other

questions or would like

to meet the team, join

us at our annual meeting

at 7pm on May 12 at the

Christchurch Yacht Club.

Simon Kingham will

deliver the keynote

followed by an update

by city council project

manager David King and

CCPG chair Hanno Sander.

The construction of Humphreys Drive

one of New

Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each

about the history of

Humphreys Drive

YOU MAY have noticed the

road works along Humphreys

Drive alongside the Linwood

Canal. This is another link in the

city council’s Rapaki/Shag Rock

cycleway to the city.

We now accept that this road

is a major route in and out of the

city for bays residents.

But it was not always so. Humphreys

Drive was a latecomer as

an estuary side road.

Until the mid-1930s, Linwood

Ave was a blind road which

stopped at the estuary edge. The

main route in and out of town

was Ferry Rd.

But in the Depression years,

the council decided that relief

workers could be used to connect

Linwood Ave to the Ferrymead

bridge.

Walter de Their offered rock

from his quarry on St Andrews

Hill and 2000 yards of rock were

used.

His land was also used as a

base for the 70 or so workers,

and for storing explosives.

Another local businessman,

George Humphreys, of Sumner,

donated the use of two of his

trucks along with drivers and

free petrol.

Humphreys was the founder

of the wine and spirits merchants

Fletcher Humphreys in

Christchurch.

He was also a director of

the Canterbury Frozen meat

Company and prominent in the

Chamber of Commerce.

He had a large estate near

Sumner and also owned the

land formerly occupied by the

Zealandia Soap and Candle factory;

that land is now part of the

Charlesworth Wetland Reserve.

Work began in 1933 and

informally the road was referred

to as either Estuary Rd or the

Linwood Ave extension.

But the name Humphreys

Drive was officially adopted in

1950 to honour the contributions

of George Humphreys.

Strength

in numbers

How we’re rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine

We have secured enough doses of the Pfizer vaccine for everyone

16 years and over in Aotearoa. Any vaccine’s strength is in numbers.

The more of us who get vaccinated, the stronger and safer we’ll all be.

It will give us more freedom in our daily lives, and more options for our

whānau, our businesses and our country. Because when we roll up our

own sleeves, we’re helping to protect all of us.

Here are the key facts about the Pfizer vaccine:

It’s safe

It has been approved by our own

Medsafe experts. It’s also already

been used successfully all around

the world by millions of people,

and by thousands here in

New Zealand too.

It’s effective

The Pfizer vaccine is 95%

effective when you receive

both doses.

It’s free

The vaccine will be free for

everyone in the country. We have

secured over 10 million doses of

the Pfizer vaccine. That’s enough

for all of New Zealand.

New Zealand’s vaccination rollout plan

The rollout plan for the Pfizer vaccine is simple. Everyone in the country aged 16 and over falls into

one of four groups. Firstly, we’ll protect those most at risk of picking up the virus in their workplaces

– and then those most at risk of getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19.

NOW FROM MARCH FROM MAY FROM JULY

Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4

Border and MIQ workers

Frontline workers and

people in high-risk areas

65+ and people with

underlying health

conditions or disabilities

Everyone else

aged 16 and over

More strength. More freedom. More options.

We’ll let you know when it’s your turn for the vaccine. Until then, please

keep using the NZ COVID Tracer app, and stay home if you’re sick.

From tree removals to hedge

trimming - no job too big or small

WITH winter approaching, now is the

time to consider maintenance of those

out of control trees, bushes and shrubs.

Because it’s important that this type of

maintenance is done safely and efficiently,

it is strongly recommended such jobs be

done by a professional arborist. Special

Branch Tree Care NZ based in Lyttelton is

expert in all areas of tree maintenance and

removal.

Owned and operated by David Craig,

David has over 25 years’ experience as

an arborist and is a specialist when it

comes to hillside work and rigging safety

equipment.

If you have concerns about a certain

tree on your property, give David a call.

He can carry out a thorough Tree Report

outlining any health and safety issues such

as deadwood, cracks, decay, weak branch

unions, broken limbs, root problems, or

simply just general poor tree architecture,

and from here recommend what action

should be taken.

But David doesn’t just do tree removals

at dizzying heights. He is a specialist in all

areas of landscape maintenance including

Formative Pruning - pruning of young

trees to improve structure, health and

form, Thinning - often recommended

by David as the best course of action for

mature trees in an urban environment

followed by selective pruning to expose

branch structure and allow more light

through the canopy, Crown Reductions -

reductions in height and crown diameter,

and Hedge Trimming.

Clean up is easy. David offers site waste

removal, wood chipping and firewood

chopping services.

Black Edition keeps Triton desirable

THE LAST SIX months have

been busy for light commercial

distributors.

There have been several vans

entering the market, along with

a succession of new utes landing

here.

That’s no surprise, the buoyant

ute or pick-up sector in New

Zealand is following overseas

trends, not only are they the

practical load carrier, but such is

their sophistication the traditional

double cab ute is often purchased

as the family vehicle of choice.

In terms of what’s new -

Toyota’s Hilux, Isuzu’s D-Max

and Mazda’s BT-50 have all had

a generation change. And I can

report that each of these models

are worthy frontrunners.

However, there’s one other

model that is well represented in

the market and that’s Mitsubishi’s

Triton. Its generational change is

a little out of kilter with the others

but Mitsubishi has upped the ante

as well, there’s a new dress-up

model in the line-up – the Black

Edition. As in the test car’s case, it

was all black, but there are three

other colours available.

Based around the Triton GLS,

the Black Edition is yet another

example of Mitsubishi’s value

pricing. Listing at around $60,000

in the books, it’s available now on

special offer at $47k. Bearing in

mind that the evaluation car had

around $8000 of extra kit – deck

cover, sports bar/cab protector

and flared wheel arches.

Sure, many manufacturers have

dress-up kits and add-ons in their

utes, but the Triton Black Edition

stands out without being over the

top in terms of looks.

Nothing has been

compromised in terms of ability

and function. Beneath the

bold exterior the Black Edition

is still the tough four-wheeldrive

double cab that will do all

that you would expect from a

traditional one-tonner.

Under the bonnet sits a

well-proven four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel engine.

It isn’t new, but long-term

development is one of the

benefits, and it shows. The

2442cc unit is smooth, quiet

and efficient. In terms of figures,

Mitsubishi rates it with 135kW

and 437Nm, both figures

developed at traditional parts

Mitsubishi also claims an

usage average. I didn’t put the

engine through too much hard

work so the Black Edition went

back to the dealership with an

average figure of 10l/100km

was helped by a thrifty 7/100km

I only ventured off-the-seal

for a short burst. The Hororata

River was running dry, as it often

does at this time of year, and

with a good solid base I tackled

a few humps and bumps just to

get the feel of low ratio working

and hill descent control. Ground

clearance at 220mm is generous,

while there is little underneath to

hinder approach and departure.

Inside, the Black Edition

gets all the GLS specification

goodies. Sure, there’s just cloth

anyway. All-up it represents a

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

good package and it will be a

tempting proposition for those

who want a ute with a difference.

One of my neighbours

purchased a Black Edition

late last year, one of the main

reasons he choose it against the

myriad of other utes was the

10-year driveline warranty that

comes with Triton. That is a very

reassuring element.

I don’t know that I would be

Black Edition buyer as I don’t

have much of a need for fourwheel-drive,

but a 2WD Triton

double cab would serve my

purpose well. I’ve long watched

Mitsubishi’s marketing campaigns

for Triton and I can report that

over the years there have been

many bargains in its line-up.

Today, the entry level model

lists at $32,990, that’s just one

example, and if you look at what

the Black Edition has to offer

it could well be deemed to be a

bargain as well.
