Finding happiness again after tragic loss<br />

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

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

AFTER JULIE Zarifeh lost her<br />

eldest son just 16 days after her<br />

husband died in 2017, Zarifeh<br />

told media she did not think<br />

that she would “ever truly be<br />

happy again”.<br />

But life is full of surprises and<br />

Zarifeh has found new love.<br />

She is engaged to be married.<br />

Zarifeh met her fiancé, Henare<br />

Howard via an online dating site.<br />

It was a chance meeting as<br />

Zarifeh had set her parameters<br />

of meeting someone within<br />

50km of Christchurch.<br />

Yet, every so often the dating<br />

site would send you a “what if”<br />

profile.<br />

The site asked Zarifeh:<br />

“What if there was someone<br />

who you matched with highly<br />

but they were based out of<br />

Christchurch?”<br />

Howard, based in Wellington,<br />

had already received the what<br />

if question and had looked at<br />

Zarifeh’s profile. He then sent<br />

her an email saying hello.<br />

at meeting<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

DIAMOND HARBOUR residents<br />

will be updated on the longrunning<br />

Godley House site saga<br />

on Monday.<br />

Deputy Mayor and Banks<br />

Peninsula city councillor Andrew<br />

Turner will talk to residents at the<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Community<br />

Association annual meeting.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

asked the Department of Conservation<br />

this week on whether the<br />

legal status of part of the reserve<br />

near the Godley House site could<br />

be changed to accommodate a<br />

licensed facility.<br />

Said city council acting head of<br />

parks Brenden Winder: “The next<br />

steps will be dependent on the outcome<br />

of the city council’s query.<br />

“We do not know the time<br />

frame for response.”<br />

Turner was a bit vague when<br />

asked by <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

yesterday what he would be telling<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> residents on<br />

Monday.<br />

Turner said: “I expect I will be<br />

talking about how an area could<br />

be made available to support the<br />

developement of a commercial<br />

business to meet the aspirations of<br />

the community. • Turn to page 5

POWER VINYASA YOGA<br />

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

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

yoga pose of the month<br />

Locust<br />

Pose<br />

Locust pose is a great way to strengthen your back. If your back is weak from<br />

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

strength in your back.<br />

1. Lie down on your front. You may use a<br />

folded towel or even a thin cushion to pad<br />

the front of your hips if you wish.<br />

2. Flex your toes down towards the floor and<br />

press your heels towards the back of the<br />

room.<br />

3. Engage your quadriceps on the front of<br />

your thighs and straighten your legs at the<br />

knee.<br />

4. Place your hands alongside you with your<br />

fingers pointing forwards, your palms facing<br />

downwards and your elbows pointing<br />

upwards.<br />

5. Engage the muscles on the backs of your<br />

thighs and in your buttocks. Lift your legs<br />

off the floor.<br />

6. Draw your shoulders towards the back of<br />

your body and press your chest forward.<br />

Lift as much of your torso off the floor as<br />

you can.<br />

7. Draw your chin towards your throat,<br />

lengthen the back of your neck and keep<br />

your head in line with your spine as you lift.<br />

Do not collapse your head down towards<br />

the floor.<br />

8. Hold this lifted position for a count of five.<br />

Gently lower to the floor. Turn your left ear<br />

to the mat and pause a few moments.<br />

9. Repeat the pose again. After the second<br />

locust turn your right ear to the mat.<br />

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

yourself to build tone and strength in your back and alignment and balance to your posture.<br />

Cemetery project makes progress<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

AFTER 10 years of<br />

campaigning, the Akaroa<br />

cemeteries improvement project<br />

is finally seeing progress, just in<br />

time for the 180th anniversary<br />

weekend commemorating the<br />

Comte de Paris settlers’ arrival<br />

to the area.<br />

The city council has cleared<br />

two trees which had grown<br />

through historic grave sites and<br />

it is currently repairing and<br />

restoring four damaged headstones.<br />

The headstones will be<br />

unveiled on Saturday during the<br />

anniversary event.<br />

The project has been driven by<br />

the Comte de Paris Descendants<br />

Group and Akaroa Cemeteries<br />

Group.<br />

Descendants group member,<br />

Linda Sunderland said:<br />

“Without our persistence and<br />

perseverance, I don’t think this<br />

would have happened. We are so<br />

grateful this is finally happening.<br />

“Akaroa is the first formal<br />

European settlement in the<br />

South Island. The people buried<br />

there made it happen. The site is<br />

of historical significance to New<br />

Zealand.”<br />

Settlers from France, Germany<br />

and Belgium travelled on the<br />

Comte de Paris ship for many<br />

months, arriving in Akaroa on<br />

August 16, 1840. Many of the<br />

BIG EFFORT: Members of the Comte de Paris<br />

Descendants Group and the Akaroa Cemeteries Group<br />

take part in one of the many working bees to maintain<br />

the town’s historic cemeteries.<br />

original settlers are buried in the<br />

town’s cemeteries.<br />

Over the three-day weekend<br />

event, hosted by the descendants<br />

group and the Libeau family,<br />

there will be guided historical<br />

tours around the town and<br />

cemeteries, as well as a dinner<br />

and dance.<br />

The Akaroa Museum is also<br />

showcasing an exhibition centered<br />

on the town in 1840.<br />

The project’s progress comes<br />

after the groups made another<br />

plea to the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board, asking for<br />

its continued support of the<br />

cemetery restoration at a board<br />

meeting in early February.<br />

Said Sunderland: “Over 10<br />

years we have been patient and<br />

persevered. We have saved the<br />

council money with our working<br />

bees and heritage work. Every<br />

thing they have asked of us, we<br />

have done,” she said.<br />

“We don’t know what else we<br />

can do.”<br />

In 2010, the groups had written<br />

to former mayor Bob Parker, asking<br />

if they could work together<br />

with the city council to restore<br />

earthquake-damaged headstones.<br />

What followed was a large<br />

amount of persistence and determination<br />

from the two groups<br />

with little action from the city<br />

council.<br />

The groups had wanted the<br />

headstones to be restored for<br />

the 150th anniversary, and have<br />

since carried out an assessment<br />

of 40 heritage headstones as part<br />

of their restoration project.<br />

The next projects for the group<br />

includes campaigning for the installation<br />

of a memorial entrance<br />

to the Catholic church cemetery.<br />

“The memorial entrance is a<br />

gift to the council, Christchurch<br />

and the Akaroa community,<br />

paid for by the descendants<br />

group,” Sunderland said.<br />

“It is a gesture of good intention<br />

and it’s a shame it has been<br />

so difficult to get it in place.”<br />

A further project is extending<br />

the cemetery for ongoing burials.<br />

The city council’s Cemeteries<br />

Master Plan expects future<br />

burial requirements of Akaroa to<br />

occur at Duvauchelle Cemetery.<br />

Sunderland said: “The lack of<br />

burial space and maintenance<br />

shows a disregard and disrespect<br />

for those buried there and their<br />

families.”<br />

Sunderland discussed these<br />

issues at the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board meeting last<br />

Monday.<br />

As a result the board will<br />

request that the city council<br />

continue with the development<br />

of the memorial gate, subject<br />

to the necessary consent<br />

requirements.<br />

The Bravest Voices<br />

A Memoir of Two Sisters’ Heroism during the Nazi era<br />

by Ida Cook<br />

This timeless memoir documents two sisters’ bravery leading up to WWII—a singular<br />

historical account that shines a light on one of humanity’s darkest hours.<br />

Ida and Louise Cook are two ordinary Englishwomen, seemingly destined never to<br />

stray from their quiet London suburb and comfortable jobs—Ida as a budding romance<br />

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

aria from Madame Butterfly sparked a passion for opera in the sisters that led to the<br />

formation of friendships with some of Europe’s leading singers and their network, many<br />

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

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

Through ingenuity, thrift and bottomless goodwill, the sisters eluded the suspicion of<br />

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

predicted such daring lives for Ida and Louise Cook—but that underestimation is exactly<br />

how they were able to save lives.<br />

Kiwi Success Stories in the Time of Covid<br />

By david downs Joe davis<br />

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

of unprecedented national hardship, however, there emerged incredible stories of hope<br />

and optimism. Businesses innovated and found new ways to create value, communities<br />

came together in new ways online, and families reconnected through time spent together.<br />

This book is a collection of those stories from across Aotearoa.<br />

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

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

Founders Joe Davis and Michelle Dickinson (Nanogirl) could have closed their doors<br />

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

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

staff headcount as the lockdown loomed, took on new premises, built a full production<br />

studio and went to market. They now have thousands of subscribers across 76 countries<br />

around the world, and are growing fast.<br />

Liftoff<br />

elon Musk and the desperate early days That Launched<br />

Spacex<br />

By eric Berger<br />

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

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

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

of commercial satellites in orbit, has pioneered reusable rockets, and in 2020 became<br />

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

race SpaceX is pushing forward into the cosmos, laying the foundation for our exploration<br />

of other worlds. But before it became one of the most powerful players in the aerospace<br />

industry, SpaceX was a fledgling startup, scrambling to develop a single workable rocket<br />

before the money ran dry. The engineering challenge was immense; numerous other private<br />

companies had failed similar attempts. And even if SpaceX succeeded, they would then<br />

have to compete for government contracts with titans such as Lockheed Martin and Boeing,<br />

who had tens of thousands of employees and tens of billions of dollars in annual revenue.<br />

Her Say<br />

Survivors of domestic Abuse Tell Their Own Stories<br />

By Jackie Clark<br />

In 2013, Jackie Clark launched The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to<br />

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

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

assisting hundreds of women with material needs and emotional support. Jackie has<br />

long dreamed of a publication that gives these women a voice. This powerful new book<br />

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

The collected stories chart their narrators’ lives and personal histories, through the lens<br />

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

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

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

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

storytellers themselves.<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I haven’t decided the exact<br />

content of what I’ll present yet.”<br />

The community is hoping to see<br />

a licensed hospitality venue built<br />

on the historical and culturally<br />

significant site.<br />

It was discovered in 2018, that the<br />

site had been made a recreational<br />

reserve by the Banks Peninsula<br />

District Council in 2006.<br />

That means the site can only be<br />

used for the purposes of a reserve<br />

under the Reserves Act 1977. The<br />

act defines the legal requirements<br />

around what buildings can be<br />

constructed and how the reserve<br />

can be used, which excludes a<br />

licensed venue.<br />

The temporary lease on the site<br />

which allowed the establishment<br />

of the Dark Star Ale House in<br />

2011, was a mistake<br />

by the city<br />

council and the<br />

lease had to end.<br />

The Banks<br />

Peninsula Community<br />

Board<br />

has been working<br />

with the city<br />

council attempting<br />

to change the reserve status.<br />

If that happened, a piece of land<br />

could be used for the construction<br />

of a building such as Godley House.<br />

Said Turner: “There is no<br />

reason, from looking at the site’s<br />

history, why a corner couldn’t be<br />

carved off.”<br />

Winder said in order for a<br />

licensed hospitality venue to be<br />

built on the site, the recreation<br />

reserve status would need to be<br />

revoked by the Minister of Conservation.<br />

In order for that to happen,<br />

there would first need to be consultation<br />

with the public, where<br />

the community could provide<br />

submissions heard by a city<br />

council hearings panel. The panel<br />

would summarise the submissions,<br />

the full city council supports the<br />

to the Minister of Conservation<br />

Desire to have somewhere to socialise<br />

Andrew<br />

Turner<br />

Two hundred and forty one<br />

submissions were received.<br />

The feedback was diverse but<br />

an overarching theme was the<br />

desire of the community to have<br />

somewhere to socialise.<br />

One hundred and thirty two<br />

people specifically requested a<br />

licensed hospitality venue.<br />

Currently, there is only one eatery<br />

within the village’s centre near<br />

the vicinity of the wharf, which<br />

often sees an influx of visitors.<br />

A report from city council staff<br />

was sent to the community board<br />

in September 2019. It recommended<br />

the establishment of a cafe, however,<br />

it noted it would be unlicensed<br />

due to the site’s reserve status.<br />

Sewage<br />

spills from<br />

manhole<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

A MANHOLE has been<br />

overflowing with sewage in<br />

Drayton Reserve in Mt Pleasant<br />

for the last five days.<br />

An Environment Canterbury<br />

incident response officer visited<br />

the site yesterday morning<br />

to assess the situation and<br />

environmental effects.<br />

ECan said it appears the<br />

flooding is not affecting the<br />

nearby stream.<br />

However, Drayton Reserve<br />

volunteers co-ordinator, Dave<br />

Bryce said sewage is flowing<br />

into Glenstrae Stream nearby<br />

and it has already discoloured<br />

a small pool of water at the<br />

top of the waterfall in the<br />

reserve.<br />

Bryce was told about the<br />

overflow on Friday by another<br />

volunteer. He rang ECan’s<br />

pollution hotline to report the<br />

event.<br />

Another reserve volunteer<br />

reported it on the city council<br />

website on Monday night<br />

with Bryce again ringing ECan<br />

to ask when the issue would be<br />

sorted.<br />

Said Bryce: “It is totally<br />

disgusting and unacceptable<br />

for raw sewage to be flowing<br />

into the stream. There’s a mess<br />

down the hillside which should<br />

be cleaned up and the stream<br />

should be flushed because of no<br />

diluting flow.’’<br />

An ECan spokesperson said it<br />

was understood the city council<br />

will fix the problem “as soon as<br />

possible.’’<br />

Contractor commissioned<br />

to remove graffiti poem<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE DARK and<br />

apocalyptic graffiti poem<br />

on a wall next to the<br />

playing field at Lyttelton<br />

Primary School is going to<br />

be removed.<br />

The confirmation<br />

from the city council<br />

comes almost seven<br />

months after Lyttelton<br />

resident Paul Dietsche<br />

first complained to the<br />

city council about the<br />

graffiti via their Snap Send<br />

Resolve module.<br />

A city council<br />

spokesperson said: “We<br />

are looking into why this<br />

request was not advanced<br />

and apologise for the<br />

inconvenience caused.<br />

“We plan to have this<br />

resolved within the next<br />

week.”<br />

Deputy Mayor Andrew<br />

Turner said an order with<br />

a specialist contractor was<br />

placed last Monday for the<br />

graffiti’s removal.<br />

There are 29 different<br />

methods of removing<br />

graffiti depending on the<br />

type of material the graffiti<br />

is on.<br />

From September 2020 to<br />

February <strong>2021</strong>, 6550 graffiti<br />

tickets were reported<br />

via Snap Send Solve for the<br />

Christchurch area.<br />

During this time period,<br />

80 tickets were marked as<br />

being in Lyttelton.<br />

The wall in Lyttelton<br />

has a Heritage One listing<br />

as it is part of the historic<br />

Lyttelton Gaol. This means<br />

a special process is needed<br />

to remove the graffiti.<br />

• From page 1<br />

A curious Zarifeh looked at Howard’s<br />

profile and liked what she saw.<br />

“I thought, ohhh, it could well be worth<br />

meeting Henare.”<br />

Howard works as a senior Māori<br />

advisor at Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion<br />

Agency, and they share a common<br />

interest in the health sector.<br />

Zarifeh was already due to fly up to<br />

Wellington for a concert and so they organised<br />

to meet on February 8 last year.<br />

Their first meeting over coffee turned<br />

into a nine-hour date.<br />

After their initial meeting, they shared<br />

a couple of weekend dates.<br />

Then the country went into lockdown.<br />

Not to be deterred, the couple spent<br />

their days working and then joined each<br />

other on Zoom, chatting while watching a<br />

movie together at the same time.<br />

Howard “wooed” Zarifeh, even from<br />

afar, sending her flowers and croissants.<br />

“We had a mutual interest in seeing<br />

where this would go,” Zarifeh said.<br />

Seven months later, Howard dropped<br />

down on one knee and asked Zarifeh to<br />

marry him.<br />

“The ironic thing is that Henare’s<br />

HAPPY: Julie<br />

Zarifeh and<br />

Henare Howard<br />

enjoying new<br />

found happiness.<br />

surname is my maiden name.”<br />

Zarifeh had no idea what the future<br />

would hold after the loss of Paul. She was<br />

perfectly content in her own company,<br />

open to new friendships, but she never<br />

thought she would be getting married<br />

again.<br />

“I feel very lucky,” she said.<br />

The proposal took Zarifeh by surprise but<br />

it was with no hesitation that she said yes.<br />

“It felt right,” she said.<br />

In January, they spent five weeks<br />

touring the North Island in a campervan,<br />

spending time with Howard’s friends and<br />

family in Northland.<br />

“I love the fact he has embraced our<br />

family’s loss of Paul and Sam as part of<br />

our story,” Zarifeh said.<br />

“He often has me in his ear telling him<br />

lots about them, and he has embraced it<br />

all, which is really lovely.”<br />

They are planning to move in together<br />

at Zarifeh’s home in Sumner.<br />

“I have a 15-month-old grandson and<br />

another grandchild on the way,” Zarifeh<br />

said.<br />

“There is no where else I’d rather be.”<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

WHISTLING Buoy, a<br />

family-owned winery and<br />

vineyard nestled into the hills<br />

surrounding Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>,<br />

has begun its <strong>2021</strong> vintage.<br />

Said managing director Neil<br />

Pattinson: “The grapes are tasting<br />

and looking really good.”<br />

The winery is hopeful for<br />

the year ahead after taking a<br />

blow in 2020 from the effects<br />

of Covid-19.<br />

Air New Zealand had<br />

chosen the winery’s 2016<br />

wild-fermented pinot noir to<br />

serve business class flyers on<br />

international flights through<br />

winter and spring of 2020. But<br />

the pandemic grounded the<br />

overseas fleet before it could<br />

happen.<br />

“This was an unfortunate<br />

setback we could have done<br />

without,” said Pattinson.<br />

“We are now focusing on<br />

our local and Banks Peninsula<br />

roots, represented throughout<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> in shops<br />

and supermarkets.”<br />

The harvested grapes will be<br />

transported to Waipara where<br />

HARVEST: Neil and Jill Pattinson tend to the vines at<br />

Whistling Buoy winery.<br />

they will be made into wine.<br />

Whistling Buoy began in<br />

2000 when its first vines were<br />

planted in an area which used<br />

to be a pony paddock and then<br />

before that, a sheep paddock.<br />

Said Pattinson: “We first<br />

planted the vines as an indicator<br />

to see if the site would<br />

produce good pinot noir, and<br />

the proof is in the pudding.<br />

We’ve been growing some<br />

exceptional pinot noir.”<br />

In 2013, it purchased Kokolo,<br />

a vineyard in Teddington, 3km<br />

away from their home block.<br />

From that moment, Pattinson<br />

said his family turned<br />

a hobby into a commercial<br />

business.<br />

It’s a family affair. Pattinson,<br />

his wife, Jill and their<br />

son, Chris, all help out with<br />

the vineyard. Chris studied<br />

viticulture and oenology at<br />

Lincoln University.<br />

The name of the winery was<br />

inspired by the marker buoy<br />

between Adderley and Godley<br />

Heads, marking the entrance<br />

to Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Banks Peninsula, surprisingly<br />

to many, has seen a<br />

viticulture potential since<br />

French immigrants settled in<br />

Akaroa in 1840, bringing vine<br />

cuttings from their homeland.<br />

Akaroa’s suitability for<br />

viticulture was confirmed<br />

in 1895, when international<br />

viticulturist Romeo Bragato<br />

visited New Zealand shores<br />

to determine the country’s<br />

ability for wine making.<br />

However, commercial<br />

wine production only began<br />

in the late 1970s. The first<br />

commercial vineyard seen<br />

in Canterbury was St Helena<br />

Estate, established at Coutts<br />

Island in 1978.<br />

“To the south east, Christchurch has two extinct volcanoes<br />

(though they wobble occasionally) which are broken up with<br />

bays, harbours, pockets of bush and farmland which has a<br />

sparse road network and a strong sense of isolation in parts.<br />

A fantastic area of exploration and a playground which I enjoy<br />

and paint, sometimes from afar and sometimes from within.<br />

I particularly enjoy painting the dry summer tussock colours<br />

against the blues and greens of the sea water and the low sun<br />

sparking off the water which deliver contrast and warm vibrant<br />

colours.<br />

I hope some of these paintings remind you of some adventure<br />

you have had on Banks Peninsula, the smells and tranquillity<br />

when you can sit for a moment to rest and enjoy the view.”<br />

Born in 1959 in Christchurch New Zealand where he lives<br />

and works, Philip works in oil, water-colour, dry-point and<br />

monotype. His immediate environment is Christchurch, where<br />

he lives, with its cityscapes, the Canterbury plains, the Southern<br />

Alps and Banks Peninsula - all sources of subject matter and<br />

Dealing with a double tragedy<br />

Grief on the Run is<br />

on the book shelves.<br />

It tells Julie Zarifeh’s<br />

story about losing<br />

her husband and<br />

son within 16 days.<br />

WHEN SUMNER’S Julie<br />

Zarifeh lost her husband to<br />

pancreatic cancer she never<br />

imagined that 16 days later she<br />

would also lose her son in a tragic<br />

rafting accident.<br />

Paul Zarifeh, died on November<br />

23, 2017, and his 27-year-old<br />

son Sam drowned while on a<br />

rafting trip with workmates on<br />

December 9.<br />

The family’s grief was immense<br />

and at the time Julie<br />

Zarifeh said she felt she would<br />

not “ever truly be happy again”.<br />

“To experience both ends of<br />

the grief spectrum in a twoweek<br />

period – the very sad but<br />

anticipated bereavement of Paul,<br />

but then the acute, tragic, shock<br />

loss of eldest son Sam – is truly<br />

indescribable,” she said.<br />

Just over three years have<br />

passed since the double blow<br />

rocked the family and Zarifeh<br />

has published a book about how<br />

she coped with the loss and<br />

moved her life forward.<br />

A clinical psychologist, Zarifeh<br />

embarked on a journey of “active<br />

grieving’’ and said once she had<br />

adjusted to the initial shock, she<br />

started setting herself goals.<br />

The first was a 450km cycle<br />

tour around Sri Lanka to raise<br />

money to give disadvantaged<br />

Kiwi children new bikes.<br />

Then, she trekked the 800km<br />

Camino de Santiago and ran the<br />

New York marathon on behalf of<br />

the Mental Health Foundation.<br />

Zarifeh’s book – titled Grief<br />

on the Run - was this released<br />

month.<br />

In it she reveals she was at a<br />

movie when her son died and she<br />

emerged to turn her phone on<br />

and find messages from a neighbour<br />

saying police were looking<br />

for her.<br />

She said she had a “real maternal<br />

gut instinct that it wasn’t<br />

going to be good news, and that<br />

it was Sam.”<br />

“I’d been feeling really weird<br />

all day actually, it wasn’t good,”<br />

she told NewstalkZB host Chris<br />

Lynch.<br />

The book canvasses the death<br />

of both her husband and son and<br />

Zarifeh reveals there was a <strong>24</strong>-<br />

hour period where she could not<br />

see any point in living her life.<br />

“I literally was curled up in a<br />

foetal position on the floor,” she<br />

said.<br />

“We really debated whether<br />

we had it in us to have another<br />

funeral . . . then the family decided<br />

that Sam did need to have a<br />

funeral … I was just lying on the<br />

floor listening.<br />

“I woke up the next morning<br />

and thought, ah, my gig – and I<br />

wanted to be the person that organised<br />

the celebration for Sam.”<br />

After she buried her son<br />

Zarifeh decided she was not going<br />

to let the deaths define her.<br />

She said while her husband<br />

was dying she was preparing<br />

herself for that.<br />

“I obviously didn’t factor in the<br />

loss of Sam, 16 days later,” she<br />

said.<br />

“So the decisions I’d made<br />

already in terms of deciding to<br />

go on the Camino walk etc, just<br />

took on a more poignancy and<br />

meaning.<br />

“Paul’s was a tragic but anticipated<br />

slow demise, so you grieve<br />

in advance … compare that with<br />

the absolute and utter shock of<br />

FAMILY: Sam Zarifeh (far left) with sister Kristi, Julie, late<br />

father Paul and brother Jared.<br />

an accident … instantaneous<br />

death, you’re trying to work out<br />

how to marry those two ways of<br />

that, and how I pulled it all<br />

Zarifeh said the book that<br />

chronicles her journey of active<br />

grieving had an element of tragedy<br />

but had also been described as<br />

“uplifting”.<br />

have laughter,” she said.<br />

She said she had the “perfect<br />

storm” of training, skill and tools<br />

from her career and work to help<br />

her get through her ordeal.<br />

Currently working as a consultant<br />

clinical psychologist,<br />

Zarifeh has investigated the psychological<br />

factors contributing<br />

to ‘broken heart syndrome’ after<br />

the earthquakes and has presented<br />

at many conferences.<br />

She is also working with<br />

survivors and family members<br />

affected by the <strong>March</strong> 15 terror<br />

attack.<br />

But she also wanted to pass her<br />

knowledge on to others – anyone<br />

who was struggling with grief in<br />

any way.<br />

She explained the theory she<br />

lived by and what the book was<br />

about.<br />

“The term active grieving<br />

doesn’t just refers to exercise – in<br />

my case I went pretty hard out,”<br />

she said.<br />

“Active is just staying moving,<br />

keeping moving, keeping active<br />

-whatever you do in your day-today<br />

life, keeping up with that.<br />

“Not withdrawing, not letting<br />

the grief become so all-consuming<br />

that you withdraw into<br />

yourself and stop connecting.<br />

“Doing activities of daily living<br />

that we all know are important<br />

and crucial for us to keep on top<br />

of things.’’<br />

Zarifeh said she was doing<br />

“pretty good.”<br />

“But that’s not to say I still<br />

don’t have my moments of being<br />

absolutely sideswiped by what we<br />

call a grief hijack, that can come<br />

out of the blue for no particular<br />

reason,” she said.<br />

“I continue to be extremely deliberate<br />

on a daily basis on how I<br />

conduct myself.”<br />

She said routine was crucial<br />

and helped her keep on track.<br />

Her day started with exercise –<br />

a morning walk or more recently,<br />

a cold water ocean dip watching<br />

the sunrise.<br />

Zarifeh said initially she was<br />

only going to write the book for<br />

her family but she decided to<br />

push forward after encouragement.<br />

“It became my job,” she said.<br />

“I wasn’t ready to go back to<br />

work at that point … and then<br />

it’s just grown into this thing.<br />

Zarifeh said there are five basic<br />

ways to well-being:<br />

• Connect – spending time<br />

with people who you strongly<br />

connect to, emotionally.<br />

• Give – giving your own time<br />

or resources to help others, unconditionally.<br />

• Choose what to focus on –<br />

focusing on the good things in<br />

life: past, present and future.<br />

• Learn – continue learning<br />

whether it’s a new sport, hobby,<br />

language or studying.<br />

• Be active – walking on the<br />

beach, swimming, skiing, running<br />

etc.<br />

Autumn equinox a time to<br />

reflect and contemplate<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE Stonecircle<br />

Interspiritual Community<br />

gathered together in<br />

Heathcote on Sunday<br />

to celebrate autumn<br />

equinox.<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

resident Michele Cherry<br />

who is a reverend of the<br />

group said autumn marks<br />

the time to plant seeds to<br />

harvest before winter.<br />

“These are seeds in our<br />

gardens as well as seeds of<br />

spiritual tools we can harvest<br />

to support us during<br />

the darker days of winter,”<br />

she said.<br />

The group created<br />

an ‘autumn alter,’ read<br />

autumnal themed poems<br />

and stories, and shared a<br />

vegetarian lunch.<br />

The equinox was on<br />

Saturday at 10.37pm. It occurs<br />

when the sun moves<br />

north across the celestial<br />

equator, marking the<br />

first day of astronomical<br />

autumn.<br />

Said Cherry: “It is a<br />

common feeling to not<br />

look forward to winter<br />

but it is a really valuable<br />

time to rest, reflect and<br />

CELEBRATION: The Stonecircle Interspiritual<br />

Community celebrating the autumn equinox.<br />

contemplate. To also be<br />

grateful, because without<br />

winter, we would not have<br />

spring.”<br />

Cherry shared the<br />

story of Demeter and her<br />

daughter, Persephone,<br />

an ancient Greek myth<br />

explaining the origin of<br />

the seasons.<br />

The group believes<br />

in spiritual growth and<br />

exploration. It welcomes<br />

new members whatever<br />

their background or faith<br />

tradition. The belief of<br />

the group is that there is<br />

a deeper experience of<br />

unity which lies beneath<br />

the different theological<br />

and spiritual beliefs and<br />

practices seen in the world<br />

today.<br />

“It embraces all the faith<br />

traditions as all have the<br />

central message of love,”<br />

said Cherry.<br />

The group celebrate the<br />

changing of the seasons<br />

every three months and<br />

also meet for a reflective<br />

gathering on the third<br />

Sunday of every month.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Coastal Pathway questions answered<br />

The Christchurch<br />

Coastal Pathway Group<br />

answers questions<br />

raised by members of<br />

the public at its stand<br />

at the recent Estuary<br />

Fest at Mt Pleasant<br />

Community Centre<br />

When will construction of the<br />

Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> section begin?<br />

The city council is project<br />

managing the construction of<br />

the pathway. It is hoping to get<br />

the tender process under way in<br />

May with the aim of beginning<br />

construction this winter.<br />

When will the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

section be completed?<br />

As with all major construction<br />

projects, the time frame for the<br />

build is hard to predict. However,<br />

the city council is hoping to<br />

have the construction complete<br />

by winter 2022.<br />

How will the pathway work at<br />

the section where the yacht club<br />

boat shed is under construction?<br />

The coastal pathway group<br />

made a financial contribution<br />

to the construction of the new<br />

boat shed, thereby securing a<br />

right of way over a 4m wide strip<br />

of the platform for the pathway.<br />

Ramps at either end will connect<br />

the deck of the boat shed with<br />

the pathway. We expect that<br />

this deck will provide a pleasant<br />

stopping point for pathway users<br />

to enjoy one of the most picturesque<br />

parts of the pathway.<br />

Will the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> section<br />

require a cantilevered platform?<br />

According to the city council<br />

traffic engineers, most of the<br />

existing road bed is wide enough<br />

to build a 4m coastal pathway<br />

as well as two car lanes and<br />

on-road cycle lanes. This will<br />

require some realignment of the<br />

road and speed limit changes.<br />

However, the section between<br />

the CYC Boatshed and Rapanui<br />

Shag Rock will be cantilevered<br />

in some places due to the limited<br />

road width available.<br />

For more detail on the new<br />

road layout and traffic management<br />

plan see:<br />

https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/<br />

consultations-and-submissions/<br />

haveyoursay/show/355<br />

Will there be toilets installed<br />

along this section of the pathway?<br />

At this stage there are no plans<br />

to install toilets anywhere on the<br />

Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> section. There are<br />

public toilets in Barnett Park,<br />

and the council is considering<br />

providing signage to direct pathway<br />

users there.<br />

How does the new cycle<br />

lane along Humphrey’s Drive<br />

work in with the Coastal<br />

Pathway?<br />

Currently there is a new<br />

section of cycleway being<br />

constructed along Linwood Ave<br />

to extend the Rapanui – Shag<br />

Rock cycle route. Once complete<br />

it will connect to Humphreys<br />

Drive via Charlesworth Reserve.<br />

This is a separate council project<br />

which also received “shovel<br />

ready” funding from central<br />

government. It will connect<br />

to the Coastal Pathway at the<br />

Ferrymead Bridge.<br />

•If you have other<br />

questions or would like<br />

to meet the team, join<br />

us at our annual meeting<br />

at 7pm on May 12 at the<br />

Christchurch Yacht Club.<br />

Simon Kingham will<br />

ESTUARY MATTERS<br />

The construction of Humphreys Drive<br />

The Avon-<br />

Heathcote<br />

Estuary Ihutai<br />

Trust is a<br />

non-profit<br />

organisation<br />

formed<br />

to protect<br />

one of New<br />

Zealand’s most important<br />

coastal wetlands. Each<br />

week, board members<br />

will discuss matters<br />

regarding the estuary,<br />

its rich history and what<br />

makes it unique. This<br />

week Bill Simpson writes<br />

about the history of<br />

Humphreys Drive<br />

YOU MAY have noticed the<br />

road works along Humphreys<br />

Drive alongside the Linwood<br />

Canal. This is another link in the<br />

city council’s Rapaki/Shag Rock<br />

cycleway to the city.<br />

We now accept that this road<br />

is a major route in and out of the<br />

city for bays residents.<br />

But it was not always so. Humphreys<br />

Drive was a latecomer as<br />

an estuary side road.<br />

Until the mid-1930s, Linwood<br />

Ave was a blind road which<br />

stopped at the estuary edge. The<br />

main route in and out of town<br />

was Ferry Rd.<br />

But in the Depression years,<br />

the council decided that relief<br />

workers could be used to connect<br />

Linwood Ave to the Ferrymead<br />

bridge.<br />

A local resident and developer<br />

Walter de Their offered rock<br />

from his quarry on St Andrews<br />

Hill and 2000 yards of rock were<br />

used.<br />

His land was also used as a<br />

base for the 70 or so workers,<br />

and for storing explosives.<br />

Another local businessman,<br />

George Humphreys, of Sumner,<br />

donated the use of two of his<br />

trucks along with drivers and<br />

free petrol.<br />

Humphreys was the founder<br />

of the wine and spirits merchants<br />

Fletcher Humphreys in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

He was also a director of<br />

the Canterbury Frozen meat<br />

Company and prominent in the<br />

Chamber of Commerce.<br />

He had a large estate near<br />

Sumner and also owned the<br />

land formerly occupied by the<br />

Zealandia Soap and Candle factory;<br />

that land is now part of the<br />

Charlesworth Wetland Reserve.<br />

Work began in 1933 and<br />

informally the road was referred<br />

to as either Estuary Rd or the<br />

Linwood Ave extension.<br />

But the name Humphreys<br />

Drive was officially adopted in<br />

1950 to honour the contributions<br />

of George Humphreys.<br />

Strength<br />

in numbers<br />

How we’re rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine<br />

We have secured enough doses of the Pfizer vaccine for everyone<br />

16 years and over in Aotearoa. Any vaccine’s strength is in numbers.<br />

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

It will give us more freedom in our daily lives, and more options for our<br />

whānau, our businesses and our country. Because when we roll up our<br />

own sleeves, we’re helping to protect all of us.<br />

Here are the key facts about the Pfizer vaccine:<br />

It’s safe<br />

It has been approved by our own<br />

Medsafe experts. It’s also already<br />

been used successfully all around<br />

the world by millions of people,<br />

and by thousands here in<br />

New Zealand too.<br />

It’s effective<br />

The Pfizer vaccine is 95%<br />

effective when you receive<br />

both doses.<br />

It’s free<br />

The vaccine will be free for<br />

everyone in the country. We have<br />

secured over 10 million doses of<br />

the Pfizer vaccine. That’s enough<br />

for all of New Zealand.<br />

New Zealand’s vaccination rollout plan<br />

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

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

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

NOW FROM MARCH FROM MAY FROM JULY<br />

Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4<br />

Border and MIQ workers<br />

Frontline workers and<br />

people in high-risk areas<br />

65+ and people with<br />

underlying health<br />

conditions or disabilities<br />

Everyone else<br />

aged 16 and over<br />

More strength. More freedom. More options.<br />

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

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

From tree removals to hedge<br />

trimming - no job too big or small<br />

WITH winter approaching, now is the<br />

time to consider maintenance of those<br />

out of control trees, bushes and shrubs.<br />

Because it’s important that this type of<br />

maintenance is done safely and efficiently,<br />

it is strongly recommended such jobs be<br />

done by a professional arborist. Special<br />

Branch Tree Care NZ based in Lyttelton is<br />

expert in all areas of tree maintenance and<br />

removal.<br />

Owned and operated by David Craig,<br />

David has over 25 years’ experience as<br />

an arborist and is a specialist when it<br />

comes to hillside work and rigging safety<br />

equipment.<br />

If you have concerns about a certain<br />

tree on your property, give David a call.<br />

He can carry out a thorough Tree Report<br />

outlining any health and safety issues such<br />

as deadwood, cracks, decay, weak branch<br />

unions, broken limbs, root problems, or<br />

simply just general poor tree architecture,<br />

and from here recommend what action<br />

should be taken.<br />

But David doesn’t just do tree removals<br />

at dizzying heights. He is a specialist in all<br />

areas of landscape maintenance including<br />

Formative Pruning - pruning of young<br />

trees to improve structure, health and<br />

form, Thinning - often recommended<br />

by David as the best course of action for<br />

mature trees in an urban environment<br />

followed by selective pruning to expose<br />

branch structure and allow more light<br />

through the canopy, Crown Reductions -<br />

reductions in height and crown diameter,<br />

and Hedge Trimming.<br />

Clean up is easy. David offers site waste<br />

removal, wood chipping and firewood<br />

chopping services.<br />

Black Edition keeps Triton desirable<br />

THE LAST SIX months have<br />

been busy for light commercial<br />

distributors.<br />

There have been several vans<br />

entering the market, along with<br />

a succession of new utes landing<br />

here.<br />

That’s no surprise, the buoyant<br />

ute or pick-up sector in New<br />

Zealand is following overseas<br />

trends, not only are they the<br />

practical load carrier, but such is<br />

their sophistication the traditional<br />

double cab ute is often purchased<br />

as the family vehicle of choice.<br />

In terms of what’s new -<br />

Toyota’s Hilux, Isuzu’s D-Max<br />

and Mazda’s BT-50 have all had<br />

a generation change. And I can<br />

report that each of these models<br />

are worthy frontrunners.<br />

However, there’s one other<br />

model that is well represented in<br />

the market and that’s Mitsubishi’s<br />

Triton. Its generational change is<br />

a little out of kilter with the others<br />

but Mitsubishi has upped the ante<br />

as well, there’s a new dress-up<br />

model in the line-up – the Black<br />

Edition. As in the test car’s case, it<br />

was all black, but there are three<br />

other colours available.<br />

Based around the Triton GLS,<br />

the Black Edition is yet another<br />

example of Mitsubishi’s value<br />

pricing. Listing at around $60,000<br />

in the books, it’s available now on<br />

special offer at $47k. Bearing in<br />

mind that the evaluation car had<br />

around $8000 of extra kit – deck<br />

cover, sports bar/cab protector<br />

and flared wheel arches.<br />

Sure, many manufacturers have<br />

dress-up kits and add-ons in their<br />

utes, but the Triton Black Edition<br />

stands out without being over the<br />

top in terms of looks.<br />

Nothing has been<br />

compromised in terms of ability<br />

and function. Beneath the<br />

bold exterior the Black Edition<br />

is still the tough four-wheeldrive<br />

double cab that will do all<br />

that you would expect from a<br />

traditional one-tonner.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a<br />

well-proven four-cylinder<br />

turbocharged diesel engine.<br />

It isn’t new, but long-term<br />

development is one of the<br />

benefits, and it shows. The<br />

<strong>24</strong>42cc unit is smooth, quiet<br />

and efficient. In terms of figures,<br />

Mitsubishi rates it with 135kW<br />

and 437Nm, both figures<br />

developed at traditional parts<br />

MITSUBISHI TRITON BLACK EDITION: Comes in black or<br />

three other colours.<br />

of the rev band – 3500rpm and<br />

2500rpm respectively.<br />

Mitsubishi also claims an<br />

8.6l/100km combined cycle fuel<br />

usage average. I didn’t put the<br />

engine through too much hard<br />

work so the Black Edition went<br />

back to the dealership with an<br />

average figure of 10l/100km<br />

showing on the readout. That<br />

was helped by a thrifty 7/100km<br />

instantaneous figure at 100km/h.<br />

Drive is sent to the rear wheels<br />

through a six-speed automatic<br />

transmission. Not only are the<br />

ratios arranged well for the<br />

multitude of tasks the Triton<br />

would be asked to perform in<br />

its lifecycle, but the gears shift<br />

smoothly and are almost quickshifting.<br />

Of course, the driver can<br />

sequentially shift gears manually<br />

if desired through the centre<br />

console lever. Four-wheel-drive<br />

is manipulated by a centrallylocated<br />

dial and there are the usual<br />

selections, low ratio for crawl<br />

speed over rough ground and low<br />

grip surfaces, and high ratio for<br />

less demanding conditions.<br />

I only ventured off-the-seal<br />

for a short burst. The Hororata<br />

River was running dry, as it often<br />

does at this time of year, and<br />

with a good solid base I tackled<br />

a few humps and bumps just to<br />

get the feel of low ratio working<br />

and hill descent control. Ground<br />

clearance at 220mm is generous,<br />

while there is little underneath to<br />

hinder approach and departure.<br />

Inside, the Black Edition<br />

gets all the GLS specification<br />

goodies. Sure, there’s just cloth<br />

trim, but that’s far my preference<br />

anyway. All-up it represents a<br />

• Price – Mitsubishi Triton<br />

Black Edition, $47,000<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

<strong>24</strong>42cc, 135kW, 437Nm,<br />

six-speed automatic<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

11sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km<br />

good package and it will be a<br />

tempting proposition for those<br />

who want a ute with a difference.<br />

One of my neighbours<br />

purchased a Black Edition<br />

late last year, one of the main<br />

reasons he choose it against the<br />

myriad of other utes was the<br />

10-year driveline warranty that<br />

comes with Triton. That is a very<br />

reassuring element.<br />

I don’t know that I would be<br />

Black Edition buyer as I don’t<br />

have much of a need for fourwheel-drive,<br />

but a 2WD Triton<br />

double cab would serve my<br />

purpose well. I’ve long watched<br />

Mitsubishi’s marketing campaigns<br />

for Triton and I can report that<br />

over the years there have been<br />

many bargains in its line-up.<br />

Today, the entry level model<br />

lists at $32,990, that’s just one<br />

example, and if you look at what<br />

the Black Edition has to offer<br />

it could well be deemed to be a<br />

bargain as well.<br />
