Restoration of Sumner park’s

‘shabby’ gates is on the cards

• By Samantha Mythen

THE HISTORICAL gates at the

St Leonards Park entrance in

Sumner will finally be repaired.

City council community

parks manager Al Hardy told

Bay Harbour News the city

council would report to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board on August 26

about possible steps forward for

their restoration, nine months

after it was first brought to their

attention.

He said the gates had been

maintained on a reactive basis

and were now “up for” a

funding renewal to address

repairs.

“It is possible to restore

the gates. We are currently

awaiting quotes for

restoration. The work will

entail cleaning off the paint,

repairing cast and wrought

iron components, treating

corrosion and repainting,”

Hardy said.

“This may or may not require

their removal from the site to

undertake the work.”

Community board member

Darrell Latham has voiced

his concern about the lack of

maintenance of the gates in recent

years.

future of Godley House site

residents may be able to enjoy

a beverage or two at a licenced

hospitality venue on the site of

the former Godley House in the

future.

Following discussions with the

city council, the Department of

Conservation has suggested part

of the Stoddart Point Reserve

might be able to be leased out for a

hospitality venture under section

73(3) of the Reserves Act 1977.

It said this may be a possibility

if the circumstances comply with

the Act’s requirements.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said council

staff will be working with the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board over the coming months

to “determine the next steps,

taking into consideration the

Department of Conservation

position.”

Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman Nathan

Graham said it had been 10 years

since the original venue, Godley

House, was demolished.

The association hoped, for the

community’s sake, “they could

“If we can’t get it back, it will

that the site had been made a

A temporary lease on the site,

In 2019, the city council held

a public consultation with community

them what they would like to see

at the reserve.

Feedback was diverse but an

overarching theme was the desire

to have somewhere to socialise,

Said Graham: “A licenced

No simple solution for

stormwater drains

• By Samantha Mythen

HEAVY RAINFALL this year

has meant the stormwater drains

at Sumner have had to be cleared

out on more than 20 occasions

to date.

City council head of three

waters and waste Helen

Beaumont said the outfalls,

which drain onto Sumner beach,

are cleared by excavators when

rain is expected. This helps to

prevent flooding in Sumner

village.

“The forecast is monitored

closely and we respond as

required,” said Beaumont.

The total recorded excavation

costs since November 2018 are

$72,929.

Over the 2020-2021 period, the

costs so far have been $26,860.

June and July costs are not

included, but these could add

approximately $18,000.

For the 2019-2020 period, the

costs were $26,943 and for the

2018-2019 period, the costs were

$19,126.

“While the costs are reasonably

consistent, is also worth noting

that the annual rainfall over that

period has been between 50-60%

of the typical annual rainfall in

Sumner,” said Beaumont.

DRAINAGE: Stormwater outflow pipes, Sumner Beach.

“As such, when a more

“typical” year occurs the

costs would be higher due to

more frequent rain events and

potentially higher rainfall.”

Beaumont said there is no

simple engineering solution for

preventing the drains from being

blocked due to dynamic sand

levels compared to the level of

the road and the drains.

“A number of years ago, the

level of sand was well below the

outfalls, it has been increasing

over many years and is currently

approximately the same height as

the road,” said Beaumont.

“The height of the outfall can’t

be increased as it would then

be higher than the point where

water enters the stormwater

network. At this point in time

responding to rain events

is appropriate.”

SOIL AND

HARDFILL

DUMPING

Deterioration ‘serious’

• From page 1

“Sadly, the gates have been left

to deteriorate and are in very

poor condition. They are in need

of tender loving care to bring

them back to pristine condition,”

he said.

“Paint has faded, the exterior

surface is pitted with rust and in

several places, the rust

has completely eaten

through the main

pillars supporting the

gates.”

Prior to his death in

June 2020, Sumner resident

Ross Clapp had

shared his concerns

about the gate’s “shabby

state,” with Latham, and asked

for his help in doing something

about it.

In response to Clapp’s concerns,

Latham had raised the

issue of the gate’s disrepair with

the board in October last year,

hoping to see action from the city

council to restore the gates or see

an alternative proposed.

“From my casual observation,

the gates will require considerable

restoration work to restore them

given the serious deterioration that

has taken place,” Latham said.

The park is actively used by

Sumner residents, with cricket

and rugby often played on the

grass area.

The Sumner-Redcliffs Historical

Society would also like to see

the gate’s repaired.

“They should not have been allowed

to get into that bad state in

the first place,” society secretary

Topsy Rule said.

“It’s just like your house, you

respect it and if it’s been broken,

you fix it.”

The park’s grounds were

remodelled, made larger and

opened in 1926. The

gates were unlocked

by Sumner Mayoress

Mrs Nicholson.

During the unlocking,

Nicholson

expressed a desire the

park would be a source

of health and happiness

for years to come.

“The gates are an excellent

example of that period in our

history,” said Latham.

In response to Hardy’s comments,

Latham said he was

pleased to learn that the gates

may be restored.

However, he remained concerned

about the lack of scheduled

maintenance previously

undertaken on the gates.

“To suggest that the gates are

‘’maintained on a reactive basis’’

is somewhat concerning,” he said.

“These gates have historical

significance for Sumner residents

and are part of our heritage. They

should be part of a scheduled

maintenance check programme. I

doubt whether the gates of Mona

Vale or the Botanical Gardens are

maintained on a reactive basis.”

Lookout fundraiser nears target

• By Samantha Mythen

THE SUMMIT Road Society is

now onto the home straight with

raising funds to build the John

Jameson Lookout.

The society applied for the

final $65,000 needed from the

Lotteries Environment and

Heritage Fund last week.

It has already sourced 80 per

cent of the funding required to

build the lookout over Lyttelton

Harbour, opposite the Sign of the

Bellbird in Kennedys Bush and

the Ohinetahi Reserve, from a

combination of its own money

and external grants.

The lookout is expected to cost

$340,000 in total.

In March 2020, the project

received $150,000 from a city

council endowment fund and at

the end of last year, it received

$50,000 from the JD Stout

Charitable Trust.

Just recently, in July, it

received $40,000 from the Rāta

Foundation.

Summit

Road Society

secretary Marie

Gray said

last year the

focus was on

the lookout’s

design,

Marie Gray

whereas this

year it was on

raising money to make the

project happen.

“We spent 2020 looking at

formalising the design in consultation

with lots of people in the

community and we also had an

engineering survey done,” said

Gray.

“The most work we’ve done

this year has been focused on

funding.”

She said the society hopes to

hear back about the Lotteries

fund in November.

“If that is granted, we hope to

start building the lookout early

next year, although there is still a

lot of planning to do.”

The Summit Road Society aims

to create an area where everyone

can enjoy the “iconic view” over

Lyttelton Harbour, as well as learn

about the area’s cultural

and environmental heritage,

said Gray.

It has been working closely

with Ngāti Wheke of Rāpaki

to incorporate the stories and

history of mana whenua, the

right of Ngāti Wheke to manage

the area of land.

FINAL

STRETCH: A

new lookout

proposed for

the car park

across the

road from

the Sign of

the Bellbird,

Kennedys

Bush, has

almost

reached its

funding goal.

The lookout will continue the

legacy of Harry Ell and the role

of John Jameson and the Summit

Road Society in protecting the

biodiversity of the Port Hills.

Harry Ell was a city councillor

and member of Parliament in the

early 1900s.

He was famous for promoting

Summit Rd and conservation

work around the Port Hills.

His grandson, John Jameson,

founded the Summit Road

Society in 1948 and the lookout

would be named after him.

Picnic table

shelter for

Akaroa

Recreation

Ground

• By Samantha Mythen

THE AKAROA and Bays Lions

club is gifting a picnic table shelter

to the Akaroa Recreation Ground.

It will commemorate the club’s

50th anniversary, which will be in

February, 2022.

However, it is hoped the shelter

will be installed before the end

of the year, ready for use over

summer.

The proposed shelter will be

built by the barbeque the Lions

club gifted to the grounds to mark

its 40th Anniversary in 2012.

The club approached the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

earlier this year with the proposal.

The community board approved

the venture on Monday.

Community board chairwoman

Tori Peden said: “It will be

another great resource for a

well-used area, especially for over

the summer months when the

community is out and about.”

It is hoped subsequent shelters

might be installed around the

Banks Peninsula as an ongoing

project by the Lions club.

Steve Hansen - The Legacy

The making of a New Zealand coaching great by Gregor Paul

Between the years 2012 and 2019, Sir Steve Hansen oversaw an era of such remarkable

success that it would be almost impossible to repeat. His 15-year career in the All Blacks

coaching team is the heaviest footprint in rugby history. Of the 210 tests he was involved with,

his team lost just 25 times. Of the 107 tests he served as head coach, Sir Steve accumulated

a record 4 World Rugby Coach of the Year awards and orchestrated 93 victories - a winning

percentage of 87 per cent, the highest of any All Blacks coach. Steve Hansen: The Legacy delves

into the highs and the lows that earned the New Zealand rugby knight a place in the pantheon

of world rugby coaching greats. Revealing and perceptive, the book uncovers how

Hansen dealt with the immeasurable pressure of leading the world’s most famous

rugby team; the tension created by being re-appointed specifically to win the Rugby

World Cup. Much more than a biography, in Steve Hansen: The Legacy, awardwinning

writer Gregor Paul tells the compelling story of the former policeman from

Mosgiel, his quest for world rugby dominance and his journey to coaching greatness.

Supercars

The Great Australian Sporting rivalry Story by Luke West

V8 Supercars is a great Australian sporting success story, still going strong for over a quarter

of a century. It was the first local race series to gain a mainstream national following,

catapulting the likes of Peter Brock and Dick Johnson to fame against the backdrop of

Mount Panorama, Bathurst. These days the sport draws huge crowds, attracts big-dollar TV

rights deals and a new generation of heroes have appeared battling over old territory, plus

a host of new street circuits, turning this Australian motor sport into a globally recognised

phenomenon.

The V8s have evolved into today’s Supercars Championship, creating household megastars

such as Craig Lowndes, Marcos Ambrose, Jamie Whincup and Scott McLaughlin. Supercars

gives detailed insight into how each and every championship was won, tracking the

development of the Supercars class between 1993-2010.

This comprehensive and absorbing account of a uniquely Australian sport is a must for any

race fan’s bookshelf.

Mental Fitness

By Paul Wood

The bestselling author of How to Escape from Prison, prisoner-turned-psychologist Paul Wood on

developing the mental strength and fitness to take on all of life’s challenges Getting and staying

mentally fit, just like getting and maintaining a high level of physical fitness, involves hard work,

effort, and consistency. Our level of mental fitness determines how effectively we can flourish

through adversity, realise our potential, and be happier with our lives. We all know about mental

stress (or we think we do). We’ve definitely all experienced it, and none of us like it. Yet this is not

a threat to be avoided. Mental stress is perfectly analogous to physical stress: it is the mind’s way

of telling us that what we are attempting to perform is challenging our resource. This is a catalyst

for growth, and a sign we are pursuing our potential. When we experience stress, we have a

choice: we can heed that signal and give up - after all, we’re meant to stay in our psychic comfort

zone all the time, right? In Mental Fitness you will learn how to: Increase your mental fitness, just

as you would increase your physical fitness Get closer to your potential by working proactively to

maintain your mental fitness Experience the right level of stress (this is what makes us get fitter)

Cope effectively for longer before you get fatigued or exhausted (it doesn’t mean you don’t feel

the struggle) Pay attention to the indicators of fatigue to avoid burnout and unnecessary misery.

In Our Own Backyard

By Anne Kayes

It’s March 2020 and Liza, her husband and two teenage children are at home in Auckland

in level-four lockdown due to Covid-19. Reflections with her family around the dining table

inspire Liza to reflect on another challenging time in history nearly forty years before when

the South African Springbok rugby team toured New Zealand. Casting her memory back to

1981, Liza recalls her life as a fifteen-year-old, including her first love, friendships, first-hand

experiences of racism, and what it means and what it costs to find your voice and use it. In

Our Own Backyard is a startling, confronting portrait of a society divided. Anne Kayes has

written a masterful YA novel that considers questions of human equality that are as pertinent

in the twenty-first century as they were in 1981.

A Woman of Intelligence

By Karin Tanabe

An exhilarating tale of one remarkable woman’s journey find her purpose, and herself, in

post-war America. New York, 1954. A Fifth Avenue address, parties at the Plaza, two healthy

sons and the ideal husband: what looks like a perfect life for Katharina Edgeworth is anything

but. As a single girl in 1940s Manhattan, Katharina was a translator at the newly formed

United Nations, devoting her days to her work and the promise of world peace - and her nights

to cocktails and the promise of a good time. Now the wife of a beloved pediatric surgeon

and heir to a shipping fortune, Katharina is trapped in a gilded cage, desperate to escape

the constraints of domesticity. So when she is approached by the FBI and asked to join their

ranks as an informant, Katharina seizes the opportunity. A man from her past has become

a high-level Soviet spy, but no one has been able to infiltrate his circle. Enter Katharina, the

perfect woman for the job. Navigating the demands of the FBI and the secrets of the KGB, she

becomes enthralled by her secret mission. But as those closest to her lose their covers, and

their lives, Katharina’s secret soon threatens to ruin her.

Both centres were originally

proposed for closure in the Long

Tsunami

warning

system

inadequate

BANKS PENINSULA will get

tsunami warning sirens installed

if a recommended upgrade of

Canterbury’s tsunami warning

system goes ahead.

Currently, there are 45 tsunami

warning sirens strategically

located along the Christchurch

coastline between Brooklands and

Taylors Mistake.

However, there are no tsunami

warning sirens in Banks Peninsula,

which could be at risk of

flooding in the event of a large

tsunami.

City council head of civil

defence emergency management

Rob Orchard said: “We have

updated the tsunami evacuation

zones for Christchurch and

Banks Peninsula in response to

[scientific] information as it shows

that flooding could occur further

inland than previously identified.”

It is being recommended that

the current tsunami warning

system be extended. The cost is

estimated at $3 million and there

is money in the 2021-31 Long

Term Plan for the work.

A decision will be made on

whether to proceed when the city

council meets tomorrow.

Vibrant photography club celebrates 25 years

ON LOCATION: The club has held regular workshops and field trips since 1996. including a portrait workshop at Godley House in 2003 and a trip to Castle

Hill in 2013, where club member Dorothy Shrimpton wasn’t afraid to get her feet wet (right).

• By Samantha Mythen

THE DIAMOND Harbour

Camera Club is celebrating

25 years of photography and

community this year, with an

exhibition at Stoddart Cottage.

Committee member Joan

Gladwyn joined the club six

years ago with her husband.

They attended a club workshop,

hoping to meet new people

in their community.

Since then, she has been on the

committee for more than four

years and has previously been

chairwoman for three years.

“Of course, my husband and I

have both improved at photography,

but the overwhelming best

thing has been all the friendships

we have made,” Gladwyn said.

“It’s a really lovely organisation

to be a part of for all the camaraderie.”

The club’s exhibition ‘Rebuild

Refocused’ features photos recording

Christchurch’s evolving

cityscape, captured during the

club’s annual field trip.

Committee secretary Tim

Cheesebrough has been involved

with Christchurch’s rebuild and

acts as the club’s tour guide,

sharing his knowledge and

insight into how the urban space

has progressed in the last decade.

The exhibition includes images

of new and old architecture,

vibrant street art, bright night

scenes and nature.

“The nice thing about this

exhibition is that the rebuild is so

important and affects everyone

so much,” Gladwyn said.

“Being able to show what has

changed is a really good thing.”

Gladwyn also said the exhibition

was a great opportunity

to show the community and

visitors what the club does.

“It’s a chance to show off.”

Currently, there are more

than 40 members, ranging from

beginners to accomplished professionals.

The club runs monthly

meetings with guest speakers,

workshops and field trips,

exploring varied photography

genres. It also produces a

calendar, with money raised

from its sale donated to the

Diamond Harbour Volunteer

Fire Fighter Brigade.

In the past, the club has

organised photography lessons

at Diamond Harbour School

and run a photo competition

for the pupils. Field trips have

included outings to Castle Hill

and Birdlings Flat.

In addition to ‘Rebuild

Refocused’, club members are

now getting ready for their

annual exhibition, held each year

at Orton Bradley Park during the

Spring Fair.

‘Rebuild Refocused’ will be on

at Stoddart Cottage until the end

of August.

Art for art’s sake – but it is also about

As the Sumner Art

Society gets ready for

its annual exhibition,

reporter Samantha

Mythen went along to

one of their weekly art

practice sessions to see

how the preparation

was going and chat

with the dedicated

artists behind it all

FIFTY-SEVEN years ago, a small

group of artists hosted an art

exhibition for the public.

The exhibition was so successful,

with almost all paintings

sold, that it has been repeated

every year since.

That small group of artists is

known as the Sumner Art Society.

The group’s current members

will host its annual exhibition

this weekend.

Rae Manson’s current focus is

creating abstract works of art.

Behind her are painted seascapes

of lighthouses floating amid

clouds.

Previously working in real

estate, Rae “had a break from art

for 33 years.” It had been something

she had practised since she

was a youngster and could grip

a pencil between small round

fingers.

“I promised myself that when I

retired I would spend more time

with my art,” she said.

Now, every Wednesday she

goes along to the-more-oftenthan-not

sunbathed Mt Pleasant

Yacht Club, perched next to the

Avon-Heathcote Estuary, to

spend her morning painting.

“In my five years of practice,

I’ve improved so much,” she said.

Kilmeny Keyse, the society’s

secretary, is working next to Rae

on a landscape.

“I often paint with oils. I like

its translucency and as it takes a

while to dry, you can manipulate

it.”

She often works with tools

such as palette knives to create

touchable patterns that literally

jump off the canvas.

Kilmeny has really only begun

to dedicate time to her art practise

since retiring.

CREATIVE RETIREMENT: Rae Manson (left) and Benita Dale McMillen are continually exploring different ways to paint

and create as part of the Sumner Art Society.

“I always wanted to go to art

school, but my parents thought

I’d end up a beatnik so sent me

off to study science.

“I love coming here now.”

Her two worlds have since

collided . . . at the yacht club she

dons a paint-splattered lab coat.

But the art society is not just

about creating and crafting. It’s

about collaboration and friendship.

“This group is a community

service. An awful lot of chat goes

on. People are not shy to give

opinions of each other’s art,”

Kilmeny said.

Rae agreed: “There’s always

someone around to ask for help

if you’re not sure.”

Just that morning Benita Dale

McMillen had been asking others

for advice on what colour to

paint a background. She asks me

too, wondering about the colour

of a window sill a cat sits on.

“White or a peachy pink?” she

asked.

She settled on a white, allowing

the eye to be drawn to

the bright colours of the scene

outside of the window.

“We have people who’ve

worked professionally as artists

as well as new beginners to the

practice. Anyone wanting to

join shouldn’t feel anxious or

worried. Everyone is welcome,”

Rae said.

“Since the earthquakes, the art

scene has lost so much,” Kilmeny

said.

“It’s why this group is so

important, and the fact it’s been

going for so long is so special.

We think it’s one of the oldest in

New Zealand.”

The art society was established

in 1959, with the first few meetups

hosted in its founder Reg

Holcroft’s home.

Classes in all matter of instrument

use were taught, from oil

painting to watercolour, pottery

to pastels, to wood carving and

china painting.

Well-known artists and art

teachers often visited to lend a

voice.

Membership was at its peak in

VARIED MEDIUMS: At the Sumner Art Society, Kilmeny Keyse (left) is working on an oil

painting, while Valerie Campbell uses watercolour to add vibrancy to hand-drawn native

birds.

the late 1990s with 200 members.

Now there are 40 members

and they come together each

week to work on their own

practice.

Daphne Russell said one of the

fun parts is that everyone comes

from a different background.

Valerie Campbell, working on

intricate hand-drawn and watercoloured

native birds, agreed.

“The club is great because of

the variety of people. They all

provide positive feedback and

can help point you in the right

direction. It’s all about the energy

here.”

You do not have to live in

Sumner to attend the group –

members come from all over

Christchurch.

Alison Lowe loves going to

take part each Wednesday.

“It’s the social side that makes

this group so good. You can

paint in your studio at home but

why would you when you can

come here every week to enjoy a

good chat,” she said.

Alison is currently following

a course by New Zealand artist

Judy Woods.

The group members are all

unique painters, influenced

by their own experiences and

desires. Walking into the yacht

club is like walking into an art

gallery, there are different styles

and different subjects.

companionship

Sandra Palmer takes along

her own table to the yacht club,

setting up the latest watercolour

painting she is working on.

“I love the way watercolour

does its own thing,” she said.

“I love putting pigment down

on a wet background and seeing

the way it moves across the

canvas.”

Sandra has always dabbled in

painting, especially when her

children were small and she had

the time.

“It’s a life-long practise,” she

said.

“It also provides the opportunity

to make new friends and to

travel.”

There is much variety in the

subject matter the artists choose

to focus on.

Her love of animals often

inspires Celia Morrison’s artwork.

Currently, she is painting delicate

whispers on a curious, big-eyed cat.

Daphne said she “loves

scenery,” a mountain landscape

with a glorious azure sky sits

behind her work table, reflecting

the Southern Alps seen in the

distance from the window of the

yacht club.

“As I see it, I want to paint it,”

she said.

Bruce Marks, now retired, but

previously a tradesman also loves

to paint landscapes.

“The places I’ve been and the

places I’ll go,” he said.

A Sumner scene is inspiring

his latest artwork, the canvas

he’s working on soaked in a deep

cerulean.

Bruce likes to diversify though.

He shows me an oil painting of a

monarch butterfly, sunset wings

over an acrylic background.

Benita Dale originally started

painting as she wanted to create

portraits of her family.

Now she paints an array of subjects,

inspired by her time spent

living both in Christchurch and

Tauranga.

Valerie has been experimenting

with suiboku-ga, Japanese ink

painting. She spent a year living

in Katashima, Japan.

“Painting is such a satisfying

practise. You don’t always like your

work, but time flies,” she said.

ENGINEER TO ARTIST: John Robb learned drafting during

his years as an engineer. He now uses those skills to

create intricate drawings each Wednesday. (Below) – Celia

Morrison’s (right) love of animals inspires her current work

Daphne Russell (centre) is working on a landscape.

“You can sit down at 9am and

next thing it’s 2pm and you’ve

forgotten all about morning tea

and lunch. Nothing else can create

that level of concentration in a

way that is not draining.”

Beth Cook is one of the longest-serving

members of the art

society. An artwork herself, she

wears a scarf featuring a kaleidoscope

of colours.

“I’ve been around since the

1970s,” said Beth.

“I come for the companionship

and you learn so much from the

other people around you. It’s a

wonderful group.”

The oldest member is in her

90s. Their youngest member is 18.

Geri Parawa said she had been

a member of the group for so

long, she could not even remember

when she first joined.

“I love standing in the middle

of the room and looking at what

everyone is doing,” she said.

“You can always learn something

from someone else.”

Geri is experimenting with

vibrant inks. Her subject matter,

a vase filled with radiant flowers.

John Robb, previously an

engineer, loves to draw buildings

and trains.

His fine-line drawings take

hours. He fills them in with

colour.

“It’s so relaxing being here.

And it’s a commitment. I come

every week.”

The view behind him is the

Ferrymead Estuary.

“The companies nice and I love

to watch the birds.”

VOLCANIC PAST: Aerial view of Lyttelton Harbour showing

the flooded volcanic cone.

Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum ref 14428.1

https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1135157 ​

AROUND 15 million years

ago (Ma) the Pacific Ring of

Fire became active in our

region and began to build the

backbone of Te Waipounamu

South Island – Ka Tiritiri-ote-Moana,

the great Southern

Alps.

In the sea to the east of

this subduction zone’s great

uplifting, new shield volcanoes

began to form and rise from the

surrounding waters.

THe first of them was the

Lyttelton Volcano that began

erupting 11 Ma, reaching

almost 1000m high around 10

Ma before explosively forming

the beginnings of today’s

natural harbour.

As the volcanic activity

slowly moved southeast away

from Whakaraupō Lyttelton

Harbour, it formed Te Ahu

Pātiki Mt Herbert Volcano

from 9.7 – 8 Ma and then

moved on to form the vast

Akaroa Volcano from 9 – 8

Ma. Volcanic activity began

to subside from around 7 Ma

ceasing altogether after 5.8 Ma.

It’s only then, with the

never-ending effects of erosion

along the volcanic valleys, that

we have the beginnings of the

weathered volcanic peninsula

that we know and love today.

Although if Cook had been

sailing at the time he would

have been correct in calling it

an island.

It wasn’t until 2 Ma that glaciers

began to grind the Southern

Alps down, with their rock

and loess slowly forming the

Canterbury Plains. And around

20,000 years ago those plains

finally reached the volcanic

island to form Horomaka Banks

Peninsula.

Readers respond to

last week’s front page

article on a plan to

reduce the speed limit on

Humphreys Drive from 70

to 60km/h.

Darrell Latham is concerned

that a safer speed on Humphreys

Drive will increase commuter

times for motorists into the

city.

I’m sure he’s done the maths.

The difference in commute

time between the two speeds

is around 10sec over the just

over 1km. Would motorists

commuting notice this on

their 11min commute to the

city? (I’ve seen the signs on the

causeway).

This of course assumes that

motorists instantly accelerate to

70km/h and can break instantly

to stopping at the Dyers Rd

signals if they’re red. The actual

increase in travel time would

be less than 10sec, and all to

improve safety for all road users?

Fortunately, safety experts

don’t wait for crashes to

happen before providing safer

environments, they’re fortunate

enough to have data on crash

rates in similar environments

all across the country and can

determine safe and appropriate

speeds without having to wait for

people to be killed or seriously

injured on every road.

It’s interesting that 10sec

additional for commuting

motorists (noting we have

ambitious carbon reduction

targets both locally and

nationally) is a concern, but no

issue whatsoever with a much

greater diversion for cyclists

through Charlesworth Reserve

(a far more sustainable mode

for those who are able). There’s

also the bus which is now on a

10min frequency at peak times. –

Darren Fidler

The speed limit on Humphreys

Drive should be reduced to

60km/h from the current

70km/h. I often see people

on that road exceeding the

speed limit and doing closer to

80km/h.

When I am cycling, cars

passing at high speed can be very

intimidating and the wind blast

from the vehicle particularly

large commercial ones can be

very disturbing. It is nonsense

to argue that reducing the speed

limit will reduce times into the

city as this stretch of road can

only be 600-700m in length and

ends in traffic lights which may

force you to stop. – Chris Irons

A definite no to decreasing the

speed from 70km/h to 60km/h.

They (council) have just spent

millions of dollars on cycleways

and reduced the speed in

Woolston along with businesses

losing customers to enable

cyclists to travel safely into and

out of town.

We travel Humphreys Drive

daily at peak traffic times. If we

are lucky enough to see a cyclist

and then they aren’t even using

the new cycleways – Debbie

Camp

If the city council is really

interested in cyclist safety along

Humphreys Drive they should

pave it in a material that doesn’t

flick up stones at cyclists and

other cars. The current speed

is absolutely appropriate given

the rural nature of the road,

no matter what the NZTA

pontificates.

The speed limit should stay

the same and if they’re really

concerned, extend the separated

cycle path along Humphreys

Drive and into Ferrymead,

there’s plenty of empty land for

them to do so. – Samuel Zelter

As a cyclist, I am delighted

that the council plans to safely

connect up the current cycle

path to town with the Ferrymead

Bridge and to reduce the speed

limit for cars.

The current on-road cycle lane

is narrow, partially obstructed,

often covered in gravel and feels

unsafe.

As a motorist, my initial

concern was the nasty feeling

of being slowed down when

dashing about my daily business.

Then I did the calculations and

found that the maximum extra

time this will take is 10sec.

Actually, I think going 10sec

slower into town is a reasonable

price to pay for the additional

safety. – Pat McIntosh

As a Ferrymead resident and

frequent user by cycle, 70km/h is

fine and safe.

The bigger issue in

transitioning to lower pollution

is the efficiency of existing

combustion engine transport.

Smooth constant velocity uses

far, far less fuel. Stop-start, speed

up slow down burns substantially

more fuel and brake pads and

tyre wear.

Traffic planners are causing

far more pollution than saving

accidents.

EVs in particular are extremely

susceptible to rapid battery

discharge from stop-start, hills

and headwinds. Plant shelter

along roadways. – Des Knowles

The options for walking a dog

off-leash in my neighbourhood

have been steadily decreasing,

though on the face of it there

would appear to be an adequate

amount of green space from a

non-dog owner’s point of view. –

Trudy McBeath

I obviously think this is a great

idea. I think Laurenson Park

(left) might work. People already

take their dogs there and it’s

partially fenced already.

It also has a bin for putting

poo in. That might keep the

neighbourhood cleaner.

I regularly pick up others’

offerings when walking my dog.

– Liz Wyllie

It is absolutely ridiculous the

council is even considering

not using the alternative route

through Charlesworth Reserve.

The park route is free from

vehicular traffic, sheltered from

the easterly wind, and does not

affect any precious bird activity. –

Alan Truscott

I am writing in response to

Darrell Latham’s opposition

to reducing the speed on

Humphreys Drive.

Counting a generous 1.3km of

road at 70km/h, the time taken

is 0.0186 h (3sf). At 60km/h the

time taken is 0.0217 h (3sf). The

difference between these times is

0.0031 h which is 11.2sec (3sf).

Personally, I feel that I will be

able to absorb this prolonged

commuting time when deciding

what time I leave for work. –

Lydia Duport

I think the speed limit should

remain at 70km/h, the road is

wide enough with no buildings

alongside and a great deal of

money spent on the cycle way. –

Graham Fear

I am for the speed limit being

lowered. Currently if you are

driving to Sumner from town

along Linwood Ave, it is 60km/h

along there, then 70km/h along

Humphreys Drive and then back

to 50km/h when you get to Ferry

Rd.

Having it 60km/h from

Linwood Ave to Ferry Rd/Main

Rd would be much simpler and

would also be safer for people

turning into Mitre 10 and the

shops nearby. And also safer for

cyclists.

Also I find it surprising that

board member Darrell Latham is

wanting to keep it at 70km/h due

to not wanting to increase the

commuter time.

Humphreys Drive is

approximately 1.5km long.

At 60km/h an hour, that

takes you 90sec to drive that

distance.

If I have done my maths

correctly, it would take 77sec at

70km/h.

Decreasing the speed limit

would therefore only add 13sec to

your journey.

I feel that time difference is

negligible in most people’s car

journeys. – Angela Williams

Keep speed the same please. –

Julie Riley

Diamond Harbour

dog park

Finally, a dog park mooted for

Diamond Harbour.

As a long-term resident and

dog owner of Diamond Harbour,

I am excited by the prospect of

having a local dog park.

My location suggestion would

be in the gently sloping paddock

at the very top of Whero Ave that

stretches through to Bayview Rd.

This provides magnificent

views of the harbour from

Sugarloaf to Godley Head. The

cost of adapting this area would

be minimal as it already has

reasonable fencing and water

outlets.

With signage and suitable

doggy-do facilities installed it

could be up and running in no

time.

This area is central to the

village so handy for most. –

A ‘gold mine’

of footwear

for all ages

Wednesday August 11 2021 Bay Harbour News 19

The Footwear Factory in Garlands

Road Woolston has been a part of the

Christchurch retail scene for more than

a quarter of a century. Over that time

thousands of people have flocked to the

store to find bargains and good deals in

quality footwear, ranging from children’s

shoes, sandals and school shoes to men’s

and women’s fashion and casual shoes,

outdoor and sports shoes, bowls shoes,

slippers, and safety footwear for the

workplace.

Launched in a small shop in Papanui,

the business later operated in Riccarton

for 12 years before moving to Garlands

Rd 17 years ago. Owned by Russ and Jude

Day, there you will find shelves lined with

footwear in a huge variety of styles and

colours for men, women and children – a

‘gold mine’ for shoe-seeking shoppers.

The footwear is brought in from all over

the world, as well as coming from New

Zealand manufacturers, and includes

ends of lines and other well-priced items.

Four main brands are carried – the

New Zealand made McKinlays range of

children’s school shoes, as well as mens

and women’s styles. The well-known

Hi-Tec range of outdoor footwear and

tramping, New Balance sports shoes and

a range of Keens sandals and outdoor

footwear. These known brands cover all

ages. New styles arrive almost every day,

so there are always more to try on, while

Russell and his second-in-charge Karen

are happy to advise on styles and sizing.

Located on a high-profile site at

47C Garlands Rd, (next to Flags

Tyres), the Footwear Factory is easy

to find, and there is off-street parking

available. They are open seven days a

week – 9.30am- 5pm Monday to Friday,

10am-2pm Saturday and 11am-3pm

Sunday. Phone 389-3431. Check out

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp cooking oil

150gm fresh spinach

1 tbsp butter

1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly cracked black

drained pasta to the skillet along

with the butter. Toss until everything

is coated in melted butter.

Turn the heat off.

Season with garlic powder,

nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper,

then toss to coat.

Volvo heads toward electric vehicle goal

AS A COMPANY, Volvo has

come out with some quite

extraordinary announcements in

recent times.

First it was the decision, in the

interests of safety, to speed-limit

all of their vehicles to 180km/h.

That I can understand, Volvo has

long been a safety pioneer and

that didn’t surprise me.

However, one decision that

has taken me by surprise is the

direction where it is heading in

terms of electric vehicles. The

company’s goal is to produce just

electric-only vehicles by 2040,

with 50 per cent of their models

to be electric-only by 2025, which

is a vision to become completely

carbon neutral.

I’m not totally convinced that

goal is achievable and I’m of the

belief the world will still be buying

cars with internal combustion

engines for many years to come.

That aside, the latest Volvo to

come my way was a another step

towards the electric revolution

– the XC40 Recharge, the title

obviously referring to the plug-in

charging capability. The XC40 Recharge

is a hybrid and that simply

means it has a petrol engine and

an electric motor, the combination

works traditionally, the

petrol engine powers the vehicle

and charges the batteries.

In turn, a 10.7kWh battery

pack powers the electric motor,

taking the load off the engine and

creating fuel saving benefits. Also,

the XC40 Recharge has a plugin

facility, you can charge from

home from a domestic three-pin

outlet, or using a type 2 cable you

can quick charge from one of the

many and increasing number of

stations scattered throughout new

Zealand.

As a driver you can also select

electric-only motion. At best

possible usage you could get

46km without the petrol engine

operating. That’s good enough for

my workday commute and the

batteries easily top up with fourhour

domestic charge, while for

interest’s sake you can travel up to

about 600km using petrol.

The XC40 isn’t new but it is

in hybrid form; the Recharge

is based on the floorpan of its

stablemates and sits in the market

at $85,900 which is just shy of the

Government’s rebate scheme, that

The Recharge model is listed with

figure is easily achievable; the

on-board readout was listing at

car back to the dealership.

In standard hybrid mode Volvo

claims a tempting 2.2/100km

result.

Not only has Volvo weathered

the hard times that claimed its

Swedish competitor Saab, but the

company’s vision for the future is

commendable, it has a direction

that’s now visible for the entire

world to see.

Volvo will be quids-in and will

have a hefty head start on other

manufacturers going forward,

while for those buyers who aren’t

quite ready for full electric, the

XC40 hybrid has the best of all

worlds.
