Restoration of Sumner park’s<br />

‘shabby’ gates is on the cards<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE HISTORICAL gates at the<br />

St Leonards Park entrance in<br />

Sumner will finally be repaired.<br />

City council community<br />

parks manager Al Hardy told<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News the city<br />

council would report to the<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board on <strong>August</strong> 26<br />

about possible steps forward for<br />

their restoration, nine months<br />

after it was first brought to their<br />

attention.<br />

He said the gates had been<br />

maintained on a reactive basis<br />

and were now “up for” a<br />

funding renewal to address<br />

repairs.<br />

“It is possible to restore<br />

the gates. We are currently<br />

awaiting quotes for<br />

restoration. The work will<br />

entail cleaning off the paint,<br />

repairing cast and wrought<br />

iron components, treating<br />

corrosion and repainting,”<br />

Hardy said.<br />

“This may or may not require<br />

their removal from the site to<br />

undertake the work.”<br />

Community board member<br />

Darrell Latham has voiced<br />

his concern about the lack of<br />

maintenance of the gates in recent<br />

years.<br />

In Brief<br />

future of Godley House site<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

DIAMOND HARBOUR<br />

residents may be able to enjoy<br />

a beverage or two at a licenced<br />

hospitality venue on the site of<br />

the former Godley House in the<br />

future.<br />

Following discussions with the<br />

city council, the Department of<br />

Conservation has suggested part<br />

of the Stoddart Point Reserve<br />

might be able to be leased out for a<br />

hospitality venture under section<br />

73(3) of the Reserves Act 1977.<br />

It said this may be a possibility<br />

if the circumstances comply with<br />

the Act’s requirements.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge said council<br />

staff will be working with the<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board over the coming months<br />

to “determine the next steps,<br />

taking into consideration the<br />

Department of Conservation<br />

position.”<br />

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

Association chairman Nathan<br />

Graham said it had been 10 years<br />

since the original venue, Godley<br />

House, was demolished.<br />

The association hoped, for the<br />

community’s sake, “they could<br />

get some sense of restoration of<br />

DEMOLISHED: The former Godley House.<br />

what they had lost during the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

“We lost a really important<br />

resource and there has been no<br />

indication on whether we could<br />

ever get that back until now,” he<br />

said.<br />

“If we can’t get it back, it will<br />

ultimately be a huge loss for the<br />

community.”<br />

In 2018, it was discovered<br />

that the site had been made a<br />

recreational reserve by the Banks<br />

Peninsula District Council<br />

in 2006.<br />

This means the site can only<br />

be used for the purposes of a<br />

reserve under the 1977 Reserves<br />

Act. The Act defines the legal<br />

excludes a licensed venue.<br />

A temporary lease on the site,<br />

which allowed for the establishment<br />

of the Dark Star Ale House<br />

in 20<strong>11</strong>, was a mistake by the city<br />

council and the lease had to end.<br />

The Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board has since been<br />

working with the city council<br />

to attempt to change the reserve<br />

status or see what other options<br />

are available.<br />

Graham said the community<br />

association had been campaigning<br />

for a revokation of the status.<br />

said.<br />

“We’ve been working towards<br />

In 2019, the city council held<br />

a public consultation with community<br />

members, including Diamond<br />

them what they would like to see<br />

at the reserve.<br />

Feedback was diverse but an<br />

overarching theme was the desire<br />

to have somewhere to socialise,<br />

with 132 people specifically<br />

requesting a licenced venue.<br />

Said Graham: “A licenced<br />

No simple solution for<br />

stormwater drains<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

HEAVY RAINFALL this year<br />

has meant the stormwater drains<br />

at Sumner have had to be cleared<br />

out on more than 20 occasions<br />

to date.<br />

City council head of three<br />

waters and waste Helen<br />

Beaumont said the outfalls,<br />

which drain onto Sumner beach,<br />

are cleared by excavators when<br />

rain is expected. This helps to<br />

prevent flooding in Sumner<br />

village.<br />

“The forecast is monitored<br />

closely and we respond as<br />

required,” said Beaumont.<br />

The total recorded excavation<br />

costs since November 2018 are<br />

$72,929.<br />

Over the 2020-<strong>2021</strong> period, the<br />

costs so far have been $26,860.<br />

June and July costs are not<br />

included, but these could add<br />

approximately $18,000.<br />

For the 2019-2020 period, the<br />

costs were $26,943 and for the<br />

2018-2019 period, the costs were<br />

$19,126.<br />

“While the costs are reasonably<br />

consistent, is also worth noting<br />

that the annual rainfall over that<br />

period has been between 50-60%<br />

of the typical annual rainfall in<br />

Sumner,” said Beaumont.<br />

DRAINAGE: Stormwater outflow pipes, Sumner Beach.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​<br />

“As such, when a more<br />

“typical” year occurs the<br />

costs would be higher due to<br />

more frequent rain events and<br />

potentially higher rainfall.”<br />

Beaumont said there is no<br />

simple engineering solution for<br />

preventing the drains from being<br />

blocked due to dynamic sand<br />

levels compared to the level of<br />

the road and the drains.<br />

“A number of years ago, the<br />

level of sand was well below the<br />

outfalls, it has been increasing<br />

over many years and is currently<br />

approximately the same height as<br />

the road,” said Beaumont.<br />

“The height of the outfall can’t<br />

be increased as it would then<br />

be higher than the point where<br />

water enters the stormwater<br />

network. At this point in time<br />

responding to rain events<br />

is appropriate.”<br />

DUMPING<br />

Deterioration ‘serious’<br />

• From page 1<br />

“Sadly, the gates have been left<br />

to deteriorate and are in very<br />

poor condition. They are in need<br />

of tender loving care to bring<br />

them back to pristine condition,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Paint has faded, the exterior<br />

surface is pitted with rust and in<br />

several places, the rust<br />

has completely eaten<br />

through the main<br />

pillars supporting the<br />

gates.”<br />

Prior to his death in<br />

June 2020, Sumner resident<br />

Ross Clapp had<br />

shared his concerns<br />

about the gate’s “shabby<br />

state,” with Latham, and asked<br />

for his help in doing something<br />

about it.<br />

In response to Clapp’s concerns,<br />

Latham had raised the<br />

issue of the gate’s disrepair with<br />

the board in October last year,<br />

hoping to see action from the city<br />

council to restore the gates or see<br />

an alternative proposed.<br />

“From my casual observation,<br />

the gates will require considerable<br />

restoration work to restore them<br />

given the serious deterioration that<br />

has taken place,” Latham said.<br />

The park is actively used by<br />

Sumner residents, with cricket<br />

and rugby often played on the<br />

grass area.<br />

The Sumner-Redcliffs Historical<br />

Society would also like to see<br />

the gate’s repaired.<br />

“They should not have been allowed<br />

to get into that bad state in<br />

the first place,” society secretary<br />

Topsy Rule said.<br />

“It’s just like your house, you<br />

respect it and if it’s been broken,<br />

you fix it.”<br />

The park’s grounds were<br />

remodelled, made larger and<br />

opened in 1926. The<br />

gates were unlocked<br />

by Sumner Mayoress<br />

Mrs Nicholson.<br />

During the unlocking,<br />

Nicholson<br />

expressed a desire the<br />

park would be a source<br />

of health and happiness<br />

for years to come.<br />

“The gates are an excellent<br />

example of that period in our<br />

history,” said Latham.<br />

In response to Hardy’s comments,<br />

Latham said he was<br />

pleased to learn that the gates<br />

may be restored.<br />

However, he remained concerned<br />

about the lack of scheduled<br />

maintenance previously<br />

undertaken on the gates.<br />

“To suggest that the gates are<br />

‘’maintained on a reactive basis’’<br />

is somewhat concerning,” he said.<br />

“These gates have historical<br />

significance for Sumner residents<br />

and are part of our heritage. They<br />

should be part of a scheduled<br />

maintenance check programme. I<br />

doubt whether the gates of Mona<br />

Vale or the Botanical Gardens are<br />

maintained on a reactive basis.”<br />

Lookout fundraiser nears target<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE SUMMIT Road Society is<br />

now onto the home straight with<br />

raising funds to build the John<br />

Jameson Lookout.<br />

The society applied for the<br />

final $65,000 needed from the<br />

Lotteries Environment and<br />

Heritage Fund last week.<br />

It has already sourced 80 per<br />

cent of the funding required to<br />

build the lookout over Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>, opposite the Sign of the<br />

Bellbird in Kennedys Bush and<br />

the Ohinetahi Reserve, from a<br />

combination of its own money<br />

and external grants.<br />

The lookout is expected to cost<br />

$340,000 in total.<br />

In March 2020, the project<br />

received $150,000 from a city<br />

council endowment fund and at<br />

the end of last year, it received<br />

$50,000 from the JD Stout<br />

Charitable Trust.<br />

Just recently, in July, it<br />

received $40,000 from the Rāta<br />

Foundation.<br />

Summit<br />

Road Society<br />

secretary Marie<br />

Gray said<br />

last year the<br />

focus was on<br />

the lookout’s<br />

design,<br />

Marie Gray<br />

whereas this<br />

year it was on<br />

raising money to make the<br />

project happen.<br />

“We spent 2020 looking at<br />

formalising the design in consultation<br />

with lots of people in the<br />

community and we also had an<br />

engineering survey done,” said<br />

Gray.<br />

“The most work we’ve done<br />

this year has been focused on<br />

funding.”<br />

She said the society hopes to<br />

hear back about the Lotteries<br />

fund in November.<br />

“If that is granted, we hope to<br />

start building the lookout early<br />

next year, although there is still a<br />

lot of planning to do.”<br />

The Summit Road Society aims<br />

to create an area where everyone<br />

can enjoy the “iconic view” over<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>, as well as learn<br />

about the area’s cultural<br />

and environmental heritage,<br />

said Gray.<br />

It has been working closely<br />

with Ngāti Wheke of Rāpaki<br />

to incorporate the stories and<br />

history of mana whenua, the<br />

right of Ngāti Wheke to manage<br />

the area of land.<br />

FINAL<br />

STRETCH: A<br />

new lookout<br />

proposed for<br />

the car park<br />

across the<br />

road from<br />

the Sign of<br />

the Bellbird,<br />

Kennedys<br />

Bush, has<br />

almost<br />

reached its<br />

funding goal.<br />

The lookout will continue the<br />

legacy of Harry Ell and the role<br />

of John Jameson and the Summit<br />

Road Society in protecting the<br />

biodiversity of the Port Hills.<br />

Harry Ell was a city councillor<br />

and member of Parliament in the<br />

early 1900s.<br />

He was famous for promoting<br />

Summit Rd and conservation<br />

work around the Port Hills.<br />

His grandson, John Jameson,<br />

founded the Summit Road<br />

Society in 1948 and the lookout<br />

would be named after him.<br />

Picnic table<br />

shelter for<br />

Akaroa<br />

Recreation<br />

Ground<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE AKAROA and <strong>Bay</strong>s Lions<br />

club is gifting a picnic table shelter<br />

to the Akaroa Recreation Ground.<br />

It will commemorate the club’s<br />

50th anniversary, which will be in<br />

February, 2022.<br />

However, it is hoped the shelter<br />

will be installed before the end<br />

of the year, ready for use over<br />

summer.<br />

The proposed shelter will be<br />

built by the barbeque the Lions<br />

club gifted to the grounds to mark<br />

its 40th Anniversary in 2012.<br />

The club approached the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

earlier this year with the proposal.<br />

The community board approved<br />

the venture on Monday.<br />

Community board chairwoman<br />

Tori Peden said: “It will be<br />

another great resource for a<br />

well-used area, especially for over<br />

the summer months when the<br />

community is out and about.”<br />

It is hoped subsequent shelters<br />

might be installed around the<br />

Banks Peninsula as an ongoing<br />

project by the Lions club.<br />

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

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

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

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

into the highs and the lows that earned the New Zealand rugby knight a place in the pantheon<br />

of world rugby coaching greats. Revealing and perceptive, the book uncovers how<br />

Hansen dealt with the immeasurable pressure of leading the world’s most famous<br />

rugby team; the tension created by being re-appointed specifically to win the Rugby<br />

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

writer Gregor Paul tells the compelling story of the former policeman from<br />

Mosgiel, his quest for world rugby dominance and his journey to coaching greatness.<br />

Supercars<br />

The Great Australian Sporting rivalry Story by Luke West<br />

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

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

catapulting the likes of Peter Brock and Dick Johnson to fame against the backdrop of<br />

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

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

a host of new street circuits, turning this Australian motor sport into a globally recognised<br />

phenomenon.<br />

The V8s have evolved into today’s Supercars Championship, creating household megastars<br />

such as Craig Lowndes, Marcos Ambrose, Jamie Whincup and Scott McLaughlin. Supercars<br />

gives detailed insight into how each and every championship was won, tracking the<br />

development of the Supercars class between 1993-2010.<br />

This comprehensive and absorbing account of a uniquely Australian sport is a must for any<br />

race fan’s bookshelf.<br />

Mental Fitness<br />

By Paul Wood<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

as you would increase your physical fitness Get closer to your potential by working proactively to<br />

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

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

the struggle) Pay attention to the indicators of fatigue to avoid burnout and unnecessary misery.<br />

In Our Own Backyard<br />

By Anne Kayes<br />

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

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

inspire Liza to reflect on another challenging time in history nearly forty years before when<br />

the South African Springbok rugby team toured New Zealand. Casting her memory back to<br />

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

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

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

written a masterful YA novel that considers questions of human equality that are as pertinent<br />

in the twenty-first century as they were in 1981.<br />

A Woman of Intelligence<br />

By Karin Tanabe<br />

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

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

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

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

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

to cocktails and the promise of a good time. Now the wife of a beloved pediatric surgeon<br />

and heir to a shipping fortune, Katharina is trapped in a gilded cage, desperate to escape<br />

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

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

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

perfect woman for the job. Navigating the demands of the FBI and the secrets of the KGB, she<br />

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

their lives, Katharina’s secret soon threatens to ruin her.<br />

system<br />

inadequate<br />

BANKS PENINSULA will get<br />

tsunami warning sirens installed<br />

if a recommended upgrade of<br />

Canterbury’s tsunami warning<br />

system goes ahead.<br />

Currently, there are 45 tsunami<br />

warning sirens strategically<br />

located along the Christchurch<br />

coastline between Brooklands and<br />

Taylors Mistake.<br />

However, there are no tsunami<br />

warning sirens in Banks Peninsula,<br />

updated the tsunami evacuation<br />

zones for Christchurch and<br />

[scientific] information as it shows<br />

that flooding could occur further<br />

inland than previously identified.”<br />

Vibrant photography club celebrates 25 years<br />

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<br />

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

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE DIAMOND <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Camera Club is celebrating<br />

25 years of photography and<br />

community this year, with an<br />

exhibition at Stoddart Cottage.<br />

Committee member Joan<br />

Gladwyn joined the club six<br />

years ago with her husband.<br />

They attended a club workshop,<br />

hoping to meet new people<br />

in their community.<br />

Since then, she has been on the<br />

committee for more than four<br />

years and has previously been<br />

chairwoman for three years.<br />

“Of course, my husband and I<br />

have both improved at photography,<br />

but the overwhelming best<br />

thing has been all the friendships<br />

we have made,” Gladwyn said.<br />

“It’s a really lovely organisation<br />

to be a part of for all the camaraderie.”<br />

The club’s exhibition ‘Rebuild<br />

Refocused’ features photos recording<br />

Christchurch’s evolving<br />

cityscape, captured during the<br />

club’s annual field trip.<br />

Committee secretary Tim<br />

Cheesebrough has been involved<br />

with Christchurch’s rebuild and<br />

acts as the club’s tour guide,<br />

sharing his knowledge and<br />

insight into how the urban space<br />

has progressed in the last decade.<br />

The exhibition includes images<br />

of new and old architecture,<br />

vibrant street art, bright night<br />

scenes and nature.<br />

“The nice thing about this<br />

exhibition is that the rebuild is so<br />

important and affects everyone<br />

so much,” Gladwyn said.<br />

“Being able to show what has<br />

changed is a really good thing.”<br />

Gladwyn also said the exhibition<br />

was a great opportunity<br />

to show the community and<br />

visitors what the club does.<br />

“It’s a chance to show off.”<br />

Currently, there are more<br />

than 40 members, ranging from<br />

beginners to accomplished professionals.<br />

The club runs monthly<br />

meetings with guest speakers,<br />

workshops and field trips,<br />

exploring varied photography<br />

genres. It also produces a<br />

calendar, with money raised<br />

from its sale donated to the<br />

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

Fire Fighter Brigade.<br />

In the past, the club has<br />

organised photography lessons<br />

at Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> School<br />

and run a photo competition<br />

for the pupils. Field trips have<br />

included outings to Castle Hill<br />

and Birdlings Flat.<br />

In addition to ‘Rebuild<br />

Refocused’, club members are<br />

now getting ready for their<br />

annual exhibition, held each year<br />

at Orton Bradley Park during the<br />

Spring Fair.<br />

‘Rebuild Refocused’ will be on<br />

at Stoddart Cottage until the end<br />

Art for art’s sake – but it is also about<br />

As the Sumner Art<br />

Society gets ready for<br />

its annual exhibition,<br />

reporter Samantha<br />

Mythen went along to<br />

one of their weekly art<br />

practice sessions to see<br />

how the preparation<br />

was going and chat<br />

with the dedicated<br />

artists behind it all<br />

FIFTY-SEVEN years ago, a small<br />

group of artists hosted an art<br />

exhibition for the public.<br />

The exhibition was so successful,<br />

with almost all paintings<br />

sold, that it has been repeated<br />

every year since.<br />

That small group of artists is<br />

known as the Sumner Art Society.<br />

The group’s current members<br />

will host its annual exhibition<br />

this weekend.<br />

Rae Manson’s current focus is<br />

creating abstract works of art.<br />

Behind her are painted seascapes<br />

of lighthouses floating amid<br />

clouds.<br />

Previously working in real<br />

estate, Rae “had a break from art<br />

for 33 years.” It had been something<br />

she had practised since she<br />

was a youngster and could grip<br />

a pencil between small round<br />

fingers.<br />

“I promised myself that when I<br />

retired I would spend more time<br />

with my art,” she said.<br />

Now, every Wednesday she<br />

goes along to the-more-oftenthan-not<br />

sunbathed Mt Pleasant<br />

Yacht Club, perched next to the<br />

Avon-Heathcote Estuary, to<br />

spend her morning painting.<br />

“In my five years of practice,<br />

I’ve improved so much,” she said.<br />

Kilmeny Keyse, the society’s<br />

secretary, is working next to Rae<br />

on a landscape.<br />

“I often paint with oils. I like<br />

its translucency and as it takes a<br />

while to dry, you can manipulate<br />

it.”<br />

She often works with tools<br />

such as palette knives to create<br />

touchable patterns that literally<br />

jump off the canvas.<br />

Kilmeny has really only begun<br />

to dedicate time to her art practise<br />

since retiring.<br />

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

and create as part of the Sumner Art Society.<br />

“I always wanted to go to art<br />

school, but my parents thought<br />

I’d end up a beatnik so sent me<br />

off to study science.<br />

“I love coming here now.”<br />

Her two worlds have since<br />

collided . . . at the yacht club she<br />

dons a paint-splattered lab coat.<br />

But the art society is not just<br />

about creating and crafting. It’s<br />

about collaboration and friendship.<br />

“This group is a community<br />

service. An awful lot of chat goes<br />

on. People are not shy to give<br />

opinions of each other’s art,”<br />

Kilmeny said.<br />

Rae agreed: “There’s always<br />

someone around to ask for help<br />

if you’re not sure.”<br />

Just that morning Benita Dale<br />

McMillen had been asking others<br />

for advice on what colour to<br />

paint a background. She asks me<br />

too, wondering about the colour<br />

of a window sill a cat sits on.<br />

“White or a peachy pink?” she<br />

asked.<br />

She settled on a white, allowing<br />

the eye to be drawn to<br />

the bright colours of the scene<br />

outside of the window.<br />

“We have people who’ve<br />

worked professionally as artists<br />

as well as new beginners to the<br />

practice. Anyone wanting to<br />

join shouldn’t feel anxious or<br />

worried. Everyone is welcome,”<br />

Rae said.<br />

“Since the earthquakes, the art<br />

scene has lost so much,” Kilmeny<br />

said.<br />

“It’s why this group is so<br />

important, and the fact it’s been<br />

going for so long is so special.<br />

We think it’s one of the oldest in<br />

New Zealand.”<br />

The art society was established<br />

in 1959, with the first few meetups<br />

hosted in its founder Reg<br />

Holcroft’s home.<br />

Classes in all matter of instrument<br />

use were taught, from oil<br />

painting to watercolour, pottery<br />

to pastels, to wood carving and<br />

voice.<br />

Membership was at its peak in<br />

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

painting, while Valerie Campbell uses watercolour to add vibrancy to hand-drawn native<br />

birds.<br />

the late 1990s with 200 members.<br />

Now there are 40 members<br />

and they come together each<br />

week to work on their own<br />

practice.<br />

Daphne Russell said one of the<br />

fun parts is that everyone comes<br />

from a different background.<br />

Valerie Campbell, working on<br />

intricate hand-drawn and watercoloured<br />

native birds, agreed.<br />

“The club is great because of<br />

the variety of people. They all<br />

provide positive feedback and<br />

can help point you in the right<br />

direction. It’s all about the energy<br />

here.”<br />

You do not have to live in<br />

Sumner to attend the group –<br />

members come from all over<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Alison Lowe loves going to<br />

take part each Wednesday.<br />

“It’s the social side that makes<br />

this group so good. You can<br />

paint in your studio at home but<br />

why would you when you can<br />

come here every week to enjoy a<br />

good chat,” she said.<br />

Alison is currently following<br />

a course by New Zealand artist<br />

Judy Woods.<br />

The group members are all<br />

unique painters, influenced<br />

by their own experiences and<br />

desires. Walking into the yacht<br />

club is like walking into an art<br />

gallery, there are different styles<br />

and different subjects.<br />

companionship<br />

Sandra Palmer takes along<br />

her own table to the yacht club,<br />

setting up the latest watercolour<br />

painting she is working on.<br />

“I love the way watercolour<br />

does its own thing,” she said.<br />

“I love putting pigment down<br />

on a wet background and seeing<br />

the way it moves across the<br />

canvas.”<br />

Sandra has always dabbled in<br />

painting, especially when her<br />

children were small and she had<br />

the time.<br />

“It’s a life-long practise,” she<br />

said.<br />

“It also provides the opportunity<br />

to make new friends and to<br />

travel.”<br />

There is much variety in the<br />

subject matter the artists choose<br />

to focus on.<br />

Her love of animals often<br />

inspires Celia Morrison’s artwork.<br />

Currently, she is painting delicate<br />

whispers on a curious, big-eyed cat.<br />

Daphne said she “loves<br />

scenery,” a mountain landscape<br />

with a glorious azure sky sits<br />

behind her work table, reflecting<br />

the Southern Alps seen in the<br />

distance from the window of the<br />

yacht club.<br />

“As I see it, I want to paint it,”<br />

she said.<br />

Bruce Marks, now retired, but<br />

previously a tradesman also loves<br />

to paint landscapes.<br />

“The places I’ve been and the<br />

places I’ll go,” he said.<br />

A Sumner scene is inspiring<br />

his latest artwork, the canvas<br />

he’s working on soaked in a deep<br />

cerulean.<br />

Bruce likes to diversify though.<br />

He shows me an oil painting of a<br />

monarch butterfly, sunset wings<br />

over an acrylic background.<br />

Benita Dale originally started<br />

painting as she wanted to create<br />

portraits of her family.<br />

Now she paints an array of subjects,<br />

inspired by her time spent<br />

living both in Christchurch and<br />

Tauranga.<br />

Valerie has been experimenting<br />

with suiboku-ga, Japanese ink<br />

painting. She spent a year living<br />

in Katashima, Japan.<br />

“Painting is such a satisfying<br />

practise. You don’t always like your<br />

work, but time flies,” she said.<br />

ENGINEER TO ARTIST: John Robb learned drafting during<br />

his years as an engineer. He now uses those skills to<br />

create intricate drawings each Wednesday. (Below) – Celia<br />

Morrison’s (right) love of animals inspires her current work<br />

“You can sit down at 9am and<br />

next thing it’s 2pm and you’ve<br />

forgotten all about morning tea<br />

and lunch. Nothing else can create<br />

that level of concentration in a<br />

way that is not draining.”<br />

Beth Cook is one of the longest-serving<br />

members of the art<br />

society. An artwork herself, she<br />

wears a scarf featuring a kaleidoscope<br />

of colours.<br />

“I’ve been around since the<br />

1970s,” said Beth.<br />

“I come for the companionship<br />

and you learn so much from the<br />

other people around you. It’s a<br />

wonderful group.”<br />

The oldest member is in her<br />

90s. Their youngest member is 18.<br />

Geri Parawa said she had been<br />

a member of the group for so<br />

long, she could not even remember<br />

when she first joined.<br />

“I love standing in the middle<br />

of the room and looking at what<br />

everyone is doing,” she said.<br />

“You can always learn something<br />

from someone else.”<br />

Geri is experimenting with<br />

vibrant inks. Her subject matter,<br />

a vase filled with radiant flowers.<br />

John Robb, previously an<br />

engineer, loves to draw buildings<br />

and trains.<br />

His fine-line drawings take<br />

hours. He fills them in with<br />

colour.<br />

“It’s so relaxing being here.<br />

And it’s a commitment. I come<br />

every week.”<br />

The view behind him is the<br />

Ferrymead Estuary.<br />

“The companies nice and I love<br />

to watch the birds.”<br />

AROUND 15 million years<br />

ago (Ma) the Pacific Ring of<br />

Fire became active in our<br />

region and began to build the<br />

backbone of Te Waipounamu<br />

South Island – Ka Tiritiri-ote-Moana,<br />

the great Southern<br />

Alps.<br />

In the sea to the east of<br />

this subduction zone’s great<br />

uplifting, new shield volcanoes<br />

began to form and rise from the<br />

surrounding waters.<br />

THe first of them was the<br />

Lyttelton Volcano that began<br />

erupting <strong>11</strong> Ma, reaching<br />

almost 1000m high around 10<br />

Ma before explosively forming<br />

the beginnings of today’s<br />

natural harbour.<br />

As the volcanic activity<br />

slowly moved southeast away<br />

from Whakaraupō Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>, it formed Te Ahu<br />

Pātiki Mt Herbert Volcano<br />

from 9.7 – 8 Ma and then<br />

moved on to form the vast<br />

Akaroa Volcano from 9 – 8<br />

Ma. Volcanic activity began<br />

to subside from around 7 Ma<br />

ceasing altogether after 5.8 Ma.<br />

It’s only then, with the<br />

never-ending effects of erosion<br />

along the volcanic valleys, that<br />

we have the beginnings of the<br />

weathered volcanic peninsula<br />

that we know and love today.<br />

Although if Cook had been<br />

sailing at the time he would<br />

have been correct in calling it<br />

an island.<br />

It wasn’t until 2 Ma that glaciers<br />

began to grind the Southern<br />

Alps down, with their rock<br />

and loess slowly forming the<br />

Canterbury Plains. And around<br />

20,000 years ago those plains<br />

finally reached the volcanic<br />

island to form Horomaka Banks<br />

Peninsula.<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>11</strong> <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

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

LETTERS 13<br />

Readers respond to<br />

last week’s front page<br />

article on a plan to<br />

reduce the speed limit on<br />

Humphreys Drive from 70<br />

to 60km/h.<br />

Darrell Latham is concerned<br />

that a safer speed on Humphreys<br />

Drive will increase commuter<br />

times for motorists into the<br />

city.<br />

I’m sure he’s done the maths.<br />

The difference in commute<br />

time between the two speeds<br />

is around 10sec over the just<br />

over 1km. Would motorists<br />

commuting notice this on<br />

their <strong>11</strong>min commute to the<br />

city? (I’ve seen the signs on the<br />

causeway).<br />

This of course assumes that<br />

motorists instantly accelerate to<br />

70km/h and can break instantly<br />

to stopping at the Dyers Rd<br />

signals if they’re red. The actual<br />

increase in travel time would<br />

be less than 10sec, and all to<br />

improve safety for all road users?<br />

Fortunately, safety experts<br />

don’t wait for crashes to<br />

happen before providing safer<br />

environments, they’re fortunate<br />

enough to have data on crash<br />

rates in similar environments<br />

all across the country and can<br />

determine safe and appropriate<br />

speeds without having to wait for<br />

people to be killed or seriously<br />

injured on every road.<br />

It’s interesting that 10sec<br />

additional for commuting<br />

motorists (noting we have<br />

ambitious carbon reduction<br />

targets both locally and<br />

nationally) is a concern, but no<br />

issue whatsoever with a much<br />

greater diversion for cyclists<br />

through Charlesworth Reserve<br />

(a far more sustainable mode<br />

for those who are able). There’s<br />

also the bus which is now on a<br />

10min frequency at peak times. –<br />

Darren Fidler<br />

The speed limit on Humphreys<br />

Drive should be reduced to<br />

60km/h from the current<br />

70km/h. I often see people<br />

on that road exceeding the<br />

speed limit and doing closer to<br />

80km/h.<br />

When I am cycling, cars<br />

passing at high speed can be very<br />

intimidating and the wind blast<br />

from the vehicle particularly<br />

large commercial ones can be<br />

very disturbing. It is nonsense<br />

to argue that reducing the speed<br />

limit will reduce times into the<br />

city as this stretch of road can<br />

only be 600-700m in length and<br />

ends in traffic lights which may<br />

force you to stop. – Chris Irons<br />

A definite no to decreasing the<br />

speed from 70km/h to 60km/h.<br />

They (council) have just spent<br />

millions of dollars on cycleways<br />

and reduced the speed in<br />

Woolston along with businesses<br />

losing customers to enable<br />

cyclists to travel safely into and<br />

out of town.<br />

We travel Humphreys Drive<br />

daily at peak traffic times. If we<br />

are lucky enough to see a cyclist<br />

and then they aren’t even using<br />

the new cycleways – Debbie<br />

Camp<br />

If the city council is really<br />

interested in cyclist safety along<br />

Humphreys Drive they should<br />

pave it in a material that doesn’t<br />

flick up stones at cyclists and<br />

other cars. The current speed<br />

is absolutely appropriate given<br />

the rural nature of the road,<br />

no matter what the NZTA<br />

pontificates.<br />

The speed limit should stay<br />

the same and if they’re really<br />

concerned, extend the separated<br />

cycle path along Humphreys<br />

Drive and into Ferrymead,<br />

there’s plenty of empty land for<br />

them to do so. – Samuel Zelter<br />

As a cyclist, I am delighted<br />

that the council plans to safely<br />

connect up the current cycle<br />

path to town with the Ferrymead<br />

Bridge and to reduce the speed<br />

limit for cars.<br />

The current on-road cycle lane<br />

is narrow, partially obstructed,<br />

often covered in gravel and feels<br />

unsafe.<br />

As a motorist, my initial<br />

concern was the nasty feeling<br />

of being slowed down when<br />

dashing about my daily business.<br />

Then I did the calculations and<br />

found that the maximum extra<br />

time this will take is 10sec.<br />

Actually, I think going 10sec<br />

slower into town is a reasonable<br />

price to pay for the additional<br />

safety. – Pat McIntosh<br />

LETTERS 15<br />

As a Ferrymead resident and<br />

frequent user by cycle, 70km/h is<br />

fine and safe.<br />

The bigger issue in<br />

transitioning to lower pollution<br />

is the efficiency of existing<br />

combustion engine transport.<br />

Smooth constant velocity uses<br />

far, far less fuel. Stop-start, speed<br />

up slow down burns substantially<br />

more fuel and brake pads and<br />

tyre wear.<br />

Traffic planners are causing<br />

far more pollution than saving<br />

accidents.<br />

EVs in particular are extremely<br />

susceptible to rapid battery<br />

discharge from stop-start, hills<br />

and headwinds. Plant shelter<br />

along roadways. – Des Knowles<br />

The options for walking a dog<br />

off-leash in my neighbourhood<br />

have been steadily decreasing,<br />

though on the face of it there<br />

would appear to be an adequate<br />

amount of green space from a<br />

non-dog owner’s point of view. –<br />

Trudy McBeath<br />

I obviously think this is a great<br />

idea. I think Laurenson Park<br />

(left) might work. People already<br />

take their dogs there and it’s<br />

partially fenced already.<br />

It also has a bin for putting<br />

poo in. That might keep the<br />

neighbourhood cleaner.<br />

I regularly pick up others’<br />

offerings when walking my dog.<br />

– Liz Wyllie<br />

It is absolutely ridiculous the<br />

council is even considering<br />

not using the alternative route<br />

through Charlesworth Reserve.<br />

The park route is free from<br />

vehicular traffic, sheltered from<br />

the easterly wind, and does not<br />

affect any precious bird activity. –<br />

Alan Truscott<br />

I am writing in response to<br />

Darrell Latham’s opposition<br />

to reducing the speed on<br />

Humphreys Drive.<br />

Counting a generous 1.3km of<br />

road at 70km/h, the time taken<br />

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

time taken is 0.0217 h (3sf). The<br />

difference between these times is<br />

0.0031 h which is <strong>11</strong>.2sec (3sf).<br />

Personally, I feel that I will be<br />

able to absorb this prolonged<br />

commuting time when deciding<br />

what time I leave for work. –<br />

Lydia Duport<br />

I think the speed limit should<br />

remain at 70km/h, the road is<br />

wide enough with no buildings<br />

alongside and a great deal of<br />

money spent on the cycle way. –<br />

Graham Fear<br />

I am for the speed limit being<br />

lowered. Currently if you are<br />

driving to Sumner from town<br />

along Linwood Ave, it is 60km/h<br />

along there, then 70km/h along<br />

Humphreys Drive and then back<br />

to 50km/h when you get to Ferry<br />

Rd.<br />

Having it 60km/h from<br />

Linwood Ave to Ferry Rd/Main<br />

Rd would be much simpler and<br />

would also be safer for people<br />

turning into Mitre 10 and the<br />

shops nearby. And also safer for<br />

cyclists.<br />

Also I find it surprising that<br />

board member Darrell Latham is<br />

wanting to keep it at 70km/h due<br />

to not wanting to increase the<br />

commuter time.<br />

Humphreys Drive is<br />

approximately 1.5km long.<br />

At 60km/h an hour, that<br />

takes you 90sec to drive that<br />

distance.<br />

If I have done my maths<br />

correctly, it would take 77sec at<br />

70km/h.<br />

Decreasing the speed limit<br />

would therefore only add 13sec to<br />

your journey.<br />

I feel that time difference is<br />

negligible in most people’s car<br />

journeys. – Angela Williams<br />

Keep speed the same please. –<br />

Julie Riley<br />

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

dog park<br />

Finally, a dog park mooted for<br />

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

As a long-term resident and<br />

dog owner of Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>,<br />

I am excited by the prospect of<br />

having a local dog park.<br />

My location suggestion would<br />

be in the gently sloping paddock<br />

at the very top of Whero Ave that<br />

stretches through to <strong>Bay</strong>view Rd.<br />

This provides magnificent<br />

views of the harbour from<br />

Sugarloaf to Godley Head. The<br />

cost of adapting this area would<br />

be minimal as it already has<br />

reasonable fencing and water<br />

outlets.<br />

With signage and suitable<br />

doggy-do facilities installed it<br />

could be up and running in no<br />

time.<br />

This area is central to the<br />

village so handy for most. –<br />

A ‘gold mine’<br />

of footwear<br />

for all ages<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>11</strong> <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News 19<br />

The Footwear Factory in Garlands<br />

Road Woolston has been a part of the<br />

Christchurch retail scene for more than<br />

a quarter of a century. Over that time<br />

thousands of people have flocked to the<br />

store to find bargains and good deals in<br />

quality footwear, ranging from children’s<br />

shoes, sandals and school shoes to men’s<br />

and women’s fashion and casual shoes,<br />

outdoor and sports shoes, bowls shoes,<br />

slippers, and safety footwear for the<br />

workplace.<br />

Launched in a small shop in Papanui,<br />

the business later operated in Riccarton<br />

for 12 years before moving to Garlands<br />

Rd 17 years ago. Owned by Russ and Jude<br />

Day, there you will find shelves lined with<br />

footwear in a huge variety of styles and<br />

colours for men, women and children – a<br />

‘gold mine’ for shoe-seeking shoppers.<br />

The footwear is brought in from all over<br />

the world, as well as coming from New<br />

Zealand manufacturers, and includes<br />

ends of lines and other well-priced items.<br />

Four main brands are carried – the<br />

New Zealand made McKinlays range of<br />

children’s school shoes, as well as mens<br />

and women’s styles. The well-known<br />

Hi-Tec range of outdoor footwear and<br />

tramping, New Balance sports shoes and<br />

a range of Keens sandals and outdoor<br />

footwear. These known brands cover all<br />

ages. New styles arrive almost every day,<br />

so there are always more to try on, while<br />

Russell and his second-in-charge Karen<br />

are happy to advise on styles and sizing.<br />

Located on a high-profile site at<br />

47C Garlands Rd, (next to Flags<br />

Tyres), the Footwear Factory is easy<br />

to find, and there is off-street parking<br />

available. They are open seven days a<br />

week – 9.30am- 5pm Monday to Friday,<br />

10am-2pm Saturday and <strong>11</strong>am-3pm<br />

Sunday. Phone 389-3431. Check out<br />

Volvo heads toward electric vehicle goal<br />

AS A COMPANY, Volvo has<br />

come out with some quite<br />

extraordinary announcements in<br />

recent times.<br />

First it was the decision, in the<br />

interests of safety, to speed-limit<br />

all of their vehicles to 180km/h.<br />

That I can understand, Volvo has<br />

long been a safety pioneer and<br />

that didn’t surprise me.<br />

However, one decision that<br />

has taken me by surprise is the<br />

direction where it is heading in<br />

terms of electric vehicles. The<br />

company’s goal is to produce just<br />

electric-only vehicles by 2040,<br />

with 50 per cent of their models<br />

to be electric-only by 2025, which<br />

is a vision to become completely<br />

carbon neutral.<br />

I’m not totally convinced that<br />

goal is achievable and I’m of the<br />

belief the world will still be buying<br />

cars with internal combustion<br />

engines for many years to come.<br />

That aside, the latest Volvo to<br />

come my way was a another step<br />

towards the electric revolution<br />

– the XC40 Recharge, the title<br />

obviously referring to the plug-in<br />

charging capability. The XC40 Recharge<br />

is a hybrid and that simply<br />

means it has a petrol engine and<br />

an electric motor, the combination<br />

works traditionally, the<br />

petrol engine powers the vehicle<br />

and charges the batteries.<br />

In turn, a 10.7kWh battery<br />

pack powers the electric motor,<br />

taking the load off the engine and<br />

creating fuel saving benefits. Also,<br />

the XC40 Recharge has a plugin<br />

facility, you can charge from<br />

home from a domestic three-pin<br />

outlet, or using a type 2 cable you<br />

can quick charge from one of the<br />

many and increasing number of<br />

stations scattered throughout new<br />

Zealand.<br />

As a driver you can also select<br />

electric-only motion. At best<br />

possible usage you could get<br />

46km without the petrol engine<br />

operating. That’s good enough for<br />

my workday commute and the<br />

batteries easily top up with fourhour<br />

domestic charge, while for<br />

interest’s sake you can travel up to<br />

about 600km using petrol.<br />

The XC40 isn’t new but it is<br />

in hybrid form; the Recharge<br />

is based on the floorpan of its<br />

stablemates and sits in the market<br />

at $85,900 which is just shy of the<br />

Government’s rebate scheme, that<br />

being the case it doesn’t quality<br />

its level of specification there is a Volvo claims a 7.3sec run to<br />

lot of value in the model and the 100km/h from a standstill, which<br />

price seems reasonable in terms is a fairly good indication of available<br />

power. The XC40 Recharge<br />

As a comparison, the petrol-only<br />

Volvo claim power outputs of ly-friendly design and that is a<br />

132kW and 265Nm, add in the direction Volvo has been heading<br />

• Price – Volvo XC40<br />

Recharge, $85,900<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4425mm; width, 1863mm;<br />

height, 1652mm<br />

• Configuration – Threecylinder,<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

7.5sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 2.2l/100km<br />

towards for several years now.<br />

The Recharge model is listed with<br />

a 7.7-litre per 100km combined<br />

cycle fuel usage average when the<br />

engine is operating freely. That<br />

figure is easily achievable; the<br />

on-board readout was listing at<br />

8.6l/100km when I took the evaluation<br />

car back to the dealership.<br />

In standard hybrid mode Volvo<br />

claims a tempting 2.2/100km<br />

result.<br />

Not only has Volvo weathered<br />

the hard times that claimed its<br />

Swedish competitor Saab, but the<br />

company’s vision for the future is<br />

commendable, it has a direction<br />

that’s now visible for the entire<br />

world to see.<br />

Volvo will be quids-in and will<br />

have a hefty head start on other<br />

manufacturers going forward,<br />

while for those buyers who aren’t<br />

quite ready for full electric, the<br />

XC40 hybrid has the best of all<br />

worlds.<br />
