Thieves target tradesmen’s

tools in Diamond Harbour

• By Samantha Mythen

WHEN DARREN Sweeney

heard his dog barking before

dawn he thought it was directed

at a cat.

But then the electrician heard

a car idling outside his Diamond

Harbour home. When he looked

out the window he saw a noticed

a small light shining near the

canopy of his work vehicle on his

Athol Pl driveway.

“My adrenalin started pumping

and I ran out the sliding door to

investigate,” Sweeney said.

He chased the would be thief

down the driveway and out onto

the road.

“They were running at 110

miles an hour, jumped into a

wagon and sped off,” he said.

The incident last Tuesday

was the second in a week where

thieves have targeted tradies in

Diamond Harbour.

Koromiko Cres resident Scott

Halliwell had $2000 of DeWalt

tools and nail guns stolen from

his vehicle.

“It seems someone obviously

doesn’t care much for anyone else

especially in the current times,”

Halliwell said.

Freckles

by Cecelia Ahern

Ferrymead

Five people. Five chances. One woman’s search for happiness.

Allegra Bird’s arms are scattered with freckles, a gift from her beloved father.

But despite her nickname, Freckles has never been able to join all the dots.

So when a stranger tells her that everyone is the average of the

five people they spend the most time with, it opens up

something deep inside.

The trouble is, Freckles doesn’t know if she has five

people. And if not, what does that say about her?

She’s left her unconventional father and her friends

behind for a bold new life in Dublin, but she’s still an

outsider.

Now, in a quest to understand, she must find not

one but five people who shape her – and who will

determine her future.

Told in Allegra’s vivid, original voice, moving from modern

Dublin to the fierce Atlantic coast, this is an unforgettable story of

human connection, of friendship, and of growing into your own skin.

The Unexpected Patient

True Kiwi stories of life, death and unforgettable clinical

cases by Himali McInnes

Stories of life, death and unforgettable clinical cases.

A psychiatrist and a patient with supernatural connections. A family man’s

resilience as he recovers from a life-changing terrorist attack. A rural nurse

specialist and his incredible roadside rescue of a woman on the brink

of cardiac death. A trauma therapist caught in the aftermath of a violent

methamphetamine episode.

The Unexpected Patient tells the stories of patients who impacted health carers

in unforgettable ways: patients who showed stubborn perseverance on the road

to recovery, who clung to hope in the face of unexpected trauma, and who

illuminated the indomitable depths of the human spirit.

These stories look at the things that lead to bad health outcomes, from the

seeds that are set before we are born, to the personal choices we make, and to

societal and health sector shortcomings. Yet, ultimately, The Unexpected Patient

is about human relationships and the bonds forged between two people: a

medic and that one, unforgettable patient.

Wednesday September 1 2021 Bay Harbour News

• By Samantha Mythen

BUSINESSES ARE giving the

thumbs up to police reassurance

patrols during lockdown.

Lyttelton police Sergeant John

Moody and his station team of

four have been providing daily

reassurance patrols in Banks

Peninsula from Lyttelton around

the bays to Diamond Harbour,

as well as over the hill and into

Sumner.

The police presence is to

reassure people they are there

and are available to help out if

needed.

“We have been visiting essential

businesses that are able to

stay open during the level four

lockdown, such as supermarkets,

service centres and dairies in the

area,” he said.

“We are reassuring people,

letting businesses know what

to do in different situations,

educating and observing, and

providing an overall police

presence.”

Moody said the patrols started

on day one of lockdown and

have continued since, as part of

a nationwide initiative.

Supervalue Lyttelton is one of

the businesses Moody and his

team have visited.

Store manager Rob De Thier

said the visit was “very good and

very reassuring.”

“The police asked how we were

getting on and if we had any

issues,” he said.

“Luckily, although, we have

been very busy, Lyttelton people

aren’t panic buying, and we

really thank the community for

this.”

De Thier said they had only

seen a few people coming in

not wearing masks, but they

had a box of disposable masks

“We have paused some lines of

work so as not to put ourselves

and others at risk, doing visits

when we don’t have to,” he said.

Moody said few lockdown

breaches had been reported so

far and most people in his team’s

area were “sticking to the rules.”

“I am really happy with

everyone’s efforts,” he said.

SUMNER RUGBY’S Almighty

Tiger Sharks have gone

undefeated this season.

The under 10/11 Rippa team,

the only all-girls team in the

mixed grade, were unbeaten

with the final two games of the

season cancelled due to the

Covid-19 lockdown.

Said coach Shaun Halliwell:

“They are a remarkable group of

girls that not only play and train

hard but they play the game

with the utmost respect to the

teams they verse.”

The Tiger Sharks team comprises

10 female players (“no

smelly boys,” said Halliwell),

from across Sumner, Mt Pleasant

and Redcliffs.

They range in ages from eight

to 11.

The Canterbury Rugby

Football Union introduced the

Rippa grade this year.

“CRFU are trying to

encourage kids who perhaps

would leave at a younger age

when the only option is to

move to tackle rugby. This is

encouraging more kids to keep

up playing rugby by offering the

less ‘physical’ Rippa option,”

Halliwell said.

“And it is also keeping girls

in the game, and this is what’s

been recognised by many as

quite unique and special.”

Halliwell’s daughter Georgie,

10, is in the team.

“She absolutely loves rugby

and has been playing it since

she was five or six years old,” he

said.

He took on the role of coach

this year.

“The Tiger Sharks are an

awesome bunch of young ladies

and trust me, it’s got nothing to

do with the coach, I’m just there

to peel oranges,” he said.

“They are extremely funny,

enthusiastic and full of life.”

Halliwell said some of the

girls in the team who had never

played before had become some

of the top players over the

season.

They trained every Wednesday

for an hour, with games on

Saturday morning.

“The girls were pretty upset

the rest of this season was cancelled

but most of them are very

keen to play again next year,”

Halliwell said.

“They absolutely flourished

this season to become a great

team. I’m already excited to see

how they do next year.”

Junior club captain Richie

Dimbleby said the club was

immensely proud of the girls,

not just for their wins but for

the way they played and worked

together as a team.

“Halliwell has also done a fantastic

job coaching the girls this

year,” Dimbleby said.

He said a focus of the Sumner

Rugby Club has been encouraging

more females to take part in

the sport.

This year, the club had more

Trapping project

receives a

$3000 grant

PREDATOR FREE Redcliffs has

received $3000 to involve the

local community in its backyard

trapping project.

The organisation, which is part

of the Redcliffs Residents Association,

received a grant from the

Backyard Communities Fund as

part of Predator Free 2050.

It is one of only 11 organisations

receiving a grant, nationwide.

Redcliffs Residents Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said the

group was “delighted” to receive

the grant.

The organisation hopes to make

an impact on pests in the area by

getting at least one in five Redcliffs

properties trapping in their backyard.

With the grant, they plan to hold

trap building days to make rat tunnels

to take home; provide ready

access to heavily subsidised traps

and general support.

“By keeping records of the

species caught and their numbers,

we can direct our efforts across

the area to where they will be most

useful and monitor progress,”

McIntosh said.

“The recent showing of Fight for

the Wild on television has shown

how highly committed local

groups can make a real impact.”

Breaking lockdown rules? You could be

• By Samantha Mythen

A SATIRICAL Facebook page

is making sure the Sumner

community is following

lockdown rules.

The Sumner Quarantine

Nark Association shares photos

and videos of people breaking

lockdown restrictions on its

Facebook page of the same

name.

THe most recent post on

Monday featured a video of a dog

wandering Sumner’s streets.

“Un-leashed dog on the

Esplanade, potentially carrying

Covid in its fur. Suspected

boomer owners. Do better,” said

the page.

THe nark association was

founded at the beginning of the

first nationwide lockdown in

March 2020.

As we went into the second

nationwide lockdown, the page

became active again.

THe official nark association

spokesperson and founder said

the page was just “satire” and it

“spawned from boredom during

the first lockdown.”

“Most of the posts are mocking

a lot of comments I had seen on

news articles during lockdown

number one. A bit of satire,

which most people got a laugh

out of, but some not so much,”

they said.

BREAKING THE RULES: A lone surfer hits the Sumner waves last week, narked on by the

Sumner Quarantine Nark Association. Photo posted on August 25. ​

One commenter said the page

was the highlight of the last

lockdown.

Last week, the page narked on

a surfer out trying to conquer the

unusually empty Sumner waves.

“Terrifying breach happening

right now at Sumner beach.

Absolute madness,” captioned

the photo.

Under level four lockdown

restrictions, all water-based

activities such as surfing are

prohibited as they may require

search and rescue services.

Last Saturday, a post said:

“Children playing on the

playground by the clock tower

this morning. It’s probably

riddled with Covid now so keep

away from the area.”

A day later, the nark

association warned about

someone in a “white sedan

throwing chicken nuggets at

pedestrians.”

“As if we didn’t have enough to

worry about right now. Chicken

nugget had one bite was taken

out of it and no sauce. Keep your

head on a swivel,” said the post.

THe spokesperson said: “I

guess it’s not an official rule,

but I’m pretty sure Bloomfield

wouldn’t be too impressed with

people throwing chicken nuggets

at pedestrians.”

Most of the early posts

targeted those who drove to the

Sumner esplanade to head out

for a surf, a bike ride, a run or a

walk.

THe spokesperson said people

driving across town to go surfing

was the most common lockdown

rule broken last year.

“THis time around, it’s a lot

better but there are definitely

loads of people driving in from

other suburbs (this is what a

police officer told me so I’m not

just making assumptions here),”

they said.


narked on

Sumner’s Charlie Hudson

said in spite of the negative

connotations surrounding the

“nark” name of the page – it

was “definitely working” in

encouraging people to obey

lockdown rules.

“I know many people are not

choosing to go for a sneaky

swim or surf because they know

they will be discovered,” she

said.

“THe page is a good tongue in

cheek reminder of the rules.”

THere are a few people

working behind the scenes

on the page but they choose

“quality over quantity” over the

posts they share.

THe spokesperson said during

this lockdown there were few

people submitting anything

serious, rather people were

“mostly dobbing their mates in

and fabricating stories in the

name of humour.’’

“As far as I am aware

everything posted is 100 per cent

true including the post about the

chicken nugget-throwing,” they

said.

“I would like to thank Marnie

Kent for inspiration, she does

an excellent job of moderating

the countless other Sumner

Facebook groups. Secondly, I’d

like to thank anyone named

Karen. And lastly, if you don’t

have a sense of humour, please

AN ORGANISATION working

to make ocean science more

sustainable and accessible,

with a focus on Banks

$20,000 of funding.

Blue Cradle founder

James Nikitine said the

money will be used to

position who will be

responsible for running

in-class workshops at

as promoting the organisation’s

“They will also help with our

Wallace said the help they

received from the Diamond

“It’s wonderful to see the

generosity of people,” she said.

NEWS

• By Samantha Mythen

A NEW children’s book

written by a Sumner author

is connecting Australia and

New Zealand through a

child’s imagination while also

normalising hearing disabilities.

Kiwis and Koalas is a sentiment

of Sarah Milne’s own life.

Although she was born in

Christchurch, Milne learned to

“walk and talk” in Melbourne,

Australia after moving there

with her family when she was

two years old.

She’s been back and forth

between the two countries ever

since and has lived in Sumner for

two-and-a-half years.

“I have a deep-rooted connection

to Australia,” she said.

Although this is her first published

book, Milne has always

loved writing, taking part in

New Zealand writing competitions

and classes since she was

young.

It was when she was pregnant

with her daughter, Ivy, and was

diagnosed with cytomegalovirus,

the first stirrings of a story about

kiwis and koalas began to string

themselves from words into

sentences in her heart.

“The story about a girl with a

hearing aid, pottering around in

a garden with her dog, just living

a normal life, begun swirling

round in my mind.”

This then connected with

her own childhood and having

grown up with “a bridge”

between Australia and New

Zealand.

“I could not have foreseen

Covid-19 and I know right now

for many, including myself,

there’s this deep feeling and wish

we could just go over there.”

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Children’s book a tool to raise awareness about

KIWIS AND KOALAS: Sarah Milne’s first childrens’ book bridges the connection between

New Zealand and Australia through the imagination of a young girl with a hearing

disability. The idea came to her when she was pregnant with Ivy (now 4).

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Ivy tested negative for CMV

at birth and knowing just how

lucky she was, Milne said she did

not want to take her healthy baby

for granted.

“I had this level of survivor’s

guilt,” she said.

“Whenever I saw other parents

out with their kids in prams,

kids who clearly were disabled

due to CMV, I felt so guilty to

just be able to walk away with

my own positive outcome.”

Milne hopes Kiwis and Koalas

can be a tool to help raise awareness

about CMV and make a difference

for those who suffer from

the disease and their families,

with a blurb at the back of the

book detailing the disease.

“When you Google ‘CMV,’ of

all the stories shared by families,

the first thing they say is why did

no one tell us about this disease

before?” she said.

“I want to help change this.”

Milne grew up with a backyard

leading to dense New Zealand

bush. She used to “go and get lost

and make huts.”

“The girl in the story is told she

is a little bit Aussie and a little bit

Kiwi and the mum wishes they

could build a bridge between the

two countries,” she said.

“The girl then goes to explore

the bush and stumbles across a

bridge, and her imagination and

memory comes alive.”

Milne is “really proud” of the

response she has received from

the deaf community.

“There are a lot of disability

books out there that only reach a

certain community,” she said.

“In this book, the disability is

only really subtly part of the story.

It’s not mentioned, it’s just how it

is.”

A woman living in Canada

reached out to Milne recently over

Instagram.

She told Milne, that she was

waiting in her car, scrolling

through Instagram looking

through the CMV hashtag, when

her daughter who has CMV

looked over her shoulder and said,

“look Mum, there’s me,” pointing

to Milne’s character with a hearing

aid.

“I read this and thought, my job

is done.”

Kiwis and Koalas will officially

launch on September 19, at

10.30am in the Sumner Surf Lifesaving

Club.

In collaboration with Sumner

cafe Niche, people can exchange

the coloured-in invite for a free

fluffy and hot drink on the 19th.

On the day of the launch, there

will be face painting, a Q+A,

and a reading of the book with a

Deaf Aotearoa NZSL interpreter

present.

Painting of Lyttelton in

1850 by J. Gibb

Coming around the crest of

the Christchurch (now Sumner)

Rd into Cavendish Bay, one

would have been greeted by

the stony cliffs of Okete Upoko

where the hotly contested Port

Cooper Deed of Sale was signed

just the year before by Ngāi Tahu

rangatira and a representative of

the British Crown.

The ‘Basket of Heads’ overlooks

the slopes of the ancient

Ngati Mamoe settlement of

Ōhinehou where, in Gibb’s

painting, John Robert Godley’s

Canterbury Association has

been busy building a lovely

two-storey six-bedroom home

for his soon to arrive wife Charlotte

and family.

Godley’s House stands in

that last bend of Christchurch

Rd before it turns left into

Oxford St and plunges down

to the jetty. The house’s

foundations were discovered

beneath Plunket House at 4

Sumner Rd when the latter was

demolished after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

In front of that, on the corner

of Oxford St, stands the land

agent’s office, home, and stables.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

The remainder of the buildings

in that block all the way down to

the seawall is the Immigration

Barracks housing the bulk of the

Canterbury Association’s

first customers – colonial settlers

bound for the Canterbury

Plains.

Treasures from the past

Reproduction of a painting of Lyttelton in 1850 by J. Gibb

Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum reference 14625.11

https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1135379 ​

According to the builder

Captain Thomas, the barracks

consisted of “four large

emigration barracks holding

from 200 to 300 people (nearly

completed); kitchen and wash

house, privies, well 44 feet deep

. . . all enclosed with fence and

gates.”

These excellent

accommodations, as well

as the jetty, the roads, 25

houses, two hotels, and a small

customs house, were all built by

Lyttelton’s founding population

of 100 European and 100 Māori

workers, all under the employ of

the association.

While initially overwhelmed

by the more than 800 new

arrivals on the first fleet of

four ships, the barracks would

also become the town centre,

allegedly housing at one time

or another over the ensuing

years: a library; a courthouse;

Reverend Dudley’s church (now

the British Hotel); Reverend

Cotterill’s grammar school

(before moving to Christ’s

College); as well as the town hall

and even a collegiate precursor

to Canterbury University, all

as needed while the town of

Lyttelton grew steadily outwards

from its modest colonial

beginnings.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Many opportunities for lab technicians

Over the past two years,

more than two million

COVID-19 tests have been

performed in New Zealand

alone. However, the

important work done by

laboratory technicians goes

far beyond helping fight

global pandemics.

“COVID-19 has shown

the world the importance

of high-quality lab testing,

but lab technicians do

important work across

many other sectors,” says

Dr Grant Bennett, Ara

Institute of Canterbury’s

programme leader for laboratory science.

Food manufacturing, environmental

monitoring, quality assurance, human

health, veterinary diagnostics and product

development are just some of areas lab

technicians work in. “This profession can

take you in so many directions and you

can make a real difference by helping

our community, our environment and

supporting local industries,” Grant says.

Ara Institute of Canterbury offers three

qualifications for aspiring lab technicians:

two diplomas and a graduate diploma. Each

is industry driven and heavily hands-on with

a focus on employment. Work placements

are included with the Level 6 diploma and

the graduate diploma.

“Our class sizes are small, our programmes

are highly practical, and our labs are

equipped with the same gear that’s used in

industry,” Grant says. “Students gain a broad

range of lab skills, but also many transferable

‘soft’ skills essential to employment, such

as workflow management, teamwork and

communication.”

Michelle Knowler studied Ara’s Level 5

Diploma in Applied Science. “It’s a good

option if you’re straight from high school,”

she says. “It’s much more practical than

theoretical, which I really liked.” Michelle’s

goal is to take her skills back to Vanuatu and

to encourage more women there into science

careers.

After completing a Bachelor of Science

at Otago University, Sam Suzuki studied

Ara’s Graduate Diploma in Laboratory

Technology. He knew that the advanced

laboratory experience he’d gain, along

with the experience he’d get from the work

placement, would equip him with hands-on,

industry relevant skills that would make him

work-ready.

Sam was right. His work placement was

at Plant & Food Research and now he’s

employed there as a lab technician/research

associate within its annual crops group.

All three laboratory technology

programmes start at Ara in February. For

more details, see ara.ac.nz.

Ford’s old favourites pave way for Escape

FOR THOSE like me who have

reached their senior years, you

will remember fondly the cars we

grew up with, most of which were

English.

The Ford Motor Company was

well represented here – Popular,

Anglia and Prefect were names

I remember well, in fact it was

the family’s three-speed Prefect I

learnt to drive in.

If you had access to a hefty

amount of overseas funds you

may well have been lucky enough

to score a Consul, Zephyr or even

Zodiac.

Those cars set the foundation

for Ford becoming a trusted and

recognised brand in New Zealand

and today nothing has changed,

the product line-up is extensive

and is sourced globally.

One of the latest to come

my way was the Spanish-built

Escape, a mid-size sport utility

vehicle that represents everything

a buyer would want in a family

wagon.

The new Escape lands in a

five-model line-up, two and fourwheel-drive

variants, and now

there is the option of a plug-in

hybrid. This evaluation focuses

on the ST-Line four-wheel-drive

at $50,990.

Prices for the range start at

$42,990 and end at $55,990 for

petrol-only models. The hybrids

are likely to land in New Zealand

towards the end of the year and

will be priced at $60,990 and

$66,990.

The newcomer is flash, it has

a bold, muscular body style. It

is curvy and has flowing lines, it

shows real presence and follows

similar styling to that that has

made Ford’s small SUV – the

Puma – so attractive.

The Escape carries on as before,

it gets the 2-litre EcoBoost

engine of its predecessor, the

four-cylinder unit is a real gem

in terms of performance and

economy.

The engine is rated at 183kW

and 387Nm, which is due to the

turbocharging system fitted to

the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit.

It offers significant boost at a

low operating area. Peak power

arrives at just 5700rpm while

maximum torque is available at

3100rpm. The significance of

those figures is the punchy way

the engine works. It is feisty and

lively, yet it delivers with little

audible sound.

If you also factor in the

way power is transferred

through a silky-smooth eightspeed

automatic gearbox, the

driveline is structured for

quick momentum and it has a

responsive nature.

The Escape in GT-Line form

USER-FRIENDLY: A large central screen controls many of

the Escape’s in-cabin functions. It is intuitive to use.

FORD ESCAPE: Plenty of choices along with the option of plug-in hybrid.

will accelerate to 100km/h from

a standstill in 8sec and will

complete an overtaking time of

5.2sec to make 120km/h from

80km/h.

Ford is very proud of its

EcoBoost range of engines, they

have been developed not so

much for the performance I’ve

just commented on, but they also

stand out for economy.

I drove the new Escape many

times at city speeds commuting

for a fair chunk of my evaluation,

normally that type of running

isn’t kind to economy. However,

the fuel usage readout was listing

at a respectable 9.6-litre per

100km when I took the car back

to the Sockburn dealership.

That’s not that far distant to

Ford’s combined cycle average

claim of 8.6l/100km, and that’s

put into perspective when you

take into account the 4.5l/100km

figure sitting instantaneously at

a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over very relaxed at just

1500rpm.

The evaluation car was riding

on high grade Continental tyres

(225/60 x 18in). With their

wide footprint and formidable

reputation there is a lot of

steering feel and strong selfcantering

application within the

steering mechanism. Turn-in

is direct and accuracy with the

handling process is positive.

I particularly like the way the

• Price – Ford Escape ST-

Line, $50,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4620mm; width,

2000mm; height,

1666mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1999cc, 183kW, 387Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

Escape handles, and that doesn’t

surprise me, I’m a big European

Ford fan, and the way the

designers engineer balance and

handling ability into the chassis

of a sport utility vehicle is a credit

to them.

Sport utility vehicles with

their height would, by the

law of physics, be a lot more

cumbersome than they are,

but the Escape doesn’t move

awkwardly in a corner, the

sporting and damper rates easily

contain gravitational movement

without the cost of a firm ride.

The occupants are treated to high

levels of comfort.

I guess a lot of that has to do

with the sophistication within the

suspension, the fully independent

suspension system has supple

movement. Of course, any vehicle

of this ilk that has four-wheeldrive

locates the rear driving

wheels through an independent

system, and the manufacturers

today see that as a way to

promote ride comfort as well as

maintain tyre contact to ground.

The Escape is also fitted

with state-of-the-art gear for

convenience and safety. Some of

the major items include satellite

navigation, voice recognition

communication and infotainment,

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,

and radar cruise control.

Of course, it is also fivestar

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety rated.

The new Escape has a lot to live

up to. I remember when the first

iteration landed in 2001 it was

competing head-to-head with

Mazda’s Tribute, essentially the

same car. The Escape started with

a V6 engine and then, of course,

the Volvo unit as generations

changed.

Since then turbocharged

engines of varying capacities have

powered the Kuga and Escape,

and buyers have related well to

those exciting power plants.

The Escape lands here with

a strong European feel that is

something I particularly like.

However, that doesn’t make it

awkward, the best of all things

Ford does is characterised in

the Escape and there is plenty of

choice within the line-up to meet

tastes and demands.
