Bikes in

tunnel a

hot topic

again

• By Samantha Mythen

DISCUSSION about making travel

easier for cyclists travelling from

Lyttelton through to Christchurch

city has sparked up again.

Cycle advocate and Lyttelton

resident Sarah Van Der Burch

said she wants it to be easier to get

bikes through the tunnel.

“If you can’t bike through the

tunnel or bus, you will drive

your car. I love biking. If, as a

community, we want to reduce

emissions, reducing our time in

cars is something we can all do as

individuals.”

This issue has been discussed

numerous times in the past.

Environment Canterbury

general manager of public

transport Stewart Gibbon said

ECan had engaged with cycle

advocates from Lyttelton two

years ago to explore options.

Said Gibbon: “We explored the

idea of secure bike storage on

the city side of the tunnel with

the bike advocacy group, but

there was little interest, and an

appropriate location and funding

was not found.”

Instead, the route 28 buses were

fitted with racks that hold three

bikes.

Get to know peninsula on foot

• By Samantha Mythen

TWO-THIRDS OF tickets

available have sold for an annual

walking festival exploring Banks

Peninsula.

The Banks Peninsula Walking

Festival is run over four

weekends in November, offering

guided walks in a variety of

locations all around the Peninsula.

More than 50 per cent of spaces

for the festival sold within the

first four days of sales when the

tickets were released earlier this

year.

Festival

co-ordinator

Sue Church

said the aim

is to promote

“a greater

understanding”

of the area and

“to encourage

Sue Church

good health and well-being.”

“All walks are guided by local

volunteers with a good knowledge

of the walk they intend

to lead and who are passionate

about the area,” she said.

Many of the walks are across

private land and covenanted

areas in remote parts of the peninsula,

otherwise inaccessible.

“These are always popular

with festival-goers, with the

longer, harder tramps usually

the first ones to sell out,”

Church said.

“It’s a novelty for them to be

able to access somewhere they

usually can’t go.”

Walks include exploring

the Kaitorete Spit, Brice Falls,

Camp Bay, Hinewai Reserve, the

Hikuraki covenant and many

more, with hikes varying in

difficulty, length and duration.

The festival began as the

Lyttelton Walking Festival but

expanded in 2013 to include the

whole peninsula.

It is run by representatives

from the Rod Donald Banks

Bus capacity

stretched

for cycles

• From page 1

However, Van Der Burch had

heard about times when there was

not enough room for all the bikes

on the rack, with cyclists having

to wait until the next bus.

She has already discussed her

ideas with Deputy Mayor and

Lyttelton resident Andrew Turner.

Said Turner: “This is an important

idea to talk about. We need

to think about whether increasing

capacity to carry bikes on buses

could work or maybe incentivise

cycling where travelling from

Lyttelton to the gondola and back

could be free if you have a bike.”

Turner said these decisions will

be up to ECan.

Cycling through the tunnel

or in any of the side tunnels has

been researched and dismissed as

unfeasible and unsafe.

Gibbon said there will be a

service review of route 28 in the

coming year ahead.

Van Der Burch said she hopes

to talk at ECan’s transportation

sub-committee in late October.

Nuk getting on his bike to help

• By Samantha Mythen

FORMER National list MP for

Port Hills Nuk Korako is biking

720km from Rāpaki to Bluff to

fundraise for Renee Veal’s lifechanging

surgery.

“It’s not a race, rather it’s an

opportunity to support a local

woman who has a great future

ahead of her, get life-changing

surgery,” said Korako.

Veal, who grew up in Rāpaki,

needs a total jaw reconstruction

and jaw joint replacement operation.

For the past 10 years, she

has struggled to sleep and eat

properly. She often experiences

migraines.

Veal has significant widespread

musculoskeletal pain due to

an underlying hypermobility

syndrome. This makes her joints

hyperflexible, causing soft tissue

injuries, bone wear, joint tear

and early arthritis.

The most disabling area of pain

is her jaw, which often dislocates.

This is known as hypermobile

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

“Imagine having a bad toothache

that you can’t get rid of,”

Korako said.

The specialised jaw surgery

costs approximately $90,000.

Replacing Veal’s jaw will ease her

chronic daily pain and greatly

improve her life.

The public health system is not

able to fund Veal’s procedure.

Veal said Korako’s fundraising

efforts mean “everything” to her.

“It’s literally life-changing for

me,” she said.

Korako said Rāpaki is a Ngāi

Tahu ancestral community,

which Veal was brought up in.

“Every child is looked after, not

just by their parents but by the

community as a whole. Rāpaki is

their safe haven,” he said.

After hearing about Veal’s

need for the specialised and

high-cost surgery, Korako began

to brainstorm how he could help,

settling on the bike ride.

Korako will start his ride

on October 9, aiming to travel

approximately 80km each day

for nine days, passing through

several Ngāi Tahu rūnanga.

He will be riding an electric

bike, sticking to level two out

of five for electrical assistance,

which Korako said is “not bad for

a Gold Card holder”.

“I hope there will be a strong

north-westerly to blow me down.”

His wife Christine will be supporting

him along the way.

Korako has been training for

four months, using his Port Hills

backyard, biking from Rāpaki to

Gebbies Pass, Halswell, into the

city, through to Sumner and then

over Evans Pass back home.

He has already raised more

than $6000 of his $50,000 goal.

Veal was originally sceptical

about starting a Givealittle

page, believing her pain was

something she could live with,

compared to people needing

money to save their lives.

“I am extremely grateful for

everyone who has donated and

offered words of encouragement,”

she said.

“I’ve been blown away by the

support of friends, family and

strangers. This all means so

much to me.”

CYCLING FOR HEALTH: Ronnie Kelly from Lyttelton has picked up cycling to improve his fitness, as well as balance out his guilt over driving his

beloved Ford Mustang GT.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Mustang takes back seat to cycle saddle

• By Samantha Mythen

LYTTELTON resident Ronnie

Kelly, 72, has recently taken up

biking to improve his health

but he says it will never replace

his love of his treasured Ford

Mustang GT.

Ronnie started biking last

month, 15 or so years since he

had last rode on two wheels.

“It doesn’t balance it out, but

I do feel a little bit less guilty

about taking the Mustang out

for a drive now that I’m doing

some cycling,” he said.

While he is renovating his

house, his Mustang, imported

from the United States, is stored

in a garage meaning he has only

been taking it out once a month.

Meanwhile, his bike is being

used almost every weekend.

“Unfortunately,” he laughed.

Ronnie said he is still regaining

his confidence on a bike.

“The reason I wear gloves isn’t

because of the cold – it’s to protect

my hands from gravel rash if

I fall off,” he said.

“I’m a bit wobbly when I first

get going, but I get better. I’m

okay once I’m on it and travelling

along at a reasonable speed,

but going really slowly or getting

the bike started is still a little bit

of a problem.’’

He is diabetic and recently

bought a bike in order to improve

his fitness and lose some

weight, which he gained while

recovering from a broken leg.

The Coastal Pathway is his

trail of choice.

“I love it as it’s nice and quiet

and offers great views.”

Ronnie said he is currently

enjoying short, gentle bike rides,

but as his fitness improves he is

hoping to explore more terrain.

“I’ve always enjoyed biking,

but I got out of the habit of it,’’

said Ronnie.

“I like the pace of it and being

able to look around. It’s quite a

leisurely thing. I’m not out to go

really quickly or anything like

that. I just like the feeling of it.”

Ronnie confessed he had

thought about biking down to

the Lyttelton shops recently but

then changed his mind as biking

back up seemed “a bit too much.”

“Lyttelton’s a bit too hilly for me.

Maybe if I had an electric bike.”

The Otago Rail Trail is a potential

future goal of his.

“I’ll just have to persuade my

wife though, hopefully an e-bike

would help,” he said.

6 OUR PEOPLE – ROB FROST

Making a life of trekking the hard way

Rob Frost may live

in a Lyttelton villa

but his true home is

touring the Southern

Alp’s main divide.

This is something he

has made his day

job, recently starting

Mountain Journeys,

a guided hiking

company. Reporter

Samantha Mythen

talks to Frost about his

love of the outdoors

How would you introduce

yourself to someone new?

I am a transalpine tramper,

that’s the main thing I like to do.

I like going into really remote,

off-track places in New Zealand.

I’ve recently set up my business,

Mountain Journeys, so I can

both take people there on guided

trips and give people skills to

be able to do those sorts of trips

on their own. I used to be an

engineer. I do photography. I’m

a celebrant. I’ve done writing.

I grew up in a combination of

New Zealand and the United

States. Most of my high school

and university days were in

Auckland. I came to the South

Island 15 years ago to be closer

to the Southern Alps.

When did you first discover a

love for tramping?

It first began when my family

went on day hikes when we were

young. We did a lot of walks

in the hills but there was never

anything overnight. As soon as I

heard there was a tramping club

at high school, I joined. I also

joined the Auckland Tramping

Club when I was 16. I was the

youngest member, about half the

age of the next youngest. I joined

the uni clubs already with a huge

love of tramping and getting

into remote places. The clubs

were a pathway to find more

keen people to go on trips with

and essentially fulfil my own

ambitions with the sort of trips I

wanted to do.

When you were younger had

you ever dreamed of starting a

tour guiding company?

No, not at all actually. The

guiding that has existed for a

long time in New Zealand has

either been more about giving

people a nice comfortable time

on defined trails, staying in

huts. Or, it’s been very skilled

mountain guiding taking people

up summits, like Aoraki and

Aspiring. About three years

ago, it occurred to me there was

this huge gap between the nice

comfy trail-based stuff and the

extreme mountaineering. The

gap in what was being provided

DISCOVERY:

was exactly the sort of trips I

like doing, the remote, off-track

tramping, that needs a few

mountaineering skills. As soon

as I thought of starting up that

kind of business, I couldn’t think

of anything else I’d rather be

doing. So I thought, whatever

it takes to get established, I’m

going to do it.

What makes going off the

beaten track so appealing?

When I started really getting

into tramping, I discovered this

guidebook called Moir’s Guide.

It highlighted all these routes

through the Southern Alps that

don’t have marked tracks or huts

but people have been there and

there are recommended ways

to go through. That opened my

eyes. When you start looking

at maps of the back country to

where there are no tracks, you

link up all these potential places.

It ends up becoming a problemsolving

exercise, taking you to

places where hardly anybody

has been, so you have a feeling

of discovery and it makes it feel

very special and unique when

you know it’s not a commonly

visited place. It’s really satisfying

when it takes experience and

skill to be able to execute the trip

successfully.

When did you start dreaming

up Mountain Journeys?

About 10-12 years ago I

had already spent some time

working as a glacier guide on

the West Coast at Franz Josef

and Fox. I knew for this venture

I needed more work experience

and a qualification through the

New Zealand Mountain Guides

Association. It was about

mid-2018 it occurred to me I

could start this. I then started

looking at what qualifications I

needed and enrolling in them;

multi-day first aid courses,

week-long snow and ice guiding

courses, week-long avalanche

assessments. That was early

2019. It’s been coming up three

years the time I’ve spent getting

work experience and getting

qualified.

OUR PEOPLE 7

but not taking it to the extreme

Wednesday September 29 2021 Bay Harbour News

I submitted my concession

application to run Mountain

Journeys on 60 places of

conservation land to DOC in

October last year and because of

Covid they’ve been pretty busy

but it is on the home straight

of being assessed now. In the

meantime, I applied for a one-off

concession for Canterbury and

the West Coast, with my first few

trips running next month.

What would a typical journey

with you entail?

We carry everything we need

with us on our backs. There

are no pre-placed equipment

or food or camps set up. We go

everywhere on foot. Occasionally,

we would use a four-wheel-drive

to access further up a valley but

it’s a point of difference I like

to make that we don’t use any

helicopters for access. It feels

more satisfying knowing you’ve

got there under your own steam

and it also ensures you don’t

end up somewhere really remote

with people who aren’t capable of

moving through that terrain. We

don’t have to stick to a set

itinerary, we don’t have to get to a

certain destination to camp.

What are your favourite hikes

in New Zealand?

I really like getting into the

Landsborough. It’s a stunning

setting, along the edge of a

designated wilderness area.

The biggest soft spot for me in

my heart is South Westland,

MAIN DIVIDE: With his new company Mountain Journeys,

Frost takes people on exploratory trips throughout the

South Island.

although it’s a very difficult place

for trips. Essentially Hokitika to

Haast and all those valleys and

ranges in there.

When I got asked to write

the Aoraki Guidebook for

Mountaineers, the first thing I

asked the New Zealand Alpine

Club, who were publishing it,

was do you mind if I expand the

guidebook area to cover all of

(Westland) Tai Poutini National

Park as well and they said go for

it. There are some amazing valleys

and ranges there people just don’t

know about. So that was a lot of

fun researching those, through

both journals and books but

also through doing a few trips

of my own in these places. I do

also appreciate having the Port

Hills right here. There are some

amazing pockets of bush with

nice trails going through them

and being able to walk out the

front door is pretty cool.

Have you ever hiked overseas?

I’ve done a couple of trips to

the Himalayas in Nepal. Once

for trekking and once to try

and climb an unclimbed peak

there. It’s called Anidesh Chuli

or White Wave, it’s almost

7000m in the far east of Nepal.

You can’t even see it from the

nearby trekking route, it’s pretty

obscure. Beautiful peak, not too

dissimilar to Mt Tasman in how

it looks but it’s a lot bigger and

has never been climbed. It still

hasn’t been climbed. The far east

appealed as it wasn’t popular

like the Everest region. I still

felt though, because there were

villages scattered throughout

these valleys, I actually get

more of a feeling of true remote

wilderness in New Zealand than

I did in the Himalayas. You

can just go for so long in New

Zealand with no civilisation.

Tell me about your hike up

White Wave?

The trip was inspired by

this book by mountaineer

Graeme Dingle. He did a trip

in 1975 to try and climb up a

mountain called Jannu and they

did remarkably well given the

horrific weather they had. But

they didn’t quite make it to the

top. In this book, there are some

photos of White Wave. “White

Wave soars skyward on the other

side of the valley” and then “To

date this beautiful mountain

reminds unclimbed” the photos

were captioned. But this book

came out in 1975 and I thought,

well, it must be climbed by now.

So I went online to try and find

more information on what it was

like but there was no record of it

at all. After a bit more research, I

found the Nepalese Ministry of

Tourism has a list of unclimbed

peaks you can apply for

permission to attempt and White

Wave is on it.

I thought, holy moly, it’s still

unclimbed and it’s a beautiful

looking peak in the part of Nepal

I already had a fascination with,

the far east. There was a cool

New Zealand connection, the

far east of Nepal was interesting

and this beautiful mountain was

unclimbed, I thought well, that’s

all pretty appealing.

Three friends and I gave it ago

in April-May 2013. Two of the

others had an accident. Scott

Scheele fell, probably from an

avalanche that wiped him off

the slope. He had a huge fall of

90m, the rope caught him but he

got a pretty major concussion.

Ben Dare, the guy he was with,

spent a day and a half getting

him down. A totally heroic

effort and Ben ending up getting

an award from the governorgeneral.

Would you ever go back for

another try?

I probably wouldn’t now. I

wanted to for a long time after

that because it felt like unfinished

business but it would just be

going back to the same place

I’ve already been and it’s a lot of

resources, money and time to

put into a goal that is very much

defined by success or failure if

you get to the summit or not.

With a lot of journeys, you

don’t have to get to the summit

for it to be regarded as a success,

rather all that matters is you’ve

been on a cool journey to

somewhere new. That’s where I’m

putting my efforts now.

Weekly bike rides paramount for Hunter

• By Samantha Mythen

SMILES: Hunter, his mother Angela Abel and assistance

dog Cooper, visit Sumner every week to make the most of

the esplanade and beach, a perfect spot for Hunter to ride

his trike.

HUNTER ABEL, 16, known as

a 2m three-year-old with SATB2

syndrome, has always loved

riding bikes at Sumner.

Hunter and his mother Angela

Abel travel there from their

home in Cashmere every Sunday,

where Hunter rides his adultsized

trike along the esplanade

and along the beach.

After speedy e-bike riders

were causing some trouble for

Hunter along the esplanade, Abel

decided to use social media to

introduce Hunter to the Sumner

community, posting on the local

community group page.

“When you put yourself out

there, being vulnerable and kind,

it’s scary, but people reacted so

much better than I could have

hoped.”

“People have started to say

hello to Hunter, and I feel bad

for not knowing their name. It’s

amazing the difference a wave

and smile can make.”

Abel said the interactions are

great for Hunter as he can use his

iPad to say hello back, or let the

passer-by know the name of his

assistance dog, Cooper.

The fresh air, sensory inputs,

and endorphins from the exercise

have a positive impact on

Hunter.

Abel and Hunter look

forward to a coffee and scone at

Scarborough Fare Cafe.

During the recent lockdown,

they visited Sumner every day,

with a special note from police

allowing them to continue Hunter’s

routine.

With the cafe shut, Abel

brought along homemade baking

and a milkshake for Hunter,

“who didn’t even realise anything

was different.”

Hunter was only diagnosed

with SATB2 at the beginning of

this year.

SATB2 is a rare gene deletion

disorder, which only 450 individuals

have been diagnosed with

globally.

As a result, Hunter is non-verbal,

has low muscle mass paired

with a tall height, and has cognitive

difficulties.

“Genetics are like the Great

Wall of China with millions of

bricks making up our composition.

Hunter has a few bricks

missing,” said Abel.

Although it was a seemingly

perfect birth, at four weeks old,

Abel suspected something was

wrong.

“He was always looking

straight through me or was

staring at the ceiling,” she said.

The family took Hunter to

hospital where he underwent a

multitude of different tests but

the medical staff returned with

empty answers.

“It was so scary,” said Abel.

Abel said she does not want

to sugarcoat how hard raising

Hunter has been.

“I had terrible depression

for years and I still throw

wobblies all the time,” said

Abel.

“But I wouldn’t change it for

the world. Having a disabled

child is like having a superpower.

You have so much empathy for

the world around you.”

Abel worked as a project manager

and had this idea of “fixing

Hunter,” always known at work

as the “problem-solver.”

“I Googled and read and practised

everything that could help

Hunter,” she said.

Throughout this journey, Abel

recognised the importance of

nurturing her own well-being.

“If I’m in a good space,

everything else is better,” she

said.

“I wish someone could have

told me about the importance

of self-care earlier, it’s the best

advice, especially for new

mothers.”

As a result, Abel dived into

cold water swimming last year at

Sumner beach.

“My mornings can include

wiping poo off walls and cleaning

Weet-bix off myself. I walk

out of the door with all these

negative thoughts on the messy

whiteboard of my mind,” said

Abel.

“Then, although, it can be

excruciatingly cold, dunking my

head under cold water triggers

me into different thought processes.

The whiteboard is cleared

and I can write back on it in a

much calmer way.”


Holy moly look at our

power bill this month

A spike in the cost of your power bill can

be more than just a wee shock. It’s one

tell tale sign that your heat pump may

not be working at peak efficiency. And

while heat pumps are a cost effective

form of heating and it may seem to be

running normally, one of the biggest

signs it isn’t will be in your power bill.

And this is why:

If your heat pump is overworking, its

diminished heating capacity will raise Photo credit to Fazakerley Patterson Photography

energy use as your pump struggles

to maintain the desired room temperature. The reason could be a number

of things; blocked filters and / or coils, a compromised compressor or a

refrigerant leak. Like any appliance, regular maintenance of your heat pump

will mean it will run more efficiently and save you money. All of these things

will be assessed in a regular service by our trained technicians.

The power is all yours and the best thing you can do to extend the life and

efficiency of your heat pump is to have it professionally serviced at least

once a year. Our technicians do a comprehensive examination of your whole

system, carry out a routine maintenance service and advise you if anything

might need further repair.

‘Diabolical’ bathroom makeover

• By Samantha Mythen

A SINGLE mother of five

children is “unbelievably

grateful” after her “diabolical”

bathroom was renovated as part

of a community initiative.

Helping Hands, a nationwide

co-operative run by Mitre 10,

saw staff at Mitre 10 Mega

Ferrymead join alliances with

Southbuild for the renovation

after hearing about the family.

The bathroom needed

significant work. There were

holes in the walls, a broken

window, a rotting bath, and

a leaky tap. Rain often came

through the window.

Unfortunately, the family

could not afford to fix it up.

“It was so awful and

overwhelming and not fair for

my kids,” said the mother, who

wanted to remain anonymous.

“Every day I walked past

the bathroom and I just didn’t

know where to even begin

with starting to fix it. It was an

impossible task to do on my

own.”

Southbuild offered labour

from them and their sub-trades

– Southplumb Ltd, McClure

Electrical and TV Services,

Floorpride, DC Flooring,

Absolute Painting, All Suburbs

Glass, and Daveron Scaffolding –

at no cost.

The bathroom was completely

renovated.

“My kids are always brushing

their teeth now, they always want

to be in there and they keep the

space so tidy,” said the mother.

“I am unbelievably grateful for

Helping Hands and Southbuild.

BACK IN 2015, the then Prime

Minister announced a goal

of eradicating all non-native

predators – primarily rats,

possums and stoats as they

inflict the worst damage – by

2050 in order to protect the

country’s indigenous wildlife.

To achieve such a goal it was

essential to connect the efforts

of a range of interested parties;

from government and scientists

through to private businesses

and philanthropists, and to communities

and iwi.

There has long been an interest

in making the Port Hills a

predator-free zone. With the formation

of the Predator Free Port

Hills, a grass roots conservation

charity, the work began. Over

time, Predator Free Sumner Bays

was formed to focus on a discrete

area of the Port Hills, which was

further niched with the formation

of Predator Free Redcliffs.

Like any voluntary organisation,

funding is always a problem

so when the Sumner Ferrymead

Foundation launched their Environment

Award earlier this year

“it just made sense to apply” said

John Cook, one of the Volunteers

with Predator Free Redcliffs.

“We needed to invest in more

traps and later-model traps too.

To be the inaugural winner, to

see our hard work being recognised,

was extremely gratifying.”

John Christensen, a trustee of

the Sumner Ferrymead Foundation,

said the Foundation was

impressed with their structured

approach, starting with the baseline

survey to understand types

and numbers of predators in the

bush surrounding Barnett Park,

and the initial deployment of

traps in the bush areas along the

west side of the sports ground.

“They needed funds to buy

more possum traps to establish

the trapping lines into the upper

valley in order to catch even

more predators. With their

proven track record it was not a

difficult decision.”

The six-week baseline survey

undertaken by Predator Free

Redcliffs identified the hot spots

in the area through the use of

ink pads inserted in tracking

tunnels to identify the different

paw marks, and chew cards

attached to the base of trees to

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

identify the various teeth marks

of different animals. Rats were

concentrated near homes while

possums were found in the bush

further up the valley.

The next step was to introduce

the traps.

“Up in the valley the results

were alarming; 10 possums were

caught in a six-week period by a

single trap” said Martin Ward,

another volunteer.

“Additional possums were

caught by residents living on

the section of Moncks Spur Rd

that backs onto Barnett Park

with their own traps. One of

the residents is known to have

caught at least 15. This gives

us the confidence to put more

traps in, and the grant from the

foundation enables this, so we

are very grateful.

“With the scale of our trapping

increasing we are hoping to liaise

Partnerships are essential if

communities want eradicate

predators, and not just with

residents who already have their

own traps.

Predator Free Port Hills has a

goal of one-in-five households

having a ‘backyard’ trap by 2024.

“To support their goal we are

looking to work with both Redcliffs

can then be taken home by the

As August brought New

LPC remained committed to

keeping Canterbury’s supply

With the support of our COVID-19 response

team, we were able to quickly snap back

into lockdown protocols to keep our people,

increased PPE and hygiene measures, social

distancing, creating work bubbles and all

non-essential staff working from home.

We have also been working closely with

Canterbury District Health Board and

our unions to vaccinate our team against

COVID-19.

As at the end of August, we are now

sitting at over 95% of our border-facing staff

vaccinated, with remaining staff and their

household contacts being vaccinated over the

and community clinics.

We know that the vaccine provides an

“We are very conscious of the impact

we can have on the community, so the

Reaching

record

heights for

container

volume

In July, LPC started the

Leading the Way values award

– an opportunity to highlight

those who are living the LPC

values every day.

In a time of global shipping

congestion, it’s great to see our

passionate and skilled team

working together to set

new records.

With almost 50 nominations and four winners

already, it’s off to a great start.

LPC values are pride, communication,

integrity and one LPC team and were chosen

through a collaborative effort from people

across the business.

It was essential that the values came

from our staff as they need to reflect what’s

important to them.

The Leading the Way award was developed

to recognise those who demonstrate the

values in their work, with anyone across LPC

able to nominate their workmates.

Once a month, our executive leadership

team comes together to choose a winner or

two. LPC CEO Roger Gray says celebrating

success is such an important thing to do, and

for the nominees, it’s often the small things

they do every day that get them recognised.

“It’s been fantastic to see the team

acknowledge each other’s hard work,

commitment and excellent performance.”

Some of our first winners included

CityDepot Site Foreman Paki Tamehana and

Container Controller Hédy van Zyl. Paki was

nominated because he constantly goes above

and beyond his role – all with a smile on

his face.

“Paki takes a lot of pride in his work and

strives to get the depot running to its full

potential. He will happily help out wherever

needed to keep things going – be that driving,

washing, coming in early or helping with

training,” says Paki’s nominator.

For Hédy, it was a great act of teamwork

that got her nominated.

“While doing normal routine checks for

cargo coming into the Port that would head

for MidlandPort, Hédy spotted that several

containers were showing the wrong line

operator. While this would have had no

impact on MidlandPort, it would have caused

issues for multiple teams down the track.

Thanks to Hédy, this issue was raised and

fixed before the vessel berthed,” says Hédy’s

nominator.

The creation of LPC’s values is part of our

wider cultural change and helps us define

how everyone should go about their work.

“These values reflect the proud and

dedicated workforce we have at LPC and give

us the tools to take LPC forward,” says Roger.

containers, with a 20ft container being one

TEU and a 40ft container two TEU.

GM Container Operations Simon Munt

says this success comes down to great

teamwork across the business.

“These numbers are only possible with

support from a range of teams. From everyone

in the container terminal who move the

containers to our teams at our depots in

Woolston and Rolleston who help manage

capacity and the maintenance team to make

sure we have the equipment needed to keep

us moving.”

As July is considered a quieter time, we

expect to see volumes continue to increase as

we head towards the peak important season

leading up to Christmas.

“Moving 44,847 TEU in July is almost one

a minute for the entire month – I’m looking

forward to seeing if we can break that record

later this year,” says Simon.

ENVIRONMENT

Gold standard

commitment

to our

environment

Part of ensuring that

we protect the beautiful

environment around us

is having plans in place to

prevent and reduce our

operational impacts.

That’s why we joined Toitū Envirocare’s

enviromark programme to help us develop

and implement an annually audited

environment management system (EMS).

LPC is proud to announce that it is now

enviromark gold certified.

To reach this, LPC worked with Toitū

through an audit that looks at a range of

factors like our environment and health and

safety compliance, policies and procedures,

support from leaders and project management.

Environmental Business Partner Crystal

Lenky says that a key part of LPC’s success

is having support from leaders and the

workforce.

The audit also looks at key improvements

that were needed – a target for LPC’s EMS

was to improve the way we store, track and

use hazardous substances.

“We now have better systems in place to

help us understand how we use different

substances in places like our mechanical

workshop,” says Crystal.

“ Protecting the

environment

and biodiversity

of the harbour

really takes a

team effort, so

it’s fantastic to

see the wider

workforce get

involved.”

Our next goal is to reach the final level of

certification (diamond) in 2022 and have this

across all three of our sites.

“Our hope is that this gives further

confidence to the communities in which

we operate that we take our environmental

responsibilities seriously,” says Crystal.

One picture is worth a thousand words

DO YOU HAVE a box of photos

at the top of the wardrobe or

under the bed?

Do you think no-one would be

interested in your old photos?

Think again.

Christchurch City Libraries is

running the annual Christchurch

photo hunt this October.

The popular event is part of the

Christchurch Heritage Festival

from October 9 to 25.

Take your

photos into

your local library

and they

will scan and

return them

or you can

upload photos

Carolyn

Robertson

to discoverywall.nz

The winning

photograph from last year’s

photo hunt (shown above) was

taken by Barbara Newcombe’s

father Peter Basire in October,

1953.

It shows a British European

Airways Vickers Viscount 701

near the hanger at Christchurch

Airport – surrounded by admirers.

“We really liked how this

particular photograph combines

being artistic with telling a great

story about the crowds inspecting

the planes following the

London-Christchurch Air Race,”

says city council head of libraries

Carolyn Robertson.

“The image captures an event

very much of its time and the

great excitement of Christchurch

being the final destination of the

race.

“The air race is a well-known

event but it wasn’t well represented

in the digital heritage collection

so this image, along with the

12 others contributed as part of

this collection, provide the public

with an insight into this historic

event.”

Another notable find last

year came from Ron Cone, who

brought in a box of old photos

he had taken of everyday life and

work around Christchurch.

Some of Mr Cone’s photos

show crowds gathered outside

the State Theatre, an aerial shot

of Papanui High School in the

1960s and the intersection of

High and Cashel Sts in 1967.

They’ve now become an

important part of the libraries’

digital collection.

“Thanks to Mr Cone we now

have precious photos of how

Christchurch was, and some

really interesting colour photos

from the 1950s and 60s,” Ms

Robertson says.

Mr Cone’s collection of over

80 images are available to view

online at Canterbury Stories.

Photo Hunt 2021 is open to

enter online from October 1 to

31.

Crowds gather at Christchurch

Airport to view the Vickers

Viscount that flew here in the

London-Christchurch Air Race.

Right – Movie-goers queue for a

ticket outside the State Cinema in

Colombo St. If you have historic

photos of Christchurch take them

to your local library and have them

scanned for the Discovery Wall.

The Narova in Lyttelton

Port

The Narova, photographed

here in Lyttelton Port, was built

sometime in the 1910-20s and so

would be around a century old

today.

Shown on board are the then

owner, Jack ‘Lucky’ Luxton with

his son Pete, possibly preparing

for another crayfishing

expedition six hours north to

Nape Nape.

Word has it, oftentimes they

were so successful they would

return with the wheelhouse

knee-deep in crays.

However, The Narova’s

crayfishing career was nearly

cut short in the 1950s when it hit

the harbour breakwater in

a storm and the hull was

breached.

With a full load of crays

on board, it is said half had

to be thrown back before the

stricken craft could be lifted off

the breakwater by a pile driver

barge – as possibly shown in the

second photograph of the pile

driver lifting the Narova.

Sent to Melbourne and

patched up, she resumed her

fishing career and could be seen

around the harbour for many

more years to come.

Scrapped sometime in the

last decade, the hull remained

How we aspire to meet our students

A “culturally responsive pedagogy” is a term that

many outside of the education sector may have heard

from time to time but have little grasp of. Such is the

way of many government departments with their

reliance on such jargon and assertions to stay the

course. What this means for us at Linwood College

at Ōtākaro is an endeavour to deliver an accessible

practice of our teaching and learning that values an

individual’s culture. It is a genuine attempt of our

educators to recognise, celebrate and utilise every

ākonga for their unique and meaningful identity and

background. We recognise as educators our tried

and true purpose is to advance academic progress

but we also aspire to ensure all our students feel their

cultural identity is strong, secure and fundamentally

valued along the way. Using this practice ensures

we are bicultural and upholding the principles of the

Treaty of Waitangi for both parties, and when we

succeed it benefits every student. For all ākonga, we

must work to ensure they all feel they belong within

the learning environment we provide and a sound,

clear kaupapa is shared with the community that

is focused on the potential of ‘all’ learners to thrive

without compromising who they are.

Students attending Tausala Night

So what does this look, sound and feel like in

our learning community? In the classroom, it is

expressed through wānanga – decision-making and

learning practices that are responsive to a range of

relevant contexts. It maintains, advances, and shares

knowledge and develops intellectual independence,

while assisting the use of knowledge regarding

ahuatanga Māori (Māori tradition) according to

tikanga Māori (Māori custom). This can be found in

our science classes where Y10 students learn about

genetics and how a cancer threat helped singer

Stan Walker identify how the mutated CDH1 gene

was expressed in his whakapapa. It can be seen

and heard in the karakia recited at the beginning

of Tāhuhu classes. It can be found in the cultural

narrative names gifted to us by Ngāi Tūāhuriri for the

rebuild: Te Aratai college.

Siva Somoa performed at our Festival of Nations

Our commitment to cultural responsiveness is also

addressed in our practice of ako and mahi ngātahi,

a philosophy of not only sharing the content, context

and responsibility of teaching and learning between

student and teacher but also in the wider community

with ongoing kōrero and consultation with whānau.

Perhaps the best example of this is our Wā Whakanui

conferencing we hold twice every year. These

conferences replace the traditional parent-teacher

interviews where whānau are given 10 minutes

intervals to digest a student’s progress by individual

teachers. Instead, Wā Whakanui is a presentation

delivered by our students to their whānau, sharing

and speaking to 3 pieces of their best work. These

are empowering, inspiring presentations where the

self-determination and success of our ākonga is

evident for their loved ones.

Our commitment to strong community bonds is

also ever-present in our Tausala Night where our

Pasifika Students and Polyfest group perform for

their family, friends and kaiārahi, and Te Roopu

Kapa Haka o Kimihia, the school’s kapa haka group.

This group is a combination of 5 kura from around

a new chapter

Students taking part in the He Puna Putaiao

programme

Christchurch including: Christchurch Girls High

School, Christchurch Boys High School, Cashmere

High School and Haeata Community Campus.

The success from these competitions is more than

placing on the day, it includes creating a sense of

whanaungatanga, personal success and a sense

of belonging and identity within the kaihaka for all

ākonga to be proud of who they are and their cultural

identities.

A school is not an isolated silo where we prepare

our students for the ‘real world’ outside. A school is

part of that real world, where the experiences and

expressions are as real and lived as anything that

flows in, through and beyond it. This is why we believe

that a successful kura, a school that delivers success

for its taonga, is engaged with the communities,

histories and identities of all that come to tread life

and experience into its hallowed halls.

Eclipse Cross gets hybrid driveline

YOU COULD say Mitsubishi

helped pioneer the plug-in hybrid

market. It was in 2013 when the

company first introduced its Outlander

PHEV, it arrived at a time

when plug-in electric cars were

just becoming established.

The Outlander sport utility

vehicle with its 2.4-litre petrol

engine has traditional hybrid

power along with plug-in charging

through domestic supply or

charging station.

The Outlander PHEV is still

with us, better than ever before,

it’s a car I particularly like, and

judging by the number I’ve seen

on our roads it has been a worthwhile

investment for Mitsubishi.

Well, it was only a matter of

time before Mitsubishi put that

technology to further use, it’s now

available in the new-generation

Eclipse Cross, a smaller SUV, but

one that has already carved out a

solid reputation in terms of sales

since it was released here in 2018.

Of course, the Eclipse Cross is

still available with its 1.5-litre turbocharged

four-cylinder power

that lists from $35,990, an extra

$15k will buy you into the PHEV,

and for my money it would be the

Eclipse Cross that I would buy.

The PHEV’s driveline is biased

well towards electric power, it

wants to use that 55km electric-only

range at first priority,

the petrol engine reluctant to

come in until there’s no charge

left. Sure, it works in traditional

hybrid fashion, petrol to charge

batteries and also supplement

drive, but if electric vehicle transport

is your first priority then the

Eclipse Cross would be perfect

for your daily commute.

Push-button modes can also

alter the way the combination

works, there are applications to

save battery power or drive in

electric mode-only at will.

The evaluation car came with

two cable types, one for domestic

supply and one for charging

stations. If I was a purchaser I’d

insist on both, just so that battery

top ups can be made from almost

anywhere there is electrical

supply. For the record, a 25min

charging station plug-in will take

the batteries up to 80 per cent.

On the subject of figures,

Mitsubishi also lists a total travel

distance of 660km using both

hybrid systems. A petrol consumption

combined cycle average

of 1.9-litres per 100km is claimed

at best possible usage.

The Eclipse Cross in this form

is also pretty handy under acceleration,

it will reach 100km/h

from a standstill in 9sec and will

make 120km/h from 80km/h in

6.8sec, a result of solid mid-range

urge thanks to the strength of

electric drive.

In petrol-only mode the driver

has access to 94kW and 199Nm,

add in 60kW and 70kW for the

motors front and rear and you

will find the Eclipse Cross gets

about its business without strain

or stress. Drive is channelled

GRAPHICS: A central dash display alerts the driver to the

Eclipse Cross’ drive modes.

MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS PHEV: Hybrid power biased toward electric.

through a continuously variable

automatic transmission, it

is a quiet, seamless operating

system and one that Mitsubishi

has developed well in terms of

refinement.

Before you think the Eclipse

Cross can’t be a true SUV without

four-wheel-drive – take stock,

as I’ve just alluded to there is

an electric motor over the rear

axle which in turns makes it

all-wheel-drive. There are also

complicated electronic and

mechanical functions that you

can treat as normal four-wheeldrive

functions.

This is something Mitsubishi

does well, it builds on the 4WD

systems that have made Pajero,

Outlander, Triton and Lancer

Evo models the benchmark in

four-wheel-drive technology. The

Eclipse Cross PHEV is very much

a worthy cross-country and allroad

conqueror, easily fitting into

the soft-roader category with its

188mm of ground clearance.

I never took the evaluation

car off-road as such, it was

pristine when I picked it up

and I didn’t want to take it back

overly grubby. But I did tackle a

short shingle road loop near the

Hororata River and can report it

has wonderful suspension control

over corrugations, affording a

controlled in-cabin ride.

On the seal the Eclipse Cross

cruises capably and quietly,

just as you would expect from

any of today’s SUVs, it is the

quintessential compact wagon

• Price – Mitsubishi Eclipse

Cross PHEV, $57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4545mm; width, 1805mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

2360cc, 94kW

(+60kW), 199Nm (+137Nm),

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 1.9l/100km

that will easily fulfil the needs of a

young family.

In terms of handling it steers

directly on its 18in Bridgestone

tyres and has controlled body balance

– even at 1.7m tall it doesn’t

generate gravitational force over

the fully independent four-strut

suspension.

The Eclipse Cross hybrid comes

in two specification levels, the

evaluation car was the top spec

VRX that has full leather trim,

heated seats front and rear, heated

steering wheel, electric sunroof,

head-up display and paddle

gearing shifters. Without those I

would be satisfied with the XLS

variant to save $8000.

However, if you do like a full

suite of gadgets the VRX is complete

inside with a raft of display

systems letting you know the

modes in which it is being driven

and energy saving benefits along

the way.

If safety is also a big priority for

you, take into account the Eclipse

Cross PHEV has been issued with

a five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

As time has served to prove

and this world of ours is keenly

focussed in reducing carbon

emissions to address climate

change, I’ve been told every

little bit to reduce the use of

fossil fuel will be beneficial.

That’s where Mitsubishi’s hybrid

system comes in, it is engineered

to draw heavily on electrical

current.

For me, it was easy to get into

the rhythm of charging every

night; taking the car back to the

dealership with over half a tank

of fuel is something that I rarely

achieve, especially so after driving

well over 500km. You see, the day

I was scheduled to take it back to

the dealership was day one of August’s

snap Covid-19 lockdown.

I ended up driving the PHEV for

almost four weeks.

If you enter now into discussions

about electric vehicles,

there are two topics that are at

the forefront of almost everyone’s

minds – longevity of the battery

pack and what models qualify for

the Government’s electric vehicle

subsidy.

Well, the Eclipse Cross PHEV

has a 10-year driveline warranty

and an eight-year/160,000

lithium-ion battery warranty,

these are peace of mind offerings,

and, yes, a buyer today can expect

Elevated Elegance

174 Soleares Ave, Mt Pleasant

Auction Sat 16 Oct at 12.30pm,

on site (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms, 2 living, 2 bathrooms,

3 toilets, 2 car garaging

www.rwferrymead.co.nz/OPA30102

Open Homes: Saturday 3.00pm-3.30pm

and Sunday 2.30pm-3.00pm

Desirably located on the upper slopes of

Mount Pleasant, this striking abode

maximises its superb vantage point to take in

panoramic views over the city and beyond

Pegasus Bay, to the Southern Alps and the

Kaikoura Ranges.

Impeccably presented and brilliantly configured

to facilitate harmonious family living, the

approx. 231m² floor plan features three bedrooms

and a family bathroom on the ground floor

accompanied by a secondary living room

that's well-suited as a children's escape.

The upper level hosts the expansive openplan

living zone along with a luxuriously

appointed master bedroom with ensuite and

double walk-in robes.

Complete with a walk-in pantry, the designer

kitchen offers an abundance of bench space,

premium appliances and an exceptional

coastal outlook. The open-plan living spaces

are ideally arranged for hosting social

gatherings and connect seamlessly with the

hardwood entertaining deck via sliders.

Warm and comfortable, this sunny home also

benefits from double glazing and central heating

throughout, while well-considered lighting

and smart wiring add further convenience.

Positioned on an approx. 971m² flat section

with drive-on access and plenty of off-street

parking as well as an internal access double

garage. The grounds feature lush lawns, a

treehouse and sandpit, plus ample room to

add a trampoline or swimming pool.

Established plantings, including thriving fruit

trees, ensures outdoor maintenance is kept to

a minimum.

Located near parks, beaches, the Ferrymead

retail hub, and Mt Pleasant Primary School,

this property promises an enviable coastal

lifestyle within easy reach of every possible

amenity.

This endlessly appealing home in a superior

location will undoubtedly prove popular.
