Heathcote’s hard-hitting<br />

Dan Stanley played<br />

with future Black Caps<br />

as a member of New<br />

Zealand’s under-19<br />

squad for the 2016<br />

World Cup, and now his<br />

representative ambitions<br />

have been reignited<br />

through belligerent<br />

batting displays in the<br />

Christchurch premiership<br />

competition. Chris<br />

leg side at St Albans Park, even<br />

though Heathcote were on the<br />

back foot, three down inside 11<br />

overs.<br />

Dan Stanley’s reputation<br />

preceded him to the wicket<br />

last Saturday, five balls into<br />

his innings there were five<br />

Lancaster Park players on the<br />

boundary, not that it proved<br />

a deterrent for Christchurch<br />

Anzac<br />

parades<br />

a Covid<br />

casualty<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

A STREET parade will not take<br />

place in Sumner or Akaroa this<br />

year, with the traditional Anzac<br />

Day dawn service a casualty as<br />

Covid-19 cases escalate.<br />

The Royal New Zealand<br />

Returned and Services’<br />

Association has decided<br />

alternative, lower key<br />

commemorations were more<br />

appropriate for April 25 as the<br />

Omicron variant spreads.<br />

“Anzac Day has certainly not<br />

been cancelled as such, but it<br />

will certainly be scaled right<br />

down to conform with Covid<br />

requirements. There will be no<br />

crowds, no parades,” said NZRSA<br />

Canterbury district president Stan<br />

Hansen.<br />

Sumner Redcliffs RSA will have<br />

a brief service at the memorial<br />

gates in Sumner at 11am on April<br />

25.<br />

It will be a shortened<br />

commemoration service. The Ode<br />

of Remembrance will be recited<br />

and reefs will be lain. There will<br />

also be a flag ceremony but with<br />

no speaker and no seating will be<br />

provided.<br />

FEARLESS, hard hitting and<br />

plenty of shovelling as an<br />

apprentice builder.<br />

That’s the formula that has<br />

propelled Dan Stanley to the<br />

top of the batting averages<br />

in premier club cricket this<br />

season (page 1).<br />

The Heathcote club man<br />

has developed a shovel shot<br />

which has been instrumental<br />

in his season aggregate so far<br />

of 1014 runs, comfortably a<br />

career best.<br />

“I’d say it comes down<br />

to playing with freedom, I<br />

suppose fearlessness helps,”<br />

he says.<br />

“I think that might<br />

have been a key to my<br />

concentration as well. I<br />

reckon I’ve also developed<br />

news<br />

a shovel shot, through the<br />

constant shovelling as an<br />

apprentice.”<br />

South African-born Stanley,<br />

who moved to New Zealand<br />

as a five-year-old, now hopes<br />

the weight of runs translates<br />

to winter training in the<br />

Encouraging start to pest control project<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A $10 MILLION pest-control<br />

operation has been launched<br />

at Kaitōrete Spit near Birdlings<br />

Flat, scoring 18 hedgehogs<br />

and one stoat in its first four<br />

nights.<br />

Pest Free Banks Peninsula staff<br />

are rolling out 280 traps along<br />

the 5500ha, 25km, spit in the<br />

coming five weeks.<br />

Last week they laid the<br />

first 50 traps, but not all were<br />

operational each night as they<br />

had to make improvements after<br />

gusts of wind and mice set some<br />

off.<br />

Project leader Sarah Wilson<br />

said on Friday she and fellow<br />

staff had been thrilled with<br />

the kill count so far, and were<br />

looking forward to ridding the<br />

area not only of hedgehogs and<br />

stoats, but also possums, feral<br />

cats, weasels and ferrets.<br />

“Hedgehogs might be known<br />

by some as Mrs Tiggy-Winkles,<br />

but in this country the number<br />

of lizards and important<br />

invertebrates they munch every<br />

night, along with eggs and<br />

chicks, is phenomenal,” Wilson<br />

said.<br />

“We were thrilled about the<br />

stoat (caught on the first night)<br />

in particular, because stoats are<br />

very problematic, especially for<br />

the banded dotterel.”<br />

The spit is a breeding site for<br />

BIODIVERSITY: Pest Free Banks Peninsula team members Georgia Grace (left) and<br />

Jayden Lum install cameras on Kaitōrete Spit, which is a breeding site for the banded<br />

dotterel and many other species.<br />

the banded dotterel and other<br />

bird species. It is home to two<br />

flightless moth species, both<br />

endemic to the spit, as well as the<br />

katipō, several lizard species, and<br />

threatened plants.<br />

It is highly regarded for its<br />

biodiversity, and was once a<br />

major source of food for tangata<br />

whenua and a key travel route for<br />

Ngāi Tahu.<br />

Team members are using a<br />

mixture of kill and live capture<br />

traps, which have remote<br />

reporting nodes to show when<br />

they have triggered.<br />

Wilson said the project had<br />

huge support from Taumutu<br />

Rūnanga. Members had been<br />

helping prevent reinvasion of the<br />

spit by supporting a community<br />

trapping project at Taumutu on<br />

the southern end.<br />

Since June last year, Taumutu<br />

residents had caught 27 feral<br />

cats in live traps and had them<br />

humanely euthanised.<br />

The five-year Pest Free Banks<br />

Peninsula programme comprises<br />

the spit and <strong>23</strong>,000ha in the<br />

Akaroa area called the extended<br />

wildside.<br />

Key funders behind the<br />

organisation are Environment<br />

Canterbury, Predator Free<br />

2050 and the Department of<br />

Conservation. Its ultimate goal<br />

is to free Banks Peninsula from<br />

mammalian pests by 2050.<br />

NEW RELEASES<br />

Run Rose Run<br />

the most eagerly anticipated novel of <strong>2022</strong> by dolly<br />

Parton and James Patterson<br />

From America’s most beloved superstar and its greatest storyteller - a thriller about a young singersongwriter<br />

on the rise and on the run, and determined to do whatever it takes to survive. FIND A FUTURE.<br />

LOSE A PAST. She’s a star on the<br />

rise, singing about the hard life<br />

behind her. She’s also on the run.<br />

Nashville is where she’s come to<br />

claim her destiny. It’s also where the<br />

darkness she’s fled might find her.<br />

And destroy her . . RUN ROSE RUN:<br />

a story glittering with danger and<br />

desire. Also available: an album<br />

of 12 original Dolly Parton songs<br />

made for the novel!<br />

The Paris Bookseller<br />

a sweeping story of love, friendship and betrayal in<br />

bohemian 1920s Paris by Kerri Maher<br />

The captivating story of a trailblazing young woman who fought against incredible odds to bring one of<br />

the most important books of the twentieth century to the world. For readers of The Paris Library,<br />

The Age of Light and The Paris Wife. PARIS, 1919. Young, bookish Sylvia Beach knows there is no<br />

greater city in the world than Paris. But when she opens an English-language bookshop on the bohemian<br />

Left Bank, Sylvia can’t yet know she is making history.<br />

Many leading writers of the day, from Ernest Hemingway to Gertrude Stein, consider Shakespeare and<br />

Company a second home. Here some of the most profound literary friendships blossom - and none more<br />

so than between James Joyce and Sylvia herself. When Joyce’s controversial novel Ulysses is banned,<br />

Sylvia determines to publish it through Shakespeare and Company.<br />

But the success and notoriety of publishing the most infamous book of the century comes at deep<br />

personal cost as Sylvia risks ruin, reputation and her heart in the name of the life-changing power of<br />

books..<br />

The Ghost Tattoo<br />

discovering the hidden truth of my father’s Holocaust by<br />

tony Bernard<br />

The profoundly moving story of a son’s quest to uncover his father’s Holocaust secret. To the outside<br />

world, Henry Bernard was a hard-working and beloved family doctor on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Yet<br />

he was also a Holocaust survivor whose life was profoundly affected by the experiences of his past. He<br />

took extreme steps for his family’s security, keeping a rifle near his bedroom and covering up his family’s<br />

Jewish origin. He was obsessed with paying off debt - the German word for debt being the same as<br />

the word for ‘guilt’. He kept his striped Auschwitz uniform with a picture of his mother in his wardrobe.<br />

These obsessions helped destroy his marriage and restricted any hope he had of conventional domestic<br />

happiness. But Henry had a bigger secret and a deeper shame about what he had done during the war.<br />

He suffered privately until he began returning to Germany and Poland to confront his past and come to<br />

terms with the deaths of his parents and of Halina, the love of his life. The Ghost Tattoo is the story of<br />

how Tony Bernard, Henry’s eldest son, went on a forty-year journey with his father to solve the mystery<br />

of why Henry was the way he was, and how he finally came to understand the desperate choices Henry<br />

had made in the ghetto to try to keep himself and his family alive.<br />

The Embroidered Book<br />

by Kate Heartfield<br />

A sweeping historical epic with a thread of magic, perfect for readers of THE FAMILIARS, THE BINDING,<br />

and THE MINIATURIST.<br />

‘Power is not something you are given. Power is something you take. When you are a woman, it is a<br />

little more difficult, that’s all’<br />

1768. Charlotte arrives in Naples to marry a man she has never met. Two years later, her sister Antoine<br />

is sent to France to marry another stranger. In the mirrored corridors of Versailles, they rename her<br />

Marie Antoinette. But the sisters are not powerless. When they were only children, Charlotte and Antoine<br />

discovered a book of spells - spells that seem to work, with dark and unpredictable consequences.<br />

In a world of vicious court politics, of discovery and dizzying change, Charlotte and Antoine use their<br />

secret skills to redefine their lives, becoming the most influential women of the age. But every spell<br />

requires a sacrifice. As love between the sisters turns to rivalry, they will send Europe spiralling into<br />

revolution. Brimming with romance, betrayal, and the hidden power of women, THE EMBROIDERED<br />

BOOK reveals and reimagines a dazzling period of history as you have never seen it before.<br />

Dancing with the Machine<br />

adventures of a rebel by Jo Morgan<br />

Extraordinary escapades from a late-life adventurer. Mountaineer, adventurer, avid motorcyclist and<br />

constant traveller, Jo Morgan has lived an extraordinary life. The youngest of eight children, Jo was<br />

brought up largely by her mum after her father died when she was only one, and she has always had<br />

an adventurous side. As soon as she turned 15, Jo got her driver licence and bought her first motorbike:<br />

the start of a lifelong love affair. After meeting her future husband, Gareth Morgan, Jo got married and<br />

had a baby. Instead of settling down, though, the couple bought a passenger bus to live in with their<br />

children, setting the scene for a life less ordinary. Jo, along with Gareth and friends, has driven a<br />

motorbike through more than 110 countries and visited nearly 140 countries in total. But she would<br />

leave her greatest adventures till later in life when she took up climbing in her late fifties. She set herself a<br />

goal of summiting all 24 of New Zealand’s 3000-metre-plus mountain peaks, with the help of her guide<br />

and friend Wolfgang, nicknamed The Machine. They would ascend all but two of them before tragedy<br />

struck, killing both Wolfgang and his colleague Martin. In Dancing with the Machine, Jo recounts the<br />

remarkable, often hair-raising and occasionally tragic story of her unconventional life.<br />

‘It’s a nice feeling to give’<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

AN 8-YEAR-OLD’S act<br />

of kindness has not gone<br />

unnoticed.<br />

Emilee Dawson wanted to<br />

make sure others waiting in<br />

line at the petrol station weren’t<br />

getting thirsty after experiencing<br />

a lengthy wait with her mum.<br />

Emilee and her mum Phee<br />

Dawson had been in line for<br />

about half an hour to get fuel<br />

from the Woolston Waitomo,<br />

because prices were set to rise<br />

that evening.<br />

When the pair arrived at<br />

their home just across the street<br />

Emilee asked if she could go and<br />

give out free drinks to people<br />

also waiting in line.<br />

“They were sitting out there<br />

all afternoon and I didn’t want<br />

them to be thirsty like I was,”<br />

Emilee said.<br />

She filled up two trays<br />

with cups of juice, Coke and<br />

lemonade and, with her mum,<br />

walked them across the street to<br />

hand out.<br />

Her proud mum said she<br />

thought it was very sweet her<br />

little girl wanted to do this for<br />

others.<br />

Her kind act was<br />

acknowledged a few days later<br />

when a package from Waitomo<br />

arrived on their doorstep,<br />

addressed to Emilee.<br />

Emilee was delighted by the<br />

surprise and said the kiwi teddy<br />

was her favourite.<br />

When asked why she wanted<br />

to give out drinks Emilee said:<br />

“Well, because people will like<br />

you and you will have friends<br />

and it’s a nice feeling to give to<br />

people.<br />

“I feel it’s better to give than<br />

receive even though I still<br />

got stuff, which was nice, but<br />

it felt better giving out the<br />

drinks.”<br />

KINDNESS: Emilee Dawson<br />

received a gift from<br />

Waitomo after handing<br />

out free drinks to people<br />

waiting in line for fuel.<br />

Sumner Redcliffs RSA<br />

secretary Olwyn Palmer said<br />

although its a shame not to have<br />

a public service they would<br />

be following the Government<br />

guidelines.<br />

“Everybody [in the RSA] is<br />

of the age they are very accepting<br />

of people’s health and respectful.<br />

We think that’s more important.<br />

“We are doing something and<br />

commemorating them,” Palmer<br />

said.<br />

Banks Peninsula RSA will be<br />

doing something similar.<br />

“That is just the way world<br />

is at the moment,” said Banks<br />

Peninsula RSA president Jim<br />

Coubroughand.<br />

Coubroughand said they would<br />

be placing the sand crosses at the<br />

memorials in Akaroa and Little<br />

River as they did two years ago.<br />

“We ask people when they’re<br />

out near memorials if they wish,<br />

to place a poppy in the sand<br />

cross,” he said.<br />

The global pandemic<br />

meant there was no public<br />

Community patrol ‘date night’ for Ken<br />

The community patrol<br />

group helps keep us<br />

safe. Reporter Emily<br />

Moorhouse catches<br />

up with Christchurch<br />

South Community<br />

Patrol leader Ken Bye<br />

WHEN KEN Bye isn’t cycling,<br />

reading or gardening, he’s out<br />

keeping the community safe.<br />

The 69-year-old, of Somerfield,<br />

is the leader of the Christchurch<br />

South Community Patrol, a role<br />

he finds very rewarding.<br />

Ken is originally from<br />

Southland and came to<br />

Christchurch in 1971 to study<br />

before becoming a teacher at<br />

Linwood College.<br />

There, he taught social studies,<br />

history and English for 37 years,<br />

and held various roles, including<br />

dean, head of department and<br />

faculty head before retiring in<br />

2014.<br />

However, Ken says he “failed<br />

retirement” as it was only two<br />

months before he was teaching<br />

again at Cashmere High School<br />

as a part-time reliever.<br />

After realising relief teaching<br />

wasn’t for him, he joined the<br />

patrol in 2015 with his wife<br />

Sue, who had come across a<br />

stall promoting the group at<br />

Barrington Mall.<br />

Ken had never heard of the<br />

LOOKOUT: Ken and Sue Bye getting ready for a patrol shift.<br />

patrol before joining, but after<br />

meeting with the chairman he<br />

and Sue signed up.<br />

Ken says patrol shifts vary, but<br />

he usually goes out three or four<br />

times a month, one of which he<br />

is accompanied by Sue.<br />

The couple often call it their<br />

“date night” when logging<br />

in to comms at the beginning<br />

of a shift, and enjoy each other’s<br />

company while keeping a<br />

watchful eye on the community.<br />

Ken recalls a couple of weeks<br />

ago they came across a drunk<br />

man, propped up against the<br />

Christchurch Casino, who had<br />

fallen off his scooter.<br />

They made sure he wasn’t hurt<br />

and had a safe way of getting<br />

home before heading on their<br />

way.<br />

“Between the two of us I think<br />

being able to give something<br />

back to the community is really,<br />

really important, and it gets<br />

you out of the house,” Ken<br />

says.<br />

He still remembers his first<br />

training shift with Sue and<br />

two other experienced<br />

patrollers.<br />

They were responding to an<br />

“agitated woman” in Pioneer<br />

PHOTO: STAR MEDIA<br />

Stadium car park who’d had her<br />

wallet and keys stolen by a man<br />

who was still in the stadium.<br />

The ordeal resulted in a 111<br />

call that required the patrollers<br />

to wait with the woman until<br />

police arrived.<br />

“Being out there, working with<br />

the police, seeing things and<br />

being able to supply evidence to<br />

the police that will actually make<br />

a difference as part of the bigger<br />

picture,” Ken says. “I really like<br />

that idea.”<br />

Although it wasn’t necessarily<br />

about the big dramatic cases but<br />

rather the more communityfocused<br />

issues, such as working<br />

closely with local shop owners<br />

about their concerns and getting<br />

waves from the community<br />

when out on patrol.<br />

“They’re the things that are far<br />

more important and satisfying<br />

than saying ‘I was on the spot’<br />

and we might’ve been part of<br />

leading to a conviction,” Ken<br />

says. “It’s making a difference<br />

by the little things, not the big<br />

things.”<br />

Ken became the leader of the<br />

patrol three years ago, a position<br />

he was shoulder-tapped for as<br />

the previous leader was taking a<br />

break.<br />

For Ken, the role is about<br />

working with the team to ensure<br />

each person is the best patroller<br />

they can be.<br />

Despite the fulfilment of<br />

being the leader of the patrol,<br />

Ken acknowledges it’s a role you<br />

never quite get away from with<br />

the admin and ongoing phone<br />

calls.<br />

However, he says this is minor<br />

compared to the satisfaction that<br />

comes from the job.<br />

“You never quite know what<br />

you’re going to come across,”<br />

Ken says. “It’s being able to<br />

think that you’re contributing<br />

to the safety of the community,<br />

which I think is really important.<br />

“It’s that ongoing sense of<br />

service and making a difference.”<br />

Eye-catching stats for prolific run-scorer<br />

TARGET: Dan Stanley hopes a prolific run-scoring<br />

campaign with Heathcote will resurrect his<br />

representative career. PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE<br />

• From page 1<br />

The 25-year-old ran the gauntlet,<br />

as he has throughout the season, his<br />

third scoring shot was a lofted six<br />

down the ground before he bisected<br />

two of the boundary riders for four.<br />

Then it was over – a skied swipe<br />

was taken by Oscar Wilson as<br />

Lancaster Park’s players sighed with<br />

relief.<br />

Stanley scored 13 from seven balls<br />

– including a streaky french cut –<br />

to list his season aggregate to 1014<br />

runs, comfortably a career best.<br />

Quizzed on the cornerstones of<br />

this season’s run glut, the apprentice<br />

builder offered a couple of explanations<br />

“I’d say it comes down to playing<br />

with freedom, I suppose fearlessness<br />

helps.”<br />

Likewise, his occupation.<br />

“I think that might have been a<br />

key to my concentration as well. I<br />

reckon I’ve also developed a shovel<br />

shot, through the constant shovelling<br />

as an apprentice,” he said.<br />

That new weapon has been a<br />

significant contributor to one of<br />

Stanley’s eye-catching stats as the<br />

2021-22 season has one day – presumably<br />

one last knock – remaining<br />

on Saturday.<br />

Leading into the final day against<br />

Lancaster Park, the left hander had<br />

slugged 67 sixes; Wilson was the<br />

closest challenger with 32.<br />

“A lot of that’s down to the slog<br />

sweep shovel shot I’ve got going on,”<br />

said Stanley, who also boasted the<br />

highest strike rate per hundred balls<br />

this season, 146.77 before the final<br />

round of the two-day competition<br />

got under way.<br />

He needs 31 runs on Saturday to<br />

eclipse Wilson’s aggregate of 1044<br />

last season and regardless of whether<br />

he posts the highest tally since<br />

statistics combined the one and<br />

two-day formats (and then T20) in<br />

1981-82, the campaign has been an<br />

individual triumph.<br />

‘I’ve also developed a shovel<br />

shot, through the constant<br />

shovelling as an apprentice’<br />

– Dan Stanley<br />

Stanley comfortably posted a<br />

career high, exceeding last season’s<br />

769 at 32.04, the fourth time he has<br />

amassed more than 500 runs since<br />

2017-2018.<br />

Scott Duggan (Lancaster Park) is<br />

the second highest run scorer with<br />

750 while Stanley’s average (48.28)<br />

is not inflated by not outs, he has<br />

only one from 22 innings.<br />

Centuries haven’t provided an<br />

outlier either, Stanley has made<br />

two 100s with a best of 138, a blistering<br />

75-ball assault including 16<br />

boundaries and seven sixes against<br />

East Christchurch Shirley in the<br />

rain-shortened two-day game at<br />

Heathcote Domain in November.<br />

“Being aggressive has always<br />

been part of my game, but it’s been<br />

a good season,” said Stanley, who<br />

switched from Old Boys Collegians<br />

last season because he was living<br />

with family in Heathcote.<br />

South African-born Stanley,<br />

who moved to New Zealand as a<br />

five-year-old, now hopes weight of<br />

runs translates to winter training in<br />

the provincial A team set-up for the<br />

former Canterbury under-17 and<br />

under-19 representative.<br />

“I’d like to be in that set-up,<br />

hopefully one-day I’ll get an opportunity,<br />

it’s something I’ve strived<br />

for,” said Stanley, who played in the<br />

same under-19 NZ team as future<br />

Black Caps Glenn Phillips, Rachin<br />

Ravindra and Finn Allen at the<br />

World Cup in 2016.<br />

Heathcote coach Mark Lane believed<br />

promotion was warranted.<br />

“If he’s given the opportunity at<br />

the level above he has the potential to<br />

step up and do well. He’s putting runs<br />

together more consistently and he’s<br />

proven he has the ability to be a big hitter<br />

and score quickly,” said Lane, who<br />

coached Stanley in the Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School first XI.<br />

“It’s now up to the Canterbury<br />

selectors to say: ‘Do we give this guy<br />

a go and see whether he can make<br />

the jump to the next level?’.”<br />

“You don’t come across batsmen<br />

like that often. He’s just got such<br />

power.”<br />

Heathcote club captain David<br />

Stack agreed after copping punishment<br />

during training at Heathcote<br />

Domain.<br />

“I’ve bowled to him a lot in the<br />

nets this season and it does have<br />

the feel of being a five-year-old and<br />

bowling to your dad,” he said.<br />

“He hits the ball really hard.”<br />

Coastal Pathway full of complexities<br />

Hanno<br />

Sander<br />

from the<br />

Christchurch<br />

Coastal<br />

Pathway<br />

Group<br />

updates readers on the<br />

project<br />

YOU’VE PROBABLY noticed,<br />

the final section of Te Ara Ihutai<br />

Christchurch Coastal is now<br />

under construction.<br />

It’s taken more than a decade<br />

and the passion of scores of<br />

people to get to this point. In the<br />

coming months I’ll use this column<br />

to keep you up to date with<br />

the pathway, the projects that<br />

we’re working on and answer<br />

any questions that come up.<br />

First some background. Right<br />

after the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake, the Christchurch<br />

Coastal Pathway Group was<br />

founded on the vision to create a<br />

4m-wide shared pathway to connect<br />

people, land, and the sea.<br />

A memorandum of understanding<br />

between the CCPG<br />

and CCC was signed and the<br />

group formed a governance<br />

team with the city council and<br />

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board who meet<br />

monthly.<br />

Our CCPG members are<br />

publicly elected volunteers<br />

passionate about creating an<br />

internationally high standard<br />

coastal pathway extending from<br />

Ferrymead Bridge to Scarborough<br />

Beach.<br />

Shortly after I was elected chair<br />

of the CCPG, city councillor Sara<br />

Templeton informed me that the<br />

project was selected to receive<br />

funding from Ōtākaro to complete<br />

the project as part of the Government<br />

shovel-ready funding.<br />

Since then, the CCPG has<br />

worked diligently with the<br />

city council to finalise detailed<br />

construction plans. We’ve jointly<br />

held several community outreach<br />

events to review detailed<br />

plans with the community. To<br />

ensure that we preserve existing<br />

community treasures like the<br />

yacht club beach, the historical<br />

wall, and our estuary we’ve<br />

worked closely with various<br />

community groups.<br />

“Jewels” are our term for further<br />

enhancements to the basic<br />

path – in the past we’ve fundraised<br />

and installed plantings,<br />

seatings, bike stands – but we’re<br />

working on even more for the<br />

future, there will be more about<br />

that in a future column.<br />

Late last year Fulton Hogan<br />

was awarded the tender by our<br />

partners at city council. They’ve<br />

already completed some exploratory<br />

excavation to guide future<br />

efforts and are about to start on<br />

upgrading the sewer and water<br />

services west of Shag Rock to<br />

make room for the cantilevered<br />

pathway in that section. They’ll<br />

be completing some of this work<br />

at night-time to reduce traffic<br />

impact and minimise disruption<br />

to the public. They need to do<br />

this work now because penguins<br />

that had been nesting near the<br />

worksite have now left their<br />

nests – this project if is full of<br />

complexities.<br />

Please look after our road<br />

workers by sticking to the reduced<br />

30km/h speed limit when<br />

driving through the roadworks<br />

site.<br />

Also look for merging cyclists<br />

and pedestrians at temporary<br />

crossings.<br />

Reacting to Little River fire siren in 60sec<br />

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

continues its series on<br />

our fire chiefs. Reporter<br />

Kristie Boland talks to<br />

Little River Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade chief John<br />

Genefaas<br />

IT’S LESS than a minute’s<br />

drive in a straight line for John<br />

Genefaas to get to the Little River<br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade.<br />

It’s less than a minute to get<br />

to most places in the small rural<br />

town, but that’s just how Genefaas<br />

likes it.<br />

With a population of just<br />

under 300, it’s a tight-knit community.<br />

“It’s just a different atmosphere<br />

than Canterbury. I personally<br />

like it because it’s a smaller community,<br />

you know more people,”<br />

Genefaas said.<br />

Originally from Holland, when<br />

Genefaas was four-years-old,<br />

his father saw an advertisement<br />

in a newspaper for a job in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

The Genefaas family packed<br />

up their belongings and moved<br />

to New Zealand to settle in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Genefaas, the middle child of<br />

six, said he felt like he fitted in as<br />

a Kiwi right from the get go.<br />

Although he said he has kept<br />

one Dutch attribute, he doesn’t<br />

beat around the bush and calls it<br />

how it is.<br />

“I call a spade a spade,” he said.<br />

Growing up, his family lived<br />

beside the Bottle Lake plantation,<br />

Burwood.<br />

“There was lots of land we<br />

could play on. We weren’t really<br />

allowed there so we used to get<br />

chased out of there,” Genefaas<br />

said.<br />

Genefaas said he was never<br />

really into sport or the outdoors<br />

growing up. But in his teenage<br />

years he did enjoy a few drinks<br />

with his mates.<br />

After high school, Genefaas<br />

worked on a farm for a while in<br />

Marshland.<br />

When he reached his early 20s,<br />

he and his brother made friends<br />

with a couple of Aussies who<br />

were touring New Zealand. The<br />

brothers later decided to go and<br />

LOYAL: John Genefaas has been part of the Little River Volunteer Fire Brigade for 29 years.<br />

visit their friends in Australia<br />

where Genefaas ended up staying<br />

for six years.<br />

He took up many roles there,<br />

one being a milkman, another<br />

working on the oil rigs.<br />

Genefaas was married and<br />

later divorced while in Australia.<br />

He had two children Jeremy and<br />

Raymond from his first marriage<br />

that came home with him to<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Genefaas met his current wife,<br />

Christine, whom he has been<br />

married to for 35 years and had<br />

two more boys with, Allan and<br />

Izaak. Christine also already had<br />

a daughter Maxine.<br />

All of their children are now in<br />

their mid-30s to early-40s and some<br />

have had children of their own.<br />

When Izaak was 18 he joined<br />

the fire brigade with his father.<br />

He now lives in Canada with his<br />

wife and two children.<br />

Genefaas and Christine lived<br />

in Southshore which Genefaas<br />

said felt quite rural. It was from<br />

there they decided it might be<br />

nice to move out to the country.<br />

Living in the country meant<br />

growing up, the Genefaas’ kids<br />

got to enjoy an abundance of<br />

pets including sheep, goats,<br />

ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, cats<br />

and a dog.<br />

Genefaas, now works maintaining<br />

the Wainui YMCA.<br />

He has been a part of the Little<br />

River Volunteer Fire Brigade for<br />

29 years, deputy chief for 10 of<br />

those years and chief for three.<br />

He joined because like most<br />

volunteers, he wanted to help his<br />

community.<br />

Genefaas said the brigade is a<br />

tight-knit group. He enjoys the<br />

camaraderie and the personal<br />

development that comes with<br />

being a part of the fire and emergency<br />

organisation.<br />

Genefaas lives very close to the<br />

station.<br />

“You hear the siren. I’d hear it<br />

go at night and think I’m glad I<br />

don’t have to get up but then it<br />

turned at that I joined and then I<br />

did have to get up,” he said.<br />

The Little River brigade is<br />

currently low on numbers with<br />

only 14 people and Genefaas encourages<br />

those interested to join<br />

them, especially those who can<br />

be available during the day.<br />

“We take all sorts of people.<br />

We’d love to get some more<br />

women in the brigade. We have<br />

one woman there now and she is<br />

probably the most capable in the<br />

brigade,” Genefaas said.<br />

– Seeing the Lines – we protect<br />

what we know, we know what we<br />

<strong>March</strong> 10am-4pm. By artists Karen<br />

Greenslade, Carolyn Currie and Vic<br />

Mangan. Through its responses to<br />

the physical landscape and natural<br />

elements of the Banks Peninsula,<br />

Seeing the Lines reframes the region’s<br />

native Taonga by foregrounding it<br />

in the local environment and the<br />

art of this exhibition. In this group<br />

show at Stoddart Cottage Gallery,<br />

Karen Greenslade, Carolyn Currie and<br />

Vic Mangan seek to counter plant<br />

blindness, when plants exist as a<br />

backdrop to our lives and art prioritises<br />

the human figure. The artists have<br />

moved their collaborative art practices<br />

away from purely decorative floral<br />

vistas, to an engagement with the<br />

less obviously aesthetically engaging<br />

endemic plants of the place inhabited,<br />

reflecting the contemporary shift in<br />

concerns towards ecology and the local<br />

environment. Stoddart Cottage Gallery,<br />

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

Treasures from the past:<br />

Shackleton and the Endurance<br />

NEWS 19<br />

WITH THE news on <strong>March</strong> 10<br />

that the Antarctic exploration<br />

ship Endurance had been found<br />

3000m deep in the Weddell Sea,<br />

Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum<br />

highlights their collection of this<br />

item – a portrait of Sir Ernest<br />

Shackleton, presented by the<br />

explorer himself to the Lyttelton<br />

Branch of the British and<br />

Foreign Sailors Society, possibly<br />

in 1907.<br />

THe museum would like to<br />

hear from anyone who has<br />

information that can confirm<br />

when Shackleton donated his<br />

portrait.<br />

The team of Endurance22, led<br />

by the Falklands Maritime Heritage<br />

Trust, is responsible for the<br />

incredible achievement of finding<br />

and filming the vessel. The<br />

ship is in a remarkably well-preserved<br />

condition due to the lack<br />

of wood-eating organisms in the<br />

freezing temperatures. Largely<br />

intact, she lies just 6.5km from<br />

the coordinates originally taken<br />

by sextant by New Zealander<br />

Frank Worsley.<br />

Shackleton took part in the<br />

voyage of the Discovery in<br />

1901-1903 led by Robert Falcon<br />

Scott, during which he, Scott and<br />

Wilson all suffered significant<br />

ill health due to snow blindness,<br />

Portrait of Sir Ernest Shackleton, presented by him to the<br />

Lyttelton Branch of the British and Foreign Sailors Society,<br />

circa 1907.<br />

frostbite and scurvy in a march<br />

towards the South Pole.<br />

Once back at the ship, Shackleton<br />

was sent by Scott on an<br />

early return to New Zealand<br />

to convalesce. The expedition<br />

highlighted the differences in<br />

the two men’s personalities and<br />

leadership styles – Shackleton<br />

was popular among the men,<br />

strong under pressure, and Scott<br />

possibly resented that.<br />

That journey clearly fuelled<br />

Shackleton’s determination to<br />

return to Antarctica; after a few<br />

years spent in journalism and<br />

politics, he achieved this ambition<br />

with the 1907-1909 Nimrod<br />

expedition.<br />

Together with Wild, Marshall<br />

and Adams, Shackleton attained<br />

a new southern latitude just<br />

112km shy of the pole and found<br />

the Beardmore Glacier and the<br />

south polar plateau.<br />

Other members of the expedition<br />

– Edgeworth David,<br />

Douglas Mawson, and Alistair<br />

Mackay, thought they identified<br />

the South Magnetic Pole and<br />

made the first successful ascent<br />

of Mt Erebus.<br />

On his return to England,<br />

Shackleton was hailed a hero,<br />

gave lectures and made many<br />

social appearances; activities<br />

which he also undertook in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

His fame enabled him to fundraise,<br />

mainly from private donations,<br />

for his next expedition;<br />

the grandly named Imperial<br />

Trans-Antarctic Expedition,<br />

1914–1917.<br />

The goal was to cross Antarctica<br />

from the Weddell to the<br />

Ross Sea, via the South Pole.<br />

Two ships were involved, the<br />

Endurance captained by Frank<br />

Worsley, and the Aurora, led by<br />

Lieutenant J Stenhouse.<br />

Disaster struck in January 1915<br />

when the Endurance became<br />

stuck in severe conditions in the<br />

ice floe of the Weddell Sea.<br />

The hope was that the ship<br />

would be released from the ice’s<br />

frozen grip in spring, but in<br />

October it became obvious that<br />

she was being crushed by the extreme<br />

pressure and in November<br />

she sank beneath the surface.<br />

Photographer Frank Hurley<br />

documented the ship’s demise<br />

and the men’s plight camping<br />

on the constantly moving and<br />

shrinking floes in many haunting<br />

images.<br />

The incredible story of the<br />

men’s perilous lifeboat journey<br />

to Elephant Island, survival there<br />

and subsequent 1300km journey<br />

across the open sea to South<br />

Georgia and ultimate rescue, is<br />

one for another day.<br />

The hardships of those experiences<br />

did not diminish Shackleton’s<br />

passion for the south and in<br />

1921, in spite of health problems<br />

exacerbated by drinking, he<br />

embarked from England on the<br />

Quest.<br />

Tragically, he died suddenly of<br />

a heart attack on board that ship<br />

in South Georgia on January 5,<br />

1922, at the age of 47 and was<br />

buried there at Grytviken.<br />

How fitting that his ship<br />

should be found 100 years after<br />

his death.<br />

No Prior Sale<br />

Observers may be surprised to find this quintessential<br />

Lyttelton cottage, tucked behind a<br />

picket fence, is barely six years young.<br />

Retaining the charm and character of an<br />

earlier era, including high ceilings, periodstyle<br />

windows and a verandah complete with<br />

fretwork, you also gain the considerable<br />

comfort of current construction methodology.<br />

Contemporary hues and timber-toned<br />

flooring contribute a fresh aesthetic, and the<br />

efficient floorplan is complemented by fresh<br />

paintwork, new drapes, and just-laid carpet.<br />

Open plan living borders a practical dine-in<br />

kitchen, with warmth infusing the home<br />

courtesy of double glazing and a cosy heat<br />

pump.<br />

Both bedrooms are doubles, conveniently<br />

containing built-in wardrobes, and the<br />

streamlined bathroom incorporates laundry<br />

facilities.<br />

It's an easy transition out the back door and<br />

down the ramp to a low-maintenance backyard,<br />

where the freehold parcel also includes a<br />

sizable storage shed and clothesline.<br />

From the quaint front porch, you'll catch sight<br />

of the bustling harbour and in less than two<br />

blocks you're in the midst of London Street's<br />

eateries and services, not to mention the famed<br />

weekend Farmer's Market.<br />

No need for a car when everything is so<br />

walkable, from public transport links to the<br />

network of Port Hills hiking and biking trails,<br />

and in-zone Lyttelton Primary School is just<br />

down the street.<br />

The vibrant community of Lyttelton attracts a<br />

dedicated following, and if this entry level<br />

abode tempts you to join them, we recommend<br />

you inspect without delay. Contact me for more<br />

French flair to the fore in Citroen C4<br />

I’VE BEEN hearing horror<br />

stories from new car buyers,<br />

those who have been waiting for<br />

almost a year for cars they have<br />

ordered.<br />

Nearly all of the world’s car<br />

makers have been affected by<br />

component supply shortages<br />

due to Covid-19 creating<br />

manufacturing issues;<br />

subsequently, lengthy wait lists<br />

have developed.<br />

To top it off there’s a<br />

distribution issue globally and<br />

none more so than in New<br />

Zealand where it’s been reported<br />

that at any given time thousands<br />

of cars are waiting to be<br />

transported island to island.<br />

It’s the high volume distributors<br />

that have been affected most,<br />

companies that have smaller<br />

turnovers seem to be soldiering<br />

on with just enough product to<br />

keep the accountants happy.<br />

At a local level the Armstrong<br />

Motor Group is ticking over<br />

nicely with its new car range –<br />

Subaru, Peugeot and Citroen.<br />

I’ve been very fortunate to have<br />

sampled five models from this<br />

dealership in the last few months<br />

with their new demonstrator<br />

models being made available to<br />

me, and I’m most grateful for<br />

that.<br />

One to come my way from the<br />

Armstrong showroom is Citroen’s<br />

new C4, a cheeky liftback that<br />

almost borders the sport utility<br />

vehicle market.<br />

As mentioned, Citroen isn’t a<br />

big player in New Zealand, but<br />

if you study the product line-up<br />

you’ll find practical, affordable<br />

vehicles that are thoroughly<br />

appealing through their design<br />

flair. I guess you’d expect nothing<br />

less from this French car maker<br />

which has had a reputation for<br />

bold styling cues, designs that<br />

are a considerable part of their<br />

appeal.<br />

The C4 arrives here in just one<br />

specification and it gets a 1.2-litre<br />

turbocharged three-cylinder<br />

engine which has been used<br />

widely across Citroen’s range and<br />

in some Peugeot models.<br />

I can safely say the threecylinder<br />

layout is it is one of my<br />

favourite engine types and in the<br />

C4 it is quiet, smooth, and doesn’t<br />

overly let the occupants know of<br />

its design through the harmonics<br />

often associated with its three-pot<br />

layout.<br />

The twin-camshaft petrol<br />

engine is listed with a 114kW<br />

power rating along with<br />

240Nm of torque, these are<br />

healthy outputs, and if you<br />

take into account where they<br />

are developed – 5500rpm and<br />

USER-FRIENDLY: The interior features a clever tablet holder.<br />

CITROEN C4: Bold styling cues and aggressive frontal treatment.<br />

1750rpm respectively – then<br />

there becomes an immediate<br />

sense of acceleration. Add in<br />

the light weight of the C4 at just<br />

1267kg and it feels feisty and<br />

lively. Citroen claim a standstill<br />

to 100km/h time of 8.9sec, which<br />

is all the acceleration you need in<br />

today’s motoring environment.<br />

Drive is channelled through<br />

a conventional eight-speed<br />

automatic transmission, if you<br />

take into account the seemingly<br />

endless supply of ratios, there is<br />

reasonable harmony and gearing<br />

which enhances that eager engine<br />

feel, along with healthy fuel<br />

economy.<br />

The latter is listed by Citroen<br />

at 6.1-litres usage per 100km on<br />

a combined cycle average. The<br />

evaluation car’s dash display<br />

was constantly sitting around<br />

7.4l/100km, which was a good<br />

figure given the car was brand<br />

new and I guess somewhat tight.<br />

If you also take into<br />

consideration the C4’s weight,<br />

then it has benefits in all areas,<br />

the engine isn’t working hard<br />

to maintain momentum, hence<br />

the light fuel load, there is also<br />

a feel through the chassis and<br />

suspension that promotes a<br />

sporty sensation.<br />

The suspension deserves a<br />

worthy mention, it gets what<br />

Citroen describe as a progressive<br />

hydraulic cushion system.<br />

Put simply, what appear<br />

• Price – Citroen C4, $41,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4360mm; width,<br />

1800mm; height, 1525mm<br />

• Configuration – Threecylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1199cc, 114kW,<br />

240Nm, eight-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km<br />

to be conventional shock<br />

absorbers actually incorporate<br />

two hydraulic stops, one for<br />

compression and one for<br />

decompression, they dissipate<br />

energy from road bumps, helping<br />

to create a smooth ride.<br />

In effect, the ride is well<br />

cushioned. There is a road I<br />

often eke out when on a highway<br />

journey, it’s near Darfield and<br />

tree roots have been growing<br />

under the road for a distance<br />

of about 1km making the road<br />

rippled which makes for a good<br />

suspension test, the C4 has a<br />

controlled, comfortable ride.<br />

The C4’s styling isn’t radical as<br />

it could be, but it is a departure<br />

from the norm. The interior is<br />

modernistic and minimalist in<br />

its detailing, however, it all works<br />

cosmetically.<br />

I particularly like the<br />

panoramic roof which has an<br />

electric internal blind and it very<br />

much adds to the character of<br />

the car, it is a $2990 option, but it<br />

represents the ideology of C4.<br />

In terms of specification, the C4<br />

is also well appointed. You get all<br />

of the kit you’d expect on a $42k<br />

car with many of the functions<br />

operated by voice recognition<br />

technology.<br />

Satellite navigation is fitted<br />

along with head-up display,<br />

steering wheel-mounted paddle<br />

gear shifters and driver-selectable<br />

drive modes – eco, normal and<br />

sport. The C4 incorporates all<br />

things practical in a modern,<br />

stylish package. There is one<br />

feature that really appealed to my<br />

wife as a passenger and that is the<br />

Smart Pad Support device, a clever<br />

retractable system that connects<br />

to the dashboard, enabling the<br />

front passenger to securely<br />

attach their tablet for use on any<br />

journey, when not in use it slides<br />

seamlessly back into the facia.<br />

For other passengers the C4 is<br />

a compact five-seater, but there<br />

is also good cargo room for<br />

the inevitable items we always<br />

travel with. On that subject, the<br />

rear load space can extend from<br />

380-litres to 1250-litres.<br />

Built with traditional Citroen<br />

values, the C4 is a funky purchase<br />

for anyone who dares to be<br />

different. The last model sold<br />

well in New Zealand, and I’m<br />

expecting the newcomer to be<br />

just as popular.<br />

has motoring covered!<br />

Working hard for<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

It is a real privilege to have been elected as your local MP.<br />

As your MP, I think it is important to keep in touch with my<br />

constituents to let you know about the work that I am doing, both<br />

here in Banks Peninsula or representing you in Wellington.<br />

Since being elected, it’s been a privilege to work with the<br />

community on some important issues.<br />

The Lyttelton community has secured a big win<br />

with a law change to provide fairer funding for seafarer’s<br />

welfare centres. So shipping companies help cover the costs of<br />

meeting our obligations to seafarers in our ports. In the Opawaho-<br />

Heathcote catchment, the Cashmere Stream Working Group has<br />

secured $1.6 million for community-lead ecological restoration<br />

through the Jobs for Nature scheme.<br />

Te Ara Ihutai, the Christchurch Coastal Pathway is getting closer<br />

and closer to completion, with Government’s Shovel Ready Funding<br />

scheme delivering $15.8 million to this project which will link up<br />

the bays for walking and cycling.<br />

And there’s other issues we’re still working hard to<br />

get an outcome:<br />

I’m standing alongside the Bromley community as they<br />

fight to move the Council’s odorous compost plant<br />

that’s been affecting their lives for far too long.<br />

Traffic safety is a big concern for residents: in Woolston,<br />

residents living along Radley Street have told me that they think<br />

their street has too many trucks and too many people driving too<br />

fast. In Halswell, I’ve raised traffic safety along the Halswell Road<br />

corridor with Waka Kotahi. As the Halswell area grows, we need<br />

investment in safer streets.<br />

On the Peninsula, from Cass <strong>Bay</strong> to Goughs <strong>Bay</strong>, digital<br />

connectivity is a massive issue. Whether that’s raising the issue<br />

of cell phone towers through the Rural Connectivity group or<br />

advocating for broadband rollouts, I’m committed to seeing a<br />

connected Peninsula.<br />

If there’s a way<br />

you think we could<br />

work together to<br />

solve a problem in<br />

your community,<br />

please get in touch.<br />

Strong communities<br />

and local heroes<br />

The best part of this job has been connecting<br />

with residents and community groups —<br />

Whether that’s local schools, churches, community sheds, local firefighters, community<br />

patrols, residents associations or community centres. With COVID-19 the way we connect with<br />

each other is different sometimes, but please don’t hesitate to reach out.<br />

Here’s a few of<br />

the community stars<br />

I’ve had the privilege<br />

to meet this term.<br />

Steve Bush from Trees for Canterbury.<br />

Trees for Canterbury is a nursery with purpose:<br />

growing native trees for ecological restoration and<br />

providing pathways to employment. It was a pleasure<br />

to visit this Woolston enterprise<br />

and meet manager Steve Bush.<br />

Sikh community.<br />

Our wonderful neighbours down Ferry Road<br />

at Gurudwara Singh Sabha Christchurch<br />

transformed their place of worship into a pop-up<br />

vaccine clinic – they have proudly had 3000 people<br />

so far come in for their vaccinations and delicious<br />

food! Thank you so much.<br />

Pop-up Vaccine Clinic at Ferry Road New World.<br />

The Ferry Road New World stepped up to help<br />

out with the vaccine drive, and more recently the<br />

booster drive, by hosting this pop-up vaccine clinic.<br />

It was a pleasure to bring the Prime Minister down<br />

and show her some Woolston hospitality!<br />

Local Community Patrollers.<br />

With Police Minister Hon Poto Williams, I met our<br />

community patrollers. It’s a voluntary role that<br />

see these stars head out to keep an eye on their<br />

neighbourhoods and keep our communities safe.<br />

Alan and Ollie from Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s Football Club.<br />

Sport is a big part of our lives here in Banks<br />

Peninsula, whether that’s surfing off Taylor’s Mistake,<br />

cricket at the Heathcote Domain or Chatham Cup<br />

football on Garrick Park – it’s about balance in our<br />

lives and it’s about social connection. Ferrymead<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s are a great community club.
