That’s the formula that has

The Heathcote club man

has developed a shovel shot

which has been instrumental

in his season aggregate so far

of 1014 runs, comfortably a

career best.

“I’d say it comes down

Encouraging start to pest control project

• By Susan Sandys

A $10 MILLION pest-control

operation has been launched

at Kaitōrete Spit near Birdlings

and one stoat in its first four


Pest Free Banks Peninsula staff

are rolling out 280 traps along

the 5500ha, 25km, spit in the

coming five weeks.

Last week they laid the

first 50 traps, but not all were

operational each night as they

had to make improvements after

gusts of wind and mice set some


Project leader Sarah Wilson

said on Friday she and fellow

staff had been thrilled with

the kill count so far, and were

looking forward to ridding the

area not only of hedgehogs and

stoats, but also possums, feral

cats, weasels and ferrets.

“Hedgehogs might be known

by some as Mrs Tiggy-Winkles,

but in this country the number

of lizards and important

invertebrates they munch every

night, along with eggs and

chicks, is phenomenal,” Wilson


“We were thrilled about the

stoat (caught on the first night)

in particular, because stoats are

very problematic, especially for

the banded dotterel.”

The spit is a breeding site for

the banded dotterel and other

bird species. It is home to two

flightless moth species, both

endemic to the spit, as well as the

katipō, several lizard species, and

threatened plants.

It is highly regarded for its

biodiversity, and was once a

major source of food for tangata

whenua and a key travel route for

Ngāi Tahu.

Team members are using a

mixture of kill and live capture

traps, which have remote

reporting nodes to show when

Wilson said the project had

huge support from Taumutu

Rūnanga. Members had been

helping prevent reinvasion of the

trapping project at Taumutu on

the southern end.

Since June last year, Taumutu

residents had caught 27 feral

humanely euthanised.

The Paris Bookseller

a sweeping story of love, friendship and betrayal in

bohemian 1920s Paris by Kerri Maher

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

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

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

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

Left Bank, Sylvia can’t yet know she is making history.

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

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

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

Sylvia determines to publish it through Shakespeare and Company.

But the success and notoriety of publishing the most infamous book of the century comes at deep

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


The Ghost Tattoo

discovering the hidden truth of my father’s Holocaust by

tony Bernard

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

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

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

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

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

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

These obsessions helped destroy his marriage and restricted any hope he had of conventional domestic

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

He suffered privately until he began returning to Germany and Poland to confront his past and come to

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

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

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

had made in the ghetto to try to keep himself and his family alive.

The Embroidered Book

by Kate Heartfield

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


‘Power is not something you are given. Power is something you take. When you are a woman, it is a

little more difficult, that’s all’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

revolution. Brimming with romance, betrayal, and the hidden power of women, THE EMBROIDERED

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

Dancing with the Machine

adventures of a rebel by Jo Morgan

Extraordinary escapades from a late-life adventurer. Mountaineer, adventurer, avid motorcyclist and

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

remarkable, often hair-raising and occasionally tragic story of her unconventional life.

Emilee Dawson wanted to

Community patrol ‘date night’ for Ken

The community patrol

group helps keep us

safe. Reporter Emily

Moorhouse catches

up with Christchurch

South Community

Patrol leader Ken Bye

WHEN KEN Bye isn’t cycling,

reading or gardening, he’s out

keeping the community safe.

The 69-year-old, of Somerfield,

is the leader of the Christchurch

South Community Patrol, a role

he finds very rewarding.

Ken is originally from

Southland and came to

Christchurch in 1971 to study

before becoming a teacher at

Linwood College.

There, he taught social studies,

history and English for 37 years,

and held various roles, including

dean, head of department and

faculty head before retiring in


However, Ken says he “failed

retirement” as it was only two

months before he was teaching

again at Cashmere High School

as a part-time reliever.

After realising relief teaching

wasn’t for him, he joined the

patrol in 2015 with his wife

Sue, who had come across a

stall promoting the group at

Barrington Mall.

Ken had never heard of the

LOOKOUT: Ken and Sue Bye getting ready for a patrol shift.

patrol before joining, but after

meeting with the chairman he

and Sue signed up.

Ken says patrol shifts vary, but

he usually goes out three or four

times a month, one of which he

is accompanied by Sue.

The couple often call it their

“date night” when logging

in to comms at the beginning

of a shift, and enjoy each other’s

company while keeping a

watchful eye on the community.

Ken recalls a couple of weeks

ago they came across a drunk

man, propped up against the

Christchurch Casino, who had

fallen off his scooter.

They made sure he wasn’t hurt

and had a safe way of getting

home before heading on their


“Between the two of us I think

being able to give something

back to the community is really,

really important, and it gets

you out of the house,” Ken


He still remembers his first

training shift with Sue and

two other experienced


They were responding to an

“agitated woman” in Pioneer


Stadium car park who’d had her

wallet and keys stolen by a man

who was still in the stadium.

The ordeal resulted in a 111

call that required the patrollers

to wait with the woman until

police arrived.

“Being out there, working with

the police, seeing things and

being able to supply evidence to

the police that will actually make

a difference as part of the bigger

picture,” Ken says. “I really like

that idea.”

Although it wasn’t necessarily

about the big dramatic cases but

rather the more communityfocused

issues, such as working

closely with local shop owners

about their concerns and getting

waves from the community

when out on patrol.

“They’re the things that are far

more important and satisfying

than saying ‘I was on the spot’

and we might’ve been part of

leading to a conviction,” Ken

says. “It’s making a difference

by the little things, not the big


Ken became the leader of the

patrol three years ago, a position

he was shoulder-tapped for as

the previous leader was taking a


For Ken, the role is about

working with the team to ensure

each person is the best patroller

they can be.

Despite the fulfilment of

being the leader of the patrol,

Ken acknowledges it’s a role you

never quite get away from with

the admin and ongoing phone


However, he says this is minor

compared to the satisfaction that

comes from the job.

“You never quite know what

you’re going to come across,”

Ken says. “It’s being able to

think that you’re contributing

to the safety of the community,

which I think is really important.

“It’s that ongoing sense of

service and making a difference.”

The 25-year-old ran the gauntlet,

as he has throughout the season, his

third scoring shot was a lofted six

down the ground before he bisected

two of the boundary riders for four.

Then it was over – a skied swipe

was taken by Oscar Wilson as

Lancaster Park’s players sighed with


Stanley scored 13 from seven balls

– including a streaky french cut –

to list his season aggregate to 1014

runs, comfortably a career best.

Quizzed on the cornerstones of

this season’s run glut, the apprentice

builder offered a couple of explanations

“I’d say it comes down to playing

with freedom, I suppose fearlessness


Likewise, his occupation.

“I think that might have been a

key to my concentration as well. I

reckon I’ve also developed a shovel

shot, through the constant shovelling

as an apprentice,” he said.

That new weapon has been a

significant contributor to one of

Stanley’s eye-catching stats as the

2021-22 season has one day – presumably

one last knock – remaining

on Saturday.

Leading into the final day against

Lancaster Park, the left hander had

slugged 67 sixes; Wilson was the

closest challenger with 32.

“A lot of that’s down to the slog

sweep shovel shot I’ve got going on,”

said Stanley, who also boasted the

highest strike rate per hundred balls

this season, 146.77 before the final

round of the two-day competition

got under way.

He needs 31 runs on Saturday to

eclipse Wilson’s aggregate of 1044

last season and regardless of whether

he posts the highest tally since

statistics combined the one and

two-day formats (and then T20) in

1981-82, the campaign has been an

individual triumph.

‘I’ve also developed a shovel

shot, through the constant

shovelling as an apprentice’

– Dan Stanley

Stanley comfortably posted a

career high, exceeding last season’s

769 at 32.04, the fourth time he has

amassed more than 500 runs since


Scott Duggan (Lancaster Park) is

the second highest run scorer with

750 while Stanley’s average (48.28)

is not inflated by not outs, he has

only one from 22 innings.

Centuries haven’t provided an

outlier either, Stanley has made

two 100s with a best of 138, a blistering

75-ball assault including 16

boundaries and seven sixes against

East Christchurch Shirley in the

rain-shortened two-day game at

Heathcote Domain in November.

“Being aggressive has always

been part of my game, but it’s been

a good season,” said Stanley, who

switched from Old Boys Collegians

last season because he was living

with family in Heathcote.

South African-born Stanley,

who moved to New Zealand as a

five-year-old, now hopes weight of

runs translates to winter training in

the provincial A team set-up for the

former Canterbury under-17 and

under-19 representative.

“I’d like to be in that set-up,

hopefully one-day I’ll get an opportunity,

it’s something I’ve strived

for,” said Stanley, who played in the

same under-19 NZ team as future

Black Caps Glenn Phillips, Rachin

Ravindra and Finn Allen at the

World Cup in 2016.

Heathcote coach Mark Lane believed

promotion was warranted.

“If he’s given the opportunity at

the level above he has the potential to

step up and do well. He’s putting runs

together more consistently and he’s

proven he has the ability to be a big hitter

and score quickly,” said Lane, who

coached Stanley in the Christchurch

Boys’ High School first XI.

“It’s now up to the Canterbury

selectors to say: ‘Do we give this guy

a go and see whether he can make

the jump to the next level?’.”

“You don’t come across batsmen

like that often. He’s just got such


Heathcote club captain David

Stack agreed after copping punishment

during training at Heathcote


“I’ve bowled to him a lot in the

nets this season and it does have

the feel of being a five-year-old and

bowling to your dad,” he said.

“He hits the ball really hard.”

Coastal Pathway full of complexities



from the





updates readers on the



the final section of Te Ara Ihutai

Christchurch Coastal is now

under construction.

It’s taken more than a decade

and the passion of scores of

people to get to this point. In the

coming months I’ll use this column

to keep you up to date with

the pathway, the projects that

we’re working on and answer

any questions that come up.

First some background. Right

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, the Christchurch

Coastal Pathway Group was

founded on the vision to create a

4m-wide shared pathway to connect

people, land, and the sea.

A memorandum of understanding

between the CCPG

and CCC was signed and the

group formed a governance

team with the city council and

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board who meet


Our CCPG members are

publicly elected volunteers

passionate about creating an

internationally high standard

coastal pathway extending from

Ferrymead Bridge to Scarborough


Shortly after I was elected chair

of the CCPG, city councillor Sara

Templeton informed me that the

project was selected to receive

funding from Ōtākaro to complete

the project as part of the Government

shovel-ready funding.

Since then, the CCPG has

worked diligently with the

city council to finalise detailed

construction plans. We’ve jointly

held several community outreach

events to review detailed

plans with the community. To

ensure that we preserve existing

community treasures like the

yacht club beach, the historical

wall, and our estuary we’ve

worked closely with various

community groups.

“Jewels” are our term for further

enhancements to the basic

path – in the past we’ve fundraised

and installed plantings,

seatings, bike stands – but we’re

working on even more for the

future, there will be more about

that in a future column.

Late last year Fulton Hogan

was awarded the tender by our

partners at city council. They’ve

already completed some exploratory

excavation to guide future

efforts and are about to start on

upgrading the sewer and water

services west of Shag Rock to

make room for the cantilevered

pathway in that section. They’ll

be completing some of this work

at night-time to reduce traffic

impact and minimise disruption

to the public. They need to do

this work now because penguins

that had been nesting near the

worksite have now left their

nests – this project if is full of

Fire Brigade chief John


IT’S LESS than a minute’s

drive in a straight line for John

Genefaas to get to the Little River

Volunteer Fire Brigade.

It’s less than a minute to get

to most places in the small rural

town, but that’s just how Genefaas

likes it.

With a population of just

under 300, it’s a tight-knit community.

“It’s just a different atmosphere

Genefaas said.

how it is.

“I call a spade a spade,” he said.

Growing up, his family lived

beside the Bottle Lake plantation,


“There was lots of land we

could play on. We weren’t really

allowed there so we used to get

chased out of there,” Genefaas


Genefaas said he was never

years he did enjoy a few drinks

with his mates.

visit their friends in Australia

where Genefaas ended up staying

for six years.

He took up many roles there,

one being a milkman, another

working on the oil rigs.

Genefaas was married and

later divorced while in Australia.

He had two children Jeremy and

Raymond from his first marriage

that came home with him to

New Zealand.

Genefaas met his current wife,

Christine, whom he has been

married to for 35 years and had

two more boys with, Allan and

Izaak. Christine also already had

a daughter Maxine.

All of their children are now in

their mid-30s to early-40s and some

have had children of their own.

When Izaak was 18 he joined

the fire brigade with his father.

He now lives in Canada with his

wife and two children.

Genefaas and Christine lived

in Southshore which Genefaas

said felt quite rural. It was from

there they decided it might be

nice to move out to the country.

“You hear the siren. I’d hear it

go at night and think I’m glad I

don’t have to get up but then it

turned at that I joined and then I

did have to get up,” he said.

The Little River brigade is

currently low on numbers with

only 14 people and Genefaas encourages

those interested to join

them, especially those who can

be available during the day.

“We take all sorts of people.

We’d love to get some more

women in the brigade. We have

one woman there now and she is

probably the most capable in the

brigade,” Genefaas said.

Listing no. BE193902

Open Homes: Wed 10:30 am - 11 am

Sat and Sun 11 am - 11:45 am

No Prior Sale

Observers may be surprised to find this quintessential

Lyttelton cottage, tucked behind a

picket fence, is barely six years young.

Retaining the charm and character of an

earlier era, including high ceilings, periodstyle

windows and a verandah complete with

fretwork, you also gain the considerable

comfort of current construction methodology.

Contemporary hues and timber-toned

flooring contribute a fresh aesthetic, and the

efficient floorplan is complemented by fresh

paintwork, new drapes, and just-laid carpet.

Open plan living borders a practical dine-in

kitchen, with warmth infusing the home

courtesy of double glazing and a cosy heat


Both bedrooms are doubles, conveniently

containing built-in wardrobes, and the

streamlined bathroom incorporates laundry


It's an easy transition out the back door and

down the ramp to a low-maintenance backyard,

where the freehold parcel also includes a

sizable storage shed and clothesline.

From the quaint front porch, you'll catch sight

of the bustling harbour and in less than two

blocks you're in the midst of London Street's

eateries and services, not to mention the famed

weekend Farmer's Market.

No need for a car when everything is so

walkable, from public transport links to the

network of Port Hills hiking and biking trails,

and in-zone Lyttelton Primary School is just

down the street.

The vibrant community of Lyttelton attracts a

dedicated following, and if this entry level

abode tempts you to join them, we recommend

you inspect without delay. Contact me for more

French flair to the fore in Citroen C4

I’VE BEEN hearing horror

stories from new car buyers,

those who have been waiting for

almost a year for cars they have


Nearly all of the world’s car

makers have been affected by

component supply shortages

due to Covid-19 creating

manufacturing issues;

subsequently, lengthy wait lists

have developed.

To top it off there’s a

distribution issue globally and

none more so than in New

Zealand where it’s been reported

that at any given time thousands

of cars are waiting to be

transported island to island.

It’s the high volume distributors

that have been affected most,

companies that have smaller

turnovers seem to be soldiering

on with just enough product to

keep the accountants happy.

At a local level the Armstrong

Motor Group is ticking over

nicely with its new car range –

Subaru, Peugeot and Citroen.

I’ve been very fortunate to have

sampled five models from this

dealership in the last few months

with their new demonstrator

models being made available to

me, and I’m most grateful for


One to come my way from the

Armstrong showroom is Citroen’s

new C4, a cheeky liftback that

almost borders the sport utility

vehicle market.

As mentioned, Citroen isn’t a

big player in New Zealand, but

if you study the product line-up

you’ll find practical, affordable

vehicles that are thoroughly

appealing through their design

flair. I guess you’d expect nothing

less from this French car maker

which has had a reputation for

bold styling cues, designs that

are a considerable part of their


The C4 arrives here in just one

specification and it gets a 1.2-litre

turbocharged three-cylinder

engine which has been used

widely across Citroen’s range and

in some Peugeot models.

I can safely say the threecylinder

layout is it is one of my

favourite engine types and in the

C4 it is quiet, smooth, and doesn’t

overly let the occupants know of

its design through the harmonics

often associated with its three-pot


The twin-camshaft petrol

engine is listed with a 114kW

power rating along with

240Nm of torque, these are

healthy outputs, and if you

take into account where they

are developed – 5500rpm and

USER-FRIENDLY: The interior features a clever tablet holder.

CITROEN C4: Bold styling cues and aggressive frontal treatment.

1750rpm respectively – then

there becomes an immediate

sense of acceleration. Add in

the light weight of the C4 at just

1267kg and it feels feisty and

lively. Citroen claim a standstill

to 100km/h time of 8.9sec, which

is all the acceleration you need in

today’s motoring environment.

Drive is channelled through

a conventional eight-speed

automatic transmission, if you

take into account the seemingly

endless supply of ratios, there is

reasonable harmony and gearing

which enhances that eager engine

feel, along with healthy fuel


The latter is listed by Citroen

at 6.1-litres usage per 100km on

a combined cycle average. The

evaluation car’s dash display

was constantly sitting around

7.4l/100km, which was a good

figure given the car was brand

new and I guess somewhat tight.

If you also take into

consideration the C4’s weight,

then it has benefits in all areas,

the engine isn’t working hard

to maintain momentum, hence

the light fuel load, there is also

a feel through the chassis and

suspension that promotes a

sporty sensation.

The suspension deserves a

worthy mention, it gets what

Citroen describe as a progressive

hydraulic cushion system.

Put simply, what appear

• Price – Citroen C4, $41,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4360mm; width,

1800mm; height, 1525mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,


1199cc, 114kW,

240Nm, eight-speed


• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

to be conventional shock

absorbers actually incorporate

two hydraulic stops, one for

compression and one for

decompression, they dissipate

energy from road bumps, helping

to create a smooth ride.

In effect, the ride is well

cushioned. There is a road I

often eke out when on a highway

journey, it’s near Darfield and

tree roots have been growing

under the road for a distance

of about 1km making the road

rippled which makes for a good

suspension test, the C4 has a

controlled, comfortable ride.

The C4’s styling isn’t radical as

it could be, but it is a departure

from the norm. The interior is

modernistic and minimalist in

its detailing, however, it all works


I particularly like the

panoramic roof which has an

electric internal blind and it very

much adds to the character of

the car, it is a $2990 option, but it

represents the ideology of C4.

In terms of specification, the C4

is also well appointed. You get all

of the kit you’d expect on a $42k

car with many of the functions

operated by voice recognition


Satellite navigation is fitted

along with head-up display,

steering wheel-mounted paddle

gear shifters and driver-selectable

drive modes – eco, normal and

sport. The C4 incorporates all

things practical in a modern,

stylish package. There is one

feature that really appealed to my

wife as a passenger and that is the

Smart Pad Support device, a clever

retractable system that connects

to the dashboard, enabling the

front passenger to securely

attach their tablet for use on any

journey, when not in use it slides

seamlessly back into the facia.

For other passengers the C4 is

a compact five-seater, but there

is also good cargo room for

the inevitable items we always

travel with. On that subject, the

rear load space can extend from

380-litres to 1250-litres.

Built with traditional Citroen

values, the C4 is a funky purchase

for anyone who dares to be

different. The last model sold

well in New Zealand, and I’m

expecting the newcomer to be

just as popular.

Working hard for

Banks Peninsula

It is a real privilege to have been elected as your local MP.

As your MP, I think it is important to keep in touch with my

constituents to let you know about the work that I am doing, both

here in Banks Peninsula or representing you in Wellington.

Since being elected, it’s been a privilege to work with the

community on some important issues.

The Lyttelton community has secured a big win

with a law change to provide fairer funding for seafarer’s

welfare centres. So shipping companies help cover the costs of

meeting our obligations to seafarers in our ports. In the Opawaho-

Heathcote catchment, the Cashmere Stream Working Group has

secured $1.6 million for community-lead ecological restoration

through the Jobs for Nature scheme.

Te Ara Ihutai, the Christchurch Coastal Pathway is getting closer

and closer to completion, with Government’s Shovel Ready Funding

scheme delivering $15.8 million to this project which will link up

the bays for walking and cycling.

And there’s other issues we’re still working hard to

get an outcome:

I’m standing alongside the Bromley community as they

fight to move the Council’s odorous compost plant

that’s been affecting their lives for far too long.

Traffic safety is a big concern for residents: in Woolston,

residents living along Radley Street have told me that they think

their street has too many trucks and too many people driving too

fast. In Halswell, I’ve raised traffic safety along the Halswell Road

corridor with Waka Kotahi. As the Halswell area grows, we need

investment in safer streets.

On the Peninsula, from Cass Bay to Goughs Bay, digital

connectivity is a massive issue. Whether that’s raising the issue

of cell phone towers through the Rural Connectivity group or

advocating for broadband rollouts, I’m committed to seeing a

connected Peninsula.

If there’s a way

you think we could

work together to

solve a problem in

your community,

please get in touch.

Strong communities

and local heroes

The best part of this job has been connecting

with residents and community groups —

Whether that’s local schools, churches, community sheds, local firefighters, community

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

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

Here’s a few of

the community stars

I’ve had the privilege

to meet this term.

Steve Bush from Trees for Canterbury.

Trees for Canterbury is a nursery with purpose:

growing native trees for ecological restoration and

providing pathways to employment. It was a pleasure

to visit this Woolston enterprise

and meet manager Steve Bush.

Sikh community.

Our wonderful neighbours down Ferry Road

at Gurudwara Singh Sabha Christchurch

transformed their place of worship into a pop-up

vaccine clinic – they have proudly had 3000 people

so far come in for their vaccinations and delicious

food! Thank you so much.

Pop-up Vaccine Clinic at Ferry Road New World.

The Ferry Road New World stepped up to help

out with the vaccine drive, and more recently the

booster drive, by hosting this pop-up vaccine clinic.

It was a pleasure to bring the Prime Minister down

and show her some Woolston hospitality!

Local Community Patrollers.

With Police Minister Hon Poto Williams, I met our

community patrollers. It’s a voluntary role that

see these stars head out to keep an eye on their

neighbourhoods and keep our communities safe.

Alan and Ollie from Ferrymead Bays Football Club.

Sport is a big part of our lives here in Banks

Peninsula, whether that’s surfing off Taylor’s Mistake,

cricket at the Heathcote Domain or Chatham Cup

football on Garrick Park – it’s about balance in our

lives and it’s about social connection. Ferrymead

Bays are a great community club.

28 Bay Harbour News Wednesday March 23 2022 Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

My office is here to help,

don’t hesitate to get in touch

The office, based at 642 Ferry Road in the Woolston Village, provides information,

advice, support and assistance to constituents living in

the Banks Peninsula electorate.

The help we can provide ranges from answering simple

queries or hearing about your policy concerns, through

to taking up cases on your behalf with central and local

government or other organisations.

Where to find me

At present, we are seeing constituents with vaccine passes

in person by appointment, and can make arrangements to

assist others by phone, online, or email.

I take my job as your

elected representative

seriously and want to

ensure my team and

I are accessible to all

constituents. Please do

not hesitate to use our

services if you require
