Trying to live sustainably:<br />

‘Every little bit counts’<br />

FOR DAVE Bryce, one of the<br />

secrets to living a healthier and<br />

longer life is getting down in the<br />

dirt.<br />

At 74, Bryce has been working<br />

to live as sustainably as possible<br />

for the past 20 years.<br />

“My wife and I are trying to<br />

live as sustainably as we can by<br />

providing for most of our needs<br />

through nature.<br />

“We grow trees for firewood,<br />

eat from our garden, and heat<br />

our house from the sun.<br />

“We’ve found that working<br />

with plants and trees is important.<br />

There’s bacteria on them<br />

and in the soil that interact with<br />

our own microbiomes and stimulate<br />

our endorphins.<br />

“We feel good and it keeps us<br />

healthier and more resilient,” he<br />

said.<br />

As a volunteer, Bryce uses his<br />

spare time to co-ordinate the<br />

restoration of Drayton Reserve,<br />

a former pastoral farm that sits<br />

below his home on Mt Pleasant.<br />

“Scientists have said that 50<br />

per cent of the earth’s surface<br />

needs to be returned back to<br />

its original ecosystems if the<br />

human species is to survive, so<br />

we are totally dependent on that<br />

happening and we’re working on<br />

COMMITTED: Dave Bryce uses his spare time to co-ordinate restorating Drayton Reserve.<br />

doing it here,” he said.<br />

“There are many benefits to<br />

working with nature and every<br />

time you go into the reserve,<br />

there is something new to learn<br />

about the interactions between<br />

the plants, bird-life, insects and<br />

fish.”<br />

Bryce has organised volunteers<br />

to work in Drayton Reserve since<br />

2016 and estimates they have<br />

planted about 8000 trees.<br />

“We’ve been doing this for<br />

six years and are in our seventh<br />

planting season. We try to put<br />

in a thousand trees a year, but it<br />

usually ends up being more than<br />

that.<br />

“We have 200 people on our<br />

email list, and 10 to 20 regulars.<br />

We’re always looking for more<br />

people who are keen to get involved,<br />

whether it be individuals,<br />

businesses or school groups.<br />

“All of our trees are ecosourced,<br />

provided by the [city]<br />

council, and we get them right<br />

here in Christchurch from Trees<br />

for Canterbury.”<br />

Bryce keeps the group growing<br />

with regular working bees and<br />

newsletters.<br />

He has also been involved with<br />

the creation of the Eco Kiwi<br />

Pledges, a joint effort with the<br />

Redcliffs Residents’ Association,<br />

which lists ways people can reduce<br />

their carbon emissions and<br />

improve biodiversity.<br />

While planting trees and<br />

looking after the reserve takes<br />

up a lot of Bryce’s spare time, he<br />

is also a keen gardener, growing<br />

more than 100 edible species in<br />

his garden.<br />

From grapes and guava to<br />

broccoli and bananas, Bryce has<br />

attempted to grow it all.<br />

“We love having our own<br />

garden and it means we can<br />

reuse our waste, we don’t have to<br />

go out and buy fruits and vegies,<br />

and we’re integrating with our<br />

own ecosystem.<br />

“Anyone can start getting a<br />

garden growing. You can simply<br />

start by growing micro greens on<br />

your kitchen bench.<br />

“I recommend starting off<br />

small. Things like lettuces are<br />

great as they grow all year round.<br />

Or peas and broad beans are also<br />

quite easy.<br />

“Every little bit counts and<br />

anything can be helpful. We<br />

need to learn to live within<br />

nature if we want to survive on<br />

this planet, everyone can do it,”<br />

said Bryce.<br />

Volunteers needed for Daffodil Day<br />

THE CANCER Society is seeking<br />

more volunteers to help with its local<br />

Daffodil Day street collection next<br />

Friday, <strong>August</strong> 26 and Saturday,<br />

Cancer Society Canterbury-West<br />

Coast division fundraising manager<br />

Heather Locke said the organisation<br />

is excited to be able to get out and<br />

about this year, after the nationwide<br />

lockdown forced the cancellation of<br />

last year’s street appeal.<br />

“Every day 71 New Zealanders are<br />

diagnosed with cancer, so everybody<br />

knows somebody who has been<br />

impacted,” Locke said.<br />

“Volunteering for a couple of hours<br />

on Daffodil Day is a really great way<br />

to support the thousands of New<br />

Zealanders living with cancer.”<br />

Fruits of labour shared<br />

THE LIONS clubs of Kaitaia and<br />

Manganui have been picking,<br />

collecting and boxing up six<br />

tonnes of citrus fruit and sending<br />

it down to the South Island, with<br />

Mainfreight transporting it for<br />

free.<br />

Last week 19 banana boxes of<br />

fruit arrived. The Ferrymead and<br />

New Brighton Lions clubs distributed<br />

it to the Salvation Army,<br />

Christchurch City Mission,<br />

Community Fridge and Pantry,<br />

and other needy places. This<br />

would be one of the most enjoyable<br />

jobs that Lions have done.<br />

Others include the spring pea<br />

straw sales, which will be on<br />

Saturday, <strong>August</strong> 20 at Clifton<br />

Terrace, Sumner, and the Redcliffs<br />

end of McCormicks <strong>Bay</strong> Rd,<br />

and on Saturday, September 10 at<br />

Princess Margaret Hospital car<br />

park and on the corner of Ramahana<br />

and Centaurus Rds. Both<br />

sales will be from 9am-1pm.<br />

As well as sausage sizzle<br />

fundraisers at Bunnings and<br />

Mitre 10, a new project has been<br />

running a canteen/sausage sizzle<br />

at Ferrymead Park. This has been<br />

popular especially on cold days.<br />

It is great news that the<br />

Christchurch Schools’ Music<br />

Festival is going to be held again<br />

this year at the town hall. This<br />

is one of the activities that all<br />

Lions clubs in Christchurch have<br />

supported for many years.<br />

So please carry on supporting<br />

our fundraising projects – and<br />

consider becoming a volunteer,<br />

because we need more people to<br />

help us carry on giving to worthy<br />

causes.<br />

Personal twist to research on<br />

• By Tina Grumball<br />

FOR OLIVIA Shimasaki, her<br />

research into those affected by<br />

nuclear weapons and testing<br />

uncovered a personal twist.<br />

Her grandmother was nineyears-old<br />

in 1945 when atomic<br />

bombs were dropped on Japan,<br />

first on Hiroshima on <strong>August</strong><br />

6 and then Nagasaki three days<br />

later.<br />

Living in a village about<br />

three hours north of Tokyo,<br />

Shimasaki said her grandmother<br />

remembered the bombings and<br />

the “shock to the nation” they<br />

caused.<br />

Between 60,000 and 80,000<br />

people were killed immediately<br />

in Hiroshima, and more than<br />

70,000 were killed in the subsequent<br />

bombing of Nagasaki.<br />

“I think it would have been<br />

something people all over<br />

Japan felt a connection to as it<br />

happened to their citizens and<br />

country,” Shimasaki said.<br />

“I’ve been studying specifically<br />

oral histories associated with<br />

experiences of nuclear weapons<br />

and testing and exposure to<br />

radiation for the past seven years<br />

now.”<br />

To further her research, she<br />

has been picked for an internship<br />

opportunity with the International<br />

Atomic Energy Agency.<br />

There were seven women globally<br />

picked for the programme<br />

that focuses on getting women<br />

into the nuclear field.<br />

Shimasaki is the first from<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Shimasaki lives and works<br />

in Christchurch as a part-time<br />

youth programmes co-ordinator<br />

for The Peace Foundation, and<br />

a youth and young adults officer<br />

for the Society of St Vincent De<br />

Paul.<br />

Her interest in the area began<br />

during a university lecture.<br />

“This individual came in and<br />

showed a video on the effects of<br />

nuclear weapons in the Pacific,”<br />

she recalled.<br />

“It was really heavily oral<br />

history-based, looking at individuals<br />

who are impacted.”<br />

That lecture made her question<br />

why she had never heard about it<br />

and what she could do for those<br />

affected.<br />

“So I went off and I did a lot<br />

more research.”<br />

Shimasaki was granted a<br />

scholarship by the Peace and<br />

Disarmament Education fund<br />

to travel to Japan and interview<br />

Hibakusha, who are “people affected<br />

by nuclear bombs, atomic<br />

bombs and radiation.”<br />

“I got to talk with these people,<br />

around my grandparents’ age,<br />

and hear their oral histories and<br />

share those with the world,” she<br />

said.<br />

What drove her was trying to<br />

get their stories out there and<br />

show others the lasting effects,<br />

and what others can do to support<br />

those already exposed.<br />

She also interviewed two<br />

nuclear test veterans in New<br />

Zealand, including Roy Sefton<br />

and the wife of an atomic bomb<br />

tester.<br />

“All of the oral histories in<br />

my thesis I feel are so impactful<br />

which is why I’m going to do<br />

this internship and going to<br />

learn more, and hopefully<br />

speak out for peace because they<br />

all have something to contribute<br />

to the nuclear discussion,” she<br />

said.<br />

The internship itself is between<br />

three months to a year at the<br />

IAEA, and Shimasaki has been<br />

placed in the Department of<br />

Safeguards.<br />

The department focused on<br />

education and making sure<br />

nuclear materials are being used<br />

in the right way.<br />

the effects of nuclear weapons<br />

A few years ago, she was one of<br />

100 women globally to receive the<br />

IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie<br />

fellowship and through that she<br />

was contacted and offered the internship<br />

to continue the research<br />

she had done.<br />

“I just hope that we can continue<br />

to speak out for peace and<br />

we take the time to listen to these<br />

people’s stories so that we can<br />

learn from the past,” Shimasaki<br />

said.<br />

“I guess the threat of nuclear<br />

warfare isn’t new, but the ways<br />

that we can address it have<br />

changed.”<br />

While every story stuck with<br />

her, Shimasaki said one that<br />

stuck out was about a green shirt;<br />

“it seems like the most simple<br />

thing if you saw it.”<br />

“I’d seen [the green shirt] in the<br />

War Memorial Museum when I’d<br />

visited . . . I thought it was such<br />

a sad, touching story that it was<br />

the only item left that this family<br />

had in remembrance of their<br />

daughter; they had nothing else.<br />

“The following day, I spoke<br />

with one of my interviewees and<br />

it actually turned out that that<br />

was one of his sisters’ shirt and<br />

they only found it decades later in<br />

their mother’s drawer, wrapped<br />

up really preciously, and they had<br />

no idea that she’d kept that from<br />

their sister, and that she’d held<br />

onto that trauma and that loss, up<br />

into her old age.”<br />

“There’s really so many powerful,<br />

sad stories that I think just<br />

need to be heard,” she said.<br />

Shimasaki noted that all of the<br />

people she spoke to “have made<br />

a conscious decision to speak out<br />

for peace.”<br />

She recalled a man she spoke<br />

to that had only attended the<br />

Hiroshima Memorial Museum<br />

decades after he was exposed<br />

to radiation in the atomic bombing.<br />

Now retired, it was after<br />

reading that hundreds of people<br />

in the same year at school as<br />

him had died that he felt an<br />

“obligation, in a way, to speak<br />

out for those people that had<br />

died because they couldn’t do it<br />

themselves.”<br />

“[What’s] really inspirational<br />

is these people, after all these<br />

years, are still choosing to [speak<br />

for peace] and wanting to spread<br />

peace so that they know no<br />

one ever has to go through that<br />

again,” she said.<br />

Shimasaki leaves for the internship,<br />

in Austria, in September<br />

and is excited to go.<br />

“I think it’s going to be a very<br />

exciting challenge and a big<br />

change for me, but it’s something<br />

I’m really looking forward to<br />

going and doing.”<br />

New home for Bush Farm Education<br />

• By Annabel Black<br />

FINDING AND securing a new<br />

residence for much-loved Bush<br />

Farm Education has been an<br />

involved process for managing<br />

director and lead kaiako Katie<br />

Earle and her team.<br />

“We were<br />

looking for a<br />

new location<br />

that could offer<br />

a connection to<br />

the land, sea and<br />

nature, similar<br />

to what we had<br />

Katie Earle at Orton Bradley<br />

Park,” Earle said.<br />

Reaching out to the local<br />

community led Earle to meet<br />

with Denis Aldridge from Living<br />

Springs, and the synergy between<br />

the two organisations was<br />

quickly realised.<br />

To celebrate the new partnership,<br />

Bush Farm will be holding<br />

an open day at Living Springs on<br />

September 1 at 3pm.<br />

For 50 years, Living Springs<br />

has attracted many thousands<br />

of young people and community<br />

groups to a unique and<br />

breath-taking setting. The<br />

campers engage with nature,<br />

unplug from city life and have<br />

the opportunity to take part in<br />

challenging adventures.<br />

Living Springs business<br />

development manager Heba<br />

Mashhour said: “Much of our<br />

OUTDOORS: For 10-year-old Baxter Scott, Bush Farm<br />

Education is his favourite place to be – other than home.<br />

ethos centres around well-being,<br />

the outdoors, the environment<br />

and education. As such, we are<br />

delighted to welcome Bush Farm<br />

education to Living Springs.”<br />

For Bush Farm, the new location<br />

offers a stream, native bush,<br />

a working sheep farm, animals,<br />

access to the sea, and a similar<br />

vision.<br />

For working parents, it’s even<br />

closer to Ōtautahi Christchurch,<br />

now a 15-minute commute over<br />

the hill from Colombo St, and a<br />

similar drive from Lyttelton and<br />

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

Bush Farm Education started<br />

in 2018 to cater to the people<br />

of Waitaha Canterbury. It grew<br />

out of the need to bring a deeper<br />

connection to the farm, sea and<br />

whenua.<br />

Research indicates children<br />

who experience outdoor play<br />

have higher pro-environmental<br />

attitudes, are more resilient and<br />

are resourceful, while Indigenous<br />

knowledge shows a deep<br />

connection to the whenua fosters<br />

holistic well-being and supports<br />

a sense of identity and belonging.<br />

“By combining both lenses,<br />

within a relationship-based<br />

environment, our whānau can<br />

flourish in their knowledge, and<br />

further their understanding of<br />

the world,” Earle said.<br />

“Bush Farm operates outdoors,<br />

year-round, in all weathers.<br />

We’re an organisation that connects<br />

nature with resourcefulness.<br />

We follow the cycles of the<br />

seasons. We ask the ‘why’ and<br />

the ‘how’. We craft, we observe,<br />

we gather, we kōrero.”<br />

The feedback is unanimous:<br />

the children and their families<br />

love it.<br />

Baxter Scott is 10-years-old<br />

and has been a student at Bush<br />

Farm since the start of the year.<br />

He takes leave from his local<br />

primary school to attend each<br />

Thursday during the school<br />

term, as well as joining holiday<br />

programmes events.<br />

“Being somewhere new means<br />

we can do different things<br />

around Living Springs,” said<br />

Baxter.<br />

“I say it will be very nice – I<br />

am so happy that Living Springs<br />

is allowing us to keep going. I<br />

love Bush Farm – learning about<br />

the outdoors has been great.<br />

Other than my home(s) it’s my<br />

favourite place to be, it feels like I<br />

have a lot of friends there.”<br />

Bush Farm uses a variety of<br />

tools on its programmes such<br />

as sensory awareness, self-care,<br />

quiet mind, autonomy, co-operation,<br />

empathy, interdependence,<br />

pattern detection, singing and<br />

storytelling. The school ensures<br />

learners are connected to themselves,<br />

their community and<br />

their environment in a way that<br />

empowers them to act as kaitiaki<br />

and future problem-solvers.<br />

Hilda’s rose planted at Mona Vale<br />

• By Tina Grumball<br />

A “VERY SPECIAL” rose has<br />

been planted in Mona Vale<br />

Garden Park in honour of its<br />

namesake who was murdered<br />

under suspicious circumstances.<br />

English peace campaigner and<br />

world renowned rose-grower<br />

Hilda Murrell was found dead in<br />

the Shropshire countryside, West<br />

Midlands, in 1984.<br />

While a person was arrested<br />

and sent to prison for her murder<br />

in 2005, there is still uncertainty<br />

surrounding her “bizarre,<br />

strange” death, including the role<br />

of British intelligence.<br />

A prominent figure at the rose<br />

planting ceremony, her nephew<br />

Robert Green published a book<br />

about her death called A Thorn<br />

in Their Side in 2013.<br />

In his book, Green explored<br />

new evidence that should have<br />

acquitted the charged man and<br />

exposes police errors from their<br />

investigation.<br />

Green served for 20 years in<br />

the British Royal Navy, from<br />

1962-82, where he worked with<br />

nuclear depth-bombs and as an<br />

intelligence officer during the<br />

Falklands War.<br />

Now a leading figure in talking<br />

about disarmament, including<br />

nuclear, he lives in Christchurch<br />

and is married to Dr Kate Dewes<br />

– another prominent figure in<br />

ENDURING: Rob Green with a Hilda Murrell rose bush, which was planted at Mona Vale.<br />

A world-renowned rose grower and peace campaigner, Murrell (inset) was murdered in<br />

1984 in what was described as “bizarre, strange” circumstances.<br />

this area.<br />

The rose planted last Tuesday<br />

was named after Murrell just<br />

three weeks before she was<br />

murdered, as a tribute to her and<br />

the international respect she had<br />

gained as a rose-grower by David<br />

Austin, a famous rose grower<br />

himself.<br />

“This was an old-fashioned<br />

rose which was developed by a<br />

famous rose grower in England<br />

called David Austin back in the<br />

1980s and 90s,” Green told The<br />

Star.<br />

“He knew my aunt . . . admired<br />

her, and this rose, as she described<br />

it in her own diary . . . it’s<br />

an old-fashioned warm pink after<br />

the manner of Constance Spry.”<br />

Constance Spry was a famous<br />

pioneer and collector of old<br />

English roses.<br />

These older roses, like the Hilda<br />

Murrell rose, are different to<br />

those more modern, as they only<br />

flower once a year.<br />

“They have a very strong scent<br />

and they’re all very special. They<br />

have a long history going back<br />

hundreds of years,” Green said.<br />

He said the stock of Hilda’s<br />

rose almost died out in the<br />

United Kingdom, but some New<br />

Zealand rose growers worked<br />

“diligently” to propagate the<br />

plant.<br />

There are now 11 plants<br />

ready to be distributed to the<br />

rest of the country, starting in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

“I am confident that Hilda<br />

would have been delighted to<br />

know [it].”<br />

Murrell was also a campaigner<br />

against nuclear waste from the<br />

nuclear power plants that generate<br />

electricity.<br />

“The problem of nuclear power<br />

plants is that if they go wrong<br />

then they have hundreds of times<br />

the radioactivity in them than<br />

nuclear weapons . . . it can spread<br />

on the wind, and you can’t get<br />

rid of it for years and years, and<br />

it’s basically poisonous,” Green<br />

said.<br />

Green noted the Ukranian<br />

War is something Murrell would<br />

have kept a close eye on as the<br />

biggest nuclear power plant is<br />

there, and, if it got out of control,<br />

“it would radiate the whole of<br />

Europe”.<br />

“She was also concerned about<br />

nuclear weapons, but her primary<br />

concern was about waste.”<br />

Green and Dewes were at<br />

the 77th anniversary gathering<br />

in Hagley Park for the atomic<br />

bombings of Nagasaki and<br />

Hiroshima earlier this month.<br />

Further opportunities to present grants<br />

AS THE Sumner-Ferrymead<br />

Foundation becomes better<br />

known, the opportunities to<br />

make grants increases. We<br />

have noticed that over the last<br />

year or so the number of grant<br />

applications has increased.<br />

THis increased interest for<br />

grant applications is a good news<br />

story – we are delighted to be<br />

able to help more people in our<br />

community even though at time<br />

in the future we may need to<br />

raise more money to do it.<br />

Part of our increase in granting<br />

has been our scholarships<br />

which are certainly popular: we<br />

are awarding scholarships for<br />

more disciplines. For example<br />

we now have a scholarship for<br />

people doing finance and a new<br />

apprenticeship assistance scholarship.<br />

However, we would like to do<br />

more. First, this means more<br />

people. With that in mind, we<br />

are delighted to welcome Sumner<br />

residents Max Mathias and Mel<br />

Jones as new trustees. Both Jim<br />

Keegan and Julie Cunningham<br />

have recently stepped down –<br />

Julie has been a trustee since the<br />

foundation’s inception nearly 30<br />

years ago, and Jim has served for<br />

eight years. We take this opportunity<br />

to thank them both for<br />

their service.<br />

As we find more trustees we<br />

must also look to our financial<br />

resources – we currently have a<br />

little over $300,000 in capital. Of<br />

this, $200,000 has been invested<br />

for the long-term in an investment<br />

portfolio with FANZ and<br />

we do not expect to have to draw<br />

on this anytime soon. The balance<br />

is in cash and so available to<br />

meet grant applications.<br />

Our capital has come from<br />

within our community courtesy<br />

of some very generous donors.<br />

Dora Grut started the foundation<br />

with great generosity, and<br />

she has been joined by others<br />

over the years.<br />

The foundation has helped a<br />

lot of people and organisations<br />

over the years. This year, trustees<br />

were overwhelmed with the<br />

quality of the young people who<br />

applied for tertiary education<br />

and delighted that we could help<br />

them advance their education<br />

through scholarships. We were<br />

sorry that we could not help<br />

more.<br />

We have also granted to people<br />

and organisations for varied<br />

purposes including going to<br />

International sporting events<br />

such as the World Junior Surfing<br />

Championships. At our last<br />

meeting we made grants for<br />

travel to the World Junior Orienteering<br />

Champs and a Canoe<br />

Racing New Zealand Camp. At<br />

the same meeting, we granted to<br />

the Redcliffs Library.<br />

While these grants will continue<br />

to happen, we are also considering<br />

a major project, possibly<br />

the replanting of the valley above<br />

Recent<br />

recipients of<br />

grants from<br />

the Sumner-<br />

Ferrymead<br />

Foundation.<br />

Barnett Park as set out on these<br />

pages previously.<br />

There are any number of<br />

individuals and organisations<br />

in the Sumner-Ferrymead area<br />

that are worthy and for whom<br />

some help could make all the<br />

difference.<br />

As the granting side of the<br />

foundation increases, we will<br />

need to bolster our finances. A<br />

bigger foundation with more<br />

resources will be able to better<br />

help its community.<br />

Lyttelton Timeball Station<br />

FROM ITS prominent position high<br />

on the ridge above Officers Point,<br />

the Lyttelton Timeball Station has<br />

been a significant landmark on the<br />

skyline since its completion in 1876.<br />

With Lyttelton being a busy port,<br />

this location was chosen in order<br />

that the dropping of the timeball<br />

and associated flag signalling could<br />

be seen from the township, inner<br />

harbour and the Adderley Head<br />

signal station at the entrance to<br />

Whakaraupō Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Albeit a well loved feature of<br />

Lyttelton’s landscape, the Timeball<br />

Station’s purpose and function<br />

is not always well understood if<br />

current anecdotal accounts are anything<br />

to go by; we aim to put that<br />

to rights here! The dropping of the<br />

Timeball at precisely 1 pm NZMT<br />

(NZ Mean Time) enabled ship’s<br />

GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) – a<br />

crucial means of recalibrating their<br />

instruments after long sea voyages,<br />

during which chronometers could<br />

gain or lose precious seconds.<br />

In any long sea journey, accurate<br />

determination of a ship’s position<br />

(latitude and longitude) is critical<br />

– a few degrees out can mean the<br />

difference between life and death<br />

due to the risks of collision with<br />

landmasses or reefs, or other<br />

maritime losses resulting from not<br />

knowing exactly where you are. In<br />

1800s and 1900s European sailing<br />

practice, latitude was relatively<br />

easy to calculate with the use of an<br />

astrolabe (cross staff) or sextant,<br />

which measured the angle between<br />

the sun and the horizon. Longitude<br />

posed a greater challenge; the much<br />

used ‘dead reckoning’ perhaps in<br />

part named due to the consequences<br />

of getting it wrong – ”you’re dead if<br />

you don’t reckon right”.<br />

Lieutenant James Cook had taken<br />

an early chronometer for a test<br />

drive on his second voyage to New<br />

Zealand in <strong>17</strong>72, resulting in the<br />

confirmation of the success of the<br />

technique. With a chronometer on<br />

board, a navigator could accurately<br />

calculate the difference between the<br />

time at a previously known fixed<br />

point and the time at his current<br />

position, thus being able to calculate<br />

longitude accurately. The development<br />

of a reliable chronometer by<br />

English watchmaker George Harrison<br />

in <strong>17</strong>59, after 30 years effort,<br />

was the linchpin for the widespread<br />

uptake of this method of navigation.<br />

One of Harrison’s clocks is housed<br />

in the Royal Observatory at Greenwich<br />

for those lucky enough to visit.<br />

Consequently, a network of timeballs<br />

of varied designs sprung up in<br />

major ports around the globe in the<br />

Victorian era. Lyttelton’s Timeball<br />

was one of six throughout Aotearoa<br />

– Auckland, Wanganui, Wellington,<br />

Timaru and Dunedin also had their<br />

maritime timepieces, with Nelson<br />

having a noon time gun and a contemporary<br />

timeball being constructed<br />

on the Whangarei marina office<br />

in the 1990s.<br />

With Siemens Brothers apparatus,<br />

and its wooden frame covered in a<br />

zinc cladding, the Lyttelton timeball<br />

was manually wound to the top of<br />

the mast at three minutes to 1pm<br />

each day.<br />

Originally, the drop was triggered<br />

telegraphically via the Colonial<br />

Observatory in Wellington then the<br />

Telegraph Office in Lyttelton, to the<br />

Edward Dent and Co clock in the<br />

clock room of the tower, although<br />

the ball could also be dropped<br />

manually. The moment the ball left<br />

the crossbar signalled precisely 1pm;<br />

that time was chosen as mariners<br />

were otherwise engaged at noon -<br />

seamen changing watch and staff at<br />

observatories busy taking noontime<br />

sun readings.<br />

This great description by George<br />

Eiby, Superintendent of the Seismological<br />

Observatory in 1978, does<br />

not however, evoke the wonderful<br />

sound effects of the old ball in<br />

action – a rhythmic clacking on its<br />

ascent and a loud woosh as the ball<br />

fell.<br />

“The timeball is not a complicated<br />

mechanism. Before it can drop, it<br />

must be hoisted to the top of the<br />

mast and lowered gingerly on to a<br />

catch. This is done with the help<br />

of a rack and pinion driven by<br />

a handwheel. The process bears<br />

comparison with the setting of an<br />

old-fashioned mousetrap. When the<br />

catch is pulled away, the ball slides<br />

rapidly down the mast and comes to<br />

rest on rubber buffers at the bottom.<br />

The speed of the descent is controlled<br />

by a piston attached to the<br />

ball, which drives air out of a long<br />

cylinder rather like a giant bicycle<br />

pump. A tap at the bottom controls<br />

the escaping air and ensures that the<br />

ball falls quickly enough to provide<br />

a clear signal, but not so fast that it<br />

does itself an injury when it hits the<br />

bottom.”<br />

With the rapid development of<br />

radio communications during and<br />

post WW1, official use of the timeball<br />

ceased in December 1934, after<br />

58 years of service.<br />

In next week’s column we will<br />

Linwood edge Hornby in epic battle<br />

• By Will Evans<br />

LINWOOD KEAS have<br />

regained the symbol of<br />

Canterbury Rugby League<br />

supremacy, Penitito Ilalio<br />

etching his name into grand<br />

final folklore through a<br />

phenomenal 50m solo matchwinner<br />

in the dying seconds.<br />

The Keas edged defending<br />

champion Hornby 34-30 at Nga<br />

Puna Wai on Sunday, icing a<br />

successful grand final schedule<br />

for Linwood, who also claimed<br />

the women’s and men’s premier<br />

reserve grade silverware.<br />

Linwood’s elite men’s team<br />

reeled in a 12-point half-time<br />

deficit to lead 24-18, although<br />

the Panthers appeared on course<br />

for back-to-back titles after<br />

scoring two unanswered tries to<br />

regain the advantage 30-24.<br />

Earlier wing Vaione Siaki<br />

opened the Pat Smith Trophy<br />

grand final scoring for Hornby<br />

with a 15th-minute try.<br />

Linwood responded when<br />

George Faaiva crashed over from<br />

close range, but converted tries<br />

to Charlie Charlie and Christian<br />

Fetu put Hornby in control 18-6<br />

at halftime.<br />

However, the Keas came out<br />

firing after the break, scoring<br />

three tries in first 11 minutes of<br />

the second stanza to build a sixpoint<br />

advantage.<br />

But Eti Collins levelled the<br />

MATCH-WINNER: Linwood wing Penitito Ilalio entered<br />

Canterbury Rugby League men’s premiership grand final<br />

folklore with his championship-winning try in the dying<br />

seconds against Hornby.<br />

scores via a try from a kick,<br />

before Panthers fullback Muipu<br />

Nati scorched in for a brilliant<br />

individual score.<br />

The Keas set up a grandstand<br />

finish via an unconverted try<br />

with 14 minutes to go.<br />

The Panthers defended desperately<br />

through the closing stages<br />

and had one hand on the Pat<br />

Smith Trophy, until wing Ilalio<br />

cut through on halfway and<br />

produced a dazzling sidestep to<br />

evade Nati and streak away for<br />

a spectacular try to secure the<br />

club’s sixth men’s premiership in<br />

seven years.<br />

For the Panthers, it was an<br />

absolute heart-breaker after a<br />

gallant performance – and especially<br />

poignant in Jed Lawrie’s<br />

final game as head coach.<br />

Linwood second rower Uriah<br />

Tuli was awarded the Mel Cooke<br />

Trophy as player of the match.<br />

The Keas clinched their first<br />

CHAMPIONS: The Linwood Keas celebrate their sixth<br />

grand final victory in seven years by avenging last season’s<br />

loss to Hornby in the decider.<br />

women’s premiership since 2018<br />

with a 22-20 over two-time<br />

defending champion Sydenham<br />

Swans in another grand final<br />

thriller. Trailing by 10 points<br />

with 14 minutes remaining, the<br />

Keas scored the last three tries of<br />

the decider to snatch the title.<br />

Swans forward Janaya Mata<br />

crashed over for the first<br />

four-pointer in the 10th minute,<br />

but Keas front rower Angela<br />

Petero and winger Tayjuan<br />

Faataape-Tuiloma scored in consecutive<br />

sets midway through<br />

the first half to give Linwood a<br />

10-4 lead.<br />

Abby Thornley responded for<br />

Sydenham with a try just before<br />

halftime to cut the deficit to two<br />

points.<br />

Another barnstorming effort<br />

from Mata 10 minutes after<br />

the break put the Swans back<br />

in front, before a slick passing<br />

movement resulted in a try for<br />

Harmony Simaile and a 10-point<br />

advantage as a premiership<br />

three-peat loomed.<br />

Healthy trees<br />

add value to<br />

your property<br />

SPORT<br />

Trees are a lifetime investment. The<br />

trees that surround your home fortify<br />

your refuge from the world. Your<br />

home is your haven, and we want to<br />

ensure that it remains that way. Caring<br />

for your trees starts with correct<br />

pruning, removal is the last resort.<br />

Trees are pruned or trimmed for<br />

several tree care reasons. Professional,<br />

experienced Arborists can improve<br />

tree health, tree structure, and add<br />

light, space, and beauty to your<br />

beloved trees with correct pruning.<br />

Pruning a little and often is the way<br />

to gently guide your tree to a happy,<br />

prosperous life. There are several<br />

different pruning techniques to get the<br />

most out of your trees.<br />

Canopy lifting involves the removal<br />

of lower canopy branches to provide<br />

clearance for buildings, vehicles,<br />

pedestrians, to enhance views and<br />

increase light. This is a great alternative<br />

to removal to retain your tree assets<br />

and reap the benefits of mature trees<br />

on your property.<br />

Thinning increases light penetration<br />

and air movement through the crown.<br />

It also opens the foliage of a tree,<br />

reduces weight on heavy limbs, and<br />

helps retain the tree’s natural shape.<br />

This decreases the chances of disease<br />

and can prolong the life of the tree.<br />

New hedges should be trimmed<br />

from an early stage to establish a<br />

shape and prevent leggy, unsightly<br />

growth. The amount you prune back<br />

will depend on the type of hedge.<br />

Once the hedge is established, regular<br />

maintenance will ensure it remains<br />

healthy and has a great appearance.<br />

Vista management is managing<br />

Before<br />

After<br />

your vegetation to optimising and<br />

frame your view with properly<br />

pruned vegetation. Healthy trees can<br />

offer many benefits to your property<br />

including adding to the market value<br />

of a property as well as privacy.<br />

However, as they become larger,<br />

they can obscure a desirable view.<br />

Some of the most beautiful views in<br />

New Zealand can be found on Banks<br />

Peninsula. Attempting to maintain<br />

these views is one of the main reasons<br />

people cut or top trees, which can<br />

cause bigger problems than they solve.<br />

Our passionate team has the<br />

experience to work as quickly and as<br />

safely as possible. We can perform all<br />

aspects of arboricultural care for your<br />

trees.<br />

council head of vertical capital<br />

delivery Brent Smith said.<br />

“The contractor was working<br />

on dismantling the concrete<br />

core of the memorial when a<br />

big chunk of concrete broke off,<br />

revealing the glass bottle.<br />

“If the concrete had not broken<br />

in that exact spot, we would<br />

never have found it.”<br />

The glass bottle was handedover<br />

to a team of conservators<br />

from Canterbury Museum who<br />

delicately drilled through the<br />

bottle’s glass stopper to reach the<br />

note inside.<br />

However, the neck of the bottle<br />

was too narrow and the note too<br />

fragile because some moisture<br />

had seeped in.<br />

They had to wait several weeks<br />

for the rolled-up piece of paper<br />

to dry out before they could have<br />

another go at extracting it.<br />

When the note was finally unfurled<br />

it was clear some of it had<br />

disintegrated, but the handwritten<br />

names of five stonemasons<br />

who worked on the memorial<br />

were still visible.<br />

The date the note was written -<br />

February 1937 – was also visible.<br />

“The note is a bit worse for<br />

wear but it is an amazing link to<br />

the past that could easily have<br />

laid undiscovered,” Smith said.<br />

“I think what this note shows<br />

is that the original stonemasons<br />

were very proud of being part<br />

of building this memorial to the<br />

men and women who lost their<br />

lives in World War 1 and they<br />

wanted their role in the project to<br />

be remembered.<br />

“I am delighted that 85 years<br />

on we have recovered the note<br />

they hid and can publicly acknowledge<br />

them for their skilled<br />

workmanship and the part they<br />

played in creating this cherished<br />

memorial,” Smith said.<br />

DISCOVERY:<br />

The bottle<br />

containing<br />

the small<br />

hand-written<br />

note was<br />

found inside<br />

the Citizens’<br />

War<br />

Memorial.<br />

PHOTOS:<br />

NEWSLINE<br />

For the team of stonemasons<br />

working on the restoration and<br />

relocation of the memorial, the<br />

discovery was special.<br />

“This discovery is a reminder<br />

of the rich history and tradition<br />

we’re helping to preserve,” said<br />

Goldfield Stone stonemason<br />

Regan Shanks.<br />

The city council aims to reveal<br />

the restored memorial in its new<br />

location in time for Armistice<br />

Day commemorations.<br />

great Aussie motoring memories, from the original Monaro’s<br />

launch in 1968 to living in the seventies through the Torana years.<br />

from 1978 to 2020 and including the last Aussie-built V8s.<br />

Ford Falcon Commemorative Edition<br />

The Great Years, The Great Cars by Luke West<br />

Ford Falcon Commemorative Edition celebrates the much-loved car’s<br />

six-decade rule of Aussie roads and racetracks.<br />

With the chequered flag flying on the Blue Oval favourite, this book<br />

examines the first Falcons to take flight in the early 1960s through<br />

to the final FG-X. Special emphasis is placed on the glorious decade<br />

1969-78 and the magnificent high-performance machines from the<br />

Falcon XW GT-HO to the XA, XB and the Cobra. These are cars that<br />

still command instant respect and ooze all the excitement, emotion,<br />

colour, freedom and raw power of their time.<br />

Ford Falcon captures the stories from the men who designed,<br />

developed, built and raced these bred-for-Bathurst beasts. It features<br />

stunning photography of Falcon’s triumphs, milestones and majesty.<br />

After some 56 years and 3.8 million cars, what better way to say<br />

goodbye to Aussie motoring royalty.<br />

Fresh face for Skoda Kodiaq<br />

WHEN I’M booking evaluation<br />

cars in my diary I generally try to<br />

avoid an overlap, one car at a time<br />

is preferable.<br />

However, that is not always<br />

possible and after a schedule<br />

change I didn’t want to turn<br />

down the chance to drive a high<br />

performance sports car, so for<br />

three days I had two cars in my<br />

driveway.<br />

While one of them was spectacular<br />

in terms of speed and<br />

handling, I couldn’t help but be<br />

smitten with the other – a sport<br />

utility vehicle, a Skoda Kodaiq<br />

to be exact, and it was the go-to<br />

vehicle when I had errands to run<br />

or for the daily commute, driving<br />

my wife to and from her place of<br />

work.<br />

The Kodiaq equips itself well<br />

in terms of occupant comfort<br />

and engineering prowess that is a<br />

perfect blend of performance and<br />

economy.<br />

I guess that’s why it was voted<br />

the New Zealand Motoring<br />

Writer’s Guild Car of the Year in<br />

20<strong>17</strong>, a well-deserved title if my<br />

memory serves me well.<br />

The Kodiaq has just had a<br />

facelift, and all that has done<br />

is make a good car even better.<br />

Most of the changes are cosmetic,<br />

while the driveline and mechanicals<br />

are largely as they were when<br />

the model first landed here five<br />

years ago.<br />

There are five models in the<br />

Kodiaq range, it is extensive in<br />

terms of whether you want the<br />

high-performing RS at $79,990<br />

or want to ease yourself into the<br />

line-up at $48,990 for the 1.4-litre<br />

Ambition. The evaluation car<br />

was the 2-litre petrol-powered<br />

TSi Style that lists at $63,990,<br />

bearing in mind that the Government<br />

will want an extra $1093 to<br />

off-set carbon emissions. For my<br />

money I think I’d pay an extra<br />

$11k and go diesel, but that’s not<br />

saying the petrol-powered Style<br />

doesn’t impress.<br />

All of the engines that power<br />

the Kodaiq today are state-ofthe-art,<br />

as you would expect<br />

from a Volkswagen-based source<br />

– Czech Republic’s Skoda is in<br />

partnership with VW and the<br />

Kodiaq is based on the Tiguan<br />

platform.<br />

While its seven seats offer a<br />

point of difference to other SUVs<br />

in the mid-size category, take into<br />

account that there is also fourwheel-drive<br />

in the Kodiaq, and<br />

drive modes that encourage the<br />

odd excursion into the high-country<br />

back roads and trails.<br />

Skoda rates the 1984cc engine<br />

at 132kW and 320Nm. In<br />

true European engine-building<br />

fashion, the turbocharged unit<br />

develops a lot of its power low in<br />

the rev band. Peak power arrives<br />

all of the way from 3900pm to<br />

6000rpm, while maximum torque<br />

comes in at 1400rpm and meets<br />

the point of peak power.<br />

That being the case, there is<br />

TEMPTING: The Skoda Kodiaq is available in five different<br />

specification levels.<br />

SKODA KODIAQ STYLE: Fresh looks but with well proven driveline.<br />

a minuscule amount of power<br />

drop-off, the entire acceleration<br />

and transmission process is seamless.<br />

The latter is a seven-speed<br />

direct shift automatic, and without<br />

the power-robbing characteristics<br />

of a torque converter the<br />

way the power process is developed<br />

is simply extraordinary.<br />

The Kodiaq Style is quick with<br />

an 8.4sec standstill to 100km/h<br />

acceleration time, and it will<br />

scoot through a highway overtake<br />

in 5.1sec – 80-120km/h. The<br />

feel from beneath the throttle<br />

is constantly entertaining and<br />

encouraging.<br />

It is also built in the way where<br />

fuel usage hasn’t been sacrificed.<br />

Skoda also rates it with a 9.3-litre<br />

per 100km combined cycle average.<br />

It will sip fuel at 6.1l/100km<br />

instantaneously at 100km/h with<br />

the engine turning over quite<br />

relaxed at just 1800rpm.<br />

Most of my driving with the<br />

test car was at city speeds, and<br />

even though that doesn’t present<br />

the best fuel economy result, the<br />

dash panel readout was listing<br />

a combined average of over<br />

10l/100km which I thought was<br />

satisfactory.<br />

The suspension is a fully<br />

independent mix of struts and<br />

multiple links with spring and<br />

damper rates well balanced<br />

for comfort and the inevitable<br />

time the Kodiaq will be asked<br />

to traverse undulating ground.<br />

• Price – Skoda Kodiaq Style<br />

TSi, $63,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4699mm; width,<br />

2087mm; height, 1685mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1984cc, 132kW, 320Nm,<br />

seven-speed direct shift<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.4sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 9.3/100km<br />

While most four-wheel-drives<br />

of this ilk can’t be considered<br />

genuine off-roaders, the Kodiaq<br />

is a capable all-road vehicle, and<br />

the short shingle road journey I<br />

presented it with served to prove<br />

how tidy it is in a loose surface<br />

environment.<br />

Riding on fabulous Pirelli<br />

Scorpion tyres (235/50 x 19in)<br />

there is optimum feedback at the<br />

steering wheel and direct response<br />

to steering input. Because<br />

the Kodiaq isn’t a big vehicle at<br />

just 4.6m, it isn’t carrying a lot of<br />

weight; for a seven-seater it has<br />

strong handling and performance<br />

dynamics.<br />

In terms of on-board equipment<br />

and value fitment, the<br />

Kodiaq at $64k doesn’t miss out<br />

on much, the seats are leather<br />

trimmed and have three-stage<br />

heaters for the cold Canterbury<br />

mornings; the steering wheel,<br />

too, can be heated at will. I<br />

particularly like the umbrella<br />

tube in the front door, complete<br />

with umbrella, that has become a<br />

Skoda hallmark. It’s small features<br />

such as those that show a lot of<br />

thought has gone into manufacture.<br />

The Kodiaq’s seven-seat system<br />

is constructed the way we expect<br />

of the modern SUV. The rear row<br />

of seats fold up from the floor,<br />

and even though they would<br />

only be suitable for short trips<br />

for adults, for youngsters and<br />

the slight of build the rear area is<br />

entirely practical.<br />

Up front the driver has at his<br />

or her command a wealth of<br />

functions and high specification<br />

fitment. The list is way too comprehensive<br />

to detail but to say the<br />

level of specification is far greater<br />

than I would expect to normally<br />

find for this price.<br />

The Kodiaq sits beside a host of<br />

other models in the Skoda lineup.<br />

There are a lot of fresh and<br />

exciting models arriving at the<br />

moment and the brand will lure<br />

buyers with competitive prices<br />

and quality built product.<br />

I’m hoping I can find myself<br />

behind the wheel of some of the<br />

new three-cylinder models that<br />

are landing at the dealerships<br />

now. I figure those fuel misers<br />

will be very popular in these<br />

times where petrol prices are on<br />

the top of everyone’s radar.<br />

New safer speed limits<br />

from 2 September <strong>2022</strong><br />

Situations Vacant<br />

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and Christchurch City Council advise the<br />

new permanent speed limits announced earlier this year will apply from Friday<br />

2 September <strong>2022</strong>, on State Highways 73/75 Christchurch to Akaroa and State<br />

Highway 74, Lyttelton, and some Banks Peninsula local roads.<br />

To help remind drivers of the new speeds there will be temporary electronic signs on the roadside<br />

and local police will be in the area.<br />

The changes include more consistent speeds through Halswell, 60km/h over the Hilltop and<br />

50km/h through Little River to just past Wairewa Marae.<br />

High-risk 100km/h sections of SH75 will reduce to 80km/h.<br />

When speeds are safe for the road, simple mistakes are less likely to end in tragedy.<br />
