Bus routes<br />

plan to<br />

solve<br />

cruise ship<br />

problem<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

BUS ROUTES through Lyttelton<br />

are changing to try to solve the<br />

congestion problem caused by<br />

cruise ship passengers.<br />

It’s one of a number of<br />

immediate changes being made<br />

after the Te Pataka o Rakaihautu<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board faced angry protests from<br />

locals at its meeting two weeks<br />

ago, complaining about cruise<br />

ship passengers<br />

hogging the<br />

buses, creating<br />

congestion and<br />

preventing them<br />

from from getting<br />

to and from the<br />

Reuben<br />

Davidson<br />

city on time.<br />

Board chair<br />

Reuben Davidson<br />

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

measures are now being taken<br />

to alter the cruise ship transport<br />

operation.<br />

The most significant change<br />

is buses returning from<br />

Christchurch to the terminal<br />

will go directly to Norwich<br />

Quay without stopping, and not<br />

through the town, he said.<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE AVERAGE value of a<br />

property in Taylors Mistake has<br />

risen sharply after the area was<br />

lumped in with the surrounding<br />

suburbs.<br />

The latest rateable valuation,<br />

undertaken by Quotable Value<br />

in August, shows the average<br />

value of a residential dwelling<br />

in Taylors Mistake increased by<br />

70 per cent to $936,000 over the<br />

past three years.<br />

However, the city council said<br />

Taylors Mistake itself contains<br />

only 39 residential properties<br />

from 151 Taylors Mistake Rd to<br />

the beach.<br />

As there were no recent sales<br />

of residential dwellings in that<br />

area leading up to the latest<br />

valuations, evidence from<br />

Scarborough, Sumner and the<br />

other hill suburbs was used to<br />

help determine the values, QV<br />

Canterbury manager Brendon<br />

McCurley said.<br />

The capital value of a<br />

property, house and land, which<br />

determines the RV and the<br />

market value, is based on sales<br />

leading up to the date of the<br />

valuation, McCurley said.<br />

Ray White Ferrymead<br />

principal Craig Prier said many<br />

properties off Taylors Mistake<br />

Rd are defined as being part of<br />

Scarborough and were sold for<br />

significantly more than their old<br />

RVs in 2021 and last year.<br />

Said Davidson: “This will<br />

reduce the volume of buses on<br />

the township loop route, and<br />

also reduce the demands on the<br />

temporary bus stop space outside<br />

the information centre. One cruise<br />

ship company operator, Carnival,<br />

has also agreed to hold off sending<br />

out passenger to the Lyttelton<br />

shuttles until after 9am.”<br />

The news has been welcomed<br />

by Winchester St resident, Steve<br />

Hodgson. He is terminally ill and<br />

said the high number of noisy buses<br />

trundling past his place all day<br />

has caused him stress and worry.<br />

“At one stage there was a bus<br />

every minute,” he said.<br />

Davidson said the changes are<br />

positive.<br />

“Our port commuters need<br />

to know they can reliably get to<br />

school and work on the bus, and<br />

Com<br />

these measures should help give<br />

them that certainty.”<br />

Additional buses and an express<br />

service will run on the No 28<br />

route, said Davidson.<br />

Hodgson hoped it would<br />

make a difference but viewed the<br />

changes with some scepticism. “I<br />

haven’t noticed any difference yet.<br />

The only solution is for the port<br />

company to accept the fact they<br />

are the ones making money out<br />

of the cruise ships so they should<br />

provide an alternative route for<br />

cruise ship buses.”<br />

on a steam tug?<br />

THE STEAM tug Lyttelton<br />

is calling out for deckhands<br />

and stokers to help the historic<br />

vessel continue operating on the<br />

harbour.<br />

The Tug Lyttelton Preservation<br />

Society made the appeal for<br />

volunteer crew members – and<br />

no experience is necessary to fill<br />

the roles.<br />

Society member Michael<br />

Fowke said help is needed on the<br />

wharf and deck. Volunteers are<br />

also needed to stoke the boiler<br />

and keep the old tug in shipshape<br />

condition.<br />

He said the work is not too<br />

physical.<br />

“We are looking for people<br />

from anywhere in the city to<br />

help, working a roster.”<br />

Fowke lives in Rangiora and<br />

comes in every week to help look<br />

after the vessel.<br />

The Lyttelton tug was built in<br />

Scotland in 1906 and was based<br />

at Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> until 1970.<br />

Since then, the vessel has been<br />

taking passengers on harbour<br />

cruises to the Lyttelton Heads<br />

each Sunday afternoon over<br />

summer.<br />

The tug is also available for<br />

HELP WANTED: The Tug Lyttelton Preservation Society is<br />

functions and private charters.<br />

Fowke said the volunteers<br />

would need to work a couple of<br />

hours on Sunday afternoon and,<br />

if possible, on Thursdays when<br />

the vessel if cleaned up and readied<br />

for the weekend.<br />

Each Sunday, the engineers<br />

arrive about 1pm to heat the engines<br />

up. The deck crew then prepares<br />

the passenger areas. “We<br />

are so grateful to our incredible<br />

and passionate volunteers to keep<br />

the tug maintained,” said Fowke.<br />

A Forager’s Life - A spellbinding debut memoir<br />

about plants, motherhood and belonging<br />

by Helen Lehndorf<br />

A memoir about belonging and motherhood, told through the author’s lifelong<br />

passion for wild food<br />

When Helen Lehndorf moves to the city after a childhood living off the land<br />

in rural Taranaki, she can’t help but feel different from her peers and<br />

professors. She finds solace in long walks foraging weeds and<br />

plants along the river, but something inside her still longs for<br />

home.<br />

Chasing a feeling of ancestral belonging, she travels to<br />

England with her new husband. There they learn about nature<br />

as the commons, shared between all who encounter it - a<br />

source of delight, food, medicine.<br />

An unexpected pregnancy in Aotearoa changes everything, and<br />

motherhood takes over Helen’s identity. When her son is diagnosed<br />

with autism, foraging becomes a space for selfhood in a chaotic world.<br />

Weaving memoir with foraging recipes, principles and practices, A Forager’s Life<br />

is an intimate story and a promise that, with the right frame of mind, much can<br />

be made of the world around us.<br />

some of the most precious<br />

Home to banded dotterel,<br />

ground-nesting birds such as<br />

oystercatchers and endangered<br />

native spiders like katipō, as<br />

well as skinks and two species<br />

of flightless moth, the area is<br />

also populated with pests such<br />

as hedgehogs, mustelids,<br />

possums and feral cats.<br />

Bos has been working for Pest<br />

Free Banks Peninsula for 20<br />

months on various projects. She<br />

is now based at Kaitorete as a<br />

dog handler for its conservation<br />

dog programme.<br />

‘‘I’m excited to be a part of such<br />

an enormous, amazing goal,’’<br />

said Bos who lives in Little River.<br />

Since December, she has<br />

worked with Mobab, a threeand-a-half-year-old<br />

border terrier<br />

trained to track hedgehogs.<br />

Recently the pair were<br />

joined by Terry, a 20-month-old<br />

In the other focus area –<br />

the extended wild side of<br />

Banks Peninsula – PFBP<br />

is working to get rid of all<br />

possums and drop mustelid<br />

and feral cat numbers to 20<br />

per cent of what they were<br />

when the branch began.<br />

‘‘We are the only Predator<br />

Free 2050 project that is<br />

targeting that many species at<br />

once,’’ Sjoberg said.<br />

After spending 20 years<br />

as a surgical and cardiology<br />

nurse at Christchurch<br />

Hospital, Bos said she<br />

decided to pursue her<br />

passion for conservation fulltime.<br />

She has found what she calls<br />

‘‘the ultimate job.’’<br />

Sjoberg said PFBP is<br />

‘‘blessed’’ to have Bos.<br />

‘‘Her strength<br />

is communication and being<br />

able to work under pressure,’’<br />

which he says comes from her<br />

work as a nurse.<br />

He also praises her ‘‘detailed<br />

and concise approach.’’<br />

It helps Bos to get in touch<br />

with the dogs and understand<br />

their behaviours.<br />

Mabob and Terry live with<br />

Bos on her property, which<br />

she likes to call their ‘‘palace.’’<br />

She said they benefit from<br />

living with their handler as it<br />

helps the dogs develop a much<br />

They are also expensive,<br />

highly-trained animals, so it is<br />

important to keep them safe.<br />

Sjoberg said ‘‘knowing the<br />

dog intimately so that the wag<br />

of a tail or scratch of an ear’’<br />

indicates they are close to a<br />

pest is important.<br />

‘‘These are the little signs<br />

that Karin needs to pick up<br />

on and she’s so good at that.<br />

‘‘I was just blown away<br />

with how much those dogs<br />

love Karin.’’<br />

While no two days are<br />

the same, Bos will check<br />

the ‘‘remote reporting<br />

network’’ daily to see<br />

which of PFBPs numerous<br />

live capture traps have been<br />

set off, she said. After her and<br />

the dogs investigate, she then<br />

lets them sniff out other<br />

predators. ‘‘They are detection<br />

The life and times of smiling<br />

centenarian Doreen Felton<br />

• By Martin Hawes<br />

DOREEN FELTON likes things<br />

to go smoothly – but in reality<br />

nothing ever does.<br />

Doreen, who turned 100 on<br />

Febtruary 23, has lived through<br />

the Great Depression, World<br />

War 2, the earthquakes, and a<br />

pandemic.<br />

Alongside these she has<br />

fought many other obstacles<br />

and difficulties within her<br />

family and with her own health<br />

issues. Things do not always go<br />

smoothly but Doreen is nothing<br />

if not resilient!<br />

Born in Timaru and one<br />

of seven, life was not easy for<br />

her family. The Depression<br />

cast a dark shadow over the<br />

whole country and Doreen<br />

still wonders how her parents<br />

managed to feed a family of<br />

nine. Her father was out of work<br />

and relied on Government work<br />

schemes for a living. He was<br />

away working a lot but came<br />

home most weekends with his<br />

pay – five shillings a week (50<br />

cents in today’s money!)<br />

Most tragically at about this<br />

time, Doreen’s brother, George,<br />

died. This was the first of<br />

Doreen’s siblings to die – there<br />

were seven but today, Doreen<br />

finds herself the only one who<br />

has survived.<br />

The Depression faded and<br />

Timaru had much to offer a<br />

child growing up. There were<br />

always others to play with –<br />

family and friends – and sports<br />

included tennis, cricket, and<br />

swimming. Church provided a<br />

centre for a strong community<br />

with plenty of socialising. As<br />

it is today, Caroline <strong>Bay</strong> was a<br />

popular venue for swimming,<br />

sunbathing, and socialising.<br />

Doreen remembers clearly<br />

her first day at Timaru Main<br />

Primary School and ended that<br />

top of her class. Later she went<br />

on to Timaru Girls High where<br />

she studied accountancy. After<br />

BIG DAY: Doreen Felton cuts the cake at her 100th birthday party.<br />

finishing high school, Doreen<br />

worked in various jobs during<br />

the war, but it wasn’t long before<br />

a new person entered her life –<br />

Grahame Felton.<br />

The thing that marks this<br />

centenarian’s life most clearly<br />

is her 72-year marriage to<br />

Grahame and all of their<br />

precious family. That is an<br />

extraordinarily long marriage<br />

by any standards and Doreen<br />

attributes its longevity to the<br />

fact that they worked together<br />

through most of their lives and<br />

shared common interests.<br />

They met in Timaru and were<br />

married in 1943. Grahame had<br />

purchased a dairy and together<br />

they built up this business over<br />

the first eight years of their<br />

marriage. In these days, dairies<br />

were often thriving businesses<br />

and Doreen and Grahame built a<br />

full-scaled grocery business even<br />

selling fresh baking. After<br />

eight years of hard work the<br />

dairy was sold yielding a profit<br />

big enough to buy a house.<br />

Doreen and Grahame moved<br />

to Christchurch. Grahame found<br />

a series of jobs in sales and<br />

management while Doreen took<br />

care of their three children.<br />

Eventually, Grahame became<br />

a tutor with the New Zealand<br />

Institute of Management,<br />

and it was not too long before<br />

Doreen joined him. With the<br />

children grown up, Doreen and<br />

Grahame travelled New Zealand<br />

presenting a programme which<br />

PHOTO: DAVID ALEXANDER PHOTOGRAPHER<br />

provided better management<br />

skills and self-improvement.<br />

Later, Grahame developed his<br />

own programmes for the NZIM.<br />

They continued to work with<br />

businesses and sports groups,<br />

presenting and mentoring<br />

individuals. Their programmes<br />

and mentoring were for children<br />

and adults, including some very<br />

high-profile sportspeople. This<br />

led to Grahame being awarded a<br />

QSM in 2007.<br />

When the earthquakes struck,<br />

Doreen and Grahame were<br />

living in Heathcote. Living at the<br />

centre of the quakes, this was a<br />

terrifying time. Unfortunately,<br />

the cancer that Grahame had<br />

previously been treated for<br />

returned. Doreen was recently<br />

out of hospital and Grahame was<br />

cared for at Edith Cavell. For<br />

Doreen, with roads in bad shape<br />

and in a wheelchair, travel each<br />

day to be with Grahame was<br />

tough.<br />

Sadly, Grahame’s cancer<br />

worsened, and in 2<strong>01</strong>5 he<br />

died. Now by herself, Doreen<br />

moved to a Ngaio Marsh<br />

townhouse and later had to<br />

adapt to a whole new lifestyle as<br />

an amputee, with its reliance on<br />

others and loss of independence.<br />

However, having lived 100 years,<br />

little fazes her: at age 100, Doreen<br />

Felton is still full of energy, as<br />

sharp as a tack, and continues to<br />

mentor people. She lives with the<br />

goal of outliving her eldest sister<br />

who lived to 102.<br />

It’s time to come together to plan our future.<br />

The Christchurch, Selwyn and<br />

Waimakariri districts are growing<br />

rapidly, and our population could<br />

double to 1 million people within<br />

the next 60 years, if not earlier.<br />

Where will everyone live? How<br />

will we get to where we want to<br />

go? How will we grow and protect<br />

our environment?<br />

How will we get around?<br />

NEWS<br />

LEARN: The<br />

number<br />

of pupils<br />

attending Our<br />

Lady Star of<br />

the Sea School<br />

in Sumner has<br />

risen to 84.<br />

Double the children, double the fun<br />

Our Lady Star<br />

of the Sea<br />

School’s roll<br />

sat at just over<br />

40 children<br />

at the end of<br />

2020. Now it<br />

is up to 84 Nathan<br />

pupils and Burford<br />

growing,<br />

the largest it has been<br />

in a decade. Principal<br />

Nathan Burford shares<br />

his thoughts on why the<br />

number has climbed<br />

THERE ARE a number of<br />

reasons why we have experienced<br />

the growth we have, but in my<br />

opinion the most important<br />

one has been a strong focus on<br />

fostering a sense of belonging<br />

and relationship building<br />

amongst our community.<br />

We have so many people that<br />

are deeply invested in making<br />

this place special including a<br />

wonderful board of trustees,<br />

outstanding staff and incredible<br />

parent community.<br />

As a Catholic school we do<br />

offer something a bit different<br />

and our focus on faith and the<br />

values that are aligned to being<br />

a catholic school are something<br />

many people are wanting for<br />

their child’s education.<br />

Parents often comment that<br />

we feel like a country school in<br />

the city and our size brings a<br />

sense of calmness to children’s<br />

schooling.<br />

Being a smaller school we are<br />

heavily reliant on our school<br />

community to help out where<br />

they can. Parents are regularly<br />

involved in fundraising, school<br />

maintenance, communications<br />

and even simple things like<br />

dropping in baking for teachers<br />

during interviews. We pride<br />

ourselves on embracing any<br />

new families that join us, so<br />

that the start of their schooling<br />

experience with us is as seamless<br />

as possible. Everyone knows<br />

everyone and their families, and<br />

there are very few parents that<br />

we don’t see coming onto school<br />

grounds regularly, to be a part of<br />

their child’s education.<br />

We have wonderful support<br />

from our neighbouring schools<br />

as part of the ‘Aupaki Cluster’<br />

of schools and this helps us not<br />

to miss out on bigger events just<br />

because we are small.<br />

We join in on cultural festivals,<br />

sports events, staff training and<br />

all other events that are part<br />

of our area. We do have some<br />

changes on the horizon in terms<br />

of our buildings, that I feel will<br />

only enhance our school and the<br />

teaching and learning and who<br />

knows, the way we are growing,<br />

one day we may indeed hit our<br />

maximum roll of 130.<br />

For now we are focused<br />

on ensuring that as we grow<br />

children and their families<br />

continue to enjoy the point of<br />

difference that our Catholic<br />

school offers.<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

Tunnel was a feat of engineering<br />

MONDAY, February 27 marked<br />

the 59th anniversary of the<br />

opening of the Lyttelton Road<br />

Tunnel in 1964, a significant<br />

occasion that signalled huge<br />

changes for the port township<br />

and the wider region.<br />

With increasing private vehicle<br />

ownership and the opening of<br />

the tunnel, Ōhinehou Lyttelton<br />

began the transition from a<br />

relatively secluded port township<br />

connected only by rail to<br />

Christchurch, to a community<br />

more directly in touch with the<br />

metropolis through the hill.<br />

Our online collection holds<br />

many fascinating photographs<br />

of both the construction of this<br />

vital transport link and the<br />

opening events that celebrated it.<br />

A road tunnel between<br />

Lyttelton and Christchurch<br />

had been considered from as<br />

early as 1851. However, one<br />

of many concerns at the time<br />

was that horses would catch<br />

cold in moving from the heat<br />

of the plains into the cold<br />

underground. Alternative<br />

overland routes were constructed<br />

via Evans, Dyers and Gebbies<br />

passes and the construction of<br />

a rail tunnel, completed in 1867,<br />

was a significant engineering feat<br />

by global standards at the time.<br />

By the early twentieth<br />

century, calls for improved<br />

transport links were increasing<br />

as the rail link began to prove<br />

unsatisfactory for burgeoning<br />

port freight movements.<br />

From the 1920s through to the<br />

1950s several different interest<br />

groups proposed solutions; a<br />

port and canal at the estuary of<br />

the Heathcote and Avon rivers<br />

was quite seriously considered.<br />

The push for a road tunnel<br />

to run above the existing rail<br />

tunnel was led by the Tunnel<br />

Road Promotion Committee,<br />

which lobbied for Government<br />

funding.<br />

World War 2 hindered<br />

progress and it was not until<br />

1956 that the Christchurch–<br />

Lyttelton Road Tunnel Bill was<br />

passed through parliament,<br />

sponsored by Sidney Holland,<br />

MP for Fendalton and then<br />

Prime Minister. The passing<br />

of the bill enabled the<br />

establishment of the Road<br />

Tunnel Authority, which was<br />

tasked with raising the £3.4<br />

million budget and constructing<br />

the tunnel.<br />

Despite some local opposition,<br />

especially regarding the<br />

proposed impact on the<br />

Heathcote Valley, Ministry of<br />

Works planning was completed<br />

by 1960 and work began in 1962<br />

under a partnership between<br />

Fletcher Construction Ltd and<br />

American firm Henry J. Kaiser<br />

Construction.<br />

Excavation teams worked<br />

from both sides of the hill in<br />

three shifts, six days a week,<br />

carving a 1970m long tunnel;<br />

the longest road tunnel in New<br />

Zealand (until 2<strong>01</strong>7 when it<br />

was surpassed by the 2400m<br />

Waterview Tunnel in Auckland).<br />

Spoil from the tunnel was<br />

used in the construction of<br />

the 5km motorway leading<br />

to the Heathcote portal from<br />

Ferry Rd, also necessitating the<br />

construction of several large<br />

bridges.<br />

Preparation for an increase<br />

in traffic in Lyttelton was<br />

undertaken on Norwich Quay;<br />

widening the road, attending<br />

to curbing and drainage<br />

and constructing a concrete<br />

overbridge above the railway<br />

yards.<br />

Lining the tunnel walls with<br />

1,2500,000 glazed white ceramic<br />

tiles made in the NZ Insulators<br />

factory in Temuka, with another<br />

250,000 yellow roof tiles being<br />

imported from England, took<br />

longer than the groundworks to<br />

create the tunnel itself.<br />

On February 23, 1964 the<br />

tunnel, which had come in<br />

under budget at £2.7 million,<br />

was opened for pedestrians to<br />

experience walking its gleaming<br />

length.<br />

The official opening<br />

ceremonies on February 27<br />

began with the arrival of the<br />

Governor General Brigadier Sir<br />

Bernard Ferguson announced<br />

by a fanfare of trumpets. The<br />

elaborate welcome was followed<br />

by addresses by Prime Minister<br />

Keith Holyoake and other<br />

dignitaries.<br />

Afternoon tea was then held at<br />

the Upham Memorial Garden,<br />

with the Lyttelton Marine Band<br />

playing the march Lyttelton,<br />

composed especially for the<br />

occasion.<br />

Ten thousand vehicles<br />

christened the tunnel free of toll<br />

charges on that day, with the<br />

queue to enter the tunnel from<br />

the city side stretching all the<br />

way to Moorhouse Ave. Tunnel<br />

staff wore smart uniforms<br />

complete with peaked hats.<br />

The Heathcote portal was<br />

graced with an award-winning<br />

modernist administration<br />

building designed by Peter<br />

Beaven, envisaged by him to be<br />

a fifth sister ship to the first four<br />

Canterbury Association vessels<br />
