FIX-IT PHIL<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

RESIDENTS LIVING close to<br />

land used for storing shipping<br />

containers want the city council<br />

to hurry up and do something<br />

about them.<br />

One has taken to emailing<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Phil Mauger for help –<br />

but she has had no response.<br />

“I do think he has let the<br />

community down,” said Melissa<br />

McCutchan. “We just don’t<br />

seem to be getting anywhere<br />

. . . our concerns are not being<br />

taken seriously.”<br />

The containers are being<br />

stored on industrial land in<br />

Woolston, close to residents<br />

homes including McCutchan’s.<br />

She said her house shakes and<br />

reverberates when containers<br />

are moved. It is not uncommon<br />

for she and her children to wake<br />

up at night when containers<br />

fall. She likened the sound to an<br />

earthquake.<br />

“If it’s not waking me up, it’s<br />

waking up my children,” she<br />

said.<br />

“It’s taking a significant toll<br />

on everything.”<br />

Residents complained<br />

about the site last year and in<br />

November the city council<br />

determined the operator had<br />

been stacking containers higher<br />

than the 11m allowed under<br />

the industrial parks outline<br />

development plan, and was also<br />

using a designated landscaping<br />

and stormwater setback.<br />

The operator applied for<br />

resource consent in November<br />

to be allowed to stack containers<br />

higher than 11m. They also<br />

applied to be able to use the<br />

setback area.<br />

A city council spokesperson<br />

said staff were waiting for<br />

further information from the<br />

applicant. “So it’s difficult to<br />

provide a timeframe for when<br />

the consent will be completed,”<br />

the spokesperson said.<br />

$5.85m station open to public<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

THE PUBLIC will get a<br />

chance to look through<br />

Sumner’s new multi-million<br />

dollar fire station on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Firefighters will be on<br />

hand at their Wakefield Ave<br />

base to answer questions<br />

from 2-4pm.<br />

The station replaced the<br />

previous building which was<br />

damaged in the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake and<br />

demolished. Sumner brigade<br />

chief Daryl<br />

Sayer said<br />

the new<br />

station has<br />

many key<br />

features.<br />

“Before,<br />

Daryl Sayer<br />

all our gear<br />

was stored<br />

beside the trucks, so<br />

exposed to exhaust fumes,<br />

and the appliance bay was<br />

not heated, it was just a cold<br />

room.” Now the brigade<br />

has a separate locker room,<br />

exhaust extraction and a<br />

warmer environment, Sayer<br />

said. “The big benefit has got<br />

to be that it’s brand new.”<br />

The station cost $5.85<br />

million, which included<br />

the purchase of an adjacent<br />

property, $2.9 million<br />

of which came from the<br />

Government’s Covid-19<br />

response and recovery fund.<br />

‘Savage’s British Hotel’ was a rather rough affair until a<br />

New spouting tops bucket list<br />

AFTER YEARS of exposure to<br />

coastal elements, Okains <strong>Bay</strong><br />

Museum needs new spouting<br />

in order to protect its precious<br />

collections.<br />

“I’ve never seen spouting so<br />

bad in a functioning building,”<br />

said museum<br />

general manager<br />

Wendy Riley.<br />

“Gaps I<br />

thought were<br />

half a metre wide<br />

turned out to be<br />

five metres, so<br />

Wendy<br />

Riley<br />

more gap than<br />

gutter.”<br />

Corrosion<br />

has also created gaping holes<br />

in spouting on buildings<br />

containing the museum’s<br />

significant collections.<br />

These include buildings<br />

housing its collection of Taonga<br />

Māori, classified by Te Papa<br />

experts in 2016 as treasures<br />

of outstanding quality and of<br />

national significance.<br />

“During a recent high wind,<br />

we found pieces of rusty<br />

spouting blowing across the<br />

museum grounds like confetti,”<br />

said Riley.<br />

“We have a lot of deferred<br />

maintenance to do and number<br />

one on a long bucket list of<br />

IN NEED OF REPAIR: Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Museum general<br />

manager Wendy Riley inspects the museum’s leaky<br />

spouting, part of its drainage system that urgently<br />

requires an upgrade.<br />

repairs is to replace spouting so<br />

old it could be in our collection.”<br />

Recent heavy rains have<br />

shown the museum’s ageing<br />

drainage system is not fit for<br />

purpose either.<br />

Accordingly, the museum<br />

has begun a fundraising<br />

campaign called ‘Stop the Leaks’<br />

using crowdfunding platform<br />

Givealittle.<br />

After participating in<br />

The Funding Network NZ’s<br />

Generosity Generator training<br />

programme, it launched a twoweek<br />

campaign to urgently raise<br />

the $15,700 needed.<br />

“We know that not everyone<br />

can support us by giving money.<br />

However, sharing the campaign<br />

with friends and family will<br />

help spread the word,” Riley<br />

said.<br />

At the time the fundraising<br />

campaign opened, the museum<br />

community had already raised<br />

more than $3000 towards<br />

replacing spouting in the<br />

building where its Anzac<br />

collection is displayed. It hopes<br />

the Givealittle campaign will<br />

raise the rest.<br />

Vivid memories of Parker – Hulme<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE DEATH of 84-year-old<br />

Anne Perry, who was convicted<br />

in 1954 of one of Canterbury’s<br />

most notorious murders,<br />

has brought back some vivid<br />

childhood memories for Mt<br />

Pleasant resident David Bolam-<br />

Smith.<br />

Juliet Hulme, as she was<br />

known then, and her best friend<br />

Pauline Parker<br />

murdered<br />

Parker’s<br />

mother<br />

Honora<br />

Parker at<br />

Victoria<br />

Park on the<br />

Cashmere<br />

David<br />

Bolam-Smith<br />

Hills.<br />

The 45-yearold<br />

died after<br />

being hit<br />

about 20 times with a brick.<br />

Bolam-Smith’s father worked<br />

at Ilam Homestead, where the<br />

Hulme family lived, and he knew<br />

the two teenage girls.<br />

Thomas Bolam-Smith (known<br />

as Bolam because there were two<br />

Toms in the family) was the fulltime<br />

gardener at the homestead<br />

at the time Hulme (aged 15), and<br />

her best friend Pauline Parker<br />

(aged 16) were plotting the<br />

murder.<br />

“I was just 9-years-old at the<br />

PAST: Anne Perry, formerly known as Juliet Hulme, died in the United States<br />

aged 84 on April 10. She was a teenager when convicted of helping to murder her<br />

friend’s mother on the Port Hills.<br />

time,” said Bolam-Smith.<br />

“But I still remember us sitting<br />

around the dinner table at our<br />

house in Burnside Rd (Memorial<br />

Ave) discussing my father’s<br />

gardening work for the Hulme<br />

family.”<br />

After the murder and when the<br />

girls were charged, Bolam-Smith<br />

remembers the talk around<br />

the table and the shock of it all<br />

happening.<br />

“My parents didn’t say much<br />

after that, perhaps because they<br />

didn’t want to upset us,” said<br />

Bolam-Smith.<br />

But perhaps they remained<br />

quiet because the Hulme family<br />

circumstances were scandalous<br />

for the time.<br />

“I actually think my parents<br />

talked about the murder and<br />

the trial privately out of our ear<br />

shot,” said Bolam-Smith.<br />

After the trial, it is<br />

believed Hulme’s father,<br />

Dr Henry Hulme, 46, was<br />

forced to resign his post as<br />

rector of Canterbury University<br />

College, not just because of the<br />

trial, but also because of the<br />

scandal of the affair his wife<br />

was believed to be having with<br />

Walter (Bill) Perry, who also<br />

lived in the homestead at the<br />

time.<br />

Testimony at the murder trial<br />

stated Perry’s relationship with<br />

Hilda Hulme was known to her<br />

husband and even accepted by<br />

him.<br />

After Juliet Hulme<br />

was released from prison, she<br />

moved overseas, changed her<br />

name to Anne Perry and later<br />

became a crime writer. The two<br />

girls also became the subject of the<br />

1994 Peter Jackson film, Heavenly<br />

Creatures, starring Kate Winslet<br />

and Melanie Lynskey.<br />

At the time of the murder,<br />

Bolam-Smith and his family<br />

lived in a house on Burnside Rd.<br />

It was an unsealed road leading<br />

to the airport and the nearby<br />

Ilam Homestead, owned by<br />

Canterbury University College<br />

(Canterbury University), was a<br />

semi-rural property on the very<br />

outskirts of the city.<br />

The Hulme family lived there<br />

and it was used by the college for<br />

entertaining. It was described as<br />

beautiful and renowned, with<br />

an idyllic, spectacular garden<br />

setting.<br />

In evidence during the trial,<br />

Juliet’s mother, Hilda described<br />

the place as big and oldfashioned<br />

with grounds planted<br />

in shrubs.<br />

murder return to gardener’s son<br />

She told the court she knew<br />

from Juliet’s diary that the two<br />

girls had a secret place in the<br />

garden they called the temple,<br />

but they kept it to themselves,<br />

and she had no idea of its<br />

significance.<br />

“I don’t think my father knew<br />

anything about that,” said<br />

Bolam-Smith.<br />

“At least he never mentioned<br />

it to us.”<br />

Bolam-Smith’s father died<br />

in 2011 after a long career as<br />

an award-winning gardener<br />

and garden designer, and<br />

after working for a number<br />

of companies, including<br />

Associated British Cables, and at<br />

the Cracroft Estate.<br />

His wife, Bolam-Smith’s<br />

mother, Dora is now 106 and<br />

still remembers the turbulent<br />

time.<br />

“I was talking to her on Friday<br />

about Perry’s death (on April 10)<br />

and she remembers it clearly,”<br />

said Bolam-Smith.<br />

They have both seen the film<br />

Heavenly Creatures.<br />

“It was a bit weird trying to<br />

connect it to my memories of<br />

the time,” said Bolam-Smith.<br />

“My memory and the film’s<br />

interpretation don’t exactly<br />

match, but my mother said she<br />

thinks it will be a lasting record<br />

of what actually happened.”<br />

CASE: Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme on their way out of a preliminary court hearing<br />

at Christchurch in 1954.<br />

PHOTO: CHRISTCHURCH STAR<br />

The clearest memory Bolam-<br />

Smith has of the time was<br />

being told by his father they hit<br />

Pauline’s mother with a rock.<br />

“I remember wondering what<br />

would happen to them and<br />

where would they go? From a<br />

child’s point of view, that was an<br />

awful thing to do.<br />

“The fact that two girls could<br />

have done that to the mother,”<br />

he said.<br />

She has taken up a new role at<br />

Performance Wellbeing, a company<br />

which helps manage staff<br />

well-being in schools.<br />

“It’s a real wrench for me to<br />

leave,” she said.<br />

“Principalship is a big job. I<br />

hope that I have given it my all.”<br />

McInerney’s time at the school<br />

would not be forgotten.<br />

“The visit with Ed Sheeran was<br />

unbelievable,” McInerney said.<br />

Sheeran’s visit was organised<br />

by MoreFM.<br />

He stayed at the school for<br />

nearly two hours, singing and<br />

talking with the children.<br />

“He chatted to the kids about<br />

finding their thing and working<br />

really hard at it,” McInerney said.<br />

The pupils were also treated<br />

to visits from musician Dave<br />

Dobbyn and former prime<br />

minister Jacinda Ardern for<br />

the opening of the new school<br />

campus in 2020. “Jacinda talked<br />

about never giving up when you<br />

believe in something strongly<br />

enough,” McInerney said.<br />

She became principal in 2016<br />

while it was based at a temporary<br />

site on the Van Asch College<br />

grounds in Sumner, which the<br />

school moved to in 2011 following<br />

the earthquake.<br />

In 2015, former Minister<br />

of Education<br />

Hekia Parata<br />

announced the<br />

school may<br />

close due to<br />

the threat of<br />

potential disruption<br />

to<br />

education<br />

in the<br />

future.<br />

Parata<br />

initially suggested the pupils<br />

moved to Mt Pleasant or Sumner<br />

schools.<br />

But following McInerney’s<br />

appointment as principal, she<br />

made it her mission to save the<br />

school.<br />

After enlisting geotechnical<br />

engineers, lawyers and the community,<br />

she worked to convince<br />

the Government that Redcliffs<br />

needed its school.<br />

“Once the Government’s made<br />

their mind up about something,<br />

it’s actually really hard to change<br />

that decision,” McInerney said.<br />

“We did marches, we did a<br />

postcard campaign where we<br />

bombarded MPs with postcards<br />

about why it should stay open.”<br />

musician Ed Sheeran<br />

was a highlight<br />

McInerney at<br />

a farewell<br />

assembly<br />

on<br />

Friday.<br />

Their first submission to the<br />

Government was turned down<br />

but the school was saved.<br />

“It was a massive battle,”<br />

McInerney said.<br />

“Every time we met a hurdle<br />

we found a way to get through.”<br />

McInerney then oversaw the<br />

design and build of a new campus,<br />

which pupils moved into in<br />

2020.<br />

“We could focus on a future-focused<br />

school and the kind<br />

of purpose-built<br />

environment<br />

that we wanted<br />

for our children,”<br />

she said.<br />

Former<br />

Casebrook<br />

Intermediate<br />

School deputy<br />

principal Nick<br />

Leith will replace<br />

McInerney as principal.<br />

Nick Leith<br />

“The world of education is<br />

a small and highly-connected<br />

one in Ōtautahi. I have followed<br />

Redcliffs story like many in our<br />

city over the years and had heard<br />

great things about an amazing<br />

new build and the strength of<br />

support for their local school in<br />

the community,” Leith said.<br />

“It is a tight community and<br />

I understand the importance of<br />

the role, especially following on<br />

from the legacy of the previous<br />

principal, Rose, her team, and<br />

the community that fought so<br />

hard and endured so much to<br />

have the school rebuilt.”<br />

Plea for action over shipping containers<br />

•From page 1<br />

But the containers continue<br />

to be stacked, frustrating<br />

nearby residents who have<br />

Community<br />

Board chair Paul<br />

Paul<br />

McMahon<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

MP Tracey<br />

McLellan.<br />

McMahon has also emailed<br />

Mauger and city council chief<br />

executive Dawn Baxendale.<br />

Mauger was hailed as a<br />

people’s hero before he was<br />

elected mayor. He used his<br />

contracting company to dig<br />

a trench in Bexley to stop<br />

flooding.<br />

McCutchan was disappointed<br />

Mauger had not responded to<br />

the plea for help.<br />

Mauger did not respond to<br />

questions put to him by <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News. A spokesperson<br />

for the mayor said it was a<br />

matter for city council staff to<br />

deal with.<br />

While the resource consent<br />

is being considered, the city<br />

council has temporarily allowed<br />

containers to be stacked six<br />

high, meaning the stack could<br />

be about 17m.<br />

“This was not a decision that<br />

was made lightly by council<br />

staff given the concerns<br />

being raised,” the city council<br />

spokesperson said.<br />

“An abatement notice was<br />

issued for the activity. Most<br />

aspects of the non-compliance<br />

were addressed by the operator.<br />

However, some aspects were<br />

deferred to await completion<br />

of processing of the resource<br />

consent.”<br />

The six-high container stacks<br />

obstruct residents’ views of the<br />

Port Hills.<br />

“We had such a beautiful view<br />

of the area, and it’s just been<br />

diminished,” McCutchan said.<br />

The city council spokesperson<br />

said the reason for allowing<br />

the containers to be stacked six<br />

high was due to a difference<br />

in interpretation – whether a<br />

container meets the definition<br />

of a building and is subject to<br />

the height limit.<br />

The property owner’s lawyer<br />

also said they would apply for<br />

resource consent to stack up to<br />

six containers, the spokesperson<br />

said.<br />

“Council staff considered it<br />

reasonable to allow those issues<br />

to be thoroughly and properly<br />

considered through the resource<br />

consent process.”<br />

McCutchan wants to see<br />

the District Plan height limit<br />

enforced for safety, noise and<br />

the view from her home.<br />

McMahon wants the original<br />

plan enforced. “It really is not<br />

fair,” he said.<br />

“It’s affecting people’s quiet<br />

enjoyment of their own homes.”<br />

With the increased height<br />

of the stacks, McMahon said<br />

views of the Port Hills are<br />

considerably more obstructed.<br />

“I was used to seeing this<br />

beautiful view of the hills,” he<br />

said.<br />

While exercising discretion<br />

is standard city council<br />

practice, McMahon wants to<br />

see discretion in favour of the<br />

community, instead of the<br />

operator.<br />

“I understand the council<br />

must adhere to the law and<br />

it’s very difficult when dealing<br />

with wealthy developers, but<br />

Woolston only has the council<br />

to stand up for us,” he said.<br />

“It is very complex and very<br />

unfair that people’s right to the<br />

quiet enjoyment<br />

of their homes is<br />

being denied to<br />

them.”<br />

McLellan<br />

thinks it would<br />

be better if the<br />

city council<br />

focused on<br />

enforcing the<br />

District Plan.<br />

Tracey<br />

McLellan<br />

“I’ve had a lot of feedback<br />

from residents who are<br />

disappointed and frustrated<br />

about this development,” she<br />

said.<br />

“They’re concerned about<br />

the noise, the safety of stacked<br />

containers, the loss of visual<br />

amenity, and the impact of<br />

industrial activity on the<br />

sensitive ecological river<br />

corridor.”

New wetland has far-reaching benefits<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

THE MISSION to restore a<br />

neglected Little River reserve<br />

into a thriving wetland is<br />

now under way, promising<br />

benefits for biodiversity and<br />

the Wairewa-Lake Forsyth<br />

catchment.<br />

The 4ha block of land alongside<br />

the Christchurch Akaroa Rd<br />

has been used, until recently, to<br />

graze cattle.<br />

But now it will become a home<br />

for native birds, reptiles and<br />

insects, like tree wētā.<br />

The land is<br />

owned by the<br />

city council,<br />

and its biodiversity<br />

team<br />

leader Alison<br />

Evans – who<br />

lives in Little<br />

Alison Evans<br />

River – is leading<br />

the project.<br />

“Wetland<br />

areas have been very much<br />

destroyed around New Zealand<br />

in the past and not given the<br />

protection they deserve,” Evans<br />

said.<br />

She won’t say what species<br />

of lizards will benefit from the<br />

reserve, due to the threat of<br />

poachers.<br />

When the lease on the land<br />

originally designated for storing<br />

gravel came to an end, Evans<br />

thought the area deserved<br />

something better.<br />

“We thought it would be a worthy<br />

project to plant the area up.”<br />

With help from the<br />

community, Evans plans to fill<br />

the reserve with native trees and<br />

plants, restoring the site to a<br />

thriving wetland.<br />

“It is going to be supporting<br />

the fresh waterway that’s in the<br />

whole catchment,” Evans said.<br />

A majority of the plants will<br />

be paid for through a $37,000<br />

external grant from Matariki<br />

Tu Rākau (NZ Forest Service)<br />

and the Ministry of Primary<br />

Industries.<br />

The city council’s community<br />

partnerships fund will pay for<br />

$17,000 worth of plants and plant<br />

maintenance.<br />

disappeared, drained primarily<br />

to support agriculture and<br />

horticulture, Evans said.<br />

The project is only the<br />

beginning of restoring Banks<br />

Peninsula’s wetlands and<br />

bringing back wildlife.<br />

The reserve is close to the<br />

Department of Conservation’s<br />

Montgomery Reserve.<br />

Once restored, the wetland<br />

would encourage wildlife from<br />

more mature reserves, such<br />

as Montgomery, over the hill<br />

and down into the Wairewa<br />

catchment.<br />

“The wildlife can start to use<br />

these little reserves as corridors,<br />

so if we can strategically plant<br />

up reserves that benefit the<br />

movement of biodiversity,<br />

that’s a really good thing,” Evans<br />

said.<br />

It is important for species like<br />

native lizards and insects to be<br />

able to move between reserves,<br />

to expand and keep their genetic<br />

pool strong, she said.<br />

“Birds can really easily move<br />

between different patches of<br />

native forest but other things like<br />

lizards and insects can’t.<br />

“Pasture provides a real barrier<br />

for those things to move.”<br />

In the reserve Evans will plant<br />

an array of native plants, such as<br />

flax and cabbage trees.<br />

“There’s a beautiful kahikatea<br />

tree in there now,” she said.<br />

Evans hopes to plant other<br />

kahikatea within the wetland.<br />

Work to prepare the reserve<br />

has begun. The city council’s<br />

nature staff have been<br />

controlling the growth of wild<br />

plants like holly in the reserve.<br />

They will also do site preparation<br />

for the planting, beginning in<br />

August.<br />

Big number of little egrets sighted<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

ONLY TWO or three little<br />

egret birds typically come to<br />

New Zealand most years – but<br />

Wairewa-Lake Forsyth has a<br />

surplus of the rare visitors.<br />

City council ecologist Andrew<br />

Crossland was undertaking a<br />

survey of waterbirds on the lake<br />

on Thursday when he saw three<br />

little egrets.<br />

“Little egrets probably occur<br />

on the lake about three times in<br />

a decade. The previous highest<br />

count was two birds about six or<br />

seven years ago.”<br />

Crossland said little egrets<br />

are about half the size of white<br />

herons. They have a black bill and<br />

black legs with yellow soles on<br />

their feet.<br />

“The plumage is white and<br />

adults often have two long white<br />

plumes on the backs of their<br />

heads.”<br />

Crossland said there has been<br />

a high number of sightings of<br />

little egrets in New Zealand this<br />

year, due to birds in Australia<br />

dispersing because a drought<br />

cycle has followed a wet cycle and<br />

inland wetlands have dried up.<br />

“This then pushes birds to<br />

the Australian coast. Some<br />

individuals may get blown by<br />

winds or simply wander across<br />

the Tasman Sea, reaching New<br />

Zealand. That’s what’s happened<br />

with these little egrets.<br />

“In addition to the three at<br />

Lake Forsyth and another at<br />

Waikuku, others have been reported<br />

from Manawatu Estuary,<br />

Te Anau Lake, Waipapa Point,<br />

and Stewart Island.”<br />

Little River resident, long-time<br />

bird enthusiast and photographer<br />

Steve Atwood (above right) keeps<br />

an eye out for little egrets on both<br />

Wairewa-Lake Forsyth and Te<br />

Waihora-Lake Ellesmere.<br />

Over the last 13 years, Attwood<br />

has only seen little egrets on two<br />

other occasions. This was the first<br />

time he has seen more than one,<br />

at once.<br />

“We seem to be having what<br />

birders call an influx.”<br />

This year, 11 little egrets have<br />

been reported across New Zealand,<br />

Attwood said.<br />

Like white heron, little egrets<br />

RARE VISITOR: Three little egrets were spotted at<br />

Wairewa-Lake Forsyth last week. Typically only two or three<br />

are seen across New Zealand each year.<br />

are widely distributed throughout<br />

Europe, Asia and Africa,<br />

but are rare in New Zealand, he<br />

said.<br />

The amateur ornithologist<br />

owns the guided birdwatching<br />

company Auldwood Birds.<br />

He also used to work for the<br />

Department of Conservation.<br />

“I’ve been involved in conservation<br />

and birding in one way<br />

or another for as long as I can<br />

remember,” he said.<br />

Attwood received a message<br />

late last week, letting him know<br />

there were little egrets at the lake.<br />

“A lot of people tell me if they<br />

see unusual birds,” he said.<br />

Little egrets tend to come for<br />

their non-breeding season and<br />

only stay for the late autumn and<br />

winter, he said.<br />

Occasionally some will stick<br />

around. These are likely to be<br />

juveniles, birds that have not yet<br />

reached breeding age.<br />

BACK WITH more solutions<br />

Lyttelton’s Ōhinehou Collective<br />

is focusing on fashion with the<br />

Festival of Action: Thoughtful<br />

Fashion on Saturday.<br />

The free community event<br />

at Lyttelton Arts Factory from<br />

3-6pm looks at fun ways to be<br />

more thoughtful about fashion,<br />

with inspiring and entertaining<br />

talks, a mending circle, a mini<br />

vintage market, a quilt exhibition<br />

and a runway show – featuring<br />

makeovers, an op-shop challenge,<br />

children’s creations and more.<br />

Writer Joe Bennett will recount<br />

his adventures in China tracking<br />

down the materials for his undies,<br />

while traveller Roz Johnson<br />

will share what she learned from<br />

packing super light for two years<br />

of international travel. There will<br />

be updates on new initiatives<br />

from the fashion industry and<br />

opportunities to share ideas over<br />

kai and drinks.<br />

Ōhinehou Collective founder<br />

Breeze Robertson started the<br />

group to encourage more community<br />

engagement in sustainability<br />

challenges.<br />

“We know that the fashion<br />

industry produces more greenhouse<br />

gas emissions than international<br />

flights and maritime<br />

shipping combined. And we<br />

know that 85 per cent of clothing<br />

goes into landfill,” she said.<br />

“It’s good to be aware of these<br />

problems, but the question is<br />

‘what are we going to do about<br />

it?’ I’m not happy with just being<br />

aware, I wanted to get together<br />

and explore solutions.”<br />

Although it can be tempting<br />

to switch off, the more climate<br />

change impacts on our lives, the<br />

more we need to engage, Robertson<br />

said.<br />

“One of the best antidotes to<br />

climate anxiety is to take action,<br />

whether that’s individual action<br />

in your own life, getting active<br />

at a political or collective level,<br />

or getting together with your<br />

community to explore ideas.”<br />

Memorial Rose Garden worth a visit<br />

TUCKED AWAY in a corner<br />

of Ferrymead Heritage Park<br />

is the Memorial Rose Garden,<br />

which commemorates the 21<br />

Addington railway workers who<br />

lost their lives in World War 2.<br />

A small group of enthusiasts<br />

quietly work away to keep the<br />

memory of these workers alive.<br />

Heritage Roses NZ member<br />

Jude Turner and her fellow<br />

enthusiasts have been tending<br />

the memorial garden for the last<br />

decade.<br />

“Originally the Memorial<br />

Fountain, which was circled by<br />

old roses, was at the site of the<br />

former Addington workshops,”<br />

said Turner.<br />

“During the 1990s when the<br />

area was cleared for the Picton to<br />

Bluff railway line, the memorial<br />

garden fell into disrepair. Given<br />

many of the roses date back to<br />

the early 1900s, Heritage Roses<br />

NZ was keen to find a safe place<br />

for the both the roses and the<br />

memorial.”<br />

Ferrymead Heritage Park<br />

came to the rescue, and now a<br />

stunning array of some 90 different<br />

roses can be found.<br />

The small group of workers,<br />

primarily from Heritage Roses<br />

NZ and Ferrymead Lions Women’s<br />

Group, meet fortnightly to<br />

tend the garden.<br />

“We have had to source new<br />

rose bushes to replace those<br />

that didn’t survive, and like any<br />

garden there is always work that<br />

needs to be done” said Turner.<br />

“We couldn’t keep up with the<br />

pruning, spraying, fertilising,<br />

and mulching without the help<br />

of others. John Craig bikes over<br />

from New Brighton to mow the<br />

lawns, IDEA Services provides<br />

helpers when it comes to composting<br />

and mulching time, and<br />

John Matsis from Ferrymead<br />

Heritage Park has made 21 beautiful<br />

metal roses for the garden,<br />

to name just a few.<br />

“Recently we successfully<br />

approached the Sumner Ferrymead<br />

Foundation for a grant to<br />

purchase fertiliser.”<br />

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation<br />

trustee Jane Paterson said<br />

the foundation was keen to support<br />

the memorial garden.<br />

“We are all about ‘locals helping<br />

locals’ and want to support<br />

both community groups and<br />

individuals in our catchment<br />

area – from Taylors Mistake<br />

through to Heathcote and<br />

around to Brookhaven. Here we<br />

have a group of volunteers who<br />

are providing their time and<br />

skills to ensure a local memorial<br />

garden thrives, so it made sense<br />

to provide them with a grant.<br />

“In the past we have supported<br />

a diverse range of community<br />

groups – from Taylors Mistake<br />

Surf Life Saving Club and<br />

Sumner Community Gardens<br />

through to Redcliffs Library and<br />

Mt Pleasant Community Centre.<br />

Where we can, we like to provide<br />

some level of support.”<br />

The memorial garden is at its<br />

best come spring and is worth<br />

making time to wander around<br />

when you next visit Ferrymead<br />

Heritage Park. But if that’s not<br />

an option, have a look at the<br />

Poppy Places website – a Places<br />

of Remembrance project to ensure<br />

we never forget – where the<br />

memorial garden is featured.<br />

If you would like to help<br />

maintain the memorial garden,<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

The British Hotel<br />

FROM ITS earliest beginnings<br />

in 1849, the bustling port town<br />

of Ōhinehou Lyttelton welcomed<br />

both travellers and a growing<br />

population of sailors, waterfront<br />

labourers and, from 1867, railway<br />

workers. As a result, there was<br />

always a high demand for hotel<br />

accommodation and social<br />

venues. By the late 1800s at least<br />

eight traditional hotels dotted<br />

Norwich Quay and London<br />

St, each catering to a distinct<br />

clientele. The story of the British<br />

traces the shifting fortunes of<br />

this early hotelier trade.<br />

In 1849, the Canterbury<br />

Association allocated land for<br />

immigration barracks to accommodate<br />

settlers from December<br />

1850. The land was handed over<br />

to the Canterbury Provincial<br />

Council in 1855 and then cleared<br />

in 1863 for leasing.<br />

In 1866, merchant David Davis<br />

built a large warehouse at the<br />

Norwich Quay and Oxford St intersection<br />

where Reverend Dudley’s<br />

pioneer church had been.<br />

Davis was bankrupt by 1869,<br />

but his warehouse was among<br />

the few structures in that part of<br />

town to survive the Great Fire of<br />

1870 and the Lyttelton Borough<br />

Council subsequently leased it to<br />

William Savage. He applied for a<br />

hotel licence that was approved<br />

in <strong>May</strong> 1874.<br />

‘Savage’s British Hotel’ was a<br />

rather rough affair until tenders<br />

for the full conversion of the<br />

original corrugated-iron clad<br />

timber warehouse were sought<br />

in November 1874. The refit<br />

was completed and the hotel<br />

reopened in early 1875. While<br />

the Lyttelton Borough Council<br />

retained ownership, Savage<br />

retained the lease on the property<br />

but transferred the licence<br />

to John Pierce in June 1875.<br />

Pierce developed the hospitality<br />

business and then promptly went<br />

bankrupt in February 1877.<br />

Despite numerous licensee and<br />

lessee changes in the following<br />

years, the British Hotel built<br />

a reputation for hospitality,<br />

catering to families, community<br />

groups and commercial travellers<br />

alike.<br />

Over the next decades,<br />

the British Hotel became<br />

a cornerstone of Lyttelton<br />

hospitality with its basement<br />

dive bar a favourite of ‘Home’<br />

(or British) sailors. By 1901,<br />

due to popular demand, the<br />

hotel began focusing on ladies’<br />

accommodation, as advertised in<br />

Wise’s Post Office Directory.<br />

In 1907 the hotel was extended<br />

into the adjacent Lyttelton Times<br />

building, thereby providing 30<br />

extra beds.<br />

Around this time, the British<br />

Hotel was also accommodating<br />

seamen from the early Antarctic<br />

expeditions. While officers such<br />

as Scott and Shackleton lodged<br />

and socialised at the Mitre, the<br />

seamen preferred the British.<br />

This hospitality connection with<br />

‘Home’ sailors continued well<br />

into the mid 20th century.<br />

The British Hotel, being<br />

owned by the Lyttelton Borough<br />

Council, played an important<br />

part in the prohibition debates<br />

of the early 20th century. In<br />

the unsuccessful 1905 drive for<br />

a ‘no licence’ vote it was noted<br />

the council’s vocal resistance to<br />

licensing change was perhaps<br />

due to the monies it made from<br />

Lyttelton’s £14,690 per year alcohol<br />

trade.<br />

In the famous prohibition vote<br />

of 1919, the council was likewise<br />

on the side of ‘strong drink’<br />

versus ‘moral cleanliness’. The<br />

loss to the council should the<br />

British Hotel be delicensed was<br />

estimated at £978 per annum.<br />

While the national vote was<br />

tight, the council’s budget was<br />

saved by the delayed postal votes<br />

of 40,000 overseas troops.<br />

By 1940, the 73-year-old building<br />

required significant repairs<br />

and the council sought a lessee to<br />

rebuild it in brick for £5000.<br />

Ballins Breweries secured a 21-<br />

year lease in 1941 and completed<br />

the new moderne art deco-style<br />

building in 1942. Built using<br />

a concrete frame with brick<br />

spandrels, it features tapestry<br />

brick, horizontal alignment, steel<br />

casement windows, and rounded<br />

corners. Porthole windows in<br />

the basement’s corner elevation<br />

complement the hotel’s harbour<br />

location, while the architect is<br />

unknown.<br />

From the 1960s, a combination<br />

of factors contributed to the<br />

decline of the British Hotel and<br />

other establishments in the area.<br />

The opening of the Lyttelton<br />

Road Tunnel in 1964, the termination<br />

of the ‘six o’clock swill’ in<br />

1967, the cessation of inter-island<br />

ferry services in 1976 and the<br />

containerisation of cargo all<br />

led to smaller workforces and a<br />

decrease in travellers.<br />

By the early 1980s, the British<br />

Hotel had fallen on hard times<br />

and was perceived as catering to<br />

the ‘rougher members of society’,<br />

at least according to a 1983 rating<br />

valuation.<br />

The hotel continued to function<br />

sporadically throughout the<br />

1990s, but eventually closed its<br />

doors in the mid-2000s.<br />

After 153 years, the Banks<br />

Peninsula District Council,<br />

which succeeded the Lyttelton<br />

Borough Council, finally sold<br />

the land and building to private<br />

owners in 2002. The former<br />

basement dive bar reopened<br />

as the El Santo bar in the late<br />

2000s, but the catastrophic February<br />

22, 2011 earthquake forced<br />

its closure.<br />

After initial repairs, the dive<br />

bar reopened as the Hellfire Club<br />

in 2016, and today remains open<br />

for business as the Commoners.<br />

Of the eight historic Lyttelton<br />

hotels that operated from the<br />

late 1800s through much of the<br />

previous century before the<br />

earthquakes, only two are left<br />

standing. The Mitre remains<br />

closed for repairs or demolition,<br />

and in 2024 the British will mark<br />

its 150th anniversary.<br />

With a name like Smiths City, ordinary is right there in our name.<br />

But it’s never been in our nature. At the first sign of ordinary, we<br />

try to do the opposite.<br />

There’s no such thing as an ordinary bed, or an ordinary oven or<br />

fridge – and that’s why we don’t sell ordinary products. If you’re<br />

after a Saturday morning trampoline, a Tuesday-night-traditionmaker,<br />

or a local community art gallery, we’re your people.<br />

For ordinary old Smiths, we’re anything but.<br />
