Scott Watson<br />

exhibition<br />

rattles artists<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

TWO ARTISTS who exhibit<br />

at the Rei Gallery in Lyttelton<br />

don’t want their names<br />

associated with the art collective<br />

while double-murderer Scott<br />

Watson’s exhibition is<br />

there.<br />

Watson is serving<br />

a life sentence for the<br />

1998 murders of Ben<br />

Smart and Olivia Hope.<br />

Gallery owner Damian<br />

Mackie would not<br />

say who the artists were,<br />

as they had requested<br />

temporary anonymity.<br />

“If they’re not<br />

comfortable with having their<br />

identity as part of, or connected<br />

to this exhibition, that’s fine.”<br />

The Rei Collective is a group of<br />

artists who display their work at<br />

the gallery.<br />

Scott<br />

Watson<br />

Mackie said Facebook posts<br />

claiming artists were leaving the<br />

collective were not true.<br />

“They’re from people who<br />

really wouldn’t put any contribution<br />

into the community at<br />

all, keyboard warriors.”<br />

Mackie said<br />

the exhibition<br />

has been<br />

well-attended<br />

by about 100<br />

people since<br />

it opened last<br />

Friday.<br />

“People want<br />

to discover<br />

the creative<br />

practice and mahi<br />

of someone who has been<br />

incarcerated.”<br />

The gallery is hosting a range<br />

of Watson’s artwork, including<br />

paintings and carvings.<br />

Mackie said it was more than<br />

Damian<br />

Mackie<br />

a typical Rei Gallery exhibition,<br />

with some people travelling<br />

from Nelson and Oamaru to<br />

view it.<br />

He said there have been no<br />

concerns expressed by any exhibition<br />

visitors.<br />

Watson is scheduled<br />

to appear for another<br />

parole hearing. He has<br />

always maintained<br />

his innocence for the<br />

murders of Smart and<br />

Hope, whose bodies<br />

have never been found.<br />

They were last seen at a<br />

New Year’s Eve party at<br />

Furneaux Lodge in the<br />

Marlborough Sounds.<br />

Watson and Mackie first<br />

met during a prison visit in<br />

2017 after years of the gallery<br />

owner following the story of the<br />

case.<br />

Helping Your Cat Live Their Best Life<br />

Is your athletic kitty bounding around the house from<br />

benchtop to shelves, leaping onto fences, and scaling<br />

trees during outdoor adventures? Or are they curled up<br />

inside, basking by the fire? As winter sets in, it’s easy<br />

to assume that cats prefer the warmth and comfort of<br />

indoors. But what if there’s more to their behaviour than<br />

just a seasonal shift? Your feline friend might be hiding<br />

some aches and pains that make moving around less<br />

appealing.<br />

Arthritis in cats is more common than you might think.<br />

By age seven, about 30% of cats show signs of arthritis,<br />

and by age twelve this jumps to 90%. Unlike humans, cats<br />

rarely display obvious signs of pain. Instead, they exhibit<br />

subtle changes in behaviour. Here’s what to watch for:<br />

Early Signs of Arthritis:<br />

• Reluctance to jump onto countertops, fences,<br />

or climb stairs<br />

• Decreased agility, grooming, and activity levels<br />

• Less inclination to hunt, play, and run<br />

• Changes in preferred sleeping spots<br />

• Spending more time sleeping<br />

Advanced Signs of Arthritis:<br />

• Inability to jump onto high surfaces and reduced<br />

overall activity<br />

• Difficulty grooming, resulting in an unkempt coat,<br />

especially around the back<br />

• Irritability when stroked or handled<br />

• Toileting outside the litter tray or preferring the litter<br />

tray to going outside<br />

• Seeking isolated sleeping spots and reduced<br />

interaction with owners<br />

Lameness is often not a common sign, as multiple joints<br />

might be affected, making them equally uncomfortable on<br />

both sides.<br />

How Can We Help?<br />

Managing your cat’s weight and encouraging moderate<br />

activity are essential, but pain management is crucial. Cats<br />

are sensitive to many medications, limiting our options.<br />

Traditionally, anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) like<br />

meloxicam have been used with good results, but they<br />

come with potential side effects, especially with long-term<br />

use.<br />

A newer treatment, Solensia, is available as a monthly<br />

injection. This is an antibody that targets and blocks<br />

nerve-growth factor (NGF), a protein which is involved in<br />

chronic pain and increases in arthritic joints.<br />

Whilst nutritional supplements marketed for helping with<br />

arthritis in pets, may be a helpful additional tool in some<br />

cases, none of them are a suitable substitute for effective<br />

pain management.<br />

At Kōwhai Vet, we aim to improve the quality of life for<br />

our patients, ensuring you enjoy a happy, healthy pet for<br />

longer. We know that treating chronic pain with regular<br />

medications such as meloxicam has a positive impact and<br />

our cat owners have reported significant improvements<br />

with Solensia, such as increased activity levels, ease in<br />

jumping onto beds or couches, more enjoyment of being<br />

stroked, and better grooming habits.<br />

If your feline friend isn’t quite themselves, bring them in<br />

for a check-up. Let’s discuss how we can help them keep<br />

living their best life.<br />

Minimum $30k needed to<br />

replant reserve after fire<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

REMEDIATION work at the<br />

fire-scorched Ōhinetahi Reserve<br />

will start tomorrow.<br />

February’s Port Hills fire burnt<br />

large sections of the reserve<br />

near Governors <strong>Bay</strong>, increasing<br />

rockfall risk and forcing closure<br />

of the popular Ellas Track.<br />

The reserve is owned by the<br />

Summit Road Society. It has<br />

started fundraising for restoration<br />

planting and investing in<br />

rock stabilisation work.<br />

“It’s a really<br />

popular track<br />

that really does<br />

need to be<br />

reopened for<br />

the public,” said<br />

society president<br />

Paula Jameson.<br />

The reserve<br />

was also badly<br />

damaged by the<br />

Paula<br />

Jameson<br />

2017 Port Hills fires, which again<br />

led to a restoration effort.<br />

“The fires this time affected<br />

20 hectares rather than 80, but<br />

this time we’re having to deal<br />

with rockfall risk on the track,”<br />

Jameson said.<br />

The city council recently finished<br />

a rockfall risk assessment,<br />

identifying the areas where safety<br />

improvements were needed.<br />

Parts of the reserve will remain<br />

closed until the stabilisation<br />

work is complete, which is expected<br />

to take one to two days.<br />

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

About $30,000 is needed to<br />

purchase fire-resistant native<br />

trees.<br />

Jameson said the fundraising<br />

goal will only pay for volunteer<br />

plantings for this year.<br />

“If we want to do more<br />

Vanessa Weenink is surveying<br />

“It’s something we were planning<br />

you have to go with the<br />

timing of things when people’s<br />

eyes are on an issue,” she said.<br />

The online survey can be<br />

NEW RELEASE BOOK REVIEWS<br />

The Little Venice Bookshop<br />

by Rebecca Raisin<br />

A bundle of mysterious letters. A trip to<br />

Venice. A journey she’ll never forget.<br />

When Luna loses her beloved mother, she’s<br />

bereft: her mother was her only family, and<br />

without her Luna feels rootless. Then the<br />

chance discovery of a collection of letters<br />

in her mother’s belongings sends her on an<br />

unexpected journey. Following a clue in the<br />

letters, Luna packs her bags and heads to<br />

Venice, to a gorgeous but faded bookshop<br />

overlooking the canals, hoping to uncover<br />

the truth about her mother’s mysterious<br />

past. Will Luna find the answers she’s looking<br />

for - and finally find the place she belongs?<br />

‘Ahhh I absolutely loved this book!...<br />

Made me laugh, warmed my heart...<br />

Fabulous.’<br />

Nothing Significant To Report by Dario Nustrini<br />

A Kiwi soldier’s hilarious true stories of mischief and misadventure<br />

in the New Zealand Army<br />

Laugh-out-loud yarns from a soldier in the New Zealand<br />

Army When new recruit Dario Nustrini’s head was freshly<br />

shaved in preparation for the army, he knew nothing about<br />

what training to fight, kill and die for New Zealand would<br />

look like. Since leaving leaving high school the year before,<br />

he had been on a steady diet of spliffs, Speights and the<br />

occasional sandwich from the cafe he worked at as a waiter.<br />

He weighed about as much as an empty pillowcase, with<br />

slightly less insulation from the cold. Nothing Significant to<br />

Report is the brilliantly entertaining and unvarnished truth<br />

of what life is like in the New Zealand Army.<br />

From back-breaking exercises designed to make recruits<br />

spit the dummy to roleplaying in an SAS manhunt and<br />

accidentally starting a rubbish fire in a military compound,<br />

these are self-deprecating tales of misfits, mischief and<br />

camaraderie. When Dario is deployed to war-torn Iraq,<br />

what will he think of the role he has spent five years<br />

preparing for?<br />

Rehabilitation key<br />

to art programme<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I reached out to him, because I knew at<br />

the time we were supporting some carvers<br />

in prison, and Scott wanted to learn to<br />

carve and develop the skillset.”<br />

As lead carver of the Whakaraupō Carving<br />

Centre Trust, Mackie has organised<br />

a carving education programme for prisoners<br />

in Christchurch Men’s Prison.<br />

Mackie would not comment on whether<br />

he believes Watson was wrongly convicted,<br />

but said it is important to help rehabilitate<br />

prisoners regardless of crime or sentence<br />

length.<br />

“It is so important that we do what we<br />

can to support and rehabilitate non-Maori<br />

and Māori back into the community.”<br />

Watson’s art is not for sale. The exhibition<br />

is free to visit and runs until June 20.<br />

HUGE RANGE OF KIDS SHOES<br />

Group show explores<br />

women at work<br />

STODDART Cottage is celebrating the art<br />

and work of women throughout June, in<br />

its major themed group exhibition of the<br />

year.<br />

Women’s Work explores the way women’s<br />

roles in society, and as artists, have<br />

been defined and limited.<br />

It weaves together work from women<br />

and non-binary artists from a spectrum<br />

of backgrounds, ages and practices,<br />

including Scarlett-Rose Adamson, Anita<br />

DeSoto, Raukohe Hallett, Turumeke<br />

Harrington, Hannah Harte, Janna van<br />

Hasselt, Sook Hwang, Maria Lee, Moana<br />

Lee, Herbert Stockman and Naomi van<br />

den Broek.<br />

The exhibition highlights the decorative<br />

and applied arts, such as textiles, weaving<br />

and ceramics, which were once were separated<br />

from conceptions of the so-called<br />

“high arts” of painting and sculpture.<br />

It aims to be provocative in the way<br />

the artists approach their material and<br />

subject matter, from embroidery depicting<br />

emotions spurred by exploitation, to a<br />

large scale painting in the style of the Old<br />

Masters – a feminist reframing of the role<br />

of a mythical woman.<br />

Canterbury University art history<br />

department senior lecturer Dr Rosie<br />

Ibbotson will explore histories of women’s<br />

art at a presentation at 2pm on Saturday<br />

(free, no booking required).<br />

• Women’s Work is showing until<br />

June 30. Stoddart Cottage is open<br />

MIN SARGINSON lives atop a<br />

“When I started there was<br />

With offices in Lyttelton,<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> and<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong>, the company<br />

grew into the leading agency for<br />

the bays.<br />

“I always felt even when we<br />

were the predominant player, we<br />

LEGACY: Min Sarginson at home in Allandale. The real estate agent has retired after<br />

selling houses for more than 40 years. Right – Sarginson with her partner Richard Lyth.<br />

could never rest on our laurels<br />

because some good operator<br />

could come in and they could<br />

take you out,” she said.<br />

Understanding the unique<br />

requirements of her clients was<br />

critical to the agency’s success.<br />

“You have to know what people<br />

are looking for in local schools,<br />

how they are going to travel into<br />

town if they’re a commuter, that<br />

sort of thing.”<br />

Since enjoying time at home<br />

during the Covid-19 lockdowns,<br />

Sarginson had been considering<br />

when to retire.<br />

“Before that, I could not<br />

imagine not going into the<br />

office everyday. That was my<br />

identity. Then out of the blue I<br />

got a phone call from the <strong>Bay</strong>leys<br />

property manager in February,<br />

asking if I’d consider selling.”<br />

The sale to <strong>Bay</strong>leys Property<br />

Management was finalised on<br />

<strong>May</strong> 16, with Sarginson officially<br />

retiring on the same day.<br />

“For some time I’ve felt a bit<br />

of disconnect, like is this really<br />

happening?”<br />

Her family was “surprised”<br />

by the sale, but is “immensely<br />

proud” of her career.<br />

Born and raised on a small<br />

farm near Oamaru, Sarginson<br />

was the youngest of 11 siblings.<br />

She was a well-behaved child,<br />

she says, who enjoyed playing<br />

games with her sisters.<br />

“It was a fantastic lifestyle, but<br />

the family was spread over an<br />

entire generation. We weren’t all<br />

very close with each other.”<br />

Belonging to a large family<br />

caused a slight rebellious streak<br />

to develop, which helped when<br />

starting the agency.<br />

“It was like there were two<br />

lots of parents and I think<br />

being in that position as the<br />

youngest gave me a sense of<br />

independence.”<br />

Sarginson met her husband<br />

Euan through friends in 1972 and<br />

they married in 1974.<br />

“We lived in England for<br />

two-and-a-half years, had our<br />

daughter over there,” she said.<br />

They moved to Allandale<br />

in 1980 and built Sarginson’s<br />

current house, which the couple<br />

moved into in 1987.<br />

“We had a shared sense of<br />

interest in travel and we really<br />

just fit together at the time. So, as<br />

many did in those days, we got<br />

married.”<br />

NEWS 7<br />

on real estate and retirement<br />

‘I always felt the house sells<br />

itself, so I wanted to do<br />

things differently when I<br />

got into real estate’<br />

– Min Sarginson<br />

A notable fashion and car<br />

racing photographer, Euan died<br />

of cancer in 2004.<br />

Sarginson met her current<br />

partner Richard Lyth in 2010, on<br />

a cycling trip between Blenheim<br />

and Picton.<br />

Sarginson never envisioned<br />

herself as a real estate agent. She<br />

worked as a high school teacher<br />

in England and then was a stayat-home<br />

mum for her children,<br />

Alice and Finn. It was during<br />

that time her interest was sparked<br />

and she took distance classes.<br />

“There was a bit of a reputation<br />

in those days for real estate<br />

agents to be a bit sleazy, whether<br />

that was fair or not. I always felt<br />

the house sells itself, so I wanted<br />

to do things differently when I<br />

got into it,” she said.<br />

After getting her licence in<br />

1983, she worked at David Murray<br />

Real Estate for 15 years.<br />

“At that point I loved real<br />

estate. I was doing well in it, but I<br />

just felt like I was in a rut.”<br />

Eventually, she felt the need to<br />

strike out on her own.<br />

“It was challenging. Especially<br />

at first when people would tell me<br />

NOTABLE: Properties Sarginson has sold over the years<br />

include Margaret Mahy’s former home at Governors <strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

‘you’re brave’, which doesn’t exactly<br />

help with your confidence,<br />

but I pushed through.”<br />

Over the years, Sarginson has<br />

sold everything from sections<br />

to notable properties, including<br />

children’s author Margaret<br />

Mahy’s former residence at Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

The movement of wealthier<br />

residents into the area has been<br />

a dramatic change since she<br />

started.<br />

Sarginson says the cultural<br />

shift was inevitable, but has<br />

caused the bays to lose its “pioneering<br />

spirit”.<br />

“With all the developments,<br />

many people have that sense of<br />

change. I once heard the saying<br />

‘the last person in wants to be the<br />

last person in’.”<br />

The increase in car ownership<br />

since the 1980s has also been a<br />

factor.<br />

“The sense of isolation, particularly<br />

in Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

started to shift,” she said.<br />

However, Sarginson says some<br />

things about the bays have not<br />

changed.<br />

“The hill still forms a bit of<br />

mental separation between people.<br />

There’s things that happen<br />

TIME OUT: Sarginson at Lake Tekapo. A cycling trip was<br />

always a welcome break after busy days at the agency.<br />

over here and things in the city.<br />

So there is a very different market<br />

of people.”<br />

Sarginson describes herself as a<br />

shy and reserved person in most<br />

aspects of life, but to succeed<br />

when connecting with clients she<br />

felt the need to adopt a stronger<br />

persona.<br />

“I’m not naturally sociable, but<br />

in real estate I have made sure to<br />

grow my confidence by learning<br />

the area. Now I’m very confident<br />

when dealing with clients’<br />

needs.”<br />

Now she’s retired, Sarginson<br />

plans to spend more time visiting<br />

her children and grandchildren,<br />

and going on cycling trips.<br />

“It’s very beneficial to just get<br />

out on the bike with your mates.<br />

I also do yoga everyday, and there<br />

will be a lot of down time for<br />

reading.”<br />

She has mixed feelings about<br />

ending her career, but is looking<br />

forward to more relaxation.<br />

“It feels fantastic, but strange.<br />

You no longer have this big<br />

responsibility anymore weighing<br />

on you.”<br />

Next month, Sarginson and<br />

Lyth will visit France as the first<br />

big trip of her retirement.<br />

Backyard sanctuary plan to<br />

attract at risk lizard species<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

KATRINA MILLER is a few<br />

weeks away from finishing a lizard<br />

sanctuary in her garden.<br />

The environmental scientist<br />

from Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> is hard<br />

at work fine-tuning an attractive<br />

environment for the reptiles.<br />

“It’s quite exciting to create<br />

a habitat for them. It’s a great<br />

opportunity for us to learn more<br />

about the lizards around here,”<br />

said Miller.<br />

As far as she knows, it is the first<br />

garden of its kind in the area.<br />

“I’ve done a bit of research<br />

looking at DOC resources and<br />

speaking to people. It’s about<br />

already knowing the natural<br />

habitat in your area and building<br />

something similar.”<br />

The species in Banks Peninsula<br />

include the declining Canterbury/<br />

Waitaha and jewelled geckos<br />

which are regarded as at<br />

risk species with declining<br />

populations.<br />

With the help of her family,<br />

looking unlikely, <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News readers<br />

are lamenting the lack<br />

A bus route for Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> residents would be a great<br />

option for those looking to<br />

access services, entertainment,<br />

etc to Christchurch, with a zero<br />

emissions bus.<br />

– Julie Summers<br />

I am moving to Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> in next year or so (building<br />

a house) and would dearly like to<br />

see the bus go there.<br />

There is already a bus stop<br />

Miller has laid down matting,<br />

grass seed, and crafted a maze of<br />

rocks and ceramics for the lizards<br />

to live in.<br />

“I’ve got a neighbour who<br />

chopped down a walnut tree,<br />

so I’ve got rotting wood which<br />

creates a nice environment for<br />

insects which lizards like to eat.”<br />

The garden also features angled<br />

ceramic panels to catch rain and<br />

moisten the garden.<br />

Lizards enjoy a damp<br />

environment, but the section also<br />

has drainage to prevent flooding.<br />

It has been a fun family project<br />

for the Millers with husband Dave<br />

and 9-year-old twins Aria and<br />

Ellie pitching in.<br />

and the Cashmere bus goes to<br />

the top of Cashmere hill so I feel<br />

like maybe at least once every<br />

morning and every evening<br />

during weekdays it could service<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> for people<br />

commuting into town.<br />

It would make it a lot nicer for<br />

getting to work, not to mention<br />

better for the environment.<br />

Granted there may not be the<br />

need for a regular service but I feel<br />

like once or twice a day surely.<br />

– Helen Borg<br />

I’ve got some now, but on<br />

three separate occasions I was<br />

advertising for flatmates and I’ve<br />

had more than 20 good applicants<br />

It was frustrating. I was<br />

“They’ve been really helpful<br />

the right rocks and making<br />

pathways.”<br />

Miller is grateful for the<br />

support she has received from<br />

the community including<br />

donations of ceramics and<br />

construction tips.<br />

These types of people generally<br />

use public transport, and so the<br />

lack of this severely limited my<br />

options. I’ve advertised on three<br />

separate occasions.<br />

It took me a while to find<br />

suitable flatmates, but I will add<br />

was out of action we were totally<br />

dependent on the goodwill of<br />

friends and neighbours to access<br />

do shopping etc. It was a stressful<br />

time.<br />

Elderly people who can no<br />

longer drive have little option<br />

other than to leave the bay, given<br />

the absence of public transport.<br />

Ironic given that, via the shortest<br />

We need flexible bus sizes and<br />

New coaches,<br />

courts crucial<br />

for future of<br />

netball club<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A LACK of coaches and court<br />

space is stopping the Lyttelton<br />

Netball Club from reaching its<br />

full potential.<br />

As the club celebrates its 100th<br />

anniversary, president Sabrina<br />

Saunders said members are<br />

eagerly awaiting the completion<br />

of the multi-sport zone at the<br />

recreation ground.<br />

“Right now we have the choice<br />

of playing outdoors at Lyttelton<br />

Primary School or we have to<br />

fight for times at the rec centre.”<br />

Until the multi-sport zone is<br />

finished, the club’s 50 members<br />

will keep struggling with finding<br />

places and times to practice.<br />

The city council estimates<br />

the recreation ground upgrade,<br />

including the netball courts, will<br />

finished in about three months.<br />

The club wants more members<br />

from around Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>,<br />

but Saunders says inflexible practice<br />

times at Lyttelton courts has<br />

forced many to go further afield to<br />

locations like Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

to play their netball.<br />

“There’s so many opportunities<br />

for us to grow. In the future we<br />

want to cater to everyone’s needs<br />

better and get as many players on<br />

board as possible.”<br />

More coaches are needed to<br />

help the club expand, including<br />

for the year 12 girls team and for<br />

adult teams Saunders want to<br />

create.<br />

SailGP an inspiration for future sailors<br />

• By Andrew Bourner<br />

SAILGP IS ONE of the largest<br />

sailing events in the world, but<br />

many of its effects can be seen<br />

much closer to home.<br />

Christchurch’s hosting of<br />

SailGP in 2023 and <strong>2024</strong> has<br />

created new opportunities for<br />

sailing clubs.<br />

Interactions with the teams<br />

themselves were memorable, said<br />

Sabrina Saunders, manager of<br />

Naval Point Yacht Club.<br />

“We had a dinner in our club,<br />

and part of the New Zealand<br />

team just showed up,” she said.<br />

“There was just a buzz in the<br />

room . . . the kids went insane.<br />

They were all grabbing things to<br />

autograph.”<br />

Saunders said such opportunities<br />

can inspire kids from a range<br />

of backgrounds.<br />

“We realised,<br />

even with the<br />

Lyttleton kids,<br />

probably 70 per<br />

cent of them<br />

have never been<br />

on a boat in the<br />

harbour, and we<br />

live right here.”<br />

Her goal as<br />

Sabrina<br />

Saunders<br />

manager is to create more opportunities<br />

for kids to get on the<br />

water.<br />

“I love seeing the kids work<br />

through their fears and frustrations<br />

and then get a smile on their<br />

face realising it’s so much fun.”<br />

The Inspire programme was<br />

also great for getting children<br />

involved.<br />

Run by SailGP, the programme<br />

aims to make sailing more accessible<br />

to younger generations and<br />

local communities.<br />

Based at Naval Point Club, it<br />

was also a big hit with kids from<br />

other clubs.<br />

“It was pretty exciting for<br />

them,” said Dominic Sutton,<br />

vice-commodore at Mt Pleasant<br />

Yacht Club.<br />

He said the kids went out in<br />

performance boats which they<br />

haven’t had the opportunity to do<br />

in the past.<br />

“It’s inspired them to keep<br />

going and enjoy their sailing.”<br />

As with most clubs, Mt<br />

Pleasant runs a learn-to-sail<br />

SAILING STARS: The Christchurch SailGP event in Lyttelton attracted big viewing audiences but has also brought a boost<br />

to local sailing clubs through promotion of the sport.<br />

programme designed to help get<br />

younger generations involved<br />

with sailing.<br />

“We’re oversubscribed for the<br />

coming season,” Sutton said.<br />

While the reason for this is<br />

uncertain, “the interest in that<br />

programme has certainly grown<br />

in the last two years – it could<br />

well be because of the [SailGP]<br />

coverage.”<br />

This youth involvement can<br />

lead to big future opportunities,<br />

but children and their parents<br />

also need to be realistic, Sam<br />

Jones, the commodore at the<br />

Waimakariri Sailing Club said.<br />

“It’s like watching Formula<br />

One and then wanting to get your<br />

driver’s licence.<br />

“We’ve got to explain to kids<br />

that coming in to learn in a<br />

sailing dinghy is very different<br />

to doing 90 kilometres an hour<br />

around a course.”<br />

LEARNING: Most sailing clubs in Christchurch offer programmes to help get young<br />

people into sailing.<br />

Trevor Crowe recently<br />

wowed the crowd at an<br />

event hosted by the <strong>Bay</strong>leys<br />

Sumner office.<br />

Enjoying drinks and<br />

nibbles in front of about 80<br />

guests at the Sumner Bowls<br />

Club, Crowe entertained<br />

with accounts and visuals of<br />

his very full and incredible<br />

life involved with motorsport<br />

on both land and water.<br />

Having battled and<br />

conquered serious medical<br />

adversaries, Crowe still builds<br />

and races cars competitively<br />

in his 80th year.<br />

Prizes of Crowe’s book<br />

(available at local book<br />

shops) were also given out.

TREASURES FROM THE PAST 15<br />

Lyttelton’s TS1 and the Canterbury Hotel<br />

• By JC Betts<br />

IN LYTTELTON during the<br />

1850s, Norwich Quay was often<br />

called ‘The Beach’. On the south<br />

side was a rocky shore, with a<br />

sandy stretch opposite the first<br />

hotel in port, The Mitre, useful<br />

for beaching boats and waka from<br />

Ōhinehou, the kāinga (settlement)<br />

at the western end.<br />

THe early settlers co-operated<br />

to net impressive hauls of fish off<br />

this beach, but during the 1860s it<br />

and the kāinga disappeared under<br />

reclamation as the railway and<br />

tunnel were constructed.<br />

Towards the eastern end of the<br />

beach, Captain Joseph Thomas<br />

had a wharf constructed, extending<br />

out from the bottom of<br />

Oxford St.<br />

The Canterbury Association<br />

Store was built alongside, the only<br />

building on the south side of Norwich<br />

Quay. This store was later<br />

replaced by an impressive brick<br />

Post Office incorporating customs<br />

and telegraph services. This was<br />

the point of entry to Canterbury<br />

for all travellers and for communications<br />

with the outside world.<br />

The north side of the quay was<br />

subdivided into quarter acre town<br />

sections for distribution among<br />

the colonists in February 1851.<br />

Land was priced at £3 per acre<br />

(approx NZ$1050 today) and each<br />

settler was entitled to one town<br />

section and 50 rural acres.<br />

Early investors in the<br />

Canterbury Association were<br />

often wealthy supporters of EG<br />

Wakefield’s colonisation plans<br />

Hotel just visible on the right.<br />

who never intended to become<br />

settlers themselves and used<br />

agents in New Zealand to act on<br />

their behalf.<br />

The first of these investors was<br />

Maria Somes, widow of shipping<br />

magnate Sir Joseph Somes, who<br />

had supplied all the vessels for<br />

the New Zealand Company<br />

settlements.<br />

Having first choice, Maria’s<br />

agents JR Godley and WG Brittan<br />

selected the most valuable section<br />

in Canterbury, Town Section 1<br />

(TS1) on the corner of Norwich<br />

Quay and Oxford St. For her 50<br />

rural acres they chose the area<br />

directly above Lyttelton, north of<br />

Ripon St.<br />

Maria never came to New Zealand<br />

but conveyed her property<br />

to Christ’s College “as long as the<br />

said college shall continue in union<br />

with the Church of England”<br />

to endow scholarships, which<br />

continue to this day.<br />

The school began in 1851<br />

with five pupils at the Lyttelton<br />

Immigration Barracks and moved<br />

to Christchurch in 1852. Somes<br />

and College Rds in Lyttelton commemorate<br />

Maria’s generosity.<br />

In the dining hall of Christ’s<br />

College, among the portraits of<br />

distinguished greying gentlemen,<br />

is one of an attractive, dark haired<br />

woman in a red dress – it is Maria<br />

Somes, and she deserves her place<br />

of honour.<br />

What would Maria have<br />

thought about the use made of her<br />

gift?<br />

TS1 became the site of the Canterbury<br />

Hotel (originally called<br />

the Canterbury Arms). Richard<br />

Davis is named as the first leaseholder<br />

but his father Rowland was<br />

more closely associated with the<br />

business.<br />

An Irishman, Rowland had<br />

emigrated to Wellington with<br />

his family in 1840 and became<br />

involved in the hotel trade, establishing<br />

a Working Men’s Association<br />

and an Oddfellows Lodge<br />

before his move to Lyttelton.<br />

As the port grew, and with<br />

everyone reliant on sea transport,<br />

business at the hotel boomed.<br />

By the 20th century the Union<br />

Steamship Company’s interisland<br />

ferry service was bringing<br />

hundreds of travellers from<br />

Wellington at seven o’clock every<br />

morning, with as many leaving<br />

every evening, until the end of the<br />

service in 1976.<br />

In the 1960s, the Canterbury<br />

Hotel, closest to the ferry terminal<br />

along with the British Hotel on<br />

the opposite corner, sold as many<br />

as 300 breakfasts some mornings.<br />

There have been three hotel<br />

buildings on the site. The first was<br />

built of timber and burnt down,<br />

like everything else in Lyttelton’s<br />

central block, in the fire of 1870.<br />

The second hotel was replaced<br />

by an imposing brick edifice with<br />

a battlemented parapet in the<br />

1920s after a smaller fire.<br />

Then, in February 2011, following<br />

Canterbury’s devastating<br />

magnitude 6.4 earthquake, the<br />

Oxford St frontage was in heaps<br />

on the road, the interior on show<br />

like a messy doll’s house. Demolition<br />

followed in July 2011.<br />

The Canterbury Hotel occupied<br />

only the corner of the quarter acre<br />

site. On the rest of the section,<br />

which extended up Oxford St half<br />

way to London St, many smaller<br />

businesses came and went.<br />

The first edition of the Lyttelton<br />

Times was printed in a shed on the<br />

property in January 1851.<br />

Over the years, private houses,<br />

stables, chemists, drapers, ironmongers,<br />

coopers, tearooms,<br />

bakers, tattooists, restaurants,<br />

lawyers, newspaper offices, bookshops,<br />

barbers, and more have<br />

occupied TS1.<br />

It seems miraculous that the<br />

building known locally as the ‘Tin<br />

Palace’, the 1871 office of Duncan<br />

Cotterill’s legal firm, survived the<br />

earthquakes, the only building on<br />

TS1 to do so.<br />

The materials and style – vertical<br />

corrugated iron with carpenter<br />

gothic details – were very popular<br />

after the 1870 fire for those who<br />

could not afford brick or stone,<br />

to the extent that the port was<br />

nicknamed ‘Little Tin Town’.<br />

Even buildings with impressive<br />

frontages used corrugated iron for<br />

the side and rear walls.<br />

Today the site, once the most<br />

desirable in Canterbury, has been<br />

on the market for quite some time,<br />

but there are no buyers as yet.<br />
