Lodestar Avenue residents may get wish for no more trucks „„ By Emily O’Connell AFTER MONTHS of being woken by passing trucks in the early hours, Lodestar Ave residents are hopeful a new citywide bylaw will give them some peace and quiet. The Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, which will give the city council the ability to restrict heavy vehicles on certain roads, was approved by councillors on Thursday. Now Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway is pushing for heavy vehicle restrictions to be placed on Lodestar Ave. She said the restriction would be put on the avenue in mid-2018 if city council staff approved it. “Such a decision would be the outcome of a technical assessment and public consultation, which has not yet occurred,” Cr Galloway said. A resident at Lady Wigram Retirement Village on Lodestar Ave was very pleased it had been approved. “We are waiting in hope,” he said. On Thursday, Cr Galloway asked a city council staff member whether the new bylaw would be applicable to Lodestar Ave. •Turn to page 4

Photographic collection reflects peninsula history „„ By Sarla Donovan A 30-YEAR record of life on Banks Peninsula has been donated to the Akaroa Museum. Retired photographer Donald McKay recently gifted his entire collection of photographic negatives to the museum.

Museum collections manager Daniel Smith said the images were an important record of Banks Peninsula life covering the years from about 1950 through to the 80s, a period which was not well-represented in the museum’s existing collection. •Turn to page 10

from the editor’s desk WHAT A terrific fight Rose Williams (page 3) had put up against fast food giant Wendy’s. Her battle will see Wendy’s staff across New Zealand backpaid for owed days in lieu. Rose took her case Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment claiming Wendy’s were not honouring their lieu day committments. And she’s won. It will mean Wendy’s staff across the country will share in about $1.6 million in owed pay. Rose is no stranger to adversity – her husband Murray was killed in a speedway crash, and she’s had to work hard to keep her household going. Great stuff Rose. We’ve refreshed our masthead and page 2, and there’s more changes in the wind. I’ll keep to you posted. Barry Clarke

Fast food worker wins lieu day battle „„ By Emily O’Connell A WOMAN has won a threeyear battle with a fast food company to ensure employees across the country get their days in lieu. Wendy’s, which has 23 outlets in New Zealand, including one in Hereford St and in Hornby, has breached two sections of the Holidays Act 2003. Wendy’s employee Rose Williams went to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment three years ago with the lieu day issue after she had been working at the Hornby restaurant for a year. Mrs Williams said Wendy’s staff were not being given a lieu day after working on a public holiday. She told Southern View it feels “pretty good” to win the case. Unite Union, of which Mrs Williams is a delegate, has estimated it would cost Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back employees’ leiu days. MBIE senior labour inspector Kim Baldwin found Wendy’s breached section 56 and 60 of the Holidays Act. Section 56 says an alternative holiday must be provided to an employee who works on a

public holiday if that day would otherwise have been a working day for them. Section 60 sets out how those employees should be paid for the alternative holiday. Wendy’s has been ordered to comply with the two sections, conduct a review of its restaurants and keep records of staff contacted, rosters and leave. It has been ordered to give all past and present employees

from the Hornby and Dunedin restaurants their alternative holidays, or the equivalent pay since the restaurants were opened. Wendy’s has also been ordered to do the same for all other restaurants across the country backdated to July 1, 2012. Unite Union national secretary Gerard Hehir said it was “very happy” with the result. “We think it has significance

beyond our dispute with Wendy’s actually,” he said. Mr Hehir said it’s hard to establish what would be a person’s normal working day in hospitality because of their variable shift work. “The problem we have with Wendy’s is they said no-one was entitled to one [an alternative holiday] at all, because hours changed occasionally,” Mr Hehir said. He admired how tenacious Mrs Williams was throughout the trial. Mrs Williams left a job at Countdown to raise her son Josh after her husband Murray died in a speedway crash 14 years ago. She said her late husband was racing a sidecar at Ruapuna Speedway when he crashed and died instantly. She started working at Hornby Wendy’s four years ago. She said public holidays are the restaurant’s busiest days and it wasn’t fair to not get a day in lieu for working them. She plans to continue working at Wendy’s and has not encountered any problems while standing up for her rights. Wendy’s head office could not respond to Southern View before deadline yesterday.

Woolston community centre rebuild starts CONSTRUCTION OF the new Woolston community centre and library will begin after a sod-turning ceremony was held yesterday to mark the milestone. The new facility on Ferry Rd will replace the former Woolston Community Library, which was damaged beyond repair in the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011 earthquakes. The new design echoes the former library’s brick exterior. The facility will include a volunteer library, small meeting room, a hall for community groups to use and a public toilet. It is scheduled to open halfway through next year. Linwood Ward city councillor Yani Johanson spoke at yesterday’s sod-turning. It was also attended by Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton, city council staff and Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board members. Built in 1871, the Woolston Community Library was one of the first suburban libraries to open in Christchurch.

Lodestar Ave residents may get wish to ban trucks •From page 1 He said it would have to assess each case individually. “An operational policy will need to be developed to support the bylaw,” he said. Cr Galloway said the timing for the policy hadn’t been determined. “Such a policy would contain a number of conditions where restrictions can be considered, such as the number and type of heavy vehicles using the street,” she said. Cr Galloway said she’s pleased the city council will now have the tools it needs to address speed and heavy vehicle traffic issues. Wigram MP Megan Woods said it was a good first step. “Now we have to work to finalise the process, consult with local people and hopefully get the bylaw applied to Lodestar Ave,” Dr Woods said. Lady Wigram Retirement Village residents say they are often woken at 4.30am. They have been lobbying for bylaw to ban trucks on Lodestar Ave since April when they met with Cr Galloway and Dr Woods.

Stonemasons start on Timeball „„ By Sarla Donovan STONEMASONS will start work tomorrow on Lyttelton’s iconic Timeball Tower as its rebuild picks up pace. They will start installing the exterior stonework this week using stones from the original structure where possible, said Heritage New Zealand general manager Nick Chin. A small group of workers have been stationed at the Ferrymead site where the stones are stored, cleaning and preparing them for the stonemasons to use. Wellington firm Bosworth Stone won the contract for the stonework, which is expected to take until March to complete. Two stonemasons will be on site and will have helpers at various times. Meanwhile, the first concrete pour – up to the first floor of the reinforced concrete walls – will also take place this week. Mr Chin said everything is “on track and on budget” for an April completion date. The $2.8 million restoration project has been funded by a $1.3 million Lotteries grant; $1.1 million grant from charitable trust, Landmark; and $325,000 from Stout Trust, Holcim

PROGRESS: Repairs to Lyttelton’s Timeball Tower are picking up pace, with stonemasons are at work on site. The aim is to restore the tower which stood tall against the harbour hills before the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Cement, Parkinson Memorial Trust and the Mainland Foundation, said Mr Chin. The insurance payout funded the demolition costs. Community members have driven the campaign to rebuild the landmark and they would be acknowledged and celebrated at an opening ceremony when the Timeball was completed. The landscaping will eventually be

restored as much as possible to its original state, with new information boards on site which will display the Timeball’s history. It is one of only 15 left in the world and the only one to have undergone a post-earthquake restoration. When completed, the tower will once again overlook the harbour and township, with the

Speed limit may drop Progress on Dyers Pass Rd campaign „„ By Sarla Donovan GOVERNORS BAY resident Rosie Belton is pleased the Dyers Pass Rd speed limits could be lowered to 60km/h. The well-known author has been a vocal campaigner on road safety issues, including speeding vehicles and boy racer activity in Governors Bay. The city Rosie Belton council is currently seeking public feedback on a proposal to change the speed limit on Dyers Pass Rd, from its intersection with Governors Bay Rd to the Sign of the Takahe.

Plaque to remember transgender advocate „„ By Bridget Rutherford A BRONZE plaque to remember the woman who brought transgender issues out of the shadows in Christchurch will be installed in a Barrington bus shelter. The plaque to honour Christina Loughton will be installed on a bus seat in the Athelstan St bus shelter, with an unveiling to be held early next year. Ms Loughton died in 2015, aged 77. She founded Agender Christchurch in 2000, with the goal of connecting and helping the transgender community in the region. Five years later, she worked to open Rainbow House, which provided a safe haven for transgender people in trouble. Ms Loughton also spent years campaigning for better bus services in the city and pushed for the Athelstan St shelter to be installed. The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board has approved a grant of $345 towards the installation of the plaque.

Traffic lights going in under cover of darkness NIGHT-TIME WORK has started to replace a busy Spreydon roundabout with traffic signals. The signals are being installed at the Sparks Rd and Lyttelton St intersection as part of the construction of the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway, which will link Halswell to the central city. The intersection is one of six along the cycleway route to be fitted with traffic signals as part of the project. City council transport planning and delivery manager Lynette Ellis said the roundabout was meant to be upgraded in 2011 but was put on hold because of the February 22, 2011, earthquake. She said the change would make the intersection safer. The landscaping and lighting will also be upgraded in many places along the cycleway route and more than 6km of new footpaths will be built. The traffic lights should be operational by March. “The Sparks Rd-Hoon Hay Rd roundabout will also be replaced after the work on the Lyttelton St intersection is completed,’’ Ms Ellis said.

WELCOME: The cruise ship Himalaya visited Akaroa on December 23, 1960. Serving kai from a hangi are (from left) Naomi Bunker, Olive Robinson, Marie Tini, unidentified and Polly-Ann Robinson. A Maori concert party was also held for the passengers in The Gaiety.

Peninsula life captured by photographer •From page 1 They include pictures of social and community events, weddings, farming activities and scenic views of Banks Peninsula. Mr McKay, 83, grew up on a farm in Le Bons Bay. An only child, he left the farm for three years to attend Christchurch Boys’ High School as a boarder, from 1947-49, where he joined the camera club. “We had some really really good instructors, including Len Casbolt and Frank McGregor. Also I used to spend a lot of time at my uncle Stan MacKay’s as he was the Christchurch Star Sun photographer and his son Ross was a skilled horse racing photographer. I used to admire their beautiful cameras and enlargers . . . I’m not sure what I liked more, the photography or the equipment.” Mr McKay sold his push bike and his best pair of shoes to buy a second hand camera from H.E. Perry in Colombo St. “I used that camera for two or three years, photographing various events, weddings, and children.” He shot his first wedding at 16, “local people.” Returning to Le Bons Bay in 1949, Mr McKay’s passion for photography was a frequent distraction

from farm work. He photographed aspects of farm life was well as local weddings, 21sts and other social events. In 1961, he was offered a job as medical photographer at Burwood Hospital, but continued to travel back to the peninsula in the weekends to photograph various events. The collection includes some interesting documentary records of peninsula life, Mr Smith said. “As a historical record the collection is extremely rich.” “He would photograph activities like docking at his farm in Le Bons Bay. There’s a whole series of images of sheep getting their tails chopped off; guys holding knives splattered with blood. It’s an interesting record of a lost way of life.” Fortunately Mr McKay still had his job books which record the content of the pictures. Local researcher Jan Shuttleworth had also already identified many subjects in the photographs by working through negatives digitised by Mr McKay. Nevertheless, cataloguing hundreds of negatives into the Akaroa Museum collection would be a “long process,” Mr Smith said. The museum plans to mount an exhibition towards the end of next year.

PERSONALISED PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS

2018 Student Leaders: 1st Row: Vai Mariner, Crystal Mehlhopt, Jenna Hollis, Leeah Mullany, Sarah Moana Wooff-Smyth 2nd Row: Eden Pettigrew, Adonai Schwenke, Anaru Gray, Cole Barrie 3rd Row: Havana Aaifou, Thomas McHutchison, Sapana Kharal, William Paulden, Sean Robertson-Wright, Makayla Austin

Enrolling now for 2018 Principal’s Report Warm greetings to the Linwood College community. Kia ora koutou. Talofa lava. Kia orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. It is with pleasure that I am able to report to our community that Linwood College has had a most positive year. It has been a year of significant thinking and planning as we listen to our community’s input regarding how we should re-develop with our whole-school rebuild. Linwood College is clear-eyed about the forms of education that work for our students and we have this bedrock of understanding through our partnership with our community. Our community views education as the wellbeing of the whole person. All developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of whom they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition.

Waitaha Haka Competition Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed curriculum’. This means the school, students and families knowing: 1. Students’ learning and skills as they come into LC from our partner primary schools and building on these successes. 2. How the learning at LC connects to what the students want to do when they leave school. “What are my post-school pathways and how does LC help me to achieve these pathways?” In this way learning is meaningful to the individual and strengths-based. At Linwood College the individual matters. Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed Linwood College in the second half of Term 3. The confirmed report is now public and I am delighted to say that the school is back on the three year return cycle. It is a testament to everyone’s collective vision and positive work for our school: Board of Trustees, staff, students, whanau, partner schools and community. Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive season and summer holiday. Richard Edmundson: Tumuaki - Principal

Sports Awards Night

Over Labour Weekend, Kimihia Te Matauranga Kapa Haka Group competed at the Waitaha Secondary Schools’ Haka Competition at the Aurora Centre. The group was made up of a combination of students from Linwood College, Christchurch Girls’ High School and three schools from Te Tai Poutini (West Coast), those being Westland College, Greymouth High School and Buller High School. The competition was of a very high standard this year with ten groups competing for a spot at the National Haka Competition in 2018. Kimihia gained placings in the following categories: 1st place in Poi 2nd place in Moteatea/ Traditional Chant 2nd place in Whakawatea/ Exit Song 2nd equal Te Whakahua o te Reo/ Language with Te Pa o Rakaihautu 3rd place in Haka 3rd place in Waiata-a-ringa/ Action Song 3rd place in Waiata Tira/ Choral 3rd place for Hamiora Te Rupe/ Male Leader Kimihia was placed 3rd overall in the competition. We are also very proud of Dayton RapanaPham who was placed 2nd for his Whaikorero/Traditional Speech. We would like to acknowledge our Kaitataki/Leaders of the group, Mairieka Prentice and Hamiroa Te Rupe, for all their hard work in leading the group. Ms Paringatai - Head of Maori Department

Duke of Edinburgh – Silver Expedition

Once again, Linwood College’s annual 'Sports Awards' ceremony was a very successful evening. We were lucky enough to have Shane Thrower return to Linwood College as our guest speaker, talking about how sport has impacted his life and the opportunities that it can provide. Richard Edmundson (Principal) and Finlay Laird (Linwood College Board of Trustees member), presented the major awards for the evening. We also had special guests from Christs' College and ARA Institute of Canterbury in attendance. We would like to thank the Linwood College community and Linwood College Board of Trustees for their continuous support as we continue to pursue sporting excellence. Congratulations to all of our award winners for 2017. Top awards were presented to the following accomplished students:

The outdoor Duke of Edinburgh experience has helped us to learn new things about life and also about ourselves. Although it pushed us to our mental and physical limits, it was the best experience ever! We have learnt to really be grateful for the small things in life! Piper Stewart (Year 11)

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT

Only 26 days till Christmas NEW RELEASES Ford in New Zealand by John Stokes

If ever there was a definitive historical book about the iconic Ford Motor vehicle in New Zealand, this is it! FORD IN NEW ZEALAND is a magnificently researched history of the introduction of the Ford brand in New Zealand. An incredible microscopic view of the beurocracy of the government and the general public’s `hesitancy’ of the introduction of the `automobile’ in New Zealand Rich in information, the book describes the assembly of the first Model T Ford in Canada and the shipment of the vehicles to New Zealand. Incredibly, New Zealand soon became the second largest export market for Ford Canada! The book details the evolution in New Zealand, from the late 19th century to the `horseless carriage’ of 1904, when the first Ford came to New Zealand, including never seen before photography of New Zealand’s first `Ford’ owner - Robert Thompson and his `Fordmobile’. hip between `the average kiwi’ and Ford, including the first NZ motor review of the car (1909).

Hideaways

Where New Zealanders escape By Sam Stuchbury and Hilary Ngan Kee A stunning showcase of tucked-away escape spots all over New Zealand, and a tribute to a simpler way of life. Hideaways is a celebration of quintessential New Zealand holiday escapes: mountain huts, coastal baches, riverside cribs, converted silos, hunting shacks, and more. Breathtaking photography and evocative text explore far-flung retreats from around the country, with a focus on the unique, secluded and romantic — each offering a change of pace, a chance to disconnect. A beautiful tribute to getting away from it all. Sam Stuchbury is the founder and director of creative agency Motion Sickness. He started the business, now an industry-leading studio, while at Otago University, where he studied design and marketing. He has a passion for film, photography, adventure and the outdoors. Sam lives in Newmarket, Auckland, with his partner Hilary.

Like a Bat Out of Hell

The Larger than Life Story of Meat Loaf By Mick Wall “I never wanted to be a big star. I just wanted to be the biggest at what I do! Powerful, unstoppable, heavy - when that word still meant something good!” - Meat Loaf, as told to Mick Wall Everything in the story of Meat Loaf is big. From the place he was born; to the family he was born into; to the sound he made; and of course the records he sold. Now, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Bat Out of Hell, the album that gave rise to Meat Loaf’s astonishing career, the premiere of Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical, and the launch of a mammoth two-year farewell tour, Mick Wall, who has interviewed Meat Loaf on numerous occasions throughout his career, pulls back the curtains to reveal the soft-hearted soul behind the larger-than-life character he created for himself. From a tumultuous childhood with an alcoholic father to the relentless abusive bullying from classmates and their parents alike, nobody could have predicted Meat Loaf’s meteoric rise to fame.

Kai and Culture

Food stories from Aotearoa By Freerange Press – Edited by Emma Johnson Food tells a story. A story about where it originated, who produced it, the producer’s values and its journey from ground to plate. We all share in the experience of food; it connects a diversity of people, places and ideas. Featuring: Fleur Sullivan, Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Rachel Taulelei, Monique Fiso, Jonny Schwass, Alex Davies, Giulio Sturla, Henry Hargreaves and many more. In this beautiful new release from Freerange Press, complete with full colour photos and fresh design, chefs, writers, academics and producers come together to cook up essays, profiles and recipes that explore Aotearoa’s contemporary food culture and an emerging, evolving New Zealand food identity. From mahinga kai and vegetable self-sufficiency to whole-animal sensibility, Kai and culture is a catalyst for the discussion around the impact food has on our culture.
