Lyttelton Museum Update Most of the Museum's collection is now in secure storage at the Recovery Centre, Airforce Museum of New Zealand, Wigram. The Recovery Centre now has a museum intern, Moya Sheriff, who coordinates access to the collections, and can be available on request to assist with various pieces of work. Moya’s contact details are: recovery@airforcemuseum.co.nz or direct dial 03 343 9522. Recently, Moya worked with other Lyttelton Museum members to complete the collection triage, assessing all of the objects in the collection for earthquake damage. Just over 7000 objects were checked for damage, and the findings were that 10% of the collection has sustained damage, of which only 5% is physical damage, and 5% is brick dust and other abrasive earthquake debris (which will require careful cleaning). These results will now be forwarded to the insurers to assist with resolving our claim. This is a far better than expected outcome given the severity of the quake in Lyttelton. Grateful thanks to those members who volunteered their time to help with this project. As part of the triage, Conservator Sasha Stollman has removed most of the minor mould that had built up on a small number of items exposed to damp conditions since the earthquake. The remaining items required more comprehensive treatment, and Sasha has completed this work using the Airforce Museum’s fume hood to ensure the mould spores were safely extracted.

The Lyttelton Times The newspaper volumes (stored in the basement of the Lyttelton Library since the earthquake) were fumigated for insects, before being moved to shelving at the Recovery Centre. Tony Airs and Lizzie Meek, along with Darren, Simon, Moya, Matt and Michelle from the Airforce Museum, completed the move of 209 volumes in one day. There will be an ongoing project to assist with cleaning and wrapping these volumes – when this has been organised, a call will go out to any members interested in volunteering to assist with this: some training will be given.

The Milk Shed The Milk shed remains very much in a crushed state. There has been no progress on excavating the slip or the building, and it is not possible at the moment to retrieve anything from what remains of the shed. We understand that there were few collection items inside, with the Post-office clock mechanism being the main item of any value. We will keep you updated on any progress.

Distributed Displays Grant The Collections Committee has begun work on the Distributed Displays project, for which the Museum received a council grant in July 2013. A series of small display projects are in the pipeline, with the first being the production of an historic timeline. Kerry and Lizzie have been meeting with designers, and the collections committee will select a designer in early October. Meanwhile the Museum is working with the Grubb Cottage Committee on the possibility of installing the timeline along the fence line of Grubb Cottage.

Donation from Henry Trading Following on from the historic slideshow the Museum organised for the Festival of Lights, the Museum partnered with Maree Henry of Henry Trading, to show the same slide show during a one-off "late night shopping and history” event on August 30. At this event, Maree raffled a number of items, raising a total of $240 which has been donated to the Museum. Our thanks to Maree for her generous support, and to Baden Norris for offering his time to sit and spin historical yarns throughout the slide show.

Grubb Cottage Volunteers Needed Grubb Cottage, at 62 London Street Lyttelton, has recently re-opened after a long closure post-earthquake. The Grubb Cottage committee is looking for volunteers to help open the cottage to the public for a couple of hours each Saturday and Sunday, and hopes that Lyttelton Museum Society members will offer their time as they used to for the Museum. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Michael from the Grubb Cottage Committee on 328 8043.

Next Open Meeting The next open meeting of the Lyttelton Museum Historical Society will be on Saturday 28th September, 10.00am at Lyttelton Main School Hall. We'll send out an agenda prior to the meeting. We hope to see you there. Article: Lyttelton Museum Historical Society, with thanks

Well, We’ve Been Training What About You? Each month all the Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour and Lyttelton Civil Defence teams meet and go through various scenarios so that they are better prepared for if they are called to action. The training helps these volunteers fine tune procedures, learn new things and think about how emergency responses can improve. Much of it is about team building. In Lyttelton there is quite a tight, but small team. Last Friday they all headed over to Little River and practiced opening a Welfare Centre with the teams from Little River and Akaroa. It was a great learning experience and at the end of the exercise everyone was really happy that the teams all gelled together and learned from each other. Your local Civil Defence teams have also been involved helping to create a Community Emergency Plan for the area. Whilst the plan isn't finished it's an opportunity for Civil Defence, community groups, business and emergency services to touch base with each other and think about what they can offer and how they can work together if needed. It's all about relationship building. Once again if we all know each other and we know what to expect from everyone, when we need to work together the task is so much easier. So the message is that the same applies to everyone at home. In case of an emergency situation, it helps greatly if you know your neighbours and at least have some sort of emergency plan pre organised. This is a reminder to just reflect on what you do or don't have. To help you, Civil Defence issues a standard Household Emergency Plan, which is included in this copy of the Lyttelton Harbour Review. Just take a minute or two to read it and make sure you are on track. If you need some help, feel free to drop into the Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre on Oxford Street, or contact Wendy Everingham on 03 328 9093. Article: Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre

Cakes for Greatness Sharing the Love As always in Lyttelton, residents come up with great ideas. The idea for Cakes for Greatness comes from Rushani Gunatunga. Some of you may know Rushani from the Lyttelton Farmers Market. Every second week she and her partner have the most wonderful cake stall at the Market. Rushani’s idea was on her “off week” from the market she would make a special cake and gift that to a special community group, local business or group of fine people who work hard for the betterment of the Lyttelton Harbour community. As a member of the Lyttelton TimeBank, Rushani posted her idea in the weekly TimeBank broadcast, and word also spread through the social network on Facebook. Rushani asked for readers to nominate special people, groups or businesses who deserve special recognition and a well deserved treat with their morning cuppa. Rushani would then bake a cake, and select the recipient from the nominations received presenting them with a Cake for Greatness for their morning tea on Thursday. Nominations flooded in for businesses and individuals including the volunteer firemen, Stark Bros, the Lyttelton Heath Centre and the Lyttelton Library to name but a few. There were so many nominations in fact that Rushani says “it looks like the 'Cake for Greatness' will be staying in Lyttelton for good! There are just so many amazing people, businesses and groups who deserve cake for their awesomeness”. This week, the lucky recipient of the first Cake for Greatness was gifted to Lyttelton volunteer and TimeBank Co-Ordinator Wendy Everingham for her contribution to Project Lyttelton, the Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre, and Lyttelton Civil Defence. Rushani baked and then gift presented an exquisite rhubarb, violet and yoghurt crumble cake filled with rhubarb cream, which was shared with visitors to the Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre for morning and afternoon tea. Both surprised and delighted, Wendy commented “Rushani, this is such a brilliant and simple idea that has created much conversation, laughter and love today. Thank you from the Information Centre and TimeBank teams.” If you would like to nominate a local group of people, business or individual who deserves special recognition and a well deserved treat with their morning cuppa, send your nominations to Rushani at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushanis/222728904531644 and try to give some specific examples of community kindness/greatness/awesomeness, where possible.

Let’s Open Lyttelton Pool Let's not be complacent! Organisers of the “Let’s Open Lyttelton Pool” group have learned that the Council's decision on rebuilding or repairing Lyttelton’s Norman Kirk Swimming Pool has not been made yet. It was not discussed at the 12 September meeting as planned and now will likely be decided at the Thursday, 3 October Council meeting (the last before the local body elections).

Council recently decided against a committee recommendation to fund the repair of community facilities in Sumner - so it can not be assumed that the repair of the Lyttelton pool is a done deal. If you would like to see the Lyttelton Swimming Pool opened, with priority, write to your councillor! Call the mayor! Vent your watery fervour! Better yet, let's get some kind of response organised for the 12 Oct Council meeting - let's turn up in our togs! Email your thoughts to the current Councillors:

bob.parker@ccc.govt.nz claudia.reid@ccc.govt.nz peter.beck@ccc.govt.nz glenn.livingstone@ccc.govt.nz sally.buck@ccc.govt.nz jamie.gough@ccc.govt.nz tim.carter@ccc.govt.nz yani.johanson@gmail.com helen.broughton@ccc.govt.nz jimmy.chen@ccc.govt.nz ngaire.button@ccc.govt.nz aaronkkeown@hotmail.com barry.corbett@ccc.govt.nz sue.wells@ccc.govt.nz

Now's the time when we need to take some constructive action and give the Council no doubt about how important the pool is. Stay tuned for further details. And please spread the word. www.facebook.com/pages/Lets-Open-Lyttelton-Pool/337107132997936

Whooping Cough Outbreak in Lyttelton A local resident has informed us that there is a Whooping Cough outbreak at the Lyttelton West School—to quote “lots of barking kids”.

power of the smile A smile costs nothing, but gives much- It takes but a moment, but the memory of it usually lasts forever. None are so rich that can get along without it, and none are so poor but that can be made rich by it. It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give -It creates sunshine in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value unless it is given away. Some people are too busy to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as goodness knows that no one needs a smile so badly as he or she who has no more smiles left to give. - Anon

Diamond Harbour Writers Group September Author: Patricia Shannon

If Only He never expected that he'd look in the mirror one day and find that his eyes were dull. That the twinkle within had gone and the beautiful blue colour of his iris had faded. He had so many wrinkles in his face that he could no longer count them. His hair had gone completely grey. The years had taken its toll. Whey didn't he see that before? He had no idea. He looked around the room. He had never felt so alone. He rested his head on his hands and sighed. He had to get a hold of himself. Especially on this particular evening. There was no time to waste. Whatever he felt personally was of no importance right now. He made a commitment. A commitment for life. It started at the age of fifteen. It was his calling, his life's path. There was no turning back. It was too late. He never got married. There were no children. No brothers or sisters to comfort him. It was his destiny. Slowly he stood up from his brown leather chair. He walked to the clothes rack in the corner. It had to be special. He chose a velvet black pantalon and an off-white coloured shirt with frills up the front. To top it all, a bright red overcoat with shiny black pearls around the edges. He reminisced about the good old days while he got dressed. A loud knock on the door brought him back to the world around him. “Cabellio!” The stage manager shouted. “Five more minutes to go!” Quickly and routinely he brought on make up to cover his blemishes. He resisted the temptation to gaze at his imperfections again. Then it was time to go on. People were waiting in anticipation. He gracefully accepted the loud applause that he received, the minute the curtains opened up in front of him. He spoke with confidence. He managed to smile. One joke followed the other. Society, politics. Every subject was available to Cabellio. Fifty years of history! The audience laughed, the audience clapped. Their problems faded away. Near the end of his performance, ten minutes before the curtains fell, Cabellio felt the pain. The theatre seemed to sway. The public turned blurry. Dizziness overcame the great comedian. He collapsed. He took his last breath on his beloved podium. Years later he was still remembered as the great Cabellio. The man who brought mirth to thousands of people around the world. If only he knew how his life and legacy would go on forever, then he would not have felt so alone that night.

The End.

plenty to share In Lyttelton so many residents grow vegetables; or have fruit trees literally dripping with produce. Plenty to Share is about sharing any excess produce with the community. So if your lemon tree is yellow with goodness and you can’t keep up with making lemon curd, bring those surplus fruits down to the organisers, where every Saturday the swapping of produce is well underway in Lyttelton on the corner of London and Canterbury Street; and also in Diamond Harbour on a Saturday morning at the village centre. If there is something on the Plenty to Share table that you would like to take home, then you are warmly invited to do so.

For more details please contact John Riminton 03 329 4329 to enquire further.

Parcel Collection Idea Do you find it difficult getting your parcels home form the Farmers Market? Can't park close enough, too far back to the car? The Lyttelton Information Centre and the Lyttelton Farmers Market are going to trial working together to solve this problem. Our idea is you shop at the farmers market and then bring your purchases to the Information Centre. We'll happily store your goods until you return later in the afternoon to collect them. We have a drop car park out the front so it will be easy for you to return and collect your things prior to 4pm. Goods stored will be your responsibility and we can't offer any refrigeration but it should be perfect for items that don't need refrigeration and many of those items are often heavy.

Christchurch Retaining Walls Group A website has been set up as a point of contact for people in Christchurch who are having issues with retaining walls. If you would like to join the group, you can visit their web site and complete an online contact form. The only criteria for joining the group, is that you have a retaining wall of any type protecting your property, or which is your responsibility. The purpose of our group is to share information regarding EQC retaining wall settlements. Under the Earthquake Commission Act 1993 EQC are obliged to pay 'indemnity value' for retaining walls, however the Act does not define 'indemnity value' and there are several methods of calculating this - the difference between the methods can be material. For more information read some of the stories on the website. And if you know how EQC are calculating Indemnity Value, please get in touch! www.retainingwalls.kiwi.nz

LIFT Library This week I am mostly on about money. As there is so much news these days about the rich getting richer (especially with our government’s assistance) and the poor getting poorer, I think the timing is appropriate. A new book I have bought a copy of a recently published book that looks very useful. I’m trying to find time to write a full review of it for our supporter, Living Economies, but in the meantime here’s a quick introduction: Local Money: what difference does it make? John Rogers John Rogers is one of the co-authors of an excellent book we already hold “People Money”. If you are interested in the rising trend worldwide of implementing various ways of providing alternatives to our very faulty and exploitative money system, but can’t face a big book, this is the one for you – only 60 pages and in language even I can follow! Here’s a quick outline of the contents: Local Money in Action; National Money – what it can and cannot do; Can we reform money?; Local Money – what it can and cannot do (with several strong examples); Talking to the Naysayers; What can I do?; Further resources, including Youtube and website links. If you read it and would like more detailed information, you can borrow our “People Money”. Or you can go to Living Economies website book shop and buy it: www.le.org.nz If you would like more information on our money system and its issues, but would rather watch a film than read a book, try this one, which has been strongly recommended to me: “Money & Life”: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/money-life/ I haven’t seen it yet, so would like some feedback. If I can find a way to download it, I may show it some time later in a LIFT film evening – though I have a lot of good ones lined up already. There’s not much demand yet for more frequent film evenings but I’m still considering it. And today’s quote: When your outgoings exceed your income your upkeep may be your downfall. To become a member of the LIFT Library, based right here in Lyttelton, contact Juliet Adams on 03 328 8139 or mobile 021 899 404, for more information.
