FRIENDS FOR LIFE: Surf lifesavers Andrew Priest and Glenn Fergus, with paraglider Patterson Stark, who they rescued after he crashlanded into the sea off Taylors Mistake.

Seagulls flock to Nancy – p6, p7

Rescue prompts donation BY ANDREW KING Patterson Stark can’t thank the Sumner Surf Life Saving Club enough. Two of the club’s lifesavers had to pull Mr Stark, an American doctor based in Ferrymead, out of the water after he crash-landed while paragliding. He was grateful for the help, and has since made a donation

to the club. Mr Stark has been paragliding for 20 years and not once had to put his extensive knowledge of emergency landing into practice. “It is my first ever accident. I turned back and lost height as I got past the cliff heading into Taylors Mistake. “I have flown that site over 500 times.”

The two lifesaverss, Andrew Priest and  Glenn Fergus, were enjoying a morning coffee at Taylors Mistake recently when they saw Mr Stark in trouble. “I saw a paraglider scooting pretty close to the rocks by Moki Point,” Mr Priest said. Both men took off down to the beach to see what they could do – Mr Priest started swimming to

the stricken man, while Mr Fergus grabbed a canoe that was at a nearby bach. Mr Stark said he hit the water with no real problems but then had to try get himself and his gear back to shore. “I was prepared for water landing and it was pretty uneventful,” he said. •Turn to page 2

BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

McCormacks Bay Reserve will have a $15,000 spruce-up. Environment Canterbury has given the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust the money as Seeof its biodiversity strategy. part Inside: Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said it would be spent on planting, pruning and equipment. “We know exactly how we’re going to spend it.” About $9000 is going to be spent on trees and planting, $4000 will be spent on an aborist cleaning up the larger trees, and $2000 on health and safety equipment, she said. She said the money allowed 384 0600

there to be a “massive” amount of planting, and those seedlings would be grown by Trees for Canterbury. Often nursery plants are brought up with fresh water, and are not suitable for salt water, she said. These ones will be grown with salt water to be acclimatised to the environment they will be planted in. About two thirds will be mudflat planting, and the remainder will be riparian planting. An aborist will come and prune the larger trees and branches that obstruct the walkways, she said. That is hoped to be started this month.

RESTORE: Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust volunteers doing some previous planting in the mudflats at McCormacks Bay. The health and safety equipment such as gloves, shears and pruners will be used

by the volunteers. “Now we can get really stuck into it.”

“Then it was a matter of having a 28 sq m anchor attached to me. “I was about to try swimming back with all the gear but then Andrew and Glenn turned up.” Mr Stark had been in the 9 deg C water for about 10min before he was reached by his rescuers and was still attached to his harness with dozens of strands from his parachute wrapped around his lower legs and ankles. “When I got to him I made sure there were no injuries,” Mr Priest said. “He was really calm and told me that he was a lifeguard from back in the States.” They spent about 15-20min in the water, and when they got back on the

A new strain of influenza has had a mixed effect at Mount Pleasant and Heathcote Valley schools. Heathcote Valley reported a massive increase in absentees, while Mt Pleasant school were only missing around five or six students due to the flu. Heathcote Valley deputy principal, Bruce Ellison said there was a huge difference from last year, in relation to pupils away because of influenza. “There’s been an increased number of absentees over the holidays. Our roll is close to 300, and I’m not too sure how many were away sick, but it’s a significant number.” Mt Pleasant’s office manager, Carolyn Wright said: “There’s been a small amount of sickness in relation to the flu, but not a significant amount. “Some families get hit quite hard, but there has probably only been two or three families in the last few weeks. So five or six from (a roll of) 360 isn’t too bad.”

beach it was all about getting Mr Stark warm and monitoring him for signs of shock. Both Mr Priest and Mr Fergus were relieved that they were both at the scene, as undertaking the rescue singlehandedly would have been much more demanding. “It was good that we were both there as it would have been quite difficult to pull off on your own,” Mr Priest said. They even managed to save all the gear and Mr Stark said he has been back up paragliding since the accident. “I cleaned my gear up but got back to it pretty much straight away. “I am going to continue to support the surf lifesaving club in the future,” Mr Stark said.

Native plant thrives in estuary BY TOM DOUDNEY The earthquakes that tilted the Avon Heathcote Estuary created plenty of disturbance for plant life but at least one tenacious little native has used the situation as an opportunity. A study by Canterbury University masters student Emma Hunt found that a small plant called Sarcocornia quinqueflora, or glasswort, which thrives in salty marshy areas had expanded its range since the earthquakes. The southern end of the estuary rose by about 500mm after the February 2011 earthquake, while the northern end was lowered by a similar amount. The change in ground level led to a decline in the health of some trees after their roots became waterlogged. Ms Hunt said she studied glasswort because its opportunist nature and role as an early succession species in colonising new ground after disturbance meant it would be one of the first plants to show changes in distribution. “We found that it changed particularly at Bridge St. There was a huge expansion [in glasswort] there because there was so much subsidence – the land dropped by 43cm,” she said. “Overall, in the entire estuary because of the earthquake’s disturbance it actually managed to increase and become healthier overall because there was less competition from other species because they weren’t able to take

Supermarket to open in October

Redcliffs New World will open in late October. South Island property and retail development general manager for Foodstuffs, Roger Davidson said that the three-storey New World will be 40 per cent larger than its predecessor. Redcliffs Residents Association president, Fletcher Stanton is “chomping at the bit” in anticipation for the opening of the supermarket. “A supermarket is a hub of the community, neighbours can meet and have a chat; school kids see their friends . . . it’ll be really good to have it all tidied up, especially with all the road cones out of the way, businesses will be back to normal.” The supermarket was badly damaged in the February 2011 earthquake.

Road works

ON THE RISE: Charlesworth Reserve is one of several areas where the glasswort plant was found to be expanding its range, biomass and soil sampling results have shown. advantage of the situation so much.” Bridge St was one of four sites studied with other three being Settlers Reserve in Ferrymead, Charlesworth Reserve in Bromley and the Southshore Spit Walk. Of the study sites, Settlers Reserve was the only area where the plant was in decline. Ms Hunt said the success of glasswort could indicate that there would be further changes in other species in the future as well. “But it might take a while to show those changes.”

Other studies had shown glasswort helping prepare an area for other plants to establish themselves as well. Ms Hunt said it was a matter of opinion as to whether the expansion of glasswort was for the better or not but “it could be a good thing because it’s a native.” Another study by Canterbury University PHD student Ani Kainamu focused on the health of shellfish in the estuary. Her supervisor, associate professor Islay Marsden, said Ms Kainamu’s research had found

that cockles growing in the estuary were bigger and healthier the further away they were from freshwater sources such as the Avon and Heathcote rivers. Cockles also had higher levels of E. Coli in winter than in summer. Avon Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said the lesson she took from the expansion of glasswort was just to let nature “do it’s thing.” “It all adjusts quite well. Things will change but it doesn’t mean it’s for the worse – it’s just change.”

Part of the Esplanade, Sumner, will be closed while Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team works to repair stormwater pipes at its intersection with Stoke St. A detour is in place via Hardwicke, Nayland and Stoke Sts. Work began on Friday and is expected to take about three weeks. The footpath on the sea side will be closed at times as the work is completed. Meanwhile, work along Dyers Pass Rd, Governors Bay, to repair the retaining walls and resurface parts of the road is almost complete. The next stage, which is repairing the concrete stormwater channel on the northbound side of the road, has begun. It is expected to be finished by the end of this month.

Stink over wheelie bins

Wednesday July 29 2015

Keeping the heart of Sumner resident Tim Gilkison doesn’t have the public profile of Todd Blackadder or Scott Robertson, but he is one of the most important figures in Canterbury rugby. He manages all grades from seniors down to under-6s. Andrew King speaks with him

BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Ratepayers are forking out money for a private contractor to pick up rubbish that city council trucks could be doing themselves.

Councillor Yani Johanson says he can’t understand why public money is being spent this way when the city council has the ability to do the job itself. Wheelie bins from the red zone had been put on the former Sumner Community Centre site, which is now being used as a village green to keep it clean. But because the village green is zero-rated land, city council contractors were unable to continue picking up the rubbish, and the bins were removed. It is now paying, through Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board’s discretionary response fund, a private contractor to pick up waste from that site. Sumner Residents Association community development co-ordinator Marnie Kent said the bins were removed in about May, and replacements were not put there until early July. “We had to manage the rubbish that was being left behind with no bins there.” She said the land is council owned, but it is managed by the community, so it was decided to put red zoned wheelie bins to good use. But the city council told them it was not allowed, and they were removed without warning, she said. The residents association was told it could apply for a grant to pay for a commercial contractor to collect rubbish from new bins. City council community governance and support unit manager Jenny Hughey said because the site is undeveloped and no rates were being paid, there was no mechanism in place for bin service. She would not say what the cost of paying a private contractor was, but said it was standard commercial charges. Cr Johanson said the cost the city council spends on investigating and trying to get a resolution outweighed the cost of just enabling the wheelie bins to continue to be used.

Hi Tim, tell us a bit about what you do day to day, what is the job? I am the general manager of community rugby so that means I look after everything from under-6s right through to senior rugby. There is about 14,500 players, 1500 coaches and a couple of hundred referees. We work with three regions: Ellesmere, North Canterbury and Metropolitan. I deal with a lot at the regional level and also help out with coach and referee education. Why did you get into rugby management? Got involved initially contracting through Canterbury Rugby Football Union. From there I was involved in club planning projects and then the role came up and I jumped in and the rest is history. Are you from Christchurch? I was born in Dunedin but moved away quite young. I lived in Auckland until I was 15, then moved down to Lower Hutt. I came to Canterbury not long after that and now I have spent more years down here than anywhere. Did you play rugby? I did play rugby. From under-5s right through post-school. I started with the College Rifles in Auckland. I played all my school rugby in Auckland with Grammar then Hutt Valley High after the age of 15. What position did you play?

Canterbury rugby running I was mainly a tight head prop. Once I got a bit taller I played a bit of lock but I played prop most of the time. Did you ever dream of becoming an All Black? Yeah, like most kids. You try to aspire to that. Starts getting a bit narrow at the top though. Who is your team? I am definitely a red and black man so it’s Canterbury all the way. I’ve have supported them for many, many years. Do you enjoy working with the CRFU? Absolutely, wouldn’t be here if I didn’t. It is great to work with sport. I deal with a wide variety of people and there are so many interesting aspects to the role. What do you enjoy about it? The satisfaction of knowing we are providing a lot of rugby to lots of people. We are one of New Zealand’s proudest rugby provinces. As a region, we punch well above our weight when it comes to the number of All Blacks produced and those sort of things. We are one of the leading provinces in rugby. How do you see progression through the grassroots to top level? It’s up to us to have a strong community game. We have to provide a level of competition that allows those in the lower levels to kick on and play professional rugby. We do that through good player development, good coaching, and good officiating. If we can get all those aspects

BUSY: There are about 14,500 rugby players in the city which Gilkison oversees. PHOTO: KYLE KNOWLES right, then it will naturally lead to talent coming through. Keeping the engine room running is our job to make sure we can allow those players to progress to higher levels. What is it about community rugby that you think keeps people coming back week in week out? People get involved for one reason. Enjoyment. It’s a level of camaraderie, the nature of the game and people enjoy the contact aspect. There is so much you can do with the game. The challenges are great and rewarding when overcome. And the game is fun that naturally attracts people to it and stay in it. How is the state of the game, sideline behaviour?

The overall comment is that we are in reasonably good heart, we are growing the game. We lost player numbers during the earthquakes but it has bounced back. The sideline is challenging, we are working hard in this area. All sports see bad behaviour at one point or another. We have some good programmes in place to change it but at the end of the day we are dealing with the public and some people just don’t know how to behave themselves. Kids are there for the fun and don’t enjoy the negativity on or off the field and ultimately that is what either makes it or breaks it for them. No one enjoys negativity around the game. What is your favourite rugby moment?

It’s an interesting one. It was when all the metro clubs got together after the February earthquake. Things were in complete disarray. But there was a collective determination to pick ourselves up and continue on. We decided the best thing we could do was keep going with the Saturday games. It was a true testament to the importance of the game. We saw how important it was to have some normality in life. They could just go out and play a game of footy in spite of the liquefaction all over the fields and other problems that we had to get around. We had a collective will to get on with it. Do you have a favourite player?

There is so many that could be a favourite, I don’t normally single one out. How about an all-time favourite player? I think Richie [Richie McCaw] is up there. He has contributed so much to the game, his longevity and leadership have been so great. When did you start watching rugby? I started watching when I was a kid around five-years-old, basically right from day one. The Lions tours were always special for me. What do you do outside of rugby? All of winter I’m at rugby so that takes up around half of the year. My activities involve walking around the Port Hills, which are basically in my backyard since I live in Sumner. I am a keen salmon fisherman and I try to get out around a variety of rivers in Canterbury, it is a pretty special part of the world and it is great to get out there and get amongst it. Now for the big question everyone wants to know, who is going to win the World Cup? I think the All Blacks with the quality they have in the side, they have to go in as favourites. It will be interesting to see how we go over the next few months. You can never write of sides like France or the Wallabies, but I think with the side we have and the coaching staff we have, we should get the job done.

ON A MISSION: Sumner’s Nancy Meherne puts on a red jacket and mounts her cycle to feed the seagulls on Sumner beach.

Nancy draws the crowds By Bridget Rutherford THERE IS only one person the seagulls of Sumner wait for twice a day – an elderly woman in a red jacket. Nancy Meherne will turn 86 next month, but that does not stop her from jumping on a cycle twice a day, and riding to Sumner beach, from her Head St home, armed with food scraps. The scraps are for more than 100 hungry seagulls which have grown quite fond of her. “I guess some people call me the seagull lady.” Since the earthquakes, Nancy has noticed fewer shells on the beach, and she suspects liquefaction might have

something to do with it. Before the quakes, she used to walk along the beach and spot about 26 different varieties of shells, but now there are very few, and the seagulls are hungry. They used to eat the shellfish, she said. “The seagulls just don’t know what to do.” So she began feeding them this year. Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said she had heard a number of people say there were fewer shellfish on the beaches since the quakes. But she had not done any research into it, and could not

comment on why that was the case. Nancy is well known in Sumner, and first moved there in 1956 with her husband on their wedding day. Many may have seen her riding the waves on her boogie board at the beach. Her time has been dedicated to teaching children music, and even has a classroom at Sumner School named after her. She still teaches music in the morning and afternoons, and has to tie that in with feeding the seagulls, and the ducks – but that is another story. Feeding time takes place between 9-9.30am and 2.303pm everyday on the grass verge near the clocktower.

FAMILIAR: Nancy’s jacket attracts the seagulls.

like a flock of seagulls She collects the scraps three times a week, and takes them down to the beach twice a day, every day. Sometimes she also buys potatoes, rolled oats and bread if there are not enough scraps. But there is a downside – she has to choose her outfit carefully. She throws on her red jacket when she goes to feed the seagulls – and they can see her coming. But going to the village can be problematic. “If I’m biking to the village I wear black or a dull colour so they don’t try and follow me in.” And a delicate question for Nancy, does she get dropped on from above? “Once one got me, but they seem to want to miss. I think they know better.’’ FEATHERED FRIENDS: Nancy reaches her destination followed by hundreds of birds.

From Lyttelton to Project Runway BY DAVID LOUGHREY

A budding fashion designer from Lyttelton will soon be showing his work to millions of viewers, after nailing a spot on American reality television show Project Runway. Duncan Chambers-Watson, who graduated with a bachelor of design fashion with distinction from Otago University last year, will be a contestant in season 14 of the show. Chambers-Watson (right) is the second New Zealander to feature on the show, after Sean Kelly won season 13 last year. The show features Tim Gunn as mentor, and judges include model and TV personality Heidi Klum. Chambers-Watson left for the United States early this month for filming.

Otago Polytechnic academic leader of fashion Dr Margo Barton said Mr Chambers-Watson stood out. “Oh yes. He knows who he is as a designer, and he’s got his own style, confidence, and he’s a very, very hard worker.’’ That was “the essential mix’’ for a fashion designer. Dr Barton said Chambers-Watson, at first, was not sure about chasing a spot on Project Runway, and asked her advice. She told him the show was “like a very public portfolio airing’’, and just being selected, and having the opportunity to show so many people what he could

Chambers-Watson had already gained a scholarship to attend Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, and participated in Shanghai Fashion Week last year through the polytechnic’s partnership with the Shanghai University of Engineering Science. He was also recently invited to submit his portfolio for consideration by Vogue Italia New Talents. His graduation collection featured at this year’s iD Dunedin fashion show.

he had designer potential with the response: “Hopefully some day soon.’’ Dr Barton said he seemed “older and wiser than his 25 years’’. “But that’s his sense of humour, definitely.’’ Chambers-Watson did a foundation course at the Fashion Design Studio in Sydney.

Māori Language Week celebrates 40 years BY FRASER WALKERPEARCE

THe 40th anniversary of Māori Language Week started on Monday. This year’s theme is “Whāngaihia te reo Māori ki ngā mātua”; which means nurture the language in parents so that it may grow. This backs up the original ideal of “Arohatia te Reo”, meaning cherish the language. Celebrations will take place in Christchurch during the week, including the city council’s waiata group performing at libraries throughout the city. SuperValue and Fresh Choice supermarkets are also celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori by running week-long, in-store colouring competition and events until August 2. Manager of Wairakei Rd SuperValue, Gurpreet Singh said: “We will be putting up colouring posters, also the Maori names for fruit and vege in the produce section, which keeps it interesting for the kids, (and) gets them learning. We’ll set up tables for colouring, and offer to take pictures and put it online, so they go in the draw for the competition.”

Statue planned to celebrate South Pole, Lyttelton link BY FRASER WALKERPEARCE Lyttelton may get a life-sized bronze sled dog statue to celebrate its 125-year link with Antarctica. The New Zealand Antarctic Society Canterbury branch is funding the $32,000 installation of the statue, nicknamed Hector, which it hopes will bring more attention to the significance of Lyttelton’s contribution to studies on the frozen continent. Canterbury branch spokeswoman Dr Margaret Bradshaw said: “I’ll be very happy when that last meeting happens and it gets the stamp of approval. Lyttelton needs something to make the connection. It started all those years ago with Scott and Shackleton, but there is still a huge amount of travel to Antarctica from Lyttelton.” The Canterbury branch is now awaiting confirmation from the city council. Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board chairwoman Paula Smith was excited about the potential link for the community. “I think everyone in Lyttelton agrees that it’s a great way to celebrate the connection between Antarctica and Lyttelton. It’s not just the early heroics stage either, other places celebrate it too, like the Oxford St bridge was done in celebration of ‘Operation Deep-

SUCCESS: The Governors Bay Community Transport Trust takes about 500 passengers a month around Christchurch.

Transport trust reaches first anniversary BY FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Governors Bay Community Transport Trust will be celebrating its one-year anniversary at the Governors Bay Hotel on August 6, at 7pm. The trust supplies public transport to around 500 passengers every month, and acts as a work commute, also taking passengers to Barrington, the Lyttelton markets on a Saturday or it can be hired out for personal use. Trust chairwoman Jenny Swaffield said: “The meeting will be to advise the community where we are at, and we are always encouraging members of the public to become volunteers and become users of the trust.” The trust has a nine-seater Nissan Caravan and a five-seater Toyota Runx, which is funded by Environment Canterbury, so long as the 30 current drivers are volunteers.

Only two of them made it out, after Scott and his men were caught in a blizzard and died from hypothermia on their race to be first the South Pole. Amundsen is celebrated as being the first man to reach the South Pole, when he and his Norwegian team reached the southern-most point in the world

Roots back in line for top culinary titles BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Two Lyttelton restaurants have been named finalists in this year’s Christchurch Hospitality Awards. Roots Restaurant will hope to continue its winning streak after it won another culinary award last month while Civil and Naval owner Louis Dyer will go up for bartender of the year. Roots, which is located on London St, is a finalist for restaurant of the year, and regional establishment of the year in the awards. In the restaurant category it will go up against Riccarton’s Dux Dine and Orleans which is in Stranges Lane. It will compete against Black Estate and Pegasus Bay Winery, which are both based in Waipara, in the regional establishment of the year category. Last month, Roots was crowned the country’s best and named Cuisine’s Restaurant of the Year at the Cuisine NZ Good Food Awards. It also took out the Ōra King Salmon Innovation Award, for its pioneering approach to produce and sustainability. The small restaurant’s set menus focus on showcasing local ingredients. Civil and Naval, which is also based on London St, is a finalist in the bartender of the year award. Mr Dyer is up against bartenders from Strange & Co. and The

WINNING STREAK?: Roots Restaurant co-owners Christy Martin and Giulio Sturla. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN Dirty Land. The 23-year-old said Civil and Naval was a finalist for bar of the year last year, and was not expecting to be a finalist for bartender of the year. The restaurant does not have a cocktail list, and bartenders made personalised cocktails for patrons by asking them what they usually liked, he said. He did not consider himself a good bartender in spite of being a finalist, but said the trick was to

have a good relationship with patrons. “It’s about keeping the relationship, having a passion to hang out with your guests and making sure each one is having a good night.” He said Lyttelton had been really well represented in the Cuisine NZ Good Food Awards, and again in these ones. The winners of each category will be announced on August 9 at a ceremony held at the Hagley Cricket Pavilion.

Futsal player scores golden boot award By Fraser Walker-Pearce Mt Pleasant’s Britneylee Nicholson won the golden boot award at the National Youth Futsal Championships in Wellington during the school holidays. She scored 14 goals in six games, securing Canterbury’s under-15 Mainland futsal side the national youth title for 2015. She believes she could be in line for a call-up to trial for the New Zealand futsal women’s squad later in the year. “Yeah, definitely I think I could, and I’d like to . . . hopefully I can play for New Zealand one day,” Britneylee said. She has come within a goal of winning a golden boot award before, while playing for her school, but never won it before now. “I came close for STAC (St Andrew’s College) in the national secondary schools tournament which we won; yeah, I missed out by one goal in that tournament – I was a bit gutted.” Mainland beat Auckland 4-2 in the final, after seeing off stern

competition from other teams like Hawke’s Bay, Waikato/Bay of Plenty and tying with Wellington in group play. At 15-years-old, the St Andrew’s year 11 student has shown her potential to get all the way to the top. Britneylee said: “Futsal is still growing in New Zealand, so hopefully it will keep growing and it can become a professional sport for girls to play as well as boys.” As well as being a talented futsal player, she also excels at outdoor football, winning the women’s premier league last on July 18. “I’m playing for Coastal Spirit, for their premier team, which is awesome. I really love it.” Other Canterbury sides also had a successful week at the national youth championships with the under-14 and under-16 boys both winning their competitions. The under-14 boys thrashed Capital 8-2 and the under16s beat Waikato 3-0 in their respective finals.

Woolston

Community Preschool Centre Manager Rachelle Laugesen has been with the Woolston Community Preschool since it opened 25 years ago and is the driving force behind the centre’s current fundraising to facilitate the building of a new deck and pergola.

T

he preschool’s home for the past 17 years is a former Council Depot on Glenroy St in Woolston. Following the February 2011 earthquakes, the Woolston Community Preschool experienced an influx of students as a result of the closure of many neighbouring community preschools. Laugesen said their role grew by 25 per cent after the earthquakes, with students coming from as far afield as New Brighton, Haslwell and Burwood. This has placed pressure on the preschool’s available space and infrastructure. The preschool’s plans for a new deck and pergola will provide much needed additional space, offering a warm, dry area for the winter months, with shelter and shade for summer. Laugesen anticipates that the project will cost approximately $15,000 and has turned to fundraising activities to raise the

necessary funds. No stranger to fundraising, Laugesen says the centre relies on regular, low-key fundraising activities to fund teaching resources and equipment, but the latest project is a bigger goal than usual. The centre is eager to commence work as soon as possible and have a team of skilled and enthusiastic dads ready to undertake construction. When The Tannery was made aware of the preschool’s endeavours, they were keen to get on board and show their support. Being a locally-based, not for profit organisation, the Woolston Community Preschool met the criteria for The Tannery’s community engagement initiative, and the decision to support the Preschool was obvious. “The Tannery is strongly rooted in the local community. We believe in the importance of community and providing support to organisations and individuals within this

community base. The Woolston Community Preschool has provided a fantastic and much needed role within the Woolston Community for the past 25 years. We are delighted to be able to provide some financial assistance to help them to continue to grow, nurture and educate our communities’ children,” states marketing manager Ali Cassels.

Learn how your body works at new weight-loss course

W

ith so many different diets constantly being promoted and seemingly contradictory information coming out about what foods are healthy and what ones are not, it is easy to get confused. To eliminate that confusion and help people who want to lose weight succeed, Simone Reddington and her team at herbal specialist store The Apothecary at The Tannery are introducing a new sixweek weight-loss course – Weight Loss 101. As Simone explains, the course is designed to educate people on how to eat in order to maintain a healthy weight and have plenty of energy, how the body responds to different foods, and the role of exercise in our lives. “It is really important to learn the stuff we should have learned at school about the body and about how different foods make us feel and respond at a cellular level, which then leads to better decision making – we go through literally everything you need to know about how to lose weight and keep it off – knowledge is power and we want people to have that knowledge.” A qualified Medical Herbalist, Simone says the content of the course is the culmination of what the herbalists have

learnt from studying nutrition, which they can pass on for the benefit of others. “It shouldn’t be that hard to eat properly. It’s just a matter of getting the message out there, so people can understand the body’s processes and then make good decisions for themselves. It’s about how to eat for life.” The six-week course is on Tuesday evenings, 5.30pm to 6.30pm, starting on July 21. Comprising six one-hour sessions, it will feature five sessions focusing on eating and diet and one on the importance of exercise. “We are having it at that time so people can come on their way home from work.

The Apothecary at the Tannery The sessions will be fun and very motivating and we will also provide a booklet with good information for them to take home,” Simone says. The cost of the course is $240, which is $40 per session with a $20 discount offered to those who bring a friend. Spaces are limited to 20 participants. Bookings can be made by calling into The Apothecary or online at the-apothecary.co.nz.

Enrolling now for 2016 Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Camp

Physics Trip The Linwood College Year 12 Physics group spent a scintillating day at the relocated ‘Rutherford Den’ performing modern Physics tasks in a controlled environment with several staff from the University of Canterbury. Feedback from the students was overwhelmingly positive and they all want to become particle physicists.

Congratulations to the students who completed a 65 km Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award Expedition in June on the hills of the Banks Peninsula. The Expedition was facilitated by the Joshua Foundation, who have worked with Linwood College for the past eight years.

First Place - Canterbury Vex Robotics Regionals 2015 Linwood College entered two teams into the Regionals this year and faced tough competition from other schools from the Canterbury region. Timaru Boys’ sent two teams up to compete and there were also four teams from Burnside, two from St Andrew’s, one from Boys’ High and one from Home School. After 17 rounds of qualifying matches, both Linwood teams were moved up to the semifinals.

Congratulations to Cole Barrie (left) and Programmer George Armstrong (2nd left) who were placed first for Linwood.

Decadent Dessert Nights

Top Basketball Player Shakani Tupuailei (Year 12) was selected to play for the East in an ‘All-Star East versus West’ game along with the best basketball players in Christchurch under the brilliant coach Pina Lissaman (Avonside Girls, St. Andrews College.) This game was a curtain raiser for the Canterbury Rams final home game at Cowles Stadium.

We have the XFactor! On 25 June we were fortunate enough to have NZ XFactor Finalist, Stevie Tonks perform at Linwood College. Accompanying him was Marley Nanai-Wilcox with the Moorhouse Dance Studio (also an XFactor contestant, with Nathan Phillips on vocals.) Stevie truly believes in the healing power of music and he wants us to do the same. His message to us all is, ‘Dare to dream, dare to change the World.’

The Dessert Nights held in our restaurant this term were equal to the city’s best. Year 13 students did the catering, while Year 12 students managed the front of house service. Guests had to book in early; so book now for the three course meal in September.

“AMAZING! Well done crew! Another really successful Dessert Evening! We had one of each plate at our table and the feedback was consistent… absolutely delicious!”

Students present ideas to Judges from the Business Community Jos van Olst and Niall Fanning (Year 13) present their business plan for their website design company, while Charlie Kavanagh, Jacob McHutchison, Jordan Bower, Gideon Smith and Rukshad Ali present their business plan for DomePhones, an import and distribution company. Angel Lintott, Rajnita Prakash and Molly Barnett (Year 12) have started a charity that collects money to supply bouquets of flowers which they deliver to the elderly in rest homes. A website www.fullbloomtrust.co.nz has been set up to collect donations, having teamed up with Aromaunga Baxters in Heathcote Valley.

Traditional smoking techniques ensure

unique flavour Woolston’s Holy Smoke Deli Smokehouse produces a range of smoked salmon products, using traditional techniques in an artisan smokehouse to give the salmon a unique and delicious flavour, says owner Henk Tabak.

“T

hat’s why our smoked salmon is different,” he says. “It’s all in the preparation, and it’s all about time and patience. It’s done in the old style way, just like traditional cheese makers take their time to do it well.” The Holy Smoke method of small batch smoking with simple manuka wood and salt ensures a moist product with infused flavour, Henk explains. “Using our custom-made small batch smokers from the United States, we are able to keep full control of both the temperature

A variety of products are made and they include cold, smoked, hand-sliced salmon; hot smoked or roasted salmon; hot smoked salmon sausages, all of which can be eaten warm or cold; and gravlax, which is a herbtopped, marinated, hand-sliced salmon.

Why we eat millions of Coupland’s Bakeries has won the Commercial/ Wholesale category at the Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards, so reporter Andrew Voerman thought, why not see how they do it?

EACH WEEK, about 100,000 pies leave the Coupland’s Bakeries site in Sockburn, heading out on trucks, to stores as far south as Invercargill and as far north as Tauranga, and eventually into the mouths of hungry New Zealanders. That means it produces more than five million of the things each year – mince, chicken, bacon and plenty else, soaked in gravy, then encased in a pastry containers, perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. On Tuesday night last week, the company took home first place in the Commercial/Wholesale category at the Bakel’s New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards, following on from a second and a third in the

first two years it entered. In that category, the nation’s high-volume bakers (those that produce more than 60,000 pies per week) are judged on the quality of their mince and cheese offering. So what then, does the company’s managing director, Karel Adriaens, think makes a good mince and cheese pie? “At the end of the day, the pie has to be hot. People don’t want to eat cold pies. The pastry obviously you want is flaky, you want it a little bit crispy, not too soft, not too dry – the flavour of the meat and the right amount of cheese and the right type of cheese is critical, to get the balance of those three together.” And head baker Phil Lyons? “To me, if you’ve got really good pastry, it just really complements everything else. That’s the fundamental foundation of a good pie, having that nice flaky pastry that’s crunchy in your mouth, but then dissolves away in your mouth, you can’t beat it – everyone loves pastry. “And when you’ve got wellseasoned, cooked meat and cheese – it’s unbeatable.” Producing somewhere in the range of 14,000 pies each day and keeping the quality high is a challenge, one that Lyons and his team meet by being rigorous. “The whole pie process, without going too much into the whole secret side of things, we really focus on the processes and the systems we put in place, and making sure

Coupland’s pies

VICTORIOUS: Coupland’s managing director Karel Adriaens with the Commercial/Wholesale category award. “Pies have to have a nice golden colour all over.” “Has the pie been baked to perfection?” “Does the pie have an attractive shine where permitted?” “Has the pie kept its tin shape when cooled?” “Is the pastry thickness just right, not too thick or too thin?” “Is the filling balanced evenly, meat to gravy, fruit filling to extender?” “Does the filling look appealing? “Note: Mushrooms are not a

vegetable.” “Are the pastry and filling flavours well balanced?” Lyons’ official title at Coupland’s is research and development manager, and while the recipe for the mince and cheese has remained roughly the same for the last 20 years or so, he has plenty of other products to tinker with. “We’re continuously trying new ideas and we’ve always got an eye out there. Obviously our reputation as Coupland’s Bakeries is one of the best in New Zealand, we think, and

we continuously try to aim for the trends and what’s happening in the market, and what our customers are really wanting.” Lyons joined Coupland’s only two months ago, and says the company’s success owes a lot to its team-oriented nature. “It’s hats off to the whole team here, it’s definitely a team effort, from Karel right on down through the whole team, it’s team-focused and we’re working on creating the final product and that’s why we think we’re very good at what we do.” Adriaens has been a judge of the awards for the last 15 years (though, should it need stating, not in the categories where his pies are entered) and says he has seen plenty of change in the industry in that time. “The pie industry in New Zealand has improved substantially. Bakels New Zealand, the instigators of the pie awards, they started that 19 years ago – I started judging 15 years ago, and in the earlier days, 95 per cent of the pies, you’d write off, there was only five per cent of them, we’d judge those were quality. “Today, it’s the other way around. It’s 95 per cent of the pies (that are great) – the quality and standard of the pies has improved significantly – and I actually credit the pie competition with achieving that objective, because everybody’s wanting to win it, so the standards have been created within the indusNEW LOCATION try as to what a good pie should look like.”

How do you produce 100,000 pies a week? Coupland’s Bakeries managing director Karel Adriaens explains “Putting a pie together, you have pastry and you have meat, which come together halfway through the process. “The pastry area is where the doughs are made – all the temperatures have to be absolutely spot-on, between 18 and 19 deg C, with the fats and the flours and the dough. “We then incorporate that into an extrusion line, which actually extrudes the dough out into sheets, it folds the fat, then rolls the fat, folds it, rolls it, folds it, rolls it, until it comes off the end of the line. “For the top pastry you have about 128 layers of sheeting and that gives you that nice fluffy top. Bottom pastry, that’s a little bit different, it doesn’t have as many folds, it’s a little bit denser, but they go, still, through the same process, we just have to adjust the machine for it. “Once they come through that process, the rolls of pastry come off on rolls, ADVERT.pdf 1/05/2014 11:51:35 and that1is then pushed

PAGE 23

through to the pie line area. “On the other side of it is the cooking area. We have three big cooking facilities, and that’s where we add the mince, and the ingredients – we do a few tricks there which I won’t elaborate too much on, to get the flavour profiles and so forth – it’s critical that the time and temperature of the mince is consistent to make sure that the cook is consistent as well. “Then we pump the meat across to the pie lines, we bring the rolls across with the pastry, the pastry then is laid on top of the tins, a system deposits the meat into each tin, then the top pastry goes on, and then there’s a system that takes off the surplus pastry, and then that’s rested, before it goes into the oven. “Obviously in the oven it’s baked off, in one end and out the other, and then it goes through a cooling process, before it’s de-tinned, then it goes into crates, and then it goes into another cooling process to bring the temperature down to about 7 deg C. “Then it’s ready for the wrapping process, then it goes down to another chiller, which brings it down to about 3 deg C, then it’s ready for the market.” a.m.

HEALTH

An A to ZZZZ guide to sleep Tips for successful sleep

Sleepless nights can lead to health problems Taking steps to improve your mental and physical well-being may fall flat if you’re not spending enough time recharging your body. Sleep experts agree: adequate, regular sleep is essential for overall health and well-being. According to a new recommendation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Research Society, adults should get seven or more hours of sleep a night to avoid the health risks associated with prolonged periods of inadequate sleep. For those who do not make regular sleep a priority, this guidance can motivate healthier lifestyle habits. “Sleep is critical to health, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise,” says Dr Nathaniel F. Watson, AASM president and moderator of the expert panel that developed the recommendation. “Our consensus panel of 15 of the nation’s top sleep experts found that sleeping six or fewer hours per night is inadequate to sustain

SNOOZIN’: People need differing amounts of sleep. health and safety in adults. We also agreed that seven or more hours of sleep per night is the recommended amount for all healthy adults.”

No limit for certain individuals

Recognising that some adults

need more sleep than others, the panel did not place a limit on how much sleep people should get. For example, people who may need nine or more hours of nightly sleep include young adults with growing bodies, individuals trying to make up for lost sleep, or those

who are sick. “More than a third of the population is not getting enough sleep, so the focus needs to be on getting at least seven hours of nightly sleep,” added Watson. “In general we want people to get more sleep, not less.”

What are some easy ways to ensure that you get the sleep you need for a productive and healthy life? Check out these healthy sleep habits. Following these tips can help you develop a healthy sleep pattern: •Be consistent. Go to bed when you are sleepy and try to wake at the same time every day, even on weekends. •Limit time in bed. Don’t use your bed for other non-sleep activities, such as watching television or checking email. •Make your bedroom a sleep haven. A quiet and relaxing bedroom environment will help you fall asleep and stay asleep. Keep the bedroom at a comfortable temperature but slightly cool. •Limit caffeine. Avoid coffee, tea, soda and other caffeine sources in the afternoon and evening hours. •Get at least seven hours. Go to bed early enough to allow yourself to sleep seven hours or more each and every night. Live life awake and refreshed with the proper amount of sleep. You’ll be putting your best foot forward every morning.

mSharing of majestic manta the realm of Give them the right of way and these graceful creatures will do you proud, writes Richard Moore

THE SIGNAL drum sounds to let everyone know that the mantas are in the channel. That sends a lot of people scurrying for the small boats that will take them out to watch the giant marine creatures swim by as they feed on plankton. The tiny plankton flow through a narrow gap between Drawaqa and Naviti islands and the mantas, swimming against the current, enjoy a good meal. The current can be very strong - too much to swim against for long, even with fins - so the boats drop you in an area where you can snorkel in comfort to see the mantas and then go into the deeper channel to be whisked across to where the same boats now wait. Before we enter the water the guides tell us not to chase the mantas. Stay still and they will pass by and then come around again to check you out. If you chase them you may frighten them away.

So with that in mind, and camera ready, it is over the side into a slightly choppy sea. Once the bubbles have cleared I can see a manta below me. It seems to be going gracefully but slowly. However, given that it is going against the current its obviously capable of considerable power. It is soon out of sight but hopefully there’ll be another along soon. Meanwhile, my eyes are attracted to a myriad of vividly coloured fish that teem around the coral reefs on either side of the channel. There are thousands of them, zipping around with nary a care in the world. All of a sudden I’m caught by the current. It’s fun being pushed along at a great rate of knots - I can’t swim against it so I go with the flow. Holding my camera out steadily in front it is a real buzz whooshing through schools of fish that part for you as if by communal agreement. This is way cooler than fun-park rides.

FOOD Stout glaze for ham

Roast turkey with cashew stuffing

Ingredients 1½ cups Stout, or other dark beer 1 cup Brown sugar, loosely packed 2 Tbsp Wholegrain mustard 2 tsp Ground ginger 1½ tsp Ground cardamom 1 tsp Ground cinnamon

Ingredients 3 Tbsp Olive oil 1 Onion, finely chopped 1½ cups Breadcrumbs, fresh ½ cup Roasted cashew nuts, roughly chopped ¼ cup Fresh parsley, chopped 3.5 kgs Turkey 1 splash Olive oil

Directions Combine all the glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan over a low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat to medium and simmer until the glaze becomes syrupy (about 5min). 1. Preheat oven or covered barbecue to 180 deg C 2. Place ham on a rack in a large roasting pan. Half fill roasting pan with water and brush ham liberally with a third to half the glaze. Reserve the rest. Place in oven, or in hooded barbecue. 3. Allow one hour and 20min for a 4 kilo half leg. You will need to baste the ham every 15min. Ham preparation Use a small knife, score a zig-zag line around the base right through the skin. Starting at the other end of the ham, run the knife under the skin and over the top of the fat layer. Use your fingers to peel the skin back. The skin should peel away leaving the fat in one piece. Use your knife to score the fat in a crisscross pattern, making diamonds about 1.5cm long. Don’t cut down into the ham flesh. When you have finished, stud the centre of each diamond with one clove.

Rum and cola glaze

1 can of your favourite cola Directions Mix rum with maple syrup, the zest and juice of a lemon, and Dijon or hot mustard. Score and stud ham with cloves. Brush the glaze all over, bake in shallow bath of your favourite cola and baste ham frequently as you go.

Ingredients ½ cup Rum ⅓ cup Maple syrup 1 Lemon, zested and juiced 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard, or hot mustard 1 packet Cloves

MOTORING

Fresh engines for Ford Kuga AT FIRST glance you would think not a lot has changed with Ford’s new Kuga. Well, you’d be right, in appearance it is pretty much the popular SUV which is already familiar on our roads. However, it has had a bit of a cosmetic refresh here and there and given it is not long into its lifecycle, I guess we could expect further enhancements along the way. All that aside, what has changed is the introduction of new engines, the Kuga is available here with three engine options, all turbocharged. There’s a 1.5-litre petrol engine to kick the range off, there’s a 2-litre petrol engine and a 2-litre diesel. The test car was the entrylevel model, although some might think the 1.5-litre engine would jeopardise performance; that’s simply not true, Ford is undergoing a massive engineering push to develop small capacity turbocharged engines which they are branding EcoBoost. I’ve driven several EcoBoost engines in various applications, and have always been impressed with their refined operating nature and incredible power versus economy figures. In the Kuga nothing has changed, the 1498cc engine is rated at 134kW and 240Nm of torque, and it’s where those figures

SPECIFICATIONS

are developed that’s most extraordinary. Peak power is developed at just 5700rpm, while maximum torque is available all of the way from 1600rpm to 5000rpm. The result is a fluid flow of power all through the rev range. Ford also rates the twin-camshaft unit with a seven-litre per 100km (40mpg) combined cycle fuel usage rating. The trip computer was constantly hovering around 9l/100km (31mpg) when I was behind the wheel. These are good figures for a car which weighs in around 1600kg, so they should please the Kuga buyer come fill-up time and you don’t have to be gentle on the throttle to pick up good fuel usage results, the engine is just so lively and responsive it is nice to feel its delivery. Sure, the Kuga is not a performance car, it is designed for functionality and practicality, but it will whisk through a highway overtake in 5sec (80km/h to 120km/h), and will lunge to 100km/h from a standstill in 9sec.

Still Pedalling!

Price: Ford Kuga Ambiente, $36,990. Dimensions: Length,4524mm; width, 1838mm; height, 1680mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 1498cc, 134kW, 240Nm, sixspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9sec.

For that money it doesn’t miss out on much threatened.

FISHERMAN’S WHARF

The fully independent suspension has spring and damper rates beautifully structured, that is something Ford’s chassis engineers can take a lot of credit for, the ride is sublime, yet body balance and control in a corner is unyielding. I pushed the Kuga hard through the tight bits, and it has handling ability well beyond its design parameters. The combination of power and handling stretches beyond the SUV concept, which will please those who like to be well involved as a driver. Deep down I’m a bit of a fan of European Fords, I’ve owned several over the years, and have always related to the dynamics which provide an entertaining drive along with the practical elements which suit the purpose of the vehicle. The Kuga fits that mould well.

More Health Benefits with ADVANCED OMEGA-PC Fish Oil

I

t is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a higher amounts of omega-3 in the diet are known to have lower cardiovascular disease and in many cases better overall health. Recent research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease and the ageing process. Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself and maintain good health. Fish oil supplements have become hugely popular for this reason. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. Fish however naturally contain omega-3 in triglyceride and phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC sets new standards in fish oil as it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides and phospholipids. Studies have shown GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC to be far better absorbed leading to increased levels of vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs thru giving the potential for more

health benefits. GO-ADVANCED OMEGAPC is produced from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish using a new advanced and more natural cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP standards and is molecularly distilled to remove any containments, toxins and heavy metals like mercury. Further information on this revolutionary new fish oil and how it may benefit you is available from the Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath and Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

1 in 2 People Deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

S

cientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass and the lowest scores on tests measuring shortterm memory, concentration and brain performance. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains and score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and declining cognitive function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair, and prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains and score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body.

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Orion’s tree management programme Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut / trim or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone. The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners. The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a secure supply of electricity. The regulations: • define safe separation distances between trees and power lines • specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained • places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation, including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice. What is a hazard warning notice? If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

What are the dangers? Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons: • children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of serious injury or death • in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may electrocute anyone or anything that touches it • while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages • in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines may cause fires.

Notice zone

Tree “B”

Tree “A”

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines. To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole 2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow 3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage. A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

FALL ZONE FALL ZONE

Trimming trees near power lines Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause: • • • • • •

injury or death to yourself, family or passers by injury or death to livestock damage to property and other trees damage to electrical appliances damage to power supply facilities damage to third parties.

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth limit zone. What is a cut or trim notice? If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action. If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs. Who pays for the cut or trim? Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut of vegetation on all our lines. The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims. We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out this work.

What fines can be imposed? A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the time and location of the cut or trim.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the public, we will use the regulations where necessary.
