LITTLE LEARNERS: Lyttelton Primary School pupils have had their first day of learning in their brand new building. Pupils were welcomed to the new school, on the corner of Oxford St and Sumner Rd, with a mihi whakatau, or formal welcome, on Monday morning. There were speeches and a cake cutting. Lyttelton Primary is the result of a merger between Lyttelton Main and West schools. The school had been operating out of two separate sites until April 15, the last day of term one. • More photos, p17. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Intersection riddled with problems BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

CONFUSING: The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board has asked whether traffic signals could be installed at the bottom of St Andrews Hill Rd, after a city council report criticised the layout of the intersection.

INSIDE:

The new Ferrymead bridge intersection re-design is riddled with problems, a report has revealed. The city council designed and installed the Bridle Path and St Andrews Hill Rds intersection, which was operational in September. But now its own traffic engineers have found significant design problems that they say should have been picked up when a pre-construction safety audit was done in February 2014. The problems include difficulties turning right onto Bridle Path

Rd from St Andrews Hill Rd, the speed of vehicles approaching the intersection, a lack of visibility, and queuing of vehicles. Go Bus, which is contracted by Environment Canterbury to run bus routes in the area, said in the report that the right turn out of St Andrews Hill Rd was “almost impossible for the drivers”. Now, the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board, which ordered the investigation, has directed staff to come up with ways of making the intersection better, including the possibility of putting in traffic signals at the bottom of St Andrews Hill Rd. The underground cables have

been laid for the signals, and it would cost about $150,000 for them to be activated. Previously the Bay Harbour News reported that residents were frustrated with the intersection, with many saying they avoided using it. The report said residents’ concerns were “valid” and the intersection design was “far from ideal”. Community Board chairwoman Sara Templeton said it was clear the concerns raised were valid, and while accidents were unlikely to be serious, they were expected to be commonplace. • Turn to page 5

Bid to bring cruise ships home Report being discussed behind closed doors

WELCOME VISITOR: Cruise ships, such as The World, used to stop in Lyttelton until the berth was damaged in the earthquakes. The World is pictured here in 2003.

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Location and costs of installing a new Lyttelton cruise ship berth have been discussed behind closed doors. A “highly confidential” report has been developed and presented to Christchurch City Holdings Ltd last week, but it can not be made public because it is “commercially sensitive”. CCHL is an investment arm of the city council. City councillor Ali Jones, who is part of a working party set up to support the cruise ship berth rebuild in Lyttelton, said it was now up to CCHL chief executive Bob Lineham as to when the information would go to the city council. She hoped it would be within the month, however it was unlikely to be made public then. “It’s an extremely robust and positive piece of work that I’m really excited about it being presented to council,” she said. Lyttelton’s cruise ship berth

was damaged in the earthquakes, and cruise ships have been hosted by Akaroa since, with mixed reactions from businesses and residents. Cr Jones said the working party saw the report first, and made a few adjustments before it was presented to the board. “There is no indication at this stage from council or any party that a cruise berth will go ahead. There is still much to do including speaking with the cruise lines who are obviously key to any decision on a cruise berth.”

However, she said she could not express enough how “important” it was to get cruise ships back into Lyttelton. Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board chairwoman Paula Smith said the board had not seen the contents of the report, but understood it looked into economics. She said it was important to the board and local businesses that cruise ships returned to Lyttelton. Before the earthquakes, when ships came in, businesses would see about a 10 per cent increase

in turnover, she said. A Lyttelton Port of Christchurch spokeswoman said LPC would not comment on the rebuild. Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism chief executive Vic Allen said rebuilding a cruise ship berth in Lyttelton was being worked on, and it was supporting that effort.

PORT EXPANSION PROGRESS Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s reclamation of Te Awaparahi Bay has reached 9.35ha and is expected to increase to 10ha this year. More than 2,400,000 tonnes of earthquake demolition material and rubble has gone into the reclamation, which has allowed the port to expand. 5.5 hectares of the reclamation is in use and another hectare will be available mid-year. COUNCILLOR STANDS DOWN City councillor Tim Scandrett wants to stand down from the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee if a replacement can be found. Cr Scandrett said the committee meetings often clashed with his Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board meetings, making it difficult for him to attend. While he still kept up to date with what happened in the meetings, he said he would prefer if an elected member who lived in the area took over. UNHITCHING INVESTIGATION Police have spoken to about 10 people about a $150,000 boat being unhitched from its mooring in Akaroa Harbour. The Debbie Jane, a fishing trawler, was set afloat at about 1.30am on April 23. Senior Constable Anita Osborne said police know of a number of vehicles that were in the area at the time and were continuing to investigate. Anyone with information should contact police on 363 7400 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A man who crashed his vehicle near Birdlings Flat in March was allegedly more than three times over the legal breath alcohol limit. Senior Constable Anita Osborne said the Christchurch man would appear in the district court on May 17, charged with driving with excess blood alcohol and careless driving. The 48-year-old was driving home from Birdlings Flat on March 30 at about 1.30pm when he rolled his vehicle over an embankment into a paddock near Jones Rd. He was cut from the vehicle

Senior Constable Osborne said he had gotten his truck stuck in sand near a fishing spot overnight, and was towed out in the morning. He was driving back to Christchurch the following day, and had driven less than 2km, when he crashed, she said. Senior Constable Osborne said he had “possibly fallen asleep” and when she arrived he smelt of alcohol.

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Lyttelton residents have been stuck for up to 50min while Lyttelton Tunnel is closed for maintenance and dangerous goods loads. Since the earthquakes, the tunnel has had to undergo more maintenance, because more trucks carrying bulk loads have been using it with the closure of Sumner Rd. Dangerous goods loads, such as fuel, have to go through the tunnel as well, which requires temporary closures. Lyttelton resident Bernard Anderson said the tunnel access from 10pm-midnight had become increasingly interrupted by maintenance and cleaning. He said traffic volumes were still high at that time and he had experienced waits of up to 50min. New Zealand Transport Agency highway manager Colin Knaggs said prior to the earthquakes, the tunnel was swept once every three weeks as part of its maintenance. That removed about 250kg of material that had flown off trucks monthly. However, since the quakes, with more trucks carrying uncovered bulk loads through the

Board of Trustees on Monday to to look over the school’s submission, which calls for the school to remain open. It follows a group of representatives travelling to Wellington last month to present Minister Parata with a petition calling for the school to return to its Main Rd site. The board will take Minister Parata over the key points of its submission. BUS STOP CLOSED Lyttelton’s Oxford St overbridge and the bus stop at the wharf will be temporarily closed today until early next year while wharf repairs are carried out. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians, but vehicles will have to use the Sutton Quay overbridge, at No. 7 gate. Bus services will continue from the nearest stop on Norwich Quay.

tunnel, it had to be swept three times a week, with up to eight tonnes of material collected monthly. Mr Knaggs said a proposed change in the Lyttelton Tunnel Bylaw would make it compulsory for trucks to carry covered loads, which would help reduce maintenance. When Sumner Rd reopens in about two years, it would again be the route used to carry dangerous goods loads, he said. Currently, the trucks with dangerous goods have to enter the tunnel one by one, going in the same direction, with a two-

minute gap in between. Mr Knaggs said the transport agency is also looking to improve its communication with residents on when closures would take place, by putting more notices in local media. National List MP Nuk Korako said he had spoken to a number of residents who felt better communication was needed. He said it was good the transport agency was working to improve its communication with residents, and a text system could be another alert option. “It needs a combination of different mediums.”

Jodi Wright

Veteran festival director’s work with writers, Sumner’s Jodi Wright is again running the Cavell Leitch New Zealand Jazz and Blues Festival which will take place this month. She spoke to Bridget Rutherford about starting the World Buskers Festival, living in Sumner and writing a novel inspired by growing up around addiction So can you tell me a bit about this month’s Cavell Leitch NZ Jazz and Blues Festival? Well this is the 18th Cavell Leitch New Zealand Jazz and Blues Festival. Post-earthquakes it’s been a real challenge because of the venue situation. We’ve spent the last couple of years using different venues but this is the first year we’re back at a proper one, the Isaac Theatre Royal. This year’s event is also a celebration of the jazz school turning 25, so we’ll have that on the first day on May 25, and on May 26 we have the Ramsey Lewis Quartet, they are coming in from Chicago. The festival has been running for a while, I feel really great about how the city’s progressing and the rebuild. We also moved

the festival from April to May this year because historically it has been in the school holidays, but we wanted to incorporate the great high school jazz bands. This year it will feature four high school jazz bands, but I would have preferred to have more. Where was the festival hosted after the earthquakes? We had some at The Bedford. We had Charlie Musselwhite, one of the greatest blues performers in the world, perform in the student lounge at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (now Ara Institute of Canterbury), which he was ok to do because he comes from grassroots. I told him the situation, that we had a big earthquake, and he was like ‘wow, I will come out’. Bonnie Raitt played in the Christchurch Town Hall in 2008, and came back in 2013 and was fully aware of the quake. It’s been a challenge in some ways to accommodate acts that require a proper concert hall. The Piano venue which is nearly built venue, looks wonderful, so things are coming around. Who will be at this month’s festival? I have Ramsey Lewis and Tami Neilson performing in the Transitional Cathedral, doing a bluesy country show, and there

are so many other great performers. One group has put together a Stevie Wonder show. For four nights we have international acts. We’ve also got great art work this year, so it’s been good. We’ve got a bit of everything, and even jazz shows at The George. So how long have you been running the festival? Eighteen years. I started the World Buskers Festival, and I just retired from that two years ago. Sometimes in the 90s and 2000s I would be running three or four festivals at a time. I was executive director for the writers festival as well. I don’t know how or why I did all of it at the same time, but I would be running from one to another. Can you fill me in on how the World Buskers Festival actually started? Well, right about the time you were born I moved to New Zealand from Seattle. I had a difficult time because I come from this background of events and marketing and I had difficulty finding a job. After a while of not finding a job, I called the then mayor Vicki Buck. She was really good and encouraging. She said she had been planning to put a committee together to start a Festival of Romance and said I should apply for it. So I did, and I got it. The Festival of Romance was an outdoor arts and entertainment festival, centred around the central city and the Arts Centre for nine days, concluding on Valentine’s Day. It was sweet, but the funding for it just wasn’t happening. Then I started the World Buskers Festi-

buskers and the local music scene val. Vicki and I came up with the name of it. At the Festival of Romance we had a few street performers who would turn up, which gave us the idea to hold their own festival. I put together the first festival, which had 10 performers in 1994. It grew and grew and grew slowly. Then suddenly it grew a lot. Why did you decide to step down? I stepped down in November 2014, but I set up the whole line up for 2015 festival beforehand. I was writing a novel, I’ve been a writer for a long time, but I kept putting it on the back burner. I had 22 years at the World Buskers Festival, I just thought something has to give. I felt like I had taken it as far as I could with the resources that were available to me. So you’re originally from America, why the move to New Zealand? I married a man from South Canterbury, he was in the United States playing polo. I met him at a jazz club. He sat next to me, I had a friend with me, but I couldn’t understand a word he said. When he said he played polo I assumed he played water polo. I remember saying to him ‘so you wear beanies on

your head and speedos’? And he was like what? (laughs) His name is Peter, and he is a car dealer. We’ve always lived in Christchurch. How long have you been in Sumner for? I’ve lived in Sumner since 2003, for a long time. It’s beautiful. It’s a nice village, and there’s a nice feeling. I can go out my door and walk all the way to Godley Head. The quakes did wipe us out, they wiped everyone out, but things are coming back around. Do you have any kids? Yes, they’re in their 30s, they are in Christchurch. We’ve gone back to the States often but it’s hard to live somewhere else then go back, the energy is so different. Everything is a big drama there, and with that election everything is on edge. It feels like reality television, like a spoof. It’s calmer and easier to live here. If you’re a creative person and you want to spend time writing or painting, there’s a lot of space here to do that. What I miss about the States is my family. And you mentioned before you were writing a book, fill me in. It’s published now. It took a year from when I left buskers to

finish it. It’s a novel called How to Grow an Addict. I’ve been writing for years and years. I wrote this book because I have experience of drug addiction and alcohol addiction, but the book is not my story. It was so long ago, before I moved here. I just grew up around heavy drinkers, and I was one of those teens who was always throwing a party. I was the first one to drink anything. It was fun for a while until it wasn’t anymore. So if people in the area wanted to go to the jazz festival, the closest would be at Orange Studio?

Yes. I’m hoping to be able to use Sumner Surf Life Saving Club next year. But there will be improvisation jazz shows at Orange Studio. Any plans to start up any more festivals in the future? You just never know. I will never say no. If something really great came along and I thought the city could use this, I would. • The Cavell Leitch NZ International Jazz and Blues Festival will run in various venues from May 25-29.

An Akaroa man has been remanded on bail after appearing in the district court for allegedly assaulting two people. Senior Constable Anita Osborne said the 35-year-old allegedly went to a flat in Akaroa at about 9.30am on April 26 and assaulted a male and a female there. She said the victims received bruising, grazes, and the male had a swollen jaw. The pair reported the incident, and the alleged voluntarily came into the station later that day. Senior Constable Osborne would not release any details of the circumstances surrounding the assault. The man appeared in the district court on April 27, charged with assault with intent to injure and male assaults female, and was remanded on bail. He is to have no association with the witnesses or victims, and is not to go to the address while on bail. He will appear again on May 18.

Ian Knewstubb of Lyttelton responds to Paula Smith’s Soap Box column calling for Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s No 4 wharf to be turned into a public space: As one who has spent over 25 years supporting heritage in Lyttelton, this proposal should be supported to the hilt. It would be a perfect site for a new Lyttelton Museum and the Diamond Harbour Ferry. With the move east for commercial operations and the container trade of the port company, and the relocation of many civic activities to the corner of Canterbury and London Sts, the visual relationship

between No 4 and the town is compelling. With a pedestrian walkway over Norwich Quay and rail operations, and with enhanced public space developments as found in Auckland etc, this would make for a wonderful heritage area as befitting the maritime history of Lyttelton. I am well aware how this wharf has been neglected but the cost of demolition would be horrendous and such monies could be set aside for maintenance and preliminary developments. There is no need for undue haste as we are now just recovering from the terrible loss of built heritage in Lyttelton.

Facebook us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch/ Readers respond to a suggestion that the annual Guy Fawkes fireworks display at New Brighton could be held at Sumner while the pier receives repairs: Diana Johnston, of Sumner – No to an annual fireworks display in Sumner. Sumner area is just not large enough to accommodate potentially the thousands of people who may attend. Sumner roads are narrow, constantly being worked on and easily congested. Try travelling to and from on a

Sunday afternoon. Sumner hills in the last couple of years have had at least three fires, two where empty (thank goodness) properties were set alight and burned to the ground, and last week a scrub fire on Scarborough was just contained. We have endured a fairly tragic few years post the major and minor earthquakes and I would not like to see any more risk taken down here. I grew up in this area and remember fireworks on Sumner Beach, but this was minimal

compared to the huge event. Christchurch now holds, and mainly attended by residents. Lastly, New Brighton has a much larger area of ocean and beach than Sumner and plenty of parking. Hagley Park could also be an appropriate venue with plenty of open space and accommodation for parking. Jan Lisle - I am sure Sumner would do a great job hosting the fireworks and the community would get behind it.

Housing subsidy still needed A Government heating and insulation subsidy programme comes to an end in June. Community Energy Action Charitable Trust chief executive Caroline Shone writes this week’s column about the importance of the programme and why it should continue in some form. Shelter is one of the most basic of human needs and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says that everyone has the right to housing. It can be debated that housing that makes people sick, isn’t housing at all. However houses that are damp, houses that are cold, with the people living in them unable to heat them to an adequate temperature to keep them healthy, are a reality for many households in Christchurch. The old, the young and the sick suffer most in those houses. We all know the result. Every winter sees many residents ending up in hospital with preventable cold-related health issues. Even healthy people get sick more often in those cold, damp houses. From experience we know that

SOAP BOX installing insulation and heating in people’s homes especially those with health conditions will reduce hospitalisations, delivering cost savings to the health system. Installing insulation and heating is a one-off cost but the benefits last a long time, saving money on health and saving lives every year. The Government through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) have spent $450 million nationwide on insulation and heating subsidies over the last couple of years. And we know it has made a difference. The current subsidy programme comes to an end in June this year. It would be fantastic if subsidies would be available in the future for those who need insulation. It’s a great way for Christchurch people to help those in their community who need a bit of help to create a warm, dry, healthy home.

LOCAL Achievers

If you know of a local achiever, email bridget. rutherford@starmedia.kiwi TRICKY JOB: Abseilers began getting rid of loose rocks on the cliff above Moa Bone Cave last week.

Rock danger removed Abseilers began scaling loose rocks from the cliffs around Sumner last week as part of a project to reduce the risk of hazardous rock falls to the Sumner -Lyttelton lifeline route. The scaling work began last Tuesday on the cliff above Moa Bone Cave with abseilers using crowbars and airbags to leverage loose rock from the cliff face. City council senior geotechnical engineer Dr Ian Wright said crow bars were efficient at removing the smaller rocks, but airbags were necessary for some of the bigger ones. They were slipped in behind the rock and inflated like a balloon. Once inflated, they applied up to 24 tonnes of pressure behind the rock, causing it to become unstable and collapse into a safe area below. It was a better alternative than

blasting in a residential area, Dr Wright said. The work will minimise the risk of dangerous rock falls in the event of future trigger events such as earthquakes. Other cliffs around Sumner would be tackled in the coming months. Other hazard reduction work planned around Sumner includes construction of a 3m high, 300m long rock stack bund in front of Shag Rock Reserve, also known as Peacock’s Gallop. The bund, which will have a 2m high mesh security fence erected in front of it, is designed to catch any rocks that fall from the cliff face above if another quake strikes. It will be constructed entirely from material that has already fallen from the cliff.

HISTORIC: The Gaiety was one of 35 finalists in this year’s Canterbury Heritage Awards.

Heritage award recognition for landmark buildings Three Akaroa landmarks and a Ferrymead house are finalists in the Canterbury Heritage Awards. Akaroa’s Banksia Cottage is nominated for an award in the Domestic Saved and Restored category. It’s work was carried out by Plane Tree Ltd. The Gaiety, which was repaired and officially opened last month, is up for the Public Realm Saved and Restored award. Banks Peninsula War Memo-

rial was repaired by Fulton Hogan after sustaining earthquake damage, it is in the running for the Seismic category. The memorial, which is owned by a trust rather than the city council or the Returned and Services Association, was officially reopened in October. Curragh House, in Ferrymead, will go for the Heritage Tourism award. A new Christ’s College building, which is named after Governors Bay resident and ar-

chitect Sir Miles Warren, is up for the Future Heritage award. There were nearly 80 entries for the biennial awards, with 35 finalists selected to progress through to the awards ceremony on June 9. The ceremony will be held in the newly restored Great Hall in the Christchurch Arts Centre. Tickets are on sale now for the 2016 Canterbury Heritage Awards Ceremony.

Dancing in the Streets March is always one of the busiest sales months of the year, and this March was no exception! Not only has Autumn provided stellar weather to our beach and hillside suburbs, it has been a stellar month for Ray White Ferrymead with very strong sales during the past month. The level of buyer enquiry remains strong across all areas of the market. The Ray White quarterly list auctions, held on April 20th at the Novotel, demonstrates the enduring power of selling property under the hammer, with 62.5 % sold on the day. Our office continues to see continuing high interest in ‘As is Where Is’ properties, with a large database seeking information solely on these types of properties as soon as the listing is live. Overall sales volumes across the Canterbury region are up by 24% compared to February, with a rise of 19% increase in sales volume compared to March last year. Median house prices across the Canterbury region for this time of year are up 1-2%. REINZ Regional Director, Jim Davis commented that “it is noticeable that stock levels are decreasing again as new listings are, once

again, in short supply and sold stock is not being replaced as quickly. This slowdown of new listing stock coupled with strong sales has meant prices have tended to remain strong and steady so far this year across the market and the drop in days on market is a good indication of the markets current strength.” Our Loan Market representative Antonia McAtamney has commented that the Reserve Bank has left the official cash rate (OCR) unchanged at 2.25%. So what that means for home buyers, is that bank rates will remain stable for the foreseeable future. Another hot topic around our office besides property is the up and coming “Strictly Sumner” dance event, in which our very own Principal, and twinkle toes, Craig Prier will feature! Craig has fortunately been partnered with the tall and graceful Kath Cross, owner of The Cornership Bistro! As much as we like to give Craig a hard time around the office about his ‘2 left feet’, Craig has pushed himself out of his comfort zone entirely, and is doing this to support the local Sumner community.

Amputee’s story told $2.5m needed for health facility FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When Trixie Wuts was born her parents had a very difficult decision to make whether or not to amputate both of her legs to the knee. On the advice of medical professionals, Trixie’s parents Anton and Margot decided amputation was the best solution. Their experience has been documented in a childrens’ book distributed by the Amputee Society of Canterbury and Westland to help families facing a similar choice. The society helped get a $5000 grant for the publishing and distribution of the book from the Artificial Limb Service. Little Jellybean was written by Margot and illustrated by Anton based on their experience. Trixie was diagnosed with distal arthrogryposis before she was born, meaning she had crooked or hooked joints in her feet. She had many procedures done when she was born, which attempted to correct the deformities in both of her feet, but they were largely unsuccessful.

The surgery was successful and Trixie now “leads a full and active life” with her new feet. Amputee Society of Canterbury and Westland president Mark Bruce said the more families that can be reached with the book, the better. “It’s about raising awareness for parents in a situation where their child is very unwell. The story is mainly about the parents having to make an incredibly tough decision to help their children,” he said. Mr Bruce said the book will become an invaluable source for those looking for support. “If you have a young one with an amputation or have a young one about to undergo an amputation then this is a great resource. “The future of the federation is in its youth . . . If we can affect just one family with the help of this book, then it’s been a worthwhile venture,” he said. The society are making copies of the book available from their national and regional coordinators, who can be contacted on www.af.org.nz.

NEW HELP: Amputee Society of Canterbury and Westland president Mark Bruce is helping promote a new source of information for parents. ​

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

The Akaroa community now has to raise $2.5 million for its new health facility, which is expected to be open by the end of next year. The Canterbury District Health Board announced on Monday the design of the facility was ready to go out for tender. It hopes to begin construction in November, with it completed before the end of 2017. Final costings for the new facility are still being worked through, but in order to include beds for aged residential care, the community will have to contribute $2.5 million. The old Akaroa Hospital, on Onuku Pl, was significantly

damaged in both the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes and later demolished. The new facility would have eight aged residential care beds and four general practice beds for inpatients, and would house the general practice and other community services. A community-owned company, Akaroa Health Hub Ltd, will be the provider of the services. The Akaroa Health Hub Structure Group has already raised about $400,000 to go towards the facility. Group chairman Alan Bradford said the announcement that it

was ready to go out for design tender was “the best news we’ve had for a long time.” He said raising the money would be a lot of hard work, but achieveable. Originally the structure group had to raise $1 million for the facility, however, Ngai Tahu Property Ltd pulled out of the project in August. District health board chief executive David Meates (left) said detailed financing and ownership were still being worked through, but sufficient time would be provided for the community fundraising target. That would not impact that construction schedule, he said.

New wheels help youths Lyttelton Port of Christchurch is sponsoring a programme that helps keep youth away from drug-use, violence and crime. LPC has sponsored a vehicle for the Canterbury Youth Development Programme. It will mean co-ordinators can make home visits to disadvantaged youth and their families, and provide transport for youth to work and get an education. LPC chief executive Peter Davie said the company was delighted to support the programme’s work. “Thanks to the work of the CYDP many youths now have the opportunity to get into the workforce and get their lives back on track,” he said. “We hope our contribution

supports safer and more secure homes for Canterbury’s youth and the flow-on effects can benefit the region that we live and work in.” Programme chief executive and co-founder Bevan Seal said a lot of bright young people got dragged into shoplifting,

burglaries and aggressive behaviour because of the environment they were in. “We work to keep kids in education and to keep their home environments a safe and secure place. We are stopping the intergenerational cycle of crime and abuse.”

Camp thrills at Living Springs

​BOMBS AWAY Mt Pleasant Oscar has been running its holiday programme to keep the children entertained, and what better way than a water fight? The children filled up water balloons and threw them at each other, making for a fun activity.

Living Springs has been holding its Kids Camp, which runs every school holidays. Living Springs had 72 campers come from all over the city. The camp had a science theme, with sessions on Conservation, Bush Ecology, and with the team from Science Alive! The campers also enjoyed recreation activities like Adventure Stream, Outdoor Living Skills, Monorail, Flying Fox and Tree Climb.

Ferrymead The Mandibles: A Family, 2029–2047 by Lionel Shriver

E NT

O ER T

WI N

The brilliant new novel from the Orange Prize-winning K author of We Need to Talk about Kevin centres on three BOO generations of The Mandible family as a fiscal crisis S I H T hits a near-future America. ‘In God We Trusted’. It is 2029. The Mandibles have been counting on a sizable fortune filtering down when their 97-year-old patriarch dies. Yet America’s soaring national debt has grown so enormous that it can never be repaid. Under siege from an upstart international currency, the dollar is in meltdown. A bloodless world war will wipe out the savings of millions of American families. Their inheritance turned to ash, each family member must contend with disappointment, but also — as the effects of the downturn start to hit — the challenge of sheer survival. Recently affluent Avery is petulant that she can’t buy olive oil, while her sister Florence is forced to absorb strays into her increasingly cramped household. As their father Carter fumes at having to care for his demented stepmother now that a nursing home is too expensive, his sister Nollie, an expat author, returns from abroad at 73 to a country that’s unrecognisable. Perhaps only Florence’s oddball teenage son Willing, an economics autodidact, can save this formerly august American family from the streets. This is not science fiction. This is a frightening, fascinating, scabrously funny glimpse into the decline that may await the United States all too soon, from the pen of perhaps the most consistently perceptive and topical author of our times.

Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All by Jonas Jonasson

A madcap new novel from the one-of-a-kind author of THE HUNDRED-YEAROLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW and THE GIRL WHO SAVED THE KING OF SWEDEN. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START AGAIN. AND AGAIN. It’s always awkward when five thousand kronor goes missing. When it happens at a certain grotty hotel in south Stockholm, it’s particularly awkward because the money belongs to the hitman currently staying in room seven. Per Persson, the hotel receptionist, just wants to mind his own business, and preferably not get murdered. Johanna Kjellander, temporarily resident in room eight, is a priest without a vocation, and, as of last week, without a parish. But right now she has two things at her disposal: an envelope containing five thousand kronor, and an excellent idea . . . Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and many crates of Moldovan red wine, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonasson’s multimillioncopy bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

SUPPORTIVE: Our Lady Star of the Sea School pupils are wishing dancing duo, Gerry Shackleton and Kim Preston, good luck for this weekend’s Strictly Sumner competition. The pair have chosen to raise money for the school as part of Saturday’s event, where they will perform in front of a large crowd and guest judges. They are among 10 couples who will perform, and in doing so, raise money for local groups, clubs and charities.

Coming together ALL GO: Work is progressing on Living Springs’ Founders Field project, with the hard surfaced sports court being sealed last week. The finished project will include a playing field, the court, and a picnic area. Living Springs chief executive Denis Aldridge said it was all coming together, and they hoped to see it finished within the next few weeks. “This is a wonderful project coming together here which includes Founders Field, a large scale sporting field which opens up a whole lot of possibilities including concerts, jamborees, and large events with lots of tents and all the rest,” he said.

Top tips for swimmers Two young swimmers from Mt Pleasant and Sumner got the chance to learn from the best at a national swimming camp. Mt Pleasant’s Oliver Aikawa, and Sumner’s Hugo Tresfield qualified for the 36-member Jetstar Super Swim Squad Camp which was held in Auckland from April 23-25. Both qualified for the camp after winning their age groups in the NZ Ocean Swim Series race at Corsair Bay last year.

The coaches for the camp was captained by Northern Arena head of swimming Dean Kent, and included double Olympic gold medalist Danyon Loader, and Rio 2016 Olympic qualifier Emma Robinson. Recently crowned winners of the 2015/2016 New Zealand Ocean Swim Series, Olympic hopefuls Charlotte Webby and Nathan Capp were also on the coaching team, as well as elite Australian open water swimmer, Michael Shiel.

Sumner Running Club men’s masters captain Dave Fitch won the 40 to 44 yearold category of the Rotorua Marathon. Fitch recorded a personal best time on the 42.2km course of 2hr 41min 53sec on Saturday to secure the win by about two minutes. Fitch finished 11th overall out of the more than 1000 competitors that entered. Sumner Running Club member Ann Wells said although Fitch tends to do better in cross-country, he performed well to take the win. “Traditionally more comfortable running the crosscountry and road races up to 15km or a half marathon, the marathon distance was a big step up for Fitch. “In spite of a less than ideal build up, he ran a strong and very consistent race,” she said. Wells said she was

relieved to see Fitch come through the 24km mark looking fresh. “I have watched Fitch run so many races and know the signs when things aren’t going so well. So it was a relief when he ran through the 24km mark looking strong,” she said. She said he continued to maintain consistent pace for the rest of the race in spite of some cramping issues.

“Running into the finishing straight he was flying and he was two minutes clear of the next finisher,” she said. Meanwhile, the Sumner Running Club started their winter cross-country season during the school holidays with two races. The opening event was the Hagley Memorial relays, held over Anzac weekend, followed by the Lionel Fox relays, at Woodend Beach Domain on Saturday. In the Lionel Fox relays, Ben Ainsley and Nathan Jones took out first and second in the masters men’s individual placings. The top individual placings went to second-placed Sam Clark, and third-placed Victoria Wells. Sumner’s senior men’s team finished fourth, while the under 18 relay team of Emilio Kennedy, John Wells, Victoria Wells, and Sam Clark placed sixth overall.

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES Instruction in organic horticulture is now well established at the Lincolnbased Organic Training College. The next year-long course, which begins on 1st August, will be the ninth intake for the college. Students need no prior qualifications or experience to commence Year One and can study full or part-time. Those who have some horticultural background can go straight into Year Two.

The students grow vegetables under the guidance of a mentor and sell them at a weekly stall at Lincoln University students experience in a commercial environment without any risk. It’s the icing on the cake for a lot of the students here,” says Bill Martin. As well as the year-long organic horticulture courses a distance (correspondence) programme in organics is also available.

Twins with football talent

Last week Bay Harbour News reported on promising football player Ryan Nicholson. But there is also another part of the Nicholson sporting equation – his twin sister Britneylee. Fraser Walker-Pearce reports.

The Nicholson twins started sport at age four when Britneylee copied her slightly younger brother’s choice to take it up, and a friendly rivalry started. Now, 12 years later, the Mt Pleasant twins are fiercely competitive, and “always” push each other to do better and succeed. Ryan was picked to represent New Zealand in the upcoming Super Cup, to be held in Northern Ireland in July. He also plays for the St Andrew’s College first 11, the Coastal Spirit men’s reserves team, and is a Canterbury futsal player. Meanwhile, Britneylee is a successful footballer, playing premier football for club, Coastal Spirit, as well as being an age group representative for Canterbury for both football and futsal. She won the golden boot at last year’s futsal nationals competition. Britneylee said they challenge each other’s performance when they get home from a match. “We’re both very competitive,

we always compare who’s scored more goals and things like that,” she said. “I was born before Ryan, so I kind of hold that over him,” Britneylee said. Ryan said they disagree on who is smarter, and who their favourite footballer is. Ryan’s favourite footballer is Argentinian Lionel Messi, while Britneylee prefers Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo. But they can agree that Manchester City is their favourite English Premier League team. Britneylee is usually a striker in her teams, while Ryan prefers to play in the midfield, which Ryan said makes it hard to define who is better. “We play completely different positions so it’s hard to say who’s the better footballer,” he said. If football doesn’t work out for the twins, they each have a back up job in mind. Britneylee said: “I’d want to be an architect, and go to an American college.” Ryan said: “I’d want to be a football coach, and give back to the game a bit.” They also share a twin instinct. Ryan said if his sister is thinking of particular subjects, he “generally” knows what it will be. “I can generally gather the vibe of what she’s thinking,” he said.

Ferrymead Bays in winning form FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

BIG AMBITIONS: If football doesn’t work out for twins Britneylee and Ryan, they want to become an architect and a football coach respectively.

Ferrymead Bays are in a rich vein of form having won their last two games on the trot. After beating Western 4-1 over Anzac Weekend, Bays took on Halswell on Saturday and beat them by the same margin. The back-to-back wins see Bays rise from seventh place to fourth in the Mainland Premier League. First team coach Danny Halligan said after a slow start to the season, he is pleased with how his side are progressing. “They’re just a couple of wins, but we are making up ground from some disappointing results earlier in the season,” he said. Bays will play Coastal Spirit this week. Coastal are currently second with 17 points from eight matches. The match will kick off at 2.45pm at ASB Football Park on Saturday.

The arrival of Ford’s new Mustang has generated a heightened level of excitement within the performance car market in New Zealand. The Mustang capped off a busy year for Ford during 2015, notwithstanding there was a new Mondeo, a Ranger refresh, and a heavily upgraded and revamped Focus. This evaluation surrounds the Focus which lands here in both wagon and hatchback forms; amidst those variants are four engine options and several specification levels. The test car was my personal favourite, the Sport hatchback with its 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine. There are bigger engines – 1.6-litre to 2-litre and diesel – but I find the baby of the series quite alluring. Ford has really embraced turbocharging technologies, and the Ecoboost 1.5-litre stands out for its honesty and low down torquey characteristics. The turbocharger not only helps pump up the power outputs – 132kW and 240Nm – but it is also a mechanism for promoting fuel efficiency. Ford claims a 6.7-litre per 100km (42mpg) combined cycle rating for the S-specification Ecoboost

FORD FOCUS: Dynamic in terms of power delivery.

Focus. That correlates well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) average showing constantly on the test car’s trip computer, along with a 5.5l/100km (51mpg) instantaneous readout cruising at a steady 100km/h, the engine quite unstressed at just 1800rpm. And if you think small displacement engines can’t hack it in terms of performance, the opposite applies, maximum torque is available all of the way from 1600rpm to 5000rpm. The Focus in this from is feisty, it will scamper to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.5sec, and lunge through a highway overtake in 5sec (80km/h-120km/h). Not only does the engine stand out for its solid power delivery, it works through the transmission to provide strong

engine braking on an easing throttle. If you use that in conjunction with the paddle-shift system, the Focus S does feel sporty, it is punchy and dynamic in terms of power delivery. The new enhancements for 2016 include engineering changes which have made the Focus even quieter and less vulnerable to coarse chip road seal surfaces. At highway speed it is superbly quiet, that only broken by the eager throb of the engine under load, it’s not overbearing, but when you request acceleration, it is audible. The suspension and chassis settings are biased towards a controlled ride and strong steering turn-in. You can really lean on the Focus in a corner and it will respond with decisive handling manners and

controlled suspension movement. It’s that level of quality which makes the Focus a desirable purchase. At $38,340 for the S-spec model you get all the trick gear which is landing in Ford product these days. Items such as satellite navigation, keyless entry and ignition, voice recognition and smartphone connectivity are all included. There’s also a massive amount of safety gear and function which help in the everyday missions we have to tackle as drivers. Some include enhanced active park assist, and parallel and perpendicular park assist. One of the key safety features I like is the driver impairment monitor, it works alongside the lane keeping aid and alerts to keep the driver aware that he/ she should be taking a break. Even though the Focus sits in the Mustang’s shadow it is still an integral part of Ford’s line-up.

The 3 Step Plan to Make Healthy Habits Stick Health and Wellness Coach Annabelle Matson gives us her 3 step plan on how to make healthy habit stick. Add, modify and delete, it’s as easy as ABC

W

hen it comes to eating habits and making improvements to our health in general, trying to change absolutely everything about our lifestyle overnight, very rarely works. We often think: “if I can’t eat / do things perfectly, I shouldn’t bother at all”. As a recovering perfectionist I totally get that. However this clearly doesn’t support success. It just keeps us stuck right where we are, on the dieting roller coaster, never seeing results for the long term. I always say to my clients, “overtime not overnight”. We want to do things gradually, because that’s what results in permanent change. Why weight loss and many health programs often don’t work, is because we go from eating whatever we want, to restricting everything. So instead of drastically restricting everything, use my 3 step tool – add, modify and delete. A: Pick one thing you want to add

B: Pick one thing you want to modify C: Pick one thing you want to delete For example: Add: A morning meditation to centre you for the day. Modify: Refined sugar intake. Alcohol is a huge source of sugar – so instead of drinking during the week, stick to a few just on the weekends. Delete: Eating after 8pm.

Commit to the add, modify, delete plan for 30 days. Once that all becomes a habit – start a new add, modify, delete plan. When you do steps incrementally like that, it creates new habits. You won’t feel overwhelmed and it feels really manageable. Like magic, it all starts to become a lifestyle that you LOVE and that are you motivated to sustain.
