High noon for Redcliffs School By Bridget Rutherford BY 1PM tomorrow, Redcliffs School will know its fate. Education Minister Hekia Parata will meet with principal Rose McInerney (left), board of trustees chairman Kent France, member Mark Robberds and board adviser Stephanie

Grieve in Wellington tomorrow for the announcement. Ms McInerney said by 1pm tomorrow, school staff, parents and pupils would know whether the school could return to its Main Rd site and remain open. She said school supporters were feeling optimistic, hopeful and a bit nervous. “Everyone is looking forward to knowing the decision and feel that all of the Minister’s concerns have been addressed so we are very hopeful that the decision

will be a positive one for Redcliffs School.” The school has been based at van Asch Deaf Education Centre in Sumner since June 2011. In November Ms Parata made an interim decision to close the school, and it had until March to make its submission on why it should remain open. Ms McInerney said a Redcliffs community meeting following the decision would be held at the school hall at van Asch Deaf Education Centre at 7pm.

Losing hair for a good cause Manscape hairdresser Jackie Stinson shaves off Mike Dart’s dreadlocks, which he had been growing for 10 years, to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation. Winnie Bagoes Ferrymead held the fundraiser recently, with about 200 people going along to watch and donate. It raised more than $5000 for the cause. Winnie Bagoes owner Mike Knowles said the highlight of the night was everyone’s generosity. He hoped to run the event again next year. ​

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK ON MY usual walk around Sumner a couple of weeks ago, my nose picked up the wondrous smell that is freshly baked bread. Turning around the corner onto Nayland St, there it was – a beaut new bakery. We chat to owner of Bohemian Bakery Maka Angyalova, on pages 12 and 13, who actually used to work as a business analyst. We hear the sausage rolls and pretzels are rather good. Rugby player Uto Enosi Tuipulotu came to Akaroa four years ago to get an education and is now battling a rare form of cancer. His former history teacher is trying to raise money via a Givealittle page to bring his family over from Tonga to help support him. More on page 5. And finally, tomorrow we will learn the fate of Redcliffs School. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

News Local body pay ‘ludicrous’ Community board salaries almost halved Community board members, and chairs salaries following October’s elections: Papanui-Innes: Member: $22,432, chair: $44,863 Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood: Member: $22,127, chair: $44,254 Coastal-Burwood: Member: $22,432, chair: $44,863 Halswell-HornbyRiccarton: Member: $23,345, chair: $46,690 Linwood-CentralHeathcote: Member: $23,432, chair: $46,690 Spreydon-Cashmere: Member: $22,432, chair: $44,836 Banks Peninsula: Member: $9368, chair: $18,737

By Bridget Rutherford A LONG-STANDING local body politician fears an $8000 pay cut for Banks Peninsula representatives will limit the number of people that will stand. The Government-appointed Remuneration Authority has almost halved Banks Peninsula Community Board members’ salaries, from $17,500 to $9368, which would come into effect following the elections on October 8. The chairperson’s salary would be reduced from $26,200 to $18,737. Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board chairwoman Paula Smith, who is not standing in the upcoming elections, said the pay cut could make the difference between whether a person decides to stand or not. “If people aren’t prepared to stand because the money is too low the calibre of candidates is not going to be so high and over time our ability to advocate for the needs of the community will slowly reduce.” The current Lyttelton-Mt Herbert and Akaroa-Wairewa community boards would be turned into one Banks Peninsula board

Ann Jolliffe

following October’s elections. It would have two representatives each from Lyttelton, Mt Herbert and Akaroa, and one from Wairewa. Ms Smith said three out of the five Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board members were not seeking re-election, so the new board would need new faces. She said although members did not do the job for the money, it was a factor in their decision because it was difficult to get another job while serving. “This just could make a difference between whether they decide to stand or not.” The nearby Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board chairperson would be paid $46,690, while a member would receive $23,345 a year. Remuneration Authority chairwoman Fran Wilde said

remuneration was based on ward population throughout the country, not the hours they worked. Member Ann Jolliffe said to expect anyone to do the job for that pay was “ludicrous”. “It’s an insult to all the work we’ve done regardless of what you’re getting paid.” Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board chairwoman Pam Richardson said she could not understand how this had happened. “It is a pretty disappointing situation we’re in.” •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think representatives serving on the new Banks Peninsula Community Board should be paid the same as the city board members?

In Brief BID TO GET BIRDS BACK Sumner residents are banding together to help restore pockets of native bush and bring bird life back to the area. Following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, a group of residents set up the Sumner Environment Group. Since then they have been working to restore local flora and fauna and reducing the number of pests and predators. One of the projects is the regeneration of Mahoe-nui Bush in conjunction with the city council and Forest & Bird. CULVERT WORK STARTED Work to repair an earthquakedamaged culvert on Main Rd, Moncks Bay, began on Monday. It is a three-month project, and contractors will be working on one side of the road near its intersection with Bay View Rd, followed by the other side. Two lanes would be maintained, but there would be lane shifts around the work site. TUNNEL ONE-WAY Lyttelton Tunnel will be reduced to one-way from Monday until July 15 from 9pm-6am. New Zealand Transport Agency will replace the centre line smart studs, clean the tunnel, replace its lighting and install air quality monitoring equipment.

Loons Theatre returns with world famous play The new Lyttleton Arts Factory will host a modern day interpretation of the 20th century production, Road.

By Siobhan Watson ONE OF the most popular plays of last century is being adapted by the Loons Theatre Trust for the first big production in its new venue. Road is written by English playwright Jim Cartwright. It was first produced in 1986 and was voted the 36th best 20th century play by the Royal National Theatre. Producer Darryl Cribb said the themes of the play have been adapted to reflect contemporary issues. ‘’Essentially you’re taken on a tour of a no-hope street by this vagrant character called Scullery and he introduces you to the characters on the street.’ “It is a story of a world that breeds Trump and Brexit . . . a world where the rich get richer and the poor get nowhere or drunk.’’

NEW ADDITION: Heathcote Valley Gallery owner Andrew Lyons sculpted a new moa out of timber for Redcliffs.

Return of the moa By Bridget Rutherford

SHOW TIME: Janice Gray puts on lipstick in preparation for the Loons Theatre Trust’s production of Road. ​

He said the story is about political upheaval and terrorism – issues that the world still faces. The show also includes some well known actors, such as Janice Gray and Tom Trevella. The play is being held in the

trust’s new venue, the Lyttleton Arts Factory, which it shares with Lyttleton Primary School. There was about 15 people acting in the show, which was a large number for the trust The play runs from July 13-23 at 7.30pm.

IT APPEARS the moa is not extinct in Redcliffs. Those who have walked along Main Rd may have noticed a new addition outside the old Mother Hubbard’s building – a 2.5m tall moa sculpture. Heathcote Valley Gallery owner Andrew Lyons sculpted the moa after being commissioned by the building owner, Peter Croft. There used to be a concrete and wire mesh moa sculpture outside

the building, but it was not weather proof, and fell to pieces. When Mr Croft owned the pharmacy, he used to have one of Mr Lyons’ sculptures – a rocking moa, which children used to ride. So he was the obvious choice to create a new moa. Mr Lyons said it was sculpted out of timber, and had a steel frame inside. This one, however, would not be suitable for children to ride, he said. “I hope the reaction’s positive.”

News Health battle for rugby star By Bridget Rutherford UTO ENOSI Tuipulotu came to Akaroa four years ago to get an education so he could support his family back in Tonga. But now he is in Christchurch Hospital battling a rare form of cancer. The 19-year-old had been having trouble with a racing heart while at rugby training, and went for a check-up. It was then when the doctor found a cancerous growth on his heart. The building apprentice is now in hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment. His former history teacher, Garry Brittenden, who helped bring him to New Zealand, has set up a Givealittle page to help raise money to bring his family over to be with him while he undergoes treatment. His father, Siaosi, arrived in Christchurch on Saturday, but his mother Lou, and his two brothers and sister are still to travel here.

Mr Brittenden said he worked extremely hard to gain NCEA levels one, two and three, so he could go on to get a job as a building apprentice. “It was just through bloody determination, he just put his head down, he’s a real role model,” he said. “He knew that this was his opportunity to help his family.” Uto joined the Akaroa Volunteer Fire Brigade while he was at school, and in 2014, made the New Zealand

A PROJECT to reseal Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s log storage area to create a fit for purpose all-weather yard is now complete. LPC’s 15,000 sq m log storage area in front of Norwich Quay was upgraded in four stages. The final stage of the project, covering 3000 sq m at the western end, was completed on schedule this month. Logs can now be stored up to 8m high increasing the site’s overall storage capacity from 10,000 Japanese agricultural standard to 12,000. Chief executive Peter Davie said the port now had an all-weather even surface to accept the 35-plus trucks accessing the site daily. “The community benefits through a better level of amenity off Norwich Quay and a significant reduction in dust as a result of the asphalt surface and through the dust suppression system that was installed,” said Mr Davie. “The upgrade offers significant environmental benefits due to the installation of a high quality storm water treatment system which ensures all water contaminates are captured and treated prior to discharge.” All construction works were subject to an Archaeological Authority issued by Heritage New Zealand.

TALENT: Uto Enosi Tuipulotu made the New Zealand Barbarians area schools rugby team in 2014, and played for Lincoln Colts this year. ​ The money raised would also go towards his ongoing medical costs. After six days, the page had raised more than $16,200. Mr Brittenden said he was “blown away” with the response. He said Uto was a real role model for the youth in Akaroa, and was loved by all. Uto moved to Akaroa to attend the area school for year 11. He stayed with various host families during his time.

Your Local Views Prevention key to safer communities National List MP Nuk Korako says we can help to make our communities safer LAST MONTH I went on an evening ride along with Alan and Paul from the City to Sumner Community Patrol. I took this opportunity to chat with them about recent media and Facebook reports of a spike in graffiti, vandalism and car thefts in parts of the Port Hills electorate. Reports like this are always unsettling; like everyone, I want my neighbourhood to be a place where my family and friends feel safe. That’s why preventing and reducing crime is a priority for both the Government and me personally. Part of the approach to building safer communities is prevention first. Since 2009 this Government has boosted the annual police budget by almost $200 million. That’s given us 600 more police, resulting in a record 8907 sworn officers. We’ve also Bay Harbour News asked its readers what they thought of Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s plan to dredge a deeper and wider navigation channel in the harbour Dr Darrell Latham, Sumner Community Residents’ Association – It is pleasing to note that the Lyttelton Port Company wish to consult with the community about the $80 – $120 million project to dig a deeper and wider navigation channel in Lyttelton Harbour. Chief executive Peter Davie wants the consents to be notified so that the public are able to have input into the project. Mr Davie says that “the plan is about future proofing the port.’’ Fair comment. However, from my perspective

Kids get a look at kits

put more police on our streets and deployed them more strategically so that they’re in areas and at times when police know there’s a greater risk of crime. The Government has also given police more time and more resources. By introducing smartphones and tablets for police officers, we’ve saved police 30min a shift in administration duties. That’s meant more time on the ground, which is equivalent to having about 345 extra frontline cops. Our local police are doing a great job, but there’s always plenty we can do at the flaxroots to look after each other. Groups like Neighbourhood Support and our community patrols are a great example of locals doing just this. Between policing and community efforts, I know we can keep our Port Hills community safe. we also need to ensure for the sake of our communities, our children and grandchildren that we “future proof’’ our ecology, environment and our coastline. We have wonderful beaches like Sumner and Brighton beach which are going to be in very close proximity (6.5km) to the proposed offshore dumping site. I am certain that Sumner residents and the wider Christchurch and Canterbury community will engage via consultative processes to ensure that our marine environment and beaches are not threatened. Yes, we do need to ensure that the LPC remains viable from a national and international perspective. Nonetheless, when it comes to dredging and dumping off shore

By Barbara Crooks, of Ferrymead Rotary MT PLEASANT School pupils played their favourite movie star to help cyclone-ravaged Pacific Islanders. During their day in character, the pupils raised $600 for a Rotary emergency response kit. The student council, which is asked to support many causes, decided to raise money for a Rotary ERK. Children paid to come to a “dress-up movie-day” as movie characters. The whole school took part. The student council topped up the mufti-day takings to the cost of a $600 ERK. As part of the school’s mission statement the pupils chose to raise money for another country in need. One of the Mt Pleasant School pupils related her experience of being in Fiji following the disaster and described a kindergarten that had been levelled. Emergency response kits contain 60 different items – including cooking utensils, cups, basic firstaid supplies, clothing, and basic tools, including fishing lines – so they can start to feed themselves again. The plastic boxes used to ship the items can be used for storage, or fitted with a tap to hold water. lets make sure that we tick all the boxes, do it once and do it right. Linwood College board of trustees chairman Dave Turnbull responds to Labour MP Ruth Dyson’s Soapbox column about the school’s rebuild: May I firstly thank Ruth Dyson for her supportive comments on Linwood College, published in last week’s edition of the Bay Harbour News. Ruth is absolutely correct in commenting on the collaboration between the school and its various communities in eastern Christchurch. The board has been part of the various issues facing the college over the last few years, and while not wanting to minimise these,

HELPING: Ferrymead Rotary members showed Mt Pleasant School pupils what their emergency response kit fundraiser bought. Pictured is Phoebe Hunt, Grace McGregor, Olivia Hawkes, Neve Ballin and Izzy Western. ​ The emergency materials enable a family to survive the immediate results of flood, tsunami or earthquake, until the house could be re-occupied. The ERK needs to be light enough to be transported quickly by air. As Cyclone Winston approached the South Pacific Islands, Rotary had positioned 1000 of the emergency kits in Fiji ready for speedy our determination now is to focus on the future, the rest of this year, next year, five years from now, and so on. We are of course excited about the opportunities a rebuilt Linwood College will provide our students and staff. Our task is to ensure we provide all of our young people in south-east Christchurch with first-class learning opportunities. For the board and the staff these are not simply lofty words. They are words which are backed up by actions, plans and most importantly, a very strongly held belief that every student, current and future, has a right to experience success in their learning. Coupled with the current very important community

transfer to wherever needed. By using a kit and a little ingenuity, a family can construct a basic shelter, clothe themselves and find food from land and sea for several days. The kits are designed to help the Pacific Islands cope with disasters. More kits were dispatched to Fiji, by the Royal New Zealand Air Force, following the devastating Cyclone Winston. consultation, are internal actions designed to focus on the progress and well-being of all students. Student pathways have assumed a position of prominence within the school. I would like to thank the principal and the staff for leading the school in its recovery. The unity of purpose within the school is very evident, and is being further enhanced by what is clearly considerable community interest in the future of Linwood College. My involvement with education has been long and varied, and without a doubt, working with Linwood College is a highlight. I have every expectation that parents will view Linwood College as their school of choice in south east Christchurch.

EATING IN STYLE: Nic Curragh’s work on Lyttelton’s Freemans Restaurant received an interior architecture award.​

Winning design WORK ON a Lyttelton restaurant and a Redcliffs home have been applauded at a regional architecture awards ceremony. The Canterbury-Westland Regional Architectural Awards were held on Friday. Nic Curragh, of Objects Ltd, received a commercial interior architectural de-

sign award for the work he carried out on Freemans Restaurant in Lyttelton. The three judges said it won the award for the material and detail used, and successful planning. Ben Brady, of Linetype Architectural, was commended for the alterations on a home in Redcliffs. The home, which was originally designed by

Don Cowey, was repaired, restored and renovated. The large garage was transformed into a studio, and the laundry was moved so the bathroom could be extended. The judges said the alterations were small and respectful, and extended the home’s longevity. The national awards will be held on October 28.

Fundraising for sailors Massive savings July 1st - 16th

By Bridget Rutherford A FUNDRAISER to help overseas seafarers who dock in Lyttelton Port will be held this weekend. Lyttelton Seafarers Centre is holding its fundraising evening on Saturday at Lyttelton Recreation Centre. The centre, which has been open for about a year, provides a space for overseas seafarers while they are docked. One of the centre’s man-

agers, Jessica Armstrong, said most of them came from Russia, Ukraine and the Philippines. The centre provides them with free wireless internet, sim cards so they can call their families, warm clothing, free food and the ability to change currencies, she said. “We’re trying to give them a nice place to be.” Mrs Armstrong said seafarers often worked long hours, some for very little pay.

The centre relied entirely on grants and donations, with just over 20 volunteers running it. The fundraiser will include a raffle and Scottish and Irish dancing performances, with everyone able to join in. Tickets for adults will cost $10, and a gold coin entry for children. They can be bought from the Lyttelton Information Centre, or via email lyttelton.seafarers.

Innovative teaching Diamond Harbour School has been allocated Government funding to trial innovative teaching approaches. The school and its partner, Kidsfirst Diamond Harbour Early Learning Centre, were allocated $49,900 for a project to learn mathematics. Selwyn MP Amy Adams said she was looking forward to seeing the results of the project, which was among 46 selected in the second round of the Teacher-led Innovation Fund. “This fund supports teachers’ bright ideas that evidence shows are working and can be shared across schools. “It is part of the Government’s $359 million Investing in Educational Success initiative, which aims to encourage collaboration between schools to enhance teaching practices and help Kiwi students achieve at even higher levels.” Meanwhile Darfield Primary School and its partner, Annabels Educare, will receive $79,500 for their project, which focuses on the transition between early childhood education and primary school, and how it affects literacy. Both projects are supported by Canterbury University and are for a term of two years. This round of the fund involves 114 schools and six early childhood education providers. About $3.6 million of the $18 million fund has been allocated. The next funding round will open in November.

Retiring after 27 years By Bridget Rutherford SHEILA ROBINSON has spent nearly 27 years teaching and caring for children in Redcliffs. But she served her last day at Moa Kids Community Early Learning Centre on Friday. It was the children and families in the area that she will miss the most in her retirement. “That’s been the best part and all the lovely families in Redcliffs. That’s what I’ve enjoyed.” Mrs Robinson started working at the centre as a reliever in 1990 when it was called Redcliffs-Sumner Community Creche. The role had been advertised in the newspaper. At that stage, it was in the old scout den in Barnett Park, before it moved to the old church hall in Augusta St, then back to its current spot in Barnett Park. “Things change over the years, don’t they?” she said.

“After the quakes, we did lose lots of families. Lots of families moved away. That was quite a sad time because you didn’t see them again. Some came back and some new people came so that was a big change.” Mrs Robinson has taught the parents of children who now go to the centre. At her farewell on Wednesday, a lot of children she had cared for and taught returned to say goodbye. She said working in a preschool required so much more than just teaching. “Early childhood is a lot of caring. They’ve got to feel secure and happy to want to learn. It’s not just about teaching, it’s also about self-help skills.” Centre manager Hayley Strachan said Mrs Robinson had a wide range of knowledge.

“She will be missed hugely by the children. She’s part of the furniture here.” Mrs Robinson said she will now use her time to visit her daughter and her two

grandchildren in the United Kingdom. But she was more than happy to offer help if the centre needed an “extra pair of hands”, she said.

Lyttelton pupils get all lit up EVERY YEAR, Lyttelton Primary School pupils look forward to the festival of lights event. This year, in collaboration with Project Lyttelton and the festival committee, the pupils were each given a length of LED lighting to sew onto a piece of clothing.

Science Alive taught Totara children (years 7 and 8) the process who in turn tutored Raupo children (years 5 and 6). The week before the festival, these children were buddied up with a pupil from Takaroa (children from years 1-4 ) to help them with their designing and sewing.

Lots of parents went along to help thread needles and tidy up loose ends. The lit-up pupils marched in the parade along London St, ending at Albion Square to sing a rendition of Fireflies, before going to watch the fireworks and enjoy the festival stalls.

A group of pupils created a sculpture of an octopus, or te wheke, using wire and plastic lit up by lights as part of the school’s enrichment programme. It then stood proudly on the edge of Collett’s Corner representing the school’s new logo.

Our People

A slice of Prague Heathcote Valley resident Maka Angyalova has recently opened the Bohemian Bakery in Sumner. Siobhan Watson talked to her about traditional bread making, the love of the outdoors and juggling a busy lifestyle Where did you live before coming to New Zealand? Do you miss anything? I lived in Prague from when I was about 20 in the Czech Republic, but I grew up in Slovakia. My mother is from the Czech Republic and my father is from Slovakia. I also spent about a year living in Rome. I really miss the skiing being 20 minutes away with four different ski fields to choose from. I miss the beauty of the surrounding architecture in Prague, but I don’t miss the mingling tourists that you can’t get past in the street. When I came to New Zealand I missed the sourdough bread. Back home it was very accessible for good quality bread but here it wasn’t. So I started to make it and gave it to friends. It is quite a complicated process if you want to do it at home all the time. What type of work did you do before you opened this bakery? I have a business degree and POPULAR: Maka Angyalova prepares sausage rolls. worked as a business analyst. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN In New Zealand, I got a job at a

ve Remo ells g sm n i k o co m! a e t s and

bakery and had the idea to start up a bakery using my business education and my baking interest. Why did you come to New Zealand and how long have you been here? I came on a work assignment. I was in an office in Auckland and I decided to stay a bit longer, and it has turned into about 11 years. What about New Zealand made you want to live here? I really liked the sea. We lived by the sea on the North Shore, Auckland, and my office was on the beach and I loved going for a swim at lunchtime because back in the Czech Republic and Slovakia it was about an eighthour drive to the sea. I love the country because I like biking and swimming and there is plenty of opportunity to do this here. Why did you choose to live in Christchurch? I spent two years in Auckland and now I’ve been here for nine years. I chose Christchurch because I met my partner Heath


in Auckland who was from here, so he really wanted to come back. We live in Heathcote Valley now and we love it. Have you always been interested in baking? My grandmother was an exceptional baker, she would bake traditional pastry for weddings, so I learnt from her as a child. I built a couple of outdoor woodfired ovens where I used to live and always explored the old-style of bread baking. I learnt a lot by building and baking in the oven and controlling the temperatures and learning how the sourdough reacts to timings and different temperatures in different environments. I’ve been trained in business so I never thought opening a bakery was possible. But then I kind of decided that’s what I wanted to do, and I spent a couple of years working in a bakery and the whole time I was thinking about how I’m going to start the business.

in Sumner’s bohemian baker

How did you go about starting up the bakery? I really wanted to stay local and be interested in the people in the area. But there’s quite a lot of competition in the Ferrymead area where we are, so I decided to go a bit further away, but not too far. Sumner has people that appreciate food and good things but they didn’t have a bakery, so I thought that would be a good opportunity. So I’d been looking for a strategical place for a few months and I came across a video shop that was closing and spoke to the landlord. I’m really grateful to the landlord for giving me the opportunity to change the shop into a bakery because it wasn’t easy and it wouldn’t have happened without his support. I always believed it would be a good place for a bakery, because it’s a busy area and I thought the bakery should be where people can walk to. So Sumner ticked all the boxes. It took two months of renovation to change the video shop into a bakery. We ripped up carpets and changed the electricity to make sure the big oven had enough power, so there has been quite a lot of hurdles to jump through. Has it been successful so far?

CONVERTED: Sumner’s Bohemian Bakery is sited in an old video hire premises.

I had my expectations about the sales – and it has been at the top of what I expected. We are kind of getting to know the people that come often and know what they want. I just wanted it to be a village bakery that is in touch with people who can see how things are done. We’ve been told it’s hard to start in winter in Sumner, but we had a rocket start and we’ve been stretched out to capacity on the weekends. In the future, I’d like to have an ordering system so people can order in the morning and we can put the

breads aside. What are the most popular foods so far in your bakery? Our sourdough bread has been sold out most days and then the sausage rolls have been a big hit – one lady came in and said her husband was in love with the sausage rolls. We make it in a different style than in New Zealand. Instead of wrapping it in a puff pastry we wrap it into a bread roll with cheese and mustard. The walnut baguettes on the weekends have been popular, people come back for them again and

again. And pretzels, kids love the pretzels. So it kind of depends on the time of the day and time of the week. What other interests do you have aside from baking and business? At the moment I’ve been working about 12 to 14 hours a day, so my interests are basically nonexistent. Before that I loved running and cycling and I did some triathlons and loved the outdoors, but then I had three little children so whatever spare time I have I spend with them, doing

what they want to do. I have an eight-year-old son named Max, a four-year-old son named Luc and a two-year-old son named Tom. And reading, I used to love reading, now it’s basically work, sleep and drop the kids at school. I played soccer, but I haven’t played for a few weeks now. I belong to the Ferrymead Bays Football Club so I have a lovely soccer team here but I don’t see them too often anymore. I play as a defender and I only started playing last year and I started because my son was really into me playing soccer so I still keep on going. It’s really social and it’s a good support network. Even for starting the business, the girls will give me some advice and come here and be the customer. But it’s good exercise as well and a really good excuse to be active. Do you have staff at the bakery and what time do you have to get up in the mornings? We start anytime between 2am and 4am. And I have a fantastic baker from Sri Lanka who looks after the products. I have a shop assistant who knows most of the people who come in. And a few young girls from Sumner doing some weekend work when we are busy.

Sumner’s try scoring No 8 Fraser Walker-Pearce It has been a season to remember for Sumner No 8 Dylan Nel. The South African-born import has racked up 10 tries so far this season. He holds third place in the Hawkins Division 1 Cup competition’s top try scoring ladder. Nel scored his latest two tries against Shirley on Saturday as the sea-siders cruised past their opposition 41-7. “The first one was about 30m out, I broke through and scored in the corner. And the second one was off a scrum, the boys made a good platform and I had a basic pick and go which got me over the line. A good team try,”

he said. Last month, Nel was one of six Sumner players picked to trial for the Canterbury ITM Cup squad, a goal he had been gunning for the whole season. Before his time at Sumner, Nel played for the under-21 Sharks squad in Durban. But on the advice of new Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson, he packed his boots and came to Christchurch to further his career. “Razor (Robertson) saw some of my video clips and that I wasn’t getting much game time over there, so he gave me the opportunity (to come here) and I haven’t looked back. The Sumner

selectors for both South Africa and New Zealand came knocking, he said he would struggle with the decision.

Redcliffs tennis tops in awards Fraser Walker-Pearce Redcliffs Tennis Club members were recognised recently for their success and contribution to a club recovering from the damage of the earthquakes. President Dianne France was awarded volunteer administrator of the year and Evie Ruegg was named club coach of the year at the recent Tennis Canterbury Awards evening. The club’s senior mixed team also received an award for win-

ning their grade in the inter-club competition. The team is the first in Redcliffs history to do so. Ms France said that although she was excited to receive the award, she accepted it on behalf of the club. “I was delighted that people from the club had nominated me, but I wasn’t looking for the profile. When I went up, it was for the club. What drives me is the connection in the community,” she said. Ms France was president of

the club from 1981 to 1983, but stopped her involvement for more than 20 years, until the February 22, 2011, earthquake struck. She got back on board and voluntarily project-managed the reinstatement of the club’s courts by applying for community grants worth more than $200,000. “After the earthquake, I knew I had to do something to get it back . . . In the earthquake, the courts were destroyed and had to be reinstated under difficult conditions,” she said.

Ms France was re-elected as the club’s president in 2013, when the club had lost nearly 100 junior members. She puts the club’s revitalisation down to “a tennis minded community” that was willing to get on board. RECOGNITION: Redcliffs Tennis Club president Dianne France with Tennis Canterbury general manager Hamish Cain. Ms France received the volunteer administrator of the year award.

From the Garden of Eden to Abbey Road and Silicon Valley, apples have been an enduring motif for our cultural journey. Like William Tell and Sir Isaac Newton before him, Ashley Smith, in this show, uses apples to his own ends. Some samples from this tasty crop may very well keep the doctor away - but, then again, there could be something decidedly sinister under the skin of that rosy red apple being offered. Artist, Ashley Smith escaped into the wilds of coastal North Canterbury over 30yrs ago and still finds fascination in its rural myths and practices. Canterbury’s often crazy weather patterns also continue to influence his paintings ( and mental ‘The Apple of His Eye’ original painting by Ashley Smith juices). Ashley’s subjects are rendered in a variety of styles – many honed during extensive global meanderings. During these he has worked for publishers in Australia, England and America, studied batik in Indonesia, been a member of the Stuttgard Art Society and met his future wife in the 602 Club, Madison Wisconsin!

Travel Falling for a girl named Tinkerbell By Barry Clarke DON’T TELL the wife but I’ve fallen for a girl called Tinkerbell. She’s 26, has a smile and eyes I’ll never forget, has beautiful sleek lines, and amazing skin. And, I have to admit I got close up and personal with Tinkerbell at Tangalooma Resort on Moreton Island, about an hour’s ferry trip from Brisbane during a weekend away from home. All sound a bit fishy? You’re right. Tinkerbell is of course a wild dolphin, and a magnificent one at that. But then they all are. She’s part of a pod of wild dolphins that come to the island around the same time every night to be fed by the tourists. It’s a fantastic experience. Qantas now has three return flights from Christchurch-Brisbane a week. If you’re going to Brisbane don’t just think only of the traditional nearby must-visit spots of the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast. Because Moreton Island is a gem. There is the day trip option on the ferry and while heading across you’re likely to see pods of dolphins. The ferry returns after dolphin feeding time by the main jetty on the island. If you’re staying overnight or for a few days the accommodation is very good, and affordable. The food is what you’d expect – great. Fire and Stone restaurant (Chinese) is a must. There’s scuba diving around a shipwreck, quad biking, sand hill tobogganing (not for the fainthearted) in what is known as the desert, sailing, and fishing. If you want something more leisurely there’s plenty of good walking, and beachside cafes to sit and sup on a coffee or something stronger. But more on those dolphins. They have been arriving at Tangalooma for decades, which is one of the few places in the world that you can wade out and

hand-feed dolphins. There are fairly strict guidelines to keep them safe – you must wash your hands before wading out, and you are not allowed to touch them in case they catch an infection. If you have a cold or the flu you are told not to go near them. The dolphins first came to prominence in the late 1970s when the current owners of the resort, the Osbornes, would visit the island. Lights had just been installed on the jetty, which attracted bait fish which the dolphins were feeding on.

The Osbornes bought the resort in 1980 and they began to identify and name the dolphins that came in at different times after sunset. They named the most regular Eric. But when Eric arrived with a calf one year, they renamed her Beauty, who is the lineage of the pod that arrives today, including Tinkerbell, who now has her own offspring. During the 1980s, tourists would throw fish to Beauty. Initially, she rejected the fish, but slowly she started to accept the offerings. She would raise her eyes above

the water and look for tourists. The Osbornes became concerned about the quality of the fish being fed to Beauty, so they would leave a bucket of fresh fish on the jetty each night for the tourists to feed Beauty. In late 1990 Beauty arrived with a new baby and she was named Tinkerbell. Just over a year later the Osbornes tried hand-feeding Beauty. It worked; she showed no signs of stress and the rest is history. Tangalooma installed a new jetty and grandstand and now has a Dolphin Education Centre staffed by marine biologists. Brisbane itself is now a very busy city of just over two million people, and a lot different to the place I last visited several years ago. The Brisbane river is flanked by great bars and cafes, there’s a fabulous bike tour (Brisbane By Bicycle) and fantastic night kayak tours on the river. You have to be reasonably fit for the 90min kayak but it’s

Beating the winter blues as we head towards winter with shorter days and cooler weather, many of us start to feel less energetic, perhaps a little down or maybe you get more moody than usual. Take heart you are not alone. For many people, seasonal changes impact our mood, health, sleep and general behaviour in some very stormy ways. Seasonal affective Disorder (SaD) often thought of as an “energy crisis,” may affect up to 6 percent of the population, while 10 percent to 20 percent of the population may experience a milder form called the “winter blues.” From the flu, cravings for sweets and starchy foods, weight gain, feeling heavy in the arms or legs, depression and a conspicuous drop in energy to fatigue, oversleep, concentration difficulties, hopelessness and constant agitation and anxiety, SaD typically begins as the days become shorter and peaks in mid-winter. Couple that with an increase in carbohydrate loading common during the winter months, and it makes for an unhappy season. There’s a clear link between the quantity of sunlight available to us during this time of the year and our biological performance. you may think of SaD as a form of jet lag, research found that shorter days in the autumn and winter along with a delayed dawn causes us to drift out of a normal sleep-wake cycle, as if we travelled across many time zones. other research suggests that decreasing levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin due to a lack of sunlight during autumn and winter,

changes in circadian rhythm and a genetic predisposition, are all culprits of this disorder. There are some steps you can take to help combat the winter blues. Sticking to our fitness routines during this time of the year can be a major challenge – whether it’s due to SaD, the flu, frigid outside temperatures, the common cold, sleep difficulties. It may well be the most difficult time of year to stay on top of fitness and health, but it’s also the time we need it most. How can you keep your fitness at its peak when you need it most during these shorter days and longer nights? 1. The link is in what you think. Think about what can go right, the advantages of using this time of year to reach your fitness goals? Increase your self-efficacy, your confidence in your ability to stick with exercise during this challenging period by avoiding negative, erroneous thoughts about yourself. you Can do it. Call on your past successes, get in a class or watch a video of others who are successfully working out, be sure you are open to the encouragement you get from others and give to yourself, and have plans in place to avoid the lapses that sometimes come at this time of the year. 2. Time to try something new? Doesn’t the crisp cool air surrounding a heated pool sound good to you? It’s time to hit the slopes

and do some skiing and snowboarding. Cycling or hiking can be invigorating on a cool day amid the falling leaves, mountain paths and even alongside an empty beach. With suitable layered clothing, a hat, adequate fluid levels and using caution where you exercise, fall and winter outdoor activities can be revitalizing. 3. Think “activity and movement” more than “exercise.” How can you increase the intensity of daily activity in your routine? Don’t just watch your kids practice their sport, walk across that bridge to work, resist the shortcut, walk to dinner and take two steps at a time. 4. move it indoors. Colder weather is never an excuse to avoid exercise and healthy activity. Portable, versatile exercise equipment is easily available, as are challenging DVD

programs and in-home or office routines that feature exercises such as pushups, chair dips, squats and lunges. you can also turn some of your household chores (sweeping, scrubbing, vacuuming and raking) into workouts.


Wednesday July 6 2016 [Edition datE]




Get educated, get empowered and

get motivated It’s all too easy to hibernate winter away, enjoying comfort food as you avoid the bad weather and think that you’ll start a diet to get ready for summer sometime soon. However the team at The apothecary at The tannery believe nothing should get in the way of educating ourselves to a healthy lifestyle and achieving the right weight for us. Their six week course – Weight loss 101 – runs for an hour every Wednesday evening starting on 20th July. Its aim is to teach the science that lies behind managing weight so that we can make choices about what we eat that are informed, rather than relying on sound bites and gossip about the latest trendy diet. They cover topics such as what macro and micro nutrients are and the benefits and drawbacks of each; the importance of regulating blood sugar and how it actually affects your body; how the body works, and how it is affected by what we eat. The course is highly motivational and run in a supportive group environment which helps keep those attending on their toes, and the facilitators are highly trained professionals who know how to make this topic interesting and relevant to you and

your lifestyle. The Internet is full of tips and short cuts on the latest ways to lose weight, but Weight loss 101 gives you the knowledge to be able to separate the fads that are founded in fact from those that are no more than a gimmick. You will learn how to manage your weight effectively so that once it’s been lost, it stays lost. It is not about going on a diet - it’s about learning what a healthy diet is and the difference it can make to you, your energy and your whole attitude to life. Because they know that the course is packed full of useful information, a course booklet is provided
