Principal replacement deadline „„ By Annabelle Dick LYTTELTON PRIMARY School has to appoint a new principal by November 26 to replace the departing principal Diana Feary. Mrs Feary announced her resignation two weeks ago. The school is now looking for a successor by late November to take the reigns as principal in 2017. Mrs Feary’s last day is January 26 and a new principal has to be appointed at least two months before the existing principal

leaves as part of the Employment Relations Act 2000. Board of Trustees chairwoman Bridget O’Brien said they’re now in the process of searching for a new principal but the role has not yet been advertised. “We’re already under way with the principal recruitment process. The board had a meeting on Monday night to start the planning for recruiting a new principal,” she said. “We’re aiming to get it in the New Zealand Education Gazette

in early October and applications will close on October 17.” Vice principal Bernice Swain is also leaving the school and handed her notice in last week. The departure of two of the school’s senior management staff has left the school with a lone vice principal Jeremy Orczy leading into next year. Mrs Feary will take a gap year while Mrs Swain will go on to teach at Haeata Community Campus in Aranui next term. Mrs O’Brien said Mrs Feary

The school won’t be replacing Mrs Swain as vice principal and her management duties will be spread across other staff. “One of the reasons we had two vice principals is because we were operating across two sites until term two this year and we needed management on both sides. Now we’re on the one side we feel that one vice principal is sufficient,” Mrs O’Brien said. Mrs Swain will finish at the end of this term and a fixed-term teacher will step in to cover.

had been planning on leaving after the merger between Lyttelton Main School and Lyttelton West was complete. Said Mrs O’Brien: “Now the transition is complete she feels like now is the right time to move on and somebody else take over the reigns. She’s been planning this for over a year now that she would see it through to the end of this year.” She also said the reports of bullying at the school weren’t related to her resignation.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK JACK LOPAS has a huge rowing future ahead of him and Bridget Rutherford profiles the Little River 17-year-old on pages 10-11. He’s back from the Netherlands where he won gold at the junior world champs – just in time for his NCEA exams at Christchurch Boys’ High School. Lopas has a huge amount of natural sporting talent, and also has rowing in his genes. But what separates the champions from the pack is the willingness and determination to go that bit further in training, and of course that extra percentage up top. On another note, it appears our front page article last week on the coastal hazards LIM issue has had an impact on city hall. They’ve delayed their latest course of action and will now meet with the group fighting this huge issue. See page 3. – Barry Clarke

News Hope for LIM report saga

In Brief BUS SHELTER A bus shelter will be installed on Norwich Quay. A new bus stop location was approved in June and the shelter will now be installed as well. The bus stop and shelter will be installed adjacent to 25 Norwich Quay and will replace the existing bus stop on Norwich Quay opposite Dublin St. It will cost about $9000 to build and install the shelter which should be in place within the next three months.

Latham to meet again with Dalziel „„ By Annabelle Dick Mayor Lianne Dalziel has agreed to meet further with the group campaigning against flood and erosion data on property LIM reports. She will sit down with Christchurch Coastal Residents United spokesman Dr Darrell Latham (right) within the next fortnight. Ms Dalziel has asked the group to work with the city council on changing the Coastal Hazards Assessment Report. “We had a conversation with the mayor about the whole coastal hazards process. As a result of that meeting we are now looking forward to the review of the coastal hazards chapter and working in a collaborative and consultative way with the mayor and council,” he said. The original report found a number of coastal homes are at risk of erosion and flooding and that information has

DAMAGED WALL A structural assessment will be done on concrete blocks and fencing surrounding a damaged wall next to the Gaol Steps. The steps lead from St David St to Oxford St near Lyttelton Primary School. The obstacles take up to 50 per cent of the pavement space and it is of concern as many children go past the wall. The Ministry of Education own the damaged wall and it will be assessed before removing the concrete blocks and fence as it could be unsafe to stand uncovered. gone on homeowners’ LIM reports. A review panel urged the city council to remove it and undertake more research because the maps identifying 18,000 at-risk properties could be legally unsound.

Court repair concerns

AT WORK: Fire officers cordon off the campervan after it was blown off the road near Little River last Wednesday evening PHOTO: DAVID IRVING ​

Couple escape unhurt after campervan overturns „„ By Annabelle Dick AN AUSTRALIAN couple had a lucky break after escaping from their campervan which overturned in strong winds on State Highway 75. The pair were travelling to Akaroa when strong gusts blew their campervan off the road last Wednesday at about 10pm. Little River Volunteer Fire Brigade chief fire officer David Irving said the couple were

travelling to Akaroa on the last day of their holiday when the incident happened. “The wind caught their campervan, put it up on two wheels and they didn’t have enough road to wrestle it back down so it was blown off the road,” he said. Three volunteer fire officers attended the scene between Graylees Rd and Kaituna Valley Rd. The couple weren’t injured but the campervan has been written off.

„„ By Annabelle Dick NEARLY SIX years after the February 22 earthquake, the Lyttelton Tennis Club is still trying to get its damaged courts repaired and up to working order. The club has significant court surface damage and a retaining wall that needs to be fixed so the members can have proper access to the club’s facilities. Club president Jillian Frater raised her concerns to the Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board about the repairs and the possibility of progressing them. “It’s been an ongoing, long process and we wanted to make sure that they were still considering it,” she said. One of the two court surfaces is cracked and the bank behind it has slumped onto the courts both as a result of the 2011 earthquake and subsequent storms. The steps to the clubroom has also been fenced off for the past three years and only once the other retaining wall is repaired can work on the steps and court begin. “The retaining wall is a priority as it influences the use of the stairs. They fenced them off a couple of years ago and we haven’t been able to use them but

munity Board chairwoman Paula Smith said at the time they heard from Ms Frater, the board heard from the capital programme who fix retaining walls in Lyttelton. “They agreed to go have a look at it and they’re probably going to include that in their programme but I haven’t heard a confirmation of that. But staff are now aware of the problem and are working on it,” Ms Smith said. The community board has requested city council staff update the board regularly on progress with outstanding issues raised in regards to the tennis courts.

Big claims for mileage „„ By Annabelle Dick and Bridget Rutherford MORE THAN $30,000 has been claimed by city councillors and community board members in mileage this term and that figure is likely to increase considerably. Community board members and a city councillor representing Banks Peninsula made up the majority of those who claimed back their mileage costs over the past three years. Representatives from the Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board and the Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board have claimed $33,079.31 in mileage payment. Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board chairwoman Pam Richardson got $11,468 back from the city council, which made up a third of the total claims. Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board chairwoman Paula Smith came in second at $7819, while Banks Peninsula city councillor Andrew Turner claimed $6868. City councillors and community board members can claim back 74c for every kilometre they travel over 30km when they are going to and from council or board business in their own vehicles.

Pam Richardson

Banks Peninsula representatives have to drive further to get to council-related meetings, because the wards cover a larger area. As wards have changed with the representation review, the two Banks Peninsula community boards will become one and meetings will be held at Lyttelton’s new boardroom. Mrs Richardson, who lives in Pigeon Bay, and serves on the Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board, said with the two boards merging after October’s elections, the amount of travel would increase.

“For prospective members it will be considerably more travel,” Mrs Richardson said. Ms Smith, who lives in Diamond Harbour, won’t be standing in the next local body elections but she said mileage costs will increase for both the city council and the board members. “It will increase and so will the cost to the elected representatives and their families because the rules set means you only get reimbersed for the mileage you do over 30km. For example I do about $8000 worth of mileage but there’s a big proportion I’m paying myself because my journeys are less than 30km,” she said. Remuneration and expenses, including mileage, are set by the Remuneration Authority and the city council provides the appropriate support. Of the 28 community board representatives and 13 city councillors in the city, only five board members and two city councillors claimed their mileage back, in total costing the city council $33,990. Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board members Lyndon Graham and Janis Haley claimed $5431 and $1490 respectively.

OFFICIALLY OPEN: New World Ferry Rd was opened by Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson (left) and members of the Boock family, Oliver Gardiner, Greg Boock, Lily, Macy, Hunter and Rebecca. The store has been built next to the old one, near the Woolston shops. It has taken a year to rebuild and, once the old store is demolished, there will also be more car parks. Owner-operator Greg Boock said the store is in “fantastic shape” and he was pleased to open it to shoppers for the first time.

Harbour will be monitored before proposed dredging „„ By Annabelle Dick WATER QUALITY monitoring is underway for the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s proposed dredging project. The $3 million operation began in Lyttelton Harbour on Friday in what is the largest environmental monitoring programme ever undertaken for a dredging project in New Zealand. LPC is proposing to dredge the shipping channel so larger container ships can visit the port. The proposal is still waiting on resource consent from the city council. LPC will install 14 water quality buoys and monitoring equipment on the sea floor throughout the harbour, Port Levy and offshore marine areas to capture live information. Water clarity, pH level, temperature and nutrient levels will be measured and a summary of the data will be sent to a website every 15 minutes. LPC chief executive Peter Davie said information from the sites will enable the proposed dredging operations to be constantly managed. “While the company is committed to future-proofing

the port to secure Lyttelton’s future as the South Island’s major international trade gateway, we will not do this at the expense of our environmental responsibilities,” he said. The buoys will collect

information for at least one year prior to dredging, during the proposed dredging and for a period after it has finished. LCP will lodge its dredging consent application later this month.

Dr Tim Lindley For Heathcote Community Board

I have volunteered extensively in communities: • For three years I chaired the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group. • For six years I volunteered as a support person for St Ambrose Church, cafe, and food bank, Aranui. • Before that I was on the vestry of All Saints Church Sumner and ran fundraisers to support stop abuse and overseas aid programmes. A vote for Tim is a vote for a community board that understands the diverse communities in its area and gets things done.

Options investigated to deal with slow tourists „„ By Annabelle Dick AKAROA residents frustrated by tourist drivers may get some relief soon as options are investigated for slow vehicles. The New Zealand Transport Agency is looking at locations for pull-off areas and slow vehicle bays near the Hilltop area after a petition was sent to the agency in a bid to make State Highway 75 more user-friendly. Petition organiser Marie Haley, of Goughs Bay, said residents have endured years of frustration over road conditions and slow drivers between Akaroa and Little River. “It came about because each summer there’s a lot of very slow tourists on the roads. There’s a lot of tourist buses and vehicles on State Highway 75 and nowhere for them to pull over and let people pass,” Ms Haley said. Residents want to see sealed shoulders and driving courtesy signs introduced to allow tourists to pull over and let others pass. NZTA traffic and safety manager Tony Spowart said while he recognised residents’ frustration, drivers should be aware that this is a route often travelled by tourists. “The average time between Little River and Akaroa is around

30 minutes, with 85 per cent of journeys completed under 37 minutes. This is considered a safe and reasonable journey time given the hilly terrain and need for all drivers to take care,” he said. “We understand that local drivers who know this road well sometimes get held up behind people who are new to this part of the country, or who may be diverted by the scenery. While this can be frustrating, it is relatively temporary and for everyone’s safety and enjoyment of the Banks Peninsula area, we encourage all drivers to slow down and be patient.” The Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board is backing the petition and the city council will discuss it at its September 15 meeting.

Bodybuilder turns pro

STRIKE AS POSE: Dan Gerrard posed on stage to win an international competition after only one year on the circuit.

„„ By Annabelle Dick A FERRYMEAD fitness model has graduated from amateur to professional competitions after taking out his category at an international bodybuilding event. F45 Training Ferrymead manager Dan Gerrard, 23, won the fitness category at the Pan Pacific Championships/NZ International Pro Am and received a pro-card, meaning he’s now considered a World Fitness Federation pro athlete. “It was really interesting. I did things a bit differently; I had a big focus on work and the stuff I was doing for F45 so I was just trying to enjoy the process a lot more and it paid off,” he said. The competition incorporated bodybuilding, figure and fitness and was held in Auckland recently. The win now means Gerrard will be able to compete alongside top bodybuilders from around the world. “Competing as an amateur, it’s all self-funded and you’re doing it for yourself. Whereas, as a pro athlete, I would only be able to enter against other professionals in shows and there’s more monetary value involved,” he said. Gerrard has been training in

the gym since he was 16 and has spent the last year prepping and competing in bodybuilding, figure and fitness events as a male sports model. Gerrard initially trained in karate but an injury put him out of practice so he decided to use fitness bodybuilding as a competitive outlet. “It was never a goal to get on stage and compete, but I was competing in karate and I got injured in 2014 and that ended my competing. So when I was going through the rehab process, setting goals to do a competition, that was what got me motivated and back on track,” he said. His first show was the Christchurch Grand Prix, where he won his category and qualified for the Southern Hemisphere Championships earlier this year. Gerrard also qualified for Mr Universe but didn’t have the freedom or support to go to the United States for the competition. His also competed in the Southern Hemisphere Championships on the Gold Coast in June this year, where he came second overall. Gerrard plans to travel to Asia and Australia to follow the bodybuilding circuit.

UNKNOWN FATE: A decision on the future of Yew Cottage has been delayed. PHOTO: AKAROA CIVIC TRUST

Brakes put on sale of Yew Cottage „„ By Annabelle Dick A DECISION on the fate of Yew Cottage has been delayed yet again to give city council staff more time to explore uses for the building. The matter was discussed last Thursday at a city council meeting where the Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board put forward their recommendation of retaining the building for community purposes. The property’s condition is deteriorating and needs about $200,000 of work done. City council staff had proposed consulting the public about selling the building on the

open market, with a covenant on the property to protect its heritage values, but the community board was reluctant to take that step. The board instead recommended the city council delay a decision until city council staff have worked with the Akaroa community and groups to identify future uses for the building. The city council accepted the board’s recommendation. Yew Cottage dates back to 1877. It was bought by the former Banks Peninsula District Council in 1981 to ensure it was not demolished. Akaroa is home to around 280 colonial buildings.

New community board headquarters opened „„ By Annabelle Dick THE LYTTELTON-MT Herbert Community Board has moved to its new premises but it’s not all new – the board room features a piece of Banks Peninsula history. The board formally opened the new Lyttelton community board room and a big oval table used by the former Banks Peninsula District Council takes centre stage. Board members farewelled the old room at 15 London St. They held a walking parade on the way to the new room at 25 Canterbury

St last Wednesday. The board has been using the 15 London St room to hold meetings since earthquake damage forced the closure of the Lyttelton Service Centre. The new room was blessed and a speech was given by the board’s longest standing member, Ann Jolliffe. The room also hosts a sideboard and a Maori carving which belonged to the Banks Peninsula District Council. The boardroom will be available for community use.

MARKET MILESTONE: It’s been 11 years since the Lyttelton Farmers’ Market began and the affair was celebrated in style with a steampunk-themed market. Residents were invited to come to the market in full steampunk or Victorian costume on Saturday, September 3. The market began in 2005 and is a not-for-profit enterprise run by Project Lyttelton and volunteers. More than 40 vendors operate at the market, supplying the area with fresh fruit, veges, baked goods, craft beer, fish, poultry and game.

Our People

World champion junior rower Little River’s Jack Lopas has just returned from the Junior World Rowing Championships with a gold medal hanging around his neck, and he is straight into NCEA exams. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about beating his crewmate at Maadi Cup, and holding the unofficial national record for his 2km ergometer So you’ve just won gold in the double sculls– how does it feel to be a world champion? I’ve actually been asked that a lot, but it’s kind of hard because it doesn’t really feel that much different. It’s a funny feeling thinking you’re the top in the world in your event. Can you run me through the race? It was really rough at race time, so we had to take that into account. We’ve always been a bit slower off the start, so we just stuck to our guns and focused on our middle kilometre. We took the lead in the third 500m just after the 1km mark, which is where we wanted that to happen. What was running through your mind at the start line, were you nervous? I was the most nervous in the heats because you don’t know what to expect. I was a bit shaky, and with the rough conditions ACHIEVEMENT: Jack Lopas, 17, has represented New Zealand it was another thing resting on in rowing twice and hopes to compete at the Olympics. your mind. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN What about when you crossed

GOING FOR GOLD: Jack Lopas and Lenny Jenkins racing in the Junior World Rowing Championships. PHOTO: ROWING NEW ZEALAND

the finish line? It was a huge relief for all that stress to be over and not having to worry about the result. It was a pretty unreal feeling. It’s painful during the race but after winning you feel like it wasn’t too bad and it was all worth it. So this is your second year of competing at juniors? Yep, I was in the reserve double

last year. We still raced and got second in the B final. It was good motivation to come back this year, and it makes it a lot easier racing once you’ve done it already. You have a bit more experience. When did you begin rowing? I started at the end of third form. I’ve done four years of it now.

has eye on future Olympics So you were at Lincoln High School before shifting to Christchurch Boys’ High School, why the shift? It was for the rowing – I was the only rower at Lincoln, so I was doing it once a week down at Kerrs Reach with one other. I started at boys’ high in 2013 – in year 10. My mum and dad both rowed and I have a couple of uncles who did, and my granddad rowed for New Zealand. So I thought I might do it. I enjoyed doing it by myself, but I felt like I needed to be doing it with a group. My parents both rowed at club level and got a couple of national medals. And you would have been to a couple of Maadi Cups, how did you go in those? I’ve been to three. I didn’t make Maadi in my first year. But in my first season competing I got a bronze in the under-16 quadruple sculls and then the next year I got silver in the under-17 double sculls, under-17 quadruple sculls and in the under-18 quadruple sculls. In my last season this year, I got gold in the under-18 single, double and quad, and a bronze in the under-18 eight. At Maadi the under-18 eights are the big races to win – which medal did you enjoy winning the most?

I think the quad. I was the most excited after winning it because it’s a group of four mates who train together the whole season. And you’re the national record holder for your age group for the 2km erg, that’s pretty impressive, what was your time? I don’t know if it’s actually official, but I pulled 5min 57sec. I’ve always progressed with each erg, I’ve never gone backwards. You beat Olympic champion Hamish Bond’s time didn’t you? I pulled faster than Hamish Bond’s time when he was my age. I think Eric Murray and Hamish Bond pull around the 5min 42sec mark. So you’re from Little River

aren’t you? Yes, I live about 4km from the township on a lifestyle block. I actually went into Little River School when I got back, because my mum teaches there and had been keeping the kids updated. I went in and had a chat to all the kids and took in my medal. I went there from year 1-8, and my younger brother is still there. How many siblings do you have? I’ve got an older sister and three younger brothers. We are quite a big rugby family, all of my brothers made Ellesmere representative teams and two of them made Canterbury Country teams. Do you play rugby yourself?

SCIRT programme on the home straight SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December. The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood • The Beachville Road Seawall in Redcliffs is now complete with the roading due to finish by mid October.

• Governors Bay water main repairs were completed in August. • Lyttelton is still busy with ongoing retaining wall repairs, underground pipe and roading repairs will continue through to the end of the year.

• Work on Evans Pass retaining wall has started with rock stabilisation, and will be finished by December. • The large project in Mt Pleasant and Heathcote repairing wastewater, storm water and roading is due to be completed by November. Your support is helping us to get the job done. Thank you from the SCIRT team. Programme funded by

I used to play, last year was the first year since I was four that I haven’t played because I couldn’t due to juniors. I did miss it, I was watching all of my brothers’ games. I was playing prop in the boys’ high 16As before I stopped playing. And by the sound of your training schedule you will be eating your mum out of house and home, how much do you have to eat to fuel your body? She does notice the difference. But I have three brothers so they eat a lot too. You just have to chuck in more pasta and potatoes. Up north we would eat two breakfasts and a full lunch and a big dinner, then a couple

of extra bits in the middle, like a banana and honey sandwich or something. So what about your double partner, did you know him before this year? I met him last year at Maadi, he beat me in all three of those events I got silver in. He was in juniors last year as well. But I versed him this year at Maadi and beat him in all three events and he got silver in all of them. So it was quite funny. What are your goals with rowing? I think one day I do want to compete at Olympics but that’s quite a few years away and there’s a long road ahead. So you’re in your last year of school currently, have you decided what you will do when you finish? I think I’ll focus on this next rowing season, and make a decision then. And when you’re not rowing, or training or at school, what you like to do in your spare time? I do a lot of work for granddad in Clarkville, just helping him out. And hanging out with my brothers – I try to get to as much of their sport as I can, because they make it to mine. But between school and rowing, there’s not a lot of spare time.

Your Local Views Learn the boating rules „„ BY GARY MANCH, NAVIGATIONAL SAFETY OFFICER, LYTTELTON THIS IS probably the quietest time of the year on the recreational boating front, and at the risk of repeating myself a thousand times it becomes harder and harder to write something that you may be interested in. However, as I never have been known to be short of words, I thought this week we would talk about something close to my heart and you will hopefully go away thinking “you know he is right”. When I retired from my old job and started with the Harbourmaster as navigation safety officer, I had this vision that I would be out there on a mission to get people to comply with our boating rules and reduce deaths, injuries, and complaints, and it would be easy. Well, guess what, it wasn’t, like anyone contemplating a mission you need to get your ducks in row first and figure out how the campaign is going to commence. I can honestly say when I started that I did not realise

free!

Pirate’s Corner

how many waterways and water users we have in Canterbury, our region is over 25,000 sq km, and we have many lakes, foreshores and rivers that in excess of 11 per cent of New Zealand’s recreational boat users enjoy. Up to 48,000 Cantabrians use some form of vessel in my area. So, getting back to the mission in hand, my aim was and still is, to reduce the amount of deaths, injury and reported incidents on our waterways. However, the job is bigger than I thought initially, I have two ways to achieve this, education, or enforcement, research shows that in any form of compliance work education does not always work alone and you need an enforcement component to go with this.

Enforcement can range from warnings to hefty fines. I would love to prove to the researchers that education can work alone, and this is where you guys and girls come in. Learn the boating rules, comply with them, then I won’t get complaints or people hurting or even worse killing themselves or others, it is a really simple solution but hard to achieve, as we still have people in everything from rowing skiffs to powerboats who either think the rules, like wearing lifejackets, keeping our speed down, do not apply to them, in turn putting either themselves and their passengers or crews at risk. I think that it’s a no-brainer, learn the rules and be a safe boat user, bloody simple really. Have a great day.

Choose from an extensive range of colours, including our whites and neutrals and fashion colour collections.

Bill Patterson – There are three things wrong with Lake Forsyth including Lake Ellesmere. 1 – Too many cooks. 2 – Failed to control the wild fowl who excrete far more than the stock over or in the lakes. No doubt stock excrete more on the land which is washed into those streams, waterways and rivers with the Peninsula having more than enough rainfall,  besides stock spend little time at the lakes edge. 3 – Can`t read the weather patterns, thus failing  to keep the lakes open and give them a decent clean out. Professor Skelton is correct in his analysis, but has this governing body looked at the human effluent from septic tanks from Little River which has  had a number of floods over the last five years, all emptying out into Lake Forsyth? Has the earthquake added damage to the field drains and  Birdlings Flat for example. And finally what about the wild fowl that you frequently see grazing in large numbers on fields around the lake frontages and inland?

A reader responds to the article on the new dog control bylaw Jenny Warmington – I have just read about these new bylaws where you can, or rather, can’t, take dogs now, in Bay Harbour News. I think they are just ridiculous – what it actually says is that you can’t take your dog anywhere now. I live on Banks Peninsula and we take our small dog with us everywhere.  He can be leashed if need be, but he does no damage, chases nothing or no one, just enjoys being out and about with us.  This is a very unfriendly dog country we live in. If the dog is under complete control and you pick up after him/her then what is the problem? Overseas, notably the United Kingdom where we come from, you can take your dog absolutely everywhere. And everyone loves it. And NZ calls itself an animal loving country. I don’t think so.

Dog sled statue to be unveiled „„ By Mary Jamieson, Lyttelton Lions Club secretary WHAT FUNNY weather it has been – some days the sun has been shining and then there has been a hailstorm. It is also very cold. So different from when I was recently walking through the Botanical Gardens with the Lyttelton Walking Group admiring the displays of daffodils and enjoying the

early spring sunshine. Lyttelton Lions are running a barbecue next Sunday so I am keeping my fingers crossed that the lovely spring weather returns. On Saturday, October 1, at 2.30pm there will be an unveiling of a bronze sled dog statue in Albion Square. This was commissioned by

the New Zealand Antarctic Society’s Canterbury branch to celebrate Lyttelton’s links with the Antarctic. Mark Whyte sculpted it and a competition was held to name the dog, and it was given the name Hector by a local student. Lyttelton Lions were very happy to support this and I am really looking forward

to seeing Hector in his new home. We are always looking for new members in our club. If you are the sort of person who enjoys making new friends, having a social life and most importantly giving back to your community, why not think about getting in touch for a chat. Our president can be reached on 384 6124 or 027 436 1901.

Local Automotive Business Takes On New Direction Geographic and demographic changes in the east of the city have led to many businesses shifting with many people needing to find new service providers. It is nice to know that some businesses are still there and one example is Gainsborough Auto. They have a long established history of providing automotive repairs for people living or working in the east. This business, which has been based on its existing site for many years, recently came under new management and with it a new direction has been set to serve the growing needs of its customers. New manager, Chris Low and Office Manager, Tracey Sheehan have been working on initiatives to take the business through this transitional time so a more diverse range of automotive repairs can be delivered. Their aim is to ensure that a consistently high level of reliable automotive repairs and friendly service is offered to customers at all times. Historically, Gainsborough Auto has had a reputation for providing the complete package. Their experienced and skilled team can handle any automotive repair or servicing job, taking away any need to travel into or across town to have a particular repair carried out. “Whether it’s the teenager’s manual Honda or the family sedan we can repair them, including European and BMW. We have the experience, expertise, technology and facilities to look after any make or model of motor vehicle, including diesels,” advises Tracey.

Their workshop has the latest diagnostic scan tools that read dashboard faults, along with other equipment such as their brake testing and rolling road machine which simulates a car driving on the road. They also have a transmission flush machine along with an air conditioning service that will flush out the system, cleaning out all the vents while sprucing up the carpets and seats so only clean fresh air comes out when you turn on the air conditioning. Located in a heavy commercial area, Gainsborough Auto also repair light commercial and service fleet vehicles for many major businesses based nearby, while also taking care of smaller repairs such as fixing the trailer. They also carry out Warrant of Fitness inspections and sell a full range of tyres, fit tyres and carry out puncture repairs. If needing wheels while your vehicle is being serviced, then a loan car is available and if choosing to wait, there is a comfortable, warm and welcoming waiting room complete with coffee machine, washroom and a friendly smile. Gainsborough Auto is particularly handy for people living in the south east whether in Bromley, South Brighton, Ferrymead, Mount Pleasant, Redcliffs or Sumner. To book in your vehicle for a WOF or repairs, give the friendly team at Gainsborough Auto a call on 03 384 4957. They are located at 281 Dyers Road, on the corner of Dyers Road and Francella Street, right next to Dyers’ Road ITM in Bromley. You can also check them out on Facebook.

Lifesavers take silver Ohoka plumber at world champs SPORTS

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce SUMNER’S SEB Johnson and coach Jonelle Quane came close to earning world champion status when the Junior Black Fins finished second at the Lifesaving World Championships. The biannual event was held in the Netherlands over the weekend, with New Zealand’s senior team, the Black Fins, winning the world title on Monday. The championship is the largest international lifesaving competition in the world. The senior squad won the national teams’ title for the third time in a row after first prising the title from Australia in Adelaide in 2012, and then winning again in France in 2014. Competitors earned points depending on their placing in each event. The junior team finished with 735. But their rivals Australia ended up trumps with 926. Italy finished third on 546 points. Johnson’s competition was highlighted by strong performances throughout. He was part of the team that won gold in the tube rescue and silver in the Oceanman Relay. Quane was head coach of the Junior Black Fins during the competition, and said the break-

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce NICK JONES has only taken part in three jet ski races – but has already won two, including one on Saturday. Jones, an Ohoka plumber, was one of nearly 40 endurance riders to take part in the Lyttelton to Akaroa event last weekend. The initial race course had to be modified due to 2-3m swells at Godley Head. It was changed to two laps, starting from the harbour to Port Levy and back around Quail Island to the finish. Canterbury Jet Sports Club president Glenn Chisholm said safety had to come first when deciding on the course. “It was a compromised beginning, but when you have 2-3m swells it’s just not safe for the support boats to be out there in that . . . we were looking every half a day, constantly monitoring it for health and safety. They still did the whole course probably between 40-something and 50 minutes,” he said. The overall distance covered in the race was 78km, which Jones completed in 42m 31s. “I’m stoked. Throughout the

race I kept looking around to see if I was actually going in the right direction. I was actually more stoked with my average speed through the race, which was about 112km/h,” Jones said. Mr Chisholm said the club was given the choice on whether to run the original planned event, but went with the safe option so no one was injured. “The coastguard gave us that responsibility. They were happy for us to run because their boat can handle it, but I was more concerned for our support boats,” he said. “There were no injuries, we had one ski blow up, but they are machines, they do that. It was the only two stroke there.” The club is now moving into their summer season and will be hosting events around the city, including races at Lake Roto Kohatu, Harewood, and New Brighton.

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.

Rebuilding your community

I am a Cantabrian who is independent and not aligned to any political party or local candidate group. I am married to Denise and together we have three children.

early planning stages of building our new family home in Heathcote.

I have served three years as Councillor for the Hagley Ferrymead ward, which is arguably one of the most affected in the city. It has been a very busy time with a lot of planning and decision-making around building resilience for the future and working closely with the affected communities on how we achieve that.

I came into council knowing that this term would not be easy but wanted to be a part of working with the community to develop a new future for this city. We have worked hard to get our finances in order and we have worked hard to build back trust with the government. Most of all we have worked hard to build back trust with our community. We have come a long way from when I took office three years ago.

Throughout this term I have always been accessible even during times of heavy workload. This has enabled me to develop an intimate knowledge and understanding of all the local issues. With the changes to the wards boundaries, I am standing for the new Heathcote ward. I am committed to the area being at the

Over this term I have been involved in all aspects of the council and its subsidiaries. I believed this necessary to give me a better understanding of how the council works and the ability to influence their direction. I now carry a large amount of knowledge setting me apart from other candidates.

I remember the day Christchurch first received accreditation as an international safe city; at the time I was the manager of the Central City and a big part of my role was to help reduce the anti-social behaviors. I worked with a number of agencies including the police and the city council to reduce inner city issues and just prior the earthquakes the police were about to release their latest statistics highlighting we had radically reduced anti social behavior. Christchurch was the first large city in New Zealand to receive safe city accreditation from the World Health Organization and this accreditation helped dispel the popular belief - fueled by the media - that Christchurch was an unsafe city.

When I became chair of Safer Christchurch in March last year I was disappointed to see that our safe city accreditation had been suspended. I worked with our staff and strategic partners to refresh our safe city strategy which we completed June this year along with regaining our accreditation. Having the feeling of safety is a basic human right so I have a bold vision that Christchurch is the safest city in New Zealand When you have strong communities you have a strong city so this strategy aims to ensure that all community members, including those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable feel safe and welcome and are able to participate in city life.

To achieve this we have identified some key principles and priorities to get us to our goal: Priority 1: Proactive partnerships that have a shared commitment to a safe city Priority 2: Reducing and preventing injuries Injury in New Zealand both intentional and unintentional is the leading cause of death among people aged 1 – 34 Priority 3: Reducing and preventing the incidence and effects of crime We will to work with key stakeholders to identify and respond to crime, fear of crime, and antisocial behavior issues.

setting me apart from other

candidates.

Key Pieces of work this term:

I want to see us continue to improve the quality of our waterways.

Priority 4: Enhancing safety on our roads Between 2010 and 2014, 53% of crashes in Christchurch occurred at intersections. So we will support the implementation of the road safety action plan for Christchurch city. Priority 5: Building in safety We have the best opportunity to build in safety while we are rebuilding our roads, footpaths and buildings. This will support making the city and neighborhoods vibrant, safe and inclusive.

Consistency will be Essential

The city had lost its safe city accreditation so when I took over chairing the group in March last year; my goal was to regain accreditation as an International Safe City. I achieved that result in June this year along with a refreshing Safer Christchurch Strategy and remodeling the governance group.

Through the development of our long-term plan we have budgeted for upgrading our wastewater and stormwater infrastructure, which will reduce contaminants getting into our waterways. However, we need to continue our programme of waterway and wetland plantings and also working with community groups and others to protect our waterways.

We need to harness modern technology to help us monitor not only our water but also our air quality. When I get time I like to get out and help support the local groups like the Mahoe-nui bush restoration project and local rubbish cleanups. It is a great way for me to help out and get some exercise in. However, we also need to continue to build the knowledge of our waterways through monitoring. To do this, Christchurch joined other major New Zealand cities as partners in the NEC, which aims to enable New Zealand to become a smart nation. We need to harness modern technology to help us monitor not only our water but also our air quality.

This term’s involvements Over this term I have been involved in all aspects of the council and its subsidiaries. This has not only given me a greater understanding of the council and the community, it has also given me a huge amount of knowledge to assist the community to drive progress, which sets me apart from other candidates. I am also on six boards and all my directors’ fees have been donated to the mayoral relief fund. However, I still carry the workload and the liabilities that come with those appointments.

Reforming the delivery and management of the Council Social Housing with the set up of the housing management board through to establishing a new trust to take over and manage the councils social housing. This has been a massive piece of work of which the value cannot be underestimated as currently the portfolio losses $680k a month.

Worked closely with the Christchurch Adventure Park to find a funding source so Christchurch did not lose that opportunity. The council committed to investing $2m into the project late last year.

Vote for stability – vote for consistency. Vote Paul Lonsdale in this election. Obesity Issue We need to get more people walking, cycling and using public transport. I was astonished to learn that New Zealand has one of the worst obesity rates in the world. We need to get our people walking and cycling more to help reduce this obesity issue.

Annual Plan Through this last annual plan process I was very pleased to see that our careful hand and conservative approach in developing and setting the long term plan direction has provided some good news for Christchurch. We have enabled lower borrowing, lower rate increases and a delay in the capital release programme. This will give us time to consider more innovative ways we can fund our future borrowing to ensure we bounce forward as a city. These changes are largely due to a higher growth rate than was expected within the city’s rating base, an $80m greater insurance payout than was budgeted for through the long term plan. Obviously the major contributor to this good news was the insurance settlement prior to Christmas delivering an $80m decrease to what we had budgeted for in our long-term plan.

The proportion of residents who believe we are a cycle friendly city has fallen from a low 54% to a ridiculously low 27%. So we need to stay committed to building our major and local cycle ways. We need to commit to completing leisure walkways like the coastal pathway and get on and repair our footpaths and create pedestrian areas that are safe and attractive to walk around. We also need to assist getting commuters out of their cars and onto our public transport system. However, we need to make sure that our public transport system is efficient, safe and dependable. If we don’t – there will be 70,000 more car trips through the city on a daily basis. Our roads just will not be able to cope.

I am also pleased to see we are taking a more realistic approach to our capital programme, but I am also mindful that we have a lot of work to do in this space and if there were ways we could speed this up that we would look for ways to make this happen. We need to continue to streamline our processes and prudent financial management of our operational expenditure so we can deliver greater savings without the loss of quality of service. We often get complaints about the state of our road-side gardens, weeds in road median strips, so I want to see the council hold our contractors accountable and ensure they are delivering what we are paying for.

This will give us time to consider more innovative ways we can fund our future borrowing to ensure we bounce forward as a city.

Paul Lonsdale Councillor for Heathcote

I have observed Paul Lonsdale mature as a City Councillor since he was elected. He is thoughtful in debates and a good listener. He is a strong advocate for his constituents and I would have been delighted to have him as a member of any City Council I presided over. ~ Garry Moore, former mayor of Christchurch Every election is important and just as important is your vote. The city is now halfway through its rebuild and we need you to provide direction, so make your vote count. I have served this community for three years now and want to continue to do so for another term. I have represented this community well and we have got a lot over the line, including funding for the Coastal Pathway, Scarborough Paddling Pool, Sumner Library, Museum and Community Centre, Redcliffs Volunteer Library, Mt Pleasant Community Centre and Heathcote Volunteer Library just to name some of the more significant projects.

Some of the issues council should address in the next three years: • Improving the quality of our waterways • Get more people walking, cycling and using public transport • Reduce natural hazard risk and improve our ability to respond • Increase our sense of belonging • Revitalise our central city • Speed up repair of our roads and footpaths • Continue to strengthen local communities by empowering them with a hand up, not a hand out approach to the way we deliver local outcomes • Reduce the need for rate rises through prudent financial management

Consistency will be Essential
