Residents may win battle for changing sheds „„ By Noah Graham CHANGING SHEDS at Scarborough Park could be installed following residents’ frustration the toilets were congested with people getting changed. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board requested money for the changing sheds to be included in the draft Annual Plan. The city council has budgeted $100,000 for the project, which could be carried out later this year, if the Annual Plan is approved following public consultation. Resident Peter Hansen said the lack of changing rooms has been a big problem. He said a lot of children and teenagers use the two toilets to change in and out of their clothes at the beach. It has caused congestion problems

for those who want to use the toilets. Community board member Darrell Latham said it was something nearby residents’ and beach goers had been “advocating for.” “Mainly due to congestion from surf clubs holding teaching sessions along the waterfront and using the toilet facilities as changing rooms. “This has meant that folk passing have not been able to access toilet facilities in an easy manner,” Dr Latham said. City council head of community support, governance and partnerships Lester Wolfreys said creating more public toilets “makes sense.” “Currently people use the public toilets to change after swimming and surfing. This reduces the availability of public toilets,” Mr Wolfreys said.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK SOME RELIEF is on its way for those in need at Scarborough Park. We reveal today on page 1 that $100,000 may be put aside by the city council to build changing rooms at the popular park – and that will be money well spent. At the moment people are changing in the toilets and that’s causing a few issues for those who need them for what they were built for. Scarborough is hugely popular so it’s a no-brainer to put changing sheds in. Top marks to Sumner Running Club athletes who stood out at the Canterbury children’s championships in Timaru. We have a great shot on page 1 of Caleb Sutter, and more coverage on page 15. Many thanks to the club for sending in details and photos of its efforts at the championships. – Barry Clarke

Penguins explore new nests „„ By Bridget Rutherford A SUCCESSFUL predator control programme on Banks Peninsula has meant some of the world’s smallest penguins have started exploring new nesting sites. In November and December, Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust carried out its great little penguin count at the largest mainland penguin colony in the country – Flea Bay. Marie It is carried out Haley every four years on the white flippered penguins and took about three weeks to do, because they like to nest in isolated, and difficult spots to access. Although the number of pairs of penguins had declined since the previous count, results showed they have started to explore old and unused nest sites. Nests were found in burrows at Otanerito, which had been unused for about 15-20 years. BPCT Wildside co-ordinator Marie Haley said it was exciting news for the colony’s future. She said it showed the success of the predator control programme across an area known as the Wildside, since numbers blew out in the 1980s. The Wildside is a nationally

In Brief TOURISTS UNHURT A tourist couple have walked away uninjured after their car crashed into a bank on State Highway 75, Little River, on Sunday afternoon. Akaroa police Senior Constable Tim Johnson said the tourists were travelling too fast in the wet weather, lost control and as they turned a corner, flipped and crashed into the bank.

significant area for the protection of sea bird breeding sites. “It’s taken that long for the programme to be good enough, and long enough lasting for the tide to really turn and it’s quite exciting.”

Ms Haley said the penguins had also been nesting at the bottom of Hinewai Reserve, and also around the coast where the predator control programme took place, from Akaroa head to Le Bons Bay.

They had also moved to more open places closer to humans and activity, and seemed to be coping well, she said. A lot more were also being spotted in Akaroa Harbour, she said. In 2012, 1304 penguin pairs were counted. While the recent count found 1250. Ms Haley said the drop was not concerning, because the Flea Bay population had increased most years, and now it seemed to have reached its maximum. The very first count was done in 2000, with 717 pairs. The trust was also seeing continued increase in the number of sooty shearwaters or titi, nesting at Stony Bay. In the last count in December, there were up to 50 chicks. The number had gone up every year.

CONTAINER REMOVED On Sunday morning a 7m container was removed from a vessel docked at the Lyttelton Port when it was believed to have contained a hazardous resin. Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade chief fire officer Mark Buckley (right) said there were no issues in the container’s removal and it was all done in a “very safe manner.” Lyttelton Port of Christchurch manager Doug Parker confirmed a sticky resin was spilt when the container was on-board the ship. He said it is in a secured area of the port awaiting cleanup. “There was no spillage into any waterways and no harm to the environment,” he said.

News Better communication – principal „„ By Noah Graham LYTTELTON Primary School’s new principal is aiming for better communication between the school and community. Brendan Wright has been at the school since January but feels like he is already at home. Mr Wright’s appointment followed former principal Diana Feary’s resignation last year, after a number of complaints from parents about management, communication, teacher morale and the impact on children’s education. Mr Wright said being the new principal will be challenging, something he is looking forward to. His major goal will be to build a better relationship between the school and the community, “You’ve got such a mixture of people in the community. A variety of people with different jobs and roles,” he said. The school was “close to people’s hearts.” Mr Wright said he is aiming for the pupils to learn more about the place they live in, the environment and the eclectic nature of Lyttelton. “There is always challenge with change and for each school the challenge is different.”

Before his new role, Mr Wright was the principal at Hanmer Springs School for six years where he saw the school role increase from 75 pupils to 130. He said he feels at home in Lyttelton and the school because it is a similarly “close-knit” community like Hanmer Springs and having a good relationship between them both is a crucial part of a school running well. “There’s been a lot of changes in education since I started. In particular, technology is a huge factor in why it has changed.” Mr Wright said when he first started teaching they had an old computer in the corner of the room, now the pupils are using iPads. His main goal is to ensure the school is working with the community and making use of the place they are living in and the extraordinary populace. Mr Wright said pupils had to be taught to be adaptable and prepare them for change, rather than directing pupils in one direction. “They are going to have to cope with change and we have to help them to continually think about change.” However, he said reading, writing and mathematics are still

Repairing damage to the Port Hills „„ By Noah Graham IT WILL take years and potentially millions of dollars to rejuvenate the Ohinetahi Reserve. More than 83ha of native plants were lost when the Port Hills fire raged through the reserve last month along with 1.3km worth of fencing. Now the Summit Road Society is looking for funding to help restore the reserve. The society has set up a Givealittle page, which has raised more than $5300, to help ease the pressure of the potential cost, society president Bill Woods said. Mr Woods said it would cost more than $16,500 to repair the fencing, and hiring a contractor to re-plant the reserve would cost more than $8 million, money the society does not have. “It’s a staggering amount of money.” However, Mr Woods said they were going to have to be creative with trying to restore the land by aerial spraying flax seeds, which the society has collected, over the reserve, followed by handplanting eco-sourced plants around the perimeter. It is expected the cost of aerial spraying followed by hand planting will cost $50,000, he said. He said, if the society had the

perimeter line planted, they hoped maybe nature would take over and spread native seeds into the reserve area to help rejuvenate the scorched land. He said it was also important for the fence to be repaired as soon as possible to stop neighbouring animal stock from wandering onto the land and eating the young trees when they are planted. Mr Woods said they want to get a recovery programme under way quickly before the risk of erosion and sediment could affect nearby creeks and the harbour basin if there is heavy

rainfall. It was also important to try and get as much of it done before winter sets in and before grass and weeds take hold, making it difficult for indigenous species to establish themselves more easily, he said. “We’re already losing that race – there are weeds growing in the reserve already.” Mr Woods said it will be a 50year project to get the reserve to how it was before the fire. The Summit Road Society was the hardest hit landowner from the fire, with a huge loss in native biodiversity in Ohinetahi Reserve.

„„ By Noah Graham MORE THAN one million flax seeds have been collected so far to help rejuvenate the Ohinetahi Reserve. Two flax pod de-seeding meetings have taken place in the Governors Bay Community Centre over the past two weeks to collect flax seeds which will be spread over the Ohinetahi Reserve. Summit Road Society member and organiser of the deseeding meetings, Tony Edney, said more than 20 volunteers were at each meeting. “I’ve calculated it to more than 30,000 seeds collected per person. They’ve done really well.” Mr Edney said it was important for the society to collect the seeds as the flax plants could be the reserve’s lifeline if sprayed over the area. He said the plants grow quickly and don’t burn easily, but they would need a lot of seeds because of the low development rate. Mr Edney said the flax pods were collected from neighbouring areas. The group needed to start

work on the reserve as soon as possible before weeds took over the land. “Right now gorse seeds are starting to germinate. They’ve had a good head start. We don’t want to be a year out,” Mr Edney said. He said there would be more de-seeding meetings this month.

News Library ready for bookworms „„ By Noah Graham AFTER BEING closed for earthquake repairs, the library at Lyttelton has reopened. The building in Canterbury St, has been closed for the past 12 months as it underwent repairs, refurbishment and strengthening after it suffered earthquake damage. However, the library celebrated its official opening on Monday morning. It will share premises with the city council’s Lyttelton customer service desk. Lyttelton Community Library team leader Annette Williams said the opening had been a success with about 90 people attending. She said they had several community members there including

Banks Peninsula Community Board members. “It went very, very well.” She said pupils from Lyttelton Primary School were there and they performed a kapa haka. The temporary library served its purpose, but it was really good to have their own space back, she said. The library had been operating from a temporary site in Trinity Hall during the repairs and the service desk had been using an

interim building at 15 London St. She said they were already making the most of their new library with the chance to learn about robotics through Lego and Bee-Bots today from 3.30pm and an augmented reality session on Friday. The library and customer service desk will be available for the community on Monday to Friday from 10am-6pm with the library also open on Saturday from 10am to 1pm.

Police meeting with residents tomorrow „„ By Noah Graham AN ORGANISER of an online survey about crime in Lyttelton hopes tomorrow’s police-prompted community meeting will not just be a show of statistics. A public meeting between police and the community will be held at the Lyttelton Primary School hall at 6pm. It comes after months of concern from residents about policing in Lyttelton. Paul Dietsche, who helped organise an online survey which highlighted the community’s dissatisfaction, is worried the police will show statistics that say there has not been an increase in crime. But he is hopeful the police will suggest plans on how the community and police can work together. Canterbury area prevention manager Acting Inspector Paul Reeves, Senior Sergeant Stephen McDaniel and Sergeant Dave Knowles will be at the meeting to help answer the community’s questions. National list MP Nuk Korako said he will attend. Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson and Green Party list MP Eugenie Sage have requested leave from Parliament to attend.

$30,000 lifeline for cottage „„ By Noah Graham FERRYMEAD’S COB Cottage has been given a $30,000 lifeline to stop it deteriorating. The money has been fast tracked after Linwood-CentralHeathcote Ward councillors Sara Templeton and Yani Johanson (left) argued it was needed urgently. A total of $300,000 which was earmarked for the repair had been deferred out to 2020/21 in the proposed draft Annual Plan. However, Cr Templeton and Cr Johanson asked for the repair of the cottage to be brought forward to 2019. Cr Templeton said the extra $30,000 will ensure the building is secured and help stop deterioration until 2019 while also contributing to public consultation and consent costs. The historic cottage was significantly damaged in the 2011 earthquakes and repairs were put on hold until Ferrymead Bridge could be fixed. She said the cottage has been a marker in the community for

Reunion celebrates Danish settler history

ABOUT 70 descendants of 19th-century Danish settler Peter Sorensen visited sites around Banks Peninsula recently for a family reunion. Descendants met first at the Greenpark Memorial Community Centre before spending the weekend visiting various Banks Peninsula locations associated with the family history. The reunion culminated with a get-together at the Akaroa Recreation Ground. Mr Sorensen, a carpenter, and his wife Rasmine made the journey from Yding, Denmark, to Lyttelton onboard the Cardigan Castle in 1873. Conditions in Denmark were not good at the time and the New Zealand Government was initially recruiting immigrants. The Sorensens’ children Karen and Nielsine also made the voyage. A third child had died of cholera in London after arriving there from Denmark and three other children, Mary, Frederick and Bodiline were born in New Zealand. The family settled, first at Robinsons Bay, and then in the

Little River area, and lived there for many years. Family members worked at the Robinsons Bay, Springvale and Tarawera mills. The children married into families in the Banks Peninsula area and Christchurch, before dispersing out to various farms throughout Canterbury and beyond. Bodiline Sorensen worked as a housekeeper for the Rhodes brothers at Flea Bay before marrying Greek-born Akaroa launch operator Demetrius Koinomopolus. They were better known locally as Mr and Mrs Dominique. Mrs Dominique, who lived to 94, was well regarded in Akaroa

She was also known for her fine embroidery and her marriage certificate, which she worked in cross-stitch, was on show at the Akaroa Museum over the reunion weekend. Many of the descendants at the reunion came from Canterbury, Otago and Southland. Some also came from the North Island and Australia, as well as as far afield as Wisconsin and Vietnam. Only one descendant of Mr Sorensen lives on the peninsula today, a great, great granddaughter who lives in Takamatua.

Enhancing biodiversity LinwoodCentralHeathcote Community Board member Tim Lindley talks about the community’s effort in re-vegetating the Avon/Heathcote Estuary and urges people to also help with the next planned planting along the Coastal Pathway Community effort really does make a difference. Sometimes the progress made is so steady it can be hard to remember how things were before, but changes for the better definitely are happening. A good local example (and there are many others) is the partnership between various community groups and city council to re-vegetate the south east Avon/Heathcote Estuary edge and nearby gullies with native plants. Many projects are involved, including the Charlesworth Reserve, McCormacks Bay, Drayton Reserve, Coastal Pathway, Sumner Dunes and Mahoe-Nui Bush – and possibly some I don’t know about yet. These are important for many reasons, one being the compel-

ling evidence that being able to regularly take time out in nature is good for mental well-being. It also represents good stewardship. In Charlesworth Reserve, rare black backed gulls have begun breeding and the godwits (now heading away for winter) have found an extension to their feeding grounds. For keen walkers, Drayton Reserve, tucked in between Mt Pleasant and Balmoral spurs, is well worth a visit. There are five entry points. The easiest to find are from the far end of Basil Pl, the first bend up Glenstrae Rd and the end of Avery Pl. The bush is growing well here and with a trapping programme under way, it could even become noisy with birdlife. The next planting planned for the Coastal Pathway is a special one – the landscaped area opposite Redcliffs Park.

Community to engage with police at meeting

with the community directly. The community meeting, taking place at Lyttelton Primary School at 6pm tomorrow, will be an opportunity for dialogue between police and the community. It will be valuable for the community to hear first-hand what the crime statistics are in Lyttelton, and find out more about the work police are doing. But it will also be a chance for members of the community to have their say, and let police know what they have experienced and how they feel they could be better served. Looking into the future, I do think Lyttelton should expect to benefit from the National Government’s recent announcement of a Safer Communities package, including 880 new sworn police officers. The extra police staff will be distributed where New Zealand Police believe the greatest need is. I think Lyttelton is a prime candidate, and I will be communicating that to our police leadership in Canterbury. When it comes to deciding on the distribution of these extra resources, it can only be a positive thing for Lyttelton that we are now opening a dialogue between the community and the police who serve them.

National list MP Nuk Korako talks about the importance of open dialogue between the community and police and how crucial tomorrow’s police meeting will be

The land form and planting plan has been carefully designed by Wraight and Associates so that people using the pathway will not frighten birds away from the estuary edge. The planting is scheduled for mid-May. This project urgently needs community help. The project leader is leaving Christchurch in April and the pathway group is urgently seeking someone to take over. To offer help or to find out more, email info@ christchurchcoastalpathway.org. nz   

Lyttelton is known for many things – stunning natural beauty, a rich history, a key position as host to Canterbury’s port, and a close-knit community spirit. It is when communities are challenged that we really see that community spirit come to the fore. The big challenge that Lyttelton is facing now is the spate of crime – particularly burglary – which residents have been telling me about for several months. We all want to feel safe in our homes and it’s awful to know that there are people in our community who are threatening the security of our homes and vehicles – whether these are fellow members of the community or opportunists who have come in from somewhere else. I am very pleased that the police response to these issues being raised has been to engage

A lesson for boaties on how to stay safe on the water „„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttelton QUESTION: What’s the rule for meeting another boat that’s travelling head-on towards you? If you cannot answer this basic question then, sadly, you’re not alone. I will give you the answer to this at the end of my column. As I’m constantly visiting boating areas across Canterbury as Environment Canterbury navigation safety officer, I often speak with keen boaties about the rules. This helps me to figure out what people do and don’t know about the Navigation Safety Bylaw 2016 rules. As a result of these infor-

the boaties I spoke with had not actually read the bylaw. If this is representative of our boaties, it’s a bit scary. The bylaw rules define what you can and cannot do in waterways in the Canterbury region. What is the speed limit of vessels within 200m of the shore or structure, or within 50m of a swimmer or another vessel? This is another question that caught a new rules and jotted down (in an lot of people out. While the rule informal survey) what people did is five knots, a lot of people said and didn’t know.

However, many admitted

they hadn’t checked their life jackets to ensure they were safe. Life jackets must be checked regularly for wear, that they inflate correctly and are safe. If you do not know how to have your life jacket checked, email me at gary.manch@ecan.govt.nz and I will send you the information. Before I sign off, here’s the answer to the question I asked at the start of my column: When two boats are approaching headon to each other they must pass port to port (left side to left side) both must alter their course to starboard (turn to the right) to avoid colliding head on.

Sick bed to City2Surf „„ By Gabrielle Stuart JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly sick, and had to put both her work and her wedding on hold – and she had no idea what was going wrong. On Sunday she will take on the 14km The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate event, which she will walk, and she won’t be doing it alone. Her partner, friends and many of the nurses who helped her get on her feet again plan to do the walk beside her – 41 people in total – raising money to help others with the same condition get treatment. The 30-year-old began feeling sick in 2014, but initially doctors did not know what was wrong. It took almost two years for her to be diagnosed and find a treatment, because she was facing a complex mix of parasites in her intestines, crohn’s disease and endometriosis. For much of that time she couldn’t work, and she had to postpone her wedding three times. “It was like my life was turned upside down. It was really, really frightening just not knowing what was going on,” she said. After a Christchurch gastroenterolTURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor ogy specialist, Steven Ding, diaghealth behind her and is looking forward to the nosed her problems, she has made a City2Surf. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN gradual recovery.

But she said it was only possible because of the help she received, and the diagnosis tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust. “The things that finally got me well cost a lot of money, so I wanted to give something back,” she said. She has already raised almost $1500 through people sponsoring her run. She said she had never done anything like the City2Surf before, and after being sick for so long being able to cross the finish line would feel like a giant victory. “I’m sure there will be tears,” she said. “I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal, but I am still able to work, which is amazing.” She works for Bupa as an activity organiser, and said they held her job for her, in spite of the fact she was off work for three months. She has also rescheduled her wedding, and plans to marry her partner of eight years, Craig Corboy, this December. “I’m determined I’m going to get down the aisle this time,” she said. •The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate, Sunday, 14km or 6km option walk, jog or run, $25 Entries available at Pak’NSave, New World, The Athletes Foot, YMCA and online at www.city2surf.co.nz

Learn more about wetlands with interactive questions „„ By Noah Graham THE AVON-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is using a new way to get people wandering around the Charlesworth Wetland Reserve track. The trust is trialling a questionnaire about the reserve’s local flora for the community to answer as they stroll around the Wetland Edge Walk. Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said people will have to locate signs around the reserve which correlate to 20 questions inside a pamphlet about a particular plant within the reserve. She said it appealed to people both young and old. “It is absolutely fun . . . Who doesn’t want to be a detective?” Mrs Jenkins said it was a great way for the community to enjoy a 30-minute walk, while also learning something new about the place they live in. She said there are a range of questions which help people understand how certain plants are cared for or why they look the way they do. The questionnaire is the first of its sort in Christchurch tracks, she said. Mrs Jenkins said walking tracks in the North Island had

started using an interactive element to their walks which had worked “really well,” so it was about time Canterbury gave it a go. She said a family had trialled the questionnaire and loved it. “The parents enjoyed the trail

as much as the children. The discussions after each question by all four of them was fabulous to see.” The map and quiz are placed in a waterproof display holder in the reserve car park on Charlesworth St.

OUR LADY Star of the Sea School pupils donned different countries’ colours for their cultural day last week. Year 8 student leaders Lucy Walker, Rio Simpson and Frances Dougherty organised the day and divided the school into three countries, where pupils had to wear outfits representing either the United States, Brazil or Ireland. The pupils were asked to donate a gold coin and played a “fun-style of Olympics,” which included a variety of team sports in the afternoon, all to raise money for the year 7 and 8 camp later next month, principal John Kane said. He said it was a wonderful day for the school to celebrate cultural diversity.

Young Sumner athletes excel „„ By Noah Graham

SPORTS

SUMNER RUNNING Club athletes broke records and won several medals at the Canterbury children’s championships in Timaru. Junior club captain Ann Wells said it was a fantastic event at Aorangi Stadium with excellent conditions. She said the athletes beat a lot of the club’s records while also nabbing a few top spots. The club did exceptionally well this year because it had a smaller contingency of athletes and

produced a number of top-three performances within the various age groups, she said. “It was fantastic, they all did so well.” She said the top performers were Luca Tracey, Caleb Sutter and Tim Ward. The grade 14 boys’ relay team, made up of Tim, Caleb, Luca and John Wells, narrowly missed out on a top three placing and breaking the club record, she said. Results – Sumner athletes Luca Tracey (B11) – 1st

100m/3rd 200m /1st long jump (record) Caleb Sutter – (B11) 1st 200m/3rd long jump Jonah Cropp – (B11) 1st 1200m walk (record) Maddie Sharpe (G11) – 3rd 1500m Beth Hunter (G13) – 2nd high jump (record)/3rd 400m (record) John Wells (B13) – 3rd 80m hurdles (record) Tim Ward (B14) – 3rd 100m (record)/3rd 200m (record)/3rd

MARK: Beth Hunter broke two of the club’s records after she placed second in the girls’ grade 13 high jump and third in the 400m race.

WELL DONE: Luca Tracey was one of the best athletes competing in Timaru last weekend as he finished first in the Canterbury Children’s Championships 2017 boys’ grade 11 100m, third in the 200m and first in the long jump and beat a club record.

Christchurch Hearing and Audiology Clinics Lyttelton locals will now benefit from regular hearing and audiology clinics being held at Lyttelton Health Centre on Oxford Street. Sincock & Till Audiology are the Christchurch hearing specialists and saw the need for a clinic in the port town. “We

have customers travel to us from Lyttelton and with no full-time hearing clinic for the area, it made perfect sense to make a regular and ongoing commitment to the area,” says Carolyn Till. Full audiology services will be on offer

including hearing aid sales, adjustments to existing hearing aids, diagnostic hearing tests and wax removal. Sincock & Till specialise in ACC for hearing loss resulting from noise exposure. ACC offer generous subsides for hearing aids when the loss is caused by damage resulting from noisy employment or recreational activities, something that is common given the industry of Lyttelton. “We have a good relationship with ACC and significant experience with helping customers through the ACC process,” says Carolyn. “We are fortunate in New Zealand to have access to this funding but the key is to get a diagnosis of a noise related loss prior to age related hearing loss being more predominant.” Locals who visit the Lyttelton clinic will always have access to the Christchurch city clinic on Barbadoes Street. “Hearing is valuable and our message is that “a conversation costs nothing,” says Carolyn. “Make an appointment, talk to us about your hearing and we will do what we do!” “We are highly experienced and offer a more personal approach to audiology and hearing healthcare. We pride ourselves on being locally owned, affordable and independent of the large internationally owned companies and we aim to deliver a better level of service. What is important

to customers with hearing aids is seeing the same person every time and trusting that person to genuinely care about their hearing. Hearing aids only take you so far, choosing the right audiologist is as, if not more important. We often have people switch to us for that reason. We don’t need to be the ones who fitted your hearing aids to be the people that care for your hearing in years to come.” Anyone can visit the new hearing clinic, even if you already have hearing aids and want a more local and convenient provider. Contact Sincock and Till Audiology on 03 385 6036.

REAL ESTATE Llama lookout…on top of the world 11 Bay Heights, Governors Bay Deadline Sale: All offers by 5pm 31 March 2017 (unless sold prior) 4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 10 hectares land (approx.) | ID # 3964

Properties such as these very rarely come to the market. This is a magical setting in one of the most desirable locations within Governors Bay. Nestled on 10 hectares (approx.) of mixed contour land between the hills and the sea, this impressive 320m2 home boasts endless enviable features. The house itself consists of 4 dble bedrooms (main with en-suite) expansive open plan kitchen and dining, and large separate lounge with feature gas fireplace. With living and sleeping over two separate wings there is plenty of space for the whole family. Endless private decking with spa pool and flat, sheltered lawn areas give plenty of options to lose yourself in the tranquil environment and stunning views. The original garage has been turned into a 2 dble bedroom, fully self-contained flat, and there is also a large original barn behind the house. Both are un-consented.

Governors Bay is a very desirable and popular Banks Peninsula suburb just 15 minutes’ drive from Christchurch city. With a local primary school, café and pub there is an excellent community feel here. Llama Lookout is an extremely unique, iconic and quirky property, with countless options for the astute buyer to explore. There is plenty of scope here to develop gardens and put your own mark on the house, or simply move in and enjoy the peaceful, laid back lifestyle so close to the city; yet a world away. Deadline Sale: All Offers by 5pm 31 March 2017 (Unless sold prior). For a private viewing, contact Emma Dunningham of Min Sarginson Real Estate (Licensed Agent REAA 2008), phone 328 7273 or 027 631 1570 or Min Sarginson phone 027 432 0327 or 329 4161
