Cellphone tower angers residents „„ By Caitlin Miles ANGER IS growing over a cellphone tower which has been constructed in Sumner. Residents have contacted local community board member Darrell Latham asking why it is there. The Vodafone tower has been put up outside the SuperValue supermarket car park on Nayland St. Dr Latham said he wanted to know why it was put in such a central location when it wasn’t “easy on the eye.” Under the Telecommunications Act public consultation is not required, and the city council only steps in if the tower does not met the requirements of the act. Dr Latham said he was surprised public consultation did not need to be carried out. •Turn to p4

BAY HARBOUR

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK ONE OF the most abused rules of the road code is back on the radar – how fast you can pass a stationary school bus. If you don’t know, it’s 20km/h. Motorists are being warned to slow right down when passing a school bus picking up or dropping off children (see page 3). Why – because kids will be kids and they do unpredictable things. If you’re going 50, 80 or 100km/h you’ve got no chance of stopping. So if it means hitting the anchors in a 100km/h zone when coming up to a stationary school bus – do it. Someone who won’t be slowing down this weekend is Governors Bay’s Chris McLean. He is competing in the opening round of the NZ Rally Championship (see page 14). Keep the foot down, Chris. – Barry Clarke

In Brief

Many first-timers in triathlon

CASS BAY ACCESS A focus has been put on making Cass Bay more accessible for the disabled and those with mobility issues. At a recent Cass Bay Reserve Management Committee meeting, members decided to make this a priority. It is seen as an ongoing project by the committee, which will look at how to make access to the toilet, playground and beach easier for the disabled.

Youngsters got an early taste of what it takes to be a triathlete at the Sea2Sky Challenge in Sumner on Sunday. Over 400 athletes took part in the event. •More on page 16

Plea to slow down near school buses „„ By Tom Doudney MOTORISTS ignoring the 20km/h speed limit when passing school buses are frustrating police, bus drivers and the wider public. Legally, vehicles must slow down to 20km/h on both sides of the road when passing buses. Clint Ross, who has been driving a school bus for 15 years, said most people ignored the law. “A handful abide, the rest don’t give a damn,” he said.

PAGE 3

“Kids can just pop out just like that. They just run behind the bus and straight across the road or walk out the door and in front of the bus and straight across the road without even thinking. I’ve seen near misses quite a few times.” Mr Ross’ bus is full most days. He had a message for drivers: “Just think, if your children were on this bus and they got off and someone wasn’t abiding by the speed limit and hit your child,

how would you feel?” Mr Ross said one of the most frustrating things was that most police cars passing the bus often didn’t slow down either. “That really brasses me off,” he said. “They should know better.” Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said motorists ignoring the 20km/h speed limit when passing school buses was an ongoing problem. “It’s a traffic law that a lot of

motorists aren’t familiar with – and should be,” he said. While road safety was of critical importance for everyone, it was especially important that extra care was taken to protect more vulnerable members of society, including children using school buses. Senior Sergeant Stills said he would be “extremely disappointed” if any of his officers were indeed not abiding by the 20km/h limit.

SMOKE FILLS HOUSE Smoke alarms and a quick-thinking neighbour prevented a Lyttelton house from being burnt down last week. Firefighters were called to the Exeter St property to find it filled with smoke. The occupant had left the property while cooking, and when the the neighbour heard the smoke alarm going off, phoned the fire brigade. Lyttelton fire chief Mark Buckley said the householder came home while they were cleaning up. He said he was a bit shocked but very thankful the neighbours had reacted when they did, essentially saving the house. Mr Buckley said it was a reminder to make sure everything is off before leaving the house.

•From page 1 He said even though it is not required it should be up to companies to let the community know where they plan to build cellphone towers and if residents have concerns about where it is proposed companies should listen. “They have the need to act as responsible community citizens,” he said. The Sumner Residents’ Association spokesperson Kimberly Mossman didn’t want to comment as they didn’t know enough about it. Dr Latham said he noticed the tower last week, which was when residents’ started asking him about it. He said people weren’t unhappy about a cellphone tower being built, it was the look and location that was upsetting to residents. City council staff said there is no lease on the tower and it will be there indefinitely. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the cellphone tower? Send your opinion to caitlin.miles@starmedia.kiwi

Ellesmere plan not pursued „„ By Tom Doudney RETURNING TE Waihora/ Lake Ellesmere to its pre-1940s condition was not pursued in restoration plans because of the “considerable” social disruption it would involve. The fact that the Central Plains Water scheme, expected to lead to intensification of agriculture in the catchment and a higher nitrogen load, had already been granted resource consent and “this could not be overturned” was also a factor. The Selwyn Te Waihora Tim Davie section of Environment Canterbury’s Land and Water Regional Plan, which became operational last year, seeks to limit the amount of nitrogen reaching the lake to 4800 tonnes per year. Before the 1940s, it is estimated the lake had about 800 tonnes of nitrogen reaching it per year. Since then, the nitrogen load has increased, accompanied by a deterioration in water quality.

NUTRIENT MATTERS: Returning Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere to its pre-1940s condition was not seen as feasible.

An ECan staff report to yesterday’s Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee outlined the background to lake restoration measures as an update to new committee members. The report said that achieving a nitrogen load of 800 tonnes per year would require retirement of intensive agriculture from the lake’s catchment area, along with other lake and catchment interventions.

Kirsty Nixon ON THE WING

In agreeing on 4800 tonnes per year as the target, the zone committee had taken into account “the importance of agriculture to the Selwyn district economy and employment with the need to maintain farm financial viability” and that Central Plains Water irrigation “was consented and this could not be overturned” under provisions in the Resource Management Act. Without the nutrient limits

to still have these creatures share our space and enhance our landscape. Up close, their feathers shine with a metallic luminous quality and when painting the whites of their eyes they each develop personalities. Interestingly the birds in this show have mainly been on the wing and it seems to reflect a current state of mind with a sense of escapism and freedom. Colour excites me and the time seemed right to challenge myself with a fresh exciting palette along with my new subject matter. Embracing colour in my new pieces has been a joy and wonderfully liberating.” Kirsty’s latest exhibition named ‘On The Wing’ takes place at Little River Gallery from April 8th until May 3rd.

Kirsty Nixon ON THE WING 8 APRIL - 3 MAY 2017

set in the plan, the amount of nitrogen reaching the lake would be an estimated 5600 tonnes per year. The zone implementation programme for Selwyn Te Waihora states that none of the other lake mitigation options being employed were a substitute for nutrient load limits and active management to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus entering the lake. “The lower the nutrient load limits set, the more effective the lake mitigation actions are likely to be and the better the outcomes for the lake. Conversely, the higher the nutrient load, the greater is the reliance on successful lake mitigations and the lesser are the lake outcomes that are possible.” ECan chief scientist Tim Davie said the nutrient concentration in the lake would be reduced by a large amount. He also said water quality and lake health were not the same thing. “Fishers now are likely to tell you it is very healthy, as healthy as it has been for a very long time. However, water quality is still an issue,” said Dr Davie.

Organic Training College LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS

Born in 1969, Kirsty lives in Auckland with her husband and two children. She has been a full-time artist since 1977. She says “Although it can be such a rewarding, frustrating, joyous, terrifying occupation I can’t imagine not having it in my life.” About her latest exhibition, “It was a natural step for me to introduce our striking native birds to my work. They quietly snuck in without me even thinking about it too much. We often hear the heavy swoop of wood pigeon as they move from branch to branch and I am woken to the melodic call of the Tui most mornings at home and often surprised by their lively dives through the garden. Fantails pick bugs from our path as we walk the dog through the bush near home. And yet we live in a city. We are fortunate

Rockfall risk to close cave

In Brief

„„ By Caitlin Miles MONCKS CAVE in Redcliffs will be fenced off due to rockfall risk. At a meeting last week city council staff presented a geotech hazard report and landscaping plan to members of the community about the cave and surrounding reserve. The cave and land in Moncks Cave Reserve on the corner of Main Rd and Cave Tce in Redcliffs has been closed off from the public since the February 22, 2011, earthquake, due to risk of collapse or rockfall. Over that time the reserve has become overgrown with its future uncertain. At the meeting between city council staff and members of the Redcliffs community, Redcliffs Residents’ Association secretary Pat McIntosh said city council staff presented a plan to tidy up the reserve and fence off the cave due to the risk of rockfall. Dr McIntosh said she was glad the city council hosted the evening to discuss the future of the cave and reserve with members of the community. “It was a useful session and good for them to bring that information to the public,” Dr McIntosh said.

BIRDLINGS FLAT CENTRE Construction of the Birdlings Flat Community Centre has been completed and it will open later this month. The Little River Wairewa Community Trust is managing the project. A trust is being set up to run and manage the building. City council staff are working with a small subcommittee to plan an official opening for the centre.

OVERGROWN: The city council will landscape the area at Moncks Cave Reserve as well as shutting the cave off from the public. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Moncks Cave is of cultural significance on account of the collection of taonga (treasure) Maori discovered there in 1889. The city council plans to tidy up the area by removing the current fencing to open the reserve and footpath back to the public once the area has been cleared of weeds and

landscaped. City council plans to fence off the entry to the cave to protect the public. Dr McIntosh said it was clear it needed to be fenced off for safety reasons and others

at the meeting were happy with the outcome. Dr McIntosh said what the city council planned “will be a big improvement” on the current look of the area.

STODDART COTTAGE The historic Stoddart Cottage will reopen on April 19 after it was closed due to damage in the February 2011 earthquake. The heritage building in Diamond Harbour has undergone extensive repairs and strengthening. The building is significant to the heritage and culture of the area. The opening will take place at 2.30pm off lower Waipapa Ave.

WHEEL STOLEN A spare wheel was stolen off the back of a sport utility vehicle in Governors Bay at the weekend. The theft was reported to police who are making inquires. Sergeant Dave Knowles said the theft is rare for the area, but is a timely reminder to make sure vehicles are locked and the items on them are secured.

„ By Caitlin Miles THE NEED for redundancies and reduced hours to keep the Lyttelton Community House Trust operational has upset staff. Due to a lack of funding, the trust, located at 7 Dublin St in Lyttelton, has had to cut two staff members and reduce its hours to keep running. Former trust chairman Gary Manch said it was “really upsetting” news for the trust. “A lot of people put work into it, funding is a big issue . . . it’s terrible,” Mr Manch said. He stepped down as chairman last week. He said being the chairman was a hard job, and constantly worrying about funding was stressful. The trust’s office faced complete closure, but by reducing hours and cutting staff it has managed to re-

main open, although it wasn’t an easy decision to make. Mr Manch said he had received feedback from members of the community who were disappointed to hear about the reduced hours, but he said people had not helped to keep the service running. “Non-government funded organisations really rely on funding, you have to pay the rent, running the kitchen, staff and all of that,” he said. Trust staff will be working to ensure people using the service still get the support they need, meals for the elderly and vulnerable will continue and a trained social worker will still be employed to assist people in the community. The trust will work on reduced hours from May 31. •Turn to page 5

LYTTELTON PEOPLE are offering help to struggling community centres following last week’s front page article in Bay Harbour News. One community centre has been closed and another has had to reduce hours and cut staff just to stay running. Lyttelton Youth Centre had to stop operating its premises and combine with Lyttelton Community House Trust, which has reduced hours and has cut staff due to funding shortfalls.​ The article has encouraged members of the community to look at fundraising options for the non-profit organisations. Residents have been encouraged to get in touch with the Lyttelton Community House Trust chairwoman Thea Mickell to discuss fundraising ideas and options to help support the trust.

Recycling wastewater an option RECYCLING Akaroa’s wastewater to keep the area green is a possibility. On Monday, the city council opened up consultation on the future of disposing the community’s wastewater, presenting five different options to choose from. The options include reusing the treated wastewater to irrigate trees or pasture at Takamātua Valley, Robinsons Bay or Pompeys John Mackie Pillar, provide non-drinking water for garden watering and toilet flushing in Akaroa or discharging it into the midharbour, which was the original application. The city council has consent to build a new treatment plant, but its application to Environment Canterbury for a new consent to continue discharging treated wastewater into the harbour was turned down at a hearing last year. The city council was asked to give more consideration to landbased disposal methods that would not require discharging wastewater into the harbour. Options are being looked at as the consent for the current

wastewater treatment plant expires in 2020 and funding for the new scheme was included in the 2016-2017 annual plan. Head of Three Waters and Waste John Mackie said the current treatment plant, which discharges treated wastewater into Akaroa Harbour, was near the end of its useful life. Mr Mackie said each of the four new options involved

reclaiming and reusing, or recycling, the treated wastewater. “The water will be treated to a very high standard, removing almost all bacteria and viruses, and could be suitable for a range of uses, including irrigation and garden watering.’’ The options being presented to the community were chosen in pre-consultation meetings with a working party represent-

ing members of the Akaroa, Robinsons Bay and Takamātua communities, appointees from Ōnuku Rūnanga and Te Rūnanga O Koukourārata and elected members of the Banks Peninsula Community Board and city council. The group was supported by a team of technical experts and city council staff. Consultation on the options closes at the end of the month.

Dictionaries in schools Ferrymead Rotary Club member Barbara Crooks writes about how important hardcopy dictionaries in schools are, and the value they have compared to their online counterpart IT’S A developing debate – dictionaries in traditional book form against the ethereal internet. It’s a poser that crops up each year for Ferrymead Rotary members and several schools. For some years now Ferrymead Rotary has supplied colourful illustrated dictionaries for year 4 children in some local schools. This year 160 dictionaries, in total, were given to Bromley, Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s schools. Each child is given a dictionary to use at school and eventually to take home. In most schools they are used as a class set until the end of the year when the children are able to keep them. The schools say that if the dictionaries were given to the children at the beginning of the year, there would be none in the classroom by the end of the year. And children who came to the school during the year would not

WELL READ: The Ferrymead Rotary Club donated 160 dictionaries to Te Waka Unua, Bromley, and St Anne’s Schools’ year four pupils which the pupils can keep at the end of the year.

have a dictionary to work with. In spite of the growing lure of technology and computerised access to information, teachers say the book dictionaries are still valued and used alongside the internet. For some children, the dictionary will be the first book

they have ever owned. Ferrymead Rotary hopes these dictionaries will help launch the children on a lifelong, reading journey. Ferrymead Rotary is assisted in providing the dictionaries by the Lorna and Bill Boyd Trust. The trust offers all Rotary clubs in New Zealand subsidised dictionaries to give to low-decile schools. If you want to go along and see what we get up to at Ferrymead Rotary you would be very welcome. Phone Kai Tovgaard on 384 9485.

SMALL CHANGE

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community. Kiwi dollars, international currency, small change from your cup of coffee, plus a top-up donation from us, all add up for local charities and community projects.

Push to keep cruise ships returning to Lyttelton National List MP Nuk Korako writes about why cruise ships should be brought back to Lyttelton Tourism is a key industry in the Port Hills electorate. And perhaps more than any suburb, it is vitally important to Lyttelton. Visitors from Canterbury, New Zealand and the world enjoy coming to Lyttelton to enjoy the history, architecture and natural beauty of the town. Lyttelton has often played a key role in the tourism industry for Canterbury as a whole as well. As the entry point for cruise ship passengers, the Lyttelton Port boosted visitor numbers and tourist revenue in both Lyttelton and Christchurch. Of course, all that changed with the earthquakes. And while so much in our city has been rebuilt, and the Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan is progressing well, not enough attention has been paid to rebuilding the infrastructure necessary to bring cruise ships back to Lyttelton. I have appreciated the assur-

ances from Lyttelton Port Company CEO Peter Davie that LPC is committed to seeing a cruise terminal return to the port. But understandably, the Port Company’s main focus is on the areas that give it the best return. A cruise ship terminal has great benefits for Lyttelton and for Canterbury, but the commercial benefit may not match that of the port’s core freight business. That is why the question of rebuilding the cruise terminal is not just one for the Port Company, but also for the cruise ship companies and city council. I will also be speaking with the relevant Ministers about the appropriate level of central Government involvement in making this happen. I know from my own experience in the tourism industry that if we don’t move quickly to bring the cruise ships back to Lyttelton, there’s every chance the cruise companies will move on and it will be harder than ever to bring this vital component of our tourism industry back to town. We need to make sure that doesn’t happen, and I am committed to doing what I can to ensure buy-in from central and local government. •More local views, p11

New identification rules „„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttelton I ALWAYS find it a struggle when we change over from long summer days to the start of autumn. When we put our clocks back it is the final nail in the coffin for summer, and we start the trek into winter. As Easter approaches – the last long weekend before winter sets in – I am pleased to report that we have had a great summer in terms of boating behaviour with very few serious incidents reported to me. Let’s not slack off now. Don’t spoil the great record to date – be careful, follow the Navigation Safety Rules and local bylaws, and simply be courteous to other boaties out there. With the end of the season approaching, one thing I would like you to plan in over the winter is to get your boat upto-date to comply with the new identification rules put in place under the Canterbury Regional Council Navigation Safety Bylaw 2016 part 20. To put this in the simplest terms, any power boat or jet ski that is towed on a trailer, must have the registration number of the trailer displayed on the vessel (letters/numbers to be at least

Pirate’s Corner

90mm in height), visible above the water line on both sides of the vessel. The registration number must be visible to the naked eye from a distance of at least 50m. Any good signwriter will be able to supply lettering and, if you require it, put them on your vessel for you. There are some exceptions to this – if you have a current MNZ or foreign authority number, belong to a sporting body approved by the Harbourmaster, or have the vessel’s VHF call sign displayed then you will already comply. Or if you are visiting Canterbury from another region and meet their identification requirements, you are all good. Read part 20 of the Navigation Safety bylaw 2016. This will advise you of all the identification requirements depending on the type and length of vessel you own. I strongly suggest you check

out the whole bylaw at https:// ecan.govt.nz/do-it-online/harbourmasters-office/recreationalboating/. I am always happy to answer any questions you may have on this or any other boating matter. Best way to find me is by email to gary.manch@ecan. govt.nz. So why so much emphasis on getting ID on your boat? Simple answer: while 99 per cent of you out there are great boaties and comply with the rules, the onr per cent who don’t need to be identified so we can take appropriate action to ensure everyone’s safety. Having an identification system allows enforcement officers to follow up complaints and take appropriate action against the person offending, be it by way of education or other stronger measures such as fines. Anecdotally, where identification is in place, good behaviour increases. It’s a no-brainer really.

Readers respond to a story in last week’s Bay Harbour News about freedom camping still being a problem in Lyttelton Gill Hubert – “There are insufficient sites for campers to go,” Mr Maynard said. Are you kidding me? Go to the many campgrounds in and around Canterbury. Bludgers. Jackie Richardson – So put up a block of facilities. Toilets, coin showers, and kitchen. More tourists more money. Sally Cammock – At least it’s in or near the bin. Pamela Neil –  Make it illegal or stop whinging. The first stage of the Rapanui-Shag Rock Cycleway, which will run from Ferrymead to the central city, has to be re-done because the

concrete laid was not up to standard Kel Mitchelle – You had one job. Maria Quinney – Shocking, get it right. Karene Smith –  Please build these as pedestrian and shared cycleways. Some already built are absolutely impractical. Sawyers Arms Rd/Main North Rd has high kerbs and encroaches into parking and the left turning lane. Stupid. Also trucks on Sawyers Arms Rd will be more prevalent carrying volumes of materials to sites for the Northern Motorway construction. Cyclists here no way. Steve Burge –  The whole city is a joke with these so called town planners. Look at St Asaph St, better off being one lane, at least it would flow better.

Beekeeper’s bid to sting rivals in rally championship GOVERNORS BAY’S Chris McLean is about to take on the NZ Rally Championship in the Ford Fiesta he has spent all summer preparing. McLean, 21, and navigator Sarah Brennan, 25, of Christchurch, will take on New Zealand’s best rally drivers starting with the Rally of Otago this weekend, followed by five further events during the year. The young rally driver grew up in Governors Bay and spent much of his youth with a pair of skis under him. In summer, he’s on the harbour and, in winter, he’s on the snow. McLean was introduced to rallying when he worked at Magnum Motorsport, where he learnt about the workings of car preparation and caught the rally bug. Now a beekeeper, McLean is a rookie in the NZRC this year and will compete for the two-wheeldrive and junior NZRC titles. McLean has so far competed in a handful of South Island events, but has already been noticed as someone with strong potential in the sport. He was selected to receive training with Hayden Paddon. He received tutoring from Paddon and John Kennard, along with fitness and media trainers. McLean and

Brennan have also both received some financial help from the Paddon Foundation. While McLean is new to the championship, navigator Brennan has had several years in the NZRC and has won the 2WD title twice navigating for Christchurch’s Hamish Anderson. “Sarah brings really valuable experience,” said McLean. “She knows what she’s doing calling pace notes, but also how all the procedures work. Having been to these events before means Sarah will be a huge help in my NZRC rookie year.” The 2005 Ford Fiesta McLean now owns has a big history. The car launched the career of 2015 NZRC champion Ben Hunt, who drove the car in 2009 as part of a scholarship. “The car is older but proven,

and we have put in a lot of new parts to ensure it should run reliably all season,” said McLean. The team plan to compete in at least five of the six rounds in this year’s championship. The team is assisted by a lot of Christchurch people, including James Marshall, who helps with the mechanical work and provides some specialist parts. Jeff Judd and the team at Magnum have also provided help and encouragement, while Tony Gosling of Stadium Finance has provided some support. “We hope to make the podium in 2WD, but we will be up against a lot of good drivers in good cars, many of whom have a lot more experience than us,” said McLean. ”If we can get on the podium regularly then that will be a win for us.” •More sport, page 16

SPORTS Sumner look for improvement against Sydenham „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER WILL look to showcase what they displayed in the first 15 minutes of last week’s opening round game when they play Sydenham on Saturday. After suffering a 14-20 loss to Christchurch at the weekend, Sumner will go for their first win against Sydenham at Hospital Corner. Coach Martin Dodgson called the side’s opening round defeat in the Hawkins Cup an “honourable loss” but is hopeful his side has learnt from their scoreless second half. They surrendered a 14-10 half-time advantage. “I was ecstatic with our defence. We had our chances to win it, but overall I was really happy with the guys attitudes,” said Dodgson. “It’s really clear [what] we need to work on this week to get better, and I believe we will be on Saturday.” Sumner was dominant in the first half against Christchurch, scoring two converted tries in the opening 15 minutes. They were also one misguided pass away from a third just before the break. Sydenham opened their campaign by defeating Linwood 43-22.

The next gripping Courtney family adventure from perennial bestseller and fan favourite Wilbur Smith. In a triumphant return to his much-loved Courtney series, Wilbur Smith introduces us to the bravest new member of the famed family, Saffron Courtney. Saffron grows up on a sprawling Kenyan estate, under the watchful eye of her father, prominent businessman and distinguished war veteran Leon Courtney. Her childhood is idyllic, until a family tragedy forces her to grow up much faster than necessary. As she grows into a spirited teenager, her thirst for knowledge and adventures leads her to England, where she finds herself inevitably drawn into the heart of the gathering storm in the lead-up to World War II. Gerhard von Meerbach is the privileged and idealistic younger brother of Konrad von Meerbach, heir to an industrial fortune, and vocal supporter of the Nazi Party. Gerhard struggles to stay true to his principles in an increasingly cruel world. His friendship with a Jewish man places him in danger, and forces him to take a stand against the forces of evil that have overtaken his country and his family. But, unknown to him, he is caught in a trap that could cost him everything he holds dear. As the Second World War looms over them all, Saffron and Gerhard’s worlds collide – but will there be more to unite them than tear them apart? A love story in the time of heroes, War Cry is the latest breathtaking episode in Wilbur Smith’s epic account of one beloved family.

Breaking Ranks by James McNeish

Breaking news, delivered to your pocket. Visit www.star.kiwi anytime, anywhere!

Three distinct stories about three distinct men, but with one thing in common - they all paid the price for standing up for what they believed. From a great writer, three great stories about conscience and consequence. This is the story of three men - a doctor, a soldier and a judge. They are men of rare achievement. The doctor has the gift of saving others but not himself. The soldier disobeys orders and abandons his command post in a bid to die with his men. The judge cares more to uphold a principle than save himself from ruin. All three defy convention in a way that exacts a price. The first two, Dr John Saxby and Brigadier Reginald Miles, destroy themselves. The death of the judge, Peter Mahon, is hastened by his stand for truth and justice on behalf of the victims of New Zealand’s worst air disaster. “New Zealand seems to have the knack of neutralising those who try to foist moral greatness on their countrymen,” James McNeish writes. In Breaking Ranks, the author celebrates three brave men whose guiding spirit - subversion? anarchy? - challenges our assumptions of what it is to be a good New Zealander.

WIN THIS BOOK We have one copy of War Cry by Wilbur Smith to give away, courtesy of Take Note Ferrymead.

Entertainment

CHOOOO CHOOOO !!!! The weekend of 8th& 9th April is Steam Scene’s Annual Steam Extravaganza at McLean’s Island Road. The day is full of working demonstrations where approx. 25 traction engines and steam vehicles will be involved in working displays of sawmilling, sheep shearing, road making, threshing, water pumping, blacksmithing and stone crushing. There will be a number of traction engines visiting Christchurch for the first time as well as the 2 Showman’s engines from the UK. They will return to the UK after this Event. A steam train will be taking people on free rides. The Steam Museum will be running its many stationary steam engines. The steam is generated from a large wood fired boiler and for family fun they can watch the huge model railway run. Food and drink stalls will be on hand for refreshments. Plenty of off road parking. Gates open 9 am with final demonstrations at 3 pm on both days. There is no working Eftpos on site and no dogs permitted. People can get up close to the machines and experience what it was like to operate such vehicles in the old days as well as the sounds and smell generated by them. A miniature train is running with rides costing $2. The major working displays are in covered areas and will be staggered throughout the day making it easy to see how big shiny driving rods and flywheels are linked together to turn steam into power.
