„ By Caitlin Miles OKAINS BAY identity Murray Thacker has died. The 83-year-old, whose great grand parents were early settlers in the Okains Bay area, passed away last week. He was best known for his work with the Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum, which he founded. He collected many historic items over the decades for the museum and he was heavily involved in the annual Waitangi Day celebrations. He was awarded a Queen’s Service Medal for his work. Mr Thacker was once described as being ‘pure Okains’. He was born in 1933 and grew up in Okains Bay, He attended the local school and began his collecting interest of historic items while there. He went onto Christchurch Boys’ High School, trained as a blacksmith, and returned to Okains Bay and developed a successful Hereford stud. The  Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum began as his private collection in his own home, but when the opportunity arose, he purchased the disused Okains Bay Cheese Factory in 1968 and spent the next nine years setting up the museum. •Turn to page 3

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK MURRAY THACKER was a tireless worker for Banks Peninsula, particularly Okains Bay. Last week the 83-year-old passed away (see page 1) and tomorrow he will be farewelled fittingly in Okains Bay. Over the decades Murray collected and preserved many historic items for what would one day be placed in the museum he founded. He was a generational Okains bay person - his ancestors were among the early settlers. On another note congratulations to surfer Harrison Whiteside and other Sumner board riders for standing out at the recent Kaikoura cold water classic. Not so good though for the Sumner rugby boys who have missed out on a top six spot in the division 1 metro competition. They won five on the trot - good form to take into the div 2 play-offs. Good luck. - Barry Clarke

Award for conservation

HARD WORK by the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust has paid off. The trust won the community leadership award at the Green Ribbon Awards for its extensive conservation work in the Port Hills. The awards evening was held at a Parliamentary function co-hosted by Environment Minister Nick Smith and Conservation Minister Maggie Barry. The trust was formed in 2001 out of a project called Wildside set up in the 1980s by a farmer wanting to protect the blue penguins wandering onto his property. Among the trust’s work is liaising with farmers and other groups to protect wildlife with predator traps, keeping streams clean and looking after reserves on Banks Peninsula. Trust general manager

and landowners. Wildside still exists as part oft the trust. The project has seen more than 700 predator traps set over 7000ha, which has enabled a dramatic turn-around in sea bird species in the area. Today, around 25 per cent of the area has been protected through covenants and reserves, allowing the forest to regenerate. The area now boasts the largest private reserve in New Zealand – Hinewai – which covers 1570ha. Said co-ordinator Marie Haley: “We are extremely proud of the years of hard work that have been recognised in this prize and our role as such a forward thinking and acting community that is far ahead in terms of species protection, protecting private forest habitat, predator control, and now, importantly, freshwater protection,” she said.

HELPING: Rebecca Parish and Marie Haley from the ‘Wildside’ project accepted the 2017 Green Ribbon Award for community leadership on behalf of the trust.

Maree Burnett said the award is national recognition and a

testament to the efforts of the dedicated Wildside community

Historian and museum founder passes away people and commissioning the construction of the Whakaata and Pataka and the erection of the Whare Taonga. Mr Thacker was awarded a

Queen’s Service Medal shortly after gifting the museum collection. In 2009, he was honoured by the Canterbury History Foundation with the

A.C Rhodes History Medal. His funeral service will be held in the Old School on Okains Bay Rd tomorrow at 1.30pm.

PLAN TO CHANGE Reserve Concern over Britomart Memorial Reserve not portraying the significance of the area has led the Bank Peninsula Community Board to look into a possible landscape plan. City council staff advised the community board that the Akaroa reserve does not clearly portray the importance and significance of the area. The memorial inside the reserve was unveiled in 1898 to commemorate raising the British flag in 1840. There is a statue, with a small plaque and a flag. NEW CAR PARK A car park will be constructed at Robinsons Bay Reserve. The reserve committee has worked with the city council to plan a car park for the area to make it easier for people using the reserve, as it can get wet and muddy during the winter. There is a historic old school site at the reserve, which the public access from via a short walk. PLAY EQUIPMENT UPGRADE Okains Bay Reserve will get new play equipment Swings and a slide are expected to be delivered to the reserve by the end of the month. It is expected to cost $18,000 for the equipment and $10,000 for the installation including safety surfacing. The current equipment has reached the end of its life and needs to be updated.

Redcliffs residents surveyed „ By Caitlin Miles A SURVEY on the Redcliffs residents’ response to the Kaikoura earthquake and tsunami has been carried out. Following the 7.8 Kaikoura earthquake which struck shortly after midnight on November 14 a tsunami warning was issued for residents living around the Christchurch coastline. It caused confusion for people in the area, unsure of where or when to go. As a result, the Redcliffs Residents’ Association decided to set up an emergency response team and carry out a survey in the area on how people responded and what they thought of the planning. The survey was distributed to about 250 residents through an email mailing list and several hard copies were also distributed. From the survey 50 in total responded with different numbers answering different questions as they felt they applied to them. The responses were analysed, but percentages are only approximate due to the small overall numbers. Redcliffs Residents Association

WARNING: The lagacy of the Kaikoura quake and the potential for a tsunami.

secretary Pat McIntosh said the main reason for carrying out the consultation was to see how people reacted as the emergency response team plans ahead for the possibility of other disasters. “The reactions will certainly influence our plan as we move

forward,” Dr McIntosh said. Survey responses Is your house in the evacuation zone? Two out of 49 people answered, “Don’t know”. Did you evacuate your house and by what means?

Six people decided not to go, four were not in the evacuation zone anyway, one said they might have gone but they did not have a plan. All 35 who left their homes evacuated by car. No-one evacuated on foot, by bicycle or by motorbike. No-one said they

were unable to go. What time did you leave the house? The question did not specifically ask if the evacuation was before or after the activation, however, 16 people also said they responded to the warning sirens. Nearly half (16/35) of those who evacuated left within one hour of the earthquake, ie before the official tsunami warning was issued, and at least 23 of 35 think they had gone before 2 a.m. What route did you take? Twenty five went up the hill behind Redcliffs or to Mt Pleasant, four went into town over the Ferrymead Bridge and five went to Sumner or somewhere else. Did you take any . . .? One-third of people went by themselves or with other adults in their house, one-third took children, one-third took neighbours, relatives and people not living with them or vulnerable people. A quarter also took pets. How did you know to evacuate? Some people gave more than one answer here, 41 people responded to this question.

over quake response The nature of the earthquake itself prompted evacuation for seven people, advice from radio or TV for 12, advice from social media or the internet was also 12, other advice – like being contacted by friends or relatives for 13 and 16 responded to the warning sirens. Did you encounter any problems with your evacuation? Nearly 90 per cent of respondents did not describe any problems. However, there were several comments about a partner not wanting to go, one respondent had problems with their toddler and infant who were unsettled in the car and one noted that the road was impassable higher up as cars were “parked so intensively it had blocked the road; people were also driving very erratically”. How did you know when to return home? Some people gave more than one answer. Forty people answered this question. Half of the people that responded to this question said they waited for advice from radio and TV, six got advice from social media/the internet. Fifteen said they decided for

themselves. Several waited at the cordon and two people commented that the sirens stopped and they took this to mean they could return.

Would you do anything differently next time? There were 42 responses to this question. Fourteen said they would not

do anything differently. Twenty eight said they would. There were 18 comments about going sooner and not waiting for the sirens. People described making new plans following this experience. Two people would evacuate across town to get away from the noise of the sirens and one would invite more people to stay with them. Summary From the findings Dr McIntosh said it was encouraging that only two people said they did not know if they were in the evacuation zone, as this suggests a high level of awareness of local risk. Dr McIntosh said there were a large number of comments regarding the initial confusion about whether or not an evacuation was needed and about the difficulty in knowing when it was safe to return home. Many people also commented that they would go earlier in any similar event in future. An emergency response co-ordinator has also been appointed to link Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant and Sumner response teams together for future emergency planning.

In Brief TRACK ENHANCEMENTS Changes to the Urumau Reserve track have been proposed by the Allandale Reserve Management Committee. One option would keep most of the existing track through the reserve but would add steps and landings in the steeper areas. The other option would include a new route, which would involve traversing gullies and would require a suspended bridge as well as steps and landings. The first option would cost $30,000 and the second $50,000. WORKING GROUP BREAKS UP The Little River Issues Working Party has disbanded. The party was started after a report was prepared called Issues and Options for Little River: A Scoping Document. The group was set up in 2015 to address the issues raised in the document. A potential co-ordinator may join the Little River Wairewa Community Trust to continue working with the community on evolving issues from the document. ROAD CLOSURES Foster Tce in Lyttelton will reopen on Tuesday after being closed for a month while ultra-fast broadband was installed. As work on the installation continues, roads around the area will be closed and reopened. Gilmour Tce from Randolph Tce will be closed from June 21 to July 20 so the installation to be completed.

DIG IN: The guests enjoyed the three-course meal that was put on to celebrate the success of the market.

Residents dine out to celebrate farmers’ market TO CELEBRATE the community working together to create the Mt Pleasant Farmers’ Market, a long lunch was held to celebrate its birthday. The market was set up six years ago to support people after the February 22, 2011, earthquake – and it’s still going, offering the same support. With no supermarkets close by and a limited amount of food and water available, Mt Pleasant

resident Tom Davies decided to set up a market to help people get what they needed. Since it started the market’s key role has shifted a little. While there isn’t an emergency associated with it any more, it still provides people with what they need. The long lunch was held to celebrate this and involved fresh produce often sold at the market through a three-course meal

The devotion to her community and her professionalism was incredible,” Ms Rutland said. A team of volunteers helped in the kitchen and served the food. Local musician Mike Lee

played for the guests and The Estuary Trust hired native greenery from Trees for Canterbury as their contribution. Ms Rutland said even after all this time the market was still widely used by locals. She said since the event was such a success, they are now planning for next year’s event. Money raised from the lunch has gone back into the market to help improve it.

Akaroa clock to tick again „ By Caitlin Miles THE ICONIC Akaroa Service Centre clock will stay in storage until the centre repairs are completed next year. Akaroa residents have been wondering what happened to the clock, which prompted the Banks Peninsula Community Board to ask city council staff where it was. Community Andrew Rutledge board chairwoman Christine Wilson said it was a matter of “curiosity” that lead them to ask the question. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the clock is in storage with a horologist – a person who works on clocks. That is where the clock will stay until the city council completes repairs on the service centre – which is expected to be finished in February next year. The service centre was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The clock was removed from the centre following the quake for conservation work and to check

all the internal mechanisms and paint the exterior. Community board member Janis Haley said the clock has been a part of the service centre since she was a child. “It is very iconic for the area, ever since I was a kid it has been there,” Ms Haley said. It cost $8047 to carry out the conservation work on the clock. Repair work on the service centre began in April last year and was expected to be finished

by the start of this year, but has been delayed The building is now at 100 per cent of the new building standard but remains closed while internal fit outs and plans are done. Mr Rutledge said the interior scope of the works had changed and the city council needed to consider all of the users and stakeholders. He said the process required considerable consultation then a

redesign. As a result, the completion date was pushed out until next year. The first stage of the project involved scaffolding the building and making it weather tight, then contractors began the external repairs to the roof and external painting.. The city council budgeted $965,000 for the project. Mr Rutledge said $907,000 has been spent on the repairs so far.

Lyttelton sewer project starts next month „ By Caitlin Miles WORK ON the $52.3 million Lyttelton wastewater project will begin next month. The first phase of the city council project will involve the installation of the sewer pipe through the Lyttelton Tunnel. New Zealand Transport Agency, which manages the tunnel, has engaged McConnell Dowel to do the work. It will be carried out because the resource consent that currently allows for wastewater to be discharged into Lyttelton Harbour is going to expire, along with the Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour wastewater treatment plants. An Environment Court decision meant the city council needed to find a new way to treat the wastewater. The new plan involves buried submarine pipelines from the Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour’s wastewater treatment plants to a new pump station on Simeon Quay by the Lyttelton road tunnel portal and through to Ferrymead and on to the Bromley treatment plant.

Heathcote Valley pupils after Festival ready to odd jobs to fund school camp light up Lyttelton PARENTS OF pupils from Heathcote Valley School are encouraging their children to raise money to cover their own camp fees. The year 7 and 8 pupils are in the final stages of planning for the end of year camp. They will spend four days at Peel Forest Eco Lodge learning teamwork, self-management, confronting self-doubt and learning more about the environment. The camp is often seen as the highlight for the senior pupils every year. However, it’s not a cheap experience. It costs $350 per pupil, which parents have usually paid and fundraised for. This year is different though; the school and pupils’ parents are encouraging the children to get involved in the fundraising efforts. The school is asking the Heathcote Valley commuPERFORMERS: Year 8 pupils Annelise nity to offer any jobs the Clark and Coby Jansen performed an 11 and 12-year-olds could original song and covers outside St handle, such as stacking Martins New World, raising $63.90 for their wood, painting fences, school camp. cleaning cars, and raking

leaves. The school has an hourly rate of $10 an hour or a set amount for a larger job. The pupils are getting on board with the project – they have come up with many more great ideas, such as bake sales, busking and dog walking. Some are already under way. To encourage the pupils further, there are also prizes for those who raise large sums of money. If students raise more than $350 the extra money will then go into a general fund to support pupils who are unable to attend due to financial hardship. For the children’s safety, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the job and it is the responsibility of that parent or guardian to be comfortable with the arrangements and their safety. If you have some jobs you think the pupils could do, phone the school on 384 1058 and leave your name and number. They will call back and get a job description.

Lyttelton pupils plan outdoor learning space „ By Caitlin Miles THE CREATION of an outdoor learning space is the latest plan for Lyttelton Primary School. Principal Brendan Wright said an empty patch of grass at the school was a good spot to create an outdoor learning space. Mr Wright said the first thing they had to do was figure out what activities would best suit the spot. “We identified that a learning space of some sort was the main thing,” Mr Wright said. The pupils have suggested several ideas as to what could be included in the space, including a small garden, quiet area to reflect and think, seating and possibly even pizza ovens. “If it’s a lovely sunny day, it might be nice to be working

outside, and we want somewhere to be able to do it,” he said. Mr Wright said since Lyttelton was an enviroschool, the space needs to incorporate nature and have a positive effect on the surrounding environment. The school has decided to carry out consultation and invite parents and the wider Lyttelton community to have their say on what they would like to see included. Mr Wright said they hope to get lots on interest from the community before closing the consultation. He said he was already aware of several “connections” within the community which were interested in being involved and putting the plan into action once the details have been finalised.

Using 3D printing technology to alleviate hearing aid stigma A GROUP of students from van Asch Deaf Education Centre turned their design ideas into 3D printed reality. The six students aged 17 to 20, who are either deaf or hard of hearing, took part in a course ran through the city libraries to extend their knowledge in 3D printing. They now design and produce 3D printed work of their own. City council learning specialist Danny McNeil gave the students lessons in how to design their own 3D printing ideas along with the help of an interpreter. They’ve made mementoes for themselves, such as badges and bookmarks

and prototypes of fun education resources, which they hope could be used by deaf children around the country. At the moment, they are prototypes, butvan Asch Deaf Education Centre teacher Glenn Dolby says it’s possible they could be mass produced in the future. They include brightly coloured robots that can be used to teach primary school children colours, and fun toy hearing aids that can be put on toys to help remove the hearing aid stigma some young people experience. Mr Dolby says the course and their work since has “broadened their dreams and their ideas of art.”

“It’s given them a taste of what computers and printers are capable of. One of the students is now studying design at Hagley College. For them to see their ideas go from the computer to something tangible in their hands is quite powerful,” Mr Dolby said. Mr McNeil said it has been inspirational to see what the students can create with the skills they’ve learned. “Libraries help provide access to emerging technologies in the form of sharing knowledge and facilities, and that’s worth celebrating.” The centre also has a small 3D printer with limited capability.

Make your opinion known on the Redcliffs School site List MP for the Port Hills, Nuk Korako writes about his support for the new Redcliffs School site and encourages people to make their views known through the submission process Redcliffs residents have until June 26 to submit on the city council’s proposal for a land swap between Redcliffs Park and the Redcliffs School Main Rd site. This is the next step in the proposal to bring Redcliffs School back to Redcliffs. The proposal is that the city council will sell Redcliffs Park to the Ministry of Education, while the Crown will continue to own the Redcliffs School site, and that site will be managed as a reserve. I understand the concerns of some residents who live close to the park who feel this proposal will negatively affect them. I do hope those who have concerns have been able to attend the city council’s drop-in sessions and

have access to full and accurate information to assist them with their submissions. Personally, I am wholeheartedly in support of this proposal. My position has always been that I want to see Redcliffs School stay in the community, but I have not been convinced that the current Main Rd site is a good place for the school to return to. I see Redcliffs Park as the best option to keep the school in the community, and I believe it is in the interests of the whole community to have the school return. But I will not be the one making this decision. A hearings panel consisting of city councillors Sarah Templeton, Andrew Turner and Glenn Livingstone, along with Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board members Darrell Latham and Tim Lindley, will hear the submissions on this issue, and make their recommendations in a report to the city council. The city council will make the final decision on the land swap, and the community consultation will be a very important part of that decision making process. Whatever your view, it is important that you make your voice heard through the submission process. This decision affects members of the Redcliffs community in different ways, and it is only by hearing from the community that the city council can be fully informed and make a decision with the best interests of the community at heart.

Protect yourself for up to 3 months from cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of colds & flu. Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the prevention of secondary bacterial infections associated with cold and flu. Buccaline provides active immunisation against bacterial colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are often caused by bacterial infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are frequently made worse by an additional bacterial infections and take longer to recover from. Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly improves resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking Buccaline at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the middle of the cold season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with some liquid one-hour before breakfast or lunch.

Ask your pharmacist if Buccaline is right for you. Note: Buccaline is not intended as an alternative to influenza vaccination. Pharmacist-Only medicine. Always read the label and use as directed.

Rotary tradition for Lego loving family Ferrymead Rotary have hosted a Lego competition every year since 2009. Club member Barbara Crooks writes about the competition and some long-standing competitors It’s hard to imagine Ferrymead Rotary Lego without the Hayes. The club has been running the contest for primary school children since 2009 – and the Hayes family from Mt Pleasant has been at every one of them. Mother Hayley Hayes said it had become “a family tradition”. “It’s something we do every year on the first Sunday of the cold, winter school holidays. We head down the hill with our buckets, tubs and trays,” Ms Hayes said. The Hayes Lego love affair began with the then eight-yearold Spencer at the first Rotary contest in 2009. This year his 12-year-old and eight-year-old brothers will both be part of the annual event at the Heathcote Valley School on Sunday, July 9.

CREATIVE: Spencer Hayes in 2012 with his Lego model of the Christ Church Cathedral pre-earthquake. Spencer has competed in the Ferrymead Rotary Lego contest several times.

Spencer, now 16, will be there too. Not as a competitor, but with his special Lego interpretation based on the Beatles famous Yellow Submarine hit from the 1960s. He will add it to the dis-

play but it will not be part of the competition. Back in 2012 he produced a Lego depiction of the Christ Church Cathedral in preearthquake form (ironically

still highly relevant). Music and drama have become major interests for Spencer, but he enjoys producing these Lego one-offs. “Between the three of them, Dad still gets to play as well,” Ms

Hayes said. The Ferrymead Rotary contest is open to children from any primary and intermediate school. Most come from schools in the Bay Harbour area, but some have journeyed across town to enjoy the fun. The contest caters for team and individual work. Team events are run on agegroup basis – years 1 and 2; 3 and 4; f5 and 6; 7 and 8. Teams make models on a given theme from Lego blocks supplied by Lego New Zealand. Teams can be organised beforehand or you can just arrive and form a team on the day. In the individual events, competitors bring models with them on the day. These can be originals or copied from a design. Many of these models have been very imaginative interpretations, and many are complex works with working parts. •The 2017 Rotary Lego Contest will run from 9.30am to noon on July 9 at Heathcote Valley School.

Sumner’s winning streak not enough to make top six „ By Gordon Findlater A FIFTH straight win for Sumner didn’t prove enough to sneak them into the top six of the division 1 metro competition. Celebrating club day at St Leonards Square on Saturday, a final 15-minute blast saw Sumner prevail 48-23 against Marist Albion. Unfortunately for the seasiders, their hopes of qualifying for the end of season section one top six competition wasn’t in their own hands. They also needed Belfast to defeat sixth placed Burnside. However, Burnside prevailed 34-19. Although they would have loved to be in the top six, coach Martin Dodgson says the team will now turn their attention to continuing their winning streak in section two. “The wave is on a roll,” said Dodgson. “Saturday was by far the best performance from our senior squad. Not only from our team but the division 2 team played outstanding and narrowly lost 7-10 to Christchurch who are second.” Sumner’s division 1 side were solid in the first half. Tries to No 8 Dylan Nel and lock Josh Loader gave their side a 15-11 advantage at the break.

FIRST FIVE: Nik Cumming scored an intercept try and slotted six goals for Sumner on Saturday. PHOTO: ROZELLE MAY

Marshall Suckling crossed the line for Sumner mid-way through the second 40 but the real action was left for the final 15 minutes of the game which saw Tom Crozier, Nik Cumming, Willie Sakura and Peri Marks all cross the line as Sumner ran away with the result. First-five Cumming made five conversions and a penalty kick on his way to a man of the match performance, which included some well-angled kicking into touch and an intercept try. Sumner also had a special recruit for their club day with former Australian international

and current Crusaders winger Digby Ioane running out for the first half against Marist Albion as he continues his recovery from injury. “We might have been guilty of sitting back and thinking, come on Digby do something, but he played well and got involved. We had a few people getting him to sign things after the game,” said Dodgson. Sumner begin their section two campaign on Saturday and will be targeting a top two finish which would see them play-off for silverware against the bottom two teams from section one.

SPORTS

The Ferrymead Bays 10th grade Torpedoes celebrated a 6-2 win over Cashmere Technical Blue at the weekend. The team are currently preparing for the Christchurch International Cup to be played at the Christchurch Football Centre next month. The cup, now its second year, will host around 80 teams from around the AsiaPacific region. The Torpedoes are currently competing in the top 10th grade Mainland Football competition. So far this season they’ve won four matches, drawn two and lost one.

Sumner surfers show their class in the Kaikoura cold water classic SUMNER surfers held their own against a top rated field from throughout the country at the annual Kaikoura Cold Water Surf Classic. Harrison Whiteside continued his recent run of form by winning the junior event. The Kaikoura contest held over Queens Birthday weekend was the final of the South Island surfing circuit for the season. The series runs over four events around the South Island. Whiteside’s performance in Kaikoura saw him comfortably win both the open men and junior circuits. Sumner were also well represented in the junior women’s event in Kaikoura with Estella Hungerford finishing second and Ava Henderson third. Fellow local Rodney Somegyvari put in a strong performance in the open men’s section to place second with 15.53 points behind event winner Levi O’Connor, of Kaikoura, who posted a near perfect score of 19.5 points. Somegyvari was also second in the seniors, with Luca Brunotti third and Ben

Aaron's surf report

Rees fourth. William Wallace was a close second in the longboard final, while Alan Temoananui was third in the masters. The event attracted record numbers. With more than 130 entries, it was great to see so many people making the effort to support Kaikoura. One of the up sides from the earthquake is that the event was able to run all through the high tide at Meatworks even with a small swell. In the past, the waves would stop breaking at high tide so in this case the uplift has been a bonus. In the final South Island circuit standings, Wallace finished second in the longboard. In the women’s longboard. Sumner took out the top three with Lucy Johnson, Brittany Andrews and Nina Young making up the top three. In the grand masters, Neill Robb was second.

CHAMP: Harrison Whiteside (left) did enough in Kaikoura to secure both the junior and open men’s titles in the South Island circuit.

SURF’S UP: Rodney Somegyvari showed his class in Kaikoura to finish second in both the open and senior men’s competitions.

Sumner boardriders club Point Surf Team finished fourth on the club standings moving their way closer to the top position which they once held for many years. There has also been some exciting news for Lucy Temoananui who has been selected to represent New Zealand at the ISA World Paddleboarding Champs in Denmark this spring. She will be training hard over the winter in preparation for the event.

Boaties get trained up IN MY previous article I mentioned that attending a boating safety course would be a great idea to up-skill yourself if you have not attended one already. I received a little bit of feedback in relation to this and one comment was about the cost of completing these courses, either by attending the two-day course, day skipper course or completing it online. I appreciate the fact that some may find the cost of doing these courses a bit of a strain, but when you think about the considerable investment you have in your boat, be it a kayak, paddleboard, jet ski or power boat, the $157 is a relatively small amount to pay when the knowledge gained may save you from getting into difficulty.

save the money. The other issue that was brought up was that the courses are not available in all centres. And the answer to this is simple: There is the ability to do an online module and then have your work assessed. So sorry, no excuses really are there? Check out http://www.boatingeducation.org.nz/courses/ for more information. Knowledge is power. The analogy I use is that you do not drive a car without learning the rules, so why would you take a boat out? Being on the water can be as dangerous as driving on the road if you do not have the skills or knowledge to safely get to and from wherever you are going. On that note, be safe out there. If you have any queries about recreational boating or the rules, I am always happy to help – just email me at gary.manch@ecan. govt.nz

A DATA error has held up upgrading Akaroa’s wastewater system. The city council now needs more time to consider the options for the upgrades for the ageing wastewater system after a technical error was found in some of the data, which was used to assess different upgrade options. The community was recently consulted on five options to upgrade the system and the preferred option was to reuse the town’s treated wastewater via a non-potable “purple pipe’’ network. The water could be used for things such as watering gardens or washing cars. But as the design team carried out further assessments on the viability of the purple pipe option, a discrepancy in flow readings was noticed. Further investigation revealed a flow meter was not working properly and was giving inaccurate readings. These readings were used by consultants to estimate the land area needed for the options that involved reusing the wastewater to irrigate pasture and trees, and to estimate the costs of each of the five options.

Council Head of Three Waters and Waste John Mackie said the readings underestimated the flow of wastewater, especially at times of low flow. As a result, two new flow meters will be installed to record new data. “These flow meters will be calibrated to ensure accurate and validated data is recorded,” Mr Mackie said. Mr Mackie said the new data should be available to the design

team next week. The design team will then analyse the data and assess any impact on the five options that were consulted on. “It is possible that when the new data is applied, it may show that design estimates relating to land area and costs have been underestimated,” Mr Mackie said. This problem means the project team will not be able to report to the Hearings Panel as planned this month.

News 4K technology for St George’s Hospital FROM HOLLYWOOD to the operating theatre – technology used in blockbuster movies is now being used to help Christchurch surgeons during operations. The 4k imaging technology has been incorporated in the five new operating theatres built as part of the redevelopment at St George’s Hospital. The technology has been used to film big screen movies, including the Hunger Games and Spectre. It produces a resolution four times higher than the traditional Full HD, making it possible to zoom in on the smallest details and magnify them. That will allow surgeons to watch what they are doing live on a screen during keyhole surgery, and zoom in as they work to see right to the individual blood vessels. Hospital chief executive Greg Brooks said the technology would directly benefit patients. “The redevelopment has provided us with a key opportunity to invest in worldleading innovation to provide our patients with superior care,” he said.

ADVANCED: One of the new operating theatres at St George’s, where the new 4k technology will make it easier for surgeons to do keyhole surgery. The technology now in use has been used in big screen movies, including the Hunger Games.

Sample the shops and cuisine of Seoul „ By Mike Yardley WHEN I mentioned to my Korean hairdresser in Christchurch that I was heading to Seoul, his response was hardly reaffirming. “Why would you want to go there?” Sure, Seoul doesn’t enjoy the reputational hype of Tokyo, Shanghai or Bangkok, but as a quick stopover or side-trip, the city struck me as immensely engaging. Arriving into Seoul by fast train from Incheon Airport, one of the first imposing landmarks to stop me in my tracks was Namdaemun, the city’s South Gate, resplendently restored after being bombed during the Korean War. The gate forms part of Seoul’s old city walls, of which 70 per cent are remarkably intact. Over 600 years old, the 18km circuit wraps around the city core and threads together the four guardian mountains that keep watch over Seoul. The city continues rebuilding the missing chunks but if you’re up for a power-walk, in every sense, head to the Bukaksan section. The highest of the four peaks at 342m, it stands guard over Korea’s seat of power and the summit viewpoint overlooks the Blue

CEREMONY: A highly theatrical changing of the guard is performed daily at the entrance gate of Gwanghwamun. Right – The city’s South Gate, restored after it was damaged during the Korean War.

House, Korea’s splendid presidential palace. There’s a variety of royal palaces clustered around the central city including Gyeongbokgung, Seoul’s premier palace which has performed a Phoenix-like resurrection, from the cinders of destruction. It was from here that the Joseon Dynasty ruled the roost for 600 years, before the Japanese muscled in. A highly theatrical changing of the guard is performed daily, purely as a patriotic fist-pump, around the entrance gate of

Gwanghwamun. The blaze of colourfully-costumed regalia is loved by the locals as much as the selfie-stick toting tourists. Gyeongbokgung translates as the Palace of Shining Happiness, a colossal compound of astounding architecture, ornamental gardens and vivid history. It previously contained 800 buildings and 200 gates. The Joseon kings had several thousand servants at their disposal within the royal household, including 500 ladies-in-waiting and 400 eunuchs.

Trying to get your head around the sheer extravagance of this imperial relic is best decoded with a good guide. I explored the palace as part of a city tour with VIP Travel, who run a great-value and illuminating guided sightseeing service. www.vviptravel.com Perfectly perched in the heart of Seoul’s cultural district, Courtyard by Marriott Seoul Namdaemun delivers a distinct experience, with the carnival colour of Namdaemun Market, right across the road.

Not since Jurassic Park has digging up the past been so dangerous. Michael Crichton, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, returns to the world of paleontology in this recently discovered novel - a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting. Ancient discoveries. An epic rivalry. An adventure that made history. The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. In much of the country it is still illegal to espouse evolution. Against this backdrop two monomaniacal paleontologists pillage the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils, while surveilling, deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars. Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to survive a summer in the west to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But when the paranoid and secretive Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice. William is forced to join forces with Cope and soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger, and William’s newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache, which pits him against some of the West’s most notorious characters.

Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Initiative Eric Van Lustbader

General Boris Karpov, head of the feared Russian FSB, is dead but the cyber attack he launched at the heart of the US’s nuclear defence network lives on. Who has taken over the operation? Karpov trusted only one man: Jason Bourne. But can Bourne be working against his own country? The sequel to The Bourne Enigma. Jason Bourne is on the run. His old friend, General Boris Karpov, is dead. But Karpov, once head of the feared FSB, lives on in the cyber weapon he devised before his death, capable of penetrating the heart of America’s final defense: nuclear launch codes. Both the NSA and Meme LLC, a black off-site cyber opertion, believe Bourne has taken over the enterprise, and a kill team is sent to terminate him for committing treason against the US. Flushed from cover, hunted by assassins, wounded and nearly killed, Bourne is forced to join forces with his bitterest enemy, a Somali magus named Keyre, whose terrorist organization Bourne once decimated. Now Keyre is more powerful than ever and he might help Bourne, but to what end? From the Greek island of Skyros to Somalia and the underbelly of Moscow, Bourne must unravel the mystery of Boris Karpov’s last legacy, a weaponized code that may very well bring about the unthinkable: a violent end to America.
