Timeball Station rebuild set to start WORK TO rebuild part of the historic Lyttelton Timeball Station will begin early next month – a year after it was supposed to. The sod-turning for the $3 million work to rebuild the timeball and tower will take place on July 5 to mark the start of on-site work. When completed, people will again be able to see the timeball drop at 1pm each day, Nick Chin as it did since 1876 to provide ships in Lyttelton Harbour with a timekeeping service. An automated timeball mechanism will be housed inside the tower. But as part of the requirement to get building consent, visitors will not be able to enter. Heritage Destinations general manager Nick Chin said retaining and repairing the existing

mechanism was looked into, but the automated option was chosen. “The existing mechanism was extensively damaged during the 2011 quakes and was in an extremely fragile state when retrieved. Even if restored there was no guarantee how long all the parts would last, so maintenance costs and longevity were issues.  Also, with the public unable to access inside the new tower to view the existing

mechanism if rebuilt, it was felt an automated mechanism was a better option.” He said putting the original mechanism on display at a local museum was an option. The timeball, tower with original brickwork, and the flagpole will be rebuilt. The original residence would not. The grounds will also be landscaped similar to what they were like, to commemorate the significant maritime feature

that had been an integral part of Lyttelton’s history. The station was severely damaged in the September 4, 2010, February 22, and June 13, 2011, earthquakes. Originally, work to restore it was due to start in July last year. But the project was put on hold to avoid conflict with the road works on Sumner Rd and Reserve Tce to prevent disruption. Mr Chin thanked key donors who helped fund the rebuild

project, and the patience from the community.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK GREAT NEWS on the front page today – work on the timeball and tower is about to start. The Lyttelton Timeball Station has been a Canterbury icon since 1876 and, while the living quarters of the building won’t be rebuilt, it’s still a step forward. With cruise ships coming back to Lyttelton, now is the time to get things moving in the port. Apart from London St, downtown Lyttelton, if I can describe it as that, is an eyesore. I took some overseas visitors to Diamond Harbour recently. They zipped across the harbour on the ferry for a look around Lyttelton. They didn’t stay too long. The wharf where they berthed was uninviting and something desperately needs to be done to the quake damaged buildings. So good to see the timeball progress. – Barry Clarke

Will anything be done?

Dyson thinks council will sit on its hands PORT HILLS MP Ruth Dyson is worried nothing will be done about the St Andrews Hill Rd intersection. More than 600 public submissions were made on the controversial intersection after months of debate over its layout. But Ms Dyson (left) believes city council staff will recommend the Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board just receives information from the recent community consultation, with no compulsion to act. She makes her comments in her regular column in Bay Harbour News today (page 13). The city council received 640 submissions about the potential changes to the intersection, which offered the public three options to choose from. Now city council staff will pres-

OPTIONS: 640 submissions were made on the controversial St Andrews Hill Rd intersection.

ent the community board a report on the options and details of the submissions before it makes a decision on what will be done to improve the intersection. Option one proposed to leave the intersection, option two would see new traffic signals on St Andrews Hill Rd and new pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd and option three is to ban right turns from Bridal Path Rd onto Main Rd. The third option was the

least popular at the time of the consultation as it would make it difficult for people living in Heathcote to get to Redcliffs and Sumner. Ms Dyson said she was frustrated by the lack of options available for people to comment on and is worried nothing will now be done. This is the second time the city council has carried out public consultation on the intersection layout. When the Ferrymead

bridge was reconstructed the city council proposed the layout which is currently in place. However, nearby residents were sceptical of it and had safety concerns. The community raised its concerns with the community board, which then prompted the city council into looking at other options for the intersection. The city council carried out public consultation at the start of the year.

In Brief LIGHTS FESTIVAL The Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights celebrations started yesterday. Throughout the week there will be plenty of light installations to look at around the town centre before the street party on Friday night. The street party begins at 6.30pm and will involve a parade and various performances from groups and artists before the fireworks display at 8pm. London St, between Canterbury and Oxford Sts, will be closed from noon on Friday. At 2pm, another section of London St from Dublin St will be closed along with Canterbury St from Norwich Quay to Winchester St. The roads are planned to reopen on Saturday at about 1am. For more information, go to nz/festivals/festival-of-lights​ DECISION ON BACHES The city council will decide tomorrow if it should establish a working party to investigate and make a recommendation on whether baches should be allowed to continue to remain on city council land at Taylors Mistake, Boulder Bay and Maori Garden.

News Repairs begin to bring historic hall back to life A 120-YEAR-OLD community hall is finally getting some much needed repairs and upgrades. The historic Allandale Community Hall near Teddington was badly damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. A major $500,000 repair project has now started and the aim is to have the hall back in the community’s hands by summer. Allandale Reserve management committee chairman Stuart Bould said the facility had been a central point for the community for many years and, once repaired, it would continue to draw people back to the area for recreation. “When it was shaken apart we could see it wasn’t water tight, so a few of us went down and propped it up and did as best we could,” Mr Bould said. City council project manager Michael Sheffield said the hall had been a hub for more than 120 years. Mr Sheffield said the community had been heavily involved in the planning process for the repairs. “We’ve been through a great process with the wider com-

munity, reviewing the repairs with them and looking at what will best meet their needs in the future,” Mr Sheffield said. He said the building was “very badly damaged” to the point that the roof was collapsing and it wasn’t safe to walk inside. The repaired hall will feature new doors on to a deck on the north side of the building, a new kitchen, accessible toilets, new wiring and light fittings and a complete paint inside and out. Mr Sheffield said a builder from Governors Bay had been successful in the tender process and work had already started on the project. The repair works are expected to be completed by early October.

The city council is asking for input from the community about what they think is important and what they want to see in their local area.

News Plan to gift land to museum „„ By Caitlin Miles IT’S BEEN six years since Lyttelton had a museum and now it’s another step closer to making a return to the community. The city council is proposing to gift the land at 33-35 London St to the Lyttelton Historical Museum Society to rebuild a museum. The society’s building on Gladstone Quay was demolished after it suffered damage in the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011, earthquakes. Since then, the society moved more than 8000 items from the museum into storage at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand. The society has spent years looking for a new site to rebuild on, finally deciding the site of the previous Lyttelton Service Centre on London St would be the best place. The service centre was also damaged and demolished following the 2011 earthquake and the site has been empty ever since. The city council has no plans to rebuild on the land. The society has requested the city council gift the land to give them more financial certainty

FUTURE: Lyttelton Historical Museum Society chairman Peter Rough at the site where the new museum is proposed to be built.

as they raise capital for a new building and for ongoing operational costs. Leasing the land would slow down the society’s ability to raise the money needed for a new building. The London St land is valued at $220,000. If the land is gifted and the museum closes for any reason,

the land will be reverted back to the city council. The society needs to raise roughly $6 million for the construction of the building and already has plans in place to do so. It also intends to have a commercial tenant within the building to generate extra income to help with operational costs.

It hoped the museum will be open by 2020. •Consultation on the proposal is open until the end of the month. To make a submission on the proposed gifting of land, go to show/39

In Brief REDCLIFFS SCHOOL LAND SWAP FEEDBACK CLOSING Feedback on the proposed land swap, which involves moving Redcliffs School to Redcliffs Park, closes on Monday. The plan is to exchange ownership of Redcliffs Park for the school site. The swap has been proposed by the Ministry of Education, which wants to exchange the school site it owns in Main Rd for the city council-owned Redcliffs Park on Beachville Rd. Under the proposal, there would be a new park on the current school site and the school would be built on the current Redcliffs Park. Go to consultations-and-submissions/ haveyoursay/show/33 to make a submission. MAJOR HORNBROOK RD CLOSED TEMPORARILY A section of Major Hornbrook Rd, Mt Pleasant, will be closed while ultra-fast broadband is installed. The section from Madeley Rd and Rockview Pl off Major Hornbrook Rd will be closed while trenches are dug for broadband installation. Both sections of roads will be closed from the start of July and the work is expected to be completed in August. A bus stop will be affected, and there will be a temporary lack of parking.

Changing attitudes lower the number

„„ By Bridget Rutherford DRINK DRIVING charges have almost halved in Canterbury over the past decade – a shift police say is down to changed attitudes. The latest drink driving figures show the number of people charged for driving under the influence of alcohol in Canterbury was 1658 last year, compared with 2543 in 2007. Of those, 1604 were convicted last year. There were 2433 convictions in 2007. Nationally, the number has dropped from 27,328 a decade ago, compared with 16,304 in 2016. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart (left) said police were encouraged by the downward trend. “The trauma and grief caused by an alcohol-related serious crash is massive, so less people affected by alcohol on our roads make them safer for all road users and reduces harm in our communities.” He said changing public

attitudes to drink driving was the reason for the decline. It was not seen as acceptable any

more, he said. Inspector Stewart said police had made strategic efforts target-

ing alcohol harm, especially on the roads. “This has been supported by the lower drink driving limits which have encouraged people to think about their drinking behaviour and plan to make it home safely.”   The breath-alcohol limit was lowered from 400mcg/L to 250mcg/L in December, 2014. But the limit that triggered prosecution at court was 400mcg/L. The latest stats did not include the number of people given an infringement notice for driving over the 250mcg/L limit since it changed. But in 2014, the number of people charged in Canterbury was 2235, before dropping to 1852 in 2015 and again in 2016. Bars and pubs have noticed people are more aware of what they were drinking, with many patrons now choosing light beers and wines. Valley Inn Tavern owner Dean Calvert said since the new limit was introduced in 2014, they had noticed patrons were buying a lot more food and snacks to go with their drink. “People are eating before they drive.”

BY THE NUMBERS Number of drink driving charges in Canterbury in the last five years: 2012: 2900 2013: 2472 2014: 2235 2015: 1852 2016: 1658 Number of convictions in Canterbury in the last five years: 2012: 2795 2013: 2392 2014: 2187 2015: 1796 2016: 1604 The sale of lower alcohol beer had also been on the rise, he said. “There’s definitely a lot more people drinking the Monteith’s Mid Strength Ale.” They had a courtesy van for 14 years and it had always been very well used, he said. Sullivans Irish Bar owner Mark Sullivan said they had a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages, as well as low alcohol beer and alcohol-reduced wine. They also sold an Edenvale non-alcoholic wine, he said. “There definitely has been a shift to no-alcohol products.”

of drink drivers He said they had seen an increase in people buying food, and staff monitored their patrons closely and encouraged them to eat. Sullivans manager Subhadra Marshall said: “People are more aware of what they’re drinking.” The statistics showed in Christchurch, 1562 appeared in the district court charged with drink driving last year. It was 2080 in 2007. In comparison, last year 78 people appeared in the Ashburton District Court charged with drink driving, and 170 in Timaru. In 2007, people aged 19-yearsold and under had the most convictions for drink driving in Christchurch with 473. But last year, the number of under-19s convicted had dropped to 154, and the 20-24-year-old bracket was the highest with 323 convictions. That was followed by the 25-29 age bracket with 274. Inspector Stewart said police and communities could not be complacent. People needed to continue to have “hard conversations” with family members, whatever their age, if they were putting them-

•A 38-year-old woman was caught drink driving more than four times the legal limit with her two young children in Rolleston. Melanie Susan Trebilco pleaded guilty to a charge of driving with excess blood alcohol after being caught at a random stop on Tennyson St on December 9. Her alcohol level was 1157mcg/L. Police said she refused to let officers escort her three and nine-year-old children, as the car did not have car seats. She was disqualified from driving for eight months, and fined $1000 in January. •On the same day, another Rolleston mother recorded a reading of 696mcg/L when stopped in Faringdon subdivision with her four-year-old child in the car.

Governors Bay abduction case lead „„ By Andrew King POLICE HAVE a good line of inquiry into identifying a man who tried to abduct a young girl in Governors Bay on Thursday. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner said police have reviewed CCTV footage from the area which has given them an idea of who they are looking for. The girl fought off a man who tried to abduct her in the Governors Bay Hotel car park at about 4.20pm. The incident involved a man described as European, in a red car, possibly a sedan. The girl’s mother told Bay Harbour News her daughter fled her attacker. Governors Bay School board of trustees chairwoman Amanda Derry said they spoke to the family on Thursday and are supporting them. “The person responsible should come forward and get the help they need before we come and knock on their door, which will happen,” Detective Senior Sergeant Worner said. Anyone with information can phone 363 7400. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

WARY: The cliff face behind the Akaroa Fire Station (below) and opposite the lighthouse, both on Beach Rd are monitored and repaired as needed.

Worry over condition of cliff faces „„ By Caitlin Miles CLIFF FACES in Akaroa are being monitored by city council staff after residents expressed concern over their condition. They alerted members of the Banks Peninsula Community Board to their concerns over the state of the cliffs on Beach Rd beChristine hind the Akaroa Wilson Fire Station and opposite the Akaroa Lighthouse. The condition of the seawall has also been called into question. However, city streets main-

tenance manager M ​ ark Pinner, said the slopes behind the lighthouse have been checked by the city council on “a number of occasions.

What’s being done about Canterbury’s water quality?

Community board chairwoman Christine Wilson said, in her personal opinion, concern about rockfall is something to take seriously.

“Since the earthquakes when rockfall concerns are raised it is important to get them fixed as quick as possible, it can be quite concerning,” she said Mr Pinner said loess faces are “fairly resilient” but they are prone to natural weathering and waterlog from rainfall and they are “maintained as needed.” He said the city council is aware of the erosion of the seawall near the fire station. “It is currently being monitored. Council’s structural engineers are inspecting and monitoring the wall, more so after large tidal events, and preparing designs for remediation,” Mr Pinner said.

Look a little deeper at the action being taken to improve our precious water. This year, there are new requirements on farmers to limit the effects of farming on water quality. The majority of farmers are already doing the right thing, but more needs to be done to truly improve our precious water. We are working with farmers so that they know exactly what they need to do. It will take time for these improvements to have an effect on our water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a good start. Look a little deeper at

BANKS Peninsula played an important part in setting the scene of a new movie.​ Pyschological thriller Human Traces was filmed in two locations in the South Island – Banks Peninsula and the Catlins. Human Traces stars Sophie Henderson and Mark Mitchinson as a husband and wife scientist team sent to rid a Subantarctic island of pests. When a mysterious young man arrives at the remote research station, he threatens the couple’s relationship in a hostile wilderness, 750km south of New Zealand. Christchurch-raised director and writer Nic Gorman said Banks Peninsula was chosen for its volcanic rocks and features. “Our fictional location is loosely based on Campbell Island.

Careful you don’t catch hypothermia „„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttleton CONFUSING: Motorists have reported trouble turning right and long queues at the St Andrews Hill/Bridle Path Rd intersection.

Action needed to fix intersection Labour MP Ruth Dyson writes about her frustration over the city council’s consultation process on the St Andrews Hill/Bridle Path Rd intersection Democracy in action or democracy in-action? I received recently the response from the city council following the consultation about the St Andrews Hill/Bridle Path Rd intersection. The consultation was triggered by concern from local residents about the inability to safely access and exit the intersection and the safety issues for cars and cyclists turning left onto Bridle Path Rd and straight across the bottom of St Andrews Hill. This has been an issue of con-

cern from the time of the original design of the post-quake intersection and has continued to be a safety worry. So it’s not surprising that about 600 people put in a submission during the consultation round – a very large number of contributions about a single intersection. I was frustrated during this consultation because the options presented seemed limited. And now my frustration is growing because it looks like city council staff are going to recommend the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board just receives the information. There is no suggestion that anything is actually done as a result. Many of the people who put in a submission have told me that they are really puzzled by this process. Eighteen months ago, there was a public meeting about this and a report prepared for city council. The community

board then rejected the “do nothing” option and started listening to the community. The most preferred of the three options is to install traffic lights just out of the intersection on Bridle Path Rd. This is quite an expensive option but it was still the most popular – not because it was the best of all options, but because it was the best of the three presented for people who wanted improvements. I hope our community board takes action but perhaps some other alternatives could now be trialled. Change the phasing of the green lights to allow better traffic flow.  Put the ‘no go’ area right across the road to allow traffic to get onto Bridle Path Rd. And put a mirror in so we can see round the corner.  Whatever you do, please do something. •Soap Box, page 15

AS I sit at my desk writing this, I look out the window and see a large southerly bearing down on us, bringing with it the usual lousy weather. So I will be spending the day completing long overdue administration, a task that I am sure we all love to hate. However, better to stay warm and dry than go out in the wet and cold when it’s not necessary. If you have decided to let the administration build up even more and go out on your boat in this kind of weather, you need to consider not only the factors we have discussed over the past year about boating safety, but also your own personal safety when it comes to putting yourself, passengers or crew at risk of hypothermia. Hypothermia is reduced body temperature. That happens when a body dissipates more heat than it absorbs and can include symptoms such as shivering, which may stop the hypothermia progressing (shivering is actually a good sign that a person’s heat regulation systems are still active); slow, shallow breathing; confusion and memory loss; drowsiness or exhaustion; slurred or mumbled speech; a slow, weak pulse; and possible loss of co-ordination, fumbling hands and/or stumbling steps. None of which is a pretty picture on board a boat or anywhere else for that matter. In severe hypothermia, a person may be unconscious without

obvious signs of breathing or a pulse. So given the scary list of symptoms – how do you prevent hypothermia? Clearly, staying inside a warm house or office is a good idea. However, I am sure that this is not what you want to hear, especially you hardy types out there who enjoy being out and about in all weathers. If you are going out, first assess the weather and conditions before you set off. If the weather is likely to be wet and cold, dress accordingly. Sometimes it is best to have several layers of warm clothing under the waterproofs so you can always remove a layer if the weather changes and gets warm. If this sounds like advice your mother would give – she’s right. You should always listen to your mother (and me). Cold rain and wind are major factors, so stay out of both if possible. To treat hypothermia – get the person out of the weather or water into a sheltered place as fast as possible. Phone 111 and seek medical assistance immediately. Remove any wet clothing and warm the person’s body core/ trunk up slowly using dry clothing, blankets or whatever you can find. Give warm liquids and try to maintain the warmth until medical assistance arrives. The bottom line is as always – if in doubt, don’t go out. If you do, be aware of the risks and ensure you are ready for any eventuality. Take care out there.

Market Comment The market has been bubbling along. May was a near record month for us at Ray White Ferrymead and Lyttelton. Despite what some pundits may say we’ve found the market to be buoyant and strong. However, what has become more apparent in recent times is to ensure all sellers understand the importance of supplying all relevant information about their property. This is increasingly important when it comes to a prospective purchaser being able to obtain insurance cover. Some insurers seem to be taking a tougher stance on evidence of repair work and it is up to sellers to provide this information prior to going to the market. Trust me, it will save a whole lot of time and anguish by providing the information earlier rather than later! So if you are thinking of selling make sure you have all the information available on the current status of your property, EQC work, repairs and exactly what is covered by insurance.

Elise Chappell Joining our Team Elise has spent the past 2 years working behind the scenes both as a personal assistant to one of our top agents, and as a marketing administrator. She has recently completed her real estate license and we warmly welcome her to our close knit Ferrymead team knowing she will bring a meticulous, organised, and modern service to our bay and seaside customers.

Life should be celebrated

LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board member Darrell Latham talks about recognising community service Recently the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board presented the 2017 Community Service Awards. I had the honour on behalf of the board of addressing recipients. The following are abridged comments from my address. Collectively as a group you are community champions. However, individually you are champions of your community. As a community we need to celebrate achievement because life should not only be lived it should be celebrated. The more you acknowledge achievement then the more there is in life to celebrate. A report released this week showed that while

Graeme Dingle

volunteers numbers have not reduced, the hours that those same volunteers are able to commit to community projects has dropped. People live busy lives and for a variety of reasons it is becoming harder for people to find the time for community projects. All the more reason to acknowledge your contribution and to say thank you. Just recently, the Queen’s Birthday Honours awards were announced. Amongst the recipients to receive a knighthood was Graeme Dingle a mountaineer and outdoor education worker extraordinaire. It was during a traverse that Jill Tremaine gave him advice that he has carried with him ever since. She said to him that life is a cup to be filled not drained. Furthermore,


she told him that he was actually a selfish person. ‘’You’re boring because you are obsessed and you won’t fill your cup until you do things that are good for other people,” she said. That was a huge lesson he said. I went out and borrowed a truckload of money and set up a charity. The Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuit Centre. The motto of the story is to say to you as community champions, thank you for being selfless and not selfish and, for doing things that are good for other people. In doing so your cup is full! Collectively we should all aspire to be the protectors and nurturers of our next generation. Your work serves as an inspirations to others.

Still Pedalling!

Enrolling now for 2018 Message from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofaatu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. As this page shows, the life of a secondary school is busy and varied. Linwood College nurtures personal excellence by providing diverse opportunities to meet individual needs, opportunities that support a personalised learning pathway. This pathway is now opening out to our partner schools. Linwood College is running a cycle of eight-week enrichment programmes for Year 6-8 learners in the

schools in our communities, LinwoodWoolston and the Bays. The programme is very well regarded by the young learners themselves and their schools. Debating was the first topic which culminated in a lively debate held at Sumner School. The present programme is Mathematics and is proving equally valued. Many people are keen to learn more about Linwood College. To this end, I am holding regular evening appointments for families keen to know more and to meet me personally. Please phone the school office, phone 9820100, to book in a time. Nga mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything. My door is open. Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki-Principal

Samoan Speech Competition Success To start winter off with a bang on 1st June, students from Linwood College pitted themselves against other talented Samoan speakers from Christchurch schools, as part of the annual Samoan Speech Competition. Held at Hillmorton High School, the event was opened by Leumu Gali, St Thomas of Canterbury College's Samoan Language teacher. This year’s topic was: 'Maau i ofaga, Maua'a lou faasinomaga' ('Keep your identity alive to thrive'). With more than 100 students competing, Linwood College's Gloria Sua won first place in the Year 11 section with Tala Leupolu (Year 12) achieving third place. Two Year 13s achieved placings wtih Vai Mariner getting second place and Janet Tuiloma, third.

It was Janice Tuiloma’s first competition. She and her twin Janet signed up so that they could make their families proud. Another participant, Havana described how she and others shook with nerves as they prepared to present their speeches. The Nationals which will take place in August 2017 here in Christchurch.

Samoan Language Week Celebrated To celebrate Samoan Language Week, in the first week of June students at Linwood College arranged a number of activities, including a lunch for staff. Students also performed a number of dances, engaging staff in a traditional dance.

May Music Month

Chess Tournament Winners

A crowd of Eastgate Library visitors settled in for double treat – tasty delicacies provided by the library staff accompanied by a peppering of performances by Linwood College students as part of the recent ‘May Music Month’. A funky, hip-hop number by Filipino students and a Bollywood dance followed the Year 7 students’ drama which kicked off the evening. The school band performed many melodious pieces. Surrounded by vibrant colours and sound, the audience clapped along to the smooth reggae tones of Tyrone TePoono as he crooned Six60’s Don’t Forget Your Roots. Adonai Schwenke’s thunderous tones reverberated Tennesse Whiskey’s lyrics throughout Eastgate to a cheering crowd. With a dabble of jazz, a smoky solo by Piper Stewart, a splash of drumming by Luke Barry, one Samoan dance later - onlookers were bursting full from the smorgasbord of

the evening’s cultural flavours. Organisers stated that the event had been inspired by Linwood College's ‘Festival of Nations’ held back in March and hope that this enchanting evening may become an annual event to showcase local talent.

As the nine o’clock bell tolled, the Linwood College hall was abuzz with the humming of table-top timers as students of all ages from across Christchurch competed. This gathering was for the annual Chess Power Interschools Tournament, held on the 22 May. Seven Linwood College students vied against students from nine local schools, achieving twenty-three wins in total. As a result Linwood College secured first place in the tournament. Senior students Marvin Brimon, Joshua Galang and Ly Jefferson Brimon as well as Ivo Craeig Baguingey (Year 8) achieved the four top placings throughout the day. Marvin Brimon came out on top, winning six matches and has been invited to compete in the National Championship to be held in Hamilton in October. Congratulations to you all!

Competition winner Marvin Brimon (Year 13)

Sumner win in spite of player shortage „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER PULLED one out of the bag to complete a remarkable comeback from 0-26 to defeat Marist Albion 28-26 and record their sixth straight victory. However, Sumner coach Martin Dodgson described Saturday’s early events as a comedy of errors and, for some, getting onto the pitch was half the battle. Sumner came into the game with just a two-man reserve bench with Dylan Nel, Marshall Suckling and Poasa Waqanibau all absent due to selection in Canterbury’s starting 15 for tonight’s Ranfurly Shield defence against Wanganui. The situation was made worse when second-five Teariki Matenga dislocated his shoulder during the pre-match warm up, reducing Sumner to a one-man bench. That forced the team to move winger Zach Kibirige into the midfield. Things have a funny way of working out. Regular second-five Archie McBride was meant to be absent from the game, nursing a recent rib injury. However, just minutes before the game, he showed up to watch with his daughter. “He saw what was happening and he looked at me and said should I grab my kit from the

car,” said Dodgson. “He then turned to his daughter and explained that he’s going to have to play.” Sumner now had their twoman bench restored and were hopeful of that growing with their division 2 team rushing to Edgar MacIntosh Park fresh from a five-point loss at Lincoln University. The team that ran onto the field looked absent in the first half as Marist Albion dominated the early exchanges to pile on 26 unanswered points. “We needed some rice bubbles,

there was no snap, crackle and pop,” said Dodgson. Kibirige put Sumner on the board as the half-time whistle sounded when he crashed over the line to reduce the gap to 19 at the break. “A few coarse words were had at half-time,” said Dodgson. Marist Albion were reduced to 14 men early in the second-half. Sumner made the most of the numbers and Kibirige combined with his midfield partner Will Sakura to score his second try. After being restored to their full complement, Marist

Albional almost immediately lost a second player to the sin-bin when lock Paul Garner was sent packing by referee James Munro. This one again created extra space for Sumner and Kibirige looked to be enjoying his makeshift role in the midfield by completing his hat-trick in emphatic fashion. After receiving the ball on his own 22m line, he shrugged off half the Marist Albion team in an 80m runaway try. The comeback was completed with just two minutes left on the clock.

A free-kick was awarded to Sumner from a 5m scrum and quick-thinking No 8 Martene Downes took the tap and caught the Marist Albion defence napping to score 10m to the left of the posts and even the score. It was then down to first-five Nik Cumming who took his points tally for the season to 114 as he calmly slotted the winning kick. The game was the opening match in section two of the metro competition. Sumner travel to Shirley at the weekend.

Bays in fight for title

CONTENDERS: Michael Forshaw turns with the ball in Western’s half during Bays 4-1 on Saturday.

FERRYMEAD BAYS continued their race for the Mainland Premier League with a 4-1 win over Western AFC on Saturday.

rymead Park, recording all four of their goals in the opening half hour. Seb Schacht opened the scoring after eight minutes. Shawn O’Brien, who had transferred from Coastal midweek, then doubled the lead with Geoff MacIntyre adding a third minutes later. Andreas Wilson completed the scoring for Bays with just

his second ever Mainland Premier League goal, courtesy of the penalty spot. Western’s lone goal came early in the second half when Mo Khalifa found the back of the net. Bays and Western will meet at Ferrymead Park again on Saturday, this time in the English Cup knockout competition. •More sport, page 20

Theatre/Arts Masked actor grew up in Sumner Tickets on sale NOW!

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding USING FACIAL expressions to express a story is normally an actor’s lifeline for executing a great stage performance. But not for Andrew Ford, 34, who has delved into mastering the art of deception and disguise in a show featuring predominantly masked characters. Auckland-based Ford, who grew up in Sumner, will set foot on the Isaac Theatre Royal stage as a Andrew bombastic villain Ford in a comedy about love, death and preserves. He said the show has been a challenge because he has had to emphases his body movements and voice, rather than rely on the simplicity of facial expressions. “It is great because it gives you permission to give really big, larger than life performances, which I enjoy doing,” the former Hagley Theatre Company student said. As part of Indian Ink Theatre Company’s 20th anniversary national tour, Ford has been cast as George Reaper in the company’s award-winning play, The Pickle

King. He describes his character as over-the-top, flamboyant and in love with the sound of his own voice. Ford has had a colourful career since he graduated from Auckland’s Unitec in 2008. Five times Ford has performed in Christchurch’s Anthony Harper Summer Theatre show

and was recently in this year’s performance of Robin Hood. Shortland St fans may have seen Ford make a guest appearance on the soap as an “insensitive doctor”. He said things happen very quickly behind the scenes and actors need to be at the top of their game.

Saturday 8 – Saturday 22 July 2017

Tickets on sale NOW!

Although a comedy, The Pickle King tells the story of a blind receptionist working at a crumbling hotel in Wellington who believes she is cursed as everyone she loves dies. In spite of the curse, she falls in love with a another hotel employee and at the same time a mysterious new guest (Ford)

checks into the hotel who she believes to be the Grim Reaper. “For me, the main message about the show, and it may be corny, is about having the courage to love someone . . . she feels cursed but still falls in love,” Ford said. As part of Indian Ink’s anniversary celebrations, the original performance of The Pickle King about 15 years ago has been changed from a heterosexual to a same sex love story. Ford said very little of the script needed to be adapted and it was nice to see audiences were accepting of the gender change in the show. The show also touches on immigration and the difficulty many face when they move to a new country and find their qualifications mean nothing. •The Pickle King will run at the Isaac Theatre Royal from today until Saturday.

Retaining Wall When considering a retaining wall, Solveig Construction can advise the best solution based on the structural requirements and aesthetic needs. The main function of retaining wall systems is to create a strong wall structure to contain and stabilise soil and rock behind the wall system to stop erosion on steep and sloped landscapes. The other advantage is for their decorative appeal that will transform any landscape setting to look attractive and create visual interest. Retaining walls can be constructed from various building materials such as, concrete blocks, natural stone blocks, bricks, poured in concrete and timber. Before choosing the look of the wall you want on your property, you must seek professional advice. With our expertise and knowledge, Solveig Construction can suggest the best type of wall design and the most suitable material appropriate to your needs. Contact Dougall Patchett to discuss options for your retaining wall design. Phone 027 431 5289. Parklands Drive – Concrete block and timber walls with steps As the house is at the bottom of a sloping section, the homeowner required clear access around the front of the home. The solution is a concrete block retaining wall topped by a landscaped terrace edged with a small timber wall. Steps allow access from the lawn to the front entry.
