AN ONLINE petition calling for better public access to the Diamond Harbour ferry terminal has attracted 170 signatures in one week. Set up by the Diamond Harbour Residents Association, the petition calls on the city council and Environment Canterbury to “ensure that within 100m of the Diamond Harbour ferry terminal, there is adequate bus parking on the Lyttelton wharf and that there is a drop-off/pick-up zone for private vehicles.” It follows a decision by the Lyttelton Port Company to reduce bus parking spaces from three to one and not provide a pick-up/drop-off zone. The Banks Peninsula Community Board is to have an urgent meeting with the LPC, ECan and the city council on Monday, to discuss the changes. •Turn to page 8

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE PRESSURE continues to build on the authorities over public access to the Diamond Harbour ferry terminal in Lyttelton. We report on page 1 today an online petition over the issue has attracted 170 signatures in a week. The Diamond Harbour Residents Association isn’t overly chuffed with what’s happening on the Lyttelton side and are showing they are willing to fight. The petition is targeted at the city council and Environment Canterbury as a way of circumnavigating some of the port company’s plans. What the residents’ association now needs is for the community board to stand alongside them and ensure the changes to the terminal are passenger friendly. As I said previously, the ferry terminal at Lyttelton is a shocker, and well overdue for a revamp. Critical to that revamp is making it passenger-friendly. – Barry Clarke

Maori village goes to the dogs „„ By Bridget Rutherford and Sarla Donovan THE FERRYMEAD site that was once home to the failed Christchurch Maori Village could be turned into a dog park. City councillor Yani Johanson and the Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board have asked city council staff to prepare a report on whether the site could be used as a dog exercise area. The village was set up by Tamaki Heritage Yani Johanson Experiences, owned by brothers Doug and Mike Tamaki, in 2007 but closed after the earthquakes because of financial issues. Several larger buildings at the park were dismantled and transported back to the company’s Rotorua base after its closure in 2012, while huts and fencing from the replica Pa were sold to the Ko Tane Living Maori Village at Christchurch’s Willowbank Wildlife Park. The former landfill was reme-

In Brief MOUNTAIN BIKER INJURED An injured mountain biker was helicoptered out of Urumau Reserve above Lyttelton at about 3pm on Saturday. Lyttelton Fire Brigade chief fire officer Mark Buckley said they had to extract the biker by air as the location made it difficult to transport her by stretcher. She had “banged herself up pretty badly,” Mr Buckley said, and was flown directly to Christchurch Hospital for treatment. Her injuries were not understood to be life-threatening. CAR PARK SKATEBOARDING Skateboarders using the new Sumner Centre car park may be warned off with signs prohibiting the activity. A nearby motel owner raised concerns recently with the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board about the affect skateboarding in the car park was having on his business. The board has asked city council staff for advice on how to restrict skateboarding activity in the car park, which may include signs banning it.

PLAN: A report on whether the former Maori village site in Ferrymead could be turned into a dog park is expected before Christmas. (Above) The Victoria Park dog park.

diated by the city council as part of its agreement with Tamaki Heritage Experiences. In 2014, the city council sought registrations of interest but failed to attract anyone. Cr Johanson said the site would be suited to a dog park. “There is a shortage of dog exercise areas in the bay harbour area. You’ve got the beaches but there’ve been restrictions put on

around what time of year (you can take dogs) and there’s often stock grazing up at John Britten Reserve.” There were dedicated dog exercise spaces in other parts of the city, including The Groynes, Victoria Park and Halswell Quarry. “This area and the central city are the two that stand out as not having a dedicated dog park.”

Christchurch has experienced growth in dog numbers over recent years. In 2014, there was one dog for every 10 humans in the city. Cr Johanson said he expected city council staff to report back on the idea before Christmas.

ORTON BRADLEY CAFE Visitors to the revamped Orton Bradley Cafe will have to bring a reusable cup if they want a takeaway coffee. The cafe opens on Saturday and the new management’s focus on sustainability includes a ban on non-recyclable takeaway cups.

RSA exploring options for clubrooms „„ By Sarla Donovan THE Sumner-Redcliffs RSA has been caught in no-man’s land since the February 22, 2011, earthquake destroyed its Wakefield Ave clubrooms. Builder Ian Caldwell, 47, died when boulders from a cliff face crashed onto the RSA and a building site next door. The building was red-stickered and subsequently demolished in 2014. Since then, the club has been without a headquarters and there are no current plans to rebuild. “We can’t,” president Bill Joines told the Bay Harbour News. “We don’t have any land.” Though the club has been looking at different options, there’s nothing concrete on the horizon. “We’re sounding out different places at the moment. We’ve had an insurance payout, but I don’t know if it will go to the extent of rebuilding.” Sumner-Redcliffs RSA was started in 1932, as a sub-branch of the Christchurch RSA. Early activities in the first year involved smoko, a social evening attended by the mayor and the club’s first annual dance. However, the new club looked after more than just social events. With high unemployment at that time, it was called upon to

assist returned servicemen of the district experiencing financial distress. In 1944 it bought a couple of army huts and relocated them

to a section at 34 Wakefield Ave, where the club would remain for the next 70 years. Numbers at the club have fallen dramatically since the

earthquakes, from 200-300 down to 100. With no base, the regulars now meet at Sumner’s Village Inn on Thursdays at 5pm. Kitty Fenton is one of them – she says there’s usually about a dozen people there. “We meet and have a bit of a yarn, a catch up and a drink. Then at 6pm, the president says the Ode of Remembrance, ‘Lest We Forget.’” She says after six years, she’s got used to not having a building. Mr Joines, who served in the SAS from 1955-58, said one of the options they would consider was joining another local club, similar to what the New Brighton RSA had done. It’s now linked with the New Brighton Bowling Club with

which it shares a room, becoming the New Brighton Bowling Club and RSA. Sumner Bowling Club secretary Colin Thompson said the idea had been brought up informally in the past, but no formal approach had been made by the Sumner RSA. Mr Thompson wouldn’t comment on whether the club would be open to the idea, saying it would be up to the committee. The bowling club’s Richmond Hill Rd clubrooms are being rebuilt next year, with work expected to start in April. Meanwhile, two 1947 bronze plaques commemorating the Anzacs – placed on stone columns at the entrance to the former RSA clubrooms – are to be brought out of storage and the columns rebuilt. The city council is working with stonemasons on the project and will look at reusing some of the original stone, which was salvaged and stockpiled in Lyttelton. Rawi Joines said she was looking forward to the columns being completed before next year’s Anzac day commemorations. •Footage of the RSA building during the February 22, 2011 earthquake: https://youtu. be/qt0iIHXFnR0

Working group to look at future of Scott Park „„ By Sarla Donovan A WORKING group looking at the layout and future development of Scott Park in Mt Pleasant will meet next Wednesday. The group was set up after Coastal Pathway Group chairman Scott Babington last month raised concerns about public access to the Scott Park foreshore near the Ferrymead Bridge. Mr Babington said the meeting next week would be a chance to start developing an overall masterplan for park users. “We want to know what it’s going to look like in 10 years time.” The working group will include Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board chairwoman Sally Buck and board members Tim Lindley and Darrell Latham. The Coastal Pathway Trust, Mt Pleasant Residents Association, Windsport Association, Christchurch Yacht Club and the Mt Pleasant Scouts have also been invited. Mr Babington last month told the board fenced-off planting between the Coastal Pathway and the Mt Pleasant Yacht club’s new boatshed was making water

IMPOSING: Mt Pleasant Yacht Club’s new boat shed is substantially larger than its predecessor.

access difficult for the public. The boatshed was built this year to replace one damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes. With a footprint of 486m2 and maximum height of 7.3m, it is substantially larger than the building it replaced, which was 275m2 and approximately 4m high. A condition of the build, which wasn’t publicly notified, required the club to plant and maintain totara trees between the building and the coastal pathway. Dr Latham said he wanted to get a better overview of the issues relating to Scott Park. “I’m particularly interested in the access to the public boat ramp and jetty below the Fer-

rymead Bridge footpath and to the legal paper road that goes right along the foreshore in front of the shed and clubhouse.” He said it was curious that the Coastal Pathway ran along the edge of Main Rd rather than along the foreshore. Mr Babington said the group had wanted the Coastal Pathway to go beside the water but were put off during the design development stage. “We were very keen to go along the foreshore but one of the city council employees spoke very strongly . . . that yachting sports needed priority.” The meeting would provide the opportunity to “seek clarification on a range of issues,” Mr Babington said.

FAMILY TIES: Ninety yearold Ed Cotter with Mandu the cat, who’s been adopted by one of his daughters, Jacqui Cotter.

New home for Mandu „„ By Sarla Donovan GINGER CAT Mandu has a new home. Mandu featured in the Bay Harbour News last month after he made friends with residents of Edith Cavell Lifecare in Sumner. A resident, Denise Brown, wanted to make sure he had a home, so she put out the call for the owner to get in touch. But no-one came forward to claim the ginger tom, so he’s now been adopted by the daughter of 90-year-old Ed Cotter, who was one of his favourite residents at the rest home (hence the name, short for Kathmandu.) Mr Cotter was part of the first

New Zealand expedition to the Himalayas in 1951, along with George Lowe, Earle Riddiford and Ed Hillary. Ms Brown said she very pleased Mandu had found a stable home with Jacqui Cotter, who lives in Brighton. “He went off quite happily on Saturday; he’s already been micro-chipped and the vet said he was two-years-old and a lovely cat.” Although some residents were upset to see him go, “one of the cooks cried,” Ms Brown said people were pleased he’d found a place to call home. One where Mr Cotter can go still go and visit.

A Column of Fire By Ken Follett

The saga that has enthralled the millions of readers of The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End now continues with Ken Follett’s magnificent, gripping A Column of Fire. Christmas 1558, and young Ned Willard returns home to Kingsbridge to find his world has changed. The ancient stones...Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn by religious hatred. Europe is in turmoil as high principles clash bloodily with friendship, loyalty and love, and Ned soon finds himself on the opposite side from the girl he longs to marry, Margery Fitzgerald. Then Elizabeth Tudor becomes queen and all of Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country’s first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions and invasion plans. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone else - no matter the cost.

kIDS bOOkS & AcTIvITIES The Thunderbolt Pony By Stacy Gregg

A dramatic and emotional story about one girl’s determination to stand by her beloved animals – and her refusal to give up, even in the face of impossible odds. When a devastating earthquake hits Evie’s hometown of Parnassus on New Zealand’s South Island, she and the rest of the town are forced to evacuate. Evie’s injured mum is one of the first to be rescued by helicopter and Evie will be next. But when she realises that she will be forced to leave her beloved pony, Gus, her dog, Jock, and her cat Moxy behind, she is determined to find another way. Before the rescue helicopter returns, Evie flees with Gus, Jock and Moxy in a race against time across difficult terrain to reach the port of Kaikoura, where she has heard that people will be evacuated by ship in three days’ time. Surely there will be space for her, Gus, Jock and Moxy there? But the journey is harder than Evie could ever have imagined, and with aftershocks constantly shaking, Evie will have to draw on all her bravery, strength, and resilience to bring her and her animals to safety ... and hope that they reach the boat in time.

The Wonderling

By Mira Bartok

In this extraordinary debut novel with its deft nod to Dickensian heroes and rogues, Mira Bartók tells the story of Arthur, a shy, fox-like foundling with only one ear and a desperate desire to belong, as he seeks his destiny. Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer. Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared, fox-like eleven-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck - it is the only home he has ever known. But unexpected courage leads him to acquire the loyalty of a young bird groundling named Trinket, who gives the Home’s loneliest inhabitant two incredible gifts: a real name - Arthur, like the good king in the old stories - and a best friend. Using Trinket’s ingenious invention, the pair escape over the wall and embark on an adventure that will take them out into the wider world and ultimately down the path of sweet Arthur’s true destiny.

Previous attempts at having the gullies reserved have been rejected by the city council.

Terminal plan met with petition

•From page 1 Bay Harbour News reported last week the community board had asked for the meeting after the newspaper revealed two weeks ago the LPC’s decision to reduce bus parking spaces to one and not provide a pick-up/drop-off zone. Diamond Harbour Residents Association chairman Richard Suggate told a board meeting last week that the LPC’s refusal to provide a drop-off zone would force the infirm, disabled or with heavy parcels, to walk from Norwich Quay. He said the ferry was the only link for Diamond Harbour residents if there were road closures and access should be suitable for people with disabilities, the elderly and very young, “including not having to use steps or walk long distances.” Port company chief executive Peter Davie said LPC staff met with the Banks Peninsula Community Board on July 31. “At that meeting staff showed board members the plans for the Diamond Harbour ferry upgrade and changed access for the buses.  Our plans have not changed since presenting them to the Community Board in July.  “At the July meeting we explained to the community board that there will be a reduction in space for the buses to park.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ will provide one space for a bus to safely park and turn around. We are working with Environment Canterbury to ensure this has minimum impact on current services. This will not affect ferry users at all. “An upgrade of the existing Diamond Harbour Ferry facilities will take place at the same time as the LPC staff car park is being built adjacent to Waterfront House,  the new LPC operations building. The work should be completed before Christmas. “After the upgrade, the existing ferry facilities will be significantly better in terms of amenity and safety.  The upgrade also includes direct stair access onto the Oxford St overbridge, which people can use to get to the ferry.

We are delighted to provide this as we know the community has been keen on stair access for some time. “Currently people cannot drive to the ferry and we have installed a sign on the bridge to remind people that the bridge is for port traffic and buses only. We are very happy to facilitate access for people who need to drop goods off or who are physically impaired. “We will work with Black Cat Cruises to enable people to have access. If there are particular items that require to be around 50m closer to the ferry terminal than they can achieve via the stairs, then we will accommodate them through the port,’’ Mr Davie said. •Soapbox, page 12

LEAKS IN the Sumner community pool have been fixed ahead of the November opening – but the pool committee is now nearly $7000 in the red. An application to the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board’s discretionary fund to help it cover the cost was declined, as the repairs are considered capital works and don’t fit the fund’s criteria. The pool committee is now looking for other funding sources to help cover the $6688 cost. Most of the running costs for the community-owned and man-

aged pool come from key rental, with about 360 keys available for local families to rent at $150 a season. Committee member Liz Beaglehole said the leaks had to be fixed as they were pushing up the operational costs of heating and chlorinating water. She was confident of finding other avenues of funding. The pool, which is used by local school and community groups and families, is run by a committee of volunteers. It opens for the summer season on November 11 at 7am.

Dimaond Harbour pupils have no trouble with Aladdin show SCHOOLS THE DIAMOND Harbour School production, Aladdin Trouble, wowed the crowd at the Diamond Harbour community hall. The pantomime-style musical was filled with puns, corny dad jokes and, of course, a lot of singing. Every pupil was involved from the leading roles by year 7s and 8s to dance routines and small acting roles for those in years 0-6. The leading roles were performed by Flora Dean as Scherazarde, Alex Cameron as the Sultan, Olive Tuipulotu as the Genie, with the baddie, Abanazar, played by Adam Anderson, and eventual love birds, Aladdin and Jasmine, were played by Tane Payne and Anna Clinch. The show wouldn’t have been complete without a pantomime dame – Widow Twankey was played by the extremely funny Darcy McMillan. Deputy principal Fiona Rice thanked everyone who helped behind the scenes with props and costume-making. “It really wouldn’t work without that

support.” Year 7 pupil Poppy Kirkwood played one of the Gems who danced in Alladin’s cave of wonders. She said being involved in Aladdin Trouble was tough

but rewarding. “I loved the production this year but it was hard work to keep up with school work and choreograph dances, plus learn my lines. But overall it was really fun.”

The 52nd annual Lyttelton /Titahi Bay trip was another successful event. This year the Lyttelton U13’s travelled to Titahi Bay/Norths to play for the Challenge Shield and then hosted the Titahi Bay/Norths team two weeks later. Although the Lyttelton team were beaten in both games, the games were played in good spirit with Lyttelton playing adventurous rugby right to the end, although out played by a better team.

Diamond Harbour resident and Banks Peninsula Community Board Mt Herbert representative, Felix Dawson, is unhappy with proposed changes to the ferry terminal Lyttelton Port Company is currently in the process of upgrading the Diamond Harbour ferry terminal services. This includes a re-configured waiting area, replacement of the previously removed pedestrian bridge and reduction of the bus parking area. The reduced bus area will exclude the opportunity for car drop-offs on the wharf, and possibly remove the bus pick-up service, relocating it to Norwich Quay. So the ferry upgrade involves a reduction in service. Black Cat has recently advised the Banks Peninsula Community Board that the ferry service provides more than 100,000 passenger trips annually. This is made up of residents and visitors. For Diamond Harbour residents, the alternative transport option is a 35min winding drive. A recent slip off the side of the road in Church Bay has reduced the road to one lane. Any more slippage and the road is gone, with the only alternative a back road – little more than a badly paved stock route currently littered with sink holes, arising it would seem from a poorly laid sewer. If these roads become unusable – which is possible – the ferry becomes the only access to Diamond Harbour. The ferry service matters. LPC is currently proposing to reduce the service to “make better utilisation of the land”. That is, to provide car parks for its

staff who are being shifted into their new offices about 400m away. So is the best utilisation car parking for about 100 people or public transport for 100,000? What is it with LPC? When it applied for a 40ha land reclamation consent, it argued that among other benefits, it would enable logs to be shifted from in front of Norwich Quay. It has reclaimed about 10ha which is now covered in newly-imported parked cars. LPC recently advised the board that moving the logs is 10 years away. On day one of the harbour dredging consent, the first question to LPC from the commissioner, fresh from reading about the new cruise ship berth to be built, was: Is the dredging required for the cruise ships? The LPC representative smoothly advised the panel that the answer was no, as the cruise ships have a shallow draft. We are now told that the appeal on the granting of the dredging consent will delay the cruise ship berth. Sorry local businesses. Now we have a multi-million dollar must-have office build without adequate parking, and for the sake of one bus park the poor old commuters will have to walk. Come on LPC – you guys are paid the big bucks. Do the job, do the right thing. Start talking to the users. Retain the current ferry service.

Inspired by the author’s own family experience. The Brennans - parents, Finn and Bridget, and their sons, Jarrah and Toby - have made a sea change, from chilly Hobart to subtropical Murwillumbah. Feeling like foreigners in this land of sun and surf, they’re still adjusting to work, school, and life in a sprawling purple weatherboard, when one morning, tragedy strikes. In the devastating aftermath, the questions fly. What really happened? And who’s to blame? Determined to protect his family, Finn finds himself under the police and media spotlight. Guilty and enraged, Bridget spends nights hunting answers in the last place imaginable. Jarrah - his innocence lost - faces a sudden and frightening adulthood where nothing is certain. Sixty Seconds is a haunting, redemptive story about forgiveness and hope. ‘A beautiful work. One of the most moving and artistically satisfying endings I’ve read in a long while’ Susan Johnson, Courier Mail ‘An unflinching but tender exploration of what happens when the worst happens, this achingly beautiful novel broke my heart. And then put it back together’ Wendy James, author ‘Powerful and captivating - a novel you will not forget’ Eliza Henry-Jones, author.

What does this button do? by Bruce Dickinson

The first print run of the UK hardback edition will have black sprayed edges. In order to guarantee your copy, pre-order before the 19th October. ‘I was spotty, wore an anorak, had biro-engraved flared blue jeans with “purple” and “Sabbath” written on the thighs, and rode an ear-splittingly uncool moped. Oh yes, and I wanted to be a drummer…’ Bruce Dickinson – Iron Maiden’s legendary front man – is one of the world’s most iconic singers and songwriters. But there are many strings to Bruce’s bow, of which larger-than-life lead vocalist is just one. He is also an airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, motivational speaker, beer brewer, novelist, radio presenter, film scriptwriter and an international fencer: truly one of the most unique and interesting men in the world. In What Does this Button Do? Bruce contemplates the rollercoaster of life. He recounts – in his uniquely anarchic voice – the explosive exploits of his eccentric British childhood, the meteoric rise of Maiden, summoning the powers of darkness, the philosophy of fencing, brutishly beautiful Boeings and firmly dismissing cancer like an uninvited guest. Bold, honest, intelligent and funny, this long-awaited memoir captures the life, heart and mind of a true rock icon, and is guaranteed to inspire curious souls and hard-core fans alike.

WIN THIS BOOK We have one copy of Sixty Seconds to give away, courtesy of Take Note Ferrymead.

REAL ESTATE Your own slice of heaven on Scarborough 50 Scarborough Road, Sumner Auction: Thursday, 19 October 2017 Unless Sold Prior 2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 toilet | 1 living room | 1 office/study | 1 car-garage | Listing #FM5250

Every second of every day reveals the ever changing wonder below this classic Scarborough home. Set in a private pocket on the mid slopes of Scarborough Hill, time seems to slow as you are forced to appreciate your surroundings and the broad expanse beyond, with views spanning from Sumner township and esplanade right across the city to the mountains and across Pegasus Bay. The house consists of two bedrooms on the main level, with another bedroom below, equipped with its own shower. The main bedroom has incredible views out over Sumner, with a sliding door opening out to the huge balcony. Part of the balcony is covered, enabling outdoor living and a connection to the views even on a rainy day. This connection to the outdoors and the view is maintained in the incredible living room with a 2m x 4m window that showcases the movement and life beyond. A low emission log burner provides all the warmth and ambience you need, with another large window connecting to the garden and trees outside. The modern kitchen, which also connects to the balcony and views is a pleasure to be in, with ample storage and bench space... making work feel more like relaxation. Below the house an established and very thoughtfully planned garden sprawls on numerous levels with interconnecting paths, and secret spots to relax in. A private patio area is ideal for entertaining or enjoying the late afternoon sun above the Alps. The

property has had all retaining walls and stone walls replaced, including some paths and shares a double garage with on-street drive in access, as well as another large storage a similar size below this, meaning that your storage worries are more than covered. Opportunities like this are few and far between to grab your very own slice of heaven, and with further potential to reconfigure or extend, you’ll soon realise the true possibilities. Open Homes: Saturdays and Sundays 12:00pm - 12:45pm. Auction Thursday 19 October 2:00pm at Harcourts House, 98 Moorhouse Ave, ChCh. See you at the Open Homes or to arrange a private viewing of this property call Joy Butel or Alistair Hazeldine of Harcourts Grenadier Ferrymead (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 384 7950 or Joy mob: 021 353 280 or Alistair mob: 027 572 1555
