Sumner Rd reopening delayed Repair work won’t be finished until 2019 „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE REOPENING of Sumner Rd has been pushed back by more than a year because the work is more complex than first thought. Bay Harbour News has obtained a memo addressed to elected members and city council staff from city services general manager David Adamson. It said work to reopen the road between Evans Pass Rd and Lyttelton would not be finished until early to mid2019. Originally, the New Zealand Peter Davie Transport Agency and city council project being done by McConnell Dowell, was expected to reopen early next year. “We know many people may be frustrated with the later opening date, but this project is about making an important roading link safe, resilient and fit for purpose,” Mr Adamson said in the memo. He said much of the

ALL YOU history buffs can watch the Timeball tower came back to life from wherever you are. Heritage New Zealand and Hawkins Construction have put in a time lapse camera that captures the progress of the build every 10min from 6.30am to 5.30pm (see page 3). The tower rebuild will be finished in April but Nick Chin of Heritage NZ says it will become noticeable in the skyline in the next couple of weeks. Not such good news though with the opening of Sumner Rd delayed for at least another year (see page 1). Says the city council: “We know many people may be frustrated with the later opening date, but this project is about making an important roading link safe, resilient and fit for purpose.” Hard to argue with that. – Barry Clarke

News Camera captures Timeball repairs YOU DON’T need to leave the comfort of your living room to watch the rebuild of Lyttelton’s iconic Timeball Station. Heritage New Zealand and Hawkins Construction are sharing costs for a time lapse camera that captures progress of the build every 10min from 6.30am to 5.30pm. “We encourage people to view the time lapse camera and watch the rebuild in real time. The Nick Chin tower rebuild should begin to become quite noticeable on Lyttelton’s skyline in the next few weeks,” Heritage New Zealand general manager Nick Chin said. He said it will be a welcome reminder for locals of the familiar landmark that stood at the site since 1876 but has been missing since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The Timeball Station will be finished by the end of April. An internal concrete shell which will house the automated timeball mechanism

TOILETS FIXED The toilets at Allandale Domain are operating again and the drinking fountain is set to be reconnected. The toilet block and fountain had been closed on and off because of issues with water supply from a shallow well and there was found to be minor contamination. The water to the drinking fountain will be treated with a new UV sterilisation system, which is being installed in the Allandale Hall. REPAIR CAFE Project Lyttelton is running a second round of its repair cafe. On November 5 you can take your sewing, darning, furniture, IT or any small appliances to the Lyttelton Recreation Centre where expert volunteers will fix them. REDCLIFFS PARKING It will soon be easier to park outside Redcliffs shops. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board is expected to approve 120min parking restrictions at its meeting tonight after a business owner raised concerns that customers were experiencing difficulties parking nearby. City council staff investigated and found the three spaces outside the shops were consistently occupied by the same vehicles for most of the day.

PROGRESS: The rebuild of the Timeball tower can be watched online with photos updated every 10 minutes. (Right) – The damaged tower after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. ​ is currently being constructed on site. The stone masonry work will take place once it is completed, using as much of the original heritage fabric as possible from the station following its

Earthquake Engineering. She said she wanted to inspire scientists and engineers to fight to make buildings safer and earthquake standards stricter. Many were doing great technical work around earthquake safety, but failing to communicate that to the public and to politicians, she said. “It’s all well and good to make spectacular science, but if you can’t communicate it, what’s the point,” she said. “Science is only half the job. It’s about taking that and using it to make a change in our little

corner of the world, and communicating it in a way that makes Parliament sit up and listen,” she said. She said many scientists shied away from engaging in politics, but she believed it was essential. “If the ultimate goal is a safer society, there’s a lot of politics in that,” she said. “A lot of science and engineering types wrinkle their noses at politics and say ‘oh, it’s so odious’. I say ‘yes, it’s all a game, and everyone lies, and there’s a lot of hypocrisy in it, that’s true. But you still have to play the game’.”

Dr Brower said the journal’s acceptance and revision process took more than a year and it would be a huge honour to finally see it in print. Telling her story and proving that “the little guy can make a change” had been very satisfying, she said. Although she still kept an eye on earthquake strengthening legislation, her main focus had returned to the environmental research she was focused on before the earthquakes, she said. Most of her current work was around things like management of freshwater and conservation land in Canterbury, she said. “If something has the potential to make the world a better place, I think it’s my job to share it,” she said. •Dr Brower’s story in her own words can be found online at www.star.kiwi where the full pre-print text of her paper has been published.

Yacht club on board over park „„ By Julia Evans THE MT Pleasant Yacht Club is happy to work with concerned parties to make Scott Park better for everyone. A new working group met last Wednesday to discuss issues of water and park access, safety and general landscaping. And yacht club immediate past commodore Tim Prickett said following the meeting, everyone was on the same page. “Essentially there were three thrusts to the meeting . . . accessibility of park, water and Darrell beautification,” he Latham said. Those at the meeting included Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board chairwoman Sally Buck and members Darrell Latham, Tim Lindley and Jake McLellan, as well as Mt Pleasant Residents’ Association co-ordinator Jules Lee, Paul Roperfee from the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group, Dr Prickett and Duncan Cartwright commodore and rear commodore of the Mt Pleasant Yacht Club, Russell Mathieson, Allan Taylor from Canterbury Wind Sports

PARK: Accessibility and beautification at Scott Park were up for discussion by the working party at its meeting last week. and Eric Banks from the city council. Dr Prickett said a majority of the issues could be dealt with simply by adding more signage. “Accessibility is largely to do with perception rather than reality, it just needs to be better signed,” he said. Although he did agree that the park was “pretty ugly.” Dr Prickett said there was currently a lack of city council funding available but in the next financial year more would become free. “But the sentiment was that we’re all going in the same direction,” he said. The working party was triggered after Coastal Pathway


Group chairman Scott Babington raised concerns about public access to the foreshore near the Ferrymead Bridge. As it stands there is no public access around the south side of the yacht club’s new boat shed as it is currently fenced off, he said. But Mr Babington could not attending the meeting as he is overseas. Dr Latham agreed and said overall the meeting had a positive tone. “From my perspective everybody understood the issues. Yes, there are concerns that we need to reach agreement on. However, we are closer together than apart on the matters of access

and landscaping raised during discussion,” Dr Latham said. He said the park is still in the early stages of development. “Going forward we have the opportunity to make Scott Park a wonderful area of recreation for water sport users and as a gateway experience for coastal pathway walkers or families wishing enjoy a picnic in the park near the water’s edge.” The community board is looking to develop a 10-year master plan for the park’s future. And Mr Banks is going back to the city council to discuss the landscaping problems with an urban planner to engage landscape architect to work with the Scott Park working party.

Sumner Rd reopening delayed

•From page 1 Mr Adamson said in the memo the bluffs from Evans Pass to Battery Point had been cleared and work had started on creating rockfall protection features, including a catch-bench above the road to stop falling rock. Stage two will consist of repairing damaged retaining walls and reinstating the road itself. The city council had originally planned on putting stage two out for tender, but Mr Adamson said to reduce the reopening time frame, and cost, it had awarded the contract to McConnell Dowell. “Having the same head contractor for both stages means that some of the first and second stage work can be done at the same time, therefore avoiding having to push the open date out further still. It also means the work can be done for less cost than having a new contractor come into the work for the later stage,” Mr Adamson wrote. The project is part of the $78 million Sumner Lyttelton Corridor Programme, which is made up of four projects. The others are at Wakefield Ave, Moa Bone Point and Shag Rock Reserve.

Caves were once party central THE SOUND of music from concerts, picnics and parties rang through Taylors Mistake at the turn of the century when caves were turned into mansions. Janet Abbott became fascinated by the history of the area and the cave mansions that were once tucked between Boulder Bay and Taylors Mistake. She has curated an exhibition of historic photographs of 18 cave baches and written a booklet about their history based on interviews Janet Abbott with people who once attended the parties in this unique community. “Not too many people know the full history of the area. We’ve uncovered quite a bit of new information,” Ms Abbott said. Friends of the owners would go to concert parties at the Theatre Royal, catch the last tram to Sumner and then walk over the hill in the dark to have a “hi de ho” at the bach, Ms Abbott said. The Lost Cave Baches exhibition will be held during Beca Heritage Week until October 23 at the Matuku Takotako Sumner Centre.

HISTORIC: The Lost Cave Baches exhibition will be held during Beca Heritage Week until October 23 at the Matuku Takotako Sumner Centre, Ms Abbott’s booklet will be available for purchase.

“My fascination with these cave baches stems from memories of being rowed around the coast in the dingy by my mother from our bach in Boulder Bay.”

She said the baches were part of a very different way of life at that time. Many of them were just basic huts where fishermen could spend the night while catching

crayfish or fishing on the morning tide. “The abundant fishing and the hillsides heaving with rabbits provided food during the depression days. Families filled the baches. Children grew up fishing, boating and roaming the cliffs and caves.” However, three of them were grand Edwardian Cave baches, including the Pilgrim’s Rest, which was built by Alfred Os-

born (known as the Pilgrim, who built the original Pilgrim’s Way track), The Hermitage and Te Nui Ana. The baches were often made from timber from ships passing through the area. Before containers, ships secured their cargo with planks of wood, and once clear of the harbour they would throw this wood overboard creating “dunnage” that washed up along the coast. Concrete foundations remain from a few of the baches. The Pilgrim’s Rest had a camera obscura and the owner hosted picnic parties attended by women who would clamber down the rough track wearing ankle-length Edwardian dresses. The Hermitage was built in 1906 from timber salvaged from Fuller’s Old Theatre and the Main Exhibition building from the New Zealand International Exhibition which was held in Christchurch from 1906 to 1907. There was a bunk room for women and the cave was lit with kerosene lamps. Te Nui Ana, built in 1903, had three rooms, including a women’s bedroom, a men’s bunkroom and a staircase. The décor featured a chandelier and a grand piano.

At the heart of our community Buyers Love a Bargain Buyers are still motivated by a bargain! Not much has changed with that over the years. That’s why you will often see multiple bidders or multiple offers on properties that are being sold”as is, where is” or Estate Realisations or Mortgagee sales. Buyers are motivated to act quickly on these properties in the belief they make pick up a bargain. Why? Because in most cases they understand that the vendor is a “genuine seller” and is not just testing the market. Don’t get me wrong, buyers still know a good house when they see one and it’s not always about the money. It can also be about buying a property that best suits their needs. However, if we think this through a bit further, it seems to me that if you are thinking of selling it makes sense to advertise your property in a way that buyers believe you are a genuine seller and that you have realistic expectations.

Told with the same combative, no-holds-barred attitude as her game, it’s a story of crazy luck, mistakes, rivalries, sacrifice, survival and, above all, the constant, unwavering determination to win.

News Playground makeover planned SCARBOROUGH PARK will get a makeover. Play equipment at the park is nearing the end of its life so a project team from the city council has been gathering ideas from the community about options for replacing it. A ‘mouse wheel’ is one of the new pieces of play equipment. They have put those ideas together into a draft concept plan, which they now want to get public feedback on. “We’ve already met with a small group of students from Our Lady of the Sea School to check that we are on the right track but now we want to hear what other people think of the plan we’ve come up with,’’ city council acting head of parks Brent Smith said. Included in the plan is provision for a mouse wheel, which would be the first in a city council park, an eagles lair climbing net, a dancing snake rope swing, a climbing tower with slides, a triple swing set, a rocking horse, spring toys, a carousel and nature play items. The concept plan also provides for a new 1.2m wide sealed scooter path, more picnic tables and rubberised safety surfacing to make the playground more accessible.

Spring Fair Sunday Labour Weekend

NEW: A mouse wheel is one of the new pieces of play equipment proposed for the Scarborough Park playground. ​ As part of the proposed playground upgrade one macrocarpa tree, which is in poor condition and a potential health and safety risk, will be removed to make way for play equipment. “One thing we’re particularly keen to get people’s feedback on is the colour theme for the new playground. We’re looking at three options – neutral colours, heritage colours (red, blue and white) or colours that match the nearby Scarborough

paddling pool (green, blue, yellow and red),’’ Mr Smith said. A drop-in session where people can find out more about what is proposed will be held at Scarborough Park between 10am and noon on October 28. If it is raining heavily on that day, the drop-in session will be held on November 4 instead. People can also find more information about the planned playground upgrade and give their feedback through on the

city council website. The consultation period closes on November 13. Once the feedback has been considered and the concept plan finalised, it will be presented to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board for consideration. “We’re hoping to be able to start work on the upgrade in autumn next year and to have all the new play equipment installed by the spring,’’ Mr Smith said.

CRAFT: Traditional greenwood-working tools in action.

Ferrymead park new home to craft group ANCIENT greenwood-working skills meet historic local timber at Rekindle’s new home in the Ferrymead Heritage Park. The park is a natural setting for the traditional craft workshops they are offering.  Rekindle, a Christchurchbased social enterprise, is dedicated to sharing creative skills which have an impact on waste and resourcefulness. It is happy to be settled in at Ferrymead, which is the base for their latest initiative, Resourceful Ōtautahi.  Its programme focuses on encouraging the use of resourceful skills and undervalued local materials – from cabbage tree fronds to

timber that was destined for the woodchipper. “Being able to make what we need from what we have is something we all need to feel confident in,” Rekindle’s founder Juliet Arnott said. She said the workshop is “a place people can go to learn and practice craft skills that are traditional yet still highly relevant today because they make the most of available local resources.” She’s particularly excited to be at Ferrymead Heritage Park as she sees a strong alignment between Rekindle’s aims and the park’s commitment to celebrating local heritage and its social impacts.  Ms Arnott hopes the park will become increasingly vital for local

communities. “There is so much potential in the park and its future, and I hope the workshop programme and other planned activities will give people a new reason to come and spend more time here,” she said. Resourceful Ōtautahi host evening and weekend workshops for the public, where they can learn traditional crafts, such as spoon-carving, basket-weaving, string-making and furnituremaking. This is New Zealand’s only workshop specialised in greenwood-working, and they use unique timber in the form of 110-year-old trees that were PRACTICAL: Greenwood spoon-carving is one of the many dead or dying in Christchurch’s workshops Rekindle is offering. parks.

SOON VISITORS will be able to spend a night under the stars at Quail Island. The Department of Conservation is currently working to “improve the visitor experience” for people going to the island. It includes plans to install a waharoa entrance to welcome those arriving at the public wharf and

upgrade signage on the island. DOC staff are currently turning one of the cottages on the island into a DOC hut, which will be able to be booked as overnight accommodation. Christchurch operations manager Andy Thompson said the caretakers cottage would be turned into a hut, which would provide either nine or 12 beds. The interpretation centre, which was in the

cottage, would be moved to the barracks building. He said the hut building would be ready for use in summer, when people could book a bed. DOC is also considering how it can put a small campground on the grass by the beach. Due to the complete fire ban this would require the building of a couple of small whare kais with a sink and a gas barbecue.

Beauty Bra Specialist for your Community

WALKING: People took their dogs to the Tamaki Heritage site where it is proposed to build a dog park. PHOTOS: YANI JOHANSON ​

Dog day out in Ferrymead EVERY MAN, woman and their dog turned up for the Dog’s Day Out in Ferrymead. The event on Saturday included a tour of the Tamaki Heritage site, a walk through Ferrymead Heritage Village and a ride on the tram. It has been proposed that the area, once home to the failed Christchurch Maori Village, should be turned into a dog park. City councillor Yani Johanson and the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board have asked city council staff to prepare a report on whether the site could be used as a dog exercise area.

BOW WOW: These pooches got a ride on the tram at Ferrymead Heritage Park.

That report is expected to go back to the board before Christmas. 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 have been restrictions put on around what time of year (you can take dogs) and there’s often stock grazing up at John Britten Reserve.”

Halswell woman, Esther Rokk, knows that for many women shopping for bras is next door to a nightmare. “It’s difficult to find the correct size, comfort is sadly lacking, and many stores do not offer a fitting service these days. Once you finally decide on a bra and take it home and wear it for a couple of hours you often find the wires dig in, irritate the tender breast tissue and pinch in all sorts of unlikely places! The bras then lose their supportive qualities very quickly once they are washed and worn,” she says. Esther knows what most women want in a bra. No underwires, no shoulder strap pull, straps that don’t fall off your shoulders, full support from beneath the bust. Esther believes, “You need a bra that’s so comfortable you forget you’re wearing it.” All these features are found in the Beauty Bra, formerly known as the Jeunique Bra. Simply amazing comfort and support. The Beauty Bra is suitable for all figure types, ages and stages of a woman’s life. It comes in over 200 size combinations so it is easy to find the correct fit. The Beauty Bra really does slim the fuller figure and enhances the dainty figure too. There is very minimal flattening of the delicate breast tissue, which can interfere with breast health. Your breast must be lifted and supported into the bra cup, not suspended from the shoulders. You are fully supported from beneath the bust because the Beauty Bra has a cleverly inbuilt ‘shelf ’ which takes the weight off the shoulders and

neck to provide the ideal uplift. “The Beauty Bra has proved popular in Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury, and Otago so we would like to bring the amazing benefits of the bra to Banks Peninsula, Sumner and surrounding areas. The current Beauty Bra consultants are involved in their own districts and can’t be everywhere at once, so Beauty Bra is looking for local women who would like to have a business from home or an addition to an existing business. Ideally these ladies would have had some business experience, have a genuine interest in helping people, have an outgoing, open personality, plus have the determination to succeed.” The successful applicant will be trained in all the skills they need to become a professional, shape wear specialist. Start- up costs are minimal (under $3000.00), with attractive discounts, including extra discounts during the first year of business. You will be assisted with advertising and promotional activity. Esther has over 24 years of business experience for you to take advantage of at any time. Beauty Bra is a family business and are fully committed to helping their specialists succeed in having their own business. You will be rewarded according to how much effort you put into your business and you will be supported all the way. Esther will be interviewing interested ladies from her home in Halswell. She also welcomes those who are wanting a free, no obligation bra fitting.

Plan to preserve Takapūneke „„ By Bridget Rutherford A DRAFT plan has been developed for a sacred Banks Peninsula reserve’s future so it can have its classification upgraded to the same status as the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Takapūneke Reserve sits between Akaroa and the settlement of Ōnuku. It is a site of immense cultural and spiritual significance to Ngāi Tahu and Ōnuku Runanga. In a bid to have the reserve classed as a national reserve, like that of Waitangi, the city council has to adopt a management plan. It has developed a draft with Ōnuku Runanga. The plan involves a number of changes to the reserve, which is made up of three parts: Park of Silence, Park of Reflection and Park of Healing. The draft plan proposes to provide a transparent covering over the exposed face of the hangi pit on Beach Rd. Public information and interpretation materials would be developed with Ōnuku Runanga and Akaroa Civic Trust to reflect tangata whenua and European heritage. Pou would be installed in the reserve on the corner of Ōnuku

SACRED: Takapūneke Reserve sits between Akaroa and the settlement of Ōnuku and has immense cultural and spiritual significance.

Rd and Stanley Pl, with nga ngutu gateways to be installed at the two main entrances on Beach Rd and the top car park off Ōnuku Rd. Under the plan, public access would be restricted to the Park of Silence on the western side of the reserve unless granted permission by Ōnuku Runanga. It would be fenced off, and a kohatu rock would be installed as a sacred memorial. All animals would be banned from the reserve, apart from sheep for grazing. Camping,

food and bicycles would also be prohibited. The draft plan aims to build a car park on the capped city council landfill site off Ōnuku Rd. A parking and turning area would also be developed along Beach Rd next to the Akaroa Sewage Treatment Plant. As part of that, Beach Rd would be upgraded to accommodate visitor buses and vehicles. A path network would be constructed within the reserve, the majority of which would be easily accessible, while the Immi-

gration Barracks building could be used for education purposes, with the ability to add toilet facilities. Under the draft, if the opportunity arose, the existing power and telephone lines and water reticulation would be redirected to outside the reserve. This could be done via the road network. In the early 19th century, Takapūneke was an important centre for trade between Ngai Tahu and European settlers. In 1830, a bloody massacre took place there, resulting in the site becoming tapu, or sacred. In 2002, the New Zealand Historic Places Trust registered Takapūneke as wāhi tapu (a place of outstanding historical or cultural heritage value). Seven years later it was classified as a historic reserve under the Reserves Act 1977. The city council wants feedback on the draft plan, with consultation closing on December 15. It would then go to a hearings panel, with a final decision expected in April. Drop-in sessions will be held on October 31 from 5-6.30pm in the civic offices, Hereford St, and November 4 from 11am-2.30pm at the Akaroa Sports Complex Centre, Rue Lavaud.

New Sumner paceman takes Gapper scores top early wickets in opening win women’s sevens title „„ By Gordon Findlater IT ONLY took Sumner’s new pace bowler four deliveries to make an impact as they defeated New Brighton by five wickets in their first one-day match of the season. Former Lancaster Park club premier bowler Paddy Sullivan began his tenure with Sumner in style by taking 3/20 in nine overs, including a wicket with his fourth delivery. Sullivan was lured to Sumner by captain Johnny Beveridge who played with him in the New Zealand police team. The two officers had pivotal roles in Sumner’s victory on Saturday. Sumner won the toss and elected to bowl on the artificial pitch at South Brighton Domain. The match was originally due to be played at St Leonards Square. However, heavy rain left the wicket unplayable. After the fourth ball heroics, Sumner struck again quickly with a run out by Jonny Percasky before Sullivan claimed his second wicket in the eighth over to have New Brighton scrambling at 14/3. A couple of partnerships then formed mainly around New Brighton skipper Matt Fielding (76) and David Cattermole (33). Dan Vann and Marcus Thompson both bowled tidy

spells but the introduction of Jonny Percasky tightened the screws with his 1/18 off nine

debut, to the crease. The pair put on a 60-run partnership before Rees was run out for 27. Bev-


CAPTAIN’S KNOCK: Johnny Beveridge’s 64 off 69 deliveries helped Sumner start their summer with a win.

overs. Opening bowlers Dean Smith and Sullivan came back to finish things off and New Brighton ended their 45 overs on 158/8. In reply, Sumner made a positive start with Tom Gooday and Christopher Wilson’s opening stand of 28 runs coming quickly. Then three quick wickets fell to have Sumner 38/3. This brought Beveridge and David Rees, who made his

eridge continued to play shots and take the game away from New Brighton with Michael Newton-Vesty’s support. Beveridge fell just before the final runs could be scored. However his captain’s knock of 64 off 69 deliveries ensured Sumner’s season began with a win. Sumner won in 34 overs with five wickets in hand. Their next match will see them take on Heathcote at Heathcote Domain on Saturday.

TERAUORIWA Gapper was named women’s sevens player of the year at the recent Canterbury rugby awards. From Heathcote Valley, she was one of the players who received awards at The Piano Centre for Music and the Arts. Gapper’s fitness, speed and physicality make her an ideal sevens player. Gapper also has a high work rate, aptitude on defence and the ability to beat defenders one-onone. As captain, Gapper led the Canterbury women’s sevens team to the South Island regional title, as well as the national tournament. She always features prominently whenever she wears the red and black jersey.

REAL ESTATE Million Dollar Views 34 Koromiko Crescent, Diamond Harbour | $829,000 4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: FM5243

Paradise is closer than you think... and this just happens to be the tastiest slice of it on offer in Church Bay, Diamond Harbour. Not only are the views absolutely irresistible, with 180 degrees from Governors Bay to the heads including the ever changing and lively Lyttelton Port, but the quality and well thought out 4 bedroom home takes full advantage of the sun and the simple joys of life itself. As you enter the kitchen and dining room the connection with the harbour becomes very apparent. The thought of cooking, entertaining, or just relaxing with such views will make your imagination run wild. The kitchen itself is a modern and slick example of great design, and the nearby dining area and living makes conversation or family time so easy. The adjoining main living area is a private haven, without being too disconnected from the other living areas, and the opening out to the decking and BBQ area makes for even more living options. All bedrooms have been cleverly designed to connect to the outdoors and views by opening to decking, while remaining private and very personal. All bedrooms have great storage, with the master boasting a huge walk in wardrobe. The master has it's own special features, being at a lower level than the other rooms, and a well appointed ensuite with shower and toilet that also separately opens to the entertaining area outside for convenience. The master bathroom, complete with bath and shower, connects to one of the bedrooms,

making it ideal for guests or teenagers. A study nook is tucked away off the hallway, complete with wiring for data and tv, and even has a built in safe. The property is fully alarmed. This home is a great Bed & Breakfast business opportunity. Other features of the property include a heatpump with pre-wiring for another, underfloor heating in the wet areas, and quality chocolate carpets. The yard is thoughtfully planted and well established, with full consideration given to the astounding views. Diamond harbour itself is an increasingly popular place to enjoy everything that is great about the peninsula. The community is very close, with many sports clubs and services. 2 licensed restaurants make eating out a breeze, as well as groceries available locally, or a short ride on the ferry to Lyttelton to indulge. The ferry runs every 30 mins at peak, and hourly at other times, with buses also running to Cashmere or Lincoln for schools. 3 doctors are available, as well as a local pre school and primary school. Recreational activities in the area are plentiful, from boating, to walks, mountain biking, golf, and the nearby Orton Bradley Park.

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.




The magazine for gardeners who like to get their hands dirty


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 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.

Timeless (1) - Diego And The Rangers Of The Vastlantic by Armand Baltazar

Imagine a world where the past, present and future have collided. A world that is timeless. This is the world Diego was born into… For fans of Rick Riordan and Brian Selznick, author-artist Armand Baltazar introduces the first book in a new fantasy adventure series. Over 150 full-colour illustrations bring this cinematic story to life! You’ve never seen Earth like this before: continents reshaped, oceans re-formed, cities rebuilt. Dinosaurs roam the plains alongside herds of buffalo, and giant robots navigate the same waters as steam-powered ships. In New Chicago, Diego’s middle school hallways buzz with kids from all eras of history and from cultures all over the world. The pieces do not always fit together neatly, but this is the world he loves. There are those, however, who do not share his affection. On his thirteenth birthday, Diego learns of a special gift he has, a secret that is part of something much bigger. When his father, New Chicago’s top engineer, is taken by the Aeternum, Diego must rescue him and prevent this evil group from disrupting the fragile peace humanity has forged.

Takapu-neke Reserve, near Akaroa, is a site of immense cultural significance to Nga-i Tahu and, in particular, to local iwi Onuku Ru-nanga. Up until the arrival of Europeans to New Zealand in the early 19th century, Takapu-neke was a major trading village. In 1830, a significant event involving the massacre of many Nga-i Tahu people resulted in the reserve becoming tapu (sacred). The reserve was registered as Wa-hi Tapu (place of outstanding historical or cultural heritage value) in 2002 by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust, and in 2009, Takapu-neke was classified as a Historic Reserve under the Reserves Act 1977. In 2012, the Council adopted the Takapu-neke Conservation Report. Information leaflets and feedback forms are available from all Council libraries and service centres, the Civic Offices at 53 Hereford Street, Christchurch, or online via the Council’s website: www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay Written objections to or suggestions on the draft reserve management plan can be made to the Council from Wednesday, 11 October 2017 until 5pm on Friday, 15 December 2017. If you wish to discuss any aspect of this process, please contact:
