Jetty decision tomorrow By Annabelle Dick IT’S A day Governors Bay residents have waited nearly two years for. Tomorrow, the city council will decide whether it will sell the jetty to the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Trust. The trust has been fighting to

buy the damaged jetty and fully restore it to save it from being demolished or abandoned. Trust member Phil Jackson said it’s been a long battle but it’s likely the jetty will be sold to the trust. “We’ve been working very hard for this – it’s an amazing asset that we don’t want to lose

and there’s a real passion to save it. A city council staff report found it’s the number one option to sell it to the trust but everything is weighting on the meeting,” he said. The jetty has been closed since the February 22 earthquake, due to its unsafe condition, and it’s estimated to cost

Heathcote Valley

more than $3 million to repair. The city council has been given four options on what to do with the jetty – sell it to the trust to repair and buy it back, which is the most preferred option, abandon it, demolish it or council to undertake repairs. • Turn to page 5

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK IT’S GREAT to see a community group taking charge of its situation. I’m talking about the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Trust which hopefully tomorrow will be able to buy the earthquake damaged jetty for $1. The trust has ambitious plans to take control of the jetty, raise the bulk of the $3 million plus needed to repair it and then sell the jetty back to the city council for $1. The city council will then maintain it in the future. It’s a fantastic plan by the trust. The jetty is a real drawcard for the bay. The trust has been fighting to buy the damaged jetty and fully restore it to save it from being demolished or abandoned. You have to applaud them for that. It’s a no brainer that the city council accepts the dollar tomorrow. – Barry Clarke

In Brief INJURED PASSENGER One person was injured and two others escaped relatively unscathed after a car accident in Rapaki on Sunday night. The car rolled on Governors Bay Rd coming into Rapaki at about 9pm. The injured passenger was taken to hospital by ambulance with light to moderate injuries. The scene was cleared 30 minutes after the accident.

VACANT: Redcliffs Pharmacy owner Daryl Sayer has an empty car park behind his business, which can’t be accessed due to the closure of Beachville Rd as a result of road works.

Parking nightmare for businesses By Annabelle Dick A PUBLIC car park closure on Beachville Rd has made parking a nightmare for Redcliffs businesses and customers. The closure of Beachville Rd due to road works has blocked access to the main car park used by nearby businesses. SCIRT is working on kerb and channel installation and sealing the carriageway at the southern end of the road. The car park on Beachville Rd is the main parking option, but now people can only park on Main Rd or elsewhere if they

want to access shops. Redcliffs Pharmacy owner Daryl Sayer said the repairs have been a big hassle to businesses and people trying to access them. “We’ve got a fairly sizeable car park at the back of the pharmacy that services the pharmacy, the fashion shop and the cafeteria, but that’s inaccessible,” he said. The car park behind the Main Rd shops has room for about 15 to 20 cars. Mr Sayer said not having anywhere to park has turned people away from coming into their stores.

“We’re suffering as a result, as people have nowhere to stop,” he said. Redcliffs New World has tried to remedy the problem by allowing people to park in their car park while the work takes place. Mr Sayer posted on the pharmacy’s Facebook page to let people know the supermarket is an option if they struggle to find parking. “Some people have been (parking there), but some feel they can’t so I told people we had (New World’s) blessing to do that,” he said. SCIRT is repairing the south-

ern corner but the northern intersection was supposed to be open to traffic. Instead, SCIRT has closed both ends of the road making it inaccessible. “They said the Beachville Rd section should be open, but they’ve totally closed it off, so there’s no parking there at all,” Mr Sayer said. The repairs are expected to finish around Monday, September 26, and the intersection will be reopened. SCIRT will then move onto repairing the north end of Beachville Rd and northern access will be closed.

ELECTRIC CAR CHARGE The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board will decide whether an electric vehicle charging station will be installed on Nayland St in a board meeting today. If the proposal is accepted, parking on the south side of Nayland St will be restricted to a 60 minute time limit and will be reserved for electric vehicles to charge their batteries. In October 2015, the city council adopted the Christchurch Energy Action Plan, which targets the uptake of electric vehicles.

Heathcote ward – city councillor Paul Lonsdale

I have served three years as councillor for the Hagley-Ferrymead ward. We have been busy with a lot of planning and decision-making around building resilience for the future and working closely with the affected communities on how we achieve that. Throughout this term I have always been accessible even during times of heavy workload. This has enabled me to develop an intimate knowledge and understanding of all the local issues. We have come a long way from three years ago and I believe consistency will be essential in the coming term to continue on the solid path we have created.

Heathcote ward – city councillor Sara Templeton

I love where I live in Heathcote Valley at the centre of our ward. We have been here nearly 20 years and have been involved in many local community groups and activities. Chairing the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board for the last three years has given me the governance experience and relationships necessary to be an effective councillor best able to represent our ward. Christchurch needs councillors who are connected to their wards and have a vision for our city, who understand both the value of community and have a head for business. Please visit my Facebook page for more information. www.facebook.com/saratempletonchch

I am a former business development manager for a CRI, with a highly collaborative working style. I have volunteered extensively within many communities – for three years chairman of the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group; six years as minister’s support person, St Ambrose Church, cafe, and food bank, Aranui; and many years as vestry member All Saints Sumner. I have run several fundraisers for stop abuse and aid programmes. On the Coastal Pathway project I worked closely with the city council and community board. If elected I will ensure our community board understands the diverse communities within its area and get things done.

I am secretary of Sustainable Otautahi Christchurch and treasurer of Viva! with its focus on building sustainable urban villages. I want to share my skills and extend the strong networks in our community. Community boards are an opportunity to involve local communities in decision-making. Having a safe walking route to our newly reclaimed Redcliffs School is a priority for our community, we need to put our case strongly to the city council. Finishing our Coastal Pathway and supporting local businesses are also priorities. Vote for Rosemary: Let’s do it!

Heathcote ward – community board Darrell Latham (Independent)

As a Sumner Community Residents’ Association member I have written submissions relating to the coastal pathway, reserves, fencing, footpaths and, other geotechnical works. I prepared the association’s annual plan and briefed the mayor and city councillors. As a member of Christchurch Coastal Residents United together we achieved a review of the city council’s coastal hazards policy. My background is as a teacher, education centre director and university senior lecturer. Genuine partnerships create strong, effective and resilient communities. Therefore, I support more decision-making being devolved to the local community board level. I have the experience and knowledge to effectively represent Heathcote residents.

Heathcote ward – community board Craig Todd Having lived in the Heathcote ward the majority of my life I have been lucky to enjoy the benefits this community has to offer. With greater powers for decision making being handed to community boards, if elected I would work hard, listen to and make sure the community voice is heard in regards to facilities and infrastructure to achieve the best outcome for all. I believe I have the passion and experience to make a valuable contribution to the well-being and benefit of our community. After six years of Government-appointed commissioners at the helm, people can once again cast a vote for representation onto the Environment Canterbury. The area is represented by the Christchurch Constituency, with four candidates to be elected.

Dr Cynthia Roberts (People’s Choice): I am an ecologist and I live on the estuary. I am passionate about protecting Canterbury’s drinking water, our waterways and our coastline. Like us, our native species depend on a healthy, flourishing environment to thrive. In standing for ECan, I want to use my scientific skills to find

solutions to more sustainably managing our environment including improving our public transport. I bring to the role skills and qualities gained as a parent, a teacher, in tertiary management, running an ecotourism business and as a science advisor for DOC.

In the lead-up to the local body elections, Bay Harbour News asked city councillor candidates their views on a topical issue within the community. This week, we ask Heathcote ward city council candidates what they think the city council should do in response to homeowners’ pleas to remove coastal hazard information the Coastal Hazards Assessment Report.

Elections

City councillor Paul Lonsdale: Residents and ratepayers need to be assured that I am working at city council level on this issue. It was very positive that the mayor met with members of Christchurch Coastal Residents United recently. We are now working together around the whole issue of coastal hazards going forward. The issue of coastal hazards is a serious one for Christchurch and coastal residents. The Tonkin & Taylor report was subjected to a second expert peer review which found problems with aspects of the report and recommended changes be made. It is clear that the scientific experts believe that the report as it currently stands requires further research and work. We need to ensure that the information that we use is the correct information and currently this is not the case. I am committed to working towards ensuring that any coastal hazard information used is the correct information. ​ City councillor Sara Templeton: Climate change and subsequent impacts of sea level rise are going to be one of the most important issues for the next city council to address. Open and transparent communication with the wider community is going to be essential. While there is vocal opposition to the information being on LIMS there are also many thousands of people who haven’t had the chance to express an opinion and there are many who realise that issues such as coastal inundation and erosion cannot be ignored. I have not seen the current wording, but the city council is legally obliged to identify a hazard on a LIM if it is aware of one. This is to protect future owners of properties. Coastal hazards are an issue around the country and a more consistent approach is needed. A National Policy Statement should be in place and the Government need to step up and start discussions on one.

Jetty decision tomorrow • From page 1 “The trust is proposing we rebuild the jetty in the same position and in the same manner that it would be a completely new structure on top of the old one. It would have significant advantages like it will need less maintenance in the years to come,” said Mr Jackson. The city council has no money to undertake the repairs so residents requested city council support to restore the jetty in a community-led project. The trust was set up in April last year with a panel including a land surveyor, a civil engineer and a lawyer who are investigating methods of restoring the jetty and a fundraising strategy. “The make up of the trust is what gave council the confidence in the first place to back it,” he said. If the preferred proposal is accepted, the trust will buy the jetty off the city council for $1, undertake the restoration, before selling it back to the city council for $1. The city council has attributed $535,000 to go towards the cost of fixing the jetty. If the proposal to sell the jetty is approved, the trust will then look at fundraising the remaining cost of the restoration.

Bid to stop river rubbish

Teenager injured in Cave Rock fall By Annabelle Dick A YOUNG man has been left seriously injured after falling off Cave Rock on Saturday night. Two young men climbed the off-limit rock before one fell at about 11.30pm. St John and the Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade attended the scene to help rescue the man who was stuck between the rock and containers. The teenager was unable to walk and had to be carried out by emergency services. “The fall was about seven metres and as far as his health was concerned he was conscious but he had to be lifted out,” chief fire officer Daryl Sayer said. Cave Rock has been closed

off since January 2012 due to rockfall risk and is undergoing repair work. Mr Sayer said there was dozens of teenagers hanging around the area that night, but he didn’t notice any of them drinking on the beach as he was tending to the injured man. “There was lots of kids around but there’s always kids around playing Pokemon GO,” he said. Mr Sayer said this is the first time they’ve seen someone fall off the rock and he hopes people are more careful as we head into summer. Work on Cave Rock will continue and it is expected to open again about Christmas time.

By Cailtin Miles and Annabelle Dick RIVER HEALTH advocates want to see rubbish nets installed to fix an ongoing littering problem in the lower Heathcote River and Avon/Heathcote estuary. Opawaho Heathcote River Network co-chairwoman Helene Mautner and Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai Trust member, Tanya Jenkins presented a deputation to the city council about re-installing booms in the rivers to stop so much rubbish and debris from being left in the rivers. Booms are nets that allow the water to run through them but catch rubbish and stop it from flowing down the river. Dr Mautner wants to see them placed in rivers throughout the city. “It’s important to us to get the rivers around the city clean again and booms will start helping with that process,” Dr Mautner said. The lower Heathcote River and the estuary are of particular concern as they are one of the biggest problem areas for litter. Last year alone, more than three tonnes of rubbish was collected from the lower Heathcote over a five kilometre distance.

RUBBISH: The lower Heathcote River has become a problem area with volunteers collecting more than three tonnes of rubbish over five kilometres. ​ Earlier this year, 20 tonnes of rubbish was collected over 186km of river bank throughout the city. In both 2015 and 2014, the Heathcote catchment also recorded the poorest water quality of all the catchments in Christchurch. Avon-Heathcote Estuary/ Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said the city council need to target the lower Heathcote as that’s where the rubbish gathers. “Everything that comes down the river from all over the city goes to the lower Heathcote and we have the opportunity to catch it before it goes into the estuary,” she said. “It’s our main concern because everything goes into there where we have all this wildlife and it

ends up in the ocean where we have marine life and sea birds who eat it and it kills them.” City council land drainage manager Keith Davidson said staff are happy to investigate booms but, at the moment, there was no money allocated for their re-installment. “There would be a capital cost of stabilising the banks and reinstating the booms, perhaps in the order of $50,000 each, together with increased annual operational costs that are not currently planned or provided for,” Mr Davidson said. Following city council staff investigations, a recommendation of installing the booms will be passed on to the city council so it can look at allocating funding in the next long term plan.

Strengthening Our Communities Our Communities

I love where I live in Heathcote Valley at the centre of our new ward. Our family have lived here almost 20 years, during which time we have been involved in many of the community groups throughout the area.

For a stronger, more resilient Christchurch we need thriving communities. We need places for people of all ages to connect; local facilities and businesses; a healthy environment – and to be engaged meaningfully, in the regeneration of our city. We have many connected, strong neighbourhoods in the Bays area. However, over the last three years I have also worked in Linwood, Woolston, Phillipstown and Bromley where their communities are struggling. There are fantastic community groups working in these areas, with passionate volunteers and a vision for their neighbourhoods, but they need the local facilities, policy framework and financial support to enable them to grow their capacity and reach.

I am a founding member of the Heathcote Village Project and Heathcote Village Garden and am a Justice of the Peace and a member of the Bridge to Rocks Timebank. Christchurch has many diverse communities, but little diversity in representation and decision making. With diverse experience comes a wider range of viewpoints and a more robust, thorough discussion of the issues. Council currently struggles in its understanding of and engagement with the community and a community perspective is needed around the table to change this.

I had a career in teaching prior to having children and was a small business owner before the earthquakes – at which point I sold it to concentrate on the recovery of my community. My connections to the ward have been developed over many years and it’s important that our representatives are accessible. It shouldn’t take a drive across town to catch up with your councillor.

Our Environment Two of the long term issues facing Christchurch are water quality and the impacts of climate change. Fresh water is one of our most precious resources and needs protecting. In Christchurch our Planting fruit trees in Birdsey Reserve. urban rivers, the Heathcote/ Reforestation of our hills and gullies is also happening in some places – more Opawaho and Avon/Otakaro are would be great! both polluted and in need of more care. We also need robust national water quality standards that ensure rivers are clean and healthy enough for us to swim in, and greater protections for our Chairing the Hagley-Ferrymead aquifers.

We also need are connected to their wards to start mitigating our impacts and have a vision for the city, on the climate by measuring our who understand both the value carbon footprint as a city and of community and have a head setting clear goals to reduce it. for business – I am one of those

Your Vote Counts

How do we best support our local independent businesses? When you elected me in 2013 I was excited. Councillors had made promises of greater local decision making and earlier, more meaningful engagement with communities. However, this hasn’t happened. Community Boards have fewer delegations now than they did when we started and engagement has been poorly resourced and patchy.

Redcliffs Community come together to protest for retaining the local school. Our schools are important parts of our communities and need safe travel routes for our children to walk and bike to. One of the projects I’m most proud of this term is Chairing the Victoria Square Independent Reference Group as we oversaw CERA’s consultation process. It was a diverse group and we worked hard to ensure that the public’s desire for a restored Victoria Square was upheld.

Safe and sustainable transport options are one of the best ways to start reducing our impact on the environment. I’ve started cycling again this year for the first time since university and am keen to see the major cycleways projects and Coastal Pathway completed to ensure others can too.

How long have you been a musician? Pretty much all my life, really. I started back in the music business in 1970 at the age of 12. I’m from Saskatchewan, Canada, so I started back there. I grew up in a musical family and we sang at home and at church and school and community events, and it just evolved from there to getting into concerts and television, radio and into the recording studio in my teens. Wow, you’ve spent a long time

in the industry – what are some of the highlights? There’s many. One of the biggest ones for me was when I was in concert with John Denver – that was back in the mid 90s. I had performed at a helicopter skiing resort in British Columbia in the Rocky Mountains in Canada, and Mike Wiegele, who ran the helicopter ski resort,

organised for John Denver and I to do a show together. So we played for all the skiers, staff and all the people who lived in Blue River, British Columbia. We did a show for about and hour and a half together and there was only about 150 people in this big lodge so it was an incredible intimate setting and I was smiling from ear to ear. He was the nicest guy

SCIRT programme on the home straight SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December. The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood • The Beachville Road Seawall in Redcliffs is now complete with the roading due to finish by mid October.

• Governors Bay water main repairs were completed in August. • Lyttelton is still busy with ongoing retaining wall repairs, underground pipe and roading repairs will continue through to the end of the year.

• Work on Evans Pass retaining wall has started with rock stabilisation, and will be finished by December. • The large project in Mt Pleasant and Heathcote repairing wastewater, storm water and roading is due to be completed by November. Your support is helping us to get the job done. Thank you from the SCIRT team. Programme funded by

and we got to hang out for four days and I got to know him and he’s such a story teller – everyone would just sit there and listen to him tell these incredible stories. We had banter and chatted back and forth and shared casual beers together so it was pretty cool. That sounds amazing! I’ve heard you’ve worked with some

other high-profile figures as well? I’ve been on stage with a lot of other celebrities. I worked with Alan Thicke – he had his own TV show, the Alan Thicke Show, in Vancouver, and he’s also noted for Family Ties and Growing Pains. I knew his wife Gloria Loring – we’d done telethons together . . . I worked with a lot of artists at telethons. But Alan came and performed five songs with me on stage with my band. I worked with John Conlee out in Nashville. I’ve worked with Kevin Churko and Cory Churko and they’ve been on all of Shania Twain’s CDs. Kevin’s producing stuff with Ozzy Osbourne and Cory’s now working with Kelly Clarkson, Elton John and Justin Timberlake and the list goes on and on. It’s hard to remember everything, but when you’ve done it for so many years, it just becomes part of what you do. Can you tell me about yourself as a musician? I grew up playing country, blues and gospel music, so that was a lot of the festivals and shows I did. I played piano when I was younger and then I got into guitar playing and never looked back. •Continued on page 10

Our People •Continued from page 9 I played in my first band at 12-years-old and kept on from there. I play several instruments now, including guitar and piano, of course, and ukulele, mandolin, bass guitar, so I’m a bit of a multi- instrumentalist. Then I got into music producing in Canada and I had a studio there and a couple of studios here in New Zealand now. So I was not only producing my own music, but I ended up producing stuff for

television, radio and film, and other people’s CDs and voice overs. I played with Lone Star Cattle Company, which is a country rock recording group in Canada. They’ve had a number of hits out so I was the lead guitarist and one of the lead singers for the band. One of the biggest shows we did was Expo in Vancouver in 1986 – we performed to well over 100,000 people. I also used to sing the national Canadian anthem at the big stadiums for the football, soccer and also baseball games, and you get about 50,000 to 60,000 people in the stadiums there. I

Eddie Simon also had my own TV show in Canada, it was a blues music show called Blues on White. I also had my own radio show here in Christchurch on Plains FM for a short time called Boomers Bay, which was aimed towards the baby boomers, so music from the 50s, 60s and 70s era. How did it feel performing in front of tens of thousands of people? That must have been pretty nerve wracking? When you get in front of a big crowd like that, well, for me personally, it’s just such a natural high and it’s definitely a big buzz. It’s really exciting and you can feel the adrenaline going . . . it’s hard to put into words sometimes. What about your family – were they very musical? There was 11 kids and mum and dad. Out of that, just three of us ended up performing professionally, so myself and my two sisters, Margaret and Pat. We did some recording together and did some TV shows and festivals etc etc, and basically, if anything came along, whether it be a wedding or community event, we were there so we got to be quite well known and respected. My sisters went on to being awardwinning singers in Canada and they were asked to be on TV and go into studios and do back up vocals on other people’s CDs. As a Canadian native, what prompted the move to New

Zealand? I’d gone through a divorce, and I’m a spiritual person, so I said a little prayer and I wanted to find another partner and I said, even if I have to go to the ends of the earth to find her, I will and she ended up being in New Zealand. Her girlfriend had moved to Canada and I ran across her when I was out for coffee and we got chatting and she said: “I have the perfect person for you in Christchurch, New Zealand, and her name is Tracy.” Anyway, she put us in touch and we hit it off and next thing you know I’m selling everything in Canada and moving to New Zealand. I’ve just celebrated 11 years being in New Zealand now. How are you enjoying life in Christchurch? It’s pretty special living here. I like how everybody’s really friendly and you get to know your neighbours. I’ve liked becoming a part of the community and getting involved in the local church and events. The response from people has been absolutely fantastic and the community have been very supportive of my career throughout Christchurch. I’ve had the chance to travel around the country and do some gigs so overall it’s been a positive move and I’m excited to be here. I’m ready to take it to the next level with my business. So what is it like being a musician in New Zealand?

It’s great. I’ve been to Hanmer Springs, Lake Tekapo, Queenstown . . . I’ve been to the West Coast, Hokitika, Napier, Wellington and I’ve got a show coming up in Auckland. I was in Stars in Their Eyes TV show in 2008 here in New Zealand as Leo Sayer. In Gore in 2008, I won three Gold Guitar awards for top instrumentalist and for being one of the top three in the vocalist and song writing category. Tell me about your studio you run from home. I have a studio called Acoustic Wave at my home. I’ve been working at the Rockshop store for nine and a half years and a short time after I’d been there, they asked me to be an acoustic guitar specialist and I got really into acoustic instruments. I also live out on Scarborough Hill by the sea, so Acoustic Wave just seemed to fit. So I’ve been doing that and I’ve also got into video production and digital photography. My focus is to leave a legacy and I’m trying to help up-and-coming artists. So I’m reaching out to singers and songwriters and acoustic guitar players who are trying to make something of their career and, if there’s something I can do with all the experience I have to help out, then I’m down.

Spring Is In The Air Market Comment with Craig Prier Well Spring has definitely sprung! After a steady winter our phones are now red hot with both buyers and sellers deciding to make a move. In fact the last few years have shown us that September through to November is traditionally one of the busiest parts of the year. And it’s easy to see why. Warmer weather, longer days, blossoms and fresh growth on the trees, the sound of lawnmowers and the tantalising smell of backyard bbq’s. Yes, it’s a great time of year. Add to the mix low interest rates and a city that is in full growth mode with low unemployment and a positive outlook then it’s easy to understand why people want to be part of it. Our open homes over the past few weeks have been incredibly busy. Some of our agents are reporting dozens of buyers turning up to view either at open homes or by private appointment. Well done to the property owners who have invested in great marketing programmes. It certainly makes a difference with the type of response you can expect and just goes to show, “you can’t sell a secret”. The owners who have taken the time to prepare their property for sale, invested in great photography and marketing plans are certainly getting the attention and results they deserve. It’s an important point when you are in competition with other property listings. It’s good to give your property the best opportunity of being seen. Talk to any of our agents today if you would like to find out more about how our marketing plans will shine a spotlight on your property!

Downer has agreed to do the complex land-forming works, to the detailed design by Wraight & Associates, at no cost to the Coastal Pathway project. Downer is already on site working on the Beachville Rd seawall repair for the coastal pathway and they have volunteered their services after they finish the seawall work. The 6.5km pathway will extend from Ferrymead to Scarborough Hill and the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group have found spots along the route for special development. After reaching the amount of funding needed, the flat gravelled area opposite Redcliffs Park will now be turned into a nature reserve. “This is one of the highlights of the pathway.

SCIRT spends less in peninsula By Annabelle Dick BANKS PENINSULA has received the least funding for infrastructure repairs out of any ward in the city from the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team. While SCIRT only has five per cent of its infrastructure repair work to go, they have released information on where the $2.2 billion has been allocated within the city. The Banks Peninsula Ward has received $52m, the lowest amount allocated to any ward, while the Hagley-Ferrymead Ward has received $544m – the second highest in the city. In Banks Peninsula, retaining walls have eaten up $43m of the $52m spent. The biggest cost driver in Hagley-Ferrymead has been wastewater infrastructure which has cost $350m. SCIRT puts Banks Peninsula’s small expenditure in comparison to other wards down to

population. About 8580 people live in Banks Peninsula, compared to 49,000 in the Hagley-Ferrymead Ward. SCIRT said there are fewer underground pipes in the Bank Peninsula Ward because there are fewer people living there than in other city council wards. Also, before the earthquakes, there had been an infrastructure renewal programme in the Banks Peninsula Ward by the city council. More than half of SCIRT’s work has been in the BurwoodPegasus Ward, where damage to wastewater pipes and pump stations was more extensive, ultimately amounting to $680m. When SCIRT finishes the citywide infrastructure repairs, the city council and the New Zealand Transport Agency will carry out the remaining road work. SCIRT is in its final three months of work.

Restoring Port Saddle By Annabelle Dick DOZENS OF school children, volunteers and Lyttelton Port of Christchurch staff turned their fingers green for a restoration day on Port Saddle. The school pupils weeded, mulched and planted in the newly-established lizard habitat area, while other volunteers helped with gorse control and weeding on the lower slopes. Herpetologist Marieke Lettink was also on-site to speak about the lizards that live in the area and their habitat. The Port Saddle project covers a 17ha area of LPC-owned land backing onto Urumau Reserve, above the eastern edge of Lyttelton township.

The land has been identified for community recreational use, ecological protection and enhancement of the indigenous flora and fauna. This long term project is being undertaken by LPC with the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust which works to protect and enhance indigenous biodiversity Bedworld found on Banks Peninsula. “I’m very pleased to see our Monique team members, local kids and MMA1065working community members side by side. The Port Saddle project is a key component of our commitment to enhance the ecology and environment of the harbour area for future generations,” said LPC chief executive Peter Davie. “We think that investing in the

biodiversity enhancement, and in cycle and walking tracks within the area, will provide a great environment and better connectivity for Lyttelton locals – human and fauna. This is something that the community clearly told us they wanted as a part of the Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan process and it isBay great that we are now underHarbour News Sept 13 way.” BPCT Karl chairman Mark Chris9x8 tensen said the trust and LPC intend to provide the local community with more hands on opportunities to help in the project. “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with LPC on Port Saddle, and we hope to get more Lyttelton locals along to help with the project.”

DIC K DICK OWN BRO BR

The Lyttelton Rugby Club hosted the N o r t h s (Titahi Bay) U12’s for the 51st Annual Lyttelton v Norths (Titahi Bay) trip last weekend 9th-11th September 2016. The Lyttelton match was played in warm weather, with the match being closely contested until the last quarter, when Norths (Titahi Bay) took control and won the match 39 to 10. The Lyttelton team took confidence from the match and trained hard for the return match in Titahi Bay the following weekend 16th-18th September 2016. In typical Wellington weather, windy and wet, played with both teams showing good skills under the conditions with Lyttelton having the edge in the Forwards and Norths (Titahi

Bay) in Backs. Although, Norths (Titahi Bay), with the wind in the first half got out to an early lead the Lyttelton team fought hard and attacked the opposition goal line for the majority of the second half to lose the match 26-10 to a spirited and good defensive Norths (Titahi Bay) team. The match was watched by a good crowd with 19 Adults from Lyttelton travelling up to Wellington to support the team. A special thank you must go out to all our sponsors and supporters for this Annual trip, especially to MUNZ Local 43 Lyttelton Branch of the Maritime Union of NZ and The Lyttelton Port of Christchurch for their generous support.

I love travel- to enjoy different cuisine, culture, history, scenery, people and their language. You feel a sense of richness of a culture, especially accessing places that are so remote and untouched. Sports games are a highlight of most of my holidays as well as exploring national parks!

Weather is unpredictable – Levy on sugary soft drinks should help check before heading out

News

BY GARY MANCH, NAVIGATIONAL SAFETY OFFICER, LYTTELTON SPRING IS such a delightful time of the year. The blossom trees are blooming and daffodils are standing tall in lush, green fields. It makes you feel grateful to be alive as we enjoy better weather and longer days. However, this nirvana I speak of can change very quickly. When I was driving to work last week, there was a thick, low fog with visibility to almost 50m. This made me think about how quickly weather can change. It can be perfect one minute and rubbish the next. I’ve never been caught out by bad weather in a boat but I have, on the odd occasion, had to ride my motor-cycle home in a southerly downpour. This is not much fun, I can tell you. The beauty of riding my motor-cycle during bad weather is that if I’m caught in the rain, I can usually find a place to pull over until it subsides. There is usually a coffee shop or tea room nearby.

Green MP Eugenie Sage talks about fastfood outlets in the city and their impact on community health and obesity rates

Pirate’s Corner

THERE IS increasing community concern about the number of fastfood outlets around local schools such as Linwood College because of the message it sends children about poor food choices. I’m interested in community views on whether there should be a levy on sugary soft drinks to encourage students and parents to make healthier choices. Obesity is overtaking tobacco as the major cause of preventable illness and death in New Zealand. One in four adult New Zealanders either has type two diabetes or has pre-diabetes and is at risk of getting type two diabetes. By 2021, the cost of treating type two diabetes is expected to be more than $2 billion. This will swamp our health services and swallow a chunk of the current annual $15 billion health budget. Sugar is driving our obesity epidemic and damaging the health of Kiwi kids in Christchurch and across the country.

Fashion The same cannot be said for those who get caught in bad weather while boating. We boaties don’t have the luxury of being close to a spot where we can moor up, grab a coffee and wait for the squall to pass. Checking the weather and conditions before heading out on the ocean, lake or river is absolutely crucial. Every water body has its own hazards which need to be reviewed properly before heading out for the day. Here’s a scenario to consider: A jet boater decides to go up river without checking the weather or mountain forecast. The river is initially low, but as the jet boater heads up the river, the water flow increases due to

Gardening

Motoring

Tasty Bites

snow melt from previous days and heavy rain. Water levels become unmanageable and the jet boater is stuck on a bank in the middle of nowhere, calling for help. This hypothetical situation could have been avoided. The skipper just needed to spend five minutes checking the weather and river forecasts. Preparing well before your day on the water means you will avoid an incident and happily drive back home on one of Canterbury’s calm, spring afternoons. I’ll leave you with this thought: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill.

We know there is a problem with sugary drinks. A levy on sugary soft drinks should help reduce sugar consumption and obesity rates. The revenue it generates could be ploughed back into health promotion programmes. Our smoking rates have declined with Government action to change environmental factors around tobacco. These have included higher excise taxes on tobacco, and the Smoke-free Environments Act which restricts where and how tobacco can be sold and outlaws tobacco advertising and sponsorship. Sugar is robbing our children of their health and knocking years off their life expectancy. We could follow UK’s lead and put children’s health and wellbeing ahead of the interests of the junk food industry. The governments of the UK, Mexico, France and Norway all have such a levy. A tax on sugary drinks is supported by the New Zealand Medical Association and the World Health Organisation. It would be a simple step to help protect the health of a generation of children. • Email your views to eugenie. sage@parliament.govt.nz

Happy birthday SCHOOLS Roald Dahl

Diamond Harbour School celebrated the 100th birthday of Roald Dahl who was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide. He died in 1990. The children made play dough sweets from Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, made curled paper beards for Mr Twit, drew around each other to make BFG’s and enjoyed a quiz.Â

SPORTS

Pupils enjoy skiing and snow IT’S BEEN a busy week for Our Lady Star of the Sea School pupils. The year 5-8 pupils went on their annual ski trip to Mt Hutt. The children go on a ski trip every year from year 5 through to year 8. The weather was magical, with great snow and everyone had a blast. Year 7 pupil Lucy Walker also organised a Mufti Day for Maddie. Maddie is from Christchurch who is raising money for a kidney transplant. This was totally generated by pupils and led by Lucy. SNOW DAY: Georgie Powell, Alex Cutforth and Katie Hygate. ​

LYTTELTON Primary School has been fitted out with a new playground after officially opening its school premises in June. The playground was opened on September 12 by pupils who sung the school waiata. Principal Diana Feary said the playground has been covered with busy and active children since it was officially opened. “They love it. After school it’s just as busy as it is during school time,� she said. The playground includes slides, tight ropes and a climbing frame. “From where the seats come around to the astro turf it’s designed to replicate the taniwha look. We have the blue to show

SCENIC: The new playground is said to signify the sea and the hills of Lyttelton.

the sea and then when the slide is built green it will be a reference to the hills around us,� Mrs Feary said. Naylor Love Construction headed the project and the cost came under the whole building’s budget of about $15 million.

Ms Feary has resigned as principal but will stay in the role until January 26, 2017. The school is searching for a replacement who has to be appointed by November 26 as part of the Employment Relations Act 2000.

THRILLED: Lyttelton Football Club players Tane Gunn, Isaac Warren, Connor Buckley and Sayyad Mille look forward to trading in their old soccer gear for new equipment. ​

Port gives to football club By Annabelle Dick IT WAS a case of out with the old and in with the new for Lyttelton Football Club after the port company funded the purchase of new sporting equipment. The club developed a programme in 2012 to teach young children about the game and Lyttelton Port of Christchurch sponsored the purchase of sporting gear to cater for increasing numbers. Club head coach Mick

Stephenson said world famous football players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were driving young people to the sport. “Until now we’ve been running the programme using secondhand equipment and make-shift goal posts, so we haven’t had the resources to really excel,” he said. “The equipment LPC funded has been the best thing to happen since we started. We now have almost 100 children registered so we’ve decided to run

the programme throughout the school term.” The Introduction to Football course teaches youngsters, aged eight to 13, the rules of the sport and helps them develop the basic skills a beginner footballer needs. “We’ve seen an increase in young girls keen to take up the sport,” Stephenson said. “Football is a great way to bring people together.” Six senior club players, eager to help the next generation develop their skills, volunteer

their time to run the sessions. LPC chief executive Peter Davie said the sponsorship was part of the company’s ongoing commitment to the harbour basin community. “It’s great to see so many local youngsters developing an interest in sport and we’re pleased that our sponsorship has had such a positive impact on the programme,” he said. The programme is held three times a week at the Lyttelton Primary School and the Lyttelton Recreation Centre.

The Health effects of sugar

S

hould we be alarmed or is this likely to be another area that science backtracks on? The answer to that question is Yes, we should be worried, there are real problems caused by the volume of sugar being consumed by the average person and when look back over the last decades the problem is getting worse, not better. Developments in research and understanding the fields of nutrition and food safety change how we view products we consume and patterns of consumption can make the negative effects of foods more pronounced. While these advances should be embraced, as each development leads to better understanding and health outcomes it can also be frustrating to the average consumer who can feel like just when they ‘get’ a good healthy eating plan together, the rules change. The recommendations for sugar are a good example of how information can be confusing, some sources encourage the complete ban on all sugar containing products and others, such as the heart foundation recommend a reduction rather than complete removal. It’s not so confusing though really, at no time in history has sugar ever been

presented as a healthy food, but as in the past it took more effort to consume sugar it was less of a problem, we could ‘get away with it’. In the past sugar was something that you could control through how much you added, in baking and to your cup of tea. This knowledge then transferred into the first generation of convenience food, if it was sweet, it had sugar in it. What we now face as a challenge is not that suddenly sugar is bad, but that it is added, often quietly, to many of the processed foods we consume, even when they aren’t sweet. The availability and often-reduced price of these foods compared to healthier option make them an easy choice to the time poor or uneducated consumer. There are some simple tips you can follow, including reading food labels; consuming as much food as possible in a state close to its natural form and avoiding sugary drinks. Consumers also need to be aware of marketing claims that do not provide the full nutritional picture of a product. A sensible place to start is by combining a diet low in processed food and sugar combined with regular activity as the path to long-term health.

What we now face as a challenge is not that suddenly sugar is bad, but that it is added, often quietly to many of the processed foods we consume, even when they aren’t sweet.

Ferrymead Red Herring

by Jonothan Cullinane

Murder, political intrigue, bent cops and the fate of a nation - a thriller set in the murky underworld of 1951 New Zealand. A man overboard, a murder and a lot of loose ends ... In Auckland 1951 the workers and the government are heading for bloody confrontation and the waterfront is the frontline. But this is a war with more than two sides and nothing is what it seems. Into the secret world of rival union politics, dark political O agendas and worldwide anti-communist hysteria steps ER T Johnny Molloy, a private detective with secrets of his own. E NT Caitlin O’Carolan, a feisty young reporter, is following her own leads. Together they begin to uncover a conspiracy that goes to the heart of the Establishment - and which K will threaten their own lives in the process. Filled with BOO memorable characters, including many colourful real-life TH I S figures from recent New Zealand history, Red Herring is the stunning debut from a vibrant new voice in New Zealand fiction.

Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery

$1

Hercule Poirot returns in another brilliant murder mystery that can only be solved by the eponymous Belgian detective and his ‘little grey cells’. ‘What I intend to say to you will come as a shock . . .’Lady Athelinda Playford has planned a house party at her mansion in Clonakilty, County Cork, but it is no ordinary gathering. As guests arrive, Lady Playford summons her lawyer to make an urgent change to her will – one she intends to announce at dinner that night. She has decided to cut off her two children without a penny and leave her fortune to someone who has only weeks to live . . . Among Lady Playford’s guests are two men she has never met – the famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited . . . until Poirot starts to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murderer to strike. But why does she seem so determined to provoke, in the presence of a possible killer? When the crime is committed in spite of Poirot’s best efforts to stop it, and the victim is not who he expected it to be, will he be able to find the culprit and solve the mystery? Following the phenomenal global success of The Monogram Murders, which was published to critical acclaim following a co-ordinated international launch in September 2014, international best-selling crime writer Sophie Hannah has been commissioned by Agatha Christie Limited to pen a second fully-authorised Poirot novel. The new book marks the centenary of the creation of Christie’s world-famous detective Hercule Poirot, introduced in her first book The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover, shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day out for every woman. One of the appeals the Expo has to visitors is the variety of companies involved with everything from jewellery and shoes to activewear and fitness to skincare and health products to gourmet food and wine and even a company offering plantbased cooking classes for Kids & Adults. There really is something for everyone and all ages. Renee Murray from NZME Events, organiser of the Expo says “Our aim is to have as wide of a range of companies involved with the Expo as possible. Women are all different and their individual interests are so diverse. One woman may love the latest in makeup or skincare but the woman beside her may be more interested in cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail or sampling handmade cheese. It’s great on the weekend to see all the various women visit the show, from teenagers to business women, mothers to grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each other’s company. It’s becoming more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together as well, with the daughter, mother and grandmother all enjoying the show and spending the day with each other.” Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo for the first time with their range of champagne, vodka, port and wines. Popular at other Expo’s this year has been the Royal Dragon’s elite flavour vodka collection with some flavours selling out. Introducing the most tantalizing and unique flavoured vodka collection of its time flavours include Watermelon, Green Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and Lychee… A great vodka collection to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in your favourite cocktail! Visit the large Brandhouse site at the show to sample from their fabulous range and take home what you love. Christinz Clothing will visit the show for the first time, travelling from Balclutha to showcase her selection of Designer Clothing including; pants, stunning tops, skirts, base layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a flattering shape through front to suit all sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black and silver in the colour range these tops look great with jeans, skirts or leggings. Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo Fashion Zone. The High Protein Breakfast Company will travel all the way from Auckland with their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not available in store yet this range of muesli not only tastes great but helps with weight management, health and fitness. Without many of the sugars or fillers that so many processed breakfast foods contain these mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and with flavours including Berry, Peach & Nectarine and Feijoa you will want to buy them all. Visit the High Protein Breakfast Company in the Expo Taste Zone.
