Return of Timeball tower

• By Caitlin Miles

WORK TO rebuild the tower

section of the historic Lyttelton

Timeball Station is expected to

start in July.

Following the June 13, 2011,

earthquake, Lyttelton Timeball

Station was dismantled due to

the damage.

Work on rebuilding the tower

and flagpole was meant to start

in June last year.

However, it was put on hold

due to other work near the site.

Heritage New Zealand decided

to put the work on hold

so significant earthquake

repair road works on

Sumner Rd and Reserve

Tce could be carried out by

the Stronger Christchurch

Ken

Maynard

Infrastructure Rebuild

Team.

With the road works

going on, it made it difficult

for workers to access the Timeball

site to carry out repair work.

Now that the road works have

been completed, work on

the project can start.

At the time, residents

were worried about how

long the project would

be put on hold. Lyttelton

Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard

said it was great news to

have the rebuild going

ahead. •Turn to page 4

FROM

THE

REPORTER’S

DESK

As the new reporter to Bay

Harbour News it’s been a busy

introduction to the role, touching

base with local community

groups and getting my head

around issues important to the

area.

My first job was attending

the Lyttelton police meeting

last week and it was a good

way to meet members of the

community. The concerns people

had over policing appears to have

been some what quelled due to

the meeting (page 3).

Having a health hub is

important to any community but

especially Akaroa. The district

needs to fundraise $2.5 million

to replace the hospital they

lost in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. At the weekend a

classic car show raised thousands

for the health hub.

If you would like to get in

touch, phone me on 021 915 924.

Police reassure residents

• By Caitlin Miles

A MEETING between Lyttelton

police and residents has

defused tensions after locals

felt authorities weren’t in the

community enough.

After months of concerns

from residents over the lack of

policing in the community a

meeting was held to clarify the

crime rate in the community

and answer questions from residents.

Canterbury

metro commander

Superintendent

Lane Todd, Canterbury

area prevention

manager

Peter

Newsome

Acting Inspector

Paul Reeves,

Senior Sergeant

Stephen McDaniel

POLICING: The meeting between police and residents covered concerns and provided

information as to how police operate in the area.

and Sergeant Dave Knowles ran

the meeting on Thursday at the

Lyttelton Primary School hall.

About 25 people attended,

including members of the Banks

Peninsula Community Board,

community patrol team and

local MPs.

Superintendent Todd started the

meeting by saying the station located

in the town would not close.

However, he also said the station

would not be manned 24/7

as there was not enough resources,

especially since the crime rate

has reduced in the area.

Acting Inspector Reeves

said from 2015 to 2016 crime

in the area had dropped 8 per

cent, with 122 crimes reported

last year, down from the 133

reported the year before.

One woman said she was concerned

no one was at the police

station and wanted to know

what the police did when they

weren’t in the station.

Sergeant Knowles said the

six officers have a large area

to cover, including Diamond

Harbour, and they are often

mobile. However, if something is

reported someone will be there

to follow it.

“We are probably out and

about more than five years ago

because of the mobility.

“If we aren’t working or on

shift someone from town will be

there,” Sergeant Knowles said.

Several residents said when

they called the station no one

was there and they could not

report anything.

Superintendent Todd said if

they need to call police because

they are concerned for their

safety they should phone 111.

“Don’t think there’s just six

people in Lyttelton, there is a

team in Christchurch and they

are not far away, they could be

doing a patrol near by, get a call

and be here,” he said.

The police also encouraged

people to join the City to Sumner

Community Patrol, and

offer help around their own

community.

Former police officer and

resident Peter Newsome said he

would still like to see police in

the area 24/7 but was happy the

officers had reassured the community.

“People know more about

what is going on in the area,” Mr

Newsome said.

In Brief

LIBRARY HOURS

The Redcliffs Village Library

will have longer operating

hours from April 6. It will

be open for a late night on

Thursday and longer on

Saturday. On Monday-

Wednesday and Friday the

library will operate from 10am

to 4pm, On Thursday it will be

open from 10am to 7pm and on

Saturday it will be open from

10am to 12.30pm. Additional

staff has been recruited to keep

the library open for longer and

meet community needs.

CLARIFICATION

Last week’s page one Bay

Harbour News article

which said city council had

budgeted $100,000 for the

Scarborough Park changing

sheds in its Annual Plan was

incorrect. We got it wrong. The

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board asked

city council to include the

money in its draft Annual

Plan to build changing sheds

on Sumner beach to prevent

people using the Sumner

beach toilets at Marriner St

as changing rooms. These

were the toilets resident Peter

Hansen was referring to,

not the Scarborough Park

changing sheds.

Timeball

repair set for

July start

•From page 1

“The Timeball is to Lyttelton

what the Cathedral is to

Christchurch,” Mr Maynard said.

Heritage Destinations General

Manager Nick Chin said a project

manager for the rebuild has

been assigned and a stonemason

selected.

“The tower will be built first

to accommodate the Timeball

mechanism,” Mr Chin said.

“The stone masonry work

will take place in the spring and

summer months when the weather

is at its best to ensure proper

curing.”

The project’s budget remains

within the approximately

$3 million raised through

fundraising.

The plan is to restore the tower

mechanism and flagpole.

When the Timeball Station was

dismantled, Heritage New Zealand

put as much heritage material it

could into storage so it could be

later returned to the site.

Mr Maynard said it was

important to the community to

have the tower rebuilt.

“It’s one of the things we have

always wanted to get rebuilt . . . we

look forward to it starting,”

he said.

MULTI-PURPOSE: The concept design for the new 12-bed Akaroa Health Hub has been approved by the Akaroa Structure Group

and CDHB. ​

Funds for health hub streaming in

• By Caitlin Miles

SO FAR $800,000 has been

raised for the Akaroa Health

Hub, and getting the remaining

$1.7 million is an “achievable”

goal.

Health hub structure group

chairman Alan Bradford said it

was “incredible” to see so many

people donate money to the

service.

The community has been

without a hospital since it

was demolished following the

September 2010 earthquake.

They need to raise $2.5

million for the planned hospital,

HOURS:

Mon - Fri 9.30am - 5pm

Sat 10am - 3pm

after Ngai Tahu pulled out of

the agreement to provide some

funding last year.

Residents have been

instrumental in the fundraising,

a group of residents decided to

host a car show to help collect

money for the health hub. It

raised $11,000 at the weekend

from the show.

Roughly 1600 attended the

inaugural La Grande Auto

Show Akaroa held at the

recreation ground. It featured

a broad range of cars from

1907 to 2016, Archibalds

Christchurch sponsored the

event and featured 10 cars in

the show.

Mr Bradford said: “It’s just

incredible how people have been

stepping up and helping,”

One elderly gentleman

donated $10,000.

“He has lived in the area

his whole life and he wants to

see it happen,” Mr Bradford

said.

The Guardians of Akaroa

Hospital also donated a large

sum of money to help with the

efforts.

The health hub is planned to

be built on the original site on

Onuku Rd and includes 12 beds.

have sold 11.

“That’s pretty amazing,”

Mr Bradford said given the

reaction and support from the

community he thought raising

$2.5 million was achievable.

“When we first started it

seemed like a huge target but

with how people have got

behind it and supported it I

think we’ll get there all right,”

Mr Bradford said.

Museum eyes up London St site

• By Caitlin Miles

THE LYTTELTON Historical

Museum Society could soon

have a new home on London

St if the city council approves

gifting the land to the

group.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has

recommended the city council

gift the land at 33-35 London St

to the museum.

The society is trying to

acquire the former Lyttelton

Service Centre site after the

museum was badly damaged

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and had to be

demolished.

During the last three years,

more than 8500 items have been

catalogued and photographed

and are slowly being made

available to view online via the

museum’s website.

The museum collection was

rescued and is currently stored

at the Air Force Museum of

New Zealand.

Since the building was

demolished, the society has

been looking at various sites

around Lyttelton to re-establish

itself.

In 2016, it decided the site on

London St would be the best fit.

A report to the city council

said the new museum would

play an important role in

education, leisure and tourism.

The society estimates 10,000

visitors a year.

The Lyttelton Master Plan

refers to the importance of

having the museum back in the

community not only to display

the heritage in the area, but as

a place for people to “connect”

with the stories and people of

the area.

“The Lyttelton Historical

Museum is integral to local

landscape and heritage,” the

plan says.

SAVING

HISTORY:

The Fire

Service

rescued

Lyttelton

Museum’s

historic items

after the

February

22, 2011,

earthquake. ​

The society believes it can

raise $5.9m for a new building

through various grants and

funding.

If the city council accepts the

recommendation, the society

hope to have the museum open

by 2019.

Bid to attract

caravan

business

to Scott Park

• By Caitlin Miles

THE CITY council is looking for

a small cafe caravan to set up on

Scott Park in Ferrymead.

City council staff are currently

working through a master plan for

the area and want to see if a small

business would do well at the 2

Main Rd site.

A temporary lease of 12 months

is being offered to a small business

which could operate out of

a caravan, with the possibility of

combining it with a water sports

hire business.

City council head of facilities,

property and planning, Bruce Rendall,

said it would be a good spot

for a business looking to serve food

and offer water sport hire.

“Scott Park services both aquatic

recreation uses and the adjacent

coastal path, so this opportunity

would suit both food and water

sport vendors,” Mr Rendall said.

The business is likely to operate

between the hours of 6am and 7pm

seven days a week at a cost of $25 a

day, plus GST.

Interested businesses have until

March 30 to make proposals to the

city council.

Big turnout for fun run

IT WAS perfect weather for the

annual City2Surf on Sunday,

with thousands of runners and

walkers taking part in the event.

The 14km event started at

9am on Sunday from Pioneer

Stadium’s Centennial Park. An

hour later, the Sport Canterbury

6km started from Hansen Park,

Opawa. Both events finished at

the Ferrymead playing fields.

Star Media events organiser

Vanessa Fleming said entries are

up on last year.

The 150 team entries ranged in

size from 1000-strong “Hewaka

Tapu” to the five-member “We

Thought They Said Rum.”

At the finish line there were

various healthy food options

from salad to pizza, along with

freebies, a fun zone for children,

prizes, entertainment and much

more.

•Gilbert Wealleans was there

to capture the action throughout

the day.

READY: Star Media events

organiser Vanessa Fleming

and event sponsor Mike Pero

CHALLENGE: Rugby legend

Richie McCaw took up the

challenge.

THEY’RE OFF: It was hectic at the start line as runners headed

towards Ferrymead.

SUCCESS: Matt Dryden (left,

2nd), Ieuan van der Peet (1st,

centre), and Jason Matulick

were the first three to cross

the finish line after 14km.

TEAM: More than 1000 people joined the Hewaka Tapu team,

their pink shirts made them easy to spot throughout the day.

THRILL: Elation and exhaustion as runners, joggers and

walkers cross the finish line.

SMALL CHANGE

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at

Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community.

At the Heart of Our Community

Market Comment with Craig Prier

Typically at this time of year the number of properties

coming to the market increases significantly over

previous months. This year has been the same.

Throughout February and now March we have seen a

genuine increase in properties available for buyers

to ponder over and choose from. However,

keep in mind, good properties with robust and

widespread marketing programes still attract

the most interest and chances are you will still be having to compete with other qualified

buyers in the marketplace. So, a wee word of advice; the property you looked at today and

want to think about until tomorrow may be the same property that someone else looked at

yesterday and will be making a decision on today!

It’s always good to carefully consider what you are buying but we recommend that you get

yourself in a position to buy so when the right property for you comes along you can act fast if you have to.

Best wishes and happy hunting!

Easter Egg Colouring

Egg colouring competition again, with

DAMAGE: More

than 80ha of the

Ohinetahi Reserve

was destroyed in

the Port Hills fire

last month and it

is a race against

nature to try and

rejuvenate the land.

$35k boost for reserve

• By Caitlin Miles and

Noah Graham

REJUVENATION OF

Ohinetahi Reserve has been

given a $35,000 boost.

The Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee decided to approve

the funding to help the Summit

Road Society with the work

needed – which could take years

and cost millions.

Society president Bill Woods

said it was great news which

would enable the group to start

repairing the 83ha of damage,

starting with the 1.3km of

fencing which was ruined in last

month’s Port Hills fires.

Mr Woods said it would cost

more than $16,500 to repair the

fencing, and hiring a contractor

to re-plant the reserve would

cost more than $8 million.

“The $35,000 gives us a real

boost, we can start getting trees

and other things we need,” Mr

Woods said.

Zone committee chairwoman

Paula Smith said it was “time

sensitive” to get this funding

to organisations as quickly as

possible.

The society has set up a

Givealittle page to raise money

for the project, which has raised

$7647.

Mr Woods said money raised

will be spent as needed, with the

group wanting to work quickly

to start rejuvenating the area.

“We’re facing a pretty formidable

task, we need money now,”

he said.

Mr Woods said they want to

get a recovery programme under

way quickly before the risk of

erosion and sediment could

affect nearby creeks and the

harbour basin if there is heavy

rainfall.

The Summit Road Society

was the hardest hit landowner

from the fire, with a huge loss in

native biodiversity in Ohinetahi

Reserve.

Art auction to benefit school

ARTISTS FROM around the

country are helping Lyttelton

Primary School raise money for

a technology space.

The Peninsula Art Auction

will be held next month and

is the major fundraiser for the

school, with the money raised

going towards furthering the

technology department at the

school.

Principal Brendan Wright said

he looked forward to what the

money raised from the event

could do for the pupils at the

school.

“We look forward to using the

funds raised to support learning

in and through the arts (and) to

support new and exciting school

initiatives to inspire and engage

our learners,” Mr Wright said.

More than 60 artists from the

peninsula and further afield have

decided to gift pieces of art for

the auction, along with 12 businesses

which are also offering

support.

One of the organisers, Claire

Warren, said they were thankful

for the support.

“The organising committee

and the school are always so

grateful for the wonderful support

we receive from our local

businesses and the many residents

who come to the event,”

she said.

It will be the seventh time this

event has run.

The event will take place on

April 8-9 at the school and the

AUCTION: This piece by Sheila Brown, called Above the Flax,

Tui, will be auctioned off at the show. With the money going

towards the school. ​

art works will be available for

viewing and silent auction bidding

all weekend by gold coin

donation.

The silent auction will then be

combined with the live auction

gala event at 7pm on Sunday.

•Tickets for the live auction

cost $40 and will be available

for purchase from www.

peninsula-art.co.nz and from

Lyttelton Primary School. For

theme for the show was ‘Once Upon a Time . . .’ The school

designed an exhibit which showed what a supermarket might

look like if the plant life took it over. They grew their own

Community cleans up Lyttelton

Lyttelton

resident Juliet

Neill was

unhappy with

the state of her

neighbourhood,

so she helped

organise a clean up. She

writes about the area’s

rubbish problem

Recently we had a big harbour

clean-up. About 60 wonderful

people braved the rain and slogged

away for one-and-a-half hours. I

expected maybe six or seven hardy

souls to appear, so imagine my

surprise and delight when so many

turned up. I can’t thank people

enough.

We covered areas from the Lyttelton

football field, right through

to Cass Bay, as well as the old

Shadbolt House car park. At least a

skip full of rubbish was collected,

as well as two bins worth of recycling.

As a Green Party member, I

organised this event along with

Ken Maynard and Chris Brown

(both Lyttelton Labour people),

not just as a political statement,

but to show that we don’t just talk,

we walk the talk as well. However,

my main motivation was my passion

for the environment and our

beautiful harbour.

In the 23 years I have lived in

Lyttelton, I have seen great change,

and none so great as in the postearthquake

years. During that

time, we have become increasingly

a playground for Christchurch,

meaning that more people come

over to enjoy our harbour, some

of whom have a very uncaring attitude

towards it.

One of the results of this is that

people can go down to the waterfront

to do exactly as they wish

and they do – chucking their cans,

bottles, cigarette butts everywhere

they go or drive, tagging and

sometimes lighting fires.

While the city council and the

port company do some cleaning

up, it is seldom enough and any

amount of clean ups do not get to

the source of the problem.

Meanwhile, wildlife, both marine

and terrestrial, are suffering.

Fish ingest the plastic in the sea

and, if they don’t die, they pass

it down the food chain, affecting

us as well. It is estimated that a

quarter of the fish we eat contain

plastic. So what can we do to help

instil pride in our local environment?

The first and obvious thing

we can do is to have better policing.

Our police station is no longer

staffed constantly. Some years ago

there was 24-hour policing in Lyttelton.

We all knew the police here

and they were friendly and helpful.

Secondly, we need to encourage

personal responsibility through

education. A lot is going on in our

local schools, but there still seems

to be a level of ignorance, wilful

or otherwise, of environmental

problems among adults.

Thirdly, we need to create

a coastal environment that is

pleasing and restful. Our accessible

coastal area has either

been stripped of trees or badly

maintained invasive species have

stripped it of trees and shrubs. So

much could be done to beautify

the area and make it a place where

birds can thrive, a place which is

respected and engenders respect.

Finally, and most importantly,

we need Government action at

both a local and national level.

This includes providing incentives

for the return of bottles and cans

(50 cents per item?). If plastic bags

can’t be phased out altogether,

then at least a charge should be

put on them to encourage people

to use reusable bags. We need

Government action to get rid of as

much plastic wrapping as possible.

There are many alternatives.

So a big thank you to all those

who joined in the clean up and

let us not forget that this is a great

start to pushing for change on this

enormous problem.

COLLECTION: Ruth Dyson also took part in the clean up, helping collect a skip worth of

rubbish.

MPs join residents to help tidy area

Green MP

Eugenie Sage

writes about the

clean up and the

importance of

reducing the use of plastic

bags by being more aware

of the damage they cause

to the environment

I was impressed that about 60

people turned up at Naval Point

on a wet, cold and grey Sunday

morning recently to help clean

up the Lyttelton foreshore and

tank farm area. In spite of the

southerly rain, people came

from Lyttelton, Mt Pleasant and

town. I worked with primary

school teacher, Bonnie, and

engineering student Sam. Like

many, they have busy lives but

wanted to give something back

to their community.

Thanks to everyone who

came, including Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson, and the support

of the city council, the port

company and Naval Point

Yacht Club, we left Magazine

Bay, nearby reserves, the sports

TEAM: About 60 volunteers

ground and surrounding areas

better than when we started.

The rubbish removed included

tyres, old furniture, household

waste, broken glass, cans and

plastic. And there was the bonus

of meeting new people.

We can each do our best to

recycle, re-use, be conscious

consumers and avoid buying

over packaged goods. Groups

such as Plastic Bag Free Lyttelton

help with their advocacy.

But we need political leadership

by central Government to really

reduce waste.

Large retailers in the United

Kingdom have reduced their

use of single-use plastic bags by

85 per cent since the UK Government

introduced a 5p levy

in October 2015. In six months,

the levy saved more than 40,800

tonnes of plastic and generated

£92 million, which the retailers

donated to charities of their

choice. A win-win solution.

It’s estimated that New Zealanders

use 1.6 billion single-use

plastic bags annually, with

around 40,000 sent to landfills

each hour. Making them uses

around 192,000 barrels of oil

each year, which adds to our

climate pollution.

New Zealand is one of the

few Organisation for Economic

Cooperation and Development

countries which hasn’t

legislated on single-use plastic

bags. This is in spite of a 16,266

signature petition to Parliament

in 2014/15 supported by Forest

and Bird, Greenpeace and the

World Wildlife Fund. Government

members on the select

committee chose the status quo

and recommended no action.

That needs to change.

Sumner play for second title

SUMNER HAVE put

themselves in a good position

to secure the overall senior A

metro cricket title on Saturday.

After the first two innings

of their final two-day match

of the season against Halswell,

Sumner holds a 69-run lead.

They are currently third and

out of title contention in the

two-day competition.

However, an outright win

against Halswell will see them

win the overall title, which

combines points from both

the one and two-day competitions.

In December, Sumner won

the one-day competition

with a nine wicket win over

Lancaster Park Addington in

the final.

Saturday’s first day at

Halswell Domain saw Sumner

put into bat in the morning.

They made a steady start

This four-race series

combines two low-tide races

on Sumner bar in the morning

making starts before being

dismissed. Captain Johnny

Beveridge also chipped in

with 24. However, none of the

top order were able to go onto

scores of note. The middle order

stumbled with four ducks

but Dan Vann managed to

score a free-flowing 43 off 33

balls as Sumner reached a first

innings total of 160 all out.

In reply, Halswell were very

cautious with Sumner’s opening

bowlers Dean Smith (3-33)

and Andrew Bird (3-11), giving

very little away.

Halswell captain Leighton

Johnston (46) was the best of

the batsmen and used his luck

well after being dropped early

on.

Halswell were eventually

dismissed for 118.

Sumner then had time to

begin their second innings

and after eight overs are 27/1,

holding a 69 run lead going

into Saturday.

Taylors Mistake lifesavers haul

in the medals at New Brighton

• By Gordon Findlater

TAYLORS MISTAKE Surf Life

Saving Club’s Liam O’Loughlin

and Fred Teear added to their

growing list of national titles

together at the weekend.

O’Loughlin and Teear won

gold in the open men’s double

ski race final at the New Zealand

Surf Life Saving Championships

on New Brighton Beach. They

finished a boat length clear of

Mairangi Bay, Auckland, to win

their third national title in the

event and their first since 2011.

“It was really good being in

Christchurch this year; we really

wanted to get it done on our own

beach,” said O’Loughlin.

The pair have paddled together

for Taylors Mistake since

2010. However, their history

together stretches beyond that in

flat water kayaking.

Both O’Loughlin and Teear

have won national titles in the

K2 and K4. They have been part

of New Zealand teams at World

Cup races and came close to

qualifying for the 2012 London

Olympics.

The pair still train together up

to five times a week and, since

going to ski boats, have represented

New Zealand in surf life

saving. O’Loughlin also claimed

a silver medal in the open men’s

ski race at New Brighton.

Georgia Stroud claimed a gold

in the 2km beach run. She won

the under-19 race before going

Searching for Santa in Lapland

YOU Travel company

director Melissa

Landrebe visited a town

named Luosto in Finish

Lapland. She writes

about the highlights of

her stay

AFTER AN interesting British

Airways charter flight, where the

cabin was decked with tinsel and

our flight attendants wore Santa

hats and sang Christmas carols,

we landed in Rovaniemi to begin

a quest to find Santa.

We were met by our representative

and led to our coach, which

would take us on the 1½- hour

journey into the Arctic Circle to

a little township called Luosto.

As it turns out, Luosto is a veritable

winter wonderland that is

supposedly home to the big man

in the red suit.

We arrived late afternoon on

December 23, under what was

described by our representative

as an amazing display of Aurora

borealis.

We were issued with snow suits

and boots and then transported

to our choice of accommodation,

in our case a two-storey log

cabin.

After settling in, we made

our way to dinner pulling the

children on toboggans, and ate a

hearty buffet meal. The trip back

to the log cabin proved to be a lot

easier, as it was downhill.

Being in the Arctic Circle in

the middle of winter is a joy in itself

with approximately 4½ hours

of light a day. The rest of the time

it is dark, lit only by stars and

flames from oil burners placed

alongside walkways.

With the arrival of Christmas

Eve the search for Santa began

in earnest. First we were taken

tobogganing at the base of the

skifield situated 2min by coach

from town central, then we were

back in the coach heading for the

snowmobile field where Santa

was supposedly seen earlier doing

doughnuts.

Alas, when we arrived Santa

SCENIC:

Luosto is

a winter

wonderland

as Melissa

Landrebe

and

daughter

Paige

Beardsley

found out.

was nowhere to be seen; however,

there was a good number of

snowmobiles to be ridden.

Next up was a trip to the husky

kennels and after a brief explanation

of how to control a pack of

energetic sled dogs, we were off.

This was physically exerting,

but very exciting and was probably

the activity enjoyed the most

by our group.

After the sled rides it was time

for lunch and we got to meet

some of Santa’s special elves.

What an exciting bunch they

were, full of vim and vigour.

We then re-boarded the coach

heading for Santa’s post office,

and we were amazed when the

elf working there produced a letter

to Santa written by one of the

children aboard our coach – a

truly magical moment.

We started heading back

to town central, stopping on

the way to see where Santa’s

special elves live. Then it was

time to head back to dinner in

anticipation of Christmas Day to

follow.

As it was, we were unsuccessful

in finding Santa that day.

However, in hindsight he was

probably busy delivering parcels

to children in other parts of the

world.

Christmas Day dawned, it

snowed, the fire was lit and presents

were opened.

Then, what better thing to do

on Christmas Day, it was off to

ride a sleigh pulled by reindeer,

a journey through snow-covered

trees at a leisurely pace.

We then had to check up on

one of Santa’s special elves before

heading back to get ready for

Christmas dinner and a disco for

the children.

This is definitely a bucket-list

trip.

Driven

Mercedes-Benz cabriolet for fun in the sun

• By Ross Kiddie

OVER THE years I’ve been guilty

of heavily criticising Canterbury’s

changeable climate.

I make no apology for that,

the ‘four seasons in one day’

temperatures that we get here can

be frustrating.

Take last weekend when I was

driving Mercedes-Benz’s C200

cabriolet, the weather was so foul

I barely had any opportunity to

drive with the roof lowered, only

briefly experiencing open-air

motoring.

However, in spite of our fickle

weather, sales of convertibles here

don’t seem to be waning. Those

who I know that own a convertible

enjoy them even though

there are just a few glorious days

in a year when driving with the

top open really suits.

The C200 convertible is part of

a wide-ranging C-Class line-up.

It arrives here in three variations,

well I should say three different

engine options. There’s a hearty

4-litre, 375kW V8, a 3-litre,

270kW V6 and the turbocharged

2-litre, four-cylinder which is the

subject of this evaluation. All are

petrol-fuelled.

The 1991cc turbo engine

is the same as that which I’ve

experienced many times in the

Mercedes-Benz line-up, and it is

characterised by its healthy power

outputs (135kW and 300Nm) and

smooth operating manner. It is

harnessed to a nine-speed automatic

transmission, the combination

is reactive, power flows freely

and response to driver input is

constantly encouraging.

That is something that I’ve

come to enjoy with this engine,

it is wholeheartedly honest and

works with freedom through the

transmission.

Even though it is far from being

the most powerful configuration

(280kW in AMG form), it

is a mainstream engine which

punches way above its weight.

Its performance figures are testament

to that, the car will accelerate

to 100km/h from a standstill

in 8.2sec and it will make an

overtaking manoeuvre in 5.1sec

(80km/h to 120km/h).

These figures provide the driver

with a satisfying feel. At the same

time the C200 doesn’t gobble fuel

unnecessarily, Mercedes-Benz

claims a 6.8-litre per 100km

(42mpg) combined cycle average.

That sits well with the 8.8l/100km

(33mpg) figure constantly sitting

on the test car’s fuel usage readout.

The C200 also has a variety of

drive options that the driver can

choose to suit his/her style, all are

self-explanatory – eco, comfort,

sport, sport plus, or you can load

in your own preferred protocols.

Personally, I preferred the standard

sport setting, it still allows the

engine freedom without being

overly flighty such as it is when in

sport plus setting.

I took the test car through

the flowing scenic route of State

Highway 72 branching off near

Hororata and enjoyed the C200

MERCEDES-BENZ C200 CABRIOLET:

The roof raises and lowers with a

simple flick of a switch.

cabriolet’s quiet motion of speed,

sound is well isolated, and you can’t

always say that about convertibles,

it travels with grace and dignity.

It also feels rigid in the body,

the lack of a solid roof doesn’t

affect the strength of the structure.

The C200 feels taut and

firmly planted, a lot of the latter

has to do with the quality of the

rubber; huge, sport specification

Continental tyres (225/45 and

245/40 x 18in) have unyielding

grip along with positive feedback.

Steering feel is light rather than

firm, but that matters little, it is

directional and it responds positively

to cornering pressure.

While its driving dynamics sit

well with the convertible’s look,

it’s best remembered that in this

form (and the coupe) it is only

a four-seater, there are only two

seat belts in the rear, if you want

a C-Class and seat five you’ll have

to choose between the sedan or

the wagon.

The C200 convertible lands

here at $89,900, the test car was

carrying a few extra bits and

pieces which raised the price to

$94,790. And that is something

a C200 buyer will need to appreciate,

there are a multitude of

specification enhancements and

buying choices that can personalise

or enhance the car. Even in

standard form it is well-equipped

and, of course, the roof raises and

lowers with the flick of a button.

While the C200 cabriolet will

be far from Mercedes-Benz’s biggest

seller, it is there to keep sales

rolling along, the German brand

is experiencing boom times down

under.

Popular bakery adds international

ideas to its lineup

.kiwi

BAY HARBOUR

The team at Lyttelton Bakery is now into

its third year in the new Norwich Quay

premises, and the business is going very

well, says owner Ian Scott.

“We are well supported by the local

community and we thank them for that,”

he says.

In addition to the delicious fresh breads,

rolls, biscuits, slices, pies and savouries

the customers enjoy, Lyttelton Bakery also

incorporates the Glamour Cake business,

run by team member Bree. A specialist in

fine patisserie work, she creates a tempting

selection of scrumptious sweet treats for

Glamour Cake.

Just before Christmas there was a

temporary addition to the baking team, a

young woman from Switzerland, who had

seen the Glamour Cakes on Facebook

and wanted to find out more about

the bakery. Qualified baker Rebecca

Strickler spent a week at Lyttelton

Bakery, where she not only saw pies

being made for the first time in her life,

she also passed on many of her own

Swiss baking ideas.

“She had never seen sausage rolls

or savouries being made either,” says

Ian. “The Swiss tend to eat more sweet

foods.”

In June this year, a young baker

from France will also spend time at

the bakery, adding more international

input to the bakery’s lineup.

With Easter fast approaching, Ian

and the team are busy baking not only the

traditional hot cross buns, but also a Dutch

favourite, Oliebollen. This is a deep-fried

sweet donut containing a mixture of fruit –

a very rich treat usually eaten at New Year

in The Netherlands, but perfect to enjoy at

Easter time in New Zealand.

Customers can also sit down and relax

with a tasty treat and a hot drink in the

bakery’s cosy café.

Lyttelton Bakery is located at 8

Norwich Quay and is open from 6.30am-

5pm Monday to Friday and 7am-3pm

CONTINUING EDUCATION

FLAME FILES

Farm life has

plenty to offer

young people

From city girl to sharemilker to equity

farmer, North Canterbury’s Wendy Croft has

come a long way in a sector that allows young

people to work hard and prosper.

“I was working in a bank before I got into

farming. I had never milked a cow, but we got

into sharemilking to save money, and it was

easier for me to manage it than to get someone

else to do it.”

Three years ago Wendy

enrolled in Ara Institute

of Canterbury’s NZ

Diploma in Agribusiness

Management; a practical

qualification for working

farmers that is delivered

online with face to face

tutorials in Culverden.

The programme is

run with the Primary

ITO and was rated as

“excellent” by the New

Zealand Qualifications

Authority (NZQA) in a

recent report.

With two young

children and a business

to run, Wendy balanced her studies with her

family and work commitments.

““I think my husband and I worked together

every day for three years! It was hard, and it’s

not for everyone. It’s challenging but it’s really

rewarding.”

Does she miss her city lifestyle? “Yes,

sometimes I miss the city, but I love the lifestyle

here – I have good neighbours and good staff.”

SCARRED: Scorched trees on the Port Hills, some are still hot and in danger of

reigniting.

Tree trunks still smouldering

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

NEARLY A month after

the big Port Hills fire

started we are still getting

the odd call to smouldering

stumps or tree trunks.

The latest was on Monday

off Dyers Pass Rd

during a day of rain and

it shows how deep and

persistent large wildfires

can be.

There were a couple of

instances this week of what

could kindly be called as

muddled thinking.

In the first on Monday in

Knowles St a large burning

candle was placed on the

Ferrymead

top of a free standing fireplace

– that was operating

due to the cold snap.

Of course the candle

melted all over and down

the fireplace and ignited.

No real damage but

smoke throughout.

The second involved a

tourist in a hotel room

who put the kettle on an

element on the stove top to

make tea.

Unfortunately it was an

electric, and far more importantly,

plastic kettle.

Smoke and mess again.

We also saw a toaster in

a cupboard in Redwood

cause a lot of heat and

some real concern from the

A Piece of the World

by Christina Baker Kline

‘Graceful, moving and powerful . . . a wonderful

story that seems to have been waiting, all this time,

for Kline to come along and tell it’ MICHAEL CHABON

For decades, Christina Olson’s whole world has been

a rocky, windswept point on the coast of Maine, the

farmhouse her ancestors fled to from the Salem witch trials.

A world she fears she will never leave. As a girl, farm life asked more

of Christina than it did her family, her wasting limbs turning every task

into a challenge. But the very tenacity that strengthened her may dash

her chances for a life beyond her chores and extinguish her hopes

for love. Years pass and Christina’s solitude is broken by the arrival

of Andrew Wyeth, a young artist who is fixated on the isolated farm

house. In Christina he will discover more than a kindred spirit; for him,

she will become a muse like no other…From the bestselling author

of ORPHAN TRAIN comes a luminous portrait of a woman of grit and

grace, as heartwarming as it is gripping. A story that allows the reader

to marvel at Andrew Wyeth’s iconic portrait from the other side.

Geek Girl (6) - Forever Geek

by Holly Smale

My name is Harriet Manners and I’ll be a geek forever…The FINAL

book in the bestselling, award-winning GEEK GIRL series is here!

Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is. Modelling isn’t a

sure-fire route to popularity. Neither is making endless lists. The people

you love don’t expect you to transform into someone else. Statistically

you are more likely to not meet your Australian ex-boyfriend in

Australia than bump into him there. So on the trip of a lifetime Down

Under Harriet’s to-do lists are gone and it’s Nat’s time to shine! Yet

with nearly-not-quite-boyfriend Jasper back home, Harriet’s completely

unprepared to see supermodel ex Nick. Is the fashion world about to

turn ugly for GEEK GIRL? It’s time for Harriet to face the future. Time to

work out where her heart lies. To learn how to let go...

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

(e.g. the bone). When this happens in the

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted

in a knot. These knots (the hard and painful

areas in your muscles felt during massage)

weaken and shorten your muscles and can

cause referred pain.

This drawing is an example of pain areas

(the red area), caused by triggerpoints (the

black X).

This is your muscle’s reaction to continuous


irritation. In most cases, there are multiple

causes for this irritation. These could be:

repeated actions without breaks; constant

static posture resulting in constant muscle

contraction; lack of healthy blood flow; bad

posture resulting in continuous high loading

of some muscles, etc.

As you can see, your thumb pain can

originate in your neck. Pain in your little

.kiwi




finger or forearm

can originate in

your chest. This

is the reason that

your therapist

may treat an

area, other than


where you are

experiencing


pain.

In the following

drawing you can

see the painful

areas in the head

caused by the

triggerpoint in the neck. This is often the

result of poor posture.

Physical Sense has been treating

this condition for the last 25 years.


Their experience is:


• Most of the patients who have had their


pain for less than a year leave this clinic free

of pain (but they have to be very careful to

avoid relapses).

• When the OOS pain has been there

for more than a year, that percentage drops

to 60%.

• The other 40% will leave the clinic with

relief of pain and with knowledge about

numerous strategies to relieve and handle

the remaining pain.

RSI, OOS or Gradual process

Injury can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

Client Information Booklet”. It is full of

handy tips on how to self treat and avoid

this condition.

REAL ESTATE

Get your skates on!

8 Basil Place, Redcliffs

Auction: Thursday 30th March 2017, unless sold prior

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 office/study | 3 car-garage | 4 off-street parks | Listing # FM5115

Set on a generous 794 sq m section, this

immaculately presented home has that

“feel good factor”! A grand, double height

entrance sets the tone as you walk in the

double front doors. There’s an abundance

of sunlight flooding in through skylights

above, creating a generous sense of space.

Two interconnected living areas create an

expansive entertainment zone, with both

having direct access to the outdoor seating

area and pristine gardens beyond. Casual

living is tiled, and the open plan layout

incorporates the kitchen and dining areas,

while the formal living room is carpeted

in a beautiful deep charcoal, with a feature

fireplace.

The designer kitchen is fully equipped

to cater to all of your culinary needs, with

granite bench tops, gas hobs, and a quality

stainless steel wall oven. Loads of bench

and storage space and a clever design mean

everything is right at your fingertips.

There are three double bedrooms here,

and an office or fourth bedroom. The main

bathroom has a spa bath and separate

shower and both bathrooms are elegant in

design, with feature skylights and quality

fittings creating a real air of contemporary

style.

The garden is the real cherry on top,

providing a lush green environment, which

is sunny and private with lovely views of

the surrounding hills. A nicely separated

utility area and vege garden will appeal

to the green-fingered. Triple car garaging

with internal access and loads of off street

parking add the final convenience factors,

as if you needed more convincing, so get

your skates on and come and check this

one out!
