‘over it’

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council has

apologised for failing to prevent

Marriner St in Sumner from

flooding after the heavy rainfall

last week.

The apology comes after the

city council promised action to

prevent further

flooding on

the street last

year. In May

last year, a

city council

spokesperson

told Bay

Harbour News

Darrell

Latham

the drain

outlet, which

is located on

Scarborough Beach, would be

cleared prior to future weather

events.

However, the drain was not

cleared on Monday last week,

which resulted in the flooding.

“Unfortunately, the action

plan was not followed correctly

for the Marriner St pipe outlet

due to a miscommunication

between the city council and

the contractor, for which we are

sorry,” said city council land

Marriner St resident Rob

been a problem for the past 24

years. “We are just over it. They

have promised to address it for

a bit of a joke now, a joke that is

YOU CAN see why Marriner St residents

continue to get hacked off when heavy rain

comes (see page 1).

The city council says keeping a drain

outlet on Scarborough Beach clear is the

key to stopping flooding on the street.

Last week when the downpour came it flooded. Apparently

there was “miscommunication” between council staff and the

contractor which cleans the drains when weather forecasters say

it is going to rain.

That’s not much consolation for the long suffering residents of

Marriner St, who say the problem has been going on for years.

Let’s see what happens the next time it rains.

Miscommunication may not be an acceptable reason.

Pay plan for board members

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCILLORS could

face a financial dilemma this

year: Sacrifice some of their

salary for lower paid community

board members.

The Remuneration Authority,

which sets

the pay of city

councillors and

community

board members,

said if the city

council wished

Andrew

Turner

Sara

Templeton

to increase community

board

remuneration

following the

October 12

elections, it

would have to

come from the

money allocated

towards the

salaries of city

councillors.

After the elections,

councils

around New

Zealand will allocate their governance

pools, deciding on the

salaries of city councillors and if

any money from the pool will be

put aside for community board

members.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula Ward city councillor

LOW PAY: Banks Peninsula Community Board member John

McLister is not running in the local body elections because of

concerns over money and time.

Andrew Turner, who is paid

$118,220, said he would support

a decision to sacrifice the salaries

of city councillors to supplement

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

“I think the level of pay for the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board is not adequate and is certainly

out of line when compared

to other city boards,” he said.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton, who is paid

$102,400, said she would also be

open to city councillor salaries

being used to better remunerate

the board. She is concerned the

current model was preventing

people from running for community

boards.

“We need to enable a wide

range of people to stand for our

community boards, not just

in Banks Peninsula but across

the city, part of that is better

remuneration,” she said.

Four members of the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

told the Bay Harbour News they

may not stand in the local body

elections due to concerns over

the money they receive and the

time pressures they face.

Banks Peninsula board members

– excluding the chairwoman

and city councillors – currently

receive $9670 a year. That is

less than half the $24,098 paid

to Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board members.

Banks Peninsula chairwoman

Pam Richardson is paid $19,342,

while Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

chairman Mike Mora ($48,196).

The current remuneration

model is set by population, so

boards with larger populations

get better remuneration.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member John McLister

said the remuneration board

members received was

“ridiculously low” for the

amount of work they have to do.

“I will not run because

financially, it is harmful,” he

said. “I don’t think we do less

than the inner city community

boards and I don’t think they

have the complex issues that we

have.”

Ship has sailed on saving Kia Ora

• By Louis Day

A BADLY damaged historic

racing yacht stranded in

Lyttelton will not be

restored.

The 121-year-old Kia Ora,

which has been sitting on

Lyttelton Port Company land for

more than 20 years on the corner

of Norwich Quay and Donald St,

will be destroyed.

LPC planned to dispose of the

vessel unless the owner came

forward and agreed to pay for its

removal.

Family members of Robert

Bryson, the last owner of the

boat, have decided not to remove

it because of its poor condition.

They have salvaged pieces of it as

mementoes instead.

Ian Knewstubb, former

chairman of the now-defunct

Norwich Quay Historic Precinct

Society, said the vessel was of

high significance.

“A boat built not long after the

Kia Ora called The Rainbow in

Auckland has just been restored

and they spent $800,000 on

it. That is how these boats are

looked upon in other parts of the

country. Down here it is different,

I don’t think anyone gives a

hoot about maritime heritage in

Canterbury,” he said.

The Kia Ora was sunk in the

1960s and was moved by Mr

Bryson to a vacant section in

Locksley Ave, Dallington.

It was then gifted to the

Norwich Quay Historic Precinct

Society and relocated to its

current location where it has

deteriorated to a condition

DECAY: The Kia Ora vessel will not be restored to its prime condition like in 1900, after

sitting on Lyttelton Port Company land for more than 20 years.

beyond repair.

Mr Bryson’s granddaughter

Emma Graham said the Kia Ora

was well past the point of saving.

“It was borderline 20 years

ago, so the ship has sailed so to

speak,” she said.

“I would love to have that

boat fixed and going again,

but it is just beyond repair. My

grandfather should have fixed

it all those years ago, but he had

so many other projects and also

heart problems to deal with.”

LPC port services and security

manager Tony Simpson saw the

boat as a potential risk to the

public.

“Our first step was to place

fencing around the Kia Ora, but

we believe this is an inadequate

long-term option to mitigate the

risk, as the stability of the way it

is propped up and the condition

of the hull itself led us to believe

that it could collapse,” he said.

The vessel was designed by

More time to make seaplane submissions

• By Louis Day

THE PUBLIC now have until

the end of the month to make a

submission on the plan to bring

seaplanes to Lyttelton Harbour.

Submissions were initially due

by April 30 but the Civil Aviation

Authority has extended the

deadline out to May 31.

The authority is seeking

feedback on Rangiora-based

company Peninsula Air

Ltd’s plan to construct a

waterdrome in Lyttelton

Harbour.

The 1km runway

would be located

between Rapaki and

Quail Island and provide

seaplanes with an area

to take off and land.

One of Peninsula Air

Ltd’s directors Mark Christensen

Mark

Christensen

told Bay Harbour News the

seaplanes would be used to

take people on scenic tours

of the peninsula.

“It is still very early

days, but we are thinking

about providing a service

that would complement

all the other tourist

operations in the

peninsula,” he said.

Mr Christensen hopes the

project will emulate the Sydney

seaplanes experience.

“In concept, it is a similar

operation to the Sydney one

involving a seaplane that takes

people on scenic flights,” he said.

“If you look at the Sydney

operation, they also deliver

people to tourist destinations as

well.”

Public submissions can be sent

to: aerodromes@caa.govt.nz

Professor RJ Scott, head of

Canterbury College’s engineering

school and cousin of Antarctic

explorer Captain Robert Falcon

Scott.

The Kia Ora would go on to

win the annual regatta in 1900

against staunch opposition, such

as The Rainbow.

WILD: Peacocks in Lyttelton are being relocated to protect rare geckos and

skinks.

Peacocks moved after

threat to shoot them

• By Louis Day

WILD PEACOCKS are

being relocated from part

of Lyttelton to stop them

eating endangered geckos

and skinks.

The move comes after a

farmer sent her

neighbour, Janelle

Wills, a legal letter

stating she would

shoot the peacocks

which entered her

property.

The farmer,

who has declined

to be named,

said the peacocks

eat geckos and

skinks on her

property.

Miss Wills feeds the

wild peacocks and can

sometimes have up to 30

around her house.

She said she was

“heartbroken” to have

to relocate them and

“disgusted” the farmer had

plans to eat them.

“They climb around my

house and look through

Anita

Spencer

my windows at me and, as

soon as I leave my house,

they follow me. It’s going

to be heartbreaking to see

them go,” she said.

The farmer’s legal

letter stated any peacock

which wanders onto

private property is

considered to be

trespassing under

the Impounding Act

and is permitted to

be shot.

She also told Bay

Harbour News: “I

certainly hope to

eat one and provide

meat to several

people.”

“If I just had sheep

it would not matter but

with these other creatures

[skinks and geckos] it

makes for a very different

situation. It is like a

peacock eating a diamond

and that diamond is of

value to New Zealand, it is

not just me that is losing

out.”

Department of

Conservation senior

biodiversity ranger Anita

Spencer said peacocks

posed a potential threat to

skinks and geckos.

“Peacocks have wide

diet preferences and are

interested in anything that

moves. Overseas they eat

lizards, rodents and snakes,

so they could potentially

eat a threatened lizard if

they came across one,” she

said. Ms Spencer confirmed

there were rare geckos and

skinks in the area.

“We know there are three

threatened lizard species

in the area and we have

been told by the property

owner two of those species

can be found on her land.

DOC hasn’t carried out any

formal surveys to confirm

this, but we understand a

herpetologist has visited

the property and identified

the lizards.”

Miss Wills said the

peacocks are being

relocated throughout the

Canterbury region with the

help of Serendipity Animal

Rescue.

Chasing the Dream

By Shaun Wallace

Born on the 2nd of June 1960 to Jamaican parents, Shaun is a

Londoner born and bred, and has been a devoted Chelsea fan

since 1967. From the age of 12, Shaun knew he wanted to be

a barrister and was determined to make it. Despite one or two

setbacks along the way, he finally managed to fulfil his childhood

ambition when he was called to the bar in November 1984.

He has been a Criminal Defence Advocate now for nearly 34

years, and has worked tirelessly on cases ranging from murder

to money laundering to firearms to drug trafficking. Shaun has

also regularly appeared on British television quiz shows such

as Fifteen-To-One, The Weakest Link, Greed, and Are You an

Egghead?. Shaun catapulted to national prominence and recognition when, on the 5th

December 2004, he became the first black person to win the BBC’s renowned Mastermind.

Since 2009, he has become a household name, regularly appearing as The Dark Destroyer

on the smash ITV hit teatime quiz show, The Chase.

The Butterfly Room

By Lucinda riley

Posy Montague is approaching her seventieth birthday. Still living

in her beautiful family home, Admiral House, set in the glorious

Suffolk countryside where she spent her own idyllic childhood

catching butterflies with her beloved father, and raised her own

children, Posy knows she must make an agonising decision.

Despite the memories the house holds, and the exquisite garden

she has spent twenty-five years creating, the house is crumbling

around her, and Posy knows the time has come to sell it.

Then a face appears from the past - Freddie, her first love, who

abandoned her and left her heartbroken fifty years ago. Already

struggling to cope with her son Sam’s inept business dealings,

and the sudden reappearance of her younger son Nick after ten years in Australia, Posy

is reluctant to trust in Freddie’s renewed affection. And unbeknown to Posy, Freddie - and

Admiral House - have a devastating secret to reveal.

DIMMED: Lights in the Lyttelton Harbour have been reduced in intensity after

Turning down the lights

LIGHTING IN Lyttelton

Harbour has been dimmed

from Diamond Harbour

residents.

The red and green spar

buoys have been turned

The lights were put in

Company to help guide

ships through the harbour.

Diamond Harbour

resident Nathan Graham,

the spar buoys as looking

like “a Christmas themed

accident scene,” saw it as

a step in the right

Drones cause more issues

• By Louis Day

DRONES ARE continuing

to be a problem in the Bay

Harbour News area.

Lyttelton resident

Sandra Cunningham was

watching television in her

living room recently when

a drone began hovering

above her porch at about

9pm.

“The incident was

disturbing as it hovered

there, less than 10ft (3m)

above my head. It remained

motionless for nearly 1min.

I had the creepy feeling that

I was being watched,” she

said.

It comes after a

low-flying drone was

suspected of spying on

teenage girls just after

Christmas last year.

The drone was seen

hovering over Whero Ave,

Diamond Harbour, about

6.30pm on December 27.

Anna Clinch, 14, was in

a swimming pool with a

teenage friend, when she

saw the drone.

She believed it was being

used to spy on them.

Anna said the drone was

flying near power lines.

“It just hovered above

the pool while we were

swimming for about

30sec and we were really

concerned about it,” she

said.

“We moved out of the

way because we thought

it was a bit bizarre and

went inside. And the drone

continued to fly back and

forth over the house a

couple of times [before

leaving].”

The Civil Aviation

Authority states drone

operators must have

consent from the owner of

the property they want to

fly over.

The CAA does not

investigate breaches of

privacy, and investigations

are dealt with by police.

Apology over

flooding in

Sumner

•From page 1

Dr Latham said this was

one of a series of flooding

events since the city council

formulated an action plan last

year.

“The current approach

of manually clearing beach

drainage outlets is costing

ratepayers thousands of

dollars and it appears to be

not working particularly well

because drainage outlets are

buried in sand or they cannot

be located. This approach is

not sustainable and given the

recent storm event, it is now

time for the city council to

acknowledge that the current

methodology is not effective

and to investigate a more

effective plan of action and

solution to this problem,” he

said.

The city council is currently

spending $20,000 a year to

keep the drains clear prior to

weather events.

Mr Mullen said it is

investigating whether the

beach level is likely to fall,

meaning sand is less likely

to block drains, or whether

longer-term solutions may be

necessary.

Skepticism over berth benefits

• By Louis Day

LYTTELTON business owners

are not convinced over the

economic benefits the new cruise

berth will bring.

It was announced last week the

Lyttelton Port Company’s new

cruise berth is scheduled to open

in November next year.

While smaller vessels

have continued to visit,

large cruise vessels have been

unable to berth at Lyttelton Port

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

With the new cruise berth in

place, LPC will be able to

welcome cruise vessels which

cater for more than 5000

passengers and 2000 staff.

However, business owners are

concerned tourists will bypass

the port town and go directly

into the central city.

“I don’t know if it will have

any impact because the ones that

currently come, they just ship

everyone to town anyway. On

days when cruise ships come we

notice no difference in business,”

said Shroom Room owner Koryn

Hope.

Eruption Brewing co-owner

Steve Leftly said cruise ships

currently brought little to his

business.

“We have only been exposed

BIG PLANS: 3D still images of what the completed cruise berth will look like when it opens in

November next year.

to the smaller ones [cruise ships]

and they only tend to have a

handful of people that actually

come into Lyttelton,” he said.

ChristchurchNZ destination

development manager Anton

Wilke said it was working on a

bus schedule that would benefit

the local economy.

“There is ongoing liaison

between ChristchurchNZ and

LPC with regard to how the

transfers could look and how

they might pan out, the details

of that are not nailed down at

this point but we are certainly

very conscious of the needs of the

Lyttelton community,” Mr Wilke

said.

Lyttelton Coffee Company

Fire rages, homes at risk

owner Stephen Mateer was more

concerned about the impact the

larger cruise ships would have on

the environment than what they

would do for his business.

“It is going to do a good job of

blocking my view of Quail Island

from my house,” he said.

SNACK: Vittoria shares a post-mushroom afternoon tea with Loki.

Fungus freak-out

AFTER NEARLY six

months in the role I’m

getting pretty confident,

but last week I had a major

freak-out which brought

me back to earth.

Like any toddler, Vittoria

is quick on her feet. Not like

regular quick mind you,

any adult can smash a toddler

in a foot race.

Nah, toddlers have a

magic power which lets

them teleport to wherever

you don’t want them as

soon as their parents’ eyes

are off them.

Last Tuesday, I looked

away for a second and

she was standing on the

TV cabinet (cue lounge

rearrangement).

That was not the worst

one though. Recently, I

turned away to check my

phone as we were playing

out front and before I knew

it she had grabbed up a

mushroom from the bunch

growing near the bins and

shoved it in her wee gob.

I’m no botanist – and I

don’t even know if botanists

know about mushrooms – so

I had zero clue what it was.

All I could think about

was that it could be poisonous.

So I fished out what I

could of the mushroom and

washed her mouth out. Vittoria

was not impressed.

Potential futures rushed

through my mind; bolting to

the emergency room, Vittoria

foaming from the mouth,

her in a hospital bed.

So I rang the poison

hotline for the first time in

my life and was happy to be

calmed, reassured and have

signs to keep watch for.

I kept a sample of the

mushrooms and made

the classic “don’t worry,

Vittoria’s okay” phone call

to Laura. An hour later,

through some research, I

found out the mushroom

was an edible species.

The relief that Vittoria

was actually going to be fine

VITTORIA

& Matt

had another element to it.

I felt like if she had

actually been sick from the

mushroom, or needed to go

the hospital, it would prove

that I was a bad parent and

incapable of looking after

her on my own.

It was on my watch.

“What would people

think?” actually went

through my head even

though I feel I took all the

right steps in the situation.

As the TV cabinet episode

proves, I didn’t quite

learn my lesson.

Now I just have all of the

regular parenting worries to

deal with. Easy.

Wastewater overhaul

AKAROA’S ageing

wastewater infrastructure

is set to be overhauled.

City council senior

project manager Kylie

Hills said the work which

includes wastewater main

replacement, inspections

and pipe repairs, will be

disruptive but essential.

He said parts of the

town’s wastewater pipes

nearing the end of their

expected service life.

“To minimise the impact

of the disruption, we have

waited until the cruise ship

season is over and until

after Easter,” he said.

There are several aspects

to the work, which centres

on reducing the amount of

extra water getting into the

wastewater system through

ingress and infiltration

from groundwater, roof

gutters and downpipes

illegally connected to the

network (down pipes are

supposed to be connected

to the stormwater system

or roadside kerbs) and

from private gully traps

that receive surface water

runoff.

Last year the city council

completed a survey of

the Akaroa wastewater

network using distributed

temperature sensing.

This identifies where

colder groundwater

and rainwater has been

entering the network

and where pipe repairs

or replacements may be

needed.

“The survey showed that

ingress and infiltration

makes up about 40 per cent

of the annual volume of

wastewater reaching the

Beach Rd treatment plant,”

he said.

“That’s much higher

than we would like,

and this work aims to

reduce the volume of

wastewater from Akaroa

and improve the quality

of treated wastewater

being discharged into the

harbour. It will also reduce

the size and cost of the new

disposal system, whichever

option is chosen.”

Rāpaki marks 150 years

RĀPAKI CHURCH celebrated

its 150th anniversary on

Saturday.

More than 200 people

gathered for a special service

to commemorate the historic

church, which opened in

1869.

Matua Douglas Couch, who

grew up in Rāpaki during the

1930s and 40s, said the church

was a central meeting point for

the community in those days.

“We used to go there when

the church bell rang. Sometimes

we were down on the beach and

wouldn’t hear the bell and if you

got home at dinner and hadn’t

been to church, you’d be in

trouble,” he said.

The small weatherboard

church, which can hold 80

people, has recently undergone a

significant restoration.

The church was closed

following the earthquakes and

the restoration work began last

year after funding was received.

The restoration included

repairs to the south sanctuary

wall as well as the replacement of

the rotten main window

with a replica of an earlier

window based on an old

photograph.

The steeple was rebuilt

The surrounding fence has

The restoration work was

to ensure the cultural heritage

“The fund may be used to

Call for less cruise ships

• By Louis Day

“WE WANT to see an end to

Akaroa being used as a tourist

delivery depot.”

Those are the words of Akaroa

Ratepayers and Residents

Association president Harry

Stronach during his submission

on the city council’s draft Annual

Plan last week.

Mr Stronach called for a

reduction in

cruise ship

numbers in

coming

seasons.

“Somewhere

in this building,

there might be a

Harry

Stronach

department with

a door that says

sensible planning

department,

well if there is there is nobody at

home,” he said to city councillors.

“The main street of Akaroa,

Rue Lavaud, is not wide enough

for two way traffic you have to

weave around the parked cars

and some days there are over 40

tourist buses trying to use it as a

highway.”

A survey conducted by the

association in March found that

69 per cent of respondents felt the

number of cruise ships should be

limited, with the average

number proposed being 40 per

year – less than half of the 92

ships, which stopped in Akaroa

during the 2018-19 season.

Mr Stronach was concerned

about the cruise ship schedule for

the coming season.

“Look at the plan for the next

Christmas and New Year period,

over that time normally the town

is full anyway. What is scheduled

for this coming year is an

additional 27,000 passengers over

that period.”

seasons.

“The community have had

problems when Akaroa is

break from his own 40m line to

Lincoln University’s 22m line.

The ball was then spun wide to

Crossdale, who burned past his

defender to score and level the

game 19-19.

Fullback Eiji Kaneda then held

his nerve to kick the conversion

and give Sumner a 21-19 lead.

With just 3min to play,

Sumner successfully held

possession, before winning a

scrum penalty on full-time to

take the win.

With five games in the first

phase of the competition

remaining, Sumner are still well

outside of top six contention. But

they will be looking for a strong

run before the competition is

split into a top and bottom six.

On Saturday, Sumner will

travel to Ilam Fields to play

bottom-of-the-table Canterbury

University at 2.45pm.

Small Mazda SUV has further appeal

WHEN MAZDA launched its

CX-3 crossover/sport utility

vehicle in New Zealand four years

ago, I was so smitten with it I

described it as being one of the

company’s finest vehicles, it was

certainly one of my best drives for

2015.

Four years down the track, not

a lot has changed, there’s now an

upgraded CX-3 and it still exudes

the feel and vigour that made

the first generation model so

memorable, only more so.

Like before, the CX-3 lands in

six grades with four-wheel-drive

options along the way. All share

the same naturally aspirated

2-litre engine, but there is now

the option of two high grade

models Limited and Takami,

the latter is a range of high

grade models that are filtering

all through the Mazda line-up,

and I can report from previous

experience with Takami grade

it is something that gives those

models special appeal.

All that aside, the CX-3 this

evaluation focuses on is a midspec

front-drive GSX and it lists

at $36,695. For the record, the

entry-level GLX sits at $31,995,

while the Takami tops the range

at $41,695.

Even in GSX form the CX-3

wants for little, it has all of

the ingredients that make you

feel comfortable, and there is

enough gadgetry to keep the

technophile happy. Bear in mind

that in this specification it also

gets an i-Activesense safety

upgrade which includes blind

spot monitoring, traffic sign

recognition, smart city brake

support reverse and radar cruise

control. Mazda’s safety suite of

technologies easily qualifies for

a five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment program rating.

While I consider the CX-3 to be

MAZDA CX-3: Two and four-wheel-drive options.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

a true SUV, it is small and its size

won’t appeal to everyone, it is a bit

tight in the rear seating area but

for me that’s never been an issue,

the car feels so right to drive, and

for a small family it will easily

suffice as it makes good use of its

compact proportions. There is

also a purposeful amount of rear

cargo space – according to Mazda

– 264-litres to 1174-litres.

What I like most about the

CX-3 is its normality. Everything

is traditional, there are no tricks

with the engine and the gearbox

is a torque converter automatic.

While it appears simple on the

surface, you also have to take

into account that the driveline

incorporates Mazda’s SkyActive

technology which promotes

economical fuel usage without

compromise.

This has been the direction

Mazda has largely focused on

as a car maker; it isn’t hugely

into hybrids or electric vehicles,

but it simply makes internal

combustion engines work with

amazing efficiency.

As a result, the CX-3 is rated

with a 6.3-litre per 100km

(45mpg) combined cycle fuel

usage figure and that is easily

achievable. Without trying,

the fuel usage reading on

the evaluation car’s digital

display was constantly listing

around 7l/100km (40mpg). At

100km/h the engine is relaxed

(2100rpm), sipping fuel at the

rate of just 4.5l/100km (63mpg)

instantaneously.

If you think this economy

comes at the expense of

performance you need not be

worried, Mazda claim power

outputs of 110kW and 195Nm

from the 1998cc engine.

The CX-3 is free-revving and

spirited, it’s lively to drive, and

because it isn’t carrying too much

weight (1297kg) it feels agile and

nimble, and will return a 9sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time.

Along with the solid response

from under the bonnet, the

CX-3 is a hoot when corners

arrive. It steers with beautiful feel

and feedback, it can be driven

enthusiastically such is its poise

and composure, all of the time the

suspension provides occupants

with a comfortable, controlled

• Price – Mazda CX-3 GSX,

$36,695

• Dimensions – Length,

4275mm; width, 1765mm;

height, 1535mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 110kW,

195Nm, six-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.3l/100km

ride as well as absorbing

the road undulations without

upsetting steering response, nor

body balance.

If you weigh up all of these

ingredients, the CX-3 is a lot

more than meets the eye. It is

built with all of the fun factor that

is Mazda’s ideology, and that is

why I rate it so highly as a driver’s

car, it is so involving.

It is also well appointed, and

given this is the CX-3’s second

makeover it wants for nothing

inside. GSX buyers have the

choice of a leatherette/cloth trim

or leather for an extra $1600.

Elsewhere there is keyless entry

and ignition, satellite navigation,

intuitive display screen readouts,

sport drive mode and my

favourite inclusion, the standard

fitment of a CD player, which is

great for us old dinosaurs who

haven’t fully adapted to the new

digital music technology.

I’ve written many times in

recent reviews about the quality

of product that is coming out of

Mazda factories, the upgraded

CX-3 would be very much a

preferable choice, and if I do get

the chance to buy a new car to

see me through my impending

retirement, then something out of

this Japanese stable will be right at

the forefront of any decision.

Tucked privately away behind a fence, there

is much on offer here. As you would expect

from a quality home like this, the indoor/

outdoor flow has been maximised to take

advantage of the spacious decks, entertaining

area and easy-care gardens.

With enough space to easily accommodate

the family, there is a clean and contemporary

living area plus a well-appointed kitchen with

ample scullery storage. Boasting four double

bedrooms with built in robes, the master suite

enjoys an ensuite with double shower to avoid

the morning rush! With every consideration

for comfort, the high spec double glazing,

hydronic under floor heating and extra thick

walls will keep you and your little ones toasty

warm throughout the colder months.

Of course living so near the sea, you

will probably have plenty of toys to store!

So whether it’s a home for your kayak,

surfboards or boat that you are looking for -

this is the place for you! With an extra large

double garage, plus a spacious workshop/

studio and ample off street parking this is an

outstandingly practical property.

As appealing as the home itself is, the

location is the grand slam! Just a minute or

two to walk to the beach & village, you can

stroll down for a surf in the morning, a coffee

in the afternoon and a beer in the evening

(or vice versa - who are we to judge?!). The

schools, parks and bustling village are just

some of the reasons that this is such a well

loved community.

Our vendors have loved this home but

it’s now time for them to work their magic

on another project, so this is a fantastic

opportunity to secure your family’s future.
