the challenge it is going to be,”

she said.

Peacock

dispute

escalates

after five

killed

www.apollopoweryoga.com

• By Louis Day

FIVE WILD peacocks have been

shot on a farm near Lyttelton as a

neighbourhood dispute escalates.

Brenchley Farm owner Sue

Stubenvoll said the peacocks were

killed after they wandered onto

her property. She said it was done

to stop them eating endangered

geckos and skinks on the farm.

The cull has shocked neighbour

Janelle Wills. She told Bay

Harbour News she needed more

time to relocate the peacocks

which gather at her property to

be fed.

In February, Ms Stubenvoll sent

a legal letter to Miss Wills, saying

she had the right to shoot the peacocks

under the Impounding Act.

She gave Miss Wills four weeks

notice of what would happen if

they came onto her property.

Miss Wills said the shootings

were “inhumane.”

“There is no other word for it. It

is affecting all of my family,” she

said.

YOU WOULDN’T want to be a peacock

strutting about in the hills above Lyttelton

at the moment.

That’s because if you stray onto Sue

Stubenvoll’s farm you’re likely to get

shot (see page 1). Stubenvoll has followed

through on her threat to shoot wild peacocks which stray onto

her property.

That has upset neighbour Janelle Wills, who the peacocks have

been heading to for a feed.

Stubenvoll says the peacocks are also interested in snacking on

endangered skinks and geckos she says are on her farm. And that

is the justification for getting the gun out.

Wills has been relocating the peacocks and wanted more time.

She is justifiably angry. I suspect others will be too.

And Stubenvoll’s plan to eat the peacocks? Interesting.

Support for seaplane takes off

• By Louis Day

NOT EVERYONE in Diamond

Harbour is against a plan to

fly seaplanes into Lyttelton

Harbour.

Resident Jane Davison says the

seaplanes will provide a boost to

the economy.

“I think the harbour should

be welcoming

to commercial

business

opportunity

where it can. We

don’t want to

go backwards,

Jane

Davison

Richard

Suggate

we want to go

forwards,” she said.

“I would have

thought that there

is potential to

provide locals with

job opportunities,

and if people come

to the harbour

to do a seaplane

flight, who is to

say they won’t

stop in at a bakery

and buy a doughnut or a coffee

somewhere?”

In last week’s Bay Harbour

News, Diamond Harbour

Community Association

chairman Richard Suggate said

the group made a submission to

the Civil Aviation Authority in

opposition to Rangiora-based

company Peninsula Air Ltd’s

plan to construct a waterdrome

in the harbour.

The proposed 1km long

runway would be located

between Rapaki and Quail

Island and provide seaplanes

with an area to take off and land.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

SCENIC: A company’s bid to emulate the Sydney seaplane

experience in Lyttelton has received a mixed response from

residents.

It would also take people on

scenic tours of the peninsula.

“We are concerned about the

effects on other users of the

harbour, such as waka ama,

kayaks, swimmers, yachts,

motorboats, the list goes on,” Mr

Suggate said.

Peninsula Air Ltd directors

Mark Christensen and Grant

Edmundson did not return Bay

Harbour News’ phone calls.

Mrs Davison said the

association’s view does not

represent the entire community.

She said the majority of people

she has spoken to in Diamond

Harbour are in favour of the

plan.

“The community association

has about 100 members and

about 20 people turned up to

their AGM. They do some good

work but I think it is wrong

to assume that number of

membership could represent a

community of over 1000 people,”

she said.

Mr Suggate said the

association does not claim to

represent the entire community.

“There are always a range of

opinions about any subject – I

was expressing the views of the

association, not the community,”

he said.

Public submissions close at

the end of the month and can

be emailed to aerodromes@caa.

Diamond Harbour firefighter fifth up tower

• By Louis Day

FIREFIGHTERS from across the

Bay Harbour News area raced

up the Sky Tower’s 1103 steps on

Saturday to raise money for those

with leukaemia and blood cancer.

The effort was part of the 15th

annual Firefighter Sky Tower

Stair Challenge where participants

heaved 25kg of gear up 52

flights of stairs.

Diamond Harbour Volunteer

Fire Brigade member Mark

Patterson was the fastest

volunteer up the tower with a

time of 10min 6sec and was fifth

overall out of more than 1000

firefighters.

“I was pretty chuffed actually,

because I had been a bit crook

building up to it. I was pretty

nervous that I was not going to do

that well so I am really stoked to

get the time I did,” he said.

Three firefighters from the

Diamond Harbour brigade raised

$3500. In total, the Auckland

event raised $1 million.

The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire

Brigade raised $15,000 for the

cause.

Lyttelton chief Mark Buckley,

who was part of the support crew,

was immensely proud of the

effort shown from his team.

“It was really good to see, I

have got a great deal of respect for

them and their enthusiasm was

just fantastic,” he said.

Six firefighters from the Governors

Bay volunteer brigade

managed to raise $11,000.

Akaroa Volunteer Fire Brigade

member Jeroen Hartman also

raised $1768.

Singer wants to transition into acting

ROCK ON: Catherine Hay in

costume for We Will Rock You.

•From page 1

“I am feeling like I am ready

for a new challenge though, and

hoping to soak up whatever they

throw at me over there.”

Hay usually sticks to musical

theatre but is hoping to branch

out during the course.

“I am doing this acting

course and throwing myself in

the deep end without the security

of being able to hide behind a

song.”

She has participated in a

number of professional musical

productions, including a leading

role in We Will Rock You.

“It was my first kind of lead

role in a bigger company, it was

at the Isaac Theatre Royal, two

and a half weeks of shows, a

1200-seat audience, doing seven

shows a week and it was rock

music so it was very vocally

demanding and then trying to

balance a day job with that was a

challenge.”

Hay is currently balancing

her time as an organisational

psychology consultant, singing

teacher and aspiring actor.

She said she would sometimes

spend 30 to 35 hours a week in

rehearsals while balancing her

other commitments.

She is hoping the 10-week

acting course will help her transition

into acting full-time.

“My goal is to become

competitive in auditioning for

professional roles throughout

New Zealand and possibly even

going over to London for a little

bit.”

Five wild peacocks shot

•From page 1

Miss Wills said 10 peacocks

had been relocated with the help

of Serendipity Animal Rescue.

But others hadn’t been because

they would flee when trying to be

captured.

More time was needed to catch

the peacocks, she said.

Department of Conservation

senior biodiversity ranger Anita

Spencer said there were rare

geckos and skinks in the area.

“DOC hasn’t carried out any

formal surveys to confirm there

are lizards on the farm, but we

understand a herpetologist has

visited the property and identified

the lizards,” she said.

However, Ms Spencer said

chickens posed the same threat to

geckos and skinks that peacocks

did, which Ms Stubenvoll keeps

on her farm.

Ms Stubenvoll said her chickens

were not eating the geckos

and skinks.

“You can tell from the droppings

of a chicken what it has

been eating, if it has been eating

something with blood in it the

droppings go black. Guess what

the colour of the peacock droppings

are? Black! The chickens’ is

a wispy white.”

Ms Stubenvoll also told Bay

Harbour News she plans to eat

the peacocks, and more will be

culled.

“It would be an awful waste to

not eat them,” she said.

Miss Wills said she was “disgusted”

by the plan to eat the

peacocks.

Sharp perspex shards

left on toddler swing

• By Louis Day

VANDALS left a

sinister calling card at

the Diamond Harbour

Playcentre – sharp perspex

on a toddler swing.

Police said the act could

have caused injury.

“A mindless and

dangerous act that could

cause serious harm to

babies,” said Sergeant

Franco Lovrich.

Diamond Harbour

Playcentre president Anna

Blundell

found the

perspex

window

of the

boat in its

had been

kicked in

on Monday

last week, with shards

scattered all over the

ground.

She then saw someone

had placed the shards on

the swing with the sharp

edges facing upwards.

Miss Blundell cut her hand

removing the shards from

the swing.

described the act as

mindless and dangerous.

“We will certainly be

following up on this with

the view to potentially

fingerprinting items at the

scene, as well as looking

at their security measures

and providing advice to

them where necessary,”

he said. “We also ask the

public for any information

and that any suspicious

behaviour is reported to

us.”

Miss Blundell, who has

three children of her own

attending the playcentre,

was disgusted by the

incident. “It makes me

very angry that someone

would intentionally hurt

our children, the plastic

was in the baby toddler

swings that is for under

two-year-olds. It just

makes me angry that they

think it is funny to do

that,” she said.

Miss Blundell said

vandalism was something

the playcentre used to

experience quite regularly

before security cameras

were put in six months

ago.

Dancer stepping up to world stage

• By Louis Day

SAM Richardson wants

to become one of the best

dancers in the world. Now,

the 19-year-old from Mt

Pleasant has the chance to

get there.

He is one of three

performer from Team

Cozy crew, which

has qualified for the

World Hip Hop Dance

Championship in the

United States in August.

Richardson is set to

dance alongside Caleb

Gopal, 18, and Chloe

Wright, 15, in Phoenix.

They finished second in

the mini-crew category

at the Hip Hop New

Zealand Championship

in Auckland last month

and were one of just three

teams from the category

to qualify for the world

champs.

Richardson balances

full-time work as a

barber with weekly dance

practices.

“I just dance as soon as

I finish work, it’s pretty

busy, but I enjoy both of

them so it’s no stress,” he

said.

The crew will have to

showcase three styles of

hip-hop dancing at the

world champs. Richardson

feels confident ahead of

the competition.

“I think we can do

it, we have just got that

chemistry. It would mean

everything if we got it.”

The styles include

breakdancing, house and

new school swag.

The team will pay

for some of the trip

themselves, but are

looking for donations and

sponsorship.

Ranulph Fiennes – Mad, Bad and

Dangerous to Know

Ranulph Fiennes has travelled to the most dangerous and

inaccessible places on earth, almost died countless times, lost

nearly half his fingers to frostbite, raised millions of pounds for

charity and been awarded a polar medal and an OBE. He has

been an elite soldier, an athlete, a mountaineer, an explorer, a

bestselling author and nearly replaced Sean Connery as James

Bond.

In his autobiography he describes how he led expeditions all over

the world and became the first person to travel to both poles on

land. He tells of how he discovered the lost city of Ubar in Oman

and attempted to walk solo and unsupported to the North Pole - the expedition that cost him

several fingers, and very nearly his life.

His most recent challenge was scaling the north face of the Eiger, one of the most awesome

mountaineering challenges in the world. Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes OBE, 3rd

Baronet, looks back on a life lived at the very limits of human endeavour.

See you in the Piazza

By Frances Mayes

The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marcothese

are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks

only scratch the surface of this magical country’s offerings. In

See You in the Piazza, Frances Mayes introduces us to the Italy

only the locals know, as she and her husband, Ed, eat and drink

their way through fifteen regions - from Friuli to Sardinia. Along

the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found

in traditional guidebooks. Frances conjures the enchantment of

the backstreets, the hubbub of the markets, the dreamlike wonder

of that space between lunch and dinner when a city cracks open

to those who would wander or when a mind is drawn into the

pages of a delicious book - and discloses to us the secrets that only someone who is on

intimate terms with a place could find.

The Baker’s Companion

By Allyson Gofton

A truly beautiful baking book, chock full of recipes and the

biscuits, pies, tarts, slices and brownies, quick bakes, puddings,

pavlovas and meringues, bread and yeast baking, with how-tos

and hints and tips throughout.

Want to know why your cakes are always too heavy? Why the

From Scratch

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home

By Tembi Locke

A poignant and transporting cross-cultural love story set against

the lush backdrop of the Sicilian countryside, where one woman

discovers the healing powers of food, family, and unexpected

grace in her darkest hour. It was love at first sight when Tembi

met professional chef, Saro, on a street in Florence. There was

just one problem: Saro’s traditional Sicilian family did not approve

of him marrying a black American woman, an actress no less.

However, the couple, heartbroken but undeterred, forges on. They

build a happy life in Los Angeles, with fulfilling careers, deep

friendships and the love of their lives: a baby girl they adopt at

birth. Eventually, they reconcile with Saro’s family just as he faces a formidable cancer that

will consume all their dreams. From Scratch chronicles three summers Tembi spends in

Sicily with her daughter, Zoela, as she begins to piece together a life without her husband in

his tiny hometown hamlet of farmers. Where once Tembi was estranged from Saro’s family

and his origins, now she finds solace and nourishment—literally and spiritually—at her

mother in law’s table. In the Sicilian countryside, she discovers the healing gifts of simple

fresh food, the embrace of a close knit community, and timeless traditions and wisdom that

light a path forward. All along the way she reflects on her and Saro’s incredible romance—an

indelible love story that leaps off the pages.

“LET’S GET the bugger over

there and see what can happen.”

That was the plan behind

a fundraising effort that has

gone into getting Lytteltonbased

performer Tom Trevella

to England to work under

established actor and director

Adrian Rawlins.

At the end of the month, the

long-standing Lyttelton Arts

Factory actor will fly to the town

of Beverley, near Hull, to star in

a contemporary murder mystery

play named Chippy, which will

premiere at the East Riding

Theatre.

He will be working under the

direction of Rawlins, who is best

known for his role of James Potter

in the Harry Potter films and

Arthur Kidd in the 1989 horror

film The Woman in Black.

More than $3500 was raised

at a quiz night on Saturday held

at the theatre company to help

cover Trevella’s travel costs –

including airfares, train tickets,

insurance and visas.

Trevella said it was really

“humbling” to see the Lyttelton

community turn out to support

his trip overseas and was looking

forward to being able to give

back next year.

Chippy is earmarked to be

performed in the LAF next

year.

“It is a chance for me to broaden

my horizon and get to work

in a different environment,”

Trevella said.

Trevella described Rawlins

as an “actor’s director” and was

most looking forward to taking

advantage of his knowledge and

experience.

“Just working with a professional,

he has been working in

the industry for so many years

He is going to have a lot to pass

on,” Trevella said.

The opportunity for Trevella

to travel overseas is born out

of the strong professional relationship

between LAF

creative director Mike Friend

and Rawlins.

The relationship between the

two theatre companies has led

to the formation of an artist

Ullyart also returned to LAF

The show will see Trevella

Trevella said the beauty of having

worked with Ullyart before is

together.

As well as heading to England,

he has numerous projects on

Residents pleased with removal of Balmoral Hill fence

• By Louis Day

THE FENCE at the bottom

of Balmoral Hill has been

removed.

The fence, which was put there

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, was removed on

Tuesday after the city council

found it was no longer needed.

Over the last 18 months the

city council has been undertaking

a review and clean-up of the

fences remaining around the

city post-earthquake.

“There was a delay in removing

the fence as there was a

redundant drain that had to

be made safe. As this has happened,

and other maintenance

was undertaken

(trimming of vegetation),

the fence has been removed,’’

said city council

delivery transport and

planning manager Lynette

Ellis.

Redcliffs Residents

Association chairwoman

Christine Toner was delighted

to see the fence removed.

“It is just fantastic, we are just

absolutely thrilled about it,” she

said.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham thought the

removal of the fence

would enhance the entrance

into the village.

“This is a such

stunning location

with beautiful cliffs

and coastal areas

through which

thousands of people

Christine transit daily. The

Toner

removal of the fence

and the trimming of the

vegetation is really positive

and it is another box ticked

in the return to normality for

residents on this side of town,”

$150k boost

for harbour

restoration

A PLAN to restore the condition

of Lyttelton Harbour has received

a $150,000 boost.

Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour

partnership chairwoman Yvette

Couch-Lewis, of Ngāti Wheke,

said the funding, which comes

from the Ministry for the

Environment, will go towards

consultation with farmers and

implementing some of the

projects which come out of the

consultation.

“People who live in the harbour

basin all care deeply about the

land and the harbour. We’ll be

working with the local farmers

and landowners to re-establish

wetlands, undertake stream

plantings and take other steps

that will reduce the sediments and

contaminants that are going in

the harbour.”

The partnership consists of

Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi

Tahu, Environment Canterbury,

the city council and Lyttelton Port

Company, with input from the

community.

Getting away for Mother’s Day

JUST IN CASE you didn’t read last

week’s column, we all got away for a

short family vacation/Mother’s Day

escape to Greymouth at the end of

last week.

Vittoria also only naps once a day

now. It’s a tough transition for me.

Whatever, don’t judge me parents of

older kids.

Pro-tip; a long car ride across the

Southern Alps can give the illusion

of a much longer nap time. As long

as they can’t ask: “Are we there yet?”

We managed to get away for

our trip a mere 40min after our

scheduled departure time.

Vittoria went straight

into her nap as we left the city,

but with a couple of stops

through the mountains

(including the wonderful Otira

Stagecoach Hotel) the total trip

took longer than it would have on

the bus.

I actually enjoyed that though, it

felt more like an old-school Kiwi

whānau getaway. We even stayed in

a holiday park and had a pub meal

on the first night.

Love it.

We managed to get in a fair

amount of sightseeing and

relaxation in a couple of days, with

Friday’s perfect weather making a

great accompaniment to the views

at Punakaiki.

I even managed to sneak in a tour

at the Monteith’s Brewery. Just me

& Matt

though, can you imagine taking a

toddler to a brewery?

For Vittoria, the best part

was quite probably the

playground at the holiday

park. Unfortunately, it started

pouring down with rain not long

after we arrived so she only got to

play on it for like five minutes on

day one.

You should have seen how

heartbroken she was when I took

her back to the room.

There were “everyone-thinks-

I’m-a-bad-parent” level crying and

screaming.

The next day, her reaction

when she saw that it was still there

and able to be played on

was awesome. She actually said

“wow.”

She’s not even talking yet but the

playground managed to coax out

what could be considered an actual

recognisable word.

Damn, that’s a good playground.

To finish off our trip we took

even longer to come home on

Saturday, adding in more stops.

and support businesses in your community

Portray your love story, your way

Planning a wedding is a huge project. There is so much to do - choosing a location and

venue, invitations, the dress, music, cake, catering, the guest list, just to name a few

tasks. But top of your list should be finding the right celebrant to officiate the ceremony.

Meet Robyn O’Brien.

THESE days a majority of NZ weddings are

conducted by independent wedding celebrants.

They offer an alternative to the traditional church or

registry office ceremonies giving couples flexibility

and choice for their service.

Robyn is a locally based NZ registered Marriage

Celebrant and she’d love to help you organise your

special day.

“The most important day in your life is the time

where, in front of family and friends, you declare your

love to each other for the rest of your life,” said Robyn.

I’m 100% committed to guiding you through

the entire ceremony process, organising the legal

requirements, rehearsing and conducting the

ceremony ensuring that your special day runs

perfectly. It’s so important that your ceremony

tells your love story, reflects your personalities and

includes your ideas.

Whether you’re planning something traditional,

casual, themed or a little bit different, I can work

with you to achieve your ultimate ceremony with

the least amount of stress. You may want to include

readings, poems, family traditions, children, even

animals - nothing is impossible! I’m confident at

public speaking and I love weddings. Having attended

a ceremony writing course I know how important it is

to portray your love story your way.

As well as officiating your occasion, Robyn can

provide her own PA system and is also a calligraphist,

so is able to offer a calligraphy service for invitations

and place name tags.

Ceremonies are not limited to marriages. Robyn

also performs name giving, renewal of vows,

anniversaries, blessings, commemorations, pets and

animals, and elopements.

Here’s what happy couple Rebecca & Louis said:

Thank you Robyn for helping us create a beautiful

wedding ceremony that was special and unique for us

as a couple. We really appreciate the work you put in to

make the ceremony run smoothly, particularly since our

vows were multilingual. With your help. we could enjoy

a wedding ceremony which was truly our own, and

one in which we could honour our respective cultural

background.

To ensure you find the right celebrant, Robyn offers

a no obligation first meeting so you can decide if she

is the right celebrant for you.

mitre 10 mega ferrymead

lend a helping hand

On tuesday 7th of May, the Mitre10 Mega Ferrymead team lent a

helping hand to the Mt Pleasant community centre.

After our original date was postponed due to poor

weather, opening the curtains a week later to see

a drizzly overcast day wasn’t all that appealing for

the Mitre10 Mega Ferrymead Helping Hands team.

However, with forecasts clearing the decision was made

to chuck on the ‘wet weathers’ and get stuck into a bit

of DIY for the local Mount Pleasant Community Centre.

Three key projects were on the menu for the day. The

first was building five raised Macrocarpa garden beds

on the empty lawn beside the community centre.

Varying in sizes, the team quickly notched together a

smorgasbord of healthy beds the

local community can now grow,

share and enjoy seasoned vegetables

all year round.

The second project included clearing,

levelling and paving a run-down BBQ

pit. Deciding on a paving pattern

was a hot debate between teams but

after drawing straws a design was finally agreed upon.

A big thank you to the team at Firth Industries, who

provided all the pavers for the job.

Although it wasn’t needed on the day our last task

included erecting a shade sail to complete the BBQ

space. The team at Mitre 10 Mega Ferrymead were

proud of their efforts on the day and wish to thank

the friendly locals who gave up their time to get these

projects over the line. We trust the Mount Pleasant

Community will enjoy their new and improved outdoor

space.

"The Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Gardens will

provide a place for locals to meet and share their

gardening expertise. It will also be used by the children

was a war memorial, and the present hall is a memorial

to the 2011 earthquakes.

TIDY KIWI: Ferrymead Rotary Club member Ingrid Robertson

transports rubbish to the pick-up point during the Mother of All

Clean Ups.

THE REMOVAL of remnant

piles at Naval Point has been

delayed.

The 52 concrete piles –

originally from the planned

Magazine Bay marina, which

was devastated by a storm in

2000 – were set to be removed

during April but will now

be removed at the end of the

month.

The delay comes after

equipment required for the

removal project was needed on

the West Coast to help with the

clean-up following the flooding

in March.

The work will now begin in

the final week of this month and

is expected to take four weeks,

depending on sea and weather

conditions.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said it was

important for the equipment to

have been diverted to help on

the West Coast.

“Although this has caused a

small delay, we are happy the

pile removal will start at the end

of the month, improving the

safety of the popular recreational

spot for the different people and

groups that use the bay for water

activities.”

The piles will become part of

the Lyttelton Port Company’s

reclamation work, saving on

disposal costs.

A wider piece of work is being

carried out by the city council to

develop Naval Point, which will

involve public consultation later

this year.

Cleaning up our rivers

and cooking meals

Ferrymead

Rotary Club

member

Barbara Crooks

writes about

how the charity

has been giving

back to the

community

FERRYMEAD Rotarians have

been hands-on in the community

over the past few weeks.

They got their hands dirty

clearing rubbish from the

McCormacks Bay causeway,

then made sure those hands were

clean as they scrubbed up a few

days later to cook an evening

meal at Ronald McDonald

House.

Tanya Jenkins, a Ferrymead

Rotary member and Mother

of All Clean Ups co-ordinator,

identified some encouraging

trends. There were more helpers

than last year, and there was

less rubbish. Even so, the 835

volunteers from 42 groups

gathered 3.6 tonnes (588 bags)

and 61 car tyres.

This was the clean-up’s seventh

year. It encompassed the Avon

and Heathcote rivers, as well

as the estuary. It was organised

by the Avon-Heathcote Estuary

Ihutai Trust, the Avon River

and Heathcote River networks,

with City Care collecting and

disposing of the bags.

A few days later, Ferrymead

Rotarians cooked dinner for

out-of-town families staying at

Ronald McDonald House while

their children receive treatment

at Christchurch Hospital. The

facility caters for children

under-21 who have to come

to Christchurch for long-term

treatment.

Ferrymead Rotary has joined a

growing number of organisations

and businesses on the cooking

roster. There is no upper or lower

limit – some do it once a year,

others much more regularly.

This was Ferrymead’s second

time, and the crew kept it simple

Fire rages, homes at risk

– chicken legs, roast vegetables,

coleslaw and apple pie for 45 or

so. It might not have been cordon

bleu, but it got a big tick from

one Nelson 12-year-old: “That

was a lot better than the hospital

meals,” she said.

The families – some of whom

have to stay in Christchurch for

months because the children

need care not available in their

home towns – were unanimous

in their appreciation of the

difference it makes not having

to organise and cook after a long

day at the hospital.

And it was a salutary

experience for the ‘chefs’ as they

sat down to share their meal with

youngsters and parents. They felt

they had done something that

was very worthwhile and much

appreciated, and they learnt a lot

from hearing the families’ stories.

Sumner’s club day comeback

SPORT

• By Gordon Findlater

CLUB DAY was celebrated

in style at St Leonards Square

when Sumner’s premier side

overturned a 17-point deficit

to beat Sydenham 28-22 on

Saturday.

Sumner found themselves

in a tricky situation after just

20min. A try

to winger

Charles

Oswald was

all the they

had on the

board while

Sydenham

ran rampant

to take a 5-22

Martin

Dodgson

lead.

“We got

ourselves into

a hole playing some horrible

rugby. It was reminiscent of

the first five rounds . . . we were

absolutely gone,” said coach

Martin Dodgson.

However, Sumner didn’t

replicate the trend that saw them

start the season with five straight

losses. A try to Mathew Tuala

and a penalty try following a

high shot on Oswald before the

end of the half saw them turn the

tide to trail 21-22 at the break.

“It shows how far the team

has come, especially the leaders.

The leaders were really calm and

came up with some really clear

solutions and then the boys went

to work,” Dodgson said.

As the home crowd came

alive, Sumner dominated the

second half. Their set piece and

defence came to the fore, which

resulted in Sydenham being kept

scoreless – the first time Sumner

hadn’t conceded points in a half

this year. A converted try from

halfback Hayden O’Donnell

proved to be the difference.

“That second half was really

reminiscent of the second half

against Lincoln University. We

forced them into a lot of errors,

which caused a lot of set piece

which we were dominating,” said

Dodgson.

The win was Sumner’s third

on the trot following results

against Lincoln University and

Canterbury University. They

still have a mathematical chance

of sneaking into the top six for

the second half of the season.

However, they will need other

results to go their way in the final

three rounds of the competition’s

Bays fight to achieve their SFL goal

FERRYMEAD Bays are entering

do or die territory in their bid to

qualify for the Southern Football

League.

Bays are two points off a spot

in the Mainland Premier League

top five after a 0-2 away loss to

Nelson Suburbs at the weekend.

The top five teams at the

conclusion of the MPL will

qualify for this year’s SFL.

With five rounds remaining

in the MPL, Saturday’s match

against Western AFC at

Ferrymead Park will be crucial

in their bid to make the cut for

the SFL.

When Bays and Western met

on April 6, Western took the

honours 1-2 at Walter Park.

Over the weekend, keeper

Adam Highfield ensured Bays

went into the break 0-0 in

Nelson. He did well to shut out

Nelson Suburbs in the second

half. However, with just 13min to

play, Nelson Suburbs broke the

deadlock through Ben Wright.

Six minutes later Cameron

Gordon found the back of the net

from a Ryan Stewart corner to

double the lead.

Bays will also play in the

second round of the Chatham

Cup after a 2-1 win over Halswell

United.

They will meet FC Twenty 11

on Queen’s Birthday for a place

in the next round.

SUCCESS: (Clockwise) – Halfback Hayden O’Donnell scored

Sumner’s match-winning try against Sydenham. Harry Hawkes

and Liam Taylor picked up awards after the Sumner Kingfish’s

70-30 win over Halswell-Wigram on club day. The Sumner

Sharks started club day early with a 32-5 win at Christchurch

Park on Friday night.

first phase. Other club day

results saw the Sumner Sharks

start their celebration early in the

classics division with a 32-5 win

over the Christchurch Canardly

Heroes at Christchurch Park

on Friday night. Meanwhile,

Sumner’s reserve side went down

5-63 to Sydenham’s reserves at St

Leonards Square.

Sumner and Suburbs’

combined under-16 girls team

also played at St Leonards

on Saturday, going down to

Prebbleton 22-50.

But it was a club day to

remember for Sumner’s junior

teams. Their 12 junior sides

all played at McCormacks Bay

and enjoyed huge success. The

only loss of the day came in

an all-Sumner affair, meaning

all opposition sides were left

winless.

On Saturday, Sumner’s

premier side will face Burnside,

which are in ninth spot, tied

with Sumner on 17 points. The

match at Burnside Park kicks off

at 2.45pm.

Metro premier standings:

Christchurch 33pts, 1; Lincoln

University 33pts, 2; Marist

Albion 31pts, 3; HSOB 27pts,

Lexus UX – gateway into the luxury brand

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I NEVER would have picked the

change of direction that Lexus has

travelled in the last few years.

The company came onto the

global market in 1989 with a

large sedan and since then sport

sedans, coupes and convertibles,

along with a luxury four-wheeldrive

vehicle, have accounted for

a large part of its sales.

However, in recent times, to

capitalise on the global demand

for sport utility vehicles, Lexus

has changed direction slightly,

there are a large number of SUVs

in the company’s line-up, and it is

ever-increasing.

Just recently, a compact SUV

has been launched by Lexus.

Badged simply UX, it sits beneath

the small-to-medium NX and

RX. If you think of Toyota RAV4

size, then the UX is about that

stature, however, it gets a heap of

upmarket kit that clearly has it

sitting in the luxury car category.

The UX lands here in force,

there are seven front-wheel-drive

and all-wheel-drive variants, all

are 2-litre powered, yet there is

the option of hybrid technology.

From what I’m picking up from

Lexus New Zealand and at local

dealer level, the hybrid is the

car to beat and it is the subject

of this evaluation , an F-Sport

Limited to be exact. It sits at

$72,900.

Incidentally, the UX hits the

showroom floors at $59,900 for

a 2-litre petrol, while a rangetopping

4WD Limited hybrid sits

at $75,900.

I’ve driven a lot of hybrids out

of the Lexus and Toyota stables

recently, and I agree, the UX in

hybrid form takes a lot of beating.

For one the hybrid system has

become what I would call normal.

Whereas once hybrids took a little

understanding and a technique

to drive them effectively, that

has all changed. Today’s hybrid

works much like any other petrolpowered

car, it feels just so right,

and in Lexus form the refinement

within the driveline mechanicals

makes it hard to detect any

transfer of power between electric

delivery and when the petrol

engine kicks in.

Of course, there are many

other benefits other than the

sophistication, the UX hybrid is

rated with a 4.5-litre per 100km

(63mpg) combined cycle fuel

usage rating. That claim sits

well with the readout on the

evaluation car, it was showing

around 7l/100km (40mpg) when

I took it back to the dealership.

The UX is also quick, that’s the

LEXUS UX F-SPORT: Two-litre engine with or without hybrid

option.

benefit of electric delivery. It will

scamper to 100km/h in 8.6sec,

and will complete an overtake

manoeuvre in 5sec. The latter

is attributed to the solid midrange

delivery between electric

and petrol, the UX has dynamic

performance, Lexus claiming

power outputs of 135kW and

188Nm.

Not only is the UX a spirited

drive, it also handles with aplomb.

I guess it doesn’t wear a F-Sport

badge for nothing, the UX has

accurate corner turn-in and

definite steering feel.

This is something Lexus does

so well, the steering is involving

and communicative. Riding on

beautiful Bridgestone Turanza

tyres (225/50 x 18in), there is a lot

of rubber in contact with the road

and it shows, grip levels are high

even without the four-wheeldrive

option.

There is little sensation power

is coming out the front wheels

only, the UX is balanced and

controlled and, of course, you

get an amazingly compliant ride,

traditional with all Lexus models.

That luxury feel doesn’t end

there, the cockpit and cabin area

is plush, the way Lexus create

interiors is a real credit. The test

car was trimmed with white

leather, yet there are contrasting

elements which work effectively

to tone down the overpowering

effect of light.

There are also the ingredients

which luxury car owners would

expect even from an SUV. The

UX is chock full of the latest

technology for safety, comfort

and convenience, and its styling

and design inside and out is eyecatching

and desirable. All of the

ingredients are in place to make

the UX very much a part of the

• Price – Lexus UX 250h

F-Sport, $72,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4495mm; width, 1840mm;

height, 1520mm

continuously variable

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.4sec

• Fuel usage – 4.5l/100km

Lexus family.

Lexus claim the UX is the

gateway model into the brand. I

guess that’s a good call, however,

the company will have to market

that hard, Toyota have just

launched an amazing new RAV4,

and some models have similar

drivelines to the UX. While it’s nice

to step up into Lexus luxury, some

buyers may well be happy with the

cheaper option.

Wherever the UX goes in

terms of sales, it is just part of

a spectacular range of Lexus

models.

Personally, I’d still be sticking

to one of the sport sedans or

coupes from the stable, but for

those who do need or want an

SUV, the UX will certainly be

a purchase which will keep the

buyer happy for many years, and

it will definitely put a smile on

their face every time they see

the savings hybrids offer when it

comes to fill-up time at the local

service station.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”
