Pug design gives artwork some bite

CLEVER: Mt Pleasant’s Asheley Elizabeth is the creator of a colourful bubble wrap mosaic artwork recently installed at The

Hub Hornby.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EIGHTEEN thousand plastic

bubbles and 42-litres of water

bursting with food colouring

has gone into Mt Pleasant

resident Asheley Elizabeth’s art.

A large 3m x 3m canvas

featuring a colourful pug is now

on display at The Hub Hornby.

Elizabeth, who designed the

work, said the idea behind the

bubble wrap mosaic was to engage

the public about something

unique and get people thinking

about art in different ways.

Crime

camera

funding is

expected

to be

declined

• By Jess Gibson

A DECISION on the funding of

Sumner’s crime cameras will be

made today.

But the outcome is likely to

disappoint residents.

The city council has recommended

that the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board declines all funding towards

cameras which would help

to prevent crime in Sumner.

The amount requested by the

Sumner Community Residents’

Association and Safer Sumner

was $16,187.

The community board can

vote against the recommendation

to decline the funds but it

will not mean the money will be

granted.

Based on the Discretionary

Response Fund criteria, the

application was not eligible for

funding and was considered

of low significance in the city

council’s Significance and

Engagement Policy.

DON’T CALL me a grump but ratepayers

will understandably probably be a bit

miffed by the chance city councillors and

community board members will soon be

able to get reimbursed for childcare (see

page 7). They will vote before September on whether to okay a

new policy, which will allow them to have childcare paid for up

to $6000 a year when they attend meetings and other council

business and events.

Yes, that’s correct – they will vote on this themselves. So when

I say chance, I suspect it will be a very high chance ratepayers

will soon be forking out.

The policy is aimed at encouraging more people to stand for

local politics.

But should ratepayers be paying for their childcare?

SAFETY: A stricken 35ft yacht with three passengers was towed from south of Motunau to Lyttelton by the Sumner Lifeboat

on Saturday night.

Marathon rescue for Sumner Lifeboat

• By Jess Gibson

SUMNER LIFEBOAT coxswain

Blair Quane has called a 10-hour

night mission south of Motunau

his “hardest rescue in 17 years.”

Sumner Lifeboat and North

Canterbury Coastguard crews

rescued three yacht passengers

on Saturday who had set out

from Picton.

The 35ft yacht had lost all

power in difficult conditions and

two rescue vessels were deployed

from Kaiapoi and Sumner at

about 5pm.

launched first.

It was able to locate

the yacht while the

Blue Arrow Rescue,

was on its way.

Blue Arrow Rescue was the

larger vessel, so it towed the

yacht to Lyttelton with its

passengers in the choppy 2m

swell.

Twelve Sumner crew were

Blair Quane

involved over 10 hours,

with six on the boat, two

relief and four shore crew

members.

“Our crew were quite

seasick with the conditions.

I’ve got crew who are sailors

which have travelled from

Auckland to Christchurch

and have never been seasick. It

just shows how rough it was,”

Mr Quane said.

He skippered Blue Arrow

Rescue on the mission.

“It was rough in all directions.

If you can imagine 10 hours in

a roller coaster, I’d like to think

most people would be puking

their guts out. I was the only

one who wasn’t, but they call me

steel guts.”

When Blue Arrow Rescue and

the yacht arrived at Lyttelton,

they were met by Sumner

Lifeboat shore crew, a St John

ambulance and a supply of

sandwiches and coffee.

Sumner Lifeboat crew

member Howard Nicholls said

the people on the yacht were

checked out by St John staff and

“all were fine but tired.”

NEW TOILETS BY SUMMER

Akaroa’s new $630,000 public

toilets are set to be built before the

summer visitor season starts. The

facility aims to meet the influx of

cruise ship passengers which put

pressure on Akaroa’s ageing toilet

block on Rue Jolie. These old toilets

behind the Akaroa Service Centre

will be demolished next month to

make way for the new 13m long

prefabricated block of eight toilets.

PARKING ON BUS STOPS

Two bus stops in Heathcote Valley

may be marked with new paint

to prevent vehicles parking over

them. The Linwood-Central-

changing the position of the stops.

Deputations will

be made to

community board

•From page 1

The report states that the level

of significance was determined

by the number of people affected

or with an interest.

City council staff were unable

to comment.

Chief executive of security

company October Protection

and Sumner resident Matt Wood

and Safer Sumner’s Kath Preston

said they will be making separate

deputations at today’s board

meeting.

Mr Wood was ready to supply

Safer Sumner with security

cameras in 2017 after members

raised $4000.

However, the cost of the

cameras jumped to $20,000 after

police requested the cameras be

aligned with their

system, which led

to Safer Sumner

approaching the

community board

for funding in

December.

Darrell

Latham

“It’s all very well

to have people

slam the door

in your face but they’ve got to

be able to slam one door while

leaving some other doors open.

That’s what we are asking for

really,” Mr Wood said.

“It’s the usual red tape you

have to go through,” he said.

“We don’t actually need the ridiculous

amount that the police

and council have been saying.

I’ll be exploring other avenues

and options, we do have some

but more will become apparent

INITIATIVE: The Sumner

Community Residents’

Association and Safer

Sumner requested $16,187

of funding from the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board towards

crime cameras. ​

[at today’s meeting].”

Community board member

Darrell Latham said he is disappointed

about the recommendation.

“The community deserve a

full explanation as to how this

staff proposal to decline funding

has evolved. Given the recommendation

to decline funding

I would like to think that the

board can find other ways to

support this worthy community

initiative,’’ Mr Latham said.

“Safer Sumner, the residents

association and the community

have been very proactive in

wanting to discourage crime.

They raised money towards the

cameras and sought the ongoing

support and guidance of the

board. They did everything requested

of them and police have

also been supportive.”

Cable soon to be commissioned

ELECTRICITY upgrades are in

sight for Lyttelton, Corsair Bay

and Cass Bay.

An Orion spokesperson has

confirmed that work is on target

to commission the new $3

million 2.2km electricity cable

through the Lyttelton Tunnel

on or before July 31.

It was originally expected

that the new cable would be

fully operational by the end

of May but was delayed while

other works were being

undertaken in the area to

ensure its integrity.

Artwork to be given away

•From page 1

“It is just something new. It

took a while for people to get

their heads wrapped around it

was bubble wrap,” she said.

The artwork was grided up on

a pixelated map. The bubble wrap

was then hung over the artwork

and individual bubbles injected

with colour.

Eventually, the food colouring

will evaporate. It will take about

six weeks to disappear, Elizabeth

said.

The bubble wrap will then be

recycled.

It is not the only artwork

brightening up the mall.

A 4.8m x 3.6m high string mural

resembling bugs and featuring

more than 4000 screws were

installed.

“For the string art it was multigenerational

– the older people

remember doing that when they

were younger,” Elizabeth said.

The Hub Hornby centre manager

Jason Marsden said every

year the mall tries to do something

with an artistic creative

aspect to inspire people.

included giant sand sculptures,

LYTTELTON residents

may be in for a pleasant

surprise when they check

their letterboxes this

week.

A flyer showing

‘101 things to love

about Lyttelton’ will

be dropped to more

than 850 homes by

Vicki Tahau-Paton

(right).

Ms Tahau-

Paton was undertaking

a letterbox campaign for

her real estate business

in Lyttelton and wanted

to give back to the

community. Putting the

101 things flyer together

and distributing it seemed

a good way to do this.

The gesture comes

less than a month after

Lyttelton received a

scathing satirical review

on the Sh** Towns of New

Zealand Facebook page.

“I wanted people to

remember what

attracts them

to the town in a

positive way,” said

Ms Tahau-Paton.

She produced

the flyer after

receiving

more than 160

comments when

she asked people to share

their favourite thing about

the port town on the

Lyttelton – Ain’t No Place

I’d Rather Be Facebook

page.

“Opening the front gate

first thing in the morning

so neighbours and their

pets could come to visit,”

one comment read.

“New Year’s Eve at

the corner and the ships

blowing their horns,” read

another.

She collated them into a

graphic design, made up of

words from the comments

like “community,” “people”

and “views”.

“I was not expecting that

many responses, it blew

my heart apart. It was just

beautiful and so generous

of people to contribute,”

she said.

Ms Tahau-Paton has

lived in Lyttelton for

about 17 years and says

the community is what

she loves most. “We are

the luckiest people in

Canterbury,” she said.

Lonsdale considers

He said it was

that,” he said.

He was tight-lipped

over which ward he

would run in.

Many a Close Run Thing

by Tom Enright

A New Zealand squadron leader, flying-boat captain

and airliner pilot on a life of aerial adventure Planes

were rarely seen above the small Central Otago sheepfarming

town of Ranfurly in the 1940s. Yet as a young

boy, Tom Enright had a fascination with the skies that

quickly developed into a longing to become a pilot. He

joined the RNZAF as an engineer in 1951, and was sent

to England at just 16 to attend the revered Royal Air Force

college in Cranwell.

Returning to New Zealand to join the Vampire fighter squadron in Ohakea, Tom

became a famed member of the RNZAF aerobatic team. Later he became a

flying commander at Wigram air base, before captaining a Sunderland flying

boat to isolated communities in the vast South Pacific, often to the upper limits

of the plane’s endurance.

From the near-catastrophic opening of Wellington airport to flying Boeing 747s

into the world’s biggest airports, this is Tom Enright’s story of the mishaps,

misadventures and high-altitude drama of a 45-year flying career.

The Guardian of Lies

by Kate Furnivall

1953, the South of France. The fragile peace between the West and Soviet Russia

hangs on a knife edge. And one family has been torn apart by secrets and conflicting

allegiances.

Eloise Caussade is a courageous young Frenchwoman, raised on a bull farm near

Arles in the Camargue. She idolises her older brother, Andre, and when he leaves to

become an Intelligence Officer working for the CIA in Paris to help protect France, she

soon follows him. Having exchanged the strict confines of her father’s farm for a life of

freedom in Paris, her world comes alive.

But everything changes when Andre is injured - a direct result of Eloise’s actions. Unable

to work, Andre returns to his father’s farm, but Eloise’s sense of guilt and responsibility

for his injuries sets her on the trail of the person who attempted to kill him.Eloise finds

her hometown in a state of unrest and conflict. Those who are angry at the construction

of the American airbase nearby, with its lethal nuclear armaments, confront those who

support it, and anger flares into violence, stirred up by Soviet agents. Throughout all this

unrest, Eloise is still relentlessly hunting down the man who betrayed her brother and

his country, and she is learning to look at those she loves and at herself with different

eyes. She no longer knows who she can trust. Who is working for Soviet Intelligence

and who is not? And what side do her own family lie on?

Councillors may get childcare paid for

• By Louis Day

RATEPAYER MONEY could

be used to pay for the childcare

of councillors and community

board members.

This comes after a new

policy from the Remuneration

Authority was released at the

start of this month which allows

councils to reimburse elected

members for childcare.

If adopted by a council,

members are

eligible to an

allowance

only if their

child is under

14 and the

childcare is not

provided by a

family member.

Deon Swiggs

Childcare

allowances are

also limited to $6000 a year per

child.

City council secretary Jo Daly

said it would consider adopting

the policy before September.

City councillor Deon Swiggs

thought the policy would be well

supported.

“I would expect our council

to support it and I will be

supporting it myself, not

necessarily for councillors but

for community board members.

It just takes away a bit of a

barrier for people with families,”

he said.

Cr Swiggs did not expect the

policy to lead to a rates increases

should it be adopted.

“I would not expect it to

come from any new money

from rates, I would expect this

to be absorbed from other

funds.”

“We have a catering budget,

do we need a catering budget?

Those are the things I would like

to look at.”

Cr Aaron Keown, who has

three children of his own,

thought city councillors were

earning enough to pay for their

own childcare and community

board members did not need it

due to it being a part-time role.

Councillors are paid $102,400

whereas the pay of community

board members varies between

$9864 and $24,580, chairs of

community boards are paid up

to $49,160.

Cr Keown said it was not

needed in Christchurch but

could be in lower-paid councils

across the country.

Cr Sara Templeton said she

would vote in favour of the

policy and saw it as a small step

to increasing diversity around

the decision table.

Cr Mike Davidson said he was

“open-minded to it.”

The Selwyn District Council

adopted the policy last week.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he believed the policy would

ruffle feathers and result in

backlash from the community.

“There’s always going to be

someone saying, what are they

[the district council] doing? It’s

just a part of the job and I’m just

keen to get more young people

around the table and that is what

this is about,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

POLICE ARE reminding tradies

in Lyttelton and Corsair Bay to

lock it or lose it after an increase

in thefts from four-wheel-drive

vehicles.

Christchurch metro area

prevention manager Inspector

Leairne Dow said tradespeople

in particular should be cautious

and secure valuable tools left in

vehicles.

“Police take this offending very

seriously, we know the impact it

has on victims, particularly when

it’s someone’s livelihood being

taken,” she said.

There are a number of steps

tradies can take to keep their tools

secure, Inspector Dow said.

“Parking vehicles out of sight,

removing valuable items over

weekends, securing tools inside

vehicles with chains and padlocks

or even a tarp thrown over the top

of them can be useful deterrents.”

She said the Serial Number Action

Partnership website is a useful

tool for recording serial numbers

which assist in the return of stolen

property if located by police.

“We encourage tradies to get

their tools engraved with their

driver licence number, and enter

these on the SNAP website, so if

the tools are recovered, we can

return them.”

“We are delighted to showcase our new-look food court to our

community,” centre manager Kirstie McNulty says.

She invites customers to join in the celebrations marking the

launch of the upgraded food court, which kick off on Thursday

evening, July 25. More FM will be on site, along with the Winning

Wheel giving customers the chance to win exciting prizes.

The entertainment will also include face painting, music and

action entertainment, waiters with food sampling and balloon

twisting. The celebrations will continue throughout the evening

on Friday, July 26, August 1 and 2, and August 8 and 9, with face

painting, balloon twisting, entertainment and giveaways.

The food court is not the only place to enjoy a bite at Westfield,

however – there are more than 30 eating places located around

the centre, all under one roof. These combined with the major

retailers, fashion brands and numerous other specialty stores give

customers the opportunity to enjoy true one-stop shopping at

Westfield, with something there for the whole family. Extensive,

easily accessible free parking adds to the convenience.

The food court renovations are a follow-on from the previous

upgrading work that was carried out some 18 months ago at the

centre and included painting of the whole interior and the addition

of comfort zones and plantings, Ms McNulty says.

Forced into eyes on and being alert

Fire rages, homes at risk

I GUESS parenting isn’t

something that actually gets

easier.

There has been a recent change

in the nature of my parenting

experience.

My little girl hit the 18-month

mark last week and it’s like she’s

so much older all of a sudden.

There’s more word-like sounds,

she copies what you do and say

more (got to watch that road

rage swearing) and obviously

recognises words for certain

things.

I’ve got a painting in the hall

of a medieval village scene and

Vittoria can point out the dog if

asked.

That’s pretty cool. It involves

form recognition, word

recognition and the recognition

of what’s being asked of her.

But pointing out dogs doesn’t

fundamentally change my dayto-day.

What does is the fact that

Vittoria has finally cracked the

ability to climb onto the couch.

Therefore anything else of a

similar height.

That’s fine if I’m nearby but it

severely limits my opportunities

to leave her out of sight for any

length of time.

So there goes a relaxing

morning shower while Vittoria

VITTORIA

& Matt

innocently enjoys Pingu. Who

knows what mischief she could be

getting up to?

I suppose you’d probably

think it would stop me from

being able to duck off to the loo

as well, but then you wouldn’t

have a toddler then would you?

They can’t stay away from an

occupied loo.

As much as I’m lamenting

simpler times at home, I’m also

paradoxically super proud of her.

There’s been a couple of “how

did you get there” moments over

the last week, but one sticks out in

particular.

Vittoria’s highchair sits in the

kitchen, mostly unused. Climbing

it seems like a dangerous activity

and it scares the willies out of me

when she tries.

She was in the kitchen with me

the other day, helping me prepare

some food for her. I turned away

from her for mere seconds while

I washed up and in that time she

had climbed up the chair and was

happily sitting in it.

Terrifying.

Eyes on mate, eyes on.

•Former Bay Harbour News

journalist Matt Salmons

has become a stay-at-home

dad. We follow his journey

weekly.

Readers respond to

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham’s Soapbox

in last week’s Bay Harbour

News who criticises the

process of exclusion of the

public from seminars

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Tim Lindley

– I was a bit surprised by last

week’s article calling for public

right to attend community

board seminars and presenting

such a move as an ‘outbreak of

democracy’.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board I am on

holds two main types of meetings

– respectively called seminar

meetings and board meetings.

The board meetings are where

decisions are made and with very

few exceptions all are in public.

The word ‘seminar’ for the first

type of meeting may be a misnomer.

A more appropriate title

could be ‘board briefings’ as that

is closer to where they fit in the

chain of project governance.

They include staff updates on

approved projects, project plans

under development and forwardthinking

speculative concepts.

It is a time where board

members, as representatives of

the community, ask probing

questions and give frank and

honest feedback to council staff.

It is highly important that staff

presenting to these meetings feel

equally able, to be frank and honest

in their discussions.

Part of the discussion will

include when and how to get the

most effective community feedback

on project proposals.

This can take many forms,

including community meetings,

workshops, and on-line feedback.

For matters of significant impact,

there will also be a hearings

panel and I have served on many

of these.

Consultations matter and are

an important way to find good

ideas from the community and

ensure they are incorporated into

council project plans.

When a project comes to the

board decision meeting,

a board member

who is doing their job

well will have read

the full body of public

consultation and take

all views expressed

into account.

If consultation

and public feedback has been

inadequate or has been ignored it

behoves the board to insist that it

be done properly, and such board

deliberations are undertaken in

public.

From my experience as a firstterm

community board member

new to local politics, I have found

democracy alive and well in the

project approval and governance

processes of the board and that

public opinion is sought and

taken into account. It does not

mean that everyone will be happy

all the time, but that is how democracy

works.

The principle of continuous

improvement means we can

do better and should strive to,

however, I am not convinced that

making board briefings by staff

public represents an improvement

or serves our communities

any better.

Topsy Rule – As a resident of

the Sumner/Redcliffs

area for over

80 years, I am very

concerned to read that

the Linwood Central-

Heathcote Community

Board holds

some of its seminars

in secret.

We the ratepayers of Christchurch

pay the members wages and

elect them to work on our behalf.

Therefore, surely, we are entitled

to know just what is going on

in our area.

Alisdair Hutchison – I was

disturbed to read that most of

our elected Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

members regard it as good

practice routinely to exclude the

public from their seminars.

The more so when I read that

these elected representatives use

the seminars to discuss and debate

issues that are then voted on

at the following Board meeting.

Please, could they show some

leadership in this election year

and vote loudly to reverse the

presumption so that seminars are

routinely advertised and open.

When specific circumstances

warrant excluding the public for

part of a seminar that should be

decided on a case by case basis

with reasons being recorded in

writing and appended to the

agenda of the following Board

meeting.

I see that voting day is on

Saturday, October 13. It’s time to

sharpen the pencils.

Healthy harbour plan under way

Karen

Banwell was

appointed

as the

Whakaraupō

programme

manager

late last

year. A range of projects

associated with the

Whaka-Ora Healthy

Harbour plan have recently

started and she’s looking

forward to enhancing

community engagement

around the plan

I am excited about getting

the Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour

plan under way. This is a

wonderful opportunity for the

community to be involved in the

restoration of the Whakaraupō/

Lyttelton Harbour catchment

for ecological and cultural outcomes.

If we follow the markers laid

down in the plan, native birds

such as tūī, kārearea, and kāhu

can prosper, while our streams,

foreshore and wetlands thrive. I

feel privileged to be part of the

process.

The Whaka-Ora Healthy

Harbour Plan is all about engaging

the local community, so they

can play their part. The partners

– Christchurch City Council,

Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga

o Ngai Tahu, Lyttelton Port

Company and Environment

Canterbury – have recently upgraded

the Whaka-Ora Healthy

Harbour website. This was done

to make it more user-friendly to

show what has been completed

and to display how people can

be involved, so we can all work

toward realising the Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour plan.

We have provided funding to

local groups such as the Otamahua

Quail Island Restoration

Trust, Diamond Harbour Reserve

Committee, and our local

schools to continue with their

restoration efforts. The schools

will also be involved to carry out

their environmental education

projects to measure the water

quality and invertebrate life of

local streams.

The partners have set up a

BP Redcliffs

AUTO CENTRE

is NOW OPEN!

THE final stage of BP2go Redcliffs

redevelopment is complete - the Auto

Centre is now fully operational.

The all new BP2go complex opened at the

start of June, only 4 months after the old

service station was closed and demolished.

“Locals tell us they are very impressed

with the new BP, especially with what we

now have to offer the community,” said

Robert Jiang, owner/operator.

The service station hours have extended

to operate 24/7 and 91, 95, 98 and diesel are

now available with a convenient outdoor

payment terminal option. The forecourt

also features fast EV charge ports.

The site has a BP super car wash,

convenience store with barista cafe serving

exceptional food and expresso, a dog wash,

trailer hire, and full mechanical workshop

providing repairs, WOF checks and vehicle

servicing in the new Auto Centre.

“We’re pleased to advise that the Auto

Centre is now open for all your mechanical

repairs, servicing, and warrants. We’re very

pleased to have two of our three original

mechanics return. The Auto Centre is open

Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 5pm,

and from 7:30am to Noon on Saturday for

warrant checks. And to make it even easier,

people can make workshop bookings online

on our facebook page and website.”

Robert, who lives locally, has been the

Redcliffs franchise owner for the past nine

years.

“I’m proud we’ve been able to improve our

operation for the local community and am

grateful that everyone has been so patient

and supportive during the development.”

According to Robert the BP Superwash

has been a great addition to the business.

“It is a hassle free way to keep your car

looking great. Our hi-tech brushes provide

a great clean and are made of soft materials

that are gentle and on your car.”

Ask in-store when you make your next

carwash purchase about their fantastic

Trying conditions

for runners

• By Gordon Findlater

PERSISTENT RAIN late last

week meant that Sumner Running

Club members battled what

looked more like a mud bath than

a racer course at the Canterbury

Cross Country Championships.

A 28-strong team from Sumner

travelled to Halswell Quarry on

Saturday and weren’t put off by

the trying conditions. Across the

junior and senior categories the

club collected eight podium finishes,

including three golds.

In the juniors Abigail Scott-

Douglas finished third in the girls

under-12 race. There was also a

third place finish for Hero Barrettelli

in the boys under-10.

Meanwhile, in the senior events

golds were won by Robyn Perkins

in the women’s 55-plus, David

Fitch in the men’s 40-plus and

Graham Batchelor in the men’s 70

plus. There was also third place

finishes for Alistair Cory-Wright

in the men’s 50-plus, Jan Harrison

in the women’s 50-plus and

Katherine Fitch in the women’s

45-plus.

Uncertain future for Lyttelton

• By Gordon Findlater

LYTTELTON WILL go

into Saturday’s premier

reserve quarter finals as the

competition’s top qualifier.

However, that may not be good

enough to see them eligible to

play in the competition next

year.

A decision made by the

Canterbury Rugby Union three

years ago means teams wanting

to compete in the premier

reserve grade must also have a

team competing in the premier

competition.

The decision would mean

Lyttelton Rugby Club’s top side

will be forced to drop down to

the senior grade – also known as

division three – next year. However,

Lyttelton are challenging

the decision and club president

Clinton Norris is confident it

will be overturned as a meeting

between the CRFU, metro rugby

committee and the clubs on

August 7.

The change would also effect

Suburbs and Otautahi who also

compete in the premier reserve

grade, but not in the premier

competition. It’s understood

• By Gordon Findlater

LINWOOD CAN well and truly

be considered Sumner’s bogey

team after their season finished

with a third drubbing at Linfield

Park.

Sumner’s 0-47 loss to

Linwood on Saturday

followed their previous

heavy defeats to the same

opposition, losing 22-76

in April and 15-48 earlier

this month. The latest

result also eliminated

Sumner from the bowl

playoffs and ended their

season.

Coach Martin Dodgson said

the game was emblematic of their

season.

“When we were good, we were

really good, and when we were

bad, we were really bad,” said

Dodgson.

“Unfortunately we were only

really good for the last 20min and

Martin

Dodgson

the change was set to come into

place originally in 2017, but was

delayed until 2019 to allow the

clubs to try and establish a side

in both the premier and premier

reserve competitions.

Norris feels that if Lyttelton

are not able to field a side in the

premier reserve grade next year

it may result in players leaving

the sport.

“That would kill our club.

There’s just no way we could

hold onto players or even recruit

because players want to play in

the grade they feel they’re competitive

in,” said Norris.

the game was already gone.”

One thing Sumner can take

from their season is that they were

one of only two teams this year

to defeat both of this weekend’s

premier grand-finalists – Lincoln

University and High School

Old Boys.

However, due to their bowl

semi-final exit, they will

finish the competition below

University, which didn’t

win a round-robin match all

year, but defeated Belfast in

Saturday’s other bowl semifinal.

The attention now turns to

Sumner’s premier reserve team,

which hopes have better fortune

at Linfield Park on Saturday

when they play Linwood in their

quarter-final.

CONCERNS: A

decision from the

CRFU could see

Lyttelton relegated

from the premier

reserve grade which

they currently lead.

Some of our players would

drop out of the sport and be

lost to rugby . . . they just love

the culture we have, we’re like a

country club in the town competition,”

said Norris.

He also feels if the club’s top

side was forced to play in the

metro senior grade it would

eliminate the pathway for clubs

like Lyttelton to get to the top

and establish a premier side in

the future. Lyttelton currently

has two senior teams and eight

junior teams.

Lyttelton’s premier reserve

side won 12 of their 14 roundrobin

games this season and

host Sydenham in a quarter-final

at 1pm on Saturday. They have

previously won the competition

in 2011 and 2013.

In recent years former

Crusaders and All Blacks player

Corey Flynn has represented the

side.

Metro committee chairman

Brent Goldsmid said a decision

will be made at the meeting

on August 7, but declined to

comment further on the matter.

The CRFU was not able to

respond to questions before the

Pretty hatchback key part of Mazda3 range

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

THERE’S NO sign of the Mazda

Motor Corporation running out

of puff.

By its own admission, the

company was hit hard financially

through floods which forced

three months of cutbacks at its

Hiroshima factories last year.

However, since getting back on

track, Mazda has pumped out

a succession of desirable, high

quality models.

Those cars are also state of the

art, and designed for what current

buyers are looking for. That

statement could be contradictory

given the new Mazda3 has

been launched in a diminishing

market, the sedan/hatchback

sector has lost favour against

sport utility vehicles.

However, I’m of the belief that

there’s still plenty of interest in

traditional sedans, and that is

what I’d be looking for if I was in

a position to buy a new vehicle.

The new Mazda3 lands in

hatchback and sedan body styles,

they are each priced the same,

starting at $36,595 and ending

at $48,795. There are two engine

options along the way - 2-litre

or 2.5-litre – each paired to a

traditional six-speed automatic

transmission.

This evaluation focuses on the

entry-level GSX 2-litre hatchback,

and I’d be looking no further, it

certainly appeals to me, and at

around $36k has to be the bargain

of the series.

You wouldn’t be disappointed

with the level of specification,

it gets a full suite of safety

technologies, and items for

comfort and convenience are

in abundance. Sure, the cloth

trim doesn’t have the appeal of

leather, but for those living in

Christchurch cloth is by far the

more preferable, there’s no icy

feeling jumping into the car on a

frosty morning.

In terms of specification, it gets

satellite navigation, keyless entry

and ignition, radar cruise control/

speed limiter, and a host of other

features that Mazda has refined

and incorporated into all of its

models in recent years. That’s a

tempting package and, as regular

readers will recall, I’ve often

remarked on the build quality and

high grade trim materials that are

used on all Mazda product today.

As mentioned, the base model

GSX gets a 1998cc power plant,

it’s a naturally-aspirated unit,

what I mean is that it doesn’t have

a turbocharger like some other

vehicles in the Mazda line-up.

That’s no detraction, this engine

MAZDA3 GSX HATCHBACK: Strong line-up in diminishing market.

is part of the SkyActive range of

Mazda drivelines, highlighted by

good power outputs in relation

to efficiency. The key figures are

114kW and 200Nm, it will also

return a combined cycle fuel

usage average of 6.2-litres per

100km (45mpg).

These are Mazda’s claims, and

I wouldn’t dispute them. On my

evaluation drive the fuel usage

readout was constantly listing

around 7.8l/100km (36mpg),

with an instantaneous figure

of 6l/100km (47mpg) on offer

with the engine turning over at

1800rpm at 100km/h.

I took the evaluation car

through the twists and turns of

the roads which run parallel to

the Selwyn River, and I can report

it has beautiful handling balance

and high levels of comfort.

The GSX rides on tyres far

from low in profile. At 205/60 x

16in they sit tall on the wheel,

and won’t give you the handling

dynamics of the low profile

rubber fitted to high-grade

variants.

However, what they do

give is amazing ride quality,

and the handling is far from

compromised.

Steerage is still direct, and with

a low centre of gravity (body

height just 1435mm) there is

control within the suspension

and relative freedom. I say that

because Mazda has introduced

a new rear suspension into the 3

range.

It came as a bit of a surprise to

learn the old fully-independent

system has been dropped in

favour of a torsion beam type.

I would have considered that

was a backward step, but Mazda

has told me that they have every

confidence in the new design.

In effect, it does work

confidently, and if technical

details don’t bother you in a

purchase then you are never

going to tell the difference.

The balance between power

• Price – Mazda3 GSX

hatchback, $36,595

• Dimensions – Length,

4460mm; width,

1795mm; height, 1435mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 114kW,

200Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.2l/100km

and handling is manufactured

so that if you want to have a

spirited drive the 2-litre engine

performs admirably, there is

plenty of power on tap, and it has

a complete willingness through

the entire rev band.

If you wish for a spirited

drive there is a sport mode

available at the driver’s discretion,

it livens the engine markedly, but

I was more interested in gleaning

good fuel use stats so I used it

only for a short period just for

evaluation purposes only. For the

record, the Mazda3 in this form

will scamper to 100km/h in a

respectable 9sec.

As much as I enjoyed the bold

design of the hatchback – the rear

quarter is simply stunning – I’d be

in the sedan market.

However, I’m well aware that

buyers like sport utility vehicles,

but it’s good to see traditional

models are still in the marketplace,

I hope that Mazda is rewarded

through solid sales.
