Jim owns ‘more kites than anyone in NZ’

If you’ve seen kites flying

over New Brighton beach,

chances are one of them

belongs to Jim Nicholls.

For the last 11 years, Mr

Nicholls has been collecting

and flying “hundreds” of kites

and sharing his passion for

them with others.

Last month, the 78-yearold

Parklands resident

received a Coastal-Burwood

Community Service Award

for his contribution.

“I have more kites than

anyone in New Zealand, for

sure,” he said.

issue

• By Matt Slaughter

THE BATTLE for the Burwood

Ward rages on.

This time it’s over a call from

Parklands residents to repair the

Inwoods Rd end of Mairehau Rd.

Mairehau Rd neighbours Grant

Donnell and Terry Marsh said

Burwood Ward city councillor

Glenn Livingstone has not done

enough to help them get the road

fixed.

Now Burwood Ward city

council candidate Phil Mauger,

who is trying to oust Cr

Livingstone in October’s local

body elections, is questioning why

the road has not been repaired.

“Glenn, sadly, he’s not jumping

up and down enough to get the

money spent in the east,” said

Mr Mauger, who owns Maugers

Contracting Ltd.

However, Cr Livingstone said

the comments were “not fair at

all” as he has been asking for

Mairehau Rd to be fixed for some

time.

Opportunity missed over toilets

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

PEOPLE WITH mobility

issues will have to wait for toilet

facilities to be built closer to the

Taiora: QE II Recreation and

Sport Centre’s hydrotherapy

pool.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Linda Stewart

pool user Aileen

Trist say the

city council

has missed an

opportunity to

“The left over money went into

[the city council] metropolitan

east, and now I’ve asked our

governance manager to find out

how we can get it back,” said Ms

Stewart.

Said city council head of

recreation, sports and events

Nigel Cox: “[City council] staff

Mrs Trist, who raised the

original concerns about the

hydrotherapy pool with the

community board, said she was

“disgusted” the leftover funds

had not been used to build more

accessible toilet facilities.

“That is a smack in the face

for the people with health issues

and disabilities that they had

money there to do that and

didn’t do it, she said.

“These people are being

discriminated against.”

Mrs Trist previously told

Pegasus Post her husband

Tony, who is paralysed down

his left side, was almost left

embarrassed trying to get to the

toilet facilities in the past.

She said two years was too

long for people like Tony to

wait for more accessible toilet

facilities to be built. “That’s

two or three years too late. You

know, like, it’s going to happen,

but meanwhile, that should have

been on the original plan.”

Said Ms Stewart: “To

me, it’s a health and safety

issue, it’s not something that

should wait two or three years.

We should provide for the

disabled community as soon as

we can.”

Veterinary practice

Dr Steve works his magic again…

“CoCo” is a three year old speyed bunny

- a very loved and adored pet who

recently underwent Bilateral Cataract

Surgery. This surgery was a first for

Steve who did his research prior to the

operation. He has operated many times

on dogs, cats and even a hawk but not

a rabbit.

head end of the patient is impossible.

Expertise and experience with rabbit

anaesthetics is essential when your

surgery may last one to two hours. Often

they require you to ventilate for them,

they must be kept warm, hydrated and

constant recordings of blood pressure

need to be recorded.

Straight away Coco was placed on

intravenous fluids, had blood taken

(no kidney or liver compromise was

seen) and was allowed to snack

on veggies and hay before her GA.

Prior to her anaesthetic she was

supplemented with oxygen to

increase oxygen concentration in

UP AND AWAY: Jim

Nicholls owns kites of

all different shapes and

sizes, including this

teddy bear, which he

flies at New Brighton

beach.

Coco was having real difficulty finding

her food bowls and manoeuvring

around outside. She had always

loved charging around outside with

the other rabbits. Her cataracts had

developed fast in approximately

two months, the right eye more

mature than the left eye. Cataracts in

rabbits can be congenital, traumatic,

metabolic as in diabetes, inflammatory

secondary to uveitis or infectious, as in

the case of E Cuniculi. Coco was being

treated for E Cuniculi, which is a parasite

ingested and eliminated in the urine.

This parasite causes inflammation in the

lens and a capsular cataract can develop,

leading to uveitis and sometimes

glaucoma. It is painful and the rabbits

will often scratch at the eye.

Coco was referred to Steve and her

primary vet and nurse came over to

monitor Coco’s anaesthetic. Rabbits

on the whole are difficult patients to

monitor under anaesthetic due to

their size and eye surgeries are difficult

anyway because monitoring the

the blood. Once anaesthetised she was

hooked up to a blood pressure monitor

and pulsoximeter (measuring her oxygen

saturation in the blood) and positioned

for cataract surgery.

The surgery went really well with Steve

removing the crystalline lenses in both

eyes. A Cataract is a lens opacity and is

due to the loss of architecture of the lens

or capsule fibres. To us the lens appears

cloudy (the lens is in the middle of the

eye). The cataract is then sucked out with

a phacoemulsification machine. This

machine vibrates, cuts and vacuums the

cataract out. If all goes well, the visual

axis is clear and vision is restored.

So far so good. Steve has frequently

checked her eyes and Coco can

visually see well out both her eyes, her

intraocular pressures are good, she is

comfortable and happier now her ocular

world has opened up again.

I think its brilliant Coco’s owner gave her

a chance at restored sight. The other

option would have been removing the

eyes, as the uveitis and glaucoma could

have been too painful for her to live with.

For any questions on cataract

surgeries please contact Steve

directly at McMaster & Heap Vet

Practice. He has just invested in a

new phacoemulsification machine so

hopefully will get to test drive it soon.

Encouraging

kids to fly kites

•From page 1

His love of kites has seen

him become a fixture at

community events across

the east, including the

annual Kite Day at New

Brighton beach.

He said he enjoys getting

out and showing people

how great kite-flying can

be.

“One of the things I do

is try to encourage other

people to fly, and especially

children. I’ve given away

lots and lots of kites over

the years in an effort to

encourage children to fly

because I think it’s a great

thing. It gets them outside

and gives something of

interest to do other than

sitting in front of a screen

all day.”

Mr Nicholls also has

a YouTube channel with

more than 1000 videos

devoted to kites, which

is watched by 3000

subscribers from all over

the world.

He says what started off

as an interest turned into

much more after he first

attended Kite Day.

“I attended one . . . there

was a stall on the beach

selling kites and I thought,

oh, I’ll get one and have a

go.

“I just loved the feeling so

much of having this kite up

in the air that I decided to

buy another one and then

another and another and it

just sort of snowballed and

it just became a bit of an

addiction.”

Mr Nicholls said the cold

weather hardly ever puts

him off flying his kites and

not even the aftershocks

from the 2011 earthquake

stopped him.

“I kept going right

through the earthquakes. I

was often the only person

down the beach because

the beach was shaking too

much sometimes.

“The pure enjoyment of

being outside and having

kites up in the air on a nice

day or even on a cold day.

There’s nothing better I

think.”

Work on clock tower

starts ticking along

• By Matt Slaughter

THE NEW Brighton clock tower

repairs have started.

The work is expected to take

about six months.

It was supposed to start in

September but was delayed after

a detailed investigation revealed

more damage and overdue

maintenance-related issues than

expected.

City council manager of capital

delivery community Darren

Moses said the contractors were

on site last week removing some

of the old concrete from the

dome area at the top of the clock.

Said Mr Moses: “Reinforcing

will be repaired and replaced.

The dome will be propped and

measures put in place to protect

the historic newspapers lining

the under-side of the dome.”

The repair work will also

involve the replacement of two

internal floors, which have

significant cracks.

“The project team will take the

opportunity to address access

into each floor and ensure it is

made safe,” said Mr Moses.

The structure will be repainted

in the original colours it featured

when it was first built in 1934 –

green, sand and ochre.

“The lead paint has been

removed from the entire surface,

exposing the original multicoloured

plaster finish,” he said.

Said Mr Moses: “If possible

the project team will also look

at alternative ways to mount the

clock mechanisms within the

tower to minimise vibrations.

Vibrations from earthquakes

have been a cause of the clocks

showing the incorrect time over

the years.”

Other repair work will involve

fixing drainage issues around the

dome, the application of concrete

and corrosion treatments to the

entire structure and upgrading

electrical wiring before the tower

is plastered and painted.

The clock tower will be

fixed at the same time as the

Scarborough clock tower.

Tension between candidates over Mairehau Rd repairs

FED UP: Grant Donnell and Terry Marsh want the city council to fix the

potholes on Mairehau Rd.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

•From page 1

“I’ve constantly raised this at

[Coastal-Burwood] community

board level. I’ve called on [city

council] staff to come back with a

date for the transport team to report

to the community board on both

this and other roads in the Burwood

and Coastal wards,” he said.

Said city council head of transport

operations manager Steffan Thomas:

“The resurfacing of this section

of Mairehau Rd is currently still

programmed for the 2021 financial

year. However, we continually

review our programme and this may

change depending on its condition

relative to other streets across the

city.”

Cr Livingstone has asked city

council staff to repair this section of

Mairehau Rd before 2021.

Mr Donnell and Mr

Marsh said their houses are being

shaken and damaged by trucks

and heavy vehicles driving through

potholes on Mairehau Rd.

In response to a Pegasus Post

article about the damage, Cr

Livingstone asked the city council to

prioritise the repair of the road and

consider reducing the speed limit to

mitigate further damage.

The city council recently decided

Cr Livingstone’s request to lower

the 50km/h speed limit along the

stretch of road wasn’t necessary.

Mr Mauger believes repairing

Mairehau Rd would be a simple job

and says Cr Livingstone has not

pushed hard enough to get it started.

“It has to be done through the

right processes, but it could be done

very easily and there’s no reason

why it can’t be done tomorrow if

they make the money available,”

said Mr Mauger.

Cr Livingstone said it was not this

easy.

“I totally understand people want

the roads fixed yesterday . . . but,

there are many, many wheels in this.

It is a marathon, not a sprint.”

Mr Donnell says it has cost

$10,000-$15,000 to repair the

damage to his house, and it has

worsened since he last spoke to

Pegasus Post.

GIFTED: Te Pou

Toetoe Linwood

Pool has been

chosen as

the name for

Linwood’s new

$22 million pool

complex, which

is set to open in

late 2021.

Name for planned Linwood pool

TE NGĀI Tūāhuriri has gifted

a special name to Linwood’s

planned $22 million pool

complex.

The community facility will

be known as Te Pou Toetoe:

Linwood Pool, and is set to open

in late 2021.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said

the name reflects both the local

environment and the passing of

knowledge.

“The term pou is a reference to

both the building itself, and to

the way we pass knowledge from

person to person and generation

to generation,” Mr Cox said.

“The toetoe comes from the

clusters of toetoe and vegetation

originally found in the area on

the sand dunes near Ihutai (the

estuary).”

The concept designs for the

pool were approved by the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in May

following extensive community

engagement.

The planned facility will be

adjacent to Linwood Park and

include a multi-use 25m lane

pool, which will feature a deepwater

area, a family spa pool,

learn to swim pool and a pool for

toddlers, complete with a water

deck.

Community meeting rooms

and a kitchen are also part of the

design.

“Food has traditionally been a

great reason for people to connect

socially, and the bookable kitchen

will be a major point of difference

that Te Pou Toetoe has for the

community. When integrated

with our outdoor gathering area

and picnic tables, the kitchen will

let the community come together

to prepare and eat food in a way

you don’t always get in a public

space.”

The outdoor community

space will connect the facility

to Linwood Park and include a

picnic tables, tennis and multiuse

courts and cycle stands.

Libraries celebrate 160

years with exhibition

of rare memorabilia

WHEN Christchurch residents

borrowed their first books from

a library, it was from a single

room on High St in 1859.

Now, the 160th birthday of

Christchurch City Libraries

is being celebrated with

the exhibition

Illuminate:

Unearthing

Treasures from our

Collection, which

opened on Saturday

in the Southbase

Gallery at Tūranga.

It will run until

October 27.

The exhibition

features rare

books, including

An Account of a

Voyage Around

the World, by James

Cook, published

in 1773; original New Zealand

artworks, historic maps, vintage

posters from the 1970s and

1980s, including some printed

by record label Flying Nun and

a typescript of catalogue of the

Universe by Margaret Mahy.

Library branches around

the city will also mark the

anniversary with displays

of historic photographs and

Carolyn Robertson

memorabilia.

City council head of libraries

Carolyn Robertson said the

importance of libraries has

grown hugely over the past 160

years.

“It’s amazing to think that

libraries have been

serving local people

for so long. In those

early days books

were all people

could borrow, but

today’s libraries are

a source of so much

information across

many different

platforms, as well as

being home to a huge

range of programmes

and events.”

“Regardless

of changes in

technology,

libraries have always been a

place to inspire knowledge,

foster creativity, challenge

our curiosity and meet other

people,” she said.

“This anniversary is a great

opportunity to celebrate that

role. Illuminate is all about

showing how libraries can

open our eyes, and bring new

information to light.”

time they have with you, they

love to show off what they’ve

everyone up, too, to have flowers

in the gardens and see . . . an

extra somebody working in the

gardens.”

She said the award was a

surprise.

“I didn’t expect an award. I

mean, it was quite lovely to get

one, it really was . . . there’s so

Construction on last

section of the Avon

Loop to start this year

WORK ON the final section of

the Avon Loop is expected to

start later this year.

The section is on Oxford

Tce between Kilmore St and

Fitzgerald Ave. The area has been

closed to traffic for years due to

earthquake damage and most of

the properties have

been removed.

The loop will

connect the recently

completed City

Promenade to any

future developments

in the residential red

zone.

Ōtākaro Ltd is

in the process of

completing the design

for the final section and seeking

tenders for its construction.

“The loop has become

incredibly popular with

pedestrians and dog walkers and

this work will make the area a

safer, more pleasant place to be,”

said Ōtākaro chief executive John

Bridgman.

“A smooth, safe pathway

for pedestrians and cyclists,

boardwalk, canoe/kayak ramp,

native planting and new lighting

John Bridgman

will be incorporated into the

area, along with some car

parking,” he said.

“People will be able to walk,

bike or scooter along the Avon

River all the way from the health

precinct, past the Canterbury

Earthquake National Memorial,

the terraces, Te Pae

Christchurch Convention

Centre, Victoria Square

and the Margaret Mahy

Family Playground, right

through to Fitzgerald

Ave.

“It will be a significant

asset for the city as an

alternative transport

route, or as somewhere

to take visitors to

Christchurch,” said Mr

Bridgman.

The design for the Avon

Loop has been developed with

input from the city council and

Matapopore Charitable Trust to

ensure the cultural significance

of the area is respected.

The cost, and start and finish

dates, for the Avon Loop work

will be determined in the coming

months, when a main works

contractor is appointed.

Haeata student’s speech

earns her a scholarship

• By Matt Slaughter

HAEATA Community Campus’

Taiaopo Tuilaepa has won the

FAGASA Samoan National

Speech Competition.

The year 13 student was

awarded a three-year scholarship

at Otago University for her

efforts. Year 10 student Cattleya

Fruean finished fourth at the

event in Auckland.

“I’m so proud of myself

because I hadn’t done it before,

it’s my first time,” said Taiaopo.

“I didn’t want to go to the

university, I wanted to go to

ARA and study to be a Samoan

teacher. And then, surprise, I’m

going to the university, Otago

University,”

Competitors gave speeches on

the theme of weaving together an

environment for a better future

and the differences between

Samoa and New Zealand.

“There are three key points,

the first one is life in Samoa, life

in New Zealand and differences

about the school back in Samoa

and the school here,” Cattleya

said.

“The difference in Samoa is

there’s only one teacher and

like 30 kids . . . it’s been a big

challenge for me . . . in Samoa I

didn’t speak English,” she said.

Cattleya said she had enjoyed

taking part in the competition.

“At first, I didn’t know that

I could complete the speech

competition but I gave it a try. I

felt nervous at first but I got used

to it.”

Taiaopo said the competition

was an opportunity to share her

culture with others.

“It’s good because other people

don’t know Samoan culture. I’m

so proud of my culture and my

language, because it’s my first

current events whizzes

put pen to paper at the

Otago Daily Times Extra!

Canterbury quiz at

Cobham Intermediate.

Pupils from across the

region formed teams

of three on Tuesday

and were tested with

questions including who

am I, what am I, New

Zealand places, around

the world mapping and

famous faces.

Tai Tapu School won

the year 5 and 6 section

with 82 points out of a

possible 100.

Closely following in second

was Fendalton Open-Air School,

which was only two points

behind the champions with 80.

Prebbleton School secured

third with a score of 79.

Tai Tapu champions Ethan

Garrett-Burke, 9, Edward Bull,10,

and Caleb O’Leary, 10, were

pleasantly pleased with their win.

Edward said he “didn’t like

the faces” questions, but the

team enjoyed the challenges.

North Loburn School won the

year 7 and 8 quiz with 89 points.

William Hassall, 12, Charley

Ward, 13, and Harry Witt, 12,

said they were happy to win the

quiz, but “it wasn’t planned.”

“The newspaper was the

hardest part,” Charley said.

PEGASUS POST

WINNERS: Tai Tapu School year 5

and 6 pupils Ethan Garrett-Burke, 9,

Edward Bull, 10, and Caleb O’Leary, 10,

were stoked with their win.

The teams had to find answers

to questions from an Otago Daily

Times newspaper, which caught

them off guard.

Two Hillview Christian School

teams took second and third with

88 and 87 points. Extra! editor

Tricia Rowe was pleased the

event went smoothly.

“The year 7 and 8 group were

really lively, which made the quiz

go fast,” she said. “The lead up to

the event has been stressful, with

balancing writing papers and

writing the quizzes, but I’ve got a

really good team.”

The quiz was run by the

Otago Daily Times through

primary, intermediate and junior

secondary school pupils.

420 new trees planted

at wetland in an hour

GREEN: School students and community members planted

trees at Travis Wetland Nature Heritage Park.

• By Matt Slaughter

ABOUT 80 people have planted

420 trees at Travis Wetland

Nature Heritage Park.

Community members and

students from Shirley Boys’ High

School, Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

and Christ’s College made light

work of the job, planting the trees

in about an hour.

The event was organised by the

Eco-Action Nursery Trust.

Trustee David Newton said for

the students involved “they’re all

trees that they’ve participated in

growing.”

“We propagate and send out

nursery kits to satellite nurseries

at different schools and then

school students at those

schools pot them up from small

seedling size to the larger pots,

keep them growing for a year and

then participate in planing them

out.”

The planting session finished

with biscuits and a brief chat

about service to the community

and carbon sequestration, a

process where carbon dioxide is

removed from the atmosphere

and held in solid or liquid form.

Tahlia earns

her way

to national

honours

• By Jacob Page

COASTAL SPIRIT’S Tahlia

Herman-Watt says missing out

on the New Zealand under-20

team 12 months ago only

intensified her desire to make it

this year.

The 18-year-old defender, who

is studying sports coaching at

Canterbury University, was one

of the last names cut, but she

used the experience to motivate

her in 2019.

“It was sad to miss out at the

time because I gave it everything

but it probably makes this feeling

even better.”

The team will head to the OFC

under-19 championship at the

end of this month in the Cook

Islands.

The tournament will take place

from 29 August to 14 September

with New Zealand being drawn

in Group B with Samoa, American

Samoa and Tahiti.

The winner of the tournament

will qualify for the 2020 FIFA

U-20 Women’s World Cup as the

OFC representatives.

Herman-Watt, a former Rangiora

High School student, who

started her football career as a

under-20 football team.

five-year-old at Amberley, said

she had worked on her attacking

game over the past 12 months.

“Playing at fullback, there’s a

lot of organisation that needs to

be done but also a bit of attacking

and that’s something I think has

got better over time.”

She will start her fourth

year with the Mainland Pride

women’s premier team and she

praised current coach Alana

Gunn and former Pride coach

Mike Di Bono as being influential

in her progression.

“Gunny has been a big part of

who I am today, when she asked

me to come to Coastal (three

years ago), I jumped at it - I didn’t

need to think twice.”

Coastal Spirit defender balances

education with his Olympic goal

• By Jacob Page

COASTAL SPIRIT defender

Sean Liddicoat will shift his

attention back to his civil

engineering degree before

trying to make the New Zealand

under-23 team for their Olympic

qualification campaign.

The 22-year-old, who lives in

Marshland, has returned from

the Pacific Games in Samoa,

where New Zealand won gold.

They defeated New Caledonia

2-1 in the final.

“I think it was a great

achievement. It was certainly

more physical than what we are

used to and a definite step up on

the club stuff in New Zealand,

but it was a good challenge,”

Liddicoat said.

The Brunei-born defender

said the heat and tricky underfoot

conditions provided some

challenges, as did playing

matches with only one day off in

between.

“Physically it was demanding,

conditions could get quite boggy.

It was hot and we played a fair

few games in a short amount of

time, which took some getting

used to.”

The team will have the

ideal preparation for their

bid to qualify for the 2020

Tokyo Olympics by taking on

Australia in two matches next

month.

will meet the Australia under-23s

in New South Wales, shortly

before heading to Fiji for the

OFC men’s Olympic qualifying

tournament.

The games against Australia

will take place at Wollongong

on September 6 and at

Campbelltown three days later.

The Olympic qualifying

tournament will be held in

Fiji from September 21 to

October 5.

Before Liddicoat focuses on

his football goals, he said he

will prioritise his final year

of an engineering degree at

Canterbury University.

Simple ways to cut back on the calories

Making a simple swap from

pastry to a tortilla wrap

instantly brings down the

calories. Filled with fresh

ingredients, these samosas

and simple chicken curry

recipes are a great way to

eat well and lose weight

Samosas

Makes 6

Prep time 10min

Cooking time 15min

Ingredients

2 medium potatoes, peeled and

diced into 1cm pieces

75g frozen peas

Low-calorie cooking spray

½ onion, diced

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tsp grated root ginger

Generous pinch of chilli powder

½ tsp ground coriander

¼ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp ground turmeric

½ tsp garam masala

30g spinach

Juice of ½ lemon

Sea salt

3 low-calorie tortilla wraps, cut

in half

1 egg, beaten

Fresh coriander, to serve

Directions

Cook the diced potatoes in a

pan of boiling salted water for

5min, then drain. Cook the peas

in boiling salted water and drain.

Heat the oven to 200 deg C

(fan 180 deg C) and line a baking

tray with some greaseproof

paper or baking paper.

Spray a pan with some lowcalorie

cooking spray and place

over a medium heat. Add the

onion, garlic and ginger and

cook for 3-4min until softened

but not browned, then add the

spices and cook for another

minute. Stir in the cooked potato

and mash it slightly with a fork

or the back of a spoon before

adding the uncooked spinach,

lemon juice and peas. Add a

pinch of salt and stir.

Brush the edges of the halved

wraps with the beaten egg. Fold

each half into a cone shape and

seal the edge, leaving the top

open to add the filling.

Divide the filling equally

between the wraps, being careful

not to overfill them (if you do,

you will not be able to seal them

properly).

Brush the open end of the

wraps with some more beaten

egg, leave for 30-40sec, until it

becomes tacky, then press the

edges together firmly. ]

You can use a fork to do this,

but be careful not to rip the

wrap. Arrange the samosas on

the tray.

Brush each samosa with plenty

of beaten egg, make sure the

edges are sealed, then place in

the oven for 10min, or until they

are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and

serve warm. You can also

allow to cool, wrap in baking

parchment and freeze for

another day.

Super simple chicken curry

Serves 4

Prep time 5min

Cooking time 30min

Ingredients

Low-calorie cooking spray

1 large onion, sliced

450g chicken breast (skin and

visible fat removed), diced

3 garlic cloves, crushed

400ml water

3 Tbsp curry powder

1 Tbsp ground turmeric

1 Tbsp tomato puree

Sea salt and freshly ground black

pepper

To serve (optional)

Samosas (see previous recipe)

Cooked rice

Ingredients

Spray a large frying pan with

low-calorie cooking spray and

place over a medium heat.

Add the onion and cook for

2min until softened slightly,

then add the diced chicken to

the pan and cook for 5min until

browned.

Add the garlic to the pan and

cook for 1min, then add all the

other ingredients. The water

should just about cover the

chicken – you may need a little

more or less depending on the

size of your pan.

Leave to simmer gently for

20min.

Turn the heat up and boil the

curry for another 5min, stirring

frequently to ensure it doesn’t

catch on the bottom of the pan,

this will reduce and thicken the

sauce slightly.

Serve the curry with your

choice of accompaniment.

Tip: This curry recipe works

well with lean diced lamb (all

visible fat removed) too.

check before winter sets in

Winter weather can present a range of tricky driving conditions

before winter really sets in.

order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on cold mornings they
