Security company’s bid to

lower crime in Lyttelton

• By Jess Gibson

CLAIMS OF a lack of policing

in Lyttelton has led to a private

security company patrolling the

streets.

Residents have been complaining

about an increase in crimes such

as vehicle damage and theft during

hours where there is no police

presence.

The Lyttelton police station is

only staffed between 8am-5pm –

after that, any calls are taken by

police in Christchurch.

In response, private security

company Tactical Response Team

has been patrolling the streets since

August 20, on Tuesdays, Thursdays

and Saturdays, 9pm until 3am.

However, police statistics show

that crime has not significantly

increased in Lyttelton.

A trend shows levels of reported

crime in Lyttelton have remained

relatively stable over the past two

years.

There has been no consistent

increase this year, with crime

numbers fluctuating from month

to month.

The highest number of crimes

reported this year was 53 in

February, the lowest number

reported was 28 in April – the

average number of crimes for the

year so far is 41.

THE LEGACY of the 2011 earthquakes

still continue to wreak havoc.

Right now they continue to tear the

heart out of Sumner business (see page

4-5).

It took a long time for the retail and

cafe area to recover from the three big quakes in 2011. But

now roadworks which are under way as part of upgrades to

the village have put some back to square one.

Chrissie Beardsley, who owns Chrissie’s Label Clothing on

Nayland St, is feeling the full force of the downturn.

She has managed to stay afloat with other funding, otherwise

and she would have been forced to shut-up shop.

The silver lining is once the roadworks and other

improvements to the area are finished, Sumner will be

looking pretty good.

Reserve status unlikely to be revoked

• By Jess Gibson

THE DEPARTMENT of

Conservation does not believe

an argument could be made to

revoke the reserve status of a

former Maori burial ground.

There have been ongoing discussions

about returning ownership

and management of Purau

Maori Reserve to local runanga

over the past century.

A report

was presented

to the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board

in May last year

which gave two

options to return

Andrew

Turner

ownership to

local hapu Ngati

Wheke, one of

which would reclassify

the land from recreation

reserve to historic reserve.

The second and preferred

option was to revoke the reserve

status, which would enable the

city council to then consider

returning the land to Te Hapu o

Ngati Wheke.

The report was laid on the

table while clarification was

sought on the derivation of the

reserve and claims of error in

the report.

This was because the Purau

Residents Association argued

any decision to revoke the

tree trouble?

LAND: Reserve status is unlikely to be revoked at a Maori burial ground on Purau Ave, which

must happen in order for local runanga to reclaim the land. ​

reserve status would be an illconsidered

act of privatisation.

However, that report has now

been “formally withdrawn by

city council staff.”

The community board was

presented with information

within the area report at its

meeting on Monday.

It said the report was withdrawn

due to it being unlikely

that the original recommendation

from staff can proceed.

DoC staff stated that given

the current location, use and

historical significance of the

reserve, they did not believe an

argument could be made that

the land has no reserve value.

Ngati Wheke representatives

have indicated to the city council

they are now seeking further

advice from Ngai Tahu and the

process is ongoing.

Rapaki representative Yvette

Couch-Lewis was unable to

respond before the Bay Harbour

Peninsula councillor Andrew

Turner requested clearer wording

around DoC’s statement

that they did “not believe” the

reserve status could be revoked.

He said wording needed to

be clearer before the community

board accepted the statement

as there has been a lot of

community interest in the

issue.

It is expected that a revised

report will come to the

community board within the

next three years.

CORSAIR BAY RUBBISH

City council staff will investigate

problems with rubbish at

Corsair Bay. There have been

ongoing issues with bins not

being emptied regularly enough,

which has upset residents. There

has also been concern over the

proximity of the bins to the water

and the visual impacts this has

for visitors. Meanwhile, graphics

and colours for new Bigbelly Bins

being installed in Akaroa are set

to be considered at a meeting

today.

2500 PLANTS FOR RESERVE

THe Diamond Harbour reserve

management committee estimates

about 2500 plants have been dug

in around the reserve so far this

year. It compares to 1800 which

were planted last year. There are

still 400 plants available for use

by the committee for 2019 and it

is yet to be decided how these will

be used.

Road works in Sumner Village push

Road works being

undertaken as part of the

Sumner Village Master

Plan are causing havoc

for businesses. Jess

Gibson reports

TEN YEARS ago, Chrissie

Beardsley’s dream of owning a

second-hand designer clothing

store became a reality.

With Sumner in mind as the

perfect location, she opened

Chrissie’s Label Clothing on

Nayland St and quickly saw her

business thrive.

She faced turmoil in 2011

when the earthquake struck

and resulted in a downturn in

business – but the friendships she

had formed with customers gave

her the motivation to hang on.

Now the road works which

are being done as part of the

city council’s Sumner Village

upgrades have pushed her to her

limit.

Ms Beardsley said she was

lucky she managed to keep afloat

with other funding, otherwise

and she would have been forced

to “shut up shop.”

Dust and noise have permeated

through Sumner’s main streets

since work began in March to

build new road surfaces, kerbs,

DOWNTURN: Chrissie Beardsley has put up 30 per cent off signs at her store Chrissie’s Label

Clothing in an attempt to make back the average loss of $1000 a week she has suffered f.

footpaths, stormwater drains,

landscaping, and add feature

paving.

Diggers, fencing and road

cones can be seen on Marriner

St, Wakefield Ave, Burgess St and

Nayland St.

Outside shops, some footpaths

have been closed, parking has

been reduced and Marriner St

and Wakefield Ave are often

reduced to one lane of traffic.

Eventually, the enhancement

works will improve the

functionality, safety, connectivity

and amenity of Sumner Village.

It will provide new street

furniture, landscaped areas, cycle

lanes, a paved shared space and

crossing points, wider footpaths

and a slower speed environment.

And with construction ball

parked to be completed by the

end of the month, Ms Beardsley

has “no idea” what she will feel

when it is all over.

She described the entire

process as “soul-destroying.”

‘Thirty per cent off’ signs

remain in her shop window at a

time when they would usually

be stored away in an attempt to

make back the average loss of

$1000 a week she has suffered.

“I’ve been crying over it,” she

said.

“No one has come and talked

to me and asked how the business

is going. I could have shown

them my financial books which

had dropped from $2000 to $300

a week – that’s a big change.”

Ms Beardsley’s is not the only

business to take a hit.

Two shops, one of which has

been in Sumner for 21 years, now

lie vacant.

“Customers have been

struggling to get around with the

one-ways and no parking. It’s just

about wiped us off the planet,”

Ms Beardsley said.

business owners to the limit

CLOUD cafe and Korean Tapa

Bar owner Marty Moon opened

his business on Marriner St five

months ago, about the same time

work started on the upgrades.

“We have been affected quite a

lot,” he said.

But in spite of the hit he has

taken while trying to make a

name for his

business, Mr

Moon said he

has been happy

with the way

contractors have

dealt with the

process.

Sara

Templeton

He said they

have made an

effort to keep him

regularly updated

as the project progresses through

its different stages.

Across the road, Joe’s Garage

Sumner owner Callum Brownlee

said he usually notices a steady

increase in business year on

year. However, there has been no

growth this year so far.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton acknowledged

the road works have been a

difficult feat for the shops which

had to wear the downturn.

But she said once they are

completed, it will be a great

payoff.

TAKING THE HIT: CLOUD cafe and Korean Tapa Bar owner

Marty Moon says he has been affected by the road works.

“Making a much more

pedestrian-friendly village is part

of what the community wanted

to enable the area to thrive.

“It is going to be finished by

summer and it’s going to be

amazing.”

understand the upgrades have

been a disruptive time for the

community.

“The council and contractor

engaged with the local businesses

prior to construction to minimise

the impact of any disruption,”

she said.

Ms Ellis said it was agreed

early in the project that the works

would be undertaken during the

winter when visitor numbers are

generally lower.

She said weekend work was

limited to Saturday mornings

to ensure businesses received a

break from construction activity.

“Our team are talking with the

businesses on a weekly basis to

discuss issues and where possible

concerns.”

Bees to benefit from book

• By Jess Gibson

A FICTIONAL sun bear

illustrated by Lyttelton artist

Celia Allison is helping to save

bees.

Ms Allison, author Teresa

Kiddell and editor Sorcha

O’Malley are preparing to

launch the new children’s book

Gwendolyn Bear and the Honey

Bees this month, which is bee

awareness month.

In a lighthearted, rhyming tale

with an important message, the

book signifies the plight of bees

and the importance of looking

after the species to ensure the

survival of mankind.

“I’ve been up to the gift fair in

Auckland recently and there was

an enormous response to it,” Ms

Allison said.

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

will be a guest speaker at the first

launch event, which will be held

at The Lyttel Kiwi, 15 London St

on September 13.

“I’m really pleased I’ve got a

wonderful guest speaker, it will

be neat. People can come in, have

a drink, listen to her speak and

buy a book if they want to,” Ms

Allison said.

More than 5000 copies have

been printed so far and will be

sold in stores across the country

and in Christchurch including

Scorpio Books, Piccadilly Books

and Take Note Ferrymead.

GOOD CAUSE: Illustrator Celia Allison and author Teresa

Kiddell will launch their book Gwendolyn and the Honey Bees

in Lyttelton on September 13. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Fifty cents from each $22.99

book will go towards the Trees

for Bees NZ programme, which

aims to maximise the health and

survival of bees.

Gwendolyn Bear and the

Honey Bees has been a concept of

Ms Kiddell’s for 42 years and the

new book will be the first she has

ever published.

Ms Kiddell has been an

accountant for Ms Allison for

almost 20 years and pitched the

idea to her in January.

Ms Allison described her

illustrations as “a whimsical,

watercolour pencil style with a

lot of detail.”

She is best known for her

illustrations Cecily and Moa

Revival, which have been printed

onto merchandise such as

stationery and tea towels.

“I haven’t done a children’s

book for years, it’s going back a

couple of decades now,” she said.

Ms Kiddell said she is very

excited to have the book

published after having it “in the

back of her mind” for so long.

“I can’t believe it’s out.”

Traffic controls to stay

along Sumner Rd

• By Jess Gibson

THE PARKING restrictions

and traffic controls which

allowed Sumner Rd to be

safely re-opened will be made

permanent.

Temporary traffic

management measures, like

no stopping, no overtaking, no

right turn, no entry restrictions

and stop and give way signs,

enabled the road to reopen on

March 29.

Now those controls will be

made permanent after the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board approved the move at its

meeting on Monday.

The restrictions aim to make

Sumner Rd safer, as it is the

dangerous goods route for

trucks travelling to Lyttelton

and is popular with tourists,

sightseers and residents.

Section of planned controversial

walkway given the green light

• By Jess Gibson

A SMALL part of the

contentious Head to Head

Walkway route has been

approved.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board signed

off the section from Marine

Drive at Paradise Beach to the

Charteris Bay Yacht Club.

The city council received

mixed feedback from the

community on route options

between Orton Bradley Park

and the Charteris Bay Yacht

Club. The five options the

city council proposed for the

section through Charteris Bay

were opposed by the residents’

association.

However, there was wider support

for the small route which

has been approved.

During the board meeting on

Monday, two affected residents

spoke about their concerns

over how the track would be

developed. They are worried

about privacy, environmental

impacts, health and safety and

anti-social behaviour. The city

council is working to develop

the rest of the track in stages.

UP TO 3000 native

seedlings will be planted

in Port Levy to help

biodiversity flourish.

The Banks Peninsula

water zone committee

is holding a community

planting day at

Koukourārata Marae

on Saturday. One of the

committee’s priorities is

protecting and enhancing

environmental values.

The planting will help

protect the quality of the

stream on the marae’s

boundary, which runs

from the mountain to

the sea, as well as provide

shelter for native species.

Peter Ramsden,

of Koukourārata

Marae, said the project

was possible because

of funding from the

committee’s immediate

steps programme.

“The land is joint

between Koukourārata

and the wider community,

so there is some farmers’

land in there too,” he said.

“All trees going in will

be native, they always are,

but this is a big number

of trees, all because of the

IMS funding.”

Banks Peninsula

zone facilitator Shelley

Washington said the

planting will “complete

the connection” between

the Kakanui conservation

covenant and the coast.

“This stream or gully

could be seen as the

umbilical cord that

connects Kakanui, which

represents papatūānuku

and Te Ara Whanui

Makwhui (Koukourarata

Bay) which represents

Tangaroa,” she said.

“It is part of a goal that

FLOURISH:

Native

seedlings will

be planted

by the

community at

Port Levy on

Saturday.

Help plant out the peninsula

the Banks Peninsula is

recognised in the region

for showcasing flourishing

biodiversity.

“The committee

has many other goals,

such as supporting the

implementation of the

Whakaraupō catchment

management plan;

increasing community

understanding of mahinga

kai; minimising sediment

discharge into waterways,

and supporting freshwater

education programmes

and community-led

projects.”

•Anyone attending

the planting day should

take a pair of gardening

gloves, a spade, water

bottle and warm

clothing. Meet at the

Port Levy jetty, Puari Rd,

at 9am to walk to the

marae.

to a new $60 million premises

in Wigram. It sold the Woolston

site ‘as is where is’.

BL Family Trust representative

Vipan Garg said the demolition

is taking place in order to

clean up the “eyesore” which is

derelict and attracting vandals.

“It was a problem within the

community. People were getting

into the buildings, as they were

left unattended.”

National Steel, the main site

occupant, processes and sorts

metal on the empty

land and will continue

to use one building as a

“hub” which has been

deemed safe by an

engineer.

Fair Auto

Dismantlers, Lowe

Industries and NZ

Besthome Furniture

also occupy the shedlike

buildings on the

site, which have been

assessed as safe.

The BL Family Trust

has applied for a proposed

boundary adjustment to three

main lots on the site and wants

it to be processed by the city

council.

However, demolition project

manager Jarrad Smith said there

are no plans to sell or develop

the area at this stage.

He said the purpose

of the boundary

adjustment is to

square off the land

into three clear

parcels.

“Potentially,

at some point,

something will

happen with the site.

What that is and

when that is hasn’t

been determined.

Vipan Garg There is still a year

or so of work to be

done,”Mr Smith said.

The demolition may take up

to a year and the remaining

materials will be dumped at the

Kate Valley landfill.

Crime may be

going unreported

•From page 1

Lyttelton Police Sergeant

Franco Lovrich said incidents

may be going unreported.

“If it’s not life-threatening,

call 105 and report

incidents so we can

monitor what is going

on and target it as appropriate,”

he said.

Residents have been

taking to Facebook

pages such as Lyttelton

– Ain’t No Place I’d

Rather Be – to post

about crimes which

are mainly happening

outside of police presence

hours.

However, fewer

people have been

posting about crime

since the patrols started.

A community meeting

has been set up

to address residents’

concerns. It will be held

on Sunday, 5pm, in the

Lyttelton Arts Factory,

1 Sumner Rd.

The meeting will be

attended by Sergeant

Lovrich, residents and

community board members.

Tactical Response Team operations

director Shannon Mudge is

a Lyttelton resident and wanted

to put the concerns of fellow

residents at ease with help from

his colleague Shane Fuller.

Said Mr Mudge: “We’re not the

police, we’re just there to deter

any crime. If we can stop it before

it happens that’s a win for us.”

“If we can manage the situation

we will deal with it, but if it’s

out of our control we will log it

and report it to the police,” Mr

Mudge said.

“If there is one person breaking

in and we see it, by all means, we

will try and stop it.”

Mr Mudge said the patrols have

been quiet and they have not had

to deal with anything problematic

so far.

Superintendent Lane Todd

said police would be

interested in having

“further conversations

with them in

relation to how they

are going to operate.”

He said he would

rather them be affiliated

with one of the

community patrols

as they have a good

working relationship

with police.

Community

patrollers are volunteers

working

closely with police

as extra “eyes and

ears” to help build

safer communities.

Tactical Response

Team is licensed and

all of its security

guards are vetted,

selected, trained and

equipped to attend

incidents.

They patrol in a vehicle and on

foot in areas which are targeted

by offenders, dressed in black

uniforms showing the TRT logo.

Mr Mudge and Mr Fuller

are also offering “welfare

checks.”

“If someone is away for the

weekend and they want us to

look around their property to

make sure the doors and windows

are okay or if someone is

sick and they need a checking up

on, we will do that as well,” Mr

Mudge said.

Said Lyttelton Community

Association Ken Maynard: “It

would be better if the police were

doing this, but if they can’t or

won’t this is probably better than

not having anything at all.”

NEW FRIENDS: Vittoria and grace share a moment.

Bonding with cousins

I’M PLEASED to say that I

believe the seeds have been sown

for a grand ambition of mine.

A solid friendship between

Vittoria and her similarly aged,

Italian-based cousin Grace seems

to be growing.

I dearly hope the two will have

a lifelong intercontinental mateship

with constant communication,

visits and bilingual teenage

gossip. Although I dare say it

started off a little rocky.

We’re still in Italy and took a

quick trip to stay at my sister-inlaw

Christine’s place in Roveredo,

a town about 30min drive north

of Pravisdomini. It’s roughly

Rangiora-size and is pretty close

to the alps and a large United

States Air Force base.

Christine’s place is 2min up

the road (literally the same road)

from her son William, his partner

Sara and their daughter Grace’s

place. Although the two cousins

had briefly met a week after we

arrived, they were both tired and

we went out to eat soon after.

On our way to Christine’s, we

stopped in for a long and leisurely

lunch at William and Sara’s, giving

the two the perfect opportunity

to start bonding. But being

a toddler is tough they say, and

sharing is a hard lesson to learn.

So of course Vittoria rushed to

claim all of her cousin’s toys as

soon as we arrived.

As I’m a bloke, and because

there was a barbecue on, I made

a beeline for the beer and banter

outside, cleverly escaping the ensuing

screaming match between

the cousins. From what I did see

they seemed like they’d never

learn to peacefully coexist.

But, lo and behold, after Grace

had a nap and Vittoria had a

(huge) feed they were suddenly

like two different, non-screaming

people. There was even a few

cute wee cuddles. Although we

weren’t together all day, every day

while we were there, you could

tell they were growing fonder of

each other each time they met

up; touching hands, sharing toys

(mostly) and babbling away to

each other. Vittoria even learned

to say her cousin’s name.

What really proved it for me

was when we were saying our

goodbyes. Vittoria was waving

away in my arms to Grace as she

sat in the back of her mum’s car.

As the car started to move and

Vittoria realised her new friend

was leaving, she burst into tears

(the real ones with the big bottom

lip) and reached out for the car.

I love seeing a plan come

together, especially mine.

mitre 10 mega ferrymead

lend a helping hand

On thursday 8th August, the Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead team

lent a helping hand to the Diamond Harbour croquet club.

The Croquet Club had reached out to Mitre 10 MEGA

Ferrymead asking for assistance in re-levelling their

greens, as overtime, and due to an earthquake, some

patches had sunk and warped. Given that the youngest

club member was 70, there was a need for some

spring-chickens to come in for the heavy lifting.

After the original date was postponed due to heavy

rain, the Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead team finally made

tracks for the beautiful Diamond Harbour setting on

Banks Peninsula. The day began with a quick croquet

lesson, then unloading the 2-tonne tipper truck, thanks

to Kennards Hire, full of soil. Once

the truck was emptied it was

obvious that the job required

more soil, so a couple of the crew

headed back to base to pick

up another load, while the rest

began spreading the soil.

The club’s members kindly

served up a delicious homemade

morning tea, lunch and

afternoon snack.

After a full day of shovelling, raking, rolling and

smoothing it was clear that the job was a little bigger

than anticipated. So, the team finished up in the

evening and decided to come back for a couple of

hours the following week to add the finishing touch –

sewing the grass seed.

The Diamond Harbour Croquet Club were so grateful

for the work that went into the project. They are lovely

people that put on a delicious feast in return for the

work. I’m sure the team will be back (once the grass has

grown) to try their hand at a game of croquet!

We were thrilled to learn that Mitre 10 Mega offered a

community service that could help smooth the surface

and improve the grass quality. The price was providing

lunch, morning and afternoon teas for a group of six

very pleasant and hardworking staff.

We are thrilled that our biggest challenge for next

season is to relearn how to hit the ball straight on a

Tasty Bites

Creating healthy food to reduce stress

healthy. In everyday life,

stress plays a role in alerting

us to life’s occasional

dangers and challenges, so

Mazda convertible still has wow factor

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I HAD TO look a long way back

in my diary to work out when

I last drove a manual gearbox

evaluation car. It was October last

year and it wasn’t actually a car, it

was a ute.

However, I was surprised and

delighted to pick up the latest

specification Mazda’s MX-5 twoseat

convertible, it was a six-speed

manual and is the subject of this

evaluation. It was also my favourite

of the series, the RF Limited

with its retractable hard-top.

The MX-5 needs no introduction,

it has led the way in affordable

performance models and

brings a smile to the face of all

who drive it.

There are three models in the

MX-5 range, the entry-level roadster

soft-top which gets a 1.5-litre

engine and starts at $41,895, and

there are two 2-litre models, one

is a soft-top at $49,195, the other

is the RF Limited, and at $53,745

it would most certainly be my

choice if I was in the convertible

market.

It’s fair to say, I’m not a huge

convertible fan, Christchurch’s

weather isn’t perfect for open top

driving, but the folding hard-top

is a work of art, the car looks

stunning, the convertible process

is quick, the mechanism is brilliant,

and when you are driving

with the roof closed over you’d

think for all money that it was

permanently sealed.

I’m not exaggerating when I

refer to the MX-5 as being genius.

It is adorably desirable, and is

probably the most amount of fun

you can get for the money. What

makes it so special is the engineering

layout, it is rear-wheeldrive,

and with its low ride height

and near perfect 50:50 weight

split there is a fully involving

driving feel.

The MX-5 is a result of continual

development, and in

2-litre form it has just had a safety

specification upgrade, it also

gets more power – up to 135kW

from 118kW and more torque at

205Nm, up from 200Nm. Perhaps

what makes the engine even

more exciting is that it is now

calibrated to rev more freely, the

point of maximum revolutions

has been raised to 7000rpm from

6000rpm, and it will explore the

entire rev band willingly.

As a consequence, the engine is

constantly eager – in all gears – it

is throttle sensitive and an absolute

joy to be behind the wheel of.

In terms of performance,

the 2-litre MX-5 will launch

in around 6sec, and will move

through an overtaking opportunity

in 4.5sec (80-120km/h).

While these figures aren’t electrifying,

they are the foundation

of an exciting package, the way

the mechanicals combine to provide

the feel-good factor makes

you think that speed is greater

and, of course, sitting so low to

the ground the feeling of speed is

constant.

It must be considered as well

that in the manual gearbox model

the feel through the shift mechanism

is exciting in itself, the lever

has short throws both up and

down and through the gate, it

feels delightful and is one of the

reasons I like manual gearboxes so

much, the feeling of involvement

is constant. If the thought of using

a clutch is scary, the pedal on the

MX-5 is delicate with perfect feel,

the thought of stall need not be

considered.

Even though the MX-5 would

be at home on the Port Hills

Elevator Pitch

by Linwood Barclay

It all begins on a Monday, when four people board an elevator in a Manhattan office

tower. Each presses a button for their floor, but the elevator proceeds, non-stop, to the

top. Once there, it stops for a few seconds, and then plummets. Right to the bottom

of the shaft. It appears to be a horrific, random tragedy. But then, on Tuesday, it

happens again, in a different Manhattan skyscraper. And when Wednesday brings yet

another high-rise catastrophe, one of the most vertical cities in the world – and the

nation’s capital of media, finance, and entertainment – is plunged into chaos. Clearly,

this is anything but random. This is a cold, calculated bid to terrorize the city. And it’s

working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men and women working

in offices across the city refuse leave their homes. Commerce

has slowed to a trickle. Emergency calls to the top floors of

apartment buildings go unanswered. Who is behind this? What

do these deadly acts of sabotage have to do with the fingerless

body found on the High Line? Two seasoned New York detectives

and a straight-shooting journalist must race against time to find

the answers . . . Pulsating with tension, Elevator Pitch is a riveting

tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible . . . and will

chill readers to the bone.

A Single Thread

by Tracy Chevalier

If she was to make a mark on the world, she would have to do so in another

way… It is 1932, and the losses of the First World War are still keenly felt.

Violet Speedwell, mourning for both her fiancé and her brother and regarded

by society as a ‘surplus woman’ unlikely to marry, resolves to escape her

suffocating mother and strike out alone.

A new life awaits her in Winchester. Yes, it is one of draughty boarding-houses

and sidelong glances at her naked ring finger from younger colleagues; but it is

also a life gleaming with independence and opportunity. Violet falls in with the

broderers, a disparate group of women charged with embroidering kneelers for

the Cathedral, and is soon entwined in their lives and their secrets. As the almost

unthinkable threat of a second Great War appears on the horizon Violet collects a

few secrets of her own that could just change everything…

Warm, vivid and beautifully orchestrated, A Single Thread reveals one of our

finest modern writers at the peak of her powers.

roads, I’m loathe to use those

routes these days, there is a lot of

foot traffic and too many cyclists,

also speed restrictions are frustrating.

That being the case, I took

the test car on my usual highway

loop just east of the Malvern

Hills, taking in the twisty section

out of the Waimakariri River

gorge.

The wee MX-5 has extraordinary

handling, it steers with

absolute precision and is entertaining

through the rear when

power is applied forcibly. It has

been designed so that oversteer

is easily accessible, however, the

electronic traction control system

intervenes, although it is not

overly invasive, the fun factor

is still available. Of course, TCS

can be switched off, but even

with it activated the MX-5 is

still the handling champion, it is

entertaining and that is what has

always aroused buyers.

It wouldn’t be fair if I closed

this evaluation without mentioning

fuel use. While the MX-5 is

largely seen as a model which

entices throttle use, it still has

respectable fuel use statistics, with

a combined cycle claim by Mazda

of 6.9-litres per 100km (41mpg).

My time in the test car returned

figures of a respectable 8l/100km

(35mpg), which was good considering

I constantly applied heavy

throttle pressure. At 100km/h the

engine is turning over at a steady

2500rpm, providing an instantaneous

figure of 5.1l/100km

(55mpg).

As much as I delighted in the

RF Limited and all it represents,

I’m still fingers crossed that we

haven’t seen the end of the rotary

era. An RX-8 is very much on

my wish list, and if another

generation RX model should

roll off the production lines then

it’s fair to say I’m very much

interested.

However, in the interim it is

great cars like the MX-5 that

will keep petrol heads like me

entertained with their wow

factor.

REAL ESTATE

Private, peaceful

Purau rural retreat

52 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $850,000 plus GST if any

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 living rooms | 13ha | Listing Number: 9736

Seldom do properties such as this come

to the market but retiring vendors of 30

years have decided the time has come.

This is a wonderful location, peaceful

and private with wonderful bird song. Set

on 13.1369 hectares or 32.5 acres approx.

this charming 100m 2 home is both easycare

and warm. Commanding beautiful

views of the Purau Valley, Purau Bay and

Mt Evans, if you are looking for peace and

privacy then this one could be for you.

Set well off the road the house has

two double bedrooms, two living areas,

lovely decking and one bathroom. North

East facing and sheltered with a garage/

workshop adjacent to the house. The

garden is easy care and the land is a

mixture of pasture in five paddocks for

grazing, some bush and about 250 approx.

30 year old pine trees ready for harvesting.

The property is well fenced and has an

excellent water supply, a small stream and

a natural pond. Further down the driveway

there is a set of yards, a four bay implement

shed, a tractor shed with high stud and a

large high stud workshop with three phase

power. There is also a semi derelict house

from about the 1930s on the property.

This is an idyllic location and perfect for

a retiring farmer, someone wanting to get

into the firewood business or someone with

a portable mill to make use of all the trees.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a

highly desirable destination as it is so

useable being close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by such

a safe swimming beach are defying all the

odds and selling fast generally as they come

up very seldom.

Excellent swimming, boating, walking

and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick

and easy access to Lyttelton via the

Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. five

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this

a fun filled place to visit. Properties here

make an excellent investment and Purau

Bay and valley is a truly magical place to

live.
