• By Jacob Page

WOOLSTON BOXING Club

trainer Holly Sullivan is on

the shortlist to mentor New

Zealand’s best amateur fighters

at the Olympics in Tokyo next

year.

The 32-year-old started

boxing to stay fit when she

was a Canterbury tennis

representative and national

football trialist 14 years ago and

fell in love with the sport.

Sullivan is the only woman

in New Zealand who is an

internationally qualified trainer,

which means if Woolstonbased

Olympic boxing

prospects Tegan Clark or

Trevor Swainson make the

New Zealand team, she will be

Tokyo-bound with them.

“Both of them are on the

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Olympic prospects list and

so if any of my boxers get in,

because I’m a woman with

the qualifications, they want

a balance of male and female

managers and chaperones

there.”

Successful slant on popcorn

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FOUR LINWOOD College

students have made their mark

in the popcorn business after

being recognised in a regional

enterprise competition.

PopCoin was named the winner

of the Canterbury Young

Enterprise Product launch recently,

which was sponsored by

Ara Institute of Canterbury.

The business, which creates

freshly flavoured popcorn was

founded by year 13 students –

Riccarton’s Eileen Prasad and

Arnie Ferreras, New Brighton’s

Tara Blackmore and Redcliff’s

Meghan Kerr.

The idea was formed

after the students took part

in the national Young Enterprise

scheme – a programme

aimed to inspire young people

to become involved in business.

As part of the scheme, their

challenge was to create a business

idea. The students were

debating between a salad bowl

or popcorn.

After undertaking research,

the students found there was a

demand for popcorn.

The students receive full profit

from the business and have

made $100 in the four months it

has been running stalls for.

They run stalls at ARA, New

Brighton Seaside Market, The

Riccarton Sunday Market and

will be selling at Turanga on

September 15.

The flavours the students

have created include savoury

herb and cheese, salted caramel,

chocolate popcorn and caramel

banana.

“We as a group have got a lot

of interest in making food so

we used our own knowledge

and came up with the flavours,”

Eileen said.

Eileen, the mastermind behind

the flavours, was last year’s

winner of the National Secondary

School Culinary Challenge.

She is hoping to go into the

hospitality industry either as a

chef or management position

or study business at Canterbury

University.

Each student plays an

important role in the

business with Arnie as the

finance manager, Tara as the

communication and marketing

manager and Meghan as the

production manager.

Social studies teacher Richard

Jolly said the product has been

so well-crafted they have sold

out every time they have gone

to market. The quirky name for

the business emerged after the

students were joking around

about the term “popcoin” which

featured in a children’s cartoon

called The Big Lez Show.

In Brief

FLOODING PROBLEM

Concerns have been raised

about flooding at the Fred Price

Courts car park on Palmers Rd

in New Brighton. The Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

has asked city council staff to

investigate how the water level

can be reduced in the housing

complex car park.

BIN MAY BE KEPT

The North Beach Residents’

Association has met with

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board members and city council

staff to discuss keeping a

rubbish bin at the North Beach

car park. The association has

previously raised concerns about

the board’s request for all the

rubbish bins there to be replaced

by seagull-proof Big Belly Bins.

NAME CHANGE

The Northshore Residents’

Association has changed its

name to the Waimairi Beach

Residents’ Association. The

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board was advised of this at a

meeting last week.

FLYING FOX

City council staff have been

asked to investigate replacing

or repairing the flying fox

at Thomson Park, New

Brighton, so it can be made the

appropriate height and width.

Know Local, Go Local

a message from principal geoff siave

60 Shirley Road, Shirley

03 385 2229 office@sis.school.nz

www.sis.school.nz

Shirley-Intermediate-School

Kia Ora, Talofa, Greetings. As a child I went to the

local primary school, about 600m from home. I

can still drive through that neighbourhood and

name who lived in each house on the school route.

Mrs Miller, at the corner dairy was an institution;

Everyone knew her, and vice versa - or so it seemed.

For many of us adults, the benefits of living locally,

knowing and using local services, seem a thing

of the past. In these internet-soaked, heavily

consumerised, car-dominated times our children

need relevance, community connections and a

sense of belonging more than ever.

As we seek to enable children to lead full and

satisfying lives, we fuse academic learning, with

real life application and plenty of opportunity

for constructive interaction with peers and our

community. Our curriculum is based on relevant

learning for life through study topics such as

Journeys,

Financial

Literacy,

Sustainability,

and Chemistry

in Everyday Life.

Relevance makes

learning so much

easier.

We are looking forward to major building

renovations at school. We are also very pleased that

Banks Avenue School is being rebuilt on the old

Shirley Boys High School site immediately adjacent

to our school. Community connections.

Feel free to make contact for a chat and look around

the school.

Taitu’uga Geoff Siave - Principal

Flax Weaving

Once a week for the past six weeks women from the

Kahu Collective (Kathy, Lisa and Corabelle) have been

visiting Shirley Intermediate School to help children

in the bilingual class - Te Tahu Rua Reo - use the flax

which grows on the school grounds to learn about

working with harakeke (flax). The children have

been involved in the lengthy process of preparing,

cleaning, harvesting, stripping, sizing,softening, boiling

and dyeing the harakeke (flax). The project aims to

complete two woven circular whāriki or mats to be

on display in the school hall. The class also engaged

in making bracelets

and headbands from

harakeke. As part of a

community partnership

the Kahu Collective

is currently based at

Shirley Intermediate.

This will provide further

opportunities for pupils.

Shirley District Music School

SDMS has been operating from Shirley Intermediate

for over thirty years, offering music tuition for primary

school children in the wider Shirley area. Itinerant

music teachers tutor the children after school - often at

their own school, or at Shirley Intermediate - the home

of SDMS. Many children have progressed to being

accomplished musicians. Last week twenty musicians

from the SDMS took part in the first competition held

in many years. The children came from Shirley Primary

School, Shirley Intermediate School, Banks Avenue

School, Mairehau Primary School, Marshlands School,

Waitākiri School, and St Francis of Assisi School - all

part of the Shirley District Music School.

Ōtākaro ARTS festival - Performing

Arts, Visual crafts, Craft

The Ōtākaro Kahui Ako - has organised an amazing

week of arts activities for children across the seven

member school and multiple early childhood centres.

The activities run from Monday 16 September until

Friday 20 September and include basketmaking,

beeswax wraps, pottery, drawing, Intaglio printmaking

and a circus workshop are some of the twenty five artrelated

activities available for the children to choose

from during the festival week. Shirley Intermediate is

the venue for two events as is taking part in art, dance

and performance activities.

School trip to Dunedin

A regular part of the Shirley Intermediate calendar has

been the biennial trip to Dunedin during term four. The

children enjoy a first taste of university life by staying

at one of the university hostels - in their own rooms,

fully catered. The host of learning activities during the

trip south and while in Dunedin include visiting the

albatross colony, Steam punk in Oamaru, Moeraki,

Olveston House, hostel life. The camaraderie of shared

experiences away from home is hard to beat.

Swimming Pools

The number of schools with swimming pools is

continuously reducing. This makes the fact that SIS

has two pools (a 15m and a 25m pool) all the more

remarkable. High drowning statistics and the expense,

inconvenience, and inadequacy of the alternative

options for schools emphasise the values of our pools.

At SIS children are able to practice swimming on most

summer weekdays. Surrounding contributing schools

are invited to use

the 15m pool at their

convenience, and

many local families

have opportunity

to hire keys for the

summer after Labour

Weekend. The school

was also the base for

the St Albans Swim

Club for several

years after the

earthquakes.

Community Opportunity - from the

Principal

From time to time we make “suggestions” (some call

them “appeals”!) about how people can help out at

school. People actually enjoy helping out and it’s

mutually beneficial because of the social and local

interactions and the satisfaction of having played your

part in making a positive difference. Here are the details:

Colour the Playground -

• Saturday 19 October (the first Saturday of Term Four)

• 8.30am to midday-ish

• Bring a fence brush or suitable roller or paint tray if

you have them

• A bbq lunch will be provided - all welcome

• The back-up day is Saturday 26 October.

This will be a great time to muck in and get to know

your neighbours while making a positive difference to

your local intermediate school.

Building Progression at SIS

For two years we have been declaring “rebuild

coming”; good things take time!

Those driving past our North Parade boundary will see

that two prefabricated buildings have appeared there

recently. Yes, these are the first physical sign of our

new build.

The design of the new school includes:

• New classrooms facing Shirley Road - including a

whare, “maker spaces”, food room, design area and,

of course, teaching spaces

• New administration and reception area accessed

from Shirley Road

• Creation of two-way

vehicle access from

Shirley Road

• Removal of two rear

classrooms and

modernisation of all

remaining classrooms

• Retention of school hall

and adjoining rooms

Park’s apology hard to accept

•From page 1

Mr Park has apologised for the

no show and proposed he meet

with the community on September

25.

Mr Park told Pegasus Post

he withdrew due to a “critical,

personal” meeting.

Mr Park

would not say

what the meeting

was for.

Mrs Chapman

said Mr

Park’s apology

was hard to

accept given

Darryll Park

this.

“He didn’t

say what it [the meeting] was

about, what the urgency was, so

it would have been nice to know

that, he hasn’t given us

the subject matter of that

meeting.”

She said it would be up to

the services trust’s members to

decide if they wanted Mr Park to

meet with them.

Mr Park attended the Canterbury

Employers’ Chamber of

Commerce debate on Wednesday

night.

At the debate he questioned

why the city council was spending

millions on cycleways when

roads in the east needed fixing,

labelling it as “not bloody good

enough.”

However, his last-minute

withdrawal from the services

trust’s debate earlier in the day

was described by organiser Betty

Chapman as a “slap in the face”

for people in the east wanting

roading and other improvements

after the earthquakes.

Former mayor Garry Moore,

who chaired the debate, also

criticised the no show.

In a Facebook post, Mr Park

also criticised a Dalziel-led council

for neglecting the east and

failing to look after the basics.

Said Mrs Chapman: “It’s a bit

of a slap in the face because a lot

of people were here today to see

Darryll. Out in the east we know

Lianne, she had been our MP

for years, the people came to see

Darryll to hear what he had to

say.”

Mr Moore questioned Mr

Park’s commitment.

“To me, that showed no commitment

to being mayor because

if you are running for mayor you

have to go to every meeting,” he

said.

Mr Park’s absence put a real

dampener on the debate, he said.

“Is he only prepared to talk to

the business community and not

the people of town?”

Mr Park said the criticism he

received for missing the debate

was “unfair.”

“I don’t think it’s fair at all.

One instance where I couldn’t

make a meeting and yet, I’ve

committed to being out there in

the east and have been out there

on several occasions.

“I can’t undo something that

happened and was unavoidable

and I had to be at the other

meeting.”

for Canty

STAR MEDIA, publisher of

Pegasus Post, launched a new

website last week.

Starnews.co.nz will

cover the latest breaking news

from across the Canterbury

region and of course

Christchurch.

And to celebrate the launch we

will be giving away $100 vouchers

each week for the next month.

This week it is fuel, followed by

Said Star Media regional

“Starnews will be an essential

source for Cantabrians to get

news from. Our focus of course

is on Canterbury news, but we

will also have news from across

New Zealand, international news,

sport, politics, motoring reviews,

lifestyle and more.

“Our point of difference is

that we will be using our news

teams from Kaikoura, Amberley,

Rangiora, Christchurch and

Ashburton to provide topical

local news relevant to your

community.

“This is something that’s

missing from the national sites

that Cantabrians have told us they

want.”

Renew Brighton

gets $20k grant

from council

THE RENEW Brighton project

has received a $20,000 boost to

promote resilience in the area.

The grant came from the city

council-administered community

resilience partnership fund,

which was launched in 2017 by

Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

Renew Brighton’s aim is to

connect community groups in the

area and enable participation on

issues that matter to residents.

Other groups to benefit from the

grants include:

•The Barrier-Free New Zealand

Trust, which has received $20,000

to help implement the accessibility

charter.

•The Mt Pleasant Memorial

Community Centre and Residents

Association, which has been

granted $48,880 so it can employ

someone to help run new community

activities.

•The Papanui Youth

Development Trust, which will

receive $7000 each year for the

next two years so it can set up

a youth group for people with

behavioural challenges.

•The Parenting Place Charitable

Trust, which has received $18,330

for its ‘building awesome whānau’

parenting courses.

•And The Exchange

Christchurch Trust, which has

received $27,682.

Training world-class boxers

•From page 1

“I’m currently a star one

international licence coach and

there’s a chance I’ll have to sit

my star two beforehand.”

The prospect of two of her

boxers competing at the New

Zealand trials in March will

mean a different structure over

the summer months.

“I’ve told Tegan and Trev that

they’ll box up until the end of

November and then have the

whole of December off.

“They need a rest month and

with the trials in February/

March they’ll need a six-week,

well-conditioned programme by

that time.

Sullivan said she started

training at the Woolston Boxing

Club gym once a week about

the time she purchased her

first house at the age of 18 on

Mackworth St.

“I started going once a week

under Steve Henry . . . and I

asked if I could fight and he

said that I could start turning

up more if I wanted that and I

thought it was fair enough.”

It wasn’t until she hurt her

shoulder in a bout – which led to

three surgeries and a nine-year

absence from that ring – that

Sullivan considered coaching.

Over the past decade, she and

a group of dedicated volunteers

qualified trainer.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

have built the club’s numbers

up to more than 60, including

23 who are allowed to box

competitively. In spite of her

success, Sullivan said she is too

busy looking forward to look

back. “There’s so much going

on right now and so much I’m

looking forward to that I’m

more excited about the future.

Aranui performer teaching Pasifika heritage

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN ARANUI’S Talia-Rae

Mavaega travels to primary

schools nationally as a performer

she often finds it “disappointing”

to learn how little children know

about Pasifika’s rich culture.

Having toured nationally with

Duffy Books in Homes, she has

found some schoolchildren have

never heard of Samoa or Tonga or

where New Zealand is located in

the Pacific.

In a bid to educate children on

Pasifika heritage, Mavaega is one

of three performers from theatre

company Y NOT travelling to

schools across Canterbury to

share some of Samoa, Tonga and

New Zealand’s most well-known

legends.

Directed by Gregory Cooper,

the theatre company has collaborated

with The Court Theatre

to present O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua

(The Journey of the Gods).

A capella chorus bound for Sweet Adelines in New Orleans

• By Claire Booker

SINGERS IN the Christchurch

City Chorus are packing their

bags and warming up their

voices for the Sweet Adelines

World Championship in New

Orleans.

The group was founded in

1985 and the women sing in a

four-part harmony a capella

style and have been national

champions 11 times – but this

time they are back representing

the country on an international

stage.

The last time the group

performed internationally was

2016 in Las Vegas where they

placed fifth and received the

“most entertaining” award.

The chorus is made up

of 130 women from across

Christchurch, with members also

hailing from Nelson, Dunedin,

Invercargill, Palmerston North,

Auckland and Australia.

Ellie Sutton, of Cashmere, is

one of the chorus members and

said she is fizzing in anticipation

The multilingual production

will be touring across Canterbury

primary schools until Friday and

will feature Jake Arona and Mana

Tatafu, alongside Mavaega.

When asked if education on

the Pacific could

be better, she said:

“I think there is

always room for

improvement, I

just think Pasifika

culture isn’t

implemented as

much.”

But Mavaega said:

“The cool thing is

most of the kids

once they are given

the opportunity to learn a new

word or whatever they just jump

on it which is awesome.”

Based on a fusion of myths, the

O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua (The Journey

of the Gods) follows the story

of demigod Maui’s quest to prove

himself worthy of becoming a

fully-fledged God.

Mavaega, who is of Samoan

heritage, will play the role of Sina

based on the famous Polynesian

myth Sina and the Eel, which

explains the origins of the first

coconut tree.

But she said the

message she is hoping

children will walk away

with is to make the

right choices, be kind to

others and be the best

they can be.

The message stems

from when Maui (who

is based on a demigod

from Maori mythology)

is faced with the decision

to either gain for himself or

help people forever.

Mavaega said while the majority

of schools it is travelling to

may not have the population of

Pacific students, it is “awesome” it

can share with children who have

not experienced the culture.

said.

Papanui’s Nicky McCaughan

is the group’s visual director,

and she is in charge of the

choreography and showmanship

of the chorus.

SPELL-BINDING: Talia-Rae Mavaega is in the new show O Le

Malaga Fa’a’Atua (The Journey of the Gods), which is touring

around Canterbury primary schools.

The chorus will fly to New

Orleans this week, and the

competition will run from

September 16 to 21.

Redwood resident Sharyn

Glassey is excited and feels

“blessed” to be a part of the

chorus.

PEGASUS POST

“Never in my wildest dreams

did I ever think I would be

representing our beautiful

country in an international

competition,” she said.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the

chorus is excited for the thrill of

representing New Zealand on

the international stage.

“It has taken three solid years

of learning and performing

songs to reach this pinnacle time.

The chorus’ aim is to better our

fifth placing in Las Vegas the

last time we represented New

Zealand in 2016,” she said.

“It is exciting, extremely

focused, intensely pleasurable

work, right up until the moment

on stage when they announce:

‘We are ready for our next

contestant, from Christchurch,

New Zealand, under the

direction of Virginia Humphrey-

Taylor, the Christchurch City

Chorus,’ I live for this moment

in my life,” Ms Humphrey-Taylor

said.

Charity shops seen as a rubbish dump

• By Laura Hitchon

PEOPLE ARE discarding

damaged goods and other

rubbish outside charity shops to

avoid paying refuse station fees.

Charity shop staff are turning

up to work on Monday mornings

to discover large piles of damaged

goods lying on their front

door step and, although some

items are saleable, many are not.

St John Opportunity Shop

volunteer Brian North said many

people dropped off the goods at

their Addington store at night

or during the weekend when the

shop was closed.

“We would prefer that people

drop off their goods during the

daytime when we are able to

inspect them.

“People think that just because

they donate something, we will

accept it but we need to be able

to sell these items and if they’re

damaged, we can’t,” he said.

Salvation Army Family Store

Hornby shop manager Terry

Murray said some people genuinely

believed the goods they

were donating were in an acceptable

condition but many people

knew the goods were rubbish

and donated them anyway.

Damaged goods being donated

included lounge suites, drawers,

mattresses, tables, chairs,

ANNOYED: Salvation Army Family Store Hornby shop manager Terry Murray

(right) and volunteer Neville Walton stand next to the overflowing rubbish skip

filled with donated goods they cannot sell.

sporting equipment, crockery,

glassware, artwork, books, clothing

and shoes.

The money generated from

selling donated goods goes back

into the charity to help people

in need, however, this was being

jeopardised by the cost of having

to dump other people’s rubbish.

Mr Murray said they emptied

their skip about three times a

week which cost them about

$140 each time.

“One of the biggest expenses

we have is taking damaged

goods to the dump.”

Mr Murray said the cost of

taking rubbish to the refuse

station was a possible cause of

people dumping their unwanted

goods at charity shops.

“Many people don’t own a

trailer and can’t afford to hire

one let alone afford to take their

rubbish to the dump, so they just

leave it on the charity’s doorstep,”

he said.

To dump one tonne of general

waste, the EcoCentral website

lists it at $253.40.

WASTE: Salvation Army staff members Leane

Robertson (left) and Karen White with dirty,

stained and faded clothing.

PHOTOS: LAURA HITCHON

Mr Murray said it would be

beneficial if the city council

collected large waste from the

charity once a month and subsidised

the dumping fees to ease

pressure.

A city council spokesperson

said they expected residents to

dispose of their unwanted items

responsibly and that people

should only make donations to

charity stores that are open, able

and willing to take their items.

The spokesperson said dumping

damaged goods at charity

bins or store fronts could be seen

as illegal dumping and could

incur a fine for the person disposing

of the litter.

“The kerbside collection

service is a standard service

funded by ratepayers and we

are unable to provide additional

services above the entitlement of

a property.”

The spokesperson said

unwanted goods could be

disposed of at one of three

EcoDrop recycling centres across

the city at a cost.

Feral pigs hogging Bottle Lake

• By Sophie Cornish

THIS IS what you may come

across on a weekend stroll in

Bottle Lake Forest.

This photo of a feral pig

was posted to the People’s

Independent Republic of

New Brighton Facebook page

along with a discussion about

sightings of the animal in the

10km recreation reserve, which

stretches from Burwood to the

coast.

But before you squeal – city

council head of parks Andrew

Rutledge is reassuring the threat

to people is low.

However, they should be

avoided if spotted, he said.

No reports have been received

by city council of the animals

attacking, but they are a

nuisance.

“Feral pigs are a threat to sites

with high biodiversity values,

as they can damage indigenous

plants and animals. In this case

they are mostly a nuisance to the

landowners in the area, where

they roam between properties,”

he said.

The pigs have been present in

the Lower Styx area, including

Bottle Lake Forest for some time,

Mr Rutledge said.

“They are very mobile animals

and can cover large distances,

moving across private and

publicly-owned land.”

Kainga resident Zac Cooper

frequently runs around the forest

with his dog and said he has

spotted the nuisance animals on

multiple occasions.

“It was a few months back now

. . . one was down by the Waimak

River, in the forest alongside

the river’s edge. Another was

just up by Spencerville . . . my

friend’s neighbour has trapped

and killed a few, so he put one up

on the barbeque one afternoon

. . . apparently, the sightings are

getting much more frequent,” he

said.

Mr Rutledge said the pigs have

been factored into the parks’ pest

control programme.

SPOTTED:

A feral pig

in Bottle

Lake

Forest,

which city

council

staff say

are a low

threat to

people,

but

should be

avoided.

“Monitoring is in place for

when these animals roam on

to council reserves . . . it’s very

hard to determine population

numbers as the animals cover a

large area.”

The feral pigs, which are

omnivorous, are believed to be

widespread throughout the Canterbury

region in suitable habitat

types. In May, wild sows, a type

of feral pig, were caught on camera

in a native bush reserve, near

Gibraltar Rock in the Port Hills.

The Summit Road Society

said the pigs were becoming

a problem with their

rooting habits damaging the

undergrowth of the native forest.

Old Skellerup factory

demolition under way

• By Jess Gibson

A LARGE portion of the

remaining abandoned Skellerup

factory is being demolished at its

former Woolston site.

The BL Family Trust own

the 59,801 sq m section of land

on Garlands Rd and is in the

process of clearing more than

70 per cent of the earthquakedamaged,

asbestos-filled

buildings.

Skellerup moved out in 2016

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.

CLEAN-UP: More than 70 per

cent of the derelict buildings

at the former Skellerup

factory site in Woolston

are being knocked down.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

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,”Mr Smith said.

The demolition may take up to

a year and the materials will be

dumped at Kate Valley landfill.

Exotic food with the least hassle

If you are going to cook

for a large dinner party,

organisation and preparation

are key, starting with

working out a menu well

ahead of the event. Try

including this tasty Asianinfluenced

starter to your

list

Tamarind chilli crispy-skin

salmon with green mango

herb salad

Serves 4

Ingredients

600g salmon fillets, cut into 4cm

cubes, patted dry with paper

towels

Sea salt

Fresh cracked black pepper

Crispy shallots

Oil

Tamarind chilli dressing

5-10g large dried red chillies

2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced in

a mortar and pestle with a pinch

of salt

5g belacan (shrimp paste)

65g gula melaka, shaved

25g tamarind pulp, soaked in

150ml

hot water, rendered and sieved

1½ Tbsp lemon juice

2 large kaffir lime leaves, finely

julienned

Green mango herb salad

½ telegraph cucumber or one

lebanese cucumber, unpeeled,

shaved into ribbons

1 green mango, peeled, shaved

into ribbons

1 small bunch coriander leaves

1 small bunch Thai basil leaves

2 wing beans, finely sliced

Squeeze of lemon juice

Pinch of sugar

Olive oil

Directions

Season the fish with salt and

pepper and a drizzle of oil.

Place the soaked dried chillies

and garlic in a food processor

and blend until a fine paste.

Heat two tablespoons of oil in

a small saucepan over medium

heat, add the shrimp paste and

mash with a wooden spatula.

Cook for 1min until the shrimp

paste becomes fragrant and

starts to toast.

Add the chilli garlic paste

and continue to cook, stirring

frequently, until fragrant.

Add the gula melaka and cook

until dark, glossy and sticky.

Slowly pour in the tamarind

puree. Cook until slightly

thickened, then stir in the lemon

juice and sprinkle on the kaffir

lime leaves. Remove from heat

and set aside.

Heat a non-stick fry pan over

high heat. Place the fish pieces

skin side down evenly around

the pan and cook until crisp and

golden.

To ensure that the skin is

evenly crispy, you may need to

gently press with a spatula to

keep the skin flat on the pan.

Turn over, and cook the other

side until three-quarter cooked.

Pour over the tamarind chilli

sauce and toss very gently to just

coat. Be careful not to break up

the fish pieces.

Combine the salad ingredients,

and dress with lemon juice,

sugar and olive oil just before

serving.

Transfer the fish to a serving

plate along with all the sauce

and top with the green mango,

cucumber and herb salad.

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and

serve immediately.

Note: Adjust the quantity

of the large, red dried chillies

according to your taste. Also,

leave the seeds in if you like

the dish extra spicy, otherwise,

deseed them.

In any case, soak the chillies in

hot water until softened before

using them.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Your

car light

95

gasson st

specialists

Long-established car light specialists,

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their

lights from a new address – just around the

corner from their familiar Brougham Street

site.

The business moved from 325 Brougham

Street to 95 Gasson Street, where they offer

a brighter showroom, easier access for their

customers and plenty of off-street parking.

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,

“and continuing to provide our customers

with an extensive range of replacement

lights for most Japanese, European and

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights

are fully checked and in perfect working

order.”

If they don’t have it in stock, they can

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of

car, truck and commercial parts.

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair

service for headlights, with their skilled

staff of three having 80 years’ experience in

the automotive trade between them. They

also specialise in light adjuster and light

conversion of American car lights and their

repair service includes plastic

welding, drying out, and

re-silvering, re-sealing

and lens refurbishment.

Their services can also

be arranged through

your own local garage or

workshop.

So, next time you

need replacement car

lights, call into Braxton Car

Lights’ bright new showroom,

95 Gasson Street, phone 0800 225 483,

email carlights@carlights.co.nz.

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.

To view this property please contact

Tim Dunningham of Min Sarginson Real

Estate (Licensed Agent REAA 2008),
