Doing it for his twin sister<br />

Nico’s race to<br />

raise suicide<br />

awareness<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-<br />

Harding<br />

PARA-SWIMMER Nico<br />

Wildbore usually has his<br />

mind on winning in the pool.<br />

But today the 17-year-old<br />

will only be thinking of his<br />

twin sister Bethany, who<br />

tragically died of a suspected<br />

suicide last year.<br />

As part of World Suicide<br />

Prevention Day, Nico is<br />

set to swim 16km to raise<br />

money for the Mental Health<br />

Foundation.<br />

He wants people to talk<br />

about mental health and<br />

wishes more than anything<br />

his sister had opened up about<br />

what she was going through.<br />

“Obviously she had very<br />

bad depression, she was losing<br />

a lot of weight but she kept it<br />

private. I didn’t really know<br />

about it until everything<br />

happened,” he said.<br />

‘Dangerous’ mall exit to change next year<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

THE RIGHT turn from<br />

Barrington Mall on to<br />

Barrington St is due to be<br />

removed next year.<br />

The move comes after<br />

the Spreydon-Cashmere<br />

Community Board and<br />

nearby residents have been<br />

calling for the<br />

“dangerous” turn<br />

to be scrapped for<br />

about a decade.<br />

Chairwoman<br />

Karolin Potter<br />

said the board<br />

Karolin<br />

Potter<br />

and city council<br />

approved a<br />

proposal to get<br />

rid of it but plans<br />

to have this done by May were<br />

delayed.<br />

“There have been delays<br />

because there are objections<br />

to it but I just can tell you<br />

emphatically that the council’s<br />

going to proceed,” she said.<br />

Said city council manager<br />

of planning and delivery<br />

transport Lynette Ellis: “The<br />

proposal to ban right turns<br />

out of the mall is still intended<br />

to proceed. Resource consent<br />

approvals for the change in mall<br />

vehicle movements are yet to<br />

be obtained. Construction is<br />

anticipated to commence early<br />

in 2020.”<br />

Said Ms Potter: “The council<br />

believes that abolishing the<br />

right-hand turn is what’s<br />

needed for safety along with the<br />

residents. The residents have<br />

been asking for a long time. It is<br />

the council’s view that one way<br />

or another, we will proceed.”<br />

Ms Potter said the reason for<br />

the delay is “confidential” for<br />

now.<br />

“We understand why . . . they<br />

are trying to sort something out<br />

that’s pretty intractable but they<br />

will get there.”<br />

Ms Potter said in spite of<br />

having to wait, she is pleased the<br />

turn will finally be cut off.<br />

Cashmere Ward city<br />

councillor Tim Scandrett said<br />

motorists who make the turn<br />

put themselves and pedestrians<br />

in danger.<br />

“We’ve got a library<br />

there, we’ve got a children’s<br />

playground there and a disabled<br />

children’s playground . . . once<br />

you walk along that footpath<br />

along Barrington St, there’s no<br />

delineation whatsoever between<br />

the traffic access and your<br />

pedestrians.<br />

“From after school through to<br />

about 5.30 it’s just a nightmare<br />

SAFETY<br />

UPGRADE: The<br />

right turn out of<br />

Barrington Mall<br />

on to Barrington<br />

St is set to be cut<br />

off next year.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF<br />

SLOAN<br />

. . . it’s a horrendous little<br />

intersection to be quite honest.”<br />

Said Barrington Mall centre<br />

manager Jill Kearns: “As we<br />

are still in consultation with<br />

the council seeking the most<br />

desirable outcome of this project<br />

for all parties involved, we’d<br />

rather not comment further at<br />

this time. As soon as all parties<br />

are happy with the proposed<br />

changes, we’re confident that<br />

the council will be proactive in<br />

sharing this information with<br />

the surrounding community<br />

and everyone else that it may<br />

involve.”<br />

In Brief<br />

BUS STOP SHELTERS<br />

Three new bus passenger shelters<br />

will installed at existing bus stops in<br />

the Halswell and Riccarton wards.<br />

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board approved them<br />

at Richmond Ave, next to Knights<br />

Stream School, beside Caulfield<br />

Reserve and at 139 Waimairi Rd.<br />

Charity shops seen as a rubbish dump<br />

• By Laura Hitchon<br />

PEOPLE ARE discarding<br />

damaged goods and other<br />

rubbish outside charity shops to<br />

avoid paying refuse station fees.<br />

Charity shop staff are turning<br />

up to work on Monday mornings<br />

to discover large piles of damaged<br />

goods lying on their front<br />

door step and, although some<br />

items are saleable, many are not.<br />

St John Opportunity Shop<br />

volunteer Brian North said many<br />

people dropped off the goods at<br />

their Addington store at night<br />

or during the weekend when the<br />

shop was closed.<br />

“We would prefer that people<br />

drop off their goods during the<br />

daytime when we are able to<br />

inspect them.<br />

“People think that just because<br />

they donate something, we will<br />

accept it but we need to be able<br />

to sell these items and if they’re<br />

damaged, we can’t,” he said.<br />

Salvation Army Family Store<br />

Hornby shop manager Terry<br />

Murray said some people genuinely<br />

believed the goods they<br />

were donating were in an acceptable<br />

condition but many people<br />

knew the goods were rubbish<br />

and donated them anyway.<br />

Damaged goods being donated<br />

included lounge suites, drawers,<br />

mattresses, tables, chairs,<br />

ANNOYED: Salvation Army Family Store Hornby shop manager Terry Murray<br />

(right) and volunteer Neville Walton stand next to the overflowing rubbish skip<br />

filled with donated goods they cannot sell.<br />

sporting equipment, crockery,<br />

glassware, artwork, books, clothing<br />

and shoes.<br />

The money generated from<br />

selling donated goods goes back<br />

into the charity to help people<br />

in need, however, this was being<br />

jeopardised by the cost of having<br />

to dump other people’s rubbish.<br />

Mr Murray said they emptied<br />

their skip about three times a<br />

week which cost them about<br />

$140 each time.<br />

“One of the biggest expenses<br />

we have is taking damaged<br />

goods to the dump.”<br />

Mr Murray said the cost of<br />

taking rubbish to the refuse<br />

station was a possible cause of<br />

people dumping their unwanted<br />

goods at charity shops.<br />

“Many people don’t own a<br />

trailer and can’t afford to hire<br />

one let alone afford to take their<br />

rubbish to the dump, so they just<br />

leave it on the charity’s doorstep,”<br />

he said.<br />

To dump one tonne of general<br />

waste, the EcoCentral website<br />

lists it at $253.40.<br />

WASTE: Salvation Army staff members Leane<br />

PHOTOS: LAURA HITCHON<br />

Mr Murray said it would be<br />

beneficial if the city council<br />

collected large waste from the<br />

charity once a month and subsidised<br />

the dumping fees to ease<br />

pressure.<br />

A city council spokesperson<br />

said they expected residents to<br />

dispose of their unwanted items<br />

responsibly and that people<br />

should only make donations to<br />

charity stores that are open, able<br />

and willing to take their items.<br />

The spokesperson said dumping<br />

damaged goods at charity<br />

bins or store fronts could be seen<br />

as illegal dumping and could<br />

incur a fine for the person disposing<br />

of the litter.<br />

“The kerbside collection<br />

service is a standard service<br />

funded by ratepayers and we<br />

are unable to provide additional<br />

services above the entitlement of<br />

a property.”<br />

The spokesperson said<br />

unwanted goods could be<br />

disposed of at one of three<br />

EcoDrop recycling centres across<br />

the city at a cost.<br />

Bid to stop parking on village green<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

CONCERNS HAVE been<br />

raised about vehicles parking<br />

on the Cashmere Village Green<br />

and damaging the grass.<br />

A neighbour of the green has<br />

complained to the Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere Community Board<br />

about vehicles parking on the<br />

grass. Board<br />

member Lee<br />

Sampson<br />

then took<br />

photos of Boss<br />

Construction<br />

vehicles parked<br />

on the grass.<br />

Lee<br />

Sampson<br />

However,<br />

the company’s<br />

managing<br />

director Guy Mckee, who lives<br />

near the green, said his workers<br />

are no longer doing parking<br />

there.<br />

Mr Sampson said the city<br />

council has asked people<br />

parking on the green on Dyers<br />

Pass Rd to stop. This was<br />

originally somewhat effective<br />

but Mr Sampson said the<br />

number of vehicles parking<br />

on the grass had returned to<br />

concerning levels “over the last<br />

three to four weeks.”<br />

“It’s a couple of parties, maybe<br />

two or three parties that are<br />

starting to take the preverbal to<br />

be honest, it’s out of hand. It’s<br />

completely eroding the grass on<br />

that side of the green.”<br />

“What we need is maybe a<br />

consistent approach from the<br />

council to how we deal with<br />

people when they’re parking on<br />

reserves.”<br />

Said city council manager of<br />

community parks Al Hardy:<br />

“Council staff have approached<br />

offenders to no longer park on<br />

the grass and continue monitoring<br />

of the site. If actions of the<br />

offenders persist enforcement<br />

has the capability to have vehicles<br />

towed.”<br />

Mr Mckee said although his<br />

contractors used to park on the<br />

green, they no longer did.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

DAMAGE: <strong>Southern</strong> <strong>View</strong> visited the Cashmere Village Green<br />

last week and took this photo of vehicles parked on the grass.<br />

(Right) – Boss Construction vehicles also used to park on the<br />

grass.<br />

“It was brought to my<br />

attention that there were<br />

contractors parking on there,<br />

so all our contractors are now<br />

parking on a cobblestone bit<br />

which is designated for parking.<br />

We’re not parking on the green<br />

at all,” said Mr Mckee.<br />

“I just don’t see it being a<br />

massive deal. I mean when<br />

the [Cashmere Presbyterian]<br />

church has something on,<br />

there are cars parked all over<br />

the grass and I’ve seen other<br />

neighbours and bits and pieces<br />

park on it. I just kind of think<br />

that this (complainant) is just<br />

sort of clutching at straws . . .<br />

but they seem to pick on me<br />

and don’t address that there<br />

are a lot of other people that do<br />

park there, it’s not just us and<br />

we’re not ripping the grass up or<br />

anything like that.”<br />

Cashmere Presbyterian<br />

Church minister Silvia Purdie<br />

said its visitors do park on<br />

the green during busy events,<br />

like funerals and weddings,<br />

as exactly where people are<br />

allowed to park is not obvious.<br />

“We’ve obviously never<br />

encouraged people to park<br />

on the actual grass and it is a<br />

little unclear as to where the<br />

parking areas actually are . . .<br />

there’s no signage and there’s<br />

no paint and there are no<br />

bollards or anything so I do<br />

understand that people try to<br />

squeeze in there and we hope<br />

to not be inconvenient to the<br />

neighbours,” she said.<br />

“If there’s an issue we would<br />

support the council putting in<br />

some bollards or some better,<br />

clearer direction for that, but<br />

certainly having industrial work<br />

vehicles parked up there is not<br />

helpful from our point of view.”<br />

Cyclists urged<br />

to slow down at<br />

Cashmere track<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

CYCLISTS SPEEDING through<br />

a popular track in Cashmere are<br />

putting walkers in danger.<br />

The Spreydon-Cashmere<br />

Community Board has asked<br />

city council staff to improve the<br />

signage at Ernle Clark Reserve<br />

to remind cyclists to be more<br />

considerate to pedestrians.<br />

Board member Lee Sampson<br />

said the request was a result of<br />

the concerns raised by a nearby<br />

resident.<br />

“It’s just Ernle Clark is such a<br />

successful space and it’s being<br />

used by so many people,” he said.<br />

“The cyclists, because there are<br />

so many bends as you go around<br />

Ernle Clark or so many trees that<br />

kind of jut out into traffic, are<br />

just catching people out now and<br />

again.<br />

“[City council] staff will go<br />

away and explore putting some<br />

signage up, so hopefully it’s just a<br />

case of putting some signs up and<br />

everybody gets on and will just<br />

have a little bit more courtesy for<br />

pedestrians.<br />

“If you take the opinion that<br />

cyclists can’t use it, people will<br />

still use it, so you’ve just got to try<br />

and work with people essentially.”<br />

the fear that Salander’s enemies will come after her. He should,<br />

perhaps, be more concerned for himself. In the pocket of an<br />

unidentified homeless man, who died with the name of a<br />

Swedish government minister on his lips, the police find a list<br />

of telephone numbers. Among them, the contact for Millennium<br />

magazine and the investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist.<br />

Following the scorched trail of her twin sister Camilla to<br />

Moscow, Salander nevertheless continues to watch over her old<br />

friend. Soon Blomkvist will need her help. But first, she has an<br />

old score to settle; and fresh outrage to avenge. In a climax of<br />

shattering violence, Lisbeth Salander will face her nemesis. For<br />

the girl with the dragon tattoo, the personal is always political -<br />

and ultimately deadly.<br />

Driven<br />

By Hayden Paddon<br />

Hayden Paddon was just a boy growing up in Geraldine - in love<br />

with driving and dreaming big. Starting with nothing, and determined<br />

to beat the odds, he set out on a phenomenal 20-year pathway to<br />

the World Rally Championship, where he footed it with the best rally<br />

drivers on the planet. But it didn’t come easy. In Driven, Paddon<br />

details the many highs and lows along his road to the top. He opens<br />

up about his struggles with bullying and depression as a young<br />

man. He also goes on public record for the first time about his<br />

2017 accident in which a spectator was killed and his controversial<br />

dismissal from the Hyundai Motorsport team in 2018. It’s the real<br />

account from Paddon himself, in his own words, as he sets the<br />

record straight about his dramatic life on and off the road. Driven is<br />

a mile-a-minute autobiography that celebrates self-belief, hard work<br />

and turning dreams into reality.<br />

Mrs Escobar - My life with Pablo<br />

By Victoria eugenia Henao<br />

Pablo Escobar’s wife reveals the real man behind the notorious drug<br />

lord’s legend. This is the closest you’ll ever get to the most infamous<br />

drug kingpin in modern history, told by the woman who stood by<br />

his side.<br />

**A Sunday Times Book of the Year**<br />

The closest you’ll ever get to the most infamous drug kingpin in<br />

modern history, told by the person who stood by his side<br />

The story of Pablo Escobar, one of the wealthiest, powerful and<br />

violent criminals of all time has fascinated the world. Yet the one<br />

person closest to him has never spoken out – until now. Maria<br />

Victoria Henao met Pablo when she was 13, eloped with him at<br />

15, and despite his numerous infidelities and violence, stayed by<br />

his side for the following 16 years until his death. At the same time,<br />

she urged him to make peace with his enemies and managed to<br />

negotiate her and her children’s freedom after Pablo’s demise.<br />

Through Ice & Fire<br />

By Sarah Laverick<br />

The wild and desolate expanses of Antarctica have been the setting<br />

for many famous exploits and misadventures: a place where every<br />

decision has life-or-death consequences.<br />

Legendary explorers such as Shackleton, Mawson and Scott<br />

continue to inspire to this day, and their faithful ships, the<br />

Endurance, Aurora and Tera Nova are vivid characters in their fateful<br />

voyages of discovery. The first and only Australian-built Antarctic<br />

flagship, Aurora Australis, and her crews have likewise secured a<br />

place in Antarctic history.<br />

This is the 30-year story of Aurora Australis and of her diverse<br />

charges - crew, technicians, scientists, explorers, writers and artists.<br />

It’s the tale of a problem-plagued construction, two devastating fires,<br />

a crippling besetment in ice and a blizzard-induced grounding in<br />

Antarctica. It tells of brave rescue missions of other ships and their<br />

grateful crews, and of the heroic administering of medical help while<br />

battling life-threatening temperatures and hurricane-force winds.<br />

Big swim in memory of twin sister<br />

•From page 1<br />

Nico decided to swim the<br />

gruelling distance to mark his<br />

sister being 16-years-old at the<br />

time of her death.<br />

For the past three years,<br />

Nico has been training at the<br />

Waitaha Swim Club, based at<br />

the Canterbury Swim School in<br />

Hornby, where the swim will be<br />

held today.<br />

Nico’s mother Keiran Horne<br />

said Bethany, who attended<br />

Hagley Community College,<br />

struggled following the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

She was located at Redcliffs<br />

School at the time of the quake.<br />

“You could imagine it was<br />

pretty traumatic with the cliffs<br />

coming down so for years after<br />

Beth had trouble sleeping.<br />

“She had been seeing a<br />

psychologist for sometime, she<br />

had been working on strategies to<br />

keep on an even keel. Then about<br />

a month before she died she just<br />

went on a downward spiral.”<br />

Ms Horne said she is<br />

immensely proud of Nico, who<br />

came up with the idea of the<br />

swim and organised the event<br />

himself.<br />

She said Bethany had a<br />

beautiful soul and was loved by<br />

many, but a lot of people didn’t<br />

realise the struggles she was<br />

ENDURANCE: Nico Wildbore is set to swim 16km today to raise awareness about the stigma<br />

attached to talking about mental health and suicide.<br />

going through.<br />

Ms Horne said there needs to<br />

be more education and talk about<br />

dealing mental health issues.<br />

“I have always been a really<br />

open communicator with my<br />

children, but when we had to<br />

start to deal with issues around<br />

mental health I actually really<br />

struggled to know how to talk<br />

about it in the best way.”<br />

The distance of the swim is a<br />

difficult undertaking for anyone,<br />

but especially for Nico.<br />

He was born with a type of<br />

cerebral palsy called hemiplegia,<br />

which means Nico has limited<br />

mobility in his right arm and leg.<br />

But Nico, who is transgender, is<br />

a high achiever. Last year he was<br />

named the best para-swimmer<br />

at the Canterbury secondary<br />

swimming championships. One<br />

of his big goals is to make it to the<br />

Paralympics and pave the way for<br />

other transgender people to do<br />

the same.<br />

Since his sister’s death, Nico<br />

said he has been coping as well as<br />

he can, but is taking it one day at<br />

a time.<br />

The spotlight is on mental<br />

health issues which are at an alltime<br />

high in Canterbury.<br />

Police statistics showed 4369<br />

attempted suicide events in<br />

Canterbury were reported in<br />

2018, up 59 per cent from 2015.<br />

Ms Horne said she wants<br />

people who may be feeling the<br />

way her daughter did to know<br />

there is always hope.<br />

WHERE TO GET HELP:<br />

your own or someone else’s<br />

or endangering others, call<br />

Trainer aims to get ringside at Olympics<br />

HONOURED: Tane Norton (left)<br />

presented Mike Webster with<br />

his Linwood Rugby Club life<br />

membership.<br />

Linwood rugby<br />

stalwart made<br />

life member<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

LINWOOD rugby stalwart Mike<br />

Webster has been honoured with<br />

a life membership for his work<br />

behind the scenes and on the<br />

sidelines.<br />

The veteran team manager and<br />

club committee member said he<br />

was thrilled to get the honour at<br />

the end of the season. “Bit of a bolt<br />

from the blue, I wasn’t expecting<br />

it, so it was nice,” he said.<br />

“(Former All Black) Tane<br />

Norton gave me a call and he<br />

presented me with my pin at the<br />

presentation dinner.”<br />

The 59-year-old came to the club<br />

in 1978 after high school where<br />

he had mostly played soccer. “I<br />

never really made the ranks as a<br />

player, making it to senior B level.<br />

By 1986 I started managing teams<br />

with second grade then I managed<br />

at senior B, and then from 2000, I<br />

had <strong>10</strong> years with our senior team<br />

then I did seven years managing<br />

the Canterbury under-18s.”<br />

WOOLSTON BOXING club<br />

trainer Holly Sullivan is on<br />

the shortlist to mentor New<br />

Zealand’s best amateur fighters<br />

at the Olympics in Tokyo next<br />

year.<br />

The 32-year-old started<br />

boxing to stay fit when she was a<br />

Canterbury tennis representative<br />

and national football trialist 14<br />

years ago and fell in love with<br />

the sport.<br />

Sullivan is the only woman<br />

in New Zealand who is an<br />

internationally qualified trainer,<br />

which means if Woolstonbased<br />

Olympic boxing<br />

prospects Tegan Clark or<br />

Trevor Swainson make the<br />

New Zealand team, she will be<br />

Tokyo-bound with them.<br />

“Both of them are on the<br />

Olympic prospects list and<br />

so if any of my boxers get in,<br />

because I’m a woman with<br />

the qualifications, they want<br />

a balance of male and female<br />

managers and chaperones<br />

there.”<br />

“I’m currently a star one<br />

international licence coach and<br />

there’s a chance I’ll have to sit<br />

my star two beforehand.”<br />

The prospect of two of her<br />

boxers competing at the New<br />

Zealand trials in March will<br />

mean a different structure over<br />

the summer months.<br />

“I’ve told Tegan and Trev that<br />

they’ll box up until the end of<br />

November and then have the<br />

whole of December off.<br />

“They need a rest month and<br />

with the trials in February/<br />

March they’ll need a six-week,<br />

well-conditioned programme by<br />

that time.<br />

Sullivan said she started<br />

training at the Woolston Boxing<br />

Club gym once a week about<br />

the time she purchased her<br />

first house at the age of 18 on<br />

Mackworth St.<br />

“I started going once a week<br />

under Steve Henry . . . and I<br />

asked if I could fight and he<br />

said that I could start turning<br />

up more if I wanted that and I<br />

thought it was fair enough.”<br />

It wasn’t until she hurt her<br />

shoulder in a bout – which led to<br />

three surgeries and a nine-year<br />

absence from that ring – that<br />

Sullivan considered coaching.<br />

Over the past decade, she and<br />

a group of dedicated volunteers<br />

have built the club’s numbers<br />

up to more than 60, including<br />

23 who are allowed to box<br />

competitively.In spite of her<br />

success, Sullivan said she is too<br />

busy looking forward to look<br />

back. “There’s so much going<br />

on right now and so much I’m<br />

looking forward to that I’m more<br />

excited about the future.<br />

“Certainly to see how<br />

far we have come is unreal<br />

but I was lucky with the<br />

foundation that was here when<br />

I first started.”<br />

Tasty Bites<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

Exotic food with the least hassle<br />

If you are going to cook<br />

for a large dinner party,<br />

organisation and preparation<br />

are key, starting with<br />

working out a menu well<br />

ahead of the event. Try<br />

including this tasty Asianinfluenced<br />

starter to your<br />

list<br />

Tamarind chilli crispy-skin<br />

salmon with green mango<br />

herb salad<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

600g salmon fillets, cut into 4cm<br />

cubes, patted dry with paper<br />

towels<br />

Sea salt<br />

Fresh cracked black pepper<br />

Crispy shallots<br />

Oil<br />

Tamarind chilli dressing<br />

5-<strong>10</strong>g large dried red chillies<br />

2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced in<br />

a mortar and pestle with a pinch<br />

of salt<br />

5g belacan (shrimp paste)<br />

65g gula melaka, shaved<br />

25g tamarind pulp, soaked in<br />

150ml<br />

hot water, rendered and sieved<br />

1½ Tbsp lemon juice<br />

2 large kaffir lime leaves, finely<br />

julienned<br />

Green mango herb salad<br />

½ telegraph cucumber or one<br />

lebanese cucumber, unpeeled,<br />

shaved into ribbons<br />

1 green mango, peeled, shaved<br />

into ribbons<br />

1 small bunch coriander leaves<br />

1 small bunch Thai basil leaves<br />

2 wing beans, finely sliced<br />

Squeeze of lemon juice<br />

Pinch of sugar<br />

Olive oil<br />

Directions<br />

Season the fish with salt and<br />

pepper and a drizzle of oil.<br />

Place the soaked dried chillies<br />

and garlic in a food processor<br />

and blend until a fine paste.<br />

Heat two tablespoons of oil in<br />

a small saucepan over medium<br />

heat, add the shrimp paste and<br />

mash with a wooden spatula.<br />

Cook for 1min until the shrimp<br />

paste becomes fragrant and<br />

starts to toast.<br />

Add the chilli garlic paste<br />

and continue to cook, stirring<br />

frequently, until fragrant.<br />

Add the gula melaka and cook<br />

until dark, glossy and sticky.<br />

Slowly pour in the tamarind<br />

puree. Cook until slightly<br />

thickened, then stir in the lemon<br />

juice and sprinkle on the kaffir<br />

lime leaves. Remove from heat<br />

and set aside.<br />

Heat a non-stick fry pan over<br />

high heat. Place the fish pieces<br />

skin side down evenly around<br />

the pan and cook until crisp and<br />

golden.<br />

To ensure that the skin is<br />

evenly crispy, you may need to<br />

gently press with a spatula to<br />

keep the skin flat on the pan.<br />

Turn over, and cook the other<br />

side until three-quarter cooked.<br />

Pour over the tamarind chilli<br />

sauce and toss very gently to just<br />

coat. Be careful not to break up<br />

the fish pieces.<br />

Combine the salad ingredients,<br />

and dress with lemon juice,<br />

sugar and olive oil just before<br />

serving.<br />

Transfer the fish to a serving<br />

plate along with all the sauce<br />

and top with the green mango,<br />

cucumber and herb salad.<br />

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and<br />

serve immediately.<br />

Note: Adjust the quantity<br />

of the large, red dried chillies<br />

according to your taste. Also,<br />

leave the seeds in if you like<br />

the dish extra spicy, otherwise,<br />

deseed them.<br />

In any case, soak the chillies in<br />

hot water until softened before<br />

using them.<br />

source it from one of the other branches in<br />

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE<br />

car, truck and commercial parts.<br />

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair<br />

REAL ESTATE<br />

Private, peaceful<br />

Purau rural retreat<br />

52 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour<br />

Price: $850,000 plus GST if any<br />

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 living rooms | 13ha | Listing Number: 9736<br />

Seldom do properties such as this come<br />

to the market but retiring vendors of 30<br />

years have decided the time has come.<br />

This is a wonderful location, peaceful<br />

and private with wonderful bird song. Set<br />

on 13.1369 hectares or 32.5 acres approx.<br />

this charming <strong>10</strong>0m 2 home is both easycare<br />

and warm. Commanding beautiful<br />

views of the Purau Valley, Purau Bay and<br />

Mt Evans, if you are looking for peace and<br />

privacy then this one could be for you.<br />

Set well off the road the house has<br />

two double bedrooms, two living areas,<br />

lovely decking and one bathroom. North<br />

East facing and sheltered with a garage/<br />

workshop adjacent to the house. The<br />

garden is easy care and the land is a<br />

mixture of pasture in five paddocks for<br />

grazing, some bush and about 250 approx.<br />

30 year old pine trees ready for harvesting.<br />

The property is well fenced and has an<br />

excellent water supply, a small stream and<br />

a natural pond. Further down the driveway<br />

there is a set of yards, a four bay implement<br />

shed, a tractor shed with high stud and a<br />

large high stud workshop with three phase<br />

power. There is also a semi derelict house<br />

from about the 1930s on the property.<br />

This is an idyllic location and perfect for<br />

a retiring farmer, someone wanting to get<br />

into the firewood business or someone with<br />

a portable mill to make use of all the trees.<br />

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’<br />

drive from Christchurch, making it a<br />

highly desirable destination as it is so<br />

useable being close to Christchurch.<br />

Properties in this lovely valley and by such<br />

a safe swimming beach are defying all the<br />

odds and selling fast generally as they come<br />

up very seldom.<br />

Excellent swimming, boating, walking<br />

and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick<br />

and easy access to Lyttelton via the<br />

Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. five<br />

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this<br />

a fun filled place to visit. Properties here<br />

make an excellent investment and Purau<br />

Bay and valley is a truly magical place to<br />

live.<br />

To view this property please contact<br />
