Not enough

say on plan

to manage

cruise ship

passengers

– residents

• By Jess Gibson

NEW MEASURES have been put

in place to help manage the impact

cruise ship visitors are having on

Akaroa.

But Akaroa Ratepayers and

Residents Association chairman

Harry Stronach says he is

“disappointed” the community

was not consulted more before

action was taken.

With 90 cruise ship visits due

in Akaroa this summer, the city

council is working to ensure

measures are in place to manage

the influx of passengers, as well as

other tourists and visitors.

Tighter controls on tourist bus

parking, more toilet facilities and

“smart” public rubbish bins will all

be in place for the upcoming cruise

ship season.

City council citizens and

community principal adviser

Brent Smith said there has been

a collaborative approach to

supporting the busy cruise ship

season in Akaroa.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

from the reporter’s desk

IT’S GREAT to see something is finally being done to ease the

impacts of cruise ships in Akaroa (see page 1).

Ninety vessels will enter the harbour this season, and the city

council has new measures in place to minimise congestion from

an influx of tourists and visitors.

Residents have been pushing for action since it first became a

problem eight years ago.

However, it seems the community has been forgotten about

in the city council’s “collaborative” approach to managing

congestion.

City council citizens and community principal adviser

Brent Smith says the city council is working with cruise lines,

transport operators, businesses and other organisations to

improve the experience for residents and visitors.

Interesting move since residents have complained in the past

about businesses being given priority over the community.

Multi-year funding for conservation trust

SINCE 2001, the Banks

Peninsula Conservation Trust

has worked to preserve and

enhance the area’s indigenous

flora and fauna.

And now, it will continue to do

so comfortably, with $120,000 of

funding from

Rata Foundation.

The trust recently

received

approval for

multi-year

funding from

Leighton

Evans

the foundation

under the newly-launched

Sustain priority area.

At the heart of the trust are the

people of Banks Peninsula, and

because of this, it receives plenty

of support from the community.

Said volunteer manager Sophie

Hartnell: “A healthy, natural

environment provides a solid

foundation for everything that is

of value to people – food, water,

shelter and health.”

“We want to inspire people

to be passionate about the

environment around them, to

understand it and take action

to protect and restore it. All of

our programmes are designed

to enable community members

to actively sustain the natural

environment across the Banks

Peninsula.”

BIODIVERSITY: The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust has

received approval a $120,000 grant from Rate Foundation

under its newly-launched Sustain priority area.

Rata Foundation chief executive

Leighton Evans said the trust

does an amazing job of getting

the community involved in its

projects.

“The trust has created some

strong connections within the

Banks Peninsula community,

bringing people together to preserve

and sustain the biodiversity

in the area,” he said.

Collaboration is one of the

most important aspects of the

trust’s overall vision, working

with private landowners and

organisations including the

Department of Conservation,

Environment Canterbury,

Christchurch City Council, the

HIKING BOOTS

& SHOES

For men, women

and children

From

$79.95

to $250

Lyttelton Port Company and local

schools.

“We wouldn’t be where we are

without the support of these, and

other key supporting organisations

– collaboration is an essential

part of how we operate.”

The trust is community-driven

and facilitates the protection

of biodiversity on private land

through covenants.

“Covenants allow us to work

with private landowners to

legally protect their land and

important ecological values in

perpetuity. The whole community

benefits from this commitment

to protecting biodiversity

for current and future generations.

We support the landowner

through the covenanting process

which includes legal protection,

fencing of the protected area, as

well as ecological survey and the

development of an ecological

management plan. “

The trust has a 30-year ecological

vision which outlines eight

key priorities: old-growth remnants,

rare ecosystems, connections

between land, freshwater

and marine habitats, core areas

of indigenous forest, land and

freshwater management supporting

indigenous biodiversity, indigenous

flora and fauna, species

reintroduction and a pest-free

Banks Peninsula.

Lyttelton’s Port Saddle is one

of the trust’s projects which is

delivered in partnership with

the Lyttelton Port Company and

strongly encourages community

involvement.

The trust has facilitated predator-control,

plantings, workshops

and other educational opportunities

involving members of the

community on this site.

Said Ms Hartnell: “We have

kids coming from the local

school to do their part in protecting

the biodiversity along Port

Saddle.”

Lyttelton parking

feedback sought

• By Jess Gibson

ASSOCIATE Minister Poto

Williams has asked the public

to weigh in on a proposal which

could help the regeneration of

Lyttelton.

It seeks to lift a requirement in

the Christchurch District Plan

that requires business developers

to provide a certain number of

car parking spaces.

The city council submitted the

proposal to Ms Williams, the

Associate Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration, as

the rule was causing issues for

potential developments.

Ms Williams is able to use her

powers under the Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act to make

amendments to the District Plan.

But before making her decision,

she will consider written feedback

from the public which can be submitted

from now until November

14.

“It is important that anyone

interested in these proposals

makes a written comment,’’ Ms

Williams said.

She said the current requirements

do not take into account

Lyttelton’s unusual geography

and the size and shape of sites.

•The proposal can be viewed

and written comments made

online at dpmc.govt.nz/Lytteltonparking

Plan to beat midge problem

MORE THAN 9000 native

shrubs and trees will be planted

beside the Bromley oxidation

ponds over the next few weeks

as part of ongoing efforts to keep

the midge population down.

The trees and shrubs will create

a natural screen

between the oxidation ponds

and nearby homes and help cut

down the light from the residential

area.

Midges, like moths, are naturally

attracted to light.

“We’ve prepared the ground

for planting and over the next

few weeks our contractor, Fulton

Hogan, will be putting in 9330

native trees and shrubs,’’ said

city council three waters and

waste operations manager Adam

Twose.

“As the plants grow up, they

will shield the ponds from the

light from neighbouring homes

and roads which should make

the residential area less attractive

to the midges.’’

The planting work is part of a

multi-pronged approach the city

council is taking to control the

midge population around the

oxidation ponds.

Midges are not harmful but

over the warm summer months,

they are an unwanted nuisance

for nearby residents.

“Unfortunately midges breed

well in the shallow, warm waters

of the oxidation ponds so we

are continually working to find

new ways of keeping the midge

population down,’’ Mr Twose

said.

“Last summer we

mechanically disturbed the floor

of the oxidation ponds by using

a slow-moving boat fitted with

a raft of chains that dragged

behind it. By doing this, we were

able to create a less hospitable

environment for the midges to

breed in.

“As a result we saw a 35

per cent decline in the midge

population around the ponds

and received fewer complaints

about the midges from nearby

residents.

oN sAle Now!

NUISANCE:

Nine

thousand

native

shrubs will

be planted

beside the

Bromley

oxidation

ponds in a

bid to reduce

the midge

population.

“We’ll be using the same approach

again this summer so we

hope to see a further decline in

midge numbers.

“We will also have contractors

working on extending the spur

in Pond 2 so that we can alter

the inflow of treated wastewater,

which should also make the

ponds a less attractive breeding

ground for midges.’’

Spray to be used to

clear Heathcote weed

INVASIVE weeds clogging

the Heathcote River and

taking over its banks will

soon be targeted in a weed

spraying programme.

The programme is due to

start early next month, but

the work is weather and

tide dependant.

The weeds are covering

the riverbanks and will

eventually wipe out native

species. Some are also

restricting flood flows and

increasing the amount of

sediment in the river.

“The weeds are starting

to impact on the river’s

ecosystem and capacity so

they need to be removed,’’

said city council land

drainage manager Keith

Davison.

“We have bank stabilisation

and planting work

happening along the

Heathcote River as part of

our flood mitigation programme

in the area and we

need to get rid of the weeds

before we progress this

work any further,” he said.

The chemical herbicide

glyphosate will be used to

target the weeds.

“Unfortunately, the

organic fatty acid alternatives

that are available are

not safe to use around

toxicity to aquatic invertebrates.

“We can’t physically remove

all the weeds in and

so our best option is to use

glyphosate, which becomes

inactive in soil and sediment,

so safe to use around

Mr Davison said the

to minimise the impact on

and to avoid the

risk to people travelling

through the area.

“The areas that have

Work soon on Ferrymead cycleway

CONSTRUCTION WILL soon

begin on the last stretch of a

cycleway connecting Ferrymead

with other suburbs.

Already linking the central

city with The Tannery in

Woolston, the Heathcote Expressway

will soon continue out

to Heathcote.

Once complete, it will provide

a key commuter route as well as

easy access by bike to Ferrymead

Heritage Park.

Work is also due to commence

on two other sections

of Christchurch’s cycleway

network.

The South Express cycleway,

which was consulted on last year,

will run from the CBD through

Riccarton, Sockburn and

Hornby, to reach Templeton.

The third cycleway soon to be

on the map is the Nor’West Arc,

which will connect nine schools

as it runs across the west of the

city.

“These new routes are not

only for the benefit of people

on bikes,” said city council’s

planning and delivery transport

manager Lynette Ellis.

“Motorists and pedestrians

will also enjoy improved safety

and lighting at intersections,

plus we’ll be repairing damaged

infrastructure as we go.”

As more of the cycleways link

together, it becomes easier for

people for give cycling a go, Ms

Ellis said.

“People who are new to biking

feel comfortable using the new

cycleway and current riders are

more likely to make different

trips, like cycling with a child to

school.”

The co-owner of Action Bicycle

Club, Ken Ching, is finding

the cycleways are not just providing

a safe and pleasant pathway

to different parts of the city.

“The infrastructure is more

than just about transport,” he

said.

“It’s improving our public

space and social cohesion. It’s

helping create a liveable city.”

Said Alice Terrien, of Bellbird

Bakery: “The cycleways are great;

direct and safe. Biking is the fastest,

easiest, most hassle-free way

for me to get to work.”

Her bakery uses a cargo-bike

to make deliveries and run errands

around the central city.

“We didn’t want to purchase a

second delivery van. Compared

to a car, the cargo-bike is more

convenient to use, is often faster,

and it’s fun.”

Ms Terrien believes the cycleway

network makes the city

more appealing to locals and

visitors alike.

“I can’t see why Christchurch

couldn’t become the Amsterdam

POPULAR:

Cycleways,

such as this one

between Linwood

and Sumner, are

with the suburbs.

of the south,” she said.

As the infrastructure for

Christchurch’s bicycles continues

to develop, so too does the city’s

biking culture.

Biketober, the annual, monthlong

festival of the cycle, is on

now and offers a diverse programme

of events, from guided

rides to workshops, competitions

to seminars, for all ages. The

full programme can be found at

Skate park

construction

under way

• By Jess Gibson

WORK IS under way to have

a new dirt bike pump track

and skate bowl installed in

Governors Bay Reserve.

Part of the reserve will be

fenced off during construction,

which is expected to take about

two months.

The city council originally

had plans to build a pump

track, skate bowl, half pipe and

treehouse in 2017 but had to

ask the community to prioritise

after it ran out of money to fund

everything.

After the second round

of consultation, which

attracted 62 submissions, the

pump track and skate bowl

came out on top and could be

built within the city council’s

$170,000 budget.

Prior to the consultation, the

community had wanted a skate

park for several years.

Some of the money has also

been put towards the renewal of

the junior playground space and

landscape work around the new

community hall and pool, which

is complete.

Said Mr Smith: “We’re

working with the cruise

lines, transport operators,

businesses and other

organisations, such as

NZ police to improve the

experience for locals and

visitors in Akaroa during

“We’ve introduced

everyone.”

But Mr Stronach said

while he is “delighted” to

“The city

“The city council has

be greater enforcement of

Tour bus drivers will

be encouraged to arrive

at Akaroa closer to their

City council staff will

be in Akaroa to monitor

the rollout of the plan

and make adjustments if

A Bruce Apartments

spokesman was “thrilled”

the city council was doing

The Bruce Apartments

body corporate has sought

Beach Rd during cruise

Additional measures

will be in place to help

ease the impact of cruise

ship passengers, including

more toilet facilities and

new “smart” rubbish bins,

which will be in place by

mid-November. A new

public toilet block at Place

de la Poste – behind the

Akaroa Service Centre on

Rue Jolie – will replace the

old toilets. It will contain

eight toilets.

Six solar-powered

Bigbelly rubbish bins will

also be operating at key

spots around Akaroa.

A built-in compactor

means the bins can swallow

up to five times more

rubbish than a standard

waste bin.

The bins utilise smart

sensors to detect the

rubbish level and alert

maintenance staff when

Readers respond to last week’s article about rock piles left on

Clifton Beach near Shag Rock following the construction of the

Coastal Pathway

Bruce Whitfield

– Dr Pat McIntosh and

her discovery of sizeable

rocks that have come to

notice around Shag Rock

following the new Coastal

Pathway build in the area

is interesting for all the

wrong reasons.

The reported statement

by city council delivery

manager Lynette Ellis

about not being able to

supply the Fulton Hogan

contract for viewing

because it contains

“commercially sensitive

information” is just a load

of nonsense.

It’s so disappointing,

especially given we have

just finished another

election round, that again

we see clear evidence of

the city council, through

its employees, deliberately

choosing to be secretive,

and being sparse with

the facts when asked for

some information. For

goodness sake, if the city

council don’t want anyone

to know what Fulton

Hogan got financially out

of the contract or how

the contract work maybe

was structured for them,

they can easily redact the

contract document as

much as they like, but still

supply the information

that Dr McIntosh wants

– for example, what size

filtering was applied and

how the process was

carried out.

It might be that

the issue has to be

regarded as unavoidable

“collateral damage” to the

environment, given the

sizeable pathway project.

The use of large quantities

of filter cloth was evident

during the construction

work, so one would have

thought that this material

could have been used to

prevent the leakage of

the stone rubble that Dr

McIntosh has discovered.

All that said, our city

council still needs to

seriously practice its skills

at being open and honest

with its ratepayers, and

more importantly be

seen to be, especially as

we all pour in more and

more money into the rates

bucket.

Alan Truscott – The

debris will always be

there unless it is removed,

as the larger

particles will always wash

to the surface and not disappear

into the sand. The

sieve they used was way

too big. I actually watched

them doing it and there

is no way they were ever

going to return the beach

to what it was using the

equipment they had.

Your Local Views

Call for strategies to

get people voting

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

writes about

election

results and the

city council’s

proposal to

ease parking

requirements for developers

in Lyttelton

MY WARMEST congratulations

to our newly-elected community

board, councillors, ECan councillors

and District Health Board

members.

We look to have a fine mix of

new faces and experience. My

commiserations to those who stood

but were unsuccessful this time. It

takes a lot of courage, energy and

passion to put your hand up for

these positions and I am confident

that everyone who put their names

forward did so with a commitment

to their community and our wellbeing

at heart.

A lot of people didn’t vote at the

election and this is a worrying

situation. I think that a big part of

this (alongside the postal voting

system) is the fact that many have

no idea what a community board

does – or what a city councillor

does, let alone what the district

health board does.

This lack of knowledge doesn’t

seem to be a huge barrier to overcome.

So I would like to challenge our

elected representatives to put their

collective thinking caps on and

develop some strategies to educate

people locally – and let’s see if we

can have the highest voter turnout

next time.

One of the city council’s recent

proposals is to amend the District

Plan to remove the minimum

on-site parking rule for developments

in the commercial zone in

Lyttelton.

Currently, all development has

to comply with the minimum

and maximum car parks required

under the plan. The amount of

on-site parking required currently

is unnecessary and in many cases,

impossible. If this rule changes,

it would return to the situation

pre-earthquake, where most commercial

sites did not provide, or

provided very little, on-site parking.

This rule is a challenge for developers

and a number of sites are

still vacant with developers slow to

invest.

Minister Poto Williams is

consulting on this right now –

feedback closes on November 14 –

and can be accessed on dpmc.govt.

nz/lyttelton-parking. If you have a

view – share it now.

Overconfidence and scraped nose

CONFIDENCE IS a wonderful

thing.

Vittoria’s certainly getting that

in spades and it’s impacting our

walks.

For example, when she and

I took Mum’s dogs for a beach

walk on Saturday, she was happy

to walk one of the dogs both

there and back by herself without

complaint.

Good right?

However, that same level

of I’m-a-professional-walker

confidence led to some serious

grumpiness and a decent scrape

on her nose on Sunday.

We all spent that night in

Akaroa and we’d managed to

arrive before it stated raining, so

we took the chance to wander

the Francophile waterfront before

it got all grey and wet.

Walking up to the lighthouse

was perfection. Vittoria sat

calmly in her pram, made

excited noises at passing dogs

and seemingly enjoyed the view.

By the time we arrived, her

composure was slipping and she

was practically jumping out in

desperation to walk on her own

feet.

As soon as I got her out

though, she turned and sped off

too fast. She barely got two feet

before tripping over her own

boots and faceplanting into the

concrete. A scaring me kind of

faceplant.

Although her poor wee nose

SKILLED: Vittoria confidently

jumping on a trampoline,

repleat with scraped nose.

got all scraped up and bloody,

I’m glad that was the worst of it.

In spite of that, she was more

than happy to sprint about

concreted areas and then run

downhill and give me more

heart attacks.

Trying to hold her hand

was no good, she’d just

growl at me and do her best

washing machine impression

before stamping off as if to

VITTORIA

& Matt

say: “No, I can do it!”.

An ultimatum was just met

with more running away, so I

just had to wrestle her back into

the pram. Literally.

Let’s see if a scab on her nose

will chill the over confidence. I

doubt it.

So, quick update on the cot

and potty training efforts before

we go.

The potty is still terrifying, so

no real movement there (ha, see

what I did there?)

On the other hand, the cot

training is going great guns.

I’m getting a whole night sleep

without tiny limbs in my eye

socket or ribs.

On Tuesday morning Vittoria

jumped out of bed, wandered

over to me and Laura’s bed, and

jumped up for a cuddle before

getting up. It’s cute when I’m

already awake and it’s not 3am.

To be 100 per cent honest, I

kind of miss the co-sleeping.

NEW RELEASES

Vegful

by Nadia Lim

With vegetarianism and veganism on the rise, New Zealanders are

not only becoming more aware of the benefits of following a plantbased

diet, but also of the negative impact farming animals can

have on the environment. Celebrity cook, nutritionist and co-founder

of My Food Bag, Nadia Lim, says she has wanted to put out a

cookbook dedicated entirely to vegetables for a while, but has been

waiting “for the right time”. That time is now.

Nadia has just released Vegful, a book she describes as “a

vegetable cookbook” rather than a vegetarian cookbook.

It provides inspiration for those of us who know we can do better

with vegetables - we just need a little guidance!

Elton John

The definitive portrait, with unseen images

by Terry O’Neill

“Looking at Terry’s photographs is like gazing through a window at the

most extraordinary and exciting moments of my life. I’m so glad he was

with us throughout the madness: in his evocative and stylish photos he

captured those moments as no other photographer could.” - Elton John

Elton John and iconic photographer Terry O’Neill worked together for

many years, taking in excess of 5,000 photographs. From intimate

backstage shots to huge stadium concerts, the photographs in this

book represent the very best of this archive, with most of the images

being shown here for the first time.

O’Neill has drawn on his personal relationship with Elton John to write

the book’s introduction and captions.

The Giver of Stars

by JoJo Moyes

Inspired by a remarkable true story, the unforgettable journey of five

extraordinary women living in extraordinary and perilous times.

Alice Wright has travelled halfway across the world to escape her

stifling life in England. Handsome American businessman Bennett

Van Cleve represents a fresh start. But she soon realises that

swapping the twitching curtains of suburbia for newlywed life in

the wild mountains of Kentucky isn’t the answer to her prayers. But

maybe meeting Margery O’Hara is. The heart and backbone of the

small community of Salt Lick, a woman who isn’t afraid of anything

or anyone, Margery is on a mission.

Tall Tales

And Wee Stories by Billy Connolly

‘Coming from Glasgow, it’s weird, I don’t really tell jokes, like Irish jokes and

all that. I tell wee stories. And some of them don’t even have punchlines. But

you’ll get used to it as the night goes on, and on, and on, and on and on...’

In December 2018, after fifty years of belly-laughs, energy and outrage, Billy

Connolly announced his retirement from live stand-up comedy. It had been

an extraordinary career

Tall Tales and Wee Stories brings together the very best of Billy’s storytelling

for the first time and includes his most famous routines including, The Last

Supper, Jojoba Shampoo, Incontinence Pants and Shouting at Wildebeest.

With an introduction and original illustrations by Billy throughout, it is an

inspirational, energetic and riotously funny read, and a fitting celebration of

our greatest ever comedian.

Plan to upgrade playgrounds

• By Jess Gibson

TWO PLAYGROUNDS in the

Bay Harbour area are set to get

a refresh.

The city council is seeking

feedback on proposals for the

Radley playground in Woolston

and King Park playground in Mt

Pleasant until November 6.

Both playgrounds are reaching

the end of their life span and

will receive new equipment for a

range of ages and abilities.

Radley playground was built at

Radley Park on Woolston Cres in

the mid-1980s.

Before that, the area was

part of Troutdale Farm, where

Andrew Mensal Johnson bred

the first brown trout in New

Zealand.

The farm was a popular picnic

area until it closed in the early

1930s and a number of the

original trees remain in the park

today.

There is a plaque along the

• By Jess Gibson

PRIZE-WINNING “Kelliher”

paintings will be showcased in

Akaroa.

Sir Henry Kelliher was a longstanding

patron of the arts and

set up the Kelliher Art Award

in 1956.

The objective of the

competition, which lasted until

1977, was to encourage realistic

portrayals of New Zealand

landscapes and the way of life

of its people for the entire world

to see.

The Kelliher Art Exhibition

will be held at the Powerhouse

Gallery from Saturday to

November 24.

The paintings to be displayed

in Akaroa are either Kelliher

competition prize-winners

or paintings acquired by the

Kelliher Art Trust.

It will be the second time

in 63 years a selection of the

paintings have been shown in

banks of the Heathcote River

which commemorates Mr

Johnson.

The city council has proposed

new equipment which would be

suitable for both the park setting

and the community, including

swings, a slide, a carousel, a seesaw

and a fish-rocker.

King Park playground,

which is off Quarry Rd and

Rangatira Tce, dates back to the

1930s.

The proposed new equipment

includes swings, a slide, a “space

shuttle” with rope climbing, and

a choice between a dinosaur

rocker or a kiwi rocker.

Once the consultation

period has closed for both

playgrounds, the project

team will analyse feedback

and produce a report with

a recommendation to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

A decision from the board

is expected sometime in April

the South Island.

Peter McIntyre, Cedric

Savage, David Barker, Austen

Deans, Colin Wheeler, Robert

McDowell and Richard

McWhannell are among the

artists to be exhibited are.

and if the plans are approved,

construction of the playgrounds

is likely to start in May or June.

Feedback sought on

improvement plan

for busy Akaroa road

• By Jess Gibson

A CROSSING build-out has

been proposed for a busy road in

Akaroa.

The city council has asked for

feedback on the planned changes

to Beach Rd next to Stanley Park.

The proposal includes a

crossing point, with a kerb buildout,

to align with the park steps.

The changes will create a safer

crossing point for pedestrians,

make the park entrance more

visible and prevent cars and

buses from parking in front of it.

Consultation opened on

Thursday and will close

on November 6, and a

recommendation will go to the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

If the community board

approves the recommendation,

construction is likely to start

halfway through next year.

Meanwhile, work will begin to

replace the old stone steps where

Stanley Park meets Beach Rd at

the end of the month.

Approval was granted to

replace the steps several years

ago.

The steps will be realigned for

better access and provide room

for the possible future instalment

of the bell tower.

Locally-sourced stone will be

incorporated into the design and

a handrail will also be included

on one side of the steps.

Triathlete humble with success

One of the world’s

most gruelling events

took place this month

when more than 2000

athletes competed

in the Ironman World

Championship in

Hawaii. To mark the

occasion sports

reporter Gordon

Findlater caught up

with Sumner resident

and two-time winner

of the event Erin Baker

ARGUABLY THE greatest

triathlete of all time will

be quick to talk down her

accomplishments when you ask

her about them.

In 1987 Erin Baker won

her first Ironman World

Championship and also smashed

the women’s record at the time in

Hawaii. She won the event again

in 1990. Baker is one of only two

triathletes to win all four world

championships – Ironman, long

distance, Olympic distance and

duathlon.

However, the humble Baker

says her success came simply

through hard work and growing

up being “good at running,

good at biking and good at

swimming.”

Good is an understatement –

in 1994 she finished her triathlon

career with a record of 104 wins

from 121 triathlons – including

four Ironman New Zealand

titles, two world duathlon titles,

two wins at Zofingen, four at

Nice and two Olympic distance

world titles.

These days Baker, 58, takes

the same approach to life she

took when she was competing

and makes sure she excels at

whatever she is doing. She is the

managing director of Orthomed

– supplying hip replacement

solutions and servicing a number

of district health boards.

Baker lives in Sumner with

husband and fellow triathlete

Scott Molina – who won the 1988

World Ironman Championship.

After retiring from triathlon

“That was the worst part of

my life, therefore I got out of it

. . . I never think anything is a

mistake, but that is the thing I

wouldn’t chose to do again if I

had to start over,” said Baker.

Baker was seen by many as

a controversial figure while

competing. She was outspoken

about equal pay for men and

women in triathlon and is one

of the key reasons the sport

has done so for more than two

decades.

in 1981, which meant Baker

couldn’t apply for a US visa for

five years.

“It’s no different than what

people are doing now with

climate change . . . it was an

injustice, it’s wrong. Someone

has to do something about it, so

you go and do something about

it,” she said.

“It’s got a different set of

issues to it, but it’s only through

protest action that you change

things and certainly I don’t

know that any person in their

right mind if they were looking

at it clearly would think that

a group of people by virtue of

their colour would be considered

legally inferior, which is what

they were at the time . . . I

wouldn’t change anything about

that. It was a good thing to have

done.”

In the coming years Baker

hopes to be able to spend less

time working in the business

herself and cast an eye towards

retirement. While still unsure

exactly what her next venture

will look like, she has a fairly

good idea what lines it is likely to

follow.

“I’ve always like supporting

women, it’s just a thing, so I

think something will come of

a women’s aspect which I will

do in my retirement,” said

Baker.

National medals for boxers

• By Jacob Page

WOOLSTON BOXING Club

coach Holly Sullivan is on

the hunt for international

opportunities for her twotime

New Zealand champion,

Hamuera Tainui.

The 14-year-old won back-toback

national titles at Hastings in

the junior under-63kg class.

“He’s a bit of a golden boy, he

fought very well and deserved it,”

Sullivan said.

“He’s still young for a junior so

it would be great to get him some

more opportunities, particularly

internationally.

“That’s what I’m doing now,

just see what opportunities may

be out there just so he gets used

to travelling and competing in a

new environment.”

Sullivan said while trips to

Australia for junior camps

were always beneficial, she said

competitions further away like

Ireland were in her sights.

“It’s important to try to keep

these guys in the sport and show

others coming through what is

possible.

Hamuera’s gold medal was a

highlight, but the Woolston team

also managed three silver medals

and a bronze.

Trevor Swainson was second in

the under-81kg elite class but received

the best runner-up award

at the tournament.

“I thought Trev fought really

well, he had three fights and

earned that silver medal,” Sullivan

said.

WINNER: Woolston boxer Hamuera Tainui won his second

national title at Hastings.

PHOTO: HOLLY SULLIVAN ​

Byron Antal also won silver in

the junior 80kg plus category,

“I think nerves got the better

of Byron but he has the skills he

just needs more fights,” she said.

Ryley Sutherland was

runner-up in the under-50kg

cadet class.

“He fought well but didn’t land

the big, flashy blows probably he

needed to win the fight,” Sullivan

said.

Tegan Burdett-Clark earned a

bronze medal in the under-57kg

elite class.

Sullivan said it was a good

return for the club at a pinnacle

event of the year, but the hard

work continues into the new

year.

Wine

Chardonnays to keep an eye out for

• By Mark Henderson

THIS WEEK’S assortment is a

group of 2017 chardonnays.

With Mr McLaren away travelling,

McLaren jun joined my

regular panelist, Mr Collins, and

me to taste through a range from

across the regions.

A grapefruit note came up in

one of the early wines, and once

that character was identified,

I kept finding it in most of the

wines.

The power of suggestion? A

character of the vintage? Or perhaps

my succumbing to cognitive

bias?

More study will be needed.

2017 Mahi Alchemy Single

Vineyard Marlborough

Chardonnay

Price: $39.90

Rating: Excellent

Gunflint, struck match, powerful

peach and melon fruit, citrus

with time. At first, playing in the

sweet and sour spectrum with

grapefruit in focus and biscuity/

oatmeal notes, but this fattens up

nicely, aeration adding a wisp of

buttered popcorn.

All the while, there’s delicious

drive and crispness with a

delightfully long, fresh and tangy

finish.

www.mahiwine.co.nz

2017 Hunters Offshoot

Marlborough Chardonnay

Price: $34.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Grapefruit, struck match, fresh

baguette, a little toastiness. Powerful

in the mouth, the lemony

citrus notes play off grilled nuts

and toasty elements, with stonefruit

and apple joining in with

aeration. Crisp, salivatory, there’s

a real lip-smacking element to

the acidity.

Tightens a little over time,

but a good swirl helps to coax it

back.

www.hunters.co.nz

2017 Tohu Whenua Awa

Single Vineyard Awatere

Valley Chardonnay

Price: $39.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Struck match, burnt toast,

warm baguette, grapefruit.

Showing its youthful side, yet

also its richness, texture and

supple acidity. Grilled nuts,

caramel, some fruit pith bittersweet

elements and a petrol-like

note.

This becomes more zesty with

aeration but seems to be holding

its cards close to its chest.

www.tohuwines.co.nz

2017 Craggy Range Les

Beaux Cailloux Gimblett

Gravels Chardonnay

Price: $150

Rating: Excellent

Bonfire smoke, spices, peach

almost a deeper register, developing

perfume and struck

match. This could be perceived

as underpowered but there’s

quiet depth in the mouth. This

grows in texture, picking up

notes of orange peel, spice and

toffee, enlivened as the acidity

becomes more racy.

Elegant and with potential.

www.craggyrange.com

2017 Mahi Marlborough

Chardonnay

Price: $29

Rating: Good to very good

A little wild funkiness, wild

yeast, matchstick and spice lead.

Full and creamy entry with

toasty oak in support and just

when you think it might be a

little soft, the racy acidity floods

in, giving this a mouth-puckering

lift.

Quite linear through the

mouth — as the matchstick subsumes

a little cheesiness grows

— though just a little short on

the finish.

www.mahiwine.co.nz

2017 Pegasus Bay Waipara

Chardonnay

Price: $43

Rating: Very good to excellent

Powerful struck match, wood

smoke and toast notes, adding

lactic hints and white peach. Real

acid drive to this giving brisk

freshness, leading with a bittersweet

citrusy element reminding

me of grilled grapefruit.

Fragrant top notes and a long,

mellow finish.

Food and a View to Die For!

NESTLED on the hillside in Lyttelton is perhaps one of

Canterbury’s best kept secrets - e Lyttelton Club -

also known as the Top Club. But with recent

renovations and a new master chef heading the kitchen,

the word is out!

Situated in the heart of Lyttelton the Top Club boasts

some of the best harbour views in the area - evident the

minute you step foot inside. An open plan bar drops

down to the dining area with oor to ceiling windows

providing a panoramic view. e innovative design and

decor adds to the appeal making it instantly warm and

inviting. What was previously the club restaurant has

been transformed into a snug sports bar with pool table,

TAB and even more amazing harbour views.

e Bistro offers a compact yet diverse range of

meals created by Master Chef Lloyd Millar. With over

40 years experience, Lloyd has a wealth of experience.

Born in Lyttelton and trained in Canterbury, Lloyd’s

career has seen him in many notable kitchens not only

across New Zealand but overseas too, including his

private dining ‘Dinner By Design’ business. Recent years

has seen him based predominately in Banks Peninsula

where he has cooked at local greats including She Cafe

in Governors Bay, the Akaroa Wharf Hotel, award

winning Monster Yakitori Bar in Lyttelton, and the

Fishermans Wharf in Lyttelton.

While Lloyd’s food knowledge is extensive, he is

renowned for his skill in Yakitori and for this reason the

Club has installed a charcoal grill. So on the menu is a

great selection of these delicious Japanese style skewers,

as well as classic Sirloin, Ribeye and Italian style Sausage

mains that are served with fries and garden salad. Other

mains options include twice cooked Pork Belly, a choice

of Burgers, Hoki & Chips, Dory Fillet, and a Potato,

Chickpea Tofu Laska. ere is also a good selection of

starters and desserts, as well as a kiddies menu. Gluten

free, vegan and vegetarian options are also available.

And price wise the menu is extremely affordable.

e Bistro also offers regular specials, such as All You

Can Eat Dumplings every Wednesday and a Sunday

Carvery & Dessert at the end of each month.

If you’re planning an event, the Top Club is well

worth considering. Talk to Lloyd about holding a

function. He can design catering to t any budget.

In the bar there’s live coverage of international rugby

with food and beverage specials accompanying All

Blacks games, Housie at 7pm every Tuesday, and a

lucky members draw every ursday at 5.30pm. And if

you enjoy a utter the Club has a 12 machine gaming

room and the one and only TAB facility in Lyttelton -

something to keep in mind with Melbourne Cup and

NZ Trotting Cup coming up next month.

New members are most welcome. Enquire about

joining today! For a limited time the club is offering $10

memberships.

Ford Focus continues tradition of old

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

WHEN I LOOK back over time

I simply can’t understand why I

let two of my favourite cars go to

new owners, I made some very

bad decisions.

They were both three-door

Escorts, a Mk 1 and Mk 2 Sport.

Today I’m hankering to own

an Escort again, but prices are

astronomical and they don’t often

come up for sale.

The Escort of eras gone by

represented honesty and sporty

performance, depending on the

model. Over the years it morphed

into various shapes and designs,

its concept retained in today’s Focus

– the natural successor to that

incredibly successful nameplate.

The Focus has just been transformed

for 2019, there are four

models for New Zealand, three

hatchbacks and a wagon. The

latter has a 2-litre diesel engine,

but all the others share a threecylinder

petrol driveline. There

are three levels of specification, a

Trend opens the series at $31,990,

ST-Line adds around $5000,

while a Titanium variant lists at

$41,990. This evaluation focuses

on the latter (pardon the pun).

For interest’s sake, the Trend

wagon is listed at $37,990.

The Titanium is plush, it is very

well specced and a value choice. It

is a compact car but it will easily

cater for four, or even five when

necessary. Each occupant gets a

respectable amount of head and

leg room, even in the rear. Load

space is also on a par with what

you would expect from a mid-size

hatchback, but those interested

in more cargo carrying ability

could well be interested in the

entry-level wagon, it would be my

choice in the series.

Under the bonnet sits the

delightful three-cylinder, 1.5-litre

engine. It must be said that threepotters

are different in the way

they sound and react, not that

that is a problem, but there are

harmonics which the occupants

can pick up. I’m a big threecylinder

engine fan, they develop

strong low down torque, and that

FORD FOCUS: Three-cylinder enigne.

is what you want in any engine,

and if you add in turbocharged

boost then the Focus feels feisty

and decisive when asked to perform.

Ford claims a very impressive

134kW (6000rpm) and

240Nm power outputs from the

twin-camshaft unit. The torque

output is delivered low in the rev

band at 1600rpm with a long,

broad stretch to 4500rpm and

that contributes to the feeling of

willingness and urgency. Sure,

a standstill to 100km/h time of

8.9sec isn’t earth-shattering, but

the Focus in this form does have

punch through the mid-range

and that’s what is important, it

will easily make a 5sec 80km/h to

120km/h overtaking manoeuvre.

Drive is channelled through an

eight-speed automatic transmission

and it harnesses the available

power beautifully, the proximity

of ratios means the engine never

goes off song and the correct gear

is always selected for each moment.

The gearing is such that it also

makes economic use of fuel. Ford

claims a 6.1l/100km (46mpg)

combined cycle average. The fuel

usage readout on the evaluation

car was mostly listing around

7.6l/100km (37mpg) with tempting

4.6l/100km (61mpg) available

instantaneously at 100km/h, the

engine turning over leisurely at

1600rpm.

Like its predecessors, the Focus

has quality handling. I’ve long

admired the way European Fords

tackle tight and twisty terrain,

• Price – Ford Focus

Titanium, $41,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4378mm; width, 1823mm;

height, 1454mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1497cc, 134kW,

240Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

the Focus steers with precision

and accuracy. The Titanium-spec

Focus does sit a little firm on the

road and that has a lot to do with

the low profile tyres (235/40 x

18in), however, the ride isn’t compromised

greatly, there is compliance

within the suspension.

Ford of New Zealand, and the

dealerships, must still be happy

with their position in the marketplace.

Ranger is still the number

one seller nationwide, and the rest

of the Ford line-up is ticking over

consistently.

The Focus is there to tempt

the small-to-mid hatchback

(or wagon) buyer and it is very

capable in all conditions. And

with petrol sitting at around $2.20

a litre, that wee engine is a real

money-saver.
