TRIUMPHANT: St Andrew’s College’s first XI celebrate the school’s first ever Gillette Cup title.

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ANDREW’S College made

history at Hagley Park last

week by winning the country’s

top prize in secondary school

cricket for the first time.

Playing Hamilton Boys’ High

School in the final round top

of the table Gillette Cup clash,

the St Andrew’s first XI carded

a 174-run victory to claim the

piece of silverware for the first

time in its 29-year history. This

year is also the first time St Andrew’s

had qualified for the six

strong national tournament after

winning their way through

the Canterbury regional qualifiers

which has been dominated

by Christchurch Boys’ High

School in recent years.

“It’s bigger than all of us in

the team, knowing that a lot of

old boys that have been texting

in support is great. It’s huge for

the school,” said St Andrew’s

captured the win was extra

Mike Johnston, who has been

with the first XI for close to two

decades.

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has

labelled the expansion of Merivale

Mall as “absolutely nuts.”

Speaking at what was a packed

house at former Mayor Garry

Moore’s weekly Tuesday Club, Ms

Dalziel fielded questions from the

audience after delivering

a speech.

A member of

the audience labelled

the expansion

as “absolutely

stupid.”

Ms Dalziel responded

by stating “it’s absolutely

nuts” but went on to clarify the

city council’s hands were tied in

the decision to grant the mall resource

consent for the expansion

without public consultation.

“It is so frustrating when people

assume that you can make decisions

because you think they are

the right decision to make, but

under planning law you will just

be appealed to the environment

court and the environment court

will settle it anyway.

Reg’s Royal cooking buddy

• By Sophie Cornish

REG STEDMAN is usually lively

and full of jokes – but the 92-yearold

was left speechless when he was

joined by a special sous chef during

his cooking class.

The Duchess of Cornwall visited

the cooking course Mr Stedman

was on during her visit with Prince

Charles to Christchurch.

Everyone on the course had

been vetted by police prior to the

visit, so he knew Camilla would

be there.

But Mr Stedman, from Papanui,

was a little more than

surprised when he was placed

next to Camilla as they prepared

a bean salad.

Mr Stedman, who hails from

Essex in England, and came to

New Zealand in 1958 to marry

his pen pal, was lost for words

standing next to Camilla.

“Backward in coming forward,”

he said.

“It never dawned on me, I was

surprised, I thought ‘what have I

done to deserve this?

“I’m quite a retiring person, it

wouldn’t have bothered me if I

had been standing behind two or

three people.”

Mr Stedman shook Camilla’s

hand and spoke with her about

her farm in Gloucestershire, and

whether the food was organic.

“In hindsight, I realised all eyes

were probably on me because I

was with the knife!,” he said of

the security staff which follow

the Royals.

After the cooking demonstration

at the Salvation Army building in

the central city, Camilla helped

to launch the new Senior Chef

cookbook, Easy Recipes for One

or Two.

Senior Chef, is a free programme

for older people living

alone or with one other person

and is funded by the Canterbury

District Health Board and

Pegasus Health.

It has a focus on connecting

the community, combating loneliness

and providing a new sense

of purpose.

Active ageing is a key focus of

Camilla’s work, who said she was

“delighted” to be at the event,

during their six-day visit of New

Zealand.

“It’s a real pleasure to be for

once surrounded by people my

age. I’m feeling a lot better and

I’m so impressed by everything

you’re doing here.

“I do think it is so important as

you grow older to be able to cook.

MASTERCHEF: Reg Stedman was lost for words when the Duchess of Cornwall appeared beside

him at his cooking class.

PHOTO PEGASUS HEALTH

This school will re-energise older

people to like cooking again, and

eating good food for your body

and your mind is vitally important

as you get older,” she said.

• GO ALONG: The Senior Chef programme is free and runs

classes through-out the city and in Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Lincoln,

Ashburton and Kaikoura. Contact Pegasus Health for more

information.

Rangi Ruru students’

cookbook launch a success

• By Bea Gooding

A YEAR of hard work has paid

off for a group of Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School entrepreneurs after

last week’s successful launch

of their unique cookbook -

“Spoonful of Spice.”

Year 13 students Lucy Johnson,

Tulsi Lathia, Sarah Lawrence,

Victoria Park and photographer

Mette Van Pallandt made sure

their project was more than just a

cookbook.

The 100-page spread dished

up recipes, stories and “nuggets

of wisdom” from migrants and

refugees in Christchurch.

Spoonful of Spice head of production

Victoria Park felt proud

because the cookbook was not

for the benefit of the team, but for

the benefit of the community.

“It feels great to be doing something

that will also be helping

others as well,” she said.

The last two years saw the

team involved with The Lion

Foundation Young Enterprise

programme, where the venture

was presented to a panel of business

experts and the idea came to

fruition.

City councillor Anne Galloway,

also involved in the project, was

present at the launch, sharing

how food “evokes memories of

old” - just like her grandmother’s

steamed pudding.

Said Cr Galloway: “One day

we talked about how wonderful

it was bringing different cultures

and food together - and the idea

was born.”

Head of finance Tulsi Lathia

said the team learned a great deal

from the immigrant women they

collaborated with.

“What I’ve learned is they’re

always determined to do something

positive and share what

they know in the community,”

she said.

Spoonful of Spice is now available

for purchase at Rangi Ruru

and on their website. All proceeds

will go to Immigrant Resettlement

Services in Christchurch.

NOR’WEST NEWS

THE NEXT school year is

already looking like it will be

off to a TREEmendous start for

Burnside Primary School which

will be getting new outdoor

learning spaces in the new year.

TREEmendous – a joint initiative

between Project Crimson

and the Mazda Foundation has

selected four schools across the

country including Burnside

to receive $10,000 towards

dreams to life.

The school was selected alongside

Hobsonville Point Primary

School, Roslyn School and Stanhope

Road School to transform

an unused area of their school

grounds into an outdoor learning

area through the planting of

native trees and shrubs.

Six finalists also received $500

towards their projects.

The TREEmendous team will

help each school develop an area

that encourages a deeper connection

with nature and the chance

to learn first-hand about the environment

in an outdoor setting.

Principal Matt Bateman said

Burnside aims to create pupils

that are successful in a changing

world with the challenges

that they will face with climate

change.

“Pupils need to respect their

environment and be the instruments

for change. To do this,

they need a place where they

feel connected with the environment,

which is why it is so important

to have outdoor learning

spaces in schools,” he says.

Judicial review in August

• From page 1

“If the law says you don’t notify

then there is no ability to listen to

the community and neighbours,”

she said.

This comes as a date for the judicial

review over the expansion,

which was launched by Merivale

residents, has been confirmed for

August 31.

Merivale resident and former

barrister John Burn, who is

spearheading the review alongside

Aikmans Bar and Restaurant

owner Frank van Schaijik, did

not share the Mayor’s perspective

on the matter.

“The Mayor has indicated that

the legislation gave the commissioner

little choice, but had he

accepted that a significant effect

on traffic was likely, he and the

council would have been obliged

by that legislation to hear public

opposition,” he said.

Mr Burn felt the public deserved

input into the proposal.

A city council hearings panel led

by commissioner Ken Gimblett

concluded there would be no

adverse effects on the community,

and the expansion would have

“negligible” impact on Papanui

Rd traffic volumes. City council

head of resource consents John

Higgins said the panel appreciated

the public concerns but was bound

by the statutory process under the

Resource Management Act.

The mall’s owner, TEL Property

Nominees Ltd, was granted

a resource consent from the city

council, without any public consultation,

in August to almost double

the size of the mall, build a threelevel

car park and 24 homes.

If the judge finds the decision to

grant the resource consent without

public consultation to be unjust,

they will ask the city council to

reconsider their decision.

Cycling for grandad

• By Matt Slaughter

WILLIAM HICKFORD’S

grandad Roy Pemberton cycled

the length of New Zealand to

raise money for St John New

Zealand seven years ago.

Now, William will do the same

to raise money for people like Mr

Pemberton, who was diagnosed

with dementia earlier this year.

The year 13 Cashmere High

School student will be joined by

his friend since childhood, fellow

Cashmere student Holly Ffowcs

Williams on the South Island leg

of the ride.

They have started a Givealittle

page aiming to raise $10,000 for

Alzheimer’s New Zealand and

are calling themselves Team

Wolly.

Said William: “Since he [Mr

Pemberton] got diagnosed with

dementia this year, I thought I

just wanted to help support him

and what our family’s going

through because it’s quite a tough

time so I just wanted to give

back to him by raising funds for

Alzheimers New Zealand.”

William will start his ride at

Cape Reinga on December 28

and bike about 100km a day until

January 23, when he estimates

he will finish the about 3000km

journey to the bottom of the

South Island.

NUMBER ONE

Holly will meet William on

January 8 in Picton and they will

ride to the finish line together.

Holly said she was inspired

to join William on part of his

journey after seeing the effects of

Alzheimer’s and dementia firsthand

in a volunteer role she does.

“In the past few years, I’ve been

a volunteer at a Nurse Maude

Hospice Shop in Christchurch

and we get a lot of customers who

are from lots of different retirement

villages across Christchurch

and a few have come in with

family members that have had

dementia and Alzheimer’s, so it’s

just been really heartbreaking to

see, she said.

“I think putting my love

cycling towards something like

this, it’s the way I can [help].”

Holly said the ride will be hard

work but the cause she and William

are riding for will make it

worth it.

“The most of done in one day

has been about 112km and some

days we’re doing at least 100km

with a good radical climb, so it’s

going to be really mentally challenging

but I think you’ve got to

remember why you’re doing it.”

William said his grandad and

granny Hilda Pemberton are

appreciative of what he is setting

out to do.

A year in review

When I was a child the year used to drag

itself slowly through its 12-month cycle,

but now, so many decades later, it’s

practically breaking speed records! 2019

has been a strong year for highlights and

the challenges have felt ever-so-slightly

easier – or maybe I’m just finally learning

to adapt and modify my response to

continued stress.

It’s true, sometimes you’re so busy with

the mechanics of your occupation that the

opportunity to reflect on the bigger picture

doesn’t present itself, but it’s so worthwhile

when you do. So, where did I get it right? In

the interests of simplicity, I said ‘yes’ more

than ‘no’. ‘Yes’ to requests for help, especially

if they delivered on our desire to give back

or lift up those members of our community

who are vulnerable or in great need. ‘Yes’

was also the answer when asked if I’d speak

or present on personal or professional

topics including business culture, resilience,

consistent high performance and

mentoring. And some of the biggest ‘yeses’

went to incredible people who approached

us about the possibility of joining our

company in the search for a business

that provided inspiration in addition to a

rewarding career path.

I firmly believe this commitment to getting

good people on board, people that embrace

our culture and our values, is why we hold

the awards for No. 1 Residential Office

nationally and internationally for Harcourts

and No. 1 Franchise in New Zealand for earnings

per consultant. A firm ‘no’ (or two) also made

an appearance, however, when I met people

considering a real estate career while wanting

to avoid accountability, hosting open homes or

training – the list went on, unlike my tolerance! I

may be old-fashioned, but it will always be a ‘no’ if

you front up to an interview in jeans or arrive late,

under-prepared and over-entitled.

So, what else has stood out this year? An active,

even marketplace with interest rates at very

low levels making first-home owners feel more

optimistic than they have for a long time. More

and more legislation and an acceptance that

the AML (anti-money laundering) requirements

which began last year, whilst inconvenient at

times, are here to stay. Landlords have also had to

continue incorporating changes in the way their

rental properties are presented, maintained and

tenanted, and this looks unlikely to abate.

Professionally, we have also had the incredible

benefit of Chris Kennedy (formerly the CEO for

Harcourts NZ) joining us as General Manager.

To those of you that read my monthly column, I

wish you a Christmas that makes you feel happy

rather than stretched and stressed, and a 2020

full of promise.

Papanui pupils plant

natives for the future

Win for STAC

• By Bea Gooding

ATTENTION: Landscaping Co-ordinator Justin Farrell from

GSL (Grounds and Services Ltd) instructs pupils from Papanui

Primary School how to plant the trees. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

TAKING ownership of the

environment was what motivated

Papanui Primary School students

to lend a hand in the planting

of native vegetation along the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

(CNC).

The planting took place at the

newly constructed Cranford St

roundabout over three days last

week, teaching the young helpers

the importance of maintaining

their environment.

More than 60 students between

five and ten-years-old participated,

planting native seeds sourced

locally such as Kowhai trees.

The school’s principal Paul

Kingston said the children often

worked together in a buddy system

which developed a “positive

school culture.”

Mr Kingston believed more

young people should get involved

in taking care of local environments.

“There is only one earth - start

small with your own community

and your own actions,” he said.

The $240m motorway project

began construction in November

2016, aiming to reduce congestion

on routes flowing in and out

of Christchurch.

manager Melanie Williams said

the planting on the CNC motorway

was a “big part” of the plan.

“The project won’t just be a ribbon

of asphalt through the landscape;

the concept is to create a

parkland corridor which softens

the edges of the new motorway,”

she said.

Ms Williams said the children

understood the positive impact

on the environment by planting

trees and were “really keen” to

help out.

“Along the corridor, we’ll be

planting 400 trees and 800,000

plants and shrubs. This will bring

native birds back into the area

and create more oxygen.”

Construction of the CNC

motorway is expected to be

completed halfway through

2020.

“It’s been an amazing journey

this year with these boys.

It’s been 18 years I’ve been

coaching St Andrew’s, it’s the

first time we’ve been here and

we’ve won it. We’ve just got a

great team culture and they’ve

worked for each other,” said

Johnston.

After being put into bat,

St Andrew’s opening pair of

Mariu and Harrison Darling

made a composed start before

picking up the run rate and

producing what turned out to

be a match-winning opening

stand of 142 before Mariu fell

for 89.

The solid foundation allowed

the team to reach 276/8 from

their 50 overs.

“We were really surprised

that Hamilton put us into bat

and Rhys [Mariu] and Harrison

[Darling] set the tone

this morning with some great

batting and we knew if we got

more than 250 it was going to

be too many for them to chase

down,” said Johnston.

St Andrew’s went about

defending their total by restricting

Hamilton Boys’ early

in their chase which resulted

in a required run rate of eight

an over by the 20th over. The

pressure eventually took its toll

resulting in Hamilton Boys’

being dismissed for 102 in the

35th over.

“We knew that is we set the

right fields and bowled to them

it was going to be really tough

for them,” said Mariu.

The St Andrew’s captain

capped off the great day by being

named as the player of the

tournament at the closing ceremony

after scoring 254 runs

at an average of 50.80 while

leading his side to their first

title. Alongside Mariu in the

tournament team where fellow

Twenty years supporting

Bishopdale community

THE BISHOPDALE Community

Trust celebrated its anniversary

last week. Community

Development Worker Chris

Coles reflects on 20 years of

supporting the Bishopdale

Community.

The initial idea for the trust

was formed well before the date

of the anniversary- when the

trust was incorporated under

the Charitable Trusts Act on

December 2.

Eric Park, a member of the

local methodist parish, had

seen the work that was being

done by the Bryndwr Churches

Community Support Society and

decided to research the need in

Bishopdale for a similar group.

He visited local churches to

gauge their interest and support

and, with representatives of local

groups, the trust was founded.

Although Eric is no longer part

of the trust, many original trust

members are still actively involved

today.

The trust was set up to help

residents and families develop

skills for family and community

life, and to help people with

needs to be part of the community.

Over the past two decades,

it has successfully achieved these

aims, meeting the changing

needs of the community with an

impressive range of activities.

Looking back, BCT has run

courses on leadership, self-esteem

and confidence, parenting,

first aid, cooking and many more

helpful skills and activities.

It’s run family camps, garage

sales, antique shows, games and

has mentored, supported and

welcomed new residents to the

area.

The trust has been home to

groups interested in gardening,

craft, yoga, walking, and

games, as well as hosting regular

coffee mornings and community

lunches where folk can get

together, have a bite to eat and a

good old natter.

None of this would have been

possible without active involvement

and support from the wonderful

Bishopdale community.

Whilst usually employing a

small number of part-time staff,

a huge amount of work over the

years has been carried out by

volunteers. Currently BCT has

over sixty volunteers; people who

care enough to freely give their

time to make Bishopdale a better

place to live, work and play.

Here’s to the next twenty years.

Roadworks cause

restaurant closure

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BANGLADESHI restaurant

has become a casualty of the

ongoing Riccarton Rd roadworks.

Nobanno manager Christopher

Palma said the roadworks

were the “last straw”.

The site near the intersection of

Clarence St and Straven Rd is its

third location in Christchurch in

12 years.

The restaurant first opened

on the corner of Armagh and

Colombo St in the central city

before it was destroyed in the

February, 2011, earthquake.

“We lost everything in the

earthquake,” Mr Palma said.

They then moved to Ferry Rd

in Ferrymead, but the business

suffered there too from roadworks.

“We have gone through loss

after loss, it is heartbreaking,” he

said.

The city council halting roadworks

on Riccarton Rd to help

businesses leading into Christmas

had come too late, he said.

“It is not enough because the

damage has been done,” Mr

Palma said.

The year of ongoing roadworks

NOR’WEST NEWS

had put the restaurant in debt,

he said.

Mr Palma is now job hunting.

Since February, Fulton Hogan

has been working on the

Harakeke to Matipo Sts section

of Riccarton Rd.

Dumplings on Riccarton

owner Peter Wah said it has

been a very “strenuous” past six

months.

On top of a family tragedy

which forced the business to

close temporaily, the roadworks

were also causing major issues

attracting customers.

“It has been quieter, it is very

hard to make up for all those

losses we will never catch up.

In any business, you need car

parks on the front,” Mr Wah

said.

But he had very loyal customers

who have helped in every way

they can.

They don’t plan to close.

He is concerned businesses

on Riccarton Rd will lose most

of its car parking following the

roadworks.

The city council said when

work is completed there will be

time-restricted parking provided

to the east of Rotherham St and

south of Riccarton Rd.

Our region of Canterbury can

boast easy access to many

wonderful recreational spaces

and as we head into the summer

holidays, this is a great way to

spend time with friends or family.

We love taking our dog down to

the Groynes, so I enjoyed being

invited as local MP to be a judge

at the opening of the new Kaiapoi

Dog Park. Dog parks provide

great opportunities for community

building and I’m thrilled we now

have another venue for our

residents to meet new friends and

connect to old ones.

My community constituent

clinics in the Papanui RSA are

proving popular, with great uptake

within the community. I enjoyed

meeting with Northern Christchurch

constituents in back-to-back

meetings last week. I’m here to

help, so if you or someone you

know needs help, please email

belfast@parliament.govt.nz .

Meeting with the White Ribbon

riders during their ride through

Canterbury to raise awareness

around domestic violence was

a great way to hear more about

this powerful initiative and the

life-changing work so many of our

fellow Cantabrians are undertaking

to prevent domestic violence

and mental-health issues in our

communities. Well done to all the

participants and everyone who

supported them.

From my family to yours, we

wish you a Merry Christmas and

a peaceful and healthy new year.

I’m looking forward to continuing to

work hard for you in 2020. I entered

my previous career in the mentalhealth

field because I wanted to

make a difference and politics

is a way of continuing to make

that difference. It’s through being

accessible to you and ensuring our

region has the infrastructure and

resources we need that I can be an

effective and relevant MP.

Young volleyballers thrive

on beach and court

• By Jacob Page

BURNSIDE HIGH School junior

girls volleyballers dominated on

both the sand and the court last

week.

Not only did their indoor volleyball

team win back-to-back

South Island titles but Rosa Vesty

and Taylah Holdem took out the

beach title as well.

The duo will head to Auckland

in February to represent their

school at the nationals, where

they finished fifth last year.

Teacher in charge of volleyball

Sam Ryburn said they had a

good chance of medalling this

year.

“Last year they made the quarter-finals

and lost to the eventual

winners so if they can improve

on that they should go close.”

He said both Rosa and Taylah

were key parts in the indoor success

having been named co-most

valuable players at the South

Island championships at Pioneer

Stadium.

Burnside took down Cashmere

High School 25-22, 25-9 in the

final.

Both teams had to overcame

an early loss in crossover pool

play to make the final.

Burnside suffered a loss to

Christchurch Girls’ High School,

while Cashmere High went

down to Richmond’s Waimea

College.

Ryburn said the team refocused

well after the loss and was

able to bounce-back.

SPORT

TALENT: Burnside High School junior volleyball team won the

South Island title for the second year in a row.

“They came at us and really

pushed us but sometimes you

need a loss like that in a tournament

just to get you on the right

track again.”

He said it was great the team

could win back-to-back Canterbury

and South Island titles which

was a first for the school.

BRIGHT FUTURES: Rosa

Vesty, left, and Taylah Holdem

capped a stellar week by

claiming the South Island junior

beach volleyball title at the

Pioneer Stadium Pit. ​

“We have a lot of depth in

volleyball at the school and a

supportive environment which

helps bring success at both a junior

and senior level over a number of

years,” he said.

Park

Cemetery

name

change

A CEMETERY remembering

those who lost their lives in the

February 22, 2011 earthquake

could be one step closer to

having its name changed.

The city council is seeking

feedback on whether the Avonhead

Park Cemetery should be

renamed the Avonhead Memorial

Cemetery.

It has gone out for consultation

following a request from the

Friends of Avonhead Cemetery

for the name change and this is

supported by the Quake Families

Trust.

The cemetery was developed

in the late 1970s as a lawn

cemetery without visible grave

markers to give the cemetery a

park-like appearance.

Following the February 22

2011 earthquake, the city council

designed an interment site for victims

at Avonhead Park Cemetery.

Feedback can be made to the

city council until January 22.

Young humanitarian wins

Fred Hollows award

• By Claire Booker

BEN DOWDLE has been

recognised in New Zealand’s

first-ever Fred Hollows Humanity

Awards.

The Mairehau Primary School

pupil was presented a certificate

last Friday at a school assembly.

The awards, which were open

to all Year 6 students throughout

New Zealand, are part of a global

movement created to acknowledge

passionate children striving to

improve the world around them.

A spokeswoman from the Fred

Hollows Foundation said humanity

in New Zealand’s young people

was “deeply evident” in the

large number of students across

the country who were nominated

for the awards.

Said assistant principal

Amanda Chisnall, who nominated

Ben for the award: “Ben is a

kind and caring student who goes

out of his way to help others. He

embodies our Mairehau Primary

School values of respect, believe,

aspire and achieve.

“Nothing is ever an issue for

Ben. He always puts in 110 per

cent effort into everything that

he sets his mind to. Ben truly embodies

the values of compassion,

integrity and kindness.”

YOUNG ACHIEVER:

Mairehau Primary

School assistant

principal Amanda

Chisnall was

pleased to see

Year 6 student Ben

Dowdle presented

with a Fred Hollows

Humanity Award by

William McGrath

from Specsavers. ​

About 70 students were nominated

for the awards across New

Zealand, and Ben said it was an

honour to receive the certificate.

He “felt special that not everyone

could be nominated” and is

looking to develop his leadership

skills within the school.

“It’s nice to receive awards for

the effort that is put in,” he said.

13-year-old

achieves dream

MONET SCHUTTE has achieved

her dream at 13-years-old.

From a very young age, Monet

has had a dream to perform

internationally.

And last week, she received a

standing ovation at the Vienna

Concert Hall in Austria after

performing her original song,

Like You Did Before.

“Singing on stage in Vienna

was a dream come true. I am so

excited that I now have reached

one of my musical goals. It was

the first song I ever wrote, and

it has a very special meaning,”

Monet said.

Written about a friend with

depression, the song won the International

Sounds of Children’s

Rights Songwriting Competition

held in Austria.

She was awarded two prestigious

gold coin awards for her

achievement.

She wrote and recorded the

song with her mentor Sacha Vee

at SOLE Music Academy earlier

this year and decided to enter it

into the competition sponsored

by UNICEF.

Said Monet: “One of my

friends, unfortunately, suffers

from depression and so I wrote

this song about how I tried to

help.”

When Monet received the

news she had made it to the top

10 contestants from around the

world, she only had two months

to prepare for the trip and get

performance-ready.

This was a challenge, since

Monet had to learn piano to accompany

herself.

However, with the guidance

from Vee she put in the time and

is now reaping the reward.

Qualified team with a focus

on vehicle safety

The team at Allan’s Tyre & Auto, Burnside

includes fully qualified, MTA-approved

and highly experienced mechanics, who

can turn their hand to most types of vehicle

repairs and maintenance.

Although they are Mitsubishi specialists

with over 20 years’ experience between

them, they welcome cars of all makes and

models and the friendly team are there to

make sure that all their customers leave in a

vehicle that is safe on New Zealand roads.

They can give your car a thorough check,

and their well-equipped workshop and

expertise means that if your car needs

repairs or new parts to pass its WOF, these

can be carried out on-site with as little

disruption to your busy life as possible.

Their focus is on making sure customers

leave in a vehicle that is safe – they provide

wheel alignments, which improve handling

and fuel economy, service and repair CV

joints, check and replace cambelts, and will

inspect your brakes to make sure they are

fully operational.

Summer is a key time to check your

car’s coolant – before heading off on your

summer holidays.

In short, at Allan’s Tyre & Auto they can

do anything from changing oil to extend

the life of the engine, inspecting your car

exhaust and muffler to make sure it is

not leaking, right through to checking,

repairing or replacing your car’s suspension,

shock-absorbers and steering.

Although their experience means they

can work on any car, Allan’s Tyre & Auto

is the only independent workshop in

Christchurch specialising in Mitsubishi.

That means they are experienced with

Mitsubishis of all models including the

newer ones with common rail diesel and

they have the latest Mitsubishi Factory Scan

tool. This can code keyless entry remotes,

immobiliser keys and scan your vehicle for

fault codes.

Located at 164 Kendal Avenue, the

to welcome customers old and new. Visit

Tasty Bites

Vegan alternatives to favourite dishes

Taco lovers - you owe it to

yourselves to indulge in these

delicious meatless tacos.

These can also be enjoyed

with soft tortillas

Tacos de Hongo

(Mushroom Tacos)

Serves 2

Ingredients

For the black beans

1 can black beans, drained and

rinsed

For the mushroom filling

6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

vegetable stock

30 button mushrooms, stemmed

and chopped

2 ½ Tbsp (non-spicy) chilli powder

1 ½ Tbsp paprika (plus more for

tomato salad)

1 Tbsp dried minced onion

sea salt

¼ cup fresh lime juice (from

about 2 limes), divided

2 ½ Tbsp natural tomato sauce

For the tomato salad and

guacamole

2 tomatoes, diced

½ red onion, diced

1 handful of fresh corriander,

chopped

1 avocado

garlic powder

For serving

4 lettuce leaves

6 hard-shelled tacos

hot sauce (optional)

Directions

Saute the garlic in a bit of

vegetable stock in a saucepan over

medium heat; add the chopped

mushrooms and sauté, stirring

occasionally, until mushrooms

shrink and become chewy. Add

the chilli, paprika, dried minced

onion, sea salt, and a couple of

tablespoons of fresh lime juice;

stir well to combine. Add the

tomato sauce and cook, stirring

occasionally. Taste and add more

tomato and/or spices, if desired.

Make the tomato salad:

Combine the diced tomatoes, red

onions, and corriander in a bowl

and squeeze some fresh lime juice

over; season with paprika and sea

salt to taste.

Make a quick guacamole:

Mash the avocado in a separate

bowl and season with sea salt, garlic

powder, and lime juice to taste.

Prepare a bed of lettuce for the

black beans.

Heat the taco shells. Build each

taco, starting with the mushroom

base, followed by the guacamole,

then finish with the tomato

salad on top. Drizzle with hot

sauce (if using). Serve with black

beans (simply heat and season as

desired).

Replace greasy wings at

a party with these spicy,

crunchy cauliflower bites.

Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower

Bites

Makes 6 cups

Ingredients

⅔ cup brown rice flour

2 Tbsp almond flour

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp dried parsley

1 head cauliflower, cut into

medium florets

⅓ cup hot sauce or barbecue

sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 230 deg C. Line

two trays with baking paper.

Combine the brown rice flour,

almond flour, tomato paste, garlic

powder, onion powder, paprika,

parsley, and ⅔ cup of water in a

blender. Puree until the batter

is smooth and thick. Transfer to

a bowl and add the cauliflower

florets; toss until the florets are

well coated with the batter.

Arrange in a single layer on the

trays, making sure that the florets

do not touch each other. Bake

for 20-25min, until crisp on the

edges. They will not get crispy all

over while still in the oven.

Remove from the heat and let

stand for 3min to crisp up a bit

more. Transfer to a bowl, drizzle

with sauce and serve immediately.

Timeless classic with

magnificent views

24 and 26 Bayview Road, Charteris Bay

Asking price: $950,000

NOR’WEST NEWS

Architecturally designed to blend in

to the hill and maximise the sun and

stunning uninterrupted views this 1977

pole house has an air and feel of quality

and longevity about it.

Over engineered and extremely strong,

there are 4 double bedrooms, bathroom

and laundry etc. on the middle level whilst

on the 3rd floor lovely large open plan

living, dining and kitchen flowing on to

a large North, Northwest facing deck,

perfect for drinking in those captivating

and ever changing views.

Cleverly designed to maximise the

winter sun whilst giving some relief from

the summer sun this property is both

sheltered from the prevailing wind and

very very private. Is set over 1723m2 on

2 separate titles which gives the option of

selling one if required. The properties are

both beautifully landscaped and planted

attracting plentiful birdlife and birdsong.

The lower level of the house is a

triple garage with excellent storage and

workshop areas and gives internal access

in to the house. Classical simplicity with

floor to ceiling windows, well insulated

and double glazed, all timbers are treated

and the property is on mains water and

sewerage. Good access and off-street

parking round off a very appealing

package.

This is the first time to the market but

my vendors are retiring reluctantly and

this very special and unique property will

need to have a new owner. Includes boat

shed on Paradise Beach.

Viewing by appointment only.
