she will also have her sights

set on fundraising $10,000

for Trees For Canterbury.

Ms Laing will begin Tour

Aotearoa from March 5, and she

will be joined by friends Chrissie

Rocks

still a

‘serious

problem’

• By Jess Gibson

REDCLIFFS Residents’

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh says there is still a

“serious problem” with rocks

which have come to the surface

of the beach near Shag Rock.

It comes around the time the

city council and Environment

Canterbury are set to review the

situation, which RRA members

believe started following the construction

of the Coastal Pathway

beside Clifton Beach.

Members first expressed their

concerns in October and said

they wanted the rock spoil

removed as it was ruining the

amenity of the sand.

Following those concerns, city

council staff told RRA the debris

would not be removed, claiming

it was “naturally occurring” in

spite of residents never having

seen rocks there in the past.

Staff said in November the

problem would be reviewed in

the new year to allow time for

the beach to return to its normal

state naturally.

Restored gun emplacements to reopen

A PIECE of history tucked away

at Godley Head has been restored

and is to reopen to the public.

Gun emplacements damaged in

battery.

Built in 1939, the battery is

ranked as one of the top ten New

Russell Irving a ‘big wheel’

at annual EstuaryFest

• By Dion Crooks

ONE MAN who knows how

crucial children are to the success

of community entertainment is

Russell Irving.

He has been the chief ticket

seller, child organiser and go-to

man at the ‘big wheel’ at all eight

of the EstuaryFests run by the Mt

Pleasant Residents’ Association,

including this year’s event, which

was held on Saturday.

His hand has always been first

up when the call goes out for volunteers

from Ferrymead Rotary,

which has helped with organising

parking and running sideshows

at the festivals.

Said Mr Irving on what keeps

bringing him back every year:

“The enthusiasm of the young

people and the joy on their faces

as they spin round and round.

“Their enjoyment rubs off on

you. You can’t help but have a

great day out as well.”

The traditional ferris wheel was

replaced with a lower-altitude

‘Sizzler’ version this year and it

proved hugely popular.

Largely because, in Mr Irving’s

seasoned judgment, the loweraltitude

ride was more attractive

and less threatening to a wider

Power bills should drop for winter

Companies

set to pass

on Orion cut

• By Jess Gibson

PEOPLE COULD see a small

drop in their power bills in time

for winter.

Electricity lines company

Orion will be reducing its prices

by an average of six per cent from

April 1.

The Christchurch city and

Selwyn district council-owned

company distributes power to

204,000 homes and businesses in

Canterbury.

But whether the reduction

in Orion’s prices is reflected in

people’s power bills will be up to

individual electricity companies.

The reduction in Orion’s prices

reflects a decrease of 7.4 per

cent in its cost of distribution,

partially off-set by a 1.4 per cent

increase in transmission costs

from the national grid operator,

Transpower.

Orion’s charges for distribution

and transmission costs combined

represent 36 per cent of the average

household power bill.

Consumer NZ head of research

Jessica Wilson said the changes

would shave an average of about

$3 off a monthly power bill. She

would expect the price drop to

be passed through by energy

retailers.

“We would be very surprised if

they were fudging the numbers

and trying to use it as an opportunity

to put up prices by an

equivalent amount.”

A Mercury NZ Ltd spokeswoman

said the company will be

passing on the reduction in lines

charges for customers.

“We will be communicating

directly with our customers

shortly about what this means for

them and how it relates to their

combined electricity charges.”

Meridian Energy is also likely

to drop its pricing.

Said a Meridian spokeswoman:

“We are still working through

pricing but historically we have

always passed through any

changes by the network companies.”

She said Meridian Energy will

have an answer for customers

within the next few weeks.

A Contact Energy spokeswoman

the company is working

on price changes across the country

but did not have anything to

share in terms of its approach at

the moment.

Said Orion chief executive Rob

Jamieson: “The key component

of the price reduction is the lower

interest rate environment, which

the Commerce Commission

has factored in to our cost of

distribution.”

Scott Winter

• By Jess Gibson

the Banks Peninsula Community

Scott Winter will now represent

the Mt Herbert Subdivision after

Your Local Views

Readers react to a city

council plan which could

see parts of Summit Rd

closed at night. The plan

comes in the aftermath of

the deaths of sisters Tayla

and Sunmara Alexander in a

car crash last year

John Day – There is no need

to close any part of the road at

this time. The problem is not the

road, it is the driver.

Sixty years ago my father

taught his children very carefully

how to drive the family car. Dad

was someone special and we

listened to him.

We cared for his car, and

we did not need to speed on

country roads because dad had

set reasonable standards by

example.

Kevin Crozier – What a joke.

As a resident living on the drag

strip called by normal people

Governors Bay Rd I can assure

you it has absolutely nothing to

do with the road.

It is solely the drivers. We

live in a 50km/h zone that

regularly has vehicles travelling

at 100km/h or more. This is

especially so late at night.

Closing the Summit Rd will

just mean these idiots will

find some where else to kill

themselves. At least up there

there there are far fewer residents

to keep awake all night.

My neighbours and I have all

given up phoning the police as

we all get the same response that

“we dont have the resources to

police over there.”

If you want to stop these deaths

then get the cars and idiots off

the road.

Geoff Farrant – I am

probably the most regular user of

the Summit Rd from the Kiwi to

Gebbies. I own a farm just past

Kennedys Bush. I consider the

road a cyclist track which I use.

I have had three incidents

where I have taken evasive action

in eight years. Twice I was forced

off the road by forestry trucks.

They should not be up there.

And yes the 60km/h is

appropriate.

I have always found that

most of the users drove to the

TRAGEDY: Tayla Alexander (left) and her sister Sunmara

Alexander both died following a crash on Summit Rd last year.

conditions, and 60km/h was

quite common. The new law

just sets up the rules and allows

enforcement.

The main problems occur at

night. I have had four cars into

or through my fences. Two stolen

and one burnt.

So basically there is no

problem. Just a few non-law

abiding people who risk all

and will one day cause some

significant damage to the area.

But we cannot keep closing

areas and making rules. There

are many evening users such as

the photographers who watch the

southern lights.

There are some things that

need to be done promptly.

The road up to the sign of the

Kiwi needs addition of passing

cycleways on the way up.

In many cases this could be

done cheaply with maybe some

clever piping and concrete covers.

But I leave that to the engineers.

This is the busiest and most scary

cycle route in Canterbury.

It should have been the

first target for a cycleway in

the region. Downhill is less

of a problem as the cyclists

move more in line with traffic

speeds.

And, of course, more quality

parking areas. A safety issue

as parking on a narrow road

just makes it dangerous. Sealed

marked parking encourages

better use.

Andrea Davis – I read the

article about the Summit Rd and

it should completely be closed at

night. There is nothing up on the

road to do at night except get into

trouble.

It would be a move in the right

direction for keeping the land

and the people safe.

Pat McIntosh – Thanks for

the opportunity for feedback.

There is nothing wrong with

the Summit Rd – it is a perfectly

normal hill road, in other words

it is narrow and twisty with

drop-offs. People have crashes on

it because of the way they drive,

not because of the road.

It would be a great shame if

the average driver was deprived

of the access and the stunning

views because a few people get

behind the wheel when they are

drunk or stoned, or drive too

fast for the conditions and lose

control.

This could happen on any road

in New Zealand, and indeed

does. But a lower speed limit and

maybe a few chicanes, rumble

strips or speed bumps might help

deter dangerous driving up there.

Dave Hammond – The

Summit Rd is beautiful to drive

both day and night and the

experience should not be denied

to the many because of a few who

decide to test their driving skills

at the risk of their own and other

people’s lives.

To those who see the road as

a challenge, no amount of speed

limits or safety barriers will stop

them. Put in bumps and extra

police patrols and take the cars

off the offenders, but don’t put

that lovely drive out of bounds

to the majority of peaceful

appreciators.

Readers respond to

last week’s article about

Lyttelton’s Mitre Tavern,

which has become

increasingly derelict since it

was closed due to damage

from the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Barry Smart – Would

be great to have a copy of the

new tavern. I well remember

going there prior to the

earthquakes.

Bob Duff: I was a barman at

the Mitre for eight years during

the 90s.

The first beer I ever had in a

bar was at the Mitre.

It holds the oldest licence

in Canterbury and has a rich

history and unique place in

people’s hearts in Lyttelton.

I would love to see it rebuilt to

its original weatherboard exterior

with a full length veranda along

the front.

Upstairs could be backpacker

accommodation or something

similar and a theme restaurant/

bar with the history of Lyttelton

and the characters who drank

and worked in Lyttelton.

How do people move on

when that is thrust in your

face every time you drive to

Lyttelton?

At the end of the day it’s

just about money to Mr Ward.

But the building and people

who loved the place deserve

better.

The vision of volunteers

Oil spills always a concern

Environment

Canterbury

deputy

harbourmaster

Guy Harris

writes about

marine oil

spills and how

and why the appropriate

responses are determined

in light of a recent incident

near Akaroa Heads

THANKFULLY, marine oil

spills are rare in Canterbury.

Environment Canterbury

works proactively with operators

to help ensure they do not have

oil spills, and that appropriate

response equipment is available

should a spill occur. However,

when an oil spill does happen,

we have powers under the

Maritime Transport Act 1994 to

intervene.

When determining the appropriate

response, ECan maintains

a number of oil spill response

equipment sites around the region,

at Lyttelton and Akaroa, as

well as Christchurch, Kaikōura

and Timaru.

Our equipment and team of

trained responders allow for a

swift response to a spill. Gear

and training of responders is

funded through the Oil Pollution

Fund, managed by Maritime

New Zealand and created

by a levy on shipping.

On receiving a report of a spill,

we must first verify the report

and identify a few facts, including:

· What type of oil is it?

· Where is the oil?

· How much oil is there?

· Where is it moving to?

· What sensitive sites are nearby?

Armed with this information,

a specific response can be

mounted. We have a comprehensive

response plan to draw on,

which provides guidance on how

to respond and allows for local

sensitivities and resources to be

identified and protected. An important

part of any response is

the notification and involvement

of key stakeholders.

Every spill response will have

differing actions and complexities,

but the aim is always to help the

environment to recover. As such,

actions taken should have an

overall net environmental benefit

– ie: the response should leave the

environment in a better condition

than if the oil were left there.

A recent oil pollution incident

occurred near Akaroa heads. A

recreational boat hit a rock and

sunk quickly; thankfully, everybody

was retrieved safely.

However, our incident

response team received a call

about a possible oil slick in the

area. Using reports from local

tour boat operators and the harbourmaster’s

office navigation

cameras, we ascertained that

the slick was a very thin sheen

of diesel, most likely from the

sunken boat.

The most effective and prompt

manner of removing the remaining

oil was to salvage the vessel.

The vessel’s insurer engaged a

marine contractor to recover

the vessel and contain the oil

onboard.

The response included assessments

of the local wildlife

and sensitive sites, access to the

area, and response options that

may be utilised. The contractor

checked the area; apart from a

small bit of flotsam, which was

collected, no sign of the boat

was found – even using sonar.

• WHAT YOU CAN DO TO

HELP: If you do discover an

oil spill, whether on the sea

or land, please phone the

incident response team on

our 24-hour hotline, 0800

765 588 – we are ready and

waiting.

No more diesel has been spotted

since, in spite of the area being

checked multiple times by local

operators on our behalf.

It is likely that the thin sheen

of diesel would have been broken

up by the swell and then would

have evaporated quickly in the

hot weather.

To give an idea of how little

diesel it takes to make a badlooking

spill, around 100ml

– less than half a cup – of diesel

can disperse to create a rainbow

sheen (which is about 3-4 microns

thick) the size of a tennis

court. Oil spill response is about

working out the most effective

methods of response that causes

the least environmental harm.

On a final note, recently another

call came into the incident response

team regarding a thin rainbow

sheen in Akaroa, this time

around the wharf in French Bay.

Contractors have tested the

pipework and tanks associated

with the diesel bowser on the

wharf, but nothing has been

found to be wrong and investigations

will continue.

As an aside, it is worth noting

that the wharf is currently in

the early planning stage of a

Christchurch City Council rebuild

project and the fuel supply

infrastructure is being discussed

as part of this.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands.

Each week she introduces a new bird found

in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the

understanding of the values and uniqueness of

the area.

Don’t let the clever

pukeko fool you

THE PUKEKO or swamp hen

are a well-known, heavyweight

native resident – with male birds

weighing up to 1.1kg.

Some people may call them

“dumb birds” for getting on

roads to become roadkill,

however, pukeko are actually

extremely clever and complex

birds.

Don’t be fooled by the pukeko

running around clumsily along

the road as they can swim, run

and fly extremely well.

Pukeko are commonly seen

on regularly mown roadsides

as they love the fresh new grass

shoots and growth there.

That, paired with their need

to eat grit off the road, (this aids

them in their digestion of tough

to digest foods like grass) puts

them at high risk of being run

down by motorists.

Pukeko live in small community

groups and are very protective

of their territory, hence why

you can hear their loud shrieking

when they defend their patch.

Females in the group will lay

as many as 19 eggs in one shared

nest, which is incubated by the

males. When chicks hatch, the

entire group, whether they are

breeding and non breeding

birds, will feed the chicks for

about three months. Now that’s

clever.

How can we help these birds

thrive? Keep dogs on the lead

when walking near waterways as

to not disturb them while they

are nesting, feeding or resting.

Drive carefully along roads

where you see pukeko regularly

and slow down.

PROTECTIVE: Pukeko are misinterpreted as being “dumb birds,”

however, they are quite complex and clever.

Life as a Casketeer

What the Business of death Can Teach the Living

by Francis and Kaiora Tipene

Francis and Kaiora Tipene aren’t your typical funeral directors.

With their famous humour and big-hearted personalities, the TVNZ

and Netflix reality TV stars are changing the way we think about

death and grief. Life as a Casketeer reveals how Francis and

Kaiora grew up in families that had few possessions but were rich

with love and tikanga, and how they came to work in their often

misunderstood profession. It’s also a book about the Maori world

view and traditional funeral customs. The Tipenes make death feel

less mysterious and life feel more precious. But most of all, Life as a

Casketeer is a love story - for whanau, for culture and for each other.

It is full of joy and sorrow, tears and laughter.

Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen

Interviews and encounters by Jeff Burger

Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half

century, has had a stranger-than-fiction, roller-coaster ride of a life. Now,

for the first time, he tells his story in his own words, via more than 50

interviews conducted worldwide between 1966 and 2012. In this book—

which includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of

rarely seen photos—the artist talks about “Bird on the Wire,” “Hallelujah,”

and his other classic songs. He discusses his famous romances, his

years in a Zen monastery, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil

Spector, his battle with depression, and much more. You’ll find interviews

that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also

material that has not previously been printed in English. Many not been

available until now in any format, including many reminiscences that

contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology.

The Sisters of Auschwitz

by roxane van Iperen

During the Second World War two Jewish sisters - Janny and Lien

Brilleslijper - run one of the largest hideaways in The Netherlands:

The High Nest, a villa in The Gooi area. While the last remaining

Jews are being hunted in The Netherlands, the lives of dozens of

hideaways kept going for better or for worse, right under the noses of

their National Socialist neighbours. Eventually, the nest is exposed and

the Brilleslijper family put on one of the last transports to Auschwitz,

along with the (Anne) Frank family. Roxane’s novelistic eye combined

with her rigorous research result in a hugely compelling portrayal of

courage, treason and human resilience.

War Doctor

Surgery on the Front Line by david Nott

For more than 25 years, surgeon David Nott has volunteered in some

of the world’s most dangerous conflict zones. From Sarajevo under

siege in 1993 to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo,

he has carried out lifesaving operations in the most challenging

conditions, and with none of the resources of a major metropolitan

hospital. He is now widely acknowledged as the most experienced

trauma surgeon in the world.

War Doctor is his extraordinary story, encompassing his surgeries in

nearly every major conflict zone since the end of the Cold War, as well

as his struggles to return to a “normal” life after each trip. War Doctor is

a blend of medical memoir, personal journey, and nonfiction thriller that

provides unforgettable, at times raw, insight into the human toll of war.

NZ Surf

Captured by a Surf Lens tells a unique story of the

New Zealand surfing scene.

by Warren Hawke

The book is broken into chapters, focusing on; Warren’s personal

history ,different geographical areas including: Banks Peninsula,

Marlborough, West Coast, Otago, the North Island Catlins and

Southland, each chapter features beautiful lineup photos and shots of

the local shredders.

There’s a section on hidden gems (secret spots), a retro section

highlighting the resurgence of longboards and retro surf craft. Finally

there’s a tribute chapter to Allan Byrne - Quite possibly the best and

most famous surfer to come from New Zealand.

Godley Gifts presented

to Lyttelton community

MP Ruth

Dyson writes

about the

presentation

of a limited

edition book

set named

Godley

Gifts to the

Lyttelton

community

IT WAS A real privilege to be

involved in a very special event

in Lyttelton where a presentation

of an important part of the

history of Canterbury was made.

The John Robert Godley

Memorial Trust gifted number

50 of the limited edition of 100

Godley Gifts to the Lyttelton

community.

The 50th edition was chosen

in recognition of the 1850 arrival

in Lyttelton.

Godley Gifts is a trilogy.

Volume one is written by wellknown

local man, David

McPhail and introduces four

people, James Edward Fitzgerald,

John Robert Godley,

Charlotte Wynne (married to

Godley) and their four-year-old

son Arthur.

Volume two is an exact replica

copy of Seadrift, the children’s

story book that FItzgerald wrote

The Sea2Sky Challenge,

an event where there is

something for everyone

The Brad Richards Building Sea2Sky

Challenge offers an end of summer test for

the serious athlete as well as those that

are just wanting to give it a try. Amongst

all the entrants four competitive cousins

are counting down to the upcoming event,

starting at Scarborough Beach on Sunday,

29 March.

Tom Newsom (12), Felicity Newsom (10),

Willow Richards (7) and Max Richards (5)

have started training for the popular local

race, which promises “something for

everyone”. Regular competitors Tom and

Felicity will be competing in the Junior

Triathlon category. Willow and challenge

newcomer Max, are racing in the kids

aquathon.

The fifth edition of the challenge has

partnered with local company, Brad

Richards Building, as this year’s principal

race sponsor. Director Amanda Richards,

who is also Willow and Max’s mother,

co-trainer and support crew, said the

cousins are “very excited” to all be in the

same race together.

and illustrated in Lyttelton

with 32 full page drawings, for

Arthur.

And volume three is Fitzgerald’s

collection of 34 watercolours,

a “photo” album of the

time, recalling the ship’s voyage

from England to New Zealand,

and significant places on his

arrival.

Trustee, Haydn Rawstron,

gave a stunning outline of the

history of Godley and Fitzgerald

surrounded by reproductions

of all 66 watercolours, on public

display for the first time ever.

Architectural historian Jenny

May and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner expanded this story into

the Lyttelton and Canterbury

history. What an afternoon of

learning!

The Lyttelton Museum is in

the process of being restored

following the earthquakes and

the Godley Gifts will be stored at

the Lyttelton Library until the

Museum is rebuilt on the site

gifted by the city council, next to

the library.

There are plans for the works

to be available for viewing on

request at the library and I

certainly hope that lots of people

are able to take the opportunity

to see them and learn more

about this slice of our history.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be supporting

Sea2Sky. It’s an amazing local event and

one we can all enjoy and get the kids

involved in,” Richards said.

Traditionally a triathlon/duathlon challenge,

event director John Newsom has added a

scenic 17km run category for 2020 taking

in the Captain Thomas track, the Summit

Road and Godley Head track. “I’ve been

lucky enough to train and race all around

the world. This course, with the trails, hills

and stunning views is still my favourite run

anywhere,” Newsom said.

The full Sea2Sky Challenge offers individual

and team options for both triathlon and

duathlon (run/bike/run). For students, and

those not yet up for the full challenge, there

is the “Try a Tri/Du” and junior races. Finally,

the Kids Aquathon is a great introduction to

the sport for 5-9 year old children.

Making a bid for freedom

FOR THOSE of you who read

last week’s column about Vittoria’s

love of song and dance, I’ve got a

classic addendum to that.

We took a family outing on

Saturday to the multi-cultural festival

in Linwood which featured a

heap of music and dance performances.

Including a group which

included an audience participation

section in their repertoire.

Of course Vittoria wanted to

join in and by chance she was

holding her mother’s hand at the

time. So I got to ‘guard the pram’

and enjoy watching them dance

along to a slow number.

Vittoria aced it. She was in

time, followed the moves correctly

and had a giant smile the whole

time. She was everything I’m not

on a dance floor.

Another hobby she’s been

developing since she started

pre-school is running. Lately

this now includes starting little

races against her parents around

the house, complete with “riddy,

stiddy, doh”. The last part is usually

yelled back at us when she’s

halfway to the finish line.

I mention this as she used her

surprising turn of speed to –

literally – keep me on my toes

when we took her to Sparks later

Saturday night.

Mere minutes after setting up our

picnic blanket, young road runner

set off in the direction of the stage. I

managed to keep close behind

and she was quickly thwarted by a

busy thoroughfare of people a few

metres from our camp.

The sun was starting to set in

earnest and she let us get some

warm clothes on her. Using playing

with her beanie as a distraction,

she made her way to the edge

of our little camp. As soon as she

saw the coast was clear she took

off, away from the stage this time.

I managed to catch up to her at

a mob of what seemed like 14 to

16-year-olds she seemed keen to

be part of. Fortunately we both

Stunning and

VITTORIA

stuck out like sore thumbs in that

group, so it was reasonably easy

to repatriate her back to camp.

Soon after returning she made

another try for the stage again,

but ended up tripping over some

guy’s leg. Thank you lying down

man, you were my only hope.

Clearly, another distraction was

required before her next venture

and one quickly appeared in the

form of a handful of St John stickers.

After 15 minutes of sticking

and unsticking them, she had me

convinced she wouldn’t be taking

off again. But, just as the masterpiece

that is the theme tune to

Jurrasic Park started up, she made

her final bid for freedom.

Heading away from the stage

again, she took off at top speed,

luckily it was near 9pm and

Vittoria’s vim finally reached its

limit. She barely fought it when I

finally caught up to her and was

soon snuggled up in my arms as

the fireworks began.

From tree removals to hedge

trimming - no job too big or small

WITH autumn/winter approaching,

now is the time to consider maintenance

of those out of control trees, bushes and

shrubs. Because it’s important that this

type of maintenance is done safely and

efficiently, it is strongly recommended

such jobs be done by a professional

arborist. Special Branch Tree Care NZ

based in Lyttelton is expert in all areas of

tree maintenance and removal.

Owned and operated by David Craig,

David has over 25 years’ experience as

an arborist and is a specialist when it

comes to hillside work and rigging safety

equipment.

If you have concerns about a certain

tree on your property, give David a call.

He can carry out a thorough Tree Report

outlining any health and safety issues such

as deadwood, cracks, decay, weak branch

unions, broken limbs, root problems, or

simply just general poor tree architecture,

and from here recommend what action

should be taken.

But David doesn’t just do tree removals

at dizzying heights. He is a specialist in all

areas of landscape maintenance including

Formative Pruning - pruning of young

trees to improve structure, health and

form, Thinning - often recommended

by David as the best course of action for

mature trees in an urban environment

followed by selective pruning to expose

branch structure and allow more light

through the canopy, Crown Reductions -

reductions in height and crown diameter,

and Hedge Trimming.

Clean up is easy. David offers site waste

removal, wood chipping and firewood

chopping services.

One-pot wonders to keep the summer vibe going

• By Ian Knott

With the recent resurgence

of warmer temperatures

there’s no need to

prematurely put the

outdoor furniture away just

yet. Keep that summer vibe

going with these crowdpleasing

one-pot wonders

Slow-cooker pulled pork

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 onions, halved and sliced

1 Tbsp smoked paprika

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp garlic salt

2 tsp sea salt flakes

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

3 Tbsp red wine vinegar

2 Tbsp tomato purée

2 Tbsp soft light brown sugar

1.5kg boneless pork shoulder,

skin and excess fat removed

To serve

Soft white rolls

Coleslaw

Sliced red onions

Sliced gherkins

Directions

Heat the slow cooker to high.

Put the onions in the bottom of

the slow cooker.

Mix together the spices, salts,

mustard, vinegar, tomato purée

and sugar. Rub all over the pork

then sit on top of the onions.

Cook for 8 hours. Remove the

pork and shred into chunks. Mix

in 4-5 Tbsp of cooking liquid

from the slow cooker.

Serve in buns with coleslaw,

sliced red onions and gherkins, if

you like.

Halloumi and vegetable

tray-bake

Ingredients

4 courgettes, cut into small

chunks

1 red onion, cut into slim wedges

3 large garlic cloves, skins left on

3 Tbsp olive oil

300g cherry tomatoes

250g halloumi, sliced

¼ tsp cumin seeds

Dried chilli flakes a few pinches

(optional)

To serve

Flatbreads

Hummus

Hot sauce (optional)

CROWD-PLEASERS: (Left) Slow-cooker pulled pork, (above)

halloumi and vegetable tray-bake

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C/180

(fan-forced). Toss the courgettes,

onion and garlic with the olive

oil and tip into a large, shallow

baking dish. Season well and

roast for 10min.

Stir in the cherry tomatoes

and sit the halloumi slices on

top. Sprinkle over the cumin

seeds and chilli flakes, if using.

Cook for another 15min until the

tomatoes start to burst and release

juice, and the halloumi is turning

golden.

Squeeze the garlic cloves out

of their skins and mash into the

oil and juices in the baking dish,

stirring it in. Spoon everything

onto plates and serve with soft

flatbreads and hummus or hot

sauce, if you like.

Tackle those gnarly tracks in a Pajero Sport

SUCH IS the demand for sport

utility vehicles, motor vehicle

manufacturers have recognised

the need for those which have

genuine off-road capability.

Sure, there are many SUVs

which are capable off-the-seal,

but there are some that are better

than most, those that are based

on ute platforms, ie: ladder

chassis and live rear axle.

The benefit of that type of

construction is not just high

ground clearance, but they also

have the ability to put power to

ground through low ratio transfer

cases and lengthy rear axle

articulation.

There are several ute-based

SUVs in the Kiwi market, and

in terms of sales, Ford’s Everest,

Toyota’s Fortuner, Holden’s

Trailblazer and Mitsubishi’s

Pajero Sport are the shakers and

movers.

This evaluation focuses on

the latter, and the Triton-based

seven-seat SUV has just had a bit

a revamp, there are a host of new

features and an interior rejig so

that comfort levels are enhanced.

In terms of specifics, the

exterior has had some cosmetic

changes up front, they provide a

solid, more powerful look. Inside

there are new display graphics,

greater storage facility, and soft

touch padding has been added to

the extremities.

One of the most notable new

features is the powered tailgate

which can be operated by waving

a foot under each side of the rear

bumper – this feature was great

for loading the hefty cricket gear

bag I use for coaching my year 7

Sydenham team.

Interestingly, the Pajero Sport

is available now in only one

specification, and that is high

grade VRX. It is listed now at just

$58,990, which makes it a most

appealing purchase; not only do

you get a lot of vehicle for that

price, it is finished with all the

goodies that characterise highgrade

Mitsubishi product.

It is swimming in features way

too numerous to mention, but

to list just a few, there are heated

seats (full leather and electrically

adjustable), paddle shifters and

a clever new electronic remote

control device which will link to

an owner’s cellphone. It enables

automatic opening of the tailgate

when approaching the vehicle.

Mechanically, little has changed

with the Pajero Sport other than

a few electronic tweaks to the

driveline and four-wheel-drive

system. The Super-Select 4WD-II

system has long proven itself in

Triton, and I consider it one of the

MITSUBISHI PAJERO SPORT: Serious four-wheel-drive SUV.

best in this type of vehicle.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.4-litre,

four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel

engine rated by Mitsubishi at

135kW and 437Nm. It is a real

powerhouse and drives through

the sophistication of an eightspeed

automatic gearbox. The

engine/gearbox combination is

rather special, especially so with

the number of ratios, there is

almost seamless gearing offering

the best structures for both

off-road challenges and smooth

momentum for the everyday

commute.

Of course, the Pajero Sport also

gets a seriously low ratio transfer

system for when those fourwheel-drive

tracks beckon.

The test car was showing only

333km when I picked it up from

the dealership; that being the

case, I was reluctant to take it

off-road for fear of damage and/

or getting it too dirty. However, as

good fortune had it, I offered to

take my son to a rural property

in Lansdowne Valley to pick up

some PlayStation games he had

purchased off Trade Me.

The house was located up

a private driveway which

meandered for several kilometers

on a steep hill. The accessway was

mostly sealed bar for some deep

ruts and broken surfaces. The

Pajero Sport easily conquered the

challenge in two wheel-drive, but

what was most impressive was the

way the suspension kept wheel

contact to ground, as well as

offering high interior comfort.

Steering feel was constantly

communicative, and turn in

direct through huge Toyo tyres

(265/60 x 18in). On the steep

descent it was also good to know

that the brakes were up to task.

That journey was a good test for

the Pajero Sport, and even though

the engine was still quite tight,

it made easy work of the steep

incline.

• Price – Mitsubishi Pajero

Sport, $58,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4825mm; width, 1815mm;

height, 1835mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

2422cc, 135kW,

437Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

• Fuel usage – 8l/100km

In terms of performance,

against the clock the Pajero

Sport will accelerate to 100km/h

from a standstill in 10.5sec, and

is comfortable with a 6.5sec

highway overtake (80km/h to

120km/h).

On the subject of figures, the

Pajero Sport is also listed with a

3100kg tow rating and 218mm

ground clearance.

At highway speed it cruises

comfortably with little sound

intrusion, there is just a subdued

diesel throb under load, but

that is no louder than any of its

competition.

There’s been a lot of fresh

product landing from Mitsubishi

in recent months, Triton, ASX

and Outlander have all had a

refresh, along with Pajero Sport.

There’s also genuine enthusiasm

at the local dealership, and with

a comprehensive and dynamic

product range on the showroom

floor, it’s going to be a heady time

for those under the Mitsubishi

umbrella in this country.
