Fears over

future of

Airbnb

• By Bea Gooding

CHRISTCHURCH Airbnb

owners are concerned about

the future of home-share

accommodation as the city

council mulls changes to its rules

for short-term accommodation.

Proposed changes to the City

Plan would allow whole unit listings

in some areas but not others, and

would not allow listings in multiunit

dwellings or on rear sections.

Another option on the table

enables listings up to a specified

number of days, such as 60, 90 or

120 days per year.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths confirmed a council

committee would ultimately decide

what to do with the proposals

next month.

But Christchurch Holiday Homes

director Sue Harrison, who manages

homes in Sumner and Akaroa,

said there were fears a change

would “put big hotel profits ahead

of what’s best for the city.”

“For many of us, these rules

would mean putting away our

welcome mats for good.

“We can’t pretend it hasn’t

been hurtful at times when our

intentions have been wilfully

misrepresented. We’re members

of this community and we care

very deeply about Christchurch,”

Harrison said. • Turn to page 3

Airbnb owners concerned over rule changes

• From page 1

In residential zones, singleroom

listings with the owner present

were permitted as “bed and

breakfasts” under the District

Plan rules, allowing up to six

guests to stay a maximum of 90

days.

In residential zones outside of

the central city, unhosted accommodation

or whole unit listings

required a resource consent as a

discretionary activity.

Policies to restrict non-residential

activities in residential zones

made consent more difficult to

obtain.

Said Harrison: “We don’t

support discriminating between

hosted and unhosted short-term

rentals. Whether a host is present

or not doesn’t form a sound basis

for regulation as there’s many

variables involved to police this.”

Airbnb owners did not support

the proposals due to the growing

need for self-catering homes for

groups and families that many

motels, hotels and hostels did not

cater for.

They have outlined their

concerns to community boards

across the city.

They favoured the option

which removed restrictions on

whole unit listings and treated

home-share accommodation as a

residential activity.

hosts earned about $50

million between August 2018 and

August 2019.

It is estimated about 250,000

guests were hosted last year.

Griffiths said some regulations

could be approached from a

nationwide perspective.

“A nationwide code of practice

would be possible for short-term

accommodation, but would

require agreement of all listing

platform providers, council and

other regulatory agencies,” he

said.

“However, a nationwide code

of practice could not be the only

regulatory mechanism in spite

of this being a preferred option.

City council has responsibilities

under the Building Act, Resource

Management Act and other

legislation that the code may not

address.’’

The Government could also

issue objectives and policies to

ensure a consistent approach to

managing the issue, such as the

use of land and its effects that all

councils must enforce.

The city council will present a

report to the Urban Development

and Transport Committee

outlining recommendations on

a preferred option including

whether or not to notify changes

to the District Plan next month.

Seafarers’ welfare ‘grossly underfunded’

• By Stu Oldham

THE MISSION for Seafarers in

Lyttelton could fold unless the

Government paves the way for

consistent funding as the sector

struggles through the global

pandemic.

This emerged as the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

prepares to discuss a grant to the

mission at its next meeting.

The Ministry of Transport has

given the national mission a sixmonth,

$295,000 lifeline to help

seafarers stuck in 28-day on-ship

quarantine.

However, there are fears as to

what will happen if the funding

is not continued and the sector

cannot hire the professional staff

it needs.

Many groups rely on funding

from overseas charities and local

churches. All are struggling

to raise their own funds as the

recession bites.

Volunteers are also likely to

be thin on the ground – many

are in their 70s and many are

unlikely to return to work postpandemic.

Mission for Seafarers Lyttelton

chaplain John McLister said

his international funder would

honour the remaining two years

of his three-year contract.

After that, “it’ll be over.”

Without new funding, there

was a strong chance the seafarer

welfare sector would struggle to

survive as it is into the new year,

he confirmed.

If this happened, New Zealand

would fail to meet its obligations

under the international Maritime

Labour Convention, he said.

The convention says technically

competent people should

be employed full-time to operate

seafarers’ welfare facilities and

services.

Such services could cost in

the region of $1 million nationally,

or about $150,000 per port,

based on pre-Covid-19 estimates

put to the Government before

the response, McLister said.

A professional service at Lyttelton

would need two full time

staff, he said.

McLister is chairman of the

Seafarer Welfare Board, which

wants the cost paid by a levy on

shipping, as allowed for under

the convention.

It suggests $50 for trading

vessels and $100 for cruise ships

levied at their first port of call. The

convention allows voluntary levies

but previous attempts to raise

them failed, McLister said.

The sector relied on charitable

giving, port company assistance

and grants from community

boards and councils – which

often owned the ports where the

services are based.

“But no, when it comes down

to it, I don’t think we should

have to go cap in hand to little

old ladies and be out there cooking

barbecues to raise money

when there are companies making

millions of dollars from the

people we are here to help.”

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Tyrone Fields said

the board and the wider community

supported the mission’s work

– “it is part of who we are in a port

town” – but that he was actively

advocating for the shipping sector

to pay its way.

A levy would be fair and would

A HUMAN Rights at Sea

report released in March

says found New Zealand has

a “broken system of gross

underfunding” for seafarer

welfare.

The United Kingdom-based

charity says the Government

has failed to safeguard seafarer

welfare under the Maritime

Labour Convention, in spite of

raising considerable funds from

maritime levies.

It says the “responsibility of

the state has ostensibly been

outsourced to the maritime

charitable sector.”

It recommends the Government

immediately review how

seafarer welfare is funded, and

introduce a levy system or ringfence

‘Aunties’ helping vulnerable families

A myriad of groups help

keep our community

moving. Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks to The

Christchurch Aunties

chairwoman Heather

Milne about the

organisation’s work

What is The Christchurch

Aunties?

We’re a network of 4000

people who provide practical

support and donations for

women and children in

Christchurch, Selwyn District,

and Waimakariri District, who

have experienced family violence

and vulnerability. We work with

staff at about 11 organisations

(such as women’s refuges), who

tell us what they need for their

clients, then we get it to them by

mobilising our network.

We regularly provide toiletries,

security items and emergency

trips funding. When women

are setting up new homes after

relocating, we provide new or

quality second-hand furniture

and bedding. Sourcing and

donating baby gear is another

area that we excel at.

In addition to those regular

requests, we sometimes receive

client-specific donation requests

such as gadgets and weighted

blankets for children with

behavioural or communication

issues, quality sports gear,

birthday cakes, and vouchers for

local attractions.

What does it mean to be an

“auntie?”

Anyone, anywhere can be an

“auntie.’’ We have Christchurch

Aunties who regularly donate

toiletries and new bedding.

Others have set up regular

payments into our account. We

have a team of volunteers who

get hands-on and help us move

things, do administrative tasks,

mend furniture, test electrical

gear, and tidy our storage.

There are also hundreds of

Christchurch aunties who share

information about us and get

us in touch with other donors.

All of this support is part of the

giant jigsaw that makes it so

successful.

Why is an organisation like

The Christchurch Aunties

important for the community?

The immediate importance

of The Christchurch Aunties

is that we relieve the mental

load for women and children

experiencing family violence and

vulnerability, and we also relieve

the mental load of the staff

who are caring for them. Our

donations go towards keeping

SLOAN

people warm, safe, and feeling

valued.

What are the major issues

currently impacting those who

you serve, and why?

The issue that we’ve seen

recently impacting families is

Covid-19 and the lockdown. This

situation became like a pressure

cooker of social isolation and

financial stress for many.

Children were home from

school and saw the violence

happening. Solo parents

struggled to get supplies as they

couldn’t leave their children at

home, but also couldn’t take

them to the supermarket.

In the days before level 4,

we frantically gave out all our

supplies of toiletries, activities,

and fuel/supermarket vouchers

to organisations – not knowing

when we’d be able to supply

them again.

Luckily we were granted

essential status, but the

increased demand for basic

donations of toiletries, security

gear, and vouchers have

continued.

Canterbury has functioned

with a post-traumatic stress

disorder faultline running under

us since 2010. So although the

lockdown was the catalyst for

recent spikes in family violence,

there has been an increase for

some time.

Moving forward, how can

organisations and society better

support those experiencing

these hardships and the

reduction of harm within

homes? And why?

As a society, we can’t make

any real impact until we stop

and listen. I urge people to get

educated on family violence

and poverty in New Zealand.

Be open-minded and learn

about your unconscious bias.

Listen to those who speak from

experience – they know more

than you do on this subject.

It’s okay to change the way you

think about things.

Work to start soon on reserve

• By Matt Slaughter

THE $1.19 million project

to transform the former

Redcliffs School site into a new

recreational reserve is due to

start this month.

It is expected this will be completed

between the end of this

year and early next year.

The reserve will be called Te

Papa Kura Redcliffs Park.

Funding for

it has come

from the sale

of the former

Redcliffs Park to

the Ministry of

Andrew

Rutledge

Education.

It will include

two junior

sports fields, the existing

playground facilities, paths and

space for future public gatherings.

Said city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge: “The

playground at Te Papa Kura

Redcliffs Park has been open for

some time.

“Construction of the fields

and perimeter pathways is

about to begin. Start work

notices were released to the

public recently and the work is

expected to be completed by the

end of the year or early next year

with the fields ready for use next

winter after a grow-in period,”

he said.

DEVELOPMENT: The project to transform the old Redcliffs School site into a

recreational reserve will start this month and is set to be completed by December.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

There will be heavy machinery

operating during the day to

level and shape the surface for

the new sports fields.

Future phases of the project

will include the installation of a

toilet block, additional furniture

and other amenities.

The old Redcliffs School site

on Main Rd was ruled unsafe

for pupils to return to after the

2011 earthquake.

In June, the school shifted

to its brand new campus on

Beachville Rd after sharing a site

with van Asch Deaf Education

Centre for nine years after the

earthquake.

THERE ARE early indications

domestic tourism will make up

for some of the international

visitors no longer expected at

Akaroa Museum.

Museum director Lynda

Wallace told the museum

advisory committee 29,300 people

visited the museum in the year to

June 30. More than 40,000 visited

the year before.

The eight-week Covid-19 lockdown

had an impact but the

pandemic’s effect on international

tourism will be more enduring.

The figures were buoyed by

cruise ship passengers, which

made up 27 per cent of the total.

This was a “high percentage not

likely to be seen again in the near

future.”

Last year, fewer than 12,000

people, or 40 per cent of all visitors,

were domestic tourists.

Wallace told the committee

there were indications there will

be more domestic visitors “that

may go quite some way towards

filling the gap.”

Visitor statistics for July were

positive. The school holidays were

50 per cent busier than last year,

she told the committee.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Macy’s BIG day at Massey Vet School

- PART ONE

I’m sure many of you have either met or read about

the newest member of the McMaster- Heap family

- Miss Macy, our scrumptious, beautiful glossy black

18 week old Labrador puppy. Just like half of CHCH,

we decided to get a puppy in lockdown (or rather

gentled pressured from our 3 sons who had all

converged on us begging for one). Lola is nearly 11

years old, so I felt it a

good age for her to

enjoy a playmate and

teach her prodigy “the

ways of the vet clinic”.

Macy has a very

sound pedigree,

with her dad a UK

champion and her

mum, coincidentally

called Lola, bred in

Christchurch. The

breeder made sure

the dam and sire

were hip and elbow

scored and their

results were excellent

(as were generations

further back). As a

conscientious breeder,

apart from selection

on temperament, you can’t do much more. When we

visited the litter they all seemed perfect!

Unfortunately for Macy (and me), she has ended

up with Elbow Dysplasia, affecting both forelegs

(Funny that I can’t remember when I last diagnosed a

puppy with this disease). Apparently it is reasonably

common in large breed puppies especially Labrador

retrievers, German Shepherds and Bernese Mountain

dogs. Most are not diagnosed as young as Macy - the

“upside” to having parents who are Veterinarians,

along with free toys, tasty foods and delicious treats

always on tap!!

At about 12 weeks of age I noticed a subtle shifting

foreleg lameness, worse on getting up from rest

and after boisterous short plays with Lola. She

was normal with leash walks but pulled away

when I went to palpate her elbows. The lameness

progressively became more pronounced so I asked

Richard Lucy to radiograph all her limbs. I prayed

she just had panosteitis - pain along the long bones

associated with rapid

growth, seen in fast

growing puppies.

The day of the surgery

at Massey University

Veterinary School

Macy and her big sister

Lola holidaying in

Northland

Macy’s X-rays ruled out

panosteitis but there

was some question mark

over joint pathology.

Radiography can’t detect

subtle changes in the

cartilage matrix or fissures

in the coronoid process

of the ulna. Macy then

underwent a CT scan

through Pacific Radiology

at Lincoln University

to get a clearer insight

into her joint health and

determine her cause of

lameness. The CT scan

was read by a Registered

Veterinary radiologist who

diagnosed bilateral elbow

dysplasia.

The elbow is a very complex joint, comprised of

3 bones that have to synergistically sit and move

together perfectly. There are 3 parts that make up

elbow dysplasia and Macy has 2 of them - OCD

of the medial humeral condyle and FCP (medial

fragmented coronoid process of the ulna). Not

great news for a 16 week old puppy. I did some fast

research on Elbow Dysplasia, watching webinars and

sourcing differing opinions from surgeons worldwide

on the best way to tackle this disease to help slow

the progression and stop the pain for Macy. I talked

to our surgeon, Helen Milner, and Andrew Worth (a

classmate of mine 30 years ago at Vet School), an

orthopaedic surgeon at Massey University.

Open 7 days

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

The best outcome for Macy was for her to undergo

arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) on both elbows at

Massey University Veterinary Hospital, to remove

the coronoid process if it was seen to be fractured

or fissured and check her cartilage and remove

any OCD lesion (folding and tearing of the articular

cartilage due to collapse of the subchondral bone).

Andrew said he would squeeze Macy in on Monday

13th July (my birthday!!! So had to be great luck) so

Steve and I, with Macy and Lola in tow, made a road

trip to Palmerston North ASAP. The things you do for

your pets. Helen could also have operated on Macy’s

elbows via arthrotomy ( which is incising her elbow

joints to remove cartilage and bone fragments). We

decided for a puppy so young, keyhole surgery was

going to be minimally invasive therefore her recovery

time faster and with magnification into the elbow

joint, you can appreciate better the health of the

cartilage and degree of damage.

Macy undergoing CT

Macy was a “superstar” on surgery day. She was

operated on at 3pm and home with us at 6.30pm.

She has really never looked back and was walking

better almost immediately. Andrew thought

her pain was mainly due to the bilateral OCD

lesions (loose flaps of cartilage that he incised and

smoothed out, preparing the way for fibrocartilage

to be laid down).

Recovering

in the Bay of

Islands

The hardest part now is keeping her out of mischief.

She just wants to run like a rabbit and for 1 month

post operatively she is limited to 5-10 minutes on a

leash daily and then crated or house rested. She’s

nearly done her month confinement and will be able

to enjoy longer walks, although no off-leash running

for a while. My job now is to keep her lean, feed her

joint supplements including Omega oils and 4 cyte,

restrict running, jumping down and vigorous play

and somewhere in there start training her to be as

well behaved as Lola.

So far so good. I’ll keep you posted on her recovery.

IMPROVEMENTS: A concept drawing of how the new Woolston Village

will look when work is finished.

Big construction

projects going ahead

KIA ORA, I’d like to use

this opportunity to give

you a heads-up about

some really big projects

happening in our area.

THere’s a lot going on in

Woolston and Linwood

which will impact upon

residents and those who

are passing through from

the bays and Lyttelton.

The first is a real good

news story.

Te Pou Toetoe – the

Linwood Pool is now

under construction, and

the holes are being dug for

the actual pools. If you’ve

been rocked by the ground

shaking over the past

three or four weeks, then

it may have been the huge

compactors working on

the site.

The digging is nearly

complete, so thanks for

your patience.

Inside there will be

a 25m pool, a learners’

pool, a family spa, a wet

platform with all sorts of

water toys and a ‘manu’ – a

deep bombing pool – as

well as meeting spaces and

a kitchen for family and

community use.

The city council wants

to hear from you if you

are keen to run classes

or programmes in this

new facility. Have your

say https://ccc.govt.nz/thecouncil/consultations-andsubmissions/haveyoursay/

show/317

Secondly, there are nine

months of road works

ahead for Woolston

Village, so there are fences

and traffic cones aplenty.

From the board

Alexandra Davids, chair

Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board

COMPLEX: KiwiRail is building a new bridge over

the Heathcote River, trains can still travel along

the line during construction.

This work is necessary

to replace the sewer line

running along Ferry Rd.

Improvements to

the Woolston Village

streetscape are happening

at the same time, so

it will be worth the

inconvenience. Please be

patient with the traffic and

you can still get through

the village. The shops are

still open and access to

alternative parking is well

sign-posted.

Phone the city council

on 941 8999, 0800 800 169

or email woolstonvillage@

ccc.govt.nz for more

information.

Finally, you will see a lot

of action near Brougham St

where KiwiRail is replacing

a rail bridge. The current

one was built in 1923, so it

is past its use by date.

The community board

advocated for access

to remain open for

pedestrians and cyclists,

but Clarendon and

Richardson Tces will both

be closed for part of the

process.

Building a whole new

bridge while still using it

is quite a task. KiwiRail

will build sections of the

bridge on site, alongside

Brougham St, and use

a huge tracked crane to

lift the sections onto the

bridge when they are

completed. It’s a massive

job.

Phone KiwiRail

stakeholder inquiries 0800

801 070 ext 4302.

Thank you everyone for

your continued interest.

We are here to advocate,

support and help inform

you of matters relating to

you and your community.

Still no decision on future of ‘needless eyesore’

• By Stu Oldham

OFFICIALS ARE looking at

ways to improve a now rockstrewn

beach some neighbouring

residents say is blighted by a

needless eyesore.

The city council this week confirmed

it was investigating options

for improving the amenity

value of Clifton Beach but that

no decision has been made.

City staff are preparing a

proposal for Environment

Canterbury after officials from

both councils met to discuss the

future of the beach last week.

The proposal will include an

assessment of environmental

impacts, costs and time frames,

in response to that meeting, a

spokesperson confirmed.

The move is the latest since the

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

in August urged the council

to clean up what it said was

left after work on the rock

revetment protecting Main Rd

and supporting the section of the

Coastal Pathway.

The association says rock previously

buried up to 4m underground

was insufficiently buried

when the excavated material was

returned to the beach.

Tide and weather have since

exposed rocks along a stretch of

beach that has been sandy for

as long as many residents can

EXPOSED: Redcliffs Residents’ Association Secretary Pat McIntosh says the wait to

remediate Clifton Beach was ‘frustrating.’

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

remember, it says.

Association secretary Dr Pat

McIntosh said the wait for a

plan to remediate the beach was

“frustrating.”

“They do not appear to have a

plan, and I’m afraid we may have

another summer like this.”

The association was also frustrated

by the council’s responses.

Initially, council staff said

the rocks are naturally occurring

and would eventually be

consumed by the sandy beach,

she said.

In November, the council acknowledged

it was an unforeseen

result of the work but could not

be tackled during penguin nesting

season, she said.

The prospect of further work

seemed to slow when the council

said it needed archeological and

cultural assessments before it

could start, she said.

The association understood

remediation, whether that meant

scraping or sifting out the rocks

to a reasonable depth, might

prove costly, she said.

“But it was their mistake and

is their responsibility to put

right.”

It was the association’s position

the council had some work to do

before it met the conditions of

its consents, and the beach was

restored, she said.

Bay Harbour News sought an

interview with the council. In a

written response, a spokesperson

said it had no non-compliance

reports from any of the agencies

that issued its resource consents

for the project.

Asked what advice it had as to

the potential impact of rocks on

the beach, the spokesperson said

the “naturally occurring rocks”

were an unforeseen consequence

of construction.

The spokesperson later confirmed

that meant the council

had no advice at the time of the

works, or after.

Asked about the estimated

cost of removing the previously

subsurface rocks, by option

considered since the issue was

identified, the spokesperson said

“no decision has been made yet

as to what the preferred option

may be.”

That was also the response

when asked whether the

remediation time frame has been

affected by the need for cultural

and archeological assessments.

A need to focus on a clean, green economy

Dave Bryce of

the Redcliffs/

Te Rae Kura

Eco Village

group says it

is focusing on

the economy

during August.

AN INCREASING number

of people are now on reduced

incomes.

Businesses need reassessing

to be relevant in the post-Covid

situation and in a reduced CO2

emissions world. Tourism may

not return to anything like

before. Overseas travel, business

meetings and conferences will all

reduce or be done virtually.

Globally, we currently have

unsustainable levels of goods

creation and consumption and

associated depletion of resources

and destruction of natural

habitats.

This can all change by refocusing

on a future “clean, green and

sustainable economy.”

Such an economy would

ensure that manufactured goods

would last a long time and then

be able to be returned for repair

or repurposing or recycling.

This will start to happen now

with “product stewardship”, a

new form of legal regulation intended

to reduce waste and hazards

and apply user-pays. It puts

the responsibility for a product’s

life-cycle and waste management

on manufacturers, importers,

retailers and users, rather than

on communities, councils, neighbourhoods

and nature.

Government has declared

six priority products for stewardship

– plastic packaging,

tyres, electrical and electronic

products, agrichemicals and

their containers, refrigerants and

farm plastics.

Stewardship also has the

potential to create lots of new

SHOP LOCAL: By visiting your local farmers’ market will

help reduce transport costs and lower emissions.

jobs, although will probably

increase the cost of these

products.

You could play your own part

by avoiding buying things you

don’t really need – trying to buy

only things which are durable,

repairable, non-plastic, toxin

free, recycled or recyclable and

without excessive packaging, and

checking if things can be fixed or

recycled, before “binning” them

and replacing them.

Buying products locally made

and shopping locally, will also

help to reduce the transport

costs and emissions embodied

in the economy. This includes

using local trades, products and

services, and visiting your local

farmers’ market.

If you are looking for local

goods and services, check out

the “Local Directory” on our

website www.redcliffs.org.nz. If

you have a local business including

home-occupations, be sure

to get listed there.

Our Kiwi eco pledges for

this year, on the economy are:

centre and farmers market at

least fortnightly, and work from

home if you are able, at least one

day a fortnight.

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.

Little owl feeds on insects at dawn and dusk

WHO WOULD have thought

that around our estuary we have

a number of resident owls.

The little owl, also known

as the german owl, is a brown

and grey bird with white spots/

streaks. Weighing around 170gm

and only 23cm tall, they surely

are the cutest owl you have ever

seen.

They were introduced into

New Zealand between 1906 and

1910 from Germany and, apart

from one pair delivered to Rotorua,

were released in the South

Island where, along the east

coast, they are doing really well.

The reason for this importation

scheme at the time was for

the owls to help control small

introduced bird species that were

a causing damage to grain and

fruit crops.

But like many other introduced

species, why would they

stick to feeding on those alone

when they also love beetles,

moths, earwigs, frogs and lizards?

Surprisingly, unlike the better

known morepork, the little owl

feeds at dawn and dusk. During

the day they are quite content

perching on lamp posts, fence

posts or in trees.

No wonder our estuary is

classified as a “wetland of international

importance” due to

the variety and number of birds

residing here.

It is up to us to ensure that

they are safe from introduced

predators and have ample

and healthy food supplies, so

they can continue their stay

here.

Predator control around the

estuary is undertaken by the city

council, but we can all ensure

that we have rat traps in our

gardens to support this.

Keeping our dogs on the lead

not allowing them to scare birds

particularly now when many

birds are establishing nesting

sites is super important too.

I can highly recommend

dog owners check out Bexley

Reserve dog park off Pages Rd.

There is ample parking and huge

fenced off and fun play areas for

dogs to run without disturbing

the bird life.

Completely line a roasting pan

with foil (this will make clean-up

much easier).

Pour 2cm of water into bottom

of pan. Place a wire rack on top

of roasting pan to hold the pork

belly.

Place the pork belly on the wire

rack. The meat will cook above

the water, with the pork juices

dripping down below.

Make sure the pork belly is level

(if one part is lower/shorter the

skin will not cook evenly. if you

have to, use something oven-safe

to prop up a shorter part to keep

it completely level).

Spread 1 cup of salt evenly

across the pork belly skin. Place

into top half of oven. Bake for

about 40min until meat looks

cooked.

Remove pork belly and increase

oven temperature to 240 deg C.

The Book Of Hidden Wonders

by Polly Crosby

Hidden in the pages of a book, a secret story…

Romilly lives in a ramshackle house with her

eccentric artist father and her cat, Monty. She

knows little about her past – but she knows that

she is loved.

When her father finds fame with a series of

children’s books starring her as the main character,

everything changes: exotic foods appear on the table,

her father appears on TV, and strangers appear at

their door, convinced the books contain a treasure hunt

leading to a glittering prize. But as time passes, Romilly’s father becomes

increasingly suspicious of everything around him, until, before her eyes,

he begins to disappear altogether.

In her increasingly isolated world, Romilly turns to the secrets her father

has hidden in his illustrated books, realising that there is something far

darker and more devastating locked within the pages… The truth.

Feisty yet frugal Volvo station wagon

VOLVO HAS HAD a long and

notable motorsport heritage.

I became familiar with some

of that during my many visits to

Wellington to watch the Nissan-

Mobil 500 street race in the late

80s and early 90s.

While the Volvo T5 wagon

looked a little out of place on the

race track, it certainly had speed,

and it clocked up much success

globally, especially in European

touring car championship races.

The T5 had a square, boxy

shape that earned it the nickname

Swedish taxi, but the point is it

was amazingly successful, and

when I first drove it in road-going

form in 2004 I was blown away

with its power and performance.

Since then Volvo has marketed

many fine wagons and has

impressed with its power plants,

feisty engines which also double

as being frugal.

Enter 2020 and another Volvo

wagon has landed – the V60 T8

R-Design, another very quick

station wagon, yet also amazes

with its 2l/100km combined cycle

fuel usage claim.

That’s down to hybrid

technology, today’s V60 has a

turbocharged and supercharged

four-cylinder petrol engine. The

1969cc unit develops a hearty

246kW and 430Nm, if that’s not

enough, add into the equation

a rear-mounted electric engine

which adds 65kW and 240Nm,

it’s no surprise then the V60 is

swift when the accelerator is

given a nudge.

Volvo claims a 4.5sec standstill

to 100km/h acceleration time,

that’s quick and also translates to

a 3.5sec overtaking time – 80-

120km/h.

What’s more, the V60 feels fast,

it is fully responsive and delivers

in a fluid, decisive manner,

typical of both turbocharging and

supercharging techniques.

While its performance is every

bit as exciting as its predecessors,

it must be remembered that

hybrid technology is there for

a reason, and in this age where

caring for the environment has

become a major priority, the V60

also addresses that with plug-in

electric storage capability. The

system isn’t as generous as you

would get from a fully electric

vehicle, but it definitely has

purpose.

Volvo also claims and electric

range of around 30-40km,

which would satisfy for a daily

commute; however, there’s no

driver-selectable EV mode,

what happens is that the V60

will happily run all the time on

electric power only, but if you

FUNCTIONAL: Under the tailgate, the Volvo’s wagon

section can house up to 529-litres of cargo.

VOLVO V60 T8: Hybrid system allows up to 30km of motoring on one charge.

are forceful with the throttle

the engine will burst into life

and give you immediate

acceleration.

I was determined to make

the V60 to work electrically

for my commute, it does so

willingly, but there were a couple

of times when keeping pace with

traffic meant petrol power cut

in, however, the end result is

that massive fuel savings can be

achieved.

During my time in the

evaluation car the fuel usage

displays were listing between

3-4l/100km with 2.2l/100km

showing instantaneously at

100km/h, the engine turning

over well below 2000rpm in

eighth gear. Yes, the V60 has

a traditional torque converter

gearbox and, as you would

expect in a luxury car, the

transition of ratios is almost

seamless, the mechanicals are

fully refined.

You need no special technique

to drive the V60, it is very

orthodox and is built with

the sophistication we have

come to expect from this great

Scandinavian car maker.

It also gets a five-star safety

rating, no surprises there, Volvo

is sold universally as being

one of the world’s safest car

manufacturers.

• Price – Volvo V60 T8,

$121,400

• Dimensions – Length,

4761mm; width, 1850mm;

height, 1427mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1969cc, 246kW, 430Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.5sec

• Fuel usage – 2l/100km

I’ve made no secret over the

years of my affection for the

traditional station wagon, and

the V60 really appeals to me. In

practical terms, the rear cargo

section can hold up to 529-litres

and loading it is far from a chore,

the ride height is at an easy level

for lifting the groceries out of the

supermarket trolley and into the

vehicle.

That load space doesn’t

compromise the rear seating area

either, the V60 is spacious.

On the road it is quiet and

extremely comfortable, the spring

and damper rates are biased

towards comfort, which is no

surprise, the V60 is a true touring

car and it needs to cocoon the

occupants.

Because it sits low at just

1.42mm there is little body

movement when the tight corners

arrive.

Interestingly, the steering isn’t

quite as involving as I would have

expected for a car that sits on

substantial tyres (Continental,

235/40 x 19in), nevertheless, the

driving experience is satisfying,

and I particularly like the feel you

get as electric drive pushes from

the rear.

It gets a load of kit for its

$114,900 price tag (evaluation

car $121,400). The controls are

laid out for ease of use, many

functions are operated through a

large central touch screen display,

which is very intuitive.

Two Star Media employees

drive Volvos. I’m always being

reminded of the safety criteria

which influenced the decision

to buy into the brand. Nothing

has changed, Volvo has set the

benchmark in this area, and

when you are inside the car you

feel that quality build.

The V60 is remarkable in terms

of what it represents, its speed

puts it most definitely in the

performance car category, but it

is also a thrifty fuel miser. Add in

the wagon effect and you’ve got

many cars in one.

That’s just as you would expect

from Volvo, it is something just

that little bit different all round,

but spectacular nonetheless.
