Skydivers buzzing over beach

Plan to

restore

headstones

in Akaroa

cemeteries

ADRENALINE: Tandem jumpers floating down to Sumner beach at the weekend.

SUMNER WAS buzzing with

excitement at the weekend as

Skydiving Kiwis took the first

25 adrenaline junkies for a

spectacular tandem jump out of a

helicopter onto Sumner beach.

Skydiving Kiwis has partnered

with GCH Aviation’s Christchurch

operation Garden City Helicopters

to offer the country’s only helidive

skydiving adventure onto a

beach.

The first jumpers boarded a

BK117 at Garden City Helicopters

and got some stunning views over

the city and Banks Peninsula,

before jumping out over the

Pacific Ocean and landing on

Sumner beach.

“It couldn’t have gone any

better. The weather was amazing,

the jumps went like clockwork

and our customers were buzzing,”

said Skydiving Kiwis director

Lee Barraclough.

Caroline Blanchfield, group

marketing manager of GCH

Aviation, said that Garden City

Helicopters is thrilled to work

alongside Skydiving Kiwis in

launching this new tourism

experience. •Turn to page 4

A NEW bid to restore historicallysignificant

headstones in Akaroa

has been launched as the city

council re-evaluates spending in

the wake of the global pandemic.

If successful, it is hoped the

early settlers’ headstones will be an

important part of work that could

also see one of the town’s cemeteries

expanded and a memorial

entrance installed.

The Comte de Paris Descendants

Group and the Akaroa Cemeteries

Group put their plans to the city

council ahead of the most recent

annual plan deliberations.

As the city council pared-down

its Covid-19 affected budget,

the groups asked for the town’s

nationally important cemeteries to

be made a priority in the new year.

Representatives will meet city

council staff in the coming weeks

to discuss council plans for headstone

conservation, landscaping

and cemetery development.

Comte de Paris Descendants

Group chairwoman and Akaroa

Cemeteries Group member Linda

Sunderland said the September 4,

2010, earthquake damaged many

headstones. • Turn to page 5

Church bell ready to ring

• By Devon Bolger

THE BELL will again ring out on the

grounds of the St Saviour’s at Holy

Trinity Church, in Lyttelton, after

$150,000 was raised for a new one.

The new bell tower is now complete

following five years of fundraising by

the church.

It has been named ‘The Mariners’

Bell Tower’ in memory of Captain

John Cleaver who died in 2013 and

was a long-time community member,

and other seafarers who have helped

shape Lyttelton.

The original bell and the bell tower

roof were rescued when the Holy

Trinity Church building was demolished

after being badly damaged in

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Said Mark Penn, who is part of the

vestry: “We approached a number of

individuals who generously dug into

their pockets and came up with a very

significant chunk of the money.

“Six well-established organisations

also helped by donating money.

“After the quake, John Cleaver was

very keen on keeping as much as the

old church as possible. He spent many

months going down to the church

during the demolition and ensuring

anything that could be saved was

saved.”

Penn said they are very happy to see

the bell tower restored.

“The tower itself is capped with

what I call the witch’s hat which was

on the old bell tower of the original

church.

“The bell inside is the pilgrim’s bell

which came out from England during

the first days of colonisation.”

Following the demolition of the

Holy Trinity Church, the wooden St

Saviour’s church was relocated onto

the site from Cathedral Grammar

School.

It had also been damaged in the

earthquake and the school donated

it back to the Lyttelton parish to be

relocated and restored.

In Brief

Questions over recreation site safety

WASTEWATER FEEDBACK

• By Matt Slaughter

THE SAFETY of a $1.19 million

park which will be developed on

the old Redcliffs School site has

been questioned.

The construction of the recreation

reserve, Te Papa Kura Redcliffs

Park on Main Rd, Redcliffs

begins this month and is set for

completion by late this year or

early next year.

It will include two junior

sports fields, the existing playground

facilities, paths and space

for future public gatherings.

Redcliffs

School moved

to a new

campus on

Beachville Rd,

Redcliffs in

June.

Said

Darrell

Latham

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community

Board member

Darrell Latham: “I’m very happy

that Redcliffs School is on its new

site and absolutely 100 per cent

celebrate the school being back

in the community. However, I

find it somewhat ironic that it

was never considered safe for a

school to be there, but it’s going

to be considered safe for the site

to be used for sports activities

DEVELOPMENT: The plan to transform the former Redcliffs

School site into a park for sport and recreation has led to

questions around how safe this will be.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

for children and for the community,”

said Latham.

Redcliffs School principal Rose

McInerney said the decision for

the school not to return to the

site was not because it was ruled

as unsafe.

She said it was actually because

of the disruption another

earthquake could cause to pupil’s

education if the cliffs behind it

had to be assessed again.

“The geotechnical engineering

from that site actually came back

that there was a one in a million

life risk.

“We believe that site was

absolutely safe to return to, and

Rose

McInerney

so I think for

those reasons

it would be absolutely

perfect

to be a park as

well,” she said.

Said Latham:

“As long as

the correct

mitigation

measures are

implemented to ensure the safety

of the public and children that

use the park, then that’s fine

from my perspective, and my

understanding is that they’re

going to put in the required

fencing to ensure that that

becomes a reality.”

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the reason

why the site is considered safe for

a park is that “the psychosocial

implications of children

attending a school at the site do

not apply to park use, due to the

lower risk profile for park use

activity.

“The hazardous area below the

cliff is fenced off. Areas where

people are likely to gather and

linger are planned away from the

hazardous area.

“Various assessments were

undertaken at the time of the

land swap and the site was

considered safe for park use,”

Rutledge said.

Feedback on the city council’s

options for treated wastewater

from Akaroa closes on Sunday.

The city council has put

forward four options. One is

to continue discharging the

treated wastewater into the

harbour and the other three

are to use the highly treated

wastewater to irrigate new

areas of native trees at various

sites on Banks Peninsula.

Information outlining the

options is available online at ccc.

govt.nz/haveyoursay. Printed

booklets can be picked up at any

council service centre or library.

Submissions can be made

online or by filling out the form

at the back of the booklet and

posting it. Contact details need

to be included – anonymous

submissions are not accepted.

CORRECTION

A publishing error meant the

Ferrymead Night Markets were

incorrectly included in the

EXPERIENCE: Clear skies provided great views as skydivers weaved their way down to

Sumner beach.

Positive impact on local business

•From page 1

“This is a totally new product

for Christchurch and especially

right now it’s great to be bringing a

totally new tourism experience to

the market,” says Blanchfield.

The first weekend immediately

showed the positive impact the

new operation will have on local

business, as every jumper had a

large support crew, scouring the

skies to spot the helicopter at 10,000

feet and cheering as the parachutes

were landing on the well-marked 20

x 20m landing zone.

Locals also got caught up in

the excitement, as other visitors

stopped to join the helicopter

spotting on the beach.

Barraclough and his partner

are Sumner residents and they

hope their operation will become

another treasured asset to

Christchurch’s surfing and outdoor

adventure spot.

“It is our aim for tandem

skydivers to experience Sumner

differently, for residents to share

in the excitement that skydiving

creates, but also for other

businesses to benefit from the

visitors we bring into Sumner,”

Barraclough said.

40 headstones need to be repaired

• From page 1

The groups identified 40 needing work

soon after the earthquake.

The city council initially proposed

tackling up to 13 restorations, which was

reduced to six in 2018.

That work had yet to start, so the groups

proposed four heritage headstones should

be restored this financial year. It was hoped

two could be fixed by early next year.

Sunderland said the headstones of

Christian Jacob Waeckerle and Marie Eteveneaux,

and of Eli and Anette Bouriaud,

should be in the first tranche of restorations.

Waeckerle and Eteveneaux arrived in

Akaroa in 1840 on the Comte de Paris.

They married and Waeckerle was Akaroa’s

mayor from 1878 to 1880. They are buried

in the Anglican Cemetery.

Anette and Eli Bouriaud also arrived on

the settler ship. Their substantial home is a

landmark on Rue Grehan, one of the earliest

French streets. They are buried in the

Catholic Cemetery.

Sunderland hoped the headstones could

be restored by March, in time to belatedly

celebrate the anniversary of the arrival of

the French settler ship Comte de Paris.

The 180th-anniversary celebrations were

scheduled to take place last weekend, but

were postponed due to Covid-19 alert

level 2 restrictions, she said.

It was hoped a memorial entrance

commemorating the region’s early settlers

would be installed at the top of the Catholic

Cemetery ahead of the commemoration.

Sunderland said the cemeteries were a

under way.

heritage drawcard and, crucially, an important,

inter-generational link to the Akaroa

community’s past.

The groups hoped this link would be reinforced

if the city council mapped out plots

on adjacent land offered by the Catholic

Church for burials of all denominations.

A 2016 city council report suggested the

cemeteries were approaching capacity and

future burials may be shifted from Akaroa

to Duvauchelle Cemetery.

Beauty and

tragedy in

cemeteries

THERE IS beauty and tragedy in the

Akaroa cemeteries.

The beauty is in headstones, carefully

carved and intricately designed. With the

towering plinths, they suggest hard-won

prosperity in the newly-settled town.

The tragedy is in the descriptions etched

into stone, and the stories that surface

when their backgrounds are explored.

The Friends of the Akaroa Museum has

been working to photograph the headstones

and record the associated biographical

details.

The work is being shared on the find a

grave section of the ancestry.com website.

Linda Sunderland has so far photographed

the headstones up to 1880, and

Patsy Turner is working on the biographies.

Sunderland said many children’s

names featured on the 42 headstones

recorded so far.

One boy died when accidentally dragged

behind his father’s horse. Horse-related

accidents were numerous among the early

settlers, as were drownings.

Infectious diseases were also noted,

particularly diphtheria.

She hoped the work would further

contribute to local, national and family

histories, while reinforcing the historic

value of – and the need to preserve – the

cemeteries.

“We tend to forget that there is often

more accessible history in headstones than

there is in buildings,” she said.

“They are a wonderful link to our past.”

Crusaders fan thanks lifesavers

• By Matt Slaughter

JACQUI TURNBULL was

waiting in the line to watch the

Crusaders play the Blues with

her family last month.

The next thing she remembers

is darkness.

The 55-year-old had collapsed

after an asthma attack and if it

wasn’t for three doctors behind

her in the line, St John paramedics,

police and security staff,

Turnbull said she would be dead.

Said Turnbull: “We had parked

down on Lyttelton St and I was

walking quite fast because I

didn’t want Jack, my little grandson

to miss out on seeing the

horses going around.”

She didn’t have her inhaler

with her and when she got to the

gate and her family members

were getting tickets Turnbull was

feeling faint and decided to sit on

a nearby grass verge.

“That was the last thing I

remember,” she said.

St John ambulance staff came

to her aid and started doing cardiopulmonary

resuscitation but

she was not breathing.

That’s when doctors Tom

Brown, David Lyons-Ewing and

Rob Cole who were standing behind

her, stepped in and inserted

a tube into Turnbull’s mouth to

help her start breathing again.

“The doctors were actually

ICU doctors, it was so crazy, and

they just finished their shift to go

to the game.

“If they hadn’t have been there,

I was a goner,” she said.

The three doctors then left

Turnbull in the hands of ambulance

staff.

Said Turnbull: “The ambulance

apparently worked on me for 20

minutes or so before they even

left the stadium.”

TITLE-WINNERS: After suffering a life-threatening asthma

attack at the Crusaders v Blues game last month, Jacqui

Turnbull received tickets to watch the red and blacks beat

the Highlanders on August 8.

PHOTO: GETTY

She was transported to the intensive

care unit at Christchurch

Hospital.

Turnbull’s family was told she

may suffer brain damage, but

miraculously, she recovered and

was discharged two days after

her asthma attack.

Crusaders staff heard

Turnbull’s story and invited

her, her daughter Jess Blomeley

and Blomeley’s friend Sophie

Thompson to the team’s training

in the lead-up to the Highlanders

clash, where she met with

Brown, police and security staff

who helped her, and coach Scott

Robertson.

Said Turnbull: “Tom [Brown]

the young doctor had actually

come in to see me when I was in

the ward, it must have been Monday

morning, so I had actually

met him prior to this. But because

I was so spaced out, just saying

thank you didn’t even cut it.

“It was really cool to be able to

go back there a few weeks later

and meet up with everybody and

it was very overwhelming.”

Meanwhile, Turnbull and her

family got free tickets to see the

Crusaders beat the Highlanders

on August 9 and said she will

never be caught without her

inhaler again.

Helping Canterbury kids reach their

A myriad of groups

help keep our

community moving.

Reporter Bea Gooding

speaks to the Graeme

Dingle Foundation

Canterbury manager

Chris Davis about how

its programmes help

children build resilience

and important life skills

Could you tell me about the

Graeme Dingle Foundation?

Graeme Dingle Foundation

Canterbury has been supporting

young people in our community

through the delivery of positive

child and youth development

programmes since 2002. We

work with communities,

predominantly in areas with

high levels of social deprivation,

to provide life-changing

opportunities for young people.

To date, we have delivered our

programmes to 33,042 young

people across Canterbury.

Our vision is to empower

our young people by providing

them with the tools to overcome

any obstacles that may come

their way. Our programmes

are currently benefitting over

3700 young people every week

in 22 schools across Canterbury

of which 2592 students are in

Christchurch specifically. These

programmes build lifelong

skills, positive relationships

and qualities such as integrity,

respect and resilience that will

last the students a lifetime.

What kind of programmes

are available?

Graeme Dingle Foundation

Canterbury runs three

programmes, Kiwi Can, Stars

and Project K. Kiwi Can is the

primary school programme.

The students attend a Kiwi

Can session each week and

learn core values and life skills

through games and activities.

Stars is a year 9 peer mentoring

programme. Year 12 and year

EMPOWERING

YOUNG: Chris

Davis of the

Graeme Dingle

Foundation

is providing

children

with tools

to overcome

obstacles.

SLOAN

13 students are trained to run

mentoring classes once a week for

year 9s. The students learn about

bullying, social media, positive

relationships, teamwork and

respecting each other. Project K

is a 21-day wilderness expedition

for year 10 students. The students

are taken 200 km away from

school into the Southern Alps

and then hike, camp and cycle

their way back to school. Project

K is a journey of self-discovery.

I understand the programme

has experienced an increased

demand recently. Why has this

been the case?

The last few years have been

very difficult for young people

in Christchurch, more so than

in other parts of Aotearoa. The

psychosocial impacts of the

earthquakes are still lingering,

with parts of East Christchurch

remaining uninhabitable due

to the earthquake-ravaged “red

zone.”

More recently, these same

young people have had to deal

with the horror forced upon them

by an act of terrorism, right on

their doorstep. Now they are faced

with Covid-19, with the “new

normal” that this brings and with

likely job losses impacting their

home lives – the mental health

and well-being of these families

may be negatively impacted,

adversely affecting many young

people across these communities.

Census 2018 statistics across

the communities we work in a

paint a sobering picture, with

nearly a quarter of all school

leavers not gaining qualifications

and a NEET rate (Not in

Employment, Education and/or

Training) of above 15 per cent.

full potential

What kind of issues have

been impacting school children

recently? And how has the

programme helped them

overcome these barriers?

School principals ask for the

Graeme Dingle Foundation

programmes to come into their

schools because we provide

positive youth development that

complements and extends the

positive behaviour for learning

work that schools are already

doing for their students.

“Many of [our] students lack

the privilege of being immersed

in and surrounded by positive

role models in their life. The Kiwi

Can programme has provided the

opportunity for our kids to learn,

practice and demonstrate the

implementation of values into their

everyday actions and behaviours.

I can confidentially say that the

programme will undoubtedly have

long term benefits for our students

and their ability to positively

contribute to our community.” –

Janeane Reid, principal of Te

Waka Unua School.

What are the common

barriers that hold children

back from reaching their full

potential in life?

It is always so important to

remember that not all childhoods

are created equal. Some kids

have a tough start and it can

hold them back. Big factors

are poverty, family instability

with lots of moving house and

changing schools, lack of good

housing and hunger. Our goal as

an organisation is to help those

kids to know that, no matter

what their start is in life, what

they have inside is strong enough

to overcome any obstacle.

Why is an organisation like

this important for Canterbury

kids?

I think a school principal can

answer this better than I can:

“Kiwi Can has a positive impact

on the students at Bamford

School. Through the programme,

senior students have become more

confident and have developed the

ability to take risks in front of their

peers without being embarrassed.

Furthermore, they have learnt

valuable lessons about resilience,

honesty, integrity and leadership

through fun and engaging

activities,” – Shona Hewlett,

principal of Ngutuawa School.

What advice would you

give parents and educators to

instil positivity, resilience and

confidence in kids, and why?

The teachers and principals

we meet and work with are

fantastic and are all working

really hard on behalf of

Canterbury’s youth.

Graeme Dingle Foundation

Canterbury’s role is to provide a

set time each week where

the students can really focus on

learning about respect, positive

relationships, resilience and

integrity.

These positive values are of

course also being learned about

during regular class time and at

home.

Our foundation’s role is to

focus strongly on these topics

in a whole-class format every

week. The students get a chance

to play games that model positive

behaviours and to carefully

consider and discuss their values

and actions.

Our classes are a chance to

talk about values regularly with

young people and our school

leaders model good values and

behaviours.

Kids become what they see and

hear.

POWER VINYASA YOGA

Many people find Apollo’s Power Vinyasa practice to be effective in

relieving and preventing back pain and tension-related types of pain.

yoga pose of the month

Standing forward bend is a great counter pose

to relieve tightness in the back of your body

caused by running, cycling, sitting and so forth

and relieves compression and pain in your back.

It is also a good pose to relax tension from your

shoulders, neck and jaw. Standing forward bend

creates a relaxed state of mind.

STANDING

BEND

• Stand with your feet parallel at hip width.

Evenly spread your weight through the length

and breadth of your feet.

• Bend your knees a little. Fold your upper body

down towards the floor from your hips. Avoid

rounding your back as much as possible.

• Do not bounce or try to force your body to

bend deeply. Relax gently and gradually into

greater depth.

• Set the palms of your hands at the back of

your Achilles tendons or calves. Draw your

elbows towards one another behind your legs.

• Draw your shoulder blades away from your

ears. Relax your neck and allow your head to

hang free.

• As you progress, shift the weight of your hips

forward and stack your hips over your ankles.

INCREASING demand

for free legal services due

to Covid-19 has prompted

the Government to provide

significant funding to

community law centres

across the country.

Community Law Canterbury

is among dozens

to benefit from a $3.47

million funding boost over

three years – in addition

to the almost $8 million in

funding that was already

announced in Budget 2020.

The increase will add

$1.2 million to community

law services in the current

financial year.

Said Community Law

Canterbury board chairman

Jeremy Finn: “We’re

delighted to get it in recognition

of the huge, unmet

demand that will continue

to increase post-Covid-19.

“But we also know that

demand is at full capacity

now, so we would expect

the funding will allow us

to increase our staffing and

retain experienced lawyers.”

He said the majority of

issues clients have faced

recently involved employment,

changing work conditions,

family law matters,

immigration, finances and

tenancy issues.

The extra funding comes

at a time when Community

Law Centres around

the country have been

experiencing a significant

decline in donations because

of Covid-19.

The Canterbury facility

will receive their share of

about $120,000 a year for

the next few years.

The extra funding was

important to retain and

increase staff levels to allow

for higher volumes of casework

work to be completed,

and for part-time staff to

move into full-time roles.

This was especially the

case in Canterbury.

In the Jaws of the Dragon

How China Is Taking Over NZ

by ron asher

China Inc., the business arm of China’s repressive dictatorship, is trying to

take over the world by grabbing key sectors of various countries’ economies

as part of its strategic plan for global control of the world’s resources. China’s

rapid arms build-up suggests that it is preparing to back its ever increasing

demands on other countries with force.China chose New Zealand as the first

Western country with which to have a free trade agreement, which is more

about colonising and dominating our economy than about free trade.

This book should be read by every New Zealander since it affects the

future prospects of the country in respect of economic welfare, sovereignty

and national security. It is a case of getting a grip on the situation now or

sleepwalking to a situation where New Zealanders will finish up as lowly paid

serfs in the land that was built by the sweat and toil of the pioneers.

Searching for Charlie

by tom scott

Charles Upham was the most highly decorated soldier in the Commonwealth

forces of WWII, and could arguably be called the bravest soldier of the war.

An unassuming stock worker/ valuer at the beginning of the war, he stormed

through Crete and the Western Desert amazing and confounding his comrades

with his exploits. He won two Victoria Crosses (the only combat soldier ever to

do so) and in the opinion of his superiors deserved many more. Captured, he

became an escape artist and ended his war in the famous Colditz POW camp.

Shy and reluctant to take credit for his actions, he deflected all praise onto his

soldiers and was described as “distraught” that he had been honoured. He

then farmed in North Canterbury until his death in 1994, avoiding the limelight

wherever possible. There has been one previous biography, “Mark of the Lion”

published in 1962, which was a major bestseller and sells to this day

Taking the Punches

by Mike edwards

A story of the cut-throat world of promoting in New Zealand boxing, from the

Edwards. ‘Who would want to be a boxing promoter? It’s like being on a

treadmill you can’t get off, as you forever chase the elusive pot of gold at the

end of the rainbow.’

Taking the Punches is legendary trainer and promoter Mike Edwards’ story,

from an Otahuhu gym in the 1960s through to the height of modern era. It’s a

world of showmen, superstars, larger-than-life characters, brawlers, shysters,

fraudsters and out-and-out criminals. Anyone who is anyone in the story of New

Zealand boxing has worked with (or against) Mike, including Tuna Scanlan,

Get behind Redcliffs Four Square

MP Ruth

Dyson writes

about the

new Four

Square

supermarket

in Redcliffs

CHANGES are

always challenging.

During the lockdown, I heard

many comments from people

about the value of our “essential

workers” and how much more

they were appreciated. Of course,

all those who work in our health

system were high on the list. But

so were others, less obvious but

very important.

They included our shop workers

who kept us supplied with

our groceries but also worked

exceptionally hard to ensure that

we shopped in safety. At the local

Redcliffs New World, as I stood

in the social distanced queue,

many people noted the staff’s

attention to sanitation and how

friendly they were to people who

were sometimes impatient but

who were also anxious about the

Covid-19 situation.

So when the announcement

came that New World Redcliffs

was to be no longer and was being

replaced by Four Square, and

that some of these valued staff

would not have their jobs, there

was understandably a negative

community response.

So I want to put in a big

plug for our new Four Square

supermarket. I remember very

soon after the February 22, 2011,

quakes when the supermarket

was destroyed, Foodstuffs was

very hesitant about rebuilding.

I argued strongly for the

supermarket to come back but

understood that even prior to the

earthquakes, the viability of the

business was not strong.

That situation has, sadly, not

changed. What has changed is

our shopping habits and the

local New World was not sustainable.

Foodstuffs could have taken

the call to just quit the area

completely. But they remain

committed to serving the local

community so took the tough

call to change to Four Square. It

has been a very tough time for

everyone but especially for the

workforce.

We all need to get behind this

local business if it is going to

survive. No-one would want to

see it fail so, now more than ever,

it’s time to put our money where

our mouth is and watch this

OPTIMISTIC: Jolt Dance founder Lyn Cotton and dancer Carl Te Tone Huia were meant to

perform their original works in London this year, but it was postponed due to Covid-19.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

CANTABRIANS will soon be

treated to a performance which

challenges perspectives about

dance and disability in the

creative arts industry.

Representatives from Jolt

Dance company were due to

showcase their work at performance

art theatre Lyric Hammersmith

in London during

May but it was cancelled due to

Covid-19.

Jolt founder Lyn Cotton is

feeling optimistic in spite of the

growing uncertainty in the coming

months.

“We’re looking at it positively

and view it as a postponement,

we still want to show London

what New Zealand is capable of,”

she said.

“We’re not angry about it, this

is a time of patience and reflection

and it’s given us an opportunity

to look at the work again in

more depth.”

Including Cotton, Jolt dancers

and tutors Carl Huia, Aleasha

Seaward, Rochelle Waters and

Renee Ryan were meant to spend

a week in London to take part in

Amici Dance Theatre Company’s

40th-anniversary celebrations

and raised $10,000 to do so.

Amici is also an inclusive

dance company and invited the

team to present two original

works, discuss their achievements

and host teaching sessions.

They Call Me Sam is a short

film that chronicled life with

down syndrome and challenges

attitudes about having a disability.

which is shaped by Huia’s Māori

culture and his lived experience

of autism.

The word “takiwatanga” is

used to describe autism and

means “in his or her own time

and space.”

Cotton met Amici founder

Wolfgang Strange in 1995, and

after spending a few years under

his wing, she was inspired to

open her own dance studio with

a similar concept of breaking

barriers within the disability

community.

three years, and when I came

back to NZ I set up my own Jolt

classes and it grew from there,”

she said.

“We take what the dancers

give us which shapes our work –

it’s not just about participation,

it’s about excellence and for

people with disabilities to have

their voices heard.”

Not only do they offer dance

classes, teaching and choreography

training was also available

which leads to industry level

pathways through performance

and leadership.

Jolt’s “Move” programme is

the country’s only teacher training

programme for people with

disabilities, taking their work

into mainstream schools to teach

non-disabled children.

Said Cotton: “All peer pressure

starts to drop away when they

come together and dance. It’s

okay to be different.

“The bar was set low for what

people with disabilities can

achieve, and now they’re playing

catch up because they’ve been

denied that opportunity for so

long.”

Jolt Dance celebrates their 20th

anniversary next year and has

since grown to more than 150

dancers.

They will plan to showcase

their original works in

Christchurch in October.

Wine

Class borne out in a long-stemmed glass

• By Mark Henderson

EXPECTATIONS are a funny

thing.

Naturally, I try to avoid them

when I’m tasting, as they could

cloud one’s judgement and

impartiality.

I know the identity of the wines

in a tasting, but they are always

masked and in random order: this

is dubbed “single blind tasting”.

My regular tasting duo

of Collins and McLaren are

informed of the wine style and

vintage spread, but know neither

the identities nor order in which

they are served: this is “double

blind tasting”.

The average price of today’s

wines created an expectation of

class, which was borne out in the

glass.

Some chalky/fruit pith and

zesty acid interplay brings lovely

liveliness to the texture. A fresh,

tangy note hangs on the long

finish. Delightful.

2018 Quartz Reef Bendigo

Single Ferment Pinot Noir

Price: $85

Rating: Excellent

A nose of intrigue, balsamic/

umami influences shift to

perfume and dusty stones,

raspberry with time.

Richly fruited entry, loganberry,

mixed berries, cinnamon and

spices lead, evolving to savoury

notes and fresh, sour cherry

on the long close. Weight but

no excess, growing in richness

and integration, adding earthy

touches. Lots of interest.

2018 Chard Farm Viper

Vineyard Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $81

Rating: Excellent

Subtle yet attractively expressed

nose of berryfruit, rhubarb,

perfume and savoury notes,

kid leather perhaps. Somewhat

enigmatic, starting subtly, spices

and wisps of balsamic giving way

to sweet fruit as this blossoms

in the glass, showing deceptive

power and structure. Crisp acidity

keeps this lively with a lifted, tart

note on the long finish.

2014 Misha’s Vineyard

Verismo Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $75

Rating: Very good to excellent

Notably fragrant nose with

additions of stewed fruits,

balsamic notes, anise and dusty

stones.

A boldness to the palate,

leading with spice and savoury

notes, a little tilled earth,

mushroom and forest floor/

funkiness building with aeration.

Already round and supple,

this bottle-aged release can be

enjoyed now.

Tasty Bites

Hashing up a breakfast of champions

Corned beef/silverside

isn’t everyone’s cup

of tea and it’s often

a textural thing. But

leftover corned beef

makes for an amazing

fry-up the next day,

which crisps it up nicely.

In fact, forget leftovers,

these recipes are worth

cooking corned beef for

by themselves

Corned beef hash

8 servings

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter

3 cups potatoes, diced

1 cup red capsicum, chopped

4 eggs

¼ tsp salt (optional, as corned

beef is already salty)

¼ tsp pepper

Pinch chilli flakes (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 deg C. In a

medium sized oven-proof skillet,

melt butter then add

diced potatoes. Cook 5-7min,

until the potatoes are tender and

slightly crispy. Add capsicum and

onions, and cook 4-6min until

tender.

Add the corned beef and cook

until warmed and slightly brown.

Crack the eggs on top of the

hash. Place the skillet in the oven

and bake for 8-10min until eggs

are set. Season with salt, pepper

and pinch of chilli flakes.

Corned beef hash

1 cup plain flour

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter, melted

Roughly smash potatoes (so that

they are still chunky). Set aside for

30min to cool completely.

Add beef, mustard, chives, eggs,

and salt and pepper to potato.

Stir until combined. Place flour

into a separate bowl. Using ¼

cupful of mixture at a time, shape

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.

To hear a bellbird is a privilege

WHAT A privilege it is

when you hear a bellbird at

your home.

For me in town, that is an

irregular event but if you

live near the estuary/on or

near the Port Hills you may

be lucky enough to regularly

see bellbirds in your

garden.

Explorer Captain Cook

described its song “like

small bells exquisitely

tuned”. Well described

I thought and hence its

name.

The bellbird is endemic to

NZ and found throughout

the country. Unfortunately

numbers declined when

native forest were cleared

for farmland and predators

were introduced.

However, the bellbird

managed to adapt somewhat

to this change of its

native habitat and can now

be seen in native as well as

in exotic forests and even

urban parks.

Better still, in areas where

predator control is in place

numbers are steadily increasing

again. With many

homeowners around our

estuary brave enough to

trap predators we can hear

an increase in the bellbird

numbers again.

The bellbird is a honey

eater but will also eat

insects and fruit and plays

a very important ecological

role by the pollinating

native vegetation flowers

but also by dispersing the

native fruit seeds.

An important role for

this tiny bird with the male

weighing a mere 34gm

and the female only 27gm.

Laying three to four eggs,

the female will incubate the

eggs by herself but the feeding

duties of the chicks is

ADAPTABLE:

The bellbird

sings ‘like

small bells

exquisitely

tuned.’

COLLINS

shared by both parents.

Predator control around

the estuary is undertaken

by the city council but we

can all help by placing rat

and/or possum traps in

our gardens to support

this. Planting native trees

on your section like the

kowhai will also assist in

bringing the bellbird to

your garden.

The Department of

Conservation website has a

list of recommended native

trees and scrubs to plant

on your section to attract

the bellbird and other

bird species. Worth an

investigation.

This wonderful home designed by wellrenowned

local architect John Chaplin, has

been a love affair and their home of over 40

years.

This young couple’s dream was for a

perfect site with enticing views for a family

home. An amazing vision for this new home

began in the late 1970s, with changes in

the 1980s, then an extensive alteration and

landscape design in the 2000s. The final

stage post-earthquake in 2015.

So many interesting features, seductive

angles, light filled spaces, a well thought

about and much loved home over a series of

half levels, with endless options.

Generous living areas flow into outdoor

garden spaces, decks and boardwalks. The

main deck, a magnificent structure to enjoy

the sunrises, sunsets and everchanging views

of the estuary and across Pegasus Bay.

The perfect home for entertaining, with a

sensational private and sheltered courtyard

Sitting proudly on the hill, among the tree

Vibrant Veloster joins long line of coupes

I KNOW LIFE often means

disappointments but it will take

me a bit of time to get over missing

out on a drive of Hyundai’s new i30

N fastback – a high-performance

car based around its hot-hatch

stablemate.

See, the turbocharged 2-litre

manual was a casualty of the

coronavirus level 4 lockdown, I was

due to have it within that period

but it has since been seconded to

duties in other parts of the country.

That aside, the other Hyundai

models I was scheduled into have

arrived, and a week with the latest

generation Hyundai Veloster

almost made up for not stepping

into the i30 N.

The Veloster has been around

since 2012, and has just undergone

a major transformation. Saying

that, the one element that makes

the Veloster stand out from the

crowd hasn’t been changed. What

appears to be a traditional twodoor

coupe is actually a three-door.

Yes, there are two doors on the

passenger side and just one on the

driver’s side.

The concept was first introduced

with safety in mind, the rationale

being that when children are seated

in the rear they can only exit from

the footpath side of the vehicle,

egress to the road is denied. Bear in

mind, too, that the Veloster is only

a four-seater.

Some might say the design of

the Veloster is outlandish, I’d say

it is bold yet trendy, it is fresh and

with an aggressive body and with

vivid colours to choose from,

the Veloster certainly makes a

statement. The evaluation car was

finished in a matte gun metal grey,

it drew a lot of attention during the

time it was in my care.

The Veloster arrives with two

engine options – a 2-litre naturally

aspirated unit that develops

110kW. Or else there is a 1.6-litre

turbocharged option – the 150kW

engine that powers several other

Hyundai and Kia models.

The evaluation car was the

latter, and it is an engine I’m quite

familiar with, it is no outright

powerhouse like the engine in the

i30 N, but it is a feisty little unit and

stands out for its honesty and fussfree

behaviour. Although it must

be said there is genuine exhaust

sound, there’s a constant throb

under load and an enticing crackle

between gears.

When the Veloster first

appeared, it was Hyundai’s first

full-production vehicle with a

dual clutch gearbox; that type of

transmission is still used, although

it now gets seven gears that can

be manipulated through steering

wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

In terms of driving, DCT units

can be treated much like a normal

STYLISH: The Hyundai Veloster is characterised by a short,

squat rear quarter.

HYUNDAI VELOSTER: Bold wheels add to its aggressive looks.

automatic transmission, the big

difference is that in itself it works

like a manual but without a manual

clutch and, of course, there’s no

power-robbing characteristics

of traditional torque converter

system.

The result is a quick shifting unit

that doesn’t load the engine, power

is clean, and with a strong torque

figure (265Nm) and available low,

and all of the way between 1500

to 4500rpm, the Veloster turbo is

a quick-reacting car which is no

slouch against the stopwatch.

It will lunge to 100km/h in

7.5sec, which will satisfy those

who are happy with moderate

performance, but for me the

big surprise is the mid-speed

performance, it will scorch through

a highway overtake (80-120km/h)

in 4.2sec, made possible through

solid turbo boost and quickshifting

ratios which are ideal

for the wide cross-section of our

driving styles and journeys.

On the subject of figures,

the Veloster turbo is rated by

Hyundai with a 7.1-litre per

100km combined cycle fuel usage

average. At 100km/h I recorded an

instantaneous readout of 5l/100km

with the engine working over freely

at 2000rpm.

I guess if you explore the

turbo boost frequently it will be

hard to match Hyundai’s claim,

• Price – Hyundai Veloster,

$52,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4250mm; width,

1800mm; height, 1409mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1591cc, 150kW,

265Nm, seven-speed dual

clutch automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.1l/100km

and with just a 50-litre fuel tank

you need to be mindful fill-ups

may come around quicker than

expected.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the

power and strength of that wee

engine, it is delightful and provides

the fun factor when you feel the

need for a quick burst, taking into

account that several drive modes

allow the driver to choose how the

car behaves, from economical to

sport.

In terms of handling, the

Veloster feels sharp up front with

definite turn-in. Sport specification

Michelin tyres (225/40 x 18in)

have high-grip properties and

combined with a fully independent

suspension the car feels well

attached to the road.

Ride quality isn’t jeopardised by

a definite firming of the dampers

and springs and at just 1.4m tall

gravitational movement in a corner

needn’t be considered.

The Veloster turbo is only

available in one fully-specced

level – Limited. It is loaded with

goodies such as full leather, heated

and cooled seats, heated steering

wheel, head-up display, satellite

navigation, keyless entry and

ignition, and all the other bells and

whistles that make up Hyundai’s

top level trim spec. It also gets a full

safety suite of technologies.

Hyundai has had a long

history of producing two-door

coupes, even though you could

argue the Veloster is essentially a

three-door. When I first started

writing about cars in 1988, one of

the first I drove was the Scoupe,

Hyundai’s first sporty car, that

transformed into what Hyundai

called simply Coupe around 1996,

the Tiburon followed, then in 2012

the Veloster first landed in New

Zealand.

That history has served

Hyundai well, the Veloster is a

beautifully-made car and one

which is both fun and exciting. It

dares to be different with its styling,

but that is part of its appeal, if you

want to stand out in a crowd, at

$52,990 ($45,990 non-turbo), it’s a

relatively affordable way to make a

statement.

IT COULD be a while until

the eastern suburbs start to

see Lianne Dalziel’s campaign

aspirations for the area come to

fruition.

During October’s local body

elections, Ms Dalziel identified

repairs to the eastern part of the

city’s footpaths, pipes and roads

as one of her main priorities for

this term.

“We need a fully integrated

programme of works for the

east, I have loosely called this

the eastern alliance, which

would essentially be an alliance

of contractors who can take

the whole area bit by bit and

systematically get the work

done,” she said during the

campaign.

But chief executive Dawn

Baxendale said any request to

pursue a specific project in the

east would have to be agreed

upon by council.

City councillors are yet to pass

on any guidance to staff around

this, she said.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Said Cr MacDonald: “In

the current environment it’s

clear business as usual is not

appropriate and the council

needs to look at how we enable

this 12-month rates increase

freeze to occur, it’s crucial for

the economic confidence of our

city.”

Ms Dalziel said the las thing

the city council needed was for

someone to hi the panic button.

“Calm heads must and will

prevail,” she said.

“Our residents and businesses

will be depending on us to

make adjustments, and we will,

however, we will need advice

on the impacts on all aspects of

Vaping rules

in CDHB

spotlight

the council’s budget, which is

not entirely funded by rates, and

the consequences that will flow

from decisions we make.

“The Annual Plan is not

signed off for three months so

we have time to ge this advice.

A the same time, the council

is meeting with our economic

development agency, ChristchurchNZ,

the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce

and other key players so we are

best prepared for the economic

challenges that lie ahead.”

City council chief executive

Dawn Baxendale did not rule a

zero rates rise out.

“We’re considering a series of

options in light of the extraor-

– page 4

dinary circumstances related to

Covid-19. We will discuss these

options with elected members

as we develop the Annual Plan,”

she said.

The push from city councillors

for a freeze on rates rises comes

shortly after Minister of Finance

Grant Robertson announced

a $12.1 billion package to aid

the economy in response to the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The biggest boost is $5.1

billion towards wage subsidies

for affected businesses in all

sectors and regions.

24 Stoke Street, Sumner 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living, 1 study, 1 dining, 2 off street parks

Countless opportunities exist at this grand, character-rich residence occupying

a substantial 1025m² approx site only a block from Sumner Beach. Those with

an eye for opportunity will appreciate the immense development potential.

Zoned residential medium density and set on two titles, the possibility for

buyers to construct multiple dwellings or a multi-level complex is presented.

The unique arrangement and sheer size of the section will also draw the

attention of investors and developers.

This expansive four-bedroom home has served as a magnificent family

residence, and the fine finishes throughout will draw those who value classic

yet contemporary style.

A superb Palazzo kitchen forms the social centre of the open plan area where

bi-fold doors invite you to entertain on the hardwood deck or the generously

proportioned lawn.

Also situated downstairs is a formal lounge, the first of the bedrooms and two

of the bathrooms.

The first floor enjoys an excellent outlook over the Scarborough hinterland and

hosts an office, sunroom, third bathroom and the remaining three bedrooms.

Re-roofing, re-wiring and re-plumbing coupled with extensive heating

solutions, ensures comfort and peace of mind. A further benefit is considerable

off-street parking that complements the garage.

Constructed in the late 19th century, the home was originally organised as

three separate flats. Investment-focused buyers could revert to the previous

configuration with ease, particularly as the property also contains two

kitchenettes.

From here, you can embrace the Sumner lifestyle, with the beach, cafes, bars

and schooling all a leisurely walk away and the sound of the surf superb.

Uniquely appealing in every respect, this property will attract a wide range of

buyers, and commands your earliest viewing.
