Well known publican to

get back into the ring

• By Chris Barclay

WELL KNOWN publican Dean

Calvert is stepping back into

the ring 27 years after his final

professional boxing bout to raise

money for charity.

Gentle ribbing about a sparring

session between Calvert and another

seasoned combatant Danny

Masterson has manifested into a

fundraising fight card for the Trek

charity for children at Cowles

Stadium on October 31.

Calvert, who has the Valley Inn,

in Heathcote, had a 7-0 record as

a professional, last fought in 1993.

“Danny and I were in the New

Zealand team together. We never

fought, that’s how it all come

about. It was just a bit of banter

one night,” he said.

“Danny said we should have a

sparring session to see how we’d

go against each other. One thing

led to another over a couple of

beers and I said: ‘Stuff the sparring,

let’s have a fight for charity’.’’

Calvert said there would be five

amateur and four corporate fights

on the card which hopes to raise

at least $20,000 for the Christchurch

arm of the charity formerly

known as Variety Bash.

And clearly he was taking the

main event seriously.

The Bird In The Bamboo Cage

by Hazel Gaynor

War imprisoned them. Friendship set them free.

China, 1941. With Japan’s declaration of war on

the Allies, Elspeth Kent’s future changes forever.

When soldiers take control of the missionary

school where she teaches, comfortable security is

replaced by rationing, uncertainty and fear.

Ten-year-old Nancy Plummer has always felt

safe at Chefoo School. Now the enemy, separated

indefinitely from anxious parents, the children must

turn to their teachers – to Miss Kent and her new Girl

Guide patrol especially – for help. But worse is to come

when the pupils and teachers are sent to a distant internment camp.

Unimaginable hardship, impossible choices and danger lie ahead.

Inspired by true events, this is the unforgettable story of the life-changing

bonds formed between a young girl and her teacher, in a remote corner of

a terrible war.

The Mystery Woman

by Belinda Alexandra

In a small town, everyone is watching ... Secrets, scandal and betrayal

in 1950s small town Australia: the stunning new novel from bestseller

Belinda Alexandra. She had thought Shipwreck Bay was simply a remote

town where people were bored senseless with their little lives. Now she

saw its virtuous facade hid something darker, more sinister.

Rebecca Wood takes the role as postmistress in a sleepy seaside town,

desperate for anonymity after a scandal in Sydney. But she is confronted

almost at once by a disturbing discovery - her predecessor committed

suicide. To add to her worries, her hopes for a quiet life are soon

threatened by the attentions of the dashing local doctor, the unsettling

presence of a violent whaling captain and a corrupt shire secretary, as

well as the watchful eyes of the town’s gossips. Yet in spite of herself she

is drawn to the enigmatic resident of the house on the clifftop, rumoured

to have been a Nazi spy.

Calls for plan to manage tourism

• By Louis Day

CALLS HAVE been made for a

plan to manage the impacts of

tourism on the Banks Peninsula.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board has called for a

destination management plan to

be developed. It believes the plan

is needed in order to address

current and future

economic,

social and

environmental

issues posed by

tourism.

The board has

Tori Peden

called for the

plan to focus

on cruise ship

management, freedom camping,

infrastructure demands while

looking at how many and what

type of visitors provide the best

value for the community.

The Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employment

outlines destination management

as the “management of all

aspects of a destination

that contribute to a visitor’s

experience,” bringing together

various stakeholders to achieve

sustainable tourism.

Development of such a plan

revolves around the perspectives,

needs and expectations of not

only visitors but also local iwi,

the tourism industry, businesses,

residents as well as central and

local government.

MBIE states that adopting a

development management plan

can enable areas to respond to

changing conditions and determine

the type of tourism that is

most beneficial to all sectors of

the community.

Community board chairwoman

Tori Peden said the development

of the plan would require

a multi-agency approach and

significant community input.

“Perhaps there is an

Environment Canterbury aspect

of it and also a Department of

Conservation and Ngai Tahu

involvement. It is a big project

and we can’t do it alone, that’s

why we are wanting to work as a

group,” she said.

She thought the plan was needed

now more than ever under the

current Covid-19 circumstances.

“Going forward we are

not going to have as many

international tourists as usual

over the next year or two,

however, we think this is the best

time to be proactive rather than

reactive.”

She said the board would be

advocating for funding to be

allocated towards the initiation

of the project from the city

council’s Long Term Plan

budget.

national titles

• From page 1

The 49-year-old started his

preparations last December and

ramped up training with threehour

sessions on the treadmill

during the Covid-19 level four

lockdown before hitting the gym.

“It’s been great for the health,

I’ve dropped from 115kg down to

87kg,” he said, noting his opponent

has also worked into fighting

shape.

“Danny was 108kg and now he’s

down to 92kg,” Calvert said.

The pair have held several

national titles while Calvert

and Masterson also took

ownership of the Jameson Belt

for New Zealand’s most scientific

senior boxer in 1992 and 1993

respectively.

Calvert fought for New Zealand

at the Oceania championships in

Auckland in 1989 with Masterson

and was confident he was still

equipped with his necessary

pugilistic skills to last six 2min

rounds, at the most.

“It’s slowly coming back. It’s

still there, I’m just a bit slower

than I used to be. Hopefully, I’ll

finish him in the second or third,”

he said.

Clock winds back for

former race car driver

• By Matt Slaughter

A FORMER race car driver

took a ride down memory lane

when a Jaguar C-Type visited his

retirement village in Sumner.

Denis Stanton, who lives

at Edith Cavell Lifecare and

Village, was able to relive

his racing days when Craig

Pidgeon, the son of one of

Stanton’s race car partners, took

him for a spin.

In his heyday, the 81-year-old

drove race cars including an

Austin A35, an Austin A40

Farina and a Ford Anglia at race

tracks throughout New Zealand.

He was one of the first people

to drive on Ruapuna Raceway

in Templeton when it opened in

1963.

“I raced at Ruapuna, Wigram,

the track in Blenheim, the one

in Timaru, and Waimate.

“It was just a hobby. My

parents were dead against it, you

know, they didn’t like me doing

that sort of thing but, looking

back on it, I think it kept me

alive because I never had a

smash.”

He said the ride around Sumner

and Lyttleton took him back

THRILL: Edith Cavell Lifecare and Village resident Denis

Stanton was taken for a drive in a classic Jaguar C-Type by

Craig Pidgeon. ​

to his younger days.

“It was like growing up again.

“We drove over the hill to Lyttelton

and around Summit Rd

which was rather nice actually,”

he said.

He said Pidgeon kept to the

speed limit for the duration of

the journey.

The retirement village’s other

residents were able to get a close

up look at the classic race car.

No fibre internet

for settlements

FIBRE BROADBAND will

not extend to a clutch of Banks

Peninsula settlements despite

a community board bid to get

shovel-ready funding from the

government.

The Peninsula board’s pitch

was rejected on the basis it was

not considered cost effective

given the sparsely populated terrain

of an essentially rural area.

Knocking-back the plan,

Broadcasting, Communications

and Digital Media Minister Chris

Faafoi said most peninsula communities

will have broadband in

2023.

It will be provided by the rural

broadband initiative, which use

cellular and wireless technologies

to get to remote locations, he told

the board.

“Based on these network

deployments, it is estimated that

once the programme has been

completed, approximately 98

per cent of people living on the

peninsula will have broadband

available to them.”

The board wanted a “shovel

ready” initiative to get fibre

broadband to Lyttelton West

to Charteris Bay, Okains Bay,

Pigeon Bay, Le Bons Bay and

Birdlings Flat.

The settlements are the most

populous on the peninsula with

no planned fibre rollout.

The plan would “inject jobs

into the local economy, aiding

recovery from Covid-19,” board

chairwoman Tori Peden said in a

letter to the minister.

On behalf of her board, she

said it was unacceptable communities

in the greater Christchurch

area did not have mobile

networks or access to reliable, fast

broadband.

It was “critical our communities

have access to the broadband

infrastructure required to stay

reliably connected with each

other and key services.”

Many people in the far-flung

communities continued to need

broadband for work, remote

learning and socialising during

the Covid-19 pandemic.

The peninsula was periodically

isolated during natural disasters,

so there was a pressing need

and ongoing need to improve

broadband, the minister was told.

Faafoi told the board has

asked officials to explore how

connectivity gaps can be

addressed.

The Linwood-Central-

Board’s priorities plan for

Cold water fundraiser buys lifesaving equipment

SUMNER AND Taylors

Mistakes Surf Lifesaving Clubs

will enter summer with new

lifesaving equipment thanks to a

group of cold water swimmers.

The Scarborough Dippers

plunged into the wintery ocean at

7am every morning during July

and in the process raised $5800

to be divided between the two

clubs.

The money will go toward

equipment such as rescue tubes,

binoculars and training boards

for junior surf lifesavers.

It was the fourth year the Scarborough

Dippers held the Wet

July challenge.

Group founder Kerry Newton

said two of the dippers are active

members of the surf clubs. Surf

lifesavers play a vital role in protecting

the public over summer.

“As a group we all love the sea,

but know how dangerous it can

be. Having the skills and knowledge

of the surf lifesavers on our

beaches means will can all enjoy

the water safely.”

Wayne Simmons, from the

Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club,

said Covid-19 restrictions had

affected other funding.

“This year has been a tough

one for the clubs, so funding

generated from an initiative such

as Wet July has meant we can

invest in the equipment needed

to keep our local beaches safe,”

Mr Simmons said.

Local talent on show at art exhibition

APPEAL: Mt Pleasant School’s

art fundraiser will showcase

more than 40 local artists. ​

• By Bea Gooding

MT PLEASANT School’s

biggest annual fundraiser will

feature more than 40 local

artists.

The Mt Pleasant Memorial

and Community Centre will

next week become an art gallery

and home to more than 500

pieces of art.

The art will be sold and profits

will go to projects at the school.

It last year helped the

construction and completion

of a new library, which is

among other site developments

following the earthquakes.

Event organiser Julia Metcalfe

said the focus of this year’s appeal

was keeping kids active

through sport.

The school had a decade

without a hall. It was rebuilding

a new one so needed additional

funding to help buy new sports

equipment.

Event organisers initially

struggled to get the event

over the line due to public gathering

restrictions caused

by Covid-19.

They were determined to see

it happen, even if postponement

was the answer.

“It has been a real struggle.

Too much work goes into it,

so it won’t be cancelled – just

postponed.”

The exhibition starts

with a gala evening next

Friday, including live art

auctions,

and will run in conjunction

with the Mt Pleasant Farmers

Market the following day.

Christchurch artist Harriet

Millar is the exhibition’s featured

artist.

Entry is by gold coin donation.

The gala evening is a ticketed

event.

Sept 4, 2010 – A Decade On

Defiant locals gathered after quake

• By Chris Barclay

THE VALLEY Inn regulars

reacted to the September 4,

2010, earthquake with a show of

defiance that left an insurance

assessor dismayed, and publican

Dean Calvert unfazed.

Hours after Tour of Duty

played in the long-standing

Heathcote bar, the locals

soldiered on, with one final

session in the severely damaged

triangular-shaped watering hole.

Calvert was on the scene

shortly after the quake struck at

4.35am and by daybreak locals

had already assembled amid the

wreckage.

“We were sitting around the

well having a beer, the whole

time locals were coming and

going, it was strange times,”

Calvert remembered.

“The insurance guy came

down and goes: ‘What are you

doing? You need these people out

of here’.

“I told him they’re having

their last beer in the pub. This is

part of their lounge for all these

people. We’re not going to be

reopening are we?”

But Calvert, who took over the

lease the day his parents George

and Janet bought the building in

2004, pessimism was eventually

misplaced.

The family never wavered

about building a new Valley

Inn, and had the February 22,

2011, earthquake not intervened

Calvert says they could have

reopened a year to the day the

original “fell over”.

“We would have been on top

of it but we had to recheck the

ground (after February).

“We didn’t start building until

Award winning company, trusted in Canterbury for 37 years

May but the local tradies all offered

to work. It was all hands on

deck just to get the pub back.”

Then mayor of Christchurch

Bob Parker reopened the bar

23 days after the quake’s first

anniversary, with the brick-lined

well the only remnants from the

original built in 1877.

While the Valley Inn was

quickly re-established, Calvert

laments the same cannot be said

for the central city.

“I don’t know how it’s taken

so long. You look at Japan when

they had that tsunami and earthquake,”

he said.

“They were probably rebuilt in

two or three years at the most.

And we’re still arguing with

bloody politics and bits and

pieces.

“Everyone’s p****d around too

much organising stuff which

they can’t organise.

“We were lucky. The earthquake

happened on the 4th of

September and the bulldozer

went through on the 10th.

“We were lucky we got on to it

so quickly. Looking at some of

the sites around town it’s a bit of

shame that people haven’t organised

things a bit better.”

Calvert received the permit to

rebuild the day before the February

22, 2011, earthquake and

never had any second thoughts

in the following days.

“It was like a meeting place for

the locals, it needed to be rebuilt.

The local church did a BYO pub

on Fridays for a while. They

knew the Valley was a meeting

place for Heathcote.

“Everyone used to go there and

talk to their mates, some had

been there 50 years.”

Funding available for community groups

From the board

Tori Peden, chair

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū/Banks Peninsula

Community Board

ONE OF my favourite tasks on

the community board, is giving

out funding to community

groups that are doing amazing

things on, and around Banks

Peninsula.

We have just agreed to grant

around $160,000 from our

Strengthening Community

Fund.

This is for a wide range of expenses

and projects, a lot was to

help cover operational expenses

and wages (mostly part-time),

but other projects include water

safety, youth and pre-school

projects, as well as supporting

neighbourhood watch, the

installation of community notice

boards, community newsletters

and volunteer recognition events.

We have also just found out

that there will be further $20,000

for our community as part of

the council’s extra $500,000 for

community funding. We will

find out soon what criteria will

be for this funding, either way

it is more money for our community.

I have been involved with

many community groups over

the years as a volunteer, or committee

member, and I know firsthand

how community funding

helps support the groups do what

they do along with thousands of

hours of volunteer time that goes

into these projects.

At the local body elections

last year, we heard how one of

the candidates was going to cut

community funding, I was truly

upset. How good do you feel

when you have just been to your

neighbourhood barbecue? The

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.

other day, and we all said how

great it was to catch up with

each other, rather than just a

wave or a two-minute chat in the

street.

One of our neighbours is

doing renovations, another is

looking for another horse, and

they all asked how I was doing

post-surgery. We do not live in

each other’s pockets, but we do

look out for each other. We keep

an eye on properties while the

owners are away, and we all tend

to recognise when a certain dog

plays a Houdini and is out on the

road again visiting the neighbourhood.

Community funding helps

with more than just a few

sausages, it in many ways helps

us be part of a richer community.

On that note, this is a huge

shout-out to all those that

volunteer in our community.

For the volunteers the help with

washing the dishes at the local

rugby club, with pest control,

with planting days, those that

help run the committees, and

everything in-between, these

are all important roles in the

community and are very often

unnoticed. I/we see you and

thank you, without those small

acts our community would not

be the place we all love to be part

of.

THE SILVER-EYE/tauhou, also

known as the wax-eye, is a tiny

olive green bird, only weighing a

mere 10gm and it has a white ring

around its eye.

It may be small but what an

amazing flyer, having flown from

Australia to New Zealand during

the mid-80s. It is now one of our

most abundant bird species and

found anywhere from our coastal

wetlands to the foothills of the alps.

Because it found its way here

by itself, it is classified as a native

bird. The male and female look

exactly alike and are one of the

most common bird species you

will attract if you have a bird

feeder in your garden.

They are most likely to look for

feeders during the winter season

when the birds flock together

looking for food. If you place

lard and fruit in them you are

very likely to have them hanging

around for a few weeks.

During the 1990s ornithologists

banded the silver-eye in Dunedin

and that way learned the distances

they will fly to find a food

supply as birds were discovered

several weeks later as far south

as Invercargill and as far north as

the Banks Peninsula.

Any other season they will find

food easily as they eat anything

from aphids, grass seeds, spiders,

caterpillars, fruit, berries, nectar

and seeds making the silver-eye

an important seed distributor of

the kowhai, kahikatea and native

fuchsia.

These friendly little birds are the

architects of beautiful cup shaped

nests filled with spiderweb, thistledown,

moss and lichen making for

soft and warm homes for up to five

chicks at the time and pairs will

raise several clutches during spring

and summer.

If it was not for the fact that it

only lives for three to four years

our skies would be filled with

silver-eyes so shows once again,

how nature manages to balance

out the populations of each

species.

We’ve got your

next step sorted.

Take the next step with one of Hagley’s tertiary

pathway programmes or specialist courses.

From Engineering and Sport Management to Cooking, Fashion,

Pre-Health and Early Childhood, Hagley has a range of courses

Recognition for work with families

• By Bea Gooding

JAN NOTTINGHAM’S passion

for supporting families of

young patients seeking medical

treatment in Christchurch has

been recognised.

The Ronald McDonald House

night supervisor has been

named as a finalist for the Westfield’s

Local Heroes awards.

Each year, Westfield centres

across the country recognise

nominated role models for the

positive benefit their work has

on the community.

“It felt very humbling to have

the privilege of being one of the

finalists,” said Nottingham.

“It’s not even a job for me,

I’m doing something I love –

making a difference to families

coming through the door and

taking some of the weight off

their shoulders.”

Nottingham lives at the RMH

full-time working night shifts,

making sure families felt at

home while staying at the house,

going above and beyond in doing

so.

Whether it was offering a

shoulder to cry on, providing

entertainment for children or

making sure guests had meals to

come back to after visiting their

child in hospital, she has been

a guaranteed source of comfort

since taking up the role in 2012.

Landing the job as a night

supervisor was a silver lining

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake destroyed her home.

“I was one of many. I’m lucky

that mine has been all sorted as

lots of people are still struggling

with theirs long after the earthquakes,”

she said.

“My home-based business no

longer happened, but in hindsight,

Wine

Delightful drops

from a hot season

• By Mark Henderson

THE MAJORITY of

Central pinot noirs on the

shelves at the moment are

from the 2018 vintage.

This was an exceptionally

hot season from December

through until the beginning

of March, when cooler,

rainy conditions helped

moderate the effects of

the summer. It tested the

mettle of the wineries, yet

while most of the 2018

wines will not be extremely

long lived, they do offer

delightful drinking now.

Alongside those here today,

a slew of late releases, and a

comparative young ’un.

2018 Valli Waitaki

Vineyard Pinot Noir

Price: $69

Rating: Excellent

Fragrant notes of

wild herbs with cooler

strawberry and darker

fruits mingling. Sweet

cherry and spicy oak frame

the palate, adding a touch

of

lead pencil, showing

good structure in the

background. There’s

generosity of fruit here,

a sweetly fruited element

building and good length.

This has drinkability off the

bat but potential too.

2018 Rockburn

Central Otago Pinot

Noir

Price: $49.99

Rating: Excellent to

Darker fruited expression

offering mint/menthol, oak

spices and savoury nuances.

A depth of flavour that fills

the mouth, supported by

fine-grained tannins, as the

sweet fruit mingles with

wild herbs and savoury

notes. Lovely texture, nice

balance and integration

gives this immediate

drinkability.

Subtlety and elegance

rule, darker fruited, sawn

timber, spices, violets,

growing in the glass with

sweet fruits building.

Wonderful intensity

and depth of flavour to the

dry, dusty palate and while

approachable now, the

powerful tannic structure is

built for the future.

Ripe but not sweet, the

fruit hangs in the mouth on

the long, dry close. Superb

potential.

Talc and potpourri lead,

savoury touches and warm

leather.

Flirting with sweet ‘n’

sour nuances, oak noticeable,

at first.

This grows enormously,

an Italianate tanginess

bringing delightful freshness.

hints of secondary

Deceptive intensity

here, real power aligned

with silkiness, while red

currant/red fruits meld

with lavender, leather and

savoury nuances as the

wine builds to a long, dry

finish. Suggestive of some

bottle age; in a lovely now.

2017 Te Kano Kin

Pinot Noir

Price: $29

Rating: Excellent

Subtle nose at first, yet

a suggestion of volume as

the cherry, mixed berry

and herb notes swell. Firm

at first, but quickly fleshes

out, developing lovely

flavour intensity as savoury

nuances add to the interest.

Stylish, good freshness

and well judged structural

backbone make this lovely

drinking now. Nicely done

and good bang for buck.

then refresh in cold water. Peel

the skins and slice into 1cm

rounds.

Halve vanilla pod and scrape

seeds into a saucepan. Add pod,

sugar, water and honey. Stir over

Choice of bright colours for Mirage

I’VE ALWAYS dismissed it, but

now I fear I’m colour blind.

The reason being is that when

I picked up a new Mitsubishi

Mirage from the dealership, I

asked the very friendly salesman:

“Is it the brown car out the

front?’’

He replied by saying it wasn’t

brown, but yellow, and we got

into a debate. We finished by

agreeing it was a mustard colour

and, as such, it is very unusual

and difficult to describe. It is the

colour in the photograph that accompanies

this article, it is vivid

and not a colour you often see on

today’s roads.

However, I’ve been assured it

is a popular choice and, as in my

case, a colour which draws interest

and discussion.

The new colour coincides with

a new exterior design for the Mirage.

The new generation model

is sharper, less rounded, it is edgy

and bold up front. There’s also

a new interior package, there’s a

lot more kit in the car, especially

for safety, while the controls and

functions have been further

designed for ease of use and simplicity.

Even though the Mirage is

built in Thailand, it encompasses

the easy-to-use Japanese design

philosophy.

Inside the compact body shell,

the wee Mirage makes good use

of its proportions. It’s a bit a of a

squeeze in the rear for any more

than two occupants, but there is

appropriate leg and head room,

likewise up front. The driver sits

a little high in the seat, but other

than that the driving position is

comfortable. For those who are

less than agile, getting in and

out of the driver’s seat is a breeze

because of its height, there’s no

stress put on the hips.

Elsewhere, the Mirage sits

on much the same platform

as before, although as I’ve just

alluded to, there are upgrades

throughout which further

enhances its five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

Under the rear hatchback area

lies a 235-litre load area, extending

to 912-litres with the rear

seats folded. That translates into a

useful load carrying area, it easily

accounted for a Kiddie-family

load of groceries from Pak’N

Save.

At the other end sits a 1.2-litre,

three-cylinder, twin-camshaft,

12-valve petrol engine. It has

modest power outputs of 58kW

and 102Nm, but the Mirage is

light at 895kg so the engine creates

useful, adequate and thrifty

performance.

Mitsubishi has been busy

refining this engine. There’s no

CAPABLE: The Mirage’s load carrying area can house a

family load of groceries.

MITSUBISHI MIRAGE: Honest three-cylinder engine has great fuel economy.

denying the characteristic tone

that accompanies the three-pot

design, but it’s not overbearing

and I quite like the honest, deliberate

way in which it sounds.

Drive is through continuously

variable transmission. There are

no surprises here and no driveractivated

controls. What you get

is a simple system that works

well. CVT doesn’t load the engine

which allows it to work within

its own freedom parameters, it

never feels low on revs, pick-up

is always delivered at the driver’s

will.

The Mirage is no powerhouse

and acceleration fits within its

design concept, it will make a

standstill to 100km/h in 13sec.

However, what does matter the

most is what the Mirage achieves

in terms on fuel usage, Mitsubishi

claims a five-litre per 100km

combined cycle average. During

my time in the test car I did a

lot of inner-city commuting and

short low speed journeys, even

so, the fuel usage readout was

listing an average of 6l/100km

when I took the car back to the

dealership.

That included my long open

road journey which offered an

amazing 3.4l/100km instantaneous

figure at 100km/h, the engine

• Price – Mitsubishi Mirage,

$21,990

• Dimensions – Length,

3845mm; width, 1665mm;

height, 1510mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1193cc, 58kW,

102Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 13sec

• Fuel usage – 5l/100km

spinning over freely at 2000rpm.

Three-cylinder engines are

generally strong on torque and

it responds well to mid-range

throttle request, an overtaking

manoeuvre (80-120km/h)

can be achieved in 9sec. With

the freedom of CVT the engine

builds revs and initiates momentum

quickly, well akin to its role

anyway.

The Mirage also feels light from

behind the wheel, the electric

power steering system doesn’t

afford a lot of feedback, but the

tyres (175/55 x 15in Bridgestone

Potenza) are of high quality and

have high grip levels.

When pushed into a corner the

Mirage leans a little, the spring

and damper rates are set soft,

while that affords a comfortable

ride, there is a little handling

trade-off. The front-strut/rear

torsion beam suspension isn’t engineered

for quick cornering, but

it is in keeping with the role the

Mirage is expected to play. In the

urban environment it is comfortable

and practical.

It is also the perfect city runabout

with vision and manoeuvrability

well manufactured into the

car. Take, for example, its turning

circle of just 9.2m.

The Mirage arrives here in one

specification at $21,990, although

recent advertising material

suggests you can pick it up for

less than $20k. It sits in a pretty

crowded small car market, but it

wins with its personality and high

levels of trim.

I like it for its build quality

and engineering aspects which

are just so downright honest,

bearing in mind that Mitsubishi

has a 10-year/160,000km

driveline warranty and a fiveyear/130,000km

vehicle warranty

incorporated into every Mirage

purchase.

As for the colour, I’d be

choosing something that I could

define accurately, if that is at all

possible.

designed residence that showcases a unique

point of difference and is being sold on an

'as is, where is' basis.

Constructed in 1984 and designed by

architect Robin Vesty, this exceptional abode

Heart Rimu joinery plays a prominent

the presence of an expansive billiard room

and accompanying bar highlights just a

couple of the noteworthy features which can

be found within the floor plan.

A multitude of entertaining areas inhabit

the 540sqm home including both a formal

and casual dining zone, while the socially

situated kitchen features a breakfast bar and

a servery window that conveniently links to

the outdoors.
