Pole stops crashed car

from falling into houses

• By Matt Slaughter

A MOTORIST can thank his

lucky stars for a round metal pole.

That was all that saved

him from an 80m drop onto

houses and a beach below after

he crashed at Charteris Bay last

week.

His Toyota RAV4 sport utility

vehicle was left

teetering on the

edge of a cliff,

with him in

it, on Marine

Drive, between

James Drive and

Franco

Lovrich

Black Rock Rd

about 10am last

Wednesday.

The crash also

damaged a device believed to be a

chairlift used to access a property

below the cliff.

Sergeant Franco Lovrich said

the man will appear in the district

court at a later date on “a number

of charges” relating to his “manner

of driving’’ and “ability to

drive safely.”

“He was definitely under the

influence of something.”

Lovrich said a passer-by

was first on the scene and helped

the man get out of the vehicle.

Drink driving: How the numbers

stack up in Banks Peninsula

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE CHARGED 88 people

with drink driving offences in

Banks Peninsula between 2017

and 2019.

An Official Information Act

request by Bay Harbour News

has revealed out of eight areas in

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula,

the Sumner and Lyttelton

police stations coverage areas

sit sixth and seventh on the list

of areas where the most people

have been charged for being over

the legal breath and blood alcohol

limits in this time period.

Christchurch central is first

on this list, with officers there

charging 1993 drivers with such

offences, followed by Papanui

with 915 and south Christchurch

with 675.

these statistics are promising but

any drink driving at all is too

much.

“Over time we’ve seen a drop,

which is great, but it comes

back to the fact that any drink

driving is one too many and the

potential for serious harm for

other road users is unacceptable.

We have a no-tolerance policy

for alcohol and one is one too

many.”

Meanwhile, in July a police

clamp-down on drink driving

saw them stop and breath test

14,042 Canterbury motorists.

Of these, 68 were over the legal

breath alcohol limit.

They trialled micro-checkpoints

as part of this, which

require as few as one police car

and officer to set up and carry

out the checks.

Houses

below cliff

evacuated

• From page 1

The vehicle was “precariously

perched on a pole,” which was the

only thing that saved it

from going over the cliff, said

Lovrich.

The crash prompted fears the

four-wheel-drive vehicle could

fall onto the properties below.

A fire crew from the nearby Diamond

Harbour station worked

to stabilise the vehicle and secure

it to the cliff face.

Along with this crew, three police

cars and a St John ambulance

attended.

Ambulance staff treated the

driver at the scene.

He walked away after receiving

treatment and was placed in a

police car.

Several houses below the cliff

were evacuated as a precaution

while the vehicle was removed

about two hours after the crash

and Marine Drive was closed.

How the man crashed was being

investigated, said Lovrich.

A Fire and Emergency NZ

spokesman at the scene said it

appeared the four-wheel-drive

had been driven off the road and

no other vehicles were involved.

Social distancing underpins Sumner challenge

SOCIAL distancing rules and

the vagaries of the season made

the Brad Richards Building

Sea2Sky Challenge even more

memorable.

Based at Scarborough Park,

the event was held on Sunday

after the Covid-19 lockdown

forced its postponement in

March.

It is traditionally a triathlon

but the swim leg was cancelled

because of the time of the year,

organiser John Newsom explained.

The challenge was broken into

a series of events with groups of

75 athletes in each zone.

Athletes arrived at separate, set

times and groups stayed within

fenced off areas until being

called to the start line.

It was a “socially distanced

start line” comprised of groups

of 10-15 athletes. They had to

leave the race site as soon as they

could after their race.

Athletes were only allowed to

use portaloos in their zone, and

volunteers could interact only

with athletes in their designated

zone, Newsom said.

The measures, approved by

the city council, Triathlon New

Zealand and Sport New Zealand,

were designed for the Covid-19

alert level guidelines, Newsom

said.

The winner of the men’s race

was Mt Pleasant-based Mike

Phillips, a professional ironman

who won Ironman New Zealand

in 2019 when he broke the run

course record.

His time was 1hr 18min, less

than a minute ahead of Flavio

Vianna and Sola Kuwasaki. Julia

Tully won the female race, ahead

of Annabel Ramsay and Nicole

Wilson.

The 17km run only option was

a new addition to a list that also

included a Junior Challenge and

a Kids (5-9) Challenge.

The Sea2Sky Challenge will be

held on March 14, 2021.

Ottolenghi FLAVOUR

by yotam ottolenghi and ixta Belfrage

Flavour-forward, vegetable-based recipes are at the heart of Yotam Ottolenghi’s food.

Up River

of places that were encountered, it tells the story of the author’s journeys to the

principal sources of each of the 24 rivers that flow down to the sea from the

Main Divide of the Southern Alps. Each of the 24 chapters in this book paints a

full-length portrait of the water catchment areas of the 24 rivers that flow all the

way down to the sea from the Main Divide of the Southern Alps, including its

highest peaks and lowest Main Divide passes.

Jerusalem: The Biography

by simon sebag Montefiore

Jerusalem is the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three

faiths; it is the prize of empires, the site of Judgement Day and the battlefield of

today’s clash of civilizations. From King David to Barack Obama, from the birth

of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to the Israel–Palestine conflict, this is the epic

history of 3,000 years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism and coexistence.

Drawing on new archives, current scholarship, his own family papers and a

lifetime’s study, Montefiore illuminates the essence of sanctity and mysticism,

identity and empire in a unique chronicle of the city that is believed will be the

setting for the Apocalypse. This is how Jerusalem became Jerusalem, and the

only city that exists twice – in heaven and on earth.

Digital needs increasing in communities

• By Bea Gooding

A SCHEME to provide

computers to community

organisations in need across the

city has proven popular, with

digital needs increasing due to

Covid-19.

The city council’s Computers

to the Community Scheme

offers computers for free to notfor-profit

groups to help them

deliver services more efficiently.

Excluding the lockdown,

between July 2019 and June this

year, 220 laptops and desktops

were distributed to organisations,

including the Diamond

Harbour Community Association

and the City to Sumner

Community Patrol.

The Lyttelton Harbour Information

Centre is staffed by volunteers

who promote Lyttelton’s

local services and activities and

received two laptops from the

scheme to help speed up productivity

and to make brochures.

Said manager Ruth Targus:

“It’s saved us an absolute fortune,

we couldn’t have afforded them.

We would’ve had to fundraise

otherwise.

“With cruise ships coming in,

we’re having to offer customers

with more tours, therefore we’re

selling more and needed a laptop

with a better system.

HELP: Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre manager Ruth Targus, with one of the new

laptops they received from the city council to help operations run smoothly.

“It’s meant a lot less time

writing notes from meetings, it’s

portable and it’s made things a

lot more professional.”

In the past few months, the

city council noted an increase in

requests from groups working

with multi-cultural communities

and have allocated about

50 computers to organisations

with a variety of cultural backgrounds.

City council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell said the

cost associated with purchasing

the technology was often a barrier.

Said Filsell: “Covid-19

highlighted the need and use of

technology to feel connected, to

keep in touch with friends and

family both overseas and within

New Zealand to get information,

continuing education and

support the ability to continue

to work.

“Some groups have made the

computers available to those

who do not have them, or used

them to provide information and

support to their communities

by building up an electronic

network.

Meeting demand was not a

major issue but at times the city

council experienced a higher demand

which meant some groups

had to wait longer to receive

their computers.

Positive feedback from groups

so far highlighted the impact of

having the donated technology

for productivity, as funding often

lies with wages or rent.

“At times we have a higher

demand than others. In these

cases, we do have a waiting list

until such a time as we can get

their needs met,” said Filsell.

“If groups are looking to

expand their supports or are

just starting out and need

technology, then the council’s

computers are a good start.”

Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee

Kaitiakitanga key for community project

More than 30 community members helped plant 400 trees along the Okuti

River, in Little River, to preserve aquatic life, encourage more habitat for

native birds, and protect the river margin.

The river is extremely rich in biodiversity, with fish species including tuna/

eel and kanakana/lamprey, and an impressive array of freshwater insects.

Many of these species are unique to Banks Peninsula and aren’t found

anywhere else in the world.

The planting day was organised by the Okuti River Project, a community-led

initiative which aims to raise awareness of the value of the river, and the

importance of kaitiakitanga/guardianship to sustaining life in it.

The project receives $10,000 each year from Environment Canterbury’s

Immediate Steps Biodiversity (IMS) fund until 2022, following a

recommendation from the Banks Peninsula Water Zone

Committee in 2018. The Christchurch City Council funded

fencing for the area and helped prepare it for planting.

For more information on the project, or its future community

events,go to www.littleriver.org.nz.

If you would like to know more about IMS funding, or other ways

to protect biodiversity on your land or in your community

Solving congestion conundrum

A strategy is under way

to prevent Canterbury

roads becoming

congested like

Auckland’s. Louis Day

reports

THE GREATER Christchurch

Partnership’s mode shift plan,

a collaboration from councils

across the region, states that if

current travel patterns continue

unchanged and the population

grows as expected, cars travelling

in and out of the city could

increase by 34 per cent by 2048.

With already 87 per cent of

household trips across Greater

Christchurch being made in

single-occupant vehicles, this

would likely lead to a significant

increase in congestion as well as

emissions.

“Action is needed now,” the

report says.

“This action must be sustained

over the longer term, to avoid

Greater Christchurch following

in the footsteps of other major

centres, where investment in mode

shift has only occurred once congestion

reached crisis point.”

‘Mode shift” involves moving

people away from single-occupancy

vehicle use to alternative forms

of transport such as public transport,

ridesharing and active modes

such as walking and cycling.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel agreed

action was needed now.

“I look at Auckland and I

look at essentially gridlock and

we know that if Auckland is

gridlocked the price if paid by the

The Greater Christchurch

Partnership is a

group comprising the

Christchurch City Council,

Environment Canterbury,

Selwyn District Council,

Waimakariri District

Council, Ngai Tahu,

New Zealand Transport

Agency, Canterbury

District Health Board,

the Greater Christchurch

Group and Regenerate

Christchurch.

whole country,” she said.

“We have an opportunity to get

ahead of the gridlock and actually

make good decisions now

that will assist us in the future.”

The mode shift plan outlines

short term priorities to encourage

people to pursue alternative

forms of transport. This includes

spending $68 million on filling

in “critical gaps” in the cycleway

network, $10 million on public

transport service improvements

and up to $3 million on encouraging

behaviour change.

NZTA director of regional

relationships Jim Harland said

the next step was to figure out

whether the money to fund the

project could come out of existing

transport budgets or have to

be pursued elsewhere.

This will not be the end of

investment in this area, the plan

states for the objectives of the

plan to be delivered it will require

significant ongoing investment.

Greater Christchurch’s proliferating

population puts emphasis

on the need to alter travel habits

to prevent future congestion.

Its population is expected to

increase from the 428,000 it was

in 2013 to 640,000 in 2048.

This combined with private

vehicle centred travel habits

only adds to the urgency. Single

occupancy vehicle use remains

high at 87 per cent while public

transport use has remained

stagnant since the earthquakes at

about 2.5 per cent of peak hour

travel.

This equates to 13.5 million

passenger trips a year.

Patronage peaked at 17.2

million trips per year in

2010, but levels dropped

by more than 40 per cent

immediately after the

earthquakes.

Meanwhile, the plan

outlines that cycling

investment has resulted

in “significant” increases in

cycling numbers. The city council

recorded 2234 cycle trips during

a morning peak count in March,

a decent increase from the 1869

recorded during a morning peak

period last year.

This is an increase of nearly 20

per cent, and follows a pattern of

yearly increases since the council

began building a network of

major cycle routes around the

city.

The gender breakdown shows

that 59 per cent of cyclists

counted this year were men and

41 per cent were women. This is

a significant increase from the

Axel Wilke

32 per cent of women cyclists

counted in 2016.

The growing number of

female cyclists was seen as

a positive trend because

international experience shows

women particularly are unlikely

to get on their bikes if they feel

unsafe.

Transport specialist

Axel Wilke said if

Greater Christchurch

continued on the route it

is currently on it would

end up like Auckland.

“When you talk about

mode shift you have to

stop building big roads

beause it achieves the opposite,”

he said.

Wilke said reducing the

amount of cars on the road

was also imperative in meeting

carbon emission goals.

The city council is aiming

to of halve Christchurch’s gas

emissions by 2030 and reach net

zero emissions by 2045.

An investigation into

Christchurch’s greenhouse gas

emissions found the city emitted

far more gas than it offsets.

In 2016/17 the city emitted

an estimated 2,485,335 gross

tonnes of carbon dioxide which

is the equivalent of 6.6 tonnes

BY THE NUMBERS:

• Statistics show 87 per cent of

household trips across Greater

Christchurch are being made in

single-occupant vehicles

• The public transport network

currently accounts for 2.5 per

cent of peak hour travel demand

in Greater Christchurch, which

equates for 13.5 million passenger

trips per year.

• Bus patronage peaked at

17.2 million trips per year

in 2010, but patronage levels

dropped by more than 40 per

cent post-earthquake.

• Cycling counts from seven

locations across the central city

during the morning peak has

increased from 1251 in 2016 to

2234 in 2020.

• The proportion of women

cycling has increased from 31

per cent in 2016 to 41 per cent in

2020.

• The greater Christchurch

population is expected to

increase from the 428,000 it was

in 2013 to 640,000 in 2048.

• In 2016/17 Christchurch

emitted an estimated 2,485,335

gross tonnes of carbon dioxide

equivalent.

• Transportation was the

largest contributor to emissions

at 53 per cent, followed by

stationary energy at 22 per

cent, agriculture at 10.5 per

cent, waste at 9 per cent,

and industrial processes and

product use at 4.7 per cent.

per person. While that is lower

than Auckland (7.9 tonnes per

person) and Dunedin (11 tonnes

per person), it is more than

Wellington (5.7 tonnes).

Transport was also

Christchurch’s largest

contributor to emissions at 53

per cent, followed by stationary

energy at 22 per cent, agriculture

at 10.5 per cent, waste at nine per

cent

and industrial processes at 4.7

per cent.

No time frame to

finish work at cemetery

THERE SEEMS no

guarantee a memorial

entrance will be installed

at a cemetery and a

settlers’ headstones will be

restored before anniversary

celebrations in Akaroa.

Events marking the

180th anniversary of

organised European

settlement are slated for

March. The Covid-19

lockdown scuttled plans to

mark the anniversary this

year.

The Comte de Paris

Descendants Group and

the Akaroa Cemeteries

Group hoped work

restoring two historically

significant headstones

would continue

ahead of next year’s

commemorations.

The descendants group

also hoped to get the goahead

to install a memorial

entrance at the Catholic

cemetery.

The headstones were

among those identified

as needing restoration

after the Canterbury

earthquakes. The gate

was sought for the 175th

anniversary.

City council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge

confirmed the council

knew what the group

wanted achieved ahead of

the commemorations.

Headstone repair funds

were frozen in the wake of

the pandemic but another

budget would be used to

complete repairs in the

Catholic cemetery. That

work continued.

A draft conservation

plan would inform the

resource consent needed to

install the memorial gate

at the Catholic cemetery.

It was due this month, he

confirmed.

“At this stage we do not

have a fixed time frame,

but are very aware of the

group’s wishes and are

and graves in Akaroa.

working hard to meet their

needs,” he said.

Elected members have

had meetings with the

group where requirements

and time frames have been

discussed, he said in a

statement.

When contacted,

descendants group

spokeswoman Linda

Sunderland was

disappointed the council

could not commit to

getting the work done by

March.

After a decade of missed

deadlines and broken

promises, the group

was not confident in the

council’s ability to help

deliver the entrance, or the

headstones, in time.

The headstones were

on a list prepared soon

after the September 2010

earthquake. The council

originally offered to make

fixing them a pilot project,

she said.

The list shrunk as

council budgets and work

plans changed. None

had been fixed before the

group asked for at least two

to be completed for the

anniversary.

The group asked for

help with the memorial

entrance before the 2015

anniversary. Council staff

offered to help with the

consents and plans were

provided, she said.

The group provided

updated plans about

18 months ago. It was

disappointing there was

now no fixed time frame to

get the consent sorted, she

said.

The group had not asked

for funding. That would

come from the group and

Heritage NZ, she said.

“We have met their

requirements plus a lot

of voluntary labour and

information has been

handed over. The council

have consistently not met

their promises.”

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said the council

was “working with them

to achieve their vision for

the headstones and the

memorial gates in the best

way we can and as quickly

as we can.”

Jane Potts

Covid hero’s passion for medicine

Jane Potts was

recognised as a ‘Covid

hero’ for her work

volunteering as a St

John ambulance officer

during the lockdown.

The former Redcliffs

woman speaks to

Devon Bolger about

her commitment to

the job and passion for

medicine

When did you start

volunteering for St John?

It would have been about

eight years ago now. We moved

[from the city] out to Selwyn

after the earthquake and I

started about six months to a

year after that.

Was your house badly

damaged in the earthquake?

Yes, we weren’t allowed to

go back to our house it was

so badly damaged. We were

in Redcliffs at the time. The

garage collapsed down on to the

house. We just picked the kids

up from school that day and left

Christchurch. We were lucky, we

had a bach at Whitecliffs which

had clothes, food and water so

we lived out there for about a

year and a half.

Do you have a call-out you

attended that is the most

memorable?

There was one incident I

remember where a lady had

a baby in the back of the

ambulance. We had the midwife

with us in the back so there

wasn’t too much to do but it was

a nice job. Some of them are not

very nice as you can imagine.

Everybody was really happy

and the mother and baby were

fine so that was really cool to

experience.

You were nominated for your

GIVE BACK:

Former

Redcliffs

woman Jane

Potts has been

volunteering for

St John Darfield

for eight years

after moving

to the district

following the

earthquake. ​

work during the lockdown,

what was that like?

We were reasonably quiet, I

guess, over lockdown. Most of

the call-outs were for medical

things because people were not

out and about or on the roads

and things like that. When we

did go to someone’s house we

did have to stand quite far away

from them. We had to ask them

all of the Covid-19 questions

before we could get close and

check them over.

I kept a change of clothes at

the station and would have a

shower, take my uniform home

in a separate bag and wash it

as soon as I got home. We also

had to wear gloves and masks.

Driving into town was great

though because there was no

traffic on the road so it was

much quicker. There were a lot

of things we had to do to be safe.

We had to be very conscious of

bringing it back to our houses.

Can you tell me about your

family?

Rob and I have four

children. The oldest is 29 and

the youngest is 24. so they all

don’t live at home anymore.

The oldest is living in London,

I’m not too sure when we will

be able to see her again so that’s

not very nice but she’s coping

okay over there. The next oldest

is a boy who is living down in

Alexander with his partner.

Then we have another boy who

lives in Christchurch and our

youngest is in her last year of

university in Christchurch.

They are all great kids we can’t

complain.

Tasty Bites

Crispy crumbed pork

schnitzel served with

rich mushroom gravy –

that’s Jägerschnitzel. It’s

one of Germany’s most

popular and delicious

foods. This authentic

Jägerschnitzel recipe

will absolutely delight

your taste buds

Authentic German Jägerschnitzel

CRISPY:

Authentic German

Jägerschnitzel

(Hunter schnitzel

with mushroom

gravy).

4 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 cups strong beef broth

1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar (according

to taste)

½ tsp sea salt plus more to taste

½ tsp sugar

¼ tsp dried thyme

¼ tsp freshly ground black

pepper

Optional: For a creamy gravy,

add a few tbsp of heavy cream at

the end

Authentic German

Jägerschnitzel

(Hunter schnitzel with

mushroom gravy)

4 servings

Ingredients

Neutral-tasting oil for frying

4 pieces of pork schnitzel

Salt and freshly ground black

pepper

½ cup all-purpose flour

combined with 1 tsp salt

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

¾ cup plain breadcrumbs

Chopped fresh parsley, garnish

Directions

Lightly sprinkle both sides of

the pork with salt and freshly

ground black pepper.

Place the flour mixture, egg, and

breadcrumbs in three separate

shallow bowls.

Dredge the pork in the flour,

the egg, and the breadcrumbs,

coating both sides and all edges

at each stage. Be careful not to

press the breadcrumbs into the

meat. Gently shake off the excess

crumbs. (Note: Don’t let the

schnitzel sit in the coating or they

will not be as crispy once fried -

fry immediately.)

Heat the oil to 170 deg C (not

hotter or the schnitzel will burn

before the meat is done, not lower

or the schnitzel will absorb the oil

and be greasy). Use just enough

oil so that the schnitzels ‘swim’

in it. Fry the schnitzel for about

2-3min on both sides until a deep

golden brown. Transfer briefly to

a plate lined with paper towels.

Serve immediately topped with

mushroom gravy and garnished

with chopped fresh parsley.

Avoid completely drenching the

schnitzel with gravy so that it still

remains crispy.

Mushroom gravy

Ingredients

2 tbsp butter or lard

1 onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

450gm button mushrooms,

cleaned and sliced

4 tbsp butter

Directions

Melt the butter (or lard) in a

pan over medium-high heat and

fry the onions until beginning to

brown. Add the garlic and cook

another minute.

Add the mushrooms and cook

5-7min or until golden and the

liquid from the mushrooms has

evaporated.

Add the butter and melt. Add

the flour, stir to combine and

cook for about 2min, stirring

continually.

Add the beef broth, vinegar,

thyme, sugar, salt and pepper.

Whisk continuously until

the gravy is thickened. Cover

and simmer on low, stirring

occasionally, for 5-10min. Add

salt and pepper to taste. If you

prefer the gravy thinner add a

little more water (or heavy cream

if using).

Wine

Depth and character

reds produce

increased drinkability

• By Mark Henderson

WINE LOVERS of

a certain age will

remember references to a

characteristic called “Kiwi

green”.

No, I’m not talking about

another mind-altering

substance now under

debate, but a pronounced

green, leafy, capsicum

note that was prevalent

in cabernet-based New

Zealand reds from the 80s

and 90s.

It is derived from a

chemical compound called

methoxypyrazine, which

is also found in sauvignon

blanc.

Discussion during

the tasting centred on

the eradication of this

character, with the

increased drinkability this

has given New Zealand

reds.

REAL ESTATE

Sunsets and Sunshine

266 Major Hornbrook Road, Mount Pleasant

To be sold by auction on 1 Oct

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 2 car garage 2 offstreet parks - Listing Number: SM0375

This substantial executive property, with its

attractive exterior, is a standout amongst

others.

Well positioned off the road, on a 1008sqm

site with flat area for the kids to play, that is

private and protected from the easterlies,

the home offers few clues as to what to expect

once inside.

On entering the dwelling, you will be instantly

impressed by the abundance of

space, light, and the sensational expansive

views. The home is beautifully presented

making it clear that my owners have taken

great pride in maintaining the property to

a high standard during their tenure.

Recently re-clad in Abodo Vulcan timber

and 40mm EPS plaster on 20mm cavity system,

the freshly painted home has a modern

day look and appeal.

The entrance level is mainly dedicated to

living, with two generous interconnecting

living areas. One combining open plan living/

dining/kitchen, with sliding doors to a

sun-soaked balcony. The separate lounge

overlooks the beautifully presented garden

and extends to another outdoor space

where you can sit and soak in the breathtaking

day, night views and stunning sunsets,

overlooking the city, through to the

snow-capped Southern Alps.

Also on this level is an area that could be

utilised as a gym, work from home space or

as a child's play area, plus there is a study,

along with a generous double bedroom

with ensuite.

The functional floor plan focuses on comfort

and busy modern day living, making

the home ideal for families, and those who

love to entertain, host visitors or work from

home. In total there are four double bedrooms,

one with its own living space, two

with their own ensuites, plus a separate

family bathroom.

Whilst benefiting from the frequently

warmer air temperature of Mt Pleasant, the

double glazing and all-day sun, ensure the

home stays warm and cosy.

Add internal garaging, off street parking

and tons of storage for all the modern toys.

For those with green fingers the grounds

will impress and delight and there is still

ample room for the children and pets too.

Family wagon with performance

MERCEDES-BENZ is certainly

covering all bases in the sport

utility vehicle market.

Its product line-up is extensive

and it’s still growing. The

company has just launched a

brand new range of SUVs – the

GLB series.

There are three variants in the

line-up – 200, 250 and 35, all

turbocharged. Put simply the

designations represent a 1.3-litre

variant at 120kW, and two 2-litre

variants at 165kW and 225kW

respectively, the latter essentially

utilise the same power plant but

with greater boost for the 35.

This evaluation surrounds the

250, it is priced at $92,900, the

200 and 35 list at $78,900 and

$104,900 respectively. These

prices are relatively familyfriendly;

sure it’s out of the

mainstream, but if you want

an SUV and are interested in

a premium brand, the GLB is

competitive.

The GLB series is very

traditional in its design, it’s a

seven-seater, albeit compact,

and it carries four-wheel-drive

mechanicals, well at least it does

in 250 and 35 form, the entrylevel

model is front-wheel-drive

only.

Powering the GLB are the

engines which have filtered

through other Mercedes-Benz

product. I’ve experienced the

250 engine many times before

and I have always commented

on its smooth, quiet operation;

it needs to be, there are a raft

of other four-cylinder, 2-litre

turbocharged engines on the

market and they are all refined,

the GLB’s unit is up to par and

lacks nothing, even in low power

form.

The 250 is also rated with

350Nm of torque, which is an

impressive and useful figure,

but if you are interested in more

bottom end grunt the 35 pumps

out an extra 50Nm.

I’d be comfortable with the

250, it’s no slouch when it comes

to performance, Mercedes-Benz

claims a 6.9sec run to 100km/h

and through the mid-range

it fairly hunts through an

overtaking manoeuvre taking just

4.7sec to make 120km/h from

80km/h.

These are good times for a

chunky SUV, the GLB weighs in

at 1721kg, so it’s no lightweight,

which reinforces how versatile and

honest the engine is, and if you

listen carefully you can just pick

that something exciting sits under

the bonnet, there’s a well-muffled

MERCEDES-BENZ GLB250: Sport utility vehicle available in

three levels.

exhaust throb when the engine is

under load.

The engine is also the fuelmiser

that modern turbocharging

techniques provide us with.

A combined cycle average of

7.7-litres per 100km is claimed.

During my time in the test car the

fuel usage readout was constantly

listing around 8.6l/100km with

an instantaneous readout of

6l/100km recorded at 100km/h in

eighth gear.

On the subject of fuel usage,

I must mention the display

graphics make saving fuel easy,

the fonts and colours are easy

to read and understand, and

their constant presence reminds

the driver to take it easy on the

throttle.

That’s part of a comprehensive

display graphic structure, a

wide panel stretches across the

dash area and it contains much

depth in terms of functionality

and detail. There’s also the

voice command system that

is being incorporated into all

Mercedes-Benz product. Say

“Hey Mercedes’’ and with further

prompts many of the operating

systems will be adjusted at your

beck and call.

On the road the GLB rides

beautifully, it doesn’t get air

suspension, but such is the quality

of the underpinnings I had to

keep constantly reminding myself

of that.

I took the test car west through

the Malvern Hills on one of my

favourite high country roads,

returning to the city via Hororata

and Burnham. The GLB is a

fabulous cruiser, it is superbly quiet

and, as mentioned, the suspension

affords a ride that doesn’t tax the

driver on a long journey.

As is traditional fare, the

GLB gets several dynamic drive

modes, I didn’t use either of the

sport modes other than just for

exploratory purposes, the

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

GLB250, $92,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4634mm; width, 1834mm;

height, 1658mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1991cc, 165kW, 350Nm,

eight-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

engine is feisty enough in

normal mode and is easily a

match for the role of a mid-size

SUV, and in true luxury car

fashion the entire driveline reeks

of refinement.

The GLB is also incredibly

well appointed, there’s nothing

you’d want for, and if you take

into account Mercedes-Benz’s

extensive list of options and

extras, then it can be tailormade

to suit each and every individual’s

requirements.

I can’t imagine that

Mercedes-Benz will be developing

another SUV any time soon;

however, I suspect another couple

of models will be added to the

GLB series as time goes on.

Mercedes-Benz is in a good

situation, SUV sales are showing

no signs of slowing, and even

though the market is tough due

to the coronavirus pandemic,

buyers are still looking for the

complete family wagon.

The GLB goes a long way to

address that.

ARTISTS BIOGRAPHY

Harriet was born in Manchester and

brought up in a place called Wirral

(Merseyside) just south of Liverpool.

Drawing and painting for her was

all consuming.

At 18 she left Wirral Art School for a

place at Derby University to study Art

History and Psychology, this was

followed by a Post Graduate Diploma in

Sport Science at John Moore’s University

Liverpool. Then came a move to New

Zealand and five children later, Harriet

decided after her parents died and left

her a few bob (not much) she would love

to spend it on a piece of art work.

After about six months of searching

Harriet wondered if she could actually

make the art she was searching for.

Harriet then invested in a $400 huge

canvas and painted her two youngest

children. This was followed by a painting

of all five children.

After several people asking if Harriet

could do the same for them she

wondered if I was onto something.

Harriet realised that if she was on this

path she needed to train after so many

lost years. Harriet trained at a workshop

in Sydney Australia with her favourite

and hero artist Richard Claremont who

changed everything, he taught Harriet

to paint looser!

Harriet does not regard herself as an

artist, a designer of artwork seems

more accurate. This is because she

does not believe she is technically

brilliant . Harriet does know a good

composition when she sees one. It’s

taken Harriet a lifetime to realise you

don’t have to be Michelangelo, you

need to find your niche, the thing that

works for you. Harriet couldn’t work

with the rules, they don’t work for her,

that’s not to say she does not get the

rules! Harriet never clicked with the

academic side of art (she does

understand it), it’s just not for her.

Harriet paints what she see at that

moment, nothing else matters and

whatever happens, happens. All sense

of time is lost, she does not actually

remember doing the work. Harriet

paints the composition that fits with

the way her mind works. She loves

geometric shapes, reflections of light

and naturally forming patterns.

The New Zealand landscape offers a

perfect opportunity to discover new

shapes and colour tones while

providing the story of people’s lives.

What makes a person buy a particular

piece of work is what interests her,

their story! Whether they were married

in that spot or the flowers remind them

of their mother, it means a lot to Harriet

and she loves hearing about it, it means

you have a connection.
