Baches in

• By Chris Barclay

AS SUMMER approaches, baches

are helping light up a booming

property market as Kiwis seek

bases closer to home rather

than splurge

on overseas

travel amid

the Covid-19

pandemic.

jumped over the last 12 months,

according to figures released by

the Real Estate Institute of New

Ray White New Zealand South

Island regional manager Jane

Meyer said interest in baches was

indicative of the broader market.

“Obviously people have looked

at their money in the bank and

thought ‘it’s not earning me

anything’, mortgages are cheap,

we’re not going overseas and

where are we going to go on our

Sea-level rise in council focus

Mitigating risk

could start in

Lyttelton and

Mt Herbert areas

David Griffiths

THE LYTTELTON, Mt Herbet

area could be prioritised for

work aimed at mitigating the

impacts of sea-level rise on

communities.

The city council wants to

begin adaptation planning work

with communities likely to be

impacted in the future by rising

sea levels.

City councillors will decide

tomorrow

whether

to endorse

the Coastal

Hazards

Adaptation

Planning

programme.

Endorsement

of the

programme

would see

adaptation planning start with

some communities in the Lyttelton,

Mt Herbert area. These

communities have been identified

as a priority for a variety

of reasons that includes their

exposure to coastal hazards.

“While sea level rise will happen

over a longer period of time,

we do need to start planning now

for how we respond to it, and to

the associated coastal hazards

like flooding, erosion and rising

groundwater,” said city council

head of planning and strategic

transport David Griffiths.

Within the next 30 years, the

Ministry for the Environment

predicts that sea levels will rise

by around 370mm and by just

over 1m by 2100. For a low-lying,

coastal city like Christchurch,

this means around 25,000 properties

will be exposed to coastal

flooding and around 1000 properties

will be at risk of coastal

erosion over the next 100 years.

“We’re proposing to follow

the Ministry for the Environment’s

guidance which sets out

a 10-step process for how we can

adapt to the actual and expected

changes from climate change,”

Griffiths said.

“It’s a process that puts community

engagement at the centre

of decision-making. It also gives

levels. ​

us a way to progress things and

make decisions, even when there

is uncertainty about the rate and

effects of climate change.”

In May 2020 a Coastal Hazards

Working Group with representatives

from the city council,

Environment Canterbury and

Ngāi Tahu was established to

provide direction and feedback

on the programme.

City council staff have been

working closely with the working

group to get the programme

to this point.

Work to improve

Dyers Pass Rd

safety to start soon

WORK TO improve the safety of

Dyers Pass Rd will begin shortly.

The city council has awarded

Higgins Construction a contract

to widen the winding road in

places and to install 3km of

guardrail.

“There are guardrails along

about a quarter of the length

of the road at moment but the

road is fairly narrow and cars

and cyclists are competing for

road spaces,” said city council

transport planning and delivery

manager Lynette Ellis.

“The road has a high crash rate

and the steep terrain means that

when crashes do happen, they

often result in severe injuries.

“This safety upgrade will result

in a slightly wider road crosssection

and new guardrails will

be installed in high-risk locations,

which should reduce the severity

of crashes. By the end of the

project there will be guardrails

along almost 70 per cent of the

route.”

The safety improvements are

budgeted to cost about $7.2 million.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency is meeting three-quarters

of the cost as it has included the

project in its safer networks programme.

The work is expected to be

finished in June next year.

'Old school' family campground. Children’s playground, beautiful river, tame

Primary sports director retiring after

Dedicated Primary

sports director Lyn

Miles is poised to blow

the final whistle on her

association with the

role she has occupied

since 1997

• By Chris Barclay

THE FINISH line is in sight for

Lyn Miles, her race is run once

she watches hundreds of kids

circle the athletics track at Nga

Puna Wai one last time.

Miles, the sports director for

Primary Sports Canterbury,

signs off at the organisation’s

athletics championships on December

2, the event marking the

end of a serious leisure pursuit

that started in 1997.

Back then Miles, a former

teacher at Selwyn House School

and development officer for Netball

New Zealand, had six sports

to organise events for – now the

calendar covers 32 disciplines

from your stock-standard rugby

and football to boccia and hiphop

dancing.

Though netball and athletics

are the 72-year-old’s forte, Miles

has had to absorb the rules of

something’s not working quite as

it should be or could be,” she said.

Take slow pitch softball and

touch rugby.

Miles noticed some sly softball

teams were deliberately pitching

out of an opponent’s reach to

limit the amount of runs they’d

concede in a 15min inning,

knowing the scores were tallied

at the end of the game.

“We changed the rule so the

batting team also supplied the

pitcher so the kids can actually

NOW OPEN

get through as fast as they can to

get some runs.”

In touch rugby, girls were

awarded two points for a try, double

the lads, so they weren’t left out.

“We give the girls two points

otherwise the boys just hog the

ball. Now they’re more keen on

giving the girls the chance to

score a try.

“Little things like that might

make a difference when it comes

to primary school kids wanting

to play sport.”

While taking part is obviously

key, Miles is old-school in

a way when asked if winning is

important.

“My views on that are probably

not what they should be. I believe

children do need competition.

They actually like to win,” she

said, adding: “I think it should be

a mixture of winning and trying.

“We do cross-country and it’s

just amazing how many parents

take children all around the

country to compete at primary

school level. A few may keep

doing it at high school but a lot

of them won’t because they’re

pushed so much by their parents.

I don’t believe in that.”

Miles has naturally witnessed

the excesses of overzealous parents

and realises abuse is part of

the game, though behaviour has

improved.

two decades of service

LEGACY: The annual primary schools cross-country event,

one of many organised by Miles over the years.

“We haven’t had a lot of

problems (recently) because the

schools are quite good at dealing

with it now. If it really gets bad

I go to the sports coordinator

and then maybe the principal.

A few years ago we had a school

that banned parents from going

to any of the events. The school

stepped up for us.”

Occasionally the participants

also need a word in their ear,

with Miles happy to lay down the

law.

“If the children are at fault,

we’ll stop a game and tell them

we won’t continue unless they

change. We haven’t had a lot of

that lately, hopefully that’s because

the schools are educating

the children before they get to

events.”

Miles, who became a member

of the New Zealand Order of

Merit in 2010 for services to

netball, nominated the increased

interest in duathlon as a highlight

of her tenure.

“I also enjoy orienteering

because kids that are not excellent

at sport but just want to do

something . . . it gives them the

chance. So does bowls.”

Given she has seen thousands

of kids go through their paces,

there were bound to be a couple

who matured into household

names, Miles remembered a

couple of recognisable internationals.

“I went to Chisnallwood Intermediate

and Ryan Crotty accepted

one of the rugby plaques.

I remember (former Silver Fern)

Anna Stanley (nee Rowberry)

playing netball.”

Templeton-based Miles is

succeeded this week by Michael

Wilson from the Selwyn Sports

Trust, though she will stay on to

ease his transition.

She will continue to umpire

in the Selwyn Netball Centre

competition and groom her successors

in that role as well. Over

summer she plans to officiate

athletics.

Those gigs maintain a life-long

love of sport, but she will still

miss her full-time job.

“I’ll miss the smiles on the

kids’ faces, the interaction with

everybody. It’s so good to go to a

venue like Hagley Park and think

‘well I made this possible’,” she

said.

“What I won’t miss is looking

at the weather every day, and

having to decide whether we

have things on or not.”

Akaroa/Wainui popular

•From page 1

“That’s just building the whole

momentum in the market. It’s

been driven from the first home

buyers right through, this is the

market we’ve found ourselves in.

Covid has kind of created a miniboom,”

she said.

While Akaroa and Wainui were

popular spots in Canterbury, there

was even more demand elsewhere

on the Mainland.

It’s absolutely boom time down

there in Wanaka and Arrowtown,”

Meyer said.

“Te Anau … Golden Bay, people

are just snapping up anything that

comes on the market.

Meyer expected transactions to

spike again in the new year after

bach owners had enjoyed one last

summer in their home away from

home.

“Maybe the family didn’t come

this year, or the kids are all gone.

Maybe it’s too small because

they’ve got eight grandchildren,”

she said.

“We tend to see more come on

(the market) post-Christmas once

decisions are made.”

yoga pose of the month

Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt pose builds strength in your legs, core and back.

It aligns your spine and shoulders and is a great pose for

many different sports people. Rugby players, golfers, cyclists,

skiers and rock climbers, to name just a few, will benefit from

this pose. It helps to restore good postural alignment to your

body and infuse you with a sense of personal power.

• Stand with your feet together on your mat.

• Bend your knees, keeping your heels at the

floor.

• Hug your lower belly in towards your spine

and lift your torso and arms up towards the

sky.

• Move your weight mainly into your heels. You

may be able to lift your toes off the mat.

• You may find it helps to squeeze your knees

and thighs together for support. If you are

able, separate your knees a centimeter or

two.

• Draw your tailbone down towards the floor

and keep your abdominal muscles engaged.

• Reach your arms up alongside your ears with

your palms turned towards one another.

• Draw your shoulders back and expand your chest.

• Knit your front ribs

in towards the

centreline of your

body.

• Draw your shoulder

blades down your back

and inwards towards your

spine. This involves strong

engagement of the spinal

erectors – muscles in

your back that keep you

upright.

• If it does not bother your neck, lift your gaze

up towards your hands.

• Hold this pose for five deep breaths before

gently bowing forward from the hips. Allow

your arms to hang towards the floor.

In Thunderbolt, be struck by the vital energy of the pose, by the strength in your body

and the resolve and commitment in your heart.

Matchmaking in property and romance

• By Chris Barclay

YVETTE WRIGHT is single,

and looking – looking out

for Christchurch’s hopeless

romantics.

The Lyttelton-based real

estate agent has diversified into

matchmaking, with a dinner

party-based club for the wary

and lovelorn scheduled to hold

its first get-together later this

month.

The 52-year-old would have

launched Connect2Twelve

earlier had Covid-19 not crashed

the party though the pandemic

might actually pay off in the long

run.

“I think it’s made people look

at their lives a little bit as well

and maybe be a bit more proactive

in relationships and social

networking,” Wright said.

She went to ‘Table for Eight’

events during a 22-year stint in

Sydney, the catalyst for establishing

her own alternative to online

dating.

“I love dinner parties and

meeting people that way,” she

said.

“I’ve tried online dating, it can

be soul-destroying. I know some

people do have success, I’m not

knocking it, I just didn’t like it.”

Of course she has her own

online horror stories, the sort of

staple dinner conversations she

hopes to avoid around her tables

in future.

“It’s the usual story, they don’t

look anything like their picture.

One gentleman was nearly 20

years older when he finally

sent me a current photo. I felt

so humiliated and betrayed,

I had invested my emotions

into this communication and

right from the start it was a lie,”

Wright said, before relaying a

girlfriend’s brief, though galling,

encounter.

“He sat down and asked her:

‘Are we going to be having sex

tonight?’ and when she said: ‘No’

he just got up and walked out.

He only sat down with her for

five minutes.”

to Christchurch three years ago,

acknowledged online dating

was an obstacle, yet the likes of

Tinder might also work in her

favour.

“There’s a lot of fake profiles

with girlfriends, husbands and

wives trying to catch each other

out,” she said.

There are also safety issues

associated with meeting at

random.

“At least with a matchmaking

type of service you’re eyeballing

somebody. You can see their face

and their emotions, you can read

people.”

Wright vets all her prospective

clients before they are cleared to

pay the $375 annual membership

fee.

“I have a really good instinct

with people and if I want to do a

bit of a (police) check, my clients

know about that up front,” she

said.

Wright revealed she had rejected

two women already. One

was recently divorced and probably

not ready, the other seemed

too competitive.

“The (divorcee) needed to take

some time out and I thought

the other one would take over

conversations. There was a bit of

a jealous streak there.”

Meanwhile, Wright insisted

female clients had nothing to

fear from her as a potential love

rival in spite of her privileged

position.

“I don’t want to be competing

with them and it’d be easy for

me to do that considering I’m

meeting the men first,” she said.

“It’s unfair to the women if

I’m putting myself out there.

I’ll probably end up meeting

someone who runs a restaurant.”

Tasty Bites

Start the day a healthy way with muesli

MAKING YOUR own muesli is

by no means a cheap alternative

to the store-bought ones but it is

an easy way to get a delicious and

healthy cereal jam-packed with all

your favourite fruits and nuts.

You can use any combination

of ingredients that you like and

recipes can should be treated as a

guide.

Check out the self-serve bins for

fruit and nut ideas.

There is not a lot of honey in

these recipes as the fruit provides

most of the sweetness but you can

add more if you like.

Don’t omit the pinch of salt; it

makes a world of difference to the

finished product.

And finally, watch it carefully as

it cooks. It should be just starting

to colour up and become aromatic.

If you cook it too much, it will

become hard and crunchy.

Muesli

Ingredients

1/3 cup oil

2 tblsp honey

2 cups organic rolled oats

1 cup wheat flakes

¾ cup all bran or bran flakes

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

pinch of salt

½ cup dried apricots

½ cup dried papaya

Sick of late night tenant phone calls and being on call 24/7?

Tenants not paying their rent on time?

½ cup dried mango

½ cup dried pineapple

½ cup Brazil nuts

a few figs or dates

Pre-heat your oven to

150 deg C.

Roughly chop the dried fruit

and nuts and set aside. In a large

bowl combine the oats, wheat

flakes, all bran or bran flakes,

sunflower and pumpkin seeds

and the pinch of salt.

Soften the honey and mix with

the oil. Stir into the dry ingredients

until thoroughly coated.

Cover a baking tray with baking

paper and spread the mixture

Can’t find a tenant for your vacant property?

evenly over it. Place in the centre

of the oven and bake for six

or seven minutes. Remove from

the oven and give it a good stir

around. Return to the oven and

bake for a further five or six minutes.

Remove from the oven and

stir in the fruit. Place back in

the oven for another minute or

two. Take it out of the oven and

leave until completely cold before

storing in an airtight container.

(Makes about nine cups).

Bircher muesli

Named after Swiss nutritionist

Dr Bircher-Brenner, this raw

muesli is left to soak overnight

in fruit juice to create a scrumptious,

creamy concoction which is

enhanced by the addition of fresh

fruit and yogurt just before it is

eaten. It is a delicious way to start

the day.

The following recipe will make

enough for about six servings,

once you have added all the fresh

fruit and yogurt.

You can use a flavoured yoghurt

but the tang of a plain unsweetened

yoghurt compliments the

sweet fruit and creamy oats

nicely. Replace the orange juice

with milk if you prefer a creamier

muesli.

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup desiccated coconut

1/3 cup dates

1/3 cup dried apricots

1 dsp honey

1¼ cup fresh orange juice

To serve

2 bananas

1 apples

1 orange

plain yoghurt

Wash and roughly chop the dates

and apricots and mix with the

oats and coconut. Add the honey

and orange juice and stir well to

combine. Cover tightly and place

in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, grate the

apple, skin and all, and mash the

bananas. Stir into the oat mixture

along with a few tablespoons of

yoghurt. You can also add fresh

fruit such as an orange and milk

if you wish.

If you just want to make one

serving at a time, you can mix

together the oats, coconut, dates

and apricots and store them in an

airtight container.

That way you have the start

of a delicious breakfast that

just needs orange juice and a little

honey for the overnight soak and

the fruit in the

morning . . . yum.

Impossible: My Story

by stan Walker

A startling and important memoir about family and

forgiveness, love and redemption For the first time, Stan

Walker speaks with startling honesty about abuse and

addiction, hardship and excess, cancer and discrimination,

and growing up in a family where love and violence were

horribly entwined. From one of the finest singers to emerge

from Australia and New Zealand Aotearoa in a generation,

Impossible is a story of redemption and the power of

forgiveness. It’s also a story about courage and hope; about

a young Maori boy finding his place and purpose, never

forgetting who he is and where he came from.

Business broker offers wide-ranging

skills and experience

Business broker Graeme Brenssell has

extensive experience in business, ranging

from high-end corporate management to

successful business ownership. After being

a client of LINK Business, he decided to

become a broker, bringing with him 30

years of business knowledge.

As he explains: “Buying or selling a

business is one of the most important

decisions in your life and having been there

myself my aim is to achieve the best result

for my client and make the process as stress

free as possible.”

For many years Graeme was at ‘the coal

face’, making the tough decisions, bearing

the risk, seeing the rewards, and ultimately

growing his business into a nationwide

wholesaler and importer with international

can help

you sell your

business

business connections. Therefore, having

been in the same position as many of his

clients, he understands how important this

process is to a business owner, as well as

knowing the intricacies and nuances that

come with such a transaction.

Prior to becoming a business owner,

Graeme began his career as an accountant

in a Christchurch CA firm. From there

he developed his skills in the corporate

world, becoming a financial controller for

companies in New Zealand and overseas,

widely recognised for his ability to think

strategically and for his strengths in

strategic planning, financial control, and

systems development.

As a business broker Graeme says he

brings a broad, in-depth knowledge of

business operations complemented by

financial skills, and a strong desire to help

his clients.

“I have a well-rounded skill set and

considerable knowledge in business

development, financial management,

business appraisal, due diligence, change

management and business restructuring,

but first and foremost, I have been where

many of you are now,” he says.

In business broking Graeme was seeking

a partner with the same values he has of

working hard for the client.

“The company had to be exceptionally

professional and ethical, as well as ticking

several other key boxes. I was also seeking

a highly recognisable and respected brand.

This led me directly to LINK Business, the

largest business broker in the world with an

international network. Without question

they have more brokers, more listings and

more sales than any other business broking

company,” Graeme says.

BAY HARBOUR

“Balancing this, LINK is also a niche

business, only brokering businesses, not

real estate sales or commercial property

sales. This means that LINK focusses

strongly on supporting the sale process

of business and with 25 years’ experience,

has developed and refined its systems and

processes to achieve exceptional results.

“LINK has invested significantly in an

award-winning business appraisal tool and

consistently 95 per cent of businesses sell

within four per cent of the appraised value

– a great advantage to a business owner

Toyota Yaris hybrid pick-of-the-bunch

THERE WAS A time in Japan

when nearly all of Toyota’s new

vehicles were offered to the

domestic market with hybrid

technology.

In New Zealand we had a

smattering of them arrive here in

pre-owned form and, of course,

Toyota New Zealand had Prius and

its off-shoots – Prius C and Prius V.

Demand for hybrid technology

has allowed TNZ to broaden its

hybrid range, of course Lexus is well

represented in hybrid form, and

models within Toyota’s mainstream

range are becoming increasingly

available with hybrid options, take

Corolla and Rav4 as examples.

The latest Toyota hybrid to

land here is the new Yaris, a

small hatchback that needs little

introduction, only that the new

series is a completely new design

from the previous generation.

The shape is more cutesy and the

driveline is vastly different, even if

you discount the hybrid variants.

All new Yaris models have threecylinder

engines, and that is the

way engine build is trending, many

manufacturers are leaning towards

the three-pot layout to glean

efficiency advantages.

Recently I evaluated the entry

level petrol-only Yaris and was

charmed by the 1.5-litre, naturallyaspirated

three-pot engine, it is a

real honey. That same engine is

coupled to the hybrid system that is

an option in the four-model Yaris

range. There are two petrol-only

models and two hybrids, both with

varying specification levels.

This evaluation surrounds the

range-topping hybrid – ZR to be

exact. It lists at $32,990, adding

$5000 to the entry-level GX which

is most tempting and easily within

the budget of eco-conscious buyers.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that

when Prius arrived its price tag was

something one had to really aspire to;

today hybrids are affordable and the

Yaris definitely sits in that category.

For the record, the petrol-only

Yaris is priced at $25,990 and

$29,990. The pricing is structured

so that if you felt you wanted to do

something for the environment,

then a step up to hybrid isn’t

onerous. As an aside, both variants

have a $500 two-tone paint option.

To be honest, if I was a Yaris

buyer, I’d be into the hybrid, for

me it’s the best of both worlds,

that cheeky wee three-cylinder

engine and the benefits of battery

propulsion.

Yes, the Yaris in this form feels

sprightly; the electric boost on

top of the engine’s 67kW is very

noticeable. What’s more, battery

power comes in from a zero point,

it is immediate and adds to the

TOYOTA YARIS ZR: Fitted with economical hybrid system.

torquey nature of the engine. For

the record, Toyota claims a 120Nm

low end figure, while hybrid boost

adds18kW at the top end.

Take into account, too, that

the Yaris hybrid is light at just

1130kg, there is a constant feisty

feeling, the engine is a delight with

its characteristic harmonics and

free-revving nature. In traditional

Toyota hybrid fashion, drive is

sent to the front wheels through

continuously variable transmission.

The Yaris wants to run on electric

power mostly, of course the engine

has to charge the batteries, but it

seems to me the batteries have a

high and lasting charge, the engine

is quick to cut out, only reluctantly

coming on-board when immediate

acceleration is needed.

That’s no surprise, high power

batteries are the norm in hybrids

these days, and with further

efficiencies all-round the Yaris is a

lean operator.

Toyota claims an amazing

combined cycle fuel usage figures

of 3.3-litres per 100km for the Yaris

hybrid; that was a hard target but

I took the evaluation car back to

the dealership with the fuel usage

readout listing at 4l/100km, which

I was quite pleased with, and it

was up with the lowest readings

I’ve ever had testing a car with an

internal combustion engine.

For interest’s sake, the petrolonly

model is rated at 4.9l/100km,

so there are noticeable advantages

to be gained from buying hybrid.

While the Yaris might be

considered the quintessential city

runabout, it is also happy on a long

journey, I completed my usual

Malvern Hills circuit and it simply

cruises beautifully, fuss-free and

happy to tackle a quick overtake.

Toyota also claims a 10.2sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time, which is marginally quicker

than petrol-only. The Yaris hybrid

will also complete a highway

overtake in 7.1sec (80-120km/h),

that strong mid-range push making

this time very acceptable.

• Price – Toyota Yaris ZR

hybrid, $32,990

• Dimensions – Length,

3940mm; width, 1695mm;

height, 1500mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1490cc, 67kW,

120Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.2sec

• Fuel usage – 3.3l/100km

As capable as it is, the Yaris

hybrid will most definitely

appeal to those who will use it

as a city commuter and for the

occasional highway journey and,

for that matter, it is perfect for that

role.

In ZR form it gets a healthy level

of specification – keyless entry

and ignition, satellite navigation,

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,

radar cruise control and headup

display. The latter sit with

Toyota’s extensive suite of safety

technologies which, when tested,

should easily earn a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rating.

Not only does the entire Yaris

range stand out for its honesty and

frugal operating nature, the new

model has design flair and style on

its side. It competes well with the

raft of new-age fuel efficient models

which are landing in New Zealand

at the moment.

Toyota can relax though, its

hybrid systems are widely regarded

and you’d be hard pressed to find a

driveline with greater efficiency.

FREEDOM BY LAND ROVER FINANCE

THE ONLY THING CONFIDENT IN

MODEST IS THE DEPOSIT ALL CONDITIONS

DEPOSIT MONTHLY PAYMENTS FINAL PAYMENT

DRIVE AWAY FOR LESS THAN YOU WOULD EXPECT

The Freedom by Land Rover finance agreement is designed to get you in the driving seat of the premium vehicle you had previously only ever

dreamed of. Simply choose your Land Rover, agree on a deposit, set your monthly payments (based on your annual mileage) and the length of

contract you require – and drive away today.

When setting your annual mileage you also agree to standard wear and tear, and we establish a value that the car will be worth at the end of the

contract term (the “guaranteed future value”). If you decide to retain the vehicle at the end of the contracted term, you simply pay this agreed value.

Right now, with a $19,850 deposit, 35 monthly payments of $901, and a guaranteed future value of $42,066, you can drive away in your new Discovery

Sport R Dynamic S. Just one of the many options available across the range.

At the end of the term, you can choose to retain your Discovery Sport by paying the guaranteed future value, or hand back the keys. If your Discovery

Sport is worth more than the guaranteed future value, you can use this amount as a discount on the latest Land Rover model of your choice.

Archibalds | 38 Tuam St, Christchurch | 021 907 961 - Darren Griffith | archibalds.co.nz

Available on Discovery Sport R Dynamic S. MRP of $79,400, with monthly payments of $901 over a 3-year term, with a deposit of $19,850 plus a final balloon payment (the Guaranteed Future Value) of $42,066. Total mileage of no more than 45,000kms over the term
