Rock climber Matt saves<br />

lamb from certain death<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

SOMEWHERE on the Crater Rim<br />

Walkway near the Greenwood Park<br />

gun emplacements, a lamb will be<br />

thanking its lucky stars because of<br />

Redcliffs’ Matt Winter.<br />

The 34-year-climbing enthusiast,<br />

originally from Yorkshire, England,<br />

received a call from his friend Ria<br />

Holly, of Sumner, on Saturday morning<br />

saying she had found a lamb<br />

perched precariously on a cliff face<br />

on her morning run.<br />

Below the lamb was about a 25m<br />

drop. There was no grass or water for<br />

it to feed on.<br />

Winter and his partner Nina Coyle<br />

didn’t hesitate and were on their way<br />

to help minutes later.<br />

“Ria sounded quite concerned<br />

about the lamb. She said she<br />

wouldn’t live it down if it fell off the<br />

ledge,’’ Winter said. • Turn to page 6<br />

RESCUE: Matt Winter saved a lamb from a cliff edge on Saturday using climbing ropes and help from a<br />

group of his friends. ​<br />

Rising sea levels insurance crisis<br />

Dutch solution<br />

urged to<br />

counter<br />

flooding risk<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

REPLICATING flood<br />

prevention measures pioneered<br />

in Holland must be considered<br />

as homeowners in coastal<br />

suburbs risk massive insurance<br />

hikes to safeguard their<br />

properties.<br />

A report forecasting the<br />

impact of climate change on<br />

insurance premiums also feared<br />

some companies may ultimately<br />

refuse to cover seaside dwellings.<br />

Looking ahead to 2050,<br />

climate and insurance specialist<br />

Belinda Storey estimated at least<br />

10,000 homes in New Zealand’s<br />

major cities will effectively<br />

be uninsurable, while policy<br />

exclusions could kick in a decade<br />

from now.<br />

Storey’s study for the<br />

Deep South National<br />

Science Challenge predicted<br />

Christchurch would have 4850<br />

houses affected by premiums<br />

quadrupling after a 13-14cm rise<br />

in sea levels.<br />

Christchurch-based urban<br />

designer James Lunday said the<br />

study should be the catalyst for<br />

action.<br />

“It’s quite dramatic really. It’s<br />

almost as many houses as we lost<br />

in the ‘red zone’. If people want<br />

a scale, it’s kind of that scale,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Those houses won’t disappear<br />

but they could end up like<br />

a lot of properties in the east of<br />

Christchurch after the earthquakes.<br />

Not fixed up, just left, as<br />

is where is.”<br />

While there were no watertight<br />

solutions, Lunday advocated<br />

Christchurch follow Holland’s<br />

example and implement<br />

measures to combat global<br />

warming.<br />

“You can’t just keep building<br />

(sea) walls, Holland gave that up<br />

and they’ve been living with this<br />

forever,” he said.<br />

“What they’ve done is retreat<br />

from certain areas, create wetlands<br />

and build new islands off<br />

the coast. They’re habitat islands<br />

and what they do is they actually<br />

break up waves.<br />

“Clever engineering, building<br />

buildings that are movable . . .<br />

CHALLENGE:<br />

A report<br />

says coastal<br />

properties<br />

in suburbs<br />

like Sumner<br />

could face<br />

spiraling<br />

insurance<br />

premiums<br />

– or not be<br />

covered in<br />

future – due<br />

to climate<br />

change.<br />

floating houses, all the stuff they<br />

do in Holland – that will all be<br />

part of dealing with this.<br />

“We will have to reimagine<br />

and re-engineer our coastlines.<br />

“Everything is coming to a<br />

peak now, and we have to act on<br />

things that we’ve known about<br />

since the 70s.”<br />

Lunday was concerned about<br />

the ramifications for home owners<br />

if insurance costs escalated.<br />

“Ordinary communities, with<br />

ordinary people living out their<br />

lives with no real equity sitting<br />

behind them, these are the people<br />

that will be caught,” he said.<br />

“The exclusive areas are in the<br />

minority. They’ve got the money<br />

to either pay the insurance or<br />

pay off their mortgage and say:<br />

‘I’m happy to take the risk’.<br />

“The majority of people in<br />

New Brighton can’t carry the<br />

risk on their own, they’d lose<br />

everything that they had.”<br />

Ferrymead-based real estate<br />

agent Craig Prier acknowledged<br />

increased insurance premiums<br />

may have an affect on the market<br />

though not “premium waterfront<br />

positions”.<br />

“It’s hard to imagine lying<br />

empty because people can’t afford<br />

to live there,” he said.<br />

“For every one that can’t live<br />

there, there will be someone that<br />

can, or wants to, and they can<br />

afford it,” he said.<br />

The Insurance Council said it<br />

expected companies would keep<br />

covering existing customers – at<br />

higher premiums and excesses –<br />

but might decline new customers<br />

in risky places.<br />

Bindi Norwell, chief executive<br />

of REINZ, admitted insurance<br />

costs and availability was a<br />

developing concern.<br />

“In the next 15 years or<br />

so, as the report suggests, it<br />

could become increasingly<br />

unaffordable to fully insure your<br />

property,” she said.<br />

Down South<br />

In Search of the Great Southern<br />

Land<br />

by Bruce Ansley<br />

In Down South, writer Bruce Ansley goes on a<br />

journey back to his beloved South Island.<br />

From Curio <strong>Bay</strong> to Golden <strong>Bay</strong>, in Down South<br />

writer Bruce Ansley sets off on a vast expedition<br />

across the South Island, Te Waipounamu,<br />

visiting the places and people who hold clues<br />

to the south’s famous character. Not so very<br />

long ago, the South Island had most of New<br />

Zealand’s people and just about all of the<br />

money. Gold miners found fortunes in the hills<br />

and rivers, sheep barons straddled mountains,<br />

valleys and plains. Wealthy southerners ruled<br />

the government. Where now lies the South<br />

Island’s golden fleece? And what is its future?<br />

Murder on Mustique<br />

by Anne Glenconner<br />

Mustique is in a state of breathless calm as<br />

a tropical storm edges towards it. Most villa<br />

owners leave but a few remain to party on.<br />

When the body of a young American heiress is<br />

found the island’s sole policeman must begin<br />

a murder investigation just as the storm hits.<br />

An entertaining mystery from the author of Lady<br />

in Waiting.<br />

Ickabog<br />

by J K rowling<br />

The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the<br />

happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold,<br />

a king with the finest moustaches you could<br />

possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and<br />

cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a<br />

person dance with delight when they ate them.<br />

Everything was perfect - except for the misty<br />

Marshlands to the north which, according to<br />

legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog.<br />

Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just<br />

a myth, to scare children into behav ing. But the<br />

funny thing about myths is that sometimes they<br />

take on a life of their own. Could a myth unseat<br />

a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once<br />

happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust<br />

two children into an adventure they didn’t ask<br />

for and never expected? If you’re feeling brave,<br />

step into the pages of this book to find out<br />

A Promised Land<br />

by Barack Obama<br />

from young man searching for his identity to<br />

leader of the free world, describing in strikingly<br />

personal detail both his political education<br />

and the landmark moments of the first term<br />

of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic<br />

transformation and turmoil. Obama takes<br />

readers on a compelling journey from his<br />

earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa<br />

caucus victory that demonstrated the power<br />

of grassroots activism to the watershed night<br />

of November 4, 2008, when he was elected<br />

44th president of the United States, becoming<br />

the first African American to hold the nation’s<br />

highest office.<br />

Girl in the Mirror<br />

by rose Carlyle<br />

Beautiful twin sisters Iris and Summer are<br />

startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye<br />

can see lies a darkness that sets them apart.<br />

Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been<br />

envious of open-hearted Summer’s seemingly<br />

never-ending good fortune, including her<br />

perfect husband, Adam. Called to Thailand to<br />

help sail the family yacht to the Seychelles,<br />

Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what<br />

might happen on the journey. But when she<br />

unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle<br />

of the Indian Ocean, everything changes.<br />

Now is her chance to take what she’s always<br />

wanted - the idyllic life she’s always coveted.<br />

But just how far will she go to get the life she’s<br />

dreamed about? And how will she make sure<br />

no one discovers the truth?<br />

entwined.<br />

From one of the finest singers to emerge from<br />

Australia and New Zealand Aotearoa in a<br />

generation, Impossible is a story of redemption<br />

Marina closure on the cards<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

Tori Peden<br />

BOATS MAY no longer be able<br />

to berth at Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> Marina,<br />

but Lyttelton teenagers could still<br />

be allowed to jump off it for years<br />

to come.<br />

The Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board has requested the city<br />

council approve the closure of<br />

the marina once existing licences<br />

expire or are<br />

terminated. A<br />

date for a final<br />

council decision<br />

is still yet to be<br />

set.<br />

Community<br />

board chairwoman<br />

Tori<br />

Peden said<br />

closure of the<br />

marina had been recommended<br />

as it was no longer fit for purpose<br />

and becoming “quite dangerous.”<br />

“If the council kept it open it<br />

would become quite expensive to<br />

fix,” she said.<br />

However, the board is hoping<br />

for at least one section of the<br />

marina to remain open for recreational<br />

purposes.<br />

“In the long run we are wanting<br />

to keep one arm of the marina<br />

open so children can jump off it.<br />

Children in the area really like to<br />

jump off the end of it, that is apparently<br />

what Lyttelton teenagers<br />

have done for many, many years.”<br />

While recreational activities<br />

such as jumping off the structure<br />

and also fishing are hoped to<br />

continue at the site, berthing is<br />

no longer seen as viable over the<br />

long-term.<br />

Peden said the majority of<br />

boaties had already shifted from<br />

Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> to Te Ana Marina<br />

in Lyttelton.<br />

“Most of them have already<br />

gone to Te Ana Marina, the<br />

council are just working with<br />

those still left at Magazine <strong>Bay</strong>,<br />

there are not many of them, to<br />

find the best solution.”<br />

The Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> Marina was<br />

devastated in a brutal storm in<br />

the year 2000. The marina disintegrated<br />

and 32 vessels berthed<br />

at it sunk after being struck by<br />

130km/h winds.<br />

The storm left 52 remnant piles<br />

by the city council last year.<br />

Many people find Apollo’s Power Vinyasa practice to be effective in<br />

relieving and preventing back pain and tension-related types of pain<br />

yoga pose<br />

of the month<br />

Aeroplane Pose<br />

Aeroplane strengthens your feet, legs, buttocks,<br />

abdomen and back while stretching the back<br />

of your standing leg. It improves balance and<br />

proprioception. It also encourages you to be<br />

confident and courageous as you reach your<br />

chest out in front of your standing foot.<br />

• Stand upright with your feet together, your arms<br />

by your side and your palms turned forwards.<br />

• Centre yourself on your left foot. Ground the<br />

centre of your left heel and the big toe and<br />

inner ball of your left foot firmly into the floor.<br />

• Do not over extend your left knee. Allow there<br />

to be a slight bend at your left knee but make<br />

your left thigh firm. Contract your left thigh<br />

muscles from skin, to muscle, to bone.<br />

• Turn your right thigh inwards a little and<br />

sustain that action throughout the pose.<br />

• Draw inwards and upwards at your belly to<br />

engage your abdominal muscles.<br />

• Reach your right leg straight back behind<br />

you and tilt your torso forwards. Lift your<br />

right leg up to hip height.<br />

• Turn the toes of your right foot straight down<br />

towards the floor, swivel your left hip out<br />

towards the left side slightly and turn your<br />

right hip down to be level with your left hip.<br />

• Draw your shoulder blades towards your spine<br />

and down your back towards your hips. Expand<br />

your chest and reach your chest forward.<br />

• Extend your arms strongly backward alongside<br />

your body towards the back of the room with<br />

the palms of your hands facing the floor.<br />

• Rest your gaze at the floor in front of you. Take<br />

five long, calm breaths before returning to<br />

standing then repeating on the opposite leg<br />

Everything that is disengaged will collapse towards the floor. Contract your muscles to their bones<br />

and create lift and lightness. Soar over the mundane cares of your day and free your mind.<br />

‘I’m trained to do that, it’s all in a day’s work’<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I’m a bit of an animal lover<br />

myself and I work as a rope access<br />

technician, that’s my job.<br />

So, she just asked me if I could<br />

lend my skills, so I got my rock<br />

climbing gear and headed up to<br />

meet her.”<br />

When Winter got there, he<br />

made sure the cliff was safe to<br />

attach his ropes to and abseiled<br />

down to the lamb.<br />

“When I got quite close it tried<br />

darting, so I put my hand out,<br />

grabbed it and stopped it from<br />

jumping off.”<br />

If the lamb had jumped off<br />

Winter said “it would have died<br />

on impact on the jagged rocks<br />

beneath.”<br />

But thanks to his efforts this<br />

didn’t happen. Once it was in<br />

Winter’s arms he climbed up<br />

about 3m and brought it to<br />

safety.<br />

Holly, whose partner Matt<br />

Doherty helped carry the lamb<br />

to safety on foot after it had been<br />

rescued from the cliff, said it was<br />

noticeably light and she is not<br />

sure how long it had been without<br />

water or food.<br />

“It must have been there for<br />

days because it was so light.”<br />

The lamb was carried<br />

away from the cliff and as<br />

this was happening Coyle<br />

saw two strangers with water<br />

bottles.<br />

“They handed over all of their<br />

water. The guy sat there for ages<br />

putting little dribbles in his<br />

hands and then letting the lamb<br />

drink it.”<br />

Once the lamb had the water<br />

and grazed on some grass, the<br />

group let it go free in the hope it<br />

would find its mother again.<br />

Winter said he does not<br />

consider himself a hero saying:<br />

“I’m trained to do that, it’s all in a<br />

day’s work.”<br />

However, he said his family<br />

back home in Yorkshire will be<br />

proud.<br />

SAFE: Nina Coyle helped carry the lamb to safety and<br />

looked on while Ria Holly and a stranger gave it water.<br />

Edith Cavell Corner<br />

Edith Cavell<br />

refurbishment a<br />

real positive for<br />

residents and staff<br />

Having initially working at Edith Cavell as a registered nurse,<br />

Maria Crone has now been Clinical manager there since the<br />

beginning of September. She sees the new refurbishment as<br />

a real positive for both the residents and staff.<br />

Edith Cavell’s Clinical Services Manager, Maria Crone, with resident, Wendy Theobald.<br />

“Edith Cavell has been part of the Sumner community for a long time<br />

and people always comment of the warm and friendly character of the<br />

place,” says Maria.<br />

Although it has a lovely feel, it has been getting a bit tired and she<br />

believes the new improvements will give everyone a renewed sense<br />

of pride. Maria says, “This is many people’s home and to know that<br />

there’s being a real investment in it gives them that sense of really<br />

being cared for.”<br />

Maria tells us the residents are already enjoying the bright new colours<br />

in the gardens. “It’s a special place where people can choose from<br />

a number of different spaces to sit and enjoy the outlook and we’re<br />

looking forward to new plantings to come,” she says.<br />

Maria says the new reception will be a really big plus. “It was difficult<br />

during COVID due to reception being tucked away and difficult to find.<br />

The new reception will be right up front so that when people come in,<br />

they will be greeted straight away by a friendly face,” she says.<br />

Santa’s Grotto helps fill events void<br />

A 10-DAY Christmas<br />

extravaganza is set to provide<br />

a whirlwind of entertainment<br />

in the city following the<br />

cancellation of major family<br />

events this year.<br />

QE II Park will be transformed<br />

into Santa’s Mega Grotto from<br />

tomorrow to replace the annual<br />

Santa Parade that was scrapped<br />

in light of Covid-19 – a first in its<br />

73-year history.<br />

It also replaces Coca-Cola<br />

Christmas in the Park and the<br />

Canterbury A&P Show, both of<br />

which were cancelled due to the<br />

pandemic.<br />

Canterbury children to miss out<br />

this year.<br />

Said trust manager Pam<br />

Morris: “With the cancellation of<br />

all three family-aligned events,<br />

the trust didn’t want the children<br />

of Canterbury to miss out<br />

completely on a little Christmas<br />

joy and entertainment, so we<br />

decided on this contingency<br />

event.<br />

“The trust now owns a huge<br />

building with a mezzanine floor<br />

in the middle, with viewing on<br />

both sides.”<br />

The building will be adorned<br />

with Christmas lighting, and<br />

ONE OF the early industries in Heathcote<br />

was the Zealandia Soap and Candle<br />

Company.<br />

In 1896 the company purchased land<br />

near the current Mitre 10 Megastore at<br />

Ferrymead. The site was formerly used by<br />

a carpet factory.<br />

The new factory was large and produced<br />

washing soap, wax and candles.<br />

Fifty tons of soap was made each month.<br />

The popular brand names were Velvet<br />

soap and Searchlight candles.<br />

The speciality product was a coldwater<br />

soap patented by a Mr Biggs of<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Just a year after opening tragedy struck<br />

when the manager, 38-year-old John<br />

Myles Maxwell, was killed by a 4cwt cask<br />

of tallow.<br />

As it was being raised into a soap tank<br />

the cask fell across Maxwell’s chest and<br />

head.<br />

He died immediately. The Star of<br />

February 5, 1897, says: “The deceased,<br />

who leaves a wife and three children, was<br />

greatly esteemed by all who knew him,<br />

and his untimely death will be deeply<br />

regretted”.<br />

The jury at the inquest returned a<br />

verdict of accidental death and made<br />

several recommendations to improve<br />

safety at the factory.<br />

There is no sign today of the soap works<br />

other than the occasional piece of concrete<br />

or iron dug up by volunteers as they plant<br />

native trees and shrubs.<br />

The city council created new ponds<br />

there in 1999 and more than 130,000<br />

plants have been put in to recreate the<br />

coastal wetland.<br />

On Sunday afternoons at 3pm<br />

volunteers meet to plant, weed and mulch<br />

at the reserve. You are very welcome to<br />

join them.<br />

Alex Todd: League player of the decade<br />

• By Will Evans<br />

LINWOOD KEAS and<br />

Canterbury Bulls stalwart<br />

Alex Todd’s naming as the<br />

Canterbury Rugby League player<br />

of the decade is a reminder<br />

there will always be a place for<br />

hard-working, consistent, tough<br />

grafters in the code.<br />

Following in the footsteps of<br />

Jonny Limmer, the CRL’s player<br />

of the 2000-10 decade, the prop<br />

was judged Canterbury’s standout<br />

player of the 2010s by a panel<br />

comprising the Bulls’ coaches<br />

over that time frame – Brent Stuart,<br />

Mike Dorreen, Darrell Coad<br />

and Andrew Auimatagi.<br />

The judges voted for their<br />

three top players of the decade<br />

on a 3-2-1 basis – Todd was the<br />

resounding winner with 10 of a<br />

possible 12 votes.<br />

Hornby duo James Baxendale<br />

and Corey Lawrie, Celebration<br />

great Kyle Leka, Riccarton icon<br />

Shane Tamatea and Linwood veteran<br />

Erwin Sauni also received<br />

votes.<br />

“It means bloody heaps,” said<br />

Todd, the son of Sumner Surf<br />

Life Saving Club stalwart Craig.<br />

“Considering the players I’ve<br />

played alongside, to be receiving<br />

this award is pretty unbelievable.”<br />

Todd grew up in Redcliffs and<br />

developed through Linwood’s<br />

junior ranks. After dabbling in<br />

rugby union with Sumner, he returned<br />

to the Keas as a teenager<br />

and made his senior debut as the<br />

club took out the 2007 premier<br />

reserves title.<br />

A year later he helped the Keas<br />

lift the Pat Smith Trophy by beating<br />

Papanui in the grand final<br />

and in 20<strong>09</strong> he made his debut<br />

as a 19-year-old in the Stuartcoached<br />

Bartercard Premiershipwinning<br />

side.<br />

Todd briefly returned to the<br />

15-a-side game with Sumner in<br />

2014, but he was back on Linwood’s<br />

roster the following<br />

season and immediately regained<br />

his representative spot.<br />

“I definitely missed the league<br />

environment, but going to rugby<br />

was something I wanted to do –<br />

HARD YARDS: Linwood Keas and Canterbury Bulls veteran Alex Todd has been named<br />

the Canterbury Rugby League’s player of the 2010-20 decade.<br />

go back to my junior club where I<br />

played rugby as a kid, give it a go<br />

and see what it was about,” Todd<br />

said.<br />

The durable Todd has been at<br />

the forefront during the Keas’<br />

run of five straight CRL grand<br />

final triumphs from 2016-20.<br />

Incredibly, he has won the Mel<br />

Cooke Trophy as the standout<br />

STANDOUT: Rugby league stalwart Alex Todd combines<br />

his club and provincial career with construction work in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

player in the decider an unprecedented<br />

three times – in 2017-18<br />

and again this season.<br />

He has also been a fixture for<br />

his province over the past six<br />

seasons, again captaining an<br />

experienced Bulls squad in the<br />

NZRL National Premiership<br />

campaign.<br />

The 31-year-old credits his individual<br />

success to some simple<br />

rugby league principles.<br />

“My fitness, and just turning<br />

up and helping my mate out on<br />

the field. I’m not the flashest of<br />

players, but I try and get in and<br />

do my job,” he said.<br />

“A lot of it’s to do with our<br />

culture at Linwood as well. You<br />

always want to be there for your<br />

mate and not let them down.”<br />

A regular skipper for Linwood<br />

and Canterbury, the battle-hardened<br />

Todd has slipped seamlessly<br />

into a leadership role in recent<br />

seasons.<br />

“It’s something I’ve slowly<br />

moved into. I’d been at Linwood<br />

for a wee while and when Aga<br />

(Fiso) stepped away from the<br />

leadership group (he retired in<br />

2017) it was a natural progression<br />

to move into that role with Paul<br />

(Sauni).<br />

“I’m probably not the biggest<br />

talker but I do try to lead<br />

through my actions.”<br />

If there has been one constant<br />

in Todd’s career, it’s the guidance<br />

of Auimatagi.<br />

He was Todd’s first premier<br />

reserves coach, while the pair<br />

played together in the Keas’ 2008<br />

grand final win and the Bulls’<br />

successful Bartercard Premiership<br />

campaign a year later.<br />

Auimatagi and Todd then<br />

teamed up as coach and frontrow<br />

anchor in five straight grand<br />

finals (2015-19) for four wins,<br />

and in every Bulls campaign<br />

since 2016.<br />

“Andrew’s had a huge influence<br />

on my career,” Todd said.<br />

“When I started playing premier<br />

Bs in 2007 he was my coach,<br />

and I came through and played<br />

alongside him at club and rep<br />

level, now he’s coached me for a<br />

long time. But he’s a really good<br />

bloke and really knows the game.<br />

“Another guy is (former<br />

teammate and current Keas<br />

coach) Aga, he’s a pretty amazing<br />

leader and someone I’ve always<br />

looked up to,” he said, adding he<br />

was in no rush to hang up the<br />

boots.<br />

“As long as the body keeps<br />

holding up alright I’ll keep playing<br />

for as long as I can. You’re a<br />

long time retired.”<br />

The 150-game milestone for<br />

the Keas is the next achievement<br />

on Todd’s horizon in 2021 after<br />

he brought up three figures in<br />

2017.<br />

CRL chief executive Duane<br />

Fyfe praised Todd’s contribution<br />

when the award was presented.<br />

“‘Toddy is a great ambassador<br />

when representing his club and<br />

province, and has a reputation<br />

for doing his talking on the field<br />

with his direct style of play.<br />

“This is an outstanding<br />

accolade based on his<br />

commitment, perseverance and<br />

achievement over the previous<br />

decade.”<br />

Wine<br />

Tickle the urge with chilled rose<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

WHILE ROSE sells year round,<br />

I’m still a bit “old school” in my<br />

habits.<br />

For me, the combination<br />

of warmth, fresh air and the<br />

sun caressing the hilltops in a<br />

cloudless sky at the end of a busy<br />

day begins to tickle the urge for a<br />

glass of chilled rose.<br />

Roast pork from the oven or rotisserie<br />

Cook your Christmas<br />

pork a little differently<br />

this year, after all, <strong>2020</strong><br />

has been very different.<br />

And for Boxing Day<br />

brunch, try macaroni<br />

cheese with a difference<br />

Hornado de chancho<br />

marinated roast pork leg<br />

Ingredients<br />

4½ kg pork, leg, boned and<br />

rolled (ask your butcher to do<br />

this for you)<br />

2 tbsp ground cumin<br />

2 tbsp sea salt<br />

1½ tbsp ground paprika<br />

2 tsp freshly ground black pepper<br />

4 limes, juice only<br />

3 bottles lager, 330ml each<br />

80g butter, melted<br />

Marinated roast pork leg will make a tasty treat for Christmas Day. Macaroni and cauliflower cheese will make an<br />

effortless, fun meal for Boxing Day.<br />

Directions<br />

Use a small sharp knife to score<br />

the skin of the pork and make several<br />

deep incisions in the pork leg.<br />

Place in a non-reactive tray.<br />

Combine the garlic, cumin, salt,<br />

paprika and pepper in a bowl.<br />

Pour the lime juice over the<br />

pork and rub into all sides, then<br />

rub the spiced garlic paste over the<br />

pork, pushing it into the incisions.<br />

Cover and leave to marinate in<br />

the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.<br />

Pour the beer over the pork,<br />

cover and return to the refrigerator<br />

to marinate for a further 12 to<br />

24 hours, turning occasionally so<br />

that the leg marinates evenly.<br />

If you don’t have a rotisserie the<br />

park will cook in a normal oven<br />

using the same time frame.<br />

Preheat a gas barbecue fitted<br />

with a rotisserie to 200 deg C. All<br />

the burners should be turned to<br />

medium.<br />

Insert the rotisserie rod lengthwise<br />

through the leg of pork,<br />

ensuring the pork leg is evenly<br />

balanced. Secure the rotisserie spit<br />

according to the manufacturer’s<br />

instructions.<br />

Turn off the burners directly underneath<br />

the pork, leaving the side<br />

burners on medium. Place a drip<br />

tray filled with 1cm water underneath<br />

the pork.<br />

Baste the pork with the melted<br />

butter. Reduce the heat to 180 deg<br />

C and cook the pork for 1½ to 2<br />

hours, or until the skin is crisp and<br />

golden brown and the meat is just<br />

cooked through. Test with a skewer,<br />

the juices should run clear.<br />

Use barbecue mitts to remove<br />

the rotisserie rod. Take the pork<br />

off the rod and place on a large<br />

tray.<br />

Cover with foil and set aside to<br />

rest for 10 minutes.<br />

Cut into slices and serve with<br />

peruvian onion salsa, brazilian<br />

rice, and grilled red capsicum.<br />

Macaroni and cauliflower<br />

cheese<br />

Ingredients<br />

1 cauliflower<br />

1 1/2 cups macaroni<br />

cheese<br />

white sauce<br />

2 drops worcestershire sauce<br />

pinch salt<br />

Sliced tomato to decorate<br />

1 bacon bits, (optional)<br />

Directions<br />

Banch the cauliflower.<br />

Cook the macaroni in salted<br />

water until tender.<br />

Make a simple white sauce and<br />

melt a good amount of cheese into<br />

it. A little worcestershire sauce<br />

helps boost the flavour.<br />

Sit the macaroni and cauliflower<br />

in a baking dish.<br />

Pour over the cheesy sauce and<br />

gently mix through the contents.<br />

You could add grilled bacon<br />

pieces.<br />

Decorate with some tomato<br />

slices, add a little more grated<br />

cheese to the top and bake in a<br />

moderate oven until brown and<br />

bubbling.<br />

New Yaris buyer faces tough decisions<br />

MAKE NO MISTAKE, Toyota’s<br />

new hatchback Yaris is everything<br />

you would want – cheeky styling,<br />

fuel efficiency and value pricing.<br />

However, there is a challenge<br />

facing any potential buyer, that<br />

being the hybrid is the best in<br />

the series, and that may be a step<br />

too far price-wise for those in the<br />

budget car market.<br />

I base those comments on the<br />

three drives I’ve had in the new<br />

Yaris, I’ve driven two petrol-only<br />

models and a hybrid, and the latter<br />

wins out with its economy and<br />

driving experience, the connection<br />

to electric power makes for<br />

effortless motoring.<br />

Now, I’m not saying the<br />

petrol-only model isn’t worth<br />

consideration, I still like it, and<br />

most of that is because its threecylinder<br />

engine is also thrifty and<br />

truly delightful in terms of honesty.<br />

This evaluation focuses on the<br />

high-spec ZR variant which lists<br />

at $29,990, an extra $3000 buying<br />

you into the hybrid. Bear in mind,<br />

too, that the range starts at $25,990<br />

for the GX petrol model which<br />

I evaluated in these columns in<br />

September. It is also available in<br />

hybrid form at $27,990.<br />

All models have the same basic<br />

petrol powerplant – a 1.5-litre<br />

unit that, as I’ve mentioned, it only<br />

has three combustion chambers.<br />

Regular readers will recall my<br />

enthusiasm for that layout and in<br />

recent years many manufacturers<br />

have opted for that configuration.<br />

To me it makes a lot of sense, the<br />

less reciprocating mass you have<br />

the more efficient and smooth the<br />

engine becomes.<br />

However, those who do go the<br />

three-cylinder way will need to<br />

keep in mind that it is an experience<br />

just that little bit different, there are<br />

sounds that are foreign to that of say,<br />

a four-cylinder engine of the same<br />

capacity there is a distinctive tone<br />

and the Yaris buyer in all forms will<br />

need to adjust to that.<br />

In petrol form it is listed with<br />

an 88kW power output and<br />

145Nm of torque. These figures are<br />

relatively healthy for its capacity,<br />

and if you take into account that<br />

it is small and light at just 4m and<br />

1075kg respectively, the five-door<br />

hatchback feels nimble and is no<br />

slouch against the clock. You can<br />

expect a standstill to 100km/h<br />

acceleration time of around 10sec<br />

and 7.5sec to make 80-120km/h.<br />

On the subject of figures Toyota<br />

claims a 4.9-litre per 100km<br />

combined cycle fuel usage average.<br />

That’s a bold claim, but it is one<br />

that is within target. I took the<br />

evaluation car on a long highway<br />

loop, and on the open road<br />

straights the fuel usage readout was<br />

TOYOTA YARIS ZR: Petrol-only model has tough<br />

competition from its hybrid stablemate.<br />

listing 4l/100km instantaneously<br />

at 100km/h. That resulted in a<br />

dash display average of 5.5l/100km<br />

when I took the test car back to<br />

the dealership, which is not that far<br />

distant from Toyota’s claim.<br />

Of course, those figures are<br />

nowhere near those of the hybrid<br />

with its 3.3l/100km, but I wasn’t<br />

disappointed given that on<br />

occasion I allowed the wee engine<br />

to work freely towards the top end.<br />

Drive is sent to the front wheels<br />

through a continuously variable<br />

transmission, this is fast becoming<br />

Toyota’s gearbox of choice in<br />

the models it offers that are<br />

earmarked for efficiency. In the<br />

ZR-spec petrol-only Yaris there<br />

are paddle-shifters which will lock<br />

the transmission into any one of<br />

10 pre-set steps. That function is<br />

useful when slowing for corners, or<br />

for inclines, up or down.<br />

The CVT ratio has been<br />

structured to provide that<br />

reasonable acceleration to highway<br />

speed, and once there the engine is<br />

relaxed at 100km/h, turning over<br />

slowly at 2000rpm.<br />

Aimed at the twists and turns<br />

out of the Waimakariri River gorge<br />

bridge, the Yaris felt sprightly and<br />

agile. The chassis isn’t disturbed<br />

by mid-corner bumps or road<br />

deviations, the suspension does<br />

a good job of controlling body<br />

balance.<br />

The Yaris is also a comfortable<br />

car for four adults; it’s a bit of a<br />

squeeze width-wise for three adults<br />

in the rear, and leg room depends<br />

totally on how far back the front<br />

seat passengers have their seats, but<br />

there’s no shortage of head room, it<br />

is clever in the way it translates its<br />

limited space into occupant comfort.<br />

In ZR spec, the Yaris gets a<br />

good level of fitment that should<br />

please the budget-conscious buyer<br />

and those who rate safety as a key<br />

ingredient. To that end, when<br />

• Price – Toyota Yaris ZR,<br />

$29,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

3940mm; width, 1695mm;<br />

height, 1500mm<br />

• Configuration – Threecylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1490cc, 88kW,<br />

145Nm, continuously<br />

variable automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 10.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 4.9l/100km<br />

crash tested, the series should<br />

easily earn a five-star Australasian<br />

New Car Assessment Program<br />

rating, thanks to the Toyota<br />

SafetySense suite of technologies.<br />

There are too many features to<br />

mention in detail, but I particularly<br />

like the head-up display and radar<br />

cruise control.<br />

My daughter works for an<br />

organisation that has at least a<br />

dozen Yaris’ – mostly all white<br />

– that are used as pool cars on<br />

a daily basis. I told her they will<br />

probably be replaced in time with<br />

the newcomer. She’s hoping some<br />

of the trendy colours Toyota is<br />

offering in the new model will be<br />

incorporated into the fleet.<br />

I hope that when that time comes<br />

some would be hybrids, but if not,<br />

then the petrol-only model is still a<br />

very worthy consideration.<br />

Just as you would expect from<br />

Toyota, the new Yaris is a smart car<br />

and one which pleases in all forms,<br />

you can expect it to last forever and<br />

at the same time be charmed at<br />

every drive with that delightful wee<br />

engine up front.

ADVERTISING FEATURE<br />

If the walls of this historic villa could talk, they<br />

would have stories to tell, they undoubtedly<br />

hold secrets. Dating back to the 1880s,this<br />

period residence is timeless in design and<br />

offers exceptional views over the <strong>Harbour</strong> and<br />

the newly built Te Ana Marina.<br />

While it is well-suited as a family or first home,<br />

this hasn't always been the case. Previously, it<br />

was reserved as a place of pleasure having<br />

famously operated as the local Massage Parlour,<br />

and then conversely was the residence of a<br />

Lyttelton Police Officer.<br />

Timber floors, leadlight windows, the charming<br />

verandah and the home's high ceilings all serve<br />

as elegant reminders of the past. Due to the<br />

home's era, it could naturally benefit from some<br />

upgrades, and buyers will appreciate that they<br />

can live incredibly comfortably while deciding<br />

how they will refresh the decor and ultimately<br />

add value to the property.<br />

Arranged across two floors, the layout is<br />

exceedingly practical and includes an open<br />

plan kitchen, dining and family area on the<br />

ground floor which is complemented by a<br />

separate lounge that enjoys the warmth of a<br />

new pellet fire. A study, bedroom and the<br />

bathroom are also placed downstairs while the<br />

remaining two bedrooms are positioned<br />

upstairs. Toilet facilities are conveniently<br />

located on each level.<br />

Contemporary comfort has been introduced<br />

in the form of a heat pump that provides<br />

comfort throughout the year. The kitchen and<br />

bathroom are both highly functional but<br />

would respond superbly to modernisation.<br />

Located only a short stroll from London Street<br />

with its bespoke shops, cafes and eateries, it's<br />

also near Lyttelton Primary School which<br />

broadens the home's appeal.<br />

This property is well-recognised in the<br />

community and has been home to many locals,<br />

so if you wish to secure a distinctive slice of<br />

history, then you are advised to act quickly.<br />
