Rock climber Matt saves

lamb from certain death

• By Matt Slaughter

SOMEWHERE on the Crater Rim

Walkway near the Greenwood Park

gun emplacements, a lamb will be

thanking its lucky stars because of

Redcliffs’ Matt Winter.

The 34-year-climbing enthusiast,

originally from Yorkshire, England,

received a call from his friend Ria

Holly, of Sumner, on Saturday morning

saying she had found a lamb

perched precariously on a cliff face

on her morning run.

Below the lamb was about a 25m

drop. There was no grass or water for

it to feed on.

Winter and his partner Nina Coyle

didn’t hesitate and were on their way

to help minutes later.

“Ria sounded quite concerned

about the lamb. She said she

wouldn’t live it down if it fell off the

ledge,’’ Winter said. • Turn to page 6

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

group of his friends. ​

Rising sea levels insurance crisis

Dutch solution

urged to

counter

flooding risk

• By Chris Barclay

REPLICATING flood

prevention measures pioneered

in Holland must be considered

as homeowners in coastal

suburbs risk massive insurance

hikes to safeguard their

properties.

A report forecasting the

impact of climate change on

insurance premiums also feared

some companies may ultimately

refuse to cover seaside dwellings.

Looking ahead to 2050,

climate and insurance specialist

Belinda Storey estimated at least

10,000 homes in New Zealand’s

major cities will effectively

be uninsurable, while policy

exclusions could kick in a decade

from now.

Storey’s study for the

Deep South National

Science Challenge predicted

Christchurch would have 4850

houses affected by premiums

quadrupling after a 13-14cm rise

in sea levels.

Christchurch-based urban

designer James Lunday said the

study should be the catalyst for

action.

“It’s quite dramatic really. It’s

almost as many houses as we lost

in the ‘red zone’. If people want

a scale, it’s kind of that scale,” he

said.

“Those houses won’t disappear

but they could end up like

a lot of properties in the east of

Christchurch after the earthquakes.

Not fixed up, just left, as

is where is.”

While there were no watertight

solutions, Lunday advocated

Christchurch follow Holland’s

example and implement

measures to combat global

warming.

“You can’t just keep building

(sea) walls, Holland gave that up

and they’ve been living with this

forever,” he said.

“What they’ve done is retreat

from certain areas, create wetlands

and build new islands off

the coast. They’re habitat islands

and what they do is they actually

break up waves.

“Clever engineering, building

buildings that are movable . . .

CHALLENGE:

A report

says coastal

properties

in suburbs

like Sumner

could face

spiraling

insurance

premiums

– or not be

covered in

future – due

to climate

change.

floating houses, all the stuff they

do in Holland – that will all be

part of dealing with this.

“We will have to reimagine

and re-engineer our coastlines.

“Everything is coming to a

peak now, and we have to act on

things that we’ve known about

since the 70s.”

Lunday was concerned about

the ramifications for home owners

if insurance costs escalated.

“Ordinary communities, with

ordinary people living out their

lives with no real equity sitting

behind them, these are the people

that will be caught,” he said.

“The exclusive areas are in the

minority. They’ve got the money

to either pay the insurance or

pay off their mortgage and say:

‘I’m happy to take the risk’.

“The majority of people in

New Brighton can’t carry the

risk on their own, they’d lose

everything that they had.”

Ferrymead-based real estate

agent Craig Prier acknowledged

increased insurance premiums

may have an affect on the market

though not “premium waterfront

positions”.

“It’s hard to imagine lying

empty because people can’t afford

to live there,” he said.

“For every one that can’t live

there, there will be someone that

can, or wants to, and they can

afford it,” he said.

The Insurance Council said it

expected companies would keep

covering existing customers – at

higher premiums and excesses –

but might decline new customers

in risky places.

Bindi Norwell, chief executive

of REINZ, admitted insurance

costs and availability was a

developing concern.

“In the next 15 years or

so, as the report suggests, it

could become increasingly

unaffordable to fully insure your

property,” she said.

Down South

In Search of the Great Southern

Land

by Bruce Ansley

In Down South, writer Bruce Ansley goes on a

journey back to his beloved South Island.

From Curio Bay to Golden Bay, in Down South

writer Bruce Ansley sets off on a vast expedition

across the South Island, Te Waipounamu,

visiting the places and people who hold clues

to the south’s famous character. Not so very

long ago, the South Island had most of New

Zealand’s people and just about all of the

money. Gold miners found fortunes in the hills

and rivers, sheep barons straddled mountains,

valleys and plains. Wealthy southerners ruled

the government. Where now lies the South

Island’s golden fleece? And what is its future?

Murder on Mustique

by Anne Glenconner

Mustique is in a state of breathless calm as

a tropical storm edges towards it. Most villa

owners leave but a few remain to party on.

When the body of a young American heiress is

found the island’s sole policeman must begin

a murder investigation just as the storm hits.

An entertaining mystery from the author of Lady

in Waiting.

Ickabog

by J K rowling

The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the

happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold,

a king with the finest moustaches you could

possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and

cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a

person dance with delight when they ate them.

Everything was perfect - except for the misty

Marshlands to the north which, according to

legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog.

Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just

a myth, to scare children into behav ing. But the

funny thing about myths is that sometimes they

take on a life of their own. Could a myth unseat

a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once

happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust

two children into an adventure they didn’t ask

for and never expected? If you’re feeling brave,

step into the pages of this book to find out

A Promised Land

by Barack Obama

In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume

of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama

tells the story of his improbable odyssey

from young man searching for his identity to

leader of the free world, describing in strikingly

personal detail both his political education

and the landmark moments of the first term

of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic

transformation and turmoil. Obama takes

readers on a compelling journey from his

earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa

caucus victory that demonstrated the power

of grassroots activism to the watershed night

of November 4, 2008, when he was elected

44th president of the United States, becoming

the first African American to hold the nation’s

highest office.

Girl in the Mirror

by rose Carlyle

Beautiful twin sisters Iris and Summer are

startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye

can see lies a darkness that sets them apart.

Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been

envious of open-hearted Summer’s seemingly

never-ending good fortune, including her

perfect husband, Adam. Called to Thailand to

help sail the family yacht to the Seychelles,

Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what

might happen on the journey. But when she

unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle

of the Indian Ocean, everything changes.

Now is her chance to take what she’s always

wanted - the idyllic life she’s always coveted.

But just how far will she go to get the life she’s

dreamed about? And how will she make sure

no one discovers the truth?

Marina closure on the cards

• By Louis Day

Tori Peden

BOATS MAY no longer be able

to berth at Magazine Bay Marina,

but Lyttelton teenagers could still

be allowed to jump off it for years

to come.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board has requested the city

council approve the closure of

the marina once existing licences

expire or are

terminated. A

date for a final

council decision

is still yet to be

set.

Community

board chairwoman

Tori

Peden said

closure of the

marina had been recommended

as it was no longer fit for purpose

and becoming “quite dangerous.”

“If the council kept it open it

would become quite expensive to

fix,” she said.

However, the board is hoping

for at least one section of the

marina to remain open for recreational

purposes.

“In the long run we are wanting

to keep one arm of the marina

open so children can jump off it.

Children in the area really like to

jump off the end of it, that is apparently

what Lyttelton teenagers

have done for many, many years.”

While recreational activities

such as jumping off the structure

and also fishing are hoped to

continue at the site, berthing is

no longer seen as viable over the

long-term.

Peden said the majority of

boaties had already shifted from

Magazine Bay to Te Ana Marina

in Lyttelton.

“Most of them have already

gone to Te Ana Marina, the

council are just working with

those still left at Magazine Bay,

there are not many of them, to

find the best solution.”

The Magazine Bay Marina was

devastated in a brutal storm in

the year 2000. The marina disintegrated

and 32 vessels berthed

at it sunk after being struck by

130km/h winds.

The storm left 52 remnant piles

in its wake which remained at the

marina until they were removed

by the city council last year.

CHANGE OF SCENERY: The

Banks Peninsula Community

Board has recommended

the closure of the Magazine

Bay Marina as it is no longer

seen fit for purpose. A lot of

boaties have now moved on

to Lyttelton’s Te Ana Marina

mooring facility (below).

yoga pose

of the month

Aeroplane Pose

Aeroplane strengthens your feet, legs, buttocks,

abdomen and back while stretching the back

of your standing leg. It improves balance and

proprioception. It also encourages you to be

confident and courageous as you reach your

chest out in front of your standing foot.

• Stand upright with your feet together, your arms

by your side and your palms turned forwards.

• Centre yourself on your left foot. Ground the

centre of your left heel and the big toe and

inner ball of your left foot firmly into the floor.

• Do not over extend your left knee. Allow there

to be a slight bend at your left knee but make

your left thigh firm. Contract your left thigh

muscles from skin, to muscle, to bone.

• Turn your right thigh inwards a little and

sustain that action throughout the pose.

• Draw inwards and upwards at your belly to

engage your abdominal muscles.

• Reach your right leg straight back behind

you and tilt your torso forwards. Lift your

right leg up to hip height.

• Turn the toes of your right foot straight down

towards the floor, swivel your left hip out

towards the left side slightly and turn your

right hip down to be level with your left hip.

• Draw your shoulder blades towards your spine

and down your back towards your hips. Expand

your chest and reach your chest forward.

• Extend your arms strongly backward alongside

your body towards the back of the room with

the palms of your hands facing the floor.

• Rest your gaze at the floor in front of you. Take

five long, calm breaths before returning to

standing then repeating on the opposite leg

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

and create lift and lightness. Soar over the mundane cares of your day and free your mind.

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

• From page 1

“I’m a bit of an animal lover

myself and I work as a rope access

technician, that’s my job.

So, she just asked me if I could

lend my skills, so I got my rock

climbing gear and headed up to

meet her.”

When Winter got there, he

made sure the cliff was safe to

attach his ropes to and abseiled

down to the lamb.

“When I got quite close it tried

darting, so I put my hand out,

grabbed it and stopped it from

jumping off.”

If the lamb had jumped off

Winter said “it would have died

on impact on the jagged rocks

beneath.”

But thanks to his efforts this

didn’t happen. Once it was in

Winter’s arms he climbed up

about 3m and brought it to

safety.

Holly, whose partner Matt

Doherty helped carry the lamb

to safety on foot after it had been

rescued from the cliff, said it was

noticeably light and she is not

sure how long it had been without

water or food.

“It must have been there for

days because it was so light.”

The lamb was carried

away from the cliff and as

this was happening Coyle

saw two strangers with water

bottles.

“They handed over all of their

water. The guy sat there for ages

putting little dribbles in his

hands and then letting the lamb

drink it.”

Once the lamb had the water

and grazed on some grass, the

group let it go free in the hope it

would find its mother again.

Winter said he does not

consider himself a hero saying:

“I’m trained to do that, it’s all in a

day’s work.”

However, he said his family

back home in Yorkshire will be

proud.

SAFE: Nina Coyle helped carry the lamb to safety and

looked on while Ria Holly and a stranger gave it water.

Edith Cavell Corner

Edith Cavell

refurbishment a

real positive for

residents and staff

Having initially working at Edith Cavell as a registered nurse,

Maria Crone has now been Clinical manager there since the

beginning of September. She sees the new refurbishment as

a real positive for both the residents and staff.

Edith Cavell’s Clinical Services Manager, Maria Crone, with resident, Wendy Theobald.

“Edith Cavell has been part of the Sumner community for a long time

and people always comment of the warm and friendly character of the

place,” says Maria.

Although it has a lovely feel, it has been getting a bit tired and she

believes the new improvements will give everyone a renewed sense

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

there’s being a real investment in it gives them that sense of really

being cared for.”

Maria tells us the residents are already enjoying the bright new colours

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

a number of different spaces to sit and enjoy the outlook and we’re

looking forward to new plantings to come,” she says.

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

during COVID due to reception being tucked away and difficult to find.

The new reception will be right up front so that when people come in,

they will be greeted straight away by a friendly face,” she says.

Watch this space for more news and updates on Edith Cavell’s refurbishment.

Santa’s Grotto helps fill events void

A 10-DAY Christmas

extravaganza is set to provide

a whirlwind of entertainment

in the city following the

cancellation of major family

events this year.

QE II Park will be transformed

into Santa’s Mega Grotto from

tomorrow to replace the annual

Santa Parade that was scrapped

in light of Covid-19 – a first in its

73-year history.

It also replaces Coca-Cola

Christmas in the Park and the

Canterbury A&P Show, both of

which were cancelled due to the

pandemic.

did not want

Canterbury children to miss out

this year.

Said trust manager Pam

Morris: “With the cancellation of

all three family-aligned events,

the trust didn’t want the children

of Canterbury to miss out

completely on a little Christmas

joy and entertainment, so we

decided on this contingency

event.

“The trust now owns a huge

building with a mezzanine floor

in the middle, with viewing on

both sides.”

The building will be adorned

with Christmas lighting, and

December 2020 or while stocks last. Wine and beer available at stores with an off

licence. Wine and beer purchases restricted to persons aged 18 years old and over.

ONE OF the early industries in Heathcote

was the Zealandia Soap and Candle

Company.

In 1896 the company purchased land

near the current Mitre 10 Megastore at

Ferrymead. The site was formerly used by

a carpet factory.

The new factory was large and produced

washing soap, wax and candles.

Fifty tons of soap was made each month.

The popular brand names were Velvet

soap and Searchlight candles.

The speciality product was a coldwater

soap patented by a Mr Biggs of

Christchurch.

Just a year after opening tragedy struck

when the manager, 38-year-old John

Myles Maxwell, was killed by a 4cwt cask

of tallow.

As it was being raised into a soap tank

the cask fell across Maxwell’s chest and

head.

He died immediately. The Star of

February 5, 1897, says: “The deceased,

who leaves a wife and three children, was

greatly esteemed by all who knew him,

and his untimely death will be deeply

regretted”.

The jury at the inquest returned a

verdict of accidental death and made

several recommendations to improve

safety at the factory.

There is no sign today of the soap works

other than the occasional piece of concrete

or iron dug up by volunteers as they plant

native trees and shrubs.

The city council created new ponds

there in 1999 and more than 130,000

plants have been put in to recreate the

coastal wetland.

On Sunday afternoons at 3pm

volunteers meet to plant, weed and mulch

at the reserve. You are very welcome to

join them.

Alex Todd: League player of the decade

• By Will Evans

LINWOOD KEAS and

Canterbury Bulls stalwart

Alex Todd’s naming as the

Canterbury Rugby League player

of the decade is a reminder

there will always be a place for

hard-working, consistent, tough

grafters in the code.

Following in the footsteps of

Jonny Limmer, the CRL’s player

of the 2000-10 decade, the prop

was judged Canterbury’s standout

player of the 2010s by a panel

comprising the Bulls’ coaches

over that time frame – Brent Stuart,

Mike Dorreen, Darrell Coad

and Andrew Auimatagi.

The judges voted for their

three top players of the decade

on a 3-2-1 basis – Todd was the

resounding winner with 10 of a

possible 12 votes.

Hornby duo James Baxendale

and Corey Lawrie, Celebration

great Kyle Leka, Riccarton icon

Shane Tamatea and Linwood veteran

Erwin Sauni also received

votes.

“It means bloody heaps,” said

Todd, the son of Sumner Surf

Life Saving Club stalwart Craig.

“Considering the players I’ve

played alongside, to be receiving

this award is pretty unbelievable.”

Todd grew up in Redcliffs and

developed through Linwood’s

junior ranks. After dabbling in

rugby union with Sumner, he returned

to the Keas as a teenager

and made his senior debut as the

club took out the 2007 premier

reserves title.

A year later he helped the Keas

lift the Pat Smith Trophy by beating

Papanui in the grand final

and in 2009 he made his debut

as a 19-year-old in the Stuartcoached

Bartercard Premiershipwinning

side.

Todd briefly returned to the

15-a-side game with Sumner in

2014, but he was back on Linwood’s

roster the following

season and immediately regained

his representative spot.

“I definitely missed the league

environment, but going to rugby

was something I wanted to do –

the Canterbury Rugby League’s player of the 2010-20 decade.

go back to my junior club where I

played rugby as a kid, give it a go

and see what it was about,” Todd

said.

The durable Todd has been at

the forefront during the Keas’

run of five straight CRL grand

final triumphs from 2016-20.

Incredibly, he has won the Mel

Cooke Trophy as the standout

player in the decider an unprecedented

three times – in 2017-18

and again this season.

He has also been a fixture for

his province over the past six

seasons, again captaining an

experienced Bulls squad in the

NZRL National Premiership

campaign.

The 31-year-old credits his individual

success to some simple

rugby league principles.

“My fitness, and just turning

up and helping my mate out on

the field. I’m not the flashest of

players, but I try and get in and

do my job,” he said.

“A lot of it’s to do with our

culture at Linwood as well. You

always want to be there for your

mate and not let them down.”

A regular skipper for Linwood

and Canterbury, the battle-hardened

Todd has slipped seamlessly

into a leadership role in recent

seasons.

“It’s something I’ve slowly

moved into. I’d been at Linwood

for a wee while and when Aga

(Fiso) stepped away from the

leadership group (he retired in

2017) it was a natural progression

to move into that role with Paul

(Sauni).

“I’m probably not the biggest

talker but I do try to lead

through my actions.”

If there has been one constant

in Todd’s career, it’s the guidance

of Auimatagi.

He was Todd’s first premier

reserves coach, while the pair

played together in the Keas’ 2008

grand final win and the Bulls’

successful Bartercard Premiership

campaign a year later.

Auimatagi and Todd then

teamed up as coach and frontrow

anchor in five straight grand

finals (2015-19) for four wins,

and in every Bulls campaign

since 2016.

“Andrew’s had a huge influence

on my career,” Todd said.

“When I started playing premier

Bs in 2007 he was my coach,

and I came through and played

alongside him at club and rep

level, now he’s coached me for a

long time. But he’s a really good

bloke and really knows the game.

“Another guy is (former

teammate and current Keas

coach) Aga, he’s a pretty amazing

leader and someone I’ve always

looked up to,” he said, adding he

was in no rush to hang up the

boots.

“As long as the body keeps

holding up alright I’ll keep playing

for as long as I can. You’re a

long time retired.”

The 150-game milestone for

the Keas is the next achievement

on Todd’s horizon in 2021 after

he brought up three figures in

2017.

CRL chief executive Duane

Fyfe praised Todd’s contribution

when the award was presented.

“‘Toddy is a great ambassador

when representing his club and

province, and has a reputation

for doing his talking on the field

with his direct style of play.

“This is an outstanding

accolade based on his

commitment, perseverance and

achievement over the previous

decade.”

Wine

Tickle the urge with chilled rose

• By Mark Henderson

WHILE ROSE sells year round,

I’m still a bit “old school” in my

habits.

For me, the combination

of warmth, fresh air and the

sun caressing the hilltops in a

cloudless sky at the end of a busy

day begins to tickle the urge for a

glass of chilled rose.

I hope that some of the

following might help to tickle that

urge for you.

2019 Aurum Organic pinot

gris rose

Price: $28

Rating: Excellent

Peachy onion skin hue.

Savoury notes lead with

nectarine and stonefruit, a hint of

yeasty Marmite later.

Delightfully creamy texture,

a burst of fruit, stonefruit, red

apple, pear with time.

Generously flavoured, with

richness and depth to the fruit.

A full-bodied Rose in the slot

for summer drinking, while its

power will readily complement

food.

www.aurumwines.com

2020 Durvillea

Marlborough rose

Price: $20

Rating: Very good to excellent

Pale, peachy pink hue.

Attractive fragrance with

strawberries and cream. Dried

strawberry, pink grapefruit, gum

and musk are joined on the palate

by a wisp of savouriness.

Builds surprising power and

richness, a sour cherry/cranberry

nuance providing a counter to the

sweet fruit.

An apricot kernel bittersweet

note adds to the lip-smacking

close.

2020 The Vegan Wine

Project South Australian

rose

Price: $18-$19

Rating: Excellent

Onion skin shade. Subtle

at first, but quickly sees sweet

fragrance, fruit sherbet,

strawberry and rhubarb crumble

notes build.

Drier than the nose might

suggest, the cool and racy

palate highlighting strawberry,

rockmelon and green herb hints.

Refreshing interplay between

the growing sweet fruit and tangy

acidity.

Appealing style with lovely

crispness.

www.theveganwineproject.com

2020 Jules Taylor The

Jules Rose

Price: $24.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Pale rose petal shade. Spicy,

smoker’s lolly, turkish delight, red

berries.

A touch of sweetness leads,

mixed summer berries and

cream followed by a toffee apple

hint. Nice flavour weight and

integration, a subtle hint of

sweetness, while still fresh, juicy

and crisp with a relatively dry

finish. I can see a lot of consumer

appeal here.

www.julestaylor.com

2020 Otuwhero Estate

Hawke’s Bay rose

Price: $19.95

Rating: Very good to excellent

Rose with a copper tinge.

Savoury at first, sweeter fragrance

growing, rose petal, a wisp of

gooseberry.

Crunchy and bright in the

mouth, sweeter fruits hinting at

summer berries, a little lavender.

This builds nicely with aeration,

showing a touch more sweetness,

yet finishing relatively dry and

crisp. Very easy drinking.

www.otuwine.com

2019 Invivo SJP Sud de

France rose

Price: $19.99

Rating: Excellent

Invivo’s collaboration with

Sarah Jessica Parker.

Palest onion skin hue. Beguiling

nose, umami and earth hints

shifting to cream, stonefruit and

spices. Really tangy, crisp palate,

racy acidity driving this. Ripe yet

not sweet with mandarin/pink

grapefruit notes.

Mouthwatering close. High on

the refreshment factor and a great

food choice.

www.invivowines.com

2019 Saint Clair Pinot gris

rose

Price: $20

Rating: Excellent

Peachy onion skin hue.

Intriguing nose, herbs and river

stones at first, moving to ripe

peach, spices and perfume.

After the delicacy of the nose,

there’s a burst of flavour on the

palate with stonefruits, musk,

wine gums and boiled sweets with

zesty acidity keeping this fresh

and crisp.

A juicy, long, lip-smacking

finish. Drinking superbly now.

www.saintclair.co.nz

2019 Ngatarawa

Glazebrook Black Label

Hawke’s Bay rose

Price: $25

Rating: Very good

Orange/onion skin hue. Smoke,

wildness, tilled earth spices.

Brooding palate with power

and weight, the berryfruit notes

growing as it opens up.

A quinine like bittersweet

element brings things to a zesty

close. With its powerful build,

this would complement richer

summer foods: a nice foil to a

barbecue perhaps?

Roast pork from the oven or rotisserie

Cook your Christmas

pork a little differently

this year, after all, 2020

has been very different.

And for Boxing Day

brunch, try macaroni

cheese with a difference

Hornado de chancho

marinated roast pork leg

Ingredients

4½ kg pork, leg, boned and

rolled (ask your butcher to do

this for you)

2 tbsp ground cumin

2 tbsp sea salt

1½ tbsp ground paprika

2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

4 limes, juice only

3 bottles lager, 330ml each

80g butter, melted

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

effortless, fun meal for Boxing Day.

Directions

Use a small sharp knife to score

the skin of the pork and make several

deep incisions in the pork leg.

Place in a non-reactive tray.

Combine the garlic, cumin, salt,

paprika and pepper in a bowl.

Pour the lime juice over the

pork and rub into all sides, then

rub the spiced garlic paste over the

pork, pushing it into the incisions.

Cover and leave to marinate in

the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.

Pour the beer over the pork,

cover and return to the refrigerator

to marinate for a further 12 to

24 hours, turning occasionally so

that the leg marinates evenly.

If you don’t have a rotisserie the

park will cook in a normal oven

using the same time frame.

Preheat a gas barbecue fitted

with a rotisserie to 200 deg C. All

the burners should be turned to

medium.

Insert the rotisserie rod lengthwise

through the leg of pork,

ensuring the pork leg is evenly

balanced. Secure the rotisserie spit

according to the manufacturer’s

instructions.

Turn off the burners directly underneath

the pork, leaving the side

burners on medium. Place a drip

tray filled with 1cm water underneath

the pork.

Baste the pork with the melted

butter. Reduce the heat to 180 deg

C and cook the pork for 1½ to 2

hours, or until the skin is crisp and

golden brown and the meat is just

cooked through. Test with a skewer,

the juices should run clear.

Use barbecue mitts to remove

the rotisserie rod. Take the pork

off the rod and place on a large

tray.

Cover with foil and set aside to

rest for 10 minutes.

Cut into slices and serve with

peruvian onion salsa, brazilian

rice, and grilled red capsicum.

Macaroni and cauliflower

cheese

Ingredients

1 cauliflower

1 1/2 cups macaroni

cheese

white sauce

2 drops worcestershire sauce

pinch salt

Sliced tomato to decorate

1 bacon bits, (optional)

Directions

Banch the cauliflower.

Cook the macaroni in salted

water until tender.

Make a simple white sauce and

melt a good amount of cheese into

it. A little worcestershire sauce

helps boost the flavour.

Sit the macaroni and cauliflower

in a baking dish.

Pour over the cheesy sauce and

gently mix through the contents.

You could add grilled bacon

pieces.

Decorate with some tomato

slices, add a little more grated

cheese to the top and bake in a

moderate oven until brown and

bubbling.

New Yaris buyer faces tough decisions

MAKE NO MISTAKE, Toyota’s

new hatchback Yaris is everything

you would want – cheeky styling,

fuel efficiency and value pricing.

However, there is a challenge

facing any potential buyer, that

being the hybrid is the best in

the series, and that may be a step

too far price-wise for those in the

budget car market.

I base those comments on the

three drives I’ve had in the new

Yaris, I’ve driven two petrol-only

models and a hybrid, and the latter

wins out with its economy and

driving experience, the connection

to electric power makes for

effortless motoring.

Now, I’m not saying the

petrol-only model isn’t worth

consideration, I still like it, and

most of that is because its threecylinder

engine is also thrifty and

truly delightful in terms of honesty.

This evaluation focuses on the

high-spec ZR variant which lists

at $29,990, an extra $3000 buying

you into the hybrid. Bear in mind,

too, that the range starts at $25,990

for the GX petrol model which

I evaluated in these columns in

September. It is also available in

hybrid form at $27,990.

All models have the same basic

petrol powerplant – a 1.5-litre

unit that, as I’ve mentioned, it only

has three combustion chambers.

Regular readers will recall my

enthusiasm for that layout and in

recent years many manufacturers

have opted for that configuration.

To me it makes a lot of sense, the

less reciprocating mass you have

the more efficient and smooth the

engine becomes.

However, those who do go the

three-cylinder way will need to

keep in mind that it is an experience

just that little bit different, there are

sounds that are foreign to that of say,

a four-cylinder engine of the same

capacity there is a distinctive tone

and the Yaris buyer in all forms will

need to adjust to that.

In petrol form it is listed with

an 88kW power output and

145Nm of torque. These figures are

relatively healthy for its capacity,

and if you take into account that

it is small and light at just 4m and

1075kg respectively, the five-door

hatchback feels nimble and is no

slouch against the clock. You can

expect a standstill to 100km/h

acceleration time of around 10sec

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

On the subject of figures Toyota

claims a 4.9-litre per 100km

combined cycle fuel usage average.

That’s a bold claim, but it is one

that is within target. I took the

evaluation car on a long highway

loop, and on the open road

straights the fuel usage readout was

TOYOTA YARIS ZR: Petrol-only model has tough

competition from its hybrid stablemate.

listing 4l/100km instantaneously

at 100km/h. That resulted in a

dash display average of 5.5l/100km

when I took the test car back to

the dealership, which is not that far

distant from Toyota’s claim.

Of course, those figures are

nowhere near those of the hybrid

with its 3.3l/100km, but I wasn’t

disappointed given that on

occasion I allowed the wee engine

to work freely towards the top end.

Drive is sent to the front wheels

through a continuously variable

transmission, this is fast becoming

Toyota’s gearbox of choice in

the models it offers that are

earmarked for efficiency. In the

ZR-spec petrol-only Yaris there

are paddle-shifters which will lock

the transmission into any one of

10 pre-set steps. That function is

useful when slowing for corners, or

for inclines, up or down.

The CVT ratio has been

structured to provide that

reasonable acceleration to highway

speed, and once there the engine is

relaxed at 100km/h, turning over

slowly at 2000rpm.

Aimed at the twists and turns

out of the Waimakariri River gorge

bridge, the Yaris felt sprightly and

agile. The chassis isn’t disturbed

by mid-corner bumps or road

deviations, the suspension does

a good job of controlling body

balance.

The Yaris is also a comfortable

car for four adults; it’s a bit of a

squeeze width-wise for three adults

in the rear, and leg room depends

totally on how far back the front

seat passengers have their seats, but

there’s no shortage of head room, it

is clever in the way it translates its

limited space into occupant comfort.

In ZR spec, the Yaris gets a

good level of fitment that should

please the budget-conscious buyer

and those who rate safety as a key

ingredient. To that end, when

• Price – Toyota Yaris ZR,

$29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

3940mm; width, 1695mm;

height, 1500mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1490cc, 88kW,

145Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.8sec

• Fuel usage – 4.9l/100km

crash tested, the series should

easily earn a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

rating, thanks to the Toyota

SafetySense suite of technologies.

There are too many features to

mention in detail, but I particularly

like the head-up display and radar

cruise control.

My daughter works for an

organisation that has at least a

dozen Yaris’ – mostly all white

– that are used as pool cars on

a daily basis. I told her they will

probably be replaced in time with

the newcomer. She’s hoping some

of the trendy colours Toyota is

offering in the new model will be

incorporated into the fleet.

I hope that when that time comes

some would be hybrids, but if not,

then the petrol-only model is still a

very worthy consideration.

Just as you would expect from

Toyota, the new Yaris is a smart car

and one which pleases in all forms,

you can expect it to last forever and

at the same time be charmed at

every drive with that delightful wee

engine up front.

REAL ESTATE

Risque, Renowned and Rich with History

15 Voelas Rd, Lyttelton

Asking price $669,000

3 bedrooms 1 bathrooms 2 car garage

Listing no. OPA25226

ADVERTISING FEATURE

If the walls of this historic villa could talk, they

would have stories to tell, they undoubtedly

hold secrets. Dating back to the 1880s,this

period residence is timeless in design and

offers exceptional views over the Harbour and

the newly built Te Ana Marina.

While it is well-suited as a family or first home,

this hasn't always been the case. Previously, it

was reserved as a place of pleasure having

famously operated as the local Massage Parlour,

and then conversely was the residence of a

Lyttelton Police Officer.

Timber floors, leadlight windows, the charming

verandah and the home's high ceilings all serve

as elegant reminders of the past. Due to the

home's era, it could naturally benefit from some

upgrades, and buyers will appreciate that they

can live incredibly comfortably while deciding

how they will refresh the decor and ultimately

add value to the property.

Arranged across two floors, the layout is

exceedingly practical and includes an open

plan kitchen, dining and family area on the

ground floor which is complemented by a

separate lounge that enjoys the warmth of a

new pellet fire. A study, bedroom and the

bathroom are also placed downstairs while the

remaining two bedrooms are positioned

upstairs. Toilet facilities are conveniently

located on each level.

Contemporary comfort has been introduced

in the form of a heat pump that provides

comfort throughout the year. The kitchen and

bathroom are both highly functional but

would respond superbly to modernisation.

Located only a short stroll from London Street

with its bespoke shops, cafes and eateries, it's

also near Lyttelton Primary School which

broadens the home's appeal.

This property is well-recognised in the

community and has been home to many locals,

so if you wish to secure a distinctive slice of

history, then you are advised to act quickly.
