PROTECTING the Port

Hills from future fires and

boosting native bird numbers

is behind a major tree planting

programme planned for winter.

The Summit Road Society

has received a $20,000 grant

from the city council’s

sustainability fund for the

project which

will see more

than 87,000

native trees

and shrubs

planted in the

Avoca Valley

in Heathcote.

Said

president Bill Woods: “Once the

trees are established into their

normal cycle, they will flower

and produce seeds which will

encourage more native bird life

to the area.”

The sustainability fund was

established in August as part

of the city council’s goals to

combat the impacts of climate

change, including reducing

greenhouse gas emissions

and building environmental

resilience.

Sumner

beach rip

continues

to keep

lifesavers

busy

• By Samantha Mythen

TWENTY-SEVEN PEOPLE

were rescued in 10 minutes when

they were caught in a flash rip at

Sumner.

Surf lifesavers worked in messy

1.5m-plus surf to get the swimmers

out of the water. The rip

knocked many unsuspecting

people off their feet.

Said Surf Life Saving southern

region manager Chris Jeffery:

“Sumner is a beach like no

other. It receives many changing

currents from the estuary; one

minute they’re sending swimmers

left to right and then, the next

minute, they’re sending swimmers

in the opposite direction.

“Our team of volunteers and

staff are consistently watching this

and are always working to keep

the public safe.

“The lifeguards are doing

everything to make the water

as safe as possible but it is still

important that the individual

knows their swimming ability

and limits,” Jeffery said.

Full steam ahead for tug boat excursions

• By Samantha Mythen

TRIPS ON THE historic tug

boat Lyttelton are expected to

be very popular when they start

again in two weeks.

The public excursions will take

place every Sunday from January

24, weather permitting, until

Easter weekend.

The tug was booked out over

Christmas, hosting chartered

end-of-year work parties.

But this month will see the

first public sailings since March

last year after

Covid-19 kept

the boat in its

berth.

With most

Kiwis having

to stay in

New Zealand

Roger Ellery

this summer,

it is hoped

people will take an interest in tug

Lyttelton.

“We had sell-out sailings last

year pre-Covid, so we are hoping

for another great response this

year. People are interested in

the tug’s unique heritage,” said

Roger Ellery, of the Tug Lyttelton

Preservation Society.

The tug will depart at 2.30pm

from the No 2 wharf, cruising

around the harbour and out to

Lyttelton Heads. It will return to

dock at 4pm.

HISTORY: Tug Lyttelton leaves the port on a trip into the harbour. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

During the trips, a historian

provides a running commentary

on the tug and its history.

“Inside Lyttelton, the wheel

house provides a fun experience.

You can witness how the captain

runs the show and co-ordinates

with the engine room below

deck,” said Ellery.

“When the captain decides to

change the propellers’ settings,

they have to signal down to the

engine room via a telegraph

system.

“The engineers acknowledge

this and then start working to

ensure the captain gets what he

wants.”

Another highlight will

be a visit to the engine room,

where passengers will be able to

see the stokers’ shovelling coal

into the boilers, ensuring enough

steam is produced for the tug to

run.

Maintained and managed by

the Tug Lyttelton Preservation

Society, the steam-powered vessel

is more than 100-years-old

after being established in 1907.

A large amount of preparation

goes in to getting Lyttelton sea

ready.

“Each year, Lyttelton undergoes

an annual survey where she

is looked at in dry dock. The hull

is cleaned.

“The propellers get taken off

and checked for any cracks or

damage. A lot of maintenance is

carried out on the boilers,” said

Ellery.

Previously, tickets were on

sale at the wharf, but due to new

Covid-19 protective measures,

online bookings will now be

essential.

•For ticket prices, visit

www.tuglyttelton.co.nz. They

will be available later this

week

Akaroa’s hat-trick and batting maestro

SCALP: Inderjett Waraich and Stephen Fleming after

the Akaroa-based all-rounder claimed the former

Black Caps’ skipper’s wicket.

• By Chris Barclay

INDERJEET WARAICH used

to be a net bowler who offered

teammates technical advice after

tossing up some gentle medium

pace to boost their egos.

Turns out he is not as benevolent

to an opposition, given the Akaroabased

Indian all-rounder took backto-back

hat-tricks for Halswell in

the Metro Division One Twenty20

competition.

Waraich recorded the milestones

this season against Heathcote

and Sydenham. He also claimed

two wickets to close out his spell

in another clash with Heathcote

before Christmas.

“I used to bowl to make the

batters more confident,” he

explained.

“Sometimes your teammates

need to learn a little bit more. If

there are problems for me when

I go batting, I can’t notice myself

what I’m doing, but the bowler

can.”

Eventually the 26-year-old upped

his pace and mastered in and outswing.

Five of his hat-trick victims

were bowled.

Those batsmen are in good

company, with former New

Zealand captain Stephen Fleming

another to fall to Waraich’s guile.

Fleming was caught out – literally

– when he misjudged the Punjabi’s

pace during an All-Star game

against Queenstown’s T20 players

at Arrowtown in 2019.

“He thought I was going to bowl

spin but I bowled quick and he was

caught at mid-on,” Waraich smiled.

Still, stroke-making is Waraich’s

forte, with the top order batsman’s

output suggesting he might be

equipped to step up to senior grade

in 2021-22.

He is on the brink of tallying 800

runs across the T20 and one-day

formats. After nine rounds of the

50-over schedule his aggregate of

472 at 52.44 is 112 runs clear of his

closest rival.

Waraich has two one-day tons

and he also slugged 324 runs in 10

T20 knocks at 54 and a strike rate

of 129.60.

Ironically, Waraich would

not be starring for Heathcote

had Covid-19 not ended his

housekeeping job at a Queenstown

hotel, a setback that forced his

return to Christchurch in May, the

city he landed in from India as a

student in 2015.

Waraich started playing in a

lower grade T20 competition for

Sydenham and then switched to

Halswell before his move south.

“I was not playing that serious

(in Queenstown), now I’m mentally

prepared,” said Waraich, who

doesn’t train with this side because

he lives in Akaroa.

“At home I try and focus on

what I can do at the ground. You

will laugh but I put out my bat

and when I walk past it, it reminds

me I’m going to make some more

runs.”

Halswell president Mike

Chatterton was rapt to have

Waraich back in the side but

accepted he may be playing

elsewhere next summer.

“If he wanted to play seniors he

could. I’m more than happy to push

his case,” he said.

Waraich was also open to

promotion, though admits living

in Akaroa could be problematic in

terms of actual training during the

week.

“I am ready to take any challenge,

I would take the chance but I would

need to spend more time on my

cricket,” he conceded.

Avoca Valley’s ecosystem

to benefit from plantings

• From page 1

The planting of native

vegetation is set to offer

long-lasting environmental

benefits to Avoca Valley.

Woods hoped it would

invigorate more insects

and invertebrate, creating a

thriving ecosystem.

The planting will mainly

be carried out in the Upper

Avoca Valley but the

society would also like to

plant in the lower Avoca

Valley.

“This area is currently

primarily covered in gorse

which can be used to create

a protective nursery to help

establish the newly-planted

natives,” Woods said.

“Our intention is not to

cover the area in trees to

reflect how it was 10,000

years ago. Rather, the new

native foliage will be predominantly

fire retardant

to help protect the Port

Hills.”

• By Samantha

A FURTHER four

projects based in

have received

grants from the

city council’s

Sustainability

Fund.

The Diamond

Association

on behalf of

Friends of Morgan’s

and Sam’s

Gullies, received

$3000 for the

restoration of indigenous

biodiversity along the

walkways and gullies of

the city council-owned

land.

This group of local

volunteers is hoping to

transform the gullies into

native forests thriving

with indigenous bird and

insect life.

Said city councillor and

PREVENTION: The native vegetation to be

planted in Avoca Valley will be fire retardant.

The society is made up

of volunteers who work to

maintain the existing areas

in the Port Hills under

their care.

“We are calling on new

volunteers to help with this

project. The society’s aim is

to encourage and promote

natural growth of native

vegetation on the Port

Hills for people to enjoy,”

Woods said.

Planting is set to begin

at the start of winter.

planting, a maintenance

programme will be put in

“It is really

clear that more

is clear that native species

are much more fire resistant

than others which is

fantastic.”

Three projects in the

Little River locality also

received funds for their

sustainable objectives.

The Little River Campground

was granted $2625

Wine

Malbec plantings have increased with popularity

• By Mark Henderson

THE RED GRAPE malbec is a

native of France, where it is best

known as one of the “so-called”

Bordeaux varieties, which is made

up by cabernet sauvignon, merlot,

cabernet franc, petit verdot,

carmenere and malbec.

Widely planted in Bordeaux in

the 1800s, the devastation caused

by the vine louse phylloxera saw

plantings diminish significantly.

The savage frost of 1956 then

almost dealt the coup de grace

with plantings further decimated

and replaced by cabernet

sauvignon and merlot.

More recently the variety

has begun to regain favour and

plantings have slowly climbed

once more.

The variety may have an even

longer history in Cahors in southwest

France where, unusually,

SOIL AND

HARDFILL

DUMPING

malbec is the dominant grape

variety – appellation rules

requiring a minimum of 70 per

cent malbec in the finished wine

and where plantings comprise

roughly 50 per cent of the French

total.

It often flies solo here, but can

also be blended with tannat and

other varieties.

Malbec is also found in the

Loire under its synonym cot.

All these pale into comparison

with Argentina, where this grape

variety has become the figurehead

for the local industry.

The north-western region of

Mendoza is a powerhouse of

grape growing and winemaking,

producing nearly three-quarters

of all the wine in Argentina.

Increasing volumes are being

imported here, where its modest

price and generous flavours are

finding many converts.

In New Zealand, it is mostly

seen as the supporting act in

blends such as cabernet malbec

or merlot malbec and barely a

handful of producers making

a varietal version. Its 111ha

(according to New Zealand

Winegrower figures) makes it

our fifth most widely planted red

grape variety, with roughly 75 per

cent found in Hawke’s Bay.

Deeply coloured, it has plum

flavours similar to merlot, often

with an earthy or slightly “rustic”

twist and powerful tannins.

2017 Pegasus Bay malbec

Price: $32.50

Rating: Very good to excellent

Fascinating, brooding nose

with earth, forest floor and dark

fruit characters, cigar box too.

There’s an intriguing rusticity

here, leafy, forest floor notes and

earthiness, powerful fruits and

excellent tannic backbone.

This really grows on me, built

for the future while developing

textural richness and a long

close.

I may be underscoring this.

Lifeboat

called to

motorboat

rescue

• From page 1

The December 21 rescue has

been the only major incident

so far on either Sumner or

Taylors Mistake beaches this

summer.

Meanwhile, three people on

a small motorboat anchored

off Whitewash Head, activated

their emergency beacon about

9am on Sunday.

They were at risk of sinking

after their boat had taken on

water. Eleven crew from the

Sumner Lifeboat Institution

responded, sending out their

jet ski, followed by their twin

jet ski.

After delivering the boat’s

crew safely to shore, the twin

jet ski, called Blue Arrow

Rescue, returned to the

waterlogged boat and towed it

back to the boat station.

Bid to protect farmland vegetation

THE PUBLIC have the

opportunity to share their views

on the protection of native

vegetation on coastal farmlands

in the Banks Peninsula this

month.

The city council is proposing

a change to the District Plan

regarding clearing of indigenous

vegetation in existing pastures.

It is calling for feedback from

the public, alongside contacting

owners of coastal property who

may be directly impacted by the

changes.

Council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths says the draft changes

relating to vegetation will only

affect property owners who clear

native trees and plants as part of

farming activities to maintain

existing pasture for grazing

livestock.

“The proposed changes seek to

limit the clearance of indigenous

vegetation within improved

pasture on Banks Peninsula

and the Port Hills to ensure

potentially significant native

trees and plants are not removed

without a resource consent,”

Griffiths said.

“We want to refine the meaning

of ‘improved pasture’ so it

can be more easily applied by

landowners when indigenous

vegetation is cleared, and ensure

compliance with existing limits

or the need for resource consent

in tandem with recognition of

areas of significance.”

For inquiries phone the city

council on 941 8999 and ask to

speak to Craig Davison about

the proposal.

Council staff will also be

available at drop-in sessions

being held from 5pm to 7pm at

the Gaiety Hall in Akaroa on

January 26, and the Diamond

Harbour Rugby Clubrooms on

January 28.

Feedback is open until 5pm on

February 23.

THE AVON-Heathcote Estuary

has been the target of many

grand schemes in the past.

Some of them such as a saltworks

and a flying boat base

would really have spoilt the view

of hillside residents if they had

happened.

One of the most ambitious

was Port Christchurch; a mole

and a canal stretching from

Sumner Head (Scarborough)

through to wet docks near the

old Lancaster Park.

Businessmen at the start of

the last century were concerned

about the high price of moving

goods through the railway tunnel

from Lyttelton. A new port

was proposed so ships could land

freight closer to the city.

The docks were planned for

the Wilsons Rd area. To get to

the docks, ships would travel

along a canal that would be 80m

wide and up to 8m deep at high

ESTUARY MATTERS

Failed proposal prevents port project at estuary

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust is a non-profit organisation

formed to protect one of New

Zealand’s most important coastal

wetlands. Each week, board members

will discuss matters regarding the

estuary, its rich history and what makes

it unique. This week Bill Simpson writes

about the failed bid to use the estuary

as a port for ships

tide (6.5m at low tide). The canal

would stretch for several kilometres

from Scarborough Head,

through the current Sumner Bar,

past Moncks Bay and McCormacks

Bay, through Ferrymead

and to the docks.

A mole from Southshore Spit

to Scarborough would protect

the canal. Sediment dredged to

make the canal would be used to

reclaim at least half the estuary.

Consultants reported back in

1908 that the cost of this project

AMBITIOUS: The Avon-

Heathcote Estuary could

have been turned into a

shipping port if the project

was not canned in the early

1900s. ​

would have been more than two

million pounds.

The Christchurch Canal

League was formed to push the

proposal. The Harbour Board

was divided on whether it should

go ahead or not.

A team of three independent

engineers was commissioned to

investigate further and their verdict,

thankfully, was against the

scheme because of the expense.

There are many hillside

residents who would like to

thank those three engineers

for preserving their view of the

estuary.

Van ready for work in courier business

I USED TO have regular packages

delivered to my home by courier.

The driver was also a regular, and

was local to my neighbourhood.

I still see him from time to time

driving the yellow Mitsubishi L300

van, although it is no longer used

for commercial purposes.

That van is looking a bit tired

nowadays, and I’m only guessing,

but I figure it’s probably done about

a million miles. That’s the way

those vans were built, they were

tough and engineered for reliability

and longevity.

Of course, the L300 has long

gone, and Mitsubishi Motors New

Zealand has been without a van for

many years, that is until now.

Sharing an alliance with Renault,

Mitsubishi globally has introduced

the Express van; basically it’s a

Renault Master/Traffic rebadged.

That makes little difference,

that vehicle also has a fearsome

reputation in the light commercial

market, and with Mitsubishi’s

marketing prowess it will do well

with the newcomer; there’s an everincreasing

demand for light vans

and in this age of internet shopping

and delivery, courier companies are

feeling the heat, with that, additional

drivers and vans, are in demand.

The Express van arrives here

in two variants, both with fourcylinder

engines. Put simply, there’s

a choice of manual or automatic

transmissions, both six-speed units.

The manual is hooked to a twinturbo

1.6-litre diesel, the automatic

with a single-turbo 2-litre diesel.

The evaluation was the latter, it

sits in the market at $52,990, the

manual will save you $5k.

I’ve driven many vans over the

years – Mercedes-Benz Viano,

Fiat Ducato, Hyundai I-Load,

Ford Transit, Toyota Hilux and the

L300 – it’s fair to say the Express is

one of the most refined, it is quiet,

comfortable and almost car-like.

A lot of that has to do with

the bulk-head construction

of the vehicle, the van area is

completely separated from the

cabin compartment, there’s little

rumble from the cargo section,

and the driving position, although

upright, won’t tax the body during

a long day of deliveries. Sure, it’s

a bit of a step up into the cabin,

CAVERNOUS: Low load height makes placing items in the

cargo section easy.

MITSUBISHI EXPRESS: Choice of two engines and transmissions.

certainly not made easier by old

age, but once there, the seats have

good support. Incidentally, there

are three seats, although individual,

they do represent a bench seat type

of configuration.

The cabin section is full of clever

compartments and ideas to make

commercial use easy. I particularly

like the workstation and clipboard

holder that sits upright and extends

from the middle seat back rest

and can be folded flat. What’s not

so clever is the central cup holder

which won’t hold your Coke bottle

when gravitational force takes over

– that required a bit of a clean-up

job. Thankfully, easy to remove

rubber mats made that job easy.

As an aside, the Express is also

entering a mild-facelift phase and

some of the interior features are

receiving an upgrade, centre dash

display panel will be introduced

and it will include touch screen

audio.

As you would expect from a

European-sourced vehicle, the

Express van is high on safety, there

are five air bags, electronic stability

control, and rear view reversing

camera.

In terms of load space,

Mitsubishi rates the Express with

a 5.2m3 cargo area, it also gets

around an 1150kg payload rating

and a 1715kg braked towing

capacity. In simple terms, it will

also take a standard NZ pallet

or Gib sheet between the wheel

• Price – Mitsubishi Express,

$52,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4999mm; width, 1956mm;

height, 1971mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1997cc, 125kW,

380Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10sec

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km

arches, there’s also an under-seat

flap which opens on the passenger

side so that long lengths of material

can be carried. Loading can be

made from the wide-opening rear

doors or from the sliders on each

side. One of the features I made

good use of was the multitude of

cargo rings that can be utilised to

tie down loads.

There’s plenty of power to haul

that big load. The 1997cc engine

is rated at 125kW (3500rpm)

with 380Nm of torque available

from 1500rpm. The automatic

gearbox is a dual clutch type and

that allows extra engine flexibility,

the combination is fluid and

responsive. Of course, the van’s

main function is that of load

capacity, so the entire driveline is

geared for that. Incidentally, drive

is sent to the front wheels.

Such is the smooth operating

manner of the engine, it’s hard to

tell that there’s diesel power, until

you look at the fuel consumption

figures. Mitsubishi rates it with

a 7.3l/100km combined cycle

average, during my testing time the

readouts were hovering close to

that at 8l/100km and 6.7l/100km

instantaneously at 100km/h, the

engine turning over slowly at

1900rpm.

Interestingly, the Express van

comes with an 80-litre tank, it

was full of fuel when I picked it

up and the fuel usage readout was

indicating an achievable distance

of 800km, the fuel gauge was also

showing nearly full after travelling

well over 200km during my time in

the vehicle.

In terms of open road

performance the Express moves

quietly and effortlessly, I drove it

as I would a car and found it stable

and balanced through the corners.

You have take into consideration its

construction and, of course, it’s not

dynamic, but it does have a certain

amount of handling prowess, it

won’t catch you out if a corner is

presented just that little bit quicker

than you had anticipated.

After a week in my care, I

became quite attached to the

Express van and it’s fair to say I

made good use of its load carrying

capacity, completing a multitude

of different household tasks. The

low load height making those jobs

very easy.
