Lyttelton residents

up in arms over

Ōtautahi

flags on

port streets

• By Samantha Mythen

LYTTELTON residents are

concerned over the new

Ōtautahi and Christchurchnamed

flags lining the port’s

streets.

The flags were recently put

up as part of ChristchurchNZ’s

overall city image work.

ChristchurchNZ is the city

council’s tourism, marketing

and economic development

arm.

People say the flags should

reflect the area with wording of

Lyttelton and Ōhinehou, Lyttelton’s

te reo Māori name.

Feedback from local residents

grabbed the attention of Banks

Peninsula Ward city councillor

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner.

Turner has lived in Lyttelton

since 2003.

“Lyttelton is distinct

from Christchurch, both

geographically and culturally;

it is a Banks Peninsula town

not a Christchurch suburb. It’s

similar to Akaroa, despite

being part of the wider

Christchurch City Council

area,” he said.

The most important issue

to Turner is respecting Māori

culture.

Walkway accessing marina open

YOU CAN now walk, cycle,

run or scooter directly from

Norwich Quay in Lyttelton to

Te Ana Marina.

The pathway from Norwich

Quay along Sutton Quay

includes two pedestrian

crossings. This creates a

direct link from Lyttelton to

Te Ana Marina, Canterbury’s

only walk-on floating

marina.

The new development is

part of Lyttelton Port Company’s

commitment to open

the west side of the harbour

as a space for the community

to enjoy.

When the project was announced

last year, Deputy

Mayor and city councillor for

the Banks Peninsula Ward

Andrew Turner said he was

excited to see the Lyttelton

community gain additional

access to the waterfront.

“Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour is a special place to

many people.

“I’m looking forward to

seeing more families and

visitors down on the waterfront

this summer – this is

the perfect spot for a picnic, a

walk along the promenade or

a chance to take in the stunning

harbour views.”

LPC’s general manager engagement

and sustainability

Phil de Joux said since Te

Ana Marina was opened by

the port in 2018, it has been

fantastic to see the community

use the recreational area as

a space to connect and enjoy.

“Before the pathway was

in place, there was no pedestrian

access from Sutton

Quay to Te Ana Marina,

meaning people either used

the stairs from Simeon

Quay to the back of Te Ana

Marina, or walked down to

Godley Quay.

“We’re thrilled to be able to

make accessing Te Ana Marina

that little bit easier for the

community and visitors to

Lyttelton, and look forward

to seeing more people enjoy

the waterfront.”

Due to the construction of

the pathway, the Sutton Quay

gate has been relocated. This

gate is used by a number of

port operators to access inner

harbour operations such as

fishing vessels.

Vehicles will still use Sutton

Quay to access the port

and users of the walkway are

being told to follow signage

in place and to stay alert

when using the crossings.

CONVENIENT: Lyttelton resident

Annabel, 10, (right) who lives on the

west side of the harbour, can use

the new path to walk to school, as

well as visit her friend Lulu, 10, who

lives in Lyttelton. ​

Retaining wall

work to start

ROADWORKS along Simeon Quay

and Coleridge Tce in Lyttelton are

set to cause disruption for the next

few months.

Work will start early next month

to replace the ageing retaining wall

that supports part of Simeon Quay.

A new concrete wall will be put in

place and the quay will be partially

reconstructed. It is expected to take

between four to six months to complete,

weather dependent.

City council head of transport,

Richard Osborne said: “The

contractor is going to have crews

working around the clock on the

project. On some nights, Simeon

Quay will be reduced to one lane

and traffic will be controlled by

stop/go signs. This will cause

delays, particularly for west-bound

traffic.”

A retaining wall supporting

Coleridge Tce will also be replaced

starting in February, expected to

take around 16 weeks to complete.

During this time, access to the terrace

will only be via the west end,

by London St.

A traffic management plan will

be put in place and road users are

being told to expect delays.

“If you live in Lyttelton or travel

through the area, please bear that

in mind as you may need to factor

some extra journey time into your

plans,” said Osborne.

Extra care called for after rescues

• By Samantha Mythen

BEWARE OF rips. Swim

between the flags. Know your

limits.

That is the message from the

Taylors Mistake and Sumner

Surf Life Saving Clubs as temperatures

soar this week.

It comes after two people

were lucky not to have died in

separate incidents at Taylors

Mistake on Sunday,

January 17.

Instead they

were saved by

the quick thinking

of the club

team members.

Tisha

Bradley

The first

rescue happend

in the early

afternoon, with the conditions

changing drastically as the tide

went out. The second rescue

happened at 4.50pm, with

10min left until the volunteers

usually retire for the day.

In both instances, the swimmers

were taken to hospital by

ambulance.

After the rescues, the

lifeguards carried out

preventative actions; moving

the flags, advising swimmers

of where the rips were running

and working in the water to

direct people away.

Surf club captain Tisha Bradley

said: “These actions mitigated

the risk of mishap and

the need for further rescues.

“We are hugely proud of the

work of the rostered patrol

team on Sunday, as well as the

additional members who recognised

the growing risks on

the beach and joined with the

existing patrol to ensure that

we had an increased capacity.

“This was a wonderful example

of the club coming together

as one to keep our community

safe. We are a humble wee club,

but in these moments we

are super proud of how our

volunteers respond in difficult

situations.”

The club would also like to

thank the public who acknowledged

their efforts on Sunday.

“It means a lot to us when

the community acknowledges

our volunteers and the valuable

work that they do,” said

Bradley.

Meanwhile, Sumner Surf

Life Saving Club was awarded

second place in the BP Rescue

of the Month awards for a

rescue in December.

Twenty-seven swimmers

were rescued from a rip in 10

minutes.

The winners are selected

committee, and second

place receives $300 of BP gift

vouchers.

Further water

restrictions

WATER restrictions have been

increased from level 2 to level

3 for Akaroa, Duvauchelle and

Takamatua as increasingly hot and

windy conditions put pressure on

water supplies.

Level 3 restrictions means

hand-held hosing only on alternate

days, with no outdoor water

use on any day between 3-9pm.

Unattended hoses, sprinklers, and

garden irrigation systems are not

permitted at any time.

Akaroa’s cumulative rainfall this

year is the lowest it has been in a

decade, putting extra pressure on

the town’s water supply which it

shares with Takamatua. Its current

total rainfall for the year sits at

about half the 10-year average.

Water is being used from backup

bores and from streams.

“But in order to ensure a fair

and uninterrupted water supply to

people living, working and visiting

in the areas, we need to further

reduce the demand by moving to

Level 3 water restrictions,” a city

council spokeswoman said.

Residents at odd-numbered

addresses can water lawns or

gardens before 3pm or after 9pm

on odd dates (1st, 3rd, 15th, etc),

while residents at even-numbered

addresses can water before 3pm or

after 9pm on even dates.

yoga pose

of the month

Standing Leg Raise

Standing Leg Raise is a great pose to build

balance, posture, length in your hamstrings

and strength in your hip flexors.

1. Stand upright with your feet together.

2. Draw your right knee up towards your chest

and lightly hold your right knee with your

right hand. Use the strength of your leg

more than the strength of your hand to hold

your right leg up. If you are more flexible,

bind the outer edge of your right foot and

extend your right leg straight forward in

front of you.

3. Straighten your left leg by engaging your

thigh muscles to the bone.

4. Draw the pit of your belly in towards your

spine.

5. Expand your chest and upper back.

6. If you are holding your foot, draw your right

shoulder straight back level with your left

shoulder.

7. Straighten your

back, hold your head

high and set your gaze

straight in front of you.

8. After 5 breaths, turn your

right leg out towards the

right side of your room and

turn your head to face the

left.

9. Keep your hips level in this

second stage. Do not hike

your right hip higher than

your left hip.

10. After five more

breaths return

your right leg straight forward, lower your

right foot to the earth and repeat the pose

on the other leg.

In Standing Leg Raise, build a blend of strength and mobility in your legs, align your body neutrally

and generate a sense of confidence that permeates from your bones and radiates out to your skin

and beyond.

• From page 1

“The main issue is the appropriateness

of Ōtautahi, as the

name for Christchurch, being

used beyond the traditional

Christchurch area and expanding

into Banks Peninsula, especially

when Lyttelton is Ōhinehou and

the harbour is Te Whakaraupō.”

Turner discussed the community’s

concerns with ChristchurchNZ

this week.

“I asked ChristchurchNZ to

take advice and consider whether

the use of the specific Ōtautahi

flags are appropriate for Lyttelton.

And if not, then they need

to decide what flags should fly

instead.’’

• By Samantha Mythen

AKAROA RESIDENTS are also

embroiled in a debate over its

name.

A call has been made to add

‘wh’ to Akaroa.

Ngāi Tahu kaumatua Sir

Tipene O’Regan said early

surveyors to the land had been

unable to distinguish the soft

‘wh’ and because of this, it was

often missed when spelling

Akaroa on colonial maps.

The original name means

‘Long Harbour.’

This week Bay Harbour News

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What are your thoughts on the flags in Lyttelton and the name Whakaroa for Akaroa.

Email your views to samantha.mythen@starmedia.kiwi

‘The council should have consulted with the local iwi’

A ChristchurchNZ spokesperson

said: “We are looking at

options in regards to the street

banners in Lyttelton, and are yet

to undertake any actions.”

When asked previously by

Bay Harbour News if it would

replace the Ōtautahi flags, the

spokesperson said: “This activity

is not budgeted for this financial

year, nor is the future design and

installation of suburb-specific

banners.”

ChristchurchNZ said it recognised

“the individual culture

of Ōhinehou Lyttelton and the

vibrant community that call it

home.”

“However for planning and

marketing purposes, it is considered

a suburb of the city of

Ōtautahi Christchurch.”

The total cost to manufacture

the banners to cover core city

sites was $22,134 plus GST.

This issue has been a large

talking point in the Lyttelton

community.

Said Lyttelton Harbour Business

Association chairwoman

Vicki Tahau-Paton: “The council

should have consulted with the

local iwi before putting up a

generic name.”

Said Malcome Carne: “I would

prefer to see Lyttelton on the

flags. We have our own separate

identity and physicality. The flag

issue is about keeping separate

rather than making Lyttelton a

suburb.”

Said Rob De Thier: “It would be

nice to see the flags replaced with

Lyttelton and Ōhinehou. It has

always been the port of Lyttelton

with its own special identity.”

Several people mentioned the

importance of Lyttelton flags so

those visiting would be able to

identify the town.

Said Sachin Jacob: “The flags

should say Lyttelton, so everyone

who visits can clearly recognise it

as that.’’

Said Charlotte Bruce: “Because

of the strong community perspective

here, it makes sense for

the flags to say Lyttelton. It’s a

destination place. Lyttelton locals

are proud of their home.

“It would be cool to see a

mixture of place names on

the flags, with both Lyttelton,

Christchurch and the Maori

translations.”

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member, Reuben Davidson,

would also like to see the

flags changed.

“Lyttelton has a strong identity

which we are proud of; both

locals and visitors want to

celebrate this. Also, of primary

consideration, is the need to

honour the correct Māori name

for our special place,” he said.

Call to change Akaroa’s name by adding ‘wh’

canvassed Akaroa residents.

Said Rob Harris: “There

is no need to change it as no

one knows it by the other

name.’’

Said Lurlene Roddick: “I don’t

understand why everything has

to be changed from what it

has been known as to a word

more difficult to pronounce.

We should understand culture

and know our history, but we

are a very multi-cultural

country.”

Said Michael Springer: “It

is time to fully celebrate and

acknowledge those hundreds of

years of people living here. You

only have to open your eyes and

notice all the fortified hill sights

to wonder at all the history,

rather than making it all about

a brief moment of when it might

have been French.”

Said Grant Wylie: “I think it

respects a place more to call it by

its original and most meaningful

version, and not what a colonist

with a bad ear for the Ngai Tahu

dialect or te reo Maori more

generally recorded as is.”

Said Mal Stanley: “I think we

should embrace the te reo names

for all places in Aoetearoa,

and correct pronunciation is

something to aspire to for all of

us.”

Another resident, Wayne Allan

Webb, suggested having signs

with both versions.

Children’s

learning

inspires

artwork

• By Samantha Mythen

SUMNER creatives, Alex and

Andy Collins, are showcasing

their quirky handcrafted

wooden toys at the Rock, a

charitable church community.

The couple design and craft

toys and

then

display

them as 3D

textured

paintings.

The toys

on display are all original pieces

under their brand Baby Groova

Goods.

“We are inspired by our passion

for children’s learning and

development, story telling and

our love for nature and the environment,”

said Andy.

Andy is a preschool teacher

and Alex, his wife, is a primary

school teacher. They have been

living in Sumner for two years.

Pairing Alex’s creative streak

with Andy’s interest in art and

wood, each toy is handcrafted.

The exhibition runs at 10

Wakefield Ave, until the last

week of February.

Community board outlines priorities

• By Samantha Mythen

UPGRADING wharves,

sourcing funding for the new

Naval Point development, and

long-term planning are just

some of the priorities the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

has in the coming months.

Five main themes are set to be

prioritised early this year.

The board

must finalise

its Long

Term Plan

for the next

three years by

June. The city

council can

then lock in

Tori Peden

the allocated

budget for the

area.

After the Naval Point

Development Plan was approved

by the board in December, the

next step will focus on sourcing

funds and then deciding how to

implement the plan.

The Diamond Harbour wharf

is set to see upgrades and a

new flotation structure put in

place, aiming to solve continued

accessibility issues experienced

by ferry passengers.

Receiving feedback on

upgrades for the Akaroa wharf

will also be a priority. The

UPGRADE: The Banks Peninsula Community Board is looking at options for the Akaroa

wharf.

board is looking to put together

different options for the wharf,

taking into consideration

heritage and environmental

concerns. This will then be

presented to the public.

Board chairwoman Tori Peden

said: “We want to know what the

community wants to see.”

The final primary focus for the

board will be working alongside

the Banks Peninsula community

and the ChristchurchNZ

tourism portfolio to create a

destination management plan

for the area.

“Locals are taking up the

advice to shop local and explore

local, meaning tourism is still

an important resource. I have

lived in the Banks Peninsula for

19 years and this summer was

my first time taking my kids out

to see the hector’s dolphins in

Akaroa,” said Peden.

“We want to use this time

to investigate tourism in the

region and how it impacts the

community, taking a holistic

view on how to move

forward.”

If people would like to share

your views with the community

board, monthly meetings are

held around the peninsula, said

Peden.

“Myself and the other board

members like to get out and

about as much as possible. Please

approach us with your cool ideas

and we can chat about how the

board can support you.”

A GROUP of philanthropic ex-business

owners are seeking to help young

people in schools within the Sumner-

Ferrymead suburbs fulfil their academic

achievements with a new monetary

award.

The Sumner Ferrymead Foundation,

a charity aiming to support its local

community, has created the Te Raekuru

Puawai (flourish) Awards.

Te Raekura Redcliffs School was the

first school in the area to introduce the

awards late last year.

Three year 8 pupils, Luke Jansen, Lotta

Bennett and Maddison Parker were the

fortunate recipients, each excelling in

different subjects being sport, reading and

maths respectively.

The award money is to be used for educational

purposes. All three pupils chose

to put the funds towards the purchase of

a new computer, a useful choice as they

transition into high school this year.

Trustee John Christensen, said:

“Transitioning from primary to

secondary school is not an inexpensive

exercise for parents so if the foundation

can help with an educational grant, then

it makes total sense. I am delighted the

awards are being used for purchasing

technology.”

The foundation is hoping to expand the

award to other primary schools within

their catchment area.

Another trustee Jane Paterson said:

“We want to give kids every opportunity

so they can flourish and thrive. They are

the future and it’s about creating a cycle

where the more mature locals can help

the young generations. Then in 30-40

years, they will give back and the cycle

will continue.”

The foundation also helped Te Raekura

Redcliffs School to purchase more reading

books to be used in their MSL (multisensory

structured language) programme.

Internationally, MSL is recognised as the

“science behind people learning to read”.

The school had chosen to pilot the MSL

approach to combat the low literacy rates

increasingly seen in New Zealand, and

since its success, it has now been rolled

out to all pupils.

While the MSL approach is considered

essential for more than 50 per cent of

children (including those with dyslexia),

even the 40 per cent who find learning

to read relatively easy benefit from the

approach too.

The foundation has a grant system and

any school or young person can approach

it and apply for funding of academic or

sporting goals.

Paterson said: “Education opens doors.”

Start-up support for Covid-19

impacted jobseekers

• By Simon Anderson

IT’S THAT TIME of year when

everyone is thinking about what

they want to achieve in 2021.

I think we’d all rather forget

2020 but for some it’s not so easy.

Many people have lost jobs, had

to reduce hours or change their

employment situation and are still

feeling the blow that Covid-19

has dealt our economy and

community.

As an indicator, in November

2019 there were 13,656 jobseeker

support recipients in Canterbury

compared to 21,057 in November

2020, an increase of 7400

recipients.

If you’re one of these people

or were unemployed prior to the

pandemic – and are thinking of

starting your own business, we

can help.

ChristchurchNZ is helping identify opportunities for people to reskill and move into other sectors

Higher unemployment impacts

more significantly on those in

lower skilled roles and our

vulnerable populations – Māori;

Pasifika; young people not in

employment, education or

training; and our long-term

How do you start your

business?

Start Me Up is a business

skills kick-starter programme

aimed at people whose work has

been impacted by the pandemic

and are currently, or soon to

be, registered as unemployed.

It is also open to those who

were – school unemployed leavers, prior tertiary to the

pandemic.

It has been specifically designed

to guide people who are thinking

about starting a business but don’t

know where to begin.

Māori From catering and industry. to digital

marketing to selling handcrafted

goods, business ideas of all

kinds are welcomed – but the

programme is not limited to

those that have an idea.

If you’ve ever thought of

starting your own business, we

would definitely encourage you to

sign up to the programme. Even

if you haven’t got an idea, we

can help you work through the

process of coming up with one.

There are two parts to the

programme – the first is an online

short course exploring what it’s

like to start a business and be

self-employed. The online classes

will cover topics such as who

your customers could be, what

problem your business will solve,

how to structure the business,

how to get sales and measure

your progress.

Having completed the online

programme, 25 participants who

want to get serious about building

their business will be selected for

an in-person Accelerator.

The Accelerator will follow the

same framework introduced in

part 1, but will drill deeper in on

each component to help create a

more in-depth business plan that

can be used to get started, to get

funding or simply as a guide for

you in your next steps.

And what are we doing?

We are supporting the journey

for labour market priority groups

graduates, NEET (young people

not in employment, education or

training), impacted workers,

To ensure work isn’t duplicated,

and to identify gaps, we are

mapping the support available

from iwi, central and local

government agencies, our

education providers, charitable

trusts, and other support groups.

Impact projects can then be

delivered to provide support

where needed.

It is critical we ensure our

community has access to the

information they need, and is

aware of the help available.

ChristchurchNZ is developing

and working to ensure this gets

into the hands of those who

need it.

Access to the best

support in town

Both the online and in-person

components will give participants

access to support across the city’s

network to help make their idea a

success.

This will include a team of

successful entrepreneurs, mentors

and start-up experts – people

that have all been there and done

it before and can share their

experiences, both the highs and

the lows with you.

If you are selected to take

part in the Accelerator, your

business plan will be reviewed

by a Westpac loan specialist to

see if it is eligible for a business

loan. If it isn’t, you may be eligible

for support to get your business

started from the Ministry of

Social Development. However,

there’s no guarantees you’ll

receive funding as a result of

taking part in the programme.

Don’t just take it from me

Lisa Schmidt has already

submitted her application for

Start Me Up and is excited about

the opportunities the programme

will provide.

Lisa is an artist and has a

passion for creating sustainable

artwork made from natural

elements or repurposed goods

(pictured). When a recent

business venture selling her art

didn’t work out financially, Lisa

realised that working on her

business skills including how to

sell and get exposure for her work

was essential. Lisa is strongly

connected to Banks Peninsula

and wishes to continue creating

her art there and starting an art

collective with other talented

local female artists.

Why are we doing it?

Start Me Up is a collaboration

between ChristchurchNZ and the

Ministry of Social Development

and is a key action in the

Ōtautahi Christchurch Recovery

Plan which sets out the actions

to make sure our city’s economic

and social recovery from the

Covid-19 pandemic is deliberate,

strong and equitable.

Give it a go

Find out more about the

programme and register online at

www.startmeup.co.nz

We are also developing a

Regional Workforce Plan that

identifies the skills available and

needed now and in the future.

This plan will inform central

government investment and

policy in education, immigration

and community interventions;

and will enable us to better

understand what skills

Christchurch’s future economy

will require. That in turn will

allow us to work with education

providers to ensure the right

courses are offered.

In times of recession we generally

see an increase in people

choosing to study.

This is an opportunity to upskill

Canterbury’s relatively

poorly-educated workforce for

our future economy, to generate

more and better jobs, to increase

productivity, and to raise living

standards and wellbeing.

We are supporting Ngāi Tahu’s

development of an iwi skills hub

that will create stronger pathways

for young Māori into tertiary

education and skilled jobs.

ESTUARY MATTERS

Flying boats suggested for 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

how the estuary could have been a

flying boat base

THE BIRDS of the estuary are

one of the city’s great treasures.

But 72 years ago there could

easily have been wings over the

estuary of a very noisy kind.

In post-war years, Christchurch

wanted regular flights to

Australia. In Auckland, the large

four-engine Sandringham flying

boats flew in from Sydney and

landed in Waitemata Harbour

close to the city centre.

The Sandringhams were

originally war-time Sunderland

flying boats converted to carry

30 passengers. Eyes were cast on

the Avon-Heathcote Estuary as

a possible South Island base for

these sea-planes.

TEAL was upgrading its fleet

and replacing the Sandringhams

with Solents; these new planes

could carry 45 passengers.

Christchurch desperately

wanted a transtasman aviation

link. Harewood could be

extended, but this would cost

money for the extra land, or the

estuary could be used as a flying

boat base.

It did not take too much expertise

to quickly realise that the

estuary was unsuitable as a port

for these large sea-planes.

Although some channels may

have been deep enough, the

estuary was generally too shallow

and there were not enough

multi-directional channels to

cope with planes landing from

the various angles dictated by

variable winds.

So the city council bought land

to lengthen the Harewood strip.

TEAL used DC4s and then DC6s

to fly regular services to Sydney

and Melbourne.

The future lay with land-based

planes because they could carry

heavier payloads at faster speeds.

MAJESTIC: Christchurch was keen for a transtasman aviation link to Sydney but

complications arose when the estuary was deemed not deep enough for the

Sandringham flying boats.

For aviation buffs the prospect

of flying boats landing close to

the city would have been a dream

come true; but for residents

wanting to enjoy the tranquillity

of estuary-side living, just

the wings of terns, godwits and

oystercatchers are quite enough,

thank you.

Ford’s hot hatchback brings back the youth

I DON’T like being referred to

as old.

Sure, as a pensioner, I’m aged

in the senior demographic but

I’d like to think I’m still relatively

youthful, and when I’m presented

with an exciting sports car to

evaluate, my persona changes to

someone much younger.

Just like when I was presented

with the keys to Ford’s Focus ST, a

traditional hot hatchback charger

that is an absolute screamer when

allowed to breathe freely. I felt

well in control of the beast, and

such is its all-round adaptability

it also doubles as a useful fourdoor,

five-seater for when your

grandkids need transporting, and

I also think they would feel quite

proud when seated in the stroppy

sports car.

At $59,900, the Focus ST sits

competitively with other hot

hatchback models yet it carries

all of the practicality the Focus

has as a series, it is easy to drive

and doesn’t present any special

challenges.

The ST gets a 2.3-litre turbocharged,

four-cylinder engine

which gets about its job with

strong engine sound and character.

I’m not saying it is noisy, it’s

not; the sound is well isolated but

it is there to be heard, the engine

is angry under load and it is a

sound that encourages throttle

use, it is pleasant to listen to.

Ford claims healthy outputs of

206kW and 420Nm, providing

the impetus for a 6.4sec standstill

to 100km/h time.

As mentioned, you don’t need to

drive the ST in performance mode

all of the time, it is happy to dawdle

traffic and during my weekday

commute I was comfortable in it

and felt right at ease, although you

do get the impression it is keen to

get some movement going.

Power is directed through a

paddle-shift seven-speed automatic

transmission to the front

wheels. Shifts are smooth and the

ratios are also structured to meet

the demands of fuel-conscious

buyers.

Ford claims an 8.6l/100km

combined cycle fuel usage average

for the ST. The trip computer

was showing around 10l/100km

when I took the car back to the

dealership. It will also return a

5.4l/100km instantaneous reading

at 100km/h (engine speed

1500rpm), which means you can

have some fun without scoffing

vast amounts of fuel.

I took the test car on a Mid-

Canterbury loop, they are perfect

roads for a performance car.

English Fords have generally been

regarded as having supple chassis

balance and the ST doesn’t disappoint,

it simply dances through

the suspension. It also rockets

between corners with a powerful

surge and swift retardation,

thanks to a performance brake

package.

Grippy Michelin Sport tyres

(235/35 x 19in) turn in precisely

with little steering effort but solid

steering feedback. Gravitational

changes don’t load the tyres, nor

does it affect the way the suspension

operates in a corner; if

uneven surfaces are encountered

there is composure and certainty

within the steering process.

The ST stands out with its bold

FORD FOCUS ST:

Fantastic red

paintwork and big

rear spoiler stand

out and hints at a

performance package.

wheels, body kit and spoiler,

while on the inside Recaro seats

not only support the driver

around the mid-riff, but they are

visual. The test car was painted

bright red, described by Ford as

fantastic red, red ST logos embossed

on the front seats complement

the exterior colour.

The Focus ST is a fun package,

yet has practicality on its side. It

comes extensively equipped with

all of the items you’d expect today

for comfort and convenience, and

safety.

If you are up with the play

• Price – Ford Focus ST,

$59,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4388mm; width, 1979mm;

height, 1492mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2261cc, 206kW,

420Nm, seven-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.4sec

• Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

technology-wise, the Focus

as a series also has all of the

functionality to keep you happy.

The entire range has just had

a refresh, there’s more kit for

connectivity and there is an

increased level of electronic safety

spec.

These features not only provide

extra value, convenience and

surety, but they contribute to

the special feeling you get every

time you are in the car, you will

be smiling every time you drive

it and it will certainly make you

feels years younger.
