Rescuers recount saving

eight from burning boat

• By Samantha Mythen

RESCUERS HAVE described

how they saved eight people

from a boat fire in Lyttelton

Harbour.

Kim Clinch, acting

commodore of the Charteris

Bay Yacht Club, was on a

moored boat running a

regatta when she saw the

boat in distress. She phoned

emergency services.

“We saw it unfold, starting

with seeing smoke. Our most

important priority is to save

lives first, rescues are a part of

what we do and so the regatta

support boat – a rib [rigid

inflatable boat] – headed over

to the boat,” she said.

The club’s support crew,

including Steve Palmer, were

first on the scene.

Palmer had been watching

over the February 6 regatta

when he first noticed the

smoking boat.

He jokingly asked his

fellow support crew whether

it was a fire or an out-ofcontrol

barbecue. They soon

realised it was serious and

headed to the boat, about 2min

away from their position.

Teenager

fined for

risky stunt

through

tunnel

• By Samantha Mythen

AN 18-YEAR-OLD has been

fined and severely reprimanded

for risking his life by riding

on the back of a moving freight

truck through the Lyttelton

tunnel.

The truck was carrying a 40ft

container to its Lyttelton port destination

after 11pm on Thursday.

It had stopped at the entrance

to the Lyttelton tunnel on the

Christchurch side due to tunnel

maintenance.

The teenager was a passenger in

a burgundy Mazda3 which had

stopped behind the truck.

While they were stationary, the

teenager jumped onto the back of

the container, where he perched

on the edge. After the lane was

opened, the truck continued on

through the tunnel.

The truck driver was unable

to see him due to the position

of the container. The driver of a

pilot vehicle noticed the teenager

as the truck pulled up to the port

gates.

The teenager then jumped off

and quickly ran up the road.

BARNETT PARK users are

disappointed three large rocks

that tumbled onto the park from

Clifton Hill during the February

22, 2011 earthquake have been

removed.

The rocks have been taken to

the Te Pae convention centre by

Ōtākaro Ltd, the Government

agency responsible for anchor

projects in the central city. They

will be used as part of the landscaping.

The city council said

yesterday it gave permission

for Ōtākaro Ltd to remove the

rocks.

“The community was

not consulted over their

removal, however, their

presence in Barnett Park was

only temporary – they were

originally put in a pile here

by the council following the

earthquakes,” a city council

spokesperson said.

Elsa Truscott, who walks

dogs in Barnett Park, said the

community should have been

consulted before the rocks were

taken.

“They were quite a cool feature

in a park that is quite empty.

long-time resident of Diamond

Harbour, found her curious cat

Coco, a burmese-himalayanpersian-ragdoll

cross, trapped

in a gap between a fence and a

water tank on her property.

The proud owner of three cats

had already found herself in

this situation last year in March

when her ragdoll Cookie had

also got itself trapped in the

same place.

After trying to reach a neighbour

for help to no avail, Mehalski

knew who to call to the

rescue. She promptly got a hold

of the volunteer fire brigade.

“They must have thought: ‘Oh

not again,’ after I rang them,”

laughed Mehalski.

Nathan Graham, chairman

of the Diamond Harbour Resident’s

Association, navigated the

tricky rescue.

Coco was soon back in the

arms of Mehalski, not too soon

after the fire brigade all received

a cuddle from the cat too.

Graham had also rescued

Cookie the year before.

Mehalski said: “We are so

lucky to have such a fantastic

fire brigade. I’m so grateful and

I hope I don’t have to call them

again.”

She intends to place some

wire-netting over the gap.

Skippers are legally required to

Land

How the Hunger for Ownership Shaped

the Modern World by Simon Winchester

In 1889, thousands of hopeful people raced southward

from the Kansas state line and westward from the Arkansas

boundary to stake claims on the thousands of acres of

unclaimed pastures and meadows. Across the twentieth

century, water was dammed and drained in Holland so that a

new province, Flevoland, rose up, unchartered and requiring new

thinking. In 1850, California legislated the theft of land from Native

Americans. An apology came in 2019 from the governor, but what of the

call for reparations or return? What of government confiscation of land

in India, or questions of fairness when it comes to New Zealand’s Maori

population and the legacy of settlers?

The ownership of land has always been complicated, opaque, and more

than a little anarchic when viewed from the outside. In this book, Simon

Winchester explores the stewardship of land, the ways it is delineated

and changes hands, the great disputes, and the questions of restoration –

particularly in the light of climate change and colonialist reparation.

A global study, this is an exquisite exploration of what the ownership of

land might really mean – not in dry-as-dust legal terms, but for the people

who live on it.

A beautiful story of love and loss from the winner of Romantic Novel of the Year

He’d have done everything differently if he’d known she’d be gone so soon...

When Lisa married Alex, she gave his life meaning. She was a professional

astronomer: a stargazer. And when she gazed at Alex, she saw that behind his

tough exterior was a man she could love.

Alex, Lisa and their young son Connor made a happy little universe. But when

Lisa dies suddenly, their universe is destroyed. Alex is shattered by loss, and

overwhelmed by the difficulties of being a single father to a six-year-old boy.

Then Alex meets four strangers. Two men and two women, who never met

Lisa, but whose lives changed profoundly because she died. As Alex hears

their stories, he begins to realise the world may not be as cruel and senseless

as it seems. Perhaps, after all, the future is written in the stars...

THE BYO Pub in Heathcote

Valley is opening its doors once

more on Friday to commemorate

10 years since the February 22,

2011 earthquake.

The quake and the September

4, 2010 quake devastated the

Heathcote Valley, significantly

damaging the historic Valley Inn

Tavern and several cafes.

Two weeks after the February

earthquake, St Mary’s church –

built in 1860 – transformed itself

into a local pub, opening Friday

and Saturday nights with bring

your own drinks and food.

Malcolm Rickerby was the

vicar’s warden in 2011. He was

part of the team, including the

vicar Mary Giles, who came up

with the idea for the BYO Pub.

“We knew we had to do

something for our tight-knit

community,” said Rickerby.

Luckily, the hall that hosted

the pub had been restored in August

2010 and was undamaged

by the earthquakes.

“On the first night, almost 80

per cent of the valley were present

with their kids.”

Anthony Stroud said his

family attended almost every

Friday night.

“After the quake, we had no

where to go, and then this was

the place where you could take

some food and drinks and have a

fun social gathering,” he said.

“You could meet new people

and chat to others about what

they went through and were

going through after the quakes.”

His daughter Poppy Denovan-

Stroud was eight when the BYO

Pub opened for the first time.

“Everyone was making a big

deal about it and it was just nice

to see something good come out

of the earthquake. The community

spirits were high,” she said.

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton said:

“It was a safe place to connect

and share. It was the heart of the

village.”

Templeton’s three children

were four (twins) and six in 2011.

She reflected on how the BYO

Pub was perfect for both adults

and the young people of the

community.

“It was all so much fun for the

kids. I remember looking outside

into the dark and seeing all these

little lights running around in

the paddock behind the church

where kids were playing hide and

seek.”

Rickerby said it never rained

on a Friday night. About 80-100

people gathered each weekend.

Although the patronage

decreased over the years, and the

BYO Pub dropped to opening

only one day a week (Friday),

it continued running until July

2014.

Rickerby is looking forward to

joining everyone at the pub on

Friday.

“It’s a fantastic idea to have

the 10 year anniversary there.

The BYO Pub was a large part

of the community’s earthquake

recovery, it brought everyone

together.”

Said Templeton: “The event

will be a time to look back and

reflect, both on how long it has

been since the earthquakes but

also on how time has passed

in the blink of an eye. We have

come a long way.”

The BYO Pub event will

depend on alert levels.

Recalling artist Bill Hammond’s generosity

Long-time

Lyttelton

resident

and coowner

of

Busy C’s

Preschool

Caro Davidson writes

about iconic artist Bill

Hammond who died

recently

I WANT to acknowledge Bill

Hammond’s extraordinary

generosity on behalf of the

Lyttelton tamariki/children,

their whānau, the local schools

and the local artists.

In 2003 the first Peninsula Art

Auction was held, which came

about to raise funds for a teacher

salary at Lyttelton Main School,

due to a temporary dip in role

numbers which meant we were

losing a teacher.

We knew a lot of local artists,

and were aware of the talent we

were surrounded by, with the

most notable local artist being

Bill Hammond – one of New

Zealand’s greatest contemporary

artists.

I met Bill in a supermarket car

park and told him of our plan for

the fundraiser art auction and

asked if he would be interested

to be part of it. With no fuss or

hesitation he said “sure, for the

children of Lyttelton – when do

you want the work?”

With that, he has single-handedly

raised tens of thousands of

dollars every second year (when

the Peninsula Art Auction’s are

held) for the schools (now the

one school, Lyttelton Primary)

with his art work which he donated

each year.

He was so talented, unassuming,

efficient – and he inspired

our local and emerging artists

to exhibit (with the privilege of

appearing in the same exhibition

as such an esteemed artist as

Bill), and bidding interest from

all over Aotearoa.

He joined us in our Harbour

Kitchen’s cookbook fundraiser

in 2009 (which is being repeated

this year) with his favourite recipe

of sliced beetroot and Marmite

on toast – along with an illustration

of the same. A stunning

combination of flavours.

He donated works each year to

the Sculptures on the Peninsula

for Chomondeley Children’s

Centre in Governor’s Bay

Palmer’s new gallery opposite the

medical centre, because he was a

neighbour, and so generous and

interested in the well-being of

our tamariki.

A highlight was being parent

help with Bill at his own survey

exhibition Jingle Jangle Morning

in 2007 at the Christchurch Art

Gallery when his granddaughter

was attending Lyttelton Main

School.

Those tamariki received

information about his works

that I believe no journalist

ever got – and Bill also got to

hear the wonderful accolades

the public were giving his work,

as he was rarely photographed,

therefore people were unaware

the artist himself was in their

midst.

The tamariki were set an

exercise to study and draw one of

Bill’s works, and he was having

fun signing some of them . . .

which may or may not cause

some future confusion in the art

market.

Deepest condolences and

best wishes go to Jane and his

family.

Former Sumner School

principal remembered

Former Sumner

School teacher

Nancy Meherne

writes about Peter

Vesty, a former

principal at the

school, who died

on Christmas Eve

PETER WAS headmaster

at the school for 16 years

from 1976 to 1992.

The teachers, parents

and children attending

the school during these

years will be upset with

death, but will have strong

feelings for his ability in all

respects.

The response from children,

parents and teachers

to his energetic and highly

responsive personality, and

his ability to develop good

humour, meant laughter

was most evident in this

school.

Children loved and respected

him, and if a message

had to be taken to the

office, everyone put their

hands up to volunteer.

I know, I had a list of all

names on the blackboard

and as they were chosen

their name was rubbed out.

One time in weekly

assembly, juniors were

told a very important man

• By Samantha Mythen

FURTHER amenities

will be added to Te Papa

Kura Redcliffs Park as it

transforms into the new

community locale.

The former school site

is to receive a new toilet

block, drinking fountain,

signage and furniture.

More plants and trees will

also be added to the area.

All of this will feature

alongside the two sports

fields – junior and intermediate

– which opened in

December.

Said city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge:

“The park has been a huge

boost for the area and it’s

been great to see lots of

people making the most of

it as we know it is a really

significant space for the

community.

“We’re getting under way

with plans to make this

asset an even better space

for people to visit.”

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton

said the development of

this park has been a longtime

coming.

from the Royal Family was

coming to walk along the

Esplanade in the weekend.

Who would that be?

So many children’s

hands went up, the children

saying: “Mr Vesty.”

The answer was: “No.”

They all looked puzzled

and disappointed until one

small boy put his hand up,

then down and up again,

saying loudly: “Is it, (pause)

God?”

The answer was: “No. It

is Prince Charles”.

“Oh,” everyone sighed,

and their heads were shaking

with disbelief.

One boy in my classroom

was so impressed by

the head, he always had

an eye on the door ready

to open it and salute Peter,

and close it when he left.

We teachers knew that

we could discuss our ideas

and desires with Peter. He

A lot of the delay with

the park’s development was

because of the extensive archaeological

work that had

to be carried out first.

The park is next to the

Moa Bone point cave,

which is an area of extreme

cultural significance to

local iwi. The cave and surrounding

area are thought

to have been the site of

some of the earliest Māori

settlement in New Zealand

around the 14th-century.

Said Templeton: “Having

the park up and running

now is very exciting. It has

been a community-focused

project.”

trusted us to work hard.

One idea he supported

was a music scheme involving

the whole school

which developed into 230

children playing together

for concerts, and groups

visiting aged people homes

and other schools.

As well as good relationships,

other aspects of the

school received attention

and real improvement

occurred.

The Education Department

planned to pull two

old classrooms down, but

Peter knew we needed a

school hall for all our assemblies,

concerts, breakups,

and fundraising for

school improvement.

At that time we had to

use the village hall.

He succeeded in producing

a good sized hall and

later a big swimming pool.

This resulted in a high

standard of swimming

ability, necessary for safe

swimming in a seashore

zone.

Mr Vesty’s hard work,

energy and determination

to achieve a fully

functional school has never

been forgotten; so highly

appreciated and valued,

which has perpetuated the

high standard of Sumner

School today.

Transformation planned

for Redcliffs Park

UPGRADES: New amenities are on the way at

the former Redcliffs School, which is now Te

Papa Kura Redcliffs Park.

Before the former

Redcliffs School buildings

were demolished, members

of the community were

taken round the area and

asked what they would like

to keep.

The playground was a

key focus and has since

been refurbished and is

extensively used.

The community also

wanted to keep a classroom

which was not badly

damaged.

The Mt Pleasant

Pottery Club has recently

taken up that lease and will

be operating from there

soon.

Veterinary practice

Dental issues in puppies

and kittens

We seem to be seeing or are more aware

of a number of our young patients with

teeth issues at an early age. A thorough

dental check needs an accommodating

patient and a patient vet and is not always

easy! Your initial training of your puppy

and yes your kitten with handing the feet,

looking in the mouth and ears certainly

helps. Positive reinforcement with praise

and play or treats afterwards really helps

this become an experience they look

forward to rather than shy away from.

At our vaccination checks which we do

every 3-4 weeks until your puppy or kitten

is 16 weeks, we will give them a full health

check and examine the mouth to try and

identify any dental issues early so we can

hopefully correct them and not need

major surgery later on.

Some of the things we usually see are

malocclusions where often due to face

shape and size the teeth don’t align in a

normal way. Often these may not cause

any major problems and simple dental

care to help keep the teeth clean will be all

that is needed.

Unfortunately sometimes we have teeth

that erupt in the wrong place or the bone structure

of the mouth does not have enough room for the

teeth to come

up where they

should do.

One situation

is where the

lower canines

hit the roof of

the mouth and

can cause big

painful holes.

Sometimes

we can

correct these

with specific

ball therapy

techniques

but others may

require surgical

extractions

as soon as

possible. Our

goal is to try

and keep your

puppy or kitten

pain free and

to try and sort

Macy at 12 weeks

out issues early

so hopefully

we can save the adult teeth.

Retained teeth are a common problem and it is

often the canines involved. The big issue is that

if we don’t remove these teeth quickly then they

can displace by blocking the normal pathway of

the adult canine teeth. Then we can have long

term problems. This is one of the reasons your

vet may suggest a check up around 6 months

of age so we can recognise this issue early and

prevent permanent problems.

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Another condition that happens is that some teeth

don’t erupt or are missing. This seems to affect

dogs more commonly and we notice that there are

missing teeth, often when they are

neutered. This seems to be relatively

common in Boxers, Shih Tzus and

Chihuahuas. If there are teeth under

the gum line we sometimes can do

a simple technique to allow them to

erupt but unfortunately others may

just be too deep. These teeth can

form huge cysts in the bone and if

not detected can end up with a dog

needing it’s lower jaw removed!

These are a couple of x-rays from a

wonderful patient Pepper whose

lower canine teeth hadn’t erupted and

caused these massive cysts.

All in all it is about early detection to

prevent long term problems, your help

with handling training and rewards

can really make a big difference in our

ability to examine your puppy or kitten.

Year 8 pupils Amelie Mogridge

and Annabelle Barker, of Te

Raekura Redcliffs School, write

about their inaugural paddling

event

On Sunday, February 14, Te RaeKura

participated in a ‘paddle to school’ day.

Around 80-100 people were involved and

we were all very impressed. Most people

came to school either by paddleboard,

kayak, blow up rafts, canoes and much

more.

Everyone arrived at about 2pm at

Moncks Bay and waited for about half

an hour for the wind to calm down a bit

and for the sail races to finish. We got

back into the water around 2.30pm after a

sandcastle competition.

Paddle to school day was a blast and

we all had a lot of fun! After a lot of hard

work, swimming and pushing people off

of their rides, we finally arrived at the

school around 3.15pm.

There were a lot of safety precautions

and water stops if people got tired. Seven

surf lifesavers from Sumner Surf Club in

inflatable rescue boats and on surf boards

were there to help us out.

After we arrived everyone changed into

warm clothing and huddled around on the

grass for a delicious picnic and later played

some games.

Abby, our deputy principal came

around and handed out some tasty ice

blocks which we all enjoyed very much.

A big thank you to Abby and Darren

and all the helpers and organisers. We

couldn’t have done it without you!

Overall the project was so much fun, not

many kids get to paddle to their school.

We all enjoyed it a lot and would definitely

do it again!

170 years of Prep School Excellence

Educational matters have

been much in the news at the

start of the school year. At St

Michael’s, we are delighted

that history teaching has finally

been acknowledged as essential

for developing well-informed,

articulate Kiwi citizens.

For at St Michael’s, history

is our foundation. As New

Zealand’s oldest prep school,

for 170 years we have educated

and nurtured the visionaries and

dreamers who have built our

city and country, shaping our

history and future.

At St Michael’s, our

young pupils have limitless

potential to lead exciting and

generous lives, and we have

the responsibility to educate

and inspire them, to encourage

every child to flourish in

mind, body and spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep school

for girls and boys in Years

1-8. ‘Prep’ as in a preparation

for secondary school, and a

foundation for a fine life. For

at the heart of St Michael’s

are the essential values of

Christian faith and good global

citizenship: respect, integrity,

faith, hope and love.

Our small co-ed classes and

specialist teachers ensure that

each child is an individual,

well known by staff and fellow

pupils alike. Every child has a

desk and chair, locker and peg

– their own space in which to

establish their own sense of

place and identity.

Traditional foundations

in English and Mathematics

are assured at St Michael’s.

The mechanics of English –

punctuation, grammar, spelling,

vocabulary and sentence

construction – are taught,

practised and tested. Learning

to read develops into reading

to learn, and the delights of

children’s literature, poetry

and drama. Simple sentences

become finely crafted creative

writing, accounts and studies.

Maths teaching has been

in the media firing line again

recently as our national results

continue to slide against key

international markers. At St

Michael’s, we keep it simple

and teach proper, ‘good, old

fashioned’ maths. Our pupils

are taught and have to learn

basic facts, times tables and

essential algorithm methods.

We don’t bundle anything! Our

parents can help their children

with their maths homework,

because they recognise it!

This academic rigour then

underpins our wider curriculums

in History, Geography and

Science. Spanish and, for the

older pupils, Latin, offer the

enrichment of learning another

language and about another

culture. IT literacy is taught,

not assumed, and computer use

is measured. We like teaching

and talking to our pupils!

A prep education offers

balance. St Michael’s cultural

and sports’ programmes

further develop each child’s

foundation, as creativity and

problem-solving come in many

forms. Specialist art and music

classes are enjoyed weekly.

Many pupils participate in

individual instrumental, singing

or speech & drama lessons with

one of our ten itinerant staff.

Our several choirs, Stage Band

and Orchestra offer key early

steps in group performance.

Our senior programme,

Parare, advances our Year 7&8

education outside the box, from

financial literacy to outdoor ed,

leadership challenges to new

sports, citizenship and civics to

art and technologies.

Nestled as we are on the

banks of the Avon, opposite

the Riverside Farmers’ Market,

ST MICHAEL’S ALUMNI

To help us celebrate 170 years of St

Michael’s Prep School excellence at the

heart of our city, alumni and former staff

are warmly invited to contact us so we can

share our anniversary plans with you.

alumni@saintmichaels.co.nz

St Michael’s extended campus

is spectacular: the art gallery,

museum, library, theatres and

Hagley Park are frequent haunts

only minutes away.

Many of our parents work

in the thriving city centre, and

Lincoln and Riccarton Road

hubs, but they live city-wide.

They comment on the comfort

of knowing their children are in

school nearby and the benefits

of popping over for an hour to

catch a performance or watch a

race.

With the central bus exchange

only a block away, senior

children arrive from all corners

of the city.

An independent school

education is a precious gift

and it doesn’t have to break the

bank. If you think a St Michael’s

education would suit your

child, you are warmly welcome

to discover for yourself our

purposeful, wholehearted and

inclusive prep school.

ESTUARY MATTERS

NEWS 13

Festival to celebrate the estuary’s beauty

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 Vicky Southworth writes about

Estuary Fest that will be held on February 27.

WHETHER CHOPPY water

and dark brooding sky, or mirror

smooth reflecting the bright

blue of a summer’s morning,

looking across the estuary to the

mountains is a spectacular scene.

I joined the Estuary Trust as

the Environment Canterbury

councillor representative just over

a year ago. I have come to see the

estuary as so much more than a

picture-perfect landscape; it is

home to many species, of which

the birds are the most visible.

Riding my bike along the

Coastal Pathway, I can now name

the birds I see, and know something

about them.

There’s the sharply dressed pied

oystercatchers with red bill and

crisp black and white attire – they

take their time picking through

the exposed shellfish beds at low

tide.

ACTIVITIES: Children taking part in past Estuary Fest

events, there will be fun for all ages on February 27.

The godwits in brown blend

in but are worth a closer look for

their unfeasibly long beaks. I love

how the cormorants congregate;

wings outstretched soaking up the

sun after diving for fish.

However, my favourite is the

royal spoonbill which, in spite of

its pure white feathers, reminds

me of a bulldozer, head down

trundling through the muddy

shallows to feed.

Go along to the annual Estuary

Fest to celebrate the beauty of

everything estuary; its wildlife, its

beauty and the recreational opportunities

provides.

The free event will be held

on February 27, 1-5pm,

McCormacks Bay Reserve (turn

right just before the causeway).

There will be ample and

controlled parking space, live

music, pony rides, food stalls,

children activities, native plants

sale, several stalls providing you

with information on everything

estuary and so much more.

When we call, hundreds

of Kiwi businesses answer.

At Fire and Emergency, 80% of our people are volunteers, many running or working at businesses

just like this. In an emergency, their businesses proudly allow them to rush out and help.

Technology boost for Kia Sorento

THERE’S NOT a lot in an

automobile that fazes me.

As technology has advanced,

I’ve usually embraced it. However,

I was very reluctant to use the

remote control function in Kia’s

new Sorento.

Put simply, you can drive the

Sorento autonomously from the

outside. Say it is jammed into a

car park and you can’t access the

driver’s door, you can start the

vehicle with the key remote and

drive it out of the car park. It will

stop if it detects an object.

While I applaud the concept

and it is rather amazing, it just

doesn’t seem natural for someone

who always likes to be in total

control behind the wheel.

That’s just one of the many clever

features in the new Sorento; it’s

fair to say, though, that that function

is only available in the top

spec Premium model – as evaluated.

The Sorento Premium could

well be described as a premium

car, it is a big sport utility vehicle

absolutely crammed with features

and built with high quality trim

materials.

The Sorento for 2021 is all-new.

The fourth-generation model has

a new platform, new engine and

new styling, it’s quite a departure

from its predecessor. However,

none of the changes have altered

the concept of Sorento because,

as mentioned, it is big and fulfils

many roles.

There are four models in the

range starting at $59,990, the

Premium tops out at $76,990,

with an EX sitting at $63,990 and

Deluxe $69,990.

All variants are powered by a

2.2-litre diesel engine. Regular

readers will remember that I

wrote with enthusiasm about the

R-Series diesel unit that powered

Sorentos of the past. Well, that

engine is gone, the new Smartstream

diesel is a totally new

development; as opposed to the

iron-block R-Series, the newcomer

is all aluminium and, of

course, it has the benefit of being

much lighter as well has having

a heightened awareness around

smooth and quiet operation. It is

also incredibly efficient.

Kia’s claims for the diesel

are 148kW and 440Nm, both

pumping out at low engine

revolutions 3800rpm and

1750-2750rpm for torque. It

is also rated with an inspiring

6.1l/100km combined cycle

fuel usage average. The latter

figure is no hurdle, during my

highway run the readouts were

listing at an amazing 4.5l/100km

instantaneously at 100km/h

(engine speed 1600rpm).

When I returned the Sorento

back to the dealership it was

showing a 7.5l/100km combined

average, which I thought was very

CAPABLE: The Santa Fe’s four-wheel-drive system has been

enhanced to take you further off-road.

KIA SORENTO PREMIUM: Advanced features are incorporated into the range-topping

model.

respectable given the Premium

spec model weighs in rather

tubby at close to two-tonne.

The other benefit is that of

its 67-litre fuel tank, when I

picked up the car it was showing

a distance to empty figure of

850km, that would stretch if a

long highway run was planned.

That’s the benefit of diesel,

economy is spectacular and you

lose nothing in the way of performance.

The Sorento will accelerate

to 100km/h from a standstill in

8.9sec along with 6sec to make 80-

120km/h. The latter figure has the

benefit of that fabulous mid-range

torque that big turbocharged

diesel engines offer, response is

lively and forceful, and those who

can’t get their heads around diesel

power don’t know what they are

missing out on, the Sorento’s performance

is fabulous.

The engine is something special,

the way it drives through an

eight-speed dual clutch automatic

transmission also contributes to

the feel of sophistication. It, too,

is smooth and quick to change.

If you feel like overriding the

changes or shift protocols, paddle-shifters

allow you to do that.

Not only does the new Sorento

look smart and have power on

its side, so does it cover distance

and handle well beyond its design

brief. Kia’s engineers have also

placed a greater emphasis on the

four-wheel-drive mechanicals,

the potential to travel cross-country

has been enhanced, there are

several drive modes that can be

pre-selected depending on the

surface ahead.

The Sorento is all about

transporting your family in

comfort. The newcomer is larger

than before, and the interior

layout has been designed so that

it is more practical than before.

It is a genuine seven-seater, and

for those assigned to the rear row,

that area has been made even

more spacious with easier access.

Cargo space is generous, with

the two rear rows folded there is

up to 2011-litres available. With

the rear rows in place 187-litres

and 821-litres are available. In

Premium form rich black leather

is used as seat trim material.

As you would expect, the new

Sorento also has a higher level of

fitment; comfort and convenience

items abound, and while column

space doesn’t allow major

detailing, I must mention the

large, wide central display panel/

touch screen the functions and

its capability are deep. Also, the

Sorento has a significant number

of new safety features.

The Sorento has been a

popular and important model

for Kia New Zealand. It also has

global popularity and Kia, as a

manufacturer, has recognised

that it needed to change with the

times.

That has certainly happened,

and Kia won’t be sitting back

resting on the success of the

newcomer. The engineering

changes that have been made

to the fourth-generation model

allow flexibility, soon there will

be hybrid and plug-in models

landing.

It’s been a busy couple of

years for Kia NZ, it has landed

a succession of new models,

and judging by the information

coming out of the company, there

are more exciting models on their

way. If the Sorento is anything

to go by, the Kia faithful will be

well rewarded and those who

do buy into the brand won’t be

disappointed.

Position Perfection

64 Wakatu Avenue, Redcliffs 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living, 1 dining, 4 car garaging

A supreme park-side position provides a magnificent backdrop to this

sizeable 70s home which offers an effortless lifestyle in Redcliffs.

Boasting immediate access through to neighbouring Barnett Park, this

property is well-positioned to embrace Redcliffs various offerings, with

a mere stroll leading you to the beach, cafes and bars while in-zone

Redcliffs School is also nearby.

Superbly presented and meticulously maintained, this appealing

family home is tastefully styled and has enjoyed refreshed flooring, an

upgraded kitchen and refurbished bathroom over the past decade and

a half.

The expansive five-bedroom layout is arranged across two floors, with

bedrooms and a bathroom on each for ultimate everyday ease. The

home’s ground floor accommodation is ideal for teens, with a bathroom

supporting the three bedrooms, two of which open out to a patio. An

additional bathroom separates the two upper-level bedrooms which

boast elevated views, one of which is the generously sized master.

Large living spaces occupy the ground floor, including the kitchen,

dining and lounge area as well as a sunroom that leads outdoors to

the spacious deck and garden. A courtyard at the front of the section

soaks up the morning sun to provide the perfect spot for enjoying your

morning coffee.

Extensive insulation, double glazing and a new log burner keep this sunbathed

home incredibly comfortable throughout the seasons.

Storage has been thoughtfully considered throughout, with a four-car

garage, two garden sheds and on-site parking offering abundant space

outdoors.

This fantastic family home represents a rare opportunity in a favoured

location, and prospective purchasers are encouraged to act quickly.

Repair, Rejuvenate or Redevelop

16 Hurst Seager Lane, Sumner

5 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4 toilets, 2 living, 2 car garaging

Enjoying an elevated position to take in unrivalled coastal views and set on

a substantial parcel of land, this large family home tucked away at the end of

a quiet cul-de-sac on Clifton Hill is offered to the market on “as is, where is”

basis. With both the interior and exterior remaining true to its origins, the

property represents a unique opportunity for a savvy buyer with vision and

flair to repair, rejuvenate and reap the benefits.

With double garaging on the ground floor, and living and accommodation

arranged over two light-filled upper levels, the cleverly-configured floorplan

has been designed to take full advantage of the spectacular outlook with

sweeping views across the Avon-Heathcote Estuary to the Southern Alps

from almost every room. Incorporating five bedrooms, three bathrooms plus

a guest toilet, and a generously proportioned interconnected kitchen, dining

and living space with adjoining study, the home will accommodate modern

living with ease and with a multitude of flexible spaces, will appeal to those

seeking to work from home.

Rich with bird life and featuring easy-care plantings, the magnificent

1.8-hectare section’s sloping gradient ensures you’ll never be built out and

imparts a sense of space and seclusion while being just a few minutes’ drive

from Sumner Beach and 20 minutes from the central city.

Designed and built to our vendors’ specifications, this property has served as

a very special family home for many years but with the decision to sell firmly

made, this property is a must-see for buyers ready to tackle a new project.
