Lyttelton man caught up

in Covid hotel bus fiasco

• By Andy Brew

HAVING ESCAPED the

turbulence of a Covid-ravaged

UK, Lyttleton man Kian

Malone expected his return

home to be less, not more,

traumatic.

But as one of a group of

returnees potentially exposed

to the virus while in MIQ, he

now faces a long wait in isolation

– and deteriorating mental

health.

Malone (right)flew back to

New Zealand on March 8, 2021

and entered managed isolation

at the Grand Mercure Auckland

hotel for what was, initially, a

routine stay. But, on the eve

of completing his mandatory

two-week stint, Malone was

told that his stay in quarantine

would have to be extended,

as he had been on the same

exercise bus as a Covid-positive

case earlier that day.

Because officials could not be

sure where exactly the infected

person sat on the exercise bus,

all passengers were deemed

close contacts and told they

must stay in isolation for longer.

Initially, Malone was told he

would have to remain in isolation

for a further “three to four

days” while further tests were

carried out.

“I was gutted,” Malone said.

“I was really looking forward

to going to a café or bar

and getting back to a sense of

normality after a year of hell in

England.”

To make matters worse,

however, Malone was then told

that the brief extension to his

stay would actually be stretched

out even further and that all

those on the exercise bus must

stay in isolation until at least

April 4, which for Malone was

28 days after he first arrived.

Bus journeys to off-site

exercise areas have also been

paused, and an investigation

has been launched into the offsite

exercise yards.

It was the realisation that

he faced a prolonged stay in

isolation that hit Malone the

hardest.

“I was crestfallen,” he said.

“My brain felt like it was

caving in.”

Malone’s four-week stay in

MIQ comes on top of a 10-

day isolation he underwent in

London to ensure he met the

strict criteria needed to fly.

Young surfers gearing up for the

• By Samantha Mythen

COMING OFF a fantastic 2020

competitive surf season, the

young club members of Point

Surf Team are still taking to

the sea to practice their surfing

skills, getting ready for next

summer.

Point Surf Team is the local

board riders club in the Sumner

and Taylors Mistake area. There

are 35 members under the age

of 18, with 14 girls and 21 boys.

About 100 young surfers compete

competitively in Canterbury

overall.

Bay Harbour News chatted

with the young surfers earlier

this month hoping to get an

insight on what drew them to

surfing and what motivates them

to keep working on their craft.

For all of the young surfers, a

passion for the long board runs

in the family.

Said 10-year-old Kobe: “My

Dad is a surfer. He helped push

me on to the waves.”

Another 10-year-old, Bodhi,

first started surfing when he was

three. His mother’s surfer friend

took Bodhi out on the board

with him.

Bodhi’s father pitched in

to the story: “He scooped up

Bodhi without him even

knowing, chucked him on his

board, paddled out and then

Clark are keen to show off their skills on the boards.

caught a wave.”

Said Jet, 8: “My dad’s a good

surfer and he pushed me on to

a wave when I was about 4. We

paddled out on his long board

and he caught a wave with me.”

Girls are also dominating the

Sumner surf scene.

The first time Amelie Clarke,

12, went surfing was at a competition.

Her parents both surf and

they decided to enter Amelie,

throwing her in the deep end.

Now older and still in love

with the sport, Amelie came

first in the under 12 category

of the Seventh Wave Women’s

Canterbury Championships held

in Sumner over the weekend of

March 6.

Tessa Langman, 12, started

surfing when she was seven, inspired

by her surfer father. After

entering her first competition,

she met Amelie and they have

been surfing pals since.

Langman said: “There are

more young men surfing at the

moment but a lot more girls are

getting well into it which is really

good.”

Poppy, 12, and Olive, 14, love

the social part of the competitions.

“It’s a lot fairer and there’s

a lot more female’s surfing now,”

they said.

Their father bought them

both surfboards when they were

three. Poppy came first in the

under 14 category of the women’s

champs.

The training the youth do is

vigorous, and it’s all on their

own volition.

big waves

Jet explained they mostly train

weekly in the waves of Sumner

and Taylors Mistake. They work

with their coaches on creating

goals they can work towards.

Most try and surf every day if

they can, showing boundless

enthusiasm for the sport.

“It could be wave counts, or

carves, and we work on these

throughout the sessions.”

Jack said: “Taylors has the best

waves in Christchurch with a

nice cove beach.”

Niwi Ututaonga, a volunteer

coach with Point Surf Team, said:

“These guys are really committed.

They are always out practicing

in the water and their results

in the competitions show it.”

Benji Lowen, 11, came first

in the under 14 category of the

Billabong Grom Series Competition

held in Whangamata in

February.

Jack Tyro, 14, came second in

the under 16 category.

“We’ve got quite good surfers

competing from Christchurch,

but we’ve got competition too,”

Jack said.

Bodhi’s first competition was

the Duke Festival of Surfing, held

out in the windy waves of New

Brighton beach over the second

week of March.

Prior to the competion, Bodhi

said: “I’m excited and a little

scared but I think I’ll give it a shot

and it’s not really about competition,

it’s about having fun.”

The young surfers all offered a

cool mature outlook when they

explained what they get out of

surfing.

Ryder Townshed, 10, said: “I

like being in the moment, all

the adrenaline and if you win,

you feel really stoked. If you don’t

win, you just feel really stoked for

the person who does win.”

“I love the feeling of being

in the water and having a little

challenge. It’s fun with friends

because it’s good company when

you’re on the waves,” he continued.

The best thing about surfing for

them all is the freedom it offers.

Said Kobe: “When you pop up,

you don’t always know exactly

what to do but you just do what

feels right.”

This idea was echoed by the

others.

“You’re so free. You feel like

you can do whatever you want!”

When the waves are big and

the skies are foggy, they get nervous.

Amelie is scared of sea creatures.

Tessa is scared of seaweed.

another is scared of stingrays.

But nothing keeps them from

loving the ocean and practicing

their surfing as much as they can.

They all say surfing offers them

too many fun experiences to

count.

‘I felt like I’m losing my mind’

• From page 1

“I will have been in isolation

for almost six weeks by the time

I’m due out.

“I’m desperate to re-integrate

back into society.”

“I can’t even remember the

last time I shook hands with

somebody or gave out a highfive.”

Malone, a primary school

teacher, said he had spoken to a

Ministry of Health nurse each

day about his mental health

situation. He said he had found

himself drinking every day to

offset the boredom and that his

sleeping patterns had changed

dramatically.

“I feel like I’m losing my

mind,” he said.

“I don’t get up in the mornings

anymore. The later I get up,

the better, as it feels as though a

third of my day is gone.”

In spite of a traumatic few

weeks, Malone had nothing but

praise for the Grand Mercure

Auckland hotel staff and was

grateful to be back home in New

Zealand having seen the chaos

that Covid had caused overseas.

“I’ve got to keep things in

perspective,” he said.

“I’m just looking forward to

getting out there into a

Covid-free society and being

able to hug family and friends

again.”

Life on the ocean wave suspended

• By Samantha Mythen

HELEN SHREWSBURY lives

by the motto: ‘To discover new

lands, you must first lose sight of

the shore.’

“You have to take the risk to

have the adventure,” she said.

A year ago, Lyttelton residents

Shrewsbury and her husband

Stephen Prendergast, flew to

England where they brought

a yacht with the intention to

explore the world on a two-year

adventure leading them back

home again.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 took

the wind from their sails and

they are staying with Shrewsbury’s

sister in the United Kingdom.

Their first stop, France, is

not allowing people from the UK

into the country.

The idea for the grand adventure

was a collaboration between

the couple.

“I always had wanted to explore

the South Pacific. Prendergast

said he wanted to sail in the

Mediterranean,” she said.

“The idea to buy a boat in the

UK and then sail through those

places back to New Zealand,

grew and morphed quickly from

there.”

Both in their 50s, they decided

to sell up and make their dreams

a reality.

“I want to die with memories,

not dreams,” Shrewsbury said.

Cerulean, the boat they purchased

once they arrived in the

UK, is a 43ft MkIII Sea Stream,

designed specifically for blue

water – long distance -– sailing.

At first sight, they fell in love

with the design of it.

The boat was originally customised

by former BBC radio and

television reporter Peter Snow.

As a tall man, the boat was

designed with 6.7ft of headroom

– also perfect for Shrewsbury

and Prendergast who are 6ft and

over. Shrewsbury is in touch

with Snow today. The boat

was named after Snow and his

wife’s love of Lake Cerulean in

Canada.

The rough plan was to sail

around France, Spain and Portugal,

across the Atlantic, down to

the Caribbean, through Panama

to the Galapogas Islands, then

to explore around Tahiti and Fiji

and land on Kiwi shores.

“Unfortunately 2020 was not

the best time to do it but we’ve

just got to roll with the punches.”

The sailing couple have not

wasted their time though. In

May, they sailed around the

British Isles.

“Luckily, we had few disagreements

and really enjoyed each

other’s company. It was a good

tester for how we could cope,”

Shrewsbury said.

“It was wonderful sailing as

it was all new to us both. It was

also challenging with the new

currents and tides and all the

traffic to be aware of . . . there are

huge wind farms, navy ships and

we even saw a submarine.”

“Nothing compares to sailing

in New Zealand though.”

In October, they removed their

boat from the water and have

began to prepare it for when they

can depart.

The sailing dream has been a

lifetime in the making; boating

and the ocean being the great

passion of Shrewsbury’s life.

Shrewsbury was born in

Cambridge, England, “about the

furthest you can get from the

sea,” she said.

In spite of being surrounded

by rolling hills instead of crashing

waves, Shrewsbury started

sailing at the age of three and

sailed almost every weekend

during her childhood.

It was a family affair.

Sailing was something that her

father had always wanted to try,

and he rallied together his wife

ADVENTURE:

Helen

Shrewsbury

and Stephen

Prendergast

from the UK

to Lyttelton

when borders

around the

world reopen.

and four daughters.

Her father believed “a family

that plays together stays together.”

Their weekends and holidays

were spent out in the ocean

where the family competed both

with each other and against each

other.

Said Shrewsbury: “I’ve been

sailing all my life.

“The connection you have and

the memories you create with

your family is something I feel

incredibly lucky to have shared.

We always have something to

agree on or talk about.”

While in Perth in 1987, watching

the America’s Cup, Shrewsbury

met her first husband, who

was a Kiwi.

At the end of the 1990s,

Shrewsbury and her family, including

her two young children,

settled in Lyttelton.

Prior to the move, Shrewsbury

had visited Lyttelton to see a

friend. As soon as she walked

down the main street, she knew

she wanted to make it her home.

“I felt a connection with the

place with has never ended.

There is a special vibe there

within the community,” she said.

Shrewsbury brought up her

family in the port and lived there

for the next 20 years.

She had numerous sailing adventures

during this time, joining

the Naval Point Yacht Club

and racing a 22ft trailer-sailer

every weekend.

It was the lifestyle and the sailing

environment which fuelled

Shrewsbury’s sailing passion.

“I love the challenge of sailing

and the freedom I feel when I am

on the water,” she said.

“I can let go of any pressure or

any stress. I feel myself relax.”

Lyttelton Harbour is a special

place for Shrewsbury. Almost

every time she went out she saw

dolphins.

After her first marriage split

up, Shrewsbury decided a change

was needed and she wanted to

discover new seas.

“I spent a lot of time with

my girlfriends sailing around

the fantastic bays of the Banks

Peninsula but I really wanted to

go somewhere different, where

I could continue to enjoy the

beauty New Zealand has to

offer,” she said.

“I had to follow my dreams.”

She moved her New Zealand-designed

Whiting 29 boat

to Auckland and then two years

later, she met Prendergast.

Prendergast had only been

sailing once before, but Shrewsbury

showed him the ropes. As

the lead sailor, Shrewsbury has

found it frustrating how she is

treated as a woman.

“It is unusual for the woman to

be a sailor where the man isn’t,”

she said.

“Lots of people, particularly

in the UK, find it difficult to

accept.”

In spite of leaving, Shrewsbury

still has a strong connection with

Lyttelton.

She said: “I love going back to

Lyttelton. I don’t feel like I have

ever left. A sense of belonging is

really hard to find but you could

find it there. I’m really proud to

have brought my children up

there.”

Shrewsbury and Prendergast

were married in 2020 on Banks

Peninsula.

“We are looking forward to

starting our journey back to New

Zealand.”

Shrewsbury said in their cabin,

they have a photo taken by a

friend of Mitre Peak in Fiordland.

“It’s a reminder of the land

we’re aiming for,” she said.

The Bravest Voices by Ida Cook

This timeless memoir documents two sisters’ bravery leading up

to WWII — a singular historical account that shines a light on

one of humanity’s darkest hours.

Ida and Louise Cook are two ordinary Englishwomen,

seemingly destined never to stray from their quiet London

suburb and comfortable jobs — Ida as a budding romance

novelist and Louise as a civil service typist. But in 1923,

a chance hearing of an aria from Madame Butterfly sparked

a passion for opera in the sisters that led to the formation of

friendships with some of Europe’s leading singers and their network,

many of them Jewish. As the Nazis rose to power, Ida and Louise began

working with the opera world’s insiders to save members of the community from

persecution and death. Through ingenuity, thrift and bottomless goodwill, the sisters

eluded the suspicion of the Nazis and helped secure safe passage for dozens of refugees.

No one would have predicted such daring lives for Ida and Louise Cook — but that

underestimation is exactly how they were able to save lives.

First published in 1950, Ida’s memoir of the adventures she and Louise shared remains

as fresh, vital and entertaining as the woman who wrote it, and is a moving testament to

the extraordinary acts of courage by two everyday heroes.

Sparks Like Stars by Nadia Hashimi

Kabul, 1978: The daughter of a prominent family, Sitara Zamani lives a privileged life in

Afghanistan’s thriving cosmopolitan capital. The 1970s are a time of remarkable promise

under the leadership of people like Sardar Daoud, Afghanistan’s progressive president,

and Sitara’s beloved father, his right-hand man. But the ten-year-old Sitara’s world is

shattered when communists stage a coup, assassinating the president and Sitara’s entire

family. Only she survives.

Smuggled out of the palace by a guard named Shair, Sitara finds her way to the home

of a female American diplomat, who adopts her and raises her in America. In her new

country, Sitara takes on a new name—Aryana Shepherd—and throws herself into her

studies, eventually becoming a renowned surgeon. A survivor, Aryana has refused to look

back, choosing instead to bury the trauma and devastating loss she endured.

New York, 2008: Thirty years after that fatal night in Kabul, Aryana’s world is rocked again

when an elderly patient appears in her examination room—a man she never expected to

see again. It is Shair, the soldier who saved her, yet may have murdered her entire family.

Seeing him awakens Aryana’s fury and desire for answers—and, perhaps, revenge.

Realizing that she cannot go on without finding the truth, Aryana embarks on a quest

that takes her back to Kabul—a battleground between the corrupt government and the

fundamentalist Taliban—and through shadowy memories of the world she loved and lost.

Bold, illuminating, heartbreaking, yet hopeful, Sparks Like Stars is a story of home—of

America and Afghanistan, tragedy and survival, reinvention and remembrance, told in

Nadia Hashimi’s singular voice.

Dear friends of Aotearoa,

To those of you who work at the ports,

thank you.

It’s been a tough twelve months.

You know who you are. Every fourteen days,

and sometimes every seven, you have had nasal

swabs or throat swabs. Every day at work, you

have worn PPE and kept physical distancing.

You are the ones who have been at alert level 4

every single day.

You are the unsung heroes, who have

unloaded the ships at our ports, kept goods

on supermarket shelves and medical supplies

flowing. Without you, we wouldn’t have had

presents for Christmas, toys for our children’s

birthdays, or chocolate for Easter. Without

you, life would have been a whole lot harder.

Thank you for your part in

keeping New Zealand going.

COVID-19

vaccine

for border

workers

Over 230 frontline workers at

LPC have now had their first

dose of the COVID-19 Pfizer

vaccine.

LPC border workers including cargo

handlers, marine pilots, security and other

members of the team are some of the first

essential workers in New Zealand to get

vaccinated in the fight against COVID-19.

The vaccine provides another layer of

protection for our border workers, who

remain focused on physical distancing,

using PPE and masks and having increased

hygiene and cleaning measures.

Our border-facing staff are also

continuing to undergo weekly and

fortnightly COVID-19 testing, depending

on their role.

LPC foreman Robbie Winder, who had his

vaccination in the first week of clinics, says

he’s excited to be one of the first.

“I’m happy to play my part to keep COVID-19

out of the country. Getting the vaccine is really

to support the wellbeing of New Zealand.”

As part of Robbie’s role as a foreman, he is

a main point of contact for foreign crew on

vessels that visit the Port.

“Every time there is a vessel in Port, there is

a foreman on the ship, so I deal a lot with crew.

“It’s great to have the vaccine to know that

we are as safe as we can be out there and we

can get on with our job.”

“ I’m happy

to play my

part to keep

COVID-19 out

of the country.

Getting the

vaccine is really

to support the

wellbeing of

New Zealand.”

As more doses are made available,

household contacts will also be eligible to

get the vaccine.

“I can’t wait for my whole family to get it.

It’s a big step towards relieving the impact

of COVID-19.”

The vaccine clinics are held on site and

run by Canterbury District Health Board

who work with Pegasus Health to provide

vaccination and testing clinics.

With a second dose required three weeks

after the initial shot, clinics will continue to

be held in the coming months to cover LPC’s

border-facing workforce.

Here at LPC, we have a

out more about why he enjoys

Port

scholarship

supports

next step

The winner of LPC’s Director

scholarship, Charlotte Holt,

is excited about the new

opportunities that university

will bring.

The annual scholarship is awarded to the

child of an LPC employee who is going into

their first year at University of Canterbury.

In February, Charlotte started study for a

double degree in law and history.

The scholarship was established after the

Christchurch earthquakes in 2010 and 2011

to recognise the hard work and commitment

of LPC staff to keep operations running in

difficult and uncertain times.

What does your job involve?

As a skilled general hand, we are involved in

a wide range of jobs at LPC. I operate plant

including the sweeper truck and mobile

cranes. I am also a certified diver, so I work

at the Dry Dock when they are switching

vessels as well as around the wharves in

the inner harbour. We also relieve in Marine

when they are short staffed as a deckhand

for the launch vessels. There isn’t much we

can’t do!

What’s the most unique part of your role?

The variety of work is great. One day, I’ll be

working on a digger in the morning, in a

crane by lunchtime and in a punt in the

afternoon. It keeps the job exciting.

What challenges do you enjoy in

your job?

Things can change just like that. You can

get asked to drop your work and head to

a completely new job that needs urgently

doing.

What makes you proud to work at the Port?

You don’t realise how much comes through

the Port and how, without it, the rest of the

city wouldn’t be able to function. From fuel

to supplies, our job means that so many

other people around Canterbury can carry

on with theirs.

Who or what inspires you?

I am inspired by my workmates. We have

a good team here, and they make this a

great place to work.

Charlotte’s father Chris Holt has worked

at LPC since 2010 and is currently Scheduling

Manager for the Container Terminal.

“I’m extremely proud of Charlotte, she has

worked very hard in the past couple of years

and the scholarship provides a fantastic

opportunity,” says Chris.

“I’m really pleased she is going to the

University of Canterbury and is already

embracing uni culture with open arms.”

Charlotte says she is nervous and excited

about all the changes university will bring.

“I’m looking forward to meeting new

people, exploring the campus and learning

more about the things I am passionate about.

It’s scary, but it’s part of growing up.”

Charlotte’s decision to study law and

history came from a growing fascination

with the subjects throughout high school.

“I am definitely stronger at writing and

loved my legal and psychology, history,

classics and theology classes.

“I think New Zealand history is important

for everyone to learn as it helps shape our

future.”

The double degree will take about five

years, and after that, Charlotte wants to get

into social work and criminal justice.

“A law degree is very versatile, and it’s a

great base that can take me anywhere, but

at the moment, I would like to work with the

New Zealand prison system.”

Charlotte wants to thank LPC for the

scholarship and helping relieve the financial

pressure of university.

“This whole opportunity is a chance to

learn more about LPC, and I am so proud

of my dad for being part of the shipping

industry as an essential worker.

“After receiving the scholarship, [LPC CEO]

Roger told me I was a part of the LPC family,

and it’s great to know I have that support,

tackling my first year of university.”

Coal dust

monitoring

results

Dust levels sitting well

below National Environmental

Standards.

Later this year, LPC will be applying to

renew our resource consent for coal air dust

discharge. As part of this process, we installed

a live monitoring station in a Lyttelton

residential area near the Timeball in order to

monitor fine dust levels over the summer.

For additional insight, we also added four

more dust deposition stations. These are

essentially gauges that measure total dust

levels over a given time period. Two stations

have been situated in residential areas, and

two are located on the coastal edge of the coal

yard, where they will help us understand any

potential impacts on the marine environment.

What we’ve found so far

We’re pleased to let the community know

that data collected by the highly sensitive live

monitoring station has shown that all dust

levels, including coal dust, are sitting well

below the National Environmental Standards

for Air Quality for PM 10 and the proposed

standards for PM 2.5 . That’s good news for

human health as it shows that even very fine

particles are at low levels.

Our dust deposition stations have shown

that dust levels have remained below the

limits set by our existing resource consent.

While this is a positive result, we would

still like to hear from residents who might

be experiencing dust so that we can take

samples in order to identify the source.

Please contact us at lpccommunications@

lpc.co.nz.

See the results online

You can view detailed results from our dust

deposition stations and preliminary results

from the live monitoring station at our

website: www.lpc.co.nz/community/coal-dustresource-consent-renewal.

Learn more in person

We will be holding a drop-in session

on 13 April 2021. If you have any

questions or would like to learn more,

please come along.

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 manager Tanya Jenkins writes

about a trial to save native grass

from extinction

The estuary trust is not just encouraging

estuary and wetland restoration projects

for the protection of the many bird species

we can find there.

Healthy and thriving native plants are

equally important, for example. Let’s look

at a historically famous plant - the Cook’s

Scurvy Grass, or known by its Maori

name “Nau.”

One of the famous stories of Captain

James Cook was his ability to keep his

crew relatively healthy by feeding them

“greens” to ward off scurvy that killed so

many sailors at the time.

Captain Cook was renowned for his

leadership skills, and in particular for

sailing around the world without losing

a single man to scurvy, for which he won

the Copley Medal in 1776.

He understood that fresh food, and

in particular fresh greens, acted as an

anti-scorbutic in keeping away the scurvy

disease.

Captain Cook and many other earlier

sailors used to harvest huge amounts

of this plant from New Zealand coastal

areas.

But due to coastal development, introduced

plants and animals, this endemic

(only found in NZ) plant is now classed as

“threatened” and found only sporadically

throughout the country.

In fact, now such a concern for the

threat of its extinction, that the Department

of Conservation prepared a Threatened

Plant Recovery Plan in 1998.

By trialling the reintroduction of this

plant in a number of potentially suitable

areas it is hoped that it will re-establish

itself.

Now, why is the estuary trust so keen to

share this information?

Because we are so proud to be able to

share that this plant has been introduced

in the Charlesworth Wetland Reserve by

ESTUARY MATTERS

Fussy plant that has

links to Captain Cook

DOC as a trial, hoping it will survive and

thrive here.

And guess what? It’s working. The few

introduced plants are doing well and is

spreading.

This fussy plant needs gravelled, open

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Flexible business

courses at Ara

Work, family and other commitments can

sometimes feel like a barrier to study, but

they needn’t be. Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

business degrees and graduate diplomas come

with a level of flexibility that make it possible

to work, study and have a life.

Part-time options and a choice of daytime or

evening classes mean you can create a schedule

that works for you. If you have pre-schoolers,

Ara’s City campus offers two on-campus

childcare options where your tamariki can be

cared for while you attend daytime classes.

Ara also offers comprehensive student

support services, and its tutors are known for

going above and beyond to ensure students

achieve their study goals. Olivia Smith says she

felt supported throughout her time at Ara. “The

tutors were amazing – 100% supportive and

they helped us every step of the way.” Fellow

business student Rachel Fraser describes her

tutors as “lovely” and says they cared about

students’ wellbeing and education.

As well as creating a flexible,

supportive study environment,

Ara offers extensive subject choice.

Its business degrees and graduate

diplomas come in a wide range of

specialties including accounting,

entrepreneurship,

project

management, operations and

production management, human

resources, strategic management,

event management, marketing and

sales and hospitality management.

Originally from Italy, Anita

Dazzi enrolled to study a Graduate

Diploma in Business at Ara, specialising in

human resources.

“I chose Ara because it had really good

graduate options and it’s very practical. I’d

already studied for five years so I only wanted

to study for one more year. I knew after a year

I’d have a qualification and skills that I could

start putting into practise.”

At university, Anita recalls being among

300-or-so other students in lectures. “The

lecturers wouldn’t know if I was there or not,

let alone know my name. At Ara, the tutors

have a real ability to share their passion

and engage students. They’re approachable,

personable and always there to support you.

If I had questions or I wasn’t able to attend a

class because I was working, they were happy

to meet me and go over what I’d missed.”

WINE

Rose setting its own

identity and style

with grape combos

• By Mark Henderson

AS ROSE becomes more

about its own identity

and style, we are seeing

less mention of the grape

varieties that produce it.

Two of today’s featured

wines have chosen interesting

grape combos, with the

Brennan example utilising

tempranillo and zinfandel

(they are the only winery

in Central Otago growing

this latter grape), while

the Helio is a tempranillo,

montepulciano and cabernet

franc blend.

What might otherwise be

a mouthful becomes simply

rose, and is all the better

for it.

Subtle but attractive nose,

flecks of strawberry and

An intriguing scent of

FOOD 17

Chicken pie will tempt the taste buds

Chicken and cider pie

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 tbsp oil

2 boneless skinless chicken

breasts, sliced or chopped into

small pieces

1 leek, sliced lengthwise then

finely chopped

1 medium apple, peeled, quartered

and sliced

1 carrot, peeled, sliced lengthwise

and cut in thin semi-circular

slices

2 tbsp plain flour

300ml apple cider

1 tsp chicken stock powder

½ tsp dried thyme or a few

sprigs of fresh thyme

a pinch of mixed herbs

salt and pepper to taste

1 x 400gm block or three sheets

frozen flaky or rough

puff pastry, defrosted

1 tbsp wholegrain mustard beaten

egg or a little milk to glaze

Directions

Preheat the oven to 210 deg C.

Grease a pie dish if using.

Heat one tablespoon of the oil

in a large frying pan and seal

the chicken in batches, stirring,

setting each batch aside once it is

sealed. Then add the remaining

oil to the pan and, when heated,

add the leek, sliced apple and

carrot, and cook gently until the

leek is softened.

Return the chicken and any

juices to the pan, then stir in the

flour, mixing well. Add the cider

a bit at a time, mixing it in with

a wooden spoon so the flour

doesn’t form lumps.

When all the cider is added,

sprinkle in the chicken stock and

herbs and stir in the mustard.

Simmer gently until the liquid

has almost evaporated, season

with salt and pepper and allow

to cool.

If using a pie dish, roll out

enough pastry to line the base.

Use the rolling pin to lift the pastry

and press it gently into the tin

with your fingers. Spoon in the

cooled filling. Roll the remaining

pastry to make a lid. Brush the

pastry edges with water, then

place the lid on top.

Use a sharp knife to neatly

trim the edges, then pinch, crimp

or use a fork to press all the way

around the edge to fuse the pastry

together. Use any trimmings

for decorations; a dab of water

will make them stick. Brush the

pie or pies with beaten egg or a

little milk.

Bake for 35-45min until golden

and crisp. This filling can also

be used for pasties or turnovers.

Hoisin pork belly

Serves 4

Ingredients

500-600gm boned pork belly

roast

1 tbsp canola oil

fresh flaky sea salt

2 tbsp hoisin sauce

1 tbsp lightly toasted sesame

seeds

Directions

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

If using a traditional pork belly

roast, remove skin. While roast

is cooking, rub skin with oil and

grill to make crackling.

Trim any excess fat off roast, if

preferred.

Brush with oil and rub with sea

salt.

Cover with baking film. Place

pork in an oven pan.

Roast for 30min at 200 deg C

then reduce the temperature to

170 deg C and continue roasting

until cooked, about 30min. This

will depend on thickness. The

internal temperature should be 71

deg C. Cover and rest for 10min

before serving.

Brush pork with hoisin sauce

and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Seared beef and couscous

salad

Serves 4

Ingredients

500gm beef fillet

1 tsp ginger

2 cloves crushed garlic

2 tsp brown sugar

1 tbsp oil

200g couscous

500ml chicken stock

1 red onion, sliced

½ red pepper, sliced

200gm pumpkin, sliced

½ tsp turmeric

1 tsp coriander

½ tsp cumin

2 tbsp olive oil

100gm beans, blanched

1 cup fresh herbs, chopped

roughly

Dressing

2 tbsp Lemon juice

2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

2 tbsp olive oil

This chicken pie filling can also be made

into individual pies, pasties or turnovers. It’s

not too late in autumn to try a seared beef

and couscous salad.

Directions

Place the beef in a small bowl.

Add ginger, garlic, brown sugar

and 1 tablespoon oil. Combine

well and set aside for 20min or

until ready to cook.

Cook couscous in the

chicken stock following packet

instructions.

Heat oven to 180 deg C. Place

red onion, pepper, pumpkin,

turmeric, coriander, cumin and

paprika on an oven tray. Toss in

the 2 tablespoons of oil and bake

for 20min until slightly brown

and cooked through.

Heat a pan to a high heat and

sear beef on all sides and place in

the middle of the vegetables. This

will also take 20min. Remove and

rest for 10min.

In a large bowl, mix couscous

with dressing and gently add

vegetables.

Place on a platter. Slice beef and

arrange with the salad.

Smoked fish and kumara

hash cakes

Serves 8

Ingredients

2 tbsp butter

700g kumara

2 lemons

400gm smoked fish

4 spring onions

¼ cup fresh parsley

1 to dust flour

2cm oil

Directions

Peel and cut kumara into

chunks and cook in boiling salted

water until tender. Drain well

and coarsely mash with melted

butter and the juice of 1 lemon.

Set aside to cool.

Combine flaked fish with

kumara, finely chopped spring

onions and parsley. Season well

with salt and pepper. Form

mixture into eight patties. Dust

patties with flour.

Heat a nonstick frying pan

with a little oil and gently fry fish

cakes over a medium heat for

three to four minutes on each

side until golden brown. Serve

Toyota Supra – return of a true icon

I KNOW MY son regrets selling

his Toyota Supra. You see, it

was a rare targa top model,

twin turbocharged and it had

had a manual transmission

conversion.

He still talks about that car

with much enthusiasm, and from

my time driving it I can recall it

was a ferocious, wild beast, hard

to tame but immense fun at the

same time.

It was one of the last Supras

Toyota made, until now.

Well, you could be forgiven

because the new Toyota Supra

isn’t entirely a Toyota, it’s been

developed in conjunction with

BMW and even gets a BMW

engine. What’s more, the sleek,

sporty, very desirable body shell

sits on a BMW Z4 platform and is

built in Graz, Austria.

I’m not knocking that concept,

and it’s not the first Toyota

collaboration that has been

successful, take its 86 sport

coupe, it was shared with Subaru

and has gone on to claim healthy

sales amongst a wide buyer

demographic.

The Supra, though, is

something else. It’s a car for those

who want a little more grunt in

their sports car purchase, and

being built under the influence

of Toyota’s vast manufacturing

machine you can guarantee

it’s going to last you for many

years to come and will be totally

reliable along the way.

Much like it was with my son’s

Supra, it was bullet-proof, no

matter how hard it was driven.

The newcomer is a touch of

class, its looks stunning, low, sleek

and sharp and is every inch the

desirable two-seater coupe you

would expect wearing that badge.

Under the skin there’s no

mistake it has a lot of BMW

input, the controls, displays

and materials are much the

same as you would find in other

models from the German brand.

Nevertheless, I’m hooked. It’s the

best of both worlds really.

The Supra lands here at

$98,990, and to me that’s a bit of a

sports car bargain, the evaluation

car was a limited edition high

spec variant that added an extra

$1000.

Buyers of the Supra will also

want performance, and I’m

pleased to report that the 3-litre

engine is true to the design of

the past. There are six-cylinders

boosted by a twin-scroll

turbocharging arrangement.

Toyota claims power outputs of

285kW and 500Nm, the torque

figure available all of the way

from 1800 to 5800rpm. If these

outputs look familiar, yes they

are the same as Z4 and the 340i

wagon that I evaluated in these

columns recently.

I recall saying that engine was

an absolute dynamo in terms

of strength, it is responsive and

constantly wanting to work hard.

The Supra will lunge from

a standstill to 100km/h in a

blistering 4.1sec, and will push

through a highway overtake

in 3.8sec (80-120km/h). These

are quick times and will satisfy

any driver who likes to feel the

urgency of a genuine sports

vehicle.

What’s more, the engine is

quiet and smooth, it howls a

little towards the redline but

that’s a traditional six-cylinder

characteristic, and a Supra buyer

would like to have the sound of

energy.

Drive is through an eight-speed

automatic gearbox, there are few

surprises there, quick, clean shifts

are on offer, and there are paddle

shifters if you want to change

manually.

Power is then channelled

rearwards, and the feel you get

from that is traditional, there’s

something about the push you

get from the rear wheels and, for

that matter, the Supra delivers a

forceful feel and sitting almost

above the rear axles all that

movement and feel is delivered to

the driver.

I took the evaluation car on

my favourite Canterbury high

EYE-CATCHING: Low, sleek lines of the new Supra compares well to the 1999 Kiddie-owned targa top.

• Price – Toyota Supra,

$99,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4379mm; width, 2026mm;

height, 1292mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

rear-wheel-drive,

2998cc, 285kW, 500Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.3sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

country run. The Supra feels

tight on the road and although

the spring and damper rates are

firmish there is still on board

compliance, you don’t get tired or

sore sitting in it for long periods,

it just feels so right, it is balanced

and controllable.

Sure, there are extensive

traction control systems, but they

aren’t put to the test. Huge rear

Michelin Pilot tyres (275/35 x

19in) have grip in abundance and

it’s actually quite hard to make

the rear playful while turn-in

up front is direct and feedback

of what the tyres are doing in

relation to the road surface is

TOYOTA

SUPRA:

BMW

technology

used

throughout.

communicated fully.

Powering out of some of those

tight corners, the rear squats and

grips,propulsion is mustered in

quickly, and if you need to stamp

on the brakes for the next corner

a premium Brembo system

generates huge stopping force.

You could well be excused for

thinking all of this fun comes at

the price of fuel use. Instead, you

may well be surprised, Toyota

claims a 7.7-litre per 100km

combined cycle average, much

the same as BMW claims with

the Z4.

My time with the test car was

surprising given I did explore

high revolutions on many an

occasion, it went back to the

dealership showing 8.6l/100km

on the readout. For the record,

at 100km/h the engine is turning

over at just 1600rpm, merely

sipping fuel at the rate of just

5l/100km.

There’s nothing quite like

the feel of a turbocharged sixcylinder

engine, I’ve hung on to

my trusty old Toyota in the event

finances would allow that to

become a project whereby I could

afford to hook a turbo kit onto

that engine, it’s the same design as

my son’s old Supra.

I’ll never be able to afford

a new Supra, but I consider

myself privileged to have had

a week with the evaluation car,

it certainly is something very

refreshing and is a car you would

never tire of.

However, you may tire of the

attention you will receive, never

before have I been in a car that

has received so much comment

and adoring looks.

REAL ESTATE

Architectural Classic in a Superior Setting

45 Main Road, Governors Bay

Auction: Thurs 15 April

from 11am, in rooms, Ray White, Level 2,

76 Hereford St. (unless sold prior)

3 bedrooms, 1 kitchen, 1 dining, 1 living,

2 bathrooms, 2 car garaging

www.rwferrymead.co.nz/OPA25320

Blessed with the most exceptional natural

surroundings and spectacular harbour views,

this architecturally designed Don

Donnithorne classic has undergone a

meticulous renovation to reveal a home finely

tuned to the demands of modern family living.

Beautifully presented and stylishly

modernised, the 255sqm approx floorplan

unfolds over three cleverly configured floors,

the main middle level offering an abundance

of living space, plus the master bedroom with

ensuite. An upstairs mezzanine area offers a

flexible space for a home office, teenage retreat

or extra bedroom, while the ground floor is

home to two double bedrooms and a superbly

finished family bathroom.

An undeniable highlight, the socially focused

kitchen exhibits modern simplicity with clean

lines, concrete food prep surfaces and premium

appliances, while the adjacent dual living and

dining zones flow seamlessly outdoors where

an expansive timber deck provides the perfect

platform for entertaining family and friends.

Simple, effective heating comes courtesy of

two heat pumps and a large modern log

burner. In-built joinery throughout ensures

excellent storage, while a sizeable double garage

is complemented by off-street parking.

Easily one of Governors Bay's finest properties,

the approx 1,866sqm private, bush-clad section

offers flat, easy access, a rarity for a hillside

property and comprises a series of attractively

landscaped zones for children to explore.

From this dream location, it's only a short

walk down to Sandy Beach, Governors Bay

School the village and the popular Governors

Bay Hotel and Cafe. This restful setting feels

worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city

life, yet Christchurch is an easy 15-minute

approx commute away.

Remastered for contemporary

living, this remarkable family

residence seeks new owners who

will value the space, tranquillity

and stunning lifestyle on offer.

Contact us today to secure this

stunning piece of paradise.
