Comedian’s work stretches

to cleaning up Godley Head

• By Samantha Mythen

SHAY HORAY’S weekend

started with a morning

stroll around Godley Head

and ended with a truck

full of other people’s

rubbish.

Horay, a comedian and

actor from Lyttelton – also

known as the Rubberband

Boy – was walking his dog

in the historic scenic reserve

when Riley got some broken

glass stuck in his paw.

Said Horay: “I looked

around, saw heaps and heaps

of rubbish and thought: ‘This

is gross’.”

Rather than taking to social

media to complain about

those who had littered, Horay

decided to do something

about it.

After getting back from his

walk, Horay posted an idea

on the Lyttelton Facebook

group.

He asked that any interested

members of the community

meet at the top of Evans Pass

at 10am the next morning to

“lend a hand on the ‘pick the

s**t up day’.”

Horay said he just wanted

to “get into it and go for it.”

Police issue

52 tickets

in one day

to drivers

ignoring

stop signs

POLICE HAVE clamped

down on motorists running

intersections – issuing 52 tickets

in a single day.

The campaign in Lyttelton

came after residents’ complained

about driving behaviour.

Said Sergeant Gerard Peoples:

“We recently noted local concerns

about drivers not stopping

at the Lyttelton stop signs

including some occasions where

pedestrians have almost been

hit.

“As a result of these concerns

we conducted an operation to

target stop sign runners. An

incredible 52 tickets were issued

in the course of one day, often

while police staff and vehicles

were in plain view.’’

Motorists were fined $150.

“Surprisingly, many people

thought they were give way

signs, and out of the 52 only two

were not locals.

“I understand that giving

out tickets is not popular but

people running stop signs and

putting others at risk is even less

popular.”

WORK TO remove the

apocalyptic graffiti poem on

the historic Lyttelton Gaol wall

by the primary school will be

completed in the next two to

three weeks.

Two city council parks staff

began the removal process last

Wednesday. Three sets of cleaning

products

have been

applied, paired

with scrubbing

work, which

has almost

removed the

wording.

The removal

will continue

this week.

Complaints

were first made about the poem

in September last year.

The lack of progress on

the removal of the graffiti

drew the attention of Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner who

requested answers from city

council staff on why the graffiti

was still there six months from

the first complaint.

The city council told Bay

Harbour on March 17 the delays

in the graffiti removal would be

resolved within the following

week.

However, there were further

delays as the specialised contractor

used by the city council is

currently unavailable. They had

been working to find someone

else to remove the graffiti in the

meantime.

As the wall is a heritage item,

a special process is required

to remove the graffiti and not

damage the structure.

“Being a heritage wall, our advice

is to use different methods

and chemicals for each material,

not as straight forward as normal

graffiti removal,” Turner

said.

Because of these circumstances,

a special contractor was

needed to complete the work.

Said Turner: “I have

encouraged staff to prioritise

this and I have been assured the

graffiti will be removed.”

Paul Dietsche, a Lyttelton

resident, was among several

people who reported the graffiti

to the city council via their

Snap, Send and Solve feature in

September.

Many residents said they did

not mind the poem, but opposed

its location right by a playing

field for young children.

Turner said he would be

following up the graffiti at

Magazine Bay as a separate

issue.

Concerted

effort to

target

speeding

•From page 1

Police have also been making a

concerted effort to target speeding

drivers and riders along the

main roads through the bays.

A significant number of speeding

tickets have been issued in

recent weeks, said Peoples.

“However, it astounds me that

motor-cyclists continue to ride

through the area in the manner in

which they do, especially after the

tragic death of one of their own

only a few weeks ago,” he said.

“Anybody can drive or ride

through these roads at speed but

the speed limits are in place as

you not only need to stick to the

road, you also need to be able to

stop in time when something unexpected

appears in front of you

such as coming across a broken

down car, a kid running out in

front of you or a car tuning in

your path.”

Meanwhile, Lyttelton police

will be conducting a number

of night shifts in the area to

disrupt and discourage thefts

from cars, much of which takes

place in the dead of the night.

• Gerard Peoples’ column, p10

• By Samantha Mythen

REDCLIFFS residents are

resigned that their village

upgrades may only happen in 10

years time.

If the city council’s draft Long

Term Plan goes ahead, village

improvements under the Redcliffs

(Main Rd) Master Plan will

only happen in 2030.

However,

the Redcliffs

Residents’ Association

would like

to see the village

rejuvenated before

then.

They have

made a submission

requesting the Master Plan

be implemented earlier.

After the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, the city council in

consultation with community

boards, created a set of suburban

master plans to assist with rebuild

and urban regeneration.

The Redcliffs (Main Rd)

Master Plan was adopted in

November 2014.

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh explained work on the

Redcliffs village street improvements

was meant to happen last

year, yet, the money allocated

to the project was deferred.

They thought it was because of

Covid-19.

However, this aspect of the

Master Plan has since been

assigned to the 2030/31 period

in the city council’s draft Long

Term Plan.

McIntosh said what disappointed

her most was how they

were blindsided by the Master

Plan being pushed back 10 years.

The residents’ association only

knew about this after reading

the draft Long Term Plan themselves.

The Linwood-Heathcote-

Central Community

Board has put forward the

recommendation that this

is a high priority and the

urban regeneration should be

reinstated for occurring at an

earlier period.

McIntosh said it should

be reinstated based on two

concerns.

She believes the village centre

is in need of general landscape

improvements and also needs

markers at each end indicating

to thorough-fare a village has

been entered.

“It’s not just a through road,”

McIntosh said.

will be a long wait

“We want to encourage people

to stop and use the shops and

cafe.”

Clifton resident Eric Smart said

he thought Redcliffs was becoming

“quite dead.”

“There aren’t as many people

wandering around the shops,” he

said.

Vinod Manu, owner of the

Redcliffs Dairy said the village

“needs a boost.”

McIntosh would also like to see

a lowered speed limit through the

village centre and

for this to happen

sooner rather

than in 10 years

time.

“This is

something the

Catherine

Sayer

resident’s association

has been

advocating about

for years,” she said.

“We are disappointed to see

this has no longer been given

priority for action.”

Said Redcliffs Pharmacy owner

Catherine Sayer: “It would be a

good idea if the speed was lowered

– we have seen the odd crash

out here.”

Redcliffs Butchery Brian

Jennings said there were always

many children walking down to

the dairy, as well as cars turning

on and off Main Rd. He thought

it would be a good idea to impose

the lower speed limit.

Manu suggested a 30km/h

speed limit as seen through the

central city.

Furthermore, it has been seven

years since the community board

was consulted about the village

improvements. McIntosh said so

much has changed since then and

a re-think on the plan is needed.

“We support a review of what’s

needed in the area, as the Master

Plan improvements are an investment,”

McIntosh said.

Said Jennings: “It was that long

ago, I’d already forgotten about

it.”

Admin and dental assistant at

Redcliffs Dental, Leanne Price,

agreed saying there was a lot of

change in the area.

“Quite a lot is up in the air at

the moment, such as the supermarket

closing,” she said.

“We need to get the plan

right and do these improvements

once rather than in dribs and

drabs.”

Sayer said the proposal to push

the village regeneration to 2030

was a shame but was understandable.

“There are so many other projects

going on in Christchurch,”

she said.

“For example, a lot of money

has been spent on the Coastal

Pathway through the village

and we’re very grateful for those

facilities.”

The Sumner Master Plan has

also been allocated to the 2030/31

period in the draft plan.

IMPROVEMENTS: Main Rd through Redcliffs may

now only see upgrades in 10 years time. Brian (left)

and James Jennings at Redcliffs Butchery hope to

The Sumner Community

Residents’ Association has

requested a funding amount be

released from the Master Plan

in order for the Village Green to

be constructed at the same time

as the skate park in the coming

year. This is supported by the

community board.

Its argument is that this will

reduce costs overall, minimise

disturbance for residents and will

make the site safer.

Sumner Hub co-ordinator

Charlie Hudson said fencing

was needed along the back of the

Sumner Green and it would be

safer to fence the whole area at

the same time.

Furthermore, water fountains

and rubbish bins only feature in

the green area. If the two projects

are not delivered at the same

time, the skate park will be lacking

these facilities.

“We also want the skate park to

not just be a silo facility for one

group.”

“Having the picnic area, means

the space is integrated for everyone’s

use. That is the vision for

the Sumner Green,’’ Hudson said.

Said McIntosh: “We now just

have to wait and see what the city

council decides when they take

into account the consultations.”

Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail

The diary of a Country Vet

by danielle Hawkins

Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail is the funny, illuminating diary of a year in the life of a

New Zealand farm vet With a husband and two children, 1200 sheep and 400 cattle,

farm dogs and pet lambs, pigs bent on excavation and a goat bent on escape, country

life is never dull. From calving cows to constipated dogs, weddings to weaning lambs,

daffodils to ducklings to droughts, each season brings new challenges and delights.

Sometimes it’s exhausting but it’s almost always a lot of fun - anyway, it’s all part and

parcel of the life of a Kiwi mother, farmer’s wife and vet.

A Biker’s Tale

by John Hellemans

An hilarious tale about an epic event, written from a unique perspective. To be able to

appreciate the story, the reader needs to be young at heart, have a vivid imagination and

a love for adventure. If that sounds like you, join the writer on his journey, and experience

his daily ups and downs with him. The Tour Aotearoa is a mountain bike ‘brevet’ (a timed,

long-distance cycling event) covering the length of New Zealand. It starts at the most northern

point of the North Island, Cape Reinga, and finishes at Stirling Point, just south of Bluff at

the bottom of the South Island. The Tour is held biennially and requires participants to follow

a set route covering 3,000 km which consists of existing mountain bike trails scattered

throughout the country and connected by back country roads. The Tour is unsupported, so

participants carry their own gear. To be awarded the brevet, the riders need to cover the full

distance within 30 days. The writer took part in the 2018 edition of the Tour. His experience

was different from what he expected. He encountered all types of challenges, from getting

lost to physical ailments, serious weather events and loneliness. In between he had plenty

of time to contemplate and let his thoughts and imagination run free.

A High Country Life

Tales & recipes from a New Zealand Sheep Station

by Philippa Cameron

Life on Otematata Station, a 40,000 hectare high country station in Otago, is busy and

varied. Philippa Cameron and her husband, Joe, who is the fifth generation to work the

farm, help care for this vast tract of land with 30,000 merino sheep and 500 head of

cattle. It’s a sparse environment completely at the mercy of the elements, bringing with

it many challenges and seasonal demands. Told through the eyes of Philippa in her

role as station cook, this is the story of mustering in autumn, lambing in spring, the

freezing days of winter and the scorching heat of summer. Along with looking after her

two small girls, her garden and various animals, Philippa feeds the teams of workers.

She collects and shares a selection of delicious, hearty recipes with other farm cooks

on her popular Instagram page @whats_for_smoko. This book also features Philippa’s

most trusted recipes, tested on many approving musterers.

My Mother and Other Secrets

by Wendyl Nissen

When Wendyl Nissen’s mother was suffering with Alzheimer’s, she told some extraordinary

stories about her background that Wendyl had never heard before. Determined to get to the

bottom of these family secrets, Wendyl found some wild and intriguing stories of loss, grief

and love. She uncovered new relatives, deeply sad adoptions, harsh parenting, complex

marriages and a few rogues. These stories often highlighted how tough life was for women

and children in an era when women had to fight for every bit of independence they gained.

This compelling, moving book is about mothers and daughters, ageing and the way deep

family traumas echo down through the generations. It is also spliced with wisdom on caring

for someone with dementia.

The Light of Days

Women Fighters of the Jewish resistance

by Judy Batalion

A fascinating history about a little-known group who took on the Nazis . . . The individual

tales of these courageous young women are remarkable’ Independent One of the most

important untold stories of World War II, The Light of Days is a soaring landmark history

that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who inspired

Poland’s Jewish youth groups to resist the Nazis. Witnesses to the brutal murder of their

families and the violent destruction of their communities, a cadre of Jewish women in

Poland - some still in their teens - became the heart of a wide-ranging resistance network

that fought the Nazis. With courage, guile and nerves of steel, these ‘ghetto girls’ smuggled

guns in loaves of bread and coded intelligence messages in their plaited hair. They helped

build life-saving systems of underground bunkers and sustained thousands of Jews in safe

hiding places. They bribed Gestapo guards with liquor, assassinated Nazis and sabotaged

German supply lines. The Light of Days at last reveals the real history of these incredible

women whose courageous yet little-known feats have been eclipsed by time.

A SHORT FILM shot on Banks

Peninsula, edited and produced

by Governors Bay resident

Scott Flyger is premiering at the

Tribeca Film Festival in New

York.

This year is the festival’s 20th

anniversary and Flyger is excited

beyond belief that Peninsula is

screening there.

“It is a privilege to be selected

for a pretty competitive and

top-tier film festival. Our film

was chosen by people who don’t

know us,” Flyger said.

“This shows that it appeals to a

global audience.”

Flyger is a long-time friend

of the film’s writer and director

Fiona McKenzie. After catching

up several years ago, they both

lamented over the lack of narrative

projects made on Banks

Peninsula.

An idea began to brew. They

discussed making a television

web-series focused on real and

heart-warming content.

However, in order to source

the funds to start the series,

Flyger said, they “needed to

put themselves back on the

map.”

Peninsula was born.

It was then shot over three

days in Port Levy.

Flyger said Banks Peninsula is

the fourth character in the triage

character film.

“It has so many extremes, big

clouds or blue skies, you never

know what you’ll get but it’s a

beautiful place each way,” said

Flyger.

The film follows actors Tom

Trevella, McKenzie’s son Jasper

Sutcliffe and Amber Ranson

they sent it away to independent

film festivals but Covid-19 led

to further delays for its

premiere.

Said Flyger: “It was quite wonderful

to get this news so long

after we started.”

The filmmakers are hoping

Peninsula will move the audience.

“Our measure of the film’s

success is connecting people,”

said Flyger.

“When people watch the film,

we want them to leave feeling

changed and uplifted; seeing

the world a bit differently than

before.”

The film festival was founded

by film producer Jane Rosenthal

and actor Robert de Niro in

2001.

It runs from June 9-20.

THE MOTHER of All Clean

Ups, where community groups,

schools and individuals alike

take to Christchurch’s urban

waterways to clean them up will

be held on Saturday.

Local groups taking part

include the Estuary Trust, Ferrymead

Rotary, the Mt Pleasant

Yacht Club, and the Redcliffs

Residents’ Association.

Avon-Heathcote Estuary

Ihutai Trust manager Tanya

Jenkins said there are three

places members of the public

can meet to help with the clean

up around the estuary.

People should meet at 10am

at either Ferrymead Park Drive

at the water’s edge (turning off

from Bridle Path Rd); the corner

of Settlers Cres and Tussock

Lane; or at South New Brighton

Park at the end of Beatty St by

the jetty.

Said Jenkins: “Wear closed

footwear, clothing to suit weather

on the day and bring gloves if

you have any.”

event on Friday.

The rubbish the school collects

will help inform the Lyttelton

community about where

further action is needed.

They will be clearing up rubbish

found in the stormwater

drains instead.

Launched in 2015, the Mother

of All Clean Ups has run every

year, with a home edition during

the Covid-19 lockdown.

During the 2019 clean-up,

more than 3.6 tonnes of rubbish

were collected from the city’s

rivers and the estuary.

The high five campaign is

also running alongside the

main event, where every one

is encouraged to pick up five

pieces of rubbish around their

local area.

ACTION: Lyttelton residents took to the Port Hills to clean up

rubbish during a spontaneous event.

2000 bottles collected

• From page 1

About 20 people from

Lyttelton, varying in ages, met

up on the Sunday and they spent

the next two hours clearing up

rubbish dumped on the Godley

Head grounds.

“Everyone had a smile on their

face,” Horay said.

“It was such a good vibe, just

‘let’s get this done’.”

The spontaneous event proved

to be extremely successful.

After two hours the group

collected seven car tyres, a stereo

system with sub and speakers,

more than 2000 bottles and much

more general rubbish.

It cost about $200 to dump the

rubbish. The money needed for

disposal was donated by one of

the volunteers.

There have been some discussions

on another clean-up occurring.

Many more people had

commented on Horay’s Facebook

post that they were eager to help

out another time.

“With more little groups doing

this regularly the better,” said

Horay.

“Sunday proved how much of

a positive affect small action can

have.”

Decked out Sumner Hub

van gets community moving

• By Samantha Mythen

THE SUMNER Hub’s van,

newly decked out with flash

logos, is seeing significant use

from the community since its

purchase late last year.

Sumner Hub co-ordinator

Charlie Hudson said the van is

well used by all sections of the

community, such as sports teams

and youth groups.

It is also used for school education

trips, transporting the

elderly to functions or shopping,

and is available for private hire.

Said Hudson: “At its core, the

van is used to grow community.

It encourages groups not only to

love where they live, but to also

explore wider Christchurch.”

The purchase of the new van

was made possible by the Ferrymead

Lions Club.

Said club president Bernie

Godden: “The Lions club is

delighted to see its investment

support growing community and

connection.”

More than two years ago, the

Sumner Community Residents’

Association asked the club for

assistance in raising funds to

replace the old van.

The club then ran fundraising

events, including pea straw sales

Newsom, Sumner Hub co-ordinator Charlie Hudson and

and sausage sizzles, from which

they donated $3500 to the purchase

of the new van.

A further $9500 was donated

from the Lloyd Morgan Trust.

Each Lions member in NZ

makes a small donation to the

trust each year.

The residents’ association

raised the remaining funds

needed. After consulting with

the community and community

groups to assess what they

needed, a vehicle was sourced for

community use in 2020.

Due to delays caused by

Covid-19, the new van was purchased,

delivered and fitted out

just before Christmas with the

help of Paul Kelly Motors.

Said Godden: “The van is now

fully branded with logos and is a

bright, cheerful recognition to all

the people that contributed to its

purchase.”

that the whole lot’s now part of

Takapūneke is a site of

significant history and most of

the land is officially classified as

a historic reserve, but the land

on which the Red House sits has

been in private ownership for

decades.

Takapūneke was once a

thriving commercial centre for

Ngāi Tahu under the authority

of Ngāi Tahu Rangatira Te Maiharanui.

This significant Ngāi Tahu

trading centre supplied

travelling vessels from Europe,

America and Australia in the

1820s.

The original Red House was

built in 1839 for William Green

and his family, who set up the

first cattle station in the South

Island. That house, which got

its name because it was painted

bright red, was destroyed by fire

in 1888. In 1924-25 a new Red

House was built to replace it.

Dealing with boy racers and bad driving

Lyttelton Sergeant Gerard

Peoples talks about

policing in the area

THE LYTTELTON station

comes under the community

services group within the

Canterbury district, which

means the staff here are

community liaison officers, or

what is commonly known as

community constables.

Lyttelton has a staff of one

sergeant and four constables.

Currently, one of the constables

has been seconded to the

burglary squad, based at central,

for 12 months, one is seconded to

the managed isolation facilities

until mid-June and another

will be seconded there for three

months in about two weeks’

time.

Each station in the city also

has community constables,

except for Christchurch South,

and Lyttelton staff cover some of

that area.

The primary role of

community constables is to

work with their communities

to identify and address areas of

concern.

One area that we have been

working on recently has been

concerns raised by locals

regarding driving behaviour in

the area, including anti-social

road users or boy racers.

Local police have conducted a

number of operations targeting

GERARD PEOPLES

Lyttelton Police

COMMUNITY: The Lyttelton station has a staff of one

sergeant and four constables.

anti-social road users with

support from district road

policing units. This has resulted

in a number of cars being

impounded, and a number of

drivers being disqualified by the

district court for six months.

A focus of these operations

has been to order vehicles with

noisy exhausts off the road as

the noise produced by these have

such a significant impact on the

residents of the area.

These cars will not be allowed

back on the roads until they are

corrected and independently

certified.

A significant portion of our

work is investigating complaint

files regarding matters varying

from protection order breaches

and neighbours at war to theft

and assaults.

This makes up the majority of

our work.

The geographic area that

we have responsibility for

community policing and lower

level enquiry files is quite a

bit bigger than most realise.

This includes the Christchurch

South station areas of Woolston,

Waltham, Sydenham,

Beckenham, Cashmere, and

Westmorland.

We also cover Sumner

through to Lyttelton, and the

bays through to Diamond

Harbour and over to Port Levy.

In addition to the community

liaison and lower level inquiry

files for the Sumner/Lyttelton/

Bays areas we are normally first

to be called to urgent matters in

those area such as family harm,

vehicle collisions and assaults, as

we are normally closer than city

units.

Having said all of that, there

are a number of centralised work

groups tasked with districtwide

responsibilities and these

extend to the Sumner, Lyttelton

and Bays areas. These include

specialist squads that deal with

burglaries, thefts of cars, fraud,

drug dealing, gang liaison,

family harm follow up and road

policing.

As station sergeant, I review

all offences reported to police

within our area in order to keep

up to date with what is going

on and to look into adjusting

what we are doing to address

emerging issues.

The boy racer issue is an

ongoing one and won’t be solved

overnight, but we will conduct

operations this month to

continue to address the issue.

On the matter of driver

behaviour in the area, Lyttelton

police have been making a

concerted effort to target

speeding drivers and riders along

the main roads through the bays,

with a significant number of

speeding tickets being issued in

recent weeks.

NINE-YEAR-old Victoria

Smith, a young fashionista,

has created a uniquely

Kiwi outfit out of beeswax

fabric to enter in the Toi

Wearable Art competition.

The event is for school

students and is run in collaboration

with the World

of WearableArt, which

also supplies the judges.

Victoria attends Heathcote

Primary School.

Victoria chose Aotearoa,

one of three briefs created

with WOW to inspire

her design. Pairing this

brief with her love of bees,

Victoria decided to create a

dress made out of beeswax

covered fabric.

Her eight-year-old sister,

Scarlett, also worked on

her own design, but with

the time restraints, she

took on a new role as

Victoria’s design assistant.

Parents cannot assist

with the creations, so the

sisters have been working

on their own volition –

choosing the fabric, making

a prototype, learning

how to sew, measuring,

cutting and hand-sewing

the dress together.

Using Canterbury-produced

beeswax, they also

covered the base fabric

with the medium themselves.

Victoria said her favourite

part of the process was

sewing, in spite of pricking

her fingers many times.

“The hardest part was

measuring and estimating

the length of the dress,”

she said.

Victoria is hoping to

wow judges in the wearable

arts competition.

Once the WOW

competition is over

Victoria and Scarlett will

re use the outfit and make

it into beeswax wraps

that they will then sell

to raise money for the

Club to help protect and

support bees.

Their mother, Raewyn

is extremely proud of the

work they have done.

“Victoria loves fashion

and she loves designing

outfits,” she said.

“It wasn’t about the final

product, but the making

of it.”

Night sky to light up during glow festival

Cindy Driscoll

HORORATA Domain is ready

to glow on Saturday with a

crowd of 10,000 expected for the

Hororata Glow Festival.

Cindy Driscoll, of the

Hororata Community Trust,

said tickets were selling fast. To

control numbers, there would be

no gate sales after a huge turnout

of 14,000 people at the last

festival in 2019.

“(This) was an overwhelming

response for

just our second

event,” Driscoll

said.

This year, to

manage crowd

size and Covid-19

requirements,

numbers

will be limited to 10,000.

“Our community is looking

forward to this magical festival.

We have heaps of new activities

this year, including the UV Art

Zone, Mitre 10 Mega Warm Up

Cube and a fairy tree, just to

name a few,” Driscoll said.

“We also have the popular

activities from past years

returning, like the hot air

balloon walk through, the

University of Canterbury

interactive science activities and

the glow circus.”

Live music from the Selwyn

Community Choir, Sam

Bambery and The Bluesettes

and Chilton House would

entertain the crowd until the sun

went down and things began to

glow.

The festival’s trademark night

MAGICAL: The festival’s trademark night glow promises to be a highlight.

glow would happen any time

from 5.30pm.

Michael Oakley, of

Ballooning Canterbury, is looking

forward to the event, as are

the attending balloonists who

will be travelling from all over

New Zealand.

“They are so excited to be

coming back to our community.

We will be flying for the four

days leading up to the festival

so keep an eye on the skies,”

Oakley said.

Getting the balloons inflated

and ready to glow required

a huge team effort. Weather

conditions had to be perfect, he

said.

The balloons would be on

the ground and lit up like

giant lanterns, glowing in a

choreographed performance to

music.

Following the night glow

will be a special lighting effects

display that promises to be a real

show stopper, Driscoll said. DJ

Craig Shaw would keep the party

going as he cranked the tunes,

getting the young and young-atheart

up and dancing.

Surrounding the activities

and performances will be 80

stalls, including food, wine

tasting, treats for the kids, produce,

and a huge range of food

trucks.

With large numbers expected,

people are advised to allow extra

travel time and arrive early. The

gates open at 3pm.

The event is weather

dependent and if postponed will

be held on Sunday. A call on

postponement will be made by

7pm on Friday, and announced

on the event’s Facebook page.

Restoration draws wildlife back to reserve

THISTLEDOWN Reserve

is situated in Woolston, at

Thistledown Pl.

It comprises only 2258 sq m of

wetland area and is the source of

the Steam Wharf Stream which

connects with Heathcote River

at the Lyttelton Roundabout in

Ferry Rd.

A small city gem – a true example

of the original Canterbury

wetland with freshwater springs

continuously bubbling up keeping

this pure and clean water

temperature in the steam at a

constant cool 15 deg C.

Thirteen species of native

wetland birds had been recorded

there and 18 species of them have

been non-native.

The most common native

species being the grey warbler,

silvereye and fantail.

Pre-earthquake, it provided

habitat for short-finned eel and

whitebait. The 2010 and 2011

earthquakes caused the creek

banks to collapse, trees to fall

over, bird and fish life disappeared.

Temporary water drainage into

the reserve had been allowed

from local properties resulting in

pollution of this waterway.

Willow trees were left to thrive

to very quickly take over from

the native trees as maintenance

of this reserve by the city council

has been reduced post-earthquake

events.

Some urgency was required to

do something as the paths were

disappearing due to weed growth

and the reserve became a wilderness,

where locals became afraid

to walk through it.

The Estuary Trust stepped in

after we received permission,

support and supervision by city

council park rangers.

In 2016 the trust rounded up

local residents and started the

huge task of restoring this special

little place.

Volunteers, supervised by city

council ranger Karen Smith,

meet every third Saturday of each

month between 10am and noon

where we prune, weed and plant

and are amazed and delighted

with the return of birds, eel and

whitebait.

We would welcome an extra

pair of hand to weed, prune and

plant. We meet at the Thistledown

Pl entrance to the reserve.

No need to book, just turn up.

WILD: A pathway has been

restored at Thistledown

Reserve as part of the Avon-

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Plenty of trick gear in Subaru’s

A READER emailed me the other

day. He had read my recent article

on the Subaru Forester hybrid.

I had made mention of the

horizontally-opposed (boxer)

engine that powers most Subaru

models, and how I related to the

design harking back to the 60s

when I first became interested in

motor vehicles.

Because I mentioned Jowett,

Porsche and Volkswagen the

reader suggested I had forgotten

other important manufacturers

that built flat-four engines – Alfa

Romeo and Lancia.

Sure, both those manufacturers

did produce flat-four engines,

Lancia certainly during the 60s,

but they weren’t commercially

available in New Zealand, and

Alfa Romeo’s flat-four came in

1971. I can reassure my correspondent

that I have fond memories

of the Alfa 33 that I evaluated

in 1989, its boxer engine was

indicative of the sporty image

that Alfa generated at that time.

This evaluation surrounds the

Forester, a non-hybrid model

new to Subaru’s books, of course,

powered by a boxer engine; it’s

a Sport variant also wearing an

X badge, a model that carries a

lot more cosmetic bling than the

model it is based on. The Forester

X Sport sits at $47,490, which is

bang in the middle of the range.

The series starts at $42,490 and

ends at $49,490 for the top-spec

Limited. Incidentally, the hybrid

model also lists at $47,490.

It would take some convincing

to get me into the X Sport, simply

because I find the entry-level

model more appealing, but for

those who want something just

that little bit out of the ordinary

in terms of looks, there’s no doubt

the X Sport has that appeal.

Bright orange cosmetic detailing

is used both inside and out,

there are orange accents on the

front, side and rear underguard

and roof rails, also on the dash

panel and centre console. The

seats are orange-stitched and,

in a nice touch, the cloth trim is

heated and is water-guarded.

To top it all off, the X Sport

SUBARU FORESTER X SPORT: High level of fitment for popular four-wheel-drive SUV.

model gets 18in black wheels,

the whole package is designed to

capture attention and it certainly

does that, it received favourable

comment during the time it was

in my care.

Elsewhere the X Sport model

gets plenty of other specification.

Major items include satellite

navigation, electric front seat

adjustment, keyless entry and

ignition, electric sunroof and

tailgate, and SI drive – Subaru’s

take on engine management

protocols – which can be

adjusted by the driver to suit

driving styles and the type of

journey ahead.

Forester X Sport

• Price – Subaru Forester X

Sport, $47,490

• Dimensions – Length,

4625mm; width, 1815mm;

height, 1730mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder

(boxer), fourwheel-drive,

2498cc,

136kW, 239Nm,

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

It must also be mentioned that

the X Sport model also gets the

latest version of Subaru’s clever

Eyesight technology, a driver

assist system that contributes

greatly to a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

The Forester in this form hasn’t

lost sight of its fundamental concept,

even though it looks racy,

it is still the genuine off-the-seal

sport utility vehicle that will take

you to places many other SUVs

would balk at.

The Forester with its 220mm

ground clearance, permanently

engaged four-wheel-drive and

X-mode driver selectable power

proportioning system is adept offroad.

Just like the XV I evaluated

recently, the Forester had only

done just a few kilometres so I

didn’t venture off the seal, but

DETAIL: Orange stitching and trim garnish is used

extensively throughout the Forester X Sport’s interior.

I can report from my previous

experience in the Foresters I’ve

driven before that it has substantial

cross-country ability and

will cocoon the occupants with a

controlled, comfortable ride.

That’s the essence of the Forester,

it has beautiful suspension, the

ride is almost soft, but such is the

compliance within the front strut/

rear wishbone system that it is

delicate to ride in yet doesn’t lean

awkwardly in a sealed road corner.

Steering feel is tight, and

the suspension can be felt

moving providing the occupants

with a secure feel, one that

exudes confidence at the steering

wheel.

Like its stablemates, the X Sport

Forester gets the 2.5-litre version

of the quad-camshaft horizontally-opposed

engine. It is rated by

Subaru at 136kW and 239Nm,

these figures more than enough

to propel the vehicle in good

speed, you can expect a standstill

to 100km/h acceleration time of

around 9.5sec, with 6sec to make

120km/h from 80km/h.

Drive is channelled to each

corner through a seven-step

continuously variable transmission.

Subaru has done a good

job making this gearbox work

and feel like a traditional automatic,

I like the noticeable way

it changes ratios and, of course,

if you want to lock it in to any of

BLING: Muscular looks and attention to detail characterise

the Forester X Sport.

the pre-set steps you can do that

by paddle-shifters or at the main

gearshift lever itself.

One of the most important

figures that a Forester buyer

would be looking at is that of

its fuel consumption. It seems

we are in the age where that’s one

of the first questions I’m asked

when an evaluation car is in my

care.

Subaru has given the non-hybrid

Forster range a 7.4-litre per

100km combined cycle rating

(6.7l/100km hybrid). During

my time with the evaluation car

it was constantly listing around

8.2l/100km with 6l/100km showing

instantaneously at 100km, the

engine turning over slowly at just

1500rpm.

In my opinion these figures

are good for a mid-size SUV, and

when you factor in the many

other ingredients the Forester is a

worthy challenger in the crowded

SUV market.

I’ve made no secret over the

years of my enthusiasm for Subaru

product, it just feels so right to

be in, yet the range competes in

the mainstream market. Subaru

will be quick to point out that it

sees its product as being niche

market, and to a certain extent

that is correct, but when you pitch

the Forester against the multitude

of mainstream models it does slot

in perfectly.

I guess that’s why there is major

appeal, the Forester is a lot of

vehicle for the money, and in X

Sport form there is just that little

bit of extra individualism that will

lure those who like to stand out in

a crowd.
