‘Dumb’ drivers caught at

114km/h in Lyttelton tunnel

• By Samantha Mythen

“JUST REALLY stupid.”

That is the response from

police after they caught two

young drivers speeding through

Lyttelton tunnel

at 114km/h.

The two

drivers, in their

late teens, were

caught driving

through the

tunnel from

Gerard

Peoples

Lyttelton to

Christchurch at

about 7.30pm

last Thursday. The speed limit is

50km/h.

Said Sergeant Gerard Peoples:

“This was a really dumb and

stupid thing where they weren’t

thinking about the extra risks

involved with driving through a

tunnel.”

They were following closely

behind each other and were

stoped by a patrol car travelling

to Lyttelton.

The police officer clocked the

excessive speed on his radar, did

a U-turn and followed the two

drivers who pulled over outside

of the tunnel.

They have both been suspended

from driving for 28 days and

have received a summons to appear

in court for excessive speed.

Police have the power to

automatically suspend someone’s

licence for 28 days for several

different reasons, including if

you are caught travelling

40km/h or more over the speed

limit.

Peoples said motorists travelling

through the tunnel usually

stick to the speed limit. If drivers

were caught speeding, it was

usually at about 70km/h.

Peoples called this instance

extreme.

“Some people don’t really

appreciate the hazards in the

tunnel,” he said.

“It is relatively narrow, it

often sees heavy traffic, there

are areas where there can be

water on the road from leakage,

tunnel maintenance and

cleaning and this can make the

road quite greasy being an extra

hazard.”

CRAZY: Two

young drivers

were caught

travelling

at 114km/h

through

Lyttelton

tunnel.

Peoples said crashing in the

confines of a tunnel could be a

major problem.

If there was a crash it

magnifies further problems

that can occur such as fire and

accessibility for emergency

services.

MADNESS. THAT’S all

that can be said of the two

teenagers who raced through

the Lyttelton tunnel at

114km/h (see page 1).

Years ago when I was

a reporter at The Press I

covered a horrific crash in

the tunnel, on a late Sunday

afternoon from memory,

caused by a group of young

guys on their way back to

Christchurch.

The driver lost control

of the vehicle they were in

at speed. The walls of the

tunnel meant there was no

room for other vehicles to

escape.

The offending vehicle

went up the side of the wall

like a skateboard ramp

and smashed into another

vehicle, causing carnage. It

was a shocking scene, the

innocent victims in the other

car had no chance.

Slow down.

Community board

weighs in on rock issue

• By Samantha Mythen

THE CITY council must

provide a plan to remove excess

rocks from Clifton Beach, as

requested by Redcliffs residents,

and now supported by their

community board.

The Redcliffs Residents

Association took a deputation

to the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community

Board last Wednesday.

They asked the community

board to request the city council

produce a concrete action plan

for removal of the rocks on

Clifton Beach.

These rocks were leftover from

roadworks done in 2019.

After hearing the deputation,

the community board decided

to pass a resolution requesting

an options report from the city

council for a plan to remove the

excess rocks.

Said community board

chairwoman Alexandra Davids:

“We are asking the city council

to produce a holistic plan and

time frame for when remediation

work can take place.”

They want to see an

explanation of costing, as well

as information on when and

DISAPPOINTED: Pat McIntosh with some of the rocks

that are sitting on Clifton Beach. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

how the rocks will be removed.

This is in spite of Environment

Canterbury telling the city

council in April that removal of

the rocks is not a priority and

no action is currently required

for removal. The correspondence

from ECan comes after they held

last year, the city council was

non-compliant with their resource

consents for the roadwork that resulted

in the leftover rocks, meaning

the city council is eventually

required to remove the rocks.

During the meeting, it was

asked why the city council is

spending money on commissioning

reports on the origin

of the rocks, on challenging

the finding of non-compliance

with their original roadworks

consents and on seeking legal

opinions, instead of making a

plan for the rocks’ removal.

Residents’ association

secretary Pat McIntosh

said both it and the community

board shared disappointment in

the city council spending time,

money and effort on avoidance

measures rather than working

on a potential solution.

“From this length of time, it

is reasonable to expect the city

council is working on plans

for the rocks’ removal,” said

McIntosh.

She explained that although

currently, the rocks are not an

issue because they are covered

in sand, as confirmed by ECan,

the conditions will eventually

change and ECan’s order will

have to be re-visited.

“The city council needs to have

plans in place,” McIntosh said.

Davids said it was disappointing

the city council was

spending ratepayers’ money on

challenging the non-compliance

rather than spending it on remediating

the issue.

The city council is wanting

to challenge ECan’s finding of

non-compliance.

Said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis:: “City council

does not consider that there is a

breach of the resource consent

and the non-compliance by

Environment Canterbury was

wrongly issued.”

She explained city council

held this view as it does not

consider the rocks to be ‘spoil’

or ‘waste material’ left on the

site, rather they are excavated

material that has been reused on

the site in compliance with the

consent.

NEWS 3

In Brief

FREEDOM CAMPING

The city council is calling for

public feedback on proposed

changes to the Freedom

Camping Bylaw. The bylaw has

been in place for five years and

it legally has to be reviewed.

The bylaw has generally been

working well, but city council

staff are recommending a small

number of changes, including

creating a specified area at Naval

Point in Lyttelton where freedom

campers can stay, and limiting

the number of freedom camping

spots to 18 vehicles.

CAR CRASH

Police attended a car crash in

Diamond Harbour at 4.30pm

on Friday. Only one car was

involved. It had left the road and

collided with a large boulder

causing it to overturn. Both

occupants were able to get out of

the car before emergency services

arrived and were lucky to suffer

only minor cuts and bruising.

Alchemy And Rose

by Sarah Maine

Alchemy And Rose was inspired by the last great gold rush on the west coast of

New Zealand’s South Island in the 1870s.

The quest for gold lured a flood of hopefuls from Europe, America, Australia and Asia

and it brought Will from Scotland, with a price on his head. A shipwreck at the mouth

of the Hokitika river also brought Rose, borne like flotsam upon a wave. It brought

others too, the disgraced and the determined, each with their own quest to follow.

Alchemy is the means by which men seek to turn base metal into gold but, for the

characters in ALCHEMY AND ROSE, there are transformations of another kind. They

come from the old countries to the new, and follow their quests through recklessness,

misadventure, mischief and attempted murder. From Scotland to the goldfields of

New Zealand and on to the booming cities of Victorian Australia they wrestle with fate

to find their fortunes.

Other People’s Houses

by Kelli Hawkins

The perfect house. The perfect family. Too good to be true.

Kate Webb still grieves over the loss of her young son. Ten years on, she spends her weekends

hungover, attending open houses on Sydney’s wealthy north shore and imagining the lives

of the people who live there.

Then Kate visits the Harding house - the perfect house with, it seems, the perfect family. A

photograph captures a kind-looking man, a beautiful woman she knew at university, and a

boy - a boy that for one heartbreaking moment she believes is her own son.

When her curiosity turns to obsession, she uncovers the cracks that lie beneath a glossy

facade of perfection, sordid truths she could never have imagined.

But is it her imagination? As events start to spiral dangerously out of control, could the real

threat come from Kate herself?

The Last Truehart

by darry Fraser

A woman alone and a charismatic private detective are caught up in a dangerous quest

to discover her true identity in this thrilling historical adventure romance set in 19th

century Victoria, from a bestselling Australian author.

1898, Geelong, Victoria. Stella Truehart is all alone in the world. Her good-for-nothing

husband has died violently at the hands of an unknown assailant. Her mother is dead,

her father deserted them before she was born, and now her kindly Truehart grandparents

are also in their graves. Private detective Bendigo Barrett has been tasked with finding

Stella. He believes his client’s intentions are good, but it is evident that someone with

darker motives is also seeking her. For her own part Stella is fiercely independent, but as

danger mounts she agrees to work with Bendigo and before long they travel together to

Sydney to meet his mysterious client where they discover more questions than answers.

What role do a stolen precious jewel and a long-ago US Civil War ship play in Stella’s

story? Will sudden bloodshed prevent the resolution of the mystery and stand in the way

of her feelings for Bendigo? It is time, at last, for the truth to be revealed...

Pretty Things

by Janelle Brown

Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy liberal arts degree would lead to a fulfilling

career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her

wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan. Nina learned from the best: Her mother was the original con

artist, hustling to give her daughter a decent childhood despite their wayward life. But when

her mom gets sick, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, even if it means running her

most audacious, dangerous scam yet.

Vanessa is a privileged young heiress who wanted to make her mark in the world. Instead

she becomes an Instagram influencer - traveling the globe, receiving free clothes and

products, and posing for pictures in exotic locales. But behind the covetable facade is a life

marked by tragedy. After a broken engagement, Vanessa retreats to her family’s sprawling

mountain estate, Stonehaven: a mansion of dark secrets not just from Vanessa’s past, but

from that of a lost and troubled girl named Nina. Nina’s, Vanessa’s, and Lachlan’s paths

collide here, on the cold shores of Lake Tahoe, where their intertwined lives give way to a

winter of aspiration and desire, duplicity and revenge.

Someone We Know

by Shari Lapena

It can be hard keeping secrets in a tight-knit neighbourhood.

In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets - one where everyone is polite and friendly

- an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses.

‘I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.’

Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate,

suspicion mounts.

And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches breaking point.

Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice

people go to protect their secrets?

Maybe you don’t know your neighbour as well as you thought you did . . .

VOLUNTEER firefighters

wearing 25kg of kit will tackle

1103 steps up 51 flights of

Auckland’s Sky Tower on

Saturday.

The sweat-fest is all in the

name of raising funds and

awareness for the Leukaemia

and Blood Cancer Foundation

as part of the Sky Tower Stair

Challenge.

Rohin Palmer is the challenger

from the Diamond Harbour

Volunteer Fire Brigade.

This year will be his second

time taking part in the event.

“It’s definitely not easy,” he said.

“It’s more of a mental game,

telling yourself to not give up.”

Last year, he completed the challenge

in 14min 26sec. He’s hoping

to clock in around that time again,

or perhaps even beat it.

Palmer said it’s both a great

cause to support and a great

weekend away meeting other

firefighters from around the

country.

“We all know someone who

has had cancer or been lost to

cancer,” he said.

“It’s good to do this challenge

on their behalf.”

A team from the Lyttelton Volunteer

Fire Brigade is also competing.

They are Andrew Legge,

Craig Smith, Peter Lauryssens,

Coral Mazlin-Hill, Walter Gray,

Philip Leabourn and Kevin Hurl.

Legge is the group’s leader and

it will be the fifth time he has

completed the challenge.

Every year he says he will give

it a miss, but every year he takes

up the mission.

He said it’s pretty tough but

usually “wings it.” His goal is to

complete the challenge in under

20min.

Legge’s favourite part of the

event is the dinner where a cancer

survivor guest speaker takes

to the stage to tell their story.

“There’s always certain stories

that stick with you and you

remember,” he said.

The Lyttelton team has been

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

training for the challenge by

walking up and down the stairs

by Lyttelton tunnel, although

Legge said with a chuckle, some

people have been training more

than others.

“Coral has been walking up

the stairs almost every day since

the first week of January, others

have been walking a few times

a week, I’ve done the staircase

about three times,” he said.

Mazlin-Hill said she looked

“quite the spectacle.”

During their training, she

wears ski pants, heavy gloves,

2kg ankle weights and a 20kg

weight vest, attempting to

replicate the firefighting kit they

will be climbing in. The weight

is basically another third of her

body weight.

“It’s definitely a big challenge

but the fitness and strength gains

have been really relevant and

helpful for my confidence and

performances as a firefighter,’’

she said.

In the last seven years, Lyttelton

has raised $123,270 for the

challenge. Over the past few

years they have had a first, several

second places and a third for

fundraising.

Lifestyle choice for many living in the

The diverse settlements

on Banks Peninsula

may be small and

far-flung but they

are extremely

engaged. Samantha

Mythen reports on

the latest Banks

Peninsula population

demographics

PEOPLE LIVING in Banks

Peninsula earn, on average, more

than their Christchurch city

counterparts.

Twenty-two per cent of the

Banks Peninsula population,

aged 15 years and older, earn

$70,000 or more. This is higher

than for Christchurch city as a

whole, where only 16 per cent of

the population earn this amount.

The data is detailed in a wardbased

community profile created

by the city council based on data

from the 2018 census.

These have been conducted

since 2011, when the project

first began after the February

22 earthquake to profile the

worst affected suburbs across

Christchurch.

They are ‘snapshots’ of a

community at a certain period

of time.

Banks Peninsula Ward is

made up of eight census areas

– Akaroa, Akaroa Harbour,

Banks Peninsula eastern bays,

Diamond Harbour, Lyttelton,

Governors Bay, Little River and

Port Levy.

Geographically, the area encompasses

the entire peninsula

from the summit of the Port

Hills; 1150 sq km of hills, harbours

and bays.

Alongside, the higher income

levels, on New Zealand’s

Deprivation Index, the

percentage of people living at

the highest end of deprivation in

Banks Peninsula is zero.

In comparison with

Christchurch city as a whole,

Banks Peninsula experiences

lower levels of socio-economic

deprivation with 79 per cent

of the area rated as 1-4 on the

deprivation index.

The factors used to determine

ward’s deprivation scores were

people aged 18-64 receiving a

means tested benefit, those living

in households with income

below an income threshold and

people with no access to internet

at home.

The other factors were those

aged 18-64 without any qualifications,

people aged less than 65

living in a single parent family,

people not living in own their

home, those living in households

below a bedroom occupancy

threshold, people aged 18-64

who were unemployed, and

those living in dwellings that

are always damp or always have

areas of mould bigger than an

A4 piece of paper.

Living in Banks Peninsula is

to many, a lifestyle choice. It is

said to be the “playground” of

Christchurch, with diverse geography

and easy access to nature

being perfect for recreational

activities.

There are an estimated 8850

residents living in this primarily

rural area.

The largest township is Lyttelton

with an estimated 2982

people.

The largest age group living in

Banks Peninsula are those between

30-64 – making up more

than half of the population.

This is significantly more than

the 45 per cent population in

Christchurch.

Those aged between 15-29

make up the smallest proportion

of the population (only 11 per

cent), significantly less than the

22 per cent in Christchurch.

Sixteen per cent of the population

are under 15 years old and

20 per cent are aged 65 years and

over.

There are many holiday homes

scattered throughout the area.

‘playground’

In Akaroa, 62 per cent of

homes are unoccupied dwellings

– used mostly as holiday homes.

However, because of this rental

properties are difficult to secure

in the long-term and this is

limiting opportunities for young

people and families to establish

themselves permanently there.

House prices in Akaroa

are also inflated. The village

experienced the highest median

house price increase in New

Zealand up 58 per cent year-onyear

to $830,000 for the three

months to November 2021,

compared to $525,000 in the

same period the previous year.

Gentrification in Lyttelton

after the earthquakes has

also resulted in rental prices

increasing.

Although the Banks Peninsula

comprises of just two per cent

of the population under the city

council, it makes up 70 per cent

of the total land area.

This rural and natural

environment is highly valued.

There are 145 council owned

parks, including sports parks,

garden and heritage parks,

and regional parks. Many

volunteering groups active in

the ward focus on protecting

the environment, such as for

predator control and native

vegetation regeneration.

In spite of the small population

THE IMPACTS of climate

change and maintenance of

infrastructure remain clear

community issues.

Many Banks Peninsula

communities are likely to be

impacted by sea level rise as

a result of climate change,

including from coastal

erosion, inundation and rising

groundwater.

This can also create further

issues such as access to safe

drinking water.

With increasing temperatures,

there also comes the increased

risk of wildfires.

Due to the geographical

spread over a sparse and diverse

land area, Banks Peninsula is

made of strong communities

who take pride in managing

their environment and engaging

people in both leisure and

volunteering activities.

Community halls, local

wharfs, and reserves provide

“bumping spaces,” where

members of the community can

meet and engage.

For example, community

groups manage 16 of the 19 city

council-owned community

facilities, and there are five

volunteer fire brigades.

There are also 18 community

and residents groups, eight

community development and

support organisations and over

100 sports and recreational

groups.

The area’s foundations are

rich with history, which have

built the societies of today.

Many buildings and structures

are listed with Heritage New

Zealand.

The area also has a significant

Maori heritage with four Ngāi

Tahu Paptipu rūnanga.

However, in spite of the

heritage, the population

comprises of 93 per cent

European ethnicity compared to

eight per cent of Maori. This is

similar to the demographics in

Christchurch city.

distance between communities,

the risk of isolation during

emergencies is also increased.

Many communities can easily

be cut off, often having only one

road in and out of their settlement.

Because of this, communities

need to be as self-reliant as

possible.

A number of wastewater

systems are old and are no

longer compliant with new

regulations. However, the aim to

end discharge of wastewater into

Lyttelton Harbour is on track to

end by 2021.

Further work is needed to

consider the impact of sea level

“The bellbirds wake us up in

the morning. We can walk up the

hills in the afternoon,” she said.

Banwell, who is the Governors

Bay Community Association

chairwoman, said for the vast

majority of people living in the

Banks Peninsula – it’s because

they can afford too – and they

choose to as living there as it

aligns with their values.

These values foremost include

being close to nature, having

active communities and a village

life.

“We know where we live,

there’s village boundaries.”

Banwell chose to move to Governors

Bay after spending several

years in Australia. Her mother,

drove her over the hill, when

she saw the sun setting over Mt

Evans and thought: “It’s Central

Otago by the sea.”

This access to the sea, city and

nature, sealed her desire to live in

Banks Peninsula.

Banwell not only lives in the

Banks Peninsula, but she works

there as well.

She is programe manager for

rise on septic tanks in low-lying

peninsula communities, and

other aging wastewater systems

need to be addressed,

The maintenance of unsealed

roads and bridges remains an

issue in several communities

such as Birdlings Flat, Little

River and Pigeon Bay.

Although, the annual budget

for rural road maintenance in

the 2020/21 city council budget

was increased, and the Inner

Harbour Road Improvement

Project, from Lyttelton to

Diamond Harbour, is ongoing

to improve that connecting

road.

Whakaraupō as part of the Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour plan,

working to improve the ecological

health of Lyttelton Harbour.

In this role, she either works

Canterbury office in town, or in

Volunteers shape mountain bike park

• By Samantha Mythen

THE KEEN mountain bike

riders of Heathcote are pumping

their pedals through the valley,

planning winter working bees to

continue the build of a mountain

biking skills park.

Their first get-together was on

Sunday.

The working bees will continue

on the second Sunday of each

month throughout winter: June

13, July 11, and August 8.

Although more than 250

people are members of their

Facebook group, Heathcote

resident Grant Brokenshire

said usually only three to four

people turned up to the previous

working bees.

“The park’s progress is based

on the number of people who

come to help,” he said.

“If 20 people show up each

time with wheelbarrows and

a good attitude, it will be

fantastic.”

Brokenshire is also calling for

anybody interested in helping

build platforms and other timber

structures.

The bike park is next to

Truscotts Rd by Ferrymead

Heritage Park.

The idea for the park started

out as a family project. Last year

during lockdown, Brokenshire’s

two sons and their friends

wanted somewhere local to play

on their bikes. There were some

basic features already around the

place, but they were all quickly

improving on their skills and

wanted more of a challenge.

More and more features and

tracks were built, and it was

eventually decided they would

create a fun space where riders of

all ages and abilities could meet

up, play and learn new biking

skills.

Last year more than 300m³ of

clay was brought in to create over

50 features from beginner to

advanced skill levels. One such

feature is a 1.5m high step down

named Bob.

Brokenshire said more than

1000 hours of work have been

put into building the park, and it

has all been from volunteers.

“We want to promote

community engagement,” he

said.

This year they are hoping to

plant 500 native plants and build

50 more features, including

trials features for those keen trial

bikers in Heathcote Valley. A

They are built this way to allow

plan is to incorporate the

park with greater bike trails

Fruit used as fundraiser for food bank

• By Samantha Mythen

THE FRUITS of a community

organisation’s labour has

resulted in boxes of cleaning

products and personal hygiene

items donated to a food bank.

The Heathcote Valley

Community Fruit Harvesting

group made $180 in two hours

selling quince and marmalade

made from fruit off trees

owned by Heathcote residents.

This money, paired with a

voucher donated from New

World Woolston, was spent on

cleaning products and hygiene

items such as sanitary products,

razers and soap, which

were donated to St Ambrose

Church Aranui Food Bank on

Friday.

Heathcote residents Paula

Aitken and Amelia Knight-

Baré started the harvesting

group last year. They usually

donate fresh fruit, home-made

jam and marmalade to the

food bank.

A team of other volunteers

also help to make the preserves.

At their most recent interaction

with the food bank,

they thought of donating the

essential cleaning and hygiene

products.

“If you can’t afford to buy

food, you won’t be going to

the supermarket to get those

marmalade and jam from excess fruit in Heathcote

Valley, which they sold to raise funds for buying extra

products for the Aranui Food Bank. From left – Amelia

products,” said Aitken.

Aitken and Knight-Baré did

not know each other prior to

starting their group.

However, they were sharing

the same idea, wondering

about what to do with all the

excess fruit on trees in the

valley.

A mutual friend brought

them together and the group

was formed last year.

The goal is to pick unwanted

fruit from backyards and

orchards to share with those

in need.

Aitken explained ‘fruit fatigue’

is one of the issues with

fruit waste.

“Some trees produce huge

quantities of fruit, year

after year, which can become

burdensome to homeowners.

Busy people often lack the

time it needs to harvest fruit

trees, and to deal with a large

quantity of fruit,” she said.

Aitken said they are both

concerned about the rising

cost of living, and how this

filters to the families food

budget.

“We are mindful that fresh

fruit can be a luxury for some

whanau, so have jumped at the

chance to redistribute fruit

that would otherwise have

gone to waste,” she said.

Aitken said one of the most

special things was meeting

people in the community and

making connections, especially

with those who live alone.

“Heathcote Valley is a generous

community, and has been

a continuous source of support

for our initiative,” she said.

They are hoping to see more

community fruit harvesting

around Christchurch, planning

to advertise on community

message boards to link up

with like-minded people.

“We would love to see

community fruit harvesting

in every area in Christchurch,

and we’re willing to support

those wanting to start up their

own group,” Aitken said.

The group can be found on

Facebook – Heathcote Valley

NEWS

• By Samantha Mythen

IN 1954, a group of bright-eyed

and eager five-year-olds huddled

together for a class photo at

Sumner School.

Sixty-seven years later, on

May 10, that same group met

up at Scarborough Fare Cafe for

another class reunion.

Wendy Watson had flown

down from Wanganui. Sarah

Lovell-Smith had driven over the

hill from Governors Bay. Carol

Morton drove in from Oxford.

Russell Craw walked down the

road, still living in Sumner all

these years on.

The class first met up 25 years

after they had finished school,

in October, 1986. The idea for

a reunion was started by Carol

Morton and Linda Cave (née

Brady).

They explained the reason

behind their idea was simply

because they thought it would be

nice to catch up with everyone.

“We wanted to gather people

together,” said Carol.

“We thought it would be fun

and interesting.”

Without the ease of instant

connections via the internet and

social media, the two women

gathered addresses and phone

numbers from parents, other

relatives and phone books.

They then sent a letter to the

classmates they could locate both

in New Zealand and overseas.

Thirty ex-pupils and their families

showed up for the first reunion,

reminiscing over dinner and

drinks into the early hours of the

morning.

They have been catching up

regularly ever since then, with

reunions every five years, and

now every six months for those

who can attend.

Carol said over the years,

through their own detective

work and word of mouth, they

have located more of their classmates.

“One class member said it’s

like a family catch-up. Even if

you haven’t spoken in years,

when we catch up, it’s like nothing

has changed.”

Carol said everyone in her

class went in different directions

with their lives.

When they catch up, she said

there is never any comparisons

or no one “blowing their trumpet.”

At this latest reunion, Carol

said their chatter was paired

with lots of laughter as usual,

discussing the highs and lows of

their days at school.

Some classmates recalled being

cared for by others on the first

day as each other’s “buddies.”

Two women laughed about a

fight behind the dental clinic but

neither recalls why they fought

in the first instance.

Carol said they also shared

stories about their families and

working lives as well as their

lives now.

They all share special memories

of their standard five teacher,

Frank Wreggleswort. He kept in

touch with Linda.

Boat

Pose

POWER VINYASA YOGA

Many people find Apollo’s Power Vinyasa practice to be effective in

relieving and preventing back pain and tension-related types of pain

Boat is a tremendous pose for building strength throughout the mid-section

of your body. It calls for engagement of back muscles, abdominal muscles,

quadriceps and hip flexors. At the same time it stretches your hamstrings. Boat

strengthens your back, confers good posture, builds core stability, improves

balance and gives you a strong sense of self-esteem.

• Sit on the floor with your legs bent, your feet

flat on the floor and your legs together.

• Place your hands behind you around shoulder

width apart.

• Draw your shoulder blades down your back,

lift your chest and lift your chin off your chest.

Do not let your low back collapse towards the

floor.

• Now, bring your hands around and hold the

backs of your knees lightly. Lift your feet off

the floor and straighten your legs. If this is too

much for you have your legs bent with your

shins parallel to the floor.

• Reach your arms straight forward from your

shoulders. Again, if this is too much you may

cup the backs of your knees with your hands

for support or return your hands to the floor

behind you.

• Lift your eye gaze and take five long, slow

breaths before gently releasing down.

Pull in from skin, to muscle, to bone in boat pose

and generate a sense of lift and lightness in your

body. The strength you get from boat pose will

resonate throughout your life, whether in carrying

your child, picking up grocery bags, balancing on

a surfboard or maintaining good posture

Picture framing by

qualified craftsman

Lyttelton Picture Framing in London

Street offers high-quality picture framing

at realistic prices. Malcolm Carne has

owned and operated the business for

over 22 years and has the qualification to

undertake all types of framing – he is a

Guild Commended Framer (GCF), which

is a British qualification in conservation

framing.

“Conservation framing is

about making sure the artwork is

preserved inside the frame, including fitting

UV glass to prevent sunlight damaging it,”

Malcolm says.

He stocks an extensive selection of

mouldings to suit all types of artwork

whether prints or originals, ranging from

beautiful ornate styles to the modern

Scandinavian style of frame.

To complement the artwork and the

frame, Malcolm

has mounts in

a wide range of

colours, and he is

happy to advise

customers on the

right frame and

mount to set off

the artwork.

That artwork

may not

necessarily be

a two-dimensional piece – Malcolm also

frames memorabilia such as medals or other

precious objects a customer may want to

display on the wall.

Lyttelton Harbour 1886

and Lyttelton Heads

1881 by John Gibb

He carries out all

the framing on the

premises, with most

jobs completed within

two weeks, as long as the moulding is

available from the manufacturer, he says.

Lyttelton Picture Framing is located

at the Air, Sea & Land Gallery, a unique

gallery where the focus is on aviation,

automotive and maritime themes. The

fascinating display includes die cast model

cars, artwork depicting seafaring vessels

and cars, books, and

Christchurch’s largest

range of barometers

by German brand

Fischer, still made in

the Black Forest area

of Germany. So, for

Christmas gifts, there

are plenty of unusual items to choose from

here.

You will find Lyttelton Picture Framing

Subaru that won’t get your goat

THE GOOAT – greatest Outback

of all time is Subaru’s slogan

for its latest generation station

wagon.

It’s a kind of corny catchphrase

but there’s no disputing the claim,

the new Outback is surely worthy

of high praise. I see it as competing

squarely with European cars

of similar concept.

The reason for my statement

simply comes down to the quality

of build in the new Outback, it is

full of appointments, the controls

are extensive and the layout

borders on what you would get in

any luxury car.

Yet the Outback hasn’t lost sight

of its purpose, which is the reason

why it is the vehicle of choice for

recreational enthusiasts who see

the model as reliable transport in

and out of low grip sites.

And that is something Subaru

has done well with every iteration

of the Outback, it is a wagon that

could easily double as any sport

utility vehicle, yet it looks and

functions like a station wagon

should. Anyone who knows me

will tell you I like station wagons

and the cavernous load section is

full of purpose.

The Outback will also carry

five occupants in comfort on any

surface, sealed, unsealed or as

Subaru hints – on any goat track.

A few years ago Subaru New

Zealand adopted the policy of

selling all new vehicles here

complete with its symmetrical

four-wheel-drive system. It’s

worked well for the company, and

any buyer who has purchased a

new Subaru will have reaped the

benefits.

For one it is a complete safety

system, providing grip even when

you aren’t aware of it, plus there

is the other benefit of travelling

cross-country or off-road at will,

and that’s where the Outback

comes in, it lives up to its name

with 213mm of ground clearance

and suspension travel that deals

well to uneven surfaces.

On that score, and because the

evaluation car had seen some

loose surface travel, I drove

along the shingle tracks that run

parallel to the Waimakariri River

and experienced a soft, controlled

ride. You can certainly feel the

suspension absorbing the uneven

surfaces, and on a slippery, gentle

incline the driveline can be felt

working to keep wheelspin at bay.

Most of all, the Outback’s

ability to cocoon the occupants

with a sublime ride is pretty

much a miracle and is testament

to those who have developed the

spring and damper rates. I know

Subaru’s association with German

USER-FRIENDLY: Large screen and icons make using the

Outback’s display console easy.

SUBARU OUTBACK: Capable when tackling the high country goat tracks.

shock absorber company Bilstein

has paid dividends over the years,

today’s Outback capitalises on

that development.

There is little trade-off when

cruising the highway. The soft

ride could suggest on-road handling

would be jeopardised, that’s

not the case, even at 1675mm tall

the Outback doesn’t lean awkwardly

and gravitational movement

is well arrested.

Much of the Outback’s overall

handling prowess must be put

down to the quality of the tyres.

The Bridgestone Alenza’s (225/60

x 18in) are a new compound to

me and, although they can’t be

described as deep-treaded as

you would expect for an off-road

vehicle, they have a pattern that

copes well on all surfaces, they

are quiet and provide much information

to the steering wheel.

The loading in a corner is

well-weighted, the entire vehicle

is fully directional. I like vehicles

that give you confidence through

the steering and suspension, the

Outback’s front-strut/rear-double

wishbone system is fully informative,

the messages the driver

receives are very much confidence-boosting.

There’s also a bit of a surprise

under the bonnet, Subaru has introduced

an almost entirely new

engine. Well the boxer design is

the same as before and it’s much

the same capacity – a 2.5-litre. It’s

a four-cylinder unit I’ve long had

an affinity for.

Developing 138kW and

245Nm, the horizontally-opposed

unit is punchy and torquey, delivering

with a distinctive sound

• Price – Subaru Outback

Touring, $57,490

• Dimensions – Length,

4870mm; width, 1875mm;

height, 1675mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder

(boxer), fourwheel-drive,

2498cc,

138kW, 245Nm,

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km

that lets you know there is something

special sitting up front.

Drive is directed through a

continuously variable transmission,

one which Subaru has

constantly developed to the

point where it feels much like a

traditional automatic. However,

it has the advantage of a direct

transfer of power, there is nothing

lost through the transmission.

Consequently, the Outback feels

sprightly, there’s no obvious feel

of weight within the car, even

though it comes in at 1661kg.

Acceleration is strong, the Outback

will reach 100km/h from a

standstill in 9sec, and it will lunge

through a highway overtake (80-

120km/h) in 6sec.

On the subject of figures, Subaru

must be well satisfied with the

fuel usage figures in the newcomer.

It is listed with a 7.3l/100km

combined cycle average. That’s

achievable, when I took the evaluation

car back to the dealership

the internal readout was showing

9l/100km, that aided by a thrifty

4.7l/100km instantaneous readout

at 100km/h (engine speed

1500rpm).

The new Outback is available

in three variants, all with the

same driveline. The series starts

at $49,990, the evaluation car

was the range-topping Touring

at $57,490; in-between there is a

$54,990 X model.

The Touring wants for nothing,

it is a plush, luxury vehicle with

all the trimmings for comfort and

convenience. Full leather trim,

paddle-shifters, clever Eyesight

safety system, SI drive intelligent

drive modes, Harman Kardon

audio and heated and electrically

adjustable seats are all fitted.

I particularly like the large

central console display. It’s about

as big as any I’ve seen previously

in any car and it makes reading

and touching the icons so very

easy. The system displays are

deep and comprehensive, all

of these factors contributing to

why I rate the Outback as a full

luxury car market contender, yet

it offers so much more in terms

of ability.

As much as I enjoyed the

Outback, the Touring model

would be a little out of my reach.

However, my wife has been easily

convinced that the XV is the

Subaru for us as we look towards

retirement.

Subaru’s philosophy and

direction is proving to be a

winning combination, from

where I sit I can say without any

hesitation that interest is growing

strongly, drawing people to the

brand, and its fine vehicles like

the Outback and its stablemates

that are doing that.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991

CHRISTCHURCH DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 7

MANAGING SIGNIFICANT INDIGENOUS

VEGETATION

Christchurch City Council has proposed Plan Change 7 – Managing Significant

Indigenous Vegetation to the Christchurch District Plan.

Plan Change 7 proposes to amend:

a) The definition of improved pasture (contained in Chapter 2 (Abbreviations and

Definitions)) to improve its clarity and application within its associated rule

framework;

b) Six policies contained in Chapter 9.1 (Indigenous Biodiversity and Ecosystems)

to provide clearer direction that assessments of significance should be

provided as part of applications for resource consent to undertake clearance,

and how adverse effects should be managed in coastal and non-coastal areas.

The affected policies are listed below:

i. 9.1.2.2.4 - Mechanisms for the management and protection

of other indigenous vegetation and habitats;

ii. 9.1.2.2.6 - Protection and management of significant indigenous

vegetation and habitats of indigenous fauna listed in Schedule A of

Appendix 9.1.6.1;

iii. 9.1.2.2.7 - Protection and management of other indigenous

vegetation and habitats;

iv. 9.1.2.2.8 - Protection of indigenous vegetation and habitats of

indigenous fauna in the coastal environment;

v. 9.1.2.2.11 – Farm biodiversity plans; and

vi. 9.1.2.2.14 – Offsetting.

c) Appendix 9.1.6.6, which lists indigenous vegetation present on Banks

Peninsula and the Port Hills, and includes size and scale limits that indicate a

point at or above which the vegetation is likely to be ecologically significant,

and that the rules rely on for clearance as a permitted activity below those

limits. Five amendments are proposed to provide a greater level of protection

for the listed vegetation:

1. Table 1: Limit Descriptors – Occupying a contiguous area of

(hectares), canopy cover (%) of, and height (metre) of any

individual plants – Replace all “N/A” values with “0”, so that “N/A”

cannot be interpreted in such a way that the listed vegetation can

be cleared as a permitted activity without compliance with any

limits;

2. Table 1(c): Indigenous coastal vegetation – Extend its geographic

extent to the entire Coastal Environment of Banks Peninsula as

it is currently limited to Kaitōrete Spit and the listed species are

present elsewhere in the coastal environment;

3. Table 1(c): Indigenous coastal vegetation – Introduce a limit for

contiguous area occupied of 0.1 hectare (except for Kaitōrete

Spit in recognition of its significant ecological values, where “0”

(previously “N/A”) is proposed). The proposed maximum limit of

0.1 hectares for clearance as a permitted activity is limited to a

five year period;

4. Table 1(a)(i),(ii) and (c): Indigenous trees and forest and

indigenous coastal vegetation – Introduce a definition of

“contiguous” to include individual plants associated with larger

contiguous plant communities that are likely to be significant.

The effect is that plants are not cleared as a permitted activity

where contiguous; and

5. Table 1(d)(ii): Indigenous wetland vegetation – Introduction of

Three-square (Schenoplectus pungens) a key salt-marsh species

present within Canterbury wetland ecosystems that is not listed in

Appendix 9.1.6.6.

d) Introducing a new permitted, restricted discretionary, and non-complying

activity rule framework that applies to the clearance of indigenous vegetation

within areas of improved pasture in the coastal environment. This results in:

i. Rule 9.1.4.1.1 (Permitted Activities):

A. New rule P5; and

B. Consequential amendments to existing rules P1 and P4.

ii. Rule 9.1.4.1.3 (Restricted Discretionary Activities):

A. New rule RD7.

iii. Rule 9.1.4.1.5 (Non-Complying Activities):

A. Consequential amendment to rule NC1.
