• By Samantha Mythen

THE LYTTELTON community

has failed to rally together to

create a dedicated community

patrol, but one supporter is not

giving up.

In spite of receiving numerous

online support, no one showed up

to the meeting resident Rhodry

Yates had organised on Sunday.

Only Yates, Banks Peninsula

Community Board member

Reuben Davidson, and an

invited member of the City to

Sumner Community Patrol were

present.

“This is what tends to happen,”

he said.

“People say: ‘Yeah, I’m on

board.’ But then, when it comes

to taking practical action, it’s just

crickets.”

Yates said, in spite of the lack

of numbers, the meeting went

well and he is forging ahead with

practical action.

THE BEST of intentions

can often fall short, and that

seems to have happened with a

meeting to get people involved

in a community patrol (see

page 1).

Lyttelton resident Rhodry

Yates is trying to rally support

for a dedicated community patrol

in the port and surrounding

areas to curb what he and

others say is a lot of petty

crime. He should be applauded

for that.

The area is currently covered

by the City to Sumner Community

Patrol.

But nobody turned up to

the meeting - except for two

specific invitees, community

board member Reuben

Davidson and a City to

Sumner Community Patrol

member.

So either there isn’t the petty

crime that is being discussed

on social media, or nobody

really cares.

Long battle to beat boy racers

NEWS 3

In Brief

‘It’s a bit

like

clearing

gorse’

• By Samantha Mythen

POLICE ARE in it for the

long-term when it comes to

stopping boy racers.

Lyttelton police Sergeant

Gerard Peoples said the issue

requires a long-term effort.

“It is like clearing gorse, you

have to get on

top of it and

keep at it, otherwise

it will

keep coming

back. We are

in this for the

long-term,” he

Gerard

Peoples

said.

Lyttelton

police, together

with city traffic units, have been

conducting operations targeting

anti-social driver behaviour in

the harbour area over recent

months.

Peoples said they have since

been receiving positive feedback

from the local community, such

as residents from Cass Bay, and

because of this, know they are

making an impact.

In spite of these efforts,

Governors Bay residents are

still being woken up in the

early morning hours by noisy

vehicles.

A key problem area is the Dyers

Pass Rd, Governors Bay Rd

and Main Rd intersection.

Jessica Watson said she has

been woken up at least twice a

week between 1-3am from people

doing burnouts.

She said it was “such a shame”

as Governors Bay is usually such

a peaceful place.

Boy racers have long been an

issue but police want residents

to know it is an issue they

are continually working to

address.

Police data from the last two

months has shown complaints

received about boy racers in

Governors Bay has been decreasing.

For example, police received

10 complaints about boy racers

and general traffic issues

in January compared to six

complaints in February and

three in March.

Said Peoples: “We are aware

that there are still issues in the

Gebbies Pass area and that the

reopening of Dyers Pass Rd will

BIGGER

PROBLEM:

Boy racers are

a long-term

issue but

police want

residents to

know they

are in it for

the long-term

too.

result in more through traffic

but Lyttelton is a small station

with competing demands, so we

have to be very targeted in what

we do.”

Peoples is encouraging

the community to continue

reporting any boy racers, either

through calling 105 or by

reporting it online.

He said, although a unit

may not be available to attend,

reporting it will mean the local

police can accurately track when

and where the anti-social driver

behaviour is happening.

This will mean they can

tailor future operations

accordingly.

OUTWARD BOUND

THe Sumner Ferrymead

Foundation is providing the

opportunity for two residents

to take part in an Outward

Bound ‘classic’ course or an

adapted programme (for

those with impairments and

disabilities) in the Marlborough

Sounds. Application for both

these courses close June 19.

Refer to the website www.

sumnerferrymeadfoundation.

co.nz/awards.php for criteria and

application forms. Phone 0274 326

RESERVE MANAGEMENT

THe Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board recommended

that the city council accept the

control and management of the

reserve at 50 Bridle Path Rd,

taking over from the Department

of Conservation. The land area

will subsequently be managed as

apart of Birdsey Reserve.

PUMP KEEPS WATER AWAY

City council contractors worked

with Fire and Slice, a pizzeria,

in Sumner using a pump to

keep flood water away from the

business during the weekend

weather. Fire and Slice has

previously flooded during storms,

including in April.

INSTORE NOW!

NEW RELEASES

Churchill & Son

by Josh Ireland

A moving and revealing new portrait of Winston Churchill through the most important

relationship in his life - that with his son, Randolph.

Few fathers and sons can ever have been so close as Winston Churchill and his only

son Randolph. Both showed flamboyant impatience, reckless bravery, and generosity

of spirit. The glorious and handsome Randolph was a giver and devourer of pleasure,

a man who exploded into rooms, trailing whisky tumblers and reciting verbatim whole

passages of classic literature. But while Randolph inherited many of his fathers’ talents,

he also inherited all of his flaws. Randolph was his father only more so: fiercer, louder,

more out of control. Hence father and son would be so very close, and so liable to

explode at each other. As much as he idolised Winston and never lost faith in his father

during the long, solitary years of Winston’s decline, he was never able to escape from

the shadow cast by Britain’s great hero. The world, big as it was, only had space for one

Churchill. Instead of the glory he believed was his birthright, Randolph died young, his

body rotted by resentment and drink, before he could complete his father’s biography.

Billie Eilish

by Billie eilish

Billie Eilish is a phenomenon. With distinctive visual flare and darkly poignant lyrics

that are unparalleled among music icons of the 21st century, Billie is a musician

who stands out from the crowd.

Between her record-shattering award-winning music and her uncompromising and

unapologetic attitude, it’s no surprise that her fanbase continues to grow by millions

month after month. She is that rare combination of wildly popular and highly respected

for her prodigious talent, a once in a generation superstar.

Now in this stunning visual narrative journey through her life, she is ready to share

more with her devoted audience for the first time, including hundreds of neverbefore-seen

photos.

This gorgeous book will capture the essence of Billie inside and out, offering readers

glimpses into her childhood, her life on tour, and more. A must-have for any fan.

The Missing Sister

by Lucinda riley

They’ll search the world to find her. From the Sunday Times number one bestselling

author Lucinda Riley, The Missing Sister is the seventh instalment in the multimillioncopy

epic series The Seven Sisters.

The six D’Apliese sisters have each been on their own incredible journey to discover

their heritage, but they still have one question left unanswered: who and where is the

seventh sister?

They only have one clue - an image of a star-shaped emerald ring. The search to find

the missing sister will take them across the globe - from New Zealand to Canada,

England, France and Ireland - uniting them all in their mission to complete their family

at last. In doing so, they will slowly unearth a story of love, strength and sacrifice that

began almost one hundred years ago, as other brave young women risk everything to

change the world around them.

Bridge Over Troubled Dreams

by delta Goodrem

The emotional stories behind Delta Goodrem’s sixth studio album.

In her first-ever book, Australian singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem shares the intimate

stories behind each of the tracks on her sixth studio album, Bridge Over Troubled Dreams,

taking readers on a deep dive into her inspiration for each song and revealing the truth

behind the lyrics.

From the touching account of her birth – two months premature – to battling bouts of

missing home and many incredible self-discoveries along the way, Bridge Over Troubled

Dreams is truly the book of the artist’s life. She speaks candidly about love, family, highs

and lows, patience, freedom, faith, hope and survival, and how she uses lessons learned

to drive herself forward.

Delta’s heartfelt stories are accompanied by never-before-seen pictures from her personal

collection: candid behind-the-scenes shots, unreleased tour photos and even personal

snaps from her childhood.

Faking It: My Life in Transition

by Kyle Mewburn

Kyle Mewburn grew up in the sunburnt, unsophisticated Brisbane suburbs of the 1960s and

‘70s in a household with little love and no books, with a lifelong feeling of being somehow

wrong - like ‘strawberry jam in a spinach can’.

In this book, Kyle describes this early life and her journey to becoming her own person - a

celebrated children’s book author, a husband and, finally, a woman. She shares the dreams,

the prejudice and the agony of growing up trans and coming out, the lengthy physical ordeal

of facial feminisation surgery, and her experiences as a woman - good, bad and creepy.

This is a heartbreaking, often hilarious, candid true story about what it means to hide

from yourself, your partner and the world, and then to attain the freedom and acceptance

of being yourself.

A story with the bittersweet beauty you’d expect from the writer of Old Huhu that is relevant

for anyone wanting to know and understand the trans experience - or anyone wanting to

discover who they are and what they are meant to be.

Learning Exchange

re-inspiring Timebank

• By Samantha Mythen

LYTTELTON Timebank has a

new initiative that encourages

the community to share its

passions and skills with others.

It is called the Learning Exchange.

Community members run

workshops teaching others different

skills and knowledge on a

diverse range of subjects.

On Saturday, Marcia Bryant

talked fashion, helping workshop

attendees learn about picking

colours and clothing styles to suit

their specific selves.

The first workshop in April

was held by Pat Scott, who

shared her ideas of living in a

carbon neutral planet.

Another weekly workshop

focuses on mending clothes.

Participants meet every Tuesday

at 10.30am at The Shroom Room

when sunny, or in Lyttelton

Library when raining.

Timebank members can go

along to any of the workshops

and pay two timebank credits.

Other people, who are not

timebankers, are also welcome to

attend for a donation.

Timebank co-ordinator Jill

Larking said that over the years

EXCHANGE: Lyttelton Timebank members share their

passion for sewing and mending. PHOTO SUPPLIED

they have explored different ways

of reinvigorating the exchange

to gather new members and

keep old members engaged and

excited.

“The Learning Exchange is a

way to re-inspire and breathe

new light into the Timebank,”

she said.

The Lyttelton Timebank

was the first timebank in New

Zealand; their moto: “Creating

community, one trade at a time.”

Timebanking is a way to trade

skills in a community. Instead

of using dollars, time credits

are used as payment. Timebank

members earn time credits for the

work they do, and then use them

to ‘buy’ another member’s time to

get the services they need.

One hour of work always

equals one time credit, so everyone’s

time is equal.

Over the 15 years of activity,

the Timebank has seen more

than 800 members.

“Through trading, you meet

someone new, you learn something

new, you can create and

support the community,” said

Larking.

• From page 1

In discussion with Davidson,

Yates has decided to discard his

original idea of a petition for a

“better safeguarded community.”

“Petitions are great for lobbying,”

he said.

“But with this stuff, people

will happily sign it, and then

that’s it. But that’s not enough.”

The group discussed

putting up a billboard

advertising the patrol

with a call for new

members, as well as

passing out flyers with

information on who to

call if suspicious activity

is seen.

“We need to advertise

the community patrol

and get at least 20 new

members inducted and on

board,” he said.

Yates and friend, Lyttelton

business owner Matteo Sgaggero

are hoping to join the community

patrol.

“It takes nothing to complain

but a whole level of effort is

required if you want change,”

said Yates.

“If you want extra, you have to

do extra.”

Said Davidson: “Rhodry is a

great example of someone who

has spoken out on an issue and

who is also committing their

own time and energy to doing

something about it.”

Davidson hopes this will inspire

more people to commit.

“If they do, we will

end up with a dedicated

Lyttelton community

patrol.”

Lyttelton police

Sergeant Gerard

Peoples said: “I

encourage anyone who

is keen to be involved

with the community

patrol to become a

member.”

Police were not specifically invited

as it was just a meeting to

test the waters and gather ideas

for the patrol.

“If people want the Lyttelton

community to be safer, people

need to be on board, taking

action, sacrificing their time and

energy,” said Yates.

BNZ Akaroa closes its doors

AKAROA’S BNZ bank has

closed after 140 years of service

to the community.

Last Friday was its final day

and the staff were thanked by

the community.

The employees were offered

new positions in an on-call service

Akaroa Heartlands co-ordinator

Kerry Little said the closure

of the BNZ bank, which was the

only bank in the village, would

have a huge impact on the community.

“Another face-to-face service

has been lost,” she said.

Akaroa is in Rolleston.

This poses a problem to

Akaroa residents as an ageing

population and there is also no

public transport in the village.

The expectation is that people

will use online services.

Said Little: “This is just

another service we are

losing.”

“The bank is more than a

bank. The bank tellers know the

community really well. They

have seen children grow up.

They can check in on people

when they visit the bank, helping

the community to keep an eye

on each other.”

Akaroa BNZ has closed alongside

38 other BNZ branches in

the past six months.

BNZ said the decision to

close the branches is due to the

Group forming community hub at library

to support the library in other

ways, such as forming a Friends

of the Library,” she said.

However, a friends of the

library group was never created.

Andrews and Little are hoping

to form the group this year

though. The possibility is currently

being explored with the

city council.

Little said it is really important

to have a group like this as the

Akaroa community is isolated

and aging.

“We don’t have a shopping

mall or many places where we

can gather to talk,” she said.

“This is about having a hub

where people can meet face to

face.”

Andrews suggested the new

group could help support book

groups, organise educational

guest speakers, and run programs

for adults and children.

“This would help people to feel

apart of the community through

the service they provide,” she

said.

“It can be a special hub.”

Construction

of Redcliffs

school earns

major award

TE RAEKURA Redcliffs School

has been awarded the supreme

award at the New Zealand

Commercial Project 2021

Awards.

The school, constructed by

Naylor Love Canterbury and its

project partners, took out the

coveted top award along with the

construction marketing services

education category award and

the commercial project over

$15m value award.

The winning project team was

tasked with the challenge of constructing

a new school on top of

an important archaeological site.

The area was home to one of the

largest Māori settlements in the

South Island.

“This project responds to the

many challenges of the site,

including residential neighbours,

difficult ground conditions,

proximity to the shoreline and

archaeological significance,”

comments this year’s judges.

The $18.5 million campus

opened in June 2020, almost

nine years after the Christchurch

earthquakes forced the school to

relocate. It features 13 teaching

spaces, several administration

rooms, a library and a multipurpose

hall.

Harbour maintenance in good hands

Crew formed

company

named

after Last of

the Summer

Wine

• By Samantha Mythen

AT 10AM every Wednesday at

the Charteris Bay Yacht Club,

a group of retired and semiretired

people gather, including a

mariner, an engineer, a professor,

a couple of builders, a US Air

Force general, and a lawyer.

Together, they form the Last of

the Summer Wine Construction

Company.

Started in 1998 by avid seafarers

and yacht enthusiasts – Paul

Pritchett, Malcolm Pearson and

Ken Nesbit – the company helps

the community through maintenance

and construction jobs.

“Ken and I were both builders.

I was building boats with my

business in Church Bay and

Ken had just retired. We started

doing odd jobs over at Charteris

Bay,” Paul recounted of the

group’s beginnings.

“Then Malcolm joined, and we

put seats up along the shoreline

and started doing a few things

for the yacht club.”

One of their first jobs was

fixing the jetty, at what locals call

“Traffic Cops Bay.”

Paul recalled previous Bay

Harbour News editor Rob Davison

had stopped by and asked

the men what they were doing.

Ken piped up: “We’re the Last

of the Summer Wine Construction

Company.”

And in a spur of the moment,

the group was named.

The company had just three

members for about three years

but as friends and members of

the yacht club retired, they too

joined the construction crew, the

group increasing in numbers.

Alan Poore, had been living

overseas and in planning to

come back to New Zealand asked

if he could join the company.

With their cheeky nature,

the men requested Alan write a

formal application letter to join

the group and said he must pass

an IQ test.

Luckily, he passed.

The oldest member now is

nearly 92 with several in their

80s.

All of the company members

have been given relevant nicknames

of characters from the

BBC comedy the group is named

after.

Paul said he is “the short, little

grubby one, Compo.”

Ken, as “leader of the show,” is

Foggy.

Every Wednesday morning,

once the tea cups are empty and

the cheese and cracker plates

cleared, they don gumboots and

paint-covered clothes, and head

out to work on their next project.

Over the past 23 years, the

LOTSW construction company

has taken part in numerous

maintenance projects for the

yacht club, as well as for the

Head to Head Walkway, Orton

Bradley Park, and on Tug Lyttelton.

Some of their biggest projects

include assisting in the rebuild of

the club’s main jetty, rebuilding

the jetty for the boat Te Wharau,

stripping down, repairing and

repainting Te Wharau, extending

Te Wharau’s shed and building

a new trolley for the boat,

re-bracing the clubhouse interior

and re-cladding and repainting

the entire exterior of the clubhouse

in a brilliant sky blue.

The clubhouse was built in

1946, constructed by working

bees, and since then, as the hive

of the club’s activities, has undergone

many more modifications.

“I really enjoyed doing maintenance

on the boat Te Wharau,

who is about the same age as I

am,” said Philippa Drayton, the

group’s sole female member.

“Malcolm did most of the

painting and I was left with the

parts to paint where there was

almost no room to paint at all,”

she said.

Philippa joined the club in

2014.

She had been taking part in

a working bee helping out with

maintenance of the Te Wharau

shed. They did not finish the job

that day and someone told her to

come back on Wednesday.

That Wednesday, she was

introduced to the LOTSW construction

company.

“They seemed to accept me

with my skill set,” she laughed.

“Most of these guys have

an amazing range of skills – I

mean master mariner who can

climb anything and use sky

hooks, then engineers, farmers

and builders – real professional

trades,” she said.

Philippa said if she wants to

learn something new, she just

asks for help and the others are

more than happy to share their

knowledge.

The members of the LOTSW

construction company know

Rome was not built in a day, and

work is competed at a steady

pace accompanied always by

good humour.

“It does not necessarily look

like we do a lot,” said Philippa.

HARD AT WORK: Members of the LOTSW Construction

Company rebuilding a launching ramp at Charteris Bay

Yacht Club,

“But by the time you put in

eight hours times five to 10 people

a week, that’s a heck of a lot

of work.”

Peter Harding said every

Wednesday they are blessed

with good weather – the yacht

club is a haven in sunlight

breaking through the cloud-covered

city.

Jeff Morrison added that if the

weather is bad, there are always

cups of tea to demolish.

“But we do get a lot of work

done,” said Malcolm.

Malcolm, a nonagenarian at

91, is involved in most projects,

although, he’s not allowed up

ladders now.

In his youth, able-bodied seaman

Malcolm, ran across ropes

and climbed the four 180ft masts

of Pamir – the last commercial

sailing ship to round Cape Horn.

The barque was taken from

Finland as a prize during World

War 2.

It remains the only “enemy”

vessel ever to be seized by New

Zealand.

When Malcolm was very

young, his sailor father once ordered

him by saying: “You’ll never

go to sea with that drunken

lot,” however, Malcolm dedicated

his life to exploring the world via

the ocean highway.

Paul said: “We’ve always had

trouble holding Malcolm back.

He has absolutely no fear of

heights.”

A few years ago, a strong

southerly gale had blown a catamaran

over in the water and it

was stuck on a pile. The company

put a plank out to try and reach

the boat, and it was Malcolm

who walked out.

“No one else was game. The

wind was gale force,” said Paul.

Most of the members live

around the area, such as in Purau

or Church Bay, or they have

baches nearby.

“I’m the club’s next door

neighbour,” said Philippa.

“I live at the top of the driveway.”

Several members commute

from Christchurch for the weekly

catch up.

Jeff Morrison said he was

“sucked in” to the group. His

border collie Penny always joins

him at the meet-ups, constantly

nosing into the groups activities,

dropping sticks at feet in the

hope they will be thrown and a

game of fetch will commence.

Jeff was given a copy of the

Last of the Summer Wine TV

show for Christmas from the

group.

David Nesbit, Ken’s son, joined

the group after becoming a

“chauffeur” for his father. Ken

had a stroke and was told he

could not drive, so “young and

strong” David took him to the

meet-ups.

“I thought it was the least I

could do,” he said.

Retired lawyer Hec Dawson

said he joined the company “because

of the companionship.”

“It is something to do in my

retirement.”

Every week someone will turn

up at the yacht club.

“It’s a way of contributing to

the local community, picking

up some skills, it’s a good social

activity,” said Philippa.

However, as the group have

got older, they chose to leave the

strenuous work for others.

“Yes we move more slowly

than a 20-30 year old, but the 20-

30 year olds are out working and

aren’t available to do that work.

We older folk can get a heck of a

lot done over a period of time,”

said Philippa.

“We are just doing a little bit

by little bit but gradually, it all

comes together.”

The group was not allowed to

fix the clubhouse roof.

“We’re a danger to each other,

let alone ourselves,” chuckled

Paul.

Lunch is at 12.30pm. The

members head back into the

clubhouse for more tea, sandwiches,

and storytelling.

“Another Malcolm incident,”

recalls Paul.

They were moving a heavy

umbrella and were trying to lift

it up and put it into the hole.

Retired Brigadier General for

the United States Air Force Tom

Kuenning, a new member at

the time, was left holding the

heavy end of the umbrella, while

Malcolm and the others tried to

pull it up with guy ropes.

Tom, “left breaking his back

for 10 minutes,” said in exasperation

to Malcolm, “We’re in the

nuclear age, not the sailing ship

days.” He could not understand

why it was taking so long to lift

the umbrella up with the rope

system when there were more

“modern” ways to complete the

action.

Philippa comes back each week

for the stories that Malcolm and

the rest of the company share

about their life experiences.

“They say women can talk, but

these guys . . . well, once they get

going.”

“It’s good company, never

boring,” she said.

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 Tanya Jenkins writes

about the annual “Mother of all clean-ups”.

ON THE weekend of

Mothers Day (May 8) the

Estuary Trust, together

with Drinkable Rivers

group, the Avon River and

Heathcote River network

groups, Cassels Tannery

and City Care, conducted

the annual “Mother of all

clean-ups” event.

Forty-three community

groups (1009 volunteers)

plus 20 schools (approx.

1,300 students) collected

carelessly discarded

rubbish from our two

rivers’ banks and along the

estuary edge.

From Southshore to

Shag Rock and along both

the Avon and Heathcote

Rivers, volunteers spent

two hours picking up

cans, straws, glass, tyres,

polystyrene pieces, plastic

wrapping and bags, bottle

tops and more, which

otherwise would have

ended up in our rivers and

estuary, and from there in

our ocean.

Once in the ocean,

many of these items become

killing devices. We

have all seen recordings or

documentaries, or heard

of sea turtles choking on

plastic bags, birds eating

polystyrene pieces (thinking

it is food), animals cut

by broken glass and birds

entangled in litter.

Did you know that a

few years ago we found a

Hector’s dolphin floating

in the estuary, which was

killed after a single plastic

blue bottle top lodged in

its blowhole, causing it to

suffocate?

A whopping 2.6 tonnes

of rubbish was collected

(519 rubbish bags), plus

over 100 large items, 146

piles of dog poo and 19 car

tyres.

McCormacks Bay

sportsground had the

dubious honour of being

the “worse site of the year”

where just over 1200 food

and drink packaging items

were collected.

But one clean up event

does not solve the issue, as

next month there will be

more litter.

What can we do to stop

this problem? Think “High

Five – I can pick up five.”

When supporting a

sports game outside, going

for a walk with the dog or

just heading out for fresh

air and enjoyment, take a

bag and pick up just five

items.

Also remember to take

rubbish home and dispose

of it properly, including

your dog’s poo.

Do not litter yourself,

and regularly check the

gutters in front of your

home for litter, as this will

end up in the stormwater

system, then in our rivers

and estuary.

Imagine if we all did

that? We would no longer

have a litter problem to

take care of. It is too

easy really.

Locals helping locals

THE SUMNER Community

Garden is an organisation that

plants, cultivates and harvests

produce.

A small group of enthusiastic

gardeners meet every Tuesday

morning at Ko Taku Reo (formerly

van Asch School for the

Deaf) where they work on a

number of different gardens;

there’s the apple orchard, the

food forest, the heritage fruit garden

and the community garden.

And as any gardener knows, it’s

not just growing produce that’s

important, it’s the camaraderie

that goes with gardening with

others that adds to the enjoyment.

The Sumner Community Garden

had inherited a tunnel house

when it moved to the van Asch

site after the earthquakes, but 10

years on it was way past its use

by date so the call went out for

funds to buy a new one.

They approached the Sumner

Ferrymead Foundation for help

because of the synergy between

the two organisations – locals

helping locals.

“We have had a diverse group

of people who have worked with

us over the years” Kathryn Newbery

of the Sumner Community

Garden said.

“While some of them are

passionate gardeners others

may have come along because

they are new to the area and

want to meet others, or they are

recovering from an illness and

find gardening is a great form of

therapy.

“During lock down last year

we had quite a few people from

overseas who were staying with

their families and were unable to

travel home, so they too enjoyed

coming down to help with the

garden. Really it’s about the

people rather than the plants,’’

she said.

The Sumner Ferrymead Foundation

was established in the

early 90s to help locals achieve

their dreams be it in education,

the arts, environment, health,

sport and recreation to name a

few so supporting the Sumner

Community Garden was a natural

fit for the Foundation.

Said Jane Paterson, a trustee

of the Foundation: “Community

gardens are a wonderful way to

bring a community together, plus

it’s great to see surplus produce

being given to the local community

either through the ‘plenty to

share’ table in Sumner Village or

the ‘ninja produce drops’ where

residents discover an unexpected

bag of, say, tomatoes on their

doorstep.

“We’re always pleased when we

can help local residents, and it’s

even better when they can pay it

forward and help others too.’’

The Sumner Community

Garden is keen to recognise

those that help them so the

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation

logo will appear on the tunnel

house.

“We’ve had the occasional bequest

too so we want to work out

the best way to recognise those

people,” Kathryn said.

“Raising money is always a

challenge, so we really want to

acknowledge those that help us.”

And raising funds is not the

only challenge the community

garden faces; they want to future

proof the garden by recruiting

more locals who are prepared to

regularly join them on Tuesday

mornings.

No prior gardening knowledge

or experience is required, just

a keen interest to learn and get

involved.

“We love sharing this little

beautiful oasis in the heart of

Sumner and welcome everyone

of all ages and abilities; although

if you were strong enough to

dig and lift, so much the better,”

Suzie Kaschula, who has been

gardening at the community

garden for 10 years said.

FOOD & WINE

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Versatile rice can be used many ways

Rice is very much a

staple food, these

recipes are simple yet

tasty and can be served

as pre-dinner nibbles

or as part of a meal.

Arborio rice could be

substituted for the

sticky rice. In spite of

its alternative name of

‘‘glutinous rice’’, sticky

rice does not contain

the form of gluten

dangerous to those

with gluten intolerance

Sticky coconut rice with

fresh mango

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 cups rice, (glutinous)

2 cups coconut cream, plus extra

for garnish

½ cup sugar

1 tsp Salt

2 pandan leaves, (optional)

2 mangoes, ripe, sliced

1 garnish sesame seeds

Directions

Rinse the rice well. Place in a

bowl and cover with water up to

6cm above the rice. Leave to soak

overnight.

Drain the rice and place in a

muslin-lined steamer (or a conical

Thai rice steamer).

Cover with a lid, then allow the

rice to steam over boiling water

for 30min until it is translucent,

softened and chewy. While the

rice is steaming, tip the coconut

cream into a separate saucepan

and stir in the sugar, salt and

pandanus leaves.

Simmer for about 10min over

a very gentle heat. Remove from

the heat, allowing the leaves to

flavour the sauce.

When the rice is cooked,

remove the leaves from the sauce

and pour most of it over the rice,

keeping a little for drizzling over

the completed dish.

When ready to serve, spoon

the rice onto individual plates,

arrange mango slices or cubes

beside it and garnish with a little

extra sauce and sesame seeds.

Sticky rice cakes with

cheese and herbs

Ingredients

Cakes:

1 cup sticky rice

1/½ cups cold water

2 each: shallots, garlic cloves,

diced

1 tbsp olive oil

¾ cup grated tasty cheese

½ cup finely grated parmesan

cheese

¼ cup chopped mixed

herbs such as thyme, basil,

oregano

Flaky sea salt and freshly

ground black pepper

2 large egg whites

Coating:

½ cup breadcrumbs

¼ cup finely grated parmesan

cheese

Rice and

mangoes

are a perfect

combination,

add a

coconut

sauce for

extra taste.

Directions

Put rice in a saucepan with

water. Bring to boil, cover

and simmer for about 15min

until rice is cooked and water

absorbed. Drain and cool.

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

Lightly oil an oven tray.

Saute shallots and garlic in oil,

until softened.

Stir, together with cheeses,

herbs and seasonings into rice

mixture.

Whip egg whites until stiff

peaks form and fold in.

Form into large walnut-sized

balls. Coat in combined crumbs

and cheese, place on tray and

cook for about 20min until golden.

Stand for 5min before

transferring to a serving platter.

Great with chutney. Serve warm

or at room temperature.

Makes 20

Feijoa and lime muffins

Serves 10

Ingredients

3 limes

60gm butter, (melted)

2 large eggs

200gm plain flour

2½ tsp baking powder

100gm sugar

1 cup feijoa, peeled and

diced(about 6-8)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

Place paper cup liners in a muffin

pan.

Using a zester, take strips of

zest from one of the limes and

reserve for the top of the muffins.

Finely grate the zest of the other

two and squeeze the juice from all

three. Tip this into a large bowl

with the melted butter and eggs.

Whisk together until light and

fluffy. Sieve the flour with the

baking powder and fold gently

into the mixture with the sugar.

Finally, fold in the feijoas and

fill the muffin cups three-quarters

full.

Sprinkle the tops with a

little extra sugar and the reserved

zest.

Bake for 20-25min until

golden and firm to the touch

when patted.

Now is the time for rieslings to shine

• By Mark Henderson

LIKE A LOT of people involved

in the wine industry, I love

riesling, and have also sometimes

pondered whether it might be

riesling’s moment to shine in the

sun. It never does, as the broader

public just don’t seem to ‘‘get’’

riesling.

Visiting one of the major

supermarkets recently reinforced

this thinking.

There was but the tiniest wedge

devoted to riesling – they clearly

don’t feel they have demand, so

don’t stock them. That may make

some of the following wines

harder to find, but they are well

worth the hunt.

2019 Pegasus Bay Bel

Canto dry riesling

Price: $38

Rating: Very good to excellent

A whiff of struck match,

honey, apple skin, lemon drops.

At the drier end of the riesling

spectrum, fresh and bright, with

fruit sweetness underpinning it

all.

Quite a weighty palate, time

exposing a little apricot kernel

and citrus.

Easy drinking. Tried later and

this has fattened, the flavours

hanging forever on the finish.

May have been a little closed; I

may be underscoring this.

www.pegasusbay.com

2018 Pegasus Bay

riesling

Price: $30

Rating: Excellent

Subtle at first, yet attractively

floral with citrus, spice and sweet

fruit lift.

Powerful in the mouth, a

textural weight and richness, yet

retaining freshness and vibrancy

with the acidity deftly cutting

through the honeyed richness.

The flavours hang in the mouth

on the long finish. Already

delicious, but history tells us this

will amply reward cellar time.

www.pegasusbay.com

2019 Main Divide North

Canterbury riesling

Price: $20.99

Rating: Outstanding

A deeper, almost brooding

character with smoke, herbs,

apple and a lifted fragrance

building with air.

Full of flavour yet with a

lightness and delicacy in the

mouth.

Honey and summer fruits with

a little orange/mandarin zest, the

acidity neatly judged to keep this

fresh and lively. Super balance

and a gorgeous finish.

Superb stuff and great value

here.

www.maindivide.com

2018 Pegasus Bay Aria

Late Harvest riesling

Price: $42

Rating: Excellent

Musk and comb honey, spices,

red apple, white flowers.

Rich and weighty, almost oily

in its density, the musk and honey

driving the palate, adding spiced

apple, with the acidity sweeping

in to give this lift.

A hint of almond gives a

bittersweet note as a foil to the

sweetness.

Intense, powerful and a dessert

in itself, or perhaps pair this with

fresh fruit?

www.pegasusbay.com

2020 Felton Road

Bannockburn riesling

Price: $41

Rating: Outstanding

Powerfully floral and fragrant

with honey, lavender; a warm

baguette note with time. While

there is sweetness here, the racy

acidity neatly balances that

making it appear drier than it is.

This grows in the glass,

displaying its inherent power and

texture, completely filling the

mouth and drawing you back for

more.

The flavours hang on the lipsmacking

close. Delicious.

www.feltonroad.com

2018 Riverby Estate

Sali’s Block Single

Vineyard Marlborough

riesling

Price: $22

Rating: Very good

Floral and fragrant, herb, apple,

a spicy note.

The lighter bodied palate

continues the theme on the nose

and while clean and fresh it

initially feels somewhat reticent.

Aeration allows this to come out

of its shell, with fruit sweetness

growing as it builds in flavour

intensity.

Very easy drinking.

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.
