Couple thought honours

recognition was a scam

• By Samantha Mythen

WHEN FRANCIS and Shireen

Helps opened up their email

and saw ‘Queen’s Birthday 2021

Honours’ in the subject line,

they almost deleted the email,

thinking it was a scam.

On better judgement and

noting the formality of the

email, Shireen decided to read

further.

The Helps, who have

dedicated 40 years of their life

to conservation work protecting

kororā blue penguins and

hoiho yellow-eyed penguins,

and nurturing biodiversity on

their home at Pōhatu Flea Bay,

south-east of Akaroa, were

“surprised” to learn they had

both become members of the

New Zealand Order of Merit.

They shared a giggle when

they realised the email was

legitimate.

“We didn’t expect it, we are

just doing things that have to be

done, like New Zealanders do,”

said Francis.

“It was quite a surprise and

quite a thrill,” said Shireen.

She said it was a nice

confirmation what they had

done over the years had been

recognised.

WELL DONE: Francis and Shireen Helps were recognised in the Queen’s Birthday

Honours for their conservation work, which includes protecting kororā blue penguins.

IN ASSOCIATION WITH

Research

shows

high tide

increase

NEW RESEARCH has found

the biggest increase in high tide

levels across Christchurch is at

the Ferrymead Bridge.

The maximum increase was

84mm.

This, alongside other new high

tide statistics, has provided the

city council with a greater understanding

of the flood risk in

Christchurch’s tidal areas.

Engineering consultancy GHD

Christchurch, in collaboration

with Netherlands-based flood

risk experts HKV, put the statistics

together using advanced

analysis that looks at sea level

influences.

These include weather patterns,

such as significant rainfall events,

sea-level rise, and the effects of

wind and waves on the sea.

The companies were

commission by the city council,

which hopes to understand the

frequency of high water levels at

various locations around the city.

The research shows a slightly

higher water level for most

high tide levels than was calculated

when the statistics for

Christchurch were last reviewed

in 2018.

CHAOS: The damage caused by a drink driver and volunteers who turned up to help with repairs.

Drink driver ploughs into fence

• By Samantha Mythen

VOLUNTEERS donned gloves

and shovels and got to work on

Saturday after a drink driver

ploughed through The Bays

Kidsfirst kindergarten and

community garden fence in Mt

Pleasant.

The 44-year-old driver was

uninjured in the incident last

Tuesday night. He has been

charged with excess breath

alcohol and will appear in court

in July.

Community garden co-ordinator

Jocelyn Papprill said the

fence was shattered, trees were

uprooted, garden beds destroyed

and pieces of the vehicle strewn

everywhere.

Papprill was out of the city

when she got the call about the

chaos. After she arrived home

on Friday she reached out to

the community, and a working

bee was promptly organised for

Saturday.

Nine residents turned up

including city councillor Sara

Templeton, who brought a freshly-baked

banana loaf along.

“While it was gutting to have

the fence so badly damaged,

the community response was

wonderful and it was great to get

stuck in to tidy up as a group,”

said Templeton.

They spent two-and-a-half

hours clearing up the damage.

A large trailer load of green

waste went into landfill, along

with the broken car pieces. Uprooted

trees were broken down

for firewood or saved to rot into

insect homes at the back of the

garden.

A raised tyre bed had been

shunted sideways by the crash.

It was placed back into position,

refilled with dirt and replanted

with seedlings donated by

community members and by the

Linwood Community Garden.

“The area certainly looked

much tidier but to repair the

gap in the fence will take a while

longer,” said Papprill.

Hot tea, paired with Templeton’s

banana loaf and a rhubarb

crumble cake specially baked by

the Mt Pleasant cafe, ended the

working bee.

“What would we do without

people willing to volunteer their

time – a team effort gets a job

done quicker and it’s much more

fun,” said Papprill.

Recognition a

Māori, disability and

group effort

• From page 1

Francis said that it was a nice

thanks for all they had done, but

it also held meaning for the next

generation, encouraging them to

continue the work to protect the

penguins.

Shireen said there are people

out there just as deserving of the

honours.

She said they were originally

inspired by their neighbour Mark

Armstrong and the predator

trapping he was doing on his

property.

They took up the protection

call, and after years of trapping,

making nest boxes, monitoring

and rehabilitation, the Helps have

stabilised the penguin colony at

Pōhatu Flea Bay.

Pōhatu Flea Bay now has 1260

breeding pairs, the single largest

little penguin population on the

mainland.

The Helps believe this success

is because of a collaborative effort

with the other farmers and the

Banks Peninsula Conservation

Trust.

Shireen said one of the highlights

of all their work was when

a rehab penguin they had nursed

back to health went away to sea

and then came back to successfully

go on and breed.

“We were told rehab birds

hardly ever survive,” said Shireen.

“It was great to have confirmation

what you’re doing makes a

difference.”

The couple run Pōhatu Penguins

on their property, a tourism

business offering penguin and

nature tours, kayaking and

accommodation. This provides

them with the revenue to continue

their conservation and

education work.

University students often

frequent the bay, focusing their

projects on penguin conservation.

Said Francis: “We appear to

have run a farm in a sensitive

ecological area with streams,

native bush, and wildlife all doing

quite well.”

His new concern is making

sure research is conducted on

how sea surface temperature

change impacts the penguins and

their wider ecosystem.

Francis said they will

keep continuing with their

conservation work for as long as

they can.

refugee work noted

Alongside this major project,

Couch-Lewis has worked with

the Department of Conservation

to recover the orange-fronted

parakeet, the kākāriki, as well

as the hoiho, the yellow-eyed

penguin.

She has been a Ngāi Tahu

representative on the Te

Waihora Co-Governance Group

since 2007. She has championed

employment opportunities for

hapū in conservation and for

a joint management approach

between DOC and Ngāti Wheke

for Ripapa and Otamahua/Quail

Island.

In 2020, Couch-Lewis was

appointed as one of the newly

created “Tumu Taiao” roles

aimed at supporting better

city council decision-making

outcomes for mana whenua and

for ECan.

Former MP Ruth Dyson was

awarded the Queen’s Service

Order.

Dyson held several ministerial

roles with previous Labour

governments and was MP for

Lyttelton, Banks Peninsula and

the Port Hills, and has also

worked in the disability sector

for more than 30 years.

She was the first Minister for

Disability Issues in 1999. She

advocated for reform of the

disability support system, led

work to promote inclusivity for

disabled people in employment

and education, and provided

leadership through various

changes to ACC legislation.

Dyson also took part in

driving the legislation that

recognised sign language as an

official

language.

Suzanne

Blakely,

from

Redcliffs,

was

awarded

the

Queen’s

Service

Ruth Dyson

Medal for

her dedication

to helping refugees create a

new home in New Zealand.

She has spent 30 years

supporting refugee women as

an English as a second language

teacher. Blakely started this

ESOL role in 1990, teaching

English to Cambodian women

and children when she worked

at Mairehau Primary School.

In 1992, the programme

extended to teaching families

from Somalia.

She created a specialised ESOL

programme for refugee women

and has continued to teach

marginalised refugee parents,

especially women.

Her methods of teaching

have been incorporated into

mainstream ESOL teaching

programs for refugees

nationwide.

Blakely’s teaching has been

a combination of paid and

voluntary work, and she has

always supplemented class

resources from her own pocket

She has spent thousands

of hours not only making

resources suitable for learners

who are illiterate in their own

language, but also enabling

them to travel to attend class

and source childcare.

Her work is about more

than teaching English. Blakely

supports women in attending

health and school appointments,

and with supermarket

shopping.

She has taught many how to

drive, has helped refugees in

their search for employment,

and was a pillar of support in

the aftermath of the February

22, 2011 earthquake, and the

March 2019 terror attack.

Students seeking

shorter travel time

• By Samantha Mythen

PARENTS OF Cashmere High

School students from Cass

Bay are hoping to find a more

convenient way for their children

to get to and from school.

Currently children must catch

the route 28 bus

at 7am and travel

for over an hour,

including another bus

change, to be able to

get to school on time.

After school, it is

another hour’s journey

home.

There are about a

dozen students living

in Cass Bay who attend

Cashmere, with

this set to double next

year.

The Cass Bay

Residents’ Association has

sent a letter to Environment

Canterbury, requesting an open

dialogue around adjusting the

timetable to leave at 7.30am.

Parent Frank Costello said:

“Either the Ministry of Education

and or ECan need to work

out and provide a service that

works.”

“If ECan could sort more

Frank Costello ​

appropriately timed buses to

enable them to connect with

the Orbiter, they (my children)

would be sorted.”

Although students would still

have to take two buses to get

to school, the association said

the students would

have more time at

home and would get

to school at a more

appropriate time for

starting the day.

Originally, a school

bus was funded by

the Ministry of Education,

however this

was cancelled when

it was discovered that

the students were not

entitled to the bus

because they lived

outside of the transport

eligibility zone.

A spokesperson from ECan

said route 28 has been identified

as needing service improvements

and community engagement will

be included in this.

“Consideration could be given

to adding other options,” the

spokesperson said.

The service review is expected

to commence in the second half

of this year.

Healthy homes start here

Our homes play an important role in our lives

It’s estimated that 70% of a person’s time is spent inside their home,

so it should be a place we feel safe, healthy and comfortable in.

On average, a New Zealand household spends around $2,500 per year on energy and heating.

A healthy home is one that is warm and dry, connected with nature, and uses energy and

water efficiently - saving you money.

Whether you’re a homeowner, renter or landlord looking to comply with the Healthy Homes

Why stopping moisture is important for a healthy home

Having a warm, dry and well-ventilated home is essential, not just

for comfort, but also to help you avoid serious health issues. The

average NZ family home produces up to 8 litres of moisture each day.

Condensation and mould are visual identifiers that there is a problem.

How you can stop moisture to make your home healthier

There are several ways to tackle dampness and prevent moisture in the home.

• Moisture barrier - A waterproof sheet installed over the ground

underneath your house. This prevents the damp from rising inside

your home, reducing condensation and mould.

• Dehumidifiers - Remove moisture from the air inside your home to

prevent mildew.

Heat can escape your home through the walls, floors and

ceilings. Insulation prevents this, acting as a barrier between

inside and outside temperatures. It’s an ideal, low-cost way to

maintain a comfortable temperature all year round, and it’ll

Good quality insulation helps keep the heat in during winter

and out during summer. The priority for insulating your home

should be ceiling and underfloor, followed by walls. Using

insulation wrap on your hot water cylinder and pipes can also

reduce heat loss and save you around $80 a year. Insulated

houses are easier and cheaper to heat, saving resources and

making your home more comfortable and healthier to live in.

From earthquake ruins to popular bar

The Brewery at The

Tannery is celebrating

10 years this month.

Founder Alasdair

Cassels recalls how it

all came about

THE YEAR was 2011 and the

city had just been shaken to

its core. People were panicked,

businesses were scrambling and

lights were out in restaurants,

bars and clubs right across town.

But in times of chaos inspiration

can strike, and that’s exactly

what happened for Alasdair

Cassels.

“Two days after the earthquake

the family was up in Wellington

for a wedding, still covered in

dust and licking our wounds.

Three of us lost our houses and

my daughter Pippi was almost

killed by a falling chimney. All

the same we wanted to get back

on our feet. The question was,

how?”

With plans already underway

to create a brew bar at the then

undeveloped Tannery, it seemed

like the right place to start. But

only one building in the precinct

was relatively undamaged by the

earthquake – a 1970s building

next to Garlands Rd.

“It was just a rundown old

INSTITUTION: Joe Shanks (left), Alasdair Cassels and Zak Cassels at The Brewery at The Tannery,

building we had planned to

knock down,” said Cassels.

“I proposed we go back to

Christchurch and turn it into

a bar. I was definitely the most

enthusiastic ringleader!”

It didn’t take long to get

everyone behind the idea. On the

family’s return to Christchurch

they all got stuck in, with the

help of a few friends.

“It was quite a strange time

because nobody was really doing

anything. That worked perfectly

for us. Sometimes we had 50

people down here helping out.

Even Gerry Brownlee and Jim

Anderton got on the same page

to short-circuit a whole lot of

building consents for us.”

The Brewery as we know it

today opened in the middle of

winter, on June 21, 2011. The

turnaround was fast - just 100

days from the earthquake until

the family was pouring pints

from behind the bar.

Said Cassels: “We were the

only bar between Beckenham

and Taylors Mistake, there were

no bars in Brighton or Lyttelton

and you couldn’t get into town.

The east side of town was in

pieces.

“Because there were no bars,

there was no music. So we

decided to become a venue too.

It’s actually a bit inconvenient

having live music in a restaurant,

but we ended up having gigs just

about every night of the week.

“We wanted to create something

for everyone. We’d have

tradies in for breakfast, followed

by mum’s groups for coffee.

There were people having EQC

meetings, people watching bands

playing. It was quite an eclectic

gathering place.”

Over time, The Brewery has

expanded its food menu and

become less of a watering hole.

But the fundamentals remain the

same, and that’s just the way the

family wants it.

“We’re known as a place where

you can enjoy good beer, good

food, friendly staff and it’s not

too expensive. That’s our trademark.

It’s a family business and

I think families feel comfortable

here.

“At the end of the day, I

don’t think of The Brewery as

my achievement. It was the

earthquake that did it and the

people that came together to

help. The earthquake was an

awful, horrible thing, but some

good did come from it. That’s

worth raising a glass to,”

said Cassels.

Learning

to care for

waterways

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

• By Samantha Mythen

MT PLEASANT School pupils

went to Drayton Reserve recently

to better understand waterways

and how to care for them.

The classes are studying the

water cycle, with a special focus

on waterways, understanding how

they function, how humans impact

them, and how we can better

care for them.

Drayton Reserve Volunteers coordinator

Dave Bryce, who spoke

to the group of 45 pupils, said:

“It was inspiring to experience

their level of interest, engagement,

and enthusiasm for improving

the health of the stream and the

reserve.”

As a result of the reserve visit,

the classes are hoping to make a

brochure to deliver to households

in the reserve water catchment,

explaining how they too can make

changes to improve water quality

and protect biodiversity in the area.

Drayton Reserve is currently

being replanted in natives by volunteers.

A fire in the reserve during

January’s hot summer wiped out

much of the native vegetation.

Visit https://www.draytonreservevolunteers.org.nz/

information on planting days.

SUMNER ARTIST Allie

Rees has hosted her first solo

exhibition since returning from

art studies in Sydney three

months ago.

Her self-described “playful,

honest, expressive and bold” art

is adorning the walls of The Rock

throughout June.

Rees is pursuing her passion

for art in Sumner after she had

sculpture, at the National Art

School due to Covid-19.

Said Rees: “I have been in love

with colour ever since I put paint

down during my first year of

school.”

She said being able to study

art opened her mind as a

creative artist, helping her to

believe in herself and push her

limits.

The inspiration for her art work,

often painted on large canvases, is

260 x 180

to leave her studies, majoring in

her personal journey, how her life

is continuously evolving, and also

her religious beliefs.

“I have definitely grown to

have a liking to working bigger.

Hide your walls from me, that’s

for sure,” Rees said.

Being able to share her work at

The Rock makes Rees happy.

“I love it and it brings me alive

into a oneness with how life is to

me and the freedom I have in it

through my faith in Jesus.

BOLD: Allie Rees

draws from life

experiences and

religious beliefs in her

solo exhibition at The

Rock in Sumner.

Creative homecoming for artist

“It is a really warm beautiful

feeling, and I am so thankful for

the opportunity to be able to also

see it in the space every Sunday

service at church.”

Outside of the exhibition, Rees

is finding spontaneous freedom

and creativity painting on

wall spaces, and is working on

commissions for several cafes in

Auckland.

Line-up revealed for Selwyn Sounds

AUSTRALASIAN heavyweights

Jimmy Barnes and Jon Stevens

will headline a star-studded act

at next year’s Selwyn Sounds.

The line-up was announced

yesterday for the annual iconic

event at Lincoln Domain on

Saturday, March 5.

Event promoter David Parlane

said the travel bubble with

Australia was great news for

Selwyn Sounds.

“Jon is particularly pleased

as he was booked for our 2021

event, but could not make it due

to all the travel restrictions,” he

said.

Choirboys will also be coming

from across the Tasman.

Said Parlane: “They are still

doing what they have always

done best, play great Australian

pub rock. From where they first

started in 1978 to where they are

now, so much has happened.

“They’ve had hit records, full

houses, and travelled all over the

world . . . living the rock ‘n’ roll

dream.”

•The other acts lining up

at Selwyn Sounds are:

•Rietta Austin: From

Rotorua, Austin has spent the

last 20-plus years performing

in the United Kingdom and

Europe. Known as the Aotearoa

Angel, she may not be known by

many in New Zealand, but when

you are asked to be the opening

performer at the London O2

Arena, you are up there with

the best. She has featured on an

international compilation album,

alongside legendary artists

Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye,

Gladys Knight, Maxwell, Dionne

Warwick and Earth Wind

And Fire. Other recordings

include Bonnie Tyler, INXS and

Sam Smith. In the UK, Austin

appeared as a support artist

for Bryan Adams and Jocelyn

Brown and on tour in Russia for

Johnny Gill and Joe Cocker.

She has recently signed a UK

record deal with Strictly Come

Dancing and Dancing With The

STARS: Jimmy Barnes (left) and Jon Stevens will play at

Selwyn Sounds on March 5.

Stars Australia and NZ judge

Craig Revel Horwood for a duets

album to be released this year.

•Stella: They are Sony Music

NZ’s highest selling Kiwi band,

collecting eight New Zealand

Music Awards along the way. All

three albums charted within the

top 10 of the NZ album chart,

securing their status as a classic

mainstay in the New Zealand

music scene. They have performed

at Selwyn Sounds before.

•Greg Johnson: “I’m

excited to be home in New

Zealand again, and to make my

first appearance at the muchheralded

Selwyn Sounds festival.

The people of Canterbury have

been very kind to me over the

years and I can’t wait to play

for them at this great event,”

Johnson said.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Free computing

course delivers

unexpected benefits

A simple desire to become more digital

savvy has opened a world of possibilities for

business owner Thomas King.

A co-director of a logistics business for 20

years, Thomas has seen huge changes in the

way business is conducted.

“The world is rapidly changing and to keep

pace with it, having some confidence and

competence in computing is crucial,” he says.

“I realised that I’d have to embrace this new

tech-driven world sooner or later, and now

here I am today, loving what I once feared.”

Thomas took his first steps in computing at

Ara Connect which offers free, non-assessed

computing courses for anyone wanting to gain

skills and confidence using digital technology.

Thomas says the tutors at Ara Connect

welcomed him warmly, made learning

an enjoyable experience and were

very supportive. “I felt so inspired

during my journey. The tutors want

you to succeed and they encourage

you to push your boundaries without

ever throwing you in the deep end.”

Discovering something new and

amazing every time he got on a

computer was one of the things

Thomas enjoyed most about his time

at Ara. “There are some amazing

apps and software out there.

I’ve especially fallen in love with

collaboration tools which can help

Explore this option

today at ara.ac.nz

me complete a host of project management

tasks.”

Thomas is now considering further study

and possibly a complete career change. “I’m

keeping my options open but a future in IT

is becoming more likely for me with every

passing day.”

His advice for anyone else considering the

computing courses at Ara Connect is to just

go for it. “Knowing how to use computers can

make life so much easier. I certainly wish I’d

taken courses like these two decades ago. My

advice is to pluck up the courage and just go

for it.”

School. To find out more, visit ara.ac.nz or

REGENERATION: Enthusiastic volunteers take part in an autumn planting

day in Avoca Valley.

PHOTO: MARIE GRAY

‘Eco-corridor’ underway

for Avoca Valley area

• By Samantha Mythen

THE SUMMIT Road Society wants to

plant 87,000 native trees and plants across

33 hectares of Avoca Valley, and it needs

the public’s help.

The project will progress as funding

allows. It has currently raised $1020 out of

its goal of $6000.

The project aims to restore

the valley to its original state

before humans inhabited the

area; a dry lowland podocarp

forest. This type of forest is

now classed as a nationally rare

ecosystem.

Summit Road Society

secretary Marie Gray said the

project has huge community

benefits.

“It will bring birds back to

the valley and will connect

Christchurch city and the harbour

through an ecological corridor,” she said.

Gray said in time this will mean native

birds will frequent residential areas.

A newly added feature will be walking

tracks throughout the reserve for the community

to explore and enjoy the valley.

The planting project has been a long

time coming. Twenty-five years ago, the

Marie Gray

FOUR PROJECTS ON the Banks

Peninsula and Port Hills have benefited

from the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund.

The city council set up the Christchurch

Biodiversity Fund in 2017 to support and

encourage initiatives that protect and

enhance indigenous biodiversity on private

land.

Chair of the council’s three waters infrastructure

and environment committee,

Councillor Pauline Cotter said: “The fund

is a practical way we can support landowners

who are investing their own time and

money to look after biodiversity on their

properties.”

The owners of Oashore Station, in the

southern bays of Banks Peninsula, are

receiving a grant to help pay for fencing to

keep stock out of two areas of native forest.

It will result in a 15-hectare extension of

an existing QE11 covenant, which is part

of a multi-stage project to restore native

areas on the station.

local community, including residents,

landowners, iwi, the city council, and

environmental experts, began working

together on a plan to restore the Avoca

Valley stream, which runs dry for most of

the year.

Since then, a small wetland area in

Duncan Park has been developed, with

planting alongside the stream.

A main part of the plan included

planting trees in the upper

valley catchment.

Older residents remember

playing in the stream when they

were younger. The valley has

great cultural significance too;

it was used as a route for Ngāti

Wheke between Rāpaki and

Ihutai, the estuary, and was an

important source of mahinga kai

(food gathering).

The winter planting days have already

begun with two more planned for this

Sunday and on June 26. If you would like

to head along to the planting days, visit the

Summit Road Society for more

information.

To donate to this project, you can visit:

https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/avoca-valleyplanting-project

Biodiversity enhanced by fund

Wairewa Four in Little River has also

been granted funds to prevent stock from

entering 21 hectares of regenerating hardwood

and podocarp forest.

Several species are present in the forest

that are classified as nationally threatened

and rare, including species endemic to

Banks Peninsula.

Luke Thelning Reserve in Okains Bay has

received a grant for weed control work in

the ecologically significant reserve, which

includes centuries-old lowland totara.

A grant for weed control has also been

given to the Summit Road Society for its

work in the Linda Woods Reserve in the

Port Hills. This will mean several plant

species that threaten the ecological integrity

of the volcanic bluff ecosystems will be

eliminated.

So far the fund has allocated $775,871

to 37 projects, which has resulted in more

than 384 hectares of ecologically significant

vegetation and fauna being protected.

Mental Fitness

by Paul Wood

The bestselling author of How to Escape from Prison,

prisoner-turned-psychologist Paul Wood on developing

the mental strength and fitness to take on all of life’s

challenges

Getting and staying mentally fit, just like getting and

maintaining a high level of physical fitness, involves hard

work, effort, and consistency. Our level of mental fitness

determines how effectively we can flourish through adversity,

realise our potential, and be happier with our lives - regardless of

what the universe has in store.

We all know about mental stress (or we think we do). We’ve definitely all experienced

it, and none of us like it. Yet this is not a threat to be avoided. Mental stress is perfectly

analogous to physical stress: it is the mind’s way of telling us that what we are

attempting to perform is challenging our resource. This is a catalyst for growth, and a

sign we are pursuing our potential. When we experience stress, we have a choice: we

can heed that signal and give up - after all, we’re meant to stay in our psychic comfort

zone all the time, right? Or we can recognise the discomfort we are feeling is simply

nature’s way of enabling us to rise to the occasion.

Still Life

by Sarah Winman

From the bestselling author of When God was a Rabbit and Tin Man, Still Life is a bighearted

story of people brought together by love, war, art, flood and the ghost of E.M. Forster.

We just need to know what the heart’s capable of, Evelyn.

And do you know what it’s capable of?

I do. Grace and fury.

1944, in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as the Allied troops advance and bombs

fall around them, two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening together.

Ulysses Temper is a young British soldier, Evelyn Skinner is a sexagenarian art historian

and possible spy. She has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the wreckage and relive

memories of the time she encountered EM Forster and had her heart stolen by an Italian

maid in a particular Florentine room with a view.

These two unlikely people find kindred spirits in each other and Evelyn’s talk of truth and

beauty plants a seed in Ulysses’ mind that will shape the trajectory of his life – and of those

who love him – for the next four decades.

Moving from the Tuscan Hills and piazzas of Florence, to the smog of London’s East End,

Still Life is a sweeping, joyful, richly-peopled novel about beauty, love, family and fate.

16 Bay Harbour News Wednesday June 9 2021

Canterbury, we need to talk

about our changing climate

Climate change is already affecting our

local ecosystems and communities. It is

not an easy or small topic. That’s why our

local and regional councils have pooled

resources, knowledge and expertise to help

people understand, prepare for and adapt

to the climate change impacts Canterbury

is likely to experience.

The new It’s time, Canterbury website

is home to reputable information and

resources on the topic. People can explore

these pages to learn about what is expected,

as well as ideas on how we can each help

lessen and adapt to the impacts of climate

change.

What is climate change?

Over many years, scientists and tohunga

have learnt a lot about Earth’s climate

system. Through observation, we know

Earth’s temperature is currently warming

much faster than experienced before. As

Earth’s temperature continues to rise it

causes changes in rainfall, weather patterns,

and the frequency of extreme events, as

well as ice melt and sea level rise. This

results in a range of effects we experience in

our natural environment and the areas we

live in.

Climate change in Canterbury

Under a ‘business as usual’ scenario,

where greenhouse gas emissions continue

to increase, average temperatures in

Canterbury are projected to increase by

up to 3.5°C by the end of the century. The

likelihood of drought conditions is also

projected to increase, and fire risk will

increase as soils and plants become drier.

Alongside drought, over the next two

decades, we can expect wetter winters in

many eastern, western and southern parts

of Canterbury, with up to 40% more rain.

What’s being done?

The more learnt about the challenges

associated with climate change in

Canterbury, the more they’re shaping

decision-making. Councils are thinking

differently about biodiversity, water

availability, flood protection, coastal

erosion, energy, land, urban design,

infrastructure and industry so you, your

whānau, your community or your business

can be supported to better understand

and proactively respond - Mō tātou, ā, mō

kā uri, ā muri ake nei – for us, and our

children after us.

At a national level, the Climate Change

Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment

Act 2019 has a target for New Zealand to

reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to

zero by 2050, except biogenic methane,

which has its own separate reduction target.

Can I really make a difference?

Absolutely! The easiest thing you can

do is be informed and become part of the

conversation. Make sure you have verifiable

facts to base your discussions and actions

on and talk with others about what you

know. On the It’s time, Canterbury website,

you can show and share your support

simply by putting your name to the cause,

as well as learn about projected changes in

your district.

For those who want to act, there are ideas

showing how simple changes can support

New Zealand’s commitment to reducing

greenhouse gas emissions. Examples

include reducing electricity use, walking,

biking, or catching the bus instead driving,

and shopping locally.

Everyone has a role to play and it starts

at itstimecanterbury.co.nz.

We’re here to help you understand, manage and prepare for more changes Canterbury is likely to face in the future.

Because as well as taking action to reduce the impacts of climate change, we need to ready ourselves to adapt to them.

Full steam ahead for Kia’s Stonic

MOST NEW car distributors

these days will tell you supply

is awkward due to the ongoing

effects of Covid-19 and shipping

delays.

Production of semi-conductors

and other electronic componentry

is well below demand and

that has meant headaches for

the automobile industry. Due

to shortages of these products,

manufacturers simply can’t build

enough cars, and sales are also

on the rise which compounds the

situation.

One company that is weathering

the storm relatively well is

Kia, and Kia in New Zealand is

maintaining good market position.

A lot of that has to do with

the introduction of the Stonic, a

small sport utility vehicle that has

often topped sales in that part of

the market. I guess that is helped

a little by the withdrawal of the

Sportage due to supply issues, a

wait for the Sportage will mean

that when the new generation

model lands here later in the year,

forward orders will buy you into

that variant.

That aside, the Stonic joins a

multitude of small SUVs that

have landed recently including

Ford’s Puma, Toyota’s Yaris Cross

and a revamped Suzuki Ignis, to

name just some.

The Stonic lands here in five

variants with two engine options.

The range starts at $22,990 for the

base model LX with a 1.4-litre,

four-cylinder engine, an extra $5k

will buy you into a mid-range EX

while the Limited specification

model, as tested, lands at $29,990.

In contrast, there’s the option of

a three-cylinder turbocharged

1-litre GT Line unit that lists

at $31,990, and a GT Line+ at

$33,990.

If these driveline options look

familiar, yes, they are pretty much

as what is specified for the Rio

range. The Stonic is based on the

Rio platform, yet it has higher

ground clearance and it is taller.

That’s why it slots into the SUV

category, it also has a chubby,

muscular, wagon-type body style.

Bear in mind though, the Stonic

is just front-wheel-drive, it’s not

a vehicle designed for cross-country

travel but it does serve its

design concept well, it is an urban

commuter and exudes capable

highway travel. It will also satisfy

in an everyday role, access is easy,

and for someone with old bones

like mine, that is important, along

with a comfortable ride.

Coming from the modern

Korean factories, the Stonic

is chock-full of specification

although there is one minor

omission in the Limited model

that would have me looking at the

mid-spec LX for purchase. The

Limited has leather seat coverings

but there are no seat heaters.

While I appreciate the cost has

EASY ACCESS: The Stonic’s elevated ride height makes it

an attractive purchase for those not so agile.

KIA STONIC LIMITED: Small sport utility vehicle based on Rio platform.

been kept down for desirability,

those seats aren’t inviting when

a cold Canterbury frost hits. The

LX has cloth trim.

Elsewhere, though, there is all

the kit to satisfy, satellite navigation,

radar cruise control and a

raft of safety kit that comes under

the guise of advanced driver

assistance systems. There are no

surprises there, but to say the

Stonic gets a heap of kit to keep

you out of trouble and to protect

you if the worst case scenario

evolves.

Under the bonnet, the 1.4-litre

engine and smooth-shifting sixspeed

automatic transmission are

all traditional, and that is a good

thing, I like a little bit of simplicity

in vehicles and the driveline

in the Stonic is set-up well for its

role.

Kia claims power outputs of

74kW (6000rpm) and 133Nm

(4000rpm), even though they are

generated tall in the rev band the

engine doesn’t work hard. The

Stonic weighs in at just under

1.2-tonne, so there isn’t a lot of

demand on the engine. Power is

willing across the rev band and

it is generated smoothly without

much fuss. For the record, the

Stonic in this form will accelerate

to 100km/h in 11sec and make

120km/h from 80km/h in 7sec.

On the subject of figures,

the four-cylinder Stonic also

fares well in the fuel usage area.

• Price – Kia Stonic Limited,

$29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4140mm; width, 1760mm;

height, 1520mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1368cc, 74kW,

133Nm, six-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 6.7l/100km

Kia also claims a 6.7-litre per

100km/h combined cycle average.

On my long highway run through

Mid-Canterbury the instantaneous

readout was constantly listing

at around 4.4l/100km (engine

speed 2400rpm at 100km/h),

and when I took the evaluation

car back to the dealership a

7.2l/100km average was showing

on the readout.

On the open road the Stonic

travels quietly with little wind

noise and thorough sound-proofing

underneath.There is a solid

feel of communication through

the steering, the high grade

205/55 x 17in Continental tyres

send all the right messages to the

driver and provide direct steering

accuracy.

Steering input is quick and

reactive, while the entire body

structure feels balanced and controlled

through the suspension.

Incidentally, the latter is a

front-strut/rear-torsion beam

design. Even though the rear

wheels are tied together through

the beam there is just the right

amount of movement on each

side to deal with uneven surfaces.

The spring and damper rates

are biased towards firm, which

helps contain gravitational

movement, but they are not so

hard that occupant comfort is

jeopardised, especially in the rear

where the seats are supportive

and cocooning.

Even though the Stonic is

compact, there is satisfactory leg

and head room all through the

model. There are three seat belts

in the rear and for three adults

there wouldn’t be too much of a

squeeze.

As much as I enjoyed the

evaluation, I’d like to have a drive

in the three-potter, I recall that

engine from the Rio and I can

report it is absolutely delightful.

I’m always happy to report

when a friend buys a new car.

When the Stonic was destined for

our market an acquaintance put

her name down early for one. She

has since received that car and is

delighted with the purchase.

With that type of feedback it’s

no surprise why Stonic sales are

elevated, it’s my hope that supply

is maintained so that others like

my friend can enjoy an affordable

and desirable SUV experience.

for the kids

The owners instructions are - must be sold.

Seaside Privacy + Style

Occupying an extremely private site off the ever-desirable Redcliffs

waterfront, this architecturally designed townhouse by Wilkie + Bruce

epitomises low-maintenance living to offer an exceptional lifestyle in a

privileged location.

Superbly presented and considerately upgraded over the years this home

hosts a contemporary kitchen and stunning master bathroom, along with

refreshed carpet and paintwork, which creates an attractive setting for

daily routines.

The sun-lit layout covers 170m² approx across two levels and has been

logically arranged for modern family living. Offering a total of three

bedrooms and two bathrooms, there’s one of each conveniently placed

on the ground floor while the remainder, along with a study, are located

upstairs. The master suite is a relaxing upper-level retreat and enjoys hill

views as well as glimpses of the estuary.

The primary living zone is well-proportioned and free-flowing, opening

outdoors to two hardwood decks and the landscaped grounds which bask

in northwest sunshine. Better yet, you cannot be built out, with the local

tennis club residing next door.

A picture of practicality, the floor plan also includes excellent insulation,

a heat pump, a separate toilet, dedicated laundry and an internal access

double garage.
