Land sale

off the

cards

for now

• By Samantha Mythen

THE CITY council has listened

to the Diamond Harbour

community’s opposition to the

sale of land in their area – and has

removed it from

the Long Term

Plan.

This means

the community

will be consulted

before the land,

running between

village housing

and Bay View

Rd, described as

27 Hunters Rd Tori Peden

and 42 Where

Ave, is approved for sale.

Said Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Tori

Peden: “It is great this is now going

to the community and we look

forward to being a part of that

consultation process as well.”

The board supported residents’

requests that separate consultation

with the community be

undertaken before the potential

sale of the land. Originally, the

land was set for fast track disposal

without further consultation.

GOOD LUCK to those

brave souls known as the

will be going for a dip or

(see page 8).

And we’re not talking a

dip at the New Brighton hot

them target the real deal –

the sea.

The group has about 40

A 12-MONTH trial for a nonpowered

vessel area in Rāpaki is

likely to be imposed to protect

swimmers and shellfish beds.

On Monday, with the support

of Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke

Rāpaki and the Harbourmaster’s

Office, Isaac Fahey, on behalf of

the Rāpaki community, brought

this proposal to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board.

Fahey said they would like to

see the same ban imposed as seen

in nearby Cass and Corsair bays.

He said it was a safety issue

with the area seeing an increase

in motorised vessels such as jet

skis, which often disobeyed the

five-knot speed limit within

200m from the shore.

“We do not want a death in

our waters,” Fahey told the community

board.

He also said that motorised

vessels were disturbing shellfish

beds, an important source of

food gathering.

They are recommending

the area to the left side of the

Rāpaki boat ramp to Pony Point

become a non-powered vessel

area.

“This is the best decision for

Rāpaki,” said Fahey.

All members of the community

board supported

Fahey’s proposal and the

board said it would write

a letter of support to Environment

Canterbury.

Once ECan receives

this letter of support, it

will decide whether to

put the ban in place.

Navigation safety

officer of the Harbourmaster’s

Office Gary Manch told the

meeting the ban needed the

support of the rūnanga and the

wider community.

Fahey’s deputation at the community

board meeting was to

garner the community’s support.

“As the community board is

representative of the

wider community, we

look to them for either

support or not for

the area in question,”

Manch said.

If the community

board supported the

idea, Manch said ECan

could move forward on

recognising the area.

In Brief

FIRE CONCERNS REMAIN

Neighbours of Urumau Reserve

near Lyttelton are still worried

about the reserve’s fire risk and

have not seen any response to

the concerns they raised with the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board at the start of March.

The board confirmed it is in

ongoing discussions with the city

council. The board has requested

a progress update from the city

council about its original request

to investigate the neighbours’

concerns.

•Urumau track, page 13

TRAPPED IN VEHICLE

A vehicle crashed at Gardener’s

corner, an s-bend on the road

from Governors Bay to Rāpaki, at

3pm on Saturday. The car rolled

and a person was trapped in the

vehicle. They were assisted by the

Governors Bay Volunteer Fire

Brigade. The person had minor

injuries.

FAIR FUTURE UNCERTAIN

Orton Bradley Park is waiting to

see whether it will be able to host

its annual spring fair. In 2020

funding of $10,000 was provided

for the fair but was not available

this year. An application for

another source of funding was

made to the city council’s events

and festivals sponsorship fund

and a decision is expected back on

July 8.

SPEED LIMITS on Lyttelton’s

streets are likely to be lowered

from 50km/h to 40km/h in a bid

to make the area safer.

This is part of a wider Banks

Peninsula speed limit review

project, with many more roads

in Banks Peninsula also likely to

see changes.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board approved the

city council’s recommendations

to make these changes to road

speed limits on Monday.

As part of its discussions, the

board has requested Norwich

Quay, which is State Highway

74, also be reduced to 40km/h

for consistency in the port. The

decision on its speed limit lies

with Waka Kotahi New Zealand

Transport Agency, separate to

Lyttelton’s other streets, due to

its state highway status.

During the meeting, Lyttelton

subdivision board member

Tyrone Fields said the speed

reduction of 10km/h would

only add a few more seconds to

driving time.

He also mentioned people usually

cannot drive at 50km/h due

to hazards.

Lyttelton Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard

said the decision would be a

poor use of resources.

“People don’t drive to the

speed limit in the narrow streets

anyway,” he said.

“But the badly behaved drivers

will break the rules anyway. This

is just legislating what should be

people’s good behaviour.”

Lyttelton Harbour

Business Association

chairwoman Vicki

Tahau Paton agreed

and said it is difficult to

drive along some of Lyttelton’s

streets at even

40km/h.

Community board chairwoman

Tori Peden said the project has

been a several stage approach,

with the motive behind it to

increase road user safety in the

multi-hazard areas, as well as providing

a more consistent approach

A section of Waipapa

from 100km/h to 60km/h, with

both 60km/h and 40km/h speed

limits introduced.

Kukupa, near Pigeon Bay, will

have a speed limit reduction to

40km/h from 100km/h.

Birdlings Flat, Kaitorete Spit,

Little River and Okuti Valley

roads’ will also be set to 60km/h

and 40km/h depending on the

specific road.

The Western Valley Rd route,

Puaha Valley, and roads along

the Southern Bays will all be set

at 60km/h.

Akaroa and Akaroa’s

backcountry roads will be set

at either 40km/h or 60km/h

depending on the specific street

or road involved, including a

standard 40km/h through the

village itself.

The initiative has been

undertaken to support the Waka

Kotahi New Zealand Transport

Agency speed management

guide and its overall road safety

strategy for the next decade.

Consultation on the speed

limit of State Highway 75 and

Centres to

remain open at

reduced capacity

• By Samantha Mythen

THE AKAROA and Lyttelton

service centres will remain open

as decreed in the city council’s

10-year budget.

During consultations on the

city council’s draft Long Term

Plan, it was recommended that

$24,000 be allocated annually to

each of the centres.

This would allow face-to-face

customer service to continue at

half its current capacity.

Said Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman

Tori Peden: “It is great for the

communities to still have these

face-to-face services.

“We are happy with the compromise.”

She said the decision also

meant the community board,

Akaroa community and city

council could look at business

models to help create a service

hub in the village’s service centre

building.

The recommendation comes

after 113 submitters opposed the

service centres’ closure.

Said Christchurch Mayor

Lianne Dalziel: “We have listened

to our community. Some very

clear themes came through in

the submissions which have

influenced the recommendations

I am making.”

SAFER SPEED REVIEW

Christchurch to Akaroa

Have your say on safer speeds

Speed on impact determines if the people in a crash are

killed, injured or walk away unharmed.

Through Road to Zero – New Zealand’s road safety

strategy – we’re working towards a future where no-one

is killed or seriously injured on our roads.

Christchurch to Akaroa is Canterbury’s highest-risk route

– in terms of personal safety – and in New Zealand’s

top 10% where we can make the greatest difference in

reducing road deaths and serious injuries.

FOR THREE days in July, the

pride lands of Africa are coming to

Diamond Harbour.

Diamond Harbour School is performing

The Lion King, with four

shows running from Thursday to

Saturday.

Acting deputy principal and the

production’s director Sally Craw

said The Lion King was chosen for

its great songs and the massive

buy-in from the pupils.

It also provided all 130 pupils

with the chance to get involved

with the massive ensemble.

“We have really strong senior

singers and performers and we

wanted to provide the opportunity

for as many kids as possible to

show off their skills,” said Craw.

The junior school is acting

out the grassland scenes and the

middle school is acting as Simba’s

friends, singing alongside him, in

the classic, I Just Can’t Wait to Be

King.

The senior school is in charge of

the lead acting roles and the larger

ensemble.

Craw said the Diamond Harbour

community rallied together

to help produce the show.

“It has been so amazing, the

whole community has pitched in.

Local artists painted the backdrops,

a student’s architect father

built an amazing pride rock, many

parents have helped with sewing

costumes, a photographer mum

has taken photos,” she said.

Craw’s mother helped sew the

costumes of the leading roles, including

three male lions with their

mane’s stitched on one individual

strand at a time, 12 lionesses and

Pumba.

The school sent out a basic pattern

to other parents, “who were

brave enough to volunteer,” and

help sew other costumes, Craw

said.

Homewares store Spotlight has

also given the school discounts on

fabric.

It is the first production

Craw has been solely responsible

for.

“It has been so busy and a big

learning curve. The kids are amazing,

they are so talented and so

motivated and so hard-working,”

she said.

The production has been a part

of the school’s art curriculum.

DEDICATED: Liz Hancock is exhibiting her own art work now that she has retired from teaching.

Ex-teacher focuses on her own art

• By Samantha Mythen

RETIREMENT has allowed

former Sumner art teacher Liz

Hancock the chance to focus

on her own work – and her

first major exhibition in several

decades.

Hancock taught art at Hillmorton

High School for more

than 40 years and led the art

faculty for at least 15 years.

“Teaching art has been a stimulating

path, which has given

me the privilege of meeting and

working with a huge number of

students, colleagues, caregivers

and parents,” she said.

“I have gained so much pleasure

from seeing my students’

love of art grow into wonderful

achievements and it is lovely

when some of them still recognise

me in public.”

However, teaching painting,

design and printmaking to

emerging artists left her with

little time for her own practice.

After retiring at the end of

2018, Hancock has found inspiration

and the right head space

to commit to her own paintings.

“Teaching has been so full-on,

I have exhibited sporadically

over the years, but this is the

first chance I’ve had to be totally

committed,” said Hancock.

This has resulted in One Long

Breath, an exhibition opening

today at Down By The Liffey

Gallery in Lincoln.

“It is quite nerve-racking,”

said Hancock.

“I never really enjoyed doing

exhibitions as I paint for myself,

not for others, but I thought it

was finally time to put my money

where my mouth is.”

Her artwork features

conceptual portraiture and

abstract backgrounds, inspired

by the changing patterns

and lights across the Avon-

Heathcote Ihutai Estuary,

Canterbury Plains and the

Southern Alps – views she can

see from her home.

Hancock has lived on

Panorama Rd since 1985. Her

exhibition features several

artworks, painted on a long

landscape canvas, which

she said relate to constantly

looking out at the horizon. The

exhibition runs throughout

July. It also features work from

sculptor Michael Barrow.

Diamond Harbour resident

Richard Suggate had encouraged

his community to submit to the

draft Long Term Plan, asking for

the land to be removed.

“I am very pleased the city

council has withdrawn the LTP

sale proposal,” said Suggate.

“I note they haven’t said the

land won’t ever be sold and that

if a sale proposal does surface

again, they will

consult in a

meaningful way

with residents.”

The area

was originally

purchased by the

Banks Peninsula

council for future

zoning and it

Richard

Suggate

currently sits as

city council freehold land with

district plan zoning.

Residents were concerned about

the development of the land if it

was sold quickly under the LTP.

Suggate said the sale of the land

could result in 200-300 more

houses being built and questions

remained over how Morgan and

Sam’s gullies would be protected.

He said the sale would affect the

wider community and they need a

say in how the land is developed.

CHILLY: Scarborough Dippers will brave the elements once again this July. ​

Hardy dippers ready

for July challenge

SCARBOROUGH Dippers

is launching its annual Wet

July challenge tomorrow

and this year, the group’s

chilly endeavours will be

raising money for local

community projects.

This will be the fifth year

the group has undertaken

Wet July, where members

pledge to get into the sea

every day throughout the

month of July wearing

just togs and a smile,

irrespective of the weather

– provided conditions

allow this to be done safely.

Founding member

Kerry Newton, said the

Scarborough Dippers has

grown exponentially over

fifve years, having started

off with just four keen

dippers.

More than 40 people are

gathering for the group’s

dips and she is expecting

around 20 people to commit

to Wet July, although

typically many more join

in over the weekends.

“There has been a

growing interest in wild

swimming and the health

and well-being benefifts

of cold-water swimming,

which the regulars can

certainly attest to,” she

said.

“This is reflected in the

growing number of people

of all ages who are now

joining us on a daily or

weekly basis.”

Last July, the

Scarborough Dippers

raised more than $6000

which was split between

the Sumner and Taylors

Mistake Surf Lifesaving

clubs.

This year, the group has

chosen to support community

projects which include

the upgrade of Sumner

Kindergarten’s playground

and the surfboard library

based at The Goat Shed.

Others are yet to be confifrmed.

Said Newton: “It is

important for us to support

our local community. Most

of us are from the Sumner,

Taylors Mistake, Redcliffs

and Mt Pleasant so it makes

sense that we raise money

to support the community

that supports us.”

•More information

about Wet July can

be found on the

Scarborough Dipper’s

Facebook page.

Bid to retain reserve’s significance

A PROPOSED drat

landscape master plan

for Takapūneke Reserve,

near Akaroa, aims to

acknowledge the area’s

immense historical and

cultural signififcance.

The proposed plan has

been developed in partnership

with Ōnuku Rūnanga

and seeks to acknowledge

the importance of the site.

The landscape design

is founded on Kaupapa

Māori concepts.

Said city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge:

“The design is intended to

help tell the story of this

land and how it has shaped

our history.”

The plan will be rolled

out in stages as funding and

resources become available.

The reserve was the

scene of a massacre in

1830, ater which the site

became tapu. It also has a

signififcant association with

the European settlement of

Akaroa and the Treaty of

Waitangi and in 2002 was

registered as Wāhi Tapu

(a place of outstanding

historical or cultural

value).

Consultation on the

landscape plan is open and

closes on July 21.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

A message from

the Board

Tēnā Koutou

It has been a busy time for Marian

College as the planning for the new

school build moves excitingly close to

finally breaking ground. The Diocese

officially took over the land in May and

tender for the build has now closed.

One of the many benefits of utilising

the existing building on site is that poor

weather conditions aren’t expected to

impact the build going forward, and we

are confident the new school will open

in 2023 as planned.

While we have been at our current

site in Barbadoes Street for almost 10

years, the North Parade site has been

a significant part of the Marian College

history and holds many memories for

our Marian College whānau.

We were thrilled to learn that the site

has been sold to The Laura Fergusson

Brain Injury Trust. The Trust, which runs

a residential home and offers services

such as assessments, rehabilitation, and

physiotherapy in other parts of the city,

will centralise its South Island services in a

new facility on the site.

It seems very fitting that there will be

another caring community using this site

which will always remain an important

part of our college’s history.

Although the new build is a key focus,

there is much to celebrate within the

school already this year. We won the

coveted Bishop Lyons Shield which is a

major achievement and highlight in the

Catholic schools’ calendar. Our choir

represented us beautifully at The Big

Sing – the Secondary Schools Choral

Festival, and our hockey, football and

netball teams reflected our team spirit

at Mercy Cup, a sports competition

between Catholic schools, last month.

As well as its academic, sporting, and

cultural achievements, Marian College

is committed to ensuring all individuals

feel respected, safe, and valued, which

it continues to do with its love of faith,

learning, and service within the school

community.

As a Board we look forward to

supporting the continuing success of

our students and staff.

Marian College students support Courageous Youth

Marian College students and staff raised

$3000 recently for the Make-A-Wish

Foundation by putting their paper crane

folding skills to work.

Mazda NZ, recently held the Paper

Crane Project and pledged to donate

$1000 to the Make a Wish Foundation

for every 1000 cranes they received.

Marian College Pastoral Chaplain Olivia

Shimasaki said the challenge aligned

with the school’s focus of ‘Taking

Courage’ this year.

“The young people who receive wishes

from the Make-A-Wish Foundation

show great courage, therefore, we

were proud to support them and the

Paper Crane Project. Our students

took this opportunity with passion

and determination, showing the

difference we can make when we work

together,” Olivia said.

Six former and current Marian College

students received their Duke of Edinburgh

Awards at a ceremony last month.

Among those was former student Caitlin

Fleming who received her Gold Duke of

Edinburgh Hillary Award after three years

of hard work.

Caitlin was invited to speak at the awards

ceremony about her experience.

“I chose to get involved in the Duke of

Edinburgh Award scheme because I really

enjoy spending time with my friends. It

was a challenge to achieve the Gold Award

and I was pushed to the limit to complete

it,” she says.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award consists

of four sections- voluntary service, skills,

physical recreation, and adventurous

journey, with Gold Award participants also

having to do a residential project.

“The highlight has been making new

friends and trying out activities that

challenged me. I had role models to look

up to and, through them, have found

myself being able to help people in my

own groups. Thank you to everyone who

has supported and believed in me,”

Caitlin said.

Current Marian College student Georgia

Woods also received her Silver Award at

the ceremony.

“I decided to take part in the award largely

because of the tramping opportunities it

provided which were not something I’d

had previous experience with. I worked

really hard to push myself out of my

comfort zone,” Georgia said.

Mackenzie Johnston who completed the

Bronze Award agreed.

“Doing this award was a way for me to

test my determination and commitment.

This was a fun way for me to extend my

abilities and leave my comfort zone,”

Mackenzie said.

GREAT

WINTER

READS

INSTORE NOW!

NEW RELEASES

The Mirror Book

by Charlotte Grimshsaw

Growing up behind the family façade. Brave, explosive, and thoughtprovoking,

this is a powerful memoir from a critically acclaimed writer. ‘It’s

material, make a story out of it,’ was the mantra Charlotte Grimshaw grew up

with in her famous literary family. But when her life suddenly turned upsidedown,

she needed to re-examine the reality of that material. The more she

delved into her memories, the more the real characters in her life seemed to

object. So what was the truth of ‘a whole life lived in fiction’? This is a vivid

account of a New Zealand upbringing, where rebellion was encouraged,

where trouble and tragedy lay ahead. It looks beyond the public face to the

‘messy reality of family life - and much more’.

Tikanga

by Francis Tipene & Kaiora Tipene

Living a fulfilling life rich with tradition, connection and te ao Maori Following

on from their bestseller, Life as a Casketeer, Francis and Kaiora Tipene share

how they bring the traditional values of tikanga Maori into day-to-day living,

what they know about whanau, mahi and manaakitanga, and how they live

a life rich with the concepts of te ao Maori Known for their warm hearts, grace

and humour, the stars of the wildly popular series The Casketeers show how

the traditions of tikanga shapes their lives juggling five sons, three businesses

and a television show - all while sustaining a life filled with joy and connection.

Jacinda Ardern: Leading With Empathy

by Supriya Vani and Carl A Harte

Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy is a major biography of one of the

most important and inspirational leaders of the twenty-first century, based

on interviews with the New Zealand Prime Minister herself.

Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy carefully explores the influences

– personal, social, political and emotional – that have shaped Ardern.

Acclaimed peace activist and journalist Supriya Vani and writer Carl A Harte

build their narrative through Vani’s personal interviews with Ardern, as well

as the prime minister’s public statements and speeches and the words of

those who know her. We visit the places, meet the people and understand

the events that propelled the daughter of a small-town Mormon policeman

into a committed social democrat, a passionate Labour Party politician, and

a model modern leader.

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide To Life

rural Tales from the Heartland by Tim Fulton

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life does just that, telling stories of New

Zealand farmers, agribusiness entrepreneurs and even a couple

of scientists. Each one knows about sweat, quick thinking and the

importance of a sense of humour in the world of agriculture. From

a dive into farming history to a probe of modern agri issues, Kiwi

Farmers’ Guide to Life shows farmers at their finest and in some

cases - at their most vulnerable. At heart, these stories explore why

farmers do what they do, rather than how. So, put on your gumboots

and let’s take that road less travelled.

Knock Knock: Confessions of a Kiwi Interviewer

by Trish Palmer

Extraordinary stories from a lifetime spent conducting interviews. This is the

world of the dreaded door-knock from the other side of the door. Trish Palmer

has been working as an interviewer and area manager for market research

companies for over 20 years, invited into the homes and private lives of an

astonishing array of folk from every lifestyle imaginable. Her experiences on

the job entail everything from bare bottoms to angry cats, the desperately

struggling to the well-off, and everyone in between. There is comedy and

sadness, surprises and the downright odd, from witches to boat-builders,

dope growers and more. Poignant, hilarious, and always thought-provoking,

this is a highly entertaining read.

THERE WILL be further

progress on formalising a track

in Urumau Reserve by August.

Joshua Merriam, on behalf

the Banks

back to them with a report

outlining how to move forward

with the track’s formalisation.

This report will include time

the group was meant to formally

recommend to the community

the meeting.

The track is a component of

the 2018 Urumau Development

Plan and its formalisation has

been a long-time coming.

The community board approved

the plan in August 2018,

including the entrance track.

However, the track has remained

classified as a “proposed

track,” in spite of being used by

both mountain bikers and walkers

alike to access the track.

Inaction from discussions

with the LRMC prompted

Merriam to take this project to

the board in March, including

a petition with more than 100

signatures for formalising the

track.

Approving the track would

allow for increased engagement

with the reserve and it

would complete the entrance

connection from Foster Tce to

the Urumau traverse track.

Native trees planted in a bid to attract tūī

• By Samantha Mythen

MORE THAN 3600 native trees

have been planted at Living

Springs by 100 local volunteers

as part of the Tūī Corridor

Project.

On June 19, the “tūī

tucker” was planted in the

hope of bringing back tūī to

Christchurch backyards.

Canterbury’s tūī population

died out in the 1970s, most likely

due to habitat loss and predation.

Since then, the region

has received visiting tūī, but

there have been no established

populations.

The initiative aims to plant

11,000 tūī-friendly plants this

year between Banks Peninsula

and the central city.

The vegetation will provide

food for the tūī to eat.

It was launched in September

last year, with 3000 native trees

planted by volunteers at the

Christchurch Adventure Park.

The project is a partnership

between Meridian Energy and

The Christchurch Foundation.

In 2009 and 2010, 72 birds

were released at Hinewai

Reserve near Akaroa and the

small population are often

sighted.

ZOOMERS: Breana Vosper, Hinnie Hobeyn, Bronte Lovell and Joel Graham

will be exhibiting their artwork at Stoddart Cottage throughout July. ​

Young artists collaborate

for Zoomers exhibition

• By Samantha Mythen

FOUR talented young

Diamond Harbour artists

from Generation Z are

showcasing their work at a

new exhibition they have

called Zoomers.

The opening event will

be held on Friday from

5-7pm at Stoddart Cottage

in Diamond Harbour.

Breana Vosper, Bronte

Lovell, Hinnie Hobeyn

and Joel Graham, who all

attend Cashmere High

School, have followed

an open theme for the

exhibition.

Brena comes from a

family of artists and has

been painting for most

of her life. Currently,

she is working with oils,

watercolour and acrylic to

paint scenes of nature and

different light forms.

Bronte’s favourite art

form is creating comics,

characters and stories

with digital art, however,

in Zoomers, she has

experimented with

painting.

Stoddart Cottage is

hosting a series of

winter workshops

to help get the

community’s creative

juices flowing.

Said Stoddart

Cottage gallery

manager Dr Jo

Burzynska: “We’re

really excited about

the workshops, as it’s

the first time we’ve

run a programme of

this kind.”

Joel Graham’s digital

artwork

Hinnie is a self-taught

artist who started drawing

as soon as she could hold

a pencil. Pencil drawings

and line art remain her

favourite style, but she

creates art using a wide

variety of mediums.

living in Afghanistan,

where his parents worked

in aid and development,

The workshops

have been supported

The exhibition has

Hagar International.

The young artists will

be donating 10 per cent

of the sale price of their

artworks sold to the

group.

Janie Porter, who

show said: “It is always

good for young people

to have encouragement

from galleries to show

their work and rise to the

exhibitions.

Ford’s cheeky Puma ready to pounce

WHILE THE sport utility market

is ever-expanding, the cars within

it are shrinking.

Ford’s newcomer into that

segment is the Puma, a cheeky,

squat SUV that is bulbous and

well rounded; if you think

Nissan Juke then the two aren’t

dissimilar, although my son

likens the front of the Puma’s

design, especially the way the

lights are angled, to Porsche’s

Macan.

Of course, the Puma is built

for a completely different

market, it will attract a wide

cross-section of buyers, those

from the younger generation

who like its trendy style, right

through to those in retirement

who will benefit from its ease

of access and easy-to-drive

characteristics.

Sitting at just 4.2mm, the

Puma is a compact five-seater,

but there’s good load space so

that the belongings we tend to

carry with us can be adequately

stored. Ford claims a 410-litre

load space capacity extending to

1170-litres if the rear seats are

folded forward.

At the other end sits a 999cc

three-cylinder turbocharged

engine.

This configuration is somewhat

the direction Ford has been

travelling in lately – no pun

intended. Some Focus models

have three-cylinder engines, and

I’m sure as other models come

through, so will engines of this

size be utilised.

Even though it is just 1-litre, the

Puma’s unit is quite feisty. Ford

rate it with healthy power outputs

of 92kW and 170Nm, as is the

case with most new-generation

turbo units, it has strong midrange

performance, the torque

figure is broad, being available

all of the way from 1400rpm to

4500rpm.

Adding in the proximity of

ratios through a seven-speed

automatic transmission means

there is little chance of the engine

going off-boost during the

acceleration process.

The Puma lands in two

specification variants. The

evaluation car was the ST-Line

model which lands at $37,990, the

base model car lists at $34,990

and shouldn’t be dismissed, it too

has all of the features which make

FORD PUMA: Healthy fuel usage figures..

today’s modern car so appealing.

The ST-Line Puma is

recognised by its high level of

fitment even though cloth trim

greets the occupants. The seat

fabric has red stitching which

fits with the ST (sport tuned)

specification. Satellite navigation

is fitted along with Apple CarPlay

and Android Auto connectivity,

keyless entry and ignition, voice

control and wireless mobile

phone charging. It also gets

adaptive cruise control which is

part of a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating, the Puma is

chock full of the electronic and

mechanical functions that keep

you safe in the first instance and

to protect you in a collision.

The Puma is built in

Romania, it shares many of

the characteristics which make

European Fords so desirable,

especially so with the way it feels

connected to the road and the

associated satisfaction you get as

a driver.

Sure, the power outputs are

such that the Puma will never

set the world alight with its

acceleration or speed, but it

handles beautifully, a lot of

that is attributable to the sport

suspension settings. However,

don’t be put off, ST specification

doesn’t mean a hard ride, I still

rate in-cabin comfort as perfectly

acceptable and, of course, the

base model Puma has standard

spring and damper rates.

Three-cylinder engines are

generally built to enhance

• Price – Ford Puma ST-Line,

$37,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4186mm; width, 1805mm;

height, 1550mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

999cc, 92kW,

170Nm, seven-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

economy and lower emissions.

That can certainly be said for

the Puma’s unit, with little in

the way of reciprocating mass it

contributes to the light weight of

the car in total (1285kg).

That being the case, there are

fairly healthy fuel usage figures

to report. Ford claim up to

5.3l/100km can be achieved on a

combined cycle average.

My time in the evaluation car

consisted of several suburb to city

commutes and a long highway

excursion. The fuel usage readout

was listing at 6.4l/100km when I

took the car back to the Sockburn

dealership. At 100km/h the

readout sits at 4.4l/100km, the

engine spinning over gently at

just 2000rpm in seventh gear.

The Puma is effectively a

replacement for the popular Ford

EcoSport. That car sold well in

New Zealand, it’s my guess the

Puma will pick up where the

EcoSport left off.
