Parked cars make access

for fire appliances difficult

• By Samantha Mythen

CARS PARKING illegally and

in positions making Lyttelton’s

narrow streets even narrower

are preventing fire appliances

from reaching call-outs, delaying

firefighting efforts.

The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire

Brigade want people to think

more about where and how they

park after a car was parked over

a hydrant near a house fire they

attended.

“Cars are

parking around

Lyttelton and

it’s hindering

our access,”

chief fire officer

Mark Buckley

said.

“And it’s only

Mark Buckley getting worse,

not better.”

Last Thursday, the brigade

attended a house fire on Cressy St

at 1.40pm.

The sole male occupant escaped

from the house and was treated

for smoke inhalation at the scene.

“It was as good of an outcome

as could possibly be,” Buckley

said.

TIGHT SQUEEZE: The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade is finding it increasingly harder to navigate its fire appliances

along Lyttelton’s narrow streets often because of parked cars. Cunningham Tce is one that is difficult.

THERE’S A hardy group of

people called the Scarborough

Dippers who are nearly

halfway through Wet July.

On pages 6, 7 and 8, reporter

Chris Barclay profiles dippers’

leader Kerry Newton in our

regular Our People segment.

The dippers are cold water

swimmers, who say soaking

up the super cold winter water

is therapeutic.

“The shock of the cold water

is meant to do good things,”

says Kerry.

“Plus, it’s meant to be good

for mental health. There’s been

quite a few stories of people

that have had depression and

things like that, they immerse

themselves in the cold water

and they’ve managed to get off

their antidepressants.”

I think I’ll save my winter

plunge for the hot pools.

Fire concerns yet to be addressed

NEWS 3

In Brief

• By Samantha Mythen

FOSTER AND Gilmore Tce

residents in Lyttelton are

concerned about the lack of

progress to address their unease

about the fire risk in Urumau

Reserve, which borders their

homes.

Said neighbouring resident

Nick Jackman: “Who is responsible

and taking control? There

has been no clear authority at

the moment on what is going

on.”

Jackman originally took the

residents’ concerns to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board’s

attention at the beginning of

March.

As a result, the board raised

these issues with the city council,

including the parks team

and requested a report on the

matter to come back to it.

Almost five months later and

the residents have not yet seen

an outcome to their concerns.

The city council told Bay

Harbour News a report

regarding the reserve is

scheduled to go to the

community board at an

upcoming meeting. The date

has yet to be confirmed nor can

the city council reveal the staff’s

recommendations.

Brian Lodge, another Foster

Tce resident spoke to the city

council about the residents’

ACTION NOW: Nick Jackman wants his home protected

from the fire risk presented by Urumau Reserve.

concerns in May.

“Most of the councillors were

very supportive, including the

mayor who said we had to do

something about fire prevention,

particularly after the Cass Bay

fire,” he said.

“But bureaucracy means it

takes a long time for things to

occur.”

Lodge said their main concern

was that the Reserve Management

Committee had planted a

native belt right on the boundary

of the reserve right next to

their homes.

“There’s also gorse, dead flax

leaves and long grass where the

natives are not maintained well,”

he said.

“We might as well pour petrol

underneath it.”

Residents have struggled to get

answers from the RMC.

“When it comes up at the

RMC it is not talked about much

and it seems that because it is

winter, there is no need to do

anything now. There’s a put-off

until spring or summer attitude,”

Lodge said.

“But we don’t want to wait, we

want this done now.”

Nick Jackman said he and

other concerned Foster Tce

residents had provided the RMC

with a list of the things they

have found to be “not the best

practice” according to Scion Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Has

Reserve? Email samantha.

mythen@starmedia.kiwi

forest fire management guidelines.

“But there has been no followup

from them on what they are

doing to address this,” Jackman

said.

He believes the whole issue is

being made more complicated

than it really is.

“There are pamphlets published

for the general public

about how to mitigate fire

risk with the should do and

shouldn’t dos, which take five

minutes to read,” Jackman said.

Said RMC chairman Brian

Downey: “Our fire management

on the reserve follows the Urumau

Development plan, which

is dictated by the community

board. We are doing the best we

can.”

Banks Peninsula councillor

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said the community

board needed to hear back from

experts including park rangers

and Fire and Emergency New

Zealand.

“It is about coming up with

a solution that everyone can

understand,” he said.

PROTECTION FOR DOCK

The Lyttelton Port Company

has recently installed new edge

protection around its historic dry

dock. The dock, opened in 1883,

is listed as a Category 1 heritage

site and now features 3m long

removable sections of railing

installed around the edge.

MOUNTAIN BIKE TRACK

THe Heathcote Valley Mountain

Biking club held their second

winter dig event and saw another

30m² of soil added to the existing

jump mounds. The group has a

goal of planting 1000 natives and

has three more winter working

bees planned each second Sunday

of the month throughout winter.

BUILDING BLESSED

THe old Coastguard Canterbury

base at Naval Point has been

blessed by Te Hapū o Ngāti

Wheke ahead of its demolition

that will make room for SailGP

facilities, and a new temporary

base building for the coastguard.

PLANTING EVENTS

Volunteers have completed

planting 50 per cent of a 300m x

10m “green fire break” in Drayton

Reserve after a fire devastated the

area in January. Planting events

will continue throughout July.

THIS IS what the widened

Dyers Pass Rd is looking like

in a bid to make it safer for

motorists and cyclists.

Up to 1.25m is being added to

the width of the narrowest parts

of the road.

Dyers Pass Rd is only about

5.5 to 6m wide in many areas.

Contractors Higgins Construction

is working on behalf of city

council to increase the width of

the road to a consistent 6.75m.

“The additional road shoulder

width is expected to improve

everyone’s safety and reduce

conflict between road users,”

said city council acting head of

transport Lynette Ellis.

The road widening work

is part of a $7.2 million project

to improve the safety of the

road that has had a high crash

rate.

“The steep terrain means that

• From page 1

The fire affected the kitchen

and a bedroom and was contained

by about 3pm.

However, a car parked over the

nearest fire hydrant to the house

hampered firefighting efforts.

This is a theme Buckley said his

team are increasingly seeing in

Lyttelton, with cars either parking

over fire hydrants or parking

in obtrusive positions.

He wants people to be aware

and think about where and how

they park.

The appliances are much bigger

than cars and already struggle

to navigate Lyttelton’s narrow

streets without cars making it

more difficult.

“We are dealing with life or

death situations and if we can’t

get our appliances close enough

to the fire, it is taking our tanks

longer to get to the house and

taking longer to rescue people,”

he said.

Cunningham Tce and Reserve

Tce are the worst streets to travel

along he said.

“Cars are parked in positions

on corners or opposite cars on

the other side of the road making

narrow streets even narrower,”

said Buckley.

now, they aren’t thinking about

the implications.”

There have been several instances

where the fire appliance

has got stuck on Cunningham

Tce between a fence and car

and they were unable to reach a

house.

Buckley said they do not

want to have to get the police or

parking enforcement involved

to ticket those who are illegally

parking, rather they want people

to take some responsibility on

where they park.

A fire investigator is still determining

the cause of the fire on

Thursday. There were no smoke

alarms in the house at the time of

the fire.

Fire risk management officer

Wayne Hamilton echoed

Buckley’s sentiments: “It is a

reminder for people, especially in

Lyttelton, to check first and not

park in front of hydrants.”

OUR PEOPLE – KERRY NEWTON

Taking the daily plunge – a chilly

It’s the polar opposite

of Dry July. A group

of hardy souls have

committed to taking a

daily dip off Scarborough

Beach every day this

month before dawn.

Chris Barclay goes

in-depth with Sumnerbased

ocean swimmer

Kerry Newton dreamt

up Wet July in 2017, a

fundraising concept with

complementary health

benefits

Wet July. Talk us through

why you tipped your toes into

fund-raising cold, hard cash in

the middle of winter.

I’ve always been a keen ocean

swimmer. It was a beautiful

winter’s day in July, 2017 and I

thought: ‘Look at that water out

there’. Wouldn’t it be good to

be actually enjoying the water

during the winter when it’s a

southerly? It’s calm and it looks

so inviting. (Alcohol-free) Dry

July, the fundraising was going

on for that and I thought: ‘Why

don’t I set the challenge of Wet

July?’ I’ll see who else wants to

join me going into the water

DOUBLE DIPPING: Devoted ocean swimmer and fundraiser Kerry Newton returns to the

water off Scarborough hours after another pre-dawn immersion. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

every day in July and we’ll find

a charity to raise money for …

that’s how it all began. I got three

other people to sign up with me

(Sandra Taylor, Bee Rueder and

Cathe Grater). We raised money

for (marine rescue organisation)

Project Jonah New Zealand. As

time’s gone on more and more

people have embraced it. We’ve

got about 40 committed to

dipping this year. We’ve got a few

in their 20s and a couple close to

80 years-old. It’s predominantly

female.

We’re a fortnight into Wet

July. What happens when the

mercury reads 0, there’s a wind

chill factor, it’s sleeting and

it’s dark for another hour or

so? The perfect storm. Ever

considered staying in the car or

jumping ship after 20 seconds?

Not really, because it gets

addictive. Sometimes it’s actually

warmer in the water, especially if

there’s a frost or you’ve got that

southerly. Admittedly it’s not

much fun when the tide is out

and you’ve got to walk across the

sand with the southerly howling

at us.

So how long do you ‘dip’ for?

It was all kind of trial and

error at the start. We used to

get in the water, chat and laugh

and bob about. Then we decided

maybe we should try and stay in

for the number of minutes that

corresponds to the temperature.

We have a thermometer. If it’s 10

degrees, we stay in 10 minutes.

We have no rules that we must

stay in for 10 minutes and things

like that, that just became a

bit more of a challenge. Some

people have found if they stay in

for 10 minutes they’re cold for

the rest of the day. Some people

might stay in for five and get out.

Sometimes we’re busy chatting

or whatever and we end up

staying in for longer.

way to raise money for charities

What do you talk about? Are

the teeth chattering?

We have all sorts of

conversations out there. You

tend to find that while you’re in

the water it’s not too bad. Maybe

about 10 minutes after you get

out your body temperature

actually cools down, that’s the

danger of staying in too long.

That’s why you’ve got to know

your own body and not stay out

there too long.

What’s the temperature

variance during July?

‘Hypothermic’ to ‘penguins

wouldn’t swim in this?’

In the past it has been as low as

8 deg C, at the moment it’s about

10.

Has anyone ever got out of

their depth with the likes of

hypothermia?

So far we’ve been lucky. You

will notice your fingertips are

white and things like that. So far

we haven’t had anything extreme

happen but now we’re more

numbers we have to be a little bit

careful getting in if it’s rough.

The benefit of Scarborough is it’s

normally pretty okay. When it’s

high tide and if there’s a wind

blowing and you’re getting down

the steps … sometimes we might

say it’s a bit rough here, let’s go

down the beach a bit. We have to

be careful with the age range and

HARDY SOULS: Members of the Scarborough Dippers brace themselves for another chilly

Wet July exercise.

the people that we’ve got.

How far do you venture from

shore?

We go out until we’re waistdeep.

Our loose rules are we’ve

got to get our head under. By the

end of it we’ve kind of had to dive

under, be fully immersed, then

we get out.

Do you encounter much

marine life?

We often get bitten by crabs.

We’ve seen hector’s dolphins a

few times, at the moment there

are quite a few seals about. It’s

dark when we get in so often we

won’t see things . . . then a shag

will pop its head up amongst the

group. If we wake the seagulls up

sometimes they dive bomb us.

Is there a frantic dash for the

towels and puffer jackets when

time is up? How do you ward off

the cold?

We have hot water bottles,

buckets of hot water to put our

feet in for a couple of minutes.

The beauty of it now is the cafe

at Scarborough Fare opens at 7

o’clock. It didn’t use to open until

8. We don’t go in there every day

but they put the heat pump on for

us and we’re all in there with the

buckets (of hot water).

What happens if a committed

dipper can’t make it to

Scarborough for a day or two?

Is there a degree of flexibility

built in?

I’m a prime example, I’ve just

been up in the North Island for

a few days. I had to go dipping

up there. There was a swim race

at Waiheke Island, a few of us

were competing in that so we

had the luxury of dipping in

about 15 degrees. We’ve got this

facebook page and every day we

have a group photo of what day

number we’re up to and anybody

that’s not there, they have to do

dipping somewhere else and

provide a photo. You might have

to find a lake or a river. It’s quite

interesting where people end up.

The other day a couple had an

early yoga class so they had to

dip in an ice bath. Basically it’s

7am every morning, but on the

weekend we dip (or float) a bit

later.

Do dippers try to bend the

rules. Do the hot pools at

Hanmer Springs or Waiwera

count?

No, we can’t have cheating.

What about wetsuits? Do they

fit the Wet July image or are

they a bad look?

We haven’t had anyone one yet

that’s gone to that extreme. We

wouldn’t not let them wear one.

We’re just happy to wear togs.

What organisations have

benefited from the dippers’

fortitude?

Project Jonah was the first,

they basically rescue whales.

The second year we raised funds

for the Sumner Lifeboat Club,

they bought a defibrillator. In

2019 we raised money for solar

lights to be put up at Cave Rock,

unfortunately that project hasn’t

really happened. The money’s

still sitting there. Last year the

funds were split between the

Sumner Surf Club (binoculars

and equipment) and Taylors

Mistake Surf Club (landscaping

at new headquarters). This

year we’re spreading the

donations around: The Sumner

Kindergarten needs some new

equipment, there’s a surfboard

library starting up – they’re

making surfboards for people to

use. We’re also contributing to

life vests for disabled surfers. The

first year we raised $1000 – there

were only four of us – last year we

raised $6000.

How is the money raised? Are

the dippers sponsored like the

whiskered men of Movember?

When I set this challenge I

decided I’m going to donate $10 a

day for every day I dip, so its $310

at the end of the month. If I miss

a day I’m going to have to put

$50 in. To date I’ve never had to

put $50 in. Other people donate

whatever or they might get

friends to donate to the challenge.

We haven’t actively asked for

sponsorship, it’s just amongst

ourselves. We don’t force anyone

to put money in.

Money is not the only bottom

line is it? Dipping can be

enriching in other ways can’t it?

The other good thing I’ve

enjoyed about it is a lot of

people haven’t been confident

they’ve mucked around with us,

they’re now taking swimming

and being able to then continue

to improve themselves and really

be able to swim.

There are also perceived

health benefits from cold water

dipping aren’t there?

It’s meant to help your immune

system. The shock of the cold

water is meant to do good things.

Plus, it’s meant to be good for

mental health. There’s been

quite a few stories of people

that have had depression and

things like that, they immerse

themselves in the cold water and

they’ve managed to get off their

antidepressants.

Give your kilts an outing

THE AKAROA Scottish Country

Dance Club is hosting an open day

on Sunday, inviting members of the

public to get kitted out in a kilt.

Committee member Alison

Ruddenklau said the event will be

held at The Gaiety from 2-4pm.

Visitors are welcome to join in,

enjoy the music and try out a new,

playful style of dance.

“It is a family event so everyone can

give it a go,” she said.

“A friendly tutor can help guide you

with the basic dancing moves.”

Scottish country dancing is a style

of dance involving groups of couples

tracing patterns in a sequence.

This style of dance can be traced

back to the 18th-century.

Treasures from the past

Bay Harbour News is running a regular

column from Te Ūaka The Lyttelton

Museum, Treasures From The Past.

The museum was closed after its

building was lost in the earthquakes and

a fundraising campaign is under way for a

new building on London St, on land gifted

by the city council, while an application

for consent is in progress. To find out more

about the new building go to https://www.

at the Airforce Museum at Wigram and is

Today’s column focuses on Lyttelton

Borough School, 1874.

On a fine December evening in 1874,

the children of the various divisions of the

newly built school were marched in good

order to the Colonists’ Hall.

There, in front of their teachers, parents,

NUMBER ONE SUPPLIER

50 YEARS

friends, and assorted dignitaries, the very

best of them would receive a borough

council prize, presented by the newly

elected mayor, Dr Rouse.

A special mayor’s prize for the neatest

girl was also presented, and after being

reminded by some ladies present that boys

might also be as tidy as girls, his Worship

declared, to cheers from the audience,

a prize for the tidiest boy (The Press

December 18, 1874).

At this time the school had about 600

students on the roll, and would continue

to service the community of Ōhinehou/

Lyttelton for another 67 years until it was

demolished in 1941 to make way for the

Lyttelton Main School.

And in the fullness of time, so too

the Main School passed into the history

books, demolished after the February,

2011 earthquake to be replaced by the

Lyttelton Primary School in 2016.

LITTLE RIVER has a playful

new mural created by local artist

Frankie Bakker with help from

Little River School pupils.

Bakker met with the year

4 and 5 pupils in February to

gather their ideas on how to turn

the blank wall at the tennis club

opposite their school into something

unique and colourful.

She showed them her Pop-Up

Penguin, which raised $17,500

for the Cholmondeley Children’s

Centre, and another mural she

created at a zoo in Japan.

The pupils then got to work,

drawing their own ideas for

creating their own mural.

Using the children’s ideas as

inspiration, Bakker put together

a final design.

Copies of this were printed for

the children to take home and

colour in.

The city council anti-graffiti

team provided Bakker with

paint and for the past five weeks,

she has been busy turning the

children’s ideas into reality.

Because the school is right

next door the children have been

able to see the mural developing

each day, Bakker putting in at

least 100 hours of painting time.

“I totally adored the experience,”

Bakker said.

“The children would come out

and see what I was doing during

the day and ask me lots of questions

about the process such as

how did you blend that?”

Teacher Tara Sutherland said

it’s been “an unforgettable experience”

for her class.

“Frankie encouraged the

children to free their inner

artist and let go of the need to be

‘perfect’– no idea was too crazy

and everyone’s contribution was

valued,” she said.

“When we thought back on

the experience, the pupils said

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Mural provides vivid view for pupils

COLOURFUL CREATION: Budding artists at Little River School helped local artist Frankie

Bakker come up with the design of a new mural.

they loved working together,

choosing what to do for the

mural, picking the colours and

knowing it’s their own work and

it will stay there for a long time.’”

The mural includes glow-inthe-dark

paint for the moreporks’

eyes, blossoms, and tree

lights.

A second mural on the other

side of the wall has been planned

out by Bakker and the pupils. It

will be painted in spring.

Bakker said the design for

this mural includes a crownadorned

pukeko, a trout holding

a lantern and eels doing somersaults.

She is also beginning art classes

next term for those students

who are eager to learn more

about art.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board and Creative

funding for the mural project.

Playground

equipment

awaits approval

• By Samantha Mythen

THE Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

will today discuss approving new

playground equipment for Te

Papa Kura Redcliffs.

The playground equipment will

include a swing set donated by

Ruth and Jeremy Markham-Short.

They are hoping to donate the

swing set in memory of their

23-month-old son Reuben who

died in late 2020.

The parents spoke to the board

about the idea earlier in the year,

sharing their personal story of

loss.

During the meeting, board

chairwoman Alexandra Davids

said: “Everyone is very supportive

of this effort and it will absolutely

go ahead.”

Reuben contracted meningococcal

disease. He loved playing

on the swings.

The parents would like to see

the swing set at the park as it is

near where Reuben went to preschool.

Alongside the swing set, there

will be a small slide, nature play,

including boulders and stepping

posts, and safety surfacing.

The city council, in a report

to the community board, is

recommending that it approves

the plan.

Creative hub a step closer for Lyttelton

• By Samantha Mythen

A MAKERSPACE for Lyttelton

could be operating later this year

after the project received a grant.

Te Puna Auaha will be a space

where people can hang out

and work together on projects,

sharing ideas, equipment and

knowledge.

The trust behind the project

has received a $13,470 grant from

the city council’s Enliven Places

Projects Fund.

Alongside this, they have

managed to purchase several

containers for the site, despite

the international container

shortage, and in 2020, the trust

raised more than $10,000 with a

successful Boosted campaign.

An application for a resource

consent has been lodged.

Te Puna Auaha Trust chairman

Paul Dietsche acknowledged

the community’s support

and generosity in making the

project happen.

“A community makerspace

for everyone, celebrating

inclusive, accessible learning

and the sharing of mātauranga

[knowledge] between

generations is at the core of the

vision for this space,” he said.

“We had some very kind

donations from people and

businesses in the community.”

It is hoped for a soft opening of

the space in spring with working

bees to finalise the set-up.

The chosen site is at 7 Norwich

Quay, which is currently an

empty lot owned by the Lyttelton

Port Company.

Port company engagement

and sustainability general

manager Phil de Joux said:

“Having a space where people

can come together to share tools

and knowledge will be a great

benefit to the community. We

also know that a number of LPC

staff are very excited to have

these resources available on our

doorstep.”

Te Puna Auaha means

“spring or pool of creativity and

innovation.”

It will finally be able to place

the tools and woodworking

machines donated by Linwood

College, which have been in

storage for two years, into a new

home.

A mural, designed by Ngāti

Wheke artist James Korako,

will be painted on the wall

of a neighbouring building overlooking

the site. A depiction of

the mural has been included in

the concept render (above).

MAKERSPACE:

A concept

render by Sam

Weston of Te

Puna Auaha, a

Trustee Jennifer Clarke said:

“Kia whakatōmuri te haere

whakamua, ‘I walk backwards

into the future with my

eyes fixed on my past’ is the

whakatauki [proverb] for this

work. It will be fantastic to

have James’ art up for the

community and it will provide a

powerful backdrop for the

makerspace below.”

Speed limits

I am emailing in regards to the

consultation to drop the speed

limit from 50km/h to 40km/h

between Lyttleton and Cass Bay.

The drivers causing the issues

around safety and excessive

speed are going to be causing the

issues no matter what the speed

limit. If it is dropped to 40km/h

it will not deter or stop these

drivers or make the road safer.

Unless the road is policed for

safety it doesn’t matter if it is

50km/h or 40km/h, the drivers

causing the issues will still be

there. Yes, driving slower is safer

but also inconvenient and can

create some tension with drivers

overtaking.

I drove the road at 40km/h

and to be honest, there were a

couple of spots that could be

warranted at that speed where

the road is narrow with cars

parked, but 50km/h seems like

the correct speed. The quality

of the road is an issue and as a

community we have addressed

this with Andrew Turner.

We have asked on several

occasions what the long-term

plan is for this road with the

repairs and making the road

safer, with no response.

– Craig Shaw, Cass Bay

A lower speed limit on the

majority of Lyttelton’s streets

will make no difference, since

most of the streets are short and

narrow, and I am all for making

streets safer.

SAFETY: 50km signs at Cass Bay.

But when it is proposed to put

a 40km/h speed limit on a main

thoroughfare, where there is only

one road everyone uses which is

a nearly 4km-long stretch from

the tunnel, it will make the road

less safe.

People will get frustrated stuck

behind cars doing less than the

speed limit and pass when there

are on-coming cyclists or unseen

cars coming around the bend.

What I would like to see is

an edge strip added the length

of Governors Bay Rd and only

allow parking on one side of all

bar the widest parts of Brittan

and Park Tces to make it safer

for all users and all emergency

You may like to help us as we design and build a new wastewater scheme

for Akaroa.

Christchurch City Council has approved a wastewater treatment system

that will reclaim and reuse treated wastewater. This will include reuse in

Akaroa and irrigation to new areas of native trees and plants in Robinsons

Bay, Takamātua and Hammond Point and a new wetland site on Old Coach

Road next to a new treatment plant.

We are setting up a community reference group for the project to ensure

community concerns are understood and, where possible, addressed.

We need up to five community volunteers to join representatives of the

Banks Peninsula Community Board, Ōnuku Rūnanga and our project team.

The group will help us in the lead-up to our irrigation consent application.

The role of its members is to suggest ways to address community concerns

and ideas to enable the project to be as beneficial as possible to the

community, through opportunities for improved recreation, heritage,

education, ecology, landscape and the like.

If this interests you and you have constructive ideas, we’d love to hear

from you.

Don’t let pain

keep you down

Book a physio and get back to

the things you love this winter.

Winter is a time of year that invites us to slow down

to rest and renew. For some, it means getting out to

our favourite winter sports such as snowboarding or

skiing! However you choose to spend these shorter,

cooler days, it’s essential to keep your body moving.

For those who experience physical pain, that is easier

said than done.

Heat plays a crucial part in helping muscles and joints relax,

so it’s no surprise that the cold weather can make pain feel

worse, making it harder to stay active. Depending on what

causes your pain, there are some things you can do to help

manage it during winter. Aaron Searle, clinical lead at Habit

Health recommends the following:

• Spend a little extra time warming up before exercise.

• Get seven to eight hours of restful sleep each night.

• Eat plenty of nutrient-rich foods.

• Drink plenty of water, so you stay hydrated to help

protect your joints and muscles.

If the pain you’re experiencing is a little more complicated

than just cold weather, a physiotherapist could help. Physiotherapists

are trained health professionals who help address

and treat the pain that negatively impacts your daily life. They

provide you with the tools to help manage your pain so you

can get back to the things you love doing.

Habit Health has highly skilled physiotherapists trained in

musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries and other problems causing

pain. As no two patients are the same, the Habit Health team

will assess your injury, your body, and your experience holistically

to ensure the treatment plan they provide is right for

your unique needs. The physio may also recommend and refer

you to another specialist who can support you on your pain

management journey.

Ultimately, your body is meant to move, so don’t let pain

get you down this winter. Book a physio and get back to the

things you love.

From the very bottom to the tippy-top, there’s a Habit Health

clinic near you. Look out for our local names, like Habit Rehab

and Southern Rehab.

Rally-bred Yaris provides the thrills

TOYOTA IS no stranger to rally

success. I remember well the

heady days during the early 90s

when the amazing Celica GT-

Four dominated the World Rally

Championship.

Toyota distanced itself from

rallying for many years, it dabbled

in formula one and sports

endurance racing, however, it

came back to rallying in 2017

and the company has had success

with the Yaris, winning the WRC

in 2019 and 2020.

While the Yaris is a world apart

from the Celica as I know it –

the latter was part of the Kiddie-family

line-up for many years

– the Yaris with its hatchback

design lends itself to the WRC,

competing against other small

hatchbacks such as Ford’s Fiesta,

Volkswagen Polo and Citroen

DS3.

Toyota has just introduced a

new Yaris on the New Zealand

market. It comes in many guises –

petrol-only models, hybrids and

the funky Yaris Cross. I’ve driven

all in recent months and can

report that they uphold the values

Toyota has in a small car.

However, there is one major

surprise within the Yaris line-up

and that is the GR model, a car

inspired by the WRC-winning

model. GR is an abbreviation for

Gazoo Racing which is Toyota’s

performance arm that helped

develop the WRC car.

The GR Yaris in road-going

form is no rally car, but it doesn’t

miss out by much. Firstly, it is

powered by a 1.6-litre three-cylinder

heavily turbocharged

engine, it has a six-speed manual

transmission and drives out all

four wheels and, what’s more, you

can direct drive to give you that

rally feel, power can be proportioned

heavily to the rear, or to

the front, or have a 50:50 split

should you desire that.

Personally, I like the push you

get from the rear, so during my

time with the test car I drove it

in sport mode which sends 70

per cent in that direction. Under

power you can almost force oversteer,

which is immense fun, and

there is more than enough power

on tap to do that.

Putting that into context, the

engine is rated with 200kW

and 370Nm, outputs realised at

6500rpm and 3000-4600rpm

respectively, all those figures considered,

the Yaris is quick, strong

and willing under all driving conditions.

It is also eager, you know

as a driver it wants to get hunting,

the turbo boost is strong and the

engine will fly to high revolutions

if the accelerator is given any

minor provocation.

According to Toyota, the GR

Yaris will make 100km/h from a

standstill in 5.2sec, and it will also

lunge to 120km/h from 80km/h

in 4.5sec. It will also make

230km/h if laws allowed.

I had some items to pick up

from Rangiora, so the obvious

choice of roads to get home to my

city suburb was through Loburn,

Oxford and State Highway 72.

They weren’t perfect roads for

the GR Yaris simply because there

THRILLING:

aren’t enough corners, but I did

backtrack into an area where

there were some challenges and

enjoyed the feel of knowing the

driver is in command.

Just when you think it will drift

nicely out of a corner, grip comes

in from the front to pull the car

straight and it powers off until

the next corner arrives. When

that happens, huge stopping force

through a premium brake system

comes into play.

Grip is supplied by high quality

Michelin tyres (225/40 x 18in),

and with a comparatively heavy

steering feel all the ingredients

are in place for spirited motoring.

Shifts through the six-speeder

are short and direct, there’s no

chance of wrong-slotting, and

clutch action, while firmish under

foot, is progressive.

There’s also an intelligent

manual transmission mode that

will blip the engine on downshift,

matching the revs to the gearing,

much like we used to do with the

double de-clutch method.

The GR Yaris is an absolute

blast to drive, it feels twitchy with

its short wheelbase, but such

is the grip and control it has it

inspires confidence. It is playful,

yet safe at the same time with

traction control systems intervening

when forces are outweighing

the law of physics.

Even though the GR Yaris is

six-speed manual

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.2sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

based on the WRC car, I didn’t

take it off the seal as such, it had

been presented beautifully and

I didn’t want to risk stone chips

and be presented with a massive

clean-up job. But I did find a

couple of corners that had loose

surface seal and I was able to feel

electronics working in order to

maintain grip and acceleration.

The GR Yaris builds on the fun

angle that Toyota has pitched for

the new Yaris series and you can

glean immense pleasure from it,

it most certainly is an exhilarating

car that tugs at all the senses.

The engine has a characteristic

throb, it sounds chunky but

sings sweetly from 4000rpm

onwards letting the driver know

it is enjoying its work. There’s no

point in the rev band where it

doesn’t want to work freely, it will

also dawdle the city streets in tall

gears, the turbo producing huge

torque that allows the car to pull

from very low revolutions.

There is a little trade-off in

terms fuel usage. Normally, you’d

expect a 1.6-litre engine to garner

an average better than 7.6-litres

per 100km, but if you want performance

that is the price to pay.

When I took the test car back

to the dealership it was showing

9.8l/100km on the readout, perhaps

an indication of how much

I enjoyed hearing and feeling

that engine work. At 100km/h an

instantaneous reading of 5l/10kmn

can be expected (engine

speed 2500rpm). All that aside, a

generous 50-litre fuel tank means

frequent top-ups can be avoided.

In terms of fitment, the GR

Yaris has all the goods. It has

an in-cabin environment that

matches the sporty exterior

design, and has specification

that justifies a very respectable

$54,990 price tag.

My wife recently suggested we

buy a Yaris for our retirement. I’d

certainly be interested in the GR,

the only thing is she’s not thrilled

with cars that have manual transmission,

I’ve obviously got a bit of

work ahead if I’m to convince her

the GR is the car for us.

In the interim anyone who does

get to have one in their garage on

a permanent basis will certainly

be rewarded, it is one stroppy hot

hatchback.

Our vision is simple.

To be relatable and genuine home specialists within

our chosen communities.

We operate with complete transparency, translating

into the best outcome for you and your well being. We

are about building alifetime of strong relationships.

You matter, we care.

A L O O K A T T H E MA R K E T | E D D I E & KI E R E N

What we are seeing on the ground:

At the beginning of the year, we witnessed the strongest

market Christchurch has ever seen. We had the lowest

volume on the market since post -earthquake and the

market was aflood with buyers. This drove prices up at an

incredible rate. Seven months on to July 2021 there are a

record low number of properties on the market, however

the ‘flood’ of buyers has somewhat decreased from the

start of this year. The media is playing their part to try to ‘

cool’ the housing market with alot of ‘ click bait’ but

ultimately prices are still rising, just not at the rate they

were at the end of 2020 to early 2021.

Regardless of what your plans may be with your HOME, there

has never been abetter market to know where the value of

your HOME sits. Whether it be to use your existing home as

leverage to complete that renovation you have always wanted

to complete, to purchase an investment or holiday home, or to

merely know what you’re sitting on for your retirement.

Whatever your plans are, we are here to help you on your

journey whenever you may need us.

For friendly, genuine advice, contact aHOME specialist today.
