LINWOOD-Central-Heathcote

community board member

Darrell Latham wants the city

council to keep Humphreys Drive

at 70km/h.

He is concerned the proposed

speed reduction will increase

commuter times for motorists

driving into the city.

“Given the recent speed reductions

from 50km/h to 30km/h

through the Woolston Village,

transit times for residents commuting

to the city are likely to

increase,” he said.

“The route via Humphreys

Drive provides an alternative and

quicker option for many coastal

residents.”

The city council is proposing

to reduce the current 70km/h

speed to 60km/h in an effort to

make it safer for both cyclists and

motorists who share the road.

Brand-new Four Square

opens in Diamond Harbour

iamond Harbour is due to get a brand

new Four Square. Opening its doors

Don Tuesday 10th August, the purposebuilt

store, which is located at Shop 5,

143 Marine Drive, will be owned and operated

by two familiar faces, James Grant and Laura

Palmer, currently the operators of the nearby

On The Spot store.

For James and Laura, opening a Four Square

Supermarket turns a long-held family dream

into a reality.

“We’re really excited about opening the new

store, the Four Square is four times the size of

our previous place, which means we can offer

so much more to this awesome community.”

The new store will feature a wide selection

of fresh and chilled foods, a comprehensive

wine and beer selection, which includes zero

alcohol options, self-checkouts, electronic shelf

ticketing, a state-of-the-art highly sustainable

CO2 refrigeration system and a Lotto kiosk.

The 62nd Four Square to open in South Island

couldn’t have come at a better time, says

Steve Alexander. “Since Covid-19 came along

we’re finding customers want to shop closer

to home, so we’re absolutely delighted to be

bringing the convenience and choice that a

Four Square Supermarket has to offer to the

Diamond Harbour community.”

Owner operator James says the whole family

can’t wait to open up shop. “We’re all up there,

but I think our daughter Harriet is the most

excited about the opening of the new store.

Since moving to Diamond Harbour four years

ago, we’re proud to call this community home

and feel privileged to be working alongside our

team of ten. We’ll be looking to take on some

more team members to help us over the busy

Christmas and summer period.”

Four Square Diamond Harbour officially

opens on Tuesday 10th August with an

official ribbon cutting at 9am. Everyone’s

invited, so feel free to come and see us,

there will be free coffees all day and we’ll

fire up the BBQ.

A NEW era is about to begin

for that Sumner institution

known as the Hollywood

Cinema (see page 3).

Sumner residents Steve and

Melanie Jukes and Aluminé

and Murray Kennedy have

taken over ownership of the

cinema after being silent

partners in the business with

previous owner Lang Masters.

Lang has been the face of

the cinema for 60 years and

will stay on to play a role in

the background. He will have

much to offer.

The new owners are also

seeking feedback from the

community about what they

want to see at the cinema.

New seating and mums and

babies sessions are some of the

ideas being generated.

Sounds like the Hollywood

is in good hands for the future.

ONLINE BOOKING capacity,

upgraded seats, mums and

babies sessions, and a bar and

snack option are some of the new

features the Hollywood Cinema

in Sumner could see in place

after new owners take over in

September.

Two Sumner families who have

lived in the area for more than

30 years combined will be at the

helm: Steve Jukes, who bought

half of the business and building

in 2016, and his wife Melanie,

along with Aluminé and Murray

Kennedy.

The families had been silent

partners in the business for the

past five years.

Lang Masters, who has owned

the cinema for more than 60

years, will still very much be a

part of the team, said Aluminé

Kennedy.

“We have big shoes to fill,” she

said.

Masters turned 90 in April

and often still works seven days

a week.

“I will miss the theatre but I’ve

been here long enough now,” he

said.

“I am pleased I’ll still be able

to stay on in some capacity

though.”

Masters will continue to

help with bookings and movie

selections while the handover

takes place.

Aluminé Kennedy said:

“People will notice little things

changing but it will be a long

process.”

The new owners want the

theatre to be community-focused

and to meet the needs of both

people living there and visitors

who come to Sumner for

“a day out.”

They have already called out

to the community for feedback

and have received numerous

responses, including requests

for better soundproofing and

heating.

Many people have also offered

to volunteer at the cinema.

A DECADE on from the

earthquakes, 103 people

who received physical and

psychological injuries – or

both – still have active claims

with ACC, with financial

commitments still significant

despite numbers gradually

decreasing.

Figures obtained by Bay

Harbour News reveal there

were 20 fewer claims on the

ACC’s books for the 2020-2021

financial year, compared to 2019-

2020.

From the existing claims,

82 were classified as physical

injuries and nine as mental

injuries, while a dozen claims

were a combination of both.

ACC paid out $3,050,959

for those claims, compared to

$2,636, 894 during 2019-2020.

The amount needed for

physical injuries dropped from

$1,926,237 to $1,808 – 805 with

17 claims resolved.

But that reduction was offset

by mental injuries ($350,653 to

$571,008) and physical/mental

injuries ($360,004 to $671,146)

requiring a greater financial

commitment.

Unsurprisingly, the 2011/2012

financial year produced the

highest expenditure on claims

from the February 22, 2011

earthquake: $12,140,380, with

the bulk devoted to physical

injury treatment ($10,618,068).

There were 5996 claims in

2011-2012. Minor physical injury

claims appear to have been

resolved swiftly – 7879 physical

injury claims were made in 2010-

2011, while 12 months later the

number had reduced to 5904.

The greatest number of

physical injury claims became

inactive in 2012-2013, when 4715

dropped off the books.

Meanwhile, the number of

claimants receiving weekly

compensation relating to the

earthquake peaked in 2010/2011

at 327 (306 physical, 13 mental,

eight physical/mental),

although the bill amounted

to $1,337,393.

In the following financial year

the claimants had reduced to 240

– the only category to increase

was mental injury from 13 to 30

– but the expenditure surged to

$2,796,151.

There are currently 20

claimants across all three

categories, absorbing $1,337,658.

The bulk of the money is

required for death benefits –

weekly compensation ($830,487)

followed by support for

independence care ($357,664).

Conveyance for medical

treatment was the smallest cost

for the 2020-2021 financial year:

$1227.

Exploring

trauma

A NEW exhibition at

Christchurch Art Gallery will

reflect on how we cope with

trauma and the ways it can

transform a community.

All of the featured artists have

documented the aftermath of

traumatic events using photography,

moving image and graphic

design. Several explore the years

following the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes.

Said art gallery director Blair

Jackson: “From a starting point

of examining what the people of

Ōtautahi Christchurch have been

through in the last decade, Things

That Shape Us spreads its focus

to look at the trauma caused by

racism, inequality, climate change

and indigenous politics, from the

colonisation of Aotearoa to the

bombing of Nagasaki.”

Christchurch photographer Tim

J. Veling documents the structures

that were installed to support damaged

buildings, “echoing the care

and empathy people had for each

other,” said Jackson.

Miranda Parkes captures the

anxiety caused by the earthquakes,

Ella Sutherland considers

the future of the art gallery

building itself, and John Miller

has been photographing protests

across New Zealand for 50 years.

The exhibition runs until

November 7.

“A local team for local people”


Wednesday August 4 2021 Bay Harbour News

• By Samantha Mythen

THE FERRYMEAD Bays

Football Club wants additional

lighting in Barnett Park.

The football club has applied

to the city council for the

installation of six additional

light towers. They are hoping for

these to be installed ready for

the 2022 football season.

It would like new lighting

as club membership has

significantly increased over

recent years and the existing

lighting no longer covers the

amount of field required for

the number of players training

in the evening.

Club director

of football

Alan Walker

said 27 teams

are using

Barnett Park

but due to the

lack of lighting,

some teams

are only able to

train one night a week.

“Most teams need to train in

the evening as the coaches and

team members are all working

full time,” he said.

“The lack of night training

facilities is a city-wide

problem but it is exaggerated

here.”

Currently, there are four light

towers along the east boundary

of the playing fields and these

are used for night training,

which runs from 5.30-8.30pm

during the week from April to

September.

Two of the proposed new

lights would be installed on

the eastern field boundary

(extending the line of the four

existing lights) and four on

the western boundary, next to

the bush-covered slope below

Moncks Spur Rd.

The new light towers would

Alan Walker

be about 18m high,

4m taller than the

existing towers. Each

new tower would have

three lights and new

technology for light

distribution would

prevent the light from

entering neighbouring

properties.

The club has also been in

discussion with the Sumner

Rugby Club about the potential

for the establishment of

astroturf in the area.

Club wants

“Having great facilities for

Flying event

cancelled due

to nesting birds

• By Samantha Mythen

THE ANNUAL Float and Field

event at Lake Forsyth planned

for August 28 and 29 has been

cancelled due to nesting birds in

the area.

The Christchurch Radio Flyers

Club has held the annual fly-in

event at the lake for a number of

years.

However, in consultation

with the city council, it has

cancelled the event, which club

secretary Peter Hewson said was

“devastating.”

It was meant to be the event’s

25th anniversary and a memorial

to a club founder, who was

recently killed in a motor-cycle

crash.

“It was a great spot to fly off the

lake and the land,” said Hewson.

The club will now hold an event

at Burnham Field on the dates

originally scheduled.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Tori Peden

said the board had asked the city

council to investigate whether the

club could use the area outside of

the nesting season.

A small area of the wetland at

the head of the lake has already

been put forward as a wetland

ecosystem of national importance

for biodiversity.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said the speed limit reduction

would also “better reflect the safe

and appropriate speed recommended

by current speed management

guidance from Waka

Kotahi New Zealand Transport

Agency.”

In the past five years, there

have been six recorded crashes

along the 70km/h section of

Humphreys Drive.

Two resulted in serious injury,

two resulted in minor injury, and

two resulted in no injury.

One of the serious crashes

involved a cyclist.

The proposal comes as the

Rapanui-Shag Rock cycleway

will be completely constructed by

mid-2022.

Thomas said the city council

had not considered putting in

lights along the bike path in the

nearby Charlesworth Reserve,

which is used as an alternative

during the day for cyclists who

would usually trave; along Humphreys

Drive.

“The intention is for Humphreys

Drive to remain as the

night-time cycle route,” he said.

“Improvements to the existing

on-road cycle lanes along Humphreys

Drive include street lighting

assessments/improvements,

two sets of pedestrian and cycle

signalised crossings, widening

of the existing road shoulders

and other safety improvement

features.”

Latham said it concerned him

the city council’s intention was

for Humphreys Drive to remain

a route for cyclists, “particularly

given a serious injury accident

and after spending ratepayers

dollars creating a safer alternative

route through Charlesworth

Reserve.”

“It’s nonsensical to have two

routes as we have the opportunity

to keep cyclists 100 per cent

safe on a dedicated pathway,” he

said.

should be installed in Charlesworth

Reserve, making it safer

for cyclists rather than encouraging

“Safety is of paramount

he said.

The city council is also proposing

that Tidal View’s current

to 30km/h.

Public consultation is currently

open for the proposed speed reductions.

DIAMOND Harbour residents

have been pondering the

potential for a dog park.

Resident Liz Wyllie suggested

the idea to the Diamond Harbour

Facebook group in July.

“So many people have dogs

would be lovely to have a place

that they can play and run, not

annoying others,” she said.

“I hate having to drive to town

for this when we live in such a

lovely place.”

Another resident had suggested

the idea in June, with many

people supporting the idea.

“They generally have the

Red Zones Transitional Use Fund

that was set up by the city council

to provide support to projects

and events

Ahead of their longer-term

regeneration, the projects will

help create activity and vibrancy

in the former red zone areas.

Some of the schools involved

include Linwood College, Rawhiti

Primary, St Andrew’s College,

Burnside Primary, Christ’s College,

Avonside Girls’ High School,

Christchurch South Intermediate

and St Margaret’s College.

“The Eco-Action Nursery Trust

is doing an amazing job at both

connecting young people with

the former red zone area along

the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

and educating them about

the process for endemic native

revegetation,’’ sustainability and

community resilience chairwoman

and city councillor Sara

Templeton said.

The trust was set up two years

ago.

It collects endemic native plant

seeds, under permit from Travis

Wetland and Riccarton Bush,

propagates seedlings and grows

plants at a central nursery at

Christ’s College, using volunteer

school students and supervisors.

It is working with the schools

to help them establish satellite

nurseries, providing start-up

kits of 500 to 1000 plants and

all the equipment they need to

successfully grow them.

Eco-Action Nursery Trust

chairwoman David Newton

said the grant will allow it to get

more schools and young people

involved in the growing and

planting process.

“The native trees and plants

that are being grown by the students

through the nursery programme

provide much-needed

food and habitats for native birds

and lizards, which is another

important focus for us,’’ Newton

said.

The trust has a five-year lease on

a parcel of land off Chimera Cres,

in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

which it has started planting

with the help of volunteers.

It also has a lease on another

area of land off Gayhurst Tce

that will be ready for planting in

winter next year.

It has eight schools waiting

to join its programme and

expects to propagate 20,000

plants this year through its

nursery programme.

ADVERTORIAL

Four Square Diamond Harbour owners

James Grant and Laura Palmer with their daughter Harriet.

Brand-new Four Square

opens in Diamond Harbour

Diamond Harbour is due to get a brand

new Four Square. Opening its doors

on Tuesday 10th August, the purposebuilt

store, which is located at Shop 5,

143 Marine Drive, will be owned and operated

by two familiar faces, James Grant and Laura

Palmer, currently the operators of the nearby

On The Spot store.

For James and Laura, opening a Four Square

Supermarket turns a long-held family dream

into a reality.

“We’re really excited about opening the new

store, the Four Square is four times the size of

our previous place, which means we can offer

so much more to this awesome community.”

The new store will feature a wide selection

of fresh and chilled foods, a comprehensive

wine and beer selection, which includes zero

alcohol options, self-checkouts, electronic shelf

ticketing, a state-of-the-art highly sustainable

CO2 refrigeration system and a Lotto kiosk.

The 62nd Four Square to open in South Island

couldn’t have come at a better time, says

Four Square South Island Group Manager

Steve Alexander. “Since Covid-19 came along

we’re finding customers want to shop closer

to home, so we’re absolutely delighted to be

bringing the convenience and choice that a

Four Square Supermarket has to offer to the

Diamond Harbour community.”

Owner operator James says the whole family

can’t wait to open up shop. “We’re all up there,

but I think our daughter Harriet is the most

excited about the opening of the new store.

Since moving to Diamond Harbour four years

ago, we’re proud to call this community home

and feel privileged to be working alongside our

team of ten. We’ll be looking to take on some

more team members to help us over the busy

Christmas and summer period.”

Four Square Diamond Harbour officially

opens on Tuesday 10th August with an

official ribbon cutting at 9am. Everyone’s

invited, so feel free to come and see us,

there will be free coffees all day and we’ll

fire up the BBQ.

ONE ACTION can change the

world is what pupils from Mt

Pleasant School are encouraging

Drayton Reserve neighbours

to believe as they embark on

learning how they can be

guardians for their area.

The action slogan featured on

pamphlets made by 90 pupils,

which also contained important

information about how residents

could protect local waterways.

Pupils visited Drayton Reserve

in June to better understand waterways.

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.

They also visited Travis Wetland.

The 450 pamphlets, designed

by the pupils and delivered

around Mt Pleasant during the

July school holidays, were a result

of what they learned from the

trips.

On the pamphlet, the pupils

suggested a simple action to be

taken, such as fixing pipe leaks,

having drainage areas, creating

gardens to soak excess water and

washing cars on grass, and provided

the reasons why residents

should act.

Said teacher Lisa Chubb: “We

are empowering students to

take action through learning by

inquiry.”

The reserve is currently being

replanted in natives by volunteers,

including low flammable

species as a green-fire break for

the first 10m below residential

properties.

A fire in the reserve during

January’s hot summer wiped out

much of the native vegetation.

There were six working bees in

the reserve last month.

Work included clearing blackberry

and picking up rubbish

in the burnt area and planting

and watering seedlings. Other

work included clearing weeds,

checking traps, following up on

discharges and picking up plants.

So far, 1300 seedlings have

been planted.

Trapping efforts in the teserve

have also been successful last

month with five mice caught in

the reserve, and two mice, one

rat, and one possum trapped on

neighbouring properties.

Pupils from Our Lady Star of the Sea School got to practice their

netball skills with members of the Tactix team. Last Wednesday,

Sophia Fenwick, Charlotte Elley and Jess Prosser put the year

3 and 4 class, through their paces with lots of fun games and

netball drills. There was plenty of laughter and energy shown by

the excited children and the school wishes the Tactix all the best

for the remainder of the netball season.

The Cellist

by Daniel Silva

Master of international intrigue Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times bestselling

author, comes an explosive new thriller featuring art restorer and legendary spy

Gabriel Allon. The most beautiful music hides the deadliest secrets ...

Viktor Orlov had a longstanding appointment with death. Once Russia’s richest man,

he now resides in exile in London, where he is waging a crusade against the

kleptocrats who have seized control of the Kremlin. His mansion is

protected by armed bodyguards. Yet somehow, on a rainy summer

evening, in the midst of a global pandemic, Russia’s vengeful

president finally manages to cross Orlov’s name off his kill list.

Before him was the receiver from his landline telephone,

a half-drunk glass of red wine, and a stack of documents ...

The documents are contaminated with a deadly nerve agent.

The Metropolitan Police determine that they were delivered by

one of Orlov’s employees, a prominent investigative reporter.

And when the reporter vanishes hours after the killing, MI6

concludes she is a Moscow Center assassin who penetrated

the billionaire’s formidable defenses. But Gabriel Allon believes his

friends in British intelligence are dangerously mistaken. His search for the

truth will take him to Geneva, where a private intelligence service is plotting an act of

violence that will plunge an already divided America into chaos. Only Allon, with the

help of a brilliant young woman employed by the world’s dirtiest bank, can stop it....

Steve Hansen - The Legacy

by Gregor Paul

The making of a New Zealand coaching great. Between the years 2012 and 2019,

Sir Steve Hansen oversaw an era of such remarkable success that it would be almost

impossible to repeat. His 15-year career in the All Blacks coaching team is the

heaviest footprint in rugby history. Of the 210 tests he was involved with, his team

lost just 25 times. Of the 107 tests he served as head coach, Sir Steve accumulated

a record 4 World Rugby Coach of the Year awards and orchestrated 93 victories

- a winning percentage of 87 per cent, the highest of any All Blacks coach. Steve

Hansen: The Legacy delves into the highs and the lows that earned the New Zealand

rugby knight a place in the pantheon of world rugby coaching greats. Revealing and

perceptive, the book uncovers how Hansen dealt with the immeasurable pressure

of leading the world’s most famous rugby team; the tension created by being reappointed

specifically to win the Rugby World Cup; how he dealt with high-profile

athletes and an exodus of New Zealand’s all-time greats; the endless tug-of-war

between commercialism and high performance; the increasing influence of referees

on the game; the power battle between the northern and southern hemispheres; the

Achilles heel that contributed to the All Blacks’ 2019 Rugby World Cup loss; and

how, during his career, he learnt to understand his weaknesses and use them to his

advantage. Much more than a biography, in Steve Hansen: The Legacy, awardwinning

writer Gregor Paul tells the compelling story of the former policeman from

Mosgiel, his quest for world rugby dominance and his journey to coaching greatness.

Treasures

from the

past

THERE ARE some objects in

our collection that are intriguing

because of their mysterious

origins.

This little sampler book

contains a number of crochet

pieces, date and maker

unknown. It measures just

115mm long, 215mm wide and

35mm high.

Was this a sample book for a

local haberdashery? Or a proud

individual maker’s portfolio of

work?

‘In lace, crochet and tatting,

thread is worked to create

intricate patterns. These crafts

are commonly used to create

doilies, tablecloths, handkerchief

borders, clothing cuffs

and collars.

‘In England, Devonshire and

the East Midlands were major

centres of lacemaking and

migrants from these counties

would have continued to make

lace in New Zealand.

‘Making lace by hand was a

very skilled and time-consuming

task, and it was particularly

valuable for this reason. Crochet

and tatting were simpler crafts

and sometimes used as a

substitute for lace.’ (Te Ara)

In the late 19th and early

20th centuries, most girls (and

very rarely boys) were taught to

sew by their mothers or female

relatives, and it was also taught

in schools from the late 1870s.

Hand sewing, knitting and

other decorative crafts were

MYSTERY TAT: Crochet sample book with button closure and a number

of pieces not stitched into book, date unknown. PHOTO: Te Ūaka The

Lyttelton Museum collection

an essential accomplishment

for European women. Treadle

sewing machines became

available from the 1880s in New

Zealand, but would have been

financially out of the reach of

many.

The bar for crochet items was

set high:

‘Henry Coutts was one of four

colonial soldiers to receive a

woolen (sic) scarf crocheted by

Queen Victoria in recognition of

an act of gallantry.

‘At Koorn Spruit on March

31, 1900, Coutts risked his own

life to rescue a wounded noncommissioned

officer of the

Burmese Mounted Infantry.

‘Although the officer died after

being brought to the aid station,

Coutts was awarded one of the

Queen’s Scarves.

‘Coutts presented his scarf to

the New Zealand Government

in 1913. It was displayed in the

General Assembly Library for

many years before being gifted to

the National Army Museum in

the 1980s.’ (NZ History).

There was a decline in the

practice and valuing of domestic

crafts from the mid 19th

century, as many women

moved into a public sphere

of work away from domestic

environs.

However, recent decades have

seen a resurgence in appreciation

of these lost arts and a rise in

appreciation of all kinds

of handwork.

Event to

celebrate

church music

MORE THAN 600 pupils from

throughout the Christchurch

Catholic Diocese will converge

on the town hall on Friday

to participate in a day-long

celebration of church music.

Jubilate will include a lunchtime

Mass celebrated by Archbishop

Paul Martin, accompanied by a

massed choir, an 60min organ

recital at 5.15pm and then the

two-hour Jubilate, a celebration of

Catholic music, starting at 7pm.

All are free to the public.

Ken Joblin, the sacred music

adviser for the Catholic Diocese,

said that 25 schools would be

represented on the day and that

choirs were already practising for

the event.

“We are absolutely delighted

with the response from our

schools with representation from

the West Coast; South, Mid

and North Canterbury and also

Christchurch. It is the first time all

our Christchurch Catholic college

choirs are participating.

“For five years St Mary’s Pro Cathedral

was the home for Jubilate,

but with the addition of secondary

schools and our Archbishop’s

desire for families and the wider

community to attend, we felt the

newly-restored Christchurch Town

Hall was the perfect venue.”

The evening will be similar to

a last night of the proms with

fervent, full-on singing which will

include audience participation.

Corner

Electric cars now seem to be

here to stay, but will they eventually

be able to replace all those

internal combustion engines, or

will they stay a niche option?

This event will explore the history

of the electric car and how

we got where we are, and then

the speaker, Tom Rose, will address

some of the key questions

people have about the transition,

including, are electric cars ready

and up to the job? What about

the costs involved? Can the grid

handle the increased load? Have

we just replaced one environmental

problem with another

one? How does the situation in

New Zealand compare to other

Claim a rebate on MG electric vehicle

MY WIFE AND I arrived home

at 5pm after a normal day at

work, but from then on things

were far from normal.

The chicken went in the oven

for dinner and veges were being

prepared. I had a few tasks to

complete before plugging in the

electric evaluation car for an

overnight charge, but before I got

to that the house lights dimmed

and before we knew it the power

went off.

The emergency electrician was

called. On arrival, he explained

that a corroded wire from the

street had shorted and it would

be the following day before parts

could be sourced and electricity

restored.

We improvised as well as we

could for the very cold night

but it meant the MG ZS electric

car would have to go back to

the dealership running on

low charge. For someone who

gets range anxiety I found the

early morning commute rather

harrowing; however, I’m pleased

to report we made it.

Yes, the electric vehicle was

an MG, that nameplate having

links back to the company named

Morris Garages, established in

1924. MG has since defied the

odds and has survived amidst

takeovers, mergers and years

when production was barely

enough to stay buoyant, today

it is still a proud brand in the

automotive market.

MG is now under ownership of

the giant Shanghai Automotive

Industry Corporation, in China,

and that’s a good thing, it has

stable foundations and it has the

benefit of a vast manufacturing

enterprise. SAIC is a wellestablished

conglomerate with

long-term involvement with

Volkswagen, General Motors

and a host of heavy vehicle

manufacturers.

Add in the design work that

is still carried out in the United

Kingdom and it would appear

MG is here to stick around

for a lot longer yet. At a local

level it’s also heartening to see

a considerable number on our

roads, thanks to a new dealership

and showroom boosting the

brand’s image.

The manufacturer of MG

has also joined the global rush

towards satisfying demand for

EVs. Its trendy and popular ZS

sport utility vehicle is now even

more interesting with the electric

option appealing to the many

who are flocking to that part of

the market. As an aside, a hybrid

version of the MG HS SUV has

also just landed in New Zealand.

It’s timely to note as well, the

fully electric ZS at $48,990 easily

ON CHARGE: The ZS’ batteries can be powered from

domestic supply or charge station.

MG ZS: Fully electric or petrol power depending on your preference.

qualifies for the Government’s

recently introduced electric

vehicle rebate of $8625.

The ZS EV is powered by a

high output 44.5kWh lithium-ion

battery, and that is significant, it’s

a battery that will give you range,

according to the distributors up

to 263km between charges. In

normal EV fashion charging can

be done in two ways, but you will

need two different cables. One is

a type 2 to type 2 that would be

used at a DC rapid charging point

taking about 45min to charge

from low to 80 per cent. The

other is a three-pin cable that can

be plugged in from a domestic

supply, MG claims an estimated

seven hours to fully charge.

On the subject of figures, the

ZS EV has an electric motor that

is rated at 105kW with 353Nm

of torque, the latter is available

instantly, consequently, the

vehicle feels lively, power and

acceleration is vivid. According

to the manufacturers it will reach

100km/h from a standstill in

8.2sec, which, with its urge from

the line, is quite satisfying.

Not only does the ZS EV buyer

get the benefits of seamless

power, there is also plenty of

specification on offer. All the

necessary items we have come

to expect for comfort and

convenience are fitted, along with

a substantial amount of safety

features, something that SAIC has

been very pro-active with.

The ZS is a relatively new

• Price – MG ZS EV, $48,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4314mm; width, 1809mm;

height, 1644mm

• Configuration – Electrosynchronous

motor,

105kW, 353Nm, one-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.2sec

design both in the chassis and

through its styling. It is compact

at just over 4.3m, but it is

relatively tall, which provides a

roomy, spacious interior.

At city speeds the ZS EV

dawdles with the traffic without

taxing the driver, it is light

to operate and with dynamic

motor braking the driving feel

is very involving. The kinetic

energy system is adjustable so

that braking strength can be

moderated, although I preferred

the heavy setting, it’s almost

like you can drive and slow up

without actually using the brake

pedal proper. Of course, you do

need to do that, but the KERS

system is there to add braking

impetus.

On the highway the ZS EV is

quiet, no surprises there, and the

handling is predictable with good

information through the steering

as to how it is reacting to the road

surface.

Riding on 215/50 x 17in

comfort specification Michelin

tyres there is direct turn-in when

the corners arrive and there is

favourable response to steering

input.

On an inland run through to

Darfield and its surrounds, the

ZS pleased with its eager nature

and controlled feel. Driving

it is relaxing and somewhat

rewarding, especially if you are

of the belief that electric vehicles

are the way of the future and

the environment is your first

consideration.

However, the MG ZS is also

there for those who want an

affordable SUV, electric or petrol.

If you want the latter there are

two 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrolpowered

variants that list at a

tempting $22,990 and $27,490.

If you are one of the many new

car buyers who today are viewing

an electric vehicle as the preferred

choice, the MG ZS is a worthy

consideration, it is affordable

and being an SUV it fits with

the direction the many new car

buyers are steering to. It must be

said the evaluation car felt tight

and had a solid, secure feeling

along with a build quality that

presented no flaws.

I can see many other

manufacturers playing catch-up

now that electric vehicles are the

big talking point and demand

constantly outstrips supply.

However, I’ve been informed

MG is meeting the expectation

for ZS EV, although first choice

for colour options may be a little

more problematic.

We’re rolling out

COVID-19 vaccinations

to Aotearoa New Zealand

Everyone aged 60+ can book their vaccination now

New Zealanders aged 60+ can book now at BookMyVaccine.nz or call

0800 28 29 26. If you’re in one of our priority groups (Groups 1, 2 and 3)

and haven’t been vaccinated, don’t worry, you can still make your booking.

We’re rolling out Group 4 in age bands

Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand will be able to get the vaccine – it’s free and there’s enough vaccine for everyone.

With more than 2.5 million people aged under 65, to make the process flow smoothly, we’re breaking it down by age bands.

We’re starting with the oldest and working our way down to the youngest.

Important dates

28 July Everyone 60+ Can book now

11 August Everyone 55+ Bookings open

Bookings will open soon to the rest of Aotearoa in age bands,

from oldest to youngest. Remember, once you’re eligible to be

vaccinated, you can book at any time. There’s no cut off.

60 +

55 + 45 + 35 + 16 +

When it’s your time to book a vaccination

Step 1: Receiving an invitation

When you’re eligible, you’ll receive a letter inviting you to book

at BookMyVaccine.nz. We’ll follow up with an email and text.

Step 2: Make your booking

Once you’ve received your invitation, or when your age band is

open, go to BookMyVaccine.nz to book your appointments.

If you’re unable to book online, you can ring the COVID Vaccination

Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 (8am to 8pm, 7 days). We’ll make the

booking for you and answer any questions. Interpreters are available

if you need them.

You can expect to have your first vaccination six to eight weeks after

you make your booking. Depending on where and when you’d like to

be vaccinated, you might find an appointment earlier. You’ll need

to leave at least three weeks between your first and second doses.

Step 3: Get your vaccination

We’ll send a reminder the day before each appointment. It’s very

important to get two doses of the vaccine – this will give you the

best protection.

Other ways to get vaccinated

There are other ways to be vaccinated, including workplace

vaccinations and other vaccination events around the country.

In many remote rural communities, we will vaccinate all age groups

at the same time.

Many GPs are also providing COVID-19 vaccinations and are taking

bookings directly. To find out if your GP is offering this service,

visit healthpoint.co.nz/covid-19-vaccination

The stronger our immunity, the greater our possibilities.

Charlesworth Charmer!

33A Charlesworth Street , Woolston 3 bedrooms, 1 living, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garaging

Conveniently positioned, this tidy three-bedroom home will capture the eye of first-time buyers,

families and investors alike. Ten minutes drive will get you into the CBD or take a local nature walk

and linger over a pale ale or pizza at the cafes, bars or restaurants in Ferrymead. Live in it or let it out?

Rental investment potential or a fantastic first family home. Contemporary finishes and an everpopular

neutral colour scheme throughout will excite buyers looking for a ‘move in straight away’ feel.

Spacious open plan living and a large kitchen are just the ticket. The master bedroom at one end of

the house enjoys a sense of space with its own ensuite and WIR, while a tiled floor family bathroom

is shared between the household and features a shower over bath. A separate laundry also adds to

ease of everyday living. Whether you’re into walking, biking or water sports, this fantastic location, so

close to town and Ferrymead, is perfectly suited to active families. Prospective purchasers are urged

to act swiftly.

Hidden Potential with Incredible Views

213b Mt Pleasant Road, Mt Pleasant 3 bedrooms, 1 living, 1 bath, 1 car garaging

Elevated for spectacular views, superb sun exposure and complete privacy, this easy-care threebedroom

home on the upper slopes of Mount Pleasant is an excellent chance to establish a foothold

on the property ladder, or an equally enticing opportunity to add the property to your rental portfolio.

The floor plan incorporates two well-sized double bedrooms, plus a single or study, supported

by a simply appointed bathroom to ensure ample accommodation for couples, singles and small

families. A mix of vaulted and conventional ceilings creates zones with a sense of space and cosiness,

respectively. The light-filled living zone, kept comfortable thanks to a heat pump, flows from the

open-plan kitchen and connects with a west-facing sun deck with steps down to a spacious, private

lawn and garden area. With entry-level opportunities a rarity in this location, this property will ignite

strong interest from both investors and homebuyers looking for an affordable opportunity in an

unsurpassed location. Interest will be high and your earliest inspection is encouraged.
