Increase in call-outs prompt<br />

bid for St John volunteers<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

AN INCREASE in St John<br />

emergency call-outs on the<br />

Akaroa side of the peninsula has<br />

led to a call for more volunteers.<br />

Said St John Banks Peninsula<br />

Area committee member Ian<br />

Moir: “There has been a growth in<br />

call-outs over the<br />

past years and the<br />

majority of these<br />

are calls from<br />

locals, not cruise<br />

ship passengers.”<br />

From July 2020<br />

Ian Moir<br />

to June <strong>2021</strong>, the<br />

St John Akaroa<br />

team attended 62<br />

incidents.<br />

St John is also looking for a new<br />

base in Akaroa that Moir hopes<br />

will attract the volunteers it needs.<br />

The ambulance is currently<br />

based at the police station<br />

with the operational volunteers<br />

sharing the police office headquarters.<br />

Moir said he was not sure<br />

why they were seeing increased<br />

call-outs but wondered if it was<br />

potentially because of the ageing<br />

population in the area, alongside<br />

there being more construction<br />

sites.<br />

PARTYING ON the coastal<br />

pathway is about to come to an<br />

end. Well, maybe.<br />

We report (page 3) on the<br />

long-running saga of functions<br />

at the Sumner surf club spilling<br />

onto the coastal pathway.<br />

To be fair to the surf club,<br />

these are usually private functions<br />

held by people who have<br />

hired the club out.<br />

The city council now wants<br />

the club to ensure those hiring<br />

out the facility know they can’t<br />

take their celebrations onto the<br />

pathway.<br />

Easier said than done, I<br />

suspect.<br />

On another note, lots of<br />

reader feedback (page 11) on<br />

the next step towards a liquor<br />

licence being able to be granted<br />

for whatever is built at the<br />

former Godley House site.<br />

Get on with it, I say.<br />

Pathway party issues addressed<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

Mark<br />

Lodder<br />

THE SUMNER Surf Lifesaving<br />

Club says it will do its best to<br />

stop functions spilling out onto<br />

the Coastal Pathway.<br />

It comes after months of discussions<br />

between the club, the<br />

Christchurch Coastal Pathway<br />

Group and the city council due<br />

to ongoing concerns raised of<br />

people at functions obstructing<br />

the pathway.<br />

If club members and guests<br />

want to use the outdoor area<br />

for events outside of the club’s<br />

leased boundary, they must now<br />

ensure the Coastal Pathway<br />

remains clear and open at all<br />

times.<br />

Surf lifesaving<br />

club chairman<br />

Mark Lodder<br />

said the club<br />

completely<br />

appreciates the<br />

outcome and<br />

will “undertake<br />

its best<br />

endeavours to<br />

ensure this is not<br />

breached.”<br />

“As a club, we are very<br />

committed to our community<br />

and especially appreciate the<br />

community for hiring out our<br />

venue as it is a valuable source of<br />

club funds,” he said.<br />

“However, we are very<br />

particular about how we hire<br />

out the venue and we will make<br />

sure it is clear to people using<br />

it there are strict rules and<br />

guidelines. The Coastal Pathway<br />

is the Coastal Pathway. It is not<br />

an extension of the club hire<br />

facility.”<br />

Concerns were raised with<br />

the club by the city council<br />

and the pathway group, resulting<br />

in a trial over the 2020/21<br />

summer period from November<br />

to April allowing for temporary<br />

closures of the pathway for outside<br />

events such as weddings.<br />

However, the Coastal<br />

Pathway was blocked for longer<br />

periods than was originally<br />

agreed.<br />

Coastal Pathway Group<br />

chairman Hanno Sanders<br />

presented a deputation to the<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board in February<br />

to discuss the continued<br />

concerns.<br />

In response, the community<br />

board requested the city<br />

council work with the interested<br />

A memorandum on the matter<br />

was provided to the community<br />

board on <strong>August</strong> 2.<br />

Community board member<br />

Sara Templeton acknowledged<br />

the club facility’s charm in “its<br />

ability to spill out into the coastal<br />

environment.”<br />

“It is important, however,<br />

that the Coastal Pathway isn’t<br />

blocked for users, especially in<br />

this section that has access to the<br />

beach and a really high amenity<br />

for everyone,” she said.<br />

Call for land to set up<br />

ambulance base<br />

• From page 1<br />

The age group of 65 plus sees<br />

the highest amount of call-outs,<br />

with 40 per cent of call-outs<br />

related to breathing problems and<br />

25 per cent of call-outs related to<br />

chest pains.<br />

Twelve per cent of the call-outs<br />

are traffic incident related.<br />

“We also need more volunteers<br />

on the team,” said Moir.<br />

He explained there was<br />

currently a small, dedicated team,<br />

made up of eight operational<br />

volunteers, giving their<br />

personal time in support of the<br />

community.<br />

“We think if St John had a<br />

more prominent presence, it<br />

would make it easier to recruit<br />

volunteers,” said Moir.<br />

“There would be a base and<br />

home that is theirs.”<br />

With a new station, the<br />

team would be able to build<br />

an ambulance bay, provide<br />

a meeting and storage area,<br />

alongside a kitchenette and<br />

bathroom for the volunteers.<br />

Earlier this month, Moir,<br />

St John Banks Peninsula area<br />

committee chairman Brent<br />

Stanaway, and St John territory<br />

manager Ian Rex talked to the<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board about their quest to find a<br />

site for a new station.<br />

At the meeting, the St John<br />

team discussed potential city<br />

council-owned land they could<br />

use.<br />

This includes a site off Rue<br />

Balguerie, a piece of land on the<br />

hill rise between Takamatua<br />

and Akaroa next to the western<br />

side of Old Coach Rd, and the<br />

preferred site of the parking area<br />

near the Akaroa tennis/netball<br />

courts and croquet green.<br />

St John is also asking the<br />

community for available land.<br />

“Within the township would be<br />

quite good,” said Moir.<br />

“That’s why the parking area<br />

would work well as we can service<br />

Akaroa but also get out of town<br />

quite quickly too.”<br />

Moir said it would be a fantastic<br />

result if someone gifted a suitable<br />

area of land to St John as they are<br />

hoping for a long-term solution.<br />

City council head of facilities,<br />

property and planning Bruce<br />

Rendall said the city council<br />

was currently collaborating<br />

with St John in relation to its<br />

search for a suitable ambulance<br />

station site.<br />

“Discussions between St<br />

John and council and site<br />

investigations are at a very early<br />

stage,” he said.<br />

•If you have any land St<br />

John could potentially use<br />

for a new station in Akaroa,<br />

Lyttelton since<br />

it was listed last<br />

“It’s surprising how many<br />

people have inquired,” she said.<br />

“It’s such a unique property,<br />

it’s definitely not for everyone.”<br />

Realestate.co.nz listed its<br />

capital value as $999,000 in<br />

With the first open home this<br />

Saturday, Situe expects “quite a<br />

few” people to stop by, with 13<br />

groups already registered for a<br />

viewing.<br />

She said most people interested<br />

in Cressy House were keen to<br />

restore it.<br />

“People love the property and<br />

would like to restore it to how it<br />

was.”<br />

The property – about 600m2<br />

with 22 bedrooms and 11<br />

FOR SALE: Cressy House in Lyttelton was listed last week.<br />

bathrooms – overlooks<br />

the Lyttelton harbour.<br />

It is currently rented out on a<br />

room-by-room basis.<br />

The property was bought by<br />

its present owner for $375,000 in<br />

2012.<br />

Originally built as a caretaker<br />

1906 Cressy House was owned<br />

by the Ashburton and<br />

Four years later, the house<br />

closure, it was rented out as a<br />

retirement home.<br />

New dedication for VC winner’s plot<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

THE RESTORED family plot<br />

of Lincoln-born Sergeant Henry<br />

Nicholas, Canterbury’s first<br />

Victoria Cross recipient, will be<br />

rededicated on the anniversary<br />

of his death with co-ordinated<br />

ceremonies in Christchurch and<br />

France.<br />

Nicholas, who was awarded<br />

the highest military award for<br />

valour following an attack on<br />

a German position in Belgium<br />

in 1917, will be remembered on<br />

October 23 at his family grave in<br />

Bromley cemetery.<br />

When the same day dawns in<br />

Europe, flowers will be laid at<br />

his resting place in Vertigneul<br />

churchyard in northern France.<br />

Nicholas, who was killed three<br />

weeks before the armistice on<br />

November 11, 19<strong>18</strong>, was initially<br />

buried in Beaudiginies but later<br />

the 27-year-old’s remains were<br />

exhumed and reinterred among<br />

other war graves.<br />

Canterbury district Returned<br />

and Services Association<br />

president Stan Hansen said the<br />

ceremonies would be a fitting<br />

conclusion to a restoration project<br />

inspired by English Korea<br />

War veteran Ken Wright.<br />

The RSA and New Zealand<br />

Remembrance Army – a war<br />

grave-restoring charity – mobilised<br />

after Wright noticed the<br />

earthquake-damaged family<br />

plot while walking through the<br />

cemetery last November.<br />

Restoration work to right the<br />

toppled headstone and repaint<br />

lettering was carried out last<br />

month.<br />

A member of the New Zealand<br />

Infantry Canterbury Regiment,<br />

Nicholas was presented with his<br />

VC by King George V at Buckingham<br />

Palace in July, 19<strong>18</strong>.<br />

He subsequently returned to<br />

France, where he was awarded<br />

FALLEN HERO: The funeral of Canterbury’s first Victoria<br />

Cross recipient, Sergeant Henry Nicholas, after he was killed<br />

in France in 19<strong>18</strong>. A small ceremony will be held at his<br />

resting place following the rededication of his family plot in<br />

Bromley. ​<br />

the Military Medal before being<br />

killed in action.<br />

“It’s a sad story because he was<br />

killed three weeks before the war<br />

ended. How sad is that? He’d<br />

been taken off the front lines and<br />

he was actually on guard duties.<br />

He was guarding a bridge, there<br />

was a German thrust and he was<br />

taken out,” Hansen said.<br />

The rededication also coincides<br />

with the New Zealand Infantry’s<br />

Corps Day, selected because<br />

October 23 marks the start of the<br />

second Battle of El Alamein in<br />

Egypt in 1942.<br />

A military presence is planned<br />

at Bromley, while the RSA is<br />

negotiating with Canterbury<br />

Museum to have Nicholas’<br />

VC and Military Medal at the<br />

ceremony.<br />

His mother Hannah<br />

bequeathed the medals to the<br />

museum after her death in 1932.<br />

Hansen said the plans for the<br />

French ceremony were in the<br />

formative stages but he was confident<br />

the New Zealand embassy<br />

could provide representation.<br />

“It’s a fitting tribute to<br />

someone who we haven’t<br />

forgotten and someone whose<br />

heroic deeds forged a way for<br />

New Zealand to be the country it<br />

is,” Hansen said.<br />

National Identity<br />

Confessions of an outsider by Simon Bridges<br />

An open, honest and at times intensely personal memoir about race, fatherhood,<br />

marriage, masculinity, fitting in, and the things that shape our national character.<br />

Simon Bridges grew up as the son of a working-class Baptist preacher in Te<br />

Atatu, as the youngest of six children. In many ways he had a typical Kiwi<br />

upbringing, at a time when having little didn’t seem to matter much. Yet<br />

for Bridges, his was the life of an outsider: experiencing otherness for<br />

being Maori, and yet an otherness from other Maori; a Westie with<br />

a thick accent, trying to break into the upper reaches of society;<br />

distanced from his father, an ageing man in his own world. As<br />

a young politician, Bridges soon came to realise he was an<br />

introvert in an extrovert’s world, and a male leader who has<br />

never identified with New Zealand’s idealised version of the<br />

strong, laconic, rugby-loving man.<br />

In National Identity, Bridges offers an attempt to question himself<br />

and the country he loves. Politics, crime, kai, music, nature: these<br />

are the stuff of a life. Through candid and self-aware reflections, he<br />

points out that politicians have become less robust, and that people<br />

don’t participate as much anymore - eroding our institutions and national life.<br />

He speaks his mind on an education system in crisis, the decline of Christianity,<br />

and how being the smallest, most isolated developed country in the world<br />

explains why we are how we are.<br />

Authentic, brilliant, humorous and poignant, National Identity is a must-read<br />

New Zealand memoir.<br />

The Girl Behind The Wall<br />

by Mandy Robotham<br />

From the USA Today and internationally bestselling WWII novelist of The German<br />

Midwife, The Secret Messenger and The Berlin Girl comes a story set at the dawn<br />

of the Cold War in Berlin. A city divided. When the Berlin Wall goes up, Karin is on<br />

the wrong side of the city. Overnight, she’s trapped under Soviet rule in unforgiving<br />

East Berlin and separated from her twin sister, Jutta. Two sisters torn apart.<br />

Karin and Jutta lead parallel lives for years, cut off by the Wall. But Karin finds<br />

one reason to keep going: Otto, the man who gives her hope, even amidst the<br />

brutal East German regime.<br />

One impossible choice…<br />

When Jutta finds a hidden way through the wall, the twins are reunited. But the<br />

Stasi have eyes everywhere, and soon Karin is faced with a terrible decision: to<br />

flee to the West and be with her sister, or sacrifice it all to follow her heart?<br />

A timely reminder that, even in darkness, love will always guide you home, this<br />

gripping and emotional tale is perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz by<br />

Heather Morris and The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane.<br />

store Ballantynes is again running<br />

its Bring it to the Boardroom<br />

competition, offering<br />

budding designers and entrepreneurs<br />

the opportunity to submit<br />

promotional package.<br />

The competition was launched<br />

in 2016, to run every second<br />

year. However, due to Covid, last<br />

year’s competition was postponed<br />

until <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

“This is our third time doing<br />

Bring it to the Boardroom<br />

this back on our calendar. For<br />

us, this is about giving back to<br />

Maria O’Halloran.<br />

“We want to open up an<br />

budding designers and creators<br />

from across the country to<br />

showcase their work and along<br />

the way, gain an insight into the<br />

whole retail process. We’re so<br />

excited to see what unfolds.”<br />

Marketing manager Shelley<br />

Gayford says the previous<br />

competitions have seen a diverse<br />

range of products being put<br />

items, fashion accessories and<br />

pantry items.<br />

Winners of the 2016 edition of<br />

Lianne de Jong and Lee Scheepers<br />

from Marlee and Jo, who<br />

presented a range of children’s<br />

“We started selling the Marlee<br />

and Jo product just after they<br />

won the Ballantynes Bring it to<br />

the Boardroom competition back<br />

in 2016,” Ms O’Halloran says.<br />

“To this day, their product<br />

continues to be very popular<br />

with our customers – they offer<br />

a product with a real point of<br />

difference and something no<br />

other supplier offers in our store.<br />

It is great to support local and we<br />

have loved watching, and being a<br />

part of, Lee and Lianne’s successful<br />

journey.“<br />

Treasures from<br />

the past<br />

DEMOLISHED: The former Godley House was a popular meeting place.<br />

Readers respond to<br />

last week’s article that<br />

licensed premises maybe<br />

able to return to the<br />

former Godley House site<br />

in Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

The Godley House site should be<br />

able to have a licensed activity<br />

there.<br />

It will bring the community<br />

together on this historic site, it<br />

will encourage visitors to come<br />

to Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>, therefore<br />

increasing visitation to Stoddard<br />

[Cottage] and use of the new<br />

supermarket, and increasing<br />

the activity and vibrancy of our<br />

beautiful Diamond Habour. It<br />

will also increase the visitors on<br />

the ferry, which will be excellent.<br />

Hopefully there will be a<br />

building there architecturally<br />

designed to enhance the beauty<br />

of the place and honour the<br />

history that was lost in the<br />

earthquake.<br />

–Thomas Proctor<br />

I absolutely think there should<br />

be a licensed venue in place of<br />

Godley House. We have lived in<br />

the bays area for over 20 years<br />

and the best place to meet the<br />

community was always Godley<br />

House.<br />

There were always many<br />

visitors that came across on the<br />

ferry every weekend who enjoyed<br />

the scenery and hospitality<br />

as much as the locals. We made<br />

many of our long-term friends<br />

from meeting in this lovely<br />

space, which also showcased<br />

the area when it was used as a<br />

wedding venue as well.<br />

–Karen Boswell<br />

There is no question whether<br />

it should be a licensed premises<br />

in the venue-to-be on the old<br />

Godley House site. It absolutely<br />

must be licensed.<br />

–Ross Denton<br />

My wife and I moved to<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> after visiting<br />

on the ferry. A lovely journey, a<br />

gentle walk up through the trees,<br />

and then a beer and food outside<br />

Godley House while watching<br />

the ships and Lyttelton activity.<br />

Now a ferry load of tourists<br />

can sit or queue by the road,<br />

without any views, while waiting<br />

for their food.<br />

What we have now is very<br />

much a cafe in its size, capacity,<br />

and location. While it tries its<br />

hardest to accommodate, it is<br />

what it is. When we had two<br />

venues both were often full . . .<br />

there is plenty of custom to go<br />

around (and more).<br />

–Mark Simon<br />

Since the earthquakes put paid<br />

to Godley House the community<br />

has become very disjointed. After<br />

the quakes we had nowhere<br />

to meet and heal as a community.<br />

It was only because the rugby<br />

club stepped in that we actually<br />

started to come together again<br />

and there were a few that fell by<br />

the wayside.<br />

We have already started to<br />

show that the community can<br />

start healing with the ‘Live at the<br />

Point’ music that happens for a<br />

few months at the beginning of<br />

the year, but there is nowhere<br />

else big enough for that to<br />

continue throughout the year<br />

and nowhere else [where] we as<br />

a community can come together<br />

and enjoy each other’s company<br />

over a drink to heal.<br />

Since we lost the Dark Star<br />

we have only one very small<br />

licensed bar that is very nice and<br />

does some of the task admirably,<br />

although it is too small to allow<br />

for music and larger gatherings.<br />

I hope that enough of us can<br />

get together to show the council<br />

We want to hear your views<br />

that Godley House needs to be<br />

replaced to allow us all to enjoy<br />

it in it’s full capacity.<br />

–Jules Holdstock<br />

Please consider this amazing<br />

venue spot and how it was for<br />

our community before and [how<br />

we were] promised something all<br />

those years ago and still nothing.<br />

This place is a haven for<br />

weekend gatherings, for people<br />

to leave the madhouse of<br />

Christchurch, [for a] music<br />

venue with licenced venue like it<br />

was before.<br />

–Paru Clarke<br />

We would like to support a licensed<br />

venue for Godley House.<br />

My husband and I are residents<br />

of Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> and would<br />

like to have a relaxing venue<br />

with seating on the grass. It<br />

would be patronised more (particularly<br />

by us) if it was licenced.<br />

–Claire Taylor<br />

We are new holiday residents to<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> and we love<br />

the idea of a pub or bar in the<br />

Godley Reserve area. It’s a short<br />

and beautiful ferry ride over from<br />

Lyttelton and then people need<br />

somewhere easy to walk after that<br />

hill climb! The cafe in that vicinity<br />

is not particularly good and<br />

doesn’t cope well with crowds.<br />

And the new block of shops near<br />

the 4 Square is unattractive with<br />

no view and is too far away. We<br />

hope you can continue to raise the<br />

profile of this story to encourage<br />

conversation.<br />

REFIT: The Napier dredge Whakarire in dry dock (above) and<br />

getting a new boiler fitted, 1950-2000.<br />

PHOTOS: Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum online collection<br />

LYTTELTON’S dry dock (or<br />

graving dock) has been an<br />

essential backbone to New<br />

Zealand shipping since it opened<br />

with great ceremony in January<br />

<strong>18</strong>83.<br />

Owned by the Lyttelton Port<br />

Company, it is a registered<br />

Category 1 historic place and is<br />

still a working site. You may have<br />

seen the steam tug Lyttelton in<br />

its steady embrace recently for its<br />

annual survey.<br />

“The dock was used to repair<br />

and maintain Scott’s Discovery<br />

and Terra Nova in the early<br />

years of this century, and as such<br />

serves as a reminder of Lyttelton’s<br />

significant link with Antarctica<br />

from the earliest days of polar<br />

exploration. Although many<br />

modern ships are too large to fit<br />

into the graving dock today, it<br />

continues to serve an important<br />

function within the port.”<br />

(Heritage New Zealand)<br />

Another vessel to use the<br />

dry dock in the late 1950s was<br />

the twin-screw steam dredge<br />

Whakarire. Built in Scotland<br />

in 1903, the dredge initially<br />

worked on land reclamation in<br />

Wellington, and then worked<br />

for many years in Napier to<br />

deepen that harbour. It was<br />

commissioned by the Royal<br />

New Zealand Navy as a boom<br />

defence vessel in Auckland<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> for two years during<br />

World War 2.<br />

The Whakarire had major refits<br />

in Lyttelton in 1958 and 1960. In<br />

these images from the late 1950s,<br />

a new boiler for the dredge was<br />

unloaded and then craned into<br />

place in the vessel in dry dock.<br />

The Whakarire was finally<br />

retired in 1973, although the<br />

Auckland <strong>Harbour</strong> Board saved<br />

the driving wheels, which are still<br />

on display at Wynyard Wharf<br />

in Auckland.

Chris Barclay<br />

You were at Kaiapoi High<br />

School when you decided to<br />

reach for the stars, do you still<br />

have your first telescope?<br />

I didn’t have a telescope but I<br />

did a lot of reading about beyond<br />

just the stars we can see, this<br />

whole idea of the universe and<br />

cosmology. It was good growing<br />

up in the country and actually<br />

being able to see stars and the<br />

Milky Way. I wanted to be an<br />

astronaut when I was younger,<br />

around the fifth form. It was<br />

the exploration, discovering<br />

and frontiers (that appealed). I<br />

thought about joining the air<br />

force, that’s where you go to be<br />

an astronaut. Then I realised<br />

astronauts didn’t do the actual<br />

discovering and they are kind<br />

of limited to the solar system. I<br />

wanted to go beyond our solar<br />

system into galaxies and the<br />

universe.<br />

Did you have a teachers that<br />

navigated you to this career<br />

path?<br />

My father (Jim) was my maths<br />

teacher and I had another maths<br />

teacher – Graham Moore. They<br />

gave me the confidence to do<br />

anything mathematical. Physics<br />

and chemistry rely on logic<br />

and confidence. They built the<br />

foundation I needed.<br />

After the old 7th form it was<br />

straight to the lecture halls at<br />

Canterbury University wasn’t<br />

it?<br />

I enrolled in an astronomy<br />

degree. I was interested that<br />

people were trying to figure out<br />

how things worked with the<br />

universe. I thought I’d take it as<br />

far as I could.<br />

Mission accomplished then.<br />

You were made a Professor of<br />

Physics last year November.<br />

Your students can’t all be<br />

experts in Astroparticle<br />

physics and cosmology so<br />

does mastering this branch of<br />

science set you up for success in<br />

other spheres?<br />

I was doing a PHd (in<br />

theoretical/particle physics) at<br />

Oxford and three or four of the<br />

students I was with went into<br />

investment banking because our<br />

modelling skills could be applied<br />

to financial markets, derivatives<br />

or whatever. They could (make<br />

decisions) very quickly on the<br />

floor if necessary. Professor<br />

Shaun Hendy is the Covid-19<br />

modeller shaping New Zealand’s<br />

SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH: Award-winning theoretical physicist Jenni Adams with a<br />

sensor once used in the multi-national IceCube research project in Antarctica.<br />

response, he’s a physicist.<br />

Modelling how a virus infects<br />

populations is really similar do<br />

the sorts of modelling we do.<br />

You were awarded a Rhodes<br />

Scholarship which took you to<br />

Oxford University from 1992<br />

to the end of 1995. How was life<br />

in Magdalen College, where the<br />

alumni includes Oscar Wilde,<br />

Dudley Moore, and King<br />

Edward VIII?<br />

The theoretical physics<br />

department was a converted<br />

terrace house, we had the lounge<br />

room. There were six of us.<br />

We were from Russia, Canada,<br />

Australia and there were a<br />

couple of Brits. To be honest,<br />

I think we give more support<br />

to our graduate students.<br />

Academics there are often very<br />

busy, and they kind of expect<br />

their students to be good and<br />

be able to look after themselves.<br />

If you aren’t you really struggle<br />

there but I’d always encourage<br />

students to try and get to Oxford.<br />

You meet the people from other<br />

countries and have the access to<br />

speakers that come through. We<br />

had Nelson Mandela talk there<br />

once.<br />

Did you ever investigate how<br />

the laws of physics applied to<br />

the Boat Race with Cambridge?<br />

I actually rowed for Magdalen.<br />

Almost everyone is expected<br />

to have a go at rowing. All the<br />

colleges have boat sheds that any<br />

club here would envy. I knew<br />

a bit about rowing, I’d been a<br />

coxswain for school and club<br />

crews on Kerrs Reach.<br />

So you obviously kept an eye<br />

on the rowing in Tokyo, and the<br />

Black Sticks<br />

I play hockey for Hinemoa<br />

Kaiapoi, I started when I was<br />

seven. I’ve played for a midweek<br />

open team for about 10 years.<br />

It’s great, it’s the people I went<br />

to school with. I also coach my<br />

youngest daughter’s school and<br />

club team.<br />

You did some post-doc (PHd)<br />

research on cosmology at the<br />

University of Uppsala north of<br />

Stockholm, which dovetailed<br />

with your prime sporting<br />

passion, what they call ‘cunning<br />

running’<br />

I love orienteering (running<br />

point to point using a map and<br />

compass). Once I finished my<br />

PHd I went to Sweden (from<br />

POLAR DISCOVERY: The IceCube observatory at the South<br />

Pole in Antarctica is the focal point of a decade-long<br />

project to unearth the mysteries of the universe.<br />

1996 to mid-1998). You don’t<br />

play hockey in Sweden unless<br />

you can skate but it’s mecca for<br />

orienteering. There’s beautiful<br />

forests there that are very<br />

runnable, it’s perfect orienteering<br />

terrain.<br />

I’m no astronomy expert<br />

but I’ve heard of the Northern<br />

Lights. No doubt you saw them<br />

in Sweden?<br />

I have seen Aurora. That’s<br />

kind of related to what I study<br />

because it’s cosmic rays. They are<br />

high energy particles. The sun<br />

produces high energy particles<br />

and they’re channelled in by the<br />

magnetic fields near the (North<br />

and South) poles. The glow you<br />

see is them interacting in our<br />

atmosphere.<br />

During your time in<br />

Scandinavia you were offered<br />

an opportunity to return home<br />

and lecture at what was then<br />

the University of Canterbury’s<br />

Department of Physics and<br />

Astronomy (now the School of<br />

Physical Sciences).<br />

I would have liked to have<br />

stayed longer in Sweden but<br />

academic jobs are hard to get. I<br />

wasn’t saying no to it.<br />

What was it like lecturing<br />

engineering students – they must<br />

do physics – when you started<br />

out. Their shenanigans might not<br />

rival Otago during orientation<br />

week, but that student body does<br />

have a reputation.<br />

I was 28 when I started<br />

lecturing and many of the<br />

students were 19-20 so I wasn’t<br />

that much older than them. I<br />

taught first-year physics which is<br />

basically engineering students.<br />

There were predominately male<br />

classes of 300-400 . . . if they<br />

turned up. They could be a bit<br />

slack, or hungover. I was telling<br />

someone the other day, they’d<br />

do these lecturer evaluations<br />

and they’d write: ‘Wear shorter<br />

skirts’. But I held my own. It<br />

didn’t stop me going out there<br />

and lecturing, I didn’t cry about<br />

it but I was just like: ‘Those rude<br />

%@*#!’ There were a few swear<br />

words. Thankfully there are<br />

more women in there nowadays.<br />

You were the first female<br />

winner of the Dan Walls Medal<br />

last month. It’s a New Zealand<br />

Institute of Physics accolade<br />

honouring the influential<br />

New Zealand physicist who<br />

died of cancer in 1999. It was<br />

introduced in 2008 when you<br />

were president of the NZIP, so<br />

have you figuratively broken the<br />

glass ceiling?<br />

When I accepted the award<br />

people asked me about being a<br />

woman in physics. I have really<br />

supportive colleagues. One of<br />

the guys wrote the nomination<br />

for me. He knew I wasn’t going<br />

to make the time to do it. When<br />

I’d bring my little daughter<br />

in and be breastfeeding in my<br />

office there was no ‘tut tutting’. I<br />

never thought I’d ever get it (the<br />

medal). The idea was to celebrate<br />

physics down in New Zealand<br />

because there is this sort of<br />

‘overseas expert’ mentality. We’ll<br />

ask the overseas expert whereas<br />

we’re doing equally good work as<br />

the overseas expert.<br />

What are you teaching now,<br />

in the aptly named Ernest<br />

Rutherford Building?<br />

Right now I’m doing the<br />

Special Relativity course. It’s a<br />

great subject to teach because<br />

they really want to get their head<br />

around time and distance being<br />

relative, so they do ask a lot of<br />

questions.<br />

Unravelling the mysteries of the universe<br />

• From page 13<br />

Perusing your resume, you<br />

obviously have a particular<br />

interest in Astroparticle<br />

physics. Which is?<br />

It involves research at the<br />

interface of astronomy and<br />

particle physics. It is a synergy<br />

which operates in both directions<br />

– particle physics is applied to<br />

better understand astrophysical<br />

objects as well as using the<br />

universe as a laboratory for highenergy<br />

physics.<br />

You’ve spent decades studying<br />

Astroparticle physics, the<br />

cosmos, black holes. Where has<br />

that work been put to good use<br />

in our mundane, everyday lives?<br />

You can’t have any kinds of<br />

music playing without lasers,<br />

there’s lasers in medical physics<br />

. . . lasers scan groceries at your<br />

supermarket<br />

checkout.<br />

They’re<br />

everywhere<br />

and they were<br />

a quantum<br />

phenomena<br />

that someone<br />

Albert<br />

Einstein<br />

(American<br />

physicist<br />

Charles<br />

H Townes) was trying to<br />

understand. If you limit yourself<br />

you never make those huge<br />

jumps. The understandings<br />

Einstein brought meant we can<br />

have GPS. You shouldn’t be<br />

limited to the phenomenon you<br />

understand.<br />

You meet someone for the<br />

first time in a social setting.<br />

What’s the reaction when<br />

you say: ‘Oh, I’m a professor<br />

specialising in Astroparticle<br />

physics?<br />

They’d usually say: ‘Oh, I<br />

wasn’t very good at maths’ and<br />

that was the end of it. So I used<br />

to say I was a teacher, then after<br />

a while I thought I’d just bite<br />

the bullet. If you say astronomy<br />

people are usually more<br />

interested.<br />

Apparently you can drop<br />

‘neutrinos’ into casual<br />

conversation and eyes don’t<br />

necessarily glaze over?<br />

You hear about how Americans<br />

are ignorant so travelling there<br />

you’d think they have no idea<br />

if I say: ‘I’ve been studying<br />

neutrinos’. But sometimes they’ll<br />

say: ‘Yeah, I’ve read about them,<br />

the solar neutrino problem’.<br />

These are people you meet in<br />

a hostel, they’re not physicists.<br />

In New Zealand that just won’t<br />

happen.<br />

So, neutrinos, bring us up to<br />

speed then.<br />

A neutrino is a particle, it’s<br />

one of the so-called fundamental<br />

particles. Neutrinos are members<br />

of the most famous fundamental<br />

particle, the electron. They’re the<br />

most abundant massive particle<br />

in the universe, there are about<br />

15 million neutrinos from the Big<br />

Bang in the average room. They<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

could be the reason that matter<br />

exists in the universe. They were<br />

discovered in 1956 and tricky to<br />

study.<br />

Let’s imagine we’re back<br />

in 3rd form and someone has<br />

their hand up: ‘Miss, why do<br />

I need to know about<br />

neutrinos?’<br />

You can live your life perfectly<br />

well without knowing about<br />

neutrinos. Why I want to know<br />

about neutrinos is so I can<br />

study the high energy objects<br />

in the universe. By studying<br />

those maybe we’ll learn some<br />

new physics that might well<br />

mean your life is completely<br />

different than it was. We’re<br />

not researching so we’ll make<br />

something that’ll grow your<br />

hair back or whatever. It hasn’t<br />

got a use like that, or a medical<br />

use but it is going to improve<br />

our understanding of some<br />

phenomena out in the universe.<br />

Neutrinos are the focus of<br />

a US-led project based at the<br />

Amundsen-Scott South Pole<br />

Station. For most of it’s the<br />

stage name of rapper O’Shea<br />

Jackson Sr. What is actually<br />

going down in Antarctica?<br />

IceCube is an observatory<br />

dedicated to finding neutrinos<br />

with a 1km telescope under the<br />

ice. The neutrinos we collect<br />

are like fingerprints that help<br />

us understand the objects and<br />

phenomena where the neutrinos<br />

are produced. IceCube gives us<br />

new ways to study the mysteries of<br />

our universe, it is likely to uncover<br />

or lead to the discovery of things<br />

we could have anticipated.<br />

Your work on IceCube,<br />

alongside experts among 53<br />

institutions from 12 countries<br />

formed the bedrock of your<br />

award didn’t it?<br />

It was quite nice to be<br />

acknowledged because<br />

sometimes people in<br />

collaborations don’t get<br />

acknowledged as individuals.<br />

When you close your eyes<br />

do you see stars? How do you<br />

switch off?<br />

I run most nights because it<br />

helps me sleep better. We live<br />

near the hills (in Beckenham) so<br />

I run up the Bowenvale Valley<br />

track.<br />

Serious question – Star Wars<br />

or Star Trek?<br />

Probably Star Trek, it was more<br />

exploration based. I didn’t like<br />

the fighting stuff in Star Wars.<br />

Has The Big Bang Theory<br />

sitcom boosted the image of your<br />

average theoretical physicist?<br />

I think it’s funny, I think<br />

Sheldon makes physics a little bit<br />

cool doesn’t he? It makes it cool<br />

to be geeky.<br />

Thanks for bringing up the<br />

‘nerdy’ stereotype. It is an<br />

occupational hazard for the<br />

scientific community isn’t it?<br />

Definitely they’re known as<br />

geeky but I feel it’s a bit more<br />

accepted these days. I always say<br />

to my (eldest) daughter Kaia:<br />

‘Celebrate your geekiness.’ By<br />

the time you get to university it’s<br />

much easier. The kids walking<br />

around here are much less into<br />

that ‘popular kids’ mode you<br />

get at school where they’ve got<br />

their hair right and all that. They<br />

look much freer and able to be<br />

themselves here.<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> <strong>18</strong> <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News 21<br />

New identity looms for Kia Carnival<br />

IN THE YEARS I’ve been writing<br />

about automobiles, only on<br />

very rare occasions has a badge<br />

changed. Most car makers are<br />

very keen to keep their brand<br />

identity intact and protect their<br />

image even if the design is many<br />

years old.<br />

It came as some surprise then<br />

that Kia is in the process of<br />

changing its logo, the new design<br />

is more stylised and abstract<br />

than before and is certainly a<br />

departure from the original<br />

and it is now a genuine point of<br />

difference.<br />

So, take a good look, is this<br />

Carnival the last Kia I drive with<br />

the old badge? I don’t know,<br />

but what I do know is that even<br />

though it is about to get a new<br />

point of identity, it still shares<br />

the concept that it has made it a<br />

people mover of choice for many<br />

families and service providers.<br />

The Carnival multi-purpose<br />

vehicle has been around for<br />

many years, it has been a popular<br />

seven or eight-seater and the new<br />

model hasn’t lost sight of that<br />

original concept, it is versatile and<br />

practical, yet it also has dynamics<br />

which often disguise its bulk and<br />

concept.<br />

The Carnival arrives here<br />

with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder<br />

turbocharged R-series diesel<br />

engine that has earned itself a<br />

healthy reputation for power<br />

and economy in other Kia and<br />

Hyundai models. The old V6<br />

petrol engine that has given<br />

faithful service throughout the<br />

Carnival’s life is not available in<br />

New Zealand now, diesel is all<br />

you can get. However, to me that’s<br />

a good thing, the R-series unit is<br />

an absolute cracker, it is strong<br />

and silent.<br />

There are three specification<br />

levels in Carnival – EX, Deluxe<br />

and Premium. The range starts<br />

at $59,990 and ends at $74,990<br />

for the Premium as tested,<br />

in-between the Deluxe sits at<br />

$69,990.<br />

In terms of figures, the twincamshaft,<br />

16-valve diesel has<br />

148kW and 440Nm power output<br />

to consider, it is rated with a<br />

6.5-litre per 100km combined<br />

cycle fuel usage rating and it<br />

accelerates to 100km/h in 8.8sec.<br />

These are impressive figures<br />

considering the Carnival weighs<br />

in bulky at just over two-tonne.<br />

Drive is channelled through an<br />

eight-speed automatic gearbox<br />

through to the front wheels.<br />

Yes, the Carnival is two-wheeldrive<br />

only, and that is one of the<br />

reasons why it can’t be considered<br />

a sport utility vehicle. Therein lies<br />

further appeal, many SUVs don’t<br />

get used to their full potential. If<br />

you do have a need to transport<br />

several occupants frequently,<br />

then the Carnival will do that in<br />

comfort and style, making full<br />

use of its design role.<br />

BOLD: Black wheels on the Premium model give the<br />

Carnival a sporty look.<br />

KIA CARNIVAL PREMIUM: Versatile eight-seater with adaptable seating configurations.<br />

IDENTITY: Out with the old and in with the new - Kia’s<br />

logo going forward (right).<br />

It is also extremely practical,<br />

the seating configurations are<br />

many-fold, the centre row is<br />

adaptable for easy access to the<br />

rear, and the rear seats also fold<br />

down deep into a cargo area for<br />

increased interior load space.<br />

Not only does the Carnival<br />

have on-board versatility, access<br />

is also easy with automatic sliding<br />

doors on each side, and a high-lift<br />

rear tailgate.<br />

At the other end, the R-Series<br />

diesel is a tireless worker, it<br />

develops all of its power low in<br />

the rev range at 3800rpm, and<br />

if you take into account that the<br />

area of peak torque lists from<br />

1750rpm to 2750rpm, you don’t<br />

need to constantly work the<br />

engine, it is happy slugging it out<br />

at low revs.<br />

Power through the<br />

transmission is well harnessed.<br />

Shifts are quick and smooth,<br />

while the ratios are structured<br />

for that healthy acceleration time<br />

and the ability to sip fuel gently<br />

at open road speed – 6l/100km at<br />

100km/h with the engine turning<br />

over slowly at just 1650rpm. The<br />

driver can also choose an active<br />

economical driving mode that<br />

eases the load on the engine for<br />

fuel efficiency gains. Take into<br />

account as well the Carnival’s<br />

72-litre fuel tank, long distances<br />

can be travelled before fill-ups are<br />

necessary.<br />

In Premium specification, the<br />

Carnival is fully loaded with<br />

kit, much of it new-generation<br />

equipment. There’s also a healthy<br />

level of safety kit, both passive<br />

and active.<br />

Features for convenience and<br />

comfort include full leather trim,<br />

satellite navigation, triple-zone<br />

climate control, electric seat<br />

adjustment (also heated and<br />

cooled up front), heated steering<br />

wheel and reversing camera. All<br />

of these features are included<br />

in an ultra-modern interior<br />

that relies heavily on operation<br />

through the central dash touch<br />

screen command centre.<br />

I took the test car on my<br />

normal inland route – State<br />

Highway 72 – the scenic route<br />

through to Glenroy. At both low<br />

and cruising speeds, the Carnival<br />

has quiet motion and a beautiful<br />

ride, the front-strut and multiplelink<br />

rear suspension has soft<br />

spring and damper rates and, as<br />

such, they absorb ruts and bumps<br />

well. That along with the strongly<br />

bolstered seat cushioning means<br />

the ride is more than plush.<br />

• Price – Kia Carnival<br />

Premium, $74,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5155mm; width, 1995mm;<br />

height, 1775mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

2151cc, 148kW,<br />

440Nm, eight-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

8.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.5l/100km<br />

There is a little trade-off when<br />

it comes time to tackle our<br />

country’s tight and twisty corners.<br />

The Carnival is large, which<br />

means there is a lot of vehicle to<br />

get around a corner in the first<br />

instance. The body leans over<br />

the suspension thanks to its tall<br />

centre of gravity; however, the<br />

weight transfer is gradual and<br />

doesn’t affect vehicle balance.<br />

There aren’t a lot of vehicles of<br />

this type new in the New Zealand<br />

market, and to be fair, demand is<br />

spasmodic.<br />

However, Kia has stuck with<br />

the Carnival, and for those who<br />

do travel as a group it is the<br />

perfect choice and one that will<br />

gain recognition with a wide<br />

cross-section of the community.<br />

Kia has styled the Carnival so<br />

that it will appeal with its shape,<br />

it has attitude, disguising well<br />

the van-like look that has often<br />

accompanied multi-purpose<br />

vehicles and people movers.<br />
