Massive

effort to

get meals

to those

in need

• By Samantha Mythen

VOLUNTEERS ARE working

through lockdown to get meals

to people in need around the

harbour basin.

Lyttelton Community House,

which is operating as an essential

service, is delivering its normal

20-30 meals a week.

Community house social

worker Claire Coveney, who has

worked with the organisation for

two years, said it was “a massive

community team effort.”

The service began after the

earthquakes, which resulted in

the community house bringing in

a commercial kitchen.

Coveney said most of the people

they help are those who are older,

have disabilities or have health

issues. The meals cost $8.50.

“They may have difficulties

cooking or food shopping, or they

need legitimate rest or have been

unwell in hospital,” she said.

The organisation helps people

with both short and long-term

issues, for however long they

need, Coveney said.

WE WOULD all rather do

without lockdowns – or would

we?

Our photographer Geoff

Sloan has been out and about

across Christchurch during

lockdown getting shots of

people walking their dogs and

doing all the things we did last

year during lockdown.

He was in the Bay Harbour

News area yesterday photographing

people and their

pooches. Like last year everyone

seems happy, he said.

The impending arrival of

spring almost certainly has

much to do with the upbeat

mood. The canines aren’t complaining

either.

On another note, great to

see the Lyttelton Community

House delivering meals to

those who need a bit of a helping

hand.

The community house does

fantastic work.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

• By Samantha Mythen

A HOTEL worker is facing

deportation after documentation

on her essential skills work visa

application was found to be

bogus.

Argentinian Zaira Valls who

is head chef at the Ōtoromiro

Hotel in Governors Bay was

scheduled to leave New Zealand

last week, but the flight was cancelled

because of the lockdown.

Valls, 27, has lived in New

Zealand for nearly four years,

and has worked at the Ōtoromiro

Hotel for the past two

and a half years.

But Immigration New Zealand

found a reference letter for

her essential skills work visa

application was fake.

To be eligible for the work

visa, a person must be offered a

full-time job for which no other

New Zealanders are available,

and they must have the necessary

qualifications and work

experience.

A person must have three

years of work experience if they

do not have a qualification.

Chefs are currently in demand.

For her visa application, Valls

told Bay Harbour News she had

submitted a reference letter

written by a friend, which said

she had worked as a chef for a

year in Argentina, to make up

Deception costs chef her job

NEWS 3

In Brief

DEPORTATION: Argentinian Zaira Valls will be deported

after documentation on her visa application was found to

be bogus.

the three years of experience

needed.

Valls said it was a “stupid mistake,”

which she now regretted.

Valls said she had heard

of many examples of people

submitting forged documents to

meet visa conditions.

“I was so stupid to think this

could work. I have realised

how silly I was thinking that

my friends give good advice on

this,” she said.

Immigration New Zealand

issued Valls with a deportation

notice on June 22 on the

grounds “false or misleading

information” had been provided.

INZ general manager verification

and compliance Geoff

Scott said applicants must make

truthful declarations on their

applications.

He said it should not be

“viewed as a mistake given how

important providing honest and

truthful information is in relation

to immigration matters.”

Valls employers, Jeremy and

Clare Dyer say the decision to

deport her is “inhumane.”

“I liken Zaira’s error to

stealing a loaf of bread from the

East End in the 1800s and then

deporting them to the colonies,”

said Jeremy.

“In Zaira’s case, she’s being

sent back to Argentina, which is

being ravaged by Covid-19, it’s

not safe for her.”

Argentina has more than five

million reported Covid-19 cases.

Valls does not want to leave,

with her boyfriend and many

friends here.

“I feel safe here, my life is here.

I work so hard at my job and I

feel really at home here. It is so

awful to have to leave.”

What has made it all worse, is

the stress she has felt in trying to

organise her departure.

“There are not many options

at all,” said Valls.

“A single flight is looking to

cost $11,000, which is such a lot

of money.”

DRIVERS TURNED BACK

Sightseers on their way to

Akaroa for the weekend were

stopped and turned around

by police. Police said “six or

seven” vehicles were stopped

by officers during a 50min

blitz at Tai Tapu on Saturday

afternoon. The occupants were

told to turn around and go back

to their bubbles. About half of

the vehicles had been travelling

from Christchurch and half from

the Selwyn district, said Senior

Sergeant Dean Harker. They

could not give a justifiable reason

for going to Akaroa, he said. “You

can’t just decide you are going to

do some sightseeing somewhere

and drive outside of your area,”

Harker said.

OUR PEOPLE – ALEX HALLATT

From comics to the real world of

Cocooned in a studio

perched on one

of Lyttelton’s hills,

at a desk under a

window looking out

over the harbour, is

writer, cartoonist and

environmentalist Alex

Hallatt. She talks to

Samantha Mythen

How did you land this triad

of roles; writer, cartoonist and

environmentalist?

I’ve been cartooning

since I was a kid, and I’ve

been concerned about the

environment since the lights

first went off in England during

the oil crisis in the 1970s. Back

then we thought that was going

to be the biggest problem, that

and nuclear war. Little did

we know. I’ve always been a

cartoon hobbyist but I actually

love science, so I got a degree in

biochemistry then worked in

the pharmaceutical industry for

seven years. After that, I had a bit

of a breakdown and I had no idea

what else I could do except draw

cartoons. My Kiwi boyfriend

at the time and I moved down

to the south coast of England

and I got a job with the Brighton

Argus, which probably has a

similar circulation to the Bay

CREATIVE PURSUIT: Alex Hallatt works on her creative dreams from a tiny home studio

overlooking Lyttelton Harbour.

PHOTO: SAMANTHA MYTHEN

Harbour News. I became their

editorial cartoonist. That was in

1999 and I’ve been a full-time,

professional cartoonist ever

since.

So you grew up in England,

then found yourself here?

I grew up in Dorset, in the

hilly, countryside. I don’t think

I could live on the flat. You can’t

see as far on the flat and I think

that’s metaphorical as much as

literal. I love Banks Peninsula. I

feel connected to the peninsula,

the green, the lushness, the

views. All the best ideas are up in

the Port Hills. My mantra to my

partner is ‘hills not pills.’ If you

live somewhere like Lyttelton

and you don’t drive everywhere,

then exercise is automatically

part of your day.

I’d been thinking about New

Zealand since 1977, because

that year, I was seven and my

dad tried to get a job here as

a lawyer. But they didn’t want

him, there were already too

many lawyers. So, New Zealand

has been in my consciousness

since then. I was intrigued by it.

When I got my first proper job

in the pharmaceutical company,

I saved up for a couple of years

and I came out as a backpacker

in 1996. I was 26 then and it blew

my mind.

I spent some time in Australia

after that and then went back

to the United Kingdom. I am a

ping-pong pom. In 2003, I went

back to New Zealand to live. As

soon as I came into Lyttelton, I

thought “Oh wow, this is it. This

is the place.”

Initially, I couldn’t find

anywhere to live, but I got a

studio at number 6 and then I

ended up meeting my partner.

He was in the flat below my

studio and we were daytime

neighbours. He told me when

I’d left my lights on driving

through the tunnel. We’ve been

mostly together and here since

then.

Knowing how difficult things

are going to be in the future for

everybody, I think being part

of a good, strong, resilient and

connected community is so

important. Lyttelton was the

community we wanted to be in.

How did you become a

freelance cartoonist?

I am really a writer first and I

enjoyed writing stories as a kid.

But drawing cartoons gets you

the attention. Making other kids

laugh in class, I did like that.

Then the other thing, I loved

reading comics when I was a kid.

OUR PEOPLE 7

looking after the environment

So, I think I was about sixyears-old

when someone gave

me an old copy of a Peanuts

collection, and I went: ‘Oh

my god, this is a world of kids

without grown-ups and I love

this.’ You could just create this

whole world. A picture tells a

thousand worlds, but actually,

you get the point across better if

you have some worlds as well. It’s

a great way to communicate.

In 2006, I was syndicated. In

the United States of America,

comics are a lot bigger than here

and so things like Peanuts, and

Garfield and Far Side, they get

syndicated, which means one

company sells them to lots of

newspapers all over the world.

That, as a cartoonist at the

time, was like winning the

lottery. Back then, a syndicate

got 3000 submissions a year and

launched three comics. Now,

they launch maybe one comic a

year. Because newspapers, you

know what’s happening. So it was

a big deal. I got in and I’m still

syndicated. It is a dual challenge

of newspapers being in decline

in the US and newspapers in the

US tend to be read by people who

are not that progressive when it

comes to environmental issues

and my syndicated comic Arctic

Circle has an environmental

theme.

Arctic Circle is a daily comic,

running seven days a week,

which appears in about 40

newspapers, mainly in the US

and Canada.

It has been really rewarding

because I am living the dream. It

was my childhood dream to be a

syndicated artist. So that comic

takes up half my time.

I’ve been moving into writing

and illustrating my own books. I

self-publish, which has been an

incredible learning process. I’m

currently trying to write a novel.

When did you write your first

book and what was that about?

I wrote my first book when I

was 13. It was called Soggy the

Dinosaur. I’ve been illustrating

books for other publishers, with

cartoons, for a while though. My

first one The More I see of Men,

the More I Love my Dog, was

in 2002. My first self-published

book was Hoover the Hungry Dog

in 2014. I primarily create kids

books and humour books.

Where do you get your

inspiration for your content?

It depends, things come to me

all the time. For the books about

bullying, it was because I was

bullied as a kid. I had a really

happy home life but when I was

at school, I had no friends. I was

bullied psychologically, I was

teased. It wasn’t until we moved

and I met my friends who were

geek likes me. I felt really, really

alone before that. My parents

were wonderful but they didn’t

know what to do, and I thought,

“I want to write the books I

would’ve liked to have read as a

kid.”

So I did. I get amazing

feedback from kids. One boy

said: ‘I love this book, I just wish

it was real.’

In 2008, I spent two years in

Basque, Spain with Duncan

(my partner). I am not good at

languages so I really wanted to

learn. I had been talking to some

friends about the bullying books

and they thought they would

be perfect in Basque. A Basque

publisher then picked them up

and translated them. It’s a trilogy

and the last book is coming out

later this year. Usually, it takes a

while to earn out the advance, but

the first two books have already

done that and now I’m earning

royalties. But for me, it’s not the

money, it’s never been about the

money for those books, it’s the

fact that kids are reading them.

It’s not just the kids that are being

bullied but the kids that are seeing

other people being bullied and are

unsure what to do about it. It’s this

idea that bullying is not okay in

any situation and you can stand

up to it.

How did Arctic Circle evolve?

I saw it has featured in the New

York Times.

I came up with the idea for the

characters in 1992, when I wasn’t

quite as good at drawing and at

the time, comic strips were black

and white. I thought, if I base

this in the Arctic, I won’t have to

draw any backgrounds.

Polar bears and penguins look

great together, but as a scientist,

this is a terrible thing to do as

penguins are from Antarctica.

So, I made them immigrant

penguins. They talk too, it’s

obviously not the real world.

OUR PEOPLE

‘Environmentalism really permeates my entire life’

• From page 7

When I relaunched the strip,

environmentalism had become

an intrinsic part of who I was and

it was becoming more and more

important. Now, it is the most

important thing I think.

How do you include

environmentalism in your day

to day life?

Duncan’s pride and joy is his

dirty, diesel Land-Rover. I don’t

think you should dictate to

anyone how to live their life but

I have an electric bicycle and a

regular bicycle.

My electric bike is my car and

I charge that via the solar energy

collected from my studio. I also

absolutely love the Zilch car

share, borrowing the electric car

from the Rec Centre. But most

of the time, I walk or bike and

then I love the number 28 bus. So

that’s transport.

Environmentalism really

permeates my entire life. I think

the biggest thing we can do is

reduce our consumption. There

is so much stuff in the world

already. I gave up eating meat

about a year ago.

I think it’s important globally

for us to eat less meat. I also

garden and shop locally. I buy

my groceries, first at the Farmer’s

Market, second at the Harbour

Co-op, third at Lyttelton

Supervalue.

I go to the supermarket once a

month to get the things I can’t get

from those places.

How has your comic practice

evolved and your drawing style

changed?

It’s got better. Because actually,

I don’t think I am very good at

drawing. I’m totally faking it

because I enjoy writing. I mean,

I like being a cartoonist but

there are lots of people probably

reading this article who can draw

better than me.

It’s just putting the two

together and doing it in a way

that is engaging to people and

luckily, I think I’ve improved

over time.

How do you manage your

time as a freelancer?

I think the tasks expand to

fill the time available. When

I’m really good and am putting

out a couple of books a year,

it’s because I have planned the

year and then I’ve planned the

quarters, then I look at each

quarter and I plan the weeks.

At the beginning of each week,

I plan the week. That’s a skeleton

that I hang everything on. At the

beginning of each day, I write

down how I am actually going to

get today’s things done, and then

I do most of it.

You have to be flexible but

you have to have a target, a

destination because if you don’t

then you will drive all over the

road. You’ve got to map things

out so you know where you are

going.

You recently ran a planting

day called Adopt the Zig-Zag,

tell me about that?

We need to think about where

everything drains because if it

is going into a storm drain, it is

going into the Lyttelton Harbour.

At the bottom of the Zig-Zag

(on Joyce St), there is a storm

drain that collects the weed

spray and the dirt from the park

after heavy rain and then it goes

into the harbour. I swim in the

harbour, I love the harbour. I

recently chatted to a city council

contractor who looks after

the park and asked if I found

some people to help me and we

adopted this, would they stop

spraying.

Their major concern was health

and safety, letting loose a bunch

of residents in a public space. I’m

not great with bureaucracy but

I know a guy who is. Hamish

Fairburn from Conservation

Volunteers. So I collared him at

the library and explained there

was this public area that I wanted

to adopt. He was on board.

The city council supplied

the plants and mulch, Hamish

supplied the high-vis vests and

tools, I got the word out. Initially

in the morning, it was a really

revolting rainy day, Hamish

looked at us and then at the 200

plants and said, maybe we won’t

put all of these out.

We thought we will just see

how much we can get done by

12.30pm. But then more and

more people showed up, which

was just fantastic. And everyone

was beaming.

It was cold but we had a green

chain gang passing buckets of

mulch up and empty buckets

down and we were done in an

hour. There are plans to do more,

so stay tuned.

COMBATING screen time

and encouraging children

to connect with nature and

the world around them on

a deeper holistic level are

the goals of an educational

programme based

at Orton Bradley

Park.

Bush Farm Education

recently

received $10,000

from the city

council Sustainability

Fund, which

will go towards

developing a farm,

food and fibre

curriculum for

children taking part in the

programme.

Founder, director and

teacher Katie Earle started

Bush Farm Education four

years ago due to a “deep

desire to offer alternative

schooling to kids where

they can get out of the

classroom for at least one

day a week.”

She is “stoked” to receive

the funding.

“This is hopefully the

start of many more grants.”

The curriculum to be

developed from the fund

will focus on helping children

understand they are

part of a wider ecosystem,

learning about where

things such as meat and

wool fibre come from.

Said Earle: “I hope

this will then encourage

children to make different

decisions about what they

are choosing to eat and

wear.”

Earle, who originally

worked as a primary

school teacher, could see

children increasingly

struggling in large classrooms,

where technology

Katie Earle

is integrated into every

lesson.

“Kids need time to be

outside and to involve

themselves in real-life

learning,” she said.

Maths and science are

incorporated into the programme,

such as

with the harvesting

of pumpkins,

teaching about the

living world, and

spending time

with animals.

Bush Farm

aims to provide

young people with

a “deep nature

connection.”

Earle explained

the programme focuses

on developing children’s

sensory experiences as this

empowers their learning

and helps them to remember

what they have learned

for years to come.

Students are meant

to commit to at least six

months of taking part in

the programme but Earle

said many have stayed on

for several years.

Isaac Fahey’s 10-year-old

daughter Maddi has just

started the programme.

They live in Rāpaki.

Fahey said he wanted

Maddi to attend Bush

Farm as “it’s important

for kids to spend time

outdoors in a learning

environment where life

skills can really be put to

use.”

Maddi said, in just two

lessons, she had learned

how to make a fire, work

on a tractor, and about

what cows eat.

“I love getting out of the

classroom to learn about

nature and what is surrounding

me,” she said.

“Katie is one of the best

teachers I’ve ever had.”

Rod Millynn’s son

Lachie is seven and has

attended the programme

for a year. They live in

Heathcote Valley.

“Lachie is a really

outdoorsy kid and this

provides him with an

opportunity to learn about

and connect with nature,”

Millynn said.

“He has been diagnosed

with dyslexia and so he

thrives on these intellectual

interactions. He always

comes home beaming.”

Lachie said his favourite

part of the programme was

being in nature and learning

about animals.

Earle decided to base

Bush Farm Education at

Orton Bradley Park due to

its diverse environment,

with two farms, a bush

area, and a flowing river.

“It is the taonga at

Christchurch; an amazing

resource right at our doorstep.”

Over the coming

months, Earle said she is

planning to build relationships

with Christchurch

schools.

“This place is a resource

they can use,” she said.

Earle is also hoping

to work with businesses

that align with the programme’s

values such as

sustainability and well-being.

“I’d love to work with

businesses who could

provide scholarships for

young people, removing

the monetary barriers for

them,” she said.

“To have this support

would be phenomenal. If

anyone is interested, please

reach out.”

Hunt on for Wally

REPAIRED: A historic retaining wall on Coleridge Tce in

Lyttelton has been rebuilt. PHOTO: ANDREW TURNER

Wall repairs completed

• By Samantha Mythen

THE HISTORIC retaining wall

on Lyttelton’s Coleridge Tce has

finally been repaired.

The walls, made out of volcanic

rock from Lyttelton Harbour,

were damaged during the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

The city council started work

to fix the wall in February this

year.

Work included demolition of

the existing wall, construction

of a new concrete retaining wall

and a partial road re-construction.

The contractors saved and reused

the historic red rock facing

from the historic wall.

Said Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner, who lives in Lyttelton:

“These repairs have been

undertaken on many of the

heritage retaining walls around

Lyttelton which were damaged or

destroyed in the earthquakes.

“The result is a modern fully

functioning and fully compliant

retaining wall that also retains

the red rock that is such a part

of Lyttelton’s character and

heritage.”

Lyttelton Club which operates

from a building in front of

the wall shared images of the

completed wall on its Facebook

page.

“It sure is great to see it now

repaired and looking so good,”

the organisation said.

A WHERE’S Wally scavenger

hunt is encouraging Heathcote

Valley residents to get outside,

have some fun and keep active

this lockdown.

On Sunday, Anna Marsden

and her three children put up

15 pictures of the red and white

striped T-shirt wearing, glasses-adorned

Wally.

Marsden was inspired by

Katie Wallis, an Australian

school teacher she follows on

Instagram.

“Katie sews and I sew, hence I

follow her for inspiration,” said

Marsden.

“I saw she had created a

Where’s Wally scavenger hunt

around her neighbourhood and

thought my boys would love to

do that too.”

Wallis shared the pictures, allowing

anyone to download the

file and also create a scavenger

hunt.

Two of Marsden’s sons,

Frankin and Arthur, helped her

to set up the Wally trail.

“We put on our face masks,

took our hand sanitiser and

went out to create the hunt,” she

said.

When they got home, Marsden

shared the scavenger hunt

on Facebook, encouraging other

people to see if they can find all

15 pictures of Wally.

SCAVENGER HUNT: Arthur and Franklin helped to create

a Where’s Wally scavenger hunt in Heathcote Valley. Can

you find Wally in the photo above?

“In just 24 hours from going

live on Facebook, we heard

about heaps of people who were

out looking for Wally,” said

Marsden.

“It’s a light-hearted and fun

thing to do, providing a different

focus. The kids love hearing

that their friends are out looking

as well, helping to nurture

connections during this time.”

The scavenger hunt begins at

National Identity

Confessions of an outsider by Simon Bridges

An open, honest and at times intensely personal memoir about race, fatherhood,

marriage, masculinity, fitting in, and the things that shape our national character.

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

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

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

for Bridges, his was the life of an outsider: experiencing otherness for

being Maori, and yet an otherness from other Maori; a Westie with

a thick accent, trying to break into the upper reaches of society;

distanced from his father, an ageing man in his own world. As

a young politician, Bridges soon came to realise he was an

introvert in an extrovert’s world, and a male leader who has

never identified with New Zealand’s idealised version of the

strong, laconic, rugby-loving man.

In National Identity, Bridges offers an attempt to question himself

and the country he loves. Politics, crime, kai, music, nature: these

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

points out that politicians have become less robust, and that people

don’t participate as much anymore - eroding our institutions and national life.

He speaks his mind on an education system in crisis, the decline of Christianity,

and how being the smallest, most isolated developed country in the world

explains why we are how we are.

Authentic, brilliant, humorous and poignant, National Identity is a must-read

New Zealand memoir.

The Girl Behind The Wall

by Mandy Robotham

From the USA Today and internationally bestselling WWII novelist of The German

Midwife, The Secret Messenger and The Berlin Girl comes a story set at the dawn

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

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

East Berlin and separated from her twin sister, Jutta. Two sisters torn apart.

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

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

brutal East German regime.

One impossible choice…

When Jutta finds a hidden way through the wall, the twins are reunited. But the

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

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

A timely reminder that, even in darkness, love will always guide you home, this

gripping and emotional tale is perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz by

Heather Morris and The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane.

If you could change one thing

in NZ would it be and why?

NZ is certainly not a utopia and

there are many things that I

would change.

I think there is this idea that

we are a post gender and post

racial society when neither of

those things are true and I would

like to see more social advocacy

and more acknowledgement of

the problems we do have in areas

of gender and race.

I was fortunate enough to

go to an all-girls school so the

idea of people still being sexist

was absolutely foreign to me.

However, I’ve come to learn that

sexism is subtle and a lot of the

historic ideas around what it

means to be a man or a woman

or whatever are still super

prevalent particularly in regard

to sexual assault.

What is the biggest challenge facing

I think the biggest challenge is how

There have been so many political,

social and environmental changes. As

well as this there has also been a big

shift in employment opportunities.

Being able to adapt to change has

become essential for our generation.

What is the biggest challenge facing

Honestly, I think there is a lot of

challenges facing humanity and they’re

all serious. Climate change has a huge

impact on everyone, and we can see the

effects of it every day.

I think it’s one of the biggest

challenges because we can still turn it

around, but it means globally everyone

is going to have to change the way they

live.

If you could change one thing in NZ,

what would it be and why?

Mental health services. I think that

more funding needs to go towards them

so they’re more accessible to everyone.

Sarah Cody

Mandell

Health sciences

scholarship

What are you

aiming to do when

you graduate?

After completing

my undergraduate

degree I am hoping

to continue my

studies and complete a phd degree

in psychology focusing my thesis

around the role of micronutrients and

macronutrients in mental illness.

However, I also have an ambition to

be considered for one of New Zealand’s

clinical psychology programmes at

some stage in my career.

What does the scholarship mean for

you?

This scholarship allows me to avoid

financial stress and consequently I

am able to reach my full potential and

dedicate my time and energy towards

my studies.

In addition it drives me knowing I have

support from my community in which

hope to be working with in the future.

What would you like to be doing in

10 years time?

In 10 years time I picture myself

building my career either working

in the health sector as a mental

health practitioner/health care

professional and placing an emphasis

on the increased need for available

mental health resources and support

throughout the nation.

Alternatively I would love to undergo

further research in the growing field of

nutritions role in mental illness. In addition

I hope to be financially stable, surrounded

by loved ones and in good health.

What is the biggest challenge facing

people of your generation and why?

The biggest challenge facing my

generation is the extreme potency of

social media within our everyday lives.

The integration of the ‘tool’ is

associated with several mental health

issues and is an extreme facilitator of

abuse, isolation, social skill degradation,

feelings of inadequacy and has the

potential to create a false reality along

with carrying an addictive nature.

What is the biggest challenge facing

humanity and why?

The biggest challenge facing humanity

today is break down of the global

community with the rise of nationalism

in which countries isolate themselves.

In turn this prevents the ability to

progress with global agreement and

decisions regarding pressing current

issues such as human induced climate

change, Covid-19, population growth

and food insecurity.

If you could change one thing in NZ,

what would it be and why?

One thing I would change about

New Zealand is the low accessibility of

funded mental health care.

I believe mental health professionals

should be far more available and

communities should receive further

education on detaching the stigma

associated with mental illness and

seeking help.

This is due to many lacking a strong

support network who should be able to

receive the care they deserve.

Pupils’ cards a fundraiser for school

• By Samantha Mythen

COLOURFUL cards created

by children are being sold as

a school fundraiser.

At the end of each year,

Lyttelton Primary School

takes its year 8 pupils to

Wellington, a trip that costs

about $500 a person.

Teacher Rachel Cummins

said it is a way to celebrate

the pupils finishing primary

school and acknowledging

their input as seniors.

The yearly trips began in

2015 and were also a way

to show pupils a “city experience,”

with Christchurch

still recovering from the

earthquakes.

Cummins said, while in

Wellington, they visit places

such as Parliament, Te Papa,

and Weta Workshop, “the

whole shebang.”

Due to the costs involved,

the school always raised a

significant amount of money

from fundraising to pay for

it.

This year, Ange Hyland,

a parent of Tyler, one of the

year 8 pupils, suggested

they design cards to sell as a

fundraiser.

She is the manager of

Printable Solutions and

offered to provide the card

materials, printing and marketing

for the project.

FUN FUNDRAISER:

Manager of Printable

Solutions and mother

of year 8 pupil Tyler

at Lyttelton Primary

School, helped the

group make cards to sell

for their school trip to

Wellington.

The pupils came up with

the card designs themselves.

There are three packs of 10

cards, grouped in themes of

animals, birdlife and nature,

and birthdays.

Said Cummins: “I think

this is a great idea. Our kids

love art and Ange has provided

them with a platform

to express this creativity.”

Cards can be purchased

from the school or at gift

shop the Lyttel Kiwi; a 10-

pack costs $20.

Speakers

share

their stories

• By Samantha Mythen

COMMUNITY Conversations,

a new weekly speaker series held

in Lyttelton, is providing people

with the opportunity to share

stories, learn something new and

connect with others.

There have been three speakers

since the project’s beginnings

in August, discussing a diverse

range of topics.

The events are organised by

Lyttelton Timebank as part of

Project Lyttelton and are held

on Tuesday evenings at Eruption

Brewing on London St.

Timebank co-ordinator Jill

Larking said the speakers so far

had been “really amazing.”

“It has been quite cool to see the

positive response from all the different

people attending,” she said.

“The work at Project Lyttelton is

all about offering the community

opportunities to connect and this

seems to be a winning formula.”

The series began with a conversation

with Duncan Wilcox.

He shared his story on the

founding of Lyttelton Farmer’s

Market.

The next conversation is set to

be with a speaker from charitable

trust Community Energy Action,

providing advice on how to create a

healthy and energy-efficient home.

Golf production shows no sign of slowing

GET YOUR head around this –

Volkswagen’s Golf has reached 47

years in production and is now in

its eighth generation.

Only a few nameplates see that

kind of distance, those that have

carved out a healthy reputation in

the marketplace.

According to Volkswagen, it

has produced over 45 million

Golfs from production sites, not

just in Germany but scattered in

plants globally, and there’s no sign

that production will end anytime

soon.

Golf 8 has just landed in New

Zealand and at present it is

available here in three variants

– two TSi models and a GTi.

I’m sure the high performance

Golf R will find its way here as

production comes on stream and

supply lines are generated to 100

per cent. The two TSi models

consist of the base specification

$37,990 variant which is

designated Life, and the R-Line

model as tested, it adds $10k. For

interest’s sake, the GTi is listed at

$61,490.

The R-Line evaluation car

lived up to all expectation. It

is the quintessential five-door

hatchback that makes you feel

particularly good to be in.

Volkswagen has been

careful not to depart from the

fundamental concept of Golf, it’s

exactly what you’d expect from a

generational change, the driveline

has been further refined, the

exterior style has been sharpened,

while the interior has gone very

high-tech.

In terms of the latter, even

though the electronic functions

are vast they are minimalistic

and intuitive. There’s a strong

presence of haptic switches and

buttons, fingertip controls that

make understanding and working

the controls simple.

The entire dash panel and

layout is clean and fresh, in

keeping with the rest of the

ultra-modern interior. When

you are inside the Golf 8 you feel

part of the vehicle, and at home

with its ergonomics, it has that

unmistakeable European feel.

Comfort levels are also high

and space for five adults is far

from compromised. The Golf

over the years hasn’t dramatically

increased in size, so you still

have that compact feel yet know

there’s enough room on board

for the time when it will be full to

capacity.

I have a friend who has the

previous generation model and

she has often had a full load onboard,

that’s something you can

do easily with Golf, it makes good

use of its proportions.

Under the bonnet sits a 1.4-litre

ULTRA-MODERN: Comprehensive but minimalistic display

and control systems are intuitive to use.

VOLKSWAGEN GOLF TSI: Eight-generation model is now available in Kiwi market.

turbocharged four-cylinder

engine that is pretty much a

carryover. It’s a real honey in

terms of how it operates, it is

smooth, quiet and efficient.

Volkswagen claim power outputs

of 110kW and 250Nm, the

secret to its keen performance

are the areas where power and

torque are developed, both low

down at 5000rpm and 1500rpm

respectively. Consequently, there

is strong boost from take-off and

no drop-off of power through

to the redline, all of the time the

engine is singing sweetly, it is well

isolated and shows no sign of

breathlessness.

Drive is carried through

an eight-speed automatic

transmission that has paddle

shifters if you wish to manually

work up and down the ratios.

Not only is the driveline such

a strong performer – 0-100km in

8.7sec – but it is also a fuel miser.

Volkswagen claim a combined

cycle average of 5.8-litres per

100km. That sits well with the

readout during my time with the

TSi, it was constantly listing at

7l/100km with 4l/100km showing

instantaneously at 100km/h

(engine speed 1800rpm).

When I mentioned that

European feel from inside the car,

that presence is also carried on

through movement. It feels firmly

connected to the road and has

handling that has you thinking

you are driving something far

more exotic.

Drive is channelled to the front

wheels, and that has been a Golf

fundamental since day one. The

suspension is a mix of struts

up front with an independent

multi-link rear. The combination

provides wheel freedom and

adequate suspension movement.

The spring and damper

rates are exactly what you

would expect, and want, just

enough firming to contain body

movement along with the ability

to tackle the hits from uneven

road surfaces.

Providing the grip are

beautiful Bridgestone tyres,

at 225/40 x 18in the profile is

such that there is just enough

sidewall flex to maintain onboard

comfort, along with the

footprint to promote feedback to

the driver.

I took the evaluation car on

the inland scenic route (SH72)

through to Glenroy from

Darfield, the Golf dispenses

distances with ease and is

a competent handler when

the wide, flowing corners are

presented. In the tight stuff,

steerage is sharp and direct, the

Golf almost dances through

the twisty bits, it is athletic and

nimble, providing the driver with

a great deal of satisfaction.

As an everyday drive, my five

days with the evaluation car

involved the urban commute and

I’ve deemed it the quintessential

city car, it dawdles the traffic with

a smooth operating manner and

doesn’t tax the occupants in any

way.

That’s why Golf has done so

well globally, it is a car that does

nothing wrong but everything

right. In R-Line form it has those

extra bits that you could say gives

it a more luxurious feel.

However, I’d be saving the $10k

and pick up the Life variant, it

just seems such a bargain and

would certainly make you feel

like a million dollars every time

you are in it.
