Massive<br />

effort to<br />

get meals<br />

to those<br />

in need<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

VOLUNTEERS ARE working<br />

through lockdown to get meals<br />

to people in need around the<br />

harbour basin.<br />

Lyttelton Community House,<br />

which is operating as an essential<br />

service, is delivering its normal<br />

20-30 meals a week.<br />

Community house social<br />

worker Claire Coveney, who has<br />

worked with the organisation for<br />

two years, said it was “a massive<br />

community team effort.”<br />

The service began after the<br />

earthquakes, which resulted in<br />

the community house bringing in<br />

a commercial kitchen.<br />

Coveney said most of the people<br />

they help are those who are older,<br />

have disabilities or have health<br />

issues. The meals cost $8.50.<br />

“They may have difficulties<br />

cooking or food shopping, or they<br />

need legitimate rest or have been<br />

unwell in hospital,” she said.<br />

The organisation helps people<br />

with both short and long-term<br />

issues, for however long they<br />

need, Coveney said.<br />

WE WOULD all rather do<br />

without lockdowns – or would<br />

we?<br />

Our photographer Geoff<br />

Sloan has been out and about<br />

across Christchurch during<br />

lockdown getting shots of<br />

people walking their dogs and<br />

doing all the things we did last<br />

year during lockdown.<br />

He was in the <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

News area yesterday photographing<br />

people and their<br />

pooches. Like last year everyone<br />

seems happy, he said.<br />

The impending arrival of<br />

spring almost certainly has<br />

much to do with the upbeat<br />

mood. The canines aren’t complaining<br />

either.<br />

On another note, great to<br />

see the Lyttelton Community<br />

House delivering meals to<br />

those who need a bit of a helping<br />

hand.<br />

The community house does<br />

fantastic work.<br />

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

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

A HOTEL worker is facing<br />

deportation after documentation<br />

on her essential skills work visa<br />

application was found to be<br />

bogus.<br />

Argentinian Zaira Valls who<br />

is head chef at the Ōtoromiro<br />

Hotel in Governors <strong>Bay</strong> was<br />

scheduled to leave New Zealand<br />

last week, but the flight was cancelled<br />

because of the lockdown.<br />

Valls, 27, has lived in New<br />

Zealand for nearly four years,<br />

and has worked at the Ōtoromiro<br />

Hotel for the past two<br />

and a half years.<br />

But Immigration New Zealand<br />

found a reference letter for<br />

her essential skills work visa<br />

application was fake.<br />

To be eligible for the work<br />

visa, a person must be offered a<br />

full-time job for which no other<br />

New Zealanders are available,<br />

and they must have the necessary<br />

qualifications and work<br />

experience.<br />

A person must have three<br />

years of work experience if they<br />

do not have a qualification.<br />

Chefs are currently in demand.<br />

For her visa application, Valls<br />

told <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News she had<br />

submitted a reference letter<br />

written by a friend, which said<br />

she had worked as a chef for a<br />

year in Argentina, to make up<br />

Deception costs chef her job<br />

NEWS 3<br />

In Brief<br />

DEPORTATION: Argentinian Zaira Valls will be deported<br />

after documentation on her visa application was found to<br />

be bogus.<br />

the three years of experience<br />

needed.<br />

Valls said it was a “stupid mistake,”<br />

which she now regretted.<br />

Valls said she had heard<br />

of many examples of people<br />

submitting forged documents to<br />

meet visa conditions.<br />

“I was so stupid to think this<br />

could work. I have realised<br />

how silly I was thinking that<br />

my friends give good advice on<br />

this,” she said.<br />

Immigration New Zealand<br />

issued Valls with a deportation<br />

notice on June 22 on the<br />

grounds “false or misleading<br />

information” had been provided.<br />

INZ general manager verification<br />

and compliance Geoff<br />

Scott said applicants must make<br />

truthful declarations on their<br />

applications.<br />

He said it should not be<br />

“viewed as a mistake given how<br />

important providing honest and<br />

truthful information is in relation<br />

to immigration matters.”<br />

Valls employers, Jeremy and<br />

Clare Dyer say the decision to<br />

deport her is “inhumane.”<br />

“I liken Zaira’s error to<br />

stealing a loaf of bread from the<br />

East End in the 1800s and then<br />

deporting them to the colonies,”<br />

said Jeremy.<br />

“In Zaira’s case, she’s being<br />

sent back to Argentina, which is<br />

being ravaged by Covid-19, it’s<br />

not safe for her.”<br />

Argentina has more than five<br />

million reported Covid-19 cases.<br />

Valls does not want to leave,<br />

with her boyfriend and many<br />

friends here.<br />

“I feel safe here, my life is here.<br />

I work so hard at my job and I<br />

feel really at home here. It is so<br />

awful to have to leave.”<br />

What has made it all worse, is<br />

the stress she has felt in trying to<br />

organise her departure.<br />

“There are not many options<br />

at all,” said Valls.<br />

“A single flight is looking to<br />

cost $11,000, which is such a lot<br />

of money.”<br />

DRIVERS TURNED BACK<br />

Sightseers on their way to<br />

Akaroa for the weekend were<br />

stopped and turned around<br />

by police. Police said “six or<br />

seven” vehicles were stopped<br />

by officers during a 50min<br />

blitz at Tai Tapu on Saturday<br />

afternoon. The occupants were<br />

told to turn around and go back<br />

to their bubbles. About half of<br />

the vehicles had been travelling<br />

from Christchurch and half from<br />

the Selwyn district, said Senior<br />

Sergeant Dean Harker. They<br />

could not give a justifiable reason<br />

for going to Akaroa, he said. “You<br />

can’t just decide you are going to<br />

do some sightseeing somewhere<br />

and drive outside of your area,”<br />

Harker said.<br />

VOLUNTEERS WANTED<br />

The Sumner Community<br />

Residents’ Association is looking<br />

for more volunteers to help<br />

co-ordinate events, lend a hand<br />

with community projects or join<br />

the committee. Events they need<br />

help with include Christmas in<br />

Sumner, the Great Sumner Picnic<br />

and Neighbourhood Night.<br />

Those who need help either<br />

contact the organisation<br />

themselves, are encouraged by<br />

are referred by a health professional.<br />

“We cater to vegetarians,<br />

Coveney said.<br />

Community House works<br />

with the Black Cat Cruises ferry<br />

to deliver meals to Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

“It’s a big task for our Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> volunteers, as<br />

they have to carry the food bags<br />

up and down the steps from the<br />

ferry,” Coveney said.<br />

“The volunteers must be fit<br />

and well.”<br />

She also said she admired the<br />

Lyttelton volunteers for having<br />

to walk up the steep driveways<br />

in the port.<br />

“Our work is important as<br />

it means families know their<br />

loved ones are getting nutritious<br />

meals and we act as another set<br />

of eyes,” Coveney said.<br />

“It provides good social<br />

contact while in lockdown as<br />

well.”<br />

The meals are prepared by<br />

two local chefs, she said.<br />

Coveney said if anyone<br />

OUR PEOPLE – ALEX HALLATT<br />

From comics to the real world of<br />

Cocooned in a studio<br />

perched on one<br />

of Lyttelton’s hills,<br />

at a desk under a<br />

window looking out<br />

over the harbour, is<br />

writer, cartoonist and<br />

environmentalist Alex<br />

Hallatt. She talks to<br />

Samantha Mythen<br />

How did you land this triad<br />

of roles; writer, cartoonist and<br />

environmentalist?<br />

I’ve been cartooning<br />

since I was a kid, and I’ve<br />

been concerned about the<br />

environment since the lights<br />

first went off in England during<br />

the oil crisis in the 1970s. Back<br />

then we thought that was going<br />

to be the biggest problem, that<br />

and nuclear war. Little did<br />

we know. I’ve always been a<br />

cartoon hobbyist but I actually<br />

love science, so I got a degree in<br />

biochemistry then worked in<br />

the pharmaceutical industry for<br />

seven years. After that, I had a bit<br />

of a breakdown and I had no idea<br />

what else I could do except draw<br />

cartoons. My Kiwi boyfriend<br />

at the time and I moved down<br />

to the south coast of England<br />

and I got a job with the Brighton<br />

Argus, which probably has a<br />

similar circulation to the <strong>Bay</strong><br />

1999 and I’ve been a full-time,<br />

professional cartoonist ever<br />

since.<br />

So you grew up in England,<br />

then found yourself here?<br />

I grew up in Dorset, in the<br />

hilly, countryside. I don’t think<br />

I could live on the flat. You can’t<br />

see as far on the flat and I think<br />

that’s metaphorical as much as<br />

literal. I love Banks Peninsula. I<br />

feel connected to the peninsula,<br />

the green, the lushness, the<br />

views. All the best ideas are up in<br />

the Port Hills. My mantra to my<br />

partner is ‘hills not pills.’ If you<br />

live somewhere like Lyttelton<br />

and you don’t drive everywhere,<br />

then exercise is automatically<br />

part of your day.<br />

I’d been thinking about New<br />

Zealand since 1977, because<br />

that year, I was seven and my<br />

dad tried to get a job here as<br />

a lawyer. But they didn’t want<br />

him, there were already too<br />

many lawyers. So, New Zealand<br />

has been in my consciousness<br />

since then. I was intrigued by it.<br />

When I got my first proper job<br />

in the pharmaceutical company,<br />

I saved up for a couple of years<br />

and I came out as a backpacker<br />

in 1996. I was 26 then and it blew<br />

my mind.<br />

I spent some time in Australia<br />

after that and then went back<br />

to the United Kingdom. I am a<br />

ping-pong pom. In 2003, I went<br />

back to New Zealand to live. As<br />

soon as I came into Lyttelton, I<br />

thought “Oh wow, this is it. This<br />

is the place.”<br />

Initially, I couldn’t find<br />

anywhere to live, but I got a<br />

studio at number 6 and then I<br />

ended up meeting my partner.<br />

He was in the flat below my<br />

studio and we were daytime<br />

neighbours. He told me when<br />

I’d left my lights on driving<br />

through the tunnel. We’ve been<br />

mostly together and here since<br />

then.<br />

Knowing how difficult things<br />

are going to be in the future for<br />

everybody, I think being part<br />

of a good, strong, resilient and<br />

connected community is so<br />

important. Lyttelton was the<br />

community we wanted to be in.<br />

How did you become a<br />

freelance cartoonist?<br />

I am really a writer first and I<br />

enjoyed writing stories as a kid.<br />

But drawing cartoons gets you<br />

the attention. Making other kids<br />

laugh in class, I did like that.<br />

Then the other thing, I loved<br />

reading comics when I was a kid.<br />

sick child?<br />

looking after the environment<br />

So, I think I was about sixyears-old<br />

when someone gave<br />

me an old copy of a Peanuts<br />

collection, and I went: ‘Oh<br />

my god, this is a world of kids<br />

without grown-ups and I love<br />

this.’ You could just create this<br />

whole world. A picture tells a<br />

thousand worlds, but actually,<br />

you get the point across better if<br />

you have some worlds as well. It’s<br />

a great way to communicate.<br />

In 2006, I was syndicated. In<br />

the United States of America,<br />

comics are a lot bigger than here<br />

and so things like Peanuts, and<br />

Garfield and Far Side, they get<br />

syndicated, which means one<br />

company sells them to lots of<br />

newspapers all over the world.<br />

That, as a cartoonist at the<br />

time, was like winning the<br />

lottery. Back then, a syndicate<br />

got 3000 submissions a year and<br />

launched three comics. Now,<br />

they launch maybe one comic a<br />

year. Because newspapers, you<br />

know what’s happening. So it was<br />

a big deal. I got in and I’m still<br />

syndicated. It is a dual challenge<br />

of newspapers being in decline<br />

in the US and newspapers in the<br />

US tend to be read by people who<br />

are not that progressive when it<br />

comes to environmental issues<br />

and my syndicated comic Arctic<br />

Circle has an environmental<br />

theme.<br />

Arctic Circle is a daily comic,<br />

running seven days a week,<br />

which appears in about 40<br />

newspapers, mainly in the US<br />

and Canada.<br />

It has been really rewarding<br />

because I am living the dream. It<br />

was my childhood dream to be a<br />

syndicated artist. So that comic<br />

takes up half my time.<br />

I’ve been moving into writing<br />

and illustrating my own books. I<br />

self-publish, which has been an<br />

incredible learning process. I’m<br />

currently trying to write a novel.<br />

When did you write your first<br />

book and what was that about?<br />

I wrote my first book when I<br />

was 13. It was called Soggy the<br />

Dinosaur. I’ve been illustrating<br />

books for other publishers, with<br />

cartoons, for a while though. My<br />

first one The More I see of Men,<br />

the More I Love my Dog, was<br />

in 2002. My first self-published<br />

book was Hoover the Hungry Dog<br />

in 2014. I primarily create kids<br />

books and humour books.<br />

Where do you get your<br />

inspiration for your content?<br />

It depends, things come to me<br />

all the time. For the books about<br />

bullying, it was because I was<br />

bullied as a kid. I had a really<br />

happy home life but when I was<br />

at school, I had no friends. I was<br />

bullied psychologically, I was<br />

TRADITIONAL: Hallatt<br />

draws her cartoons<br />

in pencil, then inks<br />

them over with a dip<br />

pen and ink.<br />

teased. It wasn’t until we moved<br />

and I met my friends who were<br />

geek likes me. I felt really, really<br />

alone before that. My parents<br />

were wonderful but they didn’t<br />

know what to do, and I thought,<br />

“I want to write the books I<br />

would’ve liked to have read as a<br />

kid.”<br />

So I did. I get amazing<br />

feedback from kids. One boy<br />

said: ‘I love this book, I just wish<br />

it was real.’<br />

In 2008, I spent two years in<br />

Basque, Spain with Duncan<br />

(my partner). I am not good at<br />

languages so I really wanted to<br />

learn. I had been talking to some<br />

friends about the bullying books<br />

and they thought they would<br />

be perfect in Basque. A Basque<br />

publisher then picked them up<br />

and translated them. It’s a trilogy<br />

and the last book is coming out<br />

later this year. Usually, it takes a<br />

while to earn out the advance, but<br />

the first two books have already<br />

done that and now I’m earning<br />

royalties. But for me, it’s not the<br />

money, it’s never been about the<br />

money for those books, it’s the<br />

fact that kids are reading them.<br />

It’s not just the kids that are being<br />

bullied but the kids that are seeing<br />

other people being bullied and are<br />

unsure what to do about it. It’s this<br />

idea that bullying is not okay in<br />

any situation and you can stand<br />

up to it.<br />

How did Arctic Circle evolve?<br />

I saw it has featured in the New<br />

York Times.<br />

I came up with the idea for the<br />

characters in 1992, when I wasn’t<br />

quite as good at drawing and at<br />

the time, comic strips were black<br />

and white. I thought, if I base<br />

this in the Arctic, I won’t have to<br />

draw any backgrounds.<br />

Polar bears and penguins look<br />

great together, but as a scientist,<br />

this is a terrible thing to do as<br />

penguins are from Antarctica.<br />

So, I made them immigrant<br />

penguins. They talk too, it’s<br />

obviously not the real world.<br />

OUR PEOPLE<br />

‘Environmentalism really permeates my entire life’<br />

• From page 7<br />

When I relaunched the strip,<br />

environmentalism had become<br />

an intrinsic part of who I was and<br />

it was becoming more and more<br />

important. Now, it is the most<br />

important thing I think.<br />

How do you include<br />

environmentalism in your day<br />

to day life?<br />

Duncan’s pride and joy is his<br />

dirty, diesel Land-Rover. I don’t<br />

think you should dictate to<br />

anyone how to live their life but<br />

I have an electric bicycle and a<br />

regular bicycle.<br />

My electric bike is my car and<br />

I charge that via the solar energy<br />

collected from my studio. I also<br />

absolutely love the Zilch car<br />

share, borrowing the electric car<br />

from the Rec Centre. But most<br />

of the time, I walk or bike and<br />

then I love the number 28 bus. So<br />

that’s transport.<br />

Environmentalism really<br />

permeates my entire life. I think<br />

the biggest thing we can do is<br />

reduce our consumption. There<br />

is so much stuff in the world<br />

already. I gave up eating meat<br />

about a year ago.<br />

I think it’s important globally<br />

for us to eat less meat. I also<br />

garden and shop locally. I buy<br />

my groceries, first at the Farmer’s<br />

Market, second at the <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Co-op, third at Lyttelton<br />

Supervalue.<br />

I go to the supermarket once a<br />

month to get the things I can’t get<br />

TOURIST FINDS HER HOME: Hallatt first came to New Zealand in 1996 when she<br />

backpacked around the country.<br />

from those places.<br />

How has your comic practice<br />

evolved and your drawing style<br />

changed?<br />

It’s got better. Because actually,<br />

I don’t think I am very good at<br />

drawing. I’m totally faking it<br />

because I enjoy writing. I mean,<br />

I like being a cartoonist but<br />

there are lots of people probably<br />

reading this article who can draw<br />

better than me.<br />

It’s just putting the two<br />

together and doing it in a way<br />

that is engaging to people and<br />

luckily, I think I’ve improved<br />

over time.<br />

How do you manage your<br />

time as a freelancer?<br />

I think the tasks expand to<br />

fill the time available. When<br />

I’m really good and am putting<br />

out a couple of books a year,<br />

it’s because I have planned the<br />

year and then I’ve planned the<br />

quarters, then I look at each<br />

quarter and I plan the weeks.<br />

At the beginning of each week,<br />

I plan the week. That’s a skeleton<br />

that I hang everything on. At the<br />

beginning of each day, I write<br />

down how I am actually going to<br />

get today’s things done, and then<br />

I do most of it.<br />

You have to be flexible but<br />

you have to have a target, a<br />

destination because if you don’t<br />

then you will drive all over the<br />

road. You’ve got to map things<br />

out so you know where you are<br />

going.<br />

You recently ran a planting<br />

day called Adopt the Zig-Zag,<br />

tell me about that?<br />

We need to think about where<br />

everything drains because if it<br />

is going into a storm drain, it is<br />

going into the Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

At the bottom of the Zig-Zag<br />

(on Joyce St), there is a storm<br />

drain that collects the weed<br />

spray and the dirt from the park<br />

after heavy rain and then it goes<br />

into the harbour. I swim in the<br />

harbour, I love the harbour. I<br />

recently chatted to a city council<br />

contractor who looks after<br />

the park and asked if I found<br />

some people to help me and we<br />

adopted this, would they stop<br />

spraying.<br />

Their major concern was health<br />

and safety, letting loose a bunch<br />

of residents in a public space. I’m<br />

not great with bureaucracy but<br />

I know a guy who is. Hamish<br />

Fairburn from Conservation<br />

Volunteers. So I collared him at<br />

the library and explained there<br />

was this public area that I wanted<br />

to adopt. He was on board.<br />

The city council supplied<br />

the plants and mulch, Hamish<br />

supplied the high-vis vests and<br />

tools, I got the word out. Initially<br />

in the morning, it was a really<br />

revolting rainy day, Hamish<br />

looked at us and then at the 200<br />

plants and said, maybe we won’t<br />

put all of these out.<br />

We thought we will just see<br />

how much we can get done by<br />

12.30pm. But then more and<br />

more people showed up, which<br />

was just fantastic. And everyone<br />

was beaming.<br />

It was cold but we had a green<br />

chain gang passing buckets of<br />

mulch up and empty buckets<br />

down and we were done in an<br />

hour. There are plans to do more,<br />

so stay tuned.<br />

COMBATING screen time<br />

and encouraging children<br />

to connect with nature and<br />

the world around them on<br />

a deeper holistic level are<br />

the goals of an educational<br />

programme based<br />

at Orton Bradley<br />

Park.<br />

Bush Farm Education<br />

recently<br />

received $10,000<br />

from the city<br />

council Sustainability<br />

Fund, which<br />

will go towards<br />

developing a farm,<br />

food and fibre<br />

curriculum for<br />

children taking part in the<br />

programme.<br />

Founder, director and<br />

teacher Katie Earle started<br />

Bush Farm Education four<br />

years ago due to a “deep<br />

desire to offer alternative<br />

schooling to kids where<br />

they can get out of the<br />

classroom for at least one<br />

day a week.”<br />

She is “stoked” to receive<br />

the funding.<br />

“This is hopefully the<br />

start of many more grants.”<br />

The curriculum to be<br />

developed from the fund<br />

will focus on helping children<br />

understand they are<br />

part of a wider ecosystem,<br />

learning about where<br />

things such as meat and<br />

wool fibre come from.<br />

Said Earle: “I hope<br />

this will then encourage<br />

children to make different<br />

decisions about what they<br />

are choosing to eat and<br />

wear.”<br />

Earle, who originally<br />

worked as a primary<br />

school teacher, could see<br />

children increasingly<br />

struggling in large classrooms,<br />

where technology<br />

Katie Earle<br />

is integrated into every<br />

lesson.<br />

“Kids need time to be<br />

outside and to involve<br />

themselves in real-life<br />

learning,” she said.<br />

Maths and science are<br />

incorporated into the programme,<br />

such as<br />

with the harvesting<br />

of pumpkins,<br />

teaching about the<br />

living world, and<br />

spending time<br />

with animals.<br />

Bush Farm<br />

aims to provide<br />

young people with<br />

a “deep nature<br />

connection.”<br />

Earle explained<br />

the programme focuses<br />

on developing children’s<br />

sensory experiences as this<br />

empowers their learning<br />

and helps them to remember<br />

what they have learned<br />

for years to come.<br />

Students are meant<br />

to commit to at least six<br />

months of taking part in<br />

the programme but Earle<br />

said many have stayed on<br />

for several years.<br />

Isaac Fahey’s 10-year-old<br />

daughter Maddi has just<br />

started the programme.<br />

They live in Rāpaki.<br />

Fahey said he wanted<br />

Maddi to attend Bush<br />

Farm as “it’s important<br />

for kids to spend time<br />

outdoors in a learning<br />

environment where life<br />

skills can really be put to<br />

use.”<br />

Maddi said, in just two<br />

lessons, she had learned<br />

how to make a fire, work<br />

on a tractor, and about<br />

what cows eat.<br />

“I love getting out of the<br />

classroom to learn about<br />

nature and what is surrounding<br />

me,” she said.<br />

“Katie is one of the best<br />

teachers I’ve ever had.”<br />

Rod Millynn’s son<br />

Lachie is seven and has<br />

attended the programme<br />

for a year. They live in<br />

Heathcote Valley.<br />

“Lachie is a really<br />

outdoorsy kid and this<br />

provides him with an<br />

opportunity to learn about<br />

and connect with nature,”<br />

Millynn said.<br />

“He has been diagnosed<br />

with dyslexia and so he<br />

thrives on these intellectual<br />

interactions. He always<br />

comes home beaming.”<br />

Lachie said his favourite<br />

part of the programme was<br />

being in nature and learning<br />

about animals.<br />

Earle decided to base<br />

Bush Farm Education at<br />

Orton Bradley Park due to<br />

its diverse environment,<br />

with two farms, a bush<br />

area, and a flowing river.<br />

“It is the taonga at<br />

Christchurch; an amazing<br />

resource right at our doorstep.”<br />

Over the coming<br />

months, Earle said she is<br />

planning to build relationships<br />

with Christchurch<br />

schools.<br />

“This place is a resource<br />

they can use,” she said.<br />

Earle is also hoping<br />

to work with businesses<br />

that align with the programme’s<br />

values such as<br />

sustainability and well-being.<br />

“I’d love to work with<br />

businesses who could<br />

provide scholarships for<br />

young people, removing<br />

the monetary barriers for<br />

them,” she said.<br />

“To have this support<br />

would be phenomenal. If<br />

anyone is interested, please<br />

reach out.”

Hunt on for Wally<br />

REPAIRED: A historic retaining wall on Coleridge Tce in<br />

Lyttelton has been rebuilt. PHOTO: ANDREW TURNER<br />

Wall repairs completed<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE HISTORIC retaining wall<br />

on Lyttelton’s Coleridge Tce has<br />

finally been repaired.<br />

The walls, made out of volcanic<br />

rock from Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>,<br />

were damaged during the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

The city council started work<br />

to fix the wall in February this<br />

year.<br />

Work included demolition of<br />

the existing wall, construction<br />

of a new concrete retaining wall<br />

and a partial road re-construction.<br />

The contractors saved and reused<br />

the historic red rock facing<br />

from the historic wall.<br />

Said Deputy Mayor Andrew<br />

Turner, who lives in Lyttelton:<br />

“These repairs have been<br />

undertaken on many of the<br />

heritage retaining walls around<br />

Lyttelton which were damaged or<br />

destroyed in the earthquakes.<br />

“The result is a modern fully<br />

functioning and fully compliant<br />

retaining wall that also retains<br />

the red rock that is such a part<br />

of Lyttelton’s character and<br />

heritage.”<br />

Lyttelton Club which operates<br />

from a building in front of<br />

the wall shared images of the<br />

completed wall on its Facebook<br />

page.<br />

“It sure is great to see it now<br />

repaired and looking so good,”<br />

the organisation said.<br />

A WHERE’S Wally scavenger<br />

hunt is encouraging Heathcote<br />

Valley residents to get outside,<br />

have some fun and keep active<br />

this lockdown.<br />

On Sunday, Anna Marsden<br />

and her three children put up<br />

15 pictures of the red and white<br />

striped T-shirt wearing, glasses-adorned<br />

Wally.<br />

Marsden was inspired by<br />

Katie Wallis, an Australian<br />

school teacher she follows on<br />

Instagram.<br />

“Katie sews and I sew, hence I<br />

follow her for inspiration,” said<br />

Marsden.<br />

“I saw she had created a<br />

Where’s Wally scavenger hunt<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 />

MISCELLANY<br />

Tania Bostock<br />

If you could change one thing<br />

in NZ would it be and why?<br />

NZ is certainly not a utopia and<br />

there are many things that I<br />

would change.<br />

I think there is this idea that<br />

we are a post gender and post<br />

racial society when neither of<br />

those things are true and I would<br />

like to see more social advocacy<br />

and more acknowledgement of<br />

the problems we do have in areas<br />

of gender and race.<br />

I was fortunate enough to<br />

go to an all-girls school so the<br />

idea of people still being sexist<br />

was absolutely foreign to me.<br />

However, I’ve come to learn that<br />

sexism is subtle and a lot of the<br />

historic ideas around what it<br />

means to be a man or a woman<br />

or whatever are still super<br />

prevalent particularly in regard<br />

to sexual assault.<br />

Hamish Southcott and Tania Bostock first exhibited<br />

together at Little River Gallery in 2014 and since have<br />

had a number of duo shows. Ben Reid joins them in<br />

‘Miscellany’ after a five year exhibiting hiatus at Little<br />

River Gallery.<br />

Hamish Southcott seeks to create well-crafted,<br />

beautiful pieces of art that highlight the inherent<br />

beauty of reclaimed materials. Recently his works<br />

explore the human influence on New Zealand’s rich<br />

and diverse natural landscape.<br />

Tania Bostock is drawn to texture and contrast. Her<br />

process consists of straightening and perfecting, then<br />

pushing the paint in a freer, less controlled manner<br />

working in multiple layers on bold geometric shapes.<br />

Ben Reid is a Canterbury based printmaker<br />

whose interest lies in the fragile relationship that<br />

New Zealanders have with the natural world.<br />

The complexities are beautifully explored in the<br />

technically challenging medium of print.<br />

But it also means a lot to me that the<br />

community here is so supportive, and I<br />

would love to be able to give back in the<br />

future.<br />

What would you like to be doing in<br />

10 years time?<br />

Hopefully, working in an area that<br />

I’m passionate about. I haven’t thought<br />

too much about it. I don’t like to put too<br />

much pressure on it because things can<br />

change so quickly.<br />

What is the biggest challenge facing<br />

people of your generation and why?<br />

I think the biggest challenge is how<br />

to adapt to a rapidly changing world<br />

environment.<br />

There have been so many political,<br />

social and environmental changes. As<br />

well as this there has also been a big<br />

shift in employment opportunities.<br />

Being able to adapt to change has<br />

become essential for our generation.<br />

What is the biggest challenge facing<br />

humanity and why?<br />

Honestly, I think there is a lot of<br />

challenges facing humanity and they’re<br />

all serious. Climate change has a huge<br />

impact on everyone, and we can see the<br />

effects of it every day.<br />

I think it’s one of the biggest<br />

challenges because we can still turn it<br />

around, but it means globally everyone<br />

is going to have to change the way they<br />

live.<br />

If you could change one thing in NZ,<br />

what would it be and why?<br />

Mental health services. I think that<br />

more funding needs to go towards them<br />

so they’re more accessible to everyone.<br />

Sarah Cody<br />

Mandell<br />

Health sciences<br />

scholarship<br />

What are you<br />

aiming to do when<br />

you graduate?<br />

After completing<br />

my undergraduate<br />

degree I am hoping<br />

to continue my<br />

studies and complete a phd degree<br />

in psychology focusing my thesis<br />

around the role of micronutrients and<br />

macronutrients in mental illness.<br />

However, I also have an ambition to<br />

be considered for one of New Zealand’s<br />

clinical psychology programmes at<br />

some stage in my career.<br />

What does the scholarship mean for<br />

you?<br />

This scholarship allows me to avoid<br />

financial stress and consequently I<br />

am able to reach my full potential and<br />

dedicate my time and energy towards<br />

my studies.<br />

In addition it drives me knowing I have<br />

support from my community in which<br />

hope to be working with in the future.<br />

What would you like to be doing in<br />

10 years time?<br />

In 10 years time I picture myself<br />

building my career either working<br />

in the health sector as a mental<br />

health practitioner/health care<br />

professional and placing an emphasis<br />

on the increased need for available<br />

mental health resources and support<br />

throughout the nation.<br />

Alternatively I would love to undergo<br />

further research in the growing field of<br />

nutritions role in mental illness. In addition<br />

I hope to be financially stable, surrounded<br />

by loved ones and in good health.<br />

What is the biggest challenge facing<br />

people of your generation and why?<br />

The biggest challenge facing my<br />

generation is the extreme potency of<br />

social media within our everyday lives.<br />

The integration of the ‘tool’ is<br />

associated with several mental health<br />

issues and is an extreme facilitator of<br />

abuse, isolation, social skill degradation,<br />

feelings of inadequacy and has the<br />

potential to create a false reality along<br />

with carrying an addictive nature.<br />

What is the biggest challenge facing<br />

humanity and why?<br />

The biggest challenge facing humanity<br />

today is break down of the global<br />

community with the rise of nationalism<br />

in which countries isolate themselves.<br />

In turn this prevents the ability to<br />

progress with global agreement and<br />

decisions regarding pressing current<br />

issues such as human induced climate<br />

change, Covid-19, population growth<br />

and food insecurity.<br />

If you could change one thing in NZ,<br />

what would it be and why?<br />

One thing I would change about<br />

New Zealand is the low accessibility of<br />

funded mental health care.<br />

I believe mental health professionals<br />

should be far more available and<br />

communities should receive further<br />

education on detaching the stigma<br />

associated with mental illness and<br />

seeking help.<br />

This is due to many lacking a strong<br />

support network who should be able to<br />

receive the care they deserve.

Pupils’ cards a fundraiser for school<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

COLOURFUL cards created<br />

by children are being sold as<br />

a school fundraiser.<br />

At the end of each year,<br />

Lyttelton Primary School<br />

takes its year 8 pupils to<br />

Wellington, a trip that costs<br />

about $500 a person.<br />

Teacher Rachel Cummins<br />

said it is a way to celebrate<br />

the pupils finishing primary<br />

school and acknowledging<br />

their input as seniors.<br />

The yearly trips began in<br />

2015 and were also a way<br />

to show pupils a “city experience,”<br />

with Christchurch<br />

still recovering from the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Cummins said, while in<br />

Wellington, they visit places<br />

such as Parliament, Te Papa,<br />

and Weta Workshop, “the<br />

whole shebang.”<br />

Due to the costs involved,<br />

the school always raised a<br />

significant amount of money<br />

from fundraising to pay for<br />

it.<br />

This year, Ange Hyland,<br />

a parent of Tyler, one of the<br />

year 8 pupils, suggested<br />

they design cards to sell as a<br />

fundraiser.<br />

She is the manager of<br />

Printable Solutions and<br />

offered to provide the card<br />

materials, printing and marketing<br />

for the project.<br />

FUN FUNDRAISER:<br />

Manager of Printable<br />

Solutions and mother<br />

of year 8 pupil Tyler<br />

at Lyttelton Primary<br />

School, helped the<br />

group make cards to sell<br />

for their school trip to<br />

Wellington.<br />

The pupils came up with<br />

the card designs themselves.<br />

There are three packs of 10<br />

cards, grouped in themes of<br />

animals, birdlife and nature,<br />

and birthdays.<br />

Said Cummins: “I think<br />

this is a great idea. Our kids<br />

love art and Ange has provided<br />

them with a platform<br />

to express this creativity.”<br />

Cards can be purchased<br />

from the school or at gift<br />

shop the Lyttel Kiwi; a 10-<br />

pack costs $20.<br />

Speakers<br />

share<br />

their stories<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

COMMUNITY Conversations,<br />

a new weekly speaker series held<br />

in Lyttelton, is providing people<br />

with the opportunity to share<br />

stories, learn something new and<br />

connect with others.<br />

There have been three speakers<br />

since the project’s beginnings<br />

in <strong>August</strong>, discussing a diverse<br />

range of topics.<br />

The events are organised by<br />

Lyttelton Timebank as part of<br />

Project Lyttelton and are held<br />

on Tuesday evenings at Eruption<br />

Brewing on London St.<br />

Timebank co-ordinator Jill<br />

Larking said the speakers so far<br />

had been “really amazing.”<br />

“It has been quite cool to see the<br />

positive response from all the different<br />

people attending,” she said.<br />

“The work at Project Lyttelton is<br />

all about offering the community<br />

opportunities to connect and this<br />

seems to be a winning formula.”<br />

The series began with a conversation<br />

with Duncan Wilcox.<br />

He shared his story on the<br />

founding of Lyttelton Farmer’s<br />

Market.<br />

The next conversation is set to<br />

be with a speaker from charitable<br />

trust Community Energy Action,<br />

Golf production shows no sign of slowing<br />

GET YOUR head around this –<br />

Volkswagen’s Golf has reached 47<br />

years in production and is now in<br />

its eighth generation.<br />

Only a few nameplates see that<br />

kind of distance, those that have<br />

carved out a healthy reputation in<br />

the marketplace.<br />

According to Volkswagen, it<br />

has produced over 45 million<br />

Golfs from production sites, not<br />

just in Germany but scattered in<br />

plants globally, and there’s no sign<br />

that production will end anytime<br />

soon.<br />

Golf 8 has just landed in New<br />

Zealand and at present it is<br />

available here in three variants<br />

– two TSi models and a GTi.<br />

I’m sure the high performance<br />

Golf R will find its way here as<br />

production comes on stream and<br />

supply lines are generated to 100<br />

per cent. The two TSi models<br />

consist of the base specification<br />

$37,990 variant which is<br />

designated Life, and the R-Line<br />

model as tested, it adds $10k. For<br />

interest’s sake, the GTi is listed at<br />

$61,490.<br />

The R-Line evaluation car<br />

lived up to all expectation. It<br />

is the quintessential five-door<br />

hatchback that makes you feel<br />

particularly good to be in.<br />

Volkswagen has been<br />

careful not to depart from the<br />

fundamental concept of Golf, it’s<br />

exactly what you’d expect from a<br />

generational change, the driveline<br />

has been further refined, the<br />

exterior style has been sharpened,<br />

while the interior has gone very<br />

high-tech.<br />

In terms of the latter, even<br />

though the electronic functions<br />

are vast they are minimalistic<br />

and intuitive. There’s a strong<br />

presence of haptic switches and<br />

buttons, fingertip controls that<br />

make understanding and working<br />

the controls simple.<br />

The entire dash panel and<br />

layout is clean and fresh, in<br />

keeping with the rest of the<br />

ultra-modern interior. When<br />

you are inside the Golf 8 you feel<br />

part of the vehicle, and at home<br />

with its ergonomics, it has that<br />

unmistakeable European feel.<br />

Comfort levels are also high<br />

and space for five adults is far<br />

from compromised. The Golf<br />

over the years hasn’t dramatically<br />

increased in size, so you still<br />

have that compact feel yet know<br />

there’s enough room on board<br />

for the time when it will be full to<br />

capacity.<br />

I have a friend who has the<br />

previous generation model and<br />

she has often had a full load onboard,<br />

that’s something you can<br />

do easily with Golf, it makes good<br />

use of its proportions.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a 1.4-litre<br />

ULTRA-MODERN: Comprehensive but minimalistic display<br />

and control systems are intuitive to use.<br />

VOLKSWAGEN GOLF TSI: Eight-generation model is now available in Kiwi market.<br />

turbocharged four-cylinder<br />

engine that is pretty much a<br />

carryover. It’s a real honey in<br />

terms of how it operates, it is<br />

smooth, quiet and efficient.<br />

Volkswagen claim power outputs<br />

of 110kW and <strong>25</strong>0Nm, the<br />

secret to its keen performance<br />

are the areas where power and<br />

torque are developed, both low<br />

down at 5000rpm and 1500rpm<br />

respectively. Consequently, there<br />

is strong boost from take-off and<br />

no drop-off of power through<br />

to the redline, all of the time the<br />

engine is singing sweetly, it is well<br />

isolated and shows no sign of<br />

breathlessness.<br />

Drive is carried through<br />

an eight-speed automatic<br />

transmission that has paddle<br />

shifters if you wish to manually<br />

work up and down the ratios.<br />

Not only is the driveline such<br />

a strong performer – 0-100km in<br />

8.7sec – but it is also a fuel miser.<br />

Volkswagen claim a combined<br />

cycle average of 5.8-litres per<br />

100km. That sits well with the<br />

readout during my time with the<br />

TSi, it was constantly listing at<br />

7l/100km with 4l/100km showing<br />

instantaneously at 100km/h<br />

(engine speed 1800rpm).<br />

When I mentioned that<br />

European feel from inside the car,<br />

that presence is also carried on<br />

through movement. It feels firmly<br />

• Fuel usage – 5.8l/100km<br />

connected to the road and has<br />

handling that has you thinking<br />

you are driving something far<br />

more exotic.<br />

Drive is channelled to the front<br />

wheels, and that has been a Golf<br />

fundamental since day one. The<br />

suspension is a mix of struts<br />

up front with an independent<br />

multi-link rear. The combination<br />

provides wheel freedom and<br />

adequate suspension movement.<br />

The spring and damper<br />

rates are exactly what you<br />

would expect, and want, just<br />

enough firming to contain body<br />

movement along with the ability<br />

to tackle the hits from uneven<br />

road surfaces.<br />

Providing the grip are<br />

beautiful Bridgestone tyres,<br />

at 2<strong>25</strong>/40 x 18in the profile is<br />

such that there is just enough<br />

sidewall flex to maintain onboard<br />

comfort, along with the<br />

footprint to promote feedback to<br />

the driver.<br />

I took the evaluation car on<br />

the inland scenic route (SH72)<br />

through to Glenroy from<br />

Darfield, the Golf dispenses<br />

distances with ease and is<br />

a competent handler when<br />

the wide, flowing corners are<br />

presented. In the tight stuff,<br />

steerage is sharp and direct, the<br />

Golf almost dances through<br />

the twisty bits, it is athletic and<br />

nimble, providing the driver with<br />

a great deal of satisfaction.<br />

As an everyday drive, my five<br />

days with the evaluation car<br />

involved the urban commute and<br />

I’ve deemed it the quintessential<br />

city car, it dawdles the traffic with<br />

a smooth operating manner and<br />

doesn’t tax the occupants in any<br />

way.<br />

That’s why Golf has done so<br />

well globally, it is a car that does<br />

nothing wrong but everything<br />

right. In R-Line form it has those<br />

extra bits that you could say gives<br />

it a more luxurious feel.<br />

However, I’d be saving the $10k<br />

and pick up the Life variant, it<br />

just seems such a bargain and<br />

would certainly make you feel<br />

like a million dollars every time<br />

you are in it.<br />
