surf lifesaving stalwart

in Surf Lifesaving New

Zealand national awards

of excellence. Today

reporter John Cosgrove

talks to Mt Pleasant

resident Roger Smith,

who was awarded a 50-

year badge for his service

to the North Beach club

THE ONLY TIME Roger Smith

ever feared for his life was when

another club’s surf boat crashed

into his during a surf carnival.

“We were in big, big waves at

the nationals and while our boat

was in a good spot for speed

between two waves, I watched as

another boat tried to come in over

the top of us.

“Those boats were big and

heavy and required a lot of skill

to use them, especially in rough

surf.

“If they dumped you out, you

hoped like hell you came out of it

alive,” he said.

Old craft skills on show at festival

BANKS PENINSULA is hosting

a range of exciting events at the

Christchurch Heritage Festival.

The theme this year is People

and Place – our stories revealed.

City council head of urban

design, regeneration and

heritage Carolyn Ingles said it’s a

celebration of the diverse people

who have made their home on

the peninsula over time.

“There is a rich programme

of events with opportunities to

explore some of the fascinating

stories behind the places and

people of Banks Peninsula.”

A highlight will be the

Craftmasters’ festival of heritage

crafts. Skills such as printing,

blacksmithing and bread making

once essential to 19 th- century

peninsula life but now in danger

of dying out will be revisited

at Okains Bay Museum over

Labour Weekend.

New to the festival are tours of

the newly-developed Ōhinetahi

Geosite on Sunday. There will be

interactive displays at Allandale

Reserve and guided walks along

the foreshore track using new

interpretation panels.

Visitors can gain new insight

into the early settlers who

established the first formal

European settlement in the

South Island with a tour of

Akaroa’s cemeteries on Sunday

and October 24. A visit to

Akaroa Museum during the

two-week festival will reveal

what archaeology can tell us

about the lives of people who

lived in the township during the

19 th- century.

The history of recreation on

Lyttelton Harbour is explored

in an exhibition of photos at

Adventure playgrounds, skate parks, archery, golf, trampolining and gaming competitions were just

some of the activities on offer at the Sumner-based Fuse holiday programme. Fuse manager Gareth

Davies said the activities have been well supported and were running full most days in spite of

Covid-related restrictions. He said the children loved all the activities so far but especially enjoyed

making their own pizzas during their visit to Fire&Slice Woodfired Pizzeria on Monday. Fuse is an

initiative of the Shoreline Youth Trust, a non-profit organisation set up over 20 years ago to provide

community services for the young people living in the Sumner, Redcliffs, and Mt Pleasant areas.

Davies said they hope to hold an event to mark the anniversary later this year.

‘I often saw the odd shark or two out there’

• From page 1

Fortunately, the other boat

went under Roger’s boat and all

aboard were safe.

For the former businessman,

to be awarded a 50-year badge

at the recent Surf Lifesaving

New Zealand national awards

of excellence, was a humbling

experience.

“I was surprised to be named

as a recipient, I’m not finished

yet as I still think I have much to

offer the sport,” he said.

Since he was a teenager Smith

(now 67) has been heavily involved

in both surf lifesaving and

rugby.

A former past president at both

the North Beach Surf Lifesaving

Club and the Shirley Rugby

Club, Smith said he still helps

out where he can on both club

committees.

“I love working behind the

scenes, and do what I can for the

good of the clubs. I feel it’s good

for any sporting club to have a

few old heads in the mix bringing

their experience to the club.”

Smith was 18 when he trained

for his first season as a lifeguard

at North Beach.

“It was a magnificent time back

then, a wonderful way to be part

of something that helped the

community.

“Back then it was the amateur

era and membership at surf clubs

was very strong.

“There were surf carnivals

everywhere and we used to travel

far and wide to get to the whole

day affairs.”

He recalls many great trips, as

all the clubs seem to always be

on the same ferries at the same

time, so there were many stories

he said he could tell, but they

wouldn’t be suitable for readers.

However, he did recall one trip

to the nationals aboard the TEV

Maori interisland ferry: “Some

members partied too hard on the

day sailing to Wellington so they

decided to sleep it off in their car

but woke the next morning to

find they were back at Lyttelton,

wharfies had left their car aboard

and they had done a round trip

overnight.

“North Beach was a wonderful

place to spend every weekend

during the summer, my family

grew up around me on those

beaches.”

His sons Dan and Ryan followed

him into the sport.

“In those days we did a lot a

fundraising every weekend in the

Brighton Mall, and we felt we had

ownership of the club.”

In the 1970s all rescues were

undertaken by four-man belt and

line teams, they also used surf

skis, canoes and big heavy surf

boats.

“You would be rostered on

a patrol team of five to six

members and on days when the

beaches were crowded you not

SKILLS:

Roger Smith,

second

from left,

loves the

camaraderie

of surf

lifesaving,

only watched what was happening

between the flags but also

around the edges.”

He said patrolling is more

about preventative actions rather

than actual rescues.

“You had to concentrate,

look for the telltale signs that

swimmers were starting to get

into trouble by drifting outside

the flags, or out of their depth in

the waves, and then go and help

them out.

“We tried to stop things happening

before they got worse.”

Rips were the cause of many

callouts and he still remembers

his first big rescue.

“One day a rip just developed

out of nowhere, one minute the

surf was okay then suddenly

seven to eight people were being

whisked away, everybody jumped

in to help out and we quickly got

everyone out safely.”

He said it’s only natural that

people panic when a rip grabs.

“They should remember that

all the sea is doing is going out

along a ditch, just as quickly as

it appears and drags you out it

also quickly deposits you on a

sandbank behind the breakers,

but sadly people panic and panic

kills.”

His advice – just float with the

rip and hold your hand up.

“Usually we would only swim

about 100 to 200m out beyond

the surf but on the boats, I often

saw the odd shark or two out

there.

“People would be surprised

that there is more wildlife than

they think out there beyond the

surf.”

Smith experienced the many

different technological changes

the sport went through, from the

introduction of the inflatable rescue

boat which revolutionised the

speed of rescues and capabilities

of clubs, to handheld radios aiding

the communication between

crews and shore.

He said the recent crop of

reality surf programmes have

helped raise awareness of water

safety, but he reminds people to

always swim between the flags

and watch the surf conditions.

Welcoming refugees with gift packs

KIND-hearted Canterbury

humanitarians are helping

with the integration of Afghani

refugees into New Zealand

society.

A group of 250 or so refugees

will soon become Kiwis

following their forced escape

from a war-torn land.

Jo Bailey is the co-founder of

Uniting Canterbury Women,

a group that formed after the

Christchurch terror attacks on

March 15, 2019. The group is

now planning to deliver gift

packs to the refugees.

The small but dedicated group,

brings women of different

cultures, ethnicities and religions

together.

Bailey and the group have

created a series of projects

since the initial focus on

those impacted by the terror

attacks. The most recent,

supported by a Givealittle

crowdfunding campaign,

has been to raise money for

individual welcome packs for the

Afghan refugees.

Bailey has been working

with a group including Ryman

Healthcare sales adviser Anthea

Johnson, who is also her

neighbour.

Ryman will pay for the

freighting of about 250 welcome

packages to the refugees, living

for now in Immigration NZ’s

Mangere Refugee Resettlement

Centre. Many arrived with

just the clothes on their backs

following a Taliban military

offensive.

“They’ve been through such

trauma, absolute hell,” Bailey

said.

“They’ve left family members

behind, I mean it’s horrific.

They’ve been through terrible

times to get here.”

“(We want to demonstrate)

that we care, that they’re wanted,

that they’re loved here. And we

wanted to make sure they had

some lovely things to remind

them of home and also welcome

them to New Zealand,” Bailey

said.

Bailey said she was in part

inspired by Christchurch café

operator Zhara Hussaini.

Hussaini had arrived in

Christchurch at the age of 12,

as a refugee, and has spoken

publicly about the warmth of

CARING: Jo

Afghanistan.

Kiwis she experienced since her

arrival.

Bailey reached out to Hussaini

following the March 15 attacks,

and subsequent vigils. The

two found common ground

and, with four others, formed

Uniting Canterbury Women. It

helped that Hussaini was already

an advocate for the Afghan

community.

Said Bailey: “I just wanted

to continue on the feelings of

goodwill (towards minorities)

that were happening in the

community. Like all disasters,

once tragedies (dissipate) people

go back to their normal lives.

“When Zahra arrived in

Christchurch at the age of 12, she

spoke no English. Today, her life

is incredibly full as an advocate

for the Afghan community,

an interpreter, student, and

a restaurant owner. She is an

inspirational young woman.”

The packs includes teas, spices,

Linden Leaves products, Aroha’s

Way (a children’s book) and

backpacks. Other items such

as silk krama, or scarves, made

by a Cambodian group could

prove important to the Afghani

women.

“So effectively the women can

wear these as hijab,” Bailey said.

“Everyone will get something

really special, which is really

nice.”

THE IMPACT of cannabis use

among expectant mothers is

the focus of ground-breaking

research led by a genetics expert

at Canterbury University.

Funded by the Canterbury

Medical Research Foundation,

the year-long study aims to determine

whether using the drug

during pregnancy can lead to

health effects already associated

with tobacco.

Dr Amy Osborne, a senior lecturer

in the School of Biological

Sciences, has already established

that heavy cannabis use has an

impact on human DNA, with

the effect stronger in people who

also smoke cigarettes.

That research, published in

May last year, has been followed

by this US-inspired probe to discover

if a woman’s cannabis use

can alter their offspring’s DNA.

“We know smoking tobacco

during pregnancy is harmful,

but the problem is a lot of people

are using cannabis for morning

sickness because they think it’s

safe,” Osborne said.

“In the US it’s also being

used as an opioid replacement

therapy for pregnant women, a

replacement for hard and more

illicit drugs: ‘You’re not going

to do heroin while you’re

pregnant, but here, have some

cannabis’.”

Osborne said some of the

research Stateside assessing the

effects of cannabis use during

pregnancy revealed some behavioural

impacts similar to

tobacco.

Her latest study, which starts

this month, dovetails with DNA

data already available through

the Christchurch Health and Development

Study, an investigation

which started more than 40

years ago and originally included

1265 people.

Osborne has already sourced

DNA data from cannabis users

among that cohort, CMRF

The UK data is vital because it

their children because the CHDS

parents.

“We can use the UK data to inform

what we’d be looking for in

to get a better idea of what’s happening

at the molecular level,”

Osborne said.

“In New Zealand our sample

sizes are a lot smaller so if

we want to statistically show

associations – and it’s all about

statistical power in genetics –

the more samples you have the

more likely you are to detect

something.”

Ultimately, Osborne would

like to develop a mine of information

from pregnant New

Zealanders.

“It would be amazing. We haven’t

explored that as an option

yet but depending on what we

find it may be that’s naturally

where our research goes. Then

again that requires clinicians,

epidemiologists, nurses and a lot

of people recruiting as well,” she

said.

Osborne emphasised the

study was impartial regarding

cannabis.

“We’re not trying to say

‘cannabis is bad for you or

cannabis is good for you’.

It’s really important to make

the distinction that this is

basic biology, basic biological

research,” she said.

“What we’re trying to do is understand

a little bit more of the

impacts it (cannabis use) might

be having.

“Whether that’s the detrimental

impacts that come with

long-term use or whether it’s

the medicinal and therapeutic

impacts, we just don’t know.”

Osborne said while cannabis

use can be detrimental for heavy

users, it could be beneficial

regarding pain management, the

treatment of chronic illnesses

and end of life care.

“If we can put some

empirical meat on the bone

and understand a bit about the

molecular pathways that may

or may not be involved we can

start to understand a lot more,

she said.

Edith Cavell Corner

Edith Cavell Lifecare manager Scott was delighted share with us that

Registered Nurse Aakriti Neupane who just completed her NETP

programme was given feedback from the nursing council that her

portfolio was excellent, and she has been approved as Competent

under PDRP.

“Sadly for Aakriti she wasn’t able to attend any graduation ceremonies

both for her Bachelor of Nursing degree completed last year or her recent

celebration ceremony planned for 6th Sept on completion of NETP due

to Covid lockdowns”, says Scott. To compensate, Edith Cavell held a

morning tea to present her with her NETP completion certificate attended

by her partner and her sister with her mother and father included via zoom

in Nepal. Her mother is a very experienced, senior nurse in Nepal and her

sister is completing her Bachelor of Nursing degree here in Christchurch

this year. Maria Crone, Clinical Services Manager at Edith Cavell says they

had an opportunity to nominate NETP nurses for one of 3 regional awards.

“I nominated Aakriti for the Excellence in Professional Practice award and

she won!” she says. She surprised her and her family by announcing the

award at the morning tea.

NETP Canterbury Region prize for Excellence in professional practice:

Commitment to consolidation of critical thinking, clinical reasoning,

challenge and influence practice, higher level of professionalism

Maria and Aakriti outside Edith Cavell Lifecare.

Edith Cavell NETP graduate’s

success comes with a top prize!

Maria says I was contacted by Rebecca Heyward who is the Nurse

Coordinator, Nursing Workforce Development – Aged Residential Care for

CDHB. Her words were, “I wanted to get in touch with you - the reviewers

have reviewed who the prize winners should be from the nominations

received and decided that Aakriti is a very deserving recipient of the

Excellence in Professional Nursing award - I read her nomination as well

and it was exceptional, fantastic she’s done so well this year. Many thanks

Maria and all your team around her for supporting her and giving her the

right environment to thrive”

Maria and all at Edith Cavell are very proud of Aakriti and the team of

Registered Nurses who supported her in her first year of practice.

Treasures from the past: The Colonists’ Hall

THE OLDEST public library

in Canterbury was originally

based in one of the Canterbury

Association’s Immigration

Barracks on lower Oxford St that

housed colonial settlers bound for

the newly-purchased Canterbury

Plains.

The Reading Room was set

aside on June 30, 1851, just six

months into the venture with an

initial collection of around 500

volumes, apparently gifted by

newly-arrived colonists with too

much baggage.

The librarian, a Mr Calvert,

organised the collection and the

annual subscription service of

one guinea that included Canterbury’s

first newspaper, the

Lyttelton Times.

The Colonists’ Society was

established the following year in

1852 and took over the running

of the Reading Room, expanding

its collection and offering

subscribers access to newspapers

from across the Australasian colonies,

as well as The London Times.

The library became a social

centre of the bustling port town

of Lyttelton and in 1867 the Colonists’

Hall was built to house the

growing collection and service

the community’s insatiable appetite

for information from around

the British Empire. Thus on November

22, 1867, the library and

its Reading Room took over the

hall’s entire ground floor, and the

librarian, a Mr W Godfrey, dutifully

kept it open from 10am-4pm

and 6-10pm daily.

The Lyttelton Borough School

was built next door in 1875 and

made good use of the library and

study facilities for its students

and teachers alike for the next 27

years.

The Colonist’s Society managed

the library’s affairs for

two decades until, in 1887, the

Lyttelton Borough Council took

over and established the Lyttelton

Library under the Public Library

Act 1869.

The Colonists’

Hall on the

left sits beside

the Lyttelton

Borough

School in the

1890s. (Far

right) – The

hall in a state

of disrepair.

The Colonist’s Hall, nonetheless,

remained the site for the

library for another 15 years before

it finally outgrew the building and

was moved to the corner of Oxford

St and Sumner Rd in 1902.

The old Colonist’s Hall

remained in use for several

decades after, until it fell into

disrepair and was demolished in

the 1940s. As for Canterbury’s

oldest library, now a venerable

170-year-old institution, you can

of course find it on the corner

of London and Canterbury Sts

where it has been since April

1999.

The Women of Pearl Island

by Polly Crosby

A darkly beautiful dual-timeline novel with a captivating

mystery, for fans of Diane Setterfield and Kiran Millwood

Hargrave

’Like a surreal cabinet of curiosities – haunting, eerie,

evocative’ Bridget Collins, Sunday Times bestselling author

of The Binding

When Tartelin Brown accepts a job with the reclusive Marianne

Stourbridge, she finds herself on a wild island with a mysterious history.

Tartelin is tasked with hunting butterflies for Marianne’s research. But she

quickly uncovers something far more intriguing than the curious creatures

that inhabit the landscape.

Because the island and Marianne share a remarkable history, and what

happened all those years ago has left its scars, and some terrible secrets.

As Tartelin pieces together Marianne’s connection to the island, she must

confront her own reasons for being there. Can the two women finally face

up to the painful memories that bind them so tightly to the past?

Atmospheric and deeply emotional, The Women of Pearl Island is the

captivating novel from the author of The Book of Hidden Wonders

Over My Dead Body

by Jeffrey Archer

An unputdownable story of murder, revenge and betrayal from international

number one bestseller Jeffrey Archer. THE CLOCK IS TICKING IN THIS

ROLLERCOASTER RIDE OF A THRILLER…

In London, the Metropolitan Police set up a new Unsolved Murders Unit – a

cold case squad – to catch the criminals nobody else can.

In Geneva, millionaire art collector Miles Faulkner – convicted of forgery and

theft – was pronounced dead two months ago. So why is his unscrupulous

lawyer still representing a dead client?

On a luxury liner en route to New York, the battle for power within a wealthy

dynasty is about to turn to murder.

And at the heart of all three investigations are Detective Chief Inspector

William Warwick, rising star of the Met, and ex-undercover operative Ross

Hogan, brought in from the cold.

But can they catch the killers before it’s too late?

Suzuki Swift hybrid shows promise

IT’S TAKEN some time for the

Suzuki Motor Corporation to

enter the hybrid market.

Well, that doesn’t surprise me,

Suzuki has long built smallish

cars with small capacity, fuel efficient

engines, even their largest

were relative fuel misers.

That being the case, there was

no rush for Suzuki to go one step

further into the electric/hybrid

market, anyone who owns a Suzuki

will tell you how inexpensive

they are to run.

However, a hybrid has arrived

here and it comes in the

form of the Swift, and it’s fair

to say Suzuki is treading carefully,

the Swift hybrid can only

be described as a mild hybrid

– don’t think Toyota Prius, the

hybrid system is more like you

would find on European cars

such as those from BMW and

Mercedes-Benz.

In mechanical terms, Suzuki’s

system utilises an electric motor

to assist the engine in a parallel

configuration, it is powered

by a lithium-ion battery that is

charged as the car decelerates and

brakes, there is no electric-only

mode of propulsion involved.

While cruising, the battery

helps power all of the additional

electrical systems such as safety

features, air conditioning, Bluetooth

and smartphone connectivity,

which means the engine

spends more of its energy driving

the wheels.

There are a multitude of display

graphics which indicate to the

driver how the system is operating

so that he or she can get

maximum fuel economy benefits.

The result of all of this is

Suzuki’s claimed 4.1-litre per

100km combined cycle fuel

usage average. That compares to

the standard Swift which has a

4.8l/100km figure, so there are

gains to be made there; however,

there is a little trade-off, the Swift

hybrid requires premium fuel

which is more expensive than the

standard 91 octane.

Nevertheless, if you are keen on

cutting down emissions and like

that bottom line of 4.1l then the

hybrid does have benefits, and

that figure is very achievable.

During my time with the

evaluation car the fuel usage

readout was constantly listing

around 5.2l/100km with around

4l/100km registering instantaneously

at 100km/h (engine speed

1900rpm).

Powering the Swift hybrid is a

four-cylinder engine of 1197cc.

It is a smooth, quiet engine

which cuts out at idle and restarts

automatically when acceleration

is requested – almost without

notice such is the refinement that

has gone into the mechanical

elements.

The 1.2-litre unit is rated at

61kW and 107Nm, the latter available

at just 2800rpm which means

there is available torque on offer,

SMOOTH: Design-wise, the Swift is a popular shape.

SUZUKI SWIFT HYBRID: European specification and placement of controls.

and if you add in the moderate

amount of electrical assistance

acceleration is more than satisfactory.

A standstill to 100km/h time

of 11.5sec is possible, along with a

7.7sec time to make an 80-120km/

h highway overtake.

Drive is carried through a

continuously variable automatic

transmission. By sheer nature of

its simplicity it, too, helps promote

fuel efficiency. The change in ratio

is seamless, providing an overall

feeling of smoothness. There is

also a sport mode should the driver

like the revs hunting higher.

I tried to replicate the type of

driving the Swift hybrid would

most likely be subjected to on a

daily basis – a suburb to city commute,

a trip to the supermarket,

and a weekend excursion. There

are no surprises here, the Swift in

all forms functions well in those

situations. The hybrid hasn’t lost

sight of the Swift concept, an

easy-to-drive model with as much

practicality as you can get in a

small car. See, at just 3.8m, the

Swift makes good use of its compact

proportions, it is a five-seater

at a pinch.

On the open road it is quiet and

composed when presented with a

tight corner or two. The Swift sits

somewhat low at 1.5m so there

isn’t a lot of body movement, even

though the rear suspension is a

tube beam type there is enough

• Price – Suzuki Swift hybrid

Limited, $28,500

• Dimensions – Length,

3845mm; width, 1735mm;

height, 1495mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1197cc, 61kW,

107Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.5sec

• Fuel usage – 4.1l/100km

suspension movement to promote

a controlled ride even when road

ripples threaten balance.

Interestingly, the hybrid is built

in Japan but is destined mostly

for the European market. That

being the case, there are a few

little quirks the traditional Suzuki

owner would need to adjust to. For

one, the indicator and wiper stalks

have been transposed, and why

European buyers like rear manual

window winders eludes me, but

that’s what you get in Swift hybrid.

Also, the hybrid model is sans sat

nav but there is Apple Car Play

and Android Auto.

As with the entire Swift

range, the hybrid gets a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rating. That’s achieved

by an abundance of safety features

such as an advanced forward

detection system which mitigates

the chance of a collision, there are

also other clever features such as

adaptive cruise control, rear view

camera and rear cross traffic alert.

The Swift hybrid lists at $26,990

in standard form, the evaluation

car was a Limited specification

model and it adds $15100, $2000

if you want two-tone paint.

These prices compare to

$20,750 for the Swift GL ($22,990

auto) non-hybrid. I guess that

difference is a matter of equation

as to whether the fuel saving

benefits going forward, outweigh

the extra cost.

Suzuki has a fairly extensive

model line-up, I will be interested

to see how far the company takes

its hybrid technology and whether

it can be adapted to other

engine configurations.

In the interim, if you want

something just that little bit different

in your Swift purchase then

the hybrid model still represents

all those traditional Suzuki values

but with the thought you are

doing just a little bit to reduce

emissions and benefiting the

environment.

To top it off, there’s also the

benefits of the local dealership’s

tempting maintenance

programme – all in all there is

lot to consider, but judging by

my experience with Suzuki all

the ingredients add up to healthy

sales down under.
