Three businesses hit

by ‘ratbag’ burglars

• By Andy Brew

BURGLARS WHO ransacked

three Ferrymead businesses

have been branded “ratbags”.

Two men forced their way

into the T-Sushi and Dubba

Delux restaurants and the Caci

Clinic next door, stealing cash

and thousands of dollars of

equipment.

CCTV footage from the

T-Sushi break-in shows one of

the offenders at work,

while his co-offender

stays outside, potentially

as a lookout.

To watch the video go

Jo Nielsen from Caci, a

beauty treatment centre,

said the thieves stole

more than $13,000 of beauty

products.

“It’s just horrible. They are

ratbags, they just don’t care who

they hurt,” she said.

Nielsen said because the

burglars had taken all of

their stock, the clinic couldn’t

Jo Nielsen

operate the following day and

had to cancel all of the day’s

appointments.

The break-ins happened in

the early hours of Thursday.

“We were fully-booked but

couldn’t open. It doesn’t just

affect our business, it affects our

clients too.”

Tiny Xu of T-Sushi said

the offenders stole the Eftpos

machine, an iPad, a laptop and

about $700.

He is hoping CCTV

footage will help identify

those responsible.

“One can be seen

wearing a very expensive

Zhik sailing jacket, so I’m

hoping some within the

yachting community will

recognise the man,” Xu

said.

Lyttelton police Sergeant

John Moody said that while

there was no forensic evidence

left at the scene, inquiries were

continuing.

Police were reviewing the

CCTV footage.

BURGLARS ARE active again

– this time in Ferrymead (see

And understandably those

happy.

Three businesses were targeted

early last Thursday morning.

The timing of each break-in

suggests they may have been

able to sidestep security. But

one of the offenders was captured

hopefully his distinctive jacket

will give him away.

Nuk’s trip has contributed

needed.

Said Nuk: “The legs are good

A successful mission all

round then.

$35k for Renee and ‘the backside is OK’

• By Chris Barclay

NUK KORAKO has safely

completed his 720km cycling

odyssey from Banks Peninsula to

Bluff, so one day Renee Veal will

be on the road to recovery.

The former National list MP

for Port Hills reached Stirling

Point from Invercargill on

October 18, the final leg of a

journey undertaken to spearhead

a $90,000 fundraising drive for

26-year-old Veal, who needs a

jaw reconstruction.

Veal, who grew

up in the small

community

of Rapaki, is

living with

hypermobile

Ehlers-Danlos

Renee Veal

Syndrome, which

means her jaw

often dislocates.

Struggling to sleep or eat

properly for a decade due to

persistent pain, Veal needs lifeenhanching

surgery which is

not covered by the public health

system.

The replacement jaw and joints

are titanium and manufactured

in the United States.

Her plight prompted Korako

to cycle to Bluff, a minor

discomfort in comparison, as

Karako raised $35,000.

“The legs are good and the

backside is okay,” said the proud

Gold Card holder, who started

heading south on an e-bike on

October 9.

The route took him from

Christchurch to Ashburton,

Tekapo, Tarras, Cromwell,

Queenstown, Lumsden and

Invercargill before the finish line.

He aimed to cover 85km a day.

“The hardest part was

Geraldine through Burkes Pass

to Tekapo because most of the

time it was head winds,” said

Korako, who activated battery

power on the steep stretches.

“It had to be a challenge for

me as well so on the flat you’re at

zero power. I only went to level

two when I was on the hills.”

SUCCESS: Nuk Korako reached Bluff after cycling from

Christchurch to raise money for Renee Veal who is living with

hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

Swooping magpies, heavy

traffic and a puncture were the

other obstacles for the politician

who served from 2014-19.

Korako drove back to

Christchurch with wife and

support crew Christine on

Wednesday to catch up with

Veal after updating her by

phone.

“Renee is over the moon. The

support from people who didn’t

even know us or Renee was

fantastic.

“We’re a third of the way

there (to the target), at least

we’ve created some momentum.”

More fundraising initiatives

are in the pipeline.

CSO residency hands-on, immersive

PERFORMANCE: Christchurch Symphony Orchestra’s

week-long residency at Lyttelton Primary School ended

with a concert at Lyttelton Arts Factory.

THE CHRISTCHURCH

Symphony Orchestra’s

‘Karawhiua! Let’s Play!’ school

residency programme came to

Lyttelton Primary School last

week.

Sponsored by the Lyttelton

Port Company, a range of

musicians from the orchestra

– including oboe player

Jenny Johnstone – embedded

themselves in the school for five

days.

Over the course of the week,

pupils got the chance to dive

into a musical and creative

experience, learning to play the

drums, ukuleles and harps,

as well as writing songs

and raps.

The music centred on the

school’s current learning theme

of Kaitiakitanga – being a

guardian for Whakaraupō/

Lyttelton Harbour and the wider

environment.

The week culminated in a final

concert at the Lyttelton Arts

Factory on Friday.

LPC chief executive Roger

Gray said its sponsorship

programme had a strong focus

on supporting the youth in the

harbour and the residency was a

great example of that.

“LPC is proud is to bring CSO

to the harbour as music is an

important part of education,

with ‘Karawhiua! Let’s Play!’

providing a hands-on and

immersive experience.”

Gray said he hoped the pupils

enjoyed the programme, learned

something new – and that the

week maybe even sparked a

passion for music.

The residency followed CSO

visits to Governors Bay and

Diamond Harbour Schools in

March.

Smallest team member suits up for duty

• By John Cosgrove

THE SMALLEST member of the

Christchurch South Community

Patrol, which covers Ferrymead,

has received his uniform.

“Ed has been a wonderful

addition to the team,” said patrol

team leader Ken Bye. “We were

looking for a different mascot

and Ed fitted right in with our

plans.”

The large teddy bear is often

seen on patrol with Ken and also

appears at special occasions.

“It’s all about having fun and

reaching out to the community,”

Bye said.

But fun is far from normal

when the patrol is on duty.

“Our role is to support the

police, the council and the community.

We are there to observe,

record and report,” he said.

The Christchurch South Community

Patrol is one of seven

located in the metropolitan area.

It is the largest, with more than

60 active members, covering an

area stretching from Halswell to

Ferrymead.

Bye said they usually have

two teams out, six days a week.

Each patrol varies, as does their

tasking, which can come from

the police, the city council or

themselves.

“We all know the roads we are

driving on, so we know when

something is odd or out of place.

Bye said those little, out-ofthe-ordinary

things were often

what the patrol reported into the

police or the council.

“It could be rubbish or graffiti

– we use the snap app to inform

the council about any we see – or

it could be a tasking from the

police to keep an eye out for this

or that, to watch a particular intersection

or observe any activity

in a specific area.

“But we are not police.

Although we often have police

recruits accompanying us, it

gives them valuable comms

experience working the radios

and phones when reporting

incidents,” Bye said.

Some of those incidents can

be bizarre or dangerous, like an

individual doing push-ups in

the middle of a busy intersection

then fighting the traffic signs,

or an intoxicated man smoking

while leaning up against a

petrol pump.

ALERT: Ed, mascot of

the Christchurch South

Community Patrol, dresses

for the job.

PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

Bye, a retired school teacher,

said he is rostered on patrol duty

for 12 hours a month.

“We are all volunteers, some

retirees, some young people and

others with time on their hands,

but we all want to serve our

communities.”

He said the police paid for

their fuel costs, but the rest they

had to fundraise themselves.

“And that’s where Ed comes

in, to make a connection with

the public at events to help us

fundraise and promote the

service,” Bye said.

Charity fights back on – with new rules

• By Liam Broderick

ALMOST A year since the last

Built for Battle charity boxing

event, fighters are getting back in

the ring to raise money for men’s

mental health.

Twenty-four fighters have

signed up for the Built for Battle

event on Saturday at Cowles

Stadium. They will be fighting

under new rules aimed at

making corporate and charity

boxing events

safer.

The New

Zealand Professional

Boxing

Association,

which oversees

Kain Parsons

professional

and corporate

boxing, introduced

the new rules at the beginning

of 2019, after the tragic

death of Sumner Sharks rugby

player Kain Parsons in a Fight

for Christchurch charity night.

Fighters competing in charity

boxing bouts were previously only

required to wear a mouthguard

and 16-ounce gloves, making the

risk of head injury high.

The new rules require all fighters

to wear a headguard, mouthguard,

groin guard (for men),

and heavier 18-ounce gloves. The

heavier gloves are intended to

improve safety by tiring fighters

and reducing the impact of

punches as a fight progresses.

Boxer James Bates said the

improvements to safety helped

him to decide to compete in the

October event.

“Eighteen-ounce gloves . . . and

using headgear, will cut down the

chance of injury by a lot,” he said.

READY: James Bates (left) training ahead of the event,

which founder Bryan Barry says is more about raising

awareness of men’s mental health than raising money.

NZPBA president Kevin Pyne

said boxing was full of risks, but

the new safety measures should

ensure fighter safety.

“There’s a lot of intricacies and

you can never be 100 per cent on

top of safety, but we sure as hell

like to be 99 per cent,” he said.

The Christchurch event is one

of five NZPBA-sanctioned boxing

events in the South Island

over the next couple of months.

It will feature 12 fights (11

men’s and one women’s) and

raise money for men’s mental

health charity I Am Hope.

I Am Hope founder Mike King

said he was glad that charity

boxing events were still running

and continuing to support men’s

mental health.

“Charity boxing has been the

main funder of our charity since

2014,” he said.

Last year’s Built for Battle

event raised $20,000 for charity,

though organiser and trainer

Bryan Barry said the goal was

more about raising awareness,

rather than money.

“If we only raise $5000 it

doesn’t matter,” he said.

THE INFAMOUS easterly was

the enemy to an enjoyable outing

yet again, but the rededication

of the Nicholas family plot will

always be a heart-warming

experience for Diana Burgess.

A niece of Canterbury’s

first Victoria Cross recipient,

Burgess got reacquainted with

other descendants of Sergeant

Henry Nicholas when they

assembled in Bromley Cemetery

on Saturday for the official

unveiling of a resting place finally

repaired a decade after the

earthquakes.

“There was quite a few of

the extended family. Graham

(husband) and I were the olds,

we were the only ones from that

generation but there was good

support from the next generation

down,” she said.

“That was lovely to see, very

heart-warming. We had a nice

get together afterwards. They’ll

keep the flag flying for the next

generation.”

Burgess as among 50 people

who braved the breeze to attend

the ceremony, the culmination

of a mission undertaken by local

resident and Korean War veteran

Ken Wright.

After walking past the

damaged plot, the Londoner

successfully enlisted the

support of the New Zealand

Remembrance Army, a graverestoring

charity, who completed

the repair work.

“It was a real tribute to those

who worked so hard to get

it under way. They’re done a

wonderful job,” Burgess said.

The Canterbury branch of the

Royal New Zealand Returned

and Services Association

coordinated the ceremony which

included an honour guard, firing

party and Nicholas’ medals,

including the VC which was

bequeathed to Canterbury

Museum by his mother.

Lincoln-born Nicholas earned

the United Kingdom’s highest

military honour for his part in

an attack on a German-held

position in Belgium in December

The 27-year-old (right) was

killed in action in France on October

23, 1918; hostilities ended

shortly after on November 11.

A wreath was also laid at

Nicholas’ grave in the Vertigneul

Churchyard near the border with

Belgium on Sunday to follow the

Building skills for the future

THE HAPPY sounds of children

playing together on their latest

piece of outdoor equipment is the

first thing you notice as you walk

into KidsFirst Kindergartens

Sumner.

THanks to fundrasing and

grants, the Kindergarten is

redeveloping and upgrading

their outdoor playground. The

latest acquisition is a hexagonal

box funded by the Sumner

Ferrymead Foundation.

“We were so excited when the

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation

agreed to fund the hexagonal

box” head teacher Liz Morritt

said.

“Having observed ngā tamariki

at play, we identified our need

for more loose parts equipment

to promote creativity, critical

thinking, decision making, problem

solving and collaborative

play. The hexagonal box is an

open-ended piece of equipment

that can be used in a variety of

ways within our environment.

We are looking forward to seeing

ways that children are going to

use this in their play.”

The children immediately saw

opportunities as to how to link

this new piece to existing equipment

in the playground.

“For us the environment is the

third teacher; it sets the scene

for the children’s exploration”

Morritt said.

Want to help your

community?

A donation to the Sumner

Ferrymead Foundation

enables you to help

your community. You

can specify what you

would like the money

to be used for, you can

give a donation that the

trustees will ensure is

put to good use, or you

can leave a bequest. For

more information on the

work of the foundation

and how to donate, go to

www.sumnerferrymead

foundation.co.nz

“Here we value the

importance of children having

the opportunity to engage in

challenging and risky play to

help develop their physical skills,

perseverance, and their resilience

– important skills which they

take with them into their adult

life,” kindergarten teacher Nicola

Gardiner said.

Trustee of the Sumner Ferrymead

Foundation Martin

Hawes saw the new piece of

equipment in use first hand, and

was delighted to see the children

exploring the many ways to play

with, and on, the hexagon.

“Children in Sumner tend to

have active families so its great to

see the staff helping the children

to develop more physically challenging

skills.”

Like any not-for-profit organisation,

fundraising is of vital

importance, so Kidsfirst Kindergartens

Sumner are delighted the

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation

has provided a helping hand.

“It’s a great example of the

local community helping each

other,” Morritt said.

“The children are showing

their appreciation by making a

card for the Sumner Ferrymead

Foundation.”

And that’s exactly what the

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation

is all about, Hawes said.

“When locals support us

through donations – either specified

for a particular initiative

or an untied donation -we are

able to support the community

in which they live. That’s what

makes the Sumner Ferrymead

community such a great place to

live.”

New test sites set up to improve

understanding of waterways

ELEVEN NEW water quality

monitoring sites are giving

the city council a better

understanding of the state of

rivers and streams.

The Christchurch Surface

Water Quality Report 2021 and

summary brochure have just

been published. The report is

an analysis of monthly data

collected at 51 sites across Banks

Peninsula the city during 2020.

The new monitoring sites are

Aylmers and Balguerie Streams

in Akaroa, Stream Reserve

Drain and Zephyr Stream in

Governors Bay, Avon-Heathcote

Estuary, Cass Bay, Akaroa

Harbour, and Lyttelton Harbour.

Heathcote River at Warren Cres,

Steamwharf Stream (Heathcote

River catchment), Halswell River

at Wroots Rd.

Results for most monitoring

sites have remained steady since

2007, with some sites improving

and some worsening, said city

council waterways ecologist Dr

Belinda Margetts, who leads this

research.

The site recording the best water

quality was the Ōtūkaikino

(Avon River catchment), Avon

followed by Styx River at

Gardiners Rd.

The worst sites were Curletts

Nottingham Stream at Candys

Rd (Halswell River catchment),

Haytons Stream (Heathcote

River catchment), and Addington

Brook (Ōtākaro-Avon River

catchment).

“The Huritini-Halswell River

catchment did not meet many

of the water quality standards

and recorded the poorest water

quality,” Dr Margetts said.

“One of our new monitoring

sites, Nottingham Stream, has

highlighted that this waterway

has poor water quality. This

wasn’t on our radar before and

its poor water quality will be due

to contaminants entering the

waterway from both urban and

rural land use.”

The city council uses this water

quality information, along with

sediment quality and aquatic

insect data to create waterway

report cards for each of the city’s

five main river catchments. The

catchments are then given a

score from ‘A’ (very good health)

to ‘E’ (very poor health).

As in the past three years,

no waterway scored an A and

no waterway scored an E. The

The 2021 surface

recommends the city

council:

• Prioritises Curletts

Rd Stream, Nottingham

Stream and Addington

Brook for contaminant

source control and stormwater

treatment

• Prioritises sediment

control, particularly in the

Heathcote River and Cashmere

Stream

• Cements a

whole-of-community

approach to addressing

stormwater contaminants

through the Community

Waterway Partnership

• Investigates faecal

contamination, particularly

from waterfowl, to identify

how best to reduce levels

• Develops an action plan

for achieving the Healthy

Water Bodies Community

Outcome

Ōtūkaikino River catchment

again recorded the highest score

(B), Styx River catchment scored

a C and Avon River, Halswell

River and Heathcote River

catchments all scored a D.

Dr Margetts said that like

most cities, Christchurch waterways

suffer from a condition

known as ‘urban stream syndrome’.

“Our waterways are

contaminated with runoff

from hard surfaces such as

roofs, driveways and roads, and

with faecal contaminants from

waterfowl and dog droppings,”

she said.

“The council, other

organisations and landowners

are working hard to improve

the health of our waterways,

especially through improving

the quality of the water and

carrying out restoration projects,

but it may take many years to

see this work flow through to

a big improvement in water

quality.”

Treasures from the past:

The Emil Ascherberg piano

COLONIAL SETTLERS of

Canterbury treasured their

precious pianos, which were not

just for entertainment but were

also a status symbol.

Additionally, they were useful

for educating young ladies in

the art of music, so as to show

off their accomplishments and

attract only the most suitable of

husbands.

In what was called the ‘golden

age of pianos’, these instruments

were a sought-after treasure

across the Australasian colonies

of the Victorian British Empire.

And one brand in particular

figured prominently in the 19th

century: The Emil Ascherberg,

as pictured here in the museum’s

collection. Allegedly made by

their namesake in Dresden,

Germany, between 1877 and

1883, many were imported to

the Australasian markets by the

music publishers and importers

of fortepianos, cabinet organs

and harmoniums, J. Nicholson

and E. Ascherberg Inc.

Eugene Ascherberg, a composer

for voice and piano, also from

Dresden, may or may not have

been Emil’s relative – or he may

have even been Emil himself.

Nonetheless, he arrived

in Melbourne in 1867 from

London. He was an initiate of

the Freemason Lodge of Australia

Felix by 1872, and in 1875

launched Australasia’s first retail

music store, on Sydney’s George

Street, with James Nicholson

(formerly of Bradford UK).

The piano importing partnership

lasted until 1879, when the

business dissolved and Eugene

returned to London where

he started a music publishing

business, E. Ascherberg & Co, in

1880.

Very little is known about

Emil Ascherberg, except that

he owned the Dresden factory

that made pianos under his own

brand name from 1877, although

the company was not incorporated

until 1880, the year after

Eugene arrived back from the

colonies.

In 1883, Emil ran into financial

difficulties and the piano factory

was bankrupted – at the same

time as Eugene’s E. Ascherberg

& Co, importers of French and

German pianofortes in London,

also apparently went bankrupt.

book. ‘Sets him comfortably alongside Tolkien, Rowling

and David Mitchell, and he is a much more elegant writer

than two of those … Cloud Cuckoo Land is an impressive

achievement and a joy to read. Serious novels are rarely this fun’

The Times.Bound together by a single ancient text, the unforgettable

characters of Cloud Cuckoo Land are dreamers and outsiders figuring out the world

around them: thirteen-year-old Anna and Omeir, an orphaned seamstress and a

cursed boy, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of

Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour and octogenarian Zeno in an attack on a

public library in present-day Idaho; and Konstance, decades from now, who turns

to the oldest stories to guide her community in peril. Doerr has created a tapestry of

times and places that reflects our own vast interconnectedness – with other species,

with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after

we’re gone. Dedicated to ‘the librarians then, now, and in the years to come’, Cloud

Cuckoo Land is a beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship – of the book,

of the Earth, of the human heart.

So, I’ve written a book. Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few

questionable opportunities (‘It’s a piece of cake! Just do four hours of interviews,

find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!’), I have decided

to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. The joy that

I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that

I’ve recorded and can’t wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal

entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss

posters on my wall as a child. This certainly doesn’t mean that I’m quitting my day

job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it’s like to be a kid from

Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as

young musician. From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in

Nirvana and the Foo Fighters , jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy

Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming

for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories

with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard , to flying halfway around

the world for one epic night with my daughters...the list goes on. I look forward to

focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with

much excitement.

‘Emil’ absconded and was

allegedly “trading pots in

Copenhagen [from] January

1884” before apparently setting

up another business as a music

publisher in London. Not much

more is known of this E. Ascherberg,

as the factory and many

records were destroyed in the fire

bombing of Dresden in WW2.

Eugene, however, continued to

run various music-related businesses

while residing peacefully

in London with his wife and

children up until his death in

1908.

Aside from these historical

ambiguities, it seems likely we

can place the year of manufacture

of our museum’s Emil

Ascherberg piano, with its

signature ornate clawed feet, as

sometime between 1875 – when

the Australasian import business

began – and 1883 – when Emil’s

piano factory went bankrupt and

was sold, after which the pianos

were manufactured under the

name of Ascherberg Perzina.

We look forward to displaying

Danger in looking after menagerie at

Willowbank Wildlife

Reserve’s founder

Michael Willis has

survived many an

encounter with the

feathered and furry

creatures in his care,

including having half

his thumb bitten off.

He talks to Susan

Sandys

What motivated you to

establish Willowbank?

Willowbank was an

establishment of a dream I

had since I was a wee boy. I

come from a large family of six

children, and we are all back

country orientated in a big way.

My father established a bach

up in the Craigieburn Valley. I

kept a whole lot of pets. I had

hares, keas, possums and hawks.

I always wanted to have a zoo,

ever since I was big enough to

read Gerald Durrell and Richard

Attenborough. When I came

back to New Zealand in my 20s,

I looked for a block of land to

establish a zoo on. I had worked

in the United Kingdom with

animals, in a wildlife refuge.

In Africa I was offered a job in

Kruger National Park but came

home instead.

CARING: Michael Willis at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve with a capybara, a South

American rodent.

PHOTO: RNZ

And you found that block

of land, where Willowbank is

today, at Northwood, in your

home city of Christchurch?

I was buying some eggs and

asked the farmer if he knew of

any land for sale. He pointed me

in that direction. It was 11 acres,

covered in gorse and broom and

rubbish and so on. It’s an old

riverbed that the Waimak used

to come through. So I bought it.

It was 1968. It was ideal for what

I wanted, near the airport, near

the main road.

When did you open it?

It was 1974 before I could

open it as a wildlife park. I had

no money, so it was a very poor

excuse for a wildlife park. I built

a house on the property, we

(myself and former wife Kathy

and then two children) lived

there. I couldn’t even afford to

have an entrance box. I had an

old Land-Rover and sat in the

front seat with a shoe box, and

put the money in that. It opened

Labour Weekend in 1974 and

the rest is history I suppose. All

the money we got, we just kept

putting back into it.

Did you envisage it would

become the facility it is today?

No, at that stage I wanted

a zoo. So I kept on getting

animals. I kept on getting

monkeys, mountain lions, we

had camels, we had agoutis, we

had otters, we had chimpanzees.

The chimpanzees were the

tipping point, when I realised

there was really no future in

keeping exotic animals in New

Zealand. We’ve got so much

exciting and valuable wildlife

that needs preservation, I

decided there was no future in

being a zoo. So my childhood

dream didn’t shatter, but it

changed completely. I changed

the direction of the park

totally to become New Zealand

focussed.

Are there any exotic animals

at Willowbank today?

We still have otters, there’s

talk that New Zealand had

an otter. We have capybara,

gibbons, capuchin monkeys,

lemurs and we have exotic birds

like macaws. We try and have

a story of New Zealand when

people visit here. It starts with

introduced animals, then it goes

into the exotic sections. They fit

into the story of zoos in

New Zealand.

Willowbank for reserve’s founder

There is a big focus on New

Zealand species?

The story finishes with the New

Zealand section. This is where we

breed all our kiwi, and we have

takahe and tuatara and a wide

range of native species. When

I changed the direction of the

park, by that stage I had been

to Arapawa Island mustering

goats, and saw the wild sheep

up there. That led to a whole

field of conservation which I

hadn’t thought about, which was

conserving rare breeds in New

Zealand.

Did otters live in New

Zealand?

The Southland Maori had an

animal called waitoreke. They

described this four-legged animal

that lived there. When Cook

was here, his men saw an otterlike

animal in Fiordland. Early

explorers and others reported

seeing otters. There has really

been no sightings since about

1954. One theory is (they came

from a ship after) Tamil Indians

wrecked in the area.

Otters are very cute creatures.

They are dynamite to handle.

I have had them in the house,

we have bred them and reared

babies. We bred some and the

mother couldn’t feed them and

we had a cavalier king charles

spaniel belonging to my son. She

just had some pups, so I put the

two otter cubs on with her, she

looked after them with her pups.

So they bounced round with the

pups. They are dynamite, they

smell very fishy. They would get

in the pot cupboard, fly around

the pot cupboard, they like

poking into everything.

When you look back on

the years that you kept exotic

animals, do you have any

regrets at all?

The chimpanzees were an

interesting one. It’s not like

keeping an animal, it’s like

keeping your grandmother in a

cage. They are hugely intelligent,

hugely emotional. The public

used to jump up and down

outside their cage, hooting and

scratching themselves and so

on. The chimps would sit there

watching them, wondering what

the hell they were doing. It used

to upset the chimps actually,

they would be quiet after a busy

weekend. It makes you realise

you shouldn’t have them. We

only got them because they were

in a zoo in Dunedin that closed

down, and there was no place for

them to go. I took them on, but

it took me about 12 years to find

a home for them. They went to

Mogo Zoo in Australia.

Was that a happy ending for

their story?

real favourite friend of mine,

he was killed by another

chimpanzee. It wasn’t entirely

their (the zoo’s) fault, they were

trying to integrate him. It was

good for the female, she later

went to Rockhampton Zoo. She

is with a crew there, and she has

had babies and she is in a good

breeding programme. They

were probably as happy as they

had ever been with us, we spent

a lot of time with them. I had

a wonderful relationship with

them, even if Charlie took half

my thumb off, he bit it off.

He wouldn’t have done that on

purpose?

It was deliberate. I had some

sunflower seed and I had my

hand like that (cupped) against

the wire, and he was picking the

seed out of my hand. Somebody

called to me and I turned my

head away to answer them, and

his finger shot out and grabbed

my hand and pulled it against

the netting so my thumb went

through and he went “bang”, got

it.

Were you still friends with

him after that?

He was strutting around

the place weeks after that, full

of himself, top dog. So after a

while, when I got myself back

together again, I went down

there and had a plasterer’s

trowel in my hand. I put some

sunflower seed just outside the

cage. He put his fingers through

to get the sunflower seed. I

went “whack” (smacking his

fingers with the trowel). Then

we were the best of friends. He

was lovely, you would go down

there, I would be able to hold

his hand. We would kiss each

other through the netting and

he would hoot away, we had a

wonderful relationship. He

knew all the hierarchy of the

staff, who had just started,

who was the boss and who

wasn’t. He knew who to have on.

Really incredibly clever, really

special.

‘She was going to kill me’

• From page 19

Have you had other injuries

from animals?

I had an emu that knocked

the hell out of me. I had to be

stitched up from that. Both

hands were ripped up by a wild

boar which just flew at me. I was

going backwards with my hands

out, and he just ripped my hands

to pieces. I was almost killed

by a highland cow. She was bad

tempered. She had a sick calf, I

wanted to give it antibiotics. I

went out to bring her into the

yards. She took one look at me

and she just went straight into

me, tossed me in the air, got me

on the ground. I was hanging

onto her horns, one in each hand.

She had her head in my chest,

she was ripping around and

punching holes in my thighs. She

threw me over the fence. I was

really badly bruised and holed.

She was going to kill me.

As well as having all the

animals at Willowbank, do you

have pets at home?

I have some exotic parrots,

macaws, cockatoos, black

cockatoos, some cochin chooks,

couple of donkeys, couple of

horses, african four-horned

sheep, african pygmy sheep,

meatmaster sheep. I have

What is your role today at

Willowbank?

Managing director. My

daughter Kirsty and son Mark

have both come back into the

park in different roles. They are

both directors. Kirsty and her

husband Dale Hedgcock are here

day to day. She does the internal

management, and he manages

the outside to a large extent.

Mark does the promotional work

and public relations. I don’t feed

the animals now. That’s why I

have my place at home, I have to

have my animals.

Do you have any favourite

animals at Willowbank?

Everybody asks me that. No,

they are all different. Some are

pretty, some have got a fantastic

personality, some are serious,

some want to love you and you

can’t get away from them. They

are all different, so I don’t really

have a favourite one.

let alone the home of two architects. This

notoriety is testament to quality and design.

not be contained and after an opportunity

arose the decision has been made to embark

on another project. Menzies Pop! is one of a

kind and this is a very special opportunity to

buy a very impressive home.

Big Highlander V6 leads the charge

TOYOTA COULD well have

been excused for abandoning its

popular large sport utility vehicle,

the Highlander.

You see, the V6 version is a

car that is going to get clobbered

in January by the Government’s

Clean Car Programme tax, it will

certainly cop a $4600 price rise

that will be used to fund rebates

on electric cars and hybrids.

However, Toyota is in tune with

market demands and the new

Highlander is not only available

with just that wonderful V6 engine,

there are also three hybrid

variants that have just landed.

The five-model Highlander

range goes something like this,

the GXL entry-level model this

evaluation focuses on comes in at

$60,990, while an extra $3k will

buy you into Limited specification.

There are three hybrid

models that utilise an uprated

2.5-litre, four-cylinder/electric

drivetrain that we first saw in

RAV4 hybrid. The GXL hybrid

also lists at $63,990, a Limited ZR

sits at $74,990, in-between sits a

$66,990 Limited.

All have four-wheel-drive and

all are seven-seat models, which

is one of the reasons why Highlander

has been such a popular

model in the past. As such, it

could well be regarded as the

quintessential large SUV.

The Highlander V6 has lost

none of the credentials that have

appealed to drivers who like the

freedom of petrol power up front,

and power that is quite substantial

– Toyota claiming 218kW and

350Nm.

Toyota is also fully aware a big

engine in a big car never looks

good for fuel economy. However,

the company has decreased the

newcomer’s consumption remarkably

thanks to clever engine

management mapping and the

introduction of an idle stop-start

system.

Fuel usage is now rated at

8.8-litres per 100km on a combined

cycle average, down from

9.5l/100km. I spent a lot of time

commuting in city traffic, so

my overall average didn’t match

Toyota’s, but when I took the

test car back to the dealership it

was still showing a respectable

10.2l/100km. On my highway run

the engine sipped fuel instantaneously

at the rate of 7l/100km at

100km/h, the engine turning over

barely above idle at just 1400rpm.

The big V6 engine has served

Toyota well, its origins hark way

back to early Prado, Camry and

Aurion days, the Blade Master

(pre-owned import), Hilux and

several Lexus models. As such,

it has been constantly refined

to the point where it is very

FAMILY-FRIENDLY: Toyota’s Highlander SUV offers room

for comfort and cargo space.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER GLX: Powerful petrol engine or hybrid driveline to choose from.

much a market leader in terms

of sophistication. Such is its

smoothness it’s hard to fathom

with a displacement of 3456cc all

that reciprocating mass could be

so unflustered. It is also a flighty

engine when required, it sings

freely through the rev band and

likes to show off its strength.

Drive is carried through an

eight-speed automatic transmission,

once again it is a beauty

with undetectable shifts and a ratio

structure that promotes quick

acceleration and relaxed engine

operation at highway speed.

The more ratios that are

packed into a gearbox always

provide a smoother driving

experience, and the Highlander’s

driveline is a beauty, it also ushers

in quick acceleration with a likely

standstill to 100km/h time of

8.5sec and an overtaking time of

5.5sec to make 120 from 80km/h.

I took the test car on my usual

loop west to Windwhistle, utilising

a short shingle section near

Glenroy to scope out the road to

the Washpen Falls walking track.

There are a few corrugations on

that road, but from the outset the

Highlander impressed with its

suspension control over the ruts

and its ability to put power to

ground. The tyres on the test car

were a Toyo compound (235/65 x

18in) and they extracted grip well

along with providing a quiet ride

• Price – Toyota Highlander

GLX, $60,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4950mm; width, 1930mm;

height, 1730mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive, 3456cc,

218kW, 350Nm, eightspeed

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8.5sec

• Fuel usage – 8.8l/100km

on sealed surfaces.

The same could be said of the

entire vehicle, it sits on the outer

periphery of the luxury car market

so its levels of noise, vibration

and harshness are extremely low.

That makes for a relaxing highway

cruise.

The steerage and suspension

combine to provide an almost

sporty sensation from behind the

wheel, and that takes into account

that at just under two-tonne it is a

heavy wagon, yet it feels composed

and far from bulky when a

tricky corner presents itself.

Toyota has built the new

Highlander on a completely new

platform that makes it a little bigger

than before, but still offers the

fundamentals underneath that

give it cross-country prowess. For

those who want to take the family

camping to those high country

lakes or tackle the skifield access

road, the Highlander is vastly

capable with various driver-selectable

modes depending on the

surface ahead and the speed at

which it can be challenged.

While many of the Highlanders

mechanicals are a carryover, the

shape of the newcomer is more

dynamic and bolder, Toyota are

making no excuses for the size of

the vehicle, they want it to look

big and it is.

Even in GXL form it reeks of

sophistication, it is comfortable

and has a wealth of specification.

If you want leather trim you’ll

need to opt for the Limited variant,

but I far prefer cloth and the

GXL’s trim is still very inviting,

especially on a frosty Canterbury

morning. It must also be said

the Highlander in this form has

a high grade interior, the plastics

and trim elements are all high

grade and the layout of the controls

is intuitive and user-friendly.

The Highlander has long been

sourced from Toyota’s United

States manufacturing operation,

and nothing has changed there.

Quality is high and the familyfriendly

sport utility vehicle

concept hasn’t been altered.

Look soon for an evaluation

on the hybrid Highlander,

I’m scheduled into it and I’m

really looking forward to that

experience.

Situations Vacant

Local Democracy

Reporter

- North Canterbury

Job type: Fixed term – 24 months

Location: Rangiora

Closing date: October 29, 2021

Are you an outstanding reporter looking for a new challenge and wanting

to serve your community?

Allied Press, with the support of RNZ and NZ On Air’s Public Interest

Journalism Fund, is hiring a journalist to join Local Democracy Reporting in

2022 and 2023 from the North Canterbury News office in Rangiora.

You will be covering local authorities and other publicly-funded

organisations, but also going out and talking to the people affected by

these organisations’ decisions, sharing their stories, and coming up with

your own stories on similar topics.

Your focus will be providing great public interest journalism coverage daily

throughout the North Canterbury region including Waimakariri, Hurunui

and Kaikōura. This is a multi-media role so experience in video, audio and

photography would be an advantage.

You will report to Allied Press’ North Canterbury bureau chief. You will

receive extra training and support from RNZ, and your work will be made

available at the same time to all of the programme’s media partners,

including RNZ.

This could be a junior, intermediate or senior role depending on the

successful candidate. We are looking for someone with as many of the

following qualities as possible. You don’t need all of these to apply, but you

do need to have at least two years’ reporting experience (although in some

cases we may also consider exceptional applicants with only one year’s

experience).

• Able to spot a strong story and make it come alive for your audience

• Able to meet the highest standards of accuracy, fairness and balance

• Understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi

• Some knowledge of local government

• Excellent writing skills

This is a full-time role for a fixed term (through to 31 December 2023).

Assistance with relocation costs may be considered.

Applications close October 29, 2021.

Please submit your CV along with your cover letter and work samples to

recruitment@alliedpress.co.nz

MARKET UPDATE | SUMMER IS COMING

Do we stay or do we sell?

This is a question that we get asked daily, as we get closer to summer we are seeing more properties

coming to the market. The bays have seen "all-time highs" when it comes to property prices, but is now the

right time to sell?

When you are selling you are also buying back into the same market, unless you make the choice to wait

and see what the market is going to do later down the track. This is a very tough one to navigate because

the majority of properties are going to auction which means you have to be unconditional unless you do

find a property that is a deadline sale where you can submit an offer subject to sale of your home. If you do

sell, you run the risk of not securing a property and having that impending move date looming over your

head. And ultimately you might buy something because you have to, not because you want to or it's the

right choice.

Make your move the right move.

If you want the right honest advice, reach out to your local HOME specialist today and see what their

thoughts are.

perfectly designed to maximise natural light. Grand expanses of glass

are pronounced throughout, and an open-plan living and dining room
