“YOU’RE IN IT for life” as<br />

the saying goes among surf<br />

lifesavers and so far this has<br />

been true for Danny Schefer.<br />

When Schefer and his family<br />

moved to Sumner from England<br />

13 years ago, his parents joined<br />

the whole family up to Taylors<br />

Mistake Surf Life Saving Club to<br />

learn more about the ocean and<br />

how to stay safe.<br />

“We came from the middle<br />

of England where there’s no<br />

beaches so we’d never really had<br />

too much to do with the sea,”<br />

Schefer said. • Turn to page 6<br />

Plan to<br />

stop using<br />

coal on<br />

historic<br />

tug boat<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

THE HISTORIC Tug Lyttelton<br />

may move away from using coal<br />

to an environmentally-friendly<br />

fuel.<br />

The Tug Lyttelton Preservation<br />

Society is looking into new options<br />

to power the 115-year-old<br />

boat, one of oldest operating<br />

steam-powered vessels in the<br />

world.<br />

Society president Mike Bruce<br />

said up to 60-tonne of coal is used<br />

a year to run the vessel.<br />

“We’ve got to change, we want<br />

to run the ship for another 100<br />

years, we won’t do that on coal,<br />

we’ve got to move away, it has to<br />

be done,” he said.<br />

But the costs of converting<br />

from a coal-fired vessel to a more<br />

environmentally-friendly option<br />

are high.<br />

“We are well aware we have<br />

got to do something but we are<br />

not self-sustainable, we can’t<br />

fund ourselves through the year<br />

from passenger sales so need to<br />

go and get grants from Rata, pub<br />

charities, the Heritage Society and<br />

others.”<br />

Estuary penguins under<br />

threat from mauling dogs<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

LITTLE BLUE penguins on the<br />

estuary continue to be attacked<br />

by dogs.<br />

Two were killed near Redcliffs<br />

in December,<br />

but the<br />

number is<br />

likely to be<br />

higher Avon-<br />

Trust manager<br />

Tanya<br />

Jenkins<br />

Tanya Jenkins<br />

said.<br />

She is urging<br />

dog owners to follow the rules<br />

and not allow their pets onto the<br />

mudflats in the estuary where<br />

penguins gather.<br />

Jenkins also said dogs were<br />

continuing to harass other<br />

birdlife, particularly on the<br />

Southshore side of the estuary.<br />

Signage along the estuary<br />

states that the mudflats are a ‘no<br />

go’ zone for dogs but some local<br />

residents continue to ignore the<br />

rules, she said.<br />

“During December another<br />

two little blue penguins were<br />

mauled by dogs around Redcliffs<br />

and if these two birds were<br />

found, there is a high chance the<br />

numbers are much higher when<br />

mauled birds are taken away by<br />

the tides,” Jenkins said.<br />

“Even if [birds] are not killed<br />

by dogs, the disturbance by dogs<br />

running on the mudflats can be<br />

life threatening.”<br />

Birds can only feed on the<br />

mudflats during peak low tide<br />

which allows for a short window<br />

of only a few hours for them to<br />

eat enough to last them the day.<br />

Being disturbed by dogs can<br />

significantly cut down this time.<br />

“If in this short time they<br />

are scared, chased by dogs,<br />

it can take up to 45 minutes<br />

before they regain the courage<br />

to continue eating again,” said<br />

Jenkins.<br />

“Don’t get me wrong, I love<br />

OUT OF CONTROL: Dogs<br />

off the lead are chasing<br />

birds and killing penguins.<br />

dogs and have been a dog owner<br />

since I was <strong>12</strong>-years-old but it’s<br />

just such a shame that some dog<br />

owners are just not aware of the<br />

rules or simply do not wish to<br />

abide.”<br />

The trust is urging local<br />

residents to help make dog<br />

owners aware of the rules and to<br />

report those who ignore them to<br />

the city council.<br />

IMPACT OF SEA LEVEL<br />

RISE SURVEY<br />

The city council has created<br />

a survey for the Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> and Port Levy area<br />

communities it hopes will help<br />

to inform long-term planning<br />

as part of the council’s Coastal<br />

Hazards Adaptation Planning<br />

programme. Low-lying inland<br />

and coastal communities will<br />

be increasingly impacted by<br />

intense storm events and longterm<br />

sea level rise leading to<br />

more frequent and severe coastal<br />

flooding, coastal erosion, and<br />

rising groundwater. The focus<br />

area of the project is between<br />

Lyttelton and Port Levy. The<br />

survey is to help understand the<br />

risk tolerance of communities<br />

in the event of prolonged loss of<br />

road access due to the impacts of<br />

sea level rise.<br />

In <strong>2022</strong>, parents and caregivers will<br />

be able to get their 5 to 11-year-olds<br />

immunised against COVID-19<br />

Some tamariki get very ill from catching<br />

COVID-19 and immunisation is one of<br />

the best ways to protect them.<br />

Immunisation is an important way we keep tamariki safe,<br />

like being sun smart or wearing a seatbelt.<br />

It protects your tamariki from many serious diseases<br />

and stops disease spreading within your whānau and the<br />

community. In Aotearoa, tamariki get free vaccinations<br />

against <strong>12</strong> diseases, including whooping cough (pertussis),<br />

measles and polio.<br />

Safety of the COVID-19 vaccine<br />

The child (paediatric) Pfizer vaccine has gone through<br />

the same rigorous approval process as other routine<br />

childhood immunisations. No clinical trials were skipped<br />

and no corners were cut in the testing of its safety.<br />

The Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 11-year-olds has been through<br />

clinical trials with children in this age group. In general,<br />

the side effects that were reported were mild, didn’t last<br />

long, and were similar to side effects from other routine<br />

immunisations.<br />

Take time this summer to get the information and advice you need to make the best<br />

decision for your tamariki. Find out more at:<br />

Funding key to long-term options<br />

• From page 1<br />

Bruce said the society is looking<br />

into a range of options, one<br />

of those being powering the ship<br />

with bio fuel.<br />

Bio fuel is fuel that can be produced<br />

from, or are made up of a<br />

renewable material like wood.<br />

Bruce estimates the conversion<br />

cost of going from coal to bio fuel<br />

is $40,000. Double the amount of<br />

wood needs to be used to achieve<br />

the same amount of energy as<br />

coal.<br />

Another option, that could be<br />

run in conjunction with bio fuel,<br />

is to have an electric pre-heater<br />

to pre-heat the boiler. This would<br />

cost another $80,000.<br />

Wood has less greenhouse<br />

gas associated with it than the<br />

average electricity greenhouse<br />

gas footprint. If battery powered,<br />

it will be the “oldest vessel in the<br />

world running the newest technology,”<br />

Bruce said.<br />

However, these may only be<br />

short-term options. Whatever<br />

decision is made will be based on<br />

the funding available to them.<br />

“[It’s] based on what funding<br />

we can get. If we get a million<br />

dollars we’ll go pretty much go<br />

straight to hydrogen, if we get<br />

$50,000 we’ll go straight to bio<br />

fuel and if we get $150,000 we’ll<br />

go to bio fuel and an electric<br />

pre-heater,” Bruce said.<br />

“We’ve got to get off coal, but<br />

we’re not going to get off coal<br />

without funding.”<br />

Bruce said they will be sourcing<br />

expert advice on the next<br />

steps for the ship.<br />

‘We’ve got to change, we<br />

want to run the ship for<br />

another 100 years’<br />

– Mike Bruce<br />

“I want three or four plans in<br />

place and costed out then we can<br />

run to the grant people and other<br />

agencies and say okay with this<br />

much we can do this with this<br />

much we can do that.”<br />

“A lot of people love this vessel,<br />

it’s got a lot of history for Lyttelton,<br />

it’s probably one of the oldest<br />

historic vessels in the world, we<br />

need to keep it going but it does<br />

need to change.”<br />

Sunday was the first public<br />

sailing of the season for the tug<br />

and it will continue to sail every<br />

Sunday at 2.30pm, weather<br />

permitting, until Easter weekend<br />

in April.<br />

PLANS: Mike Bruce says<br />

the The Tug Lyttelton<br />

Preservation Society is<br />

sourcing expert advice on<br />

how to fuel the vessel in<br />

the future.<br />

Love of ocean and helping people<br />

• From page 1<br />

The now 21-year-old Canterbury<br />

University student is a<br />

patrol captain on both volunteer<br />

and paid guard, a beach education<br />

instructor and a member of<br />

the 24/7 search and rescue squad<br />

in Sumner.<br />

From age eight to 13, Schefer<br />

was a part of the junior surf<br />

programme, also known as the<br />

‘nippers’. At 13, he completed the<br />

rookie lifeguard programme. At<br />

14, he gained his surf lifeguard<br />

award and then at 16, the senior<br />

lifeguard award – inflatable rescue<br />

boat driver.<br />

Now, each season, Schefer<br />

works full-time during the<br />

week as a paid regional lifeguard<br />

and spends his weekends<br />

volunteering at Taylors Mistake.<br />

He also does beach education,<br />

teaching school children<br />

all there is to know about water<br />

safety.<br />

Schefer became a lifeguard<br />

because he simply loved being<br />

around the ocean and helping<br />

people.<br />

“I’ve been helped out a lot all<br />

the way through my lifesaving<br />

journey and I wanted to give<br />

back,” he said.<br />

Schefer’s continued efforts have<br />

not gone unnoticed.<br />

Taylors Mistake patrol operations<br />

manager Ian Rae joined the<br />

WATCHFUL: Schefer is working as both a paid and volunteer lifesaver every week during<br />

this season. When he returns to his studies in February he will continue to volunteer<br />

during the weekends for his home club Taylors Mistake.<br />

PHOTO: STAR MEDIA<br />

club in 2006 when Schefer “was<br />

one of the nippers”.<br />

“He’s a really lovely guy . . .<br />

he’s just really keen and a great<br />

leader within our club. A really<br />

great example of what a lifeguard<br />

needs to be,” Rae said.<br />

Schefer was awarded the<br />

Canterbury Volunteer Lifeguard<br />

of the Year in 2021 for his “dedication<br />

and commitment” to<br />

surf lifesaving. Last year he also<br />

gained his advanced lifeguard<br />

award, which is the highest<br />

award available for lifeguards<br />

within the Surf Life Saving New<br />

Zealand pathway.<br />

Schefer said he’s continuously<br />

learning and that each day on<br />

the job brings with it new challenges.<br />

“Each [rescue] is very different,<br />

there’s always something that<br />

changes with it,” he said.<br />

Schefer said one rescue that<br />

stood out for him was three<br />

seasons back while patrolling at<br />

Cave Rock, multiple swimmers<br />

were caught in a rip. Schefer rescued<br />

two people by pulling them<br />

in on a rescue tube. After getting<br />

them to the beach, he immediately<br />

returned to rescue another two<br />

on a rescue board.<br />

“It’s always a relief when you<br />

get them back onto the beach and<br />

everyone is fine, there’s a lot of<br />

focus in the moment,” he said.<br />

Although there is a lot of<br />

responsibility on his shoulders,<br />

Schefer feels confident in the<br />

training he has had and the support<br />

from his colleagues.<br />

“I know I’ve always got the<br />

backup on the beach if things go<br />

wrong,” he said.<br />

Schefer and his younger brother<br />

Ollie, 19, are currently training<br />

as a team for IRB racing. They<br />

will compete in February and<br />

Orienteers seek funds<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

DOUGAL SHEPHERD and<br />

Scott Smith are hoping to<br />

navigate their way to Switzerland<br />

for the World University<br />

Orienteering Championships<br />

later this year.<br />

Shepherd<br />

and Smith,<br />

both of Redcliffs,<br />

series called<br />

Inov8 King<br />

the event will<br />

funds needed<br />

to get them<br />

and some of<br />

their Southerly<br />

Storm<br />

Orienteering<br />

team mates to<br />

Switzerland in<br />

August.<br />

“It would be<br />

a great opportunity to test ourselves<br />

and get to experience the<br />

pretty cool culture and diversity<br />

that the event brings, interacting<br />

with heaps of different people,”<br />

said Shepherd.<br />

Shepherd, a 20-year-old forestry<br />

engineering student comes<br />

from a family of orienteers and<br />

AT SPEED: Shepherd running in the Port Hills.<br />

went through both primary<br />

and secondary school travelling<br />

the country doing orienteering<br />

events.<br />

Running being a big part of<br />

orienteering, Shepherd naturally<br />

got into trail running.<br />

“I like how it’s short and fast<br />

and we get to go to some pretty<br />

cool forests around the country<br />

and overseas,” he said.<br />

Shepherd and Smith are both<br />

a part of the national under<br />

23 orienteering development<br />

team called High Performance<br />

Orienteering, a group that holds<br />

training camps and events all<br />

over the country.<br />

Smith created Crazy Kea<br />

Events, a group dedicated to running<br />

outdoor events as a way to<br />

fund raise for junior orienteering<br />

both nationally and internationally,<br />

will go to the national<br />

championships in Nelson in<br />

women will be selected to go to<br />

Switzerland.<br />

The Inov8 King and Queen of<br />

the Crater series will consist of<br />

three events, over three weeks,<br />

TOURISM BUSINESSES have<br />

seen a busy holiday period but<br />

concern is growing for some<br />

as people return to work and<br />

bookings decease.<br />

Black Cat Cruises in Akaroa<br />

had a “very flat” December and<br />

saw a 10 per cent decrease in<br />

business on last year said chief<br />

executive Paul Milligan.<br />

“[But] the weather this side<br />

of Christmas has been great<br />

and has encouraged people<br />

to get out and about and do<br />

activities.”<br />

Milligan said the Quail<br />

Island ferry in Lyttelton has<br />

been running full since Boxing<br />

Day and the Akaroa products<br />

have “seen good uptake – up<br />

slightly on last year.”<br />

“We are very aware that<br />

kiwis plan their activities<br />

last minute and based on the<br />

weather, so will see what the<br />

next few weeks brings,” he said.<br />

Pohatu Penguin Tours in<br />

Akaroa had a traumatic start<br />

to the season with the flooding<br />

causing extreme damage to the<br />

Banks Track.<br />

“We are running again now<br />

but the bay still looks like a<br />

disaster site and some of Banks<br />

Track has had to be rerouted<br />

Mixed fortunes for<br />

peninsula businesses<br />

for the rest of the season to<br />

avoid the worst damaged<br />

areas,” Pohatu Penguins<br />

director Shireen Helps<br />

said.<br />

“This last year has been<br />

awful and it is surprising<br />

we are still hanging in; <strong>2022</strong><br />

will have to be a lot better<br />

otherwise we will lose even<br />

more tourism businesses,”<br />

Helps said.<br />

Pohatu Penguin Tours also<br />

offers sea kayaking in the<br />

marine reserve and a farm stay.<br />

In November it was featured<br />

on Country Calendar.<br />

“We have had so many<br />

people saying that this is how<br />

they found us about us and the<br />

reason they came. Without this<br />

summer would have looked<br />

very different,” manager Kevin<br />

Parthonnaud said.<br />

Parthonnaud said they<br />

had a good amount of<br />

bookings over the Christmas/<br />

New Year period but from<br />

this week on, as people return<br />

to work, bookings have<br />

“plummeted.”<br />

“I am still wondering what<br />

autumn and winter will bring<br />

and am very concerned about<br />

the future of our business,” he<br />

said.

BEAUTIFUL: Community pride garden awards judge<br />

Ron Andrew and his wife Glyn.<br />

A NEAT garden that stands<br />

out from the rest is a winning<br />

formula when it comes to<br />

the community pride garden<br />

awards.<br />

The awards, which are being<br />

held for the 32nd year in a row,<br />

aim to celebrate and recognise<br />

beautiful gardens.<br />

Christchurch Beautifying<br />

Association president Ron<br />

Andrew is one of 20 judges<br />

who will be making the rounds<br />

through neighbourhoods from<br />

Saturday in search of the best<br />

looking gardens visible from the<br />

street.<br />

Andrew said one of the main<br />

things the judges look for is<br />

community pride.<br />

He said a lot of people get<br />

involved in gardening each year,<br />

particularly the elderly and the<br />

effort they put in is amazing.<br />

Andrew also said the benefits<br />

of gardening make the hard<br />

work worthwhile.<br />

“It’s healthy, it gets rid of<br />

stress, it’s enjoyable and the end<br />

results are rewarding . . . it’s<br />

the most popular past time of<br />

anything.”<br />

Partnering with the city<br />

council, community boards and<br />

the Christchurch Beautifying<br />

Association, the awards aim<br />

to encourage civic pride and<br />

recognise people who help<br />

maintain Christchurch’s<br />

reputation as the Garden City.<br />

“Many people in our<br />

communities put time and effort<br />

into their gardens each week,<br />

planting, mulching, weeding<br />

and mowing,” said city council<br />

head of community support,<br />

John Filsell.<br />

“We also have commercial<br />

property owners who go the<br />

extra mile with their public<br />

gardens.<br />

“It really makes a difference<br />

to how our streets look and<br />

how people feel about their<br />

community so we want to<br />

recognise that hard work<br />

through these awards.”<br />

Volunteer judges from the<br />

association will be judging the<br />

gardens from <strong>January</strong> 15 to<br />

February 6.<br />

Last year 682 awards were<br />

given out for outstanding<br />

gardens.<br />

The gardens will be<br />

judged on the amount of<br />

effort put into creating and<br />

maintaining it, overall tidiness<br />

and the impact of the garden on<br />

the street.<br />

Gardeners that meet these<br />

standards will receive a prize<br />

card in their mailbox, with all<br />

gardens visible from the street<br />

being eligible, both residential<br />

and commercial.<br />

Six community boards<br />

are involved in the awards:<br />

Coastal-Burwood, Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood,<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton,<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote,<br />

Papanui-Innes and Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere.<br />

Any garden within these areas<br />

and visible from the street is<br />

eligible for an award.<br />

FINAL TOUCHES: Artist Jonny Waters working on the new food truck as<br />

Jonny’s food truck<br />

masterpiece<br />

LYTTELTON ARTIST Jonny Waters has<br />

completed his latest work on a food truck<br />

promoting healthy eating.<br />

The food truck, covered in colourful<br />

cartoon fruits and vegetables, is a part of<br />

Otago University’s department of human<br />

nutrition food service paper.<br />

Students had to create a fake food truck<br />

business, and acquiring a real truck was<br />

the logical next step, said head of department<br />

Professor Lisa Houghton.<br />

Waters was approached by Houghton to<br />

do the artwork. He jumped at the chance,<br />

and had free rein with the design.<br />

“I thought it was a bit of a no-brainer<br />

really, doing a whole bunch of healthy<br />

fruit and vegetables and stuff like that and<br />

making them into funny characters,” said<br />

Waters.<br />

“One of the main cool things about this<br />

sort design is that it’s quite appealing to<br />

kids.”<br />

The food truck, which took three days<br />

to paint, is the latest of Waters’ works that<br />

can be seen across Dunedin.<br />

They include murals on the Burger<br />

Plant restaurant, the Lead Balloon cafe<br />

and the Legendairy flat in Duke St.<br />

CAROLE STEELE likens golf’s<br />

Boyle Cup to the Ranfurly<br />

Shield, an apt comparison as<br />

holders Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> zero in on<br />

matching the province’s famed<br />

rugby side’s achievement from<br />

1982-85.<br />

With 17 challengers denied<br />

this tenure, and another six on<br />

the cards following a ballot draw<br />

in March, the experienced fivestrong<br />

women’s team is close to<br />

emulating Canterbury’s streak<br />

of 25 log o’ wood defences under<br />

coach Grizz Wyllie.<br />

Had Covid-19 not intervened<br />

in 2020, Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> might<br />

have already been on the<br />

brink of eclipsing that mark as<br />

they missed hosting another<br />

half-dozen opponents at the<br />

picturesque course.<br />

Christchurch, who introduced<br />

the inter-club challenge<br />

trophy in 1914, Everglades,<br />

Rangiora, Coringa, Russley<br />

and Waimakariri Gorge were<br />

beaten last year as Charteris <strong>Bay</strong><br />

dropped only 4.5 matches from a<br />

possible 30.<br />

They started the reign by<br />

beating Greendale in April,<br />

2018, with Steele, the senior<br />

player at 81-years-old, citing<br />

home course advantage for their<br />

prolonged success in the match<br />

play format.<br />

The greens can be deceiving<br />

when putting towards the<br />

harbour, while the nine-hole<br />

layout’s terrain can also catch<br />

visitors unawares.<br />

“In reality, we’ve only got one<br />

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

funny little bunker. There are no<br />

real hard things on the course<br />

but people don’t find it easy,”<br />

Steele said.<br />

“It’s the greens and the fact it<br />

is undulating . . . people do find<br />

team aims to retain the<br />

trophy they claimed in 2018<br />

through another calendar<br />

of fixtures in <strong>2022</strong>. Chris<br />

Brodie holds the silverware<br />

before (from left) Denise<br />

Lewis and Carole Steele.<br />

that quite daunting when they’re<br />

used to flat courses. It’s a physical<br />

test, the course does keep us up<br />

to scratch fitness-wise.”<br />

retire, nor do Denise Whitbread,<br />

SPORT 13<br />

Bid to hold trophy boosted by home advantage<br />

the youngest team member at<br />

68, Julie Sims, Alice Lewis and<br />

captain Chris Brodie.<br />

Continuity is another factor<br />

with personnel changes kept to<br />

a minimum with Sharon Screen<br />

now playing for Tai Tapu and<br />

Nicky Coop on call if required as<br />

a reserve.<br />

Although Charteris <strong>Bay</strong>’s team<br />

is made up of superannuitants,<br />

Steele clarified the Boyle Cup is<br />

not a masters-style competition.<br />

“We haven’t got anyone else to<br />

choose from,” she laughed.<br />

“There’s only 15 active playing<br />

ladies and some of them are<br />

older than me.”<br />

Steele was farming in Port<br />

Levy when she joined the club 48<br />

years ago.<br />

“Back then a group of us<br />

girls said: ‘Let’s go and try<br />

this silly game called golf’,<br />

and I’m still there. I love it,” she<br />

said.<br />

Steele was a golfing novice<br />

when Charteris <strong>Bay</strong> fashioned<br />

a sequence of 34 defences in the<br />

1970s; their previous tenure only<br />

lasted a couple of games about<br />

seven years ago so they’re keen<br />

for this stretch to last as long as<br />

possible.<br />

“We say it’s the Ranfurly<br />

Shield of Canterbury ladies golf,”<br />

she said.<br />

“It’s a prestigious trophy, very<br />

special.”<br />

Treasures from the past:<br />

The Flying Pig<br />

The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade with its Dennis Ace fire appliance.<br />

internal combustion engines and<br />

pumps.<br />

The images show Lyttelton<br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade in their<br />

finest dress uniforms proudly<br />

assembled around their 1938<br />

Dennis Ace pumper – a fire<br />

engine known fondly to its many<br />

admirers around the world as<br />

‘The Flying Pig’.<br />

Built at the Dennis Brothers’<br />

Guildford factory in the UK, the<br />

Dennis Ace used a 3770cc sidevalve<br />

petrol engine with four<br />

speed gearbox, bevel pinion diff,<br />

and hydraulic brakes on a twoton<br />

lorry chassis with a setback<br />

front axle. The prominent front<br />

forward engine mounting and<br />

bonnet, or ‘snout’, allowed for<br />

tight turns around tighter city<br />

blocks and also gave the appliance<br />

its porcine nickname.<br />

Featuring two hose lockers up<br />

top with enclosed storage lockers<br />

on the running boards, and<br />

IN THE early days of firefighting<br />

in colonial New Zealand the<br />

biggest obstacle was the lack of<br />

what we modern town dwellers<br />

today mostly take completely for<br />

granted, that being water pipes<br />

with mains pressure.<br />

So bucket brigades were the<br />

way to go, from the nearest water<br />

tank or horse trough, followed<br />

later by hose reels with manual<br />

water pumps hauled by men or<br />

horses … or both.<br />

It wasn’t until around the<br />

1860s that steam-driven pumps<br />

finally arrived with the early<br />

adopter Dunedin Brigade<br />

importing the first of these in<br />

1865.<br />

Motorised fire engines began<br />

to appear in the early 1900s, with<br />

the Wanganui Brigade importing<br />

Australasia’s first self-propelled<br />

steam-driven fire engine and<br />

pumper in 1903.<br />

It was at this historical<br />

juncture, following the Fire<br />

Brigades Act of 1906, that<br />

the modern professional and<br />

volunteer fire brigade service we<br />

know and trust today began to<br />

take form.<br />

By the 1920s most of New<br />

Zealand’s fire brigades were fully<br />

motorised with many transi-<br />

263 x 180<br />

tioning over to petrol-powered<br />

brackets for three scaling ladders<br />

on top of the hose box, the Dennis<br />

Ace could fit two firefighters<br />

up front with another eight in<br />

the back.<br />

The onboard water pump<br />

could push 350 imperial gallons<br />

or 1600-litres per minute under<br />

high pressure making this one<br />

of the most efficient and popular<br />

firefighting appliances in the<br />

world at the time.<br />

Being such an iconic fire engine,<br />

the Flying Pig saw service<br />

for several decades with some<br />

brigades not letting theirs go<br />

until the 1970s.<br />

The Lyttelton Brigade’s<br />

Dennis Ace DV 3436 performed<br />

valiantly for many years before<br />

being retired to a paddock in<br />

favour of the ever newer, faster,<br />

and more technologically<br />

proficient appliances used by the<br />

brave men and women of today’s<br />

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade.<br />

FOOD 17<br />

Taste of summer with a little spice<br />

Barbecued tandoori<br />

prawns<br />

Sometimes a tasty<br />

snack is required while<br />

sitting in the sun with a<br />

cold beverage. So if that<br />

is your plan tomorrow<br />

throw some prawns in this<br />

tasty marinade today and<br />

then all you need to do<br />

tomorrow is thread them<br />

on to some skewers, fire up<br />

the barbecue and eat. You<br />

can cook the prawns on<br />

the barbecue or in a frying<br />

pan. Either way, make sure<br />

it’s quite hot so they get<br />

a light char in the short<br />

cooking time<br />

Ingredients<br />

Makes 10 skewers<br />

2 Tbsp thick plain yoghurt<br />

1 Tbsp bought tandoori paste<br />

1 Tbsp vegetable oil<br />

1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger<br />

2 cloves garlic, crushed<br />

1 tsp ground cumin<br />

1 tsp honey<br />

½ tsp ground turmeric<br />

20 large raw, peeled prawns<br />

Coriander, mint and yoghurt<br />

relish (see recipe below).<br />

Lime wedges<br />

10 thin metal or wooden<br />

skewers.<br />

Directions<br />

Stir everything, except the<br />

prawns, together in a large<br />

shallow dish. Add the prawns and<br />

turn to coat. Cover and chill for<br />

at least a few hours if possible, or<br />

up to 24 hours.<br />

Preheat a lightly oiled barbecue<br />

chargrill plate or frying pan.<br />

Thread the prawns on to<br />

skewers and cook for 1-2 minutes<br />

on each side until just cooked<br />

through. Cooking time depends<br />

on the size of the prawns.<br />

Transfer to serving platter and<br />

serve with the relish for dipping<br />

and lime wedges for squeezing<br />

over.<br />

Coriander, mint and<br />

yoghurt relish<br />

Ingredients<br />

Makes about 1 cup<br />

½ cup each coriander and mint<br />

leaves, roughly chopped<br />

½ cup thick plain yoghurt<br />

2 Tbsp rice bran oil<br />

Finely grated zest 1 lime<br />

1 Tbsp lime juice<br />

2 cloves garlic, crushed<br />

1 long green chilli, chopped<br />

½ tsp ground cumin<br />

1 tsp sea salt<br />

Directions<br />

Place all the ingredients in a<br />

food processor and process until<br />

smooth.<br />

Crunchy Spicy Chicken<br />

Nibbles with Alabama<br />

dipping sauce<br />

Summer is the time<br />

to prepare for gatherings<br />

with friends and families.<br />

It is always a good idea<br />

to have some more<br />

substantial snacks<br />

prepared for the<br />

evening to help<br />

balance out the<br />

celebratory drinks.<br />

Chicken nibbles are<br />

always a favourite and<br />

this recipe by Sophie<br />

Gray, aka the Destitute<br />

Gourmet, is quick and<br />

easy with a little twist<br />

Ingredients<br />

Serves 4–6 as a snack<br />

Ready In: 50 minutes<br />

150g spicy corn chips<br />

1 cup panko breadcrumbs<br />

2 tsp Mexican seasoning<br />

1/2 tsp ground chilli<br />

1/2 tsp dried oregano<br />

1/2 tsp salt<br />

1kg chicken nibbles (approx.<br />

24)<br />

Sophie Gray<br />

2 eggs, lightly beaten<br />

Cooking spray<br />

•Alabama dipping sauce:<br />

1 cup mayonnaise<br />

1/8 cup cider vinegar<br />

1 tbsp Dijon mustard<br />

2 tsp ‘cream style’<br />

horseradish (available in the<br />

supermarket)<br />

1 clove garlic, crushed<br />

1/4 tsp paprika<br />

Handful of fresh basil leaves,<br />

finely chopped<br />

Salt and pepper<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 190 deg<br />

C. Place the corn chips in a<br />

processor or sturdy bag, and<br />

pulse or crush to form crumbs.<br />

Add the breadcrumbs,<br />

seasonings and salt and pulse<br />

or shake bag to mix. Pour into<br />

a bowl.<br />

Dunk the chicken nibbles in<br />

the beaten egg, then coat in the<br />

crumb mix.<br />

Arrange on a baking tray<br />

lined with non-stick baking<br />

paper, and spray generously<br />

with cooking spray.<br />

Bake for 35 minutes, or till<br />

golden. Make the Alabama<br />

dipping sauce. In a mediumsized<br />

bowl, whisk all of the<br />

ingredients together until<br />

smooth. Transfer to a jar with<br />

a tight lid and refrigerate until<br />

needed (up to a week).<br />

Tip: You can use the crunchy<br />

crumb mixture for home-made<br />

chicken nuggets or even for<br />

crumbing fish.

Own a Peugeot EV in less than 60min<br />

SO YOUR OLD banger has<br />

blown up, or you just feel like it’s<br />

time to get a new car.<br />

The problem could well be<br />

that the vehicle you want is the<br />

victim of the supply issues that<br />

are plaguing most of the new car<br />

distributors and dealerships.<br />

Wait times of months ahead<br />

are pretty much the norm these<br />

days, thanks to a semi-conductor<br />

manufacturing shortage globally<br />

and shipping backlogs because of<br />

the Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

However, there is much hope,<br />

what is labelled a 60-Minute<br />

Commitment by the Armstrong<br />

Motor Group could see you<br />

driving in a premium car – new<br />

or pre-owned – in less than one<br />

hour.<br />

The initiative incorporates the<br />

choice of more than 700 vehicles<br />

from 16 different manufacturers<br />

at all Armstrong dealerships,<br />

the process is both quick and<br />

simplistic.<br />

With many of the elements<br />

needed to make a car ready<br />

for the road available on-line –<br />

registration, insurance, money<br />

transfer or finance options – these<br />

can all be arranged within the<br />

time frame, although a road test<br />

isn’t included in the 60-minute<br />

programme.<br />

The Armstrong Group has cars<br />

ready to go at any given time,<br />

they are groomed and sitting<br />

waiting for customers.<br />

A change of transport could<br />

well see a buyer behind the wheel<br />

of a new Peugeot 208, the series<br />

fully revamped this year and<br />

available now from Armstrong’s<br />

Peugeot. This evaluation focuses<br />

on the e-208, its nomenclature<br />

pointing to electric; yes, it’s a full<br />

plug-in model, there is no petrol<br />

engine, just an electric motor and<br />

battery power.<br />

The e-208 lands in the market<br />

at $61,990, as such it easily<br />

qualifies for the Government’s<br />

clean car discount of $8625.<br />

Just like its petrol-powered<br />

counterparts, the e-208 arrives<br />

with a new body shell and<br />

interior. It is state-of-the-art allthrough<br />

with a high percentage<br />

of toggle switches and digitalised<br />

functions. Saying that, it looks<br />

minimalistic, and being so<br />

is intuitive and one quickly<br />

becomes at home as a driver.<br />

The 208 as a series isn’t big, it’s<br />

a cheeky, five-door hatchback<br />

that is as much at ease in the<br />

city commute as it is on a long<br />

highway haul.<br />

However, the e-208 has charging<br />

factors to ponder. Peugeot rate it<br />

with a maximum driving distance<br />

of 348km between charges. It will<br />

take about seven hours to charge<br />

from empty to full on a domestic<br />

supply 7.4kW wallbox, or 28 hours<br />

using a three-pin power cable. If<br />

you have a type 2 cable you can<br />

hook into any of the nationwide<br />

charging ports that are springing<br />

up all over the country. A 30min<br />

COMPACT: The interior of the Peugeot e-208 incorporates a<br />

raft of new-age specification in a minimalistic environment.<br />

PEUGEOT e-208 GT: Plug-in electric vehicle that complements a new petrol model.<br />

boost will give you a zero to 80<br />

per cent charge and you can be on<br />

your way again.<br />

I never used the type 2 cable, I<br />

charged the e-208 overnight from<br />

my garage, the cable, thankfully,<br />

long enough to reach and have<br />

the garage door closed at the<br />

same time.<br />

Driving the e-208 requires little<br />

familiarity, you just hop in, select<br />

D on the drive selector (or R) and<br />

away you go. Of course, there is<br />

very little sound, just a hum from<br />

the motor – much like the sound<br />

you get on a Christchurch tram.<br />

The e-208 is sprightly, although<br />

you do have to remember if you<br />

like quick acceleration that will<br />

lessen the distance you have to<br />

travel between charges. That<br />

aside, a standstill to 100km/h<br />

time of 8.3sec is quite quick,<br />

and when you pull out for that<br />

highway overtake the mid-range<br />

response is forceful – 6sec to<br />

make <strong>12</strong>0 from 80km/h.<br />

Peugeot rate the e-208 with<br />

100kW and 260Nm, bear in mind<br />

that the latter figure is available<br />

from just 300rpm, power is<br />

instant and with the lightweight<br />

of the car (1455kg) acceleration is<br />

constantly invigorating.<br />

There are also driver-selectable<br />

drive modes, including a sport<br />

option which really livens<br />

accelerator feel.<br />

I drove the e-208 much in<br />

keeping with its design role<br />

– suburb to city commute, as<br />

well as a country excursion to<br />

• Price – Peugeot e-208 GT,<br />

$61,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4055mm; width, 1745mm;<br />

height, 1430mm<br />

• Configuration – Electric<br />

motor, front-wheeldrive,<br />

100kW, 260Nm,<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.3sec<br />

Darfield. At open road speed the<br />

e-208 sits tight on the road and<br />

imparts little noise, sure there are<br />

wind gushes around the mirrors<br />

and a hum off the tyres, but those<br />

sounds are only exacerbated<br />

by the lack of noise from the<br />

driveline, it is almost silent as you<br />

travel, just a purr from the motor<br />

as speed increases or decreases.<br />

I suffer a little from what you<br />

would call range anxiety so I<br />

didn’t venture far off the beaten<br />

track, but I did travel back to the<br />

city taking in a few tight corners<br />

near Burnham.<br />

Just like the 208, the e variant<br />

has composed handling manners,<br />

it sights well attached to the<br />

road and is remarkably stable in<br />

a corner. Drive is through the<br />

front wheels, but even with the<br />

strong torque rush there is little<br />

to feel in terms of tugging at the<br />

steering wheel, the handling feel<br />

is neutral. A lot of the latter can<br />

be attributed to the wonderful<br />

Michelin tyres, at 205/45 x 17in<br />

there isn’t a lot of rubber on the<br />

road, but steering is accurate and<br />

direct.<br />

It must also be said the e-208<br />

takes on board the engineering<br />

elements that have made Peugeot<br />

the master of balance between<br />

ride comfort and handling<br />

ability. The suspension is supple,<br />

affording a fabulous in-cabin ride.<br />

Comfort for all on board is<br />

paramount and for three in<br />

the rear it isn’t too much of a<br />

squeeze. Those up front have a<br />

lot of new-age specification at<br />

their hands – satellite navigation,<br />

keyless entry and power switch,<br />

ambient lighting, panoramic roof<br />

and radar cruise control. There’s<br />

also leather/suede-type seating<br />

material along with heated front<br />

seats.<br />

The e-208 is also badged GT,<br />

that’s a bold claim but with<br />

the way electric technology is<br />

progressing it could well be a<br />

grand touring model. Any electric<br />

car that has a travelling distance<br />

of over 300km allows you to<br />

tackle a long highway journey<br />

with relative peace of mind.<br />

In recent weeks the Kiddie<br />

family has been travelling a lot in<br />

the old Toyota, it’s a bit of a fuel<br />

guzzler and we are sure noticing<br />

the pain at fill-up with the high<br />

price of petrol at present. We<br />

know we can’t sustain those costs<br />

as I head towards retirement.<br />

It may well be time to head to<br />

Armstrong’s and take up the<br />

60-minute challenge.<br />
