MESHOW <br />

HONOURED: The coronation of King Charles III will be commemorated on Saturday with a tree planting day at Bridgestone Reserve (Papanui Bush).<br />

Thousands of natives have already been planted at the reserve by volunteers, including school pupils.<br />

A tree for King Charles III<br />

PAPANUI will commemorate<br />

the coronation of King Charles<br />

III on Saturday at 10am,<br />

with Mayor Phil Mauger<br />

planting a rimu tree in<br />

Bridgestone Reserve/Papanui<br />

Bush.<br />

He will be accompanied<br />

by Christchurch Central MP<br />

Duncan Webb, Waipapa<br />

Papanui-Innes-Central<br />

Community Board members,<br />

Rotarians and some of the<br />

countless volunteers who<br />

have planted native trees and<br />

shrubs throughout the reserve,<br />

Papanui Rotary spokesperson<br />

Jenny Haworth said.<br />

They will also inspect the<br />

nearly finished all-weather<br />

path. This will give wheelchair<br />

access to the bush – an<br />

important factor, as the reserve<br />

borders the new Cancer Society<br />

accommodation centre and<br />

the BrainTree Wellness Centre,<br />

Haworth said.<br />

She said the bush is quickly<br />

becoming a place to rest, reflect<br />

and be rejuvenated.<br />

Thousands of native trees<br />

and shrubs have already been<br />

planted in the bush, which runs<br />

through a drainage area from<br />

Langdons Rd to Sawyers Arms<br />

Rd.<br />

Haworth said the planting<br />

started six years ago as a<br />

Papanui Rotary initiative, with<br />

support from the city council.<br />

The project is led by Denis<br />

McMurtrie.<br />

Hundreds of hours have been<br />

spent by teams of volunteers<br />

planting the native trees and<br />

shrubs. Over time, the project<br />

has involved many community<br />

groups, which have supported<br />

the planting through funding<br />

and volunteer hours.<br />

Haworth said the reserve is<br />

already attracting native birds.<br />

It has also become a valuable<br />

tool to teach schools and<br />

community groups about the<br />

original ecology of the area<br />

before the trees were felled to<br />

build Christchurch.<br />

Saturday will be a<br />

community day of action at the<br />

reserve, with planting before<br />

and after the ceremony.<br />

• Papanui Bush<br />

community planting<br />

day is on Saturday from<br />

9am-12.30pm. For more<br />

Kiri and Lou explore what<br />

it means to be a child<br />

THE ANIMATED stars of<br />

an award-winning children’s<br />

television show will explore<br />

what it means to be a child in a<br />

new library exhibition.<br />

City council head of libraries<br />

and information Carolyn<br />

Robertson said ‘Kiri and Lou<br />

at the Library’, which opens on<br />

Saturday at Tūranga’s Te Pito<br />

Huarewa/Southbase Gallery,<br />

will showcase the locally-made<br />

stop motion series.<br />

“Immerse yourself within<br />

the Ōtautahi-created series<br />

and sit and savour the world of<br />

claymation with your whānau<br />

for a while,” said Robertson.<br />

“Explore the indoor forest<br />

environment in the gallery, curl<br />

up with a pukapuka (book)<br />

and take part in interactive<br />

activities and more within the<br />

sights and sounds of the forest.”<br />

The exhibition runs until<br />

October 22 and will feature<br />

activities for children of all<br />

ages, with an exclusive new<br />

animation and behind-thescenes<br />

production video.<br />

The short animation film,<br />

A Peaceful Moment, will be<br />

played on the big screen after<br />

it was specially created for the<br />

exhibition.<br />

“There will also be a chance<br />

to take an up-close look at<br />

the Kiri and Lou characters<br />

and a sneak peek into the<br />

early concept sketches of how<br />

the series came to life,” said<br />

Robertson.<br />

A variety of activities,<br />

including stories with Kiri<br />

herself, papercraft and a<br />

themed scavenger hunt, will<br />

also be offered this weekend.<br />

“The highlight of the<br />

exhibition opening is having<br />

Olivia Tennet, the real-life voice<br />

of Kiri, read to our tamariki<br />

and let their imaginations run<br />

wild,” Robertson said.<br />

The exhibition will have<br />

strong literacy elements, such<br />

as storytime sessions.<br />

IMMERSED: Kiri and Lou at the Library opens at Tūranga<br />

on Saturday. Below – Kiri and Lou animation director<br />

Dale Hayward and Poppy put the exhibition together.<br />

Bridging the gap: Connecting<br />

One of eastern<br />

Christchurch’s most<br />

rundown bridges will<br />

soon get a makeover.<br />

Brian Donovan from<br />

the New Brighton<br />

Residents Association<br />

reports on what is<br />

happening<br />

with the<br />

Pages Rd<br />

bridge, and<br />

delves into<br />

the history<br />

of bridges<br />

in the area<br />

WE ARE not far from seeing<br />

the concept plans for the new<br />

Pages Rd bridge, out for public<br />

submission in July-August.<br />

This will be one of the most<br />

important constructions for<br />

the east in many years and will<br />

shape the design of the immediate<br />

roads in and around it – and<br />

will possibly incorporate a welcome<br />

sculpture.<br />

As well as pushing the<br />

case for our locals, the New<br />

Brighton Residents Association<br />

occasionally dabbles in a bit<br />

of lightweight history about<br />

the area. Here, we feature local<br />

bridges feeding people into the<br />

coastal suburb from the time the<br />

first European settlement ships<br />

arrived in Lyttelton.<br />

Seaview Rd or Pages Rd<br />

bridge<br />

A route was put through by the<br />

privately owned New Brighton<br />

Tramway Company. Horse trams<br />

ran from Christchurch to New<br />

Brighton between 1887 and 1905,<br />

after which the Christchurch<br />

Tramway Board took over and<br />

electrified the line.<br />

At the entrance a gate<br />

reinforced the company’s<br />

ownership of the structure,<br />

where a toll was collected for a<br />

short time before it became a<br />

public thoroughfare.<br />

The company’s line was later<br />

opened as a public road, Pages<br />

Rd, named after tramway<br />

company director, Joshua Page<br />

(1826-1900).<br />

The original Seaview or Pages<br />

Rd bridge was a flat bridge. It<br />

was replaced at the beginning<br />

of the 1930s by the present high<br />

bridge. This was designed by H.<br />

F. Toogood, father of television<br />

personality Selwyn “money or<br />

the bag” Toogood.<br />

The hump in the bridge<br />

came at the behest of Richard<br />

Bedward Owen, a tailor and<br />

conservationist, known as ‘River<br />

Bank Owen’, who argued that<br />

REPLACEMENT: Concept<br />

plans for the new Pages<br />

Rd bridge will be out for<br />

public submission in July.<br />

boats could come ‘sailing or<br />

steaming with the tide’ via the<br />

Estuary to Christchurch. They<br />

never have, but there are plans<br />

to run wakas to New Brighton<br />

via the Ōtākaro/Avon River<br />

Corridor.<br />

Bower bridge<br />

Bower bridge by the Bower<br />

Tavern first opened in 1876<br />

(right). The present Bower bridge<br />

was completed in 1942.<br />

In the 1920s and 1930s the<br />

inter-city bus service pioneered<br />

transport on Wainoni Rd, across<br />

the Bower bridge to North New<br />

Brighton and New Brighton.<br />

It was a private service, very<br />

popular and cheap, and ran on<br />

the smell of an oily rag. It was<br />

managed and owned by Intercity<br />

Motors with headquarters on<br />

Bowhill Rd.<br />

The bus company was<br />

in competition with the<br />

Christchurch Tramway Board’s<br />

trams on the Pages Rd route<br />

and developed into a ‘bus war’.<br />

Trams and buses would try to<br />

beat each other to pick up the<br />

next passenger, a far cry from<br />

bus driver shortages and cuts in<br />

services today.<br />

the city with seaside suburbs<br />

residents the long journey up to<br />

Central Brighton. The present<br />

bridge was opened in 1981.<br />

South Brighton bridge,<br />

Bridge St<br />

Opened in 1927, it was the<br />

result of the work of New<br />

Brighton Borough councillor,<br />

Herbert Arundel Glasson.<br />

Glasson lived in South<br />

Brighton and persuaded fellow<br />

residents to pay extra rates to the<br />

New Brighton Borough Council,<br />

providing a South Brighton<br />

bridge was built.<br />

The resulting small wooden<br />

bridge saved South Brighton<br />

Estuary bridge<br />

Who has crossed this bridge ?<br />

Nobody, as the Estuary<br />

bridge has never been built despite<br />

proposals and plans by various<br />

people over the years.<br />

James Mawson Stewart (1883-<br />

1949) was born in New South<br />

Wales and came with his family<br />

to Christchurch as a small boy.<br />

He began his working life as a<br />

clerk and later cashier at a venerable<br />

institution, the Christchurch<br />

Gas Company.<br />

While still a young man, he<br />

set up the firm of accountants,<br />

Stewart Beckett and Co. He went<br />

on to earn the reputation as ‘one<br />

of the best-known businessmen<br />

in Christchurch’.<br />

In his youth, Stewart and his<br />

brother Arthur bached at New<br />

Brighton, and retained a commercial<br />

interest in the area.<br />

During World War 1, they were<br />

major figures in the South New<br />

Brighton Land Company, which<br />

consisted of small shareholders,<br />

and the Southshore Syndicate,<br />

whose members were substantial<br />

businessmen.<br />

The two companies bought the<br />

wasteland where the suburb of<br />

Southshore now stands and sold<br />

it at a low price. It was stipulated<br />

that every purchaser of a section<br />

should donate 15 pounds towards<br />

the cost of a bridge to take people<br />

across the Estuary to Sumner.<br />

Seven hundred pounds was<br />

collected, plans drawn up and a<br />

track – the future Rockinghorse<br />

Rd – hacked out of the wilderness.<br />

Amid the battles of trying to<br />

find investors, residents on the<br />

Redcliffs/Moncks Bay side were<br />

less enthusiastic about hordes of<br />

‘uncouth’ travellers coming from<br />

New Brighton.<br />

After the war, the company and<br />

syndicate were wound up as momentum<br />

waned. James continued<br />

to hope that the area might<br />

progress, and in 1927 attempted<br />

DESIGN: New<br />

Brighton<br />

Residents<br />

Association’s<br />

concept<br />

sculpture<br />

for the new<br />

Pages Rd<br />

bridge.<br />

to persuade the Government the<br />

bridge should be erected at public<br />

expense.<br />

The property owners became<br />

very disillusioned with the<br />

outcome and many sold up and<br />

moved on.<br />

However, the new Pages Rd<br />

bridge will be delivering greater<br />

numbers of people in and out of<br />

the wider coastal area.<br />

The New Brighton Residents<br />

Association has tossed in a few<br />

concept ideas for a sculpture<br />

signifying entry into our coastal<br />

paradise to get the ball rolling.<br />

historian Richard Greenaway for<br />

CONTEST: Christchurch under-18 Black’s wing defence<br />

makes an intercept during their win over Southland<br />

Country at the King’s Birthday tournament on Sunday.<br />

SUCCESS: The Christchurch under-16 Red and Black teams won all of their matches<br />

before meeting in the Tupuranga championship final on Monday.<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham Christchurch Netball Centre<br />

development lead Julia van Dyk<br />

said the Tupuranga (meaning<br />

‘a place to grow’) championship<br />

“uses netball as the waka for<br />

our rangatahi to grow and learn<br />

together”.<br />

The three-day<br />

tournament was first<br />

played last year. It is<br />

primarily focused on<br />

the development of<br />

CHRISTCHURCH have<br />

dominated the second edition of<br />

the Tupuranga under-16 netball<br />

championship.<br />

The A grade final was contested<br />

by two of the city’s representative<br />

teams with Christchurch<br />

Red taking out the top grade,<br />

beating Christchurch Black 29-16<br />

at Pioneer Stadium on Monday.<br />

Christchurch White won the B<br />

grade with a 33-27 victory over<br />

North Canterbury.<br />

The Red and Black teams both<br />

went through pool play unbeaten<br />

over the weekend before encountering<br />

each other in the final.<br />

The White team suffered only<br />

one loss all weekend, going down<br />

33-24 to Selwyn B.<br />

players who wouldn’t<br />

otherwise have opportunities<br />

to play in<br />

representative tournaments.<br />

Julia<br />

van Dyk<br />

It was part of a busy weekend<br />

for Christchurch Netball Centre<br />

with the annual under-18 King’s<br />

Birthday tournament played at<br />

Bishopdale YMCA on Sunday.<br />

Although there were no finals,<br />

the two under-18 Christchurch<br />

teams had some big wins and<br />

close losses.<br />

The under-18 Red team<br />

beat Central Lakes 35-20 and<br />

Marlborough 44-18, but lost to<br />

Invercargill (39-33) and Dunedin<br />

(48-35).<br />

Although the under-18 Black<br />

team only managed one win<br />

over Southland Country (37-21),<br />

they suffered close losses to<br />

Invercargill (29-27) and Central<br />

Lakes (25-23).<br />

Both under-18 teams will<br />

contest two tournaments later<br />

this month before heading to the<br />

Celebration Box Netball New<br />

Zealand under-18 championships<br />

in Hamilton from July 10-13,<br />

where Christchurch Red will<br />

In my previous article, I mentioned<br />

a career highlight which included<br />

the chance to present at an<br />

international conference. In it I<br />

posed the question: “what exactly<br />

would I speak about?” And now, 24<br />

hours away from its delivery, I’d love<br />

to tell you what I decided on.<br />

My selected topic is ‘elite performance in<br />

changing times’ and with that I’m going<br />

to share with my audience some of the<br />

principles behind that choice. But first,<br />

consider this for a moment: all of us live<br />

in changing times, not just in my own<br />

profession but in everyone’s everyday<br />

life. There are a number of elements<br />

contributing to this and I’ll go through<br />

them.<br />

Attention spans are painstakingly short.<br />

The average attention span is said to<br />

be 8 minutes and 25 seconds, with a<br />

possibility of 20 minutes at the highest<br />

level and a mere two seconds at the<br />

lowest; and just for general interest,<br />

Generation Z comes in at a skimpy 2.7<br />

minutes. Which will be no surprise to<br />

many parents who feel like they’re not<br />

being listened to, because statistically<br />

speaking, they’re not.<br />

Next is the reality that living and<br />

working in a post-Covid world, there’s<br />

a certain level of stress, uncertainty and<br />

heightened anxiety that naturally exists<br />

for most of us.<br />

When you add the elements of higher<br />

expectation, entitlement, and the belief<br />

that everything we want should be<br />

delivered instantaneously, you create<br />

a powder keg of emotions. The point<br />

being that any performance, let alone<br />

elite performance, is challenging no<br />

matter where you find yourself.<br />

So how do you grow an elite business,<br />

elite performance and a culture that<br />

cultivates just that without losing<br />

yourself and your people in the process?<br />

I’ve come to rely on some personal<br />

philosophies backed up by years of<br />

mentorship from one of New Zealand’s<br />

top mental skill coaches, Gilbert Enoka.<br />

A little, sometimes a lot, of trial and<br />

error, and some significant strategies<br />

that I’ve seen work brilliantly in our own<br />

company.<br />

Let’s start with world-class one-on-ones<br />

that allow for connection, recognition<br />

and challenge rather than merely<br />

overviewing tasks or ticking boxes. I<br />

love this aspect of my role and I’ve seen<br />

people thrive under this stewardship.<br />

Equally important is the acceptance<br />

that old ways won’t open new doors.<br />

Although I do know there are no magic<br />

solutions, if you just do what you have<br />

always done you will get the same<br />

results – and over time these will erode.<br />

Innovation, professional and personal<br />

development, and a strong vision are<br />

important as without them you can<br />

stagnate. Edward de Bono had this to<br />

say: “there is no doubt that creativity<br />

is the most important human resource<br />

of all. Without it there would be no<br />

progress just a forever repetition of the<br />

same patterns.”<br />

I’m also going to highlight the need to<br />

expect less and prepare more, a narrative<br />

that should encourage everyone to<br />

stop looking at the person across from<br />

them to bring all the answers and start<br />

contributing more themselves, knowing<br />

that this all starts with preparation.<br />

Finally, I hope to conclude with a mantra<br />

that it is vision than excites people, not<br />

numbers, and I’ve seen this evidenced<br />

in real life time and time again. Numbers<br />

on their own only appeal to a small<br />

group of people and, in fact, numeracy<br />

has the power to dampen enthusiasm<br />

rather than lift it.<br />

There you have it. I hope I’m making<br />

sense. I hope I’m able to bring my best<br />

self to the occasion and I hope I bring a<br />

little bit of Kiwi magic to the moment.<br />

season’s richest flavour<br />

pairings with these two<br />

Pork and halloumi balls<br />

Blackberry and apple<br />

trifles<br />

Mince lets us to take dinner<br />

in so many directions. With<br />

these meatballs, it is worth<br />

letting them rest for a while in<br />

the fridge after shaping, as they<br />

are less likely to fall apart during<br />

cooking. Turn them carefully<br />

in the pan, letting them form a<br />

golden crust on the base before<br />

moving them. Use a coarse<br />

grater for the halloumi, so the<br />

cheese melts and seasons the<br />

pork as it cooks.<br />

Serves 3-4<br />

Ingredients<br />

3 spring onions<br />

1 Tbsp and a little more of<br />

groundnut oil<br />

2 cloves garlic<br />

grated zest of 1 lemon<br />

2 small red chillies<br />

4g dried mint<br />

450g coarsely minced pork<br />

200g halloumi<br />

For the figs:<br />

2 medium onions<br />

2 Tbsp groundnut or olive oil,<br />

for frying<br />

1 Tbsp thyme leaves<br />

6 small figs<br />

TASTY: Follow up these hearty meatballs with a warming<br />

dessert made from in-season apples. PHOTOS: GETTY<br />

Directions<br />

Cut the spring onions into thin<br />

rounds, then cook them in the<br />

oil in a shallow pan for 5 minutes,<br />

until soft and translucent.<br />

Peel the garlic and crush to a<br />

paste, then stir into the spring<br />

onions. Add the grated zest and<br />

a generous grinding of salt and<br />

pepper. Finely chop the chillies,<br />

then add to the onions and mint<br />

and remove from the heat.<br />

Add the minced pork to the<br />

seasonings. Coarsely grate<br />

the halloumi, then add to the<br />

mixture and mix well. Shape the<br />

mixture into balls about the size<br />

of a golf ball and put in the fridge<br />

for 20 minutes.<br />

Warm the oil in a shallow<br />

nonstick pan, add some of the<br />

pork balls and let them colour<br />

one side then gently roll them<br />

and brown the other. Move the<br />

balls around from time to time<br />

to brown evenly, then transfer to<br />

an ovenproof dish. Repeat with<br />

the rest of the balls.<br />

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.<br />

Peel and finely chop the onions,<br />

then add to the vacated pan,<br />

with a little more oil if necessary,<br />

and fry them for 10-12 minutes<br />

until they are starting to soften.<br />

Roughly chop the thyme, then<br />

add to the onions, then roughly<br />

chop the figs and also add them.<br />

Cook the apples using only a<br />

little water, letting them simmer<br />

to a soft and fluffy puree. Add<br />

the blackberries at the end, so<br />

they don’t overcook, mashing<br />

them a little so their juices lightly<br />

bleed into the apples. Give the<br />

sherry and orange juice a little<br />

time to soak into the sponge<br />

fingers to make sure they are<br />

thoroughly saturated. Like most<br />

trifles, the longer the layers of<br />

fruit, sponge and cream are<br />

together, the better the result.<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

150g sponge fingers or ratafia<br />

biscuits (almond macaroons)<br />

80ml dry sherry<br />

Juice of 2 medium oranges<br />

For the apples:<br />

1.5kg cooking apples<br />

100ml water<br />

2 Tbsp caster sugar<br />

200g blackberries<br />

For the cream:<br />

150g double cream<br />

125g mascarpone<br />

1 Tbsp icing sugar<br />

A few drops of vanilla extract<br />

Directions<br />

Peel the apples and cut into<br />

large chunks. Put them in a nonreactive<br />

saucepan with the water<br />

and sugar, set over a moderate<br />

heat and bring to the boil. Lower<br />

the heat and leave for 10-15<br />

minutes, with the occasional stir,<br />

until the apples have become<br />

soft enough to mash to a puree.<br />

Stir in the blackberries and<br />

crush lightly with a fork. Lightly<br />

whip the cream until it starts to<br />

thicken. It should be just thick<br />

enough to slide off the spoon.<br />

Stir in the mascarpone, icing<br />

sugar and vanilla extract.<br />

Break up the sponge fingers<br />

and put them in the bottom of<br />

four large glasses or glass bowls.<br />

Mix together the sherry and<br />

orange juice, then pour over the<br />

sponge fingers and leave to soak<br />

in.<br />

Spoon the apple and<br />

blackberry mixture on top of the<br />

sponge. Place a spoonful of the<br />

mascarpone cream on top of the<br />

apple, leave for an hour in the<br />

fridge to settle before eating.<br />

Volvo’s EV SUV– best of many worlds<br />

MY FIRST evaluation drive was<br />

in 1988. I remember it vividly, it<br />

was a five-cylinder petrol-fuelled<br />

Audi 90 and I picked it up from<br />

the Archibalds showroom.<br />

Nearly 35 years later, my<br />

last evaluation drive was also<br />

presented to me from staff at<br />

Archibalds, not an Audi but a<br />

Volvo – a C40 Recharge – a fully<br />

electric vehicle to be exact.<br />

The C40 Recharge is a crossover<br />

wagon, one that has a coupetype<br />

shape but tall enough to<br />

be a sport utility vehicle. But its<br />

main claim is that of its propulsion,<br />

it has no petrol engine, it<br />

has a motor over the front axle<br />

and drives through the front<br />

wheels only.<br />

A point to note with the C40’s<br />

driveline and platform is it<br />

shares much componentry with<br />

that of the Polestar 2; Volvo has<br />

a major interest in the Chinese<br />

company. That will allow buyers<br />

a choice, the prices are similar<br />

at $85,900 (C40 Recharge) and<br />

from $68,990 to $93,900 for the<br />

Polestar 2, yet you can make<br />

the decision of whether a sedan<br />

type body structure or an SUV<br />

is right for you. It is interesting<br />

to note here the C40 Recharge<br />

won’t get you any Government<br />

Clean Car Programme rebate.<br />

Inside, the C40 Recharge has<br />

immediate similarities with<br />

Polestar as well, the large screen<br />

graphics and interface are almost<br />

identical. Specification levels on<br />

the Volvo are extensive and, of<br />

course, you get all the clever safety<br />

kit that Volvo has long been<br />

revered for in all of its models.<br />

Volvo has indicated its intention<br />

to produce electric models<br />

only by 2030 and with Polestar’s<br />

input that would seem quite<br />

achievable. The C40 Recharge is<br />

the first full EV out of the blocks<br />

and it is a worthy trendsetter.<br />

Volvo claims 170kW of power<br />

and 330Nm of torque, both<br />

outputs available instantaneously.<br />

That’s where EVs come<br />

into their own, they are dynamic<br />

and forceful. Volvo also claims<br />

a 7.4sec standstill to 100km/h<br />

time. (If that’s not quick enough<br />

for you, there is a higher output<br />

Ultimate model at $100,900,<br />

which cuts out that time in<br />

4.7sec.)<br />

And the C40 Recharge in<br />

entry-level form still gets great<br />

range. It can travel up to 438km<br />

on a single charge, there’s a<br />

69kWh battery system sitting<br />

in the platform of the car, and<br />

that is a lot of capacity. Bear in<br />

mind most EV manufacturers<br />

recommend 80 per cent as being<br />

full capacity, in a bid to increase<br />

battery longevity.<br />

It’s the little out of the box<br />

ideas that I really liked in the<br />

C40 Recharge. One in particular<br />

is the textured map of Gothenburg<br />

that is inlaid into the dash<br />

panel in front of the passenger<br />

seat. If you are ever in Sweden it<br />

is something you could relate to.<br />

As mentioned, this is my<br />

last motor vehicle evaluation.<br />

Throughout the last 35 years I’ve<br />

been on an incredible journey,<br />

I’ve driven many thousands of<br />

the latest and greatest models<br />

and it’s been an absolute thrill<br />

and an experience I have never<br />

tired of as I head into retirement<br />

from the publishing industry.<br />

By way of a thank you, I’d<br />

like to acknowledge all of the<br />

feedback I’ve received, motoring<br />

journalism is obviously something<br />

that is well read, respected<br />

and opinion-dividing. I hope<br />

you’ve enjoyed reading my columns<br />

as much as I have enjoyed<br />

writing them. For those who have<br />

asked me what is the best vehicle<br />

for you, I also hope I’ve steered<br />

you in the right direction.<br />
