Zephyr<br />

releases<br />

debut<br />

single<br />

• By Briar Allen<br />

A RISING young rock band<br />

is set to release its debut single<br />

tomorrow.<br />

Former and current students<br />

from Christchurch Boys’ High,<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High and<br />

Avonside Girls’ High Schools<br />

make up the band Zephyr.<br />

(She Ain’t Got No) Shame is the<br />

band’s first single since forming<br />

in <strong>20</strong>22. It follows their success at<br />

last year’s Rockquest, where they<br />

were third in the national final.<br />

They also opened the Selwyn<br />

Sounds music festival in March.<br />

There, they performed to<br />

about 5000 people and shared<br />

the stage with renowned New<br />

Zealand musicians Sir Dave<br />

Dobbyn, Stellar, Mi-Sex and Gin<br />

Wigmore.<br />

Stores<br />

targeted<br />

in crime<br />

spree<br />

CUTTS RD Mini Mart in Russley<br />

was raided during a smash and<br />

grab spree across the city early on<br />

Monday morning.<br />

Seven business were targeted,<br />

including stores in Halswell and<br />

Wigram.<br />

Cutts Rd Mini Mart owner<br />

Kinjan Shah heard a large “bang”<br />

at 6am and quickly discovered his<br />

shop had been hit.<br />

“I’m always reading the news<br />

and I know the ram-raids happen<br />

so I know it’s going to happen,<br />

they target each and every store,”<br />

he said.<br />

Shah ran to check his shop<br />

and found a car planted in the<br />

building’s entrance.<br />

Footage from the incident<br />

showed the car attempting to<br />

breach the shop entrance but<br />

being unable to.<br />

The break-in followed another<br />

at the MetroMart on Sparks Rd,<br />

Halswell, about 3am, when a large<br />

hole was smashed into the glass<br />

shop front and shards scattered<br />

inside the store’s entrance. Fifteen<br />

minutes later, another shop on<br />

Wigram Rd was hit.<br />

Said Shah of the break-in at his<br />

Cutts Rd store: “The emotion of<br />

my business friends – we feel this<br />

problem but we know it’s going to<br />

happen.<br />

“We have to face the problem<br />

now, that’s normal these days.<br />

When is it going to stop?”<br />

School celebrates with<br />

kite-making and kai<br />

• By Briar Allen<br />

WHĀNAU HAVE been invited<br />

along to celebrate Matariki at<br />

Redwood Primary School.<br />

The school will host a range of<br />

activities from 11am to 2.30pm<br />

tomorrow for pupils, family and<br />

caregivers.<br />

Principal Nick Gunn said the<br />

school has run events in the<br />

past to celebrate Matariki and,<br />

even though the holiday landed<br />

before the school term started,<br />

they still wanted to mark the<br />

occasion.<br />

“We will have a range of<br />

activities but one of the main<br />

ones is kite-making and flying,<br />

which involves the children<br />

making a small kite and flying<br />

it around a course that visits<br />

a post that represents each<br />

one of the stars that make up<br />

Matariki.”<br />

Gunn said there will also be<br />

shared kai with veges and fruit<br />

from the school garden used to<br />

make soups, muffins and cake.<br />

“It is really important to<br />

celebrate Matariki as it is a time<br />

to reflect and plan ahead as<br />

well as recognise our treaty. It<br />

provides a chance for the whole<br />

school to come together and<br />

learn.”<br />

Selwood, supported by a team<br />

“It is a great opportunity for<br />

families to spend time with<br />

their kids and enjoy being at<br />

the school and getting involved,<br />

Covid-19 more under control.<br />

Students devise plan<br />

to make streets safer<br />

VILLA MARIA College students<br />

and staff have come up with a<br />

plan to make the streets near the<br />

school safer.<br />

Deputy principal Mike Baugh<br />

said the plan started with senior<br />

students and the student council<br />

raising concerns about their<br />

safety when<br />

travelling to<br />

school.<br />

“Our<br />

concerns<br />

revolved<br />

around the<br />

speed limit on<br />

Yaldhurst Rd,<br />

as well as the<br />

lack of signage<br />

indicating<br />

Mike Baugh<br />

there is a school zone and a speed<br />

limit change and the narrow<br />

congestion on Brodie St due to<br />

parking on either side,” he said.<br />

They have been working with<br />

the city council’s community<br />

travel advisor George Booty<br />

to develop a travel plan that<br />

improves road safety and<br />

encourages the whole school<br />

community to use active modes<br />

of transport to get to and from<br />

school.<br />

Baugh said even though some<br />

people may have issues with<br />

a speed limit change, it will<br />

improve safety for their students.<br />

“It will make a significant<br />

difference and we will continue<br />

to promote traffic and students’<br />

safety around the school.<br />

Students’ safety is our first<br />

priority.”<br />

Baugh said they presented<br />

their travel plan to the Waipuna<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board, the city<br />

council and Waka Kotahi NZ<br />

Transport Agency, which came<br />

back with some suggestions.<br />

These included promoting<br />

‘Park and Stride’, which involves<br />

parents parking and dropping<br />

their children off so they can walk<br />

the last bit to school, instead of<br />

dropping them right at the front<br />

gate, to help ease congestion.<br />

Said Baugh: “(The plan<br />

included) adding more signage to<br />

indicate the speed limit change<br />

on Yaldhurst Rd from 60km/h<br />

to 50km/h, with the city council<br />

and transport agency looking<br />

into changing the speed limit to<br />

30km/h during school hours.”<br />

Baugh said Brodie St will not<br />

be altered in terms of parking. He<br />

has been informed the changes<br />

will be made late <strong>20</strong>23 to early<br />

<strong>20</strong>24.<br />

He also said it was nice they got<br />

a response so quickly.<br />

“It has been an overall<br />

positive experience, especially<br />

for the students who were<br />

involved as it showed them that<br />

they could voice these issues and<br />

be listened to.”<br />

Team leader<br />

provides<br />

books with<br />

an extra life<br />

WITH A background as a<br />

bookbinder and as a trainer on<br />

the construction of commercial<br />

books, each day is different for<br />

the city council’s preservation<br />

and distribution team leader<br />

Jane Hackett.<br />

“Whether I’m organising<br />

my team to deliver books and<br />

exhibition items across the city,<br />

or I’m spending time repairing<br />

books, no day is ever the same,”<br />

said Hackett.<br />

Hackett said her team works<br />

hard to make sure books are<br />

relocated to fill customers’ holds,<br />

and to give books that need to<br />

remain in the collection an extra<br />

life.<br />

“Every library book is examined<br />

on return and will be passed along<br />

to my team if it is in need of repair.<br />

We’ll determine what needs<br />

to be done and then restore it to<br />

the best of our ability.<br />

“When I come home with a<br />

huge smile on my face, my husband<br />

can always tell I’ve been repairing<br />

books. I love this aspect<br />

of my job, it’s my happy place.”<br />

Books that are no longer<br />

needed in the collection skip the<br />

repair process and instead are<br />

kept for the Christchurch City<br />

Libraries Big Bargain Book Sale<br />

– an event planned and managed<br />

by Hackett.<br />

Hackett said the preservation<br />

and distribution team deliver a<br />

selection of books to at least 10<br />

rest homes each fortnight.<br />

“This is a joint effort with our<br />

outreach team who put these selections<br />

together, and we deliver<br />

them.<br />

“To encourage tamariki to engage<br />

with books and reading, we<br />

also deliver a range of children’s<br />

books to low decile preschools<br />

three times a term.”<br />

Hackett said another significant<br />

part of her role is to<br />

manage the distribution of books<br />

between the libraries, using two<br />

trucks to visit <strong>20</strong> sites a day,<br />

Monday to Friday.<br />

“During library closures, we<br />

work alongside the facilities team<br />

to assist with the reconfiguration<br />

of shelving, moving furniture<br />

and equipment around and<br />

minor maintenance. We also<br />

provide valuable help with the<br />

setting up of exhibitions across<br />

the network.”<br />

The collaboration list continues<br />

as Hackett works together<br />

with the archivists at CCL and<br />

the city council.<br />

“This is an important aspect<br />

as I can provide advice on how<br />

material can be preserved for the<br />

future – whether this is by creating<br />

specialised archival boxes for<br />

loose-leaf material, or mending<br />

books with fragile bindings.<br />

“We work hard each day to<br />

keep the collections looking at<br />

their best, and to move books<br />

around the city to refresh<br />

collections on a regular basis and<br />

to meet customer demand.”<br />

LIFE SAVING: A defibrillator has been installed at Cotswold<br />

Mātāhae School. Celebrating the installation were Jackie<br />

Foulkes (Hato Hone St John); Justin, Kristal and Ayden<br />

(Community Family Support Taituara – Canterbury Heart<br />

Kids), Marie Bianco (school administrator) and Chris Smith<br />

(school principal).<br />

Life saving device now<br />

available at school<br />

AN AUTOMATED external<br />

defibrillator has been installed at<br />

Cotswold Mātāhae School.<br />

Administrator Marie Bianco<br />

said it had been a long-term<br />

project for the Bishopdale<br />

school.<br />

“We wanted to have this<br />

vital piece of life saving<br />

equipment available for our<br />

staff and students as well as<br />

our wider community, outside<br />

of school and business hours.<br />

“We were lucky enough<br />

to be chosen . . . to have the<br />

AED installed due to Cotswold<br />

Mātāhae School having Ayden, a<br />

very special heart child enrolled<br />

at our school.”<br />

The device was funded by<br />

Hato Hone St John; Embracing<br />

Hearts, a charity that donates<br />

defibrillators to schools; Heart<br />

Kids NZ, which supports<br />

families impacted by childhood<br />

heart conditions, and the school<br />

board of trustees.<br />

The AED is located at the<br />

entrance to the school office at 50<br />

Cotswold Ave.<br />

It is available to the<br />

community 24/7 and has<br />

been added to the AED<br />

locations app, making it easy<br />

to find in an emergency via<br />

aedlocations.co.nz<br />

• From page 1<br />

Guitarist Reuben Anderson,<br />

17, bassist Scarlett Robson, 17,<br />

and drummer Mya Cawood,<br />

18, have been friends since they<br />

were 13.<br />

Vocalist Cleo Cavell, 17, joined<br />

the band after being approached<br />

by Robson to be their singer.<br />

Anderson said it is quite<br />

exciting to be releasing their<br />

debut song.<br />

“It has been a big process but<br />

very happy it’s happening,” he<br />

said.<br />

He said it has taken awhile<br />

because they have been learning<br />

about the process and what<br />

goes on behind the scenes of<br />

recording a song.<br />

“We want to thank Chris<br />

van de Geer from the band<br />

Stellar* for helping us with the<br />

distribution and everyone at<br />

Big Pop Records and Regan<br />

Barker for helping us with the<br />

recording.”<br />

Cavell said the biggest<br />

obstacle was deciding on the<br />

cover art for the single.<br />

“When you have four people<br />

with all different visions and<br />

styles it can take a while to agree<br />

on something,” she said.<br />

Originally the band was called<br />

The Jhets but they changed the<br />

YOUNG ROCKERS: Zephyr members (from left) drummer<br />

Mya Cawood, guitarist Reuben Anderson, singer Cleo<br />

Cavell and bassist Scarlett Robson.<br />

name as people kept thinking<br />

they were like Bennie and<br />

the Jets. “We didn’t like the<br />

association and we didn’t like<br />

how it wasn’t original, so from<br />

the beginning of this year we<br />

have been Zephyr, which Mya<br />

came up with and we all liked,”<br />

she said.<br />

The single follows the story<br />

of a young female waltzing her<br />

way through life in a groupie<br />

fashion with attacking guitar<br />

riffs, a pounding bass, powerful<br />

drumming and a stunning vocal<br />

range.<br />

With three of the musicians<br />

still at school, Anderson<br />

and Cavell said they hope to<br />

continue the band for a while.<br />

“The goal is to write as much<br />

music as we can and get it<br />

recorded and released,” he said.<br />

• (She Ain’t Got No)<br />

Shame will be available on<br />

Spotify, iTunes and Apple<br />

Music and can be presaved<br />

on their Facebook<br />

and Instagram pages, or<br />

you can catch the band<br />

live at The Bower in the<br />

beer garden from 1pm on<br />

Dive into delicious bounty from the sea<br />

Colleen O’Connor<br />

turns her attention to<br />

delectable kai moana<br />

Seafood chowder<br />

Serves 6<br />

Ingredients<br />

¾ cup dry white wine<br />

1.5kg shellfish (I used mussels<br />

and clams)<br />

1 large potato, cubed 1cm<br />

50g butter<br />

1 leek, diced<br />

1 carrot, diced<br />

2 clove garlic, chopped<br />

½ cup flour<br />

1 litre fish stock<br />

1 bay leaf<br />

2 sprigs thyme<br />

250ml cream<br />

250ml full milk<br />

300g smoked fish (I used<br />

kingfish)<br />

1 fillet of white fish (I used blue<br />

cod)<br />

1 fillet of salmon<br />

Chopped parsley to garnish<br />

Sea salt & pepper<br />

Directions<br />

In a large pot, heat the wine<br />

and add the shellfish, cover, and<br />

steam until the shells open. (I<br />

usually stand ready to extract<br />

each one as it opens with a pair<br />

of tongs). Set the shellfish aside.<br />

Reduce the wine by half then set<br />

aside.<br />

Meanwhile, tip the potatoes<br />

into a small pot of boiling water<br />

to cover and simmer till fork<br />

tender. Drain and set aside.<br />

Heat the butter in a large<br />

saucepan and gently cook the<br />

carrots, leek, and garlic, until<br />

tender. Add the flour, stirring<br />

to form a roux. Add the wine<br />

and a little fish stock and stir to<br />

a thick paste. Gradually add the<br />

rest of the stock, and the bay leaf<br />

and thyme, stirring to ensure no<br />

lumps form.<br />

Add the milk and cream, using<br />

a whisk to form a smooth base.<br />

Add in all the seafood and the<br />

cooked potato and bring to a<br />

gentle simmer then remove from<br />

the heat.<br />

Serve garnished with parsley.<br />

Fish cakes<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

400g Agria potatoes, peeled and<br />

quartered<br />

2 Tbsp olive oil<br />

Finely grated zest and juice of 1<br />

lemon<br />

2 thyme sprigs<br />

½ lemon, sliced<br />

300g fish (I use a combination<br />

of salmon and white)<br />

300g smoked fish<br />

Handful of flat leaf parsley,<br />

chopped<br />

½ cup plain flour<br />

2 medium eggs, lightly beaten<br />

1½ cups of panko crumbs<br />

¼ cup canola oil<br />

Anchovy dressing<br />

2 Tbsp capers<br />

2 small shallots, peeled and<br />

finely chopped<br />

Zest of a lemon<br />

Bunch flat leaf parsley leaves,<br />

chopped<br />

1 small tin of anchovies,<br />

chopped (about 6)<br />

½ cup of good quality extra<br />

virgin olive oil<br />

Directions<br />

Put the potatoes in a pot of<br />

well-salted water to cover and<br />

bring to the boil.<br />

Cook for 10-15 minutes until<br />

tender when pierced with a knife.<br />

Drain well and mash. Mix in the<br />

first measure of olive oil, zest and<br />

juice. Season to taste, cool.<br />

Add thyme, lemon slices and<br />

all the fish to a wide pan of<br />

slowly simmering salted water<br />

and gently poach for a few<br />

minutes until cooked. Transfer<br />

to a plate lined with a paper<br />

towel to cool down.<br />

Flake the fish and add with the<br />

parsley to the mashed potatoes,<br />

gently mixing with your hands.<br />

Taste and adjust seasoning.<br />

Divide mixture into four<br />

rounded patties.<br />

Season the flour with salt and<br />

pepper, coat the patties with the<br />

flour then dip into the egg and<br />

finally into the panko crumbs,<br />

turning to evenly coat all over.<br />

Chill in fridge to set<br />

(minimum ½ hour).<br />

To cook, heat the oven to<br />

180 deg C. Heat a thin layer of<br />

canola oil in a wide ovenproof<br />

frying pan. Fry the fish cakes<br />

for 2-3 minutes until golden<br />

brown, then flip over and fry<br />

for a further 1-2 minutes. Finish<br />

cooking in oven for 5-7 minutes.<br />

To make the dressing, gently<br />

warm the ingredients in a small<br />

pot for 3-4 minutes. Spoon a<br />

dollop on each warm plate and<br />

place the fish on top, with a<br />

further spoonful on top. Serve<br />

with steamed greens. – ODT<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Ground moisture barrier<br />

under low sub-floor<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm<br />

and healthy for their families throughout<br />

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects<br />

many of our older properties which suffer<br />

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.<br />

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many<br />

people have relocated to homes that suffer<br />

from rising damp which can be associated<br />

with health problems. Independent tests have<br />

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise<br />

from the ground and enter a house every day,<br />

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and<br />

musty smells. Moulds can produce various<br />

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and<br />

very young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems caused by rising<br />

damp and are there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,<br />

flowable foam concrete under your timber<br />

floored home.<br />

While insulation is important, it has been<br />

recognised that it is dampness that is the real<br />

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes<br />

Standards introduced by the government<br />

effective from the 1st <strong>July</strong> <strong>20</strong>19 now has<br />

a requirement to install ground moisture<br />

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight<br />

moisture in the home.<br />

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a<br />

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under<br />

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed<br />

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over<br />

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation<br />

on the underside of a timber floor can occur<br />

where the floor is suspended over damp<br />

ground and the inside air temperature falls<br />

close to the crawl space air temperature.<br />

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture<br />

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding<br />

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can<br />

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.<br />

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most<br />

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier<br />

under the suspended wooden floor of your<br />

home, even when there is no crawl space.<br />

Keep cosy with<br />

RD Petroleum<br />

this winter<br />

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight<br />

for farm and rural residents around the<br />

Canterbury region, however now days urban<br />

residents also enjoy the same excellent<br />

customer service for which RDP is known for<br />

in rural communities, through their home<br />

heating diesel.<br />

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery<br />

service to the lower South Island’s main urban<br />

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin<br />

and Invercargill a number of years ago.<br />

Customer demand has continued to increase<br />

year upon year, and RDP has responded<br />

with specialised improvements to its delivery<br />

equipment.<br />

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating<br />

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from<br />

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This<br />

means they have the latest communication<br />

and GPS tracking technology on board, so<br />

the operations team always know where they<br />

are and how far away they are from their next<br />

delivery stop.<br />

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come<br />

equipped with a specially-designed hose,<br />

through which the diesel is pumped from<br />

the truck into house tanks. The length of<br />

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks<br />

without having to enter the property, avoiding<br />

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to<br />

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered<br />

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer<br />

you’re offered discounted pricing and can<br />

become eligible for value-added benefits.<br />

For all enquiries please phone<br />

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at<br />

than its underwhelming<br />

predecessor.<br />

It borrows some bits from the<br />

old model, including the same<br />

3.5-litre petrol V6, but has had<br />

an emphatic styling overhaul to<br />

make a telling and compelling<br />

difference. This Pathfinder demands<br />

attention with its strong,<br />

muscular appearance, shorter<br />

front overhang, slimmer pillars,<br />

C-shaped LED headlights and a<br />

“floating” roofline.<br />

Seven drive and terrain<br />

settings are available for the<br />

all-wheel drive system. A new<br />

innovation is Pro-PILOT featuring<br />

semi-autonomous driving.<br />

Safety is nailed in one, thanks to<br />

nine airbags, including curtain<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

bags spanning all three rows of<br />

seats. Towing of braked trailers<br />

up to 2700kg is made safer and<br />

easier with a two-mode on-board<br />

trailer-stability programme.<br />

Sold here initially in <strong>20</strong>22 as a<br />

three model line-up, Nissan NZ<br />

didn’t wait long to hit the delete<br />

button on the entry-level ST.<br />

Instead, they’ve opted for a two<br />

high-spec line-up starting with<br />

the $83,490 Ti. The lavishly appointed<br />

Ti-L I road tested is the<br />

‘cherry on the cake’ model.<br />

The engine’s maximum power<br />

of <strong>20</strong>2kw is about the same as<br />

the old model, while the 340Nm<br />

of torque is under done in an<br />

SUV of this size and weight.<br />

Consequently, low-speed pulling<br />

power suffers and isn’t as<br />

strong as it needs to be to cope<br />

with long punishing hill climbs<br />

under load. This leads to the<br />

transmission hunting between<br />

gears in search of more power to<br />

keep the vehicle moving along<br />

at a respectable clip. At times, all<br />

nine gears the transmission has<br />

at its disposal need to be called<br />

into play to do their bit.<br />

A large and welcoming cabin<br />

looks and feels the real large<br />

upmarket SUV deal. Comfort is<br />

assured regardless of what the<br />

weather is doing. Making this<br />

happen is the excellent tri-zone<br />

climate controlled air-conditioning<br />

with air vents all the way<br />

through to the back row of seats.<br />

Rear sunshades do a good job of<br />

reducing heat and glare.<br />

A huge 10.8-inch Head Up<br />

Display is standard, projecting<br />

key information, including turnby-turn<br />

satellite navigation, to<br />

keep the driver focused on the<br />

road ahead. An upgraded infotainment<br />

system has integrated<br />

wireless Apple CarPlay and<br />

wired Android Auto, four USB<br />

charging points plus two 12-volt<br />

outlets.<br />

There’s a comprehensive safety<br />

package from Nissan’s Intelligent<br />

Mobility Suite. Included is a<br />

rearview camera, an Advanced<br />

Drive-Assist instrument cluster<br />

and LED dusk-sensing headlights<br />

with high-beam assist.<br />

A well-sorted double wishbone<br />

front suspension and an<br />

independent multi-link rear end<br />

with coils, brings a fair degree<br />

of handling composure to the<br />

road holding table. However, the<br />

Pathfinder’s sheer size and <strong>20</strong>00-<br />

plus kg kerb weight compromises<br />

the vehicle’s handling at its outer<br />

extremities. This comes to the<br />

fore when driving on tight,<br />

twisty terrain, which we have an<br />

abundance of on our roads. The<br />

vehicle’s handling limitations<br />

aren’t helped by light steering.<br />

To my mind, the latest Ford<br />

Everest is the road-holding<br />

benchmark model for our large<br />

SUV market. Because it’s based<br />

on the latest Ford Ranger ute,<br />

it has genuine go anywhere<br />

off-road capabilities that are<br />

superior to the Pathfinder. It’s<br />

okay on ski-field access roads<br />

and that type of driving, but<br />

little more with its average<br />

ground clearance.<br />
