Help Anya land at<br />

the world champs<br />

HIGH FLYER: Anya Crocker competing in a synchronised trampoline competition.<br />

• By Sasha Watson<br />

ANYA CROCKER needs your<br />

help.<br />

The 13-year-old is heading to<br />

Birmingham, England, to compete<br />

at the trampoline world<br />

age group championships from<br />

November 16-19.<br />

But she needs $10,000 to get<br />

there.<br />

A Givealittle page has been<br />

set up to help Anya, who lives<br />

in Governors <strong>Bay</strong>, get to Birmingham.<br />

Her father Nathan<br />

Crocker will travel with her.<br />

Said her mother Anita Leney:<br />

“Anya received the official call,<br />

naming her spot in the New<br />

Zealand team, about a month<br />

ago.” •Turn to page 4<br />

Potential<br />

sale<br />

of port<br />

company<br />

looms<br />

SELLING OFF part or all of<br />

Lyttelton Port Company appears<br />

to be firmly in the sights of<br />

right-leaning city councillors and<br />

Mayor Phil Mauger.<br />

Mauger told Stuff this week he<br />

believes the city council will have<br />

to sell of some of<br />

its assets to off set<br />

rates increases in<br />

the future.<br />

Ratepayer-owned<br />

companies like<br />

the port and<br />

Christchurch<br />

Airport return<br />

dividends to the city<br />

council.<br />

Selling or partly<br />

selling the assets has been an<br />

Phil<br />

Mauger<br />

ongoing issue over the past few<br />

decades and a philosophical arm<br />

wrestle between the right and leftleaning<br />

factions around the city<br />

council table. Mauger’s comments<br />

come as the city council moves<br />

closer to considering asset sales<br />

later this year. It is also a U-turn<br />

for Mauger who during last year’s<br />

election campaign said he would<br />

not sell assets.<br />

Calculated bid to get pupils on track<br />

• By Becky Bailey<br />

MT PLEASANT School is<br />

taking action to equip pupils<br />

with the knowledge and skills to<br />

excel in mathematics.<br />

From next year, schools will be<br />

required to refresh the current<br />

New Zealand curriculum<br />

meaning there will be changes<br />

to the way maths is taught and<br />

delivered to students.<br />

Said principal Donna Ellery:<br />

“To ensure a seamless transition<br />

to this new way of teaching, Mt<br />

Pleasant School has engaged<br />

Learner First, a professional<br />

development organisation who<br />

work alongside the Ministry of<br />

Education to prepare teachers<br />

for the upcoming curriculum<br />

changes.”<br />

Ellery is concerned at<br />

the decline of children’s<br />

achievements in mathematics<br />

showing that more than half of<br />

year 8 pupils are currently failing<br />

the subject.<br />

“We need to equip our<br />

teachers with the knowledge<br />

and resources needed to help<br />

improve these figures. This<br />

worrying statistic has seen New<br />

Zealand students slip further<br />

behind other OECD countries<br />

that we would normally compare<br />

ourselves to.<br />

“The reasons for this decline<br />

are complex but it is obvious<br />

MATHS: Mt Pleasant School teacher Andrea Thelning works<br />

with pupils Maddie Coombes and Piper Gordon.<br />

that something needs to change.<br />

Giving our teachers access to<br />

extra professional development<br />

is just one way we can help our<br />

students thrive in maths.”<br />

As the extra professional<br />

development is not funded by the<br />

Ministry of Education the school<br />

is currently unable to finance<br />

the cost alone, so has reached<br />

out to school PTA to assist with<br />

fundraising efforts. The school<br />

board and PTA have chosen to<br />

donate all proceeds from the<br />

Mt Pleasant Art Exhibition<br />

to the school’s mathematics<br />

development programme to<br />

equip teachers and pupils with<br />

the resources needed to succeed<br />

in a subject.<br />

• Bailey is a Mt Pleasant<br />

School parent and PTA<br />

member<br />

Mt Pleasant community<br />

centre will be displaying<br />

over 500 artworks from 40<br />

different artists, including<br />

work from feature artist,<br />

Lyttelton-based<br />

Pupils will also have their<br />

work on display in the<br />

upstairs studios of the<br />

Jumping<br />

onto the<br />

global stage<br />

•From page 1<br />

“She has worked very hard since<br />

then, and we are very proud.<br />

“She is very driven and super<br />

excited.<br />

“Her focus has kicked into overdrive,<br />

and she is grateful for the<br />

opportunity to compete as well.<br />

Anything donated to help get her<br />

there would be amazing.”<br />

The Cashmere High School<br />

student will compete in the solo<br />

trampoline event.<br />

It comes after she won silver and<br />

bronze at the Australian nationals<br />

earlier this year.<br />

She has won several New<br />

Zealand titles, and is part of the<br />

Olympia Gymnastics Sports Club<br />

in Wigram.<br />

Leney said the family is looking<br />

for ways to fundraise for the trip.<br />

“We are looking for sponsors,<br />

for a ‘we’ve got your back’ t-shirt,<br />

which will be her new favourite<br />

shirt for summer, as a way of<br />

thanking all the kind people who<br />

Have a say on port company sale<br />

•From page 1<br />

It is also another flip-flop from<br />

Mauger who during his election<br />

campaign promised a rates rise of<br />

about 4 per cent this year. The city<br />

council approved a 6.4 per cent rise<br />

in June.<br />

The city council owns 100 per<br />

cent of the port company, City Care,<br />

fibre broadband provider Enable<br />

and Eco-Central, 75 per cent of the<br />

airport, and 89 per cent of Orion<br />

through its company Christchurch<br />

City Holdings Ltd.<br />

Mauger told Stuff because the city<br />

council had owned the assets for<br />

years it didn’t mean it was a good<br />

investment.<br />

Over the past 30 years, the assets<br />

have returned almost $2 billion to<br />

ratepayers. But a report last year<br />

by investment bank and corporate<br />

advisory business, Northington<br />

Partners, found it could have been<br />

more.<br />

City councillors voted 10 to seven<br />

late last year to develop detailed<br />

business cases looking at the costs<br />

and benefits of partially selling off<br />

its assets.<br />

The Maritime Union is opposed<br />

to selling the port company.<br />

National secretary Craig Harrison<br />

told Stuff ports are important<br />

drivers of local economies because<br />

they facilitate trade.<br />

“We need to see them as strategic<br />

assets, not cash cows,” he said.<br />

He urged residents to “be wary”<br />

of privatising local assets.<br />

Sensory swim sessions popular<br />

IN A LOUD and busy world, a<br />

calm, quiet space can be found<br />

at Pioneer Recreation and Sport<br />

Centre.<br />

Every Saturday, the centre<br />

hosts a two-hour sensory<br />

swimming session at the learn to<br />

swim pool within the facility.<br />

The pool is closed off from<br />

the busier main pool, there is<br />

no music, and the lights are<br />

dimmed. It’s a smaller space,<br />

with a maximum of 25 people<br />

allowed. Sensory toys and<br />

equipment are also available for<br />

the swimmers.<br />

The resulting environment is<br />

a welcoming oasis for customers<br />

who find swimming pools too<br />

noisy or congested.<br />

City council manager<br />

recreation and sports services,<br />

David Bailey, said the idea for<br />

sensory sessions was first trialled<br />

when staff heard the sessions<br />

were proving successful in other<br />

cities.<br />

The sessions have slowly built<br />

in popularity.<br />

“We knew that some people<br />

were not swimming because<br />

they found pools too noisy,<br />

busy or unpredictable. This is a<br />

way to make leisure swimming<br />

accessible to more customers<br />

who just need a quieter, calmer<br />

space,” he said.<br />

“Everybody benefits from<br />

having their sensory needs met,<br />

whether they have disabilities<br />

or not. The pool is a space for<br />

everyone – adults and children.”<br />

Swimmers also have their own<br />

dedicated change rooms at the<br />

end of the session.<br />

The pool is life-guarded<br />

and the hāpai card can be<br />

used. Caregivers supporting a<br />

swimmer do not need to book a<br />

spot. Sensory swimming sessions<br />

need to bebookedin advance.<br />

Standardpool entry fees and<br />

normal rules apply.<br />

The Pioneer Recreation and<br />

Sport Centre is also the home<br />

ofThe Southern Centre.<br />

Adult entry is $6.70<br />

for the two-hour<br />

session. Bookings are<br />

essential. Caregivers<br />

supporting a<br />

swimmer do not<br />

need to book a spot<br />

and swim for free.<br />

Caregivers are asked<br />

to attend with the<br />

participants.<br />

The Southern Centre is a<br />

multi-sensory environment,<br />

which helps reduce stress levels,<br />

develop social skills, while<br />

providing a stimulating or<br />

relaxing environment for the<br />

guests.<br />

It is for everyone, but<br />

individuals who most benefit are<br />

adults and children who have<br />

learning differences, disabilities<br />

or anxiety or stress-related<br />

problems. It is operated under<br />

a partnership between the city<br />

council and Canterbury Multi-<br />

The Quiet Hero - The extraordinary life and death of a Kiwi<br />

aid worker in Ukraine by Philip Matthews<br />

Andrew Bagshaw was many things - a genius-level geneticist, keen cricketer<br />

and sailor, private pilot, much-loved son, brother and uncle, as well as a hugely<br />

brave and principled idealist who risked everything to travel from Christchurch to<br />

Ukraine to work as a volunteer aid worker. After seeing the distressing coverage<br />

of the Russian invasion of Ukraine unfold on television, Andrew booked a ticket<br />

to Poland in April 2022 and by July he was in eastern Ukraine, evacuating citizens<br />

from dangerous frontline cities like Bakhmut and Soledar. He moved hundreds of<br />

people to safety while gaining the respect of an international team of volunteers..<br />

On 6 Jan<strong>2023</strong>, Andrew and fellow aid worker Chris Parry were on a mission in<br />

Soledar, trying to rescue an elderly woman, when they were caught in a Russian<br />

attack. Reported missing the following day, their deaths were confirmed two<br />

weeks later. In The Quiet Hero reveals for the first time Andrew’s remarkable work<br />

in Ukraine, and celebrates the modest, compassionate and, above all, determined<br />

man that he was.<br />

INSTORE!<br />

On the Record<br />

by Steven Joyce<br />

Before Steven Joyce entered politics, he had a hugely successful 17-year career<br />

building and running the radio network RadioWorks. He learnt to cut deals,<br />

compete ferociously, and manage and soothe the egos of the on-air talent. They<br />

were all skills he would put to great use when he joined the National Party. After<br />

entering Parliament in 2008 when John Key took back power from Labour, Joyce<br />

was quickly promoted, and was a senior minister for almost all of his 10 years in<br />

Parliament. Alongside his portfolios — including transport, infrastructure, finance<br />

and MBIE — Joyce occupied a pivotal role as National’s campaign strategist,<br />

leading the party’s winning campaigns in 2011 and 2014. Such was Joyce’s<br />

effectiveness, he gained the nickname of ‘Minister for Everything’. For the Record<br />

reveals what it takes to win and keep office. This is an essential read for anyone<br />

interested in the business of governing: packed full of insider knowledge, honest<br />

appraisals of the main players, entertaining anecdotes, and the reality of how<br />

politics works.<br />

Adventures with Emilie - Taking on Te Araroa Trail in<br />

138 life-changing days by Victoria Bruce<br />

A mother and daughter’s wild journey to rediscover the wonder and restorative<br />

power of nature. “I’m here because I want to test the very limits of my own<br />

resilience and reassure myself that no matter what’s happened to me, I’m not ready<br />

to lie down and die.” In 2021, Victoria Bruce quit her corporate job, packed up her<br />

life and embarked on Te Araroa trail with her seven-year-old daughter, Emilie. On<br />

the 3000-kilometre journey that covers the length of Aotearoa, the duo faced<br />

Covid lockdowns, the harsh elements of NZ’s backcountry and even a near-death<br />

experience. A keen tramper, Victoria’s drive to complete the walk was to take time<br />

out, create lasting memories with Emilie and reconnect with nature. But it was also<br />

a way for her to face her past, and the events that led to her post-traumatic stress<br />

disorder. Victoria interweaves her experiences on the trail with reflections on her<br />

painful childhood, her time in state care, recovering from addiction and assault,<br />

becoming a mother, and escaping everyday life to finally confront her demons.<br />

Life on Fodder Farm - A Journey to Self Sufficiency<br />

by Rebecca Stewart<br />

To get to the Stewart family’s remote homestead, you head south from the heart<br />

of the King Country and take a 40-minute drive into the middle of nowhere. Life<br />

on Fodder Farm is their journey through a year living with the land. Each season<br />

brings changes to their lives, a fresh focus of what needs to be done on their small<br />

off-grid homestead. The remote rugged landscape connects them to nature and<br />

leads them down the natural farming pathway. But they also find the natural<br />

lifestyle means that food, homecare and body care all become elements they can<br />

produce at home.<br />

Fire brigade ‘hot shots’<br />

In the lead up to its 150th<br />

anniversary celebration<br />

over Labour weekend, the<br />

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade looks back at its<br />

past in a regular column<br />

Silver band’s<br />

free concert<br />

NO DISCUSSION about the<br />

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade’s<br />

proud 150 year history would be<br />

complete without mentioning<br />

these guys, and that impressive<br />

range of silverware. George<br />

Findlay, Bill Newitt, Ray Arthurs,<br />

Bill Vickers, Robert Norris,<br />

Tommy Smith, Coach Robert<br />

Kerr from Sumner, Neville<br />

Adams and John May were, in<br />

Fire Brigade competition terms,<br />

the hot shots of the 1970s and<br />

early 80s.<br />

Inter-brigade competitions<br />

have been around as long as<br />

fire brigades themselves. Weeks<br />

and weeks of training and<br />

competitions all over the country<br />

were, and still are, the ideal way<br />

to hone the fire-fighting skills.<br />

Hundreds of spectators used to<br />

watch and results were published<br />

in the local newspapers. In<br />

Lyttelton’s case they often<br />

appeared under the “Shipping<br />

News”, right next to the arrival<br />

time of the inter-island ferry. Go<br />

figure.<br />

An influx of keen younger<br />

members to the Lyttelton<br />

brigade has seen a renewed<br />

SILVERWARE: Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade has a long<br />

history of winning inter-brigade competitions.<br />

interest in competitions and a<br />

trophy cabinet that is filling up<br />

nicely. The 150th celebrations<br />

this Labour weekend will bring<br />

together many past and current<br />

competition team members.<br />

There will be a proud display<br />

of photographs highlighting<br />

competition winners.<br />

THE SUMNER Silver Band<br />

is holding a free concert at the<br />

Sumner Town Hall Matuku<br />

Takotako on Sunday from<br />

3-5pm. It will form part of<br />

the band’s preparation for the<br />

Provincial Brass Band Contest on<br />

<strong>September</strong> 23.<br />

The band has been a popular<br />

and integral part of Sumner<br />

for well over 100 years, playing<br />

throughout the year at functions<br />

like Anzac Day and Sumner’s<br />

Christmas carols, and also at<br />

venues such as the rest home,<br />

local farmers’ markets and other<br />

community gatherings.<br />

The local character of the<br />

band is emphasised by its new<br />

conductor, Victoria van Uden<br />

whose husband Paul played<br />

the trombone in the band as<br />

a schoolboy. Their son Harry<br />

in turn is also learning the<br />

trombone through the band.<br />

Since becoming the band’s<br />

conductor and musical director<br />

in <strong>September</strong> last, under van<br />

Uden’s very capable guidance<br />

and inspiring baton, the band<br />

is enjoying a resurgence of<br />

interest. Membership has grown<br />

with a number of younger and<br />

older people joining, though the<br />

band is still keen to welcome<br />

new members and can supply<br />

instruments if needed.<br />

Refreshments will be provided<br />

for a donation to offset hall hire<br />

during the <strong>September</strong> 23 concert<br />

at Te Aratai College, Aldwins Rd.<br />

First band at about 9.30am.<br />

Who do we trust in a pandemic?<br />

A FATHER-DAUGHTER team<br />

from Canterbury University<br />

studied data from eight<br />

countries to rank trust in health<br />

authorities, media, experts, and<br />

politicians.<br />

Political science honours<br />

student Alexa Schluter is the<br />

lead author of the paper, ‘In the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic, who did we<br />

trust? An eight-country crosssectional<br />

study’.<br />

Her father, Professor Philip<br />

Schluter, head of UC’s school of<br />

health sciences, supervised her<br />

research.<br />

The pair worked with<br />

clinicians and public health<br />

researchers in Canada to<br />

study data from 9000 survey<br />

participants from Canada, USA,<br />

England, Switzerland, Belgium,<br />

Philippines, New Zealand, and<br />

Hong Kong. The surveys were<br />

carried out in late 2020.<br />

In all countries surveyed,<br />

public trust in health authorities<br />

was highest. Conversely, public<br />

trust in politicians ranked lowest<br />

across the board.<br />

However, in New Zealand,<br />

trust in politicians was<br />

significantly higher than in the<br />

other countries studied. The<br />

researchers linked this to data<br />

from the Global Corruption<br />

Perception Index that records<br />

how transparent populations<br />

believe their governments to be.<br />

TRUST: Ashley Bloomfield and Jacinda Ardern had a high level of trust during the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

New Zealand’s high ranking<br />

on this index may explain<br />

our greater<br />

levels of trust<br />

in information<br />

provided by<br />

politicians.<br />

Professor<br />

Philip<br />

Schluter<br />

Schluter also<br />

points to the<br />

consistent<br />

messaging delivered by<br />

government and public health<br />

officials in New Zealand.<br />

“Here we saw the daily<br />

briefing with the Prime Minister<br />

and the Director General<br />

of Health promoting the<br />

same stance. By comparison,<br />

information coming from US<br />

political leadership sometimes<br />

contradicted advice of health<br />

authorities,” he said.<br />

Alexa Schluter<br />

was also interested<br />

to see if political<br />

orientation<br />

affected<br />

participants’ trust<br />

Alexa<br />

in government<br />

Schluter<br />

information.<br />

“We found higher levels of<br />

trust in government policy<br />

expressed by those who<br />

identified as right leaning or<br />

conservative voters.<br />

“That may reflect the fact that,<br />

at the time of the pandemic, the<br />

majority of countries surveyed<br />

had conservative governments in<br />

power,” she said.<br />

The researchers believe their<br />

paper has added relevance<br />

within the context of the<br />

‘infodemic’ identified by the<br />

World Health Organisation as<br />

a central challenge during the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

A combination of<br />

‘information’ and ‘epidemic’, the<br />

term describes the rapid<br />

spread of information, both<br />

accurate and inaccurate,<br />

enabled by the internet and<br />

social media.<br />

“In this environment, public<br />

trust becomes an important<br />

determinant in population<br />

health outcomes, and that’s<br />

quite a new idea,” said Professor<br />

Schluter.<br />

“These large-scale health<br />

challenges will continue to<br />

happen in future, so we really<br />

need to understand what works<br />

to foster public trust in health<br />

interventions.”<br />

The paper will be published<br />

in the prestigious international<br />

Journal of Global Health.<br />

3000km e-bike<br />

Get more out of your ride<br />

Connect with fellow<br />

riders and talk bikes<br />

over a free coffee<br />

Casual & Country and Ten27<br />

owner John Turnbull bought<br />

his first e-bike last year and<br />

has now completed the<br />

Tour Aotearoa; a route which<br />

stretches 3000km from<br />

Cape Reinga to Bluff. Katie<br />

McDonald from Cycleways,<br />

where he bought his e-bike,<br />

catches up with him<br />

Firstly, how did you get into riding<br />

and what made you decide to do Tour<br />

Aotearoa?<br />

I’ve spent all of my life working. I’ve<br />

never played golf or done anything like<br />

that, it’s always just been work. But my son<br />

has taken over a bit more now which has<br />

given me a bit more time. My friends who<br />

come into the cafe said “you’ve got to go<br />

into Cycleways and get yourself an e-bike”<br />

and so I did. And I enjoyed it so much<br />

that I wanted to go around more than just<br />

the block on it. For some reason I got this<br />

TA (Tour Aotearoa) thing in my mind. I<br />

started telling people I was going to do it<br />

and I told so many people that I couldn’t<br />

chicken out of it!<br />

Did you do any training or smaller<br />

rides in the lead up to it?<br />

No! Well, I’d done a couple of thousand<br />

kilometres in the few months beforehand.<br />

But with an e-bike you don’t really have<br />

to train as much as you would on a<br />

conventional bike.<br />

What bike did you use?<br />

I’ve got the Specialized Turbo Levo<br />

Comp Alloy, and it’s awesome. There were<br />

a lot of times where I felt it was the perfect<br />

bike for the job. A lot of people said “Oh,<br />

he’s on an e-bike” and then someone else<br />

would say “yeah, he’s the sensible one!”.<br />

I’m 74 and I’d only been biking for a few<br />

months when I decided to do this, and I’ve<br />

done 5,500km on my bike in 9 months.<br />

I’ve gone from nothing, to that.<br />

Can you tell me a bit more about the<br />

experience?<br />

People say “oh, there must have been<br />

times when you weren’t enjoying it”, but<br />

I loved every minute of it. I started at<br />

Cape Reinga and I was going through the<br />

North Island during all the floods and<br />

the Cyclone. It rained the whole time but<br />

it wasn’t cold, and I stayed dry thanks<br />

to my jacket and over-trousers. It was a<br />

challenge, but I never regretted it once.<br />

Did you do it by yourself? And how<br />

long did it take?<br />

Yes, I did it by myself but my wife<br />

followed me in the car. I liked doing it<br />

by myself because it meant I could go at<br />

my own pace. It took 33 days of riding.<br />

I could have done it in a lot less, but in<br />

saying that, I had plenty of breaks as well. I<br />

would always be on the road by 7.30am or<br />

8am, and usually I’d be finished by 1pm or<br />

2pm. One day it was 6pm; it was 9 hours<br />

of riding and I can’t remember anything<br />

about it because I was so focussed on what<br />

I was doing. I had no idea how long it<br />

would take; I didn’t know if it would take<br />

ride: ‘I loved every minute of it’<br />

30 days or 60 days.<br />

What were some highlights of the<br />

experience?<br />

Well, the nicest area was going<br />

through Maruia Saddle, between<br />

Murchison and Reefton. It was a<br />

beautiful ride. I also met so many<br />

people who were all so passionate about<br />

riding; they’re interested in you and<br />

they’re interesting. What was good for<br />

me is that it’s been hard for me to break<br />

away from work, but with cycling, it’s<br />

taken over my train of thought and<br />

broken that connection with work and<br />

allowed me to do something else. I got<br />

right into the groove of it, I could hear<br />

my wife talking to my son on the phone<br />

about work and I didn’t want to know<br />

about it; I didn’t want to get distracted<br />

and I was able to focus solely on the<br />

ride, which you have to be able to do.<br />

What are you planning on doing<br />

next?<br />

I’m going to do it again! I’d like to do<br />

it again and I’ve been thinking about<br />

doing it on a conventional bike, which<br />

will be a lot harder. With an e-bike I<br />

didn’t really have to train for it, I could<br />

just start.<br />

What would you say to anyone who’s<br />

thinking about doing TA?<br />

Just do it. In hindsight I’m surprised I<br />

was able to do something like this, and<br />

at my age. Don’t be put off by age. And<br />

just focus on one day at a time.<br />

The best 10km road<br />

race in New Zealand<br />

At the start line in Govenors <strong>Bay</strong><br />

We have heard this many times from<br />

experienced competitors who love the event.<br />

The starting venue at the Governors <strong>Bay</strong> school<br />

has a spectacular outlook of the harbour<br />

and is coupled with lovely<br />

views throughout the race. The<br />

interesting undulating nature of the<br />

course, and the fact that despite<br />

this it’s reasonably fast, all add to<br />

the events appeal.<br />

The chasing start feature of<br />

the race also contributes to its<br />

character. This sees the slower<br />

runners starting first at 9.30am<br />

followed by increasingly faster<br />

runners starting in groups at<br />

approximately 1-minute intervals.<br />

The slower runners typically take<br />

about 90 mins to complete the<br />

course and the fastest about 30<br />

mins. These starting times are<br />

allocated to competitors based<br />

on their estimated 5km times<br />

advertorial<br />

which are submitted with their entry. This makes<br />

for an exciting mass finish with runners of all<br />

abilities catching up to each other within sight<br />

of the finishing line. For the last few years, we<br />

have been fortunate to finish in the Lyttelton<br />

Recreation ground close to the yacht storage<br />

area and with the improvements made after SAIL<br />

GP, it is a very good finishing venue.<br />

Health and safety have become increasingly<br />

important considerations so Traffic Management<br />

Plans are submitted for Council approval. We<br />

now offer the option of bus transport from<br />

Lyttelton to Governors <strong>Bay</strong> before the event to<br />

minimize additional vehicles on the road. We are<br />

also very grateful to the local community for their<br />

cooperation in being able to continue to offer this<br />

special event.<br />

So to enter, especially if you’re<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

Volcanic bay to defence fort<br />

TĀPOA MAGAZINE <strong>Bay</strong><br />

is the smallest of the three<br />

bays between Rāpaki <strong>Bay</strong> and<br />

Lyttelton Port, the other two<br />

being Motu-kauati-iti Corsair<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> and Motu-kauati-rahi Cass<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

Enclosed by natural volcanic<br />

features, it has long been known<br />

to Māori as Tāpoa and was on<br />

the well-worn pathway between<br />

the Ngāti Wheke settlement at<br />

Rāpaki and the resource-rich<br />

area around the former Ngāti<br />

Mamoe village of Ōhinehou,<br />

on which land the Canterbury<br />

Association’s town of Lyttelton<br />

was founded in 1850.<br />

After the New Zealand colonial<br />

government’s 1849 acquisition of<br />

much of Ngāi Tahu land around<br />

Whakaraupō (then known as<br />

Port Cooper), this quiet little bay<br />

was purchased as part of a parcel<br />

of 100 acres, designated Rural<br />

Section 375, by one SH Andrews<br />

in 1854. Over the years, it underwent<br />

numerous subdivisions and<br />

transactions. Moreover, the bay<br />

was known by multiple European<br />

names over time, such as<br />

Cromptons and Brownings bays,<br />

but it was primarily known as<br />

Bakers <strong>Bay</strong> until renamed Magazine<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> in the late 19th-century,<br />

following the establishment of a<br />

gunpowder storage facility.<br />

In its earliest colonial years,<br />

Bakers <strong>Bay</strong> served a functional<br />

role for the landing of cattle,<br />

horses, and other goods, with the<br />

SS ‘Star of the South’ unloading<br />

59 head of cattle from Whanganui<br />

in 1863.<br />

The bay’s gently sloping beach<br />

and steep cliff walls apparently<br />

made it more useful than the<br />

port’s jetties for offloading and<br />

holding livestock. In 1874, early<br />

Lyttelton pioneer John Grubb<br />

built his shipyard there and operated<br />

the business through to at<br />

least the late 1890s. Also in 1874,<br />

a specialised stone structure for<br />

storing explosives, colloquially<br />

known as a magazine, was built<br />

to house the explosives used in<br />

the construction of the Lyttelton<br />

(Moorhouse) rail tunnel. So solidly<br />

was it built, it survived the<br />

devastating <strong>September</strong> 4, 2010,<br />

and February 22, 2011, earthquakes<br />

and still stands on its<br />

seawall by the beach to this day.<br />

From 1885 this magazine also<br />

served a dual function as a military<br />

storage facility when Tāpoa<br />

Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> was requisitioned<br />

as a defence reserve. Due to a<br />

perceived expansionist threat<br />

from Imperial Russia in the early<br />

1880s, the land around Magazine<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> had been integrated into a<br />

broader British Imperial defence<br />

strategy for Whakaraupō Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>. This culminated<br />

in the construction of the Fort<br />

Erskine 65-pounder gun emplacement<br />

overlooking Lyttelton<br />

Port’s inner harbour, complementing<br />

the emplacements at<br />

Battery Point and Fort Jervois<br />

on Rīpapa Island, all manned<br />

by the Lyttelton Naval Artillery<br />

Volunteers. Later updated with a<br />

7-inch muzzle loading rifled cannon,<br />

the Erskine Point Battery<br />

was decommissioned by 1905.<br />

In the 1930s the old Fort Erskine<br />

emplacement was stripped<br />

for salvage with the 7-inch<br />

cannon gifted to the Sumner Sea<br />

Cadets base at TS Cornwell.<br />

In 1935 the steamship ‘John<br />

Anderson’ towed one of Lyttelton<br />

Port’s many coal hulks, the ‘Lota’,<br />

formerly a majestic three-masted<br />

wooden barque, to its final<br />

resting place on the beach at<br />

Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> where it was to be<br />

broken up for salvage. However,<br />

the wreck remained on the beach<br />

until at least 1940 accompanied<br />

by growing complaints about its<br />

safety from local beachgoers and<br />

swimmers.<br />

At the onset of World War II<br />

in 1939, Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> was again<br />

fortified with a 40 mm Bofors<br />

anti-aircraft gun just above the<br />

former Fort Erskine gun mount.<br />

Known as the ‘Oil Wharf Gun’<br />

it also overlooked the inner<br />

harbour and was Whakaraupō<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>’s only defence<br />

until the Godley Head guns were<br />

brought into service later that<br />

year.<br />

Post-war, the bay reverted to<br />

being a public recreation area,<br />

managed by Lyttelton and then<br />

Christchurch councils. However,<br />

it was not until 1984 that<br />

ownership was transferred from<br />

the Ministry of Defence to the<br />

council, formally ending the 99-<br />

year history of Tāpoa Magazine<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> as a defence reserve.<br />

From 1982 on, the Magazine<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> marina provided boat<br />

moorings for pleasure craft<br />

outside the crowded inner<br />

harbour. However, a series of<br />

destructive storms, most notably<br />

the severe storm of October<br />

2000, and the 2018 construction<br />

of Te Ana Marina, led to the<br />

abandonment of Magazine<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> marina, which is due to be<br />

dismantled this month.<br />

From 1999 to 2002, the<br />

magazine building underwent<br />

significant restoration and was<br />

re-purposed as the Lyttelton<br />

Torpedo Boat Museum. The<br />

museum displays the remains<br />

of the 1885 Thornycroft<br />

torpedo boat that was housed<br />

and launched from a slipway<br />

at Magazine <strong>Bay</strong> during the<br />

1880s ‘Russian Scare’. Run by<br />

volunteers and open on Sunday<br />

afternoons during the summer<br />

months, the museum and its<br />

often quiet beach remain a<br />

popular haunt for locals.<br />

24 <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News Wednesday <strong>September</strong> 6 <strong>2023</strong><br />

Skoda’s Scoutline a stylish addition<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

SKODA HAS created a Scoutline<br />

version of the Kamiq, its smallest<br />

SUV, to help raise the profile of<br />

a model that’s flown under the<br />

radar of buyers since debuting<br />

here three years ago.<br />

With a solid wave of high,<br />

small riding urban SUVs on the<br />

market, it’s hardly surprising this<br />

one has lacked visibility. Not so<br />

now Skoda provides the vehicle<br />

fleet for our police force.<br />

The Scoutline adds more visual<br />

punch to the bland-looking<br />

Kamiq compact urban SUV. It<br />

does this with matte black wheel<br />

arch liners, silver bodywork elements,<br />

large – well, for a vehicle<br />

of this size – 17-inch alloy wheels<br />

and full-LED taillights.<br />

It’s not done there. It also<br />

comes with it own unique front<br />

spoiler with underbody protection<br />

and a rear diffuser, all nicely<br />

co-ordinated in the same silver<br />

finish as the vehicle’s side sills<br />

and roof rails. Tinted side and<br />

rear windows with chrome-plated<br />

window frames add a subtle<br />

but tasteful visual touch.<br />

Firing the opening and fairly<br />

pricey salvo in the two-model<br />

Kamiq catalogue is the $39,990<br />

Scoutline being reviewed here.<br />

Filling the closing chapter is the<br />

flagship $48,990 Monte Carlo<br />

version.<br />

Powering the Scoutline is a 1.0<br />

litre turbo petrol. Exclusive to<br />

the Monte Carlo is a nippy and<br />

eager to please 110kw 1.5 litre<br />

turbo petrol. This engine goes<br />

some way, but not all the way, to<br />

softening its steep asking price.<br />

The spirited 85kw three-cylinder<br />

turbo-charged motor is<br />

a little belter and its distinctive<br />

three-cylinder throb music to the<br />

ears of anyone who appreciate<br />

cool-sounding engines. A favourable<br />

power-to-weight ratio added<br />

a keener edge to the test vehicle’s<br />

acceleration. Even under modest<br />

throttle openings it shows plenty<br />

of enthusiasm. For a smallish<br />

SUV this one’s easy and effortless<br />

to drive at open road speeds and<br />

quick to front with a solid slug of<br />

power to dart past slower moving<br />

traffic.<br />

The only real downside to this<br />

little wonder is some hesitancy<br />

under full throttle. This mainly<br />

played out when powering<br />

off from standing starts. You<br />

understandably expect an instant<br />

accelerative surge, but the motor<br />

can at times take 1-2 seconds,<br />

creating an awkward pause in<br />

proceedings. A smart 7-speed<br />

tiptronic auto utilises two<br />

clutches to consistently deliver<br />

swift decisive gear changes. Oneclutch<br />

changes even numbered<br />

AGILE: For a smallish SUV, the Scoutline is easy and<br />

effortless to drive at open road speeds.<br />

SIMPLY CLEVER: Skoda’s Kamiq Scoutline’s bodywork is subtle and tasteful, with tinted side<br />

and rear windows, silver bodywork elements and 17-inch alloy wheels.<br />

ratios, while the other takes care<br />

of managing the odd number<br />

gears. Regardless of whether it’s<br />

odds or evens, this still adds up<br />

to one efficient transmission.<br />

A cabin that’s as spacious<br />

as you’ll find in the compact<br />

urban SUV market segment<br />

is a real bonus, along with an<br />

elevated driving position offering<br />

excellent all-round visibility. Rear<br />

room legroom is better than a<br />

vehicle of this size has right to<br />

be. A generously proportioned<br />

400-litre boot is extendible that<br />

can almost be trebled in size,<br />

with the 60:40 split rear seat<br />

backrests folded down. Clever<br />

storage compartments abound to<br />

create an extra 26L of in-vehicle<br />

storage.<br />

The Scoutline’s interior<br />

gives the vehicle a genuine<br />

point-of-difference over many of<br />

its rivals with exclusive decorative<br />

trims – with a dark brushed<br />

design – complemented by<br />

chrome-style air vents. The pedal<br />

covers feature a trendy aluminium<br />

design. To show Skoda thinks<br />

of every little detail, the heightadjustable<br />

front seats come with<br />

special Scoutline upholstery<br />

made of breathable ThermoFlux<br />

fabric. The steering wheel, handbrake<br />

and gearshift levers look<br />

smart with their leather finishes.<br />

The white, red and orange<br />

LED ambient lighting puts on a<br />

cool colour show illuminating<br />

the centre console, door storage<br />

compartments, door handles<br />

and foot well. LED reading lights<br />

are standard and you can opt<br />

for a black roof lining. Staying<br />

in touch is well sorted with<br />

built-in SmartLink technology<br />

for connecting devices via Apple<br />

CarPlay, Android Auto or Mirror<br />

Link.<br />

Simply Clever is Skoda’s<br />

marketing is battle cry. In this<br />

vehicle there is plenty of evidence<br />

of that. A good example is an<br />

electric tailgate, including tapto-close<br />

function. The umbrella<br />

compartment (including<br />

umbrella) is in the driver’s<br />

door, there’s an ice scraper<br />

in the fuel filler flap, and an<br />

integrated funnel in the lid of the<br />

windscreen washer tank.<br />

The test vehicle was laden with<br />

safety features. Among the more<br />

innovative are Lane Assist, City<br />

Emergency Brake, Driver Fatigue<br />

Alert, and Cruise Control. Using<br />

a camera, Lane Assist recognises<br />

road markings and helps the<br />

driver to keep to their traffic<br />

lane.<br />

One bit of safety tech that really<br />

impressed is the Driver Fatigue<br />

Alert system. Using a variety<br />

measures it can detect a drop in<br />

the driver’s concentration levels<br />

and advises them to stop and<br />

take a break from driving.<br />

The Kamiq rides confidently,<br />

offering the benefits of an SUV<br />

with the agile driving characteristics<br />

of a compact car. It shares<br />

the same platform as the Skoda<br />

Scala hatch. There are important<br />

points of difference between this<br />

pair. The Scoutline, for instance,<br />

has longer springs and shock<br />

absorbers, stiffer stabiliser for the<br />

front axle and a reinforced rear<br />

axle.<br />

Spring and damper rates are<br />

tuned to soak up even the worst<br />

bumps and potholes. Over undulating<br />

the roads the test vehicle<br />

remained steadfastly calm and<br />

composed, but most importantly<br />

felt in control when called on to<br />

deal with poor roads, weather<br />

and challenging terrain, at the<br />

same time.<br />

It doesn’t land a completely<br />

unblemished scorecard. There’s<br />

scope for steering improvements.<br />

In its current form the steering<br />

lacks the road feel, deft weighting<br />

and all round polish and finesse<br />

of some of its better rivals.<br />
