Chess-inspired blockades<br />

installed at Hornby Hub<br />

ROOK NO FURTHER: Following a ram raid earlier this year pawn-shaped bollards have been installed at the Hub, blocking the entrance from future<br />

attempts. The metal barriers shown above remain present along the side of the road.<br />

GIANT chess-board pawns<br />

now guard the entrance to<br />

the Hub Hornby.<br />

After looking at options<br />

for traditional bollards,<br />

Hub Hornby senior centre<br />

manager Jason Marsden<br />

said while there were a lot,<br />

there were not many that<br />

were “actually capable of<br />

stopping a vehicle at speed.”<br />

Said Marsden: “Most are<br />

more visual markers to<br />

Jason<br />

Marsden<br />

delineate pedestrian and<br />

vehicle spaces.<br />

“Those that are capable<br />

of stopping a vehicle<br />

require major belowground<br />

installation<br />

works which adds a huge<br />

amount of cost and once<br />

installed it really cannot<br />

be relocated.”<br />

Marsden then set about<br />

looking for mass-based<br />

above-ground options.<br />

“Whilst there were some<br />

available in New Zealand,<br />

typically they were on the small<br />

side and I was sceptical about<br />

their ability to stop a vehicle<br />

travelling at speed which could<br />

potentially just push them aside<br />

rendering them useless,” he<br />

said.<br />

Marsden settled on the shape<br />

based on a chess pawn and<br />

went through many iterations<br />

looking at proportions, base<br />

size and height, along with the<br />

size of the top sphere while<br />

considering the centre of mass<br />

and its stability.<br />

“The Hub has a culture of innovation,<br />

so I set about designing<br />

something that would meet<br />

our requirements. The target<br />

weight was 1.5t and would require<br />

lifting points to be able to<br />

be easily placed and relocated,”<br />

said Marsden.<br />

“Further, something that<br />

would be pedestrian and<br />

trolley-friendly without corners<br />

or sharp edges. Once I was<br />

happy with the design, I then<br />

had to locate a company that<br />

could produce them.”<br />

After an extensive search,<br />

the perfect company for the job<br />

was located just down the road<br />

in Rolleston.<br />

Said Marsden: “Cancast had<br />

the skills and knowledge to<br />

produce the mould, design the<br />

required internal reinforcing<br />

to incorporate the single top<br />

lifting bolt and successfully<br />

cast the bollards to a very high<br />

standard of finish.<br />

“We are very happy with the<br />

result and have received a lot of<br />

positive feedback.”

Friendly gym provides a sense of belonging<br />

For those people considering joining<br />

a gym but are not sure if it’s for them,<br />

Wigram Culture Fitness offers an<br />

experience unlike any other.<br />

As owner Heather Peterson explains:<br />

“We have created an environment at<br />

our gym in Wigram that is supportive.<br />

Our members come from a wide<br />

range of ages, from fathers and sons<br />

to mothers and daughters, through to<br />

husbands and wives in their 80s.<br />

“Our gym provides a sense of<br />

belonging and an environment where<br />

everyone feels welcome and part of the<br />

Culture Fitness family.<br />

“We have various workout zones and<br />

gym facilities and, in conjunction with<br />

these, our gym offers Express Fitness<br />

Lanes combined with the Fitness App<br />

Myzone.”<br />

Finding the best gym can be compared<br />

to forging a new relationship. With a bit<br />

of personal reflection, pre-planning,<br />

and some vetting, you will be on the<br />

path to what could be a match made in<br />

heaven (at least when it comes to this<br />

key element of your fitness journey).<br />

Remember, you are investing your<br />

time, money, and energy into a gym,<br />

and you need to be certain that you<br />

have made the best choice for you<br />

and your training goals. You may be<br />

enticed to base your decision on online<br />

reviews or friends’ recommendations,<br />

and while that’s an excellent starting<br />

point, there should be a few more<br />

components to consider. Here at<br />

Wigram Culture fitness we want you to<br />

come in and have a look around, and<br />

make sure we are the best fit for your<br />

Fitness Journey.<br />

“People are sometimes fearful of being<br />

watched and judged at a gym,” Heather<br />

says, “but Wigram Culture Fitness is<br />

not like that. We’re full of locals of all<br />

shapes and sizes, ages and ethnicities.<br />

“Everyone is on a different journey,<br />

so come and share yours with us and<br />

discover a really friendly, supportive<br />

environment.”<br />

Turning light gets thumbs up<br />

• By Sasha Watson<br />

RESIDENTS SAY they feel safer<br />

since a green arrow was added<br />

to the Amyes Rd/Goulding Ave/<br />

Shands Rd intersection lights<br />

two weeks ago.<br />

The Greater Hornby<br />

Residents Association has been<br />

campaigning for the turning<br />

light at the busy intersection<br />

for several years – and says the<br />

feedback so far has been very<br />

positive.<br />

Said former<br />

association<br />

member and now<br />

Hornby Ward<br />

city councillor<br />

Mark Peters: “I’m<br />

hearing from<br />

Mark<br />

Peters<br />

many sources<br />

how fabulous the<br />

green arrows are<br />

working.<br />

“I’ve even heard reports that<br />

the arrows even help clear<br />

approaching, not just already<br />

queued, traffic, thus making<br />

a huge improvement on travel<br />

flow and planning.”<br />

The residents association<br />

started advocating for a green<br />

arrow from Amyes Rd into<br />

Shands Rd about five years ago.<br />

Said Halswell councillor<br />

Andrei Moore: “I remember<br />

when I first started as the<br />

Halswell councillor about four<br />

years ago, the association had<br />

already been pushing for the<br />

green arrow – the project has<br />

been going on for years.<br />

“It’s great that the lights were<br />

all done at the same time, and<br />

the community can now drive<br />

safely through Hornby and<br />

Halswell.” The new right-turn<br />

arrow was described by Peters<br />

as “an absolute win”.<br />

“There are now further<br />

requests for additional arrows<br />

to be added onto Shands Rd<br />

approaching Amyes and Goulding,”<br />

said Peters.<br />

“A huge thanks to all those<br />

involved in getting this done, it’s<br />

a great example of community<br />

and council working together to<br />

get the results the community<br />

desperately need.”<br />

The push for the arrow came<br />

after a traffic light pole at the<br />

intersection had been hit by<br />

several vehicles and the community<br />

had to wait 18-months<br />

for a new pole to be put in.<br />

A previous online discussion<br />

regarding the difficulty of<br />

turning right also saw about<br />

100 people commenting on the<br />

issue.<br />

Between January 1, 2018,<br />

and January 1, 2021, there were<br />

seven crashes at the intersection,<br />

one of which resulted in a minor<br />

injury.<br />

The Matatiki Hornby Centre<br />

space, editing equipment<br />

and other creative resources.<br />

The new centre, which will<br />

see the relocation of Hornby<br />

Library from Goulding Ave to<br />

Kyle Park, is currently under<br />

construction and is due to open<br />

in early 2024.<br />

City council head of libraries<br />

Carolyn Robertson said the<br />

Auahatanga Creative Space is<br />

an exciting addition following<br />

the success of similar resources<br />

at other libraries.<br />

The space will be equipped<br />

with professional-grade video,<br />

software, as well as hardware<br />

including microphones, sound<br />

Classes to learn how to use the<br />

equipment will be available<br />

to book. The Auahatanga<br />

resources.<br />

felt fully informed throughout.<br />

It’s always an interesting line with agents as to whether<br />

they’re just wanting a quick sale vs looking after your best<br />

Christmas parade in four years<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

THE FESTIVE season was<br />

launched in style with the first<br />

ever Christmas Show Parade at<br />

Canterbury Agricultural Park.<br />

Blue skies and warm temperatures<br />

attracted more than<br />

35,000 people to the colourful<br />

spectacle on Sunday.<br />

Parade director Jason Reekers<br />

said it was great to finally<br />

get the event up and running<br />

after a four-year break due to<br />

Covid and rain last year.<br />

“We have all of the old traditional<br />

Santa parade floats that<br />

date back 75 years,” he said.<br />

The last Christmas parade<br />

in the city was held in 2019 on<br />

Madras St.<br />

“We’ve restored them<br />

all, fixed all the motors, and<br />

we’ve got some new ones.<br />

We’ve got 66 entries in the<br />

parade, all singing,<br />

all dancing and they’re looking<br />

beautiful.”<br />

The floats will include a giant<br />

Mother Goose, Disney Princesses<br />

and traditional favourites<br />

like the Mad Hatter.Reekers<br />

said logistics meant rethinking<br />

the event and combining the<br />

parade with a festival.<br />

“We couldn’t get the parade<br />

in the city. Christchurch has<br />

been designed in a way that it<br />

can’t really host a parade. So<br />

we’ve had everything here at<br />

the park, but we couldn’t just<br />

bring people here to the park<br />

just for a parade. So we’ve had<br />

to supply entertainment.”<br />

The event is run by the<br />

Christchurch Children’s Christmas<br />

Parade Trust, which want<br />

to re-establish it as the city’s<br />

premier Christmas celebration.<br />

Start a new<br />

Christmas tradition<br />

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories<br />

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.<br />

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year<br />

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of<br />

your favourite carols and songs – play it<br />

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.<br />

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along<br />

evening – don’t forget to supply the song<br />

sheet so everyone can join in too.<br />

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting<br />

together with family or friends to help<br />

decorate each other’s houses – turn up<br />

the music, drink the wine and go all out<br />

to deck the halls.<br />

3. Make and send homemade Christmas<br />

cards – there’s nothing more exciting<br />

than getting mail, right? Or how about<br />

writing some generic ones and dropping<br />

them into your nearest retirement<br />

home to brighten up an elderly person’s<br />

Christmas.<br />

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or<br />

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t<br />

forget to take a family selfie.<br />

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap<br />

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest<br />

community gift tree – check with your<br />

local library and label with age and<br />

gender.<br />

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour<br />

outdoor games night with drinks and<br />

nibbles leading up to the big day – think<br />

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,<br />

or croquet.<br />

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional<br />

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,<br />

and give a book as a gift on Christmas<br />

Eve each year – don’t forget to write<br />

inside the cover who it’s from and the<br />

date.<br />

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies<br />

to watch a week before Christmas day<br />

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.<br />

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot<br />

chocolate or nibbles and wine.<br />

9. Make and give a handmade ornament<br />

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s<br />

Christmas tree will be covered with<br />

beautiful, handmade memories.<br />

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on<br />

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning<br />

to drink while the presents are being<br />

opened – decorate with whipped cream,<br />

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or<br />

crushed candy canes.<br />

Santa’s Brekkie Pancakes<br />

with fresh berries<br />

This one is not just for the kids – the sweetness of the bananas makes these<br />

pancakes scrumptious and a delicious, healthy breakfast hit for everyone!<br />

You will need:<br />

• 4-5 bananas (soft enough to mash)<br />

• 4 eggs<br />

• ½ cup rice flour<br />

• 2 tbsp whole linseed<br />

• ½ tsp salt<br />

• grated lemon rind<br />

• juice from 1 lemon<br />

• splash of vanilla<br />

• butter to cook the pancakes<br />

Method:<br />

1. Peel and mash the bananas in a bowl.<br />

2. Stir in the eggs, vanilla, linseed, salt<br />

and lemon ingredients.<br />

3. Add flour and mix to a smooth batter.<br />

4. Cook pancakes in frypan on one side<br />

until they bubble on the surface or hold<br />

together enough to be flipped over.<br />

5. If the mixture is thick, flatten the<br />

pancakes out once they’ve been turned<br />

over. Each pancake should be around<br />

1cm thick.<br />

Kid’s version:<br />

Decorate each pancake with red berries<br />

for Santa’s hat, Greek yoghurt or<br />

whipped cream for Santa’s beard and<br />

chocolate buttons or grape halves for<br />

Santa’s eyes.<br />

Adult’s version:<br />

Serve with a mix of fresh strawberries,<br />

blueberries, raspberries, and<br />

boysenberries. Top off with Greek<br />

yoghurt.<br />

Premium CX-90 joins Mazda’s ranks<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

MAZDA HAS launched a twopronged<br />

attack on our medium<br />

and large SUV market with its<br />

new CX-60 and CX-90, a couple<br />

of genuine standouts that should<br />

have their rivals worried.<br />

The CX-90 is a worthy flagship<br />

that’s wider, longer, and more aggressively<br />

proportioned than any<br />

current Mazda. Joining Mazda’s<br />

respected SUV range, these two<br />

are the first products to launch<br />

off Mazda’s new Large Product<br />

platform, bringing fresh new designs<br />

paired with highly efficient,<br />

electrified power trains.<br />

Both the CX-60 and the CX-<br />

90 are the most important new<br />

models for Mazda in a generation.<br />

Easily the largest and most<br />

imposing model is the highly<br />

specified $92,990 CX-90 Takami<br />

inline six being evaluated here,<br />

amidst claims about it using<br />

less fuel and producing fewer<br />

emissions from a fair lump of an<br />

engine.<br />

The CX-90 is offered exclusively<br />

with Mazda’s most powerful<br />

production engine ever – a<br />

3.3L inline six-cylinder motor<br />

featuring 48V mild-hybrid assist<br />

technology. Engines of this type<br />

and size are almost a throw back<br />

to the 1980s and 1990s, to the<br />

large Ford and Holden Aussie<br />

sixes back then. Of course those<br />

motors and this newcomer have<br />

absolutely nothing in common,<br />

apart from similar engine capacities.<br />

The CX-90 motor is a totally<br />

different beast, with 254kW of<br />

power and heaps of low speed<br />

heft thanks to 500Nm of torque.<br />

Not surprisingly it’s easily outpointed<br />

in just about every direction<br />

on the performance compass<br />

by this mighty new sophisticated<br />

and refined six. It’s a highly<br />

accomplished and well-crafted<br />

motor in real-world driving, and<br />

a class standout for smoothness<br />

and refinement that not only<br />

equals, but also betters a number<br />

of more costly rivals. This is one<br />

of the most relaxing, yet responsive,<br />

large, luxury SUVs I have<br />

driven in the $100k price bracket,<br />

with excellent low-speed throttle<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 8; Handling 7; Build<br />

Quality 8; Comfort 8; Passenger and Load Space 8; Value<br />

for money 8; Road test avg consumption 10.2L /100km;<br />

Safety – ANCAP crash rating 5 star.<br />

Overall points out of 10: 8<br />

response and pulling power.<br />

This new generation motor has<br />

a new polished gear-changing<br />

companion in the form of a<br />

freshly developed 8-speed automatic.<br />

That’s two extra ratios<br />

than the long serving 6-speed<br />

automatic that’s still a mainstay<br />

current Mazda range.<br />

The CX-90 Takami offers<br />

voluminous amounts of people<br />

and load space and 7-seat versatility.<br />

Mazda have got the luxury<br />

detailing right with a 12-speaker<br />

Bose surround sound system,<br />

360 View Monitor camera system<br />

plus Adaptive LED Headlights<br />

with glare-free high beam. Black<br />

Nappa leather trim with heated<br />

and ventilated front seats and<br />

bright roof rails give the CX-90<br />

a good nudge even further up<br />

Quality St.<br />

Mazda i-Activsense safety<br />

throws an all-encompassing<br />

security blanket around the vehicle’s<br />

occupants, with 10 airbags<br />

Radar Cruise Control and Blind<br />

Spot Monitoring with vehicle exit<br />

warning function. The system<br />

isn’t done there, with a driver<br />

fatigue Monitoring camera and<br />

a Lane-keep Assist System with<br />

Departure Warning.<br />

For its size and weight, body<br />

roll is well disciplined and<br />

managed even when travelling<br />

briskly over undulating roads.<br />

The all-wheel drive system brings<br />

commendable stick ability and<br />

tenacity to the road holding and<br />

handling party.<br />

Mazda sets a high benchmark<br />

for consistently communicative<br />

and nicely weighted steering, and<br />

this vehicle delivers. I admire<br />

how the CX-90 intelligently<br />

blends exceptional luxury, space,<br />

pace, ride and road holding, to<br />

create one of the most convincing<br />

large premium luxury seven seat<br />

SUVs on our market.<br />
