Building repair time extension sought

THANKS: Firefighters were not only handed a cheque to say thank you for their hard work during the Port Hills fire – they also had hot chocolate at She Universe Cafe.

Port Hills fire crews rewarded „„ By Caitlin Miles THE TIRELESS efforts of the Governors Bay Volunteer Fire Brigade, following the Port Hills fires, continue to be recognised. The brigade received a donation of nearly $1500 to say thank you.

She Universe Cafe in Governors Bay created a special menu in gratitude. Cafe owner Debbie Prior said it was inspired by the dedication of firefighters. From every meal, the cafe donated $1 towards the special fund.

The menu ran for the month of March and on Monday night they handed over a cheque for $1495. Chief fire officer Andrew Norris said they didn’t expect the cafe to host a fundraiser but they were grateful and it came at a good time.

“The donation has helped us with a couple of big projects,” Mr Norris said. The brigade has just built a large garage and the donations have helped pay part of the $120,000 price tag. “We are really grateful to have the support,” he said.

THE FORMER Lyttelton Harbour Board building was supposed to be repaired by last month — but the extent of work is taking longer than expected. The building owners, Water Qual Ltd, applied for a heritage grant in 2015 and were given 18 months to complete work on the earthquake-damaged building. The city council approved a grant of $333,548 in October 2015, the owners were supposed to have the work completed by April but due to difficulties with the design, the project is running behind time. The owners are now asking the city council to extend the time frame by one year to allow the building to be finished and still be entitled to the money from the heritage grant. The new completion date would be March 23, 2018. It was designed in 1879 and has had many different uses over the years, up until the February 22, 2011, earthquake when it was severely damaged. The restoration of the project involved replacing the upper story and roof. •Turn to page 3

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK Sad news to hear the Farmhouse Tearooms has closed its doors after only six months. The quirky Victorian-inspired cafe in Orton Bradley Park captured the era with tea and scones. But the park board said it was too expensive to run. However, there are plans to open a new one by next season. See page 4 for that story. The support continues to flood in for the volunteer firefighters, it’s great to see as they do work tirelessly to keep everyone safe as they did during the Port Hills fire. Both Governors Bay and Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigades are busy raising money for the Sky Tower Challenge, check page 3 to see how Lyttelton is getting on. Sumner’s Harrison Whiteside had an impressive win at the NZ Surf Series, his maiden victory. There were also top three placings for a number of other local surfers. Have a look at the results on page 15. – Caitlin Miles

replacement of damaged trees in Hagley Park and South New Brighton Domain. Another $400,000 was given to replace 27 playground surfaces damaged by liquefaction. The playgrounds were around


the city and included Anzac Drive Reserve, Cashmere Valley Reserve, Avondale Park Playground, Barrington Park and the Cass Bay playground. In February, the South Brighton Residents Association asked

In Brief

the city council what happened to earthquake donations for the eastern suburbs. MP for Christchurch East, Poto Williams subsequently lodged an official information request with the city council. The response said city council staff in Auckland and Christchurch chose projects that would “benefit a wide range of Christchurch residents, were not funded by insurance, are in areas that are feasible for shortterm repair and did not have other allocated funds.” The same amount went towards fixing 43 parks in the eastern suburbs, among them Arthur Adcock Memorial Reserve, Linwood Cemetery, Bridge Reserve, Cuthberts Green, Wainoni Park, South New Brighton Park and Woolston Park.

Building repair time extension sought

Tasty Bites •From page 1 In a report to the city council the delay has been attributed to the extent of work being larger than originally thought and design issues with how to retain the heritage fabric of the ground floor. The issues associated with

the work have been resolved. Although the building did not collapse in the earthquake, damage to the structural masonry of the building was significant enough to warrant the removal of the upper storey, including the parapet and the roof.

A temporary roof was installed over the remaining ground floor to protect and preserve the part of the building which remained. While much of the building will retain its heritage fabric the first storey will not be built of


brick, instead it will be a lighter weight concrete material with a plaster finish. The city council has supported this modification. The city council will decide whether or not to approve the time extension at tomorrow’s meeting.

SKY TOWER CHALLENGE Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade has passed the $10,000 mark in its fundraising campaign for the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge. The team of 11 aimed to raise $6000 for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand but so far they have raised $13,051 towards the cause. The team will take place in the challenge in 10 days. To donate money go to CLOCK TOWER REPAIRS Work repairing the Lyttelton Clock Tower is nearing completion. Work to repair the tower started in January and is expected to be completed next month. The city council budget $170,000 to get the tower to 67 per cent of the New Building Standard. A new roof will be put on the tower, decorative lighting added and the clock restored to working order. WHARF REPAIRS Repairs to Akaroa Wharf are expected to be completed by the end of this month. Work on nonviable piles at Port Levy’s wharf is expected to be completed by June. Repairs to Daly’s Wharf is also about to begin. Work to repair historic damage is also about to begin. It is expected the work will be completed by the end of June.

News Orton Bradley’s cafe closed WORK: Orange Studio’s need $10,000 to varnish the wood in the studio to make it fire resistant and reach city council standards. Inset: Charlotte Crone ​

Fundraiser planned for studio ORANGE STUDIOS needs $10,000 before it can be used, and it is hoping to get a hand from the public. To be able to host concerts and events the studios have to be updated to fit regulations set out by the city council. Concert and events co-ordinator​Charlotte Crone, said they had met most of the requirements, the last is to have the studio’s plywood coated in a varnish that helps make it more fireproof.

“It’s just this last fire safety part that we have to do,” Miss Crone said. She said need to have the money by July so they can keep the liquor licence and to be able to continue to have public concerts and performances. “When the earthquake happened a lot of venues closed down and bands were trying to perform anywhere, so we saw it as an opportunity to help out,” she said.

The studio is hosting a series of concerts to help raise the money. A Concert for Concerts is being hosted on May 13, Miss Crone said they are hoping to raise “about a fifth” of what they need. It will be a cabaret-style show including music, belly dancing, comedy and entertainment. •For more information and ticket details go to http:// show/a-concert-forconcerts/

AFTER JUST six months, the cafe in Orton Bradley Park has been closed. The Farmhouse Tearooms opened in November. Former Purau resident Annie Baxter managed the 1890s-style venue, which served classic tea and scones in an ode to Victorian culture. Orton Bradley Park manager Ian Luxford said the decision to close the cafe was made as it was not financially sustainable. “The financial realities of providing the theme our model Annie is so passionate about, are just not sustainable,” Mr Luxford said. The concept of having a cafe in the park had been in the strategic plan for the last 10 years, but making the cafe a reality had been a limited by available funding and expertise. Mr Luxford said the park board had been impressed by Ms Baxter’s passion for the Victorian era and embracing the history of the area. She was employed to set up and manage the cafe. However, after one season, Mr Luxford said it was too expen-

sive for the park board to afford to run the cafe. “The park board could not afford to continue the café operation on this basis, so the decision was made to shut it for the season. If it were viable it would still be open,” he said. However, the park board is currently undertaking a review of the cafe operations to better understand how it can be made sustainable. It plans to reopen the cafe in October to coincide with the flowering of the rhododendrons and the reopening of the walking tracks after closure for lambing. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Will you miss the Victorian-style cafe in the park?

132-year-old Lyttelton church gets heritage category upgrade „„ By Caitlin Miles CHURCH OF St Saviour in Lyttelton has received a new heritage listing after surviving several moves during its 132year history. The Anglican church, on Winchester St, was originally a category two-listed heritage building but has now been upgraded to category one, much to the excitement of the church members. Following the restoration work completed on the church, Heritage New Zealand decided to upgrade the church to Gavin Holley a category one. This makes it a historic place of special or outstanding historical or cultural significance or value. It was changed due to its importance in the area following the Canterbury earthquakes. Church Property Trustees general manager, Gavin Holley, said it was a “rare honour” and those involved should be proud

HISTORIC: The church, which was reconstructed on the Holy Trinity site on Winchester St as a replacement, has had its heritage listing upgraded. PHOTO: ROBYN BURGESS. ​

of the upgrade. St Saviour’s has had an interesting history, it was constructed in 1885 to accommodate the growing number of seamen visiting the port. The church is also reputed to have had Antarctic connections, notably in the early 20thcentury with Captain Robert Falcon Scott and the crews of the Discovery and Terra Nova. In 1975-76, as a result of a dwindling congregation, the

Church of St Saviour was cut into pieces and relocated to the city where it was used as the chapel of Cathedral Grammar School for nearly 40 years until the Canterbury earthquakes. Many of the churches in Lyttelton were severally damaged in the earthquakes compared to St Saviour, which suffered minor damage. As a result the church was cut up in 2013 and moved back to Lyttelton, in place of the Holy

Trinity Church which was destroyed in the February and June 2011 earthquakes. When the church was moved back to Lyttelton it was restored and combined with a section of the Holy Trinity Church, the original stained glass window was saved and put in the refurbished church.​ The church was rebuilt in its original Gothic style and has been operating on Winchester St ever since.

Cruise ship berth for port welcomed LYTTELTON BUSINESS owners are happy to know cruise ships will be returning – bringing more money into the area. Lyttelton Port Company and the city council has released plans to build the new $56 million cruise ship berth, which will be custom built. Lyttelton Harbour Business Association chairman and SuperValue owner Rob de Thier was at the announcement and he said it was great news for Lyttelton. Shroom Room Cafe manager Nikki Cruse said it would be “excellent for business.” “People on cruise ships have a lot of money to spend here,” she said. Since the February 22, 2011, earthquake Lyttelton has not been able to accommodate large cruise ships, instead, the ships have been docking at Akaroa. The berth is expected to be completed by the start of the 2019 season, which was welcomed news to one Akaroa resident. Victoria Andrews said she was relieved the larger cruise ships would “take the pressure off Akaroa.” •Rise Up comments, p7

Big turnout at services

„„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttelton

Port Hills List MP Nuk Korako discusses why it is important to honour those who served in the numerous wars New Zealand fought in


Fashion ANZAC DAY is one of the most meaningful holidays in our calendar, and one that means a lot to me as a New Zealander, and as someone with many family members who served, and some who made the ultimate sacrifice. I know many of you will have attended Anzac Day services around the Port Hills. We know from previous years that attendance at these services is growing, led by a big increase from young people who have no memory of our most tragic wars, but who see the importance of honouring our veterans and fallen soldiers. This year it was my honour to speak and lay a wreath at the Lyttelton service, lay a wreath at the Heathcote Dawn Ceremony, (above) and attend the 19th Battalion and Armoured Regiments and Halswell services. This is the third of four years of commemorations marking

Safe summer overall


World War 1. In October we will turn our attention to marking the centenary of the horrific Battle of Passchendale. On October 12, 1917, 845 New Zealanders died – still more than any other day. A further 2700 were wounded. With such great loss it is important we continue to reflect on the sacrifice made in the fields of Belgium. This year high school students across the country have been invited to enter a competition to illustrate what Passchendale means now. The winner will receive $2000 and will travel to Belgium


for the commemorations. It is an exciting opportunity to engage today’s youth in telling an important story in New Zealand’s history. With the commemorations of World War 1, it is important to recognise the sacrifices our contemporary veterans who have fought in the Gulf War, Solomon Island’s and Afghanistan. It is a good time to applaud those men and women who walk among us that have made sacrifices and served our country. This year our thoughts are with the families of David Askin and James Maaka, who have just commemorated their first Anzac Day without these men. These two soldiers served their country with distinction in both military and civilian capacities, before losing their lives in tragic accidents on the Port Hills.

I HOPE you all had a good break over the Easter period and enjoyed some end of season time on the water. For me, it’s now time to reflect on the past boating season and prepare for the next. I have to say, I’m very pleased with the behaviour of most of the boaties out there; it was a pretty safe summer on the water. Reports that I have received from my safe-boating enforcement officers have generally been positive in terms of boating behaviour. During my season review process, I have determined that more education is needed for those who drive jet skis. There has been a noticeable increase in the use of jet skis as recreational craft throughout Canterbury and we have had many instances throughout summer where jet skiers have flouted the bylaw rules. The first thing to be aware of is that a jet ski is no different to any other form of powered craft on the water; the rules for boating safely are exactly the same. Some of the basic rules include the following:

When towing a skier or biscuit there must be an observer 10 years or older. The minimum age for using any powerboat, including a jet ski, is 15 years or older so if there is a younger person driving there needs to be a person over 15 years who is supervising and is in immediate reach of the controls at all times.  This applies on all waterways. Life jackets of an approved type must be worn when under way. No exceptions!         Jet skis must be identified with a registration number on either side of the vessel at least 90mm high, above the waterline, and visible to the naked eye from 50m. The required registration number is that of the trailer the jet ski is towed on. And just a quick note from me to finish off: Those of you who use the boat ramps at Moncks Bay (the yacht club ramp) or Scarborough (coastguard or public ramp), when you transit through to the sea it is a 5 knot area right through the estuary and then until you are 400m from the beach at Shag Rock. This 400m rule applies from the New Brighton side of Shag Rock along Sumner Beach through to Scarborough. Keep safe everyone!

Focused on warming up needy homes on Fashion This week Green MP Eugenie Sage writes about the importance of making the house warm to save money and keep members of the family warm and healthy during winter.​

More than 600,000 New Zealand homes, 30,000 of them in Canterbury have either no, or inadequate insulation. Cold, damp, mouldy homes make life miserable for the families living in them and increase their energy costs. They contribute to children missing school because they are sick, and to at least 40,000 hospital admissions annually. To me that’s unacceptable. I would like to see a major increase in Government funding to help retrofit these houses with insulation and clean heating but I don’t expect that to be part of the Government’s Budget 2017. To help ensure people can afford to switch on the heater, the Green Party is promoting a new winter warm-up electricity payment. It would cover 75 per cent of the average increase in power prices over the winter months and help an estimated 69,000 low income Canterbury households pay

ening Gardening ONE OF the great things about being an MP is the range of community organisations we engage with. Recently I visited Community Energy Action at its Tuam St offices. CEA does an amazing job. It has insulated more than 20,000 homes since it was established in 1994. Its Curtain Bank has provided lined curtains to 5000 homes to help keep out draughts and keep homes warm. If you need ideas on how to double glaze windows cheaply or draught stop doors, then visit CEA’s small “show home.”

their winter power bills. The winter time payments (around $327 in Canterbury) would be available to households that earn under $50,000 a year – the families and people who need help the most. The “winter warm up” payments are based on similar programmes in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and Australia. Across New Zealand the scheme is expected to cost $112 million annually. The Government has received $1.3 billion from the partial privatisation of our energy companies so we see it as only fair that we give a little back to those who need it most. I believe home insulation, clean heating, and ensuring people can afford to heat their homes are powerful ways to improve quality of life in winter and reduce preventable hospital admissions. I’m interested in your views.

We said: The city council has said a planned $56 million cruise ship berth will allow large cruise ships to return to Lyttelton Harbour You said: Ann Vallance – Cruise ships are far to big for Akaroa. They are in danger of destroying the very places they are visiting. In some places in Europe you can have several of these monster ships in one port alone. Bigger is not always better. I think it’s time some of these cruise companies contributed to the cost of the bigger berths and increased infrastructure they now require to cope with the masses. Sue Mumby – Don’t know why Akaroa residents are moaning They will miss the money. John Gamblin – About time, that will stop Akaroa

people from moaning. Linda Blackwell – About time, then it can be peaceful in Akaroa again. Bernadette Laing – Can’t believe what some people in Akaroa are saying, we were so lucky to have them. When the downturn happened some business may have gone under. I have heard things like: “We can’t get our coffee as the shops are full”. And this was the best; “we can’t get a car park” need I say anything more? Neill Roberts – In order to do this they will dredge the harbour profusely and dump the silt out at sea which will then wash back in towards Christchurch beaches. Water quality at our beaches will change. But hey there’s money to be made so who really cares – right?

RESTORED: Heritage listed Stoaddart Cottage was repaired and reopened to the public last month. ​

Public to have a Gardening

say over heritage

THE FUTURE of heritage in Banks Peninsula is open for public feedback. The city council has taken the heritage conversation to the community to define exactly how it wants heritage to look like and what it should be for the next 50 years. “Heritage can mean a number of things to a number of people and it’s important that our new direction reflects that,” city council head of urban design, regeneration and heritage Carolyn Ingles said. It is looking to build sustainable partnerships, which has already begun with heritage recovery and regeneration with

Ngai Tahu. “The local rūnanga’s concept is the kind of thinking we’re talking about. Celebrating the history and stories of our past and present residents,” Ms Ingles said. The city council is seeking feedback from the community with workshops, drop-in sessions, online engagement, school visits and discussions with the six Papatipu Rūnanga. Many buildings around the Banks Peninsula are currently in different stages of rebuild with five opened in the last month. More buildings across the peninsula are expected to open throughout the year.

Theatre group wants more members „„ By Caitlin Miles A DECLINE in numbers over the last four years has the Sumner Theatre Group looking for more members. Group secretary Karen Hallsworth said since the earthquakes numbers have been dropping. “Following the earthquakes, people had so much on it wasn’t the most important thing on people’s minds,” Ms Hallsworth said. The group currently has 13 cast, five band members, and four to five support crew. They have recruiting evenings every year to encourage other locals to get involved. “People come to the show and want to get involved and we encourage them to come along to the sign-up night,” she said. This amateur group has been running for more than 50 years, putting on annual cabaret shows to a high standard, on a voluntary basis, to raise funds for local community groups. Every year they put on a show

PERFORMERS: The group hopes to gain more members ahead of this year’s performance. ​ for four weeks, beginning Friday August 18 and ending Saturday September 9. Rehearsals for the next show begin on Sunday, May 14 and are held weekly on Sunday and Monday nights. Local community groups are involved in selling the tickets and whatever profit is made they get to keep.

The recruiting evening is being held on Sunday, May 7 at 7pm in the temporary Sumner Community Centre at 22 Wiggins St, Sumner. If anyone is interested in joining the group or wants more information on the group email Ms Hallsworth on or phone 027 200 1572.

WORK: The city council need 8400 protective cages constructed by winter. ​

Help needed for Port Hills replant RESTORATION work is about to begin in Victoria Park, with more than 7000 plants needing to be replanted. The park, on Dyers Pass Rd, was partially destroyed in the Port Hills fires in February and the section destroyed needs replanting, to do this the city council is hoping to involve volunteers in the project. Protective cages need to be put around the newly planted trees to protect them during the winter for a better chance of survival and to stop them from being eaten by hares. The city council is calling for volunteers to take part in making the cages, Port Hills Ranger Di Carter said it was a big task to get them finished before winter. “There’s a lot of preparation work that needs to be done before we can start

replanting and cage-making is just one of the tasks we need to tackle. We’re probably going to need about 8400 cages so it’s a big job and one we’re hoping the public will help us with,’’ Ms Carter said. From now until May 13 the city council will be holding daily cage-making sessions at the Victoria Park ranger headquarters where people can go along with the help of the park rangers. “We will be running morning and afternoon sessions and providing all the equipment needed. We can take up to 15 volunteers at each session and we welcome kids getting involved, as long as they are aged over 10,’’ Ms Carter said. People can register to help at port-hills-volunteering-cage-making/christchurch ​

Kids get crafty and active IT WAS a fun trip to the Redcliffs Village Library for local children when they took part in some school holiday activities. It was the first time the programme has been run at the new building with more than 12 children taking part. The children made book marks and Easter chicks before listening to some stories read by volunteer librarians. The event concluded with a scavenger hunt through the library looking for chocolate treats. The library is also now open for longer on Thursday, from 10am-7pm and Saturday 10am12.30pm. Shoreline Youth Trust also hosted a range of activities. The children had a go at tie-dying, went to Inflatable World and played football.

PLAY: Having fun jumping and playing at Mega Air.

CRAFT: The children were careful while they made their master pieces. ​

SKILLS: Children at the Shoreline Youth Trust went to Olympia Gym and learnt a few things about gymnastics.

PLAY: Georgia and Fletcher had fun running around Inflatable World.

ARTY: Making colourful bookmarks were also a part of the holiday fun event. ACTIVE: The good weather gave the children a chance to get active and play a game of football at Sumner School.

CALL UP: Dylan Nel has been a standout for Sumner over the last 12 months. He is expected to be unavailable on Saturday after being called into the Crusaders as Injury cover. ​

Intercept try costs Sumner „„ By Gordon Findlater AN EFFECTIVELY 14-point intercept try midway through the second half was the back-breaker for Sumner in Saturday’s Battle of the Beaches. New Brighton took the spoils in the annual match at St Leonard Square 28-13. Sumner coach Martin Dodgson described his team’s efforts as energetic and enthusiastic. However, a couple of moments of brilliance from their seaside rivals proved the difference. Sumner held a slim 8-7 advantage at the break, with the second half producing the bulk of the action. “The crucial moment was the intercept try,” said Dodgson. “The momentum was really in our favour. We had an overlap, so if the guy doesn’t catch it we were under the sticks ourselves so it was a 14-point turnaround.” The game was predominantly

played up front. Dodgson singled out the performance of lock Thomas Manley, who came into the game feeling unwell but was in New Brighton’s face for the entire 80min. Saturday’s game also provided the first start for Canadian Logan Martin-Feek who stood in at first-five in the absence of Nik Cumming. “He just had his 19th birthday on Monday and he played like he was 30. He’s dark because he missed a couple of kicks but jeepers he drove the team around the field like a veteran,” said Dodgson. Looking to bounce back when they travel to Burnside this weekend, the team face a few challenges. The team are expected to be without a couple of key players for the clash including star No 8 Dylan Nel who has been called into the Crusaders as cover for injured All Blacks captain Kieran Read.

SUMNER’S Harrison Whiteside won his maiden NZ Surf Series event by dominating last week’s 2degrees Men’s Canterbury Championships at Gore Bay. Whiteside, 21, posted a 16.57-point heat total out of a possible 20 in the final to defeat Anthony Hema, Tane Wallis and Conor McLennan in the open men’s division. A number of other local surfers also had strong results. Neill Robb also grabbed a title, winning the over 45 category. There were also podium finishes for Aaron Lock (over 35), Alan Temoananui (over 28) and William Wallace (longboard). Known for going to the air whenever possible, Whiteside did not hold back in the final boosting a big front side air reverse to post a nine-point ride and put a significant gap between him and his three opponents. While Whiteside took the glory in the premier division, he could not stop Raglan’s Taylor Hutchison from notching up his third win of the season in the under 20 boys division. Hutchison surfed to a

12.77-point heat total in the final with Conor McLennan going two places better than the open division with a runnerup finish ahead of Dunedin’s Ruben Peyroux in third and Christchurch’s Henry Hawke in fourth. Hutchison’s win leaves him in second place on the overall rankings still trailing Whiteside but with one event up his sleeve to catch the Sumner surfer. The dual-sanctioned Surfing New Zealand, South Island Surfing Association event was contested at Gore Bay for the its entirety after New Brighton dawned to a calm ocean for three straight days. Participants across the eight divisions vied for $9000 in cash and prizes. Results: Open men’s division final – Harrison Whiteside (ChCh), 16.57, 1; Anthony Hema (Bull), 12.17, 2; Tane Wallis (Piha), 11.83, 3; Conor McLennan (Chch), 8.6, 4.

Travel Drifting through Fiordland „„ By Mike Yardley CRUISING through our fiords had been lingering on my wishlist for quite some time. I revere Fiordland and its formidable terrain, which produces its own weather pattern, with an annual rainfall index measured in metres. Recently, I boarded Princess Cruises’ latest liner to potter around our coastline, Emerald Princess, which is a novel way to appreciate the beauty of your own country. Sailing overnight from Port Chalmers, I awoke early to grizzled misty skies, as we entered the remote, untouched reaches of our biggest fiord, Dusky Sound. Fortified with freshly brewed coffee, I ventured out on the promenade deck, as we glided by cinematic mountain ranges, garlanded in wispy long white clouds. Fleetingly, a flash of frolicking dolphins was lapped up with palpable passenger delight. In stark contrast to the heavy swells rounding the South Otago Coast, the inky waters of Dusky Sound were millpond-smooth, as if the ship was gliding on an ice rink. To marvel at this masterpiece of grand-scale nature from the vantage point of a cruise ship really is quite breath-taking. Fiordland

SPECTACULAR: Cruising into one of the fiords on the Emerald Princess and passing by Bowen Falls.

boasts 14 fiords and after Dusky, our next assignment was the exalted grandeur of Doubtful Sound. Entering its snout, this skypiercing cathedral of sheer granite walls feels positively Jurassic, otherworldly and all-consuming. The live soundtrack of lofty waterfalls cascading down the sheep granite slopes serenaded our arrival, while lumbering fur seals wallowed on rocks by the entrance to the fiord. The sheer, rugged landscape of towering mountains, clad in primeval rainforest had me half-expecting a brachiosaurus to shuffle into view.

The heroic dimensions and the untouched beauty of the fiord that makes Doubtful such a profound encounter. Later in the day, the clouds cleared and spectacular sunshine bathed us in warmth, just as we entered Fiordland’s most famous poster-child, Milford Sound. The recent precipitation turned on a giant waterworks spectacle, with a vast curtain of waterfalls thundering down the rock faces to the sea. I spied the vein-like patterning of Bowen Falls turning on a splashy show, beyond the ship’s stern. On starboard side, the backside of Mitre Peak, thrust

its majestic presence towards the heavens – the world’s tallest mountain to rise directly from the sea. The thick forests that carpeted the mountains took on an emerald hue in the golden autumn sun. But for all its wraparound photogenic splendour, it’s your relative sense of insignificance that comes into sharp relief, when thrust into the bosom of such ravishing, grand-scale majesty. I felt like a speck of life in a landscape carved for giants. And the 113,000 tonnes of the 15-storeyed Emerald Princess was similarly rendered comically small, in the clutches of such granite-walled grandeur. Drifting through the fiords, retired Department of Conservation senior ranger, Ian Thorne, was our expert guide with a treasurechest of nuggets to share with us, after clocking up 35 years of conservation work in Fiordland. Ian specialised in biodiversity work with endangered birds and leading pest eradication programmes. It was a thrill to see Fiordland’s offshore islands upclose, which are veritable arks for our most endangered species. Richard Henry was one of pioneering conservationists, transferring kakapo and kiwi to islands in Dusky Sound, over a

FAST FACTS •Princess Cruises operates a series of Australasian and South Pacific cruises, with five ships currently home-ported down under. An extensive schedule of sailings into Fiordland will resume later in the year, in the 2017/18 summer season. For more information and cruise bookings, see your travel agent or visit www. century ago. Many of the kakapo call Anchor Island home, which is predator free. Ian has worked extensively on its neighbour, Resolution Island, eradicating stoats in pursuit of predator-free status, too. Passing by Wet Jacket Arm, Ian remarked that this is where 10 Canadian moose were let loose in the forest, in 1910. In spite of persistent rumours of moose sightings, no evidence has surfaced that they’ve survived. As we exited Dusky, we drifted by another DOC sanctuary, Breaksea Island, which clocked up a world-first for its successful rat eradication programme. For all of the stupidity wrought by our forebears, introducing pests to our country, the tireless endeavours to safeguard our natural species in Fiordland’s dedicated sanctuaries is patriotically uplifting to see.

Driven Fresh driveline for Peugeot 2008 „„ By Ross Kiddie I’M A firm believer in the twowheel-drive sport utility vehicle market. The reason being is that most SUV buyers have no intention of taking their cars/wagons into a loose surface environment, there is mostly little need for fourwheel-drive. A lot of manufacturers are into that concept and they are increasing the number of 2WD SUVs. Peugeot has just launched a new crossover/SUV/wagon – the 2008. While its concept has been around for a few years, the newcomer has a fresh driveline and a fairly hefty upgrade. Loosely based around the 208 platform, the 2008 is an SUV of mini proportions at just over 4m, but it has a practical interior that is capable of transporting awkward loads with adaptable and versatile rear seat configurations. It is also a comfortable car for four adults, it’s a bit of squeeze width-wise for three adults in the rear but there’s no shortage of head or leg room, and the 2008 is clever in the way it translates its limited space into occupant comfort. The 2008 lands here in two levels, $34,990 will get you into the Allure, an extra $2000 will

buy what Peugeot describes as the GT-Line, it gets a wealth of sporty trim accents, bigger wheels (17in) and a higher spec including a clever grip control system. Effectively, it is an advanced traction and stability control programme that also allows the 2008 to tackle those offthe-seal situations that arise from time to time, but bearing in mind cross-country travel is limited. Under the bonnet is a new turbocharged, three-cylinder engine and six-speed transmission which is finding its way across Peugeot and Citroen lineups. I’ve encountered this unit in other Peugeot product and it is an engine which punches well above its weight, you have to discard the notion of it being small, it is a strong, capable power plant

which thrills with its honesty. Peugeot rates the 1192cc unit at a healthy 81kW and 205Nm. Not only are they high outputs for engine size, it’s the area where the power is developed that is most interesting. Peak power comes in at just 5500rpm and maximum torque is available from 1500rpm, both low in the rev band and that is what you need in all engines, the ability to haul from low revolutions. Boost from the turbocharger is also constant, there is little lag at any point. If you also add in the benefit of a six-speed automatic, there’s never a point where you think the gearing and engine output aren’t matched, the driveline is fluid and responsive. Peugeot also list a 1280kg kerb




The compulsive new thriller from the author of the bestselling The One Who Got Away. K Keep your secrets. Tell your lies. The gripping new BOO psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling HIS T The One Who Got Away. An old castle ... For more than 150 years, a grand house known as Alden Castle has stood proudly in the rolling hills of California’s wine country, home to a family weighed down by secrets and debt. A fresh body ... When the castle is sold, billionaire developers move in, only to discover one skeleton after another - including a fresh corpse - rotting in the old family cemetery. An unsolved mystery ... As three generations of the well-respected Alden-Stowe family come under scrutiny, police unearth a twisted web of rivalries, alliances, deceit, and treachery. A gold-digger wife, a demented patriarch, a daughter in the grip of first love ... Who has lied? Who will survive? And who, amidst all the horror and betrayal, is the lucky one?

weight for the 2008, that’s quite light, offering a healthy powerto-weight ratio. The gearing has been structured so that there is reasonable acceleration to highway speed with a tallish top gear so that the engine is relaxed at 100km/h, turning over slowly at 2000rpm. At that speed the engine is sipping fuel at the rate of just fivelitres per 100km (56mpg), that promoted a 7.2l/100km (39mpg) average during my time behind the wheel. These are satisfactory figures but are a little distant to Peugeot’s 4.8l/100km (58mpg) combined cycle claim, although my driving style doesn’t augur well for fuel economy. On the subject of figures, the 2008 is lively enough, it will reach 100km/h from a standstill in just over 10sec and will complete

a highway overtake in 6.9sec (80km/h to 120km/h). Peugeot has always had a reputation for ride/handling quality and that has been engineered into the 2008. It has a compliant, moderately-firmed ride with a handling feel that is moderately sporty. The chassis isn’t disturbed by mid-corner bumps or road deviations, the suspension does a good job of keeping body balance. Providing the grip are 205/50 Good Year tyres, according to the casing they are worded all season and during my time with the test car they were certainly put to the test on wet surfaces, heavy rain lowered grip levels substantially. Nevertheless, the entire car felt secured to the road and steering feel is another Peugeot hallmark, the 2008 as a package constantly feels controlled and safe. The latter of course is fivestar rated and sits beside a healthy level of specification, major features include satellite navigation, touch screen infotainment, cruise control and speed limiter and high quality trim materials. The new 2008 is an example of a good car made better, the new driveline is certainly a case of less is more.

Midnight Blue

by Simone van der Vlugt Amsterdam 1654: a dangerous secret threatens to destroy a young widow’s new life. Following the sudden death of her husband, twenty-five year old Catrin leaves her small village and takes a job as housekeeper to the successful Van Nulandt merchant family. Amsterdam is a city at the peak of its powers: science and art are flourishing in the Golden Age and Dutch ships bring back exotic riches from the Far East. When a figure from her past threatens her new life, Catrin flees to Delft. There, her painting talent earns her a chance as a pottery painter. Slowly, the workshop begins to develop a new type of pottery to rival the coveted Chinese porcelain – and Delft Blue is born. But when tragedy strikes, Catrin has a hard choice to make. Rich and engrossing, Midnight Blue is perfect for fans of Tulip Fever and Girl with a Pearl Earring.
