Agony for chopper pilot’s family Father always dreaded getting the call „„ By Gabrielle Stuart PAUL ASKIN has spent many years fearing terrible news about his son Steve. On Tuesday, that moment came when police arrived to tell him Steve had been killed in a helicopter crash, while he was fighting the Port Hills fires. The cause of the crash, which happened near Sugar Loaf, is being investigated by police, the Civil Aviation Authority, and the Transport Accident Investigation Commission. Steve, 37, died leaving his wife, Elizabeth, and two children, aged seven and four. He was a military hero, awarded a NZ Gallantry Star for his bravery while fighting for the SAS in Afghanistan in 2014. He had his ear shot off while rescuing hotel guests during a five-hour shootout against the Taliban in Kabul. Paul said Steve was the kind of person it was easy to be proud of. “I always thought if I was a hostage being held somewhere like that I would want boys like him coming to my rescue.

MEMORIES: Paul Askin said he was very proud of his son, who was a dedicated father, husband and brother. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER COURAGE: Steve Askin was awarded a NZ Gallantry Star while fighting in Afghanistan. He volunteered to help fight the Port Hills fire in his helicopter.

Somebody’s kid has got to do it,” Paul said. He said Steve always wanted to do something worthwhile with his life. His last conversation with his son, who live next door, was on Monday night, chatting while Steve cooked the family’s dinner. Midway through Steve got the call about the fire, warning he could be called up to fight it. He was an experienced pilot for Way To Go Heliservices, but usually did agricultural work.

Paul said Steve was excited about being able to help, and left soon after the call to make sure the helicopters were ready to go. “He loved fighting fires, it was the best part of flying, for him,” Paul said. The next morning, Paul heard him leave at dawn. Steve called his wife from the helicopter later that day. When Paul got home later that afternoon, he said he heard there had been a helicopter crash. •Turn to page 3

Rise Up Christchurch

Thursday February 16 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

AS I write this column at 6pm yesterday just before the edition goes to bed, all hell is breaking out. Evacuations in heavily populated areas, houses under threat, and real fears that the fire could enter city urban areas. Who knows what will we will wake up to this morning. But should have it got this way? That is the biggest question that will no doubt be asked when debriefs/inquiries are made into this fire. The public was told on Tuesday evening that the fire was under control. But a decision taken after the fatal helicopter crash may not have been the best one – choppers and fixed wing aircraft were grounded. Debriefs will no doubt focus on whether that was a wise decision and whether the hours lost fighting the fire before darkness fell allowed hot spots to slowly come back to life and reignite the blaze. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the Christchurch to Lyttelton railway line electrification completed on February 14, 1929. On February 15, 1967, the Waltham Lido Pool was opened. On the same day in 1976, 25,000 people attended a concert by singer Neil Diamond at QE II Park. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited the city on February 16-17, 1963. On February 16, 1770, Captain James Cook in the Endeavour sights Banks “Island” (Peninsula). On the same day in 1883, the Belfast Freezing Works (the first in the Christchurch area) began operation. On February 16, 1981, Seattle (Washington, United States),

became a sister city. On February 17, 1908, a 30m whale stranded at Okarito. The skeleton is now on display at the Canterbury Museum. On the same day in 1939, the Millers Department Store building opens (right). Designed by G. A. J. Hart, the building contained the South Island’s first escalator and later became the Civic Offices. It was demolished after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. On February 18, 1982, writer Dame Ngaio Marsh died at her home in Cashmere. On February 19, 1873, the Anglican synod decides (by a narrow margin) not to sell the present site of the Christ Church Cathedral.

Port Hills fire Decisions defended „„ By Tom Doudney FIRE CHIEF Douglas Marshall is defending not bringing in helicopters in the early stages of the fire. People in the Lansdowne Valley area say if choppers were used quickly it may not have spread from East Valley Rd in Tai Tapu. Mr Marshall, the Selwyn principal rural fire office, said the matter would be reviewed at the end of the operation. “In the heat of the moment we often get those comments that things perhaps could have been organised sooner and part of our review will have a look at that,” Mr Marshall (left) said. A state of emergency was declared late yesterday afternoon in Christchurch and the Selwyn district as the fire spiralled out of control leading to evacuations in Westmorland, Kennedys Bush and other areas. “At this time we are comfortable that we did call the resources appropriately and it’s something we will look at and just check as part of our own processes in making sure we have done things right.” He couldn’t immediately say what time helicopters were called in on Monday but didn’t believe

a chance had been missed to stop the fire getting as big as it did. “There is always a combination of factors with fires and fires on hills are always challenging because of the terrain. Although helicopters have been our principle firefighting attack today Tuesday), often ground crew can be more than adequate to meet the initial demands.” Evacuated Tai Tapu resident Graeme Causer said if helicopters had been brought in earlier and locals’ advice had been heeded, the fire might not have spread so far. Another resident, who declined to be named, said that while he

was away on holiday in Northland when the fire started he was concerned at hearing reports that helicopters were not called in soon enough. He was also disappointed that the Selwyn District Council did not have a water main going up the road which could be used by firefighters. Mr Marshall said the matter of the water main was something that could be looked at and followed up on. Meanwhile, arcing power lines are being investigated as a possible cause of the Port Hills fires. Mr Marshall said fire inves-

tigators had been working to determine the cause of the fires over the last couple of days. He said arcing power lines would likely be one of the options they were looking at. “They’ll be looking at that for sure.” He said that was the case with any fires that occurred near power lines. Nothing had been ruled out, he said. “Nothing’s in and nothing’s out.” Orion chief executive Rob Jamieson said Orion would be doing all it could to assist the Fire Service in the investigation. •More fire photos, p4-5

Agony for helicopter pilot’s family •From page 1 He called the hanger, and was told it was one of their choppers. “I thought, if the cops turn up, that will be him.” A police car arrived soon afterward, and he said he knew his son was dead the minute he saw it. He said Steve was courageous, generous, a great story-teller, an adventurer, a mischief-maker, and had the cheekiest smile. Steve spent almost all his free

time with his family, and was very close to his brothers and two sisters. Steve met his wife, Elizabeth, through family friends, and they went on their first date up in a helicopter around Banks Peninsula. “I think Steve tried to scare her, but she was not easily scared,” Paul said. The family gathered yesterday, and he said there had been many stories shared. Steve’s brother-in-law shared

the last conversation they had, where Steve advised him to live more frugally and spend more time with his family. “He inspired people to do great things – although some things were also pretty stupid,” Paul said. Steve left the army two years ago to spend more time with his family, and Paul said he missed the sense of adventure and close relationships he had in the army.

“But Steve found there was a kind of success and thrill in seeing your kids grow and blossom, and he took a lot of satisfaction from that,” he said. He said the whole family were still struggling to come to terms with what had happened. “We’ve got a hell of a mountain to climb, but the only way up is together,” he said. “The best tribute we can pay to Steve is to love his kids and his wife.”

EVACUATION CENTRES Centres have been set up for those who have had to evacuate their homes. Lincoln’s Selwyn Events Centre is open for Selwyn residents, while those in Christchurch were told to head to Te Hapua: Halswell Centre. Worsleys Rd, Westmorland and Kennedys Bush were the first places to be evacuated yesterday. MAJOR POWER OUTAGE The fires caused 89,000 properties to lose power across Christchurch yesterday. The outage lasted for 30min and also caused traffic lights to stop working. DRONE WARNING Police issued a warning yesterday not to use drones near the Port Hills as fire crews work to battle the fires burning. Police say people are using them to photograph the blazes. “There are a number of aircraft flying in the area as they try to put out the blaze and for that reason the Civil Aviation Authority has enforced a restricted airspace,” said police. SMOKE WARNING A health warning issued by the Canterbury District Health Board prompted five schools – Sumner, Mt Pleasant, Heathcote Valley, Our Lady Star of the Sea and Redcliffs School, at the Van Asch Deaf Education Centre – to shut all doors and windows yesterday morning. ANIMAL SHELTER Arion Farm Education Park is offering space on their farm at 890 McLeans Island Rd for people to put their animals due to the Port Hills fires. The park’s manager Suzie Hynam said it can take every kind of animal right down to rats. Spare cages are available for small animals through to paddocks for livestock and horses.

Sir Miles stays put AS FIRE spread down the hills above his beloved historic Ohinetahi homestead and gardens, Sir Miles Warren wasn’t going anywhere. About 107 residents on the other side of Governors Bay, Teddington Rd, were evacuated at 3am yesterday morning. That order hadn’t extended to the homestead and gardens, but if the call had come, Sir Miles said he wouldn’t have heeded it. If the house was to go down, he would “go down with it,” he said. “My plan was to either run to the sea or jump in my pool.” Yesterday morning he was in the garden at the Ohinetahi homestead, where the plants were coated in falling ash from the fires burning 300-400m away. The homestead, a category one heritage building, was built in the 1860s and some of the roses growing in the garden were planted in the 1870s. Sir Miles, a prominent architect, has lived there for 41 years, having restored the homestead and developed an extensive

He gifted the property in 2012 to be kept in a trust for the public. “If this place was to burn, I would just lose my life’s work,” he said.

But when he woke, the fire had reached his neighbour’s sheds and he could see smoke rising through the trees. “It’s just quite spooky to see the smoke rising up around my property.” Sir Miles wanted to thank firefighters and helicopter pilots for their efforts.

Josh’s bid to woo you „„ By Bridget Rutherford AFTER MORE than two years in the making, celebrity chef Josh Emett’s Madam Woo restaurant has opened in Christchurch. The Michelin-starred chef and his business partner Fleur Caulton’s restaurant opened at the McKenzie and Willis complex in the central city today. It is their fifth Madam Woo, which serves traditional Malaysian hawker food. The others are based in Takapuna, Hamilton, Dunedin, and Queenstown, where the original opened in 2013. Mr Emett said they had been looking for a Christchurch location for two to three years. They had to find the right building for the restaurant, with parking, sunlight and a reasonable amount of foot traffic, he said. “We’re really glad with where we are. “We stuck to the formula of what we know and that is outstanding Malaysian food and great service.” The MasterChef New Zealand judge said they would source local produce where they could

and expected people to come in droves to dine there over the first couple of months. He had a simple message for Christchurch people. “I look forward to seeing you here. Eat loads and be happy and I hope you enjoy it.” The menu will include dishes such as chicken and prawn laksa and its hawker roll – a

roti canai-style roll topped with a choice of pulled sticky pork with pickled cucumber, percik chicken with toasted coconut, and soy sesame eggplant with red chilli dressing. Ms Caulton said there had been a lot of interest in Madam Woo coming to the city. “It took us ages to work out where we wanted to be. It’s a re-

ally good site for us,” she said. “We’re really positive about Christchurch and where it’s at.” The decor of the restaurant was “light, airy and fun,” with most of the pieces coming from Christchurch antique houses and shops, she said. Madam Woo is open every day for lunch and dinner, with a takeaway service.

Botanic Gardens revamp costs escalate „„ By Gabrielle Stuart DESIGN WORK for a major Botanic Gardens revamp is expected to total almost $140,000 – before the work begins. The draft plan includes a major garden redesign to focus on native plants and telling the story of the Canterbury region, and a new bridge. It is set to be made public next month, when it is put to Mayor Lianne Dalziel and the city councillors for approval. But the bills for the plan are already adding up. The design work, which has been done by Auckland firm Isthmus Group, cost $49,000, while the initial city council consultation with “key stakeholders” is expected to cost $90,000. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the cost was high because the process was complex, a lot of groups were involved, and the work took several months. “While the cost may seem high for this process it is merely a reflection of the many hours of research required to develop a plan that has many complex layers to interweave,” he said. He said full public consultation would be done before any of the projects went ahead.

Victoria Square restoration to begin

Convention Centre design completed

„„ By Bridget Rutherford THE RESTORATION of Victoria Square will begin at the end of the month. The central city landmark, formerly known as Market Square, will be fenced off on February 27 so work can begin. It will include removing and replacing thousands of pavers damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, and a new stormwater system. Otakaro Ltd and City Care will add new seating, tables, water fountains, rubbish bins, bicycle rails, lighting, and a punt stop next to the river opposite the Town Hall. The Bowker Fountain will be temporarily removed to upgrade its mechanics and pipes and a new cycle lane and wider footpath will be installed on Colombo St to make it safer for people entering the square. Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority initially planned to spend $7 million changing and revamping the square, but scrapped its plans after a public outcry. During the work, there will be no access onto Colombo St from Oxford Tce and no parking along Colombo St, between Kilmore and Armagh Sts. The restoration is expected to be completed by March next year.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford PRELIMINARY designs for the Convention Centre have been completed. An Otakaro Ltd spokesman said it would call for tenders from a shortlist of contractors midway through next month for the development, which will span two blocks between Cathedral and Victoria squares. It expected to appoint a main works contractor around July, the spokesman said. “Remediation work will soon be completed on the Convention Centre site and the next phase of earthworks will get under way,” he said. “This will see level working platforms created across the site to enable the main works contractor to make a swift start on the facility’s construction around the middle of the year.” Earthworks began on the site in October. The Convention Centre was originally meant to be completed this year. The Government was to develop it with Plenary Conventions New Zealand. But, in June last year, the Government announced it would complete the project alone. It is expected to be completed in 2019.

OI MANAWA: The Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial is set to be unveiled next week.

Quake memorial named „„ By Gabrielle Stuart OI MANAWA is the name chosen for the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial, which will be unveiled on Wednesday – the sixth anniversary of the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The name means ‘the tremor of the heart’ in Maori. It was chosen by Ngāi Tahu and Ngāi Tūāhuriri. It was approved by representatives of the families of the 185 people killed in the earthquake.

Ngai Tahu culture and heritage general manager Lynne Te Aika said the name had a double meaning. It could both refer to the shaking of the land and the impact on people who lived through the earthquakes, she said. “It impacted all of us deeply, both those who had loved ones pass and the rest of us, so it’s a good metaphor,” she said. They also looked for a name which would be short and easy

for people to pronounce, she said. The name was approved by the memorial steering committee, which includes representatives for families of the victims. The memorial wall, which is by the Montreal St bridge, will be unveiled in a private ceremony for the families on Tuesday. The public dedication and memorial service will be held at the site at noon on Wednesday.

Election 2017

Lawyer’s bid to reclaim former Lawyer turned Labour Party candidate Duncan Webb will run against seasoned politician Nicky Wagner for the Christchurch Central seat in September’s general election. Bridget Rutherford looks at how he plans on claiming the historically red seat back MORE THAN five years ago, the Labour Party lost the Christchurch Central seat for the first time in history. Duncan Webb was gutted. He was incumbent candidate Brendon Burns’ campaign chairman during the 2011 general election build-up. It was the first time Labour had lost the Christchurch Central seat to National since it was established in 1946. Now, the former lawyer has begun his fight to get it back – this time as the candidate. Dr Webb, who has been a member of the Labour Party since 1999, remembers losing the seat well. “I consider it a huge tragedy.”

BATTLEFIELD: Labour’s Duncan Webb will go up against current Christchurch Central MP Nicky Wagner for the seat in September’s general election. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ He was at the Elmwood Tavern when the final vote tally was read out – a dead tie of 10,493 votes each. But after special votes were counted, Ms Wagner won by just a 47-vote majority. The election was held on November 26, nine months after the devastating February 2011 earthquake. “Christchurch was utterly disrupted,” Dr Webb said. “There were difficulties in getting people

to vote – they didn’t know where to vote.” He said at that point the Labour Party was in “retreat”. “Brendon Burns was a fantastic MP, he worked himself to exhaustion. I suspect he wasn’t as visible as he wanted to be.” Losing isn’t a feeling Dr Webb would like to experience again. “I’ve lost and I’ve been poor and both of them I didn’t like. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.”

He was referring to his childhood. Dr Webb moved to Christchurch from London when he was five. His father put himself through bible college and became a pastor at the Maori Evangelical Fellowship Church in Wainoni. After living in Aranui, the family moved to South Brighton where he and his four siblings grew up. They lived off the donations

that were put in the church’s plate. In a lower-socio economic suburb that wasn’t much, he said. He never saw himself becoming a lawyer let alone a politician when he was attending Shirley Boys’ High School. He left before finishing year 13 and headed to Canterbury University to study law using the money he had saved from working at South Brighton SuperValue to pay his enrolment fee. “No one in my whole extended family had ever been to university.” His first job was at Parry Field Lawyers where he was a debt collector. From there, he was a university lecturer, academic and lawyer and became a partner of Lane Neave in March 2010. He helped and represented Canterbury homeowners struggling with earthquake claims following the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. His profession is part of the reason he is standing. “I come from 30 years of working as a lawyer, professor of law and judicial officer. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t work and there’s a lot to fix. Government is the only to fix it.”

staunch seat for Labour Labour was ready to lead again, he said. “It’s presenting as a Government in waiting. “There’s a real sense now that change is possible.” He wanted voters to compare him with Ms Wagner, who he said had “tried hard” over her two terms. “My job is to let people know I’m here and give them the information they need about me to make a comparison.” That’s how he plans on claiming the seat back. His office is on busy New Regent St. People can’t help but look in when they walk past – that’s why he chose it. His team has already visited homes in Opawa and Beckenham. Over the weekend he took part in a working bee in Edgeware. There are some areas of the electorate Dr Webb’s team know they can’t win, including Merivale and Redwood. He believed the real battleground lay in St Albans and Mairehau. His campaign was about meeting as many voters as possible, and letting them get to know him

on a personal level. “That’s the only effective strategy.”

Mental health, inequality and the redevelopment of the central city were real concerns for him

and things he hoped to work on fixing if elected. “I’m deeply concerned about the level in which the recovery favoured some people. And that’s not right.” Before she was elected to Parliament in 2005, Ms Wagner was a school teacher turned businesswoman and Environment Canterbury councillor. She is the Minister of Customs and Disability Issues and Associate Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, Conservation, Health and Tourism. Ms Wagner said no one believed National could take central – but her philosophy of “hard yakka pays off” had proved them wrong. “It was a great sense of satisfaction because I had worked so hard for so long.” But it was the culmination of about five years having reduced Labour’s winning margin for the two elections leading up to it, she said. •Turn to page 16

She said Dr Webb had proved he could listen to quake-affected communities and businesses and he needed to transfer that across to neighbourhood groups. “At the end of the day a local electorate seat is won by the connections of respect you can build with local residents, this is what encourages them to come out on a Saturday and tick your party and also your name.” Dr Webb said Labour had a better chance of winning the election now John Key had stepped down. “John Key was a highly charismatic leader. He had the ability to reassure people that nothing was wrong when Rome was burning.” He said with Prime Minister Bill English people were seeing what they were getting without the “PR gloss and spin.” But Ms Wagner disagreed. She said although some people were fond of Mr Key, Mr English had different strengths. Dr Webb doesn’t have a plan B. He resigned from Lane Neave in June and is putting all his energy into his campaign. He jokes he will be available for work if he is unsuccessful. “Come and talk to me then.”

•From page 13 Ms Wagner said she would continue to have a strong presence in the electorate to try and hold on to the seat. “I’ve always been very active in the local community. I’ve never wanted to stand anywhere else.” She said the development of the residential red zone, the continuation of the Avon River Precinct – which she was responsible for – and getting more events to the city would be focuses for her during the next term. “I want to make sure we develop these opportunities so young people say of course I’m going to stay in Christchurch.” She said some people coped better than others following the earthquakes, but the city’s future was looking brighter. “I think that’s always a danger when you have a natural disaster.” Canterbury University political science senior lecturer Bronwyn Hayward said it would be a tense and exciting campaign with two strong contenders. But she said there was no substitute for presence on the ground and Ms Wagner knew this well, she said.

Pastor takes on Brownlee

„„ By Bridget Rutherford RICCARTON BAPTIST Church pastor Anthony Rimell will stand for Labour against Gerry Brownlee en the Ilam electorate. Mr Brownlee has held the seat for National since the electorate was formed in 1996, in what has always be a blue ribbon area. Mr Rimell (right) said would not stand if he did not think he had a chance, he said. “You wouldn’t do this if you didn’t believe it was possible. I’m going to be out there fighting for any vote we can.” Mr Rimell, who joined the Labour Party following the 2014 general election, has been pastor at Riccarton Baptist Church for about four years. He decided to stand because of the issues that faced the electorate, such as social housing. Mr Rimell stood unsuccessfully in the Waimairi Ward in October’s local body elections. Labour Party president Nigel Haworth said Mr Rimell joined a list of energetic and fresh candidates.

„„ By Tom Doudney THE SECOND phase of a programme to clean up Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere is expected to involve a substantially larger financial investment. Environment Canterbury briefed city councillors on the Whakaora Te Waihora programme at a public meeting on Thursday. A document initially included David in the agenda Bedford for that briefing indicated that the second phase, to be carried out over the next 10 years, would cost a total of $95 million. This would complement a “community contribution” to cleaning up the wider Selwyn Waihora catchment of $774.6 million over the same period. After Star Media inquired about the figures, the document was pulled from the agenda and no mention was made of the costs at the briefing. The first phase of Whakaora

ECan chairman David Bedford confirmed that about $95 million in resources would be required to progress lake restoration actions over the next 10 years. “The Te Waihora CoGovernance Group is currently progressing the draft investment approach. No further detail can be given

on investment in Te Waihora restoration until that is finalised,” he said. Mr Bedford said the Te Waihora Co-Governance Group, comprised of ECan, Ngai Tahu, the Selwyn District Council and city council, also recognised the commitment made by the community and several agencies in managing water in the Selwyn Waihora catchment.

Quake recovery THREE MONTHS on from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake on November 14, encouraging recovery progress is being made in affected communities. The Government and local authorities are working alongside not-for-profit organisations and businesses on a multi-pronged recovery effort in the wake of the quake. People’s well-being and livelihoods are our top priority, so over the last three months we’ve provided financial assistance, temporary accommodation and psychosocial support services to those who need it. We’ve committed $17.5 million to a business support package for the Kaikoura, Wellington and Hurunui districts, $5 million to the primary industries’ sector and we’ve given health services in Kaikoura and Marlborough a $3.7 million boost. On top of that, we’ve provided $3 million in additional funding for GNS Science and announced a $3 million fund to subsidise the reinforcement of masonry facades.

Gerry Brownlee We’re seeing good progress dealing with the massive slips north of Kaikoura. We have a big task ahead of us to restore full access on State Highway 1 before Christmas this year. The New Zealand Defence Force has also sent eight hydrographers to Kaikoura to survey the area’s sea floor and map the shifts caused by the earthquake. The results of the hydrographic survey will be used by Land Information New Zealand to update the nautical chart of the Kaikoura Peninsula. As with all significant events, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management will conduct an internal review of its response. I’ve invited representatives from all political parties to participate in a discussion about the country’s Civil Defence structure and what legislative changes may be required. Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

We said: Millions of generous donations poured in during the aftermath of the earthquakes, and people, particularly in the east, want the city council to break down where it went You said: Jo Zervos – I think a lot of people who donated might be disappointed. I know that $6.5 million was put into the new QE II facility for children’s aquatic play. However, of that, only about half is going towards the play and the other half is for the building to put it in. When the council agreed to a new facility, it was meant to include leisure components and the donations were on top of that. Many are disappointed at this one example.

Warren Lee – A fair request indeed. I would also like to know the list of donors that pledged and the amount actually donated, what they were pledged for and how it has been spent.

Mel Burt – That’s exactly what it’s all about . . . getting out and doing something you didn’t think that you could do. I was the exact same and finally ran a half marathon, keep going.

Julie Lightowler – Definitely want to know. Half of it could have gone to pay for the Rugby World Cup in Auckland?

Janette Chick – Go Amanda, you will never be the same again. Doesn’t take too much to get hooked.

Annette Ross Savill – I know this journey only to well. I have a regular exercise routine and have completed some 10km walks. Three year journey that has seen me slow down because of sickness and injury. But they never really stopped me. Josie Bishop – I’m doing it. Walking though, and I think it’s likely to kill me. Wtg Amanda, I could never run it, I think you are wonderful Sarah Moore – I can really recommend Parkrun to keep the fitness going. I believe you have two in Christchurch. It’s a 5km timed run on a Saturday morning at 9am. It relies on volunteers, so some weeks you run, some you give back by volunteering. It’s welcoming to all, even those who can only walk the course.

We said: The latest delay over the Christ Church Cathedral decision has left Bishop Victoria Matthews frustrated

it’s resolved. Just look at the picture above! Jill Lang – Why can we not deconstruct it, use what we can in rebuilding it to look exactly as it did, but with today’s building materials and to today’s standards? It is the icon of Christchurch and was the picture everyone knew meant this city.

Barbara Holland – What very selfish people. They have absolutely no thought for the people of Christchurch who have endured the fear that came with the earthquakes and the distress that it caused and that is still being felt with having this constant reminder of what has been. While the Cathedral sits there in this state, there will never be closure for the people of Christchurch, as it is a constant reminder that they are living in a broken city. It is demoralising and beyond sad.

It is disgusting and shameful to leave it like it is. Rebuild what can be saved, it has always been Christchurch city’s icon and a main attraction. What is Cathedral Square without the Cathedral?

Charmaine Andresen – I came down for three weeks over January to February and made the now annual visit to this beautiful old church to see it still crumbling away slowly.

Jim Rennie – This is ridiculous, it’s now far to long and is so sad. The Government should take the lead and resolve this now. Get in a room and don’t come out till

Rise in number of motorists running red lights „ By Gabrielle Stuart CHRISTCHURCH’S growing red light-running problem is leaving dozens of injuries in its wake. In the past year, there were 65 crashes which left people injured after drivers ran red lights, up from 42 the year before. At the city’s top 10 worst intersections this month, almost 5400 drivers ran red lights in a single day. That was up 31 per cent from last year, and 64 per cent more than in 2014. They do not include people turning right across an intersection on a red light. The worst for red light-runners was the intersection of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville St, where 652 were detected on a single day on Thursday, December 1. Police figures have also grown. In the last year, 1491 people were ticketed for running red lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in 2014. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart (left) said he was disappointed to see the rise. “It puts people at risk. They may get away with it 99 out of 100 times, but it is that one time which could leave someone injured or killed,” he said. He said police had a focus last year on bad driving at intersections, which included red light-running, and that would continue until the numbers improved. People often had different excuses when ticketed for running red lights, but there was no acceptable reason, he said. “A lot of people are simply focused on other things and don’t see it, but that is just as unacceptable as running a light deliberately, because when driving you should be focused on the task at hand,” he said. •Turn to page 4

It is also apparent that the plans are not confined to the three suburbs listed in the initial proposal. And I have heard from residents from other suburbs across the city, who have also received the letter stating that their home may make its way to market. It would seem that nothing is off the table when it comes to what could be sold. I want to see National front up and tell Christchurch residents exactly what their plans are. Why were the letters sent out all across the city? Are sales of homes outside of the three identified suburbs on the table? Are the newly built units also on the block? When will there be more information available? Next Monday I will be hosting a public meeting at 7pm at the Riccarton Baptist Church, along with community leaders and tenants, for locals concerned about the sales. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Warren Hancock – Saw the Cathedral while on holiday in January. The weather is slowly destroying the building. For goodness sake, it’s been almost five years, the Government should step in and do something. It’s now a joke.

LATE LAST year we learned that hot off the back of failures in Invercargill and Horowhenua, National’s plan to sell off state houses is coming to Christchurch. We were told that 2500 homes in Riccarton, Bryndwr and Shirley were to be sold off. In spite of throwing the word ‘community’ around a lot in their announcement, Labour’s Phil Twyford revealed that National were sending staff off to Sydney to try and drum up buyers. I voiced my opposition to the sales at the time and continue to do so. Not only is it a monumentally bad idea to sell off this asset, but we’re in the midst of a housing crisis and we have 41,000 homeless in New Zealand. The sales are even more difficult to fathom when we know that previous attempts to sell state houses have failed. I believe the best way to protect our social housing and ensure that, as a country, we can continue to offer affordable housing, is for the state to own the housing.

Curly or straight? Sharon holds clues

LOOK CLOSELY, there is something unusual about Sharon the sheep – and it could help us understand what makes human hair curly or straight. Far from being just one of the flock, the merino corriedale cross is one of about five or six ‘mutant’ felting lustre sheep around the country which have been identified for study by AgResearch. Research into mutant sheep has AgResearch scientists hoping for a greater understanding of curly and straight hair in humans, and the potential for innovative new wool products. While it is not known how many felting lustre sheep there are, they are rare and share the naturally occurring trait of straight wool, instead of the usual crimped wool. “With these mutant sheep, we can for example look at twin lambs where one has straight wool and another crimped wool – or one animal that transforms from straight to crimped wool over time – and study the key differences,” scientist Jeff Plowman said. “This can then be applied to our understanding of the differences in human hair. It’s an opportunity we would

never have been able to get with human subjects.” The work began in 2011, when an Otago lamb with an unusual coat was brought to the attention of AgResearch staff involved in wool research. Its appearance was so unusual that the lamb was initially thought to be a cross between a sheep and a goat. Part of this was because the lamb’s straight lustrous coat was reminiscent of an angora goat. Genetic testing showed it was 100 per cent sheep and its coat was the result of natural mutation. “As a result, we started trying to locate more of these

rare sheep, so we could study what makes them different and how proteins in the wool affect the fibres,” Dr Plowman said. “Thanks to the assistance of farmers who came forward with these sheep, we were able to do that. We have found they

Gardening Advice with QUESTION: How do I decide

Be in to win a PRIZE PACK!

$100

which plants or trees would prefer bark or something like Mulch & Grow? For example, a lemon tree or roses in the garden and tomato or cucumber plants in pots.

Congratulations!

Today’s winning question came from Maureen Power

Even if you’re the most hands off gardener, the most important task to do during the summer months is apply mulch around plants, especially those in pots. Mulching is vital in maintaining a healthy garden and hinders water evaporation - keeping moisture in the soil. This is particularly important on exceptionally hot or windy days and helps prevent plants from wilting. Always create a clean slate and remove all weeds before applying your mulch.

ANSWER: Possibly the most important issue here is that you mulch, rather than which particular mulch. Applying mulch around growing plants helps retain soil moisture, repress weed growth, and as the mulch breaks down it improves the soil’s organic content. Whatever product is easily available, be it; Daltons Mulch & Grow, Daltons Bark, pea straw or Daltons Compost, these will all be of considerable benefit in your garden. What is important is the depth of mulch that is applied and how frequently it is reapplied during the growing season. The recommended depth of mulch to apply is 50-60mm. Too greater depth and water will struggle to percolate through, while insufficient depth and weeds will rapidly immerge. The depth of mulch can be greater around existing mature trees and shrubs as opposed to around vegetables, where the depth should be less. A common myth is that blood and bone should be applied with the mulch, especially sawdust, as it is believed that the mulch will rob the soil of the available nitrogen. This only occurs when applying very large amounts of sawdust, and nitrogen loss is only very temporary.

We have the ultimate Daltons Garden Mulch & Grow pack to giveaway.Each pack is valued at $100 and contains: 3 x Daltons Mulch and Grow 2 x Besgrow Coir Mulch 2 x Daltons Nugget Bark PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

Email your question and glove size to: chchstar@daltons.co.nz

Send us your gardening question to be in to win!

Products to try: Daltons Mulch & Grow, Daltons range of bagged bark products.

SALE SALE Peas for children to grow SALE EXTENSIVE RANGE Ouruhia SUGAR SNAP peas are tasty, easy to grow and perfect for planting with kids. Because they’re quick growing they fit well with the attention spans of children and they can be eaten straight from the garden. You don’t need heaps of space to grow these sweet tasting peas but have something for them to grow up like a trellis or netting. Once you’ve got the perfect spot to plant, dig in a little fertiliser or compost to give the seedlings a good kick-start. Then make a little hole and pop a seedling in. Plant each seedling around 20cm apart from the next. Your peas will grow in a pod like beans and will be ready to harvest in around eight to 10 weeks. Not sure if they’re ready? Just taste-test EASY: Sugar snap peas grow podthem. like.

Theatre/Arts

31

New style of show business „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SOPHIE PETERSEN and Keeneth Love have spotted a gap in the city’s arts’ market to create smaller – but “game-changing” – theatre. Willing to take a risk, the two artists have set up their own theatre company in a bid to bring more diversity to the industry. Having just graduated from the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art, the artists want to prove that smaller scale productions are financially viable in Christchurch. “We feel the city is the right place . . . we just want to find a space where we can not only create work that is unique, but also create work for actors as well,” Love, 27, said. The pair have set up So Keen Productions to bring theatre to the city in a sustainable way through small-cast productions. They both wanted to set up their own company, and the idea for the new enterprise was formed at the end of last year when the two realised they had the same mindset. “We spoke the same language almost all the time and then,

NEW EDGE: Keeneth Love and Sophie Petersen are the faces behind a new theatre company aiming to bring more diversity to the city. PHOTO: CHELSEA SHEEHAN-GAIGER ​

over the new year, we suddenly realised there was no point in us doing different things,” Love said. Petersen, 21, said for a start the company will stage musical theatre and plays, run education programmes for primary-aged children and workshops for

aspiring performers. But the pair want to keep their programme broad and may branch out into different mediums such as film. “We are trying to stay away from the mainstream shows that would generally be shown at bigger theatre companies,” Petersen

said. While she loved productions from the city’s larger companies, such as Showbiz Christchurch and The Court Theatre, she hopes their organisation will bring a “new kind of edge” to theatre. And already they have an-

nounced one of their first shows for the year, which is set to be an intimate play staged at whisky and cocktail lounge, The Last Word, on New Regent St. First Love by American playwright Charles Mee is a twoperson play exploring the themes of love, obsession, violence and relationships. “It is immersive in the sense you are in the room with them, you are experiencing their relationship . . . it is a lot more intimate than a lot of theatre I think Christchurch is used to,” Petersen said. The duo have teamed up with NASDA head of acting Soseh Yekanians who has previously said musical theatre in the city is conservative, out of date and unadventurous. As well as directing First Love, Yekanians will run a workshop with So Keen Productions on audition techniques and acting for the camera. •The rest of the company’s shows for this year are expected to be announced at the end of next month.

Selwyn Sounds

33

Hear tracks from new Mi-Sex album live „„ By Tom Doudney IF KIWI rock heavyweights Mi-Sex needed any validation for their decision to record their first new album in 33 years, the live crowds’ reaction gave it to them. The band’s fifth album Not From Here was released in September with vocalist Steve Balbi replacing original singer Steve Gilpin, who died in 1991. Mi-Sex will co-headline the Selwyn Sounds concert in Lincoln on March 4 with Dragon. Other big acts will include The Jordan Luck Band, Annie Crummer, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood, Sharon O’Neill and Jason Kerrison. Keyboardist Murray Burns said the band had been playing a mix of old and new material on their recent North Island tour with The Feelers and Dragon. “You could tell that some of the younger members of the crowd knew a few of our songs like Computer Games and Blue Day but they didn’t really know the other ones,” Burns said. “What was very rewarding for us was that an audience that weren’t really familiar with our

THEY’RE BACK: Mi-Sex are touring again after putting out their first new album in 33 years. The band say recording material with new singer Steve Balbi (below, far left), was an easy process.

old and new material responded in some ways stronger to our newer stuff than our older stuff. That made the whole experience of recording new songs feel really worthwhile to us.” After so long without writing music together, Burns found working on new material to be surprisingly easy. “To jump in a room with someone you have never written a song with, with Steve Balbi, was an amazing experience. Steve is a fantastic songwriter and lyricist and the basic embryos of those songs came together in a matter of minutes.”

Burns said the band had been having a great time since they started touring again in 2011. “We are treating Mi-Sex more as an experience again after 30 years of not playing,” he said. “We are not feeling that we are going to go out and conquer the world, we are not 21-years-old any more, but we are having a really good time playing and we also had a really good time making this record.” When they’re not touring, the band members live far apart – in Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney and, in Burns’ case, Byron Bay, New South Wales.

Access lock speciAlists

“We decide on set lists and things like that when we meet at airports quite often,” he said. Burns produces music for young bands from his own studio but aside from that, doesn’t listen to much new music. “I live in the countryside and I quite enjoy just the empty space because music is a big part of my life. I will be in the studio today mixing for five or six hours and when I come out of the studio I mostly drive around with the windows down and don’t listen to much music,” he said. “I listen to the birds in the trees, actually, and the wind.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be held on March 4, from 11.30am-8.30pm. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketek and buyers will be able to pre-purchase a return bus ride between pickup points in Christchurch or Rolleston and Lincoln Domain.

Cruise the photogenic Greek islands „„ By Mike Yardley NEARLY 20 years ago, while doing my big OE, I scored a job on a Greek cruise-ship. I was employed as the DJ in the taverna of Royal Olympic’s flagship, the Stella Solaris. Not only did the experience fortify my abiding passion for travel, but my inexhaustible love affair with the Aegean Sea. The cruise company I worked for sadly went bust after 9/11, but it’s wonderful that those storied Aegean waters can still be explored afloat a Greek-owned and crewed cruise line, Celestyal Cruises. Recently my family hopscotched our way around the Greek Islands and Turkey aboard Celestyal Nefeli. With a passenger capacity of 1100, this mid-sized ship certainly holds high appeal with cruisers who prefer not to sail the seas amid the swarming hordes of humanity associated with mega-liners. But best of all, its smaller size enables easy navigational access into the smallest of ports, without the need for tendering. The Aegean Sea is the postcard-perfect playground for a leisurely cruise, where the millpond-smooth waters are peppered with absurdly photogenic stops. We embarked on their sevenday Idyllic Aegean cruise, which departs from Lavrion, Athens, and is necklaced with 10 alluring ports of call. It’s a superbly curated taster itinerary of the Aegean’s sheer grandeur, seductive charms and variety of experiences. With the bulk of the sailing taking place while you sleep, the itinerary maximises your amount of time in port, whether you’re taking a shore excursion or free-roaming. First up, the glittering rockstar of Mykonos shuffled into view, with its scallop-shaped harbour crowned by the iconic windmills and whitewashed sugar-cube

houses, in deep blue trim. The other signature Aegean superstar, cliffside-clinging Santorini, bookmarked the cruise, the final flourish to the island-hopping itinerary before we disembarked back in Athens. But in between, Celestyal Nefeli called into a kaleidoscope of lesser-trafficked Greek islands and Turkish coastal gems. Samos is a heart-stealer, an island of lush landscapes, crystalline water and colourful townhouses. Then there is the volcanic marvel of Milos, brimming with bewitching rock formations and the greatest number of beaches in the Cyclades. Timeless Ios is a revelation, home to the pre-historic settlement of Skarkos and the Tomb of Homer. And one of my new favourites in the Aegean is Syros, where the port town of Ermoupolis swathed in Venetian architecture and cobbled lanes, strung across the conical-shaped hills rising up from the harbour. Few places make such a stirring first impression, on arrival. Beyond the Greek Islands, the cruise also dipped into the richness of Turkey’s Anatolian coastline, home to the seaside-

sweet Cesme and also Kusadasi, from where you can revel in the stupendous ruins and ancient treasures of Ephesus. What an undeniably idyllic week of discovery. Being the only home-ported Greek cruise ship in the Aegean, Celestyal understandably places a premium on the authenticity factor. Like a patriotic call of duty, they pride themselves on knowing the Aegean better than any other cruise company and how to share that passion for the region’s extraordinary history and culture. Because I’d previously visited many of these islands, our family opted to do our own shore excursions in many ports of call. However, Celestyal does offer a comprehensive range of reasonably-priced tours. For example, in Kos, a salivating option was their excursion to local familyrun wineries and honey makers. If you’re a history hound, their Pythagoras excursion on Samos is unmissable. If you’re hankering for traditional island cuisine, Celestyal excelled in connecting travellers with family-run tavernas where

the food was sublime. No tourist menus here! Celestyal Nefeli isn’t endowed with the bewildering spectrum of next-generation mega-liner gimmickry, but you’ll be cloud comfortable with the full range of standard cruise amenities. I enjoyed a great selection of cocktails and genuine Greek coffee from a variety of bars, noshed decadently at the Leda Buffet, while the Aegean Restaurant offered a more formal dining affair. Greek crewed and staffed by a United Nations-style contingent of waiters, attendants, and cruise hosts, their humour, personality and ultra-attentive service ethos is a class act.

FAST FACTS • The cherry on top of a Celestyal cruise is the affordability factor. Sharply-priced, on average, you’ll be exploring the Aegean and enjoying all of the ship’s services for $200 a day. The cruise line is currently offering a 15 per cent early bird booking discount on 2017 summer cruises in the Aegean, and an allinclusive package which also encompasses drinks and shore excursions.

TIP OF THE WEEK Many of you will be stretching vigorously before and/ or after your training session. You do this because others are doing it as well. There is not much evidence that a conventional stretching routine prevents injury or keeps you flexible. There is no real need for stretching unless you have a specific problem with particular muscle groups and you have been advised by a physiotherapist or doctor to stretch. The most effective form of stretching for flexibility is yoga, but you will have to do it on a daily basis and for a minimum of 20 minutes and for most of us it will not make us better runners. On behalf of the team at Sportsmed (www.sportsmed.co.nz) Dr John Hellemans, Sportsmedicine Practitioner/Coach This programme and accompanying information are written as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.

English shooter completes Tactix line-up „„ By Gordon Findlater THE MAINLAND Tactix squad for next month’s ANZ Premiership has been completed with the arrival of England international Kadeen Corbin. Corbin, 25, arrived in Christchurch on Saturday. The 1.77m shooter took to the training court for the first time yesterday after visiting the likes of the noodle market and New Brighton Pier with teammates in the first few days. “It was really nice to meet everyone on the day I arrived. We did some off-court team stuff that day, it was good to be the missing piece of the puzzle and connect with everyone,” said Corbin. She has played more than 30 internationals for England and will fill the void in the Tactix shooting circle left by Bailey Mes, who has joined the Northern Mystics, and Mwai Kumwenda who will play for Australia’s Melbourne Vixens. Playing in New Zealand or Australia has always been the objective for Corbin who worked

as a physical education teacher in England. She believes playing in the domestic competition will help her to push her case for regular selection in the national team. “I’ve always wanted to come and play out here. It’s always been a goal I just didn’t think it would come this quick,” said Corbin. She comes from a strong sporting family. Corbin is the cousin of Olympic sprinter Asha Philip who won bronze in the women’s 4x100m relay in Rio de Janeiro. Her older sister Sasha is also an England international netballer and will play in the mid-court for the Northern Mystics this season. “This is her first time here as well so to do it together, have the experience at the same and play against each other is really exciting,” said Corbin. The pair have become known for their post-game back-flips which they first showed off after England’s win in the 2011 Netball World Series final against New Zealand.

“We were both in gymnastics at a really young age. We can still do the back-flips, that’s something we will never lose so we like to celebrate like that on big occasions,” said Corbin. She’ll need to make a big impact in her new team if there are to be any back-flips at Horncastle Arena. The Tactix haven’t finished outside of the bottom three in top flight competition since 2009. “That’s what I’m here for, to improve as a player and help the team improve massively,” said Corbin. Corbin and the Tactix get their first chance make an impression in the new domestic competition when they begin their ANZ Premiership campaign against Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic on March 26.

Keegan a pacesetter at sprintcar series „„ By Allan Batt FEW PUNDITS would be totally surprised that former national modified champion Luke Keegan is among the pacesetters in this Hydraulink War of the Wings Sprintcar Series. But the 36-year-old from Christchurch is slightly surprised that he goes into the last three rounds as the series points leader, in spite of having not yet won a feature race. He is keen to notch up his first win at Ruapuna Speedway this Saturday night when the fifth round is contested. “Winning a feature is the aim of the game, but I’m not focusing on that too hard,” Keegan said.

OUT IN FRONT: Luke Keegan puts his Americanbuilt V8 sprintcar through its paces at Ruapuna Speedway. PHOTO: MAINLAND PHOTOS ​ “We’re putting more energy into getting some more speed out of the car. I’ve still got a bit to learn but we’re getting there.” Keegan, who is in his first season of racing sprintcars

started his career at Ruapuna in the late 1990s and went on to race V8 modifieds at Woodford Glen Speedway, where he was one of their most successful racers on the national stage.

The competitive nature of the sprintcar class, along with the lure of the $60,000 war of the wings series prize pool, has enticed him and his car owner, Boulton Motor Sport, to Ruapuna. It is Keegan’s consistent performances that has reaped him a solid points haul at each of the four rounds to date. He is the only driver to have secured ‘top three’ points positions at each of those rounds courtesy of good performances in the time trials, heat races and features and although Jamie Duff has won three of the four feature races, on each occasion Keegan has been on the podium.

The current Canterbury club champions defeated 2015 Crosbie champions, the Hornby Panthers, 17-12 in the grand-final to win the popular competition which is now in its third year. OVER 60S CRICKET SUCCESS THe decision to field a Canterbury team for the first time this year in the New Zealand national over 60s cricket tournament paid dividends. Canterbury met Northern Districts in the final of the tournament in Lower Hutt. Batting first Canterbury set a formidable target of 205.  after losing early wickets Northern were forced to take risks and eventually fell 97 in the 27th over.

HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9.

Mazda MX-5 offers thrilling drive „„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN MAZDA first produced its MX-5 convertible, the concept was loosely based around the high performance Lotus Elan of the 60s. There’s no denying the success Mazda has had with the MX-5, every generation has been true to the original, and I don’t know anyone who isn’t smitten with the affordable sports car. That being the case, I was a little surprised to find that the latest generation model was designed in collaboration with the Fiat/Chrysler group. We are unlikely to see the Fiat equivalent here in New Zealand, it’s rumoured to be a left-hand-drive model only; but we will see Abarth versions here in right-hand-drive, and it will arrive with a 1.4litre turbocharged engine. Incidentally, Abarth is the performance arm of Fiat in Italy. I’m not here to praise the Abarth, I doubt that I’ll ever get a drive of that vehicle, but what I do know is that Mazda is determined not to lose grip on the popularity of MX-5, nor its market share, and have launched it here in four variations to cater for all driving tastes. In simple terms, there is a 1.5-litre manual model, a 2-litre manual or automatic, and a 2-litre convertible hardtop. I’ve driven all but the hardtop, and have come to appreciate what Mazda have done with the MX-5, it is still the fun, beautifully balanced sports car which has a chassis and suspension that can only be described as delightful. This evaluation focuses on the 2-litre manual, and it sits in the market at $46,995. $40,995 will get you into the 1.5litre manual, automatic transmission on the 2-litre adds $1500. Effectively, the engine is the same, but for bore and stroke differences which determine cubic capacity. The 2-litre model pumps out 118kW and 200Nm against 96kW and 150Nm, and if you add in its weight of just over 1000kg the power-to-weight balance is definitely biased towards performance. When you fire up the Mazda MX-5 you know you are in for a thrilling ride; the engine is raspy

MAZDA MX-5: Designed with the Fiat/Chrysler group.

and a little raw, not so that it’s overbearing, but it does have sound which lets you know that there is something just a little bit different about the car. It has always been that way, it’s just part of the ethos that harks back to my introduction, the Lotus Elan was also vibrant from under the bonnet. • Price – Mazda MX-5 Ltd, $46,995 • Dimensions – Length, 3915mm; width, 1735mm; height, 1230mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, rear-wheeldrive,1998cc, 118kW, 200Nm, six-speed manual. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 6.6sec • Fuel usage – 6.9l/100km

Where Mazda has excelled with the MX-5 is in its driving dynamics, you feel so very much a part of the car, everything from the short-shifting gear lever through to the feel from the suspension and the way you as a driver are connected to the rearwheel-drive feel, the MX-5 involves the driver and drags him/her tightly to the elements which make it the sports machine it is. In terms of performance, the MX-5 in 2-litre form will haul to 100km/h from a standstill in 6.6sec, and will make an overtaking manoeuvre in 4.9sec (80120km/h). And at the same time it will also sip fuel frugally, Mazda claim a 6.9l/100km (41mpg) combined cycle average. The twin-camshaft, fourcylinder unit is one from the new range of SkyActive engines which have found their way into most of Mazda’s current product, it has character and likes to be heard; at highway speed it settles down, but if you

use the power on tap it is there to entertain audibly. The MX-5 is all about character, and it has a chassis that delivers one of the finest handling sensations you are ever likely to experience. The steering is pin-sharp, and by sitting almost over the rear axles you get a lot of feel as to what the suspension is doing in relation to the road surface. Short-wheelbase, rearwheel-drive cars can be twitchy at the rear under power, and the MX-5 is no exception, but grip through the 205/45 x 17in sport specification Bridgestone Potenza rubber is high and you really have to work hard to lose traction. Of course, that is immediately arrested through the traction control electronics, but the point is the MX-5 can be playful and, as a buyer, you wouldn’t want anything less. I took the test car inland from Windwhistle almost all of the way to Lake Coleridge Village, my favourite high country road, and thoroughly enjoyed the way the MX-5 attacked the corners yet drives in a fashion which allows the driver to use its qualities to full potential. The driving environment is one of massive appeal, everything about the MX-5 is beautifully engineered, from the cockpit to lowering the roof down with one hand in one easy movement, there is nothing to criticise, and the newcomer is true to the concept which has made it so successful and appealing. Of course, it is a selfish car, any buyer will only be able to have one passenger at a time as it has two seats only, and that in itself suggests that everything about the MX-5 is a little different.
