Historic buildings reopen „„ By Caitlin Miles IT’S ANOTHER step forward as more historic buildings are repaired and reopened in Banks Peninsula – with five expected this month. The historic Stoddart Cottage is expected to open today, while the Diamond Harbour Community Centre War Memorial Hall is expected to open tomorrow. Stoddart Cottage has been closed while repairs were completed. Cottage Trust chairwoman

Paula Smith said it was a fantastic to have it finished and she was looking forward to it opening back up to the community. “It’s great to have it opening; it’s sort of weird when it’s closed – there’s something sad about it,” Ms Smith said. Repairs at Custom House in Akaroa have also been completed. It was able to stay open to the public to view during the repair work. It was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The brick chimney was reconstructed in a lightweight meth-

od, which included a steel frame and ply bracing to the necessary walls. Internal repairs and full interior and exterior decorating have also been undertaken. Work is in the final stages,

with the house expected to open at the end of the month. Coronation Library, also in Akaroa, was fully stripped on the inside and needed repainting following earthquake damage and maintenance issues. A new heating system has also been installed at the library. Minor works on Governors Bay Old School House have

also been completed. It will open to the public at the end of the month now that the deconstruction of the chimney and completion of a new heating system has been done. The school house’s opening was slightly delayed while the new heating system was made compatible with the original 1928 switchboard. A repaint of the interior and exterior has also been completed. More buildings across the peninsula are expected to open throughout the year.

Sumner play first home game of the season After three tough weeks on the road, Sumner play their first home game of the season at St Leonards Square on Saturday against University. The team will warm up at Van Asch Deaf Education Centre before making the short run to their home ground ahead of kick-off at 2.45pm. Sumner will look to turn the tides after going down to University 28-38 in the pre-season. •Turn to page 21 PHOTO: ROZELLE MAY

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK

Inside

IF YOU have ever been to an Anzac Day ceremony, it is a very moving moment indeed. While standing there, it is almost overwhelming to think about the enormous sacrifice men and families made. Imagining the loss of your friends – including those you have over for dinner or for a barbecue – in the most brutal of fashion is incomprehensible to a generation not immediately impacted by war. We have the details of Anzac Day ceremonies on page 3 this week, followed on page 5 by a story about Bill Mitchell, the 104-year-old who will lead the main parade. Finally, on pages 7 and 8, we look at the fallen soldiers who have been commemorated in an exhibition at Linwood Library. –Caitlin Miles

to hear, and he said he would still argue for it. He said if the station was staffed all the time it would reassure the community of a greater response. Resident Paul Dietche agreed, he said it was “a disgrace” to the community that the station would not be staffed all the time. “It’s not surprising, but it is frustrating,” Mr Dietche said. Superintendant Todd said there was currently no need for the police station to be staffed 24/7 as there were not enough resources, especially considering the crime rate has reduced in the area.

Peninsula gears up for Anzac Day services

No 24/7 police for port „„ By Caitlin Miles LYTTELTON WON’T be getting a 24/7 service – even though numerous police stations across the country will be staffed around the clock over the next five years. Police numbers will be boosted by 20 per cent across the country with an additional 1125 police staff hired. Lyttelton Police Station is currently staffed 9am-5pm but officers patrol and have support from Christchurch when the station is closed. There are currently six officers at Lyttelton. It will not become 24/7 or have officers added – which was disappointPeter ing news for Newsome residents. At a recent meeting between police and members of the community, Canterbury metro commander Superintendent Lane Todd said there is no case for Lyttelton to be staffed 24/7 but officers from Christchurch will still be available to answer the needs of the community. It was not the news former detective Peter Newsome wanted

Acting Inspector Paul Reeves said from 2015 to 2016 crime in the area had dropped eight per cent, with 122 crimes reported last year, down from the 133 reported the year before. But Mr Dietche said he still wants more police and to have the station open constantly so the community didn’t have to rely on officers coming from the city to answer calls for help. “It’s always my biggest fear that something really bad will happen to a person, or the community, before the police make themselves more available,” Mr Dietche said.

IT’S A week until Anzac Day and commemoration plans are under way across the peninsula to remember those who died in war. Every year members of the community and organisations prepare to march and attend various commemorations as a mark of respect. Numerous roads will also be closed to allow for parades and marches, with services taking place throughout the peninsula next Wednesday. Martindales Rd and Flavell St in Heathcote will be closed from 5.30am-7am for a dawn parade, followed by a service at the corner of Martindales and Bridle Path Rds at 6.15am. Western Valley Rd in Little River will be closed from 9am10.30am for a parade which will end at the war memorial gates where a wreath will be laid to honour those who never returned. A service will be held in the community hall at 9.30am followed by morning tea at the community centre. A Lyttelton RSA service will be held from 9.45am at the corner of

London and Oxford Sts. The city council has approved the closure of London St from 9.45am-11am for the parade. In Sumner those taking part in the parade should meet at the corner of Stoke St and the Esplanade at 10.40am with the parade scheduled to start at 10.50am followed by a service at the war memorial by the Beach Bar at 11am. Wakefield Ave, Mariner St and the Esplanade will be closed from 10.50am-12.30am. The Akaroa RSA Service will include a parade which will start from the Akaroa Volunteer Fire Station at 49 Beach Rd at 11am followed by a service at the war memorial at 11.30am. Commemorations will be held at the newly-reopened Diamond Harbour Community Centre War Memorial Hall following a parade starting from the community store at 10.30am. •Crosses special to parade leader, p5 •Remembering the fallen, p7 •Dairy of Gallipoli surgeon, p10, 11 •Anzac Day services across district, p16

Museum one step closer SAFETY: This small pedestrian island may be moved further along Martindales Rd. ​

Plan to move pedestrian island HOPEFUL: Lyttelton Historical Museum Society chairman Peter Rough overlooks the London St site where he hopes the museum will be built.

demolished after it was badly damaged in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. The society has already chosen architects Warren and Mahoney to design a new museum building which could have three or four levels. Mr Rough hopes a final decision on the land will be made soon as the goal is to have a new museum ready for opening in 2019. It has $600,000 for the project

but estimates it will need to raise another $5.3 million to construct the building and help with operational costs. More than 8500 museum items have been catalogued and are currently in storage at the New Zealand Air Force Museum including significant artefacts from maritime, military and naval history. The society expects more than 10,000 people a year would visit a new museum.

„„ By Caitlin Miles A PEDESTRIAN island is likely to be moved to a different location in Martindales Rd due to safety fears. The request came from Heathcote Valley School and concerned residents due to concern pupils weren’t able to cross the road, in Heathcote Valley, safely. There is currently a crossing at the roundabout on the intersection of Martindales and Port Hills Rds, but a report from city council staff said it provides “very limited vision” for those using it. This led to the request to have a new crossing constructed further along Martindales Rd, away from the roundabout. The idea to install a pedestrian

island was supported by the former Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board. Public consultation was meant to be carried out from February 23 but a mix-up meant some papers were delivered a week early. The city council kept consultation open until March 16 to give people a fair chance to supply their feedback on the proposal. The city council only received feedback from one organisation and three residents, none opposing the idea. The Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board is expected to make a decision on approving the new site at today’s meeting. If approved it is expected to cost $45,000.

AFTER SIX years without a home, the Lyttelton Historical Museum will be one step closer to rebuilding – if the public support the proposed site. The city council has given initial approval to gift land at 33-35 London St to the society for the museum rebuild. It will now go out for public consultation and if the community approve the location, the city council will give the museum the final sign-off to build. The city council has backed the proposal because it believes it would bring significant cultural benefits to the people of Lyttelton and provide a unique tourist attraction. Lyttelton Historical Museum Society chairman Peter Rough is delighted that progress is being made towards rebuilding the museum. The society had put a request to Banks Peninsula Community Board for the London St site because it believed it was “ideal” for a new museum. The society believed placing it at the middle of the community would create a hub with other community facilities nearby, such as the Lyttelton Library and Albion Square.

Crosses special to parade leader „„ By Bridget Rutherford BILL MITCHELL imagines the 3200 inscribed white crosses that line Cranmer Square as small bodies of Cantabrians killed in World War 1. The 104-year-old will lead the Anzac Day parade in a Jeep on April 25, to remember those who lost their lives. As part of the commemorations, the crosses were laid out last week, which represent the men and women who died in the first three years of the war. They are part of the four-yearlong Regional Fields of Remembrance Project, where the number of crosses placed there each year correlates to the number of those killed at that point in the war. Mr Mitchell lost an uncle in World War 1, and he served in the Air Force as a ground engineer in the Pacific during World War 2. He said during World War 1 and World War 2, “life was cheap”. He lost many “mates” while he served in World War 2, and afterwards. Next year, more crosses will be laid out on the square, as it will represent the final year of World War 1.

A special ceremony will be held in Auckland on Armistice Day, where every cross in the country will be placed on display to mark the end of the war. Christchurch RSA president Pete Dawson said the crosses were a poignant reminder of how many men and women were killed. “New Zealand had a population of one million people in 1915 and of that, 10 per cent went to fight in World War 1. Of that 10 per cent, 18 per cent did not return home.” Anzac Day dawn service MC Paul O’Connor MBE, said the crosses showed the scale of what really happened during World War 1, and in each year it went on for. The dawn service will be held at Cranmer Square on April 25 from 6am. Lieutenant Colonel Sir Walter Hugh Malcolm Ross GCVO OBE DL will be a special guest. He is the Lord Prior – the third most senior individual within the Order of St John, under the Sovereign Head the Queen, and the Grand Prior. Each year, more than 15,000 people attended the service. •Remembering the fallen,p7,8

News Remembering the lives of fallen soldiers SERVICE: Seventeen World War 1 soldiers with links to Heathcote Valley died overseas protecting their country in World War 1. The Linwood Library is holding an exhibition to display them as people, rather than as names on a memorial.

Rifleman Frank Adamson was living with his parents at 479 Hereford St in Linwood and studying law at Canterbury College at the time he enlisted. He was wounded in the field in France in July, 1916. He survived but was later killed in action on October 31, 1918, at the age of 25.

„„ By Noah Graham REMEMBERING soldiers as people, rather than just names on a memorial, is the goal of a library exhibition. The Linwood Library is holding an exhibition this month to display the lives, personalities and achievements of 17 soldiers with links to Heathcote Valley who died in World War 1. Community learning librarian Andrea Lord said the exhibition aimed to take the names of the soldiers, which are inscribed on the Heathcote War Memorial, and add a description of who the soldiers were along with a photograph. She said as part of the

Government’s WW100 programme, groups across the country are doing various activities to help remember those who fought in World War 1. She said starting out with just the soldiers’ names, service number and the knowledge they had lived in Heathcote, library staff compiled information about who they were, what they had done, where they had died and how. She said the soldiers in the exhibition died in Gallipoli, France and Palestine and it was a shame their whole lives had been reduced to a few words on a memorial. “All of the staff found researching the soldiers really meaningful and they were all

pleased they had done it.” She said library staff would walk past where the soldiers had lived or places they had known and could not help but think of those places in a different way. Mrs Lord said staff had spent months trawling through library records and old newspapers, piecing together the soldiers’ lives. She said the reaction from people viewing the exhibition had been really interesting. “People have been stopping to read about every single soldier. “One lady had said how sad it was and she found it quite moving.” The exhibition will run at the Linwood Library in the Eastgate Shopping Centre until April 30.

Rifleman Richard Burnell attended Heathcote Valley District School and Lyttelton District High School. After he left school, he joined the Railways Department. He enlisted in the army on May 31, 1915, as a rifleman in the 2nd Battalion. On September 24, 1916 he was killed in action in the field at Somme, Northern France, aged 25. He is remembered with Honour at the Caterpillar (New Zealand) Memorial in Longueval, Somme.

Rifleman James Cogle was born on April 11, 1892, and was raised in Lyttelton. He was a fireman with the New Zealand Railways. He was killed in action on September 15, 1916, and served alongside his brother, Robert, who also served and died during the war.

Gunner Walter Parker was born in Ashburton on April 15, 1891. He was 24 and a clerk for New Zealand Railways when he first enlisted. He lived at 77 Port Hills Road, Heathcote, at the time. Parker was killed in action on July 22, 1916, in the Battle of the Somme and was buried at the Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery in Armentieres, France.

Private Hector Rhind grew up in Reserve Tce in Lyttelton and lived at 117 Richardson St in Opawa as a cycle mechanic working for Bell Bros. He died on September 16, 1916, and was 23-yearsold at the time. •More profiles, page 8

Private Michael Ian Adamson was born on June 1, 1895, in Sumner. He was one of six children born to Reverend Henry Adamson and Marianne Burke Adamson. He was serving in the North Canterbury and Westland Regiment Territorial Forces when he enlisted with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force on April 19, 1915. On March 27, 1918, he was 22 when he was seriously wounded with a gunshot wound to the head and on March 30 at 12.25pm, he died of his wounds. He had a bout of bad luck in his service and had spent more time recovering from injuries and illness than he spent in military action. John Wetherall was born in Prebbleton, on May 24, 1886. His family lived at 26 Bridle Path Rd in Heathcote Valley and he was a malster at the Canterbury Seed Company, responsible for taking cereals and making malt out of the grain to be used to create beer. In the Battle of Ayun Kara in Palestine, on November 14, 1917, he was killed in action and buried in Palestine. His grave can be found in the Ramleh War Cemetery. Lieutenant Lestock Henry Reid was born on November 7, 1885, and grew up in Ardlui, Rakaia. Reid attended Heathcote Valley District School before he went to Christchurch Boys’ High School. He was 28 and worked as a marine engineer in the Mediterranean when war broke out. He was 30 when he died in action during the Battle of the Somme on May 20, 1916. He is buried in the Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery, Armentieres, France.

Sergeant Keith Munro Weir attended Heathcote Valley School and was a clerk at the Canterbury Seed Company in Christchurch. On August 23, 1915, he enlisted. He was wounded in action on April 23, 1918, and died the following day in France when he was 21-years-old.

REMEMBERED: The names of the 17 soldiers who died during service in World War 1, and who are highlighted in the Linwood Library exhibition, can be found on the Heathcote War Memorial. •Dairy of Gallipoli surgeon, p10,11

News Diary of Gallipoli surgeon brought

SERVICE: Dr Percival Fenwick during the Boer War in 1900. ​ “A more hellish Sunday one could not conceive. “Total to date 5000 (approximately) casualties, about three men per yard of ground gained.”

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart “IT SEEMED impossible for men to live under the hail of bullets” – that was how Christchurch surgeon Lieutenant-Colonel Percival Fenwick described his experience at Gallipoli. He was one of the first New Zealanders ashore at Anzac Cove on April 25, 1915, and kept a diary of the horrifying things he saw there. Parts of his diary have now been used in a new project, Ngā Tapuwae First World War Trails, which tells stories from battlefields where New Zealanders fought. It was designed as a guide for people visiting the battlefields in person for Anzac commemorations, but can also be listened to while exploring the scenes online. Lt Col Fenwick’s granddaughter, Philippa Horn (right), said his diary was only discovered after his death. “He very seldom spoke about those things. The only thing

PROJECT: Dr Fenwick’s diary is being used to tell stories of battlefields where New Zealanders fought. He is seen here in 1945 (left) and cutting the hair of a World War 1 soldier in Gallipoli.

he ever said, that I remember, was that he was ashamed to come out of Gallipoli alive,” she said. He was sent home after two months at the front because he developed paratyphoid, but he wrote several letters to the army in protest, asking to be sent back, she said. When World War 2 broke out, then aged 69, he wrote letters

again asking to be allowed to serve, but was told he was too old. Mrs Horn said he had served in the Boer War for three years as a younger man, and was strongly driven to try to help and heal as many as he could on the battlefield. In peacetime he worked as a surgeon for many years in Christchurch, where he met his

wife, Nona Wright, a nurse at Bottle Lake Hospital. Mrs Horn said he was “everything a grandfather should have been”. “He had a lovely sense of humour and was always so pleased to see us,” she said. His story can be found at www.ngatapuwae.nz in the Holding the Line section of the Gallipoli Trail.

Protect yourself for up to 3 months from cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of colds & flu. Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the prevention of secondary bacterial infections associated with cold and flu. Buccaline provides active immunisation against bacterial colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are often caused by bacterial infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are frequently made worse by an additional bacterial infections and take longer to recover from. Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly improves resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking Buccaline at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the middle of the cold season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with some liquid one-hour before breakfast or lunch.

Ask your pharmacist if Buccaline is right for you. Note: Buccaline is not intended as an alternative to influenza vaccination. Pharmacist-Only medicine. Always read the label and use as directed.

to life The Gallipoli landing: “We were frightfully hampered by our kit – overcoat, revolver, glasses, map case, haversack, three days rations, firewood, Red Cross satchel, water bottle – like elephants. It was a certainty that we would drown if we got stuck. “After waiting, a steam picket boat came along in charge of a very fat rosy midshipman. He took a string of boats in tow and we were off. Our boat grounded about 50 feet from the shore and we all hopped out. Of course, I fell into a hole up to my neck. I could hardly struggle ashore and when I did the first thing I saw was Beck sitting on a stone, roaring with laughter at us. Bill Beck was the first New Zealander of Godley’s force to get on to Gallipoli.” On treating the wounded: “Several dead men were lying on the beach . . . every minute the numbers increased and, as in addition fresh troops came ashore with mules and ammunition, the chaos became appalling . . . this state

of things lasted all day. It seemed impossible for men to live under the hail of bullets. Capt Craig dressed over 100 cases under fire. One of his assistants had his finger shot off while helping him. Men were constantly hit in our station and their pluck and devotion in continuing their work under these galling conditions is hopelessly above praise. “At midnight I got four big horse boats, which held 12 stretchers on the bottom and I packed in less severe cases along the sides, sitting, kneeling, lying – anyhow, about 120 all told. I got these four off at last at 1.30, and lay down in the rain at the side of the hill. I certainly was very astonished that I was alive. A more hellish Sunday one

could not conceive.” “Total to date 5000 (approximately) casualties, about three men per yard of ground gained.” On burying the dead: “The most ghastly day. This morning I was ordered to act as the [delineating] officer for the burial of the dead . . . raining heavily. I got a loan of a dead or missing man’s overcoat and was all right. “We were met by some Turkish officers who arrived on horseback followed by 50 very fine looking Turks, carrying Red Crescent and white flags. One of the officers was a German doctor. We were introduced by our interpreters and moved up the hillside in two long lines. Every 100 yards or so we stationed a man with a white

flag, and opposite to him the Turks posted one of their men. We clambered through dripping bushes, with beautiful poppies and flowers. “Coming over the crest of the hill, I found the first New Zealander, lying on his face. Poor lad! A few yards climb brought us on a plateau, and a most awful sight was here. The Turkish dead lay so thick that it was almost impossible to pass without treading on the bodies. The awful destructive power of high explosive was very evident. Huge holes surrounded by circles of corpses, blown to pieces. One shell had fallen and set fire to a bush, as a dead man lay charred to the bone. Everywhere on looked lay dead, swollen, black, hideous, and overall a nauseating stench that nearly made

one vomit. “Behind us for at least two miles, we could see our burial parties working furiously. In some cases the dead actually formed part of the trench wall. It was a terrible sight to see arms and legs sticking out of the sand, underneath the sandbags . . . I left, feeling deadly ill. “I only saw about 10 of ours but, at a very modest estimate, I saw 2000 dead Turks. The Turkish officers were charming. The Germans were rude and dictatorial and accused us of digging trenches. I lost my temper (and my German) and told him the corpses were so decomposed they could not be lifted and our men were merely digging pits to put the awful things into. The Turkish medico was extremely nice. We exchanged cigarettes and I said to him I hoped that after the war we should smoke a cigarette.’’ “If this is war, I trust NZ will never be fool enough to forget that to avoid war one most [must] be too strong to invite war.” •Anzac Day Services, p14

Historic Bridal Path shelter restoration completed

A HISTORIC shelter honouring 19th-century pioneering woman has been restored. The shelter at the top of the Bridle Path was badly damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake and has been restored over the last couple of months. The shelter was built using volcanic stone and is a well-known landmark on the Bridle Path – the route used by the first settlers to cross the Port Hills from Lyttelton to the fledgling settlement of Christchurch. The shelter bears the inscription They Passed This Way and was built to commemorate the courage and hard work of the women who were among the early settlers. City council heritage programme manager Richie Moyle said it is good to be able to restore the shelter, which works as a resting spot for many making their way along the Bridle Path. “We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to restore this historic landmark and that it can once again provides

RESTORED: The shelter sits on the Bridle Path and gives views over Lyttelton Harbour and the Canterbury Plains.

a resting point for those making the trip over the Bridle Path,’’ Mr Moyle said. He said the restoration was important for the history of the area. “It’s a wonderful spot to sit and imagine what it was like for the pioneers who arrived here and to reflect on how things have changed,” he said. However, there is still one item in the historic shelter awaiting restoration – a memorial plaque depicting the pioneer women and their children arriving in the district.

ced n a l a B ure Press on lati i t n e V

The bronze plaque carries the words: “On this spot the pioneer women of Canterbury and their children rested after their climb from the Port of Lyttelton and gazed with awe but courage upon the hills and plains of Canterbury where they were to make their home.” Mr Moyle said: “Sadly the decorative middle section of the plaque has been stolen, but we are having it re-cast and hope to have it back in place within a few months. It will be the final piece in the jigsaw.”​

This is where an experienced and knowledgeable real estate professional can assist you in the sale of your property. Knowing the local market around your property is essential when you need to get your property to stand out above the rest.

850 Ray White members joined together for the national conference held in Auckland last week. The conference itself was headlined by keynote speakers including Dr Libby Weaver, Willie Apiata VC, and Steve Hansen.

The staff here enjoyed all the speakers, but came back absolutely buzzing after hearing Willie Apiata VC - who enthralled the audience with his captivating insights into his life when he was part of the New Zealand Special Air Services in Afghanistan. He spoke of his time overseas and the homecoming ceremony held in his home town of Te Kaha. He went on to talk about the donation of the Victoria Cross medal to the NZSAS Trust so the medal would be protected for future generations. We want to offer huge congratulations to Matt Clayton and Paula Standeven who both received Premier Sales awards for 2016, and Mark Gardner, Daisy Foldesi and Jan Edlin who received Executive Sales awards for 2016.

Your Local Views Help get rid of predators

Pirate’s Corner

Labour MP Ruth Dyson writes about battling pests and the Predator Free Port Hills movement The combination of autumn temperatures, heavy rain and the empty red zone land has meant that many in the Port Hills are being inundated by possums and rats. It’s not great to be woken during the night by the hissing and spitting (let alone the fighting) of possums and the damage they are doing to our fauna and flora is horrific.  I have been contacted by a number of people who need help to battle these pests.  So what can we do? At the end of last year, the Summit Road Society launched a vision of a predator free Port Hills. It is a great aspiration. I back this vision, but it needs some help to make it a reality. There are a few volunteer co-ordinators in suburbs around the Port Hills, but they need to link in with other people to complete the whole picture. Perhaps you have spare money and no time so you

Time to sort out winter maintenance „„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttelton HOPEFULLY, YOU all enjoyed the Easter break and had an opportunity to recharge. As our boating season is coming to a close – with the exception of you hardy ones out there – it is now a good time to think about what maintenance you need to do on your boat; be it a trailer-sailer, yacht, powerboat or jet ski. All vessels have different characteristics and the maintenance required will vary. I strongly suggest that you follow the manufacturer’s specifications for service and repair, this way you know things will be right. It’s up to you whether you carry out the work yourself, if you are competent. If you’re more into

boating than the maintenance side of things, get one of Canterbury’s very capable boat shops to do the service or repair work that you may have been putting off over the busy summer period. For those of you who tie your vessels up to moorings – make sure you check the top rope for wear or chafing. This can be one of the causes of the boat separating from the mooring. This is a common issue that can cause a lot of damage to your own boat as well as other boats if yours happens to be adrift. So remember, keep your maintenance up to scratch and save yourself a lot of pain and heartache. Be safe out there.

School’s special visitor PUPILS AT Our Lady Star of the Sea School had a special visit for Easter. The new entrant pupils dressed up as little bunnies, but it was the surprise visit from the Easter Bunny that really excited the children. The bunny even took over from principal John Kane for a while.

Two codes for Sumner coach „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER RUGBY coach Martin Field-Dodgson will put a new spin on code-hopping when he starts in a role at Mainland Football later this month. Field-Dodgson, 39, has a strong background in rugby, which includes a number of roles in development and coaching at the top level in Europe. He will soon transfer those skills to football when he starts as the community football manager for Mainland Football. He will still play a big part in rugby, in his first season coaching the Sumner division one side. “Some people have said you’re going to join the enemy but in the modern day and age the real enemy is doing nothing and computer games,” said FieldDodgson. “The real driver for me is that kids are doing something, that’s the main thing.” In terms of football this will be his first true role in the sport. “I had a run around for the Cashmere Wanderer’s (now Cashmere Technical) as an eight or nine-year-old, that’s the extent of my football prowess,” said Field-Dodgson. Although he may not hold an extensive background in football, Mainland Football chief executive Julian Bowden believes the

organisation is getting someone with a huge skill set. “His varied background shows a great knowledge of club systems and structures so he was a standout for us,” said Bowden. “The fact he’s actually come

from another code I find quite exciting because I think there is a whole lot we can learn from each other.” A connection between Mainland Football and Sumner Rugby Club isn’t something new.

Bowden spent two seasons playing for the top Sumner side in the late 90s. Former All White Ben Sigmund also played on the wing for Sumner during a break from football. Field-Dodgson returned to

Pro12 is a European competition, contested by the top Italian, Irish, Welsh and Scottish teams. In previous years, All Blacks such as John Kirwan and Craig Green have played for the club. “It was an incredible experience in terms of learning,” said Field-Dodgson. He has held a number of development roles before his time in Italy. After finishing physical education studies at University of Otago he spent a number of years working with the Queensland Rugby Union. Field-Dodgson begins the new role on April 26.

Sumner will be warmed up for University clash „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER WILL celebrate their first home game of the season by running to St Leonards Square just before kick-off. The team will warm-up near Van Asch Deaf Education Centre before running to their home ground ahead of their clash against University on Saturday at 2.45pm. “The first home game is always a special one for the community and the club. We’re hoping to get a big crowd down there, especially if it’s good weather,” said Sumner captain Lawrence Babe. They will hope to get their first win of the season at St Leonards after being dealt a difficult trio of fixtures to start the year. Sumner began the season with three away losses to Christchurch (14-20), Sydenham (15-39) and Lincoln University (9-29). The upcoming home match against University won’t be any easier. The visitors have won their last two matches and defeated Sumner 28-38 in the pre-season. Meanwhile, Sumner’s match against Lincoln University was set to be played on Saturday. However, both teams agreed to

move the game to Wednesday last week so they could have an extended Easter break. Played in miserable conditions, Sumner took an early 3-0 lead before Lincoln

“We had a training at Taylors Mistake. We ran up to Godley Head and did some intervals on the zig-zag there to keep the fitness levels ticking over,” said Babe.

FERRYMEAD BAYS have secured their biggest win of the season with a 3-1 victory over Universities on Monday. Bays were set to begin the long weekend with an away trip to Nelson Suburbs on Good Friday. However, heavy rain caused the match to be postponed. The extra rest clearly worked in their favour come Monday. Stu Kelly opened the scoring late in the first half to give Bays a 1-0 advantage at half-time. Universities’ Rodrigo Balcazar levelled the score in the 65th minute before Nikolai Molijn scored against his former teammates to put Bays back in front. The match was wrapped up five minutes before the final whistle when current golden boot-holder Andy Tuckey scored. After six rounds of the Mainland Premier League, Bays are in third place on 12 points, three behind competition leaders Coastal Spirit. However, they have a game in hand due to the postponed match. Bays play bottom-of-the-table Western at English Park on Saturday.

Driven Sharp price for Subaru Impreza „„ By Ross Kiddie

• Price – Subaru Impreza, $29,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4460mm; width, 1775mm; height, 1480mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1995cc, 115kW, 196Nm, continuously variable automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.3sec • Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

THIRTEEN YEARS ago I guided an acquaintance into a new car, it was a Subaru Impreza and it was a car which was priced at $25,000 with four-wheel-drive and 2-litre engine. My friend still has that car and it has now travelled fault-free over 200,000km, scheduled maintenance has been the only service cost. I remember writing at the time how much of a bargain that car was, and if finances at the time had allowed, I may well have purchased an Impreza as well. Well, nothing has changed, I still can’t afford a new car and now Subaru has another new Impreza available at a budget price. For just $5000 more than the new price in 2004, the new-generation model represents amazing value, and it is stacked with value features, items which you wouldn’t ordinarily expect in a budget car. The new generation model gets Eye-sight driver assist technology, a camera-based system which is linked to adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, precollision assist and pedestrian avoidance. Other features for comfort and convenience include automatic stop-start as a fuel saving measure, keyless entry and

SUBARU IMPREZA: Stacked with value features.

ignition, Apple Car Play and Android Auto capability, along with the usual features modern cars include as a matter of course. The new Impreza still has the traditional 2-litre, flat-four (boxer) engine. It has been developed to a point where it is state-of-the-art in terms of power outputs, emission control and fuel efficiency. In terms of figures, the quad-camshaft unit is rated at 115kW and 196Nm, while a 6.6-litre per 100km/h (42mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average is claimed by Subaru. That works well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) figure showing on the comprehensive trip

computer, along with a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous figure cruising the 100km/h legal limit (engine speed 1600rpm). Drive is channelled to all four wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. Not only does the four-wheeldrive system alleviate the fear of grip loss on loose surfaces, there is a lot of natural grip supplied on the seal, the Impreza has handling ability which is unrealistic for this class of car. In the first instance, grip is supplied by 205/50 x 17in Bridgestone Turanaza tyres, and even though they aren’t Bridgestone’s sport specification rubber, the

tyres have prodigious grip. If you add in a flat and controlled body balance and drive channelled constantly through to all wheels, the handling balance is biased towards sporty. That comes without the springs and dampers being overly firmed, ride quality is still paramount to the Subaru way of manufacture. I took the test car on a loop that took in both sealed and unsealed surfaces and I’m pleased to report that for what would be deemed an everyday family sedan, the Impreza imparts a sporty handling sensation. Power is directed freely through the transmission. In this form the Impreza doesn’t get the turbocharging system of its WRX stablemates, but it is an honest, punchy engine. I’ve written many

times how much natural torque horizontally-opposed engines develop, and the Impreza’s naturally-aspirated unit is a honey. In my introduction I mentioned the high level of specification. Another useful feature are the steering wheel-mounted paddles which the driver can use to initiate ratio changes within the CVT system. There’s also a sequential system at the main gearshift lever itself, but as a driver you can be lured into a sporty sensation if you utilise the paddles. However, first and foremost, the Impreza caters for the family unit. While sedans are fast losing popularity, I’m still a bit of a fan and I’m quite smitten with Subaru product; together I’d be sold on the Impreza in this form. Subaru’s line-up isn’t extensive, but the company is far more than a global niche market player. All of the models offered here are functional and practical, each designed for a different role. The Impreza is there to tempt as an entry-level car into the brand. You’d had better be quick, though, from what I’ve heard through industry sources the Impreza in this form is only available in limited numbers and is selling fast.
