Murdered woman

caught on camera

• By Andrew King

POLICE HAVE released the last

known photo of murder victim

Renee Duckmanton (above).

The image shows the 22-yearold

sex worker walking along

Peterborough St, not far from

the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground, shortly after 9pm

on Sunday, May 14.

She was wearing sneakers, a

white top and a dark-coloured

jacket.

Ms Duckmanton’s badly

burnt body was found on

Main Rakaia Rd, near State

Highway 1, just north of

Rakaia, about 7.40pm the following

day.

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney said yesterday it is believed

Ms Duckmanton arrived

in the area near the playground

shortly after 8.30pm.

“At approximately 9pm, Renee

walked across Manchester

St and into Peterborough St,”

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney said.

Police have released little information

about the progress in

finding Ms Duckmanton’s killer

or killers.

Said Detective Inspector

Sweeney: “What I have released

today is the only detail I can

release at present. The lack of

information (released) is by no

means unusual. It’s standard

practice.”

He would not say if police

were following any strong leads.

Ms Duckmanton’s funeral was

held on Monday at Bell, Lamb

and Trotter on Ferry Rd and

cousin, Amy McGrath, said about

200 family and friends came

together to celebrate her life.

“She never said a bad word

about anyone. We are all still

upset and broken about what

has happened. Her funeral was

just perfect,” she said.

CHRISTCHURCH residents

may need to pay a separate

charge for their water use because

of dwindling water supplies.

A study has been completed on

why Christchurch’s streams are

drying up, and what can be done

about it.

It will be discussed by the

Christchurch West Melton Zone

Committee tonight.

In March, the water level in the

aquifers feeding the city was the

lowest on record.

At the moment the cost of

providing water is paid through

rates. But there is no charge on the

amount of water residents use.

City councillor and committee

member Pauline Cotter said water

metering and charges was one

of the options which would be up

for discussion tonight.

She said charging for water had

dropped water use in Auckland

by about 20 per cent.

“Frankly we don’t value it unless

we have to pay for it,” she said.

In Christchurch, people use an

average of 357 litres of water per

person per day.

In Auckland, with water

charges, the average is 273 litres

of water per person per day.

City council spokesman John

Mackie said water was a finite

resource, so the option was always

present in the city council’s

thinking.

Public consultation would be

needed if charges for water use

were brought in.

“It has been shown in other

centres around New Zealand and

elsewhere, that volumetric billing

is a more equitable way to charge

for water, raises awareness of the

value of water, incentivises water

conservation measures, defers

capital demand on building

new infrastructure, and better

manages the demand for water

particularly in peak times.”

JUST WHEN we finally thought

the earthquake recovery was

cranking up, another problem

is about to befall the city –

wayward roots.

The experts say between five

and seven years after a quake,

tree roots start to wind their way

into cracked underground pipes,

blocking them and causing

problems.

We speak to the experts on

page 3 and find out how long

you’ve got to take some action to

get the pipes fixed or replaced.

On page 8, we talk to Kevin

Barry and find out what he saw

in Joseph Parker, the big punching,

durable heavyweight boxer

heading towards a world title

fight.

Parker fights in Christchurch

in July on the way to the title.

Still on the sporting theme,

there’s a new elite in the rugby

ranks – players who are just past

their prime, or those who can’t

quite make or hold a place in the

All Blacks (page 32).

By world standards they are

still tip-top players and overseas

clubs are paying big bucks for

them.

Tree roots new threat to

quake-cracked pipes

HOMEOWNERS MAY be in

for more earthquake-related

pain with tree roots the culprit

this time.

The roots have found their way

into small cracks in earthquakedamaged

drainage pipes, blocking

them as they grow.

An EQC spokesman said the

problem had been expected to

crop up between five and seven

years following the earthquakes,

based on expert advice.

Homeowners have a “grace

period” until

December

31 when any

failure of lateral

pipes consistent

with earthquake

damage would

be treated as

such by EQC

with no further inspection.

However, claims made after

this time would face a higher

burden of proof that the damage

was earthquake-related.

G N Brewer Drainlayers Ltd

•From page 1

He said most businesses and

homes were already metered,

which would mean a charging

system would be simpler to put

in place.

Water charges in Christchurch

have been considered in

the past, including in 2008 as

part of the city council water

strategy, and last year in the

long term planning process.

At the time a quota system

was discussed, which would

said now that tree roots had had

time to grow into the drains, the

problem was becoming more

evident.

“It only takes a tiny little fibre

getting in, it doesn’t take a huge

amount. Once that is in it just

feeds on the nutrients and goes

berserk and you can’t really stop

it without repairing the pipe.”

The company had two or three

drainage crews working on

repairing the problem each day

and was about six weeks behind

on camera inspections due to

mean people who used a lot of

water would be charged extra

while people who saved water

might get a rebate.

But Christchurch Budget

Service chairman Don Johnson

said he was sceptical about

whether that would happen.

“Someone’s going to be faced

with a rise because of the administration

costs involved, so

as a system it is always going to

cost more, not less.”

He said a lot of families in

the volume of requests coming

in – about 15 to 20 a day.

“Often the drains are under a

driveway and we are getting a lot

now where the driveways have

been replaced but then the roots

are getting in [to the drains]

and we are having to take up the

driveway that has already been

replaced.”

The problem is also hitting the

city council’s wastewater pipes. Infiltration

by tree roots had always

been a problem for the network

but head of three waters and waste

Christchurch couldn’t afford

even $5 a week extra.

Christchurch’s low groundwater

levels have been made worse

by the lower rainfall over winter,

which is when the ground

becomes saturated and the most

water can seep into the aquifers.

But Cr Cotter said even in

years when there was a lot

of rainfall the problem was

expected to get worse, because

of the changing climate and the

spread of the city.

John Mackie said it had been

made worse by the earthquakes

creating more cracks.

The city council was now

putting more emphasis on root

control and monitoring, which it

had to fund itself.

The cost of root control this

year is around $125,000 and

this is likely to increase in the

near future as other methods

of control are considered such

as chemical treatment or root

foaming,” Mr Mackie said.

MEMORIAL RIDE

A memorial motor-cycle ride will

be held this Sunday to mark 30

years since the mysterious death

of 33-year-old Christchurch

jeweller and keen motorcyclist

Brian Edgington. Mr Edgington’s

body was found beside his crashed

car down a bank off the road in

Allandale, but his family did not

know why he was in the area or

what had happened. The ride will

be held from 11am on Sunday,

leaving from the Sign of the Kiwi.

SMOKEFREE DINING

About 20 restaurants and cafes

across the city are set to become

completely smokefree next

summer, as part of a smokefree

outdoor dining pilot. The pilot

will run for six months from

November, and is designed to test

whether becoming smokefree

will have a positive or negative

effect on business. It is run by the

Cancer Society and Community

and Public Health, and it is set to

be put to a city council committee

next week to ask for its support.

LOWER SPEED WANTED

Governors Bay residents have

come up with measures to try

and help police clamp down

on boy racer issues in the area.

Community representatives

met on Monday to discuss the

progress that has been made on

the problem over the past year.

Resident Rosie Belton said the

group decided it wanted to lower

the speed limit on Dyers Pass Rd

from 100km/h down to 70km/h.

She said the road was too windy

to drive at 100km/h.

HOTEL ROOM SHORTFALL

The squeeze on accommodation

in tourist hotspots is getting

tighter, causing critical

constraints in some centres

according to latest research.

It focused on Christchurch,

Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington

if demand and supply estimates

are borne out, the shortfall in new

hotel rooms is expected to be up

Rich-lister steps back from role in investment firm

• By Gabrielle Stuart

HIGH PROFILE businessman

Humphry Rolleston is stepping

back from investment firm

Murray & Co, which announced

last week it had sold its wealth

management arm.

The business was sold to First

NZ Capital, which helped to

set it up in 2008 and has been a

shareholder since.

Mr Rolleston is on the

National Business Review richlist,

with his investment wealth

valued at $70 million.

As part of the deal, Mr

Rolleston and fellow directors

Rob Campbell and Bill Trotter

have stepped down, although Mr

Rolleston is still a director of a

subsidiary company.

Mr Rolleston, Mr Campbell

and First NZ Capital all had

shares in the business, which

they have sold to Murray &

Co managing director Justin

Murray’s family interests as part

of the deal.

Mr Murray said the two businesses

had already been working

very closely together for a number

of years.

“All that really changes is the

brand. There will be no redundancies,

and everyone stays in

the same office.”

He said the changes were no

reflection on Mr Rolleston or the

other directors, who he said had

done some great work within the

company.

He said it was also no reflection

on the finances of the

company, which he said was in a

strong position.

But he said the wealth management

side of the business was

quite different to the investment

banking side, and the clients they

worked with were also different.

The company wanted to focus

on expanding its investment

banking arm, he said.

The fact we have agreed to sell

to First NZ Capital is because we

have a strong relationship and

confidence in them. It had to be

the best decision for our clients,”

he said.

​Illegal guns seized by task force

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE POLICE have seized 45

illegal guns in Christchurch

since an offender task force was

set up in February.

District commander superintendent

John Price said local

police were actively targeting

criminals who had illegal guns

through its intelligence informed

policing strategy.

That lines up with a Government

investigation which is

underway into how widespread

illegal gun use is, and how

criminals get hold of them.

Gang researcher and sociologist

Jarrod Gilbert believed he

believes all local gangs would

have some access to guns, but

how many was almost impossible

to estimate.

“In the underworld, if you’re a

drug dealer, for example, you’re

always at risk of being ripped off

and that being taken from you.

A stronger force in the underworld

will take from a smaller

force, and obviously a firearm is

an equalizer there. So there are

logical reasons for them to have

firearms.”

As anyone with gang connections

is banned from owning

them legally, that means they

had to use other methods, he

said.

Despite rules around the safe

Gun crime:

storage of guns, they are regularly

stolen in burglaries.

About 34,500 Cantabrians

have firearms licenses, according

to the last count.

MediaWorks Story journalist

Heather du Plessis-Allan

sparked debate over the issue

in October, when she managed

to buy a rifle online by forging

paperwork and pretending to be

a police officer.

But Gun City owner David

Tipple said doing that required

putting down a real address.

“Criminals don’t put their

name and address down when

they want to steal a gun. There’s

totally enough protection, it

would only be an idiotic, attention

seeker who would try this

on.”

He said New Zealand had a

very low rate of gun crime, so

the investigation was a waste of

police time.

He believed the current laws

were enough to keep guns out of

the wrong hands.

The 1983 Arms Act does very

good job. It forced people into

securing their firearms and that

significantly reduced both firearms

theft and firearms falling

into the hands of criminals.”

But Dr Gilbert believed more

could be done.

He said the idea of registering

all firearms, like the way

cars were registered, had been

rubbished as a “bureaucratic

nightmare” in the past.

But he believed technology

meant a register could be much

simpler and more feasible.

That would give the police

more idea of how many guns

were in use and where illegal

guns came from.

Public submissions on the Parliamentary

inquiry into illegal

gun possession are open until

June 8.

Bashed

woman lucky

to be alive

• By Andrew King

POLICE SAY a woman is lucky

to be alive after a violent home

invasion.

The woman was allegedly

attacked with a piece of wood in

her Burnside house about 3am on

Friday morning.

Her young children were home

during the brutal assault.

Police said a piece of wood

was used in the attack which has

left the victim with “extensive

damage to her face and head”.

The victim managed to call

police herself after the attack.

The alleged attacker Lealofi

Setu, 39, was arrested at another

property two hours later.

He appeared in the district

court on May 20 charged with

two counts of contravening a

protection order, aggravated

burglary and wounding with

intent to cause grievous bodily

harm.

He was remanded in custody

until June 13.

Constable Natalie Deuchrass

said the attack was particularly

violent.

The woman is very lucky to be

alive,” she said.

Councils blow cold on quarry plans

• By Tom Doudney

A REPORT suggesting

Canterbury has plenty of

aggregate material for the near

future is a blow to quarries who

say they should be allowed to dig

deeper to help the rebuild.

The city council and Environment

Canterbury have both

recommended that the Canterbury

Aggregate Producers Group

resource consent application be

denied.

CPAG, a group of nine quarry

owners, want to be allowed to dig

deeper than the current threshold

of 1m above highest recorded

groundwater levels.

The applications, for quarries

in the Yaldhurst, McLeans Island

and Broadfield areas, attracted

614 submissions, almost all of

which were in opposition.

A resource consent hearing will

be held on June 13.

Concerns over the potential

effects on groundwater were

central to both the city council

and ECan recommendations

but the city council’s report

also suggested the quarries had

“overstated” how much the application

being approved would

help the rebuild.

There is currently adequate

supply of aggregate within the

district to meet recovery needs

and forecast demand to 2030,”

the report stated.

“By this time it is envisaged that

additional out of zone quarries

will presumably have been consented

and new supply will come

online to meet this demand.”

In making their case that

more supply was needed, the

quarries had cited a 2009 report

by Richard English of Twelfth

Knight Consulting. However, the

city council said Mr English had

reviewed this assessment in 2015

and provided more up to date

figures.

The ECan report stated that

while the risks to public health

were very low it was possible that

quarrying activities could affect

the taste of

groundwater for

residents connected

to nearby

bores, making it

unpalatable.

“As suitable

mitigation

has not been

provided for by

the applicant we regard the risks

posed by the activity to the local

environment as unnecessarily

high.”

CHALLENGE:

The city

council and

Environment

Canterbury are

recommending

that

applications

for quarries

to be allowed

to dig deeper

be declined.

The quarries

include

Winstone

Aggregates’

Yaldhurst site.

CPAG spokesman Brian Warren

(left) said the quarries would

leave a full response to the points

raised in the reports to the hearing

as the issues were complex.

There is absolutely no question

that anything in the proposal

either exposes or digs into

groundwater, that’s one misconception

that has been bandied

around a fair bit,” he said.

Quake experiences needed

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

QUAKE claimants’ experiences

are being surveyed for a

comprehensive report, to help

insurers better respond to future

disasters.

The survey is the only independent

one being done and it is

essential research, Massey University

school

of economics

and finance

senior lecturer

Michael

Naylor (left)

said.

“We’ve had

interest from

all around the

world, with people asking what

we’ve learnt. Future generations

are going to want to learn from

our experiences as well. This is

important.”

The university is currently

compiling the data and calling

for Cantabrians to complete its

survey on quake claim experiences,

Dr Naylor said.

“We’ve already got more than

1000 responses, but we’d like

5000, 10,000 . . . the next major

disaster could well be Christchurch

and we want best practice

to be in place.”

DAMAGE: Liquefaction in Bexley after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The data collected from the

survey will be compiled into a

comprehensive report, and given

to the likes of quake insurers

and EQC.

While there has been a lot of

responses already, the university

needs a more diverse cross-section

of homeowners to respond,

Dr Naylor said.

“We haven’t got many from

the east side commenting,

mainly because most of them

were renters. We’re also after

commercial claims, a real wide

range of people.”

Dr Naylor also said that it is

often the “angry” claimants that

complete the survey.

The only ones you hear about

in the media are negative, and

the ones coming to us are

negative. But we’re also aware

that a number of people have

had good experiences.”

‘I set a path for amateurs’ – Barry

Heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker will fight

in Christchurch in July – the last step in a

bid at a world title shot in England. Patrick

McKendry looks at what makes his trainer

Kevin Barry tick

NEW ZEALAND businessman

Bob Jones first connected Kevin

Barry with Joseph Parker, but the

union was not straightforward.

Jones (left), a

boxing aficionado

and millionaire,

wanted Barry to

train Parker in

Las Vegas before

the 2012 Olympics

in London.

For one reason or another it

didn’t happen. Parker then lost

the final qualifier and never

made it to the United Kingdom.

Next it was Dean Lonergan

with an offer. “Kev”, the promoter

said to his friend on the phone

in Las Vegas, “I want to sign this

guy as a professional and I want

you and only you to train him”.

“Okay”, came the uncertain

reply.

“I thought, ‘I had never met

him, I had never met his family’,”

Barry told the New Zealand

Herald this week.

“I’ve got to sell this whole

concept to my wife – Dean wants

to send this guy over to me to

live with us. Dean said: ‘well if

it doesn’t work out then I’ll put

him up in a hotel’.

“I said: ‘look, you bring a

young Samoan boy from South

Auckland and you put him in a

hotel, it’s never going to work,

mate’. I said: ‘this whole thing,

if it works, I’m going to have to

invite him into my family’. Dean

said: ‘he’s a lovely guy’.”

That conversation happened

more than three years ago.

It took seven months for the

contract to go through. Now

56-year-old Barry and his

24-year-old fighter are standing

on the brink of a world title shot

and the bond between them

looks likely to endure for a long

time.

The victory over Carlos Takam

at Manukau’s Vodafone Events

Centre at the weekend was to

have made Parker the mandatory

challenger for the IBF world

heavyweight title.

But he now has to hurdle

Australian Solomon Haumono

in Christchurch in July.

Barry has been alongside

Parker for the past 14 of his 18

professional fights.

Another thing worming into

Barry’s mind as he considered

Lonergan’s offer was the fallout

from the David Tua affair.

Barry, who was very close to

Tua and trained him for 12 years,

had a massive falling out with

him over money following the

heavyweight’s world title defeat

to Lennox Lewis in 2000.

A legal battle ensued and the

emotional scars remain for both

men.

However, after watching

Parker train for the first time,

and meeting his parents Sala

and Dempsey, Barry’s fears were

eased. Later they would vanish.

“He was very much an amateur,

not using his whole body,

no leverage from his legs,” Barry

said. “I waited for about 15 minutes

and gave him a couple of

instructions.

“What I showed him he

adopted straight away. That was

massive. I thought: ‘this kid is

coachable. He wants to learn’.

“I met with his Mum and Dad

and they said people had come up

to them and said: ‘oh you shouldn’t

put Joseph with Kevin Barry, he’s

the wrong guy, look what happened

with Tua after 12 years’.

The family said: ‘we want

what’s best for our son. We want

him with you’.

“I made a pledge to them at

the time that I would become

his father figure and would treat

him like I would treat my own

children.”

The trip to Samoa earlier this

year for Parker’s fight against

American Jason Bergman,

helped Barry shut the door on

the Tua controversy.

“I had a lot of love in Samoa;

a lot of respect from the Prime

Minister and elders, and a lot of

thanks for what I’m doing with

Joseph.

They knew what I did with

David for 12 years, with Masalino

Masoe [a middleweight world

title], a lot of other Samoan

fighters.

MATES: Kevin Barry and

Joseph Parker. Left: Parker in

training.

There will always be a scar

there,” Barry said of the Tua

fallout. “When I agreed to come

back here and start training Joe,

it was very important for me that

I put that behind me.

“In a sense I had years prior

. . . but you spend 12 years with

a person and it leaves emotional

scars. The fact I was now spending

more time in New Zealand

that it was even more important

for me to completely close that

chapter. And I have.

“That name very rarely even

comes up now. No one even really

cares, it’s a long time ago now.”

Barry began boxing at eight

years old under the care of his father,

Kevin senior, who would go

on to become a Commonwealth

and Olympic Games coach and

an amateur boxing identity in

Christchurch.

His late father remains a huge

influence. Barry junior had his

first fight at nine years old and

once fought three times in one

night as a 10-year-old at a Canterbury

under-16 championship.

He won the first two and lost the

final to a 15-year-old.

He thrives on boxing and

everything to do with it. During

our interview, his phone

rings several times – promoter

Lonergan has been putting him

through media paces like never

before, he said – but he picks

up his train of thought without

hesitation.

As a light heavyweight, Barry

won all sorts of medals and

awards, and became synonymous

with Evander Holyfield at

the 1984 Olympics at Los Angeles

after the American was disqualified

for repeatedly hitting

after the break, a controversial

decision which helped Barry to a

silver medal.

“I set a path for the amateurs

coming behind me and I was

very proud of that,” he said. “I

boxed for 16 years and it gave me

a great start – it built the character

and person I am today.

The Holyfield fight at the

Olympics . . . I was bitter at the

time because I was a proud guy

and ended up winning my fourth

fight there by disqualification. I

was coming second in the fight.

But I had never been off my feet in

16 years and he was never going to

get me off my feet even though he

knocked everyone else out. So he

hit me with a cheap shot.

“As well as launching Holyfield’s

professional career, it

opened a lot of doors for me in

America back in the late 80s

when I started travelling there.”

During our interview, Barry

receives a call from an old mate

in Christchurch, plus Lonergan,

and the latter he finishes with

a stream of good-natured foulmouthed

insults. Parker visits

briefly, and leaves again after

being told he has a BBC phone

interview before training.

Once he leaves, Barry said:

“Joe is a gifted athlete, a very

talented young man who has so

much going for him. He’s special.

And I feel there is a piece of me

in Joe. It’s the coaching that

keeps me awake at night, thinking,

‘I’ve got to try this particular

combination’. I get up and write

things down. The coaching occupies

all my spare time.

Claim overworked nurses

are affecting patient care

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

SHORT-STAFFED hospital

wards are creating overworked

and stressed nurses, and it is

impacting on patient care.

That is the claim being

made by New Zealand Nurses

Organisation delegate and

registered neonatal nurse Cheryl

Hanham, who is calling on

the Government to invest at

least $35 million over what is

expected for the Canterbury

District Health Board in today’s

Budget.

“We are always over 100 per

cent capacity and working

overtime because of short

staffing . . .

we’re basically

in a deficit

before we even

start,” Ms

Hanham (left)

said.

She said

there are often

six babies and their families to

one nurse in the neonatal unit:

“And that’s far too much for one

nurse. Best practice guidelines

suggest four babies per nurse.

I worry about patient safety all

the time.”

Her call for more funding

comes after the Council of

Trade Unions and Association

of Salaried Medical Specialists

released a pre-Budget analysis,

saying the Government will

need to increase its health

budget by at least $691 million.

The extra funding is needed

to keep pace with population

growth, ageing and cost

increases, CTU economist Bill

Rosenberg said.

“Anything less than $691

million should be regarded as a

cut in funding and will result in

cuts to services.”

But Health Minister Jonathan

Coleman has rejected talk of

a cut, telling the New Zealand

Herald the health budget had

STRESSED: Canterbury nurses are under pressure with shortstaffed

hospital wards.

increased by $4 billion over the

past seven years to a record $15.9

billion.

“Look, the CTU have

been running those sorts of

arguments for a long time, so I

am not at all surprised. But the

problem is, they are not focusing

on results out of the health

system, they think the answer to

everything is more money.”

Ms Hanham says Dr Coleman

is out-of-touch with what it’s

really like inside hospitals.

“If we could get our staff

numbers up to full capacity we

would be able to do so much

more, but we just don’t have the

money. I’d like Dr Coleman

to come in and work with us,

do our shifts for a week. Then

he would see the stresses and

strains this system is under.”

She said in the last week she

has often had three texts in a

day from the hospital, asking for

nurses to take on extra shifts.

“I have worked overtime

this whole year, and that is my

choice, but really we’re only

keeping the hospitals going

by all the staff doing so much

extra.”

CDHB executive director

of nursing, Mary Gordon,

said ensuring staff well-being

and a clinically safe working

environment is paramount.

“Every day our people

continue to put in an

extraordinary effort to ensure

we collectively respond to the

needs of our community . . .

clinical leaders continuously

review staffing to ensure safe

and adequate levels are in

place and are matched to

clinical need – which can

change daily.”

She also said the CDHB’s

neonatal senior nursing team

has had no contact from the

NZNO or its delegates, or staff

within the unit, regarding the

issues Ms Hanham has brought

up in the media.

Bin swap cost a

big surprise

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

A LANDLADY is complaining

about the city council’s rubbish

bin swapping charges after she

was quoted $91 to get her tenant’s

red bin downsized.

Suzanne Parsons, a selfproclaimed

“serious environmentalist,”

wants to downsize her

tenant’s red bin so she is forced

to sort her rubbish into recycling

and green waste.

But she said the “excessive”

charge is making her think

twice. “I mean the city council

says they’re trying to encourage

recycling, but honestly. I was

expecting a $10-15 pick-up fee,

not this.”

A city council spokeswoman

said the charge has been in

place since July 2010, and was

consulted through the Long

Term Council Community Plan

process.

The charge for swapping one

bin is $91, and two bins is $103.

This covers the removal and

delivery of the bin “as well as the

administration costs associated

with amending the database.”

• By Shelley Robinson

A DONOR has gifted $78,000 so

the Margaret Mahy Playground

can be made more disabilityfriendly.

Otakaro Ltd, which has taken

over some functions from the

now defunct Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority, said it

is unable to release the identity of

the donor yet.

The Government’s $20m

project was criticised when it was

opened in December to much

fanfare, by SmileDial’s New Zealand

chief executive Kelly Dugan,

for its lack of accessibility for

children with disabilities.

SmileDial advocates and assists

City council contractor, Waste

Management, organises the bin

swaps. But Ms Parsons says she is

not allowed to speak to them.

“I would’ve been perfectly

happy to do the bin swap myself,

but the city council says I can’t

deal with or even talk directly to

the contractor. I should be able

to.”

She said the issue has come

up as her single tenant, in a onebedroom

apartment, fills the red

bin every week, and won’t bother

to sort recycling or green waste.

“A one-bedroom flat in this

day and age . . . honestly. I’ve got

grandkids and I’d be lucky to fill

half my red bin every week.”

$78,000 playground gift

families who have children with

an ongoing medical conditions or

a disability.

Mr Dugan (left) was not aware

of the money until The Star informed

him, but he was “stoked.”

“I’d love to know who it is so

I can shake their hand. What

an amazing gift this person has

made,” he said.

An Otakaro spokesman told

The Star it hoped to release further

details about the donation

“soon.”

It did not yet have a itemised

list of the additional features.

Mr Dugan said that he hoped

to be consulted alongside other

disability lobby groups to ensure

the “most bang for the buck.”

Dredging may harm dolphins

• By Bridget Rutherford

IN DANGER?: An expert warns that plans to dredge Lyttelton

Harbour could disrupt the hector’s dolphin population.

PLANS TO dig a deeper

channel in Lyttelton Harbour

are progressing, but critics are

worried about the impact on

the environment, including

endangered hector’s dolphins.

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

wants to deepen the harbour’s

navigation channel by 2m to

accommodate larger container

vessels.

It plans to apply for resource

consent mid-way through this

year.

But University of Otago

marine animal expert Professor

Liz Slooten said the dredging

could be disruptive to hector’s

dolphins living in and around

the harbour. It it estimated there

are just over 7270 left.

Professor Slooten has been

doing research on hector’s dolphins

around Banks Peninsula,

and said the population was already

under threat from fishing.

She said dredging the harbour

floor could remove marine life

fish feed on, ultimately having

a flow-on affect to the dolphins,

she said.

She said Port Otago was also

looking to dredge to accommodate

larger vessels.

“It doesn’t make sense for everyone

to be doing developments,

probably paid out of taxpayer

money, doing environmental

damage when we’re not sure if

these ships are coming.”

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said it wanted to do the

project in order to keep up with

international shipping trends to

support the regional economy.

He said LPC was working

with independent experts to

understand effects on marine

ecologies, marine mammals and

their food sources.

MP and Rapaki runanga

member Nuk Korako said the

runanga wanted the dredged

sediment dumped outside the

harbour.

He said the runanga understood

it was a working port, and

if they could find a balance, they

would be happy.

Green List MP Eugenie Sage

said LPC needed to consult with

the community about its plans

before it applied for consent.

DEEP DIG: Plans are in place

to deepen Lyttelton Harbour.

“Leaving it just to the formal

Resource Management Act

processes is not consultation,

especially given the short timeframes

under the RMA for people

to understand and comment

on complex proposals.”

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman

Paula Smith said the dumping of

sediment dredged up would be

the most contentious issue.

She said some people in Sumner

and Taylors Mistake had

previously been worried that

the sediment could travel north

with the sea current.

‘Big win’ for

Harrington’s

in competition

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

HARRINGTON’S Breweries

has come up against

commercial beer giants to take

third place in an international

beer competition in Melbourne.

They took the award in the

Champion Small International

Brewery category.

It is a “big win” for the small

Christchurch brewery, director

Carl Harrington said.

“A big American brewery

[Moylan’s Brewing Company,

California] took out the category.

It’s not an outright win

but the New Zealand craft breweries

are heading in the right

direction.”

The award was given at the

Australian International Beer

Awards, the largest annual beer

competition in the world.

The placing was clinched

thanks to the success of some

new additions to Harrington’s

range, as well as recipe changes

to some old ones.

The family-owned brewery

is celebrating 25 years in July,

with its original Phillipstown

brewery going strong and a new

automated bottling line set to be

installed at its Wigram site.

Readers have their say

after plans to put seven

godwit sculptures in

South New Brighton were

put on hold. City council

staff said the proposed

site is classified as a “noman’s

land” that doesn’t

belong to anyone.

Lyn Willyams – An

unbelievably stupid response

from the city council. If it is

no-man’s land it belongs to

everyone and that’s where the

sculptures should be placed.

The concept drawing looked

beautiful. Wake up council.

We need some beauty in the

east. It must be so frustrating

for all those folk who come up

with great ideas and are then

told it’s not possible, especially

when it obviously is.

EARLIER THIS month I joined

Prime Minister John Key in

visiting some of the innovative

projects helping to shape our

city.

With all the work taking place,

job growth in Canterbury is

particularly strong. The latest

Household Labour Force Survey

shows an unemployment rate of

just 3 per cent in Canterbury in

the March quarter of this year.

It’s important this growth

spreads to all Cantabrians, and

that’s why the Government and

the region are working to develop

the long-term infrastructure

that will sustain and grow the

Wayne Hawker – It is

totally unbelievable that the

city council condemns the

erection of the godwit

sculptures on the southeastern

entrance of the Bridge

St bridge. Reasoning that

the land does not belong

to anyone. What a great

opportunity to construct

an interesting and very

appropriate piece of artwork

on a piece of land that nobody

owns. No doubt the city

council maintains the land on

either side of the approaches to

the bridge – who else would?

Given that, then why not

use the land and maybe the

artwork would become a

tourist destination. After all

the city council are looking for

draw cards to revitalise New

Brighton.

region into the future.

Project 300 led by Minister

Nicky Wagner, which aimed to

get 300 disabled people in

Canterbury into work, has seen

great results with over 600 people

get full or part time jobs, or

into study.

The Government has also

recently announced a two-year

extension to the Canterbury

Skills and Employment hub,

which matches job seekers with

employers, helping employers

in the region meet their skills

needs.

While some projects have

reached completion, the work

St Martins resident Leith

McMurray writes about

the impending demolition

of the 152-year-old

Enfield Villa in Burke St,

Addington, which is to be

replaced by a block of

flats.

I knew the Enfield Villa

many years ago when Pat Allen

bought it in a derelict state and

restored it beautifully.

The only new piece then was

a bathroom built in the style of

the rest of the house.

I had a 1910 villa further

down the street and Pat helped

me with mine as well.

Unfortunately, after I sold

it (having restored it), it was

demolished and a walkway laid

through the property.

The Enfield Villa is such a

gem and one of the earliest

houses remaining in Christchurch.

I’m appalled that Heritage

New Zealand poured scorn

on it. It has a very large section

and could easily fit a block of

flats as well.

Pat laid the brick drive

herself, digging it out to a depth

of nine inches and making several

trips to Glentunnel to bring

back bricks. She and her friend

Murray took down several

trees which had overgrown the

house and blocked the light.

Many hundreds of woman

(and man) hours went into that

elsewhere continues.

Christchurch is equipping

itself to take advantage of tourism

growth. In recent months,

the refurbished Sudima Hotel

has opened and the $20 million

Christchurch Adventure Park

is set to be a strong magnet for

tourists as well as local visitors.

It includes a chairlift, mountain

bike trails, a mountain coaster

and a zip line.

It has been great to see

buildings like the BNZ Centre,

the Lane Neave building and

Environment Canterbury’s new

offices opened, and it is just as

exciting that new businesses

wee house. Perhaps it could

have been sent to Ferrymead?

Some years ago I tried to

interest Diana, Lady Isaacs in

acquiring it for her little village,

but I suspect she was in declining

health at the time and that

never happened. It should be

preserved as an example of old

Addington.

Hoon Hay resident Gary

Knight writes:

As the controversy relating to

heritage buildings evolves as a

platform of debate and forum

of opinion, there are structures

worthy of repair and restoration.

Seismic strengthening of Tai

Tapu’s Otahuna Lodge in 2011

and earthquake proofing of

Diamond Harbour’s Godley

House in 2012 bears testimony

themselves nearby to provide

services for the people that work

in these new buildings.

Work has also begun on turning

a prominent central city

arterial, Manchester Street, into

a main public transport route

and tree-lined boulevard. As

to the importance of both of

these venues.

There exists, however, Enfield

Villa in Addington, also worthy

of sustaining.

Having been through three

owners since 1862 and having

undergone medium to

large preservation modifications

would surely deem this

villa worth of saving, due to its

heritage.

Preservation of Enfield Villa

while building additional rental

facilities and presentation of

the villa as a historic showpiece,

with a nominal visitor fee, would

surely be of monetary benefit

to the close knit community of

Addington, as opposed to demolition

of this iconic structure,

having been one of Addington’s

first homes, for placement of yet

another concrete jungle of apartment

blocks.

The Big Question

Email us your views on anything Christchurch

editor@starmedia.kiwi or comment on

facebook.com/riseupchristchurch/

The Budget will be revealed today which will shape New Zealand for another year. We asked

Christchurch residents what areas they would like to see prioritised in Government spending

Bernadette Brown,

73, retired, St

Albans:

“Welfare for

children would be

my biggest priority

for the Budget, and

a lot of that is to do

with good housing.

Having overcrowded

houses can

cause problems and

there are related

health issues with

overcrowding as

well. I think they

need to spend

money a bit more

wisely, it seems

to be wasted on

things like flag

referendums and

what have you.” ​

Edward Green, 82,

retired, Hoon Hay:

“Schools, health and

houses would be my

top priorities. There

also needs to be

more funds towards

supplementing

pensions and

providing home

help. On the

pension you really

don’t have much to

live on.”

Sophie Booker, 19,

student, Ilam:

“I definitely would

say health needs to

be at the top of the

list. Recent budget

cuts for mental

health funding

in Christchurch,

especially

considering the

earthquakes and

all of our stats

rising, means that

mental health is a

huge problem and

something they

need to look at. I

need to know I can

get help if I need it.”

Kim Macfarlane,

58, currently on a

sickness benefit,

Woolston:

“Health definitely

needs to be

prioritised. I

suppose I know

because I’ve been

through the health

system so I know all

about long waiting

lists. Health for

children should

also definitely be up

there, and housing

too.”

William Tebbutt,

18, student,

Lyttelton:

“More money

should definitely

be put into jobs

and getting more

people employed.

They were talking

about raising the

minimum wage as

well I guess, which

is a good thing, and

more money should

be put into health.”

Nandakishore

Kantamaneni,

30, production

assistant, central

city:

“Jobs should be a

big focus, I am an

immigrant and it

is really hard to

find information

and help to get into

good jobs.”

Paul Robinson, 71,

retired, Woolston:

“Obviously health

should be a big

thing. I’ve had

health problems

and I believe this

is the priority for

most people, as

well as housing.

I’d like to see them

focusing on getting

young people into

their first homes,

and also looking at

child poverty and

preventing violence

against children.”

Peter Mullany, 48,

security guard, St

Albans:

There needs to

be more spent on

health. I end up in

hospital more at

this time of year

and they’re underresourced.

There

also needs to be

more housing for

people like me

because I’m renting

and its really hard

to buy a house.”

Capturing the experiences of people on the street

FOR THOSE of us who have

lived through the last five years,

its often hard to explain to

people outside of Christchurch

how drastic the changes for our

city have been.

Statistics will get us some

of the way – the thousands

of homes that have had to be

rebuilt, the billions of dollars that

are being spent on the recovery,

the thousands of people who

have left the city for good.

What these numbers don’t

capture though is what it’s been

like to live through all this

change. What it’s been like for

people who have seen the neighbourhoods

they lived in totally

transformed. What it’s been like

to watch friends and neighbours

leave the city forever or to fight

tooth and money with EQC for

money you know you are owed.

That’s why I’m so impressed

with the work that’s gone into

John Patterson’s ‘The story of a

small street’ project. Hosted on

the Rebuild Christchurch website,

the project is a grass roots

survey to capture the experiences

of the people on one street and

what’s happened to them since

the earthquakes.

The results of the survey are

confronting. Of the 63 houses on

a single street, 16 needed to be

rebuilt, 17 needed to be repaired,

15 have been sold ‘as-is, whereis’

and four households are still

waiting to be repaired, having

had no work done since the

earthquakes.

One very sad thing noted

by the project is that of the 63

houses on the street, seven of

Megan Woods

them had elderly occupants who

died while still battling EQC or

their insurers. Others have had

to have repairs redone because of

shoddy workmanship, and some

have even had to have their rerepairs

re-repaired.

What I find so admirable about

this project is the way it perfectly

captures the very personal experiences

so many people in our

city have been through.

Hearing the story of one street

drives home just how drastic

the changes we have all lived

through have been. It shows

clearly how much delay and

frustration has been caused by

problems at EQC. It shows us

where we have been, where we

need to get to, and what we need

to do better.

It’s exactly the kind of grass

roots project I’d love to see more

of in the future, to make sure

that the story of people who

lived through the earthquakes

isn’t lost.

Battling family’s

health woes

KICKING THE colds

With this unusual, yet

welcome, warm autumnal

weather, our luck of having

a relatively healthy and

sick-free summer had been

extended.

However, with the subsidence

of the balmy days

and high temperatures, so

too has the tide of good

health in our family.

Last week, one of the

twins woke up with a

barking cough, blocked

nose and rosy cheeks.

Within two days, all six

of us had it one form or

another – some worse than

others, but everyone had a

dose of a little something

to slow them down.

Coughing, sneezing, sore

throat and pounding head

– and that was just me.

It’s hard enough having to

deal with sub-par kids, but

when both myself and my

hubby also feel under the

weather, it’s essential to up

the “get-better” ante so to

avoid a complete crash and

burn.

I delved into the top

cupboard and pulled out

our medicine box to figure

out what we had, and what

was needed. A trip to the

shops soon updated our

stock and we were a family

complete with nasal

sprays, decongestants,

paracetamol, vitamins and

tonics. I was ready for the

battle ahead.

In a bid to get on a quick

track to good health, I

myself embarked on a

religious regime of vitamin

C, fresh lemon and honey

drinks and a good dose

of Vicks Vaporub on my

back, chest and feet. Placebo

effect or otherwise,

it provided me with the

psychological edge to feel

stronger and more able to

support my sick troops.

This ritual especially

takes me back to my childhood

when my parents

would slather us with this

old-school salve (complete

with a big dollop under/

into the nostrils), administer

a spoonful of some

ghastly potion, and send us

to bed in flannelettes and

with hot water bottles.

And so it passes (sort

of) to my own children.

I used Vicks, Vitamin

C chewables (otherwise

known as their “sours”),

plenty of water, fresh fruit

and veges, and the addition

of an organic herbal

product created especially

for children by a New

Zealand company called

Kiwi Herb.

Beyond the medicinals,

I was conscious to let

their wee bodies rest. We

skipped after school activities

to stay at home, relax

and channel their energies

into fighting off the bugs.

Ten days on, and it feels

Melissa McDonnell

like we are on the other

side. These concoctions

have so far proved adequate

to keep the coughs

and colds from progressing

further, noses are drier,

energy is returning, and

the medicine box is no

longer a constant on our

bench.

Yet, I know this is just

the beginning of winter

and there is the potential

for so much more to come.

With six of us in the house,

and each of us exposed to

different new germs each

day, one of us is bound to

bring fresh bugs back to

the rest.

Until then however, I

will enjoy this refreshing

bout of (almost) good

health and keep all appendages

crossed for it to

continue. Meanwhile, my

annual internal debate has

been ignited: flu vaccinations

. . . to jab, or not to

jab?

Oamaru’s Steampunk NZ Festival is on again at

Queen’s Birthday weekend with a rich range of

entertainment, talent, and art.

Steampunks from around New Zealand, and

some from overseas, gather for an annual event

which has found its ideal centre in Oamaru, with

its historic precinct.

The festival is a celebration of the art and

creativity of Steampunk – a genre so wide that it

is hard to define.

“It is about how Victorians viewed the future

– a world of time machines, steam power, and

mysterious creatures,” said festival organiser

Helen Jansen. “But most of all it is about

invention, adventure, and discovery.”

For most people, the festival begins with the

Oamaru Fire and Steam Festival in the streets

and venues of the historic precinct on the night

of Friday June 3, with markets, performances

and usually flaming braziers to ward off the

nocturnal chills.

People can move on from there to an evening

of Vaudeville at the Loan and Merc venue in

Harbour Street from 9pm. The show, compered

by entertainer, singer, and comedian Jackie

Clarke, will include performances by members of

the Steampunk community itself and it has been

rated R-18.

Saturday June 4 sees a writers’ workshop where

participants are encouraged to turn up with their

laptops, if possible, or just pen and paper, so

that a small collection of Steampunk writing can

be brought together and distributed during the

festival.

Other Saturday activities are the tea-duelling

(a biscuit dunking contest), a voice-reading

workshop, and the Splendid Teapot Racing

World Championship event in which has radiocontrolled

vehicles fitted out with teapots racing

around an obstacle course.

Airship races are also planned, after the Victorian

Imagineers Mess Dinner in the evening.

A computer link-up on Sunday June 5 presents

insights into Steampunk Around the World and

in the afternoon, the famous Steampunk Fashion

Show will be held at the Oamaru Club. This is

followed in the evening by the climax of the

weekend’s events, the Steampunk Gala Ball with

a live swing band, dancing, sumptuous supper,

and revellers in costumes from another era –

or perhaps an era that never quite happened.

A festival highlight is always the fashion

show where entrants must come up with a

Steampunk-themed story about the character

and the costume they are wearing.

The stories have ranged from dragon-lore and

werewolves to post-apocalyptic scavengers, and

time-travelling bounty hunters.

“That’s the thing about Steampunk,” said Helen

Jansen. “It’s about possibilities rather than

limits.”

Steampunk markets will be running both

days at the Loan and Merc, where people

can buy artwork, or put together a costume.

Exhibitions including the Steampunk HQ and the

Gadgetorium will be going on throughout the

weekend.

The Steampunk NZ Festival is running

in Oamaru from June 2 to 6.

Detailed information about the events

and booking links can be found on the

www.steampunknz.co.nz website.

Sizzle in sunshine at Palm Springs

• By Mike Yardley

STEEPED IN showbiz

heritage, feted for its modernist

architecture and famed for its

indie-music festival, Coachella,

I recently had a fling with the

sizzling desert retreat of Palm

Springs.

One hundred and sixty kilometres

east of the City of Angels

and being a desert climate, by

day, it’s generally a few degrees

warmer than Los Angeles,

although it can also be starkly

chillier overnight.

Being a Christchurch boy, and

without wishing to tempt fate,

curiosity got the better of me,

so I made a date with the San

Andreas fault line.

It’s Southern California’s biggest

ticking time-bomb, increasingly

overdue to rupture. Visit

the Coachella Valley Preserve

and the signposting will guide

you to the San Andreas Fault,

where you can straddle the

North American and Pacific

Plates, marked by vertical rock

uplift and slot canyons.

Palm Springs is dramatically

backdropped by the chiselled

peaks of the San Jacinto and

Santa Rosa Mountains.

The best way to get a sense of

the wildly contrasting terrain

is to jump on-board the aerial

tramway, allegedly the world’s

largest rotating cable car, which

zips you up Mount San Jacinto.

Alighting from the cable car,

the mountain peaks and surrounding

pine forests are often

dappled in snow, while the

sprawling wilderness is invitingly

laced with scenic hiking trails.

Fifty years ago, nearly every

major American entertainer

owned a home in Palm Springs,

transforming it into a buzzing

winter playground for Hollywood

royalty. In more recent

years, the region has often been

derided as God’s waiting room

for moneyed retirees.

But Palm Springs is absolutely

back in vogue, with a whole new

generation falling in love with its

trademark mid-century architecture.

I previously had no affinity

for modernism, but I was soon

slayed by the glamtastic, Jetsonian

designs in Palm Springs.

Modernism is to Palm Springs

what art deco is to Miami Beach.

Liberace’s Spanish-style casa

in Belardo Rd is still adorned

with his trademark “L” symbol,

while Twin Palms in Alejo Rd,

the Sinatra House, is where Ol’

Blue Eyes lived and fought with

Ava Gardner. You can arrange a

private tour of the house.

Another superb mid-century

gem is the King’s Love Nest, Elvis

Presley’s honeymoon hideaway.

Located in the leafy cul-de-sac

of Ladera Circle, and officially

known as the Alexander Estate,

this mid-century modern classic

with its sprawling butterfly roof

was built in 1962.

The house has been

authentically restored and you

can book a walkthrough. www.

Our People

Madeleine Martin

Revolutionising joint replacements

When Madeleine Martin

isn’t working to 3D print new

bones for specialist patients,

she spends her time

adventure racing, travelling

and working with disabled

skiers. She speaks to Emma-

Jane McLennan about her

twin sister and the time she

followed in Marco Polo’s

footsteps along the Silk Road

Madeleine, you work in a very

interesting area – could you

tell me about it?

Yes, I work at Ossis, which is

an orthopaedic designer and

manufacturer. Basically we

work at the really complex end

of cases, where people need

new solutions because of their

unusual anatomy, multiple

hip replacements or the like.

We scan their bones and then

custom make replacements

using 3D metal printing, called

Electron Beam Melting or

EBM. It’s quite different to, say,

plastic 3D printing because of

the structure – we can actually

create a porous structure which

the bones can grow into.

Wow, how long has this been

around for?

The technique has been

around since 2007, and because

it is relatively new we actually

manufacture in the United

States because they’ve got the

right standards. We sell all

around New Zealand and Australia

and are the leader in the

Australasian market.

This is a highly specialist

industry, how did you get into

it?

Well I’ve got a mechanical

engineer father and a physio

mother, so I think I’ve probably

got my Dad’s technical

side. Then through sport, and

with mum and my twin sister

Charlotte working as physios,

I’ve combined both. I

originally did my mechanical

engineering

and commerce degrees

at Canterbury

University, then I

worked in product

development at

Fisher & Paykel

for five years. But

I always knew I

wanted to work

in the medical

profession,

so when

this

opportunity

came up at one

of the only

high-growth

companies

of its kind

in New

Zealand,

I took it.

That was

two and

a half

years

ago now and its still just amazing

seeing these people come in

and be quite wowed by the team

and what we can do for them.

Good on you! Now I hear

you’re pretty busy outside of

work as well – you’re a skier

right?

Yes skiing is a big passion for

me. Actually about four years

ago we went on a big ski trip,

my partner and I and some

friends – probably about 10 of

us. We followed in Marco Polo’s

footsteps along the Silk Road,

we started in Beijing, right up

through Asia and ended up in

Venice in summertime, which

felt pretty weird. It was always

a bit of a dream to do that

really, to combine skiing

and travelling and see lots

of exotic new places. It was

interesting how people in

each place saw our skiing

as well, in some places it

was really just a mode of

transport so they thought

us a bit silly for doing it

for fun.

by building better bones

Wow! Any interesting stories

from the trip?

One part of the Silk Road trip

that really stood out was our

stay in Arslenbob, Krygsztan. Arslenbob

survived on having the

largest walnut forest in the world,

but in winter that meant there

was 90 per cent unemployment.

A local man, Hyatt, campaigned

community based tourism and

set us up to stay in the village

with the locals and ski through

the walnut forest each day with

Hyatt who had taught himself to

ski from watching it on TV.

Wow, what a trip! And you

volunteer helping disabled

people ski?

Yes, my twin sister and I have

been quite involved in disabled

skiing. It’s really nice to see

people who are really struggling

with a disability just forget that

when they’re skiing – like they’re

just any other person. A lot of

them might use sit-skis or be

assisted in some other way, so it

really just levels the playing field.

It’s so good to see patients come

who might have quite a debilitated

quality of life restore that

through skiing.

And you’re involved in adventure

racing too?

DETERMINATION: Madeleine

Martin competing in the

Coast to Coast in February.

Yes, I just did the Coast to

Coast again this year, I came fifth

in the women’s section so I guess

that’s alright. I tried not to take it

too seriously. I’ve done it before,

the first time I did it was 10 years

ago when I completed it together

with my twin sister. We were the

first twins to complete the Coast

to Coast together actually.

And you followed that up with

the GODZone Adventure

Race?

Yes, that was soon after the

Coast to Coast, and it was a huge

mental challenge. We finished

the course in six days, which was

around mid-field, but we decided

right at the start we were going

to get some proper sleep so we

actually finished the race feeling

okay and still getting on well as a

team. We finished behind Richie

McCaw’s team by about a day I

think, but they hardly slept.

Those are some pretty intense

events, how do you fit training

around full-time work?

I don’t know, you just do it

really. It’s always hard to find

balance but I think it’s really

important to keep your hobbies

up outside of work.

So have you always lived in

Christchurch?

I was born in Christchurch, I

grew up here and studied here

before moving to Auckland for

five years to work with Fisher

& Paykel. So apart from that,

and an exchange to the United

Kingdom during my engineering

degree, yes I have always lived

here. My partner, Blair, and I

love it here. It’s great just being

able to have the lifestyle and its

conducive to fitting in the likes of

my training.

TWINS: Madeleine and Charlotte Martin.

Would you tell me a bit about

your family?

Yes, well my partner is commuting

between here and

Auckland at the moment, and we

don’t have any kids at this stage

but I’ve got enough little nieces

– three of them – to keep me

busy [laughing]. I’m also one of

five children. Charlotte and I are

the second-eldest in our family.

They’re all thinking about doing

the Coast to Coast next year actually,

I might just support-crew

for once though [laughing].

You say you love Christchurch,

so what are your favourite

places to go here?

My partner and I have a dinner

club we like to go to with friends,

where we try new places as they

pop up around the city. The last

one we went to was The Laboratory

in Lincoln, and I always like

to go back to The Monday Room

as I really enjoy the food there.

What would you say to people

wanting to follow their passions?

I just take every opportunity

I’m given really. They’re all challenges

but I enjoy it.

While our shelves boast

internationally famous labels,

New Zealand’s best. Come

check out what local brews

we have on offer.

secrets behind his food is part of what he

loves.

His food is immaculately presented,

like art on a plate, using skills he learned

after almost 40 years cooking across New

Zealand, Asia and Europe.

But it was still good, honest food, he said.

“Everything on the plate has to be edible,

no prissy garnishes or anything like

that.

And the secret to good, honest food

was in the details, he said. From the herbs

growing in the gardens right outside the

kitchen to the bread freshly made in the

mornings, or the hams they cured for

more than a year to get the flavours right.

Sharing that with his guests might mean

inviting them along to select mushrooms

for dinner that night, or in to the kitchen

for a private lesson on how it was prepared.

“It can be pretty frenetic, so you’ve got

to be organised, but generally we get good

at it. And because the menu changes every

day it’s like cooking out of a big magic box.”

His first role in the kitchen was at about

11 years old, when he worked for his stepfather

in the holidays washing dishes to

earn pocket money.

He spent his early years working for chefs

at hotels and restaurants around Auckland.

In his 30s, he worked around the world,

travelling Asia and then working on a riverboat

in Germany and Portugal.

He returned to New Zealand to take a

job at Christchurch restaurant Phloyds,

which he said was awarded Restaurant of

the Year after four months.

He went on to work at several restaurants,

including Espresso 124, which was

where he met his wife, Philippa, who is

also a chef.

He said they met when they were both

guest chefs at the Sign of the Takahe, but

he didn’t think anything of it at the time.

“But she tracked me down at work a few

months later and came into lunch at work

with some friends. She rang me up just before

service and said would you like to get

a drink after work and I said yeah, sure.

And we’ve been together ever since.”

He took on the role at Otahuna 13 years

ago, and was there throughout the earthquakes,

when it had to be closed twice for

repairs.

But although many chefs around the

city lost their jobs, he said the owners of

the lodge made the decision to keep all the

staff on.

Over the four months the lodge was

closed, the team kept busy feeding the

army of workers repairing the place, he

said.

Gardening Advice with

Q

Usually I prune my roses towards the end of June, but at

the moment with the seasons changing and the fact that

they are still flowering, when is the best time to prune and do you

have any other advice on treatment during the colder months?

Congratulations! Today’s winning question came

from Grace Irwin.

A

Pruning Roses

It is imperative that you delay pruning your roses until they

have become completely dormant; ie: leaves no longer

present on the plant. Pruning any earlier with the very mild

autumn we are experiencing may result in new growth appearing

which will then suffer when the cold weather eventually arrives.

Pruning roses may well now be a July task. You should still apply

winter clean up applications of a copper compound at any time

during the next few months however, regardless of whether there are leaves on the rose bushes or not.

When you do prune, ensure you remove any dead or diseased wood, and prune out all inward growing

branches and shorten all other branches back by at least half or more. (Note: this is dependent on

variety). Prune to outward facing buds and always make clean cuts with no straggly ends. One week

after pruning, spray with Lime Sulphur and/or a copper compound such as Copper Oxychloride

to ward off fungal diseases (do not mix these sprays together). Then, 3 or 4 days later, apply a

horticultural spray to kill off any overwintering pests (again do not mix with copper).

Transplant seedlings of cabbage, cauliflower and

broccoli for a continuous supply over winter.

Fruit tree pruning can now begin.

Although the weather has

cooled, there are still a few

tasks to be done in the

garden this month. Here

are some tips to get you

started.

• Vege gardens – The

winter vege garden should

be well established by now

and most of your seedlings

should already be planted.

Continue to sow broad

beans and transplant seedlings

of cabbage, cauliflower,

broccoli and silverbeet

for a continuous supply

over winter. Sow green

manure crops such as

lupin and mustard in the

parts of the vege garden

that will be empty during

the winter months. This

will add nutrients into the

soil and protect beds over

winter.

• Strawberries – It’s

the traditional time of the

year for final preparation

and planting of strawberry

plants. Areas to be planted

should be mounded

80-100cm above existing

ground level. Incorporate

large amounts of compost

into the strawberry bed.

New plants or offsets from

last year’s plants should be

planted 15-20cm apart.

• Fruit trees – Pip and

stone fruit will have shed

their leaves and pruning

can now begin. We do this

as early possible with pip

and stone fruit to avoid

the infection of silver

leaf. Remove all weak and

inward growing branches

and reduce the height

of trees to allow for easy

picking and maintenance.

After pruning, spray with a

copper compound to help

prevent any re-infection of

fungal diseases.

• Hedges – It’s an ideal

time for a final tidy up and

hedge trims. But remember,

there will be no new

growth until spring, so

final trims should not be

too vigorous so the plants

don’t stay bare looking.

• Roses – It is possibly

a little too early for pruning,

and it does depend

largely on the weather.

In the meantime, apply a

copper spray to prevent

infection of fungal diseases

in spring. Remove all dead

leaves around the base of

the rose bushes and apply

compost as both a soil

conditioner and mulch.

• Lawns – Grass growth

has now ceased due to

the cooler weather. It is

an excellent time to level

lawns with a roller as the

moist soil makes levelling

quite easily.

• Paths and walkways

– Paths around the house

and through the garden

can become very slippery

during the winter months;

water blasting can quickly

remedy this problem. In

winter months, we mainly

utilise paths especially

when there are boggy parts

in the garden or lawn. For

this reason, you may wish

to consider additional

paths to provide easier

access.

• Container gardens

– Brighten up decks and

entrances with containers

full of blooming winter

annuals such as cinerarias,

pansies, primulas, snapdragons

and violas.

Finally, check local

garden centres for newly

arrived winter stock of

trees and shrubs as May/

June is a very safe time for

planting.

GARDENING GUIDE

Camellias

Camellias are wonderfully versatile. They

can be grown as a specimen tree, a hedge, a

standard, or as a groundcover; they can also

be espaliered against a wall or fence, grown

as a container plant as well as making a

successful bonsai specimen. They also work

well as fillers under large deciduous trees or

as a background plant to provide a glossy

green foil for summer flowering plants.

Although camellias come in four different

types, the sasanquas are the type currently

looking fabulous. The beauty of sasanqua

camellias is they begin to flower just as many

others begin to fade. They are the first of the

camellia varieties to bloom, starting mid-March

in warmer areas. This family have more flowers

than normal camellias that are smaller, as

are the leaves, which are narrow and pointed.

Sasanquas are also more tolerant of less than

ideal conditions than regular camellias, coping

well with full sun and wind, which makes them a

first choice in hedging; their branching pattern

makes them easy to espalier as well.

Planting

Camellias prefer semi-shaded conditions,

but some varieties will also survive in full sun.

The important thing with camellias is not to

let their roots get too hot, therefore a layer

of mulch is desirable. Camellias like slightly

acidic, moist, free draining soil; if you have

heavy clay incorporate plenty of compost and

gypsum at planting time to aid drainage. If your

soil is still waterlogged you may need to make

a raised bed, as camellias develop root rot in

waterlogged sites.

Fertiliser

Camellias are acid loving plants and don’t like

to be over fed. Use any good acid fertiliser

when planting, adding sheep pellets also to

give them a boost. Yellowing leaves is often

due to a magnesium deficiency; in this case

you should apply Epsom Salts or Sequestron

Plant Tonic.

Pruning

General pruning to keep the plant tidy is all

that is required. If you need to reshape your

camellia, or reduce its height, they can tolerate

severe pruning. Pruning should be done no

later than the end of October otherwise you

are removing next year’s flowers.

Pests

Generally, not a big issue. If you are

experiencing any major infestations, then you

must consider its position. Is your camellia

getting too much wind? Not enough water? Or

are the roots too hot and dry?

Containers

As with all container plants, regular watering

is essential; fertilising, little and often with

Oderings Total Replenish is best. A mulch of

compost is ideal, to keep the roots cool and

stop the potting mix drying out. Some shade is

also beneficial.

Designer going the extra mile

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

WHEN EMMA Glasson was

looking for a name for her

label, she decided to go with

something that meant a lot to her

– Olessya.

On the surface, it goes perfectly

with the classic, romantic

aesthetic of the brand – but for

the designer, it is the Russian

version of her name and a reminder

of her past.

“I was actually born in Russia,

then adopted and brought up in

New Zealand. When I was 16 I

found out that my birth mother

was a seamstress – which was

crazy. Perhaps that’s where I’ve

got my artistic tendencies from,”

she said.

Miss Glasson’s past is woven

intrinsically into her clothing.

As a small child she “always

knew” she wanted to be a fashion

designer.

“When I was as young as seven

or eight I was already making

clothes and things. I would sew

or even staple fabrics together to

make garments for my teddies,”

she said.

As a child, she saw the industry

as glamorous. Remembering,

she laughs: “Now I know that its

really hard work. There are definitely

late nights and times

when you have no life, but I love

it.”

Miss Glasson studied fashion

at Massey University, but

translating that into work was

difficult, she said.

“I was working as a bartender,

which is obviously not what I

wanted to do.”

Her friend, Zara, was in the

same boat. So they put their

heads together and decided “this

was it,” she said.

“We thought, ‘why not start

our own labels?’ It was very

motivating to have a friend going

through the same things, with

DETAIL:

studio (left) and

friend (above).

us both getting into the fashion

world at the same time.”

Miss Glasson took the leap and

launched her brand in March

last year.

She works out of a home studio,

and stocks stores such as The

Collective, at the Colombo.

Most of her clothing is readyto-wear,

but she does take a lot

of custom orders – such as a

wedding dress she is currently

sewing. She says it is “all about”

going the extra mile.

“It’s just little things, like I

had a customer buy a dress a

few weeks ago and she wanted it

taken in a little – I did it for her

free because it was over a certain

price point and then delivered it

to her home.”

Her customer base is steadily

growing, she’s learning about

what women want to wear and

growing her business smarts, she

said.

“It’s all about baby steps.

People think I’m too young and

naive sometimes – I’m 24 – but

you’ve just got to go for it no

matter what they think.”

Centre Stage

Why Am I? – 40-year focus on us

IN 1972, a University of Otago

Medical School study started

following the lives of every baby

born in Dunedin for a year, and

has continued to follow them

for the rest of their lives. They

are, according to an ambitious,

four-part documentary series

available now on TVNZ

OnDemand and starting on

TV One next Tuesday, “the

1000 most studied people in the

world”.

In the 40 years since the

Dunedin Longitudinal Study

began, it has been responsible

for “ on average “ a new scientific

paper or journal article every 13

days.

The 1500-plus papers have

uncovered an “avalanche of

information”, which episode

one of Why Am I? “ the first TV

series made about the study “

boldly attempts to wrangle.

Dunedin’s children are

regarded as an accurate predictor

of life in any westernised nation,

and the study’s findings are used

by governmental policy-makers

around the world.

The documentary, while

made in New Zealand, has this

international audience firmly

in mind. Dunedin is described

unsentimentally as “a small city

in New Zealand” by narrator

Susie Ferguson (RNZ’s Morning

Report), whose BBC-educated

voice guides us through the

series.

A great deal of care has

been taken in scripting the

documentary so that it never

gets lost in a dull swirl of talking

heads. Ferguson’s narration is

smart but accessible, a rare treat

for those who hold up the likes

of David Attenborough as the

benchmark for quality intelligent

television. Why Am I? is on that

same level; it feels sort of like

a macro-level companion to

the famous 7 Up documentary

series.

Much of the talking is given

over to various professors, both

from Otago and overseas. Study

director Professor Richie Poulton

is bright and engaging and wants

to know, “why does one child

grow up to be a burglar and end

GUIDE:

The experts

agree

that the

foundation

for life is set

early.

up in the klink, and another

grow up to be a concert pianist?”

Professor Terrie Moffitt,

an American whose accent

has been corrupted by New

Zealand vowel sounds, studied

antisocial behaviour in boys

from Dunedin and found almost

identical patterns in Pittsburgh,

Pennsylvania. What they all

agree is that the early years

are vital. “It starts out with

something as small as delayed

speech,” Moffitt explains,

“and gathers force over the life

course.”

The first episode introduces

five basic personality types

identified in participants as

4-year-olds, which were shown

to persist all the way into adult

life. By age 34, well-adjusted

(40 per cent), confident (28

per cent) and reserved (15 per

cent) children were more likely

to be happily married with

friends, careers, and better

health than those identified as

undercontrolled (10 per cent) or

inhibited (7 per cent).

The study is strictly

confidential, so none of the

individual participants appear

in the documentary. Instead,

examples are found both locally

and around the world.

Travelling interviewer

Sean Hogan went to prisons,

institutions and hospitals around

the world during the last phase

of research. He recalls one

participant, who has spent most

of his life in prison, saying about

the study: “I haven’t done very

much in my life, but I’ve done

this.”

Ghost stories at Ferrymead

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NATALIYA Orshchuk has

always enjoyed the feeling

of being both horrified and

exhilarated.

Now her independent theatre

company will be presenting their

third season of Victorian and

Edwardian ghost stories at

Ferrymead Heritage Park.

Weird Tales of Midwinter will

take audiences on a pre-show

ghost walk around the park

before launching into two ghost

tales – Carmilla and The Sandman

written by Orshchuk.

The show will star well-known

city performers Michael Adams

and David Allen.

Growing up, Orshchuk had an

interest in Gothic English stories.

"I think it is called the sensation

of sweet horror. As a child,

you want to listen to scary stories

because they scare and excite

you," she said.

The idea to tell ghost stories

at Ferrymead Heritage Park first

formed while Orshchuk was visiting

the park on a quiet day.

"I think any ghost story you tell

in the dark with a lantern in your

hand at Ferrymead Heritage

Park on a winter night is going

GHOST STORIES: Performer, producer, director and playwright

writer Nataliya Oryshchuk in the upcoming show Weird Tales of

Midwinter at Ferrymead Heritage Park.

to appear as if it really happened

there," she said.

Born in the Ukraine, Orshchuk

moved to Christchurch 14 years

ago to escape the difficult social

and political situation brewing in

her country.

She initially taught Russian

language at Canterbury University

and is now a learning adviser

at Ara Institute of Canterbury.

In 2012, Orshchuk set up NO

Productions Theatre Collective

with an aim to bring together

local actors, musicians and directors

to create site-specific shows.

She said staying in the city

post-earthquake was not easy

and had a large impact on her

independent theatre group.

Yet since setting up her theatre

company, Orshchuk has enjoyed

great success.

Orshchuk described the theatre's

last production Turn of the

Screw, based on the Gothic ghost

story by Henry James, as her

highest achievement as an actress.

"We are taking this show on a

tour. We are going to perform it

again during Victorian Heritage

week in Oamaru in November."

Orshchuk said the fact her

company will be running a third

season of ghost stories confirms

people love mystery and

romance associated with the

early 20th-century where the

stories are set.

•Weird Tales of Midwinter will

run from June 16 to June 19.

Tribute to

Stevie Wonder

ARA INSTITUTE of

Canterbury jazz tutor Kate

Taylor and her band will

perform Stevie Wonder’s

greatest hits at The Cavell

Leitch New Zealand Jazz and

Blues Festival.

The festival began yesterday

and will run until Sunday.

With a full horn and rhythm

section, Ms

Taylor (left)

and her band

will be highlighting

some

of Wonder’s

famous tracks.

“It’s basically

a pull

together of all the tutors at jazz

school, which is awesome . . .

so this band is a special kind of

mix of us all playing together,”

she said.

While working with New

Zealand jazz singer L.A

Mitchell, Ms Taylor had the

opportunity to open as a

backing vocalist for Stevie

Wonder.

The Stevie Wonder tribute

will be held at the Christchurch

Transitional Cathedral this

Saturday at 7.30pm.

WARRIORS WING Manu

Vatuvei is expected to be

available to make his longawaited

playing return in next

week’s NRL match against the

Brisbane Broncos at Mt Smart

Stadium.

Warriors managing director

Jim Doyle denied reports Vatuvei,

who is contracted through

until the end of 2018, has been

shopped around to English

Super League clubs and Japanese

rugby sides and expects he will

be available for NRL selection

following this week’s bye round.

“No, we are not shopping him

around,” said Doyle.

“His recovery is on the right

track.” He had a personal family

issue that set him back but he

was heading in the right direction.

“I would think he would be

good to play and available for

selection following the bye.”

Vatuvei has not played for

three weeks after he was dropped

to reserve grade and stood down

from Kiwis test selection for his

follow us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch

involvement in the prescription

pills and energy drinks scandal

following the Warriors embarrassing

42-0 Anzac Day defeat to

Melbourne Storm.

The 30-year-old, 11-year NRL

veteran served his penance in

the second-tier Intrust Super

Premiership match against the

Canterbury Bulldogs on May

1, but the following day was

granted a week’s medical leave

to deal with personal issues after

reacting angrily to criticism via

social media.

Vatuvei expected to be available for Broncos clash

He returned to Warriors training

on May 9 but was not available

for selection for the round

10 defeat to Penrith in Christchurch

as he continued to work

through his recovery.

Coach Andrew McFadden last

week said Vatuvei was close to

making a playing comeback but

ongoing personal issues including

a family bereavement ruled

him out of contention for Saturday’s

38-12 thrashing against

Canberra.

Vatuvei’s manager Peter Brown

Thursday May 26 2016

also denied his client was looking

to leave the Warriors and

insisted reports to the contrary

were false.

“I can categorically deny that

we are shopping him around,”

said Brown.

“He’s had a difficult few weeks

and has just been dealing with

that stuff and trying to get himself

right to play.”

When asked if he expected

Vatuvei to play for the Warriors

again, Brown said: “Of course.

One hundred per cent.”

• By Gregor Paul

RUGBY’S new rich class

will be those players who

have never quite made the

All Blacks.

It is older players who

either never made test

football or who had a brief

taste of it who are going to

be the big winners in the

collective contract agreement

soon to be unveiled.

Players such as Crusader

Ryan Crotty (right), James

Parsons and Hika Elliot,

who are most vulnerable

to overseas offers, are the

sort of men New Zealand

Rugby is desperate to keep.

These older players, who

have either been part of

the All Blacks or close

to, bring the knowledge

and professionalism that

is critical in Super Rugby

teams where the average

age of squad members in

New Zealand is 25.

The vulnerability of

this older group was illustrated

last week when

long-serving Crusader

Andy Ellis announced he

will leave for Japan next

year and fellow former All

Black, Cory Jane, is likely

to head to Asia.

Jane and Ellis bring a

depth of knowledge and

skills to Super Rugby

that are vital in not only

guiding the younger generation,

but also give their

teams trusted decisionmaking

and accuracy on

the field.

But typically, New

Zealand Rugby player

services manager Chris

Lendrum, estimates that

older, experienced players

in New Zealand can earn

double offshore. Someone

with five years’ experience

in Super Rugby and a

handful of All Blacks caps

can earn around $250,000

a season playing here. If

they headed offshore, they

would most likely be earning

a similar figure – but

in pounds or euros. Japan,

too, is an increasingly lucrative

market for players

with a bit of long service.

There have been a handful

of cases in recent seasons

which have fallen well

outside the norm to demonstrate

how in demand

experienced New Zealand

players are. Colin Slade,

Tom Taylor and Charles

Piutau all received offers

that were significantly

more than double that on

offer in New Zealand.

New Zealand Rugby

wanted to keep all three

but they couldn’t get near

the offers that came out of

Europe. Slade was reportedly

offered $750,000 a

season to join Pau, Taylor

$600,000 to end up at

Toulon and Piutau around

$1 million a season to join

Ulster.

These sorts of offers are

not as uncommon as New

Zealand Rugby would like

and chief executive Steve

Tew warns that the egos

of French club owners, in

particular, make it is

likely that these sorts of

numbers will be seen again

for other senior players.

Negotiations are ongoing

between NZR and

the New Zealand Rugby

Players’ Association to

finalise the latest collective

agreement. Although

both parties are sworn to

secrecy over the detail,

Lendrum has made clear

that the key priority will

be to better protect senior

peripheral All Blacks from

leaving.

The broadcast deal

is believed to be worth

around $350 million over

five years – a 100 per cent

lift on the agreement that

expired in 2015. The players

directly benefit from

this increase, with about

37 per cent of that money

paying their salaries.

In addition to earning

higher basic rates of pay,

it is thought that a pot of

money will be put aside to

incentivise older players

to stay. For instance, it

may be a massive bonus

payment kicks in if they

stay in New Zealand for a

certain number of years.

Highlanders concentrate on defence

HIGHLANDERS assistant coach

Scott McLeod has still not signed

to return to the franchise next year

but says he is “pretty interested’’ in

staying in the south.

However, McLeod has not yet

put pen to paper to remain as

the assistant coach for the team

as rumours swirl over whether

he will be following head coach

Jamie Joseph to Japan.

Ever since word spread late last

year that Joseph was heading to

Japan there had been suggestions

he would be taking some of his

coaching staff with him.

Assistant coach Tony Brown

has signed for next year while

McLeod is still working through

with Highlanders management a

deal for 2017.

At the moment, McLeod, the

defence coach for the franchise,

is concentrating on what is next

on the agenda and it is does not

come much bigger than a match

against the Hurricanes in Wellington

on Friday night.

The game has been labelled

the “rematch’’ by the Hurricanes

marketing people but McLeod

said any talk of the game being a

replay of last year’s final was not

being taken up by the Highlanders

and the players.

“We’ve not talked about the

final. And so it shouldn’t be as

we are sixth and seventh. If we

were both top of the table then

maybe it would be talked about,’’

McLeod said.

Both teams had the bye last

week but the Highlanders did

not have a week off.

They trained three days last

week as the side tried to keep

momentum going following

its two excellent wins over the

Chiefs and then the Crusaders.

Coming off the two great

victories, the Highlanders have

now run into a bye and will then

have more than a month off the

paddock as the season stops for

the test window.

Highlanders need to work on is

the starts of matches.

Against both the Chiefs and

the Crusaders the Highlanders

were slow out of the blocks.

“We got put under a hell of a

lot of pressure against the Chiefs

and the Crusaders, mainly at

the start of those games. Just the

momentum they got and the

line breaks they were able to do,’’

McLeod said.

“So we have to shore up our

defensive line a little bit more.’’

Driven

MX-5 goes as good as it looks

• By Ross Kiddie

I GUESS one of the most

difficult processes a car

manufacturer has to go through

is combining body design along

with mechanical purpose, there’s

no point in making a car look

good if it doesn’t perform in the

manner for which it is destined.

I’ll be bold enough to say

that Mazda’s MX-5 is the perfect

combination of appealing

sports car looks along with the

mechanical components which

make it an exciting, vibrant

drive. And as a total package it

is sheer genius; from $40,995

the price is affordable, the thrill

you get each time you are in it is

immense, and in terms of practicality,

desirability and performance

there are few rivals.

Regular readers will recall my

1.5-litre MX-5 evaluation in

these columns in November last

year, this evaluation focuses on

the 2-litre variant, bearing in

mind that it lists at $46,995, and

$48,495 in automatic gearbox

form, as tested.

As much as I like manuals, I’m

quite pleased the test car was an

automatic. The 1.5-litre I drove

last time was a manual and to

schedule the other option was a

sensible decision. The six-speeder

has low and close ratios for

that immediacy under acceleration

that you would expect from

a serious sports car, the MX-5 in

this form is quick, it will cut out

a standstill to 100km/h time of

6.5sec, and will lunge through a

highway overtake in 5.2sec.

Alongside the paddle-shift

sequential changing options

the MX-5 in this form gets an

engine management process

which, at the flick of a button,

hastens engine urgency.

The ‘sport’ setting awakens the

engine to another level, it is

frenetic, and somewhat urgent.

I don’t know whether it’s me

getting a little old, but I far preferred

the more moderate setting,

and even in that mode if

you want vivid acceleration it is

easily available.

MAZDA MX-5: Convertible operation can be done with one hand.

Like all MX-5s before it, the

newcomer incorporates engine

sound, not so much through

the exhausts, but the engine sits

close to the cockpit and you are

well aware when it is working

hard. It’s not uncomfortable, and

most would welcome the intrusion

– that’s the way it is with

MX-5 and it’s a matter of enjoying

it.

I took the test car to Lake

Coleridge village, it was a beautiful,

warm autumn day so the

roof was folded (one easy movement

with the left arm), and it

was an experience true to the

concept of convertible motoring.

In my introduction I mentioned

the mechanics which

make the MX-5 so capable as a

sports car. The rear-wheel-drive

layout, the fully independent

suspension, and the near perfect

front/rear weight split combined

to produce handling of sheer

genius.

The MX-5 isn’t over-tyred,

it doesn’t need huge rubber to

glean grip, the 205/45 x 17in

Bridgestone Potenza tyres do

have sticky properties, but at

just 1033kg the tyres are never

loaded, you just point into a corner,

apply power, and the exit is

forceful. You can enjoy an oversteer

type of handling feel if that

is what you like, but before you

• Price – Mazda MX-5,

$48,495

• Dimensions – Length,

3915mm; width, 1735mm;

height, 1230mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

1998cc, 118kW,

200Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/

h, 6.5sec

• Fuel usage – 6.9l/100km

get too playful the traction control

system will negate that feel.

Of course, you can be tempted to

switch that off, I wasn’t that brave

but I can report that even with

TCS activated you can still have

an enormous amount of fun with

the way the MX-5 handles.

Everything about its construction

is engineered to deliver the

involvement factor as a driver,

the steerage is precise, the way

the suspension absorbs bumps

yet keeps tyre contact to ground,

and with the low centre of gravity

there is no lurching within the

handling process, the technology

within the chassis dynamics is

biased toward driver involvement.

Mazda rate the 1998cc, twincamshaft,

16-valve engine with

118kW and 200Nm, that’s up

about 22kW and 50Nm on the

1.5-litre unit. It’s not a huge step

up, but for those who are of the

mindset that bigger is better

then it’s there for you, however,

I’d opt for the entry-level unit, it

is a wee honey.

That aside, the 2-litre works

through the transmission unimpeded

and has a broad spread of

torque which makes driving in

all environments adaptable along

with a fun element if you have

the desire to ease the accelerator

down.

And, as you would expect

from Mazda, fuel consumption

isn’t excessive. It claims a

6.9-litre per 100km (41mpg)

combined cycle average, my

time with the test car saw the

fuel usage readout hover around

8l/100km (35mpg), along with

an amazing 4l/100km (70mpg)

instantaneous readout at

100km/h, the engine spinning

slowly at just 1750rpm, a result

of a tall top gear. That’s the beauty

of a six-speed automatic, the

ratios provide that immediacy

when you want swift movement

off the mark along with broadening

out to provide economy at

highway speed.

The MX-5 is also very Mazdaesque

inside, there’s a large central

screen from which you can

sight all of the major functions,

it is controlled by a centre console

dial. It also gets a good level

of kit for comfort and convenience

and, of course, safety items

are in abundance.

As much as I enjoyed the

MX-5 in both forms, I’m an

avid rotary fan and still yearn to

own a tidy RX8. The experience

Mazda has capitilised on during

the years they have been producing

both sports cars has given

it the ability and capacity to

produce exciting models. I can’t

see that changing, but I bet the

pressure is on internally to create

another masterpiece five years

down the track.

A home might be warm and dry, but

as we transition from summer to

winter there is that lack of cosiness

to our homes. By following a few

simple steps you can enhance and

create more warmth within your

home.

Roll out the Rugs

hardwood floors and tiles are

brilliant during the summer months,

but come winter, your feet are likely

to feel a little different. using large

rugs in the main areas of your home

will help to insulate a room and keep

your feet warm. The textured look of

a rug will also add a feel of cosiness

to a room.

Add textuRe

Just as you do with winter fashion,

creating warmth in your interiors is

all about adding texture.

In your bedroom, swap your

summer duvet for a thick, plush

winter one, then finish the look with

layers of throws and

cushions.

Invest in good-quality

throws. Choose a few

that match the décor in

your home, and then

literally throw them over

DEALER FINANCE LIMITED

Dealer Finance Limited and the Commerce Commission have entered into a settlement agreement relating to

overcharged interest on loans. This resulted from Dealer Finance not crediting part repayments made by borrowers

against the unpaid balance of the loan as soon as practicable, and as a consequence, overcharging interest to the

borrower.

If you purchased a vehicle through one of the car dealers listed below between April 2005 and April 2015, which was

financed through Dealer Finance, you may be entitled to a refund of any overcharged interest, together with a 5%

uplift payment.

Dealer Finance has recently sent notification to all affected clients by mail. If you have not received this notification

please contact Dealer Finance by email on enquiries@dfl.co.nz to find out whether you are entitled to a refund.

Please include your full name, current and previous addresses, and if known, the car dealer you purchased your car

through and the vehicle registration number.

PLEASE NOTE - NO contact is required from you:

• if you still have a current open loan(s) with Dealer Finance; or

• if you have previously repaid a loan(s) with Dealer Finance (taken out between above dates) but have a current

loan(s) with Dealer Finance,

as we will be crediting your open loan or we have made or are in the process of making appropriate internal

adjustments.

A copy of the settlement agreement can be found on www.comcom.govt.nz
