Philip Burdon<br />

GAGGED?<br />

Cathedral<br />

group say<br />

they are<br />

muzzled<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

PHILIP BURDON and Jim<br />

Anderton say they have been<br />

gagged from talking publicly<br />

about the future of Christ Church<br />

Cathedral.<br />

<strong>The</strong> former MPs, who are<br />

trying to save the Cathedral from<br />

demolition, signed confidentially<br />

contracts in September last year<br />

preventing them speaking about<br />

a report carried out by Miriam<br />

Dean QC into the arguments over<br />

whether to save or demolish the<br />

building.<br />

That lapsed after the report was<br />

released late last year, but this<br />

week they told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> they were<br />

still told not to talk.<br />

<strong>The</strong> gagging order came to light<br />

this week when <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> asked the<br />

two former MPs for an update on<br />

the Cathedral.<br />

Mr Burdon said he could not<br />

talk about anything involved in<br />

the process.<br />

“[Gerry] Brownlee’s<br />

office has requested complete<br />

confidentiality, and accordingly<br />

we respect his complete<br />

confidentiality and it is entirely<br />

up to his office to decide what<br />

information, if any, they wish to<br />

release,” he said.<br />

But yesterday, Mr Brownlee’s<br />

office threw confusion on the<br />

gagging order when it referred<br />

questions from <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> about<br />

the confidentiality issue to<br />

the Department of the Prime<br />

Minister and Cabinet.<br />

At a Glance<br />

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST<br />

This week in history saw the New Zealand Boxing Association<br />

being formed in Christchurch on <strong>July</strong> 4, 1902. Hundreds of<br />

people were evacuated as serious flooding affected the city<br />

on <strong>July</strong> 4, 1977. Three young men drowned in the Avon River<br />

as a result of a boating mishap on <strong>July</strong> 6, 1887. Widespread<br />

flooding also caused problems in the province on <strong>July</strong> 7, 1908.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Canterbury Society of Arts was formed on <strong>July</strong> 8, 1880.<br />

Civic tree planting began on <strong>July</strong> 9, 1863. Part of the day’s<br />

planting was a commemorative tree, generally regarded as the<br />

beginning of the Botanic Gardens. Hagley Park and Botanic<br />

Gardens were included in the city boundary on <strong>July</strong> 10, 1922.<br />

A record crowd of over 57,000 watched the All Blacks play<br />

against the British Lions at Lancaster Park on <strong>July</strong> 10, 1971.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Blind Care Company has been<br />

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds<br />

for over 60 years. Those six decades<br />

have seen changes in both fashion and<br />

technology. Styles have ranged from<br />

festooned fabric swags to straightforward<br />

and still popular holland roller blinds,<br />

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,<br />

and in every colour or pattern popular<br />

since the 1960s.<br />

Whatever your style, the Blind Care<br />

Company has the expertise to keep your<br />

window treatments looking fresh and<br />

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly<br />

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,<br />

smell fresh and are restored to their<br />

original glory. <strong>The</strong> company can repair<br />

blinds also, having a huge range of parts<br />

in stock. And if you want something<br />

<strong>The</strong> company prides itself on efficient<br />

service, providing a fast turn-around,<br />

with most work taking one or two<br />

days, and a same day cleaning option is<br />

available. It makes it as easy as possible<br />

and drop-off service is available. 150<br />

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,<br />

or one of their mobile vans can do up to<br />

50 per day. That means they will come to<br />

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them<br />

Giant mural lifts spirits<br />

‘Freak’ Wilson’s<br />

latest<br />

masterpiece<br />

CHRISTCHURCH street artist<br />

Wongi ‘Freak’ Wilson’s latest<br />

artwork continues to enthrall<br />

the Garden City.<br />

<strong>The</strong> mural on the side of the<br />

UniMed building at the corner<br />

of Gloucester and Manchester<br />

Sts was completed last month<br />

and shows two children playing<br />

hide and seek.<br />

It was commissioned by<br />

UniMed New Zealand and set<br />

up by the street art collective<br />

OiYou.<br />

Wilson (left)<br />

said as far as he<br />

was aware there<br />

are no plans to<br />

build in front of<br />

the mural.<br />

“So hopefully<br />

it’ll be there for<br />

some time.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> giant images are<br />

modelled on his and his wife<br />

Emma’s niece, and on the son of<br />

a good friend.<br />

Born and raised in Sydenham<br />

in Christchurch where he still<br />

lives, Wilson’s cheerful murals<br />

continue to lift spirits city-wide.<br />

He says his art has evolved<br />

from a hobby to a full-time<br />

•From page 1<br />

His office said the DPMC was<br />

leading discussions between<br />

Great Christchurch Buildings<br />

Trust and the Anglican Diocese.<br />

But a DPMC spokesman told<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> the confidentiality<br />

agreement only applied until the<br />

report was released late last year,<br />

inferring Mr Anderton and Mr<br />

Burdon were in fact able to talk<br />

publicly.<br />

Mr Anderton said after the<br />

career with the help and<br />

support of Emma, who is an<br />

accountant, and boosted by the<br />

opportunities brought about in<br />

post-quake Christchurch.<br />

He did a Certificate in Design<br />

at the Christchurch Polytechnic<br />

Institute of Technology in<br />

2009, and has never looked<br />

back, doing dozens of murals<br />

each year, many of them<br />

confidentially agreement lapsed<br />

he was told that any comment<br />

would have to come from a<br />

former Canterbury Earthquake<br />

Recovery Authority senior<br />

staff member now based in<br />

Mr Brownlee’s office, who also<br />

liaises with the DPMC.<br />

Mr Anderton said he was<br />

abiding by that directive.<br />

But a central city developer<br />

Earnest Duval said someone<br />

needed to talk about what was<br />

documented at his website,<br />

www.wongi.co.nz<br />

His interest in graffiti developed<br />

at a young age, watching<br />

the art form grow over the<br />

last two decades from virtual<br />

non-existence to a blossoming,<br />

pervasive creative influence<br />

across the country.<br />

He has played a major role in<br />

transformation graffiti art in<br />

happening with the Cathedral,<br />

because the silence was fuelling<br />

uncertainty for developers and<br />

property owners.<br />

“It is such a significant project<br />

for Christchurch because it is<br />

a catalyst for so much development<br />

in the area,” he said.<br />

He said he understood the<br />

details of the discussions being<br />

kept under wraps, but either the<br />

Government or the Cathedral<br />

campaigners should be allowed<br />

Christchurch through both his<br />

hundreds of large-scale murals<br />

across the city, and through<br />

several exhibitions at Canterbury<br />

Museum and the COCA<br />

Gallery.<br />

His medium of choice is the<br />

spray can but his trademark is a<br />

diverse range of styles featuring<br />

a blend of traditional graffiti<br />

and photorealism.<br />

Cathedral group say they are muzzled<br />

to give updates on the process.<br />

Mr Anderton said the Government<br />

had taken keeping information<br />

under wraps too far.<br />

“I think it’s the time, and well<br />

past it, that they could actually<br />

make an announcement about<br />

what is actually happening.”<br />

A spokesman for the Anglican<br />

Diocese said it was not aware<br />

of or involved in any confidentiality<br />

agreement around the<br />

discussions.<br />

In Brief<br />

86-YEAR-OLD DIES IN FIRE<br />

An 86-year-old reported to be<br />

Raymond Leslie John Burnett died<br />

after a fire tore through his home<br />

south of Cheviot yesterday. An<br />

elderly woman, believed to be his<br />

wife, managed to escape the fire<br />

which had engulfed the house,<br />

police said. Fire crews were called<br />

to the burning house, on Gore Bay,<br />

about 7.40am.<br />

BUS PATRONAGE<br />

Patronage of the city’s orange line<br />

bus route was up 8 per cent in<br />

May compared to the same time<br />

last year, while patronage of the<br />

Orbiter was down 6.2 per cent.<br />

<strong>The</strong> blue, yellow and purple lines<br />

were at close to the same level of<br />

patronage. <strong>The</strong> total number of<br />

people using these five main lines<br />

was 709,432, a fall of 1.2 per cent<br />

compared to the previous year.<br />

ARTIST DONATES PAINTINGS<br />

Christchurch artist Rangi Downes<br />

has donated his paintings to 51<br />

hospitals and doctors’ offices<br />

around the South Island, and has<br />

no plans to stop. <strong>The</strong> 75-year-old<br />

has returned from a road trip<br />

delivering the Mickey Mouse<br />

paintings, which he began to<br />

donate after hearing the stories<br />

of children fighting cancer. He<br />

is now working on a series of<br />

paintings for sick children in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

POLLUTION GUIDELINE<br />

EXCEEDED<br />

<strong>The</strong> city recorded its fourth and<br />

fifth high pollution days for the<br />

year within the last week. <strong>The</strong><br />

health-based concentration<br />

guideline was exceeded on<br />

Sunday with a 24-hour average<br />

concentration of 51mcg of<br />

suspended particulate per cubic<br />

metre of air, measured at the<br />

monitoring site in St Albans. On<br />

Monday, 95mcg was recorded at<br />

the Woolston monitoring site. <strong>The</strong><br />

national compliance target that<br />

Christchurch will be expected<br />

to meet will be set at three high<br />

pollution days per year from<br />

September, dropping to one day<br />

from 2020.<br />

News<br />

Couple not shaken after grisly find<br />

THE Christchurch<br />

holidaymaker who found a<br />

bundled up human head washed<br />

ashore in Fiji says he knew as<br />

soon as he picked it up what he<br />

held in his hands.<br />

<strong>The</strong> gruesome find is believed<br />

to be the latest in a gory case<br />

of a Russian couple murdered<br />

and dismembered on the Pacific<br />

island.<br />

A host of body parts, including<br />

two pairs of severed feet,<br />

have washed to shore in the past<br />

fortnight.<br />

Graeme Bickley and his wife<br />

Jan were walking along Natadola<br />

beach on Monday morning<br />

when they spotted a green<br />

bundle sitting about 10m out<br />

from shore in low tide.<br />

<strong>The</strong> couple, like many around<br />

them, were fascinated by the<br />

murder mystery and had been<br />

reading as much as they could<br />

about it.<br />

Joking at first, they wondered<br />

whether this might be more<br />

body parts, Mr Bickley told the<br />

New Zealand Herald.<br />

“My wife spotted it and she<br />

said: ‘Oh, look at that’ and I said:<br />

‘Oh, it’ll be more body parts’.<br />

“[I was] just joking, but when I<br />

went out into the water and bent<br />

down to pick it up and found it<br />

was so heavy . . . you think: ‘Oh,<br />

okay’.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> bundle, tied and secured<br />

with nylon fishing line, was<br />

weighed down by rocks, which<br />

made it hard to carry, Mr Bickley<br />

said.<br />

“I got it to shore finally and<br />

put it down on the sand and the<br />

stones rattled in it and I thought:<br />

‘Oh no, this is not good’.”<br />

Although he and his wife<br />

chose not to open the bundle,<br />

police later confirmed it contained<br />

a human head, but did<br />

not say who the victim was.<br />

“It’s a funny little feeling in<br />

your tummy. Like, that was<br />

somebody’s life a few days ago,”<br />

Mr Bickley said.<br />

“It’s also a funny feeling about<br />

how the people who had put that<br />

package together had been so<br />

inhuman.<br />

“[<strong>The</strong>y had] been able to cut it<br />

up and spend considerable time<br />

putting it into this parcel, which<br />

was very neatly and securely fastened<br />

so it actually survived all the<br />

tides that brought it ashore again.”<br />

Fiji police this week said DNA<br />

tests showed the body parts<br />

LEFT: Graeme<br />

and Jan<br />

Bickley.<br />

ABOVE: Yuri<br />

and Natalia<br />

Shipulin.<br />

belonged to Russian couple Yuri<br />

and Natalia Shipulin, who went<br />

missing on June 16.<br />

Police believe the Russians,<br />

who had reportedly been in Fiji<br />

since 2011, were murdered and<br />

dismembered.<br />

Media reported this week that<br />

detectives had information a<br />

chainsaw was missing from a<br />

farm the couple were running on<br />

the main island of Viti Levu.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Fiji Times said they were<br />

leasing the property and operating<br />

a photography business, with<br />

one friend describing them as<br />

“soulmates”.<br />

However, their business<br />

partner Andrew Luzanenko told<br />

the Fiji Sun they had financial<br />

difficulties after the farm was<br />

devastated by Super Cyclone<br />

Winston this year.<br />

Mr and Mrs Bickley were back<br />

in their Christchurch home by<br />

yesterday evening, having been<br />

due to end their holiday by then<br />

anyway.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y were left not too shaken<br />

by the grisly find.<br />

“Once we’d spoken to the police<br />

and the [Fijian] newspaper,<br />

obviously we thought about it all<br />

day and it did leave a funny feeling<br />

in my tummy I must admit.<br />

“Here’s a person’s life gone and<br />

there’s people probably not far<br />

from us who cut them up and<br />

put them in a package like that.”

Millions to set up Otakaro<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

OTAKARO HAS budgeted<br />

more than $6 million for its<br />

set up, in spite of re-employing<br />

many Canterbury Earthquake<br />

Recovery Authority staff and<br />

moving into its former office.<br />

As of May, Otakaro had spent<br />

$3.9 million of the $6.1 million<br />

budgeted for its set up.<br />

Otakaro is the Crown company<br />

which has taken over control<br />

from CERA of the city’s major<br />

anchor projects.<br />

<strong>The</strong> $3.9 million spend<br />

included the cost of setting up<br />

the office, recruiting staff, the<br />

due diligence process, setting up<br />

policies and procedures and the<br />

“co-ordination and project management<br />

of the establishment”.<br />

That included $348,000 on<br />

recruiting staff, including<br />

$108,000 on international recruitment<br />

for a chief executive.<br />

Chief executive Albert Brantley<br />

was found in Canterbury. Of<br />

the other 90 staff, 52 came from<br />

CERA.<br />

When asked for a breakdown<br />

of the other costs involved in the<br />

set up, an Otakaro spokesman<br />

told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> that the questions<br />

could not be answered this week<br />

and would have to be sent as an<br />

Official Information Act request.<br />

TAKE OVER: Otakaro is based on level eight of the HSBC<br />

building on Worcester Boulevard, where CERA was located<br />

until it closed in April.<br />

But Otakaro chairman Ross<br />

Butler (below) said the costs<br />

were comparable<br />

to any company<br />

created to deliver a<br />

similar programme<br />

of sizeable projects.<br />

“Establishing<br />

Otakaro Ltd in<br />

just 14 weeks was a significant<br />

undertaking given the scale and<br />

magnitude of its role.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> company’s ability to<br />

maintain momentum on the<br />

anchor projects following the<br />

transition from CERA is a testament<br />

to a focus on efficiency<br />

during the set up period,” Mr<br />

Butler said.<br />

Minister supporting Greater<br />

Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Gerry Brownlee would not answer<br />

questions about the set up<br />

costs or what oversight he had<br />

of them. He said they were best<br />

answered by Otakaro.<br />

In a report to a parliamentary<br />

committee, Otakaro said more<br />

of the $6.1 million would be<br />

spent this year reviewing inherited<br />

systems and “bedding in<br />

key establishment policies and<br />

processes”.<br />

Labour’s Canterbury<br />

spokeswoman<br />

Megan Woods (right)<br />

said the fact that so<br />

much was being spent<br />

on setting up systems<br />

concerned her.<br />

“It really highlights that<br />

CERA wasn’t fit for purpose if<br />

five and a half years later we’re<br />

now having to put these systems<br />

in place.”<br />

But she said the money would<br />

be worth spending if the new<br />

systems could speed up the<br />

process.<br />

“If this is $6 million invested<br />

in getting things moving, it’s<br />

a good investment. But what I<br />

don’t want to see is good money<br />

going after bad. So the proof will<br />

be in the pudding, really,” she<br />

said.<br />

In Brief<br />

• By Shelley Robinson<br />

Underground insurance woes<br />

MAN ARRESTED AFTER<br />

SCIRT: <strong>The</strong> Wairakei Diversion has been repaired as part of the<br />

major upgrade to the city’s wastewater network. ​<br />

THE CITY council is facing a<br />

multi-billion dollar problem as it<br />

tries to find an insurer and<br />

options to cover the network of<br />

underground pipes.<br />

It has been crunching the<br />

numbers over the past few<br />

months on how much insurance<br />

to get and how to get it.<br />

Currently, there is $6 billion<br />

of underground infrastructure<br />

with $100 million cover<br />

through the Local Authority<br />

Protection Programme Disaster<br />

Fund.<br />

Above ground, buildings and<br />

other assets are well-covered,<br />

with $1.8 billion coverage<br />

for $2.2 billion of assets, but<br />

underground is another story,<br />

said city councillor and the<br />

insurance committee deputy<br />

chairman, Raf Manji.<br />

“Certainly it is a risk that<br />

we’ve had to carry for a long<br />

time. We do have a huge amount<br />

of underground infrastructure<br />

that is not insured,” he said.<br />

It’s a risk mitigated by the “resilience”<br />

built into the networks<br />

– plastic pipes instead of ceramic<br />

that could take “a lot of shaking”,<br />

Cr Manji said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> problem is to go to market<br />

insurers need enough information<br />

to base a price on, said city<br />

council financial officer Peter<br />

Gudsell.<br />

But the city is still undergoing<br />

extensive repairs, meaning there<br />

is “insufficient information to<br />

seek a response from the market”,<br />

he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city had $200 million<br />

of cover with LAPP after the<br />

September 2010 and February<br />

2011 earthquakes, which was<br />

paid out.<br />

Cr Manji favours getting<br />

“catastrophe insurance” or<br />

parametric insurance for the underground<br />

infrastructure. This<br />

insures for a particular event.<br />

In a disaster, the Government<br />

covers 60 per cent of the<br />

cost, with councils paying the<br />

remainder.<br />

But that is under review by the<br />

Local Government Risk Agency,<br />

forcing councils to look at other<br />

insurance options.<br />

“I think the gut feeling is<br />

councils will be taking on more<br />

of their own risk,” said Cr Manji.<br />

Auckland City Council director<br />

legal and risk Katherine<br />

Anderson said it was looking<br />

to purchase cover for its underground<br />

stormwater assets, with a<br />

replacement value of $2.9 billion.<br />

<strong>The</strong> normally candid deputy<br />

mayor, Vicki Buck, who is on the<br />

committee, said she preferred<br />

not to comment on the “minefield”<br />

that was the city council’s<br />

insurance.<br />

But she did say that after the<br />

issues with Civic Assurance,<br />

the city council has been more<br />

cautious.<br />

It took a year of mediation<br />

with Civic Assurance’s reinsurers<br />

before it received its<br />

global settlement in December<br />

of $635 million.<br />

“Our approach to insurance is<br />

once burnt [be] incredibly careful.<br />

Insurance is a regular subject<br />

and there are regular updates,”<br />

she said.<br />

INDECENT EXPOSURE<br />

Police arrested a man on Tuesday<br />

after he exposed himself to a<br />

young child in Riccarton. <strong>The</strong><br />

man is his 40s is known to police.<br />

<strong>The</strong> incident happened about<br />

3.30pm in Kmart. He was taken<br />

into custody and investigations<br />

are continuing.<br />

HUNTER SHOT IN LEG<br />

A man is recovering after being<br />

accidentally shot in the leg by his<br />

hunting partner at Glenthorne<br />

Station, near Lake Coleridge on<br />

Sunday. <strong>The</strong> pair and a third<br />

man, all from Selwyn, were on a<br />

hunting trip when the accident<br />

happened. Senior Sergeant Tony<br />

Beaumont said one of the men<br />

had been unloading his rifle when<br />

it discharged. Police were likely to<br />

lay charges, he said.<br />

CORRECTION<br />

In <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> last week, it was<br />

reported that the city council<br />

made the decision to put $70,000<br />

toward the SingularityU summit<br />

behind closed doors. <strong>The</strong> grant<br />

was discussed behind closed<br />

doors in a public excluded<br />

committee meeting, but the<br />

final decision was made in a<br />

meeting which was open to the<br />

public. <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> apologises for the<br />

error.<br />

Prisoner-to-staff<br />

ratio high<br />

in Christchurch<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

TWO CHRISTCHURCH prisons<br />

have the worst prisoner-to-staff<br />

ratios in the country.<br />

Rolleston Prison has the highest,<br />

with 3.6 prisoners to each<br />

person on staff. Christchurch<br />

Men’s Prison has the second highest,<br />

with 2.8 prisoners to each staff<br />

member.<br />

Most prisons have about two<br />

prisoners to one staff member,<br />

with 1.5 prisoners to each staff<br />

member the lowest ratio.<br />

<strong>The</strong> numbers were revealed in<br />

a report to a parliamentary committee,<br />

which said the ratios could<br />

be influenced by the age and<br />

design of the prison, the type of<br />

programmes on site and the security<br />

classification of the prisoners.<br />

Corrections Association of NZ<br />

president Alan Whitley said the<br />

real ratio from day-to-day at the<br />

prisons was much higher than the<br />

numbers reported.<br />

He said the real ratio from<br />

day-to-day could be as high as one<br />

staff member to 20 prisoners.<br />

<strong>The</strong> numbers reflected the<br />

ratio if every staff member was<br />

at work at one time, but because<br />

they worked shifts that never happened,<br />

he said.<br />

Health battle for rugby star<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

UTO ENOSI Tuipulotu came<br />

to Akaroa four years ago to<br />

get an education so he could<br />

support his family back in<br />

Tonga.<br />

But now he is in<br />

Christchurch Hospital battling<br />

a rare form of cancer.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 19-year-old had been<br />

having trouble with a racing<br />

heart while at rugby training,<br />

and went for a check-up.<br />

It was then<br />

when the<br />

doctor found<br />

a cancerous<br />

growth on his<br />

heart.<br />

<strong>The</strong> building<br />

apprentice is<br />

now in hospital undergoing<br />

chemotherapy treatment.<br />

His former history teacher,<br />

Garry Brittenden, who helped<br />

bring him to New Zealand, has<br />

set up a Givealittle page to help<br />

raise money to bring his family<br />

over to be with him while he<br />

undergoes treatment.<br />

His father, Siaosi, arrived in<br />

Christchurch on Saturday, but<br />

his mother Lou and his two<br />

brothers and sister are still to<br />

travel here. <strong>The</strong> money raised<br />

would also go towards his<br />

ongoing medical costs.<br />

After six days, the page had<br />

raised more than $16,200.<br />

Mr Brittenden said he<br />

was “blown away” with the<br />

response.<br />

He said Uto was a real role<br />

model for the youth in Akaroa,<br />

and was loved by all.<br />

Uto moved to Akaroa to<br />

attend the area school for year<br />

11. He stayed with various host<br />

families during his time.<br />

Mr Brittenden said he<br />

worked extremely hard to gain<br />

NCEA levels one, two and<br />

three, so he could go on to get a<br />

job as a building apprentice.<br />

“It was just through bloody<br />

determination, he just put his<br />

head down, he’s a real role<br />

model,” he said.<br />

“He knew that this was his<br />

opportunity to help his family.”<br />

Uto joined the Akaroa<br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade while<br />

he was at school, and in<br />

2014, made the New Zealand<br />

TALENT: Uto<br />

Enosi Tuipulotu<br />

made the<br />

New Zealand<br />

Barbarians<br />

area schools<br />

rugby team<br />

in 2014, and<br />

played for<br />

Lincoln Colts<br />

this year. ​<br />

Barbarians Area Schools rugby<br />

team, which played the Chiefs<br />

under 18 team.<br />

He has also played for the<br />

Canterbury Country and<br />

Ellesmere representative teams,<br />

and was a Lincoln Colts player<br />

this year.<br />

Davies sets sights<br />

on Brexit debacle<br />

• By Tom Doudney<br />

DEPARTING Hagley-<br />

Ferrymead Community Board<br />

member Joe Davies is off to<br />

Brexit-land but will keep in<br />

touch with grass roots politics in<br />

Christchurch for the remainder<br />

of his term.<br />

Mr Davies, 21, will leave for<br />

the United Kingdom in the next<br />

two weeks, where he hopes to<br />

become involved with “radical”<br />

politics in the wake of the country’s<br />

vote to leave the European<br />

Union.<br />

<strong>The</strong> move will also enable<br />

him to spend more time with<br />

his Swedish girlfriend Lovisa<br />

Limseth.<br />

He will not seek re-election<br />

in October. However, he has<br />

decided not to resign early – in<br />

spite of not being able to attend<br />

the last five board meetings – so<br />

he can keep in touch with what<br />

is happening in the ward for the<br />

remainder of his term.<br />

Mr Davies said he had asked<br />

for a resolution to be passed<br />

at the next community board<br />

meeting allowing him to finish<br />

his term without picking up a<br />

salary.<br />

LOVE AND COUNTRY: Joe<br />

Davies, left, with his Swedish<br />

girlfriend Lovisa Limseth. Mr<br />

Davies will soon return to the<br />

United Kingdom, where he<br />

was born. ​<br />

“I think Brexit has provided<br />

one of the most radical opportunities<br />

for politics in my lifetime<br />

and although I am a Kiwi, my<br />

blood is British.”<br />

Mr Davies reiterated his desire<br />

to become a New Zealand MP in<br />

the future.<br />

“It has been an absolute<br />

honour to serve the people and I<br />

say with absolute certainty that<br />

I will return to New Zealand<br />

when the radical times arrive<br />

here.”<br />

A woman had to be cut from a car after a<br />

crash in Aranui on Tuesday night.<br />

Two women, in their 20s, were taken to<br />

Christchurch Hospital, one with serious<br />

injuries and the other with moderate<br />

injuries, at about 7.30pm.<br />

Fire appliances from the Wainoni and<br />

Christchurch stations spent 30min using<br />

hydraulic rescue gear to remove the roof<br />

of the car to extract one of the women.<br />

<strong>The</strong> car hit a parked vehicle and<br />

smashed it against a nearby dairy on the<br />

corner of Hampshire St and Marlow Rd.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

Viewpoint<br />

Convention Centre Precinct<br />

decision met with approval<br />

I WAS very pleased last week<br />

to be able to deliver some<br />

extremely positive news to<br />

Christchurch residents about the<br />

future of the Convention Centre<br />

Precinct.<br />

In a nutshell, months of design<br />

and planning work has put<br />

us in a good position to open<br />

Christchurch’s new Convention<br />

Centre in late 2019.<br />

This news has been met with<br />

widespread approval from local<br />

government and the business<br />

community, all of whom know<br />

how important the conventions<br />

market is for the region, and<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Having successfully completed<br />

the early design and master<br />

planning stages for the precinct,<br />

Otakaro Ltd has released an<br />

indicative design for the Convention<br />

Centre.<br />

As the Crown-owned company<br />

set up to deliver central<br />

city anchor projects on the Government’s<br />

behalf, Otakaro will<br />

now seek contractors to finalise<br />

the design and then construct<br />

the facility.<br />

Ōtākaro Ltd will also work<br />

with parties interested in opportunities<br />

to develop the wider<br />

Precinct, which has considerable<br />

space for accommodation, car<br />

parking and other potential<br />

uses.<br />

Work on the site will begin<br />

immediately, first with rerouting<br />

of telecommunications and<br />

other early enabling works,<br />

and within the next two weeks<br />

preparations will begin for the<br />

Colombo St to Oxford Tce section<br />

of Gloucester St to close by<br />

the end of <strong>July</strong>.<br />

Engagement with potential<br />

early works contractors will<br />

begin immediately, to allow<br />

substantial earthworks to begin<br />

in October.<br />

A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!<br />

Having certainty around this<br />

project is important for the city’s<br />

forward planning, and I thank<br />

everyone for their patience as we<br />

took the necessary time to make<br />

this decision on the path ahead.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Government remains<br />

absolutely committed to a Convention<br />

Centre Precinct that is<br />

world-class, and offers quality<br />

accommodation, hospitality and<br />

retail to support the convention<br />

facilities.<br />

Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi<br />

Community Board<br />

deputy chairman<br />

David Cartwright<br />

writes about the<br />

role a community board<br />

plays in society and his<br />

time in local body politics<br />

over the past three years.<br />

AS WE approach the local body<br />

elections, I find myself having<br />

many interesting and sometimes<br />

challenging conversations with<br />

friends, colleagues, and people<br />

in the community regarding<br />

the process and purpose of<br />

community boards.<br />

As with anything, the<br />

opinions and level of<br />

understanding around the role<br />

of community boards covers the<br />

entire spectrum from those who<br />

see just another pointless layer<br />

of bureaucracy, to those who are<br />

very supportive and really value<br />

the community level advocacy<br />

and decision-making the boards<br />

can provide.<br />

Often the strongest supporters<br />

are those who have had some<br />

kind of contact with the board,<br />

perhaps through being involved<br />

with a deputation, receiving<br />

a grant for a community<br />

event, or communicating with<br />

board members regarding<br />

improvements to local facilities<br />

or infrastructure.<br />

<strong>The</strong> management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people<br />

in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better<br />

standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe<br />

that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed<br />

plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit!<br />

This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised<br />

their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.<br />

Onyx Homes is the<br />

only company in<br />

the market that<br />

disclose their cost<br />

ensure best price<br />

and quality.<br />

have a role to play<br />

At the heart of it, the success<br />

and relevance of a community<br />

board can be measured on its<br />

ability to communicate with and<br />

advocate for their community –<br />

that is our purpose.<br />

As I come to the end of my<br />

second term on the Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi Community Board,<br />

the range of issues and events<br />

we are involved in continues to<br />

excite and motivate me.<br />

<strong>The</strong> small things really do<br />

make a difference when it comes<br />

to improving wellbeing, safety,<br />

and engagement at a community<br />

level.<br />

Some of the highlights of<br />

this term has been delivering<br />

the new Burnside Park<br />

fitness track, progressing<br />

the replacement Bishopdale<br />

Library, addressing car parking<br />

demands at Jellie Park, and<br />

granting funds to the talented<br />

youth of our ward to attend local<br />

and international sporting and<br />

cultural events.<br />

Recently the board has heard<br />

deputations on the intersection<br />

of Gardiners and Harewood Rds<br />

and looked at various short and<br />

long-term solutions to address<br />

the ever increasing traffic on our<br />

roads.<br />

Other deputations have<br />

covered issues such as the<br />

drying up of our rivers and<br />

streams, increasing quarrying<br />

and land use issues, and the<br />

removal of problem trees on<br />

health or safety grounds.<br />

Of course, not all issues<br />

can be solved at a community<br />

board level, but board members<br />

can elevate any issue with<br />

council staff, request additional<br />

information, and work to find<br />

an agreeable outcome.<br />

All of this means one of the<br />

most important attributes of<br />

an effective board member is<br />

the ability to really listen and<br />

communicate with residents,<br />

other board members, city<br />

councillors and city council<br />

staff.<br />

So when you come to complete<br />

your voting papers in October,<br />

take the time to find out more<br />

about the candidates, think<br />

about the issues that matter to<br />

you and your neighbours, and<br />

take a pro-active approach to<br />

deciding who will be your voice<br />

in the community.<br />

OVER THE last months I have<br />

been hearing from people all over<br />

Christchurch that there is more<br />

crime in their neighbourhoods<br />

and less local police to be seen on<br />

their streets.<br />

So, when the police statistics<br />

were released last month the<br />

comparison between 2015 and<br />

<strong>2016</strong> confirmed what I have been<br />

hearing loud and clear on the<br />

ground.<br />

More cars have been stolen and<br />

more houses have been broken<br />

into. Burglaries jumped from 524<br />

in 2015 to 708 in <strong>2016</strong> – that’s an<br />

increase of 35 per cent.<br />

Across the country the increase<br />

has been just 11 per cent – so<br />

we need to ask why Canterbury<br />

is tracking at our three times<br />

the national rate? This is not a<br />

winning scoreboard in any Cantabarian’s<br />

book! Add to this the<br />

increase in stolen vehicles of 24<br />

per cent and it’s pretty clear that<br />

crime is increasing.<br />

That’s why it’s so disappointing<br />

to see that Canterbury has had<br />

a 21 per cent cut in foot patrols<br />

over the last year. As people are<br />

beginning to spread out again<br />

and the CBD is slowly coming<br />

to life, crime is on the increase. I<br />

would have thought we would be<br />

seeing more police out and about<br />

Crime increasing<br />

not fewer. Especially when other<br />

parts of the country have seen an<br />

increase in foot patrols.<br />

Bobbies on the beat<br />

make a difference – I<br />

have seen first-hand the<br />

success the intensive<br />

neighbourhood policing<br />

in Riccarton has<br />

made. Key to this success<br />

was a local policeman<br />

known to the local<br />

community.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s no doubt in<br />

mind that the Canterbury<br />

Police, ably led by<br />

Canterbury District Commander<br />

Superintendent John Price, is doing<br />

all it can to stem this tide. But<br />

there is only so much they can do<br />

with no additional commitment<br />

from Government to support<br />

their efforts.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re was some money for<br />

police in the <strong>2016</strong> Budget but it<br />

does not mean extra boots on<br />

the ground. <strong>The</strong> new money is<br />

earmarked for deserved pay increases<br />

but does not mean more<br />

crime-fighters out on our streets<br />

catching criminals.<br />

Greg O’Conner, president<br />

of the Police Association,<br />

noted at budget<br />

time that Operational<br />

Commanders will be<br />

disappointed that there<br />

will be no significant<br />

new operational funding<br />

to enable them to<br />

deliver essential policing<br />

services.<br />

What is needed is a<br />

proper commitment to Canterbury<br />

and not the business as<br />

usual mind-set of the National<br />

Government. Just as with health,<br />

EQC, housing, transport and<br />

education, policing needs to be<br />

seen in the context of the last five<br />

and a half years in Canterbury.<br />

Contaminated<br />

properties<br />

list out soon<br />

THE OWNERS of more than 3000<br />

Selwyn properties will soon find<br />

out that their land has been listed as<br />

potentially contaminated.<br />

A two-year programme, carried<br />

out by Environment Canterbury<br />

on behalf of the Selwyn District<br />

Council, has resulted in the identification<br />

of 1837 new potentially<br />

contaminated sites, split between<br />

3152 parcels of land.<br />

<strong>The</strong> news has raised concerns<br />

that land owners’ property values<br />

could be negatively affected by the<br />

information, which will be made<br />

publicly available on an online<br />

database.<br />

However, ECan scientist Davina<br />

McNickel said people had a right<br />

to know what their land had been<br />

used for in the past.<br />

“Being on the list means people<br />

will know whether they should<br />

graze the land, or perhaps fence it<br />

off from stock,” she said.<br />

“It also means people will<br />

understand the implications of<br />

any proposed development or<br />

subdivision of the land and whether<br />

they need to test the land first.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> sites, which belong to 1783<br />

different owners, will be added<br />

to the Hazardous Activities and<br />

Industries List.<br />

Neighbours take on oil giant<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

RESIDENTS ARE standing<br />

up to one of the biggest petrol<br />

companies in the world as it<br />

tries to expand its Edgeware<br />

site.<br />

BP Oil New Zealand owns BP<br />

Edgeware and has applied for a<br />

resource consent to expand its<br />

site at the corner of Edgeware<br />

Rd and Cranford St, adding another<br />

four pumps and 22 more<br />

car parks.<br />

To do so, it has bought two<br />

properties north of the site to<br />

expand into.<br />

But residents on Cornwall St<br />

are fuming at the proposal, saying<br />

they weren’t consulted and it<br />

will ruin the area.<br />

One of opponents, Rob Hull,<br />

said it was not what the area<br />

needed and what the Edgeware<br />

Village Master Plan set out to<br />

achieve.<br />

“Our main concern is that<br />

it is completely counter to the<br />

district plan and what was<br />

envisaged for the future of the<br />

Edgeware village,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> master plan aims to<br />

restore the area as a thriving<br />

shopping centre and community<br />

hub.<br />

Another nearby resident,<br />

Monique Posthuma, said all<br />

commercial corporate entity”<br />

was to “jump up and down”.<br />

“Our biggest concern is it is<br />

going into a residential area.<br />

It’s going away from the plan.<br />

What can we do?” she said.<br />

BP Oil communications and<br />

external affairs manager Shelley<br />

Brady said the demand for service<br />

in the area had increased.<br />

She said improvements needed<br />

to be made to keep up with<br />

that demand and make sure<br />

congestion does not become a<br />

common problem.<br />

“We have been following the<br />

council approval process and<br />

it’s ultimately their decision as<br />

to what will and won’t be approved,”<br />

she said.<br />

City council head of resource<br />

consents John Higgins said the<br />

Edgeware master plan does not<br />

cover the site where the expansion<br />

is proposed.<br />

“It’s important to note that<br />

a master plan does not have<br />

the same relevance when making<br />

notification decisions,” he<br />

said.<br />

“This is because the notification<br />

decision focuses on adverse<br />

effects, rather than the broader<br />

planning assessment that is<br />

required when a decision is<br />

being made whether to grant<br />

the application resource consent.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

Planting for the future<br />

As we reach the middle of<br />

the school year it is a time for<br />

reflection.<br />

I am pleased to see<br />

the vast majority of<br />

students arriving at<br />

school on time and<br />

getting to classes on<br />

time throughout the<br />

day. <strong>The</strong> atmosphere in<br />

classrooms is positive<br />

with both students and<br />

teachers working hard.<br />

Our teachers have<br />

continued to take<br />

the many learning<br />

opportunities offered to<br />

them as they work to<br />

transform the learning<br />

Ann<br />

Brokenshire<br />

for students using digital devices.<br />

It is great to see teachers as well as<br />

students excited through learning.<br />

Learning has taken place in an<br />

array of venues including the<br />

city itself, Victoria Park, Halswell<br />

Quarry, Arthur’s<br />

Pass National Park,<br />

Banks Peninsula, in<br />

various businesses,<br />

in universities and<br />

Ara Institute, and of<br />

course, here on our<br />

school campus. We<br />

are indeed fortunate<br />

to live in Christchurch<br />

with such an array of<br />

learning opportunities<br />

within close proximity.<br />

We are also busy<br />

writing our Education<br />

Brief which will be a<br />

foundation document<br />

for the modernisation of our<br />

buildings. Once completed we<br />

then work with our architects to<br />

complete a “master plan” for the<br />

morning visit<br />

to Hillmorton<br />

where they had<br />

the opportunity<br />

to experience<br />

a taste of what<br />

life is like in the<br />

Year 7 and 8<br />

programmes.<br />

Time spent in Base Camp was followed by<br />

trying some activities that are part of the<br />

Explore programme.<br />

<strong>The</strong> students enjoyed their time making their own<br />

<strong>The</strong> recent Board of Trustees<br />

election brings us a new Board<br />

with two previous members having<br />

been re-elected along with three<br />

new parent representatives and<br />

a change of staff representative.<br />

Having a strong Board which is<br />

willing and able to critique and<br />

review policy will see the school<br />

continuing to look forward with<br />

positivity.<br />

<strong>The</strong> future is bright as we all work<br />

together to ensure our students<br />

leave school being open-minded,<br />

self-aware, civically minded<br />

and successful, confident and<br />

Activities impress crowd on Open Night<br />

A large crowd<br />

of parents and<br />

prospective students<br />

took the opportunity<br />

recently to attend our<br />

Open Night and really<br />

see what Hillmorton<br />

is about! <strong>The</strong>y<br />

couldn’t help but be<br />

impressed!<br />

Many myths<br />

surround schools<br />

and misinformation<br />

abounds, so we<br />

always encourage<br />

people to come and<br />

see for themselves,<br />

all that Hillmorton has to offer.<br />

Large numbers of people were taken on tours<br />

by students with many commenting on the<br />

friendly atmosphere and really positive aspects<br />

such as school size and opportunities, the small<br />

class sizes and support available for those with<br />

learning needs.<br />

As always, we also encourage people to avail<br />

themselves of the invitation to come and visit at<br />

any time!<br />

If you wish to visit any school day, please make<br />

a time with the Principal’s Executive Assistant or<br />

call the School Office.<br />

Year 9 students recently took time<br />

out of their in-class programmes<br />

to spend a day learning at Halswell<br />

Quarry.<br />

To coincide with Matariki and<br />

Arbor Day, students were involved<br />

in assisting with the planting<br />

programme that is taking place,<br />

planting a range of natives in the<br />

conservation area.<br />

<strong>The</strong> opportunity was also taken<br />

for a range of learning to take<br />

place in this context – learning<br />

about the history of the quarry<br />

and its significance to the area,<br />

undertaking the crater rim walk and<br />

completing some Health and PE<br />

activities and learning about some<br />

of the flora of the area.<br />

<strong>The</strong> students also undertook<br />

some photography and creative<br />

Congratulations to Perez<br />

national competition at the<br />

beginning of August.<br />

writing as part of Art and English<br />

programmes. <strong>The</strong> Middle School,<br />

Years 7 to 10, continues to<br />

develop a range of cross-curricular<br />

activities as they seek to provide<br />

engaging learning programmes for<br />

these students.<br />

the chill out of her home this<br />

winter.<br />

Last weekend, Mrs Shaw<br />

walked out of the <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> Home<br />

and Leisure Show with the<br />

winning ticket for a new central<br />

heating system for her home.<br />

“I’m very excited . . . this is<br />

the first sort of prize I have ever<br />

won,” Mrs Shaw said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> system, designed to radiate<br />

heat throughout the house,<br />

was sponsored by Central Heating<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Central Heating New Zealand<br />

managing director Lyall Smith<br />

said the unit is a warm water<br />

central heating system.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y work very well. Silent,<br />

warm, radiant, lovely to have,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Smith said the radiated<br />

panels situated throughout<br />

the house will heat the water<br />

pumped through the radiators<br />

to warm the house.<br />

More than 100 exhibitors<br />

packed into Horncastle Arena<br />

for the three-day show last week<br />

with some of the exhibitions<br />

ranging from motor homes to<br />

trampolines.<br />

<strong>Star</strong> Media event manager<br />

Vanessa Fleming said it was a<br />

fantastic show with “thousands”<br />

through the door.<br />

Hacking and<br />

getting<br />

away with it<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

HANDING over Government data<br />

to hackers is not normal policy<br />

– but that is exactly what the city<br />

council plans to do when it hosts a<br />

“hackathon” this month.<br />

GovHack NZ brings together “civic<br />

hacker” coders, developers and<br />

entrepreneurs to work together over<br />

a weekend, but rather than breaking<br />

into systems they use Government<br />

and council data to innovate and<br />

improve them.<br />

It started in Australia, and events<br />

have been held in the North Island,<br />

but this year will be the first held<br />

in Christchurch. Winning apps last<br />

year included iHelp, which works to<br />

help people connect and get information<br />

and help they need after a<br />

disaster. <strong>The</strong> team from Wellington<br />

won a $4000 prize for their app.<br />

City council IT service manager<br />

Dana Burnett said people could<br />

enter the challenge even if they did<br />

not have technical skills.<br />

•<strong>The</strong> hackathon will be held on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 29-31 at the city council,<br />

Hereford St. Entry is free but<br />

registration is essential. Information<br />

ur People<br />

Laying down the challenge to create<br />

Christchurch-raised<br />

film-maker Tearepa<br />

Kahi directed the 2013<br />

hit Mt Zion starring<br />

singer Stan Walker. His<br />

documentary<br />

Poi E: <strong>The</strong> Story of Our<br />

Song debuts at the<br />

NZ International Film<br />

Festival this month<br />

Poi E was the first Maori<br />

language song to make it to No<br />

1 in the charts. Why did pakeha<br />

New Zealand adopt this song as<br />

their own?<br />

Whether you spoke Maori or<br />

not, you could love this song<br />

because the tune’s so catchy<br />

and the beat’s so infectious.<br />

Dalvanius called it “hobnail<br />

boots music”. It has that party<br />

strum that speaks to working<br />

rural New Zealand and those<br />

space invader sounds which<br />

spoke to urban kids. He<br />

orchestrated it to reflect the<br />

DNA of the people and the time.<br />

You can try to dissect it but it’s<br />

really alchemy.<br />

Does your documentary show<br />

a “warts-and-all” version of<br />

MOTIVATED:<br />

Tearepa Kahi’s<br />

first film Mt Zion<br />

was slightly<br />

autobiographical.<br />

Dalvanius Prime?<br />

More a “full colour, high<br />

definition” version. Dalvanius<br />

was a juggernaut – compromise<br />

didn’t exist in his vocabulary. But<br />

he was also a chess grand master<br />

– he always had another play. He<br />

knew white radio wasn’t going<br />

to play Poi E, so what does he<br />

do? He takes his hat off, goes up<br />

the main street of Patea and asks<br />

Quality hardwood flooring<br />

made from local eucalypts<br />

everybody for a $100 donation to<br />

record the video.<br />

When he couldn’t get it<br />

screened he went to Derek Fox<br />

at Te Karere News, who made<br />

the music video their whole<br />

three-minute bulletin. He saw<br />

everything with so much clarity.<br />

To have a vision that no one else<br />

can see and take others along<br />

with you – that’s what great<br />

people do.<br />

Why did he have so many<br />

chihuahuas?<br />

He had about 10 at one time<br />

and this was before lap dogs were<br />

fashionable. This dude was not<br />

copying anyone – he came fully<br />

formed. As a seven-year-old, he<br />

was rounding up all the loose<br />

pets in Patea and staging circus<br />

performances as their grand MC.<br />

He’d have chickens squawking,<br />

a three-legged dog running<br />

through a wall of fire. He had big<br />

imagination and talent but also<br />

huge commitment and discipline<br />

– a winning combination.<br />

You went to Patea to meet the<br />

people who knew him. Did you<br />

have any surprises?<br />

What hit me is how present<br />

he still is there today – in spite<br />

of his death in 2002 he’s still<br />

shoulder to shoulder with that<br />

community.<br />

Family and friends gave you<br />

access to previously unseen<br />

footage. What was your<br />

favourite find?<br />

<strong>The</strong> crown jewel of the film<br />

is the original tape cassette<br />

recording of Dalvanius and Ngoi<br />

Pewhairangi singing Poi E for the<br />

first time in a jam session at her<br />

kitchen table at Tokomaru Bay in<br />

1982. His cousin had the cassette<br />

hiding in a sock drawer for 32<br />

years. Hearing those voices<br />

from the past is eerie. Ngoi had<br />

written the lyrics but the paint<br />

is still wet on the song and you<br />

can hear them consolidating it<br />

together. He picks up his ukulele<br />

and goes, “How does that shift<br />

happen again?” and they let it rip<br />

one more time. It’s so special.<br />

another Maori music No 1<br />

Why did Dalvanius ask Ngoi<br />

Pewhairangi to write Poi E for<br />

him?<br />

She’d written Prince Tui<br />

Teka’s hit E Ipo which Dalvanius<br />

produced. Realising Maori<br />

language could get airplay was a<br />

light bulb moment for him. <strong>The</strong><br />

record company had allowed it<br />

because it had that big stanza in<br />

English; “My darling Missy, you<br />

are always on my mind . . .” So he<br />

visited Ngoi in Tokomaru Bay to<br />

ask for a song to perform at the<br />

Patea kapa haka festival. Both<br />

towns – East Coast and West<br />

Coast – had lost their freezing<br />

works. When he saw how tall his<br />

whanau became when they performed<br />

that song and the crowd’s<br />

response, he realised he could<br />

do something more with it. <strong>The</strong><br />

fact a waiata could be the genesis<br />

for social change is so powerful.<br />

I think because the path was so<br />

organic and real it allowed for<br />

wider change to take place.<br />

How far have we come since<br />

Poi E?<br />

One of the bittersweet aspects<br />

of this story is that we haven’t<br />

had another Maori language<br />

song reach No 1. <strong>The</strong> challenge<br />

has been laid down for this generation.<br />

We need to remember<br />

that MPs make legislation but it’s<br />

artists who create change.<br />

<strong>The</strong> film premiered during<br />

Matariki – the Maori New Year.<br />

Was that planned?<br />

I wanted it to come out on<br />

Waitangi Day but it would’ve<br />

been a very different story<br />

because Chris Bourke sent<br />

me a two-hour interview he’d<br />

done with Dalvanius that really<br />

changed the game. I also used<br />

two interviews Dalvanius did<br />

with Henare Te Ua as a young<br />

FUN<br />

FAMILY<br />

FITNESS<br />

JUGGERNAUT:<br />

Dalvanius<br />

Prime saw<br />

everything with<br />

so much clarity.<br />

man in 1983 and in 1987 after<br />

he’s masterminded a world tour.<br />

It’s fitting the film comes out<br />

during Matariki – a time for<br />

remembering people who’ve<br />

passed and celebrating their contribution.<br />

Because it has taken<br />

several years to make, sadly<br />

some people instrumental to the<br />

production have passed away including<br />

Dalvanius’ eldest brother<br />

and my own mentor Eruera Nia.<br />

When did you learn Te Reo?<br />

I grew up in Christchurch<br />

where there were limited opportunities<br />

to speak Te Reo. Dad<br />

was a musician in Billy TK’s<br />

band. We spent a lot of time on<br />

the road and twice a year we’d<br />

drive up to Pukekohe to see<br />

whanau. Nana always told the<br />

best jokes in Maori. She’d really<br />

come alive when she was cracking<br />

jokes with her cousins. She<br />

was a big influence.<br />

Your first feature film Mt<br />

Zion was set in your Nana’s<br />

house in Pukekohe. How much<br />

of you is in that story?<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s a lot of my father and<br />

cousins but what motivates the<br />

main character, Turei, is definitely<br />

my story. That question of,<br />

“How far would I go to pursue<br />

my dream?” I got Jim Moriarty’s<br />

phone number and rang him so<br />

many times to beg him to let me<br />

into his theatre company. I was<br />

18 when I got in and spent two<br />

years on the road performing at<br />

high schools, marae and prisons<br />

around the country including<br />

three months inside Paparoa<br />

and Arohata Women’s Prisons<br />

helping “lifers” devise plays and<br />

songs to perform at the Christchurch<br />

Arts Festival. Celia Lashlie<br />

was the prison warden who<br />

made it happen.<br />

It’s time<br />

Why did you decide to try<br />

directing?<br />

As a male Maori actor, I found<br />

myself typecast in this role of<br />

leather-wearing guy with a beer<br />

in one hand. <strong>The</strong>n Don Selwyn<br />

came along with <strong>The</strong> Maori Merchant<br />

of Venice. To be in a Maori<br />

language film was culturally<br />

electric. A lot of relationships<br />

were forged – my wife Reikura<br />

and I played the leads. So our<br />

next project was a Maori Romeo<br />

and Juliet.<br />

What was your greatest<br />

challenge in making the Poi E<br />

documentary?<br />

Allowing Dalvanius’ voice to<br />

tell the story instead of my own;<br />

allowing the past and present<br />

to sing together on the same<br />

page and getting all the various<br />

formats to mesh while allowing<br />

them to exist within their own<br />

time signature. It’s a big responsibility<br />

to be honest. Fortunately<br />

his sister Barletta’s first words after<br />

watching the film were “Yup,<br />

that’s our story”. I felt grateful<br />

and humbled.<br />

Landlords could face tax<br />

Abortion rates<br />

• By Shelley Robinson<br />

LANDLORDS OF derelict sites,<br />

which fall into disrepair after<br />

becoming makeshift shelters for<br />

the homeless, could be targeted<br />

with a new tax.<br />

At last week’s Development<br />

Forum, it recommended that city<br />

council staff should investigate<br />

a derelict site tax, after city<br />

councillor Jamie Gough said it was<br />

time it had tools at its disposal to<br />

force landlords to clean up their<br />

acts.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

was left “relatively powerless” to<br />

deal with the Hotel All Seasons<br />

in Merivale last year, said Cr<br />

Gough.<br />

Squatters had moved into<br />

the building, which is owned<br />

by Pandey Hotel Corporation,<br />

causing it to become both a<br />

health hazard and a danger to the<br />

homeless frequenting it, he said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re was so little we could do<br />

– we could write them (the landlords)<br />

a letter. We don’t have much<br />

in the tool kit,” he said.<br />

Since controversy surrounding<br />

the site, Cr Gough said Pandey<br />

hired a gardener and a caretaker.<br />

Other examples were Antonio<br />

Hall on Riccarton Rd and the<br />

former saleyards, he said.<br />

Cr Gough said a derelict site<br />

IN DISREPAIR: Antonio Hall on Riccarton Rd, is one example that<br />

could incur a derelict site tax, or a helping hand from the city<br />

council if a initiative by Cr Jamie Gough gets the go ahead.<br />

policy could also have “incentives,”<br />

which could include rates remissions<br />

for bringing buildings up to<br />

an acceptable standard.<br />

“It is fair we bring out the<br />

stick to landlords who have their<br />

property in a derelict state. But<br />

we also need to try and remove<br />

the barriers for people not taking<br />

action,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> idea, still in its infancy,<br />

could see the proceeds of the tax<br />

given to those who predominately<br />

inhabit abandoned buildings in<br />

the city – the homeless.<br />

Another option is for the money<br />

to be used to beautify empty sites,<br />

said Cr Gough.<br />

up in over 30s<br />

• By Siobhan Watson<br />

MORE WOMEN over 30<br />

may be having abortions in<br />

Canterbury because they do<br />

not qualify for subsidised<br />

contraceptives.<br />

Statistics New Zealand published<br />

a table showing abortions<br />

for women aged 30 to 40<br />

years and over has increased<br />

7.3 per cent from 2014 to 2015.<br />

Christchurch Family<br />

Planning national medical<br />

adviser Dr Christine Roke<br />

said one of the reasons why<br />

this may be happening is<br />

because women over 30 do<br />

not have opportunities for the<br />

subsidies that women under<br />

30 receive.<br />

She said that long-acting<br />

contraceptives are more<br />

expensive than the pill or<br />

condoms, which means that<br />

women over 30 may not be<br />

able to afford them.<br />

‘’If you go to a GP and your<br />

not subsidised then it can cost<br />

about $100 to get long-acting<br />

contraceptive.’’<br />

<strong>The</strong>se long-acting contraceptives<br />

are more effective at<br />

preventing pregnancy than<br />

other forms of contraceptives,<br />

and she said this may partly<br />

be the reason why the number<br />

of abortions for women over<br />

30 has increased.<br />

Another reason for women<br />

over 30 having more abortions<br />

than women under 30<br />

is because of abnormalities in<br />

the fetus.<br />

‘’A small proportion of<br />

abortions are due to abnormalities<br />

and deformities<br />

in babies and these issues<br />

are more common in older<br />

people.<br />

“This may partly reflect the<br />

statistics,” Dr Roke said.<br />

She also said there had been<br />

an increase in Christchurch’s<br />

population which may also<br />

inflate statistics.<br />

She said although there had<br />

been an increase in abortions<br />

for those aged over 30, there<br />

had also been a decrease in<br />

abortions overall.<br />

<strong>The</strong> overall abortion rate<br />

has fallen by 38 per cent since<br />

2008.<br />

‘’I think it’s great the abortion<br />

ratio is going down,<br />

considering the fact the<br />

Christchurch population has<br />

gotten bigger.’’<br />

Business<br />

KiwiSaver statements well read<br />

MOST KIWISAVER members<br />

are reading their annual<br />

statements but less than a<br />

quarter have checked to see if<br />

they are on track for the kind<br />

of retirement they want.<br />

Research by investment<br />

watchdog the Financial<br />

Markets Authority found 79<br />

per cent of members had read<br />

their annual statement.<br />

Paul Gregory, head of investor<br />

capability at the FMA said<br />

it had been surprised by the<br />

number of people that did read<br />

their statements.<br />

“This shows there is engagement<br />

which is encouraging<br />

and was surprising.”<br />

However, the research did<br />

find a gender and age split on<br />

who read annual statements<br />

thoroughly.<br />

Males over 60 were more<br />

likely to read their annual<br />

statements thoroughly while<br />

females aged 18 to 29 were<br />

least likely to.<br />

Females aged 18 to 29 were<br />

also the ones most likely to say<br />

they did not recall receiving a<br />

statement at all.<br />

For those who didn’t read<br />

the statement the biggest<br />

barriers were that it was too<br />

complicated or they weren’t<br />

interested in it.<br />

But just 23 per cent had<br />

checked to see if their<br />

KiwiSaver account was on<br />

track.<br />

Gregory said the statement<br />

should be a launchpad for<br />

people to think about whether<br />

at they were on track to have<br />

the retirement they want.<br />

“When this arrives through<br />

your letterbox, or in your<br />

email, it’s a great opportunity<br />

to check in with your goals.<br />

And, if you’re not happy, to<br />

check in with your KiwiSaver<br />

provider.”<br />

Of those who checked<br />

whether they were on track the<br />

most common way to do so<br />

was through an online calculator<br />

either on their provider’s<br />

website or through the sorted<br />

website.<br />

<strong>The</strong> research also asked<br />

people what extra information<br />

in the statement would<br />

help people them make<br />

they wanted to see a lump<br />

would have at 65 and a further<br />

62 per cent would like to see<br />

what weekly figure that lump<br />

Countdown to Rio<br />

Dickson chases golden dream<br />

<strong>The</strong> Rio de Janeiro Olympics begin in five weeks<br />

time. Sports reporter Gordon Findlater counts down<br />

to Rio, highlighting some of Canterbury’s brightest<br />

talents. This week, we look at sevens player Sam<br />

Dickson and his miraculous return from injury.<br />

LESS THAN three month’s ago<br />

Sam Dickson lay in the middle<br />

of the field in agony at the Hong<br />

Kong sevens tournament.<br />

His teammates were celebrating<br />

a last minute game winning<br />

try against Kenya. But Dickson<br />

was contemplating how bad the<br />

knee injury he had just sustained<br />

could be.<br />

“First of all, I thought it was<br />

just my MCL which is usually<br />

about eight weeks out. <strong>The</strong>n I<br />

went and had an MRI and found<br />

out the next day the anterior<br />

cruciate ligament) was ruptured<br />

which wasn’t great news. To be<br />

honest, I thought Rio was completely<br />

out of the picture.”<br />

A ruptured ACL would in<br />

almost any circumstance mean<br />

surgery and at least six months<br />

out of the game.<br />

<strong>The</strong> lure of the Olympic Games<br />

was enough for the 26-year-old<br />

to take a risk and go the non-traditional<br />

method of attempting to<br />

recover from the injury without<br />

surgery. A decision that would<br />

keep his Rio dream alive.<br />

<strong>The</strong> odds were not in Dickson’s<br />

favour. However, his knee recovered<br />

to the point where he could<br />

take part in the sevens trial camp<br />

three weeks ago.<br />

“I hadn’t done much field stuff<br />

by then. To be honest, I didn’t<br />

have a lot of confidence going<br />

into that, but I managed to get<br />

through it and I was pretty<br />

happy with the way i went.”<br />

With his knee holding up to<br />

the test, Dickson accomplished<br />

the goal that just a few month<br />

ago he would have seen as a long<br />

shot. Being named in the sevens<br />

squad for the Rio Olympics.<br />

Sevens didn’t enter Dickson’s<br />

mind until 2012, spending 17<br />

years coming through the grades<br />

as an emerging flanker.<br />

Dickson’s rugby career began<br />

as a five-year-old playing midget<br />

rugby for West Melton. He would<br />

play through the grades for the<br />

club, even playing afternoon<br />

games in the country competition<br />

after playing for his secondary<br />

school team, St Thomas, in<br />

the morning.<br />

After going on to play first<br />

XV rugby in his final year at<br />

St Thomas, Dickson spent two<br />

years playing for Marist Albion<br />

colts before rejoining his boyhood<br />

club, West Melton. He<br />

would go on to captain the side<br />

as well as lead the Ellesmere and<br />

Canterbury Country representative<br />

teams.<br />

He made the Canterbury NPC<br />

wider-training squad in 2012.<br />

But the catalogue of talented<br />

loose forwards in the Canterbury<br />

ranks meant opportunities were<br />

limited with the likes of Nasi<br />

Manu, George Whitelock, Luke<br />

Whitelock, Matt Todd, Kieran<br />

Read, Richie McCaw and Jordan<br />

Taufua among the ranks.<br />

Sir Gordon Tietjens was looking<br />

for a new crop of players to<br />

bring into his sevens squad in<br />

2012.<br />

Former Canterbury NPC<br />

coach Tabai Matson recognised<br />

something in Dickson that he<br />

believed could translate to the<br />

seven-man game and had the<br />

flanker attend a sevens training<br />

camp.<br />

After impressing at the camp,<br />

Dickson was selected to play in<br />

the 2012 Safari sevens tournament<br />

in Kenya. It was the first<br />

sevens tournament he had played<br />

in, having never previously<br />

played at secondary school or<br />

provincial level.<br />

“It was a bit of a shock to the<br />

system really. <strong>The</strong> altitude in<br />

Kenya was pretty high, plus we<br />

GOING FOR GOLD: Sam Dickson has recovered from a serious<br />

injury and is now gearing up for the Rio Olympics, where he<br />

hopes to win gold with the New Zealand Sevens squad. ​<br />

played six games in one day.”<br />

Tietjens was impressed with<br />

the debut and selected Dickson<br />

in the sevens squad for the upcoming<br />

Gold Coast tournament.<br />

Tweaking a hamstring a day out<br />

from the tournament, though,<br />

meant he was forced to wait for<br />

his New Zealand debut.<br />

Just a month later, he had his<br />

opportunity in Dubai. Dickson<br />

was contracted for the remainder<br />

of the season and claimed his<br />

first IRB sevens title in December<br />

2012 in South Africa. He<br />

would go on to win that year’s<br />

IRB Sevens World Series with<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Dickson’s career could have<br />

taken a very different path at one<br />

stage.<br />

In 2010, he was asked by a<br />

friend to play a game of AFL<br />

(Australian Rules) in Christchurch<br />

“I played a few games, learned<br />

the rules and just got better and<br />

better. All of a sudden i was playing<br />

for New Zealand and went to<br />

the International Cup in 2011.”<br />

Following his performances<br />

for New Zealand in Australia,<br />

Dickson was scouted by Australian<br />

club side St Kilda. But at 22,<br />

he was seen as being slightly too<br />

old to mould into a professional.<br />

With his path now well and<br />

truly heading towards Rio, Dickson<br />

is confident having another<br />

four weeks to get back to full<br />

fitness.<br />

If New Zealand is able to win<br />

gold at the sevens, the victory<br />

will surely taste even sweeter for<br />

Dickson who, at the moment, is<br />

feeling healthy, lucky and ready<br />

to play.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

Taste<br />

<strong>The</strong> love of food involves science<br />

Ever wondered who is<br />

cooking your food when<br />

you go out to a cafe or<br />

restaurant? <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

continues its series talking<br />

with chefs.<br />

Mamacita’s owner and<br />

head chef – Jess Lynch<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

JESS LYNCH had a molecular<br />

biology degree and was on her<br />

way to becoming a doctor when<br />

she threw it all in to pursue her<br />

love of food.<br />

She had finished her pre-med<br />

training, had been accepted into<br />

medical school and was a couple<br />

of weeks away from starting when<br />

she reached crisis-point.<br />

“I thought what am I doing? I<br />

don’t want to spend millions of<br />

years studying to get to a medical<br />

field where there are all sorts<br />

of issues – because in the United<br />

States it’s very complicated but<br />

you end up essentially working<br />

for insurance companies. So I<br />

decided to take a break and went<br />

back to what I always loved,<br />

which was cooking.”<br />

She now runs a popular food<br />

truck, Mamacita’s, which is often<br />

set up in Cathedral Square, and is<br />

negotiating contracts for her own<br />

Mexican restaurant, which she<br />

plans to open later this year.<br />

She grew up in the kitchen in<br />

Southern California, learning<br />

techniques from her Mexican<br />

grandmother, her Italian father<br />

and her mother who was amazing<br />

at everything, she said: “Everything<br />

she cooks turns out perfect”.<br />

Working as a chef had paid the<br />

bills while she studied, but cheffing<br />

also gave an interesting angle<br />

to the things she was learning.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> molecular biology of science<br />

and food go together really<br />

well. My love of food came first<br />

and science came afterward, so<br />

it was really interesting to apply<br />

those ideas to my cooking.”<br />

She originally worked as a<br />

pastry chef, creating wedding<br />

cakes and “hoity-toity” desserts,<br />

but found herself branching into<br />

other things.<br />

But she said her partner was<br />

facing a round of lay-offs at his<br />

job. He had been to New Zealand<br />

before and loved it, so he asked<br />

her what she thought about moving.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> States was looking pretty<br />

a restaurant<br />

dire for working professionals,<br />

the outlook felt really bleak. So I<br />

thought I love adventure, I’ll go.”<br />

She applied for residency in<br />

New Zealand before she had even<br />

set foot in the country, and the<br />

minute she did, she said it was<br />

“love at first sight”.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y both found work in<br />

Christchurch and she spent<br />

several years working for different<br />

cafes and restaurants, before she<br />

stumbled by chance on a listing<br />

for a food truck on Trade Me.<br />

<strong>The</strong> idea of creating a taco truck<br />

was planted, and grew from there,<br />

she said.<br />

She said the food truck worked<br />

well in the post-earthquake environment.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re’s been a different vibe<br />

after the earthquakes, a much<br />

more creative way of looking at<br />

things. <strong>The</strong>re’s a lot more really<br />

gourmet food, and it has brought<br />

a younger vibe and life to the city<br />

which I find really exciting.”<br />

She said California-style Mexican<br />

food was “punchy and fresh”<br />

and less rich than classic Mexican<br />

food. To create it she had to specially<br />

import a lot of ingredients,<br />

and made most of the sauces by<br />

hand herself.<br />

Her secret ingredient was her<br />

range of vinegars, she said – she<br />

usually kept more than a dozen<br />

different kinds.<br />

“It comes back to the science of<br />

it, really. Many of the things vinegar<br />

does changes the food, but<br />

doesn’t have to taste like vinegar.<br />

Often people won’t know I’ve<br />

used vinegar, they’ll just know it<br />

tastes different somehow.”<br />

But some of her projects had<br />

outgrown the food truck and she<br />

hoped she could expand them in<br />

the restaurant.<br />

truck is updated each<br />

1 tsp Lemon juice<br />

1 tsp Salt<br />

1 to taste Freshly ground black<br />

pepper<br />

½ cup Avocado oil<br />

Directions<br />

Peel kumara and cut into chunks.<br />

Toss with the garlic and oil to coat<br />

well. Place in a roasting dish and<br />

bake at 200deg C for 30 minutes.<br />

Cook broad beans in boiling<br />

salted water for 2-4 minutes or<br />

until tender. Shell beans and mix<br />

through kumara.<br />

To prepare wild rocket dressing,<br />

GINGER CORNED BEEF<br />

Ingredients<br />

1½ kg Corned beef<br />

2 ltr Ginger ale<br />

2 tbsp Fresh ginger<br />

2 Chillies<br />

Directions<br />

Place all the ingredients in a pan<br />

(grate ginger and chop chilllies).<br />

Pour over a little extra cold water to<br />

cover the beef, if necessary.<br />

Bring liquid to the boil, then turn<br />

down the heat to a gentle simmer.<br />

Cover pan and simmer beef very<br />

gently for 1 and 1/2 hours.<br />

Remove beef to a carving board<br />

and slice to serve. Can be served hot<br />

or cold.<br />

Tip<br />

Corned beef is whole pieces of beef<br />

that have been cured or “corned” in<br />

seasoned brine (a flavoured salt solution).<br />

Corned beef can be purchased<br />

from butchers and will usually be<br />

labelled “corned silverside”.<br />

When calculating cooking time, as<br />

a rule of thumb you should allow 30<br />

minutes per 500g of corned silverside.<br />

Gardening Advice with<br />

Congratulations! Today’s winning question came from Cheryl Anglesey<br />

QUESTION: I have just moved into a new place and would like to grow a tree/hedge along my<br />

back and side fence. <strong>The</strong> back fence has two fairly large trees right up close (in the neighbour’s) and<br />

the side fence has a tree too but not quite so near. I want something that will grow quickly, be hardy<br />

and reasonably easy to maintain.<br />

Be in to win a<br />

PRIZE<br />

PACK!<br />

$95<br />

ANSWER: Now is an ideal time<br />

to plant your hedge or trees. For<br />

Christchurch conditions, there are<br />

a few varieties that would suit.<br />

• Laurus nobilis – ‘Bay Tree’.<br />

This is a hardy and compact<br />

evergreen that also provides<br />

bay leaves for cooking. It can<br />

be easily trimmed to a two,<br />

three or four metre hedge, or<br />

grown as a tree on its own.<br />

• Photinia - ‘Red Robin’. A very<br />

attractive evergreen plant, with deep crimson new leaves in spring. Easy to grow, it<br />

prefers full sun but will still grow in dabbled light. Trim regularly to encourage a dense habit.<br />

• Prunus lusitanica – ‘Portuguese Laurel’. A large evergreen shrub or small tree, it can easily be<br />

pruned to form a dense hedge. It produces attractive white scented flowers in spring and is<br />

hardy in most conditions.<br />

Always prepare the site for your new plants thoroughly by adding Daltons Compost to the existing<br />

soil before and at the time of planting. Other products to try are Daltons Premium Planter Tabs<br />

and Daltons Premium Tree & Shrub Fertiliser.<br />

Check out our How To Grow guides on our website www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides<br />

for more helpful tips and advice.<br />

Don’t let frost get to your pruned roses<br />

THERE IS more written about<br />

pruning roses than almost any<br />

other aspect of their care.<br />

Yet, why do we prune our<br />

roses?<br />

Here are a few key reasons:<br />

Encourage new growth and<br />

more blooms. Maintain the<br />

health of the rose by removing<br />

old wood, improve air circulation<br />

within the bush.<br />

Maintain a specific shape,<br />

especially for climbing and<br />

pillar roses, and those that are<br />

pegged down.<br />

Not all roses have the same<br />

need to be pruned, some just<br />

need an annual “going over’’<br />

after flowering to remove the<br />

dead wood. Other roses, most<br />

Portuguese Laurel<br />

notably the highly bred hybrid<br />

teas and floribundas, need regular<br />

pruning. If you garden on<br />

a light, sandy soil then prune<br />

your roses only lightly as they<br />

will not be able to support the<br />

vigorous new growth that hard<br />

pruning encourages.<br />

<strong>The</strong> time to tackle pruning<br />

is in the winter while they are<br />

dormant, before they burst into<br />

growth. In some areas of New<br />

Zealand, and in some seasons,<br />

there may seem to be almost<br />

no period of dormancy and so<br />

you must choose your moment<br />

carefully. So do not prune when<br />

there is still a risk of severe<br />

frost, as any new growth will be<br />

frosted and die back.<br />

We have Daltons Premium<br />

Rose packs to give away<br />

that include everything<br />

you need to grow<br />

roses with good bloom<br />

strength, colour and<br />

vigour.<br />

Roses are a wonderful<br />

addition to any garden,<br />

low maintenance and<br />

easy to grow. <strong>The</strong>re are<br />

an extensive number of<br />

roses to choose from to<br />

add fragrance and bursts<br />

of colour to your garden.<br />

Send us your<br />

gardening question<br />

to be in to win!<br />

You will have to cut back<br />

to the next bud, reducing the<br />

plant further.<br />

Most bush roses flower on<br />

the current year’s growth.<br />

A hard prune will produce<br />

more vigorous new growth.<br />

Remove the oldest cane on the<br />

plant; this keeps the bush fresh<br />

and vigorous.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n reduce thick, strong<br />

stems by about half their height.<br />

Thin canes need to be cut back<br />

to one-third their height.<br />

Try to keep the centre of the<br />

plant open. A mess of spindly,<br />

twiggy growth in the middle<br />

of the plant restricts light and<br />

air circulation, encouraging<br />

disease.<br />

• 2 x Daltons Compost<br />

Reviewed by Patricia Murchison<br />

YES IT’S loud, but it’s a wonderful,<br />

homegrown rock opera about<br />

Christchurch heroine Kate Sheppard.<br />

Esther Stevens was terrific as Kate.<br />

Her entrance was magical after a<br />

very funny introduction from Amy<br />

Straker and Phoebe Hurst as her<br />

women side kicks. <strong>The</strong> opening night<br />

audience gasped at the contrast.<br />

Geoffrey Dolan who played Prime<br />

Minister Richard Seddon was a perfect<br />

foil for Kate and her followers.<br />

He was large, devious and determined<br />

women were not going to be<br />

involved in his Parliament.<br />

History shows that the sheer<br />

number of women who signed Kate’s<br />

petition swayed Parliament. <strong>The</strong>re<br />

were quieter moments where Kate’s<br />

private life was spoken/sung about.<br />

Andy Manning led the fantastic<br />

musicians who were such an integral<br />

part of the show.<br />

At the finish, everyone rose and<br />

clapped and cheered for a good 10<br />

minutes.<br />

I’d recommend this loud and happy<br />

affirmation of a life to everyone<br />

except those with sensitive hearing.<br />

Corbett, host of TV3’s<br />

Seven Days, along with Ben<br />

Hurley, Justine Smith and<br />

Tom Furniss.<br />

Lincoln resident and<br />

promoter David Parlane<br />

organised the show – the<br />

first of several events he<br />

hopes to bring to the town.<br />

Mr Parlane said he had<br />

known Corbett when they<br />

were both working in radio<br />

in Palmerston North in the<br />

1980s.<br />

“He was my first port<br />

of call to be honest, so I<br />

contacted him and said<br />

‘hey, how about we do<br />

something like this comedy<br />

night?’” he said.<br />

“All of a sudden, within<br />

probably a week and a half,<br />

we had got four of the best<br />

comedians in New Zealand<br />

coming to Lincoln.”<br />

Thursday <strong>July</strong> 7 <strong>2016</strong> 33<br />

IT DOESN’T seem all that long<br />

ago that my brother and I used<br />

to park ourselves in front of the<br />

TV early on a Saturday morning<br />

to enjoy Fraggle Rock, Fat<br />

Albert and our favourite locally<br />

produced TV show, What Now.<br />

I loved the presenters, the skits<br />

and only ever dreamed of how<br />

cool it would be to be part of such<br />

a show.<br />

So it was a no-brainer when<br />

the opportunity arose to take my<br />

own girls to be part of the audience<br />

fun.<br />

We rallied some school friends<br />

to join us and my eldest was<br />

lucky enough to be asked to<br />

participate in a game (alongside<br />

Hats off to the What Now crew<br />

two other children) called ‘Use<br />

Ya Head’.<br />

<strong>The</strong> three of them had to<br />

stand high atop a 3m perch and<br />

catapult balloons of ‘gunge’ (cold,<br />

slimy goo) into the air in order<br />

to ‘land’ as many as possible in<br />

the small buckets strapped to the<br />

heads of their waiting mothers<br />

below.<br />

Not an easy task for a 6-year<br />

Melissa McDonnell<br />

old, but a challenge that was<br />

accepted with gusto. And why<br />

not? What kid wouldn’t seize the<br />

opportunity to freely throw such<br />

muck at their mother for a whole<br />

45 seconds and get away with it.<br />

She absolutely loved it (me, not so<br />

much).<br />

<strong>The</strong> rest of the morning was<br />

awesome. <strong>The</strong> show was packed<br />

with adventures, skits, games and<br />

loads of activity.<br />

Huge hats off to the What<br />

Now crew who were not only<br />

extremely professional in their<br />

approach, but such a friendly<br />

and fun bunch of people who<br />

magically navigated through a<br />

potentially chaotic mess of 30<br />

screaming kids to create a<br />

well-oiled and seamless adventure.<br />

Before we knew it, the two<br />

hours were up, and a bunch of<br />

happy children streamed out of<br />

the studio, full of smiles, stories<br />

and energy.<br />

When we got home, we<br />

plonked down in front of the<br />

TV to watch the recorded, final<br />

result.<br />

<strong>The</strong> girls thought it was<br />

hilarious to catch glimpses of<br />

themselves on the big screen, see<br />

the entire show in its uninterrupted<br />

glory and get a grasp<br />

on how such a programme is<br />

produced.<br />

This was such a fantastic experience<br />

for both me and my girls,<br />

and I especially love that we now<br />

share a memory of an experience<br />

that will forever link us back to<br />

our childhoods.<br />

A big thanks to the What Now<br />

crew for continually bringing<br />

such life and fun into the lives of<br />

us Christchurch kids – you guys<br />

rock.<br />

Travel<br />

<strong>Star</strong>-studded tour of Tinsel Town<br />

• By Mike Yardley<br />

HOLLYWOOD DRIPS with<br />

international glamour.<br />

But how can you break through<br />

the Tinsel Town mystique and<br />

bask in the stardust?<br />

On my most recent visit, I set<br />

myself the mission of staking<br />

out some old-school glamour,<br />

celeb-heavy haunts and trending<br />

hotspots.<br />

All roads lead to the Hollywood<br />

Strip, or “the boulevard of broken<br />

dreams”, as my Red Line walking<br />

tour guide, Michael, preferred to<br />

call it.<br />

Red Line’s Behind the Scenes<br />

tour has become part of Hollywood<br />

folklore, expertly narrated<br />

and spiriting you into many<br />

storied nooks and crannies, that<br />

most tourists miss. www.redlinetours.com/la<br />

After admiring some of the<br />

legendary names lining Hollywood<br />

Boulevard’s Walk of Fame,<br />

Michael ushered us in what I<br />

think is the most unsung vestige<br />

of Hollywood glam: the Egyptian<br />

<strong>The</strong>atre.<br />

Extensively restored and earthquake<br />

re-strengthened in recent<br />

years, this picture palace was the<br />

birthplace of the movie premiere<br />

and the movie star.<br />

Built by Sid Grauman in 1922,<br />

he used search lights for a premiere<br />

and it was where red carpet<br />

was first rolled out all the way to<br />

the street.<br />

Egyptian music and incense<br />

wafted through the courtyard,<br />

adding to the Egyptian motif,<br />

which was all the rage, given the<br />

epic excavations and discovery of<br />

King Tut’s tomb.<br />

Inside the theatre, I admired<br />

the two Egyptian dog statues, gifted<br />

by 20th Century Fox, which<br />

featured in Cleopatra, starring<br />

Elizabeth Taylor. <strong>The</strong> Red Line<br />

Tour is a great way to get inside<br />

this heritage-studded shrine.<br />

Five years later, Sid Grauman<br />

launched another lavish movie<br />

palace, the Chinese <strong>The</strong>atre,<br />

which continues to host more<br />

world premieres than any other<br />

theatre on the planet.<br />

I’ve often wondered how the celebrity<br />

hand, and footprints, immortalised<br />

in the forecourt, first<br />

came about. Red Line’s Michael<br />

had the good oil.<br />

Sid Grauman created the first<br />

footprints by mistake – stepping<br />

into wet concrete as his theatre<br />

was being constructed.<br />

<strong>The</strong> foreman remarked: “Those<br />

footprints are going to be there<br />

forever,” and the rest is history.<br />

Pop into the Hollywood Museum,<br />

housed in the 1930s Max<br />

Factor building, where so many<br />

screen legends were transformed<br />

in the famous make-up rooms.<br />

Lucille Ball, Rita Hayworth, Judy<br />

Garland and Elizabeth Taylor<br />

were all primped and styled here<br />

– as was Marilyn Monroe. It was<br />

here that the brunette became the<br />

blonde bombshell.<br />

Pop into the landmark Hollywood<br />

Roosevelt Hotel, which<br />

is where Shirley Temple learnt<br />

to tap dance and where Marilyn<br />

Monroe’s first magazine shoot<br />

took place, shot by the Tropicana<br />

pool.<br />

That location is now a top celeb<br />

hideaway that you can gain access<br />

too. A true Hollywood oasis, the<br />

poolside Tropicana Café & Bar is<br />

a seductive all-day retreat.<br />

Enjoy a late breakfast or cheeky<br />

cocktail here. A star-studded<br />

haunt for close celebrity encounters<br />

– and the permanent presence<br />

of paparazzi, is <strong>The</strong> Ivy in<br />

Robertson Boulevard.<br />

It’s a great spot for breakfast or<br />

lunch: order up the cheap and<br />

cheerful homemade buttermilk<br />

pancakes and fresh ginger tea.<br />

If you notice swarms of tourists<br />

photographing the fast food joint,<br />

El Pollo Loco, on the corner of<br />

Serrano Ave and Sunset Boulevard,<br />

the reason is this is where<br />

a struggling young actor named<br />

Brad Pitt, would beckon customers<br />

into the store, dressed up as a<br />

chicken on the roadside. Nearby,<br />

on the Sunset Strip, pop into the<br />

auction house, Bonhams.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y stage regular auctions and<br />

the loot inside this place rivals<br />

a museum. It is the number one<br />

clearing house for second-hand<br />

celebrity goods.<br />

I had a major star moment, in<br />

the elevator of my hotel, <strong>The</strong> Redbury.<br />

Cyndi Lauper swept into<br />

the lift with her entourage, chatty,<br />

charming and looking half of<br />

her 62 years of age. <strong>The</strong> Redbury,<br />

a boutique all-suites hotel, sits<br />

across the road from the iconic<br />

Capitol Records building.<br />

Glamorous, colourful and spacious,<br />

the 57 guest suites come<br />

complete with record players and<br />

vinyl collections. I played Duke<br />

Ellington on repeat.<br />

<strong>The</strong> quirky and eye-catching art<br />

pieces, sprinkled throughout the<br />

property are pure escapism.<br />

I loved the hip Middle Easterninspired<br />

Cleo restaurant and<br />

the indoor-outdoor library for<br />

handcrafted cocktails. Plus there’s<br />

a complimentary BMW house car<br />

available for pick-up or drop-off<br />

within three miles.<br />

Accommodation rates are not<br />

eye-watering – and you never<br />

know who you’ll bump into.<br />

HIGH SCHOOL ENROLMENTS<br />

[Edition datE] 3<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

New Christchurch schools<br />

to offer students more<br />

Avonside Girls’ and shirley Boys’ will<br />

be the first single sex secondary schools in<br />

new Zealand’s history to share a campus<br />

– an arrangement their principals say will<br />

enable the schools to offer their students<br />

new opportunities.<br />

<strong>The</strong> schools are to be built on part of<br />

Qeii Park, next to the Christchurch City<br />

Council’s eastern recreation and sport<br />

Centre.<br />

Avonside Girls’ High school Principal<br />

sue Hume says the campus will be brand<br />

new and state of the art.<br />

“each school will have its own teaching<br />

spaces and students will spend most of<br />

their day in a single sex environment.<br />

That’s important to us. research shows<br />

that single sex education benefits both girls<br />

and boys…boys do better academically<br />

and girls participate more. That’s because<br />

they have space to learn and focus away<br />

from the opposite gender,” says sue Hume.<br />

John laurenson says the new campus is<br />

a step forward.<br />

“Because we are going to work together,<br />

we’ll be able to offer more. For example,<br />

we’ll be sharing some facilities, including<br />

a performing arts auditorium, theatre<br />

and cultural space, which enables us to<br />

build bigger and better assets,” says John<br />

laurenson.<br />

Another benefit is that the students<br />

will be able to interact with and learn<br />

alongside peers from their partner school.<br />

“students from both schools will share<br />

buses to and from the campus, they’ll all<br />

be able to use the café, our new library<br />

and learning centre and our other shared<br />

facilities. This means that not only will<br />

they have all the benefits of a single sex<br />

education, they’ll have social opportunities<br />

not available at other single sex schools,”<br />

says sue Hume.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ministry of education is currently<br />

working on how the new schools will<br />

be zoned but the schools are focusing<br />

on catering to residents who live east of<br />

Colombo street.<br />

“Because we will be servicing a wide<br />

area, we will be establishing a network of<br />

buses to service the campus,” says John<br />

laurenson.<br />

Best of all, sue Hume says the new<br />

campus will open in 2019 so is not too far<br />

away.<br />

“in fact many of our current students<br />

will be making the journey to the new<br />

campus with us and those who join our<br />

schools in the next two years will spend<br />

their senior years there. it’s been a long<br />

and sometimes hard road to get to the<br />

new campus, but we are confident we’re on<br />

track to create something even better than<br />

what we had before the earthquakes.”<br />

SCHOOL HOLIDAY ATTRACTIONS<br />

Become a sleuth and<br />

solve a whodunnit!<br />

Mystery NIGht at the Museum takes<br />

place in the <strong>July</strong> school holidays and<br />

promises a fun time for young detectives<br />

visiting Canterbury Museum during the<br />

four nights of <strong>July</strong> 12, 14, 19 and 21.<br />

A crime scene in the foyer reveals the<br />

‘Waitaha diamond’ has been stolen.<br />

Following the theme of a ‘whodunnit’<br />

the Museum team have created clues<br />

throughout the galleries leading families<br />

on a journey of discovery as they<br />

eliminate suspects and narrow down their<br />

search for the diamond thief.<br />

<strong>The</strong> opportunity to win prizes for<br />

themed costumes and for solving the<br />

‘whodunnit’ are a big drawcard.<br />

Children (aged 14 and under) are<br />

invited to take a photo of themselves<br />

dressed as a sleuth, detective or villain<br />

while they are at the Museum, and to post<br />

it on Canterbury Museum’s Facebook<br />

page to be in to win a prize.<br />

<strong>The</strong> free KidsFest events begin on<br />

‘AMAzING dIsPlAy of planes’, ‘Worth a<br />

trip!’, ‘What a great day to remember’, these<br />

are some recent visitor comments at the Air<br />

Force Museum of New zealand. With free<br />

admission, loads of kid friendly activities,<br />

a large car park and great café, the school<br />

holidays will be an excellent time to check it<br />

out for yourself.<br />

As part of Kids Fest the Museum has<br />

three age specific scavenger hunts on offer.<br />

This year the theme for these activities is<br />

UFos and Aliens. <strong>The</strong> royal New zealand<br />

Air Force has been receiving reports of UFo<br />

sightings since 1952, now the Museum is<br />

offering kids the opportunity to come and<br />

join the hunt for them. older kids can have<br />

a go at translating an alien message. each of<br />

the $6 scavenger hunts receives a prize when<br />

completed.<br />

tuesday 12 <strong>July</strong> and continue on<br />

Thursday 14, tuesday 19 and finishes<br />

on Thursday 21 <strong>July</strong> from 5.30 pm to<br />

HOW TO PLAY<br />

It’s like sudoku: each<br />

vertical and horizontal<br />

line has to contain<br />

the numbers 1-6, and<br />

the numbers can’t be<br />

repeated in any row or<br />

column.<br />

But it’s sudoku with a<br />

twist: <strong>The</strong> numbers in<br />

each heavily outlined<br />

set of squares, called<br />

cages, must produce the<br />

number in the top corner.<br />

For example, 5+ means<br />

the numbers add up to 5,<br />

9x means the numbers<br />

multiply to equal 9.<br />

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the<br />

same line or row.<br />

Tedesco credits mystery mentor for recovery<br />

James Tedesco says a<br />

secret mentor has helped<br />

him recover from injury to<br />

take a place in the New<br />

South Wales State of Origin<br />

squad for game three next<br />

week.<br />

TEDESCO ENDURED an<br />

equally arduous task recovering<br />

from the mental demons<br />

of debilitating knee injuries as<br />

he did overcoming the physical<br />

aspect of it.<br />

But the 23-year-old told <strong>The</strong><br />

Sydney Morning Herald that a<br />

mystery mentor – who he was<br />

referred to by Tigers and NSW<br />

teammate Aaron Woods – has<br />

played a significant part in his<br />

recovery which has led him to<br />

the NSW jersey after 18 months<br />

of hot pursuit.<br />

“He’s someone I started seeing<br />

after all my injuries. He’s really<br />

helped me in my career. He sees<br />

Woodsy (Aaron Woods) every<br />

week as well.<br />

“I think that’s most of the<br />

battle, getting your head space<br />

right.<br />

“I’m feeling confident in my<br />

body and having him to speak<br />

to every week has helped me<br />

mentally,” Tedesco said.<br />

He has endured his fair share<br />

of heartache through what has<br />

been a roller coaster start to his<br />

career.<br />

Few have forgotten the torture<br />

the then teenager suffered being<br />

stretchered off Leichhardt Oval<br />

in the opening minutes of his<br />

debut after rupturing his anterior<br />

cruciate ligament. <strong>The</strong>n there<br />

was the disappointment of a<br />

shoulder injury on the eve of this<br />

year’s Origin series.<br />

But Tedesco has taken solace<br />

in the mystery mentor who,<br />

despite not possessing a sports<br />

psychologist degree, has managed<br />

to have a positive influence<br />

on the mindset of the players he<br />

comforts.<br />

Tedesco proved too “irresistible”<br />

for Laurie Daley to ignore<br />

after passing up the opportunity<br />

to bring him in for game two at<br />

Suncorp Stadium.<br />

“We had to get [Tedesco] into<br />

the side somewhere and I didn’t<br />

think it would be right putting<br />

him on the wing. He’s a fullback<br />

and deserves a chance.”<br />

Tedesco looked certain to get<br />

in game one, only for another<br />

injury setback to deny him of his<br />

maiden NSW jersey.<br />

Grand final rematch<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

THIS WEEKEND’S round of<br />

the UC Championship will be<br />

headlined by a rematch of last<br />

year’s grand final.<br />

St Bede’s College took the<br />

honours last August, defeating<br />

Shirley Boys 32-13 in the grand<br />

final.<br />

With just four rounds<br />

remaining in the competition<br />

neither side is assured of a spot<br />

in this year’s play-offs.<br />

Shirley looked poised to be<br />

a sure thing for the top four a<br />

fortnight ago, but two successive<br />

losses to Nelson College<br />

and St Thomas in the space<br />

of four days has put a dent in<br />

their armour.<br />

“It’s very difficult when<br />

you’re playing three games<br />

in the space of eight days.<br />

We came back from Nelson<br />

with three frontline forwards<br />

out with injury and illness,”<br />

Shirley Boys’ rugby administrator<br />

John Fox said.<br />

However, Fox is confident<br />

that a shift in mentality from<br />

the team’s last two encounters<br />

can get them back in the win<br />

REMATCH: Shirley Boys and St Bede’s will meet on<br />

Saturday in a rematch of last year’s UC Championship final.<br />

minutes against St Thomas and<br />

then relaxed. It just shows how<br />

close this competition is,” Fox<br />

said.<br />

Fatigue won’t be an issue for<br />

St Bede’s who are coming off<br />

their bye weekend, something<br />

coach Gerry Davidson believes<br />

could work in his team’s<br />

favour.<br />

“I think everybody enjoys<br />

their bye weekend. We’ve been<br />

going since the end of April<br />

now and with a couple of<br />

traditional mid-week fixtures<br />

in June, it was nice to have a<br />

break,” Davidson said.<br />

St Bede’s is currently seventh<br />

in the championship. Although<br />

they only have six wins from<br />

10 games, they find themselves<br />

right in the play-off hunt,<br />

three points from a play-off<br />

spot.<br />

“I think for the first time in<br />

a very long time, anyone in the<br />

top eight, or even 10 teams, has<br />

a chance.<br />

“Nobody can take any results<br />

for granted this year,” Davidson<br />

said.<br />

St Bede’s has one member<br />

from last year’s team that won<br />

the UC Championship in this<br />

year’s squad.<br />

Shirley have plenty of boys<br />

with memories of last year’s<br />

final defeat, with 15 players<br />

retained.<br />

Saturday’s grand final rematch<br />

will screen live on CTV<br />

this Saturday.<br />

Kick-off is at 2.45pm from<br />

Shirley Boys’ High.<br />

THE INJURY-HIT Melbourne<br />

Rebels will be sweating on a<br />

batch of fitness tests later this<br />

week as coach Tony McGahan<br />

faces the prospect of fielding a<br />

severely under-strength team<br />

against the Crusaders in Christchurch<br />

on Saturday.<br />

As if the prospect of heading<br />

to New Zealand wasn’t daunting<br />

enough, captain Nic Stirzaker<br />

(ankle), fullback Mike Harris<br />

(ankle) and locks Lopeti Timani<br />

and Luke Jones (both concussion)<br />

will face tests before their<br />

availability is known.<br />

But in somewhat better news<br />

for the now out-of-contention<br />

Rebels, wingers Jonah Placid<br />

(nose) and Sefa Naivalu (leg)<br />

have been declared fit to play<br />

despite coming off early in last<br />

weekend’s home loss to the<br />

Stormers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Crusaders will receive<br />

a much needed boost to their<br />

backline with the return of All<br />

Black Ryan Crotty.<br />

follow us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch<br />

<strong>The</strong> centre sustained a calf<br />

injury in the final test against<br />

Wales, but is ready to get back<br />

into it after watching his team<br />

mates suffer at the hands of the<br />

Chiefs in Suva.<br />

Captain Kieran Read is<br />

expected to be rested for Saturday’s<br />

game, while All Black prop<br />

Joe Moody is out with a neck<br />

injury.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Crusaders side to take on<br />

the Rebels will be named later<br />

today.<br />

Skoda Fabia wagon a<br />

good value purchase<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

THE JUNE 23 referendum<br />

which resulted in Great<br />

Britain’s withdrawal from<br />

the European Union<br />

has taken the world by<br />

surprise.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re will be a long<br />

period of global financial<br />

uncertainty before stability<br />

returns and that will also<br />

affect many aspects of our<br />

down under economies.<br />

In the short term,<br />

imported goods will most<br />

certainly rise, including<br />

motor vehicles, especially<br />

those sourced from<br />

Europe.<br />

That being the case,<br />

there’s probably no better<br />

time to buy a European<br />

car, and if your budget is<br />

a little restricted but you<br />

need a reliable practical<br />

car, Skoda has the answer.<br />

A new Fabia has just<br />

landed and it lists from<br />

$19,990. It arrives here in<br />

three variants, and I was<br />

lucky enough to land a<br />

drive in the range-topping<br />

station wagon which, incidentally,<br />

lists at an amazing<br />

$26,990, making it,<br />

what I believe to be one of<br />

the bargain purchases in<br />

today’s new car market.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Fabia wagon, or<br />

Combi, as Skoda badge<br />

it, is powered by a 1.2-<br />

litre, four-cylinder engine.<br />

Before you scoff at its<br />

meagre displacement, bear<br />

in mind that it produces<br />

81kW and has a healthy<br />

175Nm of torque thanks<br />

to turbocharged boost. If<br />

you take into account the<br />

areas where peak power<br />

and maximum torque<br />

are developed (4600rpm-<br />

5600rpm and 1400rpm-<br />

4000rpm respectively),<br />

there is an unimpeded<br />

supply of power from<br />

very low in the rev band,<br />

providing a spirited drive<br />

through a seven-speed<br />

direct shift automatic gearbox.<br />

If fuel usage is also an<br />

important buying criteria,<br />

the Fabia Combi is listed<br />

with a 4.8-litre per 100km<br />

(58mpg) combined cycle<br />

average.<br />

You don’t have to try<br />

hard to replicate that, I<br />

wasn’t gentle with the<br />

throttle during my time<br />

in the test car, yet it was<br />

easy to have the fuel usage<br />

readout listing around<br />

6l/100km (47mpg), that<br />

along with an instantaneous<br />

readout of 4.6l/100km<br />

(62mpg) on the highway<br />

cruising a steady 100km/h<br />

(engine speed 2050rpm).<br />

I’ve often written about<br />

SKODA FABIA COMBI: Volkswagen-based engineering.<br />

the Czech Republic’s engineering<br />

prowess, and if<br />

you combined that with<br />

Volkswagen’s manufacturing<br />

ideology of quality and<br />

efficiency you won’t be<br />

disappointed with Fabia.<br />

<strong>The</strong> entire package is one<br />

of practicality and functionality.<br />

• Price – Skoda Fabia<br />

Combi TSi, $26,990<br />

• Dimensions –<br />

Length, 4257mm;<br />

width, 1732mm;<br />

height, 1467mm<br />

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1197cc, 81kW,<br />

175Nm, seven-speed<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9.6sec<br />

• Fuel usage–<br />

4.8l/100km<br />

Take it’s 505-litre load<br />

space for example, extending<br />

to 1370-litres, the<br />

wagon section is cavernous<br />

for what is deemed to<br />

be a small car. That doesn’t<br />

come at the cost of rear<br />

occupant space, the Fabia<br />

can still be considered a<br />

marginal five-seater, head<br />

and leg room is satisfactory.<br />

Up front it is the same,<br />

the seating position is constantly<br />

comfortable, and<br />

the controls fall readily to<br />

hand. It’s fair to say the<br />

Fabia isn’t overly complicated,<br />

there aren’t a lot of<br />

functions to speak of, but<br />

the essentials are there,<br />

and there is enough kit to<br />

still consider the purchase<br />

a bargain.<br />

I took the test car on<br />

my usual high country<br />

drive beneath the Malvern<br />

Hills and found it to be<br />

a spirited, well-handling<br />

car which quickly endears<br />

itself. Handling-wise it<br />

is directional with quick<br />

turn-in and positive steering<br />

feel. Providing the<br />

grip are 215/45 x 16in<br />

Bridgestone Potenza performance<br />

tyres, what<br />

they lack in size they<br />

make up for in quality,<br />

they are sticky yet also<br />

quiet, even on our coarse<br />

chip seal.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re aren’t any<br />

surprises within the<br />

suspension, but if you<br />

take into account that<br />

the floorpan is essentially<br />

Volkswagen Polo-based,<br />

you can guarantee<br />

a sophisticated ride<br />

along with spring and<br />

damper rates that arrest<br />

body movement when<br />

confronted with a quick<br />

corner or two, and if you<br />

really want to get serious,<br />

a sport suspension package<br />

is available, it also includes<br />

bigger wheels. But even<br />

in standard form the<br />

Fabia wagon is an adept<br />

handler.<br />

Becasue the engine<br />

develops its power low<br />

in the rev band and the<br />

constant supply of gearing<br />

there is a seamless flow<br />

of energy. It is responsive<br />

and willing, easily offering<br />

the performance needed<br />

for a highway overtake or<br />

a quick burst on a hilly<br />

incline. If you take into<br />

account its 9.6sec time<br />

to make 100km/h from a<br />

standstill, it is a spirited<br />

car for the inner-city traffic<br />

light grand prix.<br />

Regular readers will<br />

relate to my enthusiasm<br />

for the traditional station<br />

wagon. Sadly, the sport<br />

utility vehicle has almost<br />

spelt the end of that concept,<br />

but the Fabia Combi<br />

really appealed to me, it<br />

is car that feels just right<br />

from the moment you hop<br />

into it.<br />

I’m hoping that amidst<br />

all the uncertainty in<br />

Europe at the moment that<br />

good cars like the Fabia,<br />

and the hundreds of others<br />

which find their way from<br />

the Continent to New<br />

Zealand, won’t be affected<br />

by Britain’s decision to go<br />

it alone.<br />
