Post-quake homes:

Why they cost so much

• By Gabrielle Stuart

SINCE THE earthquakes, the

cost of building new homes in

Canterbury has risen by nearly 40

per cent.

Subdivisions have multiplied,

with almost 15,000 new homes in

Christchurch consented since January

2011, together worth more than

$4.6 billion.

Average costs of the new build

increase in dollar terms are not held.

But in the past five years, the average

home in Christchurch city has risen

by more than $120,000.

Statistics NZ surveys builders

about the cost of construction materials,

labour and total build prices, to

calculate the cost of building.

Its latest figures show the price

of new homes in Canterbury, not

including land, has risen by 39.7 per

cent since the beginning of 2011, a

lot faster than the 26.4 per cent rise

in Auckland.

Although the cost of materials and

labour has risen, they haven’t risen

nearly enough to account for the

hike.

Canterbury Registered Master

Builders president Alastair Miles said

a lot of the increase was in extra health

and safety and compliance costs.

A rule change in 2012 means scaffolding

and safety netting must be

used for even small, single-storey

homes, which he said usually added

about $5000-$15,000 per home, and

could add delays.

“All the emphasis on health and

safety is a good thing, but it inflicts

The cost of new homes has gone up 40 per cent since the

earthquakes. Here’s where the money may be going:

Wages: Up 27

per cent since 2011

Materials:

a lot of extra cost on construction,”

he said.

The rules around foundations were

also stricter, which he said could

cost about $5000-$10,000 for a house

on good land, and anywhere up to

$100,000 on badly earthquake-damaged

land.

The boom in work had meant there

was a lot more demand for good

workers, which had pushed up the

cost of labour substantially almost

overnight, he said.

According to Statistics New

Zealand, wages in the construction

industry in Canterbury have gone up

more than 25 per cent since 2011. The

planning costs had also gone up, as

Mr Miles said the process of putting

plans through the city council had

once cost about $1000, but could now

cost about $5000. •Turn to page 4

OUR FRONT page story

today is fairly sobering. The

cost of building a new home in

Canterbury has soared since the

earthquakes.

No rocket science in that but

reporter Gabrielle Stuart finds

out why it is costing so much and

talks to people in the building

and real estate industries.

No wonder the insurance

companies now insist on sum

insured.

And, on another sobering note,

so to speak, there’s some amazing

research happening into quelling

the urge for a drink (see page 4).

Two Christchurch people have

had tiny implants put into their

brains as part of Dunedin-based

research into alcoholism.

The research is a world first and

its goal is to stop cravings.

On pages 8-9 Gabrielle Stuart

investigates a new way of setting

up business premises in the city

- rent a desk or space within an

office.

At a Glance

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the end of the 1951

Waterfront Strike on July 11. On July 13, 1905,

construction of King Edward Barracks began. The

building was completed in 25 days. It was often the

venue for large concerts and civic occasions. Severe

gales with gusts up to 145km/h were recorded on July

13, 1945, followed by a record 280mm snowfall over

the city on July 14. On July 17, 1861, work began on the

railway to Lyttelton. On July 17, 1964, the Government

Life Building in Cathedral Square was opened. It was

the city’s first “high rise glass box”. On July 17, 1979,

Princess Anne visited the city.

But the earthquakes claimed

many heritage buildings, including

strategy says, as a result, the city

has lost much of its “external”

identity – including its “Old

English” theme, anchored by

the Cathedral and “other notable

inner city buildings”.

It will, says the strategy,

impact local pride and confidence

and impede the city’s

economic, social and cultural

development.

The city’s visitor economy has

lost about $1 billion since the

February 22, 2011 earthquake

the “old English” brand meant

more to the city personally as an

identity, evidenced by the city

council using the Cathedral as

its logo.

“That was the identity everyone

focused inwards towards,”

he said.

Mr Veer understand why. He

has a Cathedral tattoo, with

the dates of the September and

February earthquakes and the

number of those who perished

on his leg because he “never

wanted to forget”.

But he said despite this, he

thinks the earthquakes and the

Cathedral should not be central

to how we market ourselves in

the future.

There is still a perception

that we are a ruined city, all you

HEALTHCARE PETITION

More than 400 people have signed

The petition is calling for the site

a space for community support

teams.

A Ruapuna Community Liaison

Committee has been set up to

The Sumner Lifeboat has reinstated

its siren after five years. The

original siren, which alerted people

Demand for big homes increases

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE DEMAND for mansions

and large homes in Christchurch

is growing, fuelled by wealthy

people choosing to move to the

city from other parts of New

Zealand and from overseas.

The spike goes against the

trends, as property prices for

most Canterbury homes are flattening

out.

Bayleys real estate agent Adam

Heazlewood has several large

homes currently listed on the

market.

He had noticed a marked increase

in the number of inquiries

from people living out of town, as

well as a lot of interest from people

in Australia and the United

Kingdom.

He believed progress on the

rebuild, especially of the central

city, had contributed to the interest.

The things I’m hearing from

day to day are a lot more positive

about what Christchurch is going

to offer,” he said.

The property figures were

released by Trade Me yesterday,

and compare the average asking

prices last month to those at the

same time last year.

Property prices have risen significantly

each year since

the earthquakes, but the latest

figures show the growth may be

slowing.

They show the average price

for medium-sized, three to fourbedroom

homes in Christchurch

rose less than one per cent in that

time, to $491,650.

But the average price for large

homes with five bedrooms or

more rose more than 12 per

cent, from about $650,000 to

$732,450.

Harcourts Christchurch

business development manager

Mike Mullen said there had been

a lot of interest in bigger or

higher priced homes.

He said there had been a lot of

inquiries from overseas buyers,

and a tighter market with fewer

properties available could also

contribute.

The pressure’s certainly there,

and anything that is a reasonable

property certainly has a lot of

interest in it.”

He said the Harcourts sales

figures also showed the rise in

prices across the market were

slowing, but it did not track the

difference between larger and

smaller homes.

Why do post-quake cost so much?

Alastair Miles

•From page 1

“It’s not builders pilfering the

system or taking advantage.

There are a lot of builders working

extremely hard who won’t

make money.”

Because of the demand for

labour, many new builders had

to hire less skilled workers,

which often meant mistakes

were made and had to be fixed,

he said.

Although some tradespeople

were driving big new trucks, that

did not necessarily reflect big

profits, he said.

He said those who had not

prepared for the rise in expenses

were now struggling.

Many of the flash new trucks

were leased, and had been repossessed

as businesses had gone

under, he said.

There are a lot of builders

who aren’t great at using their

money wisely, and when they see

a positive cashflow they spend

it. So it’s not actually a reflection

potentially of them making

money, they’re just confident of

a good work stream and go and

splash out.”

Builders who were doing well

were making a profit because

they were taking on more

volume of work, not because

their margins had gone up, he

said.

As the residential rebuild work

plateaued, he expected building

prices to drop slightly, although

many of the increased costs

would stay the same.

“As the market quietens you’re

going to get more people competing

for less work, so you will

probably see potential dropping

of rates. We are seeing that now

with trades like painters, Gibstoppers,

bricklayers, tilers. We’re

getting cheaper rates coming

through.”

Booze-beating brain implants

• By Jamie Morton

TWO Christchurch people

have had tiny devices implanted

in their brains in a world first

experiment to beat alcoholics’

cravings.

The study, led by the University

of Otago’s

Professor Dirk De

Ridder (right),

is the first in

the world to use

implants to target

craving processes

in the brain to

combat alcoholism

and, if successful, could

result in a new form of intervention.

This week, Prof De Ridder,

a neurosurgeon at Dunedin

Hospital, inserted implants in

two patients from Christchurch,

bringing the number of participants

in his study to six.

By the end of the year, he

hoped to have recruited 10

patients.

He is also introducing newly

redesigned implants, cuttingedge

neuro-stimulators specially

made for the trials by United

States-based St Jude Medical,

which allow him to study a

wider range of signals sent from

the implant to specific circuits

in the brain that controlled cravings.

“Basically, it means that I’ve

now got more languages with

which to communicate with the

brain, which hopefully should

improve the outcome.”

The technology is aimed at

those whose health had been severely

impaired by alcohol, and

who had tried every other nonsurgical

treatment available.

Over recent times, scientists

have increasingly been exploring

whether subtly electrically

stimulating certain parts of the

brain could inhibit signals that

fuelled cravings.

The main problem with current

stimulators is that they are

derived from pacemaker technology,

and the heart is a relatively

simple organ to stimulate,

whereas the brain is somewhat

more complex.

“That’s why we’ve had to push

the technology to create the bigger

versatility – or enable more

languages – that might improve

the result.”

Researchers in Germany have

trialled implants to combat alcohol

addiction but most of the

participants had relapsed.

However, that study had

targeted reward processes in the

brain, rather than cravings, he

said.

Cravings, stress and cues –

such as walking past a bar or

seeing alcohol in the supermarket

– were the three main

reasons why 80 per cent of

people with alcohol addictions

relapsed.

“So you have to target one

of those three. You can’t do

anything about cues, and you

can treat stress but that probably

isn’t so efficient, so that’s why we

opted to go after cravings.’’

Results of the study have so

far been promising: none of the

participants have abused alcohol

since surgery, and two had also

been able to quit smoking.

In Brief

MAN SENTENCED AFTER

INDECENT ACT

A Christchurch man caught

masturbating at a teenage

girls’ softball game has been

sentenced to 12-months intensive

supervision. Martin Allen Graham

appeared in the district court on

Tuesday on charges of committing

an indecent act and possession

of cannabis. He was smoking

cannabis before turning up to the

game in March at Cowles Stadium.

He watched the girls playing

while masturbating for about five

minutes until he was interrupted

and ran off but was caught by

police, who found a small amount

of cannabis in his possession.

Final countdown for SCIRT programme

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and

retaining walls is now 91% complete and will finish in December.

Almost 80% of our repair programme is focused on the city’s

underground pipe networks.

SCIRT has replaced 715km of pipes – the distance of a return trip

between Christchurch and Dunedin. These pipes are now invisibly doing

their important job below ground.

SCIRT has also repaired more than 120 bridges; this is 98% of the

overall SCIRT bridge repair programme.

After SCIRT, The Christchurch City Council and NZ Transport Agency

will continue their programmes of ongoing repairs.

Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the

struggling in the

post-earthquake

city.

Manager Jolyon

White (left) said

they should lead

by example.

“Yes, those rates

are wrong, but

we as a society are accepting

of that. We are a society of too

much with an endless acceptance

of too little. I would have less

of a problem with people being

highly paid if they weren’t also

leaving people at the bottom end

with insufficient [amounts] to

raise their families on.”

Canterbury’s average income

is $30,100, and 35.8 per cent have

an annual income of $20,000

or less, according to the 2013

census.

But both DCL and Otakaro

said they had to pay market

rates in order to attract the right

people to the roles of rebuilding

the city.

Neither could provide salary

bands.

DCL chief executive Rob Hall

said: “To attract top candidates

who will make a real difference

for Christchurch and deliver

results in their areas of expertise,

DCL must offer competitive

market salaries.”

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

the city council did not set the

salaries and equating the average

salary was mis-leading for

DCL because there were only 14

people.

“If anyone needs to take

the lead on this, it’s the state

sector, where remuneration of

government department officials

continues to drive expectations,”

she said.

Crs Raf Manji, Phil Clearwater

and Yani Johanson said they

would not comment on DCL

salaries.

But Cr Johanson said: “At a

general level, I personally believe

that council should be considering

the issue of, and reporting

on pay relativity, across the

organisation and encouraging its

companies to do the same.”

Otakaro’s staffing structure, released

to The Star, states it has 90

employees – much trimmer than

Cera’s 357 in December 2014.

It has six departments with

an emphasis on project management.

Otakaro’s average salary is

higher than that of Cera in 2015

which was $109,910.

If it was a Government department,

it would be second only to

the State Services Commission

on $125,917.

An Otakaro spokesman said a

comparison with other Government

departments would not be

“meaningful” as it was a Crown

company.

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Gerry

Brownlee would not comment

as it was “a matter for Otakaro”.

But Labour MP Megan Woods

said the salaries were “high for

Christchurch” but the real test

was whether it was value for

money.

“He (Mr Brownlee) can’t hide

behind the fact it is a Crownowned

company to avoid answering

questions and to be held

accountable,” she said.

I believe the

elections are

important for all

How sharing office space

Shared spaces, co-working, hot-desking,

desk-surfing. Whatever you call it, there is no denying

it’s a growing trend. Gabrielle Stuart spoke to some of

the many Christchurch business people moving out of

their offices and choosing instead to rent a desk

WITH THE

central city

cordoned off after

the February,

2011, earthquake,

hundreds of

Cantabrians

began working

from home.

Rebecca Tavete (above) was

one of them.

She was expecting a sense of

freedom – working in comfort at

home, at her own pace, without

the stress of trying to make it to

the office.

“I definitely wasn’t prepared to

feel isolated and distracted.

“It was a sense of freedom

to start with, but it gets on top

of you when you’re not able to

talk with those around you, and

bounce ideas off them. Your

thought process slows down and

you feel out of the loop.”

She also discovered housework

and pets weren’t the only distractions

when working at home.

“Friends and family think

you’re at home, so you’re not

working. So they’ll pop in, which

is great, but it’ll take up an hour,

often your most productive

hour.”

Last week, she held the first

open house at Argo, the coworking

space she is creating in

New Brighton, which she plans

to open officially next month.

Her vision was to create the

space she wanted for her business.

Somewhere you could have

the flexibility of working from

home, where “you can pop out

of the office and go for a surf”,

while keeping a network of

creative business people to work

alongside and having access to

meeting rooms and spaces where

clients can be hosted.

Argo will be the newest coworking

space in Christchurch,

but far from the first.

It follows C-Lab on St Asaph

St, which opened in 2013, the

Ministry of Awesome’s expanded

Awesome HQ and HQ+, and The

Collect on Manchester St, which

opened last year.

By September, national coworking

network BizDojo plans

to open a huge shared space in

the top two-storeys of the Kathmandu

building, where up to 150

people can co-work.

But in spite of the number of

spaces opening, the demand is

growing faster.

can be good for business

SPACE: Areas to meet clients, like this one at The Collect

co-working space, are some of the things people often miss

when trying to run a business from home.

PHOTO: NAOMI HAUSSMAN

She works as a freelance event

producer, and keeping a conventional

office didn’t make sense as

she often had to travel overseas to

Australia or Hong Kong for her

work.

But working from home,

as “a freelancer at the kitchen

bench trying to be professional

on Skype calls”, wasn’t working

either.

“I wanted a space where I could

feel instantly at home, a hub of

creativity where I could spark

new ideas for the city,” she said.

There were risks involved in

co-working.

Just one person who did not fit

in or work well with others could

change the environment completely,

so she said she had to be

careful about who she accepted.

She ran background checks on

people coming in, and had a trial

period when they signed up so if

it didn’t work for either side they

could back out.

One of the attractions of The

Collect was the way residents

shared their knowledge with one

another, taking turns to host

workshops on anything from

digital marketing to how to optimise

your website.

For someone going out on their

own, that kind of knowledge

could be invaluable, she said.

But it wasn’t just owneroperators

or freelancers using

co-working spaces.

With six staff, Alan Cox’s business

Fluent Scientific is too big to

fit the usual bill for co-working

spaces, but still too small to make

keeping its own office work.

Problems around office space

could completely “hamstring”

the growth of small businesses in

Christchurch, he said.

He said the cost of signing a

lease and fitting out a building

was huge for a small company,

and even worse in the postearthquake

environment where

there was more demand for

central offices.

“You really don’t know how big

you’re going to be 12 months, or

even 18 months, out. So you’re

left in a catch 22 situation, where

you may be too big for where

you are now, but it would be the

wrong thing to do to sign up to a

longer lease on more space than

you might need.”

Even if a small business did

find its own office, he said isolation

was another problem.

With just a small number of

staff, it was harder to build the

social connections and networks

needed to make a business thrive,

he said.

He has worked for big companies

around the world and on

his own small start ups, and said

co-working combined “the best

of both worlds”.

He is based alongside three

other larger businesses at the

Ministry of Awesome HQ+ on

Madras St.

It runs alongside the Awesome

HQ on St Asaph St, where about

30 businesses are based and others

“hot desk” temporarily.

Chief awesome officer Lauren

Merritt said the space was allowing

people to start businesses

without as much risk.

MORE SPACE: Another

meeting space at The Collect

co-working office..

PHOTO: NAOMI HAUSSMAN

The permanent spaces are relatively

cheap, so it is not another

barrier to start. People think if

I fail it’s just a month-to-month

contract, so it makes it really easy

for people to test out their ides or

start a business.”

Rather than competing, many

new business owners wanted to

collaborate and help one another,

she said.

Sharing space allowed them to

do that much more effectively.

“I think it’s huge, because it’s

showing a new way of business

is possible. You don’t have to go

work for a large firm and work

your way up.”

Viewpoint

Working group looking

at Cathedral’s future

I KNOW there is considerable

interest in seeing progress on

the Christ Church Cathedral,

and I’m confident we’re

moving positively toward

that goal. Ultimately,

this is a decision for the

Anglican Church, as they

own the Cathedral, but

the Government is doing

everything it can to support

a process where a sound,

accurately-costed decision can

be made.

To that end, a working group

is considering options for the

re-instatement or replacement

of the Cathedral and will, once

a consensus has been reached,

recommend the best way

forward.

On June 14, I – in conjunction

with Bishop Victoria Matthews

– appointed the working

group. Together with the

Church Property Trust, we

established a Christ Church

Cathedral Working Group

with the skills and experience

to thoroughly consider

re-instatement options, how

it could be done and what the

different options will cost.

The group met for the first

Gerry Brownlee

time last month, and is already

compiling a range of technical

information and hearing from

experts such as those working

on projects of a similar nature.

A report by Miriam Dean

QC last year confirmed reinstatement

of the Cathedral

could be achieved through a

combination of repair, restoration,

reconstruction and seismic

strengthening, but with a

caveat around costs.

There is strong public interest

in what is happening to this

iconic building, and I know

people want to see the Church

Property Trust able to reach

a decision so that the city can

move forward.

The working group will be

reporting back on a way

forward by November 28 2016

and it will provide a final report

to the Crown and Church

Property Trust by December

7 2016.

We have given the group this

time to allow for a thorough

consideration of the options.

I’m confident from their

initial work, that the group

– which has appointees from

the Crown, Church Property

Trust and Great Christchurch

Buildings Trust – has the appropriate

mix of skills and experience

to deliver an appropriate

outcome.

I would encourage interested

parties to allow the working

group to get on with their

work and support them when

required.

Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

A reader responds to

The Star story in which

Philip Burdon and Jim

Anderton said they

have been gagged from

talking publicly about the

future of Christ Church

Cathedral.

Peter Banens – Gabrielle

Stuart wrote a very interesting

article in The Star on July 7 about

Christ Church Cathedral, headed

“Cathedral group say they are

muzzled”.

I think all those involved are

passing the buck. Philip Burdon

and Jim Anderton are right to

complain about being “muzzled”.

Gerry Brownlee, the prime

minister, his cabinet, the Anglican

Diocese, including Bishop Victoria

among others, have all had fingers

pointed at them.

Some have done very little.

While we put up with no

action,why not cover up the gaping

hole at the front of the cathedral?

The Star

David Marra – John Key and

his cabinet face an awful moral

dilemma. On one hand, real estate

barons, bankers and property

investors, and upwardly mobile

home-owners, who exploit untaxed

capital gains to climb the property

ladder, are over represented among

their political support base. On the

other hand, first home buyers, tenants

paying unaffordable rents, and

the homeless are less well represented

among Key supporters. John Key

and his cabinet have a moral choice

to make between his political supporters’

private property rights, and

tenants, the homeless and first home

buyers’ right to affordable housing.

To date, Key and his cabinet have

performed endless political contortions

to show they are addressing the

worsening housing crises, while aggressively

defending his electorates’

private property rights and rights

to profiteer from untaxed capital

gains, fuelled by run-away housing

inflation and unaffordable tax-payer

subsidised rents.

Fast food outlet concern

Tracie

Charnock

is a parent

concerned

about the

fast food

outlets being

built so close

to Linwood

Avenue

School and other schools in

Christchurch. She writes about

what concerns she has with

this and what she wants to see

change

After a KFC was built straight

across the road from my son’s

primary school, I thought, is this

okay?

You can see the building and its

advertisement from the school’s

classrooms and playground. And the

smell is strong enough to smell from

the school also.

So I spoke to the principal

to find that schools don’t have a say

of what gets built in the radius of a

school.

This to me was concerning. I put

my concerns out there through the

media and started a petition against

fast food outlets being built in close

proximity of schools.

Since I started my petition back in

late May, and put it out there to the

media this, has been a topic of conversation

with large support for.

I have gathered 272 signatures to

date and just started a online petition

at www.change.org “No Fast Food

Built Near Schools.”

As a parent I support healthy

eating for my children and the

schools promote healthy eating

in schools. Yet, I feel this is

undermined when the fast food

chains can build so close to a school.

I feel these fast food chains are

targeting young children and low

decile areas, and the research seems

to back it up.

Researcher Peter Day and Geohealth

lab co-director Dr Jamie

Pearce (University of Edinburgh)

conducted a study at the University

of Canterbury in 2011 about fast food

outlets clustered around schools.

The study carried out found that

fast food outlets are five and a half

times more likely to build near

schools than other areas. He also

found the proximity of such outlets

were highest around low decile

schools.

Since this I have had meetings with

Labour MP Ruth Dyson and we have

had a delegation hearing to put our

concerns to the board which has now

led to a hearing with the city council.

I would like a bylaw passed to stop

these fast food chains from building

their outlets in close proximity of

schools. Or give schools a say of what

gets built within a 800m radius.

Affordable housing

LAST WEEKEND, the

Labour Party turned 100. We

had much to celebrate, but

it was also a time to think

about what the next Labour

Government needs to do.

Nearly two decades into

the 21 st Century, one of our

important jobs is one Micky

Savage would understand –

we need to make sure there

are dry, warm and affordable

houses for people.

My electorate office in Hoon

Hay has a steady stream of

people struggling to access

adequate housing. It is because

of what we are seeing on the

ground that Labour used its

birthday party to announce a

comprehensive plan to tackle

housing issues.

We’ll set up an Affordable

Housing Authority to build

more affordable homes for

people to buy, undertake major

revitalisation programmes

and crack down on speculators.

We’ll also end National’s

state house sell-off and stop

using Housing New Zealand

as a cash cow, instead refocusing

it on what it does best

– looking after people in need.

In Christchurch, we have

an exciting opportunity to get

the development of affordable

housing going really fast. We

already have special legislation

in place and there are agencies

like Regenerate Christchurch

who could hit the ground running

on this.

Take the East Frame anchor

project. Part of the Government’s

blueprint plan to bring

20,000 people back in to the

inner city but we have yet to

see any sign of construction

beginning.

Back in December 2015, a

deal was signed with Fletcher

Residential to develop nearly

1000 townhouses in central

Christchurch. The East Frame

should have been well underway

already but they are waiting

for enough pre-sales.

A Labour Government

would not be content to sit

back and watch this in-action.

We would work alongside the

parties to underwrite the risk

and get some actual houses

built.

Innovation, and not the

business-as-usual thinking

of the current Government is

what is required.

John Key said the apartments

would cost up to

$900,000, but that the pricing

was for Fletcher’s to determine.

National are completely out

of touch if they think townhouses

costing as much as

$900,000 are within the reach

of most Cantabrians.

They have said they will not

do anything to ensure that

there are affordable options.

We will. Labour’s plan will

build homes that Cantabrian

families can actually afford to

buy. We will deliver east frame

townhouses for $300,000-

$500,000.

The differences between

Labour and National are clear.

Labour will get cracking and

build affordable houses.

Massive savings

Peter Simmonds,

unemployed, of

Riccarton: I don’t want

him as mayor. I think he

is a good political activist,

somebody on the outside,

criticising institutions

and people and making

fair comment but as

far as running the local

council where he has to

interact with a range of

organisations including

probably bodies with

a lot of National party

members on them, I don’t

think it is a wise thing

for him to be in charge

of the council. A few

years ago we had a lot of

trouble with division on

the council and I think

he might produce that

division again. I don’t

give him a dog’s show

going up against Lianne

Dalziel.

Helene Philpott, retired,

of Russley: I think he’s a

bit too radical. I would

say no, he doesn’t stand

much chance against

Lianne Dalziel.

Margaret Marshall,

manager, of Sockburn:

No, I think there are a few

others that need to go there

instead of him. I don’t

think he has much chance

against Lianne. Females all

the way – it’s a trend at the

moment! No, I wouldn’t

vote for him.

Peter Smith, retired, of

Ilam: That would be a

disaster. I should hope

he doesn’t stand much of

a chance. I would hope

people realise his way

out thoughts.

Ben Seddon-Smith,

student, of Ilam: To be

honest I don’t know

how I would feel

about him as mayor of

Christchurch. He has

proved that he is quite

politically active with

the Springboks tour but

other than that I don’t

know too much about

him. Lianne Dalziel is

definitely the favourite,

but we will just have to

wait and see.

Prior to the earthquakes the city’s external identity

was partly built on its “old English” heritage. With the

earthquakes claiming many of these buildings, we

asked, what should our new identity be?

Robyn Cahill, banker, of

Halswell: At the moment

it’s a lovely garden city. I’d

like to see it maintained

to what it has always

been, a vibrant and lovely

city. And for it to stay the

Garden City.

Kevin Wicks, foreman,

of Dallington: We need

an image that welcomes

everyone. The central city

is pretty important in that

it can have everything. It

shouldn’t just be business

or tourist attractions, I

think it needs something

for everyone. We don’t

want only tourists to use

it or only business people

to use the city. We want to

invite everyone back into

the city, I think the way

we can do that is by having

it open to businesses

and to cafes.

Ellisha Foon, student, of

Riccarton: Christchurch

is a city with potential

and is thriving because it

is a place where innovation

is blossoming, but to

me it will always be the

Garden City. It’s unlike

any place it New Zealand

and although buildings

will change, the natural

environment shouldn’t.

Paige Doak, retail

manager, of Riccarton:

It’s beautiful and friendly

in Christchurch. I like

the Garden City image

but going forward I don’t

think we have to stick to

a certain image. People

always comment about

how beautiful the city is

with the parks and cool

wee walkways and things.

I don’t think we should

put a label on it because

then we will feel like we

have to stick to it. Our city

is beautiful and unique

and I think we have to

keep that in mind. We

shouldn’t try and make

Christchurch look like

other places around the

world.

Tim McMaster, student,

of Sydenham: I don’t

think we should put a

label on it. Why do we

have to be the Garden

City or the cycle city

or something else to

promote us? We promote

ourselves as clean green

New Zealand so I think

we should continue to

promote that more as the

city redevelops and moves

forward.

Ashleigh Johnson,

student, of Leeston: I

like the Garden City as it

is. We have an awesome

opportunity for it to

grow and develop as the

rebuild moves forward.

We still have heritage but

we have new buildings

coming so that’s really

exciting to see the city

develop. I think the

inner-city is mixing the

old and new together

really well.

School’s long wait over

Redcliffs

School

principal

Rose

McInerney

talks

about how

it felt to

hear Education Minister

Hekia Parata announce the

school would remain open

It’s quite hard to explain the feelings

of an interminable wait that

was finally coming to an end.

The Redcliffs board of trustees

had now had quite a few meetings

with Minister Hekia Parata

to meaningfully engage on the

importance of our school remaining

open but this was to be

the mother of all meetings.

So much preparation had gone

into what this day would reveal

and there was a strong weight of

responsibility in my heart and

I’m certain in the hearts of those

with me.

Half of the board – Kent

France, Mark Robberds, Steph

Grieve and I met at the airport

bright and early and ready to

go. We faced the very interested

media with our ongoing positive

approach to how well we had

problem solved the Minister’s

concerns and felt hopeful for a

change in decision for the Redcliffs

School community. This

issue had now reached out to all

New Zealanders and we knew

many had a deep interest in

what Thursday’s result would be.

We travelled to Wellington

leaving our children in the confident

and professional hands

of our staff and the other half

of the board of trustees. They

carried on their school day as

normally as they possibly could,

while we boarded our flight with

the promise of any news coming

straight to them the minute that

we had it. So much invested in

this process and so many people

willing us to have good news for

our community’s future.

On arrival in Wellington

we taxied to Parliament, had a

quick coffee, and again were met

by more media going in to the

Beehive.

We announced our arrival at

reception and sat down to have

our last chat about our approach

for the two potential outcomes.

So much time had been given to

this final submission and it was

truly crunch time.

Before long we were welcomed

into the Minister’s office with

her large team of advisers and

we waited for Minister Parata’s

response with baited breath.

While we had been banking

on a positive decision when it

actually came through there

were enormous hugs both in

Wellington and soon after in

Christchurch.

A united team of problem

solving, invested, tenacious, determined

individuals had come

together and saved our Redcliffs

School from closure. A feeling

I will never forget and so proud

to share in that piece of very

important history.

RELIEVED:

Education Minister

Hekia Parata

announced that

Redcliffs School will

remain open.

Big community

effort pays off

Green MP

Eugenie

Sage says

the Redcliffs

School decision

was great news

Congratulations

to everyone in

the Redcliffs School community

for the sustained and successful

advocacy to keep Redcliffs School

as a local school. Standing up for

what you believe in helps create

change in politics.

Overturning Education Minister

Hekia Parata’s interim decision

last November that Redcliffs

School would close by the end

of this year has taken a massive

effort. It has involved inspired

leadership from the school board

of trustees, a determined effort

by parents, energy from students

and creative engagement with the

media and the wider community.

The Minister’s decision will ensure

that Redcliffs School, either

on the Main Rd site or another

site such as Barnett Park, remains

the hub of its community.

Elsewhere in education, the

news has been less welcome.

In a surprise Budget move, the

Government decided to freeze

funding for schools’ operational

grants.

This means there will be more

pressure on parents to “donate”

even more for their children’s

education. This puts quality education

under strain and erodes

the right to a free education.

Operational funding goes

into essentials such as heating,

computers for students, learning

support, property maintenance,

and relief teachers.

We need regular funding increases

to keep up with increased

costs. Between 2010 and 2014

parents forked out $791.3 million

to subsidise their children’s education

with donations.

Redcliffs School Fair is one of

the largest and most successful in

Christchurch in raising funds to

help students learn. Lower decile

schools will suffer the most, as

their ability to fundraise is more

constrained.

As well as protecting the right

of students to be able to attend

their local neighbourhood

school, we need to ensure that

funding for education keeps up

with inflation.

A CHRISTCHURCH start-up

developing cat’s eyes that can

collect big data on traffic and

conditions on our roads is one

of 10 to be selected for fasttracking

through Vodafone’s

innovation lab.

SolarBright is one of 10 startups

and SMEs chosen to take part

in Vodafone xone, a business accelerator

designed to nurture the

best ideas and Kiwi talent in the

research and commercialisation

of world-class technology.

The company has been around

for nine years and its founders,

husband and wife team Pat and

Nicola Martin, have focused on

solar road-side lighting.

Pat Martin has since been

designing cat’s eyes that can

track big data and transmit it to

a device that can build a picture

of the roading conditions like

weather, traffic flows and air

quality.

Mr Martin said he was interested

in the opportunities Vodafone

presented in terms of taking his

design to the world.

“Vodafone is a beast all over

the world. We’re trying to take

our technology globally . . . so

to have such a beast is a perfect

partnership.”

Connectivity is a key factor in

his cat’s eyes reliability, so having

access to a closed network in

Vodafone xone for trials would

be useful he said.

Vodafone’s consumer director

Matt Williams said the 10 companies

were selected from more

than 170 applications.

“We wanted to spread our

wings a bit and get involved

with a broader set of companies.

There’s a bit of golden age of entrepreneurship

in New Zealand.”

Each company will receive a

total package worth more than

$150,000, including

$25,000 in seed-funding and

mentoring as part of a six-month

programme.

Vodafone xone and SolarBright

are based in central Christchurch.

“Christchurch is a real technology

and innovation hub for New

Zealand,” Mr Williams said.

INNOVATIVE: Nicola and

Pat Martin have designed

cat’s eyes which can track

and transmit data (below).

There’s a huge amount of

energy and activity there.”

Callaghan Innovation has

committed $900,000 to Vodafone

xone over the next three years to

help fund the Innovation Lab for

research and development. The

facility, containing specialised

technology worth $19 million,

will be open to the xone companies.

Household debt at high level

• By Simon Hartley

LOW INTEREST rates and

windfalls from escalating

house prices have household

debt sitting at higher levels

than before the 2007-08 global

financial crisis, highlighting

the economy’s vulnerability to

unfavourable changes.

While New Zealand’s household

debt levels have continued

to break records, the debt

servicing costs remain low, most

lending is secured against assets

and lenders have been independently

tightening access credit,

Westpac senior economist Satish

Ranchhod said.

“One of the key issues

confronting the New Zealand

economy is a build-up of debt

in the household sector. Over

2015, household debt rose

to levels higher than those

reached prior to the financial

crisis,’’ he said.

The latest Reserve Bank

figures showed the trend had

continued in early 2016 and

household debt was now at levels

equivalent to 163 per cent

of annual household disposable

income, Mr Ranchhod said.

“A key contributor to this

trend has been historically low

interest rates.

The present low interest

rates had provided a powerful

boost to asset prices, particularly

for housing, he said.

“And as has historically

been the case, strength in the

housing market has seen home

owners spending some of the

windfall they perceive when

the value of their house rises,

while aspiring buyers must

borrow more,’’ Mr Ranchhod

said.

The net effect was an increase

in both borrowing and

spending, he said.

Compared with other developed

economies, household

debt-to-GDP in New Zealand

was “relatively high’’ and was

consistent with strong growth

in house prices.

Contributing factors to the

debt trend include recordlow

interest rates, which have

boosted housing demand,

and a housing supply that has

not kept up with population

growth, especially in Auckland.

These conditions have

made it very attractive for

investors to purchase residential

property using debt,’’ Mr

Ranchhod said.

The strong growth in house

prices also meant owner-occupiers

were having to borrow

more to purchase housing.

Mr Ranchhod said “trends

in debt levels over time can

alert us to the build-up of

risk’’.

Some pick-up in debt levels

was not a problem for an

economy and was actually a

sign monetary policy was operating

as expected, he said.

The Reserve Bank had set

interest rates at low levels to

boost domestic activity, which

was helping offset headwinds

in externally focused parts

of the economy and households’

appetite for debt would

continue to support economic

activity for the next few years,

he said.

However, rising household

debt raised important concerns

for the longer-term

economic outlook.

Mauger had to get the

It has been really amazing, and

quite emotional. We’ve always

said this is a real privilege to be

part of, but at the ceremony on

Sunday with the full powhiri and

people travelling from across the

country to be part of it, it was

really humbling. The amount of

positive people power has been

incredible. It makes you proud to

be a Kiwi.

So take me back to the beginning.

Where did this whole

thing start?

It was Christmas Day. We

always get together as a family

over Christmas and talk about

all sorts of stuff. Who’s in the

Crusaders team, how the Tactix

are doing, education in New

Zealand, that kind of thing. Duane

and I had both seen the ad

for the beach, so there was a bit

of banter, saying we could buy

it for New Zealand. Initially we

thought we could get 100 people

to put in quite a lot of money,

then we said what if everyone

pitched in a couple of bucks?

So a lot of people have these

kind of crazy ideas – how did

it get from that point to a real

campaign?

TEAMWORK:

Christchurch

brothers-inlaw

Duane

Major and

Adam

Gard’ner

(right),

who ran a

successful

campaign

raising almost

$2.28m to

buy an Abel

Tasman

beach. ​

Well, it was really our families

who said ‘okay, why don’t you do

anything about it?’ A couple of

weeks went past and we digested

the idea and mulled it over. We

weren’t afraid of failing, we

thought we could do it. But the

toughest thing was showing

ourselves to the public, saying

this is us, this is what we’re

trying to do. It makes you quite

vulnerable. But after a couple of

weeks we went for a walk with

our families and it came up, and

it was a real ‘I will if you will’

moment. We both put messages

on our Facebook pages and had

positive feedback so we thought

why not? In the first few days,

only a few pledges were made, so

we thought okay, oh well. Then

we got a little bit of media attention

and it blew up from there.

I’ll always remember that moment

we hit $70,000. I thought

that is a lot of money, we might

be able to pull this off.

And you did it all around

full-time work?

Yes, Duane does youth work

for a church, and I work for Tennis

NZ and the Waimairi Tennis

Club, but both our work gave us

space to get it done. We both still

had to work, but we went into

over-drive after work until 1am

or 2am sometimes. I basically

based myself at Duane’s after

work for a few weeks, but both

our families were incredibly

understanding. They were a huge

part of it, but also gave us our

space when we needed it.

Freeview 40 | Live and on demand at ctv.co.nz | facebook.com/canterburytv

that now belongs to us all

And where were you when you

heard the news you had won the

beach?

Well, Duane had gone on Paul

Henry’s show that morning and

said everyone’s invited to our

place for the announcement, so

we had big news crews there and

complete strangers wandering up

the driveway, saying I’m here for

the party, which was awesome.

We had a sausage sizzle, and the

coffee machine going. But we

hadn’t heard anything, so we

were getting ready to make an

announcement on national TV

that we didn’t make it, when I got

an email saying hold on. It was

about 10.30 that night that we

finally heard and, by then, most

people had headed home. We

always wanted to share the whole

story with everyone, so our first

instinct was how are we going to

message that. But we did take a

few minutes to have a few hugs,

there were pretty big smiles on

our faces.

Were there people who made

donations that particularly

stood out to you?

That’s really hard to answer,

because they really all did. We

had people donating 50 cents for

each grandchild, for example,

SOLD: The Awaroa Inlet beach is now part of the Abel Tasman

National Park, and will be maintained for the public by the

Department of Conservation.

and those donations were just

as important as the big pledges.

There were small companies and

cafes and schools who got behind

it, so when we reached the total

of 39,000 pledges, really there are

thousands more people behind

that, because some pledges represented

groups. The Government

were really generous, as well

as people who gave us advice.

Givealittle was amazing and did

a huge amount of work on it, and

the media were with us all the

way.

So tell me about some of your

favourite memories on the

beach?

Well, we’ve both spent time up

here. Duane, a youth worker has

done a lot of work here, and he

and my wife, because they are

siblings, have taken groups up

here. We holiday up here, too, so

there have been some wonderful

family times for us up here and

all over the Abel Tasman, but I’ve

got to say Sunday would be pretty

hard to beat. When Duane spoke

on Sunday, he said all his kids

have been in the womb on the

beach, and he and his brother,

Kerry, who died a few years ago,

kayaked into the beach. That is

part of why keeping the land for

everyone is so important, because

it provides memories and stories

that keep us connected.

Countdown to Rio

Shaw’s third chance at gold

The Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games are less

than a month away. Sports reporter Gordon

Findlater counts down to Rio, highlighting some

of our brightest talents. This week we look at

Canterbury’s Brad Shaw who hopes to claim a

medal in his third games with the Black Sticks.

• By Gordon Findlater

HURRY

LIMITED STOCK!

BRAD SHAW is hoping its a

case of being third time lucky at

the Rio Olympics.

After what he describes as

inconsistent performances from

New Zealand squads in Beijing

and London, he’s hopeful the

Black Sticks have the right plan

going into this year’s games.

“At previous games, we’ve

played really well, but have

struggled to get results against

weaker opposition we should be

beating. In Beijing we could only

manage a draw with China, and

in London we lost our opening

game to Korea. We should be

beating them nine out of 10

times,” said Shaw.

Now an experienced Olympian,

he is also aware of the foreign

environment players must

be prepared for. He described

his first experience in Beijing as

eye opening, even to the point of

seeking a sports psychologist a

week into the event.

“It’s not something you get

used to, you just have to be

prepared. The media hype and

Olympic village are huge.”

Shaw claimed his spot in New

Zealand hockey folk-law in 2008,

when New Zealand faced Argentina

in an Olympic qualifier. The

match went into sudden-death

extra time. Shaw grabbed the

match-winning goal for the

Black Sticks, booking their spot

in the Beijing Olympics.

“I haven’t scored too many

goals in my career, but seem to

have a knack for scoring memorable

ones.”

The defender comes from

a proud hockey family. Older

brother Hayden Shaw represented

the Black Sticks at the

2004 and 2008 Olympics and

was known as the drag-flick shot

expect during his career.

Brad Shaw began playing

hockey at age four, playing in

the local park. He played his first

competitive hockey for club-side

Selwyn, which his father also

played for. Shaw still plays for the

club now known as Southern following

the amalgamation of the

Selwyn and Sydenham.

While at Shirley Boys’ High,

he helped the school during a

successful period for its hockey

team. He playing alongside the

likes of former New Zealand

international cricketer Michael

Papps, who he described as a

handy mid-fielder.

Canterbury’s provincial men’s

team didn’t acquire the services

of Shaw until 2004. Prior to

that, he travelled north to play

for Midlands, due to what he

described as a different view in

playing styles to the Canterbury

set-up at the time.

Former Black Sticks assistant

coach Andrew Hastie was Shaw’s

first Canterbury men’s coach and

was impressed with the player he

had seen come through various

age group teams.

“He was a really strong player.

Uncompromising. He’s one of

those guy’s that always plays

with his heart. He wears it on

his sleeve and he just goes for it,”

said Hastie.

Shaw has since become Canterbury

captain, a role Hastie

believes the 33-year-old thrives

in.

“He’s our go-to player, always

gives 100 percent. He plays the

game in the right spirit and gives

everything on the field.”

The 2004 Champions Trophy

was Shaw’s first international

tournament, making his debut

against Pakistan. Hardly given

the ideal start to his international

career, he first took to

the field for 30 seconds while a

team-mate addressed a broken

shoe lace.

Since then, he has gone on to

represent New Zealand at two

Olympic Games, two Commonwealth

Games and a Hockey

World Cup.

Being a teacher at St Andrew’s

Preparatory School, having a

family and an international

hockey career has been a fine

balancing act.

“My wife is [the one] to thank.

I’ve also taken a lot of time off

teaching through the second

and third terms of school to get

myself ready for Rio. It’s a big

decision to make with work, a

family and the Olympic Games,”

said Shaw.

When Shaw returns to his

Divide and conquer

AS A family of six,

planning a holiday can be

tricky.

Trying to book flights

in school holidays often

results in high prices,

terrible flight schedules,

and a logistical feat to find

accommodation (who can

easily house an extra six

people?) and car transport

(it can cost up to $1000 a

week to hire a seven-seater

vehicle). To be fair, it’s

often a better option to

simply stay at home.

These school holidays

we were tempted to do just

that. However, my eldest

two girls were dead set on

heading up to the North

Island to stay with their

grandparents and catch up

with cousins and friends.

While I scouted around

for deals, the cost to get us

all up there was exorbitant.

So, in a last minute decision,

we decided to divide

and conquer and send only

half of the family away

– my hubby and our two

eldest will spend a week in

Hawkes Bay, while I will

stay at home in Christchurch

with the twins.

Splitting the family for

holidays is not something

that I had ever envisaged,

but on reflection, it’s possibly

the best scenario in this

current stage of our lives.

While there is only a

four-year gap between

our eldest and youngest,

it’s considerable when it

comes to what we can do

as a family. Most activities

revolve around catering to

the lowest-aged denominator,

which means most of

what we do is based on

what a two-and-half year

old can handle.

This can sometimes lead

to frustration for our five

and six year old girls, who

are now at an age when

they are seeking to challenge

themselves further in

their everyday play.

So, when we were

presented with the idea

of dividing our family for

these holidays, it seemed

the best solution for everyone.

And with the break

now upon us, our big girls

are super excited about the

adventures ahead.

They will spend one

week on the farm with

their Dad, enjoying long

walks in the hills, tree

climbing, helping with

the animals and exploring

down at the creek.

They have movie and

theatre dates planned with

their cousins; birthday

parties and road trips to

visit their great-grandmother,

and no doubt, late

nights and impromptu

high-jinks that come with

being on holiday. They will

have flexibility, last-minute

options and no doubt will

extend themselves to their

limit.

That’s not to say the

twins and I won’t have

our own fun either. I will

be able to focus on the

age-appropriate activities

that I know they will love

doing – Tumble Times,

the museums, various

playgrounds around the

city, and otherwise, simply

wandering at the pace and

direction of two curious

toddlers.

I’m looking forward to

unstructured days without

drop-offs, pick-ups or

after school activities. Our

days will be filled with

slow and unplanned play,

pottering and spontaneous

adventure that I know

my Twiglets will love and

enjoy.

To that end: I think these

holidays will be a great hit

for everyone.

We will miss each other

terribly though. Skype

nights have already been

scheduled, and the big girls

have already made plans

for the fun they will all

have once they are reunited

with their little sisters.

Until then, it’s going to

be a quiet house – cooking

for three and having only

two kids to look after will

be quite a change. In that

sense, I guess a change will

be as good as a holiday!

Taste

Ever wondered

who is cooking

your food when

you go out to a

cafe or restaurant?

The Star continues

its series talking

with chefs.

Bishop Brothers

head chef –

Kathryn Ahu.

Up for any challenge

at work or home

• By Gabrielle Stuart

KATHRYN AHU was head chef

running her own kitchen before she had

even finished studying.

She was 19 and working at a hotel in

Hamilton, when the head chef and sous

chef both stood down at once.

The owner asked me if I wanted to

step up as head chef. I said: ‘Well, let me

just go home and talk to my parents’.”

After two years running the kitchen

she took a step back to accept a sous chef

job at the Hamilton Belgian Beer Cafe.

But within a year and a half she was

head chef there, this time running two

restaurants.

Moving to the top so fast meant she

had to learn quickly, but she said it also

kept her humble.

“I scrub my own rangehood and sweep

and mop the floor, so I would never ask

my staff to do something I wouldn’t do

myself. I think we’re all a team.”

About 12 years ago, she moved to

Christchurch, “following a man”.

Although the relationship didn’t work

out, she fell in love with Canterbury.

Taking a job at the Christchurch Gondola

Pinnacle Restaurant helped, as she

said the views were absolutely beautiful –

although nature could also be a problem.

“Sometimes you’d get a call saying you

have to get down in 10 minutes or you’ll

be stuck, because the wind’s picking up.

Once we did get stranded and had to

walk down.”

The challenges in her next role at Cafe

Izone in Rolleston were quite different –

attracting people to an industrial area,

creating a family-friendly menu and

mastering stonegrill.

But it won Best New Restaurant in the

first year open, and she said it grew in

popularity from there.

She started in March at the newlyopened

Bishop Brothers Public House, at

the former Farrington’s Tavern site.

She said the owners wanted to “step it

up a little, restaurant style”, while keeping

the suburban, homely flavour and

reasonable prices.

It was a challenge she was up for.

She said it was her love for food that

drove her, and her enjoyment of experimenting

with different flavours and

ingredients, both at work and at home.

“A lot of people say no, I don’t cook at

home, but I say if you have a passion for

cooking why wouldn’t you?”

With a partner who worked as a personal

trainer and was ex-army, she said

a lot of the meals she cooked after work

were big and hearty.

She enjoyed being part of rebuilding the

hospitality scene in Christchurch, but said

it was sad to see how much had been lost.

“You can always open another Mexican

restaurant or Italian restaurant, but

knowing people who have lost everything

is the sad thing.”

She said the way people dined out in

Christchurch had changed.

“I suppose it’s a comfort, when you can

go out and have a really lovely time and

enjoy your meal. I think we’re enjoying

life a bit more, because it was a huge

shock to the system that in a matter of

minutes something can be taken from

you so fast.”

Wales, when he spotted a tree he

couldn’t identify.

And what unfolded was the

discovery of a tree thought lost, for

hundreds of years.

This rare plant is happy in most

spots in the garden and is adaptable

to life in a large tub or pot; it would

make the perfect Christmas tree and

the ultimate gift for the gardener who

has everything.

These special plants don’t come

along every day, so treat yourself or

your garden with a piece of botanical

history.

VEGETABLES

Broad beans are cool customers that thrive

in the winter months. It’s a little too late

to sow seed now, but fat seedlings are

in the shops. Plant in a spot away from

strong winds, or if you have large planters

or containers, jam heaps in so you can be

feasting on them for Christmas. Harvest

yams now the frosts have sweetened up

the flavour. Once dug up, wash off any

soil and allow them to dry before storing

somewhere dry and dark. Keep a few of the

fattest ones for planting out in spring for

next year’s crop. The same goes for Jerusalem

artichokes. Now the stalks have died down, lift

them and store in the same way as yams.

STRAWBERRIES

Did you know the coldest months of the year

are when strawberry plants are initiating

fruiting buds for the upcoming season? The

cold temperatures trigger the development

of the fruit buds. This is one of the main

reasons strawberries are planted over winter,

to maximise the fruiting capacity. For existing

strawberry beds, remove any runners and

pluck off all dead-looking leaves, replenish the

soil with strawberry food and tuck new layers

of straw around each plant to keep the soil

weed-free and the fruit clean.

IN FLOWER NOW:

WINTER ROSES

Hellebores are strutting their stuff for

the next few months. These winter

wonders are happy nestled under trees,

in pots and tubs; anywhere really, as

long as they have a little protection from

intense sun in summer. A new one to

look out for is ‘Camelot’, with its large,

pearly white, flat blooms with just a

hint of green. Great for a spot in need

of extra winter interest and summer

foliage. Wintersweet is just bursting

with punchy perfume now, too. Even

the smallest of sprigs picked and put in

a small vase indoors with permeate the

room.

WINTER HANGING

BASKETS

Baskets are not just for summer, they

are great value all year round. Always

freshen up the potting mix before

planting anything new. This time of

the year the small flowering violas

make a brilliant show. Team them

up with fairy primulas or herbs, like

parsley, for something different. And

place the basket somewhere it can be

viewed from both inside and outside.

If you have any bulbs left over,

tuck them up into the roots of the

bedding plants and, in a few months,

they will add the final hurrah of

flowers in spring.

Model search finalists announced

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PORTFOLIO MODEL Agency

has announced its nine finalists

for the Portfolio Model Search

2016.

The competition through

Facebook and Instagram was an

opportunity for aspiring models,

aged between 14-21, to be

scouted by the agency.

The finalists are Elysha De

Rybel, Eva Calje-Van Der

Klei, Leanna Elliott, Charlotte

Sullivan, Michaelee-Jayne

McDonald, Sophie Richards,

Shannon Middlemiss, Holly

Mccann and Paris Thorman.

Each contestant was required

to send in a photo of themselves

which were judged by agency

director Mel Radford Brown

and the agency’s model booker

Rebecca Dore.

The winner of the competition

will be announced next Tuesday

after the agency has met each

contestant in person.

Portfolio is an established

agency in the city that provides

a professional representation of

models and actors for both the

local and international stage.

The winner of the competition

will receive a portfolio teenage

workshop valued at $299 and

a Clemency Alice Facialist

“modern facial” valued at $105.

The winner will also receive

one free dress hire from clothing

companies maryoutram.com

and Borrowed By Mary as well

as an opportunity to appear in

the next Kristen Stewart School

of Make-Up photo shoot.

Agency director Mel Radford-

Brown said the reason the

competition is run is because

Christchurch is a “fantastic

scouting ground”.

“Beauty is very unique and

that is why we want to meet each

girl we want them to have the

confidence as well to go with

their look”.

Mrs Radford-Brown said due

to the standard competition

being so high they may offer a

second and third prize.

“I am looking at about four of

them who will sign. We will be

offering contracts for sure.”

Evening DJ’s Kiwi rock fetish

The Star continues with its monthly profile of

Plains FM broadcasters. Today we feature

Garry Thomas

BY DAY Garry Thomas wears

a suit and has a role in human

resources at Ara Institute of

Canterbury.

When his working day is

finished, he indulges in his

love of the arts, entertainment

and music by concocting and

presenting the weekly radio

programme Detox Mans!on

under his nickname – Gaz.

Named after a Warren Zevon

song, Detox Mans!on has a “noformat

format” with a strong

New Zealand flavour. It includes

a local gig guide canvassing the

wider performing arts and entertainment

scene, reviews and

interviews.

The Bats are my all time fav

Flying Nun band, but there are

so many others that had a brief

moment of fame that I enjoy.

My ideal Kiwi musicians’ dinner

party would include The Bats’

Robert Scott, Marlon Williams,

Nadia Reid, Adam McGrath

from The Eastern and Chris

Knox. That would be a cracker

Kiwi night!”

So how has he kept his show

going for nine years?

“Since first going on air back

in June 2007 I’ve continued to refine

the show, and my approach

to it, is to keep it fresh” he says.

“I’m also involved in the local

theatre scene so Detox Mans!on

meets those creative needs.

I try to have fun and I hope

that’s evident in the finished

programme. The support provided

by the Plains FM team

is awesome, and really does

make producing this show super

smooth and easy.”

Although a labour of love, the

show has also given this music

fanatic some practical skills and

an opportunity to learn multitrack

digital editing to record

continuity voice breaks. He uses

wry humour and sound effects to

create a raft of interesting audio

elements to introduce special

features and flesh out the overall

sound.

This creative flair led to him

being a finalist in the access

radio category for the NZ Radio

ROCKER: Garry Thomas’ Plains FM show has a strong Kiwi

flavour.

Awards in 2010 and he has no

shortage of material to draw

on.

“I tend to buy one or two CDs

a week, so it’s a pretty extensive

collection. I don’t buy vinyl any

more, but I still have my pre-CD

collection, and still play vinyl at

home.

“I think my first LP was The

Beatles (White Album) or maybe

Creedence’s Green River. If I had

to pick my top five albums of all

time they would be Astral Weeks

(Van Morrison), Who’s Next

(The Who), IV (Led Zeppelin),

Doolittle (Pixies) and Aladdin

Sane (David Bowie).”

So says this highly motivated

and creative music lover who

ends each show with “so keep on

rocking while you still can.”

And he sure does every week

on air.

Singers Las Vegas-bound Pre-teen, ad-lib

show for all ages

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SHARING A love for creating

songs using only their voices

has led a mother and daughter

to travel to Las Vegas for an

international barbershop quartet

battle.

Hazel Hay and her daughter

Catriona, 21, will travel to the

Sweet Adelines’ international

competition and convention to

compete in October.

They will attend the event

with fellow quartet members Sue

Davis and Jane Martin.

The group, known as Aftershock,

received a wild-card entry

into the international competition

after coming second at the

regional Sweet Adelines’ New

Zealand concert held in Wellington

earlier this year.

They take the 10 highest

scores throughout the world and

we were the sixth highest,” Mrs

Hay said.

And the barbershop quartet

already has a number of achievements

under their belt.

A survey, completed by online

resource barbershophistory.com

on June 1, ranked Aftershock

as number 37 out of the top 50

Sweet Adelines’ quartets in the

world.

When the quartet competed

for the first time in the Sweet

HARMONY: Quartet group Aftershock (from left), tenor Jane

Martin, bass Hazel Hay, lead singer Catriona Hay and baritone

Sue Davis performing at a regional quartet concert at the

Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington earlier this year. ​

Adelines’ international competition

held in Houston in 2011,

Catriona was only 16 – one of

the youngest leads to compete at

the time.

Mrs Hay said Catriona joined

the Christchurch City Chorus

when she was nine which is very

unusual.

The family along with Mrs

Hay’s husband and two other

daughters moved to the city from

Scotland in 2003 along with her

husband and two other daughters

looking to start a new life.

In 2004 Mrs Hay and her

daughters joined the Christchurch

City Chorus.

Following the September

earthquake “Aftershock” was

formed.

Both Mrs Hay and Catriona

said it is very special they will be

competing together overseas.

“It is a bit nerve-racking but

my head is so competitive. I

am so excited about it really,”

Catriona said.

The Early Early Late Show

Directed by Dan Bain

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

IF YOU know a quick-witted,

natural-born storyteller about

to delve into their teenage years

then the Court Theatre’s Early

Early Late Show will be right up

their alley.

Being in my late teens I was

curious to see what it would be

like to go to a show designed to

cater for pre-teens.

I found I had a great appreciation

for how the performers

could transform a simple word

shouted from a merry audience

of young, and not-so-young, into

a full-scale story.

Created by the city’s renowned

Court Jesters, the show is fully

improvised by four astute

actors – Emma Cusdin, Daniel

Pengelly, Tara Swadi and

Brendon Bennetts.

The show is based on a mysterious

“Boss” who had left a set

of instructions and a suitcase of

clues which are whipped into

scenes by his employees – The

Court Jesters.

That’s right, all songs and

scenes in the show are made-up

on the spot and are accompanied

by the pianist Nicky Marshall.

Mr Marshall unintentionally

becomes the star of the

show when he is inflicted with

a coughing fit which the Court

Jesters professionally spin into

one of their stories.

Other highlights included a

rap out of words rhyming with

“cat”, a horror story at McDonald’s

and one performer having

make-up applied by an audience

member acting as his hands.

One cannot forget the catchy

song Never Too Much Make-Up

summarising the entire show

at the end – I still have the tune

stuck in my head.

Any child will get a kick out

of this delightful show but if you

know any child with a flair for

storytelling, bring them along

because they will be left inspired.

The Early Early Late Show

will be run until July 23. To

Travel

Live like a local in Beverly Hills

• By Mike Yardley

HEADING WEST from the

heart of Hollywood, sample the

salubrious flavours of Beverly

Hills like a local.

I love strolling through the

palm-fringed, gently curved

streets, where the berms are

clipped to precision, and where a

discreet network of service lanes

between the vast ranks of trophy

houses and movie star mansions

eliminates the need to wheel your

rubbish bin out to the kerb.

Yes, best appearances are everything

in Beverly Hills. Take the

opportunity to venture into the

glittery neighbourhood of West

Hollywood, where the playful

street art lends itself to the Instagram

age.

Put yourself in the picture

amongst the parade of snapfriendly

murals draping oh-so

trendy Melrose Ave. But LA’s most

instagrammed spot is the installation

outside the LA County

Museum of Art. Chris Burden’s

Urban Light brings together 202

cast-iron antique street lamps

from across California, which

have been painstakingly restored.

Synonymous with LA trendiness,

Melrose Ave doesn’t just

flourish in the arts, but in fashion

and food. I really like the stretch

east of Fairfax Ave, which serves

up a heady mix of indie boutiques,

vintage stores, tattoo

parlours and lively cafes.

For upscale tastes, head further

west, where you’ll run into signature

boutiques including Rebecca

Minkoff, Vivienne Westwood and

Ron Herman.

But you’ll really need to hang

on to your wallet for the ultimate

hotspot in glamour shopping,

Rodeo Drive and the Golden

Triangle. It’s a shining reminder

why 90210 is still the most prestigious

zip code in the United

States. Burberry, Gucci and Saint

Laurent have all recently unveiled

new or refreshed flagships on

Rodeo Drive.

Across the road on Wilshire

Boulevard, check out the sweep

of luxury retail titans that stand

shoulder to shoulder – Saks Fifth

Avenue, Barneys New York and

Neiman Marcus.

Overlooking Rodeo Drive, a

dream spot to toast your day’s

discoveries is to enjoy a cheeky

cocktail and dinner at The Blvd

Restaurant and Lounge, at the

Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Yes, the

hotel made famous by Richard

Gere and Julia Roberts in Pretty

Woman.

The legacy lives on with the

signature cocktail list headlined

by The Gentleman and Pretty

Woman. Both are vodka-based

with cranberry juice, although

The Gentleman includes Captain

Morgan passionfruit and jalapeno

infused Ultimat vodka. Splendid

mixology!

Chic and sophisticated,

the restaurant’s lofty crystal

chandeliered ceiling and large

windows complete the sense of

grandeur.

The following night, I headed to

The Peninsula Beverly Hills. Old

World Hollywood charm meets

sophisticated contemporary

cuisine at the recently refreshed

restaurant, The Belvedere.

It’s a power lunch favourite, but

I plumped for dinner which is a

graceful, low-key affair. Monkfish

Osso Bucco was my entrée, served

with charred spanish octupus,

confit potato and tanaka.

I couldn’t resist the chance to

devour a plate of freshly shucked

pacific and atlantic oysters. (The

Atlantic boys are definitely bigger.)

For my main, I plumped for the

28-day dry aged bone-in-rib with

cippolini onions. It was simply

divine. Beautifully presented fresh

and flavourful cuisine, and you’ll

be royally treated by the charismatic,

chatty restaurant staff.

Hip, high-end and in a primo

location, AKA Beverly Hills delivers

an extraordinary residentialliving

experience.

Blending contemporary style

with impeccable hospitality,

you’ll relish the supreme sense of

comfort and spaciousness in your

fully appointed luxury suite.

No boxy, cramped hotel rooms

here – it’s the ultimate home away

from home.

A fabulous touch is the inhouse

20-seat cinema, fitted out

with oversized leather reclining

seats, where you can watch a film

of your choice. My favourite

space is definitely the terrace

lounge, an al fresco elevated affair,

clad in palm trees and cozy

outdoor fire pits.

It’s the perfect spot for a cheeky

sundowner, as the twinkling

lights of Hollywood Hills and

the famous Hollywood sign

illuminate the night. Beverly Hills’

legendary Spago, from master

chef Wolfgang Puck, is right next

door.

Spago’s recently recreated menu

is winning plenty of accolades.

Whether you wish to dine in the

restaurant or in-suite, Spago’s

culinary experience is a must.

They’ve recently introduced a

small plates menu adding to the

high-end conviviality. For fussfree

fare, their pizzas and pastas

are a massive hit.

Savouring cuisine from Spago

while staying at AKA?

Now that’s really living like a

Vatuvei to return for Warriors against Manly

MANU VATUVEI will return

to the Warriors side for this

Saturday’s match against Manly,

after more than a month out of

action.

Vatuvei, who is one touchdown

away from reaching 150 NRL

tries, comes back into the team

at the expense of Tui Lolohea

who drops back to the interchange

bench.

It means that Vatuvei and Ken

Maumalo will be teamed up on

the wings for the first time since

last August for the match in

Perth.

The 30-year-old Vatuvei has

been sidelined since a hamstring

injury forced him off the field

early in the second half of the

50-14 win over Newcastle on

June 11.

Maumalo has filled Vatuvei’s

regular spot on the left wing in

the Warriors’ last three matches,

against the Sydney Roosters,

Cronulla and Gold Coast.

The reunion of the two giant

wings comes more than

13 months after they were first

used together, ironically when

the Warriors were last in Perth

facing the Rabbitohs in June last

year.

Aside from Lolohea’s shift,

there are two changes to the

starting pack used in the 27-18

win over Gold Coast.

Captain Ryan Hoffman is

back after a virus prevented him

playing in Simon Mannering’s

250th NRL game, while Albert

Vete (hamstring injury) has been

ruled out.

His absence sees Ben Matulino

and Jacob Lillyman named as the

starting props.

Charlie Gubb, who started at

loose forward against the Titans,

switches back to a five-man

bench alongside Lolohea, Sam

Lisone, Bunty Afoa and James

Gavet.

Gavet, in line for his seventh

NRL outing of the year, has been

impressive for the reserve grade

side over the past month.

The Warriors take an 8-8

win-loss record into Saturday’s

contest. With eight rounds to

go in the regular season they’re

seventh on the table on 20 points

while the Sea Eagles are 13th on

14 points.

Kick off is at 7.30pm NZT.

Tech look to reclaim title

• By Gordon Findlater

ONE CHRISTCHURCH club

will remain in the Chatham Cup

after this weekend’s round of 16.

Universities will host Christchurch’s

top club Cashmere

Technical on Saturday in a David

v Goliath-like match. Cashmere

occupy top spot in the Mainland

Premier League, while Universities

are 27 points behind and

currently sit second-to-last in the

league.

Cashmere coach John Brown

knows Universities can’t be

taken lightly, after handing Tech

a 2-4 defeat in May.

“Robbie [Barraclough], their

coach, has them set up well, especially

against us. We defeated

them at the weekend, but they

had three or four key guys out

with injury,” said Brown.

Universities has done well to

get to this stage of New Zealand’s

most illustrious knockout

football competition, accounting

for Nomads United 3-2, Halswell

United 1-0 and Richmond Athletic

3-0.

“It’s a position the club’s never

been in before, so that’s pleasing.

I guess to some degree we’ve had

an easy draw. In recent seasons,

EYE ON THE PRIZE: Cashmere Technical are looking to

reclaim the Chatham Cup, which they last won in 2014.

we’ve always seemed to get Tech

first up, but the guys have done

a great job to get to where we

have,” said Universities coach

Robbie Barraclough.

Universities went down to

Tech 8-1 on Saturday. They

haven’t won a game in the league

since May 7 when they defeated

Tech, but remain optimistic.

“We seem to play our best

football when there’s no pressure

on us. It’s a David versus Goliath

battle. We’re not expected to

win, but as we’ve previously

shown, we do like that underdog

status and we’ll be trying to

use that to the best of our ability,”

said Barraclough.

Tech will look to make their

fourth straight Chatham Cup

quarter-final in a row. Tech won

the competition in 2013 and

2014. They also made it to the

last eight in 2015 before being

eliminated by Eastern Suburbs.

Former All White and Wellington

Phoenix player Ben

Sigmund has joined up with his

boyhood coach John Brown and

has made an immediate impact

since joining the club mid-way

through the season.

“We’ve been playing him as an

attacking mid-fielder. He’s got

the skill to play anywhere. He’s

the sort of guy that galvanises a

team, him and Aaron Clapham

have great chemistry in midfield,”

said Brown.

There’s a strong chance that

Tech could make a run at both

the men and women’s elite

knock-out competitions.

Tech’s women’s team will play

Dunedin club Rosyln Wakari

AFC in the quarter-finals of

the New Zealand Women’s

Knockout Cup – the women’s

equivalent of the Chatham Cup.

After making it this far, Tech

coach Megan Shea is hopeful the

team can continue its run.

“Over the last five years that

I’ve been involved, we’ve never

made it past the Christchurch

region. We usually get knocked

out by Coastal Spirit, so it’s nice

to make it this far,” said Shea.

Tech has put together a strong

side this season with the likes of

Football Ferns Annalie Longo

and Meikayla Moore in their

ranks. Saturday’s game against

Rosyln Wakari AFC kicks off at

Garrick Park at 12.30pm. The

Chatham Cup match between

Universities and Tech kicks off at

Ilam Fields at 2pm on Saturday.

In Brief

UNDER-17 NETBALL

Christchurch will field two

teams in next week’s under-17

New Zealand Netball Nationals

at the North Canterbury

Netball Centre in Rangiora

from July 18 to 21. Christchurch

A will meet North Harbour

2, Nelson, Horowhenua and

Eastern Waikato in the pool

round, while Christchurch B

will meet Dunedin, Auckland

2, Waitakere 2 and Kapiti.

CRUSADERS YOUTH

The under-18 Crusaders will

play the under-18 Hurricanes at

AMI Stadium on Saturday. The

match will serve as a curtainraiser

to the Super Rugby

game between the Crusaders

and Hurricanes. The curtainraiser

kicks off at 2.30pm. The

under-18 Crusaders squad

was selected at the Crusaders

Knights Academy camp held

this week at St Andrew’s

College. Around 60 players

attended the camp. The camp

was run by Canterbury NPC

coaches Scott Robertson and

Joe Maddock. The New Zealand

Secondary Schools squad

selectors also attended and will

have an eye on this weekend’s

game, as they pick a team to

play Australia later in the year.

Crusaders to target Hurricanes scrum

THE CRUSADERS will

target the Hurricanes scrum

and an untried new midfield

combination in Saturday’s high

stakes contest in Christchurch.

The Hurricanes lineout was

able to successfully disrupt the

Waratahs last weekend, but in

turn the home side put heat on

the visitors’ scrum, and now

tight-head prop Chris Eves has a

cut ear and possible concussion,

which could rule him out of the

final round match-up.

The Crusaders are lying in

wait with a clutch of All Black

front-rowers.

Willis Halaholo was solid at

second-five, aside from his high

shot on Bernard Foley, which

earned a trip to the sin-bin. His

midfield partner Matt Proctor

limped off after 25 minutes with

a hamstring injury, so his place

will likely go to Ngani Laumape.

Crusaders centre Ryan Crotty

will make them earn their keep.

The All Black has a low mistake

rate and runs good attacking angles,

as he showed with two tries

in the Crusaders’ 85-24 shellacking

of the tackle-shy Melbourne

Rebels last weekend.

Adding to the Hurricanes

concerns will be the return of

talismanic captain Kieran Read.

The Hurricanes showed their

ample defensive qualities against

the Waratahs.

The Waratahs tried to beat us

up and dominate us physically.

After half-time, they went into

that direct combat mode and we

stood up to that. Our plan was to

absorb that pressure, then move

it around, and that was successful,”

said Hurricanes coach Chris

Boyd.

“When a team comes to bully

you physically, you can stand

up or wilt. We made a collective

decision not to wilt. It was one of

our two or three best efforts this

year.”

Boyd will be hoping to say

something similar to media

at about 7.15pm this Saturday

night in what is shaping as yet

another rugged New Zealand

derby.

The biggest range of vehicles

in one location

Ford Focus ST a

worthy compromise

• By Ross Kiddie

I’VE LONG desired a 70s

two-door Ford Escort, it’s

a car I thought would be a

good retirement project,

but I’m a victim of

skyrocketing classic car

prices and decreased

availability.

The latter could be true

of other fast Ford fans,

New Zealand’s quota of the

recently-released Focus RS

has been exhausted, the

257kW, four-wheel-drive

model is hot property and,

by all accounts, deservedly

so, as it is a true performance

machine.

However, Ford has

another hot Focus, it is the

ST and would suffice for

those who want good performance

at a price that is

considerably more favourable

than that of the RS.

At $52,840 the Focus ST

is affordable, and although

its performance isn’t as

great as the RS, it equips

itself well with 184kW, and

360Nm providing the power

for a 6.6sec standstill to

100km/h time.

Power is directed through

a six-speed manual transmission

and is a frontwheel-drive

model only, and

while it certainly fits into

the hot hatchback category,

it has four-doors offering

the practicality the Focus

has as a series.

The ST gets a turbocharged,

twin-camshaft

engine which gets about

its job with strong engine

sound and character. I’m

not saying it is noisy, it’s

not, the sound is well isolated

but it is there to be

heard, the engine is angry

under load and it is a sound

that encourages throttle use,

it is pleasant to listen to.

The Focus ST is quick

through a corner, grippy

tyres (Good Year Eagle

F1, 225/40 x 18in) turn in

precisely with little steering

effort. If more lock is

required you can rely on the

tyres to bite and maintain

direction.

Sitting low, the Focus

doesn’t move around on

the suspension, therefore

gravitational changes don’t

load the tyres, nor does it

affect the way the suspension

operates in a corner; if

FORD FOCUS ST: High power engine.

uneven surfaces are encountered

there is composure

and certainty within the

steering process.

I took the test car on

a Summit Rd loop, they

are perfect roads for a

performance car. English

Fords have generally been

regarded as having supple

chassis balance and the ST

doesn’t disappoint. It also

rockets between corners

with a powerful surge and

swift retardation thanks to a

performance brake package,

through the corners it has

balance and accuracy akin

to a true sports hatchback.

• Price – Ford Focus

ST, $52,840

• Dimensions –

Length, 4362mm;

width, 1823mm;

height, 1471mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2000cc, 184kW,

360Nm, six-speed

manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.2sec

• Fuel usage–

6.7l/100km

There is a bit of torque

steer under load, it’s not

dramatic but it is there to

remind there is a lot of

power heading out the front

end. It doesn’t bother me, I

like to be reminded there is

something special under the

bonnet and the high power

flows are there to entice the

driver, everything about the

Focus ST is structured for

performance.

The hatchback also

embodies the spirit of Ford’s

Focus, the ST is still the

handy five-seater which

pleases in the everyday role

as well, but any prospective

DYNAMIC:

Big wheels

provide an

aggressive

stance.

buyer should be prepared to

be noticed.

The ST stands out with its

bold wheels, body kit and

spoiler, while on the inside

Recaro seats not only support

the driver around the

mid-riff, but they are visual.

The test car was painted

bright yellow, well, Ford

call it tangerine, and the

inside detailing incorporated

splashes of yellow as

well.

The Focus ST is a fun

package and it comes extensively

equipped with all of

the items you’d expect today

for comfort and convenience,

and safety.

Ford claim a 6.7l/100km

(42mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average for the

ST. Obviously, I didn’t push

as hard as I could have

done because the trip computer

was showing around

8l/100km (35mpg), when

I took the car back to the

dealership.

It will also return a

5.6l/100kmn (50mpg)

instantaneous reading at

100km/h (engine speed

2200rpm), which means

you can have some fun

without scoffing vast

amounts of fuel.

I’ve long appreciated

Ford’s sporty cars which

aren’t out of reach for

buyers who want a little

bit of performance with

their purchase. I also relate

well to the Volvo-powered

five-cylinder Focus Turbo

which, for a long period,

was one of my favourite fast

Fords.

Sadly, Ford don’t use that

engine any more, however,

that aside, the Ecoboost

series that makes up a large

part of the Ford power

plants today is widely recognised

for its efficiency and

performance.

I guess I’ll always mourn

parting with my old Escort

Sport and envy those who

I know have one parked

in their garage today. My

retirement projects will

probably lend themselves to

something far more mundane

– like painting the

house, for instance.

FINDING THE BEST

HOUSE DESIGN

FINDING THE BEST HOUSE DESIGN

The standard family home has

increased in size. Where once the

norm was three bedrooms, one

bathroom and a detached garage,

now many homes have more features yet what

do you really need?

Viewing show homes are a great way to get

ideas though it can be easy to get carried away

with the imaginative features now available in

the myriad of house designs out there and

choices will need to be made.

Before selecting a house plan, determine

your actual budget and draw up a list of needs

and wants for your new home ranking the

wants in order of preference.

Next, research building company websites

and visit their show homes or offices to see

the work they do and their house designs.

Talk to the building company representatives

to get an idea of costs for each of the plans

that interests you, remembering the figures

they suggest will be based on standard fittings

for each house plan so changes may impact

on the price.

Gather together the various designs that

you like and fit within your budget. Compare

these against your checklist, discarding any

that do not match the budget or needs then

consider how each of the remaining designs

provides for your wants. Make a short-list of

suitable designs for further scrutiny.

Housing company representatives can

help you work through this process and may

suggest ways your needs, wants and budget

can be met in one of their standard house

plans which may be adapted, or through the

creation of a new design. Your checklist will

also assist the designer when working on a

plan for you.

In your checklist, state your needs and

wants separately including a column for

suitable room sizes. Cover:

• House size desired: The more square

metre area of the home the higher the price.

What size will work best for you?

• Bedrooms: Consider the number of

people who will live or stay in the house and

other needs such as a large office space.

• Living areas: Do you want open plan and/

or a separate lounge? Would two living spaces

be used?

• Kitchen: Do you love to cook or is the

kitchen a place to prepare a quick meal? This

will influence the amount of cupboards and/

or pantry needed.

• Bathrooms: More bathrooms and wash

basins translate to more cleaning however an

extra bathroom may be justified if it avoids

morning queues.

• Garage: How many cars will be parked

on site and what garage storage needs do you

have?

• Storage: Do you need space for toys,

clothes, and other possessions and how

much?

• Laundry: Savings can be made by putting

this in the garage but will that be convenient

or would a larger laundry make life easier

especially with a large family?

With research, thought and planning you

will end up with a home that is practical and

that you love and enjoy.

difference and showcase an individual style

with the right decorating theme, and we like

to push the boundaries a little by adding

interesting pieces and features which drive a

lot of discussion and opinion.”

Horncastle Homes’ Faringdon show home

will appeal to all ages, especially families, and

those who like to entertain.

Its floor area of 201 square metres makes it

an ideal three-bedroom family home. There

is an en suite and walk-in robe recess in the

main bedroom which is a little separated

from the other two bedrooms, so ideal for a

family with older children or teenagers.

Both bathrooms have fully tiled showers

and the main bathroom is tiled to the ceiling

throughout, with the open plan kitchen living

space also tiled. The walk-through designer

kitchen has 900mm wide Bosch appliances

and generous cupboard space, while sliders

open on two sides of the living area to a large

timber deck with partial roof overhang.

There is a large separate laundry that has

good storage and bench space, a double

garage with attic stairs to a loft storage area,

gas hot water and in-slab heating, customised

joinery, an alarm system and efficient

utilisation of space throughout.

If you are in the market to build right now

or considering redecorating, then take a

walk-through of the Horncastle show home

at Faringdon, open Wednesday to Sunday,

12pm to 4pm.

MOTORING

TOYOTA RAV4 GXL

Toyota’s latest RAV4 holds its own within the highly competitive sports utility market with

its intuitive technology and added safety features according to Motoring Editor Ross Kiddie.

TOYOTA RAV4 GXL

Price

$49,990

Dimensions

Length,4605mm; width, 1845mm;

height, 1750mm.

Configuration

Four-cylinder transverse, four-wheeldrive,

2494cc, 132kW, 233Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

Performance

0-100km/h, 9.3sec.

Such is the intensity within the sport

utility vehicle market, Toyota knows it has

to up the ante to keep its line-up fresh and

competitive.

And this from a manufacturer who

almost invented the SUV; the RAV4,

alongside Honda’s CRV, were instrumental

in setting up that part of the market.

Toyota has just launched a new RAV4,

well effectively, it is major makeover,

but it bristles with the technology which

will help it maintain a solid position in

the market amidst a host of rivals. While

the technology upgrade centres mostly

around safety specification, it is still the

easy-to-understand, intuitive model which

will appeal to the young and young at

heart.

Appearance-wise, the new RAV4 has a

new grille, bumper and light assemblies,

elsewhere it shares much the same body

style as its predecessors.

The newcomer lands here in nine

models and the choice of three engines – a

2-litre petrol, 2.2-litre diesel and a 2.5-litre

petrol. The test car was a GXL specification

2.5-litre, it lists at $49,990, bearing in mind

that the entry-level model comes in at

$37,490, the range topping out at $60,990

for a Limited specification diesel.

In GXL form it gets all the new safety kit

which is labelled Toyota Safety Sense. It

includes pre-crash system, lane departure

alert with steering assist function, radar

cruise control with automatic brake

control, automatic headlight high beam,

reversing camera, emergency stop signal,

and blind spot monitoring with rear cross

traffic alert.

All grades have the benefit of further

refinement, special attention has been

made in the manufacturing process

to make the RAV4 quieter and more

comfortable on the road, and that is quite

noticeable as the newcomer reeks of

refinement and quality build.

Under the bonnet sits a twin-camshaft,

16-valve engine of 2494cc. It is rated by

Toyota at 132kW and 233Nm outputs

which combine to promote enthusiasm

and keen throttle response. The RAV4 will

cut out a standstill to 100km/h time of

9.4sec and will launch through a highway

overtake in 6.7sec.

It drives through a conventional sixspeed

automatic gearbox, bearing in mind

that the 2-litre variant utilises continuously

variable transmission. That aside, the sixspeeder

has ratios which encourage that

keen acceleration along with respectable

fuel usage figures.

The RAV4 in this form is listed with an

8.5-litre per 100km (33mpg) combined

cycle average which sat well with the dash

readout at 9.6l/100km (29mpg), and an

instantaneous figure of around 6l/100km

(47mpg) driving at a steady 100km/h

(engine speed 1900rpm).

Contributing to those respectable

figures, the RAV4 has driver-selectable

eco/sport/normal drive modes, I used

normal mostly, it has a good balance;

however, eco mode is there for those

who feel fuel economy is more important

than acceleration, while sport mode

certainly maps the engine towards higher

revolutions.

In those situations engine sound is

very subdued, it is quiet and even, when

hunting towards the top of the rev band

sound is well stifled. That can be said of

the RAV4 in total, it cruises quietly at all

speeds with barely any noise transmitted

inside, the tyres are quiet, and wind

gushes are minimised.

Good suspension is important for

Christchurch’s roads, the RAV4 soaks up

the bumps without unsettling occupant

comfort. The fully independent set-up

has spring and damper rates which cover

all the bases such as containing body roll

in a corner, and dealing with the rough

stuff. It is hard to make an SUV handle

without compromising other elements,

but the RAV4 is well balanced and handles

effectively.

It is still the quintessential wagon which

fits with the SUV concept, the cargo

carrying section is enormous (506-litres

to 1655-litres), and there is cabin space

which will easily make five occupants

comfortable. On the subject of load

capacity, the old Kiddie-family wide-screen

television failed, so into the RAV it went

and was off-loaded at the transfer station.

It easily fitted into the rear cargo section.

That is part of what makes SUVs so

popular, and while the price has crept

up over the years, you can guarantee the

RAV4 will be reliable and faithful transport

for many years, suiting well those who

don’t often change cars, nor brands.

TRAVEL 5

BRAVERY OF

GEORGE THE PIGEON

AUSTRALASIAN

BOUTIQUE TOURS

Beginning with trips to Mount Cook over

20 years ago, Christchurch based Reid Tours

now run tours throughout New Zealand and

Australia.

The New Zealand tours include iconic tours

of the South Island and New Zealand as well as

specific location and event based tours such as

World of Wearable Arts. Reid Tours have found

many New Zealand travellers have seen much

of the world, but are yet to see key parts of

New Zealand.

Australian tours began with a trip to the

ever popular Tasmania and then expanded to

include Cairns and Far North Queensland and

now Adelaide and the Murray River.

Reid Tours policy is that you should have a

memorable holiday experience, not just a long

bus trip. A large number of their clients from

across New Zealand and overseas have come

from customer recommendations which is a

testament to the quality and enjoyment of the

tours.

Careful attention is paid to the pace and

comfort of the tours. Home pickups and the

inclusion of shorter days, multi-night stays

and limiting numbers on coach tours, keeping

20 per cent of seats free, makes for a more

pleasant journey. Enjoy a Reid Tour for yourself.

When Kiwi pilot Norman Crompton and his

crew ditched their Martin Baltimore bomber

in the sea off the coast of Libya in 1943, things

looked bleak. Four men sharing two small

inflatable life rafts bobbed around in high

seas, with no food or water, or any way of

signalling rescuers.

Luckily, George, one of their messenger

pigeons, had also survived in his canister,

albeit soaked in oily water. After being cleaned

up as much as possible by the remaining crew

they attached a message to his leg giving their

location. After an initial false start on take-off,

George finally made it into the air and flew

away to cheers from the men.

George was later discovered in the local

Royal Air Force (RAF) pigeon loft over 100

miles away with the hastily scribbled message,

and the Royal Navy were dispatched to pick

up the downed airmen. This was the first time

in World War Two that a pigeon had saved the

lives of RAF airmen in the Mediterranean Sea.

George’s story is one of a series of new

displays that have just been added to the Air

Force Museum’s “Horizon to Horizon” gallery.

The Museum is constantly refreshing its

exhibits, so there’s always something new to

see on your next visit.

HOT TIP BEATS

WINTER CHILL

Does that nip in the air make it hard to get

moving?

The less active we are, the more we feel

the cold. Now it’s easier to warm hands and

feet without venturing outdoors with a

revolutionaries new product to help you get

your blood pumping.

The Aircycle exerciser can be used while

sitting in your favourite chair and will get

your circulation going in no time. The

movement serves as a gentle awakening for

sleepy muscles and joints, that warms and

loosens them to ease them into action.

Tight, cold muscles mean decreased

mobility and make them more prone to

injury. Imagine putting a rubber band in

the freezer and then trying to stretch it over

a large box. It snaps. But warm the rubber

band slowly and it will stretch to take the

force of the pull. That rubber band is just

like your muscles in winter.

For greatest efficacy you only need to

use the Aircycle in short, frequent spells

throughout the day and evening. A few

minutes while having coffee, chatting on

the phone or watching TV will keep blood

circulating so your hands and feet remain

warm. Even just simple, small movements

keep the body running like a well oiled

machine, as one Aircycle user with arthritis

and joint problems testifies, “When I’ve

been using the Aircycle I feel as though I’ve

had a good lube. My joints are more flexible

and I can garden more easily.”

HEALTH 7

New Facilities for Older People

Burwood Hospital’s brand new ward provides greater facilities, comfort and scope for growth with the arrival of the

first hundred patients transferred from The Princess Margaret Hospital.

Seventy-year old Geoff Peach was “as snug

as a bug” on his first night spent in the new

Burwood Hospital facilities.

The day before Geoff waved good bye

to his old ward at The Princess Margaret

Hospital (TPMH) and joined fellow patient

Ken Ralfe on a bus ride to their new hospital

ward across town. They were among the first

of nearly 100 patients who were moved over

a four day period to the brand new facilities

at Burwood Hospital, which mark the

beginning of specialist older persons’ health

care in Canterbury.

The ward blocks of the recently

constructed three-storey building house

increased Older Persons Mental Health

inpatient beds, which include a seclusion

room, more Brain Injury Rehabilitation

inpatient beds, Older Persons Stroke

Rehabilitation inpatient beds, along with

a single level ward area for Older Persons

Mental Health inpatient beds, including

a high dependency room. Each floor

has shared Allied Health spaces such as

gyms and kitchens to support the patient

rehabilitation process.

Over half of the bed spaces in the new

facility are individual rooms, with the other

half two-bedded rooms, many of them

equipped with hoists. The building has been

future proofed to allow for further beds to

be added later to meet increased demand.

In addition, there is a new main entrance

reception with a café, retail pharmacy and

volunteer shop, support staff offices, a new

Radiology department.

The new hospital area was designed with

significant input from members of staff,

patients, consumers and families combined

with wide-ranging research and experiential

testing using mock-ups.

Key concepts in the design have included

the idea of wellness, the need for space

within clinical areas for family to be able

to provide support, and ‘long life, loose fit’

that allows spaces to be used for different

functions over time.

While most of the older persons’ health

wards have moved, with the remaining

corporate services moving in July, a number of

services will remain at The Princess Margaret

Hospital for several years still.

The majority of the ground floor of TPMH

main building will remain open. Seagar, the

home for adult long-term mental health, on

the ground floor of the Heathcote Building

will remain open, floors above will continue

to house Child and Family (CAF) services

and Older Person’s Health Specialist Service

(OPHSS) community teams.

Services remaining at TPMH include;

the mothers and babies unit, child and

youth mental health inpatient services, and

eating disorder services. A range of support

services, such as a pharmacist, orderlies,

maintenance, transport and equipment

stores will remain. There will be someone

at reception to help with enquiries, and the

kitchen will be operating with the café open

Monday to Friday from 7:30am-3pm.

The Addington Fire Brigade will park an

appliance and have four firefighters based in

the Riley Day Unit end of the facility, during

the day Monday – Friday.

HEALTH

BRITTLE BONES

Osteoporosis can cause great pain and immobility problems, but there is a wealth of information and

resources now available to alleviate suffering and minimise pain.

The prospect of living with fragile bones is

something we all need to be aware of.

Osteoporosis is a debilitating condition

that weakens the skeleton and makes bones

more prone to fractures, especially of the

hip, spine and wrist.

Trish Adams of the Osteoporosis Society

Canterbury, says that in extreme cases a

cough, a tight hug or a sneeze can break

a bone. Additional problems are pain,

immobility and shrinking – loss of height.

It affects both men and women,

increasingly with age, but can occur earlier

in life. For older people this can be a threat

to their independence and enjoyment of

life. Besides a broken bone being a painful

experience, other health problems such as

pneumonia can often set in while people

are immobilised. The risk of osteoporosis

fractures doubles every 7–8 years after the

age of 50, and hip fracture risk increases 40

fold between the ages of 55 and 85.

Some risk fractures can be minimised

to reduce this “silent condition” by either

undergoing regular weight bearing exercise,

maintaining a calcium–rich diet, ensuring

an adequate supply of Vitamin D, limiting

alcohol and caffeine and not smoking.

Bone mineral density is measured to

help diagnose osteoporosis. When suitable

treatment is combined with lifestyle changes,

most people are able to reduce the loss of

calcium from their bones.

Diagnosed with osteoporosis in her early

fifties Trish says with careful management

under the guidance of her doctor it doesn’t

hinder the way she lives.

“When I had my first bone scan in 1997 I

had never heard of osteoporosis before and

was interested to learn more. I participated in

a 5 year trial for Fosamax in June 1997 and the

results were positive.”

Trish no longer takes medication but

ensures a regular does of Vitamin D each

month.

While Trish admits to having the odd

fracture, a couple of broken toes, and three

cracked ribs after falling into a chest freezer to

retrieve some whitebait, she says she does all

she can to strengthen her bones.

“I just need to be aware that my bones

aren’t as strong as they used to be. After

cracking my ribs it took me a long time to be

able to sneeze, cough and accept any form of

hugging!”

Both exercise and a diet rich in calcium are

important to maintain bone strength. Even

if you aren’t able to have dairy in your diet,

calcium can be found in many other foods

like dark leafy greens bok choy, kale and

broccoli, almonds, white beans, sardines.

I have been a committee member of the

Osteoporosis Society Canterbury for many

years. I have enjoyed the opportunity of

sharing my experiences and information with

people who truly understand this condition.

The committee is a great team and

wonderful to work with. Osteoporosis Society

Canterbury is a voluntary organisation

based in Christchurch, and is overseen and

supported by health professionals who

specialise in bone health. The goals of the

society are to educate the public on risk

factors associated with osteoporosis, what

can be done to minimise the risks, and

to support the people who already have

osteoporosis.

For more information visit www.

osteoporosis.org.nz or email Trish Adams at

trish.adams@paradise.net.nz.

New members are always welcome,

whatever their age, and their next annual

general meeting will be held on 10 August at

the YMCA in Rolleston Avenue.

LAW 9

Property Ownership

There are two common legal forms of property ownership

in New Zealand to be aware of.

A majority of couples own their properties

as Joint Tenants. The significant feature

of this form of ownership is that on the

death of the first spouse, the property

automatically passes to the survivor by

way of a rule of law known as Survivorship.

It does not matter what is in your will,

your surviving partner will take the entire

property in his or her own name.

The second common form of legal

ownership where two or more people own

property together is as Tenants in common.

Quite simply, this form of ownership allows

for property to be owned in distinct shares.

The most common form is tenancy in

common in equal shares. Significantly, the

rule of survivorship does not apply and as

a consequence what happens to your share

of the property on your death depends

entirely on what you state in your will.

Life Interest Will

If property is owned by two or more

persons as tenants in common, they are

free to leave their share of the property

as they choose in their Will. Generally, a

couple will leave a Life Interest in their

share of the property to their spouse in

their Will. This is called a Life Interest Will.

Your executor or trustee administers your

estate through your will. A Life Interest Will

leaves your share of the property to your

Executor(s) / Trustee(s) with instructions

that they allow your spouse to live in the

property for the remainder of his or her

lifetime. Upon the ultimate death of the

survivor, your share of the property then

goes to the final or residuary beneficiaries

of your will.

Rest Home Subsidies

If property is owned as joint tenants, on

the death of the first spouse, the whole

property passes to the survivor. Should the

surviving spouse require either rest home

or hospital level care at a later date, they

will have to meet the Ministry of Social

Development’s criteria before qualifying for

a Residential Care Subsidy.

Because of this, many people today are

choosing to become Tenants in Common as

the surviving spouse will only own a share

of the property. Therefore, should the

surviving spouse ever require government

assistance, they need only include the

value of their own share of the property

as they enjoy only a life interest in their

deceased spouse’s share of that asset.

Timing will be critical as there are strong

anti-deprivation clauses in the Social

Security Act 1964. Any decision to change

the way you own your home must be

done in conjunction with the rules and

regulations set in place by the Ministry.

As with all areas of law, it is important

that you seek good advice from a team

who understand how this area may impact

on you.

HOME

OUT OF THE WOODS

Curator of award winning interior design blog, My Scandinavian Home, Niki Brantmark explores ten diverse

homes that personify contemporary pastoral living in her first book, In a new book, Modern Pastoral.

In upstate New York, a 19th century

farmhouse in the heart of scenic Hudson

Valley serves as an idyllic retreat for the

Billinge family. Muted grey and cream

tones combine with original flooring and

salvaged wood-paneled walls to create a

rich, natural palette throughout. Simply

furnished using handmade furniture and

vintage finds, the newly renovated warm

and inviting vacation home reflects both

its past and the serene landscape in which

it lies.

Known locally as “The Cottage”, the

white clapboard farmhouse is one of a

cluster of houses in the small village of

Freehold.

The house itself is a mixture of

disparate parts resulting from a variety

of extensions and adjustments over the

years, but despite this disjointed feel,

the Billinges were drawn to the creaking

floorboards and inconsistent fittings and

the magnificent natural light.

They instinctively knew the house could

be turned into a sanctuary in which they

could spread out, cook, entertain, and

relax on weekends and vacations - the

perfect antidote to their cramped yearround

living space in New York’s Brooklyn.

A simple colour palette of soothing

muted greys and creams were selected to

create a light-hearted feel and reflect the

serenity of the surrounding nature. The

calm colours also provide a welcoming

respite from the powerful stimulation of

big city life.

Layers of laminate, cheap wood flooring

and old brown carpet have been stripped

away to reveal the original wood floor,

giving rooms a natural, organic touch.

The north-facing kitchen (pictured

opposite) - the oldest part of the house

thought to date back to the 1860s -

has been predominantly designed for

functionality: light floods the room from

two aspects - over the sink and from a

skylight. The hardy butcher-block work

surfaces are designed to maximise

workspace and provide a practical food

preparation area for a family of keen

cooks.

The kitchen cabinets are handmade,

with some of the drawers repurposed

from discarded materials from the

previous fitments. The cabinets hide more

unsightly items such as a fridge, oven, and

pots and pans for a fuss-free look.

Meanwhile, a lakeside retreat across the

Atlantic on the Danish island of Zealand

is pared back even more for a more

contemporary take on the pastoral style

to reflect it’s origins as a 1939 grocery

store.

Reconfiguring the diminutive 60 square

meter space, which originally comprised

a warren of small rooms, the ground floor

is now one open plan space comprising

a kitchen, dining area, and living room

(pictured below). Large double doors

open out onto the deck, allowing a warm

breeze to float in during the summer

months.

Just off the living area, separated by a

set of glass doors, is the guest room. An

oak “volcano” floor ties the entire space

together, and was carefully chosen to

be able to withstand the expansion and

contraction that comes with living close

to the water, and for its raw, natural

appeal.

The home adheres to minimalist style,

yet it boasts modern comforts such

as a state-of-the-art coffee machine,

French range stove, and streamlined

kitchen cabinets. Despite this, the couple

have veered away from an entirely

contemporary look, preferring to furnish

the space with items from different eras

and parts of the world. Antique Chinese

furniture, African artifacts, flea-market

finds, and gifts from friends sit beside

designer pieces and Danish works of art.

TRAVEL

NEW

HORIZONS

An incredible world is out there

to be explored. New horizons

offer fascinating cultures,

delicious and diverse cuisine,

awe-inspiring landscapes and a

tantalising sense of adventure.

World Journeys has put together

a range of small group escorted

tours with just this in mind.

Among the new and

exciting destinations for 2017

is Madagascar, an emerging

destination with much to offer

the traveller keen on wildlife and

traditional cultures. You will be

guaranteed a warm welcome

from the friendly locals who are

an eclectic mix of Indonesian,

French, Arab and African

descent. But of course the quirky

and charming lemurs are the

star of the show!

Another new tour in 2017

is to Burma and Bhutan – two

countries with strong traditions

protected from outside

influences for many years, and

both founded on Buddhist

principles. In Burma you’ll enjoy

a luxury river cruise on the

Ayeyarwady River, visiting small

villages and the famous plain of

temples in Bagan. In Bhutan a

standout highlight will be your

visit to the spectacular Tiger’s

Nest Monastery, perched

high on a cliff face of Bhutan’s

magnificent Paro valley.

Then to South America for

the vibrant bustling city of

Cuba. With three departures

scheduled for 2017, now is the

time to visit. Traveling through

the historic cities of Havana and

Santiago plus the colonial gems

of Trinidad and Camaguey,

dining in local paladares is a

real treat where one can also

enjoy a fun salsa lesson, sample

the local rum and explore

Havana in a classic 1950’s car.

Flights from New Zealand are

included, as is tipping, which is

handled by the host, but what

people value most when they

travel with World Journeys is

the conviviality group travel

offers.

There’s company if you want

it and time to do your own

thing. Every person brings

something to the mix - there

may be a keen photographer

in the group who can give

you some tips, or an seasoned

shopper who masters haggling

in the markets.

Life-long friendships have

been forged on tour, and many

return to travel with us again.

Travel is all about exploring

new horizons, but it’s also about

sharing the experience, and

that’s the beauty of travelling

with a group.

Word Journeys make

travelling to some of the world’s

most exciting, challenging and

exotic countries all the more

achievable in a small group of

like-minded Kiwi travellers.

With a maximum group

size of 18, all tours in the 2017

World Journeys brochure are

guaranteed to depart so you can

book with confidence.
