Post-quake homes:<br />

Why they cost so much<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

SINCE THE earthquakes, the<br />

cost of building new homes in<br />

Canterbury has risen by nearly 40<br />

per cent.<br />

Subdivisions have multiplied,<br />

with almost 15,000 new homes in<br />

Christchurch consented since January<br />

2011, together worth more than<br />

$4.6 billion.<br />

Average costs of the new build<br />

increase in dollar terms are not held.<br />

But in the past five years, the average<br />

home in Christchurch city has risen<br />

by more than $120,000.<br />

Statistics NZ surveys builders<br />

about the cost of construction materials,<br />

labour and total build prices, to<br />

calculate the cost of building.<br />

Its latest figures show the price<br />

of new homes in Canterbury, not<br />

including land, has risen by 39.7 per<br />

cent since the beginning of 2011, a<br />

lot faster than the 26.4 per cent rise<br />

in Auckland.<br />

Although the cost of materials and<br />

labour has risen, they haven’t risen<br />

nearly enough to account for the<br />

hike.<br />

Canterbury Registered Master<br />

Builders president Alastair Miles said<br />

a lot of the increase was in extra health<br />

and safety and compliance costs.<br />

A rule change in 2012 means scaffolding<br />

and safety netting must be<br />

used for even small, single-storey<br />

homes, which he said usually added<br />

about $5000-$15,000 per home, and<br />

could add delays.<br />

“All the emphasis on health and<br />

safety is a good thing, but it inflicts<br />

<strong>The</strong> cost of new homes has gone up 40 per cent since the<br />

earthquakes. Here’s where the money may be going:<br />

a lot of extra cost on construction,”<br />

he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> rules around foundations were<br />

also stricter, which he said could<br />

cost about $5000-$10,000 for a house<br />

on good land, and anywhere up to<br />

$100,000 on badly earthquake-damaged<br />

land.<br />

<strong>The</strong> boom in work had meant there<br />

was a lot more demand for good<br />

workers, which had pushed up the<br />

cost of labour substantially almost<br />

overnight, he said.<br />

According to Statistics New<br />

Zealand, wages in the construction<br />

industry in Canterbury have gone up<br />

more than 25 per cent since 2011. <strong>The</strong><br />

planning costs had also gone up, as<br />

Mr Miles said the process of putting<br />

plans through the city council had<br />

once cost about $1000, but could now<br />

cost about $5000. •Turn to page 4<br />

OUR FRONT page story<br />

today is fairly sobering. <strong>The</strong><br />

cost of building a new home in<br />

Canterbury has soared since the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

No rocket science in that but<br />

reporter Gabrielle Stuart finds<br />

out why it is costing so much and<br />

talks to people in the building<br />

and real estate industries.<br />

No wonder the insurance<br />

companies now insist on sum<br />

insured.<br />

And, on another sobering note,<br />

so to speak, there’s some amazing<br />

research happening into quelling<br />

the urge for a drink (see page 4).<br />

Two Christchurch people have<br />

had tiny implants put into their<br />

brains as part of Dunedin-based<br />

research into alcoholism.<br />

<strong>The</strong> research is a world first and<br />

its goal is to stop cravings.<br />

On pages 8-9 Gabrielle Stuart<br />

investigates a new way of setting<br />

up business premises in the city<br />

- rent a desk or space within an<br />

office.<br />

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST<br />

This week in history saw the end of the 1951<br />

Waterfront Strike on <strong>July</strong> 11. On <strong>July</strong> 13, 1905,<br />

construction of King Edward Barracks began. <strong>The</strong><br />

building was completed in 25 days. It was often the<br />

venue for large concerts and civic occasions. Severe<br />

gales with gusts up to <strong>14</strong>5km/h were recorded on <strong>July</strong><br />

13, 1945, followed by a record 280mm snowfall over<br />

the city on <strong>July</strong> <strong>14</strong>. On <strong>July</strong> 17, 1861, work began on the<br />

railway to Lyttelton. On <strong>July</strong> 17, 1964, the Government<br />

Life Building in Cathedral Square was opened. It was<br />

the city’s first “high rise glass box”. On <strong>July</strong> 17, 1979,<br />

Princess Anne visited the city.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bachelor sells for $550 at auction<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

THE BACHELOR NZ will<br />

take up the dating game again<br />

since dumping winner Fleur<br />

Verhoeven, after being bought<br />

at a charity auction.<br />

Jordan Mauger was a special<br />

guest at the High School Old<br />

Boys’ Rugby Football Club’s<br />

annual Ladies Night and Bachelor<br />

Auction on <strong>July</strong> 2.<br />

He was bought for $550 by a<br />

Because he had to leave<br />

THE CITY has always been<br />

dubbed the most English city<br />

outside of England.<br />

But the earthquakes claimed<br />

many heritage buildings, including<br />

Warners Hotel, Cranmer<br />

Centre, or left others partially<br />

intact like the Cathedral.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city council draft visitor<br />

strategy says, as a result, the city<br />

has lost much of its “external”<br />

identity – including its “Old<br />

English” theme, anchored by<br />

the Cathedral and “other notable<br />

inner city buildings”.<br />

It will, says the strategy,<br />

impact local pride and confidence<br />

and impede the city’s<br />

economic, social and cultural<br />

development.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city’s visitor economy has<br />

lost about $1 billion since the<br />

February 22, 2011 earthquake<br />

and the outlook is grim for the<br />

next two years.<br />

But Christchurch and Canterbury<br />

Tourism industry partnership<br />

manager Caroline Blanchfield<br />

said when selling the city,<br />

the “old English” identity never<br />

took centre stage – it was only a<br />

very small part of the story.<br />

Instead, the ‘Garden City’<br />

woman’s details and promised<br />

to take her out for lunch in his<br />

DeLorean car that featured in<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bachelor NZ.<br />

Club captain Alex Newfield<br />

said one of the eight rugby<br />

players to be auctioned off<br />

pulled out and Mauger, who is<br />

friends with some of the senior<br />

club players, stepped in.<br />

“When he got up on the stage<br />

the crowd was pretty excited.”<br />

Another star of the night<br />

was ‘the other Jordan’, who<br />

says he was seeing <strong>The</strong> Bachelor<br />

NZ runner-up, Naz Khanjani,<br />

for about four months<br />

was the selling<br />

concept, still<br />

very much alive<br />

alongside being<br />

“a gateway to the<br />

South Island”, she<br />

said.<br />

Canterbury<br />

University associate professor<br />

in marketing Ekant Veer said<br />

the “old English” brand meant<br />

more to the city personally as an<br />

identity, evidenced by the city<br />

council using the Cathedral as<br />

its logo.<br />

“That was the identity everyone<br />

focused inwards towards,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Veer understand why. He<br />

has a Cathedral tattoo, with<br />

the dates of the September and<br />

February earthquakes and the<br />

number of those who perished<br />

on his leg because he “never<br />

wanted to forget”.<br />

But he said despite this, he<br />

thinks the earthquakes and the<br />

Cathedral should not be central<br />

to how we market ourselves in<br />

the future.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is still a perception<br />

that we are a ruined city, all you<br />

see is a ruined Cathedral and<br />

that is bad for identity in my<br />

mind,” he said.<br />

before the show. Khanjani has<br />

denied she was dating Jordan<br />

Reid. Reid sold for about $250,<br />

and even had a beer with<br />

Mauger at the auction.<br />

More than $2000 was raised<br />

for the New Zealand Breast<br />

Cancer Foundation at the<br />

event.<br />

“A lot of people . . . want to<br />

go back. But we are a changing<br />

developing city with 30 to<br />

40,000 new immigrants for the<br />

rebuild . . . we need to adapt and<br />

develop,” he said.<br />

Tourism-wise, a “unique” identity<br />

is vital – and the Garden City<br />

may not be it, as many places had<br />

“good gardens”, he said.<br />

City’s damaged image<br />

GONE: Warners Hotel at 50 Cathedral Square was demolished<br />

in late 2011 after being damaged in the earthquakes.<br />

But Mayor Lianne Dalziel said<br />

the Garden City identity was<br />

still relevant but was much more<br />

about sustainability, as it was<br />

“parks and trees”.<br />

Mr Veer said the new identity<br />

may be a balance of old and<br />

new, a “cool lively” green sustainable<br />

city” – but it may take a<br />

while to find, he said.<br />

HOUSE FIRE ACCIDENTAL<br />

A fire that claimed the life of<br />

Raymond Burnett has been ruled<br />

as accidental. Fire investigator<br />

Mike Gaskin said the house<br />

fire in Cheviot last week started<br />

underneath the house. “It started<br />

in a central area underneath the<br />

floorboards,” he said. “It was an<br />

accidental fire. With what has<br />

happened and the serious nature of<br />

it, all we are prepared to say is that<br />

it is an accidental fire.”<br />

HEALTHCARE PETITION<br />

More than 400 people have signed<br />

a petition to keep some healthcare<br />

services at <strong>The</strong> Princess Margaret<br />

Hospital. <strong>The</strong> Canterbury District<br />

Health Board moved its elderly<br />

care services to Burwood Hospital<br />

last month, and plans to move<br />

the remainder of services out<br />

over the next three to five years.<br />

<strong>The</strong> petition is calling for the site<br />

to have elderly care services, a<br />

radiology department, mental<br />

health and maternity services and<br />

a space for community support<br />

teams.<br />

RUAPUNA LIAISON<br />

COMMITTEE<br />

A Ruapuna Community Liaison<br />

Committee has been set up to<br />

deal with the noise issues at the<br />

speedway. <strong>The</strong> city council set<br />

up the committee for Ruapuna<br />

Speedway as part of the<br />

Christchurch Replacement District<br />

Plan. It is likely to appoint Laurie<br />

McCallum as the independent<br />

committee chairman, whose roles<br />

would be to review complaints<br />

and noise monitoring, and review<br />

and discuss the success of noise<br />

reduction initiatives.<br />

SIREN REINSTATED<br />

<strong>The</strong> Sumner Lifeboat has reinstated<br />

its siren after five years. <strong>The</strong><br />

original siren, which alerted people<br />

when the lifeboat went out, used<br />

to sit at the community centre<br />

before it was demolished due to<br />

earthquake damage. <strong>The</strong> siren has<br />

been installed at the lifeboat station<br />

in Scarborough, and would be<br />

connected to the crew pager system<br />

Demand for big homes increases<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

THE DEMAND for mansions<br />

and large homes in Christchurch<br />

is growing, fuelled by wealthy<br />

people choosing to move to the<br />

city from other parts of New<br />

Zealand and from overseas.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spike goes against the<br />

trends, as property prices for<br />

most Canterbury homes are flattening<br />

out.<br />

Bayleys real estate agent Adam<br />

Heazlewood has several large<br />

homes currently listed on the<br />

market.<br />

He had noticed a marked increase<br />

in the number of inquiries<br />

from people living out of town, as<br />

well as a lot of interest from people<br />

in Australia and the United<br />

Kingdom.<br />

He believed progress on the<br />

rebuild, especially of the central<br />

city, had contributed to the interest.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> things I’m hearing from<br />

day to day are a lot more positive<br />

about what Christchurch is going<br />

to offer,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> property figures were<br />

released by Trade Me yesterday,<br />

and compare the average asking<br />

prices last month to those at the<br />

same time last year.<br />

Property prices have risen significantly<br />

each year since<br />

the earthquakes, but the latest<br />

figures show the growth may be<br />

slowing.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y show the average price<br />

for medium-sized, three to fourbedroom<br />

homes in Christchurch<br />

rose less than one per cent in that<br />

time, to $491,650.<br />

But the average price for large<br />

homes with five bedrooms or<br />

more rose more than 12 per<br />

cent, from about $650,000 to<br />

$732,450.<br />

Harcourts Christchurch<br />

business development manager<br />

Mike Mullen said there had been<br />

a lot of interest in bigger or<br />

higher priced homes.<br />

He said there had been a lot of<br />

inquiries from overseas buyers,<br />

and a tighter market with fewer<br />

properties available could also<br />

contribute.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> pressure’s certainly there,<br />

and anything that is a reasonable<br />

SALE: This<br />

five-bedroom<br />

home in<br />

Halswell is<br />

currently listed<br />

on Trade Me<br />

for $739,000+.<br />

<strong>The</strong> average<br />

asking<br />

price for<br />

Christchurch<br />

homes of that<br />

size is now<br />

$732,450. ​<br />

property certainly has a lot of<br />

interest in it.”<br />

He said the Harcourts sales<br />

figures also showed the rise in<br />

prices across the market were<br />

slowing, but it did not track the<br />

difference between larger and<br />

smaller homes.<br />

Why do post-quake cost so much?<br />

Alastair Miles<br />

•From page 1<br />

“It’s not builders pilfering the<br />

system or taking advantage.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are a lot of builders working<br />

extremely hard who won’t<br />

make money.”<br />

Because of the demand for<br />

labour, many new builders had<br />

to hire less skilled workers,<br />

which often meant mistakes<br />

were made and had to be fixed,<br />

he said.<br />

Although some tradespeople<br />

were driving big new trucks, that<br />

did not necessarily reflect big<br />

profits, he said.<br />

He said those who had not<br />

prepared for the rise in expenses<br />

were now struggling.<br />

Many of the flash new trucks<br />

were leased, and had been repossessed<br />

as businesses had gone<br />

under, he said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re are a lot of builders<br />

who aren’t great at using their<br />

money wisely, and when they see<br />

a positive cashflow they spend<br />

it. So it’s not actually a reflection<br />

potentially of them making<br />

money, they’re just confident of<br />

a good work stream and go and<br />

splash out.”<br />

Builders who were doing well<br />

were making a profit because<br />

they were taking on more<br />

volume of work, not because<br />

their margins had gone up, he<br />

said.<br />

As the residential rebuild work<br />

plateaued, he expected building<br />

prices to drop slightly, although<br />

many of the increased costs<br />

would stay the same.<br />

“As the market quietens you’re<br />

going to get more people competing<br />

for less work, so you will<br />

probably see potential dropping<br />

of rates. We are seeing that now<br />

with trades like painters, Gibstoppers,<br />

bricklayers, tilers. We’re<br />

getting cheaper rates coming<br />

through.”

Booze-beating brain implants<br />

• By Jamie Morton<br />

TWO Christchurch people<br />

have had tiny devices implanted<br />

in their brains in a world first<br />

experiment to beat alcoholics’<br />

cravings.<br />

<strong>The</strong> study, led by the University<br />

of Otago’s<br />

Professor Dirk De<br />

Ridder (right),<br />

is the first in<br />

the world to use<br />

implants to target<br />

craving processes<br />

in the brain to<br />

combat alcoholism<br />

and, if successful, could<br />

result in a new form of intervention.<br />

This week, Prof De Ridder,<br />

a neurosurgeon at Dunedin<br />

Hospital, inserted implants in<br />

two patients from Christchurch,<br />

bringing the number of participants<br />

in his study to six.<br />

By the end of the year, he<br />

hoped to have recruited 10<br />

patients.<br />

He is also introducing newly<br />

redesigned implants, cuttingedge<br />

neuro-stimulators specially<br />

made for the trials by United<br />

States-based St Jude Medical,<br />

which allow him to study a<br />

wider range of signals sent from<br />

the implant to specific circuits<br />

in the brain that controlled cravings.<br />

“Basically, it means that I’ve<br />

now got more languages with<br />

which to communicate with the<br />

brain, which hopefully should<br />

improve the outcome.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> technology is aimed at<br />

those whose health had been severely<br />

impaired by alcohol, and<br />

who had tried every other nonsurgical<br />

treatment available.<br />

Over recent times, scientists<br />

have increasingly been exploring<br />

whether subtly electrically<br />

stimulating certain parts of the<br />

brain could inhibit signals that<br />

fuelled cravings.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> main problem with current<br />

stimulators is that they are<br />

derived from pacemaker technology,<br />

and the heart is a relatively<br />

simple organ to stimulate,<br />

whereas the brain is somewhat<br />

more complex.<br />

“That’s why we’ve had to push<br />

the technology to create the bigger<br />

versatility – or enable more<br />

languages – that might improve<br />

the result.”<br />

Researchers in Germany have<br />

trialled implants to combat alcohol<br />

addiction but most of the<br />

participants had relapsed.<br />

However, that study had<br />

targeted reward processes in the<br />

brain, rather than cravings, he<br />

said.<br />

Cravings, stress and cues –<br />

such as walking past a bar or<br />

seeing alcohol in the supermarket<br />

– were the three main<br />

reasons why 80 per cent of<br />

people with alcohol addictions<br />

relapsed.<br />

“So you have to target one<br />

of those three. You can’t do<br />

anything about cues, and you<br />

can treat stress but that probably<br />

isn’t so efficient, so that’s why we<br />

opted to go after cravings.’’<br />

Results of the study have so<br />

far been promising: none of the<br />

participants have abused alcohol<br />

since surgery, and two had also<br />

been able to quit smoking.<br />

In Brief<br />

MAN SENTENCED AFTER<br />

INDECENT ACT<br />

A Christchurch man caught<br />

masturbating at a teenage<br />

girls’ softball game has been<br />

sentenced to 12-months intensive<br />

supervision. Martin Allen Graham<br />

appeared in the district court on<br />

Tuesday on charges of committing<br />

an indecent act and possession<br />

of cannabis. He was smoking<br />

cannabis before turning up to the<br />

game in March at Cowles Stadium.<br />

He watched the girls playing<br />

while masturbating for about five<br />

minutes until he was interrupted<br />

and ran off but was caught by<br />

police, who found a small amount<br />

of cannabis in his possession.<br />

$19,000 FOR UTO<br />

A Givealittle page set up to raise<br />

money for Uto Enosi Tuipulotu,<br />

who is battling a rare form of<br />

cancer, has raised more than<br />

$19,900. Uto moved to Akaroa<br />

from Tonga about four years ago<br />

to attend Akaroa Area School,<br />

and is now half way through his<br />

building apprenticeship. He has<br />

been diagnosed with sarcoma,<br />

and money is being raised to<br />

bring his family over to be with<br />

him, and to cover his ongoing<br />

treatment costs. To donate visit<br />

Final countdown for SCIRT programme<br />

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and<br />

retaining walls is now 91% complete and will finish in December.<br />

Almost 80% of our repair programme is focused on the city’s<br />

underground pipe networks.<br />

SCIRT has replaced 715km of pipes – the distance of a return trip<br />

between Christchurch and Dunedin. <strong>The</strong>se pipes are now invisibly doing<br />

their important job below ground.<br />

SCIRT has also repaired more than 120 bridges; this is 98% of the<br />

overall SCIRT bridge repair programme.<br />

After SCIRT, <strong>The</strong> Christchurch City Council and NZ Transport Agency<br />

will continue their programmes of ongoing repairs.<br />

Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the<br />

Otakaro, DCL’s six-figure salaries<br />

• By Shelley Robinson<br />

TWO PUBLICLY-owned<br />

companies spearheading the<br />

city’s rebuild have average salary<br />

rates in excess of $120,000.<br />

Development Christchurch<br />

Ltd, a city council controlled organisation,<br />

could average about<br />

$135,7<strong>14</strong>, while Otakaro Ltd, a<br />

Crown-owned company tasked<br />

with delivering the anchor<br />

projects, has an average salary of<br />

$123,333.<br />

Anglican Advocacy, a social<br />

justice agency, said organisations<br />

like the Government and city<br />

council which pay large salaries<br />

are “losing touch” with those<br />

struggling in the<br />

post-earthquake<br />

city.<br />

Manager Jolyon<br />

White (left) said<br />

they should lead<br />

by example.<br />

“Yes, those rates<br />

are wrong, but<br />

we as a society are accepting<br />

of that. We are a society of too<br />

much with an endless acceptance<br />

of too little. I would have less<br />

of a problem with people being<br />

highly paid if they weren’t also<br />

leaving people at the bottom end<br />

with insufficient [amounts] to<br />

raise their families on.”<br />

Canterbury’s average income<br />

is $30,100, and 35.8 per cent have<br />

an annual income of $20,000<br />

or less, according to the 2013<br />

census.<br />

But both DCL and Otakaro<br />

said they had to pay market<br />

rates in order to attract the right<br />

people to the roles of rebuilding<br />

the city.<br />

Neither could provide salary<br />

bands.<br />

DCL chief executive Rob Hall<br />

said: “To attract top candidates<br />

who will make a real difference<br />

for Christchurch and deliver<br />

results in their areas of expertise,<br />

DCL must offer competitive<br />

market salaries.”<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said<br />

the city council did not set the<br />

salaries and equating the average<br />

salary was mis-leading for<br />

DCL because there were only <strong>14</strong><br />

people.<br />

“If anyone needs to take<br />

CONSTRUCTION<br />

PROJECTS: <strong>The</strong><br />

average salary at<br />

Crown-owned<br />

company<br />

Development<br />

Christchurch<br />

Ltd is more<br />

than $123,000.<br />

<strong>The</strong> company<br />

is tasked with<br />

delivering anchor<br />

projects across<br />

the city.<br />

the lead on this, it’s the state<br />

sector, where remuneration of<br />

government department officials<br />

continues to drive expectations,”<br />

she said.<br />

Crs Raf Manji, Phil Clearwater<br />

and Yani Johanson said they<br />

would not comment on DCL<br />

salaries.<br />

But Cr Johanson said: “At a<br />

general level, I personally believe<br />

that council should be considering<br />

the issue of, and reporting<br />

on pay relativity, across the<br />

organisation and encouraging its<br />

companies to do the same.”<br />

Otakaro’s staffing structure, released<br />

to <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>, states it has 90<br />

employees – much trimmer than<br />

Cera’s 357 in December 20<strong>14</strong>.<br />

It has six departments with<br />

an emphasis on project management.<br />

Otakaro’s average salary is<br />

higher than that of Cera in 2015<br />

which was $109,910.<br />

If it was a Government department,<br />

it would be second only to<br />

the State Services Commission<br />

on $125,917.<br />

An Otakaro spokesman said a<br />

comparison with other Government<br />

departments would not be<br />

“meaningful” as it was a Crown<br />

company.<br />

Minister supporting Greater<br />

Christchurch Regeneration Gerry<br />

Brownlee would not comment<br />

as it was “a matter for Otakaro”.<br />

But Labour MP Megan Woods<br />

said the salaries were “high for<br />

Christchurch” but the real test<br />

was whether it was value for<br />

money.<br />

“He (Mr Brownlee) can’t hide<br />

behind the fact it is a Crownowned<br />

company to avoid answering<br />

questions and to be held<br />

accountable,” she said.<br />

I believe the<br />

elections are<br />

important for all<br />

of us – everyone’s<br />

voice must be<br />

included. Ko au,<br />

ko koe, ko tātou.<br />

It’s you, it’s me,<br />

it’s all of us.<br />

News<br />

How sharing office space<br />

Shared spaces, co-working, hot-desking,<br />

desk-surfing. Whatever you call it, there is no denying<br />

it’s a growing trend. Gabrielle Stuart spoke to some of<br />

the many Christchurch business people moving out of<br />

their offices and choosing instead to rent a desk<br />

WITH THE<br />

central city<br />

cordoned off after<br />

the February,<br />

2011, earthquake,<br />

hundreds of<br />

Cantabrians<br />

began working<br />

from home.<br />

Rebecca Tavete (above) was<br />

one of them.<br />

She was expecting a sense of<br />

freedom – working in comfort at<br />

home, at her own pace, without<br />

the stress of trying to make it to<br />

the office.<br />

“I definitely wasn’t prepared to<br />

feel isolated and distracted.<br />

“It was a sense of freedom<br />

to start with, but it gets on top<br />

of you when you’re not able to<br />

talk with those around you, and<br />

bounce ideas off them. Your<br />

thought process slows down and<br />

you feel out of the loop.”<br />

She also discovered housework<br />

and pets weren’t the only distractions<br />

when working at home.<br />

“Friends and family think<br />

you’re at home, so you’re not<br />

working. So they’ll pop in, which<br />

is great, but it’ll take up an hour,<br />

often your most productive<br />

hour.”<br />

Last week, she held the first<br />

open house at Argo, the coworking<br />

space she is creating in<br />

New Brighton, which she plans<br />

to open officially next month.<br />

Her vision was to create the<br />

space she wanted for her business.<br />

Somewhere you could have<br />

the flexibility of working from<br />

home, where “you can pop out<br />

of the office and go for a surf”,<br />

while keeping a network of<br />

creative business people to work<br />

alongside and having access to<br />

meeting rooms and spaces where<br />

clients can be hosted.<br />

Argo will be the newest coworking<br />

space in Christchurch,<br />

but far from the first.<br />

It follows C-Lab on St Asaph<br />

St, which opened in 2013, the<br />

Ministry of Awesome’s expanded<br />

Awesome HQ and HQ+, and <strong>The</strong><br />

Collect on Manchester St, which<br />

opened last year.<br />

By September, national coworking<br />

network BizDojo plans<br />

to open a huge shared space in<br />

the top two-storeys of the Kathmandu<br />

building, where up to 150<br />

people can co-work.<br />

But in spite of the number of<br />

spaces opening, the demand is<br />

growing faster.<br />

can be good for business<br />

SPACE: Areas to meet clients, like this one at <strong>The</strong> Collect<br />

co-working space, are some of the things people often miss<br />

when trying to run a business from home.<br />

PHOTO: NAOMI HAUSSMAN<br />

She works as a freelance event<br />

producer, and keeping a conventional<br />

office didn’t make sense as<br />

she often had to travel overseas to<br />

Australia or Hong Kong for her<br />

work.<br />

But working from home,<br />

as “a freelancer at the kitchen<br />

bench trying to be professional<br />

on Skype calls”, wasn’t working<br />

either.<br />

“I wanted a space where I could<br />

feel instantly at home, a hub of<br />

creativity where I could spark<br />

new ideas for the city,” she said.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re were risks involved in<br />

co-working.<br />

Just one person who did not fit<br />

in or work well with others could<br />

change the environment completely,<br />

so she said she had to be<br />

careful about who she accepted.<br />

She ran background checks on<br />

people coming in, and had a trial<br />

period when they signed up so if<br />

it didn’t work for either side they<br />

could back out.<br />

One of the attractions of <strong>The</strong><br />

Collect was the way residents<br />

shared their knowledge with one<br />

another, taking turns to host<br />

workshops on anything from<br />

digital marketing to how to optimise<br />

your website.<br />

For someone going out on their<br />

own, that kind of knowledge<br />

could be invaluable, she said.<br />

But it wasn’t just owneroperators<br />

or freelancers using<br />

co-working spaces.<br />

With six staff, Alan Cox’s business<br />

Fluent Scientific is too big to<br />

fit the usual bill for co-working<br />

spaces, but still too small to make<br />

keeping its own office work.<br />

Problems around office space<br />

could completely “hamstring”<br />

the growth of small businesses in<br />

Christchurch, he said.<br />

He said the cost of signing a<br />

lease and fitting out a building<br />

was huge for a small company,<br />

and even worse in the postearthquake<br />

environment where<br />

there was more demand for<br />

central offices.<br />

“You really don’t know how big<br />

you’re going to be 12 months, or<br />

even 18 months, out. So you’re<br />

left in a catch 22 situation, where<br />

you may be too big for where<br />

you are now, but it would be the<br />

wrong thing to do to sign up to a<br />

longer lease on more space than<br />

you might need.”<br />

Even if a small business did<br />

find its own office, he said isolation<br />

was another problem.<br />

With just a small number of<br />

staff, it was harder to build the<br />

social connections and networks<br />

needed to make a business thrive,<br />

he said.<br />

He has worked for big companies<br />

around the world and on<br />

his own small start ups, and said<br />

co-working combined “the best<br />

of both worlds”.<br />

He is based alongside three<br />

other larger businesses at the<br />

Ministry of Awesome HQ+ on<br />

Madras St.<br />

It runs alongside the Awesome<br />

HQ on St Asaph St, where about<br />

30 businesses are based and others<br />

“hot desk” temporarily.<br />

Chief awesome officer Lauren<br />

Merritt said the space was allowing<br />

people to start businesses<br />

without as much risk.<br />

MORE SPACE: Another<br />

meeting space at <strong>The</strong> Collect<br />

co-working office..<br />

PHOTO: NAOMI HAUSSMAN<br />

“<strong>The</strong> permanent spaces are relatively<br />

cheap, so it is not another<br />

barrier to start. People think if<br />

I fail it’s just a month-to-month<br />

contract, so it makes it really easy<br />

for people to test out their ides or<br />

start a business.”<br />

Rather than competing, many<br />

new business owners wanted to<br />

collaborate and help one another,<br />

she said.<br />

Sharing space allowed them to<br />

do that much more effectively.<br />

“I think it’s huge, because it’s<br />

showing a new way of business<br />

is possible. You don’t have to go<br />

work for a large firm and work<br />

your way up.”<br />

A MAN arrested on Friday<br />

night and then given bail<br />

on Saturday morning went<br />

on an alleged crime spree in<br />

Christchurch, Oamaru and<br />

Dunedin.<br />

Gary Cassidy Rolton, 28,<br />

was arrested and held in custody<br />

in the Christchurch Central<br />

Police Station cells overnight<br />

on Friday.<br />

appear in court.<br />

Playground’s tower of terror<br />

slide has reopened for the<br />

school holidays – with a<br />

security guard.<br />

Otakaro Ltd, which runs<br />

the playground, closed the 8m<br />

spiral slide and three towers on<br />

the weekend, after reports of<br />

children misusing the equipment.<br />

It comes as a photo of a<br />

Police did not oppose bail<br />

when he appeared in the<br />

district court on Saturday<br />

morning.<br />

But on Monday morning he<br />

was back in police custody after<br />

being arrested and charged<br />

for a string of offences.<br />

He was arrested near Coes<br />

Ford Recreation Reserve on<br />

Monday morning after abandoning<br />

a car and trying to flee<br />

from a police dog.<br />

A member of the public<br />

reported a suspicious Toyota<br />

RAV4 in the reserve, which<br />

had allegedly been abandoned<br />

by Rolton.<br />

child, running along the top of<br />

the tube net bridge, was posted<br />

on the city council Facebook<br />

page.<br />

An Otakaro spokesman said<br />

the area had reopened for the<br />

school holidays with a security<br />

guard present during the day<br />

to monitor the children playing.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spokesman said it had<br />

received a report of a child<br />

climbing on the outside of the<br />

equipment.<br />

Police discovered it was a<br />

stolen vehicle and sought in<br />

connection to a number of<br />

offences.<br />

On Saturday night its alleged<br />

Rolton stole the Toyota<br />

and a cycle from an address<br />

in Tai Tapu before heading to<br />

Dunedin.<br />

It is alleged he committed<br />

several burglaries in Dunedin<br />

before heading back north.<br />

On his way back he was<br />

allegedly involved in a police<br />

pursuit in Oamaru which was<br />

abandoned.<br />

Once back in Christchurch<br />

he allegedly burgled the<br />

He could not confirm<br />

whether it was the same child<br />

as in the photo.<br />

<strong>The</strong> new area was opened<br />

in June, which has a tube net<br />

bridge, rope stairs, a look-out<br />

and a nest seat.<br />

Otakaro was working with<br />

the equipment manufacturer<br />

to look at options on<br />

how to make the area safer, the<br />

spokesman said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> time frame will depend<br />

on the solution that is chosen.”<br />

Harringtons Brewery Bottle<br />

Store on Hills Rd, a dairy in<br />

Prebbleton and three more<br />

properties in Tai Tapu.<br />

It is also alleged he was involved<br />

in a burglary in Mairehau<br />

where he was disturbed<br />

by the property owner who he<br />

allegedly assaulted.<br />

He was arrested near Coes<br />

Ford on Monday morning after<br />

trying to flee from a police<br />

dog.<br />

Rolton appeared in court on<br />

Tuesday facing 15 charges and<br />

was remanded in custody until<br />

<strong>July</strong> 25.<br />

Further charges were likely.<br />

Working group looking<br />

at Cathedral’s future<br />

I KNOW there is considerable<br />

interest in seeing progress on<br />

the Christ Church Cathedral,<br />

and I’m confident we’re<br />

moving positively toward<br />

that goal. Ultimately,<br />

this is a decision for the<br />

Anglican Church, as they<br />

own the Cathedral, but<br />

the Government is doing<br />

everything it can to support<br />

a process where a sound,<br />

accurately-costed decision can<br />

be made.<br />

To that end, a working group<br />

is considering options for the<br />

re-instatement or replacement<br />

of the Cathedral and will, once<br />

a consensus has been reached,<br />

recommend the best way<br />

forward.<br />

On June <strong>14</strong>, I – in conjunction<br />

with Bishop Victoria Matthews<br />

– appointed the working<br />

group. Together with the<br />

Church Property Trust, we<br />

established a Christ Church<br />

Cathedral Working Group<br />

with the skills and experience<br />

to thoroughly consider<br />

re-instatement options, how<br />

it could be done and what the<br />

different options will cost.<br />

<strong>The</strong> group met for the first<br />

Gerry Brownlee<br />

time last month, and is already<br />

compiling a range of technical<br />

information and hearing from<br />

experts such as those working<br />

on projects of a similar nature.<br />

A report by Miriam Dean<br />

QC last year confirmed reinstatement<br />

of the Cathedral<br />

could be achieved through a<br />

combination of repair, restoration,<br />

reconstruction and seismic<br />

strengthening, but with a<br />

caveat around costs.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is strong public interest<br />

in what is happening to this<br />

iconic building, and I know<br />

people want to see the Church<br />

Property Trust able to reach<br />

a decision so that the city can<br />

move forward.<br />

<strong>The</strong> working group will be<br />

reporting back on a way<br />

forward by November 28 <strong>2016</strong><br />

and it will provide a final report<br />

to the Crown and Church<br />

Property Trust by December<br />

7 <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

We have given the group this<br />

time to allow for a thorough<br />

consideration of the options.<br />

I’m confident from their<br />

initial work, that the group<br />

– which has appointees from<br />

the Crown, Church Property<br />

Trust and Great Christchurch<br />

Buildings Trust – has the appropriate<br />

mix of skills and experience<br />

to deliver an appropriate<br />

outcome.<br />

I would encourage interested<br />

parties to allow the working<br />

group to get on with their<br />

work and support them when<br />

required.<br />

A reader responds to<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> story in which<br />

Philip Burdon and Jim<br />

Anderton said they<br />

have been gagged from<br />

talking publicly about the<br />

future of Christ Church<br />

Cathedral.<br />

Peter Banens – Gabrielle<br />

Stuart wrote a very interesting<br />

article in <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> on <strong>July</strong> 7 about<br />

Christ Church Cathedral, headed<br />

“Cathedral group say they are<br />

muzzled”.<br />

I think all those involved are<br />

passing the buck. Philip Burdon<br />

and Jim Anderton are right to<br />

complain about being “muzzled”.<br />

Gerry Brownlee, the prime<br />

minister, his cabinet, the Anglican<br />

Diocese, including Bishop Victoria<br />

among others, have all had fingers<br />

pointed at them.<br />

Some have done very little.<br />

While we put up with no<br />

action,why not cover up the gaping<br />

hole at the front of the cathedral?<br />

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

David Marra – John Key and<br />

his cabinet face an awful moral<br />

dilemma. On one hand, real estate<br />

barons, bankers and property<br />

investors, and upwardly mobile<br />

home-owners, who exploit untaxed<br />

capital gains to climb the property<br />

ladder, are over represented among<br />

their political support base. On the<br />

other hand, first home buyers, tenants<br />

paying unaffordable rents, and<br />

the homeless are less well represented<br />

among Key supporters. John Key<br />

and his cabinet have a moral choice<br />

to make between his political supporters’<br />

private property rights, and<br />

tenants, the homeless and first home<br />

buyers’ right to affordable housing.<br />

To date, Key and his cabinet have<br />

performed endless political contortions<br />

to show they are addressing the<br />

worsening housing crises, while aggressively<br />

defending his electorates’<br />

private property rights and rights<br />

to profiteer from untaxed capital<br />

gains, fuelled by run-away housing<br />

inflation and unaffordable tax-payer<br />

subsidised rents.<br />

Fast food outlet concern<br />

Tracie<br />

Charnock<br />

is a parent<br />

concerned<br />

about the<br />

fast food<br />

outlets being<br />

built so close<br />

to Linwood<br />

Avenue<br />

School and other schools in<br />

Christchurch. She writes about<br />

what concerns she has with<br />

this and what she wants to see<br />

change<br />

After a KFC was built straight<br />

across the road from my son’s<br />

primary school, I thought, is this<br />

okay?<br />

You can see the building and its<br />

advertisement from the school’s<br />

classrooms and playground. And the<br />

smell is strong enough to smell from<br />

the school also.<br />

So I spoke to the principal<br />

to find that schools don’t have a say<br />

of what gets built in the radius of a<br />

school.<br />

This to me was concerning. I put<br />

my concerns out there through the<br />

media and started a petition against<br />

fast food outlets being built in close<br />

proximity of schools.<br />

Since I started my petition back in<br />

late May, and put it out there to the<br />

media this, has been a topic of conversation<br />

with large support for.<br />

I have gathered 272 signatures to<br />

date and just started a online petition<br />

at www.change.org “No Fast Food<br />

Built Near Schools.”<br />

As a parent I support healthy<br />

eating for my children and the<br />

schools promote healthy eating<br />

in schools. Yet, I feel this is<br />

undermined when the fast food<br />

chains can build so close to a school.<br />

I feel these fast food chains are<br />

targeting young children and low<br />

decile areas, and the research seems<br />

to back it up.<br />

Researcher Peter Day and Geohealth<br />

lab co-director Dr Jamie<br />

Pearce (University of Edinburgh)<br />

conducted a study at the University<br />

of Canterbury in 2011 about fast food<br />

outlets clustered around schools.<br />

<strong>The</strong> study carried out found that<br />

fast food outlets are five and a half<br />

times more likely to build near<br />

schools than other areas. He also<br />

found the proximity of such outlets<br />

were highest around low decile<br />

schools.<br />

Since this I have had meetings with<br />

Labour MP Ruth Dyson and we have<br />

had a delegation hearing to put our<br />

concerns to the board which has now<br />

led to a hearing with the city council.<br />

I would like a bylaw passed to stop<br />

these fast food chains from building<br />

their outlets in close proximity of<br />

schools. Or give schools a say of what<br />

gets built within a 800m radius.<br />

Affordable housing<br />

LAST WEEKEND, the<br />

Labour Party turned 100. We<br />

had much to celebrate, but<br />

it was also a time to think<br />

about what the next Labour<br />

Government needs to do.<br />

Nearly two decades into<br />

the 21 st Century, one of our<br />

important jobs is one Micky<br />

Savage would understand –<br />

we need to make sure there<br />

are dry, warm and affordable<br />

houses for people.<br />

My electorate office in Hoon<br />

Hay has a steady stream of<br />

people struggling to access<br />

adequate housing. It is because<br />

of what we are seeing on the<br />

ground that Labour used its<br />

birthday party to announce a<br />

comprehensive plan to tackle<br />

housing issues.<br />

We’ll set up an Affordable<br />

Housing Authority to build<br />

more affordable homes for<br />

people to buy, undertake major<br />

revitalisation programmes<br />

and crack down on speculators.<br />

We’ll also end National’s<br />

state house sell-off and stop<br />

using Housing New Zealand<br />

as a cash cow, instead refocusing<br />

it on what it does best<br />

– looking after people in need.<br />

In Christchurch, we have<br />

an exciting opportunity to get<br />

the development of affordable<br />

housing going really fast. We<br />

already have special legislation<br />

in place and there are agencies<br />

like Regenerate Christchurch<br />

who could hit the ground running<br />

on this.<br />

Take the East Frame anchor<br />

project. Part of the Government’s<br />

blueprint plan to bring<br />

20,000 people back in to the<br />

inner city but we have yet to<br />

see any sign of construction<br />

beginning.<br />

Back in December 2015, a<br />

deal was signed with Fletcher<br />

Residential to develop nearly<br />

1000 townhouses in central<br />

Christchurch. <strong>The</strong> East Frame<br />

should have been well underway<br />

already but they are waiting<br />

for enough pre-sales.<br />

A Labour Government<br />

would not be content to sit<br />

back and watch this in-action.<br />

We would work alongside the<br />

parties to underwrite the risk<br />

and get some actual houses<br />

built.<br />

Innovation, and not the<br />

business-as-usual thinking<br />

of the current Government is<br />

what is required.<br />

John Key said the apartments<br />

would cost up to<br />

$900,000, but that the pricing<br />

was for Fletcher’s to determine.<br />

National are completely out<br />

of touch if they think townhouses<br />

costing as much as<br />

$900,000 are within the reach<br />

of most Cantabrians.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y have said they will not<br />

do anything to ensure that<br />

there are affordable options.<br />

We will. Labour’s plan will<br />

build homes that Cantabrian<br />

families can actually afford to<br />

buy. We will deliver east frame<br />

townhouses for $300,000-<br />

$500,000.<br />

<strong>The</strong> differences between<br />

Labour and National are clear.<br />

Labour will get cracking and<br />

build affordable houses.<br />

Peter Simmonds,<br />

unemployed, of<br />

Riccarton: I don’t want<br />

him as mayor. I think he<br />

is a good political activist,<br />

somebody on the outside,<br />

criticising institutions<br />

and people and making<br />

fair comment but as<br />

far as running the local<br />

council where he has to<br />

interact with a range of<br />

organisations including<br />

probably bodies with<br />

a lot of National party<br />

members on them, I don’t<br />

think it is a wise thing<br />

for him to be in charge<br />

of the council. A few<br />

years ago we had a lot of<br />

trouble with division on<br />

the council and I think<br />

he might produce that<br />

division again. I don’t<br />

give him a dog’s show<br />

going up against Lianne<br />

Dalziel.<br />

Helene Philpott, retired,<br />

of Russley: I think he’s a<br />

bit too radical. I would<br />

say no, he doesn’t stand<br />

much chance against<br />

Lianne Dalziel.<br />

Margaret Marshall,<br />

manager, of Sockburn:<br />

No, I think there are a few<br />

others that need to go there<br />

instead of him. I don’t<br />

think he has much chance<br />

against Lianne. Females all<br />

the way – it’s a trend at the<br />

moment! No, I wouldn’t<br />

vote for him.<br />

Peter Smith, retired, of<br />

Ilam: That would be a<br />

disaster. I should hope<br />

he doesn’t stand much of<br />

a chance. I would hope<br />

people realise his way<br />

out thoughts.<br />

Ben Seddon-Smith,<br />

student, of Ilam: To be<br />

honest I don’t know<br />

how I would feel<br />

about him as mayor of<br />

Christchurch. He has<br />

proved that he is quite<br />

politically active with<br />

the Springboks tour but<br />

other than that I don’t<br />

know too much about<br />

him. Lianne Dalziel is<br />

definitely the favourite,<br />

but we will just have to<br />

wait and see.<br />

Prior to the earthquakes the city’s external identity<br />

was partly built on its “old English” heritage. With the<br />

earthquakes claiming many of these buildings, we<br />

asked, what should our new identity be?<br />

Robyn Cahill, banker, of<br />

Halswell: At the moment<br />

it’s a lovely garden city. I’d<br />

like to see it maintained<br />

to what it has always<br />

been, a vibrant and lovely<br />

city. And for it to stay the<br />

Garden City.<br />

Kevin Wicks, foreman,<br />

of Dallington: We need<br />

an image that welcomes<br />

everyone. <strong>The</strong> central city<br />

is pretty important in that<br />

it can have everything. It<br />

shouldn’t just be business<br />

or tourist attractions, I<br />

think it needs something<br />

for everyone. We don’t<br />

want only tourists to use<br />

it or only business people<br />

to use the city. We want to<br />

invite everyone back into<br />

the city, I think the way<br />

we can do that is by having<br />

it open to businesses<br />

and to cafes.<br />

Ellisha Foon, student, of<br />

Riccarton: Christchurch<br />

is a city with potential<br />

and is thriving because it<br />

is a place where innovation<br />

is blossoming, but to<br />

me it will always be the<br />

Garden City. It’s unlike<br />

any place it New Zealand<br />

and although buildings<br />

will change, the natural<br />

environment shouldn’t.<br />

Paige Doak, retail<br />

manager, of Riccarton:<br />

It’s beautiful and friendly<br />

in Christchurch. I like<br />

the Garden City image<br />

but going forward I don’t<br />

think we have to stick to<br />

a certain image. People<br />

always comment about<br />

how beautiful the city is<br />

with the parks and cool<br />

wee walkways and things.<br />

I don’t think we should<br />

put a label on it because<br />

then we will feel like we<br />

have to stick to it. Our city<br />

is beautiful and unique<br />

and I think we have to<br />

keep that in mind. We<br />

shouldn’t try and make<br />

Christchurch look like<br />

other places around the<br />

world.<br />

Tim McMaster, student,<br />

of Sydenham: I don’t<br />

think we should put a<br />

label on it. Why do we<br />

have to be the Garden<br />

City or the cycle city<br />

or something else to<br />

promote us? We promote<br />

ourselves as clean green<br />

New Zealand so I think<br />

we should continue to<br />

promote that more as the<br />

city redevelops and moves<br />

forward.<br />

Ashleigh Johnson,<br />

student, of Leeston: I<br />

like the Garden City as it<br />

is. We have an awesome<br />

opportunity for it to<br />

grow and develop as the<br />

rebuild moves forward.<br />

We still have heritage but<br />

we have new buildings<br />

coming so that’s really<br />

exciting to see the city<br />

develop. I think the<br />

inner-city is mixing the<br />

old and new together<br />

really well.<br />

School’s long wait over<br />

Redcliffs<br />

School<br />

principal<br />

Rose<br />

McInerney<br />

talks<br />

about how<br />

it felt to<br />

hear Education Minister<br />

Hekia Parata announce the<br />

school would remain open<br />

It’s quite hard to explain the feelings<br />

of an interminable wait that<br />

was finally coming to an end.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Redcliffs board of trustees<br />

had now had quite a few meetings<br />

with Minister Hekia Parata<br />

to meaningfully engage on the<br />

importance of our school remaining<br />

open but this was to be<br />

the mother of all meetings.<br />

So much preparation had gone<br />

into what this day would reveal<br />

and there was a strong weight of<br />

responsibility in my heart and<br />

I’m certain in the hearts of those<br />

with me.<br />

Half of the board – Kent<br />

France, Mark Robberds, Steph<br />

Grieve and I met at the airport<br />

bright and early and ready to<br />

go. We faced the very interested<br />

media with our ongoing positive<br />

approach to how well we had<br />

problem solved the Minister’s<br />

concerns and felt hopeful for a<br />

change in decision for the Redcliffs<br />

School community. This<br />

issue had now reached out to all<br />

New Zealanders and we knew<br />

many had a deep interest in<br />

what Thursday’s result would be.<br />

We travelled to Wellington<br />

leaving our children in the confident<br />

and professional hands<br />

of our staff and the other half<br />

of the board of trustees. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

carried on their school day as<br />

normally as they possibly could,<br />

while we boarded our flight with<br />

the promise of any news coming<br />

straight to them the minute that<br />

we had it. So much invested in<br />

this process and so many people<br />

willing us to have good news for<br />

our community’s future.<br />

On arrival in Wellington<br />

we taxied to Parliament, had a<br />

quick coffee, and again were met<br />

by more media going in to the<br />

Beehive.<br />

We announced our arrival at<br />

reception and sat down to have<br />

our last chat about our approach<br />

for the two potential outcomes.<br />

So much time had been given to<br />

this final submission and it was<br />

truly crunch time.<br />

Before long we were welcomed<br />

into the Minister’s office with<br />

her large team of advisers and<br />

we waited for Minister Parata’s<br />

response with baited breath.<br />

While we had been banking<br />

on a positive decision when it<br />

actually came through there<br />

were enormous hugs both in<br />

Wellington and soon after in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

A united team of problem<br />

solving, invested, tenacious, determined<br />

individuals had come<br />

together and saved our Redcliffs<br />

School from closure. A feeling<br />

I will never forget and so proud<br />

to share in that piece of very<br />

important history.<br />

RELIEVED:<br />

Education Minister<br />

Hekia Parata<br />

announced that<br />

Redcliffs School will<br />

remain open.<br />

Big community<br />

effort pays off<br />

Green MP<br />

Eugenie<br />

Sage says<br />

the Redcliffs<br />

School decision<br />

was great news<br />

Congratulations<br />

to everyone in<br />

the Redcliffs School community<br />

for the sustained and successful<br />

advocacy to keep Redcliffs School<br />

as a local school. Standing up for<br />

what you believe in helps create<br />

change in politics.<br />

Overturning Education Minister<br />

Hekia Parata’s interim decision<br />

last November that Redcliffs<br />

School would close by the end<br />

of this year has taken a massive<br />

effort. It has involved inspired<br />

leadership from the school board<br />

of trustees, a determined effort<br />

by parents, energy from students<br />

and creative engagement with the<br />

media and the wider community.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Minister’s decision will ensure<br />

that Redcliffs School, either<br />

on the Main Rd site or another<br />

site such as Barnett Park, remains<br />

the hub of its community.<br />

Elsewhere in education, the<br />

news has been less welcome.<br />

In a surprise Budget move, the<br />

Government decided to freeze<br />

funding for schools’ operational<br />

grants.<br />

This means there will be more<br />

pressure on parents to “donate”<br />

even more for their children’s<br />

education. This puts quality education<br />

under strain and erodes<br />

the right to a free education.<br />

Operational funding goes<br />

into essentials such as heating,<br />

computers for students, learning<br />

support, property maintenance,<br />

and relief teachers.<br />

We need regular funding increases<br />

to keep up with increased<br />

costs. Between 2010 and 20<strong>14</strong><br />

parents forked out $791.3 million<br />

to subsidise their children’s education<br />

with donations.<br />

Redcliffs School Fair is one of<br />

the largest and most successful in<br />

Christchurch in raising funds to<br />

help students learn. Lower decile<br />

schools will suffer the most, as<br />

their ability to fundraise is more<br />

constrained.<br />

As well as protecting the right<br />

of students to be able to attend<br />

their local neighbourhood<br />

school, we need to ensure that<br />

funding for education keeps up<br />

with inflation.<br />

A CHRISTCHURCH start-up<br />

developing cat’s eyes that can<br />

collect big data on traffic and<br />

conditions on our roads is one<br />

of 10 to be selected for fasttracking<br />

through Vodafone’s<br />

innovation lab.<br />

SolarBright is one of 10 startups<br />

and SMEs chosen to take part<br />

in Vodafone xone, a business accelerator<br />

designed to nurture the<br />

best ideas and Kiwi talent in the<br />

research and commercialisation<br />

of world-class technology.<br />

<strong>The</strong> company has been around<br />

for nine years and its founders,<br />

husband and wife team Pat and<br />

Nicola Martin, have focused on<br />

solar road-side lighting.<br />

Pat Martin has since been<br />

designing cat’s eyes that can<br />

track big data and transmit it to<br />

a device that can build a picture<br />

of the roading conditions like<br />

weather, traffic flows and air<br />

quality.<br />

Mr Martin said he was interested<br />

in the opportunities Vodafone<br />

presented in terms of taking his<br />

design to the world.<br />

“Vodafone is a beast all over<br />

the world. We’re trying to take<br />

our technology globally . . . so<br />

to have such a beast is a perfect<br />

partnership.”<br />

Connectivity is a key factor in<br />

his cat’s eyes reliability, so having<br />

access to a closed network in<br />

Vodafone xone for trials would<br />

be useful he said.<br />

Vodafone’s consumer director<br />

Matt Williams said the 10 companies<br />

were selected from more<br />

than 170 applications.<br />

“We wanted to spread our<br />

wings a bit and get involved<br />

with a broader set of companies.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s a bit of golden age of entrepreneurship<br />

in New Zealand.”<br />

Each company will receive a<br />

total package worth more than<br />

$150,000, including<br />

$25,000 in seed-funding and<br />

mentoring as part of a six-month<br />

programme.<br />

Vodafone xone and SolarBright<br />

are based in central Christchurch.<br />

“Christchurch is a real technology<br />

and innovation hub for New<br />

Zealand,” Mr Williams said.<br />

INNOVATIVE: Nicola and<br />

Pat Martin have designed<br />

cat’s eyes which can track<br />

and transmit data (below).<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re’s a huge amount of<br />

energy and activity there.”<br />

Callaghan Innovation has<br />

committed $900,000 to Vodafone<br />

xone over the next three years to<br />

help fund the Innovation Lab for<br />

research and development. <strong>The</strong><br />

facility, containing specialised<br />

technology worth $19 million,<br />

will be open to the xone companies.<br />

Household debt at high level<br />

• By Simon Hartley<br />

LOW INTEREST rates and<br />

windfalls from escalating<br />

house prices have household<br />

debt sitting at higher levels<br />

than before the 2007-08 global<br />

financial crisis, highlighting<br />

the economy’s vulnerability to<br />

unfavourable changes.<br />

While New Zealand’s household<br />

debt levels have continued<br />

to break records, the debt<br />

servicing costs remain low, most<br />

lending is secured against assets<br />

and lenders have been independently<br />

tightening access credit,<br />

Westpac senior economist Satish<br />

Ranchhod said.<br />

“One of the key issues<br />

confronting the New Zealand<br />

economy is a build-up of debt<br />

in the household sector. Over<br />

2015, household debt rose<br />

to levels higher than those<br />

reached prior to the financial<br />

crisis,’’ he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latest Reserve Bank<br />

figures showed the trend had<br />

continued in early <strong>2016</strong> and<br />

household debt was now at levels<br />

equivalent to 163 per cent<br />

of annual household disposable<br />

income, Mr Ranchhod said.<br />

“A key contributor to this<br />

trend has been historically low<br />

interest rates.<br />

<strong>The</strong> present low interest<br />

rates had provided a powerful<br />

boost to asset prices, particularly<br />

for housing, he said.<br />

“And as has historically<br />

been the case, strength in the<br />

housing market has seen home<br />

owners spending some of the<br />

windfall they perceive when<br />

the value of their house rises,<br />

while aspiring buyers must<br />

borrow more,’’ Mr Ranchhod<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> net effect was an increase<br />

in both borrowing and<br />

spending, he said.<br />

Compared with other developed<br />

economies, household<br />

debt-to-GDP in New Zealand<br />

was “relatively high’’ and was<br />

consistent with strong growth<br />

in house prices.<br />

Contributing factors to the<br />

debt trend include recordlow<br />

interest rates, which have<br />

boosted housing demand,<br />

and a housing supply that has<br />

not kept up with population<br />

growth, especially in Auckland.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>se conditions have<br />

made it very attractive for<br />

investors to purchase residential<br />

property using debt,’’ Mr<br />

Ranchhod said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> strong growth in house<br />

prices also meant owner-occupiers<br />

were having to borrow<br />

more to purchase housing.<br />

Mr Ranchhod said “trends<br />

in debt levels over time can<br />

alert us to the build-up of<br />

risk’’.<br />

Some pick-up in debt levels<br />

was not a problem for an<br />

economy and was actually a<br />

sign monetary policy was operating<br />

as expected, he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Reserve Bank had set<br />

interest rates at low levels to<br />

boost domestic activity, which<br />

was helping offset headwinds<br />

in externally focused parts<br />

of the economy and households’<br />

appetite for debt would<br />

continue to support economic<br />

activity for the next few years,<br />

he said.<br />

However, rising household<br />

debt raised important concerns<br />

for the longer-term<br />

economic outlook.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bachelor<br />

• By Russell Blackstock<br />

JORDAN MAUGER has<br />

been transformed from<br />

smoothie to slob for his<br />

first big TV appearance<br />

since <strong>The</strong> Bachelor NZ<br />

ended in controversy in<br />

May.<br />

He has swapped his<br />

tuxedo for toe-curling<br />

1980s clobber and a dodgy<br />

moustache to return as<br />

slippery pawn shop boss<br />

Rob Nugent in the second<br />

season of TV3 smash<br />

Westside.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 32-year-old from<br />

Christchurch was vilified<br />

for dumping Fleur<br />

Verhoeven just days after<br />

she was crowned the<br />

winner of <strong>The</strong> Bachelor NZ.<br />

But Mauger thinks people<br />

might be hard pushed<br />

to even recognise him<br />

in Westside as he is 25kg<br />

heavier than he was before<br />

starring in the reality dating<br />

show.<br />

“When I first saw the<br />

script I felt my character<br />

Rob needed to be fatter<br />

and bit slobbier,” he told<br />

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

Our People<br />

Adam Gard’ner<br />

<strong>The</strong> men behind the beach<br />

Brothers-in-law Adam<br />

Gard’ner and Duane Major<br />

have spent the week ‘in<br />

paradise’, officially handing<br />

over the private Awaroa<br />

Inlet beach brought<br />

by New Zealanders<br />

through their fundraising<br />

campaign. Mr Gard’ner<br />

spoke to Gabrielle Stuart<br />

from the Abel Tasman<br />

about the ups and downs<br />

of the campaign<br />

So what has the atmosphere<br />

been like on the beach?<br />

It has been really amazing, and<br />

quite emotional. We’ve always<br />

said this is a real privilege to be<br />

part of, but at the ceremony on<br />

Sunday with the full powhiri and<br />

people travelling from across the<br />

country to be part of it, it was<br />

really humbling. <strong>The</strong> amount of<br />

positive people power has been<br />

incredible. It makes you proud to<br />

be a Kiwi.<br />

So take me back to the beginning.<br />

Where did this whole<br />

thing start?<br />

It was Christmas Day. We<br />

always get together as a family<br />

over Christmas and talk about<br />

all sorts of stuff. Who’s in the<br />

Crusaders team, how the Tactix<br />

are doing, education in New<br />

Zealand, that kind of thing. Duane<br />

and I had both seen the ad<br />

for the beach, so there was a bit<br />

of banter, saying we could buy<br />

it for New Zealand. Initially we<br />

thought we could get 100 people<br />

to put in quite a lot of money,<br />

then we said what if everyone<br />

pitched in a couple of bucks?<br />

So a lot of people have these<br />

kind of crazy ideas – how did<br />

it get from that point to a real<br />

campaign?<br />

TEAMWORK:<br />

Christchurch<br />

brothers-inlaw<br />

Duane<br />

Major and<br />

Adam<br />

Gard’ner<br />

(right),<br />

who ran a<br />

successful<br />

campaign<br />

raising almost<br />

$2.28m to<br />

buy an Abel<br />

Tasman<br />

beach. ​<br />

Well, it was really our families<br />

who said ‘okay, why don’t you do<br />

anything about it?’ A couple of<br />

weeks went past and we digested<br />

the idea and mulled it over. We<br />

weren’t afraid of failing, we<br />

thought we could do it. But the<br />

toughest thing was showing<br />

ourselves to the public, saying<br />

this is us, this is what we’re<br />

trying to do. It makes you quite<br />

vulnerable. But after a couple of<br />

weeks we went for a walk with<br />

our families and it came up, and<br />

it was a real ‘I will if you will’<br />

moment. We both put messages<br />

on our Facebook pages and had<br />

positive feedback so we thought<br />

why not? In the first few days,<br />

only a few pledges were made, so<br />

we thought okay, oh well. <strong>The</strong>n<br />

we got a little bit of media attention<br />

and it blew up from there.<br />

I’ll always remember that moment<br />

we hit $70,000. I thought<br />

that is a lot of money, we might<br />

be able to pull this off.<br />

And you did it all around<br />

full-time work?<br />

Yes, Duane does youth work<br />

for a church, and I work for Tennis<br />

NZ and the Waimairi Tennis<br />

Club, but both our work gave us<br />

space to get it done. We both still<br />

had to work, but we went into<br />

over-drive after work until 1am<br />

or 2am sometimes. I basically<br />

based myself at Duane’s after<br />

work for a few weeks, but both<br />

our families were incredibly<br />

understanding. <strong>The</strong>y were a huge<br />

part of it, but also gave us our<br />

space when we needed it.<br />

that now belongs to us all<br />

And where were you when you<br />

heard the news you had won the<br />

beach?<br />

Well, Duane had gone on Paul<br />

Henry’s show that morning and<br />

said everyone’s invited to our<br />

place for the announcement, so<br />

we had big news crews there and<br />

complete strangers wandering up<br />

the driveway, saying I’m here for<br />

the party, which was awesome.<br />

We had a sausage sizzle, and the<br />

coffee machine going. But we<br />

hadn’t heard anything, so we<br />

were getting ready to make an<br />

announcement on national TV<br />

that we didn’t make it, when I got<br />

an email saying hold on. It was<br />

about 10.30 that night that we<br />

finally heard and, by then, most<br />

people had headed home. We<br />

always wanted to share the whole<br />

story with everyone, so our first<br />

instinct was how are we going to<br />

message that. But we did take a<br />

few minutes to have a few hugs,<br />

there were pretty big smiles on<br />

our faces.<br />

Were there people who made<br />

donations that particularly<br />

stood out to you?<br />

That’s really hard to answer,<br />

because they really all did. We<br />

had people donating 50 cents for<br />

each grandchild, for example,<br />

SOLD: <strong>The</strong> Awaroa Inlet beach is now part of the Abel Tasman<br />

National Park, and will be maintained for the public by the<br />

Department of Conservation.<br />

and those donations were just<br />

as important as the big pledges.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re were small companies and<br />

cafes and schools who got behind<br />

it, so when we reached the total<br />

of 39,000 pledges, really there are<br />

thousands more people behind<br />

that, because some pledges represented<br />

groups. <strong>The</strong> Government<br />

were really generous, as well<br />

as people who gave us advice.<br />

Givealittle was amazing and did<br />

a huge amount of work on it, and<br />

the media were with us all the<br />

way.<br />

So tell me about some of your<br />

favourite memories on the<br />

beach?<br />

Well, we’ve both spent time up<br />

here. Duane, a youth worker has<br />

done a lot of work here, and he<br />

and my wife, because they are<br />

siblings, have taken groups up<br />

here. We holiday up here, too, so<br />

CAMPAIGNING: <strong>The</strong> team gave regular “Our News” video<br />

updates during the campaign. In this one, Mr Gard’ner was away<br />

so appeared as a figure drawn on cardboard.<br />

there have been some wonderful<br />

family times for us up here and<br />

all over the Abel Tasman, but I’ve<br />

got to say Sunday would be pretty<br />

hard to beat. When Duane spoke<br />

on Sunday, he said all his kids<br />

have been in the womb on the<br />

beach, and he and his brother,<br />

Kerry, who died a few years ago,<br />

kayaked into the beach. That is<br />

part of why keeping the land for<br />

everyone is so important, because<br />

it provides memories and stories<br />

that keep us connected.<br />

Countdown to Rio<br />

Shaw’s third chance at gold<br />

<strong>The</strong> Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games are less<br />

than a month away. Sports reporter Gordon<br />

Findlater counts down to Rio, highlighting some<br />

of our brightest talents. This week we look at<br />

Canterbury’s Brad Shaw who hopes to claim a<br />

medal in his third games with the Black Sticks.<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

HURRY<br />

LIMITED STOCK!<br />

BRAD SHAW is hoping its a<br />

case of being third time lucky at<br />

the Rio Olympics.<br />

After what he describes as<br />

inconsistent performances from<br />

New Zealand squads in Beijing<br />

and London, he’s hopeful the<br />

Black Sticks have the right plan<br />

going into this year’s games.<br />

“At previous games, we’ve<br />

played really well, but have<br />

struggled to get results against<br />

weaker opposition we should be<br />

beating. In Beijing we could only<br />

manage a draw with China, and<br />

in London we lost our opening<br />

game to Korea. We should be<br />

beating them nine out of 10<br />

times,” said Shaw.<br />

Now an experienced Olympian,<br />

he is also aware of the foreign<br />

environment players must<br />

be prepared for. He described<br />

his first experience in Beijing as<br />

eye opening, even to the point of<br />

seeking a sports psychologist a<br />

week into the event.<br />

“It’s not something you get<br />

used to, you just have to be<br />

prepared. <strong>The</strong> media hype and<br />

Olympic village are huge.”<br />

Shaw claimed his spot in New<br />

Zealand hockey folk-law in 2008,<br />

when New Zealand faced Argentina<br />

in an Olympic qualifier. <strong>The</strong><br />

match went into sudden-death<br />

extra time. Shaw grabbed the<br />

match-winning goal for the<br />

Black Sticks, booking their spot<br />

in the Beijing Olympics.<br />

“I haven’t scored too many<br />

goals in my career, but seem to<br />

have a knack for scoring memorable<br />

ones.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> defender comes from<br />

a proud hockey family. Older<br />

brother Hayden Shaw represented<br />

the Black Sticks at the<br />

2004 and 2008 Olympics and<br />

was known as the drag-flick shot<br />

expect during his career.<br />

Brad Shaw began playing<br />

hockey at age four, playing in<br />

the local park. He played his first<br />

competitive hockey for club-side<br />

Selwyn, which his father also<br />

played for. Shaw still plays for the<br />

club now known as Southern following<br />

the amalgamation of the<br />

Selwyn and Sydenham.<br />

While at Shirley Boys’ High,<br />

he helped the school during a<br />

successful period for its hockey<br />

team. He playing alongside the<br />

likes of former New Zealand<br />

international cricketer Michael<br />

Papps, who he described as a<br />

handy mid-fielder.<br />

Canterbury’s provincial men’s<br />

team didn’t acquire the services<br />

of Shaw until 2004. Prior to<br />

that, he travelled north to play<br />

for Midlands, due to what he<br />

described as a different view in<br />

playing styles to the Canterbury<br />

set-up at the time.<br />

Former Black Sticks assistant<br />

coach Andrew Hastie was Shaw’s<br />

first Canterbury men’s coach and<br />

was impressed with the player he<br />

had seen come through various<br />

age group teams.<br />

“He was a really strong player.<br />

Uncompromising. He’s one of<br />

those guy’s that always plays<br />

with his heart. He wears it on<br />

his sleeve and he just goes for it,”<br />

said Hastie.<br />

Shaw has since become Canterbury<br />

captain, a role Hastie<br />

believes the 33-year-old thrives<br />

in.<br />

“He’s our go-to player, always<br />

gives 100 percent. He plays the<br />

game in the right spirit and gives<br />

everything on the field.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> 2004 Champions Trophy<br />

was Shaw’s first international<br />

tournament, making his debut<br />

against Pakistan. Hardly given<br />

the ideal start to his international<br />

career, he first took to<br />

the field for 30 seconds while a<br />

team-mate addressed a broken<br />

shoe lace.<br />

Since then, he has gone on to<br />

represent New Zealand at two<br />

Olympic Games, two Commonwealth<br />

Games and a Hockey<br />

World Cup.<br />

Being a teacher at St Andrew’s<br />

Preparatory School, having a<br />

family and an international<br />

hockey career has been a fine<br />

balancing act.<br />

“My wife is [the one] to thank.<br />

I’ve also taken a lot of time off<br />

teaching through the second<br />

and third terms of school to get<br />

myself ready for Rio. It’s a big<br />

decision to make with work, a<br />

family and the Olympic Games,”<br />

said Shaw.<br />

When Shaw returns to his<br />

CLEARANCE LINES!<br />

HOCKEY HERO: Canterbury<br />

Cavaliers captain Brad Shaw<br />

will head to his third Olympic<br />

Games with the Black Sticks.<br />

He believes the experiences<br />

of Beijing and London can<br />

work in his team’s favour.<br />

teaching job at the conclusion of<br />

the Olympics, let’s hope he has<br />

a new piece of memorabilia to<br />

show off to his students.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Black Sticks open their<br />

Olympic campaign against Australia<br />

Melissa McDonnell<br />

Divide and conquer<br />

AS A family of six,<br />

planning a holiday can be<br />

tricky.<br />

Trying to book flights<br />

in school holidays often<br />

results in high prices,<br />

terrible flight schedules,<br />

and a logistical feat to find<br />

accommodation (who can<br />

easily house an extra six<br />

people?) and car transport<br />

(it can cost up to $1000 a<br />

week to hire a seven-seater<br />

vehicle). To be fair, it’s<br />

often a better option to<br />

simply stay at home.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se school holidays<br />

we were tempted to do just<br />

that. However, my eldest<br />

two girls were dead set on<br />

heading up to the North<br />

Island to stay with their<br />

grandparents and catch up<br />

with cousins and friends.<br />

While I scouted around<br />

for deals, the cost to get us<br />

all up there was exorbitant.<br />

So, in a last minute decision,<br />

we decided to divide<br />

and conquer and send only<br />

half of the family away<br />

– my hubby and our two<br />

eldest will spend a week in<br />

Hawkes Bay, while I will<br />

stay at home in Christchurch<br />

with the twins.<br />

Splitting the family for<br />

holidays is not something<br />

that I had ever envisaged,<br />

but on reflection, it’s possibly<br />

the best scenario in this<br />

current stage of our lives.<br />

While there is only a<br />

four-year gap between<br />

our eldest and youngest,<br />

it’s considerable when it<br />

comes to what we can do<br />

as a family. Most activities<br />

revolve around catering to<br />

the lowest-aged denominator,<br />

which means most of<br />

what we do is based on<br />

what a two-and-half year<br />

old can handle.<br />

This can sometimes lead<br />

to frustration for our five<br />

and six year old girls, who<br />

are now at an age when<br />

they are seeking to challenge<br />

themselves further in<br />

their everyday play.<br />

So, when we were<br />

presented with the idea<br />

of dividing our family for<br />

these holidays, it seemed<br />

the best solution for everyone.<br />

And with the break<br />

now upon us, our big girls<br />

are super excited about the<br />

adventures ahead.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will spend one<br />

week on the farm with<br />

their Dad, enjoying long<br />

walks in the hills, tree<br />

climbing, helping with<br />

the animals and exploring<br />

down at the creek.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y have movie and<br />

theatre dates planned with<br />

their cousins; birthday<br />

parties and road trips to<br />

visit their great-grandmother,<br />

and no doubt, late<br />

nights and impromptu<br />

high-jinks that come with<br />

being on holiday. <strong>The</strong>y will<br />

have flexibility, last-minute<br />

options and no doubt will<br />

extend themselves to their<br />

limit.<br />

That’s not to say the<br />

twins and I won’t have<br />

our own fun either. I will<br />

be able to focus on the<br />

age-appropriate activities<br />

that I know they will love<br />

doing – Tumble Times,<br />

the museums, various<br />

playgrounds around the<br />

city, and otherwise, simply<br />

wandering at the pace and<br />

direction of two curious<br />

toddlers.<br />

I’m looking forward to<br />

unstructured days without<br />

drop-offs, pick-ups or<br />

after school activities. Our<br />

days will be filled with<br />

slow and unplanned play,<br />

pottering and spontaneous<br />

adventure that I know<br />

my Twiglets will love and<br />

enjoy.<br />

To that end: I think these<br />

holidays will be a great hit<br />

for everyone.<br />

We will miss each other<br />

terribly though. Skype<br />

nights have already been<br />

scheduled, and the big girls<br />

have already made plans<br />

for the fun they will all<br />

have once they are reunited<br />

with their little sisters.<br />

Until then, it’s going to<br />

be a quiet house – cooking<br />

for three and having only<br />

two kids to look after will<br />

be quite a change. In that<br />

sense, I guess a change will<br />

be as good as a holiday!<br />

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

Taste<br />

Ever wondered<br />

who is cooking<br />

your food when<br />

you go out to a<br />

cafe or restaurant?<br />

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

its series talking<br />

with chefs.<br />

Bishop Brothers<br />

head chef –<br />

Kathryn Ahu.<br />

Up for any challenge<br />

at work or home<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

KATHRYN AHU was head chef<br />

running her own kitchen before she had<br />

even finished studying.<br />

She was 19 and working at a hotel in<br />

Hamilton, when the head chef and sous<br />

chef both stood down at once.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> owner asked me if I wanted to<br />

step up as head chef. I said: ‘Well, let me<br />

just go home and talk to my parents’.”<br />

After two years running the kitchen<br />

she took a step back to accept a sous chef<br />

job at the Hamilton Belgian Beer Cafe.<br />

But within a year and a half she was<br />

head chef there, this time running two<br />

restaurants.<br />

Moving to the top so fast meant she<br />

had to learn quickly, but she said it also<br />

kept her humble.<br />

“I scrub my own rangehood and sweep<br />

and mop the floor, so I would never ask<br />

my staff to do something I wouldn’t do<br />

myself. I think we’re all a team.”<br />

About 12 years ago, she moved to<br />

Christchurch, “following a man”.<br />

Although the relationship didn’t work<br />

out, she fell in love with Canterbury.<br />

Taking a job at the Christchurch Gondola<br />

Pinnacle Restaurant helped, as she<br />

said the views were absolutely beautiful –<br />

although nature could also be a problem.<br />

“Sometimes you’d get a call saying you<br />

have to get down in 10 minutes or you’ll<br />

be stuck, because the wind’s picking up.<br />

Once we did get stranded and had to<br />

walk down.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> challenges in her next role at Cafe<br />

Izone in Rolleston were quite different –<br />

attracting people to an industrial area,<br />

creating a family-friendly menu and<br />

mastering stonegrill.<br />

But it won Best New Restaurant in the<br />

first year open, and she said it grew in<br />

popularity from there.<br />

She started in March at the newlyopened<br />

Bishop Brothers Public House, at<br />

the former Farrington’s Tavern site.<br />

She said the owners wanted to “step it<br />

up a little, restaurant style”, while keeping<br />

the suburban, homely flavour and<br />

reasonable prices.<br />

It was a challenge she was up for.<br />

She said it was her love for food that<br />

drove her, and her enjoyment of experimenting<br />

with different flavours and<br />

ingredients, both at work and at home.<br />

“A lot of people say no, I don’t cook at<br />

home, but I say if you have a passion for<br />

cooking why wouldn’t you?”<br />

With a partner who worked as a personal<br />

trainer and was ex-army, she said<br />

a lot of the meals she cooked after work<br />

were big and hearty.<br />

She enjoyed being part of rebuilding the<br />

hospitality scene in Christchurch, but said<br />

it was sad to see how much had been lost.<br />

“You can always open another Mexican<br />

restaurant or Italian restaurant, but<br />

knowing people who have lost everything<br />

is the sad thing.”<br />

She said the way people dined out in<br />

Christchurch had changed.<br />

“I suppose it’s a comfort, when you can<br />

go out and have a really lovely time and<br />

enjoy your meal. I think we’re enjoying<br />

life a bit more, because it was a huge<br />

shock to the system that in a matter of<br />

minutes something can be taken from<br />

you so fast.”<br />

Wales, when he spotted a tree he<br />

couldn’t identify.<br />

And what unfolded was the<br />

discovery of a tree thought lost, for<br />

hundreds of years.<br />

This rare plant is happy in most<br />

spots in the garden and is adaptable<br />

to life in a large tub or pot; it would<br />

make the perfect Christmas tree and<br />

the ultimate gift for the gardener who<br />

has everything.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se special plants don’t come<br />

along every day, so treat yourself or<br />

your garden with a piece of botanical<br />

history.<br />

VEGETABLES<br />

Broad beans are cool customers that thrive<br />

in the winter months. It’s a little too late<br />

to sow seed now, but fat seedlings are<br />

in the shops. Plant in a spot away from<br />

strong winds, or if you have large planters<br />

or containers, jam heaps in so you can be<br />

feasting on them for Christmas. Harvest<br />

yams now the frosts have sweetened up<br />

the flavour. Once dug up, wash off any<br />

soil and allow them to dry before storing<br />

somewhere dry and dark. Keep a few of the<br />

fattest ones for planting out in spring for<br />

next year’s crop. <strong>The</strong> same goes for Jerusalem<br />

artichokes. Now the stalks have died down, lift<br />

them and store in the same way as yams.<br />

STRAWBERRIES<br />

Did you know the coldest months of the year<br />

are when strawberry plants are initiating<br />

fruiting buds for the upcoming season? <strong>The</strong><br />

cold temperatures trigger the development<br />

of the fruit buds. This is one of the main<br />

reasons strawberries are planted over winter,<br />

to maximise the fruiting capacity. For existing<br />

strawberry beds, remove any runners and<br />

pluck off all dead-looking leaves, replenish the<br />

soil with strawberry food and tuck new layers<br />

of straw around each plant to keep the soil<br />

weed-free and the fruit clean.<br />

WINTER ROSES<br />

Hellebores are strutting their stuff for<br />

the next few months. <strong>The</strong>se winter<br />

wonders are happy nestled under trees,<br />

in pots and tubs; anywhere really, as<br />

long as they have a little protection from<br />

intense sun in summer. A new one to<br />

look out for is ‘Camelot’, with its large,<br />

pearly white, flat blooms with just a<br />

hint of green. Great for a spot in need<br />

of extra winter interest and summer<br />

foliage. Wintersweet is just bursting<br />

with punchy perfume now, too. Even<br />

the smallest of sprigs picked and put in<br />

a small vase indoors with permeate the<br />

room.<br />

WINTER HANGING<br />

BASKETS<br />

Baskets are not just for summer, they<br />

are great value all year round. Always<br />

freshen up the potting mix before<br />

planting anything new. This time of<br />

the year the small flowering violas<br />

make a brilliant show. Team them<br />

up with fairy primulas or herbs, like<br />

parsley, for something different. And<br />

place the basket somewhere it can be<br />

viewed from both inside and outside.<br />

If you have any bulbs left over,<br />

tuck them up into the roots of the<br />

bedding plants and, in a few months,<br />

they will add the final hurrah of<br />

flowers in spring.<br />

which were judged by agency<br />

director Mel Radford Brown<br />

and the agency’s model booker<br />

Rebecca Dore.<br />

<strong>The</strong> winner of the competition<br />

will be announced next Tuesday<br />

after the agency has met each<br />

Agency director Mel Radford-<br />

“Beauty is very unique and<br />

that is why we want to meet each<br />

girl we want them to have the<br />

confidence as well to go with<br />

their look”.<br />

Mrs Radford-Brown said due<br />

to the standard competition<br />

being so high they may offer a<br />

second and third prize.<br />

“I am looking at about four of<br />

them who will sign. We will be<br />

offering contracts for sure.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> continues with its monthly profile of<br />

Plains FM broadcasters. Today we feature<br />

Garry Thomas<br />

BY DAY Garry Thomas wears<br />

a suit and has a role in human<br />

resources at Ara Institute of<br />

Canterbury.<br />

When his working day is<br />

finished, he indulges in his<br />

love of the arts, entertainment<br />

and music by concocting and<br />

presenting the weekly radio<br />

programme Detox Mans!on<br />

under his nickname – Gaz.<br />

Named after a Warren Zevon<br />

song, Detox Mans!on has a “noformat<br />

format” with a strong<br />

New Zealand flavour. It includes<br />

a local gig guide canvassing the<br />

wider performing arts and entertainment<br />

scene, reviews and<br />

interviews.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Bats are my all time fav<br />

Flying Nun band, but there are<br />

so many others that had a brief<br />

moment of fame that I enjoy.<br />

My ideal Kiwi musicians’ dinner<br />

party would include <strong>The</strong> Bats’<br />

Robert Scott, Marlon Williams,<br />

Nadia Reid, Adam McGrath<br />

from <strong>The</strong> Eastern and Chris<br />

Knox. That would be a cracker<br />

Kiwi night!”<br />

So how has he kept his show<br />

going for nine years?<br />

“Since first going on air back<br />

in June 2007 I’ve continued to refine<br />

the show, and my approach<br />

to it, is to keep it fresh” he says.<br />

“I’m also involved in the local<br />

theatre scene so Detox Mans!on<br />

meets those creative needs.<br />

I try to have fun and I hope<br />

that’s evident in the finished<br />

programme. <strong>The</strong> support provided<br />

by the Plains FM team<br />

is awesome, and really does<br />

make producing this show super<br />

smooth and easy.”<br />

Although a labour of love, the<br />

show has also given this music<br />

fanatic some practical skills and<br />

an opportunity to learn multitrack<br />

digital editing to record<br />

continuity voice breaks. He uses<br />

wry humour and sound effects to<br />

create a raft of interesting audio<br />

elements to introduce special<br />

features and flesh out the overall<br />

sound.<br />

This creative flair led to him<br />

being a finalist in the access<br />

radio category for the NZ Radio<br />

ROCKER: Garry Thomas’ Plains FM show has a strong Kiwi<br />

flavour.<br />

Awards in 2010 and he has no<br />

shortage of material to draw<br />

on.<br />

“I tend to buy one or two CDs<br />

a week, so it’s a pretty extensive<br />

collection. I don’t buy vinyl any<br />

more, but I still have my pre-CD<br />

collection, and still play vinyl at<br />

home.<br />

“I think my first LP was <strong>The</strong><br />

Beatles (White Album) or maybe<br />

Creedence’s Green River. If I had<br />

to pick my top five albums of all<br />

time they would be Astral Weeks<br />

(Van Morrison), Who’s Next<br />

(<strong>The</strong> Who), IV (Led Zeppelin),<br />

Doolittle (Pixies) and Aladdin<br />

Sane (David Bowie).”<br />

So says this highly motivated<br />

and creative music lover who<br />

ends each show with “so keep on<br />

rocking while you still can.”<br />

And he sure does every week<br />

<strong>The</strong>atre/Arts<br />

Singers Las Vegas-bound Pre-teen, ad-lib<br />

show for all ages<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

SHARING A love for creating<br />

songs using only their voices<br />

has led a mother and daughter<br />

to travel to Las Vegas for an<br />

international barbershop quartet<br />

battle.<br />

Hazel Hay and her daughter<br />

Catriona, 21, will travel to the<br />

Sweet Adelines’ international<br />

competition and convention to<br />

compete in October.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will attend the event<br />

with fellow quartet members Sue<br />

Davis and Jane Martin.<br />

<strong>The</strong> group, known as Aftershock,<br />

received a wild-card entry<br />

into the international competition<br />

after coming second at the<br />

regional Sweet Adelines’ New<br />

Zealand concert held in Wellington<br />

earlier this year.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y take the 10 highest<br />

scores throughout the world and<br />

we were the sixth highest,” Mrs<br />

Hay said.<br />

And the barbershop quartet<br />

already has a number of achievements<br />

under their belt.<br />

A survey, completed by online<br />

resource barbershophistory.com<br />

on June 1, ranked Aftershock<br />

as number 37 out of the top 50<br />

Sweet Adelines’ quartets in the<br />

world.<br />

When the quartet competed<br />

for the first time in the Sweet<br />

HARMONY: Quartet group Aftershock (from left), tenor Jane<br />

Martin, bass Hazel Hay, lead singer Catriona Hay and baritone<br />

Sue Davis performing at a regional quartet concert at the<br />

Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington earlier this year. ​<br />

Adelines’ international competition<br />

held in Houston in 2011,<br />

Catriona was only 16 – one of<br />

the youngest leads to compete at<br />

the time.<br />

Mrs Hay said Catriona joined<br />

the Christchurch City Chorus<br />

when she was nine which is very<br />

unusual.<br />

<strong>The</strong> family along with Mrs<br />

Hay’s husband and two other<br />

daughters moved to the city from<br />

Scotland in 2003 along with her<br />

husband and two other daughters<br />

looking to start a new life.<br />

In 2004 Mrs Hay and her<br />

daughters joined the Christchurch<br />

City Chorus.<br />

Following the September<br />

earthquake “Aftershock” was<br />

formed.<br />

Both Mrs Hay and Catriona<br />

said it is very special they will be<br />

competing together overseas.<br />

“It is a bit nerve-racking but<br />

my head is so competitive. I<br />

am so excited about it really,”<br />

Catriona said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Early Early Late Show<br />

Directed by Dan Bain<br />

Reviewed by Georgia<br />

O’Connor-Harding<br />

IF YOU know a quick-witted,<br />

natural-born storyteller about<br />

to delve into their teenage years<br />

then the Court <strong>The</strong>atre’s Early<br />

Early Late Show will be right up<br />

their alley.<br />

Being in my late teens I was<br />

curious to see what it would be<br />

like to go to a show designed to<br />

cater for pre-teens.<br />

I found I had a great appreciation<br />

for how the performers<br />

could transform a simple word<br />

shouted from a merry audience<br />

of young, and not-so-young, into<br />

a full-scale story.<br />

Created by the city’s renowned<br />

Court Jesters, the show is fully<br />

improvised by four astute<br />

actors – Emma Cusdin, Daniel<br />

Pengelly, Tara Swadi and<br />

Brendon Bennetts.<br />

<strong>The</strong> show is based on a mysterious<br />

“Boss” who had left a set<br />

of instructions and a suitcase of<br />

clues which are whipped into<br />

scenes by his employees – <strong>The</strong><br />

Court Jesters.<br />

That’s right, all songs and<br />

scenes in the show are made-up<br />

on the spot and are accompanied<br />

by the pianist Nicky Marshall.<br />

Mr Marshall unintentionally<br />

becomes the star of the<br />

show when he is inflicted with<br />

a coughing fit which the Court<br />

Jesters professionally spin into<br />

one of their stories.<br />

Other highlights included a<br />

rap out of words rhyming with<br />

“cat”, a horror story at McDonald’s<br />

and one performer having<br />

make-up applied by an audience<br />

member acting as his hands.<br />

One cannot forget the catchy<br />

song Never Too Much Make-Up<br />

summarising the entire show<br />

at the end – I still have the tune<br />

stuck in my head.<br />

Any child will get a kick out<br />

of this delightful show but if you<br />

know any child with a flair for<br />

storytelling, bring them along<br />

because they will be left inspired.<br />

Travel<br />

Live like a local in Beverly Hills<br />

• By Mike Yardley<br />

HEADING WEST from the<br />

heart of Hollywood, sample the<br />

salubrious flavours of Beverly<br />

Hills like a local.<br />

I love strolling through the<br />

palm-fringed, gently curved<br />

streets, where the berms are<br />

clipped to precision, and where a<br />

discreet network of service lanes<br />

between the vast ranks of trophy<br />

houses and movie star mansions<br />

eliminates the need to wheel your<br />

rubbish bin out to the kerb.<br />

Yes, best appearances are everything<br />

in Beverly Hills. Take the<br />

opportunity to venture into the<br />

glittery neighbourhood of West<br />

Hollywood, where the playful<br />

street art lends itself to the Instagram<br />

age.<br />

Put yourself in the picture<br />

amongst the parade of snapfriendly<br />

murals draping oh-so<br />

trendy Melrose Ave. But LA’s most<br />

instagrammed spot is the installation<br />

outside the LA County<br />

Museum of Art. Chris Burden’s<br />

Urban Light brings together 202<br />

cast-iron antique street lamps<br />

from across California, which<br />

have been painstakingly restored.<br />

Synonymous with LA trendiness,<br />

Melrose Ave doesn’t just<br />

flourish in the arts, but in fashion<br />

and food. I really like the stretch<br />

east of Fairfax Ave, which serves<br />

up a heady mix of indie boutiques,<br />

vintage stores, tattoo<br />

parlours and lively cafes.<br />

For upscale tastes, head further<br />

west, where you’ll run into signature<br />

boutiques including Rebecca<br />

Minkoff, Vivienne Westwood and<br />

Ron Herman.<br />

But you’ll really need to hang<br />

on to your wallet for the ultimate<br />

hotspot in glamour shopping,<br />

Rodeo Drive and the Golden<br />

Triangle. It’s a shining reminder<br />

why 90210 is still the most prestigious<br />

zip code in the United<br />

States. Burberry, Gucci and Saint<br />

Laurent have all recently unveiled<br />

new or refreshed flagships on<br />

Rodeo Drive.<br />

Across the road on Wilshire<br />

Boulevard, check out the sweep<br />

of luxury retail titans that stand<br />

shoulder to shoulder – Saks Fifth<br />

Avenue, Barneys New York and<br />

Neiman Marcus.<br />

Overlooking Rodeo Drive, a<br />

dream spot to toast your day’s<br />

discoveries is to enjoy a cheeky<br />

cocktail and dinner at <strong>The</strong> Blvd<br />

Restaurant and Lounge, at the<br />

Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Yes, the<br />

hotel made famous by Richard<br />

Gere and Julia Roberts in Pretty<br />

Woman.<br />

<strong>The</strong> legacy lives on with the<br />

signature cocktail list headlined<br />

by <strong>The</strong> Gentleman and Pretty<br />

Woman. Both are vodka-based<br />

with cranberry juice, although<br />

<strong>The</strong> Gentleman includes Captain<br />

Morgan passionfruit and jalapeno<br />

infused Ultimat vodka. Splendid<br />

mixology!<br />

Chic and sophisticated,<br />

the restaurant’s lofty crystal<br />

chandeliered ceiling and large<br />

windows complete the sense of<br />

grandeur.<br />

<strong>The</strong> following night, I headed to<br />

<strong>The</strong> Peninsula Beverly Hills. Old<br />

World Hollywood charm meets<br />

sophisticated contemporary<br />

cuisine at the recently refreshed<br />

restaurant, <strong>The</strong> Belvedere.<br />

It’s a power lunch favourite, but<br />

I plumped for dinner which is a<br />

graceful, low-key affair. Monkfish<br />

Osso Bucco was my entrée, served<br />

with charred spanish octupus,<br />

confit potato and tanaka.<br />

I couldn’t resist the chance to<br />

devour a plate of freshly shucked<br />

pacific and atlantic oysters. (<strong>The</strong><br />

Atlantic boys are definitely bigger.)<br />

For my main, I plumped for the<br />

28-day dry aged bone-in-rib with<br />

cippolini onions. It was simply<br />

divine. Beautifully presented fresh<br />

and flavourful cuisine, and you’ll<br />

be royally treated by the charismatic,<br />

chatty restaurant staff.<br />

Hip, high-end and in a primo<br />

location, AKA Beverly Hills delivers<br />

an extraordinary residentialliving<br />

experience.<br />

Blending contemporary style<br />

with impeccable hospitality,<br />

you’ll relish the supreme sense of<br />

comfort and spaciousness in your<br />

fully appointed luxury suite.<br />

No boxy, cramped hotel rooms<br />

here – it’s the ultimate home away<br />

from home.<br />

A fabulous touch is the inhouse<br />

20-seat cinema, fitted out<br />

with oversized leather reclining<br />

seats, where you can watch a film<br />

of your choice. My favourite<br />

space is definitely the terrace<br />

lounge, an al fresco elevated affair,<br />

clad in palm trees and cozy<br />

outdoor fire pits.<br />

It’s the perfect spot for a cheeky<br />

sundowner, as the twinkling<br />

lights of Hollywood Hills and<br />

the famous Hollywood sign<br />

illuminate the night. Beverly Hills’<br />

legendary Spago, from master<br />

chef Wolfgang Puck, is right next<br />

door.<br />

Spago’s recently recreated menu<br />

is winning plenty of accolades.<br />

Whether you wish to dine in the<br />

restaurant or in-suite, Spago’s<br />

culinary experience is a must.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y’ve recently introduced a<br />

small plates menu adding to the<br />

high-end conviviality. For fussfree<br />

fare, their pizzas and pastas<br />

are a massive hit.<br />

Savouring cuisine from Spago<br />

while staying at AKA?<br />

Now that’s really living like a<br />

local. www.stayaka.com<br />

line has to contain<br />

the numbers 1-6, and<br />

the numbers can’t be<br />

repeated in any row or<br />

column.<br />

But it’s sudoku with a<br />

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

each heavily outlined<br />

set of squares, called<br />

cages, must produce the<br />

number in the top corner.<br />

For example, 5+ means<br />

the numbers add up to 5,<br />

9x means the numbers<br />

multiply to equal 9.<br />

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

same line or row.<br />

Vatuvei to return for Warriors against Manly<br />

MANU VATUVEI will return<br />

to the Warriors side for this<br />

Saturday’s match against Manly,<br />

after more than a month out of<br />

action.<br />

Vatuvei, who is one touchdown<br />

away from reaching 150 NRL<br />

tries, comes back into the team<br />

at the expense of Tui Lolohea<br />

who drops back to the interchange<br />

bench.<br />

It means that Vatuvei and Ken<br />

Maumalo will be teamed up on<br />

the wings for the first time since<br />

last August for the match in<br />

Perth.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 30-year-old Vatuvei has<br />

been sidelined since a hamstring<br />

injury forced him off the field<br />

early in the second half of the<br />

50-<strong>14</strong> win over Newcastle on<br />

June 11.<br />

Maumalo has filled Vatuvei’s<br />

regular spot on the left wing in<br />

the Warriors’ last three matches,<br />

against the Sydney Roosters,<br />

Cronulla and Gold Coast.<br />

<strong>The</strong> reunion of the two giant<br />

wings comes more than<br />

13 months after they were first<br />

used together, ironically when<br />

the Warriors were last in Perth<br />

facing the Rabbitohs in June last<br />

year.<br />

Aside from Lolohea’s shift,<br />

there are two changes to the<br />

starting pack used in the 27-18<br />

win over Gold Coast.<br />

Captain Ryan Hoffman is<br />

back after a virus prevented him<br />

playing in Simon Mannering’s<br />

250th NRL game, while Albert<br />

Vete (hamstring injury) has been<br />

ruled out.<br />

His absence sees Ben Matulino<br />

and Jacob Lillyman named as the<br />

starting props.<br />

Charlie Gubb, who started at<br />

loose forward against the Titans,<br />

switches back to a five-man<br />

bench alongside Lolohea, Sam<br />

Lisone, Bunty Afoa and James<br />

Gavet.<br />

Gavet, in line for his seventh<br />

NRL outing of the year, has been<br />

impressive for the reserve grade<br />

side over the past month.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Warriors take an 8-8<br />

win-loss record into Saturday’s<br />

contest. With eight rounds to<br />

go in the regular season they’re<br />

seventh on the table on 20 points<br />

while the Sea Eagles are 13th on<br />

<strong>14</strong> points.<br />

Sport<br />

Tech look to reclaim title<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

ONE CHRISTCHURCH club<br />

will remain in the Chatham Cup<br />

after this weekend’s round of 16.<br />

Universities will host Christchurch’s<br />

top club Cashmere<br />

Technical on Saturday in a David<br />

v Goliath-like match. Cashmere<br />

occupy top spot in the Mainland<br />

Premier League, while Universities<br />

are 27 points behind and<br />

currently sit second-to-last in the<br />

league.<br />

Cashmere coach John Brown<br />

knows Universities can’t be<br />

taken lightly, after handing Tech<br />

a 2-4 defeat in May.<br />

“Robbie [Barraclough], their<br />

coach, has them set up well, especially<br />

against us. We defeated<br />

them at the weekend, but they<br />

had three or four key guys out<br />

with injury,” said Brown.<br />

Universities has done well to<br />

get to this stage of New Zealand’s<br />

most illustrious knockout<br />

football competition, accounting<br />

for Nomads United 3-2, Halswell<br />

United 1-0 and Richmond Athletic<br />

3-0.<br />

“It’s a position the club’s never<br />

been in before, so that’s pleasing.<br />

I guess to some degree we’ve had<br />

an easy draw. In recent seasons,<br />

EYE ON THE PRIZE: Cashmere Technical are looking to<br />

reclaim the Chatham Cup, which they last won in 20<strong>14</strong>.<br />

we’ve always seemed to get Tech<br />

first up, but the guys have done<br />

a great job to get to where we<br />

have,” said Universities coach<br />

Robbie Barraclough.<br />

Universities went down to<br />

Tech 8-1 on Saturday. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

haven’t won a game in the league<br />

since May 7 when they defeated<br />

Tech, but remain optimistic.<br />

“We seem to play our best<br />

football when there’s no pressure<br />

on us. It’s a David versus Goliath<br />

battle. We’re not expected to<br />

win, but as we’ve previously<br />

shown, we do like that underdog<br />

status and we’ll be trying to<br />

use that to the best of our ability,”<br />

said Barraclough.<br />

Tech will look to make their<br />

fourth straight Chatham Cup<br />

quarter-final in a row. Tech won<br />

the competition in 2013 and<br />

20<strong>14</strong>. <strong>The</strong>y also made it to the<br />

last eight in 2015 before being<br />

eliminated by Eastern Suburbs.<br />

Former All White and Wellington<br />

Phoenix player Ben<br />

Sigmund has joined up with his<br />

boyhood coach John Brown and<br />

has made an immediate impact<br />

since joining the club mid-way<br />

through the season.<br />

“We’ve been playing him as an<br />

attacking mid-fielder. He’s got<br />

the skill to play anywhere. He’s<br />

the sort of guy that galvanises a<br />

team, him and Aaron Clapham<br />

have great chemistry in midfield,”<br />

said Brown.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s a strong chance that<br />

Tech could make a run at both<br />

the men and women’s elite<br />

knock-out competitions.<br />

Tech’s women’s team will play<br />

Dunedin club Rosyln Wakari<br />

AFC in the quarter-finals of<br />

the New Zealand Women’s<br />

Knockout Cup – the women’s<br />

equivalent of the Chatham Cup.<br />

After making it this far, Tech<br />

coach Megan Shea is hopeful the<br />

team can continue its run.<br />

“Over the last five years that<br />

I’ve been involved, we’ve never<br />

made it past the Christchurch<br />

region. We usually get knocked<br />

out by Coastal Spirit, so it’s nice<br />

to make it this far,” said Shea.<br />

Tech has put together a strong<br />

side this season with the likes of<br />

Football Ferns Annalie Longo<br />

and Meikayla Moore in their<br />

ranks. Saturday’s game against<br />

Rosyln Wakari AFC kicks off at<br />

Garrick Park at 12.30pm. <strong>The</strong><br />

Chatham Cup match between<br />

Universities and Tech kicks off at<br />

Ilam Fields at 2pm on Saturday.<br />

In Brief<br />

UNDER-17 NETBALL<br />

Christchurch will field two<br />

teams in next week’s under-17<br />

New Zealand Netball Nationals<br />

at the North Canterbury<br />

Netball Centre in Rangiora<br />

from <strong>July</strong> 18 to 21. Christchurch<br />

A will meet North Harbour<br />

2, Nelson, Horowhenua and<br />

Eastern Waikato in the pool<br />

round, while Christchurch B<br />

will meet Dunedin, Auckland<br />

2, Waitakere 2 and Kapiti.<br />

CRUSADERS YOUTH<br />

<strong>The</strong> under-18 Crusaders will<br />

play the under-18 Hurricanes at<br />

AMI Stadium on Saturday. <strong>The</strong><br />

match will serve as a curtainraiser<br />

to the Super Rugby<br />

game between the Crusaders<br />

and Hurricanes. <strong>The</strong> curtainraiser<br />

kicks off at 2.30pm. <strong>The</strong><br />

under-18 Crusaders squad<br />

was selected at the Crusaders<br />

Knights Academy camp held<br />

this week at St Andrew’s<br />

College. Around 60 players<br />

attended the camp. <strong>The</strong> camp<br />

was run by Canterbury NPC<br />

coaches Scott Robertson and<br />

Joe Maddock. <strong>The</strong> New Zealand<br />

Secondary Schools squad<br />

selectors also attended and will<br />

have an eye on this weekend’s<br />

game, as they pick a team to<br />

play Australia later in the year.<br />

Crusaders to target Hurricanes scrum<br />

THE CRUSADERS will<br />

target the Hurricanes scrum<br />

and an untried new midfield<br />

combination in Saturday’s high<br />

stakes contest in Christchurch.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Hurricanes lineout was<br />

able to successfully disrupt the<br />

Waratahs last weekend, but in<br />

turn the home side put heat on<br />

the visitors’ scrum, and now<br />

tight-head prop Chris Eves has a<br />

cut ear and possible concussion,<br />

which could rule him out of the<br />

final round match-up.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Crusaders are lying in<br />

wait with a clutch of All Black<br />

front-rowers.<br />

Willis Halaholo was solid at<br />

second-five, aside from his high<br />

shot on Bernard Foley, which<br />

earned a trip to the sin-bin. His<br />

midfield partner Matt Proctor<br />

limped off after 25 minutes with<br />

a hamstring injury, so his place<br />

will likely go to Ngani Laumape.<br />

Crusaders centre Ryan Crotty<br />

will make them earn their keep.<br />

<strong>The</strong> All Black has a low mistake<br />

rate and runs good attacking angles,<br />

as he showed with two tries<br />

in the Crusaders’ 85-24 shellacking<br />

of the tackle-shy Melbourne<br />

Rebels last weekend.<br />

Adding to the Hurricanes<br />

concerns will be the return of<br />

talismanic captain Kieran Read.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Hurricanes showed their<br />

ample defensive qualities against<br />

the Waratahs.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Waratahs tried to beat us<br />

up and dominate us physically.<br />

After half-time, they went into<br />

that direct combat mode and we<br />

stood up to that. Our plan was to<br />

absorb that pressure, then move<br />

it around, and that was successful,”<br />

said Hurricanes coach Chris<br />

Boyd.<br />

“When a team comes to bully<br />

you physically, you can stand<br />

up or wilt. We made a collective<br />

decision not to wilt. It was one of<br />

our two or three best efforts this<br />

year.”<br />

Boyd will be hoping to say<br />

something similar to media<br />

at about 7.15pm this Saturday<br />

night in what is shaping as yet<br />

another rugged New Zealand<br />

derby.<br />

Ford Focus ST a<br />

worthy compromise<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

I’VE LONG desired a 70s<br />

two-door Ford Escort, it’s<br />

a car I thought would be a<br />

good retirement project,<br />

but I’m a victim of<br />

skyrocketing classic car<br />

prices and decreased<br />

availability.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latter could be true<br />

of other fast Ford fans,<br />

New Zealand’s quota of the<br />

recently-released Focus RS<br />

has been exhausted, the<br />

257kW, four-wheel-drive<br />

model is hot property and,<br />

by all accounts, deservedly<br />

so, as it is a true performance<br />

machine.<br />

However, Ford has<br />

another hot Focus, it is the<br />

ST and would suffice for<br />

those who want good performance<br />

at a price that is<br />

considerably more favourable<br />

than that of the RS.<br />

At $52,840 the Focus ST<br />

is affordable, and although<br />

its performance isn’t as<br />

great as the RS, it equips<br />

itself well with 184kW, and<br />

360Nm providing the power<br />

for a 6.6sec standstill to<br />

100km/h time.<br />

Power is directed through<br />

a six-speed manual transmission<br />

and is a frontwheel-drive<br />

model only, and<br />

while it certainly fits into<br />

the hot hatchback category,<br />

it has four-doors offering<br />

the practicality the Focus<br />

has as a series.<br />

<strong>The</strong> ST gets a turbocharged,<br />

twin-camshaft<br />

engine which gets about<br />

its job with strong engine<br />

sound and character. I’m<br />

not saying it is noisy, it’s<br />

not, the sound is well isolated<br />

but it is there to be<br />

heard, the engine is angry<br />

under load and it is a sound<br />

that encourages throttle use,<br />

it is pleasant to listen to.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Focus ST is quick<br />

through a corner, grippy<br />

tyres (Good Year Eagle<br />

F1, 225/40 x 18in) turn in<br />

precisely with little steering<br />

effort. If more lock is<br />

required you can rely on the<br />

tyres to bite and maintain<br />

direction.<br />

Sitting low, the Focus<br />

doesn’t move around on<br />

the suspension, therefore<br />

gravitational changes don’t<br />

load the tyres, nor does it<br />

affect the way the suspension<br />

operates in a corner; if<br />

FORD FOCUS ST: High power engine.<br />

uneven surfaces are encountered<br />

there is composure<br />

and certainty within the<br />

steering process.<br />

I took the test car on<br />

a Summit Rd loop, they<br />

are perfect roads for a<br />

performance car. English<br />

Fords have generally been<br />

regarded as having supple<br />

chassis balance and the ST<br />

doesn’t disappoint. It also<br />

rockets between corners<br />

with a powerful surge and<br />

swift retardation thanks to a<br />

performance brake package,<br />

through the corners it has<br />

balance and accuracy akin<br />

to a true sports hatchback.<br />

• Price – Ford Focus<br />

ST, $52,840<br />

• Dimensions –<br />

Length, 4362mm;<br />

width, 1823mm;<br />

height, <strong>14</strong>71mm<br />

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

2000cc, 184kW,<br />

360Nm, six-speed<br />

manual.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 6.2sec<br />

• Fuel usage–<br />

6.7l/100km<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is a bit of torque<br />

steer under load, it’s not<br />

dramatic but it is there to<br />

remind there is a lot of<br />

power heading out the front<br />

end. It doesn’t bother me, I<br />

like to be reminded there is<br />

something special under the<br />

bonnet and the high power<br />

flows are there to entice the<br />

driver, everything about the<br />

Focus ST is structured for<br />

performance.<br />

<strong>The</strong> hatchback also<br />

embodies the spirit of Ford’s<br />

Focus, the ST is still the<br />

handy five-seater which<br />

pleases in the everyday role<br />

as well, but any prospective<br />

DYNAMIC:<br />

Big wheels<br />

provide an<br />

aggressive<br />

stance.<br />

buyer should be prepared to<br />

be noticed.<br />

<strong>The</strong> ST stands out with its<br />

bold wheels, body kit and<br />

spoiler, while on the inside<br />

Recaro seats not only support<br />

the driver around the<br />

mid-riff, but they are visual.<br />

<strong>The</strong> test car was painted<br />

bright yellow, well, Ford<br />

call it tangerine, and the<br />

inside detailing incorporated<br />

splashes of yellow as<br />

well.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Focus ST is a fun<br />

package and it comes extensively<br />

equipped with all of<br />

the items you’d expect today<br />

for comfort and convenience,<br />

and safety.<br />

Ford claim a 6.7l/100km<br />

(42mpg) combined cycle<br />

fuel usage average for the<br />

ST. Obviously, I didn’t push<br />

as hard as I could have<br />

done because the trip computer<br />

was showing around<br />

8l/100km (35mpg), when<br />

I took the car back to the<br />

dealership.<br />

It will also return a<br />

5.6l/100kmn (50mpg)<br />

instantaneous reading at<br />

100km/h (engine speed<br />

2200rpm), which means<br />

you can have some fun<br />

without scoffing vast<br />

amounts of fuel.<br />

I’ve long appreciated<br />

Ford’s sporty cars which<br />

aren’t out of reach for<br />

buyers who want a little<br />

bit of performance with<br />

their purchase. I also relate<br />

well to the Volvo-powered<br />

five-cylinder Focus Turbo<br />

which, for a long period,<br />

was one of my favourite fast<br />

Fords.<br />

Sadly, Ford don’t use that<br />

engine any more, however,<br />

that aside, the Ecoboost<br />

series that makes up a large<br />

part of the Ford power<br />

plants today is widely recognised<br />

for its efficiency and<br />

performance.<br />

I guess I’ll always mourn<br />

parting with my old Escort<br />

Sport and envy those who<br />

I know have one parked<br />

in their garage today. My<br />

retirement projects will<br />

probably lend themselves to<br />

something far more mundane<br />

– like painting the<br />

house, for instance.<br />

FINDING THE BEST<br />

HOUSE DESIGN<br />

FINDING THE BEST HOUSE DESIGN<br />

<strong>The</strong> standard family home has<br />

increased in size. Where once the<br />

norm was three bedrooms, one<br />

bathroom and a detached garage,<br />

now many homes have more features yet what<br />

do you really need?<br />

Viewing show homes are a great way to get<br />

ideas though it can be easy to get carried away<br />

with the imaginative features now available in<br />

the myriad of house designs out there and<br />

choices will need to be made.<br />

Before selecting a house plan, determine<br />

your actual budget and draw up a list of needs<br />

and wants for your new home ranking the<br />

wants in order of preference.<br />

Next, research building company websites<br />

and visit their show homes or offices to see<br />

the work they do and their house designs.<br />

Talk to the building company representatives<br />

to get an idea of costs for each of the plans<br />

that interests you, remembering the figures<br />

they suggest will be based on standard fittings<br />

for each house plan so changes may impact<br />

on the price.<br />

Gather together the various designs that<br />

you like and fit within your budget. Compare<br />

these against your checklist, discarding any<br />

that do not match the budget or needs then<br />

consider how each of the remaining designs<br />

provides for your wants. Make a short-list of<br />

suitable designs for further scrutiny.<br />

Housing company representatives can<br />

help you work through this process and may<br />

suggest ways your needs, wants and budget<br />

can be met in one of their standard house<br />

plans which may be adapted, or through the<br />

creation of a new design. Your checklist will<br />

also assist the designer when working on a<br />

plan for you.<br />

In your checklist, state your needs and<br />

wants separately including a column for<br />

suitable room sizes. Cover:<br />

• House size desired: <strong>The</strong> more square<br />

metre area of the home the higher the price.<br />

What size will work best for you?<br />

• Bedrooms: Consider the number of<br />

people who will live or stay in the house and<br />

other needs such as a large office space.<br />

• Living areas: Do you want open plan and/<br />

or a separate lounge? Would two living spaces<br />

be used?<br />

• Kitchen: Do you love to cook or is the<br />

kitchen a place to prepare a quick meal? This<br />

will influence the amount of cupboards and/<br />

or pantry needed.<br />

• Bathrooms: More bathrooms and wash<br />

basins translate to more cleaning however an<br />

extra bathroom may be justified if it avoids<br />

morning queues.<br />

• Garage: How many cars will be parked<br />

on site and what garage storage needs do you<br />

have?<br />

• Storage: Do you need space for toys,<br />

clothes, and other possessions and how<br />

much?<br />

• Laundry: Savings can be made by putting<br />

this in the garage but will that be convenient<br />

or would a larger laundry make life easier<br />

especially with a large family?<br />

With research, thought and planning you<br />

will end up with a home that is practical and<br />

that you love and enjoy.<br />

difference and showcase an individual style<br />

with the right decorating theme, and we like<br />

to push the boundaries a little by adding<br />

interesting pieces and features which drive a<br />

lot of discussion and opinion.”<br />

Horncastle Homes’ Faringdon show home<br />

will appeal to all ages, especially families, and<br />

those who like to entertain.<br />

Its floor area of 201 square metres makes it<br />

an ideal three-bedroom family home. <strong>The</strong>re<br />

is an en suite and walk-in robe recess in the<br />

main bedroom which is a little separated<br />

from the other two bedrooms, so ideal for a<br />

family with older children or teenagers.<br />

Both bathrooms have fully tiled showers<br />

and the main bathroom is tiled to the ceiling<br />

throughout, with the open plan kitchen living<br />

space also tiled. <strong>The</strong> walk-through designer<br />

kitchen has 900mm wide Bosch appliances<br />

and generous cupboard space, while sliders<br />

open on two sides of the living area to a large<br />

timber deck with partial roof overhang.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is a large separate laundry that has<br />

good storage and bench space, a double<br />

garage with attic stairs to a loft storage area,<br />

gas hot water and in-slab heating, customised<br />

joinery, an alarm system and efficient<br />

utilisation of space throughout.<br />

If you are in the market to build right now<br />

or considering redecorating, then take a<br />

walk-through of the Horncastle show home<br />

at Faringdon, open Wednesday to Sunday,<br />

12pm to 4pm.<br />
