Criminals

target

guns

for big

money

• By Andrew King

STOLEN HANDGUNS

are selling for more than

$1000 on the black market in

Christchurch and shotguns and

rifles for hundreds of dollars.

They have become a an item

of choice for burglars who are

targeting homes where they

know there are firearms.

Police say the illicit trade

drug is fuelling the need for

criminals to arm themselves

and gangs are key players.

Police have set up a task force

of 35 officers to combat the

problem.

Police revealed yesterday,

since March they have executed

175 search warrants in Canterbury,

recovered 87 firearms, and

seized more than $5m of assets

related to criminal offending.

Two more properties were

raided in Bromley and Halswell

yesterday, where firearms and

drugs were found. Two men

were arrested.

Police didn’t have figures

late yesterday as to how many

firearms have been stolen in

Canterbury in recent months.

The Star can reveal that

in June alone more than 30

firearms were stolen from properties

in Greenpark, Leeston,

Lower Styx and Avonside. They

included high-powered rifles,

shotguns and . 22 calibre rifles.

Canterbury University criminologist

Professor Greg Newbold

said handguns were going

for more than $1000 on the

black market because they were

relatively difficult to obtain.

“Shotguns and .22 rifles are

the most commonly used in

crimes and can be brought for

a couple of hundred dollars.

Pistols can be over $1000,” Prof

Newbold said.

Gun owners needed to store

firearms securely, he said.

“Guns are pretty hard to steal

when they are stored properly

. . . if they are being stolen from

rural properties I would suggest

they are not being stored

correctly,” he said.

REPORTER Andrew King

reveals today the extent of the

gun problem in the city – stolen

guns that is.

Criminals are targeting homes

they know contain firearms – 18

went in a recent burglary just

outside of the city.

Firearms are hot property in

the criminal underworld, with

handguns selling for more than

$1000 on the black market.

The gangs appear to be a big

factor in the trade, which goes

hand-in-hand with the illicit

drug market. Police have a task

on the upsurge in gun thefts and

raided two properties in Bromley

At a Glance

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the opening of Lincoln College

on July 19, 1880. It was the first agricultural college in the

Southern Hemisphere. On July 19, 1988, Jock Orr, nicknamed

The Birdman’ after befriending birds in Cathedral Square,

died. On July 20, 1851, the first church in Christchurch

opened – later dedicated as St Michael and All Angels in

1859. On July 20, 1983, Canterbury defeated North Otago

88-0 in a record Ranfurly Shield score at Lancaster Park.

After heavy snow (175mm) on July 22, 1918, Christchurch

experienced its coldest day on record. The temperature didn’t

rise above 1 deg C. On July 23, 1851, pioneer William Deans

was among 28 lost in the wreck of the Maria in Cook Strait.

Contractors restoring the historic Sign

of the Kiwi building have come across

an unexpected find. The contractors

were working on the roof when they

uncovered a message on its lining

which read: ‘If we had of known you

were coming we’d of baked a cake.’

The lyrics come from a 1950s Eileen

Barton song. The city council says

it is likely the message was written

by tradies when they worked on the

building in the 1950s.

Council manager accused of shoplifting

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A CITY COUNCIL project

manager has been arrested for

shoplifting.

The man, in his 40s, will

appear in the district court on

August 2 facing five charges

of shoplifting and obtaining

through deception.

He was wearing city council

EVEN AFTER hanging up his

boots All Blacks legend Richie

McCaw is finding ways to prove

his greatness.

The former All Blacks skipper,

who led the side to two Rugby

World Cup titles, has revealed in

an interview with the Daily Mail

that he aced the flying exams for

his helicopter licence.

During a tour above Christchurch,

McCaw played down the

fact that he scored 94 per cent in

his six flying exams, 24 per cent

above the average pass rate.

McCaw took Daily Mail

journalist Nik Simon around his

home city, showing the reporter

the empty shell of Lancaster

Park.

There she is, just sitting

there,” McCaw said above the

Crusaders’ former home ground

which has been dormant following

the 2011 earthquake.

“We’ll end up spewing if we

go any further and someone will

have to clean it up – not my idea

of fun,” McCaw said.

The 35-year-old opened up

about his retirement from the

game following last year’s Rugby

World Cup final win over Australia.

“It’s a scary thing when you

get to the end of 15 years playing

and suddenly think, ‘Now

what’?” McCaw said.

“To be honest, for 12 of those

years I had no idea what I’d do

and just hoped that something

would come along. This has

identification and was driving

a city council vehicle during at

least one of the five shoplifting

incidents, which took place during

work hours.

He is accused of deceiving

“Sunday mornings are a lot

better now. The Super Rugby

season is a tough grind and I

certainly haven’t missed that. I

don’t miss being on the physio

table and I thought it would be a

lot stranger watching the ABs.

There was a little bit of an

‘Ooff’, watching them run out

into all sorts of problems if you

sit there looking back.”

where it is alleged he asked for

and managed to get a refund.

He claimed he had earlier purchased

the tools.

The store’s general manager

Tony Franc said the man’s activities

were monitored when it

was suspected he was fraudulently

asking for a refund.

Mr Franc said he confronted

the man and called the police.

However, police were

unavailable to get to the store,

and the man was allowed to

leave.

The following day, he turned

himself into the police and was

charged.

The city council said it could

privacy reasons.

BUS CARD ENCOURAGED

Environment Canterbury is

looking at ways to increase the

percentage of bus trips paid

for by Metrocard. In May, 72.3

per cent of all bus trips were

paid for on the card. ECan

commissioner David Bedford

has requested that staff put hard

targets in place for increasing

the usage. Using the card speeds

up the boarding process making

it easier for buses to meet their

timetables, as well as providing

cost savings for passengers.

NAKED AT NIGHT

Police responded to a call about

a naked man walking through

his neighbour’s St Albans’ section

at about 11pm on Monday.

The neighbour said the man was

known to have mental health

issues and was harmless, but

wanted him to put some clothes

on and get off his property. Police

confirmed there was no risk

to the public.

POLICE ON THE MOVE

The Riccarton Neighbourhood

Policing Team will move to

Aranui from October 1. The

team was established in 2011

and since then burglaries in Riccarton

hit a 10-year low. Police

say the number of burglaries

has halved since the team was

established. The team’s patch

included about 900 properties

in the area. The new team in

Aranui will be headed up by

Sergeant Chris Barker.

RESIDENTS PARKING

First he fought for contractors to

have parking permits, now a city

councillor wants to extend that

to residents, too. Parking issues

are forcing the city council

to add restrictions on many

suburban streets. Cr Jamie

Gough wants the city council

to allow residents to apply for a

permit, which would overrule

any parking restrictions on the

street they live on. Cr Gough

and fellow councillor Raf Manji

have asked city council staff to

brief them on how the scheme

could work.

Policewoman’s trailblazing days relived

• By Tom Doudney

WHEN ROSALIE Sterritt QSM

joined the police in 1948, woman

officers wore plain clothes, were

expected to deal only with female

offenders and battled for respect

from their male colleagues.

Canterbury police celebrated

75 years of women in emergency

services at a Hagley Park event

yesterday.

Although she didn’t feel like

a trailblazer at the time, Miss

Sterritt, 91, looks back at those

early years as a long slow fight for

acceptance.

A national torch relay arrived

in Christchurch yesterday and a

‘blue light barbecue’ was held in

Hagley Park.

By the time Miss Sterritt

retired in 1985, as a senior constable,

she was New Zealand’s

longest serving police officer – a

record she still holds.

She was pleased to see that

women today were treated as

equals and believed it was a

matter of time until a woman

became commissioner.

Her father, Constable David

Sterritt, had been a mounted policeman

and she decided to join

the fourth intake of policewomen

while working at the Kaikoura

Hospital office.

MEMORIES: Rosalie

Sterritt keeps a

scrapbook full of

articles relating to

herself and women

police officers which

she has collated over

the years. ​

“I don’t think my parents were

very happy with the idea,” she

said.

They thought it might be too

much rough and tumble, probably.”

The women were given limited

duties in those days.

They wanted to just shove

us in offices on phone duty and

district office records,” she said.

“If we went out on a job with a

man, even though I might have

been senior in service, because he

was a man he was considered to

be my senior. It was stupid.”

Miss Sterritt remembered woman

officers being issued handbags

and being required to leave the

force if they got married.

SPECIAL OCCASION: An event to mark 75 years of women in

emergency services was held in Hagley Park yesterday.

Trustee role

for Sutton

• By Gabrielle Stuart

FORMER Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery chief

executive Roger Sutton has a

new role as an Anglican church

trustee.

He has been appointed one of

eight trustees on the Anglican

Diocese of

Christchurch

Church Property

Trust.

Mr Sutton

(right) resigned

from his role

at CERA in

November, 2014,

after a senior

staff member laid a sexual harassment

complaint against him.

A State Services Commission

inquiry found Mr Sutton’s conduct

was sexual harassment, but

that he did not intend to cause

offence. It recommended that he

was given a final warning, but he

resigned soon afterward.

Bishop Victoria Matthews,

who is chair of the trust, said Mr

Sutton was interviewed for the

position and appointed after a

unanimous vote.

“We are thrilled by what he is

offering CPT in terms of talent

and skill,” she said.

Church slammed

Developer

asks why

the secrecy

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE ANGLICAN church has

been slammed for refusing to

answer any questions about

the Christ Church Cathedral

until December.

On Monday, The Star asked

for details of the proposals put

to the diocese for protecting

the Cathedral until a decision

is made about it’s future.

But diocese spokesman Jayson

Rhodes refused to answer

the questions.

He said he would not be

commenting on anything

about the Cathedral until

after December 7, when the

working party is due to come

back with its recommendations.

The working group is the

focus now and we see no need

to have to comment on anything

else until that time.”

He told The Press the same

thing.

Central city developer Ernest

Duval said although the

church as a private entity had

the right to keep quiet, it was

hurting the community.

He said there should be

nothing to hide, so no need to

block the public out.

“It’s not plans for a nuclear

bomb or an invasion of Australia,

it’s not a big secret, it’s

just a church. It shouldn’t be

this difficult.”

He said more information

even just about the process

would help central city business

owners and developers

trying to make their own

plans.

“Neither the Crown or

the church is prepared to be

forthcoming, so the community

of Christchurch and

particularly the stakeholders

around the square are left

with nothing.”

Former mayor Bob Parker,

who was involved in early

negotiations with the church,

said he believed the church

should be more open with the

public.

But he believed it was

frustration with the “whole

saga” that had led them to

clam up.

“I feel for the church. They

must feel they have been

bullied by one section of the

community telling them what

to do, so I have some sympathy

with that,” he said.

$800 a day for

working party

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MEMBERS OF the working party tasked

with looking into different options for

the Cathedral are being paid $800 a day.

The chairman of the working party,

former NZ Transport Agency chief executive

Geoff Dangerfield

(right), is paid $1000 a

day.

They are expected to

meet about two days a

month.

Other members of the

working party are The Tannery developer

Alasdair Cassels, business consultant

Sue McKenzie and Anglican Church

Property Trust board members Steve

Wakefield and Roger Bridge.

They have been appointed to look thoroughly

into “reinstatement options” for

the Cathedral, and what different options

will cost.

They will then put it together in a report

to the Government and church, due

by December 7 this year.

A Department of the Prime Minister

and Cabinet spokesman said the fees

were set with the Cabinet fees framework.

“[They] are set at an appropriate level

to ensure the group has suitable expertise

and experience, and to recognise the

complexity of the task and strong public

interest in the group’s work.”

The category 1 heritage church

The repairs would cost about

Tuesday the fundraising would

begin in the next month.

As part of the fundraising,

people could pay $500-$1000

for a stone used in the church’s

The church would also apply

for grants, and planned on

writing to all the St Peter’s

churches in the world to see if

they would like to contribute.

That included St Peter’s

Basilica in Vatican City.

The original wooden church

Flooding in Canty could be costly

• By Shelley Robinson

GRIM PROJECTIONS show

the large cost of an extreme

flood event and future sea level

increases on buildings and

homes.

In the worst case scenario,

a 1m sea-level rise leaves the

city with $380 million worth

of “reinstatement” damage –

buildings repairs, vehicles and

clean-up costs.

The worst hit suburbs will be

South Brighton, New Brighton,

Avondale, Moncks Bay and

Aranui. In lower sea level rise

scenarios, river flooding will

become a problem in Beckenham

and St Martins.

It comes at a time when

insurers may not provide cover

in extreme cases if risk has not

been not mitigated, because the

frequency of flooding may deem

it a “foreseeable” risk,

Environment Dr Jan Wright.

With a 1m sea level rise, $380

million in reinstatement costs

would be required and people

would be displaced from 2337

buildings across the city. At

500mm, reinstatement costs

would be $105.2 million with 507

buildings affected, and with no

sea level rise, $98 million with

456 buildings affected.

The data was prepared

for the city council by the

National Institute of Water and

Atmospheric Research. The

report combined sea level rise

with extreme flooding, known as

a one in 500-year event.

But the real cost could be

double if business interruption

and infrastructure damage are

included.

“A crude rule of thumb is that

overall losses are often double

the reinstatement costs,” said the

report.

If the residential red zone

was rebuilt, losses would be

between three and 10 times

greater.

NIWA used hazard impact

and loss modelling software

called RiskScape. It overlaid last

year’s property and building data

coupled with draft city council

level rise, NIWA

modelling has

shown.

maps, adding in sea level rise

scenarios. Stop banks are

expected to have failed and the

flooding occurs at night with no

warning or a short lead in time.

Dr Wright said the sea level is

projected to increase by about

300mm by 2065.

This means “100-year events”,

like the flooding that struck the

city in March 2014, will occur

more often. In Christchurch, this

means once a year by 2065, and

with “every tide” when the sea

rises 1m, she said.

The insurance industry

was therefore considering

whether the effects of sea level

rise, erosion and flooding are

becoming such a “foreseeable

risk” that cover could be

affected, said Dr Wright.

“[Insurance companies] insure

against risk that is unforeseen,

but this [flooding and sea level

rise] is becoming a foreseen risk.

Over time, insurers will go, well,

this is getting pretty predictable

and we are not going to cover it,”

she said.

Insurance Council of New

Zealand chief executive Tim

Grafton said if floods were

“frequent”, like in Flockton

Basin, insurers could raise the

excess and premiums or not

provide cover in “extreme cases”.

“[Insurers] are in the business

of cover for the sudden

unexpected occurrences. That’s

where you might see companies

as a last resort not providing

cover,” he said.

But if mitigation measures are

undertaken – similar to that in

the Flockton Basin – to lessen

the risk of flooding, insurers

would respond accordingly

because the risk is less, he said.

Councillors warned not to

repeat ‘mistakes of the past’

THERE

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE CITY council is defending

it’s decision to renegotiate how

much it spends on anchor

projects, in spite of being warned

it is “repeating the mistakes of the

past”.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and the

current city councillors have

often complained their hands

are tied over the city council’s

finances.

This occurred because former

mayor Bob Parker’s city council

committed them to spend set

amounts on major projects

through the cost-sharing agreement

with Government.

However, the current city councillors

plan to do the same thing

to the next batch of councillors.

They are currently in discussions

with Government over the

agreement, and expect to sign the

new version by August, before the

October elections.

The current agreement includes

city council commitments of

almost $147 million to the Metro

Sports Facility, $60 million to the

new Central Library and $253

NEGOTIATION: The city council and Government are currently

renegotiating the cost sharing agreement. ​

million toward a new stadium.

Ms Dalziel said the discussions

were not a significant renegotiation,

but they were “tidying the

agreement up”.

She did not answer questions

from The Star about what the

consequences would be if the review

was delayed, or whether she

would consider delaying it until

after the elections.

Cr Raf Manji said delaying the

discussions would be likely to

hold up projects like the Metro

Sports Facility.

Cr Jamie Gough was part of the

former city council which signed

the agreement.

He said it would be difficult

to postpone the renegotiation,

because it would take time for the

new city councillors to “get their

heads around the problems” after

they were elected.

If there were any major changes

proposed to projects, he said he

would vote for the renegotiation

to be delayed.

“If there are significant changes,

it would be absurd for council

SAY ON THE FUTURE OF

CHRISTCHURCH.

to sign that off and I don’t think

anyone would want to do that.”

Keep Our Assets Canterbury

convener Murray Horton said no

matter the scale of the negotiations,

the new city councillors

would have to work with the new

agreement when putting together

budgets each year, so they needed

to have a say.

“This is a big, major decision

which needs to be done properly,

because these anchor projects

will set the structure of the city

for years to come.”

Former community board

member Rod Cameron, who is

running for council this year,

said the city councillors were

repeating the mistakes of the

past.

He believed they should wait

until the new council was elected,

even if it meant projects were

delayed.

“What’s another six months

when we’ve been waiting five and

a half, almost six years? It’s worth

being able to take that time and

assess things. A rushed decision

is not always the best one to

take.”

Massive rates

relief revealed

ARE two filing cabinets

at city council filled with

requests for rates relief due to

the earthquakes – amounting to

$16 million.

After the February 22, 2011

earthquake, property owners

were offered rates relief if their

properties were left uninhabitable.

About 8000 homes were redzoned

by the Government after

the earthquake.

Information released under

the Official Information Act

showed that the city council had

granted more than $16 million

in rates remissions as a consequence

of the February 22, 2011

earthquake.

Due to the sheer number of

applications, the city council

were not able to definitively find

out how many properties had

been granted a rates remission.

It would take, estimated the city

council, two weeks of staff time.

But it estimated that it had

processed about 8000 requests,

of which 90 per cent were approved.

The city council said

this gave an average of about

$2000 per property.

“But the amount will vary

considerably between different

properties,” said the response.

YOU CHECK THE

GEONET APP

GeoNet helps us all to make

our communities safer.

We live in the shaky isles and that means we need a high-tech

monitoring system to detect and measure geological hazards

like earthquakes.

Fifteen years ago, the Earthquake Commission collaborated

with GNS Science to create the world leading GeoNet system.

Today, its skilled team uses a network of more than 600 sensors

across New Zealand to detect, analyse and respond to

earthquakes, volcanic activity and other geological hazards.

The successful partnership between EQC and GNS continues

to thrive. EQC currently provides around $12 million a year in

funding. In turn, GeoNet data helps EQC to assess the risks

from natural hazards, and that helps keep Kiwi household levies

affordable at 15c for every $100 worth of cover.

GeoNet informs New Zealanders about natural hazards.

Its data is vital to many diverse users from power providers and

air traffic controllers to forest owners and insurers. The quality

and availability of GeoNet data also attracts some of the best

brains in the world, giving a boost to local research that would

otherwise not be possible.

GeoNet is part of EQC’s research and education programme.

Concern delays may

stall Timeball rebuild

• By Annabelle Dick

LYTTELTON residents are

worried the delay on the

Timeball Station rebuild

may cause the project to be

abandoned altogether.

Work to restore the station

has been postponed

due to nearby road works

which will block access

until at least the end of the

year.

Heritage New Zealand

was set to start the rebuild

this month but re-scheduled

to avoid conflict with

road works on Sumner Rd

and Reserve Tce.

But Lyttelton Community

Association president

Ken Maynard said residents

are worried that the

delay may mean the restoration

work is forgotten.

“If they put it on the

back burner, we’re worried

the project is going to be

dropped altogether.”

Mr Maynard has been

in contact with Heritage

New Zealand who assured

him they were not stalling

with a view to drop it, and

it was doing restoration

on the equipment in the

background.

Heritage New Zealand

has not been able to indicate

an exact date as to

when work will begin, as

it needs to know when the

site can be accessed.

While the work on

Reserve Tce is scheduled to

be completed by the end of

this year, work on the Lyttelton

end of Sumner Rd

is currently scheduled to

continue well into 2017.

Heritage New Zealand

acting southern region

general manager Frank

van der Heijden said

repairs can only be done

in spring or summer as the

stone masonry work uses

traditional lime mortar

and render, which could

only be set properly outside

of winter.

Mr Maynard said road

works are a priority, but he

wants a date so residents

can be assured work will

go ahead.

“What I can’t understand

is why won’t they say when

they’re going to start? If

they can’t start this spring

due to the roads, why can’t

they say it will be started

by October 2017? It’s a long

way off but at least it’s a

date.”

The station was constructed

in 1876 as a time

keeping device for ships in

the harbour, but was badly

damaged during the September

4, 2010 and February

22, 2011 earthquakes.

Mr Maynard said the

category one heritage

building is a crucial part of

Lyttelton’s identity and a

major tourist attraction for

the area.

NEGLECTED: Sol Square was in a derelict state not long before fire destroyed the building.

PHOTOS: URBEX CENTRAL

Sol Square’s shabby

state before the fire

• By Gabrielle Stuart

URBEX CENTRAL “urban

explorers” has released what are

possibly the last photographs

taken of Sol Square before it was

gutted in a fire last week.

The photos were posted online

on July 9, less than a week before

the fire, which is believed to have

been deliberately lit.

The photographer, who did

not want to be named, said the

square was “derelict”.

“We found the place was rather

trashed and the place felt severely

neglected. There were remnants

of people squatting and a lot of

graffiti.”

The future of Sol Square has

been uncertain since developer

Dave Henderson’s company

Property Ventures Ltd was put

into liquidation in 2010.

Disputes over the buildings

were still being fought in court

earlier this year.

Other developers have put

their hands up to take the project

on, but their attempts stalled

because of the disputes.

The fire left one of the buildings

so unstable it had to be

demolished on Saturday.

The Urbex Central pictures can

be found on their website www.

Members of the group have

been threatened with charges for

sneaking into abandoned buildings,

including the Christ Church

Cathedral, to take photos.

Tributes for young rugby player

• By Bridget Rutherford

A PROMISING rugby player has lost

his battle with a rare form of cancer

about two and a half weeks after he

was diagnosed.

Uto Enosi Tuipulotu, 19, died

last Thursday night after a short battle

with soft tissue sarcoma on his

heart.

His funeral was held yesterday at

Akaroa Area School, where he went

to school.

Uto came over to

Akaroa from Tonga

four years ago to attend

high school and

further his education.

He went on to become

a building apprentice

for Templeton Builders.

He had been having

trouble with a racing heart while at

rugby training, and went for a check

up, which was when they found the

cancerous growth.

His boss, Kevin Templeton, said

Uto began working for him while he

was at school.

He said Uto wanted to go back

to Tonga when he was a qualified

builder and help people in need by

building and repairing homes and

facilities.

“He touched just about everybody,

just with his mana and personality,”

Mr Templeton said.

‘He just had this

quiet, humble

dignity about

him that people

revered.’

“He was one in a million.”

Mr Templeton said Uto was someone

they could count on, and he was

always helping the Akaroa and Bays

Lions Club.

Uto’s former teacher, Garry Brittenden,

who helped bring him over,

said Uto had been diagnosed about

two and a half weeks before he passed

away.

“He just had this quiet humble dignity

about him that people revered.

That’s the real Uto

story.”

More than $25,000

was raised through a

Givealittle page and

donations to go towards

Uto’s treatment and

bringing his family over

from Tonga to be with

him.

Uto joined the Akaroa Volunteer

Fire Brigade while he was at school.

In 2014, he made the New Zealand

Barbarians area schools team, which

played the Chiefs under-18s.

He has also played for the Canterbury

Country and Ellesmere representative

teams, and was a Lincoln

colts player this year.

He was named Ellesmere under-19

player of the year in 2015.

Ellesmere’s under-16, 18, 21 and

senior teams honoured Uto with a

minute’s silence before their games

on Saturday.

MULTI-TALENTED: Uto

made the New Zealand

Barbarians area schools

team in 2014 and was

in the Akaroa Volunteer

Fire Brigade when he

was at school.

TRIBUTE: A memorial

(above) has been set

up next to Akaroa’s

waterfront to honour

Uto. (Left) Ellesmere

$12m for Lake Ellesmere

clean-up ‘not enough’

• By Tom Doudney

A $12 MILLION programme

to clean up Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere won’t be enough and

irrigation schemes like Central

Plains Water will make the

situation worse, a water expert

says.

Dr Bryan

Jenkins (left)

of the Waterways

Centre

for Freshwater

Management

recently

completed a study of six New

Zealand lakes, including Te

Waihora.

Environment Canterbury

and Ngai Tahu, in partnership

with the Government,

are leading the $12 million

Whakaora Te Waihora programme

to restore the lake

over the coming decades by

encouraging the growth of

macrophytes – aquatic plants

which can improve water quality.

Dr Jenkins said that while

this and other efforts to reduce

nutrient loads in the lake’s

catchment were positive,

they would be insufficient

to achieve sustainable water

quality due to intensification

which had taken place in the

catchment.

There was already too much

nitrogen and phosphorus

carried by groundwater-fed

streams entering the lake.

With Central Plains Water

and other intensification in

the catchment it was estimated

that the nitrogen load entering

the lake would reach 5600

tonnes per year.

Dr Jenkins said the Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee’s

‘good management practice’

approach would cut that to

follow us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch

4800 tonnes per year but for

the goal of transforming it

into a macrophyte lake to be

achieved, nitrogen would need

to be cut to more like 800

tonnes per year.

“What we are currently

experiencing is already unacceptable

not only in terms of

the lake load but also in terms

of the impacts occurring on

groundwater with respect to

drinking water quality and on

groundwater-fed stream flow,”

Dr Jenkins said.

ECan acting science director

Tim Davie said Dr Jenkins’

figures, while not incorrect,

were selective and missed the

point.

CONCERN:

Experts say

there is already

too much

nitrogen and

phosphorus

carried by

groundwaterfed

streams

entering Lake

Ellesmere.

There are many different

proposed interventions, not

just nitrogen reduction,” Mr

Davie said.

“If you tried to achieve a

macrophyte-dominated lake

purely by reducing nitrogen

then a nitrogen load of 800

tonnes per year would be required.

However, if there

is a range of other interventions,

such as phosphorus

reduction and stabilised lake

level, then a macrophyte-dominated

lake can be achieved

with higher nitrogen concentrations.”

Central Plains Water chief

executive Derek Crombie was

unavailable for comment.

Viewpoint

THE ANGLICAN Diocese is

sadly out of touch still with

Cantabrians over the future of

the Christ Church Cathedral.

The building is a constant

sad reminder of what happened

on February 22, 2011 – and to

many now an eyesore, a blight

on the Square as business and

tourism tries its best to get back

on its feet.

The diocese’s communication

skills in keeping the public

informed of what is happening

has been appalling; deciding

whether the Cathedral is to be

restored or demolished, slow

and painful.

Comments this week from

the diocese’s Auckland-based

spokesman, Jayson Rhodes, has

done nothing to boost the city’s

confidence.

Asked by The Press this week

about the Cathedral, Rhodes

replied: “The Diocese sees no

need for any questions and answers

regarding the Cathedral

until there is a decision from

the Cathedral Working Group.”

That will be December 7.

He repeated the same to The

Star.

Two weeks ago, there was

an air of expectation when the

diocese announced it was holding

a news conference about the

Cathedral.

The announcement was on

the same day The Star published

a front page article revealing

save the Cathedral campaigners

Jim Anderton and Philip

Burdon had been gagged from

talking about the Cathedral.

group say

they are

muzzled

• By Gabrielle Stuart

PHILIP BURDON and Jim

Anderton say they have been

gagged from talking publicly

about the future of Christ Church

Cathedral.

The former MPs, who are

trying to save the Cathedral from

demolition, signed confidentially

contracts in September last year

preventing them speaking about

a report carried out by Miriam

Dean QC into the arguments over

whether to save or demolish the

building.

That lapsed after the report was

released late last year, but this

week they told The Star they were

still told not to talk.

The gagging order came to light

this week when The Star asked the

two former MPs for an update on

the Cathedral.

Mr Burdon said he could not

talk about anything involved in

the process.

“[Gerry] Brownlee’s

office has requested complete

confidentiality, and accordingly

we respect his complete

confidentiality and it is entirely

up to his office to decide what

information, if any, they wish to

release,” he said.

But yesterday, Mr Brownlee’s

office threw confusion on the

gagging order when it referred

questions from The Star about

the confidentiality issue to

the Department of the Prime

Minister and Cabinet.

This was a departure from

previous stances when they

have openly talked about the

need to save the iconic building.

So when the diocese announced

the news conference,

there was a thought that the veil

of silence would be removed,

and the diocese would finally

give the people of Christchurch

some significant news.

But no. Just another tidbit –

the announcement of a working

party.

This five-and-a-half-years

after the earthquake, and a year

after the Government last year

appointed mediator Miriam

Dean, QC, in an attempt to

break the deadlock over the

building.

The diocese is sadly wrong if

it thinks the people of Christchurch

will keep putting up with

this.

We said:

What do you think

Christchurch, are we an Old

English City, a Garden City

or something else?

Following the destruction

of so many heritage buildings,

that were said to give

Christchurch its ‘Englishness’,

there is ongoing talk

around our city’s identity.

You said:

Leonard Cullarn – I have

always known Christchurch as

an Old English City of New Zealand

and I always love my city!

Let’s keep our English heritage

and our buildings. Build more

buildings using English heritage

of the city. If we lose heritage of

the city Christchurch wouldn’t

be Christchurch anymore.

So let’s give Christchurch its

Englishness back today! Like

our New Zealand flag we don’t

want to lose our heritage. Let’s

bring our old English city of

Christchurch back and keep our

history alive.

Jill Reesby – I have always

known Christchurch as the ‘Garden

City’ and as we grow and

move forward I believe we will

be a better ‘sustainable Garden

City’ plenty of red zone to do

this.

FOR THE purposes of my

column this week I’m wearing

a different hat than my role

supporting Christchurch

regeneration.

On Monday, I took great pleasure

in announcing the Government

has approved the purchase

of a new naval tanker for the

New Zealand Defence Force,

which will be ice-strengthened

and winterised for operations in

Antarctica.

The project will cost $493m

and will support a full range

of NZDF deployments, including

maritime sustainment and

Christine Schuler – Christchurch

can’t possibly be an

‘English’ city. It’s not in England.

Most of the heritage buildings

are gone and this is our chance

to develop a modern, userfriendly,

more sustainable city

that isn’t held hostage to the

wishes of those who refuse to

accept change.

Jake Huia Ranginui – Old

English city? Was well populated

by Maori before any English

were here to make it a English

city.

Frances Harrison – It was

known principally as the Garden

City but the Englishness of it really

added a special flavour that

had been developed over 170

years. The Avon is a tiny part of

that. The city could have lost its

rich past and what might have

humanitarian and disaster relief

operations.

The vessel will be built by

South Korean firm Hyundai

Heavy Industries and is expected

to be delivered in 2020.

It replaces the 30-year-old

Gerry Brownlee

been a rich future. I do hope

it doesn’t turn into a try-hard/

also-ran city that could be found

anywhere. Even the people have

changed and, from what I hear,

not for the best.

Ryan Jared – How about

something modern to attract

not only visitors but people who

live in Christchurch back into

the city. This “oh no we ain’t

building tall buildings because

they might fall down is rubbish”

Modern with a hint of the old

heritage to Christchurch. No

point rebuilding if you’re going

to design a city based on 2002.

Selwyn Eagle – We are the

best city in the world and just by

being us,we show it. Like us or

not come here and be amazed,or

not that is your choice.

Toni Muschamp Fulford – I

hope they rebuild the beautiful

Cathedral, that is what made the

city of Christchurch.

Alex Fuller – Used to be, now

a vibrant and dynamic changing

environment full of resilient

people.

Peter Cooper – Broken city

that still waiting to be repaired.

Wendy King – Will always be

the Garden City to me.

Paul Shepherd – Used to be

Karene Smith – It is so sad

that this situation of making

have been so long. Wanted

money on some projects within

the city should have been invested

earlier on security of the

Cathedral for materials salvaged.

Make a decision now, we have

waited far too long.

Frances S Harrison – Of

course it can be rebuilt and it

doesn’t have to cost lives. Ask

those in Europe who have rebuilt

their historic monuments after

various wars. They didn’t say:

‘Oh well too bad.’ No, these

structures meant something

and in NZ with so few historic

monuments it’s especially important.

The English character

of Christchurch should be

preserved as much as possible.

the Antarctic

It’s not backward thinking, in

fact it’s forward thinking. As

a resident of France I see the

horrendous loss of heritage as a

result of the Revolution and various

wars. People will always die

but those that come after should

have a sense of history, identity.

I’m a Cantab. Christchurch was

special and unique. Surely there’s

room for quality and history?

Jo Turnell – Too late now to

rebuild, leave part of the ruin as

a memorial and build a new one.

The new tanker will undertake

a similar role.

The NZDF can’t operate

without fuel, water, ammunition

and other bulk goods, and the

most effective way to deliver

fuel to ships, aircraft and vehicles

deployed overseas is by

tanker.

This vessel will be significantly

larger, will be able to refuel two

ships at a time while under way,

carry and refuel NZDF helicopters,

produce and store water,

and store and transport bulk

goods.

The Government has also opted

to include ice-strengthening

and winterisation features, representing

a very useful enhanced

capability when compared to the

current tanker.

This will allow it to deliver

fuel and other goods to support

Scott Base and McMurdo

Station during summer months

once an icebreaker has cleared a

path.

It is important that New Zealand

has a significant asset capable

of supporting our presence in

Antarctica and our interests in

the Southern Ocean more generally.

Recycle as much as possible from

the original and auction off the

rest as a fundraiser.

Gwyneth Carson-Jones – Stop

indulging the so-called heritage

protectors. Demolish immediately,

as this city will never be

able to move on until the symbol

of our city is able to.

Di Alpers – It should be left

as a ruin . . . it’ll be a sombre reminder

of the impact of quakes.

Cantabrians will know

this more than anyone, with

Funding squeeze

will affect education

WITH SCHOOL holidays

finishing, it’s a good time to

reflect on the state of our public

education system.

For us here in Canterbury, our

local schools have taken on an

extra level of importance in the

last few years, acting as havens of

security and continuity for kids

after the earthquakes.

Making sure every kid has the

tools they need to live up to their

potential has always been the

highest goal of our public education

system. It’s about making

sure that how much your parents

earn never becomes a barrier

to a child making the most of

themselves.

That’s the ideal, but as any

parent knows, these days the reality

of our so called free public

education system can be quite

different. Just like in health, the

Government has been putting

the squeeze on funding in education,

and its parents who are

picking up the tab.

Just a few months ago, the

Government cut per pupil

funding in our public education

system by $150 each. In this

year’s budget, they announced

they will be freezing operational

spending in schools entirely.

Now they are proposing a return

to the ‘bulk funding’ approach

of the 1990s, which saw schools

having to decide between paying

good teachers or spending

money upgrading classrooms.

The ones who miss out most

from these cuts are the kids, as

schools struggle to keep up. We

can see this clearly in the international

rankings of achievement.

According to the OECD,

in 2006, we were ranked fifth

in the world for reading, today

we’ve fallen to 13 th . We were seventh

in science but today we are

18 th . And in maths? We’ve fallen

from 11 th to 23 rd .

Meanwhile, tighter budgets

means schools are having to pass

more of the costs along to parents.

Ask any parent in Christchurch

and they will tell you about

the rising costs of “voluntary

donations” they are being asked

to meet each year.

The end result of the current

approach to education is parents

watching their kids schools

tumble down the international

rankings and paying more out

of their own pocket for the

privilege.

We’ve got to do better. We

know that education changes

lives, it’s the best way to give

our kids a great future. It’s time

to start investing properly in

education, rather than looking

for more places to cut.

Viewpoint

The Anglican Diocese won’t be talking publicly about the Christ Church

Cathedral until the recently-appointed Cathedral Working Group reports

back on its findings in early December. The Star asked how people felt

about the delay and what they want to see in the future

Jan Halliday,

foster parent, of

Sockburn: I feel that

they need to get to

it and do it. You

look at articles and

see it’s deteriorating

so I think it’s about

time they did something.

You think

they’d be more open

about discussing it

with residents but

it seems to be one

side against the

other.

Kilian Voigt,

student, of

Burnside: I have no

opinion. I don’t pay

enough attention

but they should just

get on with it there’s

nothing stopping

them. Shouldn’t

they be having

public forums on

the outcome of the

Cathedral? They

should do that

because then they

can get an idea of

what the people

want rather than

just what they want.

Tom Elder, drainlayer,

of Ilam: I

don’t have much

of a view as I don’t

really tune into that

sort of thing but

I guess it’s a little

unreasonable. It’s

such a big part of

Christchurch they

should definitely be

making a decision.

Personally. I’d like

to see it rebuilt.

Helen Goatley,

retired, of

Avonhead: They

have taken a long

time already and

another five months

seems unreasonable

– surely they must

know what they

want and what they

have the finances to

do. It was an iconic

centre but it would

take a lot of money

to rebuild so maybe

they should start

again by building

something new.

Aaron D’Auvergne,

musician, of New

Brighton: People

are interested in a

decision . . . it’d be

nice to know what’s

on the agenda.

They should be

more open about

it because I think

Christians across

the board are quite

interested as well as

wider Christchurch.

You can’t ignore a

destroyed Cathedral

– if they could

rebuild it that

would be great.

Mary Sinclair-

Porter, manager, of

Cardiff: It’s my first

day here so it’s all

new information to

me. At the moment

it’s being ruined by

those awful pigeons

so something needs

to happen fairly

quickly. It’s a beautiful

building but

they should build a

multi-cultural centre

and just reuse

what’s there. I know

it’s a heritage building

here but where

I come from they’re

thousands of years

old instead of 150.

Kathryn McKee,

caregiver, of

Waikanae: I’m still

reeling seeing all

the damage. I guess

to some people it

means a lot but

human life means

more and obviously

what they’re doing

is putting everything

back together

so that no more

lives are lost like

last time. I know it

means a lot to the

religious people but

there’s other priorities

at the moment,

like making the city

safe.

Janelle Mackie,

trainer, of

Spreydon: It’s been

too long and I think

everyone is well and

truly sick of the lack

of announcements

– I just want them

to make a decision

one way or another.

It’s got to the stage

where it’s an embarrassment.

A lot of

people came here

initially to see the

damage but now it’s

old and now they

need to figure out

what they’re going

to do.

PEOPLE

OPPORTUNITY: General manager Dilan De Silva

opened Fino Hotel last week. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

So where did the petfriendly

hotel idea come

from?

We wanted to do something

different in Christchurch,

so we wanted it to

be a bit quirkier, and more

than just another hotel. I

have a pet myself, so one

of things which was stopping

me from just going

on quick holiday or taking

many holidays was all the

planning you need to do.

Sometimes the neighbour

could look after him, but

sometimes it was too hard

or didn’t work out, so I

thought if you can travel

with a pet when you stay in

a luxury hotel that’s going

to be great. We also provide

them with welcome

packs, so for the dogs we’ve

got a walking map, snacks,

dog bags and tissues, a list

of places you can find dog

food or a vet, and things

like that.

I’ve heard of a petfriendly

hotel in New York

which has hosted a snake

and a penguin. How far

would you take it?

At the moment it’s dogs

and cats, but I suppose you

could bring a fish tank, and

we are open to options. I

think the question is are

they domestic pets and are

they trained, or else someone

will bring a cheetah.

So we’ll ask the questions

and make the judgement

then. But probably not a

penguin, I’m guessing it

will be too hot here for one,

although after the weather

last week perhaps it is possible!

And it’s been a pretty

tough time for the tourism

industry in Christchurch.

What was it that

made you say now’s the

time to open a hotel here?

There were a couple of

years when it was a big

challenge. We took over

the building two and a half

years ago and we’ve done

a $15 million renovation

and seismic upgrade. But I

think we’re opening at the

right time, when there is a

shortage of accommodation

and with the tourism

market picking up to

greater levels. The problem

in Christchurch is we have

plenty of accommodation

in the winter months and

not enough in the peak

summer months, so we

need a centre of attraction

to the city. I think the convention

centre is the biggest

push we can have and

we need to get it sorted,

and the second will be the

Heat Pump Specials

stadium where we can have

events. I think there are

some great activities and

great attractions around

Christchurch, so we’ve got

a great product to offer, but

those two key elements are

missing, and I think it’s

taken too long.

You must have moved to

Christchurch right before

the earthquakes – did you

ever think about leaving

after they hit?

No, I never wanted to

move. I came here and

I loved the place, and I

got stuck here. I thought,

look, if I can get through

this earthquake I can get

through the rest of it. I

think it’s a matter of having

the courage to get stuck

into it, and then when

things come back to life

you are an integral part

of it.

catered for at Fino

Tell me a bit about

your background? You’ve

worked all over the world,

right?

I am a Sri Lankan Portuguese

descendent, born in

Sri Lanka, but I left when

I was about 20 years and

did a bit of a world tour.

I did my post graduate in

Hawaii and in Holland,

and my first hotel assignment

was in Burma, where

I managed a luxury hotel.

From Burma I moved to

Thailand, where I worked

for three years, and then

to the Middle East where

I managed two hotels in

Qatar. I spent about four

years there and then went

to Vietnam for two years,

and then moved to New

Zealand about seven years

ago, and got stuck.

Was it a conscious

choice to move so much,

or was it just where the

work was?

Yes, I wanted to move

around and explore

and work in different

continents and get an

understanding of different

cultures, I enjoyed that until

I was about 35, but then

we had a son and that was

when we decided to move

to New Zealand and settle

Dilan De Silva

down.

And of all the places in

the world, why did you

choose Christchurch?

Well, it was the job offer

I got at Terrace Downs as

general manager, but as

I followed that through I

thought this was the right

city I wanted to live in,

with the right opportunities

here. And then the

earthquakes struck.

Working in these amazing

five-star hotels and

resorts, do you ever get

to stay in them yourself?

What’s been the best perk?

I do. I usually stay and

check it out, and try all the

different kinds of rooms

and as much as possible in

the restaurant, so you can

constantly keep yourself in

LUXURY:

The Fino

Hotel in

Kilmore St.

the loop and keep innovating.

But it is all luxury food

and luxury rooms, so I do

enjoy it.

Having worked in so

many cities, what are

your thoughts on what

Christchurch could become?

Oh, it’s going to be one

of the most vibrant cities

and most modern cities

you could ever live in in the

whole world, because you

can see the whole structure

changing and upgrading.

You can see it evolving in

front of your eyes, and I am

very excited to be part of it.

It’s going through a massive

change at the moment,

but I really think it’s going

to be one of the best places

to live in.

Taste

Baking perfection is no peice of cake

The Star continues its series talking with people cooking for you.

Cakes by Anna owner Anna Worthington

• By Gabrielle Stuart

IT WAS cake perfection:

Three layers baked, iced and

decorated, ready for a wedding

that afternoon – until Anna

Worthington dropped it.

As a new business-owner,

looking down at the mess that

was the once perfect cake she had

spent hours crafting, she said it

was one of her lowest points.

But also it taught her perspective,

she said.

She was able to pull herself

together and create a new cake

in just three hours, and the bride

and groom never learned about

the disaster, she said.

“I used to lose sleep over making

wedding cakes. But now

I think even in the worst case

scenario, if I was to walk into the

reception and drop the cake in

front of them, it would have to

be pretty bad to completely ruin

their wedding.”

It was the same attitude that

gave her the courage to quit her

job to start her own cake-making

business, Cakes by Anna.

She grew up in Christchurch,

but left the city as a teenager to

do a fine arts degree in Auckland.

She went overseas after she

graduated, and travelled around

Europe for more than a year.

There, she put her hand up for

whatever work she could find,

and discovered she really enjoyed

cooking and baking.

She was also inspired by the

food and culture around community

markets there, she said.

She returned to Christchurch

in 2012, not planning to stay for

long, but said she was inspired by

what was happening in the city.

“Growing up I didn’t have a big

attachment to Christchurch. It

felt it wasn’t exciting enough for

me. But coming back I was meeting

really interesting people, and

it felt like a fresh start.”

She began working in a cafe,

but on the side began developing

her own business idea, selling

cakes at the Christchurch Farmers

Market in Riccarton.

She said a lot of cakes being

sold at the time were very sweet

and covered in fondant, and she

wanted to do something different.

Her goal was to use as many

natural and local ingredients as

she could, and always experiment

– pulling together flavour

combinations like gin, lime and

coconut or her most popular

pear, date and salted caramel

cakes.

She began baking cakes after

work in her mother’s kitchen,

and selling them each weekend,

but she said the business grew

fast.

“I was working crazy hours,

from 6am to 2pm at the cafe

in the kitchen, and once I was

finished there I would go and do

baking until late. After about six

months doing both jobs I totally

burnt out.”

At that point she quit her job to

start baking full-time.

Although it was a big step, she

decided she had nothing to lose.

“After I quit the job I realised

I had so much more time to put

effort into it and really research

recipes, and instead of being

tired all the time I was really

enjoying it.”

She now has one employee,

and works form a commercial

kitchen in Linwood.

Although she has enough work

from orders from local cafes and

events to keep the business going,

she still plans to stick to her

roots and keep her market stall

running each week.

HOMEGROWN: Cakes By Anna started as a small stall at the

Riccarton House market, but Anna Worthington now works from

a commercial kitchen and has a growing customer base.

Gardening

Gardening Advice with

Congratulations! Today’s winning question came from Tracey Jack

QUESTION: What time of year do I prune my

grapevine (it is about 3 years old). How far back do

I prune it?

ANSWER: Grapes should be pruned as soon as

all the leaves have fallen off the vine (around now).

Depending on how you are training your grapevine,

main leaders should be established and spur

growth off the leaders should be pruned back to

two nodes (a node is to where growth will occur

from in spring).

While this appears to be very hard pruning, do not

be alarmed as grapevines put on a tremendous

amount of growth every year and fruit on the new

season’s growth.

It may be necessary through the growing season

to shorten back some of the vegetative growth to

allow for the better formation of fruit.

Be attentive to your grapevine in early spring as the new

shoots can be quite frost tender and therefore damaged

if there is a late frost in your area. To lessen the threat,

cover the vines with a frost cloth in late August through to

September.

Beating the odds to win model contest

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEAR miss from being

paralysed has encouraged a

Papanui High School student to

and try her hand in the

modelling scene.

Michaelee-Jayne McDonald,

16, won the Portfolio Model

Michaelee-Jayne, who had

always been interested in modelling,

said she tried out for the

competition because she wanted

to make the most of her opportunities.

The keen surfer’s perspective

on life completely changed last

year after an accident nearly left

her paralysed.

“I was at Sumner and I was

surfing up to the beach to get a

drink and I forgot I was about

30cm deep and I dived off my

board head first,” she said.

The accident caused her to

break her jaw, nose and have

about 80 internal stitches.

She said the doctors had told

her she was lucky not to be paralysed.

The accident had opened

up her mind to get the most out

of life.

But in spite of the scare,

Michaelee-Jayne still enjoys

surfing when she can and hopes

to edge her way into surf and

general sports modelling.

Not only does Michaelee-Jayne

surf, she plays competitive touch,

rugby and netball for her school.

On top of her sports development

she is taking all science

options at school in the hopes

of becoming an anaesthetist or

mechanical civil engineer.

The modelling competition

was for aspiring models aged

between 14-21 to be scouted by

the company.

Michaelee-Jayne along with

several other finalists has been

awarded a contract with the

city’s premier modelling agency.

Agency director Mel Radford

Brown said the standard was

high and the agency was

glad to have met the nine

finalists for the competition on

Monday.

Mrs Radford Brown described

Michaelee-Jayne as a stunning

natural beauty.

“She just stuck out a mile away

and I think the public will really

love her too,” she said.

While Michaelee-Jayne is new

to the modelling scene, she said

she is a confident person, enjoys

having her photo taken and is

keen to learn more.

She said to anyone else wanting

to try modelling to give it a

go.

“Don’t hold yourself back

as cliche as it sounds . . . don’t

worry about what other people

thinks,” she said.

HEALING: After a surfing accident nearly leaving her paralysed, Michaelee-Jayne McDonald is fully recovered and has been scouted by the Portfolio Model

Agency based in the city.

Play shows link between

unemployment, poverty

and mental health

Road by Jim Cartwright

Directed by Mike Friend

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A SPECTRUM of remarkable

performers have made themselves

at home in the newly opened Lyttelton

Arts Factory.

Produced by the Loons Theatre

Trust, one of writer Jim Cartwright’s

most poignant tales has

been brought to life conveying the

tragic affects of unemployment.

And, if this show is anything to

go by, I can’t wait to see what the

trust does next.

Road is a dark, mesmerising,

sometimes funny, play about a collection

of characters on No Hope

St.

It is set in Lancashire during the

Margaret Thatcher years, when

unemployment was high in the

north of England.

Although it is set in the 1980s,

the themes of despair, violence

and alcoholism could be found

anywhere today.

For the residents of No Hope St,

alcohol is the answer and the poor

continue to get poorer.

From the moment you walk into

the theatre, a large proportion

of the cast were already on stage

in a collection of different living

spaces.

The Star

The dimly-lit set, along with the

accents mastered by the capable

cast, reminds me of Coronation

Street.

The play’s about a tour along a

road led by the merry Scullery,

played by Tom Trevella, who introduces

the audience to the various

characters.

In one of the most haunting

scenes, Scullery shows the audience

a young couple, played by

Lucy Rossie and Hamish Tong,

who starve themselves resulting

in the woman dieing. This scene

was a heart-breaking reminder of

young people who feel they have

no future before their life has

begun.

This distressing scene is also an

insight into the growing problem

of mental health issues for young

people in New Zealand.

It is difficult to pick the standout

performers, but I think Janice

Gray, one of Christchurch’s performing

icons, does a marvellous

job of playing Molly who clearly

has Alzheimer’s disease. Gray gives

an excellent portrayal of the oldest

inhabitant of the street, bringing

humour to her role as she re-enacts

her glory days while getting ready

for a night out.

The play sparks a discussion

about the relationship between

mental health and unemployment.

Itty Bitty Beats’ award nominated feats

• Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A MUSICAL duo dedicated to

helping parents and children

bring more music into their

lives has been nominated for the

second time in the children’s

section of the Vodafone New

Zealand Music Awards.

Christchurch band Itty Bitty

Beats was formed by musicians

and busy mums, Lucy Hiku and

Jenny Payne. They have been

nominated for the Best Children’s

Music Album and APRA

Best Children’s Music Song.

The duo will be up against

Anika Moa, Anna van Riel and

Peter Weatherall.

Payne and Hiku first met at

the Ara Institute of Canterbury

Jazz School in 2001.

After marrying musical husbands

and having children, the

duo formed Itty Bitty Beats and

debuted with their album Bath

Time last year.

“We are both busy musicians.

We both use music in our lives

[and] we thought gosh wouldn’t

it be fun to make something of

this and help other people,” Mrs

Payne said.

She described Itty Bitty Beats

as practical music, filled with

fun characters and useful songs

about washing hair and filling a

bath with water.

Their latest album Lay Your

Head Down, along with the song

Po Marie, have been nominated

at this year’s awards.

Lay Your Head Down made

the top of the iTunes children’s

album chart in October.

The album is a collection of

lullabies with gentle soothing

music and native bird song.

And, after only a year of

starting up the band, their

music is already getting played

overseas.

Their single The Last Lullaby,

released last year, was created for

Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The song was made to help

people grieving the loss of a

child, and has travelled as far the

United Kingdom.

“My husband and I lost our

son who was three-days-old back

in 2009,” Mrs Payne said.

“So it wasn’t a song about him,

but it was inspired by the grief

that came with that.”

Itty Bitty Beats is as much

about helping people as it is

about celebrating life.

BRIGHT

MUSICIANS:

Lucy Hiku and

Jenny Payne’s

band Itty Bitty

Beats has been

nominated for

two children’s

music awards. ​

“This is a happy thing. We are

passionate about music, sharing

it with people and helping families,”

she said.

Already, the duo is working

on a “driving album” designed

to keep children entertained in

the car.

They will be travelling up to

Auckland to celebrate the awards

on August 9.

Travel

Cruise on the smartest ship at sea

• By Mike Yardley

BY ANY measure, it’s a colossus

and it’s coming to a port near

you. After all, this is a ship that

cracks 19,900 eggs a day in its

main kitchen.

Fresh from the inaugural sailing

from its European shipyards

via the Middle East to Asia, I’ve

just spent three night’s aboard

Ovation of a Seas on a taster

cruise out of Singapore.

New car smell is a knock-out

fragrance, but new mega-ship

smell kept my nostrils partying

for 72 hours. So just how big is

this billion dollar behemoth?

It may not be the most salubrious

frame of reference, but

she weighs in at four times the

tonnage of Titanic. She’s three

and half rugby fields long. One

and a half laps around the running

track clocks up a kilometre.

Catering to 4900 passengers and

boasting 1300 crew, she towers

15 stories.

Currently ranked as the

fourth-equal largest cruise ship

in the world (Royal Caribbean

clean sweeps the top five), this

latest entrant to the company’s

Quantum Class of vessels is also

considered the smartest ship at

sea.

Aside from the daily Cruise

Compass programme of activities,

there’s a conspicuous

absence of paper – a very good

thing given passenger loading.

Liberally sprinkled across

the ship, Royal IQ stations and

mounted iPads, enable you to

VIRTUAL SKYDIVING: Soar like an eagle and get full body

exfoliation.

book every activity imaginable,

from shore excursions, to spa

treatments. You can also download

the Royal IQ app, which

doesn’t require paid for WiFi to

operate, to make bookings and

build your custom calendar, on

your own device.

Speaking of WiFi, Royal

Caribbean reputedly offers

the speediest service at sea. I

despise WiFi charges, and Royal

Caribbean’s web packages start

at a pesky US$13 a day – but at

least the service is robust and

Roadrunner-fast.

The design elements and contemporary

art works throughout

the vessel ooze class, comparable

to the fresh, crisp and elegant

interiors of a new build, five-star

hotel. Royal Caribbean whips

up much buzz over its inventive

prowess to its active leisure

and entertainment offerings like

ROBOTIC: Quench your thirst in the Bionic Bar. Order up a

cocktail on the iPad and watch the robotic mixologists make it,

North Star, the glass capsule that

soars 90m above and to the side

of the ship, and Flowrider, the

virtual surfing innovation.

But the newest toy is Ripcord

by iFLY – the world’s first freefalling

skydive simulator at sea.

Previously disgracing myself

on Flowrider, I was determined

to make a better fist of virtual

skydiving. After being suited up

and given a basic skills briefing,

you’re encased within a billowing

glass tube, with a gargantuan

vertical fan (covered by a

grill) blasting air up at you at

160km/h.

Thrust airborne, I felt like a

levitating monk. And if you’ve

studiously followed the briefing,

astutely assuming the optimum

body positions, you’ll soar like

an eagle. But you certainly feel

battered by the wind force.

After this unexpected full

body exfoliation, I saw no need

to book a spa treatment or massage.

iFLY is an energising bodybashing

thriller. The entertaining

swirl of sensory thrills continue

at Seaplex, which is like a minitheme

park.

Royal Caribbean’s bells and

whistles are all geared at courting

the family market, although

there were plenty of seniors

aboard having a whale of time.

At night, I sampled Two70, the

futuristic entertainment venue

which has revolutionised the

typical big-show affair at sea.

BEHEMOTH: Ovation of a Seas caters up to 4900 passengers

with 1300 crew.

The multi-storey glass-panelled

back end of the ship transforms

into a sweeping screen for

projections, while six flat-screen

rhythmic robots, called roboscreens,

rev up the illumination

magic even more.

Studded with high-tech wizardry,

the multi-dimensional live

shows on Ovation of the Seas

would have to be the best I’ve

ever seen, on a cruise. Robotic

technology has also invented

mixology, with Royal Caribbean’s

Bionic Bar. Order up a

cocktail on the bar’s iPad and

watch the robotic mixologists

make it and shake it.

When it comes to libations, I

far prefer chatting to bar staff but

for pure gimmickry, the Bionic

Bar is a good for a giggle.

Prior to boarding, I had apocalyptic

dreams about how hideous

feeding 5000 people, at the same

time, might look. The traditional

notion of the main dining room

has been unceremoniously axed

on Ovation, replaced with five

complimentary and distinct

main restaurants.

They form part of the ship’s

full culinary arsenal, serving up

an unrivalled 18 separate dining

venues. I sampled some the

ship’s signature restaurants, like

Izumi, Wonderland and Jamie’s

Italian, which were truly exceptional.

If you’re up for a dose of extravagant

molecular gastronomy

in fantasy surrounds, Wonderland

wows with its zany, foodscience-based

cuisine.

FAST FACTS

• Royal Caribbean’s

Ovation of the Seas is an

astoundingly impressive

ship. She will be the

newest and largest ever

ship to visit New Zealand

shores, as part of her

Down Under summer

season. For sailings and

Kick-off Saturday at 2.45pm

LAST WEEK I wrote about

our family dividing and

conquering for the school

holidays, with my hubby

and two eldest girls heading

north for a week to visit

relatives, while I remained

at home with our two-anda-half-year-old

twins.

To be honest, it’s been a

funny old week without the

full family complement.

Although still busy with the

relentless bustle that comes

with having dependents, I’d

forgotten what it was like

looking after only two preschoolers.

For starters: we have

had very slow mornings.

We’ve had enjoyed leisurely

breakfasts and stayed in

our PJs until 10am most

days (whereas the Big Girls

would have already had

three outfit changes and

burst out the door by then).

Books, puzzles, painting,

Playdough and colouringin

have dominated the

mornings, and most

afternoons have been spent

wandering different parks

and playgrounds. The days

have felt longer, less chaotic,

and generally pretty chilled.

And that’s a lot different from

how we usually operate.

The second difference in

the home dynamic has been

the simple lack of chatter.

Although the twins are full

of toddler-talk, they have

only just come to converse

amongst themselves in a

peculiar sort of twin-speak

that I just can only sometimes

decipher.

Although I talk to/with

them all the time, it’s fair

to say that I don’t get a lot

of constructive stuff back. I

compare this to my five and

six-year-olds, who are full

of inquiry, curiosity, and

constantly making observations

and offering opinion.

They’re at a stage when we

can talk about stuff, share a

joke or discuss a topic.

And although I find myself

often mentally pleading

for at least five minutes

peace and quiet at least

once a day, I’ve actually

missed the banter and fun

that my two little chatterbugs

often bring.

Thirdly: I had entirely underestimated

the amount of

time my big girls keep their

little sisters in-check and

entertained (and out from

under my feet). From their

first waking moment, they

seek each other out and

remain a solid little gang for

the time they are together.

Without their big sisters to

guide/boss them in their

play, I have found the twins

Melissa McDonnell

came to me more frequently

to help resolve their

issues, whereas their Big

Sisters would usually take

charge to sort it without me

knowing. Obviously, this

has kept me in pretty much

constant demand, and so

any such “spare time” I

might have had has pretty

much been occupied.

Summing up: I guess my

“week with three” has been

rather strange. Much to my

surprise, I have actually

missed the busy-ness and

energy around the house

that their quadrangular

creates.

But I know that the Big

Girls have had an amazing

time catching up with their

cousins and creating precious

memories. Equally,

the twins and I have had a

lovely week together – no

deadlines or schedules has

meant solid and special

time together. I guess that’s

what the holidays are all

about – having fun!

Although I must say I

am looking forward to the

day we are all back together

again, the noise is back

and our chaotic balance is

restored.

signing the young utility.

Lara Pitt announced on Fox

Sports’ The Monday Night Show

with Matty Johns, that she had

spoken to Lolohea’s manager who

confirmed the star was being lured

away from the club.

Lolohea reportedly received

three text messages from three

different clubs during Saturday

night’s match, and by the end of

the weekend had five clubs offering

him a starting spot.

Doyle said it wasn’t surprising

clubs were interested but

confirmed Lolohea wasn’t going

anywhere.

“To be honest with you there

is probably more than five clubs

interested in Tui, the same there

is with lots of our other players,”

Doyle told Martin Devlin on the

DRS on Radio Sport.

“Tui is a big part of our longterm

future. He’s contracted with

us for this year, next year and 2018

so he’s not going anywhere. He’s

very much part of our future.”

Doyle said a main reason they

granted Thomas Leuluai a release

from his contract was because

they see Lolohea as his replacement

in the halves.

Controversy stirred among the

rugby league fraternity when Lolohea

was kept on the bench until

the 81st minute in the Warriors’

golden-point loss to the Manly Sea

Eagles.

Lolohea, who has been a standout

player for the Warriors this

season, also received limited minutes

against the Sharks in another

golden-point loss back on June 25.

Warriors coach Andrew McFadden

defended his decision saying

they wanted to put Lolohea in the

game, they just didn’t have a place

to put him.

McFadden is reported to have

contacted Lolohea’s manager in a

bid to keep his young playmaker,

saying he still had him in his

plans.

Former-NRL player Matty Johns

said on The Monday Night Show

with Matty Johns that he couldn’t

believe Lolohea wasn’t currently

starting.

“I just can’t work it out,” he said.

“A player of such extraordinary

talent.”

The Warriors face the Raiders

on Saturday in Canberra, 5pm

New Zealand time.

Countdown to Rio

Keeping goal at the Olympics

The Rio De Janerio Olympic Games begins in two

weeks. Sports reporter Gordon Findlater counts

down to the games, highlighting some of our

brightest talents. This week he looks at Football

Ferns’ goalkeeper Victoria Esson, who helped to

book her spot to the games by playing in the men’s

team

• By Gordon Findlater

FOR VICTORIA Esson, it was

a word in her ear from New

Zealand Football in 2015 that

helped to set her path to Rio.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper

attended a Football Ferns trial

camp early last year. She was

advised to join a men’s team to

help with the development of

her game and was sent back to

Christchurch.

Esson spent 2015 playing for

the Ferrymead Bays’ premier

reserve men’s team. The tactic

worked – she was selected to

travel with the Football Ferns

squad to Rio.

“It was more around the match

speed and playing at a level weekin-week-out

that isn’t dissimilar

from playing at international

level. It was pretty intimidating

during my first couple of

games, but my team was really

welcoming. Eventually I got used

to the guys, it became a normal

thing in the end, as opposed to

something I wasn’t used to,” said

Esson.

She may now be one of the

country’s top goalkeepers. However,

donning the gloves wasn’t

Esson’s preferred role until midway

through her career.

MAINLAND’S PRIDE: Victoria Esson, 25, is one of three Canterbury players heading to Rio with

the Football Ferns.

a 10-year-old was her first taste

of football. She caught the bug,

quickly signing up to play for

Halswell United.

Esson played outfield with

the boys through 11th, 12th and

13th grade before joining a girls’

team. It wasn’t until she was 17

that playing goalkeeper became

an option.

“I kind of started at the top of

the pitch and moved backwards.

I ended up playing mostly leftback

and centre-back before

switching to keeper.”

In fact, she may have never

made the switch if it wasn’t for a

teammates misfortune.

While at a tournament, her

team’s goalkeeper was injured.

Esson was the only other player

in the team with goalkeeping experience,

although she had never

kept goal in a football match.

Esson spent six years in the net

playing goaltender in her second

sport of choice, ice hockey.

As a youngster, she played

roller hockey before moving onto

the ice. She even represented

Canterbury at national provincial

level before making the decision

to focus on football.

The move to goalkeeper paid

immediate dividends and after

only a few years in the role, she

had secured a college scholarship

to Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

Esson had a brief professional

stint with Norwegian club Avaldsnes,

but opted to head back

home to New Zealand. Esson

has since played club football for

Coastal Spirit and Ferrymead

Bays, while also playing for the

Mainland Pride in the national

women’s league.

She’s no stranger to representing

New Zealand at big tournaments,

playing in the under-17

World Cup in New Zealand. She

also took part in two under-20

World Cups in Chile and Germany.

Esson’s role with the national

team in Rio is expected to be

restricted to the training field.

The goalkeeper is one of four

travelling reserves selected in the

Olympic squad.

“Every single training you

don’t know what’s going to happen,

so you’ve just got to be ready

to go if you get the call up.”

The Football Ferns departed

for Rio on Tuesday to begin their

final pre-tournament training

and get accustomed to conditions.

The team face a tough draw.

Their first match is against defending

Olympic champions, the

United States, on August 3. They

then play Columbia and France

in their final group matches.

Despite the tough group, the

team are confident of eclipsing

Football Ferns’ Olympic

draw

August 3 v USA at Belo

Horizonte

August 6 v Colombia at

Belo Horizonte

August 9 v France at

Salvador

their quarter-final finish in London

four years ago.

“If we are going to win a gold

medal, which is our ultimate

goal, we’re going to have to beat

these teams somewhere along

the line, so why not do it in our

group.”

Date of birth: March 6,

1991

Height: 173cm

Hometown: Christchurch

Position: Goalkeeper

Caps: 0

Club: Ferrymead Bays

Fact: Esson worked as a

portfolio manager for the

Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority, having

completed postgraduate

studies in wind energy and

industrial engineering at

Texas Tech.

ANOTHER WEEK, another

game, but Highlanders assistant

coach Tony Brown admits it is just

not one more match.

The Highlanders got into their

work yesterday after two days off,

beginning preparations to take on

the Brumbies in a quarterfinal in

Canberra on Friday night.

Brown said the side was getting

excited about the game but this

week was about getting the body

and mind right.

There will be very little training

[this week] and it is more about recovering

from a pretty tough game

against the Chiefs and us getting

ready to play against a pretty good

Brumbies side,’’ he said.

“We have had a couple of days

off and the guys are a bit sore. But

it is quarter-finals time and we

have been preparing since December

to make it to this stage. Everyone

wants to play and everyone

wants to be ready.

“It’s a bigger game and guys

get more excited around play-off

games. The same as the opposition

– they will be bringing a lot

of intensity for the first 20-30

minutes. So it is going to be a huge

challenge early on.

“It’s just about playing good

footy and backing our game and

the way we play the game. Just

making sure defensively we are

clear in what they are going to

throw at us.’’

Brown said as wet weather was

forecast, the side might have to

vary the game plan although it had

to back itself and not get sucked

into playing a style which suited

the Brumbies.

The Australian teams are

always a tough challenge for us.

They have got a lot of good rugby

players and play a pretty good style

of footy. Every time we play an

Aussie team we know we are in for

a tough game.’’

Brown said the Highlanders’

kicking game might come into

play but it depended on many

factors.

“We’ve had a pretty good look at

the Brumbies and we have got our

plans in place . . . there’ll be plenty

Brown said the Highlanders

the conditions were also going to

make it tough.

“Canberra is not a great place to

Driven

Baby Holden provides a Spark

• By Ross Kiddie

THE UNDER $20,000 segment

of the new car market has shown

some resurgence in recent years.

In recent decades it was an

area where manufacturers didn’t

place a big emphasis on – the

margins were small and finding

product wasn’t always easy.

But being able to buy a new

car at the same price as something

pre-owned certainly has

appeal, and there’s now a wealth

of hatchbacks available here

fresh from Asia – especially

China, Japan and South Korea.

One of the latter is Holden’s

Barina Spark, which has been

quite successful for GM Holden,

with a new-generation model

just landing.

It arrives here in three variants

starting at $16,490 for a manual

LS variant (automatic $17,990),

while an LT model tops out at

$19,990 as tested.

Although the Barina Spark

shares its name, it is engineered

a little differently to Barina; the

Spark gets a 1.4-litre engine and

continuously variable transmission,

as opposed to a 1.6-litre

unit and six-speed auto, and it

sits on a floorpan with wheelbase

and track just a little smaller

than Barina.

Nevertheless, the Spark

appeals in other ways, it is most

certainly designed to capture the

imagination of the young, those

buyers who want something

new, as well as being trendy and

funky. It comes with vivid colour

schemes and an interior package

which is bright and breezy,

yet will also lure those from all

generations who don’t have a

big budget. The test car often

captured attention, and not just

from the younger set.

Standard fitment on the high

grade model is respectable given

its price point. Major items

include single-zone air conditioning,

leather-like trim, keyless

entry and ignition, electric

windows all round, and Holden’s

sophisticated MyLink infotainment

system.

The latter has been upgraded

to include Android Auto

and Apple CarPlay, the latter

interacts with Apple product

through a central dash panel

screen. All of the mobile

functions are available from

there along with navigation and

music accessibility.

More importantly, the

Barina Spark gets a fivestar

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety rating.

There are five overshoulder

seat belts, no fewer than six air

bags, ISOFIX child seat tethers

and ABS which is aligned to a

traction and stability control

system. The latter all operate on

a front disc/rear drum brake system,

one of the few mainstream

hatchbacks left in today’s market

using a rear drum.

The designers have put in a

huge effort to make the car userfriendly

and desirable in terms

of kit and functionality. Not only

does it have a bold, eye-catching

exterior appearance, there’s a

host of internal elements that are

there to tempt.

And, what’s more, the Spark

is easy on fuel. Holden claim

an Australian Design Rules

combined average figure of

5.5-litres per 100km (51mpg).

The fuel usage readout was constantly

listing around 6.2l/00km

(46mpg) with 5l/100km (56mpg)

available at a steady 100km/h

cruise (engine speed 2000rpm).

Powering the Spark is a

brand new, four-cylinder, twincamshaft,

16-valve unit which

displaces 1298cc. Holden claim

power outputs of 73kW and

124Nm, both reaching their

maximums at traditional points

of the rev band, 6200rpm and

4400rpm respectively.

Consequently, it’s no powerhouse,

and this is reflected

in slowish acceleration times

– 11.2sec to make 100km/h

from a standstill and 7sec to

reach 120km/h from 80km/h.

Realistically, I wouldn’t have

expected anything quicker,

the Spark is not here to scorch

along, but to provide economical

and comfortable travel like small

cars are meant to do.

However, you can stir the little

engine up if you wish, the

seamless gearing of CVT allows

access to the upper rev band

providing the sensation of sporty

motion.

The engine is a willing worker,

it emits a cheery, lively sound,

which doesn’t appear strained,

relatively eager, there’s no point

where it falls off-cam.

One of the big surprises is the

Spark’s handling and feel from

behind the wheel. A lot of that

has to do with the development

work Holden has done in

Australia for down under conditions.

The steering and suspension

calibration has been tuned

for the type of roads we have

down under, including acceptability

when presented with

gravel surfaces.

When it comes to tackling

corners, the Spark has

reasonable steering accuracy

and front end precision. It must

be mentioned that the frontstrut/rear

tube beam suspension

isn’t sophisticated, yet it does a

reasonably good job of soaking

up the uneven road surfaces

and containing body movement

against the force of gravitational

change.

The Spark deserves to do

well here, it’s a tough market

to compete in but it stands out

for its design appeal. It is the

quintessential easy-to-drive, easyto-

park vehicle and comes with

all the benefits of buying new.

We’ve brought

our history back

to the future.

Blackwell Motors have been a driving force in business and motoring in our region since 1923 and

Toyota Fortuner launched

• By Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA NEW Zealand

has recently launched a

new sports utility vehicle.

The seven-seat Fortuner

offers a mid-size diesel

SUV set to tackle the

demands of families and

business owners alike with

unprecedented safety, style

and 4WD capability.

Toyota believes the

Fortuner is ideally

positioned to appeal to

those seeking a purposebuilt

and contemporary

SUV and is expected to

sell between 600 and 700

Fortuners in 2016.

“It’s well positioned

to provide us with

an incremental sales

opportunity, especially

with private buyers,” said

Steve Prangnell, Toyota

New Zealand’s general

manager of sales.

The Fortuner range offers

three grades – GX, GXL

and Limited, all powered

by the advanced 2.8-litre

diesel engine launched in

the Land Cruiser Prado

and all-new Hilux at the

end of 2015.

There are three drives

modes, eco, normal and

power and an easy to use

four-wheel-drive selector

with the options of high

range 2WD and 4WD or

low range 4WD for when

you need to alternate

from the ultimate urban

transporter through to an

adventure machine.

The Fortuner’s engine

produces 130kW and

450Nm of torque. The

manual has a combined

fuel consumption of

7.8l/100km and the

automatic at 8.6l/100km.

There is a braked tow

rating of 2.8-tonne for

the automatic models

and three tonne for the

manual.

The Fortuner gets a

five-star ANCAP safety

rating.

Prices range from

$70,990 to $78,990.

SHOW HOMES

- the ultimate way to shop around

Across Canterbury, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes to demonstrate

their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle,

featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can.

You can absorb the ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes and compare. You can

see at a glance features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you will see the building companies’ attention

to detail. Show homes are the perfect way to get a good

idea of pricing, discover good quality

and value, learn about superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and

long-term returns. So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and begin the

exciting project of building your own home.
