City in dark over how

much water is needed

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A THREE year investigation

into Christchurch’s water supply

has found local authorities do

not know how much water

will be needed as the city grows.

It comes at a time when the

city’s aquifers have hit record

lows, and councils are looking at

ways to cut the amount of water

being used.

A report on the situation by

Golder Associates was commissioned

by the city council, and

cost $20,000.

It said a model needed to

be developed to calculate the

“sustainable yield” of the city

water supply, based on population

growth, the rural

water demand and industrial

use.

It also said more information

was needed about how the water

supply might be contaminated,

and agencies responsible for

managing it needed to work

together better.

The recommendations are

set to be put to a city council

committee tonight, which will

then discuss what the next steps

should be.

Former Environment Canterbury

chief executive and

environmental planner Bryan

Jenkins said the city council and

regional council had been working

together four years ago to

estimate how much water could

sustainably be taken from the

aquifers.

But he said that project had

been put on hold as staff focused

on other priorities.

Per person, he said Cantabrians

used a lot more water than

in other cities, so he said something

would need to be done

to reduce the amount of water

used.

That could mean charging

Cantabrians for the water they

used, he said.

The report is the latest in a

series on the state of the aquifers,

which the city council began in

2013.

It commissioned Golder Associates

to look into how much

was known about the aquifers,

and what the gaps in knowledge

were.

As part of the work it has

talked to experts from the different

agencies responsible for

the aquifers, and brought them

together for a workshop.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw a storm wreck six

ships in Lyttelton Harbour on July 27, 1851.

On July 28, 1964, the city council cut down

trees on Rolleston Ave, at the request of

Christ’s College. An intense public protest

followed. July 30, 1921, saw Canterbury

become the first New Zealand provincial

rugby team to beat the Springboks. In other

sport, on July 30, 1976, seven Canterbury

men were part of the gold medal winning

hockey team at the Montreal Olympics. And

on July 31, 1856, Christchurch became the

country’s first city by Royal Charter.

Cherry blossoms will honour

quake deaths; celebrate rugby

• By Annabelle Dick

TWENTY EIGHT young

Japanese language students

lost their lives when the CTV

building collapsed during the

February 22, 2011, quake.

Now eight cherry blossom

trees will be planted in the

Botanic Gardens to honour their

memory.

The trees, donated by the city

of Ishinomaki, Japan, will be

planted at the Botanic Garden’s

World Peace Bell garden next

month to honour victims of

New Zealand and Japan’s earthquakes.

Just weeks later, Japan was

struck by a devastating 9.0 magnitude

earthquake and tsunami

which killed about 16,000 people.

The city of Ishinomaki lost more

than 3000 people.

New Zealand World Peace Bell

member David Bolam-Smith

said the commemoration project

came about when he met Japanese

families and representatives

at the five-year anniversary in

February.

Zen Buddhist priest Taigen

Goto was there on behalf of

one of the families when Mr

Bolam-Smith invited him to

ring the peace bell to pray for

the Japanese students lost in the

CTV building.

Mr Bolam-Smith said he was

telling Mr Goto about his plans

to plant cherry trees from the

bell to the river when he offered

some help.

“He pulled out his wallet and

gave me $500 dollars on the spot

and said, ‘please plant cherry

trees here to remember the people

who died in the Christchurch

earthquake and the tsunami and

quakes in Japan’,” Mr Bolam-

Smith said.

After planting trees in

Christchurch, Mr Bolam-Smith

will also travel to Mr Goto’s

home city of Ishinomaki to

return the favour by planting

cherry blossoms to remember

the victims of both the Christchurch

and Japan earthquakes.

“We’re building a cherry blossom

bridge between the two

countries,” he said.

Ishinomaki is home to a training

facility being built for the

Rugby World Cup in 2019, and

Mr Goto wanted to build the

connection between Christchurch

and Japan even more for the

world cup.

Mr Bolam-Smith will travel to

the city in September to plant the

trees outside the stadium in the

presence of Japan Rugby Football

Union representatives and the

city mayor.

The trees and a commemorative

plaque will honour the

victims of both quakes, our

countries friendship and our

love of rugby,” Mr Bolam-Smith

said.

He will travel to Japan on

September 1.

He’s also urging residents to attend

the public tree-planting ceremony

at the Botanic Garden’s

World Peace Bell to remember

those who lost their lives on

August 11 at 2.30pm.

In Brief

SEX ATTACK LEADS

Police say they are following

strong leads due to information

from the public in relation to

a sexual attack in Ilam in the

early hours of Friday morning.

A woman was walking by

herself through the Ilam Fields

towards Waimairi Rd, near

Canterbury University, when

she was grabbed by a man and

pulled to the ground. Detective

Sergeant Nicola Reeves said the

offender threatened the woman

and sexually assaulted her before

running off.

SCHOOL BELL STOLEN

Sydenham School’s bell has

been stolen nearly 20 years after

the school closed its doors. The

original bell from the school,

on the corner of Brougham

and Colombo Sts, was moved

to Buchan Playground after it

closed in 1999. But city council

head of parks Andrew Rutledge

said the bell was missing and was

“believed to be stolen”. “Council

staff are making contact with

local police regarding this,” he

said.

ODOUR LEADS TO FINE

The city council and Living Earth

have both been fined $1000 for an

“offensive odour” wafting outside

the compost plant’s boundary on

June 14. Environment Canterbury

issued the infringements on June

30, because it breached consent.

Investigations and incidents

regional leader Valyn Barrett said

there have been 57 complaints

about the compost plant’s odour

in the past two months, with two

being substantiated.

TOP HOME AWARDS

Canterbury’s top new builds will

be announced at a gala dinner at

Water supply

concerns

•From page 1

It now recommends another

workshop should be held between

city council, ECan and Selwyn

District Council staff to look at

who is responsible for what and

how they communicate.

The report said different agencies

managing the water had not

always communicated with one

another.

That meant some work done on

the water was redundant, as other

agencies had done very similar

work but had not let others know.

It said the biggest issue was between

ECan and the city council,

but it also affected Selwyn District

Council, academics and Government

scientists.

It said working together would

be crucial if they were to improve

the protection and management

of the water resources.

“A fundamentally different way

of organising and communicating

the value of Christchurch’s

groundwater resource and how

best to protect and manage this

asset is needed.”

Pauline Cotter, who sits on the

committee looking at the issue,

said communication was an issue

because of the number of different

agencies involved.

New Springboks tour research

• By Tom Doudney

CAPTURING THE experiences

and impacts of the 1981

Springbok tour on ‘ordinary’

New Zealanders, rather than

prominent protesters, is the

focus of a new research.

The three match tour saw

mass protests against Apartheid

in South Africa, inside and outside

the stadium, with the game

in Hamilton called off.

Canterbury University

masters student Melissa

Morrison, who is writing her

thesis on the subject, said most

recent texts were written by or

about prominent

individuals

such as leading

protesters Trevor

Richards and

John Minto.

They really

haven’t told the

everyday New

Zealanders’ story

John Minto

and so what I am trying to do is

to uncover these everyday stories

of people who may not have

necessarily protested or gone to

the games, they may have just

carried on with their normal

lives, but they still had an opinion,”

Ms Morrison said.

TURBULENT

TIMES REVISITED:

Melissa Morrison

will be interviewing

people about their

experiences of the

1981 Springboks tour. ​

“Most of what has been

written about the tour was

written in the immediate

aftermath so it kind of just

explains what happened rather

than the reasons why and I

think that’s because it was too

fresh in the New Zealand psyche

to really digest why people acted

as they did.”

Her research would cover

both people’s feelings at the time

and how they felt about it in

hindsight.

“I am going to be asking people

‘if the same sort of situation

were to happen today would you

act in the same way, would your

opinion have changed and does

that reflect on New Zealand

society changing as well?’”

Although Ms Morrison, 22,

had not been born when the

tour took place, she came from

a “rugby mad” family and

both of her parents attended

the Christchurch test match as

rugby supporters.

“I do have to keep in check my

own biases when I eventually

come to write it so that it is

balanced but yes, I have heard

my parents’ stories about it and

the protesters trying to break on

to the field at Lancaster Park.”

• Ms Morrison is looking for

people to interview and anyone

who would like to take part in

her research can phone her on

Less spent on anchor projects

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE GOVERNMENT spent

$374 million less than promised

on anchor projects in the last

year, according to its latest

estimate.

More than $440 million was

set aside to spend on major

Christchurch projects in the year

to June, but the estimated actual

spend was just $65 million.

It spent less than planned

on every major anchor project,

including developing the

Christchurch Bus Interchange,

the Metro Sports Facility,

Cathedral Square and the

Convention Centre.

Almost $90 million of the

money set aside to buy land

for the major anchor projects

has already been cut from that

budget, and used to cover other

Government expenses.

But Department of Prime

Minister and Cabinet Greater

Christchurch Group director

Kelvan Smith said spending

fluctuated from year to year.

“With the construction of

some big ticket items still to

come, such as the Metro Sports

Facility and Convention Centre,

naturally there is a substantial

amount of spending still to

come.”

The money which was not

spent would be carried over until

the next financial year, and he

said it would be available when it

was needed.

The Government’s commitment

to the recovery and regeneration

of greater Christchurch

remains – in fact the overall

spending is forecast in the latest

Budget to increase to more than

$17 billion.”

Accountant Cam Preston,

who has been tracking Government

spending on the rebuild,

said delays were to be expected.

“In the commercial world

when you’ve got a problem the

best thing to do is sit on it until

it goes away.”

But his concern was how

much money might be eaten

up in administration each year

projects were delayed.

“Promises cost nothing,

they’re dirt cheap, and while

everyone has been talking about

the promises and throwing

highly paid experts at the promises,

nothing has come out of it,”

he said.

ECan

cracks

down on

water use

• By Tom Doudney

FARMERS WHO don’t have

a water meter installed by the

coming irrigation season are

likely to face prosecution as

Environment Canterbury seeks to

get tough on non-compliance.

ECan chief executive Bill

Bayfield said after five years of

working with farmers to get water

meters installed, the time for

warning notices was over.

Prosecution would be used to

deal with major non-compliance

after checking data on the previous

season’s irrigation takes.

Any farmers who still didn’t

have a water meter in place by the

start of the next irrigation season,

starting from about mid-September,

would also be likely to face

prosecution. They could also have

consent to irrigate withdrawn.

There had not been enough

previous water metering prosecutions

to know what sort of penalties

the courts might impose but

the maximum possible fine was

$600,000.

Final countdown for SCIRT programme

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

retaining walls is now 92% complete and will finish in December.

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

underground pipe networks.

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

between Christchurch and Dunedin. These pipes are now invisibly doing

their important job below ground.

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

overall SCIRT bridge repair programme.

After SCIRT, The Christchurch City Council and NZ Transport Agency

will continue their programmes of ongoing repairs.

WINZ threats double after

Ashburton shooting

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THREATS AND assaults on

Work and Income staff in

Canterbury doubled after the

fatal shooting in Ashburton two

years ago.

There were 432 security

incidents reported in Canterbury

offices in the year from July 2014

to June last year, up from 212 the

year before.

At the Linwood office alone

there were almost 100 security

incidents, including 13 rated

serious and 11 where police had

to be involved.

Christchurch Work and

Income offices have been closed

or placed in lockdown at least

four times since the Ashburton

shooting, because of threats.

Ministry of Social Development

Canterbury regional commissioner

John Henderson said

extra security guards had been

put in place at all sites since the

shooting.

The ministry has always

taken threatening behaviour

seriously and since the tragedy

in Ashburton on September 1,

2014, we have implemented a

He said the ministry was

developing new layouts for the

There were 97 security incidents

Incidents are ranked critical if

Passers-by alert women

their house was on fire

• By Andrew King

TWO WOMEN had a lucky

escape from a huge blaze in

Woolston that engulfed a

two-bedroom flat and an old

ice-cream factory yesterday

morning.

Passers-by saw smoke coming

from the rear of the building

about 6am and realised people

were inside asleep, completely

unaware of the fire.

Fulton Hogan regional trainer

Glenn Williams was one of the

men who broke into the house

to raise the alarm, saving not

only two people, but their dog

and cats as well.

A spokeswoman for Fulton

Hogan said it was very proud of

the “extreme bravery” shown by

its employee.

The fire was so big it was easily

viewed from the Port Hills, one

person posted footage online

showing giant flames leaping

into the air.

Firefighters fought the blaze

both internally and externally as

crews worked to save the front

section of the building.

Senior station officer Mark

Elstone said the fire was going

“incredibly well” when they

arrived.

“We work very hard to save

the front part of the building

which was inhabited at the

time,” he said.

Next-door neighbour Betulina

Power said it was a “very scary”

thing to wake up to.

There was just a cloud of ash

raining down all around the

fire and there was a huge wall of

flames,” she said.

Another neighbour, John Te

Wani, said the only thought

when he saw the flames was to

get his family far away.

“I just chucked my keys to my

partner and said get the kids out

of here,” he said.

Fire investigator Mark

Thomas said it would take a day

or so to work out a cause.

“It has been a really big fire, it

will take a while to sift through

everything,” he said.

DECISION TIME: A hearing tomorrow will determine if the BP

Edgeware site will expand or not. ​

Decision looms over

BP expansion plans

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS fighting a petrol

station expansion in Edgeware

could find out their fate

tomorrow.

BP Oil New Zealand owns BP

Edgeware and has applied for a

resource consent to add another

four pumps and 12 more car

parks, which it has bought two

properties north of the site to accommodate

the expansion.

A city council resource consent

hearing will be held tomorrow to

hear both sides.

But residents are fuming at the

proposal saying they weren’t consulted

and it will ruin the area.

Resident Rob Hull said

the biggest problem with the

expansion is it is not the best use

of residential land.

“It is a big commercial

company that will be operating

365 days a year, 24 hours a day,”

he said.

BP Oil communications and

external affairs manager Shelley

Brady said the demand for service

in the area has increased and

improvements need to be made

to keep up with that demand and

make sure congestion does not

become a common thing.

She said they have followed the

city council approval process and

ultimately it’s their decision as to

what will and won’t be approved.

The hearing has been set for

9am tomorrow.

Square. The square’s Friday night

market now has 30 vendors on

the list, with up to 20 there on

Fridays.

Mr Pierce said mobile food

and coffee wasn’t really a thing

at that time, although he saw it

phasing out in the future.

There’s cafes springing up

everywhere now.”

Mr Pierce, who was a police

officer for 12 years, was working

with his daughter Rebekah at In

Italia on February 22 when the

earthquake struck.

They ran out of the building,

nearly being crushed by falling

masonry, before taking shelter in

the doorway of the cafe.

After they climbed out over

the rubble, the pair, along with

seven others, went on to help dig

earthquake survivor Margaret

Neale out from under the rubble

in City Mall.

Her daughter, Melissa, was

killed.

“We couldn’t get her,” Mr

Pierce said.

The group was later presented

with Christchurch Earthquake

Awards for their efforts.

Mr Pierce knows all his customers’

names and coffee orders.

“Some people probably don’t

even want the coffee, they just

want that contact at the start of

the day.”

He goes through up to 20kg a

week of coffee – or the “greatest

legal drug around” as he calls it.

But Mr Pierce is onto his

next project, with his new cafe

Espresso Depot expected to

open at the Riccarton Rd bus

lounge next week. Kiwicoffee

will continue to operate.

He never expected to be here

five years ago, but he enjoys it.

“That’s what I do. I like the

challenge of starting something

new.”

ERIC DEVOS also lost his

business. as well as the school he

was studying at, to the quakes.

That’s when he decided to start

Le Van Coffee – a mobile coffee

van.

The idea came up straight

after that. I thought, I’ve got to

do something, I’ve got kids and

need to support them.”

He bought a van with a

built in coffee machine from

Wellington, and it was so

successful, he later bought

another one, and hired another

barista.

“A coffee van was a great idea,

it’s not many hours a day and I’d

made coffee before.”

Before the earthquakes, Mr

Devos owned his own private

dining room, La Boheme, on

Colombo St, but the building

was damaged in the September

2010 earthquake.

He was studying to become a

wine tutor at the New Zealand

School of Food and Wine on

Victoria St, when the February

2011 earthquake hit.

The building was severely

damaged and the school moved

to Auckland.

Now Mr Devos has his usual

customers when he goes around

Tower Junction and Show Pl.

“I see the same people

everyday. I know their name and

I know what they drink.”

He goes through 15kg of coffee

a week.

“It’s just a great job. It’s a

positive environment, I bring

coffee to people so they are

always happy to see me.”

But come November, Mr

Devos will be running the cafe

at the newly repaired Sign of the

Kiwi building.

He’s not sure whether he will

continue running the coffee

vans.

“It’s great because it’s a new

project. I’ve got the focus of a

four-year-old boy you see. I’ve

been doing coffee for five years.”

CHARLOTTE BELL started

her delivery salad and sandwich

business, Bell & Co, in April

because she thought there was a

lack of healthy lunch options.

The 24-year-old studied

microbiology and environmental

science at the University of

Otago, which is where she

learned about food production

and the environment.

“I’ve noticed people were often

too busy to either make lunch

or travel to buy a healthy lunch,”

she said.

“People often compromised

quality for convenience. I just

wanted to provide accessible,

affordable food.”

Her food catered for everyone,

with each option being

easily converted for vegans,

vegetarians and people with

allergies.

Her weekly menu consists of a

salad and sandwich option, and

she caters breakfast and lunch

events.

“It’s about making healthy

eating easy.”

Migrants

targeted by

scammers

• By Andrew King

SCAMMERS ARE targeting

migrants with fake calls claiming to

be from Government agencies.

Since June Immigration New

Zealand has received 305 complaints

nationwide including Christchurch

from people contacted by a scammer.

Police have also received a number

of complaints.

Immigration NZ area manager

Darren Calder said the calls involve

the fraudsters trying to deceive people

into parting with a payment to

avoid deportation or arrest.

“We are still assessing the extent

of the problem, but the scam appears

to target a variety of nationalities,

including Indian and Fijian nationals,”

he said.

A police spokewoman said the

scam has been happening as recently

as a month ago with callers said to be

“very rude and aggressive”.

“Members of the public should be

aware that New Zealand Government

agencies such as Immigration

or Inland Revenue will never call,

email or text demanding payment or

threatening deportation.”

Pet cats poisoned

• By Gabrielle Stuart

JULIE ABBOTT has no idea

why anyone would want to

poison her pets.

When her young children

went to let the cats out of their

enclosure in the garage and

found them having violent

seizures, she thought they must

be sick.

She rushed them to the vet,

but too late.

Two of her four cats died,

one on the operating table.

The third was left blind with

possible brain damage, and the

fourth very sick.

A post-mortem later found

they had been poisoned, and

the symptoms looked like it was

1080 poisoning.

Ms Abbott is a small-time

breeder of Ragdoll cats, and said

her cats were part of the family.

She had no idea why someone

would want to poison them.

“I’ve had no issues with my

neighbours and I’ve never been

broken into. If someone had an

issue with me, why not put a

letter in my mail box, don’t hurt

my animals.”

To get to the cats, she said

someone would have had to

come into her property and

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

through a side-door into her

garage, where they were kept in

their enclosure overnight.

She said there was no sign of a

break-in, but her children used

the garage as a playroom and

sometimes forgot to lock the

door.

She reported it to the police,

but with no signs of a break-in

and no-one she suspected, there

was not much they could do,

she said.

She said her family of four

guinea pigs had died suddenly

recently, but she had believed

something must have frightened

them.

She now wondered if they

were poisoned, too.

Pathology testing is still being

done to try to find out what was

used to poison the cats.

Ms Abbott said the bill from

the vet and the autopsy came

close to $6000, which she was

struggling to pay as a single

mother and part-time worker.

She had set up a Givealittle page

to ask for help with the bill.

At The Vets clinic

veterinarian Heather Remnant

said cases of intentional

poisoning were rare, but she

had come across several in

or one of their mobile vans can do up to

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them

for you.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on.

In fact, all their staff has been on board

for at least 8 years, and many up to 20

years. Whatever the job involves, they

will work hard to make sure it gets done,

including one job of 800 blinds which

they completed in 4 days.

RECOVERING: Julie Abbott with her cat Gracie, who has been

left blind after being poisoned, possibly with 1080.

She said one client had their

dog poisoned.

“Once they got a new dog

they got a note in their letterbox

saying ‘I see you have a new

dog, this one better not bark

like the last one’,” she said.

She said the autopsies were

very reliable at pointing to the

cause of death, but it was much

more difficult to pinpoint which

poison was used as they had to

be tested one by one.

Mayor’s Welfare Fund picks

up tab for state tenants

Hoax call frustrates

emergency services

• By Bridget Rutherford

EMERGENCY services are

frustrated they responded to

a motor-vehicle crash, which

turned out to be a hoax call.

Fire crews, St John, police and

the Westpac Rescue Helicopter

were all dispatched to Charteris

Bay on Tuesday at about 2pm to

what they thought was a car that

had hit a tree.

But when they got there, they

could not find any crash.

Fire communications shift

manager Lyn Crosson said it

was “really annoying” and a “big

waste of resources”.

She said emergency services

searched for about 15min and

tried to phone the number that

rang in, but could not get through.

Westpac Rescue Helicopter

spokesman Rick Knight said

the crew searched the road from

the air, before flying over Orton

Bradley Park to see if anything

was there.

He said luckily, the helicopter

was already in the air at the time,

but if another genuine call came

in at the same time it would have

slowed their response.

Mr Knight said police managed

to track the number the call came

from, and went to the house but

no one was home.

“At the end of the day nobody

was hurt which was good.”

Mr Knight said the crew was

in the air because it flew to Mt

Hutt Ski Area to pick up two men

in their 60s – one with a broken

lower leg, and the other with a

fractured arm.

They also flew to Porters Ski

Area, where a child had suffered

abdominal injuries after being hit

with the T-bar.

• By Shelley Robinson

THE CITY council has met

with Housing New Zealand

over concerns it was regularly

“picking up the tab” for

overdue rent for state tenants

who were under the threat of

eviction.

On most occasions, the city

council paid the bill because

children, some with disabilities,

were involved.

Payments for state housing

rent arrears via the Mayor’s

Welfare Fund, increased 700

per cent over three years, from

$2673 in 2013 to $21,867 in

2015/2016 financial year.

City councillor and housing

task-force chairman Glenn

Livingstone has hit out at

Housing New Zealand and the

Ministry of Social Development

saying they lacked “compassion”

and were “unreasonable” in

their dealings with those facing

eviction due to rent arrears.

The city council is picking up

the tab for Housing NZ. People

come and see us because they

are under threat of eviction, and

it happens fairly regularly – it

has been a source of frustration

for staff in those areas,” he said.

They [Housing NZ and

MSD] need to step up and

become a landlord . . . and

treat its people like subjects not

objects,” he said.

But deputy mayor and welfare

fund chairwoman, Vicki Buck

said MSD and Housing NZ have

now stepped up, after she met

with them recently to resolve

the issue.

“This was about ensuring

everyone in Christchurch has

a home and we have invited

them [Housing NZ] to go on the

welfare fund committee,” she

said.

A Housing NZ spokesman

said it was “proactive work”

with MSD to identify clients’

rent arrears early, to get them

assistance.

“Housing NZ has been invited

to join the welfare fund committee

so we are around that

table and can address issues and

concerns directly and quickly,”

he said.

A MSD spokesman said in the

2012/2013 financial year it paid

$2.8 million in Canterbury for

accommodation-related hardship

grants.

State rent arrears only

represents a mere 10 per cent of

the $290,000 paid by the welfare

fund over three years for those

struggling with housing costs.

Of the $1 million paid out

by the welfare fund since the

2012/2013 financial year, 31 per

cent was for electricity costs, 28

per cent on rent arrears and 13

per cent on bonds.

About 3300 grants were made.

The welfare fund paid out

about $899,000 from 2010 to

2012.

The fund is boosted by about

$342,305 from city councillors’

directors’ fees. City councillor

David East has not paid his

director’s fee to the fund, while

Cr Ali Jones has paid half.

More people seeking

new jobs in Canterbury

• By Bridget Rutherford

IF YOU are looking for a new job

you are not the only one – nearly

half of Cantabrians are in the

same boat.

The latest Hudson Report

released on Monday showed that

46 per cent of Cantabrians were

actively seeking new jobs.

That was the highest out of the

areas surveyed in the

report.

Thirty-two per

cent were passively

looking for new jobs,

which meant if they

were approached and

offered a new job, they would

consider it.

Twenty-two per cent of Cantabrians

were happy to stay in their

current job.

The report was based on the

upper North Island, lower North

Island and Canterbury.

It found, overall, three out

of four New Zealanders were

actively looking for new jobs,

which was up more than 20 per

cent in six months.

Hudson New Zealand regional

general manager Roman Rogers

(above) said Canterbury was

leading the charge for shifting of

employers.

“Cantabrians are more active

than their countrymen when it

comes to change,” he said.

“Close to 50 per cent of

Cantabrians are actively looking

for new jobs.”

He said it was now a lot easier

for companies and recruitment

agencies to tempt the passive

market with social media such as

LinkedIn.

They were able to find people,

and see what sort of experience

they had online, he said.

“People are so much easier to

find.”

Mr Rogers said boredom was

a key driver for people to seek

another role, as well as creative

opportunities.

Enterprise Recruitment and

People chief operating officer Ian

McPherson said it was difficult

to distinguish between people

actively looking and passively

looking.

People may sign up with

LinkedIn or register for Seek, but

that did not necessarily mean

they were looking for jobs at the

time, he said.

In Canterbury, trades, construction

and IT were areas where

people were wanting jobs, he said.

The report said in the upper

North Island, 39 per cent of people

were actively seeking new jobs,

with 32 per cent thinking about it.

The lower North Island also

saw 29 per cent looking, while

40 per cent could be tempted to

change.

CERA spent $18k on

recruitment in final year

• By Shelley Robinson

IN ITS final year of operation

the Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority spent

$18,000 on recruiting staff

members.

This is part of a nearly

Information Act.

CERA was disestablished in

Department of the Prime

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | JULY 2016

February 2016

earthquake

response

With each natural disaster, EQC has increasingly listened

to customer feedback to improve how it works, says

EQC February 2016 Event Manager, Jayne Lapin.

“For the February 2016 earthquakes we are emailing a

survey to customers to complete two weeks after their claim

resolution to gauge potential areas for improvement.

To date, most customers have said their experience of the

new EQC process was positive or very positive,” she said.

EQC has taken a different approach to finalising the 13,985

claims lodged by customers following the Canterbury

earthquakes of 14 and 29 February, 2016, and the

aftershocks through March and June. To date EQC has paid

over $7.8 million to customers for damage claims.

EQC is reverting back to cash settlements as there is no

managed repair programme. EQC aims to complete

assessments for these events sooner, where possible,

using a claims management approach that EQC customers

helped design. EQC aims to resolve all claims for these

2016 Christchurch events by the end of December.

“One way to achieve this is by phoning customers to get all

the relevant information up front, before conducting

assessment. For many claims, damage assessment is done

over the phone. At its heart is the drive to make EQC easier

to do business with,” Miss Lapin says.

This differed from the 2010/2011 Canterbury claims, largely

because earthquake damage incurred in 2016 quakes was

minor. Customer payments are averaging $1,000 to $5,000

per claim. Only two claims were up to $50,000, and no

claims to date have gone over the EQC cap.

Seismic monitoring on Mt Ruapehu

Marking

GeoNet’s 15th

birthday

A message from Dr Hugh Cowan,

General Manager Reinsurance,

Research and Education

This month, GeoNet is celebrating its

15th anniversary. Most Cantabrians will be

familiar with the GeoNet app which provides

instant information about quakes and

volcanic activity.

GeoNet uses a network of over 600 sensors

across New Zealand to detect, analyse and

respond to earthquakes, volcanic activity

and other geological hazards. It was

established in 2001 as a collaboration

between EQC as investor and GNS as

technical manager.

Over the years, GeoNet has been recognised

internationally as at the leading edge of

natural hazards monitoring, which is a

significant bonus for New Zealand given the

dynamic nature of our region.

Canterbury’s proximity to the Alpine Fault

means that it has a large number of sensors.

The start of the Canterbury earthquake

sequence triggered further expansion of this

network, ultimately making the February

2011 earthquake one of the most

comprehensively recorded earthquakes in

urban history.

The quantity of GeoNet data has delivered

significant benefits for Canterbury, not least

in enabling decisions relating to building

reconstruction, engineering, the behaviour

of the land, and reinsurance to be informed

by science.

Such a wide range of applications in

Canterbury exemplifies the benefits of EQC’s

investment which requires GeoNet to make its

data publicly and freely available. GeoNet’s

growing and diverse community of users

extends well beyond EQC and GNS. Land

surveyors, airline pilots, power and water

companies and local government all use

GeoNet data in different ways.

EQC is proud to have maintained such a

long-term and successful partnership with

GNS, providing GeoNet with around $12m

a year. Late last year, we committed funding

through to 2021 as part of our research and

education programme.

EQC awarded

costs from

Action Group

The Earthquake Commission welcomes

the High Court’s recent costs decision

which orders the EQC Action Group to pay

costs of $4,237 to EQC.

The costs decision was issued following the

discontinuation of the Action Group’s

declaratory judgment application. The Action

Group sought a series of declarations in

Cantabrians Ball raises

money for sick kids

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WHEN 12-year-old Grace

spent two weeks in the United

States, the thing that left her

dumbstruck wasn’t Disneyland,

the zoo or even the “tower of

terror” roller coaster.

It was stepping into the lobby

of her hotel with its shiny black

couches and big vases of flowers,

and then into her own room upstairs

that took her breath away.

“Bright white walls and double

beds, a desk and a private

bathroom, which is pretty cool

considering there are six kids in

our family and one bathroom,”

she said.

She was one of 24 children with

serious medical conditions who

were sponsored by Koru Care to

go on a two-week trip of a lifetime

to the US three years ago.

The charity aims to give

children fun experiences which

empower them, develop their

social and life skills and allow

them to “enjoy themselves as

children should”.

It is currently raising money

to send another 24 children on a

similar trip later this year.

Grace said learning she had

been chosen for the trip had

been totally overwhelming, and

she was so excited leading up to

it she struggled to concentrate

on school.

“Instead of doing maths I doodled

pictures of roller coasters,”

she said.

About $4000 is needed to send

each child on the trip, which is

raised through a series of fundraisers

throughout the year.

Koru Care Christchurch has

reinvented its annual charity

auction this year as “The Cantabrians

Ball”, a black tie dinner,

About $120,000 is expected

Smoking ban to be

back at Hillmorton

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AN OVERTURNED ban on

smoking at Hillmorton Hospital

which was linked to a former

patient’s suicide is set to be

reintroduced.

Smoking is currently allowed

in the inpatient unit courtyards,

but it is set to be banned everywhere

on the grounds from

January.

Smoking was first banned at

the hospital in 2010, but it was

overturned after protests from

patients.

A former patient’s suicide was

linked to the ban, as his mother

said he stopped self-referring

himself for treatment there

because he wasn’t allowed to

smoke.

Canterbury University sociology

professor Anne Scott said

patients in mental health treatment

were already under stress,

and a ban would make it worse.

She agreed helping patients to

quit would be a good thing, but

said a ban was the wrong way to

do it.

“If people are in hospital

they’re not able to leave if they’re

under the mental health act, so to

try to make them quit that way is

not the right way to go about it.”

Canterbury District Health

Board specialist mental health

director of nursing Stu Bigwood

said smoking was already

banned at all other health board

sites.

He said the patients would

be supported with free nicotine

replacement therapy.

“Mental health consumers already

have poorer physical health

outcomes compared to general

population and as a health provider

we are responsible for the

promotion of a healthy environment

for consumers, staff, and

visitors.”

An appeal against a smoking

ban at the Waitemata District

Health Board psychiatric units

was taken to the High Court and

the Court of Appeal, but it was

dismissed in May.

EDITORIAL

Getting it

wrong over

baby safety

THE DECISION by the

Ministry of Health not to fund

pepi-pods doesn’t seem right.

Arguing that the worth of the

pods in saving babies has not

been proven, it shelved plans to

supply the pods – or wahakura

– to the most at-risk babies in

New Zealand.

And Health Minister Jonathan

Coleman has agreed with

the decision, saying the evidence

that the pods helped save

infants doesn’t stack up.

That seems contrary to the

view of Auckland University

professor of child health research

Ed Mitchell.

An Auckland University

study has assessed the Safe

Sleep programme which had

been running in parts of the

country since 2009. It includes

the use of pepi-pods.

“We are quite convinced that

they are actually saving lives,”

Professor Mitchell said.

The mortality rate has come

down and it can be attributed to

the Safe Sleep programme and

the wahakura or pepi-pod.”

HURRY

LIMITED STOCK!

The pepi-pods are a reasonably

cheap, simple and

culturally aware answer to

some of the

issues around keeping babies

safe and close to their parents.

And evidence seems to

suggest the New Zealand developed

pepi-pod is a lifesaver

beyond this country.

An Australian who has

worked in the area of sudden

infant death for 25 years,

professor Jeanine Young, of

the Sunshine Coast University,

now helps give pepi-pods to

at-risk Aboriginal families in

Queensland.

Though it will be several

years before the expected drop

in infant mortality in Australia,

she said the four years of data

showing a reduced infant mortality

was enough for her.

Funding for continued use of

the pod in New Zealand should

be a no-brainer.

It’s difficult to disagree with

the experts . . . unless, of course,

you are the Ministry of Health.

it is so unhealthy is common

Restoration of Victoria

AFTER SOME initial

consternation over early plans

for the re-development of

Victoria Square two years ago,

I’m very pleased everyone’s

views have been considered

and Christchurch residents can

now see how the square will be

restored.

Last week Otakaro Ltd

released the developed design,

which draws heavily on what

the community said it wanted –

largely the old square brought up

to modern standards.

The restoration plan retains

Victoria Square’s much-loved

park-like character and heritage

more people don’t use it.

I think $12 million is the right

start but how long will it take to

make it like it was?

They say decades and that’s a

really long time. The place needs

to be fixed now.

Phillip Marcs, of Prebbleton –

The money for cleaning the lake

is not nearly enough. I haven’t

lived in Selwyn for very long,

only several years, and I am told

that it was once a beautiful place

that was clean and full of life.

The lake is one of the biggest

in New Zealand, $12 million is

monuments, the Queen Victoria

and Captain Cook statues and

the floral clock. The illuminated

Bowker Fountain will also be

restored.

The site’s significance to Ngāi

Tahu will be recognised through

a new artwork which will pay

tribute to Ngāi Tahu Treaty of

CLEARANCE LINES!

clearly not going to be enough

to get it back to what it once

was. I would love to take my

family there and be able to use

it for recreational use. It needs a

serious look at and for someone

to actually make the health of the

lake a priority.

It’s a real shame to see something

that like this go to waste. How

much beneficial work can be

done over decades? Will it even be

noticeable? It needs a serious cash

injection and proper work needs to

be done quicker than ‘decades’.

I don’t want to see it deteriorate

further and become worse.

More opportunities

for young Kiwis

NEW ZEALAND is a fantastic

place to grow up. Between

our peaceful society, our great

education system, our beautiful

natural environment and our

unique culture, young people in

New Zealand are pretty lucky.

There’s one area though where

our young people are struggling

and that’s getting in to work or

education. Right now, we have

about 87,200 young people in

New Zealand who aren’t in work,

education or training.

That many young people sitting

aimlessly with no plans and

no hope for the future is a ticking

time bomb. It’s an enormous

waste of potential. It robs those

young people of opportunity

and dents their chances for the

future. We’ve got to do better.

A big part of this problem is

the pipeline out of high school

into work or further education

isn’t working as well as it should.

In New Zealand, we have one of

the lowest rates of student retention

in the developed world. If

we want to give our kids the best

shot at a great life, we’ve got to

turn that around.

That’s why I was so happy

when Labour leader Andrew

Little this week announced a

plan to get every young person in

New Zealand either earning or

learning.

It starts by fixing our problems

with retaining students into the

workforce or future education.

Mr Little announced $30 million

to transform the way career

guidance works in our high

schools.

Under Labour, every school

will have a professional, dedicated

careers adviser who can work

one on one with every young

person to develop a personalised

plan for the first steps of their

careers. This wouldn’t just be one

conversation when they leave

school, they’d work with them

right from year 9 and help guide

them into fields and experiences

they are interested in.

This would mean working

closer with awesome programmes

like Gateway – which

lets high school students spend

two days a week getting real

world experience. It’s about

recognising that different people

learn in different ways.

We’ve also announced our

Dole for Apprenticeships scheme,

which would see employers paid

the equivalent of the dole to take

on an apprentice who might be

light on experience but heavy on

potential. It’s a much better use

of that money than paying our

young people to waste their talents

by not working or studying.

Taken together, this plan is

going to give young Kiwis more

opportunity than ever to make

the most of their potential.

Canterbury spokeswoman

The Crusaders’ 42-25 loss to the Lions in Sunday’s Super Rugby

semi-final brought down the curtain on Todd Blackadder’s time

as coach. With the team having failed to capture a title in his

eight seasons in charge, The Star asked people whether they

thought he had done a good job.

Steve Gibling, of

Tai Tapu, Metro

Sports Facility

manager: “I think

he has done a good

job. It’s a really tight

competition here in

New Zealand and

he is an All Blacks

and Canterbury

legend so I am a bit

of a fan. He has had

some interesting

player issues to deal

with and I guess it

puts it in context

of how awesome

the Crusaders were

back in 2007 when

they last won the

title.”

John Semau,

student: “I think

he has done a great

job but it has just

come to the time

when they need

something different.

Canterbury need

a new coach and

basically I think

there just needs to

be a bit of a change

because eight

seasons is a long

time. They haven’t

won a title in the

last few seasons so

it’s probably best

they find someone

new to take over.”

Rose Riley, of

Papanui, retired:

“Pretty much, yes

[he has done a

good job]. I think

sometimes the

coaches are not

given a fair go. As

far as the Crusaders

go – was he given

long enough? Yes,

but I just think they

are not playing as

well as they could at

the moment.”

Terence Logan, of

Woolston, retired:

“He’s a good coach.

You can’t always

blame the coach

when the players

are the ones on the

field. Players can

play their game

but the coach can

only coach. I think

they’ve been a good

team and Todd

Blackadder has

done a good job.”

Marcus Sinclair, of

St Albans, painter:

“I don’t think [that

he has been a good

coach] and I think

he cannot change

tactics when he has

the half time lead

– that’s one of his

problems.”

Bruce Skinner, of

Upper Riccarton,

quality assurance

officer: “I think

he has done

remarkably well. He

is a popular coach

and the team seem

to respect him.”

Neil Lewer, of

“He’s done very

good. I wouldn’t

think [that the lack

of titles is an issue].”

Jean Lorenz, of

“I don’t know why

he is retiring. I

think he has been

a really good coach

right through.”

Phil Rasmussen,

founder of herbal

extracts company

KiwiHerb and

a registered

herbal medicine

practitioner,

responds to an

article in The Star

last month

INFORMED debate about the

Natural Health Products Bill

(until recently called the Natural

Health and Supplementary

Products Bill) is needed because

ongoing scaremongering and

misinformation about it could

ultimately put consumers at

risk.

I am frustrated at a small

group of very vocal detractors

who will stop at nothing to

derail the Bill.

Emotions are running high in

some quarters but let’s sort fact

from fiction when considering

what the Bill means for consumers

and the natural health

products industry.

It will regulate natural health

products sold and marketed

directly to consumers but will

not apply to products that are

prescribed or directly made

available through trained health

practitioners or traditional

medicine practitioners.

People could be forgiven for

worrying about the doom and

gloom claims being

bandied around,

including assertions

that most natural

health products will

disappear from shelves,

costs will skyrocket

and businesses will go

under.

Such claims are

simply not true. Nor is it true

the Bill will severely restrict

the ingredients as well as doses

allowed in natural health

products.

Just because someone is

shouting loudly about something

doesn’t mean they were

right and nor does it mean that

they represent the majority view.

The vast majority of natural

health product manufacturers

– from very large companies

to small manufacturers –

support this legislation because

we believe it will be good for

business, good for consumers,

good for the natural health

industry, and therefore good for

the economy.

Bill, visit: http://www.naturalproducts.nz/natural-healthproducts-bill-faq/

Continuing proud history

Shirley Boys’

High School

principal John

Laurenson

talks about the

co-location

of Shirley and

Avonside Girls’

High School to the vacant

QE II Park.

TO SAY now is an exciting time

for Shirley Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ High Schools is an

understatement.

We now have confirmation

that our new schools will be built

at QE II. As many people in Canterbury

know, to have certainty

over your future after many

years of waiting is a wonderful

feeling.

But what is even better is

knowing that we have an opportunity

to create something

incredibly special and unique for

the city’s eastern residents.

This will be the first time

in New Zealand’s history that

two single sex schools will be

co-located. It’s a completely

new approach that is prompting

many questions from our communities.

Are the schools merging? Is

this a co-educational school? Are

they going to be called Shirley

and Avonside when they won’t

be in Shirley or Avonside? What

will the zone be?

The new campus will cost at

least $80 million and open in

time for the 2019 school year.

There is still a lot of work to take

place but already there are many

questions we can answer.

No – the schools are not merging,

there will be one campus but

two separate schools.

This is not a co-educational

school. The schools will continue

delivering quality single sex

education. That is really important

to us – single sex education

benefits both boys and girls.

What will be different is that

while our students will spend

most of their day in a single sex

environment, they will also have

opportunities to learn alongside

and interact with students from

our partner school. That brings

both social and educational

advantages. It is the best of both

worlds.

As for the names – yes, we

will still be Avonside Girls’ and

Shirley Boys’. Why? Because

we are two of Christchurch’s

oldest schools, our histories are

proud and we want to continue

our legacies. We may tweak the

names slightly to reflect our new

location – you’re welcome to give

us your thoughts on that.

In fact, you’re welcome to give

• By Bridget Rutherford

BUSINESSES displaced after

the earthquakes now have

another five years before they

need to move back into business

districts.

Special legislation

was developed

by Parliament in

2011 to enable displaced

businesses

to temporarily

relocate following

the February 2011 earthquake.

This meant they could operate

in places that otherwise would

not have complied with the city

and district plans, which could

include residential areas.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said that

legislation was due to expire

in April, but is has now been

extended to 2021 as part of the

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Bill.

He said businesses could

remain until that date unless an

earlier date was specified in the

approval.

But city councillor Jamie

Gough said the move was one

of the “single worst decisions”

that could be made to impair the

city’s rebuild.

He said it was a “tenant’s

dream”, with an over-supply of

central city office space.

“It’s a chicken and egg scenario

to a certain extent because how

do we expect the rebuild to

progress at pace and for the city

to become vibrant when the imperative

to actually move back in

keeps being pushed back?”

GOING FOR IT: Tiffany Chittenden hopes to represent New Zealand

again at the Karting World Championships in October.

Tiffany Chittenden is one of the world’s best female kart drivers, and is training to

represent New Zealand in October’s world championships. Bridget Rutherford spoke to

her about racing the men on the track, giving British rapper Tinie Tempah driving tips,

and growing up with the sport

Can you tell me when and how

you got into karting?

So, basically I was 12 and my

dad used to race cars and so did

my mum. Mum’s family was

involved in formula 1, so it’s in

the blood. My brother and sister

drove karts as well. My brother

did it for two years and I wasn’t

really interested, but there was

a family day, it was a family

race and I just had a go in my

brother’s kart and happened to

win and I thought: ‘This isn’t so

bad after all’.

Can you fill me in on your

parents’ racing careers?

Dad used to race before I was

born and when I was growing

up. We lived in England but I

went with him racing in Europe

so I grew up on the tracks. And

mum in the 1960s was part of

the Vanwall Team. They were

quite successful. Stirling Moss

was in the team and was the

world champion. So they’ve got

a big history in racing.

What have been some of

your career highlights?

I won some junior championships,

but I won the British

championship in 2007. Then

from winning that I got to go to

the world finals, so every year

there is a big race where everyone

that’s won their national

series, races against each other.

It’s kind of like the Olympics of

kart racing. I got to represent

Britain for that, then in 2014, I

got to represent New Zealand.

I was sixth at the world finals,

and that’s against the guys. My

goal is to qualify again this year

at the world finals in October in

Italy. In November, I’m hoping

to compete in a kart race in Las

Vegas.

What does racing training

involve?

So there’s a track at Carrs Rd,

that’s our local and we test there

as much as we can. I take part in

the New Zealand champs and

that’s eight rounds throughout

the year all in the North Island.

You have to keep really fit which

a lot of people don’t realise.

A lot of people get out of the

car and they can hardly move

their arms. It’s also quite tough

on your core and ribs as well.

We don’t just sit on our bums

(laughs).

What brought you to

Christchurch and when?

I moved here in 2014. My

partner’s a Kiwi racer, Matthew

Hamilton; we met at the world

finals. I came here for a holiday

and liked it.

Do you think you’d both get

pretty competitive if you raced

against one another?

It would be a bit of fun.

We’d both want to win so we

definitely wouldn’t take it easy.

And you’re on the

Christchurch Kart Club

Committee now aren’t you?

Yes, I’m kind of new to the

committee. The track is hoping

to relocate so that’s been a bit

of a driving force. We’re there

every weekend anyway, it’s our

lives.

Tiffany Chittenden

for speed in karts and race cars

Do you race cars as well?

Yes, I’ve raced cars as well

as karts. Basically the natural

progression is car racing, but

it costs a lot. In the United

Kingdom I managed to race with

Aston Martin. Over here I started

off in karting then got a sponsor

for the Toyota 86 series and that

was Lighting Plus. I enjoy both.

I’m on a big push at the moment

to try and find sponsorship to go

to the world finals and also race

in Las Vegas. It’s a full-time job.

Can you tell me a bit about

your driving coaching?

So I help Matt, and we just

coach kids from age six to adults.

They all make the same mistakes

whether they are six or 60.

What sort of mistakes do

most make?

Just driving lines, or while

they are racing, the biggest thing

is that they look behind them

instead of forward. In the UK

my main job was working for

AMG as a driving specialist.

Now I work for Downforce New

Zealand for a lot of different

manufacturers. It’s just for

everyone, from someone who

has bought an Audi and wants

to know how to use it, to people

who want to drive fast.

Have you taught any notable

people?

In the UK I taught quite a few

singers, like Tinie Tempah, and

Professor Green.

How was Tinie’s driving?

I thought he might be a bit

scary because he is a rapper, but

he was really chilled. A lot of

famous people don’t get to drive

much because they get driven

everywhere. But I had to keep

pushing him along to go faster!

Normally the women do well

because they listen, some guys

don’t like being told what to do

by me because I’m a girl.

Speaking of that, have you got

that a lot while you’ve been on

the racing scene?

Definitely, we are the minority.

I think when I was at the world

finals I was really the only female,

or the only female to make the

finals. Guys don’t like it. I think

you earn respect. I don’t like

playing on the whole female

thing, if there was an only female

championships I wouldn’t do it,

I’m just not interested. The kart

doesn’t know who’s driving it.

Do men find it surprising?

When I raced in America a lot

of people were surprised. People

don’t expect you to be fast. They

are all very nice, until you’re fast.

Then they’ll stop talking to you.

Would you ever like to race in

formula 1?

ACHIEVEMENT: Chittenden was the first female to win the

British National Karting Championships and has raced in New

Zealand’s Toyota 86 series.

I’m too old now for formula

1. If you’re not 20 anymore it’s

very hard. I don’t have the money

backing behind me. I’d still love

to do 24 hours of Le Mans. I

think that’s more achievable. My

goal is to win the world champs

in the karting then hopefully

win the Toyota 86 Championship

next year.

What’s your everyday car?

A Mini actually, which is sort of

like a kart. I get to let steam out

on the race track, this is just a fun

car to drive.

Easy to park as well!

Well, I’m not great at

parking, we don’t have to park

(laughs).

Are you seeing more young

female drivers start the sport?

Definitely, I have a couple of girl

drivers I’m helping out at the

moment. New Zealand has a lot

more females than the UK, I’m

not sure why.

What’s your favourite race

track?

I really like Ruapuna. And

there’s a kart track in Belgium

called Genk. I had one of my best

races there.

What’s the fastest you’ve ever

driven?

Probably about 290km/h, but

that was in a straight line. In a

kart you would easily get up to

120km/h, but it’s close to the

ground so it feels a lot faster than

that.

A child who’s ‘a little different’

We all know children who are just ‘a little

different’ – perhaps they’re clumsy, have

difficulty writing and tying shoelaces. Some

are prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to

fit in. This could be a sensory processing

problem.

We need to process environmental

information through our senses to interpret

the world around us and to function well in

everyday life.

For some children, their nervous system may

be receiving, sorting and using information

inaccurately from the environment, causing

them to either under or over react to a

sensation, or to actively seek or avoid a

sensation.

This can lead to a lot of distress for the child,

family and teachers, as coping with everyday

experiences like a noisy classroom, the feel

of a fabric, or moving in a coordinated way

may present huge challenges. It can influence

behaviour and interferes with learning, doing

everyday activities or simply fitting in.

Often these behaviours are mistaken for the

child being “naughty” or poor parenting. To

confuse matters more, no child is the same.

Each has their individual set of difficulties.

Therapy Professionals experienced

Occupational Therapists may be able to help

improve the lives of these children and those

around them. Just contact us at 377 5280 or

visit www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

Is a child you

know struggling

to relate or

learn?

Don’t struggle alone.

Our therapists can help.

They come to you.

Gardening

Time to dethatch your lawn

EARLY AUGUST is the time

to attack the thatch on your

lawns.

Thatch is caused by several

factors, including grass

type, excessive watering, soil

compaction, high or low soil

pH,or overuse of fertiliser and

pesticides.

Remove a core of soil from

the lawn with a trowel or

shovel and measure the depth

of the thatch, which is the

layer of dead grass above the

soil line.

A layer that’s 1cm to 2.5cm

thick can be removed with a

stiff lawn rake. Deeper layers

may require a power rake.

The best time to de-thatch is

just before the grass begins a

period of active growth, which

is usually early spring.

For lawns with more than

an 3cm of thatch, power rakes

or vertical mowers will need

to be used and can be hired.

Mow the lawn a little lower

than usual. If needed, water it

to moisten the soil.

If you use a thatching rake,

pull the blade-like tines across

the lawn, cutting through the

thatch. Work in sections, then

remove the debris.

If you re using a power rake

or vertical mower, adjust the

cutters to slice just through

the thatch layer. Check cutter

depth after the first metre.

Run the machine in parallel

rows over the lawn and then

again at 90 deg to the first

pass. Remove debris with a

lawn rake.

Over-seed with a goodquality

grass seed to improve

the lawn’s health, vigour, and

appearance.

Other tips for early August

EDIBLES

• Dig over vacant areas and

leave for frosts to pulverise the

lumps.

• Apply lime to vegetable garden

plots where green crops

were dug to increase worm

activity.

• Spread a general fertiliser

on areas to be planted next

month.

• Check peach, apricot and

nectarine buds frequently.

Spray with copper before bud

burst to protect against curly

leaf. Same spray for bladder

plum.

• In warm areas begin sowing

in a protected position lettuces,

peas, silver beet and spinach.

• Sow outdoors hardy herbs,

tender herbs under glass.

• In warm areas or towards the

end of the month sow under

glass courgettes, eggplants,

peppers and tomatoes.

• Plant out asparagus, globe

artichokes, cabbage, cauliflower,

lettuce, onions and silver

beet.

• Divide and replant rhubarb.

• Fertilise citrus generously

towards the end of the month.

ORNAMENTAL

• Plant deciduous trees, shrubs.

• Complete pruning of roses

and cutting back of all perennials.

• Complete mulching garden

beds.

GENERAL

• Slugs and snails abound,

spread slug bait

• Ensure all-seasons oil and

copper sprays have been

applied to all fruit trees and

roses.

HEALTHY: Produce the

perfect lawn, dethatch it

in early August.

GARDEN CLUBS

Join a garden club! I wish I’d done this 30 years ago. It would have saved me a lot of

time, effort and money! Garden club members cross many age ranges, they all garden

in different circumstances, and they have specialist knowledge about their own areas of

gardening interest.

ALSTROMERIA

I wish I had learnt earlier that you should pick alstromeria from the base of the plants.

It would have saved me having to cut off the dead stalks later.

WEED MATTING

I thought all weed matting was beneficial but it’s not. The thick, canvas type starves the

soil of nutrients and air. My next project is to remove a large area of this in order to

develop a soil medium in which plants will grow and thrive.

Alstromeria

Alstromeria flowers bloom during late

spring or early summer and prefer

full sun and well-drained soils. When

planting, incorporate compost and wellrotted

animal manure into the soil. Old

flower stems should be snipped off at the

base. In early spring, mulch around, but

not over, the plants.

Note: not all alstromeria are created equal.

In fact, some are considered pest plants.

Always source your plants from a reputable

supplier.

INVASIVE!

Never plant horseradish – ever! Just buy it in those little

pots from the supermarket. And think twice before

propagating something found growing in the wild – it is

likely to take over your garden.

WHOOPS!

Ask a more experienced gardener before you try growing

freesias from a cutting!

THE CANTERBURY Horticultural

Society has joined with Ferrymead

Heritage Park to present a free heritage

rose pruning demonstration.

Taking place on-site in the Addington

Workshop Memorial Garden,

located inside Ferrymead, it will cover

the basics of pruning these unique

blooms.

A heritage rose, also known as an old

garden rose, is defined as any rose belonging

to a class which existed before

the introduction of the first modern

rose, La France, in 1867.

In general, heritage roses of European

or Mediterranean origin are

once-blooming woody shrubs, with

notably fragrant, double-flowered

blooms primarily in shades of white,

pink and crimson-red. The shrubs’ foliage

tends to be highly disease-resistant,

and they generally bloom only from

canes (stems) which formed in previous

years.

This will be a free event, no need to

register, just turn up with your secateurs.

Horseradish

Horseradish is an easy-to-grow,

deeply rooted herb, well noted

for its tendency to become

invasive. When dug, its crisp

taproot breaks and any fragment

left in the soil soon develops

into an individual plant. Grow

horseradish in its own individual

container and stand the pot on

an inorganic surface, such as

concrete, so the roots do not find

their way into the garden.

Hands-on in creating

restaurants post-quake

Ever wondered who is cooking your food when you go out to a café or

restaurant? The Star continues its series this week with Dux head chef

Tristan Anderson

Explore Chch’s best hospitality hotspots

CTV Freeview Channel 40 or live and on demand at ctv.co.nz

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10pm

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WHEN TRISTAN Anderson says he has

worked to create three restaurants from

scratch since the earthquake, you can take

it literally.

When the Dux team were working to

open Dux Live in 2011 they pitched in

to do whatever they could, whether that

meant picking up a paint brush or learning

to use a concrete grinder.

That teamwork was something he had

always loved about the kitchen, he said.

“It feels like a sport when you’re doing

service, making sure you’re manning

your section. It’s physically and mentally

demanding but very rewarding.”

He now works between Dux Dine in

Riccarton and Dux Central, managing 22

chefs as well as cooks and kitchen-hands.

He started at Dux de Lux in 2002, after

several years at Blue Jean Cuisine restaurants

in Sydenham and on Manchester St.

From there he landed a role working as a

chef in Melbourne.

But when in 2010 he was offered a job

back at Dux as sous chef, he jumped at the

chance to return.

Although he enjoyed the work in

Melbourne, he said many chefs there were

just “going through the motions”, and he

wanted to be part of building something

bigger.

The role at Dux gave him a chance to

learn more about management, and after

the earthquake he had to put that knowledge

straight into action as they worked to

open Dux Live in 2011, Dux Dine in 2012

and Dux Central last year.

Although management was a big part of

his work, he still stayed in the thick of the

action in the kitchen.

“I definitely try to create an

environment in both my kitchens that

I want to be in. I lead, but I make sure

these guys are all on a level where they are

learning together.”

Personally, he said there was still a lot he

was learning.

He said Dux owner Richard Sinke was

very well travelled and knowledgeable

when it came to food, so developing

menus which could impress him was its

own challenge.

He was recently named a finalist in

the chef category of the Christchurch

Hospitality Awards, alongside Harlequin

Public House owner Jonny Schwass

and Giulio Sturla of Lyttleton’s Roots

Restaurant.

He said it was an honour to be named

alongside the two, who were both chefs he

would “take my hat off to”.

Although cheffing had its ups and

downs, he was still passionate about food

and loved what he did.

Even after work, he said he enjoyed putting

together a roast or slow-cooked meal

at home for his partner and two children.

But although he ruled the kitchen at work,

that did not apply when he was at home.

“It’s her kitchen. We’ve been together

eight years, so I definitely know not to try

to give her any advice when it comes to

her cooking.”

Theatre/Arts

Maori theatre “booming”

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN ACCLAIMED playwright

is in the city to direct a

production at The Court

Theatre.

Waiora: Te ū kai pō – The

Homeland by Hone Kouka

will begin at the theatre next

month.

The play was written about 20

years ago by Kouka for the New

Zealand International Arts

Festival.

But Kouka said he wanted

to write a play for his parents,

which highlighted their experiences

moving from the East

Cape to the South Island.

Kouka was born in Balclutha

before spending the first 11

years of his life in Rangiora.

His parents have lived in

Rangiora for about 30 years and

Kouka still considers himself

a Cantabrian. He currently

resides in Wellington.

Kouka was the winner of

the Bruce Mason Playwriting

Award in 1992 and co-founded

theatre company Tawata Productions.

He became a member of the

New Zealand Order of Merit

for services to contemporary

PERFORMANCE: Kim Garrett with acclaimed New Zealand

playwright Hone Kouka during a rehearsal for the upcoming

production Waiora: Te ū kai pō – The Homeland at The Court

Theatre.

Maori theatre in June 2009.

Waiora: Te ū kai pō – The

Homeland tells the story of

18-year-old Rongo, who misses

her whanau and the sense of

belonging she had back in her

former home of Waiora.

The play touches on themes

including travelling and Pakeha

expectations of Maori in the

1960s.

“In the past, Maori weren’t

in a position of authority but

thankfully those times have

changed,” Kouka said.

“It is not negative but I see we

are a mature enough country

that we can ask those questions

of each other.”

Christchurch actor Kim Garrett

plays one of the key roles.

Garrett moved to the city 10

years ago to finish her Bachelor

of Performing Arts degree at

the National Academy of Singing

and Dramatic Art.

She will play the role of Wai

Te Atatu (Sue), a mother who

moves her family from Waiora

on the East Cape to Waikuku

Beach in Canterbury for a better

life.

The family really wants to

fit in. They choose not speak

Te Reo Maori . . . they choose

to adapt Pakeha ways because

they figure it makes their lives

easier,” Garrett said.

As a Maori person, Garrett

can relate to the play after

feeling like she was “the only

Maori in Christchurch” when

she first moved to the city.

“I wasn’t . . . but all I saw was

a sea of white faces and people

looking at me oddly,” she said.

Kouka said Maori theatre is

“booming” in New Zealand

and he has been commissioned

by The Court Theatre to write

another Christchurch-based

play.

Waiora: Te ū kai pō – The

Homeland will run from August

13-September 3. To book

tickets go to https://courttheatre.org.nz/show/waiora-te-ukai-po-the-homeland/

Repertory

Theatre’s

new website

ONE OF the city’s longest-running

theatre groups has relaunched their

image with a new website.

Bookings to go see Canterbury

Repertory Theatre performances

can now be made through their new

website, www.repertory.nz

The theatre’s administrator and

business manager David Watkins

said the decision to launch a new

website coincides with the decision

not to build a new theatre.

Their previous Kilmore St theatre

was closed following the September

2010 earthquake.

Their productions are now held at

the Elmwood Normal School’s auditorium

in Merivale.

Previously, tickets to the theatre’s

productions were available through

the Eventfinda website, meaning the

theatre paid about nine per cent of its

earnings to the booking company.

The Canterbury Repertory Theatre

has been open since 1928.

They kept staging plays throughout

World War 2 and immediately after

the earthquakes.

The theatre’s next show will be

William Shakespeare’s King Lear. The

production will be staged next month

to mark 400 years since Shakespeare’s

death.

Benchmark Homes’ latest show home is testament to

the new direction being forged by the company, says its

Director Richard Evans. For a solid six months Richard

and his team of innovative designers have been working

hard to create a new portfolio of 30 concept plans that

focus on functionality and form.

“During this intensive design period we really challenged

ourselves by asking how we could do things better in a

cost effective way. The Lincoln show home illustrates a

distinctive new style that characterises our ethos which

prizes high functionality and unique design above all

else.”

Due to the popularity of their Prestons show home they

adapted the executive style home to accommodate a

family lifestyle. “By retaining its elegant contemporary

style throughout and the U shaped living area that

proved to be the home’s key selling point we’ve received

overwhelmingly positive feedback that aligns perfectly

with today’s design savvy consumers.”

With a firm focus on strong design and high functionality,

the Lincoln show home uses natural products like

marble and cedar, as well as on-trend painted brick,

which provides a unique architectural aspect. Richard

explains that its architecturally driven design is evident in

standout features like the magnificent vaulted ceilings,

which elevates the living area to majestic heights.

Energy efficiency is a key component of all Benchmark

Homes. Using natural timbers like cedar from a local,

sustainable supply, integrating LED lighting, skylights

that add warmth and light, clever window placement that

maximise all day sun, and a substantially thicker floor

underlay, all work together to create modern homes that

are both sustainable and economical to run.

Quality control and attention to the finer details is what

sets Benchmark Homes apart. Since the quakes

insurers’ demands on building codes and compliance

has helped raised the bar on quality. Producing ‘zero

defect homes’ now provides consumers with a higher

guarantee on the finish of their build.

The expectation clients have for a new build that’s free of

imperfections is becoming more and more achievable.

Our project managers take great pride in the work we

do and ensure clients are given ample opportunity to

assess the quality of the finished product, giving clients

the utmost confidence.”

While Benchmark Homes has a range of concept plans

on offer, these are designed as a starting point for clients

and bespoke designs that begin with a client’s brief

enable complete creative control with no limitations.

Travel

Madrid: A case of what sights

• By Mike Yardley

MAGNIFICENT Madrid belongs

in that very special league of city

destinations, where it’s myriad

of sights and mouth-drooling

experiences could easily keep you

enthralled for weeks.

That in itself creates a

formidable dilemma – what to

do, what to skip, when time is the

enemy?

On previous visits, I’ve

overlooked some of the heavyhitters

like the Prado, which is

home to the one world’s largest

collections of artworks. So, a

fortnight ago, I set aside half

a day to trawl its numerous

galleries and the one thousand

masterpieces, by the likes of

Titian, Velazquez, Rubens and

Goya.

What I loved about the Prado,

is its layout is logical, so you can

literally walk through the history

of Western Art, over a thousand

years, and see its steady evolution.

From the relatively

unsophisticated medieval and

Gothic paintings through to

the flamboyance of the Baroque

period, and on to the Romantics

and Realists. Mentally soothing

and a great escapist refuge on a

stonkingly hot day. Palacio Real

LANDMARKS: Madrid’s Cibeles Fountain and The Bear and the Tree statue are photographic standouts.

is the other big set-piece that I

visited for the first time.

Like the Prado, you can’t take

photos inside, which is a pity

because this palace of 2800

rooms, of which 50 are thrown

open to the masses, is furnished

with ridiculously regal baroque

extravagance. I had to keep

picking my jaw off the floor. On

the odd occasion when I was

tempted to take a sneaky photo,

a po-faced attendant would

mysteriously appear from behind

a velvet curtain, with a stern and

dissuasive expression, as I did an

awkward fumble with my camera,

a la Mr Bean.

Palacio Real is excess all

areas, deliberately designed to

imitate Versailles, when it was

commissioned by the Bourbon

kings in 1734. Don’t miss the

old Royal Pharmacy where the

wall shelving is stacked with all

manner of potions and herbal

concoctions, suggesting the

Spanish royals were quite a sickly

lot.

In a city brimming with

landmarks, the photographic

standouts for me are the Cibeles

Fountain, where Real Madrid

celebrates all football triumphs,

and The Bear and The Tree statue.

Emblematic of Madrid, you’ll find

this gorgeous artwork in Puerta

del Sol, the city’s historic centre.

Sol would be a magical place

to ring in the New Year, beneath

the old Royal Post Office clock.

Tradition dictates that you eat 12

grapes, one for each chime of the

clock, and make a wish for the

new year.

For a lesser-trafficked slice of

Madrid, stake out the Temple of

Debod, atop a hill behind Palacio

Real. 2200 years old, it was

teleported from Egypt to Spain

in 1968, to make way for a hydro

dam project!

cages, must produce the

More intrigue with Warriors selections

ANOTHER WEEK, another

intriguing Warriors line-up.

The club may be stuck on the

bottom half of the ladder, but

they are in the top echelon of the

NRL when it comes to sending

mixed messages with their selections.

The latest round of musical

chairs at Mt Smart sees Tui Lolohea

return to full-back for Saturday’s

clash with the Panthers.

It will mark the first time

Lolohea has worn the No 1 jersey

since the round 15 win over

the Roosters. Since then he has

started once on the wing against

the Titans, and had a total of 60

minutes from three interchange

appearances.

It’s unfortunately been par

for the course for the 21-yearold.

Since his debut in 2014,

he has played every position in

the backline, with 17 games at

full-back, 11 on the wing, four at

centre, six in the halves and five

from the bench.

To accommodate Lolohea,

David Fusitua switches to centre

at the expense of Blake Ayshford,

dropped to the interchange

bench. Ayshford has started

every game this year.

A month ago Fusitua was lauded

as the best fullback in the club

(in the absence of Roger Tuivasa-

Sheck) and he has caught the eye

with his late piercing runs into

the backline and tidy work under

the high ball.

He’s a compelling talent, a

player that needs to be in the

starting line up every week,

but he faces a big ask on Saturday.

Fusitua has made only three

NRL appearances at centre in

his career, and the last was more

than a year ago – but he will run

out with an unfamiliar number

in a crucial match.

“We feel this is the best for the

team and [Lolohea] will give us

that spark attack-wise as well,”

Warriors assistant coach Justin

Morgan told Radio Sport.

The only other change sees Ben

Matulino move into the starting

lineup with James Gavet shifting

to the bench.

Warriors – Tuimoala Lolohea,

Ken Maumalo, David Fusitu’a,

Solomone Kata, Manu Vatuvei,

Thomas Leuluai, Shaun Johnson,

Jacob Lillyman, Issac Luke, Ben

Matulino, Bunty Afoa, Ryan

Hoffman (C), Simon Mannering,

Jazz Tevaga, Sam Lisone, James

Gavet, Blake Ayshford.

Must win match for St Andrew’s

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ANDREW’S College

will need to beat the two

front runners in the UC

Championship if they are to

qualify for this year’s play-offs.

The school pulled off a

historic upset 12 months ago,

defeating the much-fancied

Christchurch Boys’ High School

first XV 25-24.

They will need to pull off a

repeat of last season’s result on

Saturday when they travel to

Christchurch BHS. They then

play championship leader’s

Christ’s College in the last

round.

With two games to play,

Christchurch BHS is already

assured of a home semi-final.

The team won’t be taking this

weekend’s clash lightly, though,

still hurting from their 2015

result.

“It was interesting, a lot of the

boys have mentioned that STAC

is the game they’ve been looking

forward to all year. I think

it was the first time they had

beaten us in 12 or 13 years,” said

Christchurch BHS coach Mike

Drury.

Drury is also well aware of

how much is at stake for STAC

on Saturday and knows they

will throw everything at his

the first time on Saturday since last year’s 25-24 victory to

side, in search of a play-off spot.

STAC are on the edge of the

top four. Just three points separate

seven teams all vying for a

play-off spot.

“Anybody is capable of beating

anyone else on their day. It

shows with St Thomas’ beating

Shirley, and Rangiora beating

Marlborough. It’s going to come

down to the last round to see

who makes the top four and top

eight,” said STAC coach Mike

Johnston.

Although making the finals

will be the objective with two

rounds remaining, Johnston

believes the team has already

punched above their weight.

“We haven’t got the strike

power we had last year, but in

saying that, from our point of

view, we’ve done pretty well

this year with a young team.

I’ve been impressed with their

passion and commitment to

play for STAC this year,” said

Johnston.

A number of this weekend’s

games will be make or break.

When Timaru host Marlborough

on Saturday, only the victor

will have a play-off chance

going into the final round. The

same applies for Burnside High

School and St Bede’s College.

STAC v Christchurch BHS

will be broadcast live on CTV.

Kick-off is at 2.45 from

Christchurch BHS.

President’s

Shield up for

grabs

THE LAST round of the Canterbury

Premier League hockey competition

will feature a winner takes all match

between Harewood and Carlton

Redcliffs.

Going into Saturday’s game, 2015

champion Harewood top the standings

on 36 points while Carlton

Redcliffs sit on 34, meaning a draw

will be enough for Harewood to win

the President’s Shield.

However, after the round-robin, the

top four teams will go into the playoff

to compete for the Canterbury

Premier League championship.

The teams have met once already

this year, when Carlton Redcliffs took

the spoils 4-3 on June 11.

Harewood’s Garren Fyfe and Carlton

Redcliffs’ Tom Mouldey share the

competition’s top goal scoring spot

with 17 goals a piece.

Although both teams will still

qualify for this year’s league semifinals,

Carlton Redcliffs coach Jeremy

Symonds believes the bragging rights

will be decided this weekend.

He said the team’s main goal at the

beginning of the year was to win the

round-robin.

Saturday’s match gets underway at

4.30pm at Marist Park.

Weekday coverage of local sport

with Gordon Findlater

HIGHLANDERS COACH Jamie

Joseph has acknowledged the

threat the Lions pose against his

side ahead of their semi-final

clash at Ellis Park this weekend,

claiming they are a team that

have improved as the competition

has progressed and play an

all-round style of rugby.

Speaking to the New Zealand

Herald from Johannesburg,

Joseph said the South African

outfit had been a consistently

solid side and would challenge

his defending champion team in

the franchise’s second play-off

match of the season.

They’ve been a consistently

good team,” Joseph said.

“We had a good game against

the Lions, but since they’ve been

back in South Africa, they’ve just

gone from strength to strength.

“Unlike a lot of the South African

teams, they play a running

game of football, they can maul,

they can scrum, so they’ve got

a total game, and I guess that’s

one of the big reasons why they

are still here at this stage of the

competition.

The challenge is in front of

us, we’re really looking forward

to it.”

Highlanders 50-test halfback

Aaron Smith added that the

Lions were an outfit not to be

taken lightly.

They’re very similar to New

Zealand teams, but then they

also have the traits of a normal

South African team,” Smith said.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY v NEW BRIGHTON

3pm, Sunday July 31 at Rugby Park, Christchurch.

Lincoln’s objective - back to back trophies

Back to back Hawkins trophy titles. That’s

the objective for Lincoln University going into

Sunday’s clash with rivals New Brighton.

The two clubs have plenty of history.

Lincoln University had the chance to clinch a

fourth straight Hawkins cup title in early May.

They met New Brighton in the final round of the

competition in what would turn out to be the

cup decider.

The match lived up to the hype, a missed drop

goal attempt from Lincoln Universities Brett

cameron just inside 30 metres would be the

decider, as New Brighton took home the cup in a

32-30 thriller.

Lincoln University have the chance to reverse

the odds on Sunday when they meet New

Brighton in another winner takes all scenario.

Lincoln dominated last year’s metro

competition, going unbeaten the whole year.

They haven’t had an easy run in 2016 however.

The division one competition is a tough old

competition. Last year was probably a one off

and this year i knew we were going to have some

losses. I think it’s what you learn from those

losses that makes you a better team and for our

younger players losing was a really good thing,”

said Lincoln University coach John Haggart.

Lincoln University have the luxury of having

a large chunk of the regions top young talent

which has made its way from around the country

in search of a super rugby career with the

crusaders.

John Haggart highlighted Jordie Barrett -

younger brother of Beauden Barrett - as one of

the younger players that has taken the team to a

new level.

“He’s certainly added tremendous impetus

to the team since returning from New Zealand

under 20’s.”

Barrett’s bag of tricks were well on display in

New Brighton’s 36-34 semi-final victory over

Sydenham on Saturday.

He scored two tries late in the game to singlehandedly

put his team into the final. With ten

minutes left Barrett beautifully chipped the

Sydenham defence, with the ball bouncing onto a

platter for him to score. His second try was even

more impressive, an amazing effort from Lincoln

inside their own 22 resulted in Barrett making

a break and then rounding crusaders full-back

Mitch Hunt to score the winner on full-time.

The coach was impressed with his starts

efforts, proving crucial in what was a true, hard

fought semi-final victory.

“She was a good old classic back and forth

match, that for sure. There was a mixture of relief

after the game but also a lot of pride as well,” says

Haggart.

Lincoln University defeated christchurch

24-19 at Rugby Park 12 months ago to claim

last year’s Hawkins trophy. only around half

of 2015’s trophy winning side will take place

in Sundays final. That’s the nature of university

rugby with young players coming and going.

Sunday will be extra special for the club with

the Lincoln University colts side playing in the

Hawkins colts Premier trophy Final. The game

will be played as a curtain raiser to the Division

one Hawkins trophy final at Rugby Park.

Coaches Comment on the Opposition:

“I remember very clearly last year we played New Brighton in the semi-final,

and that was a ding-dong battle. We know every game that we play New Brighton

its going to be tough, they’re a top club, they’re physical,they work hard and

have all the attributes of a championship club”

Hawkins Div 1 Club Rugby Trophy Final

New Brighton in with a chance

to make history

NeW BRIgHtoN have a chance to make

history this weekend. The seaside club has

never won both the round-robin cup and top

six trophy competitions in the same year.

The team claimed the Hawkins cup in the

final round-robin match on June 4 with a

stunning 32-30 win over Lincoln University.

Since then the message has been clear, they

want to do the double.

aaron Mccoy, the club’s most experienced

player spoke to the team before last weekend’s

semi-final, explaining that when the trophy

is being held aloft this Sunday nobody will

remember who won the cup earlier in the

season.

They couldn’t have a bigger opponent to try

and create history against. New Brighton and

Lincoln University have been the stand-out

performers in the metro competition over the

last few year years and have plenty of recent

history.

They’ve got some of the best young talent

from around the country. It is a rivalry, there’s

no doubt about that because they’re the bench

mark,” said New Brighton coach Scott Pawson

Saturday’s 24-20 win over christchurch went

right down to the wire. New Brighton trailed

with less than ten minutes remaining, before

replacement centre alisi tupuailei charged

over the line to secure the teams spot in

Sunday’s grand final.

It was a much needed turn in form, New

Brighton came into the finals on the back of

consecutive defeats.

“We won our first three games in the top six,

we had sort of cemented our spot in the semifinals

and a bit of the edge went off. It was a bit

of complacency on our behalf and the other

teams played well to be fair,” says Pawson.

New Brighton have made the semi-finals of

the Hawkins trophy the previous two years.

2013 was the last time they lifted the trophy,

Scott Pawson’s first year coaching the team and

their first trophy win since 1984.

“We’ve got eight players that were involved

in that final in 2013. It’s nice having guy’s

that have won it and had that experience.

It definitely helps being able to rely on that

experience,” said Pawson.

No 8 aaron Mccoy has been a standout for

New Brighton in 2016. The experienced loose

forward leads the team with 12 tries and is

third in the Division one MVP - most valuable

player - standings.

“He’s been in the form of his career this

season. He’s had a bit of a glitch the last couple

of weeks, he went on a trip to Manila and has

taken a couple of weeks to recover from that. It

probably does coincide with the two losses we

had,” says Pawson.

Coaches Comment on the Opposition:

They’ve got a very good young backline with Jordie Barrett,

Jack goodhue and Harrison groundwater they’re going to be

good Super Rugby players. They’re forward pack is underrated to

be honest, it’s a good young pack.”

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY v NEW BRIGHTON

3pm, Sunday July 31 at Rugby Park, Christchurch.

New Brighton captain Billy Harmon who

missed a chunk of the first round of the

competition has also been impressive for the

seasiders this year. He was rewarded for his

Value Cars

BMW has combination

of power and efficiency

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S A phone call I’ve

received a couple of times

in the past. The invitation

goes something like this:

“Would you like to fly to

Queenstown and drive

a new BMW back to

Christchurch?’’

Of course, it’s an offer

I’ve been only too willing

to accept, especially

considering that drive is one

of the best in New Zealand,

and the car in this instance

was my favourite out of the

BMW stable – the 330i.

It was in April when

I evaluated the 320i, a

3-Series car which has

effectively the same engine,

but with lesser power

outputs, the 330i is rated

with 185kW and 350Nm

against 135kW and 270Nm.

Of course, there’s also a

four-cylinder diesel model

in the line-up.

The 3-Series in total is a

true sports sedan range and

I’m really smitten with the

concept, the 330i has road

feel, power and handling

that makes you feel so much

part of the car.

And if you take into

account it has economy

almost unrealistic for

a performance car, the

combination is simply

amazing.

On my long highway

journey and cruising at

a steady 100km/h, the

instantaneous fuel usage

figure was constantly

hovering around fourlitres

per 100km (70mpg),

that sits well with BMW’s

combined cycle average

claim of just 5.8l/100km

(49mpg).

These figures could

suggest unremarkable

performance, but the

opposite applies, the 330i

is the powerhouse of the

3-Series line-up, it will

scamper to 100km/h in

5.8sec and will make

an 80km/h to 120km/h

overtaking time of 4sec.

And I made many overtakes

on my journey, the 330i is a

touring car of true genius.

But it is also the docile

sedan for when the driving

environment is a lot more

sedate, I had the test car

for a week at home and

BMW 330i: Touring car of true genius.

used it for inner-city travel,

especially to and from the

hospital during the time my

wife was having surgery.

The 330i is involving to

drive at all times, as a driver

you feel tightly connected

to it. The 3-Series isn’t,

big but it does translate its

compact proportions into a

user-friendly environment,

and that is something

BMW does well, not only

is it desirable, as a sports

machine it relishes the

everyday role.

• Price – BMW 330i,

$88,000

• Dimensions –

Length, 4633mm;

width, 1811mm;

height, 1429mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,

1988cc, 185kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.8sec

• Fuel usage–

5.8l/100km

To reinforce that, the 330i

has compliant suspension,

it soaks up the big hits from

Christchurch’s roads, but it

also has the firming needed

to control body balance

tightly when fired into a

series of tight corners.

Of course, the 3-Series

has a host of wheel and tyre

options but the test car was

sitting on aggressive, 19in

Bridgestone Potenza rubber.

I leaned the evaluation car

heavily into several tight

and twisty sections and

can conclusively say grip

is phenomenal, the quality

follow us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch

www.blackwells.co.nz

of the fully independent

suspension lends itself to

sporty driving, and if you

take into account the feel

you get from rear-wheeldrive,

then being part of a

car such as this is almost

the ultimate pleasure.

At the other end,

sitting longitudinally, is a

turbocharged, four-cylinder

engine. The twin-camshaft

unit works through an

eight-speed automatic

gearbox. It has a paddleshift

mechanism if you

want to take control over

the gearshift process. There

are also sport, normal and

eco pro driving modes that

the driver can use so that

the car can adapt to varying

driving conditions.

I used sport mode a lot

when passing opportunities

arrived, and normal mode

when long straights called

for the use of cruise control.

With the decisive torque

boost that turbocharging

provides, the 330i is a swift

mover under acceleration, it

will pull from anywhere in

the rev band. At city speeds

the engine will often hover

at around 1000rpm, yet it

will unleash and rev freely if

the throttle is given a nudge.

The 330i lands here at

$88,000, it’s a premium

price but you do get a lot of

car for the money. Column

space doesn’t allow for

comprehensive detailing

of specification items but

to say it has a lot of kit and

can be specced to personal

satisfaction.

However, the factor that

means the most to me is the

engineering prowess that

BMW builds into its motor

vehicles, the chassis design

and construction create a

sublime driving experience

while the engine is a true

delight with its surge and

keen throttle response.

As much as I enjoyed the

drive back to Christchurch

and, as much as I lust after

the 330i, I’d still be happy

with its sibling – the 320i. It

doesn’t miss out on much,

and a potential buyer could

end up with a $16,000

saving.

Winter is a great time to sell...

People often think of summer as the best time to sell

their home. There are however major benefits to sell in

winter. The life changes that cause buyers to look for a

new home - new job, growing family, a need to up or

downsize - don’t just happen in summer. In winter fewer

homes are on the market, that means less competition

for the buyers who are looking for a home like yours.

And with interest rates so low, this winter is seeing more

buyers out looking. They want to lock in low interest

rates and don’t want to risk waiting in case these deals

are gone. An informed buyer also knows that things that

aren’t evident in summer, like dampness and lack of sun,

are more easily identified in winter.

If a buyer loves your house in the middle of winter, they

will love it when the sun shines in summer.

Step 1: Finance

Firstly, it is important to organise your finances in

advance in order to work out what you can realistically

afford. There is little point getting excited about an

impending building project if you have no idea how far

your finances will stretch. Draw up a realistic budget of

your present household expenses to see whether building

a new home is in fact feasible. Once you have an idea

of how much money you are able to outlay without

causing yourself excessive hardship, it is time to start

investigating the cost involved when constructing your

new home.

Step 2: Purchasing a section

Buying the right section is an essential part of the

building process and as such, there are a number of

important things that need to be considered.

Is the section close to all necessary amenities, such

as schools, shops, hospitals and public transport? Does

it have a view, plenty of sun, privacy and good drainage,

or is it prone to flooding, windy and miles away from

civilisation? Visit at different times of the day, in different

weather conditions and if time is on your side, different

times of the year to see how much sun it gets in the winter

when the sun is at its lowest.

Also, take into consideration its potential as a building

site – is access difficult? This could have an impact on

building costs.

Find out from your local council what services, such as

water, sewage, power, phone and gas, are connected to the

site. Check whether there is good television and mobile

phone reception, or whether your new address means you

have to scale the clothesline and hold your phone in an

obscure position just to send a text message.

The neighbourhood can also be a contentious issue

when purchasing a section. What are the neighbours like,

and are their properties well-kept? Are there overhanging

trees that could cause a nuisance? Could there be a noise

problem from them or their pets? Get a feel of the area,

listening for traffic, animals or noisy machinery that is in

use around the clock.

If there is vacant land adjacent to your proposed site,

find out whether the council has any plans for it and what

can and can’t be built there.

Before buying the section, you also need to find out

what is in your council’s district plan, and what resource

consents you might need. You also need to request a LIM

report, which is held by your local council and outlines

all information pertaining to your section regarding

rates, land features, environmental issues, restrictions on

land or building use, resource consents issued, potential

contaminations, details about septic tanks, hazardous

substances and storm water or sewage drains.

The report may also contain information about

sacred areas and may also provide aerial photographs.

This information may help you make the all-important

decision to either buy the section or leave it alone. It will

also give you an indication as to whether the purchase

price is fair.

Step 3: Choose and brief the designer

Before deciding on a designer for your building

project, it is necessary to conduct some research in order

to find out which type will suit you best.

Speak to a few before making your choice and liaise

with them periodically once work on the design of your

home has commenced. Get involved by gathering ideas

for materials, fixtures, fittings and discuss them with your

designer.

Step 4: Finding a builder

Once the plans are drawn, the materials have been

chosen and your finance is arranged, the next step in the

building process is likely to be finding a builder.

Hiring the right builder is crucial to the whole

building experience. People who have been involved

in building a house typically report that the key

factor in making it a happy experience is finding a

good builder and subcontractors. The most common

things that soured their building experience were

poor workmanship, contractors not turning up, no

communication, complaints overlooked, problems left

unresolved, messages ignored and delays. In contrast,

people who had positive experiences reported that the

builders they had hired were highly skilled, honest,

knowledgeable, patient and sympathetic to their goals

and budget.

Whatever type of renovation work you want

to have done, whether it’s a new kitchen,

a renovated bathroom, a whole home

makeover, or outside work such as fences,

decks and pergolas, the team at Quality

Tradesmen can do the job, including the

project management.

“From concept to completion, we’ve got

you covered,” says owner David Gawith.

The team of qualified tradesmen includes

builders, plasterers, painters, plumbers and

electricians, who will undertake all those

aspects of the work, completing it on time

and on budget.

“Our name says it all, really. We provide

quality work,” David says. “And we are not

happy unless the client is happy. We keep

going until the client is completely happy

with the job. Happy clients who tell their

friends about us are the best business card

you can have.”

Reliability is another key aspect of the

firm’s business, with clients assured that the

tradesmen will turn up when expected, and

complete the work as required.

“We’re a modern firm working with up-todate

methods, but with the old-fashioned

values that people expect when they’re

paying for a job,” David says.

The team at Quality Tradesmen have the

skills to transform any room, any home, to

not only add value but also to create the

living spaces you want.
