Sore neck – now paralysed

• By Gabrielle Stuart

ON A Saturday in March,

19-year-old Josh Caldwell

McCausland woke up with a

sore neck and a strange tingling

in his fingers – like he had hit his

funny bone.

He put it down to sleeping

funny, and brushed it off.

But the next day he woke in

agonising pain and, as his sister

rushed him into hospital, he

collapsed.

As breathing became a struggle,

he was put into an induced

coma.

When he woke up five days

later, he was paralysed from the

neck down, unable to move or

talk.

He still struggles to understand

how he went from being

a normal teenager, to being

trapped in his own body.

Just a week beforehand, he had

been three weeks into his dream

job, running an after-school

programme.

Ultimately, he wanted to be a

carer for children with disabilities.

DEVELOPERS AT war over

the future of High St heritage

buildings look like they may

resolve their differences without

having to go to court.

A group of developers

including Antony

Gough (top left)

and Philip Carter

had taken legal

action after crown

company Otakaro

Ltd opted to sell seven

of the Duncan’s

buildings directly to

Richard Peebles (left)

and his associates.

The group were concerned

about the extent of retail development

outside of the retail precinct

designated in the Central City

Development Unit’s blueprint

and said Otakaro Ltd should

have sold the buildings on the

open market.

However, yesterday both Mr

Peebles and Mr Gough said they

were confident of being able to

reach an agreement out of court.

Mr Peebles said he had been

disappointed that other developers

had taken legal action before

coming to talk to him about

the plans, but was sure they had

some valid concerns.

“Everyone is sitting down

and discussing their concerns

and seeing if there is common

ground, and there is a lot.”

Mr Gough said it was good

that Mr Peebles was interested in

restoring the buildings.

“We’re very happy with shops

on High St, not so happy with

turning the car park in behind

into a big retail precinct – that’s

not what the blueprint says.”

Several heritage advocates expressed

their support for Mr Peebles’

plans to The Star yesterday.

Christchurch Heritage Trust

chairwoman Anna Crighton

said the legal challenge had been

unhelpful.

SOME PEOPLE get dealt terrible

hands in life and Josh Caldwell

McCausland is one of them.

Josh until recently was a

healthy teenager into the

outdoors. But one morning he

woke up with a sore neck.

That sore neck has developed

into something much more

serious – he has inflammation of

the spine, is in a wheelchair and

is a patient at St John of God in

Halswell.

Reporter Gabrielle Stuart went

to see him yesterday and reports

on this courageous young man

on page 1.

Gabrielle said Josh’s attitude

was “awesome”.

We wish him all the best in his

bid to beat his illness.

A little bit of Paris has come to

the central city (see page 3).

Car parking we know is at a

premium in the central city, like

in Paris, and most other cities in

the world.

Many apartments don’t come

with car parks so the marketing

gurus are offering a deal – buy

an apartment and a Vespa comes

with it.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw more flooding in the

city on August 8, 1945. The worst was at Shirley

and Sumner. On August 8, 1989, Christchurch

Central MP and Deputy Prime Minister, Geoffrey

Palmer (left) was appointed prime minister after

the resignation of David Lange. On August 9, 1840,

Captain Langlois in the Compte de Paris arrived

in Pigeon Bay with 63 French settlers. A day l ater

ROCKS FIRED

In the midst of gun crime on the rise

in Christchurch, armed robberies

becoming an almost a weekly

thing, residents are keeping an eye

out on suspicious noises in their

neighbourhood. Police responded on

Tuesday to a report of about 20 gunshots

in Bryndwr. Two units searched the area

and found the cause of the concern –

contractors loading a trailer with rocks.

Police say it should not deter people

phoning in with concerns they have in

their neighbourhood.

Free scooter with new home

Paris idea

comes to

Christchurch

• By Bridget Rutherford

A FRENCH marketing

campaign where apartment

buyers are offered a free Vespa

instead of a car park is being

used in central Christchurch.

Harcourts is selling apartments

in the new Prestons Central

development on Barbadoes

St, which is being built now –

but the apartments do not come

with car parks included.

Buyers would have to pay an

extra $20,000 for their own car

park.

So developers, the Rockwell

Group, and Harcourts have

decided to throw in a free Italian

Vespa Sprint

50cc scooter, to

those who do

not want to purchase

an extra

car park.

Harcourts

real estate agent

Mark O’Loughlin (left) said he

had seen a similar marketing

campaign for apartments in

Paris and thought it would work

in central Christchurch.

He said Christchurch was perfect

for scooters because they are

fuel efficient and easy to park.

•From page 1

“Those buildings, apart from

the few that are privately owned,

have been languishing there

since the earthquake and nobody

bothered about them until Richard

Peebles picked them up and

decided to do something with

them,” she said.

“Now all of a sudden other

people want to buy them as well.

The biggest decision is choosing

yellow, red, blue or white,’’

he said.

The development would have

30 apartments, with 20 car

parks available to be bought.

There were 16 apartments left,

he said.

“We’ve had four direct sales

that have come from the marketing.”

The development is expected

to be completed by mid-way

through next year, he said.

“When they get the key for

their new apartment, they get

their new Vespa.”

Mr O’Loughlin said Harcourts

was looking at a similar

marketing campaign for other

developments closer to Hagley

Park in the future.

Well everybody had a good

Christchurch Civic Trust board

member Neil Roberts said the

legal challenge had been disappointing.

“That area of the city is fairly

dormant at the moment and it

needs to be activated.”

Former mayor Garry Moore,

who has been involved with trying

to encourage development of

the area, also said he had been

disappointed by the legal challenge.

“I think when we start trying

From kayak to wheelchair

ACTIVE: Before

the spinal

inflammation

which left him

paralysed,

Josh Caldwell

McCausland

loved getting

outdoors, hiking,

skiing and

kayaking.

•From page 1

He lived with his sister, nieces

and nephew he loved, had a busy

social life with plenty of friends,

and enjoyed tramping and skiing.

Now, he can see the snowcapped

mountains from where

he sits in his wheelchair in front

of the big glass windows in his

ward.

“This is the first winter I

haven’t been skiing in years,” he

said longingly – but then perks

up, with characteristic humour.

“At least it’s been a s..t ski

season.”

The technicalities of what happened

to him he knows insideout.

He had transverse myelitis,

a neurological disorder caused

by inflammation of the spinal

cord. Doctors don’t know what

causes it. His was a rare case

because it was in his neck, so left

him completely paralysed. Some

patients recover, but it is likely he

will never walk again.

He said the first month was

the hardest, as he wasn’t able to

talk.

His sister would bring in an

alphabet board, and he would

spell out what he wanted to say

by nodding or shaking his head

as she pointed to letters.

Many times, the frustration

brought him to tears.

He said the loss of dignity had

been one of the hardest things

to deal with, as people had to

help him do even the most basic

things.

Then came learning to brush

his teeth or to feed himself,

and the difficult trips out of the

hospital.

“When you want to go out for

lunch with your friends, saying

‘hey, could you feed me please’ is

not the best,” he said.

Now, his No 1 goal is just to be

back home with his family.

As his father died when he was

a child and his mother was out

of the picture, he had grown up

with his sister, Sarah Rushton,

and her children, Olivia, 16,

Lucas, seven, and five-year-old

Maddie.

The things he missed most

were picking them up from

school, or helping them with

their homework, he said.

But because he was paralysed

through an illness not an injury,

he does not qualify for ACC help

to get him back home.

He said the Ministry of Health

helped with medical costs, but

did not have the same programmes

available to help with

transport or to adapt the family

home for a wheelchair.

Mrs Rushton said she had

advice that her home was too

small to adapt for a wheelchair,

so she had no idea how to get

him home.

But she was determined to do

everything she could.

She is trying to fundraise

herself to get him a wheelchair

van and adapt the house through

a Givealittle page and charity

grants.

“Leaving him there by himself

breaks my heart every night,” she

said.

“He was always on the go,

always wanting to help

everyone. He is a really special

person.”

The Givealittle page raising

money to get Josh home can be

found at www.givealittle.co.nz/

Ageing population will change how we live

• By Shelley Robinson

IN 2043, Christchurch could

have 84 per cent more twoperson

households than larger

family units and more than

double the number of 80-yearolds.

City council projections on

how the city will look in 30 years

are a stark reminder that an

ageing population, and the consequences

of it, are just around

the corner.

The increase in the 80-year

and older group will be two-anda-half

times more than what it

was in 2013, of 15,000. While the

over-65 age category will double

in the city.

Meanwhile, Selwyn could have

a population explosion of people

in the over-80 category, with

an increase from 900 to about

7000, while Waimakariri will

have five times its current figure

of 2000.

The data also showed that the

city is getting bigger quicker.

In the previous 30 years,

59,700 was added to the

population, while between 2013

and 2043 the city will grow by

nearly 80,000 – a 23 per cent

increase.

Greater Christchurch

Concern said

the city is not

prepared with

suitable homes for smaller and

older households.

Mr Stanicich said the city

council needed to work with the

building industry more.

“Work with the market we are

trying to build for in five to 10

years time. Where are we going

to put these smaller houses without

creating a slum?”

He said planning for older

people homes needed to be located

near a number of health,

transport and other services –

like a “community hub”.

“Where are they going to build

out. Where are we going to put

it?”

He said while the city council

did allow builds of older person

housing, it was not in quantities

that the future needed.

“If they designate this area to

be over 60 area, and have over

60s facilities, they [building

companies] will build it,” he said.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport Richard

Osborne said it was aware of

the demographic changes in the

city and the likely increase in

demand for smaller dwellings.

But he said provision of

adequate housing was up to

developers.

The trend isn’t new and has

been projected for many years,

but it is up to the development

sector as to how and when housing

is made,” he said

He said city plans have

encouraged townhouses and

smaller units, but the number of

bedrooms provided “depends on

how the developer reads the

market demand”.

In suburban living zones, it

permits subdivision down to

400-450m², by providing medium

density and

higher density

zones for apartments

particularly

in the central

city inner suburbs

and in suburban

shopping areas,

he said.

Since the February 22, 2011

earthquake, the Land Use

Recovery plan enabled intensification

on residential suburban

zones where there was a dwelling

and what would be built

was one and two bedroom units

due to floor area restrictions,

said Mr Osborne.

Age Concern chief executive

Simon Templeton (above) said

authorities, including the city

council, needed to work with

others better, including health,

business, social services and the

building sector, to better plan.

He said authorities had

only ramped up planning with

the first of the “baby boomers”

retiring.

Dalziel opens campaign

whiteware warehouse

world’s best value whiteware!

Bid for

second

term

• By Bridget Rutherford

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel is

officially seeking re-election.

She registered her nomination

yesterday to go for her second

term in the top job, running

under the banner of Best for

Christchurch.

“I’ve been proud to represent

Christchurch for the last three

years, but I believe there is

unfinished business. As mayor,

I have based my decisions on

what I truly believe is best for

Christchurch – not best for

council, not best for Government

and not best for an individual

interest group – but best

for Christchurch,” she said.

“This is what I continue to

stand for.”

Ms Dalziel will stand against

confirmed candidates John

Minto, of Keep our Assets

Canterbury, and perennial candidate

Tubby Hansen.

Ms Dalziel’s bid was supported

by former National

cabinet minister Philip Burdon,

and Ministry of Awesome

founder Kaila Colbin, who both

nominated her for the job three

years ago.

Ms Colbin said she had “zero

hesitation” in nominating Ms

Dalziel for the second time.

She said it was difficult

to stand up to the public and

be open about the city’s

financial situation and insurance

issues, which is what had

to be done over the past three

years.

“She has done a tremendous

job. I’m really happy she’s standing

again.”

Ms Colbin is helping to organise

held in Christchurch in November.

The whiteware appliance store

has coped criticism before their

It is set to open in early September.

Cares Appliances owner Matthew

Carpenter said it was the

first time he had received complaints,

in spite of his business

being in the city for 10 years.

“I had a complaint that said the

colour was terrible and disgusting.

I’ve also had comments from

third parties who’d seen the

colour and were put off by it,” Mr

Carpenter said.

This isn’t the first store of its

kind in the city. There are also

several other chain stores in

Cycling getting safer – survey

• By Shelley Robinson

PERCEPTIONS OF cycling

being a safe form of travel on the

city’s streets is the highest it has

been in five years – particularly

among students.

Environment Canterbury’s

2016 report on regional transport

showed that 76 per cent of

students, 15 years and older,

viewed cycling as a safe form of

transport, up from 45 per cent

last year, and 52 per cent in 2012.

Workers felt less safe cycling on

just 45 per cent, but this number

was up from 34 per cent in 2012.

About 55 per cent of residents

in the city can get to their place

of work by cycling, the survey

found, but according to the 2013

census only 7 per cent of workers

use pedal power regularly.

Cycling has been under

the spotlight in the city post-

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

with 10 deaths.

Spokes Canterbury chairman

Don Babe said the city council’s

$156 million cycleways project

has helped make cycling safer

around the city, especially the

partial opening of the Uni-Cycle

route that runs from Canterbury

University to the central city.

They are starting to connect

now . . . it has just meant there is

big areas that can access the city

without going on the roads and

that is making a difference.”

He said motorists had also

changed their behaviour since the

earthquakes and had learned to

navigate roadworks and cyclists.

Many now allowed cyclists

to “take the lane” – ride in the

middle – through road works’

pinch points.

Canterbury University

Professor Simon Kingham, who

researches transport, said with

increased perceptions of safety

on cycles, combined with the

cycleways, more people would

opt to take up pedal power –

starting with younger people first

who were “bolder”.

Cyclist deaths since February 22, 2011, earthquake

June 2016: Phillip Eden, 60, died after being struck by a car on Main North Rd, near the

old Waimakariri Bridge in Kainga.

February 2016: Richard Chandler, 52, struck by a train at the Fendalton Rd crossing while

cycling

October 2015: Richard Caldwell, 59, died after in a downhill crash on Evans Pass Rd, no

other vehicle was involved

September 2014: Ming Chih Hsieh, 50, died after being hit by a truck at the intersection of

Carmen and Waterloo Rds

April 2014: Student nurse Sharla Haerewa, 22, was hit and killed on Lincoln Rd

July 2013: Colin Alexander, 76, died after colliding with a car on Hills Road, St Albans

March 2013: Joanne Drummond, 54, of Avondale, killed after being struck by a SUV at the

intersection of Breezes and Wainoni Rds.

March 2013: Carl Taylor, 31, died after being struck on his bicycle by a car near the

intersection of Breezes and Pages Rds

October 2011: Melvin Longworth, 69, died after colliding with a car on Hills Rd

May 2011: A 77-year-old man died after his bicycle collided with a car on Main North Rd,

near the Christchurch Northern Motorway

Alice West, 20, Canterbury University student. I think it

is a lot safer compared to when I first got here. Roads are

now a lot more developed. But I haven’t noticed a huge

change in the cycle lanes. There are also some places in

the city where I won’t cycle. I don’t like Riccarton Rd. I

have also had a few incidents on the Port Hills with the

tight roads. But it hasn’t stopped me from cycling around.

Ryan Hall, 20, Canterbury University student. Cycle

safety in the city has improved a bit since the earthquakes.

Obviously with the road damage a lot of people

are driving around the city more carefully. There are still

definitely some places I wouldn’t cycle. Places such as the

highways are not safe. But I do like the ledges on the Ilam

Rd, they make cycling a lot safer.

Miyu Uchijima, 22, Canterbury University student. Yes, I think it is a lot safer for cycling

around the city. I am from Japan and we don’t have a lot of cycle lanes and have to go through

busy roads. Some roads in the city are still bumpy and I have to be very careful. But I do

think cycle lanes have improved a lot since the earthquakes. The ledges up on Ilam Rd for the

university students have made cycling along some of the roads a lot safer. For the most part, I

find it safe enough to cycle around the city.

Wood mill dangerous

Historic site

must be

secured

• By Andrew King

WOOD BROTHERS Mill in

Addington has been issued a

dangerous building notice after

suffering numerous fires and

vandalism, and will be fenced

off either today or tomorrow.

The police, fire service, city

council and owner John Cameron

met last week to discuss a

plan to tackle the safety issues.

It was damaged in the

September and February earthquakes,

which resulted in it

being red-stickered.

The dangerous building notice

for 14 Wise St was issued under

the provisions of the Building

Act 2004.

It will be fenced off to restrict

access to the site and the city

council requested the sprinkler

system be re-commissioned to

allow firefighters to extinguish

fires without entering the building.

The fence will remain, while

DANGEROUS: Wood Brothers Mill in Addington will be fenced

off to prevent people getting in. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the dangerous building declaration

is in force.

Mr Cameron said the sprinkler

system, while not compliant,

is back up and running.

He has also agreed to block

off any other entrances to the

building.

City council head of operational

policy and quality improvement

Robert Wright said

Mr Cameron has undertaken

to clear the site of any materials

lying about that could pose

a fire risk or otherwise prove

dangerous as well as blocking

the entrances.

“This includes windows,

doors, and other openings

where a person might gain

access inside the building,” he

said.

Investigation into

mix-up with prisoner

A PRISONER left in a

Christchurch Men’s Prison

exercise yard past lock-up was

due to a failure to follow correct

procedure and has sparked an

investigation.

The prisoner was left in a secure

exercise yard while waiting to

be inducted into a unit and was

missed during the head count at

lock-up time. All prisoners in the

unit were apparently accounted for.

He was discovered in the yard

between 6pm and 7pm by corrections

staff moving between units.

The incident in June has triggered

an internal investigation by

Corrections.

Prison director John Roper said

placing prisoners in an exercise

yard on arrival is normal procedure

until staff are able to induct

the prisoner into the unit.

“Corrections undertook an initial

fact finding review of this

incident and all staff fully cooperated

with that review,” he said.

A review of prisoner reception

and lock-up procedures has been

completed with a number of

changes made that are designed

to reduce the chances of a similar

incident occurring in the future.

A wider operational review

is planned to identify whether

any other lessons can be learnt

that will further strengthen our

processes.

The security of our facilities

is paramount and at no time was

there any risk to public safety,” he

said.

Mr Roper said he cannot

comment in more detail while

the operational review is being

carried out.

Protection for police dogs

• By Andrew King and

Sam Pickering

SAFER: Senior Constable Lyal Bayliss and his dog Nox are the

first in Christchurch to trial a specially-designed stab-resistant

multi-purpose harness.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

POLICE DOG Nox is the first

in the city to trial a specially

designed stab-resistant multipurpose

harness.

He is one of 10 dogs throughout

the country who have been

fitted with the Mako harness

this week, which is layered with

polymer panels to shield the

vital organs from stabbing and

slashing.

Nox’s handler Senior Constable

Lyal Bayliss said it was a great

addition due to the nature of the

work he and his partner get into.

“It helps when he jumps over

fences, goes into buildings and

comes up against sharp objects,

as well as protecting him against

offenders who potentially have

weapons,” he said.

The robust design is made from

mil-spec nylon and trelleborg

material which does not absorb

moisture and also gives the animal

protection from blows and

kicks, similar protection to an officer

wearing their stab-resistant

body armour vest.

Senior Constable Bayliss is no

stranger to offenders having a go

at his dogs.

“One of my first dogs, an offender

tried to stab him with a

craft knife,” he said.

The harness, designed by

Hamilton-based specialist Sabre

Tactical NZ, weighs just over 1kg,

meaning it won’t impair agility

or speed, dries quickly and can

be worn throughout a shift.

The remaining 120 harnesses

will be rolled out to dogs across

the country within the next three

months.

Problem drinker figures

fuel for bar owners

• By Gabrielle Stuart

NEW FIGURES showing people

drinking at home cause more

problems for police than those

at bars, prove bars should not be

closed earlier, according to their

owners.

More than half the Cantabrians

arrested last year after

drinking had been doing it at

home, new police figures show.

Fewer than one in five had

been drinking in a public place

or at a function.

About 30 per cent could not

remember or say where they had

been drinking.

Trevinos owner Marty Fuller

is one of many bar and restaurant

owners who have been

fighting the proposed Christchurch

local alcohol policy, which

would force most bars, pubs,

clubs and licensed restaurants to

stop selling alcohol at 1am.

The policy is due to be debated

in a Ministry of Justice Alcohol

Regulatory and Licensing Authority

hearing in October.

The figures backed up what they

had argued all along, he said.

“From day one, our submission

has been that licensed

premises are not the problem.

Most are well-run, responsible

premises, well aware of the law

and our obligation under it.”

He said the biggest problem

came from people drinking a lot

of cheap alcohol at home or in

public and then causing problems.

He believed shutting bars

earlier would make that problem

worse, as people would leave and

roam the streets.

The city council spent more

than two years drafting up the

policy, and more than 4000 people

have made submissions on it.

bars be closed earlier? Email

No parole for ‘possessed’ man

• By Kurt Bayer and Andrew King

FORMER school caretaker

Noel Batstone feels “a bit sorry”

for the man jailed for more

than six years

after a frenzied

knife-wielding

rampage across

Christchurch in

March 2012. But

believes he is in

the right place

and agrees with

a parole board decision not to

release him.

Zakariye Mohamed Hussein,

31, who was “possessed by the

devil” during a rampage across

Christchurch four years ago,

remains a “significant risk” to

the public. He requires more

psychological treatment and

rehabilitation before he can be

released from prison, the parole

board says.

Mr Batstone said that while he

could see Hussein had a “hard

life” growing up, he was in the

best possible place.

“He should stay inside a bit

longer . . . he had to see his relations

being killed back home,

so I do have a bit of remorse for

him,” he said.

At the time, Hussein’s lawyer

said he was normally a “shy, reserved,

polite’’ man when on his

medication but when he doesn’t

take his drugs, he was “possessed

by the devil’’.

Pie delivery driver Marteine

Robin, who was kidnapped and

stabbed by Hussein, earlier told a

parole board hearing that the incident

had “a significant impact”

on her life.

Ms Hussein appeared before a

parole board panel for a second

time last month.

A comprehensive report outlining

Hussein’s condition, treatment

and progress, and delving

into his social and psychiatric

history, confirmed “significant

issues of risk remain for Mr Hussein

until such time as further

treatment and rehabilitation

have occurred”.

“Until such time as such work

has been undertaken, and a

report is provided to the board,

there remains an undue risk to

the safety of public and the community

such that the board must

decline Mr Hussein’s release on

parole,” the parole board’s decision

says.

It also noted Hussein’s “reluctance

to engage” in violencerelated

treatment was holding

back any rehabilitation.

The board was told that his

rehabilitation might be assisted

by more regular appearances

before them. Hussein, who arrived

in New Zealand aged 18,

is scheduled to start work with a

psychologist.

Hussein is due to be seen by

the parole board in February

next year.

The shooting drama started

about 7am on March 15, 2012,

when he was disturbed in the

grounds of Redwood School by

Mr Batstone.

Hussein chased Mr Batstone

themselves inside a classroom

and phoned police.

He then hijacked 36-year-old

mum-of-one Ms Robin’s pie

delivery van and ordered her to

drive off.

She told him to “get the f***

out” of her delivery truck, but

he responded by forcing her at

knife point to drive him across

Christchurch, then stabbing her

in the shoulder.

“I feared the worst, I thought I

was going to die,” she said at the

time.

Ms Robin eventually managed

to escape when Hussein was momentarily

distracted at a traffic

jam almost one hour later.

But the drama only escalated

when Hussein left the truck near

the busy intersection of Hoon

Hay and Halswell Rds, and then

almost fatally stabbed a city

council worker who has name

suppression.

City construction worker

Jade Lynn, 22, saw the attacker

rampaging between vehicles and

approached him with a crowbar,

striking him in the neck, and

herding him away from other

members of the public.

Eyewitnesses described Mr

Lynn as a “hero” who prevented

Hussein from attacking other

bystanders.

Hussein was only stopped

when pepper sprayed, tasered

and then shot twice by a

police officer in his shoulder and

wrist.

Inheritance hunt successful

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A SERIES of mistakes and

coincidences meant 61-year-old

gardener Andrew Scott spent

more than a year completely

unaware he had been left a large

inheritance.

He began working for his

neighbour Doreen Shearer, who

died early last year, when he was

just 13, doing odd jobs and lawn

mowing for pocket money.

That led him into a career as

a professional gardener, and he

continued to work in her garden

for most of his life.

As she grew older and developed

arthritis in her hands he

did more and more for her, feeding

her pet sheep and coming to

her rescue if birds or mice got

into the house.

When she died last year,

without children, she named

him a beneficiary of her estate in

her will.

She had left an address for

Mr Scott in her will, but one of

the numbers was wrong, lawyer

Geoff Falloon said.

“In the end the address was

only one number out, but it was

on the other side of the street.

We went down to Hackthorne

Rd and sat outside the place,

and I even checked land transfer

titles hoping to find his name.”

He had met Mr Scott before

when visiting Mrs Shearer, so he

thought he could recognise him

and make contact at the funeral.

But Mr Scott had to miss the

funeral, because he had a medical

appointment.

It was a year later, when Mr

Falloon had exhausted every

other avenue he could think of

to find him, that he put a small

ad in the paper.

Mr Scott said several of his

friends contacted him about

the advert, so he went in to the

lawyer’s office, dressed in his

work clothes.

He will not know exactly how

much he was left until the house

is sold, but when he was told

roughly how much he could

expect he was left speechless, he

said.

“It took a while to get my head

around it. I thought I might get

like that. I was in shock,” he

said.

He did not plan to let it

change his life much.

He works for himself, and said

he had no desire to stop working

as he enjoyed what he did.

He was considering using

some of the money to pay off his

mortgage, and gifting some to

charity.

Decision

looms on look

of Lyttelton

buildings

• By Bridget Rutherford

LYTTELTON COULD soon

have a panel that will help

oversee what can be built there

and how new buildings will look.

The city council will decide

today whether to approve the establishment

of a Lyttelton Design

Review Panel for an 18-month

trial period.

It comes after residents Brent

and Ann Stanaway tried to build

a new home on the corner of

Sumner Rd and Oxford St in

2012, but had their design rejected

by the city council because

it was not suitable for the heritage

precinct.

The panel would be made

up of four Lyttelton residents,

with some form of urban design

qualification, to help review any

new build resource consent applications.

It would then write a report

on the plans, which would be

reviewed by the city council’s

Urban Design Panel.

The concept is similar to the

Akaroa Design and Appearance

Advisory Committee.

EDITORIAL

Dalziel v Minto

UNLESS SOME of the usual

suspects come out of the

woodwork today, and tomorrow

when nominations to stand in

the local body elections close,

the city’s mayoral race is down

to a two-horse war.

Sitting mayor Lianne Dalziel v

John Minto.

On paper Dalziel is a red-hot

favourite, just like three years

ago when her only threat/contender

was central city business

spokesman and former advertising

sales rep Paul Lonsdale.

She beat him convincingly, but

Lonsdale was never going to be a

serious mayoral chance anyway.

It was probably a smart move

on Lonsdale’s part to stand for

mayor though. It gained him

the publicity and profile for

the votes needed for him to be

elected as a councillor.

But Minto appears to have no

similar aspirations to be a city

councillor; he is putting all his

eggs into the mayoral basket.

Dalziel has become the centreist

moderate. The former trade

union official and long-time

Labour MP who fought National

hard in the debating chambers

during her days in Parliament

has former senior National MP

Philip Burdon at her side.

He was one of her mayoral

nominees in 2013 and again this

year.

Dalziel hardly ever criticised

the performance of the Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery

Authority when it was directing

and dictating the aftermath of

the quakes during her first term

as mayor.

She also has very rarely had

critical words about Gerry

Brownlee, the Government minister

leading the recovery.

Dalziel’s silence in this area

has been surprising, given the

level of criticism from other

power players in the city.

The only inference that can

be drawn by this is that she has

been happy with the Government’s

handling of the recovery.

But the rebuild has been

agonisingly slow in a number of

areas, which has impacted on

the city’s economy – tourism

being a key example.

However, this is unlikely to

have much impact on voters,

the majority of which are now

through earthquake issues and

looking to the future.

Cantabrians prefer conservative,

steady as she goes mayors

who get things done behind the

scene. In this area Dalziel and

her council have excelled.

They have managed to finally

get a good outcome to the earthquake

insurance payout debacle;

and as a result Christchurch’s

financial situation has improved

dramatically.

This outcome cannot be

understated enough. It gives the

potential sale of the city’s assets

some much needed breathing

space and relief in the short to

medium term for ratepayers who

could have been facing dramatic

increases in rates.

Minto will no doubt polarise

voters because of his role in the

protest against the 1981 Springbok

tour.

Christchurch was a hot bed of

protest at the time and no doubt

he will gain votes because of

that. But he will get no support

from the strong rugby fraternity

here.

Minto is campaigning against

selling off city assets like the airport,

port company, Orion, Red

Bus and City Care, which he will

pick up votes for.

The mayoral contest is under

way. Let the battle begin.

Readers respond to the

possibility of resident

parking permits to alleviate

parking issues around

suburban streets

Jenny Glasson, of Ilam:

Fully support this initiative, it’s

the only fair way to compensate

living close to the university.

We have traditionally been penalised

by living close, and now

just have parking ones side.

However, all that side is

completely taken up now with

tradespeople parking while work

is completed on the campus. By

6.45am the street is full.

We are penalised if we have

tradespeople to undertake

repairs in our homes. The

university needs to provide

parking on the campus, that’s

another issue however, it was

unfair to limit parking for

residents.

To go into service centres and

organise cones for special events

is impractical. This initiative

is in place in other centres, I

believe in Wellington.

Bob Broughton,

of Riccarton:

It is welcome news that this

issue has been taken up. Over

the years the residents around

Riccarton Bush and Kilmarnock

St, some with 120 parking, have

repeatedly suggested resident

parking permits but have been

This in spite of presenting

photos of cities like Auckland

and many cities overseas showing

areas with resident parking.

One of the issues on parking

is the failure of businesses to

provide a realistic level of parking

for staff thus forcing them

to park all day on residential

streets.

Another is the naive planning

concept of one parking space

apartments in the south Riccarton

area are occupied by several

people, each having a vehicle

$20,000 for a new-build.

The proposed city plan also

allows for taller commercial

buildings in commercial areas

such as Riccarton which increases

the number of workers and thus

will exasperate the traffic and

hence parking problems.

The university also contributes

to parking problems in surrounding

streets. The restricted parking,

P120 or P60, does have positive

benefits. It prevents the all day

high density parking with vehicles

parked on or even over driveways

making it difficult and dangerous

for residents to exit their

properties. In my area it allows

for visitors to local residences, as

well as providing parking for those

wanting to nip into a business or

for lunch and for Riccarton Bush

activities.

The issue here is that there are

those who persistently abuse the

time limit and park all day. The

city council does not have

enough staff to patrol all such areas

and the odd fine is still cheap

parking.

Perhaps a three strikes and

then increased fine might assist.

However, in the end, alternatives

to alleviate stress on parking need

to be found.

Registering tradespeople vehicles

with the city council for all day

parking certainly worked well

when we had repairs being

carried out on our house. I would

certainly support the call for

resident parking permits across

The smoking ban has failed

A reverse effect may well happen

if the ban goes ahead, where

patients may be deterred from

The rigid root cause as to why

patients end up in a mental

health facility I doubt would

have little to do with ‘smoking’.

Tobacco is not illegal – nor

is the freedom of choice. Ultimately,

it is the patient’s right to

they are Crown-guaranteed, they

Christchurch Regeneration

Aim to make

housing affordable

OVER THE last four weeks,

while Parliament was in recess

Andrew Little spent time on the

ground in Christchurch seeing

first-hand what housing needs

in Christchurch and Canterbury

look like.

Andrew knows full well that

our current housing crisis is not

confined to Auckland.

The Labour team and Andrew

have toured the city and visited

some exciting organisations and

people hell-bent on actually getting

homes built.

We visited with Habitat for

Humanity and met with people

who lives have been changed by

having the chance to get into

their own home. We heard firsthand

about the improved health

benefits for the children in this

family of a warm and dry home.

We’ve visited large new

housing developments such as

Wigram Skies and well-done

developments, that offer a range

of price points and are designed

to foster communities in their

new neighbourhoods.

Where we all differ from the

current Government is that we

understand that the current

development models won’t provide

the impetus needed to get it

cracking. A Labour government

will.

We’ve also seen the technology

that will allow Labour to

achieve its Kiwibuild vision of

building houses at the scale, pace

and affordability required. The

Concision Factory in Rolleston

is a joint venture between Span

Build and Mike Greer Homes

that specialises in offsite manufacturing

of houses. These are

prefabricated homes that are

built and assembled in a factory,

then shipped to the site. Each

house is different but the process

greatly speeds up the time it

takes to build a home.

With a major Governmentbacked

programme like Labour’s

Kiwibuild plan, techniques like

this will let us drastically reduce

the cost of building homes.

Recent statistics show that

since 2010, house prices in

Canterbury have jumped 36 per

cent. That’s pushing home ownership

out of the reach of many

families.

This is a problem that seems

to have completely escaped the

current government – they were

recently defending the $900,000

price tag of apartments in the

East Frame Development as “affordable.”

Clearly, their definition

is a little bit different to the

average Cantabrians.

So it’s clear that if we’re going

to get affordable homes for families

in Canterbury, we can’t settle

for a business as usual approach.

We need fresh thinking and new

ideas. Luckily, Cantabrians have

that in spades.

Canterbury spokeswoman

The controversial smartphone app Uber is creating serious

competition for conventional taxi businesses. The Star asked

people whether they had used the service and how they found it

or, if they hadn’t used it, whether they would consider doing so

Sam Wilshire,

of West Melton,

builder: “I haven’t

used it but I would.

I find it amusing

that watching

Border Control and

stuff on TV, they

are always going

along and busting

people who have

got no immigration

status, no working

permits, who are

driving taxis anyway.

So realistically,

shouldn’t we be

reflecting on the fact

that the people who

are licensed with

Uber are actually

citizens and the taxi

drivers, nine times

out of 10, aren’t? So

Uber drivers have

possibly got more

right to be working

in New Zealand?

Spencer Travers,

of Avonhead,

engineer:

“I haven’t used it

but I think I would

try it. I think for me

the convenience of

the nice phone app

they have is quite

useful, being able

to see where they

are. I have found

traditional taxis

quite unreliable and

quite hard to get

an answer out of as

to when they are

going to show up,

especially if it is a

Friday or Saturday

night. So I guess

you’re trading off

a bit of certainty

for not having

the professional

background checks

and so on.”

Alisha Ward, of

Ilam, unemployed:

“I haven’t used

Uber. I might

consider using it

but I have my own

car and restricted

licence so I don’t

really need to use

a taxi or anything.

The [lack of]

background checks

would be a concern

because I don’t

really want to hop

in a car with some

strange person who

I’ve only just talked

to. Really, a taxi

driver feels safer.

But the price side is

different and it is a

big thing, especially

for students and

I was recently a

student myself.”

Cushla Jordan,

retired dairy farmer,

of Avonhead:

“I haven’t used it.

If I had the app, I

think I probably

would use it if

it was going to

cheaper than the

others, but I’m quite

conflicted about

competition. I am

always unhappy to

see people [such

as taxi drivers]

being undercut

and, as a former

participant in our

primary industries,

for New Zealand I

understand what

undercutting can do

so I feel for the taxi

drivers.”

Kia ora, Christchurch

Kia ora, readers of The Star. I am Jin Zhijian, Consul General of the People’s Republic

of China in Christchurch. I am pleased to inform you that from this month on, the

Chinese Consulate General will open a column in The Star on the second Thursday

every month, releasing news about the Consulate General, important events hosted

by the Consulate General and the local Chinese communities, introducing Chinese

traditional culture, and expressing views on issues of common concerns.

In this first article of the column, I would give a brief introduction of the Chinese

Consulate General in Christchurch.

In June 2010, the Chinese government reached consensus with the New Zealand

government on opening the Chinese Consulate General in Christchurch. The

process of establishing the Consulate General was scheduled to start in May 2011.

However, a heavy earthquake hit Christchurch on February 22, 2011, and 185

people including 24 Chinese students lost their lives in the disaster. The Chinese

government and people stood side by side with the New Zealand government and

people at this difficult moment. The Chinese government sent a rescue team and

provided humanitarian assistance to Christchurch immediately. The establishment

of the Chinese Consulate General was accelerated rather than delayed. The advance

team arrived in Christchurch in the week after the earthquake, taking an active

part in the rescue and relief work. It was very difficult at the beginning, as the staff

even had trouble with food and accommodation. With the help of people from

all walks of life, the Chinese Consulate General officially opened on December 2,

2011 after more than half a year of hard work. “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”

I would like to express sincere gratitude for the support from the city council and

people of Christchurch.

Our consular district covers the whole South Island, Steward Island and Chatham

Islands. The Consulate General comprises of Policy, Consular & Visa, Commercial,

Educational and Cultural Sections. The Policy Section deals with exchanges

between China and the South Island on the local level and handles media affairs.

The Consular & Visa Section is responsible for passport and visa services, and also

provides consular protection for Chinese citizens. The Commercial Section focuses

on promoting economic and trade cooperation between China and the South

Island, as well as giving some guidance and assistance to the Chinese enterprises

in our consular district. The Educational Section concentrates on the educational

exchanges and cooperation at different levels between our two countries, promoting

Chinese language teaching and serving Chinese students. The Cultural Section is

responsible for the cultural exchanges and cooperation between China and the

South Island. For further information, please visit our website: http://christchurch.

chineseconsulate.org/eng/.

Since its opening, the Consulate General has been actively engaged in promoting

exchanges and cooperation between China and various places in our consular

district, and strives to provide quality and convenient service to all circles of life in

New Zealand, thus becoming a new bridge connecting China and the South Island.

I took my post in Christchurch in September 2014. For nearly two years, I have

witnessed the rapidly developing relations between China and New Zealand,

especially with the South Island. I have made many Kiwi friends, all of whom have

taken great interest in China, and expressed enthusiasm and high expectation for

developing Sino-New Zealand relationship, which is a great aspiration to me.

The cooperation between China and New Zealand has reached an unprecedented

extent at present. China has become the largest trading partner, the largest origin

of overseas students and the second largest origin of overseas tourists of New

Zealand. Thanks to the vigorous development of Sino-New Zealand relationship,

the cooperation between China and the South Island has kept growing in fields like

economic and trade, education, tourism, culture, local exchanges and Antarctica

cooperation, marking an active phase of friendship between China and the South

Island. I am confident that the cooperation between China and the South Island,

especially Christchurch, would keep yielding new outcome with the joint efforts

of both sides.

All work bays 1/2 price for August only.

Besides setting up a column in The Star, the Chinese Consulate General will also

broadcast documentaries about China on Canterbury Television (CTV). Roof of

the World as the first run would be on show from August 13 (Saturday).

The documentary has six episodes (repeated Tuesday 9:30am and Thursday

2:30pm) and is trying to depict the relationship between people living in Tibetan

Plateau and the nature. It will focus on the incredible and unique nature state,

continuous and erect snow mountains, rich and productive land steps, cyclical and

round stream, soil and nature, animals, plants and men coexisting and surviving

together on earth. I believe you will enjoy it.

Nick Inkster

From backyard beer baron

Twelve years ago, Nick Inkster was pouring beers for his

mates at a hand-made bar in his New Brighton backyard.

Now the former carpenter scooped three awards for his

new bar – OGB in Cathedral Square – at the Christchurch

Hospitality Awards. He spoke to Bridget Rutherford about

what makes a good drinking hole

So Nick, congratulations

are in order after you received

three awards on Friday, how did

you feel when you won?

I was just humbled and overwhelmed

that people in Christchurch

were behind me and the

whole concept of OGB. It was

awesome; we’ve only been open

three months.

‘I built a bar in

my backyard in a

house I had in New

Brighton, and then

just dreamed of

owning a proper bar.’

So how many

awards did you

take home?

We were nominated

for two,

then we took the

award. One of the

trophies was gold,

and they wanted to

me to go up and do a speech, and

I had to ask, what’s this one for?

Three months isn’t very long

to have been open to pick up

three awards, what do you

think it is that got you there?

I think people just love my

story. I’ve had three months in

hospitality, I’m not from a hospitality

background, I’m a carpenter.

I just wanted to bring some

heritage back to Christchurch.

How long were you a

carpenter?

Well I’m 32, and I’ve been

a carpenter my whole life. I

started in Christchurch then I

worked overseas for six years as

a carpenter in Western Australia.

I had a vision

to open a bar in

Christchurch and

I moved home in

November and had

the lease locked in

in June. Location is

everything.

How did you go

about getting the

lease in the old Government

building?

Well, three years ago I bought

an apartment in the building. I

wanted that location for the bar,

but I didn’t know how to get into

it. I found out that the owner was

going to lease it, and I already

had my business plan done. I had

want to open in the Square?’ But

I said it’s about a destination.

to award-winning bar boss

BACK IN THE DAY: Nick got his first taste of bar-tending 12

years ago, when he made a bar in his backyard.

Did you host a lot of people

at your home-made bar?

Once a month we’d have parties.

I had the bar set up and

we would have DJs and live

music. From there, I just enjoyed

hosting people. That was

in 2004, then from that my old

man always said he could see

me owning a real bar. He passed

away two years ago and that gave

me a lot of motivation to keep

going. He knew I was planning

it. I’ve got his name up behind

the bar on an old wooden sign

that was on our fence gate. Just

after the quakes they moved out

to Amberley and I fixed it onto

Mum’s letterbox. It’s got R.D.

Inkster on it. It suits the whole

décor of the bar.

Oh cool, so what’s the fit out

of OGB like?

I just wanted to complement

the building. It’s a 1913 building

so I wanted to stick around that

era. I’ve also got a 1946 Austin 10

car there, so it’s that whole Peaky

Blinders theme. I’ve been collecting

instruments for years for the

bar, and they are all on display.

I wanted to have that theme, I

love live music and I wanted to

complement that with the instruments.

So do some of your mates

from your backyard homemade

bar come into OGB now?

Yeah, we all meet once a

month. They come into the

bar the first Thursday of every

month. They can’t believe it really,

but I do believe it, because I

worked so hard to get here. But

there’s no such thing as can’t.

Do you have locals that come

in all the time?

Yep, we’ve got the locals that

come and sit up at the bar and

have a pint at 11am. It’s got a real

London style, English corner pub

feel that people feel at home in

when they are inside. It’s a cosy

space. My whole concept was to

create that timeless old bar in

initials on it.

position at

OGB.

central Christchurch that also

had a bit of live music. I wanted

Christchurch to have that. I

wanted to create something

timeless.

So what sort of work were

you doing when you were a

carpenter?

Over in Western Australia

I was working in oil and gas,

so building gas plants. Here in

Christchurch I was building

houses and commercial buildings.

Do you miss building?

I’m loving what I do now, but

it’s just about getting that balance

of staff, because at the moment

I’m having to be on the floor every

day. But I definitely miss the

tool belt, I wake up some

mornings and think it would

be good to go and build something.

And what do you do in your

spare time, if you have any?

At the moment I don’t have too

much spare time. But I just love

photography, that’s a big interest

of mine. I love my rugby, I’m

a Linwood rugby boy. I went to

Shirley Boys’ High and I helped

manage the Linwood colts team

this season. I thought about putting

the boots on but thought I

would wait until next season. I’ve

been part of the Linwood club

for over 10 years.

Light show thrills family

IN SPITE of the prediction of

sub-zero temperatures (and

my huge aversion to the cold!)

I knew that this was an event

not to be missed.

Last Sunday evening, I

rugged up my two big girls

and headed into Hagley Park

to mingle with thousands of

other Christchurch kids at the

spectacular Botanic D’Lights

show.

As an intended surprise,

I hurried my five and sixyear-old

girls through dinner

and then dressed them up as

if they were heading to the

snow – thermals, ski pants,

gloves, balaclava, thick socks,

winter jacket and a must-have

torch. They were bewildered

with what was going on, and

wondered why they were set

to leave the house looking like

miniature Michelin men.

But they didn’t fuss – they

were more focused on the fact

they were heading out into the

dark rather than joining their

little twin sisters for stories

and bed (though the twins

weren’t so happy about that).

With the city council predicting

up to 8000 visitors, I

anticipated a slow trip and lots

of time in traffic. I set an intention

to get a rock star park

as close as possible and so

crossed all appendages, drove

straight there, and found that

the parking pixies were on my

Melissa McDonnell

side.

We managed to find a spot

just down from the entrance.

Great start. The girls shrieked

as they hopped out of the car

to see lights flickering onto the

museum buildings, lighting

up the trees and shooting into

the sky. My five-year-old was

so excited I thought she might

faint – after all, she’s only

been out in the dark a handful

of times, so this was off the

charts.

As we wound ourselves

around the paths and through

the throngs, we discovered a

disco rink which got our wee

party started. The girls set fire

to the dance floor as the lights

synced to the musical beats –

they were in heaven.

Further along we were

treated to a genius lighting

feat. A series of projections

had been set atop a bridge

which beamed beautiful lights

into the sky while creating

captivating reflections in the

dark waters of the Avon River.

This extremely clever creation

combined technology with

nature to invent a phantasmagoric

experience which was

nothing short of mesmerising.

The magic continued as the

path provided a beautiful fairy

garden; an archway of lights; a

giant screen nestled in a pond

which projected evolving light

creations; and clever interactive

displays which invited

the crowds to get amongst the

fun. There were bubbles to be

chased, cubes to be rolled and

light canvases which came

to life before our eyes. Pure

brilliance.

As we came to the end of

the circuit, the girls were

flying high. In spite of the

freezing temperatures, their

cheeks were flushed and they

were oblivious to the cold.

They wanted so stay longer,

and managed to negotiate one

last boogie at the disco before

reluctantly heading to the car.

Getting home after 8pm on

a school night is pretty rare

in our household, so it was

straight to bed and lights out.

I could hear them giggling

and comparing their favourite

displays, and proclamations

of this being “the best night

COLOUR: Bright lights

entertain children in the

Botanic Gardens.

ever”. Yet there was silence

within five minutes. Two tired

and happy girls right there.

So a big thanks to the city

council for hosting such an

amazing event. It’s awesome

to be a part of a city that is rebuilding

and reinventing itself

with such a technologically innovative,

family-friendly and

altogether fun community

experience. We can’t wait for

next year!

HEAT PUMPS

FOR EVERY SPACE

Looking to invest in a heat pump, but not sure

which model best suits your home? HPAC has a

wide range of Daikin heat pumps for every space.

If you have wall space that isn’t impeded by furniture, a Daikin L

Series floor console is your best bet. The L Series draws cool air

from the bottom of the room and sends warm air out at the

same low level to have it naturally rise. You’ll feel every bit of heat

they provide. Also available is Daikin’s new Nexura floor console,

which features a small radiant heat front panel to provide two

types of heat.

If you’re aiming for optimal energy efficiency, the Daikin Ururu

Sarara (US7) range includes New Zealand’s only 7-Star rated heat

pump in the FTXZ25NV1B. Energy efficiency isn’t the only thing

that this flagship range of heat pumps provide. They are able to

humidify and dehumidify the air.

If you’re after a stylish option, we suggest the European

designed Daikin Zena high wall series. Available in White and

Silver, the Zena features a sweeping curved front. Slim and quiet,

the FTXJ25PVMA is able to run at a low 19dbA. The Zena is

sophisticated with a built in Wifi Module to allow the system to

be operated away from home on the owner’s device.

For the budget-conscious, the classically styled Daikin Cora

Range is smaller than the P Series high wall range and more

efficient. The Cora is available in the full range of sizes from a

small 2.7kW model to a 10.3kW model.

If entire home heating is what you need, Daikin offers a large

range of Central Ducted and Multi Split heat pump systems that

can be customised to your home.

Get in touch with HPAC today to see which heat pump best

suits your needs.

Gardening

Add colour with chrysanthemums

• By Tod Palenski

NOT ALL flowers are created

equal. Some don’t like to be

picked. Some don’t flower easily

or for a couple of seasons.

Some require lots of ongoing

maintenance.

Fortunately, chrysanthemums

are not like some flowers. They

are easy to grow and their flowers

are long-lasting.

If you like to have colour

in the garden and flowers

in your home, stop buying

flowers and grow your own

chrysanthemums. There are three

varieties of chrysanthemum I

like. One is merry mix, which is

also known as love daisy, it grows

to a height of 50cm and produces

single flowers in a lovely

combination of tri-coloured

blooms.

The other two varieties are

snowland and moonlight which

will grow to a height of 20cm and

are good for growing in cooler

climates.

Snowland produces single

flowers with white petals and

a striking yellow centre, and

moonlight produces all over

yellow single flowers.

Chrysanthemums like welldrained

and dry soil with

plenty of lime. This means

they grow well with plants like

roses, lavender, bedded irises

and gypsophila as they all like

the same conditions. If you’re

planting tomatoes in a month or

two and want to add some colour

around them you could try

planting chrysanthemums there

too as, again, tomatoes like the

same growing conditions.

Chrysanthemums will grow

well out in the open but they

also like to be planted next to the

house as the soil there typically

has quite a lot of lime from the

foundations of the house.

Another place these colourful

flowers grow well is hanging

baskets. Try planting our

snowland or moonlight varieties

in the middle of a basket and

VIBRANT:

Snowland

(left) and

moonlight

are popular

choices.

then strawberries around the

outside. The strawberries will

hang over the side for easy

picking.

When you’ve got your

seedlings, dig in some compost

or organic matter to the soil first.

This will provide the plants with

some food to keep them going.

Then plant each one about 20cm

apart from the next. Plant merry

mix chrysanthemums a little

further apart at 30cm.

Because they like it quite dry,

they don’t need much watering.

In fact, if they’re watered too

much they become susceptible

to getting rust. Pick off the dead

heads to encourage more flower

growth.

And enjoy your colourful

garden and home.

GUARANTEE

Diana Noonan checks out what gardeners from all walks of

life wish they’d known a whole lot earlier.

THINGS I

WISH I’D

KNOWN

SOONER

From: Tiff, total

newbie, ex-

Dunedin now in

Vancouver

COURGETTES

As a total newbie to gardening, I ignored

the significance of cooler night-time

temperatures, especially in spring, and

almost killed my courgette plants. Early

planting can also be a cause of pollination

problems as there are not so many bees

around in early spring.

I’ve learned not to give my courgette

plants too much attention. I went around

pinching off what I thought were dead

stems but it turned out I was picking off

fertilised flowers that were getting ready to

turn into fruit! I now know that blossoms

wither away after being pollinated.

SOIL COMPOSITION

The make-up of your soil is really

important. I now test the pH level of my

soil using vinegar and baking soda – a

crude but easy method.

From: Finlay,

vegetablestall

grower,

Owaka

CARROTS

Carrot rust fly like to live and breed in

willows. I wish I’d know this before I used

willow as my shelter belts!

YAMS

Yams need plenty of water during the

months of December, January and

February.

Male courgette

flowers, which

won’t set fruit,

can be picked for

use in cooking.

From: Val Robertson, alpine lover,

Timaru

HEPATICA

If you want your hepatica to flower, don’t

cover their crowns! An alpine lover, I grew

hepatica for many years without success

until I learned this lesson. Now I mulch

around, but not over, the plants.

PULSATILLA

To get pulsatilla to flower when you live

in a damp climate, cover the plant with

a glass in spring to keep off the rain.

This keeps the moisture off the hairy

buds, which soon rot when they become

waterlogged.

GENTIAN

Learning how to get my Gentiana acaulis to flower was a rather expensive exercise – I

first had to travel to Italy! I saw it growing wild in the Dolomite mountains and now,

three times a year, I give mine a good coating with dolomite lime and water it in.

Flowering is no longer a problem.

GARDENING GUIDE

Potatoes

The first time I grew potatoes was for a work

competition. We were each given three seed

spuds and a sack to grow them in, and told

to use any product Oderings sold, to see

who could grow the most. After 90 days, we

all lined up and tipped out our sacks, and I

thought, “Really, it can’t be this easy,” but it

was.

Potatoes are an easy-to-grow vegetable that

can be grown in the garden or pots or other

containers, and with just a few months until

Christmas, now is the time to plant them if you

want a Christmas dinner harvest.

Growing potatoes in the garden can take up

a bit of space, and many gardeners forgo

growing them for this reason. There are ways

around this in the form of planter bags, pots,

sacks, and containers.

Potatoes are a warm-season plant and are

very susceptible to frost. Most gardeners

prefer to plant potatoes between July and

September, and plant a second crop again

in January or February, but in colder areas,

planting time is generally restricted to August

through January. Potatoes are adaptable

to both light and heavy soils; however, good

drainage is essential.

Oderings sell certified seed potatoes, which

means they are free of viruses and disease.

There are plenty to choose from, so look at

your local Oderings Potato Board and choose

one based on your taste buds and harvesting

time.

Tips to Remember:

• Watering regularly will promote smooth,

well-developed potatoes.

• Most potatoes are ready for digging after

90-100 days.

• If storing potatoes, allow the tops to

completely die off before harvesting,

discard any damaged spuds, and store in a

cool, dark, dry place.

• Pest and diseases can affect potatoes, e.g.,

aphids, blight, and potato moth. Consult

your local store for correct diagnosis and

control agents, but use Neem Granules as

a general pest control for any veggies in the

garden or pots.

• Potatoes sometimes get a scabby skin;

normally caused by a lack of calcium in

the soil prevent it by incorporating gypsum

when planting.

• Not all potatoes flower, so if unsure, wait for

the maturity date before harvesting, or until

the foliage tips start to wither and die.

• Sheep pallets.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE PRESSURE was on as Blake Haines

set out his equipment and ingredients,

preparing to battle some of the top young

chefs in the country for the National

Commis Chef of the Year title.

That was when he got that sinking

feeling: He was missing a crucial

ingredient.

In the rush to catch his flight to

Auckland at 5am that morning, he had left

his salt sitting on the bench at home.

The chefs competing had to bring all

their own equipment and ingredients to

the competition from their seasonings

to their pots and pans – which made for

some funny looks when going through

bag checks at the airport, he said.

It was too late to buy any more, so he

just had to work with what he had.

But he went on to win gold for his main,

an Akaroa salmon duo, half pan-fried and

half wrapped in nori seaweed and cooked

in plenty of chicken stock to make up for

the missing seasoning.

Winning a national title was incredibly

satisfying, he said.

He had dreamed of becoming a chef

since he was about eight-years-old,

cooking meals for his family – then things

like spaghetti bolognese or chocolate chip

biscuits, he said.

“My family were good critics, although

my mum never appreciated the mess in

the kitchen,” he said.

At about 14 he got an after-school job

washing dishes for a local restaurant, and

from there he was hooked, he said.

He worked for a while in Dunedin

and at the Hermitage Hotel at Mt Cook,

before moving to Christchurch with his

girlfriend early this year.

He knew Chillingworth Road owner

and chef Darren Wright through his work

on the Culinary Olympics NZ squad, and

said he wanted the chance to work with

him.

His main role at the restaurant was as

pastry chef which, he said, was something

he had always enjoyed.

“For customers, the first thing they try

is the bread and the last is the dessert, so it

either ruins or makes someone’s evening.

Hopefully they are the two things they

remember most,” he said.

After seeing Blake’s work in the

competitions, Olympic squad member

and Christchurch chef Mark Sycamore

asked him to travel to Greece with him

in September this year to compete at

the WACS WorldChefs Congress as his

commis chef.

But, although he hoped cheffing could

open doors for more travelling in the

future, he said he always planned to return

to New Zealand.

“We both love Christchurch and there’s

lots going on, so many new restaurants

opening and places to dine, so there are so

many opportunities here.”

Fashion

Costume designer

• By Annabelle Dick

A ST ALBANS stamp shop

worker will have her creations

thrusted into the limelight

after being selected to show

at the World of Wearable Art

Awards.

The garment Filigreen,

designed by Cushla O’Connell,

39, has been selected for

the Weta Workshop costume

and film section of the show.

“It’s pretty exciting. It’s my

second year. I had

a costume on stage

last year, but it’s

still really exciting

to have it on

display to so many

people,” Miss O’Connell said.

The garments have been

kept strictly under wraps until

the show in Wellington on

September 22.

But she said her garment is

pretty extreme and designed

to have an impact.

“We’re under hush, hush,

but I was inspired by the silhouette

they were wearing in

the baroque era. It’s not close

fitting – it has volume so it’ll

have presence on stage from

afar.”

EXPRESS YOURSELF: Stamp shop worker Cushla O’Connell works away to create

wearable creations.

She used upholstery fabric

for the one-colour costume

and a flexible wire called

fish tape to create the shape.

The construction was full

on. I had to do a lot of construction

before I could move

onto the decorative layer,”

Miss O’Connell said.

This is the second time she’s

been chosen for the WOW

show after her garment was

selected in 2015.

“Last year, I used leather to

create my first garment.

I dabble in all sorts of crafts

and arts. I’m all over the

place – I’m not happy just

The Star

creating one type of work,” she

said.

She studied fine arts at Canterbury

University and considers

herself more of a creators

than a designer.

“I’m not so much into fashion

but creating. I work at a

rubber stamp shop.”

Miss O’Connell works at

Rubber Stamps by Montarga

where she crafts stamps, creating

images and taking classes.

“It’s nice to have a job that’s

creative.”

Designers were handpicked

from all over to world to make up

the final 133 garments that will

show.

Miss O’Connell is one of five

Christchurch people chosen to

show at this year’s WOW awards

show.

“Being up against the rest of the

world in a show that keeps growing

each year is scary,” she said.

“I’m just happy to have my work

on stage – you don’t get the opportunity

to show in front of such

renowned people often.”

The competition runs from Friday

September 22 to October 9.

Dressing for a cold winter

Fashion writer Annabelle

Dick gives some tips on

dressing for winter and how

to incorporate summer

fashion trends into your

wardrobe

IT SEEMS to be the season

where everyone is jetting

overseas for an European

summer.

Snaps of sun-kissed girls in

white and baby blue sun dresses

in Santorini are scattering

my Instagram feed like no

tomorrow. Meanwhile, I’m over

here feeling like three layers isn’t

near enough to step outside.

I can’t help but feel jealousy

wash over me when I see my

friends flaunting two-pieces on

the shores of Portugal’s most

beautiful beaches – it makes me

want to pack up my summer

clothes and jump on next flight

out.

But winter does have its perks

when it comes to dressing.

When it’s hot, wearing next

to nothing is the only option,

but when winter comes around,

more experimenting can be

done.

I find it easier to express my

style on colder days because

I can play around with more

pieces and I can finally drag out

my trench coat that only gets

three months of daylight each

year.

If I need a taste of summer,

I change my colour palette

accordingly.

This season has seen a lot of

whites, creams, beiges and blues.

Where Yu Blong

Wendy Dunlop takes us on a virtual tour of these majestic islands.

ImagIne an archipelago dotted

with golden sands, lush jungle, active

volcanoes and ancient cultures. If this

sounds like your perfect winter hideaway,

in the words of the locals, “Yu blong

in Vanuatu!”

Just three hours from new Zealand,

Port Vila is the hub of Vanuatu and

located on the main island of efate.

Visitors will find agreeable resorts around

the sparkling erakor Lagoon or northern

coast, with facilities focused on relaxation

in a tropical climate.

Choose a room, suite or bungalow

with all-inclusive resort amenities

and activities that allow you to be as

active or as leisurely as you wish. enjoy

the independence of a self-catering

apartment or resort, or relax in private

paradise at the luxurious Havannah

Resort, which hosts a maximum of 34

guests at any one time.

Sightseeing on efate includes Port Vila’s

colourful history, markets and shops,

as well as an insight into traditional

village life at the Custom Village or at

the Botanic gardens. at the stunning

Cascade Falls, walkers are rewarded with

wonderful waterfalls and rock pools for a

cool, freshwater swim.

For a delightful day out, take the

tour or ferry to the marine reserve of

Hideaway Island. as well as an excellent

restaurant and beach bar, guests and day

trippers can hire snorkelling and diving

equipment to make the most of the

spectacular marine life.

There are few more appealing sights

than a lovingly restored wooden ketch

under sail on a brilliant blue lagoon. a

day aboard the Coongoola will transport

you to some of efate’s finest diving and

snorkelling sites, introduce you to a turtle

farm and provide you with a superb

barbecue lunch on Tranquility Island.

For a back-to-nature experience, you

can enjoy a romantic stay here beneath

thatched fales with the waves lapping

nearby.

Beyond Port Vila, the many outer

islands allow visitors to appreciate the

distinctive geographic and cultural

entities that make up the 83 volcanic

islands of Vanuatu. The islands of espiritu

Santo, Tanna and Pentecost are the best

known and are accessible by air Vanuatu

services for day trips or longer. There are

some wild adventures to be had there,

too!

Known as the “Sleeping giant”, the

island of espiritu Santo is a diver’s mecca.

Within clear waters, along stunning reefs,

view wrecks from World War II, when

100,000 american troops were based

here. explore million Dollar Point and SS

President Coolidge, which sunk in 1942.

Take a day trek into Santo’s interior

via a 30-metre bamboo ladder lashed

with vines that descends to a canopy of

green. Discovery millenium Cave – openmouthed

in a 15-metre yawn through

which a dark, eerie tunnel extends almost

a kilometre until you emerge into dazzling

sunlight beside the Vantar River. Sheer

walls are sculpted into magnificent shapes

and waterfalls plummet spectacularly as

you float along the freshwater canal.

Pentecost is famous for its land diving

ceremonies – forget elastic, this is the

original bungy using vines and a lessthan-scientifically-calculated

tower from

which to launch! It’s not for tourists,

however, and you only get to watch

this cultural rite of passage into male

adulthood.

On Tanna, Vanuatu’s “Island of Fire”,

peer into Yasur’s molten heart and feel a

deep rumble shudder from its depths. at

night, be riveted by its sound and light

show as embers fall around like glowin-the

dark confetti. nearby, Tanna’s

villagers shun modern comforts to live

traditionally in simple palm woven huts.

With more than 115 cultures and

languages throughout its islands, a diverse

range of activities on offer and top resorts,

Vanuatu can easily become your personal

paradise.

Plains FM in public access campaign

The Star continues

with its monthly

profile of Plains FM

FOR THE month of August,

Plains FM joins 11 other

community access radio stations

nationwide as part of a lively

awareness campaign called The

Big Listen.

The campaign will showcase

their user communities and the

radio and online content they

produce.

The Big Listen officially kicked

off last week with a function

co-hosted by Plains FM, the Association

of Community Access

Broadcasters and NZ On Air, with

the Minister of

Broadcasting Amy Adams giving

a speech endorsing the work of the

nation’s 12 access radio stations.

In her speech, the minister

said The Big Listen “is a tremendous

initiative to highlight the

importance and incredible work

done by access radio in New

Zealand. What a jewel it is, and

what a strong and important

role it has for our communities.

And if New Zealand is one

thing now – it’s diverse. There is

no such thing as a typical New

Zealander.”

CRITICAL ANALYSIS: Horizons expanding at Plains FM.

Around the country each access

station has fun events and activities

planned throughout August.

Plains FM is hosting an open day

on August 16 from 3-7pm and

invites the community to tour

the station, meet the staff and

broadcasters, and even have a go

behind the microphone.

“We also want to get out and

about into the community with

our gorgeous big ears on and

just chat to people” said station

manager Nicki Reece.

“Most people have heard of

Plains FM but many don’t quite

understand exactly what we do –

which is to provide the facilities

so everyday people in the community

can make programmes,

have a voice, share their interests

and views, and highlight their

activities and concerns as Cantabrians.”

Audio profiles of current

broadcasters and why they

broadcast on Plains FM will

be sprinkled throughout the

schedule this month. An outside

broadcast, cross-cultural and

cross-interest conversations will

happen on air and lots of images

on social media involving broadcasters,

staff and supporters,

proudly flaunting their big ears

around town, are also planned.

Research just released by

Colmar Brunton to understand

and explore how community

access radio meets the needs of

the community has revealed,

among other findings, that it

has a strong and credible community

brand, and the benefits

to the community are inclusion,

sharing, connection, belonging,

visibility and empowerment.

Another exciting development

is the announcement that a book

about access radio’s 30-year

history will be co-written by Dr

Brian Pauling and Dr Bronwyn

Bettie.

They will document the sector’s

place politically and socially

in New Zealand’s media landscape

and provide critical analysis

and commentary as to what

the future may hold for such a

diverse group of citizen-made

media facilitators and creators.

The Big Listen campaign continues

throughout August.

A musical about menopause

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LYNDA MILLIGAN says

getting older is “crap” – but

there’s no need to get down in

the dumps about it.

She, along with three other

performers, will take the taboo

subject of menopause and make

a celebration of it.

Menopause the Musical is a

fiery show staged to classic tunes

from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

“Really it is a celebration and

confirmation of women in their

lives going through menopause

and what it means to them,” she

said.

The show is set in a department

store where a sisterhood

is created between four diverse

women who realise menopause is

no longer “the silent passage”.

Milligan, 67, started her

career in the city at a time when

performing art schools were not

prolific and she was required to

learn on the job.

She first joined The Court

Theatre in 1974, and learnt under

artistic director Elric Hooper

who served at the theatre for

more than two decades.

She is now an associate of

the theatre and has a colourful

A CHRISTCHURCH duo who

share a love for creating music for

children have been recognised

in the children’s section of the

Vodafone New Zealand Music

Awards.

It was announced on Tuesday

night Jenny Payne and Lucy

Hiku’s band Itty Bitty Beats won

both the best children’s album

and best song.

Their album Lay Your Head

the top prize at the awards.

Both artists said a highlight

Most recently Milligan toured

New Zealand and Australia with

the production of Grumpy Old

Women – 50 Shades of Beige in

2014.

But a year and a half ago,

artists they had grown up listening

to including children’s entertainer

Suzy Cato.

The best song award came with

a $10,000 grant which will enable

the band to make their first music

Payne said at this stage they are

just narrowing it down to what

song they will choose to use.

Itty Bitty Beats creates practical

with songs about washing hair or

she followed her daughter to

Motueka to look after her two

grand-daughters.

After having a break to be “the

granny-nanny”, the musical has

brought her back into the theatre

with a vengeance.

Milligan is all about living life

to the fullest and said she faced

“To go there was such a treat

but to walk away with a bunch

of awards was just so incredibly

by the experience-very proud,”

Hiku said.

menopause with a positive attitude.

“It is still part of your life. I

am grateful I can still move and

sing,” she said.

The only change she wishes she

could make was to her time in

her 30s.

After a difficult relationship,

Milligan was at a point where she

had to give up her biggest passion

for about 10 years.

“I was a wife and mother. I had

three children as well. I’m not

saying it was a waste of period,

but it wasn’t the most fulfilled,”

she said.

But she said there is no point

feeling sorry for yourself.

“You have to look at it from a

positive point of view and say,

well, I did it, got back and made

the most of it.”

And now she is happily single

with a fulfilling life in theatre

and has no interest in a relationship.

“I had a toy-boy once (in the

1990s) and once you have a

toy-boy, you don’t want to have

anyone your own age,” she said.

Milligan’s goal in Menopause

the Musical is to get women to

laugh about themselves and acknowledge

the point in their life

they have reached.

As part of their New Zealand

tour, Menopause the Musical will

be staged at the Isaac Theatre

Royal from August 30-31. To

book tickets go to premier.

Warriors side unchanged for Bunnies clash

THE WARRIORS are wary of

taking their foot off the pedal

and will continue their drive

towards the NRL finals with an

unchanged line-up for Saturday’s

clash against South Sydney at Mt

Smart Stadium.

Jazz Tevaga will again start at

hooker in the absence of the injured

Issac Luke with Nathaniel

Roache set to come off the bench

to share the dummyhalf duties

as he did in Saturday’s 24-14 win

over the Gold Coast.

The 20-year-old rookies had 40

minutes each against the Titans,

making a combined total of 59

tackles, and offer contrasting

skills with Tevaga defensively

strong while Roache provides

creativity and speed to the attack.

“We defended really well as

a team against the Titans and

those guys definitely contributed

at a high level,” said coach

Andrew McFadden.

“We had a lot of confidence going

into the game that they could

do the job.

“It was a little different to the

way we’ve been playing but it’s

great that we can call on anyone

and they go out there and do it.”

Luke had surgery on Monday

after suffering a slight meniscus

tear in his right knee in the dying

St Margaret’s

Olympians

• By Bridget Rutherford

A GROUP of St Margaret’s

College old girls have swapped

their school colours of green, red

and navy for black.

Five former students are representing

New Zealand at the Rio

Olympics.

Pippa Hayward, who left the

school in 2008, and Sophie

Cocks, who finished in 2012,

are both members of the Black

Sticks.

Goalie, Amelia Gibson, is a

reserve for the team.

Holly Greenslade and Olivia

Loe are both reserves in the rowing

team after coming fifth in the

pair final at a World Rowing Cup

in June.

St Margaret’s executive principal

Gillian Simpson said the

school was really proud of the old

girls.

She had seen them go through

school and play in representative

teams.

“I think every single one of

them had a dream to represent

their country.”

Each athlete had won significant

sports awards when they

attended the school, before going

on to represent New Zealand, she

said.

Hayward, Cocks and Gibson

all received a player of the year

award at different times while

they were at school, as well as a

number of other honours.

Greenslade, who left St Margaret’s

in 2013, won most promising

rowing novice, rower of the

year twice, as well as overall

sportswoman of the year.

Loe, 24, was also named

rower of the year, as well as rugby

player of the year, taking after

her father – former All Black

Richard Loe.

Loe said the Olympic experience

had been amazing so far.

“To be surrounded by so many

different athletes from different

sports, as a reserve, it’s a great

way to see your first Olympics,”

she said.

“It’s pretty incredible to have so

many girls here from one school,

and I think it shows a lot about

St Margaret’s, they always taught

OLYMPIANS: Loe and

Greenslade (top left) are

Olympics, while Gibson,

Hayward and Cocks are in

Rio with the Black Sticks.

me to set my goals high.”

She hopes to make the rowing

team again for the 2020 Tokyo

Olympics.

The Black Sticks play their last

pool games against the Netherlands

at 1am, Saturday, and

China at 11.30am, Sunday.

St Margaret’s will hold a fundraiser

to watch Sunday’s game

to raise money for its hockey

programme.

DO OR DIE: Christchurch BHS don’t want a repeat of last year’s

UC Championship semi finals, which saw them beaten 17-25 by

Shirley BHS.

Semi-final time

• By Gordon Findlater

IT’S DO or die this Saturday

when the UC Championships

top four sides meet in the

competition play-offs.

Christ’s College will host last

year’s beaten finalists Shirley

Boys’ High School, while

Christchurch Boys’ High School

host Moascar Cup holders Nelson

College.

Anything achieved over the last

14 rounds of the competition will

mean nothing.

Christchurch BHS know this

through last year’s experience

after they suffered a shock loss on

their home turf to Shirley 17-25.

“Any signs of complacency that

may have been there last year will

certainly not be there this time.

It’s still recent enough memory

for those kids that were involved

last year,” said Christchurch BHS

coach Mike Drury.

Christchurch BHS and Nelson

College met back in May producing

a six all draw at Nelson’s

Trafalgar Park.

“It was a day where both sides

defended really well. The down

side for them is having to come

down here. Whenever a side has

to travel it makes it that much

tougher,” said Drury.

The coach believes his side

has had the perfect preparation

coming into the finals with tough

win’s over St Andrew’s College

and Shirley. The team will be

without prop Isaac Roth, who

suffered a head knock against

Shirley. However, Brad Wang will

make a timely return after missing

two months of rugby.

The winner of the game will

play either Christ’s or Shirley in

next weekend’s final. It will be a

special atmosphere when Christ’s

host Shirley. The match will be

the first UC Championship semifinal

the school has ever hosted.

The two teams met on July 23,

when Christ’s took the honours

33-10

“Playing them on Upper [field]

is always a tough task, we will

go into the game with nothing

to lose. We’ve achieved our

goal of making the top four so

anything from here is a bonus,”

said Shirley rugby administrator

John Fox.

Peugeot’s hot hatch

with a difference

• By Ross Kiddie

PEUGEOT SPORT was set

up in 1981 as a mechanism

to further the company’s

participation in global motorsport.

It had mixed success

across a wide range of

forums – rallying, formula

one, touring car and sportscars.

As a company it probably

feels it deserved better

results given the investment,

but its success is probably

better measured through

the influence it has had on

Peugeot performance cars

destined for the road and

mainstream buyers.

Peugeot Sport today is

largely the performance

arm of Peugeot per se, and

it lent its name to the two

new-generation hot hatchbacks

just released on the

New Zealand market. The

Peugeot 308 GTi and GT are

both seriously good sports

cars at affordable prices,

the GTi lists at $58,990 and

$49,990 respectively.

While both can certainly

be categorised as hot hatchbacks,

there is a fundamental

difference between the two.

Regular readers will recall

my evaluation of the GTi in

these columns in ??. It is an

enormously powerful, petrol-fuelled

model which has

just a 1.6-litre engine, but is

rated at an amazing 200kW.

It is fast, and quickly became

one of my favourite drives

thus far this year.

But I had no sooner taken

that car back to the dealership

after evaluation when

I picked up the GT, and it,

too, is another surprise. The

GT is a four-cylinder diesel

model, and paired with an

automatic transmission.

Before you are left wondering

how that could be

treated as a hot hatchback,

the reality is that it is.

Elsewhere, the Peugeot

GT gets much the same kit

as its GTi stablemate, and

shares the same five-door

body style with body styling

little different. The GT has

the onboard detailing which

promotes the sporty image,

and sitting on the 308 platform

is a realistic everyday

hatch for when passengers

need to be carried.

I’m not saying it is a true

five-seater, there are three

seat belts across the rear, but

it is a comfortable vehicle for

four adults only, however,

PEUGEOT 308 GT: High performance diesel engine.

ride quality for those who do

travel in the GT is sublime.

That’s been a Peugeot legacy

for many years, the handling/comfort

compromise

isn’t jeopardised in either

direction.

I took the test car on

exactly the same high country

loop which I chose for

the GTi. The road to Lake

Coleridge Village is one of

my favourites for a performance

car, and the GT with

its fully independent suspension

reacts well to sudden

direction changes and forceful

entry into a quick corner.

Riding on sticky Michelin

Pilot tyres (225/40 x 18in),

there is direct turn-in and

unyielding grip from the

rear.

to push towards understeer,

but the traction control network

isn’t invasive and you

can feel the point where the

limits of traction are bordering

on being lost. That

being the case, the handling

experience is left largely to

the driver to decide when to

push harder or to back off.

Providing the punch is

a 2-litre, turbocharged,

twin-camshaft, engine, it is

rated by Peugeot at 133kW.

While this may seem like

a huge power difference to

STYLE:

The

Peugeot

308 GT

shares

looks

with the

GTi.

the 200kW of its stablemate,

bear in mind that the diesel

has a broad and consistent

spread of torque (400Nm)

available at just 2000rpm.

Add in the heightened

engine management protocols

at the touch of a button

– the sport mode remapping

device – the GT bursts into

life providing performance

figures almost uncharacteristic

for a diesel.

Peugeot claim an 8.4sec

standstill to acceleration

time, and a top speed

of 220km/h. It will also

scamper to 120km/h from

80km/h in 5sec, the generous

mid-range turbo boost

and torque supply providing

the driver with encouraging

accelerator feel.

The combination of power

and handling is fabulous,

the GT is nimble, agile and

responsive. While the term

GT relates to something

more grandiose (grand touring),

the diesel 308 certainly

fits into the category of

high performance cruising.

It reacts willingly to driver

input, and when it is working

hard it doesn’t overly

taunt the senses; there is an

angry growl and throb, but

the diesel harmonics are

subdued.

And as much as you

belt the 308 GT along, it is

doing so with little fuel use.

Peugeot also claim an amazing

four-litre per 100km

(70mpg) combined cycle

average. That relates well

to the 5.5l/100km (50mpg)

figure during my time with

the test car. Incidentally, a

4l/100km instantaneous

figure is also available at

a steady 100km/h (engine

speed 1650rpm).

As much as I admire

and respect the incredible

power outputs of the

petrol GTi, if I was a hot

hatchback buyer I’d be

looking seriously at the

diesel. You can have just

about as much fun, yet save

$9000 in the process.

Either way you are

getting a fabulous driving

experience built with the

values that Peugeot have

been providing in their hot

hatchback models for as long

as I can remember.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?

Check out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

We can take care of the details when it comes to managing your

Topic is death

Local musician, Dizzy Height is proud to

announce the completion of his latest

recording, Passing Shadows.

“It's safe to say that this album is very,

very different and deals with a topic not

many are game to talk about let alone record

an album about, and that is the subject of

death,” says Dizzy Height. “Having worked

as an Embalmer/Funeral Director for 9

years I have seen a lot of death. The

inspiration for the album is based on my

many experiences.”

Consisting of nine tracks, the recording is

said to be a very thought provoking and

inspiring CD.

Written, performed, and produced by

Dizzy Height, the tracks feature a unique

blend of classically inspired pieces infused

with traditional rock guitar.

From the opening title track 'Passing

Shadows' to the final track 'After Life' the

album has a positive theme which

encompasses all the things that most people

have thought about at some stage.

For more information go to

www.dizzyheight.com

Experience a

relaxed evening

in conversation

with musicians

from your national

orchestra

The Chamber Room of

Canterbury's exciting new home for

music and the arts, The Piano, will

play host to this exclusive event. Enjoy

canapés served with the winemaker's

selection of Craggy Range wines while

you hear the stories of some of New

Zealand's finest musicians.

NZSO Section Principal Trombone

David Bremner will host the evening.

He will be joined by a panel of NZSO

players: Brigid O'Meeghan (Assistant

Sub-Principal Emeritus Cello); Peter

Dykes (Associate Principal Oboe);

Larry Reese (Section Principal

Timpani); Andrew Thomson (Section

Principal Second Violin).

The players will discuss the rest of

the NZSO's 2016 season in

Christchurch, the additional activities

of the orchestra, as well as offer a

unique insight into the world of a

professional orchestral musician.

This is a rare opportunity to hear

from, and chat with some of New

Zealand's finest musicians in an

intimate and inspiring setting.

In Conversation with the NZSO

takes place at The Piano on Armagh

St next Thursday 25th August. See the
