Jesse’s trip to Disneyland

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD Jesse

George thought he was having a

regular check up when his care

worker Paul Graham came to his

house yesterday afternoon.

Mr Graham handed the

Chisnallwood Intermediate

student a letter, and smiled as he

said: “I’ve got some bad news for

you.”

Jesse looked confused, but his

face lit up when he read the letter

– he’s going to Disneyland.

Jesse was born with Duchenne

muscular dystrophy, a disorder

that affects about one in 3500

boys. It means it is hard for him

to carry out every day activities

as his muscles are slowly breaking

down.

But thanks to Koru Care

Christchurch and Air New

Zealand, this time next month,

he along with 23 other children

with serious and ongoing medical

issues will be taken on the

adventure of a lifetime.

Jesse said he is looking

forward to everything, but he’s

most excited about visiting Disneyland

to see his favourite movie

character, Darth Vader.

“I hope he’s there [Darth

Vader]. I also really like LEGO,

toys, YouTube . . . so I’ll try and

get lots of toys over there,” he

said.

Details

of anchor

projects

report

revealed

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A REPORT on the anchor

projects the Government

refused to release to the city

council was handed without

question to Labour MP

Megan Woods.

The due diligence

report on projects like

the Convention Centre

and sports stadium was

asked for by the city

council, which has been

trying to assess what

cost liability for the projects

it may have in the future.

But the Department of Prime

Minister and Cabinet, which is

overseeing the rebuild, refused

to release the report on the

grounds of commercial sensitivity.

Dr Woods’ office requested

the report under the Official

Information Act in April, but

it was not provided until last

month. The response, which had

parts redacted, was signed off by

DPMC director Kelvan Smith.

In May, Mr Smith

refused to give the

report to city council

chief executive Karleen

Edwards.

Dr Woods passed it

onto The Star this week.

Dr Woods said there

was no reason the report

should have been kept

from the city council.

“It certainly should have been

shared in a strategic partnership,

especially as council is

having to grapple with this as

they will be responsible for running

of some of these projects

and have to bear the costs,” she

said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

Inside

News.....................................3-17

YOU SERIOUSLY have to

wonder what’s going on between

the Government and the city

council.

Last week we revealed the

Department of Prime Minister

and Cabinet refused to release a

report to the city council on the

anchor projects, on the basis of

commercial sensitivity.

It was a clear snub to the city

council wanting to get a better

insight into what lies ahead for it,

and ratepayers cost-wise, when

they inherit the running of big

ticket items like the Convention

Centre and sports stadium.

A week on, the city council

still hasn’t got the report, but The

Star has, courtesy of Wigram

MP Megan Woods who accessed

it via the Official Information

Act.

DPMC director Kelvan Smith

confirmed yesterday that the

report still hasn’t gone to the

council. He has changed his tune

from a week ago when he said

it was because of commercial

sensitivity. Now he says the

report is outdated.

For the big projects to progress

the city council is going to have

to start fighting back.

The French gravy train

Hospital board

chief sent

• By Shelley Robinson

CANTERBURY District

Health Board forked out more

than $65,000 to send its chief

executive to a French business

school three times over five

months.

David Meates

INSEAD business

school in Fontainebleau,

September and

November of last

year and then in January.

He is the latest high level

Christchurch executive revealed

to have attended the school,

courtesy of the public purse.

The campus is sprawled across

eight hectares, nestled in the

picturesque Forest of Fontainebleau.

FRANCE: CDHB chief executive David Meates joins the list of Christchurch bosses who have

attended INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. ​

chief executive Bill Bayfield for

four weeks in 2013, while the

now defunct Cera spent $55,000

sending former Christchurch

Central Development Unit boss

Warwick Isaacs. Mr Issacs was

sent more than a year after he

left the organisation.

Mr Meates attended the

International Directors Programme

at a cost of $25,383,

which included meals, while the

remainder was spent on flights

and accommodation.

The three “seminars” ran from

September 13-16, November 23-

25 and January 14-16.

The INSEAD programme outline

says it equips attendees with

the fundamentals of director

and board effectiveness, CEO

oversight, as well as crisis and

performance management.

Transport cost was on average

$11,648 per trip, including business

class flights. Accommodation

at INSEAD cost about $700 per

stay with meals. A further $179

was spent on additional meals.

The INSEAD trip is included

in the $180,000 Mr Meates spent

on travel since July 2010. This

also includes his travel expenses

as chief executive of the West

Coast District Health Board.

About $70,000 in total was

spent on international travel,

including trips to the United

States, Hong Kong and Australia,

for conferences or presentations.

The CDHB is facing huge

financial pressures, and is

struggling with the increased

mental health needs of the postearthquake

population and a

large rebuild programme, while

delivering a $1.3 billion budget.

The CDHB remuneration

and appointments committee,

comprised of chairman Murray

Cleverley and elected members

Steve Wakefield and David Morrell,

suggested the course and

approved it.

The remainder of the board

were not told until December

that Mr Meates had been to

France.

Mr Meates earns between

$570,000 and $579,000, according

to State Services Commission

data from 2015.

Details of anchor projects report revealed

•From page 1

She was worried by the

millions of dollars the report

revealed had already been spent

on projects like the Convention

Centre and sports stadium, and

questions over central city roading

projects.

The report includes information

that the new stadium may

not make enough to cover

running costs, questions over

whether roading projects could

be completed and a failed plan to

expand the Bus Interchange.

Dr Edwards wrote to Mr

Smith personally in May asking

for the report, saying city council

staff needed the information

urgently to help with their work.

Mr Smith told The Star

yesterday he was not aware of

Dr Woods’ request when he

responded to Dr Edwards.

By the time he signed off

the release of the report to Dr

Woods last month, he said

information in it was outdated

because of further work done by

Ōtākaro Ltd.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel yesterday

refused to get drawn into the

debate and declined to answer

questions about whether it would

affect the city council’s relationship

with the DPMC.

She said it was an issue that

“sits with the organisation”, so

better answered by chief executive

Dr Edwards.

Dr Edwards said she was satisfied

with updates on the projects

at regular meetings.

“Due to the close relationship

we have worked hard to develop

with the Crown agencies, and

our ongoing collaborative work,

timewise the information requested

was no longer needed.”

But Ms Daziel’s mayoral rival

John Minto said it showed the

Government was treating council

with “thinly veiled contempt”.

Ms Dalziel needed to “stand

up”, he said.

“If the mayor won’t comment

I think it shows she is exactly

where Gerry Brownlee wants her

– under his thumb,” she said.

In Brief

FUNDRAISING RIDE

Sarah O’Keefe and her mother

Lynne will head off on their

Tranz Alpine Scooter Safari

journey on Saturday to raise

money for the NZ Cancer

Society. The pair will be among

250 people to ride the 250km

from Christchurch to Hokitika

on scooters. Sarah, 32, was

diagnosed with hodgkins

lymphoma, about 10 years ago

and since then has fought off

the disease three times. So far

they have raised more than

$2700.

NO LEGAL ACTION

Legal action over the $50

million McKenzie & Willis

development on High St has

been withdrawn after the

developer, 181 High Ltd, agreed

to limit retail tenancies to a

maximum of 150sq m. City

Centre Christchurch Ltd, which

includes several prominent

developers and business people,

had sought a judicial review

over resource consents granted

for the area, which it argued

was not intended to be used for

retail. The case had been set for

the High Court in February.

Food and beverage outlets

would not be subject to the

restrictions on tenancy size.

NEW SUBDIVISIONS

Large residential developments

throughout the city will go

ahead later this month as part of

the Christchurch Replacement

District Plan. Subdivision

developments will go ahead

in South Masham, near the

Yaldhurst Masham residential

community; on the surplus land

on the western part of Riccarton

Racecourse; and at Prestons;

Yaldhurst and Wigram. Six

further subdivisions will be

built in the northern, southern,

south-west and south-east areas

of Halswell and Hendersons.

The time frame for the

developments is still to be

confirmed by the city council.

CERA’s anchor projects and

As the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority

wound down last year, it commissioned Deloitte to

outline the work it had done on the city’s anchor

projects in a report it could hand over to the agencies

managing the next phase of the rebuild. Large parts

of the report were redacted before it was released

to Labour MP Megan Woods under the Official

Information Act, but the rest revealed details which

have been kept under wraps until now. Reporter

Gabrielle Stuart outlines them

MORE THAN a third of the $45.7

million CERA spent developing

the Avon River Precinct went

into planning and “definition” of

the project – it sucked up $16.3

million of the budget.

The precinct includes the Margaret

Mahy Family Playground,

The Terraces, Victoria Square

redevelopment and the North

Frame community spaces and

garden.

According to the report, it

spent $15.9 million in the “planning

phase” of the project, and

more than $400,000 on the “definition

phase”.

It spent $29.4 million on the

“execution” of the projects, which

included $13.9 million on the

Margaret Mahy playground, $7

million on the Terraces, $2.9 million

on in river works and $4.3

million on “delivery management”.

The $45.7 million does not

include the cost of land, which

added up to more than $19 million

for the North Frame section

of the project, and $23 million for

the playground section.

The total budget Government

set aside for land, design and

construction of the project was

$89.2 million, but that was raised

to $116 million last year.

CLEANING UP asbestos and

other contamination on the

site of the planned Convention

Centre could cost up to $5.6m,

even before building work starts.

Asbestos was found at “a number”

of locations within the site,

the report revealed. Of those,

four had levels above the guidelines,

so the contaminated material

would need to be removed,

treated or encapsulated.

Other kinds of contamination

on the site meant parts of the

land was “below human health

acceptance criteria”, it said.

The $5.6m budget to deal with

it was based on a “worst case estimate”,

if all the contaminated

material had to be removed and

dumped.

The total budget and scope

of the project is still under

wraps, after the break down of

the planned partnership with

Plenary Conventions, which is

made up of the Carter Group

and Ngai Tahu Property.

The Government contribution

to the project was capped at

$284m.

Six full pages of the report

were censored, and large portions

of text redacted on a

further five pages.

But it revealed more than

$74 million had already been

spent buying and clearing land

in the two city blocks between

Cathedral Square and Armagh

St, which were set aside for the

project.

A further $5.5 million was

spent on things like planning

and design during the partnership

with Plenary Conventions.

A PLAN to build and rent out

commercial spaces within the

Bus Interchange was scrapped,

because uncertainty over its

future put businesses off.

The Lichfield St side of the

building was designed so

it could be extended up to

three storeys high, and space

was included for commercial

buildings behind the

interchange.

CERA approached private

sector companies to see if

they would be interested in

moving into the space. But

according to the report, they

were not interested because

of “uncertainty over the longterm

ownership of the Bus

Interchange”.

The interchange was built

by CERA, but a decision over

whether the Government,

council or a private partner will

run it long-term has not yet

been made.

The report also revealed it

cost CERA $1.5 million per year

to run the interchange.

Some of the costs may

be covered by rental of the

five shop spaces inside the

interchange, but the amount

that brought in was redacted.

spending revealed

The cost of running the old

city bus exchange in the year

before the earthquakes was

$1.15 million, but the actual

cost to the city council was only

about $440,000 per year once

rent and other returns were

factored in.

Although the exchange was

built without the extra commercial

space, the foundations

were designed so the building

could be extended if the space

was needed in the future.

THERE IS a question mark

over the future of the central

city roading plan, which laid

out changes like the 30km/h

speed limit.

The report revealed issues

with funding may mean the

project is left incomplete.

The project, An Accessible

City, is split into five stages,

with the cost of the first phase

paid for jointly with $27 million

from the city council, $18

million from the NZTA and $31

million from the Crown.

It involved road projects like

the changes made to Hospital

Corner and Hagley Ave, as well

as installation of bus stops, cycle

lanes and pedestrian crossings

within the four avenues.

But the report said there was

a risk funding would not be

found for the future projects. It

said securing the funding was

not a Crown responsibility.

“If insufficient funding is secured

and stakeholder impetus

wains there is potential for the

programme as a whole to falter,”

it said.

The city council has set

aside $101 million for the

project in its long-term plan,

but that is not expected to be

enough.

If the project faltered that

could have flow on implications

for the success of other anchor

projects, the report said.

Many of the changes were

designed to manage changing

traffic flows as the major projects

were built.

CERA WENT ahead with

spending more than $40 million

on buying land and developing

plans for the proposed new

sports stadium, in spite of being

warned the stadium could lose

money after it was built.

The report revealed the findings

of a CERA scoping study on

the $470 million stadium project,

which was set to be built in the

central city between Tuam and

Hereford Sts.

It said even covering operating

costs, without factoring in things

like depreciation, would be a

“financial challenge”.

“Our experience with the previous

stadium in Christchurch

indicated that the stadium could

make a small operating surplus

before funding and depreciation

costs, but made a deficit after

depreciation charges (and) could

not afford to fund interest and

principal repayments on any

significant level of debt,” the

report said.

As of October last year, CERA

had spent $40.2 million on land

for the project, and more than

$130,000 in “other spending”.

The stadium was originally set

to be completed next year, but

the project was put on hold until

at least 2021.

The future of the Lancaster

Park stadium has not yet been

decided.

The city council was waiting to

make a decision until it received

its insurance payout, but the

$635 million global settlement

was paid in February.

It is now waiting for assessments

on the state of the structure

and the land it is on.

Paedophile jailed for five years

• By Kurt Bayer

A CHRISTCHURCH

paedophile who paid an

Auckland woman $300 to send

him a video of her sexually

violating a one-year-old child

has today been jailed for five

years.

Matthew Garland Kelly, 22,

was jailed for the horrific online

offending at the district court

yesterday.

Kelly’s crimes came to the attention

of police after a woman

read his Facebook chats.

Police went to his Christchurch

home two days later, on

May 9 last year, and seized a

number of computers and cellphones.

The police electronic crime

lab found a large number of

disturbing images, videos and

online conversations.

They also found Facebook

chats with a woman where Kelly

posted a number of images of

young children and babies and

described in details the sexual

acts he was going to perform on

them.

In August 2014, he contacted

24-year-old Auckland woman

Krystal Harvey.

Kelly asked Harvey to send

him photos of children wearing

nappies and also ones where

they were naked.

He then encouraged her to

make a video of her performing

a sex act on a one-year-old child.

Harvey initially stated that she

wouldn’t do that, but claimed

that Kelly threatened her if she

didn’t do what he wanted.

But she later admitted sending

the video to Kelly for monetary

gain. He paid her $300.

Kelly’s offending was planned

and premeditated, Judge Paul

Kellar said yesterday.

The judge said that Kelly

had arranged and encouraged

Harvey to commit the offence,

record it, and send him the

footage.

“She should, and could, have

said no,” Judge Kellar said.

“But the offending would

never have occurred if you

didn’t encourage it.”

Judge Kellar noted that infants

are the most helpless members

of society.

Kelly was also found with

images of naked young girls in

sexual poses, and other photos

and videos, where children were

involved in sexual acts with

adults.

There was also a video of a

woman performing an oral sex

act on a dalmatian dog.

In February 2014, he contacted

two other women online

and offered money to have time

alone with their young daughters,

both aged under five. Kelly

described in detail the sex acts

he wanted to do on her.

Kelly was found with about 70

images he had taken of himself

wearing only a nappy, as well as

eight images of animals involved

in sexual acts with children and

adults.

When questioned by police,

Kelly tried to blame another

man.

Defence counsel Andrew

Bailey said Kelly is now aware

of the seriousness of his crimes

and the harm he has caused.

He described Kelly as being

“younger than his years” and

was immature.

Kelly earlier pleaded guilty

to 16 charges, including one of

sexual violation by unlawful

sexual connection, five of making

an objectionable publication,

and 10 of possession of an objectionable

publication.

Harvey was sentenced at

Manukau District Court earlier

this year to eight months’ home

detention and 100 hours of community

work.

But the Crown appealed the

sentence and a jail term of three

years and nine months was later

imposed at the High Court.

Judge Kellar noted that Kelly

himself had been abused as a

child, and that he had been aged

19-20 around the time of the

offending.

As he jailed him for five years,

members of the public gallery

sobbed and hugged each other.

Food market

plan for city

• By Bridget Rutherford

DEVELOPER Richard Peebles

is looking to by a block of

central city land to turn into an

International-style fresh food

market.

Mr Peebles (left)

wants to develop an

indoor food market,

and has been

looking at several

sites for it.

The Star understands

he is in negotiations with

Otakaro Ltd to buy the land the

current Re:Start Mall is on for the

development.

Re:Start, which was opened

in following the February 2011

earthquake and sits on Cashel St,

was due to wind up at the beginning

of next year.

Mr Peebles said the food market

plan was “sensitive” and he did

not want to comment on what site

he was looking at.

“I’m looking for a site for a covered,

seven day a week fresh food

market,” he said.

Mr Peebles is also

Council hopefuls: Where

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT A third of candidates

standing for council seats do

not live in the area they would

represent if elected.

There are 40 candidates standing

for the city council across the

16 wards.

However, 14 do not currently

live in the ward they want to

represent.

The Burwood, Cashmere,

Fendalton, Innes, Riccarton and

Linwood Wards are the only ones

that are guaranteed to have a

councillor representing them that

lives there.

But the Waimairi Ward will not

be, because both candidates, Cr

Raf Manji and Anthony Rimell,

live outside of the boundary.

There is no legal requirement

for councillors to live in the ward

they are representing, although

most choose to do so.

Cr Jamie Gough, who was

elected to the Fendalton Ward

unopposed, said strategy had

definitely come into play in terms

of what wards people were standing

in.

However, he said it did not matter

if candidates did not live in the

ward they were representing.

Elections 16

“People need to vote for the

most capable candidate who has

a strong governance skill-set

which will add value to our city

as a whole, not vote for someone

because they live down the street

from you.”

Harewood has the most candidates

running for the council seat

out of all wards. However, three

of the five are not residents there.

Faimeh Burke, Rod D Cameron

and Rod S Cameron live outside

the boundary, while Aaron

Keown and Brian Gargiulo are

inside.

Both Jo Kane, who lives at

Waikuku Beach, and Dean

Lester, who lives just outside

the boundary, are both running

for the Coastal Ward, while Cr

Paul Lonsdale is in the mix for

Heathcote, in spite of living in

Fendalton.

Cr Phil Clearwater, who would

have been up against Cr Tim

Scandrett had he run in the

Cashmere Ward where he lives,

has opted for Spreydon.

Mike Davidson and Peter Laloli

are running for Papanui and

Halswell – where they do not live

– and Tane Apanui will contest

Hornby.

In the 2013 elections, of the

54 candidates going for council

seats, nine did not live in the

ward they were running in.

As part of the city council’s

representation review, the current

seven wards will increase to 16 after

October’s local body elections.

Each ward will have one councillor

represent it.

Cr Gough said the review

stymied democracy and may

have put off new candidates,

because many would have to go

up against incumbent councillors.

Deon Swiggs:

Lives in

Linwood,

running for

Central

“I’m literally

across the road from the

Central Ward on St Asaph

St. One side is Linwood and

the other side is Central.

With rebuild Christchurch,

that’s where the focus of

the rebuild and recovery

is going to be. There is so

much future focus on the

area, and that’s where I want

to be.”

Vicki Tahau-

Paton: Lives

in Banks

Peninsula,

running for

Central

“I think if I was a candidate

that lived in one of these

suburbs, you’d be really

fighting for it, but I have

neutrality not living in

Central. So I can listen and

understand where everyone

is coming from. I sell real

estate for a living, so I have

a good understanding of all

the suburbs.”

Jo Kane: Lives in

the Waimakariri

district, running

for Coastal

“I could live on the

moon and still see

the totally inadequate and woeful

basic level of rate-delivered

services to the whole coastal

area, including Parklands. I have

skills and experience that will

get this work done in an area

that I used to live in, and my

family live in. If elected, I will

open an office so that ratepayers

and residents can always come

directly to me and I will reside

in the area.”

Dean Lester:

Lives in Burwood,

running for

Coastal

“I do my living in

the Coastal Ward,

enjoying Bottle Lake Forest,

going to the beach and enjoying

and supporting places like

BearLion. I just happen to live

on the side of Travis Wetland.

The Coastal Ward needs to have

a good advocate that is passionate

about the key things that are

part of that ward.”

do the candidates live?

Paul Lonsdale:

Lives in

Fendalton,

running for

Heathcote

“I have purchased a

section in Mt Pleasant and am

in the early stages of planning

our new home. However, I am

one of the unfortunate ones still

working through earthquake

insurance issues. As the current

sitting councillor, I have done

a considerable amount of work

in this area over the last three

years. I have an intimate understanding

of all the local issues.”

Peter Laloli:

Lives in

Riccarton,

running for

Halswell

“Halswell’s a new

ward and it’s got rapid growth.

I’ve been on the community

board the last 15 years and I

think the ward needs someone

with experience. That had a part

in it [going up against Vicki

Buck in Riccarton]. She was

going to be hard to challenge –

there was an opportunity out in

Halswell and I’ve been representing

that area for 15 years.”

Mike Davidson:

Lives in Central,

running for

Papanui

“I did not move from

the Papanui Ward,

the ward moved from me due to

the representation review. My

decision to stand as a independent

candidate in Papanui was

because of the work I have done

in this ward as the chairman of

the community board and the

over 20 years I have spent living

locally. This is the ward I know,

have represented and want to keep

working in.”

Rod S Cameron:

Lives in Cashmere,

running for

Harewood

“I don’t think I

naturally fit in anywhere,

I’m currently living in St

Martins, but I own a property in

St Albans. I looked at the future of

the city and thought what does it

need? I spoke to a couple of current

councillors I know quite well

and they asked if I would consider

Harewood. I looked at what

Harewood meant for the city and

it included the airport, which I’m

quite passionate about.”

Faimeh

Burke: Lives

in Fendalton,

running for

Harewood

“Most areas of the

new Harewood Ward used to be

part of the Fendalton-Waimairi

Ward, which I have represented as

a community board member for

the last 12 years. With the boundary

changes, my earthquakedamaged

house in Merivale falls

outside the new Harewood Ward.

However, the rebuild of it which

has just been completed, would

provide me opportunities for

relocating within the new ward’s

boundaries.”

Tane Apanui: Lives

in Coastal, running

for Hornby

“I grew up in Hornby, I

spent my teenage years

there, played my sport

there and started off my working

life there. My experience is in infrastructure

and transport. Hornby

is the gateway of the south-west,

so I’ve got more to offer there than

in the suburb I am living, which is

South New Brighton.”

Rod D Cameron:

Lives in

Cashmere,

running for

Harewood

“Well the

Harewood Ward is new and

there’s no current councillor

that’s standing, so the voters

need a bit of experience, and I’ve

had two previous terms on the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board. I did my research and in

Cashmere people were pretty

happy with Tim Scandrett so I

didn’t want to foul in his patch.

I used to live in Harewood and

people I knew asked me to

stand there. Why would I want

to stand against Tim when I

had people screaming for me to

stand in Harewood?”

Raf Manji: Lives

in Fendalton,

running for

Waimairi

“I chose Waimairi

because I have

been closely involved in the

District Plan issues in that area.

I am not a fan of the new ward

system for councillors but that’s

what we have for now.”

Phil Clearwater:

Lives in

Cashmere,

running for

Spreydon

“My roots have

always been in the Spreydon

area where I raised my family,

established strong connections

with local community groups

and I still attend my church in

Addington. I now live in lower

Cashmere, just over 1km from

the Spreydon Ward boundary

and have represented Spreydon

residents on the Spreydon-

Heathcote Community Board

loyally for over 20 years.”

Anthony Rimell:

Lives in Central,

running for

Waimairi

“I’m standing in

Waimairi because

that’s where I grew up, got married

and first had my family. It’s

an area I’ve had a life long association

with. We moved away

when we bought our first home,

which was in an area more affordable

at the time. I could have

chosen to stand elsewhere, but

this is an area I love, and really

want to represent.”

Council does

U-turn on

Victoria St plan

• By Bridget Rutherford

A REVISED plan to retain

vehicle access on Victoria St has

jumped its first hurdle, in spite

of a petition pushing for the

original plan to make the area

car-free.

On Tuesday, the Hagley-

Ferrymead Community Board

approved a watered-down

version of the city council’s plan

to transform the street into an

“inner-city destination area”.

However, a petition organised

by climate change group,

Generation Zero, calling for the

original plan to be implemented,

has gained more than 720

signatures.

In May, the city council

announced plans to transform

the street as part of its Accessible

City chapter of the Christchurch

Central Recovery Plan to make it

pedestrian friendly.

It involved closing the street

to vehicles, with the exception

of buses and bicycles, from

Christchurch Casino to the clock

tower, and removing 50 car

parks. Shop owners in the area

opposed the plan because they

said it would kill their business.

After public consultation,

the city council proposed the

watered-down version, which

would see vehicle access retained,

and only 31 car parks removed.

The plan is scheduled to be

discussed at the Infrastructure,

Transport and Environment

Committee meeting next

Thursday. It would then make

a recommendation to the city

council.

Generation Zero

representatives would speak

at the committee meeting and

present their petition.

Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board chairwoman

Sara Templeton said the board

had a “long, robust” discussion

before recommending the new

plan.

However, she said there were

concerns the opportunity to

make a pedestrian-friendly street

could be lost.

Robbery arrests after

armed police swoop

• By Andrew King

TWO 18-YEAR-OLDS have

been arrested in connection

with an armed robbery of a

dairy on Monday.

Properties on Butterfield

Ave, Linwood, and Barton Ave,

Woolston, were targeted by police

yesterday. They were looking

for the suspects who robbed the

Kirk Rd Dairy, Templeton, with

a pistol and metal bar at about

noon.

Reuben Banks, of Linwood,

was arrested and appeared in

court yesterday charged with

aggravated robbery. He was remanded

in custody without plea

until September 22.

Another man arrested at a different

address will appear today

also charged with aggravated

robbery.

Three disguised offenders entered

the dairy. One “manhandled”

the employee from behind

the counter while the other two

targeted cash and cigarettes.

Detective Senior Sergeant Michael

Ford confirmed the search

warrants were in relation to the

Kirk Rd armed robbery.

He said reports of shots being

fired during the Linwood warrant

were false, but a diversion

device was used when entering

the address in Butterfield Ave.

A witness, who did not want

to be named, said the Armed

Offenders Squad used what

looked like a “flash-bang”

grenade before entering the

property.

The Kirk Rd Dairy is just the

latest in a long line of armed

robberies to plague the city in

recent months.

On August 29, a man entered

the Curletts Rd Dairy brandishing

a hatchet and demanding

money and cigarettes around

1pm. It is alleged the same offender

then robbed the Campus

Corner Dairy on Ilam Rd

at about 3pm with the same

hatchet.

On August 25, three men, one

armed with a pistol, entered the

Kendal Food Centre. Two of the

men took the owner into a back

room and punched him, while

the third took cigarettes and

searched for cash.

On August 15, two bars were

targeted by masked men.

The Embankment Tavern on

Ferry Rd and O’Sheas Public

House on Marshland Rd were

robbed by offenders with a

firearm.

They fled empty handed from

the Embankment but allegedly

stole more than $20,000 from

O’Sheas.

On August 9, three balaclavaclad

men entered 24/7 Buns

Bakery, Waltham, armed with a

rifle, a hammer and a bat. One

man threatened staff with the

rifle while another with a hammer

tried to open the till.

Lincoln University: ‘Dead’ in a year

• By Shelley Robinson

LINCOLN University’s vicechancellor

Professor Robin

Pollard has refused to elaborate

on why he reportedly said the

university would be “dead” in a

year.

On August 8,

Prof Pollard (left)

told staff at a

meeting “we have

one year to get to

surplus or we are

dead”.

The comment

was raised in Parliament by NZ

First MP Tracey Martin last

month.

Ms Martin asked Tertiary

Education, Skills and Employment

acting minister Louise

Upston whether she was aware

Mr Pollard had made the “dead”

in a year comment to staff.

The university has been under

dire financial pressure, after a

recorded $6 million loss in the

last financial year.

It is looking to slash “unpopular

courses’’ in a bid to save

millions.

In response to Ms Martin, Ms

Upston said there were challenges

in “returning to profitability”

for the university.

Prof Pollard did not deny he

made the comment but said it

“was taken out of context”.

He refused to clarify what he

meant and how it had been taken

out of context. He would only

say it was made “in the context

of the university’s need for transformation”.

“Financial viability is important

but any suggestion that

Lincoln University only has a

year to achieve viability is superficial

and taken out of context,”

he said.

Prof Pollard said he wanted

the university to “flourish well

into the future” and to make it

financially viable, costs had to be

reduced and revenue increased.

There have been a series of

high-profile resignations, with

five deputy vice-chancellors

resigning this year.

Prof Pollard’s lack of

communication has been

slammed by the Tertiary

Education Union.

TEU organiser Cindy Doull

said it had sent six letters to

Mr Pollard asking for more

information on the definition

of an “unpopular course”, how

it would return to surplus and

impact on staff.

He has not replied to any of

the letters.

“He just ignores them. We feel

like we are talking to ourselves.

He just doesn’t respond,” she

said.

Ms Doull said it would be

upsetting to staff to hear the

comment without Prof Pollard

elaborating further.

“It is a nightmare for people

with so much uncertainty about

what is going on. We have seen

a significant increase in anxiety

levels and depressive illnesses

. . . this has been four years of

uncertainty on top of the earthquakes,”

she said.

David Bain’s Givealittle

donations dry up

• By Andrew King

A GIVEALITTLE page to

raise $1m for David Bain is

floundering.

The page,

started in January

by Wellington

drug and alcohol

counsellor

Roger Brooking,

initially wanted

to raise $1m for Mr Bain.

“My expectations at the

start were a bit high, as

in the past opinion polls

people said he should have

got compensation,” he said.

The donations are currently

sitting at $11,730.

Government not paid Mr

Bain $925,000 in compensation.

In May 1995, Mr Bain

Getting to the root of Canterbury

By the time an average

Canterbury child turns

five, they will have

had at least one tooth

decayed, extracted

or filled. Gabrielle

Stuart looked into the

problem, and the work

local groups are doing

to turn it around

FOUR-YEAR-OLD Leah

Gibbons is proud of her sparkly

white teeth.

Some of her peers are not so

lucky.

One in every three children in

Christchurch will have problems

with their teeth before they start

school – a filling needed, or even

rotten teeth removed.

In the worst cases local dentists

have seen, pre-schoolers

have had to have all their teeth

removed.

Some pre-schoolers are already

so self-conscious about their

teeth, they are afraid to smile.

Fizzy and sugary drinks – now

often cheaper than buying water

– take a share of the blame, as

do a lack of regular brushing

or missed dental appointments

which could have caught problems

early.

But missing appointments did

not mean someone was a bad

parent, CDHB community and

public health advisory committee

member Rochelle Faimalo

said.

“A lot of the hubs are open

during school hours, which

makes it very hard for working

parents,” she said.

As a busy parent, it was easy to

lose track of when children were

due for check-ups, she said.

Part of the problem is families

falling through the cracks in the

dental system.

Pre-schoolers are supposed to

have free dental check-ups each

year, when they are two, three

and four, and then when they

start school.

BY THE NUMBERS:

•One in every three

Canterbury children will

have problems with their

teeth, from cavities to

extractions, by the time

they start school

The average Canterbury

pre-schooler will have

problems with one tooth,

a Māori child two teeth,

and a Pasifika child three

•One in every six preschoolers

had their dental

enrolments cancelled

because their family

could not be contacted –

1184 children in total.

The CDHB aims to

have 95 per cent of

preschoolers enrolled in

dental services. Last year

just 61 per cent were, a

drop from 69 per cent in

2014

Under the current system,

families are called three times

within the space of a month to

remind them of a check-up.

But if they don’t respond or

can’t be reached within that

time, they are cut from the

system.

Then unless the family approaches

a dentist, the child may

completely miss out on check-ups

until they start school.

In Canterbury, one in every

six pre-schoolers had their enrolment

in the programme

cancelled.

That was even worse for Māori

or Pasifika children.

One in every four pre-schoolers

who identified as Māori had their

enrolment cancelled, and almost

half of Pasifika children.

CDHB health board member

Jo Kane said the numbers showed

the system had been “an epic fail

in many areas”.

“This model has been around

for a long time, and I think it is

time now to ask has it made a difference?”

she said.

The children’s enrolments are

being cancelled even though

other departments within the

they were not allowed to share it

between departments, because of

Oral health concerns for

IF THE dental problems for

Motel complex

planned near

Northlands

• By Bridget Rutherford

TWO EMPTY sections, 200m from

Northlands Shopping Centre, could

be turned into motels.

Victor Chan has applied to the city

council for resource to consent to

build a 14-unit motel complex at 134

and 136 Main North Rd, including a

manager’s residence.

The complex would be made up of

two buildings. The first double-storey

building would have the manager’s

residence and garage, a reception

and three units, while the first floor

would have a further four units.

The second building would have

four units on the ground floor level

and three on the first floor, with a

deck. It would have 16 car parks, and

two cycle parks.

Previous owners had gained

resource consent for a similar motel

development in 2006. However, it

expired.

Mr Chan bought the two sites in

November. A resource management

act hearings panel will be held on

September 29 so Commissioner David

Mountford can decide whether to

grant the consent.

One of the sites had previously

housed a dairy, while the other had

a residential home on it. Both buildings

were demolished in 2012.

New use for old

council chambers

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE OLD Municipal Chambers

could be used for offices or a

public educational facility once

its repairs are finished.

City council head of vertical

capital delivery and professional

services Liam Nolan said the

project team was considering

how the building might accommodate

future uses.

Those options included

possibly returning the building

to city council offices and

conference facilities, public educational

functions or tenanted

offices, he said.

“Discussions are at an

early stage, but will consider the

building’s significant heritage

value.”

The category one heritage

building, on the corner of Oxford

Tce and Worcester Boulevard,

was badly damaged in the

September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes.

In October, $10m was

re-allocated to the building,

also known as Our City –

Otautahi, which allowed further

investigation work on how to

restore it.

Mr Nolan said currently a

number of options had been

considered and one had been

developed to a feasibility study.

The project team has been

asked to pursue further options

to secure a more “cost effective”

solution before a comparison

could be made and possibly

adopted, he said.

Parts of the building need to

be reconstructed, while other elements

need additional concrete

and steel work.

A project timeline is yet to be

determined, as was the cost, Mr

Nolan said.

The building was the first

Drug addict tearful

during sentencing

• By Kurt Bayer

A DRUG addict who stole a car

from a Christchurch drugs rehab

centre sobbed in the dock as he

was jailed on his daughter’s first

birthday.

Travis James Baillie, 25, took

the car while living at Odyssey

House Trust, which provides

therapeutic support and education

to clients with drug and

alcohol addictions.

His lawyer told the district

court that Baillie went off the

rails after his support network

was broken when both of his

parents were sent to prison.

In May this year, he took off in

a Suzuki car owned by Odyssey

House.

Baillie went on to steal two

more cars before he was caught.

This week, as his young daughter

watched as he was jailed for 27

months, Judge Jane Farish asked

him: “How many more birthdays

are you going to spend like that?”

As Baillie wiped away tears,

she added: “If ever there was a

motivating factor, it’s her, for you

to be able to change.”

He pleaded guilty to three

charges of unlawfully taking

a motor vehicle, two counts of

driving while disqualified, theft

of some petrol, and breach of his

sentence of home detention by

absconding from Odyssey House.

The court heard that Baillie

had come from a “very disadvantaged”

background.

He has an extensive Youth

Court history and has been

grappling with a chronic methamphetamine

problem.

Earlier this year, a report from

Odyssey House stated, however,

that Baillie had been making

“significant progress”.

But defence counsel David

Goldwater said the jailing of his

parents, along with the imposition

of a protection order which

prevented him from seeing his

child, had “messed with his

head”.

He then made the regretful

decision to flee the programme in

the stolen car.

Goldwater said Baillie was

“disappointed in himself” and

had apologised for the harm

caused to his victims.

Judge Farish jailed Baillie for

27 months, disqualified him

from driving until November

2017, and told him that he could

choose to live a life different from

his parents. NZ Herald

AFTER A lull in activity

over the past two years,

investors are showing

growing interest in

bare land suitable for

commercial and residential

developments within the

area surrounded by the

city’s four avenues.

Courtney Doig, an

investment sales specialist

with Colliers International

in Christchurch, says

there was a flurry of land

sales after the earthquakes

and subsequently activity

plateaued with fewer sales

– until this year.

“Buyers are motivated

by a variety of different

reasons – some are taking

the opportunity to land

bank while others have

specific projects in mind.

There’s no doubt that, as

the CBD core continues

to take shape, investors

have increased confidence

in land within the four

avenues.

“For instance, the site of

the former NZ Institute of

Management head office

on the corner of Kilmore

and Madras Sts was recently

sold at auction.

The 2813 sq m bare land

fetched $2,225,000 with

two bidders vying for the

property.”

Another land site of

8842 sq m adjoining

McLeans Mansion at 888

Colombo St has changed

hands for $5.3 million and

is earmarked in the long

term for residential townhouses.

A neighbouring

smaller parcel of 427 sq m

was subsequently sold at

auction for $470,000.

Paul Vining, Colliers’

investment sales specialist,

says the inner-city sites are

proving popular because

of the increase in city

facilities that makes it possible

for investors to have a

clearer idea of the best use

for land on offer.

The success of bare

land sales within the four

avenues is likely to fuel

interest in two other sites

Colliers is taking to auction

on September 22,” Mr

Vining says.

These are 12-16 Eaton Pl,

behind Lone Star off Manchester

St, with the parcel

in four titles covering 1688

sq m; and 404 Barbadoes

St where 2200 sq m of

vacant land was previously

occupied by Unit 6

of 1980s-designed Amuri

Record passengers for airport

CHRISTCHURCH Airport set

an all-time record of 6.3 million

passengers for financial year

through servicing the South

Island tourism market.

In doing so it pumped more

than $180 million in new GDP

into the South Island and generated

a record $31 million in

dividends for shareholders.

“Christchurch remains the

South Island gateway for international

visitors. We’ve seen very

pleasing progress this year, with

increasing international airline

capacity and high airline load

factors”, said

airport company

chairman David

Mackenzie (left).

Airline seat

availability

grew seven per

cent during the

year to 7.9 million, with several

new services starting midway

through the year. International

passengers using the

transtasman network grew seven

per cent and long-haul grew 18

per cent. The airport handled

29,000 tonnes of international air

freight, up four per cent on the

previous year.

the end of October.

Emirates will be the first airline to offer

regular scheduled A380 services to and from

Christchurch with the upgrade of the current

daily Christchurch service from Boeing 777-

300ERs.

The new service will mean the removal of the

en-route stop in Bangkok which will enable passengers

to travel all the way between Christchurch

and Dubai, with just one stop in Sydney.

The surge in capacity and the arrival of new

airlines is helping fuel a price war to and from

New Zealand.

The new Christchurch-Dubai service will cut

the journey time to Dubai and Europe by about

two hours in each direction.

Emirates is the biggest customer for the A380

and the only airline offering year-round scheduled

A380 services to and from New Zealand.

value, increase dividends, and

what can be a dynamic aviation

During the financial year the

airport company completed and

opened Spitfire Square, its new

convenience retail complex, and

opened Mustang Park, its new

tourism transport hub. It currently

has $168 million of new

investment property development

under way, which will begin

generating additional income

Singapore Airlines has used A380s on seasonal

services.

The A380s on New Zealand routes have 14

first-class suites, 76 individual compartments in

business and 399 seats in economy.

This will add hundreds more seats a week with

the Boeing 777-300 on the Christchurch route

Christchurch Airport due to

Said Mr Mackenzie: “The

board is encouraged by the

improving overall financial

performance of the business and

on-going growth in returns to

shareholders.”

The business has grown,

developed strategically and built

greater resilience in recent years,

plus the outlook is positive – all

of which gave the board confidence

to lift on-going dividend

payouts to 90 per cent.

Airport chief executive Malcolm

Johns expects continued

growth in passenger numbers in

the next year, to be in a range of

6.6-6.7 million with transtasman

airline capacity forecast to increase

by around 15 per cent and

international long-haul capacity

by around 20 per cent

“We have also seen domestic

airline capacity reach record

levels. Nor has it ever been more

connected to the big airport hubs

in Australia and Asia as it is right

now.

“Our focus over the past two

years has been to build strategic

partnerships that increase our

connectivity to the big airport

hubs – Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne,

Auckland, Singapore,

Guangzhou, Taipei, Seoul and

Dubai – which collectively

handle more than 200 million

passengers a year.”

Time to learn lessons from the quakes

THIS PAST Sunday was

the sixth anniversary of the

September 4 earthquake.

Like most Cantabrians, the

memories of that first morning

are still pretty raw. I remember

crouching under the doorway

wondering if the shaking was

ever going to stop. I remember

driving down totally empty

streets, and being utterly

shocked at what had happened

to our city.

Looking back, it really is

incredible what we all went

through. Thousands of aftershocks,

multiple major quakes,

We said:

A $9000 barbecue set in

a shipping container and

picnic tables have been installed

near New Brighton’s

whale paddling pool. The

new tables and barbecue

can be found north of the

New Brighton Library.

You said:

Rachel Ferguson - Well

done Jason Mill and all the other

positive people out there trying

to make a difference in the community.

This looks awesome! If

all the negative people commenting

got off their butts and tried to

do something positive, this world

would be amazing.

Lisa Haua - I think there will

be lots of frustration from people

waiting to use it while its occupied

as there’s only one. Cool

idea but more needed.

Megan Woods

one of the largest insurance

events in world history. An

enormous amount of disruption

to people’s lives.

But six years on, it’s clear that

we couldn’t have known that first

morning what was still coming,

how long the disruption was

going to last or how lasting the

impacts of the more than 10,000

I AM very proud of this Government’s

record on education, particularly

here in Christchurch,

where we’ve committed over $1

billion to re-developing schools

since the earthquakes.

Since coming to Government

we have increased the education

budget by 35 per cent.

We have more than doubled

spending on early childhood

education.

And we have increased spending

on special education learning

support by 30 per cent.

Between the 2010 and 2015

school years, CPI inflation

increased by 9.6 per cent. The

cumulative increase in the

education Operations Grant over

this period was over 15 per cent.

On top of the $1.35 billion

schools receive now in operational

grant funding, we are

investing $43 million over four

years to state and state-integrated

schools to support around

133,000 students from long-term

welfare-dependent families.

We are targeting the money to

these students because we know

they are at risk of educational

under-achievement.

We want to get the right resources

to the rights kids at the

right time – where it will make

the greatest difference, over and

earthquakes would be.

One thing that I hear constantly

from people, especially

around anniversaries like this,

is the desire that we learn the

lessons of what has gone wrong

with this recovery, so that we can

do better in future as a country.

With the spectre of the Southern

Alpine Fault still hanging

above the base funding.

Schools will continue to receive

$1.35 billion in operational

funding but this year there will

not be a general increase across

the board to that funding.

Budget 2016 includes the

equivalent of a 1 per cent increase

in schools’ operational

grants ($43 million over four

years) which will be targeted, as

opposed to universally allocated.

Gerry Brownlee

over us (and Wellington), we’d

be fools to think this is the last

major earthquake or natural

disaster that will happen in New

Zealand. Just last week, we saw a

major quake on the East Coast of

the North Island.

For me, there are some obvious

lessons – more funding and

support should have been made

available for mental health, especially

for young people and children

impacted by the quakes. I

think, too, the Government’s top

down, heavy-handed approach

to decision making became less

useful as time went on.

And then there is EQC. How

much of the disruption to people’s

lives over the last six years

can be put down to the mess

at EQC? In this case, I think a

full, independent inquiry is still

needed.

These lessons need to be

learned not just for the next disaster,

but for how we move forward

here in Christchurch over

the next few years. My strong

hope is we will have seen much

more progress by the time we

reach the seventh anniversary.

Megan Woods is Labour’s

Canterbury spokeswoman

Targeted education funding for better outcomes

The funding will support

students aged five to 18, who

have lived in benefit dependant

households for 75 per cent of

either the first five years of their

life, or for the last five years.

The additional targeted funding

will result in schools receiving

about $92 extra for every

student from long-term welfare

dependent families. If the funding

had been allocated universally,

it would have resulted in

schools receiving $16 for every

student.

Only a very small number of

schools are receiving no increase.

Some schools – those with significant

number of students from

disadvantaged backgrounds –

are receiving considerably more.

Lower decile schools are generally

benefiting more from the

targeted increase. This is to be

expected because these schools

have more of their students in

the target group

Ethical business

Brianne West is on a

mission to stop the

unnecessary use

of plastic bottles

through her business,

Ethique. She spoke

to Bridget Rutherford

about having Britney

Spears and Ashton

Kutcher endorse her

products, coming up

with concoctions in

her kitchen and being

one of the most ethical

businesses in the

country

So can you tell me a

bit about your brand,

Ethique?

We are the first and only

company in the world

producing 100 per cent

plastic-free body care, hair

care and face care products.

We are four-yearsold

in October, it’s going

really well. We manufacture

everything, from

shampoo, conditioner to

face care, like cleanser and

moisturisers. Our most

unusual product is a solid

self-tanning bar. It’s sort of

the first in the world that is

solid. Basically the aim of

Ethique is to have everything

replaced by a solid

product.

Where did the idea

come from?

Well, 50 million bottles

in New Zealand are

thrown away every year

just from shampoo and

conditioner, and we only

have a population of four

million. And I just thought

that was crazy. I really

wanted to do something

that had environmental

impact. I guess I got brave

enough to give it a go.

And you have a science

background don’t you?

I’ve just got a Bachelor

of Science degree from

POPULAR: Brianne West’s brand Ethique has been

endorsed online by celebrities such as Britney

Spears and Ashton Kutcher. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Canterbury University. I

did a bit of chemistry and

statistics, so that helped.

The jury is out as to

whether I go back and do

a masters degree. I would

like to do a PhD.

So that must have

helped with Ethique?

Yes, I was half-way

through my second year of

university when I started

it. I studied part-time for

a while because I was running

a business.

How do you make your

products in solid blocks?

Basically I taught myself

what the ingredients do,

why they are there and

what they contribute, and

I went that way. It was a

matter of learning about

the base ingredient and

figuring out where they

fit in.

For example the self-tanning

bar was an unusual

product, so it took about

12 months of formulating

before we even did any

testing.

wrapping, in a solid block like soap

ditches plastic

Great styles, colours, fits & service

That product was

released last summer. Everything

is solid, it doesn’t

contain any water, they

don’t have a lot of preservatives,

collating agents or

fillers. For our shampoos,

we use ingredients similar

to Trilogy shampoo. It is

salon quality shampoo.

So you’ve just reached a

milestone where you have

saved 100,000 bottles –

how does it feel?

Yes, we reached that on

Friday. That was really

exciting. Our goal is to get

to one million. I didn’t really

stop to think about it, I

was just thinking about the

next 100,000 and then the

next 100,000.

And do you make all

the products yourself

from your lab?

My mum actually manufactures

the bulk of them,

she works in our lab. I do

the formulation. I create

stuff and come up with the

new products.

And you started off

making concoctions in

your kitchen?

Yeah, in my kitchen in

my flat. There was shampoo

everywhere in my

kitchen when we moved

out.

Did you grow up in

Christchurch?

No, I grew up in Queenstown.

What brought you to

Christchurch?

University, and a boy

actually. But the boy’s no

longer in the picture.

I read on your website

you started a pet detective

agency when you

were little. What’s that all

about?

Yes. I don’t remember

a lot about it, but I do

remember I put up posters

that said if you wanted

your lost animal found we

would do it. We did actually

find a cat. I would have

been about six or seven.

Speaking of animals,

I know Ethique does

not test its products on

animals, how do you test

them?

On people. We have

about 10,000 people signed

up on our database for

product testing. We get

people to fill out forms. So

we are testing deodorant

at the moment, so we’re

looking for really active

people and we select them

from that.

How long does it take

to come up with a new

product?

It depends. If it’s a

product we’ve already got

a similar product to, then

it can be quite quick. But it

can take up to 12 months.

And I hear Britney

Spears quite likes your

products! How does that

feel?

Yeah, that was kind

of cool – and Ashton

Kutcher. He made a video

with our products in it.

They both shared it on

Facebook. We were in The

Huffington Post so I guess

they got it from there. The

day I heard about Britney

Spears, we listened to her

for the rest of the day.

Have you found you

have a lot more interest in

your products since then?

Yes, we’ve been getting

the bulk of orders

from America from these

celebrity endorsements. It’s

usually New Zealand and

Australia that we get orders

from, but it’s becoming

bigger in America now.

And when you’re not

working, what do you like

doing? Do you have any

hobbies?

This sounds really

lame, but I don’t have any

because I don’t make any

time. That really is my life.

But I do want to start playing

tennis again.

And you mentioned

your mum lives here,

what about the rest of

your family?

My dad’s here too, but

all my other family live in

England. We don’t really

go visit because it’s such

a long flight, and I’m terrified

of flying. Although

I just came back from

Hawaii for work. I like to

travel; I just don’t like to

fly.

And what are your

plans for Ethique? Do you

hope to grow the business

more?

I want it to be a global

organisation. A bar in

every shower is a bit of a

mantra for us.

And finally, Ethique is

a certified B Corp isn’t it?

Can you tell me what that

entails?

We were certified last

year. It’s basically the

highest certification for

businesses who want to

do more than just make a

profit. It has to be about

employee and customer

well-being, transparency

and all of that sort of stuff.

You have to do a test and

have a Skype interview. At

the end of that, you get a

score out of 200, and you

have to score 80. Whereas

the typical business is

at 40, we got 106, so the

highest in New Zealand.

But there are only about

six or seven at the moment.

But it’s pretty cool.

Helping Maddie

Funds build for kidney transplant

• By Caitlin Miles

MORE THAN 180 people

donned their glad rags in

support of St Margaret’s College

student Maddie Collins at the

weekend.

A fundraising ball was held at

Bangor Homestead in Darfield

on Saturday night to help fundraise

money for Maddie’s kidney

transplant.

More than $350,000 needs to

be raised in order to get Maddie

to the United States for the

transplant.

Charli Francis, who also goes

to St Margaret’s College with

Maddie, decided to organise

the ball for Maddie to help with

fundraising.

Maddie’s mum Sarah Collins

said she was “blown away” by

everyone who went and by the

ball itself.

“It was just really amazing

to see so many people there for

Maddie,” Mrs Collins said.

Maddie wore a ball dress and

had her hair and make-up done

for the evening.

“Just for the night, we got to

enjoy it and focus on Maddie.

She had a great time,” Mrs Collins

said.

She said the Givealittle page

was slowly collecting more money

and there were fundraisers

popping up around the country.

A nationwide school muftiday

will be held on September

16 as another fundraising

campaign.

So far Maddie’s givealittle

page has raised $41,563.20

towards the procedure.

Lavender: Fragrant

floral beauty

Do you have a

long-standing

love affair with

one of the world’s

most recognised

plants? Rachel

Vogan tells you

how to get the best

out of lavender

EASILY ONE of the

most recognisable

plants, lavender is a goto

perennial shrub for

many. The fragrance is

renowned for its relaxing

properties, the flowers

last for days when picked

and it is a good cut-flower

option for drying, too.

With a history that

dates back centuries, it

is a plant that has stood

the test of time. Hailing

from the Mediterranean,

where summers are hot

and winters are dry,

lavender is at its best in

a position that matches

its heritage; full sun with

excellent drainage. That

doesn’t mean it doesn’t

need any water, it certainly

does, especially for the

first few months after

transplanting out into

the garden or planters.

BEE FRIENDLY

Bees and butterflies love

lavender as much as we

do. Bees will gorge on the

flowers from sunup to

sundown, often hanging

mid-air on a flower, almost

drunk-like after their fill,

resting for a few hours

only to suck some more

nectar once they wake

up again. Be mindful

of bees when planting

masses of lavender

AROMA: Sweet Romance’ is new on the lavender

scene, and excellent for hedging.

around outdoor living

areas. In places where

children or people will be

frequenting, the bees may

not always be as welcome.

FOUR MAIN TYPES

OF LAVENDER

ARE GROWN

English lavender –

Lavandula angustifolia

This neat mound-forming

plant flowers once in late

spring and covers itself

in pungent dark purple,

blue, pink or white flower

spikes. It is an ideal low

hedge plant, for a sunny,

hot dry position in the

garden. Prune after

flowering in summer or

autumn. It is this type

of lavender that is often

used in potpourri and

for oil production.

GARDENING GUIDE

Fuchsias

If you are looking for a wonderful plant

to brighten up dark, gloomy parts of the

garden then a fuchsia should be high on

your list. This plant genus consists of about

100 species, with thousands of hybrids and

cultivars. They come in a variety of forms,

most with bicoloured ballerina flowers

ranging from red, white, pink and purple.

Although generally winter dormant, fuchsias

are frost tender with delicate new spring

growth which needs protection against frost

burn. As well as needing protection from

frost, the new growth is also wind sensitive,

so staking the plant when needed, and

placement in an area protected from high

winds is ideal. Fuchsias are a perennial which

like to grow in full or semi-shade, but they can

withstand morning sun, and prefer moist, welldrained

soil. Fuchsias are prolific flowering

plants, making it a good idea to feed them a

slow release fertiliser such as Oderings Total

Replenish, as they start to form buds, but be

careful when fertilising as too much or too

strong a fertiliser can burn them. Fuchsias

are also relatively pest free, with the

occasional issue of whitefly, aphids, rust or

mildew, but with a sensible spray program

these are easily managed.

Fuchsias are one of the few plants that

provide large, bright flowers in shade. They

are great for growing in tubs or the garden as

they come in a good height range, from 30cm

to 1m. There are also many with a cascading

habit, which are great for baskets. Fuchsias

are also a great plant to use if you want to

standardise, because they are fast and easily

grown. When creating your own standard,

pick a plant or cutting which has not had the

top bud nipped out. Plant the fuchsia and

insert a 1.2m bamboo cane close to the stem

and loosely attach the cutting to the cane.

As your cutting grows keep removing the

lateral branches and continue to secure the

fuchsias stem to the cane. When your plant

has reached the height of the cane, nip out

the top bud, this will prevent it growing any

higher and will encourage the plant to branch

out, creating a head. Keep nipping out the end

buds of these branches until it forms a neat,

balanced umbrella.

Whether you want a garden specimen, a pot

plant, a hanging basket centerpiece or to

standardise your own, these shade loving,

dancing ladies will impress you with their

delightful beauty and stunning colours.

French lavender – L. dentata

This type can almost flower

all year round. With a large

open habit, the pale purpleblue

flowers sit above the

serrated, soft grey-green

leaves. Reaching about 1m by

1m with a loose habit, it is a

good idea to trim this variety

once a year in autumn to help

the plant maintain a compact

growth habit. This variety

dries particularly well as it

has a longer stem to pick.

Italian lavender – L. stoechas

The most popular lavender,

if sales at garden centres

are to go by, L. stoechas – or

winged lavender – has brightly

coloured ears (or wings) on

the end of each stem. The

plants often flower twice or

even three times within a

season if trimmed regularly.

Flower colours vary from

intense purples and blues

to shades of pink, mauve,

dusty grey and white.

Australian lavender – L.

pinnata ‘Sidonie’

A unique hybrid, which

originated in Australia, it

features the same rich, dark

purple-blue flowers of other

lavenders, but with little or no

foliage fragrance. This midsized

shrub looks the part

and is a lovely choice as a

filler shrub in a sunny

border. It is not as tolerant

to frost as the others,

so best suited to warm,

sheltered coastal gardens.

PICK OF THE BUNCH

Plant breeders worldwide

are endeavouring to come

up with better strains of

lavender. Some become new

favourites, others disappear.

NEW ‘Sweet Romance’

This sturdy little number

has all the attributes of other

English lavenders, but where it

differs is in its ability to flower

on very young growth, which

means you do not have to

wait a season or two to enjoy

a flurry of blooms. Its intense

deep blue-purple flower spikes

sit nicely above the solid silvergrey

domes of foliage from late

spring well into autumn. The

heady perfume simply adds to

this plant’s appeal. This one is

an excellent low hedge option.

Planted en masse it will

add structure and charm to

driveways and garden borders.

It is a brilliant cut flower, too,

drying well and holding its

shape. It would be suitable for

container growing, but make

sure the pot is at least 10 litres

in capacity – that’s the size of

a kitchen bucket. Twice the

size would be better as it will

allow the plant to last longer.

The Princess’

When released a couple of

seasons ago, this superb,

compact Italian variety took

gardeners by surprise with

its sugarplum-pink frilly

flowers. Mine have survived

two droughts, neglect

and being backed over by

a trailer, so I can testify

wholeheartedly to its ability

to perk up each spring with

an array of flowers that seem

to appear continuously for

about six months. A superb

option for tubs and mass

plantings, and lovely if you

want a touch of pink in the

garden as opposed to purple.

‘Major’

With a name of such strong

connotations it is no surprise

this Italian lavender hybrid

sits at the top of the popularity

list. The dark rich-purple

flowers appear from midspring

and last through until

early summer. Then, if given

a light haircut, more flowers

will appear in autumn. A

top choice for those who

want a knee- to hip-height

lavender, it generally gets

a little too big for tubs and

planters, unless the container

has a wide diameter .

L . dentata

For those who like a pale shade

of violet, and are looking for a

softer look, the French lavender

is a wonderful option. This

plant is rarely without a flower.

However, it won’t cope with

the same amount of frost as

the Italian and English jobs,

so give it some protection.

DOS AND DON’TS

Lavender is one of those

wonderful shrubs that can

give so much joy for such

little care. However, there

are a few tips and tricks to

ensuring it maintains its shape

and vigour over the season.

Full sun is a must. Don’t

consider planting it in a shady

damp position, it needs full sun

and excellent drainage. It looks

spectacular planted in groups, en

masse in gardens, down banks

and in hedges. It blends well into

numerous garden styles, making

itself at home in both modern

and old-fashioned settings.

Lavender can live a happy

life in a container, but what is

critical to ensure its success is

to choose a large pot (ideally

twice the size of a kitchen

bucket). Even though it has a

shallow root system, it flowers

best in a larger pot. Don’t be

tempted to put a saucer under

the pot either, it hates wet

feet and the roots will rot and

FRIENDS: Roses and lavender are a striking combination.

die if left standing in water.

Regular haircuts are required

to keep plants fresh and tidy.

The trick is to cut back the

plants while they are actively

growing (not in winter), after

the main flurry of flowers in late

summer or autumn. You may

need to forgo a few flowers to

do this, but timing is critical.

Pruning at this time helps

maintain shape and promotes

a new set of flowers. Cutting

back lavender into old brittle

wood is a recipe for disaster.

It usually doesn’t regenerate

and, if cut back too hard, it

can cause the plant to die.

Lavender hates having its roots

disturbed or dug in and around.

Essentially, it is a little ticklish!

So, avoid planting anything

under lavender, not even bulbs.

In the wild it rarely competes

with anything else in the same

spot, so try not to upset it

when planting it at home.

ROSES AND LAVENDER

These two plants look fabulous

together, but essentially they

differ dramatically in what

they prefer in terms of ideal

growing conditions. Roses love

rich, moisture-retentive soil

and plenty of water through hot

periods, while lavender loathes

wet feet and moist foliage. Foodwise,

roses are greedy beggars

and lavenders thrive on the

smell of an oily rag. So, if you

wish to marry these two plants

together, you need to clearly

manage them differently. This

can be done by allowing plenty

of space between the roses

and the rows of lavenders, in

order to feed and water plants

independently of each other.

LESS IS MORE

To get the best look when

planting lavender, choose your

favourite and mass plant it.

This is better than planting a

number of different varieties.

Bold blocks of flowering

lavender are a sight to behold.

For hedges, space 30-50cm apart

(depending on the variety).

WHAT YOU

NEED

TO KNOW

When to plant

Warm and temperate

climates

All year round.

Cold climates Spring,

summer

and autumn.

When to prune

After flowering, every

season.

Plant spacing

Base spacing on how big the

plant

will grow, bearing in mind

this will depend on the

variety and its purpose, e.g.

hedges (20-30cm),

or rows.

Where to buy

Garden centres and

hardware stores both have a

good selection of lavender

plants.

The Star

Capture spring colour

• By Rachel Vogan

AS PARTS of the garden

leap into life, the heros in

my blooming world at the

moment are daffodils, tulips,

hyacinths and jonquils.

I would love to lead you to

believe that this is all through

careful planning and skill

that I have such a plethora

from which to choose, but

that’s not quite true.

The majority of bulbs I am

enjoying now were planted

by the previous owner. She

was a lady who would beaver

away in the garden from dawn

to dusk, constantly digging

In the vase

Team up these spring

beauties with strong,

bold foliage to fill out

the vase. Go-to ones

are bear’s breeches

(Acanthus mollis),

upright outdoor ferns,

variegated flax varieties

or some strong stems

of colourful willow

branches – even red

stems of dogwood.

Stems of camellias

blend in beautifully as

well, while branches of

berries,

like holly, add another

textural layer.

plants up and moving them

to another place in the garden

to enhance a vista or view.

And now, as I get to sit back

and reap what she sowed, I think

of her often. Yes, I have added my

twinkle to a few areas by planting

a few hundred bulbs, but the bulk

of what I am picking now have

been in situ for 20 years or more.

Did you know that daffodils

can last out of water for up

to eight hours before they

start to wilt and fade?

Even though I have known

this for years it always seems

mean to make them suffer, so I

place them in a bucket of fresh

water filled up to their necks.

Tulips, hyacinths and daffodil all

flower at the same time. If you

do not have room in the garden,

try them in pots.

Here we see a bunch of daffodil colours and varieties. The trick to keeping them alive once

picked is to change the water every few days and cut the bottom of the stems at the same time.

They can last up to a fortnight in a cooler room.

Add some bite to salads

RED SORREL is a, flavoursome, wonderful salad green

and vegetable.

The bright green leaves with contrasting dark maroon

stems and veins add colour and taste to salad mix or micro

mix blends.

It has the same sharp, tangy flavor as regular sorrel.

This red rascal adds flavour and depth to salads dishes,

in sandwiches or even as a pizza topping to give an

interesting combination of flavour.

Used either on its own with balsamic and parmesan,

or blended with other leafy greens, it’s a must for any

vegetable garden.

Red sorrel must surely be related to the common French

sorrel which can quickly become weed-like.

When, where and how to plant

Sow seeds in spring in trays or directly into the garden.

This plant does readily seed, so once you plant it you

will never need to buy seed again.

It prefers a moist well-worked soil in full sun. It is hardy

to frost, snow and wind.

Spring flower show

A SPRING flower show will be held during the weekend

of September 17 and 18.

Organised by the The New Zealand Alpine Garden Society,

New Zealand Alpine Garden Society, CHS Daffodil

will take place at the Woolston Club, 43 Hargood St.

Exhibits will include alpine and rock garden plants,

Study reveals rapid

weight loss food

VEGETARIANS LOSE weight

twice as fast as meat eaters,

according to a study.

It found that the fastest way

for dieters to fight the flab was

to give up meat products. They

constitute more than a third of

the average meat eater’s daily

calorie intake.

In the first month of a diet,

they lose on average 900g, while

vegetarians’ weight loss is double

that at about 1.8kg.

The difference is even more

noticeable for slimmers who quit

meat at the start of a diet – with

the first month’s weight loss averaging

about 2.3kg.

Vegetarians are said to typically

be better dieters because the

switch away from meat also leads

to people embracing a healthier

lifestyle.

The study found that vegetarians

were twice as likely to be

gym members as meat eaters and

exercise twice as much.

The study found vegetarians

were also more likely to pick

low-fat options at the supermarket

than meat eaters.

The study found vegetarians

were also more likely to pick

low-fat options at the supermarket

than meat eaters.

They are also much more likely

to pick low-fat options at the

supermarket and tend to shun

fast food restaurants – just 12 per

cent are users, compared to 39

per cent of meat eaters.

The study, involving 1000

people, was carried out by weight

loss firm Forza Supplements.

Managing director Lee Smith

said: “All our research shows that

becoming a veggie is a great way

to lose weight.

“It’s not that good lean meat is

particularly calorific but we find

that meat eaters consistently have

a higher calorie intake

because the meat they eat is

often cooked in an unhealthy

way.

“A grilled chicken thigh is just

135 calories but that shoots up

to 290 calories when it is fried by

one of the fast food outlets, with

another 300 calories if you add

fries. That is where all the damage

is done.” – Daily Mail

No more coffee

IT’S TOUGH news but

according to a new report from

The Climate Institute, coffee

could be wiped out by 2080.

Based on the report’s estimations,

if global warming continues

at its current rate, rising

temperatures will render half the

land currently used to farm coffee

unsuitable by 2050.

Climate change will also see

an increase in pests and fungi,

which will impact the ability to

farm beans at current levels and,

by 2080, wild coffee is expected

to be wiped from the planet.

This date may feel like plenty

of cups of coffee away, but as

temperatures rise, consumers

IN THE battle of the bulge,

fat-laden cheese is often the first

tasty treat to be scrubbed from

the weekly shopping list.

But research suggests that

consumers who switch to lowcalorie

alternatives may be wasting

their cash.

A study found that ‘skinny’

cheese does not lower cholesterol,

reduce blood pressure or

help to trim the waistline.

Volunteers who spent three

can expect to see their brew’s

flavour and aroma seriously impacted,

while facing increasing

price hikes as the beans become

more scarce.

“Looking ahead, it is hard to

see how consumer prices cannot

be anything but badly affected by

the projected long-term decline

in growing area and other impacts

of a more hostile climate,”

the report said.

Beyond having to find a new

morning fix, the disappearance

of the coffee plant would also

impact around 120 million

people whose livelihoods depend

on the production of coffee

beans.

Low fat cheese no better

months eating a daily portion

of regular fat-cheese, or a lowcalorie

option, saw little or no

difference in heart disease risk

by the end of the experiment.

The researchers, from the University

of Copenhagen, recruited

139 men and women with early

warning signs of heart disease

and allocated them a daily 80

gram portion of full-fat cheese

or the same amount of a lowcalorie

variety.

Fashion

The business of lending

• By Annabelle Dick

IN ANOTHER life, Mary

Outram could have been a

librarian.

In some ways she is but in the

fashion sense.

The 24-year-old Riccarton

woman has carved a niche not

by selling designer clothing –

but by lending it out.

She established a business

called Borrowed by Mary, which

allows other young fashionistas

to wear her designer-label clothing.

Her business has gained

thousands of followers on social

media.

Miss Outram lends out more

than 50 pieces of clothing, in

sizes six to 14, which are usually

worth several hundred dollars

each.

She has spent years building

up her wardrobe and saw the

opportunity to help others who

want to wear designer clothing

without the price tag.

“For me, when I was younger

you’d have to fork out money

to buy a beautiful item that you

were going to wear to a 21st or a

special occasion, but often you

can’t afford it,” she said.

“Just because you don’t have

all the money in the world

doesn’t mean you can’t wear

these $300, $400 and $500

items,” she said.

She stocks all sorts of dresses,

skirts and playsuits in brands

from Sass & Bide to Shona Joy,

Alice McCall and Camilla.

Miss Outram began the business

venture when she launched

her website in April after leaving

her retail job.

She started the business

herself and was responsible for

everything from creating the

website to gaining a social media

following and modelling garments.

Miss Outram also works in

PR and marketing and runs

her business from home where

women can try on garments

before renting them out.

“Renting has been a popular

concept for a while. It’s been

done over in Australia and

there’s some people here in New

Zealand, but when I started,

there wasn’t anyone big in

Christchurch so I saw a gap in

the market,” she said.

Miss Outram started off as a

fashion blogger in 2014, where

she gained a number of dedicated

followers.

She believes Borrowed by

Mary’s success comes down to

her investment in her fashion

blog and her marketing background.

“I think my difference is that

I’ve had this blog and I have a

sense of style. I think I know

what looks good and I’m smart

about who I’m buying for,” Miss

Outram said.

With Borrowed by Mary’s

PHYSIOTHERAPY DAY - 8th SEPTEMBER

Parkinson’s disease and

your physiotherapist

The Star

Physiotherapy –

Effective and Versatile

When a person is diagnosed with

Parkinson’s Disease the first approach

is usually to start on medications to

enhance or replace the brain chemicals

that have been depleted. Research now

tells us that starting an appropriate

exercise programme is just as important

as starting on medication and both

should be offered to people when they

are diagnosed. Exercise stimulates

the release of the neurotransmitter

dopamine and helps the brain use

the dopamine it has more effectively.

However the nature of Parkinson’s

disease means that participating in safe

exercise, that is intense enough, can be

difficult. Physiotherapists can assess a

person with Parkinson’s and help them

to implement an exercise programme

that will target their specific symptoms.

Joe is a 51 year old who was diagnosed

with Parkinson’s at age 47. He works full

time and found he was becoming stiff,

clumsy and slow and his handwriting

had deteriorated to the point that it

affected his work. Joe sought the help

of a neurological physiotherapist and

worked on an intensive programme

of physiotherapy designed to retrain

certain aspects of his movement. Joe

was able to improve all of his symptoms

and although his Parkinson’s will

continue to progress he is able to slow

some of the impact it has on his life

by regular specific exercise and selfmonitoring.

Physiotherapists can help with a

wide range of neurological conditions

including Parkinson’s disease, Stroke,

Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron

Disease and many others.

You can ‘find a physio’ on www.

physiotherapy.org.nz or your GP can

point in the right direction to find a

suitably qualified physiotherapist.

For two Christchurch women, receiving

physiotherapy treatment has made a lifechanging

difference, and demonstrates just

how versatile and effective Physiotherapy

can be.

Julie Barker suffers from bronchiectasis,

a chronic lung disease similar to cystic

fibrosis. Her regular weekly half-hour

physiotherapy sessions with a respiratory

physiotherapist has seen her visits to her

specialist reduce from every three months

down to every six months and now she only

needs to visit him yearly.

Julie is aware of her limitations but feels

that Physiotherapy has allowed her to live a

more active life, including regularly playing

tennis. Julie knows that this has made her a

healthier person and she is grateful for the

positive benefits of Physiotherapy.

Jan Kent, who has just completed

a small-group ten-week programme

designed to help those with

osteoarthritis, agrees. The former

science teacher explains that

the programme was holistic in

approach, demonstrating how

well physiotherapy combines with

other therapies. After an individual

assessment on how their arthritis

was affecting movement in daily

life such as sitting, standing, and

balance, Jan and the others were

taught exercises to do a minimum

of four times a week which took

pressure off the joints by targeting

specific muscle groups. Jan explains that

they have been “very, very helpful; I’ve

found that I have got far more flexibility

and my balance is better. It’s given me more

confidence to exercise because I know I am

exercising the right way.”

physiotherapy may be able to help with a

Theatre/Arts

Three actors – six roles

Teechers

Created by John Godber

Directed by Derek

Doddington

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

YOU WOULD think only

having three performers in an

entire play would be rather

ho-hum.

But not in this

case, with the leading

roles bursting onto

stage to produce

a highly energetic

performance.

Top Dog Theatre’s

comedy Teechers came

across exactly how it

was planned. It took audiences

on a journey of a typical high

school.

What was quirky about the

show was the three performers,

Jay Versteeg, Nikki Bleyendall

and Dan Crossen, who played

about six different characters

each, switching roles on stage

and making only minor

costume changes.

The typical school bully, a

boy who never does physical

education and another who tells

There is not a

dull moment and

director Derek

Doddington has

put together a

marvellous play’

on everyone, through to the

pompous drama teacher – every

classic school character features

in this show.

And in spite of the play being

set in the 1980s, and in the

poorer part of England, it is

relevant today, creating a feeling

of nostalgia over days causing

mischief for teachers at school

while going through the crazy

adolescent

transition.

Teechers is

a play within

a play, based

around three

students in

their final years

of school who

put on a play for their fellow

dramatists.

It centres around Mr Nixon

– played by Dan Crossen – who

ignited the students’ passion for

the stage with his idealism and

belief that all students should be

treated equally.

On a more serious note, there

was a strong message coming

through that all education

should be undertaken by caring

and engaged teachers no matter

what school you go to.

HILARIOUS: Nikki Bleyendall and Dan Crossen in Top Dog

Theatre’s latest production of Teechers.

It is particularly relevant

to Christchurch, where what

school you go to seems to almost

define your personality.

The Gloucester Room,

where the show is staged, is a

small building which provides a

rather intimate background for

the show.

The lighting by Darryl Cribb

stood out, giving life to the bare

classroom setting. The colourful

strobe lights frequently used

brought life to the show by

creating a party atmosphere.

There is not a dull moment

and director Derek Doddington

has put together a marvellous

play that is relatable to anyone

no matter what school they went

to.

Teechers is running through to

September 10 with an extended

show on Saturday at 4pm.

Let the fish give you a pedicure

• By Mike Yardley

TEMPLE-TOURING soon takes

its toll, which probably explains

why Siem Reap, in Cambodia,

heaves with touts offering foot

massages and fish pedicures.

I hate having my feet fiddled

with, let alone having them nibbled

by cleaner fish.

However, if you’re happy to have

dunk your toes in a fish tank, it’s a

sure-fire way to send all that dead

skin packing. But a word of advice:

try to be first in line because by the

end of the trading day, the water in

the tank will be decidedly soiled,

after having played host to dozens

and dozens of feet and dead skin

flakes.

It wasn’t that long ago that Siem

Reap, the gateway to the Angkor

temple complex, was just a quiet,

dusty town of rutted roads and

dark nights. But the past 50 years

has transformed the city into a

charismatic destination, full of

paradoxes, as ancient traditions

and modern bling rub shoulders to

form a glittery tourist mecca.

I marvelled at the frenetic pageant

of Siem Reap street life, abuzz

with motorcycles and cyclists,

impossibly laden with a cornucopia

of goods, from vast bunches of

mangos to teetering ladders, water

tanks and freshly culled chickens.

It’s a place where tuk-tuk drivers

take a break by slinging themselves

into an on-board hammock, or

catch a quick game of checkers

with a mate. It’s a city of monks

draped in swirling ochre robes and

brightly painted temples.

In the heart of town, just a block

back from Siem Reap River, the

Old Market is a head-swirl of

colour, character and the bizarre.

Souvenir stalls litter the edges

of the market, touting trinkets

of dubious quality, but venture

inside the rabbit warren of endless

aisles to savour a slice of local life,

where vendors flog off everything

imaginable from pots and pans to

parasols.

But it’s the food section, a heaving

emporium of fresh produce in

a rainbow of colours, in addition to

the startling variety of meats and

seafood, that provides the best sensory

assault. It’s not a place to be

squeamish as you wander by dozens

of headless chooks, legs tightly

bound and colonised by flies, or

wonder what an earth that blood

and gore soaked speciality, selling

like hot cakes, might actually be.

THIRSTY?:

A sugarcane

juice vendor

in Siem

Reap.

It turns out one of the biggest

sellers at the Old Market, which

I could not bring myself to try, is

duck foetus. It looks as graphically

horrific as it sounds. Siem Reap

boasts a stack of markets – the Old

Market being the most traditional

and the night market remaining a

perennial hit with visitors.

Take in some of the local entertainment,

like the Landmine

Victim Band which serenades

shoppers at the market entrance,

with traditional Khmer music. If

you’re keen to buy some authentic,

local and handmade souvenirs, the

FISHY: Vendors at Siem Reap’s Old

Market, it is one of the most traditional

and the night market is a hit with

visitors. (Above) Healthy produce in

abundance.

night market is a good bet, with

an excellent range of handicrafts

including silk, art, jewellery, wood

and stone carvings.

Many of the producers are

orphans and disabled people, employed

by local NGO, so you’ll be

shopping with a clear conscience.

Cambodian cuisine is really starting

to stamp its mark, after traditionally

being overshadowed by its

neighbours, Thailand and Vietnam.

But Siem Reap has emerged as a

dining destination in recent years,

with strong and vibrant flavours

which draw inspiration from China

and India – stir-frying and dried

spices.

A signature national dish is

fish amok – steamed and curried

fish coated in kroeung paste and

cooked in a cup made from banana

leaves. The other must try signature

is beef lok lak, made with diced

beef and garnished with citrus and

pepper dip.

East to West - the

unforgettable journey

The TranzAlpine scenic train journeys between Christchurch and

Greymouth, crossing from one coast of the South Island to the other.

Spring is your cue to start planning a break to Greymouth

on the world famous TranzAlpine train to Greymouth.

Cross the sprawling Canterbury Plains, enjoying picturesque

vistas as you travel across the granite ravines of the ice-fed

Waimakariri River. Traverse the mighty Southern Alps, where

spectacular views of the chiselled alpine landscape will take

your breath away at every turn. After stopping at Arthur’s

Pass, the terrain changes as you emerge from the 8.5km long

Otira Tunnel. With a steep gradient of 1 in 33, it remains one

New Zealand’s finest engineering feats. Descend through a

subtropical rainforest, past the glistening Lake Brunner and

on to Greymouth the heart of the West Coast – A great base

for exploring mighty glaciers, wild rivers and the famous

Punakaiki pancake rocks.

You’ll enjoy all this in the comfort of new world-class

carriages featuring huge panoramic sky-view windows, an on

board licensed café with a range of delicious Kiwi flavours and

comprehensive GPS triggered at-seat audio commentary. For

a breath of fresh Spring air, step out onto the open air viewing

carriage where nothing gets between your camera and the

stunning scenery.

The Star

Springing into a new era of parenthood

WITH LAST week boasting a

superb bout of spring sunshine,

we took advantage of the

glorious weather and spent

Saturday afternoon at the

beach.

Armed with buckets, spades

and a massive shovel, we met

some friends on the sand and let

the kids go crazy. My other half

spent close to two hours continuously

digging tunnels, creating

trenches and bolstering walls.

The girls were sent on missions

to collect feathers, kelp, sticks,

or whatever they could find to

decorate their fortress.

With a further hour of the kids

playing in, on and around their

creation, us parents simply sat

back and watched it all unfold.

Such a fun and relaxing way to

wind down after a long week.

It was only then that I reflected

and realised that this was

possibly the beach trip since

embarking on our parenting

career that didn’t involve a good

hour of organising togs, wetsuits,

blankets, nappies, spare clothes,

towels and copious amounts of

food. Nor did we have to factor

in naps, snacks or bedtime routines.

It was awesome.

We were laden with only

one bag containing a couple of

towels, drink bottles and some

snacks. And if we felt like more,

we had a cafe within walking

distance. Easy as.

With our youngest twin girls

fast approaching their third

birthday, they are now at an

age where their independence

FUN:

Building a

fortress in

the sand.

is flourishing by the day. They

know not to go crashing into the

waves with their clothes on, and

that they can forage through the

backpack for snacks and drinks

whenever they feel hungry.

They are becoming more confident

in their own space (though

still close to each other) and love

to kick it with the “big girls”

rather than be close to our side.

For us, this is huge. The

watchful eyes, clock-watching

and scheduling that comes with

having babies now seems to have

officially gone.

The fact we were at the beach

within 30 minutes of making our

decision reinforced that the days

of routine are pretty much over,

and we are now in a new era.

Although we know that getting

four girls under seven out

the door will still present some

logistical challenges, Saturday

afternoon provided us with the

realisation that we are well and

truly on the other side of babyhood.

Of course, we will still pack

bags and organise drinks and

snacks, but it’s not such a big

thing if an afternoon slides by

and we decide to have fish ‘n’

chips on the beach rather than

rush home for the 5pm dinner,

bath and bed routine.

With that in mind, we are

looking forward to a summer of

more freedom and spontaneity

than we’ve had in the last seven

years. And while I feel somewhat

nostalgic about leaving

those years behind, I am equally

excited for the adventures that

lie ahead and look forward to the

next chapter in our lives.

Cheers to that, and roll on the

summer daze!

GETAWAY TO ALPINE TRIANGLE

The spectacular getaway

in Christchurch’s backyard

With iconic thermal pools,

villages surrounded by

mountains and forests, one

of the country’s premier wine

regions and spectacular wildlife (including

whales!), the Alpine Pacific Touring Route

(APT) is a road trip like no other.

The 370-km journey takes in the Hurunui

Region’s most spectacular

sights, winding its way

through Hanmer Springs,

the Waipara Valley and

onto Kaikoura. What’s

more, it starts just a stone’s

throw from Christchurch

but feels a world away

from the city so is the

ultimate and easy escape.

Anyone who has driven

up State Highway One

near the Waipara Valley in recent years will

have noticed the rapid growth of this winegrowing

region. It now has 74 vineyards,

31 wineries and four wonderful winery

restaurants – perfect for a lingering lunch

stop. The wines here are among the best in

the world and have the international awards

to prove it.

From Waipara, the APT will take you

north-west to Hanmer Springs, one of

Christchurch’s favourite holiday destinations

with fresh air, mountains and forests galore.

The iconic Hanmer Springs Thermal

Pools and Spa is still one of the country’s

most popular attractions with its famous

naturally heated, mineral-filled waters. The

complex now has 15 thermal pools, as well as

two hydroslides and the South Island’s only

aquatic thrill ride, the SuperBowl.

The village’s retail sector has undergone

a huge boom in recent times with a new

shopping centre on Conical Hill Road and

dozens of boutiques attracting visitors to the

village.

Hanmer Springs is

also fast becoming the

unofficial spa capital of

New Zealand and now

has more than a dozen

operators offering a

wide range of services.

There are numerous

styles of massage, a

full range of beauty

treatments (from facials

to pedicures) and holistic treatments such as

reiki and acupuncture all on offer.

The drive from Hanmer Springs to

Kaikoura along the Leader Road is stunning

and a trip not many Cantabrians have ticked

off. It takes you through historic villages and

rolling hills with plenty of photo stops.

Eco-tourism capital Kaikoura is, of

course, most famous for its whale watching

opportunities but that is just the tip of the

iceberg when it comes to the area’s wildlife

offering. Don’t miss the Ohau Stream Walk,

an easy 280-metre track, to a picturesque

waterfall that is popular with baby seals in

winter - delighting all who visit.

Kaikoura literally means ‘a meal of crayfish’

and there are plenty of opportunities to

sample this local delicacy. And, coupled

with a glass of Waipara Valley wine, there is

possibly no better way to end this fabulous

journey.

Wighton gets go ahead to play for Raiders

AN ELATED Jack Wighton

is free to play in Canberra’s

qualifying final after being found

not guilty of a shoulder charge.

The NRL judiciary panel of

Sean Garlick, Royce Ayliffe and

Mal Cochrane, took just five

minutes to find Wighton not

guilty of the grade-two shoulder

charge on Wests Tigers forward

Joel Edwards.

Wighton faced a four-match

ban if found guilty on Tuesday

night at Rugby League Central.

“It was good to get the result. I

can’t wait to get out on the park

on the weekend. I was always

confident. I always had faith,”

Wighton told the New Zealand

Herald.

“It was just one of those tackles

that looked worse than what it

was.

“It has been a long day, a rough

start to the week and it is good to

get it over with.

“I am just really excited about

the weekend.”

Raiders coach Ricky Stuart

said it was a verdict star fullback

Wighton deserved.

“I am really happy with the

hearing and for the team and for

Jack,” Stuart said.

“He has been pretty settled

and confident for two days. He

has handled himself really well

because he has put so much into

the season.”

Stuart admitted the case had

been a distraction for his team.

“I wanted to do some stuff with

the team this afternoon and we

had to postpone it,” he said.

“We haven’t had a session this

week. But we will get through it.

It is a challenge. It is not going to

be anything but another hurdle

we have to overcome.”

In arguing his case, judiciary

prosecutor Peter McGrath conceded

the first point of contact

between Wighton and Edwards

was their forearms but said that

didn’t matter.

“It was a classic shoulder

charge that player Wighton was

at least careless in the way he effected

it,” McGrath said.

Wighton’s defence counsel

Nick Ghabar said the tackle was

“more a collision than a charge”.

A small group of Raiders fans

celebrated outside League Central

after the verdict was read out.

Christ’s recruit top coaching staff

Basketball

team

qualifies for

nationals

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRIST’S COLLEGE has

made history, qualifying for

the secondary schools’ national

basketball championships for the

first time ever.

Christ’s finished third at the

weekend’s South Island qualifying

tournament. Their previous

best effort was 14th, which they

achieved 12 months ago.

Christ’s basketball programme

has somewhat emulated the rapid

rise of their rugby programme

with the help of a high-profile

coaching duo.

This year, the Christ’s first XV

rugby team experienced their

best season in decades under the

guidance of former All Black

captain Reuben Thorne and former

Crusaders player Cameron

McIntyre.

Canterbury Rams captain

Marques Whippy took on the

role of basketball head coach at

Christ’s last year and, in recent

months, has been joined by current

Rams coach and former Tall

Blacks point guard Mark Dickel,

who has been helping the team

in an assistant role.

“Mark’s great at motivating the

kids. The practices leading up

to the tournament were pretty

intense, but it helps when you

have a coach who has played

and coached at a high level,” said

Christ’s head coach Whippy.

The days of teachers coaching

top secondary school teams are

beginning to look like a thing of

the past, with many examples

of prominent athletes, past and

present, taking on coaching roles

at secondary school.

Some include Anna Thompson

coaching the Rangi Ruru netball

team, and former All White

Danny Hay coaching the Sacred

Heart College first XI in Auckland.

“Rugby’s probably one that’s

led the way with regards to that.

A lot of schools around the country

do have top ex-players who

are part of their programme. It

seems to be the reality of it at the

TEAM TALK: Marques Whippy (left) and Mark Dickel lay down

their instructions during a time-out in last week’s South Island

championships.

moment, but they’re not always

easy to come by,” said Christ’s

director of sport Rob Clarke.

The school went to the South

Island tournament in Ashburton

with the objective of finishing

in the top six and qualifying for

nationals.

They won four of five pool

games to qualify for the quarter

finals. Their only pool game loss

came at the hands of tournament

winners Christchurch Boys’

High School.

Christ’s took on Nelson College

in the quarter finals, knowing

a win would assure them of a

spot at nationals.

With the game poised, Nelson

made a free throw to take a one

point lead with just six seconds

remaining. Christ’s had one

final chance to win the game.

Star player Will Harrison drove

towards the basket and then

passed the ball cross court to

find Sam McGuire who hit the

game winning shot.

The 70-69 victory cemented

Christ’s spot at the national

championship. They then lost

70-82 to Nelson College in the

semi-final before defeating

Cashmere High School 83-81 to

finish third.

“We’ve never beaten Cashmere

this year. We played them maybe

three times and usually lost by

20 points. That was probably

the best basketball I’ve seen the

boys play and it came from hard

work,” said Whippy.

Christ’s will join Christchurch

BHS and Cashmere in the

national championships in

Palmerston North later this

a quiet suburban setting and has 4 courts

social tennis club and welcome players of all

Dragon boating

“Dragon boating is a sport suitable for anyone, no matter

what your ability or age – from 12 to 112, you can enjoy this

sport.

Join a team and enjoy the fun and camaraderie of dragon

boating. We will match you to a team to suit your lifestyle and

ability.

Christchurch teams are among the best in the country,

with school girls’ and a breast cancer team currently National

Champions. None of these paddlers started off expecting

to rise to these lofty heights – they achieved success from

the foundations of building a team dedicated to training,

teamwork and camaraderie.

Regattas run from October to April with a highlight being

the Le Mans starts at Super 12 racing in Akaroa. This event

is a huge amount of fun, always in excellent weather at the

end of January with the many holiday makers soaking up

the energy, enjoying the noise and watching the pageantry

of the dragons heads, tails and

vigorous drumming out on the

water.

Dragon boating is on the path

to become an Olympic sport. So

now is a great time to become

involved – who knows, you

could be a NZ representative

athlete.”

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

The biggest range of vehicles

in one location

Toyota Prius cares

for the environment

• By Ross Kiddie

I HAD the good fortune

recently to listen to a

speech from Toyota New

Zealand’s managing

director, Alistair Davis.

The subject was global

warming and the effect

that is having on our

planet. Mr Davis’ address

was fascinating and way

too comprehensive to

detail, but for the fact

that the bottom line is as

a global population we

aren’t doing enough to

save our planet from rising

sea water levels and other

issues surrounding climate

change.

Toyota as a global vehicle

manufacturing operation is

well aware of the problems

our future generations face,

and are amping up the

production of more fuel

efficient and low emission

vehicles, those which are

less likely to contribute to

the problem greenhouse

gas is creating on our

weather patterns.

There is no silver bullet

to the issue without a viable

alternative to the internal

combustion engine; that

being the case, Toyota’s

production of hybrid

vehicles is reaching new

intensity.

Because of New Zealand’s

tiny appetite for new cars

in comparison to the world

market, we don’t see the

volume of hybrids that

are leaving the Toyota

factories, but as demand

here swells, more and more

hybrids are landing; take

for example, the release

of the new Corolla hybrid

which will be evaluated

in these columns in a few

week’s time.

In the interim, this

evaluation focuses on

the Prius – the car which

really started the hybrid

revolution, and for

2016/17 a new generation

has landed, priced from

$47,490 to $54,990.

The fourth-generation

car shares much of the

same basic design and

mechanical engineering of

its predecessor, but it is a

far more advanced car, and

the styling cues are fresh

– almost futuristic – and

designed so that the person

who buys Prius will make a

statement.

The Prius has always had

styling a little avant-garde,

but new treatment makes it

a lot more radical. Inside,

contrasting white plastic

trim elements are striking

and while it may sound

garish, it works well with

the purpose of Prius.

On that subject, the

new Prius is quieter and

far more refined than

ever before, the level of

sophistication has been

cranked up a notch or two.

It drives quietly, and for

all intents and purposes it

works much like a standard

car. I’ve often said that

the Camry is my favourite

hybrid but the new Prius is

on a par, you just feel so at

ease with the system, and

even if you aren’t familiar

with the Prius concept, the

latest iteration will quickly

win you over.

• Price – Toyota Prius,

$47,490

• Dimensions – Length,

4540mm; width,

1760mm; height,

1475mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1798cc, 90kW,

142Nm, CVT.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage –

3.4l/100km

The dash and console

area are new-age, there

are a raft of screens and

displays, and even though

it is a complex car, the

controls are intuitive and

easy to locate the display

which shows the the inner

workings of the hybrid

operation is my favourite.

And therein lies the

ideology of the hybrid

operation. It has battery

power to activate the

electric motor which

is initiated in the first

instance; however, the

petrol engine operates

automatically when the

electric motor is under

load. The 1.8-litre petrol

engine also provides the

generation needed to keep

TOYOTA PRIUS: Major

technology boost in new

model.

recharging the batteries, as

well as some regeneration

available on deceleration.

It’s a complex process,

although in effect it

works seamlessly and

efficiently, drive is sent to

the front wheels through

a continuously variable

automatic transmission.

The benefits make a lot

of sense when you take

into account the fuel usage

readouts. Between a long

highway drive and a lot of

suburban running around

the test car recorded a 5.2-

litre per 100km (54mpg)

average.

That’s nowhere near

Toyota’s best claim of

3.4l/100km (82mpg) on a

combined cycle average but

conditions to get usage that

friendly would need to be

near perfect.

In terms of handling,

the Prius feels taut, the

newcomer has had a

shift in battery position so

it feels less bulky at the rear,

and the ride isn’t as harsh

as I remember Prius to be.

The spring and damper

rates are firmish but not

hard, and that relates to

positive body balance in a

corner along with realistic

steering feel.

In the wider scheme of

things, other manufacturers

have only dabbled with

hybrid production while

Toyota is forever expanding

the number of vehicles

available in hybrid form.

The Prius sets an example

as to how it should work

effectively.

Toyota in New Zealand

recognise the importance

of Prius in our market,

even to the extent of

importing pre-owned plugin

(electric-only) Prius

through the Signature Class

operation. It’s there for

those who like the idea of

what the Prius represents

but who don’t relate to

the idea of still relying on

petrol as the main form of

propulsion.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important to make people

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and

keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape.

Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back.

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your

stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos,

memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best

showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

We have

achieved record

breaking prices

recently!

Licensed (REAA 2008)

Results Realty Ltd

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates

that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh

coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody

is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty

litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes.

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent.

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are going on the

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of

your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there.

Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and

cabinets clean and tidy.

Going off - big time!

IN 1982 the Marine Tavern in Sumner

was ‘going off, big time’. It was one of the

city’s main music venues. And the

attraction? - Louie & the Hot Sticks.

Made up of local musos Al ‘Louie’ Park

(vocals, guitar), Helen Mulholland

(vocals), Jim Walmsley (guitar), Wayne

Jamieson (bass), Danny Wilson (sax), and

Wayne Beecroft (drums), they

energetically delivered their own unique

blend of soul, Latino, blues, rock originals

and covers. Their stage presence was

always enthusiastically electrifying, the

atmosphere was always like a monstrous

party. Fans flocked from all over the city

and would queue for ages to see band.

Following a highly successful three year

Photo credit: John Woods

residency, the Hot Sticks moved closer to

town, takin up residency at the Aranui

Hotel.

In May last year Louie & the Hot Sticks

delighted Christchurch by reforming for a

couple of shows at The Ferry Ale House.

“It was the general consensus among

audience and band that it should happen

more often, so we are returning one more

time to give Christchurch a taste of what

made Louie & the Hot Sticks such an

enduring band,” said Al Park.

Louie & the Hot Sticks play The Ferry

Ale House, 2a Waterman Place,

Ferrymead this Friday and Saturday

night. Pre sale tickets available at

cosmicticketing or door sales.
