SPORT, P45 NEW ERA FOR CITY’S HOME OF TENNIS

starnews.co.nz

• By Shelley Robinson and

Gabrielle Stuart

TREASURY HAS painted

an improving picture of the

beleaguered convention centre

project.

Yesterday it released a performance

report on major Government

projects throughout New

Zealand, including

four of the city’s anchor

projects.

The convention

centre has moved

from a red rating to a

much-improved amber

delivery confidence

rating from its previous

report.

But Minister supporting

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Gerry Brownlee

was yesterday scathing of the

Treasury analysis, in spite of the

improved report, saying it was

done by people who “fluff about

the place pontificating”.

He said he had little respect

for the reports or their analysis.

“It is a rating system Treasury

do for themselves,” he said.

Mr Brownlee has blasted previous

Treasury reports as “disrespectful”,

calling a November

report on anchor projects “utter

tripe”.

The latest Treasury report

said the improved mark was

because “early design and master

planning stages” had been

completed.

But the Avon River

Precinct project had no

improvement from the

amber rating.

The Metro Sports Facility

rates amber/green,

the same as it was in the

last Treasury report.

The East Frame Residential

project has been

evaluated for the first

time by Treasury and has also

received an amber/green.

The convention centre’s amber

rating means that successful

delivery “appears feasible” but

significant issues exist that

could be resolved.

It comes after Plenary Conventions

New Zealand, made

up of Carter Group and Ngai

Tahu Property, pulled out of the

project in June.

GOOD NEWS all round in

today’s paper.

A Treasury report on the big

ticket rebuild projects has given

a promising outlook over their

completion dates.

That is a major relief and big

confidence booster to the city

and all of the tourism, sports

and business threads that will

run off them and keep Canterbury’s

economic wheels turning.

Gerry Brownlee will have

rightly had a smile on his face

yesterday.

On pages 10-11, we look at

another Christchurch icon –

Orana Wildlife Park. On Sunday

it celebrates its 40th birthday.

And in sport, Gordon Findlater

reveals the new centre court

for Wilding Park is not far off

from being completed (page 45).

It’s a huge step forward for

the very historic Wilding Park,

which has survived the earthquakes.

It’s a shame the old green

grandstands are gone. It was an

incredible venue to watch tennis

But that’s the legacy of

February 22, 2011.

Tour will commemorate heroic

Canty soldier’s WW1 deeds

THE BELGIUM village where a

Canterbury soldier was awarded

the Victoria Cross for gallantry

in 1917 will be commemorated

by a party of New Zealanders

taking part in the 100th

commemorative tour of the

Western Front next year.

Private Henry James

Nicholas (right), of Lincoln,

received the VC

for outstanding bravery

during an attack on

Polderhoek Chateau on

December 3, 1917.

Professor of war

studies at Massey University,

Glyn Harper, said the “on tour

historian” accompanying the

commemorative tour, will describe

the action that took place

there following the Battle of

Passchendaele.

The tour party will commemorate

the heroism of Private

Nicholas and lay a wreath at a

monument to the Kiwis who lost

their lives at La Basse-Ville, a

village close to Messines, where

another New Zealand soldier,

Corporal Leslie Andrew, was

also awarded the VC.

The 10 day centenary tour

which commemorates the Battle

for Passchendaele, where the

New Zealand Division suffered

2700 casualties including 845

fatalities, is being organised

by Stephen Parsons House of

Travel. It starts in Paris on October

7, 2017, and departs from

Brussels on October 16. The tour

visits a number of battlefields

and memorials, attends the

official Battle of Passchendaele

Commemoration and visits the

grave of 1905 All Back Captain,

Dave Gallaher.

Private Nicholas was the first

Cantabrian to receive the VC.

A member of the 1st Battalion

of the Canterbury Regiment,

he attacked a German machine

gun post single-handedly, shooting

the officer in command and

overcoming the remainder of

the 16 man garrison with bombs

and bayonets, capturing four

wounded prisoners and the

machine gun.

He received the VC from King

George V “for most conspicuous

bravery and devotion to duty

in attack.” As Sergeant

Nicholas, he was killed

in a minor skirmish only

19 days before the end of

World War 1.

Leslie Andrew survived

World War 1 as a second

lieutenant and remained in

the military until being appointed

commander of 22nd Battalion

in 1940. His battalion saw

limited action during the Battle

of Greece but was involved in

the defence of Maleme airfield

in Crete which was eventually

overrun by German forces.

He relinquished command of

the 22nd Battalion in February

3, 1942 and returned home

to command the Wellington

Fortress Area. He died in Palmerston

North on January 8, 1969.

The tour is open to the

public. Contact Stephen

In Brief

EQC CUTS DOWN ON STAFF

The Earthquake Commission

has confirmed it will slash

staff numbers from 868 to 458

positions in January as its work in

Canterbury enters its final phase.

The confirmed structure includes

75 more positions than the original

proposal in August. That will mean

about 75 fewer roles in Hamilton,

about 185 fewer in Wellington and

about 150 fewer in Canterbury. The

changes will affect staff on fixed

term employment agreements

to December, or on contracts for

service.

ALLEGED CON MAN

DENIES CHARGES

A man who allegedly conned

an 82-year-old pensioner out

of more than $90,000 made a

short appearance in the district

court this week. Kim Barwell,

55, denies all 66 charges. Barwell

became frustrated when told his

review would be postponed. In

custody since his arrest in March,

he said he is just “sitting in there

rotting” while his fate is decided.

Barwell will re-appear on November

28.​

ALLEGED DRINK-DRIVER

NAMED

A Lincoln man who claimed

his car was stolen when, police

allege, he had actually crashed

it himself while drink-driving

has been named as Kane Jarod

Jordan. Jordan, 23, appeared

in the district court on Friday

charged with driving with excess

breath alcohol, careless driving,

failing to accompany police and

making a false complaint. He

entered no plea and was bailed to

reappear on October 3.

CAVE ROCK INJURED MAN

OUT OF HOSPITAL

A drunken reveller seriously

injured after falling 9m from

Sumner’s Cave Rock has been

discharged from hospital. The

man, in his 20s, climbed onto the

rocky outcrop with others late on

Saturday night before trying to

leap from the rock on to nearby

shipping containers. However, he

missed the landing and fell to the

ground, emergency services said.

Uber drivers warned not to

• By Gabrielle Stuart

ALMOST 700 Christchurch

drivers have been given warnings

for illegally driving or planning

to drive for Uber.

The taxi service company has

been locked in a dispute with

the New Zealand Transport

Agency after it ignored the rules

requiring its drivers to get a

passenger endorsement licence.

The NZTA has sent warning

letters to 693 Christchurch drivers,

saying they could face court

action, or up to $10,000 in fines,

if they carried passengers without

getting a license.

If they ignore the warning and

keep driving, the NZTA can also

issue them a prohibition notice

banning them from driving.

Since April, Uber has allowed

drivers without a license to

ignore the laws and drive passengers

anyway.

But because the drivers work as

self-employed contractors, they

would individually be responsible

for paying fines, not the company.

Tickets were handed out to 129

drivers during a police crackdown

on “small passenger service

vehicles”, including both taxis

and Uber cars, in Auckland this

month. Eighteen of the drivers

caught in the sting were forbidden

to operate and three cars

were impounded.

Christchurch police have not

said if they are planning any

similar stings here, but police

spokesman Ross Henderson said

the Police Commercial Vehicle

Investigation Unit was working

with NZTA to ensure taxi and

Uber drivers were “operating

within the law”.

Although the service has only

been running in Christchurch

since March, local drivers make

up more than a third of the 1934

Uber drivers across the country

the NZTA believes are working

illegally.

Uber argues that it is a “ride

sharing service” not a taxi service,

so should not be subject to

the same regulations.

Uber spokesman Caspar Nixon

said ride-sharing was not currently

regulated in New Zealand,

so Uber had its own “fast and

affordable screening process”.

“We have a screening process

that we implemented when we

launched in Christchurch, which

includes background and driving

history checks, but we are

currently working with the Government

on how we can make

it better, because the P Endorsement

isn’t a great process to work

with,” he said.

The P endorsement costs

$161.70 for a year or $458.90 for

five years, and it can take months

as drivers need to complete a

course and get a medical certificate.

But NZTA has said Uber drivers

are operating illegally without

the licence.

“This is illegal, as the law

requires anyone carrying passengers

for hire or reward to hold

a passenger endorsement,” group

manager for access and use Celia

Patrick said.

She said Uber’s screening

process did not cover things the P

endorsement checked, like complaints

made to police about the

person, or charges laid that had

not been to court, past transport

service complaints or overseas

criminal convictions.

“As a safety regulator, we have

no interest in standing in the way

of innovation, but we have a responsibility

to ensure that people

carrying passengers for a living

have been properly vetted and

understand their responsibilities

under the law,” she said.

break the law

•From

WHEN JORDAN Reddish took

an Uber ride from a party in

Aranui to his home in Burwood,

he thought it felt like a long trip –

but did not realise how long until

days later.

What should have been a

5km, 10-minute trip instead

took almost half an hour, as the

Uber driver looped 17km around

Aranui and Linwood before delivering

him home.

The trip cost almost $60,

instead of what would have been

about $20 for a direct trip.

Although the Ara student

thought the trip was unusually

long, he didn’t realise how far

they had detoured until he got

the receipt and trip outline from

Uber several days later.

He believed the driver had

deliberately ripped him off.

“He must have thought this

guy’s a bit drunk, let’s make some

money off him,” he said.

He had not asked if the driver

had a passenger licence, but said

the man had acted very professional

at the time.

He planned to be more cautious

in the future, but said it had not

put him off using the service.

“I have Ubered five or six times

and every other time has be fine.

DETOUR: What should have been a 10-minute trip home to

Burwood instead took Jordan Reddish almost half an hour in an

Uber because of the roundabout route the driver took.

I would definitely use it again, I’d

just be wary.”

When he contacted Uber to

complain, he said they handled

the complaint fast and refunded

him $37.68 to cover the extra he

had paid for the detour.

Uber spokesman Caspar Nixon

would not say if there had been

consequences for the driver, except

to say that he would have had

his fee for the ride reduced after

the complaint was substantiated.

He would not say if the driver

had a passenger endorsement

licence or if the man was driving

illegally, saying he could not access

that information without the

driver’s permission.

But he said Uber took “inefficient

route” complaints seriously.

He said the cases were sometimes

a “one-off”, where a driver

had made a mistake or had a

legitimate reason to detour, but if

it happened regularly the driver

would be flagged.

That worked through the Uber

star rating system. If a driver’s

rating dropped below a certain

point, they would be called by

Uber to discuss the problem and

they could be “deactivated”, he

said.

Treasury rebuild report

page 1

The convention centre has

been shrouded in controversy,

with the Government

deciding it would do the $284

million project alone, after

the relationship with Plenary

broke down.

The Star revealed recently

that the project, which is set to

open by the end of 2019, had

already cost $74 million.

An assessment of schedule

risk is expected to go to Cabinet

in November.

Labour spokeswoman for

Canterbury Issues Dr Megan

Woods said it was a “pat on

the head” for the Government

but there was “still room for

improvement”.

She said it showed since the

April exit of the Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery Authority

there had been improvements.

“It shows that a locally-led

recovery is better than a

centrally-led recovery,” she

said.

Mr Brownlee said Dr

Woods’ comment showed how

out of touch she was.

Otakaro Ltd took over the

anchor project from CERA.

“Otakaro is a Governmentowned

entity,” he said.

Ōtākaro Ltd chief executive

Albert Brantley said the report

showed Ōtākaro had “hit the

ground running”.

He said work on the Metro

Sports Facility and the East

Frame sites would be underway

before the end of the year,

and work on the Avon River

Precinct was progressing well.

The budget for the Avon

River precinct, which includes

the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground, The Terraces,

Victoria Square redevelopment

and the North Frame

community spaces and

garden, is $116 million. The remaining

projects are set to be

complete in stages next year.

The $800 million East

Frame Residential project is

set to include almost 1000

townhouses and apartments,

to be built in stages completed

between 2018 and 2026.

The $300 million Metro

Sports Facility was originally

scheduled to be finished this

year, but is now set to be complete

by 2020.

The Christchurch Schools

Rebuild Programme, to repair

and rebuild 115 earthquake

damaged schools by 2022,

improved with a top rating of

“green”.

Drug dog plan for airports

• By Andrew King and Shelley

Robinson

DRUG DETECTION dogs

patrolling domestic terminals are

a step closer.

Minister of Police Judith

Collins received options about

general screening for illicit drugs

at domestic ports on August 11

as part of a plan to prevent and

disrupt drug trafficking within

New Zealand and between the

North and South Islands.

Canterbury Inspector Bryan

Buck said it requires a change of

law to allow drug-detection dogs

out of the customs-controlled

international areas into the domestic

terminals.

“From a policing point, we

want to deploy drug dogs in

those domestic areas . . . We

know illicit drugs are moving

about the country and that it is

largely unchecked,” he said.

Both Christchurch and

Dunedin airports are known

gateways for drug trafficking

of methamphetamine from the

North Island.

In November 2014, Kylie Puna

was arrested on Yaldhurst Rd

after a drug-run ended with a

police chase and a crash.

She was found to be concealing

18.2g of methamphetamine,

with an estimated street value of

$18,200.

Puna brought the drugs in

through the airport.

A woman in August 2014 was

convicted to 12 months homedetention

after she concealed

$50,000 in cash and 56g of

methamphetamine on her person

before boarding a flight from

Auckland to Christchurch.

On September 9, two men with

gang connections were arrested

at Dunedin Airport with a quantity

of methamphetamine.

Sociologist and gang expert

Jarrod Gilbert said it would have

a significant expense to roll out

across the country, so a pilot programme

would be the way to go.

“When you are dealing with

hundreds of people and their

luggage that will take time and

money so the question is, will it

achieve bang for buck?” he said.

Inspector Buck said if it was

just a matter of having the dogs

there, it could be done tomorrow.

“Finding the balance between

protecting people’s rights and allowing

the police to do their job

is the key to its success,” he said.

Poppi’s owner

gets to say

thank you

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A CHANCE encounter meant

Coral Luscombe had another wish

granted this week – a chance to

thank the kind stranger who paid

$1000 toward her dog’s vet bill.

The woman helped Ms Luscombe

after her papillon, Poppi,

was hit by a car, and later anonymously

paid most of the bill.

But, by the time Ms Luscombe

found out, the stranger was long

gone.

On Tuesday, Ms Luscombe was

on the street putting out her bins

when the stranger passed by, on

her way to visit a friend living

further down the street.

“I just said, you’re her, and ran

down and gave her the biggest

hug,” she said.

The stranger wanted to stay

anonymous.

But she asked how Poppi was

recovering and stopped to give

her a pat.

“She acted like it was all in a

days work, so maybe she does it

all the time, but it meant so much

to me,” Ms Luscombe said.

“It was just one of those moments

that makes you think, yes,

there is good in the world,” she

said. •Letters page 18

Key managers leave SCIRT

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AN EXODUS of workers is

becoming a problem for major

infrastructure projects, with less

than three months until SCIRT

alliance work wraps up.

December is the deadline for

about 130 infrastructure projects

still to be completed by the

alliance, which is made up of the

city council, Government and

five contracting companies.

But, with the deadline looming,

many key people involved

in the projects are leaving

Christchurch or finding other

jobs.

SCIRT executive general

manager Ian Campbell said

the number of senior staff and

project managers leaving was

particularly a problem, as they

were often difficult to replace.

But it was an issue SCIRT had

expected and planned for, he

said.

“We can’t chain people to the

desk and say they can’t leave,”

he said.

He said the board discussed

giving retention bonuses to staff

who worked until the end to

encourage them to stay.

But that idea was rejected.

“It would be an extra cost to

the programme and it is a dangerous

precedent to set,” he said.

Senior staff were also being

moved from incomplete SCIRT

projects to work on private ones

within the five contracting companies,

he said.

But he said the companies had

agreed not to do that unless they

could provide a suitable replacement.

As of August, SCIRT had

spent $2.08 billion of its total

$2.2 billion budget for almost

700 infrastructure projects.

Of the spend, 70 per cent was

on wastewater system repairs,

with just 10 per cent spent on

roads.

As each project is finished,

all the files and information is

handed over to the city council,

which plans to continue repairs

and upgrade roads gradually.

It is expected to take at least

20 years to return the roads to

the state they were in before the

earthquakes.

The city council has budgeted

$4.6 billion over the next 10

years for capital works. Of that,

each year about $150 million

would be put into transport

budgets and $150 million into

“Three Waters” infrastructure,

city services general manager

David Adamson said.

That would pay for the

remaining earthquake repairs

to roads, footpaths and underground

networks, as well as

the normal replacements and

upgrades.

City council Infrastructure,

Transport and Environment

Committee chairman Phil

Clearwater said the city councillors

were due to get a behind

closed doors briefing on the

situation at the council meeting

today.

They would have a better understanding

of how much work

the city council would have to

do after that, he said.

Where the wild things are:

Orana Wildlife Park at McLeans Island

turned 40 on Sunday. Bridget Rutherford

looks back on the park’s history

IT WAS September 25, 1976.

The All Blacks toured South

Africa, defying a sporting

embargo, John Walker won

Olympic gold in the 1500m and

Australasia’s first drive-through

lion enclosure opened.

Mum, dad and the kids could

jump in the car and drive

through Orana Wildlife Park’s

lion enclosure to get an up close

and personal look at the big cats

and watch them being fed.

But the experience was

scrapped in 1995 due to health

and safety reasons.

The big cats developed a taste

for wing mirrors and bumpers,

and some liked jumping on the

roofs of cars.

Visitors began tempting fate,

leaning out of their car windows

to take photos, with one family

stopping their car and attempting

to have a picnic on the grass

in the enclosure.

Fast-forward 40 years, however,

and Orana Wildlife Park still

offers an up close and personal

lion experience in the safety of a

lion-proof cage on the back of a

4WD vehicle.

A lot has changed over the

years and staff will look back on

that as they mark the park’s 40th

birthday on Sunday.

The park was the dream of the

South Island Zoological Society,

formed with the intention of

building a major wildlife park in

Christchurch.

However, it took six years to

plan, fundraise and build it.

What started as a stony

riverbed was transformed by

volunteers, initially with hand

tools before they could buy

secondhand equipment, into a

wildlife park.

On September 10, 1976, the

park’s first animals arrived from

Australia.

They included 18 lions, six of

which were cubs, two tiger cubs,

two donkeys, two camels, two

water buffalo and two Shetland

ponies.

Nowadays the park, which sits

on 80ha of McLeans Island land,

has about 400 animals representing

70 species.

Visitors can go and see Kidogo,

the 23-year-old porcupine,

Stumpy the rhino, or Jane the

cockatoo – the park’s longest

resident.

Records show she came from

Adelaide Zoo in 1978 and is

about 40 years old.

Orana Park – its original name

– officially opened its gates to the

public on September 25, 1976, at

10am.

By 2pm, a queue of cars

stretched 7km along McLeans Island

Rd waiting to get in – that’s

how popular it was.

Two years later, in 1978,

the spider monkey island was

built – they were the park’s first

primates.

However, last year it welcomed

a different, larger primate species

– the country’s first gorillas.

Western lowland gorillas Fataki,

Fuzu and Mahali arrived at

Orana last July from their birth

place of Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

Chief executive Lynn Anderson

said the park raised 100 per

cent of the funds needed to build

the $6 million centre and bring

the primates to the park.

There is no doubt the Giant

Ape Centre is the most ambitious

and greatest development

in the park’s history, ever,” she

said.

The centre was built with the

intention of a second species

KEEPERS: Orana Wildlife Park native fauna manager Alyssa Salton (left) and chief executive

Lynn Anderson at the Great Ape Centre.

of primate to come to the park,

which will become reality next

year when an orangutan arrives.

Ms Anderson has been working

at the park for 20 years.

She arrived about nine months

after the original drive-through

lion encounter closed, but she

remembers it fondly.

She introduced the current

4WD caged lion encounter in

1999.

The idea came from being a

child and sitting in the back seat

with mum and dad and looking

at the keeper in the cage feeding

the lions and I thought, it would

be so cool and exciting to be

inside that cage with the keeper.”

It is one of the most popular

experiences at the park, along

with feeding the three giraffes,

she said.

The park has two houses on

site with staff living in them to

supervise at night time, she said.

POWERFUL: Dominant male, Fataki, is one of the three gorillas

that arrived at Orana Wildlife Park last year.

The story of Orana Park

But sometimes, it is the visitors

they need to look out for.

“I once looked out the window

across the office and saw someone

jumping in the otter pool

inside the enclosure – this was

many years ago – he had also

taken off most of his clothes.

He was requested to get out immediately

and he did get out. I

couldn’t quite believe my eyes.”

But when it comes to health

and safety for the 45 staff working

at the park, for dangerous

animals, there is a “hands-off”

policy, she said.

“We actually promote natural

behaviour. We want our gorillas

to behave as gorillas would in the

wild. It’s same for our lions.”

The park is owned and operated

by Orana Wildlife Trust,

which is a charitable trust.

It is not cheap to run and it

relies on grants, community

support and donations to keep

running, Ms Anderson said.

The revenue from entry fees

goes straight back into the park’s

day-to-day running and maintenance,

while anything extra goes

into new developments.

A notable supporter of the

park was philanthropist and

Mainfreight founder Neil Graham,

who passed away last year.

“Neil was very committed to

funding things that people don’t

like to fund. He wanted to help

us improve our roads, signage

and toilets.”

Ms Anderson said bringing a

giraffe over from Australia costs

about $50,000 just for transport.

And each year it costs $225,000

to feed all of the animals.

The meat for the lions is

provided by three different companies,

while nearby Raeward

Fresh supplies the fruit and vegetables

for the other animals.

It costs $40,000 a year to feed

the three gorillas – $800 a week

in fresh produce. Eggs are also

delivered weekly, Ms Anderson

said.

“Meerkats are very partial to a

ATTRACTION: Lions once roamed around the parked cars at Orana Wildlife Park. Meanwhile, one of the park’s first animals – a

camel – arrived by plane.

hard boiled egg.”

Ms Anderson said a difficult

time was when the September

2010 and February 2011 earthquakes

hit, although it did not

cause significant damage.

After that the park was battered

by two floods and three

snow storms. It had to close for

about 40 days on nine separate

occasions.

“In an earthquake, the lions

would jump up and the primates

would call and get upset. But

within a short period it got to

the point that a lion would carry

on sleeping without batting an

eyelid.”

Native fauna manager Alyssa

Salton has worked at the park for

13 years, starting as a volunteer.

Now she is part of the team

that carries out Orana’s conservation

work.

A breed-for-release programme

started at the park in

2000. The team breeds native

New Zealand birds to be released

into the wild, including kiwi, the

blue duck and brown teal.

Over her time at the park, Ms

Salton said there had been a lot

of change, but one of the largest

for her was the introduction of

the kea enclosure, which opened

in 2009.

Ms Salton said her favourite

part of the job is seeing the kiwi

eggs hatch.

The kiwi will have an even

better home in the future as the

park begins building its New

Zealand Kiwi Centre, which will

showcase the work the park does

in breeding our national bird.

Ms Anderson said Orana

Wildlife Park aimed to continue

being a “world class zoo” over

the next 40 years, which entertained

and educated.

“It’s like a canvas we keep

adding to.”

Wagner’s Paralympic tear-jerker

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHEERING ON Paralympic

torch-bearer Marcia Malsa as

she slipped, fell, then got up

again and continued was one of

the most moving experiences

of Minister for Disability Issues

Nicky Wagner’s life.

The Christchurch Central

MP returned last week from

the Paralympics in Rio, where

she was the first New Zealand

Government minister ever to

officially attend the event.

She said she was left with

tears streaming down her face

as she sat in the stands amid an

audience of about 80,000 people,

watching the drama unfold during

the opening ceremony.

She said Ms Malsa, a Brazilian

former gold-medallist, was unsteady

on her feet and obviously

struggling to walk as she carried

the Olympic torch.

“Three quarters of the way she

fell. But someone rushed to pick

her up again, and I have never

heard a crowd come in with

so much support. The whole

audience, about 80,000 people,

was willing her forward. There

wouldn’t have been a dry eye in

the house,” she said.

Her four-day trip to Rio was

Government-funded, and her

goal was to raise awareness of

how much people with disabilities

could achieve.

With 21 Paralympic medals,

including nine gold, the 31 athletes

on the New Zealand team

finished with the best per-capita

medal haul in the world.

As well as hosting an event

for the Paralympians’ families

and opening a new classroom

built in Rio, Ms Wagner attended

many of the Paralympic

events, where she waved a New

Zealand flag and “everything

else I could” as she cheered the

athletes on.

She said she particularly loved

watching the swimmers, who

she said were “masters in the

water”.

The difference between what

they were like on the land and

on the water was very noticeable.

They often had to be lifted

in and out of the pool, but they

were so capable in the water and

took great joy in it,” she said.

Other highlights included

watching Liam Malone take

silver in the 100m, and seeing

Sophie Pascoe’s family out

cheering her on in ‘Sophie Pascoe

Fan Club’ t-shirts, she said.

She said the families of the

Paralympians were everywhere

at Rio.

CHAMPION: Nicky Wagner with three-time Paralympic

swimmer Cam Leslie in Rio, where he broke his own world

record to win gold in the 150m individual medley. ​

She said their importance

was summed up in one of her

favourite quotes from Sophie

Pascoe’s autobiography: “I’m

very grateful for the way my

parents brought me up. If they’d

treated me as a little disabled kid

who couldn’t do anything, that’s

exactly what I’d be doing now –

nothing.”

New public

park in the

Port Hills

• By Tom Doudney

THE 233-hectare Tussock Hill

Farm in the Port Hills will be

turned into a new public park.

The farm’s owners have agreed

to sell the land, between Mt

Vernon Park and Castle Rock Reserve,

to the Summit Road Society

for $1.8 million.

Society president Bill Woods

will put in $600,000 of his own

money to cover a shortfall in

available funds for the purchase.

Mr Woods said a “substantial”

legacy payment from the late Jack

Hutchinson and some accumulated

funds of the society were

also involved in the purchase.

Mr Woods’ contribution comes

with the proviso that the park will

be named after his late wife Linda

who enjoyed walking in the Port

Hills.

The deal took five years to negotiate

with the owners. Mr Woods

said the proposed park was the

largest remaining parcel of land in

the Christchurch-facing section of

the Port Hills.

The society has about 300ha of

land already in the form of Ohinetahi

Bush Reserve, Omahu Bush

and Gibraltar Rock.

SCIRT programme on the home straight

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

the city is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

What’s happening with some major projects:

• We’re almost finished connecting homes in Aranui to their new resilient vacuum wastewater

system. Storm water and roading work will continue until the end of the year.

• We’re more than two thirds through extensive repairs to the wastewater, storm water, fresh water and

roading networks in Parklands.

• We’ve repaired or rebuilt more than 100 bridges:

• Durham Street Overbridge repairs are now finished.

The historic Helmore’s Lane Bridge reopened to pedestrians and cyclists on 5

September after major rebuilding.

• Gloucester Street Bridge demolition work is done, reconstructing the bridge is well

underway and the deck is almost finished.

• Lyttelton is still busy with ongoing retaining wall repairs, underground pipe and roading repairs.

• Repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and Bryndwr are due to

finish at the end of September.

Your support is helping us to get the job done. Thank you from the SCIRT team.

Cr Manji is running

Anthony Rimell, Cr

Gough has been elected

The company prides itself on efficient

The Star

The CTV mayoral debate – why

Lianne Dalziel and John Minto went head to

head last week in the first mayoral debate

televised on CTV. Star assistant editor Shelley

Robinson took a look from the sideline

THE VERY different lives of the

city’s two mayoral candidates

was apparent from the moment

they walked into the New

Zealand Broadcasting School

television studio.

John Minto brought his wife

Bronwen Summers, who quietly

knitted for one of her 10 grandchildren

in the back of the studio

audience, while current Mayor

Lianne Dalziel brought her campaign

manager who was glued

to his cellphone updating his

Facebook page with photos of his

candidate.

Standing at the lecterns, where

the duo would discuss issues

facing the city for the next half

hour, Lianne, appearing nervous,

fidgeted and pulled at her black

tailored jacket, reassuringly

touching her necklace. John,

in a brown jacket reminiscent

of a eccentric professor, stood

pensive, hands clasped behind

his back.

The campaign manager lurked

close to Lianne, while Bronwen

clicked away with her knitting

needles, chatting warmly about

the support John had at Hornby

High School where he teaches.

“I’ll put away my knitting

before it starts. I don’t want to be

on telly knitting,” she whispered.

For the sound-check, the apparent

gulf widened – the school

teacher v the seasoned politican.

“It was a fabulous day at

Hornby High School today. We

studied the architecture plans for

the new buildings to make sure

the rebuild goes smoothly,” said

John.

Sound check Lianne: “Today

has been very busy. I greeted the

cast and crew of The Changeover

including actor Tim Spall and I

must admit I am a bit of fan of

him.”

But it became clear during the

debate that Lianne and John,

could be great pals. If they joined

forces – by crikey Gerry Brownlee

and his cronies would have

their work cut out for them.

They agree on more things

than they disagree on. While you

pick yourself up off the floor and

dust yourself off I’ll explain why.

They come from very similar

backgrounds of social justice and

unions.

Right off the bat, they agreed

with one another on the socalled

‘rock star economy’.

“Absolute myth” said John.

“If you go through the east of

Christchurch through Linwood,

Aranui, New Brighton or west of

the city to Hornby . . . you will

find unemployment is high and

families are absolutely struggling

. . . we have an economy propped

up by Government funding.”

This was the moment, where

I wondered why the heck Sir

Bob Jones labelled him the

“screaming skull” – he is a man

of the people and makes his

points calmly.

Lianne said: “I do agree that

the rock star economy is nonsense”.

Well okay then. They are just

doing a few knee bends and

squats – getting warmed up.

Asset sales will surely get them

fired up.

John, standing for Keep Our

Assets, was very clear that nothing

should be sold and savings

could be made by renegotiating

the time frames for the anchor

projects.

And while we are at it, he

mused, do you think the city

council could maybe stop giving

rich-lister property developers

$300,000 of ratepayers’ money to

put in energy efficient systems for

their $150 million developments?

Ah, nice one John, we enjoyed

that immensely.

He was, of course, referring to

the city council giving the money

to property developer Antony

Gough earlier this year for The

Terrace rebuild project.

Lianne, deftly tap danced her

way around replying to that – no

way was she going to touch that

particular bomb.

Lianne and John could be mates

But she took the wind squarely

out of John’s KOA sails.

Showing some fire, reminiscent

of the Lianne that 72,000

people voted for in 2013, she said,

not only had the city council

increased its asset base, in fact

it did not need to sell anything

anymore.

“In terms of asset sales going

forward there [is] nothing we

need to be doing in order to balance

the books,” she said.

Erm John?

“I’m delighted to hear it – it’s a

big change from where the mayor

has been leading the programme

to sell . . .”

Right then – what about those

anchor projects then and that

pesky cost-share agreement?

A feisty Lianne was not going

to take the blame for that

particular balls up. The previous

council tied her hands binding

her to an agreement that it had to

abide to even if the city council

didn’t get its insurance payout.

What rotters.

But, said John, you are renegotiating

it right now, surely you

have some influence?

What do you reckon Lianne,

could we change the Convention

Centre then as it’s likely to suck

the bone marrow from the taxpayers’

coffers?

“I have as much influences as

the viewer sitting at home – as

much influence,” said Lianne

throwing up her hands.

“For some reason the previous

council decided to leave the

entire Convention Centre to the

Government,” she said.

Free buses then John?

He has copped flak for his free

public transport – mostly because

the city council can’t make

that call. Oops.

But he was prepared.

Take $20 million from the New

Zealand Transport Agency’s

$950 million for roading upgrades

and put it into the free

buses – it’s feasible, surely the

mayor has influence?

Lianne wasn’t having a bar of

it – you can’t change the bus routes

because it is Environment Canterbury’s

patch and if you do it means

city ratepayers will be stumping up

the cash for the Waimakariri and

Selwyn residents to come in and

out of the city.

John was quick to spot a weakness.

“I think that is very small

minded comment which gives

local government a bad name . . .

we have to work with people.”

(Dalziel interrupts)

“Why shouldn’t they contribute

to the cost,” she demanded.

“Of course they should and

that is a negotiation the new

mayor will have to do,” said John.

“Which is what I am trying to

do,” said Lianne, almost under

her breath.

That was it. That was the only

moment in the night where the

two candidates really sparred.

There was no moment more

clear that both candidates are

similarly aligned on social justice

and empowering communities as

when they discussed housing and

its effect on mental health.

Both want the city council

to get involved in rent-to-own

schemes.

But when it came to insurance

companies and their treatment

of residents, John had Lianne in

a corner.

“Being a nice guy has failed

. . . the mayor should be saying

[to insurance companies] this is

not good enough, you get down

and make decent offers to these

people,” he said.

It’s complex, said Lianne diplomatically,

her top priority was

getting the city council’s insurance

settled so it could begin to

rebuild the city.

Cue credits.

Well, after three years of carefully

chosen, media managed

written comments, it was a

welcome relief to see Lianne once

again in fine form, showing fire

in her belly.

And Sir Bob Jones shame

on you, you big bully, John is

certainly no screaming skull –

he has quiet intelligence and is

supreme under pressure.

But to be honest, I like my candidates

to really fight for my vote.

In spite of that, I’ve had to

steam open the letter containing

my ballot form. Based on the

debate I’ve changed my vote.

I was not expecting that.

Well-being survey shows

quality of life increasing

THE LATEST well-being

survey shows Cantabrians’

quality of life continues to

rise, with fewer people still

feeling the effects of the

earthquakes.

Minister of Health Jonathan

Coleman and Associate Minister

supporting Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Nicky Wagner this

week released the findings of

the 2016 Canterbury Wellbeing

Survey and Index.

The survey is the first since

the Canterbury District Health

Board and Ministry of Health

assumed responsibility for

monitoring the psychosocial

recovery of Cantabrians

from Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority in March

this year.

It’s heartening to see 82 per

cent of Cantabrians reporting

their quality of life is either good

or extremely good – up from 77

per cent last year.

But we know residents continue

to face challenges and need

support.

This year’s survey results

found more people reporting

anxiety about aftershocks.

This is no surprise following

Gerry Brownlee

the Valentine’s Day aftershock,

which undoubtedly put people

on edge again.

While there are many signs

of progress, the impacts of the

quakes are still being felt by

some.

EQC and private insurers are

working hard to resolve outstanding

insurance claims, made

up largely of the most complex

cases, including multi-unit

buildings where more than one

insurer and one type of policy is

involved.

In September 2012, 37 per cent

of survey respondents said dealing

with EQC and their insurer

was having a strong negative

impact on their lives. This fell to

13 per cent last year and is now

sitting at just 10 per cent.

I’m looking forward to more

positive progress in the Garden

City over the spring and summer

months.

More progress needed

Megan Woods

THIS

WEEK saw

the release

of one of

the most

important

report cards

on the state of our city’s recovery,

the Canterbury District Health

Board’s Canterbury Wellbeing

Index. The result of a major

survey of local people as well

as statistics from key areas like

health, education, housing and

the economy, the index confirms

we have a lot to be proud of in

the progress we’ve made since the

earthquakes.

Eighty-two per cent of people

in our city now rate their quality

of life as good or very good, up

five per cent on last year’s survey.

According to the survey, people

are also feeling really good about

the number of new community

facilities opening up and making

this a better place to live.

The really great thing about

this survey however, is that it

very clearly identifies the roadblocks

that are still holding us

back from fully recovering and

reaching our potential.

Three big issues come through

very clearly in this survey.

The first is sustained pressure

on our mental health services.

Demand for mental health services

was 21 per cent higher than

before the earthquake, yet the

CDHB has a $23 million shortfall

in mental health funding.

The second issue is the flagging

performance of the local

economy. According to this

survey, Christchurch now has

some of the lowest GDP growth

in the country – just 1.9 per cent

compared to 5.8 per cent in the

year before.

Finally, there is the ongoing

saga of substandard earthquake

repairs, which this survey reveals

is having a widespread effect on

thousands of homeowners. A

full 43 per cent of Canterbury

homeowners say they are worried

about the quality of their repairs

or worried they might need rerepairs.

Six years on, it’s clear that

there is still a real need for faster

progress in Canterbury. That

means a Government committed

to the region – one not afraid to

admit there are issues and come

up with a plan to fix them.

Former city councillor

returning for a cause

A former city councillor

during the Sir Hamish Hay

era is making a bid to return

to local politics. Gabrielle

Stuart reports

DURING HIS nine years as a

city councillor, John Burn served

on dozens of committees, led the

city council as acting mayor and

had a say in many big projects

which shaped Christchurch –

but his proudest achievement

was a humble footbridge.

After 27 years away from local

politics he is campaigning once

again for a seat on both the Canterbury

District Health Board

and on the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board,

hoping to do the “small things

that make a big difference to the

community”.

The Park Terrace footbridge,

which runs between Salisbury

St and Hagley Park, was one of

those things.

“I was the only one of the 21

councillors that wanted it. I

said people have nowhere else

to cross, it’s ridiculous, so I

moaned on and moaned on for

more than a year, until we got

FOR THE COMMUNITY: John

Burn stands on the footbridge

on Park Terrace.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

our bridge.”

Some of those “silly things”

were where a community board

member could make the biggest

difference to the community, he

said.

He served as a city councillor

until 1989, the same year the

late Sir Hamish stepped down

as mayor, and he said he enjoyed

the lively debates in the council

chambers over those years.

He was involved in the council

amalgamation being worked

through during that time, and

he earned a public profile when

he supported the Wizard in his

“Telephone Box War” in 1988

in repainting blue Telecom telephone

boxes around Christchurch

red.

A retired barrister, Mr Burn

spent 23 years practising law in

Sydney, only returning two years

ago after the death of his wife,

Wendy Glasson.

She died after 12 years battling

terminal lymphoma, which was

what motivated him to run for

a place on the health board, he

said.

“I spent an awful lot of time in

there with her, and, quite genuinely,

I enjoy hospitals,” he said.

He said the doctors and staff

at the hospital had always made

him feel like “part of the crew”

even during the most difficult

times, and he hoped to be able to

pay that back through work on

the health board.

He was also concerned about

health board’s low performance

in areas like elective surgery and

cancer treatment, its financial

situation and the amount of

decisions that it was making

behind closed doors, he said.

Major fundraiser to

top up food bank

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT 270 people will fill

Christ’s College’s dining hall on

Sunday to raise money to help

top up the city’s food bank.

The Jonny Schwass Sunday

Lunch began in 2008 to raise

money for the Christchurch City

Mission food bank.

Mr Schwass, a chef who owns

Harlequin Public House, approached

the City Mission asking

to do the fundraiser lunch.

He, along with a team of

other people from the hospitality

industry, cook up a three course

meal for the visitors. The food is

donated for the cause.

City missioner Michael Gorman

said it was one of the largest

fundraisers on the mission’s

calendar.

Last year’s event raised

$25,000 for the food bank, and

Mr Gorman said he expected

the same amount to

be raised again.

“It’s great fun, it’s

quite casual.”

New Zealand

actor and comedian

Mark Hadlow (right) will MC

the lunch, and a $5 note signed

by Sir Edmund Hillary will be

auctioned off, along with other

items.

All the proceeds from ticket

sales and the auction go straight

to the food bank.

Mr Gorman said the very first

Sunday lunch was held at the

Caledonian Hall on Kilmore St,

before one was held at the Isaac

Theatre Royal.

“We’ve now had them at the

dining hall at Christ’s College.

It’s rather like Hogwarts from

Harry Potter,” he said.

“We’ve had people who still

come who went to the very first

one.”

Pensioner stole $110,000

to play poker machines

• By Kurt Bayer

A CANTERBURY woman

who stole $110,000 from an

intellectually disabled woman to

fund her pokies gambling habit

displayed an “astonishingly

and reprehensible” breach of

trust, a judge said this week in

sentencing her to five months of

home detention.

The 66-year-old problem

gambler, who was granted permanent

name suppression, had

enduring power of attorney over

the woman with the mental age

of about 10 from 1997 to February

last year, the district court

was told.

But between May 2009 and

February 18 last year, she made

450 fraudulent transactions

from the victim’s bank accounts.

The majority of the transactions

were made at bars, taverns,

and gaming establishments

around Christchurch, the West

Coast of the South Island and

Auckland.

Police say that she stole more

than $110,000 in total.

When police caught up with

her, she admitted having a

had been diagnosed with a brain

tumour around the time the offending

started.

She was extremely remorseful,

had repaid some money, and

had vowed to repay the rest by

selling her home to come up

with the remaining amount, Mr

Shamy said.

“She’s at something of a loss

to explain why, in her 60s,

she’d started stealing from [the

woman] who she was close to,”

Mr Shamy said.

The victim went without sufficient

and adequate clothing and

accommodation because her

money had been taken, Judge

David Strettell noted.

It was not clear whether the

woman stopped stealing the

money “because enough was

enough”, or because a member

of the victim’s family had

started making inquiries about

her poor circumstances.

“It can only be seen to be a

astonishingly and reprehensible

act of breach of trust,” Judge

Strettell said.

“She was a person in a very

unfortunate circumstance

herself and one who relied, in no

doubt a very trusting manner,

in you looking after her, caring

for her needs and caring for her

funds.”

There was some suggestion

that the woman may have been

led by others who could have

benefited from her stealing, the

judge said, but found there was

no way to say if that was true.

He accepted she had shown

true remorse and said it was

“highly unlikely” that she will

come before the courts again.

Judge Strettell sentenced the

woman to five months of home

detention.

As the woman had already

repaid some money, he ordered

her to pay $61,000 of reparation

– including $30,000 this

week and the remaining $31,000

within nine months.

Judge Strettell also made a

final suppression order of the

woman’s name, along with the

victim’s name and place that she

lives, on the grounds that publication

of their details would put

undue stress on the victim.

Poor visibility,

dark clothing

factors in

road death

• By Tom Doudney

POOR VISIBILITY and an

unfortunate choice of clothing

are thought to be factors in the

death of a man hit by a car west of

Templeton last month.

Todd Jackson, 48, was visiting

from Queensland where he had

been living for the last 10 years,

when he died on August 26.

Mr Jackson was walking along

Newtons Rd when he was struck by

a car driven by an 18-year-old man

who lived in the Rolleston area.

Police will not decide on whether

charges will be laid until a serious

crash investigation has been completed.

Sergeant Grant Stewart said

visibility had been poor when Mr

Jackson was struck, as it was about

6.50am. This along with where he

was and his “unfortunate” choice

of clothing – a camouflage top and

dark pants – were thought to be

contributing factors.

Alcohol was not a factor and

speed was not suspected to be either,

but the investigation was yet to formally

reach that conclusion.

Malcolm Whalley

Making a difference – building

Habitat for Humanity’s Malcolm Whalley is

looking for volunteers to join him in building

homes in Samoa before typhoon season hits. He

spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his experiences

helping people after disasters overseas,

discovering similar needs here in Christchurch,

and the dangers of contracting “habitat-itis”

So how did these trips start for

you?

After the tsunami in Thailand

in 2004 I and my wife, Jennie,

wanted to help, and we didn’t

want to just donate because with

some funds two thirds will go

into admin before it gets there.

We collected a team of about

12 people from our church who

wanted to go, and we kept nagging,

because the squeaky wheel

gets the oil, until they agreed

to let us in. So we went for five

weeks.

And what was it like?

It was quite shocking. There

were still a lot of dead bodies

there, so you could smell that

death smell everywhere you

went. We were building block

toilets mostly, and as you were

digging in the washed up sand

you would find people’s wallets,

or children’s toys. It was very

emotionally draining. And

of course, we spoke no Thai

language, so you were having to

sign to communicate. We stayed

in the top level of a resort there,

but the entire bottom level had

been wiped out and there was no

power and no luxuries.

Coming home after that must

have been a shock too?

Yes, we were asking why do

we have so much stuff? We had

a debrief afterward, which is

important, because you do get a

kind of culture shock. But after

coming back we got involved in

a Habitat for Humanity project

in Ilam, and then we both got

co-opted on to the board. After

that trip we both had what we call

in the industry habitat-itis: Once

you do one project you don’t want

to stop. Just making a difference

in people’s lives, that’s what does

it. We’ve done six trips now.

HELPING HANDS: Malcolm Whalley is trying to find about 30 volunteers willing to travel to

Samoa to help build homes there before typhoon season hits in November.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Tell me about this trip?

The wider goal is to build

300 homes in Fiji, Samoa and

Tonga, where a lot of homes were

devastated by Cyclone Winstone,

but we have 42 homes we want

to build by November, before

the typhoon season hits. It’s a

challenge, but we can build them

fast, because they are traditional

style homes with no walls, and

most of the components have

been already constructed at the

resource centre there – we call

it Bunnings. The cost for the

volunteers is $2995, which covers

flights, accommodation, meals

and medical insurance.

homes in disaster prone areas

And on some of our trips we

have slept communally on mattresses

on the floor, but this is

in a house with hot water, so it’s

luxury.

With no walls on the homes,

wouldn’t the wind just whip

straight through when typhoons

hit?

It is actually better, because

you don’t have a solid wall for the

wind to hit, and they don’t have

a whole lot of furniture. Usually

everyone goes to the village hall

until it passes. In one village in

Nepal, the 68 Habitat homes

we built were the only ones left

standing in the village after the

disaster there.

And what are you looking for

in terms of volunteers?

The most important thing is

just a willingness to help. We

took a 75-year-old bricklayer to

Thailand, and we’ve had everyone

from electricians to lawyers.

All you need is willing hands and

to be physically able. But I don’t

know if it’s just the time of year,

but it’s been very difficult to find

volunteers and put teams together.

We’re also about to open our

second Restore in Christchurch

in October, so we will be needing

more local volunteers too, even

just for a few hours a week.

And tell me about the work

you do through Habitat in

Christchurch?

Locally we’ve just finished

21 houses, which means there

are 42 kids in that community

who have been living either in

substandard housing or shocking

rental housing, who are now in

homes. Of those 21, 19 families

had children with health issues,

and since they have moved into

their new homes they have had

no hospital visits, so that shows

what a difference it makes. But

we had a list of 47 families, and

had to chose from them the 21

for the homes. That was very

hard. It makes you realise there

is so much need here, so much

terrible housing, and the amount

of poverty in Christchurch is

unbelievable.

So what do you do for work

here?

I’m an aircraft engineer for

Air New Zealand, so in layman’s

terms I’m essentially a mechanical

breakdown help desk.

And they don’t mind you

leaving for these trips at short

notice?

No! I’m in a good position,

because I’ve been there a few

BUILDING SITE: One of Malcolm Whalley’s teams working

on a traditional open-sided home during a recent Habitat for

Humanity trip to Samoa.

years now, and have too much

leave built up, so they don’t mind

when I take it. But it is sometimes

short notice, especially for

disaster relief, or we have trips

cancelled without much notice.

And it doesn’t sound like

you’d get a lot of time outside

all this work, but when you do,

what do you do with it?

We have a holiday house in

Mt Somers, so we spend a bit of

time there. Not much in winter,

because there is no electricity,

but a lot of time in summer. I

met with a friend recently who

asked do you still do four-wheel

driving, because I used to do a lot

of that. But I said no, because it

was an interest that was all about

me and now I’d much rather

do something for someone else.

When you’re passionate about

something you make the time to

do it, and it doesn’t feel like work.

And how did you meet your

wife?

We met through my sister,

when she and Jennie did nursing

together – and we’ve just

celebrated our 36th wedding

anniversary.

And what is it that keeps you

so passionate about this work?

It’s just the fact we are making

a difference in people’s lives. It’s

not only a life-changing experience

for the families we help,

but for the volunteers too. When

we have handover days it really

brings tears to your eyes to see

what it means to them. And we

don’t just give houses away, it’s

a hand up not a handout. The

Habitat model is that families

put in 450 “sweat hours” into

their own homes, even if that just

means picking up a paintbrush,

so they are often upskilling too.

So seeing the difference we are

making in families’ lives is really

special, although it’s just a speck

compared with what is needed.

Travel

Alpine high over scenic South Island

• By Mike Yardley

EVERY KIWI should take this

trip at least once.

It’s truly the flight of a lifetime

– and rightly billed as the Grand

Traverse. A one-hour romp with

New Zealand’s highest mountains,

ice and snow fields.

Short of being a mountain

Thar, it’s the easiest way to

enjoy an astonishingly intimate

encounter with the summit of

Aoraki/Mt Cook and the jagged

peaks of more than 140 mountains

that soar above 2000m

within Mount Cook National

Park. Like a rolling photo-shoot,

you’ll stare down the snout of

12 major glaciers, the beautiful,

turquoise glacier-fed lakes in the

east, and the serpentine ice fields

spilling down through the West

Coast’s ancient rainforests.

For more than 45 years, Air

Safaris, a family-owned business

headed up by Richard and Tim

Rayward, have exhilarated visitors

with their pioneering sightseeing

flight, the Grand Traverse.

On a crisp blue sky morning, I

lapped up some majestic mountain

ogling within the toasty confines

of a Gippsland GA8 plane,

where Richard joined our pilot,

Leon Hunter, in the cock-pit.

It’s pitch-perfect for this celestial

pocket of the world, because

it is so quiet and unobtrusive.

Taking-off from their Tekapo

base, I admire the sculpted landmark

of Mt John and the shimmering

turquoise magnificence

of the lake which looks even

Tasman

Glacier

and

river.

LIKE GLASS: Mt Tekapo from above. (Right) Mike Yardley with Leon Hunter, who pilots a Gippsland GA8 plane for Air Safaris’

Grand Traverse tour.

better, aloft.

Tracking north, the crisp

palette of blue and gold Mackenzie

colours soon gave way to the

jagged alpine terrain of snow and

ice. Leon pointed out some of the

vast high country sheep stations

like Godley Peaks and Glenmore,

home to the famous Merino

breed of sheep, as we traced the

braided channels of the Godley

River all the way up to the first

cluster of glaciers.

We then had our first tantalisingly

intimate encounter with

the face of a monster mountain,

the 3170m-high Malte Brun.

This imposing range separates

Murchison Glacier from the nation’s

longest ice flow, the mighty

Tasman Glacier, which slithers

down into Tasman Valley for

29km. The ice base is over 600m

thick, replenished with 50m of

annual snow fall.

Heading west and crossing

the Southern Alps, the relatively

calm flight suddenly took on the

sensation of being in a tumble

dryer, as the plane was buffeted

and bounced by a southwester’

updraft, as we threaded our way

through the fortress-like mountains.

It was nervously exhilarating.

What struck me the most is the

sheer expanse of the Southern

Alps, a snow-capped wonderland

that stretches wide and long in

search of the horizon, like the

alpine world’s equivalent of an

infinity pool.

Suddenly, the vast rainforest of

Westland National Park loomed

large, a great bosom of verdant

green rising up the slopes, juxtaposed

by the snowfield at the

head of Franz Josef Glacier. From

above, we marvelled at how this

“river of ice” plummets steeply,

almost touching the shoreline of

the Tasman Sea.

After a quick stop in Franz

Josef, where the mercury was

starkly higher than on the eastern

side of the Alps, we lifted

off again, gasping in awe at Fox

Glacier and Lake Matheson

before veering east for a close

inspection with more vaulted

peaks, notably the bridesmaid to

Aoraki, glorious Mt Tasman.

But nothing compares to the

ultimate frisson, a close encounter

with New Zealand’s mountain

monarch, Aoraki/Mt Cook. Leon

flew a perfect circle adjacent

to its summit to ensure all of

us could savour the majesty of

its cloud-piercing supremacy.

Standing supreme with its snow

and icefields tumbling down to

the glaciers below, I gazed in

awe at the summit, seemingly

so close I could nearly reach out

and touch it.

The final romp back to home

base gave us an encore viewing

of the sublime Tasman Glacier

and its braided receptacle, the

Tasman River, which glaciallyfeeds

the luminous turquoise

brilliance of Lake Pukaki. I

spotted some big bulky icebergs

floating in the terminal lake.

Finally, the burnt-pancake

sprawl of the Mackenzie Basin

monopolises the sweeping

panorama, where clearly visible

glacial deposits pepper-pot the

golden tussocks and desert-like

grasslands.

Everyone alighted from the

plane in a sweet state of ecstasy,

eye-poppingly overdosed by the

extravagant visual symphony

that is the Grand Traverse.

After wallowing in such a

head-swirl of achingly gorgeous

untamed scenery, the adrenaline

rush lingered long into the day.

The biggest dilemma you’ll face

is whether to try and photograph

and video the rolling kaleidoscope

of alpine wonders – or put

the camera down and just drink

it all in. Whatever impulse wins

the day, it is unquestionably the

flight of a lifetime.

Good day,

Mister Tom

It’s time to focus on tomatoes. Seeds sown

now will produce delicious results. Don’t

forget to branch out and try a few different

varieties

WORDS/PHOTOS: RACHEL VOGAN

GROWTH: You need the right tools to secure a

top crop this season.

NOT ALL things in life

need to be hard. For some,

the challenge of growing

your own ‘anything’ seems

insurmountable; for others,

it is as natural as riding

a bike. The truth is that

growing tomatoes is easier

than it seems.

All over the world, in the

most barren of soils (think

Africa), tomatoes are a

staple crop grown every

year. And yet, somehow,

with extreme temperatures

and little or no water they

seem to produce a crop. So,

how hard can it be? Not that

hard at all.

Like humans, most

plants have a few simple

requirements to flourish

and thrive; the more you

put into something the

more you will get out of it.

So if you fancy a crop of

Olympic proportions, roll

up your sleeves now and get

to work, arm yourself with

the best plants, soil, and

fertiliser and put aside some

time and, in a few months,

you will be picking fresh,

sweet, tasty tomatoes.

Start with the best

foundation. After all, you

wouldn’t build a house on a

flimsy base and expect good

results, would you?

For the best results

tomatoes need full sun, and

loads of it. It isn’t an option

to plant them anywhere

shady, or in an area with

limited air movement.

Sunlight is required to

initiate the flower buds,

aid in fruit formation and

development, improve

the plant’s ability to

photosynthesise, and, of

course, it helps ripen the

fruit. So, no room for

compromise here.

The engine room of the

tomato is the root zone.

Healthy roots is where the

plant finds its power to

grow. Not only do the roots

anchor the plant into the

soil, they are the main way

in which the plant absorbs

nutrients – a poor root

RED: ‘Campari’

is one of the

best varieties

you can look at

growing.

system is often the main

reason a crop will fail.

For a good, robust root

system, prepare the soil as

much as you can. A simple

dig over with the fork is all

that’s needed in the garden

– don’t go crazy adding

layers and layers of manure

or compost. Yes, these are

good for the soil, but they’re

also laden with nitrogen,

which encourages the plant

to produce more foliage than

flowers, e.g. more leaves than

fruit. Add in a little organic

matter to help the soil hold

onto moisture, but don’t

go overboard, it’s all about

balance.

While tomatoes will grow

on the smell of an oily rag

in third world countries, for

the best results it’s best to

feed them what they love.

Healthy, well-nourished

plants will reward you with

a sweeter, juicy harvest. I

could get all technical about

NPK and trace-element

nutrients, but that turns

most people off, so all you

really need to know about is

tomato fertiliser. This does

what yeast does to bread – it

makes it grow. Dig in a good

amount of tomato fertiliser,

which is everywhere in the

shops and pays dividends

every time. Avoid using lime

or anything with a highnitrogen

content, like lawn

fertiliser or super phosphate.

The trick to getting more

out of your tomato fertiliser

is working it into the soil

before you plant, rather than

sprinkling it on top of the

soil where it takes longer for

the roots to absorb it.

Gardening

Guide

Hanging Baskets

PESTS: Look out for whitefly, which can be a real problem for tomatoes.

If you don’t have time

to prevent the shock

of transplanting your

seedlings, skip this section.

However, if kindness is

more your style, invest

in some seaweed tonic to

soak your plants in prior to

planting. This is great stuff.

Seaweed is packed full of

goodies and nutrients that

prevent the plant stressing

too much at planting time.

Simply half-fill a bucket or

put a few inches of water

in the wheelbarrow, add

in some Seasol or seaweed

tonic and let the seedlings

soak in there for a few

minutes, then they are

ready to plant.

Next, simply plant the

tomato. If the plant is

grafted, make sure the

graft piece is above the

soil to avoid it rotting

off or being damaged.

Otherwise, as long as the

hole is bigger than the

root ball, there is nothing

to it. Water after planting.

(If you have any rootdrenching

seaweed liquid

left over, water, then in

with that.)

Being such vigorous

plants, tomatoes do need

to be staked or supported

in some way. It helps keep

the fruit off the ground

and also to support the

branches, which become

heavy as the crop develops.

In windy areas it also helps

prevent the plant from

snapping off or getting

damages. The bigger the

stake the better. Bamboo

canes are okay at a push –

if using them, put in two

or three around each plant.

If, for some reason, you

can’t plant in the soil, tubs

and containers are good

options for tomatoes. The

bigger the pot, bag or

container the better, each

plant needs to have a root

area of at least 10 litres

– the size of an average

week is all that is needed

for the majority of the

growing season. Frequent

watering encourages the

roots to sit near the surface

to get moisture, whereas

you want them to wriggle

deeply into the soil to

anchor themselves well

into the soil to where the

temperatures are cool.

Surface roots burn easily

and do compromise the

crop if the soil gets too hot

too often.

If diamonds are a girl’s

best friend then seaweed

brews have to be that

of the tomato. Once a

month, a drench with a

seaweed-based tonic will

significantly aid in the

development of your crop.

If greenfly or white fly

appear on your plants, deal

with them straight away;

they suck the life out of

plants. A good strong blast

with the hose may work,

but it is risky. Soapy water

will knock them back a

bit, too. For a sure-fire

method, I use Beat A Bug,

a natural bug spray that

comes in a ready-to-use

trigger bottle. This was

off the market for a while,

but it’s now back in the

shops, so hunt it down. My

bottle sits in the garden

under my seat and I blast

anything I see – slugs

and snails too – this stuff

works every time, so any

unwanted livestock in my

garden gets the heave-ho

quick smart.

If you have no room left in your garden

or you live in an apartment and miss

having a garden, then hanging baskets

are the perfect solution. Hanging baskets

offer a seasonal burst of colour that you

can plant to reflect garden trends or

your favourite colour combinations. But

don’t limit yourself to flowers; consider

incorporating herbs or veggies for an

edible sensation.

Getting Started

You will need a hanging basket, potting

mix and plants, but you may also want to

consider sphagnum moss and Oderings

Total Replenish.

If you want to have the sides planted, now

is the time to cut some cross or diamond

shapes into the liner. Alternatively, you

can just plant the top of the basket and use

cascading plants around the edges.

Select a quality potting mix. For our hanging

baskets we use Oderings Potting & Basket

Mix. This is a mix that Oderings specifically

designed with baskets in mind. To avoid

baskets drying out too quickly you can also

incorporate sphagnum moss in the soil

when planting.

Easy ways to introduce

colour to your home

Having colour that drips from the

eaves of your house, balcony or deck is

easy with these hanging baskets. But

don’t limit yourself to flowers – herbs

and veggies work great too!

Ramblin Petunias

Available in a range of colours, this lovely

bedding plant has small flowers that burst

to life in late spring and throughout summer.

Fill the basket with soil to just below the first

layer of cuts you have made in the sides of

the liner, then firm the soil. You are ready to

put in the first layer of plants. An easy way

to get your plants through these cut holes

without damaging their roots is to wrap the

roots in newspaper and push it through.

Remove the paper and then fill the soil up to

the next layer of cuts and repeat the process

until you are 5cm from the top of the basket.

I always leave this 5cm so the basket is

easier to water.

Now it is the time to plant the top of the

basket. Pick a larger, more upright plant

for the centre piece, then evenly space the

cascading or smaller-growing plants around

the edges.

a range of companies involved with the Expo

individual interests are so diverse. One woman

may love the latest in makeup or skincare but the

woman beside her may be more interested in

cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail or sampling

handmade cheese. It’s great on the weekend

to see all the various women visit the show,

from teenagers to business women, mothers to

grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming more common

for us to see three generations visit the Expo

together as well, with the daughter, mother and

grandmother all enjoying the show and spending

the day with each other.”

Hillmorton High School

Laying the ground work

for school’s major upgrade

Currently we are writing our

Education Brief as Hillmorton High

School moves into the

Christchurch Schools

Rebuild programme

where we will be working

with our architects in

2017 to design our

$12 million upgrade.

Since becoming a Year

7-13 school following

the closure of Manning

Intermediate, we now

have a well-developed

Middle School (Years

7-10) and a Senior

School (Years 11-13).

This is allowing us to

Ann

Brokenshire

concentrate on structures and

pedagogical practices which meet

the unique needs of each group,

and to also ensure our younger

students have the

advantage of middle

year specialist teachers

in “Basecamp” as well

as the high school

subject specialists in

their “Explore” classes.

The opportunity

to modernise our

buildings will allow us to

teach and learn in more

flexible and adaptive

ways to meet the

diverse learning needs

of our students.

Our new spaces will

be adaptable so that we can

teach large groups, classes, small

www.hillmorton.school.nz

groups and individuals, and the

school facilities will be available for

community use. We are committed

to being an integral part of our wider

community (from Knights Stream,

Halswell all the way through to West

Spreydon).

Working with the wider community

we can ensure that the young people

in south west Christchurch will all

reach their potential academically

while also gaining the skills to be

inclusive, open minded, confident,

humble and friendly.

They will indeed go on “create better

futures” for us all.

WITHOUT DOUBT, parenting

four young children is a

challenge. There’s chaos, high

energy, and frequent stress but

we’ve somehow stumbled into a

familiar routine to make it work.

It’s a mad juggle, but it’s now our

norm and we wouldn’t have it

any other way.

But the most challenging

aspect of having a large family is

finding quality time with each of

our girls.

The demands of (almost)

three-year-old twin toddlers are

high. They constantly seek out

our love and support and it’s a

sure task to meet their roundthe-clock

needs (not to mention,

exhausting).

While I accept this goes with

the territory of having small children,

my conscience is pushing

me to not only meet their basic

needs, but try and offer up some

quality time with them both (as

well as their two older sisters).

Our five-year-old is fairly

independent with dressing, eating

and sorting herself out but is

currently in a very gushy phase

– constantly writing notes and

drawing pictures declaring her

undying love for her family. She

still possesses a very toddler-like

innocence, with her chipmunk

tones and chubby cheeks and

adores climbing onto my lap for

a cuddle. Knowing this gesture

has a definite shelf life, I cherish

these precious moments and

pretty much drop everything to

squeeze her tight.

Our eldest, (almost) sevenyear-old

daughter is well on her

way to full independence. No

longer does she need me to tend

to her every whim, and she’s

confident to make decisions, take

action and report back on her

many adventures. But she still

Melissa McDonnell

wants/needs me close by, and

climbs into my bed every morning

for a cuddle and quick chat

to start the day. Her emotions

run close to the surface and she’s

working hard to understand

them. She cried at the end of a

movie the other day – she knew

it was sad, but couldn’t figure

out why it invoked her tears. We

talked it through and engaged in

The Star

a true, two-way discussion about

interpreting her feelings and

what to make of them.

This was a parenting milestone

for me. It felt as if there was a real

shift in our relationship, where

it was more about the two of us

discussing an issue, rather than

a mother teaching/preaching to

her listening/learning daughter.

It made me feel as if we are

transitioning from the stage of

my kids “wanting me” to be with

them, as opposed to just “needing

me”. And while I have no

idea how this will play out in reality,

what I do know is that this

phase will also have a shelf life,

and I embrace it wholeheartedly.

In saying that, I won’t try and

be my daughters’ BFF. But what I

want to do is forge a trusting relationship

in which they understand

I am always there for them, and

that I will value their thoughts,

answer their questions and create

an environment where they can

express themselves freely.

In order to foster that, I aim

to try and spend at least 15 solid

minutes of alone time with each

of my daughters, every day.

Yes, this will be hard, and

quite possibly, I am being overly

ambitious. But I also hope that

as time goes on and their independence

grows, this will result

in more quality time with each

of them. Well, I’m hoping so

anyway.

1 tsp Sea salt flakes

1 Garlic bulb

1 Tbsp Flour

1 cup Vegetable stock, or light

chicken stock

1 Lemon, cut into wedges

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 deg

C. Trim the lamb of any excess

lumps of fat, and make four or

five shallow scores across the

surface of the skin on each side.

Cut the preserved lemon into

tiny dice, and roughly chop the

thyme leaves, discarding any

stalks.

Press the lemon and thyme

with two tablespoons of the

oil over the skin of the lamb,

making sure some is rubbed

into the scored surface. Grind

a generous amount of black

pepper over the whole leg. Slice

the potatoes thickly (about

2-3cm slices), then place them in

the bottom of a heavy roasting

pan and toss with the remaining

oil and the salt. Separate the

garlic cloves but leave the skin

on and scatter them among the

potatoes.

Place the leg in the centre of

the dish, with some potatoes

directly underneath, and the rest

sitting around the lamb. Pour

in the stock and place the dish

in the oven. After 15 minutes,

reduce the heat to 175 deg C and

cook for 1½ hours. Adjust the

time to suit the size of the leg – if

it’s more than 2kg, it may need

an extra 15-30 minutes.

If you like your lamb well

cooked, take a little longer.

Remove the dish from the oven

and place the leg and potatoes

and most of the garlic on a

warmed serving dish. Cover

lightly with foil. You may like to

turn the oven off and return the

lamb there to keep warm while

it rests.

Place the roasting dish over a

heated element on the stove top,

and stir the flour into the pan

drippings, stirring constantly

and adding a little water to make

a sauce or gravy. When it is thick

and bubbling, it is ready. Carve

the lamb into thick slices on the

dish, with the potatoes.

Pour over the gravy and serve

with steamed green beans, peas

and baby carrots and lemon

wedges. Wine match: An

intensely savoury Wai rarapa

pinot noir.

flavour.

Rural girl to be face

of fashion week

The Star

What you

were wearing

• By Annabelle Dick

FROM FARM girl to the face of fashion

week, Zara Graham is a rural girl aiming

for international supermodel stardom.

The 17-year-old from Lincoln, has

been selected as the face of the upcoming

Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week 2016

after winning Canterbury Model of the

Year last year.

“It’s such an amazing honour,” she

said.

Miss Graham has been modelling for

four years with the Canterbury Fashion

Beauty Week founders modelling agency

DS Model Management.

Miss Graham grew up in Lincoln on a

farm surrounded by four brothers.

While she confesses she’s a “bit of a

tom-boy” who loves the farm life and

animals, she’s always been passionate

about the fashion industry.

“I love how it makes me feel. I love

dressing up, having my make up done,

wearing amazing clothes and definitely

the confidence that comes with it,” she

said.

Miss Graham is studying at the National

School of Aesthetics and plans on

following the modelling circuit overseas.

Her ultimate goal is to become a Victoria’s

Secret angel.

Next month, Miss Graham will strut

her stuff at the Canterbury Fashion

Beauty Week summer collections show

at the Lincoln Event Centre.

More than 20 fashion houses will

show their collections ranging from Cup

Day fashion and resort wear to plus size

clothing.

Canterbury Fashion Beauty Week

founder and organiser Denyse Saunders

said this year is the first time the show

will feature plus size models

and clothing.

“It’s had a huge response

and it’s going to be really

unique. I think women

are sick of seeing

young size six girls

on the catwalk that

don’t smile or have

personality.

We’ll

see real

women

who

people can relate to showing real clothes

that they can go and buy,” Ms Saunders

said.

She said the major show will feature

lots of colour and men’s and women’s

wear to cater to all people.

Fashion week will also include an

SPCA Op Shop fashion parade on Sunday,

October 9 to support the SPCA and

a hats and high tea event on Tuesday,

October 11.

The summer collections show will take

place on Thursday, October 13 at the

Lincoln Event Centre and Canterbury

Fashion Beauty Week runs

from October 9-14.

Evita production

world class

Evita

Produced by Showbiz Christchurch

Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by

Andrew Llyod Webber

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

EVITA IS the most beautifully poignant

production I have seen in a long time.

Showbiz Christchurch had big shoes to

fill, producing a highly acclaimed musical

about a fascinating woman – the second

wife of Argentine president, Eva Peron.

I have adored Andrew Llyod Webber’s

music from a young age and was excited

as well as had high expectations for the

show.

To say Showbiz Christchurch succeeded

is an understatement – you could have

been fooled for thinking you were at a

show overseas. Or even better, audiences

were transported to the steamy hot land

of Argentina. The production was world

class.

From the moment the curtain lifts, the

stage roars into life with the haunting

opening number of Requiem For Evita involving

the whole cast.

The Latin chant lamenting Eva’s death

powered through the auditorium sending

chills down the spine.

The show then races back in time where

a 15-year-old Eva moves to Buenos Aires

after her first love affair with tango singer

Agustin Magaldi.

I did not know much about Eva before

but from the portrayal in this show I

saw she was an ambitious woman of the

people that rose to fame before dying at

age 33.

Emily Burns’ impersonation of Eva was

glorious and she is without a doubt on her

way to stardom. She illuminated the show

with poise and worldly professionalism.

Her voice blazed through the audience

with regal power. It does not take a rocketscientist

to work out the role of Eva is extremely

ambitious. But Burns conquered

the role with elegance.

Along with Burns, Jack Fraser as the

role of Che was a powerhouse narrating

the show, while criticising Eva on her

morals as she rose to the top. He lit up the

stage from the moment he entered with a

Book by Marshall Brickman and

Rick Elice. Music and lyrics by

Andrew Lippa. Based on

characters created by

Charles Addams.

BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY: Jack Fraser

as Che with Emily Burns as Eva Peron

starring in Showbiz Christchurch’s

latest production of Evita.

golden rendition of Oh What A Circus.

The show is predominantly musical with

rarely any speech at all. I can only imagine

the strenuous difficulty of the music the

orchestra led by Richard Marrett was

required to play.

The orchestra gave the show the magic

it needed and I think as a city we are lucky

to have such talented musicians.

One of many highlights of the show was

Burns’ performance of Don’t Cry For Me

Argentina. Burns rose to the challenge and

excelled in her own way rather than shadowing

previous interpretations of the song.

But Eva’s Final Broadcast where Burns

sings a far more tender version of Don’t

Cry for Me Argentina due to Eva’s fast

approaching death is so heart-breaking it

brings a tear to the eye.

Eva Peron need not fear to be forgotten

with this magnificent interpretation of

in my opinion one of the most musically

challenging shows ever created.

Evita will be running at the Isaac Theatre

Royal through to October 1. To book tickets

Celebrating Dutch TV

with original show

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE ONLY Dutch-language

be putting on an original

production celebrating drama,

humour and love.

Toenail Culture Ale will be

presenting their new drama

next month based on TV

drama series Goedenavond

The original show, written by

Toenail Culture Ale member

Annekatrien Ver Braak is about

the celebrations around the 12

and a half year anniversary of

television in the Netherlands.

Toenail Culture Ale founder

Annie Van der Dussen said the play will

include a bit of family drama but will be

a lot of fun to watch.

519 Moorhouse Ave | Ph 377 6484

The most annoying man in the NRL

EVEN IF Michael Ennis’

NRL career ends without a

2016 premiership ring, North

Queensland’s Jason Taumalolo

reckons the Cronulla rake is

already guaranteed one title – the

league’s most irritating player.

But Taumalolo did not warm to

the prospect of finally silencing

Ennis by bringing an abrupt halt

to his playing days this week.

Retiring Sharks No 9 Ennis

is expected to be at his niggling

best in Friday night’s preliminary

final against North Queensland

at Allianz Stadium.

Few would argue after Ennis

copped plenty of criticism for

taunting Raiders fans with his

own “Viking clap” following the

Sharks’ opening finals win in

Canberra.

For the record, Taumalolo

reckoned he could see the funny

side of Ennis’ dig at Canberra

fans.

“It was pretty funny seeing him

after the Raiders game, I couldn’t

stop laughing at that moment,”

he said.

“But that is him to a tee.

“He will be just as much of a

pest on Friday night – it should

be quite the battle in the middle.”

But Taumalolo could not argue

when asked if Ennis was on the

“all time” most annoying players

list.

“I think he would be up there,

but I don’t think you have to ask

me about that,” he smiled. “I

speak for most of the NRL that

Mick is definitely up there as one

of the most annoying players in

the comp.”

Taumalolo now has the chance

to have the final say against Ennis.

Taumalolo’s extraordinary

263m effort inspired North

Queensland’s extra-time semifinal

win over Brisbane last week.

It also helped end Broncos captain

Corey Parker’s NRL career.

One week later he can do the

same for Ennis – not that he

looked forward to it. “He is one of

the best players in that position in

the modern day era,” Taumalolo

said of Ennis. “If he retires on

Friday night it would be a pretty

tragic way to end a career.

“He handles himself well for a

small body, he definitely puts his

body on the line (in defence).”

New era for city’s

home of tennis

• By Gordon Findlater

AFTER MORE than five years

in the doldrums, Wilding Park’s

centre court is set to begin a new

era in just over a month.

The tennis centre has been

without a showpiece court since

the February 2011 earthquake.

The new centre court will

feature the existing concrete

grandstand on the tennis centre

side of the court. The old historic

stand that surrounded the

other side of the court has been

demolished due to earthquake

damage and will be replaced with

a grass embankment.

The previous court became

an iconic venue in New Zealand

tennis history. It was known as

the country’s home of the Davis

Cup for three decades.

Christchurch has recently

hosted three Davis Cup ties in as

many years, utilising the indoor

centre at Wilding Park. New

Zealand Tennis had previously

stated that Christchurch would

act as home for winter ties and

Auckland for summer ties.

However, Canterbury Tennis

general manager Hamish Cain

NEW SHOWPIECE: Canterbury Tennis general manager

Hamish Cain believes Wilding Park will host more high profile

events with a new centre court. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

believes that will change with a

new outdoor centre court.

“We are really focused on

making this the venue for Davis

Cup regardless of summer or

winter,” said Cain.

The new centre court

redevelopment is part of a six

court rebuild. This will take the

number of courts to 18 outdoor

and six indoor.

“Once we have the new courts

finished and some development

work at the front of the building,

we will be back to our former

glory and again be viewed as the

premier regional facility in New

Zealand,” said Cain.

Canterbury Tennis also plans

to be part of the Nga Puna Wai

sports hub, with its 12 tennis

courts expected to be built by

September 2018.

Meanwhile, Wilding Park’s new

centre is on track to be officially

opened in early November.

The first major tournament

on the new courts will be the

Canterbury Open.

A number of New Zealand

Davis Cup players are expected

to play.

Brydon named MVP

• By Gordon Findlater

DAVID BRYDON was

recognised as the standout

player in this year’s National

Hockey League, receiving the

MVP award.

The award was bittersweet

for Brydon after his Canterbury

Cavaliers were defeated

1-3 by Midlands in the grandfinal

on Saturday.

The one we wanted was the

national title, but it’s a pretty

cool accolade to have and was

unexpected,” said Brydon.

The 20-year-old was instrumental

in Canterbury’s run

to the final. In just his second

season with the Cavaliers,

Brydon was promoted to

centre-midfield after playing at

left back last year.

Coach Andrew Hastie was

more than happy with Brydon’s

display.

“He’s got a super future

ahead of him. He was the

engine room of the team, with

his tireless running. He’s also a

great distributor and provided

plenty of go forward for us,”

said Hastie.

Brydon will now turn his attention

to international duties.

He is all but assured of being

named in the New Zealand

under-21 team to play at the

Junior World Cup in India this

FUTURE STAR: David

Brydon, 20, was named

MVP of this year’s National

Hockey League. ​

December.

There is also a strong chance

he could find himself in the national

Black Sticks team sooner

rather than later. The squad to

take on Australia in a trans-

Tasman series this November

will be named in the coming

weeks.

It was a successful campaign

for Canterbury at the tournament

in Whangarei. The

Canterbury Cats women’s side

defeated North Harbour 3-2 to

bring home the K Cup.

Canterbury also took home

the Ramesh Patel Shield,

awarded to the best overall

performing province.

TM

• By Ross Kiddie

QUITE OFTEN a total

stranger will comment on a

new car I’m driving.

However, I wasn’t

prepared for the lengthy

conversation I had when

I stopped outside my

local pharmacy to have a

prescription filled.

I was driving Honda’s

brand new Civic, and a

man who had sighted the

car from the other side of

the street rushed over to

talk about the vehicle.

He was a Civic owner

and was very enthusiastic

about the newcomer. He

knew all about its technology

and design, and was

delighted with its looks and

appeal.

It’s fair to say he was

probably a buyer at some

point, and he wanted me

to tell him all about the

car. At the time we met,

the car had not long been

in my care so I could only

tell him the basics, but one

thing we both did agree

on was that the 10th-generation

Civic is something

rather special, especially

in its design, its sleek and

dramatic styling is quite

simply stunning.

Bear in mind that at

this stage the Civic is only

available as a sedan, the

hatchback version will land

next year. In the interim,

the sedan is sensational in

terms of visual appeal, even

the basic-spec S version

looks great, the RS with its

sporty, add on elements

really do give the car some

stature.

On the inside, the newcomer

isn’t quite so dramatic,

it is more conservative

and typically Honda

– functional and practical.

I’m not saying it is plain,

its design is meant for a

user-friendly approach to

use, and that it does well.

The dash panel and display

graphics do suggest that

Honda, as a design company,

is branching out a

little, the digital elements

are deep and vivid.

In RS form, the Civic

comes with a high amount

of spec, major features

include full leather trim,

heated front seats (also electrically

adjustable on driver’s

side), cruise control (active

on range-topper), dual-zone

climate control, electric

sunroof and comprehensive

multimedia infotainment

system, the latter projected

through a mid-dash 7in

touch screen. It also links to

Apple CarPlay.

HONDA CIVIC: Sporty styling for RS sedan.

The items for comfort

and convenience go a long

way towards an inviting

in-cabin environment.

However, there is also a

wealth of unseen items

which are there for safety.

Honda has an extensive

advanced active safety

suite, some features are

available on the top-of-therange

NT only, but on the

RS I particularly like the

lane watch camera which

provides the driver with an

on-screen view of what is

rearwards of the car when

the left-side indicator is

activated.

• Price – Honda Civic

RS, $39,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4644mm; width,

1799mm; height,

1416mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1496cc, 127kW,

220Nm, seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.2sec

• Fuel usage –

6l/100km

That’s a healthy list for

a car which comes in at

$39,900. Take into account,

too, that the range starts at

$29,900 for the base model

and ends at $42,900 for the

all bells and whistles NT.

And the excitement

doesn’t finish there. Under

the bonnet sits a. 1.5-litre

turbocharged engine, there

is a more traditional naturally-aspirated

1.8-litre unit

as a lower grade option, but

the turbo engine would be

the one for me.

It is rated with a healthy

127kW of power with

220Nm of torque listing all

of the way from 1750rpm

to 5500rpm. If you take

into account that the area

of peak power sits at just

5500rpm, there is little

fluctuation of power anywhere

in the rev band. That

is helped by a seamless

flow of gearing through the

inclusion of a continuously

www.blackwells.co.nz

variable automatic transmission,

the turbo Civic

has dynamism not often

associated with mainstream

vehicles.

While an 8.2sec to

100kmh from a standstill

isn’t overly exciting it’s still

no slouch, and the mere

fact that the flow of power

is so cohesive means there

is always a feeling there is

more on offer than the figures

suggest.

Turbocharging is the

modern way of boosting

power outputs from small

displacement engines,

along with providing

respectable fuel usage

figures. Honda claims

a six-litre per 100km

(47mpg) combined cycle,

which I suspect would be

quite realistic given the

6.8l/100km (41mpg) figure

showing on the fuel usage

readout during evaluation

time. At 100km/h the

engine is working over

quite relaxed at just rpm,

providing a 5l/100km

(56mpg) figure.

I took the test car inland

to State Highway 72 and

enjoyed its quiet motion

and smooth ride. I like

fully independent suspension

systems, and the

front-strut/rear multiple

link system in the Civic

has spring and damper

rates biased towards ride

comfort, yet they are set

just firm enough to control

body movement when a

fast corner is presented.

In RS form the Civic gets

sticky Bridgestone rubber

(215/50 x 17in) and they

contribute to a dynamic

handling experience.

The Civic in its latest

iteration is a class act; it

had to be, Civic has a huge

reputation worldwide for

quality and practicality.

Undoubtedly, Honda

will continue to add to the

series in body shape and

specification upgrades. I

simply can’t wait to find

myself behind the wheel

of another as it progresses

through its lifecycle.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?

Check out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
