claim

Walkies on wheels


By Bridget Rutherford

IF YOU see a friendly dog on

the beach which looks like he is

towing a sulky – he’s not training

for the upcoming Cup and Show

Week.

Cooper the labrador-mastiff

cross uses his wheels for a different

purpose – to do the things he

loves.

At 11-months-old, he was

diagnosed with hip displasia,

a condition where the ball and

socket joints in his back hips are

malformed.

It makes it difficult for Cooper

to walk long distances, and he

struggled to go to one of his

favourite places – the beach.

So his owner, Frances Ryan,

and her semi-retired friend

decided to build 16-month-old

Cooper his own “wheels” to support

his back legs.

They bought a harness from

the United States, and used stainless

steel and golf cart wheels

to build the contraption, which

took about 48 hours.

“All for the price of a couple of

boxes of beer,” Ms Ryan said.

Cooper only wears the harness

for about an hour a day.

“After he was diagnosed and

we were building his wheels, it

was about six weeks before he

was back at the beach. We got in

the sand and he was like that’s

right – I knew something was

missing in my life.”

Ms Ryan adopted Cooper from

the SPCA just over a year ago,

before he was diagnosed. His vet

expects him to live until he is

about seven.

“By 11 months we were already

in love with him,” she said.

Cooper is the second dog Ms

Ryan has adopted.

“For a dog with a nice temperament,

there’s no reason why

he can’t come to a nice home like

this.”

POOR structural engineering

work meant to ensure a multistory

central city office building

performs well in an earthquake

is the latest allegation that will be

investigated by the city council.

Last week, The Star revealed

allegations relating to five buildings

that were made in a sworn

affidavit from a man who said he

had been placed into roles he was

unqualified for by the structural

engineering company who employed

him.

Now the former employee has

said that he completed unsupervised

welding work on base

isolation plates on one of the

buildings – a multi-storey office

block in the central city.

He gave details of this work

at a meeting yesterday with city

council staff including commercial

consents manager Shane

Bruyns.

Base isolation systems help reduce

the impact of earthquakes

on buildings.

An engineering expert, who

declined to be named, said

starnews.co.nz

buildings had multiple isolation

plates which were usually

“overdesigned” to perform better

than necessary in an earthquake.

If only one or two plates failed it

was unlikely to be an issue.

However, if the same flaws

were repeated on most of the

plates so that a high number

failed, it could compromise the

performance of the building in

an earthquake.

City council general manager

consenting and compliance Leonie

Rae told The Star yesterday

until a thorough investigation

had been completed, it would be

inappropriate to comment on

matters discussed at the meeting

with the former employee.

The former employee has said

he was directed, by his manager,

to take short cuts which deviated

from the building specifications

and would compromise the

engineering.

In his affidavit, he said he

was concerned that there was a

genuine possibility that the substandard

work which he knew

about could cause a CTV-type

disaster.

MORE worrying revelations

today (page 1) over the

developing dangerous

building work claims saga in

Christchurch.

Last week The Star revealed a

former employee of a structural

engineering company had

sworn in an affidavit that he

been placed into roles he was

unqualified for, and he said the

work was unsafe.

He was involved in welding,

and also claimed in the affidavit

that other welders hired by the

company were also unqualified.

They worked on a multi-level

residential building, three

commercial premises and a

school.

Yesterday, that former

employee was questioned by city

council engineers and building

chiefs over his claims in the

affidavit; the first step in what is

potentially going to be a lengthy

inquiry as to whether the claims

have any validity.

And if they do, it could open

a big can of worms over the

rebuild and how work is signed

off.

At a Glance

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw a fire (New Zealand’s most extensive

to that date) destroying the centre of Lyttelton. It happened

on October 24, 1870. On October 26, 1980, the city council

gave land at Cuthberts Green to the trustees of new Ngā

Hau E Whā National Marae. On October 27, 1983, a new

office building on the corner of Manchester and Kilmore Sts

incorporated New Zealand’s first exterior lift. On October 28,

1978, the Pioneer Sports Stadium opened. On October 29,

1830, Te Rauparaha chartered the Elizabeth (under Captain

Stewart) and sailed for Akaroa. On October 30, 1985, writerin-residence

at Canterbury University, Keri Hulme (left) won

the prestigious Booker McConnell prize for her novel The

Bone People.

AUTOMATIC WAY TO GET NOTORIETY

A Canterbury University associate professor who

jokingly wrote a research paper by using Apple’s

iOS autocomplete has been accepted to present

his findings at a nuclear physics conference.

Christopher Bartneck was stunned to discover

he secured a place at the conference, which takes

place in the United States next month. He started

a sentence with ‘Atomic’ or ‘Nuclear’ and then

randomly hit the autocomplete suggestions to

write the entire paper. Mr Bartneck said the

paper made no sense at all, and joked that he

resorted to iOS autocomplete because he had no

knowledge of nuclear physics.

Health board’s August budget blowout

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE CANTERBURY District

Health Board’s already stretched

finances are looking worse after

it blew its budget in August.

The CDHB is facing a forecast

budget shortfall of more than

$35 million this year, which has

left it in a financial limbo until

Long jail term

for rapist

THE VICTIM of a violent sex

predator, who for 20 years had

got away with her brutal rape,

yesterday branded him “smug”

and a “nasty and evil man”

as he was jailed for almost 13

years with a minimum term of

imprisonment of eight years.

Former national wrestler

Devon Charles Bond, 49, had

been released from jail in 1998

after kidnapping a North Canterbury

woman with the intention

of raping her in 1995.

But only Bond knew at the time

that he had already raped, and

not been caught, when he broke

into a Burwood woman’s home

on May 9, 1994, and raped her at

knifepoint.

For two decades, Bond lived his

secret until he got into a drunken

fight with police after a boozy

work night out in December

2014.

During his arrest, officers took

a DNA sample which matched

samples taken in 1994, and he

was arrested for the cold case.

He pleaded guilty at the High

Court in Christchurch in May to

six charges, including two charges

of sexual violation and rape,

abduction, aggravated burglary

and assault with a weapon.

Yesterday, during his sentencing,

the court heard a harrowing

victim impact statement, where

the victim explained the longstanding

toll his vicious assault

has had on her.

“You must have thought you

must have got away with it,” said

the victim, who has permanent

name suppression.

its books have been approved by

the Ministry of Health.

It expected the budget

for August to fall $4.8 million

short, but the reality was a $5.1

million shortfall – $320,000

over budget. That included a

$569,000 budget blowout for

in-house services and $112,000

for the Brackenridge disability

• By Annabelle Dick and Isaac

Davison

FORMER LABOUR MP Sir

Kerry Burke and his ex-wife

Faimeh spent nearly $25,000 on

taxpayer-funded travel in the

past financial year.

The Parliamentary Service

annual report for the 2015/16 financial

year showed that former

MPs and their spouses racked

up $703,000 on

international

and domestic

travel.

Christchurch-based

Sir Kerry (left)

was the biggest

spender, claiming

$16,147 in travel while Mrs

Burke claimed $8265.

Mrs Burke unsuccessfully

stood for the city council in the

recent local body elections.

The spouses of former MPs

spent $349,600 – nearly as much

as the politicians themselves,

who spent $353,257.

Mrs Burke told The Star

yesterday she visited Canada

and several countries in Europe

on holiday. She travelled in both

economy and business class.

“I have children in Europe.

One in Germany and one in

service.

It was balanced slightly by

savings in its funding budget

and linen services.

CDHB chief executive David

Meates said the health board

was under huge pressure.

The system is at capacity, so

we have to be exemplary every

day,” he said.

Austria, so it

made sense I saw

them,” she said.

However, Mrs

Burke said she

was surprised at

the interest in

her travel.

“It’s nobody’s

business as

to what I do

and what

holiday I go

on. Using

this entitlement

is like

people using

their salary and

we don’t go to

them and say

what did you

use your salary for?”

In all, 157 people

claimed money back

through a perk which

provides travel subsidies

and is available only to MPs

elected before 1999 and their

spouses.

The travel perk dates

back to 1972 and has

been defended by

former MPs who say it

is part of their overall salary

package and makes up for them

taking lower pay increases while

they were MPs.

Finance and corporate services

general manager Justine

White said the budget for September

was looking better and

was favourable.

She said the 48-hour junior

doctors strike had added to

staffing costs, and extra demand

on the intensive care unit had

also added pressure.

Globetrotting

Burkes

Former MPs

who served for

three terms get

a 60 per cent

rebate, and

for four terms

it is 75 per

cent, and five

or more terms

qualifies them

for a 90 per

cent rebate.

Sir Kerry

and Mrs

Burke get a

90 per cent rebate.

Mrs Burke has

defended the travel

perk and believes

former MPs have a

right to the entitlement.

“This was of an entitlement

of the MPs at that

time like a salary. It

was the case they didn’t

get a salary increase,

instead they got given

this travel entitlement. It’s

neither secret or anything

strange,” she said.

Since separating with

Sir Kerry, Mrs Burke is no

longer entitled to the travel

rebate.

Sir Kerry is overseas and

could not be reached for comment.

In Brief

SCHOOL DECISION

Redcliffs School will find out

whether it will move back to its

Main Rd site, or to a new one on

Tuesday. The Board of Trustees

will meet with Education

Minister Hekia Parata in

Wellington to hear the decision.

Ms Parata announced in July the

school would not close. She said

the ministry wanted to look into

the impacts of it moving back

to its Main Rd site, and whether

moving the school to another

nearby site would be realistic.

These investigations had now

been completed.

MAN KILLED IN NSW

Former Christchurch resident

Hayden John Simpson, 28, was

killed in a car crash in New South

Wales on Saturday. The truck

driver was heading south on

Tomingley Rd from Narromine

in a Holden Cruze, when he hit

surface water. The car left the

road and flipped end over end a

number of times before landing

on its roof. Police do not believe

alcohol was involved.

ACCOMMODATION AWARDS

The Establishment has been

named the best hotel in

Christchurch in the trivago

awards. The Clyde Rd

accommodation was followed

closely by St James B&B in

Harewood, and Lincoln Motel.

Those three were also all among

the top 10 rating hotels for the

Canterbury region. The awards

are calculated through 175

million user ratings from more

than 250 booking sites.

FLOOD RISK REDUCTION

Work is under way to reduce the

flood risk in Heathcote Valley

downstream of Bridle Path Rd.

The work, which is being done

in three stages, will reduce the

flooding risk for properties

around Flavell and Marsden

Sts, and other areas that flooded

in 2014. The first stage will see

the construction of a pipeline to

divert stormwater from Heathcote

Valley Drain to the lower Matuku

Waterway. The three stages are

due to be completed late next year.

More than

14,000 votes

didn’t count

• By Bridget Rutherford

FIFTEEN PER CENT of votes in

the city council elections could not

be counted because the papers were

not filled out properly.

Of the 92,488 people who returned

their voting papers, 13,711

papers were left blank, while 405

had informal votes, meaning the

voter’s intention were not clear.

This year saw a voting turn out of

38 per cent, down from 43 per cent

in the 2013 election and 52 per cent

in 2010. Votes were still counted

if the voter’s intentions were clear,

regardless of whether the forms

were filled out properly.

Voting for the mayor seemed to

provide the most confusion – with

more than 2700 people leaving

their voting papers blank.

When it came to voting for community

board candidates in the

Heathcote Ward, 782 voting papers

were left blank – the most in the

city. The Fendalton Ward of the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board had 743 blank

voting papers, while the Waimairi

Ward candidates for the same

board had 655 blank papers.

The Canterbury District Health

Board results saw about 113,000

votes in total. Of those, 5792 were

invalid and 15,125 were blank.

From grocer to deputy mayor

Andrew Turner will

be deputy mayor for

the next three years.

Bridget Rutherford

finds out who he is

IN 2009, a group of Lyttelton

business owners were fighting

against a plan to upgrade the

main street during summer –

their biggest trading period.

Back then, the cruise ships

were still visiting Lyttelton and

business owners wanted the

work on London St to be done

in the winter so it would not

disrupt their trading.

They won the battle. Fastforward

six years and Andrew

Turner (right) is facing a bigger

challenge – the role of deputy

mayor.

“I guess if there was one thing

I would say marked my foray

into local politics, it probably was

that,” he said.

Mr Turner said there had been

“conversations” since the election

that led to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

announcing him as her deputy at

last week’s inaugural meeting.

“I’m very pleased to have the

role. There’s a compliment there

that Lianne has asked me to

perform this role.”

NEW LOCATION

13b Parkhouse Rd, CHRISTCHURCH

Originally from Yorkshire,

United Kingdom, Mr Turner’s

background has always been in

business development.

He moved to Lyttelton in 2003,

and he and his partner bought

the Empire Hotel and “brought it

back to life.”

Although they sold it in 2009,

Mr Turner said he was sad to see

it come down after the February

2011 earthquake.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Following that, he was coowner

of London St Dairy and

Harris and Turner Fresh Foods.

That led him to become chairman

of Lyttelton Harbour Business

Association – a role he held

for four years.

Mr Turner was elected as

councillor for Banks Peninsula

in 2013, winning by five votes

over now National MP Nuk

Korako.

Previously he served on the

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board for a term and was

involved in the Lyttelton Master

Plan process and earthquake

recovery. He said the past three

years had been full of challenges

and was “foundation-laying.”

“Last term was really getting to

grips with what we’d inherited. It

was dealing with those big issues

of finance, insurance, infrastructure,

housing, earthquake settlements

and so on.”

But this term posed a different

type of challenge – finishing off

the work the last council started.

He wanted to see community

boards get more power and the

completion of city council

projects such as the town hall,

Central Library and cycleways.

Mr Turner said, as part of his

supporting role to Ms Dalziel, he

would need to be more open to

talking to the media.

“I’m going to need to be approachable

and I’m going to need

to be responding quickly to those

kind of queries.”

So is he keen for the top job in

three years?

“Three years is a long time and

a lot can happen. I think that’s a

conversation we’d be wanting to

have closer to the time.”

Rebuild still attracting migrants

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE Christchurch rebuild

may be slowing but that

has not deterred the

stream of migrants, with

about 5500 moving to the

city in the last year.

Christchurch

Multicultural

Council

president

Surinder

Tandon (left)

said a lot of

people were

attracted to the city for

rebuild work, but many

just wanted to be part of a

growing city.

“Christchurch is seen

as a budding new city due

to the reconstruction and

infrastructure. People

are quite excited to settle

here,” he said.

The new Statistics New

Zealand figures show there

were about 375,000 people

living in Christchurch as

of June this year, an extra

7300 when compared with

the same time last year.

Of those, 5500 were

new immigrants and 1800

was a natural population

change as people were

born or died.

The biggest increase was

in the 15-39 age range, but

the number of people aged

65 and over also rose.

Mr Tandon said

many new migrants

had previously studied

in Christchurch, while

others planned to move

temporarily to join the

rebuild, then decided to

move long-term.

They find it’s the ideal

place for bringing their

families up, for education

and employment and for

the lifestyle,” he said.

The fact housing was

significantly cheaper than

in Auckland also made

Christchurch attractive to

migrants, he said.

Growing numbers

of migrants could put

support services under

pressure, but he said the

services in Christchurch

were well-resourced and

there was plenty of advice

or support available for

migrants.

Plan needed to

fix suicide rate

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE HEALTH board is looking

at how it can improve its mental

health services after Canterbury

saw the most suicides ever

recorded in New Zealand.

Seventy-eight Cantabrians

committed suicide in the last

year, according to provisional

statistics released by the chief

coroner last year.

Health board member Andrew

Dickerson said the high suicide

rate was something the CDHB

had predicted after the earthquakes,

yet the funding per person

for mental health services in

Canterbury had remained lower

than the national average.

“While many of us have been

able to move forward, there are

some who have been left behind.

They are becoming a smaller

minority and their despair is

increasing,” he said.

He wanted to see a report on

the issue prepared, so the health

board could look at what it might

be able to do.

Speaking to a parliamentary

committee in February, CDHB

chief executive David Meates

warned the mental health system

was at risk of disaster.

He said there had been high

numbers of middle-aged women

struggling with anxiety or depression.

The coroner’s statistics reported

a significant increase in the number

of women who committed

suicide.

Canterbury chief medical

officer Sue Nightingale told the

health board at its meeting last

week that the coroner’s figures

were only provisional, as the

cause of death in some cases had

not been decided.

She said that meant the suicide

rate could improve, but it could

potentially get worse.

AT THE MOVIES: This is what the central city’s new HOTYS EntX multiplex cinema

will look like when it is completed in 2018. The complex will be built on the corner of

Colombo, Lichfield and Tuam Sts. The three-level complex will include a dining precinct

on the ground level with 16 food outlets. It will have seven movie theatres, including

two HOYTS Xtremescreen auditoriums and two HOYTS LUX auditoriums, and will

also feature state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos sound and powered recliners. The former

central city HOYTS, on Moorhouse Ave, was demolished following the February 2011

earthquake.

Deputy mayor appointment far

Shelley Robinson takes a look behind closed

doors at the posturing over Andrew Turner’s

announcement as deputy mayor

AT FIRST glance, the

appointment of Andrew Turner

as deputy mayor appears

innocuous.

He is a thoroughly likeable

bloke – he is the fella around the

barbecue everyone gets on with.

But make no mistake, the

appointment of Cr Turner, who

is The People’s Choice caucus

leader comes with political

moves, counter moves and forward

thinking.

Sources at the city council said

while many outside and inside

city hall would have preferred

Raf Manji as deputy mayor, The

People’s Choice would not have

supported it – suffice to say they

don’t get along.

So opposed to it, there was

speculation that they could at

the first meeting, dependent on

support of other left-leaning city

councillors, put in an notice of

motion to get him, or any other

independent, removed from the

role.

It would not have been a good

way to start the new city council.

So then, it became highly likely

that the deputy mayor was going

to come from The People’s

Choice camp of councillors Yani

Johanson, Glenn Livingstone,

Jimmy Chen, Anne Galloway,

Pauline Cotter, Phil Clearwater

and Cr Turner.

While they are a minority,

with seven members out of a

possible 17 elected members,

they are a powerful group.

But it appears that not all in

the caucus were happy with Cr

Turner being the only option for

deputy mayor.

Sources say there was lobbying

before last Tuesday’s caucus

meeting.

While former deputy mayor

Vicki Buck had made it clear she

wanted out of the role, at least

two of The People’s Choice city

councillors were lobbying others

around the table for her to continue

instead of Cr Turner.

But it appears that the caucus

resolved to be unanimous, and

the outcome of the meeting was

the tick for Cr Turner.

He in turn informed Mayor Lianne

Dalziel he had the support

POLITICAL MOVE: Lianne Dalziel’s announcement that Andrew Turner would be her deputy

for the next three years, comes in an political environment where The People’s Choice are

becoming a strong united voice around the table.

of his caucus should she offer

him the role. It was no surprise

to Ms Dalziel as he had been

lobbying for the role for a few

months. Last Thursday, it was

officially announced to all city

councillors before the swearingin

ceremony.

Former city councillor Paul

Lonsdale, who lost his seat, said

the lobbying could indicate that

individual The People’s Choice

members were already jostling

for position for the mayoralty

next term.

There are people who do fancy

themselves as mayor and with

Andrew being deputy mayor it

puts him right in line next time,”

he said.

But analysing the political climate

within council chambers it

was inevitable Ms Dalziel would

choose a deputy mayor from

The People’s Choice. They had

become a quite a force and could

divide the table.

from a foregone conclusion

It is no secret around the city

council table that The People’s

Choice had put the independents,

including Ms Dalziel, offside

with their “block voting” on

issues such as asset sales, creating

a tense divide at times.

While the previous term’s city

councillors were at pains to spare

the community a repeat of the

outward bickering from the Sir

Bob Parker table – including the

infamous A and B teams, in reality

there was division but more

subtle.

The A team this time were the

The People’s Choice city councillors

against the B team independents,

with former deputy mayor

Cr Buck and Ms Dalziel the

swing votes off to the side.

Cr Gough said it “did in their

heads”.

“We (the independents) ended

up having to meet and caucus.

They just became a well-oiled

political machine. They act in

opposition. Local government

politics is too small for a miniparliament,”

he said.

City councillors spoken to

by The Star said it was possible

without The People’s Choice

deputy mayor at the helm, the

two sides could keep veering

apart, in spite of solid leadership

by Ms Dalziel.

When asked by The Star if Cr

Turner could unite the council

bringing together the differing

groups Ms Dalziel said: “I hope

so”.

“I think what Andrew has got

is he has built a very strong position

of trust,” she said.

Mr Turner said it was “his

hope” he could unite the city

council.

The citizens of Christchurch

don’t want to see a council

squabbling . . . that’s not to say

there won’t be viewpoints expressed,

there should be, but it is

how we work those differences to

get the result that is important,”

he said.

Canterbury University political

science senior lecturer Dr Bronwyn

Hayward said Ms Dalziel

needed a strongly united council

to contend with the Government.

“Central government is very

difficult unless you can show

you have legitimacy of strong

public opinion of the community

behind you and a strongly united

council . . .

Dr Hayward said no-one but

a The People’s Choice candidate

would have had a realistic shot at

the deputy mayor role – including

Cr Manji due to the political

make-up of the council.

Cr Turner’s appointment was

“political pragmatism and building

an inclusive council”, she

said.

“Realistically any of the other

candidates like Raf (Manji) are

unlikely to unite the council so

Andrew Turner is likely an effective

political choice because he

will be able to unite a wide range

of groups, including The People’s

Choice.

“You have to work with the

team you’ve got and his (Cr

Manji’s) leadership wouldn’t be

as effective in the setting at this

time,” she said.

She said the biggest challenge

FRUSTRATION:

It was no secret

that last term

Choice and Cr

Raf Manji (right)

butted heads,

while Jamie

Gough said

had to caucus in

response to The

People’s Choice.

SLOAN

for Cr Turner would be making

the transition to working for

the wider team and not just his

caucus but he had a very “inclusive

style” which would bridge

the gap.

Those that may struggle with

that the most, would be his The

People’s Choice colleagues.

They as a team will have to

show humility and ability . . .

the public will not be tolerating

groups splitting off – especially

post-quake there is a strong resistance

to factionalism,’ she said.

If last term is anything to go

by, Ms Dalziel will deal with

factionalism very efficiently.

During the last few months

of that term, The Star was aware

of disquiet among some city

councillors. Some vented frustration

that they were not allowed

to comment to media on issues

to do with the relationship with

Government, especially with

regards to what the city council

was doing to exert influence to

move the anchor projects ahead.

There were concerns Ms

Dalziel was clamping down too

hard.

Ms Dalziel said she never

gagged city councillors from

talking, but encouraged them

to be cautious and informed if

commenting in the public realm.

“I have no control over what

they say. All I say is let the communications

team know so we

can get factual information,” she

said.

But Cr Turner said city councillors

should not be commenting

on the relationship with the

Government.

“It is obviously a two-sided relationship

and the council is only

one part of that. Councillors are

not at liberty to talk about the relationship

we are only one party

to. Obviously, some of the details

of the anchor projects have commercial

sensitivities and certainly

it is not our role to be talking

Publisher receives honour


STAR MEDIA chairman Nick

Smith was “humbled” to receive

his Queen’s Birthday Honour

from Governor-General Dame

Patsy Reddy at Government

House last week.

Mr Smith was named an

Officer of the New Zealand

Order of Merit in the Queen’s

Birthday Honours for his services

to media and to sport.

Star Media is the publisher of

The Star, Kiwi Gardener, Rugby

News, Style, Bay Harbour News,

Pegasus Post, Nor’West News,

Southern View, Western News,

Selwyn Times, a number of other

niche print titles, broadcasts

CTV, and has Facebook page

Rise Up Christchurch.

Mr Smith is a past president

of the Otago Chamber of Commerce,

The Dunedin Club and

the Otago Cricket Association,

an Honorary Captain of the

Royal New Zealand Navy, and a

director of several South Island

media companies.

While grateful for the recognition,

he couldn’t help but think of

others who had done good work

in the community without being

recognised.

“It’s good that people do get acknowledgement

from their peers

or the Government or other

persons but there are a lot out

there who should be recognised

and aren’t,” he said.

There are a lot of other people

in the community that probably

have had a greater bearing on

their city and life than some of

the people like myself who have

these awards.”

However, he did appreciate the

honour and said keeping CTV

operating after the February 2011

earthquake was one of the things

he was proud of.

The CTV building collapsed

in the earthquake, with 16 staff

members among the 115 dead,

and almost all of the company’s

equipment was lost.

“To get it up and running, to

give some hope to those families

who were still employed by CTV,

that took a lot of effort and it

was a very sad time,” Mr Smith

said.

“I think perhaps more pragmatic

people than me would have

perhaps taken the money and

run. That might have been a sensible

thing to do but then again

you can’t put a figure on the

human misery that occurred in

that earthquake and the ongoing

misery if you didn’t do it.”

Another source of satisfaction

was having sponsored the 2003

New Zealand Golf Open winner

Mahal Pearce.

“I was probably the catalyst

for that guy to become the New

Zealand champion and all the

accolades that come with it,

[having] financially backed him

as a young person showing great

talent.”

Dragon set to rock at Lincoln concert

With a catalogue of hits including Kiwi anthems

April Sun in Cuba, Rain and Are You Old Enough?

Dragon have well and truly earned their place as

New Zealand rock royalty. Tom Doudney caught up

with lead singer Mark Williams in the lead up to their

appearance at the Live in Lincoln Selwyn Sounds

concert in March

FLYING IN and out of

Christchurch over the years,

Mark Williams has often

wondered about the land between

the city and Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere as he gazed down from

his seat in the aircraft.

But the Dragon singer admitted

he had to Google Lincoln

when the band were asked to

co-headline the Selwyn Sounds

concert with Mi-Sex and a host

of other well-known New Zealand

artists in March.

Now he knew where it was,

Williams, who joined the reformed

band in 2005, said he was

looking forward to exploring the

area – and to playing with the

rest of the show’s line up, most of

whom were friends or artists he

had performed with before.

That line-up includes Sharon

O’Neill, Annie Crummer, Margaret

Urlich, Debbie Harwood,

the Jordan Luck Band and former

Opshop frontman Jason Kerrison,

as well as other local bands.

“I think there is a hell of a lot

of nostalgia going to be going on

here and I’m always up for that,”

Williams said.

Although the band has been

releasing new material over the

last 11 years, he indicated people

could expect plenty of old favourites

when they hit the stage.

“We don’t tend to add too

much new stuff because we know

that given the longevity of the

band people do want to hear

the songs that were part of their

growing up period,” he said.

He said hits like April Sun in

Cuba and Rain remained popular

because they were songs that

every generation could relate to.

“I think it’s the same thing that

caught everyone’s attention at the

time they came out – they are evergreens,

they are kind of standard

and an integral part of Australian

and New Zealand culture.”

In spite of having played the

songs hundreds of times over the

years, Williams said he never felt

like he was going through the

motions when performing them

READY TO ROCK: Singer Mark Williams, bottom, and his band

Dragon are among a stellar line-up of New Zealand acts set to

play Lincoln in March.

and the crowd’s positive reaction

was a big part of that.

“It’s all about the music, really,

and that mass communication

and that’s the thing that has been

driving me since I was five-yearsold,”

he said.

“If we’re working hard I kind

of expect [the crowd] to work

hard as well back at me.”

Williams said that the band

was likely to turn its attention

to working on some new music

soon after Selwyn Sounds.

With the band members,

which also include Todd Hunter,

Bruce Reid and Pete Drummond,

scattered around New South

Wales, Australia, and with several

hours driving time between

them, they made full use of

modern technology when writing

new music – often emailing

audio recordings back and forth

for each to add their own touch.

“We are way overdue for the

next lot of songs and I think this

one is going to be an album,”

Williams said.

Williams had a successful solo

career before Dragon, with hits

including Yesterday Was Just The

Beginning of My Life and Show

No Mercy, and he didn’t rule out

performing a song or two from

those years at Selwyn Sounds

either.

Asked whether there was a

chance he might pop down to

play at Lincoln’s Famous Grouse

Hotel after the gig he laughed

and said “you never know.”

“If there is something interesting

happening or someone from

the town that we are in says ‘go

down and check out this band’

or whatever you will often find

me and the drummer will be

there – not so much Todd or

Bruce,” he said.

“With a bit of cajoling, if somebody

asks us I am sure we would

more than oblige.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

a return bus ride

between pick-up points in

News

Finding a new family in the

During Labour Weekend, almost 50 Aussies visited Canterbury to

play airsoft – a combat sport which is banned in Australia. Reporter

Gabrielle Stuart donned camouflage and joined the tournament to find

out more about the sport

SUITED UP: Reporter Gabrielle Stuart spent three days with

Australian airsoft squads visiting Canterbury for a local military

adventure group event.

LYING WITH my face in the

dirt, a few branches my only

cover from the projectiles I could

hear whizzing overhead, I had

only one thought in my mind:

Why on earth did I sign up for

this?

Then my squad commander

signalled me forward, and I was

up and running – incomprehensibly,

toward the enemy guns,

not away from them.

At 11am it was already hot,

and dressed head to toe in full

combat gear, carrying weapons

and equipment as we sprinted,

my camo shirt was already sticking

to my back.

As we dropped into cover

and fired back at the enemy, my

heart was racing and adrenaline

pumping. It no longer felt like a

game.

This was my first introduction

to airsoft.

Two days earlier, I’d had only a

vague idea of what it was: Something

like paintball, but played

with BB guns in army costumes.

So when I was offered a

chance to take part in a threeday

airsoft event I happily put

my hand up, with no idea what I

was in for.

Parking my small Honda Jazz

at Magland on Friday morning,

where it was dwarfed in a row of

trucks and military vehicles, was

my first clue I might be out of my

depth.

Rows of military-style tents

were set up in the field there, and

people were wandering about

in full combat-style camouflage

gear, with very real-looking

weapons.

I resisted the urge to turn my

car around and flee.

I was quickly suited up

and bunked down with the

Australian contingent. There

were 48 Australians there,

some regular players who

travelled to New Zealand events

every year, and many completely

new to it.

My squadron leaders, Josh

McKenzie and Cal Chataway,

were the first two Australian

players to travel to Christchurch

to play in an airsoft tournament

four years ago.

They came because airsoft

guns are banned in Australia,

so the sport there is essentially

illegal, Josh told me.

He said the first experience

being hit wasn’t much fun: “I was

like, oh, alright, where’s the ‘soft’

part?”

But the experience had left him

hooked, he said.

“It’s the outdoors, the

teamwork, these guys are all

fantastic. Getting to have a go

with the guns. The fun of doing

something that’s illegal in your

country. The experience that I’ve

had here has always made me

want to come back,” he said.

But Josh and Cal returned the

next year and brought friends,

and since then their numbers

have grown every year.

Josh, who in Australia works

as a bartender and computer

technician, has been inspired by

his airsoft experience to study

to become a licensed armourer,

qualified to manage weapons or

special effects for film or television.

The other players came from

a huge variety of ages and

backgrounds. Some had army

or police training, and others

were gamers. There were some in

their teens, and some with white

beards, and all kinds of builds

and fitness levels.

While the Australians were

all blokes, several Kiwi girls

played, and were lethal with their

weapons.

midst of armed combat

The first day we ran through

training, going through safety

procedures, practicing with our

guns, and running through

group exercises. By the end of the

day my muscles were aching.

But nothing could prepare me

for the first battle.

Our goal was to take a village,

which was being defended by

Kiwi troops.

I was part of an air contingent,

which would arrive by helicopter

to attack from one side of the

field while ground troops came

in from the other.

My squad of five would be the

first to arrive.

As we circled overhead in the

chopper, we could see the size of

the enemy force. We were well

outnumbered, outgunned, and

would be stuck out in the open.

The sound of the chopper

blades was deafening as we

landed, and they pushed clouds

of dust into the air as we ran for

cover.

Our orders were to wait after

we landed until back-up arrived,

but as we landed we could see our

forces already attacking from the

other side of the village.

That meant there was no time

to wait or catch our breath – we

were off the chopper and running

straight at the enemy.

I don’t know how I didn’t get

shot in those first few minutes,

but somehow we made it to the

village, and started moving from

building to building, finally in

range and able to return enemy

fire.

And if ducking shots wasn’t

enough to keep us on edge,

explosions and clouds of smoke

rose from buildings we ran

through, as pyrotechnics planted

there were lit up.

At one point one exploded

inside a building I was pressed up

against for cover. The sound was

absolutely deafening.

RIVALRY: Australian and New Zealand teams faced off several

times during the weekend, and the rivalry was fierce.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

It couldn’t have been 15 minutes

before all the enemy troops

had either been hit or retreated,

and we had control of the village

– but I was absolutely exhausted.

And that was only the start.

We were loaded up into the

back of military trucks to head

to our next battle that afternoon,

and then out for a night mission

in the dark that evening.

The highlights included being

able to sit up front in a Land-

Rover and fire the fully automatic

gun mounted up on the passenger

side. As an easy target I

was shot and out of the match

within two minutes, but those

two minutes of spraying enemy

troops with pellets and watching

them scatter made it completely

worthwhile.

The biggest challenge was the

running. After several hours of

sprinting, then dropping to the

ground for cover, then sprinting

again, I was ready to give up. The

only thing keeping me going was

my commanders roaring behind

me: “Run, soldiers, or I’ll shoot

you myself!”

By the time we got back to

camp sometime after midnight,

falling into my lumpy stretcher

bed felt like a luxury, and I was

scenarios.

asleep too fast to be bothered by

the snoring of my squadron.

Over the weekend, I met some

of the local players, too.

Event organiser Noel Jane said

the Christchurch airsoft club was

one of the oldest in the country,

and had about 40 regular players.

He began playing about 10

years ago, and said it had attracted

him because it was tactical,

active and something a bit

different.

“Run, soldiers, or I’ll

shoot you myself!”

Although it was an adult-only

sport, it was something all kinds

of people could play, he said.

“It’s one of the few sports I’ve

seen where a father can go out

and play with his son and give

him a good kicking. It’s a social

sport, the airsoft community is

a great community, and it’s good

stress release and good for your

health, it gets you outside, motivated,”

he said.

Although I was exhausted,

somehow by the end of the weekend

I had become addicted, and I

didn’t want to stop.

They were right when they said

being hit with the biodegradable

pellets wouldn’t hurt much.Aside

from one hit I took on the knuckle,

I barely felt most of them.

It wasn’t until I got home I

realised I was covered in so many

small bruises I looked like a

dalmatian.

My only comfort was I had

left plenty of other players with

bruises, too.

The rivalry between the Australian

and New Zealand teams

was fierce, but my Aussie teammates

proved themselves bloody

good blokes.

After three days fighting together,

bunking down together,

sharing rations and swapping

war stories, we felt like family.

But in spite of my loyalty to my

squad, I have to admit feeling a

bit of pride in my Kiwi countrymen

on the occasions when they

outsmarted the Aussies.

The Australians were absolutely

fearless, their teamwork was

awesome, and some of them were

masters with their weapons.

But when it came to navigating

the bush, they were more likely to

take themselves out than anyone

else, and when on “silent” patrol

they sounded like a stampede.

There were plenty of complaints

about New Zealand’s

“predator” plants: gorse and

blackberries. The players who

got tangled or sat on them complained

they would prefer snakes.

Several Aussie squads got

completely lost. One commander

managed to lose all his troops

and wander into the crossfire in a

battle between two New Zealand

squads, where all he could do was

hide under a pile of branches and

cross his fingers until they moved

on.

So if there was one thing useful

thing I took from the weekend, it

was this:

They may have a much bigger

army, but if the Australians ever

do decide to invade New Zealand

we have nothing to worry about.

Even if they don’t get lost in the

bush, we’ll hear them coming

from miles away.

Our People

Willowbank zookeeper’s mission

From a lion in his ute cab to an otter in his

kitchen cupboard, animals have invaded

every part of Mike Willis’ life. The founder of

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve and the South

Island Wildlife Hospital, which is about to

celebrate it’s two-year anniversary, spoke to

Gabrielle Stuart

So take me right back to the

beginning. Where did your love

of animals start?

When I was very, very small,

I read a lot of books on animals

and spent a lot of time in the

high country and loved the wildlife,

so that goes way back. Right

back into my early childhood,

I always wanted to work with

animals.

What was your first pet?

It would have been a dog I

think. I’ve always had a dog. But

I kept a lot of birds, wild birds

and all sorts, possums too.

So you were determined to

work with animals – what did

you do?

There was no work with animals

in New Zealand then, so I

worked with animals overseas.

Most of my work was in Britain,

but I travelled and worked in

Europe and Africa. Some people

go from cathedral to cathedral,

I went from zoo to zoo. I came

back and bought the land for

Willowbank in 1968. I didn’t

have any money, so I went down

and was working with wildlife

in Te Anau. After a couple of

years, I came back and started

to develop the land as a wildlife

park, and a couple of years later,

got into a stage where it was only

just acceptable to open, but we

opened it in 1974.

How different were zoos back

then?

Very. In the old days if you

could shovel manure into a

wheelbarrow, you were employable

for this sort of work. Nowadays,

people are highly-skilled,

and the reasoning is different.

Back then you used to keep

animals as public entertainment,

now it has changed considerably.

Conservation and advocacy are

two strong rationales now for

this kind of work. When I first

started Willowbank, I wanted a

zoo like I had seen overseas, with

lions and tigers and elephants.

Having an elephant was the ultimate

to put on top of the cake,

so to speak. But obviously the

rationale was very weak, because

there is no conservation value in

breeding exotic animals in New

Zealand because you can’t find

a home for them. So the focus

changed to animals, both introduced

and native on the verge of

extinction. Our focus is the total

New Zealand experience that fits

New Zealand.

to protect animals in the wild

Obviously being a zookeeper

is a dream for many kids, who

imagine hours of playing with

animals. But it’s harder work

than that, isn’t it?

It’s difficult work, yes. Particularly

in a place like ours – our

staff have to be multifunctional,

very impressive people. (They’re)

highly qualified, but also physically

fit to cover long distances

and do a lot of manual work like

landscaping, and outside in all

weathers. That is often the worst

thing, because it can be pouring

with rain or freezing cold

or snowing, but the worse the

weather, the more time you have

to spend with your charges to

make sure they’re okay.

And you must have worked

with some amazing animals.

Heaps of them. The main one

that stands out would have to be

the chimpanzees. You can’t help

but be affected by those animals

when you’re working with them.

We had a male chimp, Charlie,

who I had a particular bond

with, and it’s a bond that’s quite

disturbing and difficult, actually.

What do you mean by that?

Well, you’re dealing with an

animal with intelligence on an

emotional level, which is equivalent

to a human, but you’ve got

them locked away in a cage. And

you try to do your best for them,

but it can never be good enough.

You go through the emotional

highs and lows with them and,

if they get sick or if there’s a

death in the troop, then you go

through the grieving process.

There must be a lot of

laughter, too?

Yes, there are constantly funny

escapades when working with

animals and often from the

most unlikely quarters. They get

naughty and they’re often quite

a bit ahead of you, so you’ve got

to be quick on your feet to keep

ahead of them. You obviously

have animals in the house when

they’re sick. Not so much now,

but we did in the early days. So

you’d have lions or monkeys in

the house and that’s chaos. You’d

get an otter in the pot cupboard,

chucking the pots out. You get

monkeys escaping in vet surgeries

and throwing instruments

around the place, or I had lions

waking up from surgery when

I was halfway home with them,

so they’re sitting up in the front

cab of the truck with you, crazy

things like that. Things have

changed a lot since then.

Did your family ever tell you

to get a real job?

My mother was very understanding,

but my father couldn’t

get his head around it at all.

With all the animals around,

your family sort of grows up

with it. People do look at you a

bit strangely, but for us it was

pretty normal.

And the South Island

Wildlife Hospital – how big a

challenge was that to get off the

ground?

It took a long time – two or

three years working as a trust to

get the hospital up and running.

What kinds of animals do

you work with?

Most of them are birds, just

because that’s what New Zealand

has got, although we get the odd

reptile. Most larger things like

seals are handled by the (Department

of Conservation). And

we’re native species focused.

You were recognised last

year as a member of the New

Zealand Order of Merit for

your work in conservation. Did

that take you by surprise?

Very much by surprise. It was

lovely, but I regret that recognition

didn’t really reflect on other

people involved in the things

it was given for, because it was

never just one person. But it was

a great honour.

CARE: The South Island

Wildlife Hospital is about to

celebrate its second year in

operation.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

And you’ve published a book?

I enjoy writing. Right back

from when I was a wee boy on

trips deer hunting, I used to

write about the trips or what

happened at the park and that

morphed into a book.

I’m intrigued you say

hunting – it’s not something

you’d usually link with

conservationists is it?

I did a lot of hunting when

I was younger. And actually a

lot of conservationists come

from a hunting background. I

don’t hunt now but those skills

still keep me in good stead. I’m

actually about to head down to

Fiordland, choppering down

there to find a rare pig and that’s

basically hunting – we just don’t

kill them.

So no plans to slow down

then?

Absolutely not. It’s not work

for me, it’s what I do. I say I’ve

never worked in my life, because

I wake up in the morning and all

I want to do is go play with the

animals, it’s as simple as that.

Commitment to safety

THE SEVERITY of the

widespread damage caused by

the Canterbury earthquake

sequence meant things had

to be done differently and

innovatively.

Last Friday, I was showed

around Shag Rock Reserve and

Deans Head sites, where Land

Information New Zealand is

making the cliff face safe.

LINZ and its contractors have

made brilliant progress with the

use of world-class technology.

The Port Hills residential red

zone covers 114ha, with 620

properties purchased by the

Crown after the earthquakes.

In spite of facing challenging

and dangerous conditions,

more than 55 per cent of sites

now have been cleared and

LINZ is on track to meet its

target of having all demolitions

completed by 2018.

The work being carried out in

the Port Hills has been recognised

internationally, with

LINZ, Protranz Earth Moving

Limited, Aurecon and RCP

recently nominated for seven

awards at the World Demolition

Summit.

Their commitment to safety

should not be underestimated.

Even with more than 165,000

difficulties that come with

the Port Hills residential red

zones.

hours spent on hundreds of

hazardous sites, there have been

no serious injuries or deaths.

This is a terrific achievement

and reflects the hard work and

careful planning that has gone

into the clearance programme.

A mix of well-tested processes

and innovative solutions have

contributed to the pace and

strong safety record of these

Gerry Brownlee

projects. New technology has

been used to overcome the difficulties

that come with the Port

Hills residential red zones.

The only remote-controlled

excavators in the world have

been operating in the Port Hills,

developed in response to the

particular geotechnical risks

faced in the Port Hills.

Drones to view and assess

risks on sites and virtual reality

technology allow workers to see

3D images of sites for planning

and hazard assessment – along

with advanced geo-modelling

techniques to estimate rockfall

hazards – have all contributed

to the speed and safety of the

Port Hills red zone work.

I’m proud of the work being

carried out in the Port Hills red

zones and looking forward to

when the area is safe and accessible

again.

Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

We said:

The Anglican Diocese

could demolish all or part of

the Christ Church Cathedral

without public consultation

- if it has a plan to rebuild or

restore it.

You said:

Julie Broerse – The vast

majority of the building is still

standing it’s hardly demolished.

Restoration could have been

complete by now if they had just

got on and done it. Cathedral

Square would be a lot further

ahead if that had happened.

Pamela Neil – As a former

member of the congregations of St

Mary’s and the Cathedral, I was

thoroughly disgusted and

sickened when I returned to

Christchurch earlier this month

to see that after six-plus years,

both buildings are gone or might

as well be. Knox Church is rebuilt

and looks great. St Barnabas is

coming along. The Cathedral in

Barbados St is being rebuilt but

it is obvious that the Church of

England community don’t give a

rats. I spent many years attending

church services at St Mary’s, was

married there and my children

were baptised there. Nothing left

now but a pile of bricks. Who ever

is making the decisions here needs

to be sacked, first to go should be

the Bishop.

much talk. It is now time to

IT SOMETIMES feels like

the Saturday night Powerball

draw when MPs talk about

the luck of the biscuit tin.

It is a lottery of sorts, but

not with the chance to win a

million dollars. It’s the chance

that of all the ideas that individual

members want to see

debated in Parliament with

the possibility to become law,

yours will be drawn.

Members’ Bills are not part

of the Government’s current

programme. They’re Bills

drafted up by individual MPs,

generally about issues that

they are passionate about

or strongly feel will make

a difference in their wider

community.

My Bill to have all the

positions on the Canterbury

Regional Council (ECan)

elected by fellow Cantabrians

was drawn last week.

In 2010 the National Government

sacked our democratically

elected council. We

were meant to have elections

in 2013, but these were cancelled

too.

A few weeks ago we all got

to vote for some of the people

to make up a new council –

but not all of them.

Your land. Your people. Your stories.

Six years after the sacking

of our council the Government

still does not trust us to

elect our own council.

Now, while seven members

are elected, six are appointed

by the Government. There

is nowhere else in the

country where this happens.

Nick Smith has called this

the “mixed-model” of

democracy. I think this is

ridiculous.

We don’t have half a

democracy in this country.

I’ve always thought it a bit

rich that any politician, who

is elected to their job, thinks

that they can cancel elections

for others!

Now that we have just had

elections, there will need to

be some updating at select

committee.

With six elected

councillors in place, it seems

sensible to me that the

I’m hopeful that there will

be enough support for my

and go to select committee

where the public can have

their say.

I’d like to see all Canterbury

MPs, regardless of their

political stripes, vote in

favour of their region and

a return to democratic

representation.

Police are

projecting

stolen gun

figures will top

about 220 this

financial year

on the back

of demand

from the

underworld.

Criminals

target

firearms

• By Andrew King

LATEST STATISTICS show more guns

are being stolen in Canterbury to feed the

criminal underworld.

More than 60 guns have been stolen in

the financial year from June, with police

projecting that figure will jump to 220.

Inspector Corrie Parnell confirmed

there is a huge demand from the criminal

underworld to get their hands on firearms.

“We know that the criminal world drives

the demand for these weapons,” he said.

Between the 2010/11 and 2015/16 financial

years there were 289 guns stolen in

Canterbury. They vary from high calibre

rifles, shotguns and pistols.

In July The Star reported demand for

firearms, particularly pistols, was so high

that criminals were paying up to $1000 for

them.

Canterbury has one gun per 270 people

based on 2168 licences issued in 2015 and

the population topping 586,400.

An offender task force was set up in

February to combat the top two per cent of

criminals committing the top 20 per cent

of crime in and around Christchurch.

It is made up of 35 officers who combat

gangs and hardened criminals who commit

a large proportion of crime in the city.

To date they have seized 120 firearms,

10,196 rounds, 1426gm of synthetic cannabis,

126gm of methamphetamine, 1900

cannabis plants, 6691gm of dry cannabis

and $225,046 cash.

Superintendent John Price said he

believes the task force is recovering the

majority of stolen weapons.

“Guns are pretty hard to steal when they

are stored properly . . . if they are being

stolen from rural properties I would suggest

they are not being stored correctly,” he

said.

Canterbury has the sixth highest recorded

gun theft rate in the country behind

Waikato (415), Central (316), Bay of Plenty

(316), Northland (294) and Southern (293).

Offender task force results since

February 13, 2016:

•133 searches of people, vehicles

and property

•120 guns recovered

•10,196 rounds recovered

•1426gm of synthetic cannabis

seized

•126gm of methamphetamine seized

•1900 cannabis plants seized

•6691gm of dry cannabis seized

Heroes in the sun

Rachel Vogan says geraniums flourish in the

heat and can make colour statements in a

range of garden areas

UP UNTIL very recently I have

loved to loath old-fashioned types

of geraniums.

You know the ones – with that

hideous smell, which makes

some people sneeze or gag. The

intensity stemmed from my

childhood, when Nana had them

planted all over her garden on

the dry, barren clay banks of her

garden at the head of Akaroa

Harbour.

Every time a friend would

pop over and admire her garden

they would be sent home with a

pile of cuttings, often including

geraniums. As her apprentice,

she would ask me to hold them,

but the aroma would give me a

sneezing fit and seemed to linger

on my fingers for hours. But I

sucked it up, as I adored my nana.

Last season, however, I did a

massive U-turn. I started growing

geraniums in pots and in parts

of the garden that struggle to get

enough water and attention –

basically in areas the hose doesn’t

reach and in which the soil is so

barren and hard I can’t get a fork

in. And they flourished, so much

so I am now a convert – as long as

I do not need to go near them or

touch them, we get on just fine.

Geraniums are one of the most

widely grown and highly regarded

flowers in the world. Little else

can match them for durability and

flower power throughout the year,

blooming for over nine months,

and in some cases in a sheltered

spot all year round.

Plant breeders have gone mad

and bred piles and piles of new

hybrid varieties. Many flower for

longer, have brighter-coloured

blooms, the growth habits are

more compact and they seem to

be more disease resistant as well.

Many also self-clean, so that when

the flowers finish, the old blooms

just fall off and new flower stems

appear. These geraniums thrive

in sunny, dry spots, and are ideal

for those of us who may forget to

water their pots.

Blueberries

If you love to pick and eat fresh, have you

tried growing your own blueberries?

We have all heard of blueberries, but what a

lot of us do not know is that they are easy to

grow. Blueberries are a wonder food and are a

fantastic addition to the garden whether you

grow them as specimen plants, in containers,

or as a low hedge.

Blueberry Swirl – A self-fertile plant, meaning

the flowers can be fertilised with their own

pollen. Many varieties of blueberries require

the presence of another variety for pollination

and fruit set. ‘Swirl’ is a late-season rabbit-eye

blueberry, with flowers and fruit coming after

most other varieties. It is also more heat and

drought tolerant and the fruit are tasty and

sweet.

Blueberry Delight – One of the most

attractive, vigorous and high-yielding

southern high-bush varieties. The summer

fruit are medium to large sky-blue berries

with a sweet and spicy flavour. The bright

blue-green foliage provides a perfect contrast

to the pink and white spring flowers. This

variety enjoys cool nights and yields best

when planted with other varieties.

rapidly in the last two weeks of ripening.

Lack of water can mean a poor crop and dark,

undersized berries.

While blueberries are resistant to most

diseases, it is prudent to spray to prevent

mildew and cover them to protect the

ripening berries from birds. The plants are

hardy to minus four degrees, although frost

will damage flowers.

Knowing how to prune blueberries is

important, because fruit is borne on last

season’s wood and the most vigorous wood

bears the largest fruit. The flower buds that

will produce next year’s crop develop on the

outer part of this year’s growth in late summer

as stems mature. Minimum pruning consists

of the removal of dead or damaged wood and

any weak growth or twiggy old branches.

Remove some of the oldest branches after

four to five years to encourage new growth.

While light pruning is possible year around,

winter is the best time for heavy pruning.

5 WAYS TO USE GERANIUMS

1. Patio pots, planters and window boxes.

They thrive as container plants and, in most

regions, flower from October until winter

knocks on the door in June.

2. En masse. Create colourful bedding

displays. Allow 50cm between plants.

3. Hanging baskets. The tumbling and

ground-hugging varieties make brilliant

basket cases. Make sure the basket has

plenty of root room.

4. Walls of colour. Look for the climbing

varieties to cover banks and walls in cloaks of

colour. Initially, they may need support to help

them cling.

5. Indoor plants. Every now and again, rinse

them under the hose or shower to freshen

up the leaves and they will more than likely

bloom all year round.

TREAT THEM MEAN

Sounds terrible, but the less you feed

geraniums, in terms of fertiliser, the better

they seem to bloom. Therefore not a lot of

extra food is required.

GERANIUMS FOR FREE

Geraniums easily root from cuttings or

snippets taken from plants. Simply remove

the lower leaves and place into a glass of

water or pottle of seed-raising mix and within

four to six weeks roots will appear.

Pluck the tips out of new plants to encourage

more side branching. These tips can be used

as cuttings.

cranesbill and numerous cultivars and named

hybrids.

Gardening Advice

with

Congratulations!

Today’s winning question came from Wendy Higgison,

who received a Daltons Tomato Prize Pack.

QUESTION

I love sweet peas. What is the best fertiliser when planting and during growth? Would it

be best to use liquid feed?

ANSWER

Sweet peas are a lovely addition to any garden and can

be grown from either seed or seedlings, depending on

your preference. They are not gross feeders, so normal

soil preparation prior to planting is usually sufficient for

strong healthy growth and free flowering. This includes

incorporating Daltons Compost into the existing soil to

ensure good drainage during the growing period (sweet

peas do not like overly wet soil). Over fertilising with high

nitrogen fertiliser can lead to excessive vegetative growth

and reduced flowering.

Sweet peas grow best in a sheltered, warm site. Before

planting seeds or young plants, put a frame or structure

in place to support the vigorous growing sweet peas.

This also helps provide a better sequence of flowering.

As the young plants grow, attach them to your frame so

they are not destroyed by strong winds.

You can apply the occasional side dressing of Daltons

Goldcote Rose & Flower Fertiliser throughout the

growing season and water it in well.

The start of a blooming garden

THE JOY of spring is that there

are plenty of jobs to do in the

garden, especially now the soil

is warming up.

Towards the end of October,

early season varieties of strawberries

will begin to ripen.

Check plants regularly for signs

of grey mould (botrytis), and

remove any affected leaves and

fruit. Add pea straw, hay or

clean bark mulch around the

plants to provide a clean ‘nest’

for developing strawberries.

Raspberries, boysenberries,

loganberries and blackberries

should be growing at a very fast

rate as we move through the

month. Train canes on a wall

or a wire framework. It may

be necessary to remove some

surplus canes where growth

is exceptional. Mulch with

compost to suppress weeds and

conserve soil moisture, and

fruit and berry fertiliser.

Lawns are now in very active

growth and require regular

mowing. Fertilise with lawn

fertiliser and repeat every four

to six weeks. This is the last

month for ‘easy’ laying of a new

lawn or for patching and existing

lawn.

SIGNATURE: Café Pushkin is a classic aristocratic haunt evoking the spirit of the Tsarist times. The eclectic market of Arbat St.

Mix of old and new in Russia’s capital

• By Mike Yardley

GAZING ACROSS the striking

Moscow skyline on a breezy

October morning, Vera, my local

Trafalgar specialist remarked:

“You can feel the breast of winter.”

With the mercury barely making

double digits, autumn’s chill

was a salutary reminder of why

you wouldn’t want to be visiting

Moscow in the depths of winter,

when daytime temperatures can

crater to -30 deg C. But suitably

wrapped up, stepping out to

sample Moscow’s metropolitan

verve soon becomes as invigorating

as the weather.

The Russian capital certainly

hasn’t clung on to the stultifying

days of the Soviet Union. But

powerful symbols of its turbulent

past intermingle with the brash

and flashy to create a multilayered

metropolis, plunging

full-speed ahead.

Moscow’s search for its 21stcentury

identity is complex,

evolving and riveting. From Stalin’s

carved-marble metro stations

to the glittering new skyscrapers,

Moscow has never stopped

flaunting its ambition.

And the metro stations are an

experiential must, a rolling museum

of socialist realism, a style of

art developed in the Soviet Union

with a glorified depiction of communist

values. Vera led us on an

alluring metro tour, where station

after station is lavishly bedecked

in intricate mosaics, stained glass,

majestic pillars, sparkling chandeliers

and bronze statues.

They all trumpet the prestige

and pomp of Stalin and his Soviet

GLORIFIED: Carved-marble adorns Moscow’s metro stations. The city is well illuminated at night.

propaganda. Russia may have

moved on, but these Soviet vestiges

probably never will. Mayakovskaya,

clad in pink and cream

marble, was my favourite.

Post-communism, vast tracts of

the city centre have been pedestrianised,

delightfully atmospheric

spaces to stroll freely, marvelling

at the architecture and the

street theatre. A star specimen is

Arbat St, which is where Russian

aristocracy settled in the 19thcentury.

Many of the nobles’ mansions

have been restored, including

those of some of the nation’s finest

composers and writers, like Alexander

Pushkin. (His blue house

now hosts the Pushkin Museum.)

Arbat’s eclectic street market

brims with portrait painters, great

art, soapbox poets and engaging

buskers. And there’s a hive

of splendid souvenir stores to

get your fill of Faberge eggs and

Matryoshka dolls.

CONTRAST: One of Stalin’s seven sisters.

Pause by the Wall of Peace, an

edifice covered with hundreds of

hand-painted tiles, all expounding

the pursuit of international

friendship.

At the end of Arbat, I stopped

in jaw-dropped awe of one of Stalin’s

Seven Sisters, the monstrous

Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Built in 1947 to commemorate

Moscow’s 800th anniversary,

these wedding-cake style behemoths

stamped Stalin’s enduring

mark on Moscow’s skyline. (The

eighth sister is in Warsaw.)

Like the metro stations, the

conspicuous lack of litter is a

constant across the city centre.

Singapore would be impressed.

When you’re seeking some

Russian retail therapy, savour the

Louvre-like splendour of GUM

Department Store, built in 1890,

an enormous emporium of designer

stores and food outlets.

Don’t miss Gastronom No.1, a

gourmet deli bursting with nostalgic

Russian foods and gourmet

delicacies including a dizzying

range of caviar.

Moscow’s culinary scene caters

to every imaginable fancy, but

here’s some unmissable signatures.

Café Pushkin is an absolute

classic, an aristocratic haunt

which used to be the only eatery

that served European standard

food, and where you could talk

freely without being disturbed

by the roaming ears of the KGB’s

flunkies.

Now serving Russian and

French cuisine, it evokes the spirit

of Tsarist times. Built in 1825, the

guest list is studded with a litany

of luminaries, from Bill Clinton

to Meryl Streep. Painstakingly

renovated to late-Tsarist splendour,

the waiters are dressed in

period attire and the food – beef

stroganoff, perfectly prepared

fish, and pelmeni dumplings – is

divine.

Another old-school charmer

is Café Chekhov, elaborately

decorated in Art Nouveau style.

Serving “new Russian’ cuisine,

try their version of borsch with

apples in it.

Bar Strelka is the headquarters

of Moscow’s hipster parade,

attached to the Strelka Design

Institute, a former industrial area

that’s now a creative hub of galleries,

bars and offices. You’ll love

Bar Strelka’s roof terrace for its

skyline views, while you nibble on

the share plates.

A nostalgic Soviet relic is the

image of a young girl in a

headscarf. It still adorns the packaging

of Red October chocolate

which has been in business since

1861. You can see their original

factory in Strelka.

Moscow’s nightlife scene is

pulsating, but you’ll struggle to

get into the glamour clubs, unless

you’re a 1.8m blonde in a mini

skirt, with legs like a giraffe. But a

cracking nightspot is the rooftophugging

O2 Lounge of the Ritz-

Carlton, which overlooks Red

Square all aglow.

It’s just the perch for a drinkable

version of a Molotov cocktail.

Theatre/Arts

From comedy to tragedy for director

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SKILLED IN bringing the house

down, Daniel Pengelly has been

involved with The Court Jesters

for about 12 years.

Now in his role as associate

director at The Court Theatre,

he has branched out from his

comedy background to produce

a thought-provoking production

of The Events written by David

Greig.

Pengelly (let) will direct the

show, which has been

influenced by the mass

murder of 77 people

in Norway by Anders

Behring Breivik in

2011.

Pengelly, 29, said it

has been one of the

hardest projects he had

done as an associate director but

one of the most satisfying.

“I have been scared of this for

months, but also really excited,”

he said.

The Events tells the story of

a community choir director

searching for answers ater a

young man came into her choir

and shot several of the members.

“For me, it opens up this

global issue that is happening in

America. It is trying to open up

questions and asking why. Why

in this society are they producing

these young men who will

go and do these horrific things?

How did they get so disconnected

from their community?”

Pengelly said.

The show will also feature 13

choirs from around Canterbury.

Pengelly said the choirs will

perform about seven songs in the

show but they have not seen the

script.

“At some points they are performers

and stand up and sing,

and at other points they are the

audience. They haven’t read it so

they are experiencing it for the

first time,” he said.

Pengelly started performing at

The Court Theatre when he was

13. The only time he has been

away was to study his masters in

theatre arts (directing) from Toi

Whakaari and Victoria University

of Wellington.

As well as holding a masters,

Pengelly studied cookery at Ara

Institute of Canterbury and commerce

at Canterbury University,

which, he says, has helped him

make some of his best artistic

decisions as an associate director.

He said the reason he had

stayed at The Court Theatre

for so long was because of the

diversity of work he gets to do

compared to other theatres.

“We will do a famous musical

off West End and then next to it

we will do a kids show written

by a Christchurch writer for

Christchurch kids,” he said.

Next up, Pengelly will be going

back to his grassroots of comedy

and children’s theatre to direct

the play Robin Hood as part of

the city council’s SummerTimes

programme.

The Events will run at

The Court Theatre from

Saturday to November 12. To

CITY CHORUS FIFTH IN WORLDS

place in the 2016 Sweet Adelines International

Chorus Competition in Las Vegas. As well

as placing fith in the world, the chorus

received the most entertaining chorus award.

Representing Sweet Adelines Region 35 New

Zealand, the 133-women choir competed

against 10 other chorus’ from around the

SPREADING HER WINGS: Jaime Spencer (left and above)

is hoping to take the modelling world by storm as she

prepares to walk at New York Fashion Week (below).

Lincoln model New York-bound

• By Annabelle Dick

NEW YORK Fashion Week

is one of the most prestigious

fashion events in the world,

showcasing high-profile

designers and exclusive

models – and now Lincoln’s

Jaime Spencer will get to walk

amongst them.

Miss Spencer, 19, is one of six

New Zealand and Australian

models who have been handpicked

through the Ozlink

fashion programme to walk in

several NYFW shows.

“We’re walking for international

designers with international

models and it’s such a

massive opportunity,” she said.

“I don’t even know how to

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

describe it – it’s still sinking in

a wee bit. I still cry every time I

speak about it.”

Miss Spencer will spend 10

days in New York taking part

in the major international

Amit Singh Chauhan show,

two boutique shows and two

realway shows.

She will also partake in a city

and studio photo shoot with a

professional fashion photographer.

“Having this work in my

portfolio will look really good.

This could literally kick start a

whole career and that’s the best

part about it,” she said.

Miss Spencer has been

modelling for three years after

trying a modelling course with

Portfolio.

Now with NZ Models &

Talent, she credits owner Kelly

Morrison with helping her get

the NYFW opportunity.

Standing at the shorter end

of the modelling spectrum at

1.73m, she said her height has

been an issue.

“I’m classed as a petite model,

but I’ll still get the chance to

strut my stuff and show them

what I’m worth and that I can

do this,” she said.

Miss Spencer is studying

towards a Bachelor of Criminal

Justice at Canterbury University.

The Lincoln local is a sporty,

rural girl who admits she didn’t

see herself getting this far.

“It’s quite funny – a small

country girl getting such a big

opportunity,” she said.

She hopes to get scouted

while overseas and combine

her love of modelling with a

career in criminal justice.

“Modelling has always been

that dream that every girl has

had but never really follows

through on. I wouldn’t mind

being the next Gigi Hadid with

a criminal law degree,” she

said.

There’s still some work to do

to get to the United States as

she needs sponsorship for the

expensive trip. Get in touch

New York.

Watch the A380 arrive

from runway viewing area

THE DAY Christchurch

plane-spotters have been waiting

for is nearly here.

Monday, October 31, will

see the 1.45pm arrival of the

first scheduled A380 aircraft at

Christchurch Airport, ahead of

an on-going daily service.

To give as many people as possible

the best view of the inaugural

arrival, the airport will open a

special viewing area for that day

only.

The airport’s chief aeronautical

and commercial officer Justin

Watson says the grassed area opposite

the main runway will offer

hundreds of people the chance to

park up to witness, film and photograph

the landing at 1.45pm.

“We’ve dubbed it ‘plane-spotters’

park,’ because we are very

aware of aviation enthusiasts’

excitement at this spectacular

aircraft flying in here that day,

and every day afterwards,” he

says.

“We’ll open plane-spotters’

park at 11am and close it after

the double-decker aircraft departs

at 6.45pm.

“This will be the best area

from which to see the plane. Two

other roads people sometimes

park on near the terminal will be

closed that day to help us manage

expected traffic flows and

keep everyone safe, so I suggest

people check the map to get to

plane-spotters’ park.

“That viewing area will be accessed

from Pound Rd and we’ll

have traffic management signs

and staff on the roads leading to

it, to assist everyone to get to the

area safely.”

It’s time to stop

gutter clutter

Dare-devil

children get

hearts racing

MY eldest daughter

turned seven last

week and overnight,

it seems, she took

a definite leap into

the growing-up

department.

She’s recently

discovered a love for speed and

adrenalin, she was particularly rapt to

receive a new pair of roller blades.

She’s definitely her father’s daughter

when it comes to climbing, jumping and

outdoor pursuits. She’s taken to climbing

trees as high as she can possibly go;

flipping and bouncing herself all over

the trampoline; and swinging on and off

the monkey bars like a budding trapeze

artist.

Her latest conquest, however, pushed

my nerves to the limit. I walked into

the garden at the exact time she had

launched herself off the garage roof and

into (safely, thank goodness) the spongycreeper-vine-bed

below. Even though it

provided a soft landing, it gave me the

fright of my life to see such precious

cargo take a running jump off the top of

a single-storey building.

Her face was a picture of both

exhilaration and surprise once she

realised she’d landed it safely, and she

immediately hopped up to repeat her

feat.

I cut her off at the chase and found

myself lecturing her on the potential for

broken bones and consequences of casts.

In spite her protests, I strongly advised

that she reconsider her options the

next time she thought it a good idea to

Geronimo herself into thin air, and sent

her to play on the tramp.

To be honest, however, I was quietly

impressed at the level of courage on

display – I’m terribly afraid of heights,

and couldn’t fathom the concept of even

standing on a roof, let alone jumping off

it. Yet this wasn’t about me transferring

my fears onto my daughter – this was my

mama bear instinct kicking in to protect

my (barely) seven-year old child.

Her father, on the other hand, instantly

recognised her chip-off-the-old-block

Melissa McDonnell

mentality, and I could see the cogs

turning as to whether he should issue a

high-five of praise, or otherwise follow

my lead to reiterate the inherent risks

involved.

Known for his dare-devil streak, he

remains a naturally curious fellow and

I suspect he would have been quite

keen for her (and possibly himself) to

have a second crack. Nonetheless, he

put on his dad-hat, and supported me

in the decision to curb this particular

stunt.

We balance each other in this respect

when it comes to raising our children

– he encourages me to challenge my

(sometimes irrational) fears, and I help

him find balance in taking accountable

levels of risk (although there are times

when we struggle to find a happy

medium).

As my seven-year old remains

unimpressed with us pulling the funpolice

card, I think she understands why

we made this decision. Although she’s

believes she’s in tune with what her body

can handle, she actually has no concept

as to how fragile she really is.

But at the end of the day, she’s a strong

character and I know that soon enough

I will have to accept that she’s someone

who is likely to push herself to a point

where a mistake (or break) will serve as

her learning curve.

In that sense, I need to support her

growth in confidence and independence,

and prepare myself for the day when I

will no longer be able to “forbid” her

from doing something, but will rather

have to let go, trust her judgement,

and be there to help if/when she needs

me.

In the meantime, I hope we have seen

an end to this roof-jumping malarkey –

my heart can’t take much more.

dedicated cleaners provide a superior clean

2. Screening for type 2 diabetes is important

to modify its course and reduce the risk of

complications.

3. Screening for diabetes complications is

an essential part of managing type 1 and type

2 diabetes.

Many complications can be

picked up in their early stages

by screening programmes

The earlier a person is diagnosed, the earlier

treatment can be initiated in order to reduce

the risk of harmful and costly complications.

A person can have type 2 diabetes for several

years without showing any symptoms, during

which time high blood glucose is silently

damaging the body. There is therefore an

urgent need to screen, diagnose and provide

appropriate treatments and information to

people with diabetes. Our awareness day will

highlight cost-effective solutions that exist to

help identify people with undiagnosed type 2

diabetes and those at risk of developing it in

the future.

Diabetes is a leading

cause of blindness.

Diabetes is a leading cause of cardiovascular

disease, blindness, kidney failure and lowerlimb

amputation. Over one third of all

people currently living with type 1 and type 2

diabetes will develop some form of damage to

their eyes that can lead to blindness.

These complications can be prevented or

delayed by maintaining blood glucose, blood

pressure and cholesterol levels as close to

normal as possible. Many complications can

be picked up in their early stages through

screening, so that treatment can be given to

prevent them becoming more serious.

Our Diabetes Christchurch Awareness

Promotions this year highlights the

importance of integrating screening for

diabetes complications into ongoing care

for people living with diabetes. Canterbury’s

DHB diabetes statistics show that there are

20,598 people with known diabetes in the

Canterbury region. People with diabetes

account for 4.1% of the enrolled population.

Maori, Pacific and Indian populations are

more than 50% more likely to have diabetes

than the enrolled population. Approximately

10% have type 1 diabetes and 88% have type

2 diabetes.

These 20,598 people can have either Type 1,

Type 2, Gestational, and another 20,000+ have

Pre-Diabetes (and many of these don’t even

know it). Through local diabetes research

projects and education programmes, people

with diabetes, and their family, friends and

whanau can better understand and better

manage this chronic condition.

DIABETES AWARENESS

The Star

Diabetes can seriously affect your eyes

Diabetes can damage your eyes before you

notice any change in vision. But by picking

up these early signs of diabetic eye damage

and getting them treated, you can reduce the

chance of serious damage. When diabetic eye

damage is more severe it can be irreversible

and there is a risk you will lose your sight.

There are things you can do to prevent

diabetic eye disease, or keep it as mild as

possible to protect your vision. Make sure you:

• Have good control of your blood sugar

levels and closely monitor your diabetes with

your GP or specialist.

• Stop Smoking. Smoking increases the risk

of serious eye disease

• Treat high blood pressure and high

cholesterol

• If you have type 1 diabetes, make sure you

start having regular eye checks from five years

after you are diagnosed (after the age of 12).

• If you have type 2 diabetes, start having

regular eye checks as soon as you are

diagnosed.

• Get an extra eye examination if you are

pregnant, and monitor your diabetes closely

with your GP. Pregnancy poses extra risks to

your sight if you have diabetes

• Let your doctor or eye-care professional

know straight away if there are any sudden

changes to your vision.

If you show certain signs of diabetes

affecting your eyes, you may be advised to

have a diabetes eye check more often. If you

have diabetes and haven’t been having an eye

check, speak to your GP or practice nurse for

a referral.

Diabetic retinopathy is the name for any

damage to the retina caused by diabetes.

Anyone with diabetes – type 1 or 2, or

gestational – needs to have a check for diabetic

retinopathy, as it can happen at any time. Over

time, high blood sugar levels damage the

blood vessels in the retina, at the back of your

eye, which can then bleed.

The pictures below show what eye specialists

see when they look through your pupil to the

retina at the back. At the top is a normal,

healthy eye. Below it is an eye with diabetic

retinopathy. You can see some burst blood

vessels.

Diabetes can damage the light-sensitive area

on the back of your eyes, called the retina.

Light goes in through the front of our eyes

and onto the retina at the back. The retina

acts like a camera film, capturing the images

we see. The macula is the central part of the

retina. It is the most sensitive part, and it

allows us to see the fine detail that we need to

read, recognise faces and to drive. It also lets

us see colour.

The rest of the retina lets us see less defined

images. It gives us our peripheral vision, or

side vision, helps us sense movement, and

helps us see at night.

People with diabetes are more likely to suffer

from glaucoma than people without diabetes.

The longer someone has had diabetes, the more

likely they are to get glaucoma. Glaucoma is

an increase in pressure inside your eye that

can make you lose your vision. Your risk of

glaucoma increases with age. You can get your

eyes checked for signs of glaucoma when you

have your diabetes eye check.

People with diabetes are also more likely to

get cataracts, and to get them at a younger age

than people without diabetes. Their cataracts

are also likely to get worse much more quickly.

A cataract is when the eye’s clear lens gets

cloudy, blocking light.

Diabetes can badly damage your eyes before

you notice any change in your vision.

Most people with early diabetic retinopathy

have no symptoms. Even with the more

dangerous sight-threatening form of diabetic

retinopathy, people sometimes have no

symptoms until it is too late to treat them.

For this reason, you should have your

eyes examined regularly by an eye-care

professional.

A diabetes eye check is different to a normal

eye check for your glasses. A special diabetes

eye check is called retinal screening. Ask

your GP to refer you to the Canterbury DHB

Ophthalmology (eye) Department so you can

go on to the publicly funded retinal screening

programme. Or you can choose to pay for a

private ophthalmologist or optometrist to do

your retinal screening.

In Canterbury, diabetic eye screening

is carried out by the Canterbury Diabetic

Retinopathy Photographic Screening Service.

Treatment doesn’t cure diabetic retinopathy,

and it doesn’t usually restore your vision

to what it was before. However, it can slow

down the damage and stop new damage from

“Treadle” for Healthy Feet

“Treadling” on an Aircycle circulation

booster is a highly effective way to keep

feet healthy,” says Lynne Taylor, Manager of

Diabetes Christchurch.

Maintaining good blood flow in the feet

is key in preventative foot care and is simple

with an Aircycle. The “treadle” exercise works

the calf muscles and that pumps the blood.

“It’s in our feet that arthritis, complications

of diabetes including, nerve, neuropathy and

circulatory disorders often show up,” says

Lynne. .”It’s important to heed the first signs,

as loss of feeling can mean abrasions, ulcers

and other foot problems go undetected or do

not heal, sometimes leading to amputation”.

By maintaining good blood flow with the

Aircycle, people frequently report numb,

tingling feet regain feeling, normal colour

and flexibililty, swollen ankles and cramps are

relieved and ulcers heal.

You do not need special exercise times with

the Aircycle. Just keep moving gently while

having coffee, watching TV or chatting on the

happening. It is very important that you get

good control over your blood sugar, as this

can reduce any further damage.

Laser treatment: If diabetic retinopathy is

threatening your vision, laser treatment may

be an option. The laser seals leaking blood

vessels in your retina and also stops fragile,

abnormal blood vessels from growing. These

blood vessels may bleed and suddenly reduce

your sight. The laser can treat just one spot,

such as the macula. This is called focal laser

treatment. Or it can be used more widely in

the retina, to help slow or stop any further

damage.

Injections: Medicines can help to reduce

the growth of abnormal blood vessels and

reduce the amount of fluid leaking from them.

These medicines can be injected into your

eye, after it is numbed with local anaesthetic.

This treatment is especially useful if the

retinopathy is affecting your macula – the

part of the retina that is responsible for fine,

detailed vision. This treatment can only be

done by ophthalmologists (eye doctors) in

their clinics.

Surgery: Some people with advanced

diabetic eye disease and severe loss of vision

need retinal surgery. If you have this surgery,

you may need to stay in hospital overnight.

Most people with diabetes will get some

retinopathy. If it’s mild it won’t affect your

vision, but it can get worse if it’s not treated.

How mild or severe it becomes depends

on how well-controlled your diabetes is

and whether you have regular diabetic eye

screening tests.

New Brighton trio get second

chance in Canterbury final

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE NEW Brighton

Rugby Club players have a

shot at finals redemption when

Canterbury play Tasman in the

Mitre 10 Cup premiership final

on Saturday.

Billy Harmon, Oliver Jager

and Nathan Vella were part of

the New Brighton team that

made it all the way to this

year’s Christchurch metro

rugby final before falling to

Lincoln University 12-49 at

Rugby Park.

The trio then joined All Black

Ryan Crotty as the only New

Brighton players to be named in

the Canterbury squad.

After impressing during

their debut seasons for the

province, all three were named

to start from the bench in

last weekend’s semi-final win

against Counties Manukau.

For Irish prop Oliver Jager,

Saturday will be his first taste of

finals’ football this year. The 21-

old missed out on playing in the

metro final for New Brighton

after sustaining an injury late in

the season.

“I was still there running the

waters on. Making it to the final

was a great experience and,

hopefully, we can go one better

next year,” said Jager.

After growing up in Ireland

and waking up in the early

hours of the morning to watch

New Zealand provincial games,

Jager is now just one step away

from a boyhood dream.

“It’s great to have another

chance to play in a final so

soon after missing the last one.

And, with this one being a New

Zealand title, it’s even more

special,” said Jager.

Billy Harmon will also have

a point to prove following July’s

SEASIDERS:

The New

Brighton

trio of Oliver

Jager,

Nathan Vella

and Billy

Harmon

have already

tasted

success with

Canterbury,

winning the

Ranfurly

Shield from

Waikato in

September. ​

metro final. The loose forward

had a day to forget after being

red carded midway through the

first half for a dangerous tackle

on Jordie Barrett.

“I was really gutted, it was

such a big build up to the game.

Having the game cut short was

really hard to take at the time.

It’s been nice to have something

else to concentrate on now

and not having that be my last

memory of rugby this season,”

said Harmon.

The Canterbury team to play

Tasman will be named later

today.

United scores new

Dutch director

CHRISTCHURCH United

Football Club, which recently

merged with the Christchurch

Football Academy, has scored

a major coup by recruiting

experienced international coach

Pieter in ‘t Groen.

In ‘t Groen (right)

will take on the role of

technical director at

Christchurch United from

next year. He has a UEFA

A coaching licence and a

distinguished track record

developing club structures and

youth academies in the Netherlands,

Africa and the Middle East.

He also had a successful playing

career, including three seasons in

the Dutch Eredivisie with RKC

Waalwijk, the former club of All

Whites great Ivan Vicelich.

Christchurch United president

Slava Meyn is proud to be able

to bring another top coach to

Christchurch. “We have already

been fortunate to have Cvetan

Ivanov, another UEFA A licenced

coach, running our academy, but

we expect that Pieter’s experience

around the world will help us take

the club to another level,” Meyn

said.

In ‘t Groen will move his family

to New Zealand from Qatar,

The Star

where he has been technical director

at the Al Arabi club’s football

academy. He has also worked

in a management role with the

renowned Red Bull Academy in

Ghana, which has produced numerous

African talents for

Europe’s top leagues.

Before embarking on his

overseas adventures, he

worked as a coach at the

youth academy of Eredivisie

club Willem II and was

coaching development

officer for the Dutch Football Association.

In ‘t Groen also has an economics

degree and worked several

years for a pension investment

company before turning his passion

for coaching into a full-time

career.

The 47-year-old Dutchman says

he is excited by the opportunity

in Christchurch and is looking

forward to discovering the Kiwi

culture.

“I was attracted by the vision of

Slava and his team to create the

best environment for young footballers

to reach their full potential.

(Slava) has big plans and I am

pleased to be part of that.”

In ‘t Groen will arrive in

Christchurch in December.

The biggest range of vehicles

in one location

VW Tiguan takes up

the SUV challenge

• By Ross Kiddie

FOR THOSE who have

long desired a Volkswagen

Touareg sport utility

vehicle but have found

the cost a little prohibitive

and its size daunting,

Volkswagen still have an

affordable SUV in the form

of its Tiguan.

A completely new

Tiguan has just landed and,

although it doesn’t measure

up to Touareg in any shape

or form, it is still a very

desirable mid-size SUV

which rides and drives

very much like sedans

and hatchbacks from

Volkwagen’s car line.

The Tiguan, alongside

Ford’s Kuga, has long been

my favourite SUV of this

size, and the new generation

model does little to

alter my opinion of it. Sure,

it gets a lot more kit and

the rounded shape is even

more appealing, but it still

carries the fundamentals

which have made it a popular

car here and globally.

The newcomer lands in

three variants – there’s the

entry-level 1.4-litre TSi

at $41,990 and $47,990,

depending on specification;

there’s a 2-litre TSi

at $57,990 and $66,990,

interestingly, it gets the

high-performance 162kW

engine from the Golf GTi;

and in the test car’s case the

Tiguan lists at $59,990, it

gets a 2-litre turbocharged

diesel engine.

As much as I would find

the 2-litre TSi interesting,

I think the diesel would be

the variant for me, this is a

driveline that Volkswagen

do very well, and somehow

the Tiguan lends itself to

diesel power, it is powerful

yet also thrifty.

In terms of figures, the

1968cc diesel pumps out a

healthy 110kw at the top

end (3500-4000rpm), while

it is also rated with a solid

340Nm of torque, available

all of the way from

1750rpm to 3000rpm.

Drive is sent through a

seven-speed direct shift

automatic gearbox. There

are only two pedals so it

should be treated like a

normal auto. The benefits

are the quick shifts, and

with the number of ratios

VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN: Flowing, rounded lines.

gear changes are barely

detectable and there’s never

a point where you think

the wrong gear is selected.

I like the way the engine

works in conjunction with

the gearbox, it is happy to

operate at low revolutions,

holding a tall gear during

slow speed travel and that

promotes fuel efficiency.

Of course, the gearbox

will quickly change down

if immediate acceleration

is required, the twin

clutch system of DSG promotes

that, but the entire

mechanical operation is

designed so that fuel wastage

is eliminated.

• Price – VW Tiguan

TDi, $59,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4486mm;

width, 2099mm;

height, 1643mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

1968cc,

110kW, 340Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage –

5.6l/100km

Volkswagen claims a 5.6-

litre per 100km (50mpg)

combined cycle average

for the diesel unit. At

100km/h on the highway

the engine is turning over

at just 1650rpm registering

an amazing 4.7l/100km

(60mpg) figure. After a long

drive and some use on suburban

streets the Tiguan’s

trip computer was showing

a 7l/100km (40mpg) figure.

By my reckoning these are

good results.

The Tiguan is a purposeful

family wagon. It has

large car comfort packaged

into a mid-size vehicle

which drives and rides

STYLE:

The Tiguan

has design

appeal.

with comfort, along with

presenting the driver with

an informative driving sensation.

In all forms the Tiguan

is fitted with Volkswagen’s

4Motion driveline. The

Tiguan can’t be classed as

an off-roader, there aren’t

many SUVs which are, but

it is capable in the loose

and with 200mm of ground

clearance it would accept a

hilly incline or two. It also

has drive modes suitable

for low grip conditions.

I took the test car on

a shingle track near

Hororata. Grip is plentiful

while the fully independent

suspension absorbs sudden

wheel travel so that the incabin

ride is protected.

On the seal, the Tiguan

glides through the air with

quiet ease and is capable

when presented with a

quick corner or two. The

Tiguan is very car-like,

there’s no presence of

height and certainly bulk,

it feels lithe, nimble and

spirited.

The Tiguan rides on high

quality Pirelli Scorpion

tyres (235/50 x 19in) and

even though they don’t

have an aggressive pattern,

they are capable in the

loose and are certainly up

to a cornering challenge.

They don’t moan under

pressure and combine to

give the driver positive

information as to what is

happening in relation to

the road surface.

The new Tiguan carries

all of Volkswagen’s latest

technology, especially for

safety where it features an

autonomous emergency

braking system. It stops

short of taking autonomous

driving any further, but it’s

my guess given the technology

already in production

throughout the wider

Volkswagen/Audi enterprise,

it won’t be long before

it is advanced further.

In the interim, the

Tiguan is a tidy package.

It is a versatile, innovative

all-rounder, and if I was

a mid-size SUV buyer it

would be top of my list.

Prepare for Summer

Throw open the windows and doors and invite the sunshine in with a

few important chores that will set you up for summer.

Now is the time to prepare our homes so

by the time summer rolls around we can sit

back and enjoy the fruits of our labour.

Start indoors by throwing the windows

and doors open to let in some fresh air.

Clean the windows inside and out so you can

admire the view across your garden.

Replace your cosy winter flannel sheets

and heavy duvet covers for lighter linens with

a high thread-count and refresh your colour

scheme with throws and scatter cushions in

lighter, brighter hues for summery appeal.

Reorganise your wardrobe by packing

away winter outfits to make room for

summer dresses and sandals. Dry-cleaning

woollen items – along with any cotton and

synthetic fibres you store with them – will

prevent moth damage.

Refresh bathrooms with new towels

in a splash of vibrant colour, ventilate by

throwing the windows open and add a plant

beside the sink to filter the air. Look for

plants with high purification levels like snake

plants, spider plants, English ivy, and smallleafed

rubber plants.

The next room to attack is the kitchen.

Empty out the freezer and defrost it

completely. Throw out anything that has

been in there over a year (less time for

ground meat, chicken and leftovers), as

frozen food loses flavour and texture over

time, and this will make precious room

for summer treats like ice cream and meat

for the barbie. Ensure your fridge is in top

working order by giving the condensing coils

a thorough clean.

With barbecue season beckoning, make

sure all the barbecue is clean and has a full

gas tank. If you have a charcoal grill, it pays

to invest in an inexpensive chimney starter

to quickly and safely light the coals, as using

lighter fluid can permeate the taste of your

food.

Dust off the outdoor furniture and

organise your garage so when the next hot

day arrives you'll be all set to grab what you

need to hit the beach.

Give patios a good scrub with a broom and

hot soapy water or hire a water blaster from

your local home centre to do the job.

Before you know it, you'll be all set for

summer!

Applicant:

Lyttelton Port Company Limited

Address for service: Jared Pettersson, Lyttelton Port Company Limited, Private bag 501, Lyttelton 8841; or email: Jared.Pettersson@lpc.co.nz

The Canterbury Regional Council has received an application from Lyttelton Port Company for resource consents in respect of its proposed Channel Deepening Project (CDP).

This CDP involves:

• Channel deepening dredging to enable larger vessels to access Lyttelton Port;

• Subsequent maintenance dredging of the channel created after deepening; and

• Dredging of seabed material at Te Awaparahi Bay in preparation for reclaiming land for a new container facility.

Channel Deepening Dredging

The applicant seeks to dredge the area marked ‘Dredging for channel deepening’ as shown on Figure 1, to a depth that allows a vessel with a 14.5 metre draught to enter Lyttelton Port at all tide levels. In addition to that, the

applicant seeks to dredge the seabed material at Te Awaparahi Bay in preparation for reclaiming land for a new container facility. Dredge spoil (seabed material) will be disposed of at the channel deepening spoil disposal ground

indicated on Figure 1.

The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in

relation to the proposed channel deepening dredging.

(1) CRC172455 - A Coastal Permit:

a. to dredge (disturb) seabed material for purposes of

deepening, extending and widening a shipping (navigation)

channel that includes a ship-turning basin and berth pockets;

and

b. to dredge seabed material in preparation for reclaiming land

for a new container facility in Te Awaparahi Bay; and

c. to deposit seabed material on the seabed associated with (a)

and (b) above.

(2) CRC172522 - A Discharge Permit:

a. to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water) into

water associated with channel deepening dredging as described

in (1) above.

Figure 1: Site Plan for Channel Deepening and spoil

disposal ground

Figure 1

Maintenance Dredging

The applicant seeks to undertake dredging to maintain the

navigational channel, ship-turning basin and berth pockets in the

area marked as the ‘Deepened shipping channel’ on Figure 2, to

a depth required for a vessel with a 14.5 metre draught to enter

Lyttelton Port at all tides. Dredge spoil (seabed material) will

be disposed of primarily at the offshore maintenance disposal

grounds as shown on Figure 2, with the Godley Head spoil

disposal ground being retained as an alternative option.

The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in

relation to the proposed maintenance dredging.

(3) CRC172456 - A Coastal Permit:

a. to dredge (disturb) seabed material for purposes

of maintaining the depth of a shipping (navigation)

channel that includes a ship-turning basin and berth

pockets; and

b. to deposit seabed material on the seabed associated

with 3(a) above;

(4) CRC172523 - A Discharge Permit:

a. to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water)

into water associated with maintenance dredging in (3)

above.

Figure 2: Site Plan for maintenance dredging

The application includes an assessment of effects.

A consent duration of 35 years is sought for the above four

consents.

A 10 year lapse period is sought for the channel deepening

dredging consents. A 12 year lapse period is sought for the

maintenance dredging consents.
