future in

doubt after

funding cut

GOOD TIMES ROLL: Sol Square in its heyday as a popular night spot and after the quakes.

Is Hendo back in Sol Square?

• By Tom Doudney

THE TROUBLED Sol Square

site’s main block was sold at

auction yesterday and word

on the street is that David

Henderson is back involved.

When asked by The Star yesterday

if he was involved in the

purchase of the central city bar

area, damaged in the February

2011 earthquake and by a fire

in July, he said he didn’t wish to

comment.

“I am quite happy to talk to

The Star but why don’t you diary

it for a couple of weeks, give

me a call, and you and I catch

up for a coffee,” he said.

Colliers International managing

director Hamish Doig

confirmed that the site had been

sold by his company at auction

yesterday but said he had been

instructed by both the buyer

and the vendor not to comment

further.

Colliers was selling the site for

mortgagee BNZ. It was reported

last month that BNZ was expecting

it to fetch more than $4

million.

THE FUTURE of the Santa

Parade is in jeopardy after its

main funding was slashed by

$25,000.

Last year the city council put

$85,000 into the parade. But this

year the parade only received

$60,000.

The Christchurch Santa Parade

Trust says it costs more than

$100,000 to put on the parade

each year. It had asked for

$120,000 of funding.

The event attracts more than

100,000 people from around

Canterbury, and December 4 will

mark its 70th birthday.

Christchurch Santa Parade

Trust chairwoman Anne Jamieson

said the funds were “really,

really tight” and it could be in

strife if it did not secure more

funding for next year.

The parade is in jeopardy,” she

said.

It comes at a time when

the city council is under fire

for spending $800,000 on Sir

Antony Gormley’s sculptures,

and $70,000 into an American

conference, SingularityU, held in

Christchurch.

Former city councillor and

parade compere Barry Corbett

said the event was important to

Christchurch, and needed the

funding.

“How dare they take away

starnews.co.nz

that type of thing yet they give

$800,000 to a statue in the middle

of the Avon. That kind of

makes me wonder.”

City councillor Jamie Gough

said it was difficult to compare

what was being funded by the

city council because they were

so different and they came from

separate funds.

He said the SingularityU conference

was a one-off and it was

“particularly pertinent” to a city

that was regenerating itself.

EDGEWARE residents have

every right to be gutted by what’s

happened with the BP petrol

station expansion.

And, as we highlight in our

page 4 article, it is the city council

they are pointing the finger at.

The residents had no chance

of fighting BP’s plans; they were

crushed by a well financed team

of experts and lawyers.

The residents might have

had a chance if the city council

backed them. But they didn’t

and now that lack of support has

led to a 20m long by 5m high

building right up alongside their

boundary.

For a council that purports to

look after its people, something

has gone awry here.

Our front page lead reports the

future of the Santa Parade could

be in jeopardy – and that would

be a blow to the tens of thousands

of families who attend every year.

The city council has cut some

of its funding; a bit odd when it

pumped 70k into Singularity U.

Funding cut puts parade future in doubt

Bid to bring Santa back

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CHRISTCHURCH man is

on a mission to bring a giant

icon back to the city, but he

could have a battle on his hands

– Santa has a new home.

The 6m, fibreglass Santa with

a beckoning finger used to go

up on the Hay’s building on

Armagh St, and later Farmers,

at Christmas time for about 40

years.

But it was sold about 15 years

ago after Farmers rebuilt its

premises in 1996, and moved to

Levin.

Christchurch actor Jason

Reekers wants to try and bring

Santa back because it was a

piece of history for a city that

had lost so much.

He took to Facebook to see

whether there was any support,

with more than 570 people

sharing the post, and nearly 200

people commenting on it.

However, Horowhenua District

Council Mayor Michael

Feyen said Santa was in good

condition and people loved

seeing him put up in Levin at

Christmas time.

“Sometimes things just move

on and they go to different

places to provide happiness in

different areas,” he said.

“Some things are best just

left alone and the people of

Christchurch can regard it as

a present to the people of the

Horowhenua and we love them

for that.”

However, he said he would

there had been a shortfall of

about $20,000 to $30,000, she

said.

Mr Attwood said city council

Former Christchurch woman

Mary Russell bought Santa in

2001 to save him from being

She recently moved to

community.

Mr Reekers said it was early

interested in getting Santa

possible.

“To us he’s Christchurch history.”

Murray Watson who used to

work at Hay’s and Farmers said

he organised for Santa to go up

each Christmas for 20 years. It

would involve two trucks and a

He said Santa would have

been built in the early 60s, before

Hay’s merged with Farmers

In Brief

MISSPELLED SIGN

A contracting company will

replace a city council street sign

for free after it made a spelling

mistake. The misspelled sign

points out one of the four avenues

surrounding the central city. It

reads Moorehouse Ave, rather

than Moorhouse Ave. A city

council spokeswoman said it

acknowledged a spelling mistake

was made on the sign, which is

at the avenue’s intersection with

Pilgrim Pl. “We are currently

sourcing a new sign and this will

be installed as soon as possible.”

She said the contractor will be

replacing the sign for free.

OIL EXPLORATION OPPOSED

Environment Canterbury has

joined the Christchurch, Auckland

and Dunedin city councils in

opposing deep sea oil and gas

exploration off the Canterbury

coast. Regional councillors voted

10-2 to submit in opposition

to the Government’s proposal

to open more than a quarter of

a million square kilometres of

seabed along New Zealand’s east

coast, including Canterbury, to oil

companies.

REST HOME REBUILD WANTED

The owners of a large retirement

village in Papanui want to

completely rebuild the facility.

Windermere Rest Home was

made up of a care home and villas,

but was badly damaged in the

September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes. The care home

was later demolished. Oceania

Healthcare Ltd has applied for

resource consent to demolish

the existing villas and rebuild 60

assisted living and premium care

suites, along with 91 independent

living units. A three-day hearing

will take place next month.

Great neighbours

• By Gabrielle Stuart

TOO BIG: This 20m long, 4.9m high wall was

constructed by BP as part of its Edgeware petrol

station extensions. It reflects sunlight straight onto

neighbouring Kazu Kano’s house.

THE OIL company

which sponsored Great

Neighbours Awards

has not proved very

neighbourly.

BP sponsored a national

campaign “Great Neighbour

Awards” last year

designed to encourage

neighbourliness.

But Edgeware residents

say BP is anything but

neighbourly.

When the Edgeware BP

was allowed to expand,

neighbours were told the

effect on them would be

“quite benign” and “less

than minor.”

Now, resident Kazu

Kano’s view from his

deck and study is of a

20m long, almost 5m high

white wall, which reflects

glare from the sun into his

home.

Residents have now accused

the city council of

abandoning them, after

being told nothing could

be done.

They spent more than

six months trying to

fight the expansion, but

it was approved by hearing

commissioner David

Mountfort.

“I do not believe the redevelopment

of the service

station will cause the severity

of effects the neighbours

anticipate and will

The Star

in fact be quite benign,” he

said in his ruling.

But neighbour Rob Hull

said yesterday Mr Mountfort

got it wrong.

They got it wrong, so is

there really no comeback?

Surely council has a responsibility

to mitigate the

effect of the mistake they

made,” he said.

The Star emailed photos

of the new BP structure to

Mr Mountfort yesterday

and asked if he still believed

the effects on neighbours

were “quite benign.”

He did not respond.

– Yeah right

The residents met with representatives

from BP, the city

council and Innes Ward city

councillor Pauline Cotter this

month when the structure went

up.

They asked BP to plant more

trees and to paint the wall a different

colour to reduce the glare.

BP refused.

City council head of building

consenting John Higgins said it

was too late to appeal the decision,

and the city council did

not have any more plans to meet

with BP.

Said Cr Cotter: “BP have come

back and said no, they’re not

David

Mountfort

Pauline

Cotter

going to do anything extra that

the consent conditions did not

require of them, and so that’s

the end of it and there’s nothing

anybody can do now.”

She said there needed to be

changes to the resource consent

process to keep it from favouring

businesses, and “get more

compassion in the system.”

Mr Hull said that was not

good enough.

“What I’d like to hear from Lianne

Dalziel and Pauline is why

didn’t you defend our residential

amenity?” he said.

The council should have

protected us and opposed the

application but they didn’t,

they recommended that it went

ahead,so once they’ve done that

it’s almost a done deal.”

A city council spokeswoman

said they were not able to get

hold of Mayor Dalziel to respond

to questions from The Star.

BIG BOX: Established trees which used to line the fence

were ripped out to make way for the new BP building, as part

of the expansion.

Cr Cotter said she had tried

to advocate for the residents

and had organised meetings for

them, but she did not believe

there was anything more she

could have done.

The resource consent hearing

was kept limited, so while 37

neighbours signed a petition

opposing the submission, only

two were able to speak at the

hearings.

They also had limited funds,

so while BP was able to bring

in a team of lawyers and expert

witnesses, the residents could

not afford to.

BP spokeswoman Shelley

Brady said it had talked to

neighbours about what colour

to paint a fence, and offered to

donate leftover gravel to them.

“BP has gone above and

beyond the consent requirements

in order to support the

numerous ad hoc requests that

we continue to receive from

neighbours,” she said.

When asked if she agreed BP

had been a bad neighbour in this

case, she said:

“We are committed to continuing

our ongoing conversations

with neighbours and the community

and we will continue to

work with them wherever we

can reasonably do so.”

Mr Hull responded: “Yeah

that’s not right at all, they’ve

been terrible. But that’s what we

expected, our main bitch is with

the council.”

Is Hendo back

in Sol Square?

•From page 1

The main block, at 179 Tuam

St, is on a 2157 sq m site and was

originally insured for just under

$14 million.

Sol Square was originally

developed by Mr Henderson as a

hospitality, retail and accommodation

precinct in the early 2000s,

becoming one of the city’s most

popular night spots.

In 2009 and 2010 several

companies connected with Mr

Henderson were put into liquidation

and six of his Sol Square bars

were sold by receivers.

Mr Henderson also declared

bankruptcy in 2010.

City councillor Jamie Gough

said he hadn’t heard of the sale

and was surprised by the news.

However, he wouldn’t have any

concerns about Mr Henderson

developing the sites in spite of the

past troubles.

“I’m certainly a believer in

giving people second chances, I

think some of the most successful

people in the world have had their

ups and downs,” he said.

“For various reasons [the

development] didn’t work out but

I don’t think anyone could have

said in hindsight that his overall

concept and visions weren’t quite

impressive.”

Tsunami fear: We’ll help ourselves

• By Gabrielle Stuart

PEOPLE LIVING near the beach

are taking tsunami evacuation

plans into their own hands

because of inaction from Civil

Defence, they say.

They are afraid hundreds

could die trying to evacuate

along the Marine Parade area if

another big earthquake

strikes.

Many people

were stuck in

vehicles queuing

to get out of areas

Susie Bragg

from Southshore

to Waimairi Beach

for more than an

hour after the tsunami warning

sirens were activated at about

2am, two hours after last week’s

7.8 magnitude quake.

They say there was very little

traffic control, with people

driving on the wrong side of the

roads and blocking roundabouts.

Residents groups say they have

been trying to contact Civil Defence

since the quake to get more

information about future evacuation

processes, but they have

not been able to get through.

Community Security Group

of New Brighton organiser Susie

PROACTIVE: Residents living from Southshore to Waimairi

Beach are developing their own evacuation plans.

Bragg said she believed hundreds

would die if a plan was not put in

place before a tsunami hit.

“It’s a matter of survival,” she

said.

She has planned a meeting to

discuss how they can organise

residents themselves if a tsunami

hits.

That could include developing

evacuation routes for each street,

having people drive down both

sides of some exit roads, and

looking at moving road cones

and blocks at road works.

Canterbury Civil Defence

Emergency Management group

controller Neville Reilly did

not return calls from The Star

this week. He said last week he

was too busy co-ordinating the

emergency response in North

Canterbury to answer questions.

Acting Minister of Civil

Defence Gerry Brownlee said

the response as a whole would

be reviewed, but at this stage the

focus remained on the immediate

response and recovery.

The Star asked what assurance

he could give coastal Christchurch

residents he had done all he

could as Acting Minister of Civil

Defence to make sure they were

safe if a tsunami was triggered.

He said there had been issues

around the tsunami warnings,

but he had nothing more to “add

on this front.”

South Brighton Residents’ Association

chairman Hugo Kristinsson

said he had tried to get

information from Civil Defence

about the evacuation, but had

not heard back.

There is a lot of frustration

and people are nervous. It’s absolutely

critical for the community

to be prepared,” he said.

He said the failed evacuation

had been a reminder to people

that they needed to leave straight

away if they felt a long and strong

earthquake.

But he said they needed to

know who to go to for information

in an emergency, where and

how far inland they needed to

go, and what they needed to have

packed and prepared.

“People are not very impressed

with council. In my opinion,

they have an opportunity to

actually reach out to communities

because this is our council

after all and they have people on

wages to serve the community.

We are volunteers and we can

only do so much,” he said.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East said he was

concerned about the safety of

residents.

“If there was to be a wave of

some size arriving on our coastline,

yes, I would have serious

concerns about our ability to

evacuate quickly.”

He said reviewing the situation

and getting information to

residents was a high priority for

council, but it had been difficult

when Civil Defence staff were

still busy with the immediate

disaster response. He expected

to see action on the issue within

a month.

‘Dangerous’ work company

on the brink of liquidation

• By Tom Doudney

THE engineering company at

the centre of allegations of “sub

standard” and “dangerous”

work on seven city buildings

must pay more than $30,000

to creditors today to avoid

liquidation.

The company is being investigated

by the city council which

has received sworn affidavits

from two former employees of

the company.

The former employees claim

that, as unqualified welders,

they were asked to do work

beyond their expertise, and say

they are concerned about the

safety and standard of work

which they carried out or were

aware of.

One said he was concerned

about the possibility of another

disaster like when the CTV

building collapsed in the February

2011 earthquake.

Now The Star can reveal the

company is the subject of a liquidation

application. At its last

hearing in the High Court at

Christchurch, a judge ordered

the company to pay $30,914.20

by today.

However, The Star understands

that at least two other

creditors have signalled they

may seek to join the liquidation

application. Together, they are

claiming more than $100,000.

The company’s managing

director is also due in court

on Tuesday over unrelated

allegations that he attempted to

drive a vehicle into a woman.

He has been charged with

dangerous driving and assault

with a blunt instrument. He

has pleaded not guilty to both

charges.

The allegations of sub

standard work listed in the

affidavits include reo bars in

basement walls bent without

knowledge of correct protocols

for ensuring they retain

structural strength; welding

work by unqualified welders on

base isolator plates, important

for how the building performs

in an earthquake; and not

enough head restraints installed

in a building’s walls, among

other allegations.

City council general manager

consenting and compliance

Leonie Rae refused to answer

questions from The Star

yesterday about what stage the

investigation was at, including

how many site visits had been

completed.

She said the city council

would provide a full response

once the investigation was

completed.

Rare birth at Willowbank

THERE’S ONLY a

handful of siamangs

in Australasia and

Willowbank Wildlife

Reserve has increased

that number by one.

The reserve

welcomed a newborn

gibbon to mother Sue

and father Bujang on

Sunday – the baby

siamang is yet to be

named.

There is about 30

siamang gibbons

in captivity in

Australasia.

Bujang is more

than 42-years-old

and Willowbank was

unsure if he would have the ability

to breed.

It was difficult for staff to

confirm if Sue was pregnant, but

they had an idea she was.

Staff didn’t know when she was

due to give birth so they fitted

out the siamang’s quarters in

preparation.

“Special soft mats were placed

on the floor within the den, in

anticipation for the birth – and

as protection for the baby from a

fall,” a reserve spokesperson said.

“Thankfully, the birth went well,

and mother and baby are happy

The Star

and healthy.”

The baby hasn’t yet been

identified as male or female.

The Siamang will be kept

with its mother and father at

Willowbank.

Willowbank is part of an

organised conservation breeding

programme administered by the

Zoo Aquarium Association.

Willowbank is one of the only

places in New Zealand to receive

a breeding recommendation

because of Bujang’s genetics.

The other breeding pair is at

Auckland Zoo, with Sue and

Bujang’s son Intan, now aged 7,

and his mate Kira.

Bid to boost whitebait survival

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE BANKS of the Avon and

Heathcote Rivers have become

the South Island’s largest

recorded spawning area for a

species of whitebait.

Studies on the spawning sites

of inanga whitebait have found

the number had increased

remarkably since the February

2011 earthquake.

However, a lot of the eggs in

those areas did not survive.

Canterbury University’s

Shane Orchard has been studying

whether the February 2011

earthquake changed where

inanga were spawning as part of

his resilient shorelines work.

He said the number of sites in

the Avon had doubled, while in

the Heathcote, it had tripled.

“Looking at the combined

bigger picture, the combined

area of spawning habitat is the

biggest site in the South Island.”

He said the next step was to try

and figure out why that was the

case, and how they could protect

the eggs that were laid there.

His work included installing

straw bales along parts of the

waterways that eggs were not

found because of either steep

banks, or a degraded habitat.

EOS Ecology’s Whaka Inaka

programme followed that work

by laying about 200 bales along

those sites to act as spawning

habitat.

He said eggs were found in

many of the bales, however, that

did not mean those sites were

suitable for spawning long-term.

He said his team, the city

council, Environment Canterbury

and community groups

had to work together to see what

they could do to improve this,

and what sites would be workable.

“We’ve got some really good

results for the overall situation,

not just a shift from the quakes

but there’s expansion.”

The city council is looking to

improve the habitat of a section

of the Heathcote by planting the

riparian margins with appropriate

vegetation, but it still needed

to be progressed.

Whaka Inaka project lead

Shelley McMurtrie said eggs

were laid in the straw bales

where the banks were either

too steep or the vegetation was

trimmed too much.

Although the quality of both

rivers was poor, she said if nothing

was done, whitebait could

stop spawning in the rivers at

all.

“Improving water quality is

a long term thing, we can’t afford

to wait for water quality to

improve because we could have

lost the fish by then.”

Bypass likely

to ease

congestion

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HEAVY CONGESTION in the

Hornby business area could be

mitigated with a $15 million plan

for a new bypass to be constructed

through Waterloo Business Park.

But it could come at a cost of

Pound Rd residents putting up

with an increase of heavy vehicles

driving past their homes daily.

Plans are under way for the

NZ Transport Agency to upgrade

the intersection at Barters Rd,

Pound Rd and Main South Rd to

cater for increased traffic from

Waterloo Business Park.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

community board chairman Mike

Mora said while the intersection

would ease congestion, the new

bypass would send trucks along

Pound Rd.

But Pound Rd residents said it

is hard to say how they will be affected

by the bypass.

Resident and Yaldhurst Residents’

Association chairwoman

Sara Harnett said there will definitely

be more noise.

“I hope there are not too many

big trucks going there but there is

certainly potential,” she said.

Viewpoint

Review likely to be extensive

ALMOST TWO weeks

on from the November 14

earthquake, residents in affected

communities are coming to

terms with their new normal.

Aftershocks and dangerous

road conditions have meant

Kaikoura remains isolated

but emergency supplies are

continuing to make their way to

those who need them the most.

Getting water, food and

sewerage facilities to those in

damaged communities has been

a challenging task and I’m proud

of the work undertaken by Civil

Defence and the New Zealand

Defence Force.

The help provided by the

American, Canadian and

Australian navies – in Auckland

for the Royal New Zealand

Navy’s 75 th Anniversary – was a

poignant example of the bonds

our nation has forged with

international partners.

Since the magnitude 7.8

earthquake, the Government

has made a number of

services available to people

and businesses affected by the

disaster.

The wage subsidy package

to help small businesses

has now been expanded to

include businesses of all sizes

in Kaikoura, Cheviot, Waiau,

Gerry Brownlee

Rotherham, Mt Lyford and

Ward.

KiwiSaver supervisors have

agreed with the Government’s

request to expedite applications

for early withdrawal for

earthquake-related hardship.

The 0800 779 997 Government

Helpline has been activated

to provide a one-stop source

of information on assistance

services. There is also a Primary

Industry support package,

which includes $4 million for

Mayoral Disaster Rural Relief

funds.

As a Christchurch resident

and MP, the destruction

caused by the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes weighs heavy on

my mind.

I’m working with officials to

ensure the process of inspecting

buildings, particularly those in

Wellington, and reporting the

findings to council is clear.

It’s important to remember

that with continuing aftershocks,

buildings can be

cumulatively damaged. This can

explain some cases where buildings

are initially deemed safe to

later be identified as a risk.

I urge private sector building

owners and tenants to be

mindful of their obligations

under the Health and Safety

At Work Act. There is no room

for complacency as a large

aftershock could strike at any

time.

As Acting Civil Defence

Minister, I’ve been honest about

the aspects of the response

that need improving. The

Government will be reviewing

the Civil Defence response, as

it does after every disaster, and

this review will likely be quite

extensive.

Please be vigilant and take

care of yourselves and those

around you.

Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Readers respond to an

article about long queues

as people evacuated the

New Brighton coastline and

confusion over tsunami

warnings during last week’s

earthquake

Lachlan Marshall – Or if

everyone started evacuating

right when they feel the shaking

like they are supposed to, as the

sirens most likely don’t get set

off for locally generated tsunami,

then everyone would get out in

time, why has no one read the

tsunami risk management plan

on the council website?

Zara Woolfe – We left nearly

an hour before sirens, it was

common sense to really, we had

no issues with traffic or getting

out and there were several other

cars leaving out bridge street as

well at that time. Be prepared . . .

it’s not like we haven’t been given

the information. Have a plan.

Don’t for one minute think you’ll

have your wits about you when

you’re in the midst of a disaster.

Brian Sandle – I must admit

I waited for the sirens. I was

thinking this is a horizontal slip

from the waves getting to me.

I thought a vertical movement

would be required for a big

tsunami. However, a lens effect of

varying depth concentrated a big

The Star

tsunami in Pigeon Bay, I think.

Lyttelton tide gauge took a while

to show water movement.

Brian Sandle – If we should

automatically leave the alarms

should automatically activate.

Who is thinking like me? Why

’TIS THE season for sunshine

and summer fairs and the last

week has delivered both in ample

measure for me.

Neighbourhoods all over

Wigram have been inflating

bouncy castles, getting the

miniature ponies in and revving

up the chocolate wheel as

they come together for great

community events.

Attending fairs, and having a

stall in many cases, is one of the

best bits of being a local member

of Parliament. You get the chance

to have some great chats with

locals and really pick up the vibe

of how people are feeling.

Last weekend at Hoon Hay,

Aidanfield and Addington I

was struck by how much people

valued coming together with

neighbours and friends after a

shaky and difficult week that had

stirred up memories and anxieties

for many of us.

It has not been easy to watch

the images of Kaikoura and what

the people are going through

only a couple of hours up the

road from Christchurch.

At these community fairs I felt

a real sense of camaraderie and

concern for each other that gave

me such hope for our future here

in Christchurch.

For me, our future strength in

Christchurch lies in these neighbourhoods

and communities.

People identifying with and

caring for their local area and the

people who live in that area will

be one of the lasting legacies of

what we have been through over

the last six years. This is what

will give us the strength and the

capacity to deal with whatever

nature throws at us.

People were fizzing with

ideas with ways to make their

neighbourhoods even stronger.

Community gardens, fruit and

vege co-ops, play groups, online

communities, cooking classes,

music groups were all discussed

with me.

What really struck me was

that each of the ideas that were

pitched to me was owned by

the people and group bringing

it up. There was no sense that

“somebody else” should do this;

rather they wanted advice and

support on how they could make

it happen.

I felt a bit like a matchmaker

linking people up with other

like-minded groups and organisations

who can assist them to

make their dreams realities.

I’m looking forward to seeing

some of these dreams become

realities in a neighbourhood near

me very soon.

The quake

Unravelling the scientific quirks

The 7.8 quake was bafflingly complex in

some ways, but simple in others. Science

reporter Jamie Morton delved into the data

to look at what we know so far

Why did the earthquake start

small and get larger?

When the 7.8 magnitude main

shock struck at Culverden at

12.02am, Monday, November 14,

it ripped along a fault segment

some 50km long.

From there, the quake surged

northward, spreading out over

a distance between 150km to

200km, growing more powerful

as it jumped from fault to fault.

South to north, at least

six faults – among them the

Hundalee Fault, the Hope Fault,

the Waipapa Fault and the

Kekerengu Fault – joined the

chain in quick succession.

“When you look at the map

of how much of New Zealand

has ruptured, it’s mind-blowing,

really . . . it’s just incredible,”

GNS Science seismologist

Caroline Holden said. The

largest amount of energy release,

for instance, didn’t occur at the

epicentre but more than 100km

away at Seddon.

“What we are seeing from

very simple modelling is just the

rupture starting to the south

and unzipping all the way to the

north – it just kept piling up as it

travelled.”

It may seem strange that

a quake could get bigger as

it continued, rather than

occurring as a one-off bang

firing out progressively smaller

shockwaves.

But Dr Holden wasn’t at all

surprised.

“To move such a big structure,

you need that little trickle at the

beginning to push it over the

edge, so a big one will actually

get going.”

This wasn’t unusual for New

Zealand.

The 7.1 quake that hit Darfield

in September 2010 began on a

small fault – the Charring Cross

Fault – before pushing on to the

famous Greendale Fault.

“Since we don’t know

quantitatively how close to

SOURCE: GNS SCIENCE

failure major faults are, it is not

impossible for a small fault to

change the surrounding stress

enough to trigger that bigger one

nearby,” Dr Holden said.

Multiple-fault earthquakes

often occur in the upper

crust in continental interiors,

especially in regions where there

were multiple faults bunched

close together, as with the

Marlborough Fault system.

RESEARCH: GNS scientists

collect GPS data after the

quake. PHOTO: GNS SCIENCE

Scientists were now developing

a model for the 7.8 magnitude

sequence, with teams inspecting

on-land fault ruptures and

feeding other data into the

model, which would also help

understand fault stress.

Stress didn’t always increase

stress on the neighbouring faults

and could sometimes ease it – an

effect that obviously wasn’t the

case with this quake.

behind last week’s earthquakes

MOVING ISLANDS: An interferogram generated using data from a Japanese Space Agency

satellite. Each set of rainbow-coloured contours represent 11.5cm of movement. Where the

colored contours are closest together is where the largest changes in land motion are occurring.

Are the different faults part

of a single “super fault”?

One interesting question posed

by Ake Fagerang, an earthquake

scientist at Cardiff University,

was whether the various faults

were all just part of a much larger,

single fault. Dr Fagerang was

intrigued by the variety of fault

types – the quake produced both

strike-slip and thrust faulting –

as well as the number involved.

“A question is whether the

faults represent a mixture of

strike-slip and thrust faults, or a

population of variably obliqueslip

faults; another question is

whether the fault surface traces

are linked to form a large fault at

depth,” he wrote in earth science

magazine EOS.

But Dr Holden said the possibility

of a centralised “superfault”

causing the havoc wasn’t

supported by the evidence gathered

so far. Rather, it was clear

that the quake had been caused

by a combination of individual

crustal faults.

“If there was any component

deep under the surface – so,

where all the faults are branching

from – it would be pretty small,

because we didn’t get the signal

from the ground shaking,” Dr

Holden said.

Satellite images also appeared

to dismiss the theory.

“If there was significant

movement in the interface, it

would have had a signature on

the ground deformation at the

surface – and we don’t seem to

see that, either.

“So, while we can’t rule out

that nothing happened at the

interface, it would have been very

small compared to the action

going on at the surface.”

In spite of its complexity, the

sequence aligned well with scientists’

understanding of tectonic

systems in New Zealand, and the

area where the quake hit hardest

was where much of the upper

crust surface faulting could be

expected.

Why did the quake last so

long?

Dr Fagerang also pointed

out the quake’s long length – a

two-minute rumble, with the

most severe shaking lasting 50

seconds.

He noted the quake slip lasted

longer than the one-minute slip

duration typically considered to

calculate local magnitudes.

This was intriguing, as such

slow propagation was typical of

earthquakes originating from

a relatively shallow subduction

thrust interface, and not faults in

a continental crust.

But Dr Holden said she

hadn’t seen any unusually slow

rupture in her modelling, which

explained most of the quake’s

signal.

When one considered the fault

was rupturing at a speed of 2km

per second, across a length of up

to 200km, there was “nothing

unusual” in the duration, she

said.

Fault ruptures move the country

•From page 18

“With a multiple crustal source

model, supported by geodesy

and strong motion, we are able to

explain the effects of this earthquake

without including any significant

subduction component,”

Dr Holden said.

“It’s worth noting that the

proximity in depth and location

of these crustal faults to the subduction

interface does have an

impact on the subduction area

nonetheless.”

Dr Holden said it would be

unusual if the shaking was small

but long-lasting, something typical

of a low-energy subduction

quake.

How has New Zealand

shifted?

Scientists are still in Marlborough

collecting data, but

GPS stations and satellites have

already revealed dramatic movement

– all which happened in

seconds.

GeoNet uses specialised satellites,

which collect radar data

used to track these land movements

in great detail.

A technique called InSAR (Interferometric

Synthetic Aperture

Radar) draws on radar satellites

CLOSED: A slip on Sate Highway 1 near Kaikoura.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

orbiting around 700km above

Earth to precisely measure the

distance between the ground and

the satellite.

If the ground moves between

two subsequent satellite passes,

due to an earthquake or volcanic

eruption, then the distance between

the ground and the satellite

changes.

Observing these changes in the

position of the land with InSAR

enabled scientists to generate

detailed maps of ground movement,

often with centimetre-level

accuracy.

So far, satellite images had

revealed huge changes in land

movement across the Hope and

Kekerengu faults, as well as several

other faults in the region.

To the east of these faults, the

land went mostly south-west,

while land to the west of these

faults moved mostly north-east.

The satellite images clearly

showed the earthquake was one

of the most complex earthquakes

ever observed – and backed

scientists’ conclusions that the

earthquake ruptured at least

four different faults and probably

more.

The biggest displacements were

seen on the Hope, Hundalee,

Waipapa Bay and Kekerengu

faults – the latter accommodating

up to 10m of slip.

GPS stations on the ground

similarly showed astonishing

shifts.

Cape Campbell, on the northeast

tip of the South Island, was

shunted north north-east by

more than 2m – bringing it that

much closer to the North Island

– and was also pushed up vertically

by almost 1m.

Similarly, Kaikoura had moved

to the north-east by nearly 1m,

and had been lifted upwards by

70cm.

Hanmer Springs, the closest

GPS site to the quake epicentre,

jumped eastward by approximately

50cm.

A key observation was that,

although the earthquake fault

rupture began near Culverden,

by far the largest motions of GPS

sites occurred at Cape Campbell,

supporting the idea that the

quake ruptured north over a

very long distance from where it

started.

And not only did the quake

shift landmasses in the northern

South Island, it also caused

movements across most of the

country.

In the lower North Island, the

east coast shifted west by up to

5cm, while the Wellington and

Kapiti regions were shunted

2-6cm to the north.

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula

were now approximately

2cm further south than they

were the day before the quake.

Some parts of the West Coast

of the South Island have been

shifted eastward by as much

as 1cm, although the northern

North Island and southern South

Island only moved a few millimetres.

Previous surveys had shown

the country was normally moving

by 4cm a year but, rather

than shifting as a whole, tectonic

forces were deforming the land

surface – stretching, slimming

and sliding it southward.

Freight charges

higher after quake

• By Simon Hartley

ROAD FREIGHT charges

between Picton and Christchurch

are averaging about 20 per

cent higher since last week’s

earthquake closed State Highway

1 past Kaikoura, forcing traffic to

use the longer inland route.

Following the multiple

mountain landslips and seabed

upheavals of the 7.8 earthquake,

the alternative, inland road route

to Picton adds an extra two

and a-half hours to what was

a five-hour trip, and an extra

120km.

Both Road Transport Association

NZ and the New Zealand

Trucking Association said when

contacted the majority of road

freighters were charging about 18-

20 per cent more on average for

the extra haulage, based on a per

kilometre rate and weight.

Neither had heard of any operators

“rorting the system’’ with

high charges. Road Transport

Association NZ chief executive

Dennis Robertson said tight competition

meant some operators

were even offering a lower rate to

secure loads.

‘’Mainly it’s just for the extra

time, fuel and staff costs,’’ he said.

While some operators could

be charging a “one-off levy’’, on a

case-by-case basis, such as timesensitive

freight, Mr Robertson

believed the best and most popular

cost modelling was the per

kilometre charge.

Trucking association chief

executive David Boyce understood

that while operators were

still negotiating, the per kilometre

charge was “about 20 per cent’’, to

use the inland route.

Other routes around the

country, including Dunedin to

Christchurch, should not be affected,

he said.

He believed that while the inland

route would have to be used

for many more months, alliances

between ports, KiwiRail and shippers

would in the near future offer

more freight options.

Advice for Kaikoura cafes

• By Matthew Theunissen

DOCUMENT YOUR damage

and remember you don’t have

to accept the first insurance

estimate, Christchurch

restaurants tell their quake-hit

Kaikoura counterparts.

Restaurant owners affected

by the 2011 Christchurch earthquake

travelled to Kaikoura this

week to share their experiences

and offer advice to Kaikoura

hospitality businesses affected

by last week’s magnitude 7.8

earthquake.

The trip was organised by the

Restaurant Association, whose

chief executive Marisa Bidois

was joined by Cafe Valentino

owner Michael Turner and Sam

Crofskey, of C1 Espresso.

Ms Bidois said Kaikoura’s

businesses were eager to ask

questions of people who’d had

the same experience.

The locals just really appreciated

having people there to

speak to who have been through

something similar,” she said.

There is some uncertainty to

be honest and people are worried,

but optimistic. With the

roads being closed people are

pretty concerned about what’s

during what would have been

their busiest time of the year.”

The major topic of the day

was insurance, with many businesses

unsure about what they

were entitled to, or how to go

about making a claim.

“Some of the advice was

around documenting your damage

– taking photos of everything

in the business before you

clean up – because that’s the

way you produce your evidence.

It’s also not necessarily accepting

the first quote that you get

back from any loss adjuster, it’s

letting people know that they

have the right to challenge these

things as well if they’re not

happy with it.”

announced a $7.5 million relief

package for Kaikoura’s small

businesses. – NZ Herald

needed a boost.

She said they chatted to

the Amuri Basin Young

Romano handed out

a bag of All Blacks,

Crusaders and Canterbury

including jerseys, shorts,

t-shirts, singlets and socks.

Mrs Romano said some

of the tops were size 3XL

and a tad too big for the

kids. He also gave out Crusaders

rugby balls, donated

by the team and signed by

Romano.

The families and, most

importantly, the kids were

really stoked and it was

awesome to see their faces

Desperately seeking

Susan 50 years on

• By Bridget Rutherford

A GERMAN woman is

trying to track down a

friend she met 50 years

ago in Europe who she

lost contact with after they

were in a car crash.

Karin Fischer, who lives

near Bonn, is trying to find

Susan Malcolm who she

believes could be living in

Christchurch.

The pair met in 1964

while they were both on

summer vacation in Sant

Antoni de Calonge, Costa

Brava, Spain, while in their

early 20s.

They became good

friends, however, they lost

contact after they crashed

their vehicle while driving

to Germany.

Ms Fischer’s son Patrick

and his wife are spending

two months in Christchurch

and she would like

them to meet. They arrive

on December 20.

“It would be fantastic,

if they could meet maybe

Susan and her family or

at least learn where she is

today,” she said.

OLD FRIENDS: Karin Fischer (black hair) is looking

for Susan Malcolm, who she made friends with in

Europe 50 years ago. ​

Ms Fischer, whose

maiden name was Kretzer,

said she went to Spain in

1964 for summer vacation

where she met Ms Malcolm

who was an au pair

for a French family.

Ms Fischer said Ms Malcolm

was from Christchurch,

but her parents sent

her to live in England to

help forget a boy back home.

She said once the pair

had finished their summer

jobs, they were driving

from Paris to live and work

at Ms Fischer’s German

hometown of Wiesbaden.

However, on the way

there, Ms Malcolm drove

into the path of an oncoming

vehicle and they

crashed, she said.

Ms Fischer said because

it was her car, they told

police she was driving so

she could get insurance

back on the damage. No

one was injured.

After arriving in

Wiesbaden, Ms Malcolm

left and Ms Fischer never

heard from her again.

A year later, Ms Fischer

moved to Paris, where she

met her husband.

Ms Fischer said Ms

Malcolm would be about

73-years-old now.

Game brings real

mysteries back to life

• By Gabrielle Stuart

REAL mysteries

and crimes from

Christchurch’s history are

being brought back to life,

through an “escape room”

puzzle challenge craze.

The escape room games

are a growing trend around

the world, with three

opened in Christchurch

over the past six months.

During the game players

are locked in a room and

have to solve a series of

puzzles or find clues in

order to escape.

Locked In Christchurch

owners Christopher

Dempsey and Veronika

Vobornikova have taken it

one step further, using the

trend to help Cantabrians

discover more about their

own history.

Their first escape room

scenario, which is based by

The Tannery, is based on

the mysterious disappearance

of a man at Taylors

Mistake Beach in the

1800s.

Groups play the role of

detectives and try to find

clues in the room to solve

the case.

Ms Vobornikova said she

had done a lot of reading

about Christchurch history,

and found the case

fascinating.

There are so many

interesting stories here that

most people don’t really

know about,” she said.

The couple opened their

escape room in September,

after more than six months

spent designing and building

the room.

Ms Vobornikova said

they were inspired by their

own experience in an escape

room in Queenstown

last year, and created the

MYSTERY: The disappearance of a man at Taylors

Mistake Beach in the 1800s is part of a game which

players are tasked with solving.

ESCAPE: The Locked

In Christchurch escape

room in Woolston.

room while both working

full-time, herself in traffic

management and her partner

as an engineer.

“We found out there was

nothing like it in Christchurch,

so we went for it. We

knew it was going to be

a big job and it would be

hard, but we were just excited

to create it,” she said.

They are now planning

to open a second room

next year, based on another

local mystery.

She said it had attracted

all kinds of people. The

record time to solve it was

45min, but most people

took about 90min.

The other Christchurch

escape rooms are Crate Escape

on Armagh St, which

is a time travelling scenario

built in a shipping container,

and Escape Artists

Christchurch on Churchill

St, which has three different

themed escape rooms,

with a prison scenario,

a haunted log cabin and

a challenge to save earth

from an asteroid.

They range in price from

about $20-$30 per player.

Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust, PO Box 20262, Christchurch

The 7.8 earthquake had put unprecedented demand on the air rescue service in the region.

The response is very different to that required after the Christchurch eathquakes due to the isolation of the main affected

areas - access is mainly by air.

The crew are dealing with medical emergencies, accidents, search and rescue, as well as transporting hospital patients and critical

medical supplies. Extra crews are on duty and the air rescue service across the region is still continuing.

Silver lining to quakes

WHEN MOTHER Earth

once again unleashed her

fury a short 15km northeast

of Culverden last Monday

morning, I was rattled

awake a far 700km from the

epicentre.

As the 7.8 magnitude

earthquake (or quakes, as it

transpired) shook millions

of people across the country,

our four children slept

soundly.

They were luckily nonethe-wiser

to New Zealand’s

second largest ever (recorded)

earthquake, and

the widespread devastation

put upon the people and

landscape of North Canterbury.

It caused hillsides to

crumble, uplifted the coastal

sea-bed, created ravines,

shattered roads, stole lives

and destroyed homes.

In the time it took for the

rolling and persistent vibrations

to end, I knew this

was not a benign, localised

quake. I had the immediate,

sinking feeling that we

were at the tail-end of yet

another huge, life-changing

event.

I checked my phone and

within minutes a barrage of

information came flooding

in.

The extent of the destruction

was immediately

apparent, and I shuddered

at the thought of what

might have happened had

the quake struck at noon,

rather than midnight. After

an hour of trying to digest

the consequences of yet

another devastating blow to

our region, I could no longer

keep scrolling. I turned

my phone off, and eventually

settled into a weak and

fitful sleep.

When we arrived back

into Christchurch a few

days later, I was happily

surprised at how well our

fair city had held up. Yet the

damage was evident. Not to

our homes or to our infrastructure,

but to the psyche

and well-being of the

people in my community.

In the week after the quake,

I could see frayed nerves,

exhaustion and many close

to the edge.

I guess having lived

through the terror of

quakes in the past, and

knowing full well the devastation

they can cause, it’s no

wonder that people were

feeling uneasy.

However, without

wanting to dwell on what

Mother Earth could next

present, several silver linings

(to me, at least) have

become clear.

There is now no excuse

not to be prepared – people

are taking action. Almost

everyone I know has since

updated their earthquake

kit and revised their emergency

plans.

Also, many seem to

become more conscious of

their mental health and are

making a strong effort to

remain positive, and to seek

help if they need it.

Neighbours are re-connecting,

there is a strong

sense of community, and

openness between strangers

is commonplace as people

check-in to see how others

are faring.

This is a good thing. Of

course, I can only speak for

myself, but it feels as if this

crazy, topsy-turvy space

in time has been somewhat

accepted as our “new

norm”, and considering all

that has happened since

September 2010, I believe

that the people of Christchurch

are faring incredibly

well.

But this hasn’t happened

overnight. It’s been six,

long years of offering and

receiving collective support

and encouragement from

fellow Cantabrians. It’s been

a team effort.

And from what I have

seen, the North Canterbury

quake has reinforced the local

community spirit, which

now seems stronger than

ever. The support offered by

so many Christchurch-ians

has been heart-warming,

and is testament to how

empathetic, as well as

pragmatic, so many have

become.

In spite of living at the

coal-face and mercy of such

an unpredictable earthquake

schedule, I feel that

we are a strong, resourceful

city and we can be proud

of how far we have come.

I’m proud to be bringing up

my children in such good

company.

To that end, kia kaha!

to those throughout the

country who have borne

the brunt of this particular

shake.

There’s no doubting the

long road ahead, but know

that you have the support of

so many here who can, and

will, help you get through

this. Keep the community

spirit strong, and focus on

the future. We are with you

all the way.

•Remember, if you are

not all right, you are not

alone. If you are experiencing

difficulty with

coping or feel like you

need to talk, call the

Directions

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

Gardening

A water feature

has many benefits

A WATER feature in the

garden gives a different

dimension and adds value

to your home.

Apart from it having a

cooling effect that is soothing

for the soul, the sound

of gurgling water has a

meditative, relaxing quality

about it.

Water can enhance any

garden and when used

effectively, has the power

to attract the maximum

attention compared to any

other garden feature.

In smaller gardens where

space is a constraint, water

is best used in conjunction

with a sculptured feature

or a fountain, or a little

rock garden which could

easily be the focal point

of your little stretch of

paradise.

If you do happen to own

a bigger garden, a free

flowing pond could work

wonders. There is a lot you

can play around with, in

terms of plant and marine

life that can add to its

visual appeal.

The added advantage

being, fish can get rid of

the mosquito menace. To

increase the darkness or

depth of the colour of water,

you can dramatise the

effect by using dark, large

SOOTHING: Flowing water has a

relaxing sound.

EFFECT: Where space is

tight water is best used

in a fountain.

leafed evergreens.

The shape and style of

your water feature will

be dictated largely by the

site itself and whether you

want to just get wet and

play with the family or just

add aesthetic appeal to

your home.

Style will depend on the

architecture of your house,

the shape and contours of

the site and the character

and dominance of the

surrounding landscape.

Simple shapes are usually

the best for garden ponds.

They generally look best,

cost the least to construct

and are the easiest to

maintain. If you are unsure

about the shape or size,

consider consulting a good

landscape designer or

landscape architect.

The best way to decide

on construction materials

is to discuss their various

merits with experts in

hydraulics, pool contractors

and friends with

existing pools. Initial cost,

ongoing maintenance and

visual appeal should all be

considered.

Once you’ve decided on

the kind of water feature

you want, you may need to

decide whether the water

is flowing or static.

In a pond it’s easy to

achieve moving water on a

small scale with a low voltage

water pump.

Don’t forget to take into

account the safety factor

for kids. Another important

factor you should

take into consideration is

the ease of cleaning and

general maintenance. If in

doubt, keep it simple.

A shallow sheet of

reflecting water can be as

stylish and far less work

to keep looking good.

Shallow water and dark

colours are the key to

good reflections. Whatever

its size or style, a water

feature certainly makes

the garden very attractive,

adding elements of beauty,

sound and reflection to the

landscape.

Gardening Guide

8 Golden Rules for Watering

To prevent your plants hanging their

heads in summer, they need plenty of

water. But how much, how often, water

from above or below? Here you will

find some smart and helpful facts to

efficiently water your plants.

Keep evenly moist - Most plants depend on

even moisture. However, slight drying out

before watering promotes root growth of the

plants.

Water seldom but thoroughly - In the flower

bed, one to two watering sessions per week

is usually sufficient: better to water more

seldom with plenty of water than little

quantities of water often.

Water early in the evening or early in the

morning - When you water early evening/

morning less water evaporates and the

plants can sufficiently supply themselves

with water.

Keep leaves dry - Wet leaves at night

become diseased leaves. Leaves that are

watered in the sun develop slight burn

marks. Water the roots of the plants rather

than the foliage.

Give the right water quantity - Water must

sufficiently reach the roots. Too little water

quantities often only cover the upper soil

centimetres. This also is essential for edible

plants which are particularly dependent

upon evenly moist soil up until and at

harvest time.

Water with a target but distribute - Water

needs a moment to seep into the soil. Water

each plant lightly then return to it once

the water has soaked in. This prevents

unnecessary wastage. Always watering at

only one root point leads to one-sided root

growth. Therefore, always water around the

plants root ball.

Irrigate in a way that saves water - Water as

much as necessary and as little as possible.

This is simplified with an automatic

irrigation system with moisture sensor – in

the bed, on the balcony and on the lawn.

Use quality, clay-rich soil - Soil which is

rich in clay minerals has better expanding

properties and can therefore hold water

better and in a more even way. In wet

summers and in winter, ensure water

drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Waterlogging suppresses the breathing air of

the roots out of the soil.

Gardening Advice

QUESTION

I am getting married late April next year, and rather than buying

bouquets from a florist, family and friends are going to grow flowers

for me. What types of flowers and plants can they plant which will

be ready to bloom in April, and look colourful in vases?

Congratulations!

Today’s winning question

came from Fiona Harney

ANSWER

Because of the unpredictable nature of our weather and

its impact on the growth and flowering of plants, we would

suggest having a plan B for your wedding flowers just in

case! However, below is a list of plants that, given normal

growing conditions, will provide masses of flowers for your

wedding next autumn;

Perennials (should be in the ground now or planted very

soon): colchicum speciosum, gypsophila ‘bristol fairy’,

helianthus ‘autumn glory’, helianthus ‘golden pyramid’,

lobelia ‘queen victoria’, rudbeckia speciosa, solidago

‘golden wings’, and tuberoses.

Shrubs that are fast growing and will flower early in

their life i.e. this coming autumn: abutilons, buddleias,

camellia, sasasanquas, dichroa versicolour, euryops

pectinatus, hydrangea ‘paniculata’, hydrangea

‘quercifolia’, indigofera ‘decora’, lagerstroemia indica, lavatera

species, lippia citriodora, mandevilla laxa (climber) and stephanotis floribunda (climber)

It is worth noting that the majority of the plants listed above have white flowers and many are

scented, however, there are also some yellow and blue flowering plants.

To give your plants the best start, ensure you prepare the soil well before planting. Add in plenty

of compost and combine well with existing soil or use Daltons Premium Garden Mix or Daltons

Premium Flower Bed Mix.

All the best with the preparation of your wedding.

Arsenal of artisans in Greytown

• By Mike Yardley

DROP-DEAD gorgeous

Greytown is like the Arrowtown

of the north – with the added

distinction of being the only

New Zealand town with a fully

complete main street of original

Victorian buildings.

Greytown’s arsenal of artisans is

headlined by Schoc Chocolate, a

runaway success story since it was

established in 2002.

Founder and owner, Murray

Langham, continues to be showered

with accolades for his delectable

morsels, which tend to be more

savoury than sweet. Schoc are not

chocolate makers, but chocolatiers,

using the base product to dream

up knock-out taste sensations

like lime chilli chocolate, salted

caramel and lavender, apricot and

rosemary (Murray’s favourite) and

curry and poppadums’ and pink

peppercorn.

A lunch break beckoned at the

recently-opened 2 Short Whites

Café. Under the command of

larger-than-life sisters, Nicky and

Sue, 2 Short Whites is all about

local, seasonal good honest food.

Everything is made fresh – aside

from Watties tomato sauce,

because as Nicky says: “You can’t

beat it.” I ordered slow-cooked

lamb for lunch, which was melt-

in-your-mouth divine.

Also on the main street, Bar

Salute enjoys a fiendish following,

specialising in gourmet pizza, tapas,

hearty servings of beef and lamb,

with a cooking school to boot. If

you have a soft-spot for top-notch

artisan pastries and breads, produced

in true French fashion, don’t

miss The French Baker.

Lording over the heart of town,

the White Swan is a charming

creamy-coloured country pub,

which began life in Lower Hutt as

a railway building. Cut in half and

teleported to Greytown in 2002,

one of the pieces slipped off the

transport truck, nearly hurtling

into the oblivion of the Rimutaka

Gorge. Mercifully, it didn’t.

This main street landmark

boasts nine elegant guest rooms,

thoughtfully furnished in period

themes. Boasting a magnificent

restaurant and bar, opening up

onto the veranda, new manager,

Dale Keith has overhauled the

menu, revving up the White

Swan’s culinary credentials.

More grazing awaited me at

James Cameron’s Forest Food

Organics. Virtually everything in

this organic plant-based store is

cultivated from the family farm

in South Wairarapa. Shelves are

lined with a cornucopia of goods,

from walnut oil and gluten-free

flours to Manuka honey and

organic yogurt.

I paid to a visit to Oggi

of Deruta, Umbria under

exceptionally beautiful pieces,

blending traditional Italian design

Experience Guangzhou – the city

DINER’S DELIGHT: A restaurant in

Guangzhou typifies the city’s focus

on gardens and greenery.

PHOTO: DALWYN SINCLAIR

Kate Preece gets a taste of Asia with

an overnight stay in China’s third

largest city

SHADES OF pink flowers

cascade over walkways, trees

drip with red lanterns, and not a

crowd can be seen.

Believe it or not, this was my

first impression of China’s third

largest city – Guangzhou – the

City of Flowers and the City of

Goats.

In January, the annual flower

fair transforms the streets for

the three days leading up to New

Year’s Eve. It is a traditional time

to buy flowers, and have luck

bestowed on your family for doing

so.

Come March, the tropical

kapok flower – the official flower

of the city – punctuates the old

part of town and local parks with

bright red stars, hence the City of

Flowers. But goats?

Some 2000 years ago, a terrible

famine struck the area.

The villagers prayed and

prayed, as the conditions

continued to worsen. Finally,

their dedication to the gods was

rewarded by the appearance of

five celestial women, each riding

a goat and presenting an ear of

corn.

The blessing not only ended

the famine, but has protected the

city from natural disasters ever

since, as our English-speaking

guide concludes.

Food is another important

part of Chinese culture – as is

tea, with the older generation

still spending much of their day

sipping away at teahouses.

Meals start with soup, and

it’s common to learn most of

what you are enjoying has some

positive effect on digestion, or –

skin.

Hot corn juice can be served,

too, and you can count on vast

Dumplings, dim sum and fried

of flowers, goats and dim sum

To walk off the indulgence, a

pedestrian mall is just the ticket.

Beijing Rd, “the street of timehonoured

shops”, opened in

December 2013. Here you will

find the fake Gucci handbags,

“Abidas” shoes, and so on.

Men on the street, with

laminated cards showing Rolex

watches and Louis Vuitton bags,

will stick to prospective buyers

like glue. Great department stores

lead off this area, providing a

quieter, higher-quality shopping

experience.

For a bird’s-eye view of the city,

the 600m high Canton Tower

includes a revolving restaurant.

From the 106th-floor you can

enjoy Mediterranean, western

and Chinese fare, seated 422.8m

above the ground.

We only scratched the service

of what this surprisingly pretty

city has to offer. As the gateway

to 108 international destinations,

Guangzhou provides an interesting

cultural experience en route

to Europe, or the starting point

for a full Asian buffet.

JUST DESSERTS: Don’t skimp

on the final course. This

coconut tower was a favourite.

ON HIGH: The Canton Tower

offers a sky drop, bubble tram,

Fashion

Chance meeting leads to New York show

• By Annabelle Dick

ATTENDING A cousin’s birthday

party, as a 14-year-old, has led Jayde

Vivian to an invitation to take part

in one of the world’s most coveted

fashion events.

Southbridge teenager Jayde, now

16, has been hand-picked to walk in

several New York Fashion Week shows

in February.

She’s only been modelling for two

years and never considered it until a

chance encounter at the party.

“THere was a girl from NZ Models &

Talent at my cousin’s birthday and she

came up to me and we got talking and

she said I should model. She gave me

the director’s card and it just kicked off

from there,” she said.

Now the Ellesmere College student

will walk for the world’s leading and

emerging designers like Vera Wang,

alongside exclusive models such as

Gigi Hadid.

She’s one of two Canterbury

teenagers to be picked. The Star

reported last month 20-year-old Jaime

Spencer will also walk in NYFW.

THe pair are two of three New

Zealand models who were chosen for

the opportunity through the Ozlink

Fashion Programme.

Said Jayde: “I can’t really believe it,

it will only feel real once I’m in New

York. I feel so privileged.”

THe pair will spend 10 days in

New York taking part in the major

international Amit Singh Chahaun

show, two boutique shows and two

realway shows.

THey’ll also get a city and studio

photo shoot with a professional

fashion photographer.

“Going from little old Southbridge to

New York is insane. If I got scouted it

would be incredible,” she said.

THis will be the first time she’s

travelled further than Australia, and

she says her parents aren’t too worried

to let her travel abroad in spite of her

age.

“THey’re really excited for me,

they’ve been so supportive,” Jayde said.

While preparing for the New York

events, the year 12 student is also just

trying to get through schooling and

finish her exams.

“It’s been a wee bit tough but you’ve

just got to prioritise,” she said.

Jayde plans on studying business

after leaving school.

However, the pair both need to raise

funds before committing to the trip.

THe girls will be in New York from

February 9 to February 22.

it to fashion week by donating

THE MALTWORKS VILLAS

New villas

offer lifestyle

and financial

benefits

The Maltworks Villas residential

complex being constructed on the former

Maltworks site in Heathcote Valley is

designed for people in the over-55 age

group that enjoy an active lifestyle and

want to live in a place where natural beauty

defines their surroundings.

Located at 66 Port Hills Road, the

Maltworks Villas will not only have views

of the Port Hills, but will also have the

additional benefits of the micro-climate

environment of the valley.

Developed by PLC Group, the complex

will comprise 65 villas in duplex or terraced

housing styles.

There are 11 plans available in different

sizes, with two- or three-bedroom and

one- or two-bathroom units being offered.

The advantage of the larger sizes is that

purchasers will be able to bring more of

their existing belongings to their new

home, rather than having to dispose of

them.

Construction is linear, with doubleglazed

windows and Colorsteel roofing

with solar panels to reduce the cost of

power for residents. Villas will have a

single or double garage, depending on

the size, while the common areas of the

complex will be attractively landscaped and

maintained by a caretaker.

A key advantage for purchasers of

villas at the Maltworks development is

that ownership is a freehold unit title,

rather than a licence to occupy. This will

allow owners to benefit from the growth

in capital value of their unit, rather than

having limited access to participate in

increased value, as is the case with the

licence to occupy model.

PLC Groups has been operating for

15 years and has developed three over

55/60 lifestyle villages based on the

freehold unit title model. The Maltworks

Villas are designed to create a community

environment, where people of similar

interests can enjoy

companionship and

share activities, with

the well-appointed

clubhouse offering

facilities for socialising

and special events.

A store and café are

to be built alongside

the village, while

a wide range of

recreational facilities

in close proximity to

Maltworks Villas offer

plenty of opportunities

for enjoying social and

leisure activities.

Ferrymead, with

its multitude of retail

and commercial

Under offer

businesses, is a short drive away, the

Eastgate shopping centre is approximately

12 minutes’ drive away, and Lyttelton

township and harbour are also within easy

reach through the tunnel.

There is a bus stop located 100 metres

from the entrance to the village, with buses

running to and from the city centre on a

regular basis.

Fourteen of the villas are under offer

with earthworks currently underway

and construction of the first lot of villas

expected to be completed early in the

New Year.

Those wanting more

information on Maltworks Villas

should contact Michelle Tait,

ASIAN GARDEN HOSPITALITY

The Star

Bringing

Asian Cuisine

‘Down Under’

Christchurch is blessed

with a host of wonderful Thai

and Asian restaurants, giving

us the chance to experience

first-class cuisine in the heart

of Canterbury. For cheerful

and modern we have Thai

Talay and Thai Temple with

their extensive Vietnamese

and Thai menus, and for

an experience where taste,

quality and style combine

for a very special dining

experience, there’s Buddha

Stix in Riccarton, if you enjoy

Asian street food try Le Xom

in Sumner.

At all four restaurants,

the focus is on food that is

authentically Asian, that

genuinely gives diners a taste

of what they could expect if

they travelled further afield.

Now it’s possible to recreate

those flavours at home

without travelling to exotic

locations. The Asian Garden

Cooking School in Harewood

gives you the chance to

experience healthy, fresh,

delicious and hands on Asian

cooking under the watchful

eye of their experienced Thai

chefs.

The school provides a

fun, interactive cookery

experience that begins

with picking fresh, largely

organic ingredients such

as lemongrass, galangal,

kaffir lime and chillies

from their garden. After a

demonstration, the group

gets to put into practise what

they have learned and the

session ends with the chance

to enjoy the meals they have

created over a wine or beer

and enjoying one another’s

company. And if, after all that,

you’ve loved the taste you’ve

created but don’t have time or

access to the same ingredients

at home, their in-house store

stocks the essentials so you

can make the same meals in

the comfort of your own

kitchen.

It’s a great teambuilding

alternative, an

option for hens’ nights

or just a fun family

event. They will soon be

running night classes and

their superb facilities are

perfect for guest chefs to

demonstrate other cuisine

too. Conveniently close to

the airport in case you want

to hop on a plane to Thailand

straight from the class, the

Asian Cooking School is

happy to accommodate

groups’ requirements without

compromising taste, to

take their healthy brand of

cookery into the community,

and above all, provide a fun,

group experience that brings

a taste of Asia ‘down under.’

Find them at 7 Whitchurch

Place in Harewood or

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.

Theatre/Arts

Gags galore in play within a play

Noises Off

Written by Michael Frayn

Directed by Ravil Atlas

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

Slamming doors, crumbling

relationships and a troubling

plate of sardines all make

for comedy chaos in the

Canterbury Repertory Theatre’s

latest show.

A production for me is always

a bold success if it has managed

to give the audience a good

hearty chuckle.

And in this case, Canterbury

director Ravil Atlas’s version

of Michael Frayn’s famous play

Noises Off is no exception, with

a talented cast making the audience

roar with laughter.

Noises Off is a play within a

play, showcasing a behind-thescenes

look at a rookie theatre

group attempting to pull off a

fictional, farcical production of

Nothing On.

It’s a quick-witted show, broken

into three acts – the disastrous

dress rehearsal, backstage

during a midweek matinee and

on-stage on closing night.

Act one was a brewing storm

which revealed the maze of

relationships within a cast on

JOYFUL SHOW: Miriam van Voorthuizen (left) as Brooke

Ashton, Julian Anderson as Llyod Dallas and Emma Price as

Poppy Norton-Taylor in the Canterbury Repertory Theatre’s

latest production Noises Off. ​

the brink of collapse. Forgotten

lines and incorrect cues all

seemed to revolve around

sardines getting taken on and

off the stage.

The whole cast does a stellar

job of foreshadowing what will

be a tragic live show within the

production, and every performer

added fire to the hilariously

diabolical, fictional outfit.

Act two – my favourite – is

when all hell breaks loose back

stage during the live fictional

performance. Shoelaces tied

together, an outbreak of fighting

and sardines getting poured

down one performer’s top is just

the tip of the iceberg.

The show is extremely lovable

and highly-relatable for two reasons:

Most people can relate to

having either been sucked into

putting on an exceedingly amateur

production or gone to see

one. The other reason is there

is something familiar about

being on the outside watching

human nature take its toll in a

disastrous situation.

Actor Miriam van

Voorthuizen’s role is a critical

example of both cases. Her

hilarious performance as

Brooke Ashton, who speaks

with no flow and carries on

with the show unable to adapt

to change, is acting we’re all

familiar with.

Terry McCartan did a

wonderful job playing the

overworked, tired stage

manager Tim Allgood.

There was something about

him catching a flying cactus

and kicking the hell out of

a broken door in a bid to fix

it that stuck out as hilarious

highlights for me.

It puts a smile on my face just

thinking about all the chaotic

drama.

And at the end of it all, does

the show go on? You’ll have to

go along to find out.

•Noises Off will run at

Elmwood Auditorium

until December 3. To

Inch has home advantage in world champs

• By Gordon Findlater

BLACKJACKS and Canterbury

Bowling Club player Katelyn

Inch will get her first taste of

bowls’ biggest stage next week.

The 21-year-old will compete

in the World Bowls Championships

in Christchurch, which

begins on Tuesday across three

venues – Burnside, Papanui and

Fendalton bowling clubs.

She was first introduced to the

sport by her family in Oxford in

2009. She has been in camp with

the Blackjacks team since last

week and is going through final

preparations before representing

New Zealand in both the

women’s fours and triples.

“I’m so excited; it’s going to be

great having family and friends

here. I’m also familiar with the

greens and surroundings, so it

gives me a lot of confidence,”

said Inch.

Earlier this month, she was

part of the Blackjacks team

that finished fifth at the Bowls

Premier League – a competition

which attracts some of the biggest

crowds seen in the sport as

well as a A$100,000 prize pool.

BIG STAGE: Katelyn Inch

made her Blackjacks debut

in Christchurch 12 months

ago at the Asia Pacific

Championships. ​

“I was pretty nervous going

into it, but it gave me so much

confidence knowing I can play in

front of that kind of crowd and

knowing I can perform,” said

Inch.

It’s a different story for Blackjacks

coach Dave Edwards who

will be looking to sign off in

style.

Finding a coach in New

Zealand that has been at the

helm of a national side longer

than Edwards has been with

the Blackjacks would be a

difficult task. After 10 years in

the job he will hand over the

reins following

next week’s

tournament.

“I think that

the timing is

right for me to

move one. It’s

time for a fresh

voice and fresh

ideas. It is going

Dave Edwards

to be a sentimental last event and

it is going to be sad in that respect,

but I’m hoping to go out in

a blaze of glory,” said Edwards.

Edwards will move to Brisbane

following the world champs to

join the Pine River Bowls Club

in a coaching role.

The World Bowls Championships

run from November 29

until December 16.

Pride aim for play-off spot

• By Gordon Findlater

THE POSSIBILITY of a home

final will be on the line when

Canterbury United Pride play

Central Football at English

Park on Sunday.

Four teams are in the hunt

for three play-off positions with

just one round remaining in

this year’s National Women’s

League.

Capital Football currently

lead the competition on 13

points, but have a bye this

weekend. The Pride are

currently tied with defending

champion’s Northern Football

on 12 points.

However, Northern have a

better goal differential by two

goals.

Two points back on 10 is

WaiBop, which plays Northern

on Sunday and have an outside

chance of making the top three.

Taking on Central, which

have just one win to show from

five games, the Pride have a

good chance of overcoming

Northern’s goal advantage.

Pride coach Mike De Bono

said the team will be going

into the game with the aim

firstly on victory.

“Anybody can beat anybody

in this competition and if we

go in there with the mindset

that we’re going to rampage

over them, then we could come

unstuck. We like to play an

attacking brand of football, but

we wont be going gung-ho,”

said De Bono.

The Pride suffered their only

defeat of the season earlier this

YOUNG

Midfielder

month to Northern but have

bounced back with wins over

Capital (3-1) and WaiBop (6-1).

“A couple of the younger

girls have really stepped up.

Someone like Macey Fraser

has been great – she probably

wasn’t expecting much game

time but has had a lot of it this

year. And it was great to see her

score her first league goal last

week,” said De Bono.

Sunday’s final round robin

game kicks off at English Park

at 11am.

LINWOOD WILL have one of

its key players available for this

weekend’s Queenstown Nines

Former top prop dies

ONE OF Canterbury’s best ever

rugby league props of the 1960s

and 70s has died.

Mita Mohi

represented Canterbury

43 times from 1960-73.

He had premier club

stints with Marist and

Papanui, and also spent

three seasons with

Riccarton, including a

stint as player-coach.

Mohi, 78, died in Rotorua on

Riccarton Knights and 2015 nines’

champion, the Hornby Panthers.

The first game of the tournament

will see the Keas take on the

Panthers, which will double as a

rematch of this year’s Canterbury

Rugby League grand-final.

This year’s carnival will feature

10 teams, including the Warriors

Old Boys team, which includes the

likes of former Kiwi Awen Guttenbeil.

The Queenstown Nines Carnival

will take place at the Queenstown

Recreation Grounds on Saturday.

Sunday.

He received a Kiwis call-up

for the 1972 World Cup

tour, playing his only

test against France in

Marseille.

He also played for New

Zealand Maori against

Great Britain in 1962.

His body will be taken

to Puhirua Urupā near

Rotorua today, where he

will be laid to rest.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

The Star

Local business

offers free radiator

and air conditioning

check-ups

With the hotter weather coming on, it is

a good idea to have your motor vehicle’s

cooling system checked, especially if

planning any long trips.

No one likes being stuck on the side

of the road, steam bursting from their

vehicle’s radiator due to it having overheated.

This is a very real possibility

if there is a blockage in the radiator,

something that is the main cause of

radiator troubles.

Christchurch Radiators & Air

Conditioning Specialists will check your

radiator for free in just fifteen minutes,

while you wait.

This free check will ensure that the

tubes in your radiator are not clogged up

with unwanted gunk, which will prevent

the radiator from performing as it should

do.

Christchurch Radiators will also check

your air conditioning for free and if the

system needs a full service they can take

care of that too.

Christchurch Radiators are specialists

with a history in servicing radiators and

air conditioning systems that goes back

to the 1950s. With so much experience

in the industry, it is no wonder that they

have an excellent reputation and are

known for providing a reliable quality

service.

Whether you need radiator or air

conditioning servicing or repairs,

for a car, truck or industrial vehicle,

Christchurch Radiators can assist. They

cover:

• auto air cooling system repairs;

• inter-cooler and oil cooler repairs;

• radiator manufacture; and

• fuel tank repairs.

As professional experts in this

specialised field of automotive repairs,

this dependable team have the skill to find

solutions to radiator problems that have

not been easy to solve.

Whether it is your radiator or heating

and cooling system, Chris and his team

will let you know what needs to be done

so you understand your repair options

and the timeframe in which repairs can be

completed.

You can call the team at Christchurch

Radiators & Air Conditioning Specialists

on 03 366 0181 to book a free radiator and

OVER 1000 VEHICLES

FOR SALE

Motorbuys

TM

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN I was picking up

a Mercedes-Benz AMG

A45, the dealership’s head

salesman told me the car

had just had new brakes

and new tyres.

I was intrigued, only for

the fact that the car had

done just a few thousand

kilometres, and I couldn’t

think of a reason why

the originals would have

worn out in such a short

distance. It was then I

was told the car had been

used for demonstration

purposes at Ruapuna

Motorsport Park.

Indeed, the AMG

A45 is a race car in

disguise, although I didn’t

participate in the track

programme I can easily see

why it has such capability

– there’s even a race

track setting in the drive

management protocols.

The AMG A45 is a the

range-topping A-Class

model and it gets the

full works 2-litre, fourcylinder

turbocharged

engine which is found in

a lot of Mercedes-Benz

performance product. In

fact, the engine is used

widely but in varying

power outputs; in

maximum form it is rated

with 280kW along with a

stunning 475Nm of torque.

My first drive with the

high performance engine

was in the GLA A45

which I evaluated in these

columns in July. In the

A-Class car, which is a little

lighter, a bit more nimble,

and with a slight lift in

power it is simply amazing.

Obviously, it has huge

power, but the outputs are

realised at realistic points

in the rev band. Peak

power arrives at 6000rpm,

but maximum torque is

available all of the way

from 2250rpm to 5000rpm

and, as a consequence, the

engine pulls strongly right

through the rev band.

When I mentioned the

drive protocols in my

introduction. It must also

be remembered there are

modes for city (comfort)

driving and sport settings

for when the highways

beckon.

I never used the race

setting, opting mostly for

sport and sport plus, in

those modes the A45 is an

honest, hard working, fast

charger.

To reinforce that,

Mercedes-Benz claim

a 4.2sec time to make

100km/h from a standstill,

MERCEDES-BENZ AMG A45: Loud exhaust sound.

along with a 270km/h top

speed. Such is the force

of turbocharged boost

the occupants are held

back tightly in the seats,

the feel of acceleration is

invigorating, and it comes

with a tantalising sound of

anger.

Mercedes-Benz has

engineered noise into

the AMG A45, and it

barks and wails out the

exhaust pipe constantly.

It is delightful to listen to,

especially on gearshift, up

and down, there is a loud

crackle out the exhaust

which almost sounds like a

backfire.

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz AMG A45,

$98,200

• Dimensions –

Length, 4299mm;

width, 1780mm;

height, 1433mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1991cc, 280kW,

475Nm, seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.2sec

• Fuel usage –

7.3l/100km

I took the test car on

a highway loop between

the two main river gorges

in Canterbury. It is a car

which is at home in the

tight and twisty bits with

handling well matched to

the power outputs.

Firstly, the AMG A45

gets the Mercedes-Benz

4Matic four-wheel-drive

system, it also gets ride

control with selective

damping so that the

suspension can be used to

maximise cornering ability.

If you add into the

equation the grip you

get from the Pirelli

performance specification

PZero tyres (235/35 x

19in), its ability in a corner

loads gravitational force. I

was a little bit circumspect

given the A45’s outright

speed, but it is reassuring

to have so much grip on

offer given the force of

power you can extract out

of the corner.

And when it comes time

to chisel off speed for the

next corner, it’s nice to feel

the strength of the brakes,

as they, too, are on another

level of performance.

The AMG A45 is

a complicated car

engineering-wise, it’s not

complicated to drive but

it has technology which

rewards the driver with

its prowess, it isn’t hard

to drive quickly; and the

electronic systems work

with the driver so that you

feel at ease when the tricky

corners arrive.

At $98,200 it comes at

an affordable performance

car price, and you get a lot

of the bells and whistles

which make Mercedes-

Benz’s product so desirable,

so much so, that column

space doesn’t allow for

detailing.

But I can report that the

AMG A45 will also return

a 9-litre per 100km/h

(31mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average which

I thought was respectable

given I did work the

engine hard, that feel of

acceleration is intoxicating.

That figure is nowhere

near as good as Mercedes-

Benz’s claim of 7.3l/100km

(39mpg), but is respectable

nonetheless.

From humble beginnings

the A-Class has developed

into a wide-ranging series

of models which appeals

to a broad spectrum of

buyers. Those who choose

the performance model

will constantly be rewarded

even when driving at city

speeds, ride comfort and

ease of use hasn’t been

compromised.

However, during my time

with the test car I found

myself constantly heading

for the open roads just to

feel its urge.

Show Homes - the ultimate way

to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

All the benefits,

none of the stress.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?

Check out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Building blocks to

a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building a new

home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of the fine

details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.

THE Christchurch Musicians’ Club

present a night of rock featuring e

Great eory of Magnetism - e

Boys Rock Band.

Celebrating 50 years of rock

music, e Boys Rock Band

promises to deliver the spirit and

sounds of the age - a must for rock

music lovers wanting to relive the

memories and move the dance oor.

Reforming, or according to e

Boys ‘resuscitated’, in 2011, Fuzz aka

Warick Fussell (vocals, guitar);

Bruce Tait (bass, vocals); and John

Cummings (drums) initially formed

in 1962.

“To begin with, e Boys are an

illusion,” says Fuzz. “We are from

Then

the 60s, and in our 60s, and make

Mick Jagger look his age. We are not

quiet, so turn your hearing aids

down and set the pacemaker to

120bpm, don any pair of rose

coloured glasses, and backdate your

watch 40 odd years! It is great to be

able to draw on a wide song list. We

enjoyed a time of prolic, diverse

and energetic music. Our aim is to

put our own avour on things.”

e Great eory of Magnetism -

e Boys Rock Band plays at the

Cashmere Club, 50 Colombo Street,

on Friday from 8pm.

SATURDAY 31 DEC, 8PM

DnD Showband

another fun-filled

Wonderland, she copes with
