OUT AHEAD: Sensei won his maiden race on New Year’s Day at

Waikouaiti.

Sensei shows the class to

live up to Jonny’s memory

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THERE WAS something special

about Sensei – Michael Pitman

knew it from the minute he set

eyes on the year-old colt.

Three years ago, Mr

Pitman’s son, Jonny,

took his own life, aged

28.

Something about the

yearling, which he came

across while visiting

sales in Sydney, brought

back memories of Jonny.

“He reminded me

of my boy when I saw

him – he’s strong, dark, goodlooking,”

Mr Pitman said.

“I always wanted to have a

horse good enough to name

after my son.”

Although Mr Pitman has

raised dozens of horses, he has

never given one a stable nickname.

But when he goes out to work

with the colt, he calls him Jonny.

Last week, his faith in the

horse paid off when Sensei won

at the Waikouaiti New Year’s

Day races.

‘I always wanted to

have a horse good

enough to name

after my son’

– Michael Pitman

It was an emotional moment

for the Pitman family, and for

many others in the racing community

who knew Jonny.

Mr Pitman said it hit home

when he heard commentator

Matt Cross, who knew Jonny,

announce Sensei had reached

HAPPIER TIMES: Jonny Pitman (right) at his brother Matt’s

wedding.

the line “with a little help from

above.”

The name Sensei, which is

the Japanese title for a martial

arts teacher, was chosen

to honour Jonny. He had

represented New Zealand in

judo and tae kwon do, and spent

time in Japan training under

martial arts masters.

The first name the family

considered was Pitbull, the

nickname Jonny was given on

the rugby league field, but that

name was taken.

Mr Pitman runs the Pitman

Racing Stables with his

son, Matt. He said they had

originally planned to have a

three-way partnership with

Jonny.

“I miss my son so badly, it

doesn’t matter. Not only did he

live here with us, we worked

together too,” he said.

One of the horses he and

Jonny trained together, No

Emotion, also raced on New

Year’s Day, finishing third in the

Waikouaiti Cup.

He said Jonny had been

very intelligent and good at

almost everything he did, but

had struggled with depression.

Trying to come to terms

with his son’s death had

been incredibly difficult, he

said.

“For the first six months not

a day went by without the old

‘why or what if’,” he said.

“But I won’t judge what my

son choose to do. I hate what it

did to us, but at the end of the

day it was his decision.”

He said there was a big

stigma around discussing suicide,

but he hoped that would

change.

Job loss

fear as

hospital

faces

budget

woes

• By Gabrielle Stuart

HOSPITAL STAFF could face

job losses this year, as the health

board plans to cut at least $9

million from its staff budget.

The cut is part of the Canterbury

District Health Board’s

efforts to balance its books, as it

faces a $38.5 million shortfall this

year.

The planned cut would take effect

from July.

On top of that, a Government

review of the CDHB finances has

recommended it cut the projected

staff budget by a further $98.6

million over the next five years.

CDHB board chairman Murray

Cleverley said it had not yet

been decided if job cuts would

be needed, but he would not rule

them out.

“Once again our expectations

are that we will continue to move

and shift our organisation as

needed,” he said.

He said the health board would

meet later this month to discuss

the recommended budget cuts.

He hoped money could be saved

in other ways, and said the CDHB

had saved money in the past by

transferring services from hospital

staff to GPs, who could do the

work cheaper.

News....................................3-16

A TOUCHING article on

page 1 today about promising

young race horse Sensei.

The colt has been named

after Jonny Pitman, son of wellknown

trainer Michael Pitman.

Jonny sadly took his life three

years ago, and his father, one of

the country’s best-known and

top trainers has waited a long

time for a horse good enough

to name in recognition of his

son’s sporting qualities.

Sensei won at Waikouaiti on

New Year’s Day and now heads

to Trentham for tougher competition

against some of the

country’s best thoroughbreds.

We wish the Pitman family

all the best.

And, finally good news for

pensioner Bill McDaniel, now

back in his home after a long

wait while it was rebuilt after

the February earthquake (see

page 7).

The Star went into bat for Bill

and it looks like that has got a

result.

Enjoy being back at home

Bill!

Stringing tennis players along

• By Andrew King

SERENA WILLIAMS may have

only played two matches at the

ASB Classic but she needed her

rackets restrung 28 times.

Well-known Canterbury tennis

identity Tony Ralfe was part

of a team re-stringing rackets

in Auckland for both the men’s

and women’s tournaments at

the classic.

He has been tennis racket

stringer for the tournament

for the past

12 years and was

excited to see the

Williams sisters

and world No

20 Caroline

Wozniacki.

“During her short time

in the tournament she

[Serena] asked for 28 restrings

. . . we strung four

of them and within 20

minutes they had been

returned to be done

again,” he said.

Wozniacki and

Venus Williams

had about 15 rackets

restrung during the

tournament.

He said this was not

unusual as players get

settled into the season

and tried new tensions

on their rackets.

Serena, ranked

No 2 in the world,

was ousted in the

second round

by American

Madison

Brengle,

while her sister, Venus, who is

currently ranked 16th in the

world, beat New Zealand’s Jade

Lewis in the first round but experienced

pain in her right arm

forcing her to pull out.

“It was a shame to see some

of those big names miss out on

the final but great for the public

who were able to see some of the

other players perform,” he said.

Being under the stands away

from the game has its advantages,

Mr Ralfe knows exactly

what kind of racket is being

used and how it has

been set up.

“I was interested to

see Venus, for

some reason,

deciding

to go

for

STRINGER: Tony Ralfe said it was great to see big names

such as Serena Williams (left) in Auckland, but a shame they

couldn’t perform.

the smaller racket head this

tournament,” he said.

He said both sisters normally

use a 104 sq in sized racket but

Venus dropped down to a 98

sq in.

“But when the rain delay

came she rushed in four

brand new 104s to be

strung, however, we believe

she continued to use the

98s,” he said.

Mr Ralfe said women’s

tournament winner

American Lauren Davis

has an additional “feather

in her cap” being able

to say her first tournament

win had both

Williams sisters and Wozniacki

in it.

Mr Ralfe, who owns Bishopdale

Sports World, had some

advice for anyone who was

thinking about getting into the

restringing game.

“I ask them one question:

‘What are you like getting out

of bed?’ Because it is extremely

long hours, but a lot of good

fun,” he said.

Mr Ralfe will continue to

string rackets for the men’s

tournament which finishes on

Saturday and said they would

have restrung about 600 during

the two tournaments.

In Brief

NO CHARGES FOR DRIVER

An 18-year-old male driver who

struck and killed a pedestrian west

of Templeton in August will not be

charged by police. Poor visibility

and an unfortunate choice of

clothing contributed to the death

of 48-year-old Todd Jackson, who

was visiting from Queensland. He

was wearing a camouflage top and

dark pants. Road policing manager

Inspector Al Stewart said neither

party was to blame, it was an

unfortunate event.

CHARITY BOX THEFT

A burglar who broke into Caltex

Kaiapoi yesterday morning

stole about $200 from charity

donation boxes. The money had

been collected for the Canterbury

Charity Hospital and Kaiapoi

Volunteer Fire Brigade. The burglar

was captured on camera. The

footage has been passed to police.

Hospital job

loss fears

•From page 1

The Government review has also

recommended budget cuts in other

areas, like older people’s services,

clinical supplies and cleaning.

NZ Nurses Organisation chief executive

Memo Musa said the organisation

had not yet been consulted

about effects of the cuts on staff.

He laid the blame for any cuts on

Government funding.

“DHB deficits are a symptom of

Government underfunding, which

forces DHBs to make inappropriate

cuts to services,” he said.

The CDHB has repeatedly asked

the Ministry of Health to review

its funding system, as Canterbury’s

per person funding has dropped in

several areas, in spite of the growing

population and extra demand on

services.

They include mental health, where

the per person funding dropped

from $222 in the 2015 financial year

to $207 last year, in spite of greater

need for the services since the earthquakes.

Five-year-old sets fire to house

• By Andrew King

WALTHAM MUM Lisa Van

Duinen has a message for

parents – don’t leave lighters

lying around.

On Monday she and her four

children had to flee their Frederick

St home as it erupted in

flames after her five-year-old son

set fire to his brother’s bed.

He had taken a lighter from

her bedside table, while she was

in the shower, and gone into his

older brother’s room were he

started the fire.

Her 16-yearold

son attempted

to fight

the fire before

alerting his

mother in the

shower – she

came out to see

the room engulfed

in flames

and screamed “get out.”

The whole house was full of

smoke and I could see the flames

getting bigger and bigger, so I

just got everyone outside,” she

said.

Her son is “completely traumatised,”

she said.

“When we try to talk to him

about it he just covers his ears

was started in one of the children’s bedrooms.

and doesn’t respond,” she said.

Miss Van Duinen (left) said

she hopes he has learnt a valuable

lesson – do not play with fire.

The family has lost “pretty

much everything” including

family photos, kids toys and

other personal items – they were

not insured.

But her father, Robert Van

Duinen, has already found a new

house for the family.

“I just started ringing people I

know and before long we had a

house sorted,” Mr Van Duinen

said.

A Facebook page called Helping

Lisa’s Family has been set

up to get items they desperately

need.

It will mean a move back to

Aranui, and a change of schools

for her children.

He and his daughter were

visibly moved by the amount of

people who had come forward

to support them in their time of

need.

“I just can’t find the words to

describe the kindness that has

been shown to us by the public. I

want to thank them all from the

bottom of my heart,” Miss Van

Duinen said.

Three fire appliances battled

the blaze for around two hours,

but the house is completely uninhabitable.

Landlord Nick Boot said he

was sad to see the house like that

as it had been his family home

since the 70s.

“I am really glad they all made

it out all right, it’s just hard because

I have so many memories

in the place,” he said.

Mr Pitman was confident

he would do well.

Too many ignore seat belts

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE PEOPLE are being

killed on Canterbury roads

because they are not wearing

seat belts.

Fifty-two of the people

killed on Canterbury roads

from 2012-2016 were not

wearing seat belts – the third

highest in the country.

That followed 61 in Auckland,

and 56 in Bay of Plenty.

The numbers were released

yesterday.

Police will up their enforcement

and focus more on

educating people to wear seat

belts this year as a result.

It comes two weeks after

Cole Troy Hull, Samuel James

Drost and Lily Frances Moore,

all 15, were killed when the

car they were passengers in

failed to take a corner on

Harts Rd near Leeston. They

were not wearing seat belts.

The 14-year-old unlicensed

driver was seriously injured,

while Alex Brown, the only

one wearing a seat belt, received

minor injuries.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

said the numbers were

“absolutely unacceptable.”

He said the deaths of the

three teenagers was a reminder

seat belts reduced the

risk of death by 50 per cent for

front seat passengers and 75

per cent for those in the back

seat.

“We know the young guy

who walked away from that

crash walked away because he

was wearing his seat belt. If

that doesn’t send a message to

people who are in similar situations,

I’m baffled,” Inspector

Stewart said.

The number of people killed

in Canterbury who were not

wearing their seat belts had

increased from eight in 2012

to 15 last year.

Nine males and six females

killed in Canterbury crashes

last year were not wearing seat

belts. In 2015, there were 11

males and four females killed,

and in 2014, four males and

two females were killed while

not wearing seat belts.

Inspector Stewart said

the increase in the number

of females killed when not

wearing their seat belt was

concerning.

“It’s so simple to do, it takes

a couple of seconds to make

yourself a lot safer.”

Great news for

pensioner Bill

PENSIONER Bill McDaniel has

finally moved into his new home.

In November, The

Star highlighted the

plight of the 83-yearold

to move into his

rebuilt Sinclair St,

New Brighton, house.

The Parkinson’s disease

sufferer was able

to move in over Christmas.

His original home was damaged

in the February 2011

earthquake, and his insurance

company Vero decided it would

be a rebuild.

Platinum Homes, which contracts

Mass Construction, was to

build it.

Initially, Mr McDaniel’s accommodation

and storage costs were

covered by SIS Insurance for a

year, but that ceased in June.

However, delays in finishing it

had him and his family at their

wits’ end.

He had been living with his

daughter in New Brighton, while

he waited to move in.

Mr McDaniel could not talk

to The Star about moving in to

his home, as he has entered a

confidentiality agreement with

Platinum Homes.

Platinum Homes did not respond

to The Star.

Where do you want to

be next Christmas?

Bid to prolong discharge into rivers

• By Bridget Rutherford

UNTREATED wastewater will

continue to be poured into the

city’s waterways during storms

and high rainfall.

THe city council is applying

to Environment Canterbury

for a new resource consent to

continue discharging untreated

wastewater into the waterways

and harbours in emergencies.

More than 700,000 cu m of

wastewater, including sewage,

had been discharged into the

waterways since 2012.

Following the September

2010 earthquake, ECan granted

the city council consent for

occasional overflows into

waterways so it did not flood

onto properties.

However, because of

earthquake damage, a nonenforcement

agreement was put

in place.

But that ceases in March, so

the city council either needed

to comply with its original

consent, or apply for a new

one.

City council three waters

and waste acting head John

Moore said it was unlikely

to be able to meet its consent

conditions, as it appeared the

frequency of overflows may

exceed what was allowed.

He said it would be possible

to stop wastewater

overflows with a new

pressure sewer network,

however, that would cost

$3 billion.

Wastewater includes

sewage and shower,

washing machine

and sink water. The

wastewater system

had built in overflow points,

which allowed wastewater to be

released during storms.

It overflows into the

Avon and Heathcote

rivers, the estuary,

Lyttelton, Diamond

Harbour, Governors

Bay and Akaroa.

EMERGENCIES:

The city council

will apply for a

consent to

discharge

untreated

wastewater

into waterways

during high

rainfall.

the national standard for

wastewater discharges was once

every two years.

However, in Christchurch it

was happening once every six

months, he said.

For the city’s rivers to be used

safely for recreation, there could

not be any sewage flowing into

them, he said.

“Until that’s dealt with, we

can’t have swimmable Avon and

Heathcote Rivers.”

Statistics favour

maternity unit

in east of city

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CAMPAIGNERS BATTLING for the

closed Burwood Birthing Unit to be

replaced have been buoyed by new

data, which they say backs their case.

The birthing unit was closed in

February after it was damaged in the

Valentine’s Day quake, and the Canterbury

District Health Board deemed

it uneconomic to repair.

But data from Statistics NZ shows

more than 15,000 families with children

living in the area. It also shows

birth rates in the east are predicted to

be some of the highest in the city in

the future.

Christchurch East MP Poto Williams

said the data painted a strong

case for a maternity unit in the east.

She planned to present the data to

Parliament after it resumes in February,

along with a petition.

The petition, which has been signed

by 4110 people, calls for the Government

to give Canterbury extra funding

to pay for the maternity unit.

She said the numbers had not been

considered when a decision was made

to close the unit.

They predict the birth rates in

most eastern suburbs next year will

be greater than two, with Aranui the

highest at 2.47. That compares with a

1.76 average expected birth rate across

Christchurch.

We will remember them:

Film to honour WW1 soldiers, horses

• By Bridget Rutherford

IT WAS July, 1914 and World

War 1 had broken out in Europe.

New Zealand men were being

called on to enlist and fight in

the war with allied troops.

Many thought it would be an

adventure and a chance to see

the world. Others believed the

war would be over within six

months.

Among the hundreds of thousands

were rural men from high

country stations – some of them

with their horses – who joined

the mounted rifles regiments.

They served at Gallipoli and

went to Egypt with their horses

to train, before serving in the

successful Sinai and Palestine

campaigns against the Turks

from 1916-18 and across the

Middle East.

While the Gallipoli campaign

is taught in school history classes

and well known to many, the

peril of the country’s mounted

rifles brigades was not – until

now.

Hawarden man Terry King

is spearheading a team making

a film about the rural men and

their horses who went to serve in

World War 1.

The Cold Footed Mounts will

focus on four Canterbury men

who went to serve in the Canterbury

Mounted Rifles Regiment,

and the bond they formed with

their horses.

Mr King said these stories had

never been told before.

“After a disastrous campaign

[Gallipoli], they had to do it all

again. There’s a lot of history

there, it’s all been hidden.”

Mr King, who was in the

army’s Territorial Force for 10

years before working for the

United Nations, said the idea

came from his great grandfather,

Henry Coppell, who served in

the Canterbury Mounted Rifles

Regiment.

After reading through Mr

PRODUCERS: Stunt double Dayna Grant and Terry King

working on the film. ​

Coppell’s diaries from when he

served in the Middle East during

the war, Mr King realised how

little people knew of these men

and their stories.

Many were respected soldiers,

but they were starved and lost

teeth because of the food they

had to eat, he said.

In spite of that, they all took

extremely good care of their

horses, he said.

“A lot of the family did not

know that. He [Mr Coppell]

never showed that diary until

after his death.”

After further research into

the regiments, Mr King decided

those mens’ stories needed to be

told.

The film’s core team would

ROLLING: A preview for the

film was shot near Amberley.

consist of Mr King, director

Charlie Haskell, assistant director

Darren Simmonds, Hollywood

stunt double and producer

Dayna Grant and lead script

writer Tanya Wheeler.

Ms Grant was Lucy Lawless’

stunt double in Xena: Warrior

Princess.

She had since been a stunt

double for Hollywood stars such

as Charlize Theron, Gwyneth

Paltrow and Tilda Swinton,

appearing on Mad Max: Fury

Road, The Chronicles of Narnia:

The Lion, the Witch and the

Wardrobe and Snow White and

the Huntsman.

Ms Wheeler was currently a

script writer for the Power Rangers

Dino Charge television series,

while Mr Haskell directs it.

Mr King said everyone who

was involved in making the film

had connections to the mounted

rifles regiments.

There would be four lead and

six secondary actors, and the

team was looking for young,

fresh actors to star in it.

Mr King said a lot of the

shooting would take place in

North Canterbury, with the

trailer to be filmed this month

and next at Waipara’s Weka Pass

Railway.

Other scenes would be filmed

in the North Island, and a South

Australian desert near Adelaide.

The project comes after Mr

King organised the 100 Years,

100 Horses Ride on Anzac Day

in 2015.

It saw 100 uniformed riders

from New Zealand and Australia

ride from North Canterbury’s

The Peaks Hall into Waikari on

the day.

It was the first time New Zealand

and Australian riders had

ridden side by side in an Anzac

Day parade.

Mr King said it was a massive

job to organise the ride, and he

suffered two minor heart attacks

following it.

“I thought I had indigestion.”

His wife Nikki had since been

keeping a close eye on him, he

said.

Mr King also organised a similar

ride on Anzac Day in Kaikoura

last year with 60 horses,

and hopes to have another from

Burnham to Christchurch next

year.

Ten main horses, which belong

to both Mr King and some

friends, will be used for filming

with much of it done in front of a

green screen.

They were currently being

trained to become used to the

equipment, sounds and filming.

He said they hoped to have

the 120min film completed to be

screened on November 11, 2018,

to mark the end of World War 1.

The crew had set up a Givealittle

page to help raise the funds to

make the film.

They hope to raise about

$20,000 before using the film

trailer to apply for major funding

to complete the project.

“We need to know our history,”

Mr King said.

Spring Festival,

the “Chinese Christmas”

With the Christmas season coming to an end, the Chinese

communities will soon celebrate another important festival

of their own, the Chinese New Year, also known the Spring

Festival. The significance of Spring Festival to them equals that

of Christmas to Westerners. It will be worthwhile to know a bit

about this “Chinese Christmas” as the celebrations draw close.

Spring Festival as the Chinese New Year is celebrated at the turn

of the lunar Chinese calendar. Celebrations run from the evening

preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of

the first calendar month. The first day of the New Year falls on the

new moon between 21 January and 20 February. In 2017, the first

day of the Chinese New Year is on 28 January.

earth, officially beginning at midnight. It is a traditional practice

to light fireworks to make as much of a din as possible to chase

off the evil spirits.

Most importantly, the first day of Chinese New Year is a time to

honor one’s elders and families visit the oldest and most senior

members of their extended families, usually their parents,

grandparents and great-grandparents. Some families may invite

a lion dance troupe as a symbolic ritual to usher in the Chinese

New Year as well as to evict bad spirits from the premises.

Gift Exchange

In addition to red envelopes, which are usually given from older

people to younger people, small gifts (usually food or sweets)

are also exchanged between friends or relatives (of different

households) during Chinese New Year. Gifts are usually brought

when visiting friends or relatives at their homes. Common gifts

include fruits, cakes, biscuits, chocolates, and candies. Certain

items should not be given, as they are considered taboo. Taboo

gifts include: items associated with funerals (i.e. handkerchiefs,

towels, chrysanthemums, items colored white and black);items

that show that time is running out (i.e. clocks and watches);sharp

objects that symbolize cutting a tie (i.e. scissors and knives);items

that symbolize that you want to walk away from a relationship

(i.e.: shoes and sandals);mirrors; homonyms for unpleasant topics

(i.e.: “pear” sounds like “separate”, and “umbrella” sounds like “fall

apart” in Chinese).

The Spring Festival is centuries old and traditionally the festival

is a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. It is also celebrated

in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations,

including Southeast Asia, North America, Australia and New

Zealand.

Mythology

According to tales and legends, the beginning of the Chinese

New Year started with a mythical beast called the Nian. Nian

would eat villagers, especially children. One year, all the villagers

decided to go hide from the beast. An old man appeared before

the villagers went into hiding and said that he would stay for the

night, and decided to get revenge on the Nian. All the villagers

thought he was insane. The old man put red papers up and set off

firecrackers. The day after, the villagers came back to their town

to see that nothing was destroyed. They assumed that the old man

was a deity who came to save them. The villagers then understood

that the Nian was afraid of the red color and loud noises. When

the New Year was about to come, the villagers would wear red

clothes, hang red lanterns, and red spring scrolls on windows and

doors. People also used firecrackers to frighten away the Nian.

From then on, Nian never came to the village again.

Customs and Traditions

With the Spring Festival coming,

it is traditional for every family

to thoroughly cleanse the house,

in order to sweep away any illfortune

and make way for good

incoming luck. Windows and

doors will be decorated with red

color paper-cuts and couplets

with popular themes of “good

fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”,

and “longevity”.

The first day is for the welcoming

of the deities of the heavens and

Members of the family who are married also give red envelopes

containing cash known as Hongpau (Mandarin) or lai see

(Cantonese dialect), a form of blessings, to junior members of the

family, mostly children and teenagers. Business managers also

give bonuses through red packets to employees for good luck,

smooth-sailing, good health and wealth.

Family Reunion Dinner

Nian Ye Fan(Grand Dinner on New Year’s Eve) is held on New

Year’s Eve during which family members gather for celebration.

The venue will usually be in or near the home of the most senior

member of the family. Family members far away from home

will manage to come back, regardless of long-distance travel,

so the “Grand Dinner on New Year’s Eve” is also called “Family

Reunion Dinner”. Every family will make the dinner the most

sumptuous and ceremonious one in the year. Hostesses will fetch

out foodstuffs prepared in early time and all family members will

sit together and make dumplings in jollification. In most areas,

fish (yú) is included in the dinner, as the Chinese phrase “may

there be surpluses every year”(nián nián yǒu yú) sounds the same

as “let there be fish every year.”

Clothing

Clothing mainly featuring the color red or bright colors is

commonly worn throughout the

Chinese New Year because it was

once believed that red could scare

away evil spirits and bad fortune.

In addition, people typically wear

new clothes from head to toe to

symbolize a new beginning in the

new year.

Greetings

The Chinese New Year is often

accompanied by loud, enthusiastic

greetings of auspicious words or

phrases. Some of the most common greetings include guònián

Hǒo(happy new year), gōngxǒfācái (Congratulations and be

prosperous), and wànshìrúyì(May all your wishes be fulfilled).

Children and teenagers sometimes jokingly use the phrase

gōngxǒfācái hóngbāo nálái(congratulations and be prosperous,

now give me a red envelope).

Chinese Shengxiao

It is also worth mentioning that the coming Chinese lunar New

Year is the year of Rooster. It has something to do with the

Chinese animal zodiac, or shengxiao (“born resembling”) which

is a repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented

by an animal and its reputed attributes. Traditionally these zodiac

animals were used to date the years. In order, the 12 animals are:

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey,

Rooster, Dog and Pig.

The rooster being the sign of dawn and awakening, triumph

and success can only be achieved at the price of hard work and

patience. According to Chinese astrology, the Rooster years are

known to be filled with integrity and efficiency. This year is also

auspicious for marriage and relationships, and it is a good year for

singles to get married.

The City Council and the Chinese

communities will hold a series of

celebrations during the Spring

Festival season in Christchurch

every year, including the popular

Lanterns Show. We welcome you

to join the gala, and wish you all

have a merry “Chinese Christmas”

and a prosperous year of Rooster.

Study shows quake actions “selfless”

Research aims to show

why people didn’t

follow official advice

• By Gabrielle Stuart

Emily

Lambie

DROP, COVER, Hold: Even

pre-schoolers are taught that

is the right thing to do in an

earthquake.

But a new study into the behaviour

of 213 people during the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

has revealed not a single person

followed the official

advice.

Instead the

study, which used

CCTV footage from

Christchurch Hospital’s

emergency

department, found

people often tried to

help others around them.

Canterbury University disaster

management professor Thomas

Wilson said some people took

heroic action to try to protect

others, especially children or

injured patients.

“Some acts we saw were

extremely selfless, like people

covering patients with their own

bodies,” he said.

About a quarter of people

studied held on to furniture,

walls or other people around

them during the quake, and

about a third were looking

around at other people.

The study was part of a wider

project, which aims to understand

how people

actually respond in

a disaster situation,

and what things lead

to people being hurt.

Dr Wilson said

Thomas

Wilson

while “drop, cover,

hold” was still the

advice people were

given, experts

needed to understand why they

might not follow it.

That could help them shape

future advice, as well as things

like the design of buildings.

He said the researchers saw

patterns in the way people reacted

during the study.

to react more defensively, while

people in groups tried to help

each other. Nurses on duty were

also more likely to immediately

think of their patients, rather

than trying to stay safe themselves.

Dr Wilson said researchers in

the past had relied on things like

interviews or ACC claims for

information, but there were gaps

in that information.

“With memories, the timing is

always a bit out and we struggled

a lot to understand what was the

context, what sort of house were

they in, how many other people

were around, that kind of thing.”

Former Canterbury University

student Emily Lambie developed

the methodology while studying

disaster management. She

earned a 10-month Fullbright

Scholarship to carry on her

research at California State University

last year.

She made presentations on the

work at several conferences while

there, and said several people doing

similar work had been interested

in working collaboratively

to develop the work.

She plans to return to

Christchurch this month, and

said she would like to develop

her research into something

“useful, usable and used” by the

public.

“We really see the importance

of this study, especially in the

New Zealand context, so that’s

Young gun racer for Ferrari academy

Formula one

now firmly in

Armstrong’s

sights

• By Gordon Findlater

THE DAYS of being picked up

from Medbury School for kart

training appear to be paying

off for talented driver Marcus

Armstrong.

After a short stint at Christ’s

College, the 16-year-old has

spent the last two years based in

Oxford, United Kingdom, where

he has been a works driver for

top team Tony Kart.

Armstrong spends the majority

of his time in England and

commutes to races around

Europe while also spending time

living and working at the Tony

Kart factory in Italy.

He’ll now be spending far

more time in Italy. Last month,

Armstrong was chosen to join

the elite Ferrari Driver Academy,

a fast track programme which

prepares drivers for the top

categories of international

motorsport.

“I managed to form a bit of a

relationship with (the academy)

and was invited to do a test at

their track in Maranello,” Armstrong

said.

“We were evaluated against

some other drivers, and from

that I was chosen to join the

(academy), which is pretty mega

and I’m very happy.”

The academy will give Armstrong

a great platform as he

prepares to drive in some of the

world’s most competitive singleseat

racing categories over the

coming years.

In Maranello, he will have access

to mental coaching, physical

trainers and world-class driving

simulators.

Founded in 2009, the programme

has propelled several

drivers into formula one, including

Sergio Perez and Jules

Bianchi.

The Kiwi joins Enzo Fittipaldi

as the latest drivers to join the

academy. Fittipaldi is the grandson

of double formula one world

champion Emerson and his

given name is a nod to Ferrari

founder Enzo Ferrari.

Armstrong began driving

karts as an eight-year-old under

the guidance of Matthew

FERRARI FUTURE: Marcus Armstrong will join the Ferrari Driver

Academy in Maranello, Italy.

Hamilton who has international

experience in single-seaters and

has become known as one of the

world’s top kart drivers.

The difference with Marcus

is how driven he is. It was always

him asking to go to the track,

whereas some others at that age

it’s dad dragging them to the

track,” said Hamilton.

“I’d often pick him up after

school and take him down to the

track.”

His drive for success as a

youngster took him to Europe in

2015, where he has been competing

against the world’s top kart

drivers, many of whom have

more years and experience on

the teenager.

“This year was really difficult.

We drove in the KZ class but it’s

been the most beneficial year

in terms of learning because

KZ is such a high level and, in

my opinion, I won’t arrive at

a championship with as many

experienced drivers until I get to

GP2,” said Armstrong.

This weekend Armstrong

returns home to begin his debut

season in the Toyota Racing

Series.

“It’s great to be home, but it’s a

coincidence that the championships

is in my home country.

Even if I was Japanese or European,

I would be coming here to

race,” said Armstrong.

The first round of the series

begins at Ruapuna on Saturday

where he will have the chance

to add his name to the Lady

Wigram Trophy with the likes of

Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Jochen

Rindt, Jackie Stewart, Bruce

McLaren and Stirling Moss.

In 2015, the trophy was won by

Canada’s Lance Stroll who is set

to become the second youngest

formula one driver in history

after securing a drive with the

Williams team this season.

Following the five-round

Toyota Racing Series, Armstrong

will return to Europe to begin

life in Maranello where he will

look to emulate the achievements

of others that have come through

the Ferrari Driver Academy.

Shackleton artefacts up for auction

EXPLORER: A portrait of

Ernest Shackleton will be up

for sale at Bonhams Auction

House next month along with

menus from banquets held

in the expedition’s honour

before an aborted trip to the

South Pole in 1909.

• By Kurt Bayer

A COLLECTION of rare

memorabilia stemming from

the famous 1908 Nimrod

Expedition to Antarctica,

including insights into the

British team’s wining and

dining with the Christchurch

establishment before heading

further south, is going under the

hammer.

More than a century after

British polar explorer Sir Ernest

Shackleton’s aborted journey

to the South Pole, the historic

cache has surfaced at Bonhams

auction house in London.

Shackleton returned to Britain

after Captain Robert Falcon

Scott’s Discovery Expedition of

1903 already planning his own

mission to the unclaimed South

Pole.

In the “ageing but sturdy”

ship, the Nimrod, he set off from

England in 1907 and stopped at

New Zealand, as a final launch

base for the ice continent.

Before the expedition left Lyttelton

on New Year’s Day 1908,

the crew was hosted for lunches

and functions by the great

and the good of Christchurch

society.

At one function, Shackleton

expedition.

PHOTO: BONHAMS AUCTION HOUSE

was presented with a copper

salver made from bolts taken

from Lord Nelson’s ship HMS

Victory, and Bishop Julius gave

his blessing at another event

attended by some 80 local dignitaries.

They were then hosted to a

private dinner given by Joseph

Kinsey, previously Scott’s New

Zealand agent, two nights before

they sailed.

Now, menus from a “complimentary

banquet” hosted by the

Philosophical Institute of Canterbury,

and a dinner held on

December 19, 1907, by wealthy

and influential members of the

Canterbury Club, are expected

to fetch thousands at auction

next month. Both artefacts are

signed by Shackleton and other

Nimrod Expedition members.

The items had been owned by

Henry J.L. Dunlop (1876-1931),

chief engineer on the Nimrod,

and came into the hands of the

present owner by descent, Bonhams

says.

The February 1 sale also

includes extracts from Dunlop’s

diary and second officer Aeneas

Mackintosh’s private diary, as well

as typed letters by Shackleton.

A series of stunning blackand-white

photos taken by expedition

photographer Herbert

George Ponting are also offered

for sale.

Each item is expected to fetch

thousands of pounds.

After having endured the

fiercest winter on Earth in

huts they built on Ross Island,

Shackleton, Frank Wild, Eric

Marshall and Jameson Boyd

Adams set off on October 29,

1908, due south across the Ross

Ice Shelf, with four manchurian

ponies pulling sledges, attempting

to become the first men

to reach the South

Pole.

But on January

9, 1909, with

severe weather

conditions and

temperatures dropping

below

-30 deg C, and the

group running perilously

low on food,

Shackleton made

the tough decision to

abandon the mission just

156km short of their goal.

Norwegian explorer

Roald Amundsen won the

race to the Pole three years

later. – NZ Herald

thing or demolish it. Choose for

God’s sake stop dicking around.

We said:

The correct spelling of

the Christ Church Cathedral

seems to have caused

some confusion, with even

the Anglican Diocese itself

confused. Its press release

sent out to say a decision

on the Cathedral’s fate

had been delayed had

the name spelled in two

different ways.

You said:

Peter Banens –

Christchurch, ChristChurch

or Christ Church Cathedral?

Cathedral administrator Chris

Oldham is right to say that

Christ Church Cathedral is now

the official name. But surely

it is more important to hurry

up and decide the fate of the

actual building! It has been

nearly six years since damage

was caused by the earthquakes.

Offers from overseas have been

made to pay for reconstruction

or replacement. And even to

cover up the gaping hole where

the tower was. But nothing has

happened! Japan, who have also

had bad earthquake damage,

wouldn’t take more than six

years to replace or reconstruct

buildings like our Cathedral!

Action please!

Lynn Mortlock – Just get on

with it and make a decision, how

can Christchurch ever move on

when it stays ruined in the city

centre? It’s an eyesore and shows

our pathetic progress.

Fiona Lovell-Smith – With

all the money that has been wasted

on committees to make a decision

over the past six years, you

would think they could come up

with something better than we

might make a decision late 2017.

It’s a joke and now our beloved

Cathedral is an eyesore. Why

can a decision not be made? I

don’t want to see it destroyed,

but I think six years on, we need

to move on as those of you who

make these decisions have let it

deteriorate beyond repair.

Nicki Cartlidge – Christ

Church Cathedral, Christchurch.

Okay . . . happy? Now someone

please make a sound decision!

How long does it have to take to

assess the feasibility of the options

available and do something?

Trish Feeney – Christ

Church. Taking too long to make

a decision with what to do with

the Cathedral. I reckon save as

much of the back half as possible

and pull down the front half and

rebuild a newer modern front

adjoined to the old. We do this

with houses, can’t see why it

can’t be done with a church.

Heather Wilkins –

Christchurch. That has been

the spelling as long as I can

remember. Please get on and do

something with the Cathedral as

it’s an eyesore. Preferably pull it

down and stop wasting money.

Hopefully not the ratepayers!

Bruce Denton – Don’t care

how it’s spelt, just fix the damn

Alex McLaughlin – Never

mind how it’s spelt, just repair it

if it’s affordable to get it repaired!

Sue Stikkelman – Who

cares about the spelling? Just get

on with something on this site

whether it’s a church or a memorial,

just do something.

Michael Gies – Either

make a decision or turn it into a

quake memorial site. The delay

is an open wound to anyone in

Christchurch who sees it.

Kevin Garty – Well, let’s form

a steering committee for this matter,

we should meet once every six

months through to 2020 and then

present our findings.

Barbara Holland – The

correct spelling of Christchurch

Cathedral is either munted or

eyesore! Time to pull it down

and get a new one. Nearly six

years.

Andrew Paul Wood – The

preferred diocesan spelling is

Christ Church.

We said:

Environment Canterbury

spent $800,000 upgrading

its website so it was more

mobile-friendly. However,

critics say spending

that much money was

unacceptable.

You said:

Miriam Morton – The

website desperately needed

upgrading – it was difficult to

locate information on it, even

when you did know what you

were looking for, let alone when

you weren’t sure. $800,000

seems a lot, but on the scale of

things, taking into account the

area covered and the aspects

involved (transport, water, air,

RMA consents to name a few), it

probably was that big a job.

Lee Stevens – The mobile

thing is a massive red herring.

You can get sites for less than $10

a month . . . The real question

is will it save them what they

have spent over three years in

operations, i.e can you perform

transactions that previously

would have required human

input?

Edel Lougheed – Depends

on what was included in the

original brief given to the web

developers in the first place. Did

(they) get at least two to three

quotes to compare pricing? A

basic info-based website upgrade

should be $35,000 max with SEO

work. The problem now for 2017

is that Google is now ranking

websites lower on SERPs (search

engine result pages) based on

whether they are not mobile

responsive, user-friendly, content

driven etc. I’d suggest either

revisiting your brief or getting

alternative quotes. Plenty of

multimedia students willing to

write a brief for you.

Teresa Burchall – Just

because the amount was

“budgeted” for doesn’t mean it

has to be spent. How can this

company justify charging such

an extortionate amount for 10

months work? This is pure greed!

Cathryn Lucy – That’s

absolutely ridiculous. We got an

incredible one from an awardwinning

company for under

$3000! Not sure how that bill has

been racked up, but whoever is

in charge should be questioned.

Brent Hutchison – Seems

a bit excessive. Seen far bigger,

more complex sites maintained

for annual contract fees of

$50,000 and two full-time

employees from within the

parent company’s comms

and marketing department as

content managers.

Rob Stowell – Ridiculously

over priced. And ECan have no

mandate – it’s taxation without

representation. So every dollar

they spend is more-or-less stolen

from us anyway. Until we get a

fully elected regional council we

are simply being ripped off.

Emma Wilson – Didn’t

the council recently spend $1.2

million on (its) new site? I’d say

$800,000 is pretty much bang

on. You don’t get a good site on

this scale for $20,000, sorry.

Shirley Clark – I do not want

my rates paying for this! It’s too

late I know, but not happy.

Jacqui Rose-Anderson

– Appalling! $20,000 should

have covered it!

Our People

Prison chaplain role rewarded

DEDICATED:

Mary Kamo

received a

New Year

Honour for

services to

the welfare

of prisoners

after being

a prison

chaplain for

33 years.

Mary Kamo spent 33 years working with prisoners to turn their lives around. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to her about helping inmates, moving into a recycled home from

the red zone, and being proud of her kids

You were made a Companion of the

New Zealand Order of Merit in the

New Year Honours. How did you

feel when you found out?

I was astonished; I thought they

must have had the wrong person.

But when I realised I felt very, very

privileged. I found out about two

months before the announcement.

When you’re told, you have to keep it

confidential and that was the hardest

part, I couldn’t tell anybody!

You received the honour for

your work with the inmates

at Christchurch Women’s,

Paparua Men’s and

Rolleston prisons as

chaplain. Can you tell

me what your work

involved?

It involved visiting

the prison, meeting

with inmates, doing

sacraments,

and Sunday

services. Just

really trying to

assist inmates

in getting

some sense

of their own

WHANAU: Mary Kamo loves to spend time with her family.

spirituality. A lot of people would say

they believed in some sort of faith,

but a lot don’t know how to bring it

into daily living. More than 50 per

cent of women in prison are Maori,

and because of my involvement I was

able to meet them at that level and

also bring in people from their own

iwi or kaumatua to come in a meet

with them and do their whakapapa

with them. I worked in Paparua and

Rolleston prisons as well, but my

heart was in the women’s prison because

what we need to do, I believe,

is find alternatives to imprisonment.

Now I’m not talking about them not

taking responsibility for criminal

activity, but I do think there are

probably better ways of handling it

than breaking up families, children

going into care, and then that whole

damage being very difficult to repair

when the mothers come out of

prison. Pillars say that the families

do the sentence, and that’s absolutely

true. •Turn to page 22

‘It expanded my thinking, expanded my heart’

•From page 21

How did you come into the

role?

I had been very involved in

the community in the Christian

family movement. Then I moved

onto working as a volunteer for

Whakatata House, I was volunteering

there for some years.

Then I got involved in starting up

the restorative justice outreach

in Christchurch. I was asked if I

would take on the role as prison

chaplain and with a little bit of

trepidation agreed to do that and

it went from there. It was while I

was a prison chaplain that I got

involved with Pillars, a charity

for children of prisoners, because

my husband, Ray, and I were

nominated to be the kaumatua

for Pillars.

Did you ever expect to be doing

it for 33 years?

No, I didn’t. I had a few times

thought I would retire but I had

a project I really wanted to get

established and that was for

Tukutuku panels to be put up in

the prison chapel, specifically the

ones that are called the stairway

to heaven. It seemed to me the

chapel was very mono-cultural

and I thought it should reflect

something of the lives of the

women who worshipped in there

as well. I used to say to the prison

– because there was often difficulty

with finance – if you want

to get rid of me, get the panels

done, I’ll leave then (laughs). The

day the panels went up, that’s the

day I retired. I have to give credit

to Father Jim Consedine. He invited

me to consider chaplaincy,

he is the one who supported

prison chaplaincy in Christchurch,

and he was prison chaplain

himself for many years.

Do you miss it?

I do miss it, I miss the women.

I am a kaiwhakamana, who are

mainly Maori elders, and the

Government set up a scheme

for elders to be able to visit any

prison in the country and support

their people. That system

means these elders are available

on request or available to visit the

prison, and meet with people, so

I will go back as kaiwhakamana.

SIBLINGS:

Both Miriama

and Ward

Kamo work in

television.

Is there anything that has really

stuck with you during your

work?

The care that was extended

to me. That’s what I found in

the prison, the majority of the

women would care for each other,

then staff do the same. There

were times where I asked myself

who was ministering who. It matured

me, expanded my thinking

and expanded my heart.

And you live near Little River

don’t you?

I live in Birdlings Flat, we

recycled a house off the red zone

from Burwood and set it up on

a property my husband had inherited.

We lived at Birdlings Flat

before our first child was born,

and when we realised schools

and doctors weren’t that close,

we bought in Brighton. We lived

there right up until the earthquake

meant we had to move

back to Birdlings. I love it here.

And one of your daughters,

Miriama Kamo, is quite a

familiar face for many Kiwis.

She is, we’ve got used to it. She

is very good at what she does,

what you see on screen is Miriama

as she is. That is the person

that she is and that’s what we’re

proud of.

Did you ever think when she

was young that she would be

fronting shows such as Sunday

and Kiwi Living?

No (laughs). Miriama’s shy.

Most people won’t believe that.

She was so shy that she wouldn’t

talk and she would hide behind

my skirt if anyone said hello to

her.

What do your other children

do?

We’ve got five – the oldest, our

son Ward, is on Native Affairs.

Our eldest daughter Michaela

works in Tauranga for the Bay

So what brought you up to

Christchurch?

That was my big OE! A

girlfriend and I were going to

go overseas, but we hadn’t seen

much of New Zealand so we

started off in Queenstown. Then

my mother said we want you in

Christchurch (because they had

moved there) for your 21st. So the

very next day after my 21st we

went to a nightclub/coffee

bar. And here was this musician

who owned it and that was the

end of it. A friend invited us

to meet him there on a Friday

with Papanui resident Oliver Davidson,

was chosen to represent New Zealand in

the World Championships of Performing

Arts in Los Angeles.

The competition often referred to

as the official “talent Olympics,” is an

opportunity for aspiring performers from

all over the world to showcase their skills

in front of established entertainers and

win scholarships to popular arts schools.

The trip came as a surprise to Hunt, 25,

of Sydenham, who sent in a “last minute”

video of herself singing to the audition

panel before being chosen as one of about

24 to travel to the United States.

“This is my chance to see if I am really

good enough to keep going with this as

a career or leave it as a hobby and find a

real job,” Hunt said.

She said the competition will be a

chance for her to reunite her passion in

performing arts

after what has

been a “rough

few years” since

graduating

from NASDA

in 2012.

In October

2015, Hunt’s

partner at

the time and

best friend

died suddenly

after battling

depression.

A soldier

who served in

Afghanistan,

Hunt said he

was someone

who put others first, thoughtful, generous

and caring.

“I love talking about him because he

was a really awesome guy. He was funny,

always made me laugh. He was very

giving. He would give the shirt off his

back to somebody else he wouldn’t even

know,” she said.

But she said his battle overcame him

and hoped now he was in a better place.

“It kind of hindered performing . . . I

was too depressed and too sad to even

want to do anything with music,” she said.

But now after a break from the arts and

finding love again, Hunt said the future is

looking better and the competition is the

perfect opportunity for the next step in

achieving her goals.

“I want to get my passion back for it

and hopefully this will be a way to move

forward,” she said.

While over in Los Angeles, Hunt will

visit her “dream place” of Disneyland

where she said she has always wanted

to work dressed up as a character for

children.

As well as performing, Hunt also

combines her other passion photography

with music, often taking photos for

NASDA, and is currently a freelance

photographer while she decides on job

options.

She will need to raise about $10,000 for

the trip and is looking to hold a number

of fundraisers including a quiz nights,

raffles and using her talents to put on a

show.

Gardening

Work on ways to retain moisture

JANUARY IS possibly the most

challenging month in the garden

with high temperatures, dry soils

and holidays away.

Together these factors can create

major problems in the garden. So

careful planning and proactive

measures are needed to ensure

your garden survives the height of

summer.

The possibility of a wet summer

is a cherished thought for many

keen gardeners although others

may not agree!

In theory, this is the most

productive month of the year for

summer vegetables, not only do

they grow rapidly with the higher

temperatures, but flavours are often

enhanced. Sustaining adequate

soil moisture is the real challenge.

Watering in the cooler hours and

mulching will help.

With quick maturing salad vege

such as dwarf beans, radish, and

lettuce, continue new plantings

throughout January into early

February.

All this growth takes from the

soil so continue adding compost

around existing plants and incorporating

the organic matter into

existing soil before new plantings.

It’s the main harvest time for

ADDING MORE lawn to

your property might not be on

your wish list, but how about

groundcovers?

You don’t need to mow them,

they’re often fragrant, some have

flowers, and if you choose the

right ones you can eat them as

well.

Instead of using a paved or

kerbed edging, plant pratia

between a garden bed and the

lawn.

It’s a bit rampant but it stays

low, doesn’t climb up other

plants, and will make a lovely,

soft transition from the garden

to the grass.

It often gets mown over but

has usually managed to grow

back by the time the lawns get

many stone fruit such as; apricots,

cherries, nectarines, peaches and

plums. Early season apples such as

gravenstein begin to ripen towards

the end of the month. Berry fruits

are now at the end of cropping and

you can remove old canes and tie

up new season ones.

Some varieties of strawberries

will continue cropping through

January, extending the traditional

strawberry season. Plants will begin

sending out ‘runners’ towards

the end of the month. Allow these

to develop into next year’s plants

or where not required, cut off and

remove.

Displays of summer flowering

annuals should be at their peak

in January with gorgeous displays

of colour in the garden. While

these plants love the hot summer

weather, they still require regular

watering, preferably in the cooler

early morning.

With newly-planted fruit trees,

ensure they are regularly irrigated

to help establish a strong root system.

This is particularly important

with young citrus trees.

A difficult month for all but

the ‘hardiest’ roses. Many varieties

produce a limited number of

blooms during the height of summer

before an outstanding display

in early autumn.

Closely observe specimens in

your rose garden that appear quite

robust at this time of year; use this

as the basis for future plantings.

Flower carpet roses are seemingly

impervious to difficult weather

conditions, as is the bush rose

iceberg. Recommence fertiliser

applications in mid-February.

Continue to train climbing roses

where you desire, removing all

other surplus growth.

Maximising the use of water

and keeping up general gardening

maintenance will help keep your

garden healthy and extend your

harvest.

Although there is some debate

about when to water and when to

not, the general consensus is that

watering at the start of the day and

in the evening reduces the amount

of water loss from transpiration

and evaporation and plant roots

have plenty of time to receive the

vital moisture. Applying much

around your trees, shrubs, roses

and vegetables will also help retain

soil moisture. Remove any weeds

you see pop up as they too waste

water. Plant something else in

their place to fill the space.

done again.

Plants that have adapted to

grow low to the ground are often

very tough, and rapid colonisers

of bare ground or poor soil.

Vigorous ground cover plants

can soon suppress weed growth

and many are evergreen or longflowering.

Candidates include:

• Ajuga reptans (Catlin’s

Giant), a semi-evergreen

groundcover with glossy foliage

and blue flowers.

• Bergenia cordifolia has

Plenty of museum choice in London

• By Mike Yardley

IF YOU wanted to step inside

one of London’s museums every

day, it would take you over nine

months to knock them all off –

even though many of the individual

collections are so massive,

that a single day would barely do

justice to them.

But beyond the big-hitters,

like the British Museum, the Tate

Modern and the V& A, London

is loaded with a cornucopia

of lesser-trafficked museums

including a generous dollop of the

quirky and macabre.

Start with the Museum of

London, which is free to enter

and sweeps you through the

capital’s turbulent history in style.

Even for a jaded traveller, it’s very

digestible dip into prehistoric

London and 2000 years of rolling

history.

The museum is currently commemorating

the 350th anniversary

of the Great Fire of London,

with a special, high-impact

interactive exhibition.

Step into Pudding Lane and

see what life was like at the time

before walking into the bakery

where the fire started and see how

the flames of the inferno consumed

the city.

A truly searing experience is

to head underground into the

Churchill War Rooms, the secret

headquarters for the British government

throughout World War 2

and where Churchill directed his

forces to defeat Hitler.

Highlights include the Map

Room; Churchill’s working and

sleeping quarters; and the transatlantic

Telephone Room with a

scrambled phone line direct to

the White House.

Exposed ceiling panels give you

a glimpse of the 3m-thick reinforced

concrete slab, designed to

protect the Cabinet rooms from

German bombing raids during

the Blitz.

The furnishings, maps, historical

documents and artefacts exude

a frozen-in-time appearance,

as if Churchill has momentarily

stepped out.

Stellar display items include

STRATEGY:

Winston

Churchill’s

World War 2

underground

headquarters

are a truly

searing

experience.

the original front door to No 10

Downing St used by Churchill,

his bowler hat and half-smoked,

heavily chewed La Corona cigar.

Also worth a muse is the Museum

of Brands, Packaging and

Advertising, in Notting Hill, is a

smash-hit with nostalgia buffs,

boasting 12,000 original consumer

items, be they packets of cereal,

tins of baked beans or sachets

of custard powder, from Victorian

times onwards, which have

mostly been decommissioned.

The Old Operating Theatre, in

London Bridge, is a one-of-a-kind

experience – the only remaining

19th-century British operating

theatre in England, where you can

watch demonstrations of surgical

techniques and volunteer to be

“operated on”.

In the 1800s, this old theatre

was the last hope for the deathly

sick at St Thomas’s Hospital. Invasive

surgeries such as amputations

were horrific ordeals.

Apparently a skilled surgeon

could perform the procedure

in under a minute, but novices

would hack and chisel away at

mangled limbs for much longer.

A museum-worthy hotel of celebrated

acclaim is The Dorchester.

The catchphrase that emblazons

their souvenir coffee mugs sums it

up in a mouthful. “I’d rather be at

The Dorchester.” A word-perfect

phrase that encapsulates the sense

of escapist grandeur and pampering,

that waits you at this illustrious

landmark establishment.

This grand dame in Mayfair,

considered by many as the ultimate

bucket list hotel destination,

rightly warrants its gilt-edged

reputation.

Stay in style at the Dorchester

•From page 29

If you really want to add some

fairy-dust to your London getaway,

even though it costs an arm

and a leg, splash out on a night at

this starry-eyed establishment.

It’s such a magical venue to

celebrate a special occasion or an

anniversary.

The hotel recently undertook

a multi-million dollar makeover

to its guestrooms, an exercise

in designer ballet, whereby the

timeless glamour is preserved and

fused with contemporary touches

– without going completely

gadget-crazy.

Flouncy and frumpy furnishings

have given way to lighter,

more airy spaces, channelling the

English country living aesthetic.

I spent a night in a recently

refurbished Park Suite, a glorious

expanse of luxury, now much

lighter with the previously dark

furnishings stripped back. The

masterly attention to detail is

exceptional. Three Michelin star

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester

celebrates French dining in

excelsis, while China Tang offers

traditional Cantonese cuisine.

Opened a decade by Hong

Kong restaurateur, Sir David

Tang, this enchantingly exotic

restaurant is done up in a 1930s’

Shanghai style.

ELEGANCE: The Dorchester

has recently had a multimillion

dollar makeover

- timeless glamour is

preserved.

For hearty, inventive British

cuisine, head to the boldly-decorated

The Grill, while The Bar is

an escapist cocoon of seduction,

complete with private booths and a

staggering menu of bespoke drinks

and mixology. But my favourite

public space is the sweeping opulence

of The Promenade, the central

living room of the Dorchester,

a people-watching paradise while

partaking in one of the five daily

sittings of afternoon tea.

TIMELESS: Check out all

the famous products at the

Museum of Brands, Packaging

and Advertising.

FAST FACTS

•Unfailingly welcoming,

engaging and attentive –

this hotel embodies the

highest service values.

In spite of being such a

seriously posh property,

The Dorchester staff

are anything but stiff -

pleasingly disarming and

personable, no matter who

you are. From royals, rock

stars and passing glitterati

to travellers seeking a taste

of the holiday high-life, 53

Park Lane is quite simply

one of the finest hotel

addresses in the world

offering unforgettable

encounters, whether it

be for afternoon tea or

Dig out your 80s wardrobe

Annabelle Dick looks at this

year’s fashion trends

THINK GRACE Jones, think

Madonna, think Prince.

The 80s are back with a

vengeance, whether you like it

or not.

This year will see the comeback

of chic 80s wear – even

designer Marc Jacobs recently

held an exclusive party aptlythemed

“Chic 80s” in ode to

the 2017 trend.

That coincided nicely with

his resort ‘17 collection that

features ruffles galore and coats

more embellished than a Bowie

number.

Even reality TV star and

fashion icon Kim Kardashian is

up with the play – she was seen

sporting an 80s shoulder-pad

blazer only last week.

Several designers and fashion

forecasters have said 2017 is the

year of frivolity. Bell sleeves,

flared trousers and ruffled

tops are all expected to make

a strong feature on this year’s

fashion scene.

This year’s Pantone Fashion

Colour Report, which features

the top 10 shades seen on the

runway, back up those predictions.

The palette is bright and

vivid – just like the 80s.

In 2016, off-shoulder

dresses topped the list of

women’s best

performing fashion

trends. Along with

flounces and Bardot

styles, they warmed

women up to what’s

going to be an even

bigger year for sleeve

shapes. Leg-ofmutton,

flared, bell,

extra-long and

puffed are definitely

styles worth experimenting

with.

Power dressing is also back in

fashion too so incorporate the

trend into your work wardrobe

by pulling out the shoulder

pad blazer and pairing it with

tailored slacks or wide-leg

trousers.

In a day and age where less is

more, people have been moving

towards a minimalistic look

with classic tailoring, muted

colours and high-quality fabrics.

Grace Jones

The 80s, however, were an

era for bright colours, oversized

clothes and accessorised outfits

due to the pop culture boom.

But don’t let the bold 80s

trend ruffle you the wrong

way, find ways to adapt

certain pieces instead of

jumping in head first into

the trend – no one wants

to look like they’ve just

stepped out of a Girls Just

Want To Have Fun video

clip.

Pair a bell-sleeved

blouse with boyfriend

jeans as a subtle nod to

the 80s, or try a faux fur

coat on those chilly days.

Consider flared trousers,

wide belts, embellished and

embroided jackets and metallics

too. They’re expected to be

big on the catwalk and streets

in 2017.

After seasons of body-con

dresses, cut-out wear and athleisure,

this year you can relax.

Be playful with your outfits,

mix and match colours and

textures, but most importantly,

dress in what makes you feel

good.

FUN: Try playing with chunky belts and embroided clothing for a

touch of the 80s trend.

Fill the grid so that every row,

every column and every 3x3

box contains the digits 1 to 9.

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.

dabbling in fitness and have

some experience with jogging or running. For both groups the main goal will be to finish the event, enjoy

the experience but above all use the 10 week programme as a means to to improve your overall health,

fitness and quality of life.

To achieve this goal you need to

develop some awareness around the

basic requirements of exercising for

health and fitness. First and foremost

this has to do with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To improve

your level of health and fitness you will

need to aim for 4 sessions per week. 2

or 3 sessions per week will only maintain

what you have and 1 session per week is

definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can

still talk. If you can’t talk you are going

too fast and you are likely to come to a

grinding halt sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are

written as a guide only. If you are concerned about

your health at any stage please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

If you have never run or jogged before,

we recommended that you alternate

brisk walking with jogging as indicated

in the schedule. Be aware that jogging

is different from running. When jogging,

you go at a pace which is only a fraction

faster than a brisk walk, your feet stay

close to the ground and the rhythm is

that of a slow dance. This is a technique,

once mastered, which will enable you

to jog for longer periods of time (for

example, the whole 14 km distance…. )

In Brief

GILLOOLY TO US COLLEGE

Former Burnside High School

student Toby Gillooly has secured a

four-year basketball scholarship at

New Mexico Highlands University in

Las Vegas, New Mexico. The 18-yearold,

who finished secondary school

last year, has been a standout player

for Burnside and Canterbury age

group teams in recent years. Gillooly

was also part of the Canterbury

Rams team which finished at the top

of the round-robin in the National

Basketball League. He leaves for the

United States next week to play for

New Mexico in the NCAA Rocky

Mountain Athletic Conference.

He hopes to secure a professional

contract in the Australian Basketball

League following college.

BIG TOUR FOR CYCLIST

Christchurch’s Alex Frame will take

on one of the world’s top cyclists

next month. The 23-year-old will go

up against current Tour De France

champion Chris Froome, who will

ride for Team Sky at the Herald Sun

Tour in Victoria, Australia. The

strong international field will also

include Colombia’s Esteban Chaves,

who finished second overall in last

year’s Giro d’Italia. Frame will be

part of the six-man JLT-Condor

team which will compete in the

tour from February 1-5. Frame

finished in a disappointing 18th

place at the national men’s road

race championship in Napier last

weekend, but can now turn his

attention to riding with some of the

world’s best in Australia.

DRAGONS PLAY-OFF CHANCE

The Canterbury United Dragons can

move into a play-off spot if they beat

Southern United in the on Sunday.

The Dragons currently sit fith in the

Last weekend, the Dragons secured

a dramatic 3-2 win over Tasman

HIROKI MIYA has achieved

a top three finish at one of

Australasia’s biggest junior golf

tournaments.

The 16-year-old from Russley

was one of four Canterbury

players to make the trip to Melbourne

last week to compete at

the Victorian Junior Masters at

the Churchill Park and Waverley

golf clubs.

Rounds of 73, 70, 76 and 71

were good enough for Miya to

finish in a tie for third.

“I was really happy with the

week, but the conditions were

tough to adjust to. It was over

30 degrees every day. That’s the

first tournament I’ve played

in Australia and the heat was

nothing like what I’m used to,”

said Miya.

There were also promising

results for fellow Canterbury

players Dominic Brettkelly, of

the Hororata Golf Club, Kazauma

Kobori, of Rangiora, and

Tom Parker, of Christchurch.

Brettkelly finished seventh

overall while Kobori and Parker

finished in the top 25.

Past champions in Melbourne

include current world No 1

Jason Day who won the tournament

in 2005 and was also

world junior amateur champion

at the time. Two-time Australian

Open winner and former

top 20 player Aaron Baddeley

also won the event in 1998.

Some big names have

competed in the event without

tasting success. The 2013

Masters champion and former

world No 1 Adam Scott

finished in the top five at the

tournament four years in a row

from the age of 15.

“I was aware of the history

of the event because they had

winners near the putting green.

E-Class spearheads Mercedes-Benz charge

• By Ross Kiddie

LUXURY VEHICLE sales figures

for 2016 once again show the

dominance Mercedes-Benz has in

that part of the market. It finished

in No 1 position with 20 per cent

growth over the previous year.

A lot of that can be attributed to

the extensive line-up within the

Mercedes-Benz brand, and the raft

of new models which have landed

in the last couple of years.

One of the most recent new

arrivals is the E-Class – a series

which could loosely be termed

the mainstream model within

the brand, taking into account,

it also claimed the New Zealand

Motoring Writers’ Guild Car of

the Year Award for 2016.

The E-Class lands here in

multiple specification levels with

several engine options – diesel

and petrol – the range starts at

$99,900 for a 2-litre petrol-powered

model.

The evaluation car sits more

towards the top end of the series

at $149,800, and its 3-litre, V6

turbocharged diesel engine

is rated by Mercedes-Benz at

190kW. In true diesel fashion the

turbo boost helps to produce a

magnificent 620Nm of torque.

Bear in mind the compression

ignition engine was invented by

German automotive pioneer Karl

MERCEDES-BENZ E350D: New Zealand Car of the Year for 2016.

Rudolf Diesel, and German engine

manufacturers have worked hard

over the years to produce high

horsepower, quiet running, clean

burning engines with an emphasis

on fuel efficiency.

The 2987cc unit in the E-Class

impresses in all these areas.

Some of the statistics provide

interesting reading, the E-Class

in this form will make 100km/h

from a standstill in 5.9sec and

will scamper to 120km/h from

80km/h in 3.8sec.

It will also return a 5.6-litre

per 100km/h (50mpg) combined

cycle average, sipping fuel at the

rate of just 5l/100km (56mpg)

at 100km/h (engine speed just

1200rpm).

That’s good reading for a car

which carries a bit of bulk but

that is offset by the clever engine

manufacture and sophistication

of the nine-speed automatic

gearbox which is finding its way

across Mercedes-Benz badged

product.

The transmission is a stunner,

so smooth are the changes

it’s almost like there are no

changes bar the needle shift on

the tachometer. Of course, there’s

a driver selectable function

through steering-wheel-mounted

paddles, but I never used them

a lot, far preferring to let the

gearbox do its own thinking, the

engine/transmission combination

never disappoints.

That sums up the car in total,

it is beautifully built with high

quality trim materials and an

inviting interior in terms of

appointment. The test car was

finished in brown leather, the

entire ambience is clean and spacious.

All seats provide sumptuous

occupant comfort, also allowing

for a lot of onboard space.

More importantly are the number

of safety features built into

the E-Class. They are way too

numerous and comprehensive to

detail, but to say the latest from

the Mercedes-Benz factory would

be one of the world’s safest cars.

For comfort and convenience

there’s a multitude of features and

options. One of my passengers

referred to the giant on-screen

display as looking like two iPads

joined together, the graphics are

intense and can be structured to

suit the driver’s preference and/or

driving style.

I like the display as it sits in

sport mode, the colours are vivid

and the readouts easy to understand.

There is also head-up display

offering the driver constant

visual interpretation of speed and

other key elements.

It’s fair to say the E-Class is a

As its price would suggest, and

given Mercedes-Benz’s reputation

no surprise then that driving the

The biggest range of vehicles

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

E-Class is a step towards luxury

rather than sporty. The driver

and occupants are pampered,

especially in terms of ride comfort,

the air suspension is just

glorious, even riding on low profile

tyres the ride is still sublime.

Bear in mind, though, that lower

grade models don’t get the air setup

as standard. I can also report

that on a Port Hills/plains loop

the E-Class handles delightfully,

it has controlled balance and

I’m a big formula one fan, and

with the success Mercedes-Benz

has had in 2016, and in the last

that is also contributing to offthe-showroom-floor

sales. With

the impetus the brand has had in

recent years, I don’t expect that to

change any time soon.

calm, cool oasis

If your home has become more of a steaming sauna rather than

an oasis of cool, these intelligent tips will help turn the tables

for a more comfortable climate.

PRoTEcT WiNDoWs

Prevent the harsh summer rays from

penetrating through windows, which bake

its occupants with reflective window film.

This provides an instant and simple solution

if planting trees or installing awnings aren’t an

option.

clEVER sTRaTEGiEs

Shutting windows and pulling the drapes

on hot days can go a long way to keeping

temperatures comfortable for when you

return home at the end of the working

day.

FaN FiRsT

Use fans as your first port of call instead of

immediately reaching for the air conditioning

remote. Fans use less electricity and can also

be used in conjunction with air conditioning

to further help circulate the air.

THERmosTaT sENsE

Setting your air conditioning system too cool

and you’ll risk increasing your electricity bill.

setting it to somewhere in the mid-twenties

will keep the climate comfortable without

you freezing or overheating.

Room BY Room

Save energy and money by simply cooling

the one or two rooms you mainly inhabit.

as in winter when we aim to keep the

heat from escaping, in summer it’s equally

important to keep the cool air contained,

so make sure all doors and windows are

adequately sealed. A cost-effective method

is by installing weather strips available from

your local hardware store.

GREaT oUTDooRs

When the heat of the day passes, your

backyard is the ideal location to hang out

and keep cool. Cook over the barbeque and

make the most of dining al fresco while you

can.

maiNTaiN YoUR aPPliaNcEs

Keep fans, air vents and filters free of dust

and bacteria by cleaning them regularly. Keep

the outdoor part of your air conditioning

unit shielded from the sun by creating some

shade with clever plantings.

BUYER GUiDEliNEs

look out for the highest star rating for

energy efficiency to save you money in the

long run. Also consider the size of the room

you’ll be cooling to ensure you get the right

size that will be capable of getting the job

done.

coloUR sENsE

Believe it or not, painting the exterior walls

and roof a lighter colour will keep the inside

cooler by reflecting the heat.

REPlacE WiNDoWs

If you’re undergoing renovations it’s the

perfect time to replace aluminium frames, as

they conduct heat. Opt for a design which

allows for the maximum allowance for air to

circulate.

NOTIFICATION OF RESTRICTED

FIRE SEASON

22(2) OF THE FOREST AND RURAL

FIRES ACT 1977)

CHRISTCHURCH CITY RURAL FIRE

AREA INCLUDING BANKS PENINSULA

Notice is hereby given that a Restricted Fire Season

is imposed by the Christchurch City Council over the

rural area for which the Council is the Fire Authority,

for the period midnight Wednesday 11 January 2017

until further notice.

The rural area for which the Council is the Fire Authority

under the Forest and Rural Fires Act 1977 covers all of

the district administered by the Council as territorial

authority pursuant to the Local Government Act 2002

(i.e. the City of Christchurch) except:

The Christchurch, Brooklands, New Brighton,

Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors

Bay, Little River and Akaroa Urban Fire Districts

established under Section 26 of the Fire Service

Act 1975; and

• State areas and any associated Fire Safety

Margin administered by the Department of

Conservation.

Please Note:

1. The restriction does not apply to barbeques

(in enclosed containers) lit on a property serviced

by a domestic water supply.

2. During a restricted fire season it is an offence to

light any fire in the open air unless a permit has

been obtained from the Christchurch City Council.

Applications for permits may be made to the

Christchurch City Council, Civic Offices, 53 Hereford

Street, Christchurch (telephone 941-8999). Please

allow at least 3 working days prior to burn date to

allow for time for site inspection and issue of permit.

3. Any permit issued is not a legal defence to claims

for damage which may arise from the fire. The

responsibility for its control and the liability for

any damage which might arise lie with the person

lighting the fire.

4. The continuation of the restriction will be constantly

reviewed and the restriction may be lifted or extended

depending on the fire risk. Any such alteration will be

publicly notified.

POP SURREALISM

Lucy Eglington, accompanied

have work in this exhibition.

Synonymous 40 years ago with

‘lowbrow art,’ pop surrealism

in the 21st century has emerged

as a movement in which ideas

about our natural and social

environment merge with the

personal perceptions of the artist

to produce fascinating images,

which challenge our world view,

but are visually seductive.

creative expression. Entry to this
