Family member of well known

businessman nabbed in raid

• By Andrew King

CANNABIS, methamphetamine,

firearms and cash were found on

the rural property yesterday of a

family member of a high-profile

deceased businessman.

Police raided the property

about 20km south of Christchurch

yesterday morning and

took the middle aged man into

custody for questioning.

He was interviewed for

several hours by detectives at

the Christchurch central police

station and is expected to face

charges relating to possession of

cannabis for supply, cultivating

cannabis, possession of methamphetamine,

and firearms charges.

He is scheduled to appear in

the Christchurch District Court

he said.

Police also seized about

$20,000 in cash believed to be

linked with drugs.

The deceased businessman

whom the arrested man is

closely related to was well known

throughout New Zealand.

He was also a benefactor for

many charities and organisations,

both nationally and in

WOULD YOU pay a fuel tax

to help pay for the earthquakedamaged

roads?

That’s the idea city councillor

Aaron Keown has floated

(see page 7) to help offset the

massive cost that continues

to lie ahead for both the

Government and the city

council, and in turn you, the

ratepayer.

But whether Keown’s idea

gets much traction is unlikely.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel says

the council will probably wait

and see what the Auckland

Council does over a similar

idea.

In sport (page 50) we reveal

the Canterbury Strokeplay

Open women’s golf champion

is . . . wait for it – aged 10.

The tournament was held at

Templeton over the weekend

and Jeong Hyun Lee carded 71,

76 and 73 to win by a stroke.

Amazing stuff and no doubt

we’ll hear a lot more about

this young girl and her golfing

exploits over the next few years.

Watch out Lydia Ko.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the arrival of New Zealand’s

first steam fire engine on January 24, 1865. It was

named Extinguisher. On the same date in 1974, the 10th

Commonwealth Games opened at QE II Park, one of

the greatest sporting events in New Zealand’s history.

Visitors included the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh,

the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne. The following

day Richard Tayler won the 10,000m in games record

time. It was the first live colour TV coverage of a

major race. Tayler was honoured as 1974 Sportsman

of the Year. On January 26 Christchurch students

Mark Treffers and Janie Parkhouse won gold medals in

swimming events.

WANTED: APPRENTICE PANEL BEATERS

Canterbury has a shortage of panel beaters

prompting calls for more apprentices to get

into the trade. Collision Repair Association

general manager Neil Pritchard said in spite of

an increase in cars with collision prevention

technology, the number of vehicles on the road

was increasing the risk of crashes. “Right now we

need 10 new panel beater apprentices to enter the

Canterbury industry to answer the demand – we

are getting about half that number currently.”

He said the industry had launched a marketing

campaign and scholarship programme to help

recruit.

Nude photos of man put in letter boxes

• By Andrew King

DON’T LET anyone take

nude photos of you.

That’s the advice of truck

driver Peter Black who is now

the embarrassment of his

neighbourhood.

The 51-year-old had personal

photos of himself, with his

name, phone number, address

and a list of sexual services with

prices distributed around the

Islington area where he lives.

Famous English outlaw

becomes Robyn Hood

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MEET THE new face of one

of medieval’s most timeless

English tales.

Sophia Benter-Lynch will put

a feminine twist on the legend

of Robin Hood, playing the

heroic outlaw herself.

Having just left Cashmere

High School, it will be the

first major role of the aspiring

performer’s career.

The Riccarton House

grounds will transform

into Sherwood Forest as the

tale of Robin Hood and her

adventures is brought to the

city.

The new adaption was created

by director Daniel Pengelly

for the city council’s Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre production.

While the classic characters

such as the infamous Sheriff of

Nottingham and Robin Hood’s

love interest Lady Marian will

still appear in the show, audiences

can expect to see several

makeovers.

Benter-Lynch, 18, said most

of the story remains the same

but all characters’ genders have

been switched so roles such as

Marian is played by a man.

“I’m pretty sure I know who

has done it and I have passed

that information onto police,”

he said yesterday.

Mr Black ended a relationship

recently.

On Friday he received a call

from a neighbour, extremely

upset she had received a flyer

offering sexual services from

Mr Black.

She thought he had put the

flyer in her letter box.

“I was p****d off, angry and

Nick

Cheesebrough

(left), 19, who

will play Marian

describes

his reinvented

character as a

buff jockey sort

of guy with a few insecurities.

He said the show was inspired

by 1991 film Robin Hood:

Prince of Thieves starring Alan

Rickman and Kevin Costner.

Other significant characters

are Carrie Green as the Sheriff

of Nottingham and Millie

embarrassed at the situation,”

he said.

He spoke with police on

Monday, who are now making

inquiries into who has made

and distributed them.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

said police are still trying to

determine how far the flyers

have been delivered.

The simple message here is

don’t send nude pictures or allow

others to take them of you,”

Senior Sergeant Stills said.

Hanford as Friar Tuck.

Benter-Lynch said it is an

empowering play for familiesespecially

those who take their

daughters to the show.

“Even though Robin Hood

is a young woman she is still

great at leading this army. People

actually follow her and it is

a great message to the youth of

today,” she said.

Benter-Lynch’s interest in

acting was first ignited when

she became obsessed with the

film The Sound of Music at

eight-years-old.

Mr Black agreed. “I won’t

let anyone take nudes of me

again,” he said.

In another recent case,

photos of a woman were distributed

in Taranaki. Gaylyne

Joy Fowler, 49, pleaded guilty

to a charge of objectionable

behaviour in January.

She printed nude photos of

a woman who was having an

affair with her husband and

distributed them around Hawera

Fire Station car park.

PLAYING

THE

OUTLAW:

Sophia

Benter-Lynch

is playing

the new face

of English

legend Robin

Hood. ​

“I was like they are on stage

they having so much fun singing

and dancing and it is just

like isn’t this just a dream job

to be able to have fun for the

rest of your life,” she said.

Since then she has worked

with The Court Youth Company,

performed in high school

productions and competed in

the Stage Challenge.

Robin Hood will run from

February 1 to 19.

SCHOOL SITE TESTING

Redcliffs School could know where

its new buildings will be placed

within months. Tonkin & Taylor

has been analysing the land in

Redcliffs Park to find out the best

place to rebuild the school. Ministry

of Education head of education

infrastructure service Kim Shannon

said staff dug eight test pits last

week to enable detailed geotechnical

and soil testing. She said the work

was supervised by representatives

from Underground Overground,

Ngati Wheke and Ngai Tuahuriri.

Tonkin & Taylor would prepare

a report as to where the best site

would be, she said. “We expect to

receive this in the next couple of

months.”

CAMERAS INSTALLED

Summit Road Society has installed

two webcams on the roof of the

Christchurch Gondola building in

the Port Hills. One camera faces

east along the Port Hills towards

Godley Head, while the other faces

west towards the Sign of the Kiwi

and Gebbies Pass. Photos would be

taken every 10min so people can

see the changing weather so they

could plan their visit. To have a

look, visit www.summitroadsociety.

Hills webcam button. The webcams

were supported by the city council,

Christchurch Gondola and Prime

Security.

INTERSECTION OPTIONS

Three options are being looked

at for changes to the St Andrews

Hill, Bridle Path and Main Rds

intersection. It comes after

residents reported difficulties

turning right onto Bridle Path Rd

from St Andrews Hill Rd, the

speed of vehicles approaching,

queuing and lack of visibility.

They predicted those issues

before the intersection was built.

The first option would see traffic

signals installed at the bottom of

St Andrews Hill Rd, and pre-signals

on Bridle Path Rd, while the

second would be to prevent all right

turns out of Bridle Path Rd onto

Main Rd. The third option was to

do nothing. Public consultation on

the options is on the city council’s

website.

The Daggs, who are expecting

The centre, which had previously

The owners were struck a

further blow after their insurance

company went into liquidation.

Co Kids was forced to leave the

city, but promised parents it

would return.

Said Israel Dagg: “With our

Anti-graffiti shields for monuments

• By Caitlin Miles

TWO HISTORIC monuments

targeted by taggers will be made

graffiti proof.

The New Brighton War Memorial

and Woolston Borough

Monument will have seethrough

panels put

around them to stop

tagging.

However, the soon

to be opened earthquake

memorial

Darren

wall in the central

Moses

city won’t have the

panels.

Spokesman for Government

agency Otakaro Ltd, Michael

Parkin, which is overseeing the

central city rebuild, said the

memorial wall would not need

the panels. He said the wall was

designed for people to touch and

will be monitored.

The site has been subject to

crime prevention through environmental

design review and

the memorial wall will be well

lit and be monitored by security

cameras,” he said.

City council capital delivery

community manager Darren

Moses said because of previous

vandalism, the war memorial

will have poly-glass panels put

around it to protect it.

“As with the Woolston

DEFACED: To stop graffiti like this from covering the Woolston Borough Monument and New

Brighton War Memorial, poly-glass panels will be installed over the exterior.

Borough Monument, the New

Brighton War Memorial is continually

tagged or engraved with

people’s initials. The panels will

protect the war memorial,” Mr

Moses said.

The panels are clear with a

film over top of them, which can

be replaced if they are defaced,

keeping the monuments clean.

The panels can be removed during

ceremonies.

New Brighton Returned and

Services Association manager

and secretary Garry House said

he was thankful the city council

decided to do this.

“It’s very important to us

and to the community that it is

looked after and we do support

the city council for the work on

it,” Mr House said.

It is expected to cost $25,000

for the design and to fabricate

and install poly-glass around

the memorial. The installation

of the panels is expected to happen

next month.

The Woolston Borough

Monument, on the corner of

Richardson Tce and Ferry Rd

will get similar panels to preserve

and protect it.

It commemorates when

Woolston became a borough

on July 27, 1893. It’s made of

Oamaru stone with a light stand

on top. A stonemason sanded

down the monument to remove

the graffiti to get it ready to install

the panels at a cost of $550.

The panels will be installed

next month, once some remaining

dye on the bottom on the

monument has been removed.

It is expected to cost $23,000

to complete the project.

There are no further plans

to install similar poly-glass

panels on any other monuments

around the city.

Fuel tax mooted for Canty

• By Bridget Rutherford

RENT TO OWN

LAWNMOWERS

Rent to own

225 Linwood Ave

389 7742

IDEA: A regional fuel tax for Canterbury could pay for the repair of its

earthquake damaged roads, city councillors say.

THE IDEA to implement a fuel

tax in a bid to fund the repair

of the region’s earthquake

damaged roads has been floated.

City councillor Aaron Keown

asked Mayor Lianne Dalziel

last week if she would consider

asking the Government if Canterbury

could have a regional

fuel tax.

It comes after Auckland

Mayor Phil Goff asked for a 10c

per litre fuel tax for Auckland

to plug the $4 million funding

gap it has for a list of transport

projects over the next decade.

However, Ms Dalziel said

she would be interested to see

what happened with Auckland’s

request before making any decisions

on asking the Government

to look at Canterbury.

Cr Keown said the tax could

pay for the repairs of Canterbury’s

earthquake damaged

roads, so it did not strain the

city council’s budget.

He said once the roads were

repaired, they could re-look at

whether the tax was still needed.

“You’d pay a bit extra for your

fuel to have really smooth roads

that work.”

Former city council infrastructure,

transport and

environment committee chairman

Phil Clearwater said he

mooted the idea twice last year

in informal discussions with

councillors.

“I think a regional fuel tax

does have the potential to bring

additional income for our

council.”

“I agree with the mayor, I think

pursue it if they do.”

$1m going into

new Sumner

car park

• By Annabelle Dick

NEARLY $1 million has been

spent on land to create a new car

park in Sumner.

The city council spent $900,000

on buying two properties on

Nayland St to create a car park for

Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre,

which is currently under construction.

The properties, 31 and 33 Nayland

St, cost one-tenth of the $10

million budget for the centre, on

the corner of Wakefield Ave and

Nayland St.

City council property consultancy

manager Angus Smith said it

bought the two properties to support

its application when applying

for the centre’s resource consent.

The centre includes a new

community centre, library and

museum and is expected to be

completed in April.

The properties will provide

between 20 and 30 car parks, depending

on final design, Mr Smith

said.

Since the Sumner Village Master

Plan was brought in to redevelop

the area, the loss of car parking has

been a contentious issue within the

community.

Yulia recording new live album

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN YULIA Townsend’s

mother passed away last year,

the musician never thought she

would sing again.

She said it broke her into a

million pieces.

But now, the multi-platinum,

best-selling artist is about to

record her new album in front

of a live audience in Ferrymead.

It will be her first major work

in New Zealand for 10 years because

she took a break to have

her two children.

The album will be recorded in

front of a live audience in two

sessions at Ferrymead’s Orange

Studios on February 3 and 4.

A hundred tickets will be

available for the two sessions.

The exclusivity of this event

is comparable to an experience

of Bluff oysters – available to a

select few, first in, first served,”

she said.

The new album, which follows

Into the West and Montage,

will feature five of Townsend’s

original songs. as well as covers

of Lionel Richie and Leonard

Cohen.

She will be joined by guitarist

Hanafi Machirus, Michael

Russell on the trumpet, and

Michael Story on the bass.

Peter Rattray, who recorded

INSPIRED: Yulia Townsend will record her new album in front of a live studio audience next

week, which will be her first major work in a decade.

Yulia’s first self-produced album

while she was at school, will

master this one.

She said it would be different

to her previous music, but

thought her fans would like it.

They are going to come out

and think years down the track,

I may not remember what she

sang, or what she said, but I

will always remember how she

made me feel.”

Townsend said the concerts

would be in part dedicated to

her mother, Galina, who died of

cancer in July.

“I feel it everyday.”

The five songs in the new

album were among about 12 she

wrote in November 2015.

She said it took about two

weeks to write all of them,

which were triggered when she

returned to Christchurch and

reunited with family.

Townsend was born in Russia

and emigrated to Christchurch

with her mother in 2002.

At 18-years-old, she landed a

deal with Sony before becoming

the first female vocalist in the

country to have two back-toback

No 1 hit albums.

Bid to beat

vandals,

arsonists

• By Andrew King

FIRE SERVICE and education bosses

are working together to prevent

vacant schools from being the target

of arsonists.

The campaign is aimed at removing

things such as rubbish bins, outside

furniture and other combustibles

from school sites that opportunist

arsonists use to set fires. There are 25

schools citywide that have either been

earmarked for disposal, further education

purposes or community use as

part of the $1.137 billion Christchurch

Schools Rebuild Programme.

Fire Service’s Bruce Irvine said they

are working with the Ministry of

Education over a prevention plan.

“We have been looking around

the schools for things like rubbish

bins not being stored away correctly,

outside furniture not pushed against

buildings, that sort of thing to try

limit the amount of opportunity,” he

said.

MoE head of education infrastructure

service Kim Shannon said all

schools are vulnerable over summer

because they are generally unoccupied.

“It’s an unfortunate fact that all

schools are potential targets for arson

and vandalism,” she said.

Another bid to fix mill

• By Bridget Rutherford

IT COULD be third time

lucky for Addington’s Woods

Mill buildings as yet another

developer goes to the city

council to get funding to help

repair it.

Loprinzi Properties Ltd has

plans to turn the category 2

historic buildings into a $7.6

million commercial and retail

complex.

The Mill is made up of a fourstorey

building and a two-storey

former grain store building.

They date back to 1886 but have

been empty since the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

They were badly damaged by a

fire, thought to be set by squatters,

in June.

Loprinzi has put in an offer

to buy the Wise St mill, and has

applied for a $900,000 heritage

incentive grant from the city

council to repair it.

The city council will decide today

if it will approve the money

for restoration.

It is not the first time developers

have attempted to restore

and refurbish the site.

In 2012 the city council approved

an incentive grant of

$884,750 to Woods Mill Ltd, a

company set up specifically for

the project.

However, those plans fell

through and the work never

progressed past the planning

stages. The grants were not paid

out to the company.

In 2014 a grant of $900,000

was approved along with

a $500,000 grant from

sightings of a European middleaged

man, wearing a white mask

with a dark balaclava on top.

He was on a red mountain bike,

with a silver helmet, carrying a

black bag and a firearm.

He wore faded jeans, a black

zip-up style polo shirt with a green

T-shirt underneath and gloves.

Development, Woods Mill

Investments. But that

too never eventuated

because the cost of

refurbishing the

mill was higher than

first thought and the

company did not end

up buying it.

The grant is only paid out

once the work is completed.

Loprinzi’s director, Michael

King (left), is a chartered structural

engineer.

He designed the engineering

component of the

building for one of the

previous developers, so is

familiar with the buildings.

Violent

assaults

drop at

Hillmorton

Hospital

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WORK DONE to make

Hillmorton Hospital safer

appears to be working, as the

number of violent assaults has

dropped.

There were 507 physical

assaults reported at the

psychiatric hospital in 2014,

but that dropped to 299 in

2015.

The numbers dropped again

last year, to 198 in the 10 months

to October.

Canterbury District Health

Board mental health service

general manager Toni Gutschlag

said it was a range of initiatives,

rather than any one thing, that

lead to the change.

Those included creating a

calming area and sensory room

for patients in the building,

keeping staff numbers stable so

relationships could build with

patients, and improving the

assessment process.

The changes to the unit so far

have cost $6600, while another

$3 million has been set aside for

improvements to the unit next

year.

Plans include more space for

patients, and a space for people

to use when they are agitated

and need to calm down.

Although the numbers

have dropped, she said one

assault was still one assault too

many.

“We are constantly looking

at ways to improve the care we

provide to people using our

services,” she said.

The numbers include both

assaults on patients and assaults

on staff. The changes were made

to make the environment as safe

as possible for staff, as well as

patients, she said.

UNDER WAY: A plan for improving the tsunami evacuation process in South New

Brighton is under way, but residents in other areas along the New Brighton coast

are still waiting.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Residents’ groups

try to co-operate on

evacuation plans

• By Gabrielle Stuart

TWO MONTHS after the

failed tsunami evacuation,

work is beginning on

a plan for South New

Brighton residents that

could help them get out

faster.

Civil Defence, Te

Waka Aroha South

Brighton and

the Southshore

Residents Association

are working

together on a community

evacuation

plan, which would

cover things like

evacuation routes

and organise help

for vulnerable

residents.

They plan to

hold a community

meeting in several weeks

to discuss the proposal.

But other residents’

groups in New Brighton,

North New Brighton

and Waimairi have yet

to be contacted by Civil

Defence.

And the The Star can

reveal confusion between

groups in the South New

Brighton area has meant

other work developing

community plans has

stalled.

The South Brighton

Residents’ Association has

been working with the

South Brighton Surf Life

Saving Club to co-ordinate

a network of volunteers to

help in an emergency and

has also been distributing

information to residents in

the area.

Hugo

Kristinsson

Jane Harrison

But that work has been

put on hold because they

did not have information

from Civil Defence.

Residents along the

coast faced congested

exits across Avon River

bridges after the 7.8

magnitude earthquake

struck just after midnight

on November 14.

Residents fearing

a possible tsunami

would not have escaped

if a big wave

struck.

City council Civil

Defence head Alicia

Palmer said she had

not received any messages

directly from the

residents’ association.

“Our understanding

is that Te Waka Aroha

South Brighton and

the Southshore Residents

Association are working

closely together,” she said.

But South Brighton

Residents’ Association

chairman Hugo Kristinsson

said that was not the

case.

Te Waka Aroha South

Brighton founder Jane

Harrison was a former

member of the residents’

group, but Mr Kristinsson

said there had been very

little communication between

the groups since she

left three years ago.

“I cannot understand

why she is actually getting

involved with this,

because she specifically

said she doesn’t want to get

involved with any earthquake

issues,” he said.

He said tsunami response

information should

come from the association

to avoid confusion and

mixed messages.

But Ms Harrison said

she was happy to work

with the residents’ association

and share information

she received from Civil

Defence.

She said Te Waka Aroha

South Brighton planned to

focus on different aspects

of an evacuation plan,

such as co-ordinating

community meetings and

working with individuals,

while the residents’

association focused on

distributing information.

Mr Kristinsson said he

believed that would still

create confusion.

In other areas around

New Brighton, groups

are also still waiting for

information.

New Brighton resident

Susie Bragg said she

planned to hold a

residents’ meeting

more than a month ago

to discuss the failed

evacuation and how to

improve it.

But that meeting had to

be cancelled because she

couldn’t get information

from Civil Defence staff at

the city council.

“We couldn’t get

answers from council

and, if we didn’t have that

information, there wasn’t

any point,” she said.

She plans to co-ordinate

with Te Waka Aroha

South Brighton to use the

information they get from

Civil Defence.

Owaka Pit problem highlights issues

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Bridget Rutherford

SOME ELECTED officials are

struggling to get information out

of their own governing

body after a community board

was refused a briefing about a

long-standing issue in its ward.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has

been denied a briefing from the

city council on a report prepared

about Wigram’s

controversial

Owaka Pit.

Chairman Mike

Mora (left) said

city council staff

had prepared a

report about the pit, however, the

board did not know what was

in it.

Before Christmas, the board

asked for a briefing on the contents

of the report to be set early

this year but it was denied, he

said.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston said

to preserve the independence of

the investigation it did not comment

on ongoing matters.

“It is also inappropriate to

brief the community board

about an active investigation

CONTENTIOUS: The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board wants a briefing on the

Owaka Pit, but the city council said no. ​

in its area as members are not

allowed to influence compliance

decisions.

The city council will provide

an update to the community

board once the investigation has

progressed and a decision has

been made on a way forward.’’

Mr Mora said he was “very

disappointed” by that response.

“We asked for the report, we

should be able to see that report

as soon as practicable, and I

believe we should be able to see it

now. Warts and all,” he said.

“It makes me feel very uncomfortable

when we are elected

to represent communities and

advocate for and on behalf of the

community. Sometimes that can

be a very difficult job.”

Deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton said it was frustrating

because it was a long-standing

issue in the ward.

They’ve got some obligation

to keep us informed.”

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel (left) said

elected members

were briefed

on overarching

issues, but they

could not necessarily

be briefed on what was

happening in a regulatory compliance

space, especially if it was

under investigation.

“If elected members are seen

to interfere with regulatory processes,

then this could be subject

to a judicial review.”

It comes as information

released to The Star showed city

councillors and community

board members had to resort to

using the Local Government Official

Information and Meetings

Act process to request information

out of their own council.

The controversial pit on

Owaka Rd was used as a recycling

tip and has been a source of

contention for years.

In 2013 the medium density

fibre in the pit spontaneously

caught alight taking weeks to

contain.

The city council issued Owaka

Holdings Ltd, which owns the

pit, an abatement notice in April,

2015, which said all MDF had to

be removed by April, 2016.

with councillors receiving information

But that notice lapsed in April

and the city council did not reimpose

it, in spite of requests to do

so from the board.

Ms Weston said it did not

reimpose it because the city

council initiated an investigation

of potential compliance issues at

the site.

The investigation is ongoing.”

She said the city council was

receiving monthly updates on the

removal of the material, which

was coming from an Owaka

Holdings representative.

Alan Edge, who owns Owaka

Holdings, did not respond to The

Star.

Meanwhile, the Awatea

Residents’ Association, which

has fought for the MDF to be

removed for years, had also requested

the same report from the

city council only to be denied.

It had since gone to the Ombudsman

to have it released.

“It could be embarrassing if the

public gets the information and

we haven’t even been briefed on

it,” Ms Broughton said.

Mr Mora understood the

report had been obtained by the

Ombudsman.

Meanwhile, figures show there

were 11 requests for information

under the LGOIMA from elected

Yani

Johanson

officials during the previous term

from 2013 to October 2016.

The most were made by city

councillor Yani Johanson, and

then Shirley-Papanui Community

Board deputy chairman

Aaron Keown.

Cr Johanson made four

requests, including asking for a

copy of documents relating to

bids for cricket matches in the

city and for the Adshel contract

over the provision of bus shelters

in the city.

“I put these requests in following

ongoing attempts to get information,

and staff advice led me to put

an OIA request in after everything

else had failed,” he said.

Current councillor Keown asked

whether the tender for the new

central library was the lowest, a

breakdown for the financial agreement

over the disposal for The

Crossing car park, and whether

city council would install charging

stations for electric vehicles.

“I assumed the reason I wasn’t

getting the information was because

I was a community board

member and not a councillor.

That’s what I was told,” he said.

He said elected members

should get the same information

city council staff got.

Other requests were made by

councillor Jimmy Chen and then

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board chairwoman Sara Templeton.

City council chief adviser to

the chief executive Adair Bruorton

said the city council took

information requests on a case by

case basis.

She said when it was unrelated

Bronwyn

Hayward

to the elected member’s official

duties, or if it belonged to a

third party or was sensitive, they

would have to go through the

LGOIMA process.

Elected members could contact

staff directly, provided they went

through the “proper channels”

and appropriate staff were contacted,

she said.

That was the same for Ms Dalziel

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner, she said.

The vast majority of elected

member questions and information

requests are handled directly

by staff.”

Ms Dalziel said she had never

used the LGOIMA process in her

mayoral role, but had done so

previously.

Canterbury University political

science senior lecturer Bronwyn

Hayward said it was very unusual

for an elected member to go

through the LGOIMA process.

However, Dr Hayward said

it probably related more to the

elected member that was seeking

the information and their personality

and way of doing things.

“We need to make sure that

overall we continue this process

of open and transparent government

as much as possible.”

In comparison, Waimakariri

District Council Mayor David

Ayers said there had been no

case in the last five years of an

elected member having to use the

LGOIMA process, and it would

be “extremely unusual”.

“Elected members’ questions

are always answered outside the

usual constraints of individual

privacy.”

He said it was irrelevant what

ward they represented.

Selwyn District Council chief

executive David Ward said elected

members were encouraged to

make requests directly to him,

senior managers, or at meetings

rather than put in a LGOIMA

request.

He said they could also gain

access to information that did

not necessarily relate to the ward

they represented.

St Margaret’s

rebuild on

cards after

arson attack

• By Andrew King

A BISHOPDALE church gutted by

an arsonist could be torn down with

the rebuild under way by mid-year.

The St Margaret’s Presbyterian

Church on Farrington Ave suffered

almost $2 million in damage when

Cheyenne Destiny Jade Reed, a

35-year-old technician, broke into it

and started a fire in May.

Reverend Andrew Nicol said

while some in the community are

still dealing with the loss of the

church, most are in good spirits.

The timeline for a rebuild is not

clear yet, but we are hopeful we

could be building our new church

halfway through the year,” he said.

He said while most of the new

building will be covered by insurance,

he wanted to see some fundraising

from the congregation to

show real ownership.

“This would show we are completely

behind the rebuild,” he said.

Currently the congregation meets

at Isleworth School.

Reed was jailed for six years for

the arson and other charges, including

burglary, unlawful possession

of a knife, breach of bail, receiving a

computer and theft of a car.

New term council committees

• By Bridget Rutherford

A NEW committee has been

formed to support the city’s

focus on innovation and

sustainability.

Along with it, the city council

created 14 other committees,

sub-committees, working

groups and a taskforce last

month.

The innovation and sustainable

development committee

will be chaired by Vicki Buck,

with Tim Scandrett as her

deputy.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

new city council organisation,

a merger between Canterbury

Development Corporation,

Christchurch & Canterbury

Tourism and some of the council’s

events, would report to this

committee.

She said it would also drive

strategic directions adopted

by the city council, such as the

Resilient Greater Christchurch

Plan.

The committee will also take

on a leadership role in the area

of sustainability and climate

change issues.”

A development forum,

chaired by Jamie Gough, with

Sara Templeton as deputy,

would be a sub-committee.

Raf Manji will chair his

second term of the finance

and performance committee,

supported by Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner.

Ms Dalziel said the committee

was refocused on the city

council’s finances and performance,

rather than its strategies

as it had been previously.

She said the insurance subcommittee,

which was in place

last term, was now under the

finance and performance committee.

“This change will ensure

financial and performance

targets are being met and that

the governance role is focused

at the finance and performance

level.”

The finance and performance

Phil

Clearwater

committee will be supported by

a sub-committee – the strategic

capability committee, which Ms

Dalziel and Cr Turner would

chair.

The new social and community

development committee

will be led by Phil Clearwater.

Cr Clearwater chaired the infrastructure,

transport and environment

committee last term.

Pauline Cotter would become

chairwoman of that committee

this term, with Mike Davidson

as deputy.

This term’s regulatory performance

committee will be

chaired by David East, with Cr

Gough as his deputy. Cr East

held that role last term.

The audit and risk

management committee

Raf Manji

Vicki Buck

David East

Pauline

Cotter

will remain the same, with

independent chairwoman

Sue Sheldon, and Cr Manji

her deputy. Ms Sheldon is a

chartered accountant, and

current director of Real

Journeys Ltd and Contact

Energy.

The others include a housing

taskforce; an international

relations sub-committee; a

multi-cultural working party; a

land drainage working group;

and the civic awards selection,

health and safety and Te

Hononga Council – Papatipu

Runanga committees.

Livingstone in Trump protest

Great tasting food

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

• By Bridget Rutherford

CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn

Livingstone got a glimpse of

Donald Trump being sworn

in as the 45th President of the

United States.

He and his wife, Anthea,

are in the US after originally

buying the plane tickets in the

hope of seeing Hillary Clinton

being sworn in as president.

However, on Saturday (US

time), it was President Trump

they saw.

“I got a little glimpse of

Trump,” he said.

Cr Livingstone said the

following day, the pair took

part in the Women’s March

on Washington – a global

movement to support women’s

rights and broader equality.

They carried the New Zealand

flag, he said.

“It was quite an experience.

The march was like no other

we had ever participated in,

both in terms of the sheer

number of people and the

strength of feeling within it.”

Meanwhile, in Christchurch,

hundreds of people marched

from Victoria Square to Cathedral

Square on Saturday as

part of the global march.

“We carried the New Zealand

flag in solidarity with

those marching in Christchurch

and other cities,” Cr

Livingstone said.

Not only women took part;

there were people of all ages,

he said.

“Those taking part were

from mainstream America,

they were not ‘serial protesters’

as some commentators would

like to think.”

The couple left Christchurch

on January 15 and visited Dallas

to see Dealey Plaza, where

John F Kennedy was assassinated

in 1963, before heading

to New York and Washington

DC.

Cr Livingstone will miss

today’s council meeting as a

result of the trip.

Last week, city

councillor Jamie

Gough expressed

his opinion on

Waitangi Day,

calling it a circus.

(To read Gough’s

views go to www.

star.kiwi)

Today we publish

reaction from emails sent to The

Star and from our facebook page

Rise Up Christchurch.

David Woodings – Another privileged

white man slagging off Waitangi Day,

what’s new at this time of the year leading

up to the celebrations at Waitangi?

Utilising the usual, yet alienating

phrases like ‘cringe’ and ‘clueless circus’

only help us to identify his own prejudices.

Of course re-branding Maori as a ‘pack’

while declaiming the appropriate Maori

term ‘whanau’ in the same sentence assists

us mightily with his own underlying

sentiments for demonstrating respect,

dignity and decorum so cited earlier in

his views.

His attempt to re-brand the “oh, some

of my best friends and relatives ‘could’ be

Maori’’ by rebutting an accepted piece of

institutional racism fell flat, and his attempt

to draw us all into the argument “as

most level headed New Zealanders’’ was

in its own way an argument for the them

brown people/and us white people debate

which inundate our media at this time of

the year.

Not wanting to let the facts get in the

way of a good story he again cites the lie

that the Prime Minister was not provided

with an opportunity to speak at Waitangi.

Let’s remember that the PM actually

stage-managed this issue by delivering

a press statement on the Tuesday stating

that he would not be attending Waitangi

before the invitation (which gave him

speaking entitlements) even arrived on

the Thursday.

Jamie signals his lack of understanding

of ceremony and history through his suggestion

that Waitangi celebrations should

be held elsewhere.

Well firstly, they are, and right across

the country should he avail himself of

the opportunity to celebrate with ‘other’

New Zealanders, and secondly, and more

importantly it is a ‘right’ for Waitangi

celebrations to be held at Waitangi.

Enjoy the Romance

Look his view is his view, narrow

as it is and my suggestion

Jamie is to attend a Waitangi

celebration, maybe go to Okains

Bay this year, mix with people of

many races, read some books on

New Zealand, about the Treaty,

God knows none of us are experts

in the field (although many

people have written expertly on

the Treaty), but Waitangi Day

be a day of self-evaluation as a

nation, the marae is a place for

debate, for listening, for protest,

for getting together and Waitangi

is the place where all of that happens,

not just the stuff you read

in the newspapers Jamie.

And lastly, speaking of newspapers,

where are the Maori journalists

given the opportunity of

present their views, on anything

really, but Waitangi specifically at

this time of the year?

Terry Roberts – Jamie

Gough was spot on with his

viewpoint of the Waitangi circus.

I would have been harsher in

comments.

Lyndsay Pearson – Never

truer words spoken Jamie. You

hit the nail right on the head. I

have always referred to Waitangi

Day since it’s intro as Maori Protest

Day. Prefer it be called New

Zealand Anniversary Day.

Vincent Tavendale – Jamie’s

time as a city councillor has been

a circus.

Al Maitland-Stuart – Well

said. Waitangi is a farce and

should be ignored completely.

The Maori radicals use it to appear

in the media, hence enhancing

their “cause”. If these Maori

wish to return to traditional

days, then they should pay back

all benefit payments, medical,

housing, school and travel costs.

They should also return to their

old ways of gathering and fishing,

they would, after all, lose weight,

thereby being less of a burden on

our health system.

Neil Stuart – Waitangi Day

is being kept politicised by everyone

because they think there

is a benefit. The Harawiras are

ruining Maori image, the media

are trying to make money, the

politicians are trying to get votes

by being there. What a load of

crap just forget the day.

Jessica McCool – Almost

the epitome of white, straight,

male privilege. Doesn’t understand

protest because he’s never

faced systemic injustice.

John Rogers – Pot calling

the kettle black. Where was the

dignity of Key pulling hair and

poncing on the cat walk. Didn’t

hear Jamie talking about dignity

then. Grow up Jamie and try

to imagine living a life without

privilege.

Raymond Low – Has he

taken to trolling? Also dildo

throwing was that done at Waitangi?

I don’t think so. And I’m

sure that was a protest about the

environment?

Marie Lynch – These politicians

do not understand the right

and the need to protest.

#Norespectfordemocracy

Heather Knox – Nothing

wrong with people expressing

themselves through protest action.

Pauline Handley – Agree

when an event as controversial as

the celebrating of a treaty signing

which, because of its two versions

one in English and one in Maori,

has been exposed as a colonial

ploy to bring the Maori tribes

into domination by the English

throne, Mr Gough must be either

uneducated in the recent exposures

or doesn’t want to know

and wants Waitangi celebrations

to go on being the pretence they

are with unearned respect being

given to politicians who don’t

give a toss about Maori rights to

land.

Ever wanted to fly?

Advertorial

Canterbury Aero Club provides a

wide variety of training and offers a

wealth of experience. As one of the

oldest aero clubs in New Zealand, it’s

the place to go for all things aviation:

from one-off introductory flights, to

private licences and right through to

commercial licences. It is also home to

the International Aviation Academy

of New Zealand, which runs a range

of programmes to train commercial

pilots. Members enjoy free rein of the

club’s premises, which overlooks the

Christchurch Airport runway, and are

given access to club’s planes. Imagine

taking to the skies with the family in

tow!

If you’ve ever had a Top Gun fantasy,

phone Canterbury Aero Club and

book yourself an Introductory Flight

Lesson. For a very reasonable $150,

you will be in the air before you

know it, and have a great

conversation starter for years

to come.

Urban Myth #1

Flying a plane is really

difficult.

Urban Myth #2

It’s really expensive – I need

to be the CEO of Microsoft to

afford that.

Kate Preece tells us about

her experience:

Flying a plane was never

something I thought I could do.

I assumed it was well beyond

my skill level and would send

the budget into a tailspin.

However, I was very wrong.

Canterbury Aero Club takes

the difficulty out of flying. Anyone can

fly a plane, and they’re

quick to let you know

that’s the case. The

qualified team are

experts at banishing

self doubt, and treat

this unfathomable feat

as a walk in the park.

I had no experience in

aviation, yet I taxied a

four-seater plane, took

off, flew out to Banks

Peninsula, and landed.

With an instructor

beside you, there’s

always a safety net, and never an issue.

Taking a flying lesson should be on

everyone’s bucket list. Why? Why not!

-Kate Preece

Becoming a recreational pilot operates

on a ‘pay as you go’ system, so there’s

no big outlay. In fact, a typical flight

will cost you around the same as a

day’s skiing. Kids and partners are

welcome at the club and the facilities

make for a great place to hang out and

be entertained.

The reception is manned seven days

a week by flight instructors who are

more than happy to help with any

questions.

www.cac.co.nz or phone 359 2121.

They have shown this by

attempting to sell off what

I am a pakeha myself whose

disgusted in this mockery that

politicians make of past promises

and then expect respect honour

and speaking rights at Waitangi

Day celebrations.

Peaceful protest is my right as

a New Zealander and Mr Gough

needs to wake up to the reasons

we are protesting lately against

having this country sold out by

this Government to the growing

power of global corporations

that respect neither our human

rights or our environment or the

indigenous rights in countries

they want to use to grow their

profit margins.

The dildo throwing I recall

was at a politician who is all for

letting this happen.

Trust Gough to not point out

the reason for recent accelerated

protests.

He’s all for selling us out

Dave Moore – One must

Back to school adds to financial struggle

NEXT WEEK thousands of

children and young people

will swap the freedom of the

summer holidays for another

year of school.

Friends will be reunited after

the break, there will be more

than a few relieved parents, and

inevitably the golden weather

will begin!

THere will also be an added

financial strain on already

stretched household budgets still

recovering from the Christmas

and holiday period. Uniforms,

stationary and voluntary

donations all add up.

THat families are feeling the

squeeze is not surprising when

you look at the facts.

THe price of a child’s state

education has risen by 15 per

cent since 2007.

Figures released by the

Australian Scholarships Group

planning and education index

show that parents can now

expect to pay up to $40,000

towards the cost of a child’s state

schooling.

It is now clear that the

National Government’s

underfunding has killed off the

notion that education in New

Zealand is free.

In last year’s Budget, National

froze 2017 school operational

funding and continued a seven

year freeze of early childhood

education funding.

THe simple fact is that

Government funding simply

hasn’t been keeping up with the

cost of educating kids.

If they don’t get the money

from government, schools have

to look elsewhere and parents are

the ones most likely to end up

footing the bill.

I know from talking with

teachers and principals that

they know that their parents

are strapped for cash. A

survey of principals late last

year shows that many schools

will instead be forced to cut

teacher aide hours because their

communities simply can’t afford

to pay more. That means the

children who most need extra

support miss out.

We’ve certainly seen an

upswing in the electorate office

of people coming in who can’t

get the support their child needs.

THis is not right. By law,

schooling in New Zealand is

supposed to be free, but under

National that’s simply not the

case. Failing to fund education

properly is costly to parents,

but the biggest losers are our

children.

Labour has made a very clear

commitment to fund schools

properly so they don’t have

to rely on contributions from

parents. Every Kiwi kid deserves

a fair shot at a great education.

Canterbury spokeswoman

Temporary housing units available for farmers

LOSING YOUR home is

distressing in any circumstance,

especially after a natural disaster

when whole communities are

disrupted.

As a small nation prone to

various natural disasters, we

have to be innovative and flexible

in the weeks and months that

follow a large-scale event.

The magnitude 7.8 earthquake

that struck near Kaikōura

on November 14 caused

widespread damage to essential

infrastructure – including state

highways and other roads – and

to thousands of homes and

properties.

Farm properties were hit

particularly hard, with many

isolated farmers forced to take

matters into their own hands to

ensure their stock had access to

food and water.

The Government recently

announced it would sell the

temporary housing units used

in Christchurch after the 2011

earthquake to help farmers in

Gerry Brownlee

the Hurunui, Kaikōura and

Marlborough districts recover.

The 20 temporary

units at the Rawhiti

Domain in New Brighton

were used to support families

through the Christchurch

earthquakes and will now

support those farmers with

significantly damaged homes.

Farmers will be able to buy a

unit for $25,000 and use them

while their homes are repaired as

they need to stay on their land to

keep their businesses running.

The Government was in negotiations

to sell the remainder of

the temporary houses at Rawhiti

and Linwood to the city council

when the Kaikōura earthquake

struck.

This option of relocating

the temporary housing, now

surplus from the Christchurch

earthquake recovery, is among

the support initiatives the

Government has put in place

since the Kaikoura earthquake.

Between the earthquake and

Christmas, the Government’s

response included rolling out

a wage subsidy package for affected

businesses, passing three

pieces of emergency legislation

to expedite important recovery

work and announcing $3.7 million

health support for affected

regions.

The National Government

is committed to making New

Zealand resilient in the face of

natural disasters and will this

year continue on the work it

has been doing over the last six

years.

practical horticultural skills

with a focus on tikanga (Maori

way of doing things).

Corrections Canterbury lead

service manager Katey Gibling

said the intention was for offenders

to reconnect with the land

while gaining skills for employment

and a taste for achievement

and further training.

“Many of those we work with

are drifting, their lives have

become chaotic and without

purpose. Through this partnership,

and projects like this, we

help them to reconnect with their

culture and find a way forward,”

she said.

“Lincoln provide the qualification

and having them involved

has helped the offenders see

that this is a real qualification

and they are very capable of

doing something they had never

thought possible for them.”

The 12 graduates were presented

with certificates recognising

proficiency in chainsaw operation,

quad-bike driving, tractor

driving and the use of farming

implements.

For Brent, the first graduate of

the course, the programme has

been truly life changing.

“This programme was critical

to me getting the confidence to

have a go and get back in charge

of my life,” he said.

Last year, Brent was studying

horticulture, then when things

‘got stressful,’ he started to drink

heavily and found himself on a

community work sentence with a

drink driving conviction.

“When I committed my offences,

I wasn’t thinking ahead. I

was dealing with alcohol and anxiety

issues. I was losing my friends,

failing my studies. I was in a dark

place and ended up on a community

work sentence,” he said.

“This programme was the first

big mental shift for me. I started

to plan forward again.

“I did the chainsaw course

thinking that it could make me

more employable and I thought

the quad bike training could also

lead to something. It gave me the

confidence to try again. I had

gained these skills and thought, ‘I

can do this’.”

Brent said that in addition to

starting to learn again, it was

the mentoring support of the

community work supervisor who

helped him see opportunity.

The project’s community

work supervisor Reuben Gent

said the partnership offered

new opportunities for people on

community work sentences to

access skills and qualifications

for employment. The tikanga

element helped offenders

reconnect with Maori principals

and culture.

“In addition to practical skills

and work aptitudes, the offenders

on the programme are gaining

confidence and the personal

skills and motivation to move on

with their lives,” Mr Gent said.

Agriculture provides opportunity

•From page 25

“Working alongside each

other provides time and opportunity

to talk about what is going

on in people’s lives. Projects

like this work at many levels,”

Mr Gent said.

Koukourarata Marae representative

Manaia Cunningham

said he was very proud of the

way the project was progressing

and the difference it was making

in the lives of the people working

on it.

“As a marae we are thrilled to

support our community service

whanau and we are here to

support each other,” Mr Cunningham

said.

“This education programme

has a Maori education framework

that ensures everyone’s

whakapapa is respected.”

For some of those in the

project, they will find the confidence

and passion to continue

their studies in a related field, for

example, horticulture or forestry

at Lincoln University.

Bill Martin, manager of the

biological husbandry unit, is the

university’s delivery partner in

the partnership.

“This programme delivers

skills that growers want,” Mr

Martin said.

The people graduating from

STUCK IN: People on community sentences with Corrections

have been learning new agricultural skills, such as proficiency

with a chainsaw.

this programme have certificates

of proficiency in useful skills.”

The programme offers a way

to engage in the community and

partner in the Koukourarata

gardens. While the initial programme

was about rebuilding

and shaping lives, the partnership

has taken a new turn with

the BHU engaging in a two-year

research project to develop

commercial seed lines of organic

taewa, or Maori potatoes, and

ensure their availability into the

future.

“Through this project, we will

enable Koukourarata to develop

commercial scale production of

organic taewa,” Mr Martin said.

The tikanga element of the

programme also sat well with

the university’s whenua strategy

and recognition of the importance

of engaging with Maori

and Pasifika and the land.

“Between the three partners

we bring commitment, tikanga,

the labour, the science and the

will to make a difference to the

future of this food source which

is culturally significant to New

Zealand, and especially to iwi,”

Mr Martin said.

“We are helping people reconnect

with the earth, traditional

planting and horticultural methods.

It’s not just seeds we are

growing. It’s ideas and futures.”

As for Brent, he felt very

positive about his future. He

had returned to Lincoln to study

landscape architecture and had

completed and passed his first

two papers.

“I stuffed up so much for so

long. I needed this, but I didn’t

know I needed it. It seems

strange to say, but it has been a

really important experience for

me,” he said.

“My sentence gave me

purpose. I came home feeling

engaged and positive again.

Since I have been on sentence,

my whole life has turned around

and Corrections has been a big

part of this.”

Few clues in

home invasion

investigation

• By Andrew King

LEADS IN a Harewood home

invasion are thin, with police

focusing on forensic evidence.

On December 19, three elderly

people were held against their will

at the Patricia Pl property, near

Nunweek Park, for more than

three hours.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Leairne Dow said police could not

discuss what forensic evidence

they are looking at or whether it

came from the house or the car

that was stolen after the invasion.

About 7am, a man entered the

house by posing as a delivery man.

He tied up the victims, in their

60s, before leaving in their silver

Toyota Vitz, police said.

That car has since been recovered.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dow

said the motive appears to be

financial gain.

“No gang or drug connections

have been identified, but we are

keeping an open mind,” she said.

She said the victims are still in

the country and are co-operating

with police inquiries.

They say the offender, described

as 30-40 years old, is 1.8m tall and

of solid build.

Chch man killed in Qatar World Cup stadium

• By Matthew Theunissen, Simon

Plumb,

A CHRISTCHURCH-born man

has died while working on the

massive stadium build in Qatar

for football’s 2022 World Cup.

Zac Cox, 40, is thought

to have died instantly when

equipment failed and he fell from

a catwalk platform at Doha’s

Khalifa Stadium, which is being

renovated in preparation for the

2022 tournament.

An investigation has been

launched into how the tragedy

happened – the second death in

a matter of months fuelling fresh

controversy over preparations for

the FIFA tournament.

Good friend Steve Wilson said

Mr Cox was much-loved among

his wide network of friends here.

“He was a close friend of mine,

a close friend of many people,”

he said.

“He touched so many people

with his beautiful spirit and

heart.”

Mr Cox was a man in tune

with his spiritual side and spent

about eight years living at the

Anahata Yoga Retreat in Golden

Bay, where he became heavily

involved in yoga.

He left about three years ago

to work in the construction

industry.

TRAGIC: Zac Cox died instantly when a hoist failed as he worked on a World Cup stadium in

Qatar.

“Just a few years ago he got a

ticket so he could work off a high

wire. He was over there earning

money because he was going to

come back,” Mr Wilson said.

“I felt like he was my younger

brother, he was also so incredibly

wise for his age.”

Mr Cox had great tragedy in

his life when his wife, Betsy, died

of breast cancer, aged 30.

He had since found love again

and was intending to remarry.

“He met another beautiful

girl and they were planning to

move back here and marry,” Mr

Wilson said.

The last communication I had

with him was an email he sent

me about January 1 or 2, and he

said he was going back in Doha

on the sixth, see how that goes

and then he was going to come

over here.”

Mr Wilson had spoken to Mr

Cox’s mother, who still lives in

Christchurch.

“What she [the mum] said was

they were installing a catwalk

high up on the structure, he

was standing on it, there was an

equipment failure and dropped.

He fell and would have died

instantly on impact,” he said.

“Good to know how it

happened and he didn’t suffer a

protracted death.”

It is the second confirmed

death of an employee working on

a 2022 World Cup work site in

the past three months.

In October, 29-year-old Nepali

man Anil Kumar Pasman was

killed after being struck by a

water tanker at the Al Wakrah

Stadium building site, according

to Doha News.

Last year, Amnesty

International raised the alarm

about conditions for workers

refurbishing the stadium, and

accused Qatar of using forced

labour and putting profit before

safety.

It followed previous reports in

2015 of some 1200 workers who

died building stadiums in Qatar

for the World Cup.

The Khalifa Stadium was due

to be finished at the end of 2016

but that deadline was pushed out

to March this year.

Construction firm Midmac-

Six Construct said Mr Cox –

who was wearing a harness and

other safety gear – fell when a

lever hoist failed.

“Sadly, the harness was cut

during the fall with a fatal

outcome. What caused the cut is

subject to further investigation.”

The organisation responsible

for delivering the stadiums

and infrastructure for the

2022 World Cup, the Supreme

Committee for Delivery &

Legacy, said: “An immediate

investigation into the cause of

this fatality is under way and

further details will be released in

due course.

The Supreme Committee

for Delivery & Legacy shares

our deepest condolences with

the family for their loss.” – NZ

Fans invited to see what Crummer

Annie Crummer found

fame with hits such as

Language and See What

Love Can Do. She spoke

to Tom Doudney about

working on new material

and seeing dyslexia

as a blessing ahead

of her performance

with Debbie Harwood,

Margaret Urlich and

Sharon O’Neill at

Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds

concert in March

IT HAS been a long time since

we’ve heard anything new from

Annie Crummer but the singer

is hopeful her fans won’t have to

wait too much longer.

Crummer hasn’t released a full

album of original material since

1996’s Seventh Wave. Since then,

fans have had to make do with

a best of collection in 2002 and

three songs released in 2010 as

singles only.

While she is reluctant to talk

about release dates, she has been

working on songs for an album

which has a working title of Project

Annie C.

“I have got a bunch of songs

BEST OF FRIENDS: From left, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood and Crummer will perform

together at Selwyn Sounds, along with Sharon O’Neill (not pictured).

that I am dying to get out of the

demo situation and get into the

studio and smash that stuff out.

I’m the only one stopping me,”

she said.

“I’ve got a lot more to say musically.

I will just have to get over

myself and get on with it.”

Crummer said that while she

was known more as a singer than

a songwriter, she had become

more confident dabbling in song

writing.

“Melodies come really good to

me but the way I write lyrics is

quite odd because I am fully dyslexic

so the way I explain things,

I don’t think it’s the same as a

non-dyslexic songwriter.”

Crummer only discovered she

was dyslexic well into her adult

years but the revelation came as a

big relief.

“When I look back I think: ‘Oh,

I have been blessed with dyslexia,

that’s all.’ I just learn things differently,”

she said.

“I forgave myself for feeling

so dumb all these years because

I left school really early and

now when I look back at all the

subjects I took, it had nothing to

do with anything technical, it all

had to do with creative stuff.”

Those subjects included

classes on art, Maori culture and,

perhaps surprisingly, typing –

because she could just copy the

patterns without thinking about

the words.

That ability to recognise patterns

helped her land a leading

role in the Australian version of

Ben Elton’s hit musical-theatre

production We Will Rock You,

based on the songs of British rock

band Queen, in 2003. To get the

part of Killer Queen, Crummer

had to audition in front of Queen

guitarist Brian May and drummer

Roger Taylor.

can do at Selwyn Sounds

“I had to learn the English

phonetically and that is actually

how I learn music too. I listen

to where heart is needed and

where anger is needed and all the

emotions, I just emulate those

inflections without really knowing

what I am talking about, but

I have just fooled everyone,” she

said.

“I can’t believe I got that role,

if only they knew how I did

it. But it did catch up on me a

couple of times on stage where

I’d fumble over a word because

I didn’t fully understand it and

I had to dig my way out of it,

live.”

She said that while the way

dyslexic people figured things

out might be different, the

outcome could be incredible.

Crummer, who lives in

Auckland, said she loved

that performing enabled her

to travel. She always looked

forward to playing with

Harwood, Urlich and O’Neill,

sometimes joined by Shona

Laing, with the singers typically

doing about three or four shows

together a year.

She was looking forward to

reuniting with them for Selwyn

Sounds.

“I’m a huge fan of theirs and

we have the utmost respect for

each other so it’s a joy all round,

a real buzz.”

The concert will also feature

Kiwi rock heavyweights Mi-Sex,

Dragon, The Jordan Luck Band

and Jason Kerrison.

When she was not performing

with Harwood and co or going

solo, she often joined her father’s

band, Will Crummer and the

Rarotongans, playing songs

which mostly sung in Cook

Island Maori. Crummer took a

more low key role in the band,

playing the pahu and putting in

some occasional backing vocals.

She didn’t mind stepping back

from the spotlight and credited

her father with setting her on

the path to stardom.

“He gave me the gift of

music,” she said.

“I do count my blessings,

that’s a daily ritual for me, the

fact that I can do music and

have never had a job.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

a return bus ride

between pick-up points in

• By Rachel Vogan

WITH THE start of a new year

many of us have grand plans

to make some changes in the

outdoor department. It may be to

grow some new plants or try new

colour combinations. Some may

consider building a new garden,

developing a new area or adding

in a pergola and seating. Others

may like to start saving their own

seeds or making compost for the

first time, and some may be lead

to be self-sufficient in the edible

department.

Whatever you think you may

like to do, write it down and refer

to it every now and again; put

it on the fridge, and if the same

things keep floating to the top,

then add it to your ‘barrow list’.

For me, 2017 is all about growing

plants in pots. My garden is pretty

full, so now it’s all about ‘pot

power’ – whether it be vegetables,

flowers, or something with strong

foliage. It’s official: I am going

potty!

Compost

The start of a new year is a

good time to hook into some

compost turning and making

a new pile. If you are starting

from scratch, remember the key

compost ingredients are browns

and greens. Browns are carbonrelated

things such as newspaper,

cardboard, sticks and twigs.

Greens are nitrogen-derived, so

that means anything with leaves –

such as grass clippings, weeds and

food scraps. The final ingredient

is water. Use equal parts of each

element: alternating layers of

brown and green organic matter,

then water your heaps to start the

composting process. Covering

open compost heaps with plastic

will speed up the process. Now is

a good time to turn any existing

heaps.

Stone fruit

It’s ripening fast now, so to ensure

the best flavour, allow all the

fruit to fully ripen on the tree. If

birds are an issue, get some bird

scare tape; they hate it and so do

wandering cats! For crops that

are still developing that have a

particularly heavy fruit-set, thin

out heavy clusters to allow the

fruit to fully develop into a decent

size rather than having a whole

lot of smaller fruit.

If fruit shows any signs of

rotting, remove instantly to

prevent the rot from spreading

through the tree. Most stone fruit

should be pruned in summer

after fruiting – the main reason

for this is to prevent the spread of

any fungal diseases such as silver

leaf.

Sweet peas

What generous blooms these are! For me, a

season without sweet peas would be like a life

without wine – not worth thinking about. Now

they are all in full bloom, remember the trick to

keeping them flowering is to keep picking them.

Regular picking triggers new flower buds to

appear, whereas leaving the spent blooms on the

plant shortens the flowering season, as the plants

then just put their energy into producing seed.

Dahlias

The flowering marathon of dahlias is well

underway. Few other summer stalwarts bring

so much pleasure for so little effort. If only all

relationships survived on the smell of an oily rag.

As a cut flower, dahlias last for days. If you change

the water regularly they will last a good week. Pick

the flowers once they are almost fully open as the

buds don’t tend to open fully if picked too early.

Vegetables

New potatoes are on the menu! When digging, aim

to make sure you get all the wee spuds out of the soil.

As soon as soil space is available, sow another crop so

they will be ready to use over the winter months. Sow

seeds of Brussels sprouts as these seedlings need to be

well in the ground by the end of the month to ensure a

hearty crop by the time winter arrives. Remove broad

bean plants that have done their dash; chop them up

and add them to the compost heap. Sow new rows

of radish, carrot and beetroot, and make sure you

replenish the soil with a bag or two of compost before

you re-sow. Avoid planting broccoli, cabbage and

cauliflower while the soil is so hot, as they are a coolclimate

crop best planted once the soil cools a little.

Companion Herbs

We all know herbs are great to grow

in the garden, they’re usually easy

maintenance, fun for kids to grow and

a great supply of fresh tasting flavour to

add to your favourite dishes. But did you

know that they have more importance

and use than just helping dinner taste

great? Yep, herbs are the ultimate

companion plants! From attracting

pollinators, fending off unwanted pests

and helping other plants taste better.

One of the most important reasons for

planting any plant is to attract pollinators.

Bees and butterflies are important and we

want to invite as many into our garden as

possible. Borage is a great choice to do this.

It isn’t a plant you’ll find in too many gardens

but it should be. It has a wonderful refreshing

cucumber like taste, the oil from its seeds

are sought after for its anti-inflammatory

qualities and bees absolutely love it! This

is because of the stunning blue star shaped

flowers. Bees love bright colours but contrary

to what people think bees actually don’t

see red and orange very well they see blue,

purple, white and yellow best! So for bees

those are the colours to plant.

Rosemary is also a great addition to the

garden. Its purple flowers attract bees early

in the spring so they know to keep coming

back throughout the summer, it’s

or shaped into topiary styles. It good for

repelling unwanted insects like mosquitos

and of course it’s great for roasts! But be

careful not to plant next to potatoes as these

two do not like each other.

Basil is one of the ultimate companion

herbs! It tastes amazing, Bees and butterflies

love it but other insects like white fly, aphids,

fruit fly and mosquitos hate it! However,

people sometimes have difficultly growing

it, this is because basil is a tropical loving

plant and needs to be protected from the

cold. A tip therefore is to grow basil in a

bowl, this way you can easily move it in and

out as necessary. For outdoor planted basil,

definitely buy frost cloth. Basil also helps

plants such as tomatoes and peaches resist

disease and taste better! Simply plant them

as a border around the susceptible plants.

I could go on forever about all the different

companion herbs as the list is endless but

I won’t. What I will say is bear in mind that

planting these won’t guarantee you’ll be

insect and disease free but will help. So load

your gardens up with as many different

herbs as you can and don’t just plant them

in their groups! Mixed them up, experiment

and have fun! It’s a simple and natural way

to protect and enjoy your garden.

Brussels sprouts: Love ’em or hate ’em

Some of the reasons to

love Brussels sprouts,

and how to grow them

• By Janet Wade

BRUSSELS SPROUTS top the list of New

Zealand’s most disliked vegetables.

The Belgians aren’t rushing to claim

credit for these almost universally reviled

vegetables, though the link to their capital

city appears to have come from the

vegetable’s popularity in Belgium during the

Middle Ages and stuck as they spread to the

rest of the world. To still be with us today,

Brussels sprouts must have something going

for them – and indeed they do!

If the sprouts are picked when their

heads are tight and no more than 2.5-5cm

across, they are deliciously tender and have

a milder, sweeter taste than their often

tough, bitter, store-bought or frozen cousins.

Likewise, the unpleasant, sulphurous odour

that is associated with them doesn’t occur

unless they are overcooked. The smell is

produced by sulphur-containing compounds

called glucosinolates that research indicates

help prevent cancer (only broccoli contains

more). Packed with an abundance of other

vitamins and minerals, all in all, they are

considered one of the world’s healthiest

foods.

Originating in the northern hemisphere,

where Brussels sprouts are traditionally

served as part of the British Christmas

dinner (no doubt to the chagrin of British

children), they are exclusively a crop

for New Zealand’s colder climate areas.

Ohakune and Oamaru are where most of

our commercially-grown Brussels sprouts

are produced. In saying that, the ones in the

accompanying photographs were grown in

Auckland; however, plants grown in warm

areas are more likely to produce loose heads

(unrecognisable as Brussels sprouts), bolt

to seed, and without frost the flavour of the

sprouts isn’t as good.

Warmer climates also allow their main

pests to proliferate such as caterpillars,

aphids and slugs and snails. Birds, too, can

be a problem, targeting the seedlings and

emerging sprouts (pigeons in particular).

Netting can be used to keep the birds and

butterflies at bay, but you will need to keep

a careful watch for aphids, which secrete a

chemical that causes the leaves to curl over

to provide a hiding place.

Brussels sprouts are normally planted very

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Modern hybrid varieties, such as these ‘Red Ribs’, have had the bitterness bred out

of them; Firm the soil down around the seedlings well, so the plants can support their top-heavy growth, and the

sprouts remain tight and firm; Keep an eye out for aphids, which secrete an enzyme that causes the leaves to curl

over and hide them; The sprouts begin to form in the leaf axils once the plants are mature, meaning a long wait for

the end result; Chocolate Brussels sprouts find equal favour with people who love Brussels sprouts and those who

hate them; The sprouts begin to mature from the bottom of the stalk. Topping the plant concentrates all its energy

into the sprouts and causes them to mature together.

early in spring, and again in mid-to-late

summer. Most varieties take at least three

to five months to produce a harvest because

the sprouts only form once the plant reaches

maturity.

The plants are best started in seed trays

then transplanted around six weeks later,

once they have four to six leaves, to a site in

full sun, with well-drained soil, enriched

with a high-nitrogen general garden

fertiliser.

Space the plants with at least 50cm

between them, in rows around 75cm apart.

Sink the seedlings down to their first set of

leaves and firm the soil around them well, so

that the plants can support their top-heavy

growth, and the sprouts don’t develop loose

heads because the plants rock around in the

wind.

Side-dress with a high-nitrogen fertiliser

four weeks after planting and again at eight

weeks, but don’t apply further nitrogen once

the sprouts start to form. Keep the plants

evenly moist during the growing season. A

mulch can help to keep the soil cool and

moist and suppress weed growth.

Theatre/Arts

Filmmaker to capture Olympic history

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ZAHRA LARI could become

the first figure skater to represent

the United Arab Emirates at the

Winter Olympics.

And a filmmaker who grew

up in Merivale is determined to

capture the skater make history

at next year’s event

in South Korea.

From the moment

filmmaker

Niamh Peren

(left), 27, stumbled

across a lowquality

video of

the Muslim figure

skater on YouTube, she instantly

wanted to know more.

“We became like pen pals for

a little bit and I was like this is

too good of a story. She is on the

cusp of doing something really

big,” Peren said.

The filmmaker secured a week

in February to travel to Abu

Dhabi to create a documentary

about the inspiring skater in her

homeland.

“I think it is a really beautiful

and cinematic notion, an ice

skater that comes from the desert.

Like it is quite a brave sport

to choose . . . the chill of the ice

and the heat of the desert is just

worlds apart,” she said.

Peren, who attended St Margaret’s

College, will travel over

with a small film crew, including

OLIVER DAVIDSON was going

to study to become a surveyor at

Otago University.

But after achieving three major

feats in the performing arts

realm, the former St Bede’s College

student has decided to take

a risk.

Davidson, of Papanui, will

study a Bachelor of Performing

Arts at Otago University after

winning a $16,000 scholarship.

But, not only has he had his

tertiary fees covered, he was

recently accepted to attend an intensive

singing school in Napier

earlier this month, and has been

chosen to represent the country

at the world championships of

performing arts in Los Angeles

in June.

About 300 people auditioned

for a place in Napier’s IFAC

Handa NZ Singing School and

Davidson was one of 73 chosen

to attend.

But, while the 11-day course

focuses on helping students to

accelerate their skills in singing,

Davidson said what he enjoyed

most was being around likeminded

people.

He said his junior years at St

Bede’s were a struggle with some

of his fellow classmates finding

dancing a “weird thing.”

But he said as everyone grew

Jeremy Valender.

Valender, who has shot a range

of work for Burberry, Adidas,

Google and Louis Vuitton, is one

of the big names Peren has built

up in her contact list during her

film career.

Peren has worked with filmmakers

Jane Campion, Garth

Davis and Jonathan Glazer.

The film crew plans to “get to

know” Lari and her home life by

capturing places such as the rink

she trains in, and the desert she

drives past on the way to training

each day.

“Hopefully, she gets into the

Olympics, which will be the biggest

thing ever and we will go to

South Korea and watch her shred

it,” Peren said.

Peren’s career took off

when she first acted in the

film Blue, which won an award

in the Cannes critics’ week section

of the Cannes Film Festival,

when she was 17. She then started

her own video-making while

studying at the Elam School of

Fine Arts in Auckland.

Recently, Peren was signed to

Blink Productions in London,

which specialises in commercial

PANORAMA: Edinburgh from Calton Hill. It’s worth giving the thighs and lungs a workout to take in the view. Right – The Royal Mile is a network of narrow, cobbled

alleys in the Old Town.

Edinburgh: Scottish heritage on show

• By Mike Yardley

NEARLY A decade had passed

since my last swing through

Edinburgh, but this city of

staircases and hills swathed in

Georgian and neo-Classical

architecture remains as

charismatic as ever.

In addition to admiring the

contemporary trends that are

redefining Scottish cuisine, the

plethora of craft beer producers

and the design-forward new

buildings, I reacquainted myself

with “Auld Reekie’s” time-honoured

draws.

Impossible to miss, with its lofty

perch on a craggy hill, Edinburgh

Castle is like a tourist tractorbeam.

Even the weekday admission

lines can test your patience, but

a wander through this treasured

symbol of Scottish heritage is

compulsive. Take advantage of the

free guided tours that regularly

operate within the castle, which

unpack the vivid nuggets of Scottish

history with compelling ease.

For a Kiwi, Edinburgh’s designated

districts of the Old Town

and the New Town seems a little

incongruous, because they are

both seriously old compared to

our comparative adolescence. The

Old Town is of course home to

the sweeping Royal Mile and the

network of narrow, cobbled alleys

that run off it.

With Edinburgh Castle at its

head and the Palace of Holyroodhouse

at its foot, stand out buildings

along the Royal Mile include

Gladstone’s Land, The Real Mary

King’s Close, John Knox House

and St Giles’ Cathedral, established

during the reign of King

David in the 1120s.

Plus, one of the more prestigious

new additions is the Scottish

Parliament. Dating back to

the 15th-century, I could never

tire of aimlessly strolling within

the Old Town.

New Town is Edinburgh’s 18thcentury

masterpiece of urban

planning, resolutely Georgian

in design, with its wide streets

and elegant architecture. One

of the city’s crown jewels is the

National Museum which presents

a remarkably insightful history

of Scotland, spanning millennia,

from its prehistoric past to a close

encounter with Dolly the Sheep.

In July, 10 new galleries opened

at the museum, accentuating the

Scottish history lesson, with a

focus on the wonders of science,

technology and design. Admission

is free.

In a city not short on arresting

vistas, my all-time favourite perch

is Calton Hill. It’s a thigh-burning

climb up to the top, but you’ll be

sweetly rewarded with expansive

panoramas, reaching across to

Leith, the Firth of Forth and the

ancient volcano which is evocatively

called Arthur’s Seat.

Want to go even higher? Totter

up the spiral staircase of the Nelson

Monument, one of the many

follies that crowns Calton Hill.

If your lungs and calves are up

for another exacting challenge,

I also love the Scott Monument

that towers above Princes Street

Gardens.

Illustrating Edinburgh’s reverence

for its literature heritage,

HISTORIC: The drawing room on the Royal Yacht Britannia. It is moored in Leith.

RECOMMENDED: Badger & Co offers and inspired menu of

local and seasonal menus.

the Scott Monument is a Gothic

tower dedicated to Sir Walter

Scott. It’s the largest monument to

any writer in the world. Trek up

the 287 steps for more sumptuous

city views. Ask the locals, and

they’ll tell you that forward-focused

Scottish cuisine is all about

being locally sourced, thoughtful

and laid-back.

A star specimen is Aizle, one

of a growing number of local

restaurants where the menu takes

the form of a list of ingredients,

which are artfully executed into

a mini-degustation menu of four

dishes. For example one dish was

simply described as “ black vinegar,

chicken skins and summer

berries.

Another highly recommended

experience is Badger & Co.

Opened in May in what was the

original home of Wind in the Willows

author, Kenneth Grahame,

Badger & Co. offers an inspired

menu of local and seasonal

menus. Its bright, quirky interiors

have already made it fiendishly

popular with the locals.

Want to drink with the locals?

Settle into the velvet seats of

Kay’s Bar, a pint-sized Georgian

coach house, tucked away from

the crowds on Jamaica St. A

convivial crowd of locals pack

out this small pub every night, a

snug refuge from the inevitable

Edinburgh rain.

Edinburgh’s historic port of

Leith is home to Royal Yacht

Britannia, which is an experiential

must for House of Windsor

aficionados.

The on-board tours are astoundingly

comprehensive, allowing

you to see where the Royal

Family ate, slept and played, and

the ship brims with royal memorabilia,

official gifts and artefacts.

Leith is in the throes of transformation,

an edgy, on-trend hive

of quirky pubs, retro stores, public

art projects and cocktail bars.

My final salute to Edinburgh

was at the Lioness of Leith, surrounded

by hip young things

sipping hair-of-the-dog cocktails

over brunch.

They offer that personal touch that you only get from a

SNUG: A Springston mother’s clothing for tots will be showcased in Australia.

Opportunity for business to

A SPRINGSTON business will be

showcased in Australia’s only trade show

for boutique retailers next month.

Jamie Kay, which makes baby blankets

and clothes, will be featured at the Life Instyle

show at the Royal Hall of Industries

in Sydney, February 16 to 19.

The business began in 2013, when

Springston mother Jamie Fridd was

WOMEN’S BRAINS start going downhill

in their 50s – a decade earlier than

previously believed, scientists say.

On average the female mind loses up

to five per cent of its sharpness between

50 and 60, researchers have found. But

they said the drop-off did not seem to be

caused by menopause, noting there was

not a “sharp acceleration” in the decline of

mental faculties.

They also said it was not a warning of

dementia but a normal feature of ageing

and could be held in check or even

reversed, Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper

reported.

The findings were based on a study that

She began designing pieces in her studio,

and soon expanded from cot blankets

to linen and organic cotton baby clothing.

Now the brand is stocked internationally,

followed more than 2000 healthy women,

enrolled in their 40s, for 10 years after

menopause.

Researchers from the University of

California, Los Angeles said earlier findings

had underestimated the drop-off in

mental sharpness.

In two key areas of mental functioning,

processing speed and verbal memory,.Verbal

memory declined on average by about

one per cent every five years, and cognitive

processing speed, including speed of

perception and reaction, showed a decline

of one per cent every two years.

It was not all bad news – one measure

that showed no decline in older women

was vocabulary.

The research, published in PLOS ONE,

said that up to now “declines in cognitive

performance have not been consistently

documented in those under 60 years of

age”.

The declines form part of normal

healthy ageing and run parallel to the

slowing of physical responses such as reaction

time, running speed and metabolic

rate.

The authors said they did not see a

“sharp acceleration” of decline after the

transition to menopause. But they said

they could not be certain that a fall in

oestrogen levels did not have a role to play

in mental decline as levels of the hormone

tail off in the years before the onset of

menopause.

Higher levels of fitness and education

have both been found to help prevent

cognitive decline. Exercise is thought to

increase levels of a brain chemical which

helps our brains stay healthy.

another day….” This can easily become habit and before you

know it you have lost one or 2 training sessions every week.

Of course you might have a good reason for not being able

to get out early. Getting the children up and organised is one

of these, although….is there a chance that your partner can

play a role? Other times of the day for your training session

are perfectly fine too but good planning is required. A light

snack (toast/bread, fruit) before your early morning training

session is generally recommended to assist your blood sugar

levels. This also applies if you exercise later in the morning or

afternoon. Breakfast or a meal after training will assist with

replenishing energy stores. Exercising before going to bed

might keep you awake for a while if you are a light sleeper.

please undergo a health check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

(from the SporstMed sports nutrition department):

If you need to lose some weight, then this training programme will help

you. But it will only do so if you pay attention to your nutrition at the

same time. Healthy choices include bread and or cereals for breakfast,

sandwiches or a salad for lunch and an evening meal consisting of plenty

of vegetables with fish, chicken or lean meat. Pasta and rice are also

good staple foods for active people. One helping and avoidance of rich

desserts will assist your weight loss. A healthy snack mid morning and

afternoon will help you get through the day. Fruit is always an excellent

choice. Avoid fatty foods and snacks with refined sugars. Special diets

might help you lose weight in the short term but are hard to sustain

and not always balanced or healthy in the long term. If you need help

with your nutrition or weight loss this might be a good time to have a

consultation with an expert, like one of the SportsMed nutritionists.

• By Ross Kiddie

IF THERE was one thing

the separate market

platforms for Citroen and

DS has achieved is that the

designers of both brands

have been given freedom of

expression.

Citroen has always been

known as a company which

has explored the extremes

of automotive design, the

DS brand which is marketed

parallel to Citroen takes

that adventurous approach

one step further.

That can certainly be said

of the DS4 Crossback, the

subject of this evaluation.

Its shape is very charismatic

and has extended the

sport utility vehicle parameters,

it is a crossover vehicle

which, in simple terms,

looks rather like a fully

grown hatchback/liftback.

But its body styling

must have really tested the

boundaries of what is possible

in terms of engineering.

Take the rear doors,

for example, they meld to

a strong point at the top

and slot into a cavity which

looks fabulous, but I can

imagine they would have

been problematic to create.

All through the DS4

Crossback interesting elements

present themselves

and, for that reason alone,

it is a vehicle which appeals

for its fashion and style.

As I mentioned, it is

also a car which borders

in the SUV category even

though it has a traditional

two-wheel-drive (front)

driveline. But it does get

the wonderful 2-litre turbocharged

diesel engine

which has found its way

through much of Citroen’s

product, and it is a power

plant which delivers

fabulous performance and

economy.

In terms of figures, the

1977cc unit pumps out

133kW at the top end,

and a hearty 400Nm of

torque at the bottom end

(2000rpm). That being

the case, acceleration is

swift, the DS4 will lunge to

100km/h from a standstill

in 8.6sec, and will make

120km/h from 80km/h

in 4.3sec, the force of the

turbo boost through the

mid-range is something

quite startling and a joy to

feel.

Even though it is capable

of spirited acceleration, this

engine is rated by Citroen/

DS with a 4.4-litre per

100km (64mpg) combined

cycle fuel usage average. I

DS4 CROSSBACK: Adventurous styling.

couldn’t get anywhere near

that figure during testing,

but I did achieve an average

of 6.4l/100km (44mpg)

which I thought was

reasonable, along with a

6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous

figure travelling at

100km/h, the engine just

loping along at 1400rpm at

that speed.

• Price – Citroen DS4

Crossback, $54,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4284mm; width,

1810mm; height,

1535mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

0-100km/h, 8.6sec

• Fuel usage –

I took the test car on my

usual high country loop

from Waddington through

the back roads to Hororata,

it cruises the highway

quietly and with a sporty

feel that encourages quick

cornering. Citroen has long

been admired for suspension

technology and velvetlike

ride. The Crossback

set-up is just that little bit

harder than I was expecting,

some of which can be

attributed to low profile

tyres (225/45 x 18in), but

that helps with that sport

feel at the steering.

When it comes to being

placed quickly into a corner,

there is sharp turnin

and unyielding grip,

while sport specification

Michelin Pilot rubber provides

positive information

back to the steering wheel.

Body balance over the

suspension is also well controlled,

the suspension and

chassis dynamics make for

a purposeful drive.

I also took the test car on

an across town trip from

my home in the south to

North Beach to pick up a

Trade Me item I had purchased,

and it dealt to the

worst of the bumps and

ruts with dignity and control,

the occupants far from

unsettled.

Drive is channelled

through a traditional sixspeed

automatic gearbox,

and it works fluidly in conjunction

with the engine’s

power output and management

protocols. While this

may seem a little ordinary

in comparison to the other

standout engineering features,

there are plenty of

other features on offer.

The Crossback comes

with a substantial amount

of fitment for its $54,990

price tag, standard items

include satellite navigation,

idle stop start, dual-zone

climate control, cruise

control with speed limiter,

comprehensive infotainment

centre, heated front

seats, and a heap of safety

gear which keeps the car

out of trouble in the first

instance.

Everything about the DS4

Crossback is just a little bit

unusual, the interior design

is extremely practical and

functional, but it is different

in its own special way.

Add into the equation

the bold, sweeping exterior

style, the result is a car that

stands out with its individuality.

That being the case,

Latham may keep wickets

OPENING BATSMAN Tom

Latham is shaping as New

Zealand’s likely wicketkeeper in

the one-day international series

against Australia.

Coach Mike

Hesson spoke up

the merits of handing

the duties to

part-time gloveman

Latham (left) for

the three-match

series beginning in Auckland

on Monday, which would deny

a debut to Wellington specialist

Tom Blundell.

Hesson will save his decision

until after they watch Latham

behind the stumps for Canterbury

against Auckland in

Rangiora on Saturday.

That falls two days out from

the Eden Park opener, where the

24-year-old will play his 50th

ODI.

“He needs to get through a full

50 overs and show that he can

back up,” Hesson said.

“It’ll depend on the balance

we want once we look at the

surface, but if we go with Tom

Latham, we’re able to have another

power player in the middle

or have an extra bowling option.

“We’ve used him in the past

spasmodically and he’s done a

KEEPER: Mike Hesson is considering giving Tom Latham the

wicketkeeping gloves for the upcoming ODI series against

Australia.

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

very good job for us.”

Latham was primarily a

middle-order batsman when he

played three ODIs and four T20s

as a wicketkeeper early in his

career.

He has since established

himself as a quality opening

batsman at test and ODI level.

Test keeper BJ Watling was

unsuccessfully used when New

Zealand were thrashed 3-0 in

the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy

series in Australia in December.

Veteran Luke Ronchi is

regarded as New Zealand’s premier

limited overs gloveman but

is sidelined with a groin injury.

Meanwhile, Hesson expressed

no surprise that match-winning

Australian opener David Warner

was rested for the series.

He says the absence of the

Allan Border Medal winner is

simply a sign of the busy cricketing

times.

“Most sides either have someone

left out at some stage or

injuries,” he said.

“We’ve certainly been in that

boat where we’ve got a lot of

guys unavailable as well.

“I think they’ve still got plenty

of good players.” – NZ Herald

Heinz hat-trick puts his

English club into quarters

A WILLI Heinz hat-trick

has sealed a home European

Challenge Cup quarter-final for

Gloucester over the weekend.

The former Canterbury and

Crusaders halfback racked up

three tries within 47 minutes

as he led his club to a 64-19

shellacking of Bayonne at

Kingsholm.

Replacement prop Josh

Hohneck also crossed for a try.

The Kiwi-laden Gloucester side

also included Tom Marshall,

John Afoa, Jeremy Thrush and

Joe Latta in their match-day

squad. Bayonne fielded Ryan

Tongia on the left wing.

Gloucester will now host Welsh

regional side Cardiff Blues on the

weekend of March 31-April 2 in

the playoffs.

10-year-old golfer wins open

• By Bridget Rutherford

JEONG HYUN Lee has won the

Canterbury Strokeplay Open

women’s golf championship –

and she’s only just turned 10.

The tournament was held at

Templeton over the weekend.

The youngster held out Roun

Lee by one shot over the 36-hole

tournament to take the title

– shooting 220 over her three

rounds.

In her opening round, she shot

71. She then dropped five shots

in her second round, shooting 76

and finished with 73 in the third.

Jeong, who turned 10 in November,

moved to Christchurch

from Korea just over a year ago

to fast track her golfing career,

because it was easier to play here.

She hopes to turn professional

one day.

She is a member of the

Christchurch Golf Club.

Club chief executive Peter

Randle said the club was

proud of her and her win at the

weekend. He said Jeong had high

expectations of herself and the

club knew she would perform.

“We expect her to be there or

there about,” he said.

“She handles herself incredibly

well and she practices more than

any other club members we have.

PROMISING: Jeong Hyun Lee (centre), 10, won the Canterbury

Strokeplay Open women’s golf championship over the weekend. ​

“She’s the only person in the

winter who comes down and hits

balls under the flood lights.”

Although she was small, she

hit the ball straight every time

and her short play was “deadly,”

Mr Randle said.

“She does it different than

everyone else. She’s going to be

great when she’s older.”

At the Canterbury strokeplay

tournament, Southland’s

Scott Hellier won the men’s

championship after being chased

down by Jake Hallinan. He had

to sink an 2.4m putt on the 18th

hole to secure the title.

Robbie Bell won the men’s

masters by eight shots, while the

women’s masters was taken out

by Geraldine’s Ginny Bolderston,

who beat Di Kay by one shot.

Jones’ anniversary gift

CHRISTCHURCH professional

golfer Shaun Jones was always in

the running for a first wedding

anniversary gift for Switzerlandborn

wife Anita on Monday in

Napier.

But Jones had his work cut

out in a three-way sudden-death

playoff with rookie Justin Morris

and a seasoned Sean Riordan at

the 18-hole Waiohiki course.

Two playoff holes later Jones,

grinning from ear to ear, was

primed to break the news to

the barrister that he had the

perfect “paper gift” – $1900

before tax in prize money for

their first year since they tied

the knot.

Okay, the paper might be 75

per cent cotton and 25 per cent

linen with a polymer security

thread running through it but

it’s a fair hunch to say Mrs Jones

would have had no qualms.

“She’s stuck home at work

and I’m playing golf,” said the

31-year-old who jets off on

March 14 to ply his trade in

Europe, waiting to follow up

with another text.

The couple will be based at

Bern, the hometown of Anita

and capital city of Switzerland.

However, it took two goes

on the par four No 18 hole for

Jones to emerge as the inaugural

champion of the 18-hole

Duke of Gloucester Pro-am

Tournament.

It was quite satisfying for

Jones to pull one back from

Riordan, who had beaten him

in a playoff at Kaikoura about

18 months ago. – Hawke’s Bay

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.

Good storage ideas are abundant and all

manner of products are available to make

homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy

your storage from designer homewares stores,

the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter. Fabric

storage cubes are a great start for disguising

the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and

wardrobes and thanks to competition from the

big department stores, can cost $10 or less

each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven

and metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of

melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A

set of shelves does much the same job as an

expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the

shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots.

It looks good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re

there, check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage products

can make a design statement. The important

thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example,

buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re

looking for really clever home storage ideas

take a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House Living,

downsized her life to under 90sq m and has

interviewed Kiwis who live in architecturally

designed homes of that size or smaller.

Each and every house in Foster’s book uses

storage effectively to tame their belongings.

Some have done it on the smell of an oily rag,

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter

is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage

systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy duty plywood

that only has to be screwed together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’ friends.

The garage is one of the few places in the house

that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra

stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in

stacked crates the better. Consider using flat

pack cupboards that can be taken with you.

The most effective way of using these is to

find a wall where the whole area can be covered

floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level if you’re

handy, or get a handyman in for a few hours, but

make sure it is excluded from the list of chattels

on the sale agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space in Kiwi

homes. A relatively cheap way to open up

the space is to install a loft ladder. You will be

amazed at what people use the additional

storage space for, once they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just limited

to the interior of the house, garage and loft. The

Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other hardware stores

sell garden storage to hide away things usually

left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store garden

tools, outdoor cushions and pool paraphernalia.

The next step up is a cheap garden shed for

around $200 upwards from Mitre 10, Bunnings

Warehouse and other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more inspiration

Google “storage ideas”, search the same on

Pinterest, or check out books on the subject

from your local library. You’ll be amazed at how

many everyday items can be repurposed for

storage at the same time as adding design

excellence to your home.

Charmed at

Chalmers

Davina Richards experiences the

feel-good factor of this local

working men’s club.

IT WAS the rst time I had ever stepped

inside the Hornby Working Men’s Club

& MSA and I had never really known

what goes on behind those doors. It turns

out that there’s plenty to get involved in,

and the volume of members says it all.

e Hornby Working Men’s Club is

located at e Hub Hornby and has been

established for more than 60 years,

boasting more than 7000 members. At its

inception in 1956, it was a men’s only

club, but the decision was made to allow

women to become members in 1982.

My ancé and I met the club treasure,

Brian Purcell, who was kind enough to

show us around the building, which

proved to be very accommodating with a

wide range of excellent facilities,

including a Club Café, Club Bar with a

stage for live music and dance oor,

Sports Hall, modern gaming room, wellequipped

Gymnasium, TAB, meeting

room Chalmers Restaurant and three

function rooms to host weddings,

birthdays and conferences.

Shortly aer our tour we were

introduced to Brian’s wife, Raelene and

enjoyed a drink before entering Chalmers

Restaurant - which was lling up quickly.

e menu was simple and consisted of

hearty traditional fare, such as Catch of

the Day, 250g Rib-Eye Steak and a

Carvery with your choice of favourites

like pork, beef, lamb or chicken.

Greeted with a friendly smile and a

professional demeanour by the staff, I

ordered the Seafood Cocktail followed by

a main meal of Marinated Pork Spare

Ribs coated in tangy barbecue sauce

served with salad and fries... a favourite

dish at the Club, so I’m told. On its

arrival I was pleasantly surprised with

the portion. e pork was succulent

and came off the bone easily, and a

lashing of barbecue sauce was perfect.

My ancé tucked into the blue cod

served with chips and salad and was

content with his perfect aky sh and

its crispy outer coating.

Despite being too full to indulge in a

dessert, I didn’t hesitate to have a

couple of spoonfuls of my ancé’s

Carrot Cake with frosting and vanilla

ice cream, which was almost lifechange.

Suffice to say, I immediately

regretted not having one.

If you have never stepped foot inside

the WMC, it’s worth popping in to

take advantage of its many offerings.

ere is a distinct sense of community,

friendship and fun that lls the entire

venue, and for a small membership fee,

you too can be apart of this feel-good

club.
