Traffic

signals

time

phases

under

scrutiny

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE TIMING of the city’s

amber traffic signals could be

altered by up to a second, in

a bid to curb the growing red

light-running epidemic.

The Star can reveal a multiagency

group, of the Canterbury

Transport Operation Centre,

city council, NZ Transport

Agency and police, has been

working since October on the

project.

The length of the amber

traffic signal could be changed

by up to 1sec. Currently, it sits

between 3.5sec and 5.2sec, depending

on the speed limit and

the intersection’s width.

CTOC manager Ryan Cooney

said the group was also looking

at changing the “all-red phase”

between 0.5sec to 1sec.

That was when every signal

was red at the same time at an

intersection, which gives time

to clear it of vehicles before the

next green phase.

Currently, it was timed for

between 2sec and 3.5sec.

Mr Cooney said the group

would choose whether it

reduced or increased the times

by analysing “whatever gives

us that outcome of improved

safety.”

He said the project was still

in its initial stages and a trial

would have to be undertaken.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

Sometimes there are stories

that just make you sit and

marvel at the absolute

determination the human

spirit can muster.

We have one such story

today.

In June, cyclist and former

Christchurch Boys’ High

student Keagan Girdlestone

was nearly decapitated when,

during a race in Italy, he went

through the window of a support

vehicle.

His list of injuries is such that

those who witnessed the crash

could be forgiven for thinking

he was dead.

Keagan has returned to

Christchurch, incredibly after

learning how to walk again.

His aim a few months ago was

just to be able to cycle to his

neighbourhood cafe in Lincoln.

Now he is lining up Le Race

as the No 1 seed. This is not

only a nod to his incredible

recovery but also that he was

the youngest person to ever

win Le Race back when he was

16-years-old.

All the very best for the race

Keagan.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the arrival of New

Zealand’s first hansom cab in the city on March

21, 1864. On the same day in 1918, the first

meeting of the Canterbury Progress League

(now the Canterbury Promotion Council) was

held. On March 22, 1975, 3000 joggers took

part in The Star’s first City2Surf fun run. (See

this year’s event, p8-9). On March 23, 1866,

the road to the West Coast was opened. On

March 23, 1977, the Durham St overbridge was

Gearing up for next hurdle

• By Gordon Findlater

EIGHT MONTHS ago, Keagan

Girdlestone was learning how

to walk again after nearly being

decapitated in a horror cycle

crash.

On Saturday, after an amazing

recovery, he will ride in

Le Race, a 100km cycle from

Cathedral Square to Akaroa. A

race he also has the honour of

being the youngest ever winner

back in 2014, when he was

16-years-old.

Organisers have seeded him

No 1 for the event, recognition

of his winning effort three years

ago, and for winning his life

back as well.

It is a remarkable feat, considering

it was only in June,

when competing in the Coppa

della Pace race in Italy, his

head crashed through the back

window of a support vehicle, the

glass severing his carotid artery

and jugular vein.

The last thing Girdlestone

remembers is the sound of

spectators yelling at him to slow

down.

Those who witnessed the

crash were reported in media

saying there was no way he

could survive, after nearly being

decapitated.

Girdlestone sustained bruising

to the brain, and in hospital

suffered several small strokes,

CHAMPION:

In 2014

Girdlestone

put himself

on the scene

by becoming

the youngest

ever winner

of Le Race.

READY: Keagan Girdlestone is ready to push the limit on Saturday after receiving news that

he no longer needs to stay on a heart rate restriction. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

going into cardiac arrest. His

prospects of survival were grim

and he remained in a coma for

several days.

But Girdlestone survived

and began the uphill battle of

learning to walk again, but he

always kept his sights on trying

to revive his cycling career.

When he returned to

Christchurch in August he set

himself the goal of being able to

ride to his local coffee shop in

Lincoln.

He achieved the goal by the

start of November.

He has ridden more than

4000km already this year, including

a couple of races,

and believes the sky is now the

limit.

“We’re at the stage now where

we actually have no idea of what

I’m capable of doing,” he said.

Girdlestone’s goal for 2017

is to compete in the Tour of

Southland later this year. He’s

aiming even higher after that.

“I’m hoping that there is

still the possibility for me to

compete at the Commonwealth

games in 2018 in the Gold

Coast,” he said.

“It’s a far cry but if your goals

aren’t big enough that they scare

you, then are they even worth

trying to achieve?”

On Saturday the South

African-born rider will bring

the same fighting spirit to the

iconic Canterbury cycling event,

which still holds a special place

in his heart.

The win in 2014 really kickstarted

things for me. I started

to get a lot of good results after

that and realise my full potential,”

said Girdlestone

Girdlestone says the event is

probably his favourite in New

Zealand and describes it as

short but relentless.

“I’ve done some pretty hard

training rides but being in a

racing situation this will be

substantially harder, it’s going to

hurt like hell,” he said.

Saturday will be the first time

that he can truly push the limit.

Since getting back on the bike

Girdlestone has been on a heart

rate restriction of 145bpm.

However, after recent ultrasounds

it has been discovered

he doesn’t need to worry about

his artery rupturing under load.

The race starts at Cathedral

Square at 8am.

In Brief

SELWYN SEX ATTACK

The woman who comforted

the victim after a sex attack in

Lincoln has come forward, but

has provided little information

for police to go on. A 48-yearold

woman was attacked near

the bend of West Belt and North

Belt after she left the Selwyn

Sounds concert on March 4

at 6.30pm. Detective Senior

Sergeant Scott Anderson said

police still have “a few irons

in the fire” but information

coming in was slowing down.

Several people police identified

as possibly having information

have been spoken too. Anyone

with information about the

attack should phone 363 7400 or

Crimestoppers, anonymously if

necessary, on 0800 555 111.

MINISTER CHALLENGED

A conservation trust manager,

angry at Environment Minister

Nick Smith’s swimmable

river stance, has challenged

him to a boxing match – with

the loser to “frolic” in one of

Christchurch’s most polluted

swimming holes. Greg

Byrnes, a former Environment

Canterbury planner, posted the

challenge in a classified advert

because he said he had seen

the cost of polluted waterways,

and believed Dr Smith was

dismissing the problem.

BARRIERS REMOVED

Part of Madras St has been

restored to three lanes for the

first time since the February

2011 earthquake. The

barriers, between Lichfield

and Tuam Sts, have been

removed. They were installed

by the now defunct Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery Authority

to create a safe fall area to

protect the public from the

dangerous facade on the

216 Madras St building. The

building’s owner has been

served with an earthquakeprone

building notice to replace

the barriers with shipping

containers.

Traffic signal time review

•From page 1

“We’re considering how these

phase times change driver behaviour

and how that will effect

driver decisions.”

Mr Cooney said there was

“definitely” a correlation

between crashes and red lightrunners.

At the city’s worst 13 intersections

on a single day last year,

6580 vehicles ran red lights.

That was an increase from

2014 with 3974 and 2015 on

4960.

CTOC figures for 2016 showed

the worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a day.

There were 65 injury crashes

after drivers ran red lights, up

from 42 in 2015, according to

police data.

If the changes were made, they

could speed up travel times, as

drivers wouldn’t need to wait for

red light-runners to move, Mr

Cooney said.

In comparison, Auckland’s

average amber phase time on

roads with a speed limit lower

than 70km/h was 4.5sec, while

in Dunedin it was 4sec for a

50km/h speed limit.

Mr Cooney said a trial to

test the effects of any ideas or

changes would need to be done,

but it was not known how or

when that would happen.

Road policing manager

Inspector Al Stewart said “nine

times out of 10 you might get

away with it, but that one time

you don’t, you’re going to get

seriously injured or seriously

injure someone else.”

Via Strada senior traffic

engineer and transport planner

Glen Koorey said altering the

all red phase and amber signals

was often used to stop red lightrunning.

But the risk was once drivers

got used to the new timing, they

may figure out new ways of getting

around it, he said.

Young criminals

• By Andrew King

THE NUMBER of youth

committing aggravated

robberies in the city is on the

rise, with a criminologist saying

it is only a matter of time before

someone is seriously hurt or

killed.

Police say there has been

a small increase in the

number of youth committing

crime, but the bigger

concern was the severity

of the crimes being committed

like aggravated

robbery.

“Weapons are being

used by youth during robberies.

Sometimes even

firearms during robberies,

which is a huge concern to

us, as the risk of someone

getting hurt is very high,”

Senior Sergeant Phil Newton

said.

Police data shows, in 2015,

there were 22 aggravated robberies

committed by offenders

between the ages of 10-19, with

29 in 2016 and four in January.

Canterbury University criminologist

Greg Newbold said it

was only a matter of time before

shopkeepers took matters into

their own hands, including the

Todd

use of weapons.

Canterbury metro

commander Superintendent

Lane Todd strongly advised

retailers not to take the law into

their own hands.

The risk [of injury] gets

heightened quite quickly

when people fight back and

that is the last thing we

want,” he said.

He said police advise

anyone confronted by an

armed offender to fully

comply and then phone 111.

“While we have had

a recent spike in armed

robberies we have had

quite a high success rate

of apprehending these

offenders and dealing with

them through the courts,”

he said.

Senior Sergeant Newton

said there is often little reward

for the robbers.

He said the maximum penalty

for aggravated robbery is 14

years in prison and police were

“amazed at the huge risks taken

for so little reward.”

“It is very rare that offenders

get away with more than $1000;

it is more like a couple of hundred,”

he said.

CDHB may pay for late surgeries

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CANTERBURY could lose $24

million in funding for surgeries

because the health board has

failed to meet Government

targets.

Rebuild work on operating

theatres and doctor strikes in

January have meant the Canterbury

District Health Board has

fallen 515 surgeries behind its

target this year.

Some patients have been left

waiting more than six months

for treatment or a first assessment.

That breaks Government

funding conditions, of which

the penalty is a funding cut.

The Ministry of Health has

written to the CDHB to say the

penalty will be $24 million, but

it will not decide until June if it

will charge or waive the penalty.

CDHB still plans to carry out

its target of more than 20,000

surgeries this year, so it will have

to find a way to make up the

cost if the penalty is charged.

Its budget for the year is already

in the red, with a shortfall

forecast of more than $39 million.

Ministry of Health service

commissioning director Jill

Lane said the decision whether

to charge the penalty would

depend on the CDHB reducing

the number of long-waiting

patients and achieving its target.

That means having fewer than

one per cent of patients waiting

for more than six months and

completing the year’s target of

20,982 surgeries by June.

The target was set by the

CDHB based on what it believed

it could achieve, but problems

like the doctor strikes disrupted

the schedule, a report said. It

deferred 916 outpatient appointments

during the three-day

strike in January.

Chief executive David Meates

said the rebuild of the hospital

was also partially responsible.

He said it had a recovery

plan, which included

outsourcing some surgery to

private providers.

“However, the fact remains we

continue to be constrained by

our lack of theatre capacity until

our new facilities are complete

next year,” he said.

He said the health board was

“acutely aware” of the threat of a

financial penalty.

Health board acting chairman

Mark Solomon did not respond

to emails or calls from The Star.

Health board member Jo Kane

said the CDHB had no extra

money to cover a shortfall.

“We can’t close down the cancer

ward, or close down ED for

a couple of days. We don’t have

pots of money anywhere that we

can pull money from to cover

this,” she said.

She said its only option would

be to “beg” Minister of Health

Jonathan Coleman for funding.

The Star asked Dr Coleman

if he would consider a bail-out,

but he did not respond.

Canterbury Charity Hospital

it was having to expand the

amount of surgery it did to fill

They’re progressively restricting

Confusion

surrounding

Cathedral

announcement

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE ANGLICAN Diocese

appears not to know when an

announcement about the Christ

Church Cathedral will be made,

or who will make it.

Great Christchurch Buildings

Trust co-chairman Jim

Anderton said last week he was

expecting an announcement on

the future of the Cathedral last

Friday. But diocese spokesman

Jayson Rhodes said that was

“news to us”.

He said the diocese did not

know when an announcement

would be made, or whether it

would be made by the diocese or

by Government.

Anglican Church Property

Trustees have been in talks with

Government this week, trying

to reach a deal, but Mr Rhodes

said they were taking the talks

“day-by-day”.

Bishop Victoria Matthews

has previously revealed she was

taken by surprise by the collapse

of an agreement in December, as

she expected it would be “sorted

out” by Christmas.

said the numbers were up on

last year’s event, especially in the

Sport Canterbury 6km event.

She said more than 150 teams

entered, which ranged from

teams of five, to He Waka Tapu’s

1200.

The introduction of healthy

food options and free fruit at the

finish line was a success, she said.

“It was a great community

event with a great atmosphere.

Overall it was another successful

event and we’ll be announcing

Questions

over emergency

services

precinct delay

• By Bridget Rutherford

THOSE OVERSEEING the

Justice and Emergency Services

Precinct are refusing to say

whether the company contracted

to build it is having to make

penalty payments for the delay.

Fletcher Construction has

pushed the $300 million project’s

hand-over date to the Ministry

of Justice back from March 31 to

later this year. It would now hand

over the justice building by June

30 and the emergency services

building by July 14.

Both Fletcher and the ministry

cite commercial sensitivity over

the project as the reason for

refusing to comment on whether

penalty payments are being made

for the late delivery.

Neither would say what the reason

for the delays were. It comes

after the anchor project was

partly blamed for Fletcher’s profit

downgrade of up to $150 million,

unveiled on Monday.

A ministry spokesman said

after the hand-over, the buildings’

tenants would begin the fit-out of

their new spaces.

$9k moving cost no bull

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CHAPMAN’S Homer

sculpture – a symbol of

Christchurch’s post-earthquake

strength – has cost nearly

$10,000 to move to seven spots

around the city.

The 1.8 tonne bronze bull on a

grand piano sculpture, by New

Zealand artist Michael Parekowhai,

first arrived in 2012.

It was well loved, which in

2013, prompted the Christchurch

Art Gallery to begin a

public fundraising campaign to

buy it for more than $1 million.

Gallery director Jenny Harper

said to move the sculpture seven

times since it arrived, had cost

$9688.

It had its own crates, but the

gallery hired either a loader

crane or forklift to move it into

place, which could cost up to

$185 an hour, she said.

“It takes four gallery technicians

between two and five

hours to install Chapman’s

Homer at each new site.”

The sculpture first sat on an

empty Madras St site for 30

days. City council figures show

the cost of placing it there was

$2323.

It was then moved to the

POPULAR: Michael Parekowhai’s Chapman’s Homer sculpture

has cost $9688 to move around the city.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Arts Centre, costing $1656.

Two months later it was placed

outside the city council building

for $1789.

After two months there, it

moved to PlaceMakers Riccarton

for three months, costing

$600, before New Regent St at a

cost of $1475.

It stayed there for four months

before heading to Christchurch

International Airport. That

move cost $934.

When the art gallery reopened

in late 2015, Chapman’s Homer

was shown in its NZI Foyer

before being placed at its current

spot outside the gallery in

September. The final move was

the cheapest, at $606.

Ms Harper said Chapman’s

Homer would remain at its current

location for the long term.

But it was not necessarily

permanent because its collection

was available to other galleries

on a cost-recovery basis, she

said.

She said every time it was

moved, the gallery needed to

advise its insurer and get formal

permission from the land owner.

Chapman’s Homer was first

exhibited in Venice, where Mr

Parekowhai represented New

Zealand at the 2011 Venice Biennale.

It was then shown at the

musée de quai Branly in Paris.

It came to Christchurch in

the wake of the February 2011

earthquake and the city fell in

love with it prompting the Back

the Bull PledgeMe fundraising

campaign.

Ms Harper said because of the

“commercially sensitive” nature

of the purchase contract, the

gallery could not disclose the

exact price paid – but it was over

$1 million.

She said the city council’s

public art advisory group put

$300,000 into it, and $206,500

was raised through the

PledgeMe campaign.

Westpac and the gallery’s

foundation matched the

PledgeMe figure raised, she said.

Have

your say!

It is that time of year when all the councils, including Environment Canterbury,

will be asking the community for feedback on the annual plan for the coming

financial year (2017/18).

You should see information from your local council about how to give feedback on

planned activity close to home - and you are invited by Environment Canterbury to

give feedback on activity proposed across the region outlined in our draft Annual Plan.

We work closely with your local council on many projects but we do cover different

activity so it is important to engage in both processes if you want to have a say.

For the Environment Canterbury plan:

▪ Visit ecan.govt.nz/haveyoursay, view the short summary document and/or the

full draft 2017/18 Annual Plan and use the online form to send your feedback in

▪ Email ecinfo@ecan.govt.nz to arrange a time to talk to Councillors in May

▪ Pick up a hard copy summary and form from your local Environment Canterbury office.

Please note, the closing date for feedback or to request a time to meet with

Environment Canterbury Councillors is 5pm on Friday 21 April.

Disruption worth it

THE EAST side of the

central city is packed

with rebuild work

these days and, while

progress is good, this

does cause disruptions

for everyone who lives

in, travels through or uses that

part of town.

It can be challenging getting

down Manchester St at the

moment. The street is being

transformed into a tree-lined

boulevard as part of the vibrant

and modern vision for our central

city.

The frustration some have

felt towards An Accessible City

– the transport chapter of the

Christchurch Central Recovery

Plan – is entirely understandable.

I think some of the concerns

that have been raised are valid.

Still, the current irritations will

be worth it in the end when our

streets have been broadened,

repaved and purpose-built for a

modern, liveable city.

I know the city council and

Otakaro Ltd are listening to the

public’s concerns and I encourage

the public to contact these

agencies if they have

issues with any accessible city

projects.

The first section of the shared

Gerry Brownlee

pathway on the western side

between Hereford and Lichfield

Sts is now open and shows us how

Manchester St will look when

finished.

The paving work will continue,

followed by the planting of new

trees and then a priority route

for public transport will be

added.

Tucked away behind the fences

and cones, initial earthworks are

under way on the first East Frame

superlot, with construction work

on the 2800 sq m site, near the

Canterbury Club, starting next

month.

The East Frame will include

900 townhouses and apartments,

bringing more residents to the

regenerating city centre.

These significant projects are

going on in a relatively small

space, so I encourage everyone to

keep supporting the businesses in

the area, grab a coffee and wander

down the new pathway.

•Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Readers respond to

news that the intersection

of Ilam, Middleton and

Riccarton Rds, which was

ranked as the city’s second

most dangerous, will be

upgraded in 2019

Russell Vaughan,

Redwood – I travelled for 30

years until 2004 through this

intersection and during some of

that time there were no lights.

There were many chances,

which I lobbied the city council

over, to change the approaches

by cutting back the opposing

corners on Middleton Rd and

Ilam Rd, thus creating better

visibility and road markings for

traffic turning right onto Riccarton

Rd.

After the earthquakes, there

was a chance to cut back on the

veterinary clinic side of Ilam Rd.

No meaningful changes were

ever made. Now the costs are

said to be $1 million, and nothing

done until 2019.

The confusion over right-hand

turning traffic swinging across

each other, and pedestrians,

cyclists and vehicles competing

for priority, continues to plague

this intersection. It’s arguably

the most confusing intersection

in Christchurch.

Jan Nolan, Upper

Riccarton – I don’t think $1

million needs to be spent on this

TRICKY: A car on Riccarton Rd breaks to avoid a car turning into

Ilam Rd. The intersection is ranked as the city’s second most

dangerous.

intersection. Just put dedicated

right turning arrows from Ilam

Rd and Middleton Rd into

Riccarton Rd. All fixed.

Annie McConnochie,

Upper Riccarton, responds

to a joint transport

committee report on the

need to improve public

transport uptake in greater

Christchurch over the

coming decades

It could be an interesting

idea to look into suggesting or

requesting those Government

staffers and council members to

consider taking the bus one day

a week.

This would be to ease traffic

congestion, and also to set a

good example and to check out

suggestions bus drivers have to

offer in regard to intersections

where it could help to have

a green right-turn arrow –

mainly at very busy intersections

– so they are not compelled to

run the red light to carry on and

keep to their time schedule and

so on.

SMALL CHANGE

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at

Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community.

Kiwi dollars, international currency, small change from your cup

of coffee, plus a top-up donation from us, all add up for local

charities and community projects.

180 Degrees Trust uses outdoor adventures to inspire

and teach life skills to vulnerable Canterbury youth, to

develop self-awareness, confidence and decision making

skills and so initiate a turnaround in young people’s lives.

Christchurch Airport proudly supports the 180 Degrees

Trust through the Community Fund.

‘Protect our water’

Readers respond to

news the Santa Parade

may be forced to finish up

AT-RISK: The annual Santa Parade is now in jeopardy

because of funding problems.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

Michael J Brathwaite –

The Santa Parade is as worthy

as any of the other public events

the council sponsors. I’m certain

that the 83 per cent of us who

are motorists would rather see

around $100,000 spent on that

than see untold millions wasted

on cycle lanes used by fewer

than 15 per cent of us. Whereas

the Santa Parade brings pleasure

to a large percentage of our residents,

cycle lanes make driving

a nightmare with the restrictions

on parking and turning

into side streets, along with the

extra traffic lights.

Jo Hayes-Smith – What is

wrong with the city council. We

have been ratepayers for 33 years

and we are appalled they are

not totally funding the parade.

$200,000 is a drop in the bucket.

How mean-spirited they are.

John Thompson – The

city council sponsored the New

Zealand Women’s Open golf to

the tune of $450,000. There is

no golf anymore so they could

use some of that for the Santa

Parade.

Nideen Kidd – Oh my

goodness what sad, sad news to

hear! Maybe if they just stuck

with the theme of Santa floats

and not just a truck with people

holding up a sign saying where

they are from, banging on

drums and blowing whistles.

They are losing sight of entertaining

the kids. Last year’s one

looked like they had a float from

every country!

To me, that’s not a Santa

parade. I could see my child

and many others getting very

bored and asking: Is this for

Christmas?

Would be very sad to lose this

icon.

AS WE close in

on election day, it

is becoming clear

that Bill English

and National have

a strategy to hit the

pause and delay button

on the hard issues.

In the last few days, we’ve

seen them kick the can of water

bottling down the road to the

never-never of the post-election

paradise. This is neither good

enough nor acceptable.

Water is an incredibly valuable

public resource and it is being used

for commercial profit. I believe

that the public have a right to get a

return for New Zealand on this.

Most people would say that

if you’re coming here, taking

this water, putting it in a bottle,

charging a premium, and sending

it overseas, then fairness dictates

that you should contribute

something back. I also believe

that voters deserve to know where

their politicians stand on this issue

before the election.

Nick Smith has been contorting

all over the place on this issue

and has tried to justify National’s

failure to confront the issue by

arguing that bottled water is a tiny

fraction of the trillions of litres of

fresh water in New Zealand. This

is both irrelevant and misleading.

In the numbers he is employing,

he includes all the water in floods

and all the river water that is not

even clean enough to swim in, let

alone drink.

In Christchurch and

Canterbury, we have an incredibly

precious, scarce and valuable

resource in our pristine mineral

water that is clean enough to

drink without treatment. From

Ashburton, to Belfast to Kaiapoi,

we have seen communities

horrified at the prospect of giving

away millions of litres of this

precious resource for as little as the

occasional $100 administration fee

to the local council.

Nick Smith has dismissed

these concerns as trivial. This

is not good enough. We need a

Government which will stand

up for us and protect our water.

Bill English and his National

Government have proven time and

time again that they’re just not up

to the task.

For all your blind repair and cleaning requirements

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

service, providing a fast turn-around,

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on.

for at least 8 years, and many up to 20

years. Whatever the job involves, they

will work hard to make sure it gets done,

including one job of 800 blinds which

they completed in 4 days.

Rappers face off in battle

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THERE IS one person Selwyn

Hose will not want to see in the

audience when he gets up on

stage this weekend – his mum.

He is one of the local rappers

preparing for the RedZone Live

Christchurch Rap Battle this

weekend, where they will face

off against others visiting from

around the country.

The rap battle is a way to

encourage up-and-coming

Christchurch hip hop talent.

But Hose, known in the hip

hop community as True, said

nothing will be safe from the

flying insults when the rap battle

starts – even his mother.

“My mum has heard some of

this stuff and she’s not impressed

. . . she’s like, why bring me into

it?”

But although the insults will

fly, he said there was more than

that to winning a rap battle.

The battle will have three

rounds and the winner of each

round will be judged based on

their flow, style, cadence and wittiness

of their lines, he said.

He said it took hours of preperation

– including hours spent

studying an opponent for their

weaknesses.

Music, rather than battle rap,

was his first love.

He writes and records around

his day job as a broadband cable

jointer.

But he’s loved rap since he was

about 10, and discovered a rap

cassette tape at his local op-shop.

“Me and my friends at school

would freestyle to each other,

and over time that turned into

battling each other, and it developed

from there, the love of it,”

• By Gabrielle Stuart

STORIES ABOUT a wool shed

used after World War 2 to store

equipment and dragon boating

on the Avon have been shared

through an online red zone ideamapping

tool.

Regenerate Christchurch has

been working to collect people’s

stories from the land before it

makes decisions about the future

of the red zone.

Chief executive Ivan

Iafeta said he was open to all

ideas from the community, right

down to Christchurch’s youngest

residents.

More than 1000 children’s ideas

for the red zone have already

been collected on postcards.

Some asked for theme parks or

zoos, but about a quarter asked

for green spaces.

“Children are the future users,

leaders and residents of our city

and we’re creating a legacy for

them,” Mr Iafeta said.

The online feedback on the red

zone was originally planned to

close this month, but has been

extended until April 24.

Next month, workshops for

young design teams are set to

be held, where they can share

their ideas while being helped

The Star

BIG IDEAS: More than 1000

ideas for the red zone have

been shared by children,

through the process by engineers

and designers.

This weekend, a community

day will be held, where people

can take free guided tours of

the red zone, give feedback and

share their ideas.

The red zone community

day will run from 10am-

3pm on Saturday at Haeata

Community Campus,

240 Breezes Rd, Wainoni.

Stories and information

about red zone land can

also be shared online

until April 24 at engage.

Actor gets married, takes on drag queen role

CENTRE STAGE: Tom Worthington as Adam Whitely (left), Isaac

Pawson as Anthony ‘Tick’ Belrose and Cameron Douglas as

Bernadette Bassenger in Showbiz Christchurch’s production of

Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE FIRST time Isaac

Pawson was transformed into

a drag queen he thought he

would feel quite self-conscious

and uncomfortable.

But the moment

he stepped into what

were “very steep

heels”, caked on

the make-up and

dressed in bright

attire, he felt himself

come out of his shell.

“I kind of got this

feeling of what it

could be like and

why people do it . . . you are

not quite yourself. You can put

on a bit of character and add

some new attributes,” he said.

Naturally an introvert,

Pawson, 22 has found

pursuing an acting career

and playing particularly

flamboyant roles has helped

push him out of his comfort

zone.

The Cashmere resident

will feature in one of the

leading roles in Showbiz

Christchurch’s latest

production of Priscilla Queen

of the Desert.

Playing Anthony ‘Tick’

Belrose – whose drag name is

Isaac

Pawson

‘Mitzi Mitosis’ – it will be his

first major role in a large-scale

show since graduating from

the National Academy of

Singing and Dramatic Art last

year.

The musical tells the story

of two Sydney drag queens

and a male transgender who

are contracted to travel to

Alice Springs to put on a

drag show.

As part of a journey of

self-discovery for the three

friends, Tick finally gets to

meet his son after coming

out as gay.

Pawson said while the show

will be a “feast of the eyes”

and filled with quick, fiery

one-liners and sass, it carries a

strong message of acceptance

and not judging people for the

way they appear to be.

“We want to represent the

real people who experience

this lifestyle of drag and

obviously have quirks about

them but are still genuine

real people that aren’t just

characters,” he said.

Pawson got married to his

best friend of more than 10

years, Beth Alexander, just last

month.

“We are not ones to stick

to tradition a lot of the time

just for the sake of it and we

knew we wanted to be together

forever so we thought why not

make that official now,” he

said.

But it has not been easy for

the couple who have barely

seen each other since their

marriage.

While Pawson has been

busy with Priscilla Queen

of the Desert, his Aucklandbased

wife has been shooting

a television feature on

the famous New Zealand

thoroughbred racehorse, Kiwi.

“It has been really tough

and is not something I would

recommend to anyone, but

it comes with the territory

of being in this industry,”

Pawson said.

He is planning to move up

to Auckland to be with his

wife shortly after the show

finishes.

•Priscilla Queen of the

Desert will run at the

Isaac Theatre Royal from

March 24 to April 8. To

Play questions our tolerance

The Curious Incident of

the Dog in the Night-

Time, adapted by Simon

Stephens from the novel

by Mark Haddon, directed

by Lara Macgregor, at the

Court Theatre

Reviewed by Barry

Southam

THIS PRODUCTION has a

stellar performance from Tim

Earl about a troubled young

man who can’t bear being

touched.

The young man, Christopher,

is certainly not your

normal person – his take on

language is different from

yours and mine and he is a

whizz at mathematics.

The play celebrates Christopher

who is most certainly an

outsider of the first order. He

with some behavioural

problems,” and these

come to the fore as he tries to

from the production.

discover who has murdered

a dog with a pitchfork. In the

process he beats himself up

and angers his father who just

wants him to stay out of other

people’s business.

Mark Wright as the father

was initially too loud in his

frustration, but fortunately

tones it down quickly. His son

is very much the centre of the

play. The characters surrounding

Christopher are revealed

by readings from a book

Christopher has written. The

The Star

device works well and we also

get to know Christopher in all

his differences.

At one point a circular railway

track descends onto the

stage around which a toy train

travels, though the significance

of this is not immediately

obvious.

However, in a later scene

Christopher struggles with

the London tube, the chaos of

which is brilliantly portrayed

on the Court’s stage. The play

has Christopher on the verge

of autism and expects us to

examine our own attitudes to

people who are not the same

as us. We are being required to

“walk in someone else’s shoes,”

and thus become more accepting

of difference, to be more

patient and tolerant in our

dealings with others.

Tim Earl played the part of

Christopher in an Auckland

production before coming

to Christchurch and thus a

very well-rounded rendition

results. He is backed by an accomplished

cast as you would

expect from the team at The

Court. Well worth seeing.

The Curious Incident of

the Dog in the Night-Time

runs until April 22.

are thought to be

important: empathy,

We fairly well represent New

Zealand society and

as such, our students

study alongside

students from varying

backgrounds. Through

this alone they

develop empathy,

self-control, and a

deep understanding

of diversity which we

embrace. Our students

develop into young

adults where they are

strong in their own

identity; they have

integrity.

We know that Hillmorton students

www.hillmorton.school.nz

take a broad range of pathways

on leaving school including

university, and understand

the value of hard work and

determination.

We continue to work to

understand how to teach in ways

that help to develop “grit” and

resiliency. We know to praise

“effort” and I encourage all

parents to do the same.

Working together, our young

people are developing the positive

dispositions, skills and knowledge

needed so that they can indeed

create great futures.

studying at Otago University and Jennifer is also pursuing her tertiary

Visiting science show popular with students

The Science Roadshow is a touring exhibition

of demonstrations and hands-on interactive

exhibits teaching students about science and

technology.

It provides an exciting and stimulating

blend of science-technology education and

entertainment. Each year the roadshow tours

with an

entirely new

programme

of more than

60 handson

exhibits,

two informative and entertaining demonstrations, and

various resources and activities for schools.

The opportunity to get their hands on the various

exhibits proved very popular with all the Year 7 to 10

students who visited.

Performance enthralls combined audience

The hall was

packed this week

with students

from Our Lady

of Assumption

and Hoon Hay as

Hillmorton hosted

New Zealand

performance of Don

Pasquale.

The students were

enthralled and in

particular loved the

guest appearance

of an OLA staff

member!

Athletes give their best

To attain personal bests

(PBs) or records in any

sport, at any level is a great

goal for any athlete.

At Hillmorton High School,

there are some longstanding

records that have

stood the test of time.

Beverley Peterson, who

attended Hillmorton in the

1970s, went on to compete

for New Zealand. She still

holds a number of track and

field records at the school

and at Canterbury Secondary

Schools’ level: her record for the

Under 19 Girls 100 metres still

stands.

Though the competition was tough

at the recent school athletics with

many students giving their best,

there are still a number of records

remaining from the 1970s, and the

oldest from 1966!

Records were set in the pool also

– with para-athlete, Celyn Edwards

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Farm life has

plenty to offer

young people

WINNER: Dave Mitchell, Addington.

LAKE WANAKA: Mary Shirtcliffe, Hornby.

KOMBI: Jaran Parker, 12,

Rolleston.

From city girl to sharemilker to equity

farmer, North Canterbury’s Wendy Croft has

come a long way in a sector that allows young

people to work hard and prosper.

“I was working in a bank before I got into

farming. I had never milked a cow, but we got

into sharemilking to save money, and it was

easier for me to manage it than to get someone

else to do it.”

Three years ago Wendy

enrolled in Ara Institute

of Canterbury’s NZ

Diploma in Agribusiness

Management; a practical

qualification for working

farmers that is delivered

online with face to face

tutorials in Culverden.

The programme is

run with the Primary

ITO and was rated as

“excellent” by the New

Zealand Qualifications

Authority (NZQA) in a

recent report.

With two young

children and a business

to run, Wendy balanced her studies with her

family and work commitments.

““I think my husband and I worked together

every day for three years! It was hard, and it’s

not for everyone. It’s challenging but it’s really

rewarding.”

Does she miss her city lifestyle? “Yes,

sometimes I miss the city, but I love the lifestyle

here – I have good neighbours and good staff.”

Student accommodation

facility up for auction

NEWLY-opened Canterbury

University student

accommodation, which was

converted from a rest home, is to

be sold by its Hamilton owners

who have committed to their

next project.

Kirkwood Avenue Hall accommodating

74 full-time

students, opened this year, as a

self-catered facility for first year

students.

The property, from 7-15

Kirkwood Ave was previously St

Nicolas Aged Care Facility, operated

by Bupa New Zealand.

The change from a rest home

to university accommodation

was contentious, with neighbouring

residents concerned it

would result in more traffic and

noise.

They were also worried about

the lack of consultation on it,

because it was a non-notified

resource consent.

But the university got the goahead

in November 2015 when

resource consent was granted.

Colliers International

Christchurch investment broker

Courtney Doig is marketing the

property for auction on April 13.

The land holding of 5900 sq m

is in three titles and the building

building that was converted from the St Nicolas Aged Care

facility is up for sale.

itself covers 2630 sq m.

Ms Doig said the new hall had

helped to address a scarcity of

quality student accommodation

close to the university. The university

had a 12-year lease on the

recently-refurbished property

with a further right of renewal of

nine years.

“This is a highly sought

after area, right in the heart of

residential Ilam/Upper Riccarton.

There are a number of

savvy buyers looking for student

accommodation investments,

however, there have been very

few conversions of this scale and

quality.”

Ms Doig said six ownership

units just along the road at 12

Kirkwood Ave, also leased by the

university, sold in 2015 for $1.4

million.

“We think this latest property

will be snapped up by someone

looking for a significant land

holding with a solid tenant covenant

that earns annual rent of

$320,000 net,” she said.

PEOPLE I 2

For people who don’t want hearing aids but need them

Audiologist, Greg Foote, has served the

Canterbury region for many years.

One of the most common complaints

Greg hears is “Everyone mumbles”, this

is perhaps the first sign of hearing loss.

Other common statements include: “I

can’t hear in noisy places”, “My family

complains the TV is too loud”, “I often

misunderstand what is being said to me”.

If any of these comments sound like

you, it might be time to talk with an

audiologist.

Like most things associated with our

body, the saying ‘use it or lose it’, holds

true for hearing.

Current research suggests that people

who suffer from hearing loss may have

an overall increased risk of physical and

mental health deterioration. The overall

message to take away from this is to

treat the hearing loss sooner rather than

later, before brain changes may occur.

Hearing loss manifests itself in many

ways, and quality of life for all concerned

deteriorates. It is stressful for those

communicating with a person with

hearing loss and fatiguing for the hearing

impaired individual as they need to

concentrate more to understand what is

being said. This increased concentration

can cause difficulty when multi tasking at

You can’t see it, but you

can hear the difference!

home, in group situations or driving. Due

to the effort of trying to focus on speech,

listening fatigue has even been shown to

increase the risk of falls in older adults.

The latest hearing aid technology offers a

person the ability to listen and understand

in a variety of listening situations with a

minimal ease on the users part. Hearing

aids reduce the listening effort in multiple

activities including communication.

Appropriately fitted hearing aids and

realistic expectations of the wearer

provide an improved quality of life.

Hearing aids come in a variety of styles

and options to fit individual needs. For

a person who wants total convenience

to adjust their hearing aids, there is an

optional range of wireless accessories

including a Smartphone and in some cases

you can leave your initial appointment

with a hearing aid fitted and adjusted to

your personal preference.

Book an appointment now to discuss

how to best resolve your hearing

problem, initial consultation and hearing

4 QUESTIONS WITH...andrew little - Labour leader

1> I imagine it must be hard to find

time for exercise, what do you do to

stay in shape?

You do have to make the time for it so I

build a lot of fitness into my daily routines. I

like to take the stairs whenever I can which

my staff love when they accompany me back

to the office! I walk as many places as I can.

I do the dog walking duties at home as much

as I can. I tend to take Harry on the power

walks so we go up the steep hills not just for

his aerobic fitness, but mine too. When I can

get into the gym I do. I get in the kayak when

I can, and on the bike too in the summer time.

In winter, I try to get one or two days skiing

in. All that adds up to staying fit and then

there’s the basics, watching your diet, good

nutrition, sleep and a balanced life.

2> 2017 saw the removal of your

glasses. Was this under a stylist’s

guidance or are we set to see a bit of a

mini-makeover?

I made the decision last year about contacts

and also looked into laser surgery too. It was

mainly because when I was reviewing videos

of myself I could see how my glasses were

cutting my eyeline off. To be honest I never

had a good pair that haven’t cut my eyeline off.

I wore contacts a lot when I was younger so

I thought I’d go back to that. The good thing

is you get your full peripheral vision back so it

does make a difference. And it’s one less thing

to worry about, what’s on your face. It feels

better, it feels lighter on my face and so I feel

better. No stylist was harmed in the making

of this change!

3> You’re clearly a fighter for the

underdog having spent years as a lawyer

for the Engineers Union but you’re

also a fighter and survivor of prostate

cancer. Can you tell us if your diagnosis

made your focus or shift your focus on

any issues?

You’re confronted with your mortality and

it does make you think about your

priorities and what you want to achieve in life.

It does make you value the people around

you, especially family who are closest to you.

If things turn out differently you know they’re

the ones most affected so you think very

carefully about that. It’s not that I left a lot to

chance, but you do take a bit more control of

your life knowing that anything can happen at

any time and you want to make the best out

of it every day of your life and achieve your

goals.

4> What do you do to unwind/relax

after a big working day?

Increasingly it’s music. Whoever invented

Spotify has done me a wonderful favour

because you can take it anywhere. If I’m in a

hotel room at the end of the day or even at

home winding down I dig out the phone and

crank up Spotify. Just half an hour of that is

really helpful. If it’s earlier in the day and it’s a

pleasant evening and I’m at home I sit out the

back with a book or head down to the beach

with the kayak or take the dog for another

long walk often with my wife Leigh as well, so

I find plenty of ways to relax.

3 I TRAVEL

the other garden city

It’s a popoular belief that Singapore is merely another big city

that is little more than a convienient gateway to other

destinations in Southeast Asia. Spend a day there and you’ll

very quickly squash this myth.

Compact, clean and convienient, Singapore’s

diverse melting pot of cultures and races

means there’s never a dull corner. Known as

the most expensive city in the world it’s ironic

that Singpore is also the home to a huge

number of eclectic budget shops, and

incredibly cheap street food.

If like me you’re happy to explore by foot,

Singapore is an incredibly easy to navigate

country. Geographically it’s small, only 720

km2, so if it’s shopping you’re after, you’ll only

need to travel as far as the iconic Orchard

Road to find the 2 kilometres of retail therapy

heaven,

To step away from the towering

skyscrapers and busy traffic it’s only a short

taxi ride to quaint neighbourhoods where

tradition meets modernity, such as

Chinatown, Dempsey Hill and Tiong Bahru.

Tiong Bahru, is an incredible little historic

community that still retains some of its

ramshackle charm. With small lanes and an

obvious nod towards Art Deco architecture,

you can purchase a ‘kopi’ from one of the

traditional coffee shops or visit the bustling

sunday markets. Or as a complete contrast

peruse hipster boutiques for one-of-a-kind

jewelry and clothing and linger over a

cappachino at one of the trendy new haunts.

A trip to Singapore isn’t comlete without

trying a fish spa. Put your feet in the tank of

warm freshwater containing loads of

Garra rufa fish. These ‘doctor fish’ nibble

away dry or dead skin and emit a micro

vibrating sensations which massages your

feet.

If you prefer your fish on your plate,

discovering local flavours at one of the wet

markets is a must. Wet market is so-called

because people throw buckets of water on

the ground after cleaning fish and so the floor

is more than often wet. A popular choice is

the vibrant and colorful Tikka market. With

nearly 300 stalls, a food court and

shopping area, unlike most other wet markets

in Singapore that close at midday, the hum of

the Tikka market continues until late

afternoon.

Do as the locals do and join a snaking

hawker queue to feast on authentic local eats.

Unlike some of Singapores neighbours you

neednt worry that your chicken skewer might

make you spend the rest of the trip in the

bathroom, all of the street food is now served

in government-regulated Hawker centres. It’s

easy to tell which are the best vendors: the

longer the line, the better the food.

For an activity that’s more serine, swing by

the Singapore Botanic Gardens and explore

the lush plants and flowers. There’s the cloud

forest, which features a jaw dropping 35m tall

mountain covered in tropical plants with the

world’s tallest indoor waterfall. Take a lift to

the top of the mountaintop to take a stroll

along a walkway in the clouds for a stunning

aerial view of the mountainside below. The

flower dome is equally impressive, as the

largest glass greenhouse in the world with an

awe inspiring and ever-changing collection of

mediteraneon flowers.

Much like the neighbourhood contrasts

between old and new, you can easily enjoy

Singapore on a shoestring budget, but it’s

equally as easy to splurge.

The idea of the Christchurch to Little River

Railtrail was to transform the former railway

route into a trail catering for walkers and

cyclists wanting to avoid the busy traffic on

the main road and enjoy the stunning vistas of

the area.

The full track will take you a good 38kms

to ride but it’s been designed so you can bike

bite size sections of it. Each section holds it’s

own unique draw cards, so grab your bike and

nibble off some of the trail.

HORNBYTO PREBBLETON

Distance: 4KM Difficulty: EASY

This section starts about 400 m south of the

Shands Road/Halswell Junction Road

intersection on Shands Road where a small

car park is available. Fully sealed the track

takes you through Prebbleton on the old

railway corridor.

PREBBLETON TO LINCOLN

Distance: 10KM Difficulty: EASY

The track starts at the Birchs Road/Trices

Road intersection and is a seven kilometer

off-road ashphalt pathway alongside Birchs

Road to the township of Lincoln. It runs

alongside the original railway line through

pleasant rural surroundings and is wide

enough to enable cycling in both directions.

LINCOLN TO AHURIRI RESERVE

Distance: 10KM Difficulty: EASY

This section connects Lincoln to the Ahuriri

Reserve utilising a number of sub-sections and

on-road segments.

AHURIRI TO MOTOKARARA

Distance: 4KM Difficulty: EASY

The route is adjacent to the Halswell

Canal but deviates away onto farmland for a

approximately 1.7 kilometers to reduce the

impact of disturbance on the visiting bird life.

The bird life will be a key attraction of this

unique wetland area.

MOTOKARARA TO BIRDLINGS FLAT

Distance: 13KM Difficulty: EASY

Most of this section of the Railtrail runs

alongside Lake Ellesmere, where the railway

embankment is raised above the lake and

adjoining wetlands, affording magnificent views

of the surroundings and the prolific birdlife.

BIRDLINGS FLAT TO LITTLE RIVER

Distance: 9.7KM Difficulty: EASY

This section traverses along the old railway

embankment until it gets closer to the Little

River township. In places where the old

railway ballast is loose, a new surface of

compacted gravel was installed. The railtrail

ends a few hundred meters from the Little

River.

PERFECT POSTURE

Pilates attracts everyone from

grandmas to to corporates with its

promise of of strength and lean muscle tone.

If you If you haven’t seen a a reformer pilates

machine before, you’d be be forgiven for thinking

it it looks like like some torture apparutus. Don’t be

daunted, mat mat classes are are the the perfect place to

start start your your pilates experience.

One One of of the the key key benefits of of pilates is is

increasing body awareness and balance,

maintaining or or improving posture and

strength. Pilates exercises are are incredibly

adaptable with with the the ability to to modify around

existing injuries or or to to keep people with

specific medical issues as as safe as as possible.

If you If you have have been less less than regular with

your your excercise routine, Abbey, an an ex ex dancer

and and owner of of Movementor Pilates says that

hopefully by beginning to move again you’ll

release some muscle tension and improve

your connective tissue elasticity and function.

She always looks for comfortable ranges of

movement and uses small props and a range

of Pilates tools to support or encourage good

movement.

Abbey says that the best first step is to

organise a one-to-one private assessment or

introductory session. At Movementor Pilates

they use this session to gain information

about you, your medical and fitness history

and your goals. They assess your posture and

movements and teach you the Pilates

foundation principles at your pace, before

advising on what the next step will be. We

use the reformers and other Pilates Studio

equipment in either small circuit type groups

or private sessions. Our mat classes cater for

all ages and body types but it is important to

choose the correct level for you.

GROMBRE

A lot of of the 2017 hair styles are are extensions

of of already existing trends. There’s an an updated

and gutsier version of of balayage, new new types of of

metallics and specific shades of of natural hair hair

colours. But it’s it’s the the word ‘grey’ that that is is

suddenly on on everyone’s lips. lips. Ombre hair hair on on

the otherhand, where gradual blending of of

one hair colour to to another has has been popular

for a a while. So So it it really was was only a a matter of of

time until the two combined to to create the the

ultimate super trend.

Not one to to hop on on a a bandwagon? Thought

balayage and ombre were terms just just for for

teenagers? Grey ombre might just just make you you

reconsider. With roots being kept natural

for a a low-maintenance appeal it it means more

time in in between appointments!

Grey Grey hair hair has has been been

a trend a trend for for a while a while now now

but but Grombre (Grey (Grey

Ombre) is the is the latest latest

varient that’s that’s worth worth

investigating.

SPENDING THE KIDS’

INHERITANCE (S.K.I.)

WORDS FLEUR MCDONALD

Whenever I go out into the community to

talk to people about the need for clients of

all ages to have Wills and Enduring Powers,

we often end up talking about Retirement

Villages or Residential Care. What is it likely

to cost them? What they are entitled to?

What aren’t they entitled to? Often, one of

the most important concerns for our parents

and grandparents generation is how that will

impact on their ability to leave something to

their children or grandchildren?

Our parents and grandparents have worked

hard over their lifetimes so this is a time

where they should be enjoying the fruits of

their labours. However, two World Wars

and the Great Depression has encouraged

them to be careful in their spending and to

save for that “rainy day”. They will often forgo

that new car or that trip overseas for fear of

breaking into savings or investments.

That philosophy can have real implications

for them as the more they keep safe for that

rainy day, the more they may have to pay if

and / or when they need residential care.

The current asset threshold for a Work and

Income Residential Care Subsidy is $219,889

for a single person or for a couple when both

are in care or $120,416 for a couple where

one is still living in the family home.

If the value of their assets, whether the

assets are held jointly or separately, is over

that threshold, our parents and / or

grandparents will be required to pay for their

care. Also they need to be aware that, if their

investments are earning interest, that interest

will also need to go toward paying their care

costs.

Often, there isn’t much we can do. We

may be able to change the way they own

their home or set up a Funeral Trust, but in

the end, if they have assets over the

threshold, they will be expected to use those

assets to pay for any care costs they may have

in the future.

We recommend that your parents and /

or grandparents sit down and get some good

advice in relation to their savings, investments

and the legal structures they currently have in

place. Talking to an Authorised Financial

Advisor and their Legal Advisor will give them

a clearer idea of what they have and what

their options are.

If all else fails, maybe they should give

some serious thought to Spending their Kids

Inheritance.

As with all areas of law, it is important that

you seek good advice from a team who

understand how this area may impact on you.

At Harmans we have experience with all

areas of Seniors Law. Contact Fleur

McDonald on 03 352 2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss your situation.

ARTHRITIS AID AND CIRCULATION BOOSTER

It all started when a worried wife from Kapiti

found a way of relieving her husband’s

severe arthritic pain and stiffness. She

created a device she called an Aircycle.

Arthritis carers were so impressed with the

relief and increased joint mobility this man

experienced they asked for more to be made

available to other sufferers.

Consequently, a cousin of the creator, Jenny

Watson from Lower Hutt started Aircycle

Ltd which has grown to the extent that the

exerciser can now be purchased through

most pharmacies and mobility centres.

Jenny has now retired and sold the business

to Sue Bustard who lives in Kapiti where

Aircycle originated.

Sue says ‘I’m really excited with the

feedback from so many people who have

benefited from this simple invention’. A few

examples follow:

‘My ankles are half the size and I can wear

my shoes again’ Mrs Johnson, Tauranga.

‘I don’t get woken at night with painful

cramps in my legs’. Mike, Oamaru.

‘My hands no longer throb all night’ Sue,

Whangarei.

Used by hospitals, rest homes, diabetes

clinics, podiatrists and physiotherapists, it’s

helpful for the following:

• Arthritis and stiff joints

• Diabetes, Parkinson’s, MS and Stroke

rehabilitation

• Building muscle to prevent falls

• Cramps and restless legs

• Aching hands and feet

• Swollen ankles

• Deep vein thrombosis

Simple and inexpensive, it aids joints and

muscles to move gently while sitting having

coffee, reading, watching TV, working at a

desk or travelling by car or plane.

7 I HOME

perfectly staged

When our Real Estate agent strongly

advised that we enlist a team of stylists to

help ‘dress’ our property, I immediatly thought

that this was just another unjustfied expense.

Why on earth can’t a potential buyer imagine

a new property with their furniture in it?

Surely putting lemons in an expensive bowl

on the bench, karate chopped cushions and

an artfully strewn rug on the sofa couldn’t

mean someone would be swayed in to

spending more. While I never discounted the

fact that stylists are extremely good at their

job, curating furniture pieces to fit together

into a seemly perfect setting, free of everyday

clutter, it was the thought of this ‘property

staging’ as being necessary now for the

purpose of fuelling a buyers imagination that

urked me.

To get to the bottom of this realitively new

business Jasmine and Rebeka from In House

Style took on my questions and I have to

admit that I’ve done a complete 180 in my

thinking. The way I now look at ‘dressing’ your

home for sale is: why wouldn’t you spend a

small amount more on property staging if

there’s even the smallest chance that it might

sway the opinoins of those who hold the

purse strings? If it might mean the difference

between a quick sale for a higher dollar then

you’d be mad not to take a punt and call in a

styling specialist.

Here’s what Jasmine and Rebeka had to say...

What would you say to people that

think they don’t need professional

advice and can’t see the expense as

being justified?

IN HOUSE STYLE: We see property styling

as one of the most important investments

you can make when selling your property.

Property Styling enables buyers to

emotionally connect with a property plus its

inspires them with how their own furniture

could work there. It also shows your

property off at it’s absolute best. Property

Styling will often result in a quicker sale at a

higher price.

Do you prefer to work with a blank

canvases/empty home or can you

provide an add-on package to include

existing furniture?

IN HOUSE STYLE: We do prefer to

completely style an empty property as we can

achieve an overall cohesive look. We do offer

a partial styling service, where we can

potentially use some existing pieces which

will work with the look we are trying to

achieve.

Do you change your staging to suit

the potential buyer in-mind or do you

stick to a tried and tested look?

IN HOUSE STYLE: As each property is

completely individual, we will always style it

with a look that works for that specific space.

We do understand what generally works and

appeals to the majority of potential buyers

but at the same time we don’t use a “cookie

cutter” package for every house. We have a

varied range of different styles of furniture to

complement different types of properties,

from character homes to contemporary new

builds.

Where do you source your staging

products? Are the pieces available to be

bought?

IN HOUSE STYLE: We have a range of

suppliers, both locally and overseas where we

source the majority of our pieces. If someone

is interested in specific pieces we are always

happy to source these for them.

What’s your background? How did

you get in to the property staging

business?

IN HOUSE STYLE: We come from a

background of Real Estate and Interiors. Two

years ago we saw a gap in the market and the

opportunity to create a property styling

business that Christchurch hadn’t had

previously. We focus heavily on detail and use

beautiful unique pieces which are individual to

us and our brand.

TUCK IN TO A FOOD

TRUCK

Food trucks have dominated the

foodie scene for a while now and

the trend is still on the rise.

BUTTERNUT SATAY SOUP

CUISINE I 8

Serves

4-6

The mobile food vendor you’d typically find

at the local show has now morphed in to a

the very respectable gourmet truck, but the

allure is still the same. Rather than being

limited to deep-fried options you’ll now find

an array of foods to suit even the most

dicerning palatte.

Trucks are the perfect way to get lip

smacking food at under half the price you’d

pay in a restaurant. We’ve rounded up a few

of our favourite Christchurch trucks.

PEDROS HOUSE OF LAMB

14b Papanui Rd

Open daily: 4.00pm-8pm

For truely melt in your mouth meat, Pedro’s

is the only place to go. Order a full lamb

shoulder cooked with plenty of garlic and

rosmary and amazingly flavoursome scalloped

potatos.

TIKI TACO

ReSTART Mall

Open daily: 9.00am-5.30pm

Tiki Taco is Kiwi/Mexican fusion at it’s best.

What sets them apart is that their white

flour tortillas are freshly pressed and cooked

from homemade dough. Their sensational

fire-roasted sauce is made fresh from an old

South Mexican recipe.

DOROTHY’S POP UP TEAROOMS

Check outwhere Dorothy’s will pop up next!

https://www.facebook.com/teawithdorothy/

Serving quality high teas (and coffees) with

homemade English fare including lovely little

sandwiches that my Aunt Nora used to say

she could blow through, scones with jam and

cream, and an arrangement of fancy cakes

FRITZ’S WIENERS

ReSTART Mall

Open daily: 9.00am-5.30pm

* Ricarton Market on Saturdays

The highest quality, mouth watering, smoked

bratwurst in a freshly baked baguette bun,

garnished with onions or sauerkraut and

topped with your favourite mustard, it’s easy

to see why millions of customers agree that

Fritz’s Wieners are the best thing since

someone thought of putting a bratwurst in a

bun!

THE VAGABOND CHEFS

Keep a watch on their website to see where

they’ll be! http://www.thevagabondchefs.co.nz

Serving top notch street food, the

Vagabonds’ mantra is ‘fun, fast, and friggin

delish’.

Morgan and Andy are the chefs, who are

serious about flavour and avoiding

seriousness. Their location and menu changes

daily and literally every dish packs an

impressive punch.

INGREDIENTS:

2 onions, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

1 teaspoon of ground coriander

1 teaspoon of curry powder

A good pinch of chilli flakes

1 1/2 tablespoons of tomato paste

This soup is jazzed

up with some spices

and chilli , as well as a

secret ingredient -

peanut butter! which

gives the soup a subtle

satay flavour that is

really delicious.

1.3 -1.4 kilos (skin off) butternut, chopped into 3cm chunks (I have also used pumpkin)

5 cups of chicken stock

4 – 5 tablespoons of peanut butter

1 – 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

To serve: chopped coriander, chopped red chilli, plain unsweetened yoghurt (all optional)

METHOD:

Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium heat. Cook onions and garlic for 5 minutes until

onion is soft. Add spices and chilli flakes and fry for a few minutes, then add tomato paste and

fry for a further minute. Add a little water at any time if onions or spices are sticking. Add

butternut and chicken stock. Bring to the boil, lower heat and cook until butternut is soft, about

15 minutes.

Transfer to a food processor (or blender) along with peanut butter. Blend until smooth.

Season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper. (If you have used stock made from stock

powder the soup may not need salt).

Divide soup between bowls and garnish with a dollop of yoghurt if using, and chopped

coriander and chilli if using.

Soil – It’s so Important

I admit, I have cringe worth moments

when in I’m in box stores and I see

shoppers purchasing cheap soil.

People invest precious time, effort and

resources when planting a great flower,

veggie or ornamental garden, but really

before you plant anything the most

important investment should start

with the soil.

The soil is what helps to give any plant

it’s vigour, nutrients and water

requirements for life. Please take my

advice and purchase the best soil you can

afford, your plants will thank you for it

with more flowers, faster growth and

a bountiful harvest.

What soils to use when?

• Compost – By using compost, you

improve the soil structure, texture

and aeration and increase the soil’s

water-holding capacity. The organic

matter in compost provides food for

microorganisms, keeping the soil in

a healthy, balanced condition. Ideal for

veggie gardens, incorporated with other

soil medias when planting new plants

or to top up the garden.

• Potting & Basket Mix – As we use

ourselves for houseplant and perennial

production this is a high-quality mix

suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

It is important to take care of

Hayden Foulds has some tips for the rosarians among us

CHALLENGE: A tea rose with pink petals, there are things you

can do at this time of year to ensure full colour next time they

bloom.

AUTUMN IS probably the worst

season for rose lovers.

The excitement of the first flush

of blooms is a distant memory

yet it is still too early to think

about winter pruning.

A combination of neglect

over the holiday season and the

weather takes its toll, and often

roses are looking worse for wear

as we enter autumn.

Certainly this season has been

challenging for rose growers

around the country with lots

of wind and rain and cooler

temperatures than normal pretty

much summing up the season.

There are a few things you can

do in autumn to get the best out

of your roses and also prepare for

winter time.

DEADHEADING

Continue to deadhead spent

blooms until the end of March

then leave so colourful hips can

form.

If petals blowing around the

garden bothers you, these can be

removed leaving the base of the

flower to form the hip. Hips are

often overlooked in rose growing

but provide colour and interest

at a time when there is little else

happening in the garden.

If you have summer trimmed

(usually done late January to

early February), then continue to

maintain moisture levels to keep

the plants growing.

Your reward will be a beautiful

display of blooms in March and

April. The autumn blooms tend

to be smaller than those in spring

but have more intense colouring

and better substance.

Summer trimming – for those

who don’t know – is when all

blooms and buds are removed

from the plant, an application

of fertiliser is provided and the

plants are provided with sufficient

water in order to get them

growing again.

The water and fertiliser

are crucial as without them,

growth will be stunted. Summer

trimming is also a great way to

try to get roses into bloom for

a certain date although it is a

bit of a lottery with moisture,

temperature and nutrition all

playing their part.

ASSESSING PERFORMANCE

Autumn is a great time to

assess the performance of rose

varieties in your garden.

If the plant is in its first season,

don’t be too hasty to discard

– often plants need a year to

properly settle in anyway.

This is especially so for

climbing roses, which often don’t

start producing the long growths

characteristic of them until the

second year.

Sometimes moving a rose can

give it a new lease of life. May is

a good month to move roses as

usually there is plenty of moisture

about.

If you are wishing to plant

a rose back where you have

about a wheelbarrow full of

soil and swap with that from

another part of the garden and

incorporate some compost as

your roses during autumn

Be careful to avoid areas that

have grown potatoes, dahlias or

tomatoes as verticillium wilt can

be a problem.

If you are looking to plant

some new roses, now is the time

to order from garden centres

and specialist nurseries, either

by mail order or online.

The new and popular varieties,

along with those varieties grown

on a standard, often sell out the

quickest.

Look around public rose

gardens in your area to ee which

varieties are performing well in

your area.

PREPARING NEW AREAS

The autumn months are a great

time for preparing new areas

for roses. Dig over the area you

are wanting to plant and fork

in some compost or well-rotted

animal manure. Add some

lime or dolomite lime and a

sprinkling of blood and bone

and incorporate into the soil. Do

not add any other fertiliser.

Autumn is also a good time to

check your soil pH, especially

if your roses don’t seem to be

doing as well as they should. The

scale measures the acidity of the

soil and ranges from 1: acidic, to

14: alkaline. Roses require a pH

of between 6 and 6.9, with 6.5

being the optimum level. If the

pH is higher or lower than this,

nutrients in the soil are ‘locked

up’ and cannot be used by the

plant. If your roses are not

thriving, then consider getting

a soil test done to determine

the pH of your garden and

from that, corrective action can

be taken to get the pH within

range.

CLEAN UP

April and May are good months

to have a good tidy up around

your roses. Hygiene is important

to prevent diseases, such as

black spot and rust, from

overwintering and infecting

new growth in the spring, so all

fallen leaves and debris needs

to be picked up and disposed of

in the rubbish. Don’t add to the

compost. It can be a bit timeconsuming,

but is well worth it.

An old pair

“of kitchen tongs is great for

reaching difficult spots and also

keeping your hands away from

the thorns.

You can continue to spray your

roses for pests and diseases if

you wish. Black spot has been

more prevalent with the wetter

summer weather this year, but

other diseases such as rust and

powdery mildew are also about,

along with insect pests like

aphids.

deadhead spent

blooms until the

Chippendale – Sydney suburb reborn

.kiwi

• By Mike Yardley

SHRUGGING OFF decades

of grime, crime and decay, the

once-dodgy little district of

Chippendale, is a village reborn

in Sydney.

Walk south from the Central

Railway Station down the wide

expanse of Broadway, flanked by

faded glories like the old Grace

Bros Department Store, a Queen

Anne-style bastion, crowned with

copper domes.

Feeling a fizz of anticipation,

soon shuffling into view was the

road sign “Kensington St” and the

sturdy curves of The Old Clare

Hotel. What is now one of the

city’s trending boutique design

hotels sprung from the loins of

the grimy old administration

building for Carlton & United

Brewery.

The industrial heritage-listed

site also houses the fiendishly

popular Kensington Street Social,

where the chilled out menu is all

about Mediterranean share plates,

showcasing the best of Aussie

produce and wine.

Save some room for a sweet

treat and pop into another Kensington

St haunt, Koi,

where Reynold Poernomo of

IN VOGUE: The former Carlton & United Brewery administration building is now a bustling

boutique hotel and home to the Kensington Street Social. (Right) – Spice Alley serving streetfood

cheap eats.

MasterChef fame, will exhilarate

you with his wondrous dessert

bar fare.

The real show-stopper though,

is Spice Alley, which has grown

from strength to strength in the

past couple of years. The brainchild

was Singaporean chef, Alex

Lee who envisaged the potential

of developing Sydney’s first outdoor

Singaporean-style hawker

centre, serving street-food cheap

eats.

Chippendale is also stamping

its mark on Sydney’s cultural

landscape. Over two dozen galleries,

from the imposing to the

pocket-sized can be found in the

precinct. My favourite would

have to be Judith Neilson’s White

Rabbit Gallery which houses the

world’s largest collection of contemporary

Chinese art, outside

China.

This billion-dollar wonderland

of colossal sculptures and

political pop art is electrifying

and unmissable. Other fun stops

include aMBUSH and Galerie

Pompom.

In spite of the gritty bohemian

beat to Chippendale, there’s also

an unmistakable dose of the shiny

and new. The Central Park development

is where necks swivel and

jaws-drop.

Flanked by gardens and kinetic

sculptures, One Central Park is

a futuristic 30-storey skyscraper

and a symbol of sustainability

with a cantilvered heliostat, dispersing

natural sunlight. It’s also

the world’s tallest vertical garden,

clad in over 35,000 plants. That’s

big brag factor.

If you’re wandering back to

the CBD, take a walk along the

Goods Line, reminiscent of New

York’s High Line.

This shared walking and cycling

path runs from Chippendale all

the way to Darling Harbour, on a

partly elevated decommissioned

railway line.

Rise in

running

red lights

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in

2014.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.

Benji Marshall helping Broncos on and off the field

A SURPRISE Brisbane debut

has only made Benji Marshall

hungry for more NRL action.

But the veteran playmaker

believes some of his best work

may be done off the field, helping

Ben Hunt block the “outside

noise” after his lucrative Dragons

deal.

Marshall was a shock lastminute

Broncos bench addition

in last round’s 14-12 loss at

Melbourne after Tavita Pangai Jr

(ankle) withdrew.

Marshall only played 10

minutes – at lock – off the bench,

but it was enough to make the

former Kiwis captain want more.

“It was great to get a run,”

the 32-year-old said. “If Wayne

[Bennett] wants me to keep

playing as a utility, so be it.”

Marshall believes he can also

make an impact on the sidelines

as a mentor after witnessing

the reaction to Hunt’s lucrative

Dragons move.

The ex-Dragons half said

Hunt has been under enormous

scrutiny since signing a five-year

St George Illawarra contract

from 2018, which will make the

Brisbane No 7 one of the game’s

highest-paid players.

He bristled at speculation that

Hunt may become distracted by

the deal and not be committed to

the Broncos in 2017.

“If you see the little efforts

he does that other halves aren’t

doing, putting his body on the

line for the team, that’s not a guy

who is worrying about what is

happening next year,” Marshall

said.

“From a players’ point of view,

we have faith in Ben that he is

with us.”

Marshall, on a one-year deal

with the Broncos, said he hoped

to bring the best out of Hunt

and halves partner Anthony

Milford, who have not clicked

since Brisbane’s run to the 2015

grand final.

While Hunt admitted his

halves pairing with Milford

was a “bit off”, he backed

them to step up in future clutch

plays.

Hunt says he would have a

target on his back, no matter

what he did this season, after the

Dragons deal.

“Probably,” he said. “There are

definitely people out there who

are going to keep an eye on it

more than others, but I just care

what my coach and team-mates

think.”

Ice skater’s world championship preparation not ideal

• By Gordon Findlater

A LACK of ice in Christchurch

has made preparing for an ice

hockey world championship

challenging to say the least.

Chris Eaden is the only

Christchurch-based player in the

New Zealand Ice Blacks team

to compete in the IIHF division

2 Group B Ice Hockey World

Championship in Auckland next

month.

Eaden, 26, played his last

competitive match more than

six months ago when the Canterbury

Red Devils went down

to the Southern Stampede in the

New Zealand Ice Hockey League

finals series.

Canterbury began pre-season

training last week, but it’s a far

cry from the ideal preparation

for an improved effort in the cup

race after finishing nine seconds

off the pace at the South Island

championships.

Volleyball

Burnside High School’s senior

girls’ team have a chance to win

their third straight national title

in Palmerston North. The team

went unbeaten at both the South

Island and Canterbury championships

this month, not even

dropping a set.

The squad’s two under-18 New

Zealand players, Libby Collett

and Chloe Mikaera, returned

home from China last week

after playing in the under-18

Asian championships under the

guidance of Burnside coach Sam

Ryburn. “Were tracking okay,

but it’s a very tough competition.

There’s about eight school that

can take it out so I’m expecting it

“I haven’t played since August,

Ryburn.

On the boys’ side, Shirley Boys’

High School will go in as the top

Canterbury seed after winning

the Canterbury champs at the

weekend.

chance to win another national

mixed title in Auckland. They

looked untroubled at the South

Island championships in Timaru

this month and won the 2016

New Zealand championships

by not dropping a set against

Auckand’s St Kentigern College

in the final.

In the boys’ competition,

Eaden trains regularly with the

Canterbury team. However, during

the off-season, paying $380 a

hour to hire ice can be a stretch

for training individually.

It hasn’t stopped him from

staying in shape. Unlike the ice,

the gym is easily accessible. He

operates the Eaden Project, his

own gym on Wordsworth St.

“At the moment, everything is

done in the gym.”

The Canterbury forward has

represented New Zealand on

a number of occasions. He has

been to a trio of age-group world

championships. He was the top

point-scorer of all nations at the

under-20 division 3 World Junior

Championships in 2008.

He has also been to three

Christ’s will carry local hopes

leading the charge. They have a

Cricket

St Bede’s College will fly the

flag for Canterbury at the junior

secondary school boys’ tournament

in Palmerston North.

They qualified for the year 9

and 10 tournament by defeating

Christchurch Boys in the

regional qualifying final. Year

10 student, Matt Boyle, who

also plays for the school’s first

XI, could be key to success. He

won the year 9 batting award at

the Christchurch metro cricket

youth awards after scoring 613

runs at an average of 153 in his

first year at school.

to the cost of representing New

Zealand.

Ice hockey is a pay-to-play

sport in New Zealand, meaning

players have to fund themselves

to travel to world championships.

With this year’s champs in

Auckland, Eaden believes the Ice

Blacks have their best team to

date, due to costs being less of an

issue for players.

“It’s about $3000 this year,

where as it’s normally more than

double that,” said Eaden.

Eaden flew to Melbourne with

the Ice Blacks on Tuesday.

They will play four warmup

Highlanders ‘desperate’ for win against Brumbies

• By Steve Hepburn

THERE IS zero chance the

Highlanders are going to relax

now their derby run is over.

The Highlanders travelled to

Canberra today to take on the

Brumbies on Saturday night.

After playing the other four

New Zealand sides in the first

four rounds, the Highlanders

finally get to play an overseas

side.

Why not put me

to the test

As I do stand out

from the rest

If you’re ready to

sell then so am I

So go ahead give

me a try!!!

In fact, of their next nine

games, only one – the Blues at

Forsyth Barr Stadium on April 8

– is against a New Zealand team.

So the stage is set for the side

to get back on track and put

together a run of wins. But it is

not going to just happen.

Highlanders assistant coach

Mark Hammett said the side was

mindful of a Brumbies outfit

coming off an impressive 28-12

dismantling of the Waratahs in

Four Seasons Realty

Sydney.

‘’We’ve had a really good

look at the Brumbies and they

are a South African-style team

with x-factor as well. We are

pretty desperate. We’re not

underestimating them at all,’’

Hammett said.

‘’We have had close games

against them. They’re a great

side who had a good win in the

weekend.’’

is a sniff of desperation within

the southern franchise.

The side won only one of its

opening four games, beating

the Blues in Auckland while

losing at home to the Chiefs and

Crusaders and falling 41-15 last

Saturday to the Hurricanes in

Wellington.

Hammett said the team had to

move on from those games and

learn from them.

‘’Every game, we prepare to

win the game. We don’t go and

think it would be nice to win two

out of four or three out of four.

Of course, we want to win all of

them. There is no doubt in the

wash-up points are important

and so are bonus points.”

Malakai Fekitoa and Fletcher

Smith, who both left the field

after head knocks on Saturday,

are expected to be fit for the

match on Saturday night.

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.

Tackle off-road tracks

in a Land Cruiser 70

• By Ross Kiddie

EARNING an Australasian

New Car Assessment

Program five-star safety

rating for the Land Cruiser

70 has been a breakthrough

for the Toyota Motor Co.

It means the company

now has the full support of

the enterprises which, in

the majority, are the major

purchasers of the robust

off-roader. Globally, the

Land Cruiser 70 has been

an important part of the

mining, manufacturing

and agricultural industries,

along with recreational

users who want its go-anywhere

ability.

The ANCAP safety qualification

criteria is comprehensive,

and for the Cruiser

70 to reach five stars is a

worthy achievement, albeit

at this stage only the singlecab

variant meets the criteria,

but it’s only a matter of

time before the double-cab

variant is engineered to

reach that level.

And I’m pleased to report

that the Cruiser 70 hasn’t

lost any of the fundamentals

which have earned it a rugged

and tough reputation

over the years. At the media

launch for the new series,

motoring journalists were

treated to an off-road experience

which highlighted

how well the Cruiser 70

adapts itself to conditions

where access to wheeled

transport is marginal.

Part of the reason why

the Cruiser 70 reaches its

new status is through the

electronic traction devices

which have been engineered

into the vehicle,

when you combine those

with the drive variations

through the four-wheeldrive

transfer system, the

result is a vehicle which

has grip and drive almost

unsurpassed.

The driveline can be

adapted to glean traction

on all surfaces, most

through the dual range

transfer case and differential

locking systems, the

rest by manipulating the

traction control network

to best suit the impending

surface.

The new model for 2017

hasn’t changed a lot in

appearance, there are a few

cosmetic changes here and

there, but by and large, it

still resembles the classic,

unmistakable 70-series

look.

It also has much the same

engine and transmission,

the 4.5-litre diesel-fed V8

drives through a five-speed

TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 70: Rugged reputation.

manual gearbox. Toyota

rates the quad-camshaft,

turbocharged unit at

151kW with 430Nm of

torque, both outputs realised

low in the rev band

at 3400rpm and 1200-

3200rpm respectively.

• Price – Toyota Land

Cruiser 70 LT, $75,780

• Dimensions – Length,

5220mm; width,

1790mm; height,

1970mm

• Configuration – V8,

four-wheel-drive,

4461cc, 151kW,

430Nm, five-speed

manual.

• Fuel usage –

10.6l/100km

Because of its low revving

nature, the engine

hauls in acceleration and

impetus from as low as

500rpm. And that is the

beauty of the engine/transmission

combination, it is

designed for hauling and

chugging away at terrain

where slow speed is most

beneficial.

The gearshift is free in

its movement and clutch

action disguises well the

comprehensive mechanicals

which lie beneath, and

the power with which it

needs to harness, the pedal

is light and progressive.

On the highway it delivers

a ride well distant to

what its load-bearing suspension

would suggest. The

ride is compliant, disguising

well the use of front

and rear live axles.

Chunky all-terrain

Dunlop tyres (225/95 x

16in) are designed to provide

grip in the loose, but

they also do an adequate

job on the highway; motion

is quiet, and while the

steering is slow and unresponsive

in a corner, if you

drive the Cruiser 70 with

respect it won’t deliver any

surprises.

As part of the new

upgrade, Toyota’s engineers

have widened the

front track considerably, so

much so that it looks a little

ungainly against a narrow

rear track, but the result is

greater stability in a corner

and traction benefits offroad.

However, the Cruiser 70

is all about a working role

and it makes no excuses for

its utilitarian appearance

and sparse level of fitment,

there are just the fundamental

in-cabin features

such as air conditioning

and audio. A reversing

camera is standard, part of

the ANCAP requirement,

but other than that the

owner or every day driver

had better get used to

adjusting the rear view mirrors

and winding the windows

manually, and there

isn’t even central locking.

However, these features are

available on a higher grade

model although that adds

an extra $6200 to the price

tag.

That aside, the LT

Cruiser 70 represents good

value at $75,780 in singlecab

form. The double-cab

lists at $79,380, while a

station wagon variant with

massive rear load space sits

at $84,980.

The test car was a singlecab

model and its deck area

was huge, long and wide.

Although its depth wasn’t

great, it served useful

purpose when my wife left

me a note to read – please

trim the trees at the front

of the property. That I did,

and the Cruiser 70 easily

accepted long branches and

a wealth of foliage.

Whereas Hilux from the

Toyota stable will serve

most recreational, farming

and business operators

well, the Cruiser 70 is there

for the buyer who needs

that extra ground clearance,

greater towing ability,

and the means to go just

that little bit deeper into

unknown off-road tracks.

& Property

Get smart with your money

to achieve your dream home

without compromising on

what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot

of land with friends or family

which you can split into smaller

lots. Many great locations tend

to cover more ground, so get

the stunning harbour view you

dream of by sharing the cost

with someone you don’t mind

having as a neighbour.

Opting for low-maintenance

building materials, like vinyl

siding and metal roofing saves

in the long run. Although they

may be more expensive to

install you will save money on

future repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on

structural elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together with your

architect or builder, determine other areas you

could save on to allow for a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash on

overbuilding. Look carefully at the existing

properties in the area and be aware that building a

home that is bigger and better than those of your

BUILDING ON A BUDGET

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

LIFE IS MEANT TO

BE THIS EASY

Step inside this recently completed new

build (late ’15) for the ideal kiwi living.

You will find a beautiful 3 bedroom,

2 bathroom home with stylish open plan

living, kitchen & dining area complimented

with ranchsliders to a large deck &

garden. Master suite contains walk in

robe, complete with adjoining ensuite with

ranchsliders to deck. LED lighting,

2 heatpumps, low maintenance garden.

574sqm land area, 164sqm floor area.

neighbours will not necessarily

equate to a fair price if and

when it’s time to sell. instead,

the value of your build will be

determined by the lower-priced

homes around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any building

project. Not only will you have

recourse should anything go

wrong, but their experience

in the industry means

they will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built to

ensure you are getting what

you asked for and what you

paid for. if you had initially

agreed on using a specific

brand, for example, then don’t

settle for less, unless you

discuss a cost adjustment with

your builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed out of

control in the financial department due to changes

being made to the design and materials once

building is already underway. Deciding exactly

what you want and then sticking with it will

ensure you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.
