Mental

health

unit

problems

escalate

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CANTERBURY mental health

staff have “formally escalated”

problems in a high-needs mental

health unit, which has reached

crisis-level.

They met recently with the

Ministry of Health to discuss

potential solutions to ongoing

problems with violence and

overcrowding in the Assessment

Treatment and Rehabilitation

Unit.

Between January 2014 and

October 2016 there were about

1000 physical assaults recorded

at the unit based at Hillmorton

Hospital. People receiving

compulsory care or with “severe

behavioural disturbance” are

treated at the unit.

Specialist mental health

services general manager Toni

Gutschlag told The Star the

meeting had been held to discuss

challenges at the unit, and to

“seek information about capacity

across the country.”

“How can we better utilise existing

services nationally across

the country to appropriately

match with individual client

needs,” she said.

She said the Ministry of Health

had been asked to help with

management of “the complex

needs of those being supported.”

At a recent meeting with health

board members she said the

situation was becoming volatile,

as full wards made it difficult to

separate violent patients from

one another.

ANYONE WHO has ever

had to sit in hospital next to

a gravely ill child, knows that

leaving their bed side is an

impossibility.

The nights are especially

tough and if you do manage to

catch a few winks of sleep, the

chairs are not especially comfortable.

Mum Joanna Triplow found

this out when her son, only

weeks old, spent time in the paediatric

high dependency unit.

Since then she has been on a

three-year crusade to get more

comfortable furniture and has

made progress, read more over

on page 7.

We received a lot of feedback

regarding the RSA’s bid to

move the Citizens’ War Memorial

away from the crumbling

shadow of the Christ Church

Cathedral. People expressed

their absolute outrage on our

Rise Up Facebook page (page

13) but also wondered whether

it could be too broken to fix. We

have some positive news from

Mayor Lianne Dalziel on page 7

regarding this issue.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw coal from the Malvern Hills

going on sale in Christchurch at £5 10s a ton on April 25,

1854. On the same day in 1864, the Canterbury Horticultural

and Acclimatisation Society was formed. This group

introduced many animals, birds and fish to Canterbury,

and helped to establish the Government Gardens, which

eventually became the Botanic Gardens. In 1977 the

Bridge of Remembrance became a pedestrian precinct. On

April 28 and 29, 1983, the Prince and Princess of Wales

visited the city. On April 29, 1925, Reverend J Archer

became New Zealand’s first Labour mayor. On the same

day in 1974, David Caygill, 25, became the city’s youngest

ever acting mayor (for five days). On April 30, 1971, 6000

protesters (right) marched against the war in Vietnam.

LEAF NUISANCE

Although autumn makes the

city’s trees look pretty, it can be

a nuisance for contractors. The

leaves require hours of raking

and street cleaning, making

sure they don’t block kerbs

so it is easy to park, and work

to keep sumps and channels

clear – particularly now with

the recent rain. City council

contractors will be out checking

tree-lined streets over the season,

particularly streets that are

normally problematic.

Lyttelton artist

to immortalise

McCaw

• By Noah Graham

MARK WHYTE has restored Gothic

buildings, sculpted war heroes and

created a bronze sled dog – now he will

add an All Black captain to his list.

The Lyttelton sculptor has been

commissioned by the Kurow Museum

Committee to craft a bronze statue of

one of the greatest All Black captains,

Richie McCaw.

Mr Whyte said the statue will be

about 2m tall and will stand in Kurow

– McCaw’s home town.

He is looking forward to meeting

McCaw in the next few months to

realise his character, which will help

him create a clay casing for the statue,

Mr Whyte said.

Mr Whyte’s most notable work in

Canterbury is the statue of double Victoria

Cross recipient Charles Upham at

Amberley.

He said he is used to sculpting war

heroes but it will be a similar process

crafting the McCaw statue and the

challenge will come from making it as

accurate as possible.

“I’m meticulous. I do my utmost to

get the true character of a person.”

Mr Whyte said he did not

want to create a sculpture that

would reflect anything other

than a real portrayal of McCaw.

•From page 1

Recently, $6600 in modifications

were made in an attempt to

make the unit safer. On a 24-hour

shift there are five staff on evening

shifts, and two overnight.

A Ministry of Health spokeswoman

said those involved in

the meeting would not answer

questions from The Star about

options being considered, as

they felt that would be “inappropriate”

before decisions had

been made.

Minister of Health Jonathan

Coleman also did not answer

questions from The Star. A

spokeswoman for him said

he would not be commenting

because it was an “operational

matter.”

Labour health spokesman David

Clark said the Government

was trying to put “a band-aid on

a gaping wound.”

The Government has refused

to adequately fund mental

health in Christchurch in spite

of evidence of demand,” he said.

The CDHB was given an extra

$44 million in funding last year,

but told the Ministry of Health

that was not enough to cover the

extra demand for services since

the earthquakes.

Funding specifically for

Mental health unit problems escalate

mental health services in

Canterbury dropped last

year to $222 per person,

significantly below the $243

national average.

The number of Canterbury

children or youth accessing

mental health services has

grown 55 per cent over the past

three years, and this year rose

from 626 in January to 714 in

February.

In Brief

COSTS FOR HAGLEY OVAL

Upgrading Hagley Oval for the

upcoming cricket season will

cost about $1.5 million. The

city council has already spent

$808,000 on the oval. That

included $465,000 on sight

screens, $30,000 on cable trays,

$125,000 on temporary steps

on the embankment, $40,000

on shade sails, $105,000 for a

protected roadway, $25,000 on

bollards, and $18,000 for storage

of the steps and sight screens.

Work to reshape the embankment

will be done over winter, costing

$600,000. On top of that, the city

council is also proposing to install

camera tower foundations to the

price of $100,000.

BOIL WATER WARNING

People in Governors Bay are told

to keep boiling their water at least

for the rest of the week. The city

council has issued a reminder that

water needs to be treated after last

Thursday’s routine testing came

back showing traces of E.Coli.

The effected reservoir has

been treated with chlorine and

chlorinated water has also

been flushed through the pipe

network.

CAR PARK FOR RESERVE

Burwood’s Horseshoe Lake

Reserve will get a new 28-space

car park – but it is likely to lose

its footbridge. The city council is

asking for feedback on a plan to

replace the original earthquakedamaged

seven space car park

with a larger one. There is room

for more car parks at a later

date. It also wants to remove the

footbridge, and replace it with a

rockery.

ELECTRIC CAR CONVOY

Christchurch has broken the

New Zealand record for having

the most electric vehicles at one

place. As part of the Leading the

Charge Bluff to Cape Reinga road

trip, 103 electric vehicles gathered

at Canterbury University on

Saturday. That passed the previous

record of 62, set by Whangarei on

Easter Saturday.

Health board

boss also has

parking trouble

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AS HE faces criticism for parking

problems around Christchurch

Hospital, health board chief

executive David Meates has revealed

he faces the same parking woes as

his staff.

He has refused an assigned car

park, choosing instead to pay for

parking in the parking building

used by Canterbury District Health

Board staff. That was because he

didn’t want to create a doublestandard,

he said.

“I choose not to have a dedicated

car park, in spite of being chief executive

of the 10th or 11th largest

organisation in the country,” he said.

He also drives his own car, not a

CDHB vehicle. He was responding

to an accusation he would see the

parking situation differently if he, or

his family, faced the same struggles.

But Mr Meates said one of his

daughters worked for the CDHB last

year, and was not given any special

treatment.

Health board members also do

not have any dedicated car parks,

and sometimes have to park blocks

away when attending meetings at

the CDHB boardroom on Oxford

Tce.

Quake memorial confusion cleared up

• By Bridget Rutherford

SIGNAGE WILL be installed to

point people to the Canterbury

Earthquake National Memorial,

and explain what the pounamu

there represents.

It comes after tourists were

confused as to what the pounamu

meant and where the memorial,

which commemorates

those killed and injured in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

was located.

The signage will go on

the city council’s various

Wayfinding Towers, and on the

stainless steel stands in Cashel

Mall.

The central city’s signage

plinths would also be updated

to include information to help

people find their way to the

memorial.

An Otakaro Ltd spokesman

said a plaque would be installed

near the pounamu greenstone to

explain its meaning as part

of the Avon River Precinct

works.

The text is currently being

finalised,” he said.

The pounamu greenstone

was gifted by Te Runanga o

Makaawhio.

Commuter train funding

plan fails to reach destination

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A Christchurch commuter

train crowdfunding

campaign has failed to

reach its $1.8 million target

– but a private partnership

could still bring the plan

to life.

Organiser Tane Apanui

(right) held meetings

about the plan with several

organisations this month,

including Environment

Canterbury, Ara Institute

of Canterbury and Ngāi

Tahu.

The Dash Rail plan

would use second-hand

passenger trains from

Auckland, and run them

on the existing tracks

between Selwyn, Waimakariri

and the central city.

People had pledged

$86,455 to the campaign

before it closed on Sunday,

but that money will be

refunded because it failed

to reach the target.

But organiser Tane

Apanui said the campaign

had drawn a lot of interest,

and he was hopeful a business

partnership could be

formed to get the plan off

the ground.

“I don’t see it as a failure

at all, because the public

support and interest in this

has been really strong,” he

said.

Ara sustainability manager

Shaun Bowler said no

commitment to the plan

had been made, but he was

open to further meetings

with Mr Apanui about it.

A survey of about 2400

staff and students at Ara

last year found many

wanted better public transport,

he said.

He said more than 1000

staff and 18,000 students

were based at Ara, and the

location of the proposed

station on Moorhouse Ave

would work well for them.

“In principle, we support

anything that gives people

more choice and provides

more sustainable transport

options,” he said.

ECan chairman David

Bedford said it had considered

the viability of a rail

service in Christchurch

several times.

“In short, the cost has

been too great to support

the projected patronage,”

he said.

War memorial meeting

• By Bridget Rutherford

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel is

arranging a meeting to ensure

options to move the Citizens’

War Memorial are developed as

a “matter of priority.”

Christchurch Memorial RSA

wants the cenotaph moved from

Cathedral Square to Cranmer

Square, where

Anzac Day

commemorations

are now

held, in time

for Armistice

Day, 2018.

“I spoke

Lianne Dalziel

to members

of the RSA

yesterday [Anzac Day] and have

undertaken to arrange a meeting

between them, council staff and

Regenerate Christchurch to ensure

that options for the possible

relocation of the cenotaph are

developed as a matter of priority,”

Ms Dalziel told The Star.

“Options would need to spell

out the feasibility of the move,

the cost and who would pay.”

Paul O’Connor, who is spearheading

the relocation project,

said he spoke to Ms Dalziel,

which was encouraging.

“I’m picking from what she

PROGRESS: Mayor Lianne Dalziel is organising a meeting

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

said she’s not going to let it lie.”

The memorial sits on Anglican

Diocese land, but it is the responsibility

of the city council.

It had been fenced off since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

until Tuesday when some exservicemen

were allowed temporary

access to lay a wreath.

Because of its heritage listing,

resource consent would be

needed to move it.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said until they

could access the cenotaph to do

a full invasive investigation, it

was unknown whether it could

be moved.

Ms Dalziel acknowledged its

current location was significant,

because it asserted the cultural

connection between the cenotaph,

Cathedral and the square.

Mother on a crusade

for hospital chairs

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN nine-week-old Jack

Triplow was admitted to the

children’s ward with a virus three

years ago, his mum Joanna did

not leave his side.

He spent seven days in hospital

– five of which were in the

paediatric high dependency unit

– and Mrs Triplow, and husband

Brad, realised the furniture was

uncomfortable and difficult to

move.

She slept on a fold-out bed that

only a nurse could set up, while

other parents in the ward slept

on wooden chairs.

“You just don’t leave your

babies when they’re in HDU.”

Now, she and her friend Renee

Jones are fundraising to buy 12

hospital-standard recliners and

pull-out beds to make families’

stays more comfortable.

It took more than three years

to find furniture that was antibacterial,

reliable, able to be fixed

in Christchurch and on wheels

so it could be moved easily.

They have found two suitable

Alloyfold.

Two recliner chairs – donated

The chairs cost $1500 plus GST.

Having somewhere

comfortable to sit or sleep was

one less thing parents had to

worry about, she said.

Conan Fee

Creating a path

Next year, Canterbury University will open a

completely new School of Product Design. Head of

school Conan Fee spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about

robots, inventions and encouraging creativity

PROGRESS: Both an engineer and a musician himself, Conan Fee is working on a new degree

which combines engineering and the arts.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Tell me about the school you’re

creating?

The idea is that graduates will

be technically literate and can

engineer something feasible, but

also understand how to design

something beautiful for the end

user, and then how to take what

they have created to market.

It will be quite hands-on in

that respect. Once you have

your product and your end user

in mind you can go right into

prototyping, with access to all

kinds of ‘maker spaces’, where

you can create things and try

them. So these students could

go anywhere, working in the

medical field or in education

or creating sports equipment,

anything.

I remember as a student, engineering

and arts students would

constantly mock each other. It

was like they spoke different

languages. How on earth do you

combine the two disciplines?

We didn’t actually set out to do

that. This degree started with a

blank slate. We said what do we

want to produce in a graduate?

Many years ago, when I was

working at University of Waikato,

we had about 5000 management

students at the time. I

remember thinking they were

probably going to end up just

selling each other cellphones. The

question is, who is creating the

product for them to manage?

I could also see a whole group

of talented students at high

school who don’t have the depth

in things like maths or chemistry

that they would need to be engineers,

but who have enormous

creativity. Creativity seems to be

something that is encouraged

in pre-school, but seems to be

lost or trained out of us as we get

older. This is helping to create

a pathway for people with that

creativity.

And the other side of it is the

entrepreneurs who have created

successful products and businesses,

but have had to do it by

the seat of their pants.

OUR ESTUARY

NEEDS YOUR HELP!

We need your comments on the future of the estuary!

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a not for profit

organisation formed by the community to coordinate management

of the estuary. The Trust has developed a draft Ecological

Management Plan for the estuary. But are we on the right track?

Come and have your say. Trust Board members will present the

for future entrepreneurs to follow

Can you tell me about your

own background?

I was born and raised in

Christchurch. The fork in the

road for my career was when I

was a student trying to decide

whether I wanted to become a

musician or an engineer. I chose

engineering, because it seemed a

more secure career path. I did my

training in chemical engineering

and followed the academic path

to become Dean of Engineering,

but I moulded it to my interests

a lot.

So did you keep playing

music?

Not as much as I’d have liked

to. I probably spent too much

time practising piano when I

should have been practising

engineering, and too much time

engineering when I should have

been playing piano.

Have you any inventions of

your own?

I’ve got a couple of patents,

but they have never made a cent.

Most are quite technical. One

was a protein extraction robot,

which could extract protein from

milk right on a farm, to create a

much higher-value product.

If you had done this course

yourself, do you think those

inventions would have turned

out differently?

Yes, I do think so. Designing

a protein extract machine with

the end user, the farmer, in mind,

you would approach it differently.

Nespresso is a good example.

The idea was to make baristaquality

coffee, but make it easily

accessible to people at home. As

a functional product it worked

well, but it took about 30-odd

years before it took off. It didn’t

become popular until they incorporated

the different designs and

styles, and the right marketing.

And George Clooney, too, but

we don’t offer him as part of this

course, unfortunately.

If this kind of course works

so well, why hasn’t it been done

before?

I think things have come

together now for the first time.

If a student can conceive an idea

they now have all the digital tools

on their tablet to create a 3D

design. Then they can 3D print

a prototype, without needing all

the equipment they did in the

past, or having to study for years

all those industry skills you once

needed to use the equipment.

TECH: Using

technology,

like virtual

reality, is

one of the

things the

School of

Product

Design

plans

to help

students

explore.

The world is changing. Look at

China, the online connectivity

there and the number of small

companies that have developed

because of it. You can order just

about anything and have it arrive

on your doorstep a couple of

weeks later.

The other thing is artificial intelligence,

robots. Even what we

consider highly-trained knowledge

workers, I think will lose

their jobs to artificial intelligence.

Think about architecture - you

can now design your own house

using just a computer and some

software. So as that develops,

where does that leave architects

and draftsmen? But a job that

won’t be lost, is human-centred

product design.

And personally, why have you

stayed in Christchurch?

It’s this. I’ve turned down

approaches from other schools

overseas asking me to come and

do more of the same there, because

I have already followed the

classic academic career. But this,

the idea that we can take a whole

group of young people who didn’t

necessarily have a pathway open

for them, and create a host of

graduates who will go out with

these skills and with enthusiasm

to create new things: This fills me

with hope.

There is a vibe about the city

now, it is open to innovation. I

think that was the silver lining

that came from the earthquakes.

We have built modern buildings,

yes, but also the gap fillers and

the murals, which were creative

and edgy and outside the old

social norms. They’re what has

pulled people forward. People

came from all over the world to

help with rebuilding the city, and

they’re now saying what’s next? I

know that’s the question on my

mind, anyway.

East Frame work begins

I AM pleased to say

there is physical work

happening on all

committed Crown-led

projects in central

Christchurch.

Fletcher Living held

a ground-breaking ceremony at

the site last week, signalling the

start of construction on the East

Frame residential development.

Construction of the first batch

of new central city homes is officially

under way on what’s known

as Superlot 4, on the corner of

Hereford St and Latimer Square.

Crown company Ōtākaro Ltd

and Fletcher Living have been

working together on plans to create

a new central city community.

Alongside construction of the

new dwellings, Ōtākaro – which

is delivering the Crown-led anchor

projects for Christchurch –

is overseeing the construction of

the East Frame’s public realm.

This will be the third-largest

public space in Christchurch and

it’s expected to be completed by

early next year.

The biggest challenge has been

getting the mixture of housing

right. Because we are creating a

new community, homes need to

be available in a range of styles

and sizes. We want to attract as

many people as possible into this

development, so we’ve taken the

time to make sure we’ve got this

right.

Gerry Brownlee

By putting more effort into

the planning and design of the

East Frame, Ōtākaro and Fletcher

Living should be more prepared

for the construction stage of the

development.

In spite of the extra time spent

planning, the first 20 terraced

houses in the East Frame residential

development will be completed

in May 2018 – five months

ahead of the original schedule.

The East Frame will consist of

about 900 homes, with a combination

of terraced homes and

apartments. These are expected to

house more than 2000 people.

The future residents will have

everything at their doorstep. As

well as the first-class amenities,

GROUND-BREAKING:

Fletcher Building residential

and land development chief

executive Steve Evans and

Ōtākaro’s Albert Brantley.

Christchurch’s regenerating city

offers a great range of new cafes,

bars, restaurants and shops.

The East Frame homes will

flank the East Frame public

space. This is a 660m linear park

that runs through the five blocks

from Litchfield St to the Margaret

Mahy Family Playground.

Construction of the East

Frame residential development

marks an important milestone in

the rejuvenation of our city. This

fantastic new community will

attract people back into the heart

of Christchurch.

Remembering the

lives cut short by war

THIS Anzac week

we have taken the

opportunity to

reflect on the service

of thousands of men

and women who

have – and still do – dedicate

their lives to their country.

I had the privilege of attending

four ceremonies across Wigram

on Tuesday. Each service was

moving, poignant and different.

This is how it should be – communities

finding their own

unique way to remember their

pasts.

At dawn in Upper Riccarton,

an increasing number of people

each year gather in the War

Memorial Library. This small

library is run by a small but

dedicated team of volunteers.

It was at this service that I witnessed

the birth of a new Anzac

tradition – a cupcake replete

with edible poppy.

At the Hornby War Memorial,

many of the names are familiar

Hornby names. I always find it

especially poignant hearing the

local school children read out

short biographies of the names

on the memorial. This really

brings it home that these were

young men who made their

hopes and their dreams in this

same local area; who walked on

the same ground, but had their

lives cut short by war.

Another unique ceremony we

have is the service for residents

of Rannerdale Veterans Village

and their families. This ceremony

is touching in that so many

of the attendees know the lived

reality of war. The highlight this

year was that the Rannerdale

Choir debuted their Rannerdale

Song.

My day finished at the Air

Force Museum of New Zealand,

Wigram, where about a thousand

people gathered. Many of

those who attended once called

the airforce base home, and they

now mix with the more recent

recruits to the neighbourhood

from what we now call Wigram

Skies. The museum is a living

memorial to people who

have served in the Royal New

Zealand Air Force. This was

underscored by the unveiling of

an additional plaque bearing the

names of personnel who had lost

their lives serving in the airforce

in the last two years.

PROBLEM: The Ministry of Health shut down a plan for a

700-space car park near Christchurch Hospital two years ago.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Last week The Star

reported that the Ministry

of Health shut down a

plan two years ago for a

700-space car park near

Christchurch Hospital

because it decided there

was not enough demand

for it

Alison Paulsen – Is it

possible to select people with a

modicum of intelligence for these

positions? If malls, bars, etc have

to have car parks, a hospital dealing

with hundreds of people on a

24/7 basis should make parking

a priority.

Gary Fox – There’s people

screaming out for car parks at

the hospital. They have done so

for quite a while now. How is

there no demand, really? I still

think the best option is to move

the hospital to a larger site to

allow for more parking. I don’t

think it’s too late to do this and

sell the current site, as is, to a

hotel chain. The surrounding

Hagley Park would ensure quite a

nice price could be achieved.

URGENT:

a project

to have the

Citizens’ War

Memorial

moved away

from the

Catherdral

to Cranmer

Square (right).

PHOTO:

SLOAN

•From page 11

Valerie McCallum – What

a pathetic excuse. Everyone

who lives in Christchurch

knows there is a chronic shortage

of parking around hospitals.

The odd thing about this

is that there is never a shortage

at most (not all) of the malls

where taxpayers and visitors go

to spend money and time.

Linda

Hunt – Hard

when you

take someone

who is really

sick into the

accident and

emergency

department

and you are

a holder of

a disability

parking permit

and you

have to drop

them off and

leave them

alone to try

finding a car

park in the

middle of the

night. Every

disability car

park has a

car in it with no card. Took me

nearly one hour to get back to

accident and emergency after

finding a park in the middle of

nowhere. I was so scared. Then

I had to do it all again when I

left on my own to walk back

to the car. Nurses have been

attacked. Does someone have

to die before they engage their

tiny brains?

Tina Bailey – Where was

the site and is it still available?

Surely the Ministry of Health

can admit it made an error

and continue with the plan.

Parking around the hospital for

patients, visitors and staff is at

crisis point and is only getting

worse. Another example of

Christchurch getting screwed

over by the Government.

The Christchurch RSA

said that if money can be

found to put a “piece of

art in the river to collect

rubbish,” why can’t it

be found to shift the

deteriorating Citizens’ War

Memorial away from the

crumbling Christ Church

Cathedral?

Helen Ollis – I have lived

in Canterbury all my life. My

grandad fought for our country

in World War 1. My thoughts

are with soldiers present and

past, how would they feel seeing

the memorial lingering

amongst the derelict eyesore?

Stephen Graham – Leave

it where it is. It’s damaged and

shifting it would be an expensive

engineering nightmare.

It will be repaired

and in

its full glory

again. Just

need patience.

Carolyn

Fifield – I

don’t believe

the city council

can do

anything as it

is on church

land. My

understanding

is that the

church used

the insurance

money

elsewhere as

it wanted to

replace the

Cathedral

with a much

cheaper glass option, and now

do not have the funds, in spite

of funding and contributions

from central and local government,

plus millions of dollars

raised overseas.

Joy Averis – The city

council needs to get its priorities

right. Totally agree with

the RSA, the magnificent (well

it was magnificent) memorial

needs to be removed from the

sight and Cranmer Square is a

good place to have it sited. May

have to get a petition set up or

even crowd funding. Come on

city council, respect those men

who died to keep us free.

Richard Long – The whole

situation just shows how poorly

the rebuild has been handled

and its effects on residents.

Such a shame to see our city

fall into ruins with such mismanagement

and such narrowminded

thinking. I feel we have

missed the opportunity to rise

up as a world class city. The city

council, Cera, Government,

Anglican Church and all of

us should be ashamed that we

have allowed this to happen.

ADVICE with

PRIZE

PACK!

Nothing makes

the neighbours green

with envy, or the

kids happier than

a well-maintained,

lush, green lawn.

Autumn is the best

time to sow a new lawn or tackle any lawn

problems. Over sow any bare or brown patches

in the lawn with Daltons Premium 4-in-1 Lawn Patching Gold, which

has everything in one bag and is super easy to use. Feed lawns with

Daltons Premium Lawn Fertiliser until late April.

Q

A

I have used a product to spray the weeds and now have

some sparse patches.

My question is; how do I thicken my lawn and when do I do it?

Today’s winning

question came from

Kathleen Petersen.

Congratulations!

While it is rather late for sowing a lawn, soil temperatures do cool slower than air temperatures, so

you can still sow some grass seed on the patches in your lawn - but do this immediately!

Spread out Daltons Premium Lawn Mix about 40-50mm deep. Level and compact with a rake, then

broadcast the seed evenly over the area. Alternatively, if the areas are small, you can use Daltons Premium

4-in-1 Lawn Patching Gold, which has everything in one bag and is very easy to use.

Water lightly to initiate germination, which should occur between seven and ten days. If the weather suddenly

becomes very cold or there is exceptionally heavy rainfall, the amount of seed germinating will be somewhat

reduced so you will need to repeat the process in early spring of this year.

In general, to obtain the best results when establishing a lawn, grass seed should be sown in early

autumn or early spring. For more advice and varieties to grow, read the How to Grow Lawns Guide at

research observatory.

China Southern Airlines announced

it would become Mt John Observatory’s

official sponsorship partner at a

ceremony on Friday.

The university runs the facility, which

sits in a 4300 sq km area called the

Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark

Sky, near Tekapo.

Its research includes the search for

extra-solar planets, tracking of nearearth

objects and the study of pulsating,

variable and exploding stars.

Tourism company Earth & Sky runs

public tours through the facility.

Canterbury University Pro Vice

Chancellor of Science Wendy Lawson

said the partnership was “fabulous.”

She said the new partnership was

likely to boost the number of students

wanting to study astronomy.

Following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake there had been less staff

at Mt John, but more could be done

remotely through the use of new

technology.

Although financial details of the

partnership have been kept under wraps,

Professor Lawson said it would include

the public having access to the research

done there.

“It’s great to have the support.”

Ten per cent of the funding would go

to the Mackenzie District Council for

tourism infrastructure in Tekapo.

The catalyst for the partnership

came about when China Southern

Airlines began flying into Christchurch

International Airport in December, 2015

– the only Chinese airline to fly into the

South Island.

Airport chief executive Malcolm Johns

said from there, the airline asked how

it could contribute further to the South

Island.

He said Tekapo was a destination for

Chinese visitors, so the partnership

made sense.

China Southern Airlines Australasian

managing director Louis Lu said

Chinese students came to study at the

university, and a lot of people came over

to visit.

“China Southern Airlines and Mt

John Observatory are sharing the same

sky, and we are also looking forward to

the same dream to make it come true,

not only for passengers, but also for

students.”

The observatory, which opened in

1965, houses a 1.8m telescope – the

country’s largest.

Theatre/Arts

Performer treks into unknown

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

KATHLEEN BURNS has always

been captivated by the dangers

of travelling into space.

A Star Wars, Star Trek and

Battlestar Galactica enthusiast,

the 31-year-old had always loved

the “high stakes” and drama of

shows set in the galaxy.

After being heavily involved

as a performer with The Court

Theatre for more than 13 years,

Burns has taken her career in a

new direction crafting her first

original play.

The Parklands resident has

transformed one of the world’s

most well-known fairytales into

an adventurous sci-fi about a

slave space mechanic named

Cinderella.

Cinderella In Space is a new

adaptation to the 1950 Disney

animated film, telling the story

of a young heroine forced by an

evil “Captain Step-Mummy”

to clean a space station even

though she would rather build

robots.

Burns described the original

character of Cinderella as a “bit

of a victim” who gets helped out

NEW DIRECTION: Kathleen Burns on set of her first original show at The Court Theatre. ​

of her situation so she can marry

rich.

“I just think we can do better

than this . . . we can make her

a woman who does things

Step-Mummy in Kathleen Burns’ first original show Cinderella

in Space.

and affects change to her

environment and makes her a

role model worthy of aspiring

to,” she said.

Since she was a child, one of

Burns’ favourite past-times was

“writing dialogue.”

“What I didn’t know about

myself was I wanted to write

plays . . . I loved using those

speech marks,” she said.

For the past decade her

writing dreams were put on hold

to pursue performing.

She ditched her double

degree in psychology and

gender studies at Canterbury

University, going onto to study

at the National Academy of

Singing and Dramatic Art.

“I got two-and-a-half years

into it and I was like, I don’t

want to spend one more second

going down a path I don’t

want to go down, and literally

overnight I was like, I am

throwing all of this in,” she

said.

Before then, she first cut her

teeth entertaining youths on

a Friday night with The Court

Jesters.

“Definitely, you have to love

it. For starters, nobody in this

industry is paid enough to

warrant doing it without the love

and drive for it,” she said.

So far, the highlight of her

performing career was working

with well-known actor George

Henare.

“His approach to the work is

so uncomplicated and it reminds

me acting should be really

simple,” she said.

Her first gig as a writer had

her frightened but she said she

needed to try something new.

“I always knew writing is

hard. I have so much respect

for writers . . . I am still outside

thinking it is a magical allusive

thing other people do,” she

said.

High profile

faces for

Court

production

BEST KNOWN for his role

in Australian television soap

opera Neighbours, actor Stephen

Lovatt will take the stage in

The Court Theatre’s newest

production Uncle Vanya.

With a career spanning 30

years, Lovatt has performed on

stage, television and in film.

He will now play the leading

role Vanya in a show about family,

love and

heartbreak.

As part

of the story,

Vanya and his

niece Sonya

have laboured

for years on

Stephen Lovatt

Shane Bosher

their family’s

country estate

in relative harmony.

But when

Sonya’s father

returns from

the big city with

a glamorous

new bride, unfulfilled

desires

and fierce family

loyalties collide to destroy the

status quo.

The show is by Russian

playwright Anton Chekhov

(1860–1904), who is known for

his fictional short stories.

Lovatt is not the only high profile

performer involved with the

show, with four-times The New

Zealand Listener magazine’s “director

of the year” Shane Bosher

set to direct.

Bosher said he had Uncle Vanya

at the top of his “must direct”

bucket list. He said audiences will

be able to identify themselves and

the people they interact within

the show.

5 QUESTIONS WITH...DAVID SEYMOUR - ACT leader

David is an economic conservative and a

social liberal. He’s a Member of Parliament

for Epsom, ACT Party Leader, and

Parliamentary Undersecretary to the

Ministers of Education and Regulatory

Reform. He’s also a mover and shaker who

got the bars to stay open for the World Cup

and got government to make a couple of

changes to paid parental leave.

Recognized as being thoughtful, mature,

and articulate, opponents would be wise not

to underestimate this Undersecretary. We

asked him five quick questions;

You’re a bit of a builder (cars, kayaks

etc). Do you have any other hidden

talents?

I was sitting at home and some students

across the road invited me to their party

by Facebook. They are good, because 18-24

year old voter turnout is so low, politicians

need to think about how they connect with

younger

demographics because what we’re doing

clearly isn’t working. Plus they’re fun. Who

doesn’t miss the student/yo-pro years of

their life?

Can you tell us why you support the

voluntary euthanasia bill?

Three reasons. It is democratically right

when 75 per cent of New Zealanders want

change. It is legally right when the High Court

says only Parliament can make the change.

Lastly and most importantly it is morally

right. We allow people to refuse treatment,

refuse food and water, or to be given a little

too much morphine by their doctor under

the ‘double effect’ doctrine. It is not illegal to

commit amateur, violent, lonely suicide, either.

Sadly some New Zealanders take those

options, and I think we should have another

option in 2017; to choose for ourselves

though a safeguarded process.

When you’re not working, what does

David Seymour get up to in his spare

time?

My homemade sports car always needs TLC,

I would work on it almost permanently given

the chance. I try to make sure I catch up

with my close friends, my school friends at

least weekly. It’s important to remember

who you are.

If you were asked to change profession

tomorrow what would you chose to be?

I’d go back to being an electrical engineer.

There is something deeply rewarding about

using maths and science to make a better

world.

cruising CUBA

Montercristo cigars, Salsa dancing, beautiful beaches and don’t forget the rum!

Cuba is a magical country which is truly

stuck in a time warp.

From the moment you set foot in Cuba,

life seems brighter and more energetic. The

music and dancing is everywhere – in the

plazas, in the courtyards, in the bars, in the

clubs, and on the street corners.

There are a few international standard

hotels outside the beach resort areas.

Varadero, Cuba’s most popular beach resort

town is dotted with the majority of these

all-inclusive hotels. If relaxing on the beach

or free drinks by the pool are high on your

holiday priority list, you won’t be disappointed.

The sun-drenched coastline, warm weather

and turquoise waters are pinch yourself

amazing.

Those wanting a more authentic Cuban

experience will find the treasure trove of

fascinating architecture of old Habana the best

base to explore from. The old squares are like

walking back in time to the colonial era. Here

you’ll find plenty of casa particulars, which are

state approved private homes with licenses to

rent rooms to tourists. Staying at a casa

particular, is a good way to get to know

Cubans and every day life in Havana. It’s the

people of Cuba that really makes a visit to the

island unique. Since Cuba hasn’t been crushed

with an overwhelming influx of tourism - yet,

having visitors is still special for them.

Don’t expect to be wowed by Cuba’s gastronomic

delights. The food is relatively basic.

Pork is the main protein and the most popular

way you’ll see it served is in simple sandwich

form. And black beans are served with everything.

They’re like the gravy of Cuban food.

To find the most flavoursome food, paladares,

which are family owned and operated is the

best option. You’ll be able to judge the quality

by the number of locals lining up outside.

Cuba has no multinational franchises such

as McDonalds, KFC or Starbucks. You can’t

buy Coca Cola and, for the great majority of

travellers, this is an essential part of its charm.

What the food may lack in pizzaz, the

alcohol definitely makes up for. Mojitos, cuba

libres, cubanitos and are plentiful. You will be

wanting to stuff your suitcase with Cuban

rum.

There’s also no shortage of colourful 1950’s

American cars cruising the streets. These cars

have become a part of Cuba’s identity that

visitors want to see and experience.

10% Off for SUPERGOLD card holders

Conditions may apply

Regardless of political changes, we can assume

the cars will remain part of Cuba’s automotive

workforce.

From Havana in the north to Santiago in the

south is a 15 hour bus ride, so if you only have

a week you’ll want to spend the majority of

time in Havana. From Havana you can do day

trips. Matanzas (2 hrs to west) has caves and is

not far from the resorts of Varadero. Vinales

(3 hrs on the bus) to the west of Havana,

has beautiful countryside and is the heart of

Cuba’s cigar country. A visit to a cigar factory

is a must. Cigars from different batches are

actually blind tested by a team of ‘professional

smokers’, whose sole job it is to assess

qualities such as aroma, how well it burns, and

how easily it draws.

Now is the best time to get to Cuba.

Airplanes full of tourists are landing for the

first time in over 50 years, opening up a

floodgate of incoming dollars. And it’s not

Amricans, it’s everyone else trying to get there

before them. While there are direct flights

from the US, Americans still cant travel to

Cuba independently, only on organised trips.

But this will likely soon change and so too will

Cuba.

loop around lyttElton

for a post-walk caffiene injection head to one of Lyttletons’ creative coffee haunts.

Joel Hart - New Brighton. January 2017

Just twenty minutes from the centre of

town, Lyttelton was awarded the Category of

Historic Area Status, as one of the most

special places to meander outside the city.

Lyttelton has rebuilt it’s quirky, coffee

culture vibe and post Urumaru or

Whakaraupo walk, you’ll find a eclectic mix

of coffee shops to sit and relax in to recharge

your batteries.

WALK:

Urumaru Loop - 3.5 hour circular

For the nimble-footed, who like scrambling

up hills and narrow cliff paths, the Urumaru

track will reward you with amazing views over

Lyttelton Harbour, Sumner and Christchurch.

You’ll need to pick a fine day for this walk as it

includes a couple of steeper climbs and small

goat tracks. Much of the track is unformed

with simple directional markers.

Whakaraupo Loop - 2 hour circular

Another walk with great views, the

Whakaraupo Reserve on the Stan Helms

Track and back down the historic Bridle Path,

is a well formed walk.

COFFEE STOP:

Lyttelton Coffee Co - 29 London St

The 1921 heritage-noted building has one of

the best views in town. Gaining press

attention for cutting out trim milk from their

coffees (they save 15,000 milk cartons a year

from landfill, through using stainless steel milk

canisters!) Here you’ll find local art,

wholesome food and fantastic smells of

roasted coffee.

Spooky Boogie - 54 London St

A relatively new entrant on to London Street,

Spooky Boogie is the place to go if you want

to purchase some new vinyl, art or quirky

giftware. With a local reputation for great

coffee, it’s a buzzing little cafe where you can

easily while away the hours people watching

or reading the books and papers.

Shroom Room Cafe - 48 London St

You’ll find a great coffee and a varied

vegetarian menu at this eclectic cafe. On a

nice day the outdoor seating area, complete

with mismatched chairs is a relaxing spot to

enjoy one of the delicious milkshakes on

offer.

The Lonely Planet has named Christchurch as one of 39 cities around the world

with a rich street art scene.

Christchurch is spoilt for choice, with

amazing street art splashed across the central

city. Artists have transformed dilapidated

buildings and alleyways, turning them into

places of gritty beauty. What started after

the 2011 earthquakes as basic tags, quickly

grew more complex, and soon enough major

murals were starting to take up full

building walls. Well-respected graffiti artists

from outside Christchurch have added their

contributions and the city is now abundant

with colourful and vibrant works of art which

can be found on almost every corner.

Sometimes the line between graffiti art and

vandalism can be a hazy one. But the is no

question that the art has breathed a new and

colourful breath of live in to the damaged city.

Too make sure you haven’t missed some of

the hidden gems, It’s well worth having a look

on http://christchurchstreetart.co.nz for a

map of all of the murals around the city.

the dreaded turKey neck

Get rid of the ‘gobble gobble’ with the correct treatments!

If you thought your hands show your age,

take a look at your neck.

That old ‘gobble gobble’ excess of skin is

one of the hardest to fix, and it’s an area we

exercise the least and forget about with our

daily skincare routine.

Turkey neck is is the result of skin loosing

its elasticity and fat with advancing age or

through sudden weight gain or lose. While

there are some specially designed creams and

serums to target the neck area, lotions and

potions can only do so much. But fear not,

there is a step before you go to the extreme

lengths of cosmetic surgery. Advanced

skin treatments can help tighten the skin in

that area. Rosa Guthrie from The Cosmetic

Clinic says they have a fractional RF machine

which is a combination of needling and radio

frequency. “This is a treatment that involves

puncturing the epidermis (surface

layer of the skin) with hundreds of tiny

needles to cause ‘controlled trauma’ and

induce the collagen response. A numbing

cream is applied first, to reduce the

discomfort. The Radio Frequency (RF) heats

the tissue and stimulates collagen production.

This leads to the reduction of fine lines, large

pores and loose skin. Combining the two

techniques creates a much deeper and more

beneficial Collagen response than just dermal

needling alone. Less treatments are required

and results are generally much better. Great

for a neck that is starting to sag!”

It’s also important not to leave out the neck

from your facial beauty regime, after all it is an

extension of your face.

The same care and attention needs to

be spread down the neck, and even further

down to the décolletage. Serums, sunscreen

and retinol all need to be spread across the

the world famous New

to perform at “The Piano”, 156

Armagh Street, Christchurch.

This is the first time that the

band has performed a concert

in Christchurch since the

successful 50th celebration

concert in 2014. New Zealand

Army Band Bandmaster

Warrant Officer Class Two

Phillip Johnston is thrilled to

be able to showcase the band’s

talents locally in Christchurch’s

latest performing arts venue

The Piano”.

Warrant Officer

Johnston said

“the venue is

ideally suited for

a traditional brass

band concert and

it will be a great

afternoon of music

making”.

The NZArmy Band’s program

will be a trip down memory

lane as the programme features

classic brass band repertoire

such as Eric Ball’s Resurgam

and Kingdom Triumphant.

The band has six current New

Zealand solo champions and

will feature three of them

whole area. Often you see older woman with

beautiful youthful skin on their face, but look

further down to their neck, décolletage and

hands, this shows the real age. This is due to

those areas being forgotten and neglected.

Many of our clients ‘add on’ neck, décolletage

and hands to our skin microdermabrasion and

laser treatments.”

Short of wearing a roll-neck all year round,

there is also another non-surgical procedure

that you should be booking in for. This

treatment the ‘Nefertiti lift’.

The name refers to the Egyptian princess

Nefertiti who was renowned for her long

elegant neck. The actual procedure itself,

consists of lots of little anti wrinkle

injections to the area, which relaxes the

platysmal muscles which are major depress

ors of the lower face. The results are a more

defined jawline and more youthful appearance.

Like the hands and under eye area, the neck

tends to give away our age. We use a series

of anti wrinkle injections into the platysmal

bands (neck lines) and the lines on the lower

part of the face. Lots of little injection sites

which are superficial so relatively painless.

When the anti wrinkle kicks in, the sites that

were injected, relax. Unlike traditional

treatments to the frown, forehead or crows,

which focus on reducing wrinkles, this

treatments focuses on changing facial

contouring with the use of an anti wrinkle

(neurmodulator).”

The neck is not the easiest of areas to treat,

but by using the right products and

treatments, you’ll be better equipped to turn

your neck from turkey back to spring chick.

6 LAW/ MIND

ENDURING POWERS

OF ATTORNEY

WORDS FLEUR MCDONALD

As many of you will be aware in 1988, the

Protection of Personal and Property Rights

Act enabled you to appoint a person you trust

to manage your affairs under

Enduring Powers of Attorney (Enduring

Power(s)). What you may not be aware of is

that on 16 March 2017 changes were made to

the Act and its Regulations, which effect how

we make Enduring Powers and how these

documents operate.

The Forms

The most obvious change is how the new

Enduring Powers look. From the 16 March

2017 Enduring Powers need to be made

using a prescribed form. The new forms

contain additional information in the hopes

that Donors (the person giving the power)

will have a better understanding of what

Enduring Powers do and the implications

of the documents for the Donor and their

Attorney(s).

• Witnessing Requirements on

Mutual Enduring Powers

Since changes made to Enduring Powers in

September 2008, there has been

considerable confusion and discussion over

the witnessing of mutual Enduring Powers

where a husband and wife are appointing

each other. Changes to the Act clarify this

position. Now where there is no more

than a negligible risk of a conflict of interest,

the same person can witness both Donors

execution of the documents.

Best practice and difficulties in quantifying

what might constitute no more than a

negligible risk may see your legal advisor

choosing to require that separate people

continue to witness each Donor’s signature.

• Consultation

Previously an Attorney acting under

AWAITING COPY

Filename: FG5448

Enduring Powers was required to consult with

the Donor and any other person the Donor

had specified in their Enduring Powers. The

obligation to consult has now been extended

to require an Attorney to consult with any

other Attorney under the particular

Enduring Power, along with any Attorney

appointed under another Enduring Power.

• Revoking the appointment of an Attorney

The new forms allow a Donor to revoke an

Attorneys appointment without revoking

the entire Enduring Power so long as there

is at least one other Attorney remaining.

• Revocation of the Enduring Powers

Enduring Powers can be revoked at any

time by a Donor giving notice to the

Attorney, whilst that Donor has capacity. If

the new Enduring Powers state that they

revoke earlier Enduring Powers,

revocation of the earlier Enduring Powers

may be effected by the Donor or someone

other than the Donor. This includes notice

being given at a later time in the event that

the Donor becomes mentally incapable.

Please note that if you have started new

Enduring Powers prior to 16 March 2017, but

you were unable to complete the documents,

they will no longer be valid and must be

redrafted in the new forms. If you and your

Attorney(s) executed your Enduring Powers

prior to 16 March 2017, the documents will

continue to be valid.

Enduring Powers of Attorney are very

important estate planning tools and we

recommend that everyone should have these

valuable documents in place, regardless of age

or circumstances.

When making a decision regarding your

Enduring Powers it is critical you seek legal

advice from a team who understand how your

decisions now may impact on you and your

legal requirements in later years. Please call

Fleur McDonald on 03 352 2293 to arrange

an appointment to discuss your situation.

The Pure Food Co concept was born as a

result of a terrible circumstance. Cancer of

the jaw made it impossible for one of the

founder’s loved ones to eat normal food. He

required a radically modified diet that was

safe to swallow which robbed him of the

enjoyment and independence of eating. The

team’s research revealed that for far too many

people in a similar predicament, the eating

experience consisted of consuming

unappealing purées, baby food or worse still

not consuming food at all. Sam and co

founders Maia and George decided to do

something about the situation and The Pure

Food Co turned into a genuine market

opportunity.

The hugely successful and expanding brand,

which now serves close to 25,000 meals each

month is in major hospitals, aged care

facilities and sold direct to peoples homes.

The meals are served as individual

components (meat, vegetables and carbs)

which all look and taste like the regular meal,

rather than combined into a single pureed

dish.

Category winners at the NZ Food Awards,

they started with a philosophy that if they

wouldn’t serve it to their grandparents or eat

it themselves, they would not provide it to

their customers.

“In developing the wide range of foods, we

looked to classics such as roast lamb, and

introduced modern favourites such as

“Eight percent of all peoplbe have some

form of eating disability requiring texture

modified foods - this percentage is greatly

increased in aged care where conditions such

as neck and throat problems, cancer

treatment and strokes all require a special

textured diet. The conventional puree food

or protein drink options are extremely limited

and do not encourage sustainable diets.”

Malnutrition is a major problem across all

residents in the aged care sector. “Studies

indicate that as many as 47% of people

entering aged care are already malnourished

and the majority of other residents have some

risk indicators. Our food is the best of real

foods and natural fortification to provide

clinical benefits. There is increasing evidence

from international studies that malnutrition

has a massive impact on many other factors

related to aged care i.e. weight management,

falls and incidents, ward care days, cognitive

condition, nursing support, well being and

quality of life and this has a major impact of

As if any extra street cred was needed for

“This is a natural next step for us to involve

Kaye more closely in consulting on food

8 MOTORING

JUST THE CAT’S WHISKERS

My introduction to Jaguar’s new F-Pace sport utility vehicle

was a little out of the ordinary.

At first use I was driving at considerable speed on a slalom

course on one of the runways at the old Wigram Air Force

base.

It was part of an event titled the Jaguar Art of Performance

Tour which showcased various Jaguar models in a sporty

environment.

The F-Pace was well suited to the challenge, even against

its far sportier stablemates, the heritage for which we know

Jaguar was immediately evident.

The vehicle this evaluation focuses on is a little different to

the one I drove at Wigram, instead of being diesel-powered,

it has a 3-litre supercharged V6 engine. English car makers are

no strangers to the supercharging concept, they’ve been doing

it since Bentley in the 1930s, and Jaguar’s partner Land-Rover

have produced many Range Rover models with superchargers.

With that statement in mind, the F-Pace arrives here in six

variations with three engine options, the 2-litre four-cylinder

diesel as mentioned, a 3-litre V6 diesel and two supercharged

V6s depending on how much power you want to own –

250kW or 280kW.

The range spans from $95,000 to $130,000 for the rangetopper

as tested.

For that money you get a wealth of specification, all of the

items you would expect in a luxury car, and those fitting the

Jaguar brand are fitted to the F-Pace.

The concept of the F-Pace is different to that of any Jaguar

I’ve driven before. As a company Jaguar knew that it would

have to produce an SUV in order to stay competitive in

the global market, and the way it has done that is far from

traditional, the F-Pace S has style and design flair, it is far from

boxy, yet still offers the practicality we demand from SUVs,

along with providing stunning performance.

Against its V8 powered stablemates the F-Pace’s 2995cc

engine may seem a little underwhelming, but at 280kW and

450Nm it does have enormous get up and go. According to

Jaguar, the S will scamper to 100km/h from a standstill in

5.1sec, and it will lunge through a highway overtake in 3.8sec.

Jaguar also claim a 250km/h top speed.

Drive flows through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

It is a classy unit, with ratios and shift patterns well suited

to the strong boost of supercharged power. As you would

expect, there are sport shift protocols and an eco mode

for those inevitable times when you are caught up in traffic.

In eco mode there is gentle response to accelerator, which

under those circumstances is by far the best option.

For the Jaguar enthusiast who is familiar with the centre

console-mounted gear shift dial, it is there in the F-Pace.

Early January was a good time to be on the road evaluating

as there was little traffic and dry roads. I took the test car on

a long highway loop just east of the main divide on the scenic

route SH72.

The F-Pace cruises much like its high-profile stablemates, it

is quiet and takes on quite a sporty persona, unlike many of

the SUVs in today’s market. There is little indication of height

(1652mm), the centre of gravity seems low, body movement

over the suspension is controlled and balanced. The fully

independent system can be felt working, especially the rear

cultures, cuisines and landscapes, with a

linkages, but you would expect that from Jaguar; as a company

it builds vehicles that offer an involving driving experience.

The F-Pace has drive to all four wheels and it is an adaptive

system, sending power to the rear when grip is threatened. In

most cases the F-Pace would have a life on-road, it’s not an

actual off-roader as such, but with 213mm of ground

clearance it does have useful cross-country ability.

Providing the grip are huge Continental tyres (255/50 x

20in) which send strong information to the driver. On the

Wigram slalom course there was little indication of push at

the front or oversteer from the rear, steerage is direct and

turn-in strong and decisive.

The F-Pace in this form is also a frugal highway cruiser. The

engine is loping along slowly at just 1700rpm at 100km/h

sipping fuel at the rate of just 7.5-litre per 100km (38mpg).

Jaguar claim an 8.9l/100km (32mpg) combined cycle average

which sits well with the trip computer readout of 10l/100km

(28mpg) during my four days with the evaluation car.

Jaguar’s first foray into the sport utility vehicle market is a

result of many years of development, the F-Pace is a late entry

but you can guarantee it has been engineered so that it won’t

disappoint. You can certainly see that in its styling, it is a cross

between sporty and functionality, and as a Jaguar owner you

wouldn’t want anything less.

I enjoyed my time with the vehicle, I’d be torn between

petrol and diesel power and I hope to drive the latter at some

point. However, in the interim, I’m sold, if I was a luxury car

SUV buyer, it would be the top of my list.

SPECTACULAR: Cruising into one of the fiords on the Emerald Princess and passing by Bowen Falls.

Drifting through Fiordland

• By Mike Yardley

CRUISING through our

fiords had been lingering

on my wish-list for quite

some time.

I revere Fiordland and its

formidable terrain, which

produces its own weather

pattern, with an annual

rainfall index measured in

metres.

Recently, I boarded

Princess Cruises’ latest

liner to potter around our

coastline, Emerald Princess,

which is a novel way

to appreciate the beauty of

your own country.

Sailing overnight from

Port Chalmers, I awoke

early to grizzled misty

skies, as we entered the

remote, untouched reaches

of our biggest fiord, Dusky

Sound. Fortified with

freshly brewed coffee, I

ventured out on the promenade

deck, as we glided

by cinematic mountain

ranges, garlanded in wispy

long white clouds.

Fleetingly, a flash of frolicking

dolphins was lapped

up with palpable passenger

delight. In stark contrast to

the heavy swells rounding

the South Otago Coast,

the inky waters of Dusky

Sound were millpondsmooth,

as if the ship was

gliding on an ice rink.

To marvel at this masterpiece

of grand-scale nature

from the vantage point of

a cruise ship really is quite

breath-taking. Fiordland

boasts 14 fiords and after

Dusky, our next assignment

was the exalted grandeur

of Doubtful Sound.

Entering its snout, this

sky-piercing cathedral of

sheer granite walls feels

positively Jurassic, otherworldly

and all-consuming.

The live soundtrack of lofty

waterfalls cascading down

the sheep granite slopes

serenaded our arrival,

while lumbering fur seals

wallowed on rocks by the

entrance to the fiord.

The sheer, rugged landscape

of towering mountains,

clad in primeval

rainforest had me halfexpecting

a brachiosaurus

to shuffle into view.

The heroic dimensions

and the untouched beauty

of the fiord that makes

Doubtful such a profound

encounter. Later in the

day, the clouds cleared

and spectacular sunshine

bathed us in warmth, just

as we entered Fiordland’s

most famous poster-child,

Milford Sound.

The recent precipitation

turned on a giant waterworks

spectacle, with a

vast curtain of waterfalls

thundering down the rock

faces to the sea.

I spied the vein-like

patterning of Bowen Falls

turning on a splashy show,

beyond the ship’s stern.

On starboard side, the

backside of Mitre Peak,

thrust its majestic presence

towards the heavens – the

world’s tallest mountain to

rise directly from the sea.

The thick forests that

carpeted the mountains

took on an emerald hue

in the golden autumn sun.

But for all its wraparound

photogenic splendour,

it’s your relative sense of

insignificance that comes

into sharp relief, when

thrust into the bosom of

such ravishing, grand-scale

majesty.

I felt like a speck of life

in a landscape carved

for giants. And the

113,000 tonnes of the

15-storeyed Emerald

Princess was similarly

rendered comically small,

in the clutches of such

granite-walled grandeur.

Drifting through the

fiords, retired Department

of Conservation senior

ranger, Ian Thorne, was

our expert guide with a

treasure-chest of nuggets

to share with us, after

clocking up 35 years of

conservation work in

Fiordland.

Ian specialised in

biodiversity work with

endangered birds and

leading pest eradication

programmes. It was a thrill

to see Fiordland’s offshore

islands up-close, which are

veritable arks for our most

endangered species.

Richard Henry was

one of pioneering

conservationists,

transferring kakapo and

kiwi to islands in Dusky

Sound, over a century

ago. Many of the kakapo

call Anchor Island home,

which is predator free. Ian

has worked extensively on

its neighbour, Resolution

Island, eradicating stoats

in pursuit of predator-free

status, too.

Passing by Wet Jacket

Arm, Ian remarked that

this is where 10 Canadian

moose were let loose in

the forest, in 1910. In spite

of persistent rumours

of moose sightings, no

evidence has surfaced that

they’ve survived.

As we exited Dusky, we

drifted by another DOC

sanctuary, Breaksea Island,

which clocked up a worldfirst

for its successful rat

eradication programme.

For all of the stupidity

wrought by our forebears,

introducing pests to our

country, the tireless endeavours

to safeguard our

natural species in Fiordland’s

dedicated sanctuaries

is patriotically uplifting to

see.

WILDLIFE:

Fur

seals in

Doubtful

Sound.

FAST FACTS

•Princess Cruises operates

a series of Australasian

and South Pacific cruises,

with five ships currently

home-ported down

under. An extensive

schedule of sailings into

Fiordland will resume

later in the year, in the

2017/18 summer season.

Bowers Builders

Renovations and house levelling has

long been a speciality of Bowers Builders.

Their team of five builders has 90 years

of collective experience in the industry,

with owners Johnnie and Amanda directly

involved in the management of every

project.

“We will take on the jobs that are outside

the box – nothing is too hard,” say Amanda,

who meets all new clients with Johnnie to

talk over their specific building situation.

“Once we start work on the job our client’s

hardest decision should just be choosing the

paint colour.”

Clear and honest communication is

integral to their business, with all work

completed to a very high standard that will

last over time. From a new garage floor that

is complicated due to land conditions, an

almost complete renovation of an inner city

cottage, to demanding hill sites that require

helicopter access, Amanda and Johnnie

work together to come up with a realistic

solution for all involved.

They are well used to working with a

range of agencies and specialists such as

structural and geotechnical engineers, and

have reliable sub-contractors to complete

any electrical, plumbing, complex brick

work and roofing work.

things just take longer than others,” says

Amanda.

Fresh driveline for

Peugeot 2008

• By Ross Kiddie

I’M A firm believer in the

two-wheel-drive sport

utility vehicle market.

The reason being is that

most SUV buyers have no

intention of taking their

cars/wagons into a loose

surface environment, there

is mostly little need for

four-wheel-drive.

A lot of manufacturers

are into that concept and

they are increasing the

number of 2WD SUVs.

Peugeot has just launched a

new crossover/SUV/wagon

– the 2008. While its concept

has been around for

a few years, the newcomer

has a fresh driveline and a

fairly hefty upgrade.

Loosely based around

the 208 platform, the 2008

is an SUV of mini proportions

at just over 4m, but it

has a practical interior that

is capable of transporting

awkward loads with adaptable

and versatile rear seat

configurations.

It is also a comfortable

car for four adults, it’s a bit

of squeeze width-wise for

three adults in the rear but

there’s no shortage of head

or leg room, and the 2008

is clever in the way it translates

its limited space into

occupant comfort.

The 2008 lands here in

two levels, $34,990 will get

you into the Allure, an extra

$2000 will buy what Peugeot

describes as the GT-Line, it

gets a wealth of sporty trim

accents, bigger wheels (17in)

and a higher spec including

a clever grip control system.

Effectively, it is an advanced

traction and stability control

programme that also allows

the 2008 to tackle those offthe-seal

situations that arise

from time to time, but bearing

in mind cross-country

travel is limited.

Under the bonnet is a

new turbocharged, threecylinder

engine and sixspeed

transmission which

is finding its way across

Peugeot and Citroen lineups.

I’ve encountered

this unit in other Peugeot

product and it is an engine

which punches well above

its weight, you have to discard

the notion of it being

small, it is a strong, capable

PEUGEOT 2008: Sport utility vehicle of mini proportions.

power plant which thrills

with its honesty.

Peugeot rates the 1192cc

unit at a healthy 81kW and

205Nm. Not only are they

high outputs for engine

size, it’s the area where the

power is developed that

is most interesting. Peak

power comes in at just

5500rpm and maximum

torque is available from

1500rpm, both low in the

rev band and that is what

you need in all engines,

the ability to haul from low

revolutions. Boost from the

turbocharger is also constant,

there is little lag at

any point.

• Price – Peugeot

2008, $36,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4159mm;

width, 1829mm;

height, 1556mm

• Configuration –

Three-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1199cc,

81kW, 205Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.3sec

• Fuel usage –

4.8l/100km

If you also add in the

benefit of a six-speed

automatic, there’s never a

point where you think the

gearing and engine output

aren’t matched, the driveline

is fluid and responsive.

Peugeot also list a 1280kg

kerb weight for the 2008,

that’s quite light, offering

a healthy power-to-weight

ratio.

The gearing has been

structured so that there

is reasonable acceleration

to highway speed with

TECHNOLOGY: Satellite navigation is fitted to the

higher grade variant of the Peugeot 2008.

a tallish top gear so that

the engine is relaxed at

100km/h, turning over

slowly at 2000rpm.

At that speed the engine

is sipping fuel at the rate of

just five-litres per 100km

(56mpg), that promoted a

7.2l/100km (39mpg) average

during my time behind

the wheel. These are satisfactory

figures but are a

little distant to Peugeot’s

4.8l/100km (58mpg)

combined cycle claim,

although my driving style

doesn’t augur well for fuel

economy.

On the subject of figures,

the 2008 is lively enough,

it will reach 100km/h from

a standstill in just over

10sec and will complete a

highway overtake in 6.9sec

(80km/h to 120km/h).

Peugeot has always had

a reputation for ride/handling

quality and that has

been engineered into the

2008. It has a compliant,

moderately-firmed ride

with a handling feel that

is moderately sporty. The

chassis isn’t disturbed by

mid-corner bumps or road

deviations, the suspension

does a good job of keeping

body balance.

Providing the grip are

205/50 Good Year tyres,

according to the casing they

are worded all season and

during my time with the

test car they were certainly

put to the test on wet surfaces,

heavy rain lowered

grip levels substantially.

Nevertheless, the entire

car felt secured to the

road and steering feel is

another Peugeot hallmark,

the 2008 as a package constantly

feels controlled and

safe.

The latter of course is

five-star rated and sits

beside a healthy level of

specification, major features

include satellite navigation,

touch screen infotainment,

cruise control

and speed limiter and high

quality trim materials.

The new 2008 is an

example of a good car

made better, the new driveline

is certainly a case of

less is more.

Why Ben Matulino is leaving the Warriors

• By Michael Burgess

FOR DEPARTING Warriors

prop Ben Matulino, the Ivan

Cleary factor was the single

biggest reason in his decision to

sign for West Tigers.

It was confirmed close to

midnight on Tuesday that

Matulino had agreed terms with

the Sydney club, after a week of

speculation about his future.

The Warriors statement emphasised

that Matulino wanted

to experience “living in Sydney

with his family” but the 28-yearold

confirmed that his close

relationship with Cleary sealed

the deal.

“I’ve always had a close bond

with [Cleary] and he was the

main drawcard for me,” Matulino

told Radio Sport on Tuesday

night.

“I know how he operates – seeing

what he has done with other

teams – and I was pretty keen to

get on board with that.”

Matulino also revealed that he

came extremely close to signing

for Penrith to rejoin Cleary a few

years ago, and obviously wasn’t

going to pass up another opportunity.

“A couple of years back he

almost got me to Penrith,” said

Matulino.

“I was a couple of days away

from signing there and I ended

up staying with the Warriors.

“[This decision was about]

linking up with my old coach

The Star

and testing myself in a different

environment. For me it was

about getting a fresh start –

starting from the bottom of the

pecking order and working my

way up.”

Cleary gave Matulino his

NRL debut at the Warriors in

2008, and three seasons later

Matulino was the cornerstone

of the Warriors pack that went

to the grand-final. He has had

patches of good form over the

last few seasons, but never really

recaptured his best under

the Warriors’ revolving cast of

coaches since 2012.

The news is another blow to

the Auckland club off the back of

Kieran Foran’s likely move to the

Bulldogs for the 2018 season.

Matulino managed 48 minutes

in Tuesday night’s 20-14 loss

to the Storm, his first match of

the season after a longer than

expected recovery from knee

surgery.

Following in Steven Adams’ footsteps

• By Gordon Findlater

ANGUS MCWILLIAM will

follow in the footsteps of Kiwi

NBA star Steven Adams when he

joins Texas Christian University

next year.

McWilliam, 17, has committed

to play at TCU under coach

Jamie Dixon, who was Adams’

head coach at the University of

Pittsburgh from 2012-2013.

“What Steven Adams is doing

is the goal for many of us,” said

McWilliam. “To know that a

coach I’m going to be playing for

helped him get to where he is,

that’s really cool to know.”

The 2.10m power forward

came to TCU’s attention during a

trip with the Mainland Eagles to

Las Vegas in December. TCU assistant

head coach David Patrick

was impressed with McWilliam

and invited him for an official

visit to the university in January,

where he met Dixon.

They were just so welcoming

and made me feel part of the

family right from the get go. I was

pretty sold on it when I came back

from the visit,” said McWilliam.

Dixon was in Christchurch

earlier this month, where he

spent time with McWilliam’s

family and also held a coaching

seminar at Middleton Grange,

McWilliam’s high school.

After 13 years as head coach at

Pittsburgh, Dixon joined TCU

last year and led them to the NIT

championship, widely regarded

as the second biggest prize in

college basketball.

In July, McWilliam will

travel to Egypt with the Junior

Tall Blacks to compete at the

under-19 basketball World Cup.

After the World Cup, he will

finish his final year at Middleton

Grange, where he is deputy head

boy, and hopes to play for the

Canterbury Rams before making

the trip to Texas.

Christ’s play for

Moascar Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

THE OPENING round of the UC

Championship will see Christ’s

College challenge Nelson College

for the Moascar Cup, secondary

school rugby’s equivalent of the

Ranfurly Shield.

Christ’s will be coached by

former All Black captain Reuben

Thorne for a second season. Last

year, they finished at the top of

the round-robin before losing

to Shirley Boys’ High School in

a muddy semi-final. Nelson has

held the Moascar Cup since June.

Christchurch Boys’ High School

will be expected to brush aside

their opening clash of the season

when they host Waimea Combined.

St Thomas of Canterbury

College will host Burnside High

School. St Thomas will be boosted

by the services of former CBHS

player and Brisbane Broncos

recruit Jordan Riki.

Enari thinking attack at under-20 rugby world champs

• By Campbell Burnes

THE NEW Zealand under-20s

are mindful of having a back up

plan to their attacking strategy

ahead of next month’s world

champs in Georgia.

Last year in England, New

Zealand clearly had the most

talented backs – such as Shaun

Stevenson and Jordie Barrett –

and ability to play high octane

rugby, but when the weather

turned and the refereeing and

opposition tactics were not conducive

to running rugby, they

did not handle the pressure, their

loss to Ireland leading to a lowly

fifth place finish.

“We’ve looked at our attack

structures and where we want

to attack. We’re hopeful about

the weather in Georgia and that

will play in our favour,” said New

Zealand coach Craig Philpott.

New Zealand will get to try

out some of those attacking

structures this Friday against

Fiji on the Gold Coast when the

Oceania under-20 championship

begins. There is still much to play

for among the 31 players, as the

final cull for Georgia will see 28

travelling to the world champs.

Canterbury halfback Ere Enari

is the vice-captain and has the

green light to control some of the

options.

“We haven’t quite got that far

yet (on tweaking the attack) but

the learnings from last year are

that we shouldn’t be too onedimensional

and be able to adapt

on the day,” said the 19-year-old.

He is one of four former St

Kentigern College first XV players

so Enari knows a bit about

high performance teams.

But things have not all been

plain sailing for Enari since he

left school, due to a 2015 broken

leg. But he did play for the 2015

New Zealand Universities side –

he is in his third year of a BCom

at Lincoln – before appearing in

nine games for the 2016 Mitre

10 Cup premiership champions

Canterbury.

Now he is on a Crusaders

training contract.

But before Georgia, he and the

team need to front in Australia.

In 2016, he came off the bench in

one Oceania game.

“It’ll be a bigger challenge this

time as we only get one crack at

Australia (May 6). We want to

perform in each test because it’ll

be quite a similar schedule to the

World Cup.” –NZ Herald

How to stay

warm and dry

Kiwi homes contain hidden health dangers. Yet first aid

for unhealthy homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can make a

home more saleable as well as a healthier place to live.

Many older homes are cold and

damp and sometimes have other

hazards such as lead-based paint and

asbestos.

There are a number of steps to take

to make your home more healthy.

They include behavioural change,

the cheapest way to make your home

healthier is to open windows to

ventilate.

If you’re out a lot, but want to

increase natural ventilation buy some

security window stays or locks that

allow you to leave windows slightly

open when you’re out. This can be a lot

cheaper to buy and run than high-tech

systems.

If nothing else, insulate the ceiling

and under the house. The Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority

(EECA) has information on its website

about funding grants available through

the Warm Up New Zealand campaign.

By 1 July 2019 all rental properties

must have ceiling and underfloor

insulation Ventilation systems move

moisture from the air making the

home healthier and feel warmer.

Adding a sheet of heavy polythene

beneath a home can provide an efficient

moisture barrier beneath piled homes.

A heat pump will warm and ventilate

rooms in the winter and cool them in

the summer. Watch out for hard sell in

this market though and shop around

before buying heating or ventilation

systems.

EECA suggests a number of different

options for secondary glazing, which

is cheaper than retrofitting double

glazing.

Alternatives include DIY window

insulation, aluminium framed

secondary glazing on the inside of

the existing glazing, or acrylic sheets

attached internally.

The latest technology is Low-E films,

which are stuck to existing windows.

This can reduce heat loss by 42 per cent

says Chris Olson, general manager of

ThermafilmNZ.

Healthy homes aren’t just about

insulation and moisture removal.

Using fewer toxic chemicals can

make your home healthier to live in.

Parents of young children sometimes

worry about exposure to chemicals as

do asthma sufferers. As a result some

buyers will also be impressed.

Dust mites can make a home

unhealthy to live in. Use a hepa filter

on your vacuum cleaner or at least

vacuum more often and empty the bag

between cleans.

Decluttering as well reduces the

places that dust can build up.

Mould spores can be very bad

for your lungs. If mould builds up

anywhere in your house clean it off as

soon as possible. If this is an ongoing

problem consider ways to reduce the

humidity.

If your home was built before the

1980s watch out for lead paint and

asbestos. Both should be removed by

an expert.
