THEY ARE ruthless, aggressive,

and have represented New

Zealand at 30 international

championships around the world

– but you probably haven’t heard

of them.

Meet Jenny Wilkinson and

Shirley Newton, Christchurch’s

bridge playing dream-team.

They are now New Zealand’s

longest-standing bridge partnership,

playing together since 1989.

This year they will be off again,

flying to South Korea at the end

of the month to compete in the

Asia Pacific Bridge Federation

Championships, then to France

in August for the World Bridge

Teams Championships.

CHRISTCHURCH principals

are worried about the impact

controversial American series

13 Reasons Why will have on

students.

They have sought advice from

school guidance counsellors on

how to deal with the impact the

series may be having on students.

Some have written to parents

and staff to make them aware

of the R18 show, which can be

streamed online, and how they

can respond to it.

The Netflix series tells the story

of Hannah Baker, a high school

student who commits suicide. She

leaves behind tapes outlining the

reasons that lead to her decision.

The series, which is based on a

2007 Jay Asher novel, also deals

with other highly sensitive issues.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School’s letter to parents said it

was concerned the “revenge fantasy”

series could lead to a “suicide

contagion” and advised parents

to encourage young people not to

watch it.

Headmaster Nic Hill said he

did not think the students should

watch it – but it was likely they

would.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News.................................... 3-15

The highly controversial but

very popular Netflix series 13

Reasons Why has principals

and parents concerned. And it

is no wonder as it deals with

some very intense issues.

Even though it comes with

an R18 censorship rating, it

is a streamed series making it

highly accessible. Principals

have sought advice from counsellors

on how to deal with

issues that may arise as a result

and, hopefully, their advice

may assist you.

On a much lighter note, tomorrow

exactly 100 years ago,

The Star reported a very “solemn”

event in the city (page

4) – the election of the first

woman city councillor. It was

described as a “terrible prospect”.

It is a bit of a chuckle, the

description of the poor lads

“gloomily debating” what Mrs

Ada Wells should be called.

We have two great longreads

this week, Aranui’s

changing attitude to police

(page 13-14) and a look at our

new rebuild boss MP Nicky

Wagner (page 15).

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw Canterbury University complete its

move from the city to its Ilam campus (right) on May 1, 1975.

On May 2, 1872, the new St Michael’s Anglican Church was

opened. On May 3, 1851, George Gould opened a shop in

Christchurch. The business eventually became part of Pyne

Gould Guinness and Co. On May 3, 1985, 6000 people rallied

against the All Black tour of South Africa. On May 4, 1932, a

strike started at Christchurch Tramway. One of the most bitter

in the city’s history, it lasted 16 days. There were many injuries

and arrests among the strikers. The tram sheds were barricaded

with barbed wire, and trams were fitted with wire mesh screens

over their windows to ward off attacks. On May 4, 1981, the

southern arterial (Brougham St to Curletts Rd) was opened. On

May 5, 1970, Canadian Premier, Pierre Trudeau visited the city.

All you need to know about the Lions tour

A MONTH out from the British

and Irish Lions’ first game, Star

Media has launched its allnew

Rugby News guide to the

punishing five-week tour of New

Zealand.

The Lions Tour Special

Collectors’ Edition is crammed

with match guides, everything you

need to know about the tourists

(and probably a fair bit you didn’t

need to know, too), as well as

expert analysis from former All

It’s packed with attitude from

In Brief

CAMPAIGNER DIES

Disability sector campaigner

Alexia Pickering passed away

last Thursday, aged 87. She was

born with spina bifida, and

was a tireless campaigner in

the disability sector, including

introducing the idea of accessible

parking spaces initially trialled

in Christchurch. In 1996 she was

made a member of the Queen’s

Service Order for services to

the community, and in 2005,

was made a Companion of the

New Zealand Order of Merit

for her services to people with

disabilities. Her late husband,

Neville Pickering was a Labour

MP, before being a city councillor,

and mayor of Christchurch from

1971-1974.

NURSES FIND JOBS

More Christchurch nursing

students have found jobs this

year than anywhere else in the

country. Of the 109 Ara Institute

of Canterbury nursing students

who graduated last year, 95 per

cent found work as nurses. The

national average nursing graduate

employment rate was 73 per cent.

WALKING TRACK SAFE

Geotechnical engineers and

abseilers spent yesterday morning

trying to make a rocky bluff above

Dyers Pass Rd and the Harry Ell

walking track safe. Abseilers used

a crowbar to pry loose an unstable

boulder. It had come lose because

of the water dropped on it during

the aerial assault on the Port Hills

fire.

APPLICATION REVISED

A revised application for a

controversial bottle store on

Trafford St has now been

submitted to the city council. A

hearing was set for the end of

March, for a bottle store at 2A

Trafford St, but it was withdrawn

days before because the applicant

Sarmarth Rajeshkumar

Limbachiya wanted to double the

size, with shorter opening hours.

It has now been publicly notified.

Residents are still vowing to fight

the application.

Card duo

•From page 1

Through competing, Mrs Newton

said the pair had been able to

have some amazing adventures

around the world, from riding

camels in the desert to exploring

markets in Asia.

Their usual policy was “what

goes on tour stays on tour,” she

said.

But they had plenty of stories –

like one experience while taking

a bus through a “dubious” neighbourhood

in Tunisia in North

Africa.

“Someone pinched my bum. I

turned around and it was the oldest,

wrinkliest old man. I elbowed

Jenny, and she turned around and

just burst out laughing,” she said.

Although they had plenty of fun

while on tour, during the tournaments

they stayed very focused,

she said.

The pair first competing together

in 1989, when they made the

World Championships in Perth.

Since then, they have played for

New Zealand as partners almost

every year, and had steadily improved,

she said.

Their best performance was a

fifth placing in the World Games

Historic election recognised

• By Caitlin Miles

IT WAS called “solemn” news –

the most important item of the

week.

Though it sounded like someone

had died, or there had been

a great tragedy to hit the city, it

was in fact the announcement of

the first woman city councillor

in Christchurch.

Tomorrow marks the day, 100

years ago, The Star reported that

women’s rights campaigner and

Labour candidate Ada Wells was

elected to the city council.

And it appeared that the biggest

problem the city had with

it, was that lads around the city

council tables would have to

change their smoking habits and

figure out what to call her.

The lads, according to the article,

“were found gathered in little

knots gloomily debating whether

a lady member could be a called

‘councillor’ or . . . ‘counciloress’

or ‘councillorine’.

Then the worst part.

The council has been a masculine

organisation for so long

that many of its unwritten rules

will have to go by the board now.

“For instance, there is that

humanitarian rule that members

may smoke ‘in committee’ and

Heathcote city councillor Sara

Templeton had a bit of laugh

when she came upon the article

– which was shown to her by

a city council staff member’s

daughter.

“Looking back it seems so silly

that they were ‘gloomy’ and confused

about what we now take

for granted and see as completely

normal,” she said.

PUG BOAT. Four-year-old pug Nixon has serious spinal issues and lost the use of his legs. An underwater treadmill helps his

recovery.

Water gets Nixon walking again

• By Ashleigh Monk

NIXON IS a remarkable wee

dog.

The four-year-old pug has

had spinal issues for almost

two years, and after surgery last

month, Nixon lost all sensation

in his back legs.

Owners Josie and Dan

Mathieson were “devastated”

when he was given just a 50 per

cent chance of walking again.

But, Nixon has been dubbed

the “Benjamin Button” of the

dog world, after, for the first

time in three weeks, he took his

first steps and defied the medical

odds.

“No one really knows how

Nixon is actually standing and

walking right now,” said animal

physiotherapy technician Oliver

Gooday.

He said Nixon couldn’t go

to the toilet on his own, and

needed monitoring to make sure

he didn’t twist his spine.

Mrs Mathieson said Nixon

was “like her child” and she

was devastated when he became

paralysed.

“It was really upsetting. I felt

a bit responsible in a way,” she

said.

“But a few days after [the

surgery] he started to get back

to himself. I realised that even

though he couldn’t walk, it

didn’t seem to bother him too

much.”

Nixon went to physio about

four times a week and even

wore a pug-sized life jacket as he

walked in the underwater treadmill

to strengthen his legs.

Nixon would continue to have

treatment at the clinic, and Mr

Gooday hoped the pug would be

“bounding around in no time”.

A MAN who suffered severe

burns after an accidental garage

fire in Woolston has died.

The 50-year-old man was flown

to Middlemore Hospital on April

12 but succumbed to his injuries

on April 26.

Police said he had been living in

the garage that caught fire.

A neighbour, who did not want

to be named, said there were

about “10 explosions” before the

smoke started billowing into the

air.

Fire crews extinguished the

blaze and then police and fire

investigators started to determine

a cause.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark

Worner said the cause of the fire

was accidental.

He said the man had been living

in the garage, surrounded by

his father’s possessions, who had

recently died.

After the fire the victim left the

property and went to a nearby

address on Hobson St where an

ambulance was called and he

was taken to hospital in a critical

condition.

Good reason to follow tradition

• By Bridget Rutherford

EMMA YATES’ grandmother

used to paint her initials on the

bottom of her crockery collection

in nail varnish so she could keep

track of it.

Lerline Morris lost her battle

to breast cancer aged just 57, and

now Ms Yates has her collection,

and adds new items to it.

As a tribute, she will use it in

her Pink Ribbon afternoon tea

on May 21 to raise money and

awareness for the Breast Cancer

Foundation New Zealand.

The one thing that’s special

to me is that the china has her

initials on the bottom that she’s

done in nail varnish.”

Mrs Morris painted her initials

so when she took it to her

women’s division functions, she

would know they were hers, Ms

Yates said.

Ms Yates, now 39, had two

fibroadenoma lumps removed

when she was 29 and 31, and goes

for a check up every year now.

She said it was so important for

women of any age to be aware of

the breast cancer symptoms and

to get checked.

“I think a lot of people think it

will never happen to them.”

She said she was “very lucky”.

Last year she hosted a breakfast

with a friend – but this year

would be her first individual

event.

She chose to do an afternoon

tea because it was more in line

with her business The Traveling

Tea Party.

“It’s a good idea to get a bunch

of girlfriends or colleagues

together to have a fun event that

also supports a good cause.”

Pink Ribbon events will run

throughout May.

More than 3000 Kiwis are

diagnosed with breast cancer

a year, with 600 dying of the

disease.

Proceeds from the events

will go towards breast cancer

research, and help provide

awareness education and support

for patients.

Last year’s Pink Ribbon events

raised $1.7 million.

Treatment

could speed

breast cancer

recovery

• By Gabrielle Stuart

UP TO 251 Christchurch women

could benefit from a new breast

cancer treatment being considered,

a study has found.

New technology allows radiotherapy

to be done during breast

cancer surgery, rather than being

drawn out over several weeks.

It means patients can be treated

and recover faster.

It is already being used in a private

clinic in Auckland, and several

groups have been campaigning

to have it publicly funded.

The study was commissioned by

the Ministry of Health to look at

the cost of funding the treatment,

and estimate the demand for it.

It estimated about 461 women

across New Zealand would use

the treatment, but it could vary

between 80 and 1505.

That included between 14 and

251 women in Christchurch.

It estimated the cost of investing

in the treatment would be between

$3.72 million and $4.72 million,

but it could also save significant

amounts over 10 years by reducing

the amount of time it took to treat

women.

Pensioners still fighting over fence

.kiwi

Thursday May 4 2017

• By Sarla Donovan

THE STOUSH over a fence in

a Burwood retirement village

looks set to continue.

Retirees at the Sanctuary

Villas, Burwood had been

facing off for six years over a

humble trellis and wooden

fence.

Patsy Clegg had the fence

built outside her property,

upsetting neighbours Kathleen

and Glyn Hardy.

The fence borders a private

access road used by residents

and the Hardys claimed it was

illegal and dangerous.

Mrs Clegg has now agreed

to shift the fence back from

the road kerbing, but wants

the Hardys to sign off on the

plan before starting any

work.

“I don’t want the Hardys

having another go at me. I’ve

got no faith that they’re not

going to.”

But Kathleen Hardy told

The Star until the fence went

back to where it was when they

moved into Sanctuary Villas

in 2011, they won’t be signing

anything.

“We can’t properly judge

what it will be like (from a

drawing).”

STILL FIGHTING: Sanctuary

Villas retirees Kathleen and

Glyn Hardy are refusing to

sign off on their neighbour’s

plan to shift a fence they say

is dangerous.

She had legal advice that if

the Hardy’s signed approval

for the fence alteration and it

didn’t end up going where they

thought it would, “we’ve got no

Youth ask for

police racial

bias committee

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A GROUP of Christchurch

Pasifika youth are

campaigning for a police

racial bias committee to

be set up to investigate

allegations of police

discrimination.

About 250 young people

gathered in Christchurch

last week for the Pacific

Youth Leadership and

Transformation Council,

to discuss issues in the

community and potential

solutions.

PYLAT chairman Josiah

Tualamali’i said many

shared stories of situations

where they believed they

were unfairly treated or

discriminated against by

police because of their

race.

Most did not report it,

because they did not feel

they would be taken seriously,

he said.

“Why is it a lot of Maori

and Pasifika talk about the

police like they have to be

fearful of something, when

others of different ethnicities

don’t seem to have that

anxiety?” he said.

“I have been pulled

over a few times, not for

anything I’ve done wrong,

but when I’m driving a car

which has five or six Pacific

young people in it. We

immediately get a bit nervous,

we sit up straighter,

we are more articulate

with what we’re saying,

because we’re trying not

to give them any reason to

detain us.”

Pasifika law student

Anatea Prince, who helped

draw up the recommendations,

said a lot of people

told stories at the forum

about their personal interactions

with police.

She said many did not

know about the Independent

Police Conduct

Authority or how to make

a complaint.

Canterbury Maori,

Pacific and Ethnic Affairs

district manager Inspector

Hirone Waretini said he

could not comment on

specific cases when a complaint

had not been made.

But he said he was open

to speaking with the

young people directly to

discuss the issues.

Valuing diversity was

one of the core values of

NZ Police, he said.

“Our communities

are diverse, with an

ever-changing population.

These changes create a

responsibility on police

to encourage and grow

the diversity and cultural

competency of our staff, to

ensure we are responsive

to the communities we

serve,” he said.

The police already had

liaison officers working

with different ethnic communities,

an emphasis on

diversity in recruitment

campaigns, and training

for recruits in how to communicate

and interact with

diverse communities, he

Policing changes PYLAT youth asked for:

•Consistent diversity hiring practices to increase

Pasifika representation within police

•Compulsory cultural awareness and

engagement training for all police officers and

staff

•A racial bias committee established, co-led by

the Police, Pasifika, and Māori Leaders, to keep

police accountable and transparent, and review

arrests and prosecutions

Aranui’s changing

attitude to police

Six months ago, the Aranui Neighbourhood Policing

Team was set up to try to combat crime and distrust of

police in the community. Reporter Gabrielle Stuart visited

Aranui to ask residents how the police were doing

SITTING ON her front doorstep,

Denise sees a lot of what goes on in

Aranui.

Wrapped in her dressing gown

for warmth, coffee beside her, her

view on Friday was peaceful – a

Park, workmen busy on the sports

field, and neighbours wandering

past heading to the library or community

centre.

But it wasn’t always like that.

She also sees vandalism, fights,

and plenty of blue and red flashing

lights. She regularly hears young

people screaming and fighting late

at night in the park.

Building relationships with the people

•From page 13

Two weeks ago, a policeman

knocked on her door.

After 35 years living in the

community, she had learnt that

usually meant nothing good – a

search for someone, a crime

committed, or a tragedy in the

neighbourhood.

But this was different. She

said the policeman was friendly,

introduced himself and asked

about her thoughts on the neighbourhood

and what the police

could do better in it.

She said the relationship with

police had been rocky for a long

time in Aranui, but she hoped

that would change.

“It’s good to have them around,

for our youth. And they’re doing

really well, you’ve got to hand it

to them,” she said.

The Star spoke to residents

around the park, and all but

one had spoken directly with

someone from the policing team.

Almost all the comments were

positive.

Some had played a community

v police rugby game – where

the police were apparently thoroughly

thrashed, but earnt a lot

of respect anyway.

The policing team manned

the barbecue at local events, and

walked local children to school in

the mornings.

They also patrol differently –

they now ride around the community

on cycles, instead of in

cars, to appear less threatening.

Policing team leader Sergeant

Toni Carroll said they were trying

to do things differently.

“We’re trying to get rid of that

perception that if they see police

it’s a bad thing,” she said.

By the numbers, the results are

not looking good.

The crime rate in Aranui has

risen over the months the team

has been working.

In the first three months of

this year, there were 73 crimes in

Aranui reported to the police, up

from 58 at the same time the year

before.

But Sergeant Carroll said this

was expected.

Because they were building

more trust in police, more people

would feel confident in reporting

crimes, she said.

“When we were surveying

around Wainoni Park, people

were telling us teens were often

misusing the park, yelling and

screaming at all hours and breaking

glass. We said: ‘Did you ring

the police?’ None of them had.

But the next weekend we got four

calls about disorder at the park,”

she said.

She said the teenagers had

scattered by the time a police car

arrived.

But the policing team was still

able to make sure the glass was

cleaned up, and was working

with the city council to improve

lighting and trim bushes where it

was happening, she said.

Of the crimes recorded this

year, 43 were burglaries, and 10

thefts. Seven were assaults, and

COMMUNITY: A-Town Boxing

Gym owner Jamie Roberts,

pictured with his boxing

“family”, said the new policing

team had treated them with

respect. Left – Constables

Brad Hagerty, Jules Atkinson

and Pete Evans patrol the

streets of Aranui on cycles,

in an effort to be more

approachable.

13 were illegal use of a motor

vehicle.

Rather than decide themselves

what issues to focus on, the policing

team has been surveying residents,

asking what was important

to them.

Sergeant Carroll said they had

visited about 1400 homes so far,

about 90 per cent of the houses in

the area.

Common issues had emerged.

Many residents were worried

about the young people hanging

out in groups at the shops or the

park and getting into trouble,

and hoped the police could get

alongside them, she said.

While they are trying to build

a positive relationship with the

community, she said it would not

stop them coming down hard on

crime.

But helping someone who had

committed a crime turn their life

around could be easier when they

already had a good relationship

with police, she said.

“We don’t want to ruin their

lives by arresting them. We want

to stop them offending, so they

have better opportunities as they

grow older,” she said.

A-Town Boxing Gym owner

Jamie Roberts described himself

as “a little bit rough around the

edges”, with most interactions

with police in his past on the

wrong side of the law.

But he said the police had

treated him with respect, even

working alongside him on a new

project in schools, teaching children

control, responsibility and

respect through boxing skills.

He said people in Aranui were

suspicious of newcomers, and it

had taken him more than a year

to be accepted when he moved to

the community about 20 years

ago.

But the police had already won

over many people, he said.

They’re not coming out and

asking for our names and date of

birth. Instead they’re asking our

names and how they can help,”

he said.

Mr Roberts bumped into one

of the officers on the team picking

up rubbish in the park one

morning.

He was also impressed by the

reaction he saw police officers

receive at Haeata school recently.

The kids were coming up

and saying morning officer, and

shaking their hands. It was pretty

cool,” he said.

Sergeant Carroll said the local

children had been quiet and

reserved around the team at the

beginning, but over time they

were warming.

There are still some hard core

ones who won’t say hi, but you

can tell that even they want to,

now. We’ll keep going until they

say hi,” she said.

Can Wagner rise to

the challenge?

.kiwi

Thursday May 4 2017

New rebuild boss Nicky

Wagner has been dubbed

the “personable politician”.

But has she got the goods

to finish the job that Gerry

Brownlee started? Bridget

Rutherford reports

IT WOULD be hard to find two more

different political personalities.

Within minutes of speaking to

National Christchurch Central MP

Nicky Wagner (right), you know she’s a

glass-half-full kind of person.

The former schoolteacher turned

businesswoman and Environment

Canterbury councillor, is popular

and personable with her “grass roots”

attitude to politics.

She clawed her way to win the

Christchurch Central seat in 2011,

through hard yakka, and pounding the

pavements.

Christchurch’s future clearly excites her.

Former rebuild boss and now Foreign

Affairs Minister Gerry Brownlee, on

the other hand, was a different type of

politician.

He’s not afraid to be critical – and then

sometimes having to apologise.

Infamously, he called former Mayor Bob

Parker a “clown.” He later phoned Parker

to mend fences.

He said in 2012 some landowners

after the earthquake

were “carping and moaning”

about their situation.

During his six-year tenure

Gerry

Brownlee

overseeing the city’s rebuild,

he’s been accused of not

communicating and failing

to listen. But many say he had a role too

big for one person.

It’s been more than a week since Prime

Minister Bill English announced Mrs

Wagner would take over Mr Brownlee’s

role as Minister Supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration.

Already she’s copped flak. Critics say

at number 22 on National’s list, she will

be powerless because she is not a Cabinet

Minister, and therefore the Government

was walking away from Christchurch.

Former mayor Garry Moore said Mrs

Wagner had been given a “poisoned chalice”

because everything was in place.

“Being outside Cabinet will mean Wagner

will have to sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall

outside the Cabinet meeting room hoping

that she will be able to influence the way

things are being managed in Christchurch.

“Cabinet decisions will be passed out the

door to her as a recipient, just like most of

us in Christchurch have experienced for

years.”

By comparison Labour MP Megan

Woods, who has the Christchurch issues

portfolio, is number five on her party’s list.

But Mrs Wagner said whenever a decision

about Christchurch was made in

Cabinet, she would be there.

It also meant she would have an extra

day each week to be in Christchurch, she

said.

But Canterbury University political science

associate professor Bronwyn Hayward

said Mrs Wagner would have more

resources and support if she was a Cabinet

Minister.

“I think it is a concern that the Government

does not see the need to sustain the

focus on Christchurch or why even they

‘Being outside Cabinet will mean Nicky Wagner will have to

sit, Lazarus-like, in the hall outside the Cabinet meeting room

hoping that she will be able to influence the way things are

being managed in Christchurch.’ – Garry Moore, former mayor

need MPs like Wagner in their inner circle.”

She said Mr Brownlee was not the “right

personality” for the city and Mrs Wagner

had the ability to restore relationships –

but it might be too late.

“He [Brownlee]. . . tended to work with

a fairly narrow community of loyal supporters

and similar interests.”

She said Mr Brownlee had a large workload,

and perhaps was asked to perform

the role for too long.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

He was a “polarising figure” who exacerbated

anger and frustration, she said.

In comparison, Mrs Wagner was popular

and personable, she said.

Mrs Wagner said she wants to keep the

ball rolling, and build on the “tough” decisions

Mr Brownlee had made and “copped

flack” for, including the residential red

zone’s future.

Labour’s earthquake recovery spokeswoman

Megan Woods said she had “grave

concerns” that Canterbury was slipping

down the Government’s priority agenda.

“Canterbury doesn’t have a place at the

table when decisions are being made.”

Mrs Wagner said the city was in a great

position compared to 15 years ago where

you could “shoot a gun down Cashel Mall

at 11am” some days.

“Who would have believed down the track

we’re in such a strong position?”

She said following the February 22,

2011, earthquake, their original expectations

on how quickly the rebuild could

happen were not realistic.

“That was the biggest challenge.

“We’ve got the momentum going in the

right direction.”

Viewpoint

Canterbury spirit shines

THE NATION watched in shock

at the events that unfolded in

Canterbury in 2010 and 2011,

changing the region forever.

Hundreds of central city

buildings needed to be demolished,

regional landmarks were

destroyed, thousands of homes

suffered earthquake damage, the

level of land damage was unprecedented

and the future seemed

uncertain.

For more than six years I’ve

held the role of overseeing the

region’s earthquake recovery.

Rebuilding Christchurch been

an enormous undertaking for all

those involved but we’ve managed

to stave off the gloomy predictions

about population flight,

high unemployment and the

collapse of the regional economy.

I’ve been genuinely humbled at

the strength and determination

of Canterbury – homeowners,

business owners, investors, developers,

families and communities

alike.

While I’ve never been a fan

of the word ‘resilient’, it does

describe the spirit of our beautiful

region, which I’m proud to

call home.

Since late 2010, I’ve worked

with countless people from

around the country and overseas

who have all shared the same

vision; that Canterbury will build

back better than it was before.

There’s been the odd disagreement

along the way – many of

them publicly documented – but

that’s par for the course.

Gerry Brownlee

I want to thank every single

person who has backed Canterbury’s

recovery. Every single person

who chose to stay and work

in the region, every single person

who chose to open a new business

or build a new building and

every single person who chose to

study here – you are why our city

is more vibrant and prosperous

than ever before.

Canterbury is in a strong

position and I have no doubt

my colleague Nicky Wagner will

continue the good work that is

already happening in and around

the city.

While my ministerial attention

will now have a more global

focus in the Foreign Affairs portfolio,

I remain committed to the

Ilam electorate as their local MP

and to Christchurch as my home.

Sean Mortell – Personally,

depending on their integrity, I’d

like to see them adopted/enveloped

into a new structure. Maybe

bridge abutments for the new

east/west footbridge going over

the Avon River near the town hall.

Down by the river it would be

hard to tag.

Lorraine Isaacs – I would

not want to see something that

caused so much suffering. The

Kate Valley landfill would be a

good place to put it.

Aroha Jackson – Put it with

the rest of the rubble being used

to extend around our port.

Des Wesley – Canterbury

Museum, where they will be

looked after and safe from vandalism

Melanie Whitworth – It

should be displayed somewhere

very safe. Away from taggers.

Andrea Haylings – Inside

a building so uneducated troglodytes

who think horrible parts

of history should be ignored and

people can’t deface them.

Job not finished in city

THIS WEEK, Canterbury has

a new Minister responsible for

overseeing the regeneration and

recovery of our city. I wish Nicky

Wagner well in this important

role.

Although it is fair to say Gerry

Brownlee and I have not always

seen eye to eye, I would like

to acknowledge his service to

Christchurch at one of the hardest

points in our history, and wish

him well for the new challenges as

Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Coming up to seven years on

there is still so much to be done

in our city. The anchor projects

continue to be slow and messy.

Timelines around completion of

the convention centre and the

fully completed East Frame are

about as clear as mud. Instead of

providing certainty to stimulate

activity in the CBD, these projects

are weighing down the city.

My concern is that in allocating

the portfolio to a Minister outside

Cabinet is a sure sign that Canterbury

is slipping down the list

of priorities for National. We’ve

seen this attitude developing for

some time now but last week’s

announcement is confirmation of

a downgrading.

The Government argues that

the absence of a Minister at

the decision-making Cabinet

table who will fight Canterbury’s

corner is no big deal. I disagree.

I want to know that every time

health funding, especially mental

health funding, is discussed that

someone is thumping the table

and telling Ministers about how

bad it is down here.

I want someone there who will

share the examples of our new

entrants starting school with

arguing for much needed

additional mental health support

down here.

The job in Canterbury is

nowhere near finished. There’s

buildings, roads and infrastructure

to complete but also the

critical job of ensuring that our

people are also recovering and

regenerating.

The test of leadership for the

new Minister is to be a staunch

advocate for us on these issues

and reminding her colleagues

this region is still a priority.

Labour is committed seeing the

job through with Canterbury. We

know the job is far from done and

our region will be a priority for a

Labour government.

More to Rarotonga than the beaches

.kiwi

Thursday May 4 2017

• By Mike Yardley

PLANNING an escape to

Rarotonga?

Tear yourself away from the

beach to dig a little deeper at the

roots of the island. Venture along

the back road and enter a timeless

world of free-range harmony in

abundance.

On my various forays along the

back road, I feasted on freshlyplucked

pawpaw, mango, guava,

bananas and star-fruit, bursting

from the roadside trees.

Scenically insatiable, I marvelled

at the colourfully-painted

hinterland homes and the dense

plantations, bracketed by Rarotonga’s

serrated peaks which

exude a Jurassic Park aura.

There are many ways to get

a flavour for Rarotonga’s vast

green heart, including taking a

ride with the recently launched

Tik-e Tours. These tropical

three-wheeler luxury tuk-tuk

limousines are fully electric, so

unlike the racket they make on

the streets of Bangkok, these

beauties will glide you around

Rarotonga’s ravishing interior in

virtual silence.

My driver/guide was a worldly

elder called Mata, a natural and

charismatic raconteur. Throughout

my tour, every passer-by

warmly waved out to Mata, or

stopped to chat. One chap we

talked to was busy cultivating

noni fruit by hand.

Lauded by locals for centuries

for its numerous health benefits,

noni juice has taken the world by

storm and is the Cook Islands’

No 1 agricultural export product.

My two-hour tour traversed a

slew of insights, including stops

at ancient marae sites, a rendezvous

with Government House,

the magnificently carved new

war memorial in honour of the

500 local soldiers who fought in

World War 1, Tinomana Palace

and the sacred Great Migration

site of Avana Passage.

Operating for just over a year,

the people behind Tik-e Tours

are Cook Islander Tania Farman

and her husband, Karl, who

have swapped corporate life in

Auckland for the Rarotongan

lifestyle, while injecting an

innovative and eco-friendly

tourism product into the mix.

cross between a kart and a beach

buggy, highly manoeuvrable and

hardy.

They’re even kitted out with roll

cages if it all goes badly wrong.

These wildly popular buggy

tours have been making quite a

splash for two years. Our conga

line of yellow buggies looked

like a slithering giant snake. The

biggest mud pits awaited us at the

site of ill-fated and abandoned

Sheraton Hotel development,

where the grounds have been

reworked as an off-road buggy

track, which is where I got utterly

splattered in mud, as we ripped

up and down the mounds of the

track.

Our touring route also romped

into the hinterland and the

Swathed in jungle-like tropical

foliage, the environmentallyfriendly

embrace of Ikurangi Eco-

Retreat is a winning new roost in

Rarotonga.

Established by Luana and Matt

Scowcroft last year, this thoughtfully

created offering treads a very

light footprint. You’ll notice the

sustainability elements wherever

you turn.

The toilets are self-composting,

the beautiful toiletries by Ashley

& Co are studiously organic, the

natural and biodegradable cleaning

products, a sustainable waste

management system, all materials

are sustainably sourced and

there’s free use of bicycles to go

exploring.

Being uber-boutique, the experience

is absolutely distinctive,

personalised and ultra-attentive.

Luana says: “We think of it as a

unique combination of the allure

of a safari with the romance of the

RESPECT: Rarotonga’s new war memorial in

honour of soldiers who fought in World War 1.

South Seas, where luxury meets

sustainability.”

I loved sleeping in my luxury

safari tent, stunningly furnished,

and perched on a deck to allow

airflow.

A tropical breakfast was

delivered to my deck each

morning and I adored the

locally-roasted, fair trade plunger

coffee.

I awoke each morning to the

“Tail of the Sky,” Mt Ikurangi,

gilded in the glow of the rising

Rarotongan sun, and I revelled

in the novelty of showering in

the open-air bathroom, flanked

by swaying palms and bountiful

banana trees.

FAST FACTS

•Set amid the bountiful

hinterland beauty, but just

minutes from the beach,

Ikurangi Eco-Resort is a

masterclass in sustainable

hospitality in paradise. Five

per cent of Ikurangi Eco

Retreat profits go to local

conservation initiatives.

www.ikurangi.com

I do love how Rarotonga

is replete with colourful

roadside stalls brimming

with freshly picked produce

and alluring treats, like

organic fruit ice cream.

They directly help villagers

supplement their incomes.

It’s a great way to give back.

Gardening

Beautiful broad beans

• By Henri Ham

I KNOW it’s easy and not

too expensive to buy broad

beans at the supermarket,

but I enjoy eating them

fresh from the garden.

They taste great and it’s

nice knowing exactly what’s

taken place during the

growing process.

Broad beans are one of

my favourite varieties to

grow.

Like most other vegetables,

you can grow broad

beans from seed (actually

it’s the bean itself). But I

recommend growing from

seedlings.

Doing this shortens the

time before harvest (around

six less weeks) but, more

importantly, takes out a

lot of the hard work. Once

the root systems are well

formed (yet still separate

from each other), almost

guaranteed they will grow

well.

Once you’ve got your

seedlings, you need to find

somewhere to grow them.

I like to grow mine in a

raised vegetable garden,

but they also grow well in

FRESH: Broad beans like

full sun or just partial

shade.

pots. Make sure it’s full sun

or partial shade where you

plant.

Broad beans are pollinated

by bees, so it’s helpful

to grow them near a beefriendly

plant like lavender,

rosemary or cornflowers.

It pays to check the pH

level of your soil. Broad

beans like the soil to be

around 5.5 to 6.5pH.

Not sure what the pH

level of your soil is? Most

garden centres sell kits,

alternatively there are also

companies which will test

your soil for a small fee.

If the pH level of your soil

could go higher, try adding

a little bit of lime from

your local garden centre. If

you’re not sure of the pH

level, it wouldn’t hurt to add

a little bit of lime anyway.

Then simply dig a little

hole and plant each seedling

around 15cm apart in

rows approximately 30cm

apart.

Once the plants are

around 1m you can stake

them individually but I prefer

to put a stake at either

end of the rows and loop a

big piece of string around

the whole lot to keep them

growing together. Your

plants will lean against each

other and grow across the

ground.

The seedlings will take

around eight to 12 weeks

from planting to produce

beans ready for harvesting.

Harvest the beans when

the pods are around 75-

100mm.

Blueberries

If you love to pick and eat fresh,

have you tried growing your own

blueberries? We have all heard of

blueberries, but what a lot of us do

not know is that they are easy to grow.

Blueberries are a wonder food and

are a fantastic addition to the garden

whether you grow them as specimen

plants in containers, or as a low hedge.

Blueberries like soil which is slightly acidic

with plenty of nitrogen. A slow-release

fertiliser, such as Oderings Total Replenish

in spring before the new growth appears

is ideal. You may not realise this, but some

blueberry varieties can be killed if there

is too much calcium present in the soil,

therefore avoid lime fertiliser and gypsum.

Water is vital for the full development of

your berries, which swell rapidly in the

last two weeks of ripening. Lack of

water can mean a poor crop and dark,

undersized berries.

While blueberries are resistant to most

diseases, it is prudent to spray to prevent

mildew and cover them to protect the

ripening berries from birds. The plants

are hardy to minus four degrees, although

frost will damage flowers. They can

also suffer from iron and magnesium

deficiencies. If your plant leaves are

a reddish-yellow colour, especially near

the edges it is most likely a magnesium

deficiency and if the leaves turn yellow

with green veins it is most likely an

iron deficiency.

Knowing how to prune blueberries is

important, because fruit is borne on last

season’s wood and the most vigorous

wood bears the largest fruit. The flower

buds that will produce next year’s crop

develop on the outer part of this year’s

growth in late summer as stems mature.

Minimum pruning consists of the removal

of dead or damaged wood, any weak

growth or twiggy old branches. Remove

some of the oldest branches after four to

five years to encourage new growth. While

light pruning is possible year around,

winter is the best time for heavy pruning.

Theatre/Arts

A cappella group on road to stardom

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CITY COUPLE Malia and Julian

Hay have never been afraid to

take risks.

It was just over a year ago

they delved into the unknown,

setting up the city’s first ever

vocal academy specialising in

contemporary a cappella singing

– Voices Co.

The endeavour has proven to

be successful for the Linwood

pair who have produced more

than 20 songs, had about 50

come through their school and

have three established squads.

So when Television New

Zealand began the hunt to find

the country’s top a cappella

singing group the couple decided

to enter their top performance

squad in the new show The

Naked Choir.

The ensemble made up of Mr

and Mrs Hay, Liam Dacombe,

Jasmine Salam and Anneliese

Veronese was one of eight voice

groups to be selected to compete

on the reality show hosted by

singer Jeff Hunkin.

Already the group has made

an impact singing their own

version of singer-songwriter Sia’s

The Greatest, making it past the

first stage of the competition on

Sunday.

The first week we didn’t know

anything about the groups we

were competing with . . . we sort

of had no idea if we were the

only group doing contemporary

against maybe four different

choirs,” Mrs Hay said.

Expecting to be assigned

a specific song for their first

challenge, the groups were

thrown a “curve ball” having

to choose their own song and

arrange it in two weeks.

Mrs Hay said the first challenge

was “agonising” with the

group needing to choose a song

that showcased their best skills

and what contemporary a cappella

is all about.

Having first met at the

Christchurch Schools’ Music

Festival when the couple was 10,

Mrs Hay said the city’s music

scene has been a huge part on

their life.

“Earthquakes aside it is very

special to be representing our

city. But a city that has had a lot

of change and really had to pick

itself up creatively,” she said.

Aiming to take the title for the

country’s best a cappella group is

not all the Hays have on the go,

with plans to take their academy

into high schools later this year.

ON THE TELLY:

Voices Co have

successfully

entered their top

performance

squad in

the national

television show

The Naked

Choir. (From

left) - Julian Hay,

Jasmine Salam,

Liam Dacombe,

Anneliese

Veronese and

Malia Hay. ​

The academy will offer schools

master classes and will look to

perform at schools to inspire

students to study music.

Plans are also in the making

for the academy to run a

workshop conference over the

summer holidays for singers and

people wanting to start up their

own tutor groups.

Mrs Hay said she wants the

academy to contribute to the

city’s music economy and help

singers get paid work.

“I certainly don’t think musicians

work any less hard than

any other profession its just it

is hard to get started and that is

what we are passionate about,”

she said.

But she said the academy is

also aiming to make contemporary

a cappella accessible to

everyone who wants to give the

style a go.

The Naked Choir airs on

Sunday, 8.30pm, TV One.

Voices Co appear again on

May 14.

Singer bares his soul in musical comedy

A CITY-BASED singer,

songwriter, entertainer and

massage therapist will bare his

soul at the upcoming Cavell

Leitch International Jazz and

Blues Festival.

Gary Starlight, also known as

Jeff Clark (right) is set to perform

a three-night season of musical

comedy show as part of the festival

to be held at Orange Studios

in Woolston.

Jeff Clark is a veteran improviser

who performs with

The Court Jesters and has been

involved in The Court Theatre’s

Scared Scriptless since 1996.

Clark describes his alter ego

Gary Starlight as a cross between

John Rowles, Elvis, Michael

Buble and Pepe Le Pew.

As part of the show “Gary

Starlight” will recount the worst

year of his life and sing the songs

he wrote following each event.

The one-hour show will be

filled with original songs produced

“out of thin air” inspired

only by Clark’s interactions with

the audience.

The character “Gary Starlight “

first emerged as a wedding singer

in The Court Jesters’ ensemble

improvisation show The Early

Early Late Show in 2012.

Since then several shows have

been created by Clark with

The Gary Starlight Christmas

Special at The Court Theatre in

2013 and An Evening With Gary

Starlight with the Nelson Fringe

Festival last year.

Clark will be accompanied by

pianist Kris Finnerty and guitarist/bass

player Brad Kang.

•Clark will perform at the

Orange Studios on May

25,26 and 27. For more information

Mazda NZ launches

new-generation CX-5

• By Ross Kiddie

THE latest-generation

CX-5 sport utility vehicle

has been launched by

Mazda New Zealand.

The CX-5 arrives here in

three specification levels

and is priced from $39,995

to $57,495. There are also

three engine options including

one diesel.

Mazda New Zealand’s

managing director David

Hodge said the new CX-5

will further enhance the

company’s position as

market leader in the SUV

segment in New Zealand.

The new CX-5 delivers

on so many fronts. From its

stunning looks through to

ride and performance, it’s

the type of vehicle that once

you get behind the wheel

you just want to keep on

driving.”

Mazda’s continual focus

on enhancing Jinba Ittai

– the connection between

car and driver – has seen a

number of enhancements

that will further improve

the performance and

handling of the new CX-5

while at the same time delivering

class-leading safety.

The SkyActiv engine lineup

of 2-litre and 2.5-litre

petrol and 2.2-litre diesel all

deliver responsive performance.

All CX-5 models come

equipped with SkyActiv-

Drive transmission. For

petrol models this means

the transmission now incorporates

a new shift logic

that predicts the driver’s

intentions based on vehicle

speed, throttle position,

engine speed and other

factors to achieve smoother

vehicle behaviour.

In the diesel, the transmission

includes a low

rigidity lock-up damper

to enhance quietness and

to deliver improved fuel

economy.

The CX-5 features

G-Vectoring Control as

standard across all models.

The GVC system, unique

to Mazda, provides unified

MAZDA CX-5: Choice of three engines, two petrol

and one diesel.

control over chassis and

steering systems that results

in improved handling and

ride quality.

An indication of the

commitment Mazda

engineers have to

delivering superior ride and

handling can be seen in the

company’s i-Activ AWD

system that is standard on

2.5-litre and diesel models.

Featuring 27 sensors, it

monitors environmental

and vehicle conditions at

a computation rate of 200

times per second to predict

traction requirements

before wheel slip occurs.

The suspension system

on the new CX-5 has been

re-tuned to improve ride

comfort while the body’s

torsional rigidity has

increased by approximately

15.5 per cent to boost driving

performance.

Mr Hodge said while

delivering an outstanding

driving and ride experience

is important, you also need

TECHNOLOGY: The CX-5’s exterior has been

designed to keep noise levels low.

to give the driver and passengers

the peace of mind

that they are riding in a

vehicle where their safety is

paramount.

“Mazda prides itself on

the investment and time

it makes to ensure all its

vehicles feature the very

latest in safety technology.

The new CX-5 is a great

example of this with its

vast array of i-Activsense

technologies and improved

passive safety features,’’ Mr

Hodge said.

Technologies include

advanced smart city brake

support – forward which

is standard across the

range, blind spot monitoring

and traffic sign recognition

on GSX and Limited

grades, Limited models

also feature lane departure

warning and driver attention

alert.

All models feature secondary

collision reduction,

which automatically applies

the brakes after a primary

collision thereby minimising

the risk of a secondary

collision.

Every new CX-5

comes with mazdacare.

It comprises a Mazda

genuine factory warranty

and Mazda on call

roadside assistance for

a five-year, unlimited

kilometre period and

genuine Mazda servicing

for three years/100,000km

(whichever occurs first) at

no extra cost.

In Brief

BASKETBALLERS NAMED

Two Canterbury players have

been named in the New Zealand

under-16 basketball team to

play at the Australia Junior

Championships. They are

Samuel Jenkins (St Andrew’s

College) and Okirano Tilaia

(Cashmere High School). The

New Zealand team will go into

a three-day camp later this

month before heading to across

the Tasman for the tournament

which will be played from June

8-15.

POWER ON: Matt Summerfield has driven his way into second in the NZRC following his win in Whangerei.

Summerfield set for home rally

• By Gordon Findlater

MATT Summerfield will go

into next month’s Canterbury

Rally in the hunt for the New

Zealand Rally Championship

after a spirited drive in

Whangarei.

Summerfield and sister

Nicole (co-driver) now find

themselves second in the

championship after they

stormed to victory in the NZRC

at the International Rally of

Whangarei.

The result comes after he

suffered gearbox failure just

three kilometres into the

opening stage at the opening

round of the championship in

Otago last month.

“I’m ecstatic. We need to build

on it from here but it’s a good

feeling going into Canterbury, it

feels like we’re back in the fight,”

said Summerfield.

Saturday saw Summerfield

put in a calculated drive. He

finished within the top four

on each stage, recording just a

single stage victory on the power

stage to capture an extra five

championship points.

The drive meant he held an

overnight lead of 29.3sec over

Dylan Turner in his Audi S1

AP4.

Not everything went to plan

for the Summerfield team,

with an exhaust manifold

requiring replacement in Sunday

morning’s 15min service.

The job took the team 20min

resulting in a 50sec penalty,

which saw Turner take the l

ead.

However, blistering pace from

Summerfield saw him win three

of the day’s six stages, eventually

cruising to victory 1min 6.4sec

ahead of Turner.

“It sucked to drop 50sec in

penalties but we would have lost

minutes if we didn’t do it,” said

Summerfield.

Summerfield is more than

overdue for a positive result at

his home event on June 4.

He won the Canterbury Rally

in 2012 but has had no luck

since, failing to finish in his

last four attempts. He crashed

in 2013, blew an engine in

2014, crashed in 2015 and blew

another engine in 2016.

“Everyone said last year

that is was done because bad

things come in threes. I’m well

overdue,” he said.

NZRC standings:

Graham Featherstone 51pts,

1; Matt Summerfield 49pts, 2;

Dylan Turner 47pts, 3; Rhys

Gardner 46pts, 4; David Holder

41pts, 5; Andrew Hawkeswood

40pts, 6.

League boys come good in rugby

• By Gordon Findlater

A GROUP of league boys

playing union are looking to

prove they can be the surprise

team in the UC Championship.

The St Thomas of Canterbury

College first XV started the Crusaders

region secondary school

competition with an emphatic

64-5 win over Burnside High

School. The interesting thing

about the team is if you asked a

large chunk of them which sport

they play the answer would be

‘rugby league’.

Zinzan Martin and Patrick

Elia both scored hat-tricks for

St Thomas’ on Saturday. The

previous weekend both attended

a South Island rugby league

camp.

More than a half a dozen

of the St Thomas’ team have

played representative rugby

league for Canterbury or the

South Island.

St Thomas’ have also followed

the trend of bringing in a recognised

name in the coaching

department, former Canterbury

and Crusaders flanker Johnny

Leo’o.

On Saturday, they take on

last year’s round-robin winners

Christ’s College. The match will

act as a great gauge for what the

team is capable of.

“I don’t think we’d call it an

upset if we get the win. It’s not

daunting for us going to Christ’s,

we’ve got a lot of talent,’’ defence

coach Hamish Barclay said.

The league connection at St

Thomas’ isn’t just restricted to

its players. Canterbury Bulls and

Linwood Keas coach Andrew

Auimatagi is a teacher at the

school.

“We want your league boys to

have the best opportunity they

can and playing first XV rugby

seems to be the pinnacle in

Canterbury,” said Auimatagi.

The school may also have of

the most exciting players in

the competition in the form of

17-year-old centre Jordan Riki.

The former Christchurch Boys’

High School student was named

the under-16 player of the year at

the New Zealand Rugby League

awards in January and is part

of the Brisbane Broncos youth

system.

St Thomas’ may have been

easy beats in the past, but if their

LEADERS TO CLASH

Coastal Spirit and Ferrymead

clash in the Mainland

Premier League at Cuthberts

Green on Saturday. Bays lead the

competition after eight rounds

and are on 21 points, three

ahead of Cashmere Technical

and four ahead of Coastal. The

two teams previously met on

March 25, with Bays defeating

Coastal 1-0 at Ferrymead Park.

TIGERS PLAYERS FOR TEST

Papanui Tigers duo Bunty

Whiley will make their Kiwi

Ferns debuts in tomorrow’s

women’s team coach Michael

as the assistant coach of the

Kiwi Ferns. Kuruwaka-Crowe

and Whiley are believed to

be the first Canterbury-based

Kiwi Ferns reps since another

Papanui product, Alisha Moses,

who earned her first call-up as

a teenager for the 2008 World

Cup.

DEFENDER HOPEFUL

Coastal Spirit defender

Shaun Liddicoat is the only

Christchurch-based player

named in the 30-man New

Zealand squad ahead of the

Under-20 Football World Cup

in Korea later this month.

The University of Canterbury

engineering student is currently

in camp with the team in

Auckland with the hope of

making the final 21-man squad

for the tournament, which

is named on Monday. New

Zealand will play Vietnam,

Honduras and France in their

pool.

KART OPPORTUNITY

Eleven-year-old Jacob Douglas

will head to Italy in October to

take on the world’s best young

kart drivers, representing New

Zealand at the International

ROK Cup Finals. The Medbury

School student booked his spot

after winning the Vortex Mini

ROK title at the KartSport New

Zealand National Sprint Championships

in Invercargill last

month. In Italy he will drive for

the OTK kart group whose previous

drivers include seven-time

Michael Schumacher.

Mauger vying for top job at Highlanders

.kiwi

• By Steve Hepburn

NEW HIGHLANDERS assistant

coach and former Crusader Aaron

Mauger will be one of a cast of

three all vying for the top job.

Mauger, 36, was announced

on Monday as the new assistant

coach for the Highlanders for the

2018 and 2019 seasons.

The 45-test All Black will be

the attack coach for the side, replacing

head coach Tony Brown,

who is shifting to Japan to help

coach the national team after

this season.

Mauger has just finished a spell

coaching the Leicester Tigers in

England and was actively pursued

by the Highlanders.

Mauger coached the Crusaders

under Todd Blackadder for three

seasons before heading to the

Leicester Tigers where he was

was head coach under director of

rugby Richard Cockerill.

However, he was moved into

the top job in January when

Cockerill left but was then surprisingly

sacked in March just

after winning some silverware

for the club.

With Brown leaving, a new

head coach is needed but Clark

said the franchise would not

rush that decision.

With the appointment of

Mauger it means none of the

coaching team will have played

for Otago.

Highlanders chief executive

Roger Clark said that never came

into the appointment of Mauger

as the franchise was simply looking

for the best candidate.

They are not many Otago

people out there coaching.

When we got Jamie Joseph and

Simon Culhane in to coach the

Highlanders that was all about

creating a new culture and environment

in the South.’’

He was confident Mauger

would get the best out of the

playing group and would be part

of this season’s review.

Mauger is in the United States

on holiday with his wife, Amy,

and four children. He will head

to Dunedin in July.

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

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

same line or row.

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,

and correct the flaws that are most

egregious (if affordable) or can be relatively

easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of

the market, then ask to see listings for

properties similar to yours that have sold in

the past six months. Check out comparable

listings yourself in the real estate section

of your newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick, easy sale

or the highest possible price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks,

and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away,

sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage—

so the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your

house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs

trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless

and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN

BUILDING INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older

homes, to identify—and potentially solve—

problems your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.

PROPOSED WAINONI PARK

STORMWATER BASIN

EASEMENT ON RESERVE

The Aranui catchment is at greater flood risk since

the earthquakes due to land damage. To reduce the

increased flood risk in the catchment the north east

corner of Wainoni Park has been selected as a site for

a new flood storage basin. The basin will store flood

water in heavy rainfall events and release it back to

the stormwater network as soon as there is capacity

in the stormwater network, reducing the flood risk to

properties in the adjacent areas.

This is public notice in accordance with the

requirements of Section 48 (2) of the Reserves Act

1977 (Act) that the Council is to be requested to

resolve to grant, subject to the consent of the Minister

of Conservation, easements in gross for the right to

drain water over the land described in Schedule A

below.

Schedule A

Approximately 7,100 square metres of Part Reserve

5208, Section 3 SO 359536 and Lot 2 DP 45894, a

recreation reserve of some 57,600 square metres,

the control of which is vested in the Christchurch City

Council pursuant to the Reserves Act 1977.

Wainoni Park is situated at 31 Hampshire Street. To

provide the required stormwater storage the north-east

section of the park will be dug out by approximately

one to one and a half metres. The resulting flood

storage basin will then be extensively landscaped to

enhance the surrounding park environment. The space

will remain fully accessible to the public for recreation

purposes at all times other than when temporary

ponding occurs during extreme rainfall events or during

occasional maintenance periods.

To obtain a plan and further details on the proposed

easements please contact:

Email: barry.woodland@ccc.govt.nz

Any person or organisation wishing to either make

a submission or object to the proposed easements

over part of the reserve described in this notice, may

do so in writing no later than 5pm on Wednesday, 7

June 2017 to the person whose contact details appear

above. Submitters should indicate in their submission

if they wish to appear before a Hearings Panel to be

heard in support of their submission or objection.
