HOSPITAL CAR

PARKING CRISIS

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

Could Hagley Park be the solution?

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE SOLUTION to Christchurch

Hospital’s car parking crisis could be

Hagley Park.

The Star has learned, turning an area

of Hospital Corner across the road from

the hospital is a possibility and has been

discussed informally by the Canterbury

District Health Board.

The parking situation at the hospital

is in chaos, brought on by the central

city rebuild and ongoing road works

which take more off-street parking.

Health board member Jo Kane

said more parking was urgently

needed. Hagley Park was an ideal

location.

She said the health board had

discussed it informally but had not

taken it further.

The only issue was it would leave us

with nowhere to land the rescue helicopters,”

she said.

The CDHB has set aside land on

Antigua St for a parking building, but it

cannot be cleared until hospital services

there can be moved to new buildings.

That is set to take about three years.

CDHB chief executive David Meates

said parking at Hagley Park had been

discussed but was “not an option” being

formally considered. He would not give

his view on the idea.

A Development Christchurch report

in January found up to 2000 extra car

parks would be needed long-term,

and closer to 3000 during the hospital

rebuild.

IT’S A no-brainer to use Hagley

Park for temporary car parking

to alleviate the massive issues at

Christchurch Hospital.

Why the powers that be

haven’t put that into action is

surprising.

On page 1 today, we canvass

those for and against the idea,

and surprisingly Hands Off

Hagley – the group that tried

to stop the cricket stadium –

supports the idea.

Finding a car park if

you’re visiting the hospital is

diabolical, and it is going to get

worse as the rebuild picks up

more pace.

So it seems totally logical

to tarseal a reasonable area

of Hagley Park’s Hospital

Corner, put in, say, 120min

parks for people visiting the

hospital and parking for

hospital staff.

When the parking buildings

are finished in the area, the

tarseal can be ripped up and

the park replanted with grass

and restored to its former

glory.

Pretty simple in my view.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw widespread jubilation

throughout the city on May 8, 1945, to celebrate

victory in Europe. On the same day in 1987, Sir Neil

Isaac, founder of Peacock Springs Conservation

Park, dies. On May 9, 1915, Christchurch tennis

star and four time Wimbledon champion Captain

A. F. Wilding was killed in action in Belgium. On

May 10, 1975, Vicki Buck, 19, became the city’s

(and New Zealand’s) youngest ever city councillor.

On May 13-15, 1920, the Prince of Wales, (later

King Edward VIII, visited the city. On May 14-15,

1886, floods inundated the city centre. On May

14, 1868, the Lyttelton Times first published a daily

evening newspaper, The Star.

HAT IN HOT DEMAND

A giant floral hat created by a

Christchurch designer is set to

be worn at a Buckingham Palace

garden party this month. The

White Rose of York hat was one of

15 floral creations by Jenny Gillies

being exhibited in the United

Kingdom, where it was seen by

the wife of the chairman of North

of England Horticultural Society

Council, who “fell in love with it”

and asked permission to wear it at the palace garden party.

Weet-Bix

kids meet

All Blacks

heroes

• By Bridget Rutherford

ALL BLACKS Israel Dagg and

Ryan Crotty were asked the

hard-hitting questions yesterday

by some of their toughest critics

– Christchurch kids.

How many Weet-Bix can they

eat? Who is the smelliest All

Black? And who is the worst

room mate?

The kids from several schools

asked the questions when they

met the pair as part of Dare

to Dream, a new campaign

to inspire kids to follow their

dreams.

Apparently Dagg can handle

six to eight Weet-Bix and no one

wants to bunk with frontrower

Wyatt Crockett because he’s a

chronic snorer.

Dagg and Crotty’s stories are

two of 15 that feature on the

back of All Blacks Collector

Cards in Weet-Bix boxes, which

are now on sale.

Dagg said growing up in the

Hawkes Bay he made the most of

what he had, and used his

sister’s fluffy slipper as a rugby

ball.

“I used to have some posts,

which was the power pole and

the corner of the fence, and I

used to just kick it through that

all day.”

INSPIRING: New Brighton

Catholic School pupils were

excited to meet All Blacks

He wanted to inspire kids

and show them anything was

possible. Crotty was given a

pair of Andrew Mehrtens’

rugby socks and kicking tee

while he was a ball boy for the

Canterbury NPC team as a kid.

“It’s fair to say I wore those

socks for every training session

for the next five to 10 years, they

were pretty special to me.”

He said they inspired him, and

he hoped to do the same.

In Brief

QUAIL ISLAND

ACCOMMODATION

A building on Lyttelton Harbour’s

Quail Island will be transformed

into a hut for visitors to stay

overnight in. Department of

Conservation Christchurch

operations manager Andy

Thompson said the caretakers

cottage would be turned into

a hut, which would provide

either nine or 12 beds. The

interpretation centre, which was

in the cottage, would move to

the barracks building. He said

the work to convert the building

would be done over winter so it

could be ready for use in summer,

when people could book a bed.

RIVERBANK CLEAN-UP

On Saturday, hundreds of

volunteers will don their

gumboots to pick up rubbish

littering the estuary, Heathcote

and Avon riverbanks for the

annual Mother of All Clean Ups.

Fifty-six sites around the city will

be cleaned up. It will run from

10am-noon. Last year’s event

cleared more than 20 tonnes

of rubbish, and organisers are

hoping to do even better this time

around. To register visit

Retirement

village fence

dispute resolved

• By Sarla Donovan

A DISPUTED fence in an over-

60s retirement village is to be

moved.

Sanctuary Villas resident Patsy

Clegg had the fence (above) built

six years ago to provide her corner

unit with privacy but neighbours

Kathleen and Glyn Hardy

claimed the fence was illegal and

dangerous.

It borders an access road used

by residents and the Hardys said it

intruded onto common property

and limited the visibility of vehicles

rounding the corner.

Mrs Clegg has agreed to move

the fence back from the road at

her own expense, after being

asked by the Sanctuary Villas

body corporate committee, which

oversees the affairs of residents.

A plan for the alteration was

drawn up and the Hardys have

now agreed to it.

The fence is to be shifted in June.

CAR PARKING CRISIS: A Photoshopped (left) image of what car parking at Hospital Corner could be, and (right) what it is today.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Email gabrielle.stuart@starmedia.kiwi on whether Hagley Park should be used as a temporary car park.

Idea to tackle hospital car parking issues

•From page 1

Using Hagley Park for car

parking is likely to be a contentious

issue.

The Star asked Mayor Lianne

Dalziel what she thought of the

idea.

But she did not answer the

question, saying only it had

not been raised in any formal

discussions with her, and it was

not something she was currently

considering.

Hands Off Hagley, the group

which fought against the cricket

oval in the park, says the idea to

use it for temporary car parking

had merit.

Spokesman Martin Meehan

said he would be open to seeing

it used, so long as it was public

parking, only for a set period of

time, and had strict safeguards

around it.

The cricket was a permanent

acquisition, whereas this is temporary

and for the greater good.

So I wouldn’t be out there with

placards,” he said.

Part of Hagley Park was used

temporarily for hospital car

parking after the February 22,

2011, earthquake, but that land

is now part of the Hagley Oval

development.

Mr Meehan said the city

council spent $1.2m upgrading

the Hospital Corner sports fields

last year, and he was worried that

would be wasted.

“Logic would say yes, it’s

an ideal spot to use. But for

goodness sake, where was the

planning around parking? This

should never have been allowed

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

to happen,” he said.

A Government Act has strict

rules around how Hagley Park

can be developed, and says the

city council cannot “appropriate”

any part of the park for car parking

without consent from the

Minister of Conservation.

But a spokeswoman for

Minister of Conservation

Maggie Barry said her advice

was that the proposal would be

classed “temporary use,” so it

would not require the minister’s

consent.

Does the 31 October

wood burner deadline

The deadline to get a building consent

to replace wood burners older than

Bid to beat roading botch-ups

• By Bridget Rutherford

NO MORE contentious road

layout changes will begin in the

central city until there is general

consensus on the plans.

That is the

message from

city council

transport operations

manager

Aaron

Haymes (left).

He told The

Star the city

council had been listening to

concerns about its central city

An Accessible City projects, and

no more would start until they

had been addressed.

“We need to listen.”

It comes after it was forced to

review its St Asaph St changes

after uproar they made it too narrow,

with poor access to on-street

car parks. The review is ongoing.

The next project was Victoria

St, with work planned aiming to

make it more pedestrian, cyclist

and bus-friendly, he said.

The aim was to start construction

in June, but he said the city

council would meet with all

stakeholders involved to make

sure everyone was happy with it

first.

The last thing we want to be

PROBLEM: The city council says it will not start another An

Accessible City project until everyone is happy, after uproar

doing is going head to head with

the community.

“It’s really important to us that

people like what we’re doing and

are on board.”

Mr Haymes said there needed

to be give and take, because if

the city council made too many

compromises, the programme

“might not get the benefits that

we think we could get.”

The comments come after the

issue was discussed at a recent

Tuesday Club meeting, organised

by former Mayor Garry

Moore.

At the meeting, developer

Stephen Collins said the city

council and Otakaro needed to

“take a breath” so they could

review all the projects

“We need to make sure we

don’t have another St Asaph St,”

he said.

Mr Collins, who built the

Deloitte building on Cambridge

Tce, said developers had spent $1

billion on central city buildings.

That meant nothing if people

did not go to shop there because

the roading layout was too difficult,

he said.

An Accessible City is an

anchor project that aims to

make the roading network more

compact and people-friendly by

adding cycleways, narrower traffic

lanes, planting, reduced speed

limits and removing on-street

car parks.

Otakaro is delivering four projects,

with the remaining done

by the city council.

An Otakaro spokesman said it

had attended recent stakeholder

meetings with the city council

and would continue to do so,

when they related to its projects.

Mr Haymes said he wanted

to work with contractors before

they started building so it would

not affect the roading network.

He said having both roadworks

and construction on the

same streets, such as Cambridge

Tce, was causing problems.

Surgery’s

new home

in operation

THE 24 Hour Surgery is now

open to patients in its new home.

The new surgery, in Pegasus

House on Madras St, near the

intersection with Bealey Ave, became

operational at 12.01am on

Wednesday, after it was officially

opened by Prime Minister Bill

English on Friday.

It has moved from Bealey

Ave into the larger and more

advanced home.

The not-for-profit surgery

is run by Pegasus Health, and

staffed by Christchurch general

practitioners and contracted

medical officers.

Pegasus House, which was

originally the home of Statistics

New Zealand, now houses all of

Pegasus Health’s operations.

Pegasus Health says the surgery

plays a pivotal role in supporting

general practice and the Canterbury

District Health Board

to provide around the clock

accident and medical care. It sees

about 1600 patients each week.

It is expected the surgery will

help reduce the number of people

going to hospital, which is part of

Pegasus Health and the CDHB’s

strategy.

Thief must declare assets

GUILTY: Kate Leoni will be sentenced at the district court after

stealing $130,000 from Christchurch Ready Mix Concrete Ltd.

• By Kurt Bayer

AN OFFICE worker who

stole $133,000 over a two-year

period from a Christchurch

company involved in the city’s

rebuild has been ordered by

a judge to declare all of her

assets, including any she may

have disposed of, before she is

sentenced next month.

Name suppression lapsed yesterday

for Katrina Leigh Leoni,

42, who worked as a receptionist

and office administrator at

Christchurch Ready Mix Concrete

Ltd at Belfast.

Leoni, known as Kate Leoni of

Swannanoa, North Canterbury,

was responsible for receiving

cash payments from customers

for the well-established locallyowned

company.

She was tasked with receipting

the cash, balancing the relevant

customer’s account and then

placing that cash into a container

in preparation for banking.

She was also required to enter

credit notes against customer

accounts.

But between November 2012

and January 2015 she stole cash

– thousands of dollars at a time

– and put it into her own bank

account.

“To cover up her dishonest actions,

the defendant would then

access the company accounting

system and place a credit note

against the customer’s bill,” a

police summary of facts says.

The defendant would not

re-charge or re-invoice the

customers for the credits she had

completed. Therefore this had

the effect of the customer’s bill

having been credited [showing

nothing owing]. However, the

company never received the cash

payments.”

She earlier pleaded guilty to

three representative charges of

theft by a person in a special

relationship, amounting to

a total of $133,011.71, at the

district court.

The transactions went unnoticed

by the company for a

long time until an internal audit

uncovered the discrepancies.

A police probe further found

she had deposited several large

amounts of cash into her bank

account and in a number of

cases the amount deposited

matched the amount she stole.

When spoken to by police she

denied any involvement in the

alleged offending.

Yesterday, she was due to be

sentenced before Judge David

Saunders.

However, defence counsel

David Stringer asked for an adjournment

to allow Leoni extra

time to see how much her bank

would lend her on the lifestyle

block she owned with her husband

so that she could pay the

money back.

Stringer said her ability to pay

back money could be the difference

between being sentenced to

jail or home detention.

Crown prosecutor Karyn

South asked for Judge Saunders

to issue a direction to try to

establish her ability to come up

with the money.

Judge Saunders made the order

to establish means and assets

that Leoni has, or has had in her

possession.

“I believe that is appropriate

given you have dishonesty traits

that you have exhibited in the

past,” he said.

He remanded Leoni on bail to

June 8.

Interim name suppression

lapsed yesterday, with the Judge

Saunders saying it was significant

offending and there was no

reason for it to continue.

“Make no mistake, you are

facing the potential of a custodial

sentence given seriousness

of the offending. If you can

make significant reparation, I

will certainly have to take it into

account,” he said. – NZ Herald

Entrepreneur’s

companies

investigated

• By Laura Mills

A YEAR after a Christchurch

entrepreneur’s second mining

company failed on the

West Coast, liquidators are

investigating links between the

two.

Unsecured creditors may be

owed as much as $1.5 million.

Mike McDonald, a former Ernst

and Young entrepreneur of the

year, first appeared on the West

Coast in November 2014, when

his former company MCAM,

briefly based in Hokitika, announced

it expected to spend at

least $88.5 million developing

five open-cast mines targeting

gold and platinum on the West

Coast.

MCAM Ltd then went into liquidation,

as did MCAM Minerals

a year ago.

In their latest report the liquidators

of MCAM Minerals said they

were continuing to “investigate

the books, records and affairs of

the company to identify any actions

that may be available for the

benefit of creditors.”

Mr McDonald was adjudged

bankrupt in September. Unsecured

creditors are owed

Big signs break the rules

• By Gabrielle Stuart

POLITICAL candidates have

been ordered to take down their

election signs, because they are

too big.

Warning letters have been

sent to both National list MP

Nuk Korako and Labour

Christchurch Central candidate

Duncan Webb, ordering them

to take down some signs.

Outside

the election

period,

candidates

have to follow

city council

rules, which

ban any signs

Duncan Webb

taller than

90cm or

wider than

60cm unless they have special

consent.

Bigger signs up to three square

metres are allowed between July

22 and September 22.

Mr Korako, who is running in

the Port Hills electorate, said he

was not aware of the rules until

he was contacted by the city

council.

He said he had no complaints

about his signs last election.

He said he had taken down

some signs, including some

large ones on Dyers Pass Rd, but

had left others up in commercial

areas, where he believed they

did not break the rules.

The council has got a job to

do, but they’ve been really good

about it, they don’t come down

on you with a hammer,” he said.

There are also rules around

election advertising, which is

only allowed during the election

period.

But he said his billboards were

advertising his office, not asking

for votes, so he believed they did

not break the rules.

Mr Webb also had to take

down several of his signs, because

they were too big.

He said he had seen dozens of

other non-complying signs up

all over the city, but he was told

by a city council worker that the

rules were usually only enforced

if someone complained.

“So it comes down to people

who might not agree with my

politics complaining about my

signs,” he said.

TOO BIG:

Christchurch

Central candidate

Duncan Webb and

National MP Nuk

Korako have been

ordered to take

down billboards

this size on some

residential streets,

because they

break city council

rules.

PHOTO: GEOFF

SLOAN

City council head of

regulatory compliance Tracey

Weston said complaints had been

made about 10 different election

signs so far this year, and some of

them were still under investigation.

But she could not say who

the signs belonged to, or if

other candidates had also been

warned.

She said the majority of the

signs were in residential areas,

and broke the rules because of

their size and content.

Wigram young

slow to enrol

• By Bridget Rutherford

LESS THAN half of young

Wigram residents are enrolled

to vote in September’s general

election – the worst electorate in

the city.

Between half and three quarters

of 18-24 year olds are already

enrolled in the Christchurch

electorates, including Selwyn and

Waimakariri, allowing them to

vote on September 23.

But only 46.7 per cent were

currently enrolled in the Wigram

electorate – the lowest of all.

Wigram MP Megan Woods said

a lot of people living in the electorate

were university students,

and enrolled in their parents’

electorates – similar to Dunedin

North.

Christchurch Central was the

second lowest, at 49.6 per cent,

and Ilam at 51.7 per cent.

The figures, provided by the

Electoral Commission, take into

account those enrolled of the estimated

eligible population, on both

the general and Maori rolls.

Port Hills had the highest number

of 18-24 year-olds enrolled of

the city electorates at 73.7 per cent.

It also had the highest number of

people of all ages enrolled, at 92.5

per cent.

Warning over CDHB conflicts

• By Gabrielle Stuart

HEALTH BOARD members

have been told they should have

made a decision on the conflict

of interest which lead to the

resignation of former chairman

Murray Cleverley.

Mr Cleverley

(left) resigned

last month after

an investigation

into potential

conflicts of interest,

including

around a building

the Canterbury District

health Board leased.

Mr Cleverley told the other

health board members about

the potential conflict last year,

but they allowed him to decide

how to handle it.

But speaking at a CDHB

meeting, senior corporate

solicitor Greg Brogden told

health board members they

were all responsible for making

a collective decision about how

conflicts were handled.

“It would be wrong for a board

member to say I think I have

managed this situation, and for

you to carry on. You’re all responsible

for perceived or direct

conflict,” he told the board.

INVESTIGATED: Former Canterbury District Health Board

chairman Murray Cleverley was also director of a company

which owns an Oxford Tce building leased by the CDHB.

The conflict related to a building

on Oxford Tce which was

bought by Silverfin Capital Ltd

in December last year on behalf

of a syndicate of investors, and

leased to the CDHB.

Mr Cleverley became a director

of Silverfin in May last year.

He included the company on

his list of CDHB interests that

month, but did not flag it as a

potential conflict of interest

until August, when Silverfin

was in the process of buying the

building.

The Ministry of Health then

asked Mr Cleverley for an explanation.

It was told Mr Cleverley

would stay out of any decisions

around the building, but those

were unlikely to happen while

he was CDHB chairman.

That was because the CDHB

had signed a long-term lease of

the building in 2014, and the

lease was not up for renegotiation

until 2030.

The building was sold to

Silverfin in December, but the

CDHB, as tenant of the building,

was not involved in the deal.

The Ministry of Health discussed

the issue with the State

Services Commission, and they

decided the “optimal solution”

would be for Mr Cleverley to

resign from Silverfin.

But when that was put to Mr

Cleverley, he refused to resign.

During the later investigation,

Mr Cleverley told investigator

Michael Heron QC: “Their view

that I should resign from Silverfin

was to me naively uncommercial,

somewhat insulting to

me (by implying I might not be

trustworthy), and not justified

on the facts.”

Mr Heron concluded Mr

Cleverley was entitled to take

the position he did, but resigning

from the directorship would

have been “the prudent and cautious

course of action here.”

Mr Cleverley also part-owned

an investment company with

former CERA employees

Gerard Gallagher and Simon

Nikoloff, who the investigation

found had committed “serious

misconduct.”

Three other former CERA

employees are now being investigated

for potential conflicts of

interest.

Call for strict

conditions on

dredging plan

• By Bridget Rutherford

MARINE FARMERS have

called for strict conditions to be

put in place if Lyttelton Port of

Christchurch’s dredging plan goes

ahead.

LPC has applied for resource consent

to deepen, widen and lengthen

the current navigation channel to let

larger container ships in in an $80-

$130 million project.

The farmers want strict conditions,

including comprehensive

monitoring, if the consent was

granted to protect marine life.

In his hearing submission, Ngai

Tahu Seafoods marine biologist

Thomas Hildebrand said the

dredging could add stress to paua,

rock lobster, mussels and their

habitats.

LPC has done comprehensive

studies on the effects of marine

life, but Mr Hilderbrand said

they did not address the effects on

paua.

The proposal says the 18 million

cu m of sediment removed would be

dumped about 6km off shore from

Godley Head.

Mr Hildebrand said the sediment

could drift, or bury rock lobster

passing through the dumping area.

Home away from home for cancer families one step closer

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THOUSANDS OF families

battling cancer will be given a

home away from home through

the work of a local trust.

The Christchurch Bone Marrow

Cancer Trust has revealed

plans to build a 43-unit apartment

block on Selwyn St, more

than doubling the number of

families it can host.

The new building is expected

to cost about $10 million, and a

public fundraising campaign is

set to be launched next month to

help pay for it.

Ranui House was opened

by the trust in 1993 as a place

where people could stay close to

hospital while family members

were receiving treatment.

A fundraising campaign

raised $2.5 million to build

the first nine-unit house on

Cambridge Tce, and a second,

18-unit building was opened

beside it in 2008.

The new property, which is

on the corner of Selwyn St and

Waller Tce, has been owned by

the trust since 2010, but it has

been working to raise funds

and get resource consent for the

building. It was given this year.

Bone Marrow Cancer Trust

chief executive Allison Nicol

said she would not comment

on the plans until closer to the

campaign launch, when they

were finalised.

But in a newsletter, she said it

would require a lot of fundraising,

and would be “a challenging

but exciting time.”

Disaster response

group planned

• By Caitlin Miles

A DISASTER response group is

being set up in Redcliffs to offer

help and support during natural

disasters.

The Redcliffs Residents’ Association

is in the process of establishing

the Redcliffs Response and

Resilience Team to get the community

involved in the local emergency

planning and preparedness

in the case of a natural disaster.

The group has been established

as a result of the poorly planned

tsunami response following the

November 14 Kaikoura earthquake.

It is currently in the very

early stages of planning.

The group has identified an urgent

need for tsunami evacuation

planning with a focus on community

education.

Redcliffs Residents Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said

creating the group and a plan was

important for the area.

“Of course the recent tsunami

and evacuation is fresh in everyone’s

minds and this area is

vulnerable so there is a pressing

need to improve the plans for such

an event and ensure that the whole

community understands what to

do in the event of another warning

and need to evacuate the coastal

area,” Dr McIntosh said.

ELECTRIC BUSES, electric

rubbish trucks, electric car

fleets – they are being touted as

the latest technology and the

way of the future.

But in Christchurch, they

may actually be ‘back to the

future’.

Electric vehicles were common

in Christchurch back

in the 1920s, with about 200

operating in the city at its peak,

according to a 1976 Star article.

Last month, the Christchurch

EV Group claimed to have

broken a New Zealand record

when they gathered 103 electric

cars together at Canterbury

University.

But a higher record may have

been set in the city almost 100

years ago.

Most of the electric vehicles

in the 1920s were charged

together overnight at the city

council Municipal Electricity

Department garage on Manchester

St.

In 1921 it was recorded that

51 electric vehicles were being

charged there overnight, 40 privately

owned and 11 owned by

the city council – but there is no

record of whether that number

grew as more electric trucks

were imported.

Christchurch EV Group

organiser Mark Nixon said he

would be more than happy to

hand over the title if records

were found of a larger gathering

in Christchurch’s past.

“I’d love it. It’s all in the name

of fun, and if we had to say

we broke the 21 st -century

record instead we’d still be

happy with that,” he said.

Orion systems engineer

Neville Digby dug into the

history of Christchurch’s

electric vehicles while

working as part of a team

restoring a 1919 Walker

electric truck.

The trucks were marketed

as a more efficient

alternative to horse-drawn

carts, and were popular

for deliveries.

Mr Digby said it was

very difficult to find

records of the electric

vehicles, and most of them

had been stripped down for

scrap metal around World

War 2.

The Orion truck was saved

as had been converted into a

mobile lunchroom, and then

into a caravan for workers to

stay in.

Now restored, it is one of

only three still operating in

the world, and sits in the foyer

at the Orion headquarters in

Burnside.

RESTORED: Orion systems engineer Neville Digby restored

this 1919 Walker electric truck, one of about 200 electric

vehicles used in Christchurch in the 1920s. (Top) – Some of

Christchurch’s electric vehicles near the Carlton Mill bridge

in 1921.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

He said the truck would have

had a top speed of 22km/h, and

a range of 60km before needing

a charge.

It has travelled more than

320,000km, and is still clocking

up kilometres as it has a current

registration and warrant of

fitness.

Mr Digby said early electric

vehicles were ahead of the

times, even when it came to the

way they were charged.

Some of the electricity to

charge them came from an

incinerator burning the city’s

rubbish and converting that

energy to power.

Christchurch Airport’s plan to reach

On a cold, damp, smoggy night in China,

Fran O’Sullivan talks to Christchurch Airport chief

executive Malcolm Johns about plans for a virtual

airport terminal, autonomous vehicles, augmented

reality and artificial intelligence

CHRISTCHURCH Airport

chief executive Malcolm Johns is

on a roll as he outlines his plans

to put innovation at the centre of

the company’s growth strategies.

Mr Johns outlined the vision

which brought him and handpicked

senior executive Justin

Watson to Hangzhou to cement

an agreement with e-commerce

giant Alibaba.

“We very much want to bring

a virtual and a real terminal together

for visitors and in the area

of big data, the agreement we are

about to execute with Alibaba is

the biggest step we have taken in

that space,” Mr Johns said.

What Christchurch Airport

and Alibaba later signed was a

memorandum of understanding

which, at its most basic level, will

connect small and regional New

Zealand businesses with Chinese

visitors before, during and after

their visits. This promises to

open up the power of microexporting

– particularly from

the South Island.

The signing ceremony at

Alibaba’s massive Hangzhou

campus was attended by Alibaba

Australasian executives and the

New Zealand consul-general

to Shanghai, Guergana Guermanoff.

The companies’ strategic partnership

plays into a vision which

is being strongly promoted by

Alibaba founder Jack Ma, to have

two billion consumers in microtrading

relationships with tens

of millions of businesses around

the world by 2026.

It will also open the way for

Chinese visitors to more easily

book trips to New Zealand, pay

for items while they are here and

then re-order quality products

they have sampled in New Zealand

after they return home to

China.

“Alibaba’s e-commerce is the

biggest in the world,” says Mr

DEAL: Christchurch Airport chief executive Malcolm Johns

and Alibaba Australasian business development director John

O’Loghlen sign a memorandum of understanding at Alibaba’s

Hangzhou campus.

Johns. “It’s integrated and very

powerful, but the raw power of it

is not its mass but its individuality.

“It’s not about the big numbers.

It’s about the one-to-one direct

trading relationships that allow

for surgical micro-exporting to

develop.”

Mr Johns took the reins at

Christchurch Airport three years

ago. The airport had lost about

half a million passengers a year

in the wake of the devastating

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

and had lost significant market

share relative to Auckland Airport.

“We were very much looking

at how we could bring leadership,

ambition and confidence

back into the city.”

Mr Johns had been chief

executive of the InterCity Group

and had served on the board of

Tourism NZ.

Mr Watson, who is his chief

aeronautical and commercial

officer, was head-hunted for

his strong background in fastmoving

consumer goods and

was more recently Tourism NZ’s

director of trade, PR and major

events.

In 2014, the airport set strategic

objectives to achieve 8.5

million passengers a year by

2025 (forecast to add $1 billion

annually to South Island and NZ

GDP), generate 10,000 new jobs

across the regions and provide

competitive returns to shareholders.

Early signs are that the

strategy is working.

The South Island’s gateway

for international visitors set an

all-time record of 6.3 million

passengers for the 2016 financial

year. Servicing the South Island

tourism market also resulted in

more than $180 million of new

GDP in all regions of the South

Island – as well as generating

a record $31m in dividends for

shareholders.

Will you help break the cycle?

For young people who have been exposed to family

violence getting the right support is important. Aviva’s

Youth Service gives young men and women the tools to

create safer and healthier relationships in the future.

new heights with Chinese company

Details of Christchurch

Airport’s disruptive strategy

are commercially sensitive. But

already, autonomous vehicle

trials are under way; a driverless,

electric Smart Shuttle is expected

to be operating by 2019, moving

15 passengers at a time. Other

autonomous applications are being

discussed and the company

is in the early exploratory stages

of using artificial intelligence.

“At a philosophical level, we

were just trying to target value,

capture value and create value

in the visitor sector and our

focus on big data converged on

Alibaba,” said Mr Johns.

Mr Watson says small New

Zealand businesses frequently

experience difficulties trying to

make an impact in China. By

installing the online payment

system, Alipay, in their retail

outlets, Kiwi small and mediumsized

enterprises could make

more from the Chinese visitor

experience and move to microtransactions

with tourists who

have been to New Zealand.

The strategy was underpinned

by a Berl study which indicated

that such consumers would be

Zealand products if they had

been here.

Said Mr Watson: “There is an

opportunity to target and attract

higher value visitors from China

to stay on and spend more. There

is also a skew towards young

in groups which exactly overlays

with Alibaba’s audience as well.”

“Through Fliggy [Alibaba’s

travel service, previously named

Alitrips], there is the ability to

target them before they get to the

South Island. And through the

and create new value streams

for New Zealand SMEs to have

those micro-transactions.”

Mr Johns points out that

Christchurch Airport can step

in and build an online platform

(or virtual terminal) on which

SMEs can display their products

– “they don’t have the expertise

to data mine and highly target

visitors”.

“For us, it fits into the virtualisation

of our terminal. We can

only fit so many retail outlets

inside a physical terminal, but if

you create a virtual overlay on

top of it, you can extend your

passenger spend rates and your

retail relationships in particular.

“What drives us is building a

virtual terminal and what Alibaba

gives us the opportunity to

do, is to take what we are already

doing in the tourism sector and

extend it out to the productive

sector, particularly for SMEs.”

Mr Johns hit on the concept

at a seminar in China, where

the general manager for Spanish

company, Mango Leisure,

talked about their lessons from

operating in both the “High St”

and online in China. “What

digital in China is the big

numbers but it is actually the

little numbers that really count.

That is where the power sits.”

There is precedent. When

China Southern started flying

to Christchurch, strong visitor

demand saw stocks of Mt Cook

Aoraki salmon virtually wiped

out due to the highly seasonal

nature of tourism.

“If you have got a group of

consumers that are self-selecting

an interest in Aoraki salmon and

they have an excess of supply

during the winter months, then

your opportunity is to use that

pre-qualified group to extend

the trading relationship through

micro-exporting,” says Mr

Johns.

“When we looked at the

Alibaba platforms, what we

found was the cost for a SME to

be on some of those platforms

was prohibitive, so if we could do

what we do in our terminal and

aggregate the platform and also

aggregate the virtual terminal

for those SMEs in the regions

to be able to trade off, then that

fits into our virtual terminal

strategy.

Airport deal aims to increase visitor access

•From page 17

Mr Johns said: “That’s what we

approached Alibaba about last

year and got a very warm reception

from the Alitrips, Alipay

and Tmall Global etc.”

The airport board liked the

concept and approved a $1m

development budget. “That is

what has led us to the point we

are now, where we are ready to

commit to take their platforms

and use an integrated database

and start the process of working

here in China and rolling out

for New Zealand and building a

back end for the tourism sector

and the productive sector,” says

Mr Johns.

The airport is a major driver of

the South Island regional economy,

and the 6000 or so people

working there make it the South

Island’s largest employment

site. It is also one of the partners

in the ‘South’ initiative, which

sees all 13 regional tourism organisations

working together to

promote the entire island.

The airport executives say

the virtual terminal concept

has been discussed with the 13

regional tourism organisations,

major businesses such as Ngai

Tahu tourism and retail clients

in their terminal – “they are very

TOURISM: One of the reasons Christchurch Airport has formed

a partnership with Alibaba is to open the way for more Chinese

visitors to Christchurch and the South Island.

excited.”

The real power in this is you

are dealing with an integrated

database across the three stages:

Pre-visit, during the visit and

post-visit. The challenge is for

someone like Ngai Tahu – which

obviously has seafood and other

interests – is that on their own

they couldn’t aggregate to the

point of getting all three of those

phases working in concert with

each other and that’s the value

that we believe we can bring to

the process.

“Because in partnership with

Alibaba, we can get the prequalification

for high value visitors,

including influencing the

itineraries of their visits to New

Zealand to match up with the

type of product we know they

will be interested in.

“Such as the artesian [water]

product produced in the regions.

Then we can lift those.”

Alibaba’s Maggie Zhou is

optimistic that the partnership

with Christchurch Airport will

boost micro-exports from New

Zealand.

Ms Zhou – the company’s

Australasian managing director

– explains how the e-commerce

giant will be able to mine its

customer database to help the

airport’s initiative to assist South

Island SMEs break into the Chinese

consumer market.

“Before the travellers go to

New Zealand, we will upload

their data from our platforms,”

she says.

“We know where they will go

and also we will promote a lot of

things to them.

“We will know what kind of

products they are interested in

and their travel plans, and when

they arrive in New Zealand, we

will let them know what kind of

nearby places they can go to.”

At a subsequent briefing, Alibaba

executives explained how

a geolocation-based ‘Discover’

function and push notifications

within the Alipay app help users

find nearby merchants, receive

promotional information and

make purchase decisions.

Said Ms Zhou: “If you are a

consumer and you open our

platform, your front page is different

from mine – 1000 people

see 1000 pages that are different.

“You need to have a big consumer

base to do that. In China,

we already have 450 million

users, so we can have the big data

to customise the page for those

consumers.”

The initiative will also enable

airlines to better utilise planes’

bellies to transport parcels of

products back to China. NZ Post

will be the logistics partner for

the project.

The next stage is for the airport

to develop a “South” presence on

Alitrips and support the rollout

of Alipay across the South Island

tourism industry. It will later

develop a retail trading platform

through Tmall Global and

provide data mining resources

to target the right products to

the right customers. This stage

will also involve rolling out the

Alibaba platforms to the North

Island.

The Christchurch Airport

initiative fits within Alibaba’s

globalisation strategy.

Tmall Global plans to attract

more young and affluent consumers

by recruiting new and

interesting products and brands,

releasing them through the

Tmall Global channel, and helping

merchants grow in the China

market. The platform already

hosts more than 14,500 international

brands from 63 countries

and regions.

Wagner sets her agenda

IT’S A very exciting

and important

few weeks for me

as I take over the

reins as Minister

supporting Greater

Christchurch

Regeneration.

I was born and raised in

Christchurch. This city is my

home and the reason I got

into politics – I want to ensure

Christchurch is a great place

to live for my family, friends

and community. The last six

years have been tough for us

all. Everyone lost something

– a family member, a friend, a

home, a community, a lifestyle.

Many have been injured,

physically or emotionally,

and we’ve all been stretched,

sometimes almost to breaking

point. But we’ve also supported

one another through the

initial disaster, the recovery,

the rebuild and now, the

regeneration phase.

And we need to continue

supporting individuals,

organisations and communities

still working through

earthquake issues.

Although we still have plenty

to do, I want to start my tenure

with a reflection on how far

Nicky Wagner

we’ve actually come. There is

so much to acknowledge and

celebrate, and I’m very proud to

be part of this community and

its progress.

Right now, Christchurch

is a city of real opportunity. I

think we all want the same

thing – a vibrant, peoplefriendly

city where our families

can thrive. We want a great

education for our kids, we want

training and higher learner

opportunities, we want jobs we

like, we want support services,

solid infrastructure and a

safe place to relax and enjoy

ourselves.

And we can do it. I’ll be

working hard alongside Mayor

Lianne Dalziel, the city council,

Regenerate Christchurch,

Otakaro, other agencies and

community groups and,

most importantly, you. By

working together we can create

something really special.

I know there’s still a lot of

work to be done. We need

to pick up the pace and stay

focussed on moving in the right

direction. The ultimate test for

everything we do needs to be: Is

this good for Christchurch?

If every decision, plan or

project can pass that test, then

we’ll be safe in the knowledge

that our city will be good for

us and for many generations to

come.

it. In fact, most of my

Labour colleagues did it.

That’s right, we all went back

to school for a few hours. No, it

wasn’t to learn campaign tactics

from the schoolyard as one wag

suggested, but to show support

for better funding of teacher

aides and other school support

staff.

For a couple of hours, we

shadowed teacher aides and

got to see first-hand what they

do and were reminded of the

challenges they face. Teacher

aides are the people who work

one-on-one in the classroom

with children who need extra

help. This is not only hugely

beneficial to the child receiving

the support, but also allows the

classroom teacher to work with

other children in the class.

At the Wigram school I was at,

I was blown away by the patience,

compassion and professionalism

of the staff I had the privilege

to shadow. Teacher aides do an

amazing job with some of our

most vulnerable children and

they deserve better recognition.

That recognition needs to start

with funding. School support

staff are paid out of the school

operations grant, competing with

day-to-day costs like electricity,

ICT, and maintenance. But in

last year’s Budget, the National

Government snuck through

a freeze to this very school

operations grant. This funding

freeze was unprecedented. No

Government as far back as 1999

has ever frozen school funding

before, and it’s put strained

school budgets under more

pressure. Schools are having to

ask parents with tight family

budgets for more, and for some

this isn’t possible.

Labour has made a clear

commitment to fund school

support staff through a

centralised system, as we

presently do for teachers.

We’ll ensure support staff

are given better training and

professional development and

have access to a career framework

that rewards them for advancing

their skills.

Work Together to Promote

the Belt and Road Initiative

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation will be

held from May 14 to May 15 in Beijing. The Belt and Road Initiative

has become an important platform for international cooperation

with the bright prospects in the world amid rising protectionism

and unilateralism. Since the initiative was proposed four years ago,

China has expanded its “circle of friends” in the Belt and Road

region with fruitful achievements in infrastructure construction and

capacity cooperation, seeking further development in the future. It

is worthwhile to know more about this important initiative and its

implications for the world.

Background of the Belt and road InItIatIve

More than two millennia ago, the diligent and courageous people of

Eurasia explored and opened up several routes of trade and cultural

exchanges that linked the major civilisations of Asia, Europe and

Africa, collectively called the Silk Road by later generations. For

thousands of years, the Silk Road Spirit — “peace and cooperation,

openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutual benefit” has

been passed from generation to generation, promoted the progress

of human civilisation, and contributed greatly to the prosperity

and development of the countries along the Silk Road. Symbolising

communication and cooperation between the East and the West,

the Silk Road Spirit is a historic and cultural heritage shared by all

countries around the world.

In the 21st century, a new era marked by the theme of peace,

development, cooperation and mutual benefit, it is all the more

important for us to carry on the Silk Road Spirit in face of the weak

recovery of the global economy, and complex international and

regional situations.

When Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Central Asia and

Southeast Asia in September and October of 2013, he raised the

initiative of jointly building the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st

-Century Maritime Silk Road (Belt and Road), which have attracted

close attention from all over the world.

The Belt and Road run through the continents of Asia, Europe

and Africa, connecting the vibrant East Asia economic circle at

one end and developed European economic circle at the other,

and encompassing countries with huge potential for economic

development. The Silk Road Economic Belt focuses on bringing

together China, Central Asia, Russia and Europe (the Baltic); linking

China with the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea through

Central Asia and West Asia; and connecting China with Southeast

Asia, South Asia and the Indian Ocean. The 21st -Century Maritime

Silk Road is designed to go from China’s coast to Europe through the

South China Sea and the Indian Ocean in one route, and from China’s

coast through the South China Sea to the South Pacific in the other.

new engIne for gloBalISatIon and IncluSIve

cooperatIon

Globalisation currently is facing various problems and challenges, and

the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative will become the engine

for the future of globalisation. The Belt and Road Initiative is against

narrow-minded protectionism and isolationism. The Initiative has

become the common cause of the world which will help rebalance

the economic globalisation by making it more universally-beneficial

and inclusive. With its guiding principles of “extensive consultation,

joint contribution and shared benefits”, the initiative has become a

chorus instead of a solo. It aims to modernise the ancient trade route

while aspiring to create common prosperity.

China’s initiative to jointly build the Belt and Road, embracing the

trend towards a multi-polar world, economic globalisation, cultural

diversity and greater IT application, aims at being highly efficient

in terms of the allocation of resources, and at achieving a deep

integration of markets among the countries concerned. It will thereby

jointly create an open, inclusive and balanced regional economic

cooperation architecture that benefits all.

Countries along the Belt and Road have their own resource advantages

and their economies are mutually complementary. Therefore, there

is a great potential and space for cooperation. We promote policy

coordination, facilities connectivity, unimpeded trade, financial

integration and people-to-people bonds as our five major goals, and

strengthen cooperation in the key areas.

early harveSt of the InItIatIve

The past four years have witnessed the launching, expansion, fasterthan-expected

progress and fruitful outcomes of the Belt and Road

Initiative. The UN General Assembly, the UN Security Council,

UNESCAP, APEC, ASEM, the GMS have all incorporated or

reflected Belt and Road cooperation in their relevant resolutions and

documents.

A number of important early harvests have been made. Economic

corridor development is making steady progress. An interconnected

infrastructure network is taking

shape. Trade and investment have

increased significantly. Key project

cooperation is underway. The

Asian Infrastructure Investment

Bank (AIIB) and Silk Road Fund

have provided firm support to

financial cooperation. China

Railway Express trains to Europe

have been operating on the vast

Eurasian continent, loaded with

goods and matching the market

needs of countries along the route.

gloBal growth StImulator

The construction of the Belt and Road Initiative benefits not only

China itself, but also countries along the routes. Against the backdrop

of insufficient global demand, the blueprint will make contributions

to the world economic growth.

Chinese enterprises have so far established 56 economic and trade

cooperative zones in more than 20 countries along the routes,

invested accumulatively more than 18 billion U.S. dollars, and created

1-billion-dollar revenue and 160 thousand jobs. Last year, China’s

direct investment in 53 countries along the routes reached 14.53

billion dollars and the total value of contracts China signed with 61

related countries reached over 126 billion dollars.

In the spirit of regional connectivity, China has initiated railway,

road, civil aviation, electricity and telecommunications projects

across the Belt and Road. Because of new infrastructure projects, the

Belt and Road region’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016 grew

by 4.6 percent, exceeding the developing economy’s average growth

of 3.6 percent.

China has signed more than 130 bilateral and regional transport

agreements with countries involved in the Belt and Road, according

to the Ministry of Transport of China. The on-going Jakarta-Bandung

high-speed railway (HSR) project in Indonesia, an investment of 5.1

billion U.S. dollars, was officiated last January.

The Thai-China Industrial Park in Rayong, located some 200

km from Bangkok, is now the biggest center of industrial cluster,

manufacturing and export of China’s traditional industries in

ASEAN countries. The industrial park has so far attracted about 90

corporations with agreements of 2.5 billion dollar investments.

This year, the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative will

continue to be a growth point of the global economy, and the further

expanding of trade exchange, infrastructure connectivity and

financial intermediation will drive the development of production

capacity cooperation, cross border e-commerce and other fields.

StrategIc coordInatIon

China has pushed forward the Belt and Road initiative with solid

progress and stepped up policy coordination with countries along the

route, which have responded positively with practical coordination

strategies. The initiative has so far gained the support of over 100

countries and international organisations, and more than 40 of them

have signed cooperation agreements with China, reaching a broad

international consensus on the initiative.

The concept of the economic belt was first proposed by Xi on a visit

to Kazakhstan in 2013, and Kazakhstan was the first country with

which China started capacity cooperation and strategic coordination.

The two sides have achieved some early results including 51 major

cooperation projects worth over 27 billion dollars and more than

1,200 China-Europe

freight trains that

passed through

Kazakhstan.

During Chinese

Premier Li Keqiang’s

visit to Australia

in March, the two

sides agreed to

integrate the Belt

and Road initiative

with Northern Australia development plan. Jan Adams, Australia’s

ambassador to China, has said that the initiative and the Northern

Australia development plan are highly complementary on a strategic

level, and that the two sides have achieved consensus on aligning the

two efforts.

During Li’s visit to New Zealand in late March, the two countries signed

a memorandum of understanding on the initiative, making New

Zealand the first western developed country to participate substantively

in the Belt and Road. The visit has prompted the establishment of

organisations supporting the Belt and Road. For example, the Oceania

Silk Road Network (OSRN) is being forged by New Zealand business

interests, headed by William Zhao, director and CEO of the Chinaowned

Yashili New Zealand Dairy Company. President of the ruling

National Party

Peter Goodfellow

and National MP

Yang Jian have also

announced the

launch of the Belt

and Road promotion

mechanism, a public

service platform and

network system to

boost cooperation

with China.

Belt and road forum for InternatIonal

cooperatIon

With the imminent Belt and Road Forum for International

Cooperation to be held from in May in Beijing, development of the

initiative has stepped into a golden period. Thus far, 28 heads of

state and government leaders have confirmed their attendance at the

forum. Other delegates include officials, entrepreneurs, financiers and

reporters from 110 countries, and representatives of 61 international

organisations.

By hosting the forum,

China hopes to

discuss cooperation,

promote strategic

coordination and

deepen partnerships in

the next stage, so as to

advance international

cooperation and

achieve a win-win

result with the development and structural adjustment of Chinese

economy and society.

To better build consensus and advance cooperation, China has set

“Belt and Road: Cooperation for Common Prosperity” as the Forum’s

theme. The agenda will focus on connectivity of policy, transportation,

trade, finance and people. Discussions will be conducted on key

topics such as infrastructure connectivity, economic cooperation

and trade, industrial investment, energy and resources, financial

support, people-to-people exchanges, ecological and environmental

protection and marine cooperation. The Leaders Roundtable, the

highlight of the Forum, will focus on two topics: Policy Synergy for

Closer Partnership and Connectivity Cooperation for Interconnected

Development. The theme and agenda are highly relevant, considering

the circumstances and challenges our world faces.

The forum will give impetus to the Belt and Road cooperation

which features mutual respect and trust, mutual benefit and winwin

cooperation, and mutual learning between civilisations. As long

as all countries along the Belt and Road make concerted efforts to

pursue common goal, there will be bright prospects for the Silk Road

Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, and the

people of countries along the Belt and Road can all benefit from this

Initiative.

Delay to

high country

fence decision

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DECISION over a ratepayerfunded

fence in a high country

station has been held off by the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

after concerns more research needs

to be done on the project.

About five zone committee members

will travel to Cave Stream later

this month to visit the site.

It was planned the committee

would make a final decision on supporting

the funding for a proposed

fence by Flock Hill Holdings Ltd last

Tuesday.

Environment Canterbury proposed

putting $44,236 towards

fencing off a section of Cave Stream

and associated 35ha wetlands at the

station.

It comes after an application by

Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill

Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and

Vince Saunders of Los Angelesbased

Coast Range New Zealand.

This was for vegetation clearance

on nearby terraces so it could intensify

grazing on the land.

It proposed fencing off Cave

Stream as a way of mitigating the

associated loss of biodiversity on the

terraces. The landowners will contribute

$22,000 towards the project.

FUTURISTIC: This design from Irving

Builders has angled walls and a central

climbing.

Exciting designs

submitted

for playhouse

THREE EXCITING designs have been

revealed by the successful entrants in this

year’s playhouse challenge, a special feature

of the 2017 Star Home & Leisure Show.

Fusion Homes with Scratch Architecture,

Irving Builders with PXA Architects

and Pound Road Trading will each build

a specially-designed playhouse to be auctioned

at the show on Saturday, July 1.

The auction will raise money for local

charities Birthright Canterbury and Tenants

Protection Association Christchurch.

TPA manager

Di Harwood said

Birthright Canterbury

and TPA

are grateful to the

three building

companies and

see the playhouse

challenge as a

perfect fit for the

charities.

“While TPA’s

main focus is on supporting people with

housing issues, keeping a consistent roof

over people’s heads is also very much a part

of the work Birthright Canterbury does in

strengthening single parent families.”

Star Media is the major sponsor of the

playhouse challenge, which is also being

supported by Priority Communications,

Wyma Engineering, Resene, Robertson

Creative, and Dave Richards Photography.

These aren’t regular children’s playhouses,”

Star Media general manager Steve

McCaughan said. “They will be judged on

their architectural design and construction,

as well as how much fun they are for kids.”

“We are delighted that the playhouse

challenge will be part of this year’s Star

Home & Leisure Show and are hoping

there will be plenty of interest from buyers.

We are big supporters of Birthright Canterbury

and TPA, who have been looking

after Canterbury people for many years.”

Playhouse challenge judges will include

Birthright Canterbury chair Jane Lancaster,

TPA board member Robin Tinga,

architect John McGrail from Dalman

Architects and early childhood educator

Blanche Head.

The playhouse challenge was inspired by

Australia’s popular cubby house challenge,

which this year raised well over $100,000

for the charity Kids Under Cover.

QUESTION

Can you tell me please why my

gypsophila plant was fl owering

really well for three years, a

huge bush of fl owers, then

died? Branches were going

yellow and I lost the plant. Also,

I can grow the white ones but

not the pink ones. I tried

growing pink ones for a few

years but all died on me. Can

you please help?

Today’s winning question came from

Alessandra Adams. Congratulations!

There are two probable reasons why your gypsophila plants are dying out. As gypsophila means “lime

loving”, it is possible that your soil is too acidic. Gypsophila thrives in soils that are slightly alkaline.

Applications of lime can assist in remedying this problem.

The other possible cause of death is poor drainage. Most gypsophilas tend to be short lived in wet soils. Ideally

plants should be grown in full sun, or light shade and in a rich, fi ne soil. Once established, it is advisable not to

disturb the plant clumps. Cut old stalks back to ground level as the blooms fade to encourage further fl owering.

There is no reason why you can cultivate white but not pink gypsophila. Prepare the soil well, ensure there is

good drainage and try again in spring with some new pink gypsophilas.

Hey Myrtle, where the hell’s Parkhouse Garden Supplies

gone? They aren’t in Parkhouse Road anymore.

They shifted nearly four years ago Sybil.

Where to?

Landscape Lane, you know off Lunns Road?

Landscape Lane, that’s a good name Myrtle.

Yes it is, Landscape Lane runs off Lunns Road which

runs off Curletts Road, Sybil.

Is that the lane between that truck place and the

auction outfit?

That’s right Sybil, between TR Group and Turners.

They got lots of stuff there Myrtle?

Hell yeah Sybil, where you been, you need to go there.

They have 63 bulk bins with everything from: bark, mulches,

compost, shingles, coloured stones and that’s just in the bins,

not counting all the other stuff in their clean sealed yard -

a wonder to behold, Sybil.

What else have they got Myrtle?

They have a shop with all sorts of sprays, fertilisers, tools, potting

mix, pea straw, wine barrels (I bet they drunk the stuff in them),

lots of stuff in bags and the staff are soooo nice and they load

your car for you.

That sounds like great service, Myrtle. Have they got

a website thingy?

C’mon Sybil, I would say the best website in town -

www.parkhousegardensupplies.co.nz.

Will you come and pick me up Myrtle, Bert’s busy

today and he’s a bit grumpy. I want to get down

there and I bet they take my Gold Card.

They do Sybil, you get 10% discount every day

except Monday which is ‘Old Farts Day’ and they give

you 16-57% discount.

Sounds like a lovely place, Myrtle.

Island paradise is picture perfect

.kiwi

Thursday May 11 2017

• By Mike Yardley

LAZING ON sugar-white beaches,

fanned by coconut palms,

while gazing at the gin-clear

lagoon that lassoes the island, is

why the reality of Rarotonga is as

perfect as the postcards.

Drinking in that crisp lagoon

palette of electric blues and

turquoise hues, and basking in

its bath-warm gorgeousness, is

central to Rarotonga’s perennial

stature as a fly-and-flop destination.

A great new way to explore

the underwater world of Muri

Lagoon, is to join a Sea Scooter

Safari with Ariki Adventures.

These ingenious hand-held machines

are shaped like a torpedo

and battery-powered to pull along

you through the water at 4km/h.

Kitted out with a mask, snorkel

and fins, I noticed my water speed

almost doubled when I used the

fins. After a group safety briefing

and short play in the water,

my guide led us through some

of the most abundant marine

snorkelling spots in the lagoon,

swimming amid techni-coloured

schools of fish. (Arki also runs

extra-adventurous tours beyond

the reef on their Ocean Safari.

You’ll need to be comfortable in

the open sea, a competent swimmer,

and not prone to freaking

out if an occasional reef shark

comes into view. The Ocean safari

takes you out to a century-old

shipwreck.)

If you’ve got a GoPro, you can

mount your device on the front of

the sea scooters. You can also hire

wetsuits if you’re anxious about

rubbing up against coral in the

SAFARI: Explore Rarotonga’s underwater world with a sea scooter, it will pull you along at speeds of up to 4km/h. Right – The

thriving coral canyons.

Avoid all red and yellow corals

– and fire coral is aptly named for

the painful sensation it wreaks,

if you brush up against it. I’m

not the most practical of people,

but the scooters are effortless to

master.

Each handle has a throttle button

which should be held down in

tandem, for optimum propulsion.

And the steering system faithfully

follows the direction you point it

in, including nose-diving down

to the lagoon floor, for intimate

encounters with coral gardens

and giant clams.

During our safari we crossed

paths with a lagoon cruise, as they

were attracting the sea life with

food. Suddenly, the sheer size of

the schools of fish frenetically exploded

before our eyes, including

the welcome presence of larger

specimens, like trevally, joining

the feeding frenzy.

The kaleidoscope of marine life

is full of surprises. Keep a look

out for moray eels slinking about

the rocky depths, or the graceful

joy of seeing eagle rays and

sea turtles breezing through the

lagoon.

Ariki Adventures are the only

sea scooter safari operator on

Rarotonga, and their innovative

90min tour reveals so many

eye-popping treasures within the

lagoon. www.arikiholidays.com

On my latest visit to Rarotonga,

I finally made a date with the

nation’s multiple award-winning

island night show at Te Vara Nui

Village.

Launched in 2010, an old taro

swamp was spectacularly transformed

into a show-stopping

performance space, wrapped in a

floating garden, lustily showcasing

Rarotongan music and dance

in style.

The thoughtfully-designed

seating layout wraps around the

elaborate overwater stage, creating

a potently atmospheric arena.

The lavish buffet dinner includes

a generous spread of signature

dishes, including that sterling

icon of Rarotongan cuisine, ika

mata.

Anticipation reaches its crescendo

as the heavy drums beat

with greater and greater intensity.

The production’s exceptional

sound and lighting elements,

complete with flaming torches,

electrifies proceedings.

Suddenly I felt like Las Vegas

had descended on Muri Beach.

Group upon group of beautiful

local dancers throng the multilevel

stage, to celebrate the legend

of Tangaiti and the settlement of

Rarotonga. Their artistry, choreography,

energy and stamina is

mind-blowing.

I have seen my fair share of

cultural shows, but nothing has

come even close to the exhilarating

spectacle at Te Vara Nui. I

recognised one of the performers,

Chris, who had earlier in the

day joined me on a Buggy Tour.

Straight after that, he was slogging

his guts out, playing a top-level

club game of rugby league. And

now he was dancing up a storm

on stage. Where do these people

get their energy from?

Te Vara Nui is undeniably the

mother of all island nights. www.

Theatre/Arts

Play a sense of deja vu for Martin

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

YVONNE MARTIN has never

looked back since she landed her

first gig performing at The Court

Theatre nearly 40 years ago.

The Cashmere resident has

led a vast career performing in

theatres around the country,

directing in city companies and

making appearances on television

shows Shortland St and A

Week of It .

But she still

Court Theatre

as her home.

earthquake.

While she was not performing

in a production at theatre formerly

based in the Christchurch

Arts Centre during the earthquake,

she was heavily involved

in the fundraising for its return

in Addington.

“We had great hopes for the

future for getting this large and

the Mickey’ out of the way

governments are run.

The Canterbury Repertory

Theatre will stage Yes, Prime

Minister based on the late 80s

satirical British sitcom with Ian

Lester, 64, playing the lead role of

Prime Minister Jim Hacker.

“It is relevant, the humour in

it still happens. Nothing changes

in government, it is just so

funny,” Lester said.

Non-political himself, Lester

said while the show is based on

rather empty barn of silo into a

working space and it was very

thrilling to get that done so

quickly”.

Martin said when she started

out, theatre was much more

English-based but with the advent

of television shows are now

more internationally-based.

“I don’t think just because it is

modern it is good or better – just

different . . . just because something

was written a long time ago

doesn’t mean it is bad or can’t be

changed,” she said.

It has been 26 years, but

Martin will perform in Russian

playwright Anton Chekhov’s

Uncle Vanya for the second time

at The Court Theatre.

She will play the role of Maria

Vasilyevna – an elderly lady who

is “a bit of a feminist” and who

Martin said is not anything like

herself .

Focusing on the themes of

family, love and heartbreak,

Martin said the key themes of

Uncle Vanya is the effect a loss of

hope has on a person’s life and

caring for the environment.

Martin said the play,

first published in 1897 was

very advanced for its time,

highlighting climate change and

an English system, it takes the

Mickey out of all the governments

including New Zealand.

“This show just shows how silly

the government is really . . . the

real tough decisions are made in

the evenings over a glass of whiskey

with a fight in your office,”

Lester said.

British himself, Lester moved

to the city from London in 1977

as a printer wanting to see the

world.

“I came here on a two-year

contract, I met a lovely girl and

there you go that is what happens,”

he said.

Lester studied at the London

College of Printing and worked

as a printer from 1969 to 1985.

conserving the forests, which is

relevant today.

“I like to see things recycled – I

hate to see waste and I do what I

personally can to help with that

. . . I do care about the state of

the rivers,” Martin said.

Married at 21, Martin said

taking on a career in theatre was

a risk but was one she was glad

she took.

“I asked my husband whether

he would mind me doing it

because it was such a big commitment,”

she said.

With a supportive family, Martin

said she never had to worry

about where her next meal was

coming form.

But she said with not enough

jobs in the country, performers

need to take every opportunity

they can.

“Keep knocking on doors.

There will be lots of hard knocks

but if that is the only thing you

want to do just keep trying because

one day you will crack it,”

she said.

It was a failed strike by print

workers in London after production

once the size of Canterbury University

He is now self-employed,

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.

CAREERS EXPO

Choosing the right

career path is not easy!

Youth need guidance on transition

from school to jobs.

Thousands of young people attending the Christchurch

Careers Expo over the next few days will be looking to

their future transition from school into the world of

work.

This is where the Careers

Expo presents an unparalleled

opportunity to connect directly

with those most able to provide

guidance and information needed

to make informed choices for the

journey ahead.

There are skills shortages aplenty in New Zealand.

The economy is tracking well, yet statistics show that

a lot of young people are still not finding work, with

unemployed aged between 15 and 24 at unacceptably

high levels.

Director of the Careers Expo Mark Gillard, does

not believe that these people aren’t interested in

work; he believes the problem stems from the crucial

transition between school and the workforce. Pointing

to international research carried out by the UK’s

Employers and Schools Taskforce Mr Gillard explains

that there needs to be an increase in interaction between

businesses and young people, when young adults are

still at school.

Their research entitled “It’s who you meet” found

that students from all demographics benefitted from

early interaction and engagement with business, being

considerably less likely to end up without a job, outside

of training or education”.

Each year around 160,000 Kiwi secondary school

students (years 10-13) make decisions about their careers

and life after school, such as where and what to study

and what they want to achieve in life. These are huge

decisions for young people, and the more information

we can provide to help make the best choices at this time

the better.

Being able to talk to someone ‘on the job’ or from an

industry body can help clarify many of the questions

that sit around the transition into the work force - What

is it really like to work in a particular sector? What are

the costs of training? How long will it take and will there

be a job for me at the end of my training?

Connecting with tertiary training organisations,

industry groups and future employers, is so important

for young people to do. It is never too early to start

thinking about their future and take advantage of the

opportunity to connect directly with future employers.

The Careers Expo and The World of Work provide the

ideal opportunity for young people and their families to

scope out the wide range of opportunities that exist, and

to talk about future plans.

Holden on track

with cheeky Trax

Best

Motorbuys

TM

Below is a small

selection of our

great deals!

To advertise in Best Motorbuys, phone Lea Godfrey 021 277 3086

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S NO secret Holden will

cease manufacturing operations

in Australia towards

the end of this year.

While many will lament

the passing of the iconic

vehicles for which we have

come to love down under,

the good news is that

Holden on both sides of

the Tasman has a vision for

the future, and slowly but

surely that plan is coming

to fruition.

Effectively, it means all

Holden vehicles will be

sourced from other global

manufacturing sites, as the

plan unfolds a lot of our

Holden-badged product

will come from Europe

and the United States and

already we are seeing, several

models land here from

Korea.

Notably, Holden have

introduced a new Barina

and Trax. An evaluation

on the Barina will appear

in these columns soon, this

evaluation focuses on the

Trax, a small sport utility

vehicle which is based on

the Barina platform.

When I say SUV,

the Trax can’t really be

described as a genuine allrounder,

it is two-wheeldrive

(front) only, but it

looks the part with its big

18in wheels and chunky

styling cues.

The Trax lands here in

three specification levels,

all have the same 1.4-litre

turbocharged four-cylinder

engine and share a sixspeed

automatic gearbox,

that being the only driveline

in the new model.

The engine is rated with

103kW and 200Nm of

power and torque outputs.

The beauty of modern turbocharging

techniques is to

enhance low down engine

power without sacrificing

fuel economy. Peak power

is realised at just 4900rpm

and maximum torque is

available at 1850rpm, these

figures are enviable. Even

though overall engine

capacity is low at 1364cc,

it feels strong from early in

the rev band, and punch

through the mid-range

encourages lively acceleration.

The six-speeder is

a classy gearbox with

smooth, quick shifts and

ratios which extract well

engine power and levelling

out to produce relaxed

engine motion at highway

speed.

HOLDEN TRAX: Developed for down under conditions.

Holden claim a 6.7-litre

per 100km/h (42mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

rating, which sat well with

my 8l/100km (35mpg)

evaluation average. Given

that I tend to explore turbo

boost just to feel engine

urgency, these figures are

quite respectable. The

boost isn’t overly punchy,

but it is still there to be felt

and if you give the throttle

a bit of encouragement

at take-off a standstill to

100km/h time of around

10sec can be expected.

• Price – Holden Trax

LTZ, $36,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4257mm; width,

1776mm; height,

1674mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1364cc, 103kW,

200Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

• Fuel usage –

6.7l/100km

At that speed the trip

computer lists a 4.8l/100km

(58mpg) instantaneous fuel

usage figure, which is frugal

and reinforces my statement

about economy.

Not only does the Trax

feel sprightly, it also sits

tidily on the road. While

the suspension is quite simplistic

with its front strut,

and rear tube beam tying

the rear wheel hubs together,

the handling sensation

is one of competence.

Holden has done a lot of

development on Korean

cars for our market and it

certainly shows, the Trax is

accurate in a corner and it

doesn’t rely on the tyres to

maintain grip.

On that subject, the

18in Michelin rubber

(215/55) has quiet riding

properties and affords

genuine feedback through

the steering wheel. The

suspension has spring and

damper rates which are

set quite soft, if you add in

the height of the Trax at

(1.67m) gravitational

forces would ordinarily

work against good

suspension control.

However, the Trax is

balanced and responds

capably when presented

with a quick corner or two.

In an everyday role, it

feels light and nimble, it

has manoeuvrability which

fits well if dropping the

kids off to school or tackling

the supermarket car

park, that will appeal to

those who want the vehicle

for the role in which it is

primarily designed.

It is cosy inside, but for

four adults it is comfortable

and has a relaxed seating

position, it would be fine

for three children across

the rear but two car seats

would certainly fill the rear

seat widthwise. Behind sits

a 356-litre cargo carrying

area extending to 785-litres

with the rear seats folded

flat.

The Trax lands here in

three variations depending

on specification. The entrylevel

LS sits at $32,990

which is an economical

starting point into an

SUV, the mid-range LT is

$35,490, while the LTZ as

tested has all the bells and

whistles at $36,990. Major

features include leather

trim with heated front

seats, MyLink infotainment

system, cruise control,

electric sunroof, keyless

entry and ignition and

a full suite of safety kit

which earns it a five-star

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program

rating.

Holden knows it has to

provide buyers here with

quality product, akin to

what we have always related

to with the brand. The

Trax, and the car it is based

on, have carved out a good

reputation here for reliability,

the newcomer lives up

to that reputation.

In Brief

MAISTER’S OLYMPIC ORDER

Selwyn Maister has received the

Olympic Order of New Zealand. It

was presented at the New Zealand

Olympic Committee’s annual

general meeting last week. Maister

represented New Zealand in

hockey at three Olympic Games,

and was part of the gold medal

winning team at Montreal in

1976. He went on to become a

coach, administrator and mentor

for hockey in Canterbury and

nationally. In addition to his

voluntary commitment to the New

Zealand Olympic Committee,

Maister has been a board member

of Paralympics New Zealand since

2008 and was appointed chairman

in 2014.

FOOTBALL’S CHATHAM CUP

The Mainland Premier League

takes a break on Saturday as the

Chatham Cup kicks off around the

country. League leaders Ferrymead

Bays will host second tier

competition front runners Selwyn

United. Cashmere Technical will

begin their run in the knock-out

competition they won in 2013 and

2014 by hosting Western AFC.

Five-time winner Christchurch

United will meet Nomads United

at English Park.

HEAP PERFORMS IN CHINA

Dylan Heap had a strong

showing at the China Junior

7 ITF tournament this week.

The 16-year-old made it to the

doubles final with Kiwi partner

Finley Hall, defeating several

junior players ranked in the top

200. Heap defeated second seed

Xinmu Zhou in the round of 16 to

make the singles quarter-finals. He

eventually fell to 10th seed Sheng

Tang 7-5, 3-6, 3-6.

GRAHAM MAKES NZ

TRIATHLON SQUAD

Ari Graham has been named

in the New Zealand team to

compete at the ITU world

triathlon championships in the

Netherlands. Graham, 18, is the

only Canterbury athlete in the

team of six juniors (under-19) who

will compete in September. She is a

former age group middle distance

and cross-country champion.

After competing in a couple of

school triathlons, she made the

decision late last year to dedicate

her time to triathlon. The

world championships will

take place in Rotterdam from

September 14-17.

RAMS FACE SHARKS

The Canterbury Rams return

to their home court at Cowles

Stadium on Sunday when they

host the Southland Sharks in the

NBL. They were lucky to make it

home following last Sunday’s game

against the Taranaki Mountainairs

after almost missing their flight

from New Plymouth on Sunday.

The Rams defeated Taranaki 90-71

then raced out of the building

at 4.50pm to catch their 5.38pm

flight.

Flatmates on international duty

• By Gordon Findlater

JOSH MCKAY, Tom Christie

and Will Jordan will soon trade

their homemade beans and eggs

on toast for the buffet at their

team hotel in Georgia.

The three flatmates will head

to Europe later this month after

being named in the New Zealand

squad for the world rugby

under-20 championship.

All three played for the New

Zealand under-20s in their 43-6

win over Australia to take out

the Oceania title at the weekend.

Christie started at flanker, Jordan

at fullback and McKay on

the wing. They’re also expected

to play a major role in Georgia.

“It was a good warm-up and

chance for us to bond ahead of

the world championship,” said

McKay.

The Northern Hemisphere

teams will bring a different

style, the likes of England and

France will both be tough to

beat.”

After coming through Canterbury’s

age group sides together,

they decided to move into their

Ilam flat in February, all sharing

the same goal of making the

New Zealand squad.

“It’s great in the sense that

we can do things like go down

to the park for kicks together

and car pool to the gym,” said

Jordan.

The flat is everything you

would expect for a group of

19-year-olds, with rugby boots

greeting you at the front door,

last night’s dishes waiting to be

cleaned in the kitchen and sport

playing on the lounge television.

In Georgia, they will be teammates.

However, that hasn’t

always been the case.

Only two years ago, the trio

were battling it out in the Crusaders

region secondary schools

competition. McKay and Jordan

played together at Christchurch

Boys’ High School and won the

UC Championship in 2014. In

2015, they were defeated in the

semi-final by Shirley Boys’ High

School who, at the time, were

captained by Christie.

Jordan and Christie are now

teammates at Christchurch,

which sit at the top of the division

one metro competition.

TOM PARKER will compete

against future PGA Tour stars at

next month’s junior world cup

in Japan.

Parker, 17, is the only new

addition to the four-strong

team which competed at last

year’s Junior Golf World Cup,

with Daniel Hillier, Wellington,

Henry Spring, Bay of Plenty,

and Inia Logan, Otago, all

returning.

Meanwhile, McKay plays for

defending champions Lincoln

University. The two teams meet

this weekend in a top-of-thetable

clash.

The Lincoln and Christchurch

rivalry is the bigger one

in the flat now. A little bit of

schoolboy chat gets chucked

around but . . . I get outnumbered

pretty quickly,” said

Christie.

The flat will have a different

look when they return from

the world championship, with

Jordan relocating to Nelson to

join Tasman in the Mitre 10

Cup.

There’s no need for the boys

to advertise a room, though.

Zack McKay, Josh’s cousin – a

promising young player in his

own right – will fill the void.

New Zealand has won the

annual under-20 tournament

on five occasions, with their

last victory in 2015. Their pool

matches will be against Scotland

on May 31, Italy on June 4 and

Ireland on June 8.

Parker to tee off for world title in Japan

High student has been in fine

form this year and finished

Lisone will reach his 50-game

milestone after debuting for the

club in 2015.

Kata was forced off in the first

half of the Anzac Day match

against the Melbourne Storm

with a hamstring injury, forcing

him to miss the last outing

against the Sydney Roosters as

well as ruling him out of last

week’s representative round.

He will return at left centre

edge.

Super Rugby’s leaving the Pacific Islands out in the cold

• By Gregor Paul

AS SUPER Rugby twists itself

in knots working out how it can

successfully reduce its size next

year, the greatest shame of all is

the door appears to be shut on the

Pacific Islands.

It has long been the greatest

travesty of Super Rugby that it has

ignored and actively rejected any

direct Pacific Island influence.

It feels even more so now that

the Sunwolves and Jaguares are

digging in for the long haul.

Why not put me

to the test

As I do stand out

from the rest

If you’re ready to

sell then so am I

So go ahead give

me a try!!!

Maybe things will get better

across the Tasman but that certainly

won’t happen quickly and

the South Pacific region would

be well advised to start seriously

building credible Super Rugby

alternatives outside of Australia.

If Samoa can be asked to come

to the rescue of the All Blacks by

agreeing at late notice to play a

test at Eden Park on June 16, then

why can’t they be asked to come

to the rescue of a Super Rugby

competition that is more desperately

in need of being saved?

The question needs to be asked

how it is that a team from Japan

and a team from Argentina are

firmly ensconced in Super Rugby

while the Islands are out in the

cold. The logic defies belief on all

fronts.

The geography is troubling.

Argentina is not an easy flight for

teams from any part of the world.

Its time difference is also an issue

and having one team in such

relative isolation adds significant

costs.

The same problem exists with

2017 SUPER 18

TiPPing ComPETi T ion

RoUnD 12 May 12 th & 13 th

bRUmbIES V LIONS

CRUSadERS V hURRICaNES

the Sunwolves. Next year they will

play in the Australian conference

and the logistics of that are going

to be tedious.

Crazy when the islands are

right there, smack bang in the

right part of the Pacific Ocean

to make them an easy hop from

both Australia and New Zealand.

Crazy when the islands have

the infrastructure these days to

successfully accommodate and

host teams.

The Chiefs and Crusaders

are playing in Fiji this year and

Thursday May 11 2017

the Blues will take on the Reds

in Apia. This effort to include

and embrace the islands is to be

welcomed, but it shouldn’t disguise

the fact that Samoa and Fiji

deserve more involvement than

one game each.

A team from that part of the

world could bring explosive

power and high-quality rugby

that may not necessarily be an

immediate winning formula but

will at least be genuinely entertaining

and challenging to play

against.
