BRUTALLY BASHED

Jess’ night of horror

‘One more hit

and he would

have killed her

I think’ - police

This is how Jess Setu (above) looks this week. But about a year ago it was a completely different

story – she was brutally attacked by her estranged husband Lealofi Setu (above right) with a piece of

wood in what has been described as a shocking case of domestic violence. On pages 8 and 9 Jess

talks candidly about the attack, what led up to it and the reason she is speaking out.

security at

McCaw’s

wedding

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Andrew King

THE MAN charged with

robbing two Canterbury bars

and a double shooting in

Rolleston was a security guard

at Richie and Gemma McCaw’s

wedding.

The Star has learned the

23-year-old was working at

the wedding of the former All

Blacks captain and former

Black Sticks player in January,

at The Olive Grove in Wanaka.

When contacted by The Star

yesterday Gemma McCaw said:

“I don’t want to comment on

that.”

Richie McCaw’s agent Dean

Hegan said because it was

before the courts, he could not

comment.

The 23-year-old has been

charged in relation to the

shooting of a mother and

daughter at a Rolleston address

on April 19, seriously injuring

both, before the armed robbery

of Hotel Ashburton later that

night.

He has also been charged

with the robbery of the

Springston Hotel on April 6.

Shots were fired in both holdups.

He is currently being held in

custody. He has interim name

suppression.

Police say further charges

could be laid in relation to other

hotel robberies in Christchurch.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News....................................3-24

THERE’S BEEN huge reaction

to last week’s article suggesting

Hagley Park’s Hospital Corner

could be used as a temporary

car park to alleviate the

Christchurch Hospital car

parking crisis.

Most people we spoke to are

for the idea, even the rebuild’s

new boss Nicky Wagner.

So we have coverage on pages

3, 12, 13, 14 and 15 today, giving

everyone from the city’s leaders

to the man and woman in the

street a voice.

The silence, though, from

Mayor Lianne Dalziel has been

deafening – she refuses to be

drawn on an opinion of what she

thinks of the idea.

Sorry Lianne, but the city

deserves to know what you think

on this issue; you are after all

Christchurch’s commander in

chief.

Others have stated their opinion

whether it be for or against.

The hospital car parking

situation affects thousands . . .

it would be good to know what

the mayor thinks, and more importantly,

what immediate plans

there are to sort the problem.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

A bus service to Timaru began on May 16, 1904. On May 18, 1881,

Christchurch Boys’ High School (designed by W. B. Armson) opened

in Worcester St. The school moved to the present Straven Rd site in

1926, and the old building is now part of the Arts Centre. On the same

day in 1940 Harewood Airport is opened. It was soon to be taken over

by the RNZAF for the duration of World War 2. On May 19, 1910,

Halley’s Comet was visible by telescope in night sky. Prophesies of doom

and superstition abounded while the comet was visible. On May 21,

1865, the first news telegram was sent over the new line from Bluff to

Christchurch. On May 21, 1866, the city council abandoned the vital city

drainage scheme because of its financial state. A huge shipment of pipes

which had just arrived from England had to be sold off. This guaranteed

Christchurch’s reputation as New Zealand’s most polluted and unhealthy

city for another 20 years.

SPORT 38

HUNGRY WOOD PIGEONS ARE BACK

THe distinctive noise and colours

of the kererū, New Zealand wood

pigeon, will be a common sight

around the city over the next few

weeks. The birds are currently

forging a flight path across the

city foraging for late autumn,

early winter meals in gardens and

parks. They normally spend their

time in the city near the Botanic

Gardens and Riccarton Bush, but

they have now been spotted as

far away as Abberley Park in St

Albans.

Final chance for Santa Parade funding

• By Gabrielle Stuart

SANTA PARADE organisers

will have a last ditch chance

to plead their case for funding

before Mayor Lianne Dalziel

and the city councillors next

week.

The parade has run in

Christchurch every year for

more than 70 years, but because

of a funding cut the money for

the parade is set to run out

• By Gabrielle Stuart

NEW GREATER Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Nicky

Wagner has supported using

Hagley Park for temporary

hospital car parking,

calling it “logical.”

The idea has been discussed

by the Canterbury

District Health Board

as a temporary solution

to the growing parking

problems around the

hospital.

But both mayor Lianne

Dalziel and CDHB chief

executive David Meates

have dismissed it, saying

it is not something they

are considering.

But a street poll and

questions to health board

members and other

public figures by The Star

this week suggest the

pair are out of touch (see

pages 12, 13, 14, 15).

Mrs Wagner said using Hagley

park’s Hospital Corner as a

temporary solution to the car

parking crisis the idea was logical,

and she would like to see it

considered.

“I live close to Hagley Park and

walk through it and it’s often just

a large empty space, so I’d like to

see it used,” she said.

However, she said she would

be “really careful” about what a

proposal might look like and the

limits set around it.

next month.

The Christchurch Santa

Parade Trust may then be forced

to sell its floats, as it will be

unable to pay rent on the float

storage warehouse.

The parade organisers

were initially told it was too late

to include money for the parade

in this year’s city council

annual plan, but they have

been allowed to make a

late submission.

She planned to encourage all

the agencies involved, including

the city council and Government,

to collaborate and look at all

options, including Hagley Park,

she said.

Mr Meates told The Star

last week the idea was

“not being considered,

and it is not going to be as

it’s not an option”.

He then told other media

after The Star article

appeared: “We are really

conscious about the sensitivities

of Hagley Park.

There is a lot of strongly

held views around Hagley

Park.”

Mr Meates is on leave

and could not be reached

for comment about the

reaction to The Star

article.

CDHB acting chief

executive Mary Gordon

said it was “not for us to

look into” because it would need

to be driven by the city council

and Government.

Ms Dalziel did not alter her

stance this week – a city council

spokeswoman saying that the

mayor’s comments in The Star

last week stood. Ms Dalziel

would not give a personal opinion

on the use of Hagley Park

for temporary hospital parking,

and it was not something she

was considering putting to the

council.

They will present their case

for funding in a public city

council hearing on Monday

at 5pm, where they will be

backed by Canterbury

Employers’ Chamber of

Commerce chief executive Peter

Townsend.

The financial problems escalated

after the city council cut

its funding grant from $97,750

to $69,000 last year, forcing

the trust to use money from its

reserves to pay for last year’s

parade.

That left funds too short to

pay the bills this year.

The parade is paid for through

a mix of sponsorship and both

city council and private funding

grants.

It costs about $200,000 each

year to run the parade, which

includes rent, insurance, maintenance

and a wage for one paid

organiser.

In Brief

AMBER LIGHT TRIAL

A consultancy firm has been

tasked with looking into an idea

to alter the amber traffic signal

by up to a second in a bid to

curb the city’s red light-running

problem. Christchurch Transport

Operations Centre manager

Ryan Cooney said the firm would

also plan and run trials. As part

of the project, the length of the

amber traffic signal could be

changed by up to 1sec. It currently

sits between 3.5sec and 5.2sec,

depending on the speed limit and

the intersection’s width.

MURDER TRIAL

Christchurch man Marcus

Tucker may have been murdered

because of confusion caused by

a nickname, the High Court in

Christchurch heard yesterday.

Peter Carroll is on trial for the

murder of Mr Tucker, whose body

was found by Lake Ellesmere in

April last year. Crown Prosecutor

Claire Boshier told the court an

associate of Carroll was robbed

at gunpoint for drugs early last

year, and one of the robbers was

rumoured to be called “Ruckus”.

That was Mr Tucker’s nickname,

but he was not involved in the

robbery. The trial is set to run for

two and a half weeks.

HOUSE PRICES DROP

THe Christchurch median house

price dropped slightly last month

to $459,100, down from $468,000

in March, according to a Real

Estate Institute NZ report. The

number of properties sold in

Christchurch also dropped, from

685 in March, to 473 last month. It

showed Selwyn topped the house

prices in Canterbury last month

with a $550,000 median price.

You can’t see it, but you

can hear the difference!

Point of difference in two new

ENTERING A dry cleaners shop

like a scene out of a James Bond

But it will soon be reality in

Christchurch when Red Light

Businessman and developer

Jason Whitelaw has just opened

Louis, a champagne and oyster

bar on Victoria St.

Red Light District will be

in the same building, and is

expected to open on June 8.

The $1 million bars have been

more than a year in the making

for Mr Whitelaw.

He had taken five trips to

Australia and two to Hong Kong

them.

He said the key to success was

having a point of difference and

hard work.

“Some come into hospitality

all starry-eyed expecting to have

a great time and an easy lifestyle.

They quickly learn that the late

nights are not about parties and

good times, but plain hard slog.

anything for about 10 years now.

I saw an opening in the market

in Christchurch.”

Different place, same result for hoarder

• By Bridget Rutherford

HE GOES by the name of Pastor

Philip – but he’s not spreading

good will among his new

neighbours.

The man, believed to be Philip

May, has moved to a new home

on Sydenham’s Ruskin St.

He previously lived on the

corner of Harman St and Grove

Rd in Addington,

where he sparked

complaints and

a city council investigation

about

his belongings

impeding the

footpath.

Philip May

Over the past

month, he has

been moving

trailer loads of items, including

old chairs, mattresses, wood and

scrap metal, onto his new rental

property and the grass berm

outside.

He said the items were donated,

and he took them once a

week to Annex Metals to collect

money to give to charity.

Other items were used to help

provide shelter after disasters

both here and overseas under

his group, May Mission New

Zealand, he said.

But neighbours say the “junk”

sitting next to the footpath outside

was making the street look

messy. They want it moved.

Mr May told The Star it was

only sitting outside his property

temporarily.

“I’m making some space so

that some of the stuff impeding

the gate and the fence can be

moved in.”

He said he had to move out of

his previous home because it was

earmarked for demolition.

City council acting head of

regulatory compliance Claire

Le Grice said it had received

one complaint in relation to the

accumulation of material at his

new property.

“This matter is under investigation

She said his belongings in his

backyard were pushing against

Mr May said she was sticking

her nose into his business.

However, the neighbour said

the wood scraps and metal sitting

outside his property made the

street look like a dump, and other

residents thought the same.

Victim speaks out after brutal

Jess Setu is speaking out about the night

she was brutally beaten at the hands of her

estranged husband. Andrew King reports

3AM, FRIDAY, May 20, 2016,

Jess Setu is sound asleep, her

4-year-old daughter tucked up

beside her, and her other two

daughters aged 12 and 10 in other

rooms.

Outside, her angry estranged

husband and father of her children,

Lealofi Setu, 40, is about to

enter the

house with

a piece of

wood.

The goal:

To do as

much damage

to Jess,

32, as he possibly can.

He slips in the back door,

possibly with a key, turns off

lights left on so the children can

see their way to the bathroom,

and heads straight to Jess’

bedroom.

The attack is brutal and savage.

Setu is in a rage.

“I remember just being

smacked really hard and I just

started screaming,” she told The

Star this week after Setu was

sentenced to five years jail for the

attack on Monday.

Jess said initially she had no

idea of who her attacker was. All

she could think about was getting

the assailant out of the house,

away from her children.

“All I thought was, s**t, my

youngest is in

bed with me,

I have to get

out of here. I

was aiming

to get to that

front door

. . . because

I knew, if I could get there, this

person is going to follow me, they

will be away from my kids, and I

will be on the street where people

can hear me,” she said.

But she couldn’t get up because

the blows kept raining down.

Miraculously, her 4-year-old

was not struck in the flurry of

blows, and even slept through the

ordeal.

The attack only stopped when

I remember just being

smacked really hard and I

just started screaming.

violence and giving her children a childhood free from

violence.

Her 10-year-old pleaded for

the attack to stop. It was then

the 10-year-old realised who the

attacker was – her father.

Jess thinks it was her 10-yearold’s

pleas that stopped the

attack, and Setu fled.

It was only when the 12-yearold

rang for an ambulance

moments later, that Jess became

aware the attacker was Setu.

Said Jess: “I said grab mummy’s

phone I need to go to the

hospital, I need to call your dad,”

Her 10-year-old replied: “Mum,

it was dad.”

Jess’ face was covered in blood,

so she took a selfie to see how bad

it was.

The signs that something was

not right with Setu had emerged

15 hours earlier.

Jess was at netball with her

children when Setu turned up

and tried to kiss her.

They had been separated for

about seven months after Jess had

left him. They had shared custody

of the children.

Setu left the netball after she

rebuffed him.

“I said: ‘No, we have split up. I

don’t feel the same way about you

anymore. We are over’.”

Setu then tried to kiss her

again. Jess told him to back-off

and he left in a “big huff and

puff.”

A short time later, Setu phoned

Jess with an ominous threat:

“Your beauty is only going to last

so long and I can take it from

you,” Jess said he told her.

​Setu called her again after her

rugby training demanding to

know where she was.

“He rings me and says where

“I asked how did he get out

because he was locked inside the

house, the only way he could get

out is if someone let him out.

“He said where the f**k are

morning.

“I said I know they have school

in the morning, leave us alone.”

The children were with Jess.

Rex her german shepherd

disappeared that night and hasn’t

been seen since. She has her theories

on what happened to him.

Jess believes she would have

died in the attack if her children

had not intervened.

She had suffered numerous

gashes to her face, most of which

were down to the bone.

Doctors had to pull splinters

out of her skull, her left eye was

swollen shut and her left eyebrow

was split in two. She also had

several defensive wounds on her

arms and her right hand where

she had tried to block the blows

being rained down on her.

She spent a week in hospital.

Jess’ face is scarred which troubles

her considerably.

“It is hard because I look in the

mirror and I see scars every day.

And every time I see the scars, I

see him,” she said breaking down

into tears.

“I don’t want to see him, but I

do and there is nothing I can do

about it.

“People say you can hardly

notice them, but I can. He has

succeeded in making me ugly as

such, because for the past year, I

have felt that and that is what he

wanted. He wanted to destroy me

as a person.

“That’s what he has left me

with, he has left me with scars.”

Jess, who is Australian, met

Setu in Brisbane at a church

programme.

“We started messaging and fell

in love. It wasn’t the whole whirlwind

romance with sparks flying.

We were compatible at the time

and now here we are,” she said.

They married in November

2003 and moved to Christchurch

in April 2013 for work. Setu was a

painter/plasterer.

They separated in October 2015

and were divorced last month –

while Setu was in

custody awaiting

sentence.

She had taken out

a protection order

against him in January

2016.

She doesn’t regret

meeting or marrying

him because she

has “three beautiful

children” out of it.

Jess has decided

to go public about

her ordeal to show

the public how

brutal domestic

violence can be and

the tragedy it leaves

behind.

“I’ll be a voice

that people will

eventually want to

tell to shut up,” she said of her

determination to keep domestic

violence in the public eye.

“Don’t be scared about going

ECan spent

$5m

on comms

• By Bridget Rutherford

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury

spent more than $5 million on

communicating with the public and

within the organisation in the last

financial year.

Data released under the Local

Government Official Information

and Meetings Act showed over the

2015-16 financial year, ECan spent

$5,620,391 on its communications

and external relations department.

The figure had jumped from

$3,422,727 in the 2010-11 financial

year.

ECan said that made up staff

wages, communications advice,

promotional design and production,

printing and advertising, web development,

photography and video,

media monitoring, market research

and behaviour change, and sponsorship

and community events.

It also included operational

expenses such as travel, phones,

learning and development, and

stationery.

On top of that, the figures show

it spent $147,626 on external public

relations, compared to $38,085 in

2010-2011.

That was for when “one-off”

pieces of communication work

were done by external contractors,

or for when “specialist skills” were

required.

ECan communications manager

Tafflyn Bradford-James said during

the 2015-16 financial year, there

were 22.6 full-time equivalent staff.

They covered roles including web

design, graphic design and print

production, youth engagement,

internal and external communications,

media liaison, marketing and

behaviour change campaigns, and

industry and stakeholder engagement.

Nine of those were communications

advisers.

Ms Bradford-James said as part of

a restructure earlier this year, it now

had an allocation of 25 FTE staff in

the section.

She said at present, only 21 of

those FTEs were filled.

Heartfelt bid to keep teens safe

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PARENTS OF two of the three

teenagers killed in a high-speed

crash have reached out to high

school students in a bid to

get them to think about the

consequences of their road

safety choices.

Samuel Drost, Cole Hull and

Lily Moore – all aged 15 – died

late on Christmas Day, when a

car they were passengers in failed

to take a corner and crashed into

trees near Southbridge.

The 14-year-old unlicensed

driver has pleaded guilty to

causing the deaths of the three

teenagers as well as causing injury

to a fourth passenger in the

car at the Christchurch Youth

Court recently.

As part of a road safety

programme, a moving talk

from parents Marcus Moore

and Tracey Drost was made at

Meteorologists are expecting

National Institute of Water

and Atmosphere forecasting

said it was too early to predict

what the full winter forecast

would be.

But he said the beginning of

June would be on the “milder

side.”

He said the average maximum

temperature in Christchurch

in June was 12 deg C, with the

average minimum 1.9 deg C.

could be slightly warmer.

councillors were there for support.

“We felt it was important, they

were aware of the reality of what

can happen as many of them

were off-course because of the

connection,” he said.

Samuel attended Lincoln

High, while Lily was a student at

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

and Cole went to Ellesmere

College.

Mr Rout said the time since

the accident had been tough

school has support in place.

talking to the students as both

drivers and passengers.

“You do have responsibility as

a passenger to assist the driver

and not distract them,” he said.

•For more information on

RYDA go to http://www.

proactivedrive.org.nz/

He said because NIWA’s

forecasts were based on precipitation,

it was difficult to say

whether we could expect much

snow this winter.

“It would appear that early in

June if you are having slightly

milder temperatures, there may

be a slightly lower chance for

snowfall up on the ranges.”

MetService meteorologist Lisa

Murray said in the short-term

heading into winter the weather

was looking normal.

“We are going to get some

cooler temperatures and that is

quite normal.”

She said MetService could

only predict the short-term forecast,

so could not give an overall

view of what we can expect from

the season.

Next week would be slightly

drier than normal for this time

of the year, she said.

Hospital car parking

Last week The Star asked whether part of

Hagley Park should be sealed for a temporary

Christchurch Hospital car park. Here is what city

leaders, readers and the public had to say

Your local paper - keeping our future generations informed

HOSPITAL CAR

PARKING CRISIS

Megan Woods

- Labour

Canterbury Issues

spokeswoman:

“Controversy

usually causes

delay, so there

is no point

embarking on a

proposal when all

the signals you’re

receiving are

that you‘re going

to get bogged

down in a huge

public debate.

Let’s instead be

pragmatic about

this and think

about solutions

that will fix the

problem without

causing a big

argument.

Martin Meehan –

Hands Off Hagley

spokesman:

This is temporary

and for the greater

good so I wouldn’t

be out there with

placards. Logic

would say yes,

it’s an ideal spot

to use, but you

have to say for

goodness sake

where is the

planning around

parking? This

should never have

been allowed to

happen.

Anna Crighton

– health board

member:

I would approve of

it with conditions:

That there would

be no permanent

asphalting,

that it was a set,

finite period, and

with security. I do

understand that

Hagley Park is

sacrosanct, but

there are times

kicks in and it is

needed, so long

as it is temporary

and reversible.

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

Fujitsu HOt Heat Pump HOt Deal

at a HOt HOt Price

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.

We do have a parking problem but

that is not the solution. The park is

Facts about Hagley Park

Duncan Webb

- Labour Christchurch

Central

candidate:

There is merit in

considering it. If

this is the best

option for the next

three years let’s

not be precious

about it, but let’s

also ask what

other sites in the

area are not going

to be used for the

next three years,

because I believe

there are a few.

Deon Swiggs

- Christchurch

Central Ward city

councillor:

In principal I’m

not against but

I’m not for it as a

knee-jerk reaction.

My biggest gripe

is that we just

spent $1.2 million

upgrading it. [Mr

Meates] could

have come and

asked us, and

options were

available. If

we’d had that

conversation

before we spent

all this money

on redoing the

grounds, the

conversation

could have been

different.

Simon Templeton

- Age Concern

chief executive:

The park and ride

is really good

service but it isn’t

usable for people

who have even

just moderate

mobility issues,

so a solution is

needed for the

short, medium

and long term.

There were strong

opinions both

ways even just

around the office

this morning, but

that’s no reason to

avoid a debate.

Christin Watson

- NZ Nurses

Organisation

Christchurch

organiser:

We don’t think

it needs to be

considered,

because there’s

plenty of land

around that

could be used for

something like

a park and ride

scheme. We see

more medium

to longer term

options being

needed, because

it’s going to take

a long time to get

a parking building

built.

Trish Adams -

CDHB Consumer

Council

chairwoman:

The fields

on the corner

were recently

regrassed and it’s

looking superb

so it would be

a shame to dig

it up, but I think

in amongst the

trees would be

an imminently

suitable location,

and it would be

away from the

playing fields and

the area used

for the rescue

helicopter.

Yani Johanson -

city councillor:

Council

has spent a

considerable

amount of

money repairing

and upgrading

the sports fields

on the Hospital

Corner, so I don’t

think people

would be keen

to see that

money wasted

for a temporary

car park. Any

money spent is

better going into

the permanent

solution.

•More reaction, pages 14 and 15

•Why hasn’t a permanent parking

building been built?

Land has been set aside for a

hospital parking building on Antigua

St. But the site is used for services like

the hospital boilers, so it cannot be

cleared until they can be moved to

new buildings. That is set to take about

three years.

•Who is responsible for building it?

The Ministry of Health appointed

Hospital Redevelopment Partnership

Group. The CDHB does not get any

funding for car parking, and the money

it has already spent on services like the

Park and Ride has had to come out of

it’s budgets for health services.

•Is using Hagley Park for parking

legal?

The Christchurch City Reserves

Empowering Act 1971 classes Hagley

park a “Reserve for recreation

purposes”. It has a section specifically

about parking, where it says the city

council shall not “appropriate any part

of Hagley Park for parking places for

vehicles” without the consent of the

Minister of Conservation.

But a spokeswoman for Minister of

Conservation Maggie Barry said that

would not apply because it would be

“classed as a temporary use and as

such would not need the minister’s

consent.”

Hagley Park has been temporarily

used for other things before,

including for hospital parking after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake, and to

commercially grow potatoes during the

Great Depression in the 1930s.

The Star

Hospital car parking

Readers respond to last

week’s article on whether

Hagley Park’s Hospital

Corner could be used to

temporary alleviate the

Christchurch Hospital car

parking crisis

Glenis Haley – For many

years now, I have been at a loss

to understand why Hagley Park

has not been mooted as a car

park for patients and visitors

at the Christchurch Hospital.

Obviously the ‘powers that be’

have never been either a patient,

especially on an outpatient basis,

or a visitor to very sick friends or

relatives.

My husband and I have,

unfortunately, been regular outpatients

attending Christchurch

Hospital over the past years and

parking our vehicle has become

a real nightmare, especially since

the earthquakes and the new

construction on the site.

Recently, we have been using

the Park and Ride car park in

Deans Ave, but it is not always

satisfactory for us elderly people,

especially when it is raining

and the puddles in the car park

are very deep and the surface is

definitely not fit for purpose. The

wait for the shuttle (at both ends)

is not convenient for the sick and

elderly either.

I feel very passionate about the

use of part of Hagley Park opposite

the hospital for parking, even

if it is only on a temporary basis

until enough permanent parks

can be supplied.

A decision on this proposal is

required urgently especially as

winter is upon us and the problem

seems to be getting worse.

Jenny Williams – Hagley

Park should absolutely not be

used for temporary hospital

parking. Already the park has

been eroded for the new hospital

building. Hagley Park should

be sacrosanct and not gradually

eaten away, whether it is for a

permanent or temporary car

park. There is plenty of room in

the old sale yards.

In addition, many trees in

that area of the park were lost

following the earthquake, we

can’t afford to lose more due to

compaction over their root area

that is likely to be caused by cars.

Shirley Coffey – I think

we should be building a new

multi-storied car park on Hagley

Park. It should be plant covered

and have a roof top garden that

is open to all to use. This would

also help to cover parking for

sports at the park.

Don’t just do a temporary fix

build something that we can all

enjoy for its plant covered beauty

and show us the way some of the

big cities in this world can make

beautiful green spaces from what

would be an ugly building.

Phyllis Parker – I think

Hagley Park should be used for

temporary parking. We need

a safe place for nursing staff to

park and relieve the stress of

finding a park to visit loved ones.

It can be returned to its park

setting in the future. Since the

earthquakes we as Cantabrians

are used to compromises. Just

do it.

Murray Spackman – If

there is a possibility that a

temporary arrangement could

be arrived at that allows car

parking closer to the hospital

with say 120min limits to ensure

that it is available for short-term

visiting I believe it would be very

beneficial for Christchurch while

current rebuilding continues.

This is currently a major

issue for hospital visitors that

would take some heat off the

current car park on Deans Ave

and would need to be available

for three years at least until the

current rebuild is finished. Well

done for bringing this up for

discussion.

Shona Tooley – As an

oncology patient I find that

the parking is shocking at the

hospital.

We would love to see Hagley

used for parking. Bad enough

having to go there for appointments,

finding a car park adds to

the stress.

Yes, yes, yes, we need the park.

Mary Wynn-Williams – Yes

I have wondered why no one has

mentioned this before.

It would be a brilliant temporary

solution to the hospital

parking problem.

Diane Brenchley – No way

. . . Hagley Park was a gift to

the people of Christchurch for

recreation not car parking. Yes

I’ve had to park miles away to

use the hospital too but still

rather do that than start carving

up our treasured park.

Peggy Pickworth – Once

they start on Hagley Park there

will be no stopping them. Poor

town planning is what has

caused the problem. Why do we

have to have a sport centre built

so near the hospital. Ideal area

for a car park.

Steph Thorpe – I think

if there is going to be temp

carpark it needs to be for staff

only and they need a pass,

otherwise it will just be full of

anyone working in the city that

have to park further away at the

moment (and I am not staff, just

saying).

Mike Smith – We have so

much flat property land available.

Make this a priority and

allocate existing property land

to it. Get your town planning

right and it will be fine. Once

converted from a park, there

will be no going back . . . ever.

Emma Reeves – Temporary

parking was used in Hagley

Park following the February 22,

2011, earthquake its unfortunate

this could not remain as it was

ideal. There is a huge area near

the horticulture centre towards

Deans Ave that is hiding behind

the trees . . . there are huge dirt

piles . . . would be ideal place for

some parking and no one would

really be able to see it from the

road. Parking is definitely a huge

issue for staff looking after your

loved ones but also for relatives

and patients who should not

have to stress about finding a

car park to visit their loved ones

or attend appointments! This

stressful issue needs sorting out.

Staff do the best they can with

either biking or taking the bus

or like myself and park and do

a 20min walk, but it’s less than

ideal for shift workers.

Cherry Cornelius – Yes for

God’s sake yes, the only thing

surprising about asking if it’s

a good option is that it hadn’t

been done years ago. Enough

bloody talking and build a

decent car park in Hagley Park.

We need it desperately.

Sarah Williams – I say yes.

To many, Wilson car parking

is a joke. Staff at Christchurch

Hospital need this, and surveillance.

How big is Hagley Park

and, what if the have to give up

some land for a “short time,” its

land, do what’s right.

Bernsa Laurie – Yes! There

is much more open red zone

land that we could use as parks

and sports grounds that have

much better accessibility and

parking. If you did it as a trade –

one green area for another, that

could work.

Jill Allott – No. Hagley park

needs to stay as a people park

– forever! No temporary car

parks there ever. For goodness

sake . . . most of the rest of the

old Christchurch is a car park.

Never take a beautiful place and

make it into a car park. Surely to

goodness your planners have a

modicum of planning.

Reporter Ashleigh Monk asks people going to Christchurch Hospital what they thought of the parking situation

and whether using Hagley Park was a good idea. To watch the video at www.star.kiwi

Bruce Matthews,

retiree,

Beckenham:

As much as I

don’t want to

see it being used

for vehicles and

stuff, I think as

a temporary

measure for a

couple of years,

most definitely it

would help a lot

of people.

Chris Lyons,

service deli

assistant, New

Brighton:

It would save

us having to

walk; [my wife]

is pregnant, so it

would help her

. . . let’s say if she

went into labour

and I had to go

and find a car

park, and I missed

the birth . . . what

am I meant to do?

Jenny Lodge,

handyperson/

gardener, South

New Brighton:

It’s quite a way

to walk. We’ve

come in an hour

early just in case

we couldn’t get

parked anywhere,

so it would be

good.

John Calvert,

teacher, Halswell:

I think that would

be a very good

idea, because

there are lots of

people coming

in and out. I

mean, I’m only in

for a very quick

appointment, I’m

coming for work

and I want to be

able to get in and

out quickly, and

the last time I was

here I spent 30min

finding a park. It

was awful.

John Groome,

carpenter,

Woodend:

Yes, because it’s

very hard trying

to get a park

without having to

walk a couple of

kilometres.

Kent Myers,

unemployed,

Ferrymead:

It depends what

happens to the

park. I’d like to

keep the park as

a park . . . but it

[parking situation]

is a lot harder than

what I remember.

Peter Lodge,

handyman/

gardener, South

New Brighton:

It’s always a

difficult one with

parking and

everything . . . for

a big hospital, not

being able to park

nearby is not so

easy. At least we

can walk to it, but

for elderly people

and things like

that, it’s a bit more

difficult.

Beris Whelan,

retiree, Illam:

Hagley Park is so

sacrosanct for

this whole city,

and it must not

be interfered with

anymore. It would

be a disaster . . .

they’ll have to find

other alternatives,

there are plenty

of places where

they could have a

car park.

David Lloyd – Why not

use the city council staff car

park in Hereford St as it is

close to hospital. It is a vast

expanse. City council is trying

to get citizens to ride a bike or

use the bus to get to work. So

let’s see the city council lead

the way and let the hospital

use this car park. I am sure

the mayor, councillors and

council staff will give up

their ratepayer funded car

parks and ride or get a bus to

work instead so that hospital

visitors, patients and staff can

have a handy park.

Marilyn Thornton – Yes,

Hagley park is good enough

for the new cricket ground

it’s good enough for hospital

parking. The free bus service

from Deans Ave is brilliant, a

big thank you to the hospital

board for putting on the free

bus, only pay for parking, it’s

only about a 5min van ride,

and it’s cheap but Christchurch

needs parking close to

the hospital.

Anna Henderson – That’s

exactly why people opposed

the cricket stadium being

allowed to go in the park, because

they knew that it would

set a precedent and soon every

bloody thing would be taking

a piece of the park. Now

there’s no leg to stand on to say

no to people wanting a piece

of it because everyone can say

“well they let the cricket people

do it, why not us?” We’ll

have no park left soon.

Corner into parking, you

are losing soccer, cricket and

it for some relatives of patients

who have to drive more than

100km, or over 65.

. . . if people are

there’s not thousands

better.

The Star

Viewpoint

ONE OF the first things I did

as Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

was commit to keeping the

community as up-to-date as

possible on the regeneration

process.

As Minister, I’m provided a

great deal of data about how the

regeneration is progressing.

The information comes from

a variety of sources and covers

every aspect of life in greater

Christchurch, including housing,

employment, education, wellbeing

and infrastructure.

I want to ensure this data is

readily available so we all know

where we’re making progress,

and in some case, where we’re

falling short. The 2010 and 2011

quakes altered our path forever,

so we’re not always going to align

with what’s happening in other

regions, or even nationally.

The first data snapshot Greater

Christchurch Dashboard — Housing

was released over the weekend

and features average house

price and weekly rental cost data

Nicky Wagner

Keeping people informed

from the Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employment.

It shows the average weekly

rental cost dropped from $400 in

April 2016 to $386 in April 2017.

At its peak, the average weekly

rental cost rose to $437 postearthquake.

The data indicates we’re reaching

an equilibrium in terms of

supply and demand.

Data is an incredibly important

resource that can help us make

better decisions for the future of

Christchurch. The overall picture

is big and complex but this series

of snapshots will help make

things clearer in the coming

weeks and months.

I also intend to release a quarterly

report containing comprehensive

economic and social data

about greater Christchurch. This

will be a significant report that

further ensures we’re accurately

and transparently tracking the

regeneration process.

•Nicky Wagner is Minister

supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

June Rhodes writes

about Morgan Jones who

featured in The Star on

April 20

In reference to the article on

Morgan Jones I see that he has

grown up into a fine young man.

It was sad that he never

regained his sight but good to

see what he has achieved and

what he is doing with his life.

He is a real inspiration to others

with a disability – his dancing

and other activities – and says

he is not afraid of heights just

scared of the dark, so obviously

he has a sense of humour.

It’s a wonderful idea to create a

sanctuary for native birds where

he can hear their lovely calls.

This was a terrible tragedy

when he fell from the train, and

should never have happened. I

wept to see that lovely little boy

with Jason Gunn in the newspaper

of November 28, 1994. It

was heart-breaking. I remember

too, he still loved playing with his

train set, and said ‘could they put

the light on,’ which was so sad.

I do hope that he manages to

get some work.

The reason for writing is that

in the throwes of moving house,

I have found a lot of old newspapers,

and cuttings of Morgan.

I see he has a lovely dog as a

companion. I always contribute

to the blind and puppy dog appeal,

and will think of Morgan.

I don’t think this will be able

to be passed on to him, but I

wish him well and the best of

luck for the future.

The city council says it

will not make any more

contentious road layout

changes in the central

city until there is general

consensus on the plans

Judy Keen – St Asaph St

is so narrow now that when a

parked car’s door is opened you

have to swerve around it into

the other lane or stop. Also,

yesterday on the way to work, I

saw the driver of a sport utility

vehicle attempting to park and

the driver needed two parking

spaces to get in, while the driver

of a small car who attempted to

get in between two parked cars

only partially succeeded. It’s a

nightmare driving beside a bus

or truck as they take up more

than their lane and you are so

close. The bus driver has to utilise

two lanes to turn a corner.

BOTCHED:

The city

council

says it will

not start

another An

Accessible

City project

until

everyone is

happy, after

uproar about

changes to

St Asaph St.

Plan to close loopholes

Amanda Frend – If they are

making streets narrower, then

how can one move out of way

of an ambulance, fire truck and

police. There’s no room to move.

Did they not factor those things

in as well?

Wayne Nicholson – But

has the left hand told the right

hand. Confusion will still reign.

Maree Clayton – What are

the mayor and city councillors

on? Ludicrous, waste of money

and time!

James David Foote – The

St Asaph St drama is a storm in

a tea cup.

Port Hills National

list MP Nuk Korako and

Christchurch Central

candidate Duncan Webb

have been ordered to take

down several election

signs, because they are too

big

Jack Thompson – That’s

not campaigning, trust someone

to complain. That site is Nuk’s

site in Beckenham where he

works from his mobile office!

It clearly states and shows his

contact details – at least he’s out

in the community and wanting

to help.

Jake Ranginui – And the

other places his signs are placed?

Also offices? He has a lot of offices.

Andrew Lamont – Typical

National. Make all the rules,

don’t follow any of them.

Andrew Johnson – It’s the

lost luggage law man.

LAST WEEKEND I was excited

when Andrew Little showed very

clearly that he and Labour are on

the side of first-home buyers.

I know that this will help out

so many of the people I see every

time I am out and about in the

Wigram electorate who are

giving up on the dream of ever

owning their own place.

What we’re going to do is shut

down the tax loopholes that

speculators have been receiving

and use the money saved to help

make 600,000 homes warmer

and healthier over the next 10

years.

Losses on rental properties

will be ring-fenced, meaning

they will no longer be able to

be used to reduce the tax that

speculators owe on other income.

Last year, this loophole meant

that speculators and foreign

buyers avoided paying about $150

million in taxes.

Removing it will create a level

playing field for home buyers

and help families get a fair shot

at buying a place of their own.

The savings from closing the

speculators’ loophole will go

into helping both homeowners

and landlords make their houses

warm and healthy, with grants

of up to $2000 per dwelling

towards upgrading insulation

and heating.

What we heard from Andrew

was a fresh plan to tackle the

housing crisis. This is in clear

contrast to the Government

which is playing the old smoke

and mirrors game.

Only days after our

announcement the Government

decided to reheat some of

their already-announced

housing initiatives, including

the Riccarton Racecourse

Development, in a vain attempt

to make it look like it was finally

doing something meaningful.

Sadly it is not.

Red zone ideas that you may

Some ideas for the red zone are well known – like the

Flatwater Sports Lake, or Eden NZ eco-domes. But others,

many developed by local people, have not had much

publicity Gabrielle Stuart profiles some of the lesser known

ideas

WHITE

WATER: A

similar artificial

course at the

US National

Whitewater

Centre.

Nature Playground

Network

Rocks, logs, trees and streams

laid out to allow children to play

creatively, challenge themselves

and explore nature.

That is the vision of a group

of Christchurch parents and

educators, who have developed

plans for a range of nature playgrounds.

They are designed to be

flexible to fit a range of other

potential red zone proposals.

One proposal is to create them in

small spaces along a cycleway or

walkway through the red zone so

families exploring the area can

stop to rest or play there.

Several sites have also been

looked at where larger nature

playgrounds could be created

with a specific theme – like in

Walnut Tree Park where a stand

of willow trees could be pruned

and shaped into a play area, or in

wetland areas where rocks, logs

and water areas could be added

to help children explore.

The project has attracted a

group of supporters, but no costing

or site-specific design work

has been done.

White Water Course

An artificial white water park,

designed with courses of different

difficulties, some for beginners

and others for internationallevel

white water competitions.

The idea was initially developed

before the earthquakes by a

group of Christchurch kayakers

and rafters.

They have since designed it to

be incorporated into other red

zone proposals like the flat water

sports lake or surf park.

Deals could also be made

with other attractions, like the

mountain biking Christchurch

Adventure Park, to draw adventurous

visitors into the city.

The initial plan estimated

12-15ha would be needed for the

courses, walkways, buildings and

parking, but a detailed business

plan has not yet been done.

The cost of white water courses

built in other parts of the world

has ranged from $10 million to

$50 million.

More information can be

found at the group’s Wai Huka o

Waitaha Facebook page.

Community Food Growing

Network

A network of community gardens,

orchards and forage trails

throughout the red zone, bringing

the community together,

providing food to people in need

and keeping the area green.

Many groups have supported

and helped to develop the idea

from Edible Canterbury and

the Food Resilience Network to

the city council and Canterbury

District Health Board.

It could use many of the existing

fruit trees and gardens in

the red zone. It could also work

in with and around most other

nature-based ideas for the red

zone.

not have heard about

WALKIES: School of the Naked Dog trainer Blair Anderson

has championed the idea for a dog park at Porritt Park.

Barkerton Dog Park

A plan to redesign Porritt

Park into a dog park with a dog

trail, training equipment and a

“museum of dog” and learning

centre for children.

The idea was floated by School

of the Naked Dog trainer Blair

Anderson. He hoped it could

become a national hub for all

things canine, from research

to conventions, making

Christchurch a “dog city” and

“the hub of a country built on

the back of the dog”.

He also referenced research

showing walking dogs may help

people to be physically, mentally

and socially healthier and

happier.

He floated it at the United

States Association of Pet Dog

Trainers conference in 2011, and

also got the support of visiting

United Kingdom “canine access

adviser” Stephen Jenkinson.

Lower Avon Heritage

Recovery Trail

From a Maori trade site to

gardens planted by Christchurch’s

first mayor William

‘Cabbage’ Wilson – the trail

along the Avon would tell the

city’s story.

The idea was created by tour

guide Diana Madgin and is now

supported by a team of about 25

specialists and groups. It would

run across eight sites from the

central city to the estuary, each

featuring stories from a different

period in the city’s history.

Some sites have been chosen

for their gardens and others for

the historic buildings which

could be restored.

SKIS:

Wakepark NZ

in Ashburton

uses similar

cable

technology

to a park

proposed for

the red zone.

Christchurch CablePark

A park where people could

wakeboard or waterski using a

cable, rather than being towed

behind a boat.

It would make the sports more

accessible to people who have no

access to a boat.

The different difficulty levels

would also make it easier

and safer for beginners to

learn.

The idea was first floated in

2008 by a group of Canterbury

University students and has

been supported by Sports

Canterbury.

It would use a New Zealand

designed and built Two-Tower

cable system.

Godley Head

campground

goes great guns

• By Bridget Rutherford

GODLEY HEAD campground

will stick around after more than

double the number of visitors

originally expected have stayed

there.

The Department of Conservation

opened the campsite in

October on the former military

compound at the entrance to Lyttelton

Harbour. DOC Christchurch

operations manager Andy

Thompson said it had been going

“a lot better than expected”.

He said eight months in 1008

people had stayed there, making

1257 guest nights.

“I was expecting about 500 visitors

max in the first year.”

Godley Head was a World

War 2 coastal defence battery. It

closed in 1963, but three large gun

emplacements and seven military

buildings remain.

The emplacements were damaged

in the earthquakes, but Mr

Thompson said work was being

Hillmorton High School

The Star

Former student sings

Hillmorton’s praises

On Thursday May 4, I had

the pleasure of speaking

to a number of Halswell

Primary students about what

they could expect at high

school. Whichever school

you decide is right for your

son or daughter, the next five

years will be a challenging and

exciting time for them.

Seven years ago, my family

was in the same situation as

many of you find yourselves in

now. We had recently moved

to Christchurch and that year,

while I was in year eight, we

went to many open nights,

before finally deciding on

Hillmorton High.

Today, I could not be happier

with the decision my parents

made. Although I knew

no-one else when I started,

staff and students alike were

welcoming and supportive. I

quickly made friends and, over

the next five years, was able to

participate in everything from

dragonboating to the national

Shakespeare championships.

Hillmorton always encourages

and supports its students

academically, as well. I gained

an Outstanding Scholarship

in Geography and the

prestigious University of Auckland Scholarship in

James Adams speaks of the wonderful and

rounded education he received while at

Hillmorton High School

addition to my sterling NCEA results – and yet, I wasn’t

even the best. The student who won Dux in my year

had been excelling in university papers, again with the

Activities enjoyed at Big Day Out

Activities enjoyed at

the Big Day Out at

Victoria Park included

(above), photography

art installations (left).

www.hillmorton.school.nz

assistance of dedicated staff.

So rumours that “Hillmorton

isn’t very academic”,

or “Hillmorton students

don’t go to university” are

absolutely untrue. I would be

disappointed if anyone was

making decisions about their

children’s futures based on

this sort of hearsay.

In addition, Hillmorton’s small

size and diversity means

that it provides students with

a sort of education that no

other Christchurch school

could come close to. The

range of backgrounds and

skills that Hillmorton students

bring to the school mirrors

real life, where you have to

get along with your boss,

visiting tradespeople and

customers. New Zealand is

a diverse country, and it’s in

local schools like Hillmorton

that we can foster a shared

sense of community. Similarly,

Hillmorton’s size means no

student gets left behind.

In essence, you know what

is best for your child. I know

that the decision my parents

made worked for me, and I

ask you to seriously consider

Hillmorton.

Kind regards,

James Adams

University of Auckland student – Law & Politics

Hillmorton High student – 2011 to 2015

We had the first Big Day

• By Jamie Morton

IN A world first,

Christchurch and British

scientists have

used satellite

images to calculate

the number

of endangered

albatrosses living

on remote and

inaccessible islands.

Researchers from

Canterbury Museum

and the British

Antarctic Survey have

shown that the highest

resolution satellite imagery

is capable of “seeing” these

birds from space, allowing

researchers to count them

on remote islands without

ever having to go there.

• By Lincoln Tan

Paul

Scofield

The study used the new

WorldView-3 satellite,

which can see objects

larger than 30cm.

The team developed

and tested

the accuracy of the

satellite-method by

counting individuals

on a well-studied

colony of wandering

albatross on South

Georgia, a remote

island south-east

of Argentina in the

southern Atlantic Ocean.

They then applied it to

the northern royal albatross,

a species that only

breeds in New Zealand.

A TEACHER who initially

denied smoking weed has

been brought before the

Education Council after

laboratory tests confirmed

he had cannabis in his

system.

Daniel Bruce McMillan

has been teaching at

Kingslea School (Te Puna

Wai o Tuhinapo) Youth

Justice residential facility

in Christchurch for six

terms since 2015.

The school provides

education to vulnerable

and at risk teens between

14 and 17.

McMillan returned a

positive drugs test during

an Education Council

competence process.

He initially denied that

he had consumed any cannabis

and cited weight loss

as a possible explanation

for the result.

But laboratory tests

confirmed recent cannabis

consumption, and

that weight loss could not

account for the positive

results.

McMillan finally admitted

that he had smoked

two cannabis cigarettes.

The disciplinary tribunal

ruled that what McMillan

did amounted to serious

misconduct.

It was also revealed

that a mandatory report

filed with the council in

2013 had raised concerns

around the teacher’s drugrelated

impairment in the

classroom.

That investigation resulted

in McMillan entering a

rehabilitative agreement,

Professor Paul Scofield,

“This technique will be

an invaluable global conservation

resource that can

give us near-real time information

about the status

of endangered species.

The ground-breaking

image resolution of the

newly-available satellite

will provide a step change

in our ability to count

other wildlife directly

from space without disturbance,

at potentially lower

logistical effort.”

which included providing

negative drug tests every

three months.

The tribunal noted that

while smoking cannabis

is not the most serious

example of illegal drug

use, it did occur while he

was subject to his previous

agreement with the

council,” the decision said.

The tribunal censured

the teacher and put

several conditions on

his practising certificate,

including having to

provide any prospective

employer with a copy

of the decision, and to

undergo random urine

McMillan also has to attend

Jacqueline Yoder

Teacher aims

Teacher Jacqueline Yoder has left one of the city’s most

prestigious private schools to help turn Linwood College

around. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about why she

did it, being an investment banker and speaking Te Reo

PASSIONATE: Jacqueline Yoder

moved to Linwood College at the

start of this year.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS ​

So can you tell me what your role

at Linwood College is?

So I’m the head of learning area,

English. I’m also leader of gifted

and talented, and enrichment

programmes. One of the new

moves in education is communities

of learning. Rather than schools

being separated entities, schools

create connections between

them. Linwood College has two

communities of learning. We’ve

got the bays cluster of schools, and

the tamai cluster, which are the

schools near us such as Te Waka

Unua. One of the things I’ve been

doing is setting up a programme

whereby year six to eight students

from both partner primary

schools, and our year seven and

eight pupils, come to Linwood for

extension classes. We’ve just done

debating, and we will do maths,

science and culture and others.

Teachers from Linwood College

with particular expertise can work

with primary schools to build

everybody’s capacities. It’s a new

programme and it’s exciting to be

part of.

When did you start working at

Linwood College?

I started at the beginning of this

year. I came after spending 10 years

at St Andrew’s College. It’s been

fantastic so far, it’s such a great

school and we have wonderful

learners here. I loved St Andrew’s

as well. Linwood has such a diverse

environment, and I want to help

people see what a diverse and

vibrant school it is.

Why the move?

I had shadowed Richard

Edmundson (Linwood College

principal) as part of my masters in

leadership when he was principal

at Hornby High, and then I went

to Linwood for placement. I had

such a great time at St Andrew’s

but I wanted to go somewhere

where I could make a big difference

in the local community I live in,

because I’m from Corsair Bay. I

just feel Linwood is on the cusp

of incredible things. I feel really

privileged to be part of the journey.

I’ve also had a lot of involvement in

digital learning, so I wanted to be

involved in that.

to build up self-belief in students

Are there many differences

between the schools?

I think what I’ve learned more

is there are more similarities in

our learners than our differences.

They’re just as passionate about

their learning here. But cultural

diversity is the main difference.

For me I really focus hard on

building self-belief in students.

The learners here have incredible

problem solving skills. It’s about

building that self-belief and putting

in structures here so they

can express those views.

To put it bluntly, St Andrew’s

is one of the city’s most prestigious

private schools, and Linwood

has had its share of issues

over the last few years. Did you

see the move being challenging?

I’ve been here on placement before

so I knew the college. I think

I was ready for a bigger challenge.

When I came here, Richard

had such an influence here, and

so did acting principal Linda

Tame before him. So once I got

here there was a real readiness

for change. I’ve been really supported,

I’ve been able to develop

enrichment programmes and

every new initiative that we’ve

looked at putting in has been so

light in secondary schooling in

New Zealand. We want Linwood

to be the benchmark. And I think

it can be, I wouldn’t be here if I

didn’t think that.

Where were you before St

Andrew’s?

I spent a period at St Bede’s

and before that almost 10 years

in London working as an investment

banker. It was good to have

that long overseas experience,

and then I was ready to come

home. While I was there and

outside the classroom I ended

up deciding that education was

for me. I’ve just completed my

masters in secondary school leadership.

I’ve always wanted to live

by the sea and we live in Corsair

Bay. I have three children, aged

14, 11 and eight.

So I guess when you’re not

working you’re a bit of a taxi

service.

I’ve got a lovely husband who

does a lot of that (laughs). I’m

pretty intensively focused here

at the moment. I love doing a lot

of running, I’ve done a couple of

half marathons, but for now I like

to call it maintenance running.

And I hear you are a Te Reo

speaker and teacher. What drew

you to that?

I have taught Te Reo in all my

roles up until now. I was head of

the Te Reo programme at St Andrew’s,

which I set up and ran. I

also taught it at St Bede’s. I think

that’s another reason why I came

to Linwood, even though I’m not

teaching it, there are lots of opportunities

to speak with my students.

I did Te Reo at university. I

would say I’m competent in it.

Why did you get into teaching

initially?

My father was a school principal.

It’s in the genes, I think I

was biologically predisposed. I

was always around teachers, even

when I left to get into banking,

I think my heart was always in

teaching.

Restoration takes step forward

SCULPTOR MARK Whyte

has carefully carved a replica

of the Robert Falcon Scott

statue’s leg – only to have it

deliberately broken.

Mr Whyte is one of the

experts involved in the

restoration of the

earthquake-damaged

statue of that

stood in Oxford

Tce for 100 years,

beofre it fell in the

February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

It was carved in

Carrara marble

by Scott’s widow,

Kathleen Scott,

to commemorate

his achievements in polar

exploration and as a tribute

to Scott and those who perished

with him on the return

journey from the South Pole

in 1912.

The statue is top-heavy

and weighs in at 2.5 tonne.

During the earthquake, it

snapped at its weakest point,

the ankles, in an uneven

break.

City council head of parks,

Andrew Rutledge, says the

Mark Whyte

repair is “tricky” because the

break is uneven.

There’s been a lot of research

into how to go about

repairing it,” he says.

Consultant engineer Grant

Wilkinson, Mr Whyte and

others decided the

best method was

to drill into the

statue’s legs and

plinth and thread

carbon fibre rods

through the legs

to improve its

resilience should

there be future big

earthquakes. A

form of base isolation

will also be

installed on the plinth.

Before doing anything to

the statue, they needed to

know the technique would

work and that the work

could be done without causing

more damage.

So Mr Whyte carved a

replica of one of the statue’s

broken legs, also in Carrara

marble. He carefully

replicated the angles of the

break and, using the repair

technique that will be used

on the actual statue, joined

the two parts together.

Then he watched as his

work was put under increasing

pressure, to replicate the

force of a large earthquake,

until it broke.

“It’s not often that I

carve something just for

someone to break,” said Mr

Whyte.

“But we can’t practise

our technique on the actual

statue. This is the next-best

thing.”

The testing was carried

out at Holmes Solutions

in Hornby this week. Mr

Wilkinson says the testing

met all expectations. The test

involved rocking the replica

leg back and forth on its base

under incrementally increasing

loading.

“Our design target was to

withstand a 1.5-tonne load,

and we got to that with only

a couple of hairline cracks,”

he says. “That load can be

correlated to a one in 1000-

year earthquake event, and

with the added protection

of the base isolation in

the plinth, the statue will

survive a 1 in 2500-year

event.

After passing that test, the

replica leg was pushed to

breaking point.

“It didn’t collapse until

we got to a 3-tonne loading,

and that’s fantastic,” he says.

“A 3-tonne loading approximately

equates to a one in

2500-year event, and we got

well past that.”

Mr Wilkinson says the test

result means the team can

have confidence in its repair

strategy.

“That was our first big

hurdle,” he says. “Now we

can move on to the real

thing and prepare to work

on the statue.”

Mr Rutledge says the

Scott statue is more than

a landmark statue for

Christchurch.

“It’s an internationally

important statue,” he says.

“It’s critical that we do

everything possible to repair

and strengthen it without it

being damaged further.”

All going well, the statue

will be back on its plinth in

September.

TWO Christchurch activists

will be at a United Nations

conference in New York next

month to help negotiate a treaty

to ban nuclear weapons.

Kate Dewes ONZM and

Robert Green will be among

delegates from more than 130

nations aimed to finalise a treaty

that will stigmatise nuclear

weapons.

Unlike chemical and biological

weapons, nuclear weapons

have not yet been outlawed

internationally.

Lucy Stewart and Lyndon

Burford, also from New Zealand,

will also attend the conference

that runs from June 15 to

July 7.

Dr Dewes has served on

disarmament

advisory boards of

two UN Secretaries

General. She has

been active in the

anti-nuclear movement

for more than

40 years.

“I feel deeply

honoured to be

heading this team

of New Zealand

civil society delegates in the

most exciting breakthrough

towards a nuclear weapon-free

world since the 1996 World

Court judgement.”

Commander Green, a former

operator of British nuclear

weapons spoke

out against nuclear

weapons before the

first Gulf War in 1991.

The boycott of

these negotiations by

the nuclear weapon

states shows how

much they fear a

prohibition treaty, not

least because of the

impact it will have on military

operators of nuclear weapons,”

he said.

Onions – the must-have vegetable

.kiwi

Thursday May 18 2017

VERSATILE: Stagger plant your onions for a constant source of

supply.

IT’S OFTEN been said that

autumn can be the best

season for planting, because

new plants have time to settle

in before they’re faced

with their first summer.

Here are some other tasks

you could be doing before

winter strikes.

Fertilising

Spread organic pellets

around shrubs and flowerbeds.

Feed citrus and other

fruit trees with citrus food.

Clear away weeds and

grass at the base and spread

a layer of organic mulch

over the root area (keeping

well clear of the trunk).

Remember, feeding with

YES, I know I harp on about

must-have vegetables and herbs.

The problem is, once you start

growing and enjoying homegrown

food, the list of must-haves

seems to grow too. But I really do

think onions are at the top of that

list and should be grown in every

vegetable garden.

In my vegetable garden I like to

grow red onions. But I don’t stop

there. I also stagger-plant spring

onions, regular brown pukekohe

longkeeper onions, pearl drop

onions and red bunching spring

onions.

For the newbie gardeners

out there, stagger planting (or

staggering) is when you plant a

few seedlings of the same varieties

(ie broccoli or onions) every

few weeks to ensure you have a

constant supply of produce ready

to harvest.

You can grow onions pretty

much anywhere in the garden –

they also grow well in pots. But

make sure the soil is friable (goes

crumbly when you touch it). If

it’s not, simply give it a good dig

over and add a bit of compost and

fertiliser.

Red and pukekohe longkeeper

onions need to be planted 10cm

high potash fertilisers

encourages blooming and,

even more importantly,

builds plants’ resistance to

disease (essential at this

time of year when fungal

problems are rife).

Lawn care

Give lawns a feed with a

long-lasting fertiliser. Early

autumn is the ideal time

to rejuvenate tired lawns.

Spike with a fork or a purpose-designed

lawn aerator

and oversow with a lawn

seed blend.

Pest control

Watch out for the autumn

influx of caterpillars.

White moths and butterflies

attack cabbages,

cauliflowers, rocket and

their relatives, vine moth

caterpillars are demolishing

grape leaves, flax caterpillar

is stripping leaf sections of

leaves, leaf rollers are knitting

leaves and emerging to

graze on apples, feijoas and

other fruit.

Use low toxic options for

controlling most caterpillars.

Grass grubs and porina,

too, can destroy lawns.

Treat weeds

Many annual weeds are

approaching maturity and

should be removed before

they have the chance to

spread their seeds.

you could try growing spring

Ambitious comedy based on politics

by Georgia O’Connor-

THERE IS no doubt the

Canterbury Repertory Theatre’s

latest show Yes, Prime Minister is

an ambitious one, and it is clear

its cast has worked very hard to

pull it off.

The show has merits, with an

aim to predominantly take the

mickey out of the British Government

and the cast executing

the show’s humour well.

But I feel this show would have

captivated far more laughter out

of the audience if it was modernised

and adapted to relate

to us Kiwis. The New Zealand

Government has provided much

material for creative writers

to work around with pulling

ponytails, flying sex toys and a

tragically failed flag referendum

which, for me, would have made

the show a lot funnier.

Sir Humphrey played by

Raoul Neave is a favourite who

is hilariously transparent in his

bid to keep the Prime Minister

from knowing anything that is

going on.

Because Sir Humphrey is

known for being a master of

obfuscation, Neave is often

required to recite long-winded,

confusing sentences which

would have taken both a lot of

skill to memorise and execute –

Neave mastered this.

The shows’ jokes are very

clever but I didn’t find them relatable

– I don’t believe younger

talent of the show.

But if you have a vested interest

in British politics the show

will be enjoyable.

ON TRACK: Check out the sights on a Forgotten World Adventure – a King Country rail route utilising converted golf carts. Dress warm for the tunnels though.

Forgotten world unforgettable

• By Mike Yardley

I RECENTLY ventured to the

eye-catching King Country to

sample the much-buzzed about

offerings of Forgotten World

Adventures.

Based in Taumarunui, this

incredibly enterprising tourism

venture boasts a platter of soft adventure

excursions, prising open

the stories, legends and unspoilt

scenery of the hinterland.

The pioneering founder of

Forgotten World Adventures, Ian

Balme, was a Waikato farmer who

dared to dream big, turning a

mothballed rusting eyesore into a

visionary business.

In 2012, he secured a 30-year

lease from KiwiRail to operate

semi-guided tours along the

142km decommissioned line

between Okahukura and Stratford,

studded with 24 tunnels and

92 bridges.

I joined the 5 Tunnel RailCart

Tour, a four-hour return romp

from Taumarunui. I was struck

by the mounds of pumice and

mud that had been painstakingly

dug off the tracks, after ploughing

down hillsides in the April

rainstorms.

Our guide remarked that the

prohibitive costs of constant track

maintenance underpinned Kiwi-

Rail’s decision to pull the plug on

the line’s operation in 2010.

The safety briefing included

a beginner’s guide on how to

“drive” the railcarts – converted

golf carts, petrol-powered and

limited to a top speed of 22km/h.

The commercial glory of the

Forgotten World region may have

long faded but the wrap-around

COMFORTABLE:

Stay overnight

at the Forgotten

World Motel.

scenery is deliriously good.

Animals vastly outnumber

people in these parts, as we

tootled by goats, deer, alpacas and

happy herds of cows on elevated

pastures, while flocks of sheep

were crowd-wrangled by sheepdogs.

But the undeniable highlight

of riding these storied rails are

the tunnels, including the 1500m

tunnel.

Boring through these tunnels

and admiring their damp, jet

black walls, illuminated by the

headlights on our carts was absolutely

thrilling. Wrap up warm –

they can be bone-chillingly cold.

Clattering along the tracks in

our carts, curling through valleys

and creased hills, the countryside

is sprinkled with clutches of ramshackle

houses and dilapidated

farm buildings.

They are vestiges of the boom

times, when primary industries

like timber-milling and coalmining

thrived. It’s sobering to

reflect on the dramatic population

changes in some of these

settlements.

We stopped for scrumptious

home-made snacks in the sleepy

village of Matiere. When the line

opened 80 years ago, it was home

to 750 residents. Now, there’s

only a couple of dozen locals and

housing is dirt cheap. A rating

valuation of $15,000 is not

uncommon.

Information posts along the

route, complete with historical

photographs, illustrate how bustling

many of these lineside communities

used to be. Rail travel

has always exuded romanticism.

The supreme sense of scenic

intimacy is not matched by road

travel and the novelty of piloting

your own passage along the tracks

is an undeniable winner with the

Kiwi love affair with anything

DIY.

Forgotten World Adventures

offers a variety of touring options.

The 20 Tunnel Tour is a 10-hour

affair reaching Whangamomona.

The Ultimate” is a two-day

tour spanning the full 142km

length of the line, all the way to

Stratford, after sleeping overnight

in Whangamomona.

In addition to the railcarts, you

can also try your hand at the New

Zealand-made RailBikes, with

side by side seating, on the 5 Tunnel

and 10 Tunnel tours.

Only a moderate level of fitness

is needed. I also took a ride on the

Forgotten World Jet for a flavour

of the beauty, reverence and heritage

of the Wanganui River.

My driver/guide was Robert

Carter, a local legend who has

been guiding visitors along the

river for 35 years. He pointed out

to me the astonishing amount

of volcanic material, discharged

by Taupo and Ruapehu, that

has stamped its presence on the

landscape.

Forgotten World’s new custombuilt

15-seater jetboat operates

various excursions including

a 232km return journey to the

Bridge to Nowhere, and on the

multi-day excursions, she’ll zip

you all the way down to Wanganui

city.

In fact, Forgotten World

Adventures operate the longest

commercial jetboat rides in the

Southern Hemisphere. If you’re

taking an overnight excursion,

be sure to spend a night in

the self-proclaimed Republic

of Whangamomona and get

your passport stamped at the

Whangamomona Hotel. It’s truly

one of New Zealand’s legendary

watering holes.

While in Taumarunui, my head

hit the pillow at the Forgotten

World Motel (formerly known as

the Hilton.) My well-appointed

unit was clean, quiet and toasty,

the beds are cloud-comfortable

and there’s free

wi-fi.

• By Ross Kiddie

IT WAS only a matter of

time before Lexus’ new

2-litre turbocharged engine

stretched across more

product.

The four-cylinder unit

first arrived in the Lexus

NX sport utility vehicle, it

then found its way into the

IS sedan, and it is an option

in the RC, a two-door sport

coupe and, as you would

guess, it is badged RC200t.

I’ve long been an RC

series fan, the 350 with

its 3.5-litre V6 engine is a

stunner, it delivers vivid

performance and fits

well with the concept of

manageable power and

reasonable economy. The

same could be said of the

new 200t, it has stunning

economy (7.3l/100km or

39mpg) and its 180kW

(5800rpm) is more than

adequate for the RC’s

concept.

Sure, it gives way 53kW

to the 350, but that is

negligible, it’s not often you

can exploit an engine’s true

potential, and the RC200t

delivers honest power and

still imparts the fun factor.

Lexus also rates the

twin-camshaft, 16-valve

unit with 350Nm of torque,

and if you take into account

the areas where maximum

torque is produced –

1650rpm to 4400rpm

respectively – it has a solid

flow of energy across the

rev band.

There’s a global trend

towards smaller capacity

turbocharged engines

and Lexus’ entry is a true

gem, it is smooth, silent

and very flexible. It works

unimpeded through an

eight-speed automatic

transmission; the latter

provides a seamless ratio

spread and changes which

are almost undetectable,

bar the needle shift on the

tachometer.

In true sports car

fashion, the RC200t drives

through the rear wheels

which is pretty much as

Lexus hallmark, and it

offers an involving driving

experience.

There is something

about rear-wheel-drive

which contributes to a pure

handling feel, encouraging

driver input. You also get

a deliberate feel of control

from the rear with the fully

independent multiple links

controlling suspension

movement and keeping the

wheels in constant contact

with the ground, that on

LEXUS RC200T: True touring car.

top of the most amazing

feedback from the front.

While it is like steering

on velvet, there is definite

feel which encourages

quick turn-in, it is forceful

yet delicate in the same

movement.

I took the test car on

the gorgeous road to Lake

Coleridge Village. On that

road there are a mixture

of corners, fast and slow,

which really tests chassis

control, the RC200t served

to prove it is a true touring

car. It sits low at just

1395mm; consequently,

there is a low centre of

gravity, so body movement

is well contained.

• Price – Lexus RC200t,

$102,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4695mm; width,

1840mm; height,

1395mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 180kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.5sec

• Fuel usage –

7.3l/100km

The spring and damper

rates are a mix of what is

needed to control balance

and allow for freedom and

absorption for comfort.

When powering out of a

corner, there is just enough

power to test grip at the

rear. In saying that there

is plenty of grip on offer

through sticky Bridgestone

Potenza sport specification

tyres (265/35 x 19in), and

with the traction control

settings there is little to

suggest the RC200t would

oversteer, although that

could be manufactured

by disengaging the TCS.

I don’t do that in any car,

and the RC200t can still be

an engaging drive without

making it twitchy at the

rear.

It is also a car which uses

different size tyres front to

rear, the combination of

grip and control, along with

the involving nature of the

steering has an end result of

desire, the 200t is a driver’s

car of true genius.

It looks the part too, the

edgy, coupe-type styling is

eye-catching and suggests

definite sporty appeal.

Inside, there is the sporty/

luxury combination which

Lexus does so well; it is

well specified with all

of the Lexus trim detail

that makes the brand so

appealing.

In terms of figures, the

Lexus RC200t delivers

the goods. It can cut out

a standstill to 120km/h

time of 7.5sec and lunge

though a highway overtake

in around 5sec (80km/h to

120km/h). According to its

comprehensive fuel usage

readout, it will also sip fuel

instantaneously at the rate

of 6l/100km (47mpg) at

100km/h, the engine very

unstressed at 1600rpm.

Lexus also claim a 230km/h

top speed if laws allowed.

All in all the 200t has

respectable all-round

performance, it also sits

well at $102,900 for the

F Sport model as tested.

This represents a $23,100

saving over its V6

stablemate, and by my

reckoning makes it a very

desirable purchase.

I’m quite smitten with

Lexus product, there’s just

enough sporty appeal and,

of course, as a luxury brand

there is no skimping on

detail.

The RC200t is beautifully

built and feels fabulous to

be in as a driver, and as

a passenger too for that

matter. Sure, the rear is a

little tight to access, but

once seated there two

occupants can be made

comfortable.

For me, I see the 200t as a

driver’s car and one which

excels in all situations, I’d

expect nothing less from

Lexus as a brand.

Senior Warriors escape axe after Penrith debacle

• By Michael Burgess

WARRIORS COACH Stephen

Kearney has resisted swinging

the axe in the wake of the

embarrassing defeat at Penrith

last Saturday

Kearney has made just one

change to his 17-man squad

to face the Dragons tomorrow

night, with Ken Maumalo replacing

the injured Solomone Kata.

Kata was making his comeback

from a hamstring complaint last

week when he was forced from

the field with another leg injury

in the 69th minute.

With Kata out, David Fusitu’a

switches from the wing to the

centres, Ken Maumalo is back

replacing Fusitu’a after playing

in the Intrust Super Premiership

last Saturday, and Bunty Afoa,

who started on the bench against

Penrith, has been named to start

at loose forward.

Simon Mannering wasn’t

from the hamstring injury which

forced him out of Saturday’s loss

to Penrith. Manu Vatuvei is sidelined

with a calf injury he picked

up in the final field session last

Friday when he was set to make

his return to the NRL.

Meanwhile, Ben Matulino

becomes just the fourth player

to make 200 appearances for

the Warriors when they face St

George-Illawarra at Waikato

Stadium tomorrow at 8pm.

The club’s first-ever home

rower Bodene Thompson who

plays his 50th match for the Warriors,

and his 135th career game.

Matulino follows Stacey Jones

and current teammates Simon

Mannering and Manu Vatuvei in

joining the club’s elite 200-game

club.

Matulino was the first graduate

from the under-20 competition

to play both 100 and 150 NRL

games, but injuries and suspension

have held him up since.

Topai-Aveai signs three-year Sharks deal

• By Gordon Findlater

ONE OF the best players in

last year’s school rugby UC

Championship has continued

his rapid rise in rugby league

by signing a three-year contract

with the Cronulla Sharks.

Cruz Topai-Aveai, 18, needed

just a handful of games in

the under-20 national youth

competition with the South

Sydney Rabbitohs to convince

the Sharks that he is worth a

first-grade contract.

Before injuring himself against

the Penrith Panthers under-20

side last month, the forward was

proving to be a standout for the

Rabbitohs. In his last full game,

he made 12 runs, including two

line breaks, which resulted in

him gaining 208 metres.

Topai-Aveai will add some

much needed youth to the

Sharks roster which has seven

forwards who are 29 or older,

including 35-year-olds Paul

Gallen and Chris Heighington.

Last year, Topai-Aveai was

awarded the Philip McDonald

Memorial Medal, with

opposition coaches recognising

him as the most valuable player

in the UC Championship.

He helped lead Shirley Boys’

High School to grand-final

appearances in both 2015 and

2016.

After finishing the first XV

rugby season, he decided to

make the switch to league even

though he had less than 12

months experience in the 13-

man code.

Are there too many

cards in Super Rugby?

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER ALL Blacks and

Crusaders half back Justin

Marshall has come out swinging

over Super Rugby rulings on foul

play.

Marshall highlighted incidents

in recent

weeks, including

Crusaders captain

Sam Whitelock’s

two-week-ban for

what he said was “a

Justin

Marshall

rub against an opponent’s

face with

his elbow”, and

the red carding of

Highlanders wing Waisake Naholo

and Bulls lock RG Snyman

at Loftus Versfeld.

Marshall said the brutal

physicality has been taken out

of rugby to the detriment of the

game.

Said Marshall in his weekly

column in the NZ Herald: “For

me, there are two issues involved.

The first is that it’s a contact

game – players are trained and

programmed to run hard at each

other and there are going to be

times when there is often hard

physical contact. That includes

the aerial aspect – players contesting

high kicks.

“I feel we’re taking the really

brutal physicality out of the

game, and the second issue is

that players are thinking twice

about how to react to fast-changing

events in front of them and

that’s not good for the game.”

He said players are now going

into areas of contact without

confidence due to the fear of

being carded. He made note of

instances where players are being

carded for high tackles that

are the fault of the ball carrier

and not the tackler. For example

cards have been given in the

YOU’RE OFF: Former All Blacks and Crusaders half back Justin Marshall says yellow and red

cards are being overused in Super Rugby

PHOTO: HAGEN HOPKINS

past for high tackles that have

involved the ball carrier slipping,

which has resulted in their head

coming into the contact zone

lower than the tackler would

have expected.

“I’m not condoning foul play

and am certainly a supporter of

getting on top of concussion and

serious injuries in the game, but

we’ve got to respect rugby for

what it is. It’s a physical game

about contact and winning

possession but, bit by bit, we’re

eliminating contact from the

game,” he wrote.

“For me, Naholo was trying

to get the ball and he used his

shoulder to protect himself from

the other player. The Bulls player

was hit high but I believe that’s

just part of game.

Marshall said the red card of

Snyman was also harsh, stating

that he was cleaning a Highlanders

player out of the ruck, who

was there illegally slowing down

the ball, when the Bulls were in a

try scoring position.

HAVE YOUR SAY: What

do you think of the red and

yellow card-friendly nature

of Super Rugby? Email

gordon.findlater@starmedia.

kiwi

What others think of

Marshall’s column

Reuben Thorne, former All

Blacks captain: “I thought

the Bulls player

charged into a

ruck against a

defenceless guy

and deliberately

went for his head

which probably

warranted a red

card. The Naholo one, he made

contact with the head but I don’t

think it was intentional but more

reckless. Whether it should be a

yellow or red card is the question

there.”

Scott Pawson, New

Brighton division one

coach: “Even down at club

level it’s become

very officious.

It was talked

about during the

coaches meeting

at the start of the

year, any kind of

contact with the head is now a

yellow card. I think common

sense needs to prevail in some

cases. If the ball carrier slips or is

going for the try line his head is

sometimes around knee height,

how are you meant to stop that?”

Martin Dodgson, Sumner

division one coach: “It all

comes down to the law changes.

Referees can be

held accountable

as well, if their

bosses are saying

you need to pay

attention to this

then they’ve got

to do it, so I can sympathise

with them. At the end of the day,

though you want 30 guys on the

field, there are some tackles you

look at and think did that really

deserve a card.”

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.

Home

& Property

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most

expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated

legal process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where

there is a lot of competition for a limited number

of properties. It might be tempting to take a few

shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could

cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do your

own due diligence. That means getting

a title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For valuable

feedback on the property’s condition, get

a report done by an inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standard. Although this all costs money,

it will save you more in the long term.

Sellers may occasionally provide some of

this information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

For more information

and bookings, contact

Mike Fulham

M: 021 300 567

E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies

so make sure you confirm details with

them. The Home Buyer’s Guide at

buyingahome.reaa.govt.nz has more

helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to

read it very carefully and get legal advice

before you sign. You can negotiate the

terms and conditions of an agreement,

but once you sign it, there’s no going

back.

on buying a property? Check out the

Home Buyers’ Guide at buyingahome.

call the Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA) on 0800 367 7322 (please call

classics featured

in Superstar Show

MULTI-talented New Zealand based

singer, songwriter, guitarist and vocal

coach, Stuart Clarke headlines

alongside well respected entertainer

Paul Madsen in a Superstar Show at

the Hornby WMC in June.

Presented by Madsen Promotions,

the Superstar Show features Paul

performing tributes to the BeeGees,

Eagles, Queen and Neil Diamond

with Stuart completing the lineup with

Johnny Cash classics.

Stuart has been involved in the New

Zealand music scene for more than 20

years. During this time public

performances have included

Auckland’s Christmas in the Park

(TV3), Tauranga Jazz Festival,

Clevedon Jazz Festival, Auckland Sky

City Casino, and Rhythm and Vines,

to name a few. He has shared the

stage with many national and

international acts such as Trinity

Roots, The Black Seeds, Hollie Smith,

John Butler Trio, and Donovan

Frankenwreiter. He has been

nominated for a B-Net Music Award,

as well as recording collaborations

released on Warners Music.

Blessed with a wonderfully rich

bass-baritone voice comparable to

Johnny Cash, Stuart performs the

music of Johnny Cash to perfection.
