Schools told of child sex offender

• By Andrew King

SCHOOLS IN south

Christchurch have been told a

convicted child sex offender will

soon be living near them.

They were notified on Tuesday

by the Department of Corrections

which assured them that

there will be 24/7 monitoring,

exclusion zones to prevent

contact with children, and the

offender will be housed more

than 500m from schools.

Letters were sent to schools,

including Somerfield School,

St Peter’s School and Cashmere

High School. ABC Somerfield

Childcare was also told.

Corrections staff were also going

door-to-door in Somerfield

yesterday letting the community

know.

Detective Sergeant Brad

Grainger of the police child

protection team said they

were working closely with

Corrections. He would not

reveal the offender’s identity or

past crimes, and referred The

Star to Corrections for further

comment.

Corrections said they were not

able to respond to The Star late

yesterday.

Somerfield principal Denise

Torrey said while they are not

thrilled they will have a sex

offender living amongst them,

it was about reinforcing good

safety policies.

There are multiple schools in

this area so they are always going

to be close. But we have to just

make sure we are pushing those

safety messages to keep our children

safe,” she said.

St Peter’s principal Pamela

Arthurs said it is out of their

control and she has full faith in

Corrections to keep the person

monitored and children safe.

“We accept people need to be

reintegrated and have a chance

to make it right,” she said.

Both principals said they had

notified parents about the sex

offender’s arrival. Ms Torrey

said there had been a little bit of

negative feedback.

“I have been asked for a name

and address, which I don’t have

and couldn’t give out even if I

did,” Ms Torrey said.

ABC Somerfield’s manager

said she could not comment.

Somerfield Residents Association

chairwoman Julie Tobbell

said it was better to be warned

than be in the dark about the

situation.

“It is a concern as a parent, but

it allows us to prepare our kids

for these situations by explaining

stranger danger,” she said.

Baxter

returns

home

after 14

months

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WHERE BAXTER has been for

more than a year is a mystery –

and the things the little dog may

have seen he will never be able to

tell.

The 10-year-old bichon frise

has been compared to Wilson the

Lotto Dog – finding his way home

after a long adventure.

He was found wandering in

Hornby on Sunday about 6km

away from the Avonhead home

where he went missing 14 months

ago.

A NICE warm fuzzy canine

story on the front page today –

a 14-month reunion between

owner and dog.

Baxter the bichon frise is back

with his owner after disappearing

in early March last year.

Clearly, somebody has had

Baxter. He’s microchipped and

has a collar and he has been

fairly well looked after.

So it doesn’t take much

detective work to work out that

whoever was caring for Baxter

didn’t alert the city council,

which would then have been

able to track down owner

Mackenzie Kane and send him

home.

Baxter must have done a

runner in recent days, which as

it turns out was a good thing.

Someone else found him, did

the right thing and Baxter was

reunited with Mackenzie.

A lovely story and what a

cracker pic from photographer

Martin Hunter.

On another note, probably

worrying times for parents in

south Christchurch. Read our

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first trotting meeting held at Lancaster

Park on May 29, 1886. On the same day in 1926 a broadcast

from a rugby match at Lancaster Park was New Zealand’s first.

Commentator Allan Allardyce was soon to pioneer broadcasts of

racing, cricket and hockey for station 3YA. He also gave live coverage

of Kingsford-Smith’s landing at Wigram in 1928. In 1967 the new

Bank of New Zealand building in Cathedral Square was opened. On

June 1, 1862, Christchurch Hospital was opened on site in Hagley

Park. But only after the first vigorous Hands off Hagley protests by

irate citizens. On June 1, 1961, television transmission began on

CHTV 3. On June 2, 1874, The Press started publishing an evening

paper, The Globe, to compete with The Star. It became The Telegraph,

then The Truth then Evening News. Publication ceased in May 1917.

On June 4, 1864, a fire in Colombo St destroyed buildings between

Hereford and Cashel Sts.

More problems for Maddie

Teenager

determined

to beat

illness

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MADDIE COLLINS has spent

most of her life battling kidney

failure – now the 13-year-old

has been dealt another lifethreatening

blow.

She was told last week while

at Starship Hospital for kidney

treatment that her heart is also

failing.

If Maddie had a successful

kidney transplant, her heart

could recover, but without one,

she would be at risk of a heart

attack, her mother Sarah Manson

Collins said.

The news had hit Maddie and

the whole family hard, she said.

“She was in the room when

they told us and she said, ‘okay,

how many months have I got to

live?’ We said, ‘no, it’s not like

that, you’re going to be okay,’”

she said.

Kidney problems can force the

heart to pump harder, putting a

lot of strain on it. An American

study has found children on dialysis

for kidney problems were

1000 times more likely to have a

fatal heart attack.

The family has been fundraising

to take Maddie to The John

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

United States, next month where

more advanced treatment may

make it easier to match a donated

kidney.

In 2012, her father, Adam Collins,

donated one of his kidneys

to Maddie, but her body rejected

it.

“We know we’re fighting

uphill to find a match for Maddie,

but you’ve got to believe in

miracles,” Mrs Manson Collins

said.

The treatment offered in the

United States would make it

less likely Maddie’s body would

reject a donated kidney.

However, it comes at a price –

the full treatment is expected to

cost about $350,000.

Givealittle pages have already

raised more than $80,000 for

Maddie, and people in the community

had also been incredibly

generous, Mrs Manson Collins

said.

Many people, from family

members to total strangers, had

also volunteered to be tested to

see if their kidneys might be a

match for Maddie.

She had no idea how many, as

the family were not allowed to

know unless a match was found.

But even though none so far

had matched Maddie, Mrs Manson

Collins said every person

willing to donate an organ had

helped someone.

“It’s not just about Maddie.

We don’t have enough organ

donors and that’s what this is

about, so if I can make more

people talk about organ donations

I’ll have succeeded,” she

said.

She said Maddie had been

finding things tough, as her

treatment meant she missed a

lot at her school, St Margaret’s

College, and couldn’t do many

things with her friends.

“People say she looks so well,

she looks so healthy, but you

don’t see kidney failure until

you lift up her shirt and see all

those lines in her body,” she

said.

HOPEFUL: Maddie Collins

and her mum Sarah Manson

Collins learned last week

that Maddie’s kidney disease

has caused early stage heart

failure – but they are hopeful

she will recover with quick

treatment. PHOTO: MARTIN

HUNTER

But she said Maddie’s love for

animals, the people around her

and her passion for life kept her

strong.

“Maddie is incredible. When

she gets on her pony everything

is right for her, even though I

know how much energy it takes

her to ride. Her inner strength

puts some of us to shame sometimes,”

she said.

In Brief

CRASH VICTIM NAMED

The man who died when the car

he was a passenger in crashed

into a Mairehau house last week

has been named. He was 26-yearold

Bjorn Jabez James Mokoraka

Waiti. The crash happened on

Friday just after 10pm. The driver

was taken to hospital with serious

injuries. The investigation into

the crash is ongoing. Meanwhile,

a 24-year-old killed when his

vehicle crashed into a tree on

Easterbrook Rd, Fernside, on

Tuesday morning has been

named as Ethan Crone.

RISK OF MYRTLE RUST

Myrtle rust disease which can

kill native trees could reach

Christchurch. City council

head of parks Andrew Rutledge

said the disease, recently

discovered in New Zealand,

was likely to reach Christchurch

“at some point”. Myrtle rust is

an invasive fungus that attacks

members of the myrtle family

of plants, such as manuka, rata,

kanuka and pohutukawa, feijoa

and eucalyptus.

SHOPLIFTER DETAINED

Customers held onto a shoplifter

who tried to steal tobacco at

a Riccarton dairy until police

arrived on Tuesday night. A

23-year-old woman allegedly

grabbed a packet of tobacco

and attempted to run from the

Naresh Foodstore on Riccarton

Rd at about 7.45pm. Police said

the offender had been charged

with assault and will appear in

the district court tomorrow.

RYMAN RESIDENT STUDY

Residents and staff at Ryman

Healthcare’s retirement villages

have raised $330,000 to fund a

heart research project. The money

will fund the Heart Foundation

Clinical Fellowship, a three-year

study into cardiovascular disease,

run by the Christchurch Heart

Institute. The study will begin in

Christchurch this year and look

into cardiovascular disease in

residents of Ryman Healthcare

facilities.

Gang member jailed for $1m drug bust

• By Sam Hurley

GANG INVOLVEMENT in

the methamphetamine supply

into Christchurch has been

played out at the High Court at

Auckland.

Rebels Outlaw motor-cycle

gang member Daryn Bruce

Catley, 31, has been jailed this

week for nine years for his role in

smuggling more than $1 million

of the highly addictive drug.

Catley, 31, was arrested in September

2015 as part of Operation

Tea, an investigation in to large

amounts of methamphetamine

that were being sourced in

Auckland by organised criminal

groups and transported to

Christchurch by air and vehicles.

In Auckland, late on September

13, 2015, Catley gave his

co-offender, Stephen Hames

Harland, a black Nike bag full

of meth and instructed him to

drive a rental car to Christchurch,

court documents show.

Catley was to travel to

Christchurch separately and

meet Harland to secure the

drugs.

The following morning

Harland drove to Wellington to

board the Interislander ferry to

Picton at 8.30pm.

But at midnight, as Harland

drove off the ferry and on to

the Picton wharf, armed police

swooped.

Inside the Nike bag was 1.15kg

of meth, worth $1.15m on the

street, a further $2930 and three

cellphones.

But the Interislander bust was

just the start of a joint police

operation and 60min later police

stormed Catley’s Christchurch

home, known to be the Rebels

club rooms.

A sawn-off .22 rifle was found,

along with a small amount of

meth, more than $5200, and

Rebels paraphernalia.

Later that morning another

home in Greenlane, Auckland,

also listed to Catley, was raided

and 12.5g of meth was found,

some in plastic lock bags; along

with several glass “P” pipes,

scales, $152,100 of cash in a

wardrobe safe, $6790 strewn

across the lounge, and $4000 in

a Subaru.

Catley was also found to be in

possession of a Taser.

In court, defence counsel

Mathew Goodwin disputed the

Crown’s calculation for the value

of the meth in the Nike bag.

He said estimates from 2015

show that, per gram, meth was

$600 to $700.

However, Goodwin and the

Crown accepted there was a level

of sophistication to the drug

trade.

But the court heard that the

kingpin of the operation has

escaped prosecution for the trade

because of a lack of evidence

linking him to the crimes.

The person that rented the

car for Mr Harland, both parties

agree, is at the top level of the

chain. He’s in charge of everything,”

Mr Goodwin said.

He added Catley was a “raging”

meth addict and was

brought into the drug operation

“late in the piece.”

“He dipped his paws into it

and [that’s why] his fingerprints

are on the packages.”

Justice Mark Woolford said although

Catley wasn’t the top dog

in the trade he was “certainly

involved in the logistical chain.”

“You had some leadership role

in the gang. Either way I’m satisfied

that you played a meaningful

role.”

Judge Woolford said Catley

was the “treasurer” for the Rebels

and trusted with significant

amounts of money.

“Even if higher members

were involved, senior members

imposed significant trust and

responsibility in you.”

However, when sentencing

Catley, Judge Woolford said

there were genuine elements of

remorse and noted Catley’s addiction

motivated him to offend.

“You can relate to what your

drug customers are going

through given your own use.

Methamphetamine offending

has an enormous impact on

society.”

He said Catley’s family, of

whom his mum, dad and aunt

were in court, wanted to see him

“change in the future and head

down a different course.”

Goodwin said his client had

kicked his drug habit after

time in custody, in spite of

the “temptations in the prison

system.”

After Catley was sentenced on

his three drugs and one weapons-related

charges, he was led

away to the cells, past his tearful

family in the public gallery.

Woolford asked the young

man’s emotional mother to

offer her son “continuing support.”

Harland is due to be sentenced

next week.

Bypass takes shape

THIS IS what the Western

Belfast Bypass looks like two

years after work started.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency released drone footage

this week of the $122 million

project which will see a new

four-lane, 5km stretch of highway

constructed.

Bypassing Belfast, it will extend

the Christchurch Northern

Motorway (SH1) and connect

into State Highway 1/ Johns Rd,

west of The Groynes entrance.

The bypass is part of the Government’s

Christchurch Roads

of National Significance programme,

a multi-million dollar

plan to make it easier and safer

to travel throughout Christchurch

and the Canterbury region.

NZTA Christchurch highways

manager Colin Knaggs said the

project, which got under way

two years ago this month, is

about 80 per cent complete.

“Over 375,000 hours have

been worked on this project so

far and it is progressing well as

this drone footage shows,” Mr

Knaggs said.

The Fulton Hogan construction

team are currently focusing

on three new bridges which

will carry the Western Belfast

Bypass above Groynes Dr and

Dickeys Rd, and over a new onramp

that will link Main North

Rd to the Northern Motorway.”

These three structures are a

major part of the project and

are now close to being finished

which is a great milestone for

the project team.

Mr Knaggs said a lot of the

work that went into these

bridges is underground, hidden

from view.

“Before the project team

could start building they had to

carry out ground improvement

work, constructing around 2400

columns of gravel and stone into

the ground to make it denser,”

he said.

“This reduces the effects of

liquefaction and ensures the

bridge embankments remain

stable, preventing damage to

the bridge structures during an

earthquake.”

In addition, more than

30 steel encased reinforced

concrete piles support each

structure and extend 18 to 20m

below ground level.

The drone footage shows the

2km long mid-section of the

project which has been out of

public view during construction.

“Aside from some road marking

and other minor finishing

touches, this section of the

project is also close to being

finished,” Mr Knaggs said.

The bypass is expected to be

complete by early 2018.

Baxter returns home

•Form page 1

Mackenzie Kane had given up

on ever seeing her little dog again.

Baxter escaped one evening in

March last year, after someone

left their garage door open.

She had done everything she

could to try to find him – walked

the streets, posted on Facebook

groups, and called the pound and

the city council so many times

they knew her by name.

Every few weeks she would get

another call about a bichon frise

someone had found, and every

time she would again be hopeful

it might be Baxter – but each time

her hopes would be dashed.

“I gave up hope by the end of it.

It’s kind of heart-breaking. Every

time I saw a bichon on the street

I’d wonder, is it him?” she said.

On Monday, she got the call

she had been waiting more than

a year for.

Baxter had been found.

Mackenzie’s mother, Christine

Kane, picked Baxter up. He looked

a little scruffy, but well fed.

As soon as Mackenzie finished

work she drove straight to see

him.

She said it was an emotional

reunion, with a lot of wet kisses.

“I was worried after 14 months

he wouldn’t recognise me, but he

did. He did his party trick, which

was dancing on his back legs, and

he was doing his excited whimper,”

she said.

Baxter was microchipped and

wearing a collar with his dog

registration number on it, which

he was still wearing when found

in Hornby.

Mackenzie said someone must

have been feeding him over the

past year and she was grateful for

that, but if they had taken him to

any vet or called the city council,

they could have easily found the

family and saved a lot of heartbreak.

She was just glad to have him

back, she said.

“We’ll never know where he’s

been. Baxter must have some stories,

but he can’t tell us,” she said.

Brownlee put on spot over knowledge

• By David Fisher

TENSION OVER the rules

governing the release of

Government-held information

to the public have led to

questions over Gerry Brownlee’s

knowledge of the Official

Information Act.

Mr Brownlee the Minister of

Foreign Affairs, told the New

Zealand Herald he had experienced

“frustration” over uncertainty

about when information

could be released to the public

and when it could be properly

withheld.

In an effort to get more details,

Mr Brownlee, the former Minister

supporting Christchurch

Regenertion, sent the Office of

the Ombudsman an Official

Information Act request.

The problem? A basic principle

of the OIA is that offices of Parliament

– including the Office

of the Ombudsman – are not

covered by the legislation.

Documents released to

the Herald show Mr Brownlee’s

request failed to result in the

documents he asked for and instead

led to a meeting with Chief

Ombudsman Judge Peter Boshier

– who he called “Mr Boshier”

throughout an interview on the

UNEASE: Gerry Brownlee and Chief Ombudsman Judge Peter Boshier.

issue with the Herald.

Herald: “It’s Judge Boshier isn’t

it?”

Mr Brownlee: “I don’t think

so.”

Herald: “He’s still a judge.”

Mr Brownlee: “You can call

him what you want. I don’t believe

he has a warrant.”

Judge Boshier – and, yes, he

retains his title – would not be

interviewed for this story but

documents released through the

Official Information Act show

reflected tensions inside the Government.

He wrote that after meeting

Mr Brownlee he was “genuinely

worried” the Government believed

the rules had changed and

the Office of the Ombudsman

wanted “everything released”.

The Official Information Act

is designed to make Ministers

and officials accountable, and to

allow the public greater involvement

in the creation and operation

of laws and policies.

But it has come under pressure

in recent years with changes in

Government structure, practice

and changes in technology.

As a result, a 2015 review by

the Office of the Ombudsman

found “ministerial officials

pressured agencies to alter their

responses” and mixed advice on

how to respond to requests.

It followed a State Services

Commission survey which found

just 24 per cent of public servants

were familiar with the Ombudsman’s

Official Information Act

guidelines.

And it came after criticism over

the Government’s handling of

OIA requests, including former

Prime Minister John Key’s admission

the Government deliberately

delayed releasing information if it

suited its purposes to do so.

Mr Brownlee told the Herald:

“Of course I know the Office [of

the Ombudsman] is not subject

to the OIA.

“I was trying to make the point

that if you want to have a truly

free and open society . . . the

Ombudsman’s office is not a Star

Chamber or an inquisitor. It’s a

body that’s designed to treat all

New Zealanders fairly and that

means us [government] too.”

He said he had “discussions

with Mr Boshier that left me

with questions” and he hoped

the OIA request would provide

answers.

The paper trail between Mr

Brownlee’s office and the Office

of the Ombudsman showed

he made his OIA request after

learning Judge Boshier had

overturned a decision by the

Earthquake Commission to

withhold information being

sought under the OIA. Mr

Brownlee is Minister Responsible

for the EQC.

Mr Brownlee referred to a

statement that the Office of the

Ombudsman intended to carry

out a series of “proactive investigations”

into OIA practices by

those subject to the Act.

He stated that he sought “under

the provisions of the OIA”

any “memos, emails, phone records,

meeting agendas, dates on

which this matters was discussed

and any other material relating

to proactive ongoing investigations.”

of Official Information Act

In response, Judge Boshier

said: “I am heartened by your

interest in this area.” While he

added that he would “greatly

appreciate the opportunity to

discuss this with you in person”,

none of the information Mr

Brownlee sought was supplied.

Instead, Judge Boshier and Mr

Brownlee met on September 8 in

a conversation that left the Chief

Ombudsman with a feeling of

“unease”.

The comment is revealed in an

email from Judge Boshier to Andrew

Kibblewhite, chief executive

of the Department of Prime

Minister and Cabinet, who had a

staff member at the meeting.

Judge Boshier wrote: “Unless

I am mistaken, there is a

perception that our Office wants

everything released. The Minister

approached this meeting in

quite a businesslike fashion, and

I think the reason for that was

a genuine perception that the

rules have changed and that we

are pushing for a wider range of

ministerial advice and briefings

to be released.

“I am genuinely worried about

this perception.”

He told Mr Kibblewhite he

hoped the briefing he got from

his staffer showed “the rules have

not changed at all”.

Judge Boshier took over the

role in December 2015 and has

been regarded by some as overseeing

a sea-change in the Office

of the Ombudsman, which was

struggling under the burden of a

massive workload and investigations

which were long-delayed.

But his approach has caused

nervousness in some parts of

government after the office’s support

for the release of information

traditionally believed to be

safe from scrutiny.

That has included advice from

officials, legal advice and other

closely held material.

Mr Brownlee told the Herald

he felt “frustration,” rejecting

any suggestion his ill-aimed OIA

request was placing pressure on

the Office of the Ombudsman.

“I appreciate the importance of

the OIA in a democracy,” he said.

He said there was a lack of

certainty around when information

should be withheld from

public release in cases of “free

and frank advice” from officials

- withheld so as to promote open

advice to ministers – or commercial

information, which was

also considered sensitive.

He said he accepted everything

that was done in government

would be made public

eventually - but some information

needed to operate under

a cloak to be most effective for

citizens.

Auckland University of Technology

lecturer Greg Treadwell,

who has carried out doctoral

research on the OIA, viewed Mr

Brownlee’s letter to the Office

of the Ombudsman and asked:

“What’s he doing?”

At first glance, he said it

appeared Mr Brownlee didn’t

know basic OIA principles even

though he was approaching the

end of a third term as Cabinet

minister.

“This is why I think it is a

deliberate shot across the bows.

He appears to be angry with the

Ombudsman’s [EQC] decision

and that seems almost inappropriate

to start demanding voluminous

amounts of information.

That’s not quite ministerial

behaviour.”

Labour’s Megan Woods, who

speaks on Canterbury issues,

said during Mr Brownlee’s

period as Minister for the EQC,

people in Christchurch had

resorted to using the OIA to get

updates on their claims over

earthquake damage.

The ability to do that was

hugely important to people.”​

CCTV

cameras

for Woolston

• By Noah Graham

STREET surveillance cameras

have gone up on Ferry Rd in an

attempt to thwart robberies in the

Woolston Village.

Last week, city council installed

two sets of CCTV cameras on

traffic lights outside Cycle Around

Again and the Woolston Tavern

to help monitor the road and protect

Woolston Village shops.

The Woolston Discounter has

been a frequent target over the

past year with nine robberies taking

place in seven months.

It was hit again on Sunday

when a man armed with a pistol

attempted to take cigarettes and

lollies but dropped most of the

items on the way out of the store.

Store owner Sujan Barra said he

had not been told of the surveillance

cameras but hoped they

would prevent his shop from being

a frequent target.

The Ferry Rd Night ‘n Day store

has also been a target, having

been robbed 10 times in the past

nine months.

Owner of the convenience store

David Lee said with the cameras

installed he “certainly feels safer.”

Missing man: Police still tight-lipped

• By Kurt Bayer

POLICE ARE remaining tightlipped

over their investigation

into the out-of-character

disappearance of builder Michael

Craig McGrath.

Mr McGrath, 49, was last

seen at his Checketts Ave home,

Halswell, on May 21.

A large police investigation is

under way to

find him.

Yesterday

morning,

detectives

showed Mr

Michael

McGrath

McGrath’s

family, including

his mother,

Adrienne, and brother Simon,

through his deserted home.

Police have spent several days

examining the property, but

by yesterday an army-style tent

used to store evidence had been

removed.

The house remained taped off,

with a mobile police base, a security

guard and two unmarked

police cars parked on the street.

Police started knocking his

neighbours’ doors last Thursday

and remained in the area yesterday.

Approached for an update into

MYSTERY: Police at Mr McGrath’s Halswell property.

the probe, a police spokeswoman

would only say: “The missing

person investigation continues.

No further updates at this stage.”

His brother Simon says while

there will “obviously going to

be all sorts of theories” about

the disappearance, the family is

focusing on any sightings of him

or his blue 1994 Subaru Legacy

station wagon.

In a Facebook plea for information,

Simon said: “Very unlike

him to go walking – has never

done so before and he has been

in good spirits.”

He also wrote that the family

was “up and down.”

“At this stage, all we can

mainly do is hope.”

Simon McGrath referred other

inquiries to police.

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney, who is leading the

investigation, said police “have

concerns for his welfare”.

It remains a missing persons

investigation, police say.

Missing person posters have

been placed around the area.

On Friday, police cordoned off

his well-kept red brick property

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

where he lived alone. Locals say

there has been a lot of police

activity over the past four days.

One neighbour said police

came to her last Thursday wanting

to eliminate her silver car

from their inquiries.

“It’s really strange. It has us all

worried,” she said.

Mr McGrath’s blue station

wagon was taken away from his

property – just a few doors down

from where “Black Widow”

Helen Milner fatally poisoned

Phil Nisbet in May 2009 – at the

weekend.

Detective Inspector Sweeney

is appealing for sightings of the

Subaru over the weekend of May

20-22 in the Halswell area.

Neighbours have described

Mr McGrath as a quiet man who

rarely had visitors.

“We hardly see him,” one

neighbour said.

“My kids say ‘hi’ to him when

he’s out gardening and when he

was out biking which he did a lot.”

She said everyone was “really

worried”, especially at the

mounting police activity.

A local shopkeeper said Mr

McGrath came in occasionally

– but again said he was a very

quiet, solitary figure.

She also had concerns for his

welfare.

“It’s just fingers crossed really,”

she said.

•Anyone who has

information about Mr

McGrath or has employed

him in the past few weeks is

asked to phone Christchurch

Thou shall not steal

• By Andrew King

PEOPLE ATTENDING church

during the evening have been

coming out to find their cars

broken into, with one parishioner

losing $5000.

Cars parked at St Teresa of

Lisieux Parish on Puriri St,

Riccarton, and Our Lady of

Victories Parish on Main South

Rd, Sockburn, have been targeted

on Saturday and Sunday nights

in recent weeks while the owners

attended mass.

St Teresa priest Father Antoine

Thomas said little things like

passports and bags had been taken

from cars. A woman returned

to her car a few months ago to

find it had been broken into and

$5000 missing.

Father Antoine said he did not

know why the woman had $5000

in her vehicle.

There must be a really wellorganised

gang getting around.

We have installed more lighting,

spoken with community watch

and asked for volunteers to patrol

the car park,” he said.

Sixty-four cars were broken into

last week in the Riccarton, Upper

Riccarton and Sockburn areas.

Two cars were stolen and another

four attempts had been made to

steal other cars after the owners

discovered the ignition barrels

had been forced, police said.

Majority of the cars were targeted

on Centennial Ave, Rattray

St, Matipo St, Mandeville St and

Brockworth Pl, with 20 broken

into on Saturday night alone.​

It comes after about 12 vehicles

were broken into around the

POLICE WILL not say if they

plan to charge a pensioner

over the crash near Sumner

which tragically killed his

wife, 73-year-old Maureen

Imrie.

Bruce Imrie was driving

home with his wife in the

afternoon on March 25 when

he crashed.

Witnesses saw the car drive

straight off the road, crashing

through a barrier and down a

bank into the sea.

They were able to pull Mr

Imrie out of the car, but the

car was swept away to sea by

an undertow before they were

able to rescue Mrs Imrie.

A police spokeswoman

said the investigation into the

crash was still ongoing. She

would not say if police were

considering laying charges.

charges over the death of his

Mr Imrie said he was not

worried by the investigation,

but just hoped it would be

completed soon.

He said he had told police

all he could, but said he had

“blanked out” before the

crash.

He was still struggling with

the loss of his wife of 55 years,

his family, he said.

Manson family Canty’s best kept secret

Pioneers

overcome

adversity

Latest Christchurch news at www.

.kiwi

Thursday June 1 2017

• By Gabrielle Stuart

SHIPWRECKS, AN armed

robbery, and a baby born at

sea – they were just some of the

challenges one of Christchurch’s

first pioneering families faced,

yet their names are barely

remembered.

Samuel and Jean Manson

and their children arrived

in Lyttelton with the Deans

brothers in 1843, years before the

First Four Ships arrived in 1850.

But while the Deans family

is widely honoured for their

pioneering work, the Manson

family, and the other settlers

with them, the Gebbie family,

are not well known.

Yesterday, descendants of

the Manson family gathered at

Deans Bush to honour them,

placing a memorial plaque and

planting an oak tree dedicated to

them.

A great-grandaughter of

Mr and Mrs Manson, Janet

O’Loughlin, has gathered a lot of

the family’s history in a book.

She said they had some

incredible adventures.

Mr Manson, a carpenter, made

the four-month journey from

Scotland to work for the Deans,

travelling with his heavily

pregnant wife and two young

children.

Their baby was born two weeks

into the voyage, delivered by the

ship doctor – and meanwhile

their three-year-old daughter

caught measles and their twoyear-old

son had to be treated for

a bad cough.

While wealthier families such

as the Deans stayed in cabins,

the Mason family were in

cramped berths below deck, Mrs

O’Loughlin said.

The migrant sailing ships

were set low in the water, their

decks constantly being swept by

heavy seas which leaked onto

the berths below deck, making

PIONEERS: Early settlers Samuel and Jean Manson with their 17 children in 1864, who farmed

and built on thousands of acres around Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

them damp and unpleasant and

causing hordes of cockroaches to

emerge from their hiding places,”

she said in the book, Mindful of

My Origin.

According to the ship records,

there were 40 cases of measles

and some of whooping cough

during the 150-day voyage, and

two children died during the

journey.

But the Manson family

survived and made it safely

to Nelson. From there they

travelled with the Deans

brothers and Gebbie family

to Wellington, and then to a

whalers’ settlement at Port

Levy.

They travelled by boat up the

Avon River to Riccarton, where

Mr Manson built two homes for

the families, using wooden pegs

because their nails had been left

behind.

While in Scotland the Manson

and Gebbie families would have

been classed servants of the

Deans, in the new settlement

they lived and worked together,

Mrs O’Loughlin said.

They all pitched in together,

I don’t think there was any

hierarchy there. The Deans,

being lawyers, were very helpful

when the Mansons and Gebbies

were buying their own land. So

they had to rely on one another

to survive,” she said.

After helping to build and

establish the Deans settlement,

Mr Manson and Mr Gebbie

negotiated with local Maori to

lease land on the other side of

the hills between Governors Bay

and Charteris Bay, and they also

brought 14 cows each from the

Deans brothers.

They set off to their new home

in 1845 in canoes, but halfway

there a storm came up and

capsized the boat. The families

survived, but lost a lot of their

provisions and spent a cold night

sheltering in a cave.

Mrs Manson was again heavily

pregnant at the time, and gave

birth to their fifth child later that

month, while the family were

living in a tent.

After a year’s work establishing

their farm, they had stored up

700 pounds of butter and 300

pounds of cheese ready to sell.

But they were hit by another

disaster at sea.

The ship taking all their

produce to sell at the port sunk

during the journey, and they lost

everything.

After the disaster Mr Manson

began working for other settlers

to make money, leaving Mrs

Manson alone to manage the

milking, the running of the farm

and their five children, all under

six-years-old.

Later the same year, three men

from the Blue Cap Gang arrived

at the settlement claiming to be

shipwrecked sailors.

DESCENDANTS:

family gathered

planting in

Deans Bush.

HUNTER

Mrs Manson gave them food

and beds for the night, and

directed them to the nearby

Greenwood mill to find work.

The Greenwood family also

took the men in and gave them

work, but when everyone was

gathered for the evening meal

that night the gang held up

the household at gunpoint,

stealing their money, guns and

matches.

The men were later arrested,

but after the experience several

Maori men stayed on the farm

with Mrs Manson to protect the

family while Mr Manson was

away for work.

The family’s luck eventually

turned, and they went on to buy

and farm more than 30 land

plots in Banks Peninsula.

They had 17 children over 24

years, and their descendents

made a huge contribution to

the developing colony, Mrs

O’Loughlin said.

The family’s stone cottage at

Orton Bradley Park is now the

oldest surviving stone building

in Canterbury. It was badly

damaged in the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes but is being rebuilt,

and is set to open as a museum

and information centre.

Three oak trees were originally

planted in August 1994

commemorating the Deans,

Gebbie and Manson families’

work, but the Manson tree had to

be cut down in April.

The new tree was planted in its

place.

Darfield water judged the best in New Zealand

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DARFIELD HAS the

best-tasting drinking water in

New Zealand.

A blind taste test at the

New Zealand Water Industry

Operators Group conference

decided the township has the

tastiest water.

It comes after a major

upgrade to the Darfield water

supply in 2014 with the installation

of two deep ground

bores, a 1000m3 concrete reservoir

and a booster pumping

station.

A district council spokeswoman

said the bores source

the artesian water from deep

underground meaning the

water is naturally filtered providing

a safe supply.

Mayor Sam Broughton, who

lives in Darfield, said it was

nice to celebrate some good

news after the improvements

were made.

He said the two bores provide

an increase in reliability

over the summer and if work

needed to be done on either of

the bores the supply will still be

continuous.

“I do enjoy the taste of water.

It’s fresh,” Mr Broughton said.

Darfield Community Committee

chairman and Malvern

Butchery owner Paddy McKay

said the water quality speaks

for itself and it is pretty good.

The judging panel made up

of representatives from the

WIOG, chemical company

IXOM and Altitude Brewing

decided Darfield had the besttasting

water based on how it

looks, smells and tastes.

The improved quality is a

large turn-around in the township’s

water supply.

In 2012, animal effluent in

Darfield’s water supply was

the cause of a gastroenteritis

outbreak affecting more than

110 people.

Doing their bit for the rebuild

The Brown family has

been in the grocery

industry for 145

years – and in August

they will open their

newest supermarket,

FreshChoice City

Market. Bridget

Rutherford reports

FOR THE Browns, the grocery

industry is a family business.

They have been providing

Cantabrians with fresh produce,

food and bakery supplies for 145

years.

And come August, they

will open their newest store,

FreshChoice City Market, in The

Crossing on Lichfield St.

It wasn’t a decision Neville and

Heather Brown made lightly.

The city was suffering following

the devastating February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Heather said they wanted to do

their part in its regeneration.

“For us it was about the CBD

and what we could do to contribute

to the rebuild with what we

know how to do.

“We understand that supermarkets

are part of essential

services and are important in

building communities. They are

pivotal points for people to meet

and feel comfortable. We want

people to feel at home and they

are part of our business. Everything

we do, we do with them at

the top of our mind.”

She said their family was committed

to Christchurch.

“A supermarket in the CBD

was a way Neville and I thought

we could help the city regenerate

and bring back a sense of normality.”

It hasn’t been a quick process.

Heather said they first approached

the Carter Group in

2012 about including a supermarket

in the CBD, and it had been

a huge job trying to bring it to

fruition.

Although FreshChoice City

COMMITTED: Neville and Heather Brown say they wanted to help regenerate the city centre

following the February 22, 2011, earthquake in the way they knew how – opening FreshChoice

City Market.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Market has taken about five years

to develop, the family journey

began in 1872.

It was then when Neville’s

great, great, great grandparents

Charlie and Annie Chivers

opened the Otipua General Store

near Timaru.

In the 1930s, his great uncle,

John Renfrew Brown, owned

a bakery and delivery truck in

Dunedin.

Neville bought his first supermarket

at the age of 22 in 1972.

In total, the Browns have

owned seven supermarkets

across South Canterbury and

Canterbury.

They have owned FreshChoice

Barrington since 1993.

But the tradition doesn’t stop

there.

The Brown’s three sons grew up

working in their supermarkets

during school holidays and spent

a lot of time in them.

After going overseas and taking

different career paths, they all

decided to come back and go into

the same business.

Their eldest, Julian and his

wife Kirsty, bought FreshChoice

Parklands in 2005.

Their middle son, Nick, owns

FAMILY

BUSINESS:

Neville Brown’s

great uncle,

John Renfrew

Brown, owned

a bakery and

delivery truck in

Dunedin during

the 1930s.

SuperValue Sumner and The

Bottle-O Sumner, and is supported

by his wife Anna.

And their youngest, Scot and

wife Jenna, own private beer

and wine labels, including Black

Thistle Wines and Boss Brewing

Craft Beers.

Scot also works in his parents’

businesses.

Neville and Heather are

pleased to have all of their sons in

the industry.

“It’s a very exciting business

to be in, it’s constantly changing

and challenging,” Heather said.

Neville has been in the business

for 51 years, while Heather

had marked just under 30.

But they say they could not

continue to do it without their

customers and loyal, hardworking

and skilled staff.

The attention to detail that’s

required to get everything right,

every day, is probably the biggest

challenge.”

Heather said they had a great

team of people around them.

“Over the years you built loyalty,

you build skill and you build

a culture. You couldn’t do it without

the expertise, the loyalty and

the hard work of a lot of people.

They are why this business is so

stimulating and rewarding.”

Although the family has been

in the industry for more than a

century – they are moving with

the times.

Heather said they spent a lot

of time overseas looking at what

they could do differently with

FreshChoice City Market, and

what was required in the new era

with the rebuild.

“That’s why we wanted to do

something slightly different

than the traditional format.

FreshChoice City Market would

expand on the fresh, artisan,

locally-produced and grown

products highlighting and

showcasing some of Canterbury’s

finest food specialists,” she said.

The supermarket will also be

providing a full range of everyday

groceries.”

It would also have a convenient

espresso bar at the entrance to

the store for people wanting a

quick caffeine shot on the run,

she said.

“We will be providing a onestop

full service range of the best

products at the best prices for

busy people working in the city,

for shoppers, and tourists.

“FreshChoice City Market will

be part of your day, every day.”

Cathedral solution sought

CHRIST CHURCH Cathedral

is once again at the centre of

much — often heated — debate.

Its future is a heritage issue, a

community issue and a church

issue but it is not a political issue.

With that in mind, I hosted

a meeting of Christchurch

Members of Parliament late

last week to seek cross-party

support for the Government’s

commitment to brokering a

solution.

I firmly believe we need an

agreed solution and we need

it sooner rather than later.

Agreement is vital because any

decision that ties everyone up

in court for five to 10 years is no

decision at all.

Immediately after the meeting

I released the Cathedral Working

Group Recommendation

Report, which recommends

reinstatement. It estimates the

cost at $105 million — to be

funded by philanthropic and

public donations, the church’s

insurance proceeds and support

from central and local government.

About half of Christchurch

wants to see the Cathedral

reinstated, the other half wants

something new and more

modern, but everyone believes

we need a decision as soon as

possible.

As a resident of Christchurch,

I share the community’s frustration,

and as Regeneration Minister,

I’m committed to helping

break the current deadlock.

I will continue to work closely

with the Anglican Church,

the city council and other key

stakeholders to discuss all possible

solutions.

Nicky Wagner

Also late last week, Mayor

Lianne Dalziel and I released

the terms of reference for a

pre-feasibility study into a new

multi-use arena.

The pre-feasibility study

will consider the size, cost and

viability of an arena, as well as

opportunities for a wider ‘Arena

Precinct’.

The terms of reference

include a number of important

considerations, particularly

around the operational and

financial viability of the arena

model.

Any potential development

will likely need to be a multiuse

sports and entertainment

venue to maximise opportunities

for regional, national and

international events.

Christchurch Stadium Trust,

which is undertaking the prefeasibility

study, will report back

by the end of July.

•Nicky Wagner is Minister

supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Budget falls short

BUDGET 2017 was a

let-down.

National squandered

the chance to rebuild

our battered health and

education systems and

to address the housing

crisis. Instead, they’ve gone for an

election year Budget with an eye

for the upcoming election, not the

21 st century. It doesn’t have new

thinking in it, it doesn’t show how

our economy is going to create

decent work with higher wages,

and it doesn’t support Kiwis to

get the knowledge and training

opportunities to participate in the

new economy.

Instead, what we saw were the

classic election sweeteners of

tax cuts. In spite of the rhetoric,

the reality is National’s package

does not deliver for those most

in need. While I’ll get a tax cut of

around $20 per week, the person

who cleans my Wellington office

receives around $1 per week. This

is neither right nor fair. Labour

can’t support an approach that

increases inequality.

I know that for people in Wigram,

any extra money gained

through these tax cuts is an

illusion. The extra money will be

eaten up with the increased cost

of visiting the GP that doctors

warned about following Thursday’s

Budget. They will also have

to continue to dip deeper into

their pockets to help out the local

school as there is an $80m shortfall

in education funding.

Tragically, there was nothing

to release the pressure on our

cash-strapped Canterbury District

Health Board, which is struggling

to balance the broader health

needs of the city with the specific

mental health crisis. Currently, the

CBHB is operating on a deficit of

$45.27 million – and this funding

increase of $39.68 million doesn’t

cover it.

What we need are some fresh

ideas to make sure all New Zealanders

receive their fair share of

the prosperity. A Labour Government

will invest in a health system

that meets the need of our growing

population. We will invest in

an education system that prepares

people for the 21st century. We

will clean up our rivers and make

the Kiwi dream of home-ownership

a reality again.

Last week The Star

reported three of the

city’s power brokers,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

Minister supporting

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Nicky

Wagner and CDHB acting

chief executive Mary

Gordon had not talked

about the possibility of

turning part of Hagley

Park into temporary car

parking for the hospital

Readers respond to the

hospital car parking debacle

Alan Hane – Build a large

underground car park beneath

Hagley Park fully security

camera monitored, with an

underground tunnel to the

hospital basement floor. Could

even have an autonomous rail

loops or moving floors like

airports.

Cheryl Hanham – Actually

stop allowing Wilsons car park

to monopolies empty grounds.

Get them back and put a couple

of car park buildings up instead.

Have look at the app ParkMate,

it’s unbelievable how many

Wilsons there are.

Rohanne Compton – Have

the people who support this

thought about the logistics of

getting in and out of this part of

the park? Then getting across to

the hospital if you’re disabled?

Also bet the support disappears

once they realise it won’t be free

parking.

Rohanne Compton –

Maybe they need to reintroduce

parking charges at the hospital.

I’ve seen people parking at the

hospital using the disabled

parking and have noticed that

many are actually very able

bodied people accompanying

a disabled/elderly person and

wondered why they don’t drop

off the patient then use the park

’n’ ride or the nearby Wilsons

parks and leave the disabled

parking for the unaccompanied

patients/visitors who really

do need to park close. Is it

because the disabled parking is

free?

Elizabeth Lubbers – Build

one beside the outpatients building

in the park if there is enough

room, no one uses that area. And

when or if the outpatients building

goes turn it into car parks

for the disabled and expecting

mums that are coming in to give

birth.

Michael Adams – Just

stop pretending, and rename it

Wilsontown. Then demolish the

Cathedral and put a Wilsons on

the site. This city is crazy.

Deb Flanagan – No way. It’s

a park leave it alone, where is the

vision. New Yorkers don’t suggest

turning its precious green space

Central Park into a car park. And

let’s be honest temporary would

end up being permanent – once

lost gone forever.

Sally Bowring – After the

earthquakes there was something

put in place so people could park

along Riccarton Ave on the grass.

Were emergency powers called

upon for this? And , if so, could

they be again until a permanent

solution is found. Sadly, and

actually very sadly the various

bodies involved can’t seem to be

able to work together. Is this a

case for a Mediator?

Beverley Murray – Just do

it. How many people will struggle

to the doors until there is a

permanent remedy. Ridiculous

state of affairs.

Nic Davies – Yes 100 per cent

agree let’s get something done

and built.

Tina Bailey – Absolutely

not. Sort out a permanent solution

asap. Car parking building

should be rebuilt on previous site

opposite the new outpatients site.

Where has the insurance money

gone from the old parking and

oral health buildings that have

been demolished?

Year-round warmth

Choosing the right heat pump is key to ensuring a warm and

comfortable home all year round. Building orientation and

insulation are key factors to selecting the right unit for your

home. With over 15 years’ experience, the family-run business

units or ventilation systems. For a free no-obligation consultation,

Design statement

Fireplaces are a key architectural design element to the home

and are often the focal point of a room. Gone are the decorative

mantels and in their place are bold design statements with angular

corners and modern shapes. We love The Hanging Fireplace – a

sculptural piece that is as much an investment in art as a solution

to warmth during the winter months.

Well-known tailor Mark van

Roosmalen’s building was

destroyed in the February 22,

2011, earthquake and moved

his business into a house on

a Fendalton street – but his

neighbours want him gone

Dani Cooper – What is

wrong with these people? He’s in

a business area anyway and he’s

a tailor! I also think the fuss over

the funeral home [Rochdale St]

is disrespectful selfish and rude.

Seriously, I would much rather live

in my rented home in North Beach

than be a stuck up self-absorbed

homeowner from Fendalton. All

they do is complain.

Allan John Fidler – I fully

sympathise with the residents

of Hamilton Ave and Otara St.

Fancy having to live with the

deafening sound of scissors and

the screeching of needle and

thread going through cloth. Back

in the 1960s Fendaltonians were

reputed to be NZ’s worst snobs and

obviously nothing has changed.

Owen Duffy – I don’t know

what is worse, these people trying

to close a business down. Or them

buying a property in Ilam and

trying to say they are in Fendalton.

Snobbery at its worst.

Corey Humm – Typical

Fendalton. Guess they asked him

what school he went to and didn’t

like the answer.

Erina Parks – Far out, it’s a

tailoring business, for goodness

sake! You people have got no

show of making him leave – after

all Manchester St residents can’t

get the city council to act on the

prostitutes leaving their rubbish

in residents’ front gardens. You

neighbours should be ashamed of

yourselves – you’re surrounded by

commercial activity. This smells of

personal vendetta.

Val Proffitt – As I was trying

to say . . . Fendalton people, how

about starting to live in the real

world. Good on you Mark van

Roosmalen, I hope your business

remains very successful.

Stella Wyn – I wonder what

is wrong with Hamilton Ave area.

Two to three years back houses

were hot in auction, but past few

months, they are not popular.

I’m puzzled. Fendalton Village

is always too crowded with cars.

Anyway, it is probably better to

have him than student rental next

door.

Josie White – I operate an

interior design business from home

in St Martins with legal street

signage. Not once has anyone

complained. Give Mark a break

please Fendalton and be thankful

you have an amazing tailor in your

vicinity.

Helen Baker – The people of

Fendalton are lucky to have such a

service in the area. It doesn’t set a

precedence at all under the terms of

the quakes effect on business in the

city. It was a unique situation that

enabled this. How precious people

can be.

Cherry Cornelius – I find

it almost as offensive that this

rubbish is reported. Residents of

any area need to we welcoming

stop any kind of abuse at its roots

and it seems in Christchurch.

It may have a deep seating in

Fendalton.

Cherie Trotter – Nearly every

suburb in NZ has a dressmaker/

alterations person working out of

their spare bedroom of their home.

Come on neighbours, get on with

your life.

Janys Rebecca Harrison –

Get over yourselves! Just be

glad that he’s a tailor, instead of

someone dodgy.

Carolyn Fraser – What a

bunch of snobs. Who do they think

they are? They would look down

their noses at any one. Keep up the

good work Mark van Roosemalen.

Francesca De Angelis –

Mark is by far the best – and only

true tailor in Christchurch. These

people have clearly too much time

in their hands to complain for the

sake of complaining. Don’t buy a

house in front of a mall if parking

overflow irritates you.

From life with the Royals to healthcare

• By Simon Collins

WHEN SHE was caught in the

grip of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, Alex Steele was

shocked into thinking about

what she had done with her life.

She decided to become a nurse.

She had already done far more

than most people dream of. She

had managed several hundred

staff at Buckingham Palace, and

later forged a career in insurance.

But as she ran down the stillshaking

stairs of the cracked

AMI Building six years ago, her

life perspective changed.

The buildings to the side of us

had fallen over,” she said.

“I immediately looked over to

where my husband’s building

was. The CTV building was

between us. It was on fire, all I

could see was smoke and dust

and I immediately thought it was

his building.”

It wasn’t, and the couple found

each other in the chaos of Latimer

Square before her husband

realised that his scooter could be

useful and started ferrying rescue

workers where they needed to go.

Alex took a long walk home to

Ilam.

“All the way home there

was liquefaction and power

lines coming down. There was

RELIEVED: Alex Steele says nursing is what she is supposed

to be doing with her life.

PHOTO: DOUG SHERRING

nowhere to run. I was thinking,

‘This could be it,’” she said. Life

could be over.

“I had a colleague who was

a volunteer ambulance officer.

As soon as we came out of the

building, he took off to the CTV

building and worked till 3am

pulling people out of the rubble.

“I thought, I would have liked

to help people in a better way

than dealing with their insurance

claims.

“I thought, healthcare is really

what I wanted to do, and that

could have been my time, and

how upset I would have been had

I spent my life not pursuing what

I wanted to be doing.”

It is her second degree. Her

first, from Canterbury University,

was in English and history,

and she walked straight out of

that into her “first grown-up job”

at Buckingham Palace. She was

22, freshly arrived on her OE.

“I saw it advertised and applied.

I thought even if I don’t

get it, just going for the interview

will be an amazing experience,”

she said.

She was hired as one of four

people managing 450 to 500 tour

guides, wardens and other staff

for Royal Collection Enterprises

– the palace’s “business arm.”

The job involved recruiting

and training staff and organising

events such as charity fundraisers,

often attended by the royals.

HOME: Alex has made the trek from Buckingham Palace to

Greenlane’s Mercy Ascot Hospital.

“I’ve met all the royal family.

If there were charities that they

were patrons of they would be

there, or sometimes you would

meet the more junior royals in

passing,” she said.

“To meet the Queen, you

would be invited to a reception

or a cocktail party – they take

really good care of their staff.

“You got to go to the Queen’s

box at the Royal Albert Hall, and

tickets to Wimbledon, cocktail

evenings with the Lord Chamberlain,

all sorts of wonderful

things.”

But Alex had left her husband

– then still her fiance – back in

Christchurch, doing his doctorate.

After three years at the

palace, she came home.

She got a job at AMI, rising to

be its training and development

manager. She and her husband

both transferred within their

companies to Auckland six

months after the quake, and Alex

kept working for AMI part-time

right through her three-year

nursing course.

She is now working night

shifts in a general surgical ward

at Mercy Ascot Hospital at

Greenlane.

“I did have that nagging doubt

about what if I get to my first

clinical placement and find it’s

not for me,” she said.

“After my first day I thought,

this is what I’m supposed to be

doing. I was really relieved. I felt

very strongly that this is what

I should be doing with my life,

and I kind of haven’t looked back

from there.”

Before you, no other woman

had ever become a principal of

a New Zealand Catholic boys’

school. Did you think back

when you first applied for the

job that you would get it?

Well, it was really bizarre,

actually. I’m from family of four

sisters, I have three daughters,

and before this I had taught

for 10 years at Villa Maria, a

girls’ school. I had taught a few

St Thomas’ boys while I was at

Villa, which is why I applied for

it, but I don’t think I seriously

thought I’d get it. But I got offered

the job in December. So I

spent the holidays stressing about

it, thinking what do I know about

boys?

Was it as challenging as you

expected?

No, since I started here, I’ve

never regretted it. There have

been challenges. There were

plenty of male candidates that

applied for the job, and most of

the teachers here are male. But

I found very quickly that you

proved yourself in your performance.

The men here were very

fair and very loyal.

I imagine it’s been a pretty

emotional few weeks since you

made the announcement you

would be stepping down – what

has it been like?

Well, we had another lovely

assembly this morning, with the

boys all singing, and after that I

thought what have I done? I don’t

regret it, but leaving is going to be

really hard. For me been a really

hard decision because this is such

a great community and I have

dedicated a good part of my life

to working here. But you know

how people say you’re ready to

go. The job is very complex and

challenging and energy-draining.

It’s like John Key said – not that

I’m comparing myself to him, but

I think the motivation is similar.

The school is absolutely humming

right now, and it’s time for

another leader to step up.

What have been some of the

highlights?

I’m really proud of the increased

diversity in the school.

When I started it was about

two per cent Maori and Pasifika

students, but now it’s about 40

per cent, with a rapidly growing

Filipino community.

Another real highlight is that

this year 39 of our 41 staff have

either completed or are completed

post-grad study. It’s a big

commitment and I don’t know of

any other school in the country

that has that happening.

We’ve also put a lot of work

into creating a restorative culture,

working with young men when

they make mistakes, to take the

fear and blame out of it, and keep

them accountable but work in a

problem-solving way. It’s about

being accountable as a school beyond

the school gate, rather than

just kicking boys out.

Without fail, every boy who

has gone himself into a tricky

situation here has been honest and

willing to take responsibility for

it, and that’s right to even the boys

who have been in and out of jail.

To see boys like that turn around

and graduate year 13 is incredibly

satisfying, just as satisfying as

seeing boys reach the pinnacle of

academic achievement.

What have been the biggest

challenges for you?

Last year there was the big

battle around racism (When a

Christ’s College under-14 rugby

player was accused of racially

abusing a St Thomas’ student at

a game). It’s hard to take those

stands, but I think that’s one

particular incident where you’ve

got to honour your community.

It would be easy to let it slide, but

that would be wrong. And we’re

richer for standing up to it.

You’ve faced personal challenges

while principal – like

your battle with cancer. How

did you handle that while doing

such a demanding job?

It was a really hard time, but

there were two things that got me

through. I’m lucky to have really

supportive husband and really

rich family life, and without that

it would be a really lonely existence.

I also have a very strong

leadership team, four men who

work with me at the core of what

we do here. We go through both

our personal and professional

journeys together, so that doesn’t

mean we always agree, but that’s

been a massive support. I don’t

do my job alone.

And if I’m ever feeling a bit

down, because it can be a highly

political job and you deal with

all sorts of issues, but if I’m ever

overwhelmed by that I just do

something with the kids. They are

so uplifting to be around. You do

see negative stuff about teenagers

in the news, but I have so much

hope for the future because they

are such a good group of kids.

What were your own school

days like?

I attended St Dominic’s in

Dunedin, where we were taught

by Dominican nuns. It was such

a paradox, because it was a semienclosed

order but yet many of the

nuns had doctorates or masters

degrees. So they were giving

lectures at the university, then zipping

back to teach at the school.

On the one hand nuns, but also

highly educated, empowered, professional

women. So I was given

a very liberal education, taught

to ask questions and challenge

things, with no sense of constraint

or having to obey religious rules.

It was very different to most

schools then, and in many ways

closer to how we teach now.

Did you get sent to the principal

much yourself, as a child?

I was a good girl at school. I

was head girl and dux. But I can

remember one nun, the music

teacher in the priory, whose

window looked out at the side

entrance gate. Sometimes we’d

try to slip out and get caught.

Some girls snuck out for a smoke,

and I didn’t smoke, but I did try

to sneak out to get lunch.

Why did you become a

teacher?

Well, I loved ancient language

and classics. I really wanted

to go into teaching because

I loved learning. My first job

was at Avonside Girls’, then

I spent a year at Hillmorton

High. Strangely enough, a lot of

principals spent time teaching at

Hillmorton, I don’t know what

it is but the school seems to be a

great place to learn leadership.

Then I got pregnant with my

first daughter, so I spent eight

years out of the workforce until

my girls were school age. Then I

taught at Villa Maria.

Did you ever teach your own

girls in class? Were they allowed

to call you mum?

Oh, yes, that was hilarious. One

used to call me mum, one used to

call me Christine, and one used

to awkwardly go “you there” she

didn’t know what to say. So they

each navigated it in their own

way. But I taught them classics, so

the three of us share a common

love for classics and art, so that’s

a really special connection. One

now lives in Auckland, one in

New York and one just back from

London, in Melbourne, but we

all talk regularly every week. My

biggest achievement is not being

principal, it’s my girls.

Do you have any advice for

other women going into maledominated

roles?

Well, I do think men underestimate

how challenging it can be

as a female leader or CEO going

into a male-dominated workplace.

They tend to use very male

ways to connect, like discussing

sports or rubbing shoulders in a

rugby game. But I think it’s about

being yourself, building your

competence and expertise, and

building authentic relationships.

So what is the next step

for you? You aren’t leaving

Christchurch?

No, I’ll be in Christchurch at

least for the immediate future.

My husband manages Community

Law Canterbury and he

does some really interesting work

there, and we have a new house

in inner-city so we’re committed

to see the regeneration of the city.

I’m open to whatever comes my

way, and this gives me six months

do some exploration. I would love

to still be engaged in the teaching

world, but equally there may be

opportunities in another field.

I’m passionate about youth justice,

and working with Maori and

Pasifika students. So I’m open to

whatever. I’ve got another career

in me yet.

Bake at 170 deg C for 20

minutes or until brown and very

crisp. Take them out straight

away and leave to cool on a cake

rake to avoid going soggy. You

can keep the bread cases in an

airtight container for a few days

if you are not making the pies

straight away.

Beat the eggs and mix through

the walnuts, cheddar, steamed

broccoli, salt and a good grind

of pepper. Fold in the cottage

cheese. You want to keep blobs of

cottage cheese through the mix.

Place the bread cases back in

to the muffin pans and spoon in

the mixture. Bake in a 180 deg C

oven for 15 minutes or until set

through.

MEYER LEMON ICE CREAM

Ingredients

1 cup Cream

⅓ cup Caster sugar

1 Meyer lemon

Directions

Put all the cream, caster sugar

and the very finely grated zest

and juice of the lemon in a

mixing bowl and whisk until

mixed.

Taste and add more lemon

juice or sugar if needed. Whisk

until the cream thickens but has

not started to stiffen. Be careful

not to over-whip. Pour into 4

small dishes, cover with plastic

wrap and freeze.

SOUTHLAND SWEDE,

ROASTED GARLIC ON

POTATO DISCS

Ingredients

3 Swedes

1 head Garlic

3 Waxy potatoes

1 Tbsp Oil to brush

Directions

Roast the garlic head whole

and squeeze out the soft garlic

puree.

Peel the swedes, chop them

into small pieces and cook them

gently in milk until they are very

tender.

Cut some small waxy potatoes

into discs (leave the skin on),

brush them with oil and space

them out on an oven tray.

Roast them until they are just

soft and nicely golden coloured.

Drain the swedes (keep the

poaching liquid) and puree them

with the roasted garlic.

Add enough of the poaching

liquid to achieve a firm but

smooth puree.

Mound up a generous teaspoon

of the mash on to each

disc, season well with salt and

pepper and top with parsley.

Timing bulb flowering not an exact science

• By Paul Hoek

CAN BULB flowering be timed

for special occasions?

More often than not, this question

is asked in relation to a wedding.

And I can understand why

– growing your own tulips, lilies

or other bulbs would save money

and look fantastic in bouquets or

in the background of photos.

Unfortunately, the timing of

bulbs flowering is heavily reliant

on nature. And, as Cyclones Cook

and Debbie have recently reminded

us, nature and weather can be

fickle and hard to predict.

So, the question of timing flowering

for special occasions is one

that is pretty well impossible for

us to answer accurately.

What I can do, is give you a bit

more information about spring

and summer flowering bulbs to

help you decide whether or not

it’s doable for your particular situation

and region.

Spring flowering bulbs

In a nutshell, spring flowering

bulbs (like tulips, hyacinths and

daffodils) can’t just be planted

later to make them flower later.

Without any artificial chilling,

these bulbs have to be planted in

autumn (makes no difference at

which point in autumn) as they

require all the chilling that comes

Latest Christchurch news at www.

MAJESTIC: Summer bulbs such as gladioli and lilies don’t need cold weather to trigger flowering.

with winter.

Exactly when they flower will

depend on how cold the winter is,

how much rain there is, and how

early or late spring comes.

The only way to make spring

bulbs flower later than normal is

to plant them in pots and hold

them in a chiller, progressively

lowering the temperature from 9

deg C to 0 deg C over a period of

10 weeks.

Then hold them at zero and

take them from the chiller two

to three weeks before you want

them in full flower. This approach

won’t work with unplanted bulbs.

To make potted spring bulbs

flower earlier, you can use the

chilling method above and simply

take them out early rather than

late.

But there’s only a small window

in which you can make them

flower earlier. Tulips can’t be

chilled until late March because

the immature buds inside the

bulbs need to reach a certain

development stage before they’re

ready. And, they need to be chilled

for a minimum of 12 weeks.

So August would be the earliest

you could get tulips to flower –

around three to four weeks ahead

of normal. For potted daffodils

and hyacinths you can start chilling

earlier, in early March, and

have flowers in early July.

You can also get unplanted

bulbs to flower earlier. But instead

of putting them in at 9 deg C, you

can put them straight in at 4 deg

C. Do this in late March and then

plant them out in late May, they’ll

flower at least a month earlier

than normal.

Summer flowering bulbs

Summer flowering bulbs (like

gladioli and lilies) are a little

easier to manipulate into flowering

earlier or later, as they don’t

require a cold period to trigger

their flowering.

To make them flower earlier or

later you can plant them earlier

or later from July right up to

Christmas – but only if you keep

the bulbs in a good condition.

The eventual difference in

flowering time will not be as great

as the variation in planting time

from July to December. This is

because the soil and growing

conditions are cold in July to September,

and bulbs planted at that

.kiwi

Thursday June 1 2017

time will progress much slower

than bulbs planted in October or

November.

Likewise, bulbs planted in December

will flower much quicker

as they are doing all their growing

in warm soil and summer temperatures.

Nevertheless, planting

from July to December will see

a spread of flowering times over

around two to three months.

So, as you can see – forcing

bulbs to flower for a set time or a

special occasion is by no means

an exact science. But if it’s still

something you’re interested in, I

leave you two questions to think

about. Firstly, will it ruin the big

day if the bulbs haven’t flowered

yet, or are already past their best?

And secondly, is it worth the risk?

QUAINT: Fantasy meets reality at Middle Earth.

SNUG: Have an ale at the Green Dragon Inn.

Hobbiton casts you under a spell

• By Mike Yardley

MATAMATA’S lush emerald

pastures and roly-poly hills are

happily home to Hobbiton, the

ultimate cinematic shrine for

set-jetters in New Zealand.

Like a third of all visitors, I have

never watched or read an entire

story or movie, from either trilogy.

But for starry-eyed Tolkien

junkies, a journey here has acquired

the stature of a pilgrimage.

To reach the movie set entails

a short drive by bus across the

Alexander family’s farmland on

a private sealed road, which was

built by the New Zealand Army

to service the convoy of crew production

vehicles and equipment.

Sir Peter Jackson sweet-talked the

then Prime Minister, Helen Clark,

to approve the road’s construction.

Alighting from the bus, the

bright green grass is long and lush

as we trundle down the muddy

track to the first hobbit house,

where ‘the Hobbiton effect” suddenly

washes over me.

Unlike so many movie locations,

Hobbiton casts you under

its spell because it’s exactly the

same as it appears on screen.

It’s all so sweet and tender, with

washing hanging on a line near a

chimney poking out of a grassy

mound.

Baskets are plump with pumpkins,

while flowers and herbs

have been hung up to dry by a

round yellow door. As we walked

down a gravelled path, some

members of my group frothed

with delight, recognising it as the

REALISTIC: Hobbiton is exactly the same as it appears on screen.

spot where Frodo Baggins greeted

Gandalf at the start of The Fellowship

of the Ring. And these tingly

movie moments just kept on

coming, as we strolled around the

44 hobbit houses that are strung

around the hillsides, fizzing with

excitement being photographed

outside Bag End or sitting on the

see-saw beneath The Party Tree,

where Bilbo held his eleventy-first

birthday. I was fully submerged in

the fantasy-meets-reality world of

Middle Earth.

It’s little wonder that 450,000

visitors toured the movie set, last

year alone. Winding our way

around the hills, the panoramic

views reach right across the lake

to the stone bridge, the watermill

and the Green Dragon Inn, which

looked like a life-sized thatched

cottage from my grandmother’s

Lilliput Lane collection.

Sir Peter Jackson’s art director,

Brian Massey, ensured everything

down to the mugs maintained

complete faith with how The

Green Dragon Inn was depicted

onscreen.

A triumph of expert craftsmanship,

it’s a charmingly snug and

toasty timbered environment, and

the crackling open fire was an extra

thrill to warm the cockles, on

a chilly April day. All the brews

are exclusively created by Good

George Brewing, in Frankton.

Maybe it was the ale, but as I

re-boarded the bus to depart, I

felt like I was stepping out of a

movie. It really doesn’t matter

whether you’re a film fanatic or

not.

The movie set sits on 4.8ha of

land and my charming guide,

Kate, shared a constant flow of

fascinating bite-sized nuggets

about Hobbiton.

An over-riding theme is the

meticulous attention to detail

that Jackson demanded. All of the

farm’s livestock had to be removed

when shooting took place,

because they didn’t look English

enough. Suffolk sheep, notable for

their black faces and legs, were

hauled up from the South Island

during shooting.

Real apple and pear trees

were stripped of their and

replaced with plastic leaves and

plums, even though they only

featured for three seconds in the

movie.

A fake oak tree, created from

silicon, was dressed with 200,000

fake leaves. Jackson didn’t like

the colour of the leaves, so they

were all re-painted by hand, even

though the tree was only in shot

for 10 seconds.

Kate also revealed that moss

and lichen was liberally deployed

to give the movie-set’s fences a

weathered, old look. They created

fake moss and lichen by blending

woodchips, yoghurt and paint

together.

As they were during filming,

the vegetable patches are still

filled with super-sized plants so as

the hobbits would look smaller.

Technically, it is still an “active

set,” and a team from Weta

visit every six months to give it a

touch up.

The hanging clothes were deliberately

made to hang on the line

for up to two years, before being

replaced.

A full-time gardening team

work daily on maintaining the

picturesque appearance of the

trees, flowers and lawn.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

The degree that offers so

many career opportunities

Experience plus

degree gets Ara

graduate key role

at Kraft Heinz

Ara Institute of Canterbury graduate

Danielle Street has secured her dream job

at Kraft Heinz Company, just a year after

graduating with a Bachelor of Applied

Management in Sales and Marketing.

Danielle thought it would take her years

to become a Territory Manager, but she

believes her unique experience and degree

made her stand out above the rest.

“A degree is the thing that puts you on

top. It shows you’ve got the latest knowledge

and with that you’ll be able to adapt quickly

to changes and new challenges,” she says.

Working with well-known global brands

like Wattie’s has always been the goal for

Danielle. She knew she needed relevant

experience to get a foot in the door and

she got started by setting up her own snow

cone business while still at high school.

“Not only did this give me experience on

my CV that not many people my age have,

it also helped me understand what I wanted

to study.”

The range of subjects covered by the

Ara Bachelor of Applied Management

was a drawcard for Danielle. She was able

to pursue her passion for marketing and

event management, plus explore essential

foundation subjects like economics. She

says that everything she’s learned has been

hugely relevant in her new role.

“My marketing knowledge is something I

use everyday – particularly price, product,

promotion and placement – and my

understanding of economics means I can

use big-picture information like graphs to

inform what I do.”

A key part of Danielle’s degree was a a sixmonth

internship, which she undertook at

Frucor to gain an insight into the world

of fast-moving consumer goods. She says

this gave her a distinct advantage when

applying for her new role in the industry.

Danielle also believes that her extracurricular

experience on the Student

Events Team at Ara helped her prepare for

her role, by exposing her to working on

projects with different teams and people

from different backgrounds.

“Being a Territory Manager is mostly

about relationship building. I need to be able

to manage lots of different relationships.”

Her advice to other young people

wanting to enter the industry is to take

advantage of any practical opportunities to

get experience and to get a relevant degree.

The Bachelor of Applied Science in

Physical Activity and Health Promotion

offers students the chance to change lives.

Recent graduate Abby Wilson is working

as a physical health advisor for Sport

Canterbury, supporting patients with a

range of conditions to become more active

to benefit their health and wellbeing.

She says that connecting with people in

the community and seeing them create

change in their lives is very fulfilling.

“It’s great when you meet people who

want to change and you know that you

have the ability to help them transform

their approach to being active. Seeing them

become independently active and continue

with a healthier lifestyle is amazing.”

During her degree, Abby completed

placements with Falls Prevention and

the Canterbury District

Health Board. She says

that the opportunity

to work in the local

community and build

networks was invaluable.

The placements are the

best part of the degree.

You spend about 130

hours working in the

second and third years

and you definitely feel

ready to go out and get

a job when you finish. I

use the majority of what

I learned in my degree

every single day.”

In their first year,

The Star

students explore foundation topics and

then focus on the physical activity and

health promotion specialisation for the

remainder of their study. This prepares

graduates to enter a wide range of roles in

the sports, health and wellness sectors.

Abby says that the degree has given her

options. She’s already experienced the

diversity the industry has to offer, including

working in Abu Dhabi immediately after

graduating.

The degree offers so many career

opportunities, which means you get to go

out and do different things throughout

your career.”

The Bachelor of Applied Science

(Physical Activity and Health Promotion)

is a three year, full time programme. Part

time options are also available.

MX-5 an example of

advanced engineering

• By Ross Kiddie

“SAVE UP your money,’’

was the advice from

Masaya Kodama, CX-5

project manager, Mazda

Motor Corporation, Japan.

I had asked Mr Kodama

if a new Mazda RX was

likely given the concept

drawings of a new sports

car have been on show.

Mr Kodama said rotary

engine development was

ongoing, and from those

comments I would say a

new RX is inevitable.

I’ve long considered

Mazda’s development of its

rotary engine to be one of

the company’s finest engineering

achievements.

Although I’ve never had

the good fortune to own a

rotary, my son has a RX7

turbo and occasionally I get

to experience the feel and

performance of that amazing

sport coupe.

As history has served to

prove, Mazda has advanced

engineering techniques

right through its passenger

vehicle line-up, and just

recently one of its other

sport models, the MX-5,

was launched in a new

variation – that with a folding

convertible roof – made

of metal.

Of course, the soft-top

MX-5, is still available

in four variants, and the

concept of a folding metal

roof isn’t new; targa tops,

as they have become commonly

known, have been

around for many decades.

However, the point I’m

making is that the mechanism

which transforms

this popular sports car is

another example of Mazda’s

engineering prowess. The

13sec electric operation

is just sheer genius, it can

also be open and closed

at speeds of up to 10km/h

and, for interest’s sake, boot

space remains the same for

all models.

The concept for which

we like MX-5 hasn’t been

compromised, it is still the

cheeky, two-seater which

thrills with its chassis balance

and associated handling

prowess.

Whereas the soft-top is

available in both 1.5-litre

and 2-litre variants, the

hard-top RF (retractable

fastback) is a 2-litre car

only, but there’s also a

choice of specification and

gearbox. The GSX sits at

$48,495, a Limited variant

adds $3000 and $4500

(auto), while the test car

was a special launch edition

model with automatic

MAZDA MX-5 RFS: Convertible hardtop.

transmission, it tops the

range at $54,995.

Before you jump to the

conclusion that the hardtop

needs the 2-litre engine

because of the metal structure’s

increase in weight,

bear in mind that that

adds just 47kg into the car

and performance is far

from compromised. The

acceleration times between

the two models are much

the same – 0-100km/h in

6.6sec and 7.2sec respectively.

• Price – Mazda MX-5

RFS, $54,995

• Dimensions –

Length, 3915mm;

width, 1735mm;

height, 1235mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, rearwheel-drive,

1998cc,

118kW, 200Nm, sixspeed

manual

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.4sec

• Fuel usage –

7l/100km

Even though the 1998cc,

twin-camshaft unit is

built to Mazda’s SkyActive

efficiency and emissionfriendly

parameters, it is

still a high performing

engine with its 118kW and

200Nm ratings.

It works freely through

the six-speed automatic

thanks to low early gearing

and a broad top end gear to

promote highway economy.

Mazda claims a sevenlitre

per 100km (40mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

average, which sat well

with the 8l/100km (35mpg)

figure showing on the test

car’s trip computer when I

took it back to the dealership.

I’ve often been a bit critical

of the MX-5 and the

sound that is generated

within the cockpit, history

has it that it has always

been a bit noisy. I guess

performance car buyers

like that and they may be

disappointed in the hardtop

as it is far quieter and

far more to my liking; there

is an angry engine sound

when it’s working hard, but

under normal conditions

the hard-top promotes a

quiet in-cabin environment

and I relate to that.

Not only is the engine

a delight in terms of flexibility

and honesty, the

MX-5’s greatest virtue is

that of its feel-good factor.

The suspension and chassis

engineering is a marvel.

Of course, drive is sent to

the rear wheels and that

promotes a pure handling

sensation, add in the fully

involving feel from the

steering wheel and the

compliance within the

spring and damper rates

and you have a true sports

car, one which delivers the

fun factor along with the

ability to conquer the most

challenging of corners.

Take into account, too,

that the tyres aren’t huge

(205/45 x 17in), there isn’t

a lot of load put on them,

and with a height of just

1235mm there is little

gravitational force working

against the convertible in a

quick corner, it handles flat

and controlled.

There’s some flexibility

built into the traction control

system, you can make

it a little tail-happy before

the electronic devices

counteract oversteer, but

that doesn’t interrupt the

fun. The MX-5 in this form

has lost none of its playful

character and that is why

it has been such a popular

car, it has been built with

character in mind and it

doesn’t disappoint.

For someone whose old

joints don’t work quite as

well as they once did, I

didn’t find entry and exit

into the test car onerous, in

fact I was finding excuses

to get in the vehicle and go

for a drive.

There’s a raft of amazing

product coming out of the

Mazda factories these days,

it’s no surprise then that

the MX-5 in this form is so

desirable. I’m so envious of

those who get to own one.

• By Gordon Findlater

GARY LAWSON and Tayla Bruce

took out Bowls Canterbury’s top

awards on Saturday night.

of the year.

There have

highlights for

Lawson over

the past 12

months, including

winning

the men’s pairs

at the Bowls

Tayla Bruce

New Zealand

national championships

in

New Plymouth

in January. The

victory was

Lawson’s 11th

national title,

making him the

most successful

Kiwi bowlers of

all time.

“To win my

11th New Zealand

title was something I’ve been

trying to do for a while,” he said.

Lawson, who plays for the

Sumner club, then went on to

win the national inter-centre title

with the Canterbury men’s team,

which he described as the icing on

the cake.

The Canterbury men’s intercentre

team won the team of the

year award.

The spirit the boys had was

the winner there. The seven other

guys that I played with made it a

thrill to be part of the Canterbury

team,” said Lawson.

Canterbury men’s team coach

Darryl Hawker praised Lawson.

“He was a great team member

and mentor to not only the senior

men’s teams this year, but also

to the development men’s and

women’s teams,” said Hawker.

Lawson was part of the Sumner

team which won the national

sevens title.

Bruce from the Burnside club

is currently competing at the

Broadbeach Bowls Club, Gold

Coast, with the New Zealand

squad.

Alex Wilkinson, 15, also of

Burnside, won the most improved

and most consistent trophies at

the Bowls Canterbury awards.

QUINN CLINTON will follow

in the footsteps of two of

Australasia’s best guards when

he joins St Mary’s College of

California next year.

Australian NBA champions

Matthew Dellavedova and Patty

Mills both played college basketball

at SMC. The college has now

had at least one Australian in

their team each year since 2001.

The Australian contingent

haven’t been there to make up

the numbers. Dellavedova is

SMC’s all-time leader in scoring,

assists, games played, free throw

percentage, and three-point

shots made.

Clinton, who is seen as one

of the best young shooters and

passers to ever come out of New

Zealand, will soon add some

Kiwi flavour to the team.

“I think there’s currently

about half a dozen Aussies there.

They’ve had guys that play quite

a similar game to me who have

had a lot of success at college

and have gone on to bigger

things. That’s something that

stood out to me” said Clinton.

Clinton is currently taking a

Young driver hopes to break rally drought

• By Gordon Findlater

ARI PETTIGREW is hoping

to turn his luck around at this

weekend’s Canterbury Rally

after a series of misfortunes in

Otago and Whangarei.

Pettigrew, 18, has failed to finish

in the opening two rounds

of the New Zealand Rally

Championship but is hopeful of

beginning his push in the twowheel-drive

championship at

home this weekend.

“It hasn’t been the start to the

first national championship we

would have liked. We’re hopeful

of a good result this weekend

and knowing parts of the roads

in the forest will certainly help,”

said Pettigrew.

At the opening round of the

championship in Otago, he

showed the kind of pace that

has seen him earn a reputation

as New Zealand’s next big thing

in the sport. Over two of the

stages, Pettigrew and co-driver

David Calder went faster than

the current NZRC 2WD record

in their Ford Fiesta, and won

their class on three stages before

retiring with a blown engine on

stage four.

He didn’t have better luck in

the second round of the championship

in Whangarei, running

into power steering issues.

Pettigrew broke onto the

scene last year when he finished

fourth overall in just his second

ever event at the Catlins Coast

on his game full-time with former

Tall Blacks and Canterbury

Rams coach Mark Dickel.

This year, he has made the

towards the future. Hayden

on joining the team this year

with Clinton. However, he

envisioned bringing a new style

The mystery of Tui Lolohea’s exit from the Warriors

• By Michael Burgess

THE REASONS behind Tui

Lolohea’s fall from grace at the

Warriors this season will remain

a mystery.

Lolohea, who was granted a

release from the club last week,

began this year as one of the

club’s first choice wings.

He started the first two

matches on the flank, then had

games at fullback and fiveeighth,

deputising for Roger

Tuivasa-Sheck and Kieran Foran.

At that point he slid down

the pecking order, behind Blake

Ayshford and rookie Charnze

Nicoll-Klokstad among the

outside backs.

However, when asked by the

NZ Herald, Warriors coach

Stephen Kearney wouldn’t

be drawn on the specifics of

Lolohea’s demise.

“It’s a matter for myself and

Tui. What I will say is that we

gave him the opportunity. I saw

Latest Christchurch news at www.

.kiwi

him as a specialist right winger,

he had that opportunity and

as sometimes things happen, it

didn’t quite work out for him.

The opportunity for him now is

with the Tigers and, personally

I do wish him all the best,” said

Kearney.

However, Kearney admitted

the two had disagreed over

Lolohea’s best position and

where his future lay.

“I saw him as a specialist

winger to begin with and Tui

saw himself more as a half or

fullback,” said Kearney.

The last thing I want to

do is stop a young man from

trying to achieve his potential,

so I thought it was fair to both

parties to let him go and

chase the position he wants to

play.”

Lolohea will make his Tigers

debut on Saturday against St

George.

tomorrow night after missing

the last two games with a calf

injury.

Kata has had a mixed season

so far – with only one try from

nine games – but deserves

another opportunity given his

performances over the past two

years.

Kata’s inclusion results in

David Fusitu’a moving back to

the right wing, replacing Nicoll-

Klokstad.

The Crusaders meet the

Highlanders at AMI Stadium at

2.35pm, while the Chiefs host

the Waratahs in Hamilton at

5.05pm.

The New Zealand derby will

probably attract the most attention,

according to the NZ Herald,

given the Crusaders have won all

of their 13 matches this season,

while the Highlanders are on a

nine-match streak.

The Crusaders, with two

and 11 points up on the Hurricanes

(who have a game in

hand), are a good chance to retain

top spot in the New Zealand

conference, but will be desperate

to beat the Johannesburg-based

to qualify for a home final.

The Highlanders will be keen

The Crusaders, having taken

pride in celebrating their fourth

win in a different country in four

weeks following victories over

the Bulls in Pretoria, Hurricanes

in Christchurch, Chiefs in Suva

and Rebels in Melbourne, also

took pleasure in beating the winning

streak of 12 the franchise

Significantly, coaches Scott

touched on by current assistant

something that we have been

aware of; trying to create our

own history, whilst also recognising

that in the past. Now we

Home

& Property

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s

going to auction, preparation is

everything. A successful bid means

you are immediately committed to buy

the property; you cannot seek legal

advice, arrange finance or even get the

property valued or inspected when the

auction is over.

That means you need to do all your

due diligence in advance of auction

day. Before the auction (usually after

you’ve viewed the property), the real

estate agent working for the seller

should provide you with a copy of the

terms and Contract of Sale, which sets

out what chattels will be included with

the property. This document will also

tell you the amount of the deposit to

be paid by the successful bidder, and

when the balance of the payment must

be made. These documents should be

checked by your lawyer.

You should consider having

the property checked (preferably

by a qualified inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in accordance

with the New Zealand Property

Inspection Standards and obtain

an up-to-date Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) from the local

council. It’s a good idea to get a

valuation of the property, especially

as you are likely to require one if you

need a loan. Some websites provide free

estimated market values that may be

useful.

There’s a lot to take in at an auction

and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you

can, go along to one as an observer to

see how the process works before you

actually want to buy. Remember that

the auctioneer is working for the seller

and they want to get the highest price

possible for the property.

At an auction, the auctioneer will

read the terms and conditions of the

sale aloud and announce if a reserve

price has been set. They must also state

whether the seller has reserved the

right to bid during the auction. This is

called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only

allowed under strict circumstances,

such as when the property being

auctioned has a reserve price; when the

NEW LISTINGS

every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

For more information

and bookings, contact

Mike Fulham

M: 021 300 567

E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

reserve price has not yet been met; and

the auctioneer has made it clear that the

bid being made is a vendor bid. They

must do this by saying, ‘this is a vendor

bid’ rather than using any jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor

bids as a way to start off the bidding,

or to move the bidding towards the

reserve price. Vendor bids can be made

by the auctioneer, or another person

working on behalf of the seller, such as

a real estate agent. An auctioneer can

also use a pre-auction offer to start the

bidding.

The auction continues until there is

only one bidder left. At that stage, if the

reserve price is reached or beaten, the

highest bidder will be the successful

buyer. If the reserve price isn’t reached,

the seller can tell the auctioneer to

stop the auction without selling the

property.

If the auction is stopped without a

sale, the highest bidder may have the

opportunity to negotiate with the seller

(via their agent) after the auction. If

this happens, the terms and conditions

of the auction no longer apply and you

can negotiate new ones.

buying property, check out www.

Applicant:

Address for service:

Lyttelton Port Company Limited

C/- Jared Pettersson, Lyttelton Port Company Limited,

Private bag 501, Lyttelton 8841; or email: Jared.Pettersson@lpc.co.nz

Environment Canterbury has received an application from Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) for resource

consents in respect of its proposed Te Awaparahi Bay Reclamation Project (Project).

The Project involves the proposed construction of a reclamation and a piled wharf totalling approximately 24

hectares in size. The Project is to be undertaken in Te Awaparahi Bay, Lyttelton Harbour/Whakaraupō.

LPC proposes to undertake the Project in two stages:

• Stage 1 will involve the construction of approximately 5 hectares of reclamation via end tipping; and

• Stage 2 will involve the construction of approximately 16 hectares of reclamation, by:

– creating a perimeter bund around the remaining area to be reclaimed; and

– the bulk filling of the area behind the bund.

A piled wharf will be constructed in stages along the southern edge of the proposed reclamation footprint.

Part of Cashin Quay breakwater will also be removed, during either Stage 1 or Stage 2 of the

reclamation construction.

The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in relation to the proposed Project:

1. CRC175507 – Coastal permit to reclaim seabed and construct a wharf, and associated disturbance of the

seabed, and deposition onto or into the seabed in the Coastal Marine Area.

2. CRC176030 – Coastal permit to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water) into water in the

Coastal Marine Area associated with construction of the reclamation and wharf described in CRC175507.

3. CRC175508 – Coastal permit to discharge any water or any contaminants into water or into or onto land,

and associated deposition in the Coastal Marine Area.

4. CRC175509 – Coastal permit to discharge stormwater (water and contaminants) into water, or onto or

into land, and associated deposition in the Coastal Marine Area.

5. CRC175510 – Discharge permit and a coastal permit to discharge dust into air from the site.

A diagram outlining the location of the Project, the site boundary and details of its approximate staging is

included as Figure 1.

Rally & March to stop the sale

of Christchurch state houses

Speakers include:

Naenae Higgs

State House Tenant

Bishop Victoria

Mathews Anglican Church

Megan Woods Labour MP

Eugenie Sage Green MP

Paul Watson First Union

Join the fightback


DEFEND

and

PROTECT

STATE

HOUSING


Christchurch will not stand

idly by while National asset

strips the city of state houses.

Since the 1930s Christchurch families have

been helped by state houses built by our

parents, grandparents. But this year, in the

middle of a housing crisis, the National

government is trying to sell 2,500 of our state

houses.

They say state house tenants can be looked

after by social housing providers. However

only the government has the resources and

capacity to build the huge number of homes

desperately needed by low-income families.

If they have their way our children and

grandchildren who need state housing in the

future won’t be able to get it.

More people and families will be left to

live in cars, under bridges or doubled up in

small homes.

Come on

Christchurch!

Let’s join

together

and stop

this social

vandalism!


Christchurch

desperately

needs...

• More state houses

• More council houses

• Rent controls

• Long-term tenure in

rental housing

• A compulsory warrant

of fitness for all rental

housing

Housing Action Canterbury

is a group of individuals

and organisations fighting

for these goals.

What can you do to support the

fight back against government

attacks on state housing?
