TRIBUTE: Christchurch artist Peter Majendie sits in one of the 185 white chairs.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE ARTIST behind the 185

Empty Chairs tribute is working

to make it permanent – and

creators of The Lord of the Rings

movies may help to make it

happen.

Artist Peter Majendie is set

to speak at a city council committee

on Monday, asking for

a permanent site for the chairs

which remember the 185 people

who died in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Mr Majendie has conducted

an online survey and Latimer

Square or the Botanic Gardens

are the most popular options.

The chairs are currently sited

on the corner of Madras and

Cashel Sts.

Mr Majendie looked at

placing them on the CTV site,

but Crown company Otakaro

Ltd, which owns the site,

turned down the proposal in

February.

If the city council approves a

site, he plans to cast the chairs

in metal to make the installation

permanent.

Weta Workshop, which built

props and sets used in the Lord

of the Rings trilogy, is one of the

companies Mr Majendie has

approached about doing the

metal-casting work.

He said it would cost about

$500,000 to set up the permanent

installation, which

landscaping, metal-casting

and white powder-coating the

chairs, and installing a ground

lighting installation shaped like

cracks underneath it.

Armed

robber

should

never be

let out

• By Andrew King

SERIAL ARMED robber

Douglas Anderson Roake should

never be let free.

That is the view of the manager

of The Brickworks bar in

Cashmere which was robbed

twice in March by the 23-yearold.

He fired shots during the

second robbery.

Said the manager, who

declined to be identified: “I don’t

think he should ever get out.

What he has done is completely

life-changing,”

“If he could do what he did

to those young ladies out in

Rolleston and all of us, what is to

stop him doing it all over again.

To pull a trigger, especially on

another person is a whole other

level.”

Roake was captured by police

after he shot two women in

Rolleston during a home invasion

in April, one was seriously

injured. He then drove south to

Ashburton and robbed a hotel

later that night.

He was apprehended at the

Rakaia Huts the following

morning.

Roake pleaded guilty on

Monday to the robbery of six

hotels, two charges of wounding

with intent to cause grievous

bodily harm, and two charges of

presenting a firearm.

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News..................................3-20

IF YOU do the crime, you’ve

got to do the time.

And the manager of The

Brickworks bar in Cashmere

says serial armed robber

Doug Roake should do a lot

of time.

On pages 1 and 6-7, the

manager and a bartender

who were held up – not once

but twice by Roake – speak

exclusively to reporter Andrew

King.

Very few people will ever

have to face a loaded firearm,

but these two women have

experienced the terror twice.

It’s a fear all hospitality

staff have. During Roake’s

reign of terror across Canterbury,

hotels and bars were on

alert fearing if they would

be next.

He had no issue about discharging

his firearm – and

the attack on two women in

Rolleston, which ultimately

led to his undoing, was testimony

of that.

So when the manager

of The Brickworks says he

should stay in jail for a very

long time, she has a point.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw Kemp’s Deed signed by Ngai

Tahu on June 12, 1848. It gave the New Zealand Company

control of land from Kaiapoi to Otago. On June 13, 1909,

Cafe Continental Hotel at Sumner was destroyed by fire.

On June 14, 1923, New Zealand’s permanent air force was

established at Sockburn with the Government taking over

the Canterbury Aviation Company. Included in the takeover

was Sockburn Aerodrome, which was renamed Wigram a

few days later. On June 14, 1977, the worst ever daytime

smog level was recorded – 750 mcg per cu m. On June 15,

1842, William Deans left Wellington to look for suitable

farmland in the South Island. On June 16, 1932, the Robert

McDougall Art Gallery was opened. It was a gift of R. E.

Quake buildings inquiry: No charges

• By Gabrielle Stuart

POLICE WILL not lay

any charges in relation to

the earthquake death at St

Christopher’s Book Market on

Riccarton Rd.

Henry Ross Bush, 75, died

when the facade collapsed on his

parked car during the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Survey ‘dictatorial style’

• By Bridget Rutherford

HIGH PROFILE property

developer Ernest Duval has

likened a survey commissioned

by the Anglican Church on the

future of the Christ Church

Cathedral to a method world

dictators would use.

Mr Duval,

who heads City

Owners Rebuild

Entity, wrote a

submission saying

the survey

was something

Ernest Duval

that would

happen under

Russian President

Vladimir Putin, Syrian

President Bashar al-Assad, or

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.

The survey, done by company

Research First, was released on

Tuesday and said 58 per cent

wanted the Cathedral reinstated.

In his submission, Mr Duval,

who wants the Cathedral restored,

said it was biased.

“Good to know there are

outfits like yours in the Market

place and will pass your contact

details to Messrs putin Assad

Kim il Jun [sic],” he wrote.

He said the comments were

directed at the pollsters.

“That’s the sort of thing they

would do in those countries

to get a result to support their

political point of view.

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney said police are also

unlikely to pursue charges into

the death of apprentice tattooist

Matt McEachen who died trying

to escape falling rubble at the

Southern Ink tattoo parlour on

Colombo St.

Police said yesterday they are

awaiting final reports into their

investigation into the collapse

CRITICISM: The Anglican Church-commissioned survey on

the future of the Christ Church Cathedral has been called

biased.

“We live in an open and fair

and transparent democracy, we

don’t live in a place where you

have to manipulate questions to

get a desired result.”

But the Church Property

Trustees, along with Research

First director Carl Davidson,

said on Tuesday the survey was

not biased.

“We went to Research First

because we knew they would

help us form the questions that

didn’t actually bias the results

of the CTV Building and the

Ballantynes car park building

on Lichfield St.

Linda Arnold, 57, was killed

when a concrete panel fell

from the Ballantynes car park

building, and 115 lives were lost

in the CTV collapse.

Detective Inspector Sweeney

said police had assessed

the Southern Ink case for

in any particular way,” Church

Property trustee Bruce Deam

said.

The survey first asked the 380

random participants whether

they preferred reinstatement, a

rebuild or if they did not mind.

Then, when participants

were told the “consequences,”

such as the funding gap for

reinstatement, the likelihood of

an impact on rates, and the time

frame, 23 per cent changed their

minds.

criminal charges and engaged

several experts to examine the

report.

They do not believe that

charges should be laid in this

case,” he said.

Matt’s father Bruce McEachen

said he had been waiting 2250

days to hear the result of the

investigation, and he was

absolutely gutted.

DICTATORS: Russian

President Vladimir Putin,

Syrian President Bashar

al-Assad, and North Korea’s

Kim Jong-un.

In Brief

RAVENSDOWN CLEARED

A Worksafe investigation into the

death of a contractor at Ravensdown

on Main South Rd has been

concluded. Worksafe have said it

will be taking no action against

the fertiliser company after the

death of 73-year-old Keith Edward

Hillery. Mr Hillery suffered serious

burns from an electric shock

on June 16, 2016. He was airlifted

to the National Burns Centre at

Middlemore Hospital in Auckland,

where he later died. Five others

were taken to hospital for smoke

inhalation but were uninjured.

BURGLARY CHARGES

A man arrested for a number of

burglaries in north-west suburbs

has had further charges added.

Robert William Northe, 30, now

faces eight charges of burglary,

possession of instruments for

burglary and possession of

cannabis. He will appear via videolink

from Christchurch Men’s

Prison on June 22. Eighty-three

houses were burgled in Ilam,

Bryndwr and Strowan over a 10-

week period. Detective Sergeant

Ross Tarawhiti said more charges

for Northe were likely.

The women fundraising to buy

recliner chairs for the Christchurch

Hospital children’s ward have

nearly reached their target.

Joanna Triplow and Renee Jones

began fundraising to buy 12

hospital-standard recliners and

His reign of terror was carried

out over two months, instilling

fear throughout the hospitality

Police mounted a special taskforce

to catch him.

Said the manager: “There is

He has been remanded in custody

THE COST of maintaining

Addington’s AMI Stadium has

jumped by more than $700,000

in the past year, renewing calls

for a replacement facility.

City council figures show

the maintenance costs for the

temporary facility were $998,532

in 2016.

That jumped from $153,259

the year before.

Christchurch

Stadium Trust

chief executive

Tim Shannahan

said the

2016 costs were

higher because

Jamie Gough

it included the

replacement of

the floorboard

decks in the three main stands.

The original decks installed

in 2012 were identified at that

time as having a life of five years

before replacement would be

necessary.”

In March the city council

granted building consent for $1

million of work to prolong the

stadium’s lifespan to 2022. The

replacement floorboard decks

were part of that work.

In 2012, the stadium’s maintenance

costs were $102,576,

followed by $95,072 in 2013, and

$67,367 in 2014.

Mr Shannahan said the figures

included annual, scheduled

and reactive maintenance.

AMI Stadium opened in 2012

as a replacement for earthquakedamaged

Lancaster Park.

A multi-purpose arena is part

of the central city blueprint to

replace Lancaster Park to be

funded by the Crown and city

council.

The Crown has already spent

about $40 million acquiring

land for it in the blocks between

Hereford, Tuam, Madras, and

Barbadoes Sts.

A business case for it was put

on hold last year until the city

council stated clear support for it.

Now that Lancaster Park will

be demolished, a pre-feasibility

study for the replacement facility

is under way.

City councillor Jamie Gough

said the multi-purpose arena

needed to be built as soon as

practically possible because

AMI Stadium’s costs were “skyrocketing”.

“It’s been put together with

Blu-Tak and goodwill. We’ve

had some incredible events

but we need to be honest with

ourselves, we’ve got these events

because we’re a charity case. We

He said originally the replacement

facility was meant to have

been built by now, ready to host

a Lions match.

There was “every possibility”

the construction of the new

facility would be sped up as a

result of the submissions on the

Annual Plan, he said.

In May, Crusaders chief executive

city council to build a modern,

Robbed twice: Manager, staff

Armed robber Douglas

Anderson Roake pleaded

guilty this week to a

string of violent hold-ups

and a double shooting

in Canterbury. Two of his

victims speak exclusively

to Andrew King

“F**k I can’t believe this is

happening again.”

That was the first thing that

came into the mind of a The

Brickworks bar staff member

when angry armed robber Douglas

Roake shot his way in late on

Wednesday night, March 29.

Just two weeks earlier the staff

member had been on duty when

Roake had robbed the Centaurus

Rd bar at gunpoint.

This time Roake was very

agitated.

Unable to get in after the doors

were locked as the last patrons

were finishing up their drinks,

he simply shot his way in. The

damage from his shotgun is still

visible.

The robberies have taken their

toll on the bartender and the

manager who have endured both

robberies.

Said the bartender: “I have

HORROR: Douglas Roake (right) twice used a gun to hold up

The Brickworks in Centaurus Rd.

suffered panic attacks, insomnia,

sleep paralysis since the robberies,

but that is getting better

now.”

“You don’t want to relive it but

you do every morning when we

walk in the door.”

“I’m still scared to enter the

toilet [in the bar] because I am

unsure who could be behind the

door.”

Neither the bartender or

manager will be identified. It is

the first time they have spoken

publicly, about the ordeal every

hospitality worker dreads.

When Roake could not get in

he violently tried to open the

door.

The bartender was drying

glasses behind the bar. She

looked up and saw a man

hunched over with a gun pointed

through the glass at her. The

manager was stacking chairs on

tables.

“I was in disbelief that it was

happening again. I just went into

shock,” the manager said.

The bartender crouched down

and retreated to the kitchen to

warn other staff they were being

robbed again.

The manager went to the back

of the restaurant and phoned

111. She then heard the shot and

quickly said into the phone: “If

anyone can hear me, please help

us.”

Kitchen staff hearing the shot

hid in the chiller. The bartender

refused.

“I don’t do well in enclosed

places and didn’t want to be in

there if he opened it and fired the

gun inside,” she said.

Roake entered through the hole

he had blown in the door and

demanded: “Come out with your

hands up.” His voice was frantic.

The bartender appeared from

the kitchen hands up. The

kitchen staff stayed in the chiller.

She and another bartender

were ordered on the ground, and

the manager was ordered to fill a

bag with money.

The bartender knew it was the

same robber from the previous

hold-up. His voice gave him

away.

“OH I LOVE IT.

IT’S ALL

SO NEW.”

“I have the security, the companionship

and everything I need.”

Jill made the move to a villa in her Summerset

retirement village, after the passing of her

husband. “We had discussed it in the past

and thought it would be the best thing for me,

for many reasons,” she says.

Apart from tending to her lovely garden, she

keeps a busy daily schedule.

tell of gunman’s terror

“It was a surreal experience

lying on the floor while there is a

gunman in the building wanting

money,” she said.

Roake asked if there was a

back way to leave.

“No, everything is bolted shut,”

the bartender said.

Roake was agitated and very

aggressive as he pointed the gun

in a threatening manner telling

them they “were doing well, I

don’t want to hurt you, but if you

move I will.”

He then demanded money

from the pokies, as he had during

the first robbery. He was

told it would take longer this

time, as they had not cleared the

machines.

He ordered the manager and

bartender into the pokie room

for more cash before telling the

bartender: “You come with me”.

Panic filled. She thought she

would be taken as a hostage. She

decided she wouldn’t go without

a fight. But all Roake wanted was

for her to zip up his loot bag. She

fumbled which made him angry.

He yelled at her to hurry up.

Roake told her to lie back

down and he left through the

hole in the front door. He walked

a short distance along Centaurus

Rd, but returned to pick up the

spent cartridge by the door.

The manager says Roake was

in the bar for at least 10min.

When police arrived they

ordered everyone out of the bar

at gunpoint, something that was

just as traumatic as the robbery

itself, she said.

The manager says the robberies

have affected her.

“Sometimes, I don’t want to

be here, but I have too. You can’t

run away in life, you have to

confront the demons.”

In the first robbery on March

14, Roake again struck at closing

time. Staff waiting outside for a

lift home were marched into the

bar at gunpoint.

They were ordered onto the

ground and the manger told to

hand over the money. He made

everyone get on the ground

while he demanded money from

the manager.

“You’re doing well ma’am,”

Roake said as she complied with

his orders.

“When it happened I just

turned into a zombie. I couldn’t

tell you what was going through

my mind,” the manager said.

She will always be puzzled why

Roake targeted the bar, not once

but twice.

She and the bartender went to

court to hear Roake.

“We went to court to hear his

voice to put our minds at ease

that it was him and that the guy

was not still out there,” the manager

Sexual assaults highest in Chch

.kiwi

CHRISTCHURCH had the

highest number of sexual assault

cases in the country, police

figures show.

From July 2014 to December

2016, Christchurch had 10,417

cases of victimisation complaints

for acts intended to cause injury.

Nationally, there were 118,732.

Wellington had 4312 cases,

Hamilton with 6063, and Counties-Manukau

West with 5886.

Acting Assistant Commissioner

Sam Hoyle said Christchurch

Metro was ranked top in New

Zealand for sexual assault cases

from mid-2014 to the end of last

year.

Many of the same factors associated

with assaults around the

country were also found in aggravated

sexual assault incidents.

“Central Christchurch, as we

know, is sort of reopening and

reinvigorating and nightlife is

coming back. It hasn’t featured

amongst the data much at all

until the last year or two [due

to the earthquake recovery],”

Acting Assistant Commissioner

Hoyle said.

These types of sexual assaults

[tend to result from] big groups

of people dispersing from clubs

and pubs in the early hours of

the morning. Generally, these

sexual assaults are not committed

by strangers.”

He said stranger attacks were

still incredibly rare.

In spite of a high number

of hotels and backpackers in

downtown areas, Acting Assistant

Commissioner Hoyle said

there was no evidence to suggest

that tourists were sexual assault

targets.

Historically, he said data suggests

the vast majority of victims

are locals making their way

home through a more dangerous

part of town.

Police said one reason many

sexual assaults are recorded in

downtown Christchurch is because

many crimes are reported

at the Central Police Station, due

to police being unable to determine

an exact location.

Acting Assistant Commissioner

Hoyle said the national stats

were not a surprise and there was

a “strain” on police resources to

help keep the peace.

“If you look at our biggest

CBDs, they all feature around

those common assaults, which

doesn’t surprise me at all.

“Where we have those strong

night-time economies, where

we have big groups of people

all arriving in town at the same

time, often having pre-loaded

before they arrive, and then they

all leave at about the same time

we get people bumping into each

other and that’s where we get the

assaults.

“At four o’clock on a Sunday

morning, there’s not much

around in terms of capable

guardianship, there’s some police

officers, some security, taxi

operators – there’s not that much

else out there in terms of capable

guardians.”

He said often assaults involved

“predominately younger people

[who were] heavily intoxicated.”

He said police “resource-up”

for every Thursday, Friday and

Saturday night, and large events,

to help combat the carnage.

“It does put a strain on, it’s

a busy period for police most

weekends, it’s a busy period

for ambulance staff, it’s a busy

period of ED (emergency department)

staff for all those same

reasons.”

Police statistics also show more

than a third of all offences are

committed by an offender who

has been drinking.

Acting Assistant Commissioner

Hoyle said Wellington’s

inner-city was a hotbed for

violent offences on a Friday or

Saturday night. – NZ Herald

Councillors frustrated

The Star

Call for rebuild

boss to meet

with city hall

• By Bridget Rutherford

SOME CITY councillors are

frustrated they still haven’t had

a formal meeting with the new

rebuild boss more

than two months

after she took over

the role.

But Minister

supporting Greater

Nicky

Wagner

Yani

Johanson

Christchurch Regeneration

Nicky Wagner

said she planned

to but had not found

the time.

City councillor

Yani Johanson said

it was “really important”

to meet on

a regular basis. He

had made a request

to do so but was still

waiting.

City councillors never met

with Mrs Wagner’s predecessor

Gerry Brownlee, which had been

frustrating, he said.

“We’re at the start of a new

relationship. We need to be openminded

and give it the benefit

of the doubt to see if there is an

improved way to work together

so it’s better for the community.”

City councillor Aaron Keown

said he was surprised a meeting

had not happened already.

He wanted something like the

2010 system, where there was a

monthly meeting attended by

city councillors, community

board members, health board

members and mayors from

across Canterbury.

Mrs Wagner said she had

planned on attending a city

council meeting, but had not

found the time.

She was open to setting up

monthly meetings.

“I see my job now as moving

the leadership from central

Government and passing it on to

local Government.”

Mrs Wagner said she meets

with Mayor Lianne Dalziel

weekly, and spoke to the relevant

ministers at weekly caucus meetings

about Christchurch issues.

She said she met with Prime

Minister Bill English last week to

keep him updated.

“And Gerry Brownlee, I’m constantly

talking to him because, of

course, he’s got lots of the history

going back.”

City councillor Jamie Gough

said he was keen to meet with

Mrs Wagner when required.

He said the city council should

have met more with Mr Brownlee.

“I think the tension between

local government and the Crown

occurred probably more often

than we would have liked because

there wasn’t that dialogue

there. I don’t know if that was

necessarily anyone’s fault.”

Critical fire victim

an Australian

• By Andrew King

A MAN in a critical condition

after he was pulled from a

burning motel room is believed

to be a roofer from Australia.

Firefighters dragged the man

from a room at the City Central

Motel Apartments, Barbadoes

St, at about 6.50am on Wednesday

after responding to a room

consumed by fire.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Mark Worner would not be

drawn on what had caused the

fire on Wednesday but said it

was “not accidental.”

It is understood the man

had set up a roofing company

in the past nine months after

coming to Christchurch about

18 months ago and was working

predominantly in Queenstown.

He had returned to the city

from Queenstown on Friday

night.

Belt and Road Forum

for Future Cooperation

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

(BRF) which was concluded in May 14-15 outlined the

roadmap for the success of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Twenty-nine foreign heads of state and government

attended the forum.

Other delegates included officials, entrepreneurs, financiers

and media from over 130 countries and regions, which are

home to more than two thirds of the world’s population

and their combined gross domestic product accounts for

90 percent of the world’s total. The second BRF will be held

in China in 2019.

The forum yielded a list of outcomes, which included 76

consensuses comprising more than 270 detailed results in

five key areas, namely policy, infrastructure, trade, financial

and people-to-people connectivity.

It sent a positive signal for all parties to work together

to build a community of shared future, which would be

extremely important for China and the world.

Large Investment Demand

A joint communiqué was issued at the forum, vowing

to work on a long-term, stable and sustainable financing

system, as well as to enhance financial infrastructure

connectivity, by exploring new finance models, platforms

and services. The projects will require innovative financing

mechanisms -- a mix of public and concessional finance

and commercial capital.

Stronger Financial Connectivity

Meanwhile, besides the actual fund injection, future

cooperation would gradually extend from the building of

hardware such as roads and ports to softer sectors such as

management and services. Funding services and financial

support would be one of the service and institutional

improvements that would take more shares in the next

round of Belt and Road construction.

Nine Chinese-funded banks have set up 62 direct branches

and representative offices in 26 countries along the Belt

and Road as of the end of 2016, offering tailored services to

local clients. At the same time, 54 commercial banks from

20 countries and regions along the Belt and Road have

established branches, financial companies or representative

offices in China, seeking opportunities with the initiative.

According to the Guiding Principles on Financing the

Development of the Belt and Road, governments along

the Belt and Road should coordinate to provide favorable

policy environments for financing. The guiding principles

also suggest letting the private sector play a larger role in

the initiative, and encouraging financial innovation while

enhancing cooperation on financial regulation.

Consolidated Consensus

China aims to work with other countries to build the

Belt and Road into an open platform of cooperation and

a solution for challenges, including a lack of new growth

drivers, development imbalance and terrorism. President

Xi Jinping said China hoped to create a big family of

harmonious co-existence, and the pursuit of the Belt and

Road will not resort to outdated geopolitical manoeuvring.

To ease concerns, Xi said China has no intention of

interfering in internal affairs of other countries, exporting

its social system and model of development, or imposing

its will on others.

accounting for 8.5 percent of total overseas investment

made by Chinese enterprises.

The Chinese President in his speech also mentioned China

will expand China-Europe railway cargo services and

establish new mechanisms, including a liaison office for

the forum’s follow-up activities and a research centre. With

coordinated and sustained collaboration among all parties

concerned, the forum will mark the start of the Belt and

Road 2.0.

Opportunities for New Zealand

Attending the forum showed that New Zealand wanted to

be part of the discussion. New Zealand and China signed a

ground-breaking memorandum of understanding on Belt

and Road Initiative in March. The longer-term target is to

work with China to develop a plan on how New Zealand

can participate and contribute to the initiative.

One of the eye-catching outcomes of the forum was China’s

hefty financial support to advance the initiative, including

an additional 100 billion yuan (14.5 billion U.S. dollars) to

the Silk Road Fund.

China will also encourage its financial institutions to

conduct overseas yuan fund businesses with an estimated

amount of about 300 billion yuan. China’s decision to scale

up financial support for the Belt and Road, after billions

of U.S. dollars of investment over the past three years,

underscored the country’s resolution to push forward the

initiative.

The Belt and Road will be open to all. All countries, from

Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania or the Americas, can be

partners of the initiative. So far, the initiative has won

support from more than 100 countries and international

organizations, of which over 40 have signed cooperation

agreements.

Landmark Significance

The Belt and Road initiative has gone beyond vision and

become a reality, delivering tangible benefits to countries

along the routes. From Mongolia to Malaysia, Thailand to

Pakistan and Laos to Uzbekistan, many projects, including

high-speed railways, bridges, ports, industrial parks, oil

pipelines and power grids, are being built. Since 2013,

Chinese businesses have invested more than 60 billion

U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road. The

investment totalled 14.5 billion dollars in 2016 alone,

This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

Coming back from the Belt and Road Forum for

International Cooperation, Paul Goldsmith who is New

Zealand’s Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of

Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, said the forum

“was a very impressive and significant event.” As the head

of the New Zealand delegation, Goldsmith said during an

interview that he sees the Belt and Road Initiative as the

re-management, re-invention and re-invigoration of the

ancient trade routes. He said “The Silk Road is a starting

point and an expression of support for the open market,

reducing trade barriers, increasing connectivity across the

world. He said that as a small trading nation, New Zealand

“obviously has a keen interest on all those things” and

New Zealand is well aware of the opportunities that China

provide especially for bilateral trade.

Being Minister of Science and Innovation, Mr. Goldsmith

is particularly interested in the themes of the Belt and

Road Initiative on innovation, which is the particular

field that New Zealand is focused on. New Zealand is

also looking into how the two countries can continue to

work together on innovation in many fields. New Zealand

universities have long time relationships with Chinese

leading universities. Mr. Goldsmith said that there’s a good

prospect for New Zealand and China to further develop

science connections under the Belt and Road Initiative.

she said.

She said she initially had

doubts that police would be able

to respond to any breaches of

conditions, but said Corrections

reassured her police would make

it a “top priority.”

Residents association chairwoman

Julie Tobbell said it was

good to allow the community to

voice their concerns.

“I will be looking to set up a

meeting with concerned residents

and Corrections at a later

date once I find out how many

people would be interested in it,”

she said.

No specific details about the

offender were discussed at the

meeting, Ms Tobbell said.

The next time the residents

association will meet is July

10, but Ms Tobbell said there

could be another meeting set up

if there was a large number of

interested residents who wanted

to attend.

Schools were notified by Corrections

staff who 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

Changing attitudes lower the number

• By Bridget Rutherford

DRINK DRIVING charges have

almost halved in Canterbury

over the past decade – a shift

police say is down to changed

attitudes.

The latest drink driving figures

show the number of people

charged for driving under the influence

of alcohol in Canterbury

was 1658 last year, compared

with 2543 in 2007.

Of those, 1604 were convicted

last year. There were 2433 convictions

in 2007.

Nationally, the number has

dropped from 27,328 a decade

ago, compared with 16,304 in

2016.

Canterbury

road policing

manager

Inspector Al

Stewart (left)

said police were

encouraged by

the downward

trend.

The trauma and grief caused

by an alcohol-related serious

crash is massive, so less people

affected by alcohol on our roads

make them safer for all road

users and reduces harm in our

communities.”

He said changing public

attitudes to drink driving was

the reason for the decline. It

was not seen as acceptable any

more, he said.

Inspector Stewart said police

had made strategic efforts targeting

alcohol harm, especially on

the roads.

“This has been supported by

the lower drink driving limits

which have encouraged people

to think about their drinking

behaviour and plan to make it

home safely.”

The breath-alcohol limit was

lowered from 400mcg/L to

250mcg/L in December, 2014.

But the limit that triggered

prosecution at court was

400mcg/L.

The latest stats did not include

the number of people given an

infringement notice for driving

over the 250mcg/L limit since it

changed.

But in 2014, the number of

people charged in Canterbury

was 2235, before dropping to

1852 in 2015 and again in 2016.

Bars and pubs have noticed

people are more aware of what

they were drinking, with many

patrons now choosing light beers

and wines.

Valley Inn Tavern owner Dean

Calvert said since the new limit

was introduced in 2014, they had

noticed patrons were buying a lot

more food and snacks to go with

their drink.

“People are eating before they

drive.”

BY THE NUMBERS

Number of drink driving

charges in Canterbury in the

last five years:

2012: 2900

2013: 2472

2014: 2235

2015: 1852

2016: 1658

2012: 2795

2013: 2392

2014: 2187

2015: 1796

2016: 1604

The sale of lower alcohol beer

had also been on the rise, he

said.

There’s definitely a lot more

people drinking the Monteith’s

Mid Strength Ale.”

They had a courtesy van for 14

years and it had always been very

well used, he said.

Sullivans Irish Bar owner

Mark Sullivan said they had

a wide range of non-alcoholic

beverages, as well as low alcohol

beer and alcohol-reduced wine.

They also sold an Edenvale

He said they had seen an increase

in people buying food, and staff

monitored their patrons closely

and encouraged them to eat.

Sullivans manager Subhadra

Marshall said: “People are more

aware of what they’re drinking.”

The statistics showed in

Christchurch, 1562 appeared in

the district court charged with

drink driving last year. It was

2080 in 2007.

In comparison, last year 78

people appeared in the Ashburton

District Court charged

with drink driving, and 170 in

Timaru.

In 2007, people aged 19-yearsold

and under had the most

convictions for drink driving in

Christchurch with 473.

But last year, the number of

under-19s convicted had dropped

to 154, and the 20-24-year-old

bracket was the highest with 323

convictions.

That was followed by the 25-29

age bracket with 274.

Inspector Stewart said police

and communities could not be

complacent.

People needed to continue to

have “hard conversations” with

family members, whatever their

age, if they were putting themselves

and others at risk by drink

driving, he said.

“Police will continue to enforce

alcohol-related offending at a high

level to reduce the trauma and

family harm that results from it.”

policing manager Inspector

Al Stewart says police have

been targeting alcohol harm

in general, and especially on

the roads.

attitude has not deterred

others

•A 38-year-old woman

was caught drink driving

more than four times the

legal limit with her two

young children in Rolleston.

Melanie Susan Trebilco

pleaded guilty to a charge

of driving with excess

blood alcohol after being

caught at a random stop on

Tennyson St on December

9. Her alcohol level was

1157mcg/L. Police said she

refused to let officers escort

her three and

nine-year-old children, as

the car did not have car

seats. She was disqualified

from driving for eight

months, and fined $1000 in

January.

•On the same day,

another Rolleston mother

recorded a reading of

696mcg/L when stopped

in Faringdon subdivision

with her four-year-old child

in the car. The 35-year-old

was pulled over after failing

to stop at a stop sign.

•Well-known race car

driver and businessman

Paul Kelly was caught by

police doing a burnout

in a classic car outside

a Christmas party while

under the influence. The

47-year-old had been

drinking for the day on

December 16 and blew

853mcg/L. He was

disqualified from driving for

six months and fined $600.

• Sarah Jane Arrow was

on a zero-alcohol licence

when she got behind the

wheel after drinking last

year. The 45-year-old was

driving along Main Rd,

four times the legal limit,

and failed to take a bend,

crashing into pedestrian

Ben Appleton. He flew

2m onto the rocks below,

suffering two broken legs,

and a fractured skull and

spine. In September Arrow

was sentenced to twoand-a-half

years in prison

and was banned from

driving for the rest of her

life. She was ordered to pay

$2500 in reparation to Mr

Appleton. It was her fourth

conviction for drink driving.

Bishop in protest

• By Gabrielle Stuart

BISHOP Victoria

Matthews is set to speak at

a State houses sale protest

rally this weekend – but

she won’t be the guest of

honour there.

Instead, the top speaker

position has been given

to the tenants of the state

houses, so they can tell

their own

stories.

The rally

on Saturday

will

protest the

Victoria

Matthews

proposed

sale of up

to 2500

state houses

in Christchurch, about 40

per cent of the city’s state

housing stock.

The sell-off plan was

announced in November

by Bill English, who said

it was opportunity for a

private social housing provider

to renew and develop

the homes.

But Christchurch social

agencies, including the

Methodist Mission

and Tenants Protection

John Key lived as a child is one of up to 2500 which

could be sold under a Government plan. ​

Association, have criticised

the plan.

Protest organiser

Marney Ainsworth said

people were concerned the

state housing sold would

be run for profit, and

people living there would

suffer.

“A woman came up to

me after one meeting and

said she felt very ashamed

of herself, because she

hadn’t clicked that these

were real, live, human,

people. That’s what we’re

trying to show,” she said.

Victoria Matthews said

she planned to speak at

the protest to support the

people living there.

“I’m less concerned

about who owns state

housing, and more

concerned about the maintenance

of it and the response

to those who need

extra support. The need to

care for our neighbour is

more important than who

owns the housing,” she

said.

Labour MP Megan

Woods and Green MP

Eugenie Sage are also set to

speak at the meeting. Ms

Ainsworth said National

MPs Amy Adams and

Gerry Brownlee had both

been invited, but neither

had responded.

Health funding at risk

assessment – breaking the rules

around the Government funding.

In March, the health board was

told it could face a $24 million

funding cut as penalty if it did

not catch up by the end of June.

That means having fewer than

one per cent of patients waiting

for more than six months, and

completing the year’s target of

20,982 non-emergency surgeries

this month.

The CDHB already faces

financial problems, with a estimated

budget shortfall this year

of more than $39 million.

The CDHB met with the

Ministry of Health to discuss

the situation last month, and the

health board was on track

to achieve the targets at that

the local school and began his

collecting interest of historic

items while there.

He went onto Christchurch

Wig out in support of the

Child Cancer Foundation

STAR MEDIA staff will don

their wigs on Wednesday to

raise money for a very worthy

cause – and we are urging you

to as well.

Wig Wednesday will take

place on June 21 to raise

money for the Child Cancer

Foundation, which provides

personalised support for children

diagnosed with cancer and

their families. Participants just

need to wear a wig, and bring a

donation.

Star Media publishes The Star,

six community newspapers,

magazines, including Style, Kiwi

Gardener and Rugby News, and

has a website www.star.kiwi

Star Media director Charlotte

Smulders, who organises the

annual Child Cancer Foundation

Christmas Party, said Wig

Wednesday would raise much

needed funds.

“Child Cancer Foundation is

an essential and amazing support

service for families going

through their cancer journey,”

she said.

“I think this is a unique and

fun way to support them, and

it brings the Star Media team

together for a great cause.”

In last year’s Wig Wednesday,

businesses, schools, community

groups and individuals donned

their wigs to raise more than

$90,000.

“We’re hoping to build on

those numbers again this year.

It’s so much fun and easy for

people to participate; simply

don a wig and make a donation,”

Child Cancer Foundation

national commercial manager

Jo Clark said.

Every week more than three

children in New Zealand are

diagnosed with cancer.

The Child Cancer Foundation

receives no direct funding from

the Government, so relies on

the generosity of the public, and

events such as this.

Star Media wants you to join

in. Take photos of yourself, your

school or business taking part

in Wig Wednesday and send

them to bridget.rutherford@

Those who send in the best

Complaints leave red zone

in doubt for future concerts

• By Bridget Rutherford

LARGE EVENTS are unlikely

to be held in a red zone park

again after a trial concert left

damage to the grounds and noise

complaints.

It comes after calls to hold

more events in the red zone to

take pressure off Hagley Park.

Australian musician Tash

Sultana played in The Bedford

Marquee at Burwood’s Donnell

Sports Park on May 25.

It was one of three sold-out

shows performed in New Zealand,

organised by her management

and CRS Music.

The park had never been used

for that type of event before, and

the city council decided future

use of the site was to be determined

on the outcome of it.

A recently-released city council

report said its events partnerships

and development team would

not “actively recommend” the

park for future events with heavy

infrastructure such as marquees

and truck movements.

But the report said the team

would assess any application on a

“case-by-case basis.”

It came after the city council

received four noise complaints

from the Tash Sultana concert,

The Star

two of which were after the event

had finished.

The report said the ground was

not ideal for future events of this

scale, as trucks driving on it had

caused damage due to how wet

it was.

The cost of that damage was

being covered by the concert

organisers. CRS Music did not

respond to The Star.

But the report said for the most

part, the feedback from residents

had been positive. In February,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said more

events should be held in the red

zone to take pressure off Hagley

Park. Hands off Hagley had been

concerned with the damage being

caused to Hagley due to the number

of events being held there.

The city council report said the

public had expressed interest to

utilise parts of the red zone for

events.

Playhouses take shape for charity

FUTURISTIC, CLASSIC or

quirky – three unique and very

different playhouses are taking

shape, all in aid of charity.

The playhouses are being

designed and built by three

teams of Canterbury architects

and builders, and are set to be

auctioned at the Star Home &

Leisure Show in less than three

weeks.

The money raised will go to

charities – Birthright Canterbury,

which supports single

parent families in need, and

Tenants Protection Association

Christchurch, which works to

protect and support tenants.

Tenants Protection Association

manager Di Harwood said

the Playhouse Challenge was a

perfect fit for both charities.

“Housing is an important issue

for clients of both organisations

and demand for advice and

support has remained high ever

since the first Canterbury earthquakes,”

she said.

Birthright Canterbury manager

Rhodora Sagles said the

playhouses were “real statement

pieces” and she could see them

suiting businesses, pre-schools or

private backyards.

The teams creating the playhouses

are Fusion

Homes with

Scratch Architecture;

Irving Builders

with PXA

Architects;

and Pound

Road Trading.

Star Media

is the major

sponsor of the Playhouse

Challenge, which is also being

supported by Priority Communications,

Wyma Engineering,

Resene, Robertson Creative, and

Dave Richards Photography.

Star Media general manager

Steve McCaughan said it was a

worthy cause.

“We are big supporters of

Birthright Canterbury and

Tenants Protection Association,

who have been looking after

Canterbury people for many

many years.”

The playhouses would also be

something special, he said.

They will be judged on their

architectural design and construction,

as well as how much

fun they are for kids,” he said.

The Playhouse Challenge was

inspired by Australia’s popular

Cubby House Challenge,

QUIRKY: Fusion Homes’ playhouse final design (top left)

combines solid construction and foam insulation for warmth and

vibrant colours as seen during its construction. ​

which this year raised well over

$100,000 for the charity ‘Kids

Under Cover’.

The judges will include Birthright

Canterbury chair Jane

Lancaster, Tenants Protection

Association board member

and early childhood educator

Blanche Head.

Lions give city a boost

Nicky Wagner

WHAT A game. The Crusaders

may not have won at the

weekend but Christchurch

certainly did – the city came

alive with thousands of eager

rugby fans.

The visit by the British and

Irish Lions, their support staff

and loyal fans was a boost of

energy and income, but also an

opportunity to take stock of our

tourism sector.

The latest Greater Christchurch

Dashboard – Tourism,

released on Sunday, looks at

international visitor arrivals to

Christchurch Airport, guest

nights and accommodation

availability.

Overall, while tourism is not

back at pre-quake levels, visitor

numbers and accommodation

capacity are increasing.

It’s particularly pleasing to

see annual international visitor

numbers to Christchurch

Airport (as of April this year)

reach more than 500,000 for

the first time since the quakes.

Total tourism expenditure in

the greater Christchurch area is

estimated at $2.3 billion in the

12 months to April 2017.

Capacity at motels and holiday

parks is almost back to 2010

levels, but there’s still some work

to do in the hotel sector, with

bed numbers in March 2017 at

56 per cent of 2010 numbers.

We know the central city was

struck hard in the quakes and a

lot of building stock, including

hotels, were lost. A number of

hotels have re-opened, two more

are in the process of substantial

refurbishment or repairs, and

new ones are in the pipeline,

such as the Holiday Inn Express

on Gloucester St, scheduled to

open next year.

I was lucky enough to attend

the game on Saturday, but I

know thousands more watched

from local bars and restaurants,

as well as the temporary fan

zone on Poplar St in the Innovation

Precinct.

Locals also embraced

travelling Lions by offering beds

and campervan parking spots

through the unofficial “Adopt a

Lions Fan” Facebook page.

This all shows that in spite of

greater Christchurch’s ongoing

tourism challenges, the area

is very much on the map and

heading in the right direction.

As a community, we can do

our part by helping domestic

and international visitors see

Christchurch the way we do –

not as a broken place, but a city

of opportunity.

Readers respond to a

transport expert’s calls for

the city council to reduce

speed limits in a bid to

improve safety

Allan and Maureen

Goulstone, Aidanfield – We

are residents in the Anthony

Wilding Retirement Village in

Aidanfield. We like your article

on lowering speed limits in the

June 8 edition of The Star. We

feel that speed limits should

be reduced around retirement

villages as well as the list you

gave. For the two and a half

years we have lived here, I’ve

battled to have the 80km/h

speed limit on a 0.9km section of

Halswell Rd, between Dunbars

and Hendersons Rds, reduced

to 60km/h, in line with the

speed limit from Dunbars Rd

through the Halswell village. I

feel I’ve been playing ping-pong

with the authorities on this. It’s

a national transport authority

decision, apparently. So no-one

will do anything. The limit, as it

stands, seems to me to be quite

ridiculous.

One other aspect of this is that

there is a bus stop serving the

Orange Line on the east side of

Halswell Rd ‘opposite’ Aidanfield

Dr. Our residents have to run to

get across the road, taking their

lives in their hands to do so.

Blessings on your work. May it

succeed beyond expectation.

Carmina Blewett,

Redwood – Living my entire 17

years in Redwood’s winding and

narrow Barnes Rd, I have grown

up to witness, on a daily basis,

the excessive speeds hoons and

reckless drivers alike strive to

outside my gate. Is 60km/h really

an appropriate speed limit with

oncoming vehicles, and pets and

children on the road side?

Matthew Tansey – The

(transport expert) is a bike riding

dreamer. Don’t wreck our new

city any further with your stupid

lower speed limits and your

segregated bike lanes that make it

dangerous for every car driver.

Christine Schuler – Who

gets up to 50km/h outside malls

or schools (far too many people

waiting to pick up kids)? It’s nothing

to do with speed, it’s poorly

designed roads and congestion.

creating the crashes, it is the

confusion. The road rules say

one thing, the signs say another.

Katherine Zeg – Why?

Nobody does 30, not even the

police. Why don’t you not look

at the speed, but the fact that

people are too busy looking

down at their phones or not

crossing at the lights? Why is

it always just the speed of cars

that’s the problem?

Tamsin Carter – Better

policing is needed to enforce the

current 40km/h limit outside

schools. I was once overtaken

by a courier van when sticking

to 40km/h outside a school in

the morning when the extra

signs were lit. Some people will

just not obey the rules and need

to be stopped by police when

they speed past a school.

Immigration reform

NEW Zealand is

a country built on

immigration.

When new migrants

arrive in our cities and

our country, we are all

the better for it. My

own family arrived in a couple

of waves of migration in the late

19th and early 20th centuries

from England and Ireland. We

all have our family migration

histories, whether it be a waka,

sailing ship, boat or plane. We’ve

always welcomed migrants in this

country and will continue to do

so.

A Government’s job is to ensure

that the number of people arriving

matches our economic needs and

ability to cope with the population

growth. In recent years, the

National Government has failed

to do this. Since 2013, immigration

has been more than four

times what was planned for – that

means 130,000 more people than

expected have settled here. National

hasn’t made the necessary

investments in public services and

infrastructure to support new arrivals.

This has contributed to the

housing crisis, put pressure on our

health system and schools, and

added to the congestion on roads.

This week, Labour announced

moderate and sensible reforms

to immigration that will reduce

the pressure on cities, while still

making sure our businesses and

regions can access the skilled

workers our country needs. We

have reviewed the system and

found ways to end abuse of the

system, particularly the backdoor

immigration through low-value

education.

Businesses facing genuine skills

shortages will be able to get the

skilled migrants they need. Labour’s

KiwiBuild and Exceptional

Skills Visas will help bring in

skilled workers for construction

and areas like IT and health.

This is not about slashing immigration.

In fact immigration will

continue above levels overseen by

either Helen Clark or John Key.

It’s about taking a breather and

ensuring that all New Zealanders,

whether their families have been

here for five generations or five

days, have access to great housing,

schools and healthcare.

Philip Norman

Composer scores grant to keep

Dr Philip Norman has been granted a $100,000 Michael King

Fellowship to pursue a lifetime project about New Zealand

composers. He spoke with Gabrielle Stuart about burning

bras, brutal reviews and making money out of music

How how did you get the news

of this grant?

I got the call about a fortnight

ago. It was a lovely surprise.

Who wouldn’t like to be offered

$100,000 to pursue one of their

projects? This is something I’ve

been working on for a while, but

the fellowship means I can concentrate

on it, turn down other

work, and get it done.

How long have you been

working on this?

I would dread to think. I

started this project in 1978 when

I began studying for my PHD

at the University of Canterbury,

before I realised it was too big a

project to do in that time. So I

put in a year on it then, and add

to that another 10,000 hours

every few years since.

You’ve already written a bibliography

with stories of about

120 New Zealand composers. I

have to confess, I didn’t know

we had so many composers

here.

You can actually add one or

two to that – there are about

1200 people out there composing.

If I listed all of them that

would be the whole word count

of the book right there, but it

would look like a phonebook.

So this will focus just on people

who have had a real impact with

their work.

It’s funny really, today we’ve

got many, many people composing

because computer technology

makes so much possible.

But go back 100 years, and there

were thousands of people composing

then. It was something

you had a go at, because of

course there was no radio or

music recordings, so for many

people that was their source of

entertainment. Many people

were something else by day

and composer by night.

Is being based here at

the bottom of the world,

an advantage or disadvantage

to composers?

I found it to be a huge

disadvantage, principally

because the world’s cultural

traffic flows southward. It comes

from London and New York

and trickles down until it finally

one day arrives in Invercargill.

It makes it hard for New

Zealand composers to

swim against that tide,

because you don’t

have that huge

promotional

machinery behind you that they

do in those cities. Having said

that, I wouldn’t wish to live in

London or New York. The advantages

of being here outweigh

the difficulties.

Your pieces have been performed

in some amazing theatres

and venues across the world

– what are some that have stood

out?

writing about his love for music

I’ve actually hardly ever been

overseas. The life of a composer

is not well remunerated, so it’s

not something I could afford to

do.

That’s a real shame.

I think it’s very sad, although

I’m biased of course. But the

reality is the royalty I get for a

piece performed at a concert

wouldn’t be sufficient to buy a

programme, let alone fly across

the world.

But actually, what excites me

the most is having my pieces

performed in front of my own

audiences, my own people here.

It’s nice to say something you

wrote has been performed in

Timbuktu, but it’s more special

to have people you love watching

it. It gives me great pride to see

someone take the time to learn

and put their heart and soul into

performing my work, it doesn’t

matter if it’s one person or 100.

What was the first instrument

you learned?

I learned the cello when I was

eight or nine, so it was taller than

I was. My mother was a music

teacher, and a great source of

inspiration and help. But what

really lit my fire was Gilbert and

Sullivan musicals at school. My

friends and I used to write comic

ICONIC: The Adamstown Theatre in Australia performing the

Footrot Flats musical, one of the most successful shows Philip

Norman has written music for.

operettas during our school

holidays – I’m not sure if that’s a

normal pastime? But one of the

first we performed at school was

all about the women’s liberation

meetings at Parliament. I still remember

the opening line: Burn

the bra, burn the bra! That was

very risqué then, so we loved it.

After school, did your family

ever tell you to get a real job?

My father often used that

line. He was a headmaster, so

that made for an interesting

childhood. But my father also

always had a creative streak,

so he had admiration for the

fact I was using my creativity. I

was determined, even at 18, to

make a career out of music. So

at university I wrote, again with

friends, a series of musicals.

One had a wonderful title, Stiff

Luck to the Undertaker, and it

went quite well. It was difficult at

times. I was privileged to be part

of the team writing the Footrot

Flats musical and, after the hours

of work spent on it, I said if I

couldn’t get a decent return, I

would give it up. But fortunately

it did well.

Have you ever had to turn to

other work, to pay the bills?

Actually no, I haven’t had to

do the traditional things like

flip burgers at McDonald’s, so I

count myself enormously privileged.

I haven’t really ever undertaken

something just because I

have needed the money, either –

I have always been interested in

it. But perhaps that’s also because

I have wide interests.

What are some reviews of

your work that have stood out

to you over the years?

You mean times I’ve been

roasted? There have been

many. One I really rather relish

was from one of the London

critics, who are known for their

savagery. One said I should be

noted for writing one of the

world’s first tune-free musicals.

I didn’t appreciate it at the time,

but I do rather appreciate that

now.

You’ve also earned many

honours and accolades for your

work. Which has meant the

most to you?

Receiving the Companion of

the New Zealand Order of Merit.

That was something really quite

special.

Outside your work, what are

some of your pet passions?

Well, pets actually. My current

delight is a pet rabbit by

the name of Harvey. Harvey

Norman. There’s something

about this rabbit, he’s been a real

joy. My children are also a real

source of joy. It’s incredibly interesting

seeing them develop into

skilled and fascinating young

adults.

What are your musical guilty

pleasures?

I’m of the belief there are no

musical guilty pleasures. Whatever

you enjoy is worth listening

to. I admit I get very moved by

the sound of bagpipes, and jazz

has been something I’ve loved for

years. So I do have eclectic tastes.

So you would listen to a rap

song every now and then?

I’m full of admiration for some

rap, actually. This is the street

poetry of now, and the voice of

youth. I predict before too long

there will be university studies of

rap, there probably already are.

With all styles of music, there

are bad examples and well done

examples. With rap some of the

worst is terrible, but in the best

there is a lot to admire.

Community digs in to help improve local environment

Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee

By Arapata Rueben, Zone Committee Chair

A big thank you

to those of you in

Christchurch who

showed up last

month to help

clean up some

of our wonderful

Christchurch

waterways.

Over 750 people participated in the

“Mother of all Clean Ups 2017” and nearly

9 tonnes of rubbish was collected from

the 156 kilometres of river bank bordering

the Avon and Heathcote Rivers, Kerrs

Reach and the Avon-Heathcote Estuary.

The largest culprit in the rubbish stakes

was plastic, with hundreds of carrier

bags, food wrappers, straws and bottles

being pulled from the rivers. The good

news was that less rubbish was collected

this year than in 2016. I like to think that

this is because the clean ups are making

a difference and that they are also making

people stop and think about how they

dispose of their rubbish and the impact

that dropping litter on the ground has

on the environment.

At the meeting last month of the

Christchurch West Melton Zone

Committee the Avon Otakaro Network

gave an update on plans for the 12

kilometre City to Sea river trail which

will open in stages from Spring this year.

The trail is expected to be completed in

early 2018 and you will be able walk, run

or cycle from Barbadoes Street to Pages

Road in New Brighton. For now though,

residents are able to use sections of the

trail as they are completed, so make the

most of this new facility and get out and

enjoy our river.

Work is continuing to undertake plantings

on the Port Hills to help with sediment

control and an aerial seeding programme

has been completed in some areas. The

Port Hills Volunteer planting days are

continuing throughout June so if you are

keen to be involved, the meeting place is

Princess Margaret Hospital on Saturday

June 17, Thursday June 22 and Saturday

June 24 from 12.15 – 4.00pm. Volunteer

spaces are limited so you do need to

register. Many thanks to Environment

Canterbury for providing transport for

volunteers from the hospital up to the

hill. For any queries about the volunteer

days, please contact Ranger Di Carter,

di.carter@ccc.govt.nz.

LOOK A LITTLE DEEPER

www.canterburywater.org

And finally, this month Environment

Canterbury has launched an information

campaign, helping people in our cities

and towns to become more informed

about the action being taken across the

region to protect our precious water. This

year, Environment Canterbury is working

closely with farmers as strict new rules

are implemented, rules which limit the

effects of farming on water quality. You

too can ‘look a little deeper’ by visiting

Window dressing

No matter whether your garden is big or small, there’s

plenty more room to grow on the windowsill says

Rachel Vogan

.kiwi

Thursday June 15 2017

TIMES CHANGE and so do gardens.

This winter sees me relocating to a new

abode; a barn conversion. I have had a

seismic shift of sorts, going from a large

established garden to nothing. I am back

to the start-from-scratch scenario, and it’s

both fun and challenging.

Therefore, my crops this winter have to

be portable, productive, tasty and easy to

grow.

As there is little room for much outside

just yet, all my edibles are growing on the

windowsills around the new dwelling. It’s

almost like living in an apartment.

1. ROCKET

Where, oh where, would I be without

rocket? I grow both the perennial and

annual types and through winter the

serrated peppery leaves of the come-again

variety are one of my go-to crops. Either

sow seeds now or treat yourself to some

seedlings. The trick to keep the leaves

coming is to pick and harvest on a regular

basis. Not a lot of root room is required

either, so a plant will readily grow in a

takeaway coffee cup, if the container starts

to get a bit ratty, slip a new one underneath

the original one. Too easy.

2. BASIL

Yes, crazy I know, but it will keep growing

as a cutting in a glass of water over winter

if your kitchen doesn’t drop below 10 deg

C very often. And, so far, mine is chugging

away with plenty of vigour, mostly due

to the log burner, which is constantly

burning to keep the temperatures from

plummeting.

3. PARSLEY

What a campaigner this crop is. The curly

type is happy as, quietly hanging out on

the windowsill. I use a lot of it, so it never

gets too leggy. Pinch the stalks right back to

the base of the plant to keep the new flush

of flavour-filled leaves coming through

quicker and faster.

4. KALE & THE CABBAGE FAMILY

When I first started growing kale on the

windowsill I thought this would fail to get

past microgreens stage, but it didn’t. In

The magazine for

gardeners who

like To geT Their

hands dirTy

fact, it’s been one of the best crops. And

what’s even better is that I am using it far

more often as it is so handy, and is quite

sweet when the leaves are about thumb

size.

5. LETTUCE

The frilly lettuces are thriving. Whilst they

can get a bit leggy if I give them too much

water, or leave them too long between

harvest, they quickly re-grow new leaves

once I pluck them or give them a haircut

with the nail scissors. I rotate the pots

every few days so as the plants retain an

even shape.

7. SUPER SPROUTS

Goodness in a jar. Are sprouted seeds

your thing? Well, they never used to be

mine and now I use them most days. All

you need is a jar, a spot with good light,

some water and seeds, and you are in

business. Too easy. Consider having three

jars on the go at any one time, and soak

new seeds twice a week – this way you will

never run out.

8. MICROGREENS

These pint-sized seedlings are just the

ticket in winter. They are bigger than

sprouted seeds, but smaller than salad

leaves. Last year I grew them for the first

time and this year they are making an

appearance once again. I sow them into

those shallow takeaway containers with a

few holes poked into the bottom.

9. ARTHRITIS HERB – GOTU KOLA

(CENTELLA ASIATICA)

This wee gem is sensitive to frost, so

it needs to be tucked up inside. It will

cope with a spot away from direct light,

especially if the windowsill is getting a bit

full with other crops. I grow mine in the

bathroom.

I grow this purely for medicinal reasons; it

helps ease general aches and pains and has

definitely helped reduce my blood pressure.

Some people swear it eases arthritic pain.

Two leaves a day does the trick, easily

chopped finely into a salad

or thrown in with the greens for a

smoothie.

COMPACT: Little lettuce (left) and gotu

kola are easy to grow in tight spaces.

Rocket (below) needs to be picked on

a regular basis.

ALAS, POOR Yorick, I did not

know you well in this version of

verbal mayhem.

A male-dominated piece with

much clowning by the leads as they

took the mickey out of Shakespeare

using a video format. Instead of

something rotten in the state of

Denmark there was something

comedic as the trio spoofed the

original.

Not really a farce, in spite of the

rapid entrances and exits, more of

a parody. Being familiar with the

traditional version of the classic

helps with the humour, but even

without such knowledge there were

plenty of laughs there for all. It all

worked, even the simplest scene of

one character getting another character’s

name mispronounced.

Dan Bain, Kathleen Burns and

Jared Corbin can feel well pleased

with their performances as the audience’s

laughter kept on coming.

The show runs until June 24. Well

worth checking out.

Choir in harmony with art gallery

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN MUSICAL director

Ravil Atlas first heard the

acoustics in the Christchurch

Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu, he was determined

to bring more choral

performances to the space.

When Atlas heard his

Christchurch Pops Choir

singing at a

casual afternoon

performance, he

decided he needed

to bring his advanced

choir in to

perform.

Ravil Atlas

Now his choir,

known as the AtlasVoices

Ensemble,

will transform the gallery

into a majestic state performing

Echo: The Glory of Cathedral

Acoustic, a repertoire of music,

which Atlas describes as being

built entirely around the art gallery’s

acoustics.

He said the acoustics give him

fond memories of being in a

cathedral – something choirs in

the city miss.

Audiences can expected to be

transported back to the Renaissance

period with the concert

featuring music from composers

Giovanni Gabrieli, Tomás

MUSICAL: Members of the AtlasVoices Ensemble

performing at The Piano: Centre for Music and the Arts.

Luis de Victoria and Giovanni

Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Atlas said in the time that the

choir has been running, this

concert has been their biggest

challenge yet. They will use

their voices to create layers of

melody known as polyphony

music.

But the choir will also present

an array of songs from modern

composers, including Eric

Whitacre’s anchor piece When

David Heard.

Atlas said the piece has a

chord which requires the choir

to sing every note on the keyboard

at the same time.

“It is like putting your arm on

the whole organ . . . it is a tidal

wave of grief,” Atlas said.

The choir was founded in

2013 as an offshoot of the

Christchurch School of Music to

give singers in the community

something more to do.

The choir is made up of performers

from Showbiz Christchurch,

Christchurch Pops Choir,

New Zealand Opera and former

Burnside High School students

Atlas has taught.

Atlas has an extensive performing

career, playing the Jean

Valjean in the San Francisco

broadway company version of

Les Miserables and the phantom

in Phantom of the Opera.

He recently featured as a mentor

on TVNZ’s The Naked Choir

and was excited Christchurchbased

modern a cappella academy

Voices Co is now on the

map after winning the show.

Next up Atlas will be preparing

a repertoire of music for the

opening of the Christchurch

Arts Festival in August.

The actor behind the mask

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

USING FACIAL expressions to

express a story is normally an

actor’s lifeline for executing a

great stage performance.

But not for Andrew Ford, 34,

who has delved into mastering

the art of deception and disguise

in a show featuring predominantly

masked

characters.

Auckland-based

Ford, who grew

up in Sumner,

will set foot on

the Isaac Theatre

Andrew

Ford

Royal stage as a

bombastic villain

in a comedy about

love, death and preserves.

He said the show has been a

challenge because he has had to

emphases his body movements

and voice, rather than rely on

the simplicity of facial expressions.

“It is great because it gives you

permission to give really big,

larger than life performances,

which I enjoy doing,” the former

Hagley Theatre Company student

said.

As part of Indian Ink Theatre

Company’s 20th anniversary national

tour, Ford has been cast as

COMEDY: Andrew Ford as George Reaper and Vanessa Kumar

playing Anmachy in The Pickle King.

George Reaper in the company’s

award-winning play, The Pickle

King.

He describes his character as

over-the-top, flamboyant and in

love with the sound of his own

voice.

Ford has had a colourful

career since he graduated from

Auckland’s Unitec in 2008.

Five times Ford has performed

in Christchurch’s Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre show

and was recently in this year’s

performance of Robin Hood.

Shortland St fans may have

seen Ford make a guest appearance

on the soap as an “insensitive

doctor”.

He said things happen very

quickly behind the scenes and

actors need to be at the top of

their game.

Although a comedy, The

Pickle King tells the story of a

blind receptionist working at a

crumbling hotel in Wellington

who believes she is cursed as

everyone she loves dies.

In spite of the curse, she falls

in love with a another hotel

employee and at the same time

a mysterious new guest (Ford)

checks into the hotel who she

believes to be the Grim Reaper.

“For me, the main message

about the show, and it may be

corny, is about having the courage

to love someone . . . she feels

cursed but still falls in love,”

Ford said.

As part of Indian Ink’s anniversary

celebrations, the original

performance of The Pickle King

about 15 years ago has been

changed from a heterosexual to

a same sex love story.

Ford said very little of the

script needed to be adapted and

it was nice to see audiences were

accepting of the gender change

in the show.

The show also touches on

immigration and the difficulty

many face when they move to

a new country and find their

qualifications mean nothing.

The Pickle King will run

at the Isaac Theatre Royal

from today until Saturday.

will also be run by Indian Ink

Theatre Company. For more

NOT ONE, but three Cathedral

Grammar School pupils have been

chosen to star as the lovable von

Trapp children in a nationwide

tour of The Sound of Music.

Daniel Bridgman, Eloise Parkes

said it was fantastic news and

the pupils were delighted to have

secured the professional roles.

Following a month of rehearsals,

the tour will begin in the

Invercargill.

It will be on at the Isaac Theatre

Travel

DMZ – where tourism and terror collide

• By Mike Yardley

IT’S THE racket blasting from

the loudspeakers that is still

ringing in my ears.

From the south, soaring operatic

ballads and K-Pop are belted

out, while from the north, a mix

of angry sermons and bombastic

propaganda songs salute the Dear

Leader.

Galloping across the

countryside for 250km, with

a 2km-wide buffer zone either

side of the border, the razor wire

stretches into infinity. I joined a

DMZ day-trip from Seoul, which

is a mere 50km drive away from

the border.

As we drove towards the great

divide, either side of the highway

was laced with elaborate reams

of razor wire, while manned

military look-outs studded the

roadside, in full battle readiness.

Within the buffer zone, tank

traps and land mines stalk the

countryside. My guide, Moon,

remarked there’s an estimated

two million land mines still in

the DMZ from the Korean War –

after a million have already been

cleared.

Panmunjeom is where the

armistice agreement was signed

in 1953. You’ll recognise those

United Nations-blue buildings,

the site of the world’s most

famous face-off, where South and

North Korean soldiers stare interminably

at each other through

sunglasses.

In spite of the macho sense of

theatre, the air hangs heavy with

unblinking hostility. All DMZ

tours begin at Imjingak, which

HISTORY: The infiltration tunnels aren’t for the faint-hearted. You can walk underground into the north. Right – Dorasan Station

was built to connect Seoul with Pyeongyang. It is largely unused.

features a variety of monuments

in memory of the Korean War.

An 83m bridge, used in the exchange

of 13,000 POWs, is lauded

as the Freedom Bridge.

Nearby, the blasted carcass of

an original steam locomotive,

which desperately made it back

across the Imjin River just as war

broke out, riddled with the scars

of 1020 bullet holes.

Imjingak is also the entry point

into the Third Infiltration Tunnel,

the biggest of four tunnels identified

by the South Koreans since

1974, although there’s apparently

another 20 that haven’t been

spotted yet. Dug by the North

Koreans with the intent of being

able to spring a surprise invasion

on the south, these tunnels aren’t

for the faint-hearted.

Issued with a hard hat, the third

infiltration tunnel leads you 73m

underground, along a 2m wide

by 2m high passage. I felt like the

hunchback of Notre Dame, but

it’s a searing and slightly spooky

encounter to traverse the border,

subterranean-style.

This tunnel, which is large

enough to enable 30,000 soldiers

to tromp through in an hour, was

discovered in 1978 after a defector

tipped off the south.

Another striking stop was

Dorasan Station, a $40 billion

beacon of hope, built 15 years

ago with a view of re-connecting

Seoul and Pyeongyang by rail.

Just 700m from the southern

boundary line of the DMZ, it’s

utterly bizarre to admire this

sparkling yet haplessly underused

train station.

The shiny international customs

hall has never screened a

passenger. A few daily services

run to Seoul, but services to the

North have been on ice since

the North Koreans slammed the

border crossing shut in 2008.

Should Korea be re-united,

Moon says the dream is Dorasan

Station would not only connect

Seoul with Pyeongyang,

but would connect with the vast

Eurasian services like the Trans-

Siberian.

The undeniable highlight was

soaking up the raw cross-border

drama of Dora Observatory.

This lookout serves up the most

intimate view of the north, from

South Korea, as if you can reach

out and touch it, while being assaulted

by those blaring loudspeakers.

With the naked eye, I gazed

down at the streams of barbed

wire along the border, across into

North Korean villages. With the

mounted binoculars, I could see

locals wandering around and a

massive statue of Kim Il-sung,

while the Propaganda Village

touts one of the tallest flags in

the world.

In a classic case of boys will be

boys, the south and north have

played ping-pong for years over

their respective border flagpoles.

The south started the tussle by

erecting a 50m-high flag. Back

and forth they went, outdoing

one another, until the north triumphed

in this battle of attrition,

mounting a 160m-high flagpole.

The flag alone weighs a whopping

300kg. The south threw in

the towel at 110m. The Propaganda

Village is so named because it’s

widely believed that the brightly

coloured buildings are just shells

and are uninhabited.

Even Hollywood would be

left blushing at the sheer scale of

this elaborate set. For me, that

summed up the weirdness of the

DMZ.

A strange, surreal, unsettling

place, where terror and tourism

collide, at one of the world’s flash

points.

INTRIGUE: The blasted carcass of a steam locomotive, riddled with more than 1000 bullet holes. Centre – The Freedom Bridge

and border fortifications. Right – The joint security area where soldiers face-off.

FAST FACTS

•In spite of the current crisis,

day trips from Seoul to

the DMZ remain fiendishly

popular. Every day, 5000

visitors are allowed access

to the buffer zone, while

500 people can also enter

the joint security area at

Panmunjeom. Book well in

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK - JUNE 19-25

Time

and

talent

More than 300 volunteers give tens of

thousands of hours of their time, skills and

compassion to Nurse Maude each and every

year, working across the whole organisation.

Their philosophy is to enhance the quality

of patient care and services and they are

an integral part of Nurse Maude, working

in the Nurse Maude Hospice, hospital,

administration, across the hospice shops

and in the gardens of Nurse Maude.

For Nurse Maude it means being able

to offer a lot more than nursing care,

particularly in the hospice and hospital.

Over the past year Nurse Maude has also

had volunteers in the community, providing

those caring for family members much

needed respite care in their own homes.

Caring for a family member with complex

needs, including those with dementia, in

your own home is a full-on proposition.

Nurse Maude recognises that family can

find it almost impossible to get someone to

come into their home they can rely on and

who is trained and supported to provide the

respite care that allows them to take a short

break.

Sue Bramwell, Nurse Maude’s GM

Marketing, says the contribution of Nurse

Maude’s volunteers is significant.

“To volunteer time and talent to make a

difference in the lives of others is no small

thing,” says Bramwell. “We, and those we

care for, are incredibly fortunate that our

volunteers are willing to give up what is

really a very precious commodity, their

time, to support our work.”

Volunteering a chance to share

This year’s theme for National Volunteer

Week is: “Live, laugh, share – Volunteer”, or,

“Kia ringa hora: Me mahi tuao” – a positive

message celebrating what volunteers bring to

their communities.

Volunteering Canterbury is proud of the way

that the region’s people get out in the community

and volunteer “in the bad times – and the notso-bad!”,

Volunteering Canterbury’s outreach

and marketing manager Glenda Martin says.

“We see it every day in every sector across the

community. Volunteering is something that we

just do well.”

As Glenda points out, in every city there will

be people who get out and do something for

another person. It could be as simple as helping

a neighbour who may be unwell or looking after

a pet while a friend is on holiday.

“That’s the informality of volunteering,” she

says.

“On top of that there is the more formal

volunteering, for a common good, and that is

as much in demand as ever in and around our

region. Volunteers pack and distribute 3000 bags

of fruit and vegetables throughout Christchurch

each week, for example.

“Whether we acknowledge it or not, there are

deprived areas in our city – 65 per cent of those

fruit and vegetable packs are going in to those

areas. Alongside that sit community lunches

– serving up wholesome meals prepared by

volunteers and often with gifted produce.”

Red Cross humanitarian services manager

Carol Ball says a lot of that organisation’s

programmes couldn’t run without volunteers.

They are almost the lifeblood of the

organisation,” she says.

Programmes in which Red Cross volunteers

provide services include Meals on Wheels, for

which they give more than two hours a week,

We sincerely thank our

wonderful volunteers for

their valuable contribution

to Orana Wildlife Park.

and community transport, for which volunteers

work almost a full day, either once a week or

once a fortnight.

Carol says there are close to 1000 Red Cross

volunteers in Christchurch, who continue

volunteering for many years.

“This can be up to 20, 40 even up to 60 years.

We recently gave two 30-year presentations –

that’s not uncommon.”

Volunteering with one of Volunteering

Canterbury’s member organisations is just the

‘tip of the iceberg’ of volunteering happening in

the region, Glenda says. Even so, it equates to

the equivalent of 149 full-time volunteers in the

community on any given day of the year. And,

using the minimum wage as a base rate, this

Huge thanks

to our volunteers!

is a monetarised contribution to the region of

approximately $4.7 million.

“It’s what it looks like at the other end – the

actual impact of the volunteering, that makes

our work so humbling. Last year, 36,000 people

in our region were impacted by volunteers of

our member organisations.

“We all have skills that can help others.

Volunteering is good for you, your community

and for the social development of our city.

It helps build the social fabric that keeps us

connected and engaged.”

For more information on volunteering

opportunities in Canterbury, contact

Volunteering Canterbury www.volcan.org.nz

or phone 366-2442.

It’s Volunteer Awareness Week and New Zealand Red Cross wants

to thank all our amazing volunteers. The programmes we deliver to

vulnerable people in New Zealand communities are diverse and

far-reaching – and we simply couldn’t do it without you!

Armstrong takes out first win

In Brief

• By Gordon Findlater

MARCUS Armstrong’s drive

towards his formula one dream

picked up pace with his first

win in the ADAC Formula 4

Championship at the weekend.

The 16-year-old adapted well

to his first outing at the Red

Bull Ring

in Austria,

dominating

in qualifying

with the

fastest lap

time of 1min

29.954sec.

He then

drove from

Marcus

Armstrong

pole to win

the opening

race of the

weekend – his first victory of

the championship.

“It’s a great feeling to be

celebrating this victory with my

team. I’m obviously dreaming

of the title, but at the moment,

only winning counts for me.

Our car was so fast, I couldn’t

even see what was going on

behind me,” said Armstrong.

He backed up the win with

two solid performances in

the final two races on Sunday,

finishing third in both. The

results mean that he now moves

up to third in the championship

standings after three rounds

and is 29 points behind

championship leader and Prema

Powerteam teammate Juri Vips

from Estonia.

The next event in the sevenround

championship will be

held at Oschersleben, Germany,

from July 7-9.

Last year, Armstrong was

picked up by the Ferrari Driver

Academy.

He was in New Zealand over

the summer and competed in

the Toyota Racing Series, which

he finished fourth in.

Armstrong is also currently

competing in the Italian

Formula 4 Championship

with Prema Powerteam and

is currently fourth in the

championship standings after

two rounds.

SCHOOL CROSS-COUNTRY

Ascot Golf Course will host the

National Secondary Schools

Cross-Country Championships

this weekend. Saturday sees the

running of the individual and

school team championship events.

On Sunday, competitors will

race in the regional relay, which

Canterbury dominated last year,

winning four of the six titles and

getting medals in the other two.

St Bede’s College student Nick

Moulai, who broke a nine-year-old

under-17 3000m national track

and field record in December, will

be among the favourites.

SHARPE TAKES OVER AS

COUNTRY CRICKET COACH

Michael Sharpe will return

to the Canterbury Country

Cricket fold next season with

his appointment as coach of

the senior representative team.

Sharpe played most of his cricket

for Sefton, including 50 matches

for the senior team. Following a

playing career that involved 31

first class and 33 one-day games

for Canterbury, he turned to

coaching, which has also involved

time with the Canterbury side

and New Zealand under-19s. He

replaces Shanan Stewart, who as a

player-coach in 30 games, won and

defended the Hawke Cup.

THREE YOUNG footballers

Rebecca Lake, 18, Lily Bray,

16, and Emma Clarke, 17, are

used to lining up together

for both Coastal Spirit in the

Mainland Women’s Premier

The trio will now represent

New Zealand together at next

month’s under-19 Oceania

Women’s Championship in

Auckland after being named

in coach Gareth Turnbull’s

20-strong squad. The championship

winner will qualify

for next year’s under-20 World

World Cup in France.

will implement changes to

transform the junior game next

summer.

Juniors will now start their

cricket journey on grounds

with shorter pitches, smaller

boundaries and with less fielders,

to enable a faster paced

game with increased activity.

Canterbury Cricket believes

the changes will result in more

balls in play, more runs scored

and increased fielder activity.

The changes include a reduction

in pitch length from 20m

to 16-18m, depending on the

group’s stage, limited boundary

sizes and either seven or nine

players on the field.

Players will progress to playing

on the full-sized adult pitch,

Midfielder Bray has previously

represented New Zealand

in a tournament in China and

at just 16 will be eligible for the

development stages: The under-

10/11s and the under-12/13s.

The changes are based on

extensive research and piloting

by Cricket Australia and have

been endorsed by New Zealand

Cricket, which expects the

next two under-20 World Cups.

It’s a new experience for

right-back Clarke. The qualifying

tournament will be her

first time representing New

Zealand.

“I couldn’t believe it to be

honest when I got the news,”

changes to be implemented

country-wide in the 2018/19

season.

Feedback from the pilot programmes

in Australia showed

that a shorter pitch resulted in

fewer wides and no balls, and

the match scorecards showed

that there were more balls in

the hitting zone for the batsmen.

Canterbury Cricket chief

executive Lee Germon urged

people to consider the changes

as a great opportunity for children

to develop their skills in a

fun and engaging way.

“Some of these formats are

already being played successfully

throughout Canterbury

and this will ensure consistency

throughout our province,” said

Germon.

He said the modifications

connection. He coached the

Coastal women’s premier side

from 2009 to 2012, before

moving on to coach the Pride,

leading them to national titles

in 2013 and 2014.

Turnbull was no mug on the

field himself and is regarded as

one of Coastal’s greatest players.

He previously held the Mainland

Premier League’s all-time

leading goal-scorer record

with 94 goals, a mark that was

only surpassed last month by

would allow children to better

develop their skills, experience

more success, build greater

confidence and be more involved

in each game.

“I’m confident that these

Germon.

A road show of information

sessions will be developed with

local cricket associations in

Canterbury over the winter,

which will provide the opportunity

for parents, children and

others involved in cricket to understand

and ask any questions

about the formats.

Germon finishes up with

Canterbury Cricket at the end

of the month to begin a role as

Kevin Proctor set to make return for Titans following drug ban

GOLD COAST forward Kevin

Proctor is poised to make his

NRL return from a four-match

illicit drug ban with the Titans

facing a tricky task to make the

finals.

Proctor copped the suspension

from the Titans – as well as a

$20,000 fine – after being caught

using what was believed to be

cocaine in Canberra on May 5

following the Anzac test.

Chris McQueen, who often

partnered with Proctor in the

second row for the Titans, told

AAP Proctor’s chomping at the

bit after spending seven weeks

on the sideline. The Titans take

on the South Sydney Rabbitohs

in Sydney tomorrow night.

“He’d be a massive inclusion

for us, the suspension’s been

burning away at him. I’m expecting

a big game for him this

week,” McQueen said.

“He knows how to win games

and he’s not scared of the hard

work, he’s more than willing to

put his body on the line for the

team.

Latest Christchurch news at www.

.kiwi

“He brings a lot of leadership,

we have still got a lot of young

guys who haven’t got a lot of

experience and to have a guy like

him is invaluable.”

Proctor’s last match for the

Titans was their 38- 8 win over

Newcastle in round nine and,

since he’s been banned, Gold

Coast have lost three of their last

four fixtures.

A veteran of 186 games,

Proctor averages 25 tackles per

game this season and his stability

in defence is much needed with

the Titans conceding the third

highest amount of tries in the

NRL.

The 13th-placed Titans are out

of form losing their last three

games on the trot, but McQueen

is demanding a fight for the rest

of the season.

“Mathematically speaking, I

think we’ve only got two or three

losses in us for the rest of the

year,” McQueen said.

“We’ve put ourselves into a

difficult position but we’re going

to fight until the end of the year.”

• By Ross Kiddie

OVER THE years I’ve

made no secret of the fact

that I like sports sedans.

If you add that to my

desire for Lexus product,

and the IS series in total,

then you’d have to agree

that I’m a little bit smitten

with the latest IS – a

series that lands with three

engine options.

Topping the line-up

is a 3-litre V6 petrol at

$107,900, there’s the 2.5-

litre hybrid driveline

($77,300 and $88,700), and

the baby of the series – the

IS200t starting at $74,300.

As its nomenclature suggests,

the latter is a 2-litre

turbocharged model and it

is a car that punches well

above its weight and, in my

opinion, is by far the pick

of the series.

Regular readers will

recall my recent evaluation

on the RC200t, Lexus’

small and sporty coupe,

it was a car I enjoyed

immensely. The IS200t uses

much the same driveline,

but as I’ve eluded to, it is

packaged in a sedan body

shell. The test car was an

F-Sport model and sits

in the line-up at $84,900

which, to my way of thinking,

is good value considering

that it is a premium car

built to all the Lexus values

of quality and performance.

It is high-specced with all

the trimmings for comfort

and convenience along

with a high level of safety.

There are no surprises,

buyers want for nothing.

Under the bonnet sits the

heart of what makes the

IS200t so special – a fourcylinder,

twin-camshaft,

turbocharged engine of

180kW and 350Nm. Both

outputs are realised low in

the rev band at 5800rpm

and 1650rpm respectively.

It drives through an eightspeed

automatic transmission,

and between the two

the flow of power is exciting,

or gentle, depending on

the conditions at any given

time.

When Lexus New

Zealand launched the new

series, motoring journalists

LEXUS IS200T: At home on-road or on the track.

were invited to the Taupo

Motorsport Park and we

were treated to laps on the

circuit under the guise of

professional race drivers. I

can report that all three variants,

yes, even the hybrid,

equipped themselves well

on track, but to me it was

the turbo model that stood

out. The gentle flow of

boost and the quiet and

refined manner with which

the engine operates is true

to the Lexus ideology.

• Price – Lexus IS200t,

$84,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4680mm; width,

1810mm; height,

1430mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 180kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.5sec

• Fuel usage –

7.5l/100km

SHAPE: The Lexus IS200t looks stylish from all angles.

What also makes the IS

rather special is the way

the chassis and suspension

has been set up. Of course,

Lexus’ engineers haven’t lost

sight of the benefits of rearwheel-drive,

and the IS is

set up so that it can be used

in a sporty environment,

the combination of sensible

spring and damper ratings

and perfect steering just

reinforces my adulation.

On my home patch I

took it west on the scenic

route to Terrace Downs. I

didn’t push too hard in the

corners, for I felt the Taupo

experience was enough to

evaluate its handling prowess.

Instead, I travelled at

a leisurely pace, soaking

up the ambience of what

makes Lexus so special as

a brand.

The IS200t travels ever

so quietly and is a joy to

be behind the wheel of. It

is smooth and feels just so

unbelievable from behind

the wheel, the steering is

like turning on velvet and

the chassis responds comfortably

to any broken surface

or directional change.

If quick acceleration is

required the engine and

gearbox respond swiftly

to throttle pressure, an

overtaking manoeuvre

can be achieved in 4sec

while a standstill to acceleration

time of 7.5sec is

just enough to release the

endorphins.

At highway speed the

engine turns over slowly

and economically at just

1750rpm, sipping fuel at

the rate of just seven litres

per 100km (40mpg). When

I took the car back the

trip computer was listing a

9l/100km (31mpg) average

which sits well with Lexus’

7.5l/100km (37mpg) claim.

The IS200t isn’t a big car,

but it does fit five without a

squeeze, the interior detailing

is such that it reeks of

quality and luxury build.

For me, though, it’s all

about performance and I

know it’s a bold statement,

but I firmly believe that as

a series the IS is one of the

world’s great all-rounders.

I applaud Lexus’ product

planners, in an age when

sedans are struggling in a

wilting market, great cars

like the IS, and others, are

rolling out of the Lexus

factories.

I’m the owner of one of

the early forerunners to the

IS series and enjoy it very

much as a daily drive. That

being the case, it would be

a natural transition to step

into an IS, and I’m desperate

to do that, the only

thing standing in my way is

I’m yet to pick the winning

Lotto balls.

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct

the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can

be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky

hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free

of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that

have sold in the past six months.

Check out comparable listings yourself in the real

estate section of your newspaper or on websites.

Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or

the highest possible price.

There has never been a better time to look at

investing in the Oamaru property market! During

the last few months, real estate in the region

has seen a surge in the number of properties

being listed and sold, with some great options in

investment to be found.

Oamaru, is made up of four main suburbs:

Oamaru (central suburb), Oamaru North,

Holmes Hill and South Hill. Average values have

grown relatively comparatively across these

main suburbs and properties are selling, on

average, in about two months.

With a lot of media time in recent weeks, after

data was released showing Oamaru as the fourth

most-viewed New Zealand location on property

website Juwai, we have received a multitude of

calls from out-of-towners who are interested in

investing in property in, or moving to, the North

Otago region.

With a shortage of rentals available, investors

are seeing great returns for what they already

own, and the time is right to increase investment

portfolios. On the other hand, many folk are

also looking at making the move to our region

as they’re seeing the many benefits our lifestyle

here has to offer.

To have a chat about the local

property market, give me a call!

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—

toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale,

or put it into storage—so the house seems more

spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your house, keep

the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded,

rooms spotless and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or

bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey

smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older homes,

to identify—and potentially solve—problems your

buyer’s inspection will discover later.

The Waitaki district is definitely on a roll at the

moment, and that roll looks set to continue

for quite some time yet! With agriculture,

manufacturing and tourism growing strongly

through investment and promotion, Waitaki is

attracting a lot of attention.

Lonely Planet has called Oamaru, “the coolest

town in New Zealand,” and that is a title we are

proud of. Our Council is working hard with our

community to make our district an even more

amazing place.

With so many wonderful attributes going for us,

from our natural environment through to our

built heritage, our eclectic arts and music scene,

and growing economy, we really have a place

with an amazingly positive future.

I’m proud of the sustainable growth we are

experiencing. We are improving opportunities

for our local people, and welcoming a steady but

manageable stream of new people to the area.

They are coming for better lifestyles, good jobs,

business opportunities, and in some cases to

retire. We are a friendly town and a welcoming

district.

If you want to know more, I am

just a phone call away.
